The constitution is not a infallible, it has mistakes and oversights. Why would you need a process to amend it, if it were perfect. Why do we have amendments?

She does have a point that slavery considerations were woven into the constitution. Slaves were initially considered as counting to the general population, then by amendment 3/5 and then by amendment allowed a full vote. Remember, all this happened under the watch of people who had sworn an oath to uphold the constitution, these people went and changed it!

Just because you disagree with aspects of the constitution, does not mean that you will not abide by the constitution. By this I mean working within the constitutional guidelines to correct what you believe is wrong. Inciting a riot to change the constitution by undemocratic means would be wrong.
