'We're splitting ourselves' - Glenn opens up honest conversation about racism

Lawrence Jones, a recognizable member of TheBlaze TV network, joined Glenn's program Wednesday evening along with several of his friends for an open conversation about racism in America.

A former Obama supporter who once bought into the idea all Republicans were racist, Lawrence shared the story of what changed his heart.

Watch the clip below.

Later in the program, Glenn dove into a very honest dialogue about racism with Lawrence and a few of his friends, who happened to disagree with him about certain black-lives-matter vs all-lives-matter issues.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: What I really try to want to get to, and Lawrence, you said this the other day, that there are some things that people can do to each other that would calm the seas a bit.

LAWRENCE: I was talking about I’m not saying that all white people should feel guilty. I’m not talking about slavery, I’m talking about the civil rights movement. But I think it would help if some black people could see some white people come to them and say look, my ancestors may have or may not have participated in that, but I’m sorry. I’m sorry. What happened was screwed up.

GLENN: Does that make a difference to you?

BRITTNEY: You know, I think it would make a difference because a lot of times you just try and gauge the situation. If I can be honest, I try and gauge the situation with a white person if they’re going to treat me right or if they’re going to treat me with respect or if they’re going to be disrespectful. I think it’s a big culture barrier between all of us.

GLENN: Because that’s really risky for you to say, can I be really risky back?

BRITTNEY: Yes, sir.

GLENN: I gauge, and I didn’t used to do this until the last five, eight years. I now gauge in a conversation with a black person, are you hostile? Are you going to try to trap me? Are you going to immediately assume I’m a racist, and so you’re trying to trap me into something? Do you know what I mean? Does that make sense?

BRITTNEY: Trap you into?

GLENN: Trap me into, take something that I say, instead of—I just said black. What do you mean, black? Why isn’t it African-American? You know what I mean?

BRITTNEY: That makes sense.

GLENN: So we’re at the situation to where we’re not really talking to each other because you’re gauging me, I’m gauging you, and we’re wasting time.

LAWRENCE: That’s part of the problem. It’s like everybody, you see it on news network every single day. There needs to be a conversation, but in order for a conversation to take place, the conversation needs to be unfiltered, and people to be able to lay out their heart, both white and black.

BRITTNEY: I agree.

SHANE: The conversation also needs to be fostered by some genuine desire for earnest communication. Right now we’re in the situation where—

GLENN: Everybody’s trying to win.

SHANE: Well, yeah, that’s right. This isn’t a competition, and this isn’t a sensationalistic news media issue. This is a human dignity issue, and having conversations like this like we had in the green room, that’s what’s going to effect change.

LAWRENCE: But there’s some people on both sides that are opposed to that. I posted on my Facebook, Glenn, the other day, that some of my friends are part of black lives matter and they’re going to be coming on the show. Some of the hate that I got was how could you be friends with them? Because I love them. I trust them more than I trust you because they have my back. I know at the end of the day we disagree politically, but I know that if I’m in need, they’re going to make sure I have food, a roof over my head.

GLENN: We never used to split ourselves. I’m older than all of you guys, but we didn’t split ourselves the way we’re splitting ourselves now. When push came to shove, we were still all Americans.

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
