Sanders promises to lead fight against Islamophobia
by Ben Kamisar
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday invoked his ancestors' deaths in Holocaust concentration camps as he embraced a Muslim student and promised to lead the fight against racism.
"Let me be very personal if I might. I'm Jewish, my father's family died in concentration camps," he said to the student at a town hall speech in Virginia who asked how he would stand up to Islamophobia.
"I will do everything that I can to rid this country of the ugly stain of racism that has existed for far too many years."
