Lindy Li, supporter of Joe Biden, and a candidate to be a 2020 DNC delegate, talks with Matt about being abused by Bernie Bros, why Trump and Biden are encouraging discrimination against Asian-Americans, and why Biden should probably pick Kamala Harris as his running mate.

He’s not wrong.” On today’s podcast, Scott, who writes about identity politics for The Fix at The Washington Post, talks with Matt about the uproar–and the legacy of Jim Crow.
