He figured out who is audience was and it certainly became the stones audience later. Just you know. He learned from all that, but the physical. It was definitely you know this is like professional baseball football. and. At that standard that was a loss and there was many ws to come, but that was a big forty one to nothing. Beatty I almost think that. Maybe it's a good thing. You guys winter that, too. Total, our in my head was like okay, that's GonNa, make a stronger more determine totally that sort of thing to go through I've never cried before amid like that I mean. It was terrible. It was traumatic. Oh. Actually pretty shocked. It would happen because I didn't. Leave I'm too excited like young corey off. Are. You kidding me over. There was like an amazing format. Beatles stones it. You know the whole thing like this little meet Charlie Watts Watson. Everything was just. But you know well so so someone else and put it to me that This this is like this person's theory on being born in Nineteen fifty eight. At least we're prints that. Even though Prince was technically. A baby boomer. That the audience of baby boomer wasn't his audience that technically he was the older brother, the generation X., so all the kids and the younger siblings of the rolling stone. Our audience would be princes. Chewing audience go, wrote stevie earthworm, wind, and fire rod was where he went. earthward fires audience, obviously with Kavala Ruffalo. They knew how to do that and earthward fire. was that done such incredible Doug? Henning magic also earth, wind and fire really changed everything right, and then then you know it was. It was just crossover smashes, and that opened up. You know US really in a way that we could going, but. The way we did, but obviously the midnight special. There was a lot of TV that didn't go right until Sarah live in. That went right and then all sudden we were.

Jonathan Metzl on how white identity permeates policymaking outside of Washington

"I am Jonathan Kaye. Part and welcome to Cape Up Healthcare in Tennessee guns in Missouri tax tax cuts in Kansas professor. Jonathan Metal at Vanderbilt University focuses on those three areas in his book dying of Whiteness. How the politics six of racial resentment is killing? America's heartland using compelling data and focus groups metal shows how white people are willing to die rather than be connected a two or finance policies. They believe are giving resources to people bayview as undeserving find out more about this important book right now. Jonathan Mental. Thank you very much for being on the PODCAST. Hey It's great to be here. Okay I've been raving about your book for months now and it is really an important book. The name of the book is dying of Whiteness. How the politics of racial resentment is killing? America's heartland it land. And you start off the book by telling the story of Trevor Talk About Trevor sure will basically the the the impetus for the book came from a series of focus groups that Some colleagues of mine and I were doing in kind of rural Tennessee. Where we were talking to medically ill poor White and black Americans about the affordable care act and we just found some very dramatic stories which I recount in the book but I think probably one of the most powerful stories was is one of a man named Trevor who called Trevor in in the book. who was suffering from liver failure and a bunch of other chronic conditions. And he really would have benefited from this was in the year. Twenty eleven at the time. What the what? The affordable care act potentially was offering which was increased access to physicians financial help. Because he was under you know in the facing medical bankruptcy and this was in a focus group and I basically asked You know what you're feeling about the affordable care act. And he told me I realized that I realized that something like the affordable care act might be beneficial for me but I have to tell you. There's no way I'm supporting or signing up for a program that is he put it. Benefits benefits Mexicans and Welfare Queens. That was a quote I heard a lot and basically the the idea was that even if this program might benefit me. I'm not going to support a program. Graham that might also benefit by his estimation kind of undeserving immigrants minorities and the reason that was important was because again. It was a refrain that I heard quite right often that I'm you know we don't we don't want to be part of a program that might not just benefit us but other people and in this case you know. Here's a guy who's he's on. Death's doorstep literally literally on death's doorstep and so part of the jumping off point of the book is how powerful is this idea about kind of what it means to be white in America and this idea that basically weekly to be to be white means to have to block the advance of other groups and in in a way that the call of whiteness because of stories like this where people literally literally traded their lives at rather than sign up for social programs support programs that they felt like might go to benefit other people who were undeserving to the pointed ended the focus groups when you were talking to either all white groups are all black groups who had a colleague who you