Marc Lamont Hill Might Debate Racists, But Draws the Line at Touching Them

Marc Lamont Hill may chance running into a racist every now and then by being a pundit for Marc_lamont_HillFox News, but he’s not here for racists.

Hill tweeted about an incident at a sports bar in Detroit where he ran into a guy who made a comment about blacks, then proceeded to stick his hand out to greet Hill, but Hill wasn’t having it.

Hill tweeted that an “old white guy” approached him and the people he was with to ask, “What are you blacks doing here?”

That immediately made Hill feel some kind of way, as it should have. What would be the reaction if a black person walked into a bar and asked, “where did all the white people come from?”

“So, me and the people I’m with are looking like we’re getting punked,” tweeted Hill. Hill’s reaction to the outstretched hand? He said only “Nah.” Because who wants to shake the hand of an old white man who is shocked at the sight of black people?

That’s when the other white people at the bar turned on the white patron, saying “Get out of here, Henry,” and  “You’re embarrassing all of us.”

Unbeknownst to Hill, “Henry” had been misbehaving all night.

“Apparently, Henry had been using the n-word all night,” Hill tweeted. “We just didn’t hear him. They told the server what happened and they made him leave.”

According to Hill, he wasn’t so much offended as he was befuddled at the man’s “bizarre” behavior.

“But I appreciate the white customers for saying something,” he explained. “It matters.”
