    The solution is certainly NOT alienating the fucking back bone of your party and the engine for change in order to Molly coddle and absolve racist for their racist feelings.

    So you're saying instead of white people stop being racist, the POC should just suck it up and take it?

    Sounds hard.

    He literally saying the opposite.

    That CurrentAffair article was a bit disingeneous.
    Talking about Clinton's Crime Bill in the context of 2016 without talking about how Sanders voted for it and campaigned his reelection based on his vote while saying that somehow Sanders was the candidate of minorities when minorities pretty much preferred another candidate is really weird.

    Bernie Sanders is like the white "liberals" in Portland Oregon and Eugene Oregon. They are so ignorant and out of touch with racial issues it's unbelievable .When you confront them when say and do racist things they get defensive and deny they are racist just like he did now. This sort of blind liberalism can go fuck itself.

    Feel like this is him posturing for swing states for a presidential run. Still a terrible take, but I think Bernie realizes there are degrees to racism given his other statements on the subject.

    IMO, Bernie needs to sit it out an let young people run

    You're extrapolating out a step too many - this is just the posturing he normally uses to avoid pissing off the electorate in Vermont.

  28. I agree with the vast majority of this, but I’m quite sure that quite a few people itt really do believe he’s virulently racist and not merely tone-deaf in his messaging on race

    I think everyone is over thinking the entire statement honestly. You all act like it's IMPOSSIBLE for someone to be uncomfortable while not hating. Not everyone who is scared of dogs thinks they're horrible.

    No, and double no

    At this point the good thing about the virulently racist is that he is aware of his bias at least.

    Thats true, but also would make sense strategically in a presidential run. However after seeing Donnely and Mccaskils results I think your better of just firing up the base instead of reaching across.

    The most forgiving explanation is that he is hilariously out of touch with racism because he's never had to endure it personally.

    "Uncomfortable while not hating"? Not liking dogs? Jesus christ the excuses people come up with to forgive themselves...

    It's not edgy, you just have little idea what racism is. As evidenced by your other post.
     
  37. Yeah. The point of his comment was that otherwise well meaning people can get swept up in hate campaigns, especially when all of the cable news channels are feeding into it, which I find to pretty uncontroversial. But people in this thread are acting like he said "racism isn't real. White candidates only."

    No we're mad because what he said was not voting for a black person cause they're black isn't necessarily racist.
     
  39. I wonder whether if I looked through that recent Joe Donnelly thread I’d find people rationalising what he said about ending birthright as good political strategy who are now in this thread not giving the same benefit of the doubt.

    I was making a comparison and the first thing to mind is someone's fear of dogs. I know someone who loves dogs but is genuinely afraid of them after one bit her a child. Just because you can't comprehend a comparison doesn't mean you need to be a dickhead and build yourself a moral high ground.

    You honestly need to stop comparing not liking black people in power to not liking dogs. It don't come off great mate.
