Episode 192: Color Lines

The Friday edition of The Rotunda Podcast features Rep. Travaris McCurdy and Rep. Angie Nixon, two Black Democrats who are calling out racism after claiming Republican Rep. Cord Byrd, who is white, shouted expletives at them.

The verbal altercation was triggered by protesters erupting in chants as Republicans approved a 15-week abortion ban. Gomes also tracks the questionable changes to the “Don’t Say Gay” bill as it advances, and the Senate passes its $109 billion spending plan without punishing school districts over mask mandates.
