Bitter Lake Presents Soundwaves Ep. 11: Bernie Sanders and the Black Vote Reconnecting Black Radical Traditions
In this episode I was blessed enough to get former bank regulator, now financial director Nina Qualls-Mendoza, and Tonya Love District Director. I can't lie, I was a bit disheartened by the results from this past Tuesday's primaries. What I hated most was the narrative the Bernie Sanders doesn't connect with black voters, while Joe Biden, a man who has a HORRIBLE RECORD with the black community is the go to choice because he was VP under Obama. Hearing that same story over and over again, on mainstream media, I know that the casual black voter might even start to believe. it. We often hear, "People want a return to normalcy". What is "normalcy" under a Biden presidency; especially when he was a part of the administration that gave us Trump? We also discuss black women's role in leading radical movements.
Always, thank you guys so much for listening, if you haven't already become a patron and get all the bonus content and even more FREE STUFF!!
