"In this time, he's definitely on the short list. Just like colleague Simon, this is her first nomination. What you thought? I have no idea how that could be positive. Yeah, yeah, it's amazing, right? Yeah. Beck, it's his first. And I believe, who else, Eminem it says first, nomination, Dolly Parton. It's her first nomination. So they must have been, they must have broke out. We fucked up list. We fucked up list. And they put them all in one category. Now do they have a minimum amount of people or maximum amount of people that they can induct at one time? No, I don't think there's any set number. I don't think there's any set number. Right. So I mean, we could go right into that. I think Lionel Richie should get in. Carly Simon should get in. If again, not this time next time. Yeah. You know what? I don't think colleague Simon has had, I don't think she only has like 9.5 million album sales. Which is pretty interesting. Yeah, yeah. So I was able to think it's something earlier. Yeah, yeah, that's it. Where was it? I was looking at something earlier. And it showed her record sales. And she has, I don't know how many records, maybe. It's close to 20, maybe more than 20. And it showed every year it went down down, down, down, down, down. One album I think only sold like 15,000 copies, one of a recent albums. So. She's popular. She had some hits. But that might hurt her. Yeah, you know, maybe right. That might hurt her. So let me see. She was priest. Sella kruti. Fellow kuti. From Nigeria.

"Fam- what's up. This is part two of the two part episode enjoy. Yeah and the black woman. Bp thing they did after You know they already. They already Elizabeth warren tank. He was one game left in town. But i feel like he chose kamala harris but not because of them. I think it's because he asked up on the breakfast club with the With the blackjack thing really member. He was interviewing amy klobuchar and she had met with those a good chance. That was gonna be her. Do you think if he if he chose her he would have gotten elected. Greek question Yeah you know. I'm not sure. Because i mean even choosing kamla harris. He barely squeaked by. I mean i think covert did more to Beater on donald trump then Anything biden did because that was way too close Yeah it really was way too way too. Close so yeah. That's a question. I think. I think biden might won even charge but it wouldn't have been i think because they're anything in jar brought to the table. I think a lot of people. I think biden was almost incidental. I think a lot of people turned on trump for reasons that had to do with liking biden agree. Yeah we're talking about topics before we got before we came on one them was pan-africanism and that's one of the big debates that happens in the The aspirins basis the pan-africanism thing. And i and i wanted to know what your thoughts about Pan-arab is interesting. I have put this question to parts. pan-africanism and pan africanus. What are your what are your takes on both. Because i i like pan. African is them. I do think some pan-african this can be pretty annoying. So i'm gonna ask both why japan about pan-africanism as philosophy and then african pan-africanism at penn africanus in practice in reality. So let me start off by saying in no way. Am i hanging on. The leaders are past. I understand what they were working with. And what they were dealing with and understand that pan-africanism at a certain point was a great benefit to to what our community needed as far as like solidarity around an idea grasping for an identity. All of that stuff. But the problem. I have with the ideology is not necessarily you know what it says on paper. Because you know is cool. The problem is that it doesn't really have a clear goal. it becomes like a thing where you know. We're at a point. Centuries after this concept was created. We gotta look at the results in. What exactly pan-africanism is like what what exactly it means for us right now in in twenty twenty one and it is just something that people use our guest like a pep rally as something to to you know something to get motivated around as far as like you know feel good energy but it's not actually translate into any Politics of substance. And then if i were to talk about pan africanist oh my god these these people these people are trip like. It's for them. It is a religion and you can't talk about of it no matter how you know you explain it logically A lot of our you know loose with the truth But don't necessarily hate these people in don't necessarily hate what they're trying to achieve. I think it's a beautiful thing. I just don't see how it could be done practically. Yeah i agree with that. Like i like reading pan african literature and this people in the pan african space. Like i'm really talking to. When i enjoy even having him on on the show like i like what a lot of literature has to say especially if you want to find out about How to premacy has affected the ash relic very I'm not sure if walter rodney considers himself considered himself passed a pan. Pan-africanist a lotta pan-africanist read him and stuff that He says is like an amazing Documentation of you know how. Africa ended up where it is same. Same goes for When thomas sankara and stuff like that but a lot of actual pen africans. I think don't really understand how the situation the ground has changed all a lot of the people in africa who were down with pan-african pan-africanism and were taking concrete steps to make it happen. A lot of them got taken out the paint by the cia or whatever and puppet people have come into power over there and the class. That's in charge in a lot of