"That's better help. H. e. l. p. dot com slash. Angry that is one of the things that i i really believe that Men struggle with. I think part of it has to do with society locker. Rooms the shame right because these aren't conversations that men have Programming from things like pornography all of that translating into relationships sex the bedroom all of that stuff. Another thing that men do is we compare ourselves to other men of course but also previous men that our partners dated right. And then we have that thing going on and One of my don't is to don't ask about your your partner sexual history you know. That's actually none of your business if your partner wants to share that with you great but most people can't handle that because once we britannic we can and then once we hear numbers or details we are suddenly comparing and then there's this weird competitive thing going on and it's a it's a total mind fog and it's a losing battle it brings out the worst brings out insecurities so i think real man are able to accept look at be honest with themselves where they're at what they're insecure about and they make an effort to not compare themselves their lives their bank accounts excetera their bodies their penises with other men. You know and. I think that it's difficult especially in the world that we live in think that it requires a lot of courage. I think that it takes time in. It's a practice. And i think it comes with age to it's much harder for twenty one year old right. 'cause i was twenty one wants to separate that right to cut that cord that ties your worth from the external or ability or cars or whatever it is i think as you get older and become more comfortable with yourself and who you are your value then it gets shifted where the you know the place your weight and what's important to you changes so it's less about your aesthetics It's more about character. You know and so i also think this is why a lot of women tend to date older guys I think that women turned the corner. And this generalization around twenty nine. You know thirty ish. And i think man start turning the corner Probably mid thirties. You know i'm not saying this for everyone. This is based on not only my story. But all the stories that i've heard and just kind of generalizing but i think around twenty nine women get very curious look inward What matters to them start shifting. They've had enough experiences in relationships and love and sex where they start to Make healthier choices. And i think men do that as well but i think men hit later like around thirty five ish mid thirties. You know and so i think this is why A lotta times women and updating Older men or men. They're like six seven eight years older than than themselves because emotionally. They're more on par and so they're will to to build something together in that way. Okay so guys. If you're listening to this stop comparing yourself to other men. Not just your pena's but every man has their own value and their own uniqueness In don't get caught up in the competitive race and it's very easy to because you put a lot of men together and suddenly it's a frat house or it's a locker room you know. I think healthy competition is great. Me and my a guy friends. We compete in a healthy way with fitness and working out all the time. But we don't let that define us right a- because we lose a workout. We don't think that that makes us less valuable or i mean. I don't know what i mean. I don't i especially now forty five.

"Be allowed to purchase firearms so these are good and through his recent two point three trillion dollar infrastructure proposal biden is making an additional five billion dollars in funding available to community violence prevention efforts. This is at the request of advocates are recent. Itt guests greg jackson junior fabulous and survivor of gun violence. Okay so this is personal but also national these actions while yes are modest and biden himself acknowledged that a lot more is calling on congress to pass an assault weapons ban and expand background checks. And let's talk about the gun lobby at said that i'd say it on the air in. Ra all that stuff that he said exactly so people. This is what democracy looks like. it doesn't look like just one vote. It looks like you've voicing your opinions throughout and engaging in democracy by also listening to itt and that leads us to the fact that we've also been tracking the latest on these voter suppression bills that are happening across the country in front of our eyes including the new voting law in georgia that we covered in our recent itt episodes so on tuesday atlanta mayor. Kisha lance bottoms issued an administrative order to counter the statewide restrictions. Boom take that and this was essentially to help every atlanta resident exercise their right to vote. So we're seeing local governments pushed back by the way happens to be that. She's one of the several black women who are leading important cities in the united states like atlanta and there is this local government pushback now so far kentucky i love this. I do love kentucky. It's the only state with a republican controlled legislature to actually pass a bipartisan bill to expand allow voting rights. Except you know there's always a twist of