Harris-Perry and her panel believe that the Muslim faith of the Tsarnaev brothers should have no bearing in the investigation into the Boston Marathon massacre. To do so is merely demonizing the "other", since "there is no evidence suggesting the suspected attackers may have embraced a radicalized version of Islam." No? I guess she hasn't been keeping abreast of all the information that has been pouring in from the FBI, some family members and others.
Panel member Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson said
“[Americans] fill in the blanks with the stereotypes… we fill in the blanks with what makes us feel most comfortable that this was an exceptional, extraordinary case that happened because they are this.”
Indeed. Imagine had they been conservative, white men who were responsible. Melissa Harris-Perry would most definitely be singing a different tune.
