Note to Bill O'Reilly

Thank you for proving that the only thing you know about black people is all those negative images in the media. More telling, many other people, people we are likely to have contact with in everyday life, have the same beliefs . . . like the other one you expressed, that all black people follow the Revs. Jackson and Sharpton like little children running after their parents.

I'll bet you also believe that Africa is one huge country rather than a diverse continent.

There really is nothing we can do to disprove these narrow beliefs. Fortunately, we do not crave your approval of us; nor do we need it. I always suspected you were woefully uninformed, but the clueless are not necessarily newsworthy, they're just unfortunate.

Now, do us all a favor and take your amazement and go dine at Lutece.

Moving right along . . . .

I find it vastly amusing that this is the same guy who originally hosted "Inside Edition." Why anyone takes him seriously is beyond me.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I don't think what he said was racist (as some are calling it); I think he was just stupid. (Note to BO: Next time you stick your feet in your mouth, wear the mint-flavored shoes and socks; it'll taste much better.)

Well said, Bettye!

I think his comments were both racist and stupid. But that's my opinion.

I don't listen and won't ever listen to his show. He can't retire soon enough for me.

That's right, I'd forgotten this was the guy from Inside Edition. Thanks for reminding me about that, Donna!

Patricia, I agree. Racist and stupid. But my husband thinks he did it deliberately, in hopes of getting on the news and perhaps higher ratings for his show.

Aren't differences of opinion wonderful?
