    Haley says America has never been ‘racist.’ Her own family history says otherwise – By Sara Pequeño (USA Today) / Jan 17, 2024

    The GOP is not equipped to have meaningful discussions on race when older white voters are its primary voting bloc, especially while the party is still under Donald Trump’s thumb.

    Nikki Haley can’t seem to tackle questions on race. The former South Carolina governor and current presidential candidate paid a visit to “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, after a third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses. In an interview, host Brian Kilmeade pulled up a video of Joy Reid’s CNN commentary from the night before that focused on race.

    “Elephant in the room? She’s still a brown lady that’s got to try to win in a party that is deeply anti-immigrant,” Reid said.

    Kilmeade asked Haley whether she agrees with this interpretation, to which she replied with her track record – being the first woman of color elected to governorship in the country (technically, she’s the second by a matter of days) and becoming a U.S. ambassador to the United Nations after growing up in rural South Carolina.
