There's been a lot of media buzz this past week about conservative pundit Bill O'Reilly's appalling comments about how surprised he was that people were behaving in a civilized manner at a Harlem restaurant.

During the September 19th edition of his syndicated radio show, O'Reilly told his listeners that he "couldn't get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia's restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it's run by blacks, primarily black patronship."

Sounding very surprised, like it was was an eye-opening experience, O'Reilly added: "There wasn't one person in Sylvia's who was screaming, 'M-Fer, I want more iced tea.'"

Maybe someone should bring O'Reilly to Philadelphia for an Eagles game. How surprised he would surely be at the uncivilized behavior of the infamously rabid Eagles fans, since most of the ill-behaved ones happen to be white.
