So people across the political spectrum if there's a high profile political case people. When they start looking for someone when they start to realize on a second I, have a political case I need someone who knows how to defend me in the court of Public Opinion Anna Quarter Law and is not part of the system is not part of the entrenched insider system that a lot of lawyers are.

There because I'm sure you heard that before but like a a Richard Spencer as somebody you'd represented in general or a Jerry's hair to groups I generally stay away from one racist dis- don't like him So true racist I mean these days they're labeling anyone racist but I mean an actual racist and I don't want anything to do with the clan. Storm Front Richard Spencer none of those people and and otherwise I will not defend a generally I won't offend someone I think is guilty of serious crime. So the I have to believe they're innocent I won't defend them and in certain crimes, I won't represent unless I'm absolutely convinced of innocent. So Child Abuse I've never done the child abuse defense case have never done a rape defense case I've never done anything like that.

"Adversary I'm sure that there might be a little sympathy in their exactly I dealt with people in the domestic violence context where some assault victims so. On their life, well, one very vulnerable people are picked for salt in the first place so that that that's that's sort of an eggshell effect that takes place there, and then you have the effect of the assault can destabilize them in such a way that one of the reasons why you don't see some of those particularly child abuse allegations ever make it to court is they they tend to become witnesses that will be perceived as not credible. But. The reason is because of the psychological damage that was either they're already psychologically damaged and that's why they were targeted in the first place or the effect of the trauma has created that psychot- little psychological damage or reinforced it to a degree that, and now that was the case of this woman's story. As soon as I saw the basic allegations I was like, okay with probably the cases she has been victimized and she created a fantasy story to make yourself feel good to survive psychologically and she's also trying to survive materially by hiding the identity of the real father and she just combine the two and what she needs as. Mental health assistance but the politicians looked at it and they're like, oh, we can. We can sue Wesley Snipes. We can say Wesley Snipes is the Dad and I think some degree of racial prejudice played into that by the local Indiana officials who are I think mostly it was a desire for notoriety a desire for celebrity. So fascinating is when she they knew this from day one, I suspected it was ultimately to prove it. But when we got all the underlying documents which had come in and told them was that she listed the actual father's name and join us at one other person and she said it was Jesus Estrada. But you know as Wesley Snipes. So right away that should have been assigned and and then her whole story was that they'd had eight kids together. They'd been secretly married in May. In Mexico, the government had ordered it be kept a secret that conception of this particular child was almost like an immaculate conception he showed up at her door and blade outfits and told her what a great actor she was going to be. In order to to to test the accuracy of the these allegations are required to give physical descriptions of the father. There are forty five different things to identify. She couldn't identify any except one. She said Tattoos maybe, and the reason why he said maybe was because she didn't know if the blade tattoos were real.

Particularly, if you didn't fit within a minority group within a minority group, then you could did the there were programs to make sure you were protected. So if you're lower income and let in Puerto Rican and Mexican and African American not so much of your Asian not so much of your Jewish. But if you are any of those groups that were considered historically discriminated against then there were some programs to look after you and cultural you're embraced by the African American Latino groups on campus Mexican, American Puerto Rican groups on campus not. So if you're a working class white kid from the south at the Mid West the northeast. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. You fit in at all I remember this one student came up to me and said, well, I say Yale he's really thought deliverance was documentary of the south. I, had one student come up to me and say, well, why don't you wear cammo camouflage and go out and recruit some of your fellow students? I'm like well, we everybody's not you know making moonshine back in the hills you know the you know you get out of the Burt Reynolds nineteen seventies, movies all good movies, but not exactly descriptors of what happened and so I started we say we had some success with this movement got all this attention from the institutions, but then became clear that. This is how the institutions operate in general was one of the things other things I learned about the press I learned about how power operates I learned about how administrators and politicos think learned about how mass movements can be built I learned about how protest operations work, but one of the best lessons I learned was how the system buys off to set. So I remember sitting there once with a assistant dean who was basically making clear that as long as I played ball, they would form this. Little Committee in committee would make a review in the committee would just magically end up concluding what they had already decided should happen and and and in the exchange for my silence of about what was going on I would get into Yale, law. School. In my life was fully protected in this assistant yield Dean saying look Bob don't you want your kids to have the benefit of this in the future and was like, no, I don't want I would be horrified if my kid replace some kid like me or like Nicodemo. Or less anger Saul. Not, on, merit based on privileged position and so the because of that I, realized the only way to get yields attention was to leave in protest because nobody ever did the whole assumption was this is such a golden gift. That, you'll never give it up and so we can always compromise you. As a Kid I always liked Robert Frost poem. About choosing the lesser traveled path. And the, and so it was one of those kind of decisions I I remember people saying that most people. Don't realize the movie, Our town or the play our town, which talks about most people sacrificed who they are every day and they just don't realize it. So collect people forget to live while they're living and I thought it was one of those moments where I had to make a decision that was seminal to who I am and who I wanted to be..

