politics-junkie: vox: Why this black Bernie Sanders delegate says he doesn’t have the luxury of going “Bernie or Bust.” Every night of the Democratic National Convention, Pastor Ray Shawn McKinnon and his friend Sebastian stayed up talking well past 3 am in their Holiday Inn hotel room. The two met last summer volunteering for Bernie Sanders in North Carolina, and soon became close friends. McKinnon, who is black and 6'1, calls Sebastian, who is white and 5'2, his “pint-sized conscience.” Over 14 months, they were inseparable allies: canvassing, phone-banking, and organizing for a common cause. But now they’re at odds — and trying to make sense of it. Sebastian says he can’t bring himself to vote for Hillary Clinton. But McKinnon can’t believe that his onetime allies, including Sebastian, hate Clinton so much that they would risk a presidency McKinnon thinks would be a catastrophe for minorities — including his four black sons. “If Donald Trump wins, he’s more likely to appoint judges who oppose Black Lives Matter and criminal justice reform, and who think that police officers — who can kill black people without being charged — already don’t have enough power. That means if my kids get shot, the officers who did it would become less likely to be charged,” he says. “This isn’t theory for us. It’s reality.” It’s only a risk unless you live in a swing state.Why are people baffled when others don’t share the same viewpoints as them?  “Trying to make sense of it”?  Really? This is what happens when neo-liberals use the language of identity politics. This notion that a black person or any POC HAS to like Clinton or that being a leftist and a POC are in direct conflict is so condescending, and it really irks me. It erases agency from POC and is more harmful than good.: Bernie 2016 I SUPPORT PALESTINIAN H UM AN RIGHTS politics-junkie: vox: Why this black Bernie Sanders delegate says he doesn’t have the luxury of going “Bernie or Bust.” Every night of the Democratic National Convention, Pastor Ray Shawn McKinnon and his friend Sebastian stayed up talking well past 3 am in their Holiday Inn hotel room.
