Delicious: Melissa Harris Perry Quits Her MSNBC Show & Accuses The Network of Racism

When a person with borderline average talent walks off her own show and cries racism as the reason she lost some control, does anyone care? No. Not only does no one care, but some people even ask “who is that?”  That is Melissa Harris-Perry, the same girl who wore tampons as earrings and she’s starving for more attention. Someone feed her hugs while she leaves the building of her TV career.

HARRIS-PERRY: “I want us to be super careful when we use the language ‘hard worker.’ Because I actually keep an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall, because it is a reminder about what hard work looks like. In the context of relative privilege, I just want to point out, that when you talk about work-life balance and being a hard worker, the moms who don’t have health care who are working, we don’t call them hard workers. We call them failures, people who are sucking off the system.”

I want her to be super careful on her way out the door, because when we slam it, it may hit her you know where.

Harris-Perry, who also accused MSNBC of taking away editorial control from her, suggested her race might have played a role in the network’s behavior toward her.

“The purpose of this decision seems to be to provide cover for MSNBC, not to provide voice for MHP Show. I will not be used as a tool for their purposes,” she wrote. “I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by Lack, Griffin, or MSNBC.”

Actually, if you work for MSNBC, then you are their tool. I suppose she’s a “tool” one way or the other, but certainly not the strongest hammer or most powerful drill bit of the bunch.
