A fundraiser for Dem Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton was interrupted last night after Black Lives Matter activists called her out for past statements many black Americans find offensive.
According to The Hill:
“Two Black Lives Matter activists on Wednesday night interrupted a Hillary Clinton fundraising event to ask her questions about past quotes on race.
“Hillary Clinton has a pattern of throwing the Black community under the bus when it serves her politically,” youth activist Ashley Williams said in a statement before the event in South Carolina, The Huffington Post reported.
“She called our boys ‘super-predators’ in ’96, then she race-baited when running against Obama in ’08, now she’s a lifelong civil rights activist. I just want to know which Hillary is running for President, the one from ’96, ’08, or the new Hillary?”
Williams told Huffington Post that she and another activist contributed $500 to attend the fundraiser. The event, at a private residence, had about 100 attendees.
As Clinton spoke in Charleston, S.C., Williams stood next to her holding a sign that read “We have to bring them to heel” — quoting a statement Clinton made in 1996 about at-risk youth.”
