Bill O'Reilly: Al Sharpton in working with Rappers who are Harmful to black children

from The Blaze:

Fresh off his Monday “Talking Points Memo” that sparked a heated debate about race and the problems harming the black community, Bill O’Reilly teed off again Thursday, slamming the “civil rights industry” for not addressing the core reasons why many blacks are not succeeding in the “market place.” Due to that fact, young blacks continue to be “at risk” and are faced with “enormous obstacles to overcome.”

However, O’Reilly started his “Talking Points Memo” with a scathing critique of rapper Lil Wayne and one of his “piece of garbage” songs in which he brags that he beats “that p***y up like Emmett Till.” Till was savagely murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 for flirting with a white girl in 1955.
The Till family was outraged by the disgusting lyrics – and rightfully so. Mountain Dew was also unhappy about the offensive song and pulled a multimillion dollar endorsement deal with the rapper.
It wasn’t long before none other than Al Sharpton and his group, National Action Network, intervened in the dispute between Mountain Dew, Lil Wayne and the Till family, O’Reilly explained.
“National Action Network doesn’t want the end result to be the penalization of artists – Although they clearly need to be corrected…” Sharpton said in a May 8 statement.
Then O’Reilly delivered the “shocker”: The parent company of Lil Wayne’s Cash Money Content, “which markets vile stuff that hurts children,” is a partner in distributing Sharpton’s upcoming book. It would later be revealed that it wasn’t until after his intervention that his publisher penned the distribution deal with the rapper’s parent company.
“That’s right, Al Sharpton is in business with people who put out entertainment harmful to children,” O’Reilly said.
