"The perpetrators to be held to the highest court of law, held accountable for what they do. Because the victims of these crimes and their families, they can't just unplug from others. It's a reality. They have to live with. This person is either permanently paralyzed or killed because of this terminal. That got away with it. And if you have a court system, this is like Francis excuses for them unless them get away, then of course there's this misconception that, oh, black people are the favored minority and therefore they can do whatever they want in the court system whether to look at them. And let them get away with it, and we Asians are stuck having to unite with them. No, I don't want to unite with black people because it's certain certain such. You see, you see that vicious cycle that keeps going on. Yeah. And from my neck of the country, given my involvement and activism on the stop AAPI hate platform, I've noticed in myself and in some of my fellow activists, when we discovered that the assailant was a black man, we're a little reticent, we're a little reluctant to dwell on the ethnicity of the assailant. Because we're trying to work towards the same end as you are. We're trying to go for black and Asian unity. And then we get called out by the media, especially the white people immediate. Oh, well, interesting how you fail to mention that the assailant was black, right? And some of me, I get that I own that, but let's not miss the fact that most of the perpetrators against AAPI people have not been black. They've been white men, so I think part of my reticence is based on not wanting to feed this false narrative. Which historically you've already mentioned that several times a month. Yeah, it's divide and conquer. It's always been to the benefit air quotes of the greater white community to see the people of color communities turn against each other. Exactly. Right? Yeah. That's a sad reality. And you know the things that also that also why I don't get too caught up in statistics is because statisticians even say it all the time. You can make stats do whatever you want. You can make numbers do whatever you want with them. If you want to make it look like mostly this group of people or that group people are doing it or not doing it, you can do whatever you want. So that's why I look past the numbers. And that's unlike, what about Abu at the heart of the situation? Because at the end of the day, if anybody with any decency can not just look at that and be like, oh, well, I have no remorse for them because curvature is different, social distancing may be a little bit. We talk about representation, right? Before, sadly, when one criminal or element from the black community does it, it does a lot of time, give this representation of, see, that's the black community for you. There are things like that. And then those same people that would is how you can tell whether somebody is presenting information with integrity or just trying to put a manipulative narrative. Is if there is a good story, right? If there's a good story where black people are helping the Asian community or whatever. And they don't want to give reluctant to present that and things like that and they're like, yeah, but you think about who's also doing, you know what I'm saying? Like I see that all the time the current session is just like a lot of times you realize, wait, these are troll accounts. Like the person behind it may not even be Asian. They have those cases at all. So the rotate at the heart of the situation is really what people want to receive, right? It's also what people want to receive, but they want to receive that the truth is just there are elements of black community that have these ideas from before fed by the idea that Asian people are going to be secret loans and this they're trying to take over black community. If they're constantly fed that all day and sadly, from some black leaders that have major platforms influences, they sell that

