MSNBC host Tiffany Cross characterized the truck driving industry as populated by "a lot of white men" who she says "overwhelmingly voted for" former President Donald Trump. Cross, who is the author of Say It Louder! Black Voters, said Sunday on Cross Connection that she is worried because her brother is a truck driver . She said it "feels like a dangerous industry." Cross questioned her guest, CrossCountry Truck Driving School owner and president Pamela Day, about how the industry can become more "welcoming" to drivers of color. "This is an industry populated by a lot of white men over the


Any industry that requires hard work will be full of Trump voters.

This same a**wipe will be complaining about how much it costs to renovate his kitchen because there are so many fewer guys driving trucks that materials take forever and cost a lot more. I hope his contractor charges him an attitude premium too. What a moron.

And MSLSD is full of racist retards who voted for Biden (and probably for Obama, too). What's your excuse, Tiffany? Trucking IS a dangerous industry, because it's a dangerous job. Anybody who's not up to the challenge should strap on their Prius and limp home to Mommy.

It is a dangerous industry. I'm reminded of the time I saved the lives of two black people, a man and a woman, who were parked on the side of the highway despite a large sign saying "no parking on the side of the highway." As I drove by in the right lane in my semi, pulling a 55' trailer, they pulled right on to the road, trying to drive right under my rig. I quickly pulled left in to the other lane and saved their lives. They thanked me with angry scowls and hand gestures. A little "aggressive" driving comes in handy sometimes.

I didn't know a lot of truck drivers, but most of those I knew weren't "white". I had black driver friends, my uncle (who's Hispanic) was truck driver.... Not that any of it matters, but who cares what color skin the driver has??? As long as they can do the job is all that matters. And stop talking about "white people". There is no such thing as "white people". No skin is white. Everybody is basically the same and everyone has melanin that adds coloring to the skin, hair, eyes, etc. Just some people have more than others because their bodies create more than some people based on hereditary factors that our families developed over generations of exposure to various climates and geographical environments to protect their bodies from the sun's UV rays!! We need to stop all this race baiting. There is no such thing as race and we are allowing tyrants to divide (and conquer) us over something that really doesn't exist. Race is just a man-made concept created by sociologists and archeologists to study humans based on abstract (and irrelevant and constantly changing) variables like culture, language and family traits. We need to put a stop to these manipulators now.

#1, You are correct. This is just my observation but many big rigs are being driven by men of color. I see them everyday on the roads in abundance. This pathetic talking head has nothing to offer but division. We must all be divided into groups so that these fools can maintain their assumed superiority. They are the ones putting us all in boxes. People who do this feel inferior and that is why they create a system in which they can declare themselves more than those who are not like them. The weakest among us will always gravitate toward a system wherein they can feel superior. Hard working Americans are the lowest in their pecking order. Therefore, they must be denigrated. The irony is that could not exist without the very people they believe are inferior. The left will just not let go of the slave mentality that has been the bedrock of their political party. They cannot survive without a pecking order.

I spoke to a woman at a local Dollar Tree who said a delivery truck showed up, but the driver didn't know how to back the truck and who was rude. A delivery guy showed up at a local furniture store wearing pajamas and who offered no assistance in unloading the truck. I'm providing two examples from this small town of about 7000. Do the math.

So we know how you feel about truck drivers now tell us what you think about the factory workers who make the stuff and the farmers who raise the stuff carried in the trucks? Is it that you have a problem with the very people to create value and perform essential services? History is watching you and banging it's head on the table thinking not again. History understands that you need to demonize us so that you can feel good about stealing from us. Every communist regime needs it's kulaks.

Perhaps Tiffany Cross would like to become an advocate to recruit more women and people of color to become big rig truck drivers. She has the platform to do it. It is hard work but pays well if you're willing to put in the time and deal with stress. My son and his significant other were over-the-road drivers but both are now driving locally/regionally so they can be home each night for family. It doesn't pay as well (but still good). Priorities.

This woman might want to tone down her rhetoric about truck drivers. They work long hours, are away from home for days at a time, don’t get to sleep in nice comfy rooms every night, have to choke down fast food, and don’t earn all that much money. Does she realize that her very comfortable life is made possible by those truckers she denigrates? Her comments show she is an ill-informed, insular, overpaid elitist with zero self-awareness.

A lawyer for one of the three White men accused of the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery came under fire Monday for highlighting the slain man's "dirty toenails" in her closing argument. "Turning Ahmaud Arbery into a victim after the choices that he made does not reflect the reality of what brought Ahmaud Arbery to Satilla Shores in his khaki shorts with no socks to cover his long, dirty toenails," Lauren Hogue told the panel, referring to a description from the autopsy report. The comment prompted Arbery's mother Wanda Cooper-Jones to exclaim "Wow!" and exit the Glynn County courtroom in

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume thinks there’s a significant chance President Joe Biden doesn’t run for reelection, even suggesting he doesn’t finish his current four-year term. On Special Report Monday night, Bret Baier asked Hume about the White House confirming President Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024. “I don’t think it’s at all clear that he intends to run again, but I do think as a political matter, you have to say that,” Hume remarked. The instant he makes that announcement, Hume argued, Biden becomes a lame duck — “and lame duck presidents don’t do well.”