course because it's important to note that prior to the pandemic Kentucky actually had some of the strictest voting laws in the country so this is basically like ooh. We're trying to make up for a bunch abacha that we did. Yeah it was a lotta shits. Now we're gonna give you less yet. Yes so a lot. This week julia. So what are you thinking. It's just you know the biden orders. Oh by the way the same day this happened in customs and border patrol like announced that the most encounters since two thousand one at the southwest border have occurred. That was released on thursdays. Well so yes. I was like. Did anyone asked a question about that. To jen psaki and actually looked at the transcript. I didn't see a lot of like immigration. Talk you're seeing like the biden media cycle be. We're going to talk about this now so like we're to forget you know what i'm saying. I'm so glad you brought that up. Because itt latino usa the we do. We're not here for the osho up now with the live trucks and the thing and be there in front and then marino's alive. The children being held do and then disappear q. I mean yes put no and of course if it was up to me yet do surveys. Joe biden should be done at the border saying. Oh my gosh. I to the refugees. I love you and second to people who are coming because they actually are ready to start a new life for whatever the hell right because people want to move. Yeah he should say you are part of our economic boom. Come on let's go. Let's get to work and mighty. We've also been covering the wave of anti trans bills that have been introduced in legislatures. All across you know the states of america. What you last friday the fabulous jamila king and you know so great to hear jamila king so good. You talked about the bill in arkansas. That would prohibit doctors from giving trans-youth gender affirming care. I mean w t.f. Okay so that. Bill had passed both the state house and the senate but after organizing from local and national advocates governor. Ace hutchinson vetoed the bill on monday. Interesting but then the following day the republican controlled house and the senate in arkansas. They voted to override the veto. Oh making arkansas. The first state to deny healthcare to trans-youth in this way for five or okay. You know what. I'm sorry for the trans youth. Who are listening in arkansas. We'd love you. Yes and many of these bills specifically target trans athletes okay. So that's another thing that people need to know. So we're seeing the national collegiate athletic association of the ncaa student athletes and the women's national basketball association wnba coaches and athletes from that league pushing back and in december wnba's candace parker along with one of my favorite tennis players. Of all time. Billie jean king. I stopped her on. this street. Wants to know is like you're a god issues like and also one of my favorite soccer players of all time. Megan who kicks ass. They all joined more than one hundred seventy five athletes to file amicus briefs in support of a lawsuit against the lawn. Idaho that bans trans women from competing. In women's sports. Idaho was the first state to do so last year. That band so now at least two dozen states have proposed similar legislation. And it's interesting because this all reminds me of a recent episode of the trans lash. Podcast hosted by our incredible. Itt all star amara jones right and amara talked with cc. Telfer the first openly trans woman to win an ncaa title. So let's take a listen one insights. You have about the fact that this is as much about taking away our legitimacy as people as black people and then taking away our legitimacy as women because we stereotyped absolutely. I will be glad to speak on that. And thank you so much for vocalizing that and recognizing that all discrimination in hey is a. He plays a huge role in this situation. Because not only that. It's the black female like trains lives. That are mostly targeted to me. It seems like the only liser targeted especially when it comes to Gender in sports and also. Let's not forget that people in general competing in athletics was unfair to the world because of the their quote unquote reasons where bone mass height. Yep who came up with these rules white men. I know that you spoke to chris. Mosier today. He came to my school. And i was so glad that he brought up when he transition the privileged. I came to him being a white man. People are going out of their way to like. Greet him show him the utmost respect like all of that. When black women are transitioning they hate. They got a lot more discrimination. A lot less respect and all of that stuff and it's just sad. Because that's why i said that i'm such a naive little girl because i just expect the world to be just like me and wear their hearts and their shoulder. Because we're all going through the same things it would make so much sense for all of us to be on the same boat supporting each other and making the movement stronger. Yeah i mean just making the world stronger happier yeah. This is a better place when we are more inclusive always think of beneath the holidays. Yeah you know. The first indigenous president of mexico Supper take indian eighteen sixty five and he said elizabeth dole. The ritual is.

