"All right. Welcome back. You know, it's getting crazier by the minute with how the major major Silicon Valley social media players along with all of the mainstream media, of which you called in the lame stream media. They just want to keep feeding us what they want us to hear. And they basically put a blockade on anything negative about Joe Biden. We even got shut down here a couple times. Because they didn't like some of the content about hydroxide, chlorine Quinn and about trump being supported by the UFC. So we've had some things. But, you know, I talked about last week. 50 Cent. And how you know he is a young, successful male from the African American community who saw Joe Biden's tax plan and said, No, no, no, no, no, no, Forget that. I don't want to be 20 cents. But then, oddly enough cities ex wife was on with Jimmy Fallon. And this is what she had to say about my boyfriend, right? 50 Cent and his support of Donald Trump. You know what's going on between you and I saw your tweets and I go way what's happening Because you said he was your favorite ex boyfriend and then What is he doing? Supporting Trump? He says he doesn't want to pay 62% of taxes, which by the way is in a planet of Joe Biden's. It's a lie, so he doesn't want to pay 62% of taxes because he doesn't want to go from being 50 cents, 20 on eye on. I had to remind him that he was a black person so he can't vote for Donald Trump, and he shouldn't be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him. Because he's worried about his own personal pocket book. So I haven't heard back from him yet, But I am willing Teo, you know, still the deal and more ways than one. If he changes his mind and publicly denounces Donald shot, I might be willing to go for another spin if you want..

"Public education? It's a disaster, especially in blue cities with and with democratic governors and mayors. And have been running these places for decades, which is why they're losing population in all these states. I mean, what guaranteed pre k through college loan forgiveness. Student loan forgiveness, guarantee jobs, government jobs, government wages, government vacation. Government, healthy food, government. Healthcare, government retirement, government government government. Okay, Well, how do you get there, You tax people into oblivion. And then you get rid of the lifeblood of the economy. And you promise you're gonna spend trillions of dollars on this new green deal. We did that, too with Solyndra. We did that, too, with the first stimulus ended up with the worst recovery in the 40 years because of that stupidity. Now they're going to quadruple down on dumb. By the way, consumer spending Rose rose more than expected, and we broke the 33.1% GDP growth. A record by nearly two times consumer spending, which is two thirds of the U. S economic activity that increased a lot in the month of September as well. So we have a lot of good news. On the economic front. A za relates to what's going on with the campaign. Democrats are hitting the panic button. Apparently early. This is the politico today, Early turnout in Florida's heavily Democratic mind Miami Dade County. It's plummeted way below what it was in 2016. The Biden campaign has now broken out into a cold sweat political points out that Democrats are sounding the alarm about week. Voter turnout rates in Florida's biggest county, Miami Dade, or a strong Republican showing is endangering Joe Biden's chances in the nation's biggest swing state. By the way, there was this Sienna New York Times poll showed in Philly. You know that's Philadelphia 24% of the vote going to Donald Trump that would be record setting, and that's game changing. Democrats. They go on in this article or turning out at lower rates than Republicans and at lower rates that at this point in 2016, when Clinton won by 29 points of Miami Dade, One particular point of concern is AH, among the Bidens campaigns, decisions to discourage field staff from knocking on doors, etcetera, etcetera. Anyway, that's that's now apparently coming back to bite him, Mr. Shut down, Mr Hide in the basement, Mr Doom and gloom, Mr Dark winter, you know the ever weak, frail and forgetful Joe Biden anyway, so they're sounding the alarm there, and Trump has broadened his coalition. Little Wayne now joining 50 Cent and other rappers. Now they're all coming out in favor of Donald Trump is Donald Trump actually told them in that last debate, all that he has done for the African American community. And all that. I see that Biden did was partner with a former Klansman who filibustered the Civil Rights Act was against the Voting Rights Act to stop school busing on integration of schools because he didn't want his kids going to schools that were racial jungles that's now gotten out there. And his comments about predators and the eight years is VP didn't do criminal justice reform. All right. Four days. You're the ultimate jury. Take this seriously is my advice. The answer is ignore everything and vote. Don't think about polls don't think about turnout. I don't care allow the time that might be needed to wait and vote..

