On June 8, Hillary Clinton is scheduled to serve as the Class of 2017 commencement speaker at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn, New York, where she will also be awarded an honorary degree. The announcement has incited protests from several members of the Haitian community who plan to protest the speech and are pushing the college’s president, Rudy Crew, to rescind the invitation.
“Every time the Clintons get in a bind, they run to the black community to whitewash their tarnished image,” said Komokoda, the Haitian group protesting the speech, in a statement.
No, don’t rescind the invitation. Please, allow Hillary to be protested and shamed. (not that she has any) Pay them. She’s made enough money on it all, hold her accountable.
Maybe students will come equipped with some nice stiletto heels.
Exploiting people, particularly poor people, is the Clinton’s expertise. In office or out makes no difference. Perhaps she will get some long overdue ridicule? Furthermore, why should Obama be off the hook either?
