Wait, Indians had immigration laws?
SHARPTON: Give me your idea of the kinds of things people ought to deal with this Thursday when their families and friends get together.
HARRIS-PERRY: You know, it’s an interesting question. I’ve been thinking a lot about Thanksgiving and the moment that we’re in because, you know, our economic crisis right now is highly tied to the European economic crisis and so I was thinking about kind of what is that first Thanksgiving when these illegal immigrants from Europe come over and are fed by the people of the actual Americas, the Native and indigenous people, you know, here on this land, that they are trying to escape religious prosecution and persecution in Europe and then you have the Europeans basically calling them dirty, no good, worthless, basically 99 percenters, right? And all of that is now playing out in a different way as we see the 99 percent pushing back against this idea that the elites are the only one that deserve to have a Thanksgiving dinner. All of that.
