Black Lives Matter Activist Demands Apology From Hillary Clinton: “I Am Not a Super-predator”

A Black Lives Matter activist interrupted presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during a Wednesday event to demand an apology from Clinton for calling black youth “super-predators”.

In a 1996 speech, Hillary Clinton described black youth as “super-predators” and added “we have to bring them to heel”, as her husband pushed ahead with the Southern Strategy of vilifying blacks.

“We want you to apologize for mass incarceration. I am not a ‘super-predator,’ Hillary Clinton. Will you apologize to black people for mass incarceration?” shouted Ashley Williams.

“Can I talk,” replied Clinton, who then called Williams “rude” for interrupting the event.

“Please explain it to us. You owe black people an apology,” Williams continued.

“You know what? Nobody’s ever asked me before,” Clinton answers. “You’re the first person to ask me, and I am happy to address it. But you are the first person to ask me.”

Clinton then continues making her speech as agents lead Williams out of the event. Now the hashtag #WeAreNotSuperpredators is trending.

The language Clinton used in 1996 was intentional. During this period, the Clintons were trying to secure white middle class voters by denigrating African-Americans. To ensure that whites had a negative view of blacks, crime can’t be viewed as a foundational issue that gives birth to poverty. This strategy requires that African-Americans be viewed as immoral degenerates.

If you take your dog for training at PetSmart, the trainer won’t even suggest that the animal be brought to heel. You’re considered a pet parent. Still, Hillary Clinton thought it appropriate to use this language to describe black youth.

Hillary Clinton’s comments can be viewed as part of an orchestrated plan alongside Bill Clinton’s flying back to Arkansas to execute a black man with an IQ of 70 during the first presidential campaign. In the book “No One Left to Lie To” written by the late Christopher Hitchens, Hitchens described how Clinton used the Southern Strategy to get elected:

In the 1992 run for the Democratic nomination, that strategy became plain for anyone willing to see it. Clinton took care to have himself photographed at an all white golf club, and also standing at a prison farm photo-op, wearing his shades in the sunshine while a crowd of uniformed black convicts broke rocks in the sun.

This was an effort to to dis-identify with black issues and black people. Bill Clinton wanted to win back white Reagan Democrats, so in order to beat Republicans, he became one.

This is what she should get everywhere she shows her racist face. It's amazing, a full-fledged racist, Hillary Clinton, is depending on Black people to win the nomination for her. The demographic that her policies have harmed the most.

Many of her 'bought-and-paid -for'  establishment Blacks have recently begun to fatuously claim that she wasn't the president, her husband was. Therefore, they argue, for their pork-chop fees, she can't be held responsible. But this video clearly proves what informed people have been saying all along: not only was she hailed in the media of the 1990s as the "co-president" -- given her well noted influence on policy formation-- but she was the ambassador for mass incarceration of Blacks. Not "minorities," but Blacks.

What the Clintons did to Blacks with their "mass incarceration" policies still negatively impacts Blacks to this very day, and will have devastating effects on Blacks for decades to come. Children whose parents are, or have been, incarcerated suffer in many psychosocial developmental and social adjustment ways  as a result of this traumatic experience (stressful life event). Some of these include: low self-esteem; low school engagement (including problems in school); high-probability of alcohol and substance abuse, high risk for gang involvement, etc., etc. Many "troubled" youths today, parents were either locked-up by the Clintons, or locked-up via policies implemented by the Clintons and their Negro helpers.

The same Negro helpers who today are lying for her in order to get her elected so she can lock-up more Blacks. Locking-up Blacks to provide prison economy jobs for whites is the only policy option. As the Clintons see it, Blacks are a "disposable" population. With her neoliberal servitude to Wall-Street and the NAFTA like trade deals --TPP, etc., which she claims to no longer support, until elected -- there will be fewer jobs for Blacks than there are now. Moreover, she is highly vested in the private prison industry.

Moreover, they made it so that even after serving their prison time, Blacks could never get a job.

Yet thousands, if not millions, of Blacks, uninformed, and, frankly ignorant and / or under the mesmerized spells of slick-talking Black con-artists stand ready to support her -- support their own abuse and demise.

Ignorant of polling data, many believe that she is the only one to stop the dreaded GOP. When in fact, polls show that Sanders will fare much better than her in a general election against the GOP. She loses to them all, while he beats them all. She, not he,  is "unelectable" in the general election.

She panders and wraps herself in false praise of President Obama (who every knowledgeable person knows she can't stand) . This she does, despite, as I have stated before, she was the first to falsely claim in 2008 that he was a "Muslim" and "not born in America." This was long before the Tea Party started making such racist claims. ("How Can Blacks People Trust Hillary Clinton After The 2008 Campaign?" James Rucker, HuffPost News, 2/25/16.)
