I’m a little pissed at #BlackLivesMatter

So I’m going to jump right into it. I am not PLEASED AT ALL with the recent tactics of the orgnization Black Lives Matter.  While I do agree that more “forward” tactics are needed, rushing stages and being outright rude is not the way.

You know how I like my list to keep my thoughts organized so here goes…

  1. Why is this only being done to the democratic candidates?? Why have they NOT interupted Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Ben Carson etc etc
  2. Have they done ANYYYY research on Bernie Sanders?? Like at all! Please check his resume before you decide to rush him on stage! “While attending the University of Chicago, he was active in the Civil Rights Movement, and a student organizer for the Congress of Racial Equality and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committeee of the actions he took was the coordination of sit-in protests against segregated campus housing, for which he was arrested. Sanders also participated in the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom”
  3. As much as I dislike Hilary Clinton, she had such great points when talking to the Black Lives Matter Activist in an adult like conversation. She said “You cannot change peoples hearts” This is so true! You barging on stage and yelling is not going to make deep seated racist people change their ways.

 

Yes there has to be change in our communities. But we have to have a plan and this hunty isn’t working for me….
