Black staffers asked Bernie to give a discrimination speech in a big city. He declined

It is possible Bernie did not want to alienate the predominantly white voters white independents who didn’t view discrimination as a big issue.

“Over seven pages, the team outlined a strategy for winning black voters that included using social media influencers and having Mr. Sanders give a major speech on discrimination in a city like St. Louis or Cincinnati.

Mr. Sanders’s inner circle did not respond."
