All In With Chris Hayes Discusses Bill O’Reilly’s ‘Super Racist Rant’ (Video)

After Bill O’Reilly delivered a hate filled rant on O’Reilly Factor Monday night about President Obama, Chris Hayes responded with some much needed facts on All In Tuesday.

In the clips Hayes played O’Reilly threw out his version of statistics and they ended with O’Reilly’s boast of “You want a conversation? You got it.”

“He, Bill O’Reilly, only wants to create a better situation for blacks,” Hayes interjected. “According to him, it’s liberals, people like you and me, who are ignoring the problems facing African-Americans.”

He then continued with a clip of O’Reilly mocking those who say the criminal justice system is unfair because of the disproportionate incarceration of black men for “selling drugs.”

Hayes responded with statistics demonstrating the racial bias that O’Reilly mocked, and promised that “everything he’s saying is easily debunked with about 20 minutes of googling.”

“That’s not really the point,” he continued. “The real reason Bill O’Reilly peddles this stuff is because it gives a cheap cracklike high to the old fearful white audience that watches Bill O’Reilly, and gives Fox News its power, also known as the Republican base. These are the folks Bill O’Reilly is feeding when he laments not being able to criticize black culture.”

“That’s because race hustlers and the grievance industry have intimidated the so-called conversation,,” a clip of O’Reilly played, “turning any valid criticism of African-American culture into charges of racial bias.”

Hayes then accused O’Reilly of having a limited view of black culture, recounting O’Reilly’s 2007 account of a dinner with Al Sharpton at Harlem’s Sylvia’s restaurant. “”There wasn’t one person in Sylvia’s who was screaming, ‘M-Fer, I want more iced tea,’” O’Reilly said at the time. “You know, I mean, everybody was — 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. And there wasn’t any kind of craziness at all.”

Hayes ended the segment saying, “If Bill O’Reilly is representative of white culture, with his stereotyping and his victim-blaming and domineering tone, then I’m pretty sure we need to start having a national conversation about the problems with white culture.”
