In a segment Monday night on The O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly claimed the left supported marijuana legalization because children “in certain ghetto neighborhoods” were using the drug.
The Fox News host was responding to the New York Times’ call for the legalization of marijuana.
Joined by anti-legalization advocate Kevin Sabet, O’Reilly said that “the left” has claimed that marijuana is harmless and that they are concerned that “the blacks” are being trapped by drug laws.
“Look, the left is basically saying ‘harmless,’ okay, which I don’t agree with, I think you know that. Not a harmless substance, alright,” O’Reilly explained. “And, it’s blacks, you know, because in certain ghetto neighborhoods it’s part of the culture. nine-year-old boys and girls are smoking it, and they don’t like that. They don’t want those kids to be targeted by the cops.”
O’Reilly did not note that, although black and white Americans use marijuana at about the same rates, African Americans are arrested at nearly four times the rate of whites for marijuana possession.
Taking his cue from O’Reilly, Sabet added, “The last thing poor communities need is another substance. Actually, there are eight times as many liquor stores in communities of color in this country. Why would we want to add another..” before O’Reilly began talking over him.
As O’Reilly guest Stephen Gutwillig, from the Drug Policy Alliance, attempted to explain that the changes advocated by the Times were not about encouraging use, but “controlling marijuana in a different way,” O’Reilly cut him off.
“Look, you know the unintended consequence of legalization of anything is to send a message to children that it’s socially acceptable, ” O’Reilly lectured. “I mean, any parent who is smoking marijuana in front of the child is abusing the child, in my opinion. And now you have pot shops, you’re going to buy it at 7-11? It’s insane.”
I just— There are no words. What an ignorant racist piece of shit.
As someone who have lived in both predominantly black and white neighborhoods, white children are taking way more drugs than black kids. They sell drugs on the yellow school bus. They start taking drugs in middle school (7th and 8 grade) and the bathroom is normally the place of choice to get high. The amount of heroine overdoses for young people in GA is startling. My cousin who also lives in a white neighborhood had four of his son’s high school friends die of a heroine overdose. Bill O’Reilly loves the narrative that all black people do is smoke weed and live off the government even though it’s false. I’m linking this article regarding the heroine issue because I’m sure someone will want to dispute it. http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local/heroin-addiction-plagues-georgia-suburbs/ndGzy/spoke the truth. My white classmates from middle school were function alcoholics, potheads, coke heads, pill poppers by sophomore year came around but they started in middle school. People love the present the narrative of the deviant black youth, while “conveniently” overlooking the problematic behaviour of white youth. Y’all can miss me with that bs.
Man I used to have a white friend who used to use my binder snort her crushed up pills off of (she already had a collapsed nostril because she did that shit so much) on the bus on our way to vet assisting training….. The black kids were all smoking pot and the white kids were snorting coke, pills, dropping acid, smoking weed, huffing and bragging about it!
