Former President of the United States of America, Bill Clinton defended his wife’s criminal justice platform against activists while campaigning for her in Philadelphia.
Mr. Clinton began to defend his wife when protesters started shouting “black youth are not ‘super predators’” referring to language that Mrs Clinton used in 1996 to support her husband’s 1994 crime bill.
“I talked to a lot of African-American groups [in 1994],“ Mr Clinton shouted back. ”They thought black lives mattered. They said take this bill because our kids are being shot in the street by gangs. We had 13-year-old kids planning their own funerals.“
He also defended Mrs Clinton’s use of the word “super predators” to describe black youth.
“This is what’s the matter,” Mr Clinton said. “I don’t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out into the street to murder other African-American children. Maybe you thought they were good citizens, she didn’t. She didn’t. You are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter.”
Mr Clinton added: “I’ll tell you another story about a place where black lives matter: Africa.”
