Rep. Gregory Meeks: Sanders Is the One Trying to Exploit Black People

‘What he’s trying to do is to exploit black people to say either you all did not know what you were doing 20 years ago’

MEEKS: "People need to look at what was taking place in the 90s. In fact, when I listen to what was just said, some of what I think is insulting to African Americans, you’re saying that African Americans don’t know who or why they vote for individuals. You go back to 1994 and 1996, African Americans voted for Bill Clinton 88% of us. Are you saying that black people don’t know who talk and move in their best interest? It’s almost insulting. And so to come some 20 years, almost to years later, I think what they are doing and what he’s trying to do is to exploit black people to say either you all did not know what you were doing 20 years ago in the 90s."
