    The 74-year-old Vermont senator isn't that familiar to African Americans, but he makes the case to EBONY.com why he should be

    It’s safe to say that most Black people aren’t all that familiar with Sen. Bernie Sanders. On the surface, he looks like a concerned 74-year old grandfather who has spent most of his political career serving the people of a state that is 95 percent White. But go a little deeper and you will find that there is much more to the man who some believe has what it takes to pulverize the political machine that powers Hillary Clinton.

    ... yvw Liberty. Sanders has been around awhile and participated in the Civil Rights Movement. Here's some additional information on Bernie:




    Integrity Disqualifies Sanders for White House


    ... “Bernie Sanders’s failure to become a member of either major political party excludes him from the network of cronyism and backroom deals required under our system to be elected,” said Davis Logsdon, a political scientist at the University of Minnesota. “Though that failure alone would disqualify Sanders, the fact that he is not beholden to a major corporate interest or investment bank would also make him ineligible.” ...

    How a team of Obama veterans helped Bernie Sanders pull in a record number of donations


    ... Sanders also reported more than 1 million contributions — more even than Barack Obama had pulled in during the early part of his groundbreaking 2008 presidential run. It was a major milestone for the Vermont senator’s Cinderella story campaign, proving he has both the voter base and the financial wherewithal to compete with Clinton ...

    How Bernie Sanders is reaching out to black voters. Is it working? (+video)

    Despite a strong record on civil rights, Sen. Bernie Sanders has had trouble connecting with many African-American voters.


    Bernie Sanders wants to show Americans that he can learn from his mistakes.

    The popular Democratic presidential contender and Vermont senator was widely panned for reacting angrily when Black Lives Matter protesters interrupted his speech at a Netroots Nation convention in July.

    Since then, Senator Sanders, who has acknowledged his weakness with black voters, has vowed to make amends.
