14. That's nonsense

How many white Hoosiers are on various welfare type programs? The food stamp capital of the US is white. No one... repeat... NO ONE should be singling out African Americans for this discussion. It perpetuates the myth that welfare is a "black" thing and they're all just sitting around waiting for their checks from the government so they can go buy drugs and cadillacs. That's the Welfare Queen picture the right wing has painted for decades.

The fact is that Sanders and his campaign are tone deaf.
