I’m not the biggest fan of Bill O’Reilly but when it comes to protecting children, he always gets it right and he was spot-on last night when he put the conversation on race into high gear. He plays snippets of Obama’s remarks about Trayvon Martin and then responds. O’Reilly calls on the Congressional Black Caucus, the chief American race-baiters in sync with the New Black Panther Party, to stand up and do something right. Partial transcript below:
The culture we have in this country does lead to profiling because young black American men are so often involved in crime. The statistics, overwhelming. Here’s the headline:
Young black men commit homicide at a rate ten times greater than whites and Hispanics combined. When presented by damning evidence like that, and like the many holocausts in Chicago where hundreds of African Americans are murdered each year, the 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.
The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the decinteration of the African American family. Right now, about 73 percent 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 ad telling young black girls to avoid becoming pregnant? Has president 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 has led to disaster both socially and economically.
Raised without much structure, young black men often reject education and gravitate to street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs.
Nobody forces them to do that. 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, President 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.
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. They will tell you narcotics. They know addiction leads to crime and debasement, but what are the race hustlers and limousine liberals yell about? The number of blacks in prison for selling drugs.
Oh, it’s so unfair. It’s a non-violate 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 a long 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 President Obama?
The solution to 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 and imposing harsh mandatory prison time on offenders, and finally, challenging the entertainment industry to stop peddling garbage.
Hey, listen up you greed-heads, 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, 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 are the ones hurting these vulnerable children.
You want a conversation? You got it. You want a better situation for blacks? Give them a chance to revive their neighborhoods and culture. Work with the good people to stop the bad people. Pumping money into the chaos does little. You can’t legislate good parenting or responsible entertainment, but you can fight against the madness with discipline, a firm message and little tolerance for excuse making.
It is now time for the African American leadership, including President Obama, to stop the nonsense. Walk away from the world of victimization and grievance, and lead the way out of this mess.
