On Monday, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders claimed that white people have no idea what poverty feels like, a statement so asinine that even the mostly liberal Politifact ranked his statement false on the truth-o-meter

During the Michigan debate with Hillary, Sanders said,

When you’re white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto. You don’t know what it’s like to be poor. You don’t know what it’s like to be hassled when you walk down the street or you get dragged out of a car.

“Sanders was certainly wrong to suggest that whites haven’t experienced poverty,” Politfact said. “In 2014, there were actually more white Americans in poverty — 19.7 million— than members of any other group.”

“Part of the reason, of course, is that there are more white Americans than there are members of minority groups overall (whites account for 62 percent of the population),” the site continued. “Still, even though whites have a lower poverty rate than other groups — roughly 10 percent —even that percentage is hardly trivial.”

Bernie’s statement comes as not only false, but also horribly and offensively racist. By Sanders’ own words, the color of one’s skin somehow equals a type of behavior or social status, which is the central crux of racism.
