The famed comedian is very passionate about Black Lives Matter. He had a sit down with Megyn Kelly on Fox News this week and it was contentious.
D.L. Hughley singled out the conservative network for its deliberate bias against the group.
“The only place racism doesn’t exist is Fox News and the police department,” Hughley said. “That’s absolutely true.”
“That’s insulting,” Kelly said in response. “You just insulted millions of people watching this channel.”
“And I’m insulted by the things I hear on this network, so we’re even,” Hughley shot back. “I could care less about insulting people that insult me on a daily basis.”

Hughley responded by pointing out a 2006 FBI report that sounded a warning regarding infiltration of law enforcement agencies by white supremacist groups.
“I don’t know a black man that hasn’t had a run-in with police,” Hughley said. “From the highest to the lowest.”
“You get backed up on that by many people,” she replied.
“My perspective on this is based on the experience I’ve had, just as yours are,” he continued. “So I am not willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.”
Judge for yourself on this debate.
Today would be the day that Sandra Bland's death occurred. You may remember the incident in Texas where a woman from the Chicago area was pulled over by the law. She would have a verbal altercation with the law and then she would be forced out and placed in the cruiser. As she was being detained, she would end up being dead. The law said that she may have committed suicide. The family didn't buy this excuse and it led to the #SayHerName campaign.
As expected, conservatives were dismissing her death as another example of "rushing to judgment".
