The CDC Doesn't Know Enough About Coronavirus In Tribal Nations
"In August more than five months into the pandemic Jordan. Bennett. was about to see some data she'd waiting for for a long time. Yeah. No a truly I was really excited because there hasn't been any data on American Indians or Alaska natives since the start of the pandemic from the CDC that's right. Until last month while universities had released a good bit of data about Covid and its effect on some. Native, American and Alaskan natives. The CDC really hadn't Jordan would know she's a reporter and editor with the Public Media News organization Indian country today she's also a citizen of the Navajo nation and she's been covering the pandemic since the beginning as well as a twenty twenty census and all of Indian, country no big deal just all of Indian country Yeah. The whole. That data that she'd been waiting to? was released by the government as part of a weekly CDC report in mid August the title of the top red. COVID nineteen among American Indian and Alaska Native Persons in twenty three states and when i read it, it was Kinda already something that I knew and a lot of native public health experts already knew and what I was really looking for is you know what is new that they gave to us the report said because of existing inequities, native Americans and Alaskan natives are three point five times more likely to get the corona virus than white people but anyone who'd been looking at tribal nations as closely as Jordan had could have told you that they were. Being hit especially hard for example, at one point earlier this year, the Navajo nation, which spans parts of Arizona New Mexico and Utah The nation's now reporting nearly four thousand in nineteen cases in a population of one hundred, seventy, five thousand had an infection rate greater the New York State. Eight PM curfews on weekdays and on weekends a fifty seven hour lockdown, not even the gas stations are open. That was just one tribal nation that got a lot of attention. Many others had infection rates that were also higher than the hard hit states in the northeast like the Colorado River Indian tribes in Arizona and California the Yakima in Washington state or the White Mountain Apache tribe in Arizona. And data from the states where many of those reservations are located weren't included in the CDC report, which gets it a larger problem. If there's data had you know where the impact is, how do you know where you could send testing to where there's a lack testing? You have to have that data in order to create policies into also figured out how to distribute vaccines. This episode was the CDC does and doesn't know about Covid in native American and Alaskan. Native tribal nations and how Jordan is working to get more data to the people who need it most I mattie Safai and you're listening to shortwave from NPR. This report from the CDC which linked to in our episode notes does say two important things. The fact that native Americans and Alaskan natives are more likely to get the virus. That's one. The second thing is that compared to white people young folks in those communities people under eighteen tested positive at higher rates. When it comes to these findings, the CDC did make one thing clear. Here's one of the researchers on the study, Sarah Hatcher it really important that the. This disproportionate impact. Likely driven by versus stinks social and economic inequity not because of some biological or genetic. Persisting social and economic inequities we're talking about access to healthy food housing income levels, stuff like that. Here's Jordan again the and other just like public health infrastructure or in like the lack of investment in the public health infrastructures in native communities and you have over credit households, anders a number of inequities that this pandemic is bringing out. More on that in a bit. But first Jordan says that the CDC report is notable for what it does not include this report did leave out tons of cases right now it only looked at twenty three states and it didn't include Arizona. Is One of the hot spots in Indian country. And they account for at least a third of all the cove nineteen cases according to the report. They also left out states like Oklahoma Washington. California Colorado thousands and thousands of cases. And researchers from the CDC were up front about leaving all that data out. Here's Sara Hatcher. Again, our announcement is really not generalize beyond those twenty three state overall. And we're not really able to speculate whether we expect the overall rate to be higher or lower we. The reason some states got left out was because the they recorded about race and ethnicity including that for native, American, and Alaskan Native Cova Cases was incomplete and that was really at least surprising to me because. I like how can you not capture this data right here you have Arizona where you know again, the Salt River Pima, Maricopa Indian community Healer River, ending community, White Mountain Apache their cases are thousands You had the tone, nation and Navajo Nation and the possibly Yawkey tribe. There's just thousands of cases in this one St. So many gaps like in this data as well. I think just points to how the CDC doesn't really know tribal communities and know that Indian health system and how it's built instead up. So, let's talk about that. Now. It's much more complicated than this. But basically, when tribal nation signed treaties giving up their land, the federal government promised to provide them with healthcare and set up the Indian Health Service, a government funded network of hospitals and clinics. To deliver adequate healthcare to tribal nations but that's not what's happening right now and what the pandemic is very much highlighting. For years the IHS has been way underfunded per person the federal government spends about half the amount of money on the IHS. Medicaid. And that's part of the reason a lot of tribes over time have step to establish their own privately run tribal health clinics. So throw history. They all IHS. But then tribes wanted to you know take hold and own and operate their own healthcare. So that's how these tribal health clinics came about. At this point, the large majority of healthcare facilities are operated by tribes about eighty percent in those facilities are encouraged but not required to share data that they collect on the virus but Jordan says, that's something a lot of them do not want to do not with the federal government or even with reporters like her even now as a Navajo WOM-. In as a Navajo reporter, it's also difficult for me to try to get the data. Because then I understand that like I grew up around my background is in health and so I I know you know it's because of settler colonialism but also research to a lot of times and medical research you have researchers going in parachuting in parachuting out and they don't give back that data it at least from everything that I've seen the past several months trust is like the main factor in this That's one thing trust. There's also the reality that doctors can get race or ethnicity wrong in California where it's pretty prevalent from what sources tell me some doctors will just check a box on native people because of their surname, their surnames, more likely to be coming from like a Hispanic or line next or origin like Dominguez or Garcia or you know today's assumed there Um Latin x but they're not, and if those people wind up dying that seem incorrect data can wind up on their death certificate right? You don't know what's going on or the pact of the pandemic if you don't have that data if you don't know what the person died from. How are you going to prevent it and prevent more from dying from it? These factors lack of trust underfunded public health infrastructure, racial classification all add up to a picture of the pandemic that isn't complete. For example, there's an alarming lack of covid hospitalizations data for native American or Alaskan native folks stuff like if somebody was admitted to the hospital, the ICU or even died compared to white people, CDC only has about a third of that information for Alaskan natives and native Americans and I think that's just again it just goes back to how well you know the state health department or even like the CDC or the public health experts they're not these tribal communities

What show do I ask what what context of camera filming do you prefer? I have pigeonholed myself into what I like to call in adventure cameraman. Yeah, like I like I don't do Studio gigs. I like being outdoors and I'm like, I like the topless. I like putting myself Through Torture to juice. Do you realize how strong I have is a person really? Yeah, why is that? It's just a thing in myself. Like I I've been like I was a runner back in the day and I got just like pushing myself a limit cetera. And I also like to the best thing about these Expedition. All these tougher stores is that at one stage you're in the middle of nowhere and like no one else in the world ever gets to see what year about you say. You are like you what you shooting or the location you're in no one else will ever get to see that ever like you are the only person to see that kind of like that aspect.

"Had no idea like there was no prize money, which I really like cuz normally most reality stars is a price need like a million dollars or something. This one was no prize money. It was just to see like how far they could go but we never told they were the N was so like they would like they would get like a map a place to hike in the compass and a couple of challenges or whatever like either your backpacks, but then they'll just have to follow this Compass. So we we also relying on like these contestants who don't know about anything about a compass there was like a normal six-hour hike would turn into double that like, they were growing lost all the time. Yeah getting lost. But anyway, so they would get to like the next checkpoint the next checkpoint and it basically see like they would quit one at a time. But if somebody quit then someone someone else had to carry more money, you know, like they will lose the person was carrying the person that you know, there's someone who's carrying so they don't know actually all like each other on like don't quite because we need you to if you can keep working with us and you can carry more of luxury. So it was the end, you know, the four or five of them and like, you know, like and then they living on like bare minimum, you know like but I was kind of a chance of life insurance for the contestants. Like I respect them for what they did like not knowing whether end is like you would see them defeated like cuz every time they reached like a checkpoint they would think that's the end and they'll be like, oh Chicago Heights like 20 to 22 miles and yeah, we did some we did some extreme hikes there but some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever shopped we're going up in the snow mountains and down into like these like crazy. Like fields of a great berries and blackberries and green or wow. The zoo water. Yeah. It's very as a very beautiful shot to shoot. I radiate like I really enjoyed that show off. Yeah, and what kind of contestants were they they're famous people or just anyone could have regular just regular people wanting to test themselves, you know, like see if they could do it kind of deal, you know, and what production was this American or British?

