Wall Street Journal Editorial Board Explains Joe Biden's COVID Failures
"First, these statistical numbers, I mean, The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes President Biden may not recall what he said during a 2021 campaign debate last fall, but Americans should, anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America. COVID deaths this year have now surpassed the toll in 2020. Wall Street Journal points out it would shame that mister Biden has done no better than Donald Trump in defeating COVID. Despite the benefit of vaccines better therapies and more clinical experience. The left politicized COVID by holding mister Trump responsible for a disease that was always going to be hard to defeat. Biden said, if the president had done his job, all the people would still be alive. The Wall Street Journal says that was his false as anything mister Trump has ever said. But most journalists and experts agreed with the basic premise, mister Trump had blood on his hands. The world's top medical journals called for mister Trump's defeat. The Wall Street Journal writes about Biden's COVID death milestone. Because of the Trump administration's preparation they say, the U.S. led most of the world in vaccinations. Yeah, mister Biden had no plan to deal with a large numbers of vaccine holdouts other than to deride them. He missed his goal of getting 70% of adults vaccinated by July 4th, but proclaimed victory nonetheless. Biden blamed Republican governors and unvaccinated conservatives. Yet blacks and young people have also shown resistance reluctance to get vaccinated. They don't tend to be Republican, see Nicki Minaj and Kyrie
Vice President Kamala Harris Defends Joe Biden's 'Disgraceful' Africa Travel Ban
"Then another tweet said Trump further diminished the U.S. in the eyes of the world by expanding his travel ban. This new African ban is designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate to the United States. It's a disgrace. And we can not let him succeed. So riddle me this Batman is Biden's presidency and disgrace. Is Biden disgraceful in banning, travel? From South Africa? My gosh. Here's the vice president Kamala Harris defending what Biden used to say was a disgraceful racist, horrible thing that diminishes us in the eyes of the world, and that is to ban travel from other parts of the world. Travel restrictions. We'll take it one step at a time, but as of now, we've done what we believe is necessary. Perfect. Thank you all so much. Yeah, we're back. We're taking the steps we think are necessary.
The Hypocrisy of Joe Biden's African Travel Ban Versus President Trump's Travel Ban
"Just confirmed that everything you think about what we're witnessing with the Biden administration is true. Headline, President Biden mocked for restricting travel from African nations after he attacked Trump for doing the same. This is so ridiculous. This is beyond satire. We're at a point where it's not even satirical anymore. You know the news about this new army Kron variant and South Africa. So what's Biden do? He bans travel from South Africa. Do you remember what he said about president Trump? Who did the same thing? President Trump trying to protect Americans from COVID. This is a tweet from Joe Biden. Trump further diminished the U.S. and the eyes of the world by expanding his travel ban. This new African ban Biden said hell of a difference. In March of 2020, is designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate to the United States. It's a disgrace, and we can not let him succeed. Yeah, that's what Biden said last year and now he's turned around and he's banned, travel from an African nation.
Salvation Army Releases Racism Guide, Telling White Americans They're Racist
"Is right everything they touch. They ruin. And now you must have leftists in the hierarchy of Salvation army, shooting themselves in the foot over. Why would they do this? Why do organizations think this has to be done? I just wish I could understand the thinking the mindset the destructive nature, the impulse to say, hey, white people, apologize. And incidentally, the Salvation army has put out another statement sort of denying this. I've seen the study guide. They can try to spin it. I've read the guide. It does say we recognize that it's a profound profound challenge to sit on the hot seat and listen with an open heart to the herd and anger of the wounded. And incidentally, I don't want to be oblivious to people who are hurt by racism. I just don't think ripping down a statue fixes it. I don't think burning down at McDonald's is the answer. I don't think letting violent felons out under the streets is the solution. Call me crazy. And I don't want to apologize for something I have no control over. I shouldn't apologize. I shouldn't apologize for being white any more than somebody else should apologize for being black or Hispanic. Eurasian. Or whatever you are. Why do they do this?

Kyle Rittenhouse Is Exactly the Kind of Enemy the Left Wants to Create
"If you show up to a rally or you show up to a city burning while the National Guard is not there and the police have been told to stand down and you defend yourself because someone's trying to kill you and that someone trying to kill you is a child rapist? You're gonna get tried for first degree murder in your family has to go into debt to try to defend you, which we're seeing right now with Kyle rittenhouse. And by the way, if this was 1892, and it was the KKK trying to take over a city, and it was a black 17 year old that took a gun to go to the burning city. We would have like a national holiday to that young man. Seriously. Not saying that's what we need for Kyle, not saying we'd like a national holiday, but I'm saying that it would be everyone would say this is the most amazing heroic thing I've ever seen. But instead, let's just be let's just be as blunt and honest about it. Kyle rittenhouse tracks a box of the type of let's say enemy they want to create. And we saw this earlier with what happened with the Nicolas Sandman case. You guys remember that the Covington kids? Remember the Covington kids? Where Nicholas Sandman on the steps of the capitol with that lunatic came up with the drum and started banging it in his head, and his head was his face, and we were told that the young kid was the one that's provoking and saying racist things, total lie. Totally exonerated one his lawsuits. But no, the thing that Kyle rittenhouse did wrong is that he fit the perfect type of archetype where Joe Biden came out and said that Kyle rittenhouse is a white supremacist. Said that on Twitter, hope he gets sued for that one day in civil court. There is no evidence of that. But instead, here is the essence of it is that there was a picture, the same thing that happened on the southern border when you had border patrol agents on horseback, and they said, oh, they're using whips to go after migrants, total lie, it's called a bridle or saddle. You ever ride a horse before New York Times weirdo, right? And of course not. Never even west of the Mississippi River, let alone ever mounted a horse, right? No, it's a whip. No, but all they have is the narrative. So Kyle rittenhouse, they had the picture they wanted. AR-15, mouth wide open, young, white, Trump loving, a green shirt and hat backwards, looking like he's kind of playing the insurrectionist. Boom. Put him in