"And at the time I thought Oh that's a smart little move. You know have the Dean right something to to get you to go there as opposed some other school and when I got there was only time I found out that that was very rare. Everybody got a form letter nobody got a personal note from the dean. And so then I realize, okay, he wanted us here. That was part of it. I quickly realized that there was a massive class gap between me and everyone else there. It was reinforced by culture. So very much an upper middle class culture affluent culture, but but northeastern and west coast wasn't I was used to Frat boy rich boy southern boy culture because of the scholarship, the private school I've had here in Chattanooga I knew that but this was a whole different animal. This was northeast west coast everything else was flyover country culture. So it was like the elite of the elite and leaving the mayflower and and things like that. Exactly Oh money real power. and. So I I had when I read the ill monthly magazine and they're talking about getting rid of need blind admissions and getting rid of need based financial aid. I realized that they could do that throughout the Ivy League and basically it would become completely exclusive and kids like me would never be able to get admitted there again. and. So if you other people formed a kind of a protest movement, a buddy of mine who's all he's to the left these days he's always always been left but he he he came up with a new titles called Port Yale Pay. His. He was always a thing like that Sammy Yourself Great Guy adopts poor adopt kids from all kinds of backgrounds. Now, that's the kind of guy he is and the he and another buddy of ours nicodemo who had grown up homeless on the streets of Newark City up until the age of seven. So he could tell stories the thing he liked to do a year was just sit down. At some random cafeteria table and starts wriggling with stories from what it's like to be five years old and homeless on the streets of new. York City and the winner how the Er Room is is your second home and so forth. The just amazing. Amazing Guy. So we started big protest movement and luckily for us David Lionheart, who is now the economic an economics editor at The New York Times was the Editor in chief of the Daily News, and he loved story and he put us on the front page and it was a crash course in so many things that I learned. Because the turned out that the what he understood was that the entire year administration it the only way they knew what was happening on campus through the Yale Daily News either daily news was not necessarily reflective of what was happening on campus. So if Lionheart wanted to make us look like a mass movement, he could and he did and so how he did photographs told the stories he put on the front page, all of a sudden Yale University administration but hit every panic button imaginable. They thought there was this a revolution on campus that was going to also expose the fact because every year when they raised money, they would their number one picks was for financial aid. So as Planning on. Exactly they're planning on shifting money. On a massive scale and it's all going to get exposed by this little this little protest group that looks huge because the Yale Daily News Editor in chief likes the story and thinks it's an important story I. mean he spent years pro getting yield to disinvest from South Africa. So he was just that Kinda guy old school lefty. And still this we debate now and then on twitter on social media, he's obviously not trump but the, but he made us look huge thousand nine years old and showed they actually.

On the one hand, she has already paid a steep price, Cooper said in a statement released in the New York Times announcing his decision not to cooperate, but he added that he understood there was a greater principle at stake. And that this should be defended. That's not enough to deter others. Bringing her more misery just seems like it's piling it on, he says. So if the D a feels like he needs to pursue charges he should pursue charges. But he conduce it without him. So what is he saying?

