Democrat Presidential Candidate Drives Racial Wedge


Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, addressed Iowa Democratic voters this past weekend, using the opportunity to reach out to black and Hispanic voters, saying that his campaign would be focused on “overcoming racial divisions.”

Sanders spoke of addressing  racial divisions, but then drove a deeper racial wedge by telling Iowans that he spoke for all of them.

Here is what he said:

Trending: Harvard Law student, others trash Antonin Scalia

“I know that I speak for all of you that we are sick and tired of reading about and seeing videos of unarmed African-Americans being shot… “We know that if those individuals were white, the odds are very strong that would not have happened to them.”-Bernie Sanders
