Rudy Giuliani says, basically, it’s the fault of blacks that they are brutally treated, and killed, by police.


“I do believe that there is more interaction and more unfair interaction between police officers, white and black,” he admitted during an appearance on Fox News Sunday. “But I think just as much, if not more, responsibility is on the black community to reduce the reason why the police officers are assigned in such large numbers to the black community. It’s because blacks commit murder eight times more per capita than any other group in our society.”

Giuliani gave this answer in reaction to a Pew poll showing 70 percent of African Americans saying that they are treated less fairly by police. Only 37 percent of whites made the same complaint.

Last week, the former mayor made headlines for claiming that black-on-black crime was “the reason for the heavy police presence in the black community” and arguing that “the danger to a black child…is another black.”[su_center_ad]

    Did Rudy Giuliani join the KKK? He seems to be totally forgetting about the lack of opportunity and all those years of oppression that affected predominately black communities.

      Still is.

      Well said….. They ALL seem to forget THAT part..

    The one good thing about Giuliani’s “I hate black people” media tour, is that it allows the rest of the country to see what a real douche-bag this bastard is – which is something New Yorkers – living and dead ) (I refer to those who lost their lives on 9/11 due to his crass incompetence) have known for decades.

      I remember that as 9/11 was unfolding, he said “Thank god George W Bush is President!” …I thought, what an odd thing to say.

    Giuliani: “It’s because blacks commit murder eight times more per capita than any other group in our society.”

    Reality: “any given black person is 2.75 times as likely to be murdered by a white person as any given white person is to be murdered by an African American.”

    So, Giuliani, when are you going to start advocating for increased police presence to defend against white on black murder?

      Kick, the trailing “)” on your hyperlink creates a 404 page not found error (in Chrome at least). If removed, it’ll work, or just click here.

        Both for the tip (fixed) and for providing a working version. 🙂

    Right–it’s all their fault. If they’d just walk around with their hands in the air at all times saying “yessir nosir, three bags full sir” there would be no problem. And for women we have this floor-to ceiling black outfit with eyeholes. It’s time they took responsibility and kept men from raping them… (snark)

      I’m dubious about Giuliani’s ass-kissing proposal. If African Americans start behaving, well… white (:D) overnight, then how are they to get the message of having turned over a new leaf to the authoritarians? What I’m saying is, we need a feed-back loop of some kind to test the waters. Maybe cops can regularly line up the AA’s and hear it from their own mouths? “How we doing sir? Are we beahvin as you want?” are the only acceptable questions! /mega-S

      • M D Reese November 30th, 2014 at 5:59 pm

        I’m thinking maybe some sort of patches they could sew onto their clothing and paint on their doors? (Mega-mega snark…)

          See? You’re using your noggin! It’s just a question of efficiency!

            Shut your mouth! Next thing you know, the trains will be running on time!

    Is this loser contemplating a run for the WH, why else would he start spouting the teabagg meme of blacky is bad?

    Here is a poem that seems to fit right in here…

    If We Must Die

    By Claude McKay

    If we must die, let it not be like hogs

    Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot,

    While round us bark the mad and hungry dogs,

    Making their mock at our accursèd lot.

    If we must die, O let us nobly die,

    So that our precious blood may not be shed

    In vain; then even the monsters we defy

    Shall be constrained to honor us though dead!

    O kinsmen! we must meet the common foe!

    Though far outnumbered let us show us brave,

    And for their thousand blows deal one death-blow!

    What though before us lies the open grave?

    Like men we’ll face the murderous, cowardly pack,

    Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!
