Some are saying yeah, it looks a lot like him, but let's not jump to conclusions.
Interestingly, the video surfaced shortly after civil rights icon John Lewis downplayed Sanders' involvement in the movement and endorsed Hillary Clinton instead. If the video truly is him, this conversation is bound to get interesting, especially since Sanders and Clinton are both trying to win over black voters.
If you want to reach #Blackvoters, don't come with old platitudes on how many marches you attended or what hymns you can sing. That's old.
