Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders held a triumphant campaign event in Portland, Ore., Sunday when he delivered his socialist platform (uninterrupted) to an audience of up to 28,000 people, consisting of a packed 19,000 capacity basketball arena and an overflow crowd of thousands more.

That appearance, of course, followed a disaster of a rally in progressive Seattle, when #BlackLivesMatter protesters again took possession of the microphone and the rally, accusing the crowd of “white supremacist liberalism” and issuing a press release declaring, “White progressive Seattle and Bernie Sanders cannot call themselves liberals while they participate in the racist system that claims Black lives.”

Cannot call themselves liberals? Ouch! How’s a progressive white ally of the #BlackLivesMatter movement to help minorities #FeelTheBern?

Could that be the answer? Stop the whitesplaining and just shut up?

So how exactly can a Good White Person™ make the move from white supremacist liberalism to true ally status? Here’s a don’t list to follow. Are you paying attention, Bernie?