He's also another adventure that I've got scheduled in for the podcast and he you know, as you know, I don't research perhaps whole inquiry comes through, you know, and in in the sense of view, but he as much as I know that's one of the things he's also done is very much that sort of high. Yeah young but he turned his life around and I wasn't sure maybe it was he one of these guys that went on, you know, just sort of turned his life around. But yeah. Now this was just asking you going to be no, he's British. Yeah, but I was just curious cuz it's a fan it's fascinating and it's amazing how small the world is always ask. Yeah, especially relating to you what I'm saying? Yeah, totally I go. I mean it's phenomenal rights. I mean here, you know here you were like, you know, just yeah just wage. A guy who's going along in his life, like every other guy, you know, not not or girl not knowing you know what they want to do and you know, you end up doing something like this, which if you look back now how long you think? Yeah. Well it makes sense right know like like honestly, I'm flattered that even like asked me to come do this because it's not like it's that I have low self-esteem. It's just more like I find there's so many other people more interesting than me. But but like then I was thinking about this for a while like since we spoke I'm like, you know, what like I am a good like person like I trained up camera systems like, you know, like these are younger that I was a camera system. So now all my camera systems, you know, ten years younger than me and I beat the shit out of them. Like I I train them up the way I was trained up but like it's kind of like my responsibility to get these kids like, you know, get their act together. Yep. Out there and do something cool. People are lazy getting it out bed. So these kids are kids that are wanting to be camera operators are they is a sort of particular. Okay, so it's not like faith ization that helps people, you know, unfortunately not like when I get a job on Survivor, I hire my team. Yeah, I get to hire my camera system. So like I'm close to be getting that email but like all these people like a year like but my lifestyle is once I got a camera system. I'm going to stick with them doesn't matter if they ship or whatever like I'm going to I'm going to wage figure out how to get this person to be a shooter. So like I've trained up actually yeah see if my camera systems are now shooting on Survivor. The one of training up right now is home during an invariable loud and he's next in line to become a shooter. So like I'm basically I'm not the guy trained up camera sisters nowadays pretty much. So what I mean, what makes fog Someone good like you spoke about earlier. You said that you had that day on Survivor where you went and had a competition right? And you could go firmly I love this question by the way. Hi, cool. Well, so yeah. So what what makes you good, you know at what do? Like, what made you good? Let's talk about that day when you went out and you compete with this other person. Who are they? Who did you compete with that was my really good faith big jar, but now now he's in South Africa drink all the Big commercials and movies and stuff is like one of the biggest city camera operators in South Africa Okay, cool. So Big Joe does that suggest? He's a great guy. He's a victim I can't go but he didn't want to do sorry Yohan stays in I think that's so fun or stays and what's today's well? Yeah, not a big Joe's I'm thinking big Jarvis didn't want to climb, you know nicknames in t yeah. So okay you had this competition with big Joe's so tell me about that day. Like what made you better than him? What made you good and like where was your head space? Well, it's being she's that's a tough question. So this is a creative industry like so what makes you good or what makes you bad. It's kind of like personal opinion. But as far big jar myself competing for the junior Shooters, but we could only we had like three hours of shooting off which we could do on a date. Well, like I said on your day off, you're allowed to Garden shoot for like three hours and like so so we work pretty hard during the week as it is so we bought a reason for days of but like big drug myself, but every day off we both we're not every day. I didn't take a day off work for ya. What he what he ate days or whatever page nonstop real prices going for it. It depends, you know, I sort of good scene where they found mangoes and I started like was a good scene of that and Sometimes you just get lucky, you know what I mean? Like You got you got to create your life, but sometimes you get lucky but like I ended up getting the position of Junior shooter and Jor Jor got it The Following season, but we still like absolute best song. Like it's just it was actually fun competing against my best friend. We were like edging we were kind of edging each other around. Yeah, but you know, I don't like what like what is a good shooter? What makes it what makes a person shooter? Okay. What did you shoot mangoes? I don't understand. It's not the contest some eating mangoes like your glasses on Survivor, like sometimes they just sit there and do nothing, you know something but nothing. But to answer your question, I'm sorry, a little over the place I'm like, I don't know if I'm doing a great job you're doing just answer my questions like tell me your story and it's you you're doing an amazing job market.

Think has been really interesting. The conversation changed from. You know week to week because what something's? We thought we were GonNA talk about her. Going to. It had to completely change, and I think that was also a big learning curve that we had to do our own to adjust and. Really navigate through all these different things going on this year. I know because everything was so personally and needed like such like nurturing for people to you know some people can't understand certain things and being able to break it down to them in a way, too so compassionate, and I thought that was pretty important, too.

"We're trying to do and I think if we communicated that way then not to put a band aid over something or to make it sound pretty, but that is the truth how I see it. I everybody is Thomas Week, where you Kinda. Have our little pro tip in La does things we respectfully disagree on certain things, but the same time we still love each other. I think some protests for this episode. The protests for me I think would be to. Really reimagining yourself I think as individuals don't try to reinvent ourselves, because we self is that you are constantly putting on another facade. To fulfill that moment, but re imagining yourself reimagining some things around you, it allows you to grow a lot more and go farther because. Cells and loving ourselves as something allowed us is hard for us due to really love ourself because we look in the mirror, and we come to ourselves, and we see ourselves in that mirror, and we look at ourselves, and we don't really like everything about ourselves, but at the same time this is who we are, and so loving ourselves important, and I think in these moments in the pandemic. I those one thing that we really figured out. It's like it's okay for Pele to. Do have a moment by herself to love herself. Okay for me is okay for us to love ourselves and love our families, too so loving yourself feel like is important so reimagining what love feels like not reinventing it, because and reimagining love, it allows you to really put dig deep into the psyche of yourself in the psyche of your past traumas to really changed his experiences for the future and I think we look at America's a whole reimagining the ideas reform ation reform as a lot of the conversation. Is that are are happening around us and. Not only in the structural away, but also in a personal way in the flesh way also in a spiritual way. Yeah I like a reimagining, because you don't want to reinvent the wheel, you're going to rematch. What's new in what can come? But with that being said is that I feel that we live for the future, so we're constantly doing what we can now so that it'll affect our future in our. Our changes for what we want later you know what will come later and I think during this pandemic. Is that reimagined like today? Don't wait for tomorrow or for your month you know and love what you have now because we keep striving looking in searching in hunting for something better for something greater for something more, but that's never now. We always have to put that time in between it and we're. We're like well maybe six months all have this degree. Maybe in a year I'll have this house maybe then, but it's like, but why can't you just love and be in the moment of what you have right now and I think if you take the time in appreciate everything that you have at this moment the roof over your head a person in your life. You know your job at the moment. Moment everything might not be exactly what you want. And maybe you do WanNa get to the next level the next step, but don't forget where you have a because right now is still great right now is still special right now is all your hard work and everything that you put forward to get to the moment now and everything will come, but being the now to get to the future where she.

"Wake Up. WAKE UP A. Wake Up, wake up A. I. Say what Got Wake Up. You're listening to two mouthpiece Michael Bennett and Pele Bennett. It's been four months since we have heard of first case. Of Kobe, and sense of pandemic has spread, and we've been on lockdown in our homes, and our cities in our communities away from our family and friends, and now we're four months out as July. And now we're contemplating and thinking about what has changed in our society culturally and also. What hasn't you know what? Those, for like there, such a disconnect between reality and fantasy and I think like people feel like conspiracy is like all these things going on. I want so you don't know what is the virus real, or is it fake and all you know you see people dying you like viruses real, but then you see other people who aren't wearing masks, because they think is not real, so it's like it's a hard thing, and I think that's the thing that we're not really paying attention to American. Is How much empathy we have to have for other fellow human beings by wearing a mash, and doing all the proper things that you see in other countries and I think in America I'm not sure everybody takes a series of some of these other countries where you know I think in the beginning I even was. Not taking it ask your sale more like oh stay healthy. Wash your hands and have a positive spirit, but now after four months I'm like no, like you really have to go out of your way to take proper measurements of how you're interacting with people what you're doing, but but going out of your way where you're seeing someone walking towards you now you're like dodging person like you're really doing stuff that you normally wouldn't do every day, and then you're also still stocking up on food and stocking up. Up on your toilet trees in the beginning I was like a half enough for what you need, but because it's so unknown, the panic on everyone I think is still existing the s so crazy because like. If you rewind in October if somebody sneezed, you say, bless you if they coffee like, are you okay, but now it's like one of those things motherfucker cough or sneeze you looking for the tape and be like we need to put this. In segregation by herself. He is sick or she's sick. It's so crazy because you don't owe, AM I. Not affected so I just feel like in America. We we open up things like it's hard for this country to a capitalist society not to be open. You know what I'm saying, so it's like they're weighing humanity versus the capitalistic, Mesa. De! Cities, in the states are opening knowing that there's an opportunity and more chances of people actually in the virus, but the greed and a need to have these material things need to be I. The need to have those is actually feel like sitting us backwards as American society, as American culture, and you add in the riots, you add in protests you add it enjoys floyd. You have a cocktail. There's ready just to explode because there's so many different variations of people's paying happen once and I think the government. needs to do a better job of controlling are not since of controlling, but really giving people to true on his narrative is like. If we don't have that shoot, narrative, people don't trust, and unfortunately we dylan what the president five that people just don't trust. They don't trust them, so people aren't really like leaving. What's happening or some people are just like this disconnect between the powers-that-be in the governing body actual people that the government actually governs. Yeah, let's say one thing out of these four months that I've really noticed. That is really different amongst everyone at. Within Within governments within city states, countries is value I. Feel like that word value you know. Everybody has their own term on how they value something and like how you value your food. How do you value each other? You know humans your family. Had you value your government, you know. How do you value your mayors? Different things because of all of these bumps in our rose as we go through these four months I feel like the word value keeps coming up and everyone has their own definition and terminology on what how do you value something? How do we value this life like that? Unfortunately, it even has come to that. You know where people are like. Oh, it'll be have that separation. Than how do we value each other and help? That's different. Different how treating each other? How people are you know? Bullying and people are targeting people that had it you know, and then it goes into race people bullying people who are from China in the beginning this year and I think that we keep putting our own value on people on things on issues, and that is if keeping separated also L. knows lucky animalistic the way that we're like how people react in these times a survival. People go into this mode. I must survive in their survival is more important than the next person I think there's a bit of selfishness. I think we live. We breathe a culture of selfishness when we look at the amount of things that are happening around us. We look at Instagram facebook twitter, all these different types of platforms as we build up these identities for ourselves to. Be disconnected from society and have our opinions, but no onto. Ours is the most important, and it doesn't matter what other people think. I think in this situation. We're suffering from now because we're suffering from this idea that I just WanNa. Live my life Yolo Yolo. So, it's like when you think about that. It's like that's a terrible mindset to have when you think about the older generation of people who have lived a whole life, but for some reason we want to be in the pool. We want to be in the club. We want to be in everything that doesn't really matter when it comes to the idea of being into life and I think when we look at our society now. We just suffering from so many. Heart shirts because of those ideologies and is hard for us to move four when we think about the future of America because there's such a broken down connection between the haves, and the have not in this world, but that does take it back into what you said. Survival mode because you think.

