MSNBC host Joy Reid faced a brewing backlash on social media Monday after she boldly asserted that “most K-12 students” are taught that “slavery was not so bad” and “violence never happened.”
“Open question to those who are afraid of “critical race theory” (which isn’t being taught in K-12 schools; it’s a course offering in law schools, but you clearly are conflating it with the #1619Project.) What do you WANT taught about U.S. slavery and racism? Nothing? Or what?” posted Reid on Twitter.
Currently, most k-12 students already learn a kind of Confederate Race Theory, whereby the Daughters of the Confederacy long ago imposed a version of history wherein slavery was not so bad and had nothing to do with the civil war, and lynchings and violence never happened.

REID RAGE! MSNBC Host Says Close Presidential Election Proves America ‘Racist’ and ‘Anti-Woke’
MSNBC host Joy Reid found herself -once again- the center of a growing backlash on social media Thursday after claiming the close 2020 election proves that America is “racist” and “anti-woke.”
“I think even though we intellectually understand what America is at its base, right? That there is a great amount of racism, anti-blackness, anti-wokeness, this idea that political correctness is some sort of scheme to destroy white America, right? Like, we know what this country is, but still part of you — I think part of your heart says, ‘You know what, maybe the country’s going to pay off all of this pain,’” Reid said.
“As the night went on, and I realized, and it sunk in, OK that’s not happening. We are still who we thought, unfortunately,” Reid continued. “It’s disappointing. I emerge from this disappointed.”
Reid also came under fire after referring to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as “Uncle Clarence” during her Election Night coverage.

“If somehow they manage to stumble into the Supreme Court, do any of you guys trust Uncle Clarence and [Justice] Amy Coney Barrett and those guys to actually follow the letter of the law?
“No. I mean, it is a completely politicized Supreme Court that you can’t just trust that they’re going to do the right thing. But so far, the courts have actually been pretty good. So we’ll see,” Reid said.

REID RAGE! MSNBC Host Says ‘Zero Evidence’ that BLM Has Ever Pushed for Violence Against Police’
MSNBC host Joy Reid exploded on live television following the final presidential debate; claiming the Black Lives Matter organization has never promoted anti-police violence anywhere in the United States.
“That ‘Pigs in a Blanket’ line was an off-shoot, separate group of people. Nobody knows who they are! Not a single person knows who those people were!” claimed Reid.
“There is absolutely zero, none, zero evidence that Black Lives Matter has ever pushed for anything violent, pushed for anything violent to happen to police,” she added. “Black Lives Matter is about one thing: Stop killing black people just because you pulled them over for a moving violation!”
