She finishes up the piece by repeatedly quoting the infamous words of a bigoted Chief Justice, Roger Taney, who has been dead for 150 years. In writing the majority decision for the Dred Scott Case, he said that black people didn’t qualify as Americans (people) and therefore could not sue Americans (people) in court. Taney was a big fan of slavery and a numbskull. It was the outrage generated from that decision that helped elect the Republican who went on to free the slaves. Those damned Republicans, though – eh, Melissa?!
She leaves this video with Taney’s stupid, inflammatory words droning over and over – as though those words have ANYTHING to do with sustaining the SIN of racial hatred which has divided ALL colors since the beginning of this fallen world.

There is a bunch more that could and should be said in exposing the cheap tricks of what appears to be a troublemaker posing as a ‘journalist.’ Anyone who would use such an artfully arranged presentation of drama and non-sequiturs to incite a mob to riot is every bit the coward of any of those rioters (who can only find their ‘bravery’ in the anonymity of a crowd). But, I mean, she’s in good company: Our president and his fellows have been faithfully playing the race card ever since he began ruining the history-yet-to-be-written regarding the performance of this country’s first black leader. SO MUCH GOOD COULD HAVE BEEN ACCOMPLISHED toward the interracial PEACE in this nation, by a black president and a powerful press COMMITTED to effecting that – but neither are present.
Ms. Perry, should a SINGLE injury or death result from the mangled ‘logic’ you have pawned off in commentaries such as these, I pray that the Lord who judges all of us will forever remind you of your deliberately catalytic role in bringing that about.
*The ‘400 police-committed killings per year’ is an unreliable figure based upon a voluntary reporting system with the FBI. She does not mention that these were documented justifiable homicides. Ms. Perry further neglected to mention the nearly 100 police who were killed during the last completed annual reporting period, as well as the 52,901 line-of-duty assaults upon police during that same period. I suppose Ms. Perry doesn’t wish to confuse her audience with bothersome facts.
