Get a good look and listen up, while Hillary admonishes the NEGROES for daring to ask her the tough questions.
Clinton lobbied for a law that perpetuated mass incarceration.
The Clintons played a crucial role in mass incarceration. The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which Clinton lobbied for and her husband signed into law, imposed tougher prison sentences and increased funding for prisons, among other changes.
The law helped continue the explosive growth of the prison population through the 1990s. And yes, FORMER Bill Clinton tried to pre-empt this fact earlier by coming out and acknowledging it. The Clintons got game, and they’re being called out for it.
Hillary does not want to address BLACKLIVESMATTER head on, because WHAT WOULD THOSE ‘HARD WORKING WHITE FOLKS THINK?!!!!
It is all about CONSCIENCE/CONSICOUSNESS/HEART. You can talk about enforcing laws/policies all you like, but it all comes down to the consciousness and the heart of the folks who ENFORCE these laws and policies. Case in point: The Ferguson fuckery of the same people enforcing the same sick laws that profile, stop, and murder black men and women. Not one thing has changed since August 2014, other than the glaring racist injustices and continued killings around the country.
BlackLivesMatter does need to have a more cogent/strategic plan, and that much was exposed with this exchange.
This was SUSPECT from the very beginning. Since Hillary wants to run on Bill’s coattails, then we have the right to ask certain questions.
We are on our THIRD GENERATION of Black men for the Prison Industrial Complex.
One ‘ my bad’ in a speech from Bill DOES NOT CLEAN THAT UP.
What about sentencing reform, Hillary?
What about retroactive release for non-violent offenders?
What about the militarization of the police?
What about police accountability towards their brutality towards Black folk?
What about the bond system, which discriminates against the poor?
Yes, these are our sons, grandsons, nephews, daughters, sisters.
These questions are about the very lives of our families.
And, while I have issues with BLM…..they have the right to ask those questions.
EVERYBODY and his Mama has been yelling ‘ACCOUNTABILITY’ when it comes to President Obama…
but now, when it’s OTHER folks…suddenly, Black folks aren’t supposed to want people to be accountable to them?
The problem with Team Clinton, is that they don’t want to give President Obama credit for what he and his administration have done. They’re mad everytime they are forced to give him credit.
They could have said – we think the Justice Department has done as good a job as they could be doing, considering that they started from scratch. I’m going to take what this Justice Department has done, and I’m going to expand it these ways: list 5 concrete ways.
Fully own the destruction of Bill Clinton’s cravenness with regards to the Prison Industrial complex, and have 5-10 concrete points where they will build upon what President Obama has done to try and clean up Bill Clinton’s Mess.
But, see, this would mean that they’d have to admit Bill Clinton’s culpability, and give President Obama credit for what he’s done.
And, Hillary’s not about either.
So, I hope BLM stays on her azz without fail, until she steps correct.
