24. This whole thing is making me ill

 

Yes Sanders has a problem winning support from AA voters. he came from being 85 percent unknown by the American public. Black, White, Hispanic....a lot of people have no clue who he is or what he's about.

And The Clintons have cultivated that segment of the Democratic base for decades (though their policies have been far from supportive at times).

And Bernie can come across as a cranky old white guy. Easy to misunderstand if you don't know what he's really about.

So yeah. It's an uphill battle. But don't perpetuate this bullshit that he doesn't give a shit about the AA community or that he isnlt working hard to earn their support. That's crap.

And it''s being racially divisive by implying it.
