Clinton Again Confronted over 1996 "Superpredator" Comments

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.
