<p>MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>AM Joy</em> host Joy Reid bemoaned in Tuesday&rsquo;s early hours at the Republican National Convention (RNC) that Melania Trump&rsquo;s plagiarized speech was unfortunately<strong> &ldquo;the first of the night that didn&rsquo;t have this subtext...that brown people are dangerous&rdquo; </strong>to the point that Reid felt uncomfortable being around the RNC that she found to be so <strong>&ldquo;not inclusive.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Reid was joined by three other MSNBC/NBC News correspondents when she diverted the focus away from the topic at hand of plagiarism to fretting how <strong>&ldquo;Melania Trump&rsquo;s speech was the first of the night that didn&rsquo;t have this substex &mdash; subtext that Avik Roy put on his social media which was that brown people are dangerous which was the kinda substex &mdash; subtext of the rest of the night.&rdquo;</strong></p>
