Question.... Regarding Black Lives Matters...

I understand there is a 10 point Manifesto....Is there an author to these points? If not....how were they adopted? A friend was asking and I'm clueless. DU is always spot on top of such issues.

Mckesson has been seen as one of the leaders in the Black Lives Matter movement although he claims only to be an activist.

He's been on TV numerous times to speak in regards to BLM.

Here's a brief video with Mckesson and some background on the creation of Campaign Zero and those ten policy points:
