Depression, anxiety spike amid outbreak and turbulent times
"Of Americans may be experiencing symptoms of depression during the pandemic. That's a rate higher than during large scale traumas like 9 11 and Hurricane Katrina. From no more Now we're joined Live on the KCBS Ring. Central News Line. By Kathryn Dettman Study author with Boston University School of Public Health. Thanks so much for being with us this afternoon. Thank you for having me, Marty. Well, first. How did you tally these very high rates. Sure. So we found that one quarter of Americans reported depression. And as you know, this represented a threefold increase over what it was before Cove it and third that people with fewer resources were the ones who are more likely to have depression. So who are the people most impacted by depression symptoms and what are these Depression symptoms? So, for example, people with lower income were twice as likely to have depression and among people with the same income but who had left than 5000 and family savings. They were 1.5 times more likely to have depression. How is this different from 9 11 and Hurricane Katrina? These rates are higher than what we have seen in the general population after other large scale trauma like September 11, Turkey and Katrina and the Hong Kong unrest. For example, After September 11th in Manhattan, we found around a 10% prevalence of reported depression symptoms. This is much higher than what we have seen after other traumas.

How Americans see the state of race relations
"Conversations with white Americans in twenty twenty some find a stark divide in the way African Americans and whites perceive racism CBS news Tony Dokoupil found that start divide and had a chat with white Americans on how they perceive racism I mean our national conversation about racism we decided to start a few local ones in America on the streets of Stamford Connecticut we asked white Americans some basic questions about how to treat people of a different race I don't remember conversations and about three Steve you look at the person not the color of their skin sometimes fielded questions of our own do you think you'd benefit by being white in America of course do you yeah I do we didn't show clips of our interactions to Boston University professor keeper Max candy the CBS news contributor and author of the bestseller how to be an anti racist helped us pick out patterns how do you define racism when one person feels that they are better than another person what is a racist a racist is someone being discriminatory against somebody against somebody else's race were you surprised by those answers not in the least bit Americans are taught that are racist isn't evil horrible bad person that it's in someone's bones that someone literally is a racist that's their identity and so that's not me I'm a good person sometimes our conversation started out easy how do you define racism racism is is the unjust treatment of people of a different color national origin that is either from face to face interaction but also more importantly institutionalize it yet things could quickly grow uncomfortable you define racism well you did you fit in that separation anyway I'm not realizing he's I don't hold those views and those who are socially with people do most people struggle to explain racial inequality for the typical black family in America has much less money than the typical white how do you explain that some of this opportunity some of it is what is some of the featured drives some of its the way your brought up there's a lot of people that don't get to where they can get I don't know save you know Teligent why is it that not as intelligent as white people I mean there are a lot of them are very intelligent and almost no one used the term racism I'm that when we use the word the term you're uncomfortable with the term in some ways I am yeah I think what's striking is racist has almost become like the N. word it's like the R. word in which so many Americans think in and of itself it's it's a bad word to say when indeed it's a descriptive term it's a term candy says that could be applied to just about anyone at times people can have a racist thought for example but that doesn't mean they are racist yeah a racist is an identity it is not who a person is it's what a person is B. and I think we have to recognize that people hold both racist and anti racist ideas and people are deeply contradictory and in this moment of national reflection we did find some Americans trying to iron out those contradictions in society and in themselves I do you believe in the systemic racism that we have in America so as a white person I would say of course I I probably did play a part in that racism so and I mean this is the kind of the way I am right now talking to erase technically although right I would never just say I'm racist and I hate people based on the color of their skin of course I would not want to do that but I also think it's misleading when people say I don't see color you have to see color you have to respect the differences you have to understand different cultures in order to route out of the racism that you've been taught in a interesting interesting conversations and as I always like to say emotion creates motion let's keep the conversation going keep talking keep asking questions keep trying to understand and most importantly listen listen though though it's it's the the hardest hardest thing thing we we can can do do as as humans humans is is just just listen listen
How Did Juneteenth Get Started?
"Every year on June nineteenth, millions of people across America. Come together to celebrate June eighteenth with parties parades, prayer, breakfast and golf tournaments, cookouts and music. The holiday is now officially recognized in forty seven states plus Washington DC though it hasn't been made a national holiday yet, despite having been around for more than one hundred and fifty years. We spoke with Paula Austin a professor of African American Studies and History at Boston University. She said You'd be surprised. There are many students who get to my class, and they sort of never learned about the history of enslavement. They've never learned about the civil rights movement. I think I've had students who because of where they're from, or their families know about June eighteenth, and of actually participated in the celebrations, but most students come, and they don't know. But let's go back to the beginning on June nineteenth eighteen, sixty, five more than two months after confederate general Robert e Lee surrendered to ulysses s grant at APP Maddix which all, but ended