Much of the protest following Saturday’s George Zimmerman not-guilty verdict is a “grievance industry,” Bill O’Reilly said.

Speaking Wednesday on Fox News' “Fox & Friends,” the conservative commentator said, “There is a grievance industry, and that industry is going to kick in whenever there is a minority controversy.”

“They're in business. That's what they do. That's how they get paid. Same thing with the liberal commentators and the mainstream media,” O’Reilly added.

O’Reilly claimed the NAACP and the black liberal establishment was interested in representing only one side of a story.

“They want blacks to be victims and to think that there is racism and they can't get ahead, and really it's a lie," he said. "They continue to push the same message of moving people back with the mindset and what they do versus moving people forward.”

O’Reilly also addressed remarks made Tuesday by Attorney General Eric Holder to the NAACP convention regarding stand-your-ground gun laws.

“He doesn't like the law,” O’Reilly said of the attorney general. “You know, Holder is more of an activist than a law-enforcement official," he said.
