Fox News host Greg Gutfeld claimed to have the cure for racial tensions that have caused weeks of unrest across the nation.
During fiery remarks on “The Five” on Friday, Gutfeld addressed the misconceptions about what binds or drives apart the races, asserting that humanity is generally united in “achievement, not grievance,” as he slammed the “pasty, white wimps” behind much of the vandalism across the nation sparked by protests over George Floyd’s death.

“I don’t think words are enough anymore. I think there needs to be some kind of action,” Gutfeld said, reacting to President Trump calling out some of the protesters as “agitators” and “terrorists.”
“The gun violence in Chicago is a reality. What you’re seeing going on in America is a racial hysteria, so why is one gaining attention and the other isn’t?” Gutfeld asked.
“I believe that the worst thing a black community can do as a whole is take advice from coddled, white, over-caffeinated, over-educated, under-experienced, left-wing individuals,” the co-host of “The Five” contended.
“Because look at the consequences, the black on black crime or the gang violence or the gun violence is ignored but everybody’s running around tearing down statues” Gutfeld continued.
“So I want to end the race war that we seem to be experiencing today. I am going to blow your mind with this, okay? There are more differences and and conflict within whites then there are between whites and blacks,” he asserted. “When you look at those pasty white wimps out there running around vandalizing and destroying property, I realize that I have absolutely nothing in common with these laughable losers.”
“And in fact, when anybody looks at the TV, they realize they have nothing in common as a white person with these failures. It is insulting to me and it’s insulting to every white person that you think that race binds us — it doesn’t bind us,” Gutfeld argued.
“I have more in common with black winners than white losers. And that is the truth of all human beings. What ties us together is achievement and not grievance,” he added. “So white winners and black winners are on the same side, and stay away from the white losers because they are poisoning the minds of everybody . That will end racism if all the winners of every race and color joined together and laugh at the losers.”
“I like that idea,” co-host Jesse Watters quipped, noting how the founder of Black Entertainment Television, billionaire Robert Johnson, said last week that people tearing down statues “have the mistaken assumption that black people are sitting around cheering for them,” adding that “black people laugh at white people who do this.”
Liberal co-host Juan Williams accused President Trump of blowing up “a few instances of looting and bad behavior” during his interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“Suddenly, cities are war zones, Afghanistan, suddenly these people are terrorists, they are threatening our social fabric. The reality is that his message is just not working,” Williams contended.
The president has made it clear he will not tolerate the desecration and vandalizing of historic statues and monuments, telling Hannity that “hundreds of people” have already been arrested.

Williams accused Trump of using “horrible imagery and language because he doesn’t have a message.”
Gutfeld shot back, arguing that the president is not the one “killing people in Chicago” or looting.
“These things are actually real, they’re not fantasies,” he said, acknowledging that Trump “could do a better job facing these problems” but that doesn’t mean “you can lay those problems on him and say that’s he’s conjuring” it up in order to win the election.
“You’ve got to wake up to this, and start helping your party face the truth,” Gutfeld exclaimed.
