Metro Atlanta's Cobb County cuts back early voting sites ahead of Senate runoffs, alarming voting rights advocates
"Senate candidates reverend raphael warnock and jon ossoff have joined advocacy groups including the n. double acp and the a. C. l. u. in criticizing cobb county elections officials over their plan to open fewer early voting locations for the january runoffs than they did for the general election. The number of early voting locations will be reduced from eleven ahead of the november third election to just five leading into the january fifth runoff. Cobb is the only major metro county planning to significantly cut the number of early voting locations. Several of the locations. That will not be opened again are in neighborhoods with a higher percentage of black and hispanic residents leading those voters to be disproportionately impacted. Critics say georgia voters have shown all year that when the polls open they will show up and break records. Often warnock said in a joint
Moderna to seek FDA emergency authorization for COVID-19 vaccine
"We're hurtling toward. What may well be a horrible and deadly holiday season as cova cases numbers and hospitalizations. Continue to reach alarming highs over ninety thousand. People are currently hospitalized in the us according to the cova tracking project that's compared to the previous high of about sixty thousand in the spring and summer. So more by half just terrifying. We're also moving quickly towards something that looks like hope to vaccines yesterday. Dern submitted its vaccine for fda authorization aaron. What's the latest on that. Well akilah thanks to the incredible work of scientists and researchers. We've now got to vaccines that. Could start to be distributed to americans within days or weeks maderna's mentioned and pfizer which submitted a couple of weeks ago. As soon as the fda reviews and approves either one for emergency use people can start lining up to get poked. Yeah i am also in line to get poked but as you've been talking about on the show with this first round vaccines were not going to have enough for everybody all at once and we don't have one official plan for who gets to be at the front of the line. That's why the cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices or ac ip is having an emergency meeting today hammer out some guidelines for states on who gets there. Kobe shot i. Yeah so what do we know about their thinking. Well much to the chagrin of the kardashians in everybody who would love to feel just a little more normal by having a massless dance party on a private island. The vaccine will not be distributed based on how many instagram followers. You have or even whether your father invented the toaster strudel I'm really bummed. I that's my dad. I know. I know grudging wieners. The has already decided that the first people in line should be healthcare workers and people who live in long term care facilities like nursing homes according to dr kathleen dueling medical officer at the cdc staff and residents at these facilities have accounted for almost forty percent of all deaths from covid nineteen even though there are less than one percent of the total us population if you add healthcare workers and people who live and work at long term care facilities. That's about twenty four million people even with fda approval and firing on all cylinders. There will only be about forty million vaccine doses available by the end of this godforsaken year and both cohen. Vaccines require two shots. Which means that those forty million doses will be barely enough to meet the needs of the very neediest in this group. Yeah and then. It starts to get a little bit trickier when you get into the other. Essential workers and people with high risk medical conditions. Or you know older people right. So according to the cdc there about eighty seven million essential workers one hundred million high risk adults and fifty three million people sixty five years of age or older. And of course there's some overlap between these categories. These are the people that would be prioritized next but as you can see there are a lot of them if all goes well you could see fifty million more doses ready to go in january another sixty million in february or march doing math divided by to carry the one that means about seventy five million people could be vaccinated against covid nineteen by the end of the first quarter of twenty twenty one which means the more people who are at an elevated risk from covid. Then there will be vaccines and there will not be enough vaccines to reach herd immunity at first and it's going to be a while before we get there and so this is just guidance. According to current lame duck secretary of health and human services. Alex as our love connick guy. Lame duck state governments will ultimately determine how the vaccine will be distributed. But who knows if that assertion will hold after biden takes office on january twentieth knows. Well it's a little bit of an elephant in the room. Here you know. America has a long history of ignoring the needs of and in some cases actively hurting the health of marginalized groups like indigenous americans living on reservations. Black people hello Non native english speakers people experiencing homelessness and the mentally ill among other groups. So how can we be sure that the cova vaccine will just pass them over. That's a really important question akilah. I'm sure there are already rich and powerful people trying to figure out how to skip the line. There's nothing more american than that but the acp seems determined to make sure americans have faith in the fairness of this process. All of their meetings are live streamed. So if you're looking for something to do today you can go ahead and livestream. The meeting in all the votes are public. The fda has also having meetings on vaccines on december tenth and seventeenth. This whole process depends on the public trusting the vaccine enough to let somebody shoot two doses of it into their arms and it seems like so far at least the folks in charge are taking that responsibility seriously and all this is happening with derna advisor will still be gathering more data and monitoring for adverse effects as the first groups of people get vaccinated and then the companies will have to go through the normal. Fda approval process as well. This first round of approval is a fast track process. So getting back to normal isn't site kind of if you squint. It's not that far. It's right there it's kind of kind of. Let's put it this way between now and when everybody who needs to be vaccinated is vaccinated. You'll definitely have time to relearn that foreign language tried to learn in high school and if mostly forgotten about by now
Politicians, Constance Baker Motley
