1. this is one of those things

...that just grates on folks.

I don't know Spike. I'm sure he's a nice guy, but I don't identify my politics with Spike Lee.

I don't agree with the premise that blacks aren't 'woke' to Bernie. This fellow looks to be in a learning phase. Many folks out here don't need 'black intellectuals' to school us on 'liberation theology,' or lectured about reparations. In so many ways, these prominent black professionals are talking past their black peers, looking for, and gaining self-satisfied encouragement from non-blacks sold on the notion that blacks aren't educating themselves enough to appreciate the wonderfulness that is Bernie, and the supposed awfulness of Hillary.

It's all so goddamn condescending that it's no wonder Sanders is doing so badly among this important voting bloc.
