Activist Hawk Newsome aimed a racial slur at New York City Mayor Eric Adams during a Thursday morning appearance on “America’s Newsroom.”
Newsome heads Black Lives Matter of Greater New York — which has no connection to the Black Lives Matter Global Network, according to managing director Kailee Scales — and he joined co-anchors Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino to discuss Adams’ comments about the crime that continues to plague his city.

Adams, during a recent speech, asked where all the people were who claimed that “black lives matter” when the black lives in question were the victims of crime rather than police.
