NYC Detectives Union President Asks Beyonce: Why Is Most Violence On Blacks Perpetrated By Other Blacks?

At SuperBowl 50, singer Beyonce chose to perform a song that appeared to reference and applaud the Black Lives Matter movement. On Sunday, New York City’s AM 970 host John Catsimatidis spoke with NYC Detectives’ Endowment Association President Michael Palladino on “The Cats Roundtable” about the performance. Palladino said:

“To me, all lives matter. Beyonce’s message about Black Lives Matter was misdirected. She should direct her message where it’s needed the most – and that’s in the ‘hood, because that’s where it all takes place.”

He continued, “The perpetrators of crime and violence against people of color, they’re not cops. The perpetrators of crime and violence against people of color are other people of color. So, if the Black Lives Matter movement really wants to make a difference, they should pour the medicine directly on the wound. Get into the ghetto, the hood; get to the bottom of why people of color prey on other people of color.”

Palladino asks Beyonce why no one in the Black Lives Matter movement are directing their attention to black on black violence.
