As a national co-chair for the Bernie Sanders’ campaign, former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner leans on her connection to God to infuse politics with spirituality.  Turner is “the voice” of Sanders’ 2020 presidential bid for the White House, and she supports Sanders’ ideas from a policy perspective while using her gifts as an orator to bring soul to the mission. The daughter of a preacher, Turner’s political speeches are always loaded with an otherworldly knowing.   “I was molded in the Black church. And that gave me the spirit, not only the spirit, but the compassion that I have for marginalized people,” Turner told TheGrio.

During his victory speech in South Carolina on Saturday, Joe Biden thanked Rep. Jim Clyburn for lifting “me and this campaign on his shoulders.” If he wins big today on Super Tuesday, Biden can most assuredly credit it to the power of the Black vote. The former vice president is expected to remain competitive with Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) because of Black voters who are giving him the chance to score delegates in majority Black districts according to Politico. The bonus is that Democrat rules give additional delegates to proven Democratic district strongholds and this includes the mostly Black districts where Biden is expected to perform well.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Joe Biden scored a thundering victory Saturday in South Carolina’s Democratic primary on the strength of African American support, a decisive win that could force moderate rivals out of the race and blunt the rise of progressive leader Bernie Sanders.

Dr. Jason Johnson has reportedly been benched from appearing on MSNBC after he made controversial comments about the Black women on the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. The Daily Beastreported Wednesday that Johnson, a frequent on-air contributor, would not be appearing on the airwaves anytime soon to give political commentary. The decision was in response to Johnson tearing into the Democratic socialist on an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Karen Hunter Show last week. “I do find it fascinating that racist liberal whites seem to love them some Bernie Sanders, consistently, and always have a problem with any person of color who doesn’t want to follow with the orthodoxy of their ‘lord and savior’ Bernie Sanders,” Johnson said.

The House bill, introduced by Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.), would add lynching to the United States Criminal Code and make it a hate crime.
