MSNBC host boycotts network: ‘I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head’


... “I will not be used as a tool for [management’s] purposes,” Harris-Perry wrote in the memo. “I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head. I am not owned by [NBC News Chairman Andy] Lack, [MSNBC President Phil] Griffin, or MSNBC. I love our show. I want it back. I have wept more tears than I can count, and I find this deeply painful, but I don’t want to be back on air at any cost” ...

MSNBC will cut ties with Melissa Harris-Perry. Whatever happened here, it’s too bad


... This much is clear: A program that has broken the staid mold for weekend political shows is not on the air with its intended host and architect. That the status of a show on which guests and content have provided context and rare insight into a changing nation passes strange. Finally, that the show has been relegated to the realm of the non-essential during a presidential election in which who and what matters in the United States seem to be central questions, well, that just seems fundamentally unwise ...

The show, "Melissa Harris-Perry," is regularly scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon EST on Saturdays and Sundays. It did not air in February ...

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
