Last month, we reported that ESPN host Sage Steele had been suspended after blasting her network’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate as “sick” and criticizing Barack Obama. Now, MSNBC host Tiffany Cross is lashing out at her, CNN’s Van Jones, and MSNBC anchor Carlos Watson, saying that while they are both black, they do not count as “black voices.”
“Okay, Carlos Watson, Sage Steele, Van Jones. What do these three folks have in common? Well, they’re all people who’ve been prompted up by wealthy or powerful white Americans, and yet we, the keepers of the culture, don’t really rock with any of them like that,” Cross said on her show, according to Daily Caller. “Now, obviously, the three of these folks are most definitely black faces. However, they are not necessarily black voices. And there’s a difference.”
Cross specifically cited Steele’s “half-witted, self-hating remarks” in which she said Obama “chose” black as his race. Steele had said during a podcast that she found it “fascinating” that Obama identified himself as black on his census questionnaire, given that his white mother raised him.
“I’m like, ‘Well, congratulations to the president. That’s his thing,'” she said. “I think that’s fascinating considering his Black dad was nowhere to be found, but his White mom and grandma raised him, but hey, you do you. I’m going to do me.”
This did not sit well with the liberal Cross.
“That is undoubtedly a black face, whether or not she knows it,” Cross said, alleging that Steele was “spewing … nonsense.”
Cross went on to attack Jones as “Jeff Bezos’ black friend.” She appeared to take issue with Bezos’ donation of $100 million to Jones to give to charity while comparing Jones’ apparent compliment of former President Donald Trump when he mentioned: “the good stuff he has done for the Black community.”
Cross then slammed white people for donating money to people who are “not invited to the cookout” like Watson and Jones, rather than donating money to other platforms geared toward the black community.
“A word of advice to the landscape of the rich and powerful: Perhaps instead of investing in people of color who make you comfortable, you may want to give a second look to those of us who make you uncomfortable. After all, we’ve been uncomfortable for a mighty long time,” she concluded.
The racism of the leftist media never ceases to amaze. Check out Cross’s full rant below.
