Response to MrScorpio (Reply #8)

Mon Aug 10, 2015, 03:40 AM

25. Thank you so much for your explanatory post on why #BlackLiveMatter are doing what they're

doing, Mr Scorpio.

This..

"To some politically minded Twitter users, the Bernie Sanders who spoke at Saturday’s Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix did not look like the civil rights rabble rouser that he has claimed to be. When protesters began chanting “say her name,” a reference to black women who have died in police custody, Sanders simply talked over the protesters. When asked to speak about recent events such as the death of Sandra Bland, a young black woman who died in a Texas jail after a traffic stop, he shifted the topic to the economy."

And, his supporters wonder why #BlackLivesMatter supporters are not impressed by him.
