Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders left a campaign event in Seattle without giving his speech Saturday after "Black Lives Matter" activists took over the podium, NBC News reported.
Two women approached the podium just as Sanders began addressing the crowd of several thousand, and demanded the microphone. Sanders stepped aside, and one woman got into an argument with an organizer, shouting "We are angry!"
After being given the microphone, and after the crowd booed, one of the women said, "I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is ... but you already did it for me."
It is the second time in a month that activists protesting racial inequality have interrupted an event featuring the progressive candidate.
