Joy Reid Says Schools Tell Students ‘Slavery Was Not So Bad’

Videos by OutKick

Of all the lies told on TV to convince viewers that the country is evil and racist, how many come from Joy Reid? Considering that Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Jemele Hill, Bomani Jones (sort of), Chris Hayes, Anderson Cooper, the cast of The View, John Oliver, Ari Melber, and Stephen A. Smith are all on TV — 10% would sound like a lot. However, 10% seems about fair.

Over the weekend, she was at it again, letting the world know that Critical Race Theory doesn’t go far enough for her. According to Reid, students from kindergarten through high school are already taught “Confederate Race Theory,” so it’s time to raise the temperatures (just hopefully not in the form of riots):

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..

Students are taught “that slavery was not so bad.”

Hmm, exactly which schools do this? Joy Reid didn’t say, so stop wondering. To be safe, just take Reid’s word for her. In fact, spread the word.

We are lucky to have someone like Joy Reid reveal facts of which no other living human is aware.

Such as when Reid randomly claimed early this year that red states are only keeping black people alive so they can cook white people steaks. What exactly does that mean? Please, quit asking.

Two months ago, the highly-paid MSNBC host also baselessly tied Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to a sex trafficking ring. Sure, such an accusation could ruin his life, but Reid is only saying it’s possible. What’s wrong with that?

Oh, and who could forget:

Be thankful that someone has warned us.

By the way, can you imagine if a school actually claimed what Reid just made up?

  1. I have never heard anyone with a high school education say these things. I have never heard an educated person say the Civil War had nothing to do with slavery or that slavery wasn’t that bad. This is just nonsense. What I “have” heard repeatedly is the left creating caricatures of conservatives that do not actually exist. These creations come from their own delusions, and then they attack the caricature as though it’s real. In summary they create bogeymen to hate, and desperately need psychiatric care. This destructive and dishonest practice by the left is far more concerning to me.

  2. The Communist Democrat lefties have painted conservatives as aggressors for the past decade or two. Regular every day Americans have sensed something was not right with the trajectory of the country for many years. Taxpayers have said, “no one seems to be on my side, not my boss, not the government, not any political party”. There has been an unease for several years. The lefties have now exposed their anti white game. CRT is clearly the game plan. Not subtle. In your face bigotry and hate. They may have stepped in it. They have done America a great favor. Now we know what they think, and what their game plan is. It is not unclear. They have concretely defined themselves. There is no going back. Now we know what we are fighting against. What we are fighting for is our liberty. America Matters.

  3. I took United States History in 8th grade, 11th grade (Advanced Placement) and first semester of freshman year as an undergrad.

    My teachers/professor/grad assistant *never once* taught us that slavery in the United States was ‘not bad.’

    Nor was I ever informed that the Civil War had no connection to slavery, nor that lynchings/Reconstruction/Jim Crow never happened.



    • Yeah, no, she’s fulla shit. I went K-12 in FL public schools and we learned about all aspects of American history from Jamestown to the 9/11, the good and the bad;

      Declaration of Independence, guerilla warfare vs the Brits, Gettysburg, General Lee, Trail of Tears, slavery, reconstruction, 3/5th a vote, industrial revolution, WWII, etc.

      Not all sunshine and roses but an overall well-rounded education. I think many people (or anyone who actually paid attention in school) can state the same. The idea that we learned that “slavery wasn’t so bad” is complete horseshit.

  4. One of if not the dummest person on television, and there is a lot of competition but she is the worst. What does it say about our education system when it keeps churning out morons like this. I guess it goes to show you money may buy stuff but it can’t buy brains.

  5. I went to high school and college when they still taught history, without an agenda. I went to a high school that was 75% caucasian and EVERY teacher was caucasian. The history and government teachers never said slavery was good for black people. One of my history teachers, God rest her sould, was actually a member of the Daughters of the Confederacy. It wasn’t a career killer like it would be today.

    At the university level, my history teacher, both American and Texas, was deadly serious about history. He taught out of books purchased by the school, not his own, so he wouldn’t pass on any agenda. He never said slavery was great. He damned the Confederacy for pushing the nation into civil war. He was a son of the South.

    This woman has no filter from the 3 or 4 brain cells she has left and her pie-hole.

  6. Remember, mistreatment and limiting rights of blacks was for decades orchestrated by the Democratic Party. Past voting in Congress is there to see. She and her ilk are continuing to attempt revision of history.
