MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry nearly broke down in tears in the wee hours of Sunday morning while describing her reaction — and the reaction of her 11-year-old daughter — to the not guilty verdict of George Zimmerman.
After a fellow anchor referenced Harris-Perry’s initial comments that black parents will need to hold their children a little closer following the jury’s decision, she became emotional.
“I think part of the reason I was having that reaction was because my 11-year-old is apparently — she’s home with her father — and she was watching, and texted me that she felt like there was no justice in America. And my big sister told me that her 12-year-old son had gotten in bed with them tonight,” she said, her voice cracking and appearing to fight back tears.
If you didn't have the mental maturity of a 10 year old you wouldn't be talking shit around your 11 year old and she wouldn't send you ridiculous texts.
Your child is not your equal you are raising her, preparing her for her life ahead, quit behaving like a womb/friend and become a parent.
