Bill O’Reilly Says U.S. Crime High Because of ‘Young Black Men’

D.L. Chandler, NewsOne, July 11, 2013

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is no stranger to offending a wide swath of people during his program, “The O’Reilly Factor.” And this time, his latest insult occurred while he was having a conversation with Reverend Jacques DeGraff, claiming that crime in the United States is at high numbers because of young African-American men.

{snip} Continuing his “Race & Crime In America” segment, the host posted the question to Rev. DeGraff if he was wrong in stating, “[o]verwhelmingly, violent crime in this country is generated by young Black men.”

Rev. DeGraff responded that the numbers show that the numbers are about geography and where these young men reside. O’Reilly hit back with a statistic from 2011 that said 91 percent of all Blacks murdered that year were killed by their own people. {snip}

O’Reilly, to his credit, supported Rev. DeGraff’s exasperation at the lack of coverage by major and minor news outlets on the crime epidemic happening in cities like Chicago, New York, and other major hubs of activity.

After some tense banter over the socioeconomic factors at play with crime and Black Americans, O’Reilly shifted his attention to the George Zimmerman trial.

The host suggested that because the Zimmerman case has dominated the news cycle, it is prompting liberal media and outlets to push the issue of Black-on-Black crime to the wayside. O’Reilly once again injected his opinion that Zimmerman will be acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin, and that Blacks will immediately riot in response.

    Anyone who isn’t a “true believer” in liberalism has realized this fact with little little intuition needed.

    • Oil Can Harry

      O’Reilly is wrong to blame all US crime on young black men.

      He’s forgetting about middle-aged black men and Da Sistas.

      • Tom_in_Miami

        He’s also leaving out the blacks who were killed by whites during home invasions and attacks by the blacks on armed whites.

  • The__Bobster

    Rev. DeGraff responded that the numbers show that the numbers are about geography and where these young men reside.

    Yes, the more of these “young men” that you have in a given area, the higher the crime rate.

    • IanJMacDonald

      Yes, it’s geography, there’s just something about those inner-city areas clustered around Martin Luther King Blvd that somehow generates high crime.

  • The__Bobster

    The host suggested that because the Zimmerman case has dominated the news cycle, it is prompting liberal media and outlets to push the issue of Black-on-Black crime to the wayside.

    I really don’t give a tinker’s dam about that type of crime. I care about the eggplant-on-White rate, since more Whites are victims of Bantu crime.

    • AutomaticSlim

      Yes, they will choose a White victim 100% of the time — when they have access to one.

  • NotYourTypicalBlack

    He *claims* that the high crime rate is because of young black men? Either it is or it isn’t. And what about the number of non-blacks killed by young black men?

  • claiming that crime in the United States is at high numbers because of young African-American men.

    Didn’t JT prove in his “Color of Crime” series that the highest regression coefficient to explain the violent crime rate of a jurisdiction was the percent of its population that consists of young black men within a certain age range?

    I dare anyone who writes for NewsNone for Bell Curve America to know what a “regression coefficient” is without having to look it up on the online encyclopedia of questionable credibility.

    – D.L. Chandler, NewsOne, July 11, 2013

    What about whites murdered by blacks? That is what bothers me.

    • AutomaticSlim

      Both O’Reilly and Hannity are terrified of mentioning things like that.

    • Creepy as a cracker!

      And how about the White on black murder rate or shall I say the lack there of?

      • Sick of it

        They do tend to make a big deal out of the rare exception and ignore the rule.

    • Romulus

      The network must do a balancing act of reporting news fairly with a right hand slant while simultaneously trying to corral support for the right amongst the other two large voting blocs in America.

    • IanJMacDonald

      Yep, typical faux conservative, fake opposition, pulling his punches. O’Reilly, Hannity, and Rush are sheep in wolf’s clothing.
      He should have said mentioned that 55% of the homicides, 35% of the rapes, and 65% of the armed robberies are committed by black men between the ages 14 and 44. That’s only three percent of the population whence comes the tidal wave of crime.

      • Creepy as a cracker!

        Exactly, I was banned from another site for pointing out the same thing. I was called a racist and a liar and received a lifetime ban. It was a typical lib-tard site that was not interested in hearing the truth.

  • Spartacus

    “And this time, his latest insult occurred while he was having a
    conversation with Reverend Jacques DeGraff, claiming that crime in the
    United States is at high numbers because of young African-American men.”


    “Insult” means you say something that isn’t true. What wasn’t true here ?

