A Black Lives Matter’s subreddit turned to private after it got overwhelmed with criticism for what happened at the Sanders event.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders spoke to a packed crowd Saturday night at the University of Washington campus about his commitment to criminal justice reform as liberal-huhwell as addressing income equality.

“When the crowd asked the activists to allow Sanders to speak, one activist called the crowd ‘white supremacist liberals,’ according to event participants.”

Sanders gave his talk to a cheering audience of about 12,000 inside a university pavilion a few hours after he was shoved aside by several Black Lives Matter activists who are calling for changes to the criminal justice system.

You all should be ashamed,” the statement read….(read more)
