Bernie Sanders’ domestic policies more clearly match Black America’s left-leaning politics – but they will still reject him in favor of Hillary Clinton, who Blacks think has a better chance against the Republicans. At any rate, Sanders is no prize. He is “incapable of challenging his own party and president on domestic economic policy, and has no substantive objections to Obama or Clinton on foreign policy.”
“Sanders cannot divorce himself from – or even cease praising – the president and the party that has been a full partner in creating the economic devastation he so dutifully cites at every campaign stop.”
There is nothing transformative happening here, especially regarding Black politics, which is strangled and mutilated under the same duopoly system that straitjackets Sanders (if he really needs a jacket).
The action is in the streets.
