‘Be Accountable’: #BlackLivesMatter Protester Who Confronted Hillary Speaks Out on CNN
#BlackLivesMatter protester Ashley Williams confronted Hillary Clinton last night at a closed-door fundraiser over her past comments on mass incarceration and use of the word “superpredators.” She appeared on CNN this afternoon to further explain.
Williams told Poppy Harlow she wants Clinton to ‘be accountable for the things that she said,” wants an apology to communities of color for mass incarceration, and wants her to “reconcile the inconsistencies of her record.”
Harlow brought up new comments today from Clinton saying she would use different language today. After hearing the whole thing, Williams says she still doesn’t hear an apology or an acknowledgement of how her actions and rhetoric have affected the black community.
Williams firmly believes that Clinton is far too inconsistent and “we don’t know which Hillary we’re voting for,” whether it’s the Hillary of the past or “this refined Hillary that allegedly shows up for racial justice.”
As a result of her protest, #WhichHillary blew up as a Twitter trending topic today.
