DeBlasio Knocks Giuliani On Race: 'He Fundamentally Misunderstands The Reality' (video)

New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio (D) on Sunday dismissed former Mayor Rudy Giuliani's (R) remarks last week that the "responsibility is on the black community" to reduce the need for police presence.

"I think he fundamentally misunderstands the reality," DeBlasio said about Giuliani on ABC's "This Week." "We're trying to bring police and community together. There is a problem here. There is a rift here that has to be overcome,"

"You cannot look at the incident in Missouri, another incident in Cleveland, Ohio and another incident in New York City all happening in the space of weeks and act like there's not a problem," he continued. "There's something fundamental we have to get at here. And it's not going to be helped by accusing either the community or the police of having bad intention or not doing their job. In fact, I think everyone is trying to do their job."

1. "I think he fundamentally misunderstands the reality,"

So very true ... it is obvious, but I am glad DeBlasio said it!

2. sigh

I'm so glad DeBlasio is our NYC mayor and not Giuliani.

DeBlasio and his advisers are already implementing much-needed changes that Ferguson never even dreamed of.
