"The Oscar on his behalf. Thank you. And then it just kind of fizzled out and people went on social media and freaked out and got angry and bad and all that stuff. Which I think is wonderful. It's just beautiful. Irony that they had tried to Set up this fabulous woke finish to the Oscars on Lee to get nothing. Nothing. We did get a lecture about the Black Panthers. We'll We'll dig into that a little bit. Later, one of the award winners spending time extolling the virtues of The Black Panther organization and how important they were to him Growing up good for you. Woke is him even extended as I said Michael Pierce. He sent me some wonderful nominations for woke Olympics today and the tweet that Chuck Schumer put out Chuck Schumer has a tweet of himself watching the Oscars. It's a picture of himself, so that means he had to have somebody take the picture. So Chuck is sitting about four inches away from the TV. Like we did. When we were Children. Their mothers would commission moved back from that television. You'll lose your eyesight, but humor is just he's right up against the TV. And he's holding a beer bottle in his hand. And the most bizarre and confusing thing in all of this is that Chuck humor, thanked. Joe Biden. Hey, thanks, Joe Biden. He's watching the Oscars, and he's thanking Joe Biden. Can somebody please explain to me why you would thank Joseph Robinette Biden Junior for the Oscars? It doesn't make any sense at all zero sense. But then even more bizarre, even more strange than the Chuck Schumer picture of Chuck. Drinking a beer is him, saying that it is a plant based beer. Not Chris plant based beer but a plant based beer. I'm sorry. I've been known to have a beer or two in my life. I know Chris has to. I don't think there are anything other than plant based beers. Are there. No, everything is everything comes out of that. Out of the ground that goes into a beer. You got your water, your hops, your barley, your mauled at hell festers in there, and we could just wonderful. No, there's no meat based beer. So a little woke Olympics Award to Chuckie Schumer. We're trying to be woke, but then to thank Joe Biden. What in the wide wide world of sports is Joe Biden have to do With the Oscars. It's just insanity. Mentioned the gentleman who gave us the lecture and the tribute. To the Black Panthers. Best supporting actor when your winner Daniel Cholula. Hey, remembered Fred Hampton in his acceptance speech on to Chairman Fred Hunting, bro, Man, Man. What man? What man, bro man? What a man What a man This also proves why actors need writers. That's your tribute grow, man. What a man man. Yes. The Black Panthers were honored last night and woke us him was on display last night and the other thing that people are talking about. Was the moment where Glenn Close showed that she's a brilliant actress. And she showed us that she knew how to do the dance to the song from a Spike Lee film from about Oh, I don't know, 30 years ago. School days, which had a minor pop hit called Dub, but And they had given Glenn close to short script. And she she had memorized it and delivered it brilliantly, and everybody's all enamored of Glenn Close doing what she's been doing for the last 40 or 50 years. Quite brilliantly, too. I might add. But I think the best moment if we're going to give any kind of a warm moment to anyone, was a best supporting actor winner who happens to be an actress from South Korea who walked on stage to get her award last night and again I didn't watch this. All I did was watch clips, because, frankly, I don't have all that time to be wasting watching all this people. But she walked on stage and she had won an award for best supporting actress award for being in a film that apparently Brad Pitts company paid to produce. And he read the winner and was standing on stage. And she said, Mr Pretty Pit finally like to meet you for.

Looks a may not sure why we haven't delved into this From like a. it's the it's about the black panthers right. and it's about A mole within the black panthers organization working with the federal government in an attempt to keep the black panthers down. Obviously this is a part of history that has been pitched to different sects of our society in different ways. A lot of white people who look at the black panthers as the government did at that point which is as a terrorist organization. Obviously black people didn't feel that way about the black panthers certainly. There were a lot of white people who understood the black panthers in their purposes. well but It's a very What's the word. I'm looking for on sub controvercial.

