What passes for "thought" at MSNBC

Melissa Harris-Perry, who unbelievably has a PhD, recently uttered this complete head-scratcher:

You canít really talk about (slavery) reparations and ignore the modern day wealthy Americans who own teams made up predominantly of black men and profit from their bodies and labor.

Hmm, "according to Forbes, the average salary in the NBA in 2012 was $5.15 million a year. With the average career lasting 4.8 years, that equates to $24.7 million in total compensation" Keep in mind, this is the average.

Soooo, "you can't really talk about (slavery) reparations" without mentioning ... multi-millionaire [black] basketball players, huh?
