Hillary Clinton apologized on Thursday for remarks she made in a 1996 speech, in which she used the word ‘superpredators’ to describe kids with “no conscience, no empathy” who committed crimes....
“In that speech, I was talking about the impact violent crime and vicious drug cartels were having on communities across the country and the particular danger they posed to children and families,” Clinton told the Washington Post on Thursday. “Looking back, I shouldn’t have used those words, and I wouldn’t use them today.”
Clinton said she has devoted her life’s work to helping underserved children, too many of whom, she said, are in African-American communities.
