Bernie Sanders has been busy trying to court the black Democratic vote to win the Democratic nomination for president. Rapper, Killer Mike has been very vocal about his endorsement of Bernie Sanders and with the New York primaries coming up on April 19, Spike Lee is lending Bernie a hand by producing an Ad for his campaign.
Spike Lee has been very vocal about his support for Sanders ever since a radio spot aired in South Carolina with Spike Lee urging voters to vote for Bernie Sanders.“Wake up, South Carolina. This is your dude, Spike Lee. And I know that you know the system is rigged,” he says in the ad. “For too long we’ve given our votes to corporate puppets. Sold the okie-doke. Ninety-nine percent of Americans were hurt by the Great Recession of 2008, and many are still recovering.”
Taking it a step further Spike produced an Ad for Sanders that features Harry Belafonte, Shaun King, and Erica Gardner (daughter of Eric Gardner) urging people of color in particular to vote for Sanders.
We’ll see if this helps Bernie win the primaries in New York April 19.
