Sister Hillary Preaches the Word, and Nothing’s Sacred
The June 17 massacre of nine members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., by a white-supremacist gunman provided Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton the perfect opportunity to go stomping for black votes. She was not about to let a crisis go to waste.
Clinton on Tuesday appeared at Christ the King United Church of Christ in Florissant, Missouri, and to enthusiastic applause laid out her political vision and agenda for African Americans. Clinton’s speech was meant to convey her deep understanding of the issues affecting African Americans and her connection with this constituency, but as Leid Stories reveals, Clinton’s address confirmed the candidate’s own racism, the distorted views she has of people of color, and her sense of entitlement.
