Harlem Slights

From the Washington Post:

NEW YORK — After eating dinner at a famed Harlem restaurant recently, Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly told a radio audience he “couldn’t get over the fact” that there was no difference between the black-run Sylvia’s and other restaurants.

“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.”

Original DVD cover.

O’Reilly pointed to the lack of difference between Sylvia’s and other restaurants as a marker of racial progress. He also noted that he went to an Anita Baker concert recently where the audience was evenly mixed between blacks and whites.

“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.”


“That’s right,” O’Reilly said. “There wasn’t one person in Sylvia’s who was screaming, `M.F.-er, I want more iced tea.”

You had better believe that if I ever saw Bill’O sitting near me in a restaurant, he would most certainly hear M.F.-er several times. It would be coming from my Caucasian mouth (and it would not be directed at the person fetching my iced tea). C’mon, you fat-headed ignorant stereotype-enforcing bloviating shithead, call Sylvia a nappy-headed ho so we can all be rid of you!

    O’Reilly is a cartoon. I hope that, “people who don’t have a lot of interaction”, with rational human beings, think that American “culture is dominated”. by bigotted gas bags. I never listen to or watch the O’Reilly show, too much craziness.

    Agreed, Fotc. I can’t stand the sight of him, he makes my flesh crawl. Al Franken had him pegged long ago. I keep waiting for the people that watch him and hang on his every word to wake up and see him for the lying, manipulative idiot that he is. I know it won’t happen, but I do keep waiting…..
