Is the Narrative Around ESG and Bitcoin Mining Shifting?
"All right guys, this is a topic that I am excited about because as you well know, the environmental impact of Bitcoin mining has long been one of the bully cudgels used by people who don't like Bitcoin to justify why it shouldn't be allowed to exist. Look at the environmental costs they say, how could this thing possibly be worth that? Now, of course, there are a million counterarguments to this. There is the free market argument that says this set of actors are willing to pay to use the energy. Who are we to stop them? There is this slippery slope argument of where does it end when we start making value judgments that one use of energy is better than another. What other types of activities might be imperiled? There are the folks who would point to the social and governance upsides of Bitcoin as countervailing other environmental costs. And then there are those who argue that Bitcoin mining actually has some pretty interesting potential positive impacts on environmental goals for those who are willing to go beyond the cheap headlines and easy assumptions. Still, those sorts of arguments are all too few and far between in mainstream media. In fact, at the moment, driven largely of course by the market cycle, a much more popular media trope is the type of critique exemplified by Charlie Munger sensationalist ill backed up peace in The Wall Street Journal this week, why America should ban crypto? The 99 year old Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman wrote in the WSJ. It isn't currency. It's a gambling contract with a nearly 100% edge for the house. that sometimes cryptos are first sold to a promoter at an negligible cost before being purchased by an unassuming public, allowing the promoter to capture a massive payday. It makes sense that munger would be describing a phenomenon best associated with ICOs from four years ago, but here we are. Almost half of the article is dedicated to praising the Chinese Communist Party for their 2021 ban on crypto, as well as citing the 100 year ban on issuing common stock in England following the collapse of the south sea bubble. Despite its lack of detail, analysis or honest engagement with the issue, this article will probably be given serious consideration and attention from many corners of the financial world.

Is Political Gridlock Good for Crypto?
"One of the big bits of news in the political world this week has been the absolute dogfight for the Republican speaker vote in the House. If you're not in the United States, the TLDR is that Republicans took back the house, AKA Congress and last fall's midterm elections. As one of their first orders of duty, they need to elect a speaker to lead them, and this is not gone so well. We are now four days and 12 ballots into the process. Throughout that, Republican Kevin McCarthy has failed to gain the majority required to be seated as House speaker, holding up the swearing in of hundreds of new members and delaying any legislative work. Despite holding a majority in the House, Republicans have been stymied by a group of hard right members of the ultra conservative freedom caucus who defected from their party to endorse several alternative candidates. Now, obviously the ins and outs and rights and wrongs of this are way, way beyond the scope of this show. But the key thing for us to know is that only 15 times since the inaugural Congress in 1789 did House speaker require more than one round of voting to be elected. The last time this occurred was exactly 100 years ago in 1923, when 9 rounds of voting were required to elect a speaker. Again, without a speaker, nothing in the House can move forward, including committee appointments. Hearings are the adopting of new rules for how the chamber will operate. Because of that, this does impact crypto. In December, the House financial services committee convened a hearing to investigate the collapse of FTX. That committee is also responsible for economic stability issues and financial system oversight, as well as being the main body which proposes and refines draft bills related to its policy area. Without a House speaker, no appointments to the committee can be ratified and important legislation around financial services, including crypto policy can not progress. Before Congress concluded last year, there were a number of crypto bills which were being considered with great urgency, a law regulating stablecoins had reached an impasse, but the matter was considered to have serious importance and time pressure. More broad regulatory bills like the lummis gillibrand sponsored responsible financial innovation act and the state now boozman sponsored digital commodities consumer protection act had been proposed in the Senate but would also need to pass in the House as well. So what does this all portend for legislation to come? I don't think it's unreasonable to think that if Republicans who hold the balance of power in the House can't even come together on an agreement on appointing a speaker, there is a serious possibility of pretty substantial gridlock in Congress in general. For the crypto industry, there may be an element that no news is good news here. Without a functional legislative body to enact new regulation, the industry could continue to grow without additional government oversight and restriction.

