John Lewis Softens His Stance on Bernie Sanders - EBONY.com [View all]

This article is brief to the point of being rather vacuous. But I found the following reader comments quite more edifying:

John Lewis Started out a young man working for the people. He is now part of the rich black elite in Georgia.
He is so far out of touch with the people he would not know what to do if he had to do a grass roots election.
That's what big money does to the people we hire. They speak for someone before they do the home work.

Too late. I have lost respect for John Lewis. He did try to disparage Bernie.

Having a respected historic significance can be totally diminished by your current behavior. John Lewis flip flopped in his initial endorsement of Hilary when she ran against Barrack. He only endorsed Barrack because he realized Barrack was destined to win. His character was compromised then. His tears of joy when Barrack won weren't real. And now he and the rest of the sorry black establishment are selling out their community by blindly endorsing Hillary again (because she's expected to win) but they (and the liberal media) are living in a Hillary subsidized campaign finance vacuum. Hillary will lose because the black vote is fractured (young and conscientious vs. old and static). I will enjoy all of those sell outs crawling back to Bernie. No love John Lewis. What happened to you John, you used to be beautiful.