"And last question if you could do anything, what would you do to improve health and health care in Rural America? Honestly, I would study it what we find is that where the research sort of lands where there's an emphasis in that in that, you know that academic looks sometimes so follows practice because then there's evidence there's papers. There's peer reviewed documents for example, and so I think it's just really important that we continue to study the impacts of Health inequality on Rural communities of color and this is not just because of the pandemic or dealing with covid-19, but also continuing to study and look at the impacts of health and equity and mental health disparities of communities of color living in rural areas in a journal Health specifically for our mommas who are living in a rural community. Does it look different do we need to take a different approach and none of this is to point a negative finger? At any sort of service or mainstream medical, you know facility. It's more just to see are we missing something? That's the question that I always have them. What are we missing when it comes to trying to make sure that everyone has equal and culturally competent access to Healthcare in any Community you live in whether that is an urban center or especially if that is in one of our rural locations. So again, it's not for me. It's not a negative look as in placing blame, but it's not a we didn't recognize this. We didn't realize that this looks different here. And so how can we study this to find out what those conditions are what bought a different so then we can address them. We can actually tackle them and work our way through them. Well, thank you Ashley. Thank you so much. That's Ashley Marshall promoting thorough analysis of public health issues to ensure the best path for improving the health of our rural communities.

Harris County which you mentioned, which a lot of attentions payment. One of my favorite statistics on Harris County is Barack Obama went by I? Think Nine Hundred Votes in Twenty Twelve Hillary.

Exponential growth in the margins there. What do you see happening in Harris? County. I think all of the demographic changes and people then writing about all over the last fifteen, twenty years growth in the Latino community growth in the Asian American community has been undercover and the African American community and those suburbs around Houston abandoning the Republicans you can tell that because sports Ben County. The Houston that used to be on base for none other than Tom delay. Is Now, now, blues, it has a Democratic County judge who was elected in indian-american who was elected in two thousand eighteen. That's how much these suburbs of change and that's how wearing along with the demographic changes powering Texas board being blue. You guys also have a bunch of local races and this mean the state Democratic Party. Has Been For many years a joke. A rump enterprise I don't mean that to individual Democrats from your state I. Just here you know what I mean. It's it's it's been a rough go down there in that state capital. You guys basically locked out you show up you watch the Republicans, go to war with each other over stuff, and then you walk away. You got a shot at actual statehouses here down ballot. What is that looking like? We saw Democrats need pick up nine seats in the State House to gain back the majority, it would be the first time since two, thousand three, the Democrats would have it, and importantly, this would fund just in time to have a seat at the table for redistricting land that's dawn in the next couple of years Fortunately, the Texas Democratic Party has been better organized better, prepared better resource. Than it has been in a very long time and that's a great thing because they've been a lot more effective. Yeah, it's Leader dog'll starting to me is an amazing. Story to people about.

"Strikes me is that in modern medical experiments you always have a test group and a control group in the test group gets the drug and the control group gets jealous Cibo and then the researchers see if and how much the people in the test group improve over those who have the placebo, you know, but as you stated treating syphilis, not the goal documenting the process was the goal which brings me to the next question in the book you use the phrase devalue black bodies. Tell me what that means, Sure. So really what I mean by that when we think about devaluing black bodies is that we know that the first slaves were brought over and sixteen nineteen and since then what many people don't know is that African American slaves especially were used during the time of slavery for a lot of testing they were not seen at home. Time as people. They were seen as Beast of Burden. They certainly were less then at one point they counted as three-fifths of people and so testing on them simply made since the same way we test on Lab Rats now and so one of the most shocking I think examples of this is really a lot of modern Gynecology off. So many people have probably heard of Henrietta Lacks at this point where her cells were used without her consent, but what people don't know is that a lot of the medical procedures in modern Gynecology office were tested on African American female slaves without anesthesia. Additionally. We saw a lot of sterilization of African-Americans for various reasons again, without their consent. And so there's been this continuous devaluation of the bodies of black people and it didn't stop at slave. What we can link it to now and I know that you just did a podcast about maternal health is actually that so one of the things that we know is that we don't know why African American women are dying at a higher rate in childbirth because nobody has studied them and honestly, it's because there wasn't a lot of value placed on studying them. There wasn't a lot of funding Place specifically on looking at maternal health and maternal outcomes for people of color. And so again, and that is devaluing that body that is devaluing the access to adequate Healthcare the access to Real and True health care that communities of color are facing every day. And with that at the beginning of the pandemic, we were told to stay home work from home. Stay away from those not in our immediate family unit as much as possible wife. Is it harder for minorities? Sure. What we find is that it is harder mainly for people of color to abide by those rules because of I'm going to talk on two main issues. The first is employment. So often times what you see is that individuals of.

