Is Hillary Clinton a racist?

Is Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton a racist? The answer to that question depends on who you ask. Hillary would probably say no, but her history of verbal mishaps tell a different story.

Senator Clinton was roundly criticized in 2004 when she joked that Mahatma Gandhi used to run a gas station in St. Louis. She later apologized, saying it was “a lame attempt at humor.” Clinton drew similar criticism 2 years ago when she told a mostly black audience at a Harlem church that Republican leaders ran the House “like a plantation”. Again, she apologized, sort of.

Clinton recently came under fire again when comments she made appeared to diminish the contributions Martin Luther King Jr. made to the civil rights era. Her aides expressed outrage at the media for even suggestion Hillary is a racist. But is Hillary really that clueless and do we really want another openly racist president in the White House?

The fact that Hillary is married to the honorary first black president of the Untied States hasn’t helped her case with the black community. Especially since now it seems her husband Bill might be a closet racist himself. To many blacks who supported Bill Clinton through two elections, that revelation is a bitter pill to swallow.

    Firrrrst!! LOL..just had to do that cause I’ve never been first before….ok….back to the point at hand. In no means do I think Hillary is a racist, she just feels like she’s down with the people because she does have strong ties with the black community. I don’t feel she should be pulling Obama’s card, however everyone has that friend who is white and can get away with saying certain stuff around select people because they grew up in the same environment.

    She probably is. And why is Bill the first honorary “black” president? Because he cheated on his wife and then lied about it? What did he do for black people? I was a kid when he was in office, so I’m clueless.

    I don’t know if she is a racist, but I know she is the kind of low down politician that I am tired of dealing with. Her and Bill’s strategy has been to remind US citizens that he was black. She was afraid that people were just looking at him as a colorless individual and she is depending on good old fashioned American racism to knock Barack out of the race. I have no respect for her or her tactics and I will vote for a Republican if she becomes the Democratic nominee.

    It occurred to me that I started talking about Barack without mentioning his name. Bill and Hillary want to remind American’s that Barack is black.

    I agree with Bird. And I think she’s doing this, be it blatantly or subliminally because she’s…let’s say, “perturbed” that she may not be able to fully count on the Black vote 100% like she thought. She’s miffed and it shows. During that debate I thought she looked the fool and Barack put her in her place…quite eloquently. :lol: Besides, you could ‘see’ how ‘exasperated’ he was at having to respond to her snarky comebacks.

    We have to be smart about what we take into our (black people) spirit. We tend to Cry “They’re a Racist” Wolf, when we are ill informed, underinformed, or not informed all together.

    Hillary’s statement was shortened by a Washington Post jouranlist, Marjorie Valbrun, in an online article, titled: Will They Play the Race Card?. I don’t know if Ms. Valbrun other statements are true or not, but this one, I want to point out the following…

    Ms. Valbrun wrote: “Clinton herself has made racially tinged comments that could be taken as either insensitive or patronizing. The most widely noticed was in her efforts to dismiss Obama’s talk of “hope” and “change” as empty idealism. In doing so, she offhandedly diminished the important role played by Martin Luther King Jr. in pushing America to meet its promise of equality for millions of black Americans. “Dr. King’s dream began to be realized when President Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act,” Clinton said. “It took a president to get it done.”

    Now someone please steer me correctly if I am off point here…The “racially tinged comments” is the statement “”Dr. King’s dream began to be realized when President Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act,” Clinton said. “It took a president to get it done.”

    So lets think about it…MLK was not a politician, a law maker, not even an attorney. Who has the power to change laws?…all of the above and specifically a PRESIDENT. The phrase: “Dr. King’s dream began to be realized…” is acknowledging Dr. King’s contribution.

    Nothing woud have happened otherwise, so Hillary’s statement “It took a president to get it (the changing of the law) done” is an accurate statement. Nothing racial about it.

    I am of the opinion, that these are serious times, a serious election, and the outcome (woman, blackman president) will have huge effects on everyone. How many people have you heard say ‘elections dont effect me”… the bottom line is..whether you are straddled btwn hillary or obama, make an informed decission. Review, research and get informed on your facts.

    And on another note: I for one don’t subscribe to the ****on was the first black president…where did that come from? because he ate a little soul food here and there and played his saxaphone kind of jazzy! WTF!, the fact of matter is NOT BLACK, and he didn’t stay in office long enough for us to decide if he REALLY liked us or not.

