Bernie Sanders' Sexual Harassment Reaction? We Were "Too White"

Article:

Stories have been popping up recently about the culture of sexual harassment inside the Bernie Sanders 2016 campaign, and the Vermont senator's aides are trying desperately to get out in front of it as they chart a course for 2020. In an interview with The New York Times, Sanders' former campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, acknowledged that they had made mistakes in their initial run for the Democratic nomination. Chief among them? They had violated the sacred identity politics creed: Thou shalt not fill your campaign with white men!

Weaver, said the Times, "expressed regret for some of the operation's shortcomings."

"Was it too male? Yes. Was it too white? Yes," said Weaver.

Of course, this excuse would have made a lot more sense if the perpetrators of sexual harassment on the campaign trail…had actually been white. But most of the complaints were lobbed against Arturo Carmona, the head of the Sanders campaign's Latino Outreach. And even in the incident described by The New York Times, the problematic man in the spotlight is Latino Outreach manager Bill Velazquez who, upon listening to a staffer's complaint about sexual harassment on the team, answered with: "I bet you would have liked it if he were younger."

So what does any of that have to do with white males?

So only white men are responsible for sexual assault? That certainly would be a shock to any woman assaulted by a hispanic male.
