"The Biden administration is losing a lot of its black staffers at least 21 people of color have left The White House since late last year We'll be taking off soon Political reports blackstaff members who are still on the job say they're not getting a lot of help from their bosses and there's not much of a chance to move up Political White House and Washington Post reporter Daniel lipman joined WTFs demetrian Liz to talk about the administration's losses I talked to three current black White House officials and they said that they weren't getting enough support from their colleagues from mentorship opportunities opportunities for advancement And they felt like they were getting short shrift and one of them said that they even felt invisible in the workplace if you are not able to progress to be a leader in The White House which is you know draws the most talented people from around the country Daniel it's not lost on you or anybody else who follows this closely Joe Biden would not be in The White House if not for black folks Is there an incongruency there between his support for the black cause overall and the treatment of employees within The White House walls I think that he can't force every junior staffer to stay in The White House He's trying to get build back better past And so he's not signing off and promotions or making sure that enough black staffers get them And I think that there is a sense from the staffers I talked to that they really have to live up to the promises that there was not Iowa and New Hampshire that got Biden elected in the democratic primary It was the black voters of South Carolina and they want people to remember that internally you know I should say that I did talk to a number of other current and former black officials and they described very positive experiences in The White House And so with any workplace there's going to be people who like it they dislike it But the sheer numbers of people who are leaving who are black I think says an important story And one more question we only have about 30 seconds left How much of this plays in two conflict between President Biden's team that some analysts refer to as his comfort food people he's known for a long time And vice president Kamala Harris team Well Harris team has since it started been more diverse in terms of more black people on staff and the inner circle of surrounding Biden is largely white and kind of old 70 year old types I don't think this is a point of contention And the Biden administration points to historic people like the first black female president the first black female press secretary So they still have lots of points on the board in terms of making sure that this is the most diverse White House and administration ever Politico and Politico White House in Washington reporter Daniel lipman coming up on WTO boating beaches and pools keeping safety in mind heading into the summer on Kate Ryan It's three 13.

"Hey, thank you, sir. Appreciate you having me on. Well, tell us first about you. Give us some bio, Eli. Well, thank you. So I'm a former navy seal. I spent 13 years in the U.S. Navy. I did 5 deployments. I'm also a small business owner in Tucson area. My wife and I own a company called bottle breacher that was featured on Shark Tank in 2014 and I've got two daughters 14 year old and a ten year old. So I don't know if you know my buddies worked Denver or Dan Crenshaw or a whole bunch of other seals. But I want seals and other combat veterans to go to Congress because I think it's vitally necessary for the Congress to reflect the men and women who are carrying the burden. What made you get into this? Well, honestly, yes, do you know several of those guys? And I'm just really concerned about the direction of our country, sir, this is not something I ever wanted to do, but as somebody who joined the navy, the week after 9 11, this is kind of always been something that's near and dear to me this country. And I just can't watch it be destroyed from within any longer. And so instead of yelling at my TV, I've decided to try and do something about it. So Eli crane, where is the new second district going to run? What cities are in it? So it's the largest geographical district in Arizona. You've got blackstaff. You've got Sedona, you've got a lot of rural areas. It takes up, I think, close to 55% of the state. And it's massive, but it went from an R two district to an R 7 district and Tom o'halloran who currently holds a seat as a three term Democrat is rated as many to be one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country. You can beat him. My network in Arizona begins with the governor and runs down all the way through cap. And I will be there in a couple of weeks. In fact, moderating debates for Senate and governors. So I know that you can win this. But you've got to raise money. What's the website Eli crane? Thank you, sir. The website is Eli for Arizona dot com. That's Eli for Arizona dot com. And we set a Republican fundraising record here, raising over $400,000 in our very first quarter. So we are on the road doing that surf. Now that's a lot of miles that you're used to spending a lot of time I assume in four wheel vehicles, going over that kind of a district. That's a lot of driving Eli. What's the wife think about this? Well, my wife has always been really supportive and this is a very big decision for any family and it was one decision where we both prayed about it. We talked to a lot of our friends about it and we both decided, hey, we want to make sure that our daughters grow up with some freedom and prosperity. And so she's got behind me 100% and we're going to do everything we can to represent this district. Now there are a lot of combat veterans who are running for the first time Eli. What do you think that reflection the country at large? And I'm very happy about this. I couldn't be happier. I think it's a huge tale for the American people that there is hope this