Hillary Clinton doesn’t have enough time in her social justice campaign for president to keep up with all the new Netflix shows.
The documentary, “Making a Murderer” has taken the nation by storm and has prompted calls for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to re-open the cases of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, both of whom where convicted of the murder of Teresa Halbach.
Clinton was taking questions at a town hall event in Iowa on Tuesday when an attendee asked her if she knew about the case. According to The Daily Caller, Clinton shook her head no but then used the opportunity to spread her belief that the justice system is targeting the African-American community.
“I think we do have a systemic problem in our criminal justice system,” Clinton said. “It is true that there’s enough evidence to show that if you are an African-American man you are more likely to be arrested, charged, convicted and incarcerated for doing the same thing as a white man. And there’s just a lot of evidence of that. And of course, if you are poor that makes it even more likely.”
While Clinton was portraying herself as a champion of race and justice, she forgot just one small fact. The two men convicted of murder in the case she was asked about are white. In an effort to rally her supporters, Clinton slipped up and let her true feelings out. She automatically assumed that the two convicts were black.
