Being the proud racist flame thrower that he is, Fox News Bill O’Reilly did not disappoint when he tossed a grenade at Martin Luther King III by lecturing him on what African Americans need to do to uplift themselves — as if the demographic exists in a societal vacuum devoid of an oppressive system.
O’Reilly told MLK III that blacks need to don t-shirts stenciled with
“Don’t Get Pregnant At 14″ and “Don’t Abandon Your Children ” during a segment with Martin Luther King Jr.’s son on Wednesday night.
King told the host of “The O’Reilly Factor” that America needs to hear a unifying message amid recent racial turmoil. O’Reilly interjected with his suggestion for “a pathway to success ” for black people.
“Don’t abandon your children. Don’t get pregnant at 14. Don’t allow your neighborhoods to deteriorate into free-fire zones. That’s what the African American community should have on their T-shirts,” he said.
“Am I wrong?” O’Reilly inquired of MLK III.
King tried to detour the conversation toward more substantive conversation. “Well, I think that’s a part of it, but that’s not the entirety,” he said, going on to say Americans need to address more than just police misconduct.
