Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is trying to clarify a statement he made about whether white Americans can empathize with blacks. During Sunday night’s Democratic debate, Sanders said that "when you are white, you don't know what its like to be living in a ghetto, you don't know what it's like to be poor." The Vermont senator tried to explain on Monday."What I meant to say," Sanders said, according to an NBC News reporter, "is when you talk about ghettos, traditionally what you're talking about is African-American communities." What the senator doesn't seem to know is that white people, Hispanics, and others also live in America's ghetto's. What else he doesn't seem to know is that just because you don't live in an inner city tenement, doesn't mean where you live isn't a ghetto. From the trailer park ghettos of America to the Indian reservations, their are people of all shades living in ghettos across America. You don't have to be blind like Bernie to see that it's not just America's inner cities that have ghettos. I feel as if he is only trying to get the black vote with these comments. Once again leave it to a Democrat to say only black people face these harsh living conditions.
