At the top of our agenda this week: Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia calls your right to vote a “racial entitlement.” It’s the one-year anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin. Was his death in vain? Washington fails to prevent another self-inflicted wound to the fragile economic recovery. Seriously? Yes, seriously.
In the “Washington Watch” roundtable: Karen Finney, MSNBC political analyst; Elroy Sailor, co-director of the J.C. Watts Companies; Republican Texas State Representative Stefani Carter; and principal of IMPACT Strategies, Angela Rye.
We’re talking about voting rights with the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, Congresswoman Marcia Fudge; and the president of NAACP, Benjamin Jealous. Civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks became the first African-American woman to be honored with a life-sized statue in the Capitol. Plus, Michelle Obama shows she’s the coolest First Lady ever.
All that and the return of “The Biggest Damn Lie,” happening right now on “Washington Watch.”
