Clinton booed at MLK rally

Blowback for Hillary

NEW YORK, N.Y. — Dogged by continuing racial tensions around her
presidential campaign, Hillary Rodham Clinton drew a smattering of boos on Monday when she spoke at a religiously tinged Martin Luther King Jr. rally put together by a union organizing predominantly black security workers.

The catcalls came when Clinton was introduced and her speech drew only tepid applause compared to the boisterous ovations drawn by many of the pastors and reverends — not to mention a hip-hop artist and slam poet — who took the podium before her.

Ron Paul could not be reached for comment.
