RNC subtex - 'Brown people are dangerous'

MSNBC’s AM Joy host Joy Reid bemoaned in Tuesday’s early hours at the Republican National Convention (RNC) that Melania Trump’s plagiarized speech was unfortunately “the first of the night that didn’t have this subtext...that brown people are dangerous” to the point that Reid felt uncomfortable being around the RNC that she found to be so “not inclusive.”

Reid was joined by three other MSNBC/NBC News correspondents when she diverted the focus away from the topic at hand of plagiarism to fretting how “Melania Trump’s speech was the first of the night that didn’t have this substex — subtext that Avik Roy put on his social media which was that brown people are dangerous which was the kinda substex — subtext of the rest of the night.”
