Author Sabrina Strings on the Racial Origins of Fat Phobia
"To the podcast. Sabrina thank you on so excited to have you so tell us about how you started to explore issues of body image and wait specifically for women of color while this is actually almost like a family legacy for me. My grandmother was born in rural georgia during the late nineteen thirties and so she was growing up the jim crow era and lived in a racially segregated community as part of the great migration in nineteen sixty. She traveled west and at that time for the first time in her life she lived and worked around white women and she was amazed by the number of white women diets. Seems like what is this. You know sort of like a typical black grandmother fashioned. By the time. I came of age in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s. When i was in high school she was still troubling over. This question like what is going on here. She would even ask me like why women dying to be thin. And i was like sixteen years old but it wasn't until about ten years later when i was working in a predominantly black community in san francisco baby hunters points. I met women of color who were hiv positive. And we're attaining an hiv medication adherence clinic where i was a researcher who refuse to take their medications for fear of gaining weight. And i thought oh. Wow you know this. What was clearly a phenomenon that was mostly about middle class white women in the nineteen sixties arguably even through the ninety s. Clearly by the early dots was something. That was impacting women of color as well so i wanted to be able to dig further into this question of why is it so important for women of all racial ethnic backgrounds at this point to feel like they need to discipline themselves and maintain a particular.

Pro-Abortion Democrats Support Less People of Color
"Very concerned about Choices. Except when it comes to health care, except when it comes to education. Except when it comes to any aspect of a free persons life they wish to impose their will. In every way possible. Except when it comes to a boarding babies. And choice. Trump's life. It just does. Notice. The radical abortionists. Don't say look in the case of a mother's health. Or rape. Or some other circumstance. You know, that's when we support abortion. They never say that they support it right to the end partial birth abortion funded by all taxpayers, whether they want to funded or not, whether it's part of their belief system or not. No exceptions. Then I noticed most of the people who argue this are White supremacists. Like Nancy Pelosi, because I guess we're all white supremacists. Right, Mr Producer. The white supremacist Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi. Chuck Schumer. Because In the black community. The proportion of abortions. Far outweighs the percentage of the black community as a Percentage of the population. So for the white dominated white supremacist American Marxist movement, a k A. That includes the Democrat Party. Obviously they're not interested in more people of color. They're interested in less people of color.
Why the Civil Rights Movement Was a Bad Thing for Black People
"What are some of the hot topics we you said you wanted to talk about. Pride month prior month so black people only get twenty eight days but Lgbtq pride month is it's now the month of june and june teeth which is in june cuts into pride month. So it's fundamentally homophobic uh-huh need to talk about that so i'm gonna say something that's groundbreaking and is going to offend. A lot of people are right. The civil rights movement was the worst thing to happen to this nation into the black community. Why because the civil rights movement pivoted this. lgbtq narrative and it's also pivoting. Pedophilia push as a form of sexuality. Follow me for a second. we're gonna have to. This is crazy. But i'm gonna be real with you. People don't tune out. Could this always ends well. But you gotta hang in is heavy so now which helped understand the segregation was not an all of the united states of america. Right it was only in the south correct right so let's talk about. Harriet tubman for a second. I'm as an example slave in maryland. She traveled a hundred miles north to philadelphia. The moment she touched philadelphia. She was a free woman right. So this tells you in the north. Obviously since i found it fathers there was no slavery. It always was in the south. Okay jim crow laws and all of this stuff. This success always in the south. Now you may have. Had the north people like marco mex and all of these people talk about it and take on the culture in a sense of the depravity of what was happening but that wasn't there portion right so now martin luther king comes in. He says listen. We want to have the same abilities in the same access to what white people have but we had it. We have built our own schools. We had owned businesses. Our homes solid right so now. Civil rights comes in Jfk dies and the newborn johnson steps in and he says listen. I understand your struggle. we're going gonna make it equal for everybody but we also do a warm poverty. We're going to give you guys welfare
Vivek Ramaswamy on the Hypocrisy of 'Woke' Corporate America
