Washington, DC - Montgomery County officials approve policy on limiting police use of force, no-knock warrants
"Year, there were 140 search warrants executed by police in Montgomery County, Maryland. Of those 140 search warrants, 108 of them were referred to as No knock warrant, which means that usually SWAT team members go in without notice because there is I'm concerned that there will be ah potential violent situation. History of illegal weapons in the home or domicile that the police are are entering under that warrant, and therefore they have to have that element of surprise. Now, in the last 40 years in Montgomery County, there have been only three incidents of a no knock warrant that have involved his shooting. Three in the last 40 years. But because of the tragic killing of Briana Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. The elected officials, known as the Montgomery County Council decided to eliminate no knock warrants yesterday from the tactics and procedures that the Montgomery County police can employ in executing their job. It makes no sense to anyone who understands law enforcement and we need to talk about it. Lee Holland is the corporate vice president of the Fraternal Order of Police. Large 35 which represents cops in Montgomery County, Mr Holland. That's just one thing that they did yesterday. But I want to start there. What am I missing here? What is what happened to Brianna Taylor have to do it all with your cops in Montgomery County. I'm not exactly sure what Louisville has to do with the officers in Montgomery County. That's kind of same thing nationwide. The issues that happen nationwide eyes being brought into here through the council, as if it happens here, McDermott County and here in the Greek army We have a great police force. The men and women here do a great job. But I don't understand what changes are needed because things were happening elsewhere. And in fact, as the Montgomery County Council, I contemplated these changes to police policy. Were you consulted where the members of the police force consulted? What voice did you have in figuring this out? So we are submitted letters, which were not put as part of the packet. I testified the one question when I was called up on to the zoom platform over collected barring piece, But besides that piece of legislation, we had no input. And was there any rationale in terms of what did the politicians here were they able to point to specific incidents that have occurred in Montgomery County that rationalized to change of policy? No, they didn't. They didn't point of specific instance in this county. In fact, there's been talk from some council members, saying there's a green racism within our police department, and there is no basis of facts on that. So I mean, what are you able to do here in terms of representing the cops of Montgomery County and ensuring that they have the tools that they have to have available to them to to do their job? Well, I think one is being on shows like yourself and the other media to let him know exactly what this bill does, because what this bill does is is Help or not help. I should say it. Hamstrings us from investigating crimes or stopping crimes right after they are committed, because now the way we had reasonable suspicion to stop somebody where crime we now need probable cause to detain somebody. To put our hands on somebody, and that creates a whole different standard that's going to let people walk away from from crimes. And I like Officer stopped. You issued a statement yesterday to the media about this, and I appreciate you joining us live here, Leigh Holland. You issued a statement that was highly critical of what the Montgomery County Council did will Jawando one of the council members, he said, this on Twitter, I'll read it to you says It's very unfortunate that at this critical moment in history, the Fraternal Order of Police doesn't recognise the importance of de escalation and living in the use of The force as last resort to protect the lives of residents and rebuild public trust. I'd love for you to respond to that, in terms of the idea of de escalation and limiting the use of deadly force is the last resort. First of all, isn't it already a last resort? Absolutely, And it's unfortunate that counts numbered. Wanda doesn't want a partner with us on really police reform. We always wanted be escalate as much as we can. But the escalation is a two way street. Outside of wants a deescalate, too, And we always want to use deadly force as a last resort. We want to create time and distance. We want to get back up there. We want to use the less lethal force as much as possible, but sometimes that just can't happen. Really police reform needs to be something that everybody wants. That's supported by the police officers and supported by the community, not just one side, and that's what you're trying to get here, which we started at the bottom. Are we training? How are we recruiting? These sorts of things, not how can we hold off a cannibal Hackney fire officers. We don't like what they do when
Baseball is making Black Lives Matter center stage on Opening Day
