27. You live in such a Manichean universe

that your opinions are weak sauce for many that read DU regularly.

You appear not to like nor respect many of us here.

Sanders evidently cared and was involved in civil rights issues back in the 1960s.

For you to state that Sanders "trying to do it in a matter of weeks or months, and it's just not working" is two figments of your imagination that you state as "truth" when the statement is truthiness.

How can an admitted "outsider" even make such a generic declaration about the diversity that identify as black voters (or any identifiable social group)?

The Clintons long term trend against economic justice plays into the prejudice of those that gain and support institutional racism as their birthright.

You type propaganda, often not anything of particular value or information.

Most of us have votes that are earned or not earned over years of watching and living our political process.

I am white and never presume to speak for or read the minds of people that Identify as black but I do know that my votes and life attitudes and actions have evolved but have also been consistent in the over-riding idea that we are equal and deserve a fair society and that it is up to all of us to make that moral stance real.

Ron Dellums is one of my favorite politicians of all time. I first learned of him in high school when I lived in the East Bay Area and was anti-war during Vietnam. I voted for Dellums numerous times in the 1970s and 1980s. He is an anti-war social democrat like Sanders, not a neoliberal like the Clintons who support our military empire.

"By 1990, Sanders was a leading member of Jesse Jackson’s National Rainbow Coalition, and the following year he founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus with the help of fellow revolutionaries Ron Dellums and Maxine Waters."

What you stated about Sanders and the Black communities is not true.
