Who Can Speak Freely on University Campuses?
"However, I want to go to the list of the most absurd universities that you probably don't want to see in your kids too if you want them to have an open mind and have the freedom of speech. Skidmore, I have never heard of skidmore university. You just give more college as a private college. They're amongst the top 5 words. Georgetown university, I think it's rinsler, polytechnic, I could be saying it wrong, it's a private university. University of Pennsylvania and Columbia university. And so kids from Colombia university has something to say about them being ranked last, obviously there was a mixed emotions when they were interviewed on campus. But one of them said, I think everyone here is very open minded and so I'm not sure are really sure where this is coming from. And in the article we read, it says, however, Rihanna, a senior at Avi Lee school, said, of course, people think they can't say things. I think people think they might be judged by the majority. If you go through the statistics and you look at the biases, right? I mean, you would think that people on campus that are afraid to speak would be generally anybody who wants to speak out. However, there's a disproportionate representation of conservatives. That are afraid to speak out. According to statistical data from fire dot org, it says that conservative students are most likely to feel they can not express their opinions freely with 42% reporting that they often feel uncomfortable speaking freely compared to 13% of liberal students.

Breitbart's Matt Boyle Describes What Breitbart Means to Him
"Been a bright Bond. How long? Ten years now. Okay, ten years. Tell us a little bit about what breitbart means to you as a journalist and a conservative, and for those who aren't familiar with Andrew, I sat there. I worked for breitbart. You know I was the national security editor before I joined the Trump administration. But I never got to meet him. So why is he so different? I think one thing is fearlessness, but you tell our listeners and our viewers. It wasn't just fearlessness. Yes, it was fearlessness, and we see a lot of that across the conservative movement. Now, a lot of people out there being fighters obviously Donald Trump is probably the preeminent example of that. But it's not just the fearlessness. He was downright funny, too. Like if you ever hung out with Andrew, and I would do it. I never actually worked at breitbart when he was alive. He always tried to convince me to come over. I worked for Tucker Carlson. At daily caller, yes. So Tucker was my first editor. I've been blessed to have some great mentors. So I got to know Andrew breitbart really well. Yes. Yes. Totally changed my life. I changed my perspective on banks. Why? Tell us why. What was special about his perspective? He approached it from, so I was in journalism school. I was getting a master's degree. When I met Andrew breitbart, so I was freelancing and working part time for daily caller while I was going to American university for a master's degree in journalism. And then this was during the Tea Party movement in 2010. And I was doing a story for the daily caller on bias against conservatives by the left media at these Tea Party rallies where they were going out and interviewing people and then selectively editing them and deceptively editing the videos to make conservatives at these rallies. It's a good people that were going out to these Tea Party rallies to make them look like racists. And so I was looking for somebody to talk to. And I think it was Tucker who recommended. I reach out to this guy, Andrew breitbart. I'd never heard of him before. So I sent him this big long well thought through, press request email. And I went through the journalism training that you're supposed to act like your objective and you're supposed to, this, that and the other. Andrew and I started talking about this in about the flaws in the industry and it was him who I think convinced it was among other people, but it was him talker a few others that convinced me that the biggest flaw in the media industry that you see this across the board in The New York Times Washington Post et cetera is that they claim to be objective. There's no such thing as objectivity. And frankly, a lot of the bias that you see inserted into the media is unintended.
Robert Cahaly: Polls Suggest Good Signs Leading Into November
"About the midterm election sort of generally right now We're hearing mixed messages mixed polls the Democrats are holding out hope that it won't be a Republican wave The Republicans are holding out hope that we take the house maybe even the Senate What are you thinking I say nothing but good signs One of the things that really frustrates me is I feel like there's a lot of the kind of establishment some of the media polling firms some of the big university public firms they're trying to impact what people think of me Some of these polls are out there And I'm not sure that they're actually doing the job A poll should reflect the electorate not be designed to affect the electorate and I worry that the latter is what a lot of these polls are out there trying to do They're trying to create a narrative They just doesn't exist This is an excellent year for Republicans We have competitive candidates and I really don't see much of what they're talking about And when we start putting honest numbers out there we see these media pulsars who don't mind being wrong when they're all wrong together but they don't like it when anybody's right And they're starting we're starting to bring in a little honest to do them and I think they don't want to be embarrassed again And so you're going to start seeing them acting like a shift that's happened It's not a shift It's been like this
What Actually Is a Marxist?
"You're always talking about marxists. I hear this repeated theme. Marxist Marxist Marxist. What is a Marxist? What did Karl Marx actually believe? My 19 year old at the university of Alabama is being taught by her professors that Marx was smart profound and visionary help me out here who was Karl Marx. Great question. So Karl Marx is without a doubt one of the most influential people ever to live. There is no questioning that. So Karl Marx is interesting. He was a radical student. Part of the young hegelian group at the university of Berlin. Now, Hegel is a very complicated topic very deep. He wrote a book called the phenomenology of spirit. Hegel basically stole Christian eschatological framing end times. And created a theory of history, so whatever you think of Hegel think of history that things are constantly unfolding towards an inevitable perfection. It goes through this series of thesis and antithesis it creates a synthesis. We talk about this a little bit actually in an upcoming podcast, which is why you have to subscribe to the Charlie Kirk show podcast with James Lindsay, who understands the topic far better than I do. I have a surface understanding of it. He has a deep complex understanding of Hegel. Hegel was profound, though, because he got people to basically buy into the idea that history is constantly unfolding that we're on a journey towards inevitable utopia. Now that is against Christianity in the sense that our actions or the state actions are not going to bring us towards utopia, but we do believe that eventually that the people who give their lives to the lord will end up living in Paradise living in heaven.
Charlie and Dr. James Lindsay on the Dangers of the COVID Mind Virus
"Are not taking seriously this takeover of every major institution of our children of education, of finance, of sports, of language, and then 2020 happens. So doctor Lindsay was doing all this research and then Floyd a palooza in the summer of 2020 unfolds. They only known cure for COVID. Right, exactly. Where if you're burning down a Wendy's, it's better than wearing a mask. And so really a large parts of the conservative movement I use that term loosely were completely taken by surprise where all of a sudden everything was about race. It was about structural inequity, oppressor versus oppressed, and we are still living through the damage that was implemented from the summer of 2020. And I'm not even talking about the burn buildings. That is true. I'm talking about how they saw their moment to change curriculum, implement textbooks, take over HR departments, be able to change hiring practices, affirmative action quotas. They saw a 90 day window when everyone was locked down and cooped up, took over the entire PR narrative to really introduce in my opinion. This is provocative and the media will find this to be newsworthy. I think that mind virus has done and will do more damage than the Chinese coronavirus. Oh, absolutely. Let's not even a question. And as a matter of fact, he calls it a mind virus. Let's exonerate him a moment and make the media have a slightly harder job than just getting the ignore what I'm about to say. This is totally based and this is one of the things I read in the literature writing those fake papers is there is a paper that was published right here. Arizona state university, two professors. Brienne files and Michael Carter, if you want their names, we like to name names. They wrote this paper in 2016 called women's studies as a virus, and in the paper they explained that these ideologies like women's studies and it could extend a gender erase or whatever you want it to be. Are meant to operate. They said the ideal metaphor for what they do is a virus. They say an ideal metaphor for us would be viruses like HIV, Ebola, SARS, some viruses cause cancer. Well, cancer represents true transformative change. So that's good too. Conservatism, they say represents like the immune system. And normally you need the immune system to preserve the body. But in this case, the virus will be good for the body. So we have to suppress the immune system. This is really how they describe themselves. And
Liberty University’s Dave Brat Breaks Down the State of the Economy
"There is a tremendous amount of economic confusion today, actually just going on generally, to help unpack that is a brilliant economic mind, Dave brat, from Liberty University, Dave, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Hey, Charlie, thank you. Patriot mobile is great, by the way. I was just up with her team at D.C., your spot on. They're really great. They're doing a good job. They're actually solving the cell phone crisis via conservative approach patriot mobile dot com slash Charlie just to remind everybody. So let's just start with the top line news. There's so much happening here, Dave, the Dow is down 600 points below 30,000 bear market, the economy is all over the place. We have these contra indicators, how would you rate you're a doctor, not a medical doctor, but you'll pretend to be a medical doctor. How would you rate the health of the American economy right now? Oh, seriously, I mean, the economy, right? Which is different than the stock market. That's econ one O one. The economy is a corpse laying on a table. And we've been shoving blood through it in the form of fiscal stimulus spending through the federal government. And 9 trillion on the Federal Reserve balance sheet. So 31 trillion in debt on the federal government side, 9 trade to keep it alive and it's still in a recession for the last 6 months growing at zero. So the economy is a one or a two and then the markets follow, right? So earnings are going to go down, profits are going to go down. We're going into a recession, the fed has said we're going to force a recession to get the wage wage price spiral down, right? Inflation is bad enough, but if inflation makes its way into the wage rates, that becomes what they call an economics sticky. Stinky prices would stay around for years. And so the fed has to end that. So they're engineering a recession and you had it right. We're about ready to find probably another 10% or maybe even 20% down in the markets.
If You Have Any Role in Mutilating a Child, You Are a Savage Monster
"Paint with a broad brush here. I don't care. If you're a nurse or a doctor or the person that has to wrap up the discarded private parts and like paper and throw it in the garbage dumpster in the back of the hospital, I don't care who you are, their own Stanford Vanderbilt university medical center. But if you have any role, no matter how large or how small, in mutilating a child, then you deserve to spend the rest of your life burning in the Lake of fire. You are a savage monster. And you deserve to spend the rest of your human life locked up in a cell. This is shameful and this is beyond horrifying. And I will say this, it would behoove you. Yes, I said, behoove. It would behoove you. To reach out to your local hospital. To find out if they too are engaged in this sickening, sickening abuse.

How the KGB Recruited Former Agent Jack Philip Barsky
"The KGB approaches you. Yeah. What were you doing when you were 23 or 24? I was studying. In my third year of a 5 year program to get a message in chemistry. So that made you a good candidate for potential international espionage. Not necessarily. I mean, there's a couple of interviews out there that were given by the two heads of the first directorate, which was espionage, and what they said, what they were looking for in candidates were like a whole bunch of character traits. Sure, you had to be smart. You had to make quick decisions. You had to be able to be by yourself a lot. You had to be able to you had to be honest, so to become a really good liar. And my favorite trait that they mentioned is a well controlled. Controlled disposition or controlled I'm sorry. Anyway, the last word is adventure. This position towards adventure or something like that. Okay. So then you pass the you pass the test and they deploy you into the United States. Is that right? Yeah, but that test, you know, at first I had an unofficial relationship with a handler when I studied and I was already employed by the by the university as an assistant professor when they actually made me the offer. So it was a year and a half of really checking me out. Yes. Because this is a tough job.
Remembering Judge Robert Bork With His Son, Robert Bork Jr.
"One, glad to have you back on the podcast. I'm glad to talk about this. You know, being a very personal issue about your father, but he impacted a lot of people. As we get started, talk about how he came about, you know, you know, he came out, he got his law degree, he went to the army, who came to Yale. What are some of those memories you actually in our previous podcast, you actually talked about, you know, growing up as he was on the Yale faculty. Yeah. So just a quick aside, because it's funny, you called him justice for it, and I wanted to say, no, if only he'd be. So yeah, anyway, look, he was a pugilist. He boxed in high school. He was always striving and fighting and engaging. Politically, you know, it's old story, but you know, when he was in high school, he was a socialist. And decided he didn't like that. And he was like, I think he was a libertarian. He didn't like that. Ultimately he became a conservative. He was always trying out ideas. And you went off to the Marine Corps and then ultimately University of Chicago. Where he was an undergrad there. Studying the great books. That's what Chicago was back then. So he was a voracious reader, consumer of ideas, and here's an interesting thing that not a lot of people know. He wanted to be a journalist.
Google, IBM Backtrack on Race-Conscious Fellowships
"I'm continuing my discussion of the misdoings and malfeasance of various social media platforms. And now I want to talk about Google. Now what I'm saying about Google to some degree also applies to IBM. Apparently, Google and IBM and I talked about this on the podcast, think about a week or so week or two ago. Established race based scholarship programs. And established them in coordination with many elite universities. The Google program alone was called the Google fellowship. And Google was carrying out this program with Harvard, Princeton, MIT, University of Pennsylvania, duke, NYU, UNC Chapel Hill, Johns Hopkins, I'm Carnegie Mellon. So this is a Google fellowship, and basically under the Google fellowship, if the selection process produced more than two nominees for this for this fellowship, Google required that the next two nominees quote self identify as a woman black African descent, you know, the whole, the whole gamut, trans, LatinX, or person with a disability. But it was essentially a kind of mandatory quota. You have to do this. So these colleges entered into contracts with Google as a requirement. Now, this as it turns out, flatly violates not only the well, gladly vibrate violates a civil rights law that goes all the way back to 1866, which completely bans racial discrimination and contracting. And let's notice that these are contracts between Google and these universities. And then there's also title 6 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans racial discrimination at federally funded schools, and all these schools, some of them, of course, private, some of them, public, but nevertheless, they all have massive contracts with the federal government and so they fall under the federally funded clause. Now, the free Beacon, the Washington free Beacon, publicized, did an article, which I talked about here on the podcast about this policy on the part of Google. And they also mentioned that IBM has a similar policy IBM had a fellowship program, and it required a mandated that half the nominees of this PhD fellowship program B quote diversity candidates. Now, Google talked, I'm sorry, the Washington free Beacon talked to a bunch of civil rights lawyers when they go, well, these programs are illegal.
UNM Students Threaten Political Pundant
"All right, Tommy lahren. I think y'all know the time and Larry if you don't, she's a political pundit, she was hot, a long time ago. And I'm not talking about looks. I'm talking about her popularity. She's a decent looking woman. No woman looks better than my wife. However, this came my wife listening. Anybody better look better than you, baby. But Tommy lahren was they attempted to attack her. What university was she at? University of New Mexico. She was at university in New Mexico doing a speech, a turning point USA speech, and the funny thing is that I've been there. I've done those speeches all over the country. I think I've been in like 25, 30 universities. I did 22 in one year. Speaking all over the country and speaking life to these young people because they have no recourse. They have no outlet on campus. They just getting bludgeoned. Every day on campus bodies crazy deranged leftist. So while she was speaking, these half retarded leftists decided that they were going to break in the door and I guess they were going to threaten and scare her, you know what's funny is that I don't know if it's because she's white or she's a woman that they tried this.

DeSantis flies two planes of migrants to Marthas Vineyard; Karine Jean
"Brandon Tatum is a 7 year veteran of the Tucson police department. He's a YouTube sensation with 1.9 million subscribers. He started blacks up with Candace Owens and now he's tackling his biggest assignment yet. This is the officer Tatum show. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to the officer Tatum show. I got so much to talk about. Today I want to hit on a few pointers. When it comes to Ron DeSantis, governor Abbott sending illegal aliens to Martha's Vineyard and some of these liberal self proclaimed sanctuary states. Now, if you've been watching the news or paying attention at all, you will realize that there were illegal aliens who were sent to Martha's Vineyard. Now, if you don't know what Martha's venue is, just imagine a place where all the wealthy people have their guesthouses and or vacation homes and Obama lived there. I'm sure Oprah Winfrey got a house there. All of these mega millionaires and billionaires have property at Martha's Vineyard. I would argue that it's an exclusive location where only wealthy people reside. Now I'm not going to lie and say I don't know people that live in Martha's Vineyard. I at least know one person that has a house in Martha's Vineyard that they don't even live at most of the time. So you can imagine that they are a billionaire. However, the ploy by desantis and governor Abbott sending some of these illegal aliens to multiple locations, I think, is petty, but I'm here for the pettiness. The only way that these people are going to get a taste of their own medicine is when we start being just as pity as they're being. I find it quite interesting. That they cry from the mountaintop. We need to, we need to have immigrants. Republicans are racist. They don't care about people. These people just looking for opportunities. And then when the opportunities are presented to be provided for by them, now it's a crisis. People in Martha's Vineyard network and you probably have to at least be worth several $1 million to even have a place in Martha's Vineyard. Remember all the stuff people are talking I don't let them in the border. No, no, no, let them stay in your vacation home. You're 15,000 square foot vacation home that you only visit for three months out of the year. How about you let their legals alien stay there? Remember when you were talking all that trash about president Donald Trump saying he's a racist for not wanting people to come over here. Oh, now it's in your backyard now you are concerned. See, because I think it's not fair that the ones who are advocating for open borders the most are not affected the most by open border policy. If you look at it, you say, I mean it does illegal aliens coming through Texas coming through California. Coming through Arizona, many of them ended up in Florida. What are the chances that they're going to make it up to Chicago? What are the chances that they're going to make it up to Northern California? Some of these places, they're going to settle in a place that's closest and most conducive for them to settle in. And you know who's going to take the burden of those issues, the taxpayer. Where do you think these people go to school? When they bring their kids over here, where do you think they go to school? They ain't homeschooling them. They're going to school with your kids. And then when the teachers aren't getting paid enough and they're burdened to the bone, why do you think that's the case? Because we got an influx of people in our country that don't belong here. And we really don't have the resources to take care of them. Man, you think they're not bumping and grinding and pumping and sweating. They haven't kids too. And they having a lot of kids. You think they weren't contraceptive. You think they may not say that other word. You think they're doing the Afghanistan like Joe Biden? They probably are, because. They did. They may not say it. Y'all know what I'm talking about. They're removal game is on trash mode. So I bet you a $1 million they're having a lot of kids. And where do you think they go? When they're giving birth to children, they go to the hospital. And your insurance, or if you don't have insurance, you paid out of pocket for the birth of your child and your second child in your third child. On their 7th kid, who do you think is paying for it? They don't have a job, many of them, they don't have jobs, they don't have a social security number. They can't get a wicked work anywhere. A lot of them are working under the table. They don't have insurance. But that pregnancy that high risk pregnancy is 40, $50,000. Who is paying for it? Okay. I'm just wondering where you're paying attention. Are you awake? And I'm not saying in any form of fashion that we should be mean to people. And we should hate people. How dare you want to be in America? I understand why you want to be in America. However, we can't just let everybody come into America. We can't just let everybody do it. Let me just give you an example. I gave this example at a university that I was speaking at. And I said, you pay

"american university" Discussed on The Morgan Zegers Show
"I use the sheets. I'm just plain cream and white, but I also love the slippers, okay? I wear the slippers all around my home. Now you guys, I want to talk to you a little bit about Israel for the rest of the show and to really explain why I'm here turning point USA if you guys aren't familiar with them, they're a great student organization. They started out as a campus club organization for students on college campuses, conservative, pro free market, pro economic freedom, and the values that our nation was founded on and hopefully will continue to stand on if we just get through these pickles that were in right now, right? So they provide basically a source of camaraderie is how I describe it for students. I went to American university where it was 90% liberal. The student body was very, very slanted. And so there's very few numbers of Republicans or conservatives or people who just on the right or even libertarians putting the libertarians and conservatives together still gave you a small little pool of fish. That being said, I always think back to how much perhaps boulder I would have been if I knew that I had a community of people that thought like me and had a strong presence on campus and got together every week and kind of talked about ideas and values and what was happening on campus because I was on the number one most politically active campus in the country. And that really is a core purpose of turning point USA is to provide these students who are on a very hostile campuses. Basically, a team, a community where they can have friends and then those friends, what's really great is as the organization has developed, it's been almost I think officially ten years now. As it's developed, the students that were originally in these clubs, they've now become young adults young professionals and just have gone out into their careers and they've been able to rely on the sources and friendships from turning point when they were in college. And so it's really great if you have any college students out there in your life or if you're a college student, I really encourage you to consider joining. It doesn't take much. You just go to the monthly meetings, you have speakers come to your campus. There's a bunch of really cool things that you can do. And I would have done it if I were in college, had I known and had I had the opportunity. So I'm just thankful to be a part of it now. Now, what's really, really important to the fundamentals of America, when we talk about turning point being a nonprofit dedicated to educating and bringing students together around these core topics around American values and economic independence, what's fundamental to these things are the western judeo Christian values that our nation and many nations of the west were founded on built on and thrive on compared to the east.
