ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Yes, Hillary Clinton called the nation racist in her first presidential debate.

When talking about race-relations in the country, and the shootings of black men by police officers, debate moderator Lester Holt asked Mrs. Clinton: “Last week you said that we have to do everything possible to improve policing to go right at implicit bias. Do you believe police are implicitly biased against black people?

Mrs. Clinton replied: “I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police. I think unfortunately too many of us in our great country jump to conclusions about each other and therefore I think we need all of us to be asked the hard questions ‘why am I feeling this way?’”

Okay, start the debate.

“That’s going to launch quite a debate tomorrow,” Hugh Hewitt, a conservative radio-talk show host Tweeted of Mrs. Clinton’s comments.

“Would you say that everyone’s a little bit racist Hillary?” Sonny Bunch, executive editor at the Washington Free Beacon tweeted.

Columnist Kimberley Strassel at the Wall Street Journal tweeted: “Hillary: The entire country is racist.”

And there you have it.
