    Did anybody see Chris Hayes and Joy Reid town hall?

    Really good. They could make this a weekly series, and have plenty to talk about.

    The guy that got to me was talking about how he has to modulate his voice, not make eye contact, keep his hands in clear view - all in the hopes that he won't be perceived as a threat. At the end he just looked so defeated.

    Nobody should have to live like that.
    Thanks from HayJenn

    How can you possibly say it was a "dud" when you didn't even watch it?


    I thought is very informative. Obviously we have a long way to go to achieve true racial equality in this country. So sad to see stories of white people calling cops, simply because they encounter a black person

    Like this:

    A white person voices suspicions about an innocuous person of color. Police are summoned. And the encounter is posted on social media, sparking outrage about racial profiling.

    In what is becoming an all-too familiar episode, a black Yale University graduate student was interrogated by campus police officers early Tuesday after a white student found her sleeping in a common room of their dorm and called police. The black student, Lolade Siyonbola, posted two videos of the encounter to Facebook, where they have been widely viewed and drawn thousands of comments

    The incident is one of several in recent weeks in which police have been called on people of color for seemingly harmless acts. In one of the most recent, two black women and a black man were detained while leaving their California Airbnb after a neighbor called police, thinking they were burglars. Last month two black men were arrested at a Starbucks in Philadelphia after a manager called 911 on them because they didn't order anything.

    WTF is wrong with these people who call police simply because people are black?

    The word for this time in history will be "emboldened."

    Saw a reference to it was Tim Wise on it? He is a notorious race hustler. A white lib . He makes Sharpton look like a wimp. Another Michael Eric Dyson.

    I'm trying to find it and I want to watch it. Joy was on it, so my expectations are low.

    Yeah, I saw it. There were some good points but it was mostly just identity politics rhetoric and propaganda.

    Wow - clearly someone does not know what the definition of a race hustler is.
