November 2, 2016

Nicholas Guyatt, a University Lecturer in American History at Cambridge University and author of Bind Us Apart: How Enlightened Americans Invented Racial Segregation,discusses the complexity of early American racial discrimination. How Illinois became an anti-Slave State. What is “Black Colonialism”? The distinction between American and British Anti-Slavery struggles. The movements to remove Native Americans and African Americans from America. Lincoln and Jefferson’s race politics and class and race. Native American societies and Andrew Jackson’s politics. Why White people fail the test of living in desegregated spaces and why today’s racial politics is not as different today as it was in early American history.

On The Fun Half: Donald Tump hung out with a Mobster he pretended to never have met. He also hit on the gangster’s daughter and the mafioso threatened to castrate Trump. Peter Beinart laughs in Corey Lewandowski’s face. The new Wikileaks “blockbuster”. Bobby Knight says there will be no “Bull Shit” in a Trump Administration. Chris Cuomo gets sexism. Sean Hannity gets all excited over a fake story and has to tweet an apology. Libertarian Vice Presidential candidate defends Hillary Clinton.
