However, Limbaugh’s rejection of systemic racism led to a surprising exchange.

“I don’t get white privileges,” Limbaugh said towards the beginning of the interview.

However, Limbaugh doubled his position.

“White supremacy or white privilege is a structure of today’s Democratic Party, and as they reveal, I will not agree with any aspect of it,” Limbaugh said. “I do not deny that there are some individuals out there who think they are better than other people. But structurally, institutionally white supremacy – this is a structure.”

“Can’t you see how whites behave better in this country?” Charlamagne asked.

Limbaugh said that he has been “mistreated” by companies, groups and individuals all his life.

“I was fired nine times in my career,” Limbaugh said.

“But did you ever throw your car because you drove a nice car?” Charlamagne asked. “Have you ever been caressed for being black?”

“My car was keyed,” Limbaugh replied. “I blew my tires. Sure.”

“I’m talking about throwing your car by a police officer because you’re driving a nice car!” Said Charlamagne. “Or the area where you walk down the street in Queens and the police took you back and caressed. Did they come to you?”

“No, look, I’m a monk, a hermit, and I’m not going out and doing that kind of thing,” Limbaugh said. “No, nothing has ever happened to me, I’ll give it to you.”

But then Limbaugh stepped back quickly, “Well, actually, that’s not true.”

“Oh, hurry, stop!” Said Charlamagne.

The interview ended shortly afterwards, and Limbaugh and the “Breakfast Club” hosts said they appreciated the dialogue.
