His name is Daryl Davis and he's a black man who is convinced over two hundred Klu Klux Klan members to give up their robes by boldly and bravely walking in deep into their lives deep into the heart of the Ku Klux Klan, becoming friends with them and showing them his sheer humanity. Today. We're GONNA hear Darrell Story and learn how it is that he threw his empathy compassion insight in bravery has been able to really embrace a methodology that allows people from opposite sides to come together learn from another become friends heal and grow welcome Daryl. Pleasure. To be here with you. Thank you for having me. It is such a pleasure. You're such an extraordinary human being sorry to embarrass you. I am so excited to be able to share your story and your insights today. My pleasure and I hope you'll listeners will enjoy it. Thank you. Why don't you begin by telling us the back story to how and why you are able to penetrate the clan? Okay. I'm aged fifty, two currently and as a child, my parents were in the US foreign service. So I spent a lot of my formative years starting at the age of three. And on through elementary school traveling abroad living in various foreign countries, you go to a country for two years and you come back home here to the states, and then you're reassigned to another country. So back and forth back and forth during my formative years while overseas my classes in elementary school and things like that were filled with kids from all over the world. Anybody who had an embassy in those countries all of their children went to the same school. So my classmates were Nigeria Italian Russian Japanese French you name it they had an embassy there I was in school with their kids and to me that was the norm that was my first exposure to school. and. So when I would come back home at the end of the two year assignment, I would either be in all black schools. Black and white schools meaning the still segregated schools or the newly integrated ones like. Well I left. CHICAGO. Shortly after I was born but we will come back and we would be like in Washington DC or be in Massachusetts different places for a short time before being reassigned every other two years. So I was back I know I was for part of Second Grade I was back for a fourth grade. I was back in sixth grade and I was back here in eighth grade when I would come back the schools were either all black or black and white meeting still segregated. Or newly integrated, and there was not the amount of diversity in my classroom that I had overseas. So in one case, I was in fourth grade nine, hundred, sixty, eight, I was ten years old and I was one of two black children in the entire school myself in fourth grade and a little black girl in second grade. So consequently, all of my friends were white and many of my male friends were members of the local, Cub Scout Group and they invited me to join which I did. And during a March we had from Lexington Concord to commemorate the ride of a Paul Revere. Suddenly I was being pelted with soda pop bottles and cans and Rawson just debris from the street by just a small group of the white spectators on the sidewalk not everybody most people were cheering us in waving and all that kind of thing. But there were about maybe five people off to my right I remember there being a couple of kids or half a year or two older than myself and a couple of adults who are throwing ends, and when I first began getting hit and looked over and saw this my first thought was oh, those people over there don't like the scouts. That's how naive I was because I had never been to. Before and it wasn't until my scout leaders came rushing over and these were white people, my den mother, my cub leader, my troop master, and they huddled over me with their bodies and escorted me out of the danger. And I realized I was the only person being targeted because nobody else was getting this special protection and I, asked him, I, said, why am I being hit why they're doing this? I didn't do anything and all they would do this kind of shush me and rushing along telling me everything would be okay. Just keep moving. and. So they never answered the question. At the end of the day when I returned home my mother and father who would not at the parade. were, fixing, cleaning the UP, putting bandaids on me and ask me how do I fall down and get scraped up I told him I didn't fall down into the mud happened. And this was the first time in my life that I heard the word racism they explained what racism was to me. And my opinion old brain could not process this definition. It made no sense to me whatsoever I'd been around white people from all over the world at this point and none of them whether they were my fellow Americans my French friends, my Swedish friends, my Australian friends, none of them treated me like this. So my parents were making this up because people don't do things like that. And they assured me that not all white people do this but there is an element of some they do and I just cannot wrap my head around it. So I didn't believe them well about almost two months later. That same year nineteen, Sixty, eight. On April the fourth Martin Luther King was assassinated. And every major city in this country burned to the ground. All in the name of this new word I had learned call racism.

Reform issues. We have state's attorney I-I've brave boy from Maryland in Kentucky State representative. Avocado. Scott in true fashion I we have to start with having you tell us what you're you into politics and we'll start with you state's attorney. Well, that's a great question. Actually I, had no intentions in getting into politics really it was my father who want to work on a campaign. He knows sometimes you have the your parents even as adults. That's. Asked. Me I was going to be a lawyer told him down and. Then, he told me I think I like you to work on his campaign I. Think you need to get politically as like now they're not. WanNa do that.

I love how Howard alums Y'all always get an issue it can do no. Just regular conversation. How are you today? Oh I went to Howard. Thank you. Scott. Tell us whether you into politics. Definitely, you know state's attorney brave boy our fathers I mean you know it's their fault. So. I was born in. My Dad gave me my name Attica I'm named after the prison in upstate New York born a few months after the uprisings there in. So I didn't have a choice Ashanti really didn't in. So early on I got involved in a right out of college classmates run for city also in Knoxville Tennessee because I went away to ABC you is well, it's our on his campaign and then my full time job was at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and director was a county commissioner who became the first woman mayor of Maciel Tennessee and I came back home and I was involved with organized Labor at jobs with justice in ended up having. To me that I needed to run for office in. So because my friends mostly black and Brown women encouraged me to run for office. That's how I. Got Involved I love it in Y'all Attica is my emerge sister she went through emerged Kentucky and I remember the first time. I. Got to email her for something and I was so excited because I finally get to work with Atacan. Something is your pie vaccine my email she said, hey, queen and I almost died unlike y'all Attica call me queen because that's the way I, feel about her so you are just so fabulous and I wanNA start with having. US. Talk about retailers case because I think there's so much here particularly with you wrap Scott you just had an op Ed in the Washington Post after the verdict you are out protesting with your daughter named Ashanti another reason why Atacan I are meant to be best friends and you were arrested in. You've been dealing with the aftermath of that. You've sponsored Brianna Law for Kentucky. You're the only black woman currently in the Kentucky State House. So let's let's dissect this case in state's attorney boy I. Know You have a lot to add is the fact that there were no knock warrants how they handle just paperwork body cameras the grand jury I know that something that has really piece Pete People's interests about this grand jury in Oh what does this attorney general deal? So Rep Scott First let's talk about your op-ed why you felt you had to write it in a cave really personal place you said, this is personal to me. Sean in and I'm on this podcast with Queens. Come on State Attorney Ray boy This is power in so. Yes I happy that Opportunity Washington Post invited me to write a piece just from the perspective whatever that was on things going on here in Louisville Kentucky, and so that's exactly what I did I poured my heart into it as a mother of two black children. Masan is the same age as Taylor Madonna's nineteen. She wanted to be an emt in them. Brianna Taylor was murdered and she said to me Ma that didn't protect her from police violence I'm not sure this. So this is really pulling on us in shanty the people relieving leading the Front Lines here in Louisville for justice for Taylor are mostly women is so we're feeling this heavily. So yes, we've back to now to grandeur WANNA speak out. So that says to me that the Attorney General for Kentucky was so inept that in such a failure that you have rand jurors who want the right to speak out to say, he did not give us all of the options in front of us. There was no one there to speak for Briana Taylor in that this whole process was a sham that's where we all right now that says something about the continued. Kushner justice for Taylor in that's why we won't give up and that's why this movement is sustained

