That really ought to promote a constructive dialogue . . . Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement, has announced that "any opportunity we have to shut down a Republican convention, we will."
Appearing on today's Melissa Harris-Perry, Cullors also blithely spoke of "the murder of Mike Brown" in Ferguson, MO. Neither of the co-guest hosts sitting in for Harris-Perry, Richard Liu and Janet Mock, challenged Cullors' characterization. This despite the fact that even Eric Holder's Justice Department found no wrongdoing on the part of the police officer who shot Brown.
