"This is what he does like he he you know he hides his hand and and likes to come off as if he was the one being nice like. I can't imagine why anybody would would make fun of me or hate on me the whole while. He's like he's harassing me. I have much smaller audience at the time and my friend had it even smaller audience so she was pretty taken aback by the harassment It wasn't completely new to me. At that point. I had experienced a little bit of online abuse. But it was unexcusable It was like a whole week for it was the way that he presented it instead of. Just i don't know. I should've taken the advice. To be honest. He went full. Karen he also take karen. I'm thinking was like doing me. Yeah it's like these people are just making fun of the on the internet. Yeah yes exactly. So let's get into his scams more starting with seoul crab and greens and gravy. So one of several restaurants the dairies owned in atlanta georgia. As information started coming out regarding darius a former server from a now shuttered soul crab gave her account physical assault by him and there are tweets that will post to the page in an exclusive interview with blackwood enterprise. Williams says the reason that kiara didn't receive. Her money was because she never completed on boarding despite being shorted on payroll and this is an alleged common occurrence with a lot of his employees and is very cute. Sakala shorted on payroll right. And i'm not getting currency for it was going down playing and it's been two years since the restaurant closed like why. Why is still looking for money. Also how does someone not complete on boarding paperwork. But they working right. So you didn't do your job right-leaning the worker that's even for. Will you decide here initial here. So that's why we can't pay you even though you've been working here for two years like why it doesn't make any sense for it to have gone to that point where she was that upset. She never should have been the man for her. Of course she was upset so he also denies the assault saying that. She began being irate with him. He says he reviewed the video footage with responding officers and admits so. I did put my hands on her. This is a quote from black enterprise. But i put both hands on her shoulders to kinda turn her so we could go discuss this outside so put your hands on her. Yeah like that's i think. That's the definition right. And i would love to see the tape. I mean i don't know why that take place in surface yet. Count is completely different than his. I'm going to believe her. Also like we'd be. I'd get to a fistfight. Her star which is gently walks her out outside the door. Okay right so the woman that had the pry his hands off in her make book. I gave her a hug when my hands around the throat. What saying interaction houston. Yeah he just lives. He lives on everything but it was. It was just so disturbing that the he brushed it off and then in another interview claimed to not even know her name. It's just like that's so offensive to me that you now you have somebody that came out and said you didn't pay me sultan and you can't even bother to learn your employees name right and also in the black enterprise article. He brought up his clearness saying no. I'm a gay man. Like how could i harm women. And i was like what does that mean absolutely nothing to do with. He's doing a lot lately. That's the that's the new deflection is that i'm i'm a gay man i i couldn't possibly be harming women. It just doesn't make any sense. Good news to me. So that's gonna hold up for court. I didn't know that. That's i don't think you can be like yeah. Your honor woman. Kirkum your engages. Same-sex dating a how obvious criminal do cry he's what are you saying. I was just watching it last night. And it was the larry read interview and he says she said that i must not have known that he's that he's a sissy like he said that word. It's just it's just crazy your honor. I hurt that woman. i'm gay. They method in this. That's going to be the through line for all of this was just will never map so so so darius other restaurant greens and gravy shutdown this past february without notice. He announced an instagram post. That they were shuttering but did not provide additional details later. He said it was due to his mental health. And i wanna bring this up because it seems like anything that is a struggle or a situation where you're marginalized darius likes to capitalize on that. You know he did it when he posted on. His instagram was like black people. Why can't we get along. Crabs at merrill also grabbed my restaurant and then he did it with being homosexual. Like i couldn't hit a woman. I'm gay And then he shut down his restaurants and said who i'm depressed and is like brings out the pill bottles right and it's like also i realized i'm your social media that he sent a lot of his fans after you attacking you for your mental health trying to save them because you were exposing criminal that you were mentally ill first of all those things. Don't walk hand in hand. I suffer from innings. -iety that doesn't make me a bad person. It doesn't make me too bad things to people like they're different but he used an excuse of mental health and then tried to have people attack. You saying that you were mentally ill. Yeah houston i mean. He's it's more reflections. The i've always been open about my mental health. I talk about it all the time. I was diagnosed.

