Cross Connection anchor Tiffany Cross revealed Sunday that she’s worried about her brother in the trucking industry.


The MSNBC host was slammed on Twitter on Sunday after he expressed concern about his brother in the trucking industry, which includes many white men over the age of 55, and is “dangerous.”

Cross Connection host Tiffany Cross has revealed that her brother is a truck driver and whenever he is on the road she worries about his safety because it feels like a dangerous business.

He pointed to the Bureau of Labor Statistics showing that about 77 percent of truck drivers are white, while 16.8 percent identify as black or African American.

Only 12.4 percent of employees were women.

Cross of Black said in his section on Sunday that he had spoken to some minority truck drivers who said he had experienced racism at work and that many truck drivers were aggressive – insisting that if there were more people, it would not happen. Color ‘was in the industry.

But later, some on Twitter called the cross-racist for stereotyping white truck drivers and criticizing the industry.

“My brother is a truck driver and he drives all over the country, and when he is on the rod it really strikes me as nervous because it feels like a risky venture,” Cross began his division on Sunday.

“But you’re trying to disrupt it and bring more people into the industry that look like us,” he told Pamela Day, owner and president of the Cross Country Truck Driving School. ‘Tell me why.’

Day later mapped out his efforts to promote diversity in the sector and to get more people interested in trucking jobs.

“We say we are not building truck drivers but building secure CMV operators,” Day commented. ‘People can go back to their home whenever they finish. That’s the most important part. ‘

But Cross dug deeper and asked Day how the industry could be ‘more welcoming’ and said that some minority truck drivers he talked to had heard of racism in walkie-talkies.

“It’s an industry populated by a lot of white men over the age of 55,” Cross said. “This group of people voted overwhelmingly for Trump.

‘Some have talked about aggressive truck drivers cutting them or not being helpful.

“So obviously, it’s more populated with people of color. I think you’ll see less of it,” he alleged. ‘But how can you encourage people to come and interrupt when this space is a bit reluctant?’

The best way to encourage people into the trucking industry who responded later in the day was to showcase other black people and women who drove like them for eight years.

‘And yes, [I] There was a lot of racism, ‘Day admitted,’ but, nevertheless, [I] I was out to do my job.

‘I commend you for helping us put this word out,’ he told Day Cross. ‘Women will be able to close the deficit if we tell them.’

After posting a conversation clip to Twitter, some users criticized Cross for following the trucking industry and demonstrating racism itself.

A Twitter user named ‘JT’ commented that Cross was criticizing truckers for aggressive driving, saying, “Try to drive one of those trucks for 300 miles and see how hard it is to handle them,” and another user, many with older trucks. Due to the new emissions standards, they are no longer able to drive in California.

Others criticized the Cross for stereotyping a whole bunch of people while criticizing racism. @ItstheDonz wrote: ‘Ah yes, there is nothing racist about suggesting that people of the whole race drive a certain way, and that the behavior of another person’s truck drivers does not take into account any race, color or religion.’

And @JayByrdSG tweeted: ‘God didn’t create race or racism. Someone like Tiffany Cross did. ‘

Cross, host of CrossConnection on MSNBC, has previously been criticized for claiming that some black media hosts are 'not necessarily black voices'.

Cross has previously been criticized after some black media hosts claimed they were “not necessarily black voices.”

‘Well Carlos Watson, Sage Steele, Van Jones – what’s the likeness of these three?’ She heard last month’s episode.

‘They are all people who are supported by rich or powerful white Americans, and yet we, the Keeps of the Culture don’t really rock with any of them.

‘Now, obviously these three people are definitely black faces. However, they are not necessarily black voices. And there is a difference.

‘I’m sure anyone is getting variety on their backs by having a modern-day minstrel show,’ he continued, talking about the Van Jones show on LOVEBYLIFE.

‘A word of advice for the landscape of the rich and powerful: Instead of investing in people of color who are comfortable with you, you may want to give them a second look at those of us who feel uncomfortable.

‘After all, we’ve been uncomfortable for a long time.’
