Things got so heated on “The Kelly File” Monday that former New Black Panthers president Makik Shabazz accused host Megyn Kelly of being a white supremacist.
Shabazz, who is currently the national president of Black Lawyers for Justice, claimed that young blacks “are being killed by police officers on a regular basis,” going back to the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
“Michael Brown was the aggressor,” Kelly put in and observed that the Justice Department, then headed by Attorney General Eric Holder, cleared Officer Darren Wilson of all charges in the shooting.
Shabazz wasn’t buying it and after arguing the point he accused Kelly’s attitude of being “part of the problem.”
“White supremacy, white privilege, is believing that an unarmed black man … being killed by an armed police officer is somehow our fault,” he said, while white suspects get a pass.
“For the record, I’m not a white supremacist,” Kelly said.
But Shabazz wouldn’t let the notion of Kelly being a white supremacist go.
“But that’s a position that you believe your lives are better than ours,” he argued.
Kelly then accused her guest of “time and time again” making racially insensitive statements.
“That’s why it’s so hard to take you seriously,” she said.
Kelly later acknowledged that there have been “some bad police shootings,” but added that they’re the exception — not the rule, as evidenced by the legal system clearing police officers of wrongdoing.
“It’s worse than bad police shootings — it’s a bad system,” Shabazz claimed. “And the country is going totally in the wrong direction, and until we get justice, there’s not going to be no peace.”
He added that the black community is entitled to receive “reparations and compensation for all the blood that you’re spilling of our blood, then Miss Kelly, there cannot be peace.”
He then accused the Fox News host of being a part of “the white power structure.”