"Portion of the show historically. This is where i will regain normally regale angela. with a scam story and get her opinions throughout. I am going to get her opinions all throughout. But she is very familiar with what we're going to be talking about today so before we really get into our wrote down some things and yeah here. We go so today. We're talking about gordon. Scams chef boy ar scheme. Since daddy anthony do robbery don't i don't i couldn't. I really couldn't figure it out because i was like i love this man we can do. We can do marcus scandals. I think that was one of anthony. Bourdain is a king guys. We're talking about darius williams who is more widely known as darius cooks and then even more widely known as darius crooks mr cruz yes i'm gonna call him a shock anymore. This is mr crooks mr crooks and before we really get into like i always say guys yano. I'm not trying to get sued okay. And he's on the ready to go. Find me ready for my avocado. Okay if i have to drive found a billboard fight people's suing me. Y'all got to help me out. Okay give me my money from avocado fun. So the sources for this are coming from forbes. Article wi- food blogger. Angela davis blues derrius williams does not deserve a platform Southern girl darius cooks darius cracks question-mark popular personality personality. Excuse me under fire Black enterprise from recipes to receive darius cooks williams-brice claims that he is a crook and then the state of georgia consumer protection division. Yes and that is why we could legally call him a scammer because georgia determined that know but he do crime now so angela is known as the kitchen needs to an american chef food blogger recipe developer cookbook author. She's here we've talked about this. She has created her blog. The continues in diaries in twenty twelve. We also know that right She's appeared news outlets cuffing to pose. Ho Our detroit food fifty two of the washington post the like angeles here and she has the things. She's a seasoned professional and the girls. Now they now. I do my job. Yes some of those actually so in twenty fourteen and this is crazy because this is a very interesting episode. Because i'm talking about you but you're here so some of this sounds like it's not like you're here put it says in two thousand. Fourteen davis started seeing some darius williams videos circulating circulating around the internet. She had a twitter conversation with friend. Pastry chef critiquing. Some of what she'd seen but never actually tagging williams nor involving him directly. So do you remember what that is flake. What you saw that. Give you pause. It was will. We were looking at his blogs. I don't remember what specifically what video was going around but it prompted us to look at his blog so we were kind of running through the recipe at that time. And i think my friend was the cupcakes that caught her because she's a pastry chef and it was like a greasy cupcake liner in the beginning of the conversation started out as she was explaining to me like how he could have done it differently. And then we just kinda went back and forth in a general sense about how like sloppy the work wise. I remember going like i just browse through his recipes in the instructions. Were so vague. That came across to me as as lazy. Because i you know. I might log at that point and i know how much work it was just to explain a recipe in a way that somebody could really learn from it and everything that he was putting out just seemed like the exact opposite of that and i will say that i think he got away with that for so long because there was like a kitschy to him. There's like a comedic aspect so some it's almost like those white women who make those videos where they make nachos on their counter and their counter it was like click bait and so i think that he used that to his advantage. The issue is is that he is really also trying to purport himself as a real shop and so recipe books. So it's like. I don't know that. He realized that it was funny. Oh i think he thought he was really doing the thing going back. Because i i went back to some of his oldest videos when he first started cooking it was like two thousand eight and his master stuff auditioning he was taking himself seriously he really should just a comedian from that point and it wouldn't be great. I saw what you tweeted about that. 'cause wasn't even talk about success on or something stuck fallen out of the pantry and like it was like she was looking for the first time i was. He's doing this audition and talking about his secret ingredients. Yes he wasn't taking himself seriously. But but it's just weird because all this time pretending to be a cook he have learned right like you. And that's something about scamming is like a lot of times. People have skills but they're just kind of lazy. Don't wanna home them when they realize they don't have to. So that makes sense when you have this conversation about the cupcakes. Guess he's screen shot at it and posted his instagram and alluded to you. Not supporting black chefs. That's his that's his recollection is. He approached me. I think in his interview with With larry read he was saying. I approached her that we should work together. It's less there's not too many black people out there but that's not that's not what he did when he shot it he. He presented it to his audience that i was hating on him and this is why i don't know why black cooks can't get along or food blog or something like that and just manipulative of course of course from the very beginning..

Herbert use she would later say that. Mark hughes taught me that it was possible to be an academic an activist a scholar and a revolutionary after returning to the united states. Angela davis joined. The communist party became involved in the black panther party. The student nonviolent coordinating committee second wave feminism and protected the vietnam war in nineteen sixty nine. Angela davis became an acting associate professor of philosophy at the university of california los angeles that same year. The university of california system initiated a policy against hiring communists at their september nineteenth nineteen sixty nine meeting the california board of regents urged on by then governor. Ronald reagan fired professor. Angela davis from her teaching post because of her political beliefs on october eighth nineteen. Sixty-nine angela davis gave a speech at ucla protesting her dismissal education. She told a cheering student. Audience should not mold the mind according to a prefabricated architectural plan. It should rather liberate the mind because the mind has to be liberated in order to perceive the world to see society. D- understand what its advantages are and what its disadvantages are in that same speech. Angela davis true persuasive links between the suppression of academic freedom institutional racism and the rise of totalitarianism in germany during the nineteen thirties. Later that month. Angela davis was reinstated by a california superior court judge and completed teaching the nineteen sixty nine to nineteen seventy academic year with that. Let's listen to angela. Davis talk about academic freedom institutional racism and the dangers to tel terrorism afternoon. I'm mark greenfield as chairman of the associated students speakers program. I would like to welcome you to the first in our nine hundred sixty nine. Nineteen seventy noon lecture series. Today speaker has been the subject a bunch of tension in the last few weeks. Angela davis of member of the black panthers and snack as presently a member of the chandler mumba club and all black collective of the communist party last friday. The region of the university of california voted to suspend mistake davis from her teaching duties. And it is in this regard that she is here today. I introduced to you professor. Angela davis thank you the son of a conspiracy cropping up a conspiracy was present. Goal appears to be the destruction of the very possibility of education in the state. Marvin x a professor at fresno state. College is on the verge of losing his job because he believes in the construction of a black nation. Twenty four black students are on trial for almost two thousand felony charges for having attempted to protest the existence of racism at san fernando valley state college saul castro in two black. Teachers are being transferred to all white schools because they sympathized with the demands of the students to make education relevant to the community. And i'd just like to add if i hadn't been in my class on monday if i hadn't had to lecture right down on the picket line supporting saul castro. The region's certified me because they say i'm a member of the communist party now. Those involved in the conspiracy seemed to be either ignorant or out right this painful of the very process of education. Perhaps they simply haven't had the time with all of their activities in the banks the corporations to sit down and ask themselves what is the meaning of education. Now i wanna take a little time out today and discuss that and i hope it reaches them everything else. I've said they seem to. Somehow it found out about so. I hope they'll listen to this now. I think the goal of the educational process is to create human beings who have human concerns. Human beings know and understand themselves and are able to pass human judgments on what's going on around them. Education should not mow the mind according to a prefabricated architectural plan. It should rather liberate the mind. It should liberate the mind from establish definitions and plans. The mind has to be liberated merely in order to perceive the world to see society. Do understand what is advantages or disadvantages are now. I wanna talk a little bit about the relationship between political ideas and opinions on the one hand and the educational process on the other. I've been asked over and over again. How can you really be committed to the struggle for liberation and leave your ideas outside of the classroom. Leave your political opinions outside of the classroom now. I maintain that political opinions should be brought into the classroom. They belong in the classroom. I think that education itself is inherently political. Go out to be political. It ought to create human beings who possess a concern for their fellow human beings. And we'll who will use the knowledge. They acquire in order to conquer nature but to conquer nature for the purpose of freeing man a freeman from enslaving acids. But i'd like to leave this foremost and talk a little bit about another kind of political as ation of education. The university has become political in a very overt. Since it's become political as far as politics are defined by the controlling political apparatus in this country. No one i don't think can deny the fact that universities continually received research grants from government which are directly related defence research grants which forced the scholar to develop more efficient means of for example furthering the war in vietnam. This is a political ization of the university. We've had to put up a very hard long struggle. And we continue to ways that struggle just in order to bring more black and chicano students and faculty into the university fact that a few years ago.