these. African countries are the people who were hostile to the people were afforded pan-africanism. And i always kind of tried to sell them like look i get. These ideas are very good to happen. But you're going to have to convince people here that the rest of the the espera is serious about pan-africanism as you are. And i just don't see evidence on on the ground that it's that it's happening and then a lot of them will get mad when you say that and i'm like you know instead of getting i think wasted about it being a religion very appropriate because a lot of people who believe in things as article of faith when the worst is you could tell them is like you know. Show me proof. This is real because it's article of faith. you're not supposed to Do that so yeah. I was so pan-africanist myself. I'm like look you can't just have and like the uk and you know whatever being the only people into pan african ism and everyone else who's just trying to get jobs and you know. Do do whatever it's gotta you know. So so yeah. That's i mean. Some people are pointing to be some stuff in ghana and repatriation. The.

"This is useful question because people are confused about the to some people think that settlers is just a fancy way of saying white people. And then it's all about just racism anyway. Racism as we know it and settlers and both had their origins in capitalist colonialism and a related but quite distinct cell colonial society started as an invasion and occupation forces for western capitalism social garrisons usually in the third world is worse than capitalism expanded of europe in into the americas africa asia racism as we experienced it today didn't exist before capitalism which is why many revolutionary see rooting out the one as required rooting out the other two europeans. Before modern capitalism the most important races were what we would call nations indeed until well into the twentieth century. It was widely assumed by europeans that even different european nationalities will biologically different and had different mental abilities and propensities sloughs with thought to be biologically different from nordics and jews thoughts being exotic race all by themselves pre-capitalist and even early capitalist europe. Were a lot different from our racial stereotypes. It wasn't that oppression and bigotry didn't exist obviously for example. There's a long tradition of anti semitic and anti roman persecution in christendom but the whole context of race was unlike what we usually think of. Its tonnage to learn that an eighteen in early eighteenth century germany leading philosopher. Anton wilhelm ammo. Who should at the university of holly and the university of gino is a black german born in africa. He also signed his name in latin as ammo guinea africanist ammo the african well that russia's greatest poet the nineteenth century aristide credit. Pushkin was black by american standards and nobody cared and in the time of marks and balcony major leader of early german radical unionism was also very visibly black and his african heritage. It expected well. What we've been saying all along is that race in modern capitalism was originally change from an undefined difference into skies for clause capitalism after all always prefers to resort your class differences in drag of some kind all.

"He can can be a socialist pan. Africanist in the nationalists are. That's a quote and this idea yet. Indian he also has his other he talks about how in a notable were all for african world revolution. How the chinese could take that and you had the light chime beheaded. The chinese is it and we would have to ask. It is after these things. And so i'm i'm with you. I'm with dr. i get that. I think we can i even if you have to because what happens on get there. According to what happens is this so what happens is that sometimes we give what my jack. No bobble koby cambon. He said that we give we talk. Empiricism versus by africans dance spirits water. And he said he gives the european too much credit and by that he was trying to say. There's no way that these africans insist on the planet earth for this whole long time right and they want a bill without being empirical. Y- you you have to be able to measure observed that you do that to survive in grossing means. He's in the week we will give the europeans much credit. You're saying that that solely ears art. I stayed at the say that that the same thing with the with the with the socialism. Always that if we look at those principles Benign eric that those press was already existed in africa right so as not as it marks kane and he bought these things angles no looking at. He might applied to a particular time in history of a secular like post modern the modern time but those principles themselves already existed. So i think that what you think you can blend those blend those together and especially when we talk about being prescriptive 'cause it gives you put up single type of critique of class of power dynamics but with bobby right we have in bobby bobby right race race man breaks i right so his whole his his i think he was. He was leery of these type of any type type of some of these other ideologies because he thought it moves you away from looking at rates it would it. Would it would make that race would be the defining their that impacts your quality of life not the class and then we. We can disagree with these votes. But i think we're bobby right. That was his issue that it was race. I in in the mood you away from putting race at the center than that's gonna be problematic whereas dr clark is saying that now race can still be there all this..

