Hillary: Many Young Blacks ‘Taken Too Soon’

Hillary Clinton is a master at pandering for votes during times of tragedy. While Donald Trump secures the racist and xenophobic vote, Clinton is working hard to guarantee herself the African-American vote in 2016.

Speaking about the recent release of footage showing the brutal 2014 police shooting of Laquan McDonald, Clinton noted that African Americans were “taken too soon.”

“The family of Laquan McDonald and the people of Chicago deserve justice and accountability,” she said in a statement released Wednesday.

“All over America, there are police officers honorably doing their duty, demonstrating how to protect the public without resorting to unnecessary force,” Clinton continued. “We need to learn from and build on those examples.

“The loss of so many young African-Americans taken too soon should reaffirm our commitment to press forward for progress,” the former first lady added.

The Hill reports:

Chicago police released dashboard camera footage late Tuesday documenting McDonald’s final moments during a confrontation with police in October 2014. Officer Jason Van Dyke, 37, is allegedly shown shooting and killing the African-American teenager in a volley of 16 bullets.

Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder in connection with McDonald’s death.

Clinton argued Wednesday that the series of events is an opportunity for addressing the nation’s relationship between law enforcement officials and minority communities.

“As criminal charges proceed in this case, we also have to grapple as a country with broader questions about ensuring that all our citizens and communities are protected and respected,” she said.

“The mothers I met recently in Chicago are right: We cannot go on like this,” the Democratic White House hopeful added. In early November, Clinton met with the mothers of several African-American parents whose children have died in shootings.

Clinton holds a substantial lead among African-Americans over Democratic rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in presidential polling.

About the author

  • Hillary Clinton stated ‘We Cannot Go On Like This’

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at Mrs. Hillary Clinton’s WILLFUL ignorance regarding America’s expanding and shameful *National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect*, *Poverty*, that for more than two generations has deprived untold numbers of American kids from experiencing and enjoying a fairly happy American kid childhood with *Safe Streets* to travel and play on.

    *Child Abuse and Neglect* that is primarily responsible for populating our prisons with depressed, angry, frustrated, undisciplined, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults full of resentment for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of hardships and struggles.

    *Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect* that often leads depressed, sometimes suicidal *(NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)* children to develop into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults lacking empathy and compassion for others, though needing to vent their pent up negative emotions, often causing emotional and physical harm to peaceful people…instead of venting their anger, resentment and pain on the immature single moms and/or dads who introduced them to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsibly building a family before acquiring the practical skills, *PATIENCE* and means to successfully raise and nurture a developing young child who matures into a fairly happy responsible teen and adult with mostly fond memories of their childhood.

    Mrs. Clinton’s ideology of dependency on government programs has created the problems and issues many African Americans are today dealing with.

    Mrs. Clinton remains silent as untold numbers of immature teen and young adult moms create poverty by irresponsibly building families with too many mouths to feed…families that in order to survive are dependent on their responsible neighbors for financial support.

    Many of these immature “living wild” (quoting 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar’s description of his mom) moms fail to socialize their children, and when their depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal children mature into depressed angry frustrated, sometime suicidal teens and adults, they frequently engage in anti-social behaviors that emotionally or physically harm their responsible peaceful neighbors, resulting with police being called to deal with the human failures of immature moms who willfully ignore their children’s well being.

    I am NOT excusing or condoning police misconduct or police who use excessive force. The police take a sworn oath to be a cut-above the average citizenry.

    However, I am writing about what I personally observed are some of the causes for police acting outside the scope of their employment or themselves venting their anger and frustrations at being charged with dealing with depressed teens and adults who as developing young children were irresponsibly raised and nurtured by “living wild” single mothers who deprived their children of growing up in households supervised by two loving, caring parents.

    Frankly, I am severely disappointed that American people like Mrs. Hillary Clinton REFUSE to recognize or acknowledge that a small population or sub-culture of immature, irresponsible FEMALES have abdicated their responsibility to their children, their neighbors and communities.

    The question all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, what real, substantial changes in our society’s attitude and laws need to occur to prevent abuse that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry teens and adults as a result of experiencing the *emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?*
