I appreciate your article, but I believe ultimately, what she said was racist. She and Whoopi sometimes let some pretty wild stuff slip. In the end, Joy belongs to that particular subclass of Liberal elites that always seem to choose the most inciting comment they can make, to not only simultaneously silence a black woman but somehow to make it seem like they care about racial injustice. The truth is that one out of every three black homes owns a gun, not quite the 40% of white houses, but close, so it's not that. She just really needed that woman to stop talking.