"From the financial aid. Got bad food okay. Welcome focus not for those who may not know. Let us know a little about yourself. You're from the bay area. I was born in oakland And i went to howard. I went out of Howard to law school in california. I started my career in the da's office in oakland california. And then i was elected the first black woman to be elected a district attorney in the state of california cisco i was there for two terms and then i was elected attorney. General of california. Making me the first woman and the first african american ever elected as an attorney channel to an era to black panthers. Yes influence on you or me. My parents look my sister and i joke. We grew up around by a bunch of adults spent fulltime marching and shouting. Wow justice right so they. My parents actually meant when were active in civil rights movement. My godmother my aunt. Mary was one of the founders of the black studies department at san francisco state which was the first black studies department in the country. So they were active. And they were vocal and Jamaican and civil rights activism surprise. You got inside voice. How trains you to do things like that. What got you into politics because you dig. Go to how. That's a party. School figures gosh into politics. What made you want to say. This is the route. I want to go. You know i grew up in a community of folks. Like i said who are marching and shouting and said you know we yes. There is an important role to play on the outside banging down the door on bended knee trying to change the systems but we also have to be inside the room where decisions are being made. And i ran for district attorney because i wanted to be the one who was making decisions about what we were going to do with criminal justice policy and in fact i wrote a book back in two thousand eight based on my belief about what we need to do to reform the criminal justice system and he. And here's how i think about it. Criminal justice policy. We have been offered a false choice. The choice suggesting that you're you're the soft on crime or your tough on crime instead of asking. Are we smart on crime Right and by that. I mean recognizing that you know the public health model tells us if you want to deal with a health epidemic smartest most effective and cheapest way to deal with it as prevention. I if you're dealing with it in the emergency room or the prison system it's too late and it's too expensive so let's be smart on crime and that means let's be smart in knowing that if we really want to have public safety. Let's prevent crime from happening in the first place which means focusing on communities that we know need more economic support need more pathways to economic health and success. Doing what we need to do to recognize that. There's a direct connection between public education public safety so let's prioritize public education and and instead of just being only concerned about public safety because there's a real connection and it's actually cheaper to focus on educating young people then it is on incarcerating whole communities of people. Yes that's one of the first thing. I saw you do it out extremely impressed with the back on track program. What was that all about. So back on. Track is a program that i started years ago. I focused on the eighteenth through twenty four year old young. You know drug sales offender. And the reason i focused on populations because they're just a lot of them and also focused on population because whether we were at hampton or howard we were in college. We were eighteen through twenty four and we were called college. Kids when you turn eighteen and you're in the system you're considered an adult period regardless of the fact that we know it that's the very phase of life in which we have invested billions of dollars in this world in these places colleges and universities knowing that that's the prime phase of life where you can mold somebody to be a productive and an an an accomplished adult and so i focused on that population also understand that when they pick up that first offense they will be designated a felon for life and so what we did is essentially. I created a program focused on them and basically getting them. Job counseling allowed. The young men are fathers getting them support for what they naturally want to do. Which is parent their children but may not have the skills or the resources we on what to do around housing and it just round and we ended up as a result of doing that and then when they graduate the program dismiss their charges but we also ended up doing is reducing their likelihood of re-offending by a huge percentage. And that was a model of what ended up later by the justice department being designated as a model of innovation and law enforcement in the country. We do it with so many drugs being legalized marijuana being legal. Lots of states and a lot of these kids like you said are in jail for that same legalize crime. Now we need to decriminalize maryland We have a problem with mass incarceration our country and let's be clear. The war on drugs was failing war. It was misdirected in essence. And you know we're now now. More people are understanding when we talk about the opioid epidemic. That when you're talking about substance abuse that's a public health matter that should not be thought of as a criminal justice matter and and so what we need to do is recognize that we got to get people into treatment where that is appropriate but as it relates to incarcerating people for marijuana. I think it it it. It is long overdue that we recognize. We need to change the system or the oakland a.'s. For a minute because you said the black panthers had an influence on you and it's this whole conversation we've been having about. Do we improve relations between police and the communities and black panthers organization that actually policed the police you think that an organization like that could exist now in two thousand eighteen. I think that one of the greatest advances in the fight for civil rights has been the smartphone. Oh okay people will come up to make kamla. What all the sudden is going on with all these cases of police misconduct. What's going on. And i'd look at people. Say you know you sound like a colonist you know right right. They're not but the point being you know what collins do they go to a place. That's been existing that way for thousands of years and because they're seeing it for the first time they think they've discovered so the great thing about the smartphone has been that now it is undeniable. When it happens there is evidence sometimes playing for us in real time as we know it is audio visual and it is highlighting a need to reform the criminal justice system about around recognizing that we need to do a better job of training police officers around bias around use of force around the necessity to de-escalate situation instead of using force as the first option as though it is the only option and more people are now involved in this discussion than ever before because it is not just us was experiencing it now. Everyone is experiencing at least in terms of seeing it happen. And i think this is the this is part of what has has led to the reforms that are starting to take place. But there's still a lot more into on. The panthers remember one of the biggest contributions that the panthers made their breakfast programme. Absolutely they're feeding the community And protecting the community that way we have more with senator.

