#BlackLivesMatter activists — not to be confused with Black Lives Matter the organization, but rather the social justice movement of the same name that exploded across social media — met with Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton to discuss issues of critical importance to the Black community, specifically state-sanctioned violence.
After the meeting, which according to our sources, was productive, Clinton took up a challenge issued by a Twitter user to speak openly about race and racism, not just behind closed doors with Black “radicals.”
Clinton was up for the challenge.
Racism is America’s original sin. To those I met with today, thank you for sharing your ideas. -H https://t.co/ICqYepExxB
