Bernie Sanders shares vision for justice during first SC visit as presidential candidate



(snip)

At a political rally that more closely resembled a church revival with call-and-response moments — both planned and impromptu — the senator from Vermont outlined his definition of justice.

“Brothers and sisters,” Sanders began. “Welcome to the political revolution.”

(snip)

Four black South Carolina state lawmakers — state Reps. Wendell Gailliard, JA Moore, Krystle Simmons, and Terry Alexander — voiced their support of Sanders moments before he spoke, two of them opting to use prophetic terms.

Gilliard, a Charleston Democrat, said Sanders was a man with “a heart full of grace.”

1. Was the booing of John Lewis mentioned?

 

Any apology or atonement for that horrific spectacle?

7. We should always be alert.

 

And stay alert to racism.

John Lewis.



Congressman: 'I thought I was going to die' in Selma 03:13
Watch live coverage of ceremonies in Selma commemorating 50 years since "Bloody Sunday" starting at 11 a.m. ET Saturday on CNN and CNNgo.
(CNN)Fifty years ago this weekend, a 25-year-old John Lewis was beaten so badly by Alabama state troopers that they fractured his skull.

Lewis calls the Edmund Pettus Bridge -- where the troopers and and a group of white men deputized into a posse by the sheriff attacked hundreds of peaceful protesters on Bloody Sunday, March 7, 1965 -- an "almost holy place."

He nearly died here.

5. Ragnarok Lobster (@electricbrotha) on twitter reported, with a photograph.....

 

....that there was one African American other than the one on stage. The rally was held in a neighborhood that is 47% African American.



Was the rally in 2016 at the same venue?

9. They said there were more African Americans this time

 

Perhaps there was only one or none in 2016 ..... so ... factually accurate.