The Right and Wrong Way to Teach Children
"Think truly the issue with American education and there's plenty, but the one that is most important for us to focus on is the people that have run our education system over the last 100 years started with Jude John Dewey Woodrow Wilson played a big role is they fundamentally do not understand what education is. We have a completely different opinion of what education is and what it should be. And so if you walk into any government school here in Phoenix or across the country, they believe that education is allowing students to choose what direction they want to go, presenting them with a bunch of options to liberate them from a very broken world and really having young people find themselves. That's a really bad idea. In fact, it's an evil one. It's immoral to say to a fourth grader, you got to start to figure out stuff for your figure out your own path. Instead, education comes from a Latin word, which means to lead forth. And the next question is, well, what are you leading them for towards? The truth. You're leading them forth towards a fulfilling life towards beauty towards truth towards goodness towards virtue. And so therefore you must know at the end in goal, the end goal is before you even begin the education process. Far too often teachers will get their fourth or 5th graders kind of sitting around a room and they'll ask them their opinions on the news cycle. A controversial thing that shouldn't be controversial to say is it's completely irrelevant with a 5th grader opinion is on the news cycle. That's not what education is. It's not about the votes of a 5th or a 6th grade. You can get their perspectives and guess what? You need to correct them when they're wrong.

McCarthy's bid for speaker to continue, says Trump backs him
"Republicans ended the new Congress's first day in disarray, failing to elect party leader Kevin McCarthy as the new House speaker. It was the first time in 100 years that a House speaker nominee failed to win the gavel with his party in charge. Is it the day I wanted to have? No. McCarthy vowed to keep fighting even as the GOP's most conservative members like chip Roy pledged to end business as usual. This is about the future of the country. The house is immediate future, though, is in doubt. It can't fully form without a speaker. Number two House Republican Steve scalise is urging Roy and others to drop their protest. We all came here to get things done. Democratic leader rakeem Jeffries says some less some reasonable Republicans step in. They have no way out. Even Jeffrey's got more votes for a speaker than McCarthy in the first two rounds. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

"Amazon. Well, lord forgive me for a flight of rhetorical fancy, I mean it's a noble idea. The idea that you can make quality programs which have huge audiences and that you can make programs which have hue origins, huge audiences, but which are also of high quality, is something the BBC needs to aspire to every day, and of course you can't hit the target every day, but it's an absolutely marvelous organizing part of the UK. I sincerely impertinently hope that a it survives, and that the political will to make it survive informed by the thing that matters above all, which is the audience's view of it and the audience's affection for it. Emily bell survival into the next hundred years. Well, I really hope so because I have to echo gene here and say that particularly if you've seen America at the moment, and you look at what the free market genuinely free market has brought in terms of information and use of information, it's really quite a depressing and challenging place. Where you have a very well informed elite. And then you have a whole mess of fake news, propaganda, advertising, and you can't really differentiate between it. And we do need institutions to stand up to that and the BBC is one of the very few institutions around the world. What's interesting to me is how often now the BBC cited as a model in America, which is struggling to sort of think about how it retrofits and democratic values into this ecosystem of information, technologies. So I think it's got this democratic purpose now, which actually looks very similar to the democratic purposes that have mine in 1922. When you'd also have this huge upheaval of technologies and you'd also had great sort of challenged political scene you have fracturing in Central Europe, you have the rise of fascism, there are many of those elements that are present now. And the mission of the BBC has to be adapted, really aggressively adapted, I think, for the digital age. And Paul karenza, you've delved into the BBC's past hundred years for your podcast. What do you think about survival for the next a hundred? I think it's certainly will. I think the thing is we don't know what media will look like as a whole in the next hundred years, let alone what the BBC will look like. But I think back to, well, Peter eckersley, the first chief engineer whose voice you heard earlier on talking about the tracing the license fee and so on. He actually pitched an idea in the late 1920s even that one day we will sit in our sofas in our homes, we'll look at our walls, we'll have a giant

