"Sort of. The thing about the Bernie Sanders fans is while they're very obtuse and they don't listen

..they are more polite than the people who just call you the n-word or a racial slur or something. It's more like that passive-aggressive "We're on the same side, man!" where clearly they don't want you to talk about anything that their candidate can do better, but they do want you to just vote for him."

Thanks for the link, Janey

"..but the civil rights movement!" response isn't just irrelevant, it's insulting." yes, it has

been.. as witnessed by the Black Community online elsewhere and at DU.

Hillary was talking about racial inequality on June 20, 2015 in San Francisco at the Conference of Mayors..



Started out talking about the massacre in Charleston that had just happened.. and making good eloquent case for common sense gun laws. Receiving a standing ovation!

"We need to tackle this problem With urgency and conviction. Mentions President Obama kindly 3 times.

"..Take racist violence head on.. struggle with racism is far from finished.."

"Race remains a deep fault line in America.. states racial inequality.

"Can't hide from hard truths on racial injustice.."

Poignant story about about Debbie Dills.. I didn't know that.

Encourages "Cities against racism.. and preventing gun violence.."

We have to be too "Too busy to hate" "Need more love and kindness in this country."

No wonder Hillary is doing so with the African American Community on the whole.. she really speaks to them.

"She declared, "yes, black lives matter," a mantra of demonstrators around the country who have

been protesting recent grand jury decisions not to indict white police officers involved in the deaths of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and in New York."

Thank you for the link, Don

Exactly, Janey! And, NRN stands with #BlackLivesMatter..

Next year Netroots is going to be in St Louis..

"In a statement, Netroots Nation Executive Director Raven Brooks stood with the protesters. “Although we wish the candidates had more time to respond to the issues, what happened today is reflective of an urgent moment that America is facing today,” Brooks said. Next year’s conference will take place in St. Louis, close to Ferguson, and local leaders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement will be directly engaged, Brooks added. “We plan to work with activists there just as we did in Phoenix, to amplify issues like racial profiling and police brutality in a major way.”

Oh wow.. is that a little sad fest for Sanders.. :( #BlackLivesMatter.. get over it.

GD good thing that poster got a HIDE for that. Just couldn't help himself.. had to call those dedicated, beautiful people "thugs".

Oh and Netroots Nation Stands with the Protesters.. #BlackLivesMatter..

Next year Netroots is going to be in St Louis..

I've been reading about Rod Morrow but I haven't seen this article.. thank you!

"Vox spoke to Morrow on Sunday evening about why he wasn't impressed with Sanders or his online fans.."

Another snip//

And it seems like any time black people bring this up on Twitter, there's all these people who, I don't know, they're just sitting around searching his name on Twitter or something, they just come and get in your mentions and start harassing you, they start saying the same things over and over to you, like, "He marched with Dr. Martin Luther King," and, "He was at a sit-in," and they send you a picture of him at a sit-in from 1960-something. That's all well and good, and I'm not denigrating that work, but it's almost as if they're trying to say, "You shouldn't expect him to continue this" or, "Because he's done stuff in the past, you shouldn't question him now."

If I see one more Bernie acolyte mention that he marched with MLK, I'm going to burn the Internet to the ground. @EdDescault @Eclectablog

That @AngryBlackLady tweet, sent out to her 35,000 followers, inspired Roderick Morrow—who runs the “Black Guy Who Tips” comedy podcast with his wife, Karen—to launch the mocking hashtag #BernieSoBlack:

Which I thought was a funny joke. It's like they're almost trying to outblack us. "Oh, you're a black person, what could you possibly understand about our candidate? He was marching before you were even born!" Okay, that's cool, but you gotta stay on top of it. So I made a joke that's like, "Bernie's blacker than us! Bernie's SO BLACK!" That's how it feels when they come into our mentions and tell us that we don't know what we're talking about, and even though [Sanders] doesn't talk about #BlackLivesMatter right now, we should just kind of shut up. So I was just like:

I love this guy!



Netroots Nation stands with the Protesters..and your callous dismissal is a big part of the problem

Morrow, who goes by @rodimusprime on Twitter and has more than 11,000 followers, said he was surprised his impromptu hashtag suddenly took off. “I just thought it was a funny joke!” he told The Daily Beast. But he added that his lighthearted jab was rooted in a serious concern about Sanders’s candidacy.
