Joy Reid and MSNBC: Apologize for Anti-Muslim Bigotry

Joy Reid and MSNBC: Apologize for Anti-Muslim Bigotry

Joy Reid must apologize for spreading the false, dangerous myth that Muslims are inherently radical and violent and MSNBC needs to take action to ensure anti-Muslim bigotry has no place on its network.

Why is this important?

Muslims have been gunned down in their homes and houses of worship by people who believe in the very same hateful, false smears that Reid shared on her program.

This is a longstanding pattern of Reid’s, who has spread anti-Muslim bigotry on her blog in the past and continues to do so on her platform on MSNBC today.


Reasons for signing

  • People who call themselves Christians can be pretty radical and dangerous, too.
  • You can like the person and not agree with everything they say. These comments were inappropriate, racist and demeaning to a particular population and I'm sure Ms. Reid doesn't accept that when splken with regard to African Americans. We all need to apologize when we have caused harm whether consciously or unconsciously.
  • Radicalization can and does happen in any religious or ideological group. To single out Muslims on national media without providing context or alternative examples is dangerous and irresponsible in our current climate.
