Bill O’Reilly is a race hustler

Racist Bill O’Reilly of Fox News smears anyone speaking out against racism in America as a “race hustler” and a “thug”. Charles M. Blow has written a brilliant piece in New York Times saying that the real race hustler is Bill O’Reilly himself.

No, Mr. O’Reilly, it is statements like this one that make you the race hustler. The underlying logic is that blacks are possessed of some form of racial pathology or self-destructive racial impulses, that personal responsibility and systemic inequity are separate issues and not intersecting ones.
