3. Our Missiom

http://blackmenforbernie.com/ourmission/


Our Mission
The mission of BLACK MEN FOR is to inform our nationís citizens, with emphasis on the black community of candidatesí histories and work, as elected officials and public servants.

Black Men For Bernie is a call to action for black men to come together, join the fight with others, and take responsibility for their families and communities, at large, by having a seat at the table.

If we do not begin to take action and stand firm with individuals willing to fight for our rights, individuals like Bernie Sanders, Hillary becomes the result; someone who would rather do the Nae Nae to get your vote, than tackle issues destroying black families across the nation. When children are murdered or simply not educated, it is too often the mother or grandmother having to stand up for them.

While America has over-time continually mistreated and abused blacks (African Americans) ó both men and women, many young black men are being systematically uneducated, brainwashed by intentionally created illusions, and led to dead-ends that donít sustain our diverse families and communities. To make matters worse, unfortunate cases of black politicians, pastors, and absentee fathers continue to decimate our collective ability to thrive with greed, violation of trust and selfishness.

these guys don't seem to be perpetually offended by sanders. i was asked: what kind of black person are you? when i posted about taking no offense to ghettogate. i am THIS kind of black person: one who is focused on real issues.

42. From their own website....

Bernie has been supportive of black communities and people of color for a very long time. Well guess what, white is a color too

Smell something?

What has he done for POC directly since 1960s ? Can't find anything on his website.

44. The mission statement doesn't really argue why Bernie is better than Hillary.

I think it could be much improved.

7. Big, strong, truth-telling man using logic and winning for Mich. AAs.

 

He gets down to reason, evidence, why you're voting for a candidate.

The other man was planning to vote for Hillary because she "says" she'll do this and do that, but truth is, Bernie's been fighting for social justice and civil rights his entire life. Never stopped, never will.

22. Sanders did capture approximately 30% of the AA vote in Michigan...

...which is significantly higher than the proportion of the AA vote he has been getting .... so this (and other efforts) did have a positive effect.

25. It is something he has to work very hard for .... but all candidates should have to wok hard...

... for every vote.

The onus is on the candidate to earn the vote. We (collective voters) owe candidates nothing.

31. He has AA support in spite of all the BS to the contrary

35% in Michigan. I suspect that percentage will hold or increase in the mid-west, west, and east.

32. K & R. Great. The Bernie Campaign must NOW create & circulate an AD featuring

his many supporters including black folks. Real soon, TYT Cenk Uyur said last night and I wrote here on March 2.

*Include Nina Turner, Ben Jealous, SC State Rep. Justin Bamberg, Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte, Killer Mike, Spike Lee and others.
