Decidedly not pretty fly for white guys

I’m really not informed enough to comment on any racism or sexism that did or did not lead to this decision.

But the racism and sexism I saw while reading about it online were goddamn vile and disgusting. 

Via CNN: Melissa Harris-Perry ‘highly unlikely’ to return to MSNBC 

I didn’t always agree with her, but I liked that show because it was a different perspective from all the white dudes they’re focusing on. Plus, having seen the rest of their programming, there’s really quite enough “breaking election news” without ditching your weekend morning hosts to make it a complete, 24-hour circle jerk. What, you need to pre-empt your Sunday shows to report that Donald Trump pooped and what that might mean for his Super Tuesday numbers?

One thought on “Decidedly not pretty fly for white guys

  1. This. So much.

    I *liked* hearing someone talk about something besides the endless horse race and go in depth on actual issues. I like MHP. I like her smarts, I like her perspective, and the guests she brought in – also something other than the usual old white guys. I hope she finds a venue other than MSNBC for her show, because I’d be very sorry to see the show go the way of the dodo.
