(This post is the extended free-write of the article originally posted on HelloBeautiful.com on February 20, 2014 as Is Rudy Giuliani A Modern Day Racist Who Doesn’t Know It?)
Rudolph Giuliani’s hot off the press comments about President Barack Obama proved the politician to be a delusional racist. While speaking in front of a New York fundraising crowd, he tried to deliver poignant commentary on Obama’s apparent lack of patriotism but instead lit a fluorescent lightbulb under his Cheshire cat smile and ineloquently stated: “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country.”
Such hateful words from the former Mayor of New York are the complete opposite of the “United We Stand” mantra his reprehensible reputation, back in September 2001, was salvaged by. Instead of withholding a level of common decency when discussing the President so publicly, his recent behavior issues him VIP status to the “I’m Not Racist But Say Racist Things” club. The type of person that still doesn’t believe a Black people can be well-spoken. The type of person that makes such passive aggressive statements towards people of other ethnicities, cultures, and lifestyles, we’re beginning to wonder how Giuliani was raised. He’s 70 years old. He earned his Americana badge during one of the most tragic eras of the United States. The relics of a man who stood for New York bravery was nowhere to be found in those inflammatory comments and in fact has become more of a shadow of “America’s Mayor” for the last seven years.
A sea of complaints galloped his way the next day, since anyone with reading comprehension could feel the racist undertone of his comments. But his farcical outlook worsened when during a New York Times interview, he objected the notion of practicing racism due to the following reasons. “Some people thought it was racist — I thought that was a joke, since he was brought up by a white mother, a white grandfather, went to white schools, and most of this he learned from white people. This isn’t racism. This is socialism or possibly anti-colonialism.” Anti-colonialism? There’s a reason why the founding fathers had a revolution. And then, how can you make further statements like these, “You should be able to comment about the president of the United States without being accused of racism when you disagree with him” when your previous explanation was because Obama was primarily raised by the White side of his lineage? So Black or families of color teach their children to hate America? What are you talking about?
Giuliani, who ran for the Republican ticket in 2008 was rejected by his own party, still wants to seen as a GOP team player in playing the same old song about Barack Obama. He’s held a grudge towards Obama since 2008, joining hotheads like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, always adamant to prove that he doesn’t deserve or could possibly be one of us, aka an American, in every sense of the word.
