Before racial tensions and riots erupted in Ferguson, MO after Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly delivered an impassioned, no-holds-barred commentary on America's race problems.
O'Reilly lays the blame squarely on the shoulders of "race hustlers," Hollywood "Greedheads," "derelict parents," "limousine liberals," and the "disintegration of the African-American family."
See the video and full transcript of O'Reilly's July 23, 2013 discourse below.
The culture that we have in this country does lead to criminal profiling, because young black American men are so often involved in crime. The statistic's overwhelming. But, here's the headline:
Young black men commit homicides at a rate ten times greater than whites and Hispanics combined. Presented with damning evidence like that, and like the many holocausts in Chicago where hundreds of American Americans are murdered each year, civil rights industry looks the other way or makes excuses. They blame guns, poor education, lack of jobs - rarely, do they define the problem accurately. So, here it is:
The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African-American family.
Right now, about 73% of all black babies are born out of wedlock. That drives poverty. And, the lack of involved fathers leads to young boys growing up resentful and unsupervised.
When was the last time you saw a public service ad telling young black girls to avoid becoming pregnant? Has Pres. Obama done such an ad? How about Jackson or Sharpton? Has the Congressional Black Caucus demanded an ad like that? How about the PC pundits who work for NBC News?
White people don't force black people to have babies out of wedlock. That's a personal decision. A decision that has devastated millions of children and led to disaster, both socially and economically. So, raised without much structure, young black men often reject education, gravitate towards the street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs. Nobody forces them to do that. Again, it is a personal decision.
But, the entertainment industry encourages the irresponsibility by marketing a gangsta culture: hip-hop, movies, trashy TV shows, to impressionable children. In fact, Pres. Obama has welcomed some of the worst offenders in that cesspool to the White House, when he should be condemning what these weasels are doing. These so-called entertainers get rich, while the kids who emulate their lyrics and attitude destroy themselves.
And, then, there's the drug situation. Go to Detroit and ask anyone living on the south side of the Eight Mile Road what destroyed their city and they will tell you "narcotics." They know addiction leads to crime and debasement.
But, what do the race hustlers and limousine liberals yell about? The number of black men in prison for selling drugs: "Oh, it's so unfair! It's a non-violent crime, and blacks are targeted!"
That is one of the biggest lies in the history of this country. The thugs who sell hard drugs, no matter what color they are, deserve to be put away for long periods of time. They sell poison. They sell a product that enslaves and kills. They are scum.
When was the last time you heard the Congressional Black Caucus say that? How about Jackson and Sharpton? How about Pres. Obama?
The solution to the epidemic of violent crime in poor black neighborhoods is to actively discourage pregnancies out of marriage, to impose strict discipline in the public schools - including mandatory student uniforms - and to create a zero tolerance policy for gun and drug crimes, imposing harsh mandatory prison time on the offenders. And, finally, challenging the entertainment industry to stop peddling garbage.
Hey, listen up you Greedheads: if a kid can't speak proper English, uses the "F" word in every sentence, is disrespectful in his or her manner, that child will never be able to compete in the marketplace of America. Never. And, it has nothing to do with slavery. It has everything to do with you Hollywood people and you derelict parents. You're the ones hurting these vulnerable children.