"That's correct right. I think that we do. We have conversations all the time. But we don't necessarily you. We don't have conversations in a way in. Maybe the you know academic language or whatever so. I think that we do have a class. A latent class analysis. But we don't necessarily have class consciousness or class solidarity in particular ways. But certainly i think there is a way in which especially like ninety sitcoms we would see in it and we see even in politics and stuff we see you know black people black people doing well as an objective in. Don't really critically interrogate with actually What's actually going on and how that might relate or not relate to what's happening for example the nineteen eighties is. this is reaganomics. This is the rollback of the welfare state. This is win. The gains that were made in the sixties and seventies in in The standard of living for black folks is being rolled back missing contradistinction to the rise of like a different world on the show right or the cosby show or these other shows that are showing affluent orwell out black folks so there's just a disjuncture between what's being represented almond what's actually happening on the ground. I think also what is happening is. It's not just a classes and being discussed in those old shows. I think to a degree class is discussed. Sometimes but even when it is there's no addressing of the macro. So i think they had things like good times or other things where Black people were poor and suffering but it was kind of does not a real lens given as to why are they poor and suffering. Is this a kind of general malays and oppression. Yeah it's kind of a given and also you get a sense. Sometimes there's a general thing out. There called racism and it's hanging in the air and it's adding extra level to the poverty. But you don't really get an idea of really. How does it really work. How is it making people poor or keeping them poor of every now and then there's a micro aggression or something or a job you don't get you know but there's not a real big big picture class analysis or or consciousness almost like it's still individualistic. Like you know what i mean like. How those sort of american individualistic perspective is about you pulling yourself up. Sort of perspective So yeah that's a really good point. What i think that we need to distinguish between the descriptive and analytical. Right to describe something different than to analyze something so what you're talking about is like the impoverishment is being represented right the working class nature is being represented. But it's not there's no so what is the what but not the so. What and this is the analysis in so these shows are not providing as you're saying like a way to understand why how these things came to be why it is that you know how these families are poor living in high rises or whatever or conversely the relationship between the families that are well off affluent the bosses in the managers in those who Who are their workers in. These are in all black people right so there's all of these different types of of relationships that we see in different shows for example. Like you know family matters or martin or whatever and it's not even just t television shows there is there's also music at and other forms of representation and think of broader question is like to what end to. What end are we having these. Forms of entertainment Are they to reproduce propaganda. Like as you were saying that if you just work hard enough if you pull yourself up by your bootstraps then you'll make it or is it are these shows shining us actual spotlight on. Us society that day no matter you know. Many many people work very hard right. Many people work hard their whole lives. And that's not why some people are rich is some people are poor. The impoverishment and the ghettoisation and the oppression of black folks is not a sort of moral or ethical failure but when we only see drug dealer or drug addicts and drug dealers representative when we only see you know. Gangster is an all these things represented than we come to understand that that is the reason why black people are. Poor and press is because of their moral and ethical failures become because of their culture of poverty. Because they're they're underclass moore's as opposed to looking at the broader structures. I'm old enough to remember the original discourse around the cosby show and sutton very interesting was that was a kind of straw man that used to be Loud that people complain about the cosby show. Where and this drama and went across liberal in conservative circles. I think it was just basically Any kind of black excellence of the era type of circles. We kind of say. Oh you're so defeat is that you don't believe Wealthy black people exists or your so you so internalize like you know. Idea of giving up or or idea of white supremacy that you Feel like people back would be successful as Not accurate and my family is has black doctors or a problem with your imagination or your acceptance of self defeat like you know