Symone Sanders to CNN: 'We Don't Need White People Leading the Democratic Party'

The former spokeswoman for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is calling for diversity at the top of the Democratic National Committee – declaring "we don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now."

Current CNN contributor Symone Sanders criticized Howard Dean's attributes for the party executive spot – calling out his "maligning" the senator from Vermont and some of the supporters of his presidential bid.

"Howard Dean is also on record maligning young people and millennials — telling those Bernie folks they just need to get in line — and maligning Bernie Sanders. And that is not what we need," she said.

A video of the exchange was posted by Mediaite.

"In my opinion, we don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now," she added. "The Democratic party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in our leadership and throughout the staff, at the highest levels."

Mediaite noted in a separate interview, the former Sanders spokeswoman also spoke dismissively of a confrontation in Chicago, where one attacker said to a beating victim: "It's one of them white-boy Trump guys."

"What do you say to the people who dragged a poor white guy out of a car and beat him?" CNN panelist Carl Higbie asked Symone Sanders last Monday.

She replied: "Oh my goodness, poor white people. Please."
