I watched the video exchange and just couldn’t believe it. It wasn’t just Hillary’s condescension, but Huma’s patronizing smirk and her white press guy that interrupted the BLM reps with his tone dripping disdain. They are all the same.
They can barely muster any caring or respect for us and our issues even as they seek our vote and support, can you even begin to imagine their attitude and compounded hostility when they no longer need our votes – and if Hillary loses..?
The best measure of any person is how they’d treat you if they didn’t need anything from you, and frankly, there’s nothing about Hillary that’s positive or encouraging in that regard.
Even as she and Bill have over the years amassed a collection of mostly shallow opportunistic black elite types (and the willing and confused yoeman or two excited at the prospect of being acknowledged and allowed into the ‘circle’), for their mutual exploitation and benefit, and to help establish their diversity quota for their political advancement, truth is, Hillary still has no deep understanding, empathy or even regard for the black experience – or for black people for that matter. She drips condescension and disdain even when she isn’t feeling challenged by those she deems inferior – and especially when she does.
I was so incredibly impressed and proud of young BLM representative Alicia Garza as I watched her this afternoon calmly and intelligently articulate her points as she put flustered Clinton apologists and kiss-asses Angela Rye and Eric Dyson to shame.
let them come for you. you tell the truth, and they want you to apologize for it.
no…I don’t think so
this comment was brilliant, and thank you for frontpaging it.
It’s called white PATERNALISM
SHE”D BETTER START TALKING E-MAILS
Karen Finney’s a lap dog for Hillary.
I saw her come for Deray a few days ago.
SG2, you know the saying, ‘DON’T COME AT ME, UNLESS I SEND FOR YOU?
Well the PUMAs see your comments on Twitter about Hillary and think you sent for’em!
MFers coming at me already. LOL
It was only supposed to be a comment SG…Thank you…quite the honor..
It deserved to be front paged. The pleasure is all ours.
I’m reading your twitter timeline and I see they’re pulling out the ..but she worked for Marian Wright Edelman and she vouches for her… schtick;
I think so many people forget that carefully, consciously, selectively, manipulatively and aggressively nurturing and sustaining certain key relationships with an eye to ones future political aspirations, rise and advancement, is a must and basic –
These deliberate and plotted associations exploited to a hilt to burnish resumes as one rises politically, and to help argue and check-off ones bona fides to certain demographics, are not necessarily an indication of where ones true concerns, caring lie – nor are they a validation of character – or even sufficient fodder for legitimate or convincing argument for when one fails to live up to basic decency and deep, tangible caring for fellow human beings disadvantaged by race – beyond paying them occasional lip service…And no amount of name-dropping decent and respected black woman like Marian Edelman will ever change that.
“…Two high-ranking officials at the Department of Health and Human Services resigned yesterday in protest over President Clinton’s decision to sign the welfare bill, an unusually public move that underscores the deep divisions within the administration over the legislation.
Peter Edelman, acting assistant secretary for planning and evaluation, and Mary Jo Bane, assistant secretary for children and families, submitted their letters of resignation yesterday, both citing the welfare measure as the reason.
The resignations were notable not only because they represented open discontent with a president among his own appointees but because of the relative prominence of the two officials involved. Edelman and his wife, Children’s Defense Fund head Marian Wright Edelman, have had a close personal friendship with Bill and Hillary Clinton. And Bane has long been one of the country’s leading academics on welfare issues, as the author of books and research that have influenced thinking and policymaking on the subject…”
Your comment deserved to be FRONT-PAGED, eliihass. Thank you!
Thank you so much Ametia..
SG2, can we get that video of the show with BLM representative Alicia Garza, Angela Rye. and Eric Dyson?
Let me look for it.
they don’t think that we have the receipts for all that they said on the President these 6+ years….and think that they can just slide in and not hold Hillary to any kind of standard. NOPE.
These fools have written many a checks their asses can’t cash.
The truth, the whole Truth, and Nothing but the TRUTH.
It isn’t just the Black experience, it’s the way Hillary is with the human experience.
We’re talking ‘BLACK EXPERIENCE’ here.
FYI: Black folks aren’t even viewed as HUMAN, by some white folks.
