On #BlackLivesMatter:
We should not have to protest. We’re in the street because police have killed people.
Perhaps the most insidious assault on Black Lives Matter is that the protests have somehow caused violence against police. [...] The only thing Black Lives Matter has caused is a national conversation about police accountability.

"Black Lives Matter occupies an important space," Boston Globe, 1 September 2015, https://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2015/09/01/the-message-black-lives-matter/EPjIfUd95BeSHyXGthJ9KM/story.html.

The killings [of Philando Castille and Alton Sterling] by police in Minnesota and Louisiana, quickly followed by killings of police in Dallas, knocked the lazy certainty out of almost everybody.
On Donald Trump:
We need to raise our voices, but we do not need to indulge in hate.

"Meet the Press - November 13, 2016", NBC News, 13 November 2016, http://www.nbcnews.com/meet-the-press/meet-press-november-13-2016-n683211.

The struggle is not a struggle that lasts one day or a few weeks or a few years. It is a struggle of a lifetime.

I would not advise people who feel strongly or who are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised during the course of the campaign, I wouldn’t advise them to be silent.