isn't something that's coordinated. It's not something where there's some leader who sounded some alarm. I think everybody that has served this country recognizes they feel it in their heart and in their head that something has gone disastrously wrong. And we need to do everything we can to try and fix it. And right now, we all swore an oath to defend this country from foreign and domestic threats. And right now, the biggest threat that we have many major foreign threats right now, the biggest threat right here with is right here within and it's domestic and we're not united. We have some radical leftists and communists and socialists that have gotten into every major institution in our country and it's clear it's evident danger and we need to do everything we can to stop it. So you like crane in terms of what's a new skill set for you? My friends in the seal teams over the years told me everything's about the skill set that you have to as one one is not, et cetera, et cetera. I'm just a civilian. What skill sets are you picking up to run for office that you didn't have before? Well, some of the things that I learned in the seal teams are being able to do more with less being able to build a team. That's something that's so important. You're nothing by yourself on the battlefield. I won't be anything in Congress if I'm not able to form a team. I'm not able to form allies. And you have to be innovative and creative and unconventional. And I think that's one of the best things that special operators are going to bring to this job is being able to think outside the box and be very problem solving very strategic and very creative in how we go about trying to bring forth the change that we want to see. Eli for Arizona dot com and you can also follow him Eli crane AZ on Twitter. I got to say when Bill Bennett was still on when I was in the afternoon, not after he retired. He would always tell audiences don't worry. The people who are fighting the wars are going to eventually end up in Congress. And I think that's what's happening in real time with you, Eli. So good luck, keep coming back. Let us know how we can help, and people can help you at Eli for Arizona dot com. Arizona dot com. Thank you, Eli, cranky, coming back. I'll be back tomorrow America. Thank you Ben. Thank you Adam. Thank you generalissimo. You're not by Bitcoin. The fool's play. But be here tomorrow, and I'll tell you what you should do next on the next few..

"Post is a cacophony today of anti trump lunacy and of course I was at CBS news they say they have confirmed that your gas was used even though the park police said that tear gas was accused the other day they said they found a canister but it was a canister from another nice day they're really not good at telling the truth there being accurate or news gathering gathering facts that's not really their bag and also as water for one of our brilliant colors John I believe it was earlier mentioned to the governor code man the guy with the Klan hood in the black face in Virginia Democrat Ralph Northam is announced that it's going to be removing the statue of Robert E. leave from Richmond Virginia from the monuments monument Avenue site and they said they're gonna put it in storage storage case they want to bring it out later something like that but they say they're going to remove that yeah I'm sure there will be who knows that everything is may have these days also there is an old statue of small stature of a lone Confederate soldier in old town Alexandria Virginia just across the river from Washington DC proper and that this on armed Confederate soldier with his arms crossed looking south turning his back on the north has has been there forever and ever for generations and I'm told that that is going to be removed or has already been removed and of course they remove the statue of Frank Rizzo from down now let me say Robert E. Lee was invited by Republican presidents Abraham Lincoln to head the Union Army that conversation took place at Blair house across from the White House you can still visit and dot and a Robert E. Lee said no and he told like it no in fact I'm headed to Richmond to have the Confederate army headed by Democrats Jefferson Davis C. Republican in Washington in the White House Abraham Lincoln Confederate in Richmond Jefferson Davis and so they're removing a statue of via who is great generally studied military schools around the world not just in the United States for his tactics and so on but the the governor Colin van is says that he's going to remove that statue of the statue of the Confederate soldier and so two more Democrats statues fall they are like the Taliban and blowing up those those idols and all that and also removal of Democrat governor excuse me Democrat mayor Frank Rizzo in Philadelphia because they say the Democrat two time mayor of Philadelphia from the seventies and eighties was a terrible racist and another elected Democrat racist statue being removed their their airbrushing themselves out of history so they can pretend that the party of Lincoln is the real party of racists don't forget to send your check to Planned Parenthood you Democrats out there because that's another funny headline made me laugh out loud Byton now envisions an F. D. R. like presidency after what he wants to be elected four times is that we that we were talking to candidates who issued a revolutionary change shifts as crises mount is there wants to be more and more like FDR I guess that means that I don't know what it is under the press is going to hide his handicap see that they actually have the store a couple weeks ago and I already made fun of it but it's not on the front page of The Washington Post it but somebody else that the posters weeks behind the baby's coming back around for a second taste at the FDR presidency so you know FDR was in a wheelchair at the press hid that from the public for four years for years and years and years because you know they they lie all the time and they conceal things for Democrats and life for them and so they will conceal Joe Biden's in capacity which is mental rather than physical and of course then we're gonna go into the Great Depression when Joe Biden because he's gonna have an FDR like presidency we're gonna have another Great Depression that we gonna have the greatest war in the history of the world the biggest most label world history the world at the World War two under FDR but Joe Biden will it have to be World War seven or something at this point and he's gonna throw a racial group into internment camps that is going to die in office and his successor is going to use nuclear weapons against another country of you know minority people people of color that says so that's that FDR presidency and in a nutshell hi do your IT capacities have depression have a war throw racial group into internment camps Diane office and your successor uses nuclear weapons there it is so Joe Biden's got his plan for the future you could vote for that if you'd like that's what they say that's what they're saying that's what they're saying now the organization across the country missing this Tom cotton you know senator Tom cotton is a is a combat veteran he is a decorated combat veteran as a matter of fact he is a guy who what do you do he went to Harvard Law School I think right now he has joined the military and they said oh you want to be a lawyer in the in the military don't you I said no I want to be an infantry man I and I want to go into combat and and fight for my country that's what that's what I want to do he's a Republican of course he's from Arkansas and he is a smart guy and squared away guy and a and a serious serious guy and he went to Harvard and got his undergrad and then he got his law degree from Harvard and then he joined the army I had a service from what two thousand five to two thousand nine on active duty five oh six if the infantry regiment of the hundred and first airborne a legendary unit and he also served as the third infantry the old guard up at Arlington cemetery and saw he was in Afghanistan he was in a rack bronze star decorated you know a decorated guy parachutists and aerosoles ranger tab he is you know he's a real American and and the news media that hate him for that because there about mostly trans gender I think but what if not most that that that disproportionately large number and they don't serve in the military they don't love their country they hate the military they hate law enforcement and he wrote a he wrote a an op ed for The New York Times and how dare they publish it he did publish it saying send in troops he said to be sent in troops are and and it's it's funny because now the new York times people are very employees there the so called journalists are very very upset and there's an insurrection over the fact that they even published senator cotton's op ed is you know editorial is a opposing page editorial at because it doesn't conform with their views he's saying send in the troops and the military and and there is an insurrection a veritable insurrection of the New York times how dare you publish this piece because they don't believe in free speech these are our journalists and this is a real red flag this is this is a serious problem when our journalists and I pointed out all the time our anti first amendment like McGill a gorilla you know Fred Cuomo at CNN who constantly reaffirms anybody's a moron be that Fordham should call and ask for their law degree back and does see that it really doesn't have a place on national television as a journalist or as as someone that went to law school giving live legal opinions on things what is completely wrong about everything David Brooks is a fake conservative and he is a fake conservative at the New York times they say is a conservative but he's not he says I he tweeted I believe in democracy I believe in a free press I believe in open debate all right I'm with you on all that I love it when my newspaper prints pieces I disagree with it causes me to think that's what he said and all I all agree with him on all of that I agree with about a hundred percent of that however at the New York times this has caused an insurrection and you're you're you're not gonna believe what they're saying about this insurrection they're saying that publishing this piece puts black not white or Asian or Hispanic absolute chore aboriginal New York times employees but just black New York times employees in danger you say it puts people of color in in danger then your time CNN has a terrible story on it New York times staffers rose rose bowl over publication of Tom cotton op ed because they literally do not support opposing views I was raised with a great standard and at every American should be raised with the same standard and it's an it's an American accent I may I may disagree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it now these people will walk out and boycott if anyone's having out what a bunch of snow flake pansy **** cross dressing fake reporters at The New York Times you're supposed to be the lead defenders of the first amendment and we're supposed to be a market place of ideas where we can journalist intellectually over the great issues of our day but no no because these are not liberals these are lefties there's occurs at very important difference in fact they couldn't be more different and the and the the the the standard people staffers at The New York Times expressed dismay dismay Wednesday over the newspaper's decision to publish an op ed written by Republican senator Tom cotton this is not a fair and balanced newspaper this is a corrupt institution and and more broadly the American news media has been so profoundly corrupted by politics that that really are half of what's going on in the street is directly attributable to the corrupt dealings of the American news may I say this as someone who spent seventeen years as a journalist somebody whereas brothers that are journalists to this day someone whose stepfather was a fifty year plus journalist not in a network news organization whose grandfather was a a broadcaster you know generations of this and our news media has completely sold out for the radical left which is as intolerant to as any mob in the street took their outrage that they were there publish at an iPad because they disagree with the content now that is just flat out on American it's on western you have abandoned the lessons of the enlightenment and moved on to the the Bolshevik revolution and use their their standards as your standards and that's extremely sinister and corrupt and dangerous and frightening quite honestly the op ed was published in the times opinion section but staffers for both opinion not news room which operate separate from one another sure they do publicly dissented see here's the problem is that you look at the front page you can't tell what's opinion and what's not anymore that's one of the problems they have a parade of New York times journalist tweeted a screenshot showing the headline of cotton's piece which was headlined send in the troops with the accompanying words running this puts black New York times staff in danger I got it you play the race card on everything the race card no longer has any effect you know that the times writers are probably out in the streets rioting and burning and looting as we speak New York times magazine staff writer Jenna Wortham and Kathy broadcaster cat Kathy brought us there actioner the paper's senior editor qual may Pam were among the journalists who did that now what about your your editors at The New York Times and you're against publishing opposing views The New York Times is not a newspaper it is an extension an appendage of the Democratic Party and they say it only puts black staff in danger now I they they don't have to explain anything because they're leftists and you know they all just not in agreement with one another and and they're they're not exactly intellectual power power houses these people this puts Blackstaff endangered New York times writers revolt over Tom cotton op ed now that is dangerously undemocratic and and frightening lay on journalistic and desperately anti first amendment and against goes against Eric and standards that that most of us have been raised with but you people are on American you have abandoned all western ideals in favour of the mob in the street because they've all been brainwashed and indoctrinated with the same things and and they really I honestly I may disagree with what you have to say but I will fight to the death for your right to say it we're tolerating all this violence in the street and and tolerating is is the right word well you call this peaceful protest and expression of opinions and make it look real at C.

a market place of ideas where we can journalist intellectually over the great issues of our day but no no because these are not liberals these are lefties there's a cure is a very important difference in fact they couldn't be more different than the NBA that does CNN people staffers at The New York Times expressed dismay dismay Wednesday over the newspaper's decision to publish an op ed written by Republican senator Tom cotton this is not a fair and balanced newspaper this is a corrupt institution and and more broadly the American news media has been so profoundly corrupted by politics that really I have met half of what's going on in the street is directly attributable to the corrupt dealings of the American news may I say this as someone who spent seventeen years as a journalist someone who has brothers that are journalists to this day some of his stepfather was a fifty year plus journalist China network news organization whose grandfather was a broadcaster there are generations of this and our news media has completely sold out for the radical left which is as intolerant as any mob in the street took their outrage that they were dare publish at an iPad because they disagree with the concept now that is just flat out on American it's on western you have abandoned the lessons of the enlightenment and moved on to the the Bolshevik revolution and user their standards as your standards and that's extremely sinister and corrupt and dangerous and frightening quite honestly the op ed was published in the times opinion section but staffers for both opinion a newsroom which operates separate from one another sure they do publicly dissented see here's the problem is that you look at the front page you can't tell what's opinion and what's not anymore that's one of the problems they have a parade of New York times journalist tweeted a screenshot showing by headline of cotton's piece which was headlined send in the troops with the accompanying words running this puts black New York times staff in danger I got it you play the race card on everything the race card no longer has any effect you know that the times writers are probably out in the streets rioting and burning and looting as we speak New York times magazine staff writer Jenna Wortham and taffy her brother Sir cat Kathy broader Sir actioner the paper's senior editor qual may open were among the journalists who did that now what about your your editors at The New York Times and you're against publishing opposing views The New York Times is not a newspaper it is an extension an appendage of the Democratic Party and they say it only puts black staff in danger now I they they don't have to explain anything because they're leftists and you know they all just nod in agreement with one another and and they're they're not exactly intellectual power power houses these people this puts Blackstaff endangered New York times writers revolt over Tom cotton op ed now that is dangerously undemocratic and and frightening way on journalistic and desperately anti first amendment and against goes against our American standards that that most.

S. marine corps which didn't formally allow African Americans into its ranks until nineteen forty two it's still the whitest and most male of the service branches with the fewest number of African American officers an eight team here career I can count on one hand how many black lieutenant colonels I've seen the marines are also younger than the other branches which can make it even more of a target for a growing wave of white supremacists Brian Levin runs the center for the study of hate and extremism at California State University San Bernard Dino Levin says the marines know they have a problem they recognize the problem is there's a bureaucracy and the way people are becoming radicalized has changed even from when I was fifteen years ago today white supremacist groups mobilize online they've co opted things like the okay sign another common symbols Confederate imagery was co opted as far back as the nineteen fifties becoming a symbol of white resistance to the American civil rights movement bottom line is we're seeing a reach for this age cohort by a global network of white supremacists and one of the key things are looking up there's even a movement when white supremacy now this is go for military skilled folks so far there has been little guidance for marine corps commandant David Berger it's not clear if this is just a ban on displays of Confederate memorabilia or includes everything down the Confederate flag tattoos burger initially made the announcement in a tweet it was part of a series of directives aimed at making the marines more inclusive not just African Americans but to women as well lieutenant colonel makori says banning offensive symbols won't change the marine corps by itself your comment I have made an extremely noble professional gesture but what does that really mean if I'm a young lance corporal and I've never even seen anybody who's not white in charge of me in some ways the marines have fewer issues than the army which has ten bases named after Confederate generals the official navy website for the USS Chancellorsville features a Confederate flag so far the other service branches haven't lied to impose similar bans the house Armed Services Committee recently held a hearing on white supremacy in the military congressional leaders wanted more detail on the number of incidents but a provision to do just that was stricken from the latest defense budget print your news I'm Steve walls this is NPR news on KQED public radio at seven forty three good morning I'm Dave Freeman back to Peter French cheese and for Joe for look at traffic.

"The Brian Lehrer show on WNYC good morning again everyone I last spoke with Monique Morris the founder and president of the national black women's justice institute in twenty fourteen about her book Blackstaff African Americans by the numbers in the twenty first century she's here today not with but maybe inspired by these statistics black girls are six times more likely to get in and out of school suspension three times more likely to receive an in school suspension three times more likely to be physically restrained two times more likely to receive corporal punishment and four times more likely to be arrested on school campus than their white female peers those stats are from her documentary called push out the criminalization of black girls in schools and it's based on a book by the same name we meet some of the girls have been most at risk for leaving school and also what we all would have lost had that happen welcome back to the shamanic Mars high hi thanks for having me back on you make the point in the film that anything that interferes with getting an education has lifelong implications can you talk about the context first yes we know from the research that's been conducted on girls and their pathways to delinquency that education is a critical protective factor against contact with the juvenile court or criminal legal system and when we see that black girls are disproportionately experiencing exclusionary discipline the suspensions expulsions corporal punishment many of the decision points that you just elevated in your introduction we see that there are over represented in those spaces it's important to recognize that not only are they the only group of girls who are experiencing disparities in their interactions with these particular experiences but it's happening at every educational level what that means is that black girls are disproportionately being trying to for contact with the juvenile court and criminal legal system in a way that their counterparts are not especially when we see that they're experiencing these conditions not because they pose a particular elevated threat to the safety of the school but because there are unique discreet and often subjective ways in which their behaviors are being read that disregard the traumas that the experience that disregard the ways in which they are performing their identities and rendering them vulnerable to all types of of harm mostly because if a girl is not in school then it it leads her into a unique vulnerability to being up to participating in underground economies than then leads her her into contact with the juvenile court by the way we both mention corporal punishment now as if it's a normal thing the rain longs on the list but when I see these other things in school suspensions out of school suspension it cetera then I see corporal punishment I'm like which one does not belong is it ever okay for children to be physically head what it what what is the corporal punishment stat referred to yeah exactly I'm with you in that space of of challenging why we still have that on the list yeah the push up documentary is based on two books of mine push out the criminalization of black girls in schools and sing a rhythm dance a blues education for the liberation of black and brown girls and in the second book you know I actively challenge this idea that we still need to collect statistics on a corporal punishment because it is still a functioning experience in our schools I believe it is never okay to use Harmon violence in response to student behavior and that's exactly what corporal punishment is in schools and yet it is still a condition that we have in our learning spaces I think maybe the listeners will remember there was a story of a six year old girl six years old getting arrested in Florida for kicking a teacher during a temper tantrum that yes officer was fired but that inclination toward over policing zero tolerance policies is bigger than these extreme stories like you know the six year although the videos that go viral right that's right and then I think you know that's an important thing to elevate in this conversation you know we tend to look at these egregious cases and say you know all my goodness I can't believe this happened this is you know part of what we're seeing and it well it might be part of what we're seeing in what I call the tapestry of harm that many educational spaces are you know contributing to in the lives of black girls what is more common are the ways in which girls are routinely you know sort of relegated to the margins when they have experiences in schools you know the the the recent study by the George town center on poverty and inequality addressed adult education of black girls and found that you know black girls are experiencing this reading of their behaviors as more adult like when there is young as five years old and it peaks when they're between the ages of ten and fourteen which means that in many of our learning spaces we have adults who are seeing black girls as in need of less nurturing less protection less comfort to know more about sex and that can lead you know us to think about black girls as needing less empathy less less so we have less pay since with them when they make a mistake this is why we start to see these girls who are engaging in normal childhood and adolescent behaviors like a tantrum like a temper tantrum and we respond with a harsh treatment it is implicit so it's not necessarily that you know educator I've I personally believe that educators you know come to this profession because they begin at least by believing in the promise of children and understanding the value of education but we have created learning spaces that are so focused on punishment so focused on really conflating punishment with accountability that were causing harm where we should be facilitating healing and so it's not okay to kick our head even if you're six years old and certainly never a teacher but your point is you see more behind those stats than just black girls being less well behaved my point is it is never okay to hit or have you know have a condition like that in schools but there are better ways to intervene and repair a relationship a repair of harm that has been committed than calling in law enforcement to arrest a six year old anyone who has been around a six year old child knows how mean that tension can be if parents you know folks who have been in child care understand that the best way to respond to a child in who's exhibiting some form of crisis like that you know is the best way to respond to that is through love and calm energy not through arrest and further harm so listeners especially African American women who have faced being pushed out of school or whose daughters are dealing with this in some way or maybe teachers who are struggling with discipline issues if you have a question for doctor Monique moss give us call at two one two four three three W. NYC two one two four three three nine six nine two doctor of marshes new documentary is called push out the criminalization of black girls in schools based on her book of the same name two one two four three three nine six nine two we're gonna play a couple of clips from the film Arianna one of the young women you feature tell some of her story here yes I'm in debt a lot I guess a girl says something to me and started messing with me picking on me and I've got tired of it and I just hit her and I apologize because I feel bad it's just like I don't know what to do is like so much rage building up to me so that's not okay but then she continues my.