Even though the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage on, nearly three-quarters of Americans (74 percent) now say their lives have returned to “normal,” according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll. It’s a number that underscores both the progress made possible by safe and effective vaccines and the challenges ahead as the holidays approach and yet another winter wave gets underway in the United States. The survey of 1,696 adults, which was conducted from Nov. 17 to 19, found that only 15 percent say that things “never stopped being normal” for them — a reminder of just how profoundly the virus

The trial of the three men accused of slaying Ahmaud Arbery has Black Americans walking on pins and needles once again. Whatever the jury decides, I’m afraid, will fail to address a damming question that the tragic incident symbolizes: How can Black people ever be secure in America? Executed by three strangers while jogging in a white neighborhood, Arbery’s killing reflects the mindset of domination in the culture of white supremacy: the belief that any random white person has the right to accost and detain a Black person with impunity. Authorities are ready to accept their claims of righteous endangerment–even

Viewing America from outside the country adds a semi-neutral perspective on news and events. I’ve been told there’s value in hearing an outside viewpoint about people more intimately tied to the emotional maelstrom of unfolding events. Conversely, I find it helpful to receive information from people in the know, which adds to the volume and depth of my research. When it comes to Kamala Harris’s floundering, I’ve been hearing shocking gossip. I received this gossip directly from a Washington insider, It will be difficult to confirm until it happens, if it happens.

In the movie Moneyball, Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane queries his team of scouts when discussing a prospective player, “If he's a good hitter, why doesn't he hit good?” The scouts all have solid explanations, at least in their minds (snip) What if we ask the same question about COVID vaccines, rephrased as “If the vaccines work, why aren’t they working?” (snip) The CDC on its website claims, “Research provides evidence that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing COVID-19.” Yet cases in highly vaccinated locations are surging, now almost two years into the COVID pandemic. As Billy Beane might say, “If the vaccines work, why aren’t they working?”

The trial of the three men accused of slaying Ahmaud Arbery has Black Americans walking on pins and needles once again. Whatever the jury decides, I’m afraid, will fail to address a damming question that the tragic incident symbolizes: How can Black people ever be secure in America? Executed by three strangers while jogging in a white neighborhood, Arbery’s killing reflects the mindset of domination in the culture of white supremacy: the belief that any random white person has the right to accost and detain a Black person with impunity. Authorities are ready to accept their claims of righteous endangerment–even

While Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot says that she respect’s the jury’s acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse in his Wisconsin murder trial, she had some strong words for Judge Bruce Schroeder’s handling of the case, saying that the judge “put his thumb on the scale” with some of his actions during the trial. (Snip) “Why on Earth did that child have an AR-15, leave his home in Antioch, and think that he had the right to go up to another state to supposedly protect a city?” she said.(Snip)“He had no business being there. None,” she added.

President Joe Biden promoted his efforts to lower gas prices on Tuesday, but he reminded Americans they would save more money on gas if they owned electric cars. “For the hundreds of thousands of folks who bought one of those electric cars, they’re going to save $800 to $1000 in fuel costs this year,” Biden said, referring to the $112,595 electric Hummer pickup he test drove at a General Motors factory in Detroit earlier this month. The president appeared frustrated that some Americans continue blaming his environmental agenda for higher gas prices, dismissing it as a “myth.” “My effort to combat climate change

San Francisco Bay was hit by a third day of shocking looting, with a gang of thieves smashing glass cases at a jewelry store and emptying them as staff screamed in terror. The latest incident happened at a Sam's Jewelers store at the Southland Mall in Hayward around 5:30pm PST Sunday evening, and was caught on camera. Robbers—said to have been part of a gang of around 40 to 50 teens who entered the mall—wielded hammers to smash display cases at Sam's, before making off with goods. Dramatic footage shot from a nearby store showed shop workers screaming with fear as the disturbing scene unfolded.

A hypersonic weapon test carried out by China in July featured a missile fired at five times the speed of sound - a technological feat which no other country has demonstrated, according to US intelligence. The hypersonic glide vehicle - a spacecraft with the ability to carry a nuclear warhead - fired a missile mid-flight over the South China Sea, catching Pentagon scientists unawares.Experts at Darpa - the Pentagon's advanced research agency - are apparently still baffled at how China was able to defy the constraints of physics to fire a weapon from the vehicle travelling at hypersonic speed, the Financial Times reports.

Two members of the Democratic Party ‘squad’ are touting their views in favor of abolishing federal prisons and quashing ‘excessive bail’ just a day after a convicted felon who was out on bail mowed down scores of people with his SUV in suburban Milwaukee, killing five. House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez provoked rage on social media on Monday for demanding answers on ‘excessive bail’ that is imposed by prosecutors in New York City on Monday. Meanwhile, fellow ‘squad’ member House Rep. Rashida Tlaib, the Democrat from Michigan, had trouble explaining her support for a law
