While defending Sen. Jeff Sessions' alleged racist past, Fox News regular Sheriff Clarke said if Sessions did call a black person "boy," and a person got upset, they were being "hypersensitive" since he refers to himself as a "Milwaukee boy" all the time.

I kid you not.

These types of racial apologists are popping up everywhere.

Every honest American knows the history of the term "boy" and how it is applied to African Americans....and it certainly isn't an adjective for describing what town a person comes from.

There's nothing that makes conservatives madder than calling them racists, even with the rise of the alt-Right/neo-Nazi movement literally Hitler-saluting a Trump presidency.

Clarke explained this sentiment in detail when he was angry that Sessions character was being attacked and told Megyn Kelly on Fox News Monday night, " There's only three things in life, just the mere allegation can be career destroying."

He continued, "It's to be accused of being a domestic abuser when it's not true, a child molester when it's not true or a racist when it's not true."

Sen. Jeff Sessions has a long history being on the hot seat on the basis of race and it was Republicans that shot down his being appointed a federal judgeship.

Megyn Kelly asked 'why would Sessions put the head of the KKK in jail if he was a racist and while guest Eric Guster was trying to answer Kelly's question, Clarke wouldn't stop talking even after Kelly told him to hold on.

Clarke continued speaking, "Look, nobody's perfect. If he made some statements, he called somebody boy. Megyn, I refer to myself as that."

Guster, "Can I answer the question?"

Clarke continued, "When someone says, Sheriff, where you from? I tell them, I tell them I'm a Milwaukee boy. OK, if some people are offended by that, I get that, but that's being hypersensitive.

Guster replied, "Oh, my God."

OMG, indeed!
