Melissa Harris-Perry, one of the more celebrated MSNBC hosts, says that those who want to deport immigrants in America illegally are just as bad as the racists in the 1960s who tried to keep their schools segregated from black children. Now there are all sorts of problems with this analogy, but at the very least, even an MSNBC host who goes on air with tampons as earrings should know the difference between an illegal immigrant and a legal citizen. Those who discriminated purely on the basis of race can’t be compared to many of us who object to our country becoming the dumping grounds for the consequences of bad governance in other nations.
