Milwaukee’s tough-talking black sheriff, David Clarke, argued this week that white Americans have “made great strides” in healing race relations, and that sooner or later they’re going to grow tired of having their noses “rubbed in the past sins of slavery.”

“The inconvenient truth here is that too often times, disparately as a matter of fact, the perpetrators are young black males,” Sheriff Clarke told Fox News host Neil Cavuto, according to a video provided by The Daily Surge.

“That’s the discussion that we should be having in this country, instead of papering it over with things like targeting the police and cop bashing, which the president of the United States, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, and their cabal are doing right now so that they don’t really have to deal with the real issue in the country as it relates to crime, and it’s the disproportionate involvement by young black males,” he said.

The sheriff went on to say that those pushing “false” narratives such as “hands up, don’t shoot” and “black lives matter” aren’t going after the core of the issue because the cutesy slogans are “easier to peddle.”

“We have to talk about the violence and who the perpetrators are,” Sheriff Clarke said, arguing that many young black males have “no care whatsoever for their fellow man.”

He argued that the media need to “confront this ugly truth, and talk about it.”

“Don’t continue to use these very isolated incidents of police use of force and try to make it seem like that’s the problem in America. The police aren’t what’s wrong about America. The police are one of the last things that’s right about America,” Sheriff Clarke said.

“Look, we all know that race is an explosive issue in America, but I’ll tell you one thing that I think is going to start happening soon, Neil, and that’s white society is going to get tired of having their nose rubbed in the past sins of slavery. We know what it did. We know what happened in this country, but white society has made great strides in trying to right that wrong. That’s another narrative that’s not being peddled here. I think I’m living testament to the fact that this country has changed.”