"His wife is blaming the plant for not shutting down. So they kind of insinuate that if Donald Trump hadn't saved the plant, then maybe this guy would still be alive today, which is a ridiculous argument to make, but they didn't shut down the I remember reading. They shut down for two or three weeks. They've got 800 people. Still, there were jobs that Are still employed. 800 still have jobs. But you read this article. You could literally make two separate articles out of what the star wrote today. You could say Donald Trump didn't do crap. I can't believe one guy's dead and only 800. People have jobs. You could also say this place was about to shut down completely. And 800. People have jobs. They might not like their hours. They might not like the way they're treated, but there's no gun to their head saying you have to stay a carrier. Also this, okay? I'm kind of scrolling through this here right now. This article says I mean, they've got people working on, you know, 8 to 10 hour days, seven days a week. They're cranking through this economy. So how many people still have jobs? They're about 800, okay? But you read the Star article. People are dying of covert because Donald Trump save the factory and people with jobs and keep in mind. There's a lot of people that wish they had a job right now are saying Yeah, we're employed, but we don't like the hours and we're working seven days a week. So again, you could spin that, however you want. I don't know what alternate reality we're living in. But I just saw Randall Tweet last night from Lil Wayne. Everybody know who Little Wayne is? Sure. The rapper? Yes. Are you familiar with Lil Wayne? I never heard from OK is a rapper guy. He wraps. He's a rapper guy never sounded more listed in your entire life. He's he does the hippity hop probably one of the most famous rappers in the world, and he tweeted out a picture of It was him and Donald Trump. And he supports Donald Trump in some of the work that he's doing with the African American community and Twitter melted down. Trump's rolling in the endorsements right now. Interesting endorsements. Really? I talked about the other night How Kim Kardashian was on with David Letterman that talk show. Do you know what it's called Murray the talk show thinking, My next guests are my caste needs no introduction, and he tried Like hell to get Kim Kardashian to talk bad about Donald Trump. And she wouldn't because he's the one that helped her in Canyon with the whole Ah Prison reform initiative. Against interesting endorsements from ice cubes, getting called a sell out because, he said, at least Donald Trump was willing to meet with me and talk so again, so reset the man who wrote f the police. The self proclaimed n word you love to Hate is now a sell out because he actually met and talked with the president even know that's considered an endorsement. I know a clue who Ice Cube voted for, Nor do I care, You know who did give him an endorsement today? Brett Farve, Brett Farve tweeted his endorsement and heared with Donald Trump at a rally in Wisconsin and also Jay Cutler. Jay Cutler, former Bears quarterback. Now he offered his endorsement that Donald Trump, but Saturday was picked off at the line and take back the house. So the president at 3 A.m.. He put out a tweet, hinting that the Supreme Court would try to help Biden if it came down to a decision, which is a pretty The alarming thing to think about at this point, if it has to go to the Supreme Court, right? And this was a 3 A.m. tweet from the president. So here to read exactly what he said, because I want to make sure we got all of our words. Right? This is the first time we've had this celebrity in to read some Trump tweets. Ladies and gentlemen, star of stage and screen. I know him best from the film Roadhouse. Ladies and gentlemen, Sam Elliott. Sleepy Joe Biden was actually elected president.

