Melissa Harris-Perry has been fired from MSNBC. She anchored her own show and featured people who are often on the margins. She gave a voice to the voiceless and often discussed in depth issues that affected minority communities. MSNBC is revamping its image and it is starting to look like brown and black are out as they go toward a monotone look. Jose Diaz-Balart has become another victim of the whitewash he is almost invisible on the network. Rev. Al Sharpton who hosted a daily show has been reduced to Sunday only. The network gladly welcomed Brian Williams to the desk as they revamped afternoon shows to accommodate the disgraced anchor. They have even given Mark Halperin a show a man who once called President Obama a “dick”. So why the massive makeover? President Obama is lame duck and the conversation and the need for voices of color has and will diminish. MSNBC sees the handwriting on the white walls and the message is clear. No room at the anchor desks for minority voices because MSNBC is giving more time to shows like Morning Joe which feature guest who promise to Make America Great again.
