peace, y'all
Yes, Hillary Actually Said That.

And Ima let y'all know, she's just bringing to light what a lot of people are thinking.

I'm sure there will be those who are upset that she 'played the race card'.

Know what? I'm mad the 'race card' even still exists. How about that rotten apple? Work on fixing the fact that racism and institutional biases still exist in an undercover, underhanded, still unequal USA, and not yelling at the woman for saying what she thinks on an unfortunate situation - our national legislature is outta control.

Yup, she could've chosen better words. The words she used drew attention to the issue. She knew what she was doing, and I'm sure she decided that was the right way to go. How 'bout you?

I'm out.

    Hillary was my senator for four years, and I feel very cynical about her in general. When I hear the word "opportunist," she comes to mind. That she would say such a thing is not altgoether unsurprising to me. I think it's callous. It bothers me to see privileged White politicians (her, Gingrich) comparing the experiences of their fellow privileged White politicians to what slaves experienced on plantations.
