Anchor Alisyn Camerota of CNN Tonight invited a panel of guests on Monday’s show to discuss Senator Tim Scott’s (R-SC) appearance on The View in that morning, and his discussion on racism in America today. One of Camerota’s guests was Jessica Washington, a reporter for The Root, who scoffed at Scott’s positive view of race relations in America and decried focusing on the progress made.

Washington made it clear that she didn’t believe Scott’s view of race in America, calling it “fundamentally confusing” because his concept of America didn’t “completely match up” with the one that she had, or at least the one that she thought he should have.
