Talib Kweli talks Bernie Sanders on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
The Hip Hop artist and activist offered some great dialogue about Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
While Sanders is considered a progressive candidate, many have criticized him for his insufficient platform on racial just. Last week, a group of Black Lives Matter protestors shut down Sanders’ speech in Seattle.
During his appearance on “Real Time,” Talib echoed that sentiment and added, “Just because somebody has a record of civil rights doesn’t mean they are automatically entitled to the black vote.” He added, “It’s very possible to be progressive and still have no understanding of racial issues.”
