55. This could be a teachable amount...

Putting aside the comments on the Sander supporters one of the failure of white progressivism or liberalism is the the paternalism and ethnocentrism they bought to their interaction with people of color, that they knew what was best for them.

The white folks who went down south during the civil rights struggles, some of whom literally became martyrs, deserve a special place in every person of good will's heart but many bought with them more than a small dose of paternalism and ethnocentrism.

That sentiment still lives on...Good intentions are good but they need to be married to understanding.
