Last weekend on her eponymous show, Melissa Harris-Perry responded to a letter sent to her from a young woman who attends Spelman College about the ongoing investigation of a rape that took place at Morehouse. Here's an excerpt:

“My fellow Spelman sisters are so concerned about Morehouse’s reputation being tainted, they’re not focused on the true issues here involving humanity, the sacredness of a woman’s body, and the fact that we are our sisters’ keeper.”