Two against Kansas City for at the Cardinals and then four at Milwaukee. That's a long, long stretch right there, But you got a whole bunch of games ahead of that. Where the Reds Khun really make a and you gotta have a good feeling. If you're reds country that is going too good here for this ball club. That we got but got games to play to get there, right. We also have this story out. Tio wanted to touch on this briefly because It's interesting during what's happening with black lives matter. Protestors protest regarding police brutality and the like, is some of their not just reporting on this thing, too. Because it's going to sound like you know, one of the off text on the media and all the mainstreaming. That's not it has more to do with, I guess how some stereotypes are allowed to continue while we're at war simultaneously with others. Remember that woman, Amy Cooper, right? Amy Cooper is the white woman who called 901 accusing a black man of threatening your life while she was in Central Park, and all he was doing was he was an area that is designated for birdwatchers. Where if you have a dog That's fine, but the dog cannot be off the leash. He's out there looking at birds, the dogs off the lead. And, of course, you know, birds and dogs really don't go hand in hand. Heid kind of hard to watch birds when the dog's scared, boy, and so they have plenty of signs up saying, Hey, you got a dog. Keep your dog on a leash in this area. She didn't He called her out, and she went nuts. She started threatening and yelling at the man in this, this guy Christian Cooper and a black man, she said she called 911. He was recording her call 911 and saying that an African American man should mention that three times during 911 call said he was threatening her, which, of course, was not happening. All I was was a cz general is you could be Of course, then this then blew up on social media. Subsequently, Amy Cooper lost her job at an investment firm. They took her dog away for a period of time. She can't go anywhere in public because she literally is public enemy number one, and now they have decided New York City to file a misdemeanor charge. We're making a false report. Misdemeanor charge has been filed against her arraignment is scheduled for mid October. And that is punishable by up to a year in jail. Now will she get a year in jail? Of course not provided that she Amy Cooper doesn't have any prior is they're not going to No way They're going to send Senator away for a year. Which of partial cause people going white privilege. Well, that's not true at all. It's typically if you don't have a record, ready for other misdemeanors are felonies. Your first offense. They're not going to throw the book at you just simply because you're white, so that would also be one of the things Well, you're punishing her because of the color of our skin. How is that fighting? Right? That's actually racist is what that is. So she may get you. No home confinement, something along those lines a conviction. But you think about it, though. My God. Force for those comments for their two minutes of fame and for 40 years. She really got the hammer. Thor. Never think about it right? She lost her job. She lost her dog. She is now treated horribly by strangers who see her in passing in the most populous city in America, and now she's looking at some serious charges against her pretty fitting punishment for her being that stupid in that racist in public or anywhere for that matter, But I bring this up because Not because of just desserts here, which I think a lot of people relished this and not to be too something like, well, you know, you're stupid to get whatever I look at her more as a busy body. Certainly, she said some racist things and called 9 11 out of racism, but Like you know your What do you think the rules don't apply to you? There's a reason why you got Central Park is a huge area. It's massive and as one area for people who watch birds, which I always thought that was a Punchline to a joke. I don't know There's actually people who watch birds out there. Apparently, bird watching is the thing so much so they have their own area in Central Park so it can watch the birds. You got a little lost the park to walk your dog you got doing here. And then when somebody calls a lady, you got every dog on a leash. All of a sudden, you're the bad guy. Hate people like that. You know, it's not like Oh, man. I don't know anybody's around. I'm so sorry. Apologize. Put your dog on a leash would have been in a story. Nope. Not her. She gotta double down on the stupid. The best part about this is that her lawyer said that she would be found not guilty. And that he critical criticizes a cancel cultural epidemic. She lost her job. She lost her home. She lost her public life and now some demand or freedom. How many lives are going to destroy? Misunderstood 62nd video on Social media? Yeah. Yeah, I I get that that the crown if it doesn't doesn't fit the prime, maybe it doesn't mean there's a There's a huge social cost of this whole thing. But as far as what stereotypes we allow and disallow and there are people going, okay, well, she's going to get And should be charged with making a false report. Okay. How many times has this happened? Where someone make a woman makes a false report against the man. And a false report goes unprosecuted. The answer is it happens a lot. And I'm not talking in this case about racism and stereotypes. I'm talking about sexism and stereotypes. So there's a part of a few years ago. And this is about the most accurate information I could find in my research. That they did A. This is in the Midwest. They did an investigation 109 sexual assault complaints and found out 41% of those were deemed to be false over body over a decade. Okay. Now that number seems a little high to me. I don't know how and I don't know about the methodology and have time to look at that, but that's what it says. But let's say they estimate that somewhere in the range of 1 to 2% Of the time that it's pretty obvious that a sexual assault report is