In the midst a spate of Black Lives Matter protests that put presidential candidates on the spot during speeches last year, a staffer for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee coached Democratic staffers on how to avoid antagonizing the group.
The memo, which was published on the web site of hacker Guccifer 2.0, provides step-by-step guidance on how candidates can avoid ticking off protesters.
'Do not say 'all lives matter' and nor mention 'black on black crime,'' it advises.
'If approached by BLM activists, campaign staff should offer to meet with local activists. Invited BLM attendees should be limited,' according to the memo.
'Please aim for personal or small group meetings. Listen to their concerns,' the memo advised.
