I guess this will probably totally destroy Hillary’s campaign, as the media will jump down her throat for her husband’s virulently racist statement that Black people commit crimes.
While campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia on Thursday, Bill Clinton defended his wife’s criminal justice platform against activists during a 15-minute exchange.
The protesters began shouting “black youth are not ‘super predators’” referring to language that Mrs Clinton used in 1996 to support her husband’s 1994 crime bill.
“I talked to a lot of African-American groups [in 1994],“ Mr Clinton shouted back. ”They thought black lives mattered. They said take this bill because our kids are being shot in the street by gangs. We had 13-year-old kids planning their own funerals.“
Mr Clinton also said that then-Senator Joe Biden advised him to add provisions that would give harsher prison sentences to offenders in order to gain Republican support. He also defended Mrs Clinton’s use of the word “super predators” to describe black youth.
“This is what’s the matter,” Mr Clinton said. “I don’t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out into the street to murder other African-American children. Maybe you thought they were good citizens, she didn’t. She didn’t. You are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter.”
