BILL O'REILLY (HOST): On the Democrat side, Bernie Sanders must get black votes in order to compete with Hillary Clinton in South Carolina and Nevada. He started his campaign for those votes last night.
O'REILLY: Well, Sanders says he is a straight talker but not, not on this issue. Here's the truth. African-Americans make up 13 percent of the total population in the U.S.A. but commit 37 percent of all murders. And 90 percent of black murder victims are killed by other blacks. You will never ever hear either Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton say that. Republican candidates will not likely point it out either because it's politically incorrect. It's much easier to decry racism than actually address the root causes of violent crime which are a corrosive culture and collapse of the traditional family.
