Bill O’Reilly – friend to Blacks

Son,

I am watching Al Sharpton on MSNBC. Talk about conflicted!

A couple of days ago Bill O’Reilly, the Fox News Pit Bull bred and trained for news media dog fights, said after visiting a Harlem restaurant, “I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it’s run by blacks, primarily black patronship,”

Al Sharpton is apparently a friend of O’Reilly. It is sort of fun to watch Sharpton defend his friend. Talk about contradictions – Sharpton is a walking contradiction.

O’Reilly seems to have that ingrained racism that doesn’t let you know you have it. Sharpton is driven by personal glory – nothing more. No thinking person should bother to listen to either of these men. These two are joined at their crack-pot hips.

  1. When I read the comments and heard the story from CNN, I thought O’Reilly was a racist. I then realized a few things. First, other news outlets weren’t reporting this “Imus moment”. Secondly, Al Sharpton press secretary said the comments were not racist, Jackson didn’t speak out against it, nor did the “liberal” NPR black commentary O’Reilly was speaking to during the interview. Then I knew something was up….. all these strong black-activists not saying ONE word against this man? How could that be?

    Then I decided to listen to the program on his website. Honestly, this was the first time I listen to the “radio factor” and I only flipped through fox-news a couple times. Now, most people have seen/heard/and dealt with racism …… but I didn’t find O’Reilly’s statements racist at all. While I don’t agree with his views about the negatives of rap music…. it is a valid viewpoint held by many people (of all skin color) and NOT racist at all. he was making analogies and demonizing stereotypes ….. he was not perpetuating them.

    I feel CNN tried to trick me. They didn’t provide proper context and I would have believed them if I didn’t notice the silence of civil-right activists.

  2. Thanks for your insight – the talking heads on MSANBC were also trying to put O’Reilly’s comment in context.
