In an absolutely unwarranted display of racial hysteria, MSNBC contributor Michelle Bernard warned that America is such a racist country, that we are on the verge of a “genocide” of “black boys” and African-American men.
Her statement came during a Hardball segment in which the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson and criticism of Obama was being debated.
To nobody’s surprise, host Chris Matthews did nothing to call out Bernard for the hyperbolic rhetoric.
On Hardball Monday, MSNBC contributor Michelle Bernard said the U.S. is on the verge of experiencing a “genocide” of young black men. …
“I don’t have an answer that is palatable to be able to look my children in the face and say there are people in this country who– not only do not like African-Americans, but they despise black men,” Bernard said. “There is a war on black boys in this country. In my opinion, there is a war on African-American men.” […]
“I hope so,” Bernard said, “because this is, it’s going to turn into a genocide if it doesn’t stop.”

Why does Bernard think America is so focused on a hatred of African-American men? Let’s take a look at her own words…
Quite frankly, the election of Barack Obama I think was one of the greatest political events I will ever see in my lifetime, but the country has become more race conscious in terms of color and in terms of ethnicity since he was elected.
Racial tension has grown worse under President Obama? Oops.