I'm Dave Davies in for Terry Gross. In 2017. Many were shocked to read of a study that found that more than one in three people in a poor area of Alabama tested positive for traces of hookworm. An intestinal parasite long thought to have been eradicated in the United States. The findings were not a surprise to our guest, Catherine Coleman Flowers. She's an Alabama native who for years worked to bring attention to the problem of people living without sewage treatment. So that human waste collects in their yards and sometimes backs up in plumbing pipes and seeps into their homes. Hookworms Fred's when the larva of the worms penetrate the skin of people walking or playing in soil contaminated with feces. As you'll soon hear. The hookworm study was a direct result of Coleman Flowers, activism for 20 years, she's worked with advocacy organizations, philanthropists, business leaders and elected officials on the issue of basic sanitation. She's testified before Congress and a United Nations panel in Geneva and earlier this year she was awarded a MacArthur Foundation fellowship to continue her work. He's written a new memoir about her life and the battle for universal sanitation. It's called Waste One woman's fight against America's dirty secret. Catherine Coleman. Flowers is the founder of the Center for Rural Enterprise and Environmental Justice. And since 2008 has been the rural development manager at the race in Poverty Initiative of the Equal Justice Initiative, founded by Bryan Stevenson. She joins me from her home in Montgomery, Alabama. Catherine Coleman Flowers. Welcome to Fresh air. Thank you. Thank you for inviting me. You've been active on this issue for a long time and have brought a lot of people philanthropists, reporters elected officials to rural areas to see for themselves. Poor people living with this problem of simply not having sanitary disposal of human waste. I'd like you to describe the experience of just one of these tours and the reaction of those who saw what What you showed. One of the person who's reaction with, I think sums it up was Dr Philip Boston, Dr Austen was to you and special aperture on extreme poverty. And when he was invited to Lance County, it's part of his official tour. He went to see areas where people were living among Tron. Sewage was the one of the homes that we went to. It was a compound a number of mobile homes. They set off a dirt road in one could see the water lines that carry what it into the home going above what looked like a ditch. Full of, well. Sewage and nearby was a was a basketball gold where Children apparently played basketball, and when he saw it, there was there were reporters with us. Um, on his his eyes tour, and one of the reporters asked him. Um, Have you seen this before? And he said, this is uncommon in the developed world. And I thought that they spoke loudly of what I had felt for all of these years that I had seen this and so what? What people would see and you taken so many people to this and observe their shock at what they saw. Was often you know, piece of pipe PCV pipe running from a home or a trailer, too. You know a hole in the backyard and then when you get closer, what do you see? There? When you get closer and you probably see human feces and toilet paper, or whatever was flushed in the toilet that day. On the one place that we went. That was this things out in my mind and said it was full of it was a pitiful roaster, which, as you said, the person have PVC pipe, but there was a lot of lot of ingenuity. Involved in this They PVC pipe was buried underground, and it went to a pit and in that pit again was full of, you know, raw sewage and You could see the eyes of a frog that was embedded in the sewage and was peep peeping out from it and often times depending on the time of the year. And now that the days we have longer warmer seasons Dear Mosquito sometimes congregated on top of this village, right? And those animals will spread this stuff to wherever they go exactly. You grew up in loans County, Alabama. It's an interesting place in the history of the civil rights movement, isn't it? Yes, it's a very interesting place in the history of the civil rights movement. Most people know about loans because of his fight for voting rights in the establishment of the Lands Canning Freedom Organization, which is the original Black Panther Party. And that the Black Panther was chosen because ah lot of the sharecroppers had not been afforded the opportunity to go to school. So they wanted to use a symbol that people could understand. And it also, you know, I think one of the slogans from that time was pulled the till for the Panthers. When they organized their own political party and ran candidates on that party because at that time it was not black people running this candidate's wasn't accepted on either the Republican or the Democratic Party in Louse County. So that is self was Mom was a great accomplishment on the side of sharecroppers, former sharecroppers who had been kicked off property just because they saw the right to vote. And that was the land's county Freedom Party that preceded the Black Panther Organization, right? Yes. Um And it's also this is very on the route of the famous march from Selma to Montgomery that the doctor can lead Yes, most of the seven to my Montgomery Montreux goes to Louse County, Louse County is actually between Selma and Montgomery. You want to describe some of the rural poverty there? What distinguishes life there that brought you back there, You'd moved away and it had done lots of interesting things with your life, But I guess when you and your middle age You came back because you felt like the county needed help. Why didn't need help? Well, I had always been involved, Um, as an activist in Louse County, and even when I Didn't live in accounting. No matter where I was, I would always go back and always stay connected to things that were happening. So when I came home, I was very surprised at what I saw. You know, I grew up in lounge county before we had telephone. So before we had a lot of the services that people take for granted today. And it was very it was striking to me to see that something to change and some things had not. Ah lot of people were living in mobile homes. In a lot of these mobile homes were in serious disrepair because they charged a lot of money for these homes, but the homes were very hard to maintain. And as it got warmer, you know, you could see the mold and mildew on the outside the homes in some cases on the inside the homes, we saw homes that were falling apart where people had to step over boards on the floor. Because the floors were weak. You know the home just were not sustainable. A lot of people that are living in that type of poverty also have food insecurity and because they're no grocery stores and that no access to first food there lots of diabetes, so much diabetes. In fact, that They're in some cases. That bus is that provide Vance to provide transportation for people to go to dialysis two or three times a week. So is that type of stock poverty. I believe in some of these people are working. But they're working in jobs that they're not paying a lot of money..