    It seems you took Hillary’s statment the same as I did. I was not offended by it, but felt she was stupid for saying it. She said Dr. King had the hopes and dreans and Johnson had the power. How is that an agrument against Barack being president? She has acknowledged that he has the hopes and dreams and now only needs the powere to make it happen. That was when I started wondering about her and again, I still don’t concede that she is a racist. I just think she is an idiot.

    My friend kept saying that too as I brought her daily news of Bill and Hillary’s antics. I guess she just had to see for herself. She learned yesterday that Hillary supported a politician who opposed the civil rights act in her early days. So despite all this crap her and Bill have been doing to dirty up the campaign, it took finding out about Hillary’s pass for my friend to give up on her.

    NO, I FAIL TO UNDERSTAND WHY JUST CAUSE SHE’S IN A CLOSE RACE WITH A BLACK MAN THESE COMMENTS ARE STARTING TO BOTHER PEOPLE. WHY NOT ADDRESS THEM WHEN THEY WERE BROUGHT UP YEARS AGO. MOST PEOPLE WERE LOVIN HILARY BEFORE SHE RAN AGAINST BARACK BUT NOW ITS LIKE OH WELL IM DOWN FOR BARACK JUST BECAUSE HE’S BLACK. EVEN THOUGH I WOULD LOVE FOR A BLACK MAN TO RUN AMERICA IM MORE CONCERNED WITH WHOS GONNA DO WHATS BEST FOR OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY GET IN THERE, WHETHER THEY BE MAN,WOMAN,BLACK,WHITE,BLUE OR BROWN!

    I WAS ALL FOR HILIARY BUT ONCE I WATCHED THE DEBATE I SAW HER IN ANOTHER LIGHT. I REALLY STARTING SEEING THAT SHE PLAYS ON BLACK PEOPLE FOR VOTES BECAUSE WE THINK “HER FAMILY IS DOWN”. IM GLAD OBAMA STATED SHE WAS ON WALMART’S BOARD OF ATTORNEYS, I HATE WAL MART THEY ARE SO RACIST.
    I AM NOW STARTING TO SEE THAT OBAMA MAY BE THE BEST CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT……HILIARY AND BILL ARE ON A SMEAR CAMPAIGN, AND USING THE BLACK PEOPLE TO TURN AGAINST OBAMA..
    NOT ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR OBAMA BECAUSE HE IS BLACK!

    BETTYEJ says:

    It still amaze me that some black people are still living in the dark ages. Before Hillary found out that Obama could go toe to toe with her, she was all white, just knowing she had the Presidency in the bag. What a difference money made!

    After she finally realize that Obama was a force to be reckon with, all of a sudden she brought out her “Big Gun”, Slick Wily! Next thing I knew she was on every black show she could get on and in quite a few black Churches with pictures to prove her Blackness. All of the so called black leaders, that haven’t done a damn thing for their own communities were embracing her with open arms. You can bet whatever Black neighborhood she was in, she was well protected. But when Whitie left the hood, were the people who live there equally safe in their own homes? I think not!

    These scrum bags have never been nothing but carpetbaggers roaming from place to place until lying not once, but twice to get into the White House. Since they never own anything of their own before, they had no respect for the White House or holding the highest office in the land. These low life’s are Lawyers/Liars, who knew the law and broke them every chance they got and gave us, the American citizens, who as taxes payers, pay for their services, their ass to kiss. The White House, under their care because a cess pool, with their Holly Weird friends , for money, able to come in, adults, and jump on beds and have orgies whenever they wanted. And to top it off with Hillary knowing Bill was a career cheater, allowing him to screw around whenever he wanted, being protect by Betty Curry and his Secret Agents. Just like when they lived in Arkansas!

    During the Impeachment Hearing, Monica was only a smoke screen. They both were guilty of all the things they were accursed of, but both the Republican’s and Democrat’s cover their nasty behind because he was a setting President, they say! But, the real deal is Hillary had files from the FBI that her and Bill used to keep them in check.

    When Jessie Jackson stroll up the White House Lawn, with his very pregnant Mistress by his side, to pray for Slick Willie, that should have gave all blacks a clue, they these carpetbaggers needed to be kick out of the White house and send packing back to Hog Heaven!

    Now that they can afford a house, since he is supposed to be our so called black President, are they living in the hood? Clinton has his office in Harlem, where we as tax’s payers are paying millions of dollars per year, how much time does he really spend their with his so called black brother’s? Did you know, that Slick Willie didn’t even want to be in Harlem in the first place, but the uptown digs that he really wanted, were nix’s because they were too high

    I don’t believe Clinton was black, despite what people want to think. Not saying all white people are racist, but you can think you know someone until they get drunk and rant a racial slur “by accident” which lets you know their true feelings are lying beneath the surface. Something inside me (intuition) is telling me not to trust Hilary Clinton, so I’m going with my gut feelings.

