“It reminds a lot of people of something… oh, the Brett Kavanaugh hearing. In it Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused by a high school friend of sexually abusing her, wept during hearings to make him a permanent member and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. . ”
She continued and said,
“And his [Kavanaugh’s] the tears turned out stronger than the tears of Christine Blasey Ford [his accuser]. But in America, there is a problem with both white vigilance and white tears, especially men’s white tears. Really white tears in general, because, that’s what Karens, right? ”

One user tweeted,
“Joy Reid openly shows her racism targeting WHITE tears…especially against white men and saying they are all dishonest. This overt racism should not be tolerated. RACE is meant to have no tears or emotions… Science doesn’t recognize race. ”
Another person tweeted,
“If Joy Reid focused on real issues in America, she would be a responsible journalist, but instead she cries about white supremacy, help me find out what is facts rather than opinions.”
While another user simply writes,
“You can be black and racist. Joy Reid proves this.”
However, there are some people who agree with Reid.
