Hillary Gets Cornered at Fusion Democratic Forum: What Does White Privilege Mean to You?

Hillary Gets Cornered at Democratic Forum: What Does White Privilege Mean to You?

Fusion hosted a Democratic forum with all three presidential candidates tonight, and during Hillary Clinton‘s time taking questions, she received a query about her white privilege.

One of the forum attendees asked Clinton, “Can you tell us what the term ‘white privilege’ means to you and can you give me an example from your life or career when you think you have benefitted from it?”

Clinton said for many years, she didn’t consider herself privileged, just lucky to have had the good life that she did.

However, she did recall a time when she was young and volunteered to babysit the children of migrant workers, and Clinton said that her experiences that day made her realize that she experienced a vastly different life because of the economic advantages her family had.
