O'Reilly: "I Think Black Americans Are Starting To Think More For Themselves"
Made popular 2092 days ago in
During the September 19 edition of his nationally syndicated radio program, discussing his recent trip to have dinner with Rev. Al Sharpton at Sylvia's, a famous restaurant in Harlem, Bill O'Reilly reported that he "had a great time, and all the people up there are tremendously respectful," adding: "I couldn't get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia's restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it's run by blacks, primarily black patronship." Later, during a discussion with National Public Radio senior correspondent and Fox News contributor Juan Williams about the effect of rap on culture, O'Reilly asserted: "There wasn't one person in Sylvia's who was screaming, 'M-Fer, I want more iced tea.' You know, I mean, everybody was - it was like going into an Italian restaurant in an all-white suburb in the sense of people were sitting there, and they were ordering and having fun. And there wasn't any kind of craziness at all." O'Reilly also stated: "I think black Americans are starting to think more and more for themselves. They're getting away from the Sharptons and the [Rev. Jesse] Jacksons and the people trying to lead them into a race-based culture. They're just trying to figure it out. 'Look, I can make it. If I work hard and get educated, I can make it."

Do you believe Fox news should fire Bill O'Reilly for such comments?
This is not a scientific survey,

i think bill o'reilly should be fired for being a hypocrite. he was against any type of war under the clinton administration, the same for sean hannity. they both were anti war during the clinton administration. They have changed their views under a Republican administration. they follow blindly into war and openly support war now. i think this is hypocritical and bad for television. we dont need political puppets telling people whats goin on in the world through their distorted views!
