(NEWSBUSTERS) – MSNBC’s Yasmin Vossoughian welcomed colleague Trymaine Lee to discuss his new series Into America: The Power of the Black Vote. For the premiere episode, Lee traveled to Texas South University to team up with students and activists to accuse the GOP of racism for passing laws prohibiting Critical Race Theory in schools.
The activism of both Vossoughian’s show and Lee’s podcast was clear when the former asked, “I know you moderated a town hall that focused on these kind of anti-CRT laws and what black voters can actually do about it. How they fight back, right? What stood out to you? What did you learn?”
Lee responded by introducing a series of video clips and declaring that “Texas has become ground zero over the story we tell about America, the mythology, and everything in-between. It was a great opportunity to hear from them. Let’s take a listen.”
