You know, I really don’t pay this racist blowhard much attention. He says things to get attention, not to bring forth information and truth. His tactics are that of an ignorant drunk in a bar, making comments, just to stir things up.
Bill O’Reilly apparently has no education beyond what he watches on television regarding Black people. The comments he’s made over the years have literally been laughable. As if, Black people are responsible for holding a higher moral standard than all others in this country.
He never talks about White American’s sick behavior and actions; only Black people.
The last time I checked, Black people didn’t ruin this economy, but have paid a hell of a price in the high unemployment rate among Black people.
Does he talk about that.
His most recent comments have come once again on a segment with Martin Luther King III, in which advised black Americans to wear t-shirts that say “Don’t Get Pregnant At 14” and “Don’t Abandon Your Children” during a segment with Martin Luther King Jr.’s son on Wednesday night.
And I guess the shows that were aired on MTV, 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom spin off about white teen pregnancy on cable, showing all of the dysfunction, yet, being treated as though they were just a random Aaron Spelling program, exposes the hypocrisy in White America. White girls who get pregnant are treated like Marcia Brady, but heaven help is a Black girl gets pregnant; she’s treated like a criminal.
What O’Reilly’s attitude and comments exposed truly, was the inherent bigotry in white people and ignorance they have about our culture. Apparently, O’Reilly doesn’t do much research, because if he had, he’d have known about recent statistics regarding teen pregnancy among Black teens: The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy reports that between 1990 and 2009 pregnancy rates have fallen by 51 percent for Black teens in the U.S.
“The decline has been fueled by three factors: more teens are waiting to have sex; they also report fewer sexual partners and better use of contraception,” said Sarah Brown, campaign CEO.
Since its peak in 1990, teen pregnancy has declined 52 percent among 15-17 year-olds and by 36 percent for 18-19 year-olds among all races.
Most adults are not aware of the progress teens are making.
“The credit for this remarkable national success story goes to teens themselves,” said Brown. “Unfortunately, precious few adults are aware of the good news. In fact, nearly half of Americans incorrectly believe the teen pregnancy rate in the U.S has increased over the past two decades.”
The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy is a private, non-profit organization.

As a response to my opinion of Mr. O’Reilly in general, I have no respect for him. I’d never call him a journalist, more appropriately, he’s a bitter white man, and a glaring example of someone who just couldn’t cut it with the big boys in the news business, and will never be regarded in the same light as the now retired Tom Brokaw and Dan Rather.
Basically, he’s a wannabe with an attitude!
