Response to Depaysement (Original post)

Sun Aug 9, 2015, 05:25 AM

15. BLM is urgently calling for criminal justice reform. That's why they're protesting.

They're asking all the candidates to come up with plans for reforming the criminal justice system, which is killing black people and imprisoning them in high numbers.

Instead of telling them to shut up, why not join with them in asking all the candidates to work on this?

O'Malley already has. The others should, too.

"Bernie, you were confronted at NetRoots at by black women," Johnson said. "You have yet to put out a criminal justice reform package like O’Malley did."

Presidential candidates will not win Black votes without putting out an explicit criminal justice reform package. As was said at the Netroots action, presidential candidates should expect to be shut down and confronted every step along the way of this presidential campaign
