Skepticism Is Key for Bob Cesca Over Possible Gun Legislation
"Gears what are your thoughts on the gun legislation that may happen in the Senate? That macaw has indicated that he's putting it. Yeah, yeah. I'm still, I think healthily skeptical as to whether or not those ten Republicans who have agreed to support this legislation will actually step up and break the filibuster. When the time comes, now I'm trying not to be cynical about this. I'm just skeptical about because we've been this we've been in this place many, many times. Lucy, I'm just hesitant to become. Yeah, I don't want to be Lucy with the football. Charlie Brown with the football. And because that has happened so many times after sandy hook, the mansion to me amendment, which would have closed all kinds of loopholes in the system. That was filibustered, right? Even though it had bipartisan support, pat toomey was one of the co authors of it. And so in that sense, I'm skeptical as to whether this is going to pass. And I'm looking at a lot of the statements that are coming out through that lens. So with Mitch McConnell, for example, he said he was happy with the framework. Right. Which doesn't yeah, that gives him a lot of wiggle room to say, well, I like the framework, but then they got their talons into it and they started messing with it. They turned it into something that I just can't support and conscious because the Second Amendment, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And so he's got room. You did. The head came out of the shell to make a statement. Yeah. Right. So he's got wiggle room to kind of escape from. He said that he said, he said, if the legislation ends up reflecting what the framework indicates, I'll be supporting it. So right, right. If background checks all of a sudden are added in, nope. That was deliberate. That much, yeah. McConnell's reaction right there. Every word that he said was deliberately placed to give him an escape

Why Is the Media Ignoring the Attempted Assassination of Kavanaugh?
"This is Kevin from Rhode Island, Charlie. What do you make of the assassination attempt against Brett Kavanaugh? Why is the media ignoring this? Or they're ignoring it because that helpful. To mention it, the fact that there was a legit assassination attempt against Brett Kavanaugh and his family. Now we still don't know how the U.S. Marshals knew this person was going to drive up to Brett Kavanaugh's home. I would imagine through cell phone surveillance and all of that. That would be an interesting thing to find out and actually be the best case for the Patriot Act that I've heard in quite some time because I haven't heard a good one in a long time because the Patriot Act and all this stuff seems to just be abused and spying on moms and dads that show up at school board meetings. But this has been bubbling up for quite some time. Remember back in May, Jen Psaki said that protests have been peaceful today, and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes, even though that is a federal crime to go try to influence a Supreme Court opinion outside of a Supreme Court Justice home. Do you think of a bunch of maga hat wearing Trump supporters showed up at katangi Brown Jackson's home? Do you think they would be arrested? Play cut 62. Know that there's an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date. And we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes, and that's the president's position. They continue to encourage it outside of judges homes. And that is the president's position. Thankfully, the U.S. Marshals were there to intercept this soon to be lunatic. The soon to be murderer, he had rope, he had knives, he had a gun,
Green looks to make impact for Warriors even without scoring
"With the NBA Finals tied at two games apiece One of the mysteries is how the Celtics earned their two wins with the cold shooting Jayson Tatum The all star forward is 12 for 40 in the victories including a three for 17 effort in game one But Boston coach eme udoka says there's a lot more to Tatum than his shooting Don't really equate the numbers of how he's shooting more so the result of him making the play and making the right read And so at times it can get frustrating I'm trying to take you out but understanding how loosen everything up you just by making the right play Tatum is averaging 11 assists in Boston's two series wins Four and a half in the losses And despite his shooting woes he's averaging 22.3 points in the finals tying Jalen Brown for the team lead I'm Dave

Gunman Arrested Outside Brett Kavanaugh's Home
"Apparently it seems that there was an armed person that was arrested today that had the intent to go murder Brett Kavanaugh. A 26 year old from California drove all the way across America armed with the intent to go murder a Supreme Court Justice. Now I want you to imagine if a white man with a rifle showed up at katangi Brown Jackson's home with the intent to murder her. Now, for weeks, we are trying to warn people, hey, this whole kind of protesting outside of Supreme Court Justice is homes. This is getting out of control, this is not okay. And praise God, nothing is happening, and we pray nothing will happen. But imagine how the media would cover it otherwise. Violence is never the answer. We have never embraced it on this program. And yet the other side, they tamp dance around the topic of violence every single day.