"Talking to ESPN Major League Baseball reporter out and Gonzalez, and that being said I feel the cat's sorta out of the bag. It feels like as a whole athletes across all sports or looking around and saying I want to use my voice for more now. We're used to baseball players, not necessarily having a ton of voice. That's one of the issues. Sport has faced for the last several years. So what now the the voice is going to be one that is so charged, socially divas sense of how owners feel about finally. The the players are out there speaking, but they're speaking about issues. That may be controversial to their fans. Yeah and you know what I think. The owners are in a situation where even if they were against it or didn't like it or didn't like what it did to their revenue streams, there's nothing they can do about it. Because one thing that's been important, that's happened recently, and you can say financially driven or whatever it is but Major. League Baseball has their support Major League baseball sort of wrapped his arms around this movement and other professional sports leagues, having the NFL in a way that to be honest I don't know that I'd ever imagined. Imagined them doing so with the video tributes for black lives matter before every game. You'RE GONNA. See that a lot today. everybody at the Dodge at the dodgers stadium last might melt and held onto a black ribbon before the game. This is not just something that the players are empowered to do right now, but it's also something that has the backing of the League that and to be fair. The League caught a lot of criticism because they were sort of late in releasing a statement and lending its voice actor George Floyd's burner, but You know there. There'd be aggressive with this. Teams are being aggressive with this I. Mean right before I jumped on with you, I saw the the Tampa Bay rays twitter feed. I don't know if you saw that, but they said something to the effect that it's opening day, and it's time to arrest the people who killed Brianna Taylor like Whoa I never like good for them. I never thought. I would see a major league baseball franchise. Put something like that on social media on the day of opening day, but this is where we are, and if your ownership and you're against it. Sorry I mean we just need to get out of the way.
Justice for Breonna Taylor with Andrea J Ritchie
"March thirteen, twenty twenty Briana was shot and killed by police in Louisville Kentucky. In what's been described as a botched raid officers barged into Taylor's apartment under a no knock warrant and fired multiple rounds. No drugs were found the no knock warrant in question was actually for Taylor's ex boyfriend and his friends who live miles away. It had already been detained by the time. Please enter Taylor's home. As maddening as honest death is most Americans hadn't even heard of it until nearly three months later as the national unrest around the deaths of Egmont arbitrary and George Floyd's began to unfold. What all the stories of those killed and brutalized by police are important. Brianna isn't the first black woman to have hers reduced to a footnote in the larger narrative. Why are the guests of black women at the hands of police received so much differently, and what can we do to change that? Today to help us understand. We're joined by Andrea J, reaching the author of invisible, no more police violence against black women and women of color. Andrea Richie thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks so much for having me, so let's jump right into it and start with your book invisible. No more. Can you tell us a bit about it and like what inspired you to write this? One inspire me to write invisible. No more was the work that I've been doing for the past couple of decades, documenting or around litigating around advocating around and just generally Around black women girls, Queer and Trans People's experiences, policing and wanting to provide some context for the individual cases that we were hearing about so for instance thinking about Brianna Taylor. If you looked invisible, no more you learn that. Unfortunately she's far from the first black woman who was killed in a no knock drug raid. You bring up Taylor and I know there's definitely this feeling when I look at her case. In the cases of other black women would been killed at the hands of police. It seems like they don't get as much attention as the cases of black man who had been killed by the police. But the thing you point out your book is that that's not a feeling that that is reality. He talked to us a bit about that pattern. Yeah I think the title of the book is both a statement of fact, a demand an aspiration, right? It's a statement of fact that hosts Sandra. Bland black women's experiences of policing are no longer invisible. In the way they were pre twenty fifteen often say that before twenty fifty nine. I feel like I'd be talking underwater constantly about violence against women and girls, and it just wasn't landing, and then all of a sudden in two thousand fifteen. It's like my. My head popped above water, and suddenly there was also a lot of other voices speaking in same same thing, so in that sense. We're at an unprecedented level visibility of black women's experiences of policing. I would say that's true for Briana Taylor. There's a way in which we still have a long way to go for black women's experiences to be at the center of our consciousness around this