"Been so pleasantly surprised by how well his tactics of influencing manipulating sarah. Beth have been that he. Some health thinks that he's going to be able to do the exact same thing with everybody else. And it's not gonna work in the same way for sure It's funny that he's trying this. It may like what where it makes little sense for hannah to use the veto xavier based on how house is set up it makes so much less sense to use it on kyle and kyle in knew that the plan was. If we're going to send sarabeth how you're gonna go set up next to her that that makes sense that one actually does make sense in terms of how the house sees everything like fake. Set up right like okay. We're trying to send sarabhai palm. Gotta put her her biggest friend on the on the block so that he can't give her a sympathy vote. It makes no sense to anyone in the house who it's been like so well established but the goal is to get sarah out to where therapath even is very aware of that it makes no sense especially for x.'s. Ally hannah here to be the one to do. That doesn't make any sense. It's really fun to watch him. Try and i think. I think while he has sarah completely wrapped around his finger. He probably is starting to feel like a little bit. That other people in the cookout are of not super in on his thing like yesterday. When you're talking about tiffany just kind of like up in leaving the conversation and be like i'm not doing this with you kyle. And kyle is right to start to worry about the fact that he is not In the greatest spot there even if it's subconsciously getting those vibes and so i'm sure he does wanna feel more safe in be taken off the block just in case he's in the position of being someone who probably should meet most Paranoid that if anything were to happen. In peop- members of the cookout were to flip. It would probably be on him or xavier and The truth the matter is while the cookout is doing a really great job. In many many other scenarios the big alliance does get pretty far and then starts flipping on themselves before they actually make it all the way down. So there's plenty scenarios where this could have happened. A theory here on kyle is that Especially once he hears that Hannah wants to use it on executor. He wants to manip- he just wants to win the situation like he just wants. No hold on eggs xavier. Xavier's i should come. I'm better than an exhibitor like i. I can talk my way into being talked.

Investigating The Racial Unemployment Gap
"In the month of January the economy created impressive. Two hundred twenty five thousand thousand jobs and the unemployment rate was three point six percent which means that the unemployment rate stayed close to its lowest point in about fifty years. Now on this show show. We have cited this low unemployment rate before as a sign of a relatively healthy labor market. And when you break it down further it's also true that the unemployment rate has come down in recent years for every group of workers but that does not mean that the unemployment rate is the same for every group fright. The Bureau of Labor Statistics breaks all these numbers down reports on the unemployment rates for different racial and ethnic groups for white workers for example the unemployment rate is down close to three percent but for black or African American workers. The story is really different. Their unemployment rate is still six percent twice as high as the unemployment rate for white workers and this gap gap between black and white workers is known as the racial unemployment gap and that is what today's show is all about. It is also the focus of ongoing research by Ben Gadget Lori a senior economist at the Center for American progress. One of the things that I find is that the black one implement rate is twice the white unemployment rate but the key is that gap has has been consistent since January of Nineteen seventy two when the Bureau of Labor Statistics started following it since one thousand nine hundred seventy two almost five decades ago that ratio of roughly two to one one for black unemployment to white unemployment has held in fact for most of that time the ratio has been higher than two to one and this unemployment gap between white and black workers also so exists when you focus just on workers with the same educational backgrounds or when you zoom in on the same age groups or other categories for example black women have a higher unemployment rate right than white women and black workers with college. Education have a higher unemployment rate than white workers who also have a college degree. Benda argues that this gap is the result of when he calls structural racism. Says it's really important to understand. What the word structural means in this context so we think about racism we think about individual behavior someone being racist towards Schwartz someone else structural? Racism is that system is created so that people of different demographic groups end up getting further behind an outcomes so example of that is the criminal justice system so their studies showing that White person gets arrested is less likely to be incarcerated than a black person so once someone gets involved involved in the justice system when they're incarcerated once they come out they are going to have lower outcomes than anybody else if we have people who are more likely to be incarcerated. That's GonNa Create Racial gaps in outcomes like employment We think about education systems. The schools that are in certain segregated areas are going to have worse Outcomes and then you create these racial gaps without individual behavior because the system is creating these gaps Benja highlights a few trends to show that structural. Racism is what's causing causing get employment gap and it's not the result of something else. The most important trend is the sheer persistence of the gap itself through both good and bad economic times. This this includes times when the labor market has been really strong or tight tight so when economists say tight labor market they are talking about a situation where the economy is so strong and so so many people have jobs. The businesses really have to work hard to find employees. This tends to make it harder for businesses to discriminate against groups of workers because they just need eight people to do the jobs. For example. Black workers or people with disabilities and mega says a tight. Labor market can have that effect. It's a great thing. And in fact. Participation dissipation in the labor force and participation means either looking for work or finding work has gone up faster for black workers then for white workers in recent years as has the labor market has gotten tighter and yet the racial unemployment gap has stayed the same and what that suggests is that even once. Black workers are in the labor force and looking for work they still face systemic barriers to actually getting hired that white workers do not face and so one thing that we know about with African Americans. Is that a Lotta Times Times. They are the first fired and alas hired. A lot of research has shown that this is the case in a lot of cases. It's actually the first fire. That's more of a stronger effect that when there's a downturn Africa's are usually the ones that are fired I for example during the deep recession that ended now more than ten years ago the black unemployment rate went up more more than the white unemployment rate and took longer to start recovering than the white unemployment rate did and a trend that big bang says cannot be the result of individual or isolated cases of racism. It's happening on to scale across the whole economy. That's what he means by systemic or structural racism a simple way to put it is that it's racism without racists and obviously Benghazi is not saying that there are no racist in the economy. Would he's trying to say. Is that to shrink. The racial unemployment gap policies have to address the system that creates a gap in the first place

"Thank you, Diana, and Ashley for sharing your thoughts. We'll get some more of your thoughts and questions in just a moment. But let's add one more voice to our conversation here with us at NPR, New York. Benja Akina bay plays. Tom Robinson in this Broadway production. Bengal, welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. What made you decide to play? Tom robinson. The at first it was the people involved intense to work with Aaron Sorkin with, with Jeff Daniels. It started out as a as a workshop and that was exciting in of itself. So but then when we had the first workshop and we read through this, the first time it was so beautiful. Yeah, I was just glad to be in the room and then but I had no visions of being part of a Broadway production. And even then I just it was just today, works out that was, you know. Would artists get together and do this. And then later on. After that, Scott reached out and asked if I would be a part of the production to come. I was very excited. Safes excited nervous. No. Is this kind of a daunting thing? I I was excited. Nervous came later. When I started to realize the gravity of that was coming together. But it started out in a very organic way for a long time. Like, like I said, we were in that sub basement for about a year need meet periodically. And so it was it was just a stupid for us in a sub basement, no windows. No one looking at us. And so we got to do our own thing in dig into the peace over and over and over so nervous didn't come 'til. They said. All right. This is the last day in the basement time to go to the Shubert. Why do we, we just stayed on darkened safe? It's. What was your relationship to, to kill a Mockingbird before you are part of that workshop, I didn't have as much of a relationship with new of it? I had read exits of it, and I think it's seen the movie years ago, as a child, and I liked the movie, but I haven't been taught the book as thoroughly as most people had I was in special Ed for the majority of my adolescent, so we had a different education, but I didn't know it was a big thing, as far as education to, to most Americans as far as, as far as this sense of nostalgia to most people. So I was aware of its of its prominence to, to to this country. It's got to be an interesting way to approach it. I mean, a lot of people think of Atticus Finch, Gregory Peck. And so that image is like never gonna go away, but there's also something I think to being an actor who doesn't have all that in the background. I mean remember very different play. But I remember when they adapted. Shrek for the staves that the actor who played donkey had never seen the movie. You've never heard any Murphy voice, the character. So he brought something completely different. So for you to kind of step into this with more of a virgin perspective on Tom Robinson. That's gotta bring its own challenges to knowing you got an audience, like fist doesn't sound like what I saw with, Gregory Peck. Yeah, it's, it's I took it as as as liberty to create because we were making a new play. And that was from from the beginning we were making own play. We were not ever asked to although we knew there was a great deal of pressure to live up to the book. We will never asked to do the book, as far as the creative team doing own thing. So that gave us a great deal of freedom, and there was no way, I was going to watch the film in. I'm gonna do Brock Peters. I there's no way I just had to whether I was going to fall or rise. It had to be on whatever I brought to that stage. Let's hear piece of what she brought to that stage in a scene from the Broadway at tation. Of tequila Mockingbird. This is where Tom Robinson played by Bengo Akina bay meets his lawyer Atticus Finch played by Jeff Daniels. Listen, Don Robertson. Yes. I'm Atticus Finch. Yes. Vernon Hockney told you how come? Yes, you tell you why. No, not really. I'm alive. I know the facts your case, if you so choose, I will defend you, an open court in front of a jury not much appears. But still group of people who are not guilty. Verdict is available excuse me. Yeah. Wasn't able to follow that either. Can't tell you how to plead but I can't and a must give you my best advice. You wanna be my lawyer? Tom, very less thing. I won't in the world be lawyer right now negro man what teenage girl. It wouldn't be going in with a win and hands but I'm compelled to defenders officer of the court. And in that capacity of taking a Salam to give him a best council, which is that you cannot, and you must not lead guilty and go to jail for a crime that you did not could not commit. That's Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch and Binga Aquino bay as Tom Robinson in to kill a mocking bird, there is no denying the parallel between Tom Robinson and the stories of many black men who came there after Tom Robinson is kind of the Emmett till of the literary history until the young black man, who was killed in money Mississippi for allegedly whistling at a white girl who later admitted decades later, that she lied about the whole thing, having happened which ended up with 'em until being horrifyingly mutilated beyond. Recognition. How do you deal with the present reality in the story, but has so much of a kind of a history etched in stone? It, it makes it more difficult. Because it's a very, it's a real thing, that's happening on that stage and enough that stage. So it's one thing to betrays a story on stage, but knowing that their real faces, and their real lives and the body count is getting higher all the time. And that in that it makes it to me, it comes at a comes at a cost, but it's I think it's a, it's a worthy end ever. I think is important to, to tell the story of Emmett till what I'm up there to tell the story of Sandra bland on. I'm up there to tell story to Martin, I'm up there. As much as I can contribute to that conversation. So it's if you're fortunate to be able to have that opportunity to, to, to, to, to work that out. I think the most important thing about one of the most important thing about the play is not necessarily the story, we're telling but the opportunity for the conversations that we get to have about race in this country because of the story, we're telling Aaron Sorkin, what about for you? How much of the present reality of race factored into the way you wrote this adaptation. Well, first of all, hey, Banka. On the other side of the country. I couldn't agree more with what Bank just set, which is that, you know, in addition to. The great pleasure and satisfaction of, of that, too, and a half hours that experience that the that we and the audience have in the theater that two and a half hours, the opportunity for conversations after that. And particularly conversations with and among teachers and students, we do any New York City, public school student can see this play for ten dollars. And we do a we've been doing throughout the school year. I think it may be coming to an end now at least for this year. Special student matinees where the entire theater, fourteen hundred people, our students on some of whom have never seen a play before. So this vol experiences is new and exciting for them. But just going back to your question. There are new conversations that we can have now in addition to the conversations we had back when I was reading the book in school. I wonder also about the kind of audience that you reach with this production in terms of not just school kids, which is fantastic that you can fill a matinee with fourteen hundred teenagers and expose them to Broadway, Jeff Daniels. The active place Atticus Finch talked about some of the people that he hopes the play will really impact, here's part of what he told MSNBC's. Nicole Wallace, every night, you walk out there. And we pin the ears back of basically white America. Liberal. Merica comes in, and they go we had no idea. It was that tough, and it's a slap in the face. It's a wake-up call. That's Jeff Daniels. Speaking to Nicole Wallace on MSNBC banking about that aspect that, that you may be reaching people in this audience who consider themselves woke white people, and that this may still kind of really punch them, right? Between the eyes. I it's. It's been an interesting thing I mean, ever since I well prior to this. But Ferguson really was like one of the top enough points when, when white people started to really vocalise all no, I didn't realize it was this bad or, or that things with this, blatant. And, and a lot of people, including myself were, we were not shocked at how bad things that how how little was acknowledged seen as real amongst amongst lot of white people. And so, again, getting to be able to do this place. There's a there's a, a place every night where we get to come to meet, and discuss these thing, the audience, and the people on the stage and you look out there, and this, a lot of white people with disposable income and, and with the ability to come see this production, who have said this before, who have, you know, most likely my, my share we share Saint politics points of. Views but still benefactors from this very racist system. So there's kind of this weird economy that, that exist that we, we know but to varying levels, but it's still in its prevalent all our lives, whether we're the benefactors or subject to. So it's been interesting. It's been very interesting. I'm Joshua Johnson. You're listening to one A. We should note that not all of you who wrote in our fans of tequila Mockingbird. Here's another message we received fair warning. It contains a little bit of a spoiler. So if you're not familiar with the story of tequila Mockingbird, or the give us about thirty five seconds before you turn the volume backup having said that here's what Jim left in our inbox, Jim from Washington DC when I first saw to Mockingbird it move me thinking about it. However, I realized another white savior movie, which Atticus Finch save. Today. But if you think about it the day, actually isn't saved. The black man who is completely innocent winds up not only going to jail being convicted, but then dead, I talked with some people who actually forget that the day never got saved. Jim, thanks for sharing your thoughts with us Aaron Sorkin. We got a number of comments about this kind of white savior, trope. Chris in Hamlin. New York emailed, I've always thought that to kill a mocking bird was a feel good story for my fellow white, folk, the focus of the stories on the white lawyer, who's trying to do the right thing in the face of social opposition, William Faulkner's intruder in the dust till something like the same story, and African American being unjustly accused of a capital crime in a small southern town, but gives the African American defendant agency in his defense. His white lawyer merely acting under his direction. Aaron what about that, this white savior trope as it might relate to this story? What do you think? It's a very big subject very important subject. So I make if you an answer that's longer than you wanted. Feel rock me anytime you want. I get it completely. In the play I let me say in the play is opposed to the movie. There are a number of white savior things from the book that, that were kind of turned on their head for instance. My favorite scene in the book, growing up my favorite scene in the movie, and I would watch this. When I watched the movie, I'd watch this scene. I got a lump in my throat. I'd get goosebumps, and it's a lot of people's favorite scene is the end of the trial Atticus has lost in the entire courtroom as cleared out Atticus putting stuff back in his briefcase. The courtroom is cleared out, except for everybody upstairs in the balcony in what was called the colored section they're all Atticus turns around to realize, they're all standing silently in respect, and gratitude and Atticus, walks by the Reverend Sykes, who.

Great pleasure, and satisfaction of, of that two and a half hours that experience that the that we and the audience have in the theater that two and a half hours the opportunity for conversations after that. And particularly conversations with an among teachers and students, we do any New York City, public school student can see this play for ten dollars and we do we've been doing throughout the school year. I think it may be coming to an end. Now, at least for this year special student matinees where the entire theater, fourteen hundred people our students some of whom have never seen a play before. So this, the whole experiences is new and exciting for them. But just going back to your question there, there are new conversations that we can have now in addition to the conversations we had back when I was reading the book in, in school. I wonder also about the kind of audience that you reach with this production in terms of not just school kids, which is fantastic that you can fill a matinee with fourteen hundred teenagers and expose them to Broadway, but Jeff Daniels, the active place, Atticus Finch talked about some of the people that he hopes the play will really impact, here's part of what he told MSNBC's. Nicole Wallace, every night, you walk out there. And we pin ears back of basically white America, liberal merica comes in, and they go we had no idea. It was that tough, and it's in the face. It's a wakeup call Jeff Daniels. Speaking to Nicole Wallace on MSNBC bingo Keno bay. What about that aspect that, that you may be reaching people in this audience who consider themselves, you know, woke white people, and that this may still kind of really punch them right between the eyes? It's. It's been an interesting thing I mean, ever since prior to this. But Ferguson really was like one of the dumping off put points when, when people sorts of really vocalise, all no, I didn't realize it was this bad or, or that things would this blatant and, and a lot of people could myself were, we were not shocked at how bad things where we saw that how like how little it was acknowledged as seen as real amongst among Salata white people. And so, again, getting to be able to do this plays like you. There's a there's a is a place every night where we get to come to meet and discuss this thing, the audience, and the and the people on the stage and you look out there, and this, a lot of white people with disposable income and, and with the ability to come see this production, who have said this before, who have, you know, most likely my, my share we share Saint politics points of view. Still benefactors from this very racist system. So there's this kind of this weird economy that, that exists that we, we know but to varying levels, but, and it's still in its prevalent all our lives, whether we're the benefactors from or subject to. So it's, it's, it's been interesting is been very interesting. I'm Joshua Johnson. You're listening to one A. We should note that not all of you who wrote in our fans of tequila Mockingbird.

The black man who is completely innocent winds up not only going to jail being convicted, but then dead, I talked with some people who actually forget that the day never got saved.

I think the average theater gore will notice that it has been opened up to you. You know, the thing about this book, though, it's timely. It's still now. It's still occurring. I mean Tom's death is still happening. This whole idea of Justice. What's right.

"At this point, you kind of will get a really good sense of the stuff that we saw because we basically just saw some extended scenes from those trailers. So the footage I wrote up a full, like sort of recap and reaction that you can read on the so I'm not gonna go beat by beat through a xactly. What we saw, but just overall thoughts on it. It has this really ICU book that REM. Finds me a lot of the modern JAMES BOND movies and actually watching this footage and seeing the trailers beforehand. It sort of reminded me a lot of specter, which is the most recent Daniel Craig bond movie. And because so clear for plays Lisbeth Allender, who is a a hacker who was living in Stockholm, Sweden, and she basically gets roped into. Fixing a problem from a Stephen merchant who plays a an NSA agent who is created what he calls the sum of all of my sins, which is a program that that basically allows people to access nuclear weapons remotely, like from their desktop, laptop computers. And so she has to sort of track down what's going on. And we've learned in the trailers that her sister is around and she is actually the one who's orchestrating all of Lisbeth problems, which is very much like what happened with Christoph waltz blow feld and Daniel Craig's bond inspector, and just the look of the movie reminds me a lot of bond. There's like some action scenes where it looks like straight out of double o seven movie, and even like there's a debriefing scene where she gets debriefed by Stephen merchants character, and they're both sitting on a bench in a museum which is exactly what happens in some of the most recent bond movies. So. I don't know. I feel like there's a lot of potential here, but I'm sort of like a positive to mixed on the footage that we saw. Leuke Stanfield plays an NSA agent, and there's a really interesting like long continuous shot of him in his office in Washington DC. That sort of shows a little bit of SETI Alvarez's style in this world. But, yeah, sort of like a weird positive to mixed vibe on the first few minutes of this film. I'm not sure this is going to be enough to get me excited for this one either a Chris. Do you have any interest in in the girl in the spider's web? This sounds very strange. I mean, I love the fincher one. I know not everyone loves it, but I thought it was great and I wanted more of his version of it. So you know, just the fact that he's not making it and it's a whole new cast real was already turning me off and I just find it really weird. They're turning it into like based on the trailer is a basal. Benja said they're turning into like an action movie, and that's not at all what the Fisher one is. I mean, the Fisher one has like action in it, but it's really a mystery thriller. And this sounds like a straight up spy movie, which to sounds very strange to me, so I don't know. Yeah. Yeah, it's weird. They said in the QA that all of the previous movies focused on the journalist, which I think his name is Michael Blunk list in the films, but this is the first movie of the dragon tattoo series that is going to one hundred percent tell. The story of Lisbeth instead of having her being like a supporting character sort of floating around the the edges of the story. So yeah, it seems like a slightly different take on it from what we've seen before, but but yeah, there was a lot of action. The first minutes and like the opening scene is really great. And that's the same opening scene that opens the most recent trailer. So if you wanna see that you can basically see that scene in full play out in the beginning of that trailer because it sort of opens with the first few minutes of that where she's like this avenging angel, getting revenge on this evil guy who's abused his wife, and you know, they talked.
