Here’s the thing, Black people can’t ever be accused of racism because the very idea that a community that is continuously submerged under the filth of a mired past and problematic future, can somehow reclaim the disposition of entitlement against a system that was created for their dismemberment — is ludicrous.
Strategy is not complicated? Dead. Dying. Send paramedics. What Bernie meant to say is “strategy really is not complicated when you campaign like Donald Trump” because there literally is no concrete strategy. But what’s different here? How has Bernie changed his tune? What happened to identity politics are bad? Start listening to the middle class? BRUH, Hillary Clinton’s campaign slogan and platform couldn’t have been more inclusive if she tried #StrongerTogether. She literally is the first candidate to mention systemic racism and how we need to work to fix society FOR EVERYBODY.
Alas, we must continue. So what was the downside to Bernie Sanders staying in the primary? Well, we rarely talk about it but Bernie’s repeated attacks that Hillary was corrupt and in bed with Wall Street gave Donald Trump the Crooked Hillary™ narrative. Trump literally thanked him for it. The extended primary, which as i’ve said was already a festering sore for Bernie’s people by the end because they truly believed Bernie’s chances had been stolen in the middle of the night, meant that even AFTER Bernie dropped out and endorsed Hillary, many of the fiercest Bernie supporters decided to align with Jill Stein, Gary Johnson or worse still, Donald Trump.
