CNN’s Marc Lamont Hill, Sheriff David Clarke Fling Racial Slurs at Each Other on Twitter

Hill ClarkeCNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill and outspoken Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke flung racial slurs at each other on Twitter Tuesday.

Clarke got the feud rolling by linking to a story on Hill’s comments that pro-Donald Trump blacks were “mediocre Negroes” paraded around by the Trump transition. Clarke– a Trump supporter– responded by calling Hill a “jigaboo,” an archaic term for a black man generally considered offensive.

That prompted a response of course, including one in which Hill “didn’t” call Clarke a variety of racial slurs (which of course was his way of doing just that).
