15. I think you're confused about what people are saying

People are saying that it is possible to fight for economic justce, and make huge strides, but never get to social justice, and to leave people of color, LGBT people, women, etc. behind. That economic justice doesn't automatically lead to social justice.

I haven't seen anyone, not even very outspoken Clinton supporters, say that economic justice isn't also important. In fact I haven't seen anyone say it isn't just as important. Just that one will not automatically lead to the other.

I think people are at least to some extent talking past each other if you think anyone has said this.
