Hillary Clinton Heckled by Black Lives Matter Activists

The first "African Americans for Hillary" rally met some resistance in Atlanta.

The group of activists chanted “Black Lives Matter” as Clinton delivered her speech on racial injustice and criminal justice reform.

Clinton at first acknowledged them: "Yes they do and I’m going to talk a lot about that in a minute,” she said.

"Now, now my friends I am going to get to some very important points that actually prove that black lives do matter and we have to take action together," Clinton said. "And I hope that we’ll have a chance to talk more as I have been meeting with activists from the Black Lives Matter movement.”

“I’m sorry they didn’t listen because some of what they’ve been demanding, I am offering,” Clinton said.

As she campaigned today, Clinton unveiled more of her criminal justice agenda, which included calling for an end to racial profiling and for fairer sentencing for crack cocaine use.

As the activists' chants overpowered her, supporters chimed in, “Let her talk, let her talk."