"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Elsa Chang and I'm Audie Cornish. This week, Sarah McBride was sworn into the Delaware State Senate, making her the highest ranking transgender politician in the country. Even as their profile rises in politics and on screen trans people continue to be the target of violence. The human rights campaign says. At least 44 transgender or non binary people were killed in the U. S last year, leading some to wonder does increase visibility really help to protect the lives of transgender people? Put that question to Morrow Bean. He's a professor at McAllister College in Minnesota and co host of the podcast transcripts. This sort of strategy of visibility like if we just have more trans people on TV. Folks recognize that? Not only is that not working, it's actually putting the most marginalized trans folks in more danger, right? So it might help me keep my job as a university professor. But it's not helping broke transference of color, and in fact, actually, it's making them more vulnerable. The police are more likely to identify them. But the journalist Tamara Jones, sees the issue of visibility through a different lens. I don't necessarily believe that visibility places somewhere risk. I believe that we're already at risk, and it's extreme. I think that the visibility over time in the right way will make us less that risk. I asked Jones to explain why she sees visibility as a good thing and specifically. Whether pop culture plays a special role in bringing about social change. Absolutely the reason why is because we're only 1% of the population, and that means that nine out of 10 people in United States say that they don't personally know someone who's trance. That means that the way that people can get to know us in a way that centers are humanity, which I believe lessens the likelihood of violence and discrimination and marginalization. Is through culture. I know from reading history that trans people were marginalized and brutalized and Killed before representation came to the fourth. What representation has made possible in the last year is that we had a presidential candidate. Commit to our equality. We've had a presidential candidate commit to lowering the murders of trans people, specifically black trans women, and we have many candidates do that, and that would not be possible without representation. I want to jump in here because you mentioned politics and there's been, you know, a slight increase in the number of trans elected officials in state legislatures rights with the state level. Is this sort of representation. Path to concrete policies that could stem violence against trans people. Or is it even fair for me to ask this question right to demand these politicians be the ones who be the source. Of policies or legislations to curb this problem. We know that the securing of equality in the United States is a combination of legal, cultural and social, which worked together to thin shift people's ability to be able to be human. And that is earning. What everyone else does too have the same jobs on and on, and I, therefore these politicians and the laws that they are advocating, for, or the bad laws that they're stopping. Happen. Are essential for our rights. Now. That doesn't mean that on Lee legal means are going to secure, actually quality. It's much larger than that. I think that one of the amazing things about being trans is that we get to see beyond binaries. Right. We get to go beyond false choices of black and white and allows us to be able to see all of the things and how they work together and what it means for us to be fully ourselves. And that's Only our society and we need to be thinking about Jesus and Ian and not either or what sort of policies are you hoping to see out of the Biden administration that could help the community? I mean, one we have to Have trance people at every single department who know about all the ways in which federal government has been weaponized against trans people or the last four years to be they're involved in those policies. I believe that those people have to be grouped in the White House Coordinating Committee to be able to tackle those issues. And I think that we need to have AH Justice Department that takes the murders of a seriously and communicate that to police departments across the country. The last thing we need to do that we need to stop the anti trans bills that are in over nearly half of that state legislatures that are going to come up next year. Regardless of who's in the White House. Amara Jones journalists and the founder of Trans Lash Media. Thank you for sharing this with me. Thank you so much for having me. The Brooklyn Nets, dreams for an NBA championship may have become more attainable, thanks to a major trade that sent their way. One of the game's best players, James Harden, The news is tempered, though, by troubling questions facing the league to do with the coronavirus, NPR's Tom Goldman reports. When this season began, the Brooklyn Nets were considered an MBA title contender. They had superstar forward Kevin Durant and superstar guard Kyrie Irving back from last season's injuries and a talented supporting cast And then, in the words of a veteran NBA writer. The Nets became a paper champion.

So there's always almost the same quantity and capacity. For anxiety and any science and I remember thinking well, the all I wanted was to have my name on a book and be published I'm it doesn't It doesn't even have to be out on the tables and a bookshop it.

Don't want to belittle because it is great and occasionally if you see it but if you put all your investment in getting to a fancy party or being a number one bestseller or Yeah Yeah I. If you defy, you see, you will sell it. How will the see? That's it becomes dangerous when you feel like. You know if I get. On a few hundred, thousand followers on instagram. Then that will. Inevitably actually weakens because you've placed your sense of self esteem, a Hanzel external uncertain things which are you know fundamentally More fragile. Not put totally investing in anything outside of yourself is really really dangerous even if it's a person that you love. You've got like it's.

