Melissa Harris Perry Says She Attended Rev. Wright’s Post 9/11 Sermon and He Was Right
â€œI was in Trinity United Church of Christ on the Sunday after September 11th,â€ said Harris-Perry. â€œI was at the time living in Chicago, I attended church the Sunday after September 11, 2001. And I will never forget that Rev. Wright, on that day, preached a sermon that was an anti-war sermon. Before anyone was even fully talking about war, Rev. Wright understood that what the American state normally does is to respond to this kind of attack with war and that that war was going to be against poor countries and countries with people of color and that it was probably going to be a war that did very little to keep us particularly safe relative to terrorism. And in all of those ways Rev. Wright was exactly right.â€
Melissa Harris-Perry and her guest brought up Rev. Wright to compare the way both he and the late Derrick Bell have been treated by the media.
