“I am determined and I am persistent,
and I will call for white people, like myself,
to put ourselves in the shoes of those African American families
who fear every time their children go somewhere.
Who have to have the talk about,
how to really protect themselves when they’re the ones who
should be expecting protection from encounters with the police.
I’m going to be talking to white people.
I think we’re the ones that have to
start listening to the legitimate cries that are coming from
our African American fellow citizens.
And we have so much more to be done
and we got to get about the business of doing it.
We can’t be engaging in hateful rhetoric or incitement of violence.
We need to bring people together
and said on the campaign trail repeatedly,
we need more love and kindness.
And I know that’s not usually what presidential candidates say
but I believe it
and I’m going to be speaking about it from now,
all the way into the White House,
- Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, July 08, 2016,
