If there’s one thing CNN journalists love, it’s implying that Republicans are racist. On Monday’s Don Lemon Tonight, the host trashed GOP senator Bill Cassidy as uncaring on the issue of maternal mortality rates for African American women. Cassidy had spoken on the topic of maternal mortality rates in Louisiana, recognizing that Black women were of higher frequency; statics show four Black women to every one White woman. Stating he knew the rates were different but did not know the cause, he continued that if Louisiana could “correct their population,” the state would not be considered that far out from other state’s statics.
