VIDEO: 21-Year-Old Bernie Sanders Arrested Protesting Segregation

There has been some question as to Bernie Sanders’ concern for racial injustice. Of course, economic justice, which would most benefit minorities, is a lifetime calling for Senator Sanders. But, I do understand that for some, it is not enough.

Yes, that is a 21-year-old University of Chicago student Bernie Sanders being arrested in 1963 while protesting segregation, confirmed by the Sanders campaign

Now, I know one protest and arrest in 1963 does not prove Sanders is a lifelong champion of civil rights, but this new evidence does at least dispel the notion, put forth by certain Clinton surrogates, that Sanders does not care about black people. It’s clear Sanders has been a champion of equality all his adult life.