false. And yet the people who filed those sexual assault was fake Reports largely go, Ana prosecuted Think about what happened, for example, happens at places like you see and savior and elsewhere where you have a couple. Ah young man, a young woman who decide after usually having multiple drinks, each, which, of course, they were both willing. Participants in They decide to have sex. And the end result is the next morning is the woman has buyer's remorse. Or someone finds out that she was banging this guy and that makes her look like well, makes her again double standard here, but it makes her look like You know, she's a little loose. Morally. I guess it's a way to support that. But it's me. That's your decision is here. You know you're a woman. You could make that decision or you want to sleep with or not. But the next day you can't buy from Arctic. Okay, well, it's the guy's fault because I was drunk. And I couldn't say yes. And you know, despite the fact that The man has overwhelming evidence and saying no, it was consensual. No, this is what I do is not allowed to present his case is not allowed to have a lawyer present is not allowed to argue his side. It's not a lot of present witnesses, and that happens all the time in colleges across America. So maybe the 41% is a little bit more accurate. But you can't say that because then what happens is you're diminishing the woman's plight. Women who are really subjected to sexual assault and rape and horrific crimes like that. Where they're victimized. Who is it? The swimmer from here. There was no rape the girl behind a dumpster. Whatever it wass, the horrible story, Terrible story, Disgusting. That's not every case. There's a lot of cases to where it's what I just described and yet It's like, Well, you know, we're still going to want a punishing the guy and we're just going to leave her right away because we're into me, too. Ah, era right now. Yes, women had been sexually victimized for years for decades for generations. And and probably will into the future. Unfortunately, sadly, and I say, this is a man who has a wife and a daughter..

'Raising White Kids' Author On How White Parents Can Talk About Race
"Many African American parents have with their kids about how to avoid altercations with police or what to do and say if they're stopped, but the recent unrest sparked by anger over police brutality against black men. It got US thinking about the role that parents could play in talking to their kids about race, and about this moment in the special episode of Life Kit I talk with Jennifer Harvey, the author of raising white kids, bringing up children in a racially unjust America about how white and all non black parents in particular can talk to their children about concepts like privilege an ally ship. Jennifer Harvey is also a professor of religion. Drake University and she is with us now. Thank you so much for having me. You just actually wrote a piece for CNN.com title. How do I make sure I'm not raising the next amy? Cooper Amy Cooper being the white women in Central Park. Who has recently recorded calling the police on an African American man who just asked her to leash dog, which is in fact. Fact the law and you know invoking his race. Basically saying I'm going to tell the police that a black man is threatening me and i. want to read what you wrote you say most white parents of today have come up in families in which white silence was a pervasive norm in our socialization. These same parents are now passing such silence on to their kids. Could you talk a bit more about that? Sure so you know many white Americans today. We're raised in families. Where explicit racism was not what parents were trying now of course, some weight Americans were really such families. Many of us were raised in families that thought that they were teaching equality, but the way that they did that was to just say well. We're all equal and not say anything more explicit. About what does it mean when you believe everyone should be equal, but many members of our society do not experience equality and so. What happens is the racist culture that we live in Doctor Beverly Daniel tatum talks about it as smog. Our kids, our youth, we adults just breathing end, so we end up showing up in racist ways, even from when we come from families where equality was the presumed value. You say well. Here's what she wrote. You said that sometimes it sounds like everybody's. Everybody's equal. Sometimes. We white parents tell our kids be colorblind. Sometimes we even say celebrate diversity, and you say what we say this while failing to notice, we're expecting children to be magically immune from the same racism induced tensions that get in the way of white adults, successfully navigating diversity and sustaining interracial relationships I. Mean you say the consequence of that is? The silence you said kind of breeds what? It breeds a lack of capacity among white people to engage well in conversations about race to talk about and respond when racism is happening, so we literally develop not enough capacity to for example. Oh, I hear racism out on the street or from CO worker. Should I challenge it? What should I say about it? And then if I have friendships across racial lines if my African American colleagues or friends see me be silent because I don't know what to do. I become untrustworthy. Right so I. Think about this with children and youth. For example you. You asked about you know the talk. If my eleven year old, who is white, if I only ever say to her? Hey, police are safe. Go find one if you're in trouble, but her African American cousin who's thirteen is learning really complicated messages about the police because his parents have to teach him that. They can be great friends for a while, but eventually over time their friendship, the depth of it will erode because she my white child will not be able to identify with her African American, cousin, her African American friends, and so I have to teach my kids. We all white Americans have to teach our white kids. How do identify with that experience and? And how to be good friends to black and Brown use as they grow up, and that requires US teaching about them about racism, and it requires US teaching them and modeling anti-racism, which is something a lot of white Americans, really struggle with even when we think we want to, so let's talk some practical things here. Obviously, this has a very deep stem. So many more conversations that ensue, but Or shouldn't sue as you point out. Let's start the video like the one that just surfaced. Clearly, not the first, but it may be the first for some child right seeing what has emerged here at this African American man being pinned to the street, saying I can't breathe and calling for help, and the other officers standing around to you know some of them participating in one of them, just standing there. How do you discuss this? Do you wait for a child to come to you? Do you show it to the child and say this is something I need to talk about with you? So in in white families we cannot wait to about with our children, because segregation is so deep that if we just wait, it will never come up. Having said that I never show my video. My children videos of black people being killed by police I try not to watch those videos myself. I do talk about the videos with them. And I started doing that work with my own children before they even had words really I would make sure we were in spaces where we were engaged in anti police brutality vigils and organizing, and I knew they wouldn't exactly understand what was going on, but for example, my five year old one time after a rally we were at when we got in the car. She started saying black people are not safe and I said yes. That's true, and then she said. Why we're. We're white, so we are safe and I said. Yeah, that's true, too. And then I said to her and the reason we went to this rally to be with people is we're trying to tell the government? That's how you tell it to a five year old. We're trying to tell the government that everybody
The author of White Fragility doesnt think most white people care about racial injustice
"I'm Jonathan Kaye part in this is Cape. Robin Diangelo is the author of white fragility by it so hard for white people to talk about racism. It's one of the most important books on race and racism that I've read because it's written by a white woman for white people. And she doesn't mince words I actually don't think that most white people care about racial injustice. The Angelo and I discuss how amy Cooper's nine. One one call and central park was terrifying addition to a history of white women's tears, being weaponized against black men, we discussed the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and we talk about the broader concept of white fragility. And how if you're white? You can liberate yourself from it. As you will hear. This was a Cathartic conversation for me. You can listen to it right now. Robert de Ngelo. Thank you very much for coming on the PODCAST. Thanks for having me I've been raving about your book white fragility. Why so hard for white people talk about racism? Since I read last year in one of the chapters in your book is entitled White Women's Tears and I immediately thought of it in in reaction to what happened central park between Amy Cooper, and Christian couvert not no relation and you have A. reprise Vignette. in that chapter where someone says to you when a white woman cries, a black man gets hurt, and you go on to write, not knowing or being sensitive to this history is another example of white centrality, individualism and lack of racial humility. In that that vignette jumped out at me after watching the Amy Cooper video. Because at least to me, it was clear Amy Cooper knew what she was doing. Those quote, unquote tears, and that quote unquote emotion were not real. From your perspective and as author of this book, tell me what you what you thought of what you saw in that video, and how that plays into the overall research in your book. Yeah, and you also noticed that the more it becomes clear that they're not working the more unraveled she becomes right there something. There's response that she expects to get that. She's not getting. So there's so much going on in that that scene. If you will, there's the sense of this is my space. This is our space and you don't belong in this space. And I am entitled to engage in this faith in any way that I want. I need to follow the rules right so in putting them back onto him. She actually makes herself the victim and hurt him the perpetrator. He's not following a an unspoken set of rules, which is not only not being in her space, but backing down a when she basically demands him to back down. When she she uses his race. Over and over, so it's very clear. She's not just calling the police and describing him even before she calls, she makes it known in. This is another great example of the lie of color blindness that we don't notice people's race. That has no meaning so she's leveraging all of this, and he just remains calm, dignified and she again. And more irrational, and I think in enlarge white fragility is irrationality, but it doesn't have to be rational. We don't have to be rational. It just has to work, so we can on in one one moment invoke individualism. Why can't we all be seen as unique and different and the next moment? Oh, we all bleed under the skin. Why can't we all seen as the same? They're contradictory narratives, but that's not the point the point is we need to silence of racism. We need to silence any calling in of our positions of our entitlement. At in there, there's a there's so much history behind this. This is this is another piece. White women's tears invoke a history of terror. I mean Emmett till. Is probably the most amplified example of what happens when a white woman claims distress. In that case he you know. He looked at me. He whistled at me and in the Emmett till example, we also know that that wasn't true. This a so much of this is based on lies, but up until recently it's certainly been effective.

