O'Reilly and Omekongo hash it out

We love it when iReporters sound off on current events, because they always have something interesting to say, and we know they aren't afraid to make their opinions heard. But here's something we love even more: When they do it face-to-face!

 

Yesterday, iReport commentators W.J. O'Reilly and Omekongo Dibinga did just that when they sat down in Alexandria, Virginia, for a confab that touched on politics, First Lady Michelle Obama, and why supermodel Gisele Bundchen may have been the downfall of the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.

 

Watch some excerpts from their discussion below:


"African-American" no longer the preferred nomenclature

 

Why partisan politics won't let us be inspired by Eastwood ad

 

Hope for American schools hinges on teacher attitudes

 

If you're aching to get in on the fun, here's your golden ticket: Join in the discussion. Or, better yet, make like Omekongo and O'Reilly and meet up with an iReporter in your town, chat it up, and post a video on iReport! But if you feel passionately about any of the points made by these fine gents, don't wait: Sound off below in the comments section.

Nice job, Guys..interesting discussions..especially on Eastwood's ad..I saw the inspirational value in that..but maybe republicans are seeing the ring slipping away and consequently are defensive..too bad..American people suffer as they fight for their party's ideology rather than what's best for the middle class..thanks

I believe America is rapidly becoming the land of the fee, home of the grave. Wealthy Corporate Greed Mongers are allowed to dictate what is law for a society where 99% of the people have little access and NO control over their Government.

The rich have the masses fooled and worried about the left and the right. So many people know what's going on, some are just more willing to deal with knowing than others. We need to take the country back.

I think the hope for our schools belongs with the parents and kids themselves.  Nobody can teach a bunch of rude, ignorant oafs mouthing off, cursing the teacher, and disrupting class for those who really want to learn.  Three strikes and you're out, Buckwheat... off to reform school where they can wear your smartpants butt out with a 3 foot paddle, and your worthless, stupid parents will have no say in it.
