You probably know Symone Sanders as a regular political commentator on CNN, who offers groundbreaking insights into social justice issues involving race, such as diversity, police brutality, Black Lives Matter and white privilege. Her aggressive style of talking over her opponents in a loud, entitled and ignorant manner has earned her much respect and admiration from progressives and black activists across the country, and has earned her a regular spot on CNN.
In addition to being a political commentator, Symone Sanders was also the national press secretary for Bernie Sanders at the age of 25, making her the youngest press secretary ever for a presidential campaign.
Aside from her eloquent and effective style of communication, Symone is known for her outspoken views on white privilege and racial injustice in America. In a recent CNN take on a fight between a group of progressive protesters and a Trump supporter, Symone laughed off the idea that one could ever sympathize with white people for getting beaten up by protesters, since whites are privileged and guilty by definition.
Symone also offered her take on the recent altercation between a group of black teens and a disabled Trump supporter, stating that she doesn’t think this constitutes a hate crime, given the racial makeup of the perpetrators and the victim.
In line with many of her colleagues in the Democratic party, Symone also believes that the party needs people of color leading it, and that the world has had enough of white people messing things up.
Symone embodies all the qualities of a well-rounded, measured and intelligent political commentator. Her insights are original and courageous, and she is not afraid to stand up for social justice even when it goes against the grain of popular thought. People like Symone are the reason why the Democratic party is soaring in popularity and is sure to win by a landslide in 2020. Some even think that Symone might be positioning herself as a candidate for president in 2020. With a leader like this, America is guaranteed to dominate international trade and be a shining beacon of hope, freedom and prosperity for the rest of the world.