"Community. And I think that's what's led to a lot of this violence and a lot of the pushback and division between the black and Asian community. You know, bringing up the whole 1992 LA uprising riots. I happen to be befriended by an LA times reporter who was ethnically black and Jewish, kind of an interesting combination. And his beat was the demographics of Los Angeles. He contacted me when I was still a pastor, and he said, hey, you know, we're coming up to the ten year anniversary, not the 20 year. The ten year anniversary of segue and I was there in the immediate aftermath of the uprising, and I was there when the black pastors and the Korean pastors were all pow wowing, right? They're all getting together. And they're making these big, sweeping promises about how they're going to start doing intra congregational activities and outreach to start to kind of blend communities, how they're going to work together to heal the very things you're talking about among and he goes, okay, so I'm in the midst of writing a ten year anniversary piece for the LA times. And so I went back. I wrote down all the promises those Christian leaders made. Black and Korean, right? Reverend fog. I'm really sad to tell you that not one of the promises has been acted on in ten years. Okay? And this is the kind of shocking part to me. He said, well, I can't put this in my article because this sounds too spiritual, but he goes, I'm now personally convinced that the key to the healing of the rift between R two communities, it's not going to be fixed because they passed laws against being racist or to pass laws against being discriminatory or to pass laws that only so many Koreans can own so many liquor stores, you know. Block radius, or they have to live in the community, something like that. He says, no, I think it's more of a spiritual thing. And I'm convinced that it's people like you is congregations like the one that you are leading that have the key to the healing of this divide in our city. I remember this amount because I thought, well, this guy is not religious at all. And yet he's kind of seeing this in a kind of a meta sort of way. And kind of throwing up his hands in despair because he's saying, so if the spiritual leaders of the two respective communities made promises and in the last ten years haven't acted on them, then what hope does our city have? I would love to find out ten years after that conversation with him. The 20 year anniversary, which we just marked, if he has seen any movement, I don't even know if he's still works for the paper, right? So I think right after the uprising in 1992, there was a lot of express concern and stated intentions about seeing some movements that were not just stuck. And yet I don't know, you know, I was at the segue event in LA that had been in actually sponsored and there was a lot of representation by the African American Christian community. So that was encouraging. But sometimes, you know, I get a little jaded. I don't know about you. I go to these events and, you know, it's kind of there for public display, but in the day to today interactions between African Americans and Asian Americans. If you go into the brains and the hearts of the people in both of these pools, I'm wonder if any real change, any real unifying has happened, so I'd love to hear your perspective. Now, you're in the Deep South, right? Yes, yes, I am. I'm from Durham, North Carolina. I live in dirty. Okay. Okay, so, I mean, I mean, you went to online school in San Francisco. I mean, in your neck of the Woods, what are you seeing? Not just California, not just Los Angeles, but what are you seeing? Is there much of a Asian American presence in Durham, North Carolina? Do you see any tensions? If there are? I got you. So there's this documentary that's out now, this is called far east Deep South, right? And it was put together by a group that they were going to talk about the Asian American presence in the south, especially in the Jim Crow south. I mean, it's a really interesting documentary what you would see is a lot of the Asian businesses when they opened up in the south. They weren't allowed to do business in the white neighborhoods and stuff like that. And they were pretty much caught up in between the crossroads of two communities and it was typically white versus black, whatever, right? And one thing I also want to specify too is that any form of unity that we do, it has to be about all of us wanting to connect not like, okay, we're going to try to unify Asian and black people against everybody else, right? Because it's never really. That's really not unity. That's just battle building, whatever. So any movement that involves reunifying to be against a certain race of people in the beginning and end of that movement, that's where you're going to have division. And you're going to have the faulty foundation, if you will, or unity. But anyway, in the south here, I know like in my state, I looked at my statistic and he said, things the highest population of Asians is mostly Vietnamese. And again, I got to do more research on that, but I know within my city, the rally derm, Chapel Hill, kind of a triangle area you call it. It's a growing region. So there's a lot of new people coming in and out of the state and things like that. It's one of the fastest growing regions in the country. So you're going to see different influxes of people here and there. And yeah, this is pretty much I can say right now. I can't put it Justin and it's not like a high population.