    • [Guest]

      Nowadays the truth is both insulting and racist. It’s uncivil and it’s hate speech.

  • “…they don’t report this crime because the media do not think it is important enough” –


    What a typically black viewpoint. It never seems to occur to them that the media do not open up these issues because of the truths it would expose about Blacks and the failure of their {liberal} social engineering experiments.

    Crime spree’s? No. Being cast as heroic brain surgeons, scientists, engineers and so on – sure. That is the narrative, and they are going to be sticking to it.

    • Creepy as a cracker!

      Back in the 80’s, they tried to pass the fictitious Huxtable family off as your average black American family. Wishful thinking!

  • JohnEngelman

    For decades conventional conservatives have been too cowardly to discuss the fact that blacks have a much higher crime rate than whites. I hope bill O’Reilly’s candor means that things are changing.

  • [Guest]

    It’s a sad state of affairs when we have to rely on the likes of Bill O’Reilly to speak these kinds of truths.

  • MekongDelta69

    I gave up on O’Giant Head years ago. He swings back and forth like a pendulum, with whatever is topically popular. He cares about ratings and endlessly pushing his 2 Trillion books (not to mention the $20-25+ Million/year he gets).

    • bigone4u

      Ghostwritten books, no less. But at least he allows his ghostwriter’s name on the cover too. So, Bill, while a self-promoter has a tiny bit of decency in him.

      • Usually, “authors” who have a ghostwriter credit the ghostwriter in the opening credits as someone who gave them “indispensable help” or something weird.

        • bigone4u

          Right. I suspect Ann Coulter has a lot of “help” in writing her books.

  • Baboon

    It’s never their fault. It’s da raycisss white devil and weez dontz beez handing outz freez moneeyz to dem. dey dazerve freez money for whatz deyz peeplez went thruz 200 yeerz agoz

  • bigone4u

    In spite of the hype, O’Reilly’s audience is only 3 million or so, about 1 percent of the population. MSNBC’s audience is less than a third of Fox’s. The nightly network news is still the main news source for most people and the despicable Brian Williams and his counterparts on ABC and CBS will NEVER tell the truth about black crime.

  • Luca

    “O’Reilly hit back with a statistic from 2011 that said 91 percent of all Blacks murdered that year were killed by their own people.” …

    I’m guessing the other 9% were killed by hispanics and/or cops.

  • Spartacus

    BTW, anybody in the MSM started caring about the Afrikaaner yet ? No ? Nobody ?

    • Sick of it

      We truly should feel for the Afrikaaner who, like us, strove to be free men during the entirety of their existence. Who, also like us, lived on the frontiers in a new continent for their people. Decent, hard working, God fearing people like them should not be so universally despised.

    • David Ashton

      Not so. Several contributors have spoken up for this good people.

      • Spartacus

        I was referring to the mainstream media. Or is that what you meant ?

        • David Ashton

          I meant people on this and similar websites, but the fate of poor whites and injured farm owners is seeping, though all too briefly and sporadically into the mainstream.

          • Spartacus

            That only took you… 22 days to write 🙂

          • David Ashton

            Sorry, I only just found it at 11.30 PM GMT August 3 when checking back through previous entries. I agree about the scale of carnage and its under-reporting, though the unlikely figure of John Simpson did a recent TV program on it. I was an active member of the pro-apartheid South Africa Society in Britain until the Mandela regime arrived, and also took part in street protests against the Sanctions demos. I have just recorded my experience of TV media distortion on AmRen.

            Maybe I am not doing enough today in my latter years with cancer, among a host of other activities, and you could perhaps advise me on your own current efforts for the Afrikaners as an example to emulate.

          • Spartacus

            When I said that it’s not enough, I was referring to telling whites in the rest of the world about the situation there, not to you personally.

            I’m afraid I myself can’t do much other than obsessively post pictures and links of what’s happening there to everyone I know and on sites like this, and to occasionally donate small amounts of money, equivalent of 5-10$ or so at a time (I have no stable income, so I can’t afford more).

          • David Ashton

            Thanks and good wishes.

    • Beetlejuice

      I’m trying to spread the word far and wide and as much as possible. Link to Censorbugbear or SA Pig whenever and wherever possible, the facts are on our side, facts the media refuse to report.
      Unfortunately, the western media takes the word of the ANC as gospel instead of the empirical evidence, don’t want to offend blacks especially if they’re murdering whites.

      Every white South African should be offered immediate refugee status in the USA, Australia or England and given the same perks and life time benefits that are given to Somalis and other Bantu refugees

  • dd121

    Bill is arrogant, bombastic and populist. He’s no conservative but he’s right on this one.

  • 1proactive2

    This “reverend” just can’t be honest, and his line that there may be “an open season on black males” borders on the insane. Out of the thousands of black assaults on whites per year, and this black talking head claims the potential for “open season on blacks” is the stuff of complete corruption.

    • OlderWoman

      Levar Burton is a one-trick pony. His career nosedived after “Roots”. Becoming a “Revrun” means he’s just another fake Christian and race-baiter like Sharpton, Jackson, T. D. Jakes.

  • O’Reilly is toying with fire. Black crime can not be attributed to blacks.
    It can only be attributed to fatherless homes, poor schools, socio-economic class ….

    • baldowl

      Don’t forget blaming white people!

    • evilsandmich

      It’s always fun to catch the small (small) cadre of blacks who, being victims of horrific black crime and might even buy into the ‘blame YT’ line, that just don’t care and would rather their neighbors behave themselves. They’re horribly outnumbered, and not helped by white liberals.
      Reminds me of a story where my buddy served on a jury which hung on convicting a black guy of raping a black woman. The holdout wasn’t the black woman on the jury, but a guilt ridden white liberal college prof.

    • Beetlejuice

      “It can only be attributed to fatherless homes, poor schools, socio-economic class ….”

      Which they’ll tell us are the results of white oppression, hatred and racism. Anything to blame whites as the cause of black perfidy, violence and malfeasance.

  • Funruffian

    The Reverend claims it is not in their DNA, but in geographic territories. He fails to support that argument with viable evidence. We all here know that Blacks have a much higher propensity to violence than other races. Levar Burton talks about imagery? Is this some Afro-centrist delusion? Imagery of what? I can only see the reality and the statistics which weigh heavily in favor of Bill’s argument.

    • To some extent territory does matter. If we deported every black in the United States to the moon, they would rapidly become very, very peaceful.

    • Beetlejuice

      The “reverend” has about as much credibility as those two other “reverends,” Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
      He needs to be asked why it is that no matter where blacks go, Europe, Asia, the USA, violence “suddenly” skyrockets. Do those areas change geographically when blacks get there or is the blacks themselves who are responsible for their own massive rates of violence? The ANC leaders in South Africa proclaim there are few or normal numbers of killings of whites in South Africa and THAT’S what the media presents.
      Unfortunately in this case, the media will choose to defend the reverend and not their own pundits on this issue. Anything to damage white America.

      • Funruffian

        Any feeble retort from these Black leaders is stupid. A car, a tree, a building and a sidewalk are incapable of committing a crime. I always scoffed at those lame arguments about areas being bad and that you can’t blame the Blacks for being in crime ridden ghettos. There is nothing wrong with an area. It’s the inhabitants of the area that make it bad. They are a product of their own environment.

  • Funruffian

    The media in the USA is the most evil institution on the planet.

    • Beetlejuice

      Not just the American media, but the entire Western press.

  • By comparison, the most recent stats show the homicide rate in East St. Louis, Illinois is 101 per 100k.

  • itdoesnotmatter

    disqus_x, you mean you did not know that? You need to keep up!

    Among the zillion other existential reasons for all-black-all-the-time crime: the weather is my personal favorite.

  • knuckledragger

    “…O’Reilly also concluded that trees were most likely made of wood.”

  • Romulus

    Stoke it bill!! Cmon and lets get er on!!! Anybody can go directly to the Dept. Of justice website slash crime statistics and read it for themselves. The FBI has similar data. Jared taylor’s book white racial consciousness does a great job with crime data by race.

  • Evette Coutier

    DeGraff obviously knows little about geologic sociology and nothing about genetics.

  • Pax Romana

    “It’s going to be a problem when people feel that it’s open season for whites to shoot blacks.”

    THERE IT IS! One of their own finally said it!

    He purposely ignores the lop sided statistics of interracial violence, where blacks are overwhelmingly the aggressors.

    They know that Trayvon Martin probably assaulted Zimmerman first. They just don’t care! As a “Crazy *** Cracka” Zimmerman had it coming and deserved it.

    Black racists and their anti-white liberal mentors don’t want whites to have the right to defend themselves against black violent aggression. They do however, want whites to tolerate the assaults, accept the beatings, appreciate the murders, enjoy the rapes and then just shut up and die. They want a free hand at revenge and get’n some get back. Because in their twisted minds we deserve it.

