(VIDEO) Michael Eric Dyson: "This President Runs from Race Like a Black Man Runs from a Cop"

When MSNBC host Tamron Hall gave him a chance to retract his comments, Dyson stood by them.

Via Talking Points Memo:

Georgetown Professor Michael Eric Dyson said today that he thinks that "this president runs from race like a black man runs from a cop," and that "we should push the president" about race.
On MSNBC, Dyson was discussing the controversy over Harry Reid's recent apology for his remark during the 2008 campaign that Barack Obama has "no Negro dialect."
