Joy Reid: How America’s Social Construction Of Race Impacts Voting Rights Today

The GOP backlash against reviewing American history and promoting anti-racism education, which many Republicans wrongly call critical race theory, is a reaction to White Americans becoming more 'woke' on matters of race, Joy Reid says. 'Race isn't a biological reality,' she explains. 'It's a cultural construct.'

  1. ” your precious founding fathers”-joy Reid

    If want hear about Racism Every day in everything just come and watch …

    1. @N 827 And what then do you think is the matter with that? And if you do have a certain worry or concern about her speaking so much about race, I’m want to then think that you would have and even more intense reaction to know that our founding sacred ‘forefathers’ went way past talking about it as often as you point out that Joy does….AND ACTUALLY OWNED BLACK PEOPLE! Compared to your criticism of Joy, don’cha think that was the more egregious action? Then again, I wouldn’t be in the least bit surprised, that you likely wouldn’t see it that way at all, humpf!

    2. min 1:08 ” Race is not biology…” Correct. It is an IDEOLOGY. Now my question is : Since “race” is an ideology, can I choose to OPT out? Refuse to accept is as a valid social premise? (like Communism, royalty or wealth?)

  2. If states want to suppress votes of people of color, if they want to nullify votes than the government should reject the outcome of their results (pretty simple). If my vote doesn’t count, my taxes shouldn’t either.

    1. This person is just desperately trying to stay relevant by being as hyperbolic and divisive as possible

    2. min 1:08 ” Race is not biology…” Correct. It is an IDEOLOGY. Now my question is : Since “race” is an ideology, can I choose to OPT out? Refuse to accept is as a valid social premise? (like Communism, royalty or beauty?)

    3. @LG Roots smart blacks accept it, the other morons think an I’d requirement is racist… what a shock

  3. That guy should read:
    ‘Stolen: Five Free Boys Kidnapped Into Slavery and Their Astonishing Odyssey Home’
    By: Richard Bell

  4. I’m from New Orleans Louisiana I live blocks from where plessy versus Ferguson have taken place. Right off St. Claude avenue in the historic Bywater and marigny area is an historical plaque that tell you the spot where everything have taken place at.

    1. Vmin 1:08 ” Race is not biology…” Correct. It is an IDEOLOGY. Now my question is : Since “race” is an ideology, can I choose to OPT out? Refuse to accept is as a valid social premise? (like Communism, royalty or beauty?)

  5. Joy, I just love your commentary. Thank you for putting correct information out into the world. Day after day you’re improving humanity, one inch at a time.

  6. It’s not whether America was founded on slavery, but whether slavery and its legacy are in accord with America’s founding principles of justice, equality, and freedom for all.

  7. And how does “black” peoples’s continuation and support of the fallacy affect things? Want to fight racism? Stop calling people “black” and “white” to start with…

  8. min 1:18 “Europeans didnt even use the term “white”….” True, not one mention of the term ANYWHERE in thousands of years of Roman law , literature or documentation.

  9. min 1:08 ” Race is not biology…” Correct. It is an IDEOLOGY. Now my question is : Since “race” is an ideology, can I choose to OPT out? Refuse to accept is as a valid social premise? (like Communism, royalty or wealth?)
