    During the Democratic town hall Tuesday night, presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders fielded questions from an audience of South Carolina voters. Some wanted to know about each candidates' view on the criminal justice system, while others wanted to know about Wall Street.

    For one woman, Columbia College junior Kyla Gray, natural hair was the topic she wanted the candidates to address.

    "Recently I started wearing my hair natural," the 22-year-old said, "and I've noticed a difference in the way some people address and look at me."

    "First of all, thank you for being so candid and brave to stand up and say this about yourself," Clinton said. "I believe strongly that we have to deal with systemic racism and systemic racism is found in our criminal justice system, it's found in housing, in job opportunities, in education, and it's also cultural."

    "You have a right to wear your hair any way you want to," Clinton continued. "That's your right. As somebody who, ya know, has had a lot of different hairstyles, I say that from some personal experience."

    The internet really does allow anything to be a "story".
    Maybe we should move back to solely print and impose taxes on paper.

    This is going to be a game changer in BLM support of Hillary

    As easy as this is to poke fun at, it really is an actual issue and important topic of discourse for black women. Black women are so used to straightening their hair so as to conform to the Anglo-Saxan appearance that they end up really damaging their hair over years of chemical applications and pressing it with ultra-hot metal slabs.

    Wouldn't it be kind of fucked up with we white men had to get perms all the time just to fit in and get ahead?

    Not to mention being so colonized that they'd ridicule each other for having straight hair. You don't have coarse hair?? Ugh, you got that bad (straight) hair! How hideous!

    But yeah, this is a cultural issue so it'll be mocked mercilessly.

    Worrying about what people think is a very immature characteristic naturally found in young people.

    Get a job, raise a family, you should be so busy with life ,you won't be able to stop and think about what people think about looks

    I've no doubt that it's a real issue for many women. That doesn't make it a news story and, frankly, doesn't make it a substantive enough issue for a presidential candidate to comment on. Then again, our presidential elections were already becoming nonsense reality shows and now, clearly, have fully gone that route.

    She had terrible hair. Black hair is notoriously difficult to style. That doesn’t mean you should stop trying and let it run amok. Nobody will give a shit but people will find you less attractive. Same if you stop exercising or taking care of your appearance. It's dumb to think all white girls have natural amazing hair. Please, they spend hours working on that shit.

    It’s annoying how much Hillary panders to blacks. She just wants their vote, that's it.

    So, if I have a student who asks what I think is a fairly silly question and choose to use that question to make a broader and more substantive point, am I pandering? Should Clinton have berated the questioner?

    Seems to me, based on the text here, that she was polite not pandering. This:
    "I believe strongly that we have to deal with systemic racism and systemic racism is found in our criminal justice system, it's found in housing, in job opportunities, in education, and it's also cultural."
    reads like a real point, not just pandering.

    I just read the thread's opening post and haven't seen any video, because this is all pretty fucking stupid, but your post caught my eye.

    I think Hildog should next expound on the natural quality of cankles and how they are empowering and such to ugly women everywhere.
    First, she's got to lose the pants suits though.

    I don't see anything wrong with her hair; seems like a silly thing to bring up to presidential candidates.

    Did you watch the town hall? She was black pandering for like 30 minutes. It's like, Jesus Christ woman, there are other things to talk about.
