Sanders: Whites ‘Uncomfortable’ Voting For Blacks

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) had an explanation as to why the Democrat party was unable to elect more minority winners in the midterm elections on Tuesday: racism.

“I think you know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American,” Sanders told The Daily Beast, referencing the close contests involving blacks Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia.

“I think next time around, by the way,” he continued, “it will be a lot easier for them to do that.”