"I mean, almost palpable for knowledge, curiosity, the wider world, and so on. The director general gives you, in my day, a 100 million pounds all in. And says, here are all these people queuing up to give you the best ideas. Choose some and then go off and pick up the awards on their behalf. I mean, it's the best gig that you could possibly have. Of course, your conscious of the need, even within a radio four origins, to cater to different sections of it, but I mean, it is the most delightful job going. I'm very envious of the person who's got it now. Yes, and he's probably going to be very envious of the person who has it next. It is one of those jobs, isn't it? Paul just fill us in on, you know, inform educate entertain. It's subscribed and it subscribe to John reith, but when did it come in and what was the significance of it? Well, those values actually David Sarnoff was writing them down a few years before, even that, so I think it was David Sandler. So David Sarnoff, an American pioneer and thought that maybe that this could be a sense of we could use this to inform educate and entertain, although it took a lot longer, I think, from America to actually adopt that. That was more of an idea to begin with, that then I think Reese took some ownership of and this sense that when he had joined the BBC, not really knowing what broadcasting even was. And I even saw in his diaries that it's in January 1923 that he finally listens to the radio for the first time. He's been in post at the BBC for a month and not actually tuned in yet. So I think it took him a few weeks just a few weeks at least maybe to realize, okay, this is what we can do with this. This is the power of this. We now have a responsibility to do something amazing with this. And as Mark says, the people queuing up to be on radio for today. I love this idea. Even back then, they had a sign outside the BBC, the one room BBC, when it magnet house, they had a sign saying BBC come in. And anyone could come in and pitch their ideas and people did. And from that you get, for example, the chief engineer of the royal opera house saying, we've got opera season starting Monday. Can we broadcast that? And they laid a quarter of a mile of cable from studio to opera house stage and that was Britain's first outside broadcast from an idea from someone passing by. So that was a marvelous thing. And now it's outside broadcast to plenty Emily. Do you think the BBC is fulfilling its remit at the moment? Do you think the output is in a good place?

"And cultural assets if you can use that rather academic phrase. Because that's not going to be provided, I think, by the free market. We don't like to think of the BBC just as providing a patch for market failure. But this idea that Britain is somehow Britain is the creative economy and the BBC assassin at the heart of that creative economy for quite a long time. And I do think that it's really important as Mark says that people recognize and maintain that because it's not just a cultural driving in a way. And economic driver for the rest of the creative businesses in Britain. Okay, well let's go back a hundred years again. Day one of the BBC was general election day, which was an exciting day to launch. On day two, came the first broadcast from 5 IT in Birmingham and two ZY in Manchester. Around that time, as it started, maybe 20 to 30,000 licenses were out there, they were listening parties of 50 or more, but Paul. What were they broadcasting? We've heard about news, bit of weather, but what were they broadcasting? And why did those ones in Manchester and Birmingham not start the same day as the London one? The Birmingham station was a little slow to stop because they were simply moving all of the equipment from London and it got lost in fog, so they would have started little earlier if maybe the weather was more Clement. And then it's really day three, I think it actually properly kicks off. November the 16th, you start to have musical concerts, the first song of the BBC, a proper, I suppose is Leonard hawke with Drake goes west, and then it's light opera and comedians essentially from 7 until closed down at top past ten or so. And Mark earlier mentioned John reith, he's the name that we associate with the early days of the BBC, but you argue two other men were very important in shaping the BBC Peter eckersley and who we've already heard from and Arthur burrows, who were they. Well, Arthur burrows, then they both worked for Marconi company, but different wings. And I think both had very different ideas of what broadcasting kudos should be, so Arthur burrows had this rather high minded approach and wanted poetry and light opera and readings and things like this. But whatever Arthur burrows was on air in the experimental stages in the summer of 1922, doing these poetry readings and the like, Peter rack has Lee was on a rival station that was just there ahead of the London station in Essex two empty rittle.