"All right so our first topic. you know. we're not gonna be able to talk about this much longer. Which is a fabulous fabulous thing. Oh boy but we are going to talk about what's happening in terms of white house. Politics for a moment is getting interesting. Yes on tuesday attorney. General william bar finally went against donald trump's lies about the election and told the associated press that there was in fact in no evidence of widespread fraud. In other words. He was telling the truth. Thank you william bar for doing that. Time too far. He's feeling a little like he doesn't owe anything to trump right now. This point because he's on the outs and so he's getting a little Anyway when he did that there was backlash from right wing media and also from trump who is still claiming fraud. One month after the election and who on wednesday night posted a forty six minute speech filled with more lies. It's been reported that donald trump is also considering all these pardons for his children. Don jr. eric ivanka his son-in-law jared kushner as well as his lawyer rudy giuliani. None of them have been charged with any crime. They would have to put on paper. What are the crimes that they have allegedly or not committed in order for there to be a part in as far as i understand so there's a lot of shall we say political chaos that a lot of people are still addicted to but i'm over it. You're over but it's like roman times you know it's like a bad. Pbs like caligula show anyway meanwhile while that is happening and give it up for billy bar finally took him a couple of years but he finally stated facts meanwhile while this is all happening joe biden is forced to stay patient through the chaos and continue with his transition and while i do think this whole trump side show is going to continue even after he leaves office. Maria and i think he already has Whether the big cable news networks are gonna cover him. he'll have the right wing covering him no matter there's this whole question about the future of politics after trump right so we talked about how much black lives matter and the movement for racial justice this year has impacted right the election but then on wednesday former president barack obama and also bestselling author now please suggested movements like de-fund the police are counterproductive. I guess you can use a snappy slogan like defunding police but you know you lost a big audience the minute you say it which makes it a lot less likely that you're actually going to get the changes you want done but if you instead say let's reform the police department. So that everybody is being treated fairly. The divert young people from getting into crime. And if there's a homeless guy can maybe we send a mental health worker there instead of an armed unit that could end up resulting in a tragedy suddenly a whole bunch of folks who might not otherwise. Listen to you are listening to you. So the key is deciding. Do you want to actually get something done. Do you want to feel good among the people yard agree with and if so but here's the thing the way he it. Why did you have to be so dismissive of a move because it comes across as dismissive. Why couldn't you just be a little bit more respectful. I guess why couldn't knee of picked up the phone and had a conversation with angela davis. Okay who in many ways is his political godmother all of ours political godmother's because of her lung jetty and resistance and survival throughout all of this and what. Angela davis says is they weren't aware of all of the problems in the judicial system of the way in which it has been historically used and continues to be used as a weapon of oppression against black people. They wouldn't be so defensive about the whole thing. How can you say that This demonstrate that there is Justice in the american coors when we know that the jails prisons across the country are filled the brand with black and brown people. We know that on death row right now. The vast majority of the prisoners who are going to be executed are people of color. We know that when a black person is picked up from community and brought to jail he's going to have to depend on a public defender because more than likely he won't be able to hire a good lawyer and this public defender. What is he going to do. he's going to tell him to cop a plea even though he knows. And many cases that his client is just as innocent precedes. And so i'm going to try to do now. Is to build the very same kind of movement that was built around me and the kind of movement that liberated from prison and ordered to free more brothers and sisters. Because that's that's a real significance of this victory and

"Doc. It's interesting to kind of reminds you the journey of like how mainstream now black lives matter is where like fifty five percent of the country is in favor of black lives matters. So that's the majority. And at the time like when seven years ago is such a radical idea but now it's like you can. Say it without feeling closet complete shit storm because really the pendulum has swung to the other side of people are like, how are you not on board on this even though we always were always you know Santana. Yeah. It's. It's hopeful though like I interview Gloria Steinem and I get very simple about these things in she said, she was like more people agree with me now than at any other point in my lifetime. So that's good. That's progress that means things are changing and it is it's hopeful that these ideas are mainstream we just need to like dig into the meat of them. That's interesting because it. Similar to others an article will link in the show notes but I able to Vernay interviewed Angela Davis which just like like the most delicious interview ever her Vanity Fair, there's sort of saying the same thing of like it was interesting to secure how much hope she had an seeing where things are now and she looked at John Lewis is life like most people don't get to see the change happened within their lifetime and how much they he had gotten to see. Also, like putting into question of like you know they're taking down all these monuments but like we have to do more than just that sort of like looking at like these practices that are still left behind and really talking about the real roots and issues of lake, you know the effects of like things like global capitalism and us not being afraid to go deep into the roots and operating the roots of a lot of these like painful systemic things.

