Mrs. Juan Williams Says NPR, Not All-White FOX, is Racist

The Fox gatherings are much [more] diverse. They have both African-American and whites. It’s great because when I sometimes go down to Fox and wait for Juan in the green room, they all speak to me as if they know me and are very friendly. I feel very comfortable there. With the NPR people, I did not feel comfortable.

Delise Williams, wife of FOX News darling Juan Williams, who is held up by FOX as proof of liberal hypocrisy. Mrs. Williams’ anger with NPR seems to leave her unbothered by the fact that there are zero non-white show hosts on FOX. Williams was fired by NPR after a series of comments at his “other job,” including that people in traditional Muslim garb on planes make him nervous and that Michelle Obama has this, “Stokely Carmichael-in-a-designer-dress thing going…her instinct is to start with this…you know, I’m the victim.” Williams is on tour promoting his new book, “Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate” which details the harassment and victimization he says he experienced at NPR, where he continues to be a guest on the Diane Rehm Show.

    In the article I was quoting from, in which she was interviewed, Delise Williams was described as, “a light-skinned African-American.”