"Money. Barry talking about her adoption of two Children from Haiti. When Jesse and I were engaged. We met another couple who had adopted in this instance It was a couple of it adopted a child with special needs, And then we also met. Another couple had adopted a few Children internationally, and we decided at that point, while we were engaged that at some point in the future. We wanted to do that ourselves on guess we had imagined initially that we would have whatever biological kids that we had decided. TTO have and then adopt at the end, But after we had our first daughter, Emma We thought. Well, why wait? Okay, well, that does not seem like an unsympathetic, terrible person to me, which is what Democrats would prefer to paint her as they're also prefer to paint her as a racist. It makes it kind of difficult and she's obviously not a racist. So here is a CB talking about the George Floyd video and watching it with her two black Children. I was there on my 17 year old daughter, Vivian, who's adopted from Haiti. All of this was erupting. It was very difficult for her way wept together. In my room, and then it was also difficult for my daughter, Juliet, whose 10 I had to try to explain some of this to them. I mean, my Children to this point in their lives had had the benefit of growing up in a cocoon where they have not yet experienced. Hatred or violence on DH for Vivian. You know, I understand that there would be a risk to her brother or the son. She might have one day of that kind of brutality. Has been an ongoing conversation. It's a difficult one for us like it is for Americans all over the country, and the other problem for them is it turns out that Amy Barrett does represent a lot of viewpoints from the middle of the country. She lives a lifestyle that many in the middle of the country can identify. The people on the coast sometimes have trouble identifying

"Of course running so high across the country today after no officers were charged directly related to the killing of Brianna Taylor took testers hit the streets after the news broke the grand jury indicted a former police officer on three counts of wanton endangerment for firing into neighboring apartments and the other officers were charged and Louisville, Kentucky where Brianna was shot the protests took a violent turn to police officers were shot and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. A lot to unpack here. How do you feel about all of this? Both of you? The saddest part about all of it is that I am not shocked that this happened. I'm in shock that I'm not shocked and whenever you look at the footage from the night before or two days or four and they're boarding up downtown and they're putting road blockades before the verdict even came in something that was honestly supposed to be stay hush-hush between jurors and a judge. You just know what to expect. You know, my people understand what to expect and that's the saddest part. Yeah, and what's really sad to me is that, you know people on the internet and Instagram often go to this thing where they say. Oh, well, you know, this person was a bad person. We shouldn't be making this person a hero this twenty-six-year-old woman was a front line worker who was doing the most legal thing that an American Canyon. She was sleeping and getting ready for work and people barged into her home and shot her and there's Justice for the wall of her neighbor before there's Justice for her. So you're telling black Americans and black children that your life is less valuable than a plywood wall. Yeah, that's what the issue is. And I know we have to go to break and we're going to be back cuz I know we have a lot more to talk about so you guys join us. We're going to keep this conversation going. Welcome back to daily pop as we mentioned before the break. No officers were charged directly related to the killing of Brianna Taylor protesters hit the streets across the country celebrities like George Clooney Oprah Winfrey and Alicia Keys are all speaking out Kentucky's attorney general warned people not to be influenced by celebrities and social media influencers off. So he says don't understand the case and their Community but George Clooney who's a Kentucky native wrote an open letter saying he is quote ashamed of this decision off, you know, you and I all three of us have had such open conversations about this. What are you guys think when you see something like this after six months of trying to get jobs or somebody? Yeah. It's obviously not served. The whole thing is outrageous. It's outrageous. It's insane and the contrary to how you felt. I'm still shocked and maybe that's my whiteness wage. That I'm still shocked that this didn't Justice wasn't served here. I really thought it was going to be and I saw that it was not gonna happen and you know, and I've been following the case. It's just shocking to me that It ever happened. Honestly, I have to say that there's no justice served. I I kind of have to second what what Justin said, I'm not shocked at all and to put it pretty blatantly and off early. If this was me there would have been Justice served if I was if I was shot sleeping in my bed. All three officers would be their licenses would have been revoked. They would have never been able to be police officers. Again. They have City wage had to pay my family a tremendous amount of money. Like we are not treated equally and yesterday, I mean, I just didn't I we spoke a lot about this before we started the show this morning and we kind of got into a little bit of sort of the racial Justice is yesterday with stassi and everything and I said this to you before the fact that stassi Schroeder has had more of a negative impact to her life off. Okay and has lost every stream of income because she made some ignorant horrific comments and I'm sure she's ashamed of and the police officers who killed and shot somebody while she wage Sleep in her own residence that she pays rent for okay walk free with not a single problem in site can still continue to make money can still connect to pursue the job but they've trained for it is effing bananas. But this is way this world works. This is why people are calling for police reform and I'm going to let you guys found something the person who brushes my hair in the morning for two seconds every day had to go through 1600 out 1600 hours of training before he could touch a follicle on my head, right and police officers go through less. Yeah the end of the day I want to urge everybody. I know November 3rd is coming up and yeah, you guys should get to the polls. But also when your local channels, and your District elections come up and your state elections come up, I want you to Google the people who are running for those offices and I want you to look at what they said or didn't say wage. About what happened to Brianna Taylor McClain are George Lloyd Wright? Those people stay quiet throughout those whole things your answer is deafening. Yeah and did not want those people presiding over and making decisions about your life. That's a question that you have to ask yourself because that woman was twenty-six years old that could have been your daughter and that could have been your thoughts
"black children" Discussed on The Slowdown
"I'm writing this episode at home while the Voice of my son screams no no. In defiance of some reasonable demand, his father has made. No he won't wash his hands no he won't pick up his toys. No He's not a toddler. He's a child exhausted from shelter in place and social, distancing a child sensing the stress and worry filling the atmosphere during a time of national unrest. He's also just himself naturally defiant like his brother and his sister kids who don't fear authority the way kids did in my day kids who know how to test and sometimes overwhelm their parents authority. Sometimes I think with envy of the way my mom used to be able to tame me with just a glance. But I know that this time my children are living in is different from the time of my childhood. The world is different and maybe kids born into this time twenty-first-century kids require grit and defiance in order to prevail. There is not a day in my life during which I have not looked at my black children and worried. There is not a day in my life when I have not made actual prayers on their behalf simple prayers for their safety simple prayers for their survival. Today's poem is more than a prayer for black children. It is a conjuration meant to fill them with magic power and original fire. For Black Children at the end of the world and beginning. By.

