Rudy Giulani's Shows His True Colors

Rudy Giuliani is justly taking a heap of justly deserved criticism for his comments on Meet the Press about race and crime today. In a discussion about Ferguson and the disproportionate number of white cops in neighborhoods with a large minority population, he complained that too much attention was being paid to the Michael Brown shooting. He rattled off statistics about black on black crime. When another guest on the show objected, he said:

“White police officers wouldn’t be there,” Giuliani said, “if you weren’t killing each other.”

    to be a trait of people who are identified as "conservative", that they consider it permissible to talk over and interrupt people with whom they are supposed to be having a discussion.

    I can't stand it.

    and Guiliani - coming out of the garbage bin to try for the White House in 2016.

    The pits.

    Of course underclass Afro-Americans engage in blue collar crime.

    A thinking person should not be surprised that the underclass black ghettos are hot beds of violent crime because they are also hot beds of extreme poverty. This is not having to do without luxuries poverty it is will we pay the electricity  bill or eat this week poverty or lets blow it all on crack poverty.  

    The only avenue open to urban Blacks to getting the resources they need is crime and it is not respectable crime, white collar crime involving the siphoning off of a few billions of someone else's money, no it is disgusting blue collar crime, robbing gas stations and convenience stores or engaging in the drug trade.

    Since drugs are illegal disputes related to the drug trade cannot be solved through the law, the only way a drug trafficker can avoid being ripped off by his suppliers or his customers is to project a credible aura of deadly menace and the effort to make it credible necessitates violence.

    Using mind altering substances is normal human behaviour and it is my belief that in themselves even the most demonized drugs such as heroin and cocaine are not terribly harmful, what makes them harmful is prohibition and the lucrative black markets that prohibition creates and the variations in strength that are of the same order of magnitude as the ratio between a fatal dose and an effective one. It is prohibition mandated by people like Rudy Guiliani that causes most of the violence and the rest can be attributed by white flight to the suburbs taking all the industries and jobs with them.
