Bernie Sanders White People

At last night’s Democrat debate on CNN, Bernie Sanders claimed that white people don’t know what it’s like to be poor. That’s not only racist, it’s stupid and untrue.

Sanders’s comment on white people and poverty creates social media stir

Bernie Sanders stumbled on a question at Sunday’s debate over whether white Americans can empathize with blacks, stating that white people don’t know what it’s like to be poor.

“When you are white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto, you don’t know what it’s like to be poor, you don’t know what it’s like to be hassled when you are walking down a street or dragged out of a car,” Sanders said when asked about his personal racial blind spots. “We must be firm in making it clear that we will end institutional racism and reform a broken criminal justice system.”

Sanders is an idiot.

It’s amazing that he has so much support.
