Bernie Sanders according to a recent news article followed through on a “promise”. The article “Bernie Sanders keeps promise made in private to Sandra Bland’s mother” by “Michael Walsh Reporter October16, 2015″ (https://www.yahoo.com/politics/bernie-sanders-keeps-promise-made-in-private-to-145437157.html; obtained on 10-16-2015) is excerpted below:
“The Democratic presidential candidate told Reed-Veal that the death of her daughter was inexcusable and promised he would continue to ‘say her name.’ At the debate on Oct. 13 in Las Vegas, Sanders stayed true to his word when answering a question submitted by a law student through Facebook: ‘Do black lives matter, or do all lives matter?’
‘Black lives matter,’ Sanders said. ‘The reason those words matter is the African-American community knows that on any given day, some innocent person like Sandra Bland can get into a car and then three days later she’s going to end up dead in jail.’ “
The author if asked the question would have answered that both matter and explained. But Bernie Sanders seems to make the same point generally in the policies he promotes. And, apparently, by the “promises” he keeps.