Ah, 312981 72 100 talking about name changes right now. Terry from Lakeview. Welcome to 7 20 wg and the team awkward phone line. Go ahead, Terry. Hey, time love you show. Appreciate taking my quiet one of the chime in real quickly here on on the name change thing, While I understand the importance of doing away with unnecessary, unnecessarily inflammatory nicknames and whatnot. I can't help but think we caught it these days are kind of scorched earth culture where were taken and em. I'm off the shelves were taken Uncle Ben off the shelves were changing. You know, Indian names. Redskin names were tearing down statues and I have to have myself I was caught up in symbolism and not focused enough on substance because I'd like to know how many black wives were improved when we tore all the statues down a month and 1/2 ago how many Native American lives? Too, because we changed the name to put ourselves on the back of assuage our guilt in the short run, but long term really what has been accomplished and anything structural and address or are we just trying to do virtue, signaling to make yourself feel better without actually having to roll up our sleeves and address the problems that affect The African American community. War and Native American communities. So it's a great question and a great invitation that you're bringing up here. Terry, are you Are you yourself dealing in in different ways? Then you have to say, I don't know. Two months ago with Seeing everything in front of you. And maybe I don't know, looking in the mirror. I think what you're inviting myself in KP and anybody else to do I'm sorry. Can you repeat the first part of the question? I'm wondering, too. Are you following through in your own world, Terry with the invitation that you just put out there like are you doing anything differently yourself Outside of you know, you're obviously not going to be changing names of sports teams and you're not going to be the I'm assuming you're not out tearing down statues in there. So are you doing anything different in your world, too? Bring home what? What the point you're making because I think that's that's the That's the invitation. All of us right now, if you care about what's going on right now, Like what are you going personally do different. Well, I'm not sure how much you know I'm a white guy on the north side. I'm not sure how much actual power or influence I have. But I have tried to look at some of the actual, you know, day to day kind of issues facing particularly African American community. I don't know any native Americans. But I'm trying to take a more charitable approach to the issues that they're facing. But the same time looking for some accountability from You know, certain groups of people is if we all have to do better than we all have to do better. But I don't always hear was specifically what each group has to do better. So to answer your question common. It's a fair one. I personally probably have not been on that much because I get in my view. I'm not sure how much Control. An old white guy on the north side of Chicago has on in terms of the impact on the lives of Let's just say African Americans don't know any native Americans, but yeah, I haven't thought of it that way. And that's that's a very valid questions. Yeah, I just look, I don't have any. I don't have the answers. You're either, Terry. I'm tryingto, you know, just have a conversation with you and whatnot. But ah I think you know for somebody in your seat, which is a very similar seat to a lot of us. I think the conversation George is having on people that look like you can be a little bit more, you know? Different. Let's put it that way You could. There could be AH, looking in the mirror at whatever without any judgment, either. If that makes sense, Like just just acknowledging what's been, that's what I'm inviting myself to, at least if if that makes sense. Right? That's that's that's fair time. But would you not agree that at some point like I think when your caller's a couple little while ago the woman kind of Eddie from levity is kind of like, you know, where does that end? And she was making jokes about the Bears and the Cubs, And obviously, that's not gonna go anywhere out. At what point can we say? We're not really fixing anything We're waging ourselves, and that's really not accompany much and I don't know where it ends. Terry. Well, I would say this, Terry, that look, the You're bringing up some good points, and it's a great conversation to have..

