Melissa Harris-Perry Needed Workers Comp After Watching “The Help”February 27th, 2012
MSNBC talk show host Melissa Harris-Perry, viewed the movie “The Help” and guess what — After viewing the film, professor Perry said she needed worker’s compensation. Don’t believe me.. Ask Lawrence O’Donnell.
Here’s what Professor Melissa Harris-Perry had to say:
“This is not a movie about the lives of black women. The movie is a stereotypical, white-washed depiction of the Old South’s Jim Crow era. It’s deeply troubling… it was rape, it was lynching, it was the burning of communities.
It is the same notion that the fidelity of black women domestics is more important than the realities of the lives, the pain, the anguish, the rape that they experienced.”
Did Octavia Spencer win an Oscar for playing the role of a perfect house Negro? Of course she did. Don’t believe me.. Ask Dr. Cornel West.
