It’s a pretty good ad.

If Bernie Sanders didn’t exist, he’d be the politician Chris Pine works for in a made-up Cameron Crowe movie about idealism and soundtracked by Boomer rock
That movie, if it existed, would get denounced by lefty internet for being too white.
From the New York Times:
The race between Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Hillary Clinton ramped up Thursday with a top Clinton ally criticizing a new Sanders ad as focused too much on white Americans.
Mr. Sanders released a 60-second commercial in Iowa on Thursday that features the Simon and Garfunkel song “America” and that seeks to remind his supporters how far he has come since declaring his candidacy. …
David Brock, a longtime Clinton supporter who founded the “super PAC” backing her, told The Associated Press on Thursday that the advertising presented a “bizarre” image of America focused on white voters. Mr. Brock also said the ad was a “significant slight to the Democratic base,” according to the news agency.
“From this ad it seems black lives don’t matter much to Bernie Sanders,” Mr. Brock told The Associated Press.
Mrs. Clinton has historically had close ties with black voters, and several polls show her with significant leads on Mr. Sanders among the black electorate.
