I asked @HillaryClinton about racial justice on @theGrio's Facebook chat today. Here is the question, and her reply. pic.twitter.com/hf8xUUdQKr

The issue of “white privilege” is a regular talking point for social justice warriors and ‘Black Lives Matter’ activists and it has become common for white celebrities to profusely apologize for their skin color in order to appease such groups.
The problem with this narrative is that “white privilege” looks a lot like hard work. Asian students who enter school with no academic edge over whites routinely out perform them, suggesting that cultural attitudes to effort and achievement matter more than skin color when it comes to success.
This is not the first time that Hillary has vowed to help the ‘Black Lives Matter’ cause, despite the movement’s ideological guru being a convicted cop killer who is on the FBI’s ‘Most Wanted Domestic Terrorists’ list.
During a conversation with three ‘Black Lives Matter’ activists last summer, Clinton promised to “change laws” and to “change allocation of resources” in order to combat perceived racism.
Perhaps decorated Marine Christopher Marquez wasn’t showing enough “humility” when he was viciously attacked by a mob of black teenagers for refusing to answer when the group demanded to know if he thought “black lives matter”.
Meanwhile, in a related story, one of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ agitators who interrupted a Bernie Sanders speech last year told Fox News that the phrase “all lives matter” is a racial slur and that Sanders is only interested in representing the “needs and concerns of mainstream white America.”
