GOOD magazine has published video they say is, “exclusive video of the exchange between the Democratic candidate and members of the Boston chapter of #BlackLivesMatter.”
Black Lives Matter is changing part of the conversation for the 2016 race for the White House. Several candidates have been forced to address issues around policing and justice reform as a result of Black Lives Matter forcing the issue. Just over the last week, candidates for the presidency including Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT), Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio have either commented on issues around Black Lives Matter’s issue set or have been asked about meetings being arranged with members of the group.
Yesterday, Sen. Sanders went swerving out of his way to say that he was “meeting with everybody” when asked on CNN and NBC about whether he would soon be meeting with Black Lives Matter activists.
