Warren Confronted About Her Controversial Comments Regarding the U.S. Justice System

"I’m just concerned that your rhetoric there is inciting some of the, like, division that you claim the president is purporting."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was confronted by a constituent over her recent comments claiming that the entire U.S. justice system is “racist from front to back,” during a town hall in Fitchburg, Massachusetts on Thursday.

“You said that the justice system — and I just want to quote you, so I say it right — is ‘racist from front to back.’ I’m just concerned that your rhetoric there is inciting some of the, like, division that you claim the president is purporting,” the constituent told Warren. “You say that Donald Trump undermines the justice system, but it highly concerns me that you made a blanket statement that the over 400 federal judges of color, thousands of law enforcement officers of color, and even the new black police commissioner of Boston of color are racist.”

The constituent is referring to comments that Warren made while speaking at the Netroots Nation convention earlier this month.

“This wasn’t about individuals. I didn’t call any individual anything. What I was talking about is a system that has a lot of good people in it … who, by golly, have dedicated their lives to getting out there to try to build a justice system that works,” Warren responded.
