In a high-profile speech in Harlem on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton is expected to address the issue of systemic racism, and offer solutions for how to break down the barriers that hold back African American families.
The speech is part of Clinton’s effort in recent days— as she closes in on the South Carolina primary and turns her attention toward more diverse March states — to show that she views racism and discrimination as stand-alone problems in American in need of their own solutions. Her approach appears designed to highlight the contrast with her chief rival Bernie Sanders, who so far in his campaign has mainly addressed racism through the lens of economic inequality.

In her speech, which she is scheduled to deliver after a closed-door meeting with Rev. Al Sharpton, National Urban League President Marc Morial and NAACP President Cornell Brooks earlier in the day, Clinton is expected to call for “new investments in job creation to ending redlining to ensuring equal pay for women of color to ending the school-to-prison pipeline,” according to a campaign aide.
Clinton’s first major policy speech of her campaign last spring — delivered after the death of Freddie Gray in police custody — was about ending the era of mass incarceration. But her latest remarks on the topic come as the wounded Democratic front-runner puts a renewed focus on race as the primary moves into more diverse states like Nevada and South Carolina.
In recent days, she has campaigned with Congressman John Lewis, a civil rights hero, and rolled out endorsements from African-American religious leaders in Flint, Michigan, who lauded her for visiting the city in crisis and bringing national attention to the plight of its largely African-American community.

I can picture it now.

"Members of the African-American community...muh vagina...vote for me.

Thank you."

It's all about securing the votes to get into office first. Then, the real fun begins.

And, somehow, Trump is more hated than this snake. I guess enough people have a hard-on for having a vagina in office, regardless of the witch attached to it. F*ck having diversity in lieu of wisdom.

Pretty much. While its certainly true Hillary puts up with a lot more shit just by having a uterus in US politics; She is generally awkward/awful at interacting with other human beings in an authentic manner. But at the same time is too obtuse and calculating with her pandering. Its not a good mix and it can be cringe worthy to watch.

She's always been her own worst enemy when campaigning. She's starting to show some of the same cracks again that sunk her in 2008.

Clinton will never have any support from me, but to say that Trump has more "wisdom" than her is idiotic. Clinton despite her many, many faults has a prolific background of political experience. Trump has a bunch of cash that he got from inheritance and bailouts. And even if you somehow think that having money makes someone a better leader, then the Bush family likely has way more than he does.

Yeah pretty much me too. I feel like I'm one of the only people who realize nothing will change no matter who you vote for.
