Clinton’s Condescending Attitude Toward Blacks

The politicians’ actions show she doesn’t respect black Americans.

Ahead of the Democrat South Carolina Primary Feb. 27 (a week after the Republican version), Clinton has been moving to shore up her support among blacks, getting the endorsement of the Congressional Black Caucus, defining her policies she thinks will appeal to black voters. This is necessary for her campaign strategy. Socialist Bernie Sanders has the white millennial vote in the bag. Clinton’s hope is to decisively win in states with high minority populations. But the question of whether she will get the support is different than whether she should get the support, for the politicians’ actions show she doesn’t respect black Americans.

At a recent speech in Harlem, Clinton rolled out a litany of proposals. Blacks could have special entitlements through a beefed-up Office of Civil Rights at the Department of Education and a progressive Department of Housing. If they didn’t elect her, a “dead broke” white woman, then it would be four to eight more years of “systemic racism.”

In trying to reach black voters, Clinton insulted them to their faces. “This is racism. Hillary is treating blacks as aimless, victimized people who cannot control their destiny and whose best hope depends upon the benevolence of white saviors in the Democratic Party like her,” opined Investor’s Business Daily. “Her crass pandering for black votes lays bare the low view Democrats have of African-Americans. They are counting on them being slaves to their entitlement politics. Maintaining black resentment is the main source of their power.”

Just recall the condescension Clinton showed the outlying Black Lives Matter protesters who talked about her platform with her in August. After listening to their petition, Clinton snapped, “Respectfully, if that is your position, then I will talk only to white people about how we are going to deal with the very real problems.” Combined with her reputation for lying, Clinton’s own worst enemy is her character.