How Does Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes/Brown Exercise Work?
"The past fifty, two years teacher and diversity trainer Jane Elliott has been stirring up trouble on the subject of racism. It can still be uncomfortable squirm in your seat stare at your shoes uncomfortable when she subject someone to the very same exercise she I unleashed on third graders more than half a century ago designed to expose racist thinking. Something, her method can get downright mean but again, the subject is racism, it should be troubling. Elliott came to prominence when the day after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior in nineteen, sixty, eight, sheep herself a white woman took her classroom of all white third graders in. Riceville Iowa and decided to teach them what it was like to face discrimination. She separated the kids into two groups those with Brown eyes and those with blue and proceeded to proclaim the. Brown. Is these superior group she allowed the group extra privileges more time recess seats at the front of the room they were told they were cleaner smarter more talented. How children reacted to this newfound pecking order was startling. The Brown eyed group immediately began to wield their dominance. The blue is almost immediately slipped into the role of subordinates. Anger flared disputes popped up. After switching roles a few days later, which gave both sides of the classroom taste of being in the lesser group the exercise ended. Many parents complained after reading about what had happened in Elliott's classroom through student essays printed in the local paper. A month or so later, Johnny Carson invited Elliott to appear on his late night talk show she became a national story. Many praised efforts at her students is but not everybody a two, thousand five storied Sonian magazine reported hundreds, viewers, wrote letters, saying Elliott's work appalled them how dare you try this cruel experiment out on white children? One said black children grow up accustomed to such behavior but white children, there's no way they could possibly understand it. It's cruel to white children and will cause them great psychological damage. Elliott spoke with us for the article that this episode is based on from her home in Iowa. She said, you think that's traumatizing try living that way for a lifetime. Elliott taught for years before she decided to take her anti-racism lesson out of the classroom and Corporate America. She's also led the exercise for the US Department of Education and other governmental groups. She's appeared before numerous church and school assemblies she was on. Oprah Winfrey's TV show several times in June of twenty twenty. She appeared on the tonight show starring Jimmy Fallon. She often faces uncomfortable and sometimes angry reactions but her goal as it has been for the past fifty two years is education. She says, it's the best weapon against racism. But good education about racism and race is hard to find. Elliott said, that's because the educators believe the same thing that they were taught and they were taught the same thing I was, which is that there are three or four different races and you can tell what a man's intelligence is by the color of his skin or the shape of his head. You can't lead people out of ignorance if you're still teaching the Columbus discovered America and we came here to civilize these savages. Will need to teach the three RS of rights respect responsibility if teachers would respect the rights of those students to learn the truth and be held responsible for seeing that they present them with the truth we could kill racism in two generations is not a doubt in my mind that could be done. Elliott at eighty seven years. Old has seen. America, grapple with racism all her life. She's marked major mile posts in the struggle over the past fifty years or so the civil rights movement and the assassination of doctor king in the sixties, the race riots in Miami's Liberty City in nineteen eighty and in Los. Angeles after the Rodney King beating in nineteen ninety, two, the protests in Ferguson. Missouri and twenty fourteen after the killing of Michael Brown and in Baltimore Maryland in two thousand fifteen after that of Freddie Gray and in Charleston south. Carolina. That same year after a church massacre. There are many others. But the problem she has been relentlessly attacking Elliott says, goes far beyond the occasional race-based. Clara. For people of Color in the United States facing racism is an everyday fight every minute of every day. Elliot said. It's only been going on with me for fifty two years. I know black women who have been doing this for eighty nine years and their mothers did and their grandmothers dead and their great is dead and their daughters and their granddaughters and their great granddaughters are going to have to do. It must be get off our polyunsaturated fatty acids and do something about this. I get paid to talk about it. They aren't even allowed to talk about it. One of the biggest hurdles in educating people about racism in the United States Elliott says is that most everyone knows it exists and knows that it's harmful but few are motivated to change it. She stood in front of. and asked who among the white people in the room would want to switch places with a black person no one ever volunteers. She cautions that recognizing the problem is only the first step but Elliott is nothing if not persistent, she says, she'll continue to educate for the next fifty years. She'll push her mantra of one race the science behind the simple words it's clear. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute your genome, the bodies blueprint that contains all of your DNA is ninety, nine point nine percent the same as every human around you. And she says, she will urge people to get out and vote November no hope of electing leaders who will attack racism as she has had on.

Students for Life activists arrested for defacing Black Lives Matter mural
"Joining us right now, Kristen Hawkins, who is president of students for life. Of America and Kristin to ofyour activists were arrested this past weekend. Right here in Washington. D C. Good morning. Why were they arrested? Good morning. Thanks for having me today. Yeah, we What? Out Saturday. It was national pro life generation sidewalks. So we had students across the country going to Planned Parenthood. Another abortion, silly, praying counsel women. Our team went out there to paint the street to say black, pre born lives matter. We had written the mayor sensor there had painted the streets of the seed black lives matter and allow the group of asked for this. Add on her paintings to say deep on the police, and she allowed him to do that, with how the formal on to do with permanently we had written, the mayor asked her to allow us the same light as she allowed the other activists. We have spoken with them done on that perm it the police called us NASA's issues. Temporary paint, which we complied with. We've got out there for him on Saturday and had six squad cars waiting for threatening the rest. If you are To attempt to put anything on the street. So being activists we have a backup plan it sidewalk chalk with us. We do this all the time. One of our team members Warner, who actually counted upon the pregnancy there every Saturday and sidewalk chalk every single Saturday. Began to sidewalk chalk, black reborn lives matter in front of the planned Parenthood on the sidewalk. Not on the street. Ah, one with one eye open university, Erica Catelyn, and the police arrested them for simply sidewalk, chalking and I want to make sure I understand this correctly. You did ask for a Permit. It sounds like it was granted you then here to what they told you to do, which is used temporary paint, and it sounds based on you applying for that permit that the police knew in advance when you were going to be there, And when you plan to paint this is that how they knew you were going to be there and with it already predetermined. Do you think by the police that they plan to arrest you? If you did anything to the sidewalk, including writing black black lives matter, even if it was done in shock. Umm Yeah, we had written their advance of getting the permit telling her, you know, we we know you have opened the streets up now to public expression. You can't discriminate based on you know what messages painted in the streets. We would like you to extend us the same rights and we gave her deadline and we said we're going to be out there Saturday. All his first and father planned parent heart. If you do not respond, we will take that as acceptance that you know what we're doing. And in fact, her office the mayor's office, I contacted D C special events office who then contacted our team. We got a permit to assemble because you have to have a permit. We had to have a committee. Cirio assemble. 50 people are under wearing masks, social distancing. We've got that permit. The police officers called us asked us to please use temporary paint, which we complied with. But that's how they knew where we could be out there on and we got pretty loud and clear the mayor's answers when she had six Claude cars leading for us, and when we asked the police officers on the scene You know who they were Reporting to who? Their boss wise thie officer in charge directly responded the mayor. Amazing. Amazing, So they just used your attempts to be good citizens as in as a road map to find you and then to eventually arrest your activists in all of this, Kristen, you know, One thing that really sticks out to me is the disparate treatment that your group has received, as when it comes to free expression in the district. So you mentioned it before. But it bears repeating right next to the mural that Miria ll Bowser authorized, which was defunded mystery, which was black Lives matter. She's put it right in front of the White House in giant letters, activist Black lives matter. Activists came in and added, defund the police of their own accord. They they did that without a permit. They just put it right next to the black lives matter, and they put it in permanent paint on the ground immediately in front of the White House. Rather than punish those people. Miriam Bastard gave them the OK after it was over. Those words are still painted on the ground right now in front of the White House and have been for the last month or two. Meanwhile, you're activists used shock on the sidewalk and were arrested. It's starting to sound like you have grounds for a lawsuit. Are you going to file one? Absolutely. This is clear viewpoint discrimination. Our team has been flooded with requests for legal aid groups have been coming in saying We will help you sue the city because this is a slam dunk. Constitutional First Amendment case, and we believe it is so we we have our own in house legal counsel that we work with. We were hiring criminal defense attorneys for morning Erica the two individuals who were arrested for sidewalk talking, and then we're also bringing on a team of lawyers who will be handling our First Amendment federal lawsuit against the city and the mayor. And Chris and I also want to ask about the message that you were sending out the message that was chalked, which is Moon black. Pre boy born lives matter. How has that message been received by people when you point out the fact that so many black Children are aborted in our country that I mean that's what's so sad. If you think about this case, while Warner and Erica are being arrested and being processed and book to Metro police Planned Parenthood on Saturday across the nation ended alive of 360 black Children. That is what they dio every single day for out of five Planned Parenthood locations are in walking distance from minority dense population. The abortion rate for black women is five times higher than white women. It is very clear that not only does planned Parenthood and now their own employees are admitting that Planned Parenthood has a racist past with their founder, Margaret Sanger, who was a genesis to believe that birth control and sterilization was a solution to a limiting what people she called human leads, but they also have a racist. Present and it needs to be addressed right now. This is an important conversation happening within our nation, and we want to add to that conversation would say absolutely black lives matter. The one you say black lives matter. We also mean lives that had not only been born, but lives are in the wounds are freeborn minds their lives that are about to be born, you know, or Children that are about to be born. You've got Kanye West in recent days talking about this is well, he tweeted just a couple days ago. Over 22,500,000 black babies have been aborted over the past 50 years. I'm not sure of his numbers are right, but he definitely is getting to a real issue on DH. He also tweeted I cried at the thought of a boarding my firstborn and everyone was so concerned about me. I'm concerned for the world that feels you shouldn't cry about this subject. What's your reaction to seeing Kanye West to come along and say, Yeah, this is a real issue. Yeah. I mean, I think this is a very raw and emotional issue for so many Americans. I think it is so sad to see. So I watched, you know, Campaign speech in South Carolina. He broke down, crying, talking about how he himself was almost aborted by his mother on then how this discussion happened with his firstborn child, whether or not to abort her and end her life. I think that resonated with millions of Americans. I mean, I meet people all the time you say I was on the operating table and I gotta walk out. I don't know why I do I You know, I didn't have the money. I was scared to death. But I just knew I couldn't have the abortion. And no day goes by that. I'm not grateful for making that. Choice for life, so I think what it was so well. It was so emotional. I think it regulated with so many Americans. Why do you think it's very sad? I was really something in Hollywood. You know articles about what car long with Connie West? Yes, Conquest is crazy and one I think we need to be very careful about how we label people crazy. This mental health in a very real concern in our names, and we shouldn't be labeling people who may have been, you know. Late diagnosis by Paul Alors crazy and it's okay. And it's okay to admit that some people have it. Thank you, Cristian. Sorry. Just cause we're out of time. But it is okay to stay. Some people have it right on some issues and wrong on others.

Jamaal Bowman unseats veteran Rep. Eliot Engel in New York primary
"Biggest upset of the primary season. So far, Jamal Bowman has unseated New York's long serving Democratic congressmen. Elliott angle. Bowman is a former school principal from the Bronx, and the race was widely seen as a contest between the parties Progressive Wing and the Democratic Old Guard the continuation of the dynamics in two years ago in New York. With the election of Alexandria. Ocasio Cortez. Jamal Bowman is here with me now. Welcome and congratulations. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. So you ran on a progressive platform in one of the bluest district in the country, New York 16th. But now, you know, I want to look ahead with you. Assuming you do end up in Congress, which is what most people are assuming, Let's just talk about how you intend to work with the rest of the Democratic caucus in the House. I want to start with the fact that you ran on Medicare for all. But the presumptive Democratic nominee for President Joe Biden, opposes Medicare for all. So how do you expect Democrats to resolve this issue on health care? A lot of conversation. Ah, lot of dialogue, Lather debate lot of listening a lot of learning on a lot of bridging the gap. I mean, the bottom line is the majority of the American people support Universal health care, a single payer system and Medicare for all, they supported that prior to the culvert pandemic, and now that we are living with in the midst of that pandemic. People supported and higher numbers. But here's the challenge. I mean, more generally. Obviously, this is a general election year. What do you say to the argument that pushing liberal policies during a presidential election year progressive policies? Could alienate voters in swing states and swing district. I don't think they will again when the majority of the American people are surveyed and pulled on this issue, the majority of the people support This particular issue, But beyond Medicare, for all, I mean, how do you make ideas like the green New deal or de funding the police popular in moderate district's? We're living in a different country at this moment, then we were even six or eight months ago. We have over 40 million people out of work as a result of the pandemic, So we need a federal jobs guarantee under the umbrella of a green new deal. We have kids who are losing quality education town because of the pandemic. So we need to fully fund our public schools called it disproportionately impacts. Those were upper respiratory illness as it relates to environmental injustice, So we need to deal with the environmental emergency. All of the things that we've kept swept under the rug for decades are now coming to light. As a longtime educator. What do you think? Is the single most important thing lawmakers Khun do to make life better for black Children? We need to start with a process of truth and reconciliation and really reckoning with our history of racial injustice and the legacy of slavery and how it continues to persist in all of our communities, and as we craft policy and worked together, we have to also look at the implementation of that policy, not from the perspective of a Scarcity, mindset or a zero sum game. This is about collaboration, cooperation and working together the build the country that works for everyone, But can you be specific? Can you talk about one specific policy idea that you would like to push? To get passed through Congress that could actually get past. By a Republican led Senate If the Senate does not flip in 2020 We need to give people back to work first and foremost, when we talk about full over 40 million people who have lost their jobs, their happening in Republican states and districts as well. We need to finally deal with economic inequality in our country. You need to make sure the wealthy pay their fair share and large corporations pay federal taxes so that we can invest in the people of our country. Get people back to work. A lot of comparisons have been drawn between you and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, also a progressive Democrat. What have you learned watching her navigate her first term in office. Is there anything you intend to do differently? Well, I've learned that it's okay to be myself. You know, Congresswoman Ocasio Cortez eyes a tremendous leader. She's brilliant. She's fearless, going against a system of white male supremacy, a cz. She's broken a glass ceiling in that system and created species. For new conversations that center, the working class and those who are most vulnerable. So I've I've learned it's okay to be myself and speak truth to power on the issues that matter, most to the people who have been mostly forgotten. Jamal Bowman, winner of the Democratic primary in New York, 16th congressional District, which covers parts of Westchester and the Bronx. Thanks for being with us, and congratulations again.
The Power of Bias and How to Disrupt It in Our Children with Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt
"I studied racial bias in particular in ratio, bias is a force that so powerful that it can influence everything from you know who teachers discipline in school to WHO's hired and promoted in the workplace. In the criminal justice system it can affect you know everything from who caps as suspicious on the streets to who jurors are gonNA sentenced to die in prison. So I'm I'm looking at the book? And in my work I look at how bias works, and how racial disparities can create bias as well so so bias can lead to disparities like the criminal justice system in our schools in our workplaces. But simply witnessing, those despair is taking in those disparities in spaces can reinforce bias, and so there's like a two way or sort of bidirectional relationship here, so it's like a cycle that is one creates the other, and then that reinforces the other. So, what can we do to disrupt this? Are there things that we can do to help ourselves to recognize our own biases? Be More aware of them and change them so I mean I can give you examples of ways in which people have disrupted by us in in their own spaces, one example would be with teachers so I've done work. Showing that teachers will discipline black middle school students much more harshly than white students for the same repeated infractions, and that's because teachers are thinking about those repeated infractions for for black students as being taught one is tied to the other like they see it. It as a pattern of misbehavior that needs to be shut down, and they see it as indicative of the Child. When the child is black, being troublemaker, but for white students they don't see one instance of misbehavior as connected to the others, so they don't make this sort of overarching a judgment about a white child who misbehaves or at least not to the same degree or in the same way, and so we see this, and even we see this for black children who are different children's so one black child misbehaves for example, and then a different black child misbehaves. The a teacher might respond to. That, second black student, as though he's misbehave twice right, so it's almost like the the sins of one child can get piled onto the other, but we don't We don't see teachers doing that so much for white students. They sort of big, think about white students as being individuals, and so, what one white tile does has absolutely nothing to do with what another white child does. So. We've done this work and so we were thinking about well. What could disrupt that like? How could we are teachers in a way where it doesn't trigger bias and whether or not contributing to these racial disparities in in terms of discipline? So one of the CO authors on the paper and the research just described. His name is Jason O'connor so he was looking at empathy as a way for disrupting. What he did was help teachers to reframe why it is that they were disciplining students, and then also you know what it was that caused children misbehave so the kind of broadened their focus to think about not just the misbehavior in the moment to think about what was producing that misbehavior.

