Melissa Harris-Perry has joined Elle.com, where she will serve as editor-at-large. Elle.com editorial director Leah Chernikoff says Harris-Perry will focus on the intersection of race, gender, politics, and yes, even fashion, telling the often-overlooked stories of women and girls of color.
Harris-Perry left MSNBC after an internal memo became public in February. In the memo, Harris-Perry accused NBC News chairman Andy Lack and MSNBC president Phil Griffin of taking away her weekend morning discussion program. I will not be used as a tool for their purposes, she wrote. I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head.
Joining Elle.com is an opportunity to combine my expertise as a scholar, my commitments as a public intellectual, and my interests as a woman, Harris-Perry said in a statement. Politics, economics, and inequality will be important to the stories we tell, but so too will culture, community, family, and even fashion. I am thrilled to tell my loyal television audience where they can find me and to introduce myself to brand new audiences, all while telling the stories of extraordinary women and girls.
Harris-Perrys first column, about HBOs new film about Anita Hill, was published Monday.
Not at all surprising that her first subject of focus was/is race.
Does anyone even read Elle any more?
Called in a chit I guess. Sounds suspiciously like ‘freelancer’ to me. Piece work. One step above unemployment and near losing your last shred of dignity.
I hope she saved most of her probably overpaid salary from MSNBC because she’s on the wrong side of fringe.
Can anyone who buys Elle to look at the pictures even know how to read?
What are you then, a dancing tampon?
“I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head.
That’s exactly what she is.
It’s ranked about 1300 on Alexa.
FR by comparison is about 2700.
I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head
She doesn’t even look black, are we sure she isn’t another Rachel Dolezal?
Identifying as something you are not is cool these days....
Isn’t that raaacisss?
Here's Mom and Dad
So she should really only be half as outraged as she is.....
or mad at her white side...
A “little brown bobble head” has a higher IQ compared to that twit MHP.
White tampons. Is it before Labor Day?
There goes the neighborhood.
The readers of Elle, unless I miss my guess, are not ready for a guilt-tripping whiner.
The readers of Elle pick it up to escape from the universe of nattering naboobs.
Expertise as a scholar? LOL
Ol tampon earring babe winds up at a chick glamour mag.
They are gonna have to do a lot of shellacking to cover up that amount of bitter.
