• If A Republican Said What Hillary Said About Black Males, the Campaign Would Be OVER

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Thursday that even “open-minded” white people get nervous when they encounter a black male wearing a hoodie:

    Clinton previously used the same incendiary language.

    “For a lot of well-meaning, open-minded white people, the sight of a young black man in a hoodie still evokes a twinge of fear,” she said during speech in San Francisco last month.

    Clinton has been under fire from Black Lives Matter protesters.

    Clinton faced backlash last month after using the term “All Lives Matter,” instead of the specific term “Black Lives Matter” while speaking in Missouri.

    She said then Thursday, in an effort to appeal to the black protest movement, during her speech at South Carolina’s Brookland Baptist Church that “Black Lives Matter”

    “I think it is essential that we all stand up and say loudly and clearly, ‘Yes, black lives matter,’” Clinton said. “And we all have a responsibility to face these hard truths of race and justice honestly and directly.”
