"People and you have a real economy that is hurting and the people who are hurting most in it are the less killed that to me is not a recipe for social harmony. These inequalities became even more palpable on may twenty fifth minneapolis. Police officer derek. Chauvin knelt on the neck of george floyd a black man for eight minutes and forty six seconds killing him. Bystanders recorded floyd's brutal final moments which set off widespread protests about police brutality and systemic racism americans continue to have difficult and meaningful conversations about police reform representation and how we should view our collective passed in july. I spoke with princeton history professor eddie globe junior who had just released a fantastic james baldwin called begin again james baldwin america and it's urgent lessons for our own glide reflected on our likelihood to embrace real change around racial issues with respect to the killing of george. Floyd do you think. America has changed and is on a pass to change. Nah i'm not sure yet. You know so. You're not saying no you're not you're not sure. Yeah you know. I mean there's a moment where james baldwin is interviewing benjamin chavis a former president of inability c p a part of the wilmington ten and this is for his documentary. I heard it through the grapevine. And there's this startling moment were baldwin says in effect. We're we're still living under the slave codes a startling provocative formulation but he's talking about policing in the country so when that police that former police officer had his knee on george floyd's neck and but that look on his face with no regard for the humanity of the person underneath that me. That was an echo. That was the through line in american history. That's different that's familiar to every parent every black person who has any sense of awareness accomplish cop look at any may be. You may be a very nice man trying to figure that out. You know you've got a gun late in that way. Let's only way to ray to it at all is gonna one of us may have to die but you know people that that public lynching was the match to light to tinderbox. Where in the moment. Where is the possibility change. I call it a moral reckoning but there's no guarantee were already starting to hear pivots right. We're already starting to hear it. So we'll see. Are we hearing those pits. Because people grow tired and they can't focus so much on one thing at a time or it's just gravitational pull back to where we were before It's a combination of things. There's been a de formation of attention of the last few decades You know where we move quickly as as we can click. So there's that there is the reality of a global pandemic and the incompetence of an administration that has failed at every turn to address the fact that this pandemic is killing americans at alarming rates. What three million infected in over one hundred thirty thousand dead as as of this conversation so so there is that but then there is. There is america's has a tendency to exhaust itself fairly quickly when it comes to race matters. It wants to congratulate itself very quickly and then expect gratitude. Is that why you think that there's some things that have happened very quickly. It takes a while to change. Attitudes takes a long while to change. Culture take some a time to change laws but you know. The washington redskins are no more. Various statues have been taken down real things. Are those performative things which is become popular word today matter. How do you think about those things matter. They matter but they can't be the substance of the response right immediate matters for example that the mississippi flag has been taken down with the battle flag of the confederacy. But at the same time. The the governor signed that piece of legislation he also was denying legislation vetoing legislation. That could've fundamentally helped poor black and white people in the state of mississippi so there is a sense in which The symbolic shifts are critical in announcing perhaps the beginnings of a shift in how we think of of one another but they can't be the substance of our response but oftentimes again given the fact that were such an immature nation. And you can explain what i mean by. That was so immature that we want to be congratulated for every gesture. And then there's the expectation that we should be grateful. You know so. Governor cuomo can tell the protesters you've achieved what you want to achieve gone home now really really version of completely different setting but version of donald trump wearing a mask for the first time publicly in wanting to be congratulated in exactly and admired for doing the bare minimum that is necessary as the leader of the country. One hundred and thirty thousand people have died exactly exactly so we need much more would need much more. So we're on the precipice we'll see what will have is black lives matter movement like the civil rights movement of the sixties or. Is it something different. Something different you know. We need to think about the nineteen sixties as a historic elaborations. We tend to read it as the norm. But when you think about the history of the country the sixties in a stand out as abnormal. But i wanna say the black lives matter is kind of like a a broad rubric which a number of different political Iterations your political organizations exist so we might. It might be better to think of black lives matter not as a movement but as a slogan that organizes different or a slogan by different political organizations in this moment so when we re black lives matter as a movement. We want to identify leaders. We wanted to identify agenda. We wanted to identify particular persons. Who are engaged in a kind of concerted organized effort to do x y and z. But we'll strategy exactly but if we think about black lives matter as general sensibility. That's organizing different ways of expressing our discontent with society as it is now. We're looking at for a little bit more complexity. Were being a little bit more. Nuanced are now and the analogy. I would use as black power to think of black power. As a movement is to lose sight of all the different organizations that were part of black power from the black panther party to to the us movement to the revolutionary action movement to black studies movements that led to african american studies in universities. I mean it's just a variety of political political organizing. that's happening underneath that rubric. So by tend to resist reading black lives matter as a movement. Instead i think it's it's a rubric under which different kinds of grassroots are doing extraordinary work scholarship on race and inequality continued to pour forth from thinkers across the country in october writer.

"That's the main reason biles fell to that I can address it through more community based interventions I felt with this project that would be like no other project at. This is not a kind of project that would sit on a shelf. I felt that with although I didn't have Unity based research. I've been part of a lot of community justice organizations in Toronto and never feeling that I could use that to make any changes. I was always on these committees Iranian Justice Committee. Never feeling that I was doing. I thought okay by half at action for justice sat on a lot of communities advocacy boards. Mafia Ni- did anything special with that windows opportunities. How can I? Now incorporate that knowledge and expertise into research and rarely do address the issue so I saw all of those opportunities with my project So that's something that we definitely want to talk. A little bit more about. Is How to make your research more tangible and concrete the change in policy that we're trying to pass but I think it's also important to just check back with bed and not just assume that everyone knows what environmental racism is and so could you briefly. Tell us what environmental racism is and Kinda what it looks like in the Wisconsin in terms of how you described it in your book environmental racism term that was coined in the United States in the mid nineteen eighties. I Reverend Benjamin Chavis and it can be defined as the disproportionate location reciting. A leading industries are other environmentally hazardous projects in primarily indigenous communities black communities and other communities of color that's the standard definitions of disproportionality The fact that policies lead to the disproportionate citing off toxic waste sites and other projects in these communities. The way of Nova Scotia is that it is the case in indigenous communities and black communities store all black communities Africans Beijing. They tend to be near to these waist size. Now I actually have. Students create a math for my project and actually shows us. Some people might want to dispute it but this actually shows that about conditions closer. Today's May size on my website. You will find the map. And the map has two layers one for business communities communities difficult at all and paper meal's incinerators and made stops and you can look at that map at see that indeed. These communities are closer to those websites. Now now also does not argue that by communities are not near. These sites are But they're primarily located in black and addition as community so the definition I provided to earlier about environmental. Racism is certainly a case in Nova Scotia And other parts of Canada worse I would say an primarily in additions community. So let me go beyond a social reluctant. Canada it disproportionately impacts indigenous communities certainly more than black communities. I was on reason. Is African communities here. Nova SCOTIA NOT BLACK COMMUNITIES IN OTHER PARTS OF CANADA. That are disproportionately active. Why that would be. I think it has you down with us. We have that knows go should have been more. Rural has more rural areas than other parts of Canada. And that you have a black rural community in a way that you don't another Canada Israel. Black communities that gravitate towards urban centers of force. Because they're looking for jobs. There primarily originates but another Scotia. What's unique about community is that they're mostly in rural areas. They call historical communities out of the way many ways physical that kind of rural Africa compound some of the problems that they experience indigenous communities on reserves similarily that kind of out of the way nature of some of those communities oth- Results Garner forgetting about these communities or just a general tendency to discriminate against communities that are rural whether or not white communities are communities of color returned to discriminate against rural communities. They have access deserves as being often talked about not having side. Walser greenspace or of Medical Services Health Services and then you put race on fat and you put low income or poverty on top of that and that intercession actually is dangerous. Let me think about that. You tend to be or selected or a waste on for Lonzo or a deeper meals for example So yeah there's certainly no down that. Environmental Racism is saying in no associated in other parts of Canada. You know within your book the way you break down your your objectives in terms of intersection analogy. Could you describe that to us a little bit more? Yeah I it's important when we talk about anything whether it's house or social and political issues is important intersectional analysis because it intersectional analysis allows us to think through sometimes very physician again unique ways in which different population groups experience. Their lives is there as the political wise economic is and they're socialized and it's it's Ki- name. How ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM OPERATES TILL WITH ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM? It's typically those who are racial is those who are low income those who are living in rural areas or areas that are disproportionately him act. It's not intersection of race and socioeconomic status and social classes. Keep but I would also add gender to something that I didn't really see early on. I would say new to the project. I see very clearly now that you also need to look at the section of race and social class and rural and gender and why is that s because the pathways through which women and men are impacted on health impacts of environmental? Racism is very much gendered for example women and men can be found located and very unique in specific ways in the labor market in the domestic Sayer. Consequently they're gonNA be exposed to Putin's are toxic burdens in different ways so I think for example of how you can have the United States. Women are disproportionately located in jobs where they are responsible for domestic services or cleaning. I think hospitals to some extent on I think a hotels right. Who's cleaning your hotel. Rose typically rationalize lament immigrant women who are low and they're gonNA be disproportionately impacted by pollutants based on the work kind contaminants there You in a very unique way. For example who tend to be located in Manual Labor work or working outdoors are going to be exposed to different types of pollutants only look at the gender pathway through which people are exposed to environmental contaminants. We need to look at the spaces where they're hated in the workplace outdoors socially and in the home. So I think that's very important. We're looking at environmental racism. And I also think the other aspect of that intersection of race class Socioeconomic Status Gender and also cool is on the front lines of environmental justice organizing over the past eight years. Just being at this is used for my project. I noticed that it is women. It's about women is what White House like emerged. Where the man wired women doing all the work and US emotionally and psychologically to these women and this woman responded to me and now I understand why is the women primarily? She said England. This is part of our culture. This is part of a business culture. We are on civil for protecting the land and protecting the water. We are the life givers right because your life givers as additional women. It is our duty this was handed to us. We are responsible for protecting the land in the war so I do understand the indigenous culture that this is comfortable and this is their responsibility. How it's viewed right but still somebody's researcher might still get also the psychological impacts of environmental racism. I also wonder what's the cost. Psychologically and emotionally to women who are constantly and persistently fighting against this issue and in many cases for decades right so an intersectional analysis. Me Is really important because it allows us to think through on these issues right it makes me think of how everything is connected. Billy and that you can't think of one issue separate from the other. Sort of like a trickle down effect if I can say that so there's one thing.

"And we did that study in nineteen seventy nine and you went find that five out of five landfills in Houston were in black neighborhoods, six out of eight incinerators in black neighborhoods. I mean, it just the stats just kept coming. Well, you know, you can't get any more perfect. Than five out of five. That's batting a thousand what we found is that over forty years from the thirties up until nineteen seventy eight eighty two percent of all the garbage dumped in Houston was dumped in black neighborhoods and to understand you went more broadly, you found city owned smelters located in black and Brown neighborhoods in Dallas, Alabama on the largest hazardous waste facility in a town. That was ninety five percent black. Explain why historically this happen. I mean, we understand our history, and we understand the segregation of people of color in impoverished areas. But it also has to do with power that usually these areas are run by white politicians. Well, if you look at the case of Houston, it was a black middle class neighborhood of homeowners. And if you talk about where locally on wanted land uses such as Landfields incinerators, they generally follow the path of least resistance and historically African Americans in the south were not given the right? Vote. They couldn't voice their opposition in a way that would influence stopping these facility. And so it was a pattern that's tantamount to environmental racism. Well, then as you continue on again, if people are living in areas, and they're politicians that people making decisions about that area are not living there or are maybe not truly representing them. They may end up as you said with these decisions being made somewhere else about where they live. That's correct. And it was in nineteen Ninety-one when Dr Benjamin Chavis at the United church of Christ pulled together a dozen of us to plan the first national people of color environmental leadership summit in Washington DC, and we developed seventeen principles of environmental Justice at that summit in ninety one. And the first principle is that people must speak for themselves, and that's only fair just an equitable. So what do you think has to happen now specifically when it comes to environmental injustice, well when we look. At the assaults on environmental regulations and protection. It's basically an assault on all of us. And I think climate change is one of those things that make that really make this real. And so we have to all work on these issues. Let's talk to Berlet. I gotta ask you everyone. White black Brown is now threatened by climate change. I wonder if there's a part of you saying, well, you know, if you only hadn't written it off as a problem, just, you know, for blacks and people of color in the poor while, you know, this this whole idea of finding out discovery, and translating that inflammation. So that people can can see it for themselves. It's like very few people arguing with whether or not they believe in gravity, gravity is not something that you believe in Israel.

Few decades old now born out of studies showing communities of color and poor white are more likely to also be home to hazardous waste sites. And landfills in nineteen ninety the EPA began looking at the environment through the lens of race and class. President George H W Bush created an office of environmental Justice at the to listen to local concerns funnel grant money into local projects, President Clinton declared environmental injustice violation of the Civil Rights Act that thinking stalled in the George W Bush administration picked up again under President Obama.

He also opposed the bayou bridge pipeline which cuts through parts of Louisiana and Travis. I understand you're right. Smack in the middle of this eighty five mile stretch. They are known as cancer alley is mail. Yeah. This runs from Baton Rouge to New Orleans, and it's got something like one hundred and fifty plants and refineries. Look you and others fought the bio bridge pipeline had some successes. There was a stay. But ultimately, the construction was approved by a judge does that. Feel like you and others have failed because the pipeline was built oh, not necessarily in the sense. 'cause we bought a bigger coalition. Raise a lot of awareness in regards the pipe myself, how unsafe the all compared to any other transportation of oil and gas, and we show a high of a big environmental impact with those incidents rather than the ones on roads here. In other words, more incidents when pipelines than incidents carrying the same kind of product in trucks on the road. Just Malka see when always feel from a pipeline to the water system. Dad, definitely hard to clean up the various incidents across the United States with the people that did the by bridge pipeline. There's this oriented all Ohio ING, Pennsylvania stuff like that. They will harder clean up. Look there's a lot of statistics to back up just how much pollution hazardous material. There is there in cancer alley where you are. But what do you say to people who say building a pipe? Line produces jobs having plants produces jobs. Most of the times the job they do have they often they give into people out of state, rather instinct, and what not health that Sam sentimental value for our community. Like, we we'll Travis London.

So they kind of sound like the crazy Duff cousin of Macedo. You're saying you brought you brought attention to a plant with the ammonia industry kind of flagging a little bit.

"That's to green in Chicago green. Is green still web minute. Yes. I'm with you. Go ahead. Let me see. Can you hear me? Yes. I can. Oh, yes. To finish. My point was saying that my son is a police officer. And you would tell them we were sharing the cat. Steele gets shot for holding having a done in the car told the police offers for he shot him. He had a weapon in the car yet every white habit. He had the cards license and the state gave him permission to carry the gun. But we are. I think we are getting Duke, but both the ball because we have this false sense of citizenship. We are blacks in America. We're not American and to every one of our constitutional rights are held up by this government. And they've not they're not doing it not even voting so and then your life there snuffing out black man's life left. And right. And and we had a police officer here he black police officers several white he got shot twenty two times they tried to kill him, and they sent him to prison for shooting back in protecting himself against other offices. But this is what I'm saying. We're getting bamboozle by thinking where citizens both your gun needs to be kept in your house. I think is an unwritten law if you see a black man with a gun shoot him somehow some way, we don't get you all they sister was saying they take it out of the county. They give it to a judge that says for this reason or that we had a young lady got shot here in Chicago. And because the state's attorney did no foul she she thinks, he's fouled manslaughter charges or something different than murder. So the judge threw it off and let the police white police all we got. Get smarter than understand one or two things. And I'm not a we got a boat, but along with voting and condominium, we got a whole lot dollars back. We gotta strategize brothers. We if you don't carry a weapon, and I got a card as well. Maybe going care keep it in your house, take your family, but walk in the street with your firearm is setting yourself up for motor. We see time and time again, and there's no need a folding outfield. You don't even have to have the weapon out they walk up to your car and shoot you so brothers be smarter than the enemy that you're fighting. Because if you take your gun to the mall, the security guard here, Robin, Illinois. Now police pull up in shoot him a little boy being Cleveland plan with a gun in a park route. So we don't we it ain't they are who they are. We are the dummies we played a game. They want us to play that game anymore. You cannot walk down the street with your good because it's a license to kill every black man with a gun in public. So, you know, keep your gun in your house. Protect your family. Then be smarter than the double this coming at you. I think you've been let me thank you for your call. And you said a mouthful green. Let's go back to the phones. Go to Collins in Chicago WVU n Collins. Afternoon. I call you to let you know. I'm watching CNN, and they have found nooses in the state capital Mississippi. Yep. A whole display of Rachel. I hated. Yup. I didn't know the jets. I have noticed here in the news. I get the new Billiton tall and left letting kill you. And then then then game that option. So I'm wanted you to know that they have found nooses mean more than one in the state capital of Mississippi State capitol grounds. That's correct. And the vote in Mississippi is tomorrow. You're absolutely right. Thank you for your call. Let's go to doc in Maryland, W, O L be home of Senator Larry Yung. Doc. I pray to God that I would get a chance to talk to Reverend outside.

Baltimore brands, matter of fact, I'm gonna pay us president of NAN and Iran on your ticket when you ran for president. All right. Doc, I go back a little ways, which you my brother. Yes. Yes. Present you reference to a landmark civil rights case that may negatively affect the one hundred and one eight spec- us that we have in America. This is a case that will go to the United States for district court of appeals on Tuesday. December the eleventh we won the case last November in federal court judge Blake ruled in our favor. It was a case filed against buoy competent Morgan and the university of Maryland eastern shore, all falling under what's called the Maryland, high education commission, me hacks. We won the case, unfortunately, our attorney general who happens to be a democrat filed an appeal to the judge's decision. This case will be heard with all arguments taking place on December the eleventh nine thirty in Richmond, Virginia we're trying to get as much. National exposure where restart of course to the national newspaper Writers Association spoke directly without good sigma, brother Benjamin Chavis. Muhammad, Dave agreed to write a nationwide article on this case that may if it goes to the supreme court, and that's the next level that it would go to once it goes past. If it goes past the court of appeals, they will go to the supreme court. I fear is that the Ford ISIS season, which is the college equivalent to Brown versus board of education supreme court knowing how it's been rendering decisions. Could in fact negatively affect all about a spec- us. We're begging plan and hoping we could get the nation's number one freedom fighter to lose put this on the national alerts that as species all over America may be negatively affected by the smell. And the case again had the case goes to court win Tuesday, December the eleven. Nine thirty AM in Richmond Virginia in Richmond in Richmond. Yes, sir. And and you say the Maryland attorney general sued on this. Yes, he represented his client. His client wasn't fact the Maryland higher education commission. The suit was filed by alumnus all before a spec- you. So because he represents the governor of the state of Maryland and the Maryland, high education commission is an agency within the state of Maryland, he had the at least he claims he and I have spoken he indicate that his client the Maryland higher education commission requested that they appeal the decision. We won the case. But they have now peeled it. The case basically alleges according to the judge's decision. It found the state of Maryland guilty again, it was found guilty back in two thousand it was found guilty for second time of not only discrimination. But the duplication of courses on black campuses now being duplicated on white campuses. The state of Maryland was asked by the judge HAMAs. Do they think it would cost to make good the four colleges buoy competent Morgan at the university of Maryland eastern shore, the state of Maryland gave us to figure a two point one billion not million billion dollars. That's that's the cost that they estimated it would cost the governor of the state of Maryland who happens to be a Republican offered us one hundred million dollars. We found that to be an insult, especially when twenty years ago, a similar case was found where. Discriminates and duplication took place twenty years ago, and they gave them four hundred million dollars and they offer as one hundred million for four colleges. So we we need the great leadership of riverdell south is to make this a national issue. I said newspaper writers have agreed to containers national as well. I get the.
