Unpacking Biden's Executive Orders Advancing Racial Equity And Tribal Sovereignty
"Faith and morality require. Among the executive orders He's signed since arriving in the Oval Office for are aimed at advancing racial equity and tribal sovereignty. Earlier this week, we spoke with the Brookings Institution's Andre Perry about one of those initiatives. Tackling discriminatory federal housing policies. I do think this is a start. You have to start somewhere you start with HUD and hopefully mo mentum from the public. Can encourage these other areas to make change. We called on three experts to address the other pillars of the Biden plan, reaffirming tribal sovereignty, ending the federal government's use of private prisons and condemning discrimination, bias and hate crimes against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Ethel Branches. A former attorney general for the Navajo Nation. Paul Butler, is a former prosecutor and author and professor at Georgetown Law and from Citizen University and the Aspen Institute. Eric Liu. I started off by asking. Will these executive orders make a difference? Ethel Branch spoke first. Absolutely. It sends a strong message. Using the language of equity is very hopeful. It's a needed reaffirm INTs to Indian country that this administration's engagement with Indian nations will be very different from the last administration and also signals that some of the things that were under way under the Obama administration will be put back into place. But I think this is just a start. If President Biden really wants to reaffirm tribal sovereignty we need to start talking about Lifting the federal chains essentially that restrict tries from controlling their territory and governing with respect to their people. And Eric Liu, you have written about the experience of Chinese American families. I wonder what you make of this order fighting xenophobia against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. I think President Trump created a frame of permission. That it was okay to be casually racist toward Asian Americans and people of Asian descent. And, as with so much of President Trump's racism he could say, at least on the surface, plausibly. Oh, I didn't mean that that's not meant to be that you're being too sensitive. But I think anybody of actual Asian descent could feel the vibe of disrespect and menace and the form of disrespect comes in this way in particular. Which is You look Asian. I don't really care whether you're Asian, American or Asian from Asia. I'm going to see you as a threat. I'm going to see you as a problem. I'm going to see his escape goat President Biden Simply by changing the tone simply by refusing to speak in that way, makes a big difference. I want to turn to

I want to make sure that we can scale up S so that when more vaccine is available, Californians can access that infrastructure. But also, how do we optimize the supply that we have now?

Dr andre perry brookings fellow new orleanians alum. What's the revolution. This is easy for me. And i say all the time. There's nothing wrong with black people than ending. Racism can't solve. There's this idea this white. Supremacist man that the conditions of a black neighborhoods in cities are direct result of the people in them. And we won't ignored sidestep abdicate responsibility for addressing the policy issues that negatively impact our neighborhoods. And so i unapologetically feel that. There's nothing wrong with us are really do That we are enough however with that said we must change these policies in ways that will Reveal who we actually are. Yes and because in so many ways oppression has been so stifling you you can't see e because we're so entrenched in this battle with racism and so for me you remove that drag of racism in our markets in our economy in our political apparatus in you're going to see new communities new inventors new ways of being But we are exhausted because we're constantly fighting a narrative that is built to keep us observing and so for me. It's to always remind ourselves. It's those policies is so structures that are at fault not us because if we internalize it's us we end up saying stupid crap light fifty cent you know.

"But you say, while appraisers can easily see camps in maybe all white suburbs where homes all look alike. They can't see comes in eclectic urban neighborhoods. They often pick homes of laughably less value. There's something in that process that's going awry by his creeps. In 93% of the appraisal industry is white. And so another part of the solution is diversifying the field. We have got to address the bias that's robbing wealth, extracting wealth from black families and black communities. Well, as you well know, appraisers have responded to this back when you had the hearings. Um, appraiser from Chicago, Maureen Sweeney wrote a letter to the House subcommittee saying Is there a problem with poor and underserved communities in the U. S? Yes. Is it the appraisal professions fault? No. There's this white myth. The conditions of black neighborhoods are direct result of the people in them. Will you and others point out inner cities are often neglected by landlords or City services. But this happens in wealthy black and mixed neighborhoods as well. You see appraisers lowball folks. This naturally, it has to be worse because it has guns is in a black neighborhood. And we're like No. Did you check the education that you checked the crime levels? It's like they're punishing or adding attacks on on these communities for apparently no reason, But we know the reason it's the It's the generations long bias. I'm reading an article by Gregory Squires and Huff Post and one of things he suggests, is that banks and lending institutions, the people who are, you know, hiring these appraisers. Need to make sure that more of them are local. Oh, yeah, Again. We know that if you live in a community, you recognize the nuances of it, and more importantly, you value to the community. I want to bring back Robin and Alex Horton and wanna talk a little more about the things that you did and how it made you feel since hanging up old oil paintings of your husband Who's white to make your house with more white. Well, I mean, it felt slightly ridiculous. It felt like a racer. But it's something that black people know how to do. It's basically the ultimate code switch, turning yourself into The mainstream so that you can get along so that you can get a fair result. If people are having these feelings they need to report They should not just be taking this on the chin. And you know, people are feeling it because you posted your story on your Facebook page and it blew up. You reported this incident to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Have you gotten a response? I have received a response and the investigation is ongoing. Okay? There is one question that I wanted to ask Andre about a policy solution for it. Someone has to come in and see it or you can't really value it properly. Could there be a mechanism where There is a nationally recognized aggregator for a I that says what it says objectively based on all those Illo factors, but then also To the extent that an appraiser is significantly off the aggregators number they have to justify that difference. Oh, yeah, there you can feel And that's what's probably coming some type of a better system of saying, Hey, this appraisals off that you know that. That's such a good question, because the truth is, we all now know the home values because you've got things like Salo, Andre one last question for people thinking they are white. And this isn't their problem. If there is a family down the street that's mixed race or black and they get under appraised. Your value goes down to that's exactly right. We're all in this together. That's Andre Perry, a fellow at the Brookings Institute, author of Know Your Price, valuing Black Lives and Property in America's black Cities. And we've also have been speaking to the Horton's DNA.

thought with all due respect hi I'm looking at these numbers they keep throwing at us he even if you believe that's the sort of thing the government should do why would you do it now bring up the

let's go to Dennis in sandy Utah on the mark of an app go ahead hello hello right Hey I appreciate your call mark I didn't call you he called me pardon you're right and I guy let's get it straight go go go I heard you talk about the iron fist of government several times and I agree that's that what do you think about the iron fist of government controlling our prescription drug supply is not good would you say just educate me do I need it okay who would be in charge of it exactly rack might Broadwell for private sector but just make sure you said no no no he said government control that's not the private sector who would run all right I just mean government mandating not to build their house drugs manufactured in China using the artist I've talked about this that's a different issue I think the government should not mandate that I think the government to provide the the incentive for these companies to invest in America rather than disincentives and so what you can do through the tax system the regulatory system the labor system and all the environmental system and all these other rules to push companies overseas that the left loves that the bureaucracy loves that Republicans are fearful of aren't doing bring the investment back into the United States that's what you need to do they'll do it well you and I and either way I think the Chinese now I think the Chinese have done for us because one of the things China does not have among many that we have in America is a rule of law have you noticed that if you're a company in China what China can do whatever the hell the ones with and so I would think at this point working companies that invest further or don't leave China are out of their freakin minds and their stock holders and shareholders or to do something about it but I am really get tired of our government talking about these companies go overseas they need to produce in America are they overseas could you make it so damn expensive that's why you get so many rules and investigators an assistant US attorneys and the anti trust division said this that and the other it's it's it gets harder and harder and harder one of the things the president did and here's the evidence in order to find a vaccine and treatments and so forth what is he done he's pulled back heavily on regulations he has ordered the FDA and the other alphabet soup out there to to allow these companies to get their drugs approved more quickly and to the president's quite it he also has in place a law that he pushed that allows individuals and groups of individuals I take it not to use medicines you know as a last resort if you're facing death your your you know you might be willing to try things that other people may not so really the government has to get out of the way and if it's going to get in the way it ought to be creating incentives not disincentives anyway that's my view Dennis you educated me once again and well thank you and what do you think about naming Joe Biden comatose this not bad all right thank you thank you my friend main surgery once or twice so I could use that phrase I'd be attacked I guess ten interestingly if a Republican had brain surgery

"Rapist as state of mind. So that's really was. Musk joking or was he being serious serious in his accusations he also hired a detective to investigate the guy. And there's a lot to kind of shows this was more than just a casual insult is there is there an impact on uh-huh is there an impact on Tesla business here gene. I so far I don't I mean if he look sto so he has to pay seventy five grand. So maybe the jury rates has punitive damages. It's it's it's all out of his pocket or whatever I don't see it being large enough to have an impact and buying goodness if you know with Elon Musk. USC is the master of diverting attention to other things like my shiny new truck. Why didn't he just settle? I don't get it. Why is this is so fascinating tasting becky that federal taxpayers are footing the bill to use a courtroom for this today over two guys who couldn't come to some sort of agreement agreement through mediation look often settlement comes about after you pick a jury you take a look at the jury in one side of the other decides you know what let's go ahead and settle by the way UNSWORTH is also suing in court in UK? So there's two lawsuits going on at the same time Jane. Thank you great to see you. keep us up to speed today for more on. Musk legal challenges. Let's welcome welcome. Geoff Sonnenfeld he's the Yale School of Management Senior Associate Dean for Leadership Studies. He's president the Videos Chief Executive Leadership Institute also a CNBC contributor and Jeff. Thank well Becky I think after that fabulous discussion that the four of you just had you might wonder what more is there at and there are some nuances. Jane wondered why they were dropping the emails where they're dropping emails to narrow the defamation suit just on the tweets as I understand it because the emails were labeled Doug off the record confidential ential so that his intention on the emails weren't so clear that have a mass publicity. The way he clearly wanted to publish these tweets because he did so. And that's that nuance Thomas to really good question. What's the impact on the company? And the heightened by the way and I think that That is compelling distraction. Is You you point out a master distraction and but it also just shows another one of these boards. That has a fear of founder issues. Whether or not we're looking at facebook and Mark Zuckerberg or of course Looking at the problems with Adam Newman and we works or Jack Dorsey going off on some Strange adventure in Africa. That makes a lot of sense for somebody else else in the company to do but the disappear for six months to leave to leave both twitter and square is the CEO of two companies. We have boards that seem unable to direct genius founders and in this case until this past several months where musk seems to have cleaned up his act. We had a fairly reckless person out of control. And that's the that's the significance significant. Tom Is as how does aboard a kind of rain in these twitter twitter Tantrums Jeff. Great great to get. I had a question about that. Exact kind of meltdown. That Eh Alana hat round about a year year and a half ago there was the whole funding secured for twenty There was a board that was a bit lame quite frankly has the company made improvements in its governance in the past year year and a half from your perspective. Yeah it seems that he was making mockery of the initial. Sec Settlement settlement which amazing this was happening at the same time is that that four twenty stock dangling which seemed not to be based on any facts in terms of the the private placement as is that melted down. It was the same time that Moscow's was coming out with these nonsensical tax on Pedo man. And you're you're wondering Joe you're wondering what else could be a Dervisa division of of Pedo. What are the producers here? Jessica suggested that maybe he was talking about pedestrian. Then somebody would just walk through a whole different area perversion with the foot so I don't you don't need to right. I mean they don't need. That doesn't help. That doesn't help understand that. What are you talking about? Hey you know what I was also thinking of remember the good old days. Ah I remember you remember the Nixon tapes that we had epithet deleted. Why do we know everything that everyone's thinking? Why do they put it on twitter? I mean we used to have some decorum corvallis social. This is one guy who really should have hired rosemary woods to delete delete something. It's meltdown twitter. It's at twitter is so it's like Nitroglycerin. You know what I mean. You've gotta when you see you just don't self-imposed he was having a Tantrum. He could have gotten himself himself out of this. And it's it's completely unforced errors. Instead of coming up with a settlement as we know is the best settlements usually on the courthouse steps. So maybe something will be what what happened before mid day today. But surely this didn't have to happen. It's it's foolish as a Tantrum and you know we had a heroic story was eighteen days as to rescue these poor kids. These twelve stranded soccer players and their coach. And that's what should have been celebrate instead distracting the attention onto this and In here we have this successful launch or lease the dangling of the perspective launch of the cyber truck with a quarter of a million Folks put one hundred dollars down fully refundable to buy and we've seen that the Some some successes out there with the surprise people with a profitable last quarter. Why distract with this kind of nonsense that he gets into great to see you coming up? You know about student debt but college that one in five twenty percent of small private colleges are in what they call fundamental financial stress and brewing crisis in higher education. STRAIGHT AHEAD ON SWAT ought welcome back to Squawk pod. Here's Joe Kernan three to ferry. You push on Joe Up. On 'em cube students aren't the only ones crushed by debt. Private colleges are under stress and some going out of business or Scott cone joins us now from one in Ohio school that is determined to buck the trend. Hey Scott Yeah. They're not going to go out of business here. Joe This is Hiram College it's a small liberal arts school about forty miles outside of Cleveland. They're answered all of this is to literally change the definition of liberal arts which seems kind of drastic. But here's what they're up against. These colleges are closing left and right. According to Moody's they're expecting fifteen colleges when all is said and done this year to close that is the most in years and and three times the rate of just five years ago ten years ago I should say in fact Moody says one in five. Twenty percent of small private colleges. Judges are in what they call fundamental financial stress. So here at Hiram they say they saw this coming awhile ago when they were trying to refinance their debt so we'd they're doing what they call the the new liberal arts. They've done away with some of the less popular less career oriented majors like religious studies and instead they're moving to things like things like career oriented oriented things like Criminal Justice requiring students to do internships before they graduate. This is not within without some pain. They have cut about twenty percent of the faculty not over the last several years. Of A lot of it through attrition as they continue to try and retool but they feel like this is a model for the future and the rest of higher head guys will be watching all right. Scott thank you very much for more on the sustainability of high college tuition. Let's bring our guests joining us. Right now is Neil mcklusky. Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom Director and Andre Perry Brooklyn's institutions Metropolitan Policy Program fellow. Gentlemen I think we can all agree that college tuition is soaring soaring. Whether you're looking at private colleges or even Publican in in some cases what would you do to try and bring down costs. Andre what do you think the first thing we really you need to do is do a reset. I was a college administrator for years and I've never seen a college tuition hike. President didn't like when when they're when something went wrong in the College of natural sciences they Lifted tuition for the for the entire student body. At some point point we need to control costs and set cats or limits on how much you can raise tuition. And that's why I'm supportive of states that are trying thing to bring more transparency to the college financial crisis. How do you think government Subsidies today's for loans has has impact impacted tuition increases making it easy for students to borrow money even if they're not otherwise Able to afford it you you you. You called it the because of their so much cash in terms of the federal government allowing folks to take out loans the colleges colleges acquiesce in rice or tuition prices. And and that's and that's a core part of the problem. Certainly there are other issues There is wage each stagnation and and other issues particularly with low income black and brown communities where they're not able to afford rising prices but as long as colleges can raise their tuition they will and that's the problem. I think that's absolutely right. I mean the evidence is pretty clear that colleges are always looking for money because they always see something they think is important to do and as long as the federal government supplies lots of of loans and also grants but the loan of the biggest problems and tax credits and lots of other aid to students. The schools will always look to those students. It's a source of funding. The other thing is colleges are are also sort of caught because students with a lot of money available to them often tend to who demand from a school some expensive things. That's why we see water parks and some colleges and college often feels a need to supply those things or they don't get the students. The small liberal arts colleges had the toughest time doing that colleges have to go through a crisis. In order to fix the problem I spoke to a president of the Catholic. Theology told me he expects half of Catholic colleges to close Over the next decade. Yeah well I mean. A crisis always tends to focus people and higher education. I think I think it's no different if they can continue on doing what they've always done. They're going to tend to do that and they need some sort of shock to change what they're doing. Neil Andre I want to thank you both for your time today. It's good to see you. You said a waterpark. Well in high end gyms all kinds of what you need a monorail fancy.

"What's going on at the city level, we, we have a inordinate amount of data that show, particularly when you're looking at employers, and their call backs for for employees. They do not call back black. Am potential workers at the same rate at White's? We've known that there's employment discrimination discrimination at all levels those who, who are. Highly educated those who are in need of, of an education. So the, the, the idea of full employment has never am Inc. Black work rates in a way that would address the structural reasons why they're not absorbed in, in, in the economy. It's tell us more about e you started talking about some of those structural reasons. But, but tell us more is it? I don't want to say is it a simple because nothing is simple. But you're talking about callback rates is it about who are the employers as well? Absolutely. I mean, that, you know, at a very basic level the unemployment rates reflect who's being hired. So you can't ignore that, but you also cannot ignore a bias criminal Justice system that really throttled black men and black women's ability to get the skills to, to get into Connie. And you also can't discount. The, the wealth gap know that how we how we build businesses or create businesses largely come from our ability to leverage, the equity on our homes and blacks have been denied. That two blacks, also have not had the ability to create the, the jobs themselves in the manner, that white people I'm having in the past, so but at its core bull. Blacks are not hired at the same rates and they are hired to essentially service white growth. And that's where the this, the rhetoric of full employment re really hides that win whites or are getting jobs in managerial positions, getting benefit blacks are working, but they're the Uber and lift drivers. They're working in the convenience stores. They're not getting the kind of benefits that will that, that they can use to build. Wealth and longevity with their families. And so it's long as we keep saying that we're in a state of full employment without recognizing the wage differences, the benefit differences, who's who's really benefiting from this economy. We're all we're going to just reinforce structural inequality in this country. We've got about thirty seconds before just take a quick break here. But there you said a lot, and I want to dig into a bunch of it. But let me just ask you though, even given all you said. I mean as Scott was saying earlier the rate at which the, the unemployment rate is falling falling for African Americans is, is, is pretty significant. That's gotta be some good news. Well there with the other there, another time we were at full employment. Blacks were and wasn't a good thing. So we got to look at the full picture, and I'm referencing slavery, obviously. But we gotta look at the full picture. All right. Well, we'll take a bigger look at that full picture when we come back. So Andre Perry, and Scott Horsely stand by here for just a second. We're talking about. NPR series all this week about what a full employment economy, really looks like in the lives of real people. And we want to hear from you. We'll be right back. This is on point. Nineteen sixty five a darkened street corner in Selma Alabama and a murder. A new podcast exposes the lies that kept this murder from being solved and explores memory myth and accountability for a crime at the heart the civil rights movement from NPR white lies. Listen and subscribe, now, this is on point, a mega Chakrabarti. We're talking this hour about what a full employment economy, looks like in the lives of real people. NPR's running a special series all this week about exactly this. And Scott Horsely is with us this hour. He's NPR's chief economics. Correspondent Andrea Perry is also with us as well as a fellow at the metropolitan policy program at the Brookings Institution and Scott before the break, you're hearing Andre talk about how the, the benefits of full employment economy. He says haven't at all yet reached the African American community. What did you find in your reporting?.

"But there were also several that you brought up structures and policies that may not have intended to be discriminatory, but the negative effects did fall disproportionately on racial minorities. Can you talk a little bit about some of those, please? Yeah, for sure. I mean, one of the policies that really looms large happens to be the administration of welfare policy in America. And so we see that as welfare policy as volved in specifically, the nation's tan of program, the precursor program was called AFDC. This is what people think of as cash welfare for the poor. Well, you know, this program is devolved to the states, and then there. After to the county's oftentimes administer. And unfortunately, we've seen instances and there's evidence that case workers have discriminated against black clients. They've sanctioned them off of welfare far more than their white counterparts clients. And this obviously has a whole host of negative consequences for the families. That's just one such example where the policy explicitly wasn't meant to discriminate. That's the contemporary finding in Florida wasn't meant to be discriminatory. But unfortunately, you'll have people who come to the workplace with perhaps their stereotypes there, discriminatory attitudes and that can have real impacts another such policy that we kind of try to highlight in the paper has to do with educational spending. You know it's interesting many of the poorer school districts. Well, you know, years ago looking at this problem, the finding was that well, we don't know whether or not spending actually positively impacts school out. Comes in educational outcomes and some of the more modern evidence on this. It's been quite sophisticated comes around to the finding that, yes. In fact, you know, putting money into schools putting money into poor schools has real tangible. Benefits is gonna disproportionally positively impact black students and students of color who are more likely to be situated in these schools. I think when piece of chapter that's no worthy though, is that a lot of the public policies that harm black Americans are going to harm all the residents in that local area. So you can have a dish proportionate impact on black Americans. That's gonna really have negative impacts on the economy overall. Sure. That sounds very similar. Our colleague, Andre Perry piece not too long ago, talking about neighborhood based discrimination and how visit code and the neighborhood is now becoming almost as much of a defining factor as race or gender or class issues. Is that sort of what you're talking about with this, or is that different? You know, to a degree. I mean. Imagine that you are a white child or a white parent situated in a neighborhood where the resource base is less where the investment in the schools are less will your child is caught up in that same set of negative consequences. Right? So I think it's just something to keep in mind that there's these broader efficiency implications when we don't have these policies being implemented in sort of an equitable way. So no. And I think even more broadly thinking about the degree to which these same families face a whole range of work related hardships, how do they, whether financial storms? I know this is some of the work that Fred thought about vis-a-vis credit access. How does that day-to-day process look how to financial institutions in some of these neighborhoods relate to those potential customers? What are the fees they incur? Right. So I think it's a broad set of things. We try to consider in the paper and hopefully the readers are interested in going, read more. Yeah, this is good point. Turn to talk a little bit about some of these disproportionate issue's access to finance, access to banking. All this out though. In a fact that says the fun fact is the depressingly fun fact. So some socialists did an experiment speaking of.

"More about Andre Perry and his research on our website and also look for an event that he presented at in September on black women's cross strike in an era of fracture politics and now back to the. Economics. I think you down play the role of economics in the frustration that people have both on the left and on the Trumpian right? And among ordinary Americans who are not particularly ideological, and I could cite sort of a whole lot of statistics, but just in summary since at least either nineteen seventy three or nineteen eighty. Whichever date you wanna pick the combination of technological change and trade patterns. Globalization has really hammered the living standards of lots of Americans, even as overall wealth is grown the number gadgets. We have the capacity for listen to this podcast with all kinds of cool. Things have happened, but there were a lot of Americans who have not gained out of that and they feel they were sold to build goods. And I think the reaction is fair when they were sold. Yes. Well, they'll be some people who lose out from these trade. But we'll take care of that and we never took care of that Trump's vote is I think we probably do agree from the book more about race, culture, immigration, and tribalism than it is economics. And yet it's very striking that when you look at all of the analyses of the Trump vote by geography, he won in places that are in relative to Klein to the rest of the country. A great brooking study. Hillary Clinton won only about four hundred fifty counties, but they represented sixty four percent of American GDP Trump won twenty five, twenty six hundred counties somewhere in that range. They only represent thirty four percent of GDP. You're not saying any much about economics or the cost of this world order to a lot of people and also a pet peeve of mine. My conservative friends who always seem to want to spend more on the military and cut taxes on wealthy people. And it doesn't seem that you guys saying you guys guys me. Guys. You guys, so I'll stay with you. Ever want to pay the price. So why don't you? If you could take those two, we'll let me get elated because the second one is not a hard one for me because I don't understand how we could be cutting taxes at the same time that we need to spend more not only on defense, but on other things like infrastructure and what have you. The Republicans used to be the ones who claim that they were concerned about the budget deficit, and now they're blowing bigger hole in our budget than anybody has ever done. And I just think that's just a dysfunctional quality. Now there are larger issues here. That's not the only act of political weakness that is going on. Now we're also unable to get hold of what I gather. I'm not supposed to call entitlement spending. I forget what word I'm supposed to us, but we have programs that are increasingly on funded that we refuse to get a hold of. And so power finance or finance, either one. But I mean, you mentioned Brookings studies. You know, if you go back to the sort of budget documents. That Alice Rivlin and others have put out Domenici's over member all these different efforts to balance the budget. They all said, this is not being driven by defense spending. I think it's very important to say that fiscal policies and other budget priorities are much more significant than the defense budget now. So we not be cutting taxes at this moment. I'm in agreement with you on that, but let's set that aside. Then talk about your your larger point and I will plead guilty to not spending as much time on economic consequences, partly because I feel like what I am talking about is what people talk about less. I am talking about politics, geopolitics and power more than people. Generally I'm compensating in a way for what I think is inadequate attention to that basic fact. You are much better expert on this domestic politics United States than I am, but I am seeing all kinds of studies that suggest that while economic anxiety was only present in this last election, this election really turned as much. As anything on the issues that you mentioned tribalism?.
