On #BlackLivesMatter:
In these times of crisis, we, as a community, must allow room for multiple conversations and solutions [in the #BlackLivesMatter movement].

"Let's make room for other forms of resistance in the #BlackLivesMatter movement", Crain's Chicago Business, 25 November 2015, http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20151125/OPINION/151129888/lets-make-room-for-other-forms-of-resistance-in-the-blacklivesmatter-movement.

We need to keep saying ["Black Lives Matter"] so that people accept it.

Lauren Victoria Burke, "Full Transcript: Hillary Clinton Convo with #BlackLivesMatter", Politics365, 18 August 2015, http://politic365.com/2015/08/18/full-transcript-hillary-clinton-convo-with-blacklivesmatter/.

The problem [reflected by the protests] lies not just with the police but the entire apparatus we call our system of criminal justice.
On Donald Trump:
I think that people are saying, 'Mr. Trump, we have come too far in this country fighting discrimination and bigotry. We’re not going back. And if you’re going to continue that effort, you’re going to have to take us on.'

Susan Page , "Sanders backs Trump protests, questions Electoral College", USA Today, 13 November 2016, http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/11/13/sanders-backs-trump-protests-questions-electoral-college/93767186/.

Protesting might make you feel better, it might win a few battles and it might attract attention. I’m sorry if you are angry at “the establishment,” but you need to work for it and within it if you want it to change.

Anne Applebaum, "Advice from Europe for anti-Trump protesters", Washington Post, 16 November 2016, https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2016/11/16/advice-from-europe-for-anti-trump-protesters/?utm_term=.0b470a4ebdd3

[Student protesters] putting themselves out there so publicly, with their future on the line, is worthy of adult support.
