Young democrats react to debate, Main topic: Race

SAVANNAH, Ga. – A room full of students in anticipation of every topic in the presidential debate, but to them there’s only one that stood out the most.

“I just wanted to see what they had to say about brutality and there were some interesting facts thrown out there,” Monica Boyd, a Savannah State University student, said.

And for these students Clinton delivered.

“Unfortunately, race still determines too much,” Hillary Clinton, (D) Presidential Nominee, said Monday night.” Often determines where people live, what kind of education in their public schools they can get, and yes, it determines how they’re treated in the criminal justice system. We’ve just seen those two tragic examples in both Tulsa and Charlotte.”

“Hillary Clinton saying about the African Americans and how we really need to just really come together and try and help the situations going on,” Angela Saxon, another Savannah State University student, said.

Situations these students said need to be dealt with around the country.

“The difference of ideals when it comes to community policing or when it comes to how African American males are treated by police,” Antwon Lang, Savannah State University Young Democrats President, said.

One of many ideals students said they want to see, like how Trump handles coming in the next debate.

“I think that in all retrospect some of the answers were avoided,” Lang added. “Some of them were not directly answered. I would like to see Donald Trump not just give some snap back, but I want to see what are you planning on doing.”
