23. Yeah, I read an article this summer that Sanders is to

black liberation as Kim Kardashian is to the publishing industry - I had no idea she'd written a book to even follow the analogy. Just enuf effort to include on his minimal resume about us. It's only here that's being bantered about. So they can just go to their quiet rooms mumbling to each other about the other reality they live in, that Sanders was at the front of the issue when he's proven several steps back every step of the way. I think it's the desperate throwing everything out there hoping something will stick.

From here to kingdom come, black activists, writers, intellectuals, and every day people like us are refuting the ignorant ravings of insane people trying to rewrite history as it's happening.

I don't think Sanders lacks awareness. As I've said previously, he's not in this to win. His reactions/behavior are just too unsual to me for a block he needs. But either way, he or Clinton will have no choice but to mitigate a terrible situation to keep the GOP out, and I'm all for that.

Plus, I really think all of these fabrications are a way to piss us off because they have no control over the scenario, while their candidate is trying to evolve in the reality that exists in a positive way. Afterall, he hasn't said it recently and is moving away from his sparse record he staunchly thought validated his creds. It's too bad that all of this is about an election because I'd readily believe him. His supporters are working at odds with him and that's what's baffling. And why it's a perfect way for them to continuously unleash their frustration on a voting block they thought they could depend on, and know are inherently socialists but can't control.

All I can say is what else you got? What is next in, as you aptly put it, Bernie So Black scenario?!?!? Ugh, sickos, what's next to be beat down?
