O’Reilly surprised “there was no difference” between Harlem restaurant and other New York restaurants

Summary: Discussing his recent dinner with Rev. Al Sharpton at the Harlem restaurant Sylvia’s, Bill O’Reilly reported that he “couldn’t get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia’s restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it’s run by blacks, primarily black patronship.” O’Reilly added: “There wasn’t one person in Sylvia’s who was screaming, ‘M-Fer, I want more iced tea.’ “

Wow. Media Matters has the full article but I can’t help but feel just a little opinionated and outraged at these comments. I can’t even fathom how this man gets away with making such a comment. His blank stereotyping of many different races and groups goes way beyong ignorance at this point.