    To be real honest, they are both making my stomach hurt. It’s like deciding to vote for the lesser of 2 people what even put together don’t make 100%. I don’t think she’s racist, I think she just doesn’t know better. You can’t teach common sense.
    On the other hand, would we be as offended if Obama made the same comments? And who decided Clinton was the ‘black’ president? Unless you are talking about George Clinton, I’m not feeling it. Even in the dark, they are still white.

    bobblekins says:

    Hillary Clinton is most definitely racist, and the only reason some people say Bill Clinton was the first “black” president, is because he’s amoral. He has proven his amorality time and time again.
    It’s wonderful to read so many intelligent people here, who can obviously see through her. Enough with overly entitled white women! She acts like it’s her “turn” or something to be president. And got the nerve to go stank the minute a black man looks like he might get in the way. If she’d stuck to the issues, I wouldn’t be mad. But she didn’t. She went racist, like pretty much all whites will do, if a black person looks like they’re getting ahead of them. I will not be voting for her if she wins the democratic nomination. A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for racists and encouragement for overly entitled white broads like her.
    Go Barack Obama!

    Bsoul says:

    Some considered Clinton the first Black president because he had more Blacks in his cabinet/detail than any other person during my lifetime. He really made a concerted effort to address issue that afflicted Black and other minority communities.

    The social service programs he developed, revamped and funded all but dried up when he left office. Clinton took care of our community when some of our own didn’t care to.

    After it’s all said and done, he’s White and he knows it; he just has affection for Blacks.

    With that said, I haven’t seen enough of Hilary to know where she stands, but she strikes me as desperate and is last-ditch-effort campaigning, not prejudice. Some would sell their soul to get into the White House, I’m not sure she isn’t included in that category.

    BETTYEJ says:

    Someone refreshed my memory on just what the racist Bill Clinton has done for black people:

    Bill Clinton turned me completely off when he totally skipped out on Lani Guinier-A Black woman-his nominee for assistant attorney general for civil rights. He left the woman out to dry during her congressional hearing. Even the Bushes had enough “manhood” to stick up for their nominees when the opposition turned up the heat.

    Also, let’s not forget, it was under Bill Clinton’s term when the disparity in prison sentences for crack and “regular” cocaine reared its head.

    Also, it was under Bill’s watch that the “3 strikes” sentencing came into being. As well, the genocide of 800,000 to 4 million (depends on your source) people in Rwanda happened under Bill Clinton’s watch. Clinton chose to allow the Tutsis to be massacred -I guess because Rwanda didn’t have any oil or minerals or anything of value that he could exploit.(Unlike the Blacks in America who will vote for him/Hillary- again)

    And for all of my uninformed sisters and brothers who say that we’ve done so well under Clinton, have you forgot that many of our people lost jobs because of NAFTA? And do remember the number of Black women forced into minimum wage jobs in the name of welfare reform.

    How about the Vince Foster “suicide” and the women that Clinton exploited both in and out of the White House?

    Remembering Bill’s acts and actions, many times he looked more like a Republican than a democrat.

    It’s really sad that our people are uninformed and uneducated regarding the Clintons. I hope that many will investigate for themselves and stop being spoon fed a bunch of junk.

    And I will add this, if Ron Brown got any family left, ask them about the Clinton’s!

    Doug Adams: Died January 7, 1997- A lawyer in Arkansas who got involved trying to help the people who were being swindled out of their life savings. Adams was found in his vehicle with a gunshot wound to his head in a Springfield Mo. hospital parking lot.

    Mary C. Mahoney: 25, murdered at the Georgetown Starbuck’s coffee bar over the 4th of July ’97 weekend. She was a former White House intern who worked with John Huang. Apparently she knew Monica Lewinsky and her sexual encounters with Bill Clinton. Although not verified, it has been said that Lewinsky told Linda Tripp that she did not want to end up like Mahoney.

    Ronald Miller: Suddenly took ill on October 3rd,1997 and steadily worsened until his death 9 days later. (This pattern fits Ricin poisoning.) Owing to the strangeness of the illness, doctors at the Integris Baptist Medical Center referred the matter to the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office. The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office promptly ran tests on samples of Ron Miller’s blood, but has refused to release the results or even to confirm that the tests were ever completed.

