I am getting the sense that Sanders supporters are grasping at straws to explain the fact that the Sanders camp can’t seem to get significant numbers of people of color to vote for him. There is no Clinton machine conspiracy. The message that economic inequality is the root cause of racism just isn’t resonating.
Do you think this will be enough to satisfy the Sanderistas? Or will they demand nothing less than John Lewis abjectly kissing Bernie Sanders’ ass?
Because, honestly, I am more and more convinced that anyone who keeps pushing this attack against John Lewis does not have the best interest of progressives at heart.