I think is really important that one is struggling out there to understand that mental health is not a destination. It's an ongoing journey, and so if you took a big dip this year like I did then there's nothing wrong I came this massive knows right now twenty, six, I tried co myself Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. I hadn't done that in my nine years. So I was I hit rock bottom and you only have hit rock bottom once. So now it's only gonNA be up from here. And I'll never fall again and I've learned all my lessons are now I am unbreakable I'm Bruce Willis although. Very a see now remember anyway no yeah I'm Bruce Willis. So I. So I was absolutely stunned to see that when I was being sort of like hounded controlled and everyone was like saying that I contributed to the death of friend or I had nothing to do with what they were saying Munchausen I say outlying about my sexuality lying about canceling about this on the other just like. Going off means that your personal way it wasn't about not proving with me you're thinking is annoying on not like follow me on I. Don't give a fuck about that. Don't care about people's opinions per se but one is being gessler. It triggered this part of my child trauma the clearly had worked on on enough and I became suicidal again in February I was so embarrassed. I. So embarrassed I didn't even tell any of my friends until maybe like a month ago. Because I spent five months just like so mortified that. ME. The great doer of therapy the one who came all of these things how can I get back here and? There was no I had no empathy towards myself. I was just like Oh God I fucking failed everything I've said about getting better as a lie it wasn't I did get better but she happens on you fool again and that's being human. You want never just immortal. You'll never like impossible to hurt. You can be hurt again and what's important to focus on which very rarely do we ever think about is how fast you getting out of it this time. Because this time it's been five months last time it was two years another time it might be one year if I go through this again but. I came back out I had the mechanisms knew what to do this time I understood it this time I had language for it. So I've still made progress. I just haven't reached the top of the mountain because fuck will I ever does anyone ever and if they do.

"Pulitzer. Breed. Mason's bleed and I'd love to change the world by Shea diamond. This is democracy now. Democracy now dot Org Quarantine report I'm Amy Goodman in New York joined by my co host Juan Gonzalez is home in New Brunswick New Jersey High Juan. Amy and welcome all of our listeners, and the view is across the country and around the world. Well we're going to begin with the Supreme Court ruling Monday that landmark ruling that civil rights law protects gay bisexual and transgender people from discrimination in the workplace. The historic six to three ruling marked a massive victory for the lgbt community as well as everyone as was pen by one of the courts. Most conservative justices trump appointee, neal gorsuch conservative Chief Justice John Roberts joined the majority opinion and stating the title seven at the nineteen, sixty four civil rights act which forbids workplace discrimination on the basis of sex applies to gay and transgender people at least half of the fifty states previously allowed employers to fire workers for being lgbtq. One of the key cases the court considered was that of Amy Stevens a transgender woman who was fired from her job at a Michigan funeral home. In two thousand, thirteen Stevens did not live to see her victory in the Supreme Court. She died last month at the age of fifty nine. The Supreme Court also reviewed the case of Donald Sarda a skydiving instructor who said he was fired for being gay? He died in an accident in two thousand fourteen. This is art as lawyer Gregory Antonino. It'll be a catalyst toward changing history you know. into new decision it's GonNa. Take a the states that. Don't protect LGBT writes time. To adjust to, but is certainly calloused. In historic warned. And That's. That's a bigger than I can imagine. At this time. The victory comes amidst a nationwide uprising against police, brutality and racism. That's often shown a light on violence against Black Trans Women in Brooklyn Sunday at least fifteen thousand people marched through the streets and defensive black trans lives after two more Black Trans women were killed last week. It also comes just days after the trump administration reversed health protections for transgender people under the affordable care act well for more. We're going to Boston Massachusetts to speak with chase. Stranger Deputy Director for transgender justice with the ACLU'S LGBT an HIV project. He was one of the attorneys for Amy Stevens in the landmark supreme. Court civil rights case to protect LGBTQ workers chase welcome back to democracy now can you talk about the significance of the victory and the fact that the person who wrote the majority opinion was the trump appointee neal gorsuch. thank in and thanks for having me back and actually being able to talk about something positive. For wants, this truly is historic ruling and it. Absolutely the court was unequivocal that federal prohibitions on sex discrimination include prohibitions on discrimination against lgbtq people. So this means you cannot be fired across the country for being Lgbtq or otherwise face employment discrimination, but I think what is also important is that courts use title seven cases to interpret all of the other Federal Civil Rights Laws that prohibit sex discrimination, so this is going to have a transformative effect on federal civil rights laws in the context of housing, education and healthcare as well as credit. So this truly is a historic win and in terms of the breakdown. Absolutely briefed case for Neal Gorsuch. He was our. He was our swing. Vote is a textualist. His jurisprudence is premised on the idea that you look to the words of the statute, not to the intentions of Congress at the time statute was enacted, and we hope that he would stick to his principles instead of reverse engineer, an outcome based on politics and he did that, and the chief joined, and I am shocked, but it was the right and righteous decision, and we were on the wall and say so, were they? Well Chase in terms of the nations of this