"So. We stand by communities. We stand by people. We stand by our fellow humans and. Pursuit of justice. So the unity that we have is really a core value that's non about being a savior or not about being superior or more about a core, religious and spiritual. Value around human. Kindness. And Justice, and so partnering with the Black Community that has constantly. been victimized and constantly endured injustices over centuries. Is. Not even a question about shooting do it. It's just part of what we do. And so as a black Jewish person we experience our experienced on antisemitism and racism, right and so. The Black Jewish community is at is really unique. Position where? You know we're we're suffering. Many different levels as black people, and as Jews we endure racism in our Jewish community right anti-black pence is very real, and we experienced that, and that's for you personally as well at is for me, persons well, but many of us do. If you hear the stories across the nation, you'll hear, and you'll see Jews talking about their own personal experiences in our Jewish community around anti blackness around systemic racism I mean. I've been in Atlanta. Fourteen years of actively been looking for work in the Jewish community for. About a five six years. About five years. And no one will hire me. and. You think that's because why I think some of it having with all my degrees and all of my experience and all of that I think you know I think Idiots I. AM different I am black and I'm Jewish and the positions I've been applying for all leadership positions I just they don't hire black people in these positions I mean like it's all about the connections. Is All about who you know in this community they hire and protect. Other White, Jews and Black Jews are typically on the outskirts of that of those connections. If you go and research the Jewish organizations in our community, look at the leadership. When you ever you see an organization in the leadership is predominantly white Then there's a problem there is a structural racism problem. When you only have black people cleaning your floors working in the cafeteria answering your phones doing your security guard work being Jim Coach or basketball coach, attract coach. There is a structural racist problem in your organization, and so even now you look on the board of directors for many of our organizations. There's not one black person, and there is really no excuse, but you know how. Racism works systemic and structural, racism..

which two assailants killed three people before police shot them dead after an hours long shoot out this comes as a new Associated Press database counts more mass killings in two thousand nineteen in any year dating back to at least the nineteen seventies these recent attacks of renewed calls for increased security and the right to be armed and places of worship for more we're joined here in New York by Audrey such song executive director of Jews for racial and economic justice also with us via video stream is reporter Alex young blonde he formerly wrote for the trace and news outlets that covers America's gun violence crisis his recent analysis for Jewish currents is headlined contextualizing the Jersey city shooting and his article for slate is how to neutralize the militia nearly every state has the legal tools to crackdown on paramilitaries why don't they use and we welcome you both to democracy now on Audrey let's begin with you your reaction to what took place in Muncie against the Hasidic community there so clearly were outraged and devastated are and the Jewish community as a whole is is both in mourning and scared and so that's that's very real what what is really powerful about how our communities also responding right now is that we believe that the answers to what is happening is not more policing it's a fairly or not policing as the only only response and so our focus is to build solidarity with other groups targeted by anti semitism to anti semitism is on the rise it is in the water it is it is being fueled by white nationalist administration and it is in it is it is in the water and it is everywhere and it is causing a rise in hate crimes across the board the way it shows up against use is different than the way it shows up against other communities but all communities are targeted by white supremacy and white nationalism and so are our response is to come together and other communities that are targeted how is it different when you explain how it's express yes it's different in in sh simply put it's different in in that anti semitism is a tool that punches up against Jews in that it it portrays Jews as and and positions Jews as as powerful wears a lot of the other impressions that were used to sort of learning about and and teaching about and interrupting punch down that's the sort of like shorthand for saying that it it deems those communities as inferior mostly black and brown communities and that and the white supremacy sort of and capitalism together interlocked in a way that that that needs both of these oppressions to happen simultaneously so that when oppression against marginalized communities black and brown and an immigrant communities is happening they have they leave that sort of anti semitism is used as a lever to shift the blame on to do the scapegoats and so their perpetrators powerful and then and then anger rightful anger about real real problems are unleashed against Jews as opposed to the real sort of sources of those above the oppression of people are struggling to you are a part of and helped to lead a major protest this weekend multi cultural protester explain who was there yes it was I would even bat maybe dared at call it not so much approaches the gatt ritual gathering a public to sort of defiant public gathering of Jews of all backgrounds secular an olds to alter orthodox hi Rainey and how bad Jews alongside Jews who may be observed once a year at and our allies Muslim allies who showed up in force and other bad you know PO see community allies and leaders that we have worked with as an organization G. verges worked across the board at the grassroots groups across the city that they came to show their solidarity and support and so we went to grand army plaza on the eighth night of Hanukkah to to mark that the at closing of this holiday that has been marked by so much violence with within an evening of public ritual hundreds of people gathered it within hours of a call to mobilization and and they came out to to say we are here we're not gonna go underground were gonna stand in solidarity with other targeted communities and that's what's going to keep us safe so African Americans Muslims many people joined you immigrant must land and yes and an African American and and from a lot of grassroots organizations that do a lot of this work with us as Alex you blind I wanted to bring you into this conversation this is new York's it's estimated thirteenth anti semitic incident in three weeks following a shooting at a kosher supermarket in Jersey city and which two assailants killed three people before police shot them dead in an hours long shoot out you wrote specifically about this and talking about contextualizing this respond to this latest attack before we also then talk about Texas and this new report out that hate crimes are up this year higher than at any time in half a century sure so what I see and the the two recent attacks or alter orthodox Jews have in common is that you know they they both seem to have been committed by fairly isolated disturbed people there's not any indication like there is like we've seen in more explicitly white nationalist anti semitic attacks like the the how a synagogue shooting in California or the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting in twenty eighteen that these people you know the perpetrators were in Nash and you know the networks it an online sub culture of really fleshed out anti semitism that now arise to acts of mass violence like this in both cases these appear to be people in both the Jersey city case seven months you case the incident appeared and carried out by people who seem to have been for lack of better words self radicalized or you know not necessarily part of at a lose meant that advocates this kind of behavior that stands in stark contrast to the the white power movement which you know has a kind of a playbook for carrying out these kinds of attacks I wanted to go to the Texas the man who shot and killed two people that Sunday services at a church in the town called white settlement has been identified as T. Thomas Kinnunen him he had a criminal past dating back more than a decade including arrest for assault battery theft his victims identified as Anton Wallace and Richard white the shooter was killed by an arm parishioner Arab state laws adopted since two thousand seventeen authorized armed security details and houses of worship and also allow parishioners to bring their own license concealed weapons to church this is Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton speaking Monday on fox news truck prepared and they are an example of what can be done in and within six seconds they dealt with the issue and saved potentially hundreds of people I hope that other churches around the country will adopt policies like this and we can stop losing so many people in these incidents occur so Alex you're blind if you can respond to the S. and and the AP report this new database that's being compiled on that showing hate crimes increase this year more than any time in half a century sure so it's certainly true that this shooting in Texas could have been much worse if people did not respond so quickly with deadly force and I don't want to denigrate the quick thinking of the current job that the prescription responded by and you know it has to be said that you know that's the the sort of that the end of a lot of a long line and and policy failures the the fact that the suspect in the Texas church shooting I was able to get a gun and all that radius I he had a really extensive list of violent criminal history he had been accused filing for a restraining order by his ex wife of of really disturbing behavior out frequent arsons an emotional abuse of his son who lived in terror of him and yet he was able to get a shot gun and you know that's the the the the burden that is placed on the parishioners who have to come to church armed and a really that the coming to church armed and respond in this way and they only have to do that because they live in a state where the flow of weapons is so poorly controlled you know they is this is it's it's sort of like clay praising you know I I tweeted that it's sort of like a slum lord in the nineteen seventies south Bronx freezing the firefighters you know yes there be it be hating her at Lee but why do they have to respond to these horrible incidents in the first place I wanted to clarify this a P. database this new Associated Press database counts more mass killings in two thousand nineteen than any year dating back to at least the nineteen seventies Audrey Sasan if you can also respond to this issue and how you feel hate crimes need to be dealt with today and in the case of the Mansi attack the machete attack on the Jewish worshippers the lawyer for the alleged attacker on say that says that he is mentally ill that he suffers from schizophrenia yes I I I think that we have to look at hate crimes in a very holistic and comprehensive way people who might be suffering from mental illness in living in a society in which anti semitism and racism and all of these all of these oppressions are mixed in that is a dangerous combination you know clearly we're seeing it now because anti semitism has risen to the surface with this sort of bigoted record rhetoric coming out of the highest offices of the land giving permission in a sense to to those who might be unstable to unleash and so with with our approach and and the approach of grasses community organizations to hate crimes is actually to think about what our preventive and restorative and repair approaches to were part of this coalition of grassroots groups nine groups across the city representing all targeted communities Muslim Jewish L. G. B. T. and beyond who are seeking to gather away to decriminalize sort to it to to reduce our reliance on police which right now is the only answer and I think like Alex was saying what is the source of the issue so you know if you ask someone how of course everyone wants to be safe we all need to be safe and we all need to be able to to not have to look over our shoulders that is everyone's right black communities Jewish communities black Jewish communities where this overlaps and so bring more police into communities of color and where there are also you know largely more white shoes living along side by black people is going to over criminalized continue to pull the over criminalize that that community and we think that that will actually I reduce our state our security and our safety so for heat violence I hate that that with that he found prevention initiative is looking to think about hate crimes from the perspective of what is the root of it and how do we bring issue about which is a Jewish term of repair so so in in acting more restorative justice Moore community control and and bringing a whole other lands to to have funds we don't increase the punishment we want to actually change the paradigm and if you think about it well I want to thank you both for being with us I wanna thank Audrey says song who is the executive director of Jews for racial and economic justice J. fridge analogy a blonde who reports on guns extremism and mass shootings when we come back media legend Pat Mitchell I'm becoming a dangerous woman as she talks about leading activists an artist and political figures from Mary Robinson to ava duvernay Taj and stay with us music class this is democracy now.

"Shootout you wrote specifically about this and talking about contextualising this respond to this latest attack before we also then talk about Texas and this new report out. That hate crimes are up this year Higher than at any time in half a century. Sure so What I see the two recent attacks On Ultra Orthodox Jews having communism you they. They both seemed to have been committed by fairly isolated. Disturbed people There's not an indication like there is like we've seen in Gore explicitly white nationalist Medic attacks like the power synagogue shooting in California Or the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting In two thousand eighteen that these people you know the perpetrators were enmeshed in networks online subculture Really flushed out Antisemitism that valorize D- acts of mass violence like this In both cases these appear to be people in both the Jersey City case and the Muncie case The incidents appear to have been carried out by people who seem to have been for lack of a better word self radicalized Or you know not necessarily part of a movement that advocates is kind of behavior. Behavior that stand in stark contrast to the white power movement which has a kind of a playbook for carrying out these kinds of attacks. I wanted to go to Texas the man who shot and killed two people at Sunday services at Church and the town called White. Settlement has benign dentist teeth Thomas Communion in he had a criminal past dating back to detect kate including arrests for assault battery. Theft is victims. Identify designed Wallace and Richard Richard Wight. The shooter was killed by an armed parishioner. A pair of state laws adopted since two thousand seventeen authorized armed security details at houses houses of worship and also allow prisoners to bring their own license concealed weapons to church. This is Texas Attorney General. Ken Paxton speaking Monday on Fox knees. This church was prepared and they are an example of what can be done. Within six seconds they dealt with the issue and saved potentially hundreds the people I hope that other churches around the country will adopt policies. Like this and we can stop losing somebody. People in these incidences occur so alex you on a few can respond to this. And and the AP report this new database that's being compiled on that showing hate crimes increase this year more than any time in half a century. Sure so it's certainly true that this shooting in Texas could have been much worse. I did not respond so quickly with deadly force and I don't want to denigrate the quick thinking or the courage of the prisoners responded ended by What has to be said that you know? That's the the sort of the the end of a long line of policy failures failures The fact that The suspect in the Texas church shooting was able to get a gun at all outrageous a he had A really extensive list of violent criminal history He had been accused in Filing for a restraining order by ex wife of of really disturbing behavior frequent arsons An emotional oh abusive his son who lived in terror of him And yet he was able to get a shotgun. And you know that's the the the the burden that is placed on the petitioners Who have to come into the church armed early? They have to come into armed and respond in this way. They only have to do that because they live in. A state where the flow of weapons is is so poorly controlled You know they this is it's it's sort of like plate praising you know I I tweeted sort of like a slum Lord in the nineteen seventies South Bronx freezing the firefighters you know yes there you behaving heroically but why do they have to respond to these horrible incidents in the first wjr I wanted to clarify this. AP Database this new Associated Press database counts more mass killings in two thousand nineteen than than any year dating back to at least the nineteen seventies Audrey says if you can also respond to this issue and how do you feel hate crimes need to be dealt with today and in the case of the moncey attack the machete attack on the Jewish worshippers the lawyer for or the alleged attacker. Say That says that he is mentally ill that he suffers from schizophrenia Yes I think that we have to look at hate crimes in a very holistic and comprehensive way people who might be suffering from mental illness in living in a society in which Anti Semitism and racism and all of these All of these oppressions are mixed in. That is a dangerous combination up. Clearly we're seeing seeing it now because anti-semitism has risen to the surface with this sort of bigoted rhetoric coming out of the highest offices of the land giving permission in a sense to to those who might be unstable to unleash and so with with our approach and the approach of graduates community organizations to hate. Crimes is actually to think about what are preventive and restorative and repair Approaches to were part of this coalition of Greenwich groups nine groups across the city representing all targeted communities Muslim Jewish. LGBT and beyond who are seeking together away to decriminalize to to to reduce our reliance on police which right now is the only answer. And I think like Alex was saying what is the source of the issue. So if you ask someone of course everyone wants is to be safe. We all need to be safe and we all need to be able to to not have to look over our shoulders That is everyone's right black communities Jewish communities black Jewish communities where this overlaps overlaps and so bringing more police into communities of color where there are also you know largely more white shoes living alongside black people is is going to over criminalize. Continue to over criminalize that that community and We think that that will actually reduce our our security and our safety fifty so for hate violence. The hate that The he founds prevention initiative is looking to think about hate crimes from the perspective affective of what is the root of it. And how do we bring to shoe. which is a Jewish term of repair? So so an enacting more restorative justice more community control and bringing a whole other lens to havens. We don't WanNA increase the punishment we want to actually change the paradigm. And if we think about it. Well I want to thank you both for being with us. I WANNA thank Audrey Son Who is the executive director of Jews for racial and economic justice? Jay Fridge Alex Yeah Blonde who reports on guns extremism and mass shootings when we comeback media legend Pat Mitchell.
