48. I did not say they don't want things. But your approach is very paternalistic and suffocating.

 

We do know how to think and make decisions on what is right for us on our own. Most of us do not have a problem with Bernie on policy. Many of us find the paternalism to be the most infuriating thing. It pushes us away. Make us feel like people think we need them to do the thinking for us and just lead us to where they want us to be. Which is where they are. But if we bring up the gaps, then we have issues. It is not the policy. It is the delivery of the message that makes us sick, quite frankly. I actually had someone pretend to be black to try to win a debate with me on what black folks think. That was here. Recently. That kinda stuff? Turns us off. I'd rather have slightly worse policy than to be humiliated constantly by paternalising. I do have my dignity.
