"Megan McCain. Now let's get things started. Hello and welcome to the view. You know how they said in game with thrones. Coming. Change is coming changes in air. We're in the middle of a new civil rights movement. Because yes today, the Supreme Court made the historic judgment that gay rights are civil rights and ruled that the Lgbtq Americans and community are protected from job discrimination now a lot of people were shocked and surprised about which judges fell into the six three majority joy. You were told in shock. I was I was shocked and I say Bravo Neal Gorsuch, and there's hope for America you now. I feel much better today about the whole situation. But you know what a disappointment this must be for the trump base I mean they overlooked stormy Daniels. They overlooked. The Jenin grabbed him by the genitals remarks. They overlooked. Making Fun of the handicap, they overlooked rocking children up taken them away from their parents, all the supreme, court and now this is the thanks they get on sure they are not happy today, and May I just say one more thing Alito and Cavanaugh, particularly a judge Thomas should hang his head in shame. This is a man who is in fact married to a Caucasian woman. which was illegal until nine, hundred, sixty seven, when the Supreme Court voted in favor of loving versus Virginia. They voted for integrated marriage in one, thousand, nine, hundred ninety seven right. Again decided the Supreme Court, which is way he sits, so he should know better the other two loss cases. But yes, I am has on house. Right so sunny. How much do you think it moves the dial for the LGBT community? Well Listen I. This is his Doric. There's just no question about that. I think this is as historic as. The two thousand fifteen same sex marriage ruling by the Supreme Court, but there's still a way to go in the struggle for rights for the Lgbtq community, because this decision only applies to job discrimination and it only it does not apply to jobs where there are fifteen or fewer employees, small businesses, and we know that one in six Americans are employed by small businesses. So you know there is no protection for that community in those businesses, the other thing is, it doesn't extend the right to. The work. A public accommodations it doesn't extend the right to healthcare doesn't extend the right to housing so that. Should be a concern to every American. Because these rights, this equality should be across the board. It is time for our LGBTQ community to enjoy the same civil rights that all of us enjoy and so while I am. Happy and I'm. Ecstatic that we have come this far, it's just not far enough I know that House bill passed the Equality Act that would extend these protections to things like medical care and housing and public accommodations, but it has sat in the Senate since two thousand Nineteen, and that is Mitch McConnell's doing, and so people should be up in arms because that bill needs to be passed. Right so now, some folks are saying it's a blow to you. Know whose reelection chances, but you don't think that this will have a big impact on his space. They're saying Megan. Is that how you what you think? I never right trump out i. just don't I learned my lesson in two thousand sixteen, I think one of the interesting points brought up. is about the fact that the Supreme Court has now legislating? A lot of issues that really should be done in our Congress and our Senate and. The Supreme Court is now. Being used to legislate and not just interpret the Constitution I. Think it would certainly an interesting time in history I think we should applaud. This civil rights moment and I couldn't have said it better than what joy and sunny said. All right well. I think it's kind of a great thing, but it's like many civil rights. We seem to piecemeal everything because realistically if you weren't gay or so, and so wasn't black or so, and so wasn't Hispanic your rights as an American would be very clear cod, but for some reason now we all have to get in shaving, so maybe we will figure out what what to do. Do because race relations right now in America, I think are at a crossroads and tonight an encore presentation of the documentary. Fall Los Angeles nineteen eighty to nineteen ninety two reminds us. It's a road. We have been on many many times. As a nation, it chronicles how a decade of racial tension exploded into uprisings in La and this was after the Rodney King verdict and it features A. Lot of people talking and you know John. Legend has doing an introduction. It's quite stunning. Let it fall Los. Angeles one thousand, nine, hundred to hundred ninety two airs tonight at eight PM Eastern on ABC, and we will be right back.

That's what he thought he saw he didn't he didn't. He didn't see him in being he saw angle, but I would reflection of himself revenue and naturally we need to understand about these cops. Are here we understand that there's cake ball and all these other or racist organizations that have been infiltrated in these in these costs. Here's another thing you need to do we need to stop supporting these businesses where these scared free coffee, free donors, free chicken, sandwiches, and all this other stuff. Stop supporting these people who give cops free things and then put it in a popular dancy. What happened? Hi, thank you for your call. Let's go to let's go to Rick in Detroit.

