2571100Washington Examiner:

Refusing to be coopted by any political party, members of the Black Lives Matter movement Monday dismissed a Democratic National Committee endorsement.


"The Democratic National Committee won't bring the changes we seek," said a statement from Chinyere Tutashinda of the Center for Media Justice.


Her statement said that the Center speaks for the Black Lives Matter Network. It was also posted on their Facebook page.

On Friday, the DNC approved a resolution endorsing the Black Lives Matter Movement. Some members of the movement have criticized Democrats for not offering bold enough policies to solve police shootings and poverty.
