Mr. O'Reilly goes to Harlem...

He makes the shocking revelation that black people... can eat dinner just like... (Gasp!) white people.
And if that wasn't enough:
"There wasn't one person in Sylvia's(The Restaurant) who was screaming,
'M-Fer, I want more iced tea.'"

Like Don Imus, it shouldn't surprise people that Bill "Don't steal my hubcaps" O'Reilly said something racist and stupid, but I guess it's better that the media pays attention to this type of stuff several years late rather than not at all.

Update: I was talking to my dad about this earlier and I think he had the best take on it. He joked that could have been seen as a breakthrough in race relations in the 1920s and I think that goes a long way in explaining O'Reilly's world view.


  1. FIRST POST IN WEBSITE HISTORY!!! i'll take it... as for O'Reilly, he really is an idiot and everyone already knows that. of course he offends, even in this case where i really think he thought of it as a compliment. it just goes to show how warped and out of touch w/ reality he is

  2. What makes O'Reilly's comments worse is that he gets paid to be racist. Fox News just brushes his comments off as simple "gaffes" and errors in judgment, rather than fundamental flaws in his thinking and ideology. It's unfortunate that people defend this man and people like him, it just gives him more influence to spit his version of hate and bigotry.

  3. Thanks guys for your comments, I hope to see you guys around here often!
