Even when white people are "cool" with Black folks, it is important for them to remember not to get too comfortable. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton showed how comfortable she is with Black Americans Friday when she made a joke about all Black people looking alike. 

According to The Hill, Recode held an event with the former U.S. senator at New York City's 92nd Street Y, and host Kara Swisher mistakenly attributed the "when they go low, kick them in the shins" quote to Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) instead of former Attorney General Eric Holder. 

After Clinton corrected Swisher, she sarcastically added, "I know they all look alike." Swisher immediately rebutted that claim but then realized the former presidential candidate was joking and gave Clinton a "well done" as the audience laughed.

While some folks appreciated the sarcasm, not everyone thought the joke was a laughing matter.

As the Pittsburgh Courier points out, some of Clinton's critics likely had some of her past statements on race in mind as they called her out for the joke. The politician had to answer for her previous use of the term "super predators" during the 2016 presidential campaign.
