White TV host who hates black cause and issues

bill o'reilly

Conservative political commentator Bill O’Reilly chose to walk a fine line again with his views as he discussed the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and the race problem in America on Monday, July 22.

After George Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder, many protests for justice have taken place across the country, with the focal point being the injustice for Martin because of his race. If Zimmerman and Martin had been the same race, perhaps the trial would have ended differently.

In response to President Barack Obama’s statement on Friday regarding the Zimmerman trial, and his personal experience with being perceived as a threat in some quarters, O’Reilly had much to add to the conversation.

“Many black Americans harbor at least some resentment for past injury,” O’Reilly said.” But what President Obama surely knows is that you cannot reach a fair verdict or implement effective public policy by dwelling on the sins of the past.”

O’Reilly said in his broadcast that talking about the race problem in America was a problem in itself.

“When you hear a pundit politician say we should have a ‘conversation’ about race, that means you’re in for a sea of bloviating,” O’Reilly said. “Which will likely lead absolutely nowhere.”

O’Reilly said the leadership in the United States, including Obama, have no idea how to handle the problems that arise in the black community.

Although he said Martin was killed because of his criminal appearance, not race, O’Reilly followed with statistics that suggested young black males have a propensity for criminal behavior — citing that young black men commit homicide at a rate 10 times higher than white and Hispanic men alone.

“The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African American family,” O’Reilly said. “Right now about 73 per cent of all black babies are born out of wedlock. That drives poverty.”

These personal decisions, O’Reilly said, have led to the issues the black community is facing.

“Hey listen you green-heads, if a kid can’t speak proper English, uses the f-word in every sentence, is disgraceful as disrespectful, is disrespectful, in his or her manner, that child will never, never be able to compete in the marketplace in America, never,” he said. “And it has nothing to do with slavery. It has everything to do with you Hollywood people and you derailing parents. You are the ones hurting these vulnerable children.”

    I truly don’t understand what you are trying to get at. Do you disagree with what he said and if so, what are the true stats? There is a genocide going on in the black communities and the usual race baiters, so called civil rights leaders, the racist Congressional Black Caucus, and Obama are doing nothing about it. The unemployment rate in black communities is higher than any other and nothing is being done about that. Where are the marches, where are the speeches, where are the leaders?

    I agree , I hate that we tag everything as racist, what he is saying is a fact and a problem. Im black so does that mean I need to talk like II have no god damn sense? I know people like zimmermann when I was growing up, They are arrogant and have a secret hate for blacks, b
    ut I also know that that guy in out neighborhood was also hated so naturally He did everything in his power to get a black person in trouble, maybe zimmermann felt that way.

    O’Reilly was brilliant and on point as usual… there is not one thing he said that can be seen as wrong or hateful…….. its a sad day when people would rather paint such a man as HATEFUL instead of listening to the facts he speaks of…..

      You’re telling us that the guy who said the “tide goes in, tide goes out, never a miscommunication. You can’t explain that.” Is brilliant as usual? Really? Really???

      Bill O’Reilly is a hate mongrel…the type of person Fox News embraces. Remember a few years ago when O’Reilly was charged with harassing a female staff member with filthy, sex-related phone calls and the owner of Fox News was charged in England with tapping cell phones of celebrities and even that of a murdered child? His editor is now serving time in prison. Anyone that gets their news from Fox is of the same ilk. Condemn others but keep your ow smut hidden. They’ll sell their souls(or their own mother for a buck).

    Its not often as a black man I can say i agree with bill O’Reilly but I do on this one ….. the problems in the black community starts with family and more importantly education. … not to mention the worthless entertainment our young black people look up to as role models. .. if we protested anything it should be these ignorant ass rappers and the parents who allow their kids to support such stupidity. ..

    PROPAGANDA…. sum said the media is why George Zimmerman wldn’t get justice. Well the way this guy & the media just painted all black ppl is why there is injustice. He’s right, this conversation will lead 2 nowhere bcuz ppl like him aren’t willing 2 listen. The new racism is, pretend it doesn’t exist

    What he is saying is fact but the true is that the system has caused this things to be this way. The system is slanted, and is state up so that the black man is targeted (just like slavery) and taken away from his family so that that black family with be nonexistent. So you see all these negative stats about the black man, but don’t understand that the black man is the target of the system that we trust in. Let’s use common sense. Look at the origins of slavery. Who was the aggressor and who wasn’t. Who stole who? Who beat who? Who killed who? Who raped who? Who oppressed who? The very same things are happening today, They just aren’t done “in plain sight” like they use too. So today instead of calling us slaves, they call us criminals. How do they take our rights away from us legally now? The find ways to slap a felony charge on us so that we can know be locked out of the system. Can’t vote, can’t work, can’t get help from the system. The laws for the black man are different from the laws for the white man thanks to the war on drugs. I can go on and on. We are to take the blinders off of our eyes people. Black people aren’t evil and white aren’t good. The bible says that we are all wicked. We all need Jesus. Only God is good. We are all sinners and until we repent for the wrong that we have done we all are headed down a one way street to death and destruction. I am so happy the God has the final say! His Judgements are true! Black Man…get educated. This system is meant for our demise but it can be beat. Let’s rise above it!

    White people always want to dismiss the pass. It is relevant that slavery happened, it is relevant that racism existed and still exist in America. You cant say that if I walked down a dark road and fell off a cliff that I shouldn’t be concerned with falling off that same cliff if I walked that road again. So by O’Reilly saying that “Many black Americans harbor at least some resentment for past injury,” Should be expected. You can’t forget you got your legs blown off in the war and decide to get up in the morning and walk. The fact is if we truly held the resentment we should be holding the world of race’s would be at odds until the end of time. What happens is when you see such an injustice as in the Trayvon Martin Case it awakes that resentment no matter how far we have come. Obviously we haven’t come to far if it is still ok to stalk and kill a “Nigger”. That is exactly what happened here Zimmerman was scared enough to get out of his car and follow a “Thug” who just walked around his car with his hand in his waist band into the dark. To get an address from a street he couldn’t remember in an area which he lived for 4 years. He was so scared in fact that when Trayvon Jumped out of the bushes he didn’t run he just sat there and let him beat him to a pulp. You white folks know as well as I that that is the biggest crock of Bs ever.

      I don’t see the point in keeping the past with slavery relevant. all that accomplishes is hate and keeps the idea that we’re different alive. the point of a court is to see what laws were broken and in this case the law was more on Zimmerman’s side. and another point really is that Zimmerman isn’t even white so why is the black vs white even an issue in this?
