Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, and the progressive community more broadly, voiced outrage and demanded an apology Friday after MSNBC contributor and Morgan State University journalism professor Dr. Jason Johnson referred to Sanders aides and defenders as \u0022people from the island of misfit black girls\u0022 during a radio appearance.\u0022The man cares nothing for intersectionality,\u0022 Johnson said of Sanders, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, on SiriusXM\u0026#039;s The Karen Hunter Show. \u0022And I don\u0026#039;t care how many people from the island of misfit black girls that you throw out there to defend you on a regular basis.\u0022\u0022That\u0026#039;s where you have crossed the line, sir,\u0022 replied host Karen Hunter.\u0022I don\u0026#039;t care,\u0022 said Johnson.“Racist, liberal whites seem to love them some Bernie Sanders.He cares nothing for intersectionality. I don’t care how many people from the island of misfit Black girls you throw out there to defend you.”@DrJasonJohnson on Bernie’s staff \u0026amp; supporters. MSNBC should sever ties. pic.twitter.com/abxZKsFhaA— Samuel D. Finkelstein II (@CANCEL_SAM) February 21, 2020Listen to the full segment.The clip quickly went viral on social media and was immediately condemned by members of the Sanders campaign.\u0022I hope we can have political disputes without engaging in open racism and sexism,\u0022 Briahna Joy Gray, Sanders\u0026#039; national press secretary, tweeted late Friday. \u0022This misogynoir is disappointing, but not surprising from Dr. Jason Johnson. I hope we can all encourage each other to be better.\u0022Phillip Agnew, a Sanders surrogate, called Johnson\u0026#039;s comments \u0022deep disdain masquerading as journalism.\u0022\u0022This isn\u0026#039;t analysis. This isn\u0026#039;t insight,\u0022 Agnew tweeted. \u0022Hate to see it.\u0022Sanders campaign national co-chair Nina Turner addressed Johnson\u0026#039;s comments during the Vermont senator\u0026#039;s rally in Las Vegas on the eve of Saturday\u0026#039;s Nevada Democratic caucus:.@NinaTurner: \u0022You know somebody said that those Black women who support @BernieSanders particularly myself and our press sec Brie Joy are on the Island of Misfit Black women. I was thinking the same thing, but Sister @briebriejoy said it ain\u0026#039;t island it\u0026#039;s a whole continent... pic.twitter.com/bREsHaF3f6— People for Bernie (@People4Bernie) February 22, 2020Progressives outside of the Sanders campaign joined the chorus condemning Johnson\u0026#039;s remarks.\u0022No matter which candidate you support or oppose, there is no place for this type of belittling, dismissive attack on their staff,\u0022 tweeted the Working Families Party, which endorsed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for president. \u0022We hope there will be an apology to Briahna Joy Gray and Nina Turner.\u0022\u0022This is completely uncalled for,\u0022 added Women\u0026#039;s March.