You know a hole in the backyard and then when you get closer, what do you see? There? When you get closer, you probably see human feces and toilet paper. Whatever was flushed in the toilet that day. The one place that we went. That was this sends out in my mind is that it was full of it was a pitiful Rosa, which, as you said, the person have PVC pipe. But there was a lot of lot of ingenuity does. Involved in this They PVC pipe was very underground and it went to a pit. And in that pit again was full of, you know, wrong sewage, and you could see the eyes of a frog that was embedded in the sewage. And was Pete peeping out from it. And oftentimes, depending on the time of the year, And now that the days we have longer warmer seasons Dear Mosquito sometimes congregated on top of the sewage right and those animals will spread this stuff to wherever they go exactly. You grew up in loans County, Alabama. It's an interesting place in the history of the civil rights movement, isn't it? Yes, it's a very interesting place in the history of the civil rights movement. Most people know about lounge because of his fight for voting rights in the establishment of the Lands Canning Freedom Organization, which was the original Black Panther Party. And that the Black Panther was chosen because ah lot of the sharecroppers had not been afforded the opportunity to go to school. So they wanted to use a symbol that people could understand. And it also, you know, I think one of the slogans from that time was pulled the tail for the Panther. When they organized their own political party and ran candidates on that party because at that time it was not black people running this candidate's wasn't accepted on either the Republican or the Democratic Party. In Lands County, so that itself was more was a great accomplishment on the side of sharecroppers, former sharecroppers who had been kicked off property Just because they sought the right to vote, and that was the Land's County Freedom Party that preceded the Black Panther organization, right. Yes. Um And it's also there's this area on the route of the famous march from Selma to Montgomery that the doctor can lead Yes, most of the civil to Mont Montgomery. Montreux goes to Louse County, Louse County is actually between Selma and Montgomery. You want to describe some of the rural poverty there? What distinguishes life there that brought you back there, You'd moved away and it had done lots of interesting things with your life, But I guess when you're in your middle age You came back because you felt like the county needed help. Why didn't need help? Well, I had always been involved, Um Was an activist in Louse County. And even when I Didn't live in accounting. No matter where I was, I would always go back and always stay connected to things that were happening. So when I came home, I was very surprised at what I saw. Um You know, I grew up in lounge county before we had telephones before we had a lot of the services that people take for granted today. And it was very it was striking to me to see that something to change and some things had not. Ah lot of people were living in mobile homes. In a lot of these mobile homes were in serious disrepair because they charged a lot of money for these homes, but the homes were very hard to maintain..

"Be back recording another episode for you guys I hope you all had a fantastic weekend a productive weekend. I know. My weekend was extremely productive. As we all know, protests are still happening all across the country. And I had the opportunity to participate at the black lives matter protests that was held here in Sacramento, this past Saturday. I marched alongside my. You know my five beautiful black friends and we marched, we chanted. It was one hundred percent peaceful. It was beautiful energy. Everybody was being so nice. People are being so helpful. You know handing out water free water free food to make sure that US protesters ones we're marching were staying hydrated. Because we all know won't not everyone, but if you've ever been to the Sacramento area or you're familiar with California's valley is extremely dry here, so You know it was very nice that there were people there that were just looking out for one. Another was like I, said beautiful energy I am so glad that I went I was pretty pretty hesitant to go just because I mean, we are in the middle of a global health. Condemning still and I was nervous that people weren't going. Going to be wearing the mass, and luckily, every single person I saw was wearing a mask, and there were actually people there who were handing out extra mask including my friend the the sign the she was holding. There was on the back of the side. it said it bread. You know if you need a mask, ask me and so she was handing out free mass so overall beautiful energy beautiful protests most importantly, it was peaceful. I talked to a few ladies there. Who are part of the black lives matter Sacramento. Organization and they said that Saturday's protests was the largest protest I've ever seen in Sacramento within the last twenty years so. I'm just very happy and glad that I was able to be a part of it and voice my concerns and you know just be part of creating change of fighting racial injustices and inequality that still happens to this day in the United States so I'm very glad. I was able to attend and I was also. You know over the weekend educating myself. There are a few documentaries and movies on Netflix. That you guys can watch. Today if you WANNA become more educated on. You know the black experience here in the US. I watched a documentary that was highly recommended. Called I think it was called a thirteenth I think just thirteenth and It speaks about the thirteenth amendment. How there's a loophole in there. I won't get too much into it right now because I want you guys to go see it and it's. About an hour and a half, long documentary and packed with a lot of useful information. Information that I wish I knew long before yesterday, because I barely watched it yesterday and I wish this was taught to me at a very much younger age, so I highly recommend watching the thirteenth in addition watch Malcolm X. I watched the three hour long movie in its long. It's a long movie I did not expect for them of it belonged by was so worth it I learned a law If features Denzel Washington and Angela Bassett and they play out. You Know Malcolm X. His life. How He? became known as. The Great Speaker that he was in the civil rights, movement and to be honest on. What the I didn't know too much about Malcolm X. First Time I heard of his name pop up was beyond say's super bowl performance like in two thousand sixteen, I believe, and that was the first time I heard about like Malcolm X. Black Panther organization all of that so I'm glad that I watched the movie and I after the movie I did more research just to learn more online what he was advocating for the black community and I learned a lot over the weekend, and I little bit of insight of..

"In in these people's free health clinics as well as I mean. They were not the only ones with these. But but I think you have to to draw some parallels there. As just a kind of an ending to the story and I I think that again. This is one of those areas where. I remember one time my grandfather gave me a book called lies. My teachers told me. And, I thought it was a very daring book for my grandfather to give me when I was young. and it was based on the idea that the history. You think you now is not the the truth. There are lots of things that have been filtered especially in this case through the lens of white supremacy, and taught to you as if it is the only truth, and you don't know the whole story, and I think that in that spirit learning more about the Black Panthers Organization was part of what I wanted to do. To do the show the film that I watched in addition to reading, was the Black Panthers Vanguard of the revolution. which if you're interested in learning more about the Black Panther, party I would highly recommend you watch this documentary. There are lots of interviews from some of the key players in the party at the time. to to kind of give you a better understanding of. Not just the organization is an abstract, but the the people who were in it and what they did, and what they were able to accomplish and what their goals were More on an individual personal level I I really highly recommend it. the as the panthers grew and expanded their goals as they were achieving all of these things that. The government was failing to achieve on community levels They got more support from the public at large They began to work with other liberation movements. They began there were international chapters. They spoke out against the Vietnam War It initially was very male movement. It was a very kind of macho, typically male thing, but at its peak, the majority of members would be email, and so even though that was still a struggle at the time there were there were definitely the beginnings of Women's Liberation Within this movement as well females taking some of the more. What you would consider like masculine roles, carrying guns, guarding the Party and men, taking over some more traditionally female roles, feminine roles of like Cooking Breakfast for kids for you definitely saw those beginnings. what would the what would eventually be lead to kind of the fall of the party? in part was largely due to FBI interference J., Edgar Hoover and then eventually Nixon they used something called. They use a counterintelligence program that was called coin. Tell pro and This is something that any of our listeners of color probably already know all about but I. Bet a lot of our white listeners do not know much about and I obviously. Fairly will I in what that is, but I would love a recap for the listeners. So, this counterintelligence program were was basically made up of F.. B. I. Agents Finding ways to dismantle the Black Panther party from the inside because they saw them not necessarily as a violent threat, although they may have said that that it was really a threat to the status quo and a white power. It was a it, they they their ideas were garnering widespread support, and they didn't like that, and so they found a number of ways to vilify the black..

"Chance to dive into in the videos. So we've pulled back the curtain and talk about how we look at new tech behind the scenes on actually making the videos will chat with fellow creators and guests and do mini reviews of pretty much anything with an on button. There's rants it's all on way for him so that sounds interesting to you. You can find us on spotify apple podcasts or anywhere he listen catch over there and try to man and bad drugs man one band that was not allowed to perform at woodstock however was the rolling stones But that was all right with them because they had other plans the rolling stones. We're going to do their own. Us Tour instead. That's cool in November of nineteen sixty nine. The Rolling Stones kicked off their twenty four date. Us Tour a tour widely considered to be nothing less than a rock and roll legend instead of playing shows for small venues and Half Book. Crowds like in their previous tours. The stones were now booking sold out frigging arenas baby who they up their production value using better amplifiers in hiring chipmunk the same guy who rigged the lights woodstock among the same guy. Who did the lights for Woodstock as their lighting designer chipmunk? That guy actually won a Tony. I think for his work at Woodstock. Wow well Tony's we're just for like musicals dude who's to say that woodstock wasn't a musical guys know that The Beatles only did like a couple of tours because they didn't have the amplifier technology to get louder than the screaming. So you couldn't you couldn't hear at their concerts because all the screaming Girl Inc Coin Eru inning the show. We're really flattered but you can't even hear music. These girls really do long stupid haircuts not so not such a great guy out of the public But plastic ono is a great album. Good low expense was spared on this core. They easily sold over one million dollars worth of tickets filling every seat in the house. The house being huge stricken arenas baby something interesting to note. During the second concert of the tour in Oakland one of the first ever live bootleg recordings was recorded of their show. Live over then you'll ever be but journalists in audiences were complaining about the overpriced tickets at a little over three dollars a piece so the stones decided to respond to this criticism by ending their tour with a free concert in San Francisco by the way three dollars back. Dan was on like twenty bucks to them. Which is like a freak and steal. Yeah that was the same thing that kid rock got like commended for was offering twenty dollar tickets for. That was pretty cool him. I'm not a huge fan of the kid rock but I think that's cool. The Rolling Stones Jefferson Airplane and the grateful dead all got together and decided that they wanted to host their very own woodstock for the west coast on man who comes up peace and love dude. I can just feel it. Nothing's GONNA go wrong. Yeah no bears are going to show up. The free concert was supposed to take place at San Jose State University at the practice field as a three day. Concert Festival had recently been held there with over fifty thousand attendees without any issue but the senators management informed the band that they were no longer interested in hosting and other event as they just weren't paying to deal with such a large turnout so after tearing through all the other alternatives the owner of ultimate raceway suggested to the band that the US his space. It's not uncommon for racetracks abuses. A concert venues even today like circuit of the Americas. It over there and Austin is a great concert place. The HOCKENHEIM ring over in Germany heard of that is always a huge show at the Hockenheim ring which I would love to go to. That'd be a