Clinton Vows to Help Young Black Men Facing Life Crisis

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Saturday, August 11, 2007

LAS VEGAS — A crisis faces more than 1 million young men of color who are “out of school and out of work and too often out of hope,” Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said Thursday.

She, however, rejects painting the men, between 16 and 24, with “a broad brush,” and as a “threat, a headache or a lost cause.”

Clinton said she would call for a national response, largely through her youth opportunity agenda, to turn those men into workers, role models and responsible fathers, during her opening remarks before the National Association of Black Journalists convention here.

Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois will address the group today.
