Obama Adviser Speaks On Roseanne Tweet

Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett recently appeared on MSNBC to talk about Roseanne Barr’s derogatory tweet and said that it should be a “teaching moment.”

Jarrett stated, “I’m fine. I’m worried about all the people out there who don’t have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense, the person who is walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse or want to cross the street. Or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, the talk as we call it.”

“As you say, those ordinary examples of racism that happen every single day. I think that’s why I’m so glad to be here this evening talking with all of you.”
