Watch: MSNBC's Joy Reid Can't Contain Herself During Guest's Racial TIRADE...

Written by Published

In a recent episode of MSNBC, host Joy Reid was seen chuckling as her guest, Elie Mystal, the justice correspondent for The Nation, launched into a racially charged tirade against Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas and other prominent black Republicans and conservatives.

According to the Daily Caller, Mystal's comments came in response to Reid's reference to a report from Fix the Court, which alleges that Justice Thomas has received over $4 million in gifts during his time on the Supreme Court. Mystal questioned the motives behind these alleged gifts, suggesting that they were given in exchange for Thomas' conservative rulings and viewpoints.

Mystal stated, I think its important for people to ask what are these people paying for? What are they getting for their $4 million they have given to Clarence Thomas over the past 20 years? What theyre getting, just to link your last segment together, what theyre getting is what Byron Donalds wants. What theyre getting is Jim Crow. What theyre getting is a guy like Clarence Thomas who like Byron Donalds entire judicial philosophy is that well, some negroes are magic. No matter what the white man does to us, we can just rise above as long as they dont shoot us or kill us or rape us or drown us. If you tell people that, if youre black, if youre Donalds, if youre Thomas and you tell white people that, they will give you money.

Mystal continued his critique, stating, Thats whats happened to Clarence Thomas for 20 years. Hes told white folks exactly what they want to hear, ruled exactly as they would like him to rule. And done it as their black friend, and so the money is just pouring out, and you see it in these reports where, again, Clarence Thomas in the figures that we saw today, you know, Sam Alito made like $200,000 [in] disclosed gifts over the past 20 years. Antonin Scalia, the hero of their movement, around $200,000. Clarence Thomas, $4 million.

The conversation also touched on Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida, a potential vice presidential pick for former President Donald Trump, who had a heated exchange with Reid earlier that day over black family marriage rates.

Reid's reaction to Mystal's comments was a simple shake of the head and the remark, Its wild.

Mystal concluded his tirade by stating, Thats why Tim Scott exists, thats why Byron Donalds exists, thats why Candace Owens exists, because the grift is good. Theres a lot of money in telling white folks what they need to hear.
