“I will call for white people like myself, to put ourselves in the shoes of those African-American families who fear every time their children go somewhere, who have to have ‘The Talk,’ about, you now, how to really protect themselves [from police], when they’re the ones who should be expecting protection from encounters with police.” – Hillary Clinton to Wolf Blitzer on CNN
Who the hell does Hillary Clinton think she is lecturing all white people?
Then again, since she used the caveat “like myself,” maybe Hillary wasn’t talking to all white people. She certainly wasn’t talking to me.
I myself do not routinely break the law and get away with it.
At no time in my life did I put on a fake black accent while talking to black people.
Who are the “white people like myself” of whom Hillary speaks?
Rich, white Liberals whose only exposure to people of color is when they pass the maid on their way to the pool?
Funny how wealthy, entitled Liberal whites like Hillary think they have the moral authority to lecture everyone else simply because they share our skin pigmentation.
Unlike the Dowager Duchess of Chappaqua, I live in a neighborhood that is relatively integrated. Blacks, Asians, Latinos, Whites. We all live here. The last person I want lecturing me is some wealthy old lady from an exclusive, white neighborhood.
About a mile away from me, blacks are shot, stabbed and beaten — not by police, but by violent gang members. The “talk” responsible parents in that neighborhood have with their kids has more to do with keeping their kids safe from gangs.
My church is located in that predominantly black, lower income area of the city. For a short time I lead my church’s youth group until they hired a new Youth Leader. One evening after Youth Group, one of the girls who attended asked for a ride home. Her parents did not like her walking home after dark. Their concern for her safety had nothing to do with the police. Their concern had everything to do with the gangs.
This is the reality. Living in high crime, gang neighborhoods is the clear and present danger for young people like that girl.
I gave her a ride home and stayed outside her house until she was safely inside — and certainly not because of the police.
White Americans need to do a better job of listening when African Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face every day.

What a completely racist thing for Hillary to say.
White people don’t need lectures — especially from a woman like Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Who is Hillary to presume to tell “white Americans” anything?! Who is she to scold us and instruct us in what we “need to do?”
Tell me, Hillary. Should I also start talking to blacks in a fake black accent? Will that help?
The “barriers” people face in this country are the making of Liberal Democrat policies. The very policies Hillary Clinton seeks to continue.
The police aren’t responsible for 72% of black children being born into single parent homes. Democrat welfare programs that discourage intact families are.
The police aren’t responsible for the crumbling infrastructure and mismanagement of cities. Decades of Democrat governance is.
The police aren’t responsible for failing schools more concerned with what benefits the teachers unions than what benefits the children. Democrat policies and Democrat coziness with unions are.
The police aren’t responsible for gang members not being prosecuted for violating Federal gun laws. The Democrat-led Justice Department is.
The police aren’t responsible for generational welfare dependence. Democrat policies are.
And who are the people who have to live with the consequences of failed Democrat policies in the inner city?
Certainly not Hillary Clinton.
The families who live in fear of their children being hit by a stray bullet or dragged into a life of gangs. They are the ones who have to live with the consequences.
The teachers who go to work each day in a dangerous environment where they fear for their safety and the safety of their students. They are the ones who have to live with the consequences.
The police who patrol these neighborhoods in order to protect and serve the people. They have to live with the consequences.
And yet Hillary Clinton presumes to lecture “White Americans” as if somehow all white people are to blame.
This kind of shameless pandering — this dividing Americans by skin color — is beneath contempt.
The fact that Hillary thinks nothing of playing this kind of racial politics in order to win election leaves me with a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.
And let me tell you. After nearly eight years of being scolded, lectured and berated by Barack and Michelle Obama, the last thing I want is some sanctimonious, rich white woman sitting in the Oval Office self-righteously wagging her finger at us for four years.