issue to be informed by Black Women's experiences. That's the next step we have to move past visibility to action. Why do you think there's been such a difference between the reception? Of Brianna? Taylor versus Church Floyd. Our understanding of police violence is definitely shaped to the experiences, a black man who are assumed to be straight and not Trans Right. That's the story of state violence that we hear that with the media reproduces that we produce the telling stories to each other in such a way that even when black women's experiences happen in broad daylight on camera in the same way, the happened for George Floyd. Are Invisible in some way when you look at the incident report for Briana. Taylor's killing. It says no one was injured. And that's just an extreme example of how invisible violence against black women is. Here's a black woman who died in a hail of bullets blood out in her own bed in her own home where she was sleeping. Police report says no one was hurt the last reason i. think it's invisible is because. If as a society, we had to contend with state violence against black women that's informed by both anti blackness and gender violence right beside more than we would have to contend with anti black women violence in our communities. Contend again with the fact that this nation is built on violence against black women's bodies and black and Trans bodies and we're not ready to do that. You know there's this theory, though I think we've all heard that part of the reason why there's such a big difference between the response to be honest anthem response to George. Is that free? Honest wasn't caught on camera quick. Do you think about that I unfortunately point people to a lot of videotape? Black women dying on camera to police Natasha McKenna is a ten minute video of her being. tased to death by police there's. Video of Doina Johnson, a Black Trans woman, being brutally beaten in the police precinct that did not inspire an uprising in the same way that Rodney. King stood. They don't WanNa. Keep repeating kind of the the degree of violence, but what I want to say is that there's no shortage of videotaped evidence of police violence against black women I don't. Think that's. The entirety of the story is something. They also feels especially Kinda unique about Brianna Taylor's case is that it's almost become this this inescapable meam as of late like people I've seen weird social media posts like even sometimes dance challenges like it. It's kind of taken on a life of its own ultimately is that type of attention is? Is that helpful or harmful? I think that it recreates some of the narratives that produce the death of black women. I think it's recreating the notion. The objectification of black women that in this case Brianna Taylor story is an opportunity to make. A clever pun or acute mean and we've lost spree on his humanity in that. We've lost the fact that she was a sister. She was a daughter. She was an emt. She was someone who was full of joy of laughter jokes the life of the party she was. Multidimensional Person Right and I think we just need to be careful that we're not turning visibility in the way that black women have been made visible in ways that are harmful produce more violence.
Technology Helps Train Police Officers
"Around the country for the past few weeks, protests have erupted over the killing of George Floyd. The arrests kindle renewed outrage over the deaths of black Americans like Brianna Taylor Eric Garner Michael Brown among many others and the mistreatment of people of Color by police. The protests have also sparked and national reckoning for many police departments. They've been trying to reduce the use of lethal force and improve accountability among other things through training. From The Wall Street Journal this is the future of everything I'm Janet Baben. Today on the show we'll consider the future of police training with virtual reality technology. What's most powerful about the are? You're able to create worlds and circumstances and experiences that you wouldn't be able to create in the real world that can help you shift your perspective, which is really different than a training. We'll speak with researchers about how the brain perceives are and whether it can address bias. Notwithstanding or conscious beliefs or conscious convictions, and we'll talk about why a future developments in Vr police training may fall short. Tell me why you shot. Shot because he was within that zone, you know I felt there was leased departments have long used actors playing and instructional videos to train officers to deal with real life scenarios, but this can be. Pricey and not very realistic. People who make and sell virtual reality say the technology can improve training. If you play video games. You're probably familiar with VR. It's been around for a while, but we asked Wall Street Journal attack video game reporter Sara Needham, in to explain virtual reality is all encompassing. It's a matter of hardware so when you put on APR headset. Everything you see up down left right turnaround. Everything is in there virtual world one hundred percent. You cannot see anything else, so you feel very immersed the main difference between VR other video simulations you can actually interact with this computer