Rudy Giuliani Goes Balls-Out Racist On Meet The Press

Rudy Giuliani Goes Balls-Out Racist On Meet The Press

 

The decision by Governor Jay Nixon (D-MO) to declare a state of emergency in his state ahead of the grand jury decision in the killing of Michael Brown has been a hot topic this week, and resulted in a very clarifying moment on NBC’s Meet The Press Sunday morning. In discussing cities with disproportionately white police forces, giuliani decided to change the subject to, what else, so-called “black-on-black crime,” a favorite hobby horse of police apologists, but one which is usually played for concern-trolling effect. Not this time.

Giuliani brought up the statistic that 93% of black homicide victims are killed by black people, and wondered why this doesn’t sufficiently distract people from caring when cops kill unarmed black people. “I would like to see the attention paid to that that you are paying to this, and the solutions so to that,” Giuliani said.

Panelist and Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson quickly pointed out the false equivalence at work there, given that “most black people who commit crimes against black people go to jail,” and that  “they are not sworn by the police department as a agent of the state to uphold the law.”

That’s when Giuliani, straining to get his racist words in edgewise, explicitly exposed the white police state’s philosophy: that black communities, that black people, are inherently criminal.

Giuliani: “It’s the reason for the heavy police presence in the black community.”

Dyson: “The police presence cannot make a distinction between those who are criminals, and those who call the police to stop the criminals.”

Giuliani: “What about the poor black child killed by another black child? Why aren’t you protesting?”

Dyson: “I do protest, I’m a minister. They go to jail. Why don’t you talk about the way in which white policemen have undercut the abilities of Americans to live?”

Giuliani: “So why don’t you cut it down so so many white police officers don’t have to be in black areas? I put white police officers…”

Giuliani: “How about 70 do 75% of the crime in my city takes place in black cities?”

Dyson: “How about your attitude reinforces the problematic perspective that prevails in the culture?”

Giuliani: “How about you reduce crime? The white polive officers won’t be there if you weren’t killing each other.

Holy shit. There are almost too many racist white policing tropes to unpack there, but let’s begin with the most glaringly racist thing that Giuliani said, which is that Michael Eric Dyson, who has never killed anyone as far as I know, needs to stop killing so many people. Obviously, when Giuliani uses the word “you,” he means it in the plural “you black people” sense, but by saying it to Dyson, he illustrates the absurdity of the police mindset that has them “reasonably suspecting” nine innocent black men out of every ten, for example, or gunning them down for holding toys. To Giuliani and his ilk, black people aren’t being killed by criminals, they are killing each other, so the cops aren’t there to protect black people, they are there to pacify a population that is killing each other.

Now, there are some in the racism as “realism” community who will say “Buthe’s not being racist, he’s just speaking uncomfortable truths. The STATS! They are killing each  other.”

The funny thing about that statistic, though, is that it comes from a report by the Bureau of Justice Statistics that says this in the very same sentence:

About 93% of black homicide victims and 85% of white victims in single victim and single offender homicides were murdered by someone of their race.

Well, what do you know. So, do white people also need to “stop killing each other,” too? For Whatever Reason™, people like Giuliani look at those stats and see black people as the threat, but not white people. The unfortunate thing is that it is becoming ever more acceptable to share this view in polite company. If there is a silver lining, it is that Giuliani has just helpfully decoded the thinking behind Governor Nixon’s controversial decision.

He's a dick period, but he is just parroting what so many in this nation already think.  That black folks are a bunch of violent thugs hellbent on killing not only each other but all the damn white folks.  The ones that talk shit about us, think they know everything there is to know about us, and erroneously assume that we don't care about violence within our community because we care about situations like the police shooting unarmed individuals.  They erroneously assume that we don't care about our kids falling victim to violence, they don't see the protests because they don't give a damn, they don't see the town halls, because they don't give a damn, and they don't see how hard we work in our communities to set up programs and initiatives to help our community, because they don't give a damn.  Far too busy throwing up that "black on black" shit as though most whites aren't killed by other white folks.  Too busy throwing up that "black on black" shit as though that someone takes away from the shooting of unarmed black men, women, and children by police, neighborhood watch fellers, etc.  We can't care about those because black folks also kill other black folks, much like those of any other racial group, they generally kill those within their own race.  But everyone else isn't seen as threats, we are.  Black people are, and have always been seen as the lowest motherfuckers in this nation.  That ain't changing.  

Shit, fuck it...no need to continue...he's an asshole, but what do I know?  I am just one of those uneducated, angry black women, who is raising her boys to be thugs who hate white people and the police.

Couldn't you at least find an offensive meme that was grammatically correct?

 What the hell does THAT mean? Spell it out.

 Is this some kind of "inside joke" or code?

Giuliani brought up the statistic that 93% of black homicide victims are killed by black people, and wondered why this doesn’t sufficiently distract people from caring when cops kill unarmed black people. “I would like to see the attention paid to that that you are paying to this, and the solutions so to that,” Giuliani said.

 

No political or cultural gain in addressing the black on black problem.

 Again, and 85% of white victims are killed by white people..when will you adress that?

and why are the super majority of police killings of unamred people BLACK people?

If what Rudy said was true, there would be an equal amount of dead white folks at the hands of white cops

there aren't

The COPS weren't in Ferguson because anyone was killed by a black person when they murdered an umarmed black teen

in fact, that was the first murder that town had seen that year...Wilson killing Brown

I caught part of it and heard a followup review on SiriusXM where they analyzed the numbers that Giuliani mentioned and he was correct even though numbers are racist.
