Hillary Clinton Used Black Prison Labor While First Lady of Arkansas
Newsweek, June 7, 2017
“When we moved in, I was told that using black prison labor at the governor’s mansion was a longstanding tradition, which kept down costs,” Hillary Clinton writes.
Despite her alleged friendships with these men, Clinton tells her readers: “We enforced rules strictly and sent back to prison any inmate who broke a rule.”
Clinton makes no mention of whether the men received any money for working for her and her husband. Some state states, including Texas, Arkansas, and Georgia, do not pay inmates at all. Hillary Clinton was a direct participant in what is correctly described as modern slavery.
In her book, Clinton tried to soften the reality of unpaid black men serving a wealthy white woman.
Despite her reaching out to the black community during her 2008 and 2016 bids for the presidency, Hillary Clinton actively supported and lobbied for her husband while more and more black people were sent to prison.
In 1973, the Justice Department sued Donald Trump and his father for discriminating against potential tenants who were black. In 1989, ahead of the trial of the Central Park Five—a group of African-American men who were wrongfully accused of brutally assaulting a white woman— Trump took out an advert in the New York Times calling on the state to bring back the death penalty.
Trump promised to send more people to prison without acknowledging the huge racial disparities in the prison system or the need for police reform.
2016 was a choice between a white woman benefitting from black prison labor and a white man campaigning on sending black people to prison.
Здешние политиканы, «эксперты», подконтрольные ЦРУ СМИ продолжают нахваливать псевдодемократическую Америку.
Те, кто любит «наших американских партнеров», «забывают» о грязных, злых уродах США.
О таких монстрах, как коварный и крайне опасный мошенник, расист, лжец, и убийца Дональд Трамп. И о таких, как порочный Конгресс США, фашистские ФБР и ЦРУ, лживые американские СМИ…
