MSNBC host Joy Reid affirmed this week the horrendous suggestion that race played a role in the apparently botched law enforcement response to the Uvalde mass killing.
While speaking with María Teresa Kumar, president and CEO of Voto Latino, about the upcoming election, Reid said that Hispanic voters should take into consideration where they live, citing Uvalde and the police response.
"[It] doesn’t take eleven minutes for the police to respond to an active shooter call. That was the first thing that got my spidey senses going. Because in wealthy communities, it don't take eleven minutes. You got your sirens on. You're motoring down— and it took that long to even respond at all? That got me very concerned," Reid said.
Kumar agreed with Reid, and she claimed a Texas state senator voiced the same concern to her. Kumar did not identity that politician.