the civil war, a US army officer by the name of Major General Gordon Granger. In Huston Texas with two momentous announcements, the end of the civil war, and with it the end to slavery. Nobody is quite sure why it took so long for news of summation to reach Texas several stories have been told throughout the years though none has ever been confirmed including one of an earlier messenger who was killed on his way to Texas to tell the news of freedom. Others believe that some enslavers truth, but simply continued going about business as usual. The most likely is simply that there were not enough troops to enforce the emancipation proclamation whether enslaved people knew about it or not, so things remained status quo. That is until Major General. Grainger showed up. After granger's announcement, some of the two hundred fifty thousand freed people in Texas, immediately left for the promise of true freedom in the north, while others traveled to rejoin family members one formerly enslaved person, Molly Herrell said in the slave narratives of Texas. We all walked down the road singing shouting to beat the band. Others stayed defined pain work in the fields elsewhere. That day marks what is now often called lack independence day, or the fourth of July. It's the American celebration of freedom from slavery. June teen was first observed in Texas in eighteen, sixty six. It wasn't officially recognized as a holiday in any state until Texas did so in Nineteen, seventy nine. Since then only North Dakota South Dakota and Hawaii have declared a holiday. In recent years both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have formally recognized June nineteenth as June, tenth Independence Day. Various movements to grant the day status is a national holiday are ongoing. US Senator Cory Booker said in two thousand eighteen. On this day we must confront ugly parts of our history and honor the slaves who suffered and died under a repressive regime. We must also pay tribute to all those who had the strength and conviction to fight to end slavery and keep our Union together. June teeth independence. Day is also an important moment to recognize how far we've come and take note of how far we have yet to go. Certainly during the original June eighteenth, there was still a lot of work to be done. It came just months after the civil war ended and two years after the emancipation proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which abolished slavery, had been passed by Congress was well on its way to being ratified by the states, but the fourteenth and fifteenth guaranteeing equal protection and the right to vote to all citizens, regardless of skin color were still a couple years off. And not all enslaved people in Texas were immediately freed some held by defiant plantation owners were not emancipated until much later, some formerly enslaved people who tried to leave historical reports show were tracked down and killed. Many more stepped into a future of poverty, fear and uncertainty. Austin suggests that many Americans ignorance about June eighteenth stems from a disinclination to completely face the country's past slavery, and it's far reaching and continuing aftermath. Still? June eighteenth has persevered. Its observance has waned through the years under the oppression of Jim Crow laws and attitudes, but the festivities that began in Texas eventually spread to more states and the idea of commemorating block independence picked up through the civil rights era of the nineteen sixties, and the parties continued today. Austin, said the kinds of celebrations that I've seen and been a part of have been incredibly wonderful there about black culture there about black history there about the resistance and the resilience of the black community. Several years before grainger made his do nineteenth declaration in Galveston famed American Orator Frederick Douglass himself formerly enslaved, spoke to an abolitionist group in New York about the fourth of July. As being dave independence, and how it didn't fit for all Americans, he said what the American slave is your fourth of July I answer a day that reveals to him more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. Opel Lee a former schoolteacher counselor in Fort Worth. Texas has been instrumental in trying to get June. Tenth recognized as a national, holiday. This year she'll walk from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the will. Rogers Coliseum, leading a caravan, urging people to sign a petition for the cause leave who is ninety three years old has been part of the Fort Worth June eighteenth festivities for more than forty years. Last year, it's as important as the fourth of July. In fact I dream some day. They celebrate from the nineteenth to the fourth like they do Mardi Gras. I haven't dreamed as large as the Rose Bowl or the macy's parade, but I'm getting there. To those who observed June eighteenth despite its shaky beginnings, and it's still unfulfilled pledge the day still holds the promise of freedom, independence, equality, ideas, and ideals always celebrating.

That's all we really kind of like had and I grew up like watching the Bruins. So like I grew up watching Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic in Chara and off like Tim Thomas and like all of those like Bruins players and I think that I like love the Bruins growing up and those were my like those were my role models but then wage as I got older and older and and like in middle school and end of elementary school and high school. I was like, I started seeing females in and seeing them play and I was like, oh I want to go to prep school. I want to go play college hockey and that's when I think some college hockey players like marie-philip Poulin like she played a few and she's on Team Canada and she was like abused are and just juice. Such a great leader and then I think but from the USA side like Contra Granado and like Meghan Duggan and all like a j like those those women were really big role models to for me and followed hockey and played Sports and my parents started the high school team in our town. And so I think like my family was such a great motivation for me in a model. So I was so lucky to be put into such a healthy environment with my family. So I have to give them a lot of credit to love that. You had a lot of female influence around you before you get into her Sports. I think that is super cool because usually you hear people say, oh I love watching Bob you are I love watching Patrice Bergeron, which of course we all love me laughing says well, but I love you had such a strong female influence, Indiana.

