Wonkette Bonus Chat: Why We Shouldn't Surrender Florida To Ron DeSantis
Tom Nichols at The Atlantic argued that "Florida has a right to destroy its universities." However, this line of thinking greatly misrepresents who's given power to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. It also ignores who suffers the most from his authoritarian rule.

Dame Magazine columnist Kaitlin Byrd (@gothamgirlblue on social media) joins me today to challenge Nichols's argument with some appropriate historical context (i.e. America tried Jim Crow once. It was bad).
Our pre-recorded Black History Month chat begins at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET.