"Very important book out woke inc inside corporate america's social justice. Scam vivek rama. Swamy is the author of his national best. He's a very successful entrepreneur. And he understands what's going on so my first question was other than cowardice. How would you explain it. I find his explanation in addition to cowardice. Effective it's a smokescreen for all the bad stuff that they do. So i'd like to develop that Theme vivek and will begin a with the example of nike. Which if it didn't begin. The current wave of anti-american hatred from the corporate america. It certainly was one of the big starters of it. What animates nike. Look i think it is a in large part the same theme with one additional nuance that i wanted to get to. The same theme is that they're using woke smoke to cover up their act business taxes. Because i'll tell you then it is a lot. Easier to verbally criticizes slavery two hundred fifty years ago than it is to reduce your reliance on slavery today and i will tell you they source their shoes from slave labor in asia to sell to fifty dollar sneakers to black kids in the inner city. Who can't afford to buy books for school. All in the name of serving black communities and don't intend to millions of dollars to black lives matter marxist organization that professes to care about black lives. What called for the decimation of nuclear family structure and i think for nike that allows them to sell more sneakers. Allow them to build a better brand with the community to whom they are selling those shoes while deflecting accountability from actually relying on not flavor two hundred fifty years ago when the united states was born but slavery today into your twenty twenty one in the present without being held to account for it and there's two dimensions on nike where they criticize the united states to no end but they do not take a peep about drew human rights atrocities in china where you have over a million weavers in concentration camps subject to forced sterilization and communist indoctrination and nike ceo. John donahoe goes earlier this summer to china and says we are a brand of china and four china. Those are his words not mine. But i also think that in some ways consumers in the united states got in in order to be what nike consumers demand is for us
Black Church's 'Street Team' Encourages Connecticut Residents to Get Vaccinated
"Connecticut, a historically black churches, sending teenagers door to door over the summer to encourage residents to get the covid vaccine. Connecticut has one of the highest vaccination rates in the country. But it is a very different story in the town of Waterbury. Here's Ali Oshinsky from Connecticut Public radio. Police. Taylor is hitting 10,000 steps a day. A lot of them on hills and up to front doors to ask crime, ma'am, Are you interested in taking the Covid 19 vaccine? This person already got hurt. Oh, great. So I think we left the information Flyer. Yeah, right at your door. So if you do know anyone who's not vaccinated you can share with them. Thank you. Taylor is 15 and she's part of the Grace Baptist Church Street team. Every weekday morning, she and seven other teens pair up and walk around Waterbury, knocking on doors to have conversations like that one. I'll try to do you know my little bit what we do have people back at the church that will, you know, walk them through. There were ease. The process starts with the street team. Residents get a knock and a flyer. The teens were trained to ask a few questions and take down a phone number. If there's interest someone from a phone bank can call later to arrange an in home shot or transportation to a vaccine clinic. Grace Baptist pays the teens $15 an hour with funds from a state vaccine equity program. The pastor Christopher Reese, says this church is trying to make it as easy as possible for Waterbury residents to get their shot. Especially in black communities. My church, I think, is maybe 90% vaccinated. Why? Because their leader, their pastor has been pushing it now races trying to be that leader beyond his congregation. Connecticut ranks near the top for the percentage of residents that are fully vaccinated. But Waterbury lags behind the numbers are especially low among the city's black residents. Just around a third are fully immunized.

"black community" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"Equally traumatic experiences but unfortunately even as therapy has become more mainstream. The black community has had a tough time getting the help that they need. I don't know if you've heard twenty twenty was a crazy year Off the pandemic. we had the election. We have to uprisings that. Occurred after the murders of george floyd ahmed. Aubrey brianna taylor. I needless to say we were country. That needed some therapy especially black people in the black community access to mental health. Care is lacking black and hispanic. Children are less likely to get mental health care then white kids and studies show that irritability and the average white teenager as often labelled as depression. That same behavior is more likely to be seen as disruptive black latino children and doctors say that can lead to feelings of hopelessness at a very young age. We have a stigma in the black community when it comes to dealing with mental health black students say where they come from it shameful to talk about anxiety depression and trauma making the crisis worse. Not enough african american therapists today. Only four percent of psychologists are black. It's a serious issue and then have insulted therapist who don't understand you. That could make matters even worse. Like imagine wasting half you'll session explain what while out means like you'd have to stop every ten minutes talking to a white their pets to break down some of the damage or imagine