“I also want to say that something that sets me apart from all my colleagues in this race is for the last 21 years I have been raising a black son in America,” De Blasio said. “And I have had to have very very serious talks with my son Dante about how to protect himself on the streets of our city and all over this country, including how to deal with the fact that he has to take special caution because there’ve been too many tragedies between our young men and our police…”

De Blasio began by commenting on how he runs “the largest police force in America.”
