Every issue covered by MSNBC’s Joy Reid is filtered through her race bait tinted spectacles, and the conflict over Ukraine is no different.
In a broadcast Monday, Reid stated that more people care about what is going on in Ukraine than they usually do about crises in other foreign nations because the people there are white and Christians.
Reid cited Yemen, where Saudi Arabia, with the backing of the U.S. is essentially waging a war against Iran, resulting in horrific humanitarian consequences for the local population.
Reid suggested that people don’t care as much about that though because those people are brown.
The host stated “We should also care this much for refugees and those facing occupation and war in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, too,” adding “The coverage of Ukraine has displayed a pretty radical disparity of how human Ukrainians look and feel to Western media compared to their browner and blacker counterparts.”
Reid then aired footage of Western news agencies suggesting that what has happened in Ukraine is shocking because it is a “civilized” and “European” country.
“Hm, ‘civilized.’ Let’s face it. The world is paying attention because this is happening in Europe,” Reid proclaimed, adding “if this was happening anywhere else, would we be seeing the same outpour of support and compassion?”
She continued, “We don’t need to ask ourselves if our response would be the same if Russia unleashed their horror on a country that wasn’t white and largely Christian.”
Riiiight, opposing this war is a bit racist because the victims are white.
“This is a teachable moment for us in the media,” Reid further asserted, adding “There is a lot of soul searching that we need to do in Western media about why some wars and lives seem to matter more than others. And why some refugees get the welcome mat, while others get the wall.”
It seems that Reid will literally throw race at anything in a sad attempt to hold onto her tiny extremist audience.