"Wake up wake up a wake up. WAKE UP A. I say wake up. Wake up! You're listening. To mouthpiece Michael Bennett and Pele Penny. Finding. What is authentic like that word authentic? It's like. I think kind of disappeared. You know sure sure for a long time now and if you really think about it like what does that word mean, and what does it mean to you as a person and things that you're trying to do in life for yourself for your family for your loved ones I think like re grounding yourself and filling out what is authentic within your being within your work. You know whatever your work is if it's a creative work if it's. Your Job Your career, your passionately, what is authentic to you would just interested, though because people don't know, this is hard to be authentic when you have other people the pin and it's kind of weird, because like I'm like a AFLAC. We're at the stage and life is like if we for like something we don't want to do. We can't go like it's okay to have that power, but sometime I feel like is individuals. We don't want to tell people know and Dan we ended up doing something that does really validate who we truly are like. We really are mentoring and candidates like we were reading the Bible today. It was saying. You talking about like being a stranger right as seeking asking for help and I think a lot of us are looking in the mirror, and we see in a stranger, but we really don't know how to ask for help like we forgot will be like we forgot who we what we do, the music and it's like. I don't know it's just a weird combination when I look in around the world, and I'm Kinda just seeing the reflection like of seeing like. On a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about the value of the NFL like you know, it's like it's just one of those things where you just kind of like looking just like what is the true value of the fan? Experience was really the true value. Like at what point do you do something so much that you become it right right? You become the character that you started to that you in the road that you are in like. Have the character and if you are. GonNa, you're feeling. The pressures of those expectations you know and I feel like when you're starting to feel pressures of expectations. You have to really go back again and figure out who's expectations are those because sometimes you are assuming it's you know someone else's, but really it's your own that you're putting on yourself and those are not achievable. You're not going to reach those because they're made up. Making empty fake expectations that nobody ever was really wanting out of you and so now to go back and really feel like what is it that I want for myself before taking someone else's perceptions on such a profound statement that came from my wife. Yard at first. Mouthpiece, but yeah, it is, it is super is tough. Oh, because what really is who? We are acts, everybody's question. Who are you really? What do you really like? What is your true hobbies? What are the things that you really WanNa do in life like you know what actually makes me think about it, because I know a lot of times for me, personally I'm like you know we have so many thoughts and. And influences in our head from different sources. I think that it is important to talk it out with someone to people, because then those ideas just kind of float around in your head, this kind of stagnant instill and have anything to come out from. It's like it doesn't. It doesn't change right like it might read something. I don't to you about it. My thought in my head could just stay the same, but if If I. Talk With You then we'll think about it I'm like Oh you know what that's a different perspective? That's a different idea about it I, think like sometimes you know coming back to your own being is to journal because we have so many conversations with other people, we have ideas and things that we see through the news social media. TV, movies music. You know sometimes. It's like going back to the beginning and. And being in your own thought, but writing down and just kind of journaling your thoughts on daily just to kind of have that conversation with yourself, not making you sound like a crazy person, but just kind of like sometimes you don't need all the outside when you're trying to get creative zone, you really just yourself in sometimes we want those outsources for people to be like. Hey, like we need inspiration we need. and. It's like you really don't. People are inspired by themselves anymore more basic. You can be inspired. Of course you walk outside Your House. beautiful grassy area. Mike inspired from the clouds like icy that, but sometimes it's like also try interest being in your own self and drilling those thoughts in daily things that you're thinking randomly in kind of go back until like your own brain and know that you are, you can be your own inspiration that can be your on wanted to come out with your new creative. You know whatever that is through your work through your passion so true. I accomplished a lot. People all my listeners in Asia. Accomplish a lot, but there's only one thing that I truly enjoy. Accomplish me, Pele put the bike rack back at a car and put the bikes on there. Correctly. We have been bikes on. We've been tying them wrong and we did it. We also expire, but it was like those simple things amount of even though I did like so many different things at the moment time the bike. Bike around and getting the thing on their also inspire so i. do think you can get inspired by yourself and I think Philly's definitely write about US getting not own prison right because we formed his prison of ourselves in his prison, the being that we used to be imprisoned right now and everything on a shell of us is not really. It's a really big facade and. And I think we have to unshackle ourselves. Unleash our beings on these are chew cells unleash what we truly a passionate about, and not try to be into the group when it was cool to be an outlier again really have your own true free thoughts and free spirited. It's like the people who say are really want to be that way are being ostracised and it's like if. If you, don't follow line with the way that things are supposed to be of your NFL player. You take a neo you do this and people were like Oh my God. You not do what you're supposed to do. If you're doing more than what you're doing more than people like all, you're doing too much. It's like there's no Bisbee you could be you. Be You be.

"Not no? That's a good question honestly I. I don't think Michael's who got bigger. I mean there are some moments where he's jokes are also so there's moment for Michael it'll sound like he is but he's really not I mean all honestly say I think he's been pretty level Throughout this time but I also think naturally that you're just more like a humble person. He's not like he'll boasts. But it's like sometimes in a joking way. And so I think like sometimes people misconstrued that it'd be like Oh my God but he like. He's that person the way jokes that you'll be thinking it but then he'll say it out loud you know so you're like Oh my God. He completely said that. But it's true and it's funny so I don't know I think that I think you've been well-balanced to stay humble plus I'm right thereby him so mom pop. Those is that ever happened to my husband. Cape reminding and I'm not saying this now because you know he's a bitter at the moment but that would that really is true though. No she don't want any she the first wife I've ever heard the any tramps talking to my husband. Like I get that though I get it like if my boyfriend said he slept with a bunch of girls or whatever. I'm like that's good. That means that he was desirable for certain amount of girls. Someone someone wanted to fucking me now. You WanNa make sure that your person is desirable. Never had slept with anybody and that means anybody WANNA sleep with you. Come on I want you guys for coming onto you guys busy and it was a great conversation race we had. This was sell fine definitely busy. I love having those conversations have humor. Do we have like real talk? And I think you guys are very open and I think we all like is as we go through this current vars and we go to these times appearance where we trapped in our home. And everybody's going crazy what it just like. I'm really about to step out the window because I'm just tired of my people are feeling it but as we need to have that conversation. Why do you want to step out the window? What are you not saying? What is making you feel? That was that tear reflecting. So thank you guys for allowing our listeners to push themselves totally this has been S. You so much for having us I everybody is that Tom of the week or you. Kinda you know. Have our little pro tip in. La Does things we respectfully disagree on certain things but the same time we still love each other so today's prototypical today is how to communicate with your children about personal issues and topics that they're dealing with but doing it in a safe comfortable environment speaking to your children and making them feel comfortable to come to you to talk about sex. Talk about shaving. Certain areas. Talk about them wanting to be intimate or having these feelings. I think obviously a lot of people are like. Oh do not talk about that to your parents. I did not grow up in a household where that was safe to talk to my parents about. That just wasn't comfortable. And plus I grew up with so many siblings had three older sisters so I would go to them for certain things and talk to them or you know usually go to a friend so I know definitely for me with our three girls. I WANNA Mak- safe place where they can come to me but also sometimes I feel like you have to kind of nudge it. Because sometimes they don't want to talk to you about it. So you kind of have to nudge it to them and kind of start bringing it up and starting that conversation so they will want to talk about it. To agree aren't the communication is very important. When you have kids posit the is it possible to over communicate but at the same time Cuna Keisha I think is important where kids because you don't want your kids to be in a place where they can't talk to you when they come in. A problem appears and so many people that have taken advantage of because it don't of anybody to communicate where be able to share their true feelings without being judged I think sometimes as a parent is hard not to judge so I think not judging and communicate is very important for your kids to be able to have those hard conversations because as soon as you say something that you don't agree with and you feel that is negative and if soon as you turn it to the parent you turn into the dictator and you're not You know the Buddhist Mark. Who's there to listen and help them choose the inner light in help them choose the right path so deterrence to the judge is just harder for them to really trashy because they know that there's a verdict coming after that so to be able to really have the inner peace and have the conversation with your kids that allows them to trust you on the decisions that they look into make. I think it will make you a connection with them last longer than just their childhood. Because a Lotta times when kids are younger have no choice but to be connected to the parents. But when they're older they choose if they want to be connected parents and if you have open line of communication in the future kids would choose to. WanNa be around you so communicate and that's what I think. Would you think sugar hear people disagreeing what I say to them not disagreeing? I'm just thinking of like reflecting on my own. You know past experience how I might not have felt safe but also thinking forward now to being apparent on sometimes the girls are going through something. Payton's teenager and sometimes she'll say something in off the top in my head before I even speak. I'm like what the hell but then I like trying to compose myself and instead of attacking her feelings or you know sensitivities. I tried I dismore. Ask a why you know. Why are you feeling this way you know? Why do you think this is happening in kind of track? It she get to the root instead of just attacking the end result communicate and be a great listener. The project really is just clear communication through love though. Thank you. That's it that's it that's the end.

"By flora shots. Plan your dream out while you're doing whatever you know. Sansa like start. Making a plan other has plans are important. Not The do you have to stick to it. Like players change all the time like all ship Plan B. Plan C. But like having a plan gives you a direction toward your dream without a plan. Most people don't know where to go. How do I get to my dream and that is the hardest thing if you get in your car. You don't have directions. Damn you get discouraged about going anywhere you wait for you. Wait for the address. You'd like Damn I don't know if I can hear you won't go. You gotTa fuck you pull out a map or some shit and you've got to figure out like I said when you want the direction so why do why don't people try to plan out the direction to their dreams. I think it's I think I should run as you said that. It's like I think a lot of people are scared. The the money part of it is what scares people. It's like well. How do I quit my day job to go after my dreams? If I can't support myself you know if it's not if your dream isn't necessarily GonNa make you big bucks right away you know and a lot of people hold themselves back because they're like well. I still have to support myself financially so I think our telesis of like this can be your side your side Gig but people aren't willing to put in the hours for that. It's like a nine to you gotta come home and work on your dream until three in the morning and get up again at eight o'clock in the morning we're going to do it. You got put the work in because like when I was planning to League. My animation in my company was in London. So that there'll be days. I have to wake up at five to talk to them before I went to the to practice right but most guys wouldn't do that right like so I'm learning. I'm building off seasons where everybody else's travelled out Internet nickelodeon. I'll intern. I'll go cartoon network. I'll go to dreamworks. I go to Pixar go and I'm just learning all these different things job shadow. Somebody just any spaces and I'm learning the lingo. The jerk the jargon I don't know should they be say was going on then also people network wrong. You have to network for net worth you inches network to know people right networking for network. There's a totally different strategic plan if I'm interested in politics got to the BT awards makes no fucking sense for me right. Go to the governor's ball or inauguration or anything in politics does if I go to the presidential debate. I'M GONNA run into people who are interested in the same thing I am which gives me closer to my dreams of possibly me. Somebody that goes along the way you build those communities around your dream directions. People like people really giving it their all going. After it like I was I was leaving Martinez. Office one day in Burbank. He works out of the street from the Disney offices and I drove past Disney. And there's guys out so two guys outside with big signs you know I I was like Oh. Maybe they're just homeless. And then you read the sign sign was like will in turn like and they're like forty you know forty five year old men. It's like putting themselves out there story. Who knows what job they actually have during the day or whatever but like actually being willing to put yourself out there is the hardest part right and discipline the definition my definition of discipline is allow yourself to get what you want The snap snap at the my Angelo. She discipline is one of the highest forms of cell flow..

"Back realising your world doesn't have to be the way it is and we realized your what doesn't have to be the way to ask empowers you to realize that you can change your world but I think it also takes it back to reality because we know we are bookworm. Family and we left reading. Peyton is thirteen so she is definitely getting to the age where she can read more advanced young adult books. And so these stories that I'm you know all now I've changed al-Rida first and then I have a read it just so i WanNa make sure she can comprehend or or how communication and conversation with me but I think it's also where you get into a book which I always say is like a vacation in Japan. It is you get in there but then when you come out you are still in your own reality in so for me as a parent. I think that's so important where she goes into a book but when she comes back out we still have to teacher. What should is happening right now. You know it's like there's so much reality that you can't stay in the book though because it has a bubble and you gotta come out. So how do you deal with both? So here's the issue. Though right this is this is the Beauffret you dealing. What you reality here right? Wherever that reality your circumstances are well all the books and stories that people give kids of color are right back into the reality we can. He got game boys in the hood. You know see you tomorrow right back in and he gets shot. The kid kills bills a time machine and go back in time to stop her brother from getting shot by the cops. So we fed realities and then we read a book about reality. It's hard to get those fantasies fantasies. You need those because we have girls and it's like we have to look for those type of books than those stories and I feel like the books that I at least me is to the older generation because there's so much wisdom in their stories are different from what you're saying now where they're reading it but this is actually happening. You know in real life people right now. You know all the different stories so I like teaching teaching and giving the girls in creating a library for them so we started out with a few years now is literally creating a library for them that represents them so they have a section in the house where all those books are about empowering women of color empowering you know teaching the history of African American people you know taking all the way back to like the route so they can learn empower women of color and and in a in a world that you build like you can show you could build characters were just as powerful as real people in the world can empower you as a kid. You Watch Batman his his whole size. It's called a Batman in fact right so when kids go out and play as themselves. They don't feel as you know rollers. Yeah heroic but when they put a Batman mask on those same kids jump off a jump off something in jump off of right so now you give kids characters that look like they're those kids become more courageous in ways to now. If I'm going to be Harry Potter Harry Potter inspired a such a huge community of people to fight for what they believe in. Make friends those type of things. So I think we star Wars Star. Wars has of those closer. You Have Changed Course from those movie. Change People's lives right like I could call it like how many how many people you don't know who found out that they did. He was a neighbor. Luke I'm your father. Dale we'd be battle. Halter became my grasp cutting grass. We all angry as caretaker governor daytime but at night here. Hey extreme is he. Put the hat on that. He didn't take it off governor white white. Supremacist off yeah. But that takes me back to the question that she asked me earlier about Jackson won. How did I get to the point of the box right just to the answer? I went through a phase called. I called the Damascus phase. Ray So basically there's a period of time where each room are were into. I will have a different master to be around these people. Like I'll put this Martellus put that Mortello and I put this more tillerson. There's so many different. People is a fucking identity crisis so a lot of people have an identity crisis and Alain vigneault because we just have project and we can never be hold because we have to give people certain parts of us. So I started Damascus myself. Every time I met a different version myself so that I could just be the same person all the time and I went through that phase in New York say in Texas you could be a horse but New York. Qb UNICOR like the possibilities are greater. You don't sound like an for me. That's what our always loved New York for that period of time. 'cause that's when we went through that. D- mask Face how do you see Martinez in the next five years growing and Martos? How do you see Sigi in next five years grown are doing are? What do you see her projection? You telling you putting it into the air. What's West the projection? I told him the other night said I would like for him to be in the circles of I liked for him winning an Oscar. He says it doesn't matter. It's it's happening but I would like to see that in the next five years but I even if it's not like winning the Oscar it's to me it's more. I hope for him to be recognized in his industry by his peers. And it's not just like you know the underground person like if you know you know but like I like I. I hope for him to like reach that level where he's like highly respected by his peers in the next five years for him. He's always like that. I don't think that matters to me anymore. It doesn't like for me. It's more about putting out the amazing work. It's not about the the you know getting the gratitude for it but I know that like would mean something to him are grew the other. I think the biggest thing for me in that aspect. Very nice of you to say Tim Burton to be like Yo last book you wrote. Also her one point I thought I wanted to build a billion dollar company right and then I realized that's not what I wanted. You know saying I just WANNA be able to make my art at a high level and be able to live off my art right like on me. I don't want to have thousands of thousand points. I just want to tell the best stories in for me. I realized like deer black boy like as far as writing goes structurally is as beautiful. Like I like the book but hate the project and the reason why I hate the project and I really hate reading a you know especially when I read it several times because for me I want to entertain his. Take them two different worlds black boy. I feel like it's almost like a bridge telling them that they could go to the other world with the same time reading it. It's not fun these kids I WANNA like. Laughter is what I want to hear a response. I want to build these moments where the family goes to movies or reading something together and they laugh together like now where you gotTa have this horror harsh reality conversation this conversation. I WanNa build stuff where you'd like. Oh it's coming out like we gotta go see. We're going to be funny. You know I want to. That's important. It was important. I feel like it's an important body work of my and I love the work but like but the experiences I want to create for kids to have around my work is mostly laughter and fun right like I want. I like literary nonsense. That's basically what I write Java Java literary says but in the next five years I will say that the the biggest thing is to. I think they'd say hardest thing is that she's GonNa build as probably going to be a a network basically where it provides almost like a concierge of coolness right where provis co term concert basically where not only is she liked doing her own cooking shows or whatever but she brings on other cooks stuff that she likes other fascist styles that she likes based like a taste maker platform so people could come get the best of the best of the best type of thing but she also gets the dabble in like this make up but she doesn't have to do all of the the content you know what Hi. You're really good at hair. Let me get higher to come in. High is established of the week. Let's get her to a makeover for girl whoever's member whatever things like that and then you build this network where now as like yelp for corners but with it is a concierge of cool people need right now and if we're talking about like football world you always need that because you never know where to go that actually for just the idea is to get a membership so now you pay a monthly for this information so if you go to Seattle these top style is this is the top if you need like a concierge service of instances wives of the League or whatever right so if you think about that in general that's fifteen hundred people but that's fifteen hundred people every year and I think that's also opportunity so that's like a gift bag for you know if it gets bigger and I was like I don't know on the teams you guys have been on but when we went to the guy. The giants was the only team that literally gave wise. Like oh welcome packet of like this is who to call for dry cleaning this is for landscaping services. Some of the wives have compiled for a hairstylist aligned. So I think the next five years for six she'll be should be not the influence cer- but the person the influencers getting goes to the person that you go to find the best influence right now. Influencers are so watered down right but who were the top ones that really know their shit and just so that way people could go get the best influence and not just any influence people who are pondering on retirement from something are leaving. Something are trying to do something new as a couple. What information would you give them too so just journey out and just doing be free from whatever? Whatever they're doing it could be from wherever job one thing that they want to walk away from. You guys have walked away from something something that you really dedicated twenty years too. I say one is to continue education and when I say continue education education of what you love rice interested in wishaw keep taking classes learning more. About what shops because the more you learn the more you feel you can actually build a business out of it right so I will find what is that you love and put time into it because like once you put enough time into it the you know there is something that you can achieve and then we make that decision. It can't be a monetary You know saying can't be by money right. It's not really about money you got to think about key. What's the price of happiness right like as more important to be happy? 'cause YOU'RE GONNA be more successful as a happy person than you are ever going to be as a miserable motherfucker working for building someone else's dream a lot of people don't water themselves like they don't put time into becoming what they want to become. They picked it they put on. Whosoever is that craft is if you you WANNA one day opened up a flower shop. Will.

"Mom is white and your debt is so grown up so you you grew up an interracial household. How was that growing? Yeah kind of like my dad raised me for the majority of my life. But Yeah but how would they? How did they play on your role or your identity or like your outlook on life? Did it make you see like different size of understanding? Both cultures understand less. How does that play on You? That my my like racial identity has always been like an an area of difficulty. Because I think to me like I definitely had informed like how I grew up informs away that I see myself. I don't feel like I present to the world as a black woman. I don't see I don't I don't think that when other people look at me they see a black woman I in my elaine literally how I look I think the most people think them are tell us has is married to a white woman but like my black friends are mixed friends are like no like I see a black woman but to me that was growing up in Oakland California which is very culturally diverse but like growing up in black neighborhoods with black friends raised by a black father. And here's this very pale skinned little girl. That doesn't quite belong so it was always that sense of leg. I don't quite fit in in that in that arena either like I'm constantly having to prove myself that's how I grew up. I felt like I was constantly having to prove that I was black. I was the president of the Black Student Union and High School. That also reflects now that you have a daughter. Yeah she's looking at like we're joking about it because we're together and she doesn't understand and she's like she's chocolate. She says what it Blake say to you about me. When you're like your daughter asked you. You said that I was mixed and she was like what no he's white because they look at the skin color skin color acted to you. Know what it is. Yeah what I was seeing is that how do you reflect from how you grew up into now? Having a daughter you know like how does that work in the house and has a reflect on your experience for her like how she's going to grow up. Yeah I mean she's at. She's at such a difficult age with race like it's explaining race to her is very confusing right now because like you said they just look at skin color like she doesn't understand like that at a point in history and still quite a bit today like people are judged based on the color that may are and so. She's like no Mommy's peach like word is always like no mommy is black. They like about man color. Just the way that people are race was established by men to identify separate the people separate. But we just. We walked into the world. You don't get mad at Florida's read or Florida's blue yellow. A yellow rose is just as valuable as railroads like is just about the different colors arrangement so now teaching kid about color and then teaching the kid about race race comes with social constructs as the doesn't make sense right because his two people made it up like this is what we're going to do so it doesn't really make sense because it's just kind of like I get dead. Mommy's Pece Daddy's milk chocolate milk on yours chocolate but I see that but then like once you start putting race color and then you start putting race on like if you think about color. Why people are the minority. The majority of the World Brown world is brown rice at idea like the world is why is ridiculous? Right saying and it's just it's just like the whole race day because Jay is is super prow brown black girl. She's she's she's as black as they come as interesting because the way to work and the things that I create my characters or characters of color so for most kids like for her her first thing is like any word I bill. She sees tons of Brown kids so when she watched his show and she doesn't see Brown kids in it. I think she is. She's like Dad. There's no one that looks like me in his show we're watching Hocus pocus. And she was like Oh. I should call grandma Kathy. And should be as she could be a witch which Grammar Kathy and she was like I was like I was like ne-near probably be a better. Which though because she got a lot energy and she's funny. She's like many came via witch. Now's like why not because he's black dead and I was like what do you mean? She's like I've never seen a black witch and then she started reading all she's like. Dc or white. She's not naming on right now. Oh yeah she was right no buffs and the fact that she noticed that. Just think about what. You're saying like jet so smart so she notices that but then there are so many children that don't know that the issue notice it because of the things that create. So what did I do every single week? She woke up to a new black wished. I drew years one other words again. There's black witch about like arch our children before us like raising them in a family that socially conscious and like like you. We're all like act. You guys are all into activism and it's just like our kids have no choice but to celebrate their blackness or their or their Samoan culture or any of that conversation that we're constantly in our family like we're constantly talking about but I celebrate have probably had individually. We still don't know about each other that we had to face race color. Ism and I think it's so important because we're interracial couple people don't ever that when they see us they usually just assume like oh they're black. I'm like all four. Always say that it's like my responsibility. Also even though I'm you know of someone descent is a teach them of Polish culture but it is responsible to me to teach them of African American and African. Culture was really great. That happened yesterday. And this is why representation is an important yesterday when us talking about what you were. You says Moana Rice and Nashi got extreme and under understand exactly your culture. It can be because she watched the movie. So that's why kids being on screens and these different worlds by. Oh I'm just like whomever you don't sound like they're not like oh it's so beautiful. Your people were yeah. They don't themselves in a box. They get an understand of somebody else's coach. I think that's important because I feel like also within our sense of who we are. I think we've we've all been to different places. You've been in different things so you understand other people's culture while building our own kids identity. Be Proud of who they are. We also gave them. Understanding to other people are different. I think that's important apparent. Do because sometimes they go overboard and then they'll become on the left side really fast. It's about balance. It's about being proud of what you are. A big problem with other people are too right like I find. Other people are interested. Their coaches their foods. They're they're rituals those things like that. Those are interesting things you can learn something from those people right like I don't. I've never been to a Shinto shrine but when I'm in Japan I'm every trial I pray to the God of Baldness and he didn't answer my prayers. I'm bald right now. Japan when I look at that like when you travel the world. The the idea is that most people never get outside of their bubble to them. The world is small. I got a friend. Who was making straws right? Like PLASTICS PAPER STRAWS. Try to eliminate stuff in ellison but he was in the Mid West. I say people in the Midwest probably never even touched ocean. Do we care about what's going on in the rain forest fire people here that never seen in rainforest have no idea how to rain affects the world. Whatever they don't care because they see it right but that doesn't mean it's not your responsibility because you you should be educated enough to know what it or whatever. So I- digress. Now I think he does. They don't care about Dafa skin tied up in their six pack cans like they never seen a dolphin ever. They never saw. The beauty of the ocean makes me so I mean that relates back to racism as well as like is they don't like when it's like. Oh you got to do is pick yourself up by the bootstraps. What is white privilege? And it's like but do you guys know history like you guys actually don't care about real black history like do you know the thirteenth amendment like all these people not history. Because it's not right. It's not a an education though like I was like I was reading to the people people feel like they were education. I'M GONNA put that on a shirt education stupid. No because like I was reading this one book in his like a free free at last and his big book of different stories of people who was in the war in a lot of the soldiers who are in the Union. The first thing that they said that they wanted to do was create education. Get the opportunity to have education. I feel like if people understood like what they Esso's went through to get to the point of what the freedoms that they have now. They won't let those things pass by because like to to understand not to be able to re are re be an actual law that you share. You can't read or have this or have that and to have it and not understand the magnitude of what people been through. I think a lot of times African American kids. They don't get to know the history because the schools don't teach you. They'll teach the journey. They only teach the traumas of it. They don't teach the war. I mean the winds in the winds of Wednesday the Wednesday one or the ones that are undeniable wins. Yeah right the undeniable moments that they try to teach that they have to feel like they have to speak about these because otherwise. There's no way you can see bill in the rug but these other things that people don't really get to see on that scale they don't promote those stories those stories but those small stories are big stories in other people's lives. It's funny because then you got people saying like Oh domestication and proclamation like if the patient proclamation missed something to society then we wouldn't have to have their Jim Crow then Jim Crow Bean Jim Crow would admit something and then it's like then there would have been of rice. Cycle Civil Rights. Fighting for civil rights am fighting for freedom is almost two different things. It's like civil rights is like you know something that's us. Human Freedom is just wherever human is born with every her. Yes should be born for free. But that's I think that's an important people knowing the history because what if the people who had that message patient proclamation like yeah we free but we had to go through that stop. I think it's important that if they understand the history didn't they will never stop fighting. Never stop creating as like you like you still creating things because you know that there isn't a voice like that. What have you Ma'am just tired? Man There's no voice I feel a responsibility. I can get tired. I feel like I can't fail to. I feel like in a way I have to be able to tell these stories because not only am. I have to tell the stories that I need to tell right. It's not like a certain story to have like is is where because I have stories that need to be heard because I'm the only one I can take people to the places I could take a world builder. Our Bill Worlds. I'm not storyteller right. I bill world so people to visit and when you can visit world's fictitious world you come.

"Lifestyle going. Well we'll make this next two dollars to replace the. Don't take it out. This is the same person I'd be like this month so we can't do it. Just get it but but it's interesting too 'cause like growing up in seeing the stories that you did and now seeing like deer blackboard boy you brown girl all these different things that are coming out like is it hard because sometimes I feel like it. Nfl is such a a white fan base right so you write stories about do black boy. I feel like sometimes they can resonate with the stories like when we were at the NFL in Miami for a super bowl. They just look so uncomfortable. When you're reading the story at one thing that always catches mind our home until Pele. I was like those lady who was like the story. Be for everybody. You were like no this story's for their for black boys and the story. There's other stories that are for other people but this particular story is for that person. I thought that was a good way of answering the question. Because she said it. Kinda ru but you answered it so Jewish It'd be appointed like. Oh why are you not talking to my kids but whole thing is I look at our conversation and every conversation is not for every single person and I think artists make mistakes when they take they could speak to the entire world at once right so for me. I'm like I want to have this conversation with black boys so dear black boy this is for you. There's no doubt about it so when I had this conversation for them they also the thing is the black boys up to the fourth grade. Like seventy four percent a boys up to the fourth grade are up to grade level if you think about seven percent of the books represent kids of color. It's all people of Color Right. There's more books about animals. Our kids have color. So if you take you take you pull those out in anything about. This won't be mostly grow. Centric books are going to be black boys so if you think about not having black boys reading levels part of his not being able to see yourself in books from young ace. Oh what a book is so Brown right like the book is as Brown as it could possibly be if there was a shade of Brown in the world is in that book Ray so for me like I thought the Question Time I out this book as racist well is Harry Potter. All these other stories that have nothing but why people in those book racist there but once you start having a story whereas just solely focus on people have colored as world where why people don't exist. They gifts gets to a point where they feel like they can't be in that world. They want to be in that world right now. Racism though that I feel like white people get caught up in is the differences. When you're empowering a culture as different than saying my culture is the best in your inferior Like nothing you do is ever going to be good enough right enough. Speaking of the black power is not the same as like white. Supremacy is not the same at all..

"Afternoons on yours. We play right. They belong to someone else so you can never leave work and play. Well you know what? I'm the office today once you let's go to me here and let's have lunch or let's go do whatever. I. Let's go to museum this afternoon for lunch. You'd never get the option for ten years of your life is like doesn't exist so for us as like you get to start date dating again. Yeah right so you kids or a school you drop the work like all outlets have breakfast together right or or let's go walk to the coffee shop for a little bit. Yeah we always. We've always been very close like we prefer to be with each other rather than most people like. We're always together in the house but now it's like we're not like. I didn't think that we would be together even more. And like that's like now he disliked do our like like always together and it makes me think of marriage like to get better. No you don't I was like we're like we're so close and then I'm like damn we. We actually liked to spend all of our time together. Like it's it's hard for us like travelling because we're just so used to being like even with jet just like a unit like the three of us so it's like even when we travel. It's really kinda like hard on us. We're just we just like have our our our things like we just love being together. It's nice it's really cool. It's like with your best friend. You're just really with your best friend but like you were saying a lot of couples like sometimes they grow apart bartels always says like like you'd always joke but it was the truth and it was like a lot of guys don't know their wives or don't like their wives like when you guys are spending so much time playing football you some of these couples don't really really know each other on the deepest level. I thought you were going to come home and be good but now I want you to go back to work. Highest of life like the house of the life l. like the trials and tribulations. That's when that's when the real love commodity worse out that's before the divorce happens things and maybe that's what has all. Maybe that's why we have a stronger relationship because your NFL career was a highs. Nfl career was very rocky says Nelson and other garbage ships closer to the same reason why their relationship had very close because we went through a lot of life together. Yeah so like. Mary don't read experience a lot. Things like start traveling. We stores that say we start traveling together like when we started going to museums. It wasn't like I went to go visit museums. And she's like we had a lot in life. We grew together a lot of times. People grow separate Agai- like this person might get these interests and grow direction. This person goes in this direction. So say you do have like differences. I think what's beautiful about? That is to allowing that person to go in that space. Not keeping them in a box. So if you're looking that it's like okay. Let me nurture that unless you do that. I think that also applies to the kid. But it's all about keeping the box. I for like as an athlete. People try to keep keep the players in the bucks. I feel like your whole time as you've been like making a not a regular box making I boxed into a circle make it into whatever you WANNA do. I tell us that a black box away just for example like when you first America music on Youtube when I came out using you to people get mad got mad at players like why are you doing. Every player has a youtube channel. Everybody has partnered I was the first player athletes do later and I was. One of the first one was onto as we're okay. I was blogging for. Dow's morning news before anybody. Who's writing for anything? You know what I'm saying so like for me. This is what happened was I felt like I focus too much on the box. Sometimes right like I tried to prove that I was everything outside of the box right but the fact that I m athlete and I am a I am athletic. I am creative. I M this. What's makes me special so the most interesting thing about are you could buy a kit any toy but the box because it becomes it could become anything so your box could become anything so once. I realized like I'm in control of my box. No one could put me in my box. I can just transform box to be wherever I wanted to be. And that was a powerful thing and that was like A. How do you there you go to that stage? I think it was to realizing that there is no like a lot of times. You guys we try to separate. I'm a mom a wife. I'm a you know a party girlfriend. But no your mom who likes to part is zero. Single thing is you. You could be sexy and be a mom. Also you say you're a mom. Why do you have a no sorry about the jet heights me better than anyone? Societal structures and constraints. They're put in place. Make people put themselves in boxes so that they can be understood but the be truly understood as to be fully present and who you are all those things encompassed who you are. You're like no fear. Yeah because you have to walk into that knowing that it could mess but walking into your also you like I might fall but I'll keep going and I think that's scary in that part when people are like how do I make this transition or change into something else. Because they don't know how it's going to be perceived from others. A wife like the put wives in boxers too like they guy wife. You're not supposed to do she's not supposed to do that. Especially when your wife till athlete how do you? What are you doing to find your voices individual you during the fire your passions like because there's like a lot of people listen to the show that might be like in a place where they want to figure out. How do they go outside the box and create more like voice? I think for me it's on. It's an ongoing journey. Martellus and I are very opposite in that way. I always think like he has a very clear vision of why he went to what his purpose in life is and maybe he didn't know exactly what needed to be but he needed. He knew he needed to be creative. He needed he needs to make things. I've always been that person's like I like to dabble in this. I like to dabble in that. But it's that fear for me of like what if I fail so for me. It's always hard to like completely dive into something and put everything out there in like people and not be well received or something like that but for me I think in the last especially since retirement what I hear a lot in like feedback to myself like people are like. Wow you really are like very authentically yourself and I will say that like. That's something that having a partner who has always been authentically themselves has like that's influenced me greatly and it allows me to be whoever? I want to be whether that's okay. We're doing the gym like we're going to the gym. I'm inspiring people to go the gym or we WANNA do curly hair stuff where we WANNA chef. We want to do all these things but for me. It is an ongoing process of finding the things that I like and being okay with like I. Maybe that didn't work out quite the way that I planned it but at least like we got we have to try it so you must go to fill your no more. I am no like myself outside the box I have to do. I have to do it for myself. Like a campaign buddy L. So I'm GonNa highlight singing because obviously you know we've been in the family together for a long time so a lot of focus on you know the guys because of what they do but we do a lot and I'm not only saying as like wife's I'm like saying our family. I mean if Sigi I've seen her from the beginning. Starting a family you know before she even had a kid. So I'm like I've seen you also grow as mom as a woman to become you know like this evolve in grow more into like how not a role that I don't think it's like really a role you play like within your family because you were so many heads so you see her like juggle so many hats for her husband per moving for football. You gotTa have a hat for football. You GotTa have for your child you gotTa have yourself. So how do you? You're not talking about how he's going to run for yourself because you have to wear so many hats and I'm saying nothing you guys don't yes talking to you because you wear so many hats. Where do you find a space where you like? You can finally have like your own time. You're meantime like what is that for you. That's just for you. I think I had to create like I definitely fell like like some people. Don't know like Martinez are tell us move to La for me so it was like like yeah like yeah of course it helps his business to be in. Hollywood but it was really because this is where I want it to be. I feel like myself here. I didn't I felt like I was losing myself. Like in the suburbs like. I was living a white suburban lifestyle like Ma elect stay at home moms white suburbia. She's a station wagon. She.

"For Tele Jute things like that. I don't don't think intelligence says morning. Define me find until you're on so is being a animator and being influenced her and learning about the thing that you want to do within your books and stuff as a young black kid. What was your inspiration for? I knew I remember you. Writing Stories are like one of our punishments as a kid a mom used to make stories and shit like that and all kinds of UH. Recycle pediatrician differ shit. Like that and you just always rice stores you always Creighton as a Kid. Like what was your influence on into this moment. Right now were you like a actual animator. Actually put out stuff like well. So it's interesting because my creativity takes place in nineteen ninety six to two thousand and five. So that's the time period I Usually right in the application and I think that's mainly because that's the area where my childhood took place at the time where I was really coming into. My own is a child so the Venice the fantasized version of my childhood. When I visited I right So for me. It's really about growing up when I would watch things or make things. Willy Wonka was the biggest influence only ever in my life. I like what's your biggest influences? Always Been Willie Wonka. And that's because watching Willy Wonka. He may chocolate and everybody was in. The world won't fight for this chocolate. Everybody wanted his chocolate. People were lying by getting tickets. People were fighting everybody. Chocolate everywhere and chocolate changed. People is but I looked at his chocolate is more as magnificent creation that this guy was creating and then when I meet will he walk as is a century out. We're guide a lives in his place as Columbus which is a whole another story about Lupus and are too will have open up as personally sung songs airtime. Someone did some shit wrong in the house. Like yeah I would love to own Lupus like a bunch of people in chocolate but the idea of the chocolate factory and people want to go there and see how he made this and wanted to taste is they made me. WanNa make chocolate and dumais chocolate. Just I had to figure out what my chocolate was. A my chocolate is our books. You know what we're seeking as as as a wife you know sometimes you you supporting your husband as he moves from the NFL to up the nose how's it been watching him transition from the NFL to you. Know he's been crazy stuff the whole time. How do you support how do you keep? How do you keep that going? Honestly I feel like our transition wasn't a transition. It was just natural. It was like the easiest thing ever because it was what he was supposed to be doing. All along He's the only person I've ever met. This says like football with my side job. He was like yeah. Football's my side job. But what I really like to do. Is You know this long list of the never ending resume of all the things that he does but the transition was so easy because he just had never seen him so happy and at peace and actually doing the things that fulfil him in life daily and not have to have the added stress of going to his day job. So it's easy to support it because the happiness in him is so like apparent now like I remember so many days of him going to play football and there is no there is no joy there. There's no joy they're like they're they're days there were but there are more days when it was like a drag or you know something he had to go do. Despite loving the game there was so many politics or injuries things like that. That took away from it but now he just gets to do what he loves. All the time it dis. Oh No I love that. You said it like now because you are already doing as you're playing football transitioning like you said is not a transition so do you think that not are you happier but how does that look now that you guys are out like. How's the relationship got closer you know? Sometimes we only talk about retirement people apart or the first thing they have after.

I'll be in front and you could be second So that that that would make vice president view second so you still get a good job but are you on the shortlist for any vice presidency of being involved in that way or manner. You don't WanNa tell actually don't tell us. Actually I don't want you to give me Michael Doesn't want to lose you right now but if you decided right now who would be somebody that you could get behind our would you do you see yourself being a shortlist for that or would you do it. I don't see myself being on a shortlist. First of all presumptious. Amita think that anybody would want me to be on the ticket with them. I don't know that that would be the case but I I I don't know if you saw this but I We were talking about. You mentioned the the young woman. The girl in Idaho with the air. Fifteen strapped her back Gone before the city council the State Legislature There was a picture of these armed masked white men with weapons of war marching up the steps of the state capital in Kentucky and tweeted that picture out and the the the words that company were wake the fuck up America like look what is happening right now like this is going down in America as we speak. I WANNA feel free to say. Wake the fuck up America when it needs to be said if I if I were drawn to album do what you do with that company in DC doing do that where rap every type of music music needs that right now. There's so much love. Is Music like there's so many live music. And and the way to have music shaping our kids in the weather until no young girls address. What are they telling our young men to do things like that? Positively tiffany of honesty that needs to be back in the music. So I say you drop the label. Gang gets you a couple of rappers ditching studio come out to Hawaii record. Get Your Faith Pele and ask you if I know. You're you've got a million things on your plate but if you could help manage my career the albums that we've got to produce the the BNB ticket that we gotta get ready for and twenty four. No I like you. I hope in in some way I WANNA be able to speak my mind. And and Feel free to do that without worrying about you can. Do I upset the party? Do I upset the president at the top of the ticket? Do I I I just think this is a moment that cries out for truth and honesty in in the most raw in real terms that we can possibly express them in and again. I think that is why I was drawn to your book. And why my son? Who's thirteen years old? I wondered if you want to read a book titled Things That Make White People uncomfortable. And he's a big big sports fan and it's his entire life and I said hey ulysses you know this Guy Michael Bennett. Yeah of course Michael Bennett. Well he wrote this book. I just finished it. You may or may not like it. elite by your your your bed and if you pick it up. Great if not. That's okay too. You know. Two days later he'd finished the book was really into it and and I think you know. Even though he's thirteen years old he also craves discount of truth in an understanding of where we are right now too much has been to safe and to Saccharin and two produced and we haven't gotten at the tough truths underlying some of the problems that we have in America and until we do. We're GONNA keep repeating the same mistakes and we're going to continue to have people like Donald Trump In this country making life even that much harder for for so many millions of our fellow Americans. So yeah this is the time to be honest. And that's what I WANNA do but I want to ask in go back and talk about your wife. Don't WanNa say shot to amy. Because she sounds like an amazing person. She's you'll be on track number three. You're putting your truth out there and being publican how your family also has to engage in that you know what is the role that she plays in your life and your family. And how does she mean to? I wish I wish she could be here and An answer that question too in terms of what she does. So she's very involved in education in El Paso in our in our school systems trying to improve the teachers and the pipeline of teachers coming in working with public schools outside funders and organizations who want to make sure that every kid in El Paso has a great shot at a world class education and so on top of everything that she does for our family very committed in her career to improving the quality of public education. And I'm super proud of what she does there in the community. At home she is. She is part of every decision. I make in my life. I just I don't do it in less Amy Good with it or Very often the idea might originate with amy for example when we were first thinking about running for Senate and we had this conversation about you know. How do we talk about trump with our kids? This was back in two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen. And how do we explain all this stuff to them? And then amy ask the even better question she said well. How are we going to explain ourselves if we fail to meet this challenge and so she really was the one who helped make the decision to run for Senate? She knew that this was something that we could do. Where we might have something offer in and it might very well Make a difference and then also is very often the backbone or the spine of the operation. I'll be tempted to take the easy way out of an issue or not. Take a position on something. She'll she'll call bullshit on that she'll say hey hold on a second You've got to be honest about this stuff and look. I know it's not going to be easy. I know you're GONNA take a lot of gruff for For saying this but but tell people how you really feel about this even if it's if it's not popular her integrity her ethics. Her moral compass is is second to none and I always want to be a better person because of her you know I always want to be worthy of her love and the fact that she chose me and that we get to do this to go. I want her to be proud of me. And I'm super super proud of of her. She means the world to me. I mean I think that's really cool. Though because a lot of times people don't really highlight they wives like that and we'd like to highlight both sides. Both sides of the highlight my wife for her to highlight me. And I just so much positivity to bring something to make to make sure it sounds so beautiful McNary something this commitment but the same time. There's honesty and there's some growth is is you need the support says yeah we call it crap paddlers so. I looked at the loaded. Assembly are not that not that Microwave Pasha real real. Should we cook and Gumbo and you got third row. So it is nice The wife like that manages and it gives your kids away to look at how they treat spouses like you are being the example of that and I think you should put in a hallmark card. That was that was beautiful man like out. We got actually GONNA cut that part out because the rest of the people. I don't know if I can live up to that. So you said the standards right man how you should love you a woman and how you go about your family and I think for me. I know you very well. I heard what you did but when I watched a documentary and at the end and how you embrace your kids I knew I was like. That's a man who loves his family when he came home. Any filter emotions of his family with his family was going through. It wasn't like you were being selfish so I just want to thank you for coming out to the thank. You are really am honored that you all asked me I've loved learning about both of you. Both through the book and the PODCASTS. And how you all make your marriage work and how you make decisions together And how you are you. Keep your family together and stuff's not easy but it's important and it's really good when it works out. Our everybody listened to this. Go vote twenty twenty four BB Benny Battle. Yeah as a matter.

"I gotTa Tell You I still am inspired by Colin Kaepernick by you by Lebron James by by others who have worked really hard to attain a position and status and are seen by by millions by hundreds of millions all over the world and who are willing in some way to compromise that earn position or or to put it on the line in order to stand up for something that they really believe in. That's important not just to them and not just the people who look like them and have had experiences like they've had but are important to all of us in this country and and I really feel that there's nothing more American than doing that than than than willing to put your your career and your status in your position on the line for something that you believe in and there are so many ways to serve. There's so many ways to sacrifice and I'm grateful for all of them. The men and women in uniform right now and I read from Your Book that Your Dad served in the Navy so you come from a family of those who serve The the people who are willing to stand up in their day to day lives and stand up against things that they know might cost them position or status or in some cases their lives or at a minimum their freedom. When someone's willing to do that I can you to call that out and make sure that you give credit where credit is due. It's the only way that I think. This country becomes a better one and has any hope of realizing its potential and its promise that you know as we said in the Declaration of independence we are all created equal. We've never realized that We never truly acted that way in this country. But I'd like to think we've never really given up on trying to achieve that and and the leaders may come in. The halls of Congress may come in military uniform Maybe wearing a football jersey or may be out on the court. They may just be leaders in day to day life in their community. But that's what it's GonNa take to make America better so no. I was very happy to say that on the campaign trail. Although I got to tell you that there were folks on my campaign who are who are asking me. What in the hell are you doing answering that question that way like we? We don't need that fight right now. We're trying to beat Ted Cruz in Texas. Become the first Democrat to win a Senate race since nineteen eighty eight. And you'll need to be taken on controversial positions. I think the the truth is it's actually not that controversial. It's just do. It's an honest thing and it needs to be said. But that's what makes you great. I think there's a lack of what people are calling honesty days. It seems more like a lie in any time you try to show the truth to try to build people up. It's like when a hate starts to come because it's like everybody is so silent defining with somebody speaks. They're super shocked. That somebody would really bring attention to something like that. But as a as a as I said as a black man as an American Human being like I I was like. Oh Yeah. That's the Guy Accuracy am. I think that's why everybody was so drawn to you in democratic grace or just everything grownup Texas. I think that's why we're both from Texas so that also addressed. We spent an and you'll appreciate this. We spent a lot of time in Bryan Texas in college station. Texas and at am not a place where I thought I'd be welcomed a Democrat and a very progressive Democrat at that talking about some of these issues including a criminal justice system. That disproportionately is Seeing black men and women round men and women behind bars for crimes or infractions committed by all people of all races or a healthcare system. That is the least insured in the country and is at the heart of maternal mortality crisis. That is two to three times as deadly for women of color. I wanted to say that because it's true and I wanted to say it everywhere I went and Texas in all two hundred and fifty four counties but to be honest with you when I went to college station Bryan Texas Raynham. I thought this is not going to be Received very well but I was surprised it was And I think in in in all these places in Texas that Democrats have written off or taken for granted or thinker to read or rural or too conservative. I think if you're willing to speak the truth if you're willing to call things out for for what they are and then willing to offer a solution for how we make things better. You might be surprised at the way that people respond to that and And and that's what I found in some of these places in in Texas including When I talked about Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players taking a knee We don't have to be limited by what we think is popular or possible. According to the conventional wisdom we speak our mind. We speak the truth and I really do think that good things will follow so we have to of course dive into the Democratic candidates that are still in the twenty twenty presidential race. Will you enter this? Do you have a favorite? I'm really interested in seeing how these Democratic candidates respond to the issues that are really important to us in Texas. And how they're going to help these down ballot candidates we have a racist gerrymandering in place that has drawn. African American and Latinos out of congressional districts solely based on their race and ethnicity to diminish the likelihood that they ever vote or participate in civic life that with voter. Id Laws With other suppressive tactics have been Alarmingly effective if we get a democratic majority. We start drawing people in and start making progress on things that are important to us like health care and gun violence and criminal justice and immigration so Bernie Sanders was just here in El Paso actually was really grateful that he came to El Paso. We are an afterthought if we're ever thought of at all in this far west Texas County. That is a Mexican American majority community one that saw the mass violence against Mexican Americans in US history. Twenty two killed by a white nationalist racist in August. Armed with an AK forty seven a weapon of war that has no business being in our lives and our streets or our communities. A guy who was not only fueled by hatred but in some ways was directed by president trump who's talked about Mexicans and Mexican immigrants as invaders as subhuman laughs when people talk about shooting them to to stop them. The fact that Bernie Sanders came to El Paso Texas meant meant a lot to me and others in this community. The fact frankly that that Michael Bloomberg came to El Paso Texas mental. I don't want to see if the other candidates are are going to come here and speak to us and you know Michael you talk a lot about this about going to where people are being open to new experiences and the experiences that may not be your own on what those candidates to come here and do this El Paso so I'm very interested of course and and will support the hell out of whoever the nominee is But I really WanNa see what they WANNA do for us here in Texas and I'm hoping in the remaining days we get to see that may and you talk about the gun violence and I just saw somebody. Idaho went to State House in. His granddaughter brought a loaded weapon into there. And I'm just like is a far cry between the right to bear arms and actually safety of our citizens like you said like. There's shouldn't be war. Weapons in our classrooms are kids are having to learn about this gun violence. They feel so unsafe to think that we grew up. Feeling safe like so. I'm glad that you have the courage to bring those issues But how do you convince somebody? Who's a gun as part of their life and and now they're being told that for the be taken away but in a sense you try to get them understand but it's not really about the gun is really about the safety of our citizens. I think you just said it. I'm sorry I shouldn't bail Michael Bennett. Twenty twenty four. Let's do it. I'm in I'm in no. You're absolutely right. That was a chilling photo to see an eleven year old girl with a weapon of war strapped to her back brought in by her father. Grandfather in front of the legislators who will make a decision on this issue to to say that that weapon is not intimidating would be ally and when you see it. Play out across this country in the State House in Kentucky guys in combat camouflage with body armor face masks so that you cannot see their identities wherein AK47's Ar fifteen th these are weapons designed exclusively for the purpose of killing. People are not meant for hunting not meant for self defense. They're supposed to kill as many people as effectively as efficiently as possible on a battlefield to bring that into a State House and try to intimidate lawmakers. Same thing happened in in Virginia to State House there in a red from your book. What it meant to you to see the Charlottesville white nationalist riot those marchers saying Jews. You will not replace Shouting racial epithets and the president saying that there were very fine people on both sides to see in that same state masked gunmen all of them. Almost white men try to intimidate lawmakers that is terrorism by another name. You do not have to kill somebody with that gun to try to terrify them into taking action based on your political beliefs and when you match that with terror that was expressed in murder like in El Paso where a guy came to to kill Mexicans as he said afterwards to police Then you understand what we're up against what I say to that. Lifelong gun owner. You know and and I know from reading your biography. You were raised to hunt into fishing to shoot and a farm. You understand what life is like in a rural community. What I say to you is I don't want to take hunting rifle and WanNa take your your handgun Our Little WanNa take any of your weapons but I do think that an ar fifteen AK47 which is designed for for war. Which can be used to terrify? Terrorize and intimidate. That has no place in civil society or in our in our communities in a country that loses more than one hundred human beings a day more than we see almost any other country on the face of the planet disproportionately Black Latino Men and women boys and girls disproportionate in Texas women who are not protected against domestic abusers. You've got to agree even if you're a gun owner even if you're a republican even if you don't like me even if you hate my guts than what we're doing right now is is not working and you have kids..