"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia Britannica. Today's politicians but most of her life fighting for civil rights, she put her life at risk to change the course of American history, but she's often left out of history books. Let's talk about Constance Baker Motley. Constance Baker Motley was born on September fourteenth nineteen, forty one in new haven connecticut she was one of twelve children born to working class immigrant parents from the West indies. Constance. Was a bright child who grew up attending integrated schools and quickly fell in love with reading. She didn't learn much about black history in school. But what she did learn about civil rights leaders inspired her she decided she wanted to become a lawyer, but constance couldn't afford higher education. She took a job as a maid for a while before moving on to work for the National Youth Administration an organization focused on providing work an educational opportunities for young adults. Constance was giving a speech at a local community center one evening when her oratory skills impressed a wealthy white philanthropist. He, offered to pay for constants college tuition. So in nineteen, forty, one constance began attending college at Fisk University in Nashville. She later wrote that the train ride down to Tennessee was the first time she experienced overt racism and Jim Crow laws after being forced to ride in a broken down segregated train car, it was a perspective changing moment for constance two years into her attendance at Fisk Constance transferred to New York University and finished her bachelor's degree in economics. Then in nineteen, forty, four constance became the first black woman to be accepted to Columbia law school. After graduating from Columbia in nineteen, forty, six constants worked for the NWC peas legal staff under Thurgood. Marshall who later became a court justice over the course of her work at the N. double ACP constance assisted with almost sixty cases that ended up reaching the Supreme Court. She also personally argued ten supreme court cases and one nine. Constance is work integrated multiple southern state universities putting her toe-to-toe with racist governors determined to bar black students from schools. She also helped protect the right to peaceful protests and opened up parks for. Black. Americans. She did all that despite the sexism and racism personally experienced during her legal career. Some judges actually turned their backs on her and refused to hear her speak. But Constance didn't let others biopsies bar her from success. Her work made her a key player in the civil rights movement and she even occasionally represented Dr. Martin? Luther. King Junior. Constance was constantly in danger when she was working in the south racists threatened her life and the lives of other prominent figures in the black community constance was barred from staying in hotels. So she had to stay with local activists, but even that didn't make her feel completely safe her friend Mississippi civil rights leader Medgar. Evers. was murdered his own driveway. So in nineteen, sixty, five constance left her work in the south and moved back to New York City. Shortly thereafter, she became the first black woman to serve in the New York State Senate. She was also elected president of the borough of Manhattan which made her the first woman in that role. During her time as a politician constance focused on raising up under served communities in the city like Harlem and East Harlem in nineteen sixty, six president Lyndon Johnson appointed constance to the US. District Court in the southern district
The Birth of a Nation & The Origins of the NAACP
"Most early films consisted of one real. Lasted around fifteen minutes and cost a few hundred dollars to produce. All of that changed in Nineteen fifteen. When a film called the birth of a nation? A three hour long saga was released by Director D, W, griffith it instantly stood out as a technological and storytelling marvel. It also stood out as a monumental piece of blatantly racist propaganda. The birth of a nation fixes, certain story of the civil war and reconstruction in the minds of the American public, and that story is that black people were too lazy and ignorant to fully master the citizenship that they were offered by reconstruction. Birth of a nation really didn't have black people it. So these white people in black face portraying congressman who are obviously not ready for self-government. Portraying the idea of. Rapist and these all the stereotypes that are believed by many many Americans. The film was met with fierce resistance from African Americans particularly from a recently founded organization focused on the advancement of the race, the end up boys EP. One of the most important early initiatives of the N. Double ACP was. Against the birth of a nation, they generated a lot of interest by protesting FM and drew in a great deal of support from African Americans. Despite its best efforts, the NWC couldn't persuade censorship boards or theaters. To limit the film's reach. But the young organization gained national prominence because of this campaign. That year membership almost doubled. And that number would continue to grow as it melted the fight against Jim Crow. Those activists descended at the time. Those dissenting voices were always there. They were there during the darkest periods of American history and remembering that tradition to me is almost more important than remembering the failures and the losses and the terrorism the black people faced.
How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?
"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the
Low-income communities of color must be included climate action, activist says
"Richard maybe an is an environmental activist and president of the Kansas City Kansas. Branch of the ACP. He says, it's important to engage low income communities in climate. Action. We don't have a total effort in this country to deal with the reduction in greenhouse gas, which just spinning our wheels in mood but a lack of trust can be a barrier. He says too often strangers come to a community to do outreach but then they leave just as people are getting to know them and an environmental groups maybe infrequently finds he's the only black person in the room. So that means that we still have people that are non persons of color. They are capable of going into those neighborhoods where there's a lack of trust and making a difference. So we suggest finding community partners. For example, he worked with the Sierra Club on an energy efficiency campaign in Kansas City the group gave him background materials. Then he gave presentations to the community maybe and says this train, the trainer approach builds trust and a more effective climate movement.