"But of course, and it has to do enough or value for all the various people, millions upon millions who pay the license fee to justify it. That's of course true. But one, it gives you that sense of ownership. It doesn't belong to the government. It certainly doesn't belong to the BBC management at any given period. It belongs to all of us, and the second thing it gives you, in this case, through the license fee, at least until this point is economies of scale. The fact that we all pay for it means that we get much more out of it than if it was only there for people who could afford to pay it because you'd end up getting much less value for money. Okay, and Emily, I'm in the license for your survive fairly precariously for a hundred years. Do you think it will survive another hundred? Even another ten. Well, it certainly doesn't feel that way because, again, it is this very contested political football. And we know that the current government has expressed some desire to get rid of the license fees. It's very old fashioned, doesn't really work in the age of we keep hearing about Netflix, et cetera. But the point to make is that all of those ways offload. And you could make a case that says that even though it is a very peculiar anomaly and it is awkward. That it's actually more durable than an advertising system, which we've seen. It can be extremely volatile and also it can create monopolies and geopolitics as it has with Facebook and Google. And you also have problems with direct subscription services because as Mark says, you know, it cuts off universality and the idea of common ownership. And it also means that you get a quality of information, which is arguably the higher level that going to those people who pay versus those people who can't pay. So whilst it's very politically contested at the moment, there are real, I think, merits in this idea of common ownership. Well, news has been at the heart of the BBC for a hundred years, as we heard the first broadcast was a news bulletin, but there was a lot of debate about reading the news on the radio, Paul. What did the newspaper subject to back then? Well, there was this battle ready between the news and the broadcasters about the ownership of the news essentially newspapers felt that this was their domain, really, and even going back two and a half years before the BBC began with the very first test broadcast when they used to read out railway timetables and things like that just to try and test out the technology. And people were listening in, but then people were complaining going, well, actually, these railway time tables all very well, not realizing it's just a test. Can you read something more interesting so they would read the newspaper and even then the press got involved and were saying, well, actually, could you read yesterday's newspaper? Because we don't want you giving away the news for free, essentially. So the legacy of that that I think comes through into when the BBC forms and they have to wrestle this deal

"Emily, when we talk about the government, I mean how important was it that the government made this choice to create a single public broadcaster because obviously if you fast forward many decades to the Internet, you know, clearly the opposite approach looks like it was taken as the Internet started to take off. Yes, was June was saying that you have this design not to be like America. And America very much went down the let the market decide, let any broadcaster attract the largest audience and let's see where it goes. And it's interesting when you contrast it with the commercial Internet, which actually started in many ways as a public good. So when Tim Berners-Lee devised the World Wide Web, which is really the navigation system that we all use around the Internet. He said, you know, this is a public good. It should be for everybody. And he spoke in public. He hasn't about disappointed. He has been since. Exactly. And I think that there was a moment there where you could have theoretically continued with a much more public service type Internet. But actually what's happened is it's becoming closed by some of the largest commercial entities in the world. And nearly all of them are based in America. And so we've seen in a way what happens when you have a communication system which is given over to the free market and there's a very different outcome to the outcome you have to the BBC. Maybe inevitably sign. Mark. So every BBC executive down the years has been tortured by critics, who say that they've done something that would make John reith, the founder of this enterprise, turn in his grave. I was used to think that was something for compliment. I mean, brief was a monster. He was an extremely violently tempered homophobic, racist, terror of a bloke, but he had this one big idea. And although I felt flattered to feel that he might be turning in his grave and I'd done something that shocked him, I also knew for that one big idea, which is that broadcasting ray J would have a public purpose, all the rest of us should be enormously grateful, because without that one founding idea, we would be in a very, very different media ecology to the one that was subsequently established in the UK. One of the most significant inventions in this early period was the license fee, which provoked fiery debate in parliament. Here is a clip of Peter eckersley, one of the BBC's first employees in broadcasters talking about it.

Professor Paul Kengor: The Russians Know Death Unlike Any Other People
"Professor Paul kengo welcome back to America first one on one. Well, thank you said it is always good to be with you, sir. Let's start with an article you sent me yesterday from the American spectator that kind of helps us. There's a concept in national security called strategic culture. I learned of it from one of the best of the best, the late great Colin gray, a British American dual national who served in the Reagan administration in the National Security Council. And the theory goes thusly, Paul, that every nation, every elite has a different strategic culture. Belgium thinks differently about war than Vanuatu. The Soviet Union thought differently about war than Americans did. That strategic culture. Will you explain why the concept of death and human suffering or the cost and value of human life is a little bit different in Russia? Yeah, that's exactly what I wrote about in that piece for American spectator yesterday, right? The Russians know death, unlike any other people. And I mean, it depends on how long or how quickly you want to walk through this. And of course, it's no laughing matter. It's quite tragic, but going back the last 100 years, Seb, a little over a hundred years, I guess, but back to World War I, the Russians from 1914 to 1917 lost more men in World War I than any other country. And that, in fact, they didn't even finish the war. They were actually on the winning side, but they pulled out in 1917 after Tsar Nicholas II abdicated in March 1917. They would have been on our side in that war. They lost over 3 million people in that war. Now, to give you a sense of comparison, you know how many people we lost in World War I, about a 110,000.

As far as I'm concerned, Planned Parenthood is white supremacist.

As for the United States Supreme Court to overturn Roe versus Wade, For states to outlaw abortion. And for Planned Parenthood to be put out of business. None other than Dr Martin Luther King's own niece, Dr Alveda King.

Tony martin barreling toward her. Martin took a nasty fall. Triggering a big pile up. Several writers were injured. One withdrew from the race and the woman holding the sign fled the scene not an ideal start to the race to say. The least tour de france organizers said they were going to find the woman then take legal action so other overzealous spectators understand. Not despoil the show for everyone yesterday. French police said they arrested the suspect. The woman's name has not been released but she's being identified as a thirty year. Old frenchwoman today organizers of the tourists say they are not going to sue raise director christian. Prudhomme said we'd like to calm things down. The message has got across that. The roadside fans need to be careful for the fan holding the sign. It's not over though. She could still face legal action from the writers themselves. It's been nearly six months since the. Us capital was breached just yesterday the house of representatives voted mostly along party lines to create a select committee to investigate the january six attack to republicans joined two hundred twenty democrats to create the panel. The storm of the capital also pushed the biden administration to create a national strategy to combat domestic extremism. The move has been praised but also criticized as the world's rupa shenoy reports many worry that the strategy could lead to targeting muslim americans and people of color after the september. Eleventh attacks the. Us government began to surveillance an infiltrate muslim american communities to find people planning more violence. One they identified was palestinians dummy arjan of florida professor. He was arrested in two thousand and three for having ties to a us designated terrorist group. A jury failed to convict and he was later deported. His daughter lena arjan remembers their family being surveilled for years she recently spoke at an online discussion about surveillance from the moment that we would pick up the receiver actually on her landline. It would start recording. Were a house full of people in five kids. Some of the time the phone would be knocked off the wall and it would just be off the hook for a while and it would be recording everything that was going on in the house. That kind of surveillance happened across the country in two thousand eight muslim americans in southern california told law enforcement about suspicious. New mosque members promoting violence. They turned out to be. fbi informant. Three muslim americans sued attempting to get the fbi to share the information. It had gathered to prove that they were targeted because of their religion. That battle is ongoing just last month the. Us supreme court agreed to weigh in on the case. Amersham bayik is the managing civil rights attorney at the council on american islamic relations in la. The surveillance and the spying wasn't based on any sort of suspicion of criminal activity or anything like that. He was really simply for the fact that these individuals were muslim. Surveillance and infiltration were part of a larger strategy. That at one point was called countering violent extremism or cb. The basic idea is to recruit community leaders social workers teachers and public health providers to help identify people who might commit terrorism cv eased. Many critics said it was a way for the government to target and harass marginalized communities but the strategy evolved says java ali who held senior counter-terrorism positions at the department of homeland security and fbi where the bureau having opened up some kind of investigation on renewed potentially could radicalized in the senate just arresting that person they actually offering to arrest and perhaps getting those persons help that they needed. Some officials regret aspects of cv. John cohen works on threat prevention that vhs. He spoke in june at george washington university. I have to say. I've been saying this publicly and i know it's going to raise some eyebrows that while there were great intentions. Some of the assumptions we base that approach on were flood see the was based on the approach that individuals who are higher risk for coming from specific religious and ethnic communities. That's one of the things we found to be. Not despite that the biden administration's new plan to combat. Domestic extremism includes a version of tv like working with social service organizations and mental health and education professionals to identify potential terrorists. This year the biden administration is giving seventy seven million dollars to state and local governments to combat domestic extremism. And it wants to up that to one hundred thirty one million dollars next year. Cohen says this time they've made a crucial change instead of focusing on people of a particular religion or ethnicity. They'll look for people with certain behavioral characteristics wrongdoing. Now is very different. Religion was more like a public health approach. Where we understand that. There are behavioral characteristics. There are social characteristics are individual characteristics of individuals that make them more vulnerable to being influenced by extremists content. That they're seeing online makes them a higher risk of using violence as a way to express their anger but the government's own studies have found that. It's really tough to narrow down. The characteristics of people who might commit terrorism says harsh upon deroga- he's with the brennan centers liberty and national security program in new york a lot of the conditions that identified whether it's being associated having a grievance being depressed having mental health issues these are conditions that millions of americans experience. He says leaving things. Broad and vague like that gives local law enforcement wide latitude. I think that the degree that the potential flagging of cupolas those who could turn violent is so open ended. that's inevitably it'll be two via seeping into the process. And we noticed typically affected by that so as the biden administration goes forward with its plan to combat domestic extremism muslim. Americans like lena oloron whose family was surveilled for years now find themselves in the unlikely position of defending white extremists who may fall under suspicion. Though we don't like their views they may not necessarily have ever carried out the law that the government concoct it. She argues that in the us. Even people suspected of extremism should be treated fairly for the world. I'm rupa shenoy. Finally today biden administration said it would donate eighty million corona vaccines by the end of june two countries. That need them well. June has come and gone today though. We got this update from jeff signs. He's the white house corona virus response coordinator. These eighty million doses have all been shared with forty six countries. The african union and caricom caricom includes caribbean countries. But there's a catch to the. Us donations half of them have not yet arrived at their destinations. Zein said they're on their way. By the end of this week we will have shipped out about forty million doses including doses to the republic of korea. Mexico canada brazil taiwan endorse columbia pakistan peru ecuador and bangladesh. Zion's also said the us plans to contribute tens of millions more doses. In coming months. Dr krishna. kumar. With duke's global health institute says these american donations are a good start. But we're not moving fast enough to share doses and we have massively underestimated the investment and work required for distribution and delivery of vaccines. There's transportation logistics quality control challenges and international legal issues. That need to be worked out. Who kumar says. He's processes have to be streamlined..

We're marking the one hundred year anniversary of the tulsa race massacre with phoebe are stubblefield of horrific anthropologist at the university of florida and oklahoma state representative regina goodwin democrat. They're both descendants of survivors of the massacre. And we asked you for your thoughts of that day in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. Here's some of what you left in our in box. I went to bishop college in nineteen sixty three and i was a freshman with two women from of work and they talked about the massacre. All my grandmother was a young secretary in tulsa in nineteen twenty one. She was getting on the jitney to go to work and the driver told her. It was not a good day to go into town. My grandfather was in the ku klux klan. And tell us in the nineteen twenties. I i learned of the massacre from a book and the nineteen nineties and at the same time discovered a family photograph. that shows the smoke from greenwood. Burning lay talk told us things that their grandparents aunties or whatever living in in the woods hiding the woods over the over the winter and how they had to hide from the way folks. She never felt good about the parks that were being. Put along the arkansas river. Because she said she had seen truck full of bodies being dumped into the river. My grandfather worked near greenwood. But i never learned if he had taken the photo or even if he had been directly involved. My grandmother had described watching refugees from greenwood. Lean pass their home die and eerie rob. Thanks for sharing that with us representative goodwin. Can you tell us your family's story from that night. Yeah absolutely My great grandfather. James henry good one was the business manager of the tulsa star newspaper. That was the black on newspapers. Also homa son and that day and that would be the newspaper that would burn all the way to the ground. My grandfather was a senior in high school and on that day. He was preparing for the prom like many of us would do and he was decorating the hotel and worded come. I had a great aunt. Also anna and Decorating the hotel and word came into them but trouble is coming and so that is how they i heard of the race massacre. That would be approaching. And how did they. How did they escape so By god's grace grace i tell you that when they heard that trouble was coming and also That day they're also doing a high school. Play booker t. washington so those were that of young folks in day. So they did what they could get to the safety of their own homes and My grandfather Within go return to his home and my great grandfather jane kin rate was very fair. Complected and that day they would call it passing. He always made it very clear that he was a black man. His his skin tone was very very fair and the oral histories that he stood on the house. This port to the house and as the white racist mobs coming through and burning homes and shooting. He weighed them away. Like move on and they just Magin that he was a white man and they bypassed his house. And i'm telling you that that that is really significant for me because my grandfather. When he was in high school he was. And i'm just saying that he was Said he was going to be most likely to succeed right. And and his high school yearbook before the massacre he wrote in his yearbook. He said i know. Not where lifestyle lead me nor win death so come but this. I know the lord me unprepared without a home. He wrote that in a high school yearbook and it just so happens that good one home. That was one of the few that would remain. And i think that is a story that is just expert my memory and i think it speaks volumes one to talking about a home that you have physically and a home that you have spiritually so that is just a brief story telling now two thousand. Three survivors of the massacre sued the city of tulsa for reparation saying the attack with state-sanctioned. I like how was the massacre state-sanctioned representative well number one. You had the in that day you had a national guard that it come in. They'd come in late and when they did come in. Many of them brutalized the very citizens that they were. Suppose we protect it. That that is documented How state-sanctioned is again. We're talking about the national guard. There was supposed to be. The troops are coming in to save Some of them came in and they did irreparable harm. And then you also have the city also that was complicit because you had police officers that were deputising moms the white folks that went on to murder black folks so it's very clear it's very evident There's A captain blaine. That's often named in many of the lawsuits that were filed then and they talk about seeing him Shooting folks and you have eyewitnesses at talk about. Not only the plane ride over tulsa and wasn't wasn't for we're cognizant it was for shooting people and you have witnesses to that so the bombs that were dropped down on top of the city Also again when you have police officers that are complicit. Then you've got the state and the city and the county for that matter that are complicit without question that's documented fact out at two hundred page document that came out in two thousand one.

