Giuliani On Blacks Killed By Police: ‘Statistics Don’t Mean Anything’
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was confronted by CNN’s Erin Burnett on the numbers of young black men killed by white cops.
He said the NYPD isn’t even majority-white and the thought of there being systemic racism within the department is “an outrageous lie.”
Burnett confronted Giuliani with some statistics about blacks being targeted by the police, but Giuliani dismissively said, “Statistics don’t tell you anything.” He wanted to know the specific circumstances of what these black individuals did to warrant them being shot down by cops.
He threw out a statistic of his own, that blacks commit a striking majority of murders. Burnett pushed back and they tussled a bit, with Burnett saying “if you are gonna play statistics that way…” and Giuliani responding, “You’re the one that brought up statistics.”
