Black Lives Matter Leader Slams the Clintons: They Just Use Us For Votes, Photo Ops

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton may be overwhelmingly winning the black vote (87 percent to 4 percent in the latest Fox News poll), but that doesn’t mean all African Americans think she has their best interests at heart.

In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, Alicia Garza, co-founder of Black Lives Matter, didn’t mince words when it came to describing what she thinks about the Clintons.

“After Bill Clinton told black protesters, “You are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter,” you wrote, “My back is tired of being the path to the White House,” Bloomberg’s Josh Eidelson told Garza during the interview.

“I was angry about that for about a month—seriously, like every single day. It’s reprehensible for him to defend the impacts his policies have had on our communities,” she responded. “The Clintons use black people for votes, but then don’t do anything for black communities after they’re elected. They use us for photo ops.”

And while she doesn’t want to see Donald Trump become president, she said the group is not “indebted to” the left. Rather, she stressed that there’s a significant number of issues to be engaged in at the state and local levels.

“We’re going to ­continue to push,” she said. “We’re not indebted to or endeared to the Democratic Party.”
