51. Sanders and Warren don't say that, but look at this thread, many people stridently insist that

 

social justice is secondary to and separate from economic justice. At this point there are no actual candidates with actual platforms, we have only supportive cohorts around certain persons.More than one straight white person in this thread has openly typed that civil rights and social equality don't 'mean squat' to them, their concerns are about finances. It is a Republican meme they present 'Money first, people second' but they wrap it up in verbiage about poverty but the message is 'your rights are of no concern compared to the financial well being of myself and my family'.
I'm sick of straight people speaking as if they understand the lives of others and of them being aggressively dismissive of those unlike themselves when we speak up. There is no way I will go back to that oppressive past just to make money for straights.
I'll gladly vote for Bernie, but Warren's cohort gives me the cold chills. They see Civil Rights as fodder for them to trade for financial rewards. Dangerous.
