But in 2016 the 20 Lou Brock 1939 2020 St Louis Cardinals 1964 1979 Hall of Fame signature thank you for the memories shirt Additionally,I will love this network returned to her with a new offer. This time they handed her two hours on weekends that fit her style. Watching her on AM JOY, one saw someone who could explain the human costs of the Trump years. She was there as a mother, as an immigrant when addressing children kept in cages. She was there as a Black woman, able to express the understandable outrage of a community, whose rage is only now fully understood. She was there as the quasi-prosecutor, ready to take on guests who came on without full comprehension of the issues. But this attention has brought increased, well-deserved scrutiny. Reid is currently involved in a libel suit with a Trump supporter she attacked Twitter without, she would admit, a clear understanding of the events. (She cannot comment on the matter.) When homophobic rants from her now-defunct blog from the 2000s reemerged, she fumbled through the episode, giving explanations, none of which made much sense. Reid said someone must have hacked her work, that she didn’t believe she—the mother of an LGBTQ woman—was capable of writing those words. Later, other offensive columns came to light. She railed via tweet against a piece by conservative writer David French without actually reading the article. She apologized for all of them. It was definitely one of those times when you really realize how important it is, the relationships that you have, because the people I have who are LGBT in my world, in my life, really were just so understanding,” Reid says of the bizarre blog-post drama. “So loving. It just really made me even more determined to be as good of an ally as possible. And so that’s what I’ve tried to be. Over the past few months, Reid has witnessed an entire nation’s belief system on race radically evolve. Following the killing of George Floyd in May and the worldwide protests that followed, America seems ready, finally ready, to take in the very things she’s spoken on for years. Before the hoodie became a menacing totem for the alt-right in Florida, Reid fretted over her children’s clothes. She wasn’t worried about other kids. She feared something else.