you're you're not you're not accepting that people can win but what the actual articles were saying was that it wasn't property contextualising Black wealth like the idea like it was kind of implicitly saying that Blackwood is just there for the taking. And if you don't take it because you're not following the respectable the of the Of the cosby. There was no like you said contextualising of Why are they allowed to be successful while other black people who might work hard or wants to do things don't make it like what is the context of their success. And how does it relate to back people and that was like the real criticism of the of the of the time that It was kind of acting like the struggle was over. We made it to the mountain top We one thing was a very popular. Civil rights boomer generation narrative that we got everything the white man that we asked for. And now it's on us to take what You know they lived up to their end of the bargains up to us to take take advantage. I think it's very interesting that even the people who are kind of defending the cosby show really properly properly phrased there. Critics are criticism to begin with a lot of it was very strong oriented. I think i think the other thing to understand is like the rise of that sort of liberal liberal or Even some of that is a little bit particular types of black nationalist. Conservative bike massimo's discourse. A lot of that arose at a moment. Win the laugh right. The black left and black internationalist forces were extremely beleaguered right. So in quantel prime the nineteen sixties before that we had rabbit anti-communism Back created the conditions. In fact for Help grow and the way that the black radical leftist socialist internationalist pan-africanist forces were to extreme violence and repression. Mrs not to say that. They were disciplined out entirely. Because we still have where example the anti-apartheid movement. That's that is booming in the nineteen eighties without a lot of those of races. That were arguing for that. Had a strong class analysis and that were very very critical of the black ruling elite and warned in fact against the ways in which the black elected officials b. e. o.'s. Right the black political class. might be co opted into the system in ways that was not beneficial to the overwhelming majority of worke oppressed import people. Those were the people who are thrown in jail. Who were deport deported. were murdered. Who were exiled. Or who are otherwise marginalize up in so what one out in what was funded in what was pushed. Forth is the very narratives that you're talking about right in. So we also need to understand the role of the disciplining and repression of black radicalism on the one hand. Also the really intentional. And and strong cooperation of other four of other black forces that then leads to the rise of these narratives of all these the sort of very americanised narratives of you know work car. Pull your pants up You know those those sorts of things that are conveyed through particular types of of Sitcoms.

"Gross. There is no way to understand the history struggle and debate over race and democracy in contemporary America without understanding Malcolm X and Martin Luther King's relationship to each other, their own era and most critically, to our time. That's what my guest Pernille Joseph Rights. He's the author of the recently published book, The Sword and The Shield, the Revolutionary lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. Joseph says that the mythology surrounding their legacies typically portrays King as the nonviolent insider, while Malcolm is characterized as a by any means necessary political renegade. It's King's. I have a dream versus Malcolm's the ballot or the bullet. Joseph's book braids their lives together, looking at how the past they took in their fights against white supremacy and for racial justice, diverged and converged. Malcolm X, was assassinated in 1965. King was assassinated three years later. O'Neill. Joseph is the founding director of the LBJ School's Center for the Study of Race and Democracy at the University of Texas Austin. Before that, he founded the Tufts University Center for the Study of Race and Democracy. His previous books include Stokely, a biography of Stokely Carmichael, who became qualm a tour and popularized the term black power and was a leader of that movement. And the book Dark days Bright nights from black power to Barack Obama. O'Neill, Joseph, Welcome to fresh air. Why did you want to braid together the lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King. Well, I've always been fascinated by Malcolm X and Dr King and the more I did research into the black power movement, and I wrote several books about black power and civil rights. The more I was both interested in them and and dissatisfied in how they're usually portrayed both in books and in popular culture. You both fought for racial equality, But they have different visions of the world They wanted to see. Well, I think they have convergent visions, but they have different