    Dem Memo On "Best Practices" For "Black Lives"

    Dem Memo On "Best Practices" For "Black Lives"





    In a confidential memo to fellow staffers, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s diversity director last year outlined “best practices” when dealing with the "radical" Black Lives Matter movement, including the avoidance of phrases like “all lives matter” and “black on black crime,” which “anger BLM activists” and are “viewed as red herring attacks.”

    The November 2015 memo, authored by Troy Perry, notes that the document “should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building. Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings or over the phone.”


    The Perry memo was posted late Tuesday evening to the WordPress blog of “Guccifer 2.0,” the hacker who has taken credit for intrusions into the DCCC and Democratic National Committee computer systems.


    Since writing the BLM memo, Perry (seen above) has left the DCCC for a job with Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
    Noting that presidential candidates “have struggled to respond to tactics” of BLM, Perry advised that House candidates and campaign staff “should be prepared.”


    To that end, Perry counseled that “If approached by BLM activists,” staffers should meet with group members and listen to their concerns, but not “offer support for concrete policy positions.” Perry recommended that Democrats “Be a Partner & Lead From Behind” since leary BLM members “don’t want their movement co-opted by the Democratic Party.”


    On the topic of “Message,” the memo declares, “Do not say ‘all lives matter’ nor mention ‘black on black crime.’” These phrases, Perry wrote, “are all viewed as red herring attacks” and would prompt unwanted media attention and “only anger BLM activists.” Perry concluded, “This is the worst response.”


    Yeah. You don't want to make the children angry!

    I am happy to report that lately I've seen hand made signs in front yards in black neighborhoods here with large letters stating "ALL Lives Matter". Perhaps it was a suggestion from one of their pastors. I feel like hugging everyone of those home owners.  Very Happy

    Ditto!


    I was sure a lot of blacks realized how offensive that slogan is. Then again, the only reason the slogan exists is to be offensive. Great to hear that at least some blacks are fighting against it.
