First it was the “YASSS Hilary” t-shirts, and now she’s telling a Black audience in Missouri that “all lives matter”……?!?!
We’re not sure where Hilary is going with her campaign run for President of 2016.
Hillary Clinton on Tuesday told a crowd at a black church near where the police killing of an unarmed teen propelled the “Black Lives Matter” movement that “all lives matter.”
During a campaign stop minutes from where a white police officer fatally shot black teenager Michael Brown last summer, Clinton told a mostly African-American crowd at Christ the King United Church of Christ that “America’s struggles with race are far from finished.”
“We can’t hide from hard truths about race and justice,” she said. “We have to name them, own them, and change them.”
Clinton, running for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, was criticized last year for not immediately speaking about Brown’s killing. On Tuesday, she addressed racial inequity, the Confederate flag, forgiveness, and last week’s racially motivated massacre at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina.
She said her mother, abandoned by her parents and forced to work as a teenager, taught her the importance of “kindness along the way from someone who believed she mattered.
“All lives matter,” Clinton said.
The phrase garnered most of Twitter’s attention about her speech, much of it negative.
Are you offended by Hilary Clinton saying “all lives matter” near Ferguson? What do you think about her current campaign trail? Does Hilary2016 have your vote?
