NYT Writer Calls Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly a Race Hustler

Bill O’Reilly often accuses people like Rev. Al Sharpton of being race hustlers, but the Fox Charles BlowNews host engages in a bit of race hustling of his own, and New York Times columnist Charles Blow wasn’t afraid to admit as much.

First Blow noted how O’Reilly contradicts himself when discussing the issue of white privilege. To that point, he quoted O’Reilly:

“Last night on ‘The Factor,’ Megyn Kelly and I debated the concept of white privilege whereby some believe that if you are Caucasian you have inherent advantages in America,” O’Reilly said. “‘Talking Points’ does not, does not believe in white privilege. However, there is no question that African-Americans have a much harder time succeeding in our society than whites do.”

O’Reilly obviously didn’t understand that blacks are having a harder time because whites have an advantage called white privilege.

Blow noted how O’Reilly’s comments don’t make any sense.

“It is difficult to believe that those three sentences came in that order from the same mouth,” Blow writes. You can’t say that it’s “harder for blacks to succeed,” then refuse to admit that there is  “a form of privilege.”

Blow used this to drive home the point that O’Reilly is a race hustler because all the Fox News host aims to do is pathologize blackness.

“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,” Blow explained.

Blow concluded by saying only a man “bathing” in white privilege would make comments like those coming from O’Reilly.
