MSNBC host Joy Reid blamed sexist and racist attitudes from voters and the media for the collapse of the presidential campaign for Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).
"The reality is that no 2020 candidate is perfect, but the extent to which people -- including the media but also would-be voters -- punished and refused to even consider Kamala Harris for flaws she frankly shared with other candidates, was telling and depressing," Reid tweeted.
Reid grouped Harris in with Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Julian Castro, the other minority presidential candidates who polled poorly.
"And that refusal to even consider Senator Harris, or for that matter Julian Castro or Cory Booker, including out of an understandable distrust in the electorate, frankly, reflects in the polls that influence donors and that helps exclude candidates from the debate stage," she said in a second tweet.
"Now we face the next debate for America's diverse party, which thoroughly depends on voters of color for electoral survival, likely having no candidates of color on stage," she continued.