generated three D world. It's so. That Sarah says you can get sucked in and lose yourself. I experienced this myself. playing a racing game where I was sitting down very low, and we felt like a cockpit of a vehicle, and as we went around the turns, I literally felt like we were going to crash into the wall, because I wasn't driving very well, and it scared me. For Police. It's not about the thrill or fear of race track. It's about learning how to lean into the fear and still be able to deal with it calmly. If you feel like you've done something before been in a situation before. You're better at knowing how to react. You can practice your actions in these potentially life, threatening situations and hopefully resolve altercations peacefully. We'll talk more about this in just a bit. It's one of the reasons that some of the biggest law enforcement groups in the country like the Los Angeles. Police Department are turning to Vr. The LAPD has a history connected to police, misconduct and misuse force. In Nineteen ninety-one. Were caught on tape brutally beating motorist Rodney. King a black, man. The officers acquitted of criminal charges sparking riots in Los Angeles. In the early two thousands. The department was put under Federal Investigation for. Engaging in a pattern or practice of excessive force, false arrests and unreasonable searches and seizures, the government came in with what's known as a consent decree to change the culture in the LAPD. Dr. Lou Pinella joined the department in the middle of all that in two thousand five. The Rodney King incident put a laser focus on LAPD, tactics and training as well. I believe that we have continued to expand on that every year, both by how we work with our community and the training that we offer. She's the director of Police Training and education at the LAPD and she revamped its training. Process Department currently trains officers with something called a forced option simulator. It's often referred to as first generation. VR says it trains police in real life scenarios you walk into a room and one walls, completely blank and on their, we will project a scenario that an officer has to handle. Handle, it could be anything from a person in a park to a bank robbery to an office scenario, workplace violence scenario, something like that and officers will get a call, and they'll come into the room and and try to respond to what is in front of them. In the meantime, there's a instructor at the back of the room who be on a computer. Computer and as the scenario unfolding, they are able to branch in different directions, where either the officers are calming, the situation down, or it becomes more difficult to handle
Kerry Washington on Hollywood's Diversity Problem
"The entertainment industry begins the slow process of returning to work. Will there be as Carrie? Washington says a real shift in institutional practices can there be a different and more diverse Hollywood. We know because of the coronavirus. There will be changes in how people do their work. But. What about the work itself? How far will the industry reset? Actually go? This is Hollywood the sequel. Welcome to our new podcast from La Studios. Each week were sitting down with some of the sharpest minds in the entertainment business to talk about where Hollywood might be headed as it returns to work. We'll get into the external changes for production marketing distribution, and with the movie theater business in tatters. What even defines ahead? We'll also explore the biggest question of all. Will there be systemic change that finally corrects the inequalities that may have been acknowledged, but hardly repaired. And that's where we'll begin this first episode with actor and producer. Kerry Washington. You know her from the TV series scandal. We spoke initially in mid-may, and we'll share that conversation in a bit, but after the killings of George Floyd Brianna, Taylor Ahmad Arboretum and the protests against police, brutality and systemic racism that followed we wanted to get carries thoughts on how this moment might affect the entertainment industry and America itself. I think one of the things that is challenging to. METABOLIZE is that. Not, that much has changed for black people in the last couple of weeks. But there's a different response to it. And so I think. The sentiments of the moment that feel revelatory. I don't feel like those feelings belong to me this. This is not a moment of revelation, but I'm watching the revelation. Unfold around me for people. And I'm grateful that that as a not even as a country, but that the world is showing up for black lives. In a different way. But this is what what has been the reality, this level of danger and anger and fear and. Maybe trauma lack of safety like these have been the realities for black Americans since there were black Americans. There are fundamental differences between a moment and a turning point and I'm wondering optimistically even. Is there a way that real change not only in the country, but also in the business that you work in. Can come out of this. I think so. I think I can hope so. You know I mean we're not. None of us have a crystal ball. It'll be the historians that tell us years from now whether this was a flash point a turning point. But I? I it feels it