Hillary Clinton said in Monday night’s debate that “implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police” in response to a question from Lester Holt about racial discrimination.
Holt explicitly asked Clinton if she thinks the police have “implicit bias” against black Americans. She replied:
Lester, I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone. Not just police. I think unfortunately too many of us in our great country, um, jump to conclusions about each other. And therefore I think we need all of us to be asking ourselves hard questions about, you know, why am I feeling this way.
In a moment of candor, Clinton said that all Americans are biased because everyone jumps to “conclusions” about each other.
