Does Bill O'Reilly own a copy of the Truth Behind Hip-hop?

“Trayvon Martin was killed because circumstances got out of control. He was scrutinized by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman because of the way he looked, not necessarily his skin color, there’s no evidence of that, but because he was a stranger to Zimmerman and was dressed in clothing sometimes by street criminals.

It was wrong for Zimmerman to confront Martin based on his appearance. But the culture that we have in this country does lead to criminal profiling because young black American men are so often involved in crime. The statistics, overwhelming! But here’s the headline: Young black men commit homicides at a rate 10 times greater than whites and Hispanics combined. Presented with damning evidence like that, and like the many Holocausts in Chicago, where hundreds of African Americans are murdered each year, the civil rights industry looks the other way or makes excuses.

black_motherThey blame guns, poor education, lack of jobs. Rarely do they define the problem accurately. So here it is: The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African American family. Right now, about 73% of all black babies are born out of wedlock. That drives poverty and the lack of involved fathers leads to young boys crowing up resentful and unsupervised. When was the last time you saw a public service ad telling young black girls to avoid becoming pregnant? Has President Obama done such an ad? How about Jackson or Sharpton? Has the Congressional Black Caucus demanded an ad like that? How about the PC pundits who work for NBC News?

White people don’t force black people to have babies out of wedlock. That’s a personal decision. A decision that has devastated millions of children and led to disaster both socially and economically.
So, raised without much structure, young black men often reject education and gravitate towards the street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs. Nobody forces them to do that. Again, it is a personal decision.31826 But the entertainment industry encourages the irresponsibility by marketing a gangsta culture: hip-hop moves, trashy TV shows to impressionable children. In fact, President Obama has welcomed some of the worst offenders in that cesspool to the White House when he should be condemning what these weasels are doing. These so-called entertainers get rich while the kids who emulate their lyrics and attitude destroy themselves.
And then there’s the drug situation. Go to Detroit and ask any living on the south side of the 8 Mile Road what destroyed their city. They will tell you narcotics. They know addiction leads to crime and debasement. What do the race hustlers and limousine liberals yell about? The number of black men in prison for selling drugs. ‘Oh, it’s so unfair! It’s a non-violent crime. And blacks are targeted!’ That is one of the biggest lies in the history of this country!

al-sharpton-final-500srgbThe thugs who sell drugs, no matter what color they are, deserve to be put away for long periods of time. They sell poison, they sell a product that enslaves and kills. They are scum. When was the last time you heard the Congressional Black Caucus say that? How about Jackson and Sharpton? How about President Obama? The solution to the epidemic of violent crime in poor, black neighborhoods is to actively discourage pregnancies out of marriage, to impose strict discipline in the public schools, including mandatory student uniforms, and to create a zero tolerance policy for gun and drug crimes imposing harsh mandatory prison time on the offenders. And finally, challenging the entertainment industry to stop peddling garbage. Hey listen up you greed-heads: if a kid can’t speak proper English, uses the f-word in every sentence, is disrespectful in his or her manner, that child will never, never, be able to compete in the marketplace of America, never. And it has nothing to do with slavery. It has everything to do with you Hollywood people and you derelict parents. You’re the ones hurting these vulnerable children.

Rick-Ross-and-Lil-Wayne-picYou want a conversation? You got it. You want a better situation for blacks? Give them a chance to revive their neighborhoods and culture. Work with the good people to stop the bad people. Pumping money into the chaos does little. You can’t legislate good parenting or responsible entertainment but you can fight against the madness with discipline, a firm message, and little tolerance for excuse making. It is now time for the African American leadership, including President Obama, to stop the nonsense. Walk away from the world of victimization and grievance. And lead the way out of this mess.”

    Well said! Black, white, yellow and green need to bring God into our lives on a personal level. He is our ONLY hope, not obama or any other “representative” of the black community.Clearly their beliefs & motives are questionable. As believers we should be encouraging our children to abstain from sex before marriage,stop listening and watching filth and make JESUS the center of our lives. American society is asleep to the schemes of the evil one. When God’s people humble themselves and pray…….., but too many of us are caught up too. Wake up saints! Stop looking to mere men to solve these problems. The first thing we need to realize is the problem is spiritual and we have to use our spiritual weapons in this war.

  2. Randy Williams

    Wow! That’s powerful. The same entertainment we watch is influencing our kids. I use to indulge in all of that recently, even with knowing the truth. We are repeating the same as our ancestors. I’m not a porch monkey. I don’t see that as entertainment, but a distraction from Yahweh.

  3. Rachel

    Not so long ago I was thinking ‘What’s wrong with black people?’ I live in the Caribbean and its the same here, absent fathers, teenage pregnancies, guys who don’t want an education, most criminals are blacks and so on. It truly saddens me, because most of them don’t even notice that something is wrong. They get angry when you point at the issues and say you are being negative. The local black artists look up to the Americans and want to be just like them. Everybody wants to get rich fast and the mess that is happening in relationships is unthinkable. There are so many lies and people refuse to see the truth. The church is weak and cannot stand up because we have allowed so much sin. Praying that God will raise up some Godly man to speak up and take a stand for the truth. Blessings and may the Lord guide you in your work.

  4. Robert

    I applaud Bill O’Reilly for his comments and speaking the truth.A truth you won’t hear across many African -American pulpits in this hour. If we would simply embrace a life of holiness and sanctification that God requires many unbelievers would be converted because of what they see from real converted believer that follow Jesus Christ.

