Van Jones Leaves CNN Panel Speechless After Suggesting That White Men Be Racially Profiled

On yesterday’s edition of CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, political commentator Van Jones responds to a CBS interview Donald Trump gave Sunday suggesting that American Muslims should be racially profiled to prevent terrorist attacks.

“Well I think profiling is something that we’re going to have to start thinking about as a country. Other countries do it. You look at Israel and you look at others, they do it and they do it successfully. And I hate the concept of profiling but we have to start using common sense and we have to use our heads,” the  presumptive Republican presidential nominee said Sunday.

However, Jones believes young white males are the ones who need to be racially profiled. In the video clip from the segment, Jones says, “You are seven times more likely to be killed by a right wing extremist — a racist or an anti-government nut job — seven times more likely than a Muslim.”