Are you kidding me? So Marcellus Wiley and others is a No. Wait a minute. We must present ourselves available for life and employment by engaging in behavior that makes it valuable to others. And this is a sideline. I got to get back to the calls. I know. For slavery to have existed as long as it did in this country. America, by the way, didn't exist all 17 87 until the Constitution of we were rolled by European powers. From like, 15 19 to 17 97 1 About 270 years. 70 years. The Portuguese were here of the Spanish were here. The French where here the English were here. So America didn't exist until 17 87. From that point on We have an ideal to which we ascribe to. We want to get to that point. But during slavery, there were two main components of slavery that worked in America and works around the world in a sense, one Is that slaves could not be educated slaves cannot be literate because that is the conversational method by which information is passed on. And so if it was discovered by the slave owners They were all Democrats, by the way. Not a slave had a book or a Bible or that a slave was communicating that was considered verboten. They were beaten and punished terribly by the Democrats or with the slave owners. So you couldn't be educated Democrats didn't want that that own the slaves. And secondly, Had a breakout family structure. Goes, the slave owners in the South, instinctively instinctively knew that the pass on to the next generation Your feelings, your religion, Your attributes.

Or a significant amount of time so for me, I needed. Time? To disengage with. You know not everyone can do that and certainly not right now. But at some point, everyone should should take a beat and. Cana. What do you do? You know I think no is a form of self care I'm learning. Of Self Preservation of not extending myself. Not stressing myself out when I think back to my health and some of the challenges that I've had. When are I? Just think right before Kovac's happened. I was talking to my grandmother, my last living grandparent. He's eighty two and. She's giving me so much perspective while she always does, but especially now from. The perspective but I was talking to her about how I was feeling overwhelmed and things were preparing to ramp than everything got. Stopped. But I was telling her at the time I was feeling really stressed out and I said I wish things would just stop, and nothing would keep moving forward, and I wouldn't get any new requests, and that it would just like the pipeline just like stop amend Kovin happened, and it was like almost like home alone I wrote about on the blog. I called at my home alone moment when Kevin will up like mom. And but that's not what I meant. I did it mean this big everything. Stop with. That's essentially what happened. It was like no new requests. Everyone trading lately I. caught up on. Reading caught up on shows. We played games like we just did so many things as a family and it was like. Who have felt really good at I? Think now that things are starting to open up a now. We have the protests in were talking about black lives matter across the board. I think now that energy of overwhelmed I felt before. I can feel it coming up again. Some trying to also stay on top of my mental health I- maintaining my therapy appointments. Making sure that I have that time on the calendar. Make therapist that I. don't push that off. As much as I would want to do more physical activity more workouts. I'm more apt to do something like Jesse dance with the kids are, or if I get overwhelmed, just walk around the block. I am still pretty. Tight on social distancing just because of my health, you know with my immune system being compromised, but I think I have been really good about finding the lease to move my body to bre- when I felt overwhelmed and just kind of like. Fill myself in that way when I need to take a break But I I find between the mental health, and the no those are made to tactics from a self care perspective that are working for me right now. I had the exact same way you did. Because I thought back to all the times when I was in bed, and I was like Oh, I wish I could just like. Stay in bed and not go anywhere. Not Do anything and then when everything happened. I talked to one of our gas. Who talked about decolonized parenting which? I am going to save. You haven't heard that episodes really good. and. She. Talked about a little bit about what even talking about here about like capitalism how we feel, we need tablet things and work all the time and be productive all these things. And then when this happened, it was like you have to be home, and you have to like okay, but this I met. I feel like I manifested this and this is. Like I we have to be really careful about the way we say we want things. 'cause visits is not the way. I pictured staying home in bad all the time. Where you know.

"Extra, work is parents I imagine because like you said you have to be super intentional. You have to kind of be vocal like if they go to a majority white school. or Even if you go to a school that has diversity but. A lot of times. The administration's are not diverse, so then you have all these brown and black children attending schools where? Their cultures are not being celebrated. In a way that. Really celebrates right not just like we're going to read this book about Martin Luther King because it's Martin Luther King Day week, but really really having those discussions. Which I also think is something that as parents were black children. You have to go the extra step if you're living those. Communities that. Aren't. Quite right that aren't. Predominantly. Absolutely so. Let's talk about joy as an act of resistance because. It's really hard to be joyful right now. But I love this idea. Of Finding Joy. Because I think that that kind of keeps us going, I was having a discussion with my husband this morning I, said. It's really hard. Like I don't want to think about the conspiracy theories and I don't want to think about all these. Awful things, because then what else is there? You know like I? WanNa think that there is a better future ahead man. I think that in the midst of all this chaos. Joy Or kind of taking a back just looking at our children and the way they see things helps us continue the work because. If you're in the space in your an activist near. Like. It's it can wear you down so easily so. Talk to me a little bit about I mean. Do you agree you don't agree? You could say you don't agree you know. How do you joy in? What do you think about this idea that? They can't take our joy I read that somewhere i. don't remember where but. I agree I think during this time I've been really open to my kids filling all of the emotions, and so when they do get angry or frustrated. I'm like yes I totally understand why. You don't WanNa. Sit On zoom for another hour and do your work like I. Yeah, you can be angry about that so this whole time I fully let my kids experience all the fill in even when they. They get loopy and they get cabin fever, and all of that part of the the coping mechanism is finding joy in those moments is is laughing, and there are moments where I sit down, and just cry and cry, but then I remember like you know Carol Baskin is they're still in the world, and just think with the Tigers, and you know all that silliness. I'm just like you know what. We can walk and Chew Gum. We can have our all of our emotions and frustrations, and we can laugh at the ridiculousness of at all. And so I think that is a form of resistance that I'm not GonNa, let it get me such. The situation put me in such despair that I can't see the humor in it all or even the fact that they said the murder Hornets were gonNA come I mean. I was I thought that was more funny than I was concerned like. What do you do account? You're really good about posting. On social media and the three of us have a presence meteorite. You're very good about. You know like. Resources and there's a protest and there's this and there's that and then you post. You know like I went out for ice cream.

"black children" Discussed on Parenting and Politics
"Through a political lens. Donald Monje today. The day were recording. This is June six twenty twenty. We are in day seventy something of being quarantined here in New York City where I'm located on May twenty fifth, an unarmed black man, George Floyd was murdered by police officer Minneapolis. The video that has made its rounds around. The world, showed a police officer, crushing this man with his knee and the World Watch as George Floyd pleaded for his life. This event came right after we witness a white woman amy. Cooper call the COPS in an African American man in Central Park in New York City where it was clear that she was using her white privilege to put that man's life in danger. For over a week we pat protests over the United States the protests the vigils continue for George Floyd and for all the people who have been victims of police brutality. All the black lives that we lost due to police brutality. That's what's happening right now in the United States. I've talked about black motherhood before about racial injustice intersection -ality today we're going to have a discussion about raising black children. The United States because I think it's important for those of us. Who are not raising children to hear about what this means. Lack moms or less likely to be listened to while giving birth suffer higher mortality rates in black bays or more likely to die within their first year. Children are more likely to be expelled from school. Lack children are more likely to go schools that are underfunded and lack resources. They are also more likely to be seen as adults rather than kids. Twenty seventeen study from Georgetown Law, researchers found that black girls as five or already seen as less innocent meeting less support than white girls of the same age. What children are more likely to end up in juvenile detention incarcerated leader on. Of course there are other disparities that affect African American communities like living in food deserts, having higher rates of asthma, diabetes and other illnesses, and of course lack of access to affordable healthcare. These communities suffer from over policing in high incarceration rates. The list goes on and on, and there's no denying that the real systemic issues that affect lecture in black families. So that's the backdrop of conversation today and I ve very excited to welcome to guests today. I Bay. The founder of the blog Harlem lovebirds. Canada's currently living in Boston with her children and husband. And Vanessa bell the founder of this woman Ma a blog about creating legacy in raising multi racial children than episodes from California, but relocated to Costa, Rica last year with her family. Thank you so much for being with me. Having us, thank you. So I always the podcast with the same question when we talk about parenting in politics, what comes to mind and why should we be talking about these things together? For me, I almost had my own political awakening. Having been important New Hampshire in two thousand fourteen. In the wake of the election, the two thousand sixteen election so New Hampshire is a very political place. That's where the first. One of the first primaries happens so the. Candidates they come up there with all their stump speeches and making their rounds, but at the time when I moved there from New York City to New Hampshire I was grounded because I was home with my infant son, and my daughter was in preschool, so I had a front row seat to the candidates coming up. There were lots of events I would just take my kids with me and we would see it. Firsthand it was like a front row seat. It's I didn't go with any agenda, which is curious. These political events are happening here in this community. What's going on and I? Think? In that period of being a mother, being at home with my children, and being very focused on them, and having the flexibility to be able to pay attention to politics which I think, there's some privileges I was really able to engage in so in two thousand fourteen to where I'm at right now. I would say that was really the start of my political awakening. And and that's where I saw. My own. PARENTI politic intersection start to happen. I think for me it. It began.

Instead of being pushed to be even better than it's up to their fullest potential, so the point is is any race at all are treated like black people. We would get the same results so I think it's about time. Birth rate down, everyone is expected to carry your own weight. And I WANNA know when the people in government I've GONNA. Treat black people like the people who've been here building this country forever. Other nationalities come here and they're able to find their way. Yet even they turn around and oppressed black people, so the point is. We're no different from anyone else. Manslaughter has the Iraqi of need every human need that. Yeah, we're not to call and the. Perspective go ahead. That's really interesting. You know that's the thing that we're different but you know like always absent. This and I don't i. don't remember where I read it, but black people in America. Really epitomized the E. pluribus unum. Because we were, we were many different. Ethnic and cultural people that were brought here and because of white supremacy in that idea that you needed to hold people as property, we were made one giant group, and then that group was criminalised for the next four hundred years into a sense that we right now in this quote, Unquote Color Blind Society we're not we legitimately or not looking at what actually is causing a lot of the problems right? The millet they increasing militarization of the police, the insistent on arrest, the the idea of intentional bias in how that plays out. That's give an and then pour police. Police Training I got tattoos on both of my arms in order to get those tattoos I had to go to somebody who had twelve months of training and got gotTa Dry, get a license and had to spend most of that town as into what in an apprenticeship, twelve months most police training in America is twenty two weeks, and most of his less than that, so you take twenty two weeks. You give them a lot of money. You give them a lot of money in federal money for making arrests, you let them. Will you allow them to have implicit? And poor training. It's the perfect storm it's. It actually show. It actually starts working the way it's supposed to. Just. Ask because it does feel like we're maybe possibly starting to have these conversations in a real way that that can lead to systemic change Are you guys as fathers optimistic for viewers? In any way I know. It's a mixed bag here. He talked about all the incredible. Anxiety and depression that you've had to deal with and. That sense of value.

Congress Announces Willingness To Give Black Lives Matters Protestors Statue Or Holiday
"Weeks of nationwide protests bird by the police killing of George Floyd. Congressional leaders are finally taking action lawmakers in Washington today officially announce their willingness to give black lives matter protesters, statue, or a holiday or something for more. I'm joined by OPR Congressional correspondent Charles Dearborn Charles. Can you give us a little more context sure Leslie? We've seen sustained protests in all fifty states demanding. Demanding Accountability from those in power, and now Congress has heeded their call. Here's main representative Edward Knicks on how this all came to be. People around this nation are calling for dramatic change. I can assure you that we intend to meet this moment with the support. It deserves a nice memorial. Say or perhaps a national day of remembrance that Individual States can decide to declare an. An official day off work if they want. Wow, that's pretty impressive stuff. It is indeed if passed, it would be some of the most sweeping federal legislation to address racial inequality in decades. Nice to see them finally putting their money where their mouth is. So what stages the legislation at right now there is a bill currently being drafted, so the details are still being hammered out. Out One of the biggest decisions, obviously will be whether to give them a statue or a holiday. Here's an ex with more I want to say to my constituents in the country. We have heard your message. Loud and clear enough is enough, and we intend to show this building a statue of a white hand, holding a black hand or some black children, looking inspirational or something. But then again a day I probably wouldn't cost us as much. Maybe that's the way to go. That's terrific, so do we expect this lot of pass? Well? Of course, it will have to go through a Republican controlled Senate and several members of already been pushing to dilute the bill by providing only a small metal plaque, or just rolling the whole thing to Martin Luther King Day will these all sound like great options to me, but should we expect this to appease the protesters? Based on talking to several senators, the black lives matter members are going to be very excited about this big step, and this is probably the last will hear from them while and do we have any comment from any of these activists. Sounds good. Thanks for the report, Charles. That's OPR's channels Dearborn back with more right after this.

The author of White Rage on the persistent pattern of punishing blacks for their resilience
"Professor Carol Anderson Thank, you so much for coming on the PODCAST. Thank you so much for having me Jonathan, thank you? Okay so your your book, White Rage the unspoken truth of our racial divide. Came out of. An op Ed that you wrote for the. Washington Post in August of twenty fourteen in it was trying to explain to to people but white people in particular why the why Ferguson and the protests in Ferguson were about a whole lot more than the killing of Michael Brown explain, and and so that that op-ed really came out a watching the news in the did matter which channel I. Had you know which station whether it was FOX MSNBC CNN? They were all saying the same thing. Look at all this black rage looking all of these folks bird down where they live with that. That kind of Narrative A. Lack pathology piece running in there well I have lived in Missouri for thirteen years. I knew what that state had done to black people, and that was nowhere in that that media narrative of Ferguson, so I set up to ripeness fees to put that historical perspective in there. And to make clear that. Would have said in the piece. We are so focused in on the planes that we missed the kindling. Kindling owner, those policies that systematically undermine African American. Citizenship rights their human rights. And those policies often come in a nasty way. With African Americans have made some kind of significant advancement in order to gain their citizenship rights. And Bass what we were seeing so I set out to provide that hysteria historical context with also to make clear that if we look at the policies. That are coming out of White House and Congress out of state legislatures. Out of zoning boards. The. We're having a very different kind of conversation about what is happening. Whom you're? Key paragraph in that OP ED is white rage, and you mentioned white way rage recurs in American history. It exploded after the civil war erupted again to undermine the Supreme Court's Brown v Board of Education Decision and took on its latest incarnation with Barack Obama's sent to the White House for every action of African American advancement, there's a reaction a backlash, and to read that and and I want to really get you to dive in to the more expansive argument in your book, but what I took from from just that paragraph and especially the last that last sentence I read. Is that what we're going through? Even though it is painful, horrendous horrific. In, a lot of ways. dispiriting. We've been here before. We've been through this cycle before. Yes I, and and it's the. It's one of the things that just is astounding. Amazing given that you've got a nation that seems to wallow in the language of black pathology, if only black people were. Value Education then their schools would look like that. If only black people would not be folks and we wouldn't have had the police all over them. If only black people valued property, they couldn't have nice homes in only black people if Lately if only black people were just exercise that maybe the corona virus would get them so. So you get this language of black people, just not doing. But in fact when you look at the history, you see such incredible drives, such incredible resilience, such incredible creativity. That that amassing that creativity that refusal to accept subjugation. Creates this. Anger Within the larger white community that black people will not accept, subjugation would not accept bear place. And what you see happening them. Is that as these moments happen? You get this massive. Massive backlash, I'll take Brown Brown decision alone. We Harold Brown. Because of the way that it it drove is supposedly drove a stake through the heart of Plessey Ferguson is separate but equal. After Brown, you have states that have already been organizing to figure out how to undercut the Supreme Court decision, which would be the law of the land, so law-abiding for nigger now how to undercut. Below Lane. and. They came up with massive resistance where you have one hundred one Congressional representatives signing manifesto. Saying only do everything in their power. To to dismantle to block. The Brown decision you have schools. Shutting down for years, and what these registers do. They shut down the public schools. And provided in funding for white. Children to go to school. But nothing for black children. Those white children were going to all white private academies. Think about that, so you get black people fighting for quality education. And the states rising up saying we will systematically deny your children that education, so that narrative of black with. This false.

There's no there is no case where there is a parent that child would not be under duress in that situation but yet here come. Bcs with a contract for you to sign when you're not you can't beat mentally cognitive that of what it is just signing so guess what you did you sign it when they don't have a right to have you sign a contract without it being voluntarily done and so you you're saying you're going to do something to take away. Somebody's child of course they're GONNA sign it. Let me ask you something. What does this protective agreement stipulates and? Why can a almost make you sign this contract in this agreement without the vice of lawyer? So I'm because this is not a criminal investigation. The rules are. Kinda different when it comes to Miranda and that's that's part of seven angels the laws of we're putting forward to fight. This is that you should be Miranda's and you should be afforded attorney soon as you are approached by the Because it is in fact an interrogation at the moment that they come into contact with parents or anybody that is suspected of abuse. And the reason why this those are noticed a lot of time because you don't have that legal protection there. You don't have attorney dance to protect these parents to say. Hey we're not gonNA sign. You can't take the baby if we don't the law says that the signing of oppy a must be voluntarily and so the Eighteenth Tsa well. It was voluntarily. But it'd be like well you didn't tell me that. I had a choice but that that nine times out of ten never come of the washes never questioned as there is no recording of anything. There's nothing that you gotta sign. The says that this order is that this agreement is terribly you just have to agency saying where they signed it and every wheel when navid not true? You shouldn't have anybody standing any contracts at any time When you are presented you know somebody that's going to be interested. They're found out. The child is hurt the now under investigation. You've got the police year. You might be getting your child taken away from your your child. Put it up for adoption. That's too much stress. That'd be bringing somebody a contract the sign at that time alright. So CPS COM. They have this protective agreement. Your daughter signs protective agreement. What happens next? Okay so What's interesting I want to go to the happen next? Let me say within end this protective of Freeman though mine you bay. The dcfs worker had just came in contact with my in the in the baby's father and the protective agreement it had all ready stated what the EPS worker thought had happened. She claimed that this was that. The baby was injured as a result of domestic abuse. It was already written out. She already put in protective agreement. That a fast assessment was done in a fast assessment has to be done with the family. Ns series of questions. It's very narrow which will determine or help determine what kind of services the family may need in order to be reunited with with the child and so all of this stuff came already pre field out in the APP. Pa and so you know CPS supposed to do with their investigation. Well if you haven't had the time to investigation. How do you already know what happened?

