    Black Lives Matter Coalition Makes Demands of Presidential Platforms
    By YAMICHE ALCINDORAUG. 1, 2016

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/02/us/politics/black-lives-matter-campaign.html

    More than 60 organizations associated with the Black Lives Matter movement have released a series of demands on Monday, including for reparations.

    The release of the six demands comes a few days before the second anniversary of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., which set off months of protests and led to a national conversation about police killings of blacks.

    Marbre Stahly-Butts, who is part of the leadership team of the Movement for Black Lives Policy Table, which worked on the demands, said: “On both sides of aisle, the candidates have really failed to address the demands and the concerns of our people. So this was less about this specific political moment and this election, and more about how do we actually start to plant and cultivate the seeds of transformation of this country that go beyond individual candidates.”

    “We seek radical transformation, not reactionary reform,” Michaela Brown, communications director of Baltimore Bloc, another participating group, said in a statement. “As the 2016 election continues, this platform provides us with a way to intervene with an agenda that resists state and corporate power, an opportunity to implement policies that truly value the safety and humanity of black lives, and an overall means to hold elected leaders accountable.”

    As part of the effort, the groups are demanding, among other things, reparations for what they say are past and continuing harms to African-Americans, an end to the death penalty, legislation to acknowledge the effects of slavery, as well as investments in education initiatives, mental health services and jobs programs.

    It's a good thing this group has actually come up with a list of things they want, which can be discussed and debated openly

    I might actually listen to what they had to say if they accepted the fact that the biggest problem in the black community was the breakdown of the family unit

    Yeah, because all the existing programs are being taken full advantage of by black people.

    This reminds me of those times that ETM would give Howard his "list of demands" which were just as preposterous as this list from the terrorist BLM scumbags. Robin would ask him..."Hey Eric, what will you do if we don't give in to any of your demands?". ETM would then reply..."Uh, I'm not sure. I haven't thought it out that far yet." LOL!

    Guess what assholes...YOU'LL GET NOTHING AND LIKE IT!
