Black Lives Matter flexes its political muscle in Democrat presidential race
Following the charade during the Netroots Nation 2015 Presidential Town Hall held at the Phoenix Convention Center where candidates Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders were shouted down by Black Lives Matter activists, top DemocratHillary Clinton has vowed to take up the mantle of race and social justice.
“We all have a responsibility to face these hard truths about race and justice honestly and directly,” Clinton told a crowd of 400 supports at Brookland Baptist Church in West Columbia, South Carolina on Thursday.
“We have worked hard to come back from the Great Recession,” Clinton said. “With President Obama’s leadership and the determination of the American people, we are standing. But we need to start running together.”
Clinton apparently learned a lesson from the experience of former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley who said during the Netroots shoutfest that “all lives matter.”
