Black Lives Matter activist confronts Hillary Clinton: ‘I am not a Super-Predator’

I am not a super predatorBlack Lives Matter activist disrupted a private event featuring Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday and confronted her regarding her past support for policies that enabled mass incarceration, the Huffington Post reported.

Footage from the event shows Ashley Williams stand behind the former secretary of state and hold up a towel bearing the statement, “we have to bring them to heel,” a remark Clinton made in 1996 in support of the Violent Crime Control Act regarding gang members, who she also described as “super-predators.”

After Clinton turns around and reads the sign, Williams tells her, “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?”

“Can I talk?” Clinton replies, before continuing her speech as a Secret Service agent attempts to convince Williams to leave.

Event attendees can be heard behind Williams calling her “rude.” However, she continues to press Clinton, telling her, “Please explain it to us. You owe black people an apology.”

“You know what? Nobody’s ever asked me before,” Clinton responds as another agent takes Williams by the waist and leads her away. “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 resumes her speech as the agent leads Williams away.

Williams told the Post that she and a fellow activist contributed $500 in order to attend the private event in Charleston, South Carolina. The state’s Democratic primary is scheduled to be held on Friday.

“I wanted to bring her to confront her own words,” Williams said after the event. “We did this because we wanted to make sure that black people are paying attention to her record, and we want to know what Hillary we are getting.”

      A very good letter by Ashley Williams. Hillary as the white savior of the 21st century doesn’t fly. She needs to go away, she really does, she’s done enough damage.

      Capehart’s the ‘Caping” (PUN INTENTED) Negro to come to Hillary’s rescue, huh.

      URBAN DICTIONARY:

      Caping

      when you blindly defend someone, no matter how wrong they are.

      In his argument with Vetta, Larry kept saying, “don’t be mean to Susan.”

      “Why are you caping so hard for Susan, when you know she slapped my mom?” Vetta asks angrily.
      “Because she’s my friend.” Larry said.

    Cornel West: Black America Choosing Clinton ‘Confuses the Gravy Train With the Freedom Train’

    by Sam Reisman | 11:01 pm, February 24th, 2016

    West explained that Sanders’s social progressivism should have made him a much more attractive candidate than Clinton, whom he blasted for her ties to Wall Street, her husband’s policies that led to mass incarceration of African-Americans, her connections to lobbyists for private prisons, and remarks she made in 1996, in which she referred to urban youth as “super-predators” with “no conscience and no empathy.”

      We know that Hillary isn’t going to APOLOGIZE for SHIT.

      She could be sitting on a toilet, pop out a big pile of funky shit, lift her pasty ass off the seat, stare at it and say: I didn’t take a shit in this toilet.
