Racism and Politics

From the Maryland State House to The White House, how does racism impact politics?

There are more calls for a democratic Maryland State Delegate to step down after she  used a racial slur to step down.   The Maryland Democratic Party, The Black Legislative Caucus… even Governor Larry Hogan are all calling on Harford County Delegate Mary Ann Lisanti to resign.  Last month at a cigar bar in Annapolis the democrat was heard using the N-word to describe residents of Prince George’s County. We discuss the incident, the fallout and racism in politics.