  5. Kerry

    I agreed with every word he spoke, I watch him when he gave his talking points. I only problem is that blk leaders don’t see this as the problem. The race hustlers and others make a living dividing the races. These same ppl don’t see the destruction of blk race through abortion ,homosexuality , fatherless homes as a problem because those who wish that we just cease to be, because as marguerite Sanger said the negro r just weeds that should be destroyed, Charles Darwin call us inferer less than human. But blk ppl look up to these ppl but they all drank the same cool aid and sit @ the feet of their master. Pray for revival to come to the blk church and then to this nation soon before it is to late.

  6. Harold

    The saddest thing about this truth is that it took a white conservative with a platform to speak while all the Blacks with major media platforms are silent. We would rather do a show about the n word but avoiding the n actions

  7. Brandon Baylock

    Bill is right on point with his comments. People don’t want to hear the truth. Everything he has said was the truth plain and simple.

  8. Carissa Guidry

    Yes, that God for this minister and exposing the truth!! Yes, this article is right on point and as Christians this is a time to pray and not try to go against each other. We need to help each other, and remember that the enemy is the devil.

  9. Jessica

    I just read in Matthew Henry Commentary this statement concerning Isaiah 5, “Sin weakens the strength, the root of a people so that they are easily rooted up; it defaces the beauty, the blossom, of a people and takes away the hope of fruit.” Is this not where we are? Lord, have mercy on us that we may see the errors of our ways and in godly repentance turn from the lie to the Truth. Weep for sins of our people and preach the Gospel. JESUS is our ONLY hope.

    It’s funny that Ex Ministries made this post. Last night I was skipping through the channels and came across his show. I am normally not a fan of Fox News nor MSNBC or CNN for that matter but I watched them all off and on. I came across Bill O’Reilly making some very truthful comments about Rap and Hip Hop and its impact on women. He said that it upsets him that the music is harmful to black women and their self esteem and that it ticks him off the most that our black leaders like Al Sharpton never address that. It didn’t matter that this was coming from a white man, he was right. Until 2009 I lived in self hatred and believed for a while as a black woman that I wasn’t worthy of anything and did a lot of self-destructive things as a result. Some of that was me and my self esteem but some of it was the culture.

    73% of babies born out of wedlock is the fault of the parents. How hard is it the get your life together, court a woman, ask her parents permission for marriage, get married and then have children. How hard is that? Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson’s wealth continue to increase as the black community decreases in economic opportunity, healthcare and most of all spiritually (A relationship with God). Those guys are poverty pimps selling you the idea that the white man has created an unjust system when in a lot of cases a lot of us make dumb mistakes and want someone to blame. Race is nothing more than a token word to be thrown around to keep people divided. I’m sorry, but if you are saved you should not have some “racial supremacy”. Saved people love those of all races and are willing to fellowship with their fellow Christians of all races.

    EXACTLY, PASTOR G.CRAIG, YESTERDAY I WATCHED THE BILL O’REILLY’ SHOW, AND ASKED MYSELF THAT EXACT QUESTION, BECAUSE I OWN THIS DVD’THE TRUTH BEHIND HIP HOP”, AND I WAS LIKE: ”THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU TALKED ABOUT!”

    MAY GOD HELP US! AND LET PEOPLE HEAR GOD’S VOICE! BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

  12. Zounds Of Joy

    It’s possible a copy, but it’s also possible that (God) is allowing this man to confirm what “Ex-ministry” has been saying all along about what our (God) disapproves of…..Amen!!!…it’s good to know that (God) is and 4ever in control. No amount trash that the devil tries to inflict on (God’s) people will last. 4 we know that in the midst of our storm, the sun will shine again. IF WE FAINT NOT!!!

  13. Iris

    It is good to know that there is a sound minded remnant out here who are willing and able to see the truth, no matter where it comes from. If God used even Nebuchadnezzar to cause the children of Israel to come to the truth, then surely Bill O’Reilly is just as usable :-)

  14. gillian

    I also was fortunate to watch the Bill o Reilly show a couple nights ago. I totally agree with everything he said.
    The dysfunction of the black family is an epidemic, I also think a lot of this is generational and spiritual. The church needs to rise and speak the truth. Only the power of the Holy Spirit can break these strongholds.

  15. Milk vs Meat

    The problem is SIN! The main sin of rejecting Christ’s finished work on Calvary, the only sin that will send a man to hell. The problems in the black community (all communities) is no God ruling and reigning in their hearts and lives. This is what Mr. O’Reilly will not say because he doesn’t believe that, but he has done a great job of describing the symptoms of the problem. This is where the church needs to stand up and proclaim truth. The truth that only Jesus Christ can change the heart and life of a man. Only when the Gospel is preached can the Holy Spirit draw men to Christ. No amount of commentary, marching, protesting, assembling, or any other noble gestures can do what Christ had to die for. If you want to see lives changed, deal with the root of the problem and the symptoms will go away.

  16. Patricia

    @Milk vs. Meat. So, true. Sin is definitely the problem. I think Mr. O’Reilly’s point was how the issue seems to be laid at the white man feet by so many people. Instead of blaming the real culprit. We as parenst need to take control over what we allow to come into our house. The people that are selling satan lies do not need to be held up in high esteem. They need to be told the truth about their actions. We all are responsible for our own actions. And the color of our skin does not change that nor does it have anything to do with it.

  17. Rene

    It’s going to get worse. Even God told Moses that the Isrealites were going to live for the devil and reject him totally. It’s how life is – the devil is the god of this world. Bill made some good points but he hasn’t said anything we didn’t already know. We’re salt and light in the earth so we do what we can to help our sinners but the majority of our people (blacks) won’t listen regardless of being born again or not and will continue to be part of the problem.