decision just last week, the trump administration reversed health protections for transgender people into the affordable care act, and they announced this. -Ironically on the fourth anniversary of pulse massacre that claimed forty nine lives. In Orlando Florida Gate nightclub your sense of how this would decision have an impact even on on this latest move of the trump administration. Absolutely it will have a huge impact so one of the things to point out is that the trump administration issued a comprehensive anti Trans Regulation at four PM Eastern time on a Friday knowing that the Supreme Court was going to issue opinions. Ten Am on Monday morning, and could likely undo the very regulations that they were putting forth, so it wasn't act of adjust absolute cruelty towards lgbtq people and people who need access to abortion I might. Might, add as well, but ultimately a federal agency cannot contradict the statute that it is implementing, and the ACA has a prohibition on sex discrimination, and that is the source of the protection, so the the trump administration is not the final word on the meeting of sex discrimination under federal off the Supreme Court is, and they just made just absolutely clear that prohibitions on sex discrimination include LGBTQ. People so I think that rule is dead on arrival. Obviously people are going to continue to face discrimination. We know that even when legal protections are in place are particularly are black and indigenous, and Brown Trans Sisters are fem. Sisters are are facing relentless discrimination, and so we have to keep fighting. The laws is not the only source of protection absolutely, but this is going to have a cascading effect and all of the administrative actions that this administration has taken since day one. In two thousand, seventeen from sending title nine student guidance, those actions are completely undermined by yesterday's supreme. Court ruling I wanted to bring Amara Jones into the conversation journalists, founder and Creator, of Trans Lash and assuras equality fellow if you could comment on the significance of Friday's trump. Order that would take away protections for transgender patients under the affordable care act, and then what happened yesterday Amara. Thank you me and it's great to be back on as well. Those. Regulations that allowed for equal access to trans people are pivotal ensued primary ways the first way is that for trans, people who either need or choose to have medical interventions to aid with transition either hormones surgeries. We know that those medical interventions are lifesaving. They have a dramatic impact, not only on people's ability to quite frankly stay alive, but also to have an amount of wellbeing that allows them to be full citizens, and so it's pivotal in that way the second way. Way Of course is that we know that many trans people are afraid to go into odd healthcare facilities, and we that fear is driven by the fat of People's has experienced with discrimination. I even have had that happen before and to spotify that in the law, even with the existing regulation as chase pointed out, people still face discrimination, so that was the case, but to codify that and to expand that.

Amara Jones the creator of Trans Lash Docu series about the lives of transpeople color. Amara to connect those stories to what is happening in society today? Amara. Thank you so much for joining us today. How are you I'm well? How are you doing good during this time I'm so just thrilled to talk to you about all the work day. You're doing I've admire you from a bar, so just really excited for this conversation into. Have you on the podcast? So my first question for you is what was the moment that really drove you into doing community worm well first of all. Thank you for your introduction and thank you for having me. What I'm drove me into community work I think. I think I feel. Compelled to do the work that I do. Feel compelled to do the work that I do is. I have a very clear sense of I think. Where we need to go and what needs to be done and that? As a part of being alive, I have a responsibility to help I love that last part just that sense of responsibility in your just such an inspiration to other women who are some of the folks that inspired you to do the work you do today. Where my mother like all like mini women I have a complicated or too complicated relationship with my mother, but my mother undoubtedly. In, so many different ways I think the black women and my family writ large black women throughout the world's. Have inspired me. I think beyond that just so many inspirations rations of women who do have done amazing things not only now, but in the past. I think Kereta Sky King is amazing. Vastly underrated pivotal. In so many different things I, think queen hardships it. who was the WHO was one of the most successful pharaohs an Egypt? She was a woman she had herself declared a man. In order to be Phero is amazing. I think. Elizabeth I of England despite. Also very complicated history with Africa and Africans, but even in those roles I think they're just so many ways and examples throughout history, and throughout the world of a black women who lead and Hooghly powerfully, and who lead with integrity, and there's actually no shortage of inspiration or ampoules I. Just not everything that you're saying there is just so many women, especially black women who are inspirational. You're one of those women in kind of WANNA shift now to dive into your background of storytelling. You are an amazing communicator. You have emmy awards. You had peabody awards, but what? What I really want to highlight is your work with trans. Lash wet drove you to create that in really eight, the platform of telling the stories of the Lgbtq Community I. It's so fascinating, because honestly I'm one of those people who have more interested in other people that I am interested in myself, which is weird to be a public person in this, because it's very much associated with you value in your voice in some ways above others, and that's not actually the way that I work or move in the world, so I had to be pushed to do. Is Boot is the short answer. I had to be convinced by people that I trust that I'm telling my story was a way to tell other people stories, and that that could be used to leverage and humanize and expand power for trans. People Specifically Trans people of Color, so