Endorsement of Senator Bernie Sanders, from Michigan State Senator Bert Johnson
While the talk that history is in the making for the third consecutive Presidential election season, I am not buying fool's gold. Furthermore, I will not be participating; my vote and support is firmly behind Bernie Sanders. Sorry, wishful historians, but I'm a realist.
And here's what real about Hillary Clinton:
" She has made several critical tactical blunders, including the email scandal that has wreaked of arrogance and irresponsibility all at the same time.
" Her role as U.S. Secretary of State in the mishandling of the situation in the Middle East, including Benghazi, Libya cost American servicemen their lives and in the process, hurt their loved ones.
" She has more ties to Wall Street than some of the bankers themselves, which certainly will undo some of the progress made by the Obama Administration's banking regulation and reform efforts.
If that isn't enough, Clinton's most damning comment was revealed in January, when it was discovered that in 1996, she implied that gangs of kids are "super predators'' with "no empathy, no conscience''.
Super predators? As a lifelong Detroiter, black male and father of three boys, I was deeply humiliated and offended by Clinton's words because of what they implied.
In my mind, I wondered, "What kids? Inner-city kids? My kids?...'' These are the kinds of words that will not allow America to move forward from its racial past -- and present, and if there's something that we do not need in America is a Commander-In-Chief who is insensitive to a segment of the population.
