White Americans need to do a better job of listening when African Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face every day.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 8, 2016
CNN: Clinton says 'implicit bias' still exists in U.S.
(CNN)Hillary Clinton pledged Friday to bring law enforcement and communities together to develop national guidelines on the use of force by police officers, days after two black men were killed by police officers.
Speaking to a largely African-American audience at the African Methodist Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, Clinton also addressed the fatal shootings of five Dallas officers Thursday night, acknowledging the heightened racial tension in the country. But she also said it was important to acknowledge the "implicit bias" in society and some police departments and, in particular, called on white Americans to empathize with African-Americans.
"I will bring law enforcement and communities together to develop national guidelines on the use of force by police officers. We'll make it clear when deadly force is warranted, and when it isn't. And we'll emphasize proven methods for de-escalating situations before we reach that point," she said.
