“Well first of all, that comment was made one time,” Clinton said. “I’ve always been in favor of young people [getting more] opportunities.”

Clinton touted a speech she gave early in the campaign that included speaking out against racial profiling, but the young woman was unimpressed, asking how blacks could be sure Clinton would be “accountable to black communities now.”

“I think, you know, you can look at my history,” Clinton said. “I always have been.”

“I don’t think that’s true,” the young women said. “[I’ve looked] at your history and that’s not what happened.”

“I’m happy to give you more information, and the reason so many black and [inaudible] people across the country support me is because they know me. They know what I’ve done, and they know that I mean what I say, and I will have a very comprehensive agenda to deal with a lot of the problems,” Clinton said.

She added she was proud to have support in the Somali-American community, but the young woman appeared to dismiss Clinton touting having the endorsement of a Somali-American councilman, flustering Clinton.

“You know what, dear?” Clinton asked. “You have a different opinion. He is a Somali elected to the City Council. I’m really proud of that.”

The woman said something unclear, to which Clinton responded, “Why don’t you go run for something then?”

“I’m working for a Somali-American,” she replied as she turned to leave.

“Well, good, good luck to you,” Clinton said, laughing.
