MSNBC’s Harris-Perry: Almost Normal for Us to Expect Black Kids to Die, Moms to Grieve

‘Rather than expecting it to be normal for black children and mothers to grow up to live long lives together’

HARRIS-PERRY: "And with his sister, right? They go out to the playground. This ought to be the most basic thing you can have your kids do. Stay with us. Don’t leave. When we come back, I want to talk about exactly the human aspect. The idea it’s almost become as though it is mormal for us to expect black children to die and for black mothers to grieve, rather than expecting it to be normal for black children and mothers to grow up to live long lives together. Thank you for joining us. When we come back, David Jordan son’s mother will join the table."