I ascend verses Reggie brown of the one hundred gold this was Dave and Reggie two guys who have grown up who spent their entire leverage or to Chicago for a while but both live in the city of Milwaukee we're both brewer fans we have a lot of common qualities yes this issue is one that we apparently can't be any more divided than we are when you present an alternative point of view and on social media you're not gonna win an argument on Twitter my god don't even try what's the point the but let me read you talking who don't know each other like I said we passed each other by the hallway Hey good game last night yup we seated in the kitchen that's the extent that Reggie brown and I know each other we had here for the last forty five minutes we've talked about Colin Capra Nick George Floyd Donald Trump Amy Cooper Dontrelle Hamilton do we change others mind no we didn't that's not the point the point is every time you have a realistic colder but a perspective that maybe an angle that they haven't considered when it comes to their belief system and that goes for both of us by the way you have a better understanding maybe just maybe you can kind of come around to the other point of view the fact that Justesen changes being fitted for the city of Milwaukee all over the country even though these are the same cities that have had no change politically for in some cases hundreds of years the city of Milwaukee has have had has had more socialist mayors then Republican mayors and the last one hundred years sure there's a couple of Republicans on the common council there's a couple of Republicans are alderman the city Milwaukee but it's been by and large won by Democrats for generations placing blame at the feet of Tom Barrett or John Norquist R. R. Jones or Alfonso Morales or Herald prior just the list goes on it's stating facts thanks for all we know in the suburbs are being presented to the inner city or the African American community so I have a conversation that's not political that's not there to win the debate I'm running way late I need to get a break otherwise poor Paul's gonna be here till well past happy hour you could use a beer right now could you check maybe just maybe you can turn to call Tony reverse turn that dial just a little bit not gonna changes mind it's not my job so what I'm doing I presenting an alternative the point of view that maybe just maybe hasn't been heard before and the same goes for those in the audience who maybe haven't heard Reggie's point of view racism exists my friends it does it exists in the African American community it is six in the Hispanic community and yes even exists in the white community it exists yet to be clear I believe it's nowhere near on the level that a lot of those the African American community are are saying but why didn't calling them I'm not allowed to have it because I have white privilege I would walk in their shoes so what I accomplished nothing but again by presenting a different lens a different focus in using facts to back that up you can plant those seeds in the ground yeah I can build it right away keep watering it watered it put a little fertilizer on there take care of it sooner or later that search to grow and maybe just maybe we can all use the same table the politicians are going to get the job done they've had their chance you want change start the.

The Big PhD Pause - postgraduate students, COVID-19, and the next brain drain

"Across Australia graduate students are always on taught deadlines to deliver a major work of original research. But now they're all important. Experiments are suspended or hanging on a precipice locked out of their labs or unable to travel to their field research sites. Many of lost the part-time jobs that pay rent or feed their families and some now also wondering what the future is for jobs in science in a post pandemic world. Could this pandemic trigger a as next GEN? Brian drying something that people don't realize about a PhD is that it's very isolating. You're like your. I'm in an office with other people for sure but we're all working on very different things and very niche things. Yeah it's really hard to to not feel learn in this when you've got that initial stress the initial problems that come with doing a PhD and then you wack pandemic on top of this is really Problematic for most of us being in a PhD being so isolated in this line of research. Which is why we get into it. We want to be independent research. Is We want we? It's our own body of work you know it's professional but it's personal and emotional. It's this thing that you divide basically three or more years of your life to and the idea of more isolation. I wasn't immediately helming but as as the month of gone on it's been it's been quite difficult. Scientists get this ID. We have the stereotype of being quite stoic and emotionally removed. It comes from the idea that we the work that we do is at. Its core unbiased survey of the world around us. Become at anything bias. What you're observing. What you're experimenting on So in creating a dialogue around it being okay to tell people what. You're feeling personally without letting gory. This old preconceived notion that talk about your feelings as a scientist today passionate young scientists open up it is a well established fact that went into PhD Students. Experience distress and one in three are at risk of a common psychiatric disorder. The focus the hours a PhD demands a damn hard at the based times. But how are post Grad students holding up in this pandemic and what Judy of k? Do strutting universities and the Australian government have to support them.

