Juan Williams Interview
Are you still angry about being fired by NPR? I was upset at the idea of how personal it became. I felt NPR engaged in an ad hominem attack on me.
You say you’ve been described as a black man with conservative social views. That’s certainly what I heard back from NPR managers who said I didn’t fit the box—“You don’t necessarily represent orthodox black views on the news.” In their mind, when I write about dysfunction in the black community, I’ve crossed the line in terms of being a good black guy.
Have you taken heat from African-Americans who find you not “liberal”enough? People say, “Why are you airing dirty laundry? Why are you being supportive of a Bill Cosby?”
Do some of your liberal friends resent your being on Fox? Oh, sure. Some people feel that by simply being there I am legitimizing Sean Hannity or conservative viewpoints. Those shows are hit shows whether I’m there or not. Nobody at Fox tells me what to say.
Does this sort of criticism bother you? It bothers me deeply. People who are not able to put me in a box, people who want to tune in to programming that simply affirms their existing opinions, those people are discomfited by me. The idea that you wouldn’t hold black political leaders accountable strikes me as corrupt.
Who’s your favorite Republican presidential candidate? I like Tim Pawlenty a lot, but he just hasn’t gained any traction. I have trouble with people like Herman Cain when they say the folks in Tennessee have a right to deny Muslims the right to build a mosque. What’s next, you can’t build a church or a synagogue?
Could the News of the World scandal hurt Fox? I don’t see that it extends into any of the U.S. properties controlled by Rupert Murdoch. For people who don’t like Murdoch and don’t like Fox, people who are the haters, they’re looking for an opportunity to see if this can allow them to bring him down.
Would you like to have your own show? Sure. When TV executives talk to me, they say, “Well, we don’t have any blacks in prime time on cable.” They doubt that black men watch news. They say that black men watch sports and women. I say I think I can appeal to an audience beyond that.

Juan Williams: Nowhere to go for black Republicans
Trump supporters are rare among black people. President Trump won just 8 percent of the black vote in 2016.
His family business’ sordid history of housing discrimination and his racially insensitive comments — “look at my African American over here” — leave black Trump supporters open to mockery and charges of self-hate.
A few black people thought they had a winning strategy for dealing with Trump. In exchange for access to his presidential power, they’d ignore warning signs and jump on his bandwagon. How did that work out for you, Omarosa?
Trump reacted to her critical book by calling her a “dog” and a “crazed, crying low-life.”
Kanye West similarly went to the White House in a red “Make America Great Again” hat before realizing he was being “used” by Trump backers “to spread messages I don’t believe in.”
The rapper then announced he was done with politics. He also tweeted that, unlike Trump, he favors gun control and support for immigrants, including “love and compassion for people seeking asylum.”
All that was bad enough. Now it is getting worse for the black conservatives trying to find a place in the party of Trump.
Exhibit A is how Trump went out of his way to trash the first black Republican congresswoman, Utah’s Mia Love, after she lost a hard-fought reelection battle last month.
“Mia Love gave me no love. And she lost,” Trump sneered. “Too bad. Sorry about that, Mia.”
After Trump insulted her, Love told supporters: “This election…shines a spotlight on the problems Washington politicians have with minorities and black Americans.”
No, this is not a race problem afflicting all Republicans or all Washington politicians. It is more accurately labeled a ‘Trump politician race problem.’
It is Trump who emboldened racists by saying that a march of white supremacists — and the people who protested against them — featured “fine people on both sides.”
Trying to make sense of Trump’s bad record on dealing with people who are not white, Love argued: “It’s transactional. It’s not personal.”
Wrong, congresswoman. It is personal.
His family business was sued in the 1970s for refusing to rent apartments to black people. He never apologized for wrongly blaming five black and Latino teenagers for a brutal attack on a woman in New York’s Central Park. How can it not be personal for Mexicans when Trump described Mexican immigrants as criminals and “rapists”?
As Colin Powell, a black Republican, once wrote, Trump is a “national disgrace.” As Condoleezza Rice, another black Republican, said, she is “uncomfortable [with] what I see and hear,” from Trump.
It is personal.
Next year, the 116th Congress will be the most racially diverse in history due to a record number of black and Latino Democrats.
There will be just two black Republicans — Rep. Will Hurd of Texas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina.
At the moment, Scott is performing a high wire act in dealing with Trump.
He recently opposed Trump’s nomination of Thomas Farr to a federal judgeship. Farr has a long history of defending racially discriminatory legislation — namely overly stringent voter identification and gerrymandering — in North Carolina. “We are not doing a very good job of avoiding the obvious potholes on race in America and we ought to be more sensitive when it comes to those issues,” Scott said in explaining his opposition to Trump’s nominee.
When criticized by the Wall Street Journal editorial page for buying into “racial attacks,” Scott responded with a letter calling on Trump and the GOP to “stop bringing candidates with questionable track records on race” up for Senate confirmation.
Scott similarly broke with his party earlier this year to oppose Ryan Bounds, another Trump judicial nominee with a troubling history on race. As a college student Bounds wrote articles in the Stanford Review that “ridiculed multiculturalism,” according to The Washington Post.
Scott also flies away from Trump by championing economic development for black America.
While Trump is cutting the Minority Business Development Agency and neighborhood block grants (as I detail in my new book, “‘What The Hell Do You Have to Lose?’ — Trump’s War on Civil Rights”), Scott is crisscrossing the country on a national “Opportunity Tour.” He is pushing conservative ideas for boosting economic development in minority neighborhoods.
Scott insisted on a provision in last year’s Trump tax cut law that creates “opportunity zones,” making economically-disadvantaged areas eligible for new federal tax breaks.
But here again, up pops the problem of being a black conservative when all Republican politics is defined by loyalty to Trump.
While he got a good provision into the Trump tax bill as the price for his vote, Scott still ended up supporting a Trump tax cut that in the short run benefits the richest one percent of Americans.
That historic scam is exploding the deficit to pay for tax breaks for corporations and the rich. That means less federal dollars to help poor neighborhoods in need of revitalization.
I am rooting for Scott and other principled black conservatives to reclaim the mantle of the party of Lincoln. There is a lot to lose if black conservative approaches to racial progress are sunk due to Trump loyalty tests.
But the prospects for Scott and other black conservatives locked in the party of Trump look dim. They have nowhere to go as political polarization and racial divisions harden in advance of the 2020 election.
