Vermont’s Black Leaders: We Were ‘Invisible’ to Bernie Sanders

Vermont’s Black Leaders: We Were ‘Invisible’ to Bernie Sanders
By David Freedlander

He’s paying attention to the concerns of black America now, as a presidential candidate. Back when he represented Vermont? Not so much, local activists say.

Back in 2006, the Vermont Partnership for Fairness and Diversity, a Brattleboro area civil rights organization hosted a Candidate Night. The race for the open U.S. Senate seat between Bernie Sanders and Richard Tarrant, a Republican and one of the wealthiest people in the state, had grown increasingly acrimonious.

The audience of African-American activists and other Vermonters of color should have been a friendly one for the socialist congressman.

Instead, remembers Curtiss Reed, Jr., the executive director of the group, it became something of a showdown. Sanders “was just really dismissive of anything that had to do with race and racism, saying that they didn’t have anything to do with the issues of income inequality,” Reed told The Daily Beast.

“He just always kept coming back to income inequality as a response, as if talking about income inequality would somehow make issues of racism go away.


And since winning that race, Sanders’ approach toward Reed and his organization has been one of “benign neglect,” the activist added. “We are a major statewide organization. It would stand to reason that you would check in with your major constituents, but voters of color are simply not on his radar.”

So many Democratic politicians have been thrown under the bus at this point

It's hard to keep track.

“Your world is on fire!” Cruz wants terrified little girl to know apocalypse is here because...Obama

He's like an insane televangelist.



Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.) took an odd approach to riling up voters in a New Hampshire speech on Sunday — by shouting at a child. According to reports, at an event held by the Strafford County Republican Committee, Cruz attempted to convey the urgency of the American political situation:

“It’s now or never,” he said. “I don’t think we’ve reached the point of no return yet. But we’re close. We are close! And I believe if we go four or eight more years on this same path, we risk losing the greatest country in the history of the world.”

He continued: “And the Obama-Clinton foreign policy of leading from behind — the whole world is on fire.”

“The world is on fire?!” asked a little girl who was in the arms of her mother.

“The world is on fire,” he replied. “Yes! Your world is on fire!”


After a moment in which is bizarre fearmongering set in, he revised his statement. “But you know what?” he said. “Your mommy is here and everyone is here to make sure that the world you grow up in is even better.”

CNN Has Completely Given Up on the Meaning of ‘Breaking News’

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/cnn-has-completely-given-up-on-the-meaning-of-breaking-news/

Over the past year, we’ve seen CNN use its “Breaking News” Chyron to report that solving the missing MH370 plane mystery “could take years” and to tell us that the Titanic sunk 102 years ago, among other less than urgent stories. But this latest example just might be the best “Breaking News” ever.

After Washington, D.C. police banned sledding on Capitol Hill during today’s snowstorm, CNN sent Joe Johns out into the cold to report on the parents and children who were boldly defying those rules:
