MSNBC host Joy Reid says that there’s a “great amount of racism and anti-blackness” in the United States as evidenced by the fact that the 2020 presidential election is so close.

“I think partly because we knew the red wave was a thing, the red mirage, I should say, we all knew it was coming,” Reid told fellow MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. “In the moment, it’s aggravating. And I think partly, and I said this last night, I do think it’s because we’ve been reporting for five years, Rachel, about Russia … undermining our national security, the impeachment, the racism, the Nazis, all of it and then COVID laying on top of it, [it] felt like a repudiation was coming.”
Reid added that a lot of people also believe that political correctness is “some scheme to destroy white America.” – READ MORE
