Giselle Quintero, Charlie, Dad Glenn discussed on Ben Shapiro


How are you, pal? How you doing? The last time we saw each other, the Cubs have won the World Series and we made eye contact across the crowded stadium. Yes. At Wrigley Field at the World Series, man. You know, I went to the theater near my house and well met. It's the Willman Theater, a couple blocks of my house. And I saw finding Vivian Maier on Lee to find out you produced it. That was a great documentary, by the way. Thanks, man. Yeah, that was that was really an amazing thing. I I was watching Ah, PBS at my house, and there was a story about her, and I contacted the guy and I said, Let's do a movie and then I quit. I know. It was nominated for an Academy Award. And but I'm not making a documentary again. She was well. She was a baby sitter in the North Shore, and they found out she died. Nobody knew that she had taken all these spectacular pictures or a life and they were found in a storage bin. And it's a fascinating story, and it won. One point she was she was ah Donahues. Nanny Phil Donahue's nanny. I mean, bizarre story. Here. So anyway. I I'm like, Why isn't Jeff Garland in every day? And they said, Well, he's back in Chicago. He wants to eat all of his favorite food and watch baseball. And I said, I go. Let me just say something to you. Yes. You matter to me. Your show matters to me. You're the greatest guy ever and I will come in any time to your to your festival. And you know, it's so funny is I mean, to be honest is like their say, Put Io just say put together whatever I'll go on whatever. And then I'm not on your show here. Well, here you are. At five, John how and its seven Michael of in the right side of Conversation, 8 90 W. L s Welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. So for a lot of woke people that the goal here is not actually solving racism in any re away. The goal here is about making themselves feel good at the expense of everybody else. The goal here is about I'm better than you. And truly were privileged to live in such a generation when the only good people have ever lived. As I said yesterday on the show, it is incredible. We live in a generation, which the only good people live us. Just not a good person, not a man of his time. Bad person got to tear down the statue of Washington Jefferson bad people. You would have been better than they had you lived in. Because you are a good person, and we know you're a good person is because you go to protests and because post stuff on Facebook and also because you doctor people on Twitter, you are an incredible person. Incredibly, you're bettering appearance. You are. There's an entire Washington post piece about how young people generations he and millennials they're better than their baby boomer and millennial Parents Day. There's better, inherently better. For example, it was a great person. This guy named Charlie. My, He's great. He's great because you went to a black lives matter Protest now their father, his father was not happy about it. Glenn Mai's retired FBI agent had been raised in Dallas by Chinese immigrants who had taught him he would succeed if he just worked hard. Chinese culture is very much about working within the system, said Glenn, 54. He served for decades in law enforcement, and he came to believe this is to work. His son, Charlie took a different view. Charlie's the hero of the story. My father deeply believes that everyone has a fair chance, which is just basically untrue, said Charlie, an artist who fled New York for his family's home in Northern Virginia because of the pandemic. Very Asian. To me that view that if everyone just works hard, everything will turn out right for them. I'm definitely a little reacted to that is I think that's delusional, says the guy who is an artist in New York and was able to go to his family home in Northern Virginia that his dad worked for now. Who do you think experience more racism in American society? Charlie, 20 for an artist. Or Dad Glenn, who grew up in Dallas, a Chinese person in law enforcement. Who do you think experience more racism? I have a feeling. I know the answer to this one. Hey, or let's take another example from the article. Ah Groman Giselle Quintero. She's 18. A team who's half African American had come to live with her family in their Marysville, California home, and Quintero has come to regard her has come to regard her 15 year old cousin, Maura's brother, She was their cousin in their family as protesting Gulf the nation while her conservative farming community ran quiet. The 18 year old college didn't decided she had to act. It upset me to see how unjustly black people are being treated have a platform in this little community, so I knew I had to do something to help out. Send Quintero In early June, she posted news on social media of a protest in front of them on there. Her house. Parents, Mexican American business owners and strong Trump supporters vocally opposed your plans. At first. My parents were like this is stupid. All eyes matter, Quintero said. They didn't understand the big picture of it. Now The system is so messed up. They nobody deserves having me on the neck for eight minutes over a $20 counterfeit bill. Quintero said she grew up hearing her grand parents tell stories about how they were prohibited from drinking at whites only fountains after long, hot days of working in the fields, they just kind of suppressed those memories and tried to distinguish themselves by their hardworking achievement, said Quintero. They're still not being accepted by the white community. So.
