Are We Ready to Let the Network Override the Hierarchy?
"Who's the famed author of the tipping point amongst others has suggested that the future looks pretty bright and one of the reasons he says that is that because he believes we as a society moving away from reliance on hierarchy and becoming more accepting of the network and the that the network is a more effective and more efficient way to get stuff done and it could be right. He cites examples like the black lives matter movement. Compared to say the martin luther king marches the marches will very much structured and hierarchical in nature whereas the black lives matter movement just was that it was a movement. The network took over and the committees that that has been more effective in raising awareness and making changes than the marches. Now there's a bunch of other factors of course the plane to that but it's an interesting point. The other point he makes is the vaccine role in the us could have been very structured and hierarchical it could have been like a military rollout but it wasn't they instead distributed the vaccines to the network to the medical health network around the country and very quickly. A huge bulk of the population got vaccinated. It was very efficient way to do it. So the network one versus the structural the hierarchy in that sense. And if you look at the way a work has changed over the last year or so. A lot of people working from home distributed workplaces. All these things. The hierarchy starts to become less. The hierarchy becomes weakened. And if that's the case the network by default starts to take over and so in your business. Are you ready for the network to take over. Is your business still very hierarchical in nature probably is. I know my knees and a lot of people are comfortable that because that's the way we've done things but in your business both from the way your company is set up and the way you deal with your customers your clients your distributors all of these different aspects of your business. What changes if you rely on the network more than the hierarchy. Are you ready for it. Are you willing to accept it. You might not have a choice. it might come anyway. It's an interesting thought. I'll put a link to. The article was in inc magazine. That also references a presentation. he did. I believe that the adobe summit which you can probably get a link to that video as well so check it

The Difference Between Fierce and Tender Self-Compassion With Author Kristin Neff
"Kristin neff. Thanks for coming back on the show. Thanks for having me dallas. Love talking with you. Yes you are. One of my favorite guests in your work has had a significant impact on me. So it's great. Have you back on the show. So let's talk definition for a second. What is the difference in your mind between fierce self compassion and tender self compassion self compassion. Has i call it. A yin a yang aspect right. So there's a way in which self compassion just allows us to accept ourselves with kindness and warmth. It's more of a gentle nurturing energy. The type of energy apparent might have for their child who in the can screaming their head off but apparent loves that child unconditionally. Accept some as they are. and so. that's part of self compassion wheat heavily. Hold ourselves. we hold our pay more nurturing. More warmer understanding but compassion in the broader sense is about alleviating suffering right that really defines what compassion is concerned with alleviating suffering. And although we may need to accept our cells sometimes. We don't want to accept our behaviors or we don't want to accept a situation we're in that's causing harm and that's where fear self compassion comes in fear. Self compassion is the action oriented side of compassion as opposed to just accepting side we ourselves. Hey this this behavior. Doing it's not working for you. You know you need to change it because it's causing you harm or it might be. Hey i want to encourage you to try this new thing or to reach your goals or motivate change. Because i care about you. And i want you to be happy or in terms of situations it might be a kind of like call mama bear self compassion right that protective side of self compassion and says hey you crossing boundaries is not okay. What you're doing. You're treating me unfairly. So for example. I see the black lives matter. Movement served the metoo movement as self compact fear self compassion movements as people. Rise up. Feel empowered to say. Hey that's not okay. You're harming me so a lot of it is where the compassion is aimed and we need both in order to be healthy and whole.

It has been a year with all the social and political uprisings from black lives matter movement to autism being arrested in protest over leaderships in russia. America hong kong to name but a few there has been a lot to shout about recent me so my question fastest. Has this been exceptionally busy. Time for the guerrilla girls. Actually it has you would think during the pandemic were all working. Virtually not together things would have slowed down but as you know. We have this big art night project launching next week.

Trump's photo-op in front of saint. John's church john moore is a founder of the washington interfaith network representing saint. john's church. his colleagues were helping black lives matter medics when protesters were forcefully cleared out. John told me how he felt when he learned what happened. They at that moment were defined as other and at that moment they were the object of kalisa enforcement being called to get them not to do what otherwise. They're debate. There was no buddy throwing anything around them and then suddenly out of the blue came this delus- of the police. I felt like a gut punch. Even though i'm one of the ones that would not normally have that happen this month. More says people need to educate themselves about discrimination and violence. They may have had the privilege of never experiencing of the art in those communities. We need to be made aware and to think about how to correct it. Karla jay says the lgbtq community needs to do more to help support black causes whether they overlap with the queer community or not. Who is wrestlemania is long known in many communities of color and in the lgbtq community. We have this common cause when the lgbt team movement started to work primarily for the benefit of our own community. That was a huge mistake. We need to uplift and work for all of our neighbors whether or not they are sexually identified in the way we are. We need to ally ourselves with other people we believed in the late sixties and early seventies that. None of us are free until all of us have free victoria.

She's speaking about alicia garza and patrisse cullors two of the three founders of black lives matter our movements have always been intersectional even if our messaging and our policy asks have not been the the folks who set up the intersections have always had to fight off fronts in order to achieve full abrasion. And that's exactly what we're seeing now medical reporter. Liz zibo never covered injuries from rubber bullets. Before this month in the past two weeks she's been talking to protesters doctors and police officers about injuries. From less lethal weapons. She found that three percent of people hit with rubber bullets between nineteen ninety and twenty seventeen died from the injury and based on the date available. Fifteen percent of victims were permanently injured. Rubber bullets is sort of a catchall name for a wide variety of weapons. A lot of rubber bullets or not just rubber. They actually have metal inside. Some of these rounds are called. Sponge tipped rounds or foam rounds again that those names make it sound. Like you're you're hitting someone with a party favor. It does not crazy phone. These things are very hard and what really surprised me. The most when i started looking into this for the first time is that they can kill you. They're even worse than stabbed in the eye as inconceivable as that is or even shot in the eye. What did police instructors say about. How officers are taught to use rubber. Bullets police are told explicitly on the first day of training. Never aim at the head. If you're aiming at the head basically is becoming lethal force. It's no longer a less lethal force. All of the instructors. I talked to said people should never ever ever aim at the head. You should only aim at the legs paramount also. You're not supposed to hit peaceful protesters. What's interesting really is just how often they were used Just recently because really police tell me that cops have been very reluctant to use rubber bullets. There are are similar projectiles amusing that as a catch all term but really cops. Don't use rubber bullets. All that often They certainly use them in enormous numbers over the last two weeks..