They're doing pay is not like an Undergrad degree. It's MOLUCCA A job. It's the crucial foundation for your career. In Science. In fact it's the stage when many Nobel Prize winners of done some of their k. Work but this pandemic is already forcing Grad students to make really tough urgent choices. The thumbs students have already withdrawn and as a result some international students have already gone back. Herm other students Yet is T-o-n how long this situation will continue. We have a situation now. graduate Looking at what's enough or day. Students circumstances are so different depending on the project. They're doing what they're up to in the three and a half years I've got to finish. Universities are really going to need to respond to this crisis case by case Taylor roads and I'm a third year each student at Latrobe University. And I'm doing my PhD. In a lab that focuses on Christie says over blindness which is a neglected tropical disease caused by a worm. Basically this illness is found in sub Saharan Africa and it can lead to blindness in its worst kind of bombs. Epilepsy developmental delays. It's really a bad thing to how high low is genetically analyzing samples of the parasitic worm. Take him from African communities to understand its evolution and spray it we found the transmission radius is actually a lot larger than what the W. H. Pat originally hypothesized answer. L. Analysis is kind of informing the carrying out of Mass Drug Administration throughout Africa and all these areas to actually eradicate the worm or even control it. What is this pandemic donning? In terms of what you can and can't do. Now I would have been sequencing more ones to get at bigger sample size for some of the analysis. I want to publish at least in the state of Victoria we on able to go into a facility and US out lab facilities. My University universities very strict on this. Or you have to prove that the work you're doing is absolutely essential. Anton sensitive in my work doesn't come under the umbrella. Sir. I'm not able to access the lab and I'm not able to access my computer in the office but I have my laptop at home with me so I'm able to do some work on that right now.

Census Bureau: No Middle Eastern Or North African Check Box

"Here in this country the twenty twenty census is rolling out nationwide this week now for decades the U. S. government has categorized people with roots in the Middle East or in North Africa as white despite an ongoing push from some advocates that is not changing for this year's census we're bringing you an updated report about the controversial decision first may two years ago here's NPR's Hansi lo one this scene kabbadi left Yemen as a young girl with her family seventeen years ago and after they settled in New York City she noticed that when you fill out an official form here in the U. S. they're always seem to be a question about race and ethnicity everywhere you can see when you go to a doctor will schools you always get this option and but he said she wasn't sure which check boxes for her honestly it was hard for me to pick I was like oh my god what should I push I put Asian or the other about he says because Yemen is on the continent of Asia she settled on Asian and when she can on form she writes in Arab but she says on the twenty twenty senses she would have like to mark a box for middle eastern or north African it should be there because they had many nationalities so why is not there is unbelievable in twenty eighteen the U. S. census bureau decided against adding a middle eastern or north African category now because officials said they need to do more research that disappointed Mohammed Barakat he works at the Arab American family support center based in Brooklyn every member is grappling with the race question as a first grader my parents came from Palestine I didn't really know English and so whenever there is paperwork I had to do it and on one of those forms I remember seeing white and then in parentheses anyone from the Middle East or North Africa which are the regions along with Europe that the U. S. government defines as white the better catch was perplexed he went to school in acid teacher if you could answer Asian is like well if you want to put a single had reading you should polite and so I went around asking other teachers and they all set your white your what I like but look at me that I can't says he doesn't look white and he's culturally not white but sometimes he marks white if he sees the Middle East and North Africa listed next to it or he looks for a box for others so we can write in Arab this makeshift way of answering surveys means that information about people with roots in the Middle East or North Africa is often hidden within data about other groups the fight right now is to say the category should be there because it will arrive at a better account Maya berry is the executive director of the Arab American institute which is trying to get a category added to the twenty thirty census form it's an issue that touches on a sensitive topic especially after president trump's travel bans against countries such as Iran Libya Syria and Yemen federal law prohibits the census bureau from releasing census responses identifying individuals for seventy two years but many in the middle eastern or north African communities in the U. S. worry about giving the federal government more personal information that's the burden that our communities had to they're trying to make a determination about do you advocate for the inclusion of a category or not Terry says getting a middle eastern or north African check box on the