Waukesha Suspect Darrell Brooks Shared Pro-Hitler and Violent Anti-White Posts
"We have to close the loop on the walka Shaw story. Isn't it a tragic set of circumstances where we're only allowed to talk about or care about a tragedy if the color of the skin of the attacker is something that the regime actually wants? So the attacker and walker Shaw, who has now killed 6 people a young boy died last evening. So it's went from 5 to 6. Ran over 40 more people. A black terrorist by the name of Darryl Brooks he is a pro Hitler anti semitic black supremacist terrorist. It's been wiped clean from the activist media. You've got a CNN dot com. No mention at all whatsoever. Nope. Nothing. Instead, if you, if you looked at any of the headlines that happened, they're not even saying that this is a terrorist attack. No, they just call it a car crash. They say what happened in Waukesha Wisconsin was just the car crash. It was like someone that got off on the wrong exit. Play cut 56. Bank worker. We were also hearing from the uncle of one of the 18 children hurt in the crash on Sunday. David begnaud reports on how one 11 year old girl is doing. The crash on Sunday. This was an attentional attack. But because it was a black assailant who's a child sex trafficker and pedophile, it doesn't fit the
Dine-and-Dashers Abduct, Assault Waitress Who Tried to Stop Them, NJ Police Say
"I was just reading about something that happened in turnerville, New Jersey, Washington township. And this is going to get me in trouble for saying this. Because we need to have a serious conversation about race in America. When Joe Biden talks about the thugs at the at the capitol on January 6th, what about all the violence we're seeing in the streets of America today? Chicago. How about Saturday at the nifty 50s, in turnerville, New Jersey? Police are searching for the suspects caught on surveillance video who are believed to be involved in the attack. Now, there's no mention of the suspect's race. No mention of the waitress is race. Here's what happened. There was a table of 5 customers who were attempting to skip out on their $70 bill at this diner. And the waitress sees it. And she goes out into the parking lot to try to confront the 5 suspects. They abducted the 20 year old, they dragged her into the car and they beat her. Mercilessly. The vehicle headed north on route 42, made a U turn was headed north south toward Monroe township, and then they pushed her out of the vehicle. Somehow she was in killed. She was beaten badly. Because she's a hardworking young woman trying to make a living waiting tables. Now, I'm reading this article, and I'm wondering, why is there no descriptive descriptor of the suspects? Well, we know the answer to that. The media never identifies black suspects anymore as being black suspects. And yeah, these suspects are black. And she's white. Now, I don't know that bad people are bad people. Criminals are criminals. But we do see a dish proportionate percentage of crime being committed in the streets of America by black Americans.
Every Symbol of American Patriotism Is Under Attack
"Was reading an article this morning online from The New York Times entitled redesigning America's flag. What if we redesigned the American flag? Why not? And so a lot of woke people came up with different designs for the American flag 6 different takes. On old glory. They want to redesign the American flag. It suggests this article suggests, and I need to apologize to you because the other day there was a conversation about the the him lift every voice and sing. As an appropriate pregame anthem if you will, it's often referred to as the black national anthem. It's a beautiful Sean. And I told you that I didn't have that big a deal with it. And a lot of people were offended and I was ready for that. I figured you might be. I just felt like it wasn't that big a deal because it wasn't replacing the national anthem. It was going to be played or it is being played before the national anthem. But there is only one national anthem. And when I read about idiocy like redesigning the American flag I'm reminded that every symbol of patriotism every act of expressing our love of country. Everything that we believe in America as Americans is under attack. Then there should be no wiggle room. At sporting events, either. There should only be one Nash anthem.

Former Officer Brandon Tatum Describes the Driving Force Behind the War on Police
"We obviously see a war on police and it's going in different in every community. What do you think is the main driving force behind that? Because it's not even that popular in the black community to get rid of police. Well, you know, I think that it's political. A lot of people like to promote something that make you feel good to get you emotionally charged, and it has no real positive effect. There is no rational reason to defund police in any circumstance. If anything, they want to fund the police for the things that they complain about. You want to get them better training. You want to make sure they're equipped, you want to be able to hire more police officers who are qualified, who represent the community. So I think it's our political, man. I think that when black people get killed by police, there's an emotional charge, and there's an emotional financial benefit. You get people charged up, people make a lot of money that's invested in race hustle. And I think they use that to get leverage to votes and but they don't have a solid real perspective.

