On the June 10 edition of Fox Business' Follow the Money, Bolling discussed the White House hosting the president of Gabon, saying, "So what's with all the hoods in the hizzy? A month after the White House hosted the rapper Common, who glorifies violence on cops, the President opened his doors to one of Africa's most evil dictators. Here's Ali Bongo, the Gabonese president, who's been accused of human rights violations and plundering billions of his country's dollars."
Earlier in the show, Bolling teased the segment by saying: "Guess who's coming to dinner? A dictator. Mr. Obama shares a laugh with one of Africa's kleptocrats. It's not the first time he's had a hoodlum in the hizzouse." As he said this, footage of Common aired onscreen.
"Calling the president of Gabon and Common 'hoods in the hizzy' is not colorful commentary, it is overt racism," said Ari Rabin-Havt, Executive Vice President at Media Matters for America. "Fox had nothing to say when Bolling accused the president of 'chugging 40's' or when he implied Kenya was Obama's 'world.' They cannot stay silent on this. There need to be consequences for this type of rhetoric."
