Bodies , College, and Crime: APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED Statement from Activist Who Challenged Hillary Clinton On Race Last Night "Last night, I confronted Hillary Clinton with her own words. She used those words to frighten the nation with dog-whistle racism by referring to at-risk youth as "superpredators." "While Clinton's choice of words in that speech were racist and offensive, i is the impact of the policies that she vigorously championed that should give us all pause. She owes the nation an apology for using her position of power to enact criminal justice policies which have been roundly denounced as failures "Here's the truth: the Clinton legacy has left our prisons bursting at the seams. Real lives have been destroyed as a result. It is an indisputable fact that millions of Black people were locked up for drug crimes and provided the bodies for the expansion of the prison industry “The 1994 Crime Bill that she so vigorously defended not only expanded incarceration, but stripped funding for college education from prisoners. The Clinton legacy allowed for policies that prevented anyonc convicted of a felony drug offensc from receiving food stamps or income assistance. Clinton-led welfare reform fundamentally ripped apart the social safety net. "Hillary Clinton did not misspeak. She acted vigorously to support policies that this country now struggles to undo. She must own her role in the political disaster that befell Black communities as a result. "Makc no mistake. Hillary Clinton's efforts to push thesc policies resulted in the continued destruction of Black communities and the swift growth of our mass ncarceration crisis. "I held Hillary Clinton responsible for this damage. And that is what she owes Black communities an apology for."
