Symone Sanders to CNN: 'We Don't Need White People Leading the Democratic Party'

by Cathy Burke
(United States)

The former spokeswoman for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is calling for diversity at the top of the Democratic National Committee – declaring "we don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now."


Current CNN contributor Symone Sanders criticized Howard Dean's attributes for the party executive spot – calling out his "maligning" the senator from Vermont and some of the supporters of his presidential bid.

"Howard Dean is also on record maligning young people and millennials — telling those Bernie folks they just need to get in line — and maligning Bernie Sanders. And that is not what we need," she said.

A video of the exchange was posted by Mediaite.

"In my opinion, we don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now," she added. "The Democratic party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in our leadership and throughout the staff, at the highest levels."

Mediaite noted in a separate interview, the former Sanders spokeswoman also spoke dismissively of a confrontation in Chicago, where one attacker said to a beating victim: "It's one of them white-boy Trump guys."

"What do you say to the people who dragged a poor white guy out of a car and beat him?" CNN panelist Carl Higbie asked Symone Sanders last Monday.

She replied: "Oh my goodness, poor white people. Please."

Is this really the mindset that the Democratic party needs? I agree that the party has been a huge disappointment to the black community and they should be angry.

However, this tone and attitude communicated by this young lady will do nothing to heal the hurts of the past. Venting frustration and anger onto "innocent" people is not the answer. That's pure hate and revenge and will be met with stiff resistance from those who are being attacked. That much is sure.

The ideology of the Democratic party has been erroneous for decades. It's been an "us versus them" and "you can't trust white males" platform for too many years.

Yes, it's time for blacks to get off the Democratic plantation and roam the open plains of a free-market, opportunity-laden, conservative ideology that benefits everyone that is willing to dream and work hard to achieve that dream.
