Starved for viewership, the flailing host of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” couldn’t help but accuse the National Football League (NFL) of racism Monday after the Super Bowl, even as it is reported that her own network is realizing what a toxic, race-baiting waste of money she is for its bottom line.

Joy Reid began her show with the obligatory attention paid to rapper Eminem who knelt during his allotted portion of the big game’s halftime show in a hackneyed homage to failed ex-quarterback Colin Kaepernick. While a full roster is not available, Eminem appeared to be the sole white person performing in the massive show, but that didn’t stop Reid from leveling accusations against the league for “sanitizing blackness.”

“The NFL has always tried to sanitize blackness especially during the Super Bowl from the halftime performances to players taking a knee, and it especially does not want to dabble in the culture wars now and tick off the conservative fan base,” Reid said.

“Which explains why Kendrick Lamar’s line ‘and we hate the popo’ was noticeably scrubbed last night,” guest Jason Johnson fired back.

“Don’t think we didn’t notice,” Reid added.

She went on with her usual and now tiresome anti-white diatribes against phantom racism.

“I fell out of love with the game because it just became very clear that this was a sport with a lot of black people in it but not black people with power. No coaches, very few people allowed to get into the quarterback spot. And that coach thing really hurts my spirit, and it’s difficult for me to love the game. Anything that these guys do that is disruptive, I’m for it,” Reid said.

Fox News reported that columnist Michael Harriot also criticized the NFL as well as Eminem for protesting for black causes while the protest “meant nothing.”

“He successfully got applause for doing something that meant nothing and I think that’s kind of like the epitome of what the NFL has become. They scrawled ‘end racism’ in the end zone but they will kick Black people out of the league for talking about or pointing at the problem that racism gives America, right? So I think he did it but it doesn’t mean anything. It’s too late now,” Harriot said.

Considering that the NFL is 70 percent black (the NBA is 74.2 percent black) and not “diverse” by any measurable standard, it is laughable that Reid continues to point to race as the defining factor in everything she sees – even if it isn’t there.

Podcaster Bomani Jones closed the segment with a non-sensical and boorish assertion on the capitalism which they all enjoy, commenting, “That’s the story of American racism. It is in spite of good sense and even in spite of your potential to profit.”
