Giuliani: Obama Said Same Thing About Black Crime as I Did, but I Was Called a Racist
Giuliani: Obama Said Same Thing about Black Crime as I Did, But I Was Called a Racist (Mediaite)
Former Gotham Mayor Rudy Giuliani thinks he got a bum rap when his comments last Sunday onMeet the Press, in which he said that white officers shooting black people was at least partially caused by the heavy police presence in minority community, blew up into accusations of racism, especially as President Barack Obama iterated the same point in his speech last night.
“I said the same thing the President of the United States said and I was accused of being a racist,” Giuliani told CNN’s New Day Tuesday morning. “The president said the minority communities are typically subject to more crime, they need law enforcement more than anybody else. When he said it, he wasn’t accused of being a racist. When I said it my adversaries said I was a racist.”
