Facepalm: Bernie Can't Name One Piece of Passed Legislation That Helps African Americans

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) seems to think he's such a huge advocate for African Americans and the civil rights movement. There's just one problem with his assessment: he's been in Congress for more than three decades and he can't name one piece of legislation that has passed that benefits minorities. But don't worry. He supported Jesse Jackson when he ran for president in 1988, so, naturally, that means he's fought for civil rights in America.

"So, I think I have a long history in civil rights activism. In 1988 I was one of the few white public officials who supported Jesse Jackson for President of the United States and he ended up winning Vermont," Sanders told Charlamagne Tha God during an interview on The Breakfast Club. "I think if you look at my record, in terms of civil rights and other areas, you will find it is consistently a very, very strong work."

Charlamagne asked Sanders, point blank, "Any legislation we can point to?"

Sanders' response was sad and very telling.

"Well legislation that, ah, benefits African-Americans, yeah we passed, but not specifically. We passed legislation that benefits working people, sure," Sander responded.

To make matters even more ironic: Bernie has only successfully had three of his bills passed since he took office. And two of the three were naming post offices. Whoopty doo!

If Bernie was such a leading force in the Civil Rights movement, he would have drafted and sponsored legislation that positively impacted minorities. In fact, he could have developed the FIRST STEP Act before Republicans did. That's legislation that has made a difference in African American communities. And guess what? It's not because of Bernie, or any Democrat for that matter.
