The Charlie Kirk Show: A Personal Defense of Donald Trump with Herschel Walker

“How many African-Americans killed by the police rather than African-Americans killed by African-Americans?” he said. “Why are they not talking about that? Do they not care about the African-Americans killed by African-Americans? Is that OK?”


Of all his statements on race, Walker’s sentiments about police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement come close to being the most egregious for amplifying the Black-on-Black crime trope, as if crime in Black communities should be non-existent before Black folks have the right to demand fair, nonviolent treatment from cops.

But even that takes a backseat to his thoughts on reparations, which he explores in this clip, also from September 2020, where he tells Rudy Guiliani of all people, that Black Lives Matter is an invalid sentiment because Walker has a son of mixed ethnicity, and also argues that the concept of reparations should include the descendants of white soldiers from the civil war.

Not sure whether to sheesh or sigh at that one. But Walker may want to figure something else out. The latest Quinnipiac poll numbers from Georgia, released yesterday, show him trailing incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock—the guy who currently pastors MLK’s former church in Atlanta—by 10 points, with a 2.5 percentage point margin of error.

It’s hard to say how much, if at all, that has to do with Walker’s stances on race. Georgia’s demographics are changing the political calculus, especially the closer you get to Atlanta and away from the sticks of rural areas. Trump backed candidates—Walker being the exception—were already bowled over in the GOP primaries.


If he keeps this up, come November Walker might have enough time to go back to the University of Georgia and finish up a degree in Black history.
