Yet another explosive video from Michael Bloomberg’s past is making a case that he is an outright racist.
Bloomberg’s comments in the video should end his campaign today, but I am pretty sure Democrats will figure out a way to spin this.
Blatantly Racist Comments
The interview in question was conducted in 2011.
Bloomberg was speaking to PBS about a massive initiative that New York City was taking part in to help minorities in the workplace.
This should have been something Bloomberg could point to in future years to say how he had helped minorities but instead, he comes off as racist by saying minorities “don’t know how to behave in the workplace” and that most of them “don’t have any prospects.”
That was far from the only disparaging remarks Bloomberg stated.
Here is another outtake from the video…
“Well, for a long time, people have said there’s nothing you can do about it, but blacks and Latinos score terribly in school testing compared to whites and Asians.
“If you look at our jails, it’s predominantly minorities.
“If you look at where crime takes place, it’s in minority neighborhoods.
“If you look at who the victims and the perpetrators are, it’s virtually all minorities.
“This is something that has gone on for a long time.
“I assume it’s prevalent elsewhere but it’s certainly true in New York City.
“And for many, many years, people said there’s just nothing you can do about it.”
Then he dropped the bomb, stating, “Nevertheless, there’s this enormous cohort of black and Latino males, age, let’s say, 16 to 25, that don’t have jobs, don’t have any prospects, don’t know how to find jobs, don’t know what their skill sets are, don’t know how to behave in the workplace where they have to work collaboratively and collectively.”
I honestly don’t know how he can recover from something like this.
I can say for sure, if Trump said these words, it would be all over for him.
Instead, the party that is accusing Trump of being a racist has one on their primary ticket that many mainstream Democrats, including minorities, are getting behind.
