Hillary Clinton has received support from a handful of artists like K. Michelle and Waka Flocka but David Banner recently questioned the Democratic candidate about controversial remarks she made 20 years ago.
Yesterday [Tuesday March 8] Banner took to Twitter (and Instagram) to ask Mrs. Clinton the following questions pertaining to her comments on “super predators”: “What exactly do you plan to do to repair the hundreds of thousands of lives that you and your husband have admittedly ruined through your biased anti crime campaign?”
For those of you who aren’t aware, during an appearance at Keene State College in 1996, Clinton’s exact statement on “super predators” was: “[They’re] not just gangs of kids anymore. They’re often the kinds of kids that are called super predators. No conscious. No empathy.”
Banner wasn’t the only one who had questions about these past comments. Clinton was asked about them during the most recent Democratic debate in Flint, MI and said it was a “poor choice of words”:
Well, I was speaking about drug cartels and criminal activity that was very concerning to folks across the country. I think it was a poor choice of words. I never used it before. I haven’t used it since. I would not use it again.
Not sure if this was the answer Banner was waiting for, but okay.
