Geraldo Rivera clashed with his The Five colleagues on Friday over – what else? Donald Trump’s comments about immigration. And I’d salute Rivera for it but the subtext of his argument was, “Blame the blacks instead.”
As part of his impassioned argument with cohosts Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld, Rivera cited the most dangerous cities in the U.S.: East St. Louis, Camden, Newark, Baltimore, Detroit, Trenton and New Orleans.
What they have in common, Rivera said, is “virtually no Latino population.”
Rivera could have left it there. But instead, he continued, “This is where your murders are coming from, not from this population, the vast majority of whom are hard-working, law-abiding, decent people.”
Rivera was probably more interested in defending Hispanics than incriminating African Americans but considering the kind of hostility he has shown toward African Americans in the past, one can see how he fits right in at Fox News despite this little disagreement over Hispanics.
Watch it below from the July 10 The Five.
So the problem isn’t Latinos, it’s failed policies, ignorance of self, achievement intimidation, and a list of many things causing problems in the Black communities and if I was Latino, I’d do exactly what they are doing to fill the space of those squandering away opportunities they could have taken. If I was a politician, I’d target those who may vote rather than those who are too pitiful to go and get a dang ID card to vote.
Welcome to America. Play the game out get lost.
If being “black at night” was outlawed then blacks would be criminals. Is it morally or ethically wrong? No. It’s legally wrong. Nothing more.
The same goes with many of the crimes that African Americans commit today. Many of these laws are for substance issues. They are for drugs. So here’s the thing, if we simply legalized drugs would there be so many black criminals?
Would we now be able to focus on violent crimes and say, “Blacks don’t commit as many violent crimes as any other race”? Just some food for thought to expand on Geraldo’s thoughts. Just because something is illegal doesn’t means the law itself is unjust.
Every time something big happens to bring out awareness about the worsening conditions for hispanics, it gets hijacked by something like the hands up don’t shoot riots.
I am sick. I am tired. If African Americans don’t speak up then they are against us and will have to deal with it when we begin to move into politics. We don’t forget. We won’t forget.
I have over a dozen black and mixed race cousins. I have over a dozen more white, non-hispanic, cousins. I love them all and they are treated worse because of their hybrid status. This has been a progressively worsening situation that is full on crisis – yet where are the marches? Where are the Jesse Jacksons and the Spike Lees? Why aren’t they standing with us? Instead they are worried about some dumb flag. Completely ignoring the rising tension and anti-hispanic sentiment. It’s so bad that american citizens are now being accused or being illegal because they are hispanic. NO one is coming to our aid and that is the worst thing African Americans can do.
