Scott was responding to Hostin’s previous remarks that black and Hispanic Republicans are ‘oxymorons.’
“That’s an oxymoron—a black Republican,” Hostin raged last week on the show.
Despite pushback from others on the set, Hostin continued her rampage, rightly claiming to not understand blacks or Hispanics who vote Republican.
“I don’t understand black Republicans and I don’t understand Latino Republicans,” she said.
In response, Scott alluded to the racist comments that the Left has made about him through the years as a black man who is an established Republican politician.
Over the course of my time in politics, the far left has called me a “prop,” a “token,” the N-word, “Uncle Tim,” and worse all because I am a Black Republican.
This type of divisive behavior is not what America is all about — and it will not stop me from speaking the truth. https://t.co/Wp3EtV9uPq

“Over the course of my time in politics, the far left has called me a ‘prop,’ a ‘token,’ the n-word, ‘uncle Tim,’ and worse all because I am a black Republican,” Scott wrote.
“This type of divisive behavior is not what America is all about — and it will not stop me from speaking the truth,” he continued.
Of course, Hostin is the same divisive racist who several months ago suggested that black Americans purchase guns because they are scared of being killed by white supremacists.
“If you listen to the FBI’s statistics, we had FBI Director [Christopher] Wray testify that the greatest threat in the United States is white supremacy—and who are the victims of white supremacy?” Hostin said at the time.
“Generally, they are African Americans, and so I really believe that that is why you are seeing African Americans now buying guns and arming themselves and protecting themselves.”
