WATCH: Giuliani Hits Back After Being Called 'White Supremacist'
Rudy Giuliani stopped by "Fox and Friends" this morning fresh off a heated confrontation on "Meet the Press" with MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson.
The former New York City mayor got into it with Dyson during a discussion about the expected grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri following the August killing of an unarmed black teen by a white police officer.
Giuliani argued that too much attention is being focused on violence by white police officers, adding that the critics of the police fail to discuss the problem of black-on-black crime.
He said the high crime rates are the reason why cities need to have such a heavy police presence.
Dyson pushed back that black-on-black crime is being punished.
“This is the defensive mechanism of white supremacy in your mind,” Dyson said.
Giuliani responded further this morning, asking why protesters in Ferguson don't demonstrate against black-on-black crime.
"The danger to a black child in America is not a white police officer. That's going to happen less than 1% of the time. The danger to a black child -- if it was my child, the danger is another black," said Giuliani.
"These [crime] numbers are overwhelming. When you look at this, it could make you cry," he said, recalling that New York reduced homicides by 65% when he was in office by bringing down the murder rate in the black community.
