    Please Tell Me You See the Hypocrisy in This!

     
    "MSNBC host and commentator Melissa Harris Perry surprisingly defended the lack of diversity in President Obama's second term cabinet in an appearance on the network this morning. Harris Perry says just because someone is of one gender and not the other or has a certain skin color doesn't mean they are representative of that specific group. Harris Perry cites Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as an example, who she says doesn't represent "the vast majority" of African-Americans."

    Really? So if this were a conservative white male's cabinet she would not be complaining about the lack of diversity?

    The staff at MSNBC seems they don't even need to hide their bias anymore. Can anyone take her seriously?
