“Last week, I tweeted that Bernie will lose the Democratic nomination because he lacks enough Black votes. A Bernie Bro responded with an article stating Bernie polled toward the top of the candidates with “people of color” (POC). I let the Bro know POC and Black people aren’t interchangeable. His response? “I stand corrected.”
Because the Bros never apologize for being wrong.”
I had a similar exchange with a Bernie Bro recently. He wasn’t feeling that I wasn’t feeling the bern. After getting frustrated because I wouldn’t budge from my “No black agenda, no black vote” stance, he called me selfish. My response? He’s selfish, if people like him gave a shit black people would have already been made as whole as possible.
“Black people” and “people of color” aren’t interchangeable. Ever.
This is a lazy way to converse about non-white races.