"For a black child is not on the streets. It's not what they see a police officer. It's in their mothers. More than half of the black population. Population would be doubled today. If it wasn't for abortion. We've lost eighteen million black babies is nineteen Seventy-three. How's that for a progressive policy? Is that what they're celebrating? Yes. They are are absolutely celebrating that on the left Kansas, and she was at CPAC this year had very strong conviction as she normally does she also leading the charge for the charge of blogs it here often with that. That is basically blacks exiting the what they will refer to as the democrat plantation. You're not supposed to say that if you're white by the way, especially if you live where I do like, those are stoning words, but I'm not afraid clearly so why because it matters excuse me. It matters. When I visit a congressman's district, am I state who who's just been hailed as like ITO matter of fact, they just named a freedom Parkway after the John Lewis freedom Parkway, he's a gentleman who marched with Dr Martin Luther King. He is someone who has, you know, things of his past that are that are commendable the accolades stand on their own. But some people are not happy unless they're not happy late like you like they never want to get they never want to achieve freedom because once someone's free some people are just born activists. And it's like what do you do once the battles over? What do you do especially if you've made a living off of it abortions and industry death is an industry? Crime is an industry racism race baiting is an industry feminism is an industry, and these are all the things that you see all these social issues going on right now in congress. This is where all of this begins. It begins in our own mirrors. That begins in our own understanding of who we are why we are who we are as a nation. We've been how far we've come. Narrative hijackers narrative shapers people who have a vested interest in holding the nation hostage to dead ideas. Dead feelings dead beliefs. That's what you're up against. It's not in your congressmen and women are not going to solve this. By the way. It's going to happen in your neighborhoods. It's going to happen in your own mirror is going to happen around your dinner table, your car pool rides. You know, every interaction you have with a neighbor, you're going to be the person who's going to maintain this Republic and her integrity. I love Kansas Owens, because she's not she's not confused about the issues. She knows who she is woman, and she's not afraid to stand on that. And I think we need more young women like her every time I speak at a Republican function. They'll ask me. What do we do where do we go? Are we going to maintain the party, Mike? Well, first thing you can do is reach out to your people. You're young women. Hey, get smart guys. If this is the year of the woman, then put your best in your brightest on the front lines. And politics start investing your time your treasure and your talent and women conservative women. Who are I'm not talking about Murkowski and Collins's of the world. I'm talking women who will stand on the side of life without confusion without wavering. Women who understand conservative values women who can speak to the economic issues of our times women who do not believe in glass ceilings, women who understand they're worth. What do you can fire democrat so much better at the ground game early? Speaking of that right now the going door to door of buses handing out walking around money. So they're better at that. I'll tell you as a campaign manager, this is what I ran into there. They're much better at that. And we are because they understand how to get to the emotion of the voter. And we all vote emotionally. That's how we vote. I don't care. How logical you think. You are. How all about the numbers? Economically driven. You are in factually and data driven. That's not how people votes clearly president, Donald J Trump. Is a prime example of that people were fed up people who have never been conservative or like, you know, what what the hell. I'm done. I'm done with this crowd. The way that it is like his time. Like, we're drowning over here, we disarm people. Just get the fact that their heads like about to go under..
"black children" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"Are. We are crank are pumped. We are ready to go to start with this. Because I posted this article a couple of days ago. This woman up in New York in Brooklyn. She had accused this nine year old little boy of groping her. She was at the counter. And she accused us nine year old boy of groping her at a deli last week. Jeremiah Harvey is mom, so Meco Delile told attendees and a neighborhood meeting. The episode was more than just a misunderstanding. And here, here's here's the astounding thing. The first all the kids nine. He's nine. Now apologized because looking at the video he didn't touch her, but he walked past in a crowded Delhi and his backpack brushed her rear end. She she's I'm calling the police on you young man on you, not on the mother not anything else. She was going to make his life a living. Hell. So the black child white woman. The the mother says I do not forgive this woman. She needs help. You know, frankly, if I were in the mom's position, I would have a little difficulty of forgiving this woman to. You can hear the kid the initial video you can hear the kid crying as this woman is pointing at him saying, I've called the police on you. I charge you with sexual harassment. Oh, the metoo movement is alive and well up in Brooklyn, folks. This is real crisis for the Bloomberg left. Of course, who do you believe? The metoo woman. Or the black child. Video shows Jeremiah has younger sister crying on the sidewalk as MS client called the authorities and the mom Delile stood nearby. This. This woman is now apologized. She said, well, it really wasn't me. The mother escalated the situation, although you look at the video, and there's nothing that the mother did to escalate the situation. This is simply a metoo. Mommy. Although I have no idea she's married. This is you know. Brooklyn borough president Eric Adams. Labeled as a modern day Emmett till moment. Yeah. It's a little extreme. But until we've talked about a couple of times on this show lynched in Mississippi nineteen fifty five after a white woman accused him of whistling at her in a grocery store. And now, you have this woman all full of Romy to self saying I have been groped you must believe me. I know hashtag. Me too me too. The generation that what's now called the hashtag was always the pound sign. So I always read that pound me too. It took me a couple of minutes to figure out what's going on. Really? That's what you're saying. You want to what? So there you go. There's no apologized for this. Whoops, g so sorry. And she can carry her shame around with her. She got me she became known as a quarter Stein. Caroline cornerstone. Caroline. I don't know if that's her first name or not. But it's as a certain amount of I think, it's onomatopoeia is that right? When words kind of sound like the bond together. It's just astounding to me whatever happened to saying oh gosh. Your nine year old brushed against me. Unless she has a particularly exalted opinion of her took us, which may be the case. It could be that her her feeling is people pay a lot of money to touch her took us in this nine year old got into free grope, either pony up feller and call the cops on you. I can't be inside her mind. Norwood a heavy need doing. So it's just interesting to note. That this is a collision of two of the protector groups inside the political left, and she may they stink of it. And now there are those in Brooklyn of across the country, of course, because this thing went viral literally the video of him walking by her with his backpack brushing against her. But. While sheep accused him of groping her nine-year-old. Right. So who do you believe now those on the political left or having real difficulty with this? Because they don't know what to do you have to hear her truth, even if her truth conflicts with the evidence. At the same time. You have to protect minority groups inside the democrat big tent. So it's clear this is white racism, but wait a minute. She's not a conservative. She's one of these metoo people's. So they've had difficulties trying to sort this one out. Oh, shucks. I'm so sorry. You did not. So there you have it and at the same time other real actual assaults arguing on across country, and they're going on with a fair degree of regularity. That's slowly escalating I posted a couple of pieces on this. Here are the eight most recent. And then I have ninth. California congressional candidate Rudy Peters. Republican. He's challenging democrat Eric swallow. Well, escaped a stabbing attempt in September. Here's a Tekere Farzad. Zely shouted disparaging remarks about Republicans before attempting to stab him with switchblade. Or a male democrat operative. This is fairly recent assault. A female Trump's staffer. He chased after they staffer for interior secretary. Ryan, zinc. Same male democrat operative assault, a female GOP campaign manager. This is the same American bridge operative Wilfred stark arrested this past week for chasing. And assaulting gubernatorial nominee, Adam lack salts campaign manager charged with battery for the attack which left E woman, Bruce as well as terrified. Vandals threw a brick through the window of the Nebraska GOP office. The Republican staffers onto a spray painted message beneath the broken window abolish ice. You have an individual chased by property destroying anarchists. The individual is Minnesota state Representative Sarah Anderson, she was attacked this past Sunday after calling out a man who is kicking over campaign yard signs. I said you can't do this. He said, yes, I can. I'm an anarchist. I can do whatever I want. I said, no, you can't that's not your property. She said the man then chased her into the street and told her to go kill herself. Another Minnesota Republican state Representative Shane Mechlin said he received a concussion October twelve when he was assaulted by a man he believes was politically motivated. Well, I never met this guy. The words yelled at me before he attacked lead me to believe his actions were politically motivated, you said they police are investigating. Windows New York GOP office having shuttered as well. Left graffiti warnings the perpetrators behind a graffiti and warrant are attack is merely the beginning. Now, this this is all in addition to an onslaught of harassment death threats other politicians have received during the past twelve months. Hello, Steve Scalise. You seem to kick. This whole thing off you have Republican senators docks by House Democrats staffer so that their home addresses and phone numbers were given out. So that those are the record left to go after them at home. Of course, you had Ted Cruz a harassed and chase out of restaurants Kirstin Nielsen and her staff same deal. Sarah, Huckabee Sanders, refused service in a restaurant. Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee, Orrin Hatch their addresses all posted shortly after each spoke at the hearing. Florida and charged with threatening to shoot members of congress. Who voted on the Cavaliers issue? And now this and we try to get this audio for you. But to be really honest. The guy. Can't get half a sentence out without dropping the f bomb twice. It was phenomenal. We would have had to do a massive editing job. And I'm not quite sure what it made any sense. You know, as you you effing this f f f f f ING etcetera etcetera. So this New York City guy member of antifa thought, it'd be fun to verbally assault. A woman who is sporting a NYPD hat and an American flag T shirt. This happened in Portland, of course. He hurled several insults. Adder suggested. Her husband was abusive, and that's a mild way of saying it. She then turned at him and said my husband died in September eleventh terror attack. He said good, you're a snarky little effing idiot. And she said my husband died on nine eleven good for him. The man said good the NYPD are sodomizing immigrants with your bully sticks. So your husband should probably rot in his grave. This exchange a pulled from a video done by Brandon Farley. He's been filming the violent behavior at tea for for the past couple of years. Even more shocking. Of course, was no one around the woman at least as far as we consume the venue. Nobody stepped in to defend her from this eight. Nobody. That's because it's. New York, New York. There you go. And it's a little unclear if this happened in New York City, or in Portland either way, the idea that people simply standard side, let this guy verbally harass. This widow of a guy who died on nine eleven. And apparently this so irritated the guy. What he wanted her to do was to turn around and try to hit him. So he can then justify expose cook. Number Jesus hitting Jesus. It's just really. Really? So there you have it the violence from the blizzard lift continues to escalate. It is. What it is. And the keep saying, of course, it's coming from both sides. No, it's not. It is not coming from both sides. It is coming from the anarchists. And the left-wing Nazis who now seem to run the democrat party. Again, I hearken back to this call we had earlier this week guy called up and said, I'm a democrat. I'm a capitalist yada, yada, yada. Do you think I'm a good American? I thought was like saying when did you stop beating your wife? I'm supposed to give him some kind of an answer that that hangs me up in some fashion. My response was I actually think if you're a capitalist joined the wrong political party. I also think for those of you on the political left that if you believe in the rule of law, if you believe in presumed innocent until proven guilty cornerstones of the US Justice system, and you say, but I'm a proud democrat. You're in the wrong political party because that is not what today's democrat party who believes in. Today's democrat party believes you have to hear hear her truth. You have to say, basically, the Republicans. They don't really have rights. You're supposed to dismiss the idea that anybody on the GOP has the right to do anything. They don't. Stupidly yolks. You know, those right wing extremists guys who believe in due process, innocent proven guilty. And here's one of the interesting things about this. There are new polls that show that the cavenaugh here two very very interesting things. We'll see this actually plays out less than three weeks from right now. One is the GOP base has become intensely energized. Because of this. And an awful lot of people who were kind of interested in going out to vote on the political right are now intensely interested in going out to vote, but the other affected seemed to have had is that women now by a significant majority. According to recent polling, I think it's the FOX boulevard call correctly. Indicate that they they like the Democrats better. I suppose they've bought into the con. Truly, I suppose they bought into the idea that well, Kevin are really is a rapist and others. Horrible Republicans have put a rapist on the US supreme court. It's the big lie. You tell a big lie often enough and long enough sooner or later, people just might believe it. Now, I'm not quite sure what the size of the sample was for this or with the margin of error was. But clearly the results were well outside the margin of error for even the sloppiest pulse. Whether this plays out in this fashion. In less than three weeks. We'll have to see. There are indications that Democrats are losing enthusiasm for going to the polls three weeks from. Now, the lead that they once had which is run eighteen points down now to somewhere between five and six points. And that may not be enough to actually have them flip the house a current estimates. Charlie cook has come out and said estimates are they may pick up somewhere between twenty and forty seats of its twenty seats the house stays in GOP hands. If it's forty seats, obviously, the GOP gets clobbered and a couple of weeks the Senate Hariri, which seem that the GOP is going to be picking up a couple of seats in the Senate. That's at least how it looks right now. Heidi Heitkamp is in serious trouble. We'll talk about that coming up, and what she has done that paves the way for a GOP victory there for Heidi Heitkamp, the democrat to lose her seat that conversation. Straight ahead. Those are my opening observations. I'd like.