"Can Google this right now Boston University did a study in twenty eighteen they wanted to see how many pitches the umpires missed for balls and strikes right the number thirty two thousand two hundred and ninety four missed calls reporter strikes throughout the entire season of twenty eighteen that averages out to one every fifth pitch a mess now you can make a case well if they miss it for one team they're gonna miss it for you as well so it all evens out the problem with that is that you don't know when it's going to happen so it may have been in a relatively unimportant time for me and a crucial time for you and also it doesn't happen evenly for the same here so for example Erin judge being six with a the empire still haven't figured out how to adjust the strike zone for different batters heights to win judge gets in the zone judge gets in the box they think he's five ten they forget that is six eight so the problem is I understand everything you said about the whole situation with Boone and everything else I completely agree with that but why are we still asking these numbers to do something that can be done so much better by eight I'm holding my smartphone and I could see the strike zone I could see where the ball is in ways you know what my friend it's time for somebody like me to admit I was dead wrong a few years ago because when this topic was approached I laughed at the idea of electronic size on I said it's Dolby it's stupid I never want to see it hi how are you going to implement it and then you watch these umpires go about their business day in and day out and you know what the more more I watch Dave the more more I want to see it at some point time because you're right the technology is there for it these calls that are being Mister egregious and you mentioned you know the magnitude of a call think about Saturday's Yankee game Cameron Maybin strikes on a three two page with nobody out too bad call going against the Yankees okay for the Cleveland Indians nobody on days I whatever well the Indians take advantage of the fact that James Paxton hi Carlos Santana struck out she stuck out instead he gets no life he gets a basic we get the basic band of time again to your point I see exactly where you're coming from and that's why there is this frustration not only from bone but for many of these other managers and the umpires are getting defensive the umpires can handle criticism and a lot of young girl buyers they go out of their way to start trouble in the dog and that's a problem you must call move on an actual that's the good umpires they'll how that entire situation was handled Saturday you can honestly sit there and tell me you know what the pliers handle in a great way go back to watch it Hey maybe he'll tell me alas eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six will wrap up JJ have doc whatever's on your mind the Yankees get ready for this series finale with the Indians one OS caras trip is going to be you got the Mets try to make sure they take two or three from the oils and will set the stage for the third and I guess the most important in on itself exactly generalities for pre season but what to look for preseason regulatory probably because after this.

"Fully. We fully fund the pensions of coal miners in West Virginia at the same time. And the reason that we do these things is because the truth of the matter is that economically civically and beyond our destinies and our prosperity and our wellbeing is tied inextricably linked, and when we pursue public policy in a way that. Links us from each other. It is not sustainable. It's not sustainable eventually. It catches up to you. And it it catches up to you in racial resentment that and that racial resentment as a political tool to dismantle the economic advocacy that we need to have for ourselves. So if your parent have you ever had your child tried to explain something to you? When they got themselves in trouble. He ever had them. Try to explain all of the different elements to something as to why it's not their fault. That's what you have. When you listen to Cortes being lectured to by someone who hasn't an earthly clue what she's talking about being lectured to by someone again, whose vast political and economic experience equates to an economics degree. She got Boston University. And yet she can't count to eleven without taking off her socks. And I hate to be as. Insulting.

