*Looking @ Joy Reid*
MSNBC makes its BLACK and other peoples of color LEADING SHOW HOST disappear like Casper, one-by-one, by one!
First Martin Bashir, Alex Wagner, Joy Reid, and Rev Al Sharpton-who was eventually relegated to Sunday morning during church hour, from a 5 evenings/week.
The Black President is leaving the White House next year. There’s a new election cycle this year, no need for all these negroes having their own shows anymore. NEXT!
We know that it’s all about the $$$$-PROFIT-ALSO, TOO!
Tamron Hall and Craig Melvin still have air time at MSNBC. But don’t wait for the hammer to come down on you, because it’s only a matter of time before you two are given your walking papers too.
Melissa Harris Perry’s weekend show got the axe last month.
Excerpt from article:
“MSNBC, which significantly trails Fox News and CNN in ratings, is in the midst of an overhaul, pivoting away from its left-leaning identity toward hard news in the daytime hours. Ms. Harris-Perry had been the host of her show, which focused on issues like racism and social justice, since 2012.
On Friday, she went public with an email that she sent earlier that week to staff members in which she complained that the NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, and Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, were letting her twist in the wind.
“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. I love our show. I want it back.”
Now we have Joy Reid making the rounds on the remaining MSNBC shows as the token smart Black political correspondent.
5:35 minute mark: It’s CRINGE-WORTHY, the condescension here. Yet Joy just laps it up. We all got to work for a living, but don’t think for one damn minute that MSNBC won’t let your black ass go, when you no longer serve their needs.
Rachel: “Joy Reid, thank yu so much. That was the actually the best interview segment I have had with anybody on this show in a very long time. You’re so SMART! (Pats Joy on head) My words here.
(Rachel, this sure makes a nice case for Joy getting her show back, now doesn’t it?)
Joy: “Thank you! Thank you!” (Grins)
Rachel: “Joy Reid, we’re very lucky to have her.”
Luck has nothing to do with it, Rachel. You’ve got a role to play, and that’s to make Joy, the negress feel special, feel wanted, needed…
I’ve got 6 decades of living under my belt. I’ve seen and experienced this kind of shit, and it’s not pretty. some white folks think their prime role in life is to validate my BLACKNESS, MY VERY BEING.
And yes, we know life isn’t free. You got to work for a living, but must you compromise your self-worth, by catering to these folks?
Now we all know that Joy Reid is smart. She’s likey smarter than the remaining MSNBC white show hosts, yet she has been assigned to make the rounds on these shows and speak to the racial issues that MSNBC decides they will cover when they feel like.
Joy, if you’re really smart, might I suggest you negotiate a deal with MSNBC for a show in the evening, right before TRMS. You can report on all the political issues of the day, just like Rachel.
Are we missing something? Would you rather sit around the table for these interviews playing the “LITTLE BROWN BOBBLEHEAD?” ……….
Or use that HARVARD degree and deliver news and political issues with some INTEGRITY somewhere else.
You can do better than this, Joy, so much better.
Question: Has Joy accepted the role of the “token, mammy, or little brown bobble head?
