Joy Reid Rips Apart Donald Trump’s Misinformed Analysis of Crime in American Cities


On Sunday’s edition of NBC‘s Meet The Press, MSNBC journalist Joy Reid tackles presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump’s recent comments proclaiming that heavily Black populated cities like Ferguson, Missouri and Oakland, California are some of the most dangerous.

Atlanta Black Star reported that Ferguson and Oakland did not even make the list of 50 most dangerous cities in the world. However, American cities such as St. Louis, Detroit, Baltimore and New Orleans did — with St. Louis ranking highest on the list at 15th. New Orleans was ranked low at 32nd.

Joy Reid was having none of that. This is what she said about Trump’s misinformed accusation:

“… That’s not even a dog whistle, it’s a bullhorn. Right? And the thing that’s interesting is that Donald Trump up to now has really not gone after African-Americans as directly as he has obviously Mexican migrants and Muslims and others. But I think it’s implied there, and it’s one of the reasons that he can’t get out of single digits or improve where Republicans currently stand with people of color. Trust me that’s the kind of people who will be protesting in Cleveland, the folks that will be outside of that arena, they hear that dog whistle as a bullhorn, and they will respond. I can tell you that they’re not going to respond to a candidate that has an ethno-nationalistic message.”

  1. Joy Reid claims Blacks were prosperous under Bill and Hillary Clinton when facts tells us differentl.Joy Reid is a tool for MSNBC and in the pocket of Hillary Clinton.She has NO CREDIBILITY whatsoever.

  2. Michael Fox That's exactly what she said on HARDBALL to explain the blind loyalty Black folks loyalty to the Clintons. I don't care what she wrote in her book but she has totally sold her intergrity for a second shot at fame and fortune.

  3. Michael Fox says:

    Heyward Johnson, anyone that would say that Joy Read has said that Black people were prosperous under Bill and Hilary Clinton. Is either intentionally misquoting Joy Read or has no idea who Joy Read and most certainly has not read her book recently published in 2015 called ""FRACTURED" ( Barack Obama and the Clintons and the racial divide). I highly recommend this book to anyone who can read ).
