    Congrats to sister Harris-Perry! I’ve been a fan of hers since her first appearance on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show while she was at Princeton! I am an MSNBC News junkie!
    I must say this is possibly all due to the fact that we have a president of color. When many of us complain that there are no jobs available as a result of his policies, we must flip the script and look at what we cannot see. Just saying’!

    Congrats again, my sister!!
