Sanders: ‘When You Are White…You Don’t Know What It’s Like To Be Poor’

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) said Sunday night at the CNN debate in Michigan that, “when you are white … you don’t know what it’s like to be poor.”

Sanders was answering a question about racial blind spots when he made the claim.

“When you are white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto, you don’t know what it’s like to be poor, you don’t know what it’s like to be hassled when you are walking down a street or dragged out of a car,” Sanders argues.

“We must be firm in making it clear that we will end institutional racism and reform a broken criminal justice system.”
