‘The white police officers wouldn’t be there if you weren’t killing each other’ –  Rudy Giuliani

NBC’s Meet the Press Became a battleground as the debate about white police officers targeting the Black community became heated and took a turn for the worse after former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani made a comment that exposed why racial tensions are currently at an all time high.

Giuliani shared the space with Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson, who brought Giuliani to task for insinuating that white police officers are forced into mostly Black neighborhoods because their mission is to prevent “Black people from killing each other”. But he didn’t stop there. He also praised past NYC mayors for doing all they could to ensure that the city’s law enforcement remained racially proportionate. But of course when you are dealing with unruly black people, only so much can be done to maintain law and order – this according to his jaw-dropping comment – “The fact is that I find it very disappointing that you’re not discussing the fact that 93% of Blacks are killed by other blacks. We are talking about the significant exemption here”.

A visibly frustrated Dyson then jumps in to put Giuliani in check, “Black people who kill people go to jail. White people who are policemen who kill Black people do not go to jail”. He then goes on to school Giuliani on the reality of living in a country that is currently embroiled in what can be considered – a race war.

But unfortunately you can’t overturn certain mentalities that are rooted in bigotry tendencies. Giuliani proved this when he retorted, “White police officers wouldn’t be there is you weren’t killing each other”.

Considering the former mayor’s intimate relationship with the NYPD during his term in office, his disturbing views validates the damaging practices still in place, as well as the racial bias that rages on.

    Glad to know that Giuliani is still a hateful little turd. I wonder if his children are still avoiding him like the plague?

    Is Giuliani suffering from some form of dementia? An Italian is accusing African Americans of being violent? Is he trying to tell some kind of crude joke?

    Who in American society has been more violent than Italians? How many gallons of Italian blood, shed by Italian criminals have been washed off the streets, and down sewers in NYC, Philly and Chicago?

    It’s “your people” who are the problem Giulani!

      Why do you call Rudy an Italian, not an Italian American, yet call Africans, African Americans? You a racist?

    • mdottwo

      I call them what they call themselves.
      ITALIANS in America CALL THEMSELVES ITALIANS!
      I am not in charge of what they call themselves!
      And what does race have to do with being Italian?

    • Ratcraft

      Rudy is an American….. not Italian. He was born here. So are you a racist?

    • mdottwo

      So you think we don’t know that Rudy Giuliani is American?
      You go tell Rudy he is not Italian.
      A racist toward what – Italians?
      You must be off your meds.
      End of conversation!

      He is Italian -American. Why do you goose steppers only hyphenate black people? Racist?

      They stay reaching for ways to call Blacks racist. First they need to know the definition of the word. Of course, I probably wouldnt bother if it wasnt necessary for my survival.
