He started by writing “The ‘BlackLivesMatter’ movement is focused on the wrong targets, to the detriment of blacks who would like to see real change." He went on to write:

"Of course, the protesters are right that racial policing issues exist and some rotten policemen took actions that killed innocent people. Those actions were inexcusable and they should be prosecuted to deter such acts in the future.

But unjust treatment from police did not fill our inner cities with people who face growing hopelessness. Young men and women can’t find jobs. Parents don’t have the skills to compete in a modern job market…"