The other was reebok and I thought they came out with just a fabulous line. They did a similar ad to Nike. I'll read it. It's shorter, but it says without the black community. Reebok would not exist America would not exist. We are not asking you buy. Our shoes were asking you to walk in someone else's? Not. That was an excellent excellent brand message. I thought that was actually more powerful than Nike's and. I think they were able to address the business issue in their statement. We're not asking you to buy our shoes and I think I think that also is is a good thing to do. I I don't think it's easy to work in a line like that, but it does address that one concern one of those concerns that I that I raised earlier. Yeah, I think it's also it's. It's bold I think I would. We talked about that very very fine line of getting the tone right, but you also have to keep in mind. We're dealing with a pretty sophisticated audience now in terms of one that subjected to constant bombardment of advertising in every way, shape and form online now. and Have become pretty well attuned to recognizing when somebody's just trying to sell them something versus trying to convey. A message that is that is compelling and engaging, and for that reason I think you do have to be bold in your particular sentiment. You can't say oh well, you know we'd like to go out one hundred percent on a limb here, but you know we've got to think about. Are we going to get flak? is they're going to be blowback solicits do it halfway. You can't do it halfway and to your point. I think that and I hadn't heard that that. Reebok that slogan or the or seeing the AD. but yeah I mean that that goes out on a limb that goes out on a limb. it. It is bold in its assertion of this isn't about our shoes out something much bigger than that and I think that's the kind of messaging that still resonates with people. Instill demonstrates that advertising. Can still play can still play. A role can still be compelling when utilized properly for sure, and you know, my advice still would be not to wait into these issues most of the time, and that's only because most most executives are very risk averse, and that's unfortunate because I think you look at Nike. You'll reebok you look at what they're doing..

No relation to Amy Cooper who was doing that he was, he was in the ramble. He was watching birds and when he saw it. Amy Cooper's dog wandering around and.

Should social media outlaw falsehoods?
"NERDS. At nerdwallet DOT com. I have two thoughts on Social Media. Today one is about misinformation. The other is the subject. We've talked a lot about here. Be careful with what you post because it can ruin your life. I'm Jefferson Graham. Yelena talking tech and we'll begin with the president. I really don't like to delve into politics here because the minute I open my mouth while I daily half the audience but here we go. Donald trump likes to mouth off on twitter. I think that's fair. Fair statement and he likes to say whatever crosses his mind without an editor to Raynham in sometimes. Those statements are flat out wrong but they stay up there as part of the public record lately he's been attacking. Msnbc host Joe Scarborough in claiming that he was to blame for our former staffer of his. Who DIED? The staffers family wrote an open letter to twitter. Ceo Jack Dorsey demanding that the tweet be taken down because it was untrue but as often the case with social media the platform refused. I believe because they don't want to get into a high profile battle with the White House. What a newsmaker a public figure can say but for the first time twitter did say that he would label. Trump's tweets alleging mail in ballots as fraudulent and direct users to get the facts through legit new stories a twitter spokesperson said the tweets contained quote potentially misleading information unquote and have been labelled as such as the Washington Post. Put it for. It's fourteen year existence. Twitter has allowed misinformation by world leaders in everyday citizens to spread virtually unchecked. It's leaders have long. Said that users would engage in debate on the platform and correct false information on their own. That didn't exactly work out because the false information just stays up there and many people take it as fat. What's your position folks? Should people be allowed to use facebook twitter and Youtube as places to say anything they feel like or should there be community standards? That are adhere to personally. I don't think social media should be the Cesspool I think editors are good thing I think if you're using social media to blow off steam you should have a draft to your post. Let it sit for a day and see how it reads the next day before going public because a post can ruin your life. Just ask Amy Cooper. She's the woman who declined to have her dog on a leash in central park and when asked to do so by a black band she declined as the conversation. Got More heated.
