In more news from the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton has again faced questioning about her controversial 1996 comments about some black youth whom she called "superpredators." On Tuesday during a campaign stop in a coffee shop in Minneapolis, Clinton was confronted by a young Somali-American woman, who asked the former secretary of state about her superpredator comments. The quiet back-and-forth ended with Hillary Clinton growing frustrated and telling the young woman, "Well, why don’t you go run for something then?" This comes about a week after Black Lives Matter activist Ashley Williams confronted Hillary Clinton about her 1996 superpredator comment during a private fundraiser in Charleston, South Carolina.
