Giuliani: '93% of Blacks are Killed by Other Blacks'

Giuliani: '93% of Blacks are Killed by Other Blacks'

On Monday, November 24, Rudy Giuliani boasted in his comments on police shootings, saying that by greatly decreasing the rate of murders in the city while he office, he “saved more black lives than anyone.”

The former mayor told the NY Post, “I saved more black lives than anyone as mayor. Many black kids are alive with the policies I put in place with [first] Police Commissioner [Bill] Bratton. And they call me racist? I saved black lives.”

Giuliani said that the fall of New York City’s crime rates continued with his successor, Mike Bloomberg and police commissioner Ray Kelly.

On Sunday, November 23, during an appearance on “Meet the Press” with Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson, Giuliani shook the police-community relations boat by commenting on the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson at the hands of law enforcement’s firearm.

Giuliani escalated the argument, when he made the comment, which nearly went viral the second the words left his mouth, that “the white police officers wouldn’t be there if you weren’t killing each other.

Dyson reputed Giuliani’s statement, calling it a “defensive mechanism of the white supremacy at work in your mind, sir.”

The fiery debate on the issue began when Giuliani came out and said that “ninety-three percent of blacks in America are killed by other blacks. We’re talking about the exception here.” The implication of his comment was that the black-on-black crimes are far my popular than white-on-black crime, so attention should be on the former.

On Monday, November 24, Giuliani went back on the offensive after critics on social media dubbed him as a supporter of racial segregation. An outspoken opponent of the stop-frisk-policy enacted by the NYPD, Brooklyn City Councilman Jumaane Williams, said the Giuliani’s comments provocative.

“I’m ashamed a former mayor of New York City is putting fuel on the fire instead of talking in a way to address a tense situation,” Williams said.

Giuliani supported his statements by citing a statistic from a 2010 Bureau of Justice Statistics report which did, indeed, conclude that 93 percent of black homicide victims from 1980 through 2008 were killed by black offenders. This statistic was later repeated by Giuliani in a FOX News interview.