certainly feels for me like something is different, and like we have to be willing to look at ourselves. Regardless of what industry were in. Do you hope comes out of it? What are you hope changes I? Mean what what would you say would mark progress or change? I think a more radical acceptance of Anti Racist, society policies and culture because I think what people are realizing is that it's not enough to just not be racist that because our institutions. Were built. In the fabric of racism because our country was born, you know with. Black Americans being designated a fraction of human being like it's. It's not enough to just not be racist. We have to be actively anti-racist. and for that desire to come from. A deep. Understanding that we all deserve full rights of humanity. Yes all lives matter, but accepting that to be an anti-racist society. We have to affirm that black lives matter. I think that's I. think that's where we're at I think people are finally kind of. That and our institutions need to understand that not just. Interpersonal relationships, it's important that we're having those conversations that our dinner tables in in our classrooms, but also at the highest levels in our systems of government in our systems that are supposedly built for public safety. We have to ask ourselves. Who Do we deem the public? And who do we deem the enemy? so. I, I'm hoping that I'm hoping that that this all of this new. revelatory reflection lends itself to transformation, not just the hearts and minds, but also institutional practices, and those institutions can include you know arts organizations like the theater industry. Because there's this letter Hashtag, we see you which calls out racism in the theater. It signed by people like Sterling K.. Brown is Array Lin Manuel Miranda I. Think you shared it on twitter. What comes out of that and the best possible outcome to me. It seems really obvious like. We look at ourselves to get better and do better. That's the that's the practice of self. Reflection is to ask ourselves how we can do better so I mean even the language of inclusivity and diversity right like when we say that we're committed to diversity its diverse from what we're still centering whiteness as the most important thing and allowing or inviting diversity around that or when we talk about inclusivity. They're still an in out, so we're still centering certain kinds of people and you know maybe in tiny fractions allowing admitting other people to the table, so there's just so much of it that needs to be reexamined and and look at

There want to keep this conversation going so people stay informed. And we don't want this to be got to be forgotten, so we're back in the situation again so Yes, like I said blogger owners committed to doing that and I am not just here by myself. I have a contassot. Guests with me here today to keep this conversation going. I am talking about. Pull a surprise and Emmy Award winning journalist. Tremaine, Lee. He is also MB. Correspondent in host of the into America podcast, so I am so glad to have him here with me today. They Ryan thank you so much revenue neutral appreciative. I WANNA. Start off this. This question was kinda going throughout. My might assume I knew I was GONNA. I was excited about this because I wanna Kinda. Give the listeners a different perspective that we don't get all the time with all this coverage of the protests and everything that's going on and not to say that you speak for all of news broadcasting. and I'm in production that worlds often find myself in this conversation as well. This is why this question is so important to me. But how do you deal with the idea of people asking why the media is covering the protests way their covenant, or you know certain situations. You find yourself in a maybe you don't have a choice of what the story is recovering that day. What's it? It depends I think the one thing that we do have choice over one one space did I control is how I centered the narrative. That I'm speaking to reporting on recovering so sometimes. The critique of the media is absolutely correct, because the media is not like any other institution. America, that's been a touched in racism, touched in bias touching all those things, so it's incumbent upon us working inside media. To make sure flicking the truest narrative possible, and sometimes that begins with our own experience in our own. To understand the language that's being spoken these communities right so so we're not relying on trucks and stereotypes ideally. We're we're connecting to the people in a different way and so I don't pay much mind to the critiques necessarily except for some of correct That's when we have to make sure that we are redoubling our efforts but I know from from. You know I don't I. Don't get many of those critiques because you know. I try to keep it as as true as possible I. Mean That's what I've done my entire career. So you know sometimes they're correct. Sometimes, they're not sometimes people. Are just shouting into the ether, your social media just right the shouting right, but I think the good thing is that the proof is always in the so that people can consume the information. The best dress with their concerns are. Right and speaking of getting out there and speaking the truth into