White Fox Guest Says He Rejects the ‘Identity Politics’ of Identifying as Black or Hispanic

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 1.08.10 PMFormer U.S. ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton was on Fox News’ Outnumbered today and he had some thoughts on race to share with the panelists.

While discussing Donald Trump‘s outreach to communities of color and his claims that rival Hillary Clinton is a bigot, it went like this:

He talked about how the integration of diverse people into society has been America’s “formula for success,” then said this:

Now you have people who want to say, “My identity is black,” or, “My identity is Hispanic.” I absolutely reject identity politics. I think we are 300 million plus individuals and I just don’t understand why people can’t get to the point where they accept what Martin Luther King said 50 years ago: He wants people judged by the content of heir character, not the color of their skin!

Yeah, a white man said he “absolutely” rejects the identity politics of identifying as a certain race.

He went on to say that segregation is wrong, whether someone is segregating someone else or themselves on the basis of skin color.

“Try your accomplishments!” he suggested.
