Bill O'Reilly talking with Professor Marc Lamont Hill, a regular guest/target on O'Reilly's show, about securing the US/Mexico border, said to Hill, "â€œSay youâ€™re a cocaine dealerâ€”and you kind of look like one a little bit.â€ To which Hill replied, gamely: â€œAs do youâ€¦ you know, you actually look like a cocaine user.â€
I thought having black commentators on the show was supposed to make O'Reilly look less like a racist. Evidently sometimes it just oozes out of their pores. Ed Shultz featured the incident in the segment of his program called Psycho Talk. Watch it here.
Anyone want to take a crack at deconstructing this little exchange that occurred on national television?