The Media Capitalizes on the Capitalization of Race
"I'm syndicated by creator syndicate. My column each week. So I wrote black and I see it on the Internet that night after I submitted it. And black is capitalized. Oh God. They edited it to because that is the new rule. So did you insist? Oh, there's never again capitalized why he's not, by the way, they are starting to capitalize white. I am seeing that I don't know if The New York Times is, but I am seeing it more and more often. That's right. By the way, I'm just forgive me. I just curious since they say that Asians are yellow. The yellow race, the red race, it's basically yellow, red. Do they say that? Black brown, I thought so. Well, why do they say Asians are? Well, I was always taught in school that yellow was wrong. It's wrong. Okay, so drop yellow. So red. Is red right for the American Indian? No, I haven't heard that either. What about Brown? Brown is fine. So will they capitalize Brown? That's all I'm asking. I'm curious. Right. I don't know. I've never seen it capitalized. I've never I've seen bipoc. I've seen bipolar. Bipoc is black and indigenous people of color. So I think Brown fits into that category. I have no idea. The thing that I can't understand is why can't these people see, okay, maybe capitalizing one letter isn't a big deal. I mean, of course, I think it is. But can't they see that these small, the seemingly small things indicate huge, huge irrationality, and doesn't that somehow register with them? You know, Dennis and other thing I wonder is I'm having these debates with people my age. And often I say to them, you know, it's very in Vogue for you to support these ideas now. But what if you went to school in your kids had to wear a mask or your kids were being taught these radical gender theories? How would you feel? But I don't know. That's right. We see a lot of parents who are completely fine with it. So maybe that's no, it doesn't work. That's the best observation. That is correct.

Tim Wise: We Have a Dangerous Country Because White Men Wanted Guns
"And Tim wise who's an anti racism educator On the fabulous MSNBC platform Which has the pulse of America The pulse of America He can explain it all Cut four go So the irony is that we now have an incredibly dangerous country for everybody's babies White babies black babies Brown babies everybody's babies because white men a couple hundred years ago decided we needed to have all the weapons that we could possibly have and enshrine that in the constitution to defend against those people and the irony is that now white folks white children white families just as in danger we buy all these weapons in the wake of Obama's election There was a big upsurge in weapons the spokes were all black dudes the president and they're going to come take our guns after Ferguson when Mike Brown was killed the Ferguson uprising every once said we got to go get all these guns And the irony is that that increase in gun ownership did not lead to self defensive use of weapons to prevent burglaries or whatever It led to an increase in suicide and increase in homicide We are a less safe nation for everybody's babies because of this obsession and this obsession goes back hundreds of years You see it's the original seed we need to start over

"brown " Discussed on The Brown Girls Guide to Politics
"To dive into that today. I still get so angry. Yeah. But how are you seeing the way the conversation has shifted from a Kavanaugh to a judge Brown Jackson? And really, you know, from where you're sitting, I know all of us, we can see the sexism and the racism at play, but kind of like at the deeper level where you are, how are you seeing this play out in real time? Yeah, it was, it's been difficult. You know, I think the way Republicans treated Brett Kavanaugh, it was like, I still am so confused by it. There's so many, you know, conservative white male lawyers are a dime a dozen, in D.C.. They could have replaced him easily at any time over the course of that confirmation hearing. But the fact that they stuck with this guy after he had screamed and yelled and cried and had been corrected about his love of beer. Yeah, and you know, and all of this was happening because he was really credibly accused of sexually assaulting someone. And they stuck with him. What a message to send that their desire to overturn roe versus wade and to gut the Voting Rights Act and to make it impossible for the federal government to function. All of that is more important than what we just witnessed as display of sort of bizarre and temperamental behavior from someone who's supposed to be sort of dispassionately interpreting the constitution. And all of these nationwide laws that affect all of us every day, and they stuck beside him, they could have replaced it with anybody else. They had time, you know, to do it. So that really sticks