Joy Reid Guest Michael Dyson: Winsome Sears a “Black Mouth” That “Justifies and Legitimates the White Supremacist Practices”
“The problem is here they want White supremacy by ventriloquist effect.”
Joy Reid of MSNBC hit a new low this week, and that’s saying something. Reid nodded along affirmatively, as guest Professor Michael Eric Dyson described VA Lt. Governor-Elect Winsome Sears as a puppet for white supremacy.
Reid and Dyson are the racists here. Not Winsome Sears and not the people who voted for her and Youngkin.
FOX News reports:
Liberal MSNBC guest calls Winsome Sears a ‘Black mouth’ for ‘White supremacist practices’
Liberal commentator Michael Eric Dyson called Virginia’s incoming lieutenant governor Winsome Sears a “Black mouth” of White supremacy on Thursday in what critics called a “repugnant” segment on MSNBC.
Sears, a Jamaican migrant and Marine Corps veteran, became the first Black woman elected to the position in Virginia on Tuesday. She declared herself the embodiment of the American dream and that her victory had destroyed “all of the narratives about race.”
That apparently didn’t sit well on MSNBC, as “The Reidout” host Joy Reid said Republicans “demand credit” for voting for Black candidates. Dyson, a frequent MSNBC guest, agreed with Reid and called Sears a “Black mouth” for “White supremacist practices.”
This is the full quote from Dyson:
“You are doing what all political figures what must do: make choices,” Dyson said. “The problem is here they want White supremacy by ventriloquist effect. There is a Black mouth moving but a White idea … running on the runway of the tongue of a figure who justifies and legitimates the White supremacist practices. We know that we can internalize in our own minds, in our own subconscious, in our own bodies the very principles that are undoing us. So to have a Black face speaking in behalf of a White supremacist legacy is nothing new.”

A disgusting and hateful display. MSNBC should be ashamed of broadcasting this filth, and make no mistake, that’s just what it is. Filth.
Here are a few Twitter reactions:
Despicable comments about Winsome Sears. Also, the venom these people regularly spew against white people is acceptable? It shouldn’t be. https://t.co/xHAoFxe7OH

This is one of the most repugnant and racist segments broadcast by a TV network this this year. The message could not be clearer:
People of color are duty-bound to recite liberal orthodoxy and pledge loyalty to the DNC, and those who don't are brainless puppets being used: https://t.co/RKsVoVlktx

Michael Dyson is an esteemed professor at Vanderbilt.
He’s considered an intellectual giant on the left. He has all the credentials society has put immense value on. He’s a reverend.
If that scumbag doesn’t show you the extent of our institutional rot, nothing will. https://t.co/vT9exmCewf

The Winsome Sears team responded by reminding Reid that Sears has offered to appear on her show.

They might want to consider reaching out to MSNBC and demanding a public, on-the-air apology.