"That was quite fascinated. And I thought it was interesting that Bernie Sanders decided to mention that, when discussing education, which, of course, is why he is doing fairly well, with the African American community. Although the polling data isn't out quite yet to see exactly how well he is doing. But of course in two thousand sixteen we do have the data and he did do better with the African American community than Hillary Clinton. Did you know that, that, that is one of the reasons perhaps that he did so, well, so this is what Bernie Sanders says? He said he will build on the strength in diversity act to increase, not cut federal funding for community driven strategies to desegregate schools. He says he will triple title one funding to ensure at risk schools. Get the funding they need and end funding penalties for schools that attempt to desegregate execute desegregation orders and appoint federal judges who will enforce. The nineteen sixty four Civil Rights Act in school systems address, disciplinary practices in schools, that disproportionately affect black children, now, that is also a really interesting sad phenomenon in this country, specifically when it comes to how African American black children are treated. They're kicked out and a much how higher rate, they aren't giving nearly as many chances police are called much more often. And I just know this personally when I was growing up I was horrible as opposed to now him so good. But we used to just do traditional, you know, we used to do traditional children, childhood shenanigans, you know, my buddies role kicked out after nine eleven not we weren't doing acts of terrorism. Okay. After four twenty April four twenty nine hundred ninety nine nine eleven Columbine are fused in my head. I know but it's like my twelve Saudi friend kicked, honestly. After nine eleven. I probably would have lost him friends to the way that we raged against the government in high school and in college and today. But after Columbine lost a lot of friends to, you know, to the different to the changing of the moods. We'll, we'll call it a change of mood when it comes to accept in more wild behavior. So I know for a fact that if I was not white, if I wasn't at a Catholic school, my parents were literally paying double because we weren't Catholic. Right. And we did not have a lot of money. So it was a hell of an expenditure. I know for a fact that would have been kicked out. Yeah. If I was in a public school in Detroit, or something like that, the things that we used to do you know, you can get away with certain things that you couldn't necessarily get away with if you were a more if you were a part of more of a marginalized groups. So I do think that, that is something that has to be taken into account. How do people act or what are the ramifications for actions depending? On the race of the person who committed those actions and obviously, in a perfect world we would say everything should be equal across the board. But we know for a fact specifically, I learned when I was running for office here in Brooklyn, New York. And that documentary is going to be coming out here, some time in the real near near future. But I was speaking do a lot of parents, some teachers and they did express concerns over basically. I don't want. It's an elevator. It's a it's just a through system to the prison says conveyor belt, conveyor belt. Sure, we'll call it a conveyor belt from the school the classroom to the jail cell. It is just a thing that happens on a regular basis, because these kids get caught up doing just normal kid stuff. Maybe smoking a little weed. Maybe they're drinking a little bit. Maybe they get into a skirmish or to something like that will happen every now and again, next thing, you know, the police are called, they're being charged with misdemeanors felonies, so on and so forth, they get sent over to Rikers and your life is taking your life can get out of control very fast. If you're at a formative age, and you get sent over to a place like Rikers island, I don't know of anyone could ever recover. Once you see that side of humanity, the social workers, that work at Rikers island are just traumatize..