"On Jordan, is someone that invited me onto his, I don't know if you call it a podcast, but it was an Instagram Live conversation with a fellow Asian American journalist association member Michelle Lee to talk about the black and Asian American need to come together, especially in the face of a lot of the violence against both of our communities and I am just happy to swing the favor back in your direction of mind because I think that conversation with you and Michelle just put me on notice about who you are and where you're coming from. And I thought, you know what, my audience needs to hear from them on too. So I just, first of all, want to welcome you to my show. Oh man, thank you for having me on here. You know, when you talked about that piece, you're talking about a really grand piece because that's archive that got lost. You know, you got lost and so serious. You got lost and I Instagram was never able to recover that piece. But one lady she screenshotted some of the moments on there. So on that live, I did it. I came back to the video and said, hey, y'all, that Instagram piece did not get saved, unfortunately. But somebody had a screenshot. I did a little voice-over about what we talked about in that's it. So I actually want Michelle back on the program. On my Instagram Live, but yeah. You know what, two things. Number one, since that conversation, Michelle has got the big promotion and now she's at a morning show host instead of a weekend a host. So she's getting into the studio at like 5 in the morning. I'm not sure it's at the same station. Number two, I would say, once we drop this episode on my show, you know, you can certainly share that link with your listeners and your followers because I feel like the conversation that we want to have today, even though we're missing dear, wonderful Michelle. Is really about the same stuff. It is, it is very much so. It's about the same thing. And what we're talking about is black and Asian unity. And, you know, how I even got involved in the movement to begin with. So here's a little background about me. I'm an architectural drafter, a designer by day. So I'm at my office right now, conference room, and actually after this, then I'll get back on some more drawings, right? So I went to school online and this is college in San Francisco, you know, San Francisco is where a lot of these hate incidents have really been going on. So I first started off with a hashtag San Francisco for one of my pictures. I had up there just for like architectural stuff. And then I was like, I want to say what this hashtag is doing, right? I just wanted to see what this hashtag was about, you know, San Francisco. One thing I saw was mister Martin park case and I said, oh, wow. I was like, first man, this is a really sad incident. That's the first thing. It's like, this is that incident. Then I saw in the comments section. It was like, this goes on all the time, you know, black people that I just, you know, every sort of anti black thing you could imagine was going on a conversation. I was like, wait a minute. Since when did this become like a trend, you know, that black people just go out and attack Asians. Then I started doing a little more research and I looked at numbers and I looked at different videos and I was like, oh, okay, so this is a problem. This is a problem. It goes deeper than 2020. It even somehow correlates back to 1992, which this past may the week of sai boo on my podcast, I dedicated that whole week to four 29. I remember it. And we had different people come on there, a lot of the lady from face LA, think and she was on there. And so many other people stand with Asians now with Asian Americans, they had so many affiliates. We did this weeklong podcast where we had them come out there and they talked about what they were doing at that time. What was going on during their time of the riots and things like that. So I was like, okay, we opened that space to talk, right? So we opened that space to talking. As we go on long in this podcast, you'll probably hear more of because this stuff doesn't happen overnight, right? This hatred, there's a lot of key components to it. There's a lot of misunderstandings. There's a lot of, I think the drill word you could put down is fear. It's in a lot of fear driven things of life. They're coming over to take over our neighborhoods. We got to react to it. This person's coming into store because they're trying to steal and they're trying to attack us, you know, things like that, total misunderstandings of each other's community. And I think that's what's led to a lot of this violence and a lot of the pushback and division between the black and Asian community.

"Dot com. I mentioned last week that my 50th high school reunion would take place in Sacramento, California, on Saturday, August 20th. I'm recording this introduction on Friday, August 12th, so by this time next week, I'll be driving up I 5 in my rav four using the 6 hour drive to catch up on my favorite podcast. I'm purposely not listening to any over the next 7 days in order to create a stockpile for my trips up and back. I also said that I'll be having a mini reunion with doreen. The woman who was my girlfriend during my last year at mcclatchy. Earlier this week, as I was thinking about seeing her again, I said to myself, hey, wouldn't it be awesome if my listeners could hear just a few minutes of my conversation with doreen? I mean, I could try to convince everyone that she is still one of the nicest people on earth, but even if they just heard a snippet of our upcoming conversation, I know the data agree with me. But if doreen hasn't changed much in the last 50 years, I knew that I just couldn't show up for our reunion and put my recorder interface. So I broached the subject with her that same day, reassuring her that I was perfectly fine if she didn't want to do this, and that I'm only suggesting recording a few minutes of our conversation. She got back to me the following day and graciously declined my suggestion. Mostly, it was because she wanted to be able to relax before, during and after our reunion. She's not only nice, she's very wise. I sometimes forget how comfortable I've become in sharing so many parts of myself in public. My four decades of being a pastor and a preacher didn't necessarily foster this penchant for being more of an open book. In fact, especially when I was just starting out, I felt the opposite compulsion. I mean, think about it. I was trying to convince folks in our church to trust me. My judgment, how I was interpreting the Bible and applying it to real life. Didn't I need to hide my flaws and floundering behind a facade of apparent perfection? If you count when I first served as a youth director at my home church right out of college, I was in some version of this lofty perch starting in 1976. It wasn't until 1991, some 15 years into being a pastor, that I finally began to see that my studied opacity was not only stunning my own experience of God's boundless and unconditional love and grace, it was also encouraging the members of our church to keep hiding in the shadows with me. I haven't seen my old classmates in ten years. I still marvel at how most of the old high school clicks had vanished by the time of our 30th reunion. Now I'm convinced that one of the reasons is because at that point in our lives, nobody looked young or cool or thin. Without the pressure to put up fronts, it seemed like most of us were finally free to interact as old friends and classmates. Fast forward now 20 years, and the ones of us still alive are now in our late 60s. I've no doubt that the fact that this will be our last official reunion won't be lost on anyone. But part of me is wondering how open and honest will all be next week. We'll some talk about their failed marriages or upended careers. Will some share about their tragedies and heartaches? Will any one of us express regrets about how they were in high school or where they find themselves at this particular milestone at this late stage in life? I know that a few of my classmates have stayed put in Sacramento and continue to be close friends. But most of us, even those who stayed in town have spent the last half century creating new families and finding new friends. Starting in 1977, the alumni officers have created opportunities for us to re gather every 5 years. Some folks still haven't attended a single one, and they probably won't show up to this last one. Others have come to just a few. I've probably been to most of them, even though I missed our 45th. So it's probably wise to temper my expectations in advance.

