Are you worried about inflation? What about gas prices? If so, that’s your white privilege rearing its ugly head according to one MSNBC network host. During a segment on the topics, Zerlina Maxwell expressed disgust over white people’s concerns.
“Inflation, it’s almost a privilege to care about inflation as your number one issue, uh, the same is true of gas prices, or even the idea that it’s the economy stupid,” Maxwell said.
Lamenting that as a Black woman she has to be more concerned about getting “killed on the way to [her] job” she insisted “there are so much broader things going on right now in this country that affects so many demographics, that the dollars to cents case that has been made time and again, like you said, it’s the economy stupid, there’s a blind spot there, and you’ll notice that the majority of people who make that statement are generally white.”
Isn’t it ironic, though, that MSNBC’s own parent company, NBC News, found via polling that “economic issues dominate as the top issue for voters” reports Outkick. Additionally, a separate poll from the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies learned that black Americans — not just privileged whites — are “deeply concerned about the economy.”
Outkick adds that the insanity doesn’t stop there at the network: “MSNBC has gone completely off its rocker. Earlier this week, an MSNBC regular, an odd character named Elie Mystal, called Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker a GOP-owned “negro” on air and then called any white person who supports Walker a racist.”