You know, we grew up with that in our house did, and but then it's like he keeping us not to say, of course, informed. He would tell us about those things. But that whole going marches and stuff we thought that risk that that guy. Did he say like, you know, this is what's happening? This is what we are living with and living in and there. There's no end in sight per se, and it's it's nice to be aware. But I'm trying to get you the fuck outta here. Yes. It's the current climate, man. Yeah. But I I think it's it was sort of always like that. I imagine that there were sort of of your father's generation. Maybe a little more unity. I don't know. You know, I'm projecting know dumb white guy seems like that that there is a lot of organized resistance within the community. And I think that, you know, back then I maybe felt like I will more support. I would think from the the community at large. And now, it seems like everybody's doing their own thing. Let's think social media's changed the way we communicate. And and you way, more. Yeah. Because you know, you can send a tweet and reach fifty million people or whatever it is where then it's like, well, if I'm going out, and I'm putting my my body at you literally was different thing when you're a soldier on the front lines of protest versus like. Okay. Cool. I'm in this tower up here, and I send a tweet or I can right. I'm not. But at the same time, you're you're accessing way more people than you could so information is just in a different time. But it also enables people to draw lines from where they sit. Right. So I, you know, you can you can do whatever. But you can also like, well, I'm. Not going to buy that point of view because I got my own point of view over here. Neither my people in those that yet, and it still seems that you know, when people do hit the streets, and they stay in it that the spectacle of it of the resistance of the confrontation delivers the message in a visceral and human way that that does have an impact. But right, but the other side is sort of like look at him. They're fucking out of their mind. Right. So those people also have means of communication hundred. But I thought that was an amazing balance in the film because I didn't really know where was going to go because your brain when you watch moving beautifully shot. But you watch movie in story, you know, you kind of you know, you want to cop back to certain way, you know, you don't know what's going to happen with the baseball player. And it's why is this all going to turn to shit? How you know? How do we find hope through this without it being pithy, and and overwrought, but it was a thought he did a good balance and not everyone's good guy. But they're not. Terrible. Yeah. We're all have my men in that was that was the idea, you know, that we're all sort of have confronted of couldn't bad. You have all choices all have we as individuals have choices to make. And when you were coming up, you know, you and your brother, so you, you know, you this father who is was he strict he was pretty strict I mean like very strict, and he's a baseball fanatic. You have the father in the film speaks his kids. Like everything was a baseball analogy. Oh, yeah. So whether it was girls at you know, like baseball baseball baseball watch one hundred sixty two games a year diehard Mets fan. We'd watch reruns tape at night. I mean, if I struck out in a game looking like we'd have to come back home, take two hundred swings. Like, my dad was really, but he was teeny. Serena and Venus's father. He was raising major leaguers like in his mind, he was going to have a major league where were either of you gifted in that way?.

"Primaries and i was chasing the sanders and i'm new to politics and the reason why i started supporting senator sanders goes i voted twice in my life and i'm forty six and both town was with president obama activist bruce carter speaking last year in philadelphia and we got more on his role in the trump campaign from michael riley so mike at this week's magazine you have a fascinating look inside really two campaigns initially the bernie campaign and then the donald trump campaign tell us about bruce carter yeah i mean i was a african american businessman who gets very excited very early about bernie sanders and starts to do a lot of activists activism among the african american community to try and get them to come out to vote but as bernie's challenge hillary clinton fades he begins to to connect with the trump campaign in a series of sort of interesting ways and ends up going on the road and doing a lot of outreach for donald trump to the african american community now that wasn't an easy lift in two thousand sixteen but his story is really one in which as you pull back layers and layers tells an interesting tale about how the trump campaign worked he was basically as he describes it sort of recruited by breitbart reporter who at first feigned interested in interviewing him but then started talking to him about coming over to trump and and and how trump could really do a lot for urban communities he connects with steve bannon bannon who by this time is running trump's campaign coordinates with him on which states in which places to to really reach out to the african american community but there's a little bit of a twist because in their analysis it was great.

"The african american community did not have president obama come in that they were free to alienating summit a white votes will that come back to haunt them i think it will show donald trump recorded a robocall and republicans seized on a date waited it they promoted it it was on social media iraq obama recorded a it instructing alabama to reject way more he was very adamant with the strong support of call for doug jones the democratic opponent in the campaign actually half a question and as a funding night they were still questioning whether to use the robocall they've fence employed it but this is not a question i think it's one of the problems democrats have is trying to walk the middle of the road and it's this just this illusion that you're going to somehow attract trump supporters to your party if you don't go all the way laugh you and i have talked about this rival white became the new black after the election and everybody started trying to walk the middle of the road and a piece of the white working class even in the south this is a problem now i will say they've they've talked with some of the black voters if some of the man on the street interviews and some african americans in alabama did not even know that it's been at race was happening though them big challenge that shows that there's been really lacklustre effort to reach out to that community and shame on democrats were allowing that to happen i will say though i think that's jones's caught a bit off guard in a democrat hasn't been elected in that state for decades gauge though i think doug jones may have done this effort for good showing and then when the re the accusations of pedophilia came up he realize he was in play and had a chance so i think that um the democrats of alabama bharti sit in gate everybody all communities a day late and a dollar short no during as we look at these are do we think that all you and others there are saying that.
