MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry recently lectured for three hours at the University of Michigan to cheers and applause. Her talk covered the history of civil rights and the problems facing black people today. She told the audience that white people won't ever understand racism.
“They lack an innate “racial trigger,” that instantly tells them when to be outraged.
Harris-Perry, on the other hand, has a very finely-tuned racial trigger.
“I know that this moment is racist because it trips my racial trigger, because it makes me feel nauseous,” she said, according to The Michigan Daily. “I’m not generally angry, but you just made me mad.”
While lamenting that her ‘white allies’ would never be fully able to understand the way black people feel, she nevertheless maintained that a faculty more committed to discussing racial issues would help improve white people’s understanding of racism.

I know about it – black people don’t know the meaning of working to pay for other people to get handouts for free while white people are paying for their lazy asses
That’s because we are not racist, you black people are the ones that are racist.
Racism is the competition between all races.. Not a hate between all races. Some race of people are winning the game of life, and some are not. The ones who are winning get called racist.
I never knew what racism was until I became a waiter.
Racist is a tired card that people play when they don’t like what you are saying. Let that old chestnut expire.
Black’s like Obama, Sharpton, Jackson knows what racism is, because they use it all the time. The democrats are the biggest racist there are. Can you say KKK, segregation of schools in southern states, and ETC;
Melissa’s mom is white. Is her mom lacking that racial trigger as well? Why is she so full of hate against whites?
if melissa harris wants to see a racist she should look in the mirror. she has had an easy life yet still complains. Wish i could make a million dollars complaining about racist everyone is.
