Hillary Clinton Called Americans Super Predators



Keene, New Hampshire - Hillary Clinton, then First Lady, called American youth, super predators. The comment was made with regard to drugs and crime. Clinton stated a new Crime Law had passed in 1994. She said the effort was anti-crime, anti-drugs, and anti-gang.

All of Clinton's comments were made against black people. Since Nixon, crime fighting meant sending more police at black people. Fighting drugs meant more jail for black people. Fighting gangs meant using black youth as targets.

After decades of policy to link crime, gangs, and drugs with black youth, Clinton made the connections in one address.

To this day, these comments have followed her.
