President Obama Holds Meeting with BLM Activists and Police, Reports No Progress

July 14, 2016  | 

President Obama hosted a marathon meeting at the White House on Wednesday with police, Black Lives Matter activists, civil rights leaders, and elected officials, but emerged predicting more civil unrest in the wake of protests over shooting deaths of minorities by police and the assassination of five white Dallas officers.

The president came out of the nearly four-hour-long meeting unable to report concrete progress, saying “there are still deep divisions about how to solve these problems” of race, policing and accusations of excessive force, the Washington Times reports.

“There is no doubt that police departments still feel embattled and unjustly accused,” Mr. Obama said. “And there is no doubt that minority communities, communities of color, still feel like it just takes too long to do what’s right. We have to as a country sit down and just grind it out.”
