During a speech before the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Hillary Clinton was asked about the “most meaningful conversation” she has ever had with an African-American friend.
The Democratic presidential nominee explained she has had African-American friends for most of her life, including two black female chiefs of staff.
“They’ve supported me, they’ve chastised me, they’ve raised issues with me, they’ve tried to expand my musical tastes,” Clinton said. “So we’ve had – we’ve had a lot of, we’ve had a lot of great, great times because of our friendships. So I can’t really pick one conversation out of, you know, 50 years of conversations.”
That answer may have sounded nice, but it was nothing more than pandering, according to Bill Clinton’s childhood friend Dolly Kyle.
“Hillary doesn’t do anything from a genuine human perspective,” Kyle said. “She is scripted entirely.”
Like virtually all modern Democrats, the Clintons try to portray themselves and their party as champions of racial equality.
However, the truth is far different. The Democratic Party has a long history of institutional racism and Bill and Hillary Clinton have continued that racist tradition, although much of the public does not know it.
Kyle, who was Bill Clinton’s friend and then lover for many years, shared some insights in her new book “Hillary: The Other Woman.”
For example, although the Clintons may smile in the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s face, behind his back they call him “that G**damned n*gger,” she reported.
In 1974, Hillary erupted at Bill’s campaign manager, Paul Fray, calling him “you f**king Jew bastard.”
When Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas, he was sued multiple times by groups of minorities, both blacks and Hispanics, for violating the 1965 Voting Rights Act. He lost every time.
Kyle explained the Delta area of Arkansas has an overwhelmingly black population, yet as of the 1980s, the voters had not elected a black representative to the Arkansas state legislature in hundreds of elections. This was because the district had been gerrymandered to dilute the black vote.
“Black people sued Billy and other state officials,” Kyle wrote. “Blacks won. The district’s lines were redrawn under court order to something more equitable so that blacks might have a chance to elect one of their own to serve in the Arkansas legislature.”
In nearby Crittenden County, a black Democrat named Ben McGee won his party’s primary for a seat in the Arkansas state legislature in 1988. However, Gov. Bill Clinton tried to replace McGee with a white Democratic candidate of his choice. That case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, where the court ruled 8-0 against Clinton.
The Clintons did not just discriminate against black people; they singled out Hispanics as well. Three years after Bill’s half-brother Roger went to prison for drug dealing, then-Gov. Clinton gave Arkansas state troopers the authority to stop and search any vehicle that looked like it might be carrying illegal drugs.
“Specifically, the troopers were to stop and search cars driven by Hispanics, especially those cars with Texas license plates,” Kyle wrote.
When Bill Clinton was sued in federal court for this antidrug program, the judge ruled it was unconstitutional. However, Bill threw one of his “infamous temper tantrums,” according to Kyle, and threatened to renew the Hispanic profiling program anyway.
“A few years later, without targeting Hispanics directly, Billy gave the Arkansas state troopers the right to stop and search any car at their discretion,” Kyle wrote. “Subtle, huh?”
Clinton racism sometimes took even subtler forms. Kyle noted Bill and Hillary have always fostered and exploited a “plantation mentality” focused on black people.
According to Kyle, “If you are a person of any color who believes that the government owes you a place to live and food to eat and a monthly stipend to buy clothing, electronics, and cars, then you have adopted a plantation mentality.”
The benefit of this mentality, of course, is that the Clintons receive an overwhelming share of the black vote even when they are not truly helping black people. Even though Clinton’s 1996 welfare reform law had a negative impact on the black community, many blacks still celebrated the cool, saxophone-playing Clinton as “America’s first black president.”
Furthermore, Kyle pointed out Clinton’s “three strikes and you’re out” law led to the near lifelong incarceration of thousands of African American men.
“More than 150,000 inmates are serving life sentences largely because of the Clinton ‘three strikes’ rule,” Kyle wrote. “It did not matter if the crimes were petty ones such as drug possession or major felonies like armed robbery.”
She noted if a defendant was white and wealthy, there was rarely a third strike. Poor blacks, on the other hand, were not so lucky. But their incarceration did allow Clinton to claim unemployment was down, mostly because prisoners are not counted as unemployed.
Kyle said the media are uninterested in reporting examples of Clinton racism for the same reason they are uninterested in most Clinton scandals – they love the Clintons and have been protecting them for decades. Because the media wish to protect the Clintons, it will be hard to spread the truth about their racism.
Kyle believes black preachers may hold the key to educating the black community about the Clintons, but so far they have been dropping the ball.
“It’s unfortunate that the preachers in so many of the black churches are linking with the Clintons for many historical reasons, and a lot of people in the black community take their cues from the preachers on Sunday,” she lamented.
Kyle acknowledged it will be difficult to get African Americans to abandon Hillary Clinton in large numbers, but she draws encouragement from the black people she speaks to about the Clintons.
“My experience has been that every African American person with whom I had conversations in the past couple of months has been quite open to hearing about the racial discrimination lawsuits and about the Clintons’ racial epithets against African Americans, as well as Jews,” she said.
Kyle said it’s mostly younger blacks who have been open to her message, but some older blacks have heeded her warning as well.
“Three different older African American women told me that their nieces had been telling them these things, and now they were going to pay more attention to it,” she relayed. “So I’m happy to see that they’re open to learning the truth about the Clintons.”
