Now it’s Hillary Clinton who has taken up the “white privilege” banner.

Speaking before Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, the former secretary of state said white people should be aware of their privilege.

“White Americans must do a much better job of listening when African-Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face every day,” she said. “We need to recognize our privilege and practice humility rather than assume our experiences are everyone else’s experiences.”

The conference was being held to honor the late civil rights leader, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

The panel on Fox News Channel’s “The Five” played a short clip of the Democratic presidential front-runner’s speech.

Cohost Dana Perino observed that Clinton’s “biggest accomplishment this year could be that she will be able to do what no other Republican has been able to do up till now, and that is to unify the Republican Party.”

She continued, “I find her comments today and the tone of it to be the one that motivates me to say, ‘Alright, never Hillary.’”

Co-host Greg Gutfeld said Clinton is out of touch with reality.

“She does not speak for all white people,” he said. “She has absolutely no idea what’s going on in the real world.”
