De Blasio at White House: Ferguson crisis is reflection of ‘centuries of racism’

WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/AP) — Spurred by the Ferguson shooting and anti-police protests in New York and around the country, President Barack Obama on Monday announced new initiatives to bridge police mistrust.

As CBS2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer reported, Obama also met with his Cabinet, Mayor Bill de Blasio and other mayors, law enforcement officials, and faith and civil rights leaders at the White House.

De Blasio said it is time to end what he called centuries of racism.

“We need things that will start to change the dynamics right now,” de Blasio said at the White House.

Mayor de Blasio earlier said the president was right to convene a national discussion, WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb reported.

“We have a challenge right now that we have to face head on,” de Blasio said earlier Monday. “This country right now is in pain. We’ve lost so many young men of color; young men who should still be alive and with us today, and it’s calling at us. It’s calling at people of all backgrounds”…

I can just imagine how this ‘national discussion’ will go — blacks will scream ‘Racist!’ and never consider that they might be contributing to the problem.  

The culture of lower-class blacks is toxic.

    My toaster turns white bread brown, sometimes even black.

    So yes, it is racist, but a good racist.

    • It is a humanitarian toaster.

      • wallyj180

        That it is.
        I should apply for a gov’t grant to buy it some bread.

      Don’t eat the black stuff.

        I like the black toast with raspberry jam.

        it’s carcinogenic.

          Sorry, thought you were replying to David.

    “We’ve lost so many young men of color; young men who should still be alive and with us today, and it’s calling at us.”

    Lost? Is that the new euphemism for blacks killing blacks?

    Police (of all colors) kill less than 100 blacks a year, most of whom are armed and also trying to either kill the police, or innocent victims.
    92 percent of black homicide victims from 1980 through 2012 were killed by black offenders.

    • Bill de Blasio is already a known racist — he openly demonstrated his hatred for Indigenous and Black people many years ago. The “centuries of racism” of the past were in fact due to modern-day cowardly bigots like de Blasio.

      De Blasio was a Communist Sandinista supporter (, after the Sandinistas razed more than 66 Indian villages in Nicaragua and murdered thousands of Indigenous people. Mískito, Sumu, and Rama civilians were massacred in addition to Black Caribs, on the Atlantic Coast in the early 1980’s. Survivors were interned in concentration camps such as “Tasba Pri”, and many of the murdered were actually burned alive, buried alive, and a number of babies were drowned in the Coco River. Nicaraguan Indians and other minorities refer to it as an attempted “genocide” (I happen to know about it because I was there as an NGO documenting it).

      The last inkling of systemic racism in the U.S. pretty much disappeared in the 1960’s — meanwhile de Blasio was supporting racism 20 years later in places like Communist Nicaragua! But that’s because racism is okay with the Left, so long as it is being employed to establish Communist dictatorships.

    • A picture says a thousand words. Amen!

        Can you see anything there? I can’t and don’t know why.

      • wallyj180

        It is a photoshop.
        The original sign says ” everytime he leaves home”.

        • Frau Katze

          I thought so too.

          • Xavier

            I didn’t know that. But just because it’s Photoshopped doesn’t mean it’s not true! 😉

    • It should read “…every time a six-foot four 250 lb. Black man robs a store and ASSAULTS A LITTLE five-foot two 120 lb. ASIAN SHOPKEEPER”, the latter of which was clearly seen in the security video.

      Funny how the press didn’t report the obvious Black-on-Asian racism there. I wonder how many other people the dead thug assaulted and robbed but was NOT CAPTURED ON TAPE. And has anybody thought of looking deeper into the dead thug’s past? — e.g. unsolved past murders of Asian shopkeepers in the area of Ferguson?

    Re: Mayor Di Basio’s mind-numbing statements on racism.
    This type of sing-song,, boilerplate leftist talk will start to affect his Democratic voter base. Recall a couple of weeks ago, the CBC News’s idiotic “Racism in Canada” series, whereby 100% of all supposed racism came from whites, directed against non-whites. On the CBC News web page, nearly all comments were strongly anti-CBC,whereby people questioned why all of the racism had to come from whites. Needless to say,the tyranical CBC News closed down the comments in short order.

    • Petrilla

      Just like the National Post…when it comes to Muslim anything.

  • Icebow

    I weary of the word racist. It’s become effectively meaningless, even though it does have some meaning. Libtards corrupt meaning.

  • Solo712

    No, racism is not the biggest problem here.The problem is the existence of a nation-wide (and international) lynch mob screaming for the head of a police officer, screaming for “justice”, knowing full well that the damning evidence against him was obtained by perjury.

    • Petrilla

      Read Victor Davis Hanson on something like when the law becomes a drag. Soon comes anarchy.

  • Leftists are brainwashed by their own ideology.

    When young black males quit killing young black males, Jesse Jackson can walk down the street and not fear young black males.

    This is not a honky problem.

    • mobuyus

      On a windy day you can hear a leftists head whistle all the way to gaza.

    “Is your toaster racist? All white toasters are racist.”

    I don’t know: tell me! I have a bright yellow toaster. We had a bright yellow colour scheme of kitchen appliances some while back (don’t ask why …**) This is the only appliance that has survived.

    The colour (chrome yellow with a funny face bursting with perspiration) bares no resemblance to any skin colour known to man (except, possibly, someone dying from advanced liver failure).
    Is my toaster racist? If so, which race is it offending?

    * * Actually DO ask why. It’s because my wife wanted it and I’ve got enough sense to go along with it when my wife wants a particular colour scheme. It’s part of the give and take of a happy marriage.

    But the Cultural Marxists already have the situation WELL IN HAND and headed towards the extinction of the white race through population/cultural replacement, depriving white males of employment (thus preventing white families), abortion as birth control, massive immigration from mainly Third World countries and social programs that belittle maleness, male bonding, any all-male activities or societies and depict white males as the source of all societal ills. How soon before all white males are rounded up and sent to extermination camps?

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      ” How soon before all white males are rounded up and sent to extermination camps?”
      Oh, now you’re just getting a bit too carried … hang on … is that the door? …

      • Petrilla

        The one you need is to the right.

  • jayme

    If the left is serious fine that means no more special programs to help blacks get work then means no more get out of trouble free pass.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Good luck with *that*.

    Aren’t we already in a ‘post-racial” times, thanks to the anointed one?

    And yes, my whole kitchen screams racism… with the exception of the electrical cords, which are for some unknown reason, black.

  • crumbs


    Add one slice of brown indian (lower caste system) bread into toaster. Leave in for one minute. Presto!! You have black African toast. A little over cooked but just add some golden Nordic honey.

  • Exile1981

    I think my toaster is racist – It’s white and It take soft white bread and converts it into black charred items that are useless, maybe I should replace it with a different one?

    But don’t worry all the other appliances are black

    Spoken like the sock-puppet of a spiteful, racist, hideous black lesbian with no agenda beyond getting even with the crackers who shunned her in high school for being a spiteful racist hideous black lesbian he is.

    I have a BLACK and Decker toaster…

      Black and Deck Her? Ray Rice?

  • ntt1

    Sharpton has elbowed his way into the trough and that sets the tone for the whole sorry affair, the race baiters hear about the multi millions of tax dollars to be spent and just muscle in. This is a doomed discussion as it will just be guilt ridden liberal progressives like blasio being verbally flogged by scum like Sharpton.

    • Petrilla

      Will anything ever change? No.

  • Xavier

    13% of my appliances are racist. They’re black, don’t work but consume energy at great cost, and periodically cause other appliances to die and need replacing.
