It was only a $500.00 a plate event; not the $50,000 Romney bash by far, but one person who anted up wanted more than a meal and was promptly booted out. Why? Because the question was not on the talking points list, leaving Hillary in the wind.

Two sources detailing a statement Hillary Clinton made concerning her advocacy in favor of the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, have the potential to cause a major tide shift away from Clinton by and among African American voters. 

The sources are:

Antonio Moore "Hillary Clinton Should Ask for Black America's Forgiveness Before She Asks for its Vote".
"Lessons From the O.J. Simpson Case for the Presidential Race and the Nation’s Racial Divide," by Marjorie Cohn.

The Clinton statement is:

“They are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended that way, but first we have bring them to heel.” 

That is a politically charged statement, to put it no more forcefully than that.
