During an extended back-and-forth on race issues at the Democratic presidential debate, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said: “We have a racist society from top to bottom,” he claimed. He said it’s in the healthcare system, criminal justice, the economy, and everywhere else.
Bernie said “you name it” and racism exists in that part of American society.
“And clearly this is an issue that must be dealt with,” Sanders added.
“But in terms of criminal justice, what we have got to do is understand the system is broken, is racist.”
“We invest in our young people, in jobs, in education, not more jails, and incarceration,” Sander continued.
“We end the war on drugs, which has disproportionately impacted African-Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans. We end private prisons and detention centers in America,” Sanders concluded.

Twitter weighs in:
Is anybody else a sick of being told they’re a racist? Especially by politicians with a divide & conquer agenda? It is incredibly tiresome. My new rule: anybody telling me I’m a racist, that a certain race is racist, or that the country is racist will NEVER get my vote!

Every 2/4yrs you can bank on #Demcorats pulling out their trusty #racecard and insert it into every issue. It’s got to be beyond tiring as a minority to be used as a wedge like this, promised the moon, take their vote then ignore them til next election.

These are the same democrats that refused to stand & give applause for low unemployment rates in Black & Hispanic communities, would not respect 100 yr old Tuskegee fighter pilot, a young black girl wanting better school, a grieving hispanic man who lost his brother to illegal.

Every Democrat on that stage has zero respect for American exceptionalism. They all have one goal in mind; fundamentally transforming America into their own warped version of some completely government controlled utopia.
