GOOD Magazine has published video they say is, “exclusive video of the exchange between the Democratic candidate and members of the Boston chapter of #BlackLivesMatter.”

Black Lives Matter is changing part of the conversation for the 2016 race for the White House.  Several candidates have been forced to address issues around policing and justice reform as a result of Black Lives Matter forcing the issue.  Just over the last week, candidates for the presidency including Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT), Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio have either commented on issues around Black Lives Matter’s issue set or have been asked about meetings being arranged with members of the group.

Yesterday, Sen. Sanders went swerving out of his way to say that he was “meeting with everybody” when asked on CNN and NBC about whether he would soon be meeting with Black Lives Matter activists.

  1. Black Lives Matter; Take Pride In Parenting; End Our National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect

    Speaking At The Eulogy For The Honorable Reverend Clementa Pinckney, President Barack Obama said:

    “Perhaps it causes us to examine what we’re doing to cause some of our children to hate.”(Applause.)

    With all due respect to Ms. Patrisse Cullors, her colleagues and supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement, I believe she would better serve all Americans if she were to honestly, openly and compassionately address the National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect that for decades has deprived untold numbers of depressed children from experiencing and enjoying a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.

    I’d respectfully suggest she share a conversation with Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar and learn why he has been suffering from depression for most of his childhood and adult life.
