“Tamir Rice shot in a park in Ohio. Unarmed and just 12 years old.”

“Eric Garner choked to death after being stopped for selling cigarettes on a street in New York.”

“Freddie Gray, his spine nearly severed while in police custody in Baltimore.”

“And Sandra Bland, a young woman who knew her rights and did nothing wrong, but still ended up dying in a Texas jail cell.”

But the protesters from “Black Lives Matter” had already been escorted out of the rally and never heard the substance of Clinton’s speech.

“So I’m sorry, I appreciate their passion, but I’m sorry they didn’t listen because some of what they’ve been demanding I am offering and intend to fight for as president,” Clinton said. “For example, I will make sure that federal funds for state and local law enforcement are not used to buy weapons of war that have no place on the streets of our country.”

Clinton is counting on African American voters to turn out strong for her in November. In 2008, 56% of black voters supported the Democratic primary and the Clinton campaign would like to build on that momentum.

But Earl Ofari Hutchinson, an author and political analyst, argues in a recent editorial that Clinton already has a lock on the Black vote.

He’s probably right. But for Clinton to mobilize even more young Black voters — young Black folks who are enthusiastic about her candidacy — she may need to sit down with these young people to hear exactly what they believe she should do in order to earn their vote.
