Fox News talking head and resident angry white male Bill O’Reilly had a conversation with his man crush and Republican Presidential Candidate and one of America’s richest dicks Donald Trump. As they were talking, Trump was asked how he would win over black voters:
“I’m telling you, it’s an economic message,” Trump said. “If you look at President Obama, he’s been a president for almost 8 years, it will be 8 years, you have with black youth, with African American youth, you have a 59 percent unemployment.”
Get ready, because here’s where O’Reilly demonstrates how well he knows about African Americans:
“How are you going to get jobs for them?” O’Reilly asked. “Many of them are ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads, and I hate to be generalized about it but it’s true. If you look at all the educational statistics, how are you going to give jobs to people who aren’t qualified for jobs?”
Wow! I’m just gonna leave it right here because this is more stupid than I can take.
Ole’ Bill hasn’t been known as the sharpest thinker, even by right-wing standards. And he certainly hasn’t been known as the most open-minded. This interview is just another typical addition of O’Reilly’s ignorance regarding black Americans out in full display. And there has been plenty.
Several years ago, O’Reilly discussed having dinner with activist Al Sharpton in Harlem. He expressed amazement to see how civilized black people were acting. A few years later, he mentioned how Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, a professor at Columbia University looked like a drug dealer. And he believes that black men commit ten times more murders than whites and Hispanics combined.
And that is just a tip of the killer iceberg that is Bill O’Reilly’s mind out to sink the ships of logic and morality.
One has to wonder. Where the hell is Bill getting his information about black people from, because it’s obvious that his contact with black people is limited in the real world. Does he watch TV shows like Love and Hip Hop, the Real Housewives of Atlanta and The First 48 and think, “A-ha! So, that’s how black people are!” Does he do what any narrow-minded, angry white male does and frequent right wing and hate sites and soak in all the white supremacist propaganda? Or was it taught to him by racist relatives who despite having an abundance of white privilege is still mad as hell at the world?
Maybe it’s all three.
But Bill will never admit his racism or anyone else’s. After all, he doesn’t know any racists. He has a black female assistant.
