Bill O'Reilly's attacks on black teenage girls has been well documented here and Wednesday night he continued his assault on African American girls when he told Martin Luther King III, that if blacks want to succeed in life and help their communities they should among other things wear t-shirts that say "Don't get pregnant At 14."

O'Reilly: Here is a pathway to success. Don't abandon your children. Don't get pregnant at 14. Don't allow your neighborhoods to deteriorate into free-fire zones. That's what the African American community should have on their T-shirts. Am I wrong?

Earlier in the segment Billo acknowledged that blacks have it the toughest in the American capitalistic system, but still clinged to his belief that all African Americans have to do is work hard and all their dreams will come true. How does he know this? Because he received an email from an alleged black student that told him so. His racism is trumped only by his ignorance of how poverty works in America.

King III was a bit out of his depth debating O'Reilly, so he just glossed over Bill's uncouth suggestions about those black teenage sluts and he tried to change the subject. Bill, as usual then tried to get him so say that he hates America by asking him if he thinks America is a noble nation.

(I watched this last night, but was reminded of it in the morning by TPM)
