Mayor Eric Adams has branded Black Lives Matter “hypocrites” over their silence about the surging crime in New York City. The victims have increasingly been African Americans and the aggressors have been Black as well. Adams highlighted the outrage of the killing of George Floyd to strengthen his stance.
Hawk Newsome, leader of Black Lives Matter Greater NY, who had issues with the Mayor since before Adams was sworn in as Mayor said Adams is a “white man in Black face” during an appearance on FOX News.
The battle between the two doesn’t seem to be dying down anytime soon.
