Biden Senior Adviser in 2016: ‘We Don’t Need White People Leading the Democratic Party’

‘In my opinion, we don’t need white people leading the Democratic Party right now’

EXCERPT:

SANDERS: “In my opinion we don't need white people leading the Democratic Party right now. The Democratic Party is diverse and it should be reflected as so, and our leadership [indecipherable] out the staff at the highest levels, from the vice chairs to the secretaries all way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC. I think we need to have a robust discussion about this and I think we need to hear more from all of the candidates. Jaime Harrison of the South Carolina, he's great too. He has done real party building, but everybody doesn't necessarily know Jaime and they want to know what it is that he stands for. So, I want to hear more from everybody. I'm here for the Millennials and the brown folks."