with me even to this day that they really could have pretty easily swapped them out for somebody else without a lot of hassle, but the fact that they stuck with him just really sends such a kind of devastating message to country. But contrast that with how things have been going for kanji Brown Jackson, I mean, even before her name was announced as the nominee, Republicans were attacking. You know, the nominee. She didn't even exist yet, but they were already sort of recently in sexist saying, oh, she's not going to be qualified or she isn't intelligent or she's an affirmative action pick or she's a diversity hire, which by the way, obviously nothing wrong with affirmative action. But the point that they're trying to make a broader narrative, like meta narrative about how people of color are quote unquote stealing opportunities from more qualified white people. It's not true. It isn't happening, but she hadn't even been named yet when they were already pursuing this line of attack. And then after she was named, it was weird. We saw a little bit of a shift, we've seen pretty positive reports coming out of the meetings that she's going around the Senate as we speak kind of taking courtesy meetings with every single senator. And even the Republican senators have nice things to say about her. They might not ultimately vote in favor of her nomination, but they are saying a lot of nice things. About her and her temperament in her experience as a judge. We've really only seen two attempts one for Marco Rubio and one from Josh hawley. To really smear her character. So two out of 50 is not bad, I guess. But all that to say, we'll see how this plays out in her confirmation hearings where we expect Josh hawley and Ted Cruz and a bunch of other Republicans to kind of make this a big story about how she's soft on crime or she's a proponent of critical race theory, you know, really doing a lot of dog whistles to the base about how she's scary and can't be trusted. And all of that is very firmly rooted. In racism and sexism and obviously not how they treated Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, or Neil Gorsuch. Yeah, we know they're going to have Tucker Carlson doing a lot of their bidding for them. I mean, I completely lost my mind when he went the LSAT route. And I'm like, really? And now a quick word from our sponsor. After voters turned out in historic numbers in 2020,.

"Don't have like honestly word a point where we don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow. Like i- i- legit don't know whereas before the shutdown like people would say metaphorically like well you know tomorrow's not promise deliver today and you would feel it on like a certain level but now i feel it and i know that on a cellular level like i do not know what's gonna happen tomorrow. I don't. i don't know it's happened politically. I don't know what's going to happen. You know news wise. I don't know what's gonna happen regarding kovic like are we do for the killer locus warm. That should be experienced clip point of it all in body like this is. I'm playing devil's advocate. But this is like a small part of my brain that i'm constantly trying to talk down off the ledge is like what's the point in saving. Why don't you just blow your money now. Like i mean on what really. But you know he'll financially people are and unite talked about this to like the sense of The structure that you have with your budget like even something as simple as household budget seems to feel so silly or like doesn't really compute with today's world. So how can you adjust like mentally how you look at your finances and your financial planning so much of that has to do with the future which none of can predict right now. A lot of it like we were talking before a lot of for me budgeting very tied into myself worth because budgeting involves money and i have. We're in a capitalistic. We're a capitalist society. so i have often times equated. More money equals better. Better self worth which is really terrible in hindsight for me to have even thought that. But that's really what we're taught right. I would say that. I'm sorry asking that question again because i totally forgot my money. Are we like to call the older. I'll be like you talked about. And then i'm like wait. Why the future future. How do we lake today. When it's so hard for us to like remind like wanda we're talking. Tiffany imagines herself in the future as wanda and she does is for wanda a wanna can be happy. You rely low wanda lie. I got you wanda sound like a sassy. 