Seems former CNN contributor Symone Sanders has changed her mind about old white dudes.
Former VP Joe Biden announced his run for President today and has hired Sanders to serve as a senior advisor on his campaign. Oddly enough, back in 2016, Sanders said that she was opposed to white men leading the Democrat party.
“We don’t need white people leading the Democratic Party right now,” she said. Then added, “The Democratic Party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in our leadership and throughout the staff at the highest levels from the vice chairs to the secretaries all the way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC.”
So what changed? There are a couple of African American candidates running – why not take a job with their campaigns instead or simply refuse the opportunity if it comes from a white man.
Sanders is notorious for her social justice stances on CNN, often saying white people have no right to comment on anything related to black issues.
She seems pretty excited to work for Biden, though, tweeting “.
@JoeBiden & @DrBiden are a class act. Over the course of this campaign, Vice President Biden is going to make his case to the American ppl. He won’t always be perfect, but I believe he will get it right.”
