#BernieSanders: You’re White and Marched With Dr. King: So What? #ABLC

Modern AfroIndio Times

So fucking what?Isn’t that what liberals were supposed to be doing? You worked toward equality at a time when every decent person was working for equality.Maybe you walked a couple miles and learned the words to “We Shall Overcome.” Whoopty-freakin’-do! What else would you have been doing at the time? Supporting Jim Crow and segregation? Do you feel entitled to a clap on the back and a “Good show, old chap!” simply because when a bunch of white people were being assholes, you chose not to be one?Sorry, but you don’t get a cookie for not being an asshole.As a white liberal of adult age in the 1960s, you were politically required to do these things, right? And if the answer is yes—and we all know that it is—why the hell are you tossing Bernie Sanders’ record of doing them in Black people’s faces in order to shut down conversations…

  1. I don’t think you get it. People mention this because it demonstrates that Bernie has been a Civil Rights advocate SINCE then, not that he did that and then nothing else since. Bernie Sanders has been one of the, if not THE biggest advocate for Civil Rights, and for equal rights of all minorities (including the undocumented migrant community), and against institutional racism for his entire political career.

    Just a small sampling of recent speeches addressing this horrific problem:

    Bernie Sanders on ‘Racist History’ of the U.S. – Senate Floor June 24th 2015

    By continuing to attack the most outspoken member of the US Senate with a very strong record (even when he was speaking alone), it does a great disservice to him, it is extremely divisive, it demonstrates a lack of basic research on the subject, and only divides us when we need to be united.

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What it's actually like looking Asian with a far-right, anti-feminist white father, and a self-loathing Asian mother who hoped for privileged "white, blue eyed babies." An appraisal of fetishes and self-hatred.

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most strange, racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer white men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and white women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to white men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many white supremacists, alt-rightists, and white nationalists have Asian partners? Why do racist white men fetishize Asian women, and why do Asian women fetishize white men - and what does that mean for the children? Compiled by the son of a racist white father and a racist Chinese mother.
