Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said something during a Thursday appearance on Phoenix news station that seemed to surprise her interviewer.

“Different ethnic groups have sort of different predilections for crimes,” Coulter told KSAZ anchor Troy Hayden in an interview to promote her latest book. “And I go through the various groups (in my book) and the various types of crimes.”

Hayden then asked her: “You were quoted as saying Mexicans are more likely to rape children. Is that correct? Did I quote you correctly?”

Coulter said it was correct.

“That’s a big thing,” Coulter said. “You will find a lot of it. And you find the media, the main point I’m making in my book, is how the media hides it.”

In addition to the crimes Mexicans are more likely to commit, according to Coulter, she listed other nationalities as well.

“With the Albanians, it’s credit card fraud. Nigerians, credit card fraud. Russians, human smuggling,” Coulter said.

“People might say that’s very racist talk from you,” the anchor pressed her. “You’re basically saying this race of people or this nationality of people commit these types of crimes.”

Coulter replied, “Well, a predilection, yeah.”

Watch the full interview, from KSAZ, below. Her comments about ethnic groups begin at 3:40.
