Bernie Sanders’ supporters exposing racism among white progressives

That little four minute interruption of Bernie Sanders by two Black activists didn’t expose Sanders’ racism. That was already more than evident in his public support for Israeli apartheid & ethnic cleansing; his xenophobic opposition to immigration; his pugnacity toward BlackLivesMatter (BLM).

What that little interruption exposed in the torrent of abuse & witch-hunting against BLM is the indifference & disrespect of so-called white progressives to the problems & the scope of racism & their centrality to social transformation in US & international politics.

And people still question why many Black activists choose to exclude whites from their debates & organizational work?
