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". http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/hillary-clinton-should-as_b_9238064.html
"Lessons From the O.J. Simpson Case for the Presidential Race and the Nation’s Racial Divide," by Marjorie Cohn. http://www.globalresearch.ca/lessons-from-the-o-j-simpson-case-for-the-presidential-race-and-the-nations-racial-divide/5508521
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.
