In a speech over the weekend in Arkansas, Democrat Presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke, took the conversation on racism a step further when he claimed America was “founded on racism” and is “still racist today.”

Beto said, “And this country — though we would like to think otherwise — was founded on racism, has persisted through racism and is still racist today.”

Beto went on to make his case for why he feels this way as shown in a five minute video he posted on Twitter, which can be viewed below.

After seeing the video, Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume twisted Beto’s notion back several notches with a brief lesson on how he views the current status of racism actually is in America today.

In his reply to Beto, Brit Hume said, “In fact, no country on earth has done more to overcome racial prejudice both in law and practice.”

“Indeed, racism today is nearly universally rejected in America, which is why the left tries so hard to pin the label on its political opponents,” he declared. See Below
