MSNBC news anchor Joy Ann Reid says she only got into Harvard because of Affirmative Action. The often controversial liberal news host recalled her time growing up in a majority-black town in Colorado when she got recruited into the prestigious school. Reid says she was not allowed to attend some of the higher-end schools in the area. Reid also did not have access to “college prep” as some of her future classmates had.
The Harvard recruiter flew to her small town in Denver and, in Reid’s words, “affirmatively” pulled her into the school. Then, upon her first year at the Ivy League institution, Reid says she was the victim of bullying. She says the white students pointed at her and other black students and said that the only reason they got into the college is because of Affirmative Action. Strangely, she would cite this as some sort of bullying when their claims match her own.
Reid went on to say that many other black Ivy League alumni, such as Kentaji Brown-Jackson and Clarence Thomas got in because of Affirmative Action. This line of thinking is dangerous and actually racist. There is no concrete evidence that Affirmative Action is the vehicle that got them into Harvard. Maybe, just maybe, Joy Reid, Kentaji Brown-Jackson, and Clarence Thomas were intelligent enough on their own merit to gain acceptance into a prestigious institution and Affirmative Action was not necessary.
