Every so often a group emerges in American life which is so convinced they alone understand what must be done to secure the rights of a particular group. Once again, Black Lives Matter–all fifteen of them–interrupted a speech by Hillary Clinton to stand and shout at the tope of their voices: “Black Lives Matter.” Oh, Clinton was speaking about how to change the lives of those in prison, which certainly impacts the lives of black men, but, wha the heck, they continued to words. These individuals are convinced the way to change injustice is to speak WORDS.
Fortunately the audience which was mainly composed of Black Americans, shouted for silence. Eventually,those who spoke, departed. Black Americans want ACTION NOT WORDS. Those in this group have absolutely NO plan other than yapping away. They might remember that silence can be golden, at the appropriate time.
