O'Reilly lays out the true race problems in America today and clearly exposes those like Sharpton and Jackson who are hurting, rather than helping the black community.

    @Tommym1: I apologize if the truth offends your sensitive Liberal ears. Did you even watch the video or are you going to stand there on that Liberal soap box and pretend to be a champion of Free Speech......as long as it agrees with your point of view?

    Tommy, if you don't like it, don't listen. I don't like it, I started listening and now I wish I had those few minutes back. But, there is no reason to keep opinions off this site just because you don't like/agree with them. We are better off hearing things we don't normally listen to, it helps us be more informed. But that works when you listen and don't stereotype.

        The way he's using language to manipulate his audience. When O'Reilly is paraphrasing what the President said about how people react to black men, O'Reilly says something along the lines that black men resent their treatment, which may have been years in the past. Which conjures the argument of reparations. The President did not use the word resentment, and did not bring anything up other than the way white people are reacting to black people now. Another instance is when he used the term "civil rights industry". Do we really think there are people using civil rights to line their pockets. And don't bring up Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton unless you want me to bring up Pat Robertson, televangelist of pedophile priests when you talk about Christianity. If you want to actually have a frank talk about race, great. He was using words and phrases to elicit emotions and ideas that jive with conservative, white-centric people. That's not honesty or truth. That's pandering for ratings.

          As '05tacoma' said, do you really think O'Reilly needs a ratings boost? This is a classic example of "the truth hurts". I don't really think you're going to hear a lot of people heavily associate the "reverends" Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson with Christianity. And you honestly DON'T think there is a civil rights industry that is lining the pockets of race baiting hacks like Sharpton and Jackson? Anytime they can get in the media spot light they will. They claim to be for civil rights of all Americans. Really? Remember the mess with the Duke lacrosse team? Yea, Sharpton and Jackson jumped on the opportunity to try and make a bunch of rich white kids look bad. Did the "reverends" care that they were defending a stripper who already had a past history of making stuff like that up? Nope. When a 17 year old thug who already has a criminal record attacks a neighborhood watchmen who is HALF white/Hispanic, both the race baiters and the media focus on the innocent pictures of Trayvon as a child and only reference Zimmerman's white lineage. BUT, when a group of blacks viciously attack a young white couple in TN, for some reason you don't see Sharpton and Jackson show up. They raped, tortured and burned the bodies in barrels next to the rail road tracks. Did the media cover this violation of civil rights and hate crime? Nope. O'Reilly is challenging the current tactics being used by black leaders that relies on the black individual considering him/herself a victim. It isn't working. What is more racist? Someone who tells a person that they have enough faith in them to achieve success on their own without any special treatment OR someone telling someone that they are going to give them special treatment to help them achieve success because they don't think they are capable of doing it alone. The black community needs to learn how to respect itself and take care of it's own problems.

    Take race out of it and you have the solution to many of society's ills. Problem is, even in 2013, race is an issue. It is unfortunate. Bill is dead on with why we can't and/or won't deal with it. Honest debate/discussion cannot occur when everyone, and I do mean everyone, is listening only to be offended and not to what is being communicated. That assertion of fact is directed at all races, classes, and cultures.

    I hate the argument "White people don't force black people to have children out of wedlock." It's why I grimace whenever white people try to offer solutions for black problems. "It's not OUR fault"

    Having just taken a college history course on the 1960's, it is ENTIRELY the white population's fault that there exists black ghettos and rich white suburbs. It's not hard to see the correlation between neighborhoods, poverty, and out of wedlock childbirth.

    Just my 2 cents.

      You're kidding, right? Was part of the course requirements to smoke what they did back in the 60's? Whites are at fault every time a rapper glorifies sex and gang violence in a song? Every time a black child is born out of wedlock because it's mom chose to go "twerk" in front of its daddy at a club instead of being at home studying for an exam? I don't have any control over what anyone else does with their life. Even IF, and it is an enormous IF, whites were responsible for the black situation, black parents should started telling their children 30 or 40 years ago that they can do more with their lives. They can do more than become gang-banger. They can wear a belt and buy clothes that fit instead of walking around with their back pockets at knee level.

      Ultimately, the black community is going to have to learn how to preach self responsibility and accountability and lose the victim complex. Depending on race baiters like Sharpton, Jackson and politicians that pander to them to run around blaming everyone else obviously isn't working.

      It's time for them to put their 'mint 'stache on and seize the day.

        That's not what I said. I merely said the housing situations we have in this day and age is due to racist suppression from the 1950's and 60's. Which is 100% fact. And I was also saying that it is largely the housing (and neighborhoods) that affects how most black people are raised.

        I agree that the black community has to do a lot of work themselves, but to brush this off like their problems don't at least stem from suppression that was still intact just 50 years ago is ignorant.

        We're just ONE generation away from when they weren't even treated like human beings and you expect them to have been able to recover completely? I for one don't think it would be difficult to idolize the few black men that actually became famous (even if they are rappers, and glorify things they saw in their terrible childhood neighborhoods) because they made it out of the slums. The slums that most of these young black men are growing up in. I think it would give them hope they could get out as well (even though these rappers are TERRIBLE role models).

        But to each their own, that's why they are opinions and most people don't change theirs just because of a comment on a message board. I just ask you to try some time to put yourself in their shoes, although it's impossible to even imagine. Good little debate though, engaging in intellectual debate is always good for a gentleman. I like your final quote a lot by the way, carry on Filadog.
