Joy Reid Says It’s Racist to Care About Russia-Ukraine

Videos by OutKick

MSNBC host Joy Reid says that only racists care about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Reid claims they have sympathy for dead Ukrainian people only because they are white and maybe a bit Christian.

“Let’s face it, the world is paying attention because this is happening in Europe. If this was happening anywhere else, would we see the same outpouring of support and compassion?” Reid asked rhetorically on Monday.

“We don’t need to ask ourselves if the international response would be the same if Russia unleashed their horror on a country that wasn’t white and largely Christian, because Russia has already done it. In Syria.

“The coverage of Ukraine has revealed a pretty radical disparity in how human Ukrainians look and feel to Western media compared to their browner and blacker counterparts, with some reporters using very telling comparisons in their analyses of the war,” Reid adds.

Which “telling comparisons” are reporters using “in their analyses of the war”? Reid doesn’t say. However, she hopes you don’t make her specify. It would ruin her entire monologue. It might even be racist to ask.

See, the complexities of war are outside of the wheelhouse of the far-Left. Reid is not alone. Recently, 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah-Jones declared that Europe is not a continent and called anyone who thinks otherwise a racist.

The left-wing media relies on shaming and race-baiting, not on actual expertise. The woke playbook does not include providing news updates and information, just accusations of racism.

Reid has particularly struggled to cover the Russia-Ukraine war to this point, both as a professional and in terms of raw numbers. Look at the ratings. No one is watching her at 7 pm.

Reid lacks the anchor skills to ask questions and doesn’t have a deep enough understanding of history or geopolitics to provide context for the event. She’s lost. So, naturally, Reid pivoted and redirected the story into her lane.

“This is a teachable moment for us in the media. We aren’t afraid to call out our own industry. There is a lot of soul-searching that we need to do in Western media,” Reid concludes.

Luckily, Reid doesn’t need to search her own soul. She knows exactly who she is: a race-baiting bigot now looking to weaponize dead civilians in Ukraine.

There are a lot of schmucks on television, but no one is worse than Joy Reid.

  1. What blows my mind is the fact that there are White people who watch this moron’s show. To accept being ridiculed and hated for your skin color demonstrates to me how some Whites in this country detest themselves.
    Harvard must be so proud of her.

  2. Look at the tribal bullshit happening in this comment section. This poor man’s Brian Stelter dunks on an MSNBC moron to reach his word quota for the day and you guys just lap it up.

    Is Reid’s racist theory intelligent analysis? Nope. But let’s stop pretending all these dumbasses who put “I stand with Ukraine” in their social media bios give a shit about anyone dying in Syria, Palestine, Libya, etc. They don’t. They’re fucking sheep.

  3. “Reid lacks the anchor skills to ask questions and doesn’t have a deep enough understanding of history or geopolitics to provide context for the event.”

    And you do Burack? All I got from this drivel was “Reid’s stupid and her rating suck. Watch Fox News because their parent company pays me to write glorified blogs.” Give me a break son.

  4. Believe NewsMax #s are inaccurate to say the least. Most of the people that I have dealings with are big fans of that network. I like the Five, Guttfeld and Jesse but Salcedo and Kelly are hugely popular.
