On Wednesday’s edition of The Five, the Fox News show went over North Carolina NAACP head Rev. William Barber‘s comments about Sen.Tim Scott (R-SC). During that segment, co-host Eric Bolling asked his fellows “Is there racism?”, and answered “I don’t think there’s racism.”
NewsOne Now host Roland Martin took issue with Bolling’s assessment Thursday morning, dubbing him his “Stuck on Stupid Person of the Week.”

Let’s move on.”
“Really, Eric?” Martin said. “No racism? A black president, and other black folks have all these jobs, and there’s no racism, it’s magically disappeared? Here’s what Bolling could have discovered in a 0.43-second Google search, using the words EEOC and racism.”
