Hillary: Missouri Protests Reflect ‘Concern’ and ‘Despair’ of Students, I ‘Appreciate’ Way Young People Speaking Out


Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated that she appreciates “the way young people are standing up and speaking out” and that “what happened at the university there, what’s happening at other universities, I think reflects the deep sense of, you know, concern, even despair that so many young people, particularly of color, have” in response to a question on protests at the Univeristy of Missouri during Saturday’s Democratic presidential debate on CBS.

Hillary was asked, “recently, at the University of Missouri, that activism was very, very effective. So, would you suggest that kind of activism take place at other universities across the country?”

She answered, “I come from the 60s, a long time ago. There was a lot of activism on campus, civil rights activism, anti-war activism, women’s rights activism, and I do appreciate the way young people are standing up and speaking out. Obviously, I believe that on a college campus there should be enough respect so people hear each other, but what happened at the university there, what’s happening at other universities, I think reflects the deep sense of, you know, concern, even despair that so many young people, particularly of color, have. You know, I recently met with a group of mothers who lost their children to, either killings by police, or random killings in their neighborhoods, and hearing their stories was so incredibly, profoundly heartbreaking.”
