By Lavern Merriweather:
When young black female activist Ashley Williams had the guts, some might claim temerity, to confront Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton about her infamous “super predators” comment from 20 years ago, she was met with criticism from many white folks on several blogs. Typical that once a black person calls a white person to the carpet, they get attacked. Ashley was referred to as rude, loud and aggressive, their usual not-so-subtle code words for black women.
I saw the video myself, and not only was she not being rude, she was being a lot more respectful than those there to support Hillary. Some in the crowd hissed and booed because she dared to demand an apology from Hillary for her words and her husband Bill’s failed, RACIST policies, much of which led to the mass incarcerations of black males trapping them in a cycle of poverty and no proper resources to survive.
Before anybody trots out the ‘pull yourself up by your own bootstraps’ speech, I will remind them that Hillary grew up in Rogers Park, one of the wealthiest suburbs surrounding the Chicagoland area. So little Miss Hillary had butlers and maids pulling those straps for her, a far cry from the environment those kids that she called ‘predators’ came from I imagine.
Now, I’m not going to lie. I do feel that some of the ills we face in the black community are our own damn fault. And it is our responsibility to fix those problems. However, it does not in any way, shape or form help when the First Lady of the USA is using such inflammatory comments about black youth.
After her face off with Ms. Williams, Hillary behaved in predictable white people fashion. She was defensive and condescending as all get out, even calling Ashley “dear” at one point. Hillary used the same offensive, obvious tone that she did when she uttered that obnoxious phrase. True to form, Mrs. Pimpton (Clinton) later backed down by proclaiming that she regretted ever saying it and if she had to do it over again she wouldn’t say it. Well, no duh, bitch. You are running for fucking office!
For those of you upset that I just called a woman old enough to be my mother a bitch, please go kick rocks and cry me a damn river. I don’t give a rat’s ass if you are my elder. That does not guarantee you my respect, nor should it. I’ll tell you why. Hillary is 66 years-old. That means she was 46 when she made that remark. That also means she knew damn well what she meant and what audience it was meant for. If she felt so damn bad, why not make amends before she was opposed by activists?
Ashley is not the only young, black woman to speak out against Hillary to her face, and I hope she won’t be the last. Hillary needs to know – straight up – that her ‘Missy Clinton on the plantation’ act didn’t work eight years ago, and it won’t work now. (At least not with me.) Hillary and her hubby can whine and cry all they want that they regret his bigoted policies and her berating the black community’s children. That don’t mean dick to me. I didn’t see her going to any black churches and organizations like the NAACP to speak ill of white youth. She never once made a demeaning statement about the packs of white male teen skinheads going on midnight “raids” to beat the shit out of anybody that they don’t like or deem inferior. Aren’t those fuckers running around in the dark of night looking for people to prey upon the same predators she spoke of? But to her, apparently they aren’t as bad as the black kids. Not at one time did Hillary ever vilify the white male teens killing their classmates in shootings rampages at towns like Paducah, Jonesboro and Columbine. Hillary can find fault and remark that young black kids (most likely boys) should be made to heel. Yet, white kids – according to her – should be allowed to run wild and free.
Some white male brats also bitched that Ashley didn’t let her finish or respond even though she had more than enough time to address what was being asked of her. Let’s get it right people, Hillary is not some precious flower blowing in the wind that needs a protective hand to wrap around her. She is a grown-ass woman that has been through this process previously. First with Bill, then by herself. So if she can’t deal with the slings and arrows of being questioned, too fucking bad. That whole ‘white women are delicate dainty creatures’ means nothing when she chose to become a part of an event where she will have to deal with unpleasant situations.
Another thing some jackass moaned was that she made her super predator comment 20 years ago, and we shouldn’t hold her accountable for what she said as a much younger person. As I stated already, Hillary was 46 when she coined the term “super predator”. So she gets no defense from me about her being young or that her husband was the President at the time. Big whoop. She was the one talking shit about black kids and she’s the one trying to be President today.
I find it funny that the same white folks who were gung-ho about her ass running by playing up that ‘I am woman hear me roar’ crap want to suddenly change their tune. You can’t have it both ways, white people, especially white women. If you scream for equality, then you should bear the firestorm that follows whatever you say or do, particularly when little black boys are being shot down by cops, because they are seen as those very predators she mentioned.
Her proclamation is coming back to bite her, as well it should. A new hastag called #whichHillary has sprung up all over the internet. I would imagine the same Hillary that was throwing poor black people under the bus two decades ago to appease white voters.
P.S. The fact that this heffa speaks highly of that racist bitch Margaret Sanger who founded Planned Parenthood speaks volumes to what kind of person Hillary truly is.
