During an interview set to air Tuesday night with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer called President Obama’s continued palling around with Al Sharpton “a disgrace.”

Krauthammer’s comments on Sharpton came after he and Hewitt talked about how the nation has “radically changed,” noting that the U.S. has black men currently sitting as attorney general and as the head of Homeland Security, in addition to the presidency.

“Should the president continue to pal around with Al Sharpton?” Hewitt asked.

“No,” responded Krauthammer. “That’s a disgrace.”

“Nobody over the age of nine is not aware of the fact that this country is radically changed. For God’s sake, we have a black president, a black attorney general, a black head of Homeland Security,” Krauthammer said. “Fifty years ago, blacks were being legally segregated in parts of the country. This country has changed itself more, and in a better way in race relations than any country in the history of the world, and I think it’s a remarkable achievement.”

“And I think these people that are whipping up this sentiment, they know that is true. But after all, they live off race hatred. They live off racial tension,” he continued. “They blackmail, they raise their money. That’s how they do what they do and they will continue to make it the case as long as they get away with it.”
