BENJAMIN DIXON: We've seen a marked turn from what happened in 2016. Bernie Sanders' team has put a lot into South Carolina. But now it's time to push back against this false narrative that minorities, that African-Americans in particular, are not supporting Bernie Sanders, when in fact, Millennials by a large margin, African-American Millennials, we are supporting Bernie Sanders. There is a large coalition of people who believe in what he's trying to do for the working class. Because, quite frankly, there's a lot of Black people who are working class and not just misfits according to Dr. Jason Johnson of your network. 

ARI MELBER (HOST): Shots fired, as they say. I'll try to get you and Jason on a segment together so you guys can have that conversation.
