Former White House aide Sebastian Gorka waded into racially charged waters in a TV interview Monday, opining on what he called “black African” gun crime in U.S. cities like Chicago.
“Our big issue is black African gun crime against black Africans. It is a tragedy. Go to Chicago,” Gorka said during a panel on “Guns in America” on the Sinclair-owned WJLA/News Channel 8.
“Go to the cities run by Democrats for 40 years, black young men are murdering each other by the bushel,” said Gorka, Breitbart’s former national security editor. “This is a social issue. Allow the police to do their jobs and rebuild those societies.”
Gorka later clarified that by “black Africans” he was talking about “African Americans.”
Gorka was once a regular across cable news, with frequent and combative appearances on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News.
Since his dismissal from the White House in August, he has faded — but not completely vanished — from the airwaves.
