Liz Wheeler throws down with Marc Lamont Hill over his ‘all white people are racist’ comments

Temple University professor and Black News Tonight host Marc Lamont Hill explosively claimed that “all white people are racist” in an interview with conservative podcast host Liz Wheeler who proceeded to take him apart piece by piece over it.

Wheeler asked Hill point-blank if he thought all white people were racist. “I don’t know if you’re backing me into a corner with that question but yes, I do,” commented Hill during the interview. “I do believe that all white people are at some level, at the unconscious level, connected to racism, it’s unavoidable. I think all men are sexist at some level. I think that’s absolutely the case.”

When Hill proudly tweeted out that “She asked me if I think all White people are racist…,” Wheeler threw down and responded in her own tweet, “Literally believing that all white people are racist… is a racist ideology.”

Hill’s interview comments were in response to a discussion on Critical Race Theory being used as a tool to promote Marxism in U.S. schools. They received intense blowback.

Wheeler added on Twitter, “BTW, this is the type of racialized Marxism parents don’t want taught to their children in school.”

Former Maryland Republican Congressional nominee Kimberly Klacik slammed Hill, telling him he would “regret this response.”

“That’s like saying all Black people are ghetto,” she admonished him. “It’s neither true nor cool.”

Author Melissa Tate also replied to Hill’s response on white people being racist.

“Racism is evil so Marc is saying all white people are inherently evil. He is also saying this type of evil is unique to white people. This in itself is racism & the same rhetoric Hitler used to demonize & justify murdering millions of Jews,” she tweeted.

Chris Rufo, who is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and the leading voice out there decrying Critical Race Theory, also went after Hill on Twitter, “Now that we’ve cleared that up, the next question: are you a Marxist?”

“I am neither a Marxist nor a Critical Race Theorist. I do, however, think that both lend important insights that we should take seriously. Instead of demonizing, misrepresenting, or making them the subject of moral panic, let’s actually listen and learn,” Hill tweeted in reply.

Rufo has previously gone after Hill over his stance on Critical Race Theory and racism.

Hill issued a statement to Fox News claiming that we “live in a country in which racism is an intractable and unavoidable problem.”

“None of us can avoid being influenced by or connected to white supremacy, even if it is at the subconscious level. Even I, as a Black person, have to consciously unlearn white supremacy,” he posited. “This is lifelong for everyone. Similarly, we must all unlearn sexism and homophobia, regardless of how progressive and well-intentioned we may be. None of us has clean hands. We must all work to be better. That starts with acknowledgment.”

Conservatives on Twitter were not surprised by Hill’s “racist” comments:
