S. the first was reported elsewhere in Washington state on Saturday at least two schools are closed and the governors declared a state of emergency so Washington state one place we're certainly watching but but other states have seen the numbers go up as well right Intel last week the only corona virus cases in the country had some connection to travel overseas but the first case of someone apparently catching the virus in this country with no connection to any other country was reported in California at the end of last week right after that another case like that was found in California along with similar cases in Oregon and Washington state so this is no longer a situation of the virus just coming into the country from elsewhere it's spreading here too well so what what you're describing what might make it sound like we're suddenly seeing it spread around the country but that is not exactly what we might be seeing here yes so what's probably happening is we're finally starting to test widely for the virus in this country all the testing had been funneled through the CDC in Atlanta before this but state and local labs finally got the go ahead to do their own testing so what may be happening is that we're just starting to discover cases that may have been here for a while and catching new cases quicker I talked to mark Lipsett from Harvard about this I think maybe a a metaphor or analogy is your high school play people run out on stage in the dark and get themselves sat and then the lights start to come up and you start to see what's actually there those people didn't just arrived there at the second the lights go up you know in fact a genetic analysis of the virus in Washington state came out just yesterday and that suggests that the virus may have been circulating kind of silently in the state for weeks and hundreds may already be infected then why wasn't more testing being done sooner so one problem is that the first test kits the CDC center local state labs it just didn't work and the the CVT finally did fix that problem letting states start to do their own testing but the second issue was that the CDC was using very strict criteria for who could be tested the CDC finally relax those criteria and I talked to Scott Becker about this he's the executive director of the association of public health laboratories I certainly do wish that the testing was available sooner there was this very unfortunate challenge in the production process and it did put us a few weeks behind and the worry about that is we could have lost a crucial window to contain the virus and you're prevented from getting a foothold and start to spread undetected so the CDC is taking a lot of heat for this and a lot of questions about why it was this big delay and when other countries were testing widely for awhile which is a huge deal on a lot of questions to answer for the moment it's about tackling this this outbreak so what happens next testing is really finally starting to ramp up now state and local labs should be testing nationwide by the end of this week and the FDA's now letting lots of other places do testing like hospitals so you know it wouldn't be surprising if we start finding infections all around the country and as that happens you know it's important remember that doesn't necessarily mean that the virus is suddenly spreading a lot faster it could be that we're just finding the spread that's been going on for awhile without anyone realizing it here's more clips that you get from Harvard you're using that analogy again about stage lights shining a spotlight on the virus the lights are still quite dim because we haven't done much testing and as they become brighter will get a better sense of what's already there all right so obviously be be following that and and and trying to figure out what is there when it comes to this virus NPR health correspondent rob Stein rough thanks so much you bet David democratic presidential candidate Pete put a judge was scheduled to be in Dallas last night rallying voters before super Tuesday instead he flew home to Indiana and suspended his presidential campaign and your Sam green glass ones in Dallas and sends.

Still be relevant and something that people are still recommending to each other and to see it really improving not only relationships let's but in actual situations that are impacting people of color across the country and even outside of the United States. And we should say that it came Out in the paperback edition in September. And you you wrote a new introduction for the paperback which I thought was a preface For for the paperback that I thought was interesting Were you kind of talk about some of the I guess some of the things that you sort of wish. You would disgust in the original edition Can you talk about a little bit about how you came to those realizations. I guess. Certainly I mean I think this is something that faces every writer. Where is the things you right? Stay static even the raiders grow and change and an often we grow and change because of what we right and so writing a book on recently. I book you. Even the process of talking about the book and traveling in hearing from people added to what I felt like. I wish I had this. I wish I could have included this. It changed it added nuance to my own ideas. He is of what I'd I'd written and Ching and use also showed some areas where you know could have done more Or better and they think any brighter always thinks they could do more and I think any topic we write about. We could write multiple books about but you luckily when you have a paperback you get to at least give voice least to some of that instead of just carrying it with you and so it was really nice to have the opportunity to talk about what I would like to include things. I learned that you know my own privilege had kind of stopped me from realizing raising of just care that I could have taken in some areas of the book especially daily Issues facing people of Color. That aren't lack. That's my own lived experience Ryan But also things that I just didn't realize needed to be explained as explicitly as they did and so seeing it And then getting another Chanson very grateful that it sold well enough to. Do you know to be able to have a paperback edition. So that I could at least include some of those things and talk about it and people know that I- side and you know I'm not the last person to write a book about race and certainly not I and it's always important. I think think for us to recognize what more we can do and what could happen next. And what ask about cultural appropriation because we talk a ton about self care on this podcast and self care practices and I think a lot of what we're seeing in self care right now kind of is there is a lot of cultural appropriation going on and so I was wondering if you could kind of speak about how we can bring more awareness to the ways in which a lot of self care practices especially you know things that white women are doing our coach cultural appropriation. Yes certainly I would say that you know hard what I I I think we should look at is a lot of the idea of self care as it is. Popularized wigs was well within white supremacy by the idea to have this luxury time. Where you can set everything side is something that many people of colored never get to two and I would say especially women of color and so a lot of detractors? That are often adopted are not Mrs Sarah what we would call self care her but our survival by a lot of practices other cultures have come up with to get by to live or something that are you know survival. For communities communal practices religious practices very important practices are treated as luxury items as retreats for white the people and it's important to recognize why that's problematic and it's not problematic that anybody would would want some luxury in their life. It is problematic to sink that you can take something that was created for survivor. Where for community eighty or you know to hold an oppressed people together and not take any of the struggle not to anything to you? Reconcile your part in that oppression and that's really where we're the issue wise for. I think a lot of people. It's not that people want to practice yoga or you know. Go on a sweat or do any of these things. It's the fact that these things are since they are part of a culture that is being told they don't have a right to themselves and these things were created to balance you. You know in to fight off sloop. Russian that white culture has perpetrated and or have been held onto inspite of oppression of white culture. And so then to have people who don't have to face any of that who we'd these things for that purpose to say. Oh that's nice. I want some of that without also so thinking what can I do to ease the burden that I'm imposing upon this culture Or what can I do to make sure that whatever prophets Sweden eight from this actually goes to the culture that created maintains its is in itself just more colonialism white supremacy. And so I think for me. The focus is not necessarily on the act itself but in the imbalance behind it by the problem is the symptom is cultural appropriation. Russian raped power imbalance ends up looking like true appropriate. And what I would love. People to look at is the power imbalance to look at where the problem lies. What makes it cultural appropriation? Asian and tackle back so tackle eraser and our cultures you know tackle The way in which capitalism cuts communities of color out of any profits from their own creations. Tackle the Exploitation of communities of colored sat tackle the censoring of Whiteness in media And pop culture all of these things that make cultural appropriation that give teeth. Those are the things I would like people to focus on where oftentimes ends up happening. Instead is something that rise still with inwards premacy which is people WANNA list of. What can I do if I can't you know if I can't do yoga if I can't you no dress up like a Gisha if I can't do all these things what can I do and really what people are asking is this? How can operate the same way? I always have without feeling bad and instead if you you know people talk about how much they appreciate and love other cultures. New Celebrating other cultures was celebrating other cultures needs looking towards sustainment of that culture her and showing appreciation for what was given by trying to not be a burden and to lift any burden that you've placed and that's really what I want. People people start focusing on. Yeah I mean kind of along those lines. I love all the actionable suggestions you have in your book for how people can fight systemic racism. Right you can try. You can try to link to the stomach effects of racism whenever you talk about racism Can you you can talk a little bit more about that and explain why this is so important. I'm it's an order for a couple of reasons. One is that what people of color are are suffering from is not the sentiments the lack of love for White people right and a lot of times. We like to keep discussions on race and racism. Awesome in the hearts you know feelings and love in Area and what will it really is is system systemic oppression. It's Tau those opinions and feelings could be manipulated by the system or the power that our systems give those feelings so I could walk in the street and people can think whatever they want with me and I'm fine with what does bother me. Is that if they decide to act on it and they'd said outcome feelings about me because the color of my skin our entire air system our employment system our government our media will line up behind that action to make it more powerful and that's really what impacts the lives of people of Color and so when we're talking about issues of race it's important to recognize a that it's oftentimes is more effective to get people to see why something is a problem that they're doing if they see how her playing into something more systemic but also because that's really where the pain lies for people of Color and people of color don't feel heard when all the here is. I'm sorry if you felt bad when I did this because it's not not saying. I felt that you know if I get talk to her in a meeting by a white man. It's not just that it's rude to be talked over. It's because it plays into the general erasure and subjugation. That black women face in workplaces across the country right it reinforces that pattern and it's part of a long trail of events to harm and it doesn't exist from its own and so we need to tie to these larger issues a because that's where the real issue is. That's what people of color are talking about winter talking about these situations but also because people need to understand the full weight of what they're doing and they need to also know but it's the systems they need to attack and that when they fail to look at their actions. They are supporting oppressive assistance. It's not just a made a mistake or I did what I would do with anyone else it is. I supported a longstanding harmful racist system. So you know I am example. I think using the book Lucas. If you make a joke about people of color being late in the office we are actually doing is not just making a joke. You are up hoping a stereotype. Oh type that makes people was likely to be hired for jobs and that because we have racist systems that allow all black people to be judged in mass That you know are fever. Negative stereotypes that want to find reasons to hold old white employees above employees of color. Then you what you're saying is no longer just a joke and the harm that that brunt of that that joke fields which is not just the by person you're talking about but every black person an officer black person who would work in. That office is larger richer than just a few words. And that's really why we have these conversations and I think that's why it's important. I think everyone should know especially white people. You should know the broader impact of what they're doing because people of color are meant to feel that every single day we feel the full weight of racist actions agents. That's why we spent so much time focusing on things like microaggressions because there's nothing micro about that because they play into a large system that is crushing people..
