"The reason Trayvon Martin died is because he looked a certain way, and it wasn't based on skin color," O'Reilly told West on Friday. "If Trayvon Martin had been wearing a jacket like you are and a tie, Mr. West, this evening, I don't think George Zimmerman would've had any problem. But he was wearing a hoodie, and he looked a certain way, and that way is how gangstas look. And therefore he got attention."

--Bill O'Reilly to Allen West on Friday's "O'Reilly Factor."
