Don’t expose MNBC’s new fortune cookie, it will make her look bad:
Â In her television she has advocated that newsmedia should under-report attrocities committed by Blacks and other favored groups because it makes these groups look bad.
“I’ve never thought of myself as biracial,” Harris-Perry says. “I’m black.”
Nearly 11 years after 9/11 there are still poptards among us who wonder “why do they hate us?”
Melissa Harris Perry like Obama is the child of Â a black father and a white American woman, an affirmative action product, a creature who Â probably cost the U.S. taxpayer a million dollars in tuition fees. Like the Obummer himself, she carries a mental baggage that would break the back of the strongest Â mule.
Her black father, William M. Harris Sr., was dean of Afro-American affairs at theÂ University of Virginia, and her white mother, Diana Gray, taught at a community college and worked for nonprofits that helped poor communities.

In response, Eltahawy was right on point: “It’s not me that makes Muslims look bad. It’s those atrocities that make Muslims look bad.” I have made this point hundreds of times — but the Islamic supremacists’ “Islamophobia” fog machine is intent on obscuring it, with eager help from the Leftist mainstream media.
Just for “balance”, along comes the hideous Islam apologist Leila Ahmed to save the day.
“MSNBC: Don’t expose Muslim atrocities: Harvard professor doesn’t want ‘fuel’ against Islam revealed,” by Colin Flaherty forÂ WND, May 22:
MSNBC’s new golden girl was in a pickle:
If someone sees a black person committing rape or domestic violence, should he report it if it makes black people look bad?Or if Muslims see wife-beating, genital mutilation and childhood sexual abuse, should they just keep it to themselves, because saying something gives ammunition to the “Islamophobes”?
The questions appear to be simple. But they posed a challenge for the host of the new “Melissa Harris-Perry” show when guest Mona Eltahawy talked about herForeign Policy magazine cover story about abuse of women by men in the Muslim world.
Eltahawy speaks from experience:
She had her arms broken in a demonstration in Egypt and was tortured and raped in an Egyptian jail cell.
So she seemed surprised to find Harris-Perry questioning her right to draw attention to “traditions” such as involuntary female circumcision, wife-beating and childhood sexual abuse.
“I start with a little bit of trepidation in this conversation,” the host said, “in part because I know some of the critiques of this. The very idea that Western press, those that are not from these nations, who are not Muslim ourselves, who are not part of these traditions can look at your article and say ‘ahhh, look at how horrible those men, or those societies, or that religion is.’
“And that is part of the reason why, for example, we have an under-reporting of rape and domestic violence in African American communities,” Harris-Perry continued. “Because we know the violence enacted on black men by police, so we often don’t call. Right?”
Then the MSNBC host brought in Harvard professor Leila Ahmed, who questioned whether Eltahawy should have written the article at all. Not because it was false, but because it made Muslims look bad.
“You began, Melissa, by noting that some things in the African-American community are not publicized precisely because of the racism,” said Ahmed as Harris-Perry nodded in agreement on a split screen.
“Mona, I appreciate what you do,” continued Ahmed. “I would love it if â€“ I understand if you want to get your message across. It’s an important message. But if possible [you should not] give fuel, fodder to people who simply hate Arabs and Muslims in this climate of our day.”
Eltahawy seemed taken aback.
“That’s the whole point,” she said. “It’s not me that makes Muslims look bad. It’s those atrocities that make Muslims look bad. And as a writer, it’s my job to poke the painful places.”
Harris-Perry declined to respond to a subsequent email asking if she ever refused to report a violent crime because it would make someone look bad…
