Rudy Giuliani was once the mayor of New York City for eight years, but now he’s basically just paid to be racist on TV.
In an appearance on CBS’ “Face The Nation” on Sunday, Giuliani weighed in on the high-profile fatal shootings of two black men—Alton Sterling and Philando Castile—this week that have sparked protests throughout the country, saying that black children have “a 99% chance” of killing each other.
Incidentally, those are about the same odds of Giuliani saying something racist about black people if you invite him to talk about Black Lives Matter on TV.
The freelance bigot clarified his claim by trotting out the tired and false narrative of “black-on-black” crime being the root cause of all violence against black people in America, saying, “The real danger to them, 99 out of 100 times, is other black kids who are going to kill them.” Given this fake statistic, Giuliani fails to grasp why black kids are even worried about cops in the first place.
Giuliani also called Black Lives Matter “inherently racist” and “anti-American.”
Unsurprisingly, Giuliani thinks the only police reform this country needs is a policy of “zero tolerance” toward anyone who disrespects police. Sounds violent.