Ministry of Supply's Gihan Amarasiriwardena: 'The importance of comfort'

"When i think of ministry of supply i think of work wear comfortable work. Where but work. Where so i wanted to ask keyhan. How ships to work from home has impacted the business. Plus i wanted to dig into. How the brand's tech focus has evolved. Welcome key hunt traveling so much for being here for those who don't know the brand. Did i summit up. well Work where with a i guess. Comfortable slant how would you describe it as it was shaped at the beginning. Yeah yeah absolutely you know when we started out almost almost ten years ago. We were just witnessing ourselves just the explosion of performance materials. And how those made such a big difference in you know athletic. Wear right yeah moisture making fabrics etc and as we entered our professionalized we wanted to see that same comfort. Right of being able to be dry during the day being able to move with four stretch fabrics but also not having to go to the dry cleaner so we we designed an entire line of machine washable for way stretch suiting in including four of the office. You're traveling commute. And i think what's been interesting has been that in the past year while people aren't wearing dress shirts nearly as much as they used to northern wearing suits.

Welcome to the Dan Bongino show. I'm Dan Bongino. And, gosh, that feels good to say. Been a really long road. I never thought this would happen. And this moment is bittersweet. Mean bitter sweet in the real meaning of the phrase Bitter sweet, Not like Joe Biden says it where he screws it up and doesn't know what it means. But sweet because I get to talk to you now every day from 12 noon to three. On talk radio, which has been the heartbeat of this nation for decades now. But why is talk radio conservative talk radio specifically liberal. Screw it up. I tried that whole experiment with talk radio didn't really work. You know, we actually care about the issues. So we do this stuff and do it all the time and do it well, But why is talk radio the heartbeat of this nation? Why has it been for 30 years? Well, I could tell you most certainly isn't because of Dan Bongino. It's because of the greatest of all time. Titan of this industry, a giant Rush in Amman. That's the bitter part. Rush Limbaugh You're used to hearing for decades now me as well. We used to hearing his booming voice in your ear. This time block for 30 years. He's a giant. The Godfather. They say often, it's not just that Rush Limbaugh was the greatest player in the game. Rush Limbaugh was the greatest player in the game for 30 years. And it's not just that Rush Limbaugh was the M V P of the game for 30 years. Rush Limbaugh. Created the game. You know, you think of the greats in any business. Gretzky, Jordan, Babe Ruth. They had great 15 20 year runs. They weren't MVPs for 20 years. But they didn't invent basketball, hockey and baseball respectively. National conservative talk radio. Was practically invented by Rush Limbaugh. I want to say to the Patriots out there who've spent your time being educated, informed and entertained by the greatest talk radio host there ever will be for the last 30 years. Can't replace him. May sit in his time slot and it's the greatest honor of my life to do this. My first love has always been radio. But I can't replace him.

I think we are on the way home. Or are there and they They're like what is going to be doing. No way older. Okay have fun. So so for all your smugglers out now. That's the way to get into canada. I'm going deep in streets and the croissant. Yeah we had learned about this pastry called queen. Amman which is easy to say in to spell and it's a traditional pastry from quebec and it's basically. Oh i'm being told not from quebec. We have to start over. I don't think back yeah. I don't think they can do on their own. Okay let's start this over. It's basically a large. I wanna say like what twelve or fourteen inches round layered butter. Salt sugar dough situation. It's like a croissant but like times hundred. And it's just we i remember. We went to the shop there. It's called queen went to the shop. We just got a slice of pizza. Slice would be the word ends. Yeah i took a by. We're on the street. And i took up by an i was like. Why is everyone not eating one of three. Now i see i see the clouds opening up rainbow. Beam coming down on you is that it was a rainy weekend. We didn't quite think it was going to be that rainy. We left the hotel in the morning hotter. Rain jacket pouring cats dogs. But i was intent on going to clean all and buying an entire full round size of the pastry get there. It's all to see inside. I get a whole one. Which by the way is not even that expensive and the whole thing. I swear it weighs like went ten pounds. I mean it's like it is heavy and they put it in like in like a pizza box pizza sheet box. The thin kind of cardboard ahead a little reusable shopping down with a nylon one. I put it in there and like the skies opened up. I mean it was pouring. All i can do is think of my pork when i'm on that i intended to like bring back home and then freeze half of it. They have reasoning And then course. I stop so we spent the whole wrecks the day walking around. Well it turns out. We were in like the furthest place from any kind of public transportation in a us man. Rain jacket like cover up the bags. When i i mean it was like i would have done anything for this clean among anyway. The moral of the story is it did make it home and we did freeze half of it and we did eventually all of it and it was amazing and worth. I love the fact that you took your jacket off and put it around the queen as as save. You're your little prize that you had that you weren't going to give up. I was not going to give up. It was not going to be sigy no matter what so. That's a good plot for a book which transitions to our next segment books. We have the segment called literary lottie in. It's my own guilty pleasure and we ask each of our guests but their favorite book is. And why. And i can that to my repertoire. While you've probably read my already the hobbit and lord of the rings and the reason for that is i was i think actually johnny introduced it to me Maybe five or so years ago. And i had never read it. I had seen some of the movies but didn't really get any know why it was such a big deal and then i read the hobbit and i was like wow. This is amazing. And they're also it's so many mentions of food and the importance of breakfast and second breakfast in fact our decaf land is called elevensies and that is after elevensies and i just totally fell in love with the world and the stories and such a rich incredible world. And it's just a great story and we can talk anymore because you lump them together so you you've got a person who's going to critique that sounds like the stephen colbert Kind of level of intensity related to that. Because i'm in. I'm in your camp actually charlotte because i love the hobbit and started the lord of the rings trilogy and i ended up skipping around.

"It is perhaps difficult to altogether. Suppress an amount of derisive mirth. When the people's republic of china inveighs against the unfairness of a world subject to the whims of omnipotent higgins president xi jinping earlier made a series of statements to this effect also making some pointed remarks about the united states using its mighty commercial power to advance its political interests as such treachery obviously has never even occurred to beijing.

The united states is exercised. It is is a little premature. I think so it. This is an exercise in containment. Cise in trying to discredit us. Leadership and to discredit the sort of values norms of a global order which china repeatedly claims were set up by just a few powers and china wasn't one of them at the time