FTC eyes possible antitrust suit against Facebook
"Check out shares facebook under fire today as the social media giant deals with a boycott in possible anti-trust lawsuit let's get to Julia Carson. Who's got the details. Julia? Well, Melissa, the FTSE's in working on its investigation into facebook since last June and now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the agency is gearing up to possibly file an antitrust lawsuit. Later, this year after investigating concerns that facebook's been using its position to stifle incompetent to stifle competition and examining its acquisitions of potential competitors got a no comment from facebook as well as from the FTC on this report but. That's always the question what could come next while a majority of the five member commission would have to vote in favor of the suit. Then potential remedies could range from breaking off a piece of the company to a fine to restrictions on facebook's operations than to mandate any changes. The FTC, would have to prove that these book violated antitrust law. Now, this conversation comes as a dozen of top celebrities on instagram. Abstain from posting on that platform today in solidarity with the Hashtag Stop Hate for profit campaign the participants including Kim Kardashian with one hundred, Eighty, eight, million followers Katy Perry with one, hundred, seven million or posting messages this week about how they think facebook could address hate speech on facebook and instagram. Now Kim Kardashian posting yesterday quote that she can't sit by and stay silent while these platforms continue to. Allow the spreading of hate propaganda and misinformation and double ACP CEO Derek Johnson saying quote it's speaks volumes that there is now widespread concern but facebook's complacency and W.. C.. P. Of course, is one of the organizers of stop hate for profit. Now, of course, the question is whether this will impact consumer behavior and whether it could drive facebook to make additional changes Melissa, Juliet's interesting the basis the FTC. Potential suit or complaint in that when facebook bought what's up when facebook instagram these were nowhere near competitor's at the time I mean, at the time it seemed for instance, Instagram it was purchased what for a billion dollars it at thirteen employees I don't think that anybody ever thought that it would become what it is. Today was not seen at all as a potential competitor. Absolutely, and Melissa's worth pointing out that the FTC approved both acquisition of Instagram and the acquisition of WHATSAPP and facebook has argued repeatedly that is because these companies were part of facebook the because that they had the investment of giant like facebook that they could grow to the scale and return they are now in interestingly face, you been focused on integrating the back end of. Those APPs allowing people to message between them and they would say these things don't exist in a vacuum and never would have gotten to that scale if they'd been left as a standalone
Celebrating #BlackJewishUnity Week with the National Urban League
"Next week, two of the world's foremost human relations organizations the National Urban League and J. C. will unite against surging levels of Anti Semitism and racism to declare black Jewish unity week. Together, we will strengthen ties between our nations black and Jewish communities and combat all forms of hate. To discuss the importance of this event and to talk about the challenges of fighting racism I'm joined now by Clint Oda, the National Urban League Senior Vice President for Policy Advocacy and the Executive Director of the Urban League's Washington Bureau Clint, thank you so much for joining us. It's a pleasure to be with you. Now this special week, this black Jewish unity week is not happening in vacuum. It's happening because of rising antisemitism and racism in this country my listeners here plenty about antisemitism. So I just wanted to start by asking you this. It's been a Helluva summer. How are you? I would describe myself as weathered a little bit. We've been going through this quite some time this summer at least the notoriety of these police incidents are is much higher than it has been in the past. So we're we're hanging in there. We don't have a choice. Because this work is so important. And it really does reinvigorate me to see that we've got allies in this fight and we've always had allies in this fight but to see them step up in the way that they have his really reinvigorated me and I'm very excited to keep the fight going. I'm sure that our listeners are familiar with the name, the Urban League because it is etched into the annals of history of this country and anyone who knows anything about the civil rights movement will know the names of the Urban League of the ACP Snick we can go deeper also start really getting to the deep cuts. Tell us a little bit about. What the Urban League has been up to lately and what you've been up to especially over the summer in the wake of the George Floyd killing and other events in recent months while we're one, hundred, ten year old civil rights and Economic Empowerment Organization and we have been working on I'd like to say ending systemic racism for the past one. Hundred Years. we've been doing that through our programs such as making. Housing more Ford audible teaching people how to purchase homes how to stay in homes. We've been helping people to get work meaningful work they can sustain them and their families. We've been working the traditional voting rights area and civil rights area for the entirety of our existence but social justice is taken on a real importance in our work right now as as well as doing all this work in the midst of a pandemic So that's so interesting what you say about systemic racism and then specifically citing home-buying and things like that. You didn't mention education, but I think there's a pretty robust education. Portfolio at the National Urban League as well. Absolutely I think if you look at AJC's goals and National Urban League goals, you'll see mirror images of each other. That's been the real cool thing about this that this partnership and all of these things that people are talking about and I'll show my millennial miss. All of the things that people are are posting on instagram talking about explaining what systemic racism is and why you know wealth divides between black and white communities are so important and underpin. So many elements of of racial injustice today all of those things are things that the National Urban League is. Working on absolutely and I can't say that when I started about a year and a half ago I spent the previous ten years working in the United States Senate including four vice presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris. I believe crazy how these things happen working for her and the agenda that she pursued is so consistent with the work that I'm doing today. One of the first things we did when we walked into the place is lead a resolution condemning hate antisemitism anti racism xenophobia homophobia. It's as important to her as it was to me and so coming here was just a natural extension of that but. As I was saying just the Times in which we live are so unique and perilous parallels between the early nineteen sixties which I'm sure we'll talk more about and today are really really compelling. It's almost like we're back in the sixties again, I want to go there right now because this week is going to be all about black Jewish. Relations and the story of black Jewish relations is not a new odd. We might be writing a new chapter, but there's a whole book that comes before us here. So what's one element clint of the Black Jewish relationship that has meant a lot to you personally. I would probably say the religious and spiritual aspect of the relationship. Growing up as a as a young kid in the deep South. There were a lot of Jewish people around although they were president. We didn't know it I grew up Protestant Christian and a great story is on Sundays. We were always able to use the parking lot of the temple across the street and it used to just puzzled me is to how generous the temple folks could be. Given that they must have services on Sunday to. Eat of the temple was empty or they were just being generous over time and as I moved out of south, then went to law school and live here on the East Coast I. got a much greater appreciation, not only for the religion. My Wife, for instance, used to teach at a Jewish day camp in new Rochelle New York but just meeting. So many friends of the Jewish faith drawing those connections between my own faith and their own and. Also learning the rich history of black Jewish communities especially in the era of civil rights as a lawyer was a big fan is that really don't have you could come up with a Thurgood Marshall and no understanding of the work at the end of Lacey P., Legal Defense Fund was complete without understanding the role that Jack Greenberg played and lots of other Jewish folks in philanthropy in spirituality and pursue the nonviolence movement just a wonderful partnership over the years. As a religious person myself that resonates with me a lot as it happens our listeners probably talk about this before for college I went to a joint program between Columbia University and the Jewish illogical seminary and actually not migration at the graduation of the class ahead of me which attended representative John Lewis spoke, and of course, John Lewis all of our listeners will remember passed away this summer I think he actually was an ordain ministered and he told a story that I'm sure you've heard before because I've heard until it multiple times of preaching to his chickens in Troy. Alabama and that had a certain resonance in this audience of basically all Jews including some we're going on into the rabbit. Those ties between our communities where were not everyone is a person of faith but certainly, there is deep faith and religious history kind of threaded throughout our communities I think those are really really powerful things to focus on. And I hope over time you take a look at surveys of religion in the country in other pugh has done some study in this area religion is trending down a little bit. Don't always necessarily consider themselves religious if you look at community surveys and so it's really important to reinvigorate this relationship and put it on a firm spiritual pudding in Judeo Christian tradition is so rich in the African American community and there's just so much there to really build on. I'm really looking forward to getting that history more prominently understood and remembered in our communities. So when we're talking about black Jewish unity right and we're talking about building black Jewish unity they're really two levels to it, and this is something that we talk about with a lot of our advocacy work. At AJC, there's the grassroots and there's the grass tops right. I want to ask you about both. Let's start with the grass tops right at the high profile level at the celebrity role model level, the politician level what do you think? Needs to happen there to demonstrate the Jewish people and black people should work together and are stronger together. The grass tops may be one of the more important roles in unity and understanding. We are a celebrity driven culture for better or for worse and ideas have a lot more resonance and a lot more acceptance when someone that you know and admire to saying the same thing. So grass tops to that extent are the key in moving opinion. Notions like reparations notions like black lives matter notions like social justice have mood and pretty quickly I think because athletes because celebrity on television and other artists have been saying the same thing and in a short period of time we've seen. Opinions shift in this country not just age not just religion not just race, but everything seems to be moving in the right direction from a popular standpoint. The grass roots which we're going to talk about next is where you really determine how sustainable this movement is. Right. Yeah. So tell us about that I mean in our neighborhoods and our schools in our churches, our synagogues mosques, how can we strengthen those relations? Sure. I've seen a lot of encouraging evidence that we can do this at grassroots level. This is a very human. Very, empathetic movement when we're talking about grassroots, we've seen some of these grassroots efforts come up in. Pittsburgh for instance and New Jersey. And in Brooklyn where when horrible acts of hate murder violence take place the communities come together and they usually come together I with religion. It's the pastors it's the churchgoers. It's the temple goers that really give me some hope that we aren't just a moment, but that we're in a movement. So I think in many ways, the church and the faith community are are in central piece of grassroots. That's kind of what I'm seeing sort of on the ground right now I think black Jewish unity week can drive those grassroots even deeper because understanding the tragedy of the moment is not nearly as important as understanding these deep historical ties right in our faith and our families and what we want from each other in shared history sometimes things that aren't so great sometimes shared history of oppression. Lutely, and for our listeners WHO WANNA learn more about black Jewish unity week, they should go to AJC, dot org, slash black, Jewish unity, or text black Jewish unity all one word to five to eight, eight nine not to keep hitting the faith note here you know we're we're a pretty secular organization in JC but I love what you said about the houses of worship I live on the upper west side of Manhattan which is this incredible. Kind of Jewish bastion historic whatever and if you go twenty blocks down for me in twenty blocks up for me, you probably are GonNa pass by twenty synagogues total and we're also steps away, I mean. We're a mile two miles away from Harlem and the two neighborhoods are very different and that's something that's worth exploring as well. Why that is how that happened etcetera, the strengths and the challenges of both communities, but I was in synagogue on. Chabad after the shooting in Muncie and Lo and behold there in the front row, was a a delegation from church in Harlem that wanted to come in and to be there and to show solidarity, and they got up and spoke after services, and then fast forward to this summer were all obviously in lockdown. But the rabbi of the synagogue made kind of Zoom appearance at that churches services after the killing of George Floyd talk about solidarity with. The black community in the wake of the killings of and Taylor George Floyd and so many of the challenges of injustice that are being faced right now and I think you're right that the grassroots level it. So often does start in those kinds of houses of worship, our religious leaders reaching out one to the other in something that you said, really struck me about the proximity of Latte community and Jewish community in relatively small plot of land. As a policy Wonk I'm sure you appreciate this but either just for the benefit of your listening audience, blacks and Jews were both subject to the same kinds of redlining restrictions in many ways throughout much of the United States where banks would identify areas and they would say this is a desirable area in this is a less desirable area, and so you know Jewish and black families were often circumscribed by these lending lines that still have an ongoing lingering vestige today. If you look at housing segregation patterns certainly in the African. American community they are just as bad as they were in the nineteen sixties things like bike homeownership, which is at a low point especially because pandemic in or closures any fictions Is Worse than it was in the late nineteen sixties. So some of these things we were still wrestling with they seem twins dental, but they're not incidental at all. But again, it's this proximity you know that gives me hope and hope that even outside of crisis, we can expand and strengthen these relationships crises great reasons to get together but it's the more sustainable relationships happened over time outside of the crisis built on shared values and shared interests. So once again, this Jewish unity week has the potential to to be a real game changer. Well, so talk A. Little bit more about that. What do you hope is going to come out of this week if you believe that the basis of a better relationships and greater understanding comes from exposure than my hope is that we can use this week to focus on our rich history on our shared cultural values and to help understand things that we may not understand about each other but to be able to come together in a safe place and talk about those things, this has been tried in lots of different ways you know with lots of different impetus over the years. But in this country, as you know until you can make a sort of a holiday of it until hallmark starts to sell. It really difficult to have something that is stained and that you can go back to know every year. and. So that's the thing that excites me the most I know how excited I was to leave the south. And to meet people of different faiths including the Jewish faith and and get to know them get to count them among in my close friends. I would like that for everyone and so that when issues come up in our communities as we saw in Brooklyn I think earlier this year there was a really terrible assault in Brooklyn by a woman African American woman and if we had a built in long standing. Unbreakable trust between our communities. We can weather the storms we can come together and mutual condemnation, mutual understanding and mutual healing. It's not enough just to condemn something, but it's more important. I think to learn from it and make sure that it doesn't happen doesn't happen again and then five years hence, we can be sending each other black Jewish unity. We cards produced by hallmark absolutely creating whole new language in a around. It, it could be it could be urban slang and Yiddish expressions that. Unless you're in the know you don't you don't know. I'm hopeful hallmark if you're listening. Might be onto something big year. We'll see we'll see what's things we can pull their. I want to close by asking you for a few tips for our listeners actually the few months ago we had an amazing friend of AJC on the podcast named Eric. Ward. The Executive Director of the Western states center. We were talking about racism and I asked him what he thought as a professional opponent of racism and as a black man, what he thought American Jews should be doing to fight racism. His answer was pretty surprising to me actually because he said the best way for us to fight racism was to fight antisemitism since in his work he's bound that white supremacist racism is always based on a foundation of Antisemitism. So I I'm just interested in your reaction to that I, I think I'm citing him basically correctly I'm interested in your assessment of. That and second I want to give you a chance to answer the question from square one. Also, you know what would you like to see Clinton? What would you like to see American Jews doing proactively now to be effective allies in the fight against racism and I WANNA go back to Eric's point. Let me see if I can make this one I. I've only recently come to understand the difference between anti-racism. An anti-discrimination has a lawyer I've grown up understanding that if you want to fix racism, you have to attack it as a matter of non-discrimination don't discriminate against people in hiring don't discriminate against kids in school, and sometimes that anti-discrimination is in the form of color blindness. So whatever the remedy is, it can't be race specific right because the constitution doesn't allow such a thing but let's let's just come up with big broad sweeping solutions that african-americans might incidentally benefit from. You know by virtue of maybe being lower middle income people, we're going to come up with solutions that will work for everybody including African Americans. I've now come to understand that that's just not cutting. It goes great disparities that you talk about the at the beginning their persistent for a reason it's like trying to perform surgery with your eyes close, but you may be able to route around and feel where the patient is but your ability to be precise with a scalpel. And and fix the problem identified at problems impossible. If you don't open your eyes that has been the character of how we approach race in this country for decades. I've now come to understand and have really been encouraging others to join me in. This is becoming an anti-racist. It saying I may not have owned slaves I may have never committed an act of racism or discrimination. Even if that's true. You have to personally get involved to fix these problems. It's not enough to say, well, you know we have laws to address those issues. Laws had been very inexact and very unhelpful. In many ways you've got to get in there, roll up your sleeves and say, okay, is lack of capital in the black community a problem I need to figure out how to get more capital into black communities are educational disparities problem. Okay. I need to figure out how do we improve schools whether it's funding whether it's through pedagogy whatever we need to do, but we need to come up with solutions that actually help. Like people. And not just. Continue to perpetuate these gaps in Hustle meeting well in educational opportunities and health and civic engagement. That's my biggest message to the community, the An anti races. Just. As you know, we should all be fighting against anti-semitism. It's not enough to turn your back and say, well, you know they're not talking about, knee they are talking about you. And it's when we get to the point where those protests and in the halls of Congress where we're trying to make change we see people who look like you see people who would like me and seek people or Asian and and people who are all different walks of life saying we are here because we care and black lives matter and we've got to change the way this country works. I want to dive in and ask a million more questions and and talk so much more about where you just this conversation we are unfortunately out of time. So I hope that this will be an effective way to wet our listeners appetites for the week ahead, I should just add that in addition to his impressive titles at the National Urban. League clint wears another half. It's one of my favorite. Hats it's the hat organizational podcast host and Clinton is one of the hosts of for the movement the National Urban League podcast which people should check out and especially check out for this next episode where my colleague Dan Elbaum will be a guest on the show. We will link to the podcast in our show notes, Clinton let me just say once more. Thank you so much for joining us this week. She said thank you for letting me be here.
What we'll remember from the 2020 Biden convention
"For more on Biden's speech. In this week's historic virtual Democratic convention we're joined by two guests in Massachusetts Dr. Cornel. West with a professor of the practice of public. Philosophy at Harvard. University author of numerous books including race matters and black prophetic fire. His new podcast called the tight rope in two thousand Seventeen Cornell Westwood's in Charlottesville with. Neo Nazis stormed the campus he and other clergy members were protected by anti-fascists from the mob white supremacists and in Baltimore Maryland were joined by Ben Jealous Precedent people for the American way former president of the ACP. He ran for governor of Maryland in two thousand eighteen we welcome you both to democracy. Now, Ben Jealous congratulations on your new position as head of people for the American way. Why don't you start off by responding to this week's Democratic convention your thoughts on. Where the two now nominees the. President not presidential nominee, Joe Biden and historic a selection of Kamla Harris, to be his running away their positions and how. They represent what you do or not. Theme this convention was really one of unity. This was a time. When we have to come together to defeat a president, who is the most evil the most corrupt than any of us have seen and That says a lot. It also was the time we saw two two nominees who we as progressives. No, we can work with. Kamla. Sister who introduced her Maya. The former head of the ACLU of northern. California. Kamo ran for D. A. and much more conservative time and yet did so as outspoken opponent of the death penalty who then held her ground early in term when she was tested, would an officer was killed an the entire liberal establishment northern California came down on her and she said the death penalty is wrong period. Tremendous Kirch and Joe Biden who Bernie himself said is poised to be the most progressive presidents since FDR. And so while it's not Bernie. And while maybe it's not somebody else someone hope for what we do know is that these are people that we can work with. These are people who their best represent our best values literally the daughter of civil rights activists, the sister of a civil rights lawyer who are self told me fifteen years ago she became a prosecutor because it wasn't enough to just fight the power. We also had to hold the POW. And I've seen her act courageously. So I'm I'm very hopeful and I have no doubt that we can work with. Joe. Like addy who spoke so beautifully, and that was the true highlight for me. I believe that we must move towards Medicare for all I also believe that Joe Biden will take us further in that direction certainly. Donald. Trump and frankly further than most presidents that that that we have an opportunity here to move things in the right direction again and as organizers. That's the most important thing to get out of any presidential election is a president that you can move in the right direction. and Professor Cornel West your reaction to this week in the positions of the Democratic candidates for president if I president. Day My points of reference really are the freedom dreams that we just heard from zoom commodores and genius Lionel Richie. Of Ella, Baker, who was invoked by brother Biden and the first sentence. Of his speech the Alabama who was a revolutionary L. A. Baker who was working on the mass party organizing committee would offer annoy the Great William Kuntsler for actually working for third parties because he thought, she thought that the two party system was so decrepit and then also to Curtis Mayfield that they've been playing over and over again, the move on up but you got to move on from poverty. And in order to do it, you gotTa Talk About Poverty. If you go move on from Wall Street greed and Wall Street crimes, you gotTa talk about, Wall Street Green Wall, street cry go move on up from the Pentagon militarism around the world you gotTa talk about it. Those are the taboo issues that we don't get serious wrestling with. So when you really. Talk about the soul of America, the battle for the soul of America much of that so has been evacuated by the Pentagon, cry greed and the Wall Street greed and the inability of the police and other institutions at treat black people and Brown people, Indigenous People as human beings so I agree with brother. Ben. In terms of being part of an anti fascist coalition. That I think we're forced to vote for buying, but we're not going to lie about buying. WE'RE NOT GONNA lie about Harris. We're going to tell the truth about their. Captivity and their. Refusal to hit Pentagon money spending and militarism around the world at Wall Street, green and. Speak substantively to issues of poverty you can have massive protests all around the country, the largest in the history of country, you can have brother Barbara. Assisted theorist talking about poverty, and then when you get to the convention, you get this spectacle that has nothing to do with wrestling with poverty. I think court breath corey was the only one that even talk about it for the most part none of the major figures did thank God that Bernie thank God LLC. Got A little ninety minutes as opposed Republic Ninety Second Major. Sometimes. Ninety seconds, Ninety seconds so that I you know I'm I'm with Ben in terms of we got the vote for Biden but never ever lying about him and not coming to terms with the fact that. This moment with the decline and fall of the American empire it looks as if the system is unable to generate enough energy to seriously reform itself, it remains sanitized superficial. We getting Lawrence Wealth bubbles rather than prince the revolution I want to go to the Princess Revolution Concert I walk fundamental change.
Ryan Reynolds says he and Blake Lively are "deeply and unreservedly sorry" for plantation wedding
"Ryan Reynolds has apologized for marrying his wife Blake lively on a slave plantation. He said it's something that will always be deeply an unreservedly. Sorry Four. He said that they had no idea. The venue was a slave plantation before the wedding he said it's impossible to reconcile what we saw at the time was a wedding venue on pinterest. What we saw after was a place built upon devastating tragedy years ago we got married again at home but shame works in weird ways he said giant mistake like that can either cause you to. Shut down or it can reframe things and move you into action. It doesn't mean you won't f. up again but re patterning in challenging lifelong social conditioning is a job that doesn't end. Yeah. You know sometimes you know people apologized to just to apologize he didn't know what it was. He just seen a place in rented it out how many times do we always that you know you see a whole venue and you're into doubt. Then when you find out later on like damn I, didn't know like I I don't I don't look at him anyway that. But I am sorry looked at the website before the wedding and on the website it says there's nine historic slave cabins on the property where people can learn how black Americans who worked and lived as well as the struggles that we're faced. So I'm sorry I. That's foul but if he nonni honestly JJ L. A. Place, then that's something different. But if he knew in read all of that instilled it yeah for him. But you know back in May, they announced they donated two hundred thousand dollars to the ACP. Legal Defense Fund and. They talk about systemic racism. It's a time to reflect on decisions. You make an on yourself and I don't know about the backlash that he got from that because sometimes people do things because they get backlash but maybe if you. Truly understand, it is just a lot going on absolutely.

We're dwelling quite a while in in two thousand and one land. Aren't we today tomorrow? Yeah and it turns out that that's important. Because David didn't see two thousand one Wimbledon. Much of two thousand and one full stop you in a windowless room in the ASS. End of Germany awesome thing.

Time I was in my fourth year working for the ACP tool I'd been communications manager for three and a half years traveling around I had informed the powers that be that I would like to have got writing and interviewing and all that sort of thing, and they said okay. Then you can go work on this new thing that we've got called a website. And it's and we produce it in Hamburg Germany. So off. You go to the office that. Germany.

I've signed up for the rest of the entire week until the weekend when I would go off to Gustad for the tournament that. So anyway, that's when I discovered that actually it was available on BBC radio through their website in inverted commas I that I'd never heard of before, but anyway so I was able to listen to the BBC radio coverage throughout the rest of the week, and that's what made me decide. That I wanted to be a commentator right and that week. And he fight off emails to to the commentators he'd be listening to. You. Yeah Yeah, Inkatha. Who is the tennis correspondent? Richard Evans, very long time experienced respected journalist and reporter send the Sunday Times tennis correspondent Dana coincide of the BBC.

That's about it. Take on a per son drive it into the ground, all attitude not much content. Why shrimps repeat that's essentially what radio does. And I wanted to talk to people. I mean, I I was just thought like, you know, you're talking to hundreds of thousands of people in what the fuck are you saying it's a fat guy eating wings. That's that's what it is. So if I had a microphone, and it was hooked up to ten rose bowls that were filled to capacity, and I had it for four hours a day. I would spend half the time watching mortally obese guy guys. He'd hot wings. It seems ridiculous to me. But yet that's the direction. That's where we're heading. And then. It becomes one of these negative spirals because it's like are. We just keeping up with the dumb asses or are week causing the demise of the intelligent people. Are we causing them to be done? We think about it, you know, because that's the logic. That's the logic and radio. Like, look, you're smart fine. But everyone is listening to you is dumb so dumb it up for them as opposed to try to raise their wariness a little and have them come up in meet you, I don't like the dome it up policy, and it's always been one that's been around and radio.

I got into radio many years ago to speak my mind, and to do what I wanted to do and to connect with people, and I'd rather have ten smart people than a billion retards listening to me. And I've always felt that way. And that's what I've always loved about my fans, Jack silver did not feel the same way. As I did when it came to that. And I guess that's a good place to start Jack's basically, a good guy. But he knows not what he does. He's a radio guy in radio guys just do radio. And it doesn't really matter. Whether they have me or the grease man or Tom leykis or Howard Stern. They pretty much have one mode and that's radio mode. And I've always said this about radio guys, they're like beavers, and if you took a whole flock brood. Murder. I don't know what a bunch of beavers are called clan of beavers family of beavers. If you took a whole bunch of beavers and you put them on the roof of the Sears tower. They would start looking for wood to build a fucking damn why? Because that's what beavers do they build dams, and it doesn't matter whether they're in a stream or seventy five stories above Chicago. They're just going to build a fucking Dame. And that's what Jack silver does that's his approach to radio. My pro is different. It's long form. And maybe it's not good for morning. I don't know. You know, I did it at night for eleven years. I was told once a month for eleven years to move it along and take more phone calls and stop telling personal stories and quit complaining about flying first class, and I did it anyway, and it seemed to work out. So I brought that same mindset in. Doing morning radio except for now. I wasn't in an empty building in my muck Lux with my sweatpants talking to Dr drew. I was in an open office building. And I could see Jack through the window and all the other suits, and they wanted to build some dams, and my feeling is is if you left me alone. Eventually we could get to where we wanted to get. But that wasn't going to do it. They were very impatient. Beavers and again, Jack's not a bad guy. He's just a beaver who wants to build a dam, and he's not used to dealing with guys like me. So he had a lot ideas. Lot ideas. Like the wing ball. We get a bunch of fat guys in there. And we see how many wings how many hot wings they can eat in twenty minutes. And I would always say I don't have anything to say about that. And he would say, but it's huge in Philly..

"Yeah. We there is a story in the news today of how a recently Representative to the to the legislature. Came under attack from a local in double A C P member. It's it's crazy. And when it first came to my attention earlier today, I'm like, this is this is something that should be true. But it's something that happens. All too often, the N double ACP the national association for the advancement of colored people set out against. A republican. Who happens to be an American of African descent I had the opportunity to speak to Representative black men today to try to get down to the bottom of what what happened in the center ring of the conservative circuits. We have Representative of Blackman just newly elected right here in the great state of Arizona. And all of a sudden, we have controversy Representative. I hear that a Bernie Sanders fan and head of the east valley. N double ACP is calling for you to be taken to task what exactly prompted this command a conservative. I'm a constitutional conservative. So I'm sure he doesn't like that being a big burning fan and supporter, but more importantly, Roy Keane's comments behaviors. Revealing tapes. Of a conflict of interest there. So I'm kind of confused of what you know, his his his his end up pe- platform says one thing and then he's workers for Bernie. So I try to figure out where he got on that would be the first conflict of interest. But when you say conflict of interest, I think you're referring to the charter of the N double ACP is that correct? Exactly, exactly. You know, what the what the charter does the we know it's talking about equal opportunity to give it a voice to everyone and not really getting off political size. But making sure that each side is showing respect and dignity and for the president of the east valley. In WCTC to actually contradict what the platform states. You know, maybe he should be an apparition either. How many members are part of the in double ACP and east valley? You know, what I could not tell you. I don't have that information. But I'm sure they have a growing number, and I'm sure the majority of the members in in that organization do good things for the community and try to move the message of the NWC forward. However, the leader of the east valley in double ACP is not setting a good example for his members are his staff. I tell you what about Representative black Ben you are being very kind and being very charitable. I I would be surprised if the east valley N double ACP has more than four members. Even if they do they do the the national association for the advancement of colored people is very much antiquated at least update the name. But to your point, according to their charter, you would be a colored person, and instead of advancing you and seeing that there's representation now in two parties in the valley you instead we're being attacked, and you were told that you should be taken to task would it. What do you think he meant by taking to task? Well, I grew up in the south, and my grandmother used to tell us if you go down the street, or if you deal with this certain person, they're going to take you to task and that actually myth. Taking you out and beating you or doing something worse. Now, if you look at history, we talk about slave history ever, the taskmasters and one the slave was not doing what he was supposed to do or she was supposed to do. They would take them out the task that it actually cold and putting out a word to followers or what have you? If you see this person put him back in line. And if you have to do physical means to do it do it. But make sure that he is on or she is on the same sheet of music as the rest of us to make sure the message is the same. So the code, you know, people speaking codes all the time, and the N double ACP will often say that Republicans speaking code to press and not give opportunity to folks, this is the same thing that the president of the east valley in double ACP is was doing to me to this. Followers. He was speaking in code to sit out a message of hate. And I sent out a message to basically do harm to me. If if so humid, I grew up in the south, we both know history, and we both know exactly what he was talking about. So that's why I took this as a threatening took it serious, and you should Representative Blackman. You know, here's the deal. You talk about colds nowadays deal folks, like to say on the lead today whenever President Trump says something controversial that that is a dog whistle. That's a dog was Orissa foghorn. And this just the institutionalized racism will the reality here is that you had the head of the N double ACP, ROY Tatum who is using the language of the old south the clan. He's using which in our history tells us that Republicans were were black black. We puppets of initially because the Republican party was the party of Lincoln, which freed the slaves, and it wasn't until the thirties that things are to change. What I find alarming is that we have an American of African descent that still stuck in that line of thinking you have pointed out the hypocrisy of the situation. Let me ask you this. Do you think that the NWEA CPI the ROY Tatum's of the world? Do you think that they see the hypocrisy of voting party line when it comes to things like abortion, which takes more black lives than anything else? These days for talking about that. Yeah. It is. You know, we talked about they talk about we talk about black lives matter. We talk about making sure the black communities have opportunity that we take care of our younger generation. However, we're signing on to a method of killing our young in the world at a higher rate in any other demographic or any other community than any other ethnic background and we signed onto that blindly. So why I am I a conservative. I don't believe in that. I don't believe and and taken away because someone says it's okay to do because that's. Stain to do. And that's what the democrat party does. That's what the Boertien issue is. And I'm not, you know, I'm not part of finding all of that that sort of party line. So I don't think you know, as far as taking the task. I think that it is absurd on every single facet beyond that. We should be able to vote for who we want to vote for no matter what are s an ethnicity gender or sexual preference. So I am glad that I had an opportunity to talk to you about this Representative. I want to say congratulations to winning your race. I think that this is something that's going to be good for not just the party. But for all of the city all of the state, and the the NWEA CPI is antiquated and is pretty much irrelevant. And it is done. A welcome, sir. To the twenty first century. And I'd like just to say, you know, be bad a conservative again. Dan, a veteran twenty two years served, the United States military several deployments. This sort of thing is not going to intimidate me. The people of the district sixth district elected me to do a job. They need a voice than I am at voice, and I am not going to let a individual or a A N double ACP. Tell me that I cannot speak for the people in my community and my district. They're going to have to come with a little more than switch. Well, I'll tell you. What if the if the night writers or the N double ACP, come after you just give me a heads-up? I'll be your Huckleberry. Was Representative black. But you know, what I forgot to wish. Happy black history month. Yes. Yes. The twenty first century. You have the N double ACP violating is charter trying to tear down another brother why? Because he doesn't wear the democrat label he escaped the democrat plantation. And now they've got the people out there that taskmasters trying to drag them back in. No, thank you. No. Thank you. Yeah. We had that interview. It'll be podcast in a few minutes. You could check it out by going to a doubt downloading the free iheartradio app at six I'm sorry at five fifty five.
