When you're white, you don't know what it's like to be living in a ghetto," Sanders concluded. "You don't know what it's like to be poor. You don't know what it's like to be hassled when you walk down the street or you get dragged out of a car. And I believe that as a nation in the year 2016, we must be firm in making it clear, we will end institutional racism and reform a broken criminal justice system


This is all a lie. He is speaking about the entire white community and that is 70% of the country. About 12% of the country is black. 65% of the country is about 180 million people. You mean to tell me that out of those 180- million no one is poor? No one has the electric shut off? Eats Ramen noodles six times a week and the other day they just don't eat?

Pulled from a car? I have been asked out with guns drawn. It is caused precaution. There is no broken criminal justice system. There is a broken system at home...and in the community.

BOTH Party's know that the best way to control us is to keep us at each others throats and it works. It will always work as even when people know it's being done to them they join in.


It's called identity politics.

The entire practical aim is just that.

To keep us fighting between ourselves. Racism, and class warfare are especially effective.


The only solution I can see, is for serious third party candidates with a following to take power. To do that they would need to get in even before the D's & R's get going in an election cycle. Take the power away and change the dialogue.

I can't see that happening as it is though. We humans are too easily led by our noses using emotion as a tool to control us.


I agree to a point but in all seriousness, I don't remember how many times out of fear or just selfishness I have seen people who supported a certain candidate be called "uneducated"?

Sorry, but for those who are educated, they should realize we still have 535 congresscritters and senators that can pretty much block any attempt of "Hitler" to destroy the world?

So yea, sucks I wasn't stupid enough to go in debt to the toon of 20k, for a piece of paper that can't even get me a job flipping burgers, but one man or woman being elected won't do squat to clean the corruption on the Federal level, when on the state level we worship the guy/gal that cut that ribbon that just created 200 jobs? Forget about the thousands lost, "Re Elect DUR da DUR they brought our state 200 jobs that those people lucky enough to get will still be eligible for food stamps?

The President is the least of our worries, we still have a bunch of prostitutes in the house and senate that have their red light shining brightly for the highest bidder *lobbyist* who is willing to have a night of fun......

i wouldnt call trailer park people trash. i also wouldnt call trailer parks ghettos either. you can redefine things, like you always do, but you wont get away with it while im here.

slavery means owning another person as property.

also, you forgot the real reason people are slaves. because the reptilian overlords have infiltrated our media and education systems. obviously.

this thread should be shut down, bernies words got taken completely out of context

he was speaking about a conversation he had with a blm supporter who told him...

"You don't understand the degree to which we are terrorized. ... I'm just talking about everyday activities where police officers are bullying people," Sanders recounted the woman telling him.

"When you're white, you don't know what it's like to be living in a ghetto," Sanders concluded. "You don't know what it's like to be poor. You don't know what it's like to be hassled when you walk down the street or you get dragged out of a car.

Quoted in loving memory of context.

Trailer parks like GHETTO's are mixed races.

However they get described as 'trailer trash' by so many.

The funny part there is most 'ghetto's' are in predominately urban socialist utopia's.

Is that correct?

Not around here. Just about all the trailer parks in the "valley" are full of Palin supporters. She was their neighbor, after all.

I don't believe since Sanders says white people don't know what it's like to be poor.

its not about low income housing, id rather live in a closed community trailer park than in an urban ghetto where hookers, violence and drugs are a plenty.

i live in california. ive seen trailer parks and ghettos many times. there is a world of difference.
