MSNBC Panelist: 'Foundation of This Country Is Racism' (NewsBusters)

According to MSNBC panelist Mychal Denzel Smith, the problem with the Ferguson decision is that people are not dealing with the inherent "racism" and "white supremacy" of America. The Nation magazine blogger appeared on The Reid Report to praise the protests as a way to make "the people in these privileged and powerful positions uncomfortable with all of the death that we are facing, the terrorization that we are facing as a community." 

Using the Michael Brown case as a way to condemn all of America, he excoriated, "What we refuse to deal with it is the idea -- the fact -- that our, the foundation of this country is racism and white supremacy and all of our institutions uphold that."
