April of 1971, the SCOTUS ruled public schools could use busing to achieve racial desegregation in schools

1974 Bernie Sanders claimed busing to provide equal education created racial hostility "where it previously did not exist"

Why criticize Biden?

How can Bernie Sanders or his campaign criticize Joe Biden?

At the time, Bernie Sanders saw children being attacked and his response was -

Busing is causing racism?

That's bullshit and it's 100% in keeping w Bernie's claim that racism can always be blamed on someone else
The press? Never covers the misogyny & racial insensitivity of Bernie Sanders

Bernie's book using the N word as he excuses racism, was just re-released late last year

Always an excuse for racism. The corporation made me do it

Bernie Sanders wanting the voted of people who won't vote for a black candidate

That feeling of being "uncomfortable" is not racist according to Bernie. WRONG

A profound lack of understanding & leadership on race

I find it disturbing & odd. Flat wrong

Tone comes from the top

Is there any person who would say this during a discussion w a black woman?

If any other candidate said this to a black woman during a townhall?

Old grandpa pass?

Bernie Sanders:

“I said ‘black’ 50 times. That’s the 51st time"

Why do so many white people like Trump? He sends signals he will always elevate white, straight, Christian people. What about Bernie?

Bernie Sanders saying Democrats are to blame because racists didn't vote for President Obama? wtf

Listen to this

Bernie Sanders talking to students about stereotypes in Vermont in 1987:

“When I was a young person what we learned is that black people smelled. They had a special odor. Ok? That’s what went around that black people smelled & they were pretty stupid.”
Very bad judgment. This is not how you teach about sterotypes
Bernie Sanders is hardly the one who should criticize anyone about racial insensitivity
Joe Biden is far & away the favored candidate for the Democratic nomination among black Americans, boosted by his personal popularity, his service in the Obama administration & conclusion that Biden is best equipped to defeat Trump & steady the country
