Good on Hillary for telling white America to stop pretending that their experiences are black people's experiences. Practice some empathy.

41. Thank you, DM M! Hillary was strong at the Urban League Conference..



Hillary to Jeb:

“I don’t think you can credibly say that everyone has a right to rise and then say you’re for phasing out Medicare, or repealing Obamacare,” Clinton charged. “People can’t rise if they can’t afford health care. They can’t rise if the minimum wage is too low to live on. They can’t rise if their governor makes it harder for them to get a college education. And you can’t seriously talk about the right to rise and support laws that deny the right to vote.”

Yeah, right Hillary. So the Corporations are running things and the people be damned. You're the only candidate that knows how to work with Corporate America, since of course you're highly funded by them. Nothing like an insider to tell the truth. Bernie Sanders lives in a world of fantasy.

19. Nerdy Wonka is keenly on point. TOD doesn't miss anything. Humility. Yes. How many, myself included,

have tried to write the experience as the same. It cannot be so. That's when it's time to not post and just listen. The rage, frustration, the language.

We are on the same planet, yet living alternative realities. Tread carefully, show Namaste:

"I bow to the God within you" or "The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you" - knowing we're all made from the same One Divine Consciousness.

49. Did you see this, Kath? "Hillary Wins The Only Standing Ovation From An Obama Crowd"

effectively while campaigning to reach black voters in 2008. But Clinton showed a capacity for empathy that took some at the plenary by surprise."

snip//

"Clinton didn’t equivocate to the audience here as to whether she was on Obama’s side or not. And she ripped Republicans — namely Jeb Bush on Friday — for saying they want to repeal Obamacare, snipping at the name of Bush’s political action committee, to some of her most enthusiastic applause."

I love this!

Oh heck.. another snip//

"Clinton certainly played to the affinity that voters have for Obama, even alluding to the eulogy of South Carolina State Sen. Clementa Pinckney, in which Obama sang “Amazing Grace.” Said Clinton, “Obama delivered a eulogy that sounded like it had come straight from angels.”

But Clinton more than held her own with this audience, 95% of whom voted for Obama. “I thought she was more comfortable than Ben Carson,” Jones said. “And he’s black.”

WOW!

34. #BlackLivesMatter, Tarheel.. and it's so good they came to Protest at NRN.. they changed

the whole dynamic of the Democratic campaign.. which is Vital!

Although, Hillary was talking about racial inequality on June 20, 2015 in San Francisco at the Conference of Mayors..



Started out talking about the massacre in Charleston that had just happened.. and making a good eloquent case for common sense gun laws. Receiving a standing ovation!

"We need to tackle this problem With urgency and conviction. Mentions President Obama kindly 3 times.

"..Take racist violence head on.. struggle with racism is far from finished.."

"Race remains a deep fault line in America.. states racial inequality.

"Can't hide from hard truths on racial injustice.."

Poignant story about Debbie Dills.. I didn't know that.

Encourages "Cities against racism.. and preventing gun violence.."

We have to be "Too busy to hate" "Need more love and kindness in this country."

No wonder Hillary is doing so well with the African American Community on the whole.. she really speaks to them.

JaneyVee http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=463135

Hillary is a strong, powerful, intelligent woman who has the strength and the passion to be our President.

The last Republican administration was an economic and foreign affairs disaster. I'm sure she will remind people of this as the campaign continues.
