    Bravo, Rev Sharpton. Bernie is the real deal.

    Hilary Clinton ran against Obama. He was running as the first African American candidate and Clinton wanted to win against him. She didn’t seem to have any issue cheating African Americans out making such profound history. She wanted to win against him and said the same things about him as she is saying about Bernie. Same tactics. The only reason she is wrapping herself in Obama’s legacy is to win African American votes and Obama’s endorsement.

    Bernie Sanders has always aligned with social justice issues. He has always spoken out for civil rights. It’s just that he did it quietly, as a citizen, and in his own way, not using African Americans to win votes like the Clintons.
