 O'Reilly on Sylvia's Restaurant

During a September 2007 episode of his syndicated talk radio program, Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly appeared to commend black people for being civil. Discussing a recent dinner outing at Sylvia's Restaurant in Harlem, O'Reilly noted that despite the restaurant's black ownership and primarily black clientele, he was treated with respect and "had a great time."

He later expanded on his comments with Fox News contributor Juan Williams, no stranger to racially-charged moments himself, adding, "There wasn't one person in Sylvia's who was screaming, 'M-Fer, I want more iced tea.'" Motherfucker, why are you so surprised?