    “There is, I should think, no Negro living in America who has not felt, briefly or for long periods, with anguish sharp or dull, in varying degrees and to varying effect, simple, naked and unanswerable hatred; who has not wanted to smash any white face he may encounter in a day, to violate, out of motives of the cruelest vengeance, their women, to break the bodies of all white people and bring them low…”- James Baldwin

  • WR_the_realist

    I’m not a fan of Bill O’Reilly, he’s a bully to everyone he “interviews”, but watch him get fired for telling the truth. For the first time in my life I’ll feel sorry for him.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      I think O’Reilly’s days at Fox are numbered. Paula Deen was a HUGE money machine but was thrown under the bus by her network and sponsors for something she said 30 years ago.


      • willbest

        O’Reilly can’t be Paula Deened. One he isn’t a democrat so the standards are different. Two he is also a white man so he is less of a target. Its only women and minorities that the dem mob swarms over if they try to show anything other than herd mentality.

        • ncpride

          Wrong. The list of White men who have been ‘Paula Deen-ed’ for speaking the truth about black crime is very long indeed.

        • Beetlejuice

          Get real.

          O’Reilly is a democrat and a progressive who doesn’t like taxes, otherwise he’s be on MSNBC. He’s pro-open borders, pro-gay marriage and pro-gun control.

          White men less of a target? Tell that to Al Campanis, Jimmy “The Greek” Synder, Don Imus, Johnny Rocker, Michael Richards and many many others who were “Paula Deen-ed” and had their careers destroyed.

          • willbest

            So what you are saying is he is a libertarian that goes off the reservation on gun control.

            And the number of white men who should have their careers destroyed in a similar manner is quite long as well. Joe Biden figures prominently on that list.

          • Beetlejuice

            As a Democrat you have protection (DemonRAT Robert “Sheets” Byrd for example) but NOT AS A WHITE MALE.

          • WR_the_realist

            O’Reilly is not and never was a libertarian.

          • Major

            In other words…O’Really is a typical New York weenie…only not Jewish?

          • Beetlejuice

            “O’Really” doesn’t control the Fox network, it is exactly like all the others. He’s strayed outside their PC lines. Look for an apology at some point today.

            The best thing to do about this blowhard “O’Really” is to turn him off, in fact turn off the FauxNews network and all the others.

    • Beetlejuice

      Besides being insufferable, O’Reilly also gives a media platform to that racist Marc Lamont Hill. But, I doubt that will save him from telling the truth about blacks.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

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

    You’d better watch your mouth, Bill, unless you want to get “Paula Deen-ed.”

    There’s also that story about you, Andrea Mackris, a Loofah and Falafel, remember?

    You settled that case in record time so it would disappear down the memory hole. Do you really want that dredged up again?

    The Fox News Channel host was named in a sexual harassment lawsuit brimming with lurid details about vibrators, phone sex, threesomes, masturbation, Caribbean shower fantasies, a Thai sex show, falafel, stewardess trysts, vehicular coupling, and Al Franken.

    That’s the printable part of the complaint, there’s lots more I’m sure you don’t want aired. I hear Andrea Mackris has a lot of money these days she got “from somewhere” and no longer has to work. She is now known for her taste in expensive designer clothing.

    I suspect in a few days you’ll be backpedaling; mentioning the truth about black crime is like touching the third rail.

    After Zimmerman walks and the riots start you have only yourself to blame. Fair and Balanced indeed…


    • Major

      “lurid details about vibrators, phone sex, threesomes, masturbation…”

      Sounds like a normal adult conversation to me. Are you saying that words alone should indict a man, rather than actions? That her “feminine” sensibilities couldn’t deal with the topics that she participated in? That she was so “fragile” that a 4 letter word would get her apoplectic?

      She was a gold digging underling, fema-nazi that saw an opportunity to use frees speech between consenting adults to lie….ensnare and trap the man. And then cash in. Women like her and Anita Hill and all the male killers…need one thing…a man with a gold card.

      I sure as hell don’t hold doors open for women anymore…with the exception being my spouse and the women in my family. Todays “women” have been raised to harass, mock, intimidate, scorn and generally hate men…to them…men aren’t needed.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Calm down.

        You’ve completely misread and misinterpreted my comment.

