Last night and is talking points memo Bill O'Reilly took on President Obama and a civil rights establishment on their lack of leadership when it comes to dealing with the most pressing problems -- -- -- African.
American community take a -- The sad truth is that from the president on down our leadership has no clue no clue at all.
About how to solve problems within the black community young black men commit homicides.
At a rate.
Ten times greater.
Than whites and Hispanics combine.
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 all born out of wedlock.
That drives poverty.
And the lack of involved fathers.
Leads to young boys growing up resentful.
And -- supervised.
The solution to the epidemic a violent crime and poor black neighborhoods is to actively discourage pregnancies at a match.
To impose strict discipline in the public schools including mandatory student uniforms.
And to create -- zero tolerance policy for -- and drug crimes imposing harsh mandatory prison time on the offenders.
-- and that's Bill -- last night talking points memo I was out last night and it will while he was on at 8 PM I started getting lots of emails from people say wow.
I never really comment on O'Reilly is talking points memo but it really struck people and then this morning what I sent a note on -- producers they said they'd never had.
As much response to -- talking points -- as they did last night.
What did you think -- I have to tell you they'll test subject and you'll never catch him if he does that every night.
Classic he was so spot on he was so passionate he was right he really brought it -- he brought it.
Perfectly you know he really said it where was and he.
Take a little bit -- -- He blamed the plight of the African can be blamed their homicide rates on two things he blamed on the hip hop community Hollywood flash and parenting I'll go with the parenting.
I get that -- I understand that but as far as the Hollywood the pop community.
Not really sure that has a lot to do because don't forget.
There -- a lot of white kids -- fourteen year old white kids in Livingston New Jersey who look up to that about.
Let's play that this may have a -- on seventeen seconds and I wanna get your take on because I actually liked this part of the talking points them.
-- The entertainment industry -- you -- your responsibility.
By marketing a -- subculture.
Hip hop movies trashy TV shows to impressionable children.
These so called entertainers get rich while the kids who emulate their lyrics and attitude.
Right and you are a student of the entertainment industry about their -- I have to say.
Do you think it's hard to listen to Bill O'Reilly talk about that music because I think the music is great.
But I understand.
We live at a time when we have the greatest we have -- -- to the greatest country that -- was and we have pockets of society that reject its greatness.
And why -- they reject it's great it's great news is because.
They are being -- being pushed a persona of criminality.
That is romanticized.
So it is so O Reilly is right.
You you can reject establishment ways of achievement as being white.
Rubio why study that's white -- do these things it's -- this is the way to go out.
However it does get to space it does get you noticed it does get you some money but you get old there's nothing more pathetic -- an old gangster no matter what you -- whether you're a mafia or -- in -- in the -- it doesn't matter.
That's the problem this this is just a new version of the mafia in my mind and it's gonna run out for all of these guys and in a rally -- it's just so.
He's not the one.
That there are gonna listen to he just looks like it got its front -- She kind of like a US saying it was that leaders in the African Americans have to do is settle right right -- it should be saying that they that he's right but -- the -- -- young.
You gotta be people that are -- -- didn't -- all -- he's not gonna do it got started in the Lupe Fiasco is that we see it and -- -- -- yeah music anybody but Andrea do you think -- -- Riley painted too broad a brush.
When it came to his comments.
I actually think she was right on with a lot and -- I don't agree with everything that.
I do think -- the lack of fathers is a big deal not just for young African American men but also women the importance of girls.
And their relationships with their fathers if they don't have a father around -- healthy relationship it affects every relationship they have with men I think which makes everything cyclical.
I also think that the difference too is in the absence of a father.
These young black -- and -- gangs because they get the loyalty they get the Stanley sense that they don't have at home the difference maybe.
With white kids now look if you don't have a father -- -- white you're probably gonna have issues as well I'm not I'm not saying this is.
Just the African American community but the difference is.
The -- seem to only have.
The rap music and I would encourage the way bill did.
Some of these African American athletes and others to stand up these good -- to stand up and say.
Listen to listen to this music here's the example but I think they're afraid -- honestly I think they're scared they're gonna get attacked the way Bill Cosby did.
And it's -- it's a real real shame because the exact message they would help the black community is the one that would hurt the politicians.
What saved you for our last year because I want it there's a lot of passion there that -- from Bill O'Reilly you've got that on a show quite a bit you've seen that do you think that when he.
Speak is he speaking to most of America or half of America -- is a small percentage America with a message like that.
I think -- -- reflected with a lot of non African Americans think about what what he said was so that they would -- themselves.
A lot let me just say.
Jesse Jackson deserves some credit when he heat for many years he's talked about babies having babies and any kind of like me do that.
But I again -- right I think they're afraid to win there and do that.
And at the heart of all this at the heart of it in over -- touch -- didn't -- -- of his drugs.
Drugs rip apart families drug to the region that they do have gangs drugs in the -- people get shot.
Drugs and the reason for the most part whether father this -- and I.
-- say that actually talks about the -- narcotics and let independent and that and that -- is our supply and demand issue here Erica now on the drug -- for for me it it seemed like you did the -- talking points memo was set up for the final comment which was take.
It's time president bomb Al Sharpton Jesse Jackson the other.
African Americans according quote.
Leaders to lead the way lead the way out of this to quit blaming.
You know slavery for decades ago it's still lead the way out of -- in the only way to do that is.
You say is that them.
-- it good if Clinton of the fathers and academic think -- program by the way in the but it slightly to 73%.
-- babies born out of wedlock that's -- and growing for Hispanics and whites.
I mean at that we have a national problem but maybe it's accessible but why does present Obama decides to go the other way it would divide well -- -- I think about -- thing is I'll do that that other things in the news cycle get in the way so.
He the president a -- I think it was Father's Day this past in in June.
He did give a speech and it was.
Very I was very well done and he got a little bit -- coverage far but not a lot.
So I think the summit -- -- -- using his platform to deliver that message last night with Larry this.
Two teens -- residents say quickly -- it is it it's not newsworthy that some problems usually follow that kind of story and secondly.
What are the fact they gonna do about it I mean I'm not so sure it fixes things if you usually.
Perfect person to do it.
His father left him when he was two years -- he said this study and he pulls his pants up any -- speaks proper English Barack Obama is an excellent example he's an excellent father.
But if he keeps everyone united.
And they may get on the -- celebrity scandal even democratic Smart you got argued that he was very passionate about it and talked about -- I didn't do last regret.
Yet that -- -- there are two issues going on that are hitting like this and Shelby Steele.
Calls one called the prospect of a black -- Which scares people from actually speaking what is called a hate fact which is what O'Reilly did he spoke -- facts these are facts that are true that people eight.
The other side is fear.
Being called a racist therefore when you spew these when you say these -- that you called a racist.
And you have the fear black -- these things together have created apparel.
A paralysis in the black community and it's only to take young black leaders to break it.
