The Power of Black Twitter! Thank you, Don.. @AngryBlackLady's not playin..

Imani Gandy ‎@AngryBlackLady

If I see one more Bernie acolyte mention that he marched with MLK, I'm going to burn the Internet to the ground. @EdDescault @Eclectablog
4:23 AM - 19 Jul 2015

That @AngryBlackLady tweet, sent out to her 35,000 followers, inspired Roderick Morrow—who runs the “Black Guy Who Tips” comedy podcast with his wife, Karen—to launch the mocking hashtag #BernieSoBlack:

Morrow, who goes by @rodimusprime on Twitter and has more than 11,000 followers, said he was surprised his impromptu hashtag suddenly took off. “I just thought it was a funny joke!” he told The Daily Beast. But he added that his lighthearted jab was rooted in a serious concern about Sanders’s candidacy.


Absolutely, Nance.. and President Obama should have been primaried in 2012 like bernie wanted..

Bernie Sanders: Let’s primary Obama


"President Obama is under attack these days from all manner of nasty conservatives who don’t care for his liberal, big spending ways. They seem to have found an unlikely ally, though, in the person of the only officially declared socialist in Congress… Bernie Sanders."


"So I would say to Ryan discouragement is not an option. I think it would be a good idea if President Obama faced some primary opposition."


Sanders really had his finger on the pulse of the Nation.. so endearing to the Black Community and people like me.

And, now he's running against President Obama's legacy.. good luck with that Bernie..

Obama, Dean, McCarthy: What Presidential Candidate Does Bernie Sanders Most Resemble?


".. First, Sanders is running as much against Obama’s legacy as against anything pertaining specifically to Hillary Clinton. Second, all the revisionist history in the world won’t erase the fact that Obama, despite his strong appeal to liberal activists angry at HRC’s vote for the Iraq War, had a trans-ideological and even bipartisan appeal that Sanders is too consistently credentialed to rival."


Oh yes, freshwest.. there was action all over the net about this from the Black Community..

but, so many on DU wanted to just make it go away and silence those who were asking questions. Accuse them of calling Bernie a racist.. which couldn't have been further from the truth..

"If your plan for building a left victory in the US isn't grounded in the fight against race and gender oppression you're an idiot. Period."

And, now it's just exploded with #BlackLivesMatter at NRN.

to Angus Johnson and to you, fresh!

Especially the Blacks ones.. "If you show up in #berniesoblack to derail it or shut it down instead

of listening, you're proving our point."

Really. thank you, 1StrongBlackMan~ Edit to add your quote..

"Kind of like this? ...

I spent 50 years of my life fighting for civil rights and dignity, but if you don’t want me to be here that’s OK. I don’t want to out-scream people.


That is a good response. He said "we already know white lives matter!"

Barack Obama is officially one of the most consequential presidents in American history


Mahalo arely!

I can only empathize with all my heart.. Alicia Garza tells us how she feels..

"Back in Oakland, Alicia Garza is reflecting on how much has happened since her original Facebook post, which became the hashtag that launched a thousand protests. Progress has been made, she says, and yet there is so much further left to travel.

“I have to be honest,” she says. “I feel like I live in a constant state of rage and I think a lot of black people do… It’s more than depressing to me. It makes me angry, particularly when people try to deny it’s happening.”

Mahalo su for this vital history of how #BlackLivesMatter was born into a "new civil rights movement".

No, "any politician" would not have cancelled the meeting afterward. Martin O'Malley didn't.


Good thing it's just DU and not the whole country.. for our country's sake..
