  • No superpredator apology necessary from Clinton: James Alan Fox

    USA Today - 02/29/2016

    Black Lives Matter activist Ashley Williams crashed a private campaign fundraiser in Charleston, S.C., last week, demanding that Hillary Clinton answer for using the term “superpredators” in a 1996 speech. She blamed Clinton for demonizing black youth and for helping to push a racist policy agenda of mass incarceration.

    But nothing in Clinton’s remark was intended to produce either result. And her stellar performance among black voters in the South Carolina primary a few days later suggests they are not penalizing her for something she said 20 years ago.
