Agreed. His whole point was about institutional racism, not that white people have never suffered being poor. Context people!
I find it humorous that Trump can say things like "Mexico is sending us all their rapists and murderers", and his supporters defend it by saying we are taking it out of context, but when Bernie says something, context goes out the win-dow.
According to a stunning Fusion investigation, 80 percent of women and girls crossing into the U.S. by way of Mexico are raped during their journey. That’s up from a previous estimate of 60 percent, according to an Amnesty International report.
while many of these girls are fleeing their homes because of fears of being sexually assaulted, according to the UNHCR, they are still meeting that same fate on their journey to freedom.
Rape can be perpetrated by anyone along the way, including guides, fellow migrants, bandits or government officials, according to Fusion. Sometimes sex is used as a form of payment, when women and girls don’t have money to pay bribes.
Pro-war crime will get you thunderous applause.
