OK..I'm ignorant about what "Black Lives Matter" is trying to accomplish. Who are they speaking to and what do they want? Is this some kind of Jesse Jackson reparations for slavery movement?

He is right. Of course, if Trump or some other conservative said this in the same type of forum, it would be all over the news as being racist.

Good ole Slick Willy got a little hot under the collar and yet he said the coolest thing I ever remember him saying.
Bill should just relax and take some time off to play his sax and sing the blues.
DNC summer meeting in Minneapolis, a resolution was passed in solidarity with the movement. BLM later rejected it. "The DNC joins with Americans across the country in affirming ‘Black lives matter’ and the ‘say her name’ efforts to make visible the pain of our fellow and sister Americans as they condemn extrajudicial killings of unarmed African American men, women and children," the solidarity resolution states. The day after the resolution was passed, BLM activists in Minneapolis chanted, "pigs in a blanket, fry em' like bacon," as they marched down the street. This rhetoric also came just one day after the execution of Texas Sheriff Deputy Daron Goforth while he was filling up his patrol car at a local gas station.
“Today, we live in a time when the white man will be picked off, and there’s nothing he can do about it. His day is up, his time is up. We will witness more executions and killing of white people and cops than we ever have before.” “It’s about to go down. It’s open season on killing white people and crackas.”
