BET founder Robert Johnson during a Wednesday interview with Fox News described people toppling statues as “borderline anarchists” and pushed back against the idea that black people support such behavior, suggesting instead that they “laugh” at those who knock down the statues.
“You know black people, in my opinion, black people laugh at white people who do this, the same way we laugh at white people who say we got to take off the TV shows,” he said mentioning the “Dukes of Hazard,” a decades-old television program that has come under fire for featuring a car emblazoned with a Confederate flag graphic.
He pointed out that knocking over a statue will not “close the wealth gap,” “give a kid whose parent’s can’t afford a college money to go to college,” “close the labor gap between what white workers are paid and what black workers are paid” or “take people off welfare or food stamps.”
Johnson said that whites who seek to “assuage guilt by doing things that make them feel good” would be much more reluctant to support payments for blacks.
Referring to actions such as “changing names, toppling statues, [and] firing professors because they said all lives matter,” Johnson explained that “it just shows to me that white America is continually … incapable of recognizing that black people have their own ideas and thought about what’s in their best interests.”
He suggested that black people should be consulted before people take actions like tearing down statues or firing someone for a comment they have made.

You wont see the BLM come to the table nor the Antifa, that isnt their thing their task. These useful idiots have a plan to keep agitating all summer long, unless we stop them. It isnt groups of mourning blacks blocking roads, black businesses targeted for the crime of participating in capitalism.
Charles Manson would be so proud of this HELTER SKELTER to create a race war.
This is the same Robert Johnson who laughingly wants blacks to further marginalize themselves by creating their own new political party.
This is short-sighted at the very least.
And as for his placing a wedge between blacks and white liberals who topple statues, how stupid is that?
However, in fairness to him, were he a woman, or were he to even “Identify” as a woman, he’d be on Biden’s short list for VP.
He is correct in his criticism of the woke whiteys. Almost 80% of these anarchists are dems. They’ve also supported the violence by not denouncing it or by flat out expressing support. The dem party owns the riots and they should be referred to as “the democrat riots”.
