Dear black people: Hillary Clinton really wants you to know that “Black Lives Matter,” but all those black guys in hoodies aren’t helping, because they are scaring all the white folk. Got it?
In a speech at Brookland Baptist Church in South Carolina on Thursday, Clinton told a crowd “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. And that’s why I think it is essential that we all stand up and say loudly and clearly, ‘Yes, black lives matter,’ and we all have a responsibility to face these hard truths of race and justice honestly and directly.”
Hillary’s admission isn’t exactly new or earth-shattering. It isn’t profound or insightful or even interesting. Most black men have experienced someone mistreating them or judging them because they perceive them as a criminal, and they don’t need Hillary Clinton telling them that. What is interesting is her idea that saying it will make people think she’s above all that. In actuality, by pawning that behavior off on other “open-minded white people,” everyone knows she’s afraid to admit it herself. Worst of all, everyone knows her statement is just shameless pandering for votes.
It is obvious the ease with which her husband could relate to the black community did not transfer to her. She’s trying way too hard to do her own version of Bill’s “I feel your pain.” No one is buying it, because she doesn’t have a shred of authenticity in her. She doesn’t seem like a caring, genuine person, and that’s scarier than any black man in a hoodie.
