(Jason Howerton) While hosting two black guests, MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Thursday took it upon himself to apologize for racism on behalf of all “white people.” His comments came after a discussion about race and racial profiling.
“We got to continue this conversation, gentlemen, privately and on television,” Matthews said. “I mean a lot of people out there – I’ll just tell you one thing, and I’m speaking now for all white people, but especially people who have had to try to change the last 50 or 60 years. A lot of them have really tried to change and I’m sorry for this stuff. That’s all I’m saying.”
