Dare we hope that New York’s new Mayor means what he says? Watch what he does… not what he says.
A bloody night across the city left two dead and another ten shot, all of whom were black, in a wave of gun violence across the five boroughs.
‘Where are all those who stated “Black Lives Matter'”? the city’s second black mayor asked, speaking Wednesday on NY1 with Ruschell Boone.
Adams’ frustrated comments appeared to be an attack on progressives who have criticized his policies.
He added that those who protested police brutality in 2020 should do the same for the violence currently afflicting the city.
‘If black lives matter, then the thousand of people I saw on the street when Floyd was murdered should be on the street right now.’
The former police captain continued, ‘The lives of these black children that are dying every night matter. We can’t be hypocrites.’
