The Democratic National Committee, which has not budged after numerous calls for more scheduled presidential debates, has approved a town hall that will feature Democratic presidential candidates and will be hosted by leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement. The town hall will focus on race-related issues and is being heralded as an opportunity for the Democratic candidates to address issues such as racism in America[…]
A petition has been posted by an organization affiliated with BLM demanding that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democratic Socialists of America:
allow for more debates amongst Democratic party candidates leading up to the 2016 election, specifically for a #BlackLivesMatter themed Presidential debate.
It is not enough to poll the Presidential candidates on whether or not they think “Black lives matter” or “All lives matter” – we deserve substantive responses – including and in addition to criminal justice reform, what will the presidential candidates do to ensure that Black lives matter?
We deserve substance and not rhetoric. In fact, we demand it….
“specifically for a #BlackLivesMatter themed Presidential debate….” Now, THAT IS RACIST. If an organization of representing any other ethnicity made such a call, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Cornel West and BLM would be crying racism and protesting this demand.
The demands by Black Lives Matter who met with the White House several weeks ago has nothing to do with Black lives; it is about politics, pigeon holing the Republican Party, ginning up the Black vote for the 2016 presidential election, the Progressive agenda and securing the continuation of his legacy after Barack Obama exits the White House.
WRONG ANSWER…AND STILL RACIST.
Progressives have nothing to offer Black Americans, their only interest no different than it was in 2008, 2012 or any other presidential election is racking up the Black vote.
Enter Black Lives Matter. Enter the race card.
ALL LIVES MATTER.
