On #BlackLivesMatter:
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/.

We've [black people] been through so much for so many centuries, and we shall overcome this too.
While the media long ago moved on, the protests have persisted, entering their late, decadent phase of self-indulgent triviality.

"The Ferguson Farce", National Review, 21 October 2014, http://www.nationalreview.com/article/390782/ferguson-farce-rich-lowry.

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

"The kids are right to protest Trump", Los Angeles Times, 17 November 2016, http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-arellano-student-walkouts-20161117-story.html

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/.

We need to raise our voices, but we do not need to indulge in hate.
