President Barack Obama held a secret meeting on Wednesday, and his company is sure to anger many Americans still mourning the deaths of police officers in Dallas, Texas.
Black Lives Matter leaders spent three hours with President Obama Wednesday to demand action in regard to recent officer involved shootings.
DeRay Mckesson, one of the group’s most prominent figures, joined several other Black Lives Matter leaders at the White House to “bring up concrete actions” the president can take in order to appease its members.
“We are at the @WhiteHouse right now for a 3-hour convening w/ President Obama re: the recent events in #BatonRouge & across the country.” [email protected]
The White House blog, which lists out the president’s schedule, makes mention of a meeting with activists and law enforcement but does not specifically mention “Black Lives Matter.”
This isn't the first time Obama has met with Black Lives Matter, and it won't be the last. Despite recent events, the president isn't backing down from his support of the organization.
One of the members invited was Deray McKesson, who was arrested just days ago in Baton Rouge during a protest over the death of Alton Sterling.
