African-American Journalist says “The Issue Here is Black Criminality, Not the Behavior of Cops”

Jason Riley is an accomplished journalist with the Wall Street Journal and on Tuesday he made some major waves with what may go down as the most Un-PC comment ever told.

Riley was on Fox News speaking with Megyn Kelly when he said,

“The issue here is black criminality, not the behavior of cops.” He went further and said that the homicide rate among African-Americans was also far too high and that it is the “leading cause of death for young black men.”