"The courtauld gallery, the museum attached to the court old institute, one of the great international centers for the study of art history, is reopening to the public after a three year closure. One of those remarkable institutions built for a belief that enjoying an understanding art improves society, the courtauld is best known for the founding impressionist and post impressionist collection of the textile magnate Samuel courtauld and his wife Elizabeth. But it was later joined by other collections that added major works by cranach, Botticelli, Rubens, and host of others. They much loved in London, the old courtauld Gary didn't really show art in the best way. But now, after a beautiful and sensitive renovation by withered Watson man architects, its reopening, with spaces repurposed and opened up, new rooms created a new commission from the painter cecily Brown, and a series of displays which bring fresh light to its magnificent collection. I went to the gallery to take a tour with its director Ernst vegan fem clear burgund. Ernst, we're in the earliest part of the collection here. And this is in a way a kind of problematic part of the collection because it used to be kind of hidden away, right? That's right. I mean, it's a wonderful part of the collection. And that was the challenge really to bring it back to prominence. It used to be displayed in a single gallery on the ground floor. And what tended to happen was that people walked straight past it, drawn by the great impressionists on the second floor. And so what we wanted to do was really to create a situation where people could really for the first time enjoy an encounter these pictures in a very sort of high quality setting. This is really one of the most important collections of early netherlandish and early Italian paintings in the UK. Indeed. And I'm going to focus on this amazing work attributed to Robert compound. It's a triptych. It's an altarpiece. Tell us about it. One of my very favorite pictures in the collection full stop painted by Robert compound. We believe who was a contemporary of January van Eyck, worked in tournai. It's an absolutely extraordinary sort of miraculous survival across more than 500 years. It's relatively small scale, probably used for private devotion in the home rather than on a church altar. In the center panel, we see Christ a lowered into the tomb after his crucifixion on the right hand side is his resurrection with a group of very exotic leaves dressed as soldiers sleeping at his feet as he rises out of the tomb and an angel sitting on their lid of the tomb that has moved aside. And on the left hand side is the donor who sits next to his little white dog rather touchingly. At the head of a path that winds through the landscape in which we also see the three crosses of the crucifixion. He remains unidentified rather intriguingly. And coming out of his mouth is a white scroll on which one imagines originally there were the first words of a prayer a prayer which is sort of enabling him to visualize this extraordinary scene..

And so i would say Check out some of the writing on reparations certainly sandy dirty myself and others Throughout the country working on this and But there are many ways many different models that we could take but we should not stop because there's debate about should it be Cribs or should it be a native american or or different groups of black people. Yes there should be different programs for different people and we leave it there unresolved but the conversation continues. It will certainly continue here.

"Doesn't mean that that's exactly right. So there's like burdens and benefits that comes from systemic racism and many white americans in regardless of your lineage benefited from systemic racism and as evidenced by the ten to one wealth gap It's it's also evidence in homeownership rates. And even you see the the effects of all of this in-depth rates because the cove it that that systemic racism provided a layer of protection that black americans on average do not have or did not get in the same way tanya in east new york. You're on wnyc with dr andre perry from the brookings institution. Hi tanya thank you for calling. Hi and thank you for having me. Let dr perry my thing with the systematic systematic racism. Do they really wanna give us reputations. Everybody knows about black wall street. We know how you take things out sis. Racism take things out of the africa black america and co communities. And things like that. My thing is that we do not want to intrude on anything with white people. Have we want our own fin. We weren't going in neighborhoods of your kept the resources and our neighborhoods like having your we need to go to your school. It was fair all we want is for to be treated like equal people who helped build this country just like the white americans who took the country from the native american. All we want is reparations. It's not hard black people. Have you know we black when we go on for these loans so hard for reparation. We black accounts to get red line for houses. I get a higher interest rates and all this stuff like that. And then my house devalue because you guys we cut systematic. Racism says this area is not east. New york is my good now because people say is not good but soon as other coaches come in the neighborhood then it's going to get the resources and get developed and then it'd be a good neighborhood right. My thing is that we went on able to be good when we're in there because we won't come to yours if you leave us when we supposed to have we will not bother you come to other races other other areas. And that's why reparations five you want say what's interesting we you know. I do a lot of research on housing. And it's and it's fascinating to see home. Values increase white poop. People move in the community and which robs so when when white people aren't there. You're not seeing the kind of infrastructure. You're not seeing the kind of funding and that schools you're not seeing a everything from the streetlights being fixed to the potholes include and and and we don't need white savers..

"The federal government paying for the reparations for the descendants of the enslaved of americans and so we would not be paying for members of the diaspora who were descendants of the enslaved in jamaica or the caribbean or in africa It would really be a american descendants and we could achieve that number way. Actually we have a lot of records physical records but then you have now Genetic testing and lots of other things. We can work that but for things like housing. We redlining what it wasn't that long ago we actually know who lived in these areas. That were red. Line and so a municipalities would be responsive states and municipalities ended. Federal government will be responsible for those claims and so It somewhat confusing but really not. I mean throughout history. We've given reparations to groups including nine eleven victims for injuries caused by things that were out of their control. We've seen asian americans who were in. Turn receive reparations. We've seen native americans receive reparation. Of course internationally. We've seen jews and other groups receive reparation. There is practice in doing this. This is not coming out of the blue. So what i think people get caught up on. You'll hear often hear people. Say i didn't because i didn't own slaves. Why am i paying. No you're not paying the federal government paying just like there's lots of services i don't use That the federal government pays for because just this past year. What's interesting is that. After two weeks of being socially distance you you've had businesses demanding the federal government repair for asking them to shut down their business. Now imagine what. It's like to be socially distance for generations. What kind of repair would you need. And so this idea that people get hung up on reparations. I just don't buy it. I think that people believe in reparations. Most americans believe in reparations. They just don't believe in reparations for black people and then the questions come because when it comes to americans and cova or nine eleven victims or other incidents which say hey that that's the right thing to to have some former reparations but when it comes to black people people say oh i didn't own any slaves. I didn't do and it doesn't hold up. Well the distinction. I think white people need to look at a speak personally. I didn't own any slaves. My answers ancestors didn't own any slaves. My four grandparents all were immigrants in the twentieth century. so they certainly didn't own any slaves but does that mean that. I didn't benefit from systemic racism..

"Fifty percent of federal contracts that the executive branch controls up from ten percent which the white house estimates would mean a hundred billion dollars in investments over the next five years reparations or not reparations meaningful dot meaningful. I think that biden had the conceptualization of equity that is one of that defined as fairness under the law and in many the actions in the fact sheet that he The vitamin station. Put out this week. we're really Address fairness under the law. Things that government should have been doing in the first place Making sure that peculiar cure mint or contracting services would black brown and agent businesses are going through the federal government making sure that there is investment in in black businesses. And so i think it's important to remove the drags of racism. I'm from the federal government. And and that's what i think This latest attempt is doing one that i'm very that's a personal issue of mine in the fact sheet. They're going to look at appraisal. So a lot of my research has shown that homes and black neighborhoods are underpriced by twenty three percent about forty eight thousand dollars per home cumulatively that about one hundred and fifty six billion in lost equity in black neighborhoods simply because of the concentration of black people in the area and so that's one hundred and fifty six billion and i just want to put this into context one hundred and fifty-six billion would have finance more than four million black owned businesses based on the average amount. Black people use the startup their firms. It would have paid for more than eight million four year. College degrees public degrees. Replace the pipes in flint michigan. Three thousand times over it would have covered all the hurricane katrina damaged. It's it's double the annual economic burden of the opioid crisis. That's just one hundred and fifty-six billion can you imagine if rep Some type of reparations package that will cover the racial wealth gap which it would require around Up anywhere between five to twelve trillion dollars be Different estimates and so a lot could be done but but the point is that i do think removing racism from federal policy encouraging state and local leaders to do the same. We'll help but even if you make everything consistent under the law you won't necessarily close the racial wealth gap and that requires some form of stimulus so before we go to calls in our lines are full and tanya in east new york see you online one. You'll be the first caller who would qualify as you imagine it. Because i think the concept of reparations is overwhelming too many people who don't know how to figure out who would qualify. How much is owed. How could they be fairly paid. How much of a difference could they make. So this is one of those As do like descendants of enslaved people in this country who could demonstrate that lineage somehow personally or also other members of the african diaspora like immigrant family members from the caribbean or africa itself or only people below a certain wealth threshold today. How could that question of eligibility be handled. Because i think to be frank. A lot of white people get hung up on this. And there's different claims for different injury so for slavery in for the enslaved in america. You're talking about the national..

You quote a pro reparations critic of the evanston plan these twenty five thousand dollar grants to black homeowners to buy maintain mortgages You quote a pro reparations critic of that plan Evanston alderman cecily fleming. Who called it merely a housing plan dressed up as reparations. What's the distinction. She was trying to make and is it important. There is a distinction that a lot of people really do believe that reparations is an act of congress that acknowledges a or a sense for a comprehensive approach to redress the injuries caused and so it would be eventually. Hr forty that the reparation studied they went caught with the plan that plan what essentially be enacted by congress and then you would see essentially true probably trillions of dollars to progress of reparations problems at is nothing really comes from washington go to washington and so for me. It's reparations thing. Reparations won't come from washington that will go to we. We are starting to see communities. Local leaders acknowledged what the and by the way. The federal government wasn't the only entity to cause injury to black people in the housing market. Housing is a product that confronts federal state and local entities and all of those things essentially Polluted to harm black people and each has a responsibility to pay back so it is small. I'm no question is not enough like i. but it is reparations. Reparation plain and civil is repairing the damage us by an entity in this case evanston evanston had the role to play dr perry.

"Talked on wednesday show after the commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the tulsa race massacre about the controversy. That broke out there last week. Over reparations for survivors and descendants of survivors of the massacre so much wealth was destroyed. When the so-called black wall street neighborhood in tulsa was targeted and destroyed that it has affected the prospect of specific people who can be identified as individuals and tulsa and have never been made whole now beyonce's entering the history for more public awareness like was done this week beyond ceremony and a lot of media conversation. What does tulsa. What does america. Oh those families in actual dollars and cents. We talked about that in terms of tulsa on wednesday. now we'll take it on nationally. Now here's part of the problem. Conventional approaches to closing the racial wealth gap have only worked to a limited degree. Here's president president biden acknowledging an example of that in his speech in tulsa on monday shockingly the percentage of black american home ownership is lower today in america then when the fair housing act was passed more than fifty years ago day. That's wrong were committed to change that. So the president's proposing a new program to help black americans buy homes. It's one of several measures. He announced in his tulsa speech intended to close the racial wealth. Gap we'll talk about some of the others with our guest. Andre perry from the brookings institution in just a minute but equity in a home. Think about it is just one example of the gaping wealth disparities. That simply shouldn't exist any more or certainly shouldn't be as big as they are if the civil rights laws and affirmative action and other measures instituted way. Back in the nineteen sixties. Were working well enough right by measures. I've seen widely cited. The average white family in the us owns ten times. The wealth of the average black family not ten percentage points more ten times. Think about that. If you're white think about that if you're anyone else the biden measures we should say also mostly conventional. The president avoided the word reparations in that tulsa speech but there are examples of reparations around the country that are worth talking about in march the city of evanston illinois passed a small one twenty five thousand dollars toward mortgages and other home ownership for black residents also in march the virginia legislature.

"For having me. Fry. it's a pleasure to be here so we brought you on to help us understand how to stay safe. This coming month as we go to public places with lots of people including polling locations rallies or marches for some people. What's the first step towards staying safe in these circumstances. Especially if you are women of color. I would say first and foremost obviously were still in the midst of a pandemic so we definitely want to make sure we're exercising. All of our very vigilant precautions to reduce the spread of covid nineteen. Having said that. I think we have to invest in our own individual personal safety that requires sometimes education right. Because we don't always know what that looks like and i do the same thing. We go along with our daily routine and sometimes we forget to stop and take pause. I need to be more mindful of the ps and qs that are necessary just for personal safety practices. So a couple of things when you're going somewhere if you haven't been there before do your research find out where you're going to before you get there. Just educate yourself. Let me take a few minutes to see where i'm going to see. Is there a gas station around me. My tank full. So if i need to be on the road for a longer period of time i'm not stranded depending upon the event you're going to whether it is voting whether it is going out to meet somebody at an event is based on your comfort level. If you know. I am not someone that is comfortable. Once the sun goes down then you find out the hours of operation for what you're trying to do. It's going to a polling place recognize. There may be line so that may extend the our somewhat plan ahead. Take someone with you if they're available and also tell people where you're going. I don't always do that. I have left the state. And i have forgotten to make those notifications and i have had my loved ones. They really is that what we're doing now. You know it takes nothing at all to let people know where you're going and also in an emergency. Where's my exit. People may laugh at me but a lot of times. I do look at that when i'm out at a restaurant or out at unfamiliar space. They may be illuminated or they may not be so how you enter a space be the best and most available opportunity if you need to leave there in an emergency. You can't always prevent something but what you can do is practice tools that put yourself in the best possible opportunity to succeed in. Whatever you're being faced with. Yeah you're talking. About exits reminded me of the days when i used to go out to the club and those days they were over before it happened but keep an honest it. It was over for me a long time ago. And let's just be real. You know we are entering an election season where some people fear that there might be violent said protests were outside of protest and there have been tragic circumstances like the one in kenosha at a black lives matter protests back in august. But if you do perceive yourself to be in a place where people are armed. How do you then process things number one time and distance what i tell people. Your job is not to engage physically with anyone unless you have no other alternative. It is literally life or death so if you are somewhere where it is too large. It just has too many people. You're just feeling like not even that you've seen anything. I'm just not feeling comfortable. Remove yourself take yourself out of the situation because what you don't want to do is feel like i'm uncomfortable here. I should remove myself. I don't and then a situation becomes more involved and now it becomes that much more difficult for you to extract yourself if you see something that is of concern to you than please. Report it to your local public safety authority for that area. But the goal for you as your personal safety is to remove yourself from that situation at every opportunity in less literally it is life and death and then that's a completely separate conversation that was holly drains.

Because that's exactly what corona virus thinks, I'm going to go. To beat the virus. You gotta think like the virus.

Today's headlines Welcome to the daily social distancing show. From Trevor's couch in New York City to your couch somewhere in the world. This is the daily social distancing show with Trevor Noah. Here's A. Let's kick things off with immigration. It's the reason food has flavor. And how the president's met sixty six percents of his wives. When Donald, trump rife office, his platform was that he opposed illegal immigration, and I want people to come into the country, but I wanted to come in legally. That's right big guy. But after taking office, trump began restricting legal immigration to and now thanks to corona. It looks like he's taking it all the way tonight. A new round of immigration restrictions from the White House President Trump has signed an executive order blocking entry into the United States for at least four types of visas including the H. One B. Visa high skilled workers. They're going to press. Pause on. Visas for foreign workers coming into the United, states because of the high unemployment rate in the United States say senior administration officials saying they want to see an America first economic recovery that starts with Americans. That's right folks for the time. Being immigration into America is basically shut down. which is not just GonNa hurt new immigrants. It's going to hurt a lot of Americans, too. Because as a major study concluded long run, economic growth in America would be considerably dimmed without the contributions of high skilled immigrants I mean. Let's be honest. If you actually want to save American jobs then you should build a wall to stop robots. But good luck with that. Because if you've seen movies, you know that robots are unstoppable killing sheets. And as an emigrant, personally I'm torn by the story you know because on the one hand I think this is yet another example of this administration xenophobia. On the other hand. It gives me the perfect excuse to not let my African cousin come crush on my couch. Yes, sorry sees where you can't come. Stay with me from said you can't come in how, but trevor I'm just at tourist. This doesn't affect me but I just I. Don't WanNa. Take any chances you know I. Don't WanNa I. DON'T WANNA. Make trump angry. What what did you know? What is he not anger now? Moving onto technology news when the coronavirus pandemic began, a lot of Americans hoped that they'd be a way to use smart devices to automatically alert people if they had been in contact with anyone who tested positive for the virus. You know it would be the ultimate fusion of high. Tech and public health. Well we're not getting that. But we are getting this apple watches will soon be able to tell a user if they're washing their hands long enough to prevent the spread of cove, nineteen and other illnesses, apple says in the newest update, and I'll let you know how long you're washing your hands at all. Set a countdown for twenty seconds, which is how long the CDC recommends, we should all wash our hands The Watch will vibrate when the twenty seconds are complete, the watch will use motion to detect handwashing and then use audio to confirm it by listening for running water or the wishing of soap just when I thought apples best days behind them. They come up with this because I am sick and tired of singing. Happy Birthday every time I wash my hands mainly because it makes me hungry for birthday cake, so then I eat a birthday cake icing on my hands, which means I gotta go wash my hands again which makes me want more birthday cake, and now I have diabetes. I will say one thing that concerns me is how the Apple Watch is supposed to detect that you're washing your hands. And I mean it's gonNA use hand washing motions and squishing sounds. Seems like a lot of teenage boys are going to get interrupted all day long. Also Evil Villains are going to hate this new Apple Watch, and that's how we finally destroyed the world.

It just wasn't laid out in such racial overtones that we have now and that's because it was a problem hiding in plain sight according to Bernie Sanders approach a rising tide lifts all boats. But that doesn't do you any good if your boat has a hole in it and there's another expression the black community that that comes to mind and that is when white America gets a cold. African Americans get pneumonia. And that is the disparity that we're seeing right now in real time going forward. We don't even know if we're going to have a presidential election and certainly the campaign has been truncated as you mentioned so. It's unclear how much this is going to rise to the top. Certainly a lot of white voters is foremost on their minds is going to be more of an issue for African Americans going forward and even if you look no further than the election Wisconsin. That happened on Tuesday where people were being asked to risk their lives to go vote either go vote and risk in corona virus or stay home and have your vote not counted. It's clear where the directions are lying on the Republican side and where the direction needs to go on the democratic side. The other problem I see. And it's something that you talk about your article in that you know there's been no national response to this in the United States. These fifty states sometimes act like fifty different countries in your article. You talked about the states. That have turned their back on the affordable. Care Act That's of course the healthcare laws that were put in place under the previous president. President Obama. these not even expanded Medicaid. Which is the state run or at least the federally? Federal Government runs Health Care Service. I mean. What is the reality of that for people living in these communities that we've been talking about this is where the chickens of Medicare expansion are coming home to roost? Mississippi again was among them and their community. Healthcare system is in tatters their counties entire jurisdictions with no doctors their entire jurisdictions where hospitals have shutdown were clinics are struggling so this is the bad wind. That's blowing off that decision. It's easy to discount medical care in good times and when you're not the person who needs to go see a doctor but if your health is on the line and you can't get to see a doctor. You're going to have to trace that decision. Back to your governor's decision to not accept. Federal money to broaden healthcare access. So it's really unfortunate but a lot of experts predicted that this day would come that there would be a catastrophe there'd be a pandemic and the decision to not accept federal. Money will cost people their lives as you say that day has now arrived Do you expect things to change? It's difficult to say. I mean not the least of which is because a lot of this is systemic but very much more of it is political. You have a chain of states. Ironically and tragically where thirteen percent of the African American population lives. Were Talking Texas Louisiana Alabama Mississippi Georgia Northern Florida North Carolina and South Carolina. Those are a chain of Republican led states that refused to take an affordable care. Act AS AN option. It's where a large number of African Americans live. It's also where a large number poor whites lift but for some reason it had been really difficult to mobilize and get people to reject the political leadership that would reject something like obamacare. So you have a big picture. Which is that there is a crying need for some kind of coordinated response and on top of that once. The pandemic is over some kind of national structure for health care and the small picture response. Which is you have very many states that have been Republican. They've been red states for a long time and is very difficult. Because of structures and different laws to overturn that power structure so nothing will happen on the large level until the smaller level understands that. This is what needs to happen. Do you know if these kinds of disparities exist in other countries. It's hard to say. I don't think they do mostly because this is just simply a theory. A lot of countries are more homogeneous both culturally and politically in terms of their population. You look at a country like South Korea. Who was were very much on the spot in intesting for these diseases. They were able to get out in front of it quite a bit quite quickly because they understand having gone through the avian flu now you could also factor in some place like Iran. Which would seem to meet that criteria. But they had an awful response. But you don't necessarily see the disparity in healthier because a lot of countries in the United States. A lot of western countries have government subsidies or government run healthcare and that tends to tamp down a lot of disparities. Why isn't this a big issue in the whole power in Congress Joseph and we have people there like Jim Clyburn We have people like John Lewis We have an Andrea Cossio Cortes or the squad as they known those four Congress people. Why isn't this why they making an issue of this? They are making less Yokosuka. Cortez in fact was very much on the Bernie Sanders Bandwagon. As far as nationalized healthcare was concerned. The problem that you identified as all those members that you talked about who were fairly progressive. Who see the big picture bear in the house which is proportionate to representation in other words in the house? You have a lot more minorities? You have a lot more. People representing those kinds of interest because you're representing broader section of the country in the Senate however that's where a lot of these healthcare bills these movements to go fund healthcare. That's where they go to die because you have two senators for every state and that means a small population state like Rhode Island against the same matter. Representation as a large population state like California scattered in between. You have the red states that I was talking about two members for each one of those states even though their populations are somewhat smaller and less concentrated than larger states so that creates imbalanced that kills a lot of these bills because you have Republicans in charge in the Senate and you have Democrats who are in the majority in the House. They can advance a progressive bill that the Republicans will either refuse to pass or not take up at all and furthermore if the Democrats somehow ended up in power in the Senate. There still is enough Republican representation for he filibuster so there's kind of unequal balance of power and that's a lot of the reason. Why not many of these proposals have gotten off the ground? And to what? Extent all these inequalities being driven by the fact that the country's main system for healthcare is a private for profit system is somewhat argue that that's the only reason why these disparities occur because there is no incentive for them not to occur now after having said that a lot of healthcare companies are seeing it in their best interest to promote broad health for everybody but it is not in their financial interest to hand over control to the federal government. That was one of the reasons why obamacare was reasonably successful with the private sector is that they still got to have control. They still got to exist in the marketplace. It seems like they would not exist. A lot of people are suggesting that they would not exist or should not exist if we have universal healthcare. So you say if this has to change it has to change the local level. How will that take place? The big picture is that has been made much harder by different laws and red states that curb or curtail voting registration and voter participation in the name of preventing fraud so when Republicans had the majority and a lot of these states there were very good and very efficient about changing districts about changing voting laws. So that's one hurdle the second hurdle is organization in that you have a lot of people despair interest and a lot of people who don't necessarily agree they're not gonna go and lockstep like the Republican Party might so organization is key organization will have to happen in order to get some of these laws or return and once those laws over overturn or justed and voting is expanded. Then you might see more real legitimate substantial change justice. Thanks so much for joining us. Yeah my pleasure I've been talking to. Joseph P Williams. He's a senior editor at.

"black american" Discussed on The Heat
"And there's another expression the black community that is when white America gets a cold. African Americans get pneumonia. And that is the disparity that we're seeing right now in real time. You've got layer upon layer upon layer of contributing factors those layers. They're falling away and they're exposing the very real structural bias. That's built in to healthcare in the United States the cupboard nineteen pandemic has exposed many inequities in US healthcare not the least of which is racial according to data released in the last week an estimated seventy percent of reported covered nineteen deaths in Louisiana and Chicago among African Americans who only count for about thirty percent of the population. Each area in New York City still a hot zone for the outbreak. The death rate among Hispanics and African Americans is round twice that of its white citizens as the United States continues to struggle against the deadly virus. What are the factors leading to these? Disturbing numbers are they. Biologic Cultural Economic. And what does government and society as a whole need to do to protect the lives of all its citizens during the crisis. Hello I'm on. Welcome to the heat. Podcast with us to talk about the racial health disparities in the United States is Joseph p Williams. He's a senior editor at. Us News and World Report and writes for the healthiest communities section. His April seventh article focuses on our black people are disproportionately getting and dying from covered nineteen. He joins US via skype. Just welcome to the PODCAST. Hi It's nice to be here. Thank you looking at these racial disparities. In the United States healthcare system they existed long before covered nineteen. What are some of the chronic factors in African American communities that contribute to these infection? Numbers that we see. Well I mean how much time do you have? I mean there are a host of factors not the least of which As you mentioned health disparities there are a lot of disproportionate chronic illnesses. That are found in African American communities as far harassed whites. And we're talking about diabetes. Were talking about High blood pressure hypertension cancer a a host of illnesses that tend to surface in african-americans more than whites. And on top of that you have socio economic factors not the least of which being employment African Americans tend to have jobs that don't necessarily grant medical leave There's a lot of people who work in public facing jobs. Think retail think restaurants think bus drivers think transit a number of African Americans who have jobs that don't allow to work from home because the forementioned factors they have to be present in order to get the job and you have to be on the job in order to get a paycheck because many of these jobs don't necessarily care what the medical leave. So that's layered on top of already existing health issues and on top of that is an issue that not a lot of people talk about which is how the medical community. How the medical industry sometimes discriminates implicitly against African Americans. There's been study after. Study that talk about how doctors don't necessarily take symptoms as seriously from African Americans as from whites. How pain management is different between white doctors and black patients? How African Americans are afraid? Sometimes or anxious about the treatment that they'll get from a white doctors so you've got layer upon layer upon layer of contributing factors. And what we have here. Is those layers. They're falling away exposing the very real structural bias. That's built in to healthcare in the United States so the reported infections among African Americans and other minorities huge compared to that of the white population. But that's just in what we know right now reported cases If we look at the actual rate could it be much higher because testing is not being? Optimal testing has been far from optimal for everyone. The United States still doesn't know exactly what extent the virus is taking. Hold here in this country because we don't have enough testing kissed. We have a very serious problem in. Not Knowing how many African Americans are falling victim to this disease and how many have died because many states aren't keeping track of that data categorized by race and in order to figure out what's going on. We need to get a broad picture in that. Broad picture only comes through information for some reason to. Cdc has been very very reluctant to categorized by race. Several states same thing New York only recently released data categorized by raise Washington. Dc African American mayor here has kind of swept aside the issue by saying all death matter which is not really the point. The point is you have a disproportionate number of people who are dying and we need to figure out why you can't define the problem or begin to address it until you know how large and how substantial about problem is and that's where it comes into play and why so important. Clinton Joseph We look at the response right now. And we see these numbers. Seventy percent in many cases of people being infected are African American The response right now has not changed anywhere has it? It has not one of significant factors here is that the government has been very very slow footed and responding to this crisis. The government writ large. We haven't even talked about some of the states that have not issued shelter in place orders. Some of the states like Missouri like Alabama Mississippi State with heavy concentrations of African Americans. It was shocking this morning when I saw headlines out of Saint Louis Missouri where the entirety of the cove in nineteen patients the cover nineteen fatalities were African American. So you've got a disproportionate and uneven response on the federal level where the US government did not issue broad guidelines for states to follow. You have individual states making up what they're doing on an ad hoc basis. You have a lack of data collection which eliminates one factor that we could use to kind of examine where the problem is and what the scope of it is and you've got a lack of testing everywhere which is another factor in figuring out how big this problem is who is spreading the problem and how to get a handle on it so we can contain the vitality rate and bring this problem to heal. Your article focused on African Americans but Do you see a similar sort of situation among poor whites low income white seminar wondering how much of this has to do with economic loss. Economics is a third layer on top of all the other layers. We talk about and among White Americans. It's serious and Appalachia in the coal countries of West Virginia. The difference there is. You don't have that layer of implicit bias in the medical system. You do however have problems with transportation in getting to and from the doctor not too long ago. I was down in Mississippi Doing some reporting there on health and they're federally qualified. Healthcare clinics are threadbare right now. You have several rural hospitals that have closed you have clinics. That are overstretched. Can't get federal aid and can't get the federal medicines that they need and these are where a large proportion of African Americans and whites are living so economics is a significant factor on this can't be discounted but the racial factor and distrust that African Americans feel in the healthcare system is something that whites would not necessarily succumb to wouldn't necessarily be a factor in driving up those rates in recent years. There's been a lot of focus racial bias in the healthcare system and intern. There's been a general mistrust About healthcare among minority communities. Can you explain that? Certainly back in nineteen forties the most obvious. Example is the Tuskegee experiment. That's where the government allowed African American men to contract syphilis and it led to a whole generation of people being mistrustful of the medical system It was an experiment in real time. Then you have. The Henrietta lacks protocol where African American woman who was dying of cervical cancer. In the nineteen fifties unknowingly had her cells harvested and replicated in a lab for research and development of drugs and treatments for cervical cancer cells. That are still in use today. I might add couple that with formerly segregated hospital wards with hospitals that would not treat black people with an African American might show up with an emergency. Mike turned away. So it's been almost built in the medical systems. Dna that this legacy has not yet been concrete. We addressed and hasn't yet been examined closely. So you have that ugly past and no one has really responded or tried to address it a real substantive manner just if if we look at the election that's coming up in November if there is an election it'll take place at that time Healthcare has been one of the major issues that have been talked about so far. Are you surprised that this is not a big issue? In the kind of healthcare that African Americans can get access to it has talked about but it's also talked about in broad strokes on during the early parts of the Democratic presidential primary..
