#Ferguson: Rudy Giuliani and Michael Eric Dyson in a Fiery Throw Down

The entire nation is waiting for this afternoon’s press conference on the Grand Jury decision on whether or not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Here at Victory Girls we have documented the escalating tension not only in Ferguson, Missouri, but through the country.

On Sunday morning, NBC’s “Meet the Press” saw former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani take on Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson in a very heated throw down. Giuliani doubled down on his statements on Monday’s Fox & Friends.

Now I like Rudy Giuliani. I know he’s not as conservative as I would like, but I love his no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners attitude. And he didn’t fail to impress me as he told Dyson:

Ninety-three percent of blacks are killed by other blacks. I would like to see the attention paid to that that you are paying to this.


Dyson replied:

Black people who kill black people go to jail. White people who are policemen who kill black people do not go to jail.


Giuliani was unfazed:

What about the poor black child that was killed by another black child? Why aren’t you protesting that?… Why don’t you cut it down so that so many white police officers don’t have to be in black areas?

The Meet the Press segment was focused on the disproportionate number of white police officers in areas where there are large minority populations. Apparently black criminals will respond more favorably to black officers. Or something.

Of course the Twitterverse lit up, with the outraged calling Giuliani an “old, tired racist,” “far right wing celebrity,” a “racist,” and a “racist” (did I mention that they called him a “racist”?), all lending credence to a quote attributed to Socrates:


Those Twitter geniuses, along with Dyson, can sputter all they want. The dirty truth is that too many young black children, especially in urban areas, are damaged due to family instability and fatherlessness, and this leads to crime.

Bill Cosby — despite the ginormous scandal currently surrounding him — was correct in pointing this out. So is Juan Williams, who authored the book Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-End Movements, and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America–and What We Can Do About It. Both have received criticism from the race-baiters.

All this dysfunction has led to Ferguson. And it looks like Ferguson II may be emerging in the wings as well, with the shooting of a 12-year-old Cleveland boy who thought it was a good idea to point a toy gun — minus the orange tip — at police officers.

Buckle your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.
