Hillary: A black man in a hoodie is scary for a lot of ‘well-meaning’ white people

Hillary Clinton thinks young black men wearing hoodies are scary.

“For a lot of well-meaning, open-minded white people, the sight of a young black man in a hoodie still evokes a twinge of fear,” she said during a campaign stop in South Carolina Thursday.

The question, of course, becomes whether Hillary is one of those “well meaning white people.”

Even with the protection of the United States Secret Service, Hillary is still worried about a black kid in a hooded sweatshirt?

The bigger question, though, is what would have happened if a Republican candidate had uttered those same words?

Clinton made the speech Thursday, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at the mainstream media.

Imagine the wall-to-wall marathon of opinions there would be if the same phrase were uttered by Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.

The Twitterverse, however, had a lot to say about it.
