Senator Gillibrand actually said she will fix Baltimore by talking to suburban women about their privilege. Gillibrand is fixated on the racist tenet of white privilege. She also sees systemic prejudice everywhere.

“I don’t believe that is the responsibility of Cory and Kamala to be the only voice that takes on these issues of institutional racism,” Gillibrand said. “I think, as a white woman of privilege, who is a U.S. senator running for president of the United States, it is also my responsibility to lift up those voices that aren’t being listened to.”

Gillibrand then claimed she could “explain” what white privilege is to women who previously voted for President Donald Trump.

“I can talk to those white women in the suburbs that voted for Trump and explain to them what white privilege actually is,” Gillibrand continued.

Gillibrand referenced Martin Trayvon but Trayvon was shot by a man who identified as Hispanic and who Trayvon was beating up at the time.

“When their son is walking down a street with a bag of M&M’s in his pocket, wearing a hoodie, his whiteness is what protects him from not being shot,” Gillibrand claimed. “When their child has a car that breaks down and he knocks on someone’s door for help and the door opens and help is given, it’s his whiteness that protects him from not being shot.”

“That is what white privilege is today,” Gillibrand added.

What does she think suburban women can do? Does she plan to explain whiteness to white women? It’s crazy.
