Hey Beyonce, what are you doing about black crime?
Predictably, the superstar singer turned the MTV Video Music Awards into a quasi Black Lives Matter rally and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani took direct aim at her for it on Monday.
First the singing star walked the red carpet with the mothers of “police” shooting “victims,” Trayvon Martin (shot by a civilian after he assaulted him), Mike Brown (shot by police officer after he attacked him and reached for his gun), and Oscar Grant, who recieved justice when the officer who shot him was convicted of involuntary manslaughter.
But the “Single Ladies” singer didn’t stop there. Not by a long shot.
She took to the stage later in the night and gave a performance that would have brought a tear to the eye of any social justice warrior.
The star was surrounded on stage by dangers dressed as angels – because supposedly everyone shot by police was an angel – to perform a medley of songs from her hit album “Lemonade.”
Then each “angel” was shot and fell to the floor as the white lights that surrounded them turned blood-red.
Giuliani called her performance “a shame.”
“Her dancers were circling around her and one by one, they fell to the ground, and there were red lights underneath them. And that was supposed to symbolize cops killing black individuals,” “Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt told Giuliani.
“You’re asking the wrong person because I had five uncles who were police officers, two cousins who were, one who died in the line of duty. I ran the largest and best police department in the world, the New York City Police Department. And I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage by reducing crime and particularly homicide by 75 percent,” he replied.
“Maybe 4,000 or 5,000 were African-American young people who are alive today because of the policies I put in effect that weren’t in effect for 35 years. So if you’re going to do that, then you should symbolize why the police officers are in the neighborhoods and what are you going to go about it? To me it’s two easy answers: a much better education and good job, and what the heck have you done like in Baltimore, when they all stood in Baltimore,” he said. “I was sick when I saw all the politicians sitting, standing in Baltimore after the police situation and saying, nobody’s done anything for this community in 50 years. Well, that is a heck of a thing to say, because they’ve been in charge for 50 years. And they have failed the community. I didn’t fail Harlem. I turned Harlem around. I didn’t fail Bedford-Stuyvesant, I turned it around. Go there now. Go walk in Harlem. Then flash back to 25 years ago and go to Harlem before I was mayor, and one was a place where crime was rampant and no national stores and now there’s a thriving community in Harlem.”
