Rudy Giuliani, ‘The danger to a black child in the US is not a white police officer. It’s another black’

Rudy’s not backing down from his comments this weekend about black on black crime.

Rudy Giuliani is doubling down on his controversial comments about ‘black-on-black crime,’ saying he saved thousands of African American lives by cutting the murder rate during his tenure at New York’s mayor.

‘The danger to a black child in america is not a white police officer. That’s going to happen less than 1 percent of the time,’ he told Fox and Friends this morning.

‘The danger to a black child, if it was my child, is another black – 93 percent of the time it’s going to be another black.’

Giuliani is under fire for comments he made on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday during a heated argument about race and crime in America.

During a discussion about the protests over a white police officer shooting dead an unarmed black teen in Ferguson, Missouri, he told Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson: ‘White police officers wouldn’t be there if you weren’t killing each other.’

Dr Dyson, a frequent MSNBC contributor, called Giuliani a ‘white supremacist.’ Others quickly chimed in online to say that the 70-year-old’s comments were racist.

Giuliani is refusing to soften his stance. In an interview today on Fox News he said that by reducing the violent crime rate – and the number of African Americans being murdered in New York City – he did far more for the black community than black pundits and activists.

He further implied that Dr Dyson was a racist for focusing on the shooting in Ferguson and not ‘black-on-black crime.’
