Remarkably, none of the Democratic National Committee's endorsed policy solutions include more accountability for the police who are committing the extrajudicial killings. The DNC would like us all to apparently show solidarity with the movement right up until there are demands made for justice.

Democrats are adept at folding social movements into their politics, and make no mistake: Any interactions between Hillary Clinton and other candidates for federal elections and Black Lives Matter activists will be handled in the same way party operatives have handled challenges from the civil rights movement in the past. Party leaders will seek to find some way to play ally to black activists and, more importantly, ensure Republicans cannot use the movement against Democrats in 2016.
