Bob Beckel: O’Reilly doesn’t know anything about the black community

Four co-hosts of “The Five” commended Bill O’Reilly’s suggestion that American needs a wider conversation on racial issues racial issues, but the fifth co-host, Bob Beckel, mocked him for claiming to be the only one talking about it.

After watching a clip of O’Reilly speaking with Mark Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League, Beckel let loose.

“I want Bill to know, I can’t be more excited of the fact he is taking this on all by himself,” Beckel said. “Bill O’Reilly doesn’t know anything more about being in the black community than anybody who’s never been there.”

Noting that O’Reilly’s segments on race were some of the most watched and most talked about, Dana Perino defended his use of the show to “say some things that are uncomfortable to say in polite society.”

Eric Bolling criticized President Obama for injecting race into the debate about the Trayvon Martin shooting.

“Every time somebody says we need to have a conversation about race, the translation is we must agree with you about it,” Greg Gutfeld said. “If you were to talk about families, and self-reliance, that’s construed as racist.”

Andrea Tantaros criticized President Obama and Eric Holder for not taking the lead in conversations on race.

“He has an opportunity to step up as a role model, because he is one and he should and he’s missing his moment,” Tantaros said, referring to Obama.