how awkward it gets telling your white therapist state urine therapy because white people but that'd be like the road runner into another coyote about why i oughta i don't have time to break this down to segment that we did on the show that was only six and a half minutes in. There's a lot more to explore with this issue and that's why we have to go on the scenes so to help me do that. I'd like to bring into wonderful wonderful people from the daily show. I saw these people in the hallways numerous times before the shutdown i. I'd like to introduce ashton womack. He's a producer in researcher for the daily show with trevor noah ashton day to you sir from parts unknown wherever you are whatever is gonna stay parts unknown. Because i don't trust nobody on the internet. Woulda you're literally on the internet right now talking to but that's okay. I just heard is that of one of our many emmy nominated writers on the daily mail x. What is happening. How roy now. It's my job to take this topic and kind of merge. We're youtube came in because you both have different entry points but you all are intrical part in how the show is created on the day to day. The best thing the best analogy. I can give to these two for the listeners. you know you have a producer. Researching you have a writer. The producer researcher. He goes in shops for the groceries. The writer is the schiff with is that analogy. Does that make sense at all. Does it even a great analogy. If i bring the popcorn apples the milk and i tell to make me a great essay. What the fuck is this is. Two dollars do popcorn apples and milk. But i grew up on. Okay yeah that sounds wild. But that's literally how the show is made. One person has an idea or an issue or problem ashton. We'll go to trevor and the producers and go. Hey mentally often the people. We need a hug. Nobody's organising the people they could give you a professional and the x. Goes okay. I'll figure out a way to make their funny. You go sit down somewhere and have yourself milk and apple so ashton. So how did you settle on black mental health and clearly the pitch was so good that we actually put it on the show. so what. What is your entry point into this topic. The entry point was actually. I wasn't gonna. I wasn't going to submit that idea at all i had. I had my pat. It was already done. I was at the end of my pack. And i was looking at it and i it was. It was a topic. That's been in my head. And i was gonna topics i was talking about in. I was like if i'm going to submit a packet. I'm going to talk about something. I'm not gonna talk about what everybody is not necessarily what everybody's talking about but i'm gonna put my flavor on it. What is something that is deeply inside of me that i wanna talk about an mental health issues like. Let's say mental health issues. Some had overcome. I think that's something many people everyone in this country faces. Everybody on planet faces a mental health issues. And that was something for me that kind of really help define my adulthood was battling this battling trying to stay mentally healthy..
Speaking to the Senators Behind the Senate Caucus on Black-Jewish Relations
"Last month. Three us senators announced the launch of the bipartisan senate caucus on black jewish relations. I sat down with senators. Jackie rosen of nevada. Tim scott of south carolina and cory booker of new jersey to discuss the mission of the new caucus. Here's a portion of our conversation senators. Welcome thank you. it's good to be with you. You very very much reinvigorating. The black jewish alliance is that was at the bedrock of the civil rights movement. And it's key to combating racism rising anti-semitism both here in america and around the world. And that's why today's announcement is so critical. The three of you have joined us here on the global forum stage to announce the first ever senate caucus on black jewish relations which you share with our audience fees each of you. What you hope to accomplish. During this caucus i would suggest the wisdom to i yielding. Jackie i it sounds good. Well thank you. I appreciate that. And i want to tell you that. I'm so proud to be here with tim and corey because when i went and talked to them about this idea there wasn't a hesitation for a second and i'm just so excited to do this first time it's ever happened in the senate and i just know that we are going to have so many good conversations positive things going forward and we're going to show real leadership in this issue and just very excited to announce this those senators white. Why didn't you hesitate for me. It's been a lifelong journey in many ways. understanding appreciating the parallel tracks that the jewish community in the black community have been on if you think about it from a biblical perspective for centuries of slavery in egypt and you think about the four centuries. African americans were enslaved. There are tracks that are parallel and pain. That creates promise an opportunity. The tragedies that became triumphs. it's a story that continues on and for my life For me it seems. It's just personal in that. By some of my first mentors larry freudenberg. Who helped me become a part of his insurance agency. And then it gave me a piece of the pie and taught me not to work for someone but worked for yourself
Digital Redlining and Why Some People Are Stuck With Slow Internet