me. Can you imagine seeing Hasselhoff at the Hockenheim Ring Dude? That's like a genius. Fave doing a cover of do Haass do Hasselhoff. The concert was set for December. Six thousand nine hundred sixty nine. Nice the hasty. Change OF LOCATION CAUSED ORGANIZATIONAL. Show one of the most critical elements that had to be figured out was the stage location typically. Yeah that's pretty important. Typically plays the stage on a raise platform to create a barrier between the musicians and the fans but ultimately everything was sort of the hobbled together. There wasn't really anyone in command at the event so things on the construction side ended up pretty quickly. Devolving into chaos. One of the biggest design oversights was stage placement like we said instead up high it was placed too low removing most of the barrier between the groups but the bans were going to have to make do as there wasn't any time until the event began people. Climbing up on stage was actually a really big issue at previous concerts. Turns out everyone wanted to grab a piece of Mick Jagger and I can probably guess which peace and it got to the point where some audience members would sometimes have to restrain other audience members to keep them from worming their way up onto the stage. There's a surprising number that what what kind of NARC AUDIENCE. Members are grabbing. Do don't go up there and touch his toes. Oh I fuck it do it. There's a surprising. Number of clips of Mick Jagger dancing his way around fans as they rushed him on stage earlier events. The presence of drugs only increase the multitude of these instances. I think like you know. Collaboration is important on big projects It's good to have everyone kind of giving input on what they think is the best course of action. That's one of the main tenants of donut. But I think one of the places that you don't want very loose leadership is when it comes to venue construction construction of any kind for that matter. Yeah you gotTa have someone who knows the vision of what they WanNa do and is willing to lead and make sure that happens and follows through with it. A tiny stage three feet above the crowd is not gonNa cut it. Yeah I feel you. I agree one hundred. The grateful dead and Jefferson. Airplane came up with a solution to the security issue since the police were not welcome to enter the event as the stones as well as other people in their vicinity had some drug charges against them. They didn't want to risk getting arrested. Jefferson airplane recommended that the stones higher the hells angels to act as event security for five hundred dollars worth of beer and front row seats to the show. The Hells Angels. Would Act as an informal security force to protect the band members from the expected crowd of only fifty thousand people? All the angels were expected to do with sit on the edge of the stage and prevent the quote groundlings from climbing up on the stage. And make sure that no one was You know getting a assaulted or murdered in the audience that was the the wording of it right of their contract. Make sure no one's getting murdered We're going to give you front row seats. No No. We'll give you a beard picture. Known Touches Mick. Jagger's big toe and make sure no one else gets murdered at literally. The only stipulation in your contract just make sure no one gets murdered right. No one gets murdered. Yeah why you keep saying yeah. Yeah yeah no one gets murdered. I don't know what the emphasis has. Yeah no one okay. Not a single person gets murdered. Okay it seems like you're being I don't understand yeah I am. Here's here all right. Let me give really really drunk. And then nobody's GonNa get hurt her. The concert began on Thursday December. Six nineteen sixty nine by the time. The stones arrived to the venue. There's already a foul and toxic mood in the air There's already been one death. The event one fan. Who IS Rolling on LSD DROWNED IN IRRIGATION CANAL. Making his way from his car to the field so not a good start And as soon as their helicopter touchdown an audience member charged the band punching Josh Harden. I hate you that's insane. That is insane. The hippies are just full man. The concert was out of control before it had even begun and frankly they should have called it quits right there. As three hundred thousand people poured into Altamont speedway people were having bad trips and going crazy in the crowd fights breaking out with or without the hells angels. The short setup time meant that the amenities for the crowd were severely lacking as well There was little in regards to food and water as well as toilets They did however have a quote lost children department located behind the stage. In case you lost your kid so yeah there. What the no running water. It was much like woodstock in that way whereas completely unprepared underprepared and You know I think when they said they wanted to have woodstock in the west coast that that was like a monkey's paw curled down you know because they're getting all the bad stuff. None of the good stuff is the same problems that they ran into woodstock too. It's like they had no excuse because they would stock. It already happened. They should have learned from it. Plus it's only fifty thousand people and not four hundred thousand people. Yeah but way too. Many people showed up. You know so. Three hundred thousand three hundred thousand people man. So yeah sixty cents. The exact same thing. That happened yeah. People were high on acid everywhere to the point where they had designated cooldown areas. If you're having a bad trip opium was also very present and so was the dupage itself Mr Pot Pot. People would just sit on busy. Walkways and shout out what kind of drugs they were selling. Some people took this as an opportunity to ask for donations to certain organizations including the Panther Defense Fund which went towards funding. The legal defense of people involved in the Black Panther Organization while they were plenty of people. They're having a good time. What was witnessed was a shocking lack of regard for the entire peace in love aspects that the counterculture movement had been pushing as. I think. This is where we're seeing it. It's just like the the the concepts of lost all meaning at this point and people. Are there just a party. You know as some say that. That's the whole. Yeah that's the whole point of the whole quote Unquote Movement. As soon as Carlos. Santana started his set. A fight broke out on stage that forced him to stop everything until it was resolved soon after guy stripped off all his clothes and tried climbing up on stage with the band. Only to be met by our buddies. The hells angels. The angels were hired to keep Rowdy people off the stage and they came prepared to do just that most notable weapon they came with were weighted. Pull clues a pull. He's not enough. Got Add some weights to it. There's a bad store down the road. No WE GONNA pook US. And they're gonNA be heavier than normal people talking about a baseball bat.