I had to be coaxed into it to start with my own story. Right of that's how actually transmit started was me saying what is it like to be me in this moment in history? Because this is a moment in history, right even more so now, but we're living in the unit time. What is it like to actually be alive in this moment and to be? And, in this moment to be a Japan's woman of color to be transparent women right now in this extreme moment of social of extreme social backlash, but also unique visibility, and what is that pressure like in one of the things driving that and from that I was able to tell the stories of of other people in our community, and from that has grown. A based Cross Platform, multimedia storytelling project, and that aims on centering the humanity of chance people with specifically transpeople color so very interesting that I had to value myself I before I could really began to connect you my word. That was really power fall I want to dive in quickly. You know you just talked about valuing yourself valuing other people. You did something really monumental last year. The UN, they actually hosted their first event on gender, diversity and Non Binary de's and you helped lead that event. Can you tell us? How did all of that come together in? What was it like moderating a conversation life that for the UN obviously very powerful organization, but also how do you think is going to impact how the U. N. and other organizations do their work going forward with the algae bt Q. Community? It's really interesting. Right hot at one of the ways that came about is that the head of you and women is actually a black woman. She's a black from South Africa right so again it's. Goes back to where we started. which is that innumerable examples of leadership of black women who changed the world? We could spend the whole broadcast during that. So how did that come about it about? You know it's really fascinating for me. Because this is one of the examples of how a Hawaiian internal pressure over a long period of time by people who you've never heard of and whose names you will never know can actually be one of the ways that bring about change because we often think about just being something that is. That comes about through this master direct pressure, right? We think about change that comes through noise and revolutions, but the way that this came about is that there was a small group of people, maybe four by people inside of of. Women who really fought for this over time and they've been connected to the broad based global UN group on Lgbtq. And connected with another working group inside of the U., N.. A. Member states that care.

"Chip. Can this regime exist right now in Venezuela, actually, be described as a left leaning regime, a socialist regime? I just came back from Mexico in Mexico City, and that looks more like what Latin American socialism has has taken the form of over the last twenty years than what we see in Venezuela, which could be more authoritarian. So where does the left in Latin America, go from here is this a reckoning for the left, and if so noble should again, how does the left rebuild its movements number one? If this is the left will help the left, frankly, I mean, this is the people on the left who were defending this, really. It is the left's problem because this is never this never been a regime defended by the right as a right wing regime. Whatever it is whatever you wanna call it. It's been defended by people on the left, a socialist as a regime that is seeking, you know, more egalitarian ISM benefits for the poor. And so on essentially kleptocracy. I mean, this is this is a government which is in power to serve its own interests to stay in power to steal as much as it can from the state and everything, you know, take all the benefits that it possibly can from the position that occupies if the left wants to own that then that's really a big problem for the left. It seems to me. So, you know, there is a modern left in not in America. There's a modern left elsewhere in the world. And they have a big contribution to make it will be a real tragedy. If defending us from Yudo people like Boleslaw Nado people like Donald Trump were left to people like nNcholas model. You know, then the really is. No hope. Wow. That's a way to frame it. Yeah. What do you think where the left goes in and let America it's about to do shows? I mean, we've seen this dependence swing because of corruption scandals, and it's it's because when government support able to get him power. They committed many of the same mistakes that conservative governments had their Maost tremendous amounts of control, the put political loyalists, you know, certain key positions that led to corruption led to nepotism to cronyism. And here we are. I believe that of course, when Donald Trump Quaid's socialism. What what's what's being this causing the states? I it's it's preposterous. I also think that there's a new left wing movement in the United States. That's rightfully questioning a lot of the foreign policy decisions of the United States made history. And and really genuinely questioning, you know, what's the what's the US role, for example that America drawing from history. I think that's. Very important. And in that comes from a new generation of democratic socialists were willing to bring this up and put it send stage and say and many of them say in a while, we don't, you know, support by the little while we don't say the Bodo is it's legitimate leader or represents the left inland, America. We we do have to have a debate in this country of what it means to to intervene what it means to sort of orchestrate regime change and why what is the ultimate goal. And I think that's absolutely Jim it position. And I and I support it, and I support that the bait, and I think it's absolutely Jim that said Venezuela. It's not the left is socialism same with. I'm Louis Mexico. You know, you're you're seeing right now the left governing Mexico for the first time, it's modern history. The jury is still out if this question of guava is what is the left? I think left to right feeling but let America I need more is strong institutional store credit institutions in accountability. And this is what's been missing. And everytime. The right or the left come, you know, they come with saviors come with. Messiahs and that's been day. That's been the problem. Li-?