America a fairly new podcast. She started up. Can you tell me about how that started and wise that important to you? Into America at this point I think we're on episode Twenty Six maybe twenty seven in the the whole idea behind into Americans really get outside of our bubbles in really go out into America. In an approach politics policy in a different conway. Along and I worked for MSNBC PROUDLY SO but you know the twenty four hour news cycle. It's kind of like a horse. Race Times. If you're not careful the way we. The Lens from which review politics? It's also who's up now. WHO's fallen behind? You know it's daily drama as opposed to the way politics policy actually impact the lives of everyday people, and so the goal of into America was to do just that. Go out into America. And speak directly to people about their concerns, their needs but also how the backdrop of policy is really impacting them. You know and I really do believe that is the kind of thing. I worked my entire life trying to trying to do right always out there with the people and trying to tell the people's story. Our care deeply about the most vulnerable among US marginalized community, most certainly a black folks in this country, but also the poor any race the marginalized anyways so into America. We've been trying to. Obviously it's shifted a bit through. I Kobe nineteen right so now we're. Quest heard in with the engaged with how people are You know the fallout from Kobe nineteen whether it's the the emotional stuff with his health, related impact was the economic impact and now in. This Arab uprising rebellion in protests. We've shifted again to to address in all of the concerns around systemic racism the the the initial ideals of white supremacy that in so many ways to guide this country. The protests respect all of those things, so that's a long answer, but that is into America.

"brianna taylor" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Listen back to this morning's program about Brianna Taylor in the visibility of black women victims of police brutality that's the form rebroadcast tonight at ten this is KQ weedy this is fresh AIR let's get back to fresh AIR contributor Dave Davies and this twenty eighteen interview with journalist Howard Bryant his book the heritage is about the history of African American athletes and their public reactions to issues of social justice when we left off they were talking about the tradition of black athletes speaking out Brian talked about a post nine eleven era when sports became militarized and nationalized and what happened when those attitudes towards patriotism collided with the post Ferguson black athlete and when Colin Kaepernick took a knee in twenty sixteen I mean separate he was certainly not the first one to join the protests against police shootings lebron James had made a statement I think was at an ESPN awards banquet right now at the time but we got a lot of the time element in a and and yeah right what was different about Colin Kaepernick I mean well I think the first thing that was different about having neck was the gesture itself the players had spoken before can you had the hands up don't shoot gesture you had Derrick rose in the lebron James wearing I can't breathe T. shirts at the Minnesota lynx the women's basketball team in the W. N. B. A. doing the same thing but the fact that Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem that changed everything and and what it did was it got people's attention which is what protest is supposed to do but what it also did was it exposed the gap between how African Americans reviewing what was taking place in the climate and how the mainstream media and how and how teams reviewing it and now it was forcing it was forcing teams into a collision with what they were selling at the ballpark in terms of flags and flyovers in militarization and how these African American players were feeling about what was happening in the community so it was to give the gesture brought these two seemingly disparaged trains together in it brought them together at the ballpark which is another interesting sort of twist to it because the ball park is the place where everyone supposed to get along it's the toy department and sports are supposed to be fun and suddenly sports became the most politicized place in America right now some owners of I was gonna say in any other part of that too is then you add Donald Trump into it and who recognized very quickly that this was a political piece that he could he could exploit for his base and you saw what he did in terms of questioning the player citizenship and questioning whether or not players belonged in the country and and questioning whether or not players is appropriate for players to protest at all obviously when he called them SO Beason twenty seventeen and in September and so they should be fired right didn't help matters in hand exactly right and that they should not even be employed this is explosive powerful undemocratic territory actually suggesting that a citizen and that an employee loses job you take away their employment for disagreeing with something that's taking place in United States and I wrote in the in the book and I just read a quick paragraph to you about how I felt about this I said that trump position dissenting