"Same time thousands of russians took to the streets to rally in support a political prisoner opposition leader alexei. Navalny navarre only been on a hunger strike for more than three weeks to protest the lack of medical attention in prison reported. Charles maine's joins us now from saint petersburg russia. What did putin say in a state of the nation speech today charles. We started off by saying that he was going to focus on internal affairs in russia. He presented the softer kinder russia. I think what's been making headlines over these past few weeks no mention of navan the or crackdowns but plenty about making russians live better. After what was a tough year for everyone of course across the world with the pandemic it was a bit of a victory lap. For russia's kobe response he touted these various vaccines that russia's developed any promised a lot of additional money to families to children to students improve medical care etc all with an eye towards the fall elections here in russia and boost the chances of pro-kremlin parties which of course the vast majority that are competing there anyway. So he did not address only situation meantime. Thousands of russians were simultaneously on the street protesting. Four navalny how does that square while putin is busy getting ready for an election well. These protests in some ways were chosen. I think because of this contrast so you had vladimir putin kind of pretending like everything was normal while in fact the streets of moscow and saint petersburg where i am right now. We're completely closed down the center. You had tens of thousands of people taking to the streets in this bid to try and gain medical care for alexei navalny. he's been in difficult straits his lawyers and his family say and his doctors say at this point. He's near death. We frankly don't know independently. And i think part of what they're looking to do is get independent doctors that he trusts to the prison to get access to him to say exactly what condition these in. So most of putin's speech was about internal russian affairs as he said. Did he touch on anything involving foreign affairs or the us in particular. Well he did. I mean he touched on towards the end essentially saying that russia had red lines in warning russia's enemies not to cross it.

"African american or spanish and the prevalence of guns in your society. I think that his an enduring problem that must be dealt with ken. Guilty verdicts like this change police culture and as it changes. Are you concerned about possible retaliation from police. I'm not sure change police culture unless it's driven through accountability and the knowledge that people cannot act with impunity. Obviously body worn cameras is one tool in the box. The other is the fact that you do not engage. People with tasers at the first sign of any resistance on. Firearms is the training on the culture. That is so appallingly out of control and from an african american point of view. I mean i've been stopped by the police in los angeles driving in iraq even a foreigner as a person of color. You're scared for your personal safety. And that is something. I have felt nowhere in europe even driving in some of the pot solve east africa where you know. The police do not have a fine reputation for nonviolence. They do not generosity acting the way. The police in the us do tied into that. What about the part of the trial. That surprised a lot of people where police chief. Madeira arredondo testified against Chauvin do you think this could lead to more police chiefs willing to testify against problem officers. What i think it has to. I mean one of the failings of the american system is the fact that there's a wall of silence and tolerance and condoning by senior officers fellow officers senior officers and this gives a signal to the community. This is okay. this is A bad apple no. It's not one of the things. I took issue with the police chief was. He said that the us police are the finest in the world. And that's clearly a nonsense. The police in russia shoot less people in turkey. A frequently shot less people and so countries with a very juke. Human rights record have a farm. That's human rights record when it comes to policing and i cannot be right less than we spoke. You also mentioned concerns about police departments in europe closing ranks about a veil of silence on. That's what you said. Does this verdict influence that. I think it. Can you have to put penalties in place for offices. You simply maintain the right of silence offices in a sense who refuse to give statements. One of the things they've used in the uk which naturally went down badly was the fact that the right of silence should not be absolute jewish. Could be asked to draw an inference of guilt and culpability. If there is no good explanation given where one is reasonably expected. So that may be circumstances where you actually change the burden of proof and make it easier to convict police officers one of the things we have in the uk we we have something called majority verdicts. You don't need to have a unanimous verdict to have a conviction now some would say that that is a danger for civil liberties but we haven't found it. It's very very many cases. Where in a sense you would be impossible to get a unanimous verdict against police misconduct and extra-judicial killings where a majority verdict is actually very very safe nonetheless but would render the systemic justice more likely when wrongdoing comes to light peter. Herbert is a former judge who served on london's metropolitan police authority. He's also part of an independent international commission of experts. Studying police brutality in the us.

