Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called the Black Lives Matter movement racist and anti-American.
In an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Giuliani said the movement is “inherently racist.”
“They sing rap songs about killing police officers and they talk about killing police officers and yell it out at their rallies. And when you say black lives matter, that’s inherently racist,” the former New York City mayor said. “Black lives matter, white lives matter, Asian lives matter, Hispanic lives matter – that’s anti-American and it’s racist.”
Giuliani pointed a finger at the media for paying more attention to fatal police shootings of black men than when a black child gets killed in Chicago.
“Of course black lives matter, and they matter greatly, but when you focus in on the 1 percent of less than 1 percent of the murder that’s going on in America, and you make it a national thing and all of you in the media make it much bigger than the black kid who’s getting killed in Chicago every 14 hours, you create a disproportion,” Giuliani told “Face the Nation.” The police understand it and it puts a target on their back. Every cop in America will tell you that if you ask him.”

New York City begins a new era in nutritional warnings this week, when chain restaurants will have to start putting a special symbol on highly salty dishes.
The first-of-its-kind rule takes effect Tuesday. The Board of Healthapproved the new warning in September. It will require a salt-shaker emblem on some sandwiches, salads and other menu items that top the recommended daily limit of 2,300 milligrams — about a teaspoon — of sodium.
It’s the latest in a series of novel nutritional moves by the nation’s biggest city, and it comes as health advocates, federal regulators and some in the food industry are trying to get Americans to cut down on salt. Experts say most Americans consume too much of it, raising their risks of high blood pressure and heart problems
