I went to Cafe Marche’ the other day, and boy those white people sure know how to cook..

Bill ‘no spin’ O’Reilly on his gustatory experience at Sylvia’s (a famous restaurant in Harlem):

“I was up in Harlem a few weeks ago. We went to Sylvia’s, a very famous restaurant in Harlem. I had a great time, people were tremendously respectful. And I 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 about a black patronship, it was the same. And that’s really what this society is all about now, here in the USA. There’s no dfference, there’s no diffference!”

O’Reilly also said: “There wasn’t one person in Sylvia’s who was screaming, ‘M-Fer, I want more iced tea.’ “

Bill O’ does live in a zone all right, but it’s apparently in a whites only zone. ‘Those folks’ can actually act civilized, Mr. O’Reilly. O’Reilly’s purported point is that there’s more to black America than Snoop, OGs, and Ludacris. Many of who actually LIVE in ‘normal’ America already know this, Bill.

He doesn’t deserve the ‘Imus’ treatment for this, but he does deserve to be exposed for what he really is: an insulated man living in the rarefied air of the Republican News Channel and apparently a neighborhood where blacks are confined to the maid’s quarters.

  1. He wasn’t joking? Not even a tiny bit? It’s hard to imagine people think like this. I’ve been insulated myself, though. Surrounded mostly by people who aren’t ignorant bigots.

    I’m guessing the guy hasn’t been anywhere in Harlem any time in the past 15 or 20 years. The block Sylvia’s is on is gorgeous, and so is a lot of that area. There’s been a lot of rehabbing going on for decades, in a neighborhood that was never all that bad to begin with, just run-down and dirty.

  3. I’m guessing he has never had a black person in his home.

    Scary. Pathetic. Sad. Frightening.

  5. Wow. Just imagine that. There’s no difference. M-Fer ought to go uptown more often. Why, those people really know how to cook. (We white people are so strange. I am astonished at how total cluelessness must be a genetic white trait or something.)