views as unpatriotic at best traitorous at worst both to the United States in general and the comic and the country's armed forces in particular black players such as Colin Kaepernick enjoyed wide support for military members and nationwide black police organizations we're committed to a racket in police brutality but it didn't matter sports if not completely nonpartisan but famously ambivalent to overt political messages was sending its own message through its fans media broadcast partners teams and leagues the American flag did not represent ideals it was supposed to be obeyed and so that's the energy that trump brought to this issue as we've seen ever since the start of his presidency he's used to the players as a wedge between being patriotic and unpatriotic and in a lot of ways it follows a template when it comes to dealing with with African Americans during electoral years once it did I've been saying the other day it it feels like you've gone from welfare queens to Willie Horton and al ball players you know if you take the long view of African American athletes you can go back to an era when they were so out right segregation black for than in it admitted into the league's more are now in coaching staffs some in the front office I think a couple in minority ownership positions do you see a through line of progress and all this are we over the long run moving in a positive direction no we're not and the reason that we're not as because that through line is essentially a math the way that you view sports and it has been this way for years is white owners white coaches white season ticket owners white media black player that is the filter this is how sports is run there is one owner in professional sports who is African American and it's Michael Jordan with the Charlotte Hornets he's the only black owner and that's a sport with an eighty percent black work force the NFL is a seventy percent black work force and yet these players are being muscled into not having political opinions when you look at media media has focused not on the filter of the black athlete in terms of their protest but through their own filter which is through police and through the flag so the player isn't even able to play your spends so much time being frustrated that this is not what their protest is about they can't even explain themselves in a way and that's because the predominately white media does not want to relinquish control of this narrative if they actually listened if it actually listen to the player will be having a very different conversation about these protests and so to say that there's progress is to suggest that some of these are any of these components are changing actually they're not in in baseball front office front office opportunities are becoming less and less possible for African Americans the numbers are actually shrinking they're going away and so it feels like we're going backwards in a lot of ways one of the main issues of this book is the question of black body over black brain the reason why we talk about players is because players were supposed to be this pipeline to education they were supposed to be the pipeline to a better America for the African American player but what you have instead if you have really rich African American athletes a very small percentage of them who have made it can a lot of other players in a lot of other people who haven't and the response to those players the lebron James is and the Dwayne wades in the skin the Colin Kaepernick who actually have made their response to them has been shut up and play shut up and dribble that doesn't sound like progress to me hi Brian thanks so much for speaking with us no my pleasure thank you Howard Bryant speaking to fresh air contributor Dave Davies in twenty eighteen his book from that same year the heritage is about the history of African American athletes and their public reactions to issues of social justice his latest book also focused on sports and racism and injustice was published in January it's called full dissidents notes from an uneven playing field on Monday show Terry's guest will be eve Ewing the author of a book about racial inequality in the Chicago schools and a book of poems called nineteen nineteen about the nineteen nineteen riots in Chicago in the nineteen

"Haven't had a chance to talk with a lot of. People of color especially people are running for office. Who are or politicians elected officials about the what has been going on in the Boston Metro area with black lives. Matter I mean I'm in Milton and there were there variety you know. People don't think like Milton. They think it's a lily white town, which is not, it's very It's actually very racially diverse, and there was a big demonstration on Thursday, very peaceful one and this notion of what's going on like what's the narrative because I feel like? Like already at least Boston is kind of focusing on the violence in the looting, and the you know what I mean, and it's like what what have you seen in Chelsea? What are you seeing in general? As as a as a person of color looking in this moment in general, I think that the media is going to do what the media right, but I think that we have an obligation as leaders to make sure that we're sticking to the facts and the facts