On Meet the Press the whole world witness what Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City really thought about the black communities when he was asked about the disproportionate ratio of white to black police officers in the many police departments of America.

Instead of addressing the issue, Giuliani began to blame the Black community for why so many white officers are present. As many racist usually do, Mr. Giuliani address the issue of Black on Black crime and because of Black on Black crime this is why so many White officers are in the Black community.

Dr. Michael Eric Dyson responded to Giuliani by saying that Black people who kill Black people go to jail. But White Police Officers that kill Black people do not go to jail.

“What Giuliani tired to do was give justification of White police officers shooting and killing black people unjustly”, said Damon K. Jones, New York Representative of Blacks in Law Enforcement of America.

As a former Mayor and US Attorney, Mr. Giuliani is absent of the facts. The fact of the matter is, according to the FBI’s most recent homicide statistics, is that the United States  83 percent of white murder victims are killed by other whites.

Statistics show that white people in the United States murder each other at a higher rate than many other high-populated White countries. There are many countries full of white people — Norway, Iceland, France, Denmark, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom — where white people murder each other at a much lower rate than you see here in the United States.

In many cases in the communities of color, we see that poverty, lack good education, employment could lead to crime and violence in the black communities.

Unfortunately, you can’t use these factors in the rise of White on White crime. Per capita GDP is considerably higher here than in France — and the white population in America is considerably richer than the national average — and yet there are a higher murder rate.

“You do not find Black People going inside of movie theaters, schools or office buildings killing masses of people but they have never called it “White on White” crime; they call it a tragedy”, said  Jones.

Guiliani’s comments on Meet The Press is indicative of the attitude or mindframe that has created the atmosphere to the frequent acts of police criminality in our communities in Westchester County and nationwide. While he isn’t in the minority in his thinking, as when he held the office of Mayor of NYC, he always has spoken freely, unapologetically without fear of much push back.

While BLEA’s Jones and a few others have been vocal on this matter, too many of our black law enforcement officers and officials as well as black elected officials and civic leaders remain silent. Whether out of fear or repercussions of retaliations for speak up, the silence from our leaders, allows the Guilianis of the world to do and say whatever they feel as far as policing and dealing with our communities.

“This shows that politics plays a big role in how our communities are policed,” said Jones, “any Mayor or elected official with a mindset like Giuliani spells disaster for police and community relations. And as Black people are concerned, that just what it was, a disaster, under the Guiliani administration.”

Some idiot named democrats and republicans wrong. Republicans are wealth preservationist, and Democrats are humanitarians. Democrats care about helping the less fortunate. Republicans only care about cutting out the 3% that the government spends on welfare and disability. They don’t seem to mine the $235.00 per hour that our do nothing congress gets paid. They are also OK with billions of dollars given to countries that hate us.

There are several racist scumbags with loud mouths. Giuliana, Dick Cheney, Joe Scarborough, Rush limbaugh,
Bill O’reilly, Ted Cruz, and others. If America wants to get to the bottom of what these republican scumbags are all about, ask to see the confiscated films of what hit the pentagon on 09/11/2001 and who was killed. Ask why building 7 was demolished. Ask why policeman and government officials are immune to prosecution. Ask what really happened to Deborah Palfrey and what did she know. These are unanswered questions that keeps numerous Americans ignorant. The true answers to these questions are posted on you tube. See for yourself.

This is the answer that is always given by the white power managers when this subject comes up. THE mayor is no different from the average white that fells like blacks have to be policed by them to exist. Like blacks need to be policed by whites. What i mourn over is the fact ,that there are black people who still think that they can beat the system., When ifn fact they no nothing about the system period. That is my peoples cross to bare. Before Europeans came to these shores they discriminated against each other. When you own the land and what’s on the land you are the boss. Our upper-class in this nation and the world are deeply entrenched in this code. Believe it or not.

How is it possible we allow people who think (Giuliani) like this to control our lives?
That’s not the results of democracy. It’s the result of stupidity.

Wow. His tone was as shocking as his words. Audacious. Condescending. Arrogant. Inconsiderate. Shameful.

He’s an idiot if he really believes what is coming out of his own mouth. He became known for “big busts”, but in all honesty, he did his most damaging work by building his legal career on the unjust convictions handed to him by corrupt cops who operated with the same tactics as Louis Scarcella. His political career was a study in human rights violations, corruption, cronyism and incompetence, and his post-political run is a testimony to the legacy of injustice, racism and stumping for white supremacist tyranny, enforced by the type of violence and threat of violence we saw in Ferguson. He wholeheartedly supports the racist hegemony being carried out against non-whites held in the domestic colony, AmeriKKKa.
He is a horrible reptilian scumbag.

No problem; tell him to send black officers into white neighborhoods because of white on white crime! #thatwaseasy

That’s bull. Cause it’s the same percentage for white on white crime. I’m tired of that excuse.
