MSNBC’s Velshi on Family Separation: ‘We’re Actually Used to This, We Did It to Slaves’
‘We just decided that families were not important, it was a way to weaken people’
By Grabien Staff

EXCERPT:

VELSHI: “So we are actually used to this. And if we go back sociologically into our history, we have done this to the poor, we did it to slaves. Right? We just decided that families were not important. It was a way to weaken people. You could actually separate families. We have some deep-rooted cultural understanding of families that is not shared by the rest of the world.”