"amara jones" Discussed on Sidedoor

"Up. I'll see if that's my baby's Clave. Watch it ago had better pay. Doing. For decades hides community has been mostly African American, Emma Kostya and other neighborhoods like it. We're segmented from the rest of Washington DC by the anacostia river and anacostia became known as a crime ridden in low income neighborhoods ba- lately that is starting to change because Washington DC needs more housing for its growing number of new wealth residence. In the last three years, some of the fastest climbing home values have been in around anacostia and with pricier homes, come newer amenities to pull land Starbucks. Both recently announced their first locations east of the river. You may remember I usua- alluding to that in her poem earlier and don't worry. We'll get to hear more of that poetry later. Rosie high, totally a more about anacostia evolution to an up and coming neighborhood when they stopped inside. Hot. To buy your house. People since I'm in the mail every day. I get some every weekend to me how much they offered you in the letters, the max, five hundred. Okay. How much did you buy the house for sixty John? Think that was bad and best? By the way, having someone offer you five hundred thousand dollars for a house that you bought for sixty thousand dollars needs that its value grew by over seven hundred percent and a few decades for some people selling a house that has skyrocketed in value is too good of a deal to pass up. Hides neighbor for example, is selling her house, but Hyde says that she has no plans to do the same. Now's can never be for sale. Never ever. It is air property. I have a son and he is a pal house. He has mumps Chad. Okay. And when I'm done messing around here, I don't know what it'd be, but it won't be so okay. Matt thing is building generational wealth is west import. So when any given day you come in this house, you found four generations of people. And so. That's how it's always been growing up. So she plans on keeping her house in the family, but for some people selling your home for a lot more than you bought it for is too good of a deal to pass up my neighbor, European just moved in June, whatever these lobbyists and his girlfriend, the person who was in house before him. She died two years ago and they sold the house and he just moved in June of lay shere. He don't own house is now from the people bought down. Now, if you haven't already, gust would hide thing is pretty characteristic of gentrification. What's unique in anacostia though, is that the feelings residents are expressing about gentrification inside their homes are also being preserved for the public because backup has been Sonian anacostia community museum community members and curator's documenting neighborhood change as it happens smear, Miguel, chief curator at the museum. We're an exhibition called a right to the city is on display. It looks at the transformations that Washington neighborhoods, including anacostia having going through for years, and he told us why the rising property value that height is saying can be good news for some, but definitely not everyone. So there is with rising property values, all kinds of applications. Some of the obvious positive ones are that you know, for homeowner, that has owned a home for a long time that sees their property value rise. That means they have more value for their home. But at the same time can come with that rising property taxes and part of the child is particularly as you see for senior homeowners and side. Note smear isn't crazy about using the word gentrification. Gentrification is actually a term. I largely void. It is a term that has taken on so many meanings over time that depending on the day, depending on the person you ask, they'll get quite a different definition. So you won't be hearing us use the g word much in this episode. Instead Samir described what's happening in Rosie heights neighborhood is part of an ongoing process of change that could be disappointing for some and exciting for others. And the reality is neighborhoods like Anna Kostya. There are deeply mixed feelings about that kind of change. On the one hand, there's both desire for more daycare facilities to more supermarkets, more sit down restaurants. But also for the community to have a greater sense of ownership over those amenities when they arrive. There's also a cultural component to all of this when residents who've been living in an area for decades leave. Sometimes neighborhoods, flavor and customs go with them. And while these changes are happening. Now, their roots are old. You know, the changes that have reshaped this community over the past sixty seventy years. Our changes have affected neighborhoods across the country. This community historically was actually two communities. One white one black living side-by-side living segregated worlds. And that began