You know, put together something that could service us that stuff is right up there with healthcare, man. This is ridiculous. And it goes back to what we've been saying. We've got to start collecting those first party claims from individuals when they have these initial contacts with the police these people are not shooting us down like this by tenuously. These people have records in these communities everybody I have not ran into one situation. Where people didn't know that these cops were like that gung ho or have had a lot of contact with them and knew that they had a bad attitude. And I think we don't do ourselves Justice to not collect that from. People we need that stuff is good for police anchor beauty relations it helps. Everybody wants to know what people are going through when they have these contacts with offices, and the sheer fact here, and I don't think we're going to be able to make any any progress until we tighten up that information in that accountability piece, and that brings us back to, you know, the the local piece we gotta have proximity based organizing the problem solve it. Because people need to be able to follow their issues when I go out into my community and hear people talking about issues that they don't know about in places, they have not been then don't know that their own neighbors, and and all the people in their own communities are going through things, and they don't have a clue what these people are going through. Don't know these people are going to court and not getting lawyers and in a reasonable time catching a lot of financial cases, all of these things are going on and the and the callers make such a great point when they say. Say that we're battling on multiple fronts, and ideas, we've got a, you know, try to innovate and make that easier. We all need to join some organization that cares about what happens to us. Now, you so K to be in the engineering group, but you need to be in a group that's concerned about what happens to you. When you need advocates. When the police jam you up when the government is jamming you up when big corporations are jamming. And there's not a lot of people. And it just amazes me people the confidence to think that they got help or they could just call lawyer. It's not that easy. It doesn't happen. Like that.

"Go to WWW dot national action network. Yeah net. One the thing. That is interesting to me is we saw the police officer former police officer in Palm Beach convicted on the killing of Corey Jones. Hey church musicians. Stop his car had a problem cop came and got into a widow and killed him. I wouldn't spoke at the funeral. Ben Crump, the fun, and as we look at cases in Sacramento, and in Tulsa, where they refuse to bring charges in in this case where there was a conviction event that cases guzzle was a conviction Bill, they let the others. Go issue for me is as we need national policing laws. So we don't keep having kids and MRs in terms of going to trial, and at least letting the truth side. We also have to be vigilant on these cases. 'cause everybody says try if you don't try you're never win. If you try you're gonna lose some and Wentz, but the objective is we're not law. Is going to case. The case is we need new policing laws has one of the things we've got to deal with that man's convention. What these candidates? Just like HR one pass today. So we have to frighten the Senate we need some strong police accountability federal law that will supersede all of these states going from one to another different angles. You know, as well as I know that they are candidates now. And so as candidates they may speak out and say a few things I little concerned about this little concerned about that. When it comes to these cases. But we also need candidates who turned into elected officials or elected officials who are candidates who are hoping to seek higher office to speak out on these issues instead of being silent and being mute and not saying they wanted to I think one of the most enlighten mitten moments of President Trump is when we were fighting Trayvon Martin, and he took the time on in his presidency. Not by the way of not I said if you were. President obama. Did I say Trump? Oh, lord. I'm going. I'm going backwards. But now when President Obama took the time to speak out against what happened with Dr Martin and shed light on that issue. And so we're going to be holding these elected officials accountable and these candidates and count on today. Are you just speaking to us while you Dayton us? Or once you Mary are we going to get the same love? That's very important issue. Just being able to have elected official or Senator or congress person president or vice president speak out and say, this is wrong and wrong needs to be judged accordingly. Whereas giving you an example, one of the things that came out of dealing with President Obama Gandhi. Eric garner police killing in Staten Island, New York and the Michael Brown to these killing St Louis was the twenty first century policing commission that he had. Right. And they made seven recommendations which included consent decrees where the federal government would take over the running of local police departments that had a pattern and history of ignore police accountability for one of the first things that happened under the Trump administration was when William session. He stopped the consent decrees in these city one of the things we need a commitment from these presidential candidates. About consent, decrees were you restored. It will. You not appointed attorney general that was stopping one reason why our convention is different. It ain't just about who you like yelling. Somebody's name. We want to be a specifically on what it is that you gonna do. And how you going to do because you're dealing with people that are in the field that know what we need. That's right. That's right. Absolutely ready to take a call rip. Just let's go to Texas line for Brady, you keeping it real with revenue Allah revenue Williams. Good afternoon. Gentlemen, have to know. There is a situation where you know, I was prize at the you only got the judge Yellowstone a gave or metaphor for years. Incarceration. But I'm sure what he took in consideration. Whether they help. But at the same time, I'm not surprised that this happened because often discussing certain avenues where we have to LA books. And when the law was reading the laws white folks in write the laws to hurt themselves. They wrote those laws story individuals and also a Sunday school teacher and by three weeks ago, we had a lesson in regards good coming from bay. And I'm hoping that good confidence situation. Because now the is on other judges in depend I'm sure he's aware that a lot of folks are unhappy about him on receiving data matters time, maybe have some other brothers assist out when they go before some of these judge said, well, okay. If I give him a hard sentence. Now, people are going to look at it. Well, he got on that four year sentence to that. We can get some good out of this situation after all, and that's what I'm hoping that will happen mission. Good governor situation. But that's my thought for the day. All right. Well, thank you for your accent. I I mean, I'm always come from bad as long as we do not excuse the bad. Hotlanta AT L W A O K line to tie, you keeping it real with revenue aller Evan Williams. Wherever now Sharpton, Reverend Charles Williams, wherever Sharpton, I take your broadcast very seriously in this time restricted period three hours that you get that you contribute to the community. And part of the reason why take seriously 'cause I know so much about what you do as far as your actual work separate from the broadcast you to Charles. So I'm calling and make a correction because there was some incorrect information put out by me in a conversation with wherever Williams a little bit earlier this week, you made a comment to me when you said that you made a comment to me that sometimes my thinking is misguided. And I was like my thinking is not in this guy to you. This was just a couple of days. I usually all in twice a week. And I just happened to listen to the broadcast later on the afternoon because I was someplace where somebody was playing and I stay corrected. My thinking wasn't this guy in the previous? Conversation when I made the comment of our saying that I was paraphrasing my definition, well, what it means to be anti semitic anti semitic. And actually what I was doing was generalizing it, and I was not giving more clarity to it. And I don't want. Incorrect information put out by me on this broadcast on the serious matters that we talk about what I was trying to express was that I'm okay with prejudice people being in this country and expressing themselves. I'm okay with people having negative opinions about the Israeli government and Jews in general. What I what I would like is that we have a form that these people be allowed to express themselves became brought to the truth of the heirs of the thoughts and or actions on those thoughts, and that's really what I should've stuck set my own conversation direction. The edge the time because I do not call here usually twice a week. Make sure that I wanted to make sure that it was clear. You were right. I was misguided and my thinking, and I don't want that kind of information out there like that. It's a good bra. Al sharpton. Hi, thank you. Appreciate that. And I think that shows a lot of maturity, and usually when you call you a very thoughtful, and is interesting that you call right after guys say good can come back. And I am grateful, and I'm sure is for the maturity of their 'cause all of us could we don't mean when we say it now in terms of what you say in terms of a forum. I agree with you people need to be able to express their feelings. Whether it be biased, not where I think you run into a problem with that is when you have any elected official when Baystate something that can be may be biased like Steve king or someone. People have the right to hold them accountable cook their voting laws. See I think where I draw a difference. And I think you do too is that if you have a bias, and you're a private citizen, you have the right to free speech, if you are one that is governing you have the right to free speech, but we can remove you because you can't vote and the laws for people that you have admitted you have bias right right now. You're right. You're absolutely right and tied up the catch twenty two for a lot of us in the civil rights community and the activist community. You can't hold the governor Virginia to and all the sector state of Virginia to a standard and evens around like Roseanne Boston. And look the other way if it's done on the other side, so either we all for. Standing up saying people had the right to say it, but they don't have the right to say on the airwaves of my advertising dollars. And they don't have the right to say in government. All we don't you've got to be consistent. If you're going to have any moral authority..

Immediately call, all the pastors, we had about a hundred houses weapons today I mean it was very very aspired to know that the spiritual leadership of the. State of Florida was standing with Brittany and follow your lead from Clearwater but it was really the reason I'm calling Reverend Al if they do these two great ministers we got the same the message out that you will black ministers for trying to talk with the governor about Markeith Magog to put you won't arrested killer Markeith mcglockton and, and one of the things that you and co-counsel raised.

Martin but if we vote and one of them become, governor Dave committed going after this law and no one knows the seriousness of these, elections Then my guest on the live line someone that I, think has shown outstanding leadership he represents Louisiana's second congressional district and he's currently serves on the committee on homeland, security and the house committee on the judiciary and he is the president and I think chair of the. Congressional Black caucus my friend and brother congressman Cedric Richmond, how you doing Mr Chairman I'm doing great brother out let me just thank you Four going down to Florida, and raised more attention to. Such a critical issue that We're the only victims of stand your ground and people have to address it but bringing it Helps, keep the 'cause a lot I appreciate that I remember when Donald Trump was campaigning for president his message to blacks were African Americans have to lose and you in a meeting, with him where you use to do the photo ops and refuse to be props to him came in with a, fig volume of things, that we wanted the Congressional Black caucus under your leadership at laid out. And you have documented would we have to lose expand upon that file listeners, around the country Well first of all that meeting was not Just a, casual meeting I it was a business. Meetings so that's why. We, didn't take pictures, that's why we did Do the? Photo? Op thing so the president's question to the black community specifically was what the hell do you have to lose. Right so we produced a hundred and, thirty page policy, document, to, describe for him, exactly what, we have to lose so. Whether it was h see us whether it's discriminatory housing education, criminal Justice reform predatory lending we can go community policing we can go down the. List, of all of those issues, and we just wanted to make sure. That you understood that We not only recognize what problems faced African American community but we propose solutions to address so It was a respectful meeting he Followup he also offered to make his cabinet secretaries available so that we tell, them the same things. In demand some things from. Them They produced. One cabinet secretary they never. Responded to the document are any of our. Letters a win they invited us back to the White House we declined because we're not he wanted all of the. Blackhawks come over we're not in the champagne and cheese receptions and all of the issues we face in, our community to real What is the importance. Of the midterm election to our community to. Our country as you sit. There on vital committees and chaired the Congressional. Black caucus what is your appeal to people around the country of the significance of these midterm elections this November Well I answer it in, this way It means everything so if you are serious about, renewing and restoring the Voting Rights Act he can't do. It, without two hundred and eighteen votes If you're serious about ending discrimination. In the prison system. And enacting real criminal Justice reform and I mean Indy mandatory minimum sentences and doing all of the other restorative Justice Act that, would be included. You have to get to eighteen if you wanna make healthcare bailable to, our communities and to people in accessible and affordable manner You gotta get two eighteen and if you want us to wages starts to rise Almost is the same time Spain? Rate that you see corporate, profits ride can we have to get to to eighteen, so for the black community. What we've been articulating and even to, the rural community Elections have consequences An election you can't govern and you actually. Lose the issues you care about The tearing out, is. Going to determine whether we get to, two hundred eighteen members of. Congress democratic and those that are complaining about gerrymandering which clearly is, a problem they are those, that are complaining about voter ID and we said we need to fight them but we have. Gone against worst impediments and still was able to vote and get things done you've. Just listed the things that we want and what we need to get there you have encouraged people all over the country and members of the caucus to understand that. We are, going to, have to press through this and we cannot be discouraged Mr. Jim Yes our history in your life experiences give. Mistreated more than ever that when we come together and we fight we went and these issues that we're dealing with are so important that we can't let anything turn us around Way to go vote so whether it's photo ID whether it's vote intimidation we have to fight through it Because not just a few children's. Future depends on if we. Talk about the supreme court and what two justices of three justices could. Do we're talking about Robie, wait we could, be, facing Brown versus board of education So that's why I can put in you do over job educating people on why so important but we do have a. Real out of taking back. The Senate also if you look at Nevada Tennessee Texas Arizona we have. To, really put the Senate in play One of the things that, has always impressed me about you is everybody works there lane, and you've been very thoughtful and very. Serious as a legislator not just one seeking FaceTime on TV, we almost have to beg you to come on do media and but really the. Legislative work, that the people in Louisiana send you there for but again if we don't have, the votes in the Senate. And the votes in the congress we can't pass the legislation many of. Us are concerned about cavenaugh the nominee for the supreme court how does that selection or nomination of cavenaugh into sick with your, appeal. For people to come out and vote in November But just think about it in today's sitting cabinet had extensive riding on President Can be subpoenaed on or Really down he believes in the absolute power back If you look at Hispanics on worldly weight and other key has been on the on the screen now. Put twenty twenty five years and he Demonstrated his fall fall right judicial philosophy so when we start thinking of cases spring board whether formerly incarcerated people had the constitutional right to vote And all of those issues related we have, to we have to make sure we have just been And who are on the side of like kings balance speed that will. Do Justice and love and nothing in his background That Let me also ask you, congressman the Congressional Black. Caucus annual conference will be next month what some of the things that you I mean to come out of this year's caucus CBC and Washington Well Part of my goal when I became, chair the Congressional Black caucus is to re-engage and strengthen our relationship with the civil rights. Community, so That's you that others to make, sure that we're fighting in a coordinated way although we all have different roads so she. Is And you legislative, conference will be That thought, process which since it's football. Season I'll use a football analogy we will be.

November and And when, we realized that all of the roads we have to play we know that for some people it'll be to legislate Lawyers litigated five teachers and others it'll be to educate for some like you you educate. And agitate and for black people who are doing well and think that, this is not necessarily they're fighting that they've made it And they need to donate so if we can just get everybody to play their role in a serious manner I think that.
