Meacham: The Test Ahead Of Us Now Is When Real Legislative Reform Happens | Morning Joe | MSNBC


  1. step two Let’s stop being racist and try to be more humane and when someone can do that the heart actually feel love Rather than hate

  2. Thank you for acknowledging John Lewis becuz I believe he would’ve been proud. He said Alway fight the good fight.

  3. Mr. John Lewis
    Mr. George Floyd

    SIR’s we ask that you RIP Mr. Floyd you have changed the WORLD … we got you! We’ve only just begun.

    1. Maria poulos : the world do not behave like Americans . The American way of life is sickening with the racist of anyone in colour is sickening. Suppression of anyone’s liberty is sickening. That is how America is and not how the rest of the world is!!!!

  4. “You can always count on Americans will always do the right thing after we have exhausted every other possibility.” Love it.

  5. Jon Meacham’s commentary is always welcome and well-informed. This is def a moment for him to speak to history. Thank you for having him on today!

  6. I have such an admiration for historian Jon Meacham. He resembles the type of person I would want to be. Just someone who knows history overall

  7. Once in a generation shift? I DON’T THINK SO! This is a multi-generational and international watershed, folks. There is a Creator, and the time is now. Team Dark is done! Watch in wonder.

  8. John Lewis would be thinking, “It’s about f***ing time. It’s coming slowly Martin, but it is coming! We’re still, fighting the good fight”!

    1. Allan Pattison… I hear your message, but John Lewis would not have spoken like that to describe the goodness that happened. He certainly would not have used that particular word. Don’t put your words in his mouth. It’s disrespectful.

  9. It all boils down to exactly “What and Who” is the “Perceived” enemy. The color of your skin should not be considered your savior or your sin. Unfortunately, mainstream media doesn’t have time for that type of detailed dialogue.

  10. If we’re lucky, there may be a shift in level of awareness. A shift in the need to move toward a better way will only come with attitude and concomitant hard work. The move forward to find solutions and implement them depends on a willingness to lay down fears and accept others in God’s complex world. Love is all you need.

  11. Kudos Jon . I love your commentary. There is nothing like hearing a well spoken adult who knows what they are talking about . Thank you!