"You're with the world where co-production of gbh boston npr x. Yesterday after derek. Chauvin was found guilty in the murder of george floyd minnesota attorney general. Keith ellison the lead prosecutor in this case spoke in front of reporters. He praised the work of his colleagues and the community but also added this. I would not call today's verdict justice however because this implies true restoration but it is accountability. Which is the first step towards justice. This case has raised many questions about race policing and justice for black people in the us questions that our next guest has been following closely. Peter herbert is judge served on london's metropolitan police authority. He's also part of an independent international commission of experts. Studying police brutality in the us. He joins us from zanzibar tanzania. I'm judge herbert. I'd like to start with that. Distinction keith ellison made A second ago you're retired judge. Is this verdict justice. In your opinion how are you saying this. What is justin in as far as the system is concerned blocked in terms of the restoration of life than obviously no nothing will bring back the memory of floyd or his life for the family. And that's in a sense. The greatest sadness is that this is after somebody has been murdered and this is the best that the system can do. To that extent it is system justice on the legal system justice but for the family no and full many thousands and millions of people around the world who saw that killing the inhumanity and the cruelty. That was on. Display will not be forgotten anytime soon. You live in the uk and in kenya. But you're joining us today from tanzania where people watching this verdict or any of the trial in reacting to the verdict where you are the pan. African media have highlighted the fact that there was a young girl sixteen year old teenage girl shot in ohio the day before and so in a sense silently whilst we are relieved that the killer of george floyd has been convicted. We know that this is not solved. America's problem with guns and police violence by any means and in a sense. This is the exception to the rule. The rule is normally that white. Police officers are acquitted. Never charged with killing. People of african origin matches their sandra reality that his life for some time. We'll to that point. I mean george. Floyd was one of many black people who've been victims of police violence in the us. How pivotal is this case. Do you think well it depends upon what the biden administration particula does an congress thousand. The senate does with these police reforms if they drive them through and they increase police accountability in the us than it may have some effect but i think viewed as an outside at one of the pivotal things. I've spent a day training with georgia. Fbi and one of the things that struck me on the video game. Simulations is the expectation that people will be on. And i think unless policing changes its culture and deals with a society where the carrying of five rob firearms is not routine. Then you will continue to see a racial profiling which makes a A polling connection between the white police officers idea of perception of danger and risk the life being always.

"So it's kind of a big deal for him to even reference that he's basically saying you know get ready it's coming. In the ninety s north korea had a pure communist system where citizens got their food from the government that system collapsed and they had to let people fend for themselves buying and selling things and markets. And that really did help today. Those market still exist under heavy scrutiny. But they do exist and that will likely prevent a famine on that scale from happening again. What hope is there on the horizon. I mean any sense that there's pipelines from china will open up. I think so. Marco there are some signs covert is pretty much under control in china There are some signals that that heavy shut down on the north korea. China border can gradually ease up. Also china is much more prosperous than it was in the nineties. It would be very easy for them to step in. If starvation got to the point where the north korean regime started fracturing. They don't want that and then Vaccinations as far as we know. Marco north koreans don't know that vaccinations exist for covid. Nineteen it's mentioned in state media. Yeah they show footage of catastrophic cove in nineteen situations happening around the world. But they don't mention vaccines. There are some vaccines coming to north korea. Just two million from the who. They probably will. I want to put them on the border so they can get border guards there vaccinated and the trade can begin happening again. There was patrick win.

"Have a phone. That's human rights record when it comes to policing kinda be right. You're listening to the world. i'm marco werman. You're with the world today. Leaders in the european union or laying out their vision for how they want to regulate artificial intelligence. They unveiled a landmark proposal. That's been in the works for years. It sets forth rules on how a should be developed and deployed the eu hopes to have global standard on ai regulation but as the world's lydia leader reports. Many say they don't go far enough to preventing the technology from being abused one example of the kind of ai. Technology we're talking about is a police system being deployed here in greece under a so-called smart policing program officers are getting portable facial recognition devices. They will use the devices on the spot in released hopes to identify individuals and aesthetically. You that is with the digital rights organization homo digital us in athens says systems like this are really dangerous. There notoriously inaccurate and could lead to false arrests bias is built into them and they could reinforce racist policing practices and they could be abused like for mass surveillance with its proposal. Today the european commission wants to set some rules around how technologies like this are created and deployed the higher the risk that eight specific use of. Ai may cost our lives stricter. The rule europe's top digital official margaret overstayer said today that under the new proposal systems would be classified into four different categories. On one end you'll have minimal to no risk systems like email filters that flag spam others will be high risk because the decisions they make. Impact people's lives dramatically. We're for example talking about artificial intelligence such filter through candidates application to get the job systems that banks use to determine mortgage eligibility would also fall in this category. The commission wants these technologies to meet certain requirements when they're built and to get special oversight when they're deployed and then there are certain things. The commission wants to prohibit altogether including a it systems that manipulate people's behavior and cause harm. It can be a case where a toy that uses voice assistance to manipulate a child in doing something dangerous. This proposal is not a done deal. I it'll be debated by members of the european parliament. Some of whom are not happy with what was introduced today. Swick bryer is an mvp ep from germany with the greens group. He says some key measures are missing from the proposal. We need clear bam. On biometric and other forms of mass surveillance the commission is proposing banning some facial recognition and other surveillance. But boy and others say there are too many loopholes and exemptions that essentially create a legal basis for the use of these technologies. He says the eu has a chance to set itself apart on a regulation. What matters is not to be the first when it comes to a to be dealing with the best. Eu leaders are trying to take a different approach than the us and china which are both considered a superpowers. The us government has been mostly hands off on regulating ai. At least at the federal level leaving private companies to make decisions the chinese government has backed companies and use their technology to create vast surveillance systems the eu says it wants to take a human centered approach to i think to put democratic values at the core and humans at the core is the right approach. Alexander giza is another member of the european parliament also from germany with the greens. She too has concerns that. The proposal doesn't go far enough to restrict dangerous uses of i but she says she's also thinking about how the technology can be harnessed for good and i think in europe we can be very strong on artificial intelligence applications that promote sustainability that combat climate change. She mentioned ai systems for modeling climate. Change or ones that can be used to manage smart electricity grids. She'll she'll be working to make sure. The regulation promotes this kind of innovation and she hopes the e you can set a path that other countries will follow for the world. I'm lydia mainly due if you ask the government in north korea. How life is there. You typically get a rosy picture of the isolated dictatorship but for north koreans the reality they face right. Now is a food shortage so severe that. Even the country's leader himself can't deny it. Millions of north koreans are going hungry right now and kim jong un is telling his subjects to brace themselves for even more hardship. The world patrick. Win is following the story. What is causing this food shortage in north korea. Patrick well kim jong un himself has cited a few factors and covid nineteen is the really big one. It is true that kovic is really hitting north korea hard not necessarily because millions of people are infected. We actually don't know if anyone is infected there but it's mainly because the regime has had to close its borders to stop any covert from coming in. Because they know they're hospital system cannot handle a pandemic that means food and goods. That should be coming over. The border from china are barely coming at all. And that's really north korea's lifeline. The other big factor. Marco kim jong is blaming. Us sanctions un sanctions. Which really do help choke the life out of the north korean economy and that does contribute to more poverty and hunger so on the ground in north korea. What does this hunger crisis look like. Yeah it's bad it's bad in the city and it's bad for even people who are soldiers because their food rations are less than they should be. But it's really bad as we understand it out in the countryside basically it means people are eating way less than they should and they're eating worse food so i've talked to north korea analysts to say there's been a big shift from rice to corn in north korea if you're eating rice you're doing pretty good high-quality middle-class food add some cabbage soup and you've got dinner. Corn is cheaper less filling less desirable. More like a corn gruel. Situation after corn runs out. Then you're onto eating grass trying to stave off starvation and that actually did happen in the nineteen nineties. Korean history big famine if you talk to people who survived. Did you hear about people boiling tree bark and dead bodies in the street. A famine in north korea is really horrific. And no one should want to see that. Yeah so what is the difference. Between what north korea's facing right now this massive hunger and famine i mean how close are they to what happened in the nineteen nineties. Will kim jong un actually alluded to that previous famine telling north koreans get ready for a quote arduous march..

When is the time to talk about healing on. What will healy involve. I mean do. We really wait for the next generation. Now the same is with us. Black folks we already know something else. That's going to happen by so is mostly about strength resilience to stay in this work. This verdict on derek. Chauvin do think it will change how police treat your community brooklyn center. How how they engage with people in the community. Going forward honestly. I don't think so. I think there were probably a little bit more smarter on how they pull people over in how to murder them. For example there are laws being passed with cell phones. You have your cellphone waste you stuff like that limits people ability to record. What if i'm pulled over in the middle of a highway or control road on someway minnesota and there's no one there because joyce i didn't require that the community record that what is over somewhere where there's no community they add to record them murdering me or my husband or my kid or another community member. What are we going to say as you said. Alfredo you're expecting a new baby in just a few weeks if not days. What are you feeling today about the world in the community. You're bringing this new life into and is today a little different than say what you were feeling a few days ago. Maybe yeah you know it feels like there's another layer off off my shoulders a little bit but i am so worried that maybe my child won't even see tomorrow because i could be pulled over in shot and killed and i you know my husband and i have had this conversation. Sometimes i love it here right. This is home but now that we are expecting a child a question. If this is where i wanna raise my child i sometimes has like she. We probably go back to liberia but there was nothing we can't live in my view we had lifted for years. We both are from there. But this is whole for us but home doesn't see us as part of this whole. This is a conversation that we have trouble over many times years from now. Afraid of when you look back at this moment with your child what will you tell them to help them. Understand what we've been living through and do you talk to them about lessons. You've learned the us or in liberia. What do you tell them. I find myself collecting every article of every black man that have been killed of every black woman that have been killed Verdict in those cases. I don't know why maybe at some point we will have this conversation with a child or children planning on having a few more and maybe we need to show them. This could be you and even though we're planning on raising our children to be strong and vocal nothing. My husband's suggestion was. Let's get through having the baby. Let's full once. Just enjoy the innocence of that child before we think about letting them know what world we brought the main liberian american alfreda daniels draw. Somme is a community organizer in brooklyn center minnesota and the co founder of the black immigrant collective. Thank you very much for speaking with us today. Still ahead this hour more. Global perspectives on american policing. The police in russia shoes less people countries with very dubious human rights record..

Pride Leadership with Dr. Steve Yacovelli
"Is the secret of great leadership engagement as part of that or not but will it and it's a great question. it's funny. I've had a gentleman asked me when i launched my latest book. Pride leadership last summer. Not this past one. But the one pre code i i'd say and the germans said what's the secret leadership i said. There is one really like yes. There is as an if you if you take my three hundred sixty five page book. Boil it down to one page with one word. The key secret to is trust. So if i'm a good leader. And i can foster trust within my team and team doesn't have to be direct reports. It can be those around me. My bosses my clients. Whoever that is if you foster trust your gold. So i said know one word on one page. That's the secret to leadership but police buy my book. Anyway i'm sure there's lots more golden. Well actually since you brought it up. Why don't we. Why don't we go there and tell me a little bit more about the book. Yeah so like. I said technically my third book i with a real publisher which has been exciting different process. But i've been in love in the leadership and diversity inclusion space pretty much my whole career. You said i did. It was it disney. Ibm for a while as internal people who kind of went out on my own in two thousand eight as a full-time gig and worked with some awesome clients but you start to see leaders and leadership pattern for those who are just like rock and roll and be an awesome leaders and the ones who are crashing and burning and not doing so well the little qualitative research nerd in me was kind of just observing and all this stuff gathering that data if you will and then. I'm at a conference a couple years ago and sorting business cards go before session. This woman's next we actually doing the same thing and she's like what do you do. And i said well you diversity change management will. I said how about you. She's like. I'm a publisher mike. You know what. There's a book in my head that needs to come out. She's like let's get that book out. And so jen became was your and it really just got me starting to think about you. Putting these observations that had over the course of my career down in into play. Since i started. Kind of mapping that and then you know not not long after that. I started looking at some of the leaders around me i do a lot of work advocacy work of volunteer work especially for the lgbtq community as well as others just kind of helping foster equity and justice for the quote unquote others in the world. I through the lens because leadership is top of mind. I'm started watching these leaders. Do what it is they do especially the successful ones. And then if you remember that. Tv show from from back when sex in the city always computer. She's like. I couldn't help but wonder and i actually kind of popped in my head. I couldn't have put wonder if as an lgbtq blue person you have an opportunity to exercise leadership differently or in an in a unique way then our street brothers and sisters for example out of the story some competencies i wanted to play with. I would've down to six in this holding up my mouse pad which just happens it here. It's branded with license competencies. So they're authentic authenticity. Courage empathy communication relationships and culture. And so let's talk about empathy for a second. If i'm out gay man in the workplace when we could work that's leading very authentically in a different way. That may be my straight brothers and sisters are doing so. I'm not saying that. Gay leaders are better than others. But i write it. Probably lucia that. There's an opportunity for people to Maybe exercised those those leadership comedies. That everybody really should be focusing. Their energy on the basis of leadership allies. Love it to trust me. I have had that feedback along So it's not just for gays anymore. But it's really went through the looking at these six competencies through that specific. Yeah i think that's great and it really just makes sense because because yeah you have people who are Who fall fall in one of those communities. They really have had challenges. I think in particular i mean. Just you know personally. I mean it's i mean we've seen it earlier this year with the black lives matter movement and and so when you've got sort of you know couple strikes against you you've got to learn how to be able to maneuver in the business world or or your personal life and be able to find ways to have common ground which is something that we need so much of him so many aspects of her life frankly not just not just the business world as well but Well and which. I guess maybe maybe you can speak on. This is then how do i. I would thinking of people who've gone through unique challenges. Whatever it is and this can even be people who have Physical disabilities as well right that. How does one become. How do you kind of come up with fostering resilience especially when you're having to deal with maybe people who don't see either you or who just have a different way of you know just how how the world should work and your different and it's it's such a great question especially now one of the things that i also say is a key to leadership that and it's one of the skills that i don't feel that people leverage it enough is the concept of listening but it's not just you know it's stephen covey great leadership guru. It's listen to understand versus listen to respond and to far too often especially in western society in. Us society we tend to just listen to give our two sets and instead let let's. Let's do that active listening. Actually i talked about that in my my communication chapter is how can you. You could pull the fright of being empathetic through the action of being an effective and active listener. And so i think that's one of the ways that we can start to really see from different perspective. Especially if we're not really in in that frame of mind and i also i also acknowledged that one of the things that i really try to is my my soapbox if you will is is fostering leaders to be more consciously inclusive and so it really does mean getting in into my own head. I tried to reduce some of those those unconscious biases. And maybe maybe over by susanna might have. They're really work on myself. I and i kind of talk about that as i think. In methodology work on me first. And then i can start to what i call. Speak up on behalf of those around me and then really act out meeting look at the broader organization. We're talking we're plays or society. In general what are ways we can foster inclusivity and belonging for everyone and so it. Oh it's only the ultimately does start within my own

Kenya Hunt Discusses Her Book On Womanhood And Belonging In The Age Of Black Girl Magic
"Welcome kenya. Thank you for having me well It's great me. I think that this is a very apt to moment for you to be part of our theme on windows and mirrors because we're such a transition point in our culture in our political situation as well and so many things that have happened. You know have reflected kind of the the cultural history of the intersection of race and gender. Which is what you talk about in your book. So i wanted to start off with just the title of your book and you're behind writing it. What was it that you hoped to achieve the book and then later on can you please define what is black girl magic. I started thinking about this book. When i was on maternity. Leave with my second son in you know. My first maternity leave was a period of great reflection for me. This is also the case with my second and so i really just wanted to really take some time to think through what i was observing in. Also my lived experiences black american woman abroad. I was participating in this moment of heightened visibility for a black woman particularly as an editor. You know i've worked for a range of titles in women's magazines on both sides of the atlantic by you know i was witnessing black women go from milestones milestone magazine cover magazine. Cover like a number of really Incredible an historic feats while. I also Intense discussion with the women. I never network about our lived experiences. And how that was looking. You know the the daily trials and tribulations in the complications of our lives and so i was also thinking about social media and the rise of black girl magic and black excellence and these hashtags. That really became much more than hashtags the became movements in really like Rallying calls for all of us and so on. So i'd i'd say black girl. Magic is more sort the context in a backdrop for the buck. Like really sort of looking at my own lived experience within the context of bat. I wanted to write about my particular truths you know as a black american woman. Living abroad and coming into sort of heightened understanding of lunar sexual In my life. And then i also wanted to invite some women who are either and close friends of mine are women i'd encountered through work are really admired from afar to contribute their stories as well so that you felt quite disparate in nature. How long have you been living overseas So i i moved here just before the obamas were inaugurated prior to that and subsequent to your move to to england. What was your relationship to that term. Black girl magic. And how did it change. I know that the term didn't exist in its current context so to that concept. I guess yeah i mean. I don't think sure black girl. Magic was a known thing prior to my moving here. So i mean really. It's something that i mean. I'll have to fact. Check the day tonight right about it in the book but it really wasn't on a popular on social media the way it is now. I mean so jon morgan. Who's a writer whom i love and admire wrote about the idea of black women being magic in her collection of essays when chicken heads come home to roost and that was published in the late nineties. Early onset believe. But i mean the phrase didn't become anywhere near as popular as it is now until i would say in recent years probably in the last five. Thank you for the past five years. I think it was around two thousand fifteen when it became really popular hashtag Sean thompson was the woman who is widely credited with having popularized it on twitter on. So yeah that set when i first moved here i mean all of these things i mean. I think that's what's so fascinating it all the time that i've been here in the uk as on my move here my time here released runs parallel to the rise in social media. You know like all of it. So i mean that's black twitter. That's the black lives matter movement. That's our dependence addiction to our cell phones like all of these movements that have sprung up out of social media and the iphone. I feel like that all sorted happened in the decade. That i've been here until i think it's been quite a real pivotal decade for black women. A lot of ways you know black women have always existed in. We've always been living our lives and doing incredible working incredible feeds. But i think thanks to. You'd have the power in the tools of social media and the way that we used it to our benefit. I think we've seen her. A real sort of heightened recognition visibility there

Black Lives Matter owes Mike Brown's family money
"Was so shocked to hear this and very disappointed. And i'm i'm hoping you know you would wish that people could work out their problems before bringing it out to the media but this is out there now. My brown is a father. My brown senior talking about the mike brown who was slain by police. Officer darren wilson in ferguson missouri. His father is demanding now. That black lives matters movement. Pay his family twenty million dollars. He and other activists are saying that they made money. Black lives matter. Made money off his son's death and that he and none of the families have received support. Then you would think that they straight right. You would think that the brothers and sisters who've been arrested in ferguson been killed in protests they received nothing and here's their statement at a press conference the other day we all black lives matter. Movement is countered into the limelight. Just forgotten about ferguson. And what kind of movement are we building. We're saying black lives matter. But the free fighters families are being left behind. Were our restitution orients. Where's is building a movement. This is just what people wanna hear. When it comes to black lives matter they want to invalidate. Black lives matter. We're hoping that we can hear from the founders of black lives matter so they can straighten this out. But according to mike brown's father they only received five hundred dollars from black lives matter and they're raising money in his son's name and those families have not received anything governor andrew cuomo of new york.

Probe took to the television to say an apology to the women who are saying that he sexually harassed them and to the citizens of america eight says he won't resign and he says i'm sorry for whatever pain that i caused. I now understand that. I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional. And i in deeply apologize for it is trying to make himself cry right there so they went on to say that he didn't do anything wrong. He said i didn't do anything wrong. I never touched anyone inappropriate. I never touched any mood inappropriately. You don't have touch anybody inappropriately to be inappropriate. See the leaders of this world. This is put a plan out that the leaders of this world have failed us. They get up in front of the television and they try to make you think that there's somebody that they're not but i'm telling all of us right now myself included all of us. We have to have moral superiority leadership. You gotta be moral. You gotta have good manners. You gotta know how to stay away from the lust of the flesh to be a good leader and when you see men fall like this. Don't laugh don't make jokes look in the mirror your own self and think about the things that we personally have to clean up in our own lives so andrew cuomo.

Kelly Loeffler sells stake in WNBA team after clashing with players over Black Lives Matter
"We have exciting news in the wnba. That kelly lafler has exited the building. Bob bub-bubba i feel like we should have celebration. Music will and even better a you. Part of that ownership new ownership group includes montgomery has an actual wnba player. And you know who has a podcast in who is a somebody who's been a real voice on issues equity all summer and beyond you know well into the past tradition in a history of ad. I think that's important because it means that the the voice of anti black lives matter is now being replaced by someone who can fully embody the spirit and direction of the wnba. I could not agree more and the power that the wnba has had. I mean we talk about when we talk about you know leading the movement. The black lives matter movement. We talk so often about the nfl or the nba. But really the wnba. And we've said this before. I mean they started this movement. Back in twenty fifteen in the sports world and You know they basically made raphael warnock. Who's now a us. Senator a player in this when they all wore those warnock shirts i think at that point he was voting. Nine percents Who pulling at nine voting. He was polling at nine percent And he wound up winning. And i think that the power that these women have in the way that they have used their platform for good and for inclusion and equity and making the world. A better place is something. That is such a tonic. To see it what we've gone through the past four years so i i'm thrilled to see it. I'm glad kelly law is out of the wnba. Imagine playing for someone who denies that your skin color that you as a human being matter. I mean she you know she tried to parse it a little bit more subtly than that she was talking about she would talk about the black lives matter organization as opposed to the concept of black lives mattering and i think she did that deliberately so that she could say things like i mean she said some really you know i i would say pretty crazy or just you know in such bad faith things such as that black lives matter doesn't want jesus in the church in you know that's just the tip of the iceberg and it just is so deeply offensive to people who are deeply committed attack but what i love about the wnba an and the way that they inserted themselves into those georgia senate races is that you now have a group of predominantly black women who are somewhat responsible for having a black vice president have to go into the senate to break a tie yet and that is i mean i just. I love the way that that is an expression of power but this is not over in georgia is already passing some legislation to make it more difficult to vote did particularly pinpoint Practices that black communities have used to get out the vote like souls to the polls closing the ability of pulse be open on sundays in the future and kelly law flir is not exiting from politics. She is actually spearheading some of those georgia movements to make voting more difficult for community of Communities of color. And so i you know this is. This is going to be interesting because it's you know this is not the credit should not be rolling here. This is still a very a live issue for georgia and for the rest of the

Even though when you look down you can't see it because of all that potential high cholesterol and inflammation heart. Disease stroke diabetes. You got that big unhealthy gut. But i digress. Because i told you. I wasn't dignifying. That would've response just because you can't see past your own privilege to recognize that in america every other month except february is white. History month doesn't mean black history month is an important okay. The fact that every other month is white history month and we are taught white history from the moment we are able to read in this country is exactly why black history month is important now. Principal kristi cornwell drag. Come on so needs to be asked. If you're going to be joining me. All right. i for instance cardwell. Drake doesn't seem to think that.

We seem the double standards too many times. We know why live get treated like the matter black labs get treated like they don't and we also know if you're not treating black lives like they matter then he makes the all lives matter statement in void unless of course that statement like most things in america isn't inclusive of black people like let's be real with ourselves. The word all means absolutely nothing in this country. I mean they've been promising us liberty and justice for all since one thousand nine hundred forty two. They recognize the pledge for the first time. But do you really think. And nineteen. Forty two okay. Two years scholars say slavery ended civil rights. Act didn't come around until about twenty two years later the you really think when they said all they were talking about what does all really mean in america. Listen man people say our lives matter to deflect from black lives when they say all lives and makes them able to avoid compensation about systemic racism and police violence on the black community. What i want to know is what is the point of principle declaring this the theme for black history month. It's black history month all must don't matter right now okay. No not in the month of february.

They account for less than thirteen percent of the US population but are killed by police at more than twice the rate of white Americans. Those numbers to May seem like there's a definite discrepancy this small population being killed at a higher rate than the majority like that's absolutely there's there's something wrong there I mean like even if you're not big into numbers that doesn't add up. Absolutely and that this is criminal conversation around criminal stuff that you have to also reported. reportings accurate. There's always under reporting all studies and all economic stuff that like with with outside of criminal stuff, there's. Out there that talks about how you know black people are economically disenfranchised I recently that. You know that half of the homeless families in America are black and that's like again, we're only thirteen percent of the nation. How could we make over fifty percent fifty percent or more of all homeless families like we have to look at the systemic racism and the systematic breakdown in this country when it happens to black and brown lives because this is unacceptable and if you I will share rather we will share an image. That's really a heartbreaking actually from NPR, talks about some of the lives that we've lost I mean it's too many actually to just go through it would. Probably, just made me start crying, but we have Eric Garner we have John Crawford, the third Michael Brown Ezell Ford Dante Parker Michelle Cousteau Liqun McDonald George Man Tunisia Anderson Brianna Taylor I mean George Floyd goes on and on and on Sandra Bland. You know this is unacceptable. These were people lot these people's lives mattered they all have family and friends who cared about them and death his final right it's the one certain thing that we have in this world. There's nothing else other than the one thing you know is you're when you're born, you are one minute closer to death. and. So we have a very short time on this earth. It to ourselves to give each other equality. No one is asking for special treatment. People just want equal treatment equal rights to live where they want equal rights to get the jobs that they want equal rights to own property where they want just equality not special treatment just equality and that is not too much to ask for because it's something that needs to be ingrained and embedded in our society. What are we living for? If we can't say an agree to equality what exactly are we here for them because if? We're if we're not okay with that then we're saying borough K with injustice. We're okay with some people, the haves and the have nots and why exactly do black and Brown people deserve to be in the have nots right like what were we going with this guy's end the powers that be have to listen because again, black people make up a minority in this nation..

He said on Sunday covid nineteen patients who would've died two or three months ago or now recovering? Oh well, that's great. The clinical impression I have is that the virus is changing in severity in March and early April. The patterns were completely different. People were coming to the emergency department with a very difficult very difficult to manage illness, and they needed oxygen in ventilation. Some developed pneumonia now in the past four weeks. The picture has improved. That's great I love that. Yeah, because remember. The, big thing CNN is screaming about the infection rate is going up all my gosh, so many cases and all this good stuff.

"I do have a lot of fan cams on my phone, and it was really easy to do and it. It works really well. I like scrolling through the videos. It was like all POPs. That was great. Oh Bt S. actually donated a million dollars to the black lives matter movement last week, which is great because k pop benefits a lot from black culture and black music creators, and it's important for for idols, even if they're in create, step up, and they did and bts. Fans decided to match them Matt. Donation and they managed to do it in twenty four hours. Yes so it was just really nice to see the stand using their ability for mobilization for good. Obviously, it's not the first time bts fans have done a lot of charitable giving in the past, which is why they had the structures in place to do this so quickly obviously like. I don't know marvel fan base could be. Let's dollars like in twenty four hours and have twitter accounts that already existed in charitable organizations already in place, so yeah, you lines are lazier. Just, as an example of a less organized fandom decided, it was just really nice to see to see kind of their unique level of mobilization used for him this week. Speaking of phantoms Oh God. Sorry I've just been ranting this whole. Damn episode, but. Okay I'm GonNa, make this quick, because I, don't want to waste a lot of time on her, because she literally is not worth it, but here's what I have to say about. JK rollings bullshit. If you're one of the richest most privileged women in the world what you don't need to be doing during our current moment of staggering racial injustice is tweeting about how you're a victim because you think Trans Women are women and that's what jk rollings been doing. She published a whole essay of just hateful irresponsible ignorance this week about why she's a victim, and why she thinks that Trans people should never rights and are real, which was just bullshit? You don't need to read it. It's all the stereotypes and all the hateful shit. The people have been spewing for literally decades. What I do recommend looking at is. Daniel Radcliffe posted a really great resp-, not a direct response but I mean. Everyone knew it was a direct response where he just you know validated trans identity is and was like is for you I see you you're valid. He wrote about donating to the Trevor Project which supports lgbtq youths. The glad project had a really great response, and they also spurred a lot of other Harry Potter. CAST members to tweeting about Trans Rights and being like you're you're valid. Transplant are women. So that was really meaningful. That was genuine. We can ignore rolling like she does not matter. But it was nice to see people kind of rallying around that. The other part of this I want to talk about because this category. Who knows what this category is I guess it's celebrity news this week, but in media. K. Rolling when she tweeted out her hateful. Anti Trans Essay used twitter function to her fourteen point five million twitter followers, where you can't respond to the tweet, which is a new function on twitter for better or worse, and I am curious how you guys feel about it, because in my opinion, and if you're inflicting your turf reviews on forty five million people, you should let those people respond. Visible Way, but I do understand why. Twitter made this a thing I mean nobody wants to get ratio, but like slim's ratio ratios healthy. You know sometimes you deserve it honestly right like in this case. But I also like you can ratio anyway like if you click on the tweet, you can see what people are saying in. The quoted RT's like that's a new banks like if somebody has a thousand quote, Re tweets and twenty railway tweets. It's like obviously the talking about her, and it's interesting yet. I might have to re download that godforsaken APP I thought. Well. That's what I'm saying. That's how I got rid of it awhile back, but now there's so many good, maybe I mean I don't know. This guy in this I was like this was some cowardly bullshit from her but I. do understand why it happened. You can still get ratio it. It's just like in a different way on the hunger games train. I've been waiting. Mark Tomorrow appears guys Because she's great and she tweeted a lot of and stuff this week so. Anyway. Like society doesn't need you anymore. Like just go sit on a beach with your literal billions of dollars correct. Yeah in other celebrity news, beyonce as absolutely about to rake it in apparently according to the sun, she's in talks, and like getting close to signing a one hundred million dollar deal with Disney tour gone only three projects. which is so mind blowing monetarily? It's absolutely fucking awesome. One of those project is Black Panther to which India part of the film soundtrack, but apparently the other two projects maybe would be documentaries for Disney. Plus which like I'm I think I'm one of the only people that loved the lion king like the remake another in it, her voice, her speaking voice is like actual just butter like it makes. Calms you can read the look seriously so I want her to i. mean her and Morgan. Freeman have the two best voices in the game. They can just narrate everything going forward. What animal like if beyond say was going to do like the Meghan Markle? Elephant documentary like? To talk about. Wow putting you on the spot any animal in the whole world well. She was greatest Nala. Talk about lions. Yeah is. Reese, Witherspoon, that did the Qube show about Lions Oh God. Lavar you guys. Like it was like Queens of the Sahara or something and. Yeah thank God of.

"black lives matter movement" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"Have. Those faces that was secret weapon. And I I know for some people debate. My seem inconsequential, but you gotta understand. The reason the military generals are open to changing. The names of these bases is the same reason that NASCAR is doing its. They want the military to take a unified stand against racism, and they want to show that the American military stands for all Americans including the millions of minorities who served within its ranks. because. Take just take a second. And imagine being a black soldier. Training at a base that is named after somebody who didn't even think of you as a human being. That isn't just offensive to those soldiers, it's offensive to the confederate generals to. Imagine if they came back, so what was happening at a base that is named after? My God. All of the slaves have guns now. Donald trump isn't the only person WHO's trying to stand in the way of making progress. Because while states like New York, finally passing legislation that tries to stop police violence, those changes are being resisted by a very powerful force. The police unions in fact just listen to the head of the New York police. Union PAT, Lynch lashing out at police reform. They're asking us to pull back. They're asking us to walk away from you. They're asking us to abandon our communities. They're asking me to walk away from where I live. They're asking me to walk away from where I work. They're asking us to walk away from the neighborhoods. That we brought back. And that's what's happening and you know what. We. Don't have a choice. If we put our hands on the criminal. You're going to jail, I'm not being dramatic. That's how bad it is. Okay. With all due respect I think he being dramatic. No policeman is going to jail for touching somebody. This is almost like the police version of those guys during me to remember those guys like so what I can't even smile at a lady in the office anymore I'll just cut my dick off now. We know that's coming next. Nobody is asking the police to abandon their communities. People are asking the police to treat all communities like it is their community. I mean think about the fact that this guy even says we can't even put our hands on a criminal. That's part of the problem all too often in America. Police treat everyone that they come across like a criminal, especially black people and I'm not being dramatic. That's just how it is now for those who don't know. Police Unions fight for their members in the ways that all unions do right. They organized for better pay, and they organize benefits. There are a lot of good things that come from having a police union, but they also protect members in ways that make it virtually impossible to hold bad cops accountable. They set the terms of internal investigations that accused cops stonewall until the department has to give up, and then if a cop is found to be at fault, unions can put limits on the penalties so that even police chiefs who wants to fire the officers who've done something wrong conduit. And on top of all of that, there are even examples of police threatening not to do their jobs. If politicians try to hold them accountable, which I'm sorry is ridiculous. Can you imagine if nurses threatened to let patients die if they're not allowed to steal opioids and sell them on the side, no one except that and so the question is. WHAT CAN AMERICANS DO? If police unions all this powerful? WHAT CAN PEOPLE DO? Well for more on this, I'm joined by our very own union, experts would junior. What's going on how you doing? Man You been I'm I'm as good as I can be, and I'm assuming you've seen that video of Pat. Lynch. You know the head of the New York Police Union. What did you make of the video this? I saw Henry Winkler. Update the microphone doing this thing. Look like Henry Winkler I thought it was a happy days reboot. I was like this is a terrible time to bring back this show also sidebar. If you're a police union in you, vote somebody to be the head of the Police Union. You probably shouldn't have them be named Pat. Lynch also big question Trevor. WHA- arrests of the black people that own this diverse police department. Look at this photo. The lack of fifty year reunion of Lacrosse team. And Roy another problem is that the police unions are now basically showing people what a powerful force there they're standing up against the reforms, and and they're so well organized. Politicians are afraid of them so like the question I have for you. Is there anything that can be done to weaken the influence they have. Seen, the African, you think about it wrong and see here's the thing. Everybody's trying to make the police union weaker. All you need to do is make a stronger union stronger than the Police Union. That's why I propose that all black people come together, and we form a black people. Union is called the National Black Association. We hold up. The NBA. Being another name, the point is is that what's this unionist together? It brings together every black person in the country, and if you're black, you automatically approved opposite of the home long. Okay fine, and what happens once. You have the Black Union. How does that help once will organize? Every year will make America negotiate a new deal with us, and with our strengthen numbers..
