    WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) — A labor union--and its corresponding super PAC--endorsing Bernie Sanders for president was hit with a wave of social media backlash Wednesday night after it tweeted about a session on "talking to black women about" the Vermont Senator.

    having read the article, i fail to understand the backlash...but there are sensitive forces out there, who take anything said to court. black men talk about how to communicate with black women all the time. i know that's on a different level, but it wasn't even his conversation. besides, any white man from vermont need a lesson or two on how to talk to anyone black; there're almost no black people in vermont.:)

    i'm not necessarily a supporter of bernie, as much as i'm not in favor of hillary.

    but, anyway, where do you stand on this violation of communication protocol?

    He was born and raised in New York. But, you feel some comradeship in not knowing how to talk to Black women also? Is that what you are saying?

    My take on it was... Because, the candidate claims to have such close ties to the AA community, this just proves he is lying. These photo-ops of him with AAs are contrived.

    I am in agreement with you. I would never vote for Hillary. I wish there was another choice, but there isn't, so Sanders will most likely get my vote.

    see...always misunderstanding what i'm saying.

    what i'm saying is...that particular committee isn't the only one who needs "instruction" on how to talk to women. as far as politicians who lie...what's new about that? that's what they do. lawyers and politicians are notorious for that.

    what would you lecture on?????

    in a class of men, you could try to explain why so many women appear angry when a man approach them.

    or

    you could talk about the miscommunication that's happening between the sexes.

    or

    you could help men to understand why women think men have to think the way they do...instead of the way men do.

    or
    .

    .

    i could go on.:)

    I like the first topic.... they are all great. People in Texas say they can tell I am from somewhere else as soon they see me, because I am always smiling. (I am from Cali)
