8. Agreed...

They are young people, and they have been watching some horrible things happening, just like we have. When people are shot down just like that, for nothing, can you imagine How traumatizing that must be for these young folks, especially those who fit that description? Most who were raised to believe that this country has made great strides in the race relations.

And then in response to their frustration, there met with batons, tear gas, and armored vehicles! I know it activated my daughter into activism for sure!

So I understand her point, I just don't understand where it goes from here… She didn't seem to have that part figured out. She should've been negotiating for a meeting to discuss the issue further, but they were only interested in getting film footage, because the whole point was to try to get more black voters supporting Sanders, and nothing more.

When Cornell West is involved you can guarantee that whatever is going to be accomplished is going to be petty.