"Sure there are plenty more I I've got zero tolerance for anything that would be deemed racist or racially insensitive I don't think the president Memphis in his comments I so let's let's start from the beginning on this not because the the fire was rapid and it wasn't just liberals it wasn't just Democrats it wasn't just anti trump folks there were a series of Republicans and conservatives and from allies that were not happy with the terminology of lynching in the tweets so what happened it happened this morning at seven fifty two AM and the president tweeted so some day if a Democrat becomes president and the Republicans win the house even by a tiny margin they can't impeach the president without due process or fairness or any legal rights all Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here all lynching but we will win well the problem here for many is that the president's in comparison trying to talk about impeachment and then comparing that two lynchings many people thought that was out of bounds of course an impeachment is well detailed and outlined in the constitution of the United States of America and of course lynchings historically well those are steeped in a very unfortunate history involving Americans and I am sensitive to that fact now as a white guy at fifty three years old my fifty three yes as a white guy can I fully understand what black Americans have gone through over the centuries or even what some black Americans go through today can I fully understand that as a white guy no I can't fully understand but I think I'm more in tune and sensitive than most so I I have a decent grex but I don't think the president meant anything in a extremely derogatory fashion what I have suggested a different word what I have suggested a continuation of old witch hunt war hold sure we are the things that he likes the you're absolutely but of course the term Lynch and lynching it's very much associated with the brutal hanging the murders I mean we're talking absolute murders and zero due process we're talking your Lynch mobs I mean that's where you have it also an associate the term of what happened yeah in the nineteenth century if the early and mid part of the twentieth century and of course with the president using the lynchings term in his tweet it brought out as you can imagine merry many Democrats but also Republicans as well for instance you have the house majority whip it's Jim Clyburn South Carolina and he's a very very influential member of the house of representatives and he said quote I'm a product of the self I know the history of that word this is a war that we ought to be very very careful about using I thought that was a measured response from Jim Clyburn representative Bobby rush of Illinois who founded a chapter of the Black Panther is back in the nineteen sixties Jeez don't get don't get me started on the black Panthers he tweeted that trump should delete the tweet he said you think this impeachment is a lynching what the hell is wrong with you do you know how many people who look like me have been Lynch since the inception of this country by people who look like you delete this tweet I like to go back and talk to Bobby rush about some of the actions and some of the methods as some of the details of the black Panthers organization yeah you know there's there's some very unclean hands there as well Mister rush representative rush so yeah I the truck was a dude with zero filter we get that we know what trump does not have a filter how should the president have a stock again with witch hunt and hoax should he have stuck with another term that Hughes recently that this is a cool attempt bed through impeachment the Democrats are trying to execute a cool should have stayed there you know he's called this bowl I'll be yes he's actually spelled out and even said the word numerous times and rallies yeah yeah you probably should have stuck with that the cadre that container of vocabulary words instead of using the term lynching but I don't think it was intentional I think the president is very frustrated I think the president also adds lighter fuel to the fire on many of an occasion but he's a frustrated man there's no doubt about and as you know all lynching if you look at the definition I mean it's essentially it's a hanging which is performed without a trial without due process many times it's done essentially by I hate groups or terrorist organizations like the KKK or or other groups so I mean that's what I understand the sensitivity on the term I understand the sensitivity of the work week everything in the genre and the scope is very sensitive a couple weeks ago I talked about the Halloween display in New Jersey and a guy had a pirate seen this Halloween pirate scene and that was a dummy it was a mannequin that was being hanged is that a bag over his head and there were people extremely offended thank you that that must represent a black person being hang them the owner of the house in New Jersey southern Jersey said absolutely not I and I've got I wasn't really sensitive to this until people started complaining clearly the president is very vocal about what his thoughts are involving this impeachment process all the talk of impeachment and I was the minority and Republicans in the house of representatives they can't call witnesses because they don't have subpoena power on their own the subpoenas are only issued after full committee votes where the Democrats would prevail listen Alexian have consequences clearly and the Democrats in control of the house of representatives are exercising the fact elections have consequences there's no doubt about so I get the president's frustration here and on top of that at least so far the house committees are holding hearings in private full transcripts have not been released you know they argue that these hearings these seal depositions are tantamount to the discovery phase and so trump side is not entitled or should not be privy to any of this background info gathering at this point so listen there's show good reason a lot of them why the president thinks that this process is unfair and trump doesn't hold back again like I said he has no filter in a literal sense is getting lynched hanged and killed the worst thing getting impeached yes I think the president was just trying to make eight point it was hi herbal Lee the president was being hyperbolic trump was not being either deliberately or accidentally racist in the statement I have no more to say on this you know we have a whole lot GOP leader Kevin McCarthy a very staunch trump backer Kevin McCarthy had some words Lindsey Graham SO boards on the Republican side of things well that's not a milligram a couple calls because the phones are out of control today eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine eight hundred eight zero one eight nine nine nine that's how you get on the program let's hit Waco Texas hello Wacoal ET is Angela euron Schmid welcome hello yes Angela I just wanna make a remark about what these people are trying to do to talk I am sick sick up to my eyebrows with the impeachment and and all these people coming against them all the other ones that have come against them whole call me Brenner clapper are these people going to get away with all the crap they've done to our country during the Obama you're talking about how bad it was for him to use that word lynching well I am mad as hell what about the Hispanic on Hispanic right I wound during the time of the nineteen fifties sixties and seventies we are like makers really tell the truth that's the way they treated us we were separated from school separated from everything we were living out there like that can the dump down the street part of the dump and nobody says nothing we're we're you're supposed to put on a mobile over his mouth as you don't defend himself because nobody's going to step up and say something good about trump anything he says as Wall everything he does as long what about closing the three Stooges close feature where and Darling I think those three old people why don't they retire they need to retire the been there for ages they want power and they want money that's all I see from the Democrats and learn from what angel you you say you're Hispanic right yes yes how old how American Hispanic a lot of native American blood in me now you used a derogatory term for for black people deal yeah I'm I'm sick of it because they never get to talk about us right either the the caller stakes wet bags cover belly you name it we got the name so you were such as water so we coming from because you know the the it's always about black people and what they have to say in court is in poor that and so on you as a Hispanic female are you are you angry with black Americans because you hold a hold on a minute you used the N. word are you sympathetic are you sympathetic no no don't get me wrong I lived my next door neighbors were black my bank no individual black we were all coming in trench together as one Hey they did dreadlocks on me we were living as one I have friends that are black but he makes me mad they are literally like Cory Booker and art I used to work yeah a black against over what have you done to us the Hispanics nothing all they've done is bought more evening goals and and if you know what my daughter I'm guess I'm mad because my daughter was murdered in all nine a thirty eight year old single mom of two murdered by five even legal five the regal beat her to death you're saying women so you're Hispanic you're saying the five illegal Hispanics your daughter no not Hispanic they were black they were from the Sudan and they they beat your daughter to death yes trigger five days to die thirty eight years all with two little boys and we try to keep them in the state of Texas grandparents have all right so they went to the ex husband we have and I'm I'm trying to say that when you use the N. word earlier we just saying that I we we we just saying that out of anger because in then you also said that you you're very close to black people yes I still love the anger because right away the stomp on anything that trump has to say and it's usually the black community that starts to get some so what I'm trying to you racist against black people no no I have friends that are black I have lived with the blacks I know them then not that way not all of them but most of them that are in government I mean as soon as you're done something racial or close to it like inching Manding jump on the bandwagon and they wanna hang him really thank you because of these words that's wrong because all I see trump trying to do is just all but he has increased at least a little bit our our disability learning and has given us a little bit more right and a lot less I only have a few seconds left did they catch the five individuals that beat your daughter to death yes but they won't do anything to them tell me they were not prosecuted no no they weren't it's a cold case hi am I going to pull a little did they catch the guy yes or no they did it well I don't know how it could be a cold case if they call so get some more information back in about news radio WFLA.

"And in that was the fantastic four. I already liked jet Kirby. So my dad was like he likes to Kirby let me give 'em that. And I don't think panther was in that. But at some point I came across a reprint of that story, and I was okay. The black guy whatever. But I was fascinated with the fact that his introduction was well, here's how I'm going to meet the task for I'm gonna kick all of their asses yet by myself just to see if I feel. Like talking to him. I was like, okay. Do wait a stepped up to the money. But then he just became sort of a secondary character in the vendors for a billion years. He was just sort of like from my point of view. He was the silhouette of Batman without being Batman. They wanted a character to kind of look like Batman and this guy. I mean, we can just keep going on this. But the Black Panthers mask used to have his face exposed for brief periods face exposed. I believe that they shifted it to a full face covering. So they could sell the comic in the south. And that he wasn't obviously black. You almost never saw him unmasked. He almost never took that mask off. Even if you got hit by something his skin with never show in the rip or whatever that's not accidental. That's we gotta sell stuff to a very racist south in the sixties and seven wasn't there a period of time when they removed. I know that he was for like one issue. He was the black leopard that. Yes. Try and move it away from being associated with the with the Black Panther organization. But I do know also I think that it was like the his one comic came out that was like the history of two Challah. Also, try to do that to to change his name. Well, the thing to your eight of time modern people think that STAN and Jack. Saw the Black Panthers. And then made the character predates them. Yes. Right. One whole year before there you go. So my feeling my guess is. There was a comic book when both standing Jack were kids that most people don't know about called, all negro comics, only, grow comics, number one only had one issue. There's a whole horrible saga about why? There was only one issue which is its own show. But inside that was a character. Call lion man, who was an African prince who protected his country who had a giant mound of exotic material that people kept trying to come get. And I can't help it think either stand or Jack got exposed to that comic. They're both New York kids. They were not rich. I'm sure they picked up every Renzo five sent one cent comic that they could get their hands on and it probably floated away and win away. And then they pulled some of that up because it's very similar, but it's also not the same. So. Yeah. And so then it went into. Jungle action they had a book called jungle action with nowadays. I don't know that was what? Now, one of one of us is going to have to write that one. That was Don McGregor primarily, and he did a lot of sort of taking on the clan. He was ironically for an African Kenya's been an awful lot of time in the US fighting racial. Is interesting with a lot of superheroes. It's like, oh, these aliens all just hang out here in the United States of America and soda. Yeah. We go to China where most of the beings are. Especially. Yeah. So they did that for a while. He was the feature in jungle action that kept trying to give him a book, and it wouldn't last and all the while while I'm reading comics. He was always second tiered people pretend now that they always were into. But if you were the book would have never died. So that's a lot even you're lying. Right. He was a secondary. He was there to be black. I think primarily he was I wouldn't call them as far as a token because they always wrote him fairly. Well, like, he wasn't a go iron, man. He wasn't the cheerleader. He he came to play..
