I’m glad we put to rest that only non-whites are allowed to criticize those who protest. By non-white I assume she meant “African-American” not black. In any case I, as a white person, have definitely been put in my place.
I suppose that if she has her way white folks will have to shut up for the next 400 years to make up for the alleged atrocities we perpetrated on blacks since Columbus landed.
Maybe its my white privilege showing, but I don’t intend to shut up. I have as much right to protest and criticize as she does. Of course, everything I do and say will be considered racist but….that argument as been worn a bit thin. No one believes it any more and pretty soon there will be a real backlash. It may not be pretty.

You have a duty, an obligation to the President of the United States of America to leave a situation where people were basically giving the middle finger to the men and women who fought and protect this country.”Sanders responded, “That is false and you should be ashamed.”
