This country has had too many straight, white old men presidents. We need something new, diverse, while Bernie is more of the same.

Electing Bernie Sanders would make him the 46th straight, white, old man in a row to be president. Why do you so called progressives want this trend to continue, when many younger, women and people of color candidates have the same policies he does, or in some cases even better policies? Bernie has more of an imperialistic foreign policy as evidence by his support for NATO, support for invading Yugoslavia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Somalia. Does the international proletariat not matter? Foreign policy is a huge reason why Tulsi Gabbard should be the preferential candidate to yet another old white man. She's diverse in her background and her ideas. She can bring people of varying sects together. With Bernie, he only attracts millennial whites, hence the sexist and racist Bernie Bros of 2016. He cannot motivate a diverse crowd like Tulsi can.

Tim Pool:”I was a fan of Bernie Sanders until he said white people don’t know what it’s like to be poor.” Joe Rogan:”That’s hilarious, go to WV and visit the fucking coal miners.” WVian here. He DID, and it’s on video. He asked white people from WV’s poorest county to explain poverty on camera.

Tim Pool was on JRE a couple days ago and said the above statement. Rogan assumed what Pool said was true and just ran with it. What's hilarious is he brought up WV, my home state, and said Sanders should visit to learn about poverty for white people.

As someone who followed Bernie for a long time, I can attest that he visited West Virginia many times, and he visited our poorest county, McDowell, 3 times. He hosted 2 events drawing attention to poverty in the area, both before and after those "white people can't be poor" comments. I think the gaffe in question was really him badly phrasing an argument about ghettos. Ghettos are definitionally racial creations. It’s true that white people in America don't know what it's like to be poor members OF A GHETTO. That's different from saying white people can't be poor in general.

It's not possible that Sanders would believe there was no such thing as white poverty, BEFORE, DURING(this one's a 1.5 hour seminar almost on poverty in WV's southern coalfields. And Sanders makes it clear the point of it is to give the people of McDowell a voice), and AFTER his presidential run(and that gaffe), he has been drawing public awareness to one of the worst areas for white poverty in the country. More than that, he gave the people of McDowell a microphone and asked them to speak about their own experiences relating to living their lives in poverty.

People should give others the benefit of the doubt if something is said at face value that contradicts everything they've stood for before and after what was said. I think Sanders's comments were just a gaffe resulting from clumsy word choice. I think context + Sanders's clear history prove he believes in white poverty and is concerned about it. Finally I think some lazy-minded people looking to confirm their own pre-conceived biases screened Sanders's word choice to make him look like he didn't care about poor white people, when that's obviously not true.

According to the data tabs on the relevant question here are the Sanders numbers: 13% among men vs 8% among women 9% among liberals vs 11% among moderates and conservatives 9% among people under 50 vs 11% among 50 and older 7% among whites without a college degree vs 15% among those with a college degree 10% among white voters and 10% among non-white voters

There is no more detailed age breakdown but we know what it would show. There is no data on non-white voters with or without degrees. There is no data about social democrats, leftists, or socialists because they only go to liberal.
