Ronald Reagan’s Racist Conversation With Richard Nixon – The Atlantic

In newly unearthed audio, the then–California governor disparaged African delegates to the United Nations.

The day after the United Nations voted to recognize the People’s Republic of China, then–California Governor Ronald Reagan phoned President Richard Nixon at the White House and vented his frustration at the delegates who had sided against the United States. “Last night, I tell you, to watch that thing on television as I did,” Reagan said. “Yeah,” Nixon interjected. Reagan forged ahead with his complaint: “To see those, those monkeys from those African countries—damn them, they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!” Nixon gave a huge laugh.

How to watch tonight’s Democratic presidential debate on CNN – CNNPolitics

CNN is hosting the second set of Democratic presidential debates Tuesday and Wednesday, taking place in Detroit.

The second night will offer a rematch of former Vice President Joe Bidenand California Sen. Kamala Harris, whose clash over race became the most closely watched moment of the first round of debates. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who has also been critical of the former vice president, will also be on the stage on Wednesday.
For a large part of the Democratic field outside of the top-tier candidates, the pair of debates will be one of the last chances to make an impression on a national audience. The Democratic National Committee raised the threshold to qualify for the fall debates, meaning many of the candidates run the risk of not making the stage in September and October.
Here’s how to watch:

What time is the debate?

Tonight’s debate will start at 8 p.m. ET and end around 10:30 p.m. ET.