"american university" Discussed on Here & Now
"There told me you know. Women are allowed to be in the streets without a male guardians. Not a problem. It's desirable to have one in a women are allowed to high schools. Even though not have been opened yet. Because the hub administration hasn't hasn't allowed that yet and The taliban were locals. Most of them were from that area and they've been there for a long time. Yeah i just wonder and you have. Some great specific illustrative quotes in your story. One of them from a village elder says when someone doesn't feel danger doesn't fear war and can walk with the peace of mind. He's happy even when he is hungry. I wonder if you have another kind of anecdotal conversation about this. That really stays with you right now. The wall this war also can very dramatic economical. People talked about you. Know their cows being struck During the iraq or or or the fighting people are quite poor for them. Cow is livelihood You know people talking about the doors Because you know this. Is matt homes one door. That is expensive for their gets damaged nitrate. That's a huge cost. Many card affords. And obviously their medical costs you spoke to a villager bordeaux fantastic some money now thousands of dollars Which any time is unimaginable. Because he and his son were injured in one of his last nitrates. Well now you're reporting. In a certain taliban strongholds. I imagine other rural areas might be a little different. Are there places where villagers might fear the iron fist of the taliban. I mean it sits in the version of roles now so the places that used to be the most insecure are now the most secure such as barky barack. And the places these to be safe such as the banshee. Rally the least safe. Because that's what the taliban never had much local support this was always the stronghold of resistance and cheer value even tried to resist after the fall of kabul didn't work very well The taliban massive forces an inch The the end of the september. And so there. You see a very different picture. We see shuttered storefronts. You see people trying to leave. The very few are still there. And there are more taliban fighters than civilians there and lose taliban there are not locals. The all came from faraway. Don't speak in many cases and really the pollution nicely and instances of of outright retribution in places like the panshir valley. Well so what happened is when the taliban came to cobbled announced an amnesty and though there have been cases of extradition against some former security officials that is so far exception than the rule with about dozens. Maybe hundreds in the country for four million people in different The through hughes dishonesty and and and engaged in a fight in in an armed resistance which they held on crushed with overwhelming force You know with the use of air power. They sent helical combat helicopters to strafe at resistance and people were killed. That'd be plus to being killed. They're talking about. Probably hundreds there have been no reports Credible reports of masculine civilians but certain people who are fighters have been executed. Okay and and finally from faraway americans can see places like afghanistan the two sets of uniforms or those who were the jersey of the taliban and those who wore the jersey of the afghan army supported by the us over the years. But when you go to these villages. I imagined up close. It looks quite different right. And even in the villages like barak barack that are supportive of the taleban. Generally made of the villagers had joined the afghan army and had fought against the neighbors leaf siblings. Sometimes were in the telephone that it's quite common So the reality is much more complex. But i think on every side there. Is this gratitude that the war is over for the first time in forty three years because remember the has been conflict in afghanistan since the late nineteen seventies with number eighty stopped so in two generations to village do not know what peace means and all of a sudden roads are open people travel from kandahar to pretty much anywhere to here Being stopped and without risking their lives. And it's a. It's a very new feeling. That does give this sort of honeymoon period for the taliban who are unable to provide services able to have the economy running and after the very good at running the state but relief that the killings have stopped does. Give them this opportunity for now. How long would last. It depends on you know on how well the economy doesn't future. I mean just quickly. I i i do have to ask you for families that had siblings fighting on either side of this conflict. What are those families look like now. We have siblings who are reconciled. In many cases you know siblings. I reconciled Question is sort of the wider society and The taliban half proclaiming amnesty and the fighters you talk to say yes. We forgive them. Don't forget them and fear is for many on the losing side Is that this. Amnesty will not last and at some point in the year from now two years from now five years from now this course will be settled and so embarked barack you know the villagers were in. The army came back to the village. Look around there. Were told their forgiving. But nobody really stayed there. Yeah yeah well. That is yorislav.

"A professor at the American University recently told Forbes magazine that if you are in her sixties, and you're still healthy well, you should be planning for roughly 40 years of retirement income rather than 30. And you mentioned that in the previous segment 40 years. Galley, though, is such a long time. How do we possibly make sure that our nest egg last that long? Well, I I think I'll start with the most boring ass of all. Is you two proper planning? Really? I know when we take a look at it. It looks like a long time. But Don't quite a lot of people listening here can probably look back and say, Wow, I can look back and see that the last 20 years just went by, like a flash without blinking and so I think that you know, especially with today's advanced medicine. And what better example do we need? Then seeing the pandemic start or come to our attention right around February march of this year, And here we are in December. There is already a vaccine at I mean, whoever thought I mean, just amazing, incredible. So Absolutely. And I think that people are living longer than ever. And they need a support longer retirements. Than their predecessors. And so For healthy individuals and their sixties. You know, we're approaching a point that you know we're 40 years must replace the traditional 30 that people used to talk about, Uh, Azaz, a conservative planning horizon, So I I think that that's what people need to look at. And I think that Sitting down because it's one thing saying, Hey, I've invested well. My advisor done well for me, and we've done a great job, and that's great. I mean, I think that's commendable, and I'm sure that there's a lot of advisers out there that have helped fill their clients to grow that portfolio. But as you Enter the next stage of your life. Whether you are already retired, or you are within, I usually say 5 to 10 years from retirement. You really need to take a hard look at what your economy is going to look like, and part of that is saying, Okay, I'm gonna need a certain income to support my lifestyle. My expenses as we've talked about it and previous shows, and I'm sure that this is nothing that's new to our listeners. Is that, um not only people are living longer, but also the expenses in retirement. Sometimes get higher, And it's an example is, uh, as we're getting old, they're obviously, unfortunately, don't get healthier. So we're gonna have to go to the doctor more and perhaps take more medication and things that arm or Hide around our health are going to cost more things. You know one of the articles that I read that talked about the fact that although we live in California here, but even in the winter heating up the house Is a much more expensive, expensive I can call it that way to keep us warm. And so you could see some of those expenses. Go on, go up and so on. And so on. I could give a lot of example, the point that I'm trying to make Is that you want to make sure that you have a plan that you create one that's going to go ahead and make sure that not only don't run out of money, but also you can live the lifestyle that you have been accustomed to that you don't have toe pull an audible halfway through your retirement and find yourself in a situation that you have to change the lifestyle that you have and the quality of living that You've been living and that's something that I feel that a lot of people don't put enough thought into. And so I urge people sit down. Take a look at your situation like you've, said Chris. It's the end of the year and it's not only a good Time to take a look at our portfolios and reflect on what we've done in this past year. It's also a good time to say okay, things have changed or potentially, we can see an economy that's going to change. And we're also seeing the future changed quite a bit as we're all seeing all these tech companies growing faster than we can have ever imagined, So I think that's something that people who are very serious about their retirement. People who want to make sure that they Make that money last for the rest of their lives, and not only for the rest of their lives but potentially leaving money to their heirs. After that need to plan in advance. You can't just get to the data retirement and just kind of go like home. So what do I do now? And I think that's something that you have to take it. Fatted of Any tool and any knowledge that you can get to help you do that, And that's what we're here for us fiduciaries. We look at your situation and see how It benefits you the most and what you should be doing for your retirement to make sure that you're not going to outlive your money, whether your retirement last 30 years 40 years, possibly even longer than that, you know, you touched on something there. Income for life is willing good, and that that is a great thing with income for life. Style is, I think, really If you want to strive for you don't want your quality of life to have to drastically change as you get further and further into your retirement. You don't want to have to, You know, again, going back to the having go back to work because you have to because there Trying to make ends meet the developing a proper plan. I've read this before Gal and I want your opinion on this, where it talks about retirement spending year through year kind of as a bell curve or smiley face. We're at the beginning. You know you're doing all the things that you wanted to do, whether it be traveling or seeing the grandkids. Obviously, in 2020. It's a little different, but All the things that you plan on doing, You're really doing them And then your expenditures kind of slow down for a little bit there in the middle, And I guess it's called the slow go years and then Aziz you get further along in your retirement and medical expenses do up your your Expenses also go up. And so the prices go up. Is that something that you generally kind of see when it comes to retirees? Well, of course, that's something that really comes into play when we're talking about the first years, every tire mint the versus your latter years and as you get older, but that's something that people sometimes don't take into consideration. They think that what they can live off of today is not going to change and we try to make sure That we take a look at the overall picture, because, as you get older, some of those expenses will get larger and it's something that we try to plan with our clients for And I think that the more prepared you are the less surprises you will have. We like pleasant and good surprises, and not the other kind of surprises. And so I think that that's something that Looking at your retirement very closely and Literally. I don't want to say challenging yourself, but making sure that you kind of put that financial mirror up there and ask yourself. Is this going to be enough for my lifestyle? Because sometimes we come across individuals that Unfortunately, have to resort to using maybe equity in their home or even having family members helped take care of them because they have not planned properly and we hope that those are not going to be you our listeners when it comes to your retirement. That's kind of the goal is to help prevent that from happening to you down the road. The more time you have on your side, obviously, the easier it is, but it is never really too late to get serious about your retirement planning and galley has a fiduciary acting in your best interest may sometimes tell you things that you don't want to hear. But there are things that you need to hear. In order to maintain a sustainable and enjoyable retirement. But it all starts.

You know, Greg, I was talking to a friend of mine happened to your black man friend of mine, and he couldn't believe he's like I didn't know you were Trump supporter because we're friends, right?

And he was shocked and she said he really started to listen to me. And then he said he said to me, But why would the media Why would the media lie to me? But and this is the thing. How many people out there? Are just eating up whatever the mainstream media feeds them, and they actually think it's all true. And they actually think in their head. Well, why would they lie to me? The New York Times still hasn't printed anything about Eric Swalwell having the Chinese honeypot How is that? Not news?

If you attack a trump supporter wearing a maggot hat. Well, he had it coming to him. No problem. You could burn down the whole block. If you're a black lives matter Supporter, no problem. But if you are a trump supporter, and you burn a black lives matter, Banner. Well, then that's a hate crime. I think the black lives matter. Group is a group. You if you just listen to what they say at their protest rallies, it sure sounds like hate to me. Sounds like they hate cops. Sounds like the head America. Sounds like the Hey white people. Sounds like the head an awful lot of people. While they're trying to tell you that it's not about hate. I don't know. I mean, have you have you gone to another rally? I'm I went to. Ah, March.

It's wearing a mask during a pandemic. People react very strongly to government intervention that targets behavior choices, particularly when they view those behavior choices as only being about protecting themselves if they view that, as paternalist. Sick. There's really strong opposition is the problem, then with the messaging, and this isn't like wearing a seat belt that's meant to protect. You think the messaging has been inconsistent and confusing, And there's just intuitive sense in which it feels like wearing a mask is to protect yourself. We call it personal protective equipment for that reason, and we think a lot about health workers wearing masks to protect themselves. But even health workers are wearing masks in part to protect their patients. Not unlike see Belle's master, viewed by some as not being manly, a cz exhibiting a sort of fear. And finally, there are also similarities to condom use these health related behaviors. Maybe Sena's conveying. I think I might be diseased, or I think you might be diseased, so there's a lot of work around. Retooling social meaning of bringing out a condom to mean everybody does. This is what we do to protect each other. It doesn't mean that I think anything about myself or anything about you. Would it be better if the federal government mandated it, The federal government has really limited authority over public health and disease control in this country. It's really the seats that hold the reins, and then they could delegate that authority to local governments. If, for example, the CDC trying to issue a nationwide mask order it would be challenged in court. I think it would most likely be struck down because Congress hasn't given the CDC.

"Dr bream X. candy is the founding director of the anti racist research and policy center at American University his latest book is called how to be an anti racist at the Commonwealth club recently candy was asked how we can talk about racism and anti racism in a way that helps people understand where they fall it's not who a person is it is what a person is doing in that moment and people change and so people when when we're talking about health care they can speak from an anti racist perspective then we talk about criminal justice they they think that black people are dangerous but then we talk about education they believe that inequity stem from resource inequities there but then when we start talking about climate change there like what climate change right this is not affecting the global south more than the global north right it's all two million people are distinct when it comes to different issues but then also even on the same issues even in the same speech even in the same paragraph of the same speech people can say both racist and anti racist things that was a problem extended professor and author of the recent book how to be an anti racist so doctor board your response there that people can kind of move in and out of that place based on the issues are addressed yeah exactly and and I think who we talk about race is very difficult for some people to talk about race this is shut down and so just like the concept of justice justice we talk about justice at EPA you know back in ninety one they saw that as threatening and so in some cases when you say well no we want justice a justice means going back looking at some of the things that distributive kinds of of of challenges and and policies that that have legacy issues that go back so when we talk about race and racism in an eight when the when the environment just as groups wrote that letter to the big ten back in ninety one not the football became the the green groups they will call big cancel your youngsters idea back way back when a lot of the groups got offended how dare is a look at your boards all right is it yeah there's a look at the staff always year look at you yeah yeah Jen is yeah so we now call you races we just saying what you're doing is not in working in an IBM is a will this some of them said well because all the gringos are not this is not a broad brush they're different just like the religious induced different is a well you know we got to make some changes we don't go for insults did someone say well how dare you call us races we only party and so you see some of that is so you can look at that that to deck three of who has been out front moving things in trying to address things and trying to reach out and trying to you know bring in partners in collisions and alliances in the center and and and who is not and I'm not gonna calling you names but I could and but I don't have to if you're engaged with some some of these organizations some of these groups we had to fight our oldest civil rights organization not only name but you know the initial we had to fight them because it will work on environmental issues I would say are you are you concerned about black people breathing and then what it took twenty years for the for our mainstream so right organization to get on board with this issues of environmental just because they were saying all you're trying to shut down jobs we say no we want people have good jobs safe in terms of the workplace and sent flying community we want the fence line communities to be safe as well as well as the workers when we start explaining to them what we're talking about is it all we get it and so as I said that converges alls of conservation environmental groups and now civil rights human rights rules on two different tracks so so and and what we say this needs to converge we talk about access to clean air and clean water clean space having schools that are not fence line with a refinery who in their right mind would do something like that we say we know who happens but you have to go very far Richmond or you go on a South Bay or in Houston you know see this obvious high

S. nonprofit maintains close ties to senior Iranian government officials and has been the subject of public scrutiny for its efforts to broker meetings between America and Iranian officials what do you want to bet that Valerie Jarrett as part of this operation would you would you bet against it I would as Obama administration sought to into nuclear accord with Iran and I a C. after the central part of what Obama National Security Council official Ben Rhodes and bends part of this crew to describe as the administration's echo chamber a network of Obama administration officials and outside organizations disseminated talking points to reporters to bolster the case for the deal the dom played around sponsorship regional terror operations now there's more to this but there's your take away do you remember that we brought that we brought that to you on the show when it happened they were bragging about it the radio by not knowing that they run a hidden cellphone Ben Rhodes reading about how he misled the media on the Iran deal now we got those clowns it on our hands or wander about there's like parents Flettner draws around are talking points and they were they thought that was funny and I thought that was very much beneficial to making the American people think that the Iran nuclear deal was something we should be doing nothing could be further from the truth now how many of you listening to me right now picked up on the sentence what I said David writes breaks down the most important news about the enemies of freedom here and around the world in this comprehensive morning newsletter did anybody out there picked up the reason I ask is it's it's embedded in this piece and it has nothing to do with I personally I prefer this up anyway so I apologize for that I should've aligned it out now this is quite serious though this is this is enemies of America in bedded in America and coloring the news such that the folks out there that are gonna be voted for president come November our getting misinformation and I dare I say that Donald Trump has almost made the fake news that would pretty much has made it it's a cliche he never really explains it and I would argue that when Donald Trump is at a mish on out there I'm a rally missions but if you want to call it a campaign Bob on the stump whatever what is out there doing his thing in a in a city before thirty thousand people he needs to explain in more detail what fake news is now he's always I I understand where it's coming from it's always fake news releases looked all also the crowd the said only thirty people here that kind of thing or of the season something I said out of context yes that's straight up fake news straight a propaganda many times but please bring this to the people dial the stuff right here about how the people are not being told about the fifth columnists in our country and boy I'll tell you whoever's helping with the speech is right in the speech of suggesting things there's no doubt in my mind he's the final arbiter on that he gets the speech and says I'm not gonna say that I will say this or when it's on the teleprompters him go off is he he's off script now but somebody's a put some of the stuff in there because the American people don't know this they don't know this they don't know why they think certain things about Iran I'm this using a ran as a case pointer but for example fox is been all over this and you would of known as had you not watch five Iran they painted pictures of the American flag an Israeli flag up it was on a Bob up some type of a protest going on enough of it was to rant but have been American Versteeg or whatever it's called over there and they painted a huge so what they wanted is the people at this protest to be walking on those flags because that's one of the greatest in such a composite we have in the middle eastern world if you're starting middle eastern studies we're somebody takes their shoe throws the true hits you with us with Russia George Bush up bottom of your shoe is filthy that kind of thing take your shoes off and you're going to prayers don't I anyway the bottom line is that either one of them walking on this they would walk on it they went out of their way to walk around the flag of Israel the flag of the United States of America some dead and they were being jeered by the people that went out of their way to walk around and you really really really had to go on your way to walk around if you see this at check it out it's on the videos over on Facebook that these are the Iranian people that do not hate America of which they are the majority they don't hate Israel they want to get back in with the western civilization family of us civilized man and they do not want to be ruled by straight up Islamic fascism any more and god bless them for that now are it's time for us to use this I would say is one was called the the flash point in the Iranian revolution now what what they're up against is more to this review this piece here but why is the zombie media not caring this information about the senators Tom cotton Ted Cruz Mike brown that will of what they're trying to do here which is expose Islamic fascism be using our state media our state American prob the media to dumb down the people why not I don't know either I'm I'm doing the best I can and maybe you should too maybe you should be helping disseminate this information the forget you are the media or comes down to it in recent weeks and I AC and that don't forget is the is this is an Iranian operational national rainy and American council which is analogous to say care council on American Islamic relations which is straight up terrorist operation so in recent weeks as propaganda operation is distributed information condemning the trump administration's killing of top Iranian general the psalm Solomonic which was analogous to killing Heinrich Himmler but the psychotic left and he's a rainy and fifth columnists don't like that the end I AC sponsored talking points repeated the Iranian regime's own propaganda regarding the stripe prompting the lawmakers to seek an investigation into potential violations by the end I AC of US law but what by the way with this a prompting the lawmakers it's those three guys three guys so far that needs to be a hundred guys in the sun born the middle of a long war no one is going to point out factor that these Iranian people use boarding that flag stepping on it not going going out of the way not to step on American flight out of respect really want freedom or the is really those people are being shot torture front of other people all of not backed up that's what this is Pravda government is supported for.

ABC news. welcome to science in action from the BBC world service with Beaverton peas and this week were throwing cold water on the widely circulating ideas that earth two point zero has been discovered but we weighed into the debate about why a watery atmosphere is so interesting we called me of that right now with the music awards for the surface we expect said giving that hot water vapor in the atmosphere the temperature is compatible with condensation and we've warm reception for an icy visitor from another part of the galaxy the comet this just be discovered that's a relief from beyond the bounds of the site a system boy have they found an amazing object for us to study this is going to come down as one of the most famous comic a national history before that let's contemplate the creation of a new life a truly remarkable process a single bulleted sell the egg when first loss stocks subdividing constructs an incipient life support system that will plug into the uterus using cells on the outside wall on the inside more cells form the primitive tissue that will become the fetus until recently only the first seven days off to fertilize ation could be seen in the lab up to the stage an embryo implants but worked fine actor lane isn't a good good so at Cambridge university showed how those experiments could be extended in cross where up to nearly fourteen days revealing key moments in this embryonic transformations but most jurisdictions band experiments beyond fourteen days for ethical reasons. now the paper this week from the university of Michigan describes an approach using techniques from stem cell biology to simple components of an embryo without actually starting with conventional conception or on a tiny microfluidic chip flooring with nutrients and by chemicals. the result is an ability to study key aspects of development at this critical stage without violating the ethical norms of biology so I called Magdalen isn't it could go in California where she said to get a new lap this hearing similar ideas to get her reaction to this new method stem cells apparently working out for themselves how to copy conception well I think that is absolutely incredible this self organization that we are now witnessing. in a culture dish that we put embryonic stem cells and they know how to self organize is something that's and it's incredible for all of us and a scientist as well and we still try to understand how they know how to self organize so that structures that we are developing king Dunlap also are composed of