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.

Flummoxed at what he perceives as a lack of loyalty from black people to President Donald Trump for the lowest black unemployment rate ever (a trend that began under former President Barack Obama), Stein said that black people were attached to being the "underdog."

Watch below:

Stein said:

"I don't know why it isn't true but there is a very deep attachment to black people feeling like they're the underdogs and feeling like they've been victimized."

The comments shocked many, given the rampant institutional racism still widespread in the United States—especially in regards to voting rights, criminal justice, and police brutality.

People were quick to call out Stein.

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.

Bad form, Ben.

If you'd rather remember Ben Stein the way he was, Ferris Bueller's Day Off is available here.

If you're a hardcore Trump-supporter, there's no better place to have your wedding than one of his golf clubs.

A New Jersey couple having a MAGA-themed wedding (yes, really) at Trump's Bedminster resort even went so far as to tuck Trump 2020 flags into the brides dress.
