MSNBC commentator Joy Reid said: “Right now, first of all, there is a huge boom in it there is a big career advancement in it. If you want to be Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, any brown or black person who is willing to say conservative stuff, this is your moment. You can make a lot of money, get a lot of attention, get a lot of love from the right, because they really do need brown and black faces to start saying this script.

“But the problem is in order to fit in as a minority conservative, you really almost have to be even further to the right than typical conservatives. You have to mouth verbatim all of the party’s beliefs, because if you stray one bit, you are held in suspicion. So Rubio is caught in that matrix.”

    We should be able to discuss race issues without being accused of racism. This shouldn't be a taboo subject. People need to stop demanding people's jobs because they mention something about race. Too many people have been fired for this nonsense already.

    WTH is so racist about that statement? Have you teabaggers on the right actually listened to the trash Herman Cain spoke? How about Cruz or Rubio? In order for those guys to be "accepted" they've had to say more outlandish crap than their white counterparts!

    I heard her entire segment and I can't imagine how anyone with a teaspoon of brains could think she was being racist. She was accusing the Republican party of exploiting it's racial/cultural minority members, (what few there are) and keeping them on a extremely tight leash at the same time they want to try to push them to the front in order to give the appearance of being less racist while actually still being ferociously racist. Joy is one very smart commentator but I don't think she's got a magic wand and that's what it would take to make the point that the Republicans are still fundamentally racist, using a rash of examples and facts as she did while managing to give a racist message at the same time. Listen to her entire commentary at that time - you can find it easy enough and make up your own minds. The claim that she was being racist is DOA.

    She didn't say anything racist. She said that the Right needs something other then old rich white guys or minorities are not going to listen to them. She's telling the truth.

    Joy is just stating facts.As usual,the RWNJ everyday working Serfs that make up the Stupid Party are too stupid to process the information.Even though they are the very people guilty of the activity.The Republican Racist/Sexist RWNJs are caught in their own bigoted beliefs.RWNJs are attempting to conduct AFFIRMATIVE ACTION for their Political Survival without being accused of doing so.Remember the RWNJ Conservatives are against Affirmative Action.UNTIL it is in their interest to regain power and wealth by recruiting Marco,a good old angelo name,Rubio to attrack the Latino vote and Ben,a good old slave name,Carson to attrack the Afro vote.Who is being racist????

    Don't see any racism in her statements at all; merely a statement of fact. The GOP must be desparate to recruit suitable black and brown members and candidates, as they are evidently so unappealing to ethnic minority voters.
    BTW, how desparate must they be to promote Ben Carson in the way they do? He doesn't believe in evolution, and thinks fiscal policy should be based on a book of fairy tales. I have plenty of respect for what he does in his job, but he should really stick to that and keep his nose out of matters political.

    She speaks the truth. Rubio has big party problems right now. In full blown panic because they repelled Hispanic voters in the last election, Republicans are in great need of attracting Hispanic voters.... enter Rubio. Marco doesn't want to be viewed as a sell out to his Hispanic family/friends, a panderer. He also wants to tow the party line of the GOP base. And he is a Tea Party darling and cannot afford to chap them . Actually he could and should.

    The only thing he can do is come up with an immigration bill that is attractive to the electorate, the base, and the Tea Party. What are the chances ?

    As for Dr. Carson, an eloquent speaker, it's unclear why he is appearing everywhere. Does he really have political aspirations or is he pushing his book?

    Ben Carson became an overnight sensation in the republican echo chamber because they discovered hes a conservative. Thats a fact and the only racism is the fact that the GOP scrambles over themselves to find a non caucasion to represent them.

    She assumes that people like Ben Carson only are conservative as a means to become the next big thing. She assumes blacks must be democrats unless there is some deviant reason for them not to be.

    She never said or implied anything like that at all, although a very good case could be made for it. The party is so blatantly racist and sexist sociologists study Black, Hispanic, Gay, and Female Republicans with great fascination. Still, the point Joy was making was NOT about those people being Republicans, it was about how Republicans have been treating those who are part of that party. You've got the thing on inside out.

    You don't understand what racism is. Time to do a little research. Bigfoot's statement made no sense to you at all and if you had any understanding of racism at all what he/she said would have clicked. It's ok - you've just got a really long way to go before any of this will make sense to you.

    There is nothing that she says here that I personally disagree with. Its really quite true.

    While the republicans are getting their arms around the fact that the country's demographics are indeed changing and if they don't get a handle on why they are losing and going to continue to lose important elections, the Right still doubles down on all the reasons why they lost and will continue to lose. Setting out the likes of Rubio and Carson simply isn't going to cut it. While they represent those changing demographics, they still adhere to the same policies and republican mission that is getting them beaten regardless.

    Really, maybe you can explain why the house republicans were not beaten...Just to prove you don't have a clue of what you are talking about I will ask you one simple question, and that is, 0bama is out there saying he cut $2.5 trillion in spending, however what they are not telling you is what he has added to the deficit which over the past four years is $5.9 TRILLION. I ask you, how did 0bama cut spending if he is adding to the deficit?
