Hillary Clinton said that “white Americans… need to recognize our privilege” during a speech at the NAACP convention Monday.

Clinton said, “I’ve been saying this for a while now. I’m going to keep saying it because I think it’s important. We white Americans need to do a better job of listening when African-Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face every day.” (RELATED: Hillary: ‘All Of Us’ Are Racist [VIDEO])

“We need to recognize our privilege and practice humility rather than assume that our experiences are everyone’s experiences. We all need to try as best we can to walk in one another’s shoes, to imagine what it would be like to sit our son or daughter down and have the talk about how carefully they need to act around police because the slightest wrong move could get them hurt or even killed,” Clinton said.