to change in the nineteen fifties. When a number of proc- started to unfold, you might be able to guess what some of those processes were. A big one was desegregation when Washington DC public schools ended segregation in nineteen fifty four. A lot of white residents left east of the river communities like anacostia heading for other parts of Washington in the suburbs instead. And let's not forget the other process, urban renewal, a federal policy that was big in the nineteen fifties and sixties. And the idea was that the federal government would fund sensually any municipality across the country that was interested in quote, unquote, renewing particular neighborhoods in their cities. And these neighborhoods disproportionately ended up being working class African American neighborhoods and some cases, Latino neighborhoods, Chinese American neighbor. Hoods. The idea was to tear down what we're called slum neighborhoods and replace them with the Ford -able housing, but urban renewal resulted in less housing more strip malls and disbursed disconnected communities. Eventually national figures like novelist, James Baldwin who is known for his social commentary in the fifties and sixties said urban renewal was designed to target African Americans. A boy last week was Ecksteen Adventists Koto mate on television down his house because Cisco is engaging. Most other cities. Now aged in some urban renewal, which means moving to goes out. It means the removal. That is what it means. And the federal government is is accomplice to this bat in Washington, DC's case, urban renewal projects pushed working class African Americans out of different corners of the city and into areas like anacostia combine that with white flight that took place in the same areas after school desegregation and the result is this, the creation of ninety plus percent African American neighborhood. That as it became more African American in its demographics became increasingly neglected by the city. And over time became a DP stigmatize neighborhood. And if you're listening to the story and feeling like could apply to Chicago Houston, New Haven, Connecticut, and other cities while it's because it does anacostia and the rest of southeast Washington are in the federal government's backyard. So when lawmakers thinking about everything from urban renewal to the war on drugs, anacostia was sometimes a laboratory for national policies affecting cities. I should add. Something here neighborhoods changing, both economically and socially seems like it's in the DNA of America. You know what we think of gentrification is both older new there, elements that have very, very deep roots. And yet there is something distinctive about the change that's reshaping cities, both American global cities. Now, the extent in the pace at which populations are growing and the extent to which residents of cities in some cases don't have the right to exercise influence over the change that's happening, I think is also importantly new. In some ways, the money coming in might be new, but the story is old. Think about it. This part of town went from racially segregated communities living side by side to almost entirely African American, and now that's changing again and remember the teen writers that I was telling you about earlier, well, they're absorbing the history that's documents in the right to the city exhibition and for some of the writer. Here's the story hits really close to home. Amara Jones is seventeen years old and grew up in anacostia her entire life. She seems neighborhood change in history books and from our own front porch. Here's the poem that she shared blowing into blackness. How long how long she thinks and says, as she waits for change has been spoken of never completed, why mama wonders as a circle of a miliary closes around her, the fight for quality has been fought before, but an equally. So she moma's and complains about the advantages of the whites, the rights of the whites in the pleasures that her children are not welcome to enjoy the joy. She excuses herself from daily because of the color of her skin. Tongue burns when she must say baby, you cannot go there because you are not woken daughter, you're just a smartest them. They are scared of your smarts. Not your looks. Don't worry. He says, momma, I. May white friends. They have invited me over to play. She says, you do not have white friends, nor do you have right neighbors. You have both who want to take you away from me. Where's poppa your daddy works across town to provide you better? Why do you worry me with his whereabouts you eat, don't you? I need new shoes, mama. I need a new life baby. Can we go to the fair, are we white? Is Danny ever coming home? Is your stomach full? Her painting of change had become smeared d'image trampled, even her desires have metamorphasized. She no longer wanted change. She looked for revenge.