"At the digital divide all year today. I want to discuss how today's broadband deployment mirrors illegal mortgage redlining practices for the past. Why would see similar devastating consequences down the line saying this. Is your daily charge here discussed. This problem is team at senior reporter. Sharp ticket welcome sharp. Thanks for having me. So i offer a listeners. What is redlining it's a. It's obviously a long standing. Practice has been around for a while but folks may not necessarily know what it is and the impact it's had writing is kind of a term that we've heard but a lot of people don't necessarily really remember realize what it was so it was a practice by banks in the thirties basically to map neighborhoods in the country. And say this is a good bet for mortgage loan. This is a bad bet And it literally redlined areas that had huge communities of black african americans so it was saying that anybody who lives in these areas are a bad bet Not worth making a home loan and so people who lived in those areas couldn't get home runs they couldn't they couldn't homes. They couldn't get insurance They basically were cut out from this really way to generate wealth and paths that wealth onto future generations. So what we've seen is that you know it's really had huge impacts on the black community in the united states so only about forty two percent of black people in houses versus about two percent of white americans and the medium black household only holds about one eighth the wealth of a white household and then also in these neighborhoods there's lower life expense expectancy Higher rates of chronic diseases worse impacts from covid nineteen. So it's really just something that you know. It happened in the thirties and the forties is kind of its heyday But it still having implications. Today

Rep. Byron Donalds Destroys CNN's Brianna Keilar for Devaluing His Conservative Views, Merits
"Hapless CNN hose it Brianna Keeler. It's trying to question a fantastic GOP rep from the West Coast of Florida happens to be black doesn't matter to conservatives. It matters everything to liberals, and she tries to put him in a spot in corner and but she hasn't realized Byron Donald's a lot smarter than her. Check this out. You have defended President Trump. You think that your defense of a person that said things like that might be incongruent with the mission of the CBC? First of all whatever the president said in the past has nothing to do with this discussion at all. I think Well, you defend you've defended you've defended. Don't cut me off. I didn't have not cut you off in his interview, Please do not do that to me. Thank you As a black man in America. I'm allowed to have my own thoughts on who I choose to support who I choose not to support. I think that it's important whether you're talking about the Congressional Black Caucus or the Florida State Legislative Black Caucus or the National Caucus of State black legislators organizations. I have been a part of in the past. My support of President Trump has been consistent, but at the same time I've had the ability to advocate for issues, ideas proposals. And funding that have helped the black community in my state. You're talking to somebody who my first three years in college was at Florida A and M and Hbcu. So whether my support my support for President Trump. Whether it's for or against is irrelevant. That has nothing to do with this discussion. This is whether the ideology of somebody who is conservative is welcome in the Congressional Black Caucus. It's really that simple and so to bring up President Trump to try to make this about him does not matter. It's irrelevant. It has nothing to do with the situation in hand. Yes, Yes. Hold on for the fox nation. Years. This is standing. Jim. If I'm off to my concern, yes Stand to go. Byron Donald's spectacular Nice job. I'm here alone in the studio. If we had a peanut gallery in the studio, they'd be around clapping to love this guy again, folks, the bench in the Republican Party is deep. The bench on the Democrat side is pathetic. It's

Why Black Entrepreneurship Surged During the Pandemic
"Is of course the one year anniversary of the murder of floyd in a year of protests and reckoning there have been signs of hope even during a pandemic that hit black americans particularly hard and closed many black owned businesses new data suggests that people in black communities started new businesses over the last year in cities like new york and atlanta the study from the national bureau of economic research says. Black americans were more likely than white americans to take steps toward entrepreneurship. during the pandemic marketplace's euler has more on. Why so the study found that. After a relief package is passed last year. There was a big surge in registered business formations in the following weeks. Catherine facia teaches business at boston university and helped write the study. She says that's despite the cares. Act not directly infusing. Any money into new businesses are passed not to pat is a lot of start up formation so it was very interesting for us to see that cares out had that ripple of fat another reason for the surgeon. Black entrepreneurship could be the americans. Now have a better understanding of historic inequality or he goes. Mom is an assistant professor of management at columbia university and a co author of the study. There's being clear intends in banks and government to make sure all the financial reports out this year. Which is wachner hurts. And andre perry says that speaks to a bigger lesson to be learned from this study about access to capital. He's a senior fellow at the brookings institution.

"black community" Discussed on Coffee Podcast by Cat & Cloud
"Like what do you want to see more of in specialty coffee from kind of from the perspective of everything. We talked about your. I think this person to lighten. I think i've kind of figured out my answering. If i i'm not gonna lila's a weird question but i think for me. The the the thing that has rang the most true is to be. I think the question is just how can in specialty coffee shops be more inviting blacks or happens especially coffee. Bean were fighting to the black community and I try not to speak for indigenous communities as in communities communities to community. Because that's that's not. I don't want to speak for people who haven't lived that experience and the experts from us communities who is not But i can't speak for the black community. And i think for us. The solution is not necessarily into about more ways to invite us in book more ways to actually acknowledge that you're already in something that is blend and so there's multiple levels. The first level is most shops are in black or latino neighborhoods. You know a lot of the new coffee shops that are opening Away ones are engine defied neighborhood. So i think acknowledging the fact that you are actually injuring if the us cotton shop. You're answering a black community. You're answering to a community of people and businesses and churches and schools. And so i think by actually seeking to actually be an inauthentic member of that community whose integrated in not simply just there kind of pretending nichirei in a best native soon wonderland I think is the is the first step in. I think that if you answer it as a person who respects and values the assets community has that you will see that you actually have. An opportunity did as a member as a neighbor to be offer your assets in collaboration with asset already exist. I think that keeps happening. One and keeps up. Poverty mindset happening whereas i all the poor blacks and they need help. I think it keeps you kind of like the same union talented out. And then i think to it keeps from a really negative view of the neighborhood setting in which is the only crime. There's only poverty is only five business Why those things may be present. There are also a lot of really beautiful things present. I think if you as a community member seeking to find in value the assets. I going to the restaurants into neighborhoods partnering with bakeries that already exists. Even if they're not you know lake petite clip or whatever. The coup hazard bakery is partnering with the local donut shop nor partnering with businesses that exist. They're partnering with schools name. I think if you partner is a member. I just seeking the going to the restaurants that are nebulous enjoying them patronage. Going to if you're a person of faith attending the churches that are in that neighborhood religious houses that are they're thinking about the schools that are knows neighborhood. Educators already enrolled like. Would you consider sending your children to If not why not. Are you willing to be a part of changing the reasons why you would be comfortable. You want your business here. But you don't want your kids. I mean i think in that regard to it being gives you opportunity as you're engaging him to build relationships and to say as you're a part of the conversation was saying yeah like the kids don't have anywhere to go after school but oh we're actually looking stein. The coffee shop in the neighborhood. How can we help with that. You know what i mean. That's a way more I think a way more integrated solution to the problem And when you're having those conversations with kids the conference shot or with maybe at the local schooling and people wanna look. There's like you know a career day and they want businesses to come in and talk to kids about career opportunities. You can talk about the career paths but that only happens if you have a relationship with the school you know if you have a relationship with the people at the school are the charges doing and drive the head guys you come set of baba give away free espresso for you. The stop the violence mark like a lot of black churches have these white margins where people just not white and they marched to violence in our neighborhoods. Which is ironically thing that a lot of people don't know in they'd bring up. Why people that we actually talked about timely. Y'all are over here. So he's one of those. Many instances where people i tried to improve the community like people would love a cup of coffee and coffee shops could very easily as you want to donate coffee sale coffee in here. We wanna partner with his wanna partner with the school when a partner with his business is a restaurant that has really amazing soul food. You know what. I mean my be you can start catering from them or you know. Find a way to partner with people. can you know. Maybe you offer your coffees for their Hey have you ever tried the his cool coffee grown in africa. You know what i mean like. you might really enjoyed. This is a lot like black history month events. That happen where people talk about black history by your your local coffee shop could be a huge club to talk about black history costume but that never happens. I think because most shops are only in the neighborhood for what they can get And what they can bring into the neighborhood as far as business is concerned and not and for what they can get from the neighborhood. As far as assets of businesses that are already there and when they can learn in participating with was there so i think bet that revived. A lot of shops are missing out. Then what happens is like you know years and years and years of a shopping in the neighborhood of being this kind of silo in the community. That doesn't really interact with the community. It's me doesn't really interact with him. Then all of the sudden you know they have trying to figure out well. Wait. what can we do about. Racism like is really late in your existence. China start building a relationship. 'cause one thing about neighbors you know the best time to meet your neighbors is right when you read us live next to somebody for like fifteen years. You never said a wire. Tom like it's going to be weird trying to start sixteen but it is. You'd think if any advice for people who are starting shops like seek to really partner engage survey the neighborhood before you open so when their knees pop up you're able to digitally be a part of the solution to those needs. And when they are benefit neighborhood is experiencing The local artists. Who's working on the mix tape. I'll while we yeah the music neither every it. Would you ever wanna perform. You know what i mean. Things like that are ways. You can start to benefit from a lot of those things. Tooling celebrate the neighborhood to celebrate. It seems like just like basically be a member of the community. Like don't just talent isn't there and just yet have that be your only exposure to the community like actually participate in it and i think the other pieces as you are educating your patrons because coffeeshops specifically baristas education. I learned everything. I know about that. Went from really doe baristas in memphis I had great experiences on my coffee shops..

"What's up y'all welcome to the cat and cloud. Podcasts names. alex. If you don't know me i am one of the employees owners here. Cat and cloud also run our marketing and partner program departments. I've been cutting cloud since we opened our first retail store back in twenty sixteen. So it's been about four years so unless you've been living under a rock you know that america's been undergoing sort of a racial reckoning as a lot of people are calling it and we can cloud have been trying to educate ourselves to just better understand how we fit into all this stuff one area in which we're looking to be more inclusive is on this very podcast so i am going to be launching a new kind of recurring feature on our podcast where we interview coffee professionals that are part of communities that are under represented in coffee. So we're gonna talk about racism and other forms of discrimination but not all the time we'll also talk about whatever that person is super excited about you know whatever they're working on whatever they're hyped on an important thing to note. I will present make mistakes in this process. I will say something that is wrong or ignorant or stupid and if you feel comfortable doing so i invite you to reach out to me. Send me an email. I'll put it in the show notes and just let me know that i made a mistake. You totally don't have to do this. I will be continuing to educate myself and critiquing these things with a group of people that i trust but yeah feel free to reach out. I'm down to chat was dude. So we're gonna kick off this new approach to the podcast with an interview that i did with bartholomew jones of coffee black i learned about him on spread back in june and just get really sucked into the work that he's doing with coffee black and i i just think he's an amazing human and i'm superstar talked to him and bring this interview with him to you in this episode. We're going to talk about a ton of different elements of racism that are deeply ingrained in the coffee industry. Things like building generational wealth the colonial history of coffee the problems with direct trade. And how we buy coffee. Ross about the representation of black people in coffee and gentrification so without further ado. Let's get into this thing. Here's our interview with new jones. What's up y'all welcome to the cat and cloud. Podcasts asked my. Name's alex in case. You don't know me superstock for our guest today we've got bartholomew jones and he is the founder of coffee black. Coffee black spelled c. f. f. e. black and a little bit about coffee black there in emerging social enterprise that seeks to bring back the intersection between black history and black coffee going to unpack all this stuff and more in the interview. But i you welcome. And i just wanted to take you to say what up. Thanks for being here and if you could just tell me about your journey that led you to coffee. Yeah man. I got into coffee Exposed to run up kind of a right of passage in our community where to a certain age where you can actually drink coffee. You know how many and your parents finally allow you to drink coffee kind of like a kind of growing up. So that's my that was my exposure. You know they had chart with you. Have the patty sugar and cream and everything to junkie and My dad actually. When i was in high school started to tell me about kenyan coffee which i'm not really sure how he got exposed to that. I know he took like a study abroad tripping college kenya and then he has good friends from california and he's like a whole roaster. He works at our church with my dad south. Yeah got expelled. I never really get into it for the purpose of drinking it until college for the caffeine and then after a couple of all nighters on some will of milk and sugar. Lactose intolerance in nikki. Doing this you know long story short that me. They're really trying to find. Something actually tastes good without a bunch of stuff in it that makes sense without like kind of blew in yup yup totally. I definitely remember like being in college. Like studying super late in. I guess my introduction coffee was kind of similar is like there's like starbucks. Those little lake isolated things that they sell in the glass jar issuer. Bro not very safe for sure. Roku do those awesome yet. Tell me a little bit about coffee. Black what are the kind of things that make up the coffee. Black ecosystem yes. oh blake We're starting to think about it as a team is three different departments so you have Apparel and music in being you have coffee in the rusty end of things. Mba you had indication on which is tied cast and a lot of other information so those are like the three different different lanes that we have and then those three different lanes of push people you know toward this idea of like reimagining reconnecting black people black coffee culture that can look like get that makes sense a couple of different things going on. It's a lot but it is. It's all kind of tied into culture making is essentially what we're trying to do. It's beautiful is it. Just you in the business or do you have like a couple of other people. No i think. I ended up being a fall guy So is definitely my wife and not a created together and You know she was. We were both working at the tom. Izzo was kinda my passion project as she would do. A lot of our graphic design She's actually walking by right now. She said hey. Jude design and Different mayor we started pulling in muhammad kenny. Kenny baker. who is the owner of ethnos coffee so he started doing our roasting for us on the musical to you know we have a lot of collaborative work with from these as like matt. Mejia's eighty three beat to musicians producers and songwriters like xm. You know one of my collaborators house as name is milan cradle. Especially my favorite rapper. So we work with him and his family on projects and then we also on the apparel tip. My younger brother has taken over. Doing all of our carol racers named julian henderson. He's also getting barista training. As my mother-in-law alydar packaging fulfillment. My brother's wife does customer service. And then i got a couple of guys in the community help us will pop up so it's kind of like a community family effort you know. That's amazing it's like a family family business. Yeah this goal you know. I think that like family businesses At least in our community are becoming more and more scarce you know. Most people are employed in unhappily employed for the most part of Being able to build something where family can have some some equity to pass down for the next couple of generations. I think is something that all of us are really in. I think in the black community generational wealth is kind of like. It's been a topical conversation for you know the last ten years inside. I think that that that ultimately looks like family businesses. You know what i mean. Yeah yeah thomas along shortest Totally that makes sense. Yeah tell me. More about like pele intergenerational wealth concept because like yeah i guess It's something that i that i feel like. A lot of people aren't aware of that Issue it's funny. I got into this conversation with One of my frequent facebook sparring partners and we use a cool guy. Like i haven't black rainy day because he's always simple we have is is. I think it's good to have people in your life. You don't agree with you. Don't wanna live at knbr south and he genuinely cares about people so we were talking about the protests and everything. That's happened and he was like what's the solution. Nobody's presented a solution and it was at that point that i realized like he was genuinely unaware of like the last four hundred years of solution that the black community has been putting for it and i I made a.

"Here this time. Hello. How are you? Can I help you? Yeah, I'm good. I'm good. What are your thoughts on Trump's platinum plan? Do you think it's a good move politically? And do you think it might help win some of the voters who were may be put off by his opposing black lives matter? This is a great question. So the platinum plan for those who who didn't notice over the past few days is President Trump's plan to say I'm going to do concrete things for the black community, and he's made a point of this. He's already done this. I mean, before the Corona virus and really before the lockdowns, he could say the other Lois Black unemployment history. And all the democratic race mongering and of fearmongering and race. Hustling never amounted to anything as tangible. Is that saying with lowest black unemployment ever I've actually done done right by the black community is pitching. 2016 was vote for me. What have you got to lose? You've been voting with Democrats and they have completely mistreated. You haven't done anything for you vote for me what you had to lose, so the platinum plan has four pillars, opportunity security prosperity. And fairness. This includes I've just pulled up the sheet here. Three million new jobs for the black community, half a million new black owned businesses. Increase capital to black communities by 500 Billion, so basically create incentives for people to lend more money. Add more police to black neighborhoods, which that is a great idea, and that's very popular among black voters. By the way, you know, the Democrats pretend that black people hate the police that is not backed up by pulling. I think it's an 80%, according to recent polls or more of a black voters, giving their opinion say they want the police to remain in their communities. They do not want to defund the police. So I like that the issue with trying to use the government to push new businesses, particularly toward one racial group, or another is one seems little discriminatory. To may to say that we're going to use the force of government to favor one racial group over another. So I don't love that. Also, you just create a lot of room for corruption went when you've got the government funneling money into the private sector like that, So I don't totally love that either. He says that he's gonna work on a second step act this it would be to follow it to the First Step Act, which I've referred to is the jailbreak bill. It's my least favorite thing The president has done so far. I think that the messaging is totally confusing. I don't like that. I think Republicans should be tough on crime. I think it seems pandering and incoherent tea weak on crime Overall, I like it. I like he's doing concrete things for the black community. But I think.

We have a lot of talk nontraditional students who need note takers and they need that face to face to help them not by we need a four computers so that we can teach our own.

Don't just stop to come from the government. It can come just from your house to our house and back to your community, and that's what we have to do is that when you you're looking for hope you looking for help you have to be willing to give. It 'cause. Then once you give your making. Payment in your own as that. And you're taking that accountability and responsibility. So it's something that you gave. But if something it's always free, you're not gonNA, really appreciate that. True. But if you give them and you're saying well the the white people just to why people that in every ethnicity that I see they're taking care of their own. But in the black community, we're looking for other people to take care of us and give us where we feel as our. No what why. Why do you think that is why do you from your perspective? Why do you think that in the black community and I'm saying I agree with you but just enquiring and poking at your perspective? Why do you think that in the black community of the Common Implication is that we must go out to other races. Help versus helping within our own or receiving help within our own race or culture. we were talked to.
