From the WaPo:

Clinton goes into today’s crucial primaries in Texas and Ohio with her candidacy on the line, and (Marion) Wagner (a regional director for NOW) believes it is ignorance and bigotry that undermined it. As Wagner and other NOW executives toured Ohio last week, they repeated a resounding message: Clinton has been mistreated by an opponent who subtly demeans her, by a mainstream media that ridicules her, by voters too threatened to vote for a confident woman, by young women who no longer feel the urgency of the women’s movement, by African American women for whom race is more important than gender.

by young women who no longer feel the urgency of the women’s movement

How dare they? The ungrateful …

by African American women for whom race is more important than gender

How dare they? The ungrateful …
