    While discussing the efficacy of a hypothetical Speaker Paul Ryan, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry cautioned guest Alfonso Aguilar against using the phrase “hard worker,” implying that it is somehow offensive to African Americans.

    “I just want to pause on one thing because I don’t disagree with you that I actually think Mr. Ryan is a great choice for this role, but I want us to be super careful when we use the language ‘hard worker,'” she told Aguilar.

    “I actually keep an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall because it is a reminder about what hard work looks like.”

    “In the context of relative privilege,” Perry added, “when you talk about work-life balance and being a hard worker, the moms who don’t have health care… we don’t call them hard workers. We call them failures. We call them sucking off the system.”

    She is simply the most racist and devisive person on national TV today. She has become what Louise Farakam was, without the music.

    In Melissa's defense, she has no control over what pops into that empty head of hers - and even less ability to prevent it from then spewing forth out of her impediment ridden mouth.

    Plughead thinks judging "Piff the Magic Dragon" for 15 million a year is "hard work". Just like working in cotton fields - same thing.

    if shes trying to say they dont work as hard as construction workers or whatever, thats a reasonable point.
    most ppl work 3X as many days?
    if one is trying to get a new job, he dont have to do the current job?
    were any greats bills written in the last few years?

    like @LawyerLarry always says hard work is for poor people and its frowned upon at Larry inc. @ClintDagger never had to work at anything ever in his life he's always been the best. @tradioguy69 dosent even have to work on a tan cause he naturally has the glow of winning. @MrPPV once almost had to work on getting a 10 out of the compound. well i think me and @EDDIEVRULZ are going to work on getting a buzz.
