You say black I say white
You say bark I say bite
You say shark I say hey man
Jaws was never my scene
And I don't like Star Wars

You say Rolls I say Royce
You say God give me a choice
You say Lord I say Christ
I don't believe in Peter Pan
Frankenstein or Superman
All I wanna do is

Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle

Does the drummer still coat himself in Tiger Balm when playing live?

@173, just curious..has ANY BLM organization ANYWHERE issued a statement condemning the Bernie protest? The answer is no.

That's because these women have just as much of a claim to BLM as anyone else. Just because someone starts the first FB page does not mean they run a Seattle chapter of an organization.

Perhaps if you looked in the mirror and LISTENED TO YOURSELF as you said in @153:

"The person organizing and running it claims to be "...the Black Student Union President here at Garfield High.". Just because there's a BLM banner and chant does not make it a BLM event. BLM can't just take over a high school auditorium to hold a meeting. That would violate numerous SPS statutes."

Alas libertine, your sleuth work solved the mystery. The Black Student Union President at Garfield and the 16-year old running the BLM Seattle website are one and the same.

And sadly she had to weather 100s of posts from outraged liberals about what a horrible thing she did. To the point where a 16-year old girl doing incredible things was shamed and bullied into changing the name of her page to escape the abuse.

But I guess Bernie had to change his page to escape the abuse too.

Great statement by Pramila Jayapal.

Imagine if there was no protest at the Bernie event yesterday. Imagine if nobody witnessed how quickly the white liberal crowd turned on the BLM protesters. What would we be talking about?

The news would be how Bernie has everyone excited to join his political revolution and how Ciara and Russell Wilson joined Taylor Swift on stage to the cheering throngs of Seattle's white tween community.

Nothing to see here, no race problem in Seattle.

We'd be all warm and cozy remembering how Bernie shouted, "Thank you Seattle for being so progressive!"

@131, yes it is privilege to be disappointed not to hear Sanders.

Sandra Bland, Mike Brown, Sam DuBose and thousands of others can not listen to Bernie because they are dead. That was the point of the protest.

Brace yourself for #BernieMatters and then things could get very interesting.
