MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY: Just Said The Dumbest Thing About Blacks You Can Imagine

I guess being delusional is a requirement to have a show on MSNBC.

During Saturday’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” on MSNBC, host Melissa Harris-Perry and University of Connecticut professor Jelani Cobb discussed Hurricane Katrina and the perception of African-Americans in America.

Harris-Perry stated that she noticed people in New Orleans during Katrina wrapped themselves in American flags, and weren’t labeled as Americans, but rather refugees by the media.

“The media, from my perspective, was complicit in. I’ll never forget just how difficult those images were of New Orleanians literally wrapped in American flags or waving American flags and being labeled not as Americans needing rescued, but as refugees.”

“They’re literally showing, displaying their sacrifice as citizens and we still couldn’t see them as Americans,” she added.

Cobb explained that people in Katrina, as well as Walter Scott and other recent African-Americans shot by non-African-Americans, are not seen as citizens and have had to “deploy new forms of media to establish” their “humanity.”
