Bill O'Reilly: I Don't Report On Race Because People Will Call Me Racist

Bill O'Reilly says that he and "other white journalists" shy away from commenting on black issues because no matter what they say, their words are twisted to make them look racist. O'Reilly references his infamous accounting at having eaten at the legendary Sylvia's in Harlem, after which he marveled that folks were actually well-dressed and well-behaved. He said at the time, "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. There wasn't one person in Sylvia's who was screaming, 'M-Fer, I want more iced tea.'" Yeah, his words were twisted.
