Racist Senate Democrats join with Republicans to block Obama nominee

Democrats and Republicans team up to practice racism in the Senate. Debo Adegbile was part of a team of lawyers at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund who successfully argued the trial judge’s jury instructions violated Abu-Jamal’s rights. Adegbile’s supporters say the attacks on him mark a new form of Willie Horton politics and race baiting. We discuss the controversy with two guests: Johanna Fernandez, professor of history at Baruch College-CUNY and a coordinator with the Campaign to Bring Mumia Home; and Ryan Haygood, director of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund’s Political Participation Group.
