MSNBC’s Joy Reid continues stoking racial division

Joy Reid, host of MSNBC’s The ReidOut, continues to stoke racial division even while her ratings nosedive.

According to the latest numbers, The ReidOut has lost 20 percent of its viewers just in the weeks since President Donald Trump left office.

On Wednesday, Reid and two guests alleged voters in red states don’t care if African Americans and other people of color die so long as long as they“get their behinds into the factory and make me my steaks, make me my stuff, get there and do my nails.”

MSNBC contributors Jason Johnson and Dr. Kavita Patel criticized red states including Mississippi and Texas for relieving mask mandates and opening up businesses.

Reid said that Texas had engaged in “nonsensical and dangerous anti-scientific” behavior by continuing to reopen their states and drop mask mandates.

Not mentioned were was the scientific data which shows states with no mask mandates have the same or lower Covid exposure and rates as those with mandates and substantial continuing lockdowns.

Reid, without evidence, insisted that Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) purposefully “left millions of Texans literally in the cold” during last month’s winter storm because he believed “Texans apparently also don’t need light and heat.”

Patel alleged that parts of Mississippi didn’t have a vaccination site within 90 minutes of their location but blamed it on systemic racism, with Republicans harming minorities and “slapp[ing] down” “health professionals.”

Reid agreed and charging that these red states represented “necropolitics, which is essentially the politics of who gets to live and who gets to die and these states — what they have in common is that they have structures which say that black and brown lives matter less.”

Johnson went so far as to say that “The Hunger Games would be more humane” for minorities like themselves because they “at least…would have a chance” to “fight for vaccines.”

Nowhere in the discussion was it mentioned how the Biden administration is now responsible for the distribution of vaccines to states and territories. The President has said it is his goal to have 100 million vaccines distributed by the end of April. That goal was already on track of being met at the end of the Trump administration which was seeing over 1 million people vaccinated per day.
