    Interesting perspective, Marjorie



    Why Black Lives Matter Is in Trouble


    The end is nigh for #BlackLivesMatter—and its leadership doesn’t even see it yet.

    DeRay Mckesson announced last week in a soporific Medium post that he is running for mayor of Baltimore, and the general response has been a collective cringe. Mckesson is one of the Black Lives Matter activists with the most promise, but by attempting to leverage a social movement into a political force for good, he’s likely headed for trouble ...

    We all would like to see our elected leaders more involved. I would like to see us more involved, but......

    This movement must be turned into a political action

    Why the Congressional Black Caucus endorsement of Hillary Clinton is a really big deal

But she randomly assigned some to receive the additional information that an association of black political leaders was endorsing one of the candidates. The result: an increased likelihood for blacks to vote for the endorsed (white) candidate ...
