Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And oppression that that individual represent so in the case of somebody like an Amy Cooper There is this sense for many black people. In particular. That there is no safe space for them that they're constantly being policed by individuals, not only the police themselves, but actual other fellow citizens within society, and that creates. A CERTAIN OF RACIAL TRAUMA AND An, inability to actually have a good sense of health and well being in the world, and so I think we saw especially kind of after the Mukuka situation. You know you have things like you know. Hashtag, blackboard. And have hikers week. That was mobilized in solidarity, and in support of the fact that this is speaking to a larger issue that many people base of not feeling safe being in nature, not feeling safe, even being in a park because of the policing occurs for black and Brown people, simply through the eyes of others, simply through the fear of having the police called on you, and in this case Amy Cooper lost her job. She's facing misdemeanor charges. And even Christian Cooper said that he thought that she'd been punished enough Thomas. What are your thoughts on the Amy Cooper Situation? Just the idea that sometimes people are are symbols of a larger structural issues in this canceled culture. Yeah I think that when you have a large enough quantitative shift, then it becomes a qualitative change, and this is an example of how we're really in a new era, and this is novel behavior. Amy, Cooper was obviously wrong in something that happened between her and another man in the park in between the police and hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people descended on her. So out of proportion that the person upon whom she had. Acted unfairly thought that she had been extraordinarily unfairly treated, but I'm a lot less interested in someone like Amy Cooper then I am in someone like David Shore and I. think that our conversation has has continued to talk around. What's actually going on David? Shore was a young data analyst at Civis analytics. And he shared research without adding commentary to it. From a black! Economic at Princeton University named Omar Oiseaux. I hate even mentioned that. Himself Black, but this is the type of conversation that we're forced to get into an parts people's. moral standing by their identity. He shared research on the efficacy of violent and non violent protests in election years, and what it bodes for Democrats. And he was, he was actually fired from his job and there he was kicked out of an Internet. list-serve that he was on with other data analysts. Because, he shared research that was said to be insensitive to the moment, even though it was just. Factual data and you would think that data analysts would be supposed to would be encouraged to actually look at what the numbers say as opposed to what the narrative say. It's extremely terrifying that this type of thing can happen, and he does not have a job and we're sitting here. Talking about whether cancel, culture exists or not. Gave Quick. Here before we take a pause Aaron tweets us and says in reality. The outcry over canceled culture is a reaction to marginalized voices, finally having some influence but twenty seconds. I think what happened. David shore is horrible I think we address that in our letter. I wished the Harper's letter had more than generalities and I wish they brought up that example specifically because I think makes that should be discussed. Yeah, but I think that's an anomalous example. I don't think it's part of a trend and if Thomas wants to say that, we should be looking at data to say that there's a trend of cancel culture. I would like to see that data because I haven't seen any. We're discussing. Cancel Culture with Thomas Chapter, Ten Williams,.