not just one type of stem cells between two that these two or three distinct type of stem cells to one type of stem cells will make the future baby to the body the other type of stem cell will make the placenta and the third type of stem cell is supposed to make a yolk sac within reach them then the employer would be developing so when you put this three types of stem cells together how the salt from each other and then they was self organize within each other with each other through I dialogue chemical and mechanical dialogue to make something bigger and more complex shots within three four days it's just unbelievable so I often when I teach my students compare it to the room of interesting people and so you do not need to foster those collaborations between them it's enough if you provide a wine and good foods and nice music at they will start to talk to themselves and they would make fantastic conversation to twenty to something big so what's the wine and music that's being provided in this. lewd experiment this interest. so here is actually different that's what we have provided in our laps so in our case we provided three types of stem cells and make them interact here with this new paper new discoveries which is fantastic it's very different system this is only one single type of stem cell human embryonic go to pot and stem cell and you provide more different growth factors that stimulate specific response although says to them to build the structures in one microfluidic device and team to seconds John that you provide. tracks which is Stelmach tricks in which those cells grow which parts of the embryo Ave making in this experiment in this specific experiment to use the human the employee fault and stem cells to make two parts of the embryo more one is called a P. blasted this is that potter to which would provide the cells of the to the future body and the second one is called I'm young so that was as neat into decision at this one cell fate decision taken into tomato that speech some sense to make people us and other cells to make an onion SO two structures are formed here and this is the way to an embryo develop this is not just the body there's going to be born this this stocks revolve but also that sank in which it's grows the amniotic sac plus the sensa on it all comes back to the same mag yes absolutely all these three factors come from the same access embryo for the first two days of its life have to make those three components and make for is a progenitor cells like mother sells for just three components and then at the time of implantation development those progenitor cells start to make those components so you are right the first keepod to serve because the part it will make the future body the embryo and to one will make placenta and the third would make you and in this system that we are talking about today at placenta has not been a produced but only departed will make an embryo and departed to make an ambient there are these prices is like developing the primitive streak which I think is an important part generate genesis so called gastrulation which is a process I don't understand that these are persons if you'd like to understand and I'm wondering if using the stem cells you can look at some of these later developmental price this is without the ethical yes he's definitely does small does that already exists our to really look at this and people seem plantation stages and looking at the processes of gusts relation of some aspects of process of guest relations in culture and stacks them useful for debts and to. indeed just this little day fourteen or were not apply here because Donald yes if you could add a in the placenta would they be Ambrose wow only if you add it in a sensible way so I don't think that this is not simple answer to that question one would have to develop the whole embryo structure from the very beginning for doe says to interact with each other in the right way so we do not have yet such a mall that in human we build such amount that in mouse and does that have all three components and even this small those that have all three components that wanted to make placenta yolk sac and the and the embryo they do not develop much fretting culture Dan and Dan Beyonce seven stage of construction. as my dilemma was keen to underline the structure is made in the new experiments do not amount to embrace and they lack the ability to survive long even with the best artificial support but it's the only days and in principle only don't see why future scientists couldn't construct embryo ease that more completely resemble the natural thing in which case the fourteenth day rule could become more relevant for guidance I tend to ask this is Hank Greely from Stanford University it's really hard to tell you have to decide is this an embryo for purposes of either the law or the guidance the regulations the guidelines that cetera. and to do that you have to need to figure out what it is and classify it I think the only way you could really be sure is a way that nobody wants to try at this point. if you took one of these things and you moved it into a woman's uterus and it turned into a baby well it's an embryo. but that's an experiment that you don't want to try because it would be insanely risky for the baby and it's typically not a good legal strategy. so what do we do I think we try to figure out just how close to an embryo. this thing or these things are or aren't my own preference would be to see a lot more work in non human primates. in a non human primate if you made one of these things are colored an embroidered for now although I think there's a lot of argument about what kind of terminology to use for them if you made a rhesus monkey embroidered and you implanted into any transferred it into the uterus of a rhesus monkey. and it turned into a baby monkey or didn't turn into a baby monkey we wouldn't be nearly as concerned but it would give us some information about what these things can do it wouldn't be perfect information because species very from each other especially in reproduction. at least it would tell us something right now we don't really know how far these things could go and the only experiment that would really tell us is one we don't want to do I presume one way to deal with this is just to say you cannot do these kinds of experiments but the fact that scientists trying it I presume is well motivated that they feel they can learn things from these embryo aids that they can't learn from embryos that's right and what they can learn is the details of early human embryonic development that might help them figure out how to limit or prevent miscarriages stillbirths developmental problems as well as being scientists also just interested in understanding how things work but for the rest of us the key thing that they could learn as things about early human development that could help people have healthier babies for example there are some things some substances that are really bad for early developing embryos right now the only way we have to test for those is half pregnant women eat them or take them as drugs and see what happens that's not a wonderful way to determine whether something is toxic to embryos if in fact these things act like embryos but aren't embryos you could test new drugs on if he could test the little might on them and see what happens in a way that could help you improve the health of born babies improve the success of pregnancies that I think is the powerful moral argument for the research those are things that we wouldn't want to do with actual human embryos even if we could keep them alive long enough a because the results would potentially be damaged babies so it sounds to me like you've you feel as a watching brief on this what kind of change would make you want to rethink your attitude I would be really disturb if the next paper showed up a more fully developed longer to. term embryos save seven we Cambria that look like and had gene expression patterns like. a seven week human embryo we only know about seven week human embryos from the occasional miscarriages because we don't do research with the actual embryos but if a second fake embroidered seven weeks looked..

