MSNBC Guest: ‘Voter Suppression’ a ‘More Sophisticated Form of Lynching’ (NewsBusters)

During a panel discussion on racism in America on MSNBC’s Last Word w/ Lawrence O’Donnell Monday night, Mark Thompson, host on SIRIUS XM, argued that “voter suppression” is a new and “more sophisticated form of lynching” taking place in America today.

After host Lawrence O’Donnell and Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson evaluated President Obama’s use of the n-word to explain the history of racism in America, Thompson insisted that “we're seeing history repeat itself” following Reconstruction.
