Earlier today when I saw the news story about former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani who called Black Lives Matter “inherently racist” and “anti-American” — and even incorrectly claiming that black children have “a 99% chance” of killing each other.I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry, or even laugh to the point of crying.
Appearing on CBS’ “Face The Nation” on Sunday, Giuliani had little to say about the deadly police shootings that sparked the Black Lives Matter movement and nationwide protests — including the one in Dallas that was ambushed by a cop killer.
Instead, he said it is up to the “blacks” to show respect to police officers.
“If you want to deal with this on the black side, you’ve got to teach your children to be respectful to the police, and you’ve got to teach your children that the real danger to them is not the police,” Giuliani said.
Well I say, The former New York City mayor doesn’t know the first thing about the intersection of race and crime. As a mayor he built his career on scaring white New Yorkers with fears of black criminals, to the point where he can’t help himself. While at the same time. No one denies that black urban communities have experienced violence and more crime than their white counterparts in smaller or more upsale communities.
But Rudy, you are the last person whom we need to discuss the Chicago violence amongst the black community, because as I recall it was on your watch that Abner Louima, a Haitian was assaulted, brutalized and forcibly sodomized with a broken-off broom handle by officers of the New York City Police Department after being arrested outside a Brooklyn nightclub in 1997. You did absolutely nothing!
What about the well known Rudy Giuliani’s claim to modern greatness, during his time in office. When recalling September 11, 2001. In the wake of 9/11, Giuliani simultaneously rallied and eulogized the city through the most shocking calamity but simultaneously Giuliani exaggerated and whitewashed his own role in this event, as he would come to do about almost every aspect of his administration.
Oh Please let’s discuss, how Giuliani’s perceived success goes to the very heart of political mythmaking or even a Living lie-that we call Rudy Giuliani your behavior was considered to have made New York an “ungovernable” city. By the start of the last decade of the twentieth century, the number of murders in New York had surpassed 2,000 a year. Public drinking and drug use, fare beating in the subways, panhandling, graffiti homelessness, perennially filthy streets, rampant pornography and prostitution in the city’s Times Square center. NYC was a dirty city-Thanks, Rudy!
Lastly, we understand Giuliani’s pride for his own self with regards to your crime credentials as a former prosecutor. Why did the rebellious daughter of former law-and-order Mayor Rudolph Giuliani get busted for allegedly stealing makeup from an upscale beauty and skin care shop near her Upper East Side home in August of 2010 sources said she allegedly stole five items, worth about $100.
Finally, Let’s count Giuliani’s failed Presidential Run-in 2008 or when the media reported that while Mayor of New York, Giuliani had billed to obscure city agencies several tens of thousands of dollars of mayoral security expenses incurred while visiting Judith Nathan, with whom he was having an extramarital affair.
Hey Rudy, I can keep going in on you-but I like to end on a positive note, Let’s just say you are struggling to remain relevant and your timely rants get you immediate publicity. Do yourself a favor! Shut It Up!
PEACE and LOVE,