        My point is this: The minute we White dares to say or do anything outside the PC dogma boundaries, male OR female (Paula Deen, Pat Buchanan) we get the shaft, lose our livelihoods and it FOREVER hangs over our heads, as with Bill O’Reilly and the sexual harassment suit. He mostly toes the democrat party line and, unlike Pat Buchanan, was able to carry on with his career.

        I’m sure O’Reilly doesn’t want the lurid details from the lawsuit splashed across the media again as it will be loud and clear–whether true or not, all he can do is deny it — if there is any fallout from his comment that “young blacks commit the most crime.” Is O’Reilly trying to put another nail in his coffin?

        My post wasn’t about whether Andrea Mackris told the truth or not — the fact is that it is THERE, has Bill O’Reilly’s name all over it and was settled for a LOT of money. Blackmail or not, it’s tied to him like an albatross and will be brought up if Fox decides to toss him under the bus.

        Geez, people read the damn comments carefully before passing judgement on someone.


        • Does it help any if I still love you, Bon? My work today was teaching Ariadne how to sing the chorus of “Come Out And Fight” and some verses of the lyrics, along with ten-digit multiplication. I show her shortcuts for that.

  • mobilebay

    Did anyone hear O’Bloviator last night? In responding to a viewer’s email that our immigraton laws should be enforced, O’Reilly replied by asking if the person “really” wanted enforcement and then proceeded to enumerate what would happen: Illegals rounded up with their children and sent to detention centers to await deportation…He practically scoffed at that picture. I’m sitting there wondering why this is so wrong. He’ll hear about that, for sure, but you can bet that he’ll be ready with a dozen excuses.

  • evilsandmich

    I don’t think anyone believes that. Libs fire up the excuse machine, but they don’t deny the disparity.

  • Beetlejuice

    I agree. And this is why blacks should not be in white countries, they cannot cope with advanced white civilizations and the results are black failure, violence and dysfunction.

    • Creepy as a cracker!

      The results are the same in black countries too!

  • disqus_irCdmAu8It

    If the USA were to NOT count crimes in Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore and Cleveland, the USA drops down from the top of the international crime score board to near the bottom. The four cities crime stats are nearly 100% Black-on-Black. Why haven’t the race baiting reverends, Al and Jesse, campaigned against inner city crime?

  • Creepy as a cracker!

    High crime and high failure rates are a common trait among blacks where ever you go. Some things will never change.

  • SWPL2

    Sigh. If anything is an indication of how hispanics will be integrated into the white community, this is it. They will be labeled “white” and charged with racism.

  • OlderWoman

    The problems is lack of morals. Blacks have CHOSEN the criminal life for themselves. I feel no guilt for them. I also have no compassion for them at all. They are the most ignorant people to walk the face of the earth.

    • Creepy as a cracker!

      Here, here!

  • 1proactive2

    I’d love to see this DeGraff cartoon character on Bill’s show along with reporter Colin O’Flaherty. O’Flaherty wrote the book, “White Girl Bleed a Lot” which documents the years of mobs of blacks attacking whites and Asians across the country. At times the attacks led to the death of the victim. It would be DeGraff’s fantasy of potential persecution of blacks against the reality of widespread and savage black racism. I won’t hold my breath, however.

  • The black rabble rousers were fishing for a payoff.

  • Funruffian

    That is the same inane argument for those who ascribe to Institutionalized Racism. All they are doing is blaming others for their own atrocities they commit. You can visit the most impoverished towns in West Virginia that are exclusively White and there you will never hear or see crime at all.

  • Dave4088

    Lest you think O’Reilly is a secret racialist, he only reported the high black crime rate in the context of black on black crime. He would never, ever compare interracial crime rates which show that blacks victimize whites 45% of the time while whites victimize blacks only 3% of the time. This means blacks are 1500% more likely to attack whites than the reverse.

    Don’t expect Billy boy or FAUX News to come close to that statistic since they are true believers in racial equality and believe the right government policy can make blacks as law abiding and productive as white people.

  • Christopher

    Joseph – you do work for the current administration, right? Only a total idiot would believe your lies. Where I live Blacks commit 99% of the crime and they target white homes, looking for guns and Apple products.

  • MadMike

    Maybe O’Reilly is choosing his words carefully, he is an Intelligent man and I sure he knows the truth but has to watch what he says, One wrong word and, well I don’t have to elaborate.

  • JqOgershok

    O’Rielly has repeatedly said it is the high unemployment of these young black men that has led to this high crime rate and that the current administration has done nothing of significance to end this.
