Sunny Hostin discussed racial divides on The View, disagreeing with Nikki Haley’s comments.

Alyssa Farah Griffin and Hostin debated whether the majority of Americans are racist.

Hostin cited her son’s experience of being called the N-word, prompting a discussion about lived experiences and racism in the US.

“I don’t agree with where Nikki Haley is on race. I’m much closer to where Joe Biden is in 2021,” Alyssa Farah Griffin said.

“I don’t think the American people are racist, I think there’s a history of racism. Or Vice President Harris saying, ‘No, I don’t believe that America is racist but there’s a history and we are still living with racism that we have to deal with.’ It is not the vast majority of people in this country.”

“The FBI director said White supremacy is the biggest threat to our country today,” Hostin said.

“If you looked like me, you would believe differently,” Hostin said.

“Just to understand, do we think the vast majority of Americans are racist? That’s what I’m trying to…help me understand,” Farah Griffin added.

“I think there is a significant portion that are racist and you can’t dismiss my lived experience,” Hostin said, to which Farah Griffin said she “never would.”

“When I say that there are a lot of racists in this country, I just experienced my son, walking down the beach, being called the N-word several times in Florida,” Hostin said. “So you can’t say, ‘I believe that the vast majority of people aren’t racist.’ We don’t know that and my lived experience…”

“There are 300 million people in this country. I would never minimize your lived experience, any more than I would mine as an Arab woman,” Farah Griffin cut in.
