The Libertarian Party presidential nominee, Jo Jorgensen, decreed that it is not enough for Libertarians or Americans “to be passively not racist,” and they must instead “be actively anti-racist,” using the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter, only to be met with sharp criticism that led her to further clarify her remarks.

After initially endorsing Black Lives Matter, which as an organization is formed by a coalition of activist groups that share political and ideological goals and sometimes funding sources, Jorgensen eventually backtracked and clarified that her remarks are not an endorsement of the organization.

“It is not enough to be passively not racist, we must be actively anti-racist,” wrote Jorgensen on Friday afternoon, adding the Black Lives Matter hashtag to her tweet.

Hours later, after receiving backlash from libertarians and Republicans, Jorgensen backtracked and clarified that “#BlackLivesMatter means standing in solidarity with a mourning black community as we fight together to end qualified immunity, police brutality, sentencing disparities, and the war on drugs.”

“Not support of any ‘organization’ by that name,” added Jorgensen.
