Usher Speaks With Anti-Hillary Clinton Protesters
Presidential candidates have been put on notice. Wrangling up the Black vote will be no easy task this year as more #woke voters are putting the screws to potential POTUSes.
Friday, Hillary Clinton visited Clark Atlanta University to launch the “African-Americans For Hillary” grassroots campaign. And it was all good until a couple of protestors crashed her speech by evoking Black Lives Matter and singing Janelle Monae’s “Hell You Talmbout.”
At the event, Clinton laid out how she planned to address issues important to the African American community in Atlanta and across the nation over the course of her campaign.
As she spoke, about a dozen “Black Lives Matter” protesters were near the front of the stage. At one point, they began to chant “Black Lives Matter.” Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Rep. John Lewis then joined Clinton on the stage as the crowd chanted “let her talk,” 11Alive’s Doug Richards reported.
“I’m sorry they aren’t listening, because a lot of what they want, I’m offering,” Clinton told the crowd. The protesters were situated in front of the crowd, just a few feet from the podium. They sang and chanted for several minutes. Mrs. Clinton paused her speech for about thirty seconds, then talked over the noise from the protesters.
The protesters were escorted out, where Usher was later spotted hearing out and speaking to the concerned students in the parking lot.
Were the protestors wrong to interrupt Hillary’s speech?
