Charlamagne Tha God Debates Rush Limbaugh After He Says White Privilege Doesn't Exist


Just weeks after Joe Biden told Charlamagne Tha God that black people weren't really black if they opted to re-elect Donald Trump for president, The Breakfast Club host sat down with conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh. The two discussed the current political climate on the radio show, including the police-involved killing of George Floyd. While Limbaugh admitted that he was "sickened" by the 46-year-old unarmed man's death, he was adamant that white privilege doesn't exist.

“What happened to George Floyd sickened me, and I wanted to reach out to you and tell you all this," Rush Limbaugh said. "I want to make sure you have no doubt and I’m not the only American who feels this way — the senselessness of it." Charlamagne Tha God added, “R.I.P. to George Floyd but that was not an isolated incident, this is a regular occurrence. How are you going to use your privilege as a white male to combat this prejudice?”
Things got interesting when Limbaugh said he “doesn’t buy into the notion of white privilege.” He added that he thinks the concept of white privilege is "a liberal, political construct right along the lines of political correctness, it’s designed to intimidate and get people to shut up and admit they’re guilty of doing things they haven’t done... I don’t have any white privilege.”
“You’re being delusional,” Charlamagne, retorted. “You know what white privilege is? White privilege is what happened to George Floyd wouldn’t have happened to a white man." Later, when it was suggested that Limbaugh return to The Breakfast Club for a follow-up interview, Charlamagne Tha God stated he would only be open to it if the conservative talk show host would have an "honest conversation" about white privilege, but Limbaugh wasn't budging on his stance.
“I’m not denying that there are certain individuals out there that think they are better than other people. But structurally, institutionally, white supremacy — that’s a construct,” Limbaugh said. “We’re all mistreated. I’ve been fired nine times in my career... It’s called life and it happens.” Watch the full conversation below.
