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,
Divided America: Please don’t compare the murder of Alton Sterling and others to the Police shootings in Dallas
As the headlines rage giving details to the recent Dallas Police shootings:
At least five police officers have been shot dead in the United States at protests over recent police killings of black men.’
Gunfire broke out late on this Thursday during an otherwise peaceful protest over two recent police killings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana . The sound of gunfire sent marchers running and police scrambling for cover.
The Dallas Police Department said on Twitter : “It has been a devastating night. We are sad to report a fifth officer has died.”
I for one pray that not one more person looses life, because the wicked act is no way an accepted course of action to remedy what many believe is huge governing failure on all parts of our society. This country (USA) has the highest incarceration rate in the world for blacks, and that’s failure.”
Not much time has been given to solving one of this country’s most diabolical challenges—the persistence of homicide in poor African-American communities “that’s a failure”.. The numbers are staggering. From 1980 to 2013, 262,000 black males were killed in America-“that’s a failure.” By contrast, roughly 58,000 Americans died in Vietnam “that’s a failure. For many years the killers of these men were, in the vast majority of cases, other African-American men.
I must say I disagree with the President this time-because I don’t believe that we should balance our remarks in this time by saying “Blue Lives Matter, or All Lives Matter”-this to me is an insult that supports a strategic cover up on some folks part-to dilute the issue. The issue is that it’s time to speak to the heart of the matter and address the change that is necessary to prevent more lives from being lost.
I was immediately disturbed when watching CNN coverage of the Dallas shootings, Anchor Brian Williams kept comparing the shootout in Dallas to the murders of young Black and Latino male attacks around the country and the world. This has to change, period
Justice can no longer be unbalanced and accepted because we will all lose, and no one wins this time. We all loose through blood sweat, and more tears.
Peace and Love,
Question: Are you willing to die for it?
Washington, DC is currently in the middle of Trump’s taco bowl diplomacy controversy-with Trump facing disapproval ratings north of 70% among Hispanic voters, Donald Trump reached out Thursday, with a fork. He tweeted a photo of himself at his desk in Trump Tower, smiling and giving a thumbs-up, with a taco bowl in front of him. “Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!” the tweet said. (pic, below)
“If Trump has the most delegates and they go with someone else, I’m out,” said Joe Geiger, a Trump supporter from Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Citing a study by Northwestern University psychologists Maureen Craig and Jennifer Richeson, Jamelle Bouie frets that white Americans who are Neocons will react to their future minority status with ever-more conservative leanings and angst, perhaps making the country’s future electorate as racially polarized. Here’s what the study found:
Using a nationally representative survey of self-identified politically “independent” whites, Craig and Richeson conducted three experiments. In the first, they asked respondents about the racial shift in California—if they had heard the state had become majority-minority. What they found was a significant shift toward Republican identification, which increased for those who lived closest to the West Coast.
Neocons represent a political movement born in the United States during the 1960s among Democrats who became disenchanted with the party’s domestic and especially foreign policy. Many of its adherents became politically famous during the Republican presidential administrations of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. Neoconservatives peaked in influence during the administrations of George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush, when they played a major role in promoting and planning the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Prominent neoconservatives in the George W. Bush administration included Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton Elliott Abrams, Richard Perle, and Paul Bremer. Senior officials Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. (below)
Classic American Errors Caused by Failings of Neoconservative Policy
1. False Premise for Going to Iraq War
2. 45 Million Americans Without Health Insurance
3. Controversial Assertion of Executive Power
4. Skyrocketing Deficit
5. Too close to the Edge on Torture
6. Politicization of the Department of Justice
7. No Robust, Sustained Alternative Energy Policy
8. Hurricane Katrina Exposed FEMA Woes
9. SEC Allows Investment Banks to Go Unregulated
10. No Child Left Behind: A Few Bumps in the Road
One has to wonder just how severe of a crisis will be posed to Republicans if Trump fails to claim the nomination. That’s because the Trump movement—risks alienating a motivated base of American supporters. If the G.O.P were smart then they should consider the “Browning of America,” and if the Trump Campaign were smart then they would do the same.
PEACE & LOVE, GLG
