Rudy Giuliani on "Fox & Friends": Black Lives Matter "puts a target on the back of police"

Giuliani said BLM and the mainstream media add a racial spin to police shootings, ignore black-on-black violence

Former-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani joined Fox News' "Fox & Friends" to better flesh out his recent argument that the Black Lives Matter movement, "which never protests when every 14 hours somebody is killed in Chicago," is thus inherently racist.

"That is the predominant way in which a black person in this country will be killed. By another black, not by a police officer," he added. "If they meant black lives matter, they would be doing something about the way in which the vast majority of blacks are killed in America, which is by other blacks."

Giuliani admitted he understands "the other side of" the debate, but said major media outlets racialize the narrative.

"I don't mean not to talk about the other side of it," he explained. "But because the other side of it is the only thing that CBS, NBC, ABC, 'The New York Times,' 'The Daily News,' that's all they write about, the American people get a wrong impression and Black Lives Matter, therefore, puts a target on the back of police."
