Bill O’Reilly is continuing to whitesplain his mean-spirited “solutions” for African Americans which somehow always amount to a scolding attack. O’Reilly has a long list of complaints about blacks, it seems. He blames them for Trayvon Martin’s killing, suggests they overreact to racial profiling, castigates them for admiring the wrong civil rights leaders, for having too many children out of wedlock and now – denigrating them for not having a higher rate of employment. Oh, and for extra Fox News points, O'Reilly tied it into President Obama and his speech the day before about the economy and income inequality.
After blaming President Obama for the “anemic” economic growth, O’Reilly let loose on his new favorite targets:
Even if there were plenty of jobs, most employers are not going to hire people who can’t read well and speak proper English. Right now, the unemployment rate among black males, ages 16-19 - 57%! 57%! It’s 25% for white males that age. Overall, black unemployment - 14%. White unemployment – 6.6. The reason? In many poor neighborhoods, there’s chaos, violence and little discipline in the public schools. Kids aren’t learning. Also, with the African American out-of-wedlock birth rate at 73%, many young blacks are unsupervised and prone to imitate bad behavior.
Don’t forget, this is coming from the guy who reportedly pulled strings to have his local police investigate the detective he thought was his wife’s paramour, who quickly settled a sexual harassment suit against him, probably spending millions to do so, and who exhibited something a lot of us would call “bad behavior” on the air when he screamed, “We’ll do it live, f*** it!” I’ll include the video for that little segment underneath the Talking Points, for your reference. But O’Reilly earns a lot of money for his hate mongering so maybe that doesn’t count in his mind. Plus, of course, he’s white.
So I hate to say this, Bill, but some of that bad behavior those kids might be imitating could very well be your own.
As POTUS Obama is a bad role model for blacks!!!! Now most blacks think they can make something out of their lives beyond being stalked and killed!!! I mean REALLY!!!!!! That kinda thinking is just all wrong!!!!!
