Apparently, Lyndon B. Johnon’s War on Poverty succeeded. At least among white people.
According to Bernard Sanders, if you lack a certain amount of melanin in your skin, then you have absolutely no idea what it’s like to be poor.
Because poverty is racist. Or something.
Here’s what the Bolshevik from Burlington said at last night’s Dem/dumb debate: “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.”
So clearly, if you are white and you don’t have much money, you are something other than poor.
I anxiously await Mr. Sanders to give us the word we use to describe Caucasians who are out of work and don’t have a lot of assets.
Because, obviously, we can’t use the word “poor” to describe those people.
