Quote of The Day: Bill O’Reilly

Bill O’Reilly discussing going to Sylvia’s, a soul food restaurant in Harlem:

I couldn’t get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia’s restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it’s run by blacks, primarily black patronship.

“It was like going into an Italian restaurant in an all-white suburb in the sense of people were sitting there, and they were ordering and having fun,” he said. “And there wasn’t any kind of craziness at all...”The band was excellent, but they were dressed in tuxedoes, and this is what white America doesn’t know, particularly people who don’t have a lot of interaction with black Americans,” he said. “They think the culture is dominated by Twista, Ludacris and Snoop Dogg.”

…There wasn’t one person in Sylvia’s who was screaming, “M-Fer, I want more iced tea.”

    There’s nothing wrong with twista, luda, and snoop. please note that there are approx. 30 million “M-Fers” just like him in this country alone.

    I read that earlier yesterday and I have to say…I never really understood how stupid that man is.

    In three decades I have YET to hear anyone say mutha effa I want more tea.

  • Star

    When you’re not a part of a group and have no interaction from them you make generalizations and believe stereotypes. Bill Riley is a fool. Unfortunately you have a lot of Bill Riley’s in our society. Many of us work with or for them. And how dare he think Luda and Snoop represents us all!!! Stupid ass.

  • Lili

    I am SO happy you guys posted this. I’ve been hearing about it on the cable news outlets.

    This is worse than what Adrian Curry said because, well, no one cares about her. Bill O’Reilly has the top rated cable news program– millions listen to him spew his ignorance and prejudice on a daily basis.

    What’s said is that he’s so far gone, he doesn’t even know he’s racist. He thinks he’s complimenting us. I’d be interested to hear what Al Sharpton has to say about this

  • Maya

    Bill O’Reilly is a turd. Straight up. Everything that comes out of this man’s mouth is borderline racist, but this time he didn’t bother to cover it up as much. He is up there with Imus and Limbaugh. Black people are here to stay, we aren’t going anywhere, so until he realizes THAT, then….

  • BellaH

    The problem is that people watch his show. I’m white and I boycotted his ass a long time ago in my home, but until ignorant right wing conservatives stop tuning in and giving him ratings, he’s going to keep spewing that filth. Does he not know how stupid he sounds? “MF I want some TEA?” LMAO …idk how to even begin responding to that…

  • catfish

    What can you expect from the Irish! Study your history about the relationship between the irish and blacks. Also read When the Irish Became White.

    Why is Al taking him to dinner? WTF! First Al looked the other way when those hispanic illegal aliens killed those black college students.Yet he had time for Roboho. Now he’s wining and dining with O Reilly. I think someone is double dipping. Someone is cutting deals under the table.

  • BellaH

    Is Al any better of a role model than Snoop then?

  • http://www.supersoakthathoe.com I Stay SMH

    Wonder if they spit in his food? They had to have known he was coming.

    I would atleast left a booga in it.

  • BellaH

    LMAO @ I Stay SMH

  • Nish

    Why in the world does anyone still pay this racist piece of sh** any attention? “Pass me the mfn iced tea”, who in the hell says that? He is obsessed with the black culture, and talks about it every chance that he gets. Wasn’t there some kind of kinky sex scandal that involved him last year? Let’s talk about that.


    OMG… no he didn’t! “M-Fer, I want more iced tea.”

    WTF?!? lol!

  • T

    Typical, he was hoping that the restaurant was gonna be ghetto instead he saw that it was an establishment that was well put together. He needs to keep his comments to himself, he doesn’t know what to say, how ignorant!! What? Black people don’t know how to professional, what an A**…

  • MarieDaGuru

    I’m speechless. I’ll let yall handle this one.

  • Traydayz

    Well I guess he didn’t realize that black people are just as diversified as the rest of the world. How white of you Mr O’Reilly!

  • M. DOT

    Just shows how much of a sheltered lifestyle he lives. It’s dangerous for someone like him to have such popular television show because people actually feed into and believe a lot of his conservative and sheltered viewpoints about black people. You would think that someone who claims to be so intelligent, wouldn’t base their opinions on a whole race on what he hears in music (rap) and sees on tv (rap videos). What an idiot.

  • Yes I Said It

    So the black people didn’t act like hooligans… and it was a real eye-opener for him? Am I reading this right. This man is in his 50’s and he’s surprised to see black people acting civil amongst each other? Wow.

    That’s sad on so many levels.

  • huh?

    People who think the culture is dominated by “Twista, Ludacris and Snoop Dogg” are idiots just like you, Mr. Riley.

    To be honest, it all makes since to me now. He obviously has never met, worked with, had drinks with, or enjoyed the company of blacks ever before in his life. Ever!

    What a maniacal idiot, though he’s hardly the only person who thinks like this.

  • Mo'Ree

    I so agree, the fact that he is shocked let’s you know exactly where his expectations are for us. More iced tea MFer? What a douch

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt. Lincolc said it best, but Bill personifies it better.

  • http://www.birdthecouchpotato.blogspot.com Bird

    I don’t think he said anything wrong. Please believe that some white people get their whole view of blacks from music videos whether we like it or not. Of course the reality is that most black people don’t act like rappers. Not even the rappers themselves act the way they brag they are acting.
