Noam Chomsky on Black Lives Matter: Why Won't U.S. Own Up to History of Slavery & Racism? Add Video

{{correction to a quote in this video slavery was a 147 years ago and we can argue greatly it's never ended with the whole bias corrupt criminal justice system who warehouses it's African population and disenfranchises them and design and implemented their perpetual condition}}...Published on Mar 3, 2015 http://www.democracynow.org - Noam Chomsky weighs in on the Black Lives Matter movement across the United States, calling it a response to the unresolved consequences of slavery and racism dating back hundreds of years. "[Slavery] is a large part of the basis for our wealth and privilege," Chomsky says. "Is there a slave museum in the United States? The first one is just being established now with a private donor. This is the core of our history along with the extermination and expulsion of the native population. But it's not part of our consciousness."
