  1. Alexi,

    I am a black woman like you. What you have said about Asian eyes is very hateful and ungodly. You have no right making comments on what Almighty GOD has created. You need to ask the Lord Jesus for forgiveness He is A merciful and loving GOD and he will forgive you. While you are asking for forgiveness pray for healing in this country. I will be praying for you.

    Remember the Lord Jesus Christ loves you and it is the sin that controls you he hates.

  2. Alexi I love you and I am so proud of you. Keep being yourself and you don’t have to be anyone else but you. I love you just the way you are Beautiful, Intelligent and shape.

  3. Really Dude?

    Know she’s well educated accomplished thought-provoking classy reporter.

    Her signature, self-confidence displayed while reporting well source facts; free of opinion.

  4. Robert Padernacht, PhD

    Yes, you are very intelligent. However, to truly be at the top of your game, you need some kind of SIGNATURE saying or delivery verbiage that separates you from the pack. Study Edward R. Murrow or Walter Cronkite’s verbiage and unique style. Make being a woman an asset. I like Leslie Stahl, Barbara Walters, etc because they have a signature style…I think you’ll be grand!

  5. Alexi,
    Thank you for being on MSNBC occasionally. You are brilliant and beautiful
    Not so bad.
    I’m asking you and other smart journalists to:
    Please expose what “Q…” is all about
    Please debunk such far and wide. The little I’ve already learned is damn scary.
    Thank you
    Bruce Stillman

    1. Alexi, I love you and I am so proud of you. Keep being yourself and you don’t have to be anyone else but you. I love you just the way you are…Beautiful, intelligent, and in great shape.

  6. L F. Nomad. There are 0 to 13 or 14 years before High School so, yes that’s enough time to be “raised” elsewhere.

  7. If she attended high school in Rockford, Illinois, she wasn’t “raised in Chicago” as stated. Rockford, IL. is about 90 miles from Chicago and until recently was the second largest city in Illinois.
