PREACH: MSNBC Journalist Tears Down The Selfishness Of The 1%

Kaye Toal Curator:
When Melissa Harris-Perry put together a roundtable to discuss poverty in America, the conversation quickly turned to racism — at which point she delivers the most eloquent, impassioned summary of the selfishness of protecting the rich over the poor I've ever heard. The conversation is 10 minutes long and fascinating the whole way through, but if you only have a couple of minutes, fast forward to 8:19 for the ultimate in cathartic badassery. Just try not to cheer too loudly if you're in public.
