Elie Mystal bases his argument on The View on the specious premise that the Constitution deprives blacks and women of equality of rights. But despite his claims to be interested in justice, the document he would replace the Constitution with would without any doubt be authoritarian, depriving everyone of the freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, and more.

by Elizabeth Faddis, Washington Examiner, March 4, 2022:
The Constitution, which was written by “slavers and colonists,” is “kind of trash,” according to one reporter.
Elie Mystal, author and justice correspondent for the Nation, criticized the Constitution when asked whether the purpose of his new book, Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy’s Guide to the Constitution, was to trash the governing document.
“It’s certainly not sacred. Let’s start there,” Mystal told Ana Navarro during a segment on The View. “The Constitution is kind of trash.”…
Mystal went on to say that the document “was written without the consent of black and brown people in this country and without the consent of women in this country.”
“If that is the starting point, the very least we can do is ignore what those slavers and colonists and misogynists thought and interpret the Constitution in a way that makes sense for our modern world,” Mystal said….
The Constitution has come under scrutiny from many on the Left who question the legitimacy of a document authored by white men. One law professor called for a “redo” of the First Amendment in December 2021, and last September, the National Archives Records Administration placed a “harmful language alert” on the founding document.
