Jackson wrote a song about police brutality and Fox News host Bill O’Reilly immediately interpreted the song as a symbol that Jackson does not appreciate what America has given him and has instead, jumped on the “grievance train.” O’Reilly says it doesn’t make sense for black successful people like Jackson to speak out against racism. “Enter President Obama, perhaps the greatest African-American success story in history.
