• DNC Endorses ‘Black Lives Matter;’ Hear What Do Dem Prez Candidates Say

    The Democratic National Committee passed a resolution on Aug. 28 endorsing Black Lives Matter at its summer meeting last week.

    Despite the outreach, Black Lives Matter is having none of it.

    The activists assert that the Democratic “political machine” has historically “attempted to control or contain” black liberation.

    “A resolution signaling the Democratic National Committee’s endorsement that Black lives matter, in no way implies an endorsement of the DNC by the Black Lives Matter Network, nor was it done in consultation with us,” the group said in a statement.

    “We do not now, nor have we ever, endorsed or affiliated with the Democratic Party, or with any party. The Democratic Party, like the Republican and all political parties, have historically attempted to control or contain Black people’s efforts to liberate ourselves.”

    Black Lives Matter protesters have interupted campaign events held by Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley, and each candidate has since incorporated “black lives matter” into their stump speeches to appease the group.
