Msnbc Host Targets Trucking For Being Populated By White Males Over 55 Who Are ‘Aggressive’ On The Road


MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross shamed the trucking industry Sunday for being predominantly made up of White, male truckers who voted for former President Trump, pressing her guest on how to disrupt the stigma.

The “Cross Connection” host explained that her own brother is a truck driver and she worried for his safety because it “feels like a dangerous industry.”

Cross’ guest, CrossCountry Truck Driving School owner and president Pamela Day, mapped out her efforts to promote diversity in the sector.

“We say we’re not building truck drivers but safe CMV operators,” she said. “Folks that can get back to their home whenever they’re done with their shift. That’s the most important part.”

But Cross dug deeper, questioning Day on how the industry can become “more welcoming” after interviewing drivers of color who reported acts of racism and aggression.
