During the Democratic presidential debate Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked whether white Americans had a right to feel resentful because of changing demographics — Clinton seemed to agree.
PBS moderator Gwen Ifill, an African American, raised the issue.
“If working-class white Americans are about to be outnumbered, are already underemployed in many cases, and one study found they are dying sooner, don’t they have a reason to be resentful?” she asked.
“I’m deeply concerned about what’s happening in every community in America,” the former secretary of state began. “And that includes white communities.”
She then listed problems such as alcoholism, drug addiction, lack of education and shorter lifespans.
“This is a remarkable and horrifying fact,” she said.
Black Lives Matter demonstrators were protesting outside the debate venue. Assuming they heard Clinton’s question and answer, they probably had one more thing to complain about.