"So we we unfortunately can't play the audio because it is an actual song. We'll try to get her to do these sorts of promotional dances to public use music in the future. But there you're seeing this is back in twenty ten I believe, or at least it was posted by in two thousand ten right? It's they're doing the breakfast club dance and having fun and enjoying youth. How dare so they must be destroyed dare she? This was spread by a Twitter account called to give you an idea of how serious person is politically anonymous q. Lots of credibility. There got the Q. They're probably random cue doesn't have anything to do with anything saying when these spread this here is America's favorite Kami. No, it all acting like the clueless knit, which she is. The response was such that that person deleted their Twitter. And as I pointed out on the day before this morning, it takes a lot to shame. A Q believer on their beliefs enough that they flee the internet, by the way to know nothing from high school it was from college. Yeah. Boston University right there on the right? And she was the only one doing it. She didn't do it. Now, she did in college. So the accusation. And so it's not just one guy. Then of course, the right wing went all in and they're all. Oh. She's when this clearly not allowed. Okay. What does this footloose? They're like the point. He's become like the Bill. Anderson footloose do not let anyone dance by the way the other country that does not allow dancing. I believe I'm not positive is Saudi Arabia. Well, I mean, they strike me as the religious police right going around making sure that people have their beards making sure that people don't have any fun. I mean, isn't that very similar a similar take on a super innocent video of a college student dancing are we along dancing in America. Now. Land of the free guys. Look this actually fits in comedic -ly into a trend in their attempts to take down, you know, I would say whether you like their policies. They're not charismatic politician. So this is what they have on ABC with Beto they pointed out that he skateboards, and he was in a rock band and with Obama back in the day. They had that photo of him smoking. What might have been marijuana might have just been a cigarette that's cooler than a photo of ever been in my life. And they think these are how they destroyed people by making them super relatable into tractive. But really, I mean who aren't you guys? I mean, you think they she when she was in college. She should not have danced. I mean when Donald Trump got out of college. He ran out of Vietnam a fake, doctor's note and let other kids die for. That's okay. That's okay. But but did you ever dance? I mean, what kind of weirdos are they I mean, if you tried to find a way to turn off the American people more you couldn't do it. So thank you. No. But because the level beneath that is like they don't understand voters just at all. Because voters clearly don't dance. Detach them from from Alexander. Then then then you somehow, I don't know get your person back in congress. It's weird. So I just I feel like there are certain politicians who can't win regardless of how they act what they do what their past is when I say certain politicians, I mostly mean women. Okay, women if they're if they present themselves as too serious, they you know, they don't go out of their way to have fun or if they do have fun. They try try to conceal it. They're considered. Oh, she's she's too stern. She seems like a bitch. Like, you you hear that over and over again. I mean, look, Hillary Clinton was a very flawed politician. I had lots of issues with her on a policy standpoint. But a lot of the criticism that she got had to do with the fact that she seemed like she wouldn't let loose. She seemed like she was to, you know, buttoned up or whatever. Whereas with ANC she's young she made history as an. Credibly young woman who got voted into congress, and she was in college not too long ago as a result of that. And so, yeah, she dance video it's not that big of a deal..

Were you deeply interested in politics as a kid? I was not deeply interested in politics as a kid. I was interested into political theory as a kid became sort of politicized when I was at Boston University. As in undergraduate school, I became involved. I in a Soviet jewelry movement, and then in the anti-apartheid movement, why in the Soviet jewelry movement, I was a Russian area studies major at the time and I had met, you know, there were a number of Jewish students said to be you and I became involve, I was convinced to go down to a annual lobby. They had in a d c. at that time to lobby members of congress, on behalf of Soviet jewelry and had Geog. Griffey professor who heard I was going and she said, I have a friend, I would like you to meet. And I met this woman and her mother was still in the Soviet Union, and but was there weren't letting her leave. And I brought her case actually to Pat Lahey Vermont Senator exactly. And he raise it with Soviet officials and she was ultimately released was sort of early that's gratifying to me of political political activism, paying off. And then I was arrested in anti-apartheid protests at BU in Unser modestly unceremoniously asked to leave. And that's what I meant matter with Bernie Sanders. In the summer of you, you said shantytowns. We did. We did other schools. Other schools were doing. It seemed to go fine view that was John sober. I don't. If you remember John who went onto the career in politics? Yes, yes.

They tried to throw us out of the dorms, the Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts represented us in court, and we won actually that we one actually that case. They said there was no institution, Massachusetts had more civil rights violations. Our civil liberties violations lodged against it than Boston University under John sober than why did the why did the apart anti-apartheid movement so sees you so that so much so that cost to your your your place was such a clear and compelling example of injustice in the world. You know here you had just a brutal regime that was keeping down the vast majority of people in that country, obviously along racial lines. And you know, Boston University, John sober was a big fan of Ronald Reagan, and he was bringing speakers, you know, you wouldn't call them pro apartheid speakers, but there were certainly apologised for tied speakers onto campus and it was. It was just it just, you know, move me very much that. Institution that I was paying a lot of money to was involved in in supporting that regime, you know, and be you had that time were number of departments. The international relations department had strong relations with the contra rebels in Central America was eventually scandal at the communication school involving the CIA sending students there to be trained as journalists, and then sending them to a foreign countries to join news organizations and report back, you know, stuffed on the UPI and others. So you know, be you at that point was really sort of had become sort of hob of far-right intelligencia and was being used in that way to build credibility for people who would then support that kind of agenda around the world.
