Well many of you say you dont know Bernie Sanders, you dont Know anything about Him, I saw many negros dancing for Hillary at the Apollo yesterday, but never asked any questions, no wonder she has so many followers, because none of them cares but just want to act like they are in the plantation, so make no excuse today go meet Bernie sanders.
