"Black folks are the most left-leaning constituency in the United States, that's been shown generation after generation.....But we don't behave that way in national elections. And this year, much as in previous years, what we're seeing is that the black vote acts as the bulwark of the most reactionary wing of the Democratic party, the right wing of the Democratic party, and its standard-bearer this time around, Hillary Clinton."
--Glen Ford, Black Agenda Report
According to Ford, if Sanders cannot break through the "brick wall" of
black voters who have so far not come to him in sufficient numbers, his
presidential campaign is "doomed."
