Clinton On 'Super-Predator' Speech: 'I Shouldn't Have Used Those Words'

Hillary Clinton speaks in SC

"You're the first person to ask me and I'm happy to address it", Clinton told the woman, Ashley Williams, according to the Post.

Those remarks, referring to the discredited "super-predator" theory of crime popular in the 1990s, caused Clinton trouble on Wednesday, when a Black Lives Matter activist challenged her on them.

"Can you apologize to black people for mass incarceration?" Williams quickly asked Clinton. "Will you apologize for mass incarceration?"

With polls showing her as many as 30 points ahead of Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, Ms Clinton may have chose to have skipped events such as the one at the Royal Baptist Church in North Charleston.

On Thursday, Hillary Clinton told the Washington Post, "Looking back, I shouldn't have used those words, and I wouldn't use them today".

They are not just gangs of kids anymore.

"I think it's been most surprising to me to see somebody who was affable and was good company and had a reputation of being kind of bigger than life really traffick in a lot of the prejudice and paranoia", she said, "and some of the comments that he's made, which have been so divisive and mean spirited, doesn't quite fit with what I thought I knew about him". "We need to end the school to prison pipeline and replace it with a cradle-to-college pipeline".

There were paid tickets, and I interrupted Hillary while she was giving her speech.

"I also made it very clear that he has not won over a large demographic of black people in this country no matter how progressive he seems and that his policy platform", said Black Lives Matter leader Johnetta Elzie, "that his past history of dealing with black people, from his place of power in VT is also a concern in our community". "It was in the air, used widely by the media as well".

"This is just a way to show people that he's doing something, but it's not good enough", she told the student newspaper.

Game of Thrones' Finn Jones Cast in Marvel & Netflix's 'Iron Fist'
Marvel also got major kudos for Netflix series Jessica Jones' portrayal of post-traumatic stress and female sexuality. Perhaps we could get an Asian-American Captain Marvel or Black Bolt? Jones plays Ser Loras Tyrell on Game of Thrones.

And were you satisfied with her response?

Audrey Brown, 36, of Charleston, a stay-at-home mom, said she doesn't like Clinton suggesting Sanders has a weak record: "I'm like, 'That's an X on you for throwing it on Bernie, ' " she said of Clinton's criticism.

Clinton has been confronted before by Black Lives Matter protesters. They deserve professionals who are driven by empathy and not a desire for cheap publicity.

She went on to say that it's time for young people to elbow their way to the front of social discourse. I want candidates to stand by the things that they've said and the policies that they're responsible for, and I want them to make sense of the things that are inconsistent.

"So it's fair to say that our economies are entwined, and we need to keep upping our game both bilaterally and with partners across the region through agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP". It's our turn to fight for freedom. We have taken so much away from the successes of our elders. Purchase her latest book Are We Better Off? The older woman says the pair formed a bond.

"In order to address the stigma around natural hair, the nominee or the president has to address racism itself", Gray said.

This isn't the first time Clinton has met opposition by activist groups during her campaign. She said in order "to take back our streets from crime, gangs and drugs", police officials had to focus on what she called "super-predators".

Charlotte activist John Barnett agrees.

Wherever the answer lies, the confrontation drew national attention to Clinton's record on race as she heads toward a likely runaway win Saturday and a projected turnout of more than 350,000 voters.
