Every day I learn or re-learn facts about Hillary Clinton that disgust me. I’ll use this post to share one.
In 1996, to prove her husband Bill was tough-on-crime, Hillary Clinton said: “These are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called super predators. No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”
Let me say it again. Hillary Clinton, currently running to be the Democratic Nominee for the President of the United States of America, called urban youth “super predators” with “no conscience, no empathy.” In Hillary Clinton’s view, urban youth are sociopaths.
Then she said to the general public that these kids’ histories don’t matter until the full force of the law is used to get them in line (“bring them to heel”).
I probably taught hundreds of kids Hillary Clinton would first have to “bring to heel” before she even got to know their names.
The fact that Hillary Clinton, as First Lady, said this extremely racist remark and now tries to champion herself a civil rights fighter is precisely why many Americans have given up on the political process.
This 18 second video proves that Hillary Clinton helped pass the Clinton crime bill that has criminalized the poor and ramped up prisons for profit. And all the way until October 2015, she accepted campaign contributions from prisons for profit.
Who does she represents? Certainly not American people.
But let’s end this post on a positive note.
We’re lucky that today, in 2016, politics doesn’t have to be the buzzkill that ruins the party.
This year we have a reason to celebrate because we have a true civil rights fighter running for the democratic nominee.
I cannot wait to come to SC and Bust Up The Hillary is our only choice myth. South Carolina Deserves a true Civil rights fighter. #Sanders

Bernie Sanders cares about people.
He is the rarest thing at this level in American politics because he is not corrupt.
He is both hope and change.
Bernie Sanders is on a mission to save our democracy from big money interests.
