Bill Oโ€™Reilly freaks out when asked: โ€˜How many black friends do you have?โ€™

Bill Oโ€™Reilly lost his patience with guest Kirsten Powers on Tuesday while accusing both her and liberals of unfairly painting the US as a racist country.

โ€œI have to wonder why you canโ€™t see whatโ€™s happening, because most Americans are not racist,โ€ the Factor host told her. โ€œTheyโ€™re not.โ€

โ€œSo how many black friends do you have?โ€ Powers asked. โ€œHow many black friends do you have?โ€

Oโ€™Reillyโ€™s hand could be heard slapping the desk before he said, โ€œIf you think most Americans are racist, Iโ€™m ashamed of you. Iโ€™m ashamed of you.โ€

โ€œIโ€™m asking you a serious question,โ€ Powers said. โ€œI didnโ€™t say most Americans were racist.โ€

โ€œYou just said it,โ€ he shot back.
