Here's new video posted by Good magazine of Hillary Clinton meeting with Black Lives Matter activists after a campaign event last week in New Hampshire:

As you can see, the conversation becomes a little tense when Clinton responds to a question about her feelings by instead giving BLM's Julius Jones advice about strategy. (I'm not saying she's wrong about the importance of turning public consciousness into legislation, but she comes across as a little impatiently transactional by giving that kind of response to a personal question.)
