During the Democrats’ presidential candidate debate on Tuesday, Feb. 25, Bernie Sanders showed his racism, and the liberal news media didn’t even blink. Sanders said, “And I’ll tell you what else we’re going to do, we’re going to provide help to the African-American, Latino, Native American community to start businesses to sell legal marijuana rather than let a few corporations control the legalized marijuana market.”
My interpretation was, if minorities are going to sell and buy drugs, let them sell and buy legal drugs.
I was shocked and angered because it was a racist comment, and other Democratic candidates and the moderators from CBS News let him get away with it. No one pointed it out nor asked him to explain it.
Democrats have always had a racist view of minorities in America. They have segregated them openly and directly as in Jim Crow, and indirectly “to preserve their language and culture.” They also lower standards for achievement because their expectations for minorities are low, such as affirmative action, which reduces rules for minority participation.
Apparently, to socialist Bernie Sander, who doesn’t believe in private business, selling and buying drugs, is this the extent of his view of minorities’ entrepreneurship. Will he next encourage legalized prostitution and robbery?
Democrats, especially socialists like Sanders, do not have a moral code, and legalizing criminal behavior is their best way to address crime. Rather than raising the standards of acceptable conduct for minorities, they lower social expectations and decriminalize criminal behavior.
When we treat people as they are, they remain as they are and don’t progress. When we treat them with higher expectations, and as if they are what they could and should be, they will become better people. They will have higher standards for achievement and life.
All Americans, including minority leaders, should denounce Sanders’ and the Democrats’ “soft racism” which excuses and encourages bad behavior. It cripples minority achievement and progress.
CBS News and the rest of the liberal news media should stop viewing minorities as victims. They should also reject the explanation and narrative of “soft racism,” which excuses and encourages criminal behavior to be acceptable.
America is the greatest nation in the world because it was built on the ethic of hard, honest work. Minorities and all Americans can use that ethic to achieve and progress.