here. Are that George Floyd Brianna. Brianna Taylor countless others have been the victim of were victims of a system that has quite frankly left folks behind people of color especially, and so people want to continue to change the subject about looters, and and burning dumpsters and other topics, and we so quick to forget about the black lives that were lost and I think it's important that yes, we can talk about this joint businesses, and yes, we can talk about that stuff, but why don't we just stick? Let's focus right now on what the? The matter is at hand. And how do we fix this systemic injustice that exists that quite frankly has the entire country turns out. How does that work in Massachusetts in Chelsea perspective in a Boston perspective in a Boston Metro area because we are in the Boston Metro area, I mean I'm only eleven miles from right now like if you just take a straight line, so how does that begin to like? How do you take what's happening here in in the Boston area and apply it to the national, movement. We have obligations as elected officials on local levels and on the state level to make sure that we're passing policy that actually addresses some of these issues I think number one is representation one number one demand that the black lives matter movement has had all along is having representation. In the police force that the police force resembles those folks in the community, and that that they were citizen review boards that looked over the actions of Felisa, had complaints filed against them, or you know de escalating practices in that kind of thing I'm here locally yesterday. There was a rumor that there might be a black lives matter protests in Chelsea and some business owners were scared and city leaders were wondering. What do we do? How do we handle this? Want to get out of hand. And there's like this common misconception that people that if unless it's a nonprofit organization that organizing a protest that can easily be contained that any other protesters deemed unruly that protest for black lives somehow poses a threat to business and I'm seeing a Lotta `gate-keeping from people who are leaders as opposed to coming out and and coming up with action steps. Let's create dialogue so that we can talk about how. How systemic, just as within our our area, Code Zip Code. How do we? How do we have these conversations? I don't hear anybody saying those things. Everybody just goes into protecting their position and their reputation, and now's not a time for that now is the time of reflection, and to show compassion and listening to the needs of the community, so stay on Chelsea, because Chelsea's out of they see a largely Latino community. Are People making the connections there. I mean because I think there's also I mean you know between black, and Brown or I think the Latin American sensibility of race in Latin Americans White Supremacist region to I mean. Talking about that in Chelsea or is it? I think that conversation is happening everywhere. Julio about how where anti blackness exists even within our own Latino communities. Everyone is talking about and I. Think this movement is really being by a lot of young people that don't really subscribe to like some of the verbiage that you and I might speak or that. This is a lot more aware than we give them credit for, and you know a couple of years ago, I would've been the one organizing an event, but now it's like these young people are organizing themselves. We gotta let the lead and support. Now police brutality in the Boston area and Chelsea. It's still a thing and. A been told that you experienced an example of that. So when I was a teenager I. Actually was twenty years old, but. I was you know I fell victim to the culture that like the urban culture, the street culture. And I always you know acting a little Rulli but there was a local police officer. That kind of took it personally, Usta bottle me outside of the city. And kind of harass me constantly, and I kept going to the police and filing reports, and and nothing ever happened until one day he finally got his hand me while I was in police custody and I got he hit me over the head with a flashlight had to get stitches transported to the hospital, and then to cover himself, he charged me with assault battery and a police officer, which ultimately I was convicted of and I. I've been holding onto that story for a long time. About about not just my record because I don't want people to use my record against me and disqualify me. As being. Official exactly. But now I'm realizing who am I holding this for like? Why am I holding onto this? This isn't mine to own. These are the stomach injustices that we're talking about. You know this is exactly what we need I did. Everything I was supposed to do. I tried to file complaints, but they but they went. They didn't go anywhere. That's not to say look Chelsea has come a long way from. From a from the corruption that they had back in the ninety, so you know I give them credit for, but a lot of those behaviors still exist than people think because we don't have dead, black or brown bodies on the sidewalks that somehow we're saying from this, but these systemic injustices the way that we interact these power tripping ways in which someone comes talk to get in your car go.
