Hillary Clinton was called out for her treatment of Black folks by none other than a founder of The Black Lives Matter movement, Alicia Garza. Garza claims that the Clintons are only using Black people to get votes.
After they win the elections they don’t follow through by helping the Black Communities.
During an interview with Josh Eidelson of Bloomberg, Garza explained how she felt about The Clintons.
“Has Hillary Clinton done or said anything… that’s surprised you?
Early on, she would say, “Yes, black lives matter,” but she wouldn’t acknowledge her role in processes that fundamentally showed black lives did not matter. She says that she is for economic justice, but she doesn’t support $15 an hour as the minimum wage.
After Bill Clinton told black protesters, “You are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter,” you wrote, “My back is tired of being the path to the White House.”
I was angry about that for about a month—seriously, like every single day. It’s reprehensible for him to defend the impacts his policies have had on our communities. The Clintons use black people for votes, but then don’t do anything for black communities after they’re elected. They use us for photo ops.
We’re not indebted to or endeared to the Democratic Party.”
But this is not the first time Hillary has treated minorities differently. She called gangs of kids who were primarily minorities “super-predators.”

But it’s not just what she called minorities, Hillary also talks down to minorities by simplifying her language and trying on accents during speeches to appear more familiar.
“According to new research by Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at Yale SOM, white liberals tend to downplay their own verbal competence in exchanges with racial minorities, compared to how other white Americans act in such exchanges.”
“The team found that Democratic candidates used fewer competence-related words in speeches delivered to mostly minority audiences than they did in speeches delivered to mostly white audiences. The difference wasn’t statistically significant in speeches by Republican candidates…”
“The researchers found that liberal individuals were less likely to use words that would make them appear highly competent when the person they were addressing was presumed to be black rather than white.”
So she has generalized black people, used them to get votes, talked down to them, and she doesn’t follow through with her promises. Gee, I wonder why she couldn’t get elected in 2016.
