1. That is a strong and powerful statement.

I would have liked to have seen something about housing discrimination and discrepancies in prison sentencing too but this is an awesome start.

Thanks for posting this.

2. This is how it's done

Work with the government you have - right now - at this minute.

3. Seems BLM and the NAACP could benefit from each other.

I'm not hearing as much as I'd like from these 2 unifying.

Broad coalition of partners including the Democracy Initiative, Communications Workers of America, Common Cause, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, 1199 SEIU, The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Sierra Club, National Bar Association, and Black Women’s Roundtable Announce 860-mile March from Selma, AL to Washington, DC featuring nationwide demonstrations, teach-ins, and #JusticeSummer campaign

OUR LIVES, OUR VOTES, OUR JOBS, OUR SCHOOLS MATTER

BLM and the NAACP should be walking and working together. Why are they not?

Disconnect.

And an attempt to unify.

I have ALWAYS felt there was power in numbers. Here we have what some as described in the articles; a gap between the young and the older. Different groups utilizing and depending on different modes of communication, both are experts.

Perhaps its time work was done to unify these two. BLM has the youth and protesting down but the NAACP also has valuable experience.

BLM is so on point with their message but they also take the risk of losing their significance with inefficient messaging. The NAACP is an excellent t vehicle to do this but could use a short visit to Pimp My Ride.

All candidates should be pressurized relentlessly whether at a rally or on the public sidewalks in front of the homes where fundraisers and private parties are held.

These are just my private thoughts that come to me just before I go to sleep.
