[Image: A series of animated gifs of Melissa Harris-Perry arguing on TV, looking increasingly frustrated and angry until, in the last frame, she looks upset and exhausted. Her words read: “What is riskier than living poor, in America? Seriously! What in the world is risker than being a poor person, in America? I live in a neighbourhood where people are shot on my street corner. I live in a neighbourhood where people have to figure out how to get their kid into school, because maybe it’ll be a good school and maybe it won’t. I am sick of the idea that being wealthy is risky! No. There is a huge safety net that whenever you fail will catch you and catch you and catch you. Being poor is what is risky! We have to create a safety net for poor people. And when we won’t, because they happen to look different from us, it is the pervasive ugliness.]
