Black Dentist Forced To Resign All-White Dental Practice Over Support For Michael Brown
Dr. Misee Harris, a pediatric dentist best known as the “Black Bachelorette,” was forced to resign from her dental practice after supporting slain teen Michael Brown and the Ferguson, Missouri protesters on social media.
According to Tiffany Willis at Liberal America, Dr. Harris was beloved and respected by staff and patients at the dental practice where she had been offered a partnership, until those in charge turned on her.

Dr. Harris was called into a meeting and presented with screenshots from her private Facebook page. Harris had blocked colleagues from accessing her account and she was told that a doctor who is a partner at the office, and who led the meeting, had a friend spy on her Facebook page.
The images were captured and sent to the doctor who led the meeting.
Black Girl Nerds reports:
Misee was then told that some of her Facebook posts about recent racial issues in America were “unprofessional.” The biggest bone of contention to the partners was a cartoon (see graphic below) related to the recent police murders of several innocent African-Americans across the nation. The partner held up the picture and asked Misee “Do you think we (meaning Misee’s white colleagues) are all like this?”
This was the image her colleagues took issue with:
And now the dental practice consists solely of white employees. I’m pretty sure she’ll be alright, considering her Tweet below:
How dare an independent, educated black woman have an opinion. It must be a Republican thing:
Case in point: Right before the last presidential election, in 2012 Dr. Misee Harris was invited to a dinner with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, as part of her involvement on an Obama campaign team. At that time, her employer advised her not to go because, “We’re all Republicans here,” and that “President Obama was the one responsible for the financial ruin of his office.” I was expressly told at the time, “People who wanted to work for him should not be siding with Obama.”
