Popular late-night comedian Stephen Colbert took a moment on "The Late Show" last night to weigh in on race relations and police shootings in the U.S.

“Without courting any controversy, I want to say that the police have a very hard job putting their lives on the line, and the vast majority are good people,” he said.

“On the other hand, black people aren’t imagining this stuff,” Colbert added.

"I think Stephen Colbert used to be funny. I'm not sure what happened to him," Eric Bolling said on "The Five."

Bolling asserted the numbers show that the rate at which African Americans commit crime is commensurate with the amount of times that they end up dead at the hand of a cop.

Jesse Watters agreed and cited a Washington Post study that found that 95 percent of fatal shootings by police in 2015 were justified.

"So this idea that this Back Lives Matter movement is this real movement based on facts, is just not true," Watters stated.