The Case for Police Abolition

"At. The time of this recording one thousand seventeen people in the US have been shot and killed by police this past year, and as the numbers continue to grow. It's got meany questioning why we're even need cops in the first place, but the question of polishing the police also makes a lot of people nervous so today we're going straight to the source in talking to an actual abolitionist. Bill Fina Y'all on. It's an important conversation that you don't want to miss. This is the nod. We've heard it all before. Give Cops Body Cams hold them accountable, cautious need diversity and bias training. We need community policing black police. We need Brown police, but as the years roll by an efforts at reform are showing no signs of stopping the brutal violence against black people in this country, a different call gaining traction is the call to abolish the prison industrial complex, which is made up of prisons, policing and surveillance all forms contrary to what a lot of. Of people believe this isn't a new school. Of Thought, it's been around since the eighties, and it's been embraced by people all over the world. Much of what we know about it. Today has been studied practice and built upon three black women. We have to mention Angela Davis Ruth Wilson, Gilmore and Mariam Kaba Today. We're joined by bill. Fina Y'all want a Baltimore based restorative justice practitioner. Who writes about abolition and how to practice it in our community? It'll pheno. Thank, you so much for being here today. It's awesome. Have you thank you? Thank you for having me so abolition. Is Abolition essentially what we talk about admission we're saying is that a world cannot just without the physical presence of police in prisons, but a world where we all have, our needs met in a way that we do not have to commit the crimes that laid us in prison, and with policing right, and so abolition forces us to complete your frame how we think about the concept of prisons and lease, and to be honest about the history of it prisons. Prisons were created as an alternative to slavery. It says so and the thirteen th amendment, and so when we look if that that violence and genocide history of policing prisons, abolition says it's not possible for us to have world rabies dynamics exist so I'm sure we've all seen a lot of the back and forth in the media, and even just an online conversations about what's reformist versus what is abolitionist. What sorts of things are absolutely out of the question or Believed that we can have rover prisons and policing exist. We just have to make it better. And abolitionist believed that is not possible behalf to completely get rid of it and create new systems and structures. How did you come to fruition? Personally had become part of your life identified. The woman is came to woman is during college was definitely my sophomore. Year of college and I thought begins to stand what it means to exist as A. A black woman in this world I understood this system is structured. That are against US I think a lot of people don't understand that the reform to slavery with prisons. The reform to slave catchers was police, and so when you have stopped with that truth as a woman as as a former refugee as an immigrant to this country will hold, I, experience, it was not possible for me to say I love blackness and not become an abolitionist. Something else. That's near and dear to your heart, and also the work that you do is the story of Keith Davis Junior talked to us a little bit about Keith and his story so keep Davis Junior. Is a twenty eight year old black man for Baltimore, who was shot at? Times by the Baltimore Police Department in June of Twenty fifteen. He's being accused and they're saying that it gun was founded in Keith was connected to a murder. In March he was sentenced to fifty years, and after five years in five rows, Amish. It's been an ongoing case that five years WWLTV's dedicated to. Always bring her into the space. Kelly Davis has four beautiful children and Khloe Amari and Jaden and his case is so connected to what was happening in Baltimore after Twenty fifteen after the murder of Freddie Gray talk to me a bit about how keeps life and story relates specifically to your Abolition Work Keith case is connected to abolition one, if forces us to see kids humanity beyond what he did as a child chief, interaction with the criminal justice system started very early, and what we know is that it was a result of all of the conditions that came with Keith birth his stories parents. Parents his poverty, and so forth, and so as a result of that chief found himself funneled into a system. That once you've been in there. It's easier to keep coming back. If Selah commits a crime, we have to ask ourselves if the necessities of somebody is not being met, and instead were thrown them in a cage cage is actually more violent and transformed into a even more violent person with Keith case what we've seen has been a blatant disregard for any kind of laws, any kind of good faith and what we saw for the past five years is lies and lies and lies and confirms.

"That soul man, which is. A black face comedy about in a fluent white man who passes as a black person to get scholarship money for Harvard. Here's a bit of the trailer. Harvard. Great these are the eighties. Madison Ashby decades with watching. All it took was little, so I'd like to meet my good friend Kareem Abdul. All the Oh my God oh Mike. How are we not outside with cosby decade? The cars we decade. Was this a big deal back then. Was it a controversy back then because I remember when it came out, and I'll admit I i. actually really liked it, but I was a kid. Yeah, it was controversial. I was I was in college when it came out the conceit the movie is that in order to get a scholarship to go to Harvard. He had to pretend to be black and so I I do remember G- because I was in college at the time that a lot of black college students were insulted by that because number one. It wasn't true there. They're tons of scholarships out there for A. A white people their scholarships out there for people who are hours to sentence to said, and then sort of beyond that I. I'm surprised and a little disappointed in myself that the whole black face element of it was something that I didn't really react that much to you know we knew I knew what black face was of course, but as I remember it and again I was at a college in Indiana I remember. My friend's objections to that film was what it was implying about. How much easier it was to financial support to go to college. If you were black and we just felt that wasn't true. And then there were there were shows that were groundbreaking for their time like Sanford and son, which which actually really opened the door to black, center, TV comedies, but they can also fall into stereotypes, can't they? Yeah they can and. What I liked about Sanford and son is is that it was a starring vehicle for Red Fox, who was an amazing nightclub comedian? But even as a child when I was watching it. It reminded me a little bit of a much earlier comedy. You Know Amos and Andy was black center comedy as well that that featured an entirely black cast, but the characters were so stereotypical that the end of Lacey Pe- protested the show you know. I'm not saying Sanford and son was that bad, but there was a part of that. That felt kind of weird to me. I was really conflicted when. When I watched it as a kid, because I love the actors and the character so much, but I felt like the setting and some of the jokes they were telling We're kind of insulting. Yeah, I mean, even as we go into the late eighties in the early nineties in living color, which is still a beloved show that you can still catch in many places. I showed some of the sketches to my children, and they just had blank looks on their faces and I realized there are so many things they thought well. Why is this even to you, mom, we don't. Making fun of people like this in this away well first of all. When you're up here and I can say this guy because I have four kids. Nothing you do is cool or funny to them so. Stay a little bit of that with a grain of salt is what I would say, but in living color was an interesting thing because they would push the envelope in some of their sketches, particularly sketch men on film where they had to black gay men reviewing films, and I think we have a clip where they talk about another forty eight hours, the Eddie Murphy film must check it up. Eddie Murphy was back in another forty eight hours soon. I'm sorry. This movie just got off on the wrong track I feel that they should've spent more time with the real story is in the prisons. Bassim all sweaty. Altogether No. With no one to turn to other. So. If, we're being honest, black.

"Here since one thousand, nine, hundred, fifty three. I got a phone call from career. Heart, the principal Port Townsend High School, and we talked about possibly putting together an outdoor graduation commencement ceremony at the wheel end because everyone can be in their car. And so I said absolutely. We've been thinking about that already, and not only. Would you like to do it, but I'd like to go ahead and donate that as a poor townsend alumni myself. Good evening, everyone. And welcome to the one hundred thirtieth commencement exercises for Port Townsend Highschool. People are going to be in their cars listening to their FM Stereo to the various speeches that are being made on the stage, but we think we've got a natural setting for a social distancing venue, so that everyone is comfortable and goes home, safe and sound. Good Evening Class of twenty twenty for those of you who don't know. My name is Kinkaid Gould, and I have the honour presenting speech you as Valedictorian. With the emergence of covid nineteen, our senior year at high school has been anything but normal. Although we've all been affected in different ways, we've lost access to physical school and a place where we could see each other in person everyday. We've lost spring sports. We Lost Prom, but let's not forget what amazing and memorable experiences we've shared. They say. You can't go home again. Is Head. Come back when last time..

"Is a good example of how difficult it is to completely stop the spread of Corona virus for nearly two months. The city hadn't reported any new cases of Covid nineteen but last week, a fresh cluster of cases emerge in some lockdown restrictions had to be reimposed. Joining us now is NPR's Emily Fang in Beijing Ellie. What is the situation there today? Does it appear that this new outbreak is under control? That's what Chinese disease control officials are trying to tell the general population today. A senior epidemiologist with the state government said everything is quote under control. They have been mass testing neighborhoods that have been designated as high and medium risk, because there had been a handful of positive tests in those areas. These are free today. They've discovered twenty five new cases in the city. That's about the they discovered the day before, but that brings the weekly total to just over two hundred, not good, but it's not horrible compared to what you're seeing still in some other countries. And they're saying that this new outbreak came out of a food market now is is it a similar kind of market to where people think? The virus originated in Wuhan. No in the sense that it's much much larger, it's at least twenty times. The size of the seafood market where the virus originated in Ohio and I've been to this Beijing market. It's called. The itsel seafood vegetables fruit its supply. Basically every, grocery, store and smaller local market with the fresh produce that people eat in the city every day. And authorities so far, think fat. The virus was somehow imported from Europe into China. They still don't know how it got to China. What kind of food may have transported it or whether? It was on packaging? They know this because the strain of the virus they've identified from samples in the market resemble strains that are prevalent in Europe more research they've done today shows that the strain actually predates the strains that have shown up in Europe. Suggesting that this strain began in China to Europe and then came back to Beijing. and. So, what do the new restrictions the lockdown? What does it look like now? It's a bit of a soft lockdown, so they designated some neighborhoods in the city that are higher risk because they've had a handful of cases schools. They're movie theaters gyms those have been closed down temporarily. People have been told. Do not travel outside of the city. Many other Chinese cities of said if Beijing resident comes to them that that Beijing person will have to quarantine for fourteen days. This comes during a holiday weekend. Actually next week is Dragon Boat Festival so many people in the country are hoping that terrorists would start traveling again spending money, but that's probably not going to be the case anymore. and again they're doing mass testing and certain neighborhoods. Now before this happened before this reimposition of lockdown measures just give us a sense of what it was like. Because at this point in this country, you can dine outside at least where I am. You can dine. Outside can't go inside. You gotTa wear masks everywhere. Were you still in that situation where you back to kind of things were normal again. No the most painful frustrating thing as things had just gotten back to normal the week before this cluster broke out in Beijing, people had just taken down the last of the temperature checks, the last of the world off gates, too many of the residential and commercial complex across the city. You could finally move around freely and eat together in groups when this cluster broke out in the market. Those NPR's Emily Fang in Beijing Emily. Thank you thanks journey. And it has been an extraordinary week at the US, Supreme Court with two very big rulings, one upholding deferred action for childhood arrivals of Dhaka another protecting lgbtq employees from workplace discrimination, both with the courts liberals on the winning side joining us now is NPR legal affairs. Correspondent needed Totenberg. Haina. Hi there well, let's start with that Daca case. A five to four ruling with chief, Justice John Roberts, writing the opinion and joined by the liberal justices on the court, but Robert's made clear that the ruling was based on procedural issues. Where does this go from here? Well, it's a temporary reprieve. I think it's unlikely that the trump administration can get its act together to Redo the whole process of unwinding Daca a by January, but certainly if he's re-elected, he'll plan to do that and may try to before that. We know that Donald Trump doesn't like being repudiated and they may try, but there are all kinds of procedural hurdles that they never crust, and some of those things are very boring. It all concerns, the Administrative Procedures Act. It's exactly the kind of thing that Chief Justice Roberts referred to as squaring the corners, and in this case cutting the corners, and he's a big believer in things like the administrative procedures act to control the executive branch to make sure that it acts an orderly way doesn't run roughshod over the other branches of government. In this case after all the administration, the trump administration even argued to begin with the court had no jurisdiction here. The court said yes. We do have jurisdiction. You didn't do it right. Go back to square one and try again. What about the other big ruling, this week on Monday six to three ruling on lgbtq protections in the workplace, the majority opinion was written by the conservative justice. Neal, gorsuch appointee of president trump. Did that surprise you? That when actually surprised me less than the fact that Chief Justice Roberts joined him because at the oral argument, he indicated at least some tentative view. He might be thinking that looked. The words of the statute are very clear. They bar discrimination based on sex period end of subject and the only exception, really into law is for houses of worship will in both of those cases. You had justice Roberts siding with the Liberals. I know you're going to say no to this just because it's not just these two cases, but is Roberts the new Kennedy. Look. I'm not a mind reader and the position of chief justice is in many ways different from every other justice. You're not just a lone wolf. The court is in a very precarious situation right now the way that the vacancy created by the death of Antony Scalia was filled with the Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell blocking any consideration of President Obama's nominee for almost a year, and then the appointment and bitter confirmation process for Brad Kavanagh a year later after Justice Kennedy retired and that vacancy was filled by. President, TRUMP All of that has led to the Democrats being infuriated and the hard left has been pushing various proposals to alter the stock actual structure of the court at the same time that the hard rights influence on judicial nominees has only grown and become a major, maybe the major talking point for the GOP and its base, and not just on social issues, but for the business community to so Roberts is having to navigate some very tricky scholes in order to protect the court from attacks on his legitimacy, and to ensure that the American public sees it as a fair. Institution, that. Law and applying the law and restricting the president and restricting congress where necessary at the same time he's a conservative with a small see. And remember he cast a similar vote to this Daca vote a year ago..

"It's been a minute from NPR. This week we've heard a lot about what police reform could look like, but our next guest says there are limits to how reform can address the racism inherent policing Angela Davis one of the most influential activists in the United States her work around. Of Gender, race class in prisons has influenced social movements for generations. Forty years ago Davis was a fugitive on the FBI's most wanted list once caught. She faced the death penalty in California and was later acquitted. Urges. She spent her life fighting to change the criminal justice system and Angela Davis joins us. Now welcome to hear now. Thank you very much. It's a exposure to be on the program. You've been an activist for almost half a century. Does this moment feel different for you? You know this moment does feel very different from anything I've experienced in the past. This isn't extraordinary moment. A witch has brought together a whole number of issues of course I. Don't know whether it would have unfolded as it did. If if not for the terrible covid nineteen pandemic, which gave us the opportunity to collectively witness. One of the most brutal examples of state violence it's a moment when we are recognizing that it is important now to start the work that should have been done over one hundred fifty years ago in the immediate mass of slavery. You were an active member of the Communist. Party as well as the Black Panther party which J. Edgar Hoover called at the time. The most dangerous threat to the nation it was also one of the many organizations. The FBI sought to disrupt under its counter intelligence program. I'm really thinking back to just a few years ago. When black lives matter was described as a terrorist organization. Do you see the parallels here and do you think we're seeing a possible shift in that thinking well? I won't say I pull. The people have always organized whether we're talking about the Sunday schools during the era of slavery were black women a top to children and adults how to read. Whether we we're. We're talking about the the era of the the rise of the urban. League in the end Lacey WB VOICE IDA B wells in struggle against lynching for hundreds of years, black people have passed down this collective yearning for freedom from one generation to the next. We doing now, what should have been done in the aftermath of slavery? I've heard you say we can't eradicate racism without first eradicating something you call. Alyssum, can you explain racial capitalism? The term racial capitalism is designed to encourage people to think about the ways in which capitalism and racism are interlinked. Slavery was the very foundation of the emergence of the industrial revolution of capitalism has always taken advantage of and exacerbated existing racism 's. but what you're saying too is that it's also important as many people are now taking a deeper look and being critical of their own roles in upholding racism that they understand how capitalism is intertwined into that. Yeah, and it's it's. It's difficult of course because we live in a world that has been basically created by capitalism I like to use the example of The taps on immigrants that have emanated from a this administration. And to point out that just as immigration and Migration particularly from the Central America in other parts of this region, but also in other parts of the world that migration has been occasion by the fact that people's home economies have been completely disrupted in often destroyed by the impact of capitalism, but I think that when we say that we are opposed to mass incarceration, we also have to be willing to say that we are opposed to the repressive and racist treatment of immigrants. I think that This more global perspective, which has offered by feminism helps us to understand how our lives are intertwined with those of people all over the world. I WanNa talk to you a little bit about police departments and the prison system, so you've said that both of those systems are quote, the most dramatic expression of structural racism and that in order to fix it. We have to have an abolitionist imagination. Can you explain what you mean by this well? Yes, an one raises a demand such as deep fund. The police people tend to think only about the negative process of getting rid of the that institution not about. The way in which we can re imagine the meaning of Public Safety, and so I think now we can think about funding. Agencies and individuals and organizations that will help address issues of health physical health. This is the opportunity of for us to begin to re imagine the meaning of of of of these. States president trump will be visiting Tulsa Oklahoma tomorrow. He had originally planned to visit on June teeth. which as we know is today? The celebration of the end of Slavery In Texas? This is significant because Tulsa is home to one of the worst acts of racist violence against black people in American history. Your thoughts on the significance of this, what is so exciting about the current moment is that? People who have adopted a more progressive view of history and people who recognize that now we have to begin the process of rooting out of racism in our country are increasingly representing the consensus. But what I do think is that we have to vote for ourselves and for our own ability to continue to engage in activism and the conversations. That will allow us to envision the possibility of a society that is free of racism and. Sexism and Homophobia and transphobia up. So. I think that the next election is going to be about. Aiding. That will allow a those a calling for the abolition of prisons as we know it to begin the hard work of of creating new institutions. Does it feel surreal. Because as you mentioned. This has been a major topic of discussion for over sixty years. Now you are a champion of this idea for really long time, and now in a matter of thirty days sixty days were now having true conversations where where there's action. Well, you Yeah, it's it's it's. It's very bizarre. It is kind of surreal, but I would also say that. Many of us have been making the point for a very long time. that. Activists who are truly committed to changing the world should recognize that the works that we often do that receives no public recognition. Can't even actually matter. And the protests and the up surgeon activism that has happened. As a result of the catalytic got impact. The police murder of George Floyd in and the murders of Brianna, Taylor, and I'm not armory, and and Tony mcdaid and. Ratio. Brooks, the response would not have been what it has become. If people had not been doing on the ground work I am just so happy that I have lived long enough to witness this moment and that I see myself as witnessing this moment for all of those who lost their lives in the struggle over the decades. I do want to ask you about that. You know I mean during the sixties and seventies, you saw several black activists die at the hands of police and other things and today, several black activists who were active during and after the protests in Ferguson Missouri have died, and many more have chronicled their bouts with depression. You kind of spoke to what drives you, but really what has kept you going all of these years and really what I hear from you is perhaps not a sense of optimism, but a sense of hope a sense of hope, yes. I think ultimately we all have to be optimistic as no doubt, so many black people who were enslaved believed two hundred three hundred years ago. That treat 'em was possible. And I think that younger activists have learned that that it is important to address depression and trauma and to do that within the context of our organizations that our movements and not assume that people have an individual responsibility to take care of their mental health. Make that a collective responsibility. That's Angela Davis Scholar Educator.

"From NPR and WBZ. You are tiny Moseley I'm Jeremy Hobson. It's here now. The city of Tulsa Oklahoma is bracing for president trump's first campaign rally in months tomorrow. Coronavirus cases are on the rise in Tulsa, which is also the site of terrible massacre of black people ninety nine years ago this month. The Oklahoma Supreme Court is weighing whether to stop the rally from happening NBC. News, senior politics, editor Beth. Fouhy joins US now. Hi, Beth! Hey Jeremy. And let's start with this rally. The reasons we just talked about, but the trump campaign has been pushing ahead. This is going to be an indoor rally with thousands of people. What is the benefit for president trump of pushing ahead with this despite all the concerns? Yeah, we'll president. Trump really needed morale boost at this point. He's been out of his favorite venues. which are these big every rallies rallies you know for quite some time ever since the coronavirus took hold in this country, and they really give him a lot of energy, they give him a lot of verve to heap, going to remind himself that he has a very large throng of fans that will show up for him anywhere in anywhere in. Cheer him on. We've seen lots of polling out in the last. Last couple of weeks showing president trump falling behind Joe Biden, fairly significantly in in a lot of battleground states in addition to nationally. We know from our reporting that president trump is is quite concerned about the polling that indicates that he's got problems winning a second term, so going out and getting in front of these fans is something. He wants to do just to get that to get that energy back, but as you point out Jeremy, it's a very fraught situation we've. We've seen record numbers of people. Coming up with infections both in Oklahoma, and in the city of Tulsa where he's going to be We've seen a lot of folks. We're going to show up on the streets probably to protest in addition to all those folks who want to go to the rally that could be a potentially combustible situation and president trump. This morning tweeted threatening protesters, saying that that basically he would not put up with. Anything that smacks of of of bad behavior, so we could be in for for quite a weekend. On the Democratic side as we look toward the election about four and a half months from now Minnesota senator. Amy Klobuchar has withdrawn her name from consideration to be vice, president, Joe Biden's running mate and says it's time for a black woman or women of color to be named to the ticket. How much pressure does that add on Biden to now pick a woman of color? Well, we know that president excuse me Vice President Biden has been getting a lot of input from Democrats that especially now given the people that we've seen around issues of race that he really ought to pick a woman of color, and he certainly does have women of color on his list. We know that Senator Comma Heart Harris's on his list. We Know Congressman Val demings from Florida is on his list and likely Atlanta Mayor Kisha bottoms, but keep in mind. Mind Jeremy There are other women on his list who are not black or African American, and we know from our reporting that President Vice President Biden. Really feel strongly that he whomever he chooses has to be somebody who could take over at a moment's notice as vice president, and is somebody that he could work with as president in the Oval Office, and that ultimately those will probably be the factors that help decide the outcome of this of this of this. COMPETITION TO BE HIS NUMBER TWO At somebody who was vice president for eight years. He knows exactly what the job entails, so he? He's looking at a lot of factors there. Meanwhile, we had these Supreme Court decisions this week. The president tweeted this morning that he will soon submit enhanced papers on Daca after the Supreme Court found that he improperly tried to end the DACA program that shields young immigrants known as dreamers from deportation. How hard is he? GonNa push on Daca this point leading up to the election. It's so unclear. I mean he did send out that tweet, but of course president trump doesn't always follow through on things that he says he's going to do in his tweets. It's a difficult situation. I mean even the most. Concerned folks about immigration and illegal immigration. We've seen in polling typically say that they believe dreamers, these kids who were brought to the country as children by their parents and have lived here. Basically, their whole lives are people who should be able to stay so president trump doesn't have that big of a base to work off of in terms of trying to make this a helpful political issue for him. There's just no evidence that anybody outside of the sort of most hardcore immigration rights. Opponents are for preventing these dreamers from staying in the country, so it's it's more than likely that president trump will will step back from this issue. Let me finally. Ask you and we just have about Forty seconds left here about the John Bolton book now the justice. Department is trying to block it from publication, although most of its revelations are already out, wh, how is this all playing out in Washington? Yeah I. Mean basically the the argument to keep it from being published pretty much out the doors. As you mentioned Jeremy, I mean the book is already been shipped some two hundred thousand copies, according to the publisher Simon and Schuster and we know we've seen major news organizations all over the country basically report all the major findings, so at this point, it seems more symbolic to to prevent the release of this book and probably unsuccessful, but obviously it's the what the Justice Department is doing is playing to an audience of one president trump. WHO's quite upset about this book? Will and and many people have said if John. Bolton had so much to say. Why didn't he say it? When the House Democrats asked him to testify in the impeachment inquiry, but I'm sure he'll be asked that in his interviews Beth. Fouhy, senior politics, editor NBC, News and Msnbc Thank you. Thank you? The State of California is reconsidering its ban on affirmative action policies. The state assembly voted this week to send the question of affirmative action back to voters assembly person Shirley Weber introduced the legislation after twenty five years of quantitative and qualitative data.

What do I say but Minnesota landlords born land grabs raised land of ten thousand lakes land of butter sculptures of Beauty Queens always on best places to live list, which is interesting because all those who come an asterisk that's like. Like best place to live if you're white, because there's this thing, called the Minnesota Paradox. It's a term was coined by Samuel. L. Myers ends a term used to describe the fact that there are these huge disparities between the experience of White Minnesotans. And the experience of Black Minnesotans and those experiences are backed up by data data that says from the Minneapolis police departments own statistics that black people are about twenty percent of Minneapolis is population, but are also more likely to be pulled over more likely to be arrested net force used against them more likely to be the victims of police shootings at least in the data from two thousand nine to May Twenty nineteen. The wins there's. A disparities, there's huge economic disparities between white and black residents of Minnesota huge educational disparities.

Something that gets into your body into your DNA something that changes you physically not just emotionally, and we've talked about that mostly in the context of childhood trauma, but today's episode is about racial trauma and policing.

Also WanNa say for this episode starts. It is very weird to be reading ads before and during this topic it feels as off as they sound, and also advertisements and sponsors are how we make this show, but wanted to acknowledge that just how if it feels if it sounds jarring to you? It felt jarring to us, too, but enough of me here is Angela Davis. This is Minnesota Public Radio News and I'm Angela Davis welcome to call to mind spotlight on black trauma and policing as you know the killing of George, Floyd has sparked peaceful demonstrations as well as destructive protests in the twin cities and across the country George Fluid was a black man killed while being forcefully detained by a since fired Minneapolis police officer. That officer is now facing murder and manslaughter charges, and we also know that Minnesota's Department of human. Rights has now launched an investigation. Looking into the last ten years of the Minneapolis police departments actions for systemic civil rights violations for many people, George. Floyd's killing is the latest graphic instance of a black American being killed by the police and his homicide, the most recent national example of historic institutional discrimination against people of Color and indigenous groups so today we are putting a spotlight on trauma of black Americans and how it intersects with policing. And, we have some experts on this secure virtual community conversation to help us out today. We're joined by Rasma Minicam who is a licensed independent clinical social worker as well as a cultural trauma expert, he is the founder of justice.

Hi! How are you? I'm doing all right. You know that's a tough question to answer these days, isn't it? When people ask you how you doing it it it. There's a lot there again. Welcome to all of you. I want to start with this definition of racial trauma. Mental health professionals know that racism and discrimination they have strong and continual traumatic effects and the sent Dems I'm told of racial trauma. Those post traumatic stress. Disorder known as PTSD so resume. This is your field. Let's talk more about this definition of racial trauma, and and how it affects black Americans. Can you help us with that? Yeah Yeah so so I although I agree to to some degree that definition works in terms of racial trauma in doesn't get to really the day to day aspect of it like what actually happens to a body that is born into a system where the white body is considered the supreme standard of humanity, right that what happens to a black body that is born into that system and so. One of the ways that I have tendency to think about it is that? There's this weathering affect of we talk about racial station and white by the supremacy there is there is a weathering affect what I'm in.

"This weekend. My prediction is a win at your prediction. He will probably win. But he shouldn't even be at the vent. You would think he would take the high road and remove himself and have his name quietly removed. Avid feeling not only win. He'll get a standing ovation. Anyway, let's go to Deborah in Long Island welcomed the Kurdish and Dominic Cardy. He WABC Deb your high Curtis. I can't believe nobody's bringing it up. I saw when I googled his name when this first came out that his mother and Angela Davis are best friends. So you start pulling back the layers of this. It's reprehensible how does this happen somebody in very high places in Chicago machine got this kid off, and when he referred to in his he gave a little speech after he was acquitted about the movement. Okay. And as we all know Angela Davis was a Black Panther. Okay. And he referred to the terminology the movement for all the people in the movement. So I can't believe that you were anybody bringing this up. Okay. It's a so appoint with me. I'll tell you why. Deborah Dominic Carter, you may have remembered me mentioning this when I was in high school. I love Angela Davis. Manjula Davis with the big fro? Yes. I'm stuck on the word love right now. Oh, your definition because your definition of love could be completely entirely different than most of our definition. They had a poster of her in my room. And that's what I thought this is what led to my first marriage. I married someone who looked almost like Angela Davis who remember had free. George Jackson and the Soledad brothers from Soledad's state prison when they had the shootout with the correctional officers in California. She went on to be tried in federal court in San Jose and beat the charges. So let me make sure I got this. Right. You married? An African American woman based on Angela Davis, partly because she looked like Angela Davis Korean. But I will tell you this one of the worst moments in my life is is that actually gonna see her sister. She was at some communist rally down at Irving plaza, right? Then all of a sudden sister announced that her sister Angela Davis who couldn't be there. So she was accepting the award from like Gus hall who is the head of the American communist party at the time. So let's. Would have no time for me. She she didn't like guys crushed. Now. What in the world, am, I suppose the Saint to come back from that? Well, I blame that from my first marriage. I, you know, just my personal opinion, my personal opinion. I hope he doesn't win tomorrow night. I think it sends all the wrong messages. He will win up next. You're the expert on the mental health crisis. Yet, the mayor.

Bobby Seale, Bill Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn on Police Repression, Fred Hampton Murder & Prison Strike

"Sir. This is democracy. Now democracy now or the warrant piece report. I'm Amy Goodman with one gun solace with part two of today's edition of fifty years ago that right fifty years ago this week, the nineteen sixty eight democratic national convention in Chicago became a national spectacle as a major political event turned into chaos that culminated with a police riot, much of it unfolding on live national television. While Hubert Humphrey was nominated as the democratic candidate in nineteen sixty eight inside despite the fact he didn't run in any primaries outside was where the news was where police were clubbing teargassing thousands of protesters. For more. We continue our interviews with Bobby Seale founding chairman, Black Panther party was in the protests at the beginning in Chicago. Bill Ayers was arrested on August twenty seven fifty years ago and Bernardine Dohrn both Bernardine and Bill longtime activists for peace and racial Justice, former SDS that students for a democratic society and whether underground members. I mean, he Goodman with Juan Gonzalez one? Yes. Yes. With Bobby Seale again to follow up a Bobby on the conversation. We were having that the end of our previous segment when you were talking about how once Richard Nixon was elected president, he ordered. His aides to begin immediate eradication of the Black Panther party. One of the interesting things that most people are not aware of is that years later report came out in the New York Times that the f. b. i. had conducted a CPR secret poll among black Americans and found that more than twenty five percent of African Americans were supporters of the Black Panther party felt that the Black Panther party was fighting. Their interest is significant portion of the America of the African American population of this country was supportive of of your revolutionary organization. And yet as you were saying Nixon immediately ordered that you be crushed, could you talk about what happened in that first few years of the Nixon administration to the panther party. Exactly the year of nineteen sixty nine is the year. Now, remember I said he had a meeting with j. Edgar Hoover and Jade ago who were in the December the first week of December stated nationally on television that we were threat to the internal, the blackout, the party is a threat to the internal security of America. Come come. What was February seventeenth seventeenth. John a buddy Carter and John Huggins will murdered at UCLA. They were the leaders of the black path to party and loss Angeles California now. But she Carter really had gotten out of his gang group. 'cause he, he ran a three thousand member gang and he created a political organization call wretched of the earth delay to become and he later became rub. They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana. I'm talking about the, they blew up the office and demands. I will literally got the crew Clinton of blew up that blow up that building. And I'm telling you. In San Diego brother. Bell was opening up to San Diego office at eight AM in the morning, and the police and FBI came jumped out of cars and came into place and shot him dead killing murdering. So I'm just says that period of tacking by the end of that year with the murder of Fred Hampton and then the shootout in Los Angeles, four days later after that cetera I have in my organization, I had twenty eight dead blackout to party members sixty nine wounded and defending ourselves. We defended ourselves and many of these attacks. By the end of that year, fourteen police were kill because we shot back when they came in shooting in us. We did not play. We shot back
