Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe he missed them, and maybe it was just beyond him.  He clearly means well, but too often seems like he doesn't have his heart in issues of race the same way he does regarding issues of class.  

That kind of line from Hillary is abominable, but I've read enough of the discussions on Kos to see that they are effective, and that there are many more people ready to respond to race and gender issues than there are for class issues.

Sanders seemed to be aiming for a message and a movement that put class and inequality first, and of course supported all those other liberal issues too.  Given what I've seen, I don't think that can work in the modern American political environment.  Racial and social issues need to be front and center, and pull class and economics along with them.

Unfortunately, Hillary seems to be focused on an either/or dynamic that puts her shady deals with the 1% off limits.  Such are the times.
