    I completely understand and empathize where you are coming from. Black Lives Matter finally released a “mission statement” if you will with the promotion for Black power being one of the first things they mention.
    Can you imagine if a group tried to promote white power?!
    They would be called racist and ridiculed.
    This is the Achilles’ Heel of the Green Party where it stands now. They are unwavering supporters of such a racist organization!
    Case in point – when they had the BLM March at the People’s Convention in philly they actually segregated the March, having all white people and white journalist march in the back. Can I , a white woman, in good faith vote for a party that seems to be so anti-white? I love Dr. Jill’s Stein and agree with her on many many issues. I am also a Bernie or Bust er. But, I do not feel as if I fit into the dynamic of the Green party as I am not anti-police, anti-Caucasian, so I have a hard choice to make to either vote libertarian or green this year. Just know Chris that there are plenty of other people with the same concerns and thoughts you have.
