The ousted and disgraced Bill O'Reilly's blatant anti-black cracks, digs, slurs and putdowns didn't start last year, two years ago, or even a decade ago. They started almost from the day that he took the helm of the "Factor" the last century. O'Reilly kicked things off with this zinger in early 1999, "Will African-Americans break away from the pack thinking and reject immorality--because that's the reason the family's breaking apart--alcohol, drugs, infidelity. You have to reject that, and it doesn't seem--and I'm broadly speaking here, but a lot of African-Americans won't reject it."

With this quip, he tapped all the vile, ancient set stereotypes about blacks, crime, drugs, immorality, and rotten families that supposedly explain why blacks are stuck in crumbling ghettoes and wallow in poverty. O'Reilly repeatedly came back to variations on this theme time and again in the years to come.

On black athletes, "Look, you know as well as I do most of these kids come out and they can't speak English."

On black high achievers, "Does anyone know where the Best Men are? I hope they're not in the parking lot stealing our hubcaps."

On mocking black leaders, 'Oh, I can't get a job. Whitey won't let me,' or 'I can't get educated. The teachers are bad, so I'm going to go out and get high and sell drugs. That's the only way we can make money here.' You know what I mean? And it's a vicious cycle"

On Trump's pledge to create more jobs for blacks, "Many of them are ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads, and I hate to be generalized about it -- but it's true. If you look at all the educational statistics, how are you going to give jobs to people who aren't qualified for jobs?"

On black girls and pregnancy, "Young girls are getting pregnant in the African American community." "Now it's about 70 percent out of wedlock. She knows and doesn't seem to care."

On black children, "Now, the race hustlers who apparently have not walked the streets of poor neighborhoods lately, immediately accused me of racism. And that is why the acute problem of cultural deprivation among under-classed children of all colors is never addressed."

On black crime, "There is a violent subculture in the African-American community that should be exposed and confronted."

On Freddy Grey's slaying, "Freddie Gray's lifestyle for many years, led him to this terrible thing which is not only impacted him and his family but all the police officers and that lifestyle should be condemned."

On the black condition, "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."
