Hillary Clinton denounces Bernie Sanders for his pointing out that gun violence is “an urban problem”. “Why, he’s talking’ ’bout black folks,” the one who would be king deduces, “and that be racist”. This from the same lady who recently instructed “the rest of us” to “give up our white privilege and turn in our guns.
But demonizing and disarming white people won’t do anything to solve gun violence: Sanders is entirely correct: Gun violence is a black problem, and it is a major problem in the areas where young black drug dealers live: the cities.
So is Bernie Sanders a racist for pointing this out, or is Hillary consciously trying to appeal to their mutual liberal base that hates guns, period?
