Bill O’Reilly advised black Americans to wear t-shirts that say “Don’t Get Pregnant At 14” and “Don’t Abandon Your Children” during a segment with Martin Luther King Jr.’s son on Wednesday night.
Guest Martin Luther King III told the host of “The O’Reilly Factor” that America needs to hear a unifying message amid recent racial turmoil. O’Reilly interjected with his suggestion for “a pathway to success” for black people.
“Don’t abandon your children. Don’t get pregnant at 14. Don’t allow your neighborhoods to deteriorate into free-fire zones. That’s what the African American community should have on their T-shirts,” he said.
“Am I wrong?” O’Reilly asked his guest.
King almost immediately segued to a different point. “Well, I think that’s a part of it, but that’s not the entirety,” he said, going on to say Americans need to address more than just police misconduct.
