How Democrats are Navigating Black Lives Matter


Racial justice concerning the Black Lives Movement came center stage during the Democratic presidential campaign this week when candidates Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley were met with protesters as the Netroots National town hall. How are the Democratic candidates navigating issues of race and justice and keeping their base happy? Michael Duffy of Time Magazine, Dan Balz of The Washington Post, and Jonathan Martin of The New York Times explain the movement’s impact in the 2016 race for the White house.
