Wow, this is a sad woman. She seems to me like she lives and breathes hatred towards Trump AND white people in general. In other words, a racist herself, while she is forever ranting and raving about racism. It's all us dumb whites without college degrees that are solely supporting him. :rolleyes:


MSNBC’s Joy Reid: Trump Represents A Time When People Of Color And Women ‘Knew Their Place’

In a column published Friday at NBC News Digital (https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/seeds-trump-s-victory-were-sown-moment-obama-won-ncna811891), MSNBC’s Joy Reid argues that Donald Trump’s presidency represents a time when women and members of minorities “knew their place” — “which is not in the White House.”

Reid’s opinion piece, titled, “The Seeds of Trump’s Victory Were Sown the Moment Obama Won,” also suggests that only uneducated white people support Trump.

“It’s no coincidence that Trump’s dismal but stable approval ratings, stuck in the upper 30s, are propped up solely by support from majorities of white men and white Americans without a college degree, while his numbers are middling among all white Americans and deeply under water with every one else.”

“‘Economic anxiety’ didn’t elect Trump. The desire of millions of Americans, from the farms to the suburbs, to see Mexican immigrants deported, a wall erected across the U.S. southern border and Muslims banned from entering this country did,” Reid also writes.


Black folks are 12% of the nation. Trump won over 60+ million votes. And yet she thinks a racial divide explains his victory.

This is white America's reaction to the death of the post-racial myth.

Nine months into the Donald Trump administration, the United States seems eons removed from the country that just nine years ago elected its first black president.

Yet the racial divide that Trump demonstrated with his narrow Electoral College win was always there.

President Barack Obama read to a certain portion of white America as an unending attack on white Christian identity, centrality and cultural relevance. In their minds, he was seeking to end their right to bear arms and the right of conservatives to speak freely.

For this group of Americans, Trump has been the corrective. As Ta-Nehisi Coates points out in his brilliant Atlantic essay, “The First White President,” for Trump’s supporters, his election was itself the point. Putting a human wrecking ball against political correctness, feminism, multiculturalism and even decency was the ballgame.

Obama’s election masked this fierce racial schism for only a few short months. That ended the moment he declared, in July of his first year in the Oval Office, that a white Cambridge police officer acted “stupidly” for arresting a black college professor — and long-time Obama friend and mentor — outside his own home.
