Michael Eric Dyson: Northam sampling Shaggy, 'It wasn’t me'


Virginia’s embattled Governor, Ralph Northam, is resisting calls to resign, after a racist photo from his 1984 medical school yearbook page surfaced. Professor Michael Eric Dyson tells Ari Melber if Northam “can’t acknowledge it” and “can’t say this was wrong” then “we can’t have any progress”. Dyson also weighs on controversy surrounding the Super Bowl and artists who chose to boycott the event in support of Colin Kaepernick, telling Melber that “cancel culture” itself “has to be cancelled” and that “we must get beyond” a “single stream of consciousness”.
