Update from DNC; History of the Founding of a Racist America

Bernie Sanders closed the first night of the Democratic National Convention by warning about a Trump presidency and throwing his full-throated support behind Hillary Clinton. We talk to Carroll Fife about what’s happening inside the convention, then go to Joshua Holland for a reality check on the language, and the hype, surrounding the rift in the Democratic party. Plus: Nicholas Guyatt with a history lesson from the founding of the American Republic — and how people with the best of intentions set up one of the world’s worst racial caste systems.

Guests:

Carroll Fife, member of the Bernie Sanders delegate network

Joshua Holland, contributor to The Nation and Rolling Stone, and the host of Politics and Reality Radio

Nicholas Guyatt, author of Bind Us Apart: How Enlightened Americans Invented Racial Segregation
