Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight the grievance industry goes off the -- all's that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
Under heavy pressure is stop demonizing America by calling it a racist society.
And start trying to solve some of the severe problems in poor African American precincts.
The far left grievance industry is getting more desperate every day.
Instead of trying to come up with solutions to the disproportionate.
Amount of violent crime.
Caused by young African American men the catastrophic high school dropout rate in the inner city and the destruction of the traditional black family.
The race hustlers and they're sympathizers have descended into the gutter.
Top -- in this tawdry display Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson.
We can indict the white family there's a lot of negativity there's a lot of dismissive this -- lot of crass materialism that refuses to care for the other we can talk about the technology at the heart of the white family.
When -- -- must be very proud he gets worse.
Speaking about the epidemic of murder committed by black killers in Chicago Illinois State representative Monique Davis said this.
I'm gonna tell you what some refer patients who didn't.
And people have whispered to needy.
The -- you -- that black people are shooting all of these children.
There's some suspicion and analysts print this but I'm just military would have been here eight.
They suspect may be the police are killing some of these -- Memo to the Chicago Police Department don't worry about it.
We -- you are risking your lives to protect the most vulnerable every day the only people who take that woman seriously are to be pitied.
And then there's the New Haven register newspaper which editorializing on Monday about a new Ku Klux Klan intrusion in the state of Connecticut quote.
The same basic message that the kkk has promoted for a 148 years is embraced by the likes of Ted Nugent.
Fox News and Coulter.
Our burgeoning array of fringe conservative media and members of our own community.
We shouldn't need a label as obvious as KKK.
To call out and condemn the hatred and racism.
Institutions who are helping main stream this message.
Even if that's Fox News.
Deserved to be called out and if ultimately necessary marginalize and ostracized.
For enabling it on quote.
The editor of the New Haven register is Matt do friends GO.
The publisher -- Wylie the papers -- by a hedge fund if you can believe that the bosses and Randall Smith.
We asked those men to discuss that irresponsible editorial.
They all declined because they are cowards.
And they know they cannot defend that vial libelous piece of garbage.
The New Haven register should be ashamed.
The paper has lost all credibility and it had better apologize.
In writing by the end of the week I'm not gonna let this go.
The anger generated by a simple call a simple call.
For problem solving in troubled American communities.
Clearly demonstrates that the -- industry has no interest.
In actually improving conditions for mostly poor black Americans.
What they want to do is one simple thing.
Condemn America while the communities they claim to care for self destruct.
And that's not out of the top story tonight reaction joining us from Washington Hilary Shelton the senior vice president for advocacy for the NAACP.
To -- -- gone wrong here.
Well first bill I want to thank you for taking on such a challenging issues that issue races one that is too often dismissed in our society.
We need to have a good comprehensive and insightful and informed conversation about issues of race as well it's been a problem -- our country from -- very beginning as a problem now.
It's was good to have these kind of conversations and not dismiss those prospectus that maybe just a little bit different than our own.
All right but surely.
You know the core of this is in Americans.
It's an industry.
Our rate of race hustlers my description.
Who I don't believe want to solve the problem and I all I always go back to the fundamental core.
Why there is violence among African American young man why there is a high dropout rate.
Why there is a myriad of social problems in.
The most devastated American communities and that is mr.
Of the family.
Now do you agree with me on that do you agree with me on that.
I agree with -- that we -- issues you are concerned here that has to be discussed not just in concerns of the violence itself.
What perpetuates the violence that that is that -- dissidents in order -- reason.
The core -- Is that the traditional.
Mostly among blacks 73%.
Think it's 52% for Hispanics 29% for whites has fallen apart.
That drives poverty.
Young men are unsupervised.
Single moms are struggling it all comes back to the family unit I believe do you agree with me there.
Well -- I believe that the conditions that create the real circumstances for families throughout the country.
Really are the core of the problem you can't start -- two ways to the problem one of the issues says she talked about those speakers earlier.
Well there's a Michael Eric Dyson in our weather is is the -- the the register newspaper others.
Is it doubles issues being discussed -- a very helpful perspective.
If you're going to have a very universal assessment -- entirely I think those people even -- -- they are wherever it but let me just get your position where I disagree because those people are haters.
They hate on us.
They hate me for even bringing it up you're a -- -- and and and you or someone who I believe sincerely wants to help.
Poor people not just poor black people but more people in general.
And I suspect that you're not -- you're not throwing stuff out there caving and I'm I'm I'm not gonna stand -- and Willis.
Let's let's -- tablet the -- an agreement to disagree on the assessment of of what these people are and just say that this is a big issue a huge problem.
We need a comprehensive response to it which -- when -- -- very different perspectives sometimes painfully different perspectives.
But nonetheless we want to have more opportunities like this -- with you.
In which we can look at these issues not dismiss those that may have an opinion this is a little hurtful but let's dig a little deeper.
Let's find out exactly was going on I -- -- I have had a small portions of the problems health and -- I have I have studied this issue for thirty years and my sincere belief.
Is it that the African American community it is being devastated.
By the collapse of the family.
That's you -- that short pour that drives hypocrisy drive violence to drive -- -- it drives everything.
And the new guy is just is not challenging it you're not acknowledging it hit it.
What hit his that we -- not stopping there.
In order -- solve -- our own hole you have to embrace exactly and the course not the fan.
What all -- -- created the circumstances.
Do you believe that African American families would like to be unemployed do you believe that every African American what I would not like to make a good living here's -- I -- an African American -- to life to live in good -- and communities.
They're they're not create in the circumstances which they live in a position to survive one -- those are missing your shelf it.
If we want to solve the problem you know years ago when got to dig deeper into the problem itself to craft some solutions you're wrong about -- where you're hearing me and says if he said with portions of it.
You won't get the whole problem you lost and the whole problem.
You can't have a -- universal and confidence is never.
And President Obama is never going to improve the situation and tool you acknowledge that fifty years ago when African Americans were enough.
Far more dire circumstance in this country than they are now.
The out of wedlock birth rate was 25%.
In -- 1930s it was 13%.
OK now it's seven.
That it is a catastrophe.
And income inequality -- violence it all stems from that.
And you've got well I thought I would I would I would disagree with we've we've we've had many single family headed households that issues -- condition was -- having to raise their children.
They can be successful if indeed -- society decides we want to solve the problem is not cookie cutter is not a one size does -- We have to continue having this kind of conversations and really work towards some real solutions that will be long -- guards Shelvin thank you very much for appearing we really appreciate it.
