2. Bernie Sanders got a dose of BLM, and took it pretty well.
On the other side of the political spectrum, we’ve got a candidate who's up for title of “Biggest Liberal On The Beach” (we ain’t even complainin’). We're talkin' Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. He had a thing or two to say about women after the Republican debate, too, but that's not what had folks talking this week. After his rally in Seattle was shut down by Black activists (thought to be representatives of Black Lives Matter like the protesters from last time, but later found not to be affiliated), all Left-Wing Hell broke loose. The talk of racial politics upset some Sanders supporters, who feel defensive that their candidate is facing criticism from other progressives. Now that the dust has settled, however, the politician seems less defensive than many of his supporters. It seems Bernie himself is #FeelingTheBern to reform his campaign’s message to be more inclusive of people of color, as the protesters asked. Clearly “screaming” pays off. Two big, fat thumbs up for you, democracy.
But, how is this a feminist story? Read here.
