Black Lives Matter asked for a Democratic Debate devoted to racial injustice. They have been offered a Forum. I hope they accept. Whether it’s a Debate or a Forum, all the candidates will want to back BLM. National awareness will become national seriousness.
On Wednesday, the Democratic National Committee invited activists from two prominent groups within the Black Lives Matter movement to organize and host a town hall forum on racial justice for the party’s presidential candidates.
