What Giuliani said on Meet the Press was right. At least he had the guts to call it like it is. What? The former Mayor was lying?
In today's Nov. 26 NY Times' front page article "A Racial Divide Remains Over Views of Justice", a church pastor and black police officer, Brian Willingham of Flint, Michigan, was quoted [my emphasis]: "We have to be against a portion of BLACK CULTURE that has become increasingly ANTI-AUTHORITY and ANTI-SOCIAL to a point of self destruction...This is an ENEMY WE'VE YET TO ENGAGE in the black community. But it's a conversation I think we're forced to have now." (Did you see the Letterman show last night? He had on WuTang Clan: 5 slovenly-dressed idiots jumping up and down with microphones stuck in their noses. It reminded me of Vachel Lindsay's Poem "The Congo": Boom-lay, boom-lay, boom lay boom. THIS IS BLACK CULTURE?)
BTW. It's not a just black-white thing. You left out the yellows and browns, Asians and Hispanics. Akai Gurley was shot by an Asian policeman. George Zimmerman self-identified as being Hispanic. The Chinese man Mr. Kwok was pushed onto the tracks by a black. That black cigarillo thief in Ferguson manhandled an Indian clerk from the sub-continent. If a black criminal defendant in Florida sees that the "G's" are coming up in the jury pool, his lawyer urges him to take a bench trial. The G's: Gomez, Garcia, Gonzales. The media reports keep bleating "black vs. white". That's S-O-O-O 1950's. C'mon Chronicle get with the diversity program.