"To the forum I'm Michael Krasny it's not enough to be against racism more to not consider ourselves races argues American University professor Ebonics candy instead we must actively be anti racist and fight for racial equality carries the book is called how to be an anti racist and in it he examines what he's learned from anti the anti racist research and policy center at American University which he's a founding director as well as from his own life as a black man and he joins us now to share his philosophy of anti racism welcome to the program it's a pleasure to be on the show glad to have you here and I guess we'll begin with maybe some semantics because racism is a word that has probably it's one of those words or we'll talk about that has too many meanings to too many people and often depending on the subjectivity but you're talking about anti racism anti racism falls into an entirely different category it does and and so I I define an anti racist as someone who is expressing an anti racist idea was supporting an anti racist policy with their actions and and I define an anti racist ideas any idea that says the racial groups are are equals in any anti racist policy is essentially a policy that is leading to racial equity so meaning anti racist say there's nothing wrong with any of the racial groups or even right anti racist portion support policies that lead to racial equity makes perfect sense with then you get into the well the powder keg of the word racist which of course is a statement of many people Jordan's over you can get a new definition here. yeah I think that. many Americans don't don't realize how and why the term racist became a pejorative term became an attack. came a term that imagine that someone who is being racist is a bad person this is largely been an effort among racist themselves to sort of define racist in a way as if it's worth it as basically a two as if it's an attack to give an example Richard Spencer who's. coined the term all right who helped organize the Charlottesville unite the right rally on two years ago he once said racist isn't a descriptive term it's a pejorative term it's the equivalent of saying I don't like you but racist is a descriptive term it describes when someone is saying a racist idea meeting someone is saying there's something wrong or right or inferior or superior to a particular racial group it describes when somebody is supporting a policy that's leading to racial inequity a lot of this is historical weight I mean people think of races they think of Klansmen wearing hoods and that sort of thing and they don't necessarily want to be identified with that but they can be identified perhaps with more subtle racism and sometimes the gap between the two is not necessarily as. perhaps the monster ballistic maybe I remember when I first read the autobiography of Malcolm actually said white people need to go a paraphrasing course in clinics and learn about what racism is and be educated about racism so they can become better human beings are less racist and I think there is some value to that but you talking about a much broader context here meaning your work for example you've taken on some pretty iconic figures and said they said some pretty Frederick Douglass for example or for that matter of Barack Obama some things that are racist well if I define a racist idea as I do as any idea that suggest there's something inferior or superior about a racial group that there's something wrong with the racial group then then in fact people who are good people people who I admire people who were abolitionists who were civil rights activist also imagine that there was something wrong with black people to give an example as you know during the abolitionist era some abolitionist like someone is radicals William Lloyd garrison believed that slavery was literally making black people into proves that literally enslaved black people were brutes there was something wrong with insulate people as opposed to slavery being a de humanizing institution and not necessarily making the people into sub humans you prefer insulate person to slavery just in terms of language languished expect us so what does that Turner fit into that because you say it should be inside a person because slavery implies no agency precisely in in that directly connects to how I define racist even anti racist and so to me I define I I like to use the term in slave person because generally speaking in slaves people resisted and literally had to be confined to slavery by violence and terror and so they were very very few if any people who literally were not resisting and we're not being confined by terror in the same way when it comes to. racist and anti racist every single individual on earth has the ability to resist racist power in policy in some Americans don't do it some people don't do it because they don't think racism is the problem because they think particular racial groups of the problem and you talk about making decisions almost an existential way moment by moment I sing about searching for example I don't get too heavy in the philosophy here but you know the idea that you can be thought defined as courageous for cowardly just by the moment your you can be defined I think you're saying as a racist or anti racist by the moment precisely and that's how I think we should we should define some would not we should not be saying this is who a person is we should be saying this is what a person is doing in the moment and the reason why that's critical is because when you sort of study the history of racist ideas and anti racist ideas you find the same person saying both racist and anti racist ideas in the same book in the same speech are you in the same article if so then how would you define that person you know in a general sense if they said both racist and anti racist ideas as you know currently we are some Americans who when it comes to criminal justice they're racist but when it comes to healthcare their entire races they support policies that lead to racial equity and so depending on the issue people can be racist or anti racist and that's why we should define it on a moment to moment basis based on what a person is doing can we maybe get into some of your ideas of how to be an anti racist because again people do see this pretty much in terms of color than in black and white largely. yeah I I think first and foremost we have to recognize that the heart beat of racism itself has always been tomorrow and what I mean by that is slaveholder slave traders Jim crow segregationist even white nationalists today all denied that they were racist all denied that their ideas were racist all denied that there were policies were racist all consistently said I am not racist and in contrast that the the heart beat of anti racism is concession is admitting that you know it it's hard to grow up in a culture in a society in which we're taught to believe there's something wrong with particular racial groups in which we're taught to explain racial inequity by saying these people have more because they are more for us to not think those ideas at times and so when are anti racist or should say someone striving to be anti racist is charged with being racist for something they said or did they don't flippantly respond I'm not racist they say well let me assess that idea based on a definition of a racist idea and then you know what that idea was racist you know what I was being a racist but you know what I'm going to change and that person who is seeking to right to self identify in change is one who is an anti racist I used to hear the argument from African American friends said you can't be African American to be racist because you're not hegemonic you don't have the power you're essentially outsiders but you as a centre carving out a kind of new territory here with respect to the whole lexical definition in fact. and I admire the fact you bring in your own personal experiences you say you gave a speech. when you were a kid give a speech you got the lot of the audience rousing and applauding and so forth when you look back on it it was racist the worse and and I think that. we can we should not conflate black people in general Gisele collectively black people do not have power in this country obviously but it's a different question whether individual black people are power and I would argue every individual black person like every individual white and Asian and native in like the next person has the power to resist and some do not resist racism because like me when I was in high school I thought that the problem was black people so when I gave this speech senior year of high school in which I was condemning black youth I was saying black youth continue to climb a high tree of pregnancy black youth the most feared in society as it was their fault black youth don't value education as if white you value education more than black you as if white youth are had a had a had a more stronger connection to recognizing the importance of education in black you even though we had no data to prove that and so I reproduce these ideas and spent my senior year of picking up the problem with black people as a black person as opposed to racism in anyone who is not resisting racism is being racist so it's not the racist ideas policy your people it's only racist and anti racist. so I see him as anti racist and racist people this racist and anti racist policies in this racist and anti racist ideas and what does this mean in terms of your own development I mean you were able to look back on that high school speech of yours and pretty much find yourself culpable and then you will actually I think in college and thank you went through kind of another phase in this metamorphosis of years looking at white says maybe being from another planet of literally. yeah I mean I I arrived at college thinking that the fundamental racial problem with black people then eventually when I particularly experienced the election of two thousand in Tallahassee Florida as as a student and I watched and heard the stories of of of white police officers and and and and white judges and and white our poll officials basically suppressing in spoiling and and preventing black people from voting on in that moment to selection and and so I then thought you know what the racial problem is black people and white people there's something wrong with white people and black people as opposed to them will happen to be members of the human race to. as opposed to but then eventually I began to see that the problem actually was it groups of people the problem was fundamentally racist power in policy. and let me get into this from another angle because I remember reading a book I know you're familiar with feral cruise is a crisis of the Negro intellectual any kind of divided African American culture into material culture of spiritual culture it was like a duality and then you think about Booker T. Washington and W. B. A. B. DU bois there's also that kind of divide between the approach that we ought to have it in other ways of thinking about things that ARE bifurcated that are here do you have something similar to that it also made me think of Martin Luther king and Malcolm X. is always kind of bifurcation and you're saying racist anti racist that's because I for catia that's simple it is it is I mean it it it really is that simple I mean because for instance when it comes to ideas there's no in between racial hierarchy and racial equality and and and racist ideas connote racial hierarchy anti racist ideas connote racial equality when it comes to policies there's no in between policies that are leading to racial inequity and policies that are leading to racial equity. there's no such thing as a race neutral policy all policies are either creating equity or inequity and so I think it is that simple at the same time being that complex you have specifics in you work I believe about how you can most effectively be anti racism work for rations races as to the racial equality clearly some of that out sure so so once we sort of get over our denial and once we admit as I tried to do in in in how to be an anti racist aways which we've consumed racist ideas and and once we start then we next try to sort of a drop into a racist ideas that there's nothing wrong with any of the racial groups that the racial groups are equals and then we look out at our society of all of these racial disparities and if we can't explain those disparities by saying there's something wrong with the racial groups then the only other alternative is racist policies to give an example right now the black unemployment rate. what one of the lowest in history is still about twice as high as the one hundred point right there then add and some would say the cause of that is something wrong with the black workers they lazy they don't want to work they prefer welfare the other alternative is racist policy and so once we say there's nothing wrong with black people or any other racial group then we as anti racist begin to identify and challenge the policies then we become part of the movement meeting part of organizations supporting policy makers were trying to institute anti racist policies you also see capitalism as really racism you don't separate the two I don't and I'm I'm taking.
