Melissa Harris-Perry is the cable TV pioneer who broke the tastelessness barrier for feminists by wearing tampons as earrings on air in 2013. This week, she made ignominious history again — as the race-baiting fool in an ivory tower bubble who believes the words “hard worker” are a slur against black slaves and moms who don\’t have health care.
Caution: You may need a double dose of Excedrin to protect yourself from her brain-splitting nonsense.
Earlier this week, Harris-Perry chastised a Latino Republican guest on her show to be “super careful” when using the phrase “hard worker” to describe white Republican Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., the newly elected House GOP Speaker. Why? “Because I actually keep an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall,” she bragged, “because it is a reminder about what hard work looks like.”
