It has been a little over a year since #TheDress shattered long-held beliefs of an objective reality, and the aftershocks are still being felt. The Dress debate turned into a partisan issue, separating all Americans into allegiances to White and Gold or Blue and Black. That debate trickled into a real debate, when the ambiguous color of Bernie Sanders' suit became the trending topic of the latest Democratic Debate, despite the fact that he and Hillary were discussing actually important issues like immigration and climate change.
Brown vs. Blue is the New White & Gold vs. Blue & Black is the new civil discourse.
Many thought the Bern went Brown.
Others saw blue, as in Democrat.
Of course, Bernie's Suit soon got its own Twitter account:
Some people resisted getting wrapped up in the frenzy.
A representative from the Bernie campaign released the official ruling. After he himself misinterpreted, it was revealed that the suit was black.
So Team Black is the winner, and the loser is America, for being so easily distracted from the issues.
