10 Signs The Masses Are Ready To #FeeltheBern (4)

2. We Need A Candidate Who Has Humanitarian Experience, As Well As Political Experience

“Everybody knows what’s happening — who wants to know,” Bernie Sanders wrote in June 1972 in Movement, an irregular Liberty Union Party newsletter he edited. “A handful of people own almost everything … and almost everybody owns nothing. A handful of people make the decisions and the vast majority of people have virtually no control over their lives.” Dating all the way back to the 1960s and ‘70s in Vermont, a formative time for Sanders, the message of the surging socialist presidential candidate has been startling consistent. “The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, and the vast majority in the middle are having a harder and harder time,” he said — in 1974, and ever since. Above, 1963: Economic justice has been the central focus of Sanders’ 40-plus-year political career—as a young activist at the University of Chicago, though, Sanders agitated more for racial equality. In 1963 he was arrested during a demonstration protesting the city’s segregated schools. He also traveled to Washington—his first time in D.C.—to hear Martin Luther King speak at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

 On top of being in politics since the 80’s, Sanders was also a major advocate for the Civil Rights Movement during his time in College. He was a member of the Congress of Racial Equality, where he participated in a sit in against racial segregation of off campus housing. He also participated in the March on Washington in 1963. Of course, we need a politician with actual political experience, but one look at the hatred and violence surrounding a Donald Trump rally should be enough to tell you that that is not enough.
