“I don’t expect anything less of Nancy Pelosi,” said Frederick Joseph, a New York Times bestselling author. “Racism is and has always been a spectrum.”
Another individual, who goes by the Twitter handle of Dr. CBS, said that Pelosi’s statement “is literally a celebration of Black death in the service of liberal fantasy.”
