13. Get out your wading boots! You are about to be bombarded with black and brown faces all touting

Sanders' virtues. No endorsement will be too small!

These people will SCOUR the web to find brown folks touting Sanders. We saw this the milisecond black people started saying "why doesn't he discuss issues that directly affect minorities?" or "why are there so few brown people supporting him?" All of a sudden, this board was screaming about the delightfully named BlacksForBernie Twitter feed and its whopping 180 members!!!1

You can see it on DU too. The 2-5 brown people that will disavow the rest of us not to mention the THOUSANDS of brown people on social media that are questioning Sanders' automatic pivot to economic issues over race will be given all the +1s and the recs. You just watch. It's happening already.

These folks denied or flat out lied about the polls after polls after polls that said that Bernie has made no impression in minority communities despite 25 years in Congress. They have tried to run off and minimize every brown person here that's said that his discussion of only economic issues will not garner him support in the AA community. Now, BLM and Black Twitter have flat out EXPLODED with black people very clearly, very loudly saying the same thing we've been saying for months and these people are still saying it's a Hillary conspiracy, Rove tactics or whatever. They are beyond all hope and really have no business on a Democratic web site.
