Ray White spoke to US foreign policy expert Brooks Spector.

Spector says this is nothing new.

His persona, his value system seems to have race as a particularly foreboding part to it. If you look further back together with his father, the two of them as real estate investors had been sued by the federal government on race discrimination cases in apartment buildings that they had owned at the time.

Brooks Spector, US foreign policy expert