    Had been investigated by authorities over the sale of his company, Gage Corp. to Dynamic Energy Resources, Inc. was the man who tape recorded Gene and Nora Lum and turned those tapes (and other records) over to congressional oversight investigators. The Lums were sentenced to prison for campaign finance violations, using “straw donors” to conceal the size of their contributions to various candidates. Indeed, Dynamic Energy Resources, Inc. had hired Ron Brown’s son Michael solely for the purpose of funneling $60,000 through him to the Commerce Secretary, according to Nolanda Hill’s testimony.

    Sandy Hume: On Sunday, February 22nd, 1998, Sandy Hume, the 28 year old son of journalist Britt Hume, was reportedly found dead in his Arlington, Virginia home. Aside from the statement that this was an “apparent” suicide, there remains in place a total media blackout on this story, possibly out of concern that the actual facts will not withstand public scrutiny. Worked for Hill magazine, about Congress for Congress.

    Jim McDougal: Bill and Hillary Clinton friend, banker, and political ally, sent to prison for eighteen felony convictions. A key whitewater witness, dies of a heart attack on March, 8 1998.

    Johnny Lawhon: 29, died March 29, 1998- The Arkansas transmission specialist who discovered a pile of Whitewater documents in the trunk of an abandoned car on his property and turned them over to Starr, was killed in a car wreck two weeks after the McDougal death.. Details of the “accident” have been sketchy — even from the local Little Rock newspaper.

    Charles Wilbourne Miller: 63, was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head on November 17, 1998 in a shallow pit about 300 yards from his ranch house near Little Rock. Police found a .410 gauge shotgun near Miller’s body and a Ruger .357-caliber revolver submerged in water. Investigators concluded the Ruger was the weapon used by Miller to kill himself. Yet, two rounds in the handgun’s cylinder had been spent.

    He had long served as executive vice president and member of the board of directors for a company called Alltel and was deeply involved in his own software engineering company until the day he died. Alltel is the successor to Jackson Stephens’ Systematics, the company that provided the software for the White House’s “Big Brother” data base system and that was behind the administration’s plan to develop the secret computer “Clipper” chip to bug every phone, fax and email transmission in America.

    Carlos Ghigliotti: 42, was found dead in his home just outside of Washington D.C. on April 28, 2000. There was no sign of a break-in or struggle at the firm of Infrared Technology where the badly decomposed body of Ghigliotti was found. Ghigliotti had not been seen for several weeks.

    Ghigliotti, a thermal imaging analyst hired by the House Government Reform Committee to review tape of the siege, said he determined the FBI fired shots on April 19, 1993. The FBI has explained the light bursts on infrared footage as reflections of sun rays on shards of glass or other debris that littered the scene.

    “I conclude this based on the groundview videotapes taken from several different angles simultaneously and based on the overhead thermal tape,” Ghigliotti told The Washington Post last October. “The gunfire from the ground is there, without a doubt.”

    Ghigliotti said the tapes also confirm the Davidians fired repeatedly at FBI agents during the assault, which ended when flames raced through the compound. About 80 Branch Davidians perished that day, some from the fire, others from gunshot wounds.

    Mark Corallo, a spokesman for the congressional committee chaired by Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., said that police found the business card of a committee investigator in Ghigliotti’s office. Corallo said Ghigliotti’s work for the committee ended some time ago.

    Tony Moser: 41, was killed as he crossed a street in Pine Bluff, Ark on on June 10, 2000. Killed 10 days after being named a columnist for the Democrat-Gazette newspaper and two days after penning a stinging indictment of political corruption in Little Rock.

    Police have concluded that no charges will be filed against the unnamed driver of a 1995 Chevrolet pickup, which hit Moser as he was walking alone in the middle of unlit Rhinehart Road about 10:10 p.m

    Police say they have ruled out foul play and will file no charges against the driver because he was not intoxicated and there was no sign of excessive speed.

    And do remember the number of Black women forced into minimum wage jobs in the name of welfare reform.

    ********************************************************

    You had me until this part. First of all a minimum wage job pays waaay better than welfare. More importantly I know people personally who have benefitted from the program. It doesn’t force you into a minimum wage job, it forces you to do SOMETHING to better yourself. My friend had been on welfare for 16 years and kept ignoring the welfare agency’s warnings to either get a job or go to school or her food stamps would be cut off. Finally she got cut off and still it took her a month or so of sitting around talking about “woe is me” before she got off of her ass and took one of the jobs THEY handed to her on a silver platter complete with job training. When she got her $1200 paycheck for two weeks of work she was so happy and proud. It would take her nearly 3 months on welfare to make that much cash.

    The welfare to work program is the best thing Bill did during his time in the white house by far.

