I wake up again to the erasure of #Bernie's POC and women supporters, and to the fiction that his voters are more toxic than those of other candidates.

When @leeladaou and I began supporting him, the venom we got from his haters was ugly.

@leeladaou Every personal attack we got in 2016 from #Bernie voters who we argued with in 2016 was replicated in 2019 by his opponents.

They mobbed and harassed us, impugned our motives and character with the EXACT same intensity as those they claim are "bros."

With one big difference...
@leeladaou When we reached out to #NotMeUs with an olive branch it was more than reciprocated.

The so-called "bros" we bitterly argued with in 2016 embraced us with open arms.

#Bernie's movement is principled and truly diverse. Erasing them all as "raging white males" is a travesty.
