Trump Supporter Ben Stein Slammed After Saying Black People Have A 'Deep Attachment' To Feeling 'Victimized'
Trump Supporter and economist Ben Stein is getting called out for racist comments he made during Trish Regan Primetime on Fox Business Channel.

Several of them used the film Ferris Bueller's Day Off, in which Stein makes a cameo, to troll him.

What's more, they clarified that black people don't have an "attachment" to being victimized, but that it's an objective reality that institutional and social racism victimizes black people and others.
