MSNBC’s Mitchell: ‘Are White People Grieving — Are They Capable in Large Numbers of Grieving for the Loss of a Black Child?”
MITCHELL: “Joining me now is Connie Schultz, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and a professional in residence in the journalism school — professor in residence, I should say, at the Kent State — Kent State University. Connie, it's great to see you. And her new novel is The Daughters of Erietown. Connie, I had a question when I read that. Are white people grieving? Are they capable in large numbers of grieving for the loss of a black child, or a black woman in her bed in Louisville, or is there something different this time because they witnessed eight minutes and 46 seconds of a murder?"
