Hillary Clinton has been in the public eye for decades, but the more we learn about her, the more we realize how little we actually know. As the former FLOTUS attempts another run for POTUS, let's uncover exactly who she is before it's too late.

From the NY Times, via Legal Insurrection:
The remark caused a stir on social media, with some African-Americans on Twitter suggesting that Mrs. Clinton had lost their votes.
Hillary Clinton, in a Black church, just said "All lives matter." Fam...— Pousbaé (@yoauntielikeit) June 23, 2015
The Rev. Renita Lamkin, who was in the audience at the event, told NPR that Mrs. Clinton's comment did not go unnoticed.
"That blew a lot of support that she may have been able to engender here," she said.
The phrase "black lives matter" has become a rallying cry in the last year for demonstrators amid a spate of episodes around the country, including the 18-year-old Michael Brown’s death in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, where white police officers have been accused of using excessive force against black suspects.
Judith Butler, a professor at University of California, Berkeley, summed up the frustration with the use of "all lives matter" in The Times in January.
"When some people rejoin with 'All Lives Matter' they misunderstand the problem, but not because their message is untrue," she wrote. "It is true that all lives matter, but it is equally true that not all lives are understood to matter which is precisely why it is most important to name the lives that have not mattered, and are struggling to matter in the way they deserve."Nobody should be surprised by this. Clearly, even when the Hildebeest is in full-scale pander mode she still screws it up. But it is really cool to see Clinton's paper of record linking to Twitchy. Well done!
And speaking of Twitchy...

Via USA Today:
Comedienne Amy Schumer is used to being called "racist." After all, she's a comic who isn't shy about cracking jokes on a variety of topics, including race, because playing with that topic is fun and "is a thing we are not supposed to do," she says.
But on Sunday, Schumer clearly had enough of the negative and, she felt, misinformed speech sent in her direction. So the comedic actress shared a defensive note with her haters:
"I ask you to resist the urge to pick me apart. Trust me. I am not racist. I am a devout feminist and lover of all people," she wrote.That instantly reminded me of this:
I have mixed emotions regarding poor Amy's predicament. For the record, I don't think she's "racist" in any real sense. On the other hand, blue-on-blue conflict amuses me even more than her comedy!
For such a keen observer of social norms and an effective satirist of the ways gender is complicated by them, Schumer has a shockingly large blind spot around race. Her lackluster stint hosting the MTV Movie awards...featured lazy jokes about Latina women being "crazy" that left Jennifer Lopez as unimpressed as the online commentariat.
...Schumer's stand-up repeatedly delves into racial territory tactlessly and with no apparent larger point. Her standup special features jokes like "Nothing works 100% of the time, except Mexicans" and much of her character's dumb slut persona is predicated on the fact that the men she sleeps with are people of color. "I used to date Latino guys," she says in an older stand-up routine. "Now I prefer consensual."
Schumer has said that she's not worried about the show upsetting people because viewers know "we have good intentions," but as Anne Thériault wrote for the Daily Dot: "Amy Schumer frequently makes jokes that perpetuate stereotypes rather than dismantle them … It's hard not to feel like Schumer is only here for women who look like her."I especially adore Amy's pained outrage that she, a white feminist, could possibly be called a racist! (If she was truly committed to being "edgy" she could try her shtick as a Conservative woman.) Talk about liberal privilege!
She can make all the jokes she wants but the fact of the matter is that she's just another white liberal who literally demands immunity from the vicious brand of identity politics she undoubtedly supports (when it's not directed at her, of course).
Put down your torches before reading this so you don't catch on fire. pic.twitter.com/JyRQGvFuX8— Amy Schumer (@amyschumer) June 28, 2015
"I ask you to resist the urge to pick me apart. Trust me. I am not racist. I am a devout feminist and lover of all people. My fight is for all people to be treated equally. So move on to the next person who is more deserving of your scrutiny and not the girl in your corner. Sincerely Amy (a dirty half Jew)"Got that? Not only is she an enlightened white liberal but she's a half-victim herself, yo! Anyway, enjoy the video...