strategies on how to get there. So Malcolm X is really scarred by racial trauma at a very early age. King, in contrast, has a very gilded childhood, and he's the son of upper middle class African American family, prosperous family. That runs one of the most important churches in black Atlanta Ebeneezer Baptist Church, So Malcolm and Martin are shaped by both the historical circumstances. That that Presented to them but also by their own personal histories. So they both want these goals of human rights and human freedom and human dignity. But they're goingto have different strategies and tactics, especially initially on how to achieve that goal. Compare their initial tactics. When we think about Malcolm X, But Malcolm X is the most important black working class hero and leader, an activist of the 20th century and by that I mean that Malcolm is coming from the lower frequencies of the black community. He's born in Omaha, Nebraska in 1925. His mother and father, political activist followers of Marcus Garvey, the Universal Negro Improvement Association. They're black nationalists and Pan Africanist who believe in radical political self determination. And Malcolm's father is going to be killed by white supremacists in 1931 in Lansing, Michigan. His mother is going to be placed in a psychiatric facility for most of his adult life. He's a foster child for several years, and then he lives with his older sister, starting at the age of 15 in Roxbury, Massachusetts. And really over the next 56 years, he's going to be engaged in both working menial jobs and participating in the underground economy, which means extra legal or criminal activity. And in prison. He sentenced to 11 years in prison. He's going to serve 76 months between 1946 in 1952 Hey, has an epiphany. He comes to believe in the Muslim religion as articulated by the nation of Islam, which is really a religious Slash black nationalist group That's coming out of the Garvey tradition of the 19 teens in 19 twenties, and he comes to believe that Elijah Mohammed who's the former Elijah Poole from Georgia. Is actually the honorable Elijah Mohammed, who's the messenger of Allah himself. So Malcolm is goingto transform himself in prison by 1948 49 50 And really become somebody who imbibes black history. He imbibes religious history. But he comes to have his own critique of both structural racism but white supremacy, and he's going to argue that what black people need Is political liberation that they craft themselves. So he comes to believe that the reason why black people are marginalized in the United States is because they have imbibed Western traditions. Christianity, and they refused to look for the last place that they would ever look for their own liberation is within that black people don't understand their identity. They think of themselves as Negro and not his black. They don't have a love or appreciation of African history. And so what Malcolm is going to do has become really this political leader who critiques white supremacy and also argues that black people should pursue dignity in their own history, their own culture, their own values. And that leads to a pretty separatist vision. Yeah, And you know what's interesting? This idea of separatism is really interesting. The deeper I investigated Malcolm X, the more I understood what he meant and with the nation of Islam that bi racial separatism It wasn't segregation. It wasn't segregation. It was separatism, they argued. And Malcolm does this in a Siri's of debates against fired Rustin against Jim Farmer against James Baldwin. Lewis Lomax. He says that racial separatism Is required because White people do not want black people to be citizens and have dignity. And if they did, you wouldn't have to protest and experience police violence and police brutality. Small Children trying to integrate little rock high school. Young people trying to integrate lunch counters and they're arrested and brutalized. Sometimes people were killed, of course. So what's interesting about this idea? Separatism? Malcolm argues. Separatism is black people having enough self love. And enough confidence in themselves to organize and build parallel institutions because America was so infected with the disease of racism they could never racially integrated into American democracy. Marley, The King and Malcolm X initially disagreed on the role of violence and Nonviolence. King, of course, was him America's leading advocate of nonviolent civil disobedience. How would you describe Malcolm X is vision when he says, by any means necessary. Well, Malcolm is making the argument that one black people have the right to self defense. On DH to defend themselves against police brutality. It's really striking when you follow Malcolm X in the 19 fifties and sixties, the number of quarter parents is he's making. Whether it's in Buffalo, New York or Los Angeles or Rochester, New York were members of the nation of Islam have been brutalized at times killed by police violence, So Malcolm is arguing that one black people have a right to defend themselves..

