The Daily GOP Ignominious: Rudy Giuliani "‘The danger to a black child… is another black’

Rudy Giuliani speaks to Fox News (screen grab)
Rudy Giuliani speaks to Fox News (screen grab)

Yesterday I published a piece with a segment from this past Sunday's Meet The Press (I.e, Chuck Todd's Personal Conservative hour). During a heated back and forth replete with copious over-talking, Rudy Guiliani and Michael Eric Dyson battled regarding Ferguson Missouri's "Killer Cop" Grand Jury proceeding. Here's a link to abbreviated clip of the segment (the full segment is is embed below).

 TPM                                                                                                          “Used with permission from the TPM websites, a service of TPM Media LLC.”                                                                                                                         
"It is the reason for the heavy police presence in the black community," he said. "White police officers won't be there if you weren't killing each other 70 percent of the time."                                                                                                                                                             Dyson  shot back at Giuliani and said, "this is a defense mechanism of white supremacy at work in your mind."                                                                                                                                                   Watch the clip via NBC:

Giuliani's crass comments were well beyond insensitive.  As I listened to the demagogue, I could not help, but recall his developing the likeness of Pat Buchanan. 

Yesterday I wrote about how Giuliani seemed to have lost his composure. He removed his glasses and his tone took a turn towards more confrontational words and non-verbal demeanor. A day later leads to more from the racist former mayor. I may have been generous regarding the former New York Mayor. References to the potential for racist rhetoric in yesterday's piece have been substantiated with a Giuliani "double down."

Giuliani , this morning, traipsed over to Fox News and completely fulfilled his assignment in feeding Fox News viewers. He sat with the perfect set of show hosts on Fox and Friends and spoke to the networks early morning viewers. People (Foxites) who watch a show that is by far the most ridiculous hosted news show on US television.
“The danger to a black child is not a white police officer,” he continued. “That’s going to happen less than 1 percent of the time. The danger to a black child — if it was my child — the danger is another black, 93 percent of the time they’re going to be killed by another black.”
There are only a few current event celebrities and news celebrities and talking heads who will opt to use the vernacular: "...another black." The infrequently used characterization of the black community is comparable to another and more common phrase from the Right: " people." It should be noted the phrase also emanates from some on the Left. I have heard Chris Matthews refer to the black people as "the blacks" as well as Donald Trumps famous use of the phrase. Matthews is, without question, far from a racist. Yet, he more than once has used the phrase when it is just as easily stated and fluid to say: "...the black people", or "black people." I posit references to the black community are comparable to language used by pre and post Civil War whites. Moreover, how often do you recall hearing a white person refer to people of color with one word monikers: "redskin", "buck", "squaw." There isn't any value in reciting more common extreme disparaging monikers frequently used by white supremacists. Yet, when the more commonly accepted media celebrities and pundits refer to African-American's as "the black" or "another black" the talking head should be called out.

Watch as Guiliani doubles-down with a very friendly crew on the Fox News couch.

Watch the video below from Fox News’s Fox & Friends, broadcast Nov. 24, 2014.
Black crime is an issue that needs exploring and remedial attention. But, Giuliani's use of "another black," was as disparaging as white supremacist use of the word "nigger." He knows full well Dyson cannot singularly remedy black death at the hands of other black people. Just as Giuliani cannot stop white murder perpetrated against other whites. Yet, he assumed that lofty 'white privilege' position by throwing what he probably felt was a nasty curve-ball to Dyson for the sake of winning an argument. Moreover, his universal defense of police who are proving to exercise abuse of power against young black people is astounding.

His spewing statistics regarding the tragedy of crime in the black community may work to 'salt' his argument for conservatives and the predominant Fox News white viewers, but his choice to "go there" is revealing. His comments clearly show why he was properly thwarted in his quest to sit in the Oval Office. The comments also show why his television appearances should be restricted to Fox News and feeding people who relish language vs. credible news and current event arguments.

Yesterday's piece included a link to a Tim Wise appearance on the MSNBC. If you did not visit the link, you should as a minimum, consider his remarks regarding "black on black" crime. Also know crime exists in a state of convenience and opportunity via close proximity , also people really do like birds flock in their own likeness. Any study of crime (killing and murder) will reveal data showing people perpetrate crime within their communities.

‘The danger to a black child… is another black’