This is me quoting tiffany the same state sanctioned violence that kills her brother terrence crutcher. I think it's really hard for city leaders to stare at her in the face for county leaders for police officers to steer her in the face and say that justice has been served right. I think that's the hard part. And i think she makes it harder for them. So caleb how do you see this story. Playing out i think. Actually there's more hope than i would anticipate. I think the tendency of writing pieces that don't necessarily inspire that much hope but needing people like tiffany crutcher and others who are so active in the suv actually captured. What seems like the moral imagination. A lot of leaders right in the community. I think there's an opportunity to more than just as history museum. I think there's an opportunity really to hopefully inspire. People not just acknowledged. But then think carefully in creatively innovatively about what repair. Looks like and perhaps reparations. Exactly right i think why they repair i think restitution reparation repair the all. I think occupy the same space in my head for me which is to say that through city policy through legal suits through our educational system food the curriculum that we use. I think it's everything and the kitchen. Sink approach that needs to be taken right to see these reparation because you know to be perfectly honest we know for sure that all of these things exist in political dimensions right and so as such. There's gonna be some negotiations so if you don't bring everything plus the kitchen sink right if you don't negotiate is if you don't start really high even ultimately end with something even lower than you could even tolerated so i think to some extent going for everything plus the kitchen sink is the only way potentially to ensure that the survivors right can live out the rest of their days. Knowing that justice has to at least some extent been served kayla. Thank you so much for the.