It's complicated: Zimbabweans see Mugabe's legacy as mixed

"Former president of zimbabwe robert mugabe has died at the age of ninety five. He was is a schoolteacher turned guerrilla fighter who helped to topple white rule in zimbabwe. Only to then lead the country to the brink of economic ruin his successor president emerson managua said in a message on twitter quote commander mugabe was an icon of liberation a pan africanist who dedicated his life to the emancipation and empowerment norman of his people his contribution to the history of our nation will never be forgotten our deputy africa bureau chief gabrielle steinhaeuser is in capetown so gabrielle. Tell me a bit more about how mr mugabe ended up in power so mugabe came to power in nineteen eighty initially as prime minister of zimbabwe <hes> having sort of liberated his country from the british and and and also white minority government that followed and in his his first few years he really kept warm relations with his predecessor they would regularly have t- you know and he i think he was was honored by the british and he will succeed as this and of enlightenment need a he was a schoolteacher. You know he was educated. He we build a very strong education system zimbabwe but you right that the way he'll be remembered is a bit more complicated. I think it's a bit of a complicated legacy. I would say for most imbaba winds. They will remember him for the brutality and economic hardship of his final decades in power where the economy really spiraled and off any kind of opposition was brutally repressed but then you know you have other leaders in africa who really especially here in south africa really remember him for the support he gave them in their old liberation struggle so we had a very sort of hard shelled message from the ruling party the african national congress in south africa so the lauding him for his contribution to bringing the an and to apartheid and how is zimbabwe doing now. It's actually a really kind of sad adds to that because after he finally resigned resigned than i was in harare you know tens of thousands of people just storming the streets in celebration and there was so much optimism not only among zimbabweans but also among western governments who were ready and companies who are keen to engage in an invest. I think what we've seen over the last nearly two in years. There's a lot of that optimism plate fade away so it's hard to kind of look at mugabe's staff this this point to to a story of decline because it seems like the decline unfortunately continues

Like this before we eat Willy's point this way, when we pray and there's certain ways in which Slavic practices are just woven into the fabric of their family life. And so this does connect to the question. You asked me insofar as for many in leadership positions people who are working in the Pan Africanist movement people like Edward Wilmot, blaming who was a leading theorist and theologian of the time for saying that Islam is a more natural religion for African Americans. This is a religion, which our ancestors practiced. This is a religion that has been linked to you know, what was at the time called the darker peoples of the world to these are the kind of discourses that are circulating within places like Harlem in Chicago right already in the political discourses that are going on in the paper.

So there's already kind of idea that Islam is a religion that is more amenable to adapting and black liberation or that that can aid in the project of black liberation. So I think that's a huge part of it. You know, why why did so many African Americans Gilbert to a slum that's kind of the larger meta explanation that it's already in the consciousness that Islam is a black religion is something that's going to help black communities thrive. It's going to restore back black families. And it's good to, you know, help women find their place, you know, within the family, and and be elevated to those positions of respect that they so deserve as so that's one big thing. The other thing I think we already touched upon the fact that within the the minute show of daily life. A people gravitate towards those organizations in which they feel safe in which they feel welcomed in which they feel at home, and in many of the cases, the Muslim organization so groups like the more science temple dot com. The movement in his Lomb, the nation of Islam. These were groups that were actively seeking working class African Americans in many cases who are welcoming to them, and we're teaching them offering them teachings which were saying you are not less than human you are descended from in the case of the more science temple your descended from kings. And queens, you are part of, you know, a global lineage of people you are not just black in America. Right. It it seemed like an anecdote to racism. Yeah. And certainly Christianity at the time was not saying that right? No. I mean, so they're what I mean. I. The black church was very strong and many of these places, right? Islam was explicitly saying we are all brothers and sisters in a slum. You are not less. Nobody is less than another person. Right. So that's in the case of some iterating other ones like the nation of Islam, right? Are saying the black man is superior. To to the white man, right? We are the ones who are morally and ethically. Superior right. And this is incredibly empowering to people who like you said move all the way, you know, migrate all the way from the south to go north to seek a better life and come north to find that there's still no jobs. They're living in terrible conditions. Right. And so when you hear this message that explains so much of the degradation in the everyday horror that you're living your life. It's so powerful. Right. It's so powerful to hear that. No, you are morally superior and this religion confirms it. I mean, I can imagine that it would have been incredibly. Empowering to hear that an incredibly desirable to wanna be a part of that. Yeah. I mean, I think that, you know, people I think often assume that you know, that every it was hard for everyone back, then it was hard for African-Americans charged with black people after you know, slavery and then the early part of the twentieth century..
