Bill O’Reilly: Majority of Violent Crime Perpetuated by Young Black Men

‘Overwhelmingly, violent crime in this country is generated by young black men’

O’Reilly To African-American Minister: Violent Crime In U.S. ‘Overwhelmingly’ ‘Generated By Young Black Men’ (Mediaite)

Last night Bill O’Reilly spoke to actor LeVar Burton about how it feels to be driving a car and dealing with cops as a black man in America. O’Reilly continued the race discussion tonight with Reverend Jacques DeGraff, arguing that the reason more young black men are in prison and are approached with more caution by police is because that is a demographic that is committing a significant amount of crime in the United States. He said, “Overwhelmingly, violent crime in this country is generated by young black men.”

DeGraff said part of it is geography and areas that have higher crime rates than others, so “it’s not in the DNA.” O’Reilly countered by citing a statistic showing 91 percent of all black people murdered in 2011 were killed by other African-Americans. O’Reilly said, “That cuts across every geographical boundary!”