"100 years" Discussed on The Diane Rehm Show
"Tulsa massacre. It's one of the worst jackson racial violence in the history of the united states. But even those from oklahoma and tulsa little about the events surrounding the violence that began on may thirty first nineteen twenty one the course of two days his thriving greenwood district was decimated by a white mob. African american property was destroyed. Hundreds lost their lives and thousands were displaced despite the station event. Were from the history books but now there is a growing movement to change that. I spoke with gail on memorial day. He will up intel and broke this past. Sunday's new york times magazine cover story titled one hundred years. After the tulsa massacre one does just look like caleb if you would give us a sentence tulsa black wall street also known as the greenwood district before riot up. Nineteen twenty one. Yeah i think you know. Most people kind of mythology is white black wall street wise where nationality. It wasn't this. You know large a massive breeding ground for black billionaires right which i think it has become somewhat sadly mythology than it was actually a place where people specifically black people Had as much opportunity to succeed as they did to fail. So for instance. The you know dollar earned by black person circulated in the community twelve times before i left it There are people who own their homes. There were people who were yes incredibly wealthy and prosperous but for the most part it was a place that was somewhat Guarded and sheltered thought from kind of the rampant amounts of black hose and jim crow. And have you. The reality was at surrounding this community. Was this ongoing effort to try and limit black success in this very new state at the time oklahoma. If you can give me a sense of the geography Greenwood in relation to rest of a tulsa sure. Yeah i mean so to put even fire point on it. It was called the west. Right by the muskogee comment a small black newspaper at the time. it essentially sat directly to the north east of what we now consider downtown. So it's it abuts. All that is the rest of tulsa right to the south and to its west and now it's more so demarcated by a massive highway that was built through it but it is. It was effectively curve right there next to downtown which a lot of the white landowners developers and city leaders really wanted for the development and growth of a commercial district and a railroad. That would they hoped. Run right through it So it was very residential nature but also quite commercial kind of intermix of the both and it sat directly northeast of downtown. Can you get me. Zand said an american population. Yeah so there are roughly around eleven to fifteen thousand black family back people who lived in that neighborhood and Sally a good chunk of them of course had to vacate died so on and so forth homeless Post the massacre were in. They all pretty much middle. Were there poor. People were there homeless people were. They're very wealthy people. Yeah exactly. i think you're you're pointing to. What exactly was you saw. Black people along all levels of the social strata right. They were people who were living in boarding houses that were barely making ends meet. There were people who were solidly middle class. There who are incredibly wealthy. There were people who were teachers. And doctors and lawyers people were sanitation engineers Porters on down the line so over mix and variety of people at a variety of levels of social economic status occupied Black wall street. So on may thirtieth nineteen twenty one. How did the day began. Sure so dig roland Once the drexel building who's a shoeshine worker a black shoeshine worker and is an elevator with sarah page seventeen role white elevator operator of the drexel building. We don't actually fully know what happened right But it is assumed that there was some sort of tripping accident that was of course misconstrue albeit intentionally and a clerk. Nearby store reported that Decrease in had assaulted this young girl. The issue is is that while he was arrested. The next day v relatively unfair and unbalanced news papers the tulsa tribute in particular issued. Kind of a call. On their on their front asia said nab negro for attacking girl in an elevator. Right Calling for this boys lynching and what was what was scary. Was that though. The day might have begun as a simple tripping exit incident. The days that followed especially to roland was arrested. The next day It essentially became a powder keg that was ignited with essentially the the the conflagration of black men trying to ensure dick role safety. So the jail where the must being held. I gather a white mom came to the jail. With perhaps the idea lynching dick rowland assuming that he had made some kind of sexual advances or some sort of motion. That said this whole thing in motion. But i want to know whether if you know this. The person who originally called out the please was why are black. Yeah we believe the person who's white sarah page. Actually the girl who was supposedly assaulted didn't didn't cop to the charges or anything like that. Degrom ended up living out most of his days in kansas city into provide a quick final point on this. You know less than a year prior the tulsa had lynched. Someone named roy belton For who's happen to be a white man for hijacking a taxi and killing..
