Lt. Gov Mark Robinson on CRT, ‘woke’ ideology, and being a black Republican

Governor Mark Robinson joins the podcast this week to discuss critical race theory, combating ‘woke’ ideology in schools, and the Left’s belief that black Americans who are Republicans are “white supremacists.”Mark Robinson is a native of Greensboro, NC, and a proud Army veteran who is serving as the 35th lieutenant governor of North Carolina.
