6. I'll tell you.

 

Stop lecturing black people on Dr. King and civil rights. Stop the paternalistic stuff. Stop telling us whats best for us. He needs to meet face to face. Hire some black staff to do social media. Go visit black churches and eat with the people. Go to a quincianera. Go on Jimmy Kimmel and read berniesoblack tweets (we love shit like that). His supporters have to stop acting like know it alls and constantly telling us that 'he marched with king before you were born!' Stop tweeting out bitter recrimintation to black twitter and Elon. Stop pretending everything is all goid with Bernie and Blacks. Hold a damn rally in a black area. Plenty more but I think you get it. Oh, listen to what the few black people still left here say. DU is a bubble and just cause you see Bernie stuff on the rec list it does not mean he has a bunch of support. Stop talking at black people about economic justice because we want social justice first so that we can live long enough to get the money. Realize racism is a probem and so is liberal racism. Stop telling us to go to republican then, like white liberals own the party and we are just here on sufferance. Realize that without us you lose.
