Is it true that it is impossible for a white person to understand poverty, as Bernie Sanders claims?


Bernie Sanders says that white people cannot understand what it is like to be poor or live in the ghetto. Does he speak for you? I bet that he doesn't speak for the homeless white people at the traffic lights carrying signs begging for money. Aren't they supposed to have White Privilege? (note my sarcasm). What do you think? I guess a better way to phrase this question is, how stupid is Bernie Sanders? (I'm so sick of Sanders saying stupid stuff!)

    Probably....much to your dismay, Marguerite, once in a while, you and I agree.

    Actually they were his words (Check politifact), though it's obvious to anyone willing to think for half a second that he didn't actually mean white people cant be poor.

    That statement was absolutely taken out of context. I watched the entirety of that segment.

    He's not getting mine either. Between him and Hilary, there is no lesser evil. They both equally suck.

    She was not supporting Sander's comment and does say there are homeless white people. I've been there too