worked with an African American man who he taught out to all black groups and you talk to the all white groups for obvious reasons but talk about that will we just wanted people to feel comfortable. Obviously Racist Racist Right Marker powerful marker in the south where we're doing are doing our research and so we really wanted to get people's honest opinions About I mean. Obviously I'm a race scholar. So is my colleague Derek Derrick Griffith and so part of the issue as we just we wanted to get the real stuff the real the real responses and so I think part of part of the issue was that but also you know because races such important dividing line in places like Tennessee where we were doing the research we really wanted to see. We really wanted to compare. We asked every Group the same questions and the focus groups were pretty interesting about the first fifteen or twenty minutes of the groups. Were just general questions you know. How do you define health? What do you do to to to to maintain your health and it's interesting that Race really wasn't a factor in those early questions so everybody would joke around and say stuff like you know. I try to keep my weight down around but then I walked by. McDonald's mcrib is on sale for ninety nine cents and everybody would kind of laugh and everybody you know I would. We would all laugh. I mean I personally loved the mcrib awesome. Now go on. I mean I did said Skip Vida But anyway you know so for the first twenty minutes or so when we would ask general questions about health there really were no race race dividers right. And we're also socioeconomic class but we can talk about that later but then about twenty minutes into each group we would ask this question and so who benefits from healthcare reform and. It's important to note that we were doing these interviews in two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. This was a time when Tennessee was really debating. I'm should they should. We expand Medicaid should we create To basically except the affordable care act rejected. That was something very much on people's minds and what we found was when we asked this question who who benefits from healthcare reform the almost to a person the African American men would say things like everybody. Does you know we are society benefit. If more people are insured. Sure not just black people. That's what they would say But really everybody and so this idea that we get from the African American focus groups was was. You know. It's kind of the attitude you want people to have if you're going to create a national healthcare system which is if we get the most people in the system. It benefits the most people when we would ask the groups of particularly lower income white Americans against we got a a range of opinions but one that seemed to dominate was. As I mentioned this idea that basically I don't want to be part of a system where the benefits that could be going to me are going to as they put it undeserving. Immigrants Minorities which tapped into a lot of these things about you know building a wall and keeping people Out and so really. I think that the profound racial difference we found in these groups was really that one group really had a very a very broad idea about Menendez's Monette work at risk. All the things you would want people to have when you're creating health insurance and for for the White Americans we spoke to an you know. Of course I'm a white American myself myself In these groups people people would basically it was the sense of kind of limited resources and privileges are being taken away from me and and and that was important both because it it spoke to an ideology which was just countered to the idea of creating a national health care system it was important because it tapped into historical tensions ends about other times to democratize health. Care you know Johnson and Truman administrations. you know desegregation things like that but it was also important because the ideology the of blocking the affordable care act was one that we didn't just here in the groups that was how the entire state voted. We elected politicians who decided not to expand Medicaid not to create competitive insurance marketplaces. And so in a way that ideology we felt a from a political standpoint was was quite dominant in terms of how the state ultimately voted and decided what to do Well on that larger point of you know the the white focus groups looking at the idea the of their resources going to quote unquote undeserving. People but you also make a point of in here. It's on page one. Seven where you're talking about. President trump and his hammering away at the at the affordable care act that obamacare and you're right trump essentially asked lower income white people to choose less coverage and more suffering over a system that linked them to Mexicans Welfare Queens and to healthier longer lives and it was that that were that verb linked them. The idea of being connected to these people was a was a bridge too far right. I mean it's it was one of the more powerful points and something I couldn't advantage before doing these focus groups but basically the idea I mean think about it. If you're an you know I'm I'm not. I hope people see this. I'm not trying to totally really slam. All the people I interviewed. I feel like there were remarkable stories of bravery just about what it means to stay alive in a part of the country where there's no social safety net. But but I will say that at this idea came came up again and again. which was this kind of particular form of white identity as what I'm holding onto? It's kind of keeping me alive. But what if I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day and I as people that tell me I I live a healthy diet. Things like that and I'm in a network where my good health is dependent on a healthy African American person or Latino person who maybe jogs every day and doesn't smoke you know in a way there's a sense of dependence ends up being in a in a broader social network where my actions are related to other people's actions who it frightens me to be dependent on and so there was. There's all this underlying tension about about what it meant to be in really in a a a healthcare system is a web people are connected and and you're dependent on a certain certain number of people being healthy one got if one person cost ten dollars for just a checkup and one person cost ten thousand dollars because they need a kidney transplant. Supplant it balances out right so in a way your actions are connected to the actions of other people and I think that that anxiety there's an underlying anxiety about what does it mean to be dependent dependent on people who who At least my formulation of Whiteness tells me I'm superior to

A professor at the graduate center of the City University of New York says black face represents a strange mix of envy, fascination, desire and fear. Explain the fear part to me what what are these white performers or these white people afraid of they're afraid of black groups mobs rising up and taking the power minstrel. Stop right there. I'm going to start right there. Because it's amazing to me that. This professor would say that say certain groups in white America are afraid of black groups organizing rising up and taking power when I haven't been in a black group like that yet. Weirdos black groups that they frayed of that, you know, maybe the black Israelites maybe the moors, but the average black people in the average black group looking for corporate sponsorship. Let me keep chose began in the eighteen thirties and white performers used Barkor core later black grease paint. Minstrel see eventually became the most popular form of entertainment in the country. Wow. Menstrual see why actors and actresses wearing shoe polish became the most popular form of entertainment in America. And it was born out of fear. But it also created certain stereotypes, I bet certain stereotypes that are still very very famous as entertainment archetypes today. Yes. Hi, asked Margo, Jefferson, the Pulitzer prize winning critic to look at some images from the new York Public Library shininess of the black against the big white clown's mouth. The over long tail code mocking always gives me the jolt that racist history. Does I'll tell you where we're going up on a break. We'll take a break when I come back. I'll play the rest of the clip, and we'll talk more about it. I wanted to give you guys the history of black face. Not notice. It was born out a fear of black people rising up and taking power also born out of creating a mockery of black life. Man. We got more to talk about.

"King. John. Don't miss the mincing rascals. The weekly podcast. We recorded the studios WGN on Thursdays. We posted Thursday evening, usually around five o'clock, and it has been judged to be the best podcast in the city of Chicago by the listener awards which goes to journalism, and in Chicago, they said the mentioning rascals were the very best and really interested in what will happen with the mincing rascals this week Thursday. You can follow us online. How ever you listen to podcasts. We post them on my Facebook page wgnradiOcom, but Eric having watched more comprehensively the video I suppose says there's no question those kids were awful racist, angry mega headed kids. And I've watched the video for over an hour today. And I don't see it that way at all. I think it's it's too. Isn't it funny that this is? The first time this has happened where we all look at eight video or maybe different videos come away with completely different conclusions. But let me just tell you what happened because I was there. I saw the video. There are three groups. Right. You almost exclusively white kids from Covington Catholic several of whom were wearing the maga- hats. There were a dozen or so native Americans there to honor Vietnam veterans Nathan Phillips group, and then there were five men identifying themselves as black Hebrew Israelites for brevity sake. I'll call them black group the white kids in the Indian the black group was harassing everyone. And anyone they were standing there on the court yard there on the steps, and they were just verbally abusing anybody. That would come by. So they were attacking the Indians that were nearby. I when the black group saw the white kids nearby watching all of this. They challenged the kids to come closer. And as the kids did these instigators said things like these dusty ass cracks.

"Stopped. That you win. The best or whatever you are. Would you do this? When you do this, you master the length of life. So there you go. That's it the street sweeper speech. That's what all of us need to hear. We can all talk about I have a dream, which is great speech. But this one is personally my favorite because we've never here, and this is a white or Hispanic or black pastor today give the same speech, and it would be just as compelling and fantastic. That is who we are to be the best of who God made us to be. And so there we go. With that said now, we go to DC where this and the Lincoln Memorial of feet of Lincoln Memorial where this young man and native American veteran head some sort of a clash supposedly. And it turns out to be a not a clash at all. And you know, one of our commenters on Facebook live just said, you can watch us on the WBZ AP Facebook page live Chris crock show every segment at eight o'clock for segment, and then I share it usually on the Chris krok show Facebook page as well. But said, you know, the story keeps changing. Well, the first story is the only store that matters. Because that's what everybody told us. And that's what all the Democrats media and leftist and that such a just wanted to go the narrative, all my gosh. This white kid hates native Americans and his racist. And he's a Trump supporter with a Maga had on. There you go. That's the story. What's the problem? And then today, we get the full story. And some people are coming out and saying, okay, I am totally wrong. I am sorry. And you know, what's funny, Jamie Lee, Curtis of all people? Can you believe it executive? Chris Jamie, Lee Curtis came out and said I own this. I'm sorry. I was wrong. I assumed and we all need to learn a lesson from this. I know I did. So it's funny though, the the leftists like Anna Navarro on CNN who claim to be a Republican who hate Trump. Called the sky. What did she call Mike a hater something like that or racist? And it was amazing. I honestly was taken aback last night. I think I don't want to quote it because I could be off. I want to say it was one of our local TV stations, the headline and others headlines just says racist that it was a racist. It's like, no Armenia has even shifted the way this comes across by the way that something is not does not appear to be racial, but it's just racist in. We don't know until we know all the facts in this media, which does not allow us to call somebody by their proper gender anymore. They lie for somebody. Who's got a penis? But says it's a woman in there says there are woman say she as if it's true they lie to us. Or just just can continue ally or configuration ally by saying stuff like this racist. It's not it's not racism. The boys story comes out today. And he says in a whole new video comes out with the entire context, which other people it's funny. I if you follow me on Twitter, you'll see on my Twitter feed at Chris crock show, that's at Chris crock show. You'll see I retweeted a bunch of ones that they deleted the media people the leftists they all deleted them. But they didn't apologize. They just delete them. Some are doubling down. You have. What's your name? You have. I'll listen Milano excuse me. Boy, her only celebrity it's not are acting anymore. It's just your professional attacking. But she said without white boys being able to empathize with other people humanity will continue to destroy itself. So white boys they go rip white, boys. Kathy Griffin is saying we need to docks them, which means get their home their address their phone number everything and get it out in the media. So everybody can destroy this young, man. This is a sixteen year old boy now Jimmy the Curtis doesn't know anything about this. But she was able to figure it out right from Los Angeles, California in her multimillion dollar home. She was able to figure it out and she apologized, right? But here's a list of Milano and Kathy Griffin is just filled with hate for what happened to her because of her own actions. So this poor young man is being attacked tremendously today. The boys story comes out now. And he says look man we were there. We were told to be there are five thirty. That's when the buses leaving. I got there at four thirty and. I was greeted by. Were there? We were we were protesting for the what's it called with the school for the rallied life. And then we were told the show for the bus there. We showed up there at the monument, and all of a sudden these black as part of the rally is part of the pro-life rally these black Israelite. What are they some fake black Israelite group that hates Jews and hates gays and hates whites and all sorts of stuff. They started chanting in protesting, Adam calling them crackers and. Just some really nasty words. I got the young man's statements here, bigots racist, white crackers. The F word as in as in gay the F word incest kids, and there was a black kid this black kid. It was there that's part of the school. And they said we're going to harvest your organize. So that we can use them. In other words, it's just so these guys were like so disgusted. They ask their they asked there. The students asked they're chaperoned their adult chaperon, they said, can we chant our school slogan that we do at the school rallies high school rallies, which are acceptable. They're not negative or positive, but they're you know, our school and to counter the the racist. Black people are yelling at him. And he the teacher said, yes. And so they do chanting their slogans to overpower the voice, which is a great lesson, isn't it in how to handle stuff? And so they did they overpowered the black racist people. And they're, hey, and then comes all sudden these native Americans were protesting for indigenous peoples day, which has nothing to do with any of this stuff that these two different parties with air. Force's third party comes in native American and here comes this guy. Who's a self described a Vietnam veteran, former marine and whatever so kind of an activist for indigenous peoples day, and he's banging his drum and he walks up to the kid inches from his face. Banging this drum and singing chanting. That's it. The kid has no idea who this is. He doesn't know if it's part of the black group. Of people to call them, racist and crackers. He's got no idea. What this is this sixty something year old man is in his face. And he won't get out. I know the real truth here. As far as well. I'm gonna I'm gonna tell you what I believe is the real truth here is from from inside of these people's hearts based on what I saw. Now, I could be wrong, but I'm gonna tell you what Chris crock thinks. Usually, I'm right use them. Right. I know why that man was in his face. And I know why that kid was there and there's a little bit of capability in both. But it's primarily with with the elderly man, the native American guy, I want your.