K. I've heard that bantered around tell me tell me your take on what I don't know if you take that is a good thing or a bad thing but we mean it is a good thing tell me about what you're feeling or the civilian a good one on what's happening in in Europe they Indiana okay they've just defaced the guy who fought against fascism better than anybody else in the world Winston Churchill they just defaced a statue of Abraham Lincoln what's going on in the UK yeah I mean first I want to say that I think a lot of people for the cost of a few months and even years in particular have been worried about the rise of China and what implications that has the kind of international politics but I think that what we see in the last week we can be annoyed about American cultural hegemony and how kind of American racial culture wars has not been kind of explosives and globally now I you know I love America to get a fantastic country by how much you can live to see thousands and thousands of people in Britain and central London Graham how about saying hands up don't shoot I want to make the militarized police forces in the world which is a pretty useful you don't you don't they don't have guns how can they shoot they don't have guns gov so I think what we've seen as a kind of an attempt to create this kind of homogenized marriage is about what it means to be black in the wild I think that it's been one that has been a staunch allies to be one of kind of racism oppression and victimization irrespective of the kind of nuances and complexities of specific country I think absolutely you know racism exists that needs to be contacted in response to the George Floyd killing for the first time and you know I think there was unity across the political spectrum put in Los Angeles saying that this was a you know a wrong thing and you know the mom's not been charged and you know people can debate about what charge I'm not should be back the end of the day about no way to justify a very positive thing okay what has now transpired to mail something very very very different we are seeing a what looks like to me a kind of contract would affect you western society acknowledged as is kind of the end of evil and hasten kind of racism I thank you for sending a really toxic and the moralizing message to a generation of young people who haven't had it sorry about that in times of racial equality progress that much more to be done but the narrative that is being told it's completely divorced from reality and I think it got much darker intentions a kind of consequences unless we feverishly grapple with what so what culture can you tell me what you think because I agree with you and you know everything that you're saying here leads me to the things that we have been investigating for a long time at least on on my program and that is this concerted efforts by a radical leftist group of of organizations and people that want to tear down the western world and capitalism it do you believe that that's what you're seeing over in the UK as well absolutely because you know it's something that it's not just spoke slowly out of the car because you see that in terms of the education system even in the you know fast looking at the similar thing that happened in American funds would be kind of compost free speech wars we've seen it with the gender divide I'm also in the U. K. we saw after the election until brexit which is eventually able slowing of the democratic system in order to kind of push fortified a gender and I think I don't wanna make too many connections why do you think it's all talk at the same underlying ideology how to eat and it's a full with that land on the western society and and she's you know many of these political upheavals are the opportunity opportunity to exploit that to kind of push forward a very logical left the gender I think it's I think it's really what I think at least in the U. K. we have a situation where the conservative party won the election and a lot of us thought about one opposes it saying in terms of pushing back against that but but yeah I think again as the north America how white now a monopoly on culture and they have very significant slaves in terms of the media and in terms of changing that narrative would be claiming a colorful positive and realistic representation of the last equal to the young people that these pictures will actually let you something that is still you know there's a lot more work to be done that so it is really concerning.

"Line from Amman Jordan hi Jane hi there so you've been looking all across the Middle East and you have found there are lots of special rules for this Ramadan tell us about some of them what do they mean for people what is the month when Muslims believe that god revealed the Koran to the prophet Muhammad so the most important part of all of this is prayer and normally those are communal prayers in almost all countries though now because of pandemic mosques are closed and large gatherings are banned so that basically means that people are praying at home now the other part of Ramadan big part is the social aspect because after fourteen or so hours of abstaining from food and even water at the fast is normally broken just after sunset when you gather with extended family and friends so that's curtailed as well and then normally into the night terror brown done shows with live music or people gather in cafes to play dominoes and other games and all those venues are shot so will the spiritual aspect remains no well it doesn't have that festive atmosphere than it normally does yeah one of the lovely traditions is it an emphasis on feeding poor people and in some places it's done in these big public gatherings is that going to be possible this year not in the traditional sense in Egypt for instance which is the most populous Muslim country in the region what people normally set up these big colorful tents with long tables where everyone's welcome to come and break the fast and a lot of the poor rely on these meals and particularly in times like this when a lot of them don't have work we spoke to a furniture shop owner in Cairo Chad outdoor mount and he says he used to do and after table outside the shop but because of the restrictions on social gatherings he camp this year let's listen to a bit of that but I'm going to go in with the hot well the VA does the gums are blah blah blah that's so he's saying that they packed up food and they tried to distribute it but he's not sure he's reaching everyone they used to and he says it's just not the same as as this year we feel that Ramadan isn't the same as it used to be Ramadan also means a lot for countries economies people travel they buy special foods is any of that happening well that too is really limited because there are those bans on travel and did some countries a relaxed curfews some places like the body of even opened up shopping malls but it's difficult people are trying to adapt though we went to the south of Jordan and the town of show back yesterday on the eve of Ramadan and that's where we found this pop up bakery for.
