Rudy Giuliani, Asshole of the Day for December 1, 2014

Rudy Giuliani just won’t shut up. A week ago he pulled out the “black on black crime” mantra, as a way to deflect attention from police shootings, for which he was justifiably mocked. But he didn’t stop there. Yesterday he was on Fox News telling people that, sure police could do a better job, but it’s mostly African American’s fault:

Responding to a grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for killing 18-year-old Michael Brown, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday that the black community is more responsible for the deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of police than the officers themselves.

“I do believe that there is more interaction and more unfair interaction between police officers, white and black,” he admitted during an appearance on Fox News Sunday. “But I think just as much, if not more, responsibility is on the black community to reduce the reason why the police officers are assigned in such large numbers to the black community. It’s because blacks commit murder eight times more per capita than any other group in our society.

More responsibility is on the black community to reduce crime than on the police. It sounds fine, and I’m sure it makes perfect sense to the viewers on Fox News, or really any racist who wants to blame African Americans for their problems and excuse themselves and America at large for not doing anything.

But it’s bullshit, and here’s why:

  1. A white man living in an all white neighborhood isn’t responsible for stopping his white neighbors from murdering each other, or committing crimes generally.
  2. But, according to Giuliani, the “black community” is responsible for reducing crime committed by black people. So all blacks are responsible for any individual crime committed by a black person.

And that’s not a subtelty– that’s the whole argument that he and all the other “black on black crime” people are all making. Black people are responsible for other black people, but white people aren’t responsible for the actions of white people. That’s racism, plain and simple.

So, for applying a different standard of responsibility for crime for blacks than for whites, Rudy Giuliani is the Asshole of the Day.

It is Rudy Giuliani’s first time being named Asshole of the Day.
