Because according to some on the board we're all lemmings who will follow any minority leaders endorsement no matter what our personal feelings about Bernie or Hillary. The condescension has gotten really thick around here lately.
But it seems that people really don't realize how a condescending tone does not help their case. Treating blacks as though they're children needing a good lecturing is not the way to win minority support for Bernie. I'm a grown man and I can use the internet just like anyone else. I know both Bernie's and Hillary's positions quite well, I just like Hillary better. I've made up my mind and my support for Hillary is not in jeopardy. What is in jeopardy is my support for Bernie if Hillary should lose. Bernie's supporters are really turning me off to this whole process right now.
We're more than awake and do not need anyone to point us towards reality, but thank you for your concern. Ben Jealous is his own man, and his endorsement of Bernie does not sway me in the slightest. I never really understood the whole endorsement thing anyway. I can make up my own mind without anyone telling me what to think.
