Vice’s Toure: ‘We’ as Black People Struggle With White Supremacy

Saturday on MSNBC, Vice magazine columnist Toure explained how Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ message on class does not resonate with black people because their problems include “dealing with white supremacy and white privilege.”

“For a lot of black people, that message doesn’t resonate because we understand our problems are greater than class. Our problems are about dealing with white supremacy and white privilege. Those things are not superseded by when you get a good job or get into the middle class or even the upper class. So, he’s not dealing with a central problem for us. We understand that this class-based argument is not — it leaves us cold a bit because it’s not the entire story.”
