(Raw Story) – A guest on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program walked out of the studio Thursday night to protest the bizarre arguments of another guest about the fatal shooting of a black man by a South Carolina police officer.
Jesse Lee Peterson, a black conservative pundit who strongly criticizes black political leaders, compared the fatal police shooting of Walter Scott to the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, reported Mediaite.
“Americans have overreacted,” Peterson said, as fellow guest Leo Terrell loudly protested. “What I’m saying here is that we’ve got to stop overreacting.”
Hannity steps in and asks Terrell, a civil rights attorney and talk radio host, to let Peterson continue speaking.
“We should wait for due process, because I don’t think Americans understand how angry and brainwashed these young black folks are,” Peterson said, and Terrell mutters “oh, God,” as the conservative guest paused.
