But It's Not About Race (The "Hoodlum in the Hizzouse" Edition)

It would just be easier for everyone involved to admit that Fox Business News' Eric Bolling is a racist. If it looks like a piece of shit racist, and it talks like a piece of shit racist, and it smells like a piece of shit racist...

During the opening of Fox Business' Follow the Money on Friday, Eric Bolling teased a segment about the White House hosting the president of Gabon by saying, "Guess who's coming to dinner? A dictator. Mr. Obama shares a laugh with one of Africa's kleptocrats. It's not first time he's had a hoodlum in the hizzouse."
When he used the term "chugging 40s" to describe President Obama having a Guinness on his trip to Ireland, he denied it was a racist thing to say, even though we knew better. And now he's using phrases like "hoodlums in the hizzouse" and "So what's with all the hoods in the hizzy?" Oh my! Fox Business News' Grand Cyclops Eric Bolling could barely tolerate one black man in the White House, but allowing another one in for a meeting?! That's outrageous!

And check out the chyron:

It's not even thinly veiled racism. They don't even try to disguise it anymore. It's just out in the open for all to see and it's fucking vile.
