The two sides involved in the topic. Sanders and BLM Seattle. They apologized and recognize that Sanders is on their side. What more do you want?


You missed a big portion of who is involved - the audience.
They didn't come to hear a couple blabbermouths hijack the mic podium and demand the audience be quiet for 4 1/2 minutes to pay respects to Michael Brown.
They were called racists by that young "lady" on the stage.
It was a pitiful tactic, insulting to everyone there.
I'm just amazed the audience tolerated it.
That shows you how strong the fear of simply being labeled a racist is.
They can apologize from here to eternity but it won't change my opinion of them one iota.

Judge for yourselves:

The big takeover:


Their Kanye West moment ( just love the arrogant look from the girl on the right):

I refuse to judge all by a few.

Not judging BLM.
Just these people in the video who are rude, arrogant and clueless regarding Mr. Sanders apparently.
Nobody else is responsible.
Some people will judge by the company one keeps though.
They didn't do the BLM any favors with this.

Just goes to show how weak Bernie and his followers are.... He gets hijacked and bows down to these idiots, then his followers actually obey what the dumb dumbs had to say... Pathetic, the whole lot of them...

More than anything I am amazed security at the event allowed them on stage. Rude , racist , protestor s is one thing. What if the next time it's an attempt on his life? I also have to wonder would they do this to Clinton and if security for her would allow it?

Not sure about that. He and his followers are damned if they do, damned if they don't. So, they took the damned they thought would work best. If they had stood their ground and forced them off the stage "possibly escalating this into violence," there would be people complaining that he and his followers just should have stepped aside and took the high road to deescalate the situation and avoid all the violence on the stage that would have been shown over and over on main stream media.

I'd like to see both involved unite and manage this right to really put even more momentum into motion on the issues.

They apologized.

Twitter account for BLM Seattle


They also issued another statement

Black Lives Matter Seattle explained their actions in a news release: “The problem with Sanders, and with white Seattle progressives in general, is that they are utterly and totally useless (when not outright harmful) in terms of the fight for Black lives. While we are drowning in their liberal rhetoric, we have yet to see them support Black grassroots movements or take on any measure of risk and responsibility for ending the tyranny of white supremacy.”

I think they will.

Well, one upside for Bernie:

More people are now aware of his record on civil rights, and his support for minorities.

I would wager my life savings that the average illegal immigrant is much more intelligent than the average black lives matter protester.

If a black president couldn't make changes even with a majority in congress that was satisfactory in the eyes of these blm protestors. If he couldn't use all his eo power to satisfy. What exactly is Bernie going to do that would ever make these types of people happy?

Shame on Bernie for not having all of Congress thrown out and the whole hierarchy of our government and economy while he was at it.
Yeah, if he really cared he would ended white supremacy by now.
A guy who's fought all his life for equality and fairness can't even get a B grade with these folks.
Sounds like they won't be happy until they get Django.

Eta: Other posters addressed the small matter of security.
A man who has a chance of being elected by the people for President you can just walk right up and get aggressive with and nobody is protecting him?
That's an invitation for disaster.

Nothing can make these people happy. They are so convinced that they are the only ones with problems, that they are the only ones being oppressed, and that they are the one and only true victims in the world.

Unfortunately this brainwashing, along with most having no real jobs, and social media at their fingertips, allows them to be the loudest voices in the room and people have so far up to now listened to them.

If the black community doesn't want the rest of the world to continue to look down on them, the intelligent and logical black people need to stand up and tell them to STFU.

There's a major communication breakdown. It will be resolved.

And what is that going to do? they should look in the mirror and see the stupidness on their part.
That would be a whole lot more than simply apologize until the next interruption or worse, a continuation of this stupidness which drives a wedge between the population.

I don't think there is. The only way they feel like they matter is when they feel like they are being oppressed.

Let me know if you don't understand that statement and I will clarify it for you.

I think that if I were scared that I'd become the next hashtag I might be feeling desperate enough to get in people's faces... not that it wasn't shortsighted to not try other ways. I don't like what they did but I won't denounce it either.
