Watch: Bill O’Reilly and Jon Stewart Battle it Out on Whether ‘White Privilege’ Exists!
Bill O’Reilly went on the Daily Show to publicize his new book “Killing Patton,” but Jon Stewart took the occasion to yell at him on the subject of “white privilege.” Although it devolves into a shouting match, they actually present both sides of the argument very well.
Personally, I do think that some form of “white privilege” exists, but too many use it as an excuse for failure or in-ambition, while race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson take advantage of the community to enrich themselves. In the end, Bill is right – whatever advantage some may have because of race, socio-economic status, or anything else, we still all have opportunity in America, and we need to focus on and celebrate that rather than wallow in pity and victim mentality.
And that’s what missing from the conversation – how liberalism has done more to destroy minority communities than any exaggerated “white privilege.”
