Bill O'Reilly, host of Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor," dispensed some more controversial advice for the black community on his show last night.
O’Reilly claimed the black community needs more peer pressure — instead of birth control and comprehensive sex ed — to stop the rise of single parenthood, noted RawStory.com (video below).
“I want a big, public campaign funded by the federal government to go in and tell the girls and the young ladies, ‘Don’t do this, this condemns you to poverty, it is destructive to your child, wait until you have a stable situation to become pregnant,’" O'Reilly said. "Would you get behind that campaign?”
“I would get behind if it had comprehensive sex education and had easy access to contraception,” said guest James Carville.
O'Reilly opposed comprehensive sex ed for several minutes and added: “So, you don’t want peer pressure brought, you want to fund, fund, fund! More money, more money.”
Carville agreed on his own terms.
“Absolutely. I want easy access to contraception" and later stated the obvious for O'Reilly: “The federal government is not going to stop young people from having sex."
“It’s going to discourage!" O'Reilly said. "Actively discourage! Peer pressure! Jay Z, the multimillion dollar man, have him get out and do a couple public service announcements."
