Hillary: ‘One of My Best Friends Was an African-American’

‘[My black friends] tried to expand my musical tastes’


CLINTON: "So I really have had a lifetime of friendship going back to my college years. One of my best friends was an African-American student. So I cannot compress into one conversation. They have supported me, they have chastised me, they had raised issues with me, they tried to expand my musical tastes — [laughter] [Applause]."
