Over the weekend, potential 2020 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made a statement that would have gotten any Republican inundated with accusations of racism.
According to The Hill, Recode’s Kara Swisher asked Clinton during a Q&A session, “What do you think of Cory Booker … saying, ‘Kick them in the shins’?”
It was actually former Attorney General Eric Holder who made the statement, as we reported here. Clinton corrected Swisher, but it was her follow-up statement which raised eyebrows.
“I know they all look alike,” she said, prompting laughter from the audience.
“No, they don’t,” Swisher said, adding: “Oh, well done.”
The Hill added:
Holder and Booker are both black men.
Clinton during the back-and-forth also said she believes “what’s often called political correctness is politeness.”
“It’s respecting the diversity that we have in our society,” she continued. “The Democratic Party is a much more diverse political party, attracting people who are African-American, Latino, LGBT … And I don’t think it’s politically correct to say, we value that.”
“I don’t want to go around insulting people, painting people with a broad brush,” she said. “That’s childish.”
Unless, of course, they happen to support Donald Trump — then they’re “deplorable.”
Naturally, her statement, which was seen as a “joke” by the mainstream media, didn’t sit too well with many.

Seriously, imagine if anyone that the left deemed 'bad people' said something like this, MSNBC would have had a panel of 5 black people talking about it for a special two hour segment.
As a black man who remembers when she called us 'super predators', it's really sad.

Yes, I know the media would go into a thermonuclear meltdown if Trump said it but I think there was zero malice in this. Hillary was being funny. That’s still allowed…except on @TheSimpsons https://t.co/Vn8kgQQaL7
