From the Chicago Tribune:
“Devastated” when Chicagoan Desiree Rogers stepped down as White House social secretary, blogger Monica Mingo of Montgomery County, Md., started an online support group to mark the departure of a woman she regards as smart, elegant, accomplished and more.
“She is flyness — the epitome of flyness,” Mingo, 40, judges.
Within minutes of Rogers’ “astonishing” resignation Friday, Mingo and a friend created a Facebook group, “Toast to Ms. Desiree Rogers, White House Social Secretary.”
It had 225 members as of Wednesday night.
Mingo has never met Rogers — she saw her once at a trendy restaurant in Georgetown — but laments that too few women of color are lauded for entertaining or interior decorating, naming B. Smith and Sheila Bridges as exceptions.
