ONE OF THE BIGGEST criticisms Bernie Sanders has had to hear is that his message of income inequality doesn’t touch on the needs of communities of color as much as it should. This recent ad for his campaign titled “Tenemos Familias” does a damn good job of invalidating that argument.
The 5-minute video, which is almost more of a mini-documentary than ad, focuses on Udelia, a migrant worker who picks tomatoes in Immokalee, Florida. She talks about the abuse she has gone through to make pretty much slave wages because she has faith that her sacrifices will make the American Dream possible for her children. Try not to get choked up watching this.
