On Monday’s edition of The O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly criticizes President Barack Obama for not telling Howard University graduates the real reason behind Black poverty and mass incarceration.
After Obama’s last commencement speech this past Saturday, he has come under attack from conservative political opponents for telling graduates to be “confident in their Blackness.” Many conservatives believe his comments were divisive and even racist toward whites. This is an excerpt of what O’Reilly had to say about the speech:
“The cold truth is there has been a failure to lead on culture and family issues, and that has led to bad behavior being excused, sometimes even accepted. American society has grown so permissive and politically correct that solving poverty is almost impossible. Anyone who raises questions about so-called entertainment that instructs children to reject civil behavior is immediately attacked in vile ways on the net. Anyone lamenting the African-American out-of-wedlock birthrate risks being branded a racist.”
