Hillary Clinton Having Trouble Getting The Black Youth Vote In 2016 Presidential Election (New York Times)

Hillary Clinton 

As a consequence of incendiary, defamatory and stereotypical comments U.S. presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, made about black males being “super predators” and revealing her husband’s administration in the 1990s must “bring them to heel” she is now having trouble getting the black youth vote in the 2016 election.

An article in the mainstream newspaper the New York Times reveals Clinton’s struggle for the black youth vote, as many do not trust her over the mass incarceration of African-Americans in the 1990s under husband Bill Clinton’s administration. Millions of young black males were locked up in America's prison system, many of whom young voters are related to in some measure.


Young Blacks Voice Skepticism on Hillary Clinton, Worrying Democrats

SEPT. 4, 2016 - WASHINGTON — When a handful of liberal advocacy organizations convened a series of focus groups with young black voters last month, the assessments of Donald J. Trump were predictably unsparing. But when the participants were asked about Hillary Clinton, their appraisals were just as blunt and nearly as biting.

“What am I supposed to do if I don’t like him and I don’t trust her?” a millennial black woman in Ohio asked. “Choose between being stabbed and being shot? No way!”

“She was part of the whole problem that started sending blacks to jail,” a young black man, also from Ohio, observed about Mrs. Clinton. “He’s a racist, and she is a liar, so really what’s the difference in choosing both or choosing neither?” another young black woman from Ohio said.