'cause i wanna cussing always i've always. I've always contended my spirit. Animal shannon Yeah because honestly i mean and that's that's kind of a good point to make right now. Shannon was is. I'm guessing she's still alive in our consciousness. Sinead is a small business owner. She does very well with her salon. She has support. She had on kilo and other friends. And every you know and she every so often she got so you know have fun but for the most part and it was a hard worker. So i think you know if i imagined myself as bar is character character. Rca like that that. Actually i mean real talk. That honestly is probably what i'm going to do when i get off this phone call because i do need to like work on my budget but i think that that's a good thing to do. Like what like imagining yourself as want. Yes it's you. I mean we're kind of used to in this day and age with social media imagining ourselves as an avatar but he there's something in psychiatry psychology that we call Like like when you when. I'm talking to somebody. Let's say who's experiencing depression or has in the past and i will sometimes ask questions to determine if their goal oriented or future oriented right. A lot of us are not goal or future oriented right now. Because we don't know what's going to happen from day to day but if we can kind of imagine ourselves not as our aren't going to be my best self run this marathon thousand rise on peleton this like it's not that it's not a not like goal oriented like i hit this goal. It's more so needs to be about imagining yourself in a happy place despite what's going on because we are we're in a new normal. It's not going to be the same way as it was before it's it isn't i mean i don't know anybody personally who would feel comfortable walking around without a mask like in the airport in a restaurant in like anything like that so i think it is. I think it's good to focus on. What do i like. I want to be someone who is at peace. I wanna be someone who definitely feels confident and when it comes to budgeting. I know that i was having a hard time last month because i actually was starting to slip back into having some anxiety and depression and so I was telling mandy this yesterday. I was like you know i like. There are some bills that they were like a mining. You're gonna pay these bills are like because you usually do and now you're not and it was because i was just so cloudy with my thoughts because some of my depressive in my depression anxiety symptoms came back and honestly i would say over the past two weeks. I had my medication adjusted like i had increased. I have been more go with the flow. Like water off a duck's back. But i was. I mean seriously like stressing embiid like tim. You didn't pay eighteen and t. cell phone bill. I look at you like like you like you really fucked up right now and it's not that serious. It's not. It's just that i needed to get to a better place where i felt better so i think that when it comes to budgeting it's it's important but i'm going to have to change my budget to reflect the fact that i don't go nowhere i don't have to I don't have to include my restaurant. the restaurant portion of my budget where i usually use now. I will say this last month. When i wasn't feeling that great i was. I was like oh nobles on pulse means word okay like it's like oh that's going to cover it up but then i ended up feeling bad about it later because i was like. You don't need to do that. So i think we need to really look at the budget or new normal budget as things that we need not necessarily to feel happy and great because i bought a lot of dumb shit and i'm like where you wanna go with them sneakers nowhere like you don't need these things but i think we really need to just look at. How can we make things easier for us. How do we need to outsource certain things are budget. Allow for that. Because it wasn't really until so like maybe last year that i was like. Oh i really need to like outsource these things like. There are things that i can afford to outsource or you know they were even things that i would barter for other with other people with other people with so i think we need to get to a point or people hopefully can get to a point where they feel they feel better about themselves and that really might involve someone talking to a mental health therapist or mental health clinician or psychiatrists psychologists. What have you but also talking about like what are the things that make me me. What are the and maybe. What are the negative coping strategies that i was using before the pans before. Kovin that i've carried with me into this pandemic snacks. yes been. What are you thinking over there. As it's been thinking that like one of the what i love. Well i guess if there is any bright side to all of the starkness is 'how comfortable people have gotten talking about therapy and suggesting therapy to each other. And when i main people i mean black folks. That never was a thing. It was agreed to pray. No one talked about there and It's just become like. I said it to someone the other day i was like. Yeah well you don't have considered therapy delegate like yeah Even like my church. