Your Black Politics: Hillary Clinton, White Greed, and the Rage of White Female Racism

September 4, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

“… When Hillary was crying, and people said that was put on, I really don’t believe it was put on. I really believe that she just always thought, ‘This is mine. I’m Bill’s wife. I’m white.

Not for a woman, not for a white woman, but for a “Hillary Clinton type of woman”: white, elitist, rich and powerful.
