Why Black Lives Matter Is in Trouble


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

Since he died early last week, news of McCarrel’s suicide has rocked the national police protest movement, forcing a round of introspection about a reality that predates the seminal 2014 shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo.: Some of the most prominent activists and organizers are battling not only the system, but depression ...
