Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio did a racist joke at a charity event in New York this past Saturday 4/9/2016. The Inner Circle event is a charity event where City Hall and local parody journalists get together and poke fun at each other. During the event, a skit was done that apparently was supposed to be a spin off the Broadway play “Hamilton”.
It was atrocious on multiple levels. Hillary tried to make light of her embarrassing gotcha moment (directed at Bernie) that backfired. (If you missed it, she had difficulty getting onto the subway with a metro card). And Bill de Blasio tried his hand at being a rapper… Then, miraculously, it actually got worse.
The real kicker, the grand joke of this whole unpleasant skit, was a moment that will go down in history as one of the dumbest political moves of the 2016 presidential race, possibly history. If you thought the scream of Howard Dean was bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet. These privileged fools decided to make a “Colored People” joke….. Yeah you heard me right- a joke directed at the very people Hillary Clinton has been touting as her firewall during this entire primary season.
Racist, mind boggling, enraging, and just plain degrading are a few phrases that come to mind.
After being majorly responsible for the continued imprisonment and disenfranchisement of African Americans all across the US., this brilliant presidential candidate decided that now was a good time to step on the “little people” just a little bit more. The awkwardness of the whole scene was palpable. In fact, you can hear silence rush over the crowd as Bill explains why he was late in endorsing Hillary.
It was because he was on quote, “C.P. time” (Colored People time), as he looks over at the man that is apparently in on the joke…. (that is a whole other rant that I will spare you). Then Hillary redirects and says that “C.P. time” stands for “Cautious Politicians time”.
Oh the irony. Not only did they marginalize a group of people that have for some reason been voting for her in some states, she obviously enjoyed it! What makes the whole “cautious politician” bit even worse is that it highlights the fact that many people had to look at this joke, and ok it, before it even happened. That would obviously include Hillary Clinton, her whole team, whoever works for Bill, and whoever came up with this horse manure in the first place.
If you aren’t already livid, take a look for yourself. And if you are a person of color, I apologize for this deplorable video. But we must share this among the people that are somehow deceived, still thinking Hillary has their best interests at heart. She absolutely does not.
If she wins, the war on drugs will undoubtedly continue. She has already said that she has no interest in decriminalizing marijuana. She likes private prisons because she makes money off of them (yes your family and children are paying for her lifestyle with their lives). And she worked on the board of Walmart. She is “The Man“. And if you don’t believe me, then do a little research and try to prove me wrong.
Hillary can not be president. Even the “first woman president” argument has fallen victim to Hillary’s continued lack of empathy for citizens everywhere. We won’t get incremental progress. We will take steps back. How many,……. I’d like to never find out.
P.S. What do you think would happen if Bernie Sanders or Trump made this joke? Front pages everywhere would run with it, and it would replay every 15 minutes on every corporate media station for at least a week.
