A former Cincinnati mayor recently slammed Democrat-run cities for failing to take responsibility in black communities.
In an interview with Breitbart on Monday, Ken Blackwell said Democrats blame the violence in black communities on the “boogeyman of systemic racism.” He claimed Democrats have characterized America as a “racist nation,” which has created a “false narrative.”
Blackwell went on to say the deadly reality is black men and women are being slaughtered in several cities nationwide in numbers that can be compared to war zones in Iraq and Syria. These cities, he claimed, are all run by Democrats.
“You can’t paint safety forces with a broad brush, saying that they are riddled with systemic racism when the facts don’t bear that out,” Blackwell stated. “But what is out by the facts is that these local leaders have found some comfort in the status quo.”
Democrats have betrayed the public trust and made our major American cities less safe! Listen to my interview here with my friend @alexmarlow on Breitbart Radio: https://t.co/LDyjt49w30 @BreitbartNews @realDonaldTrump @GOPChairwoman @TimMurtaugh @BernardKerik @larryelder
