MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry: I Hope Trayvon Martin ‘Whooped The Shit Out Of George Zimmerman’

Earlier this week MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry told a group of students at Cornell University’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture that she hoped Trayvon Martin had a chance to beat his killer George Zimmerman.

“I hope Trayvon Martin tried to stay alive. I hope he knew that he lived in a state with a ‘Stand Your Ground’ law,” Harris-Perry. “And I hope he whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman.”

Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman three years ago today on Feb. 26, 2012.

“And it’s not disreputable because he encountered a stranger who was prepared to kill him, and you know how I know? Because he killed him,” Harris-Perry added.

Her speech was titled “We Can’t Breathe: The Continuing Consequences of Inequality.” The video above was posted by the Cornell Review, who called Harris-Perry’s speech “an embarrassment for Cornell.”

Embarrassing sums up just about everything affiliated with MSNBC.
