Black Lives Matter Rejects Show of Support from the DNC

Supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement are distancing themselves from a Democratic National Committee resolution voicing support for their cause.

The Black Lives Matter Network said the resolution the DNC adopted at its summer meeting last week “in no way implies an endorsement of the DNC” by the group.

“The Democratic Party, like the Republican and all political parties, have historically attempted to control or contain Black people’s efforts to liberate ourselves,” the group said in a statement Sunday.
