Earlier this year in February, Hillary Clinton revealed another one of her goals if she is elected president of the United States. Speaking to a group of African-Americans in Harlem, New York City, she spoke of finally putting up a fight that will hopefully end racial issues and inequalities in our great nation. She feels that even after 50 years of having the civil rights act in place, race “still plays a significant role in determining who gets ahead in America and who gets left behind.” She plans on passing a $20 Billion plan to create jobs for youth minority and going with a criminal justice reform plan that will be “end-to-end”.Having shown a history of fighting against race inequality does make her plans seem honest and she had also said that these kind of actions to combat racism has been her “north star” since her early days as an attorney.
I am not sure if I, or the american people, can believe that she will actually follow through with all of her plans for the white house, but I must say I am confident she will do a lot for minorities in our nation if elected. “We have to demonstrate a sustained commitment to building opportunity, creating prosperity and writing wrongs, not just every two or four years, not just when the cameras are on and people are watching but every single day,” she expressed that same day in harlem. When she makes comments like that it’s hard to think that she doesn’t have a heart for the many racial problems millions of Americans face every day.