    Some considered Clinton the first Black president because he had more Blacks in his cabinet/detail than any other person during my lifetime. He really made a concerted effort to address issue that afflicted Black and other minority communities.

    The social service programs he developed, revamped and funded all but dried up when he left office. Clinton took care of our community when some of our own didn’t care to.

    After it’s all said and done, he’s White and he knows it; he just has affection for Blacks.

    With that said, I haven’t seen enough of Hilary to know where she stands, but she strikes me as desperate and is last-ditch-effort campaigning, not prejudice. Some would sell their soul to get into the White House, I’m not sure she isn’t included in that category.

    **********************************************************

    1000% Cosign, minus 1. I may be older than you as I got to experience Jimmy Carter in the white house. That boy had some get your mind out of the ghetto programs for that ass. Schools were well funded and I went on school trips to places like Washington DC FREE OF CHARGE. I went to summer camp every year of his presidencey FREE OF CHARGE. We had recreation programs in the hood FREE OF CHARGE. My generation, in my hood, was saved as a result of his programs that allowed us to experience things outside the hood. Had he teamed that with Clinton’s welfare to work program maybe just maybe crack wouldn’t have been able to infultrate the ghetto like it did during the Reagan “F*ck them ****s” era.

    Sandra I hope you gave **** permission to use those pictures of monica and her children. If not you need to regulate. They took your watermark off and everything. I know blogs recycle each others pictures daily, but I also know you posted those pictures because you and her are friends, or close, or whatever. Now it looks like those were just shots that she sent out to all the media outlets.

    There is no doubt in my mind that she is a racist. White people try to make us believe that they do not see color and that America is past race!! Whatever!! Race is very real. If it was not then they would see Obama as the BEST QUALIFIED CANDIDATE instead of “the Black man running for President”. I hope we wake up and see that The Clintons are not for anyone but themselves! And i’m tried of my people calling Bill “the first Black President” he is not. We like him for all the wrong reasons: he smoked weed, and cheated on his wife!! Come on, PEOPLE!! Open your eyes!!!

    I’m not familiar with Carter. His Habitat For Humanity program is getting rave reviews now. It may not be his incarnation, but his volunteering has put the program on the map.

    Wow, was that a scene out of the Pelican Brief or what???

    I have heard of government scandals, but whoa, that is a bit much isn’t it??? How accurate is this info.? I’m not saying I don’t believe it but how can so much of that be accurate without anything being leaked???

    I gotta agree with Sandra on this one.

    I never gave into that “first black president” crap either.

    Especially since it was under Clinton that the genocide in Rwanda went down without the aid of the U.S. initally. Under Clinton he pawned the problem off on the U.N. (which can only do but so much).

    Hillary thought she had it in the bag….and up came this colored boy who is whipping her ass in votes-lol!!!!

    The Clintons are truly showing there colors….and it ain’t black!!

    I think being that the Clintons are running against a competitive black man, they have become desperate & frustrated that a black man is giving them a hard run. I don’t believe they are all that racist but I believe that they have used blacks & are use to using blacks for political gain. I don’t think it is necessary to disrespect Obama to get the job. Because when you disrespect with personal,RACIAL attacks you disrespect other blacks & others period. Out of desperation, the true Clintons have arisen, “WHITE TRASH”. They don’t need to be in the white house again. Hillary does not have the class to be the first female president…untrustworthy as well! OBAMA 2008-PURE CLASS!

    People are sick & tired of the BUSH & CLINTONS’ MONOPOLY OVER THE WHITEHOUSE. Barack Obama can do as good as anyone of the past presidents. He has earned his chance. I believe & trust Obama, he has the passionate spirit that this country needs. TRUST & SUPPORT OBAMA, HE WILL DO FINE! OBAMA BRAVENESS IS AMAZING! HE IS AWESOME! EMBRACE OBAMA & STOP HATING!
    LET’S STOP SENDING NEGATIVE MESSAGES TO OUR YOUNG BLACK CHILDREN THAT YOU CANNOT BE PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY!
    THE CLINTONS MESSED UP NOW THIS IS THE OBAMA SHOW, LET HIM SHINE! OBAMA 2008!

    I know for a fact that most people in the more black counties of South Carolina voted for Obama because of his race and not his politics. I live in South Carolina and I voted for Hilary. My whole family and a lot of my friends voted for Obama saying they wanna see a brother in the White House. That’ll never happed. Some angry causcasion will take him out as soon as he is elected President. I still think Hilary is going to win the Primary and that she’s going to choose Obama to be her running partner.
