    While Bernie Sanders has now been protested twice, there seems to be a willingness to overlook Hillary Clinton's past on the topics of race and gay rights. Black Lives Matter is a noble organization that has brought much needed attention to profound issues; however, recent protests ignore the fact that Clinton's political career runs contrary to many of the organization's stated objectives. Aside from the fact Hillary Clinton recently stated "All Lives Matter" in a speech to a historically black church in Missouri, below are five legitimate reasons why Black Lives Matter should also protest Hillary Clinton.

    1. Hillary Clinton's 3 a.m. ad in 2008 contained a "racist sub-message," according to Harvard sociologist Orlando Patterson.
    2. Hillary Clinton waited close to three weeks to address Ferguson. Why?
    3. Bill Clinton recently apologized for his 1994 crime bill and his role in the mass incarceration that has disproportionately affected African-Americans.
    4. Black Lives Matter is also heavily focused on gay rights. Hillary Clinton was against gay marriage up until 2013.
    5. Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2008 not only ran an ad accused of having a "racist sub-message," but a black leader in the House of Representatives denounced Bill Clinton's attacks on Obama.

    She could give a fcuk! Mr. Sanders, actually cares so that's why he's a target. Easy, nice guy will fall prey. President? Neither!

    These radicals should go and disrupt her events since her political track record is one of hypocrisy, distortion, and false promises. Why they are giving Hillary a free pass that she doesn't deserve makes no logical sense.
