A founder of Black Lives Matter answers a question on many minds: Where did it go?
By Ann M. Simmons and Jaweed KaleemContact Reporters


... Does Black Lives Matter even matter today?

I think Black Lives Matter is very relevant today, especially given the rise of white supremacists and white nationalists across, not just this country, but across the globe. And so our work over the last four years has been putting anti-black racism on the map, talking about the impact anti-black racism has on this country, has on local government, has on policy and how it actually impacts the everyday life of black people ...

I'm not that supportive of BLM or any thing done by the millennials.

This: talking about the impact anti-black racism has on this country, has on local government, has on policy and how it actually impacts the everyday life of black people.

We've always known about racism. We've been assaulted by this racism for ever. Was there ever a time Black people were not been impacted by racism.
Now, the millennials come along and act like they're are serving Black people something new.
Not a fan.
Where's all the money that's been donated to BLM?
Patrisse looks like a million dollars. From rags to riches on BLM funding.
Not a fan.
IMO, they do not represent even a mild threat to hate groups, or whites. They are discarded as frivolous to those who remember the CRM.
What I dislike most is their disrespect for older civil rights leaders. That will be their undoing.

In response, Jennings was suspended for the upcoming fall semester. He has also apologized.

So unnecessary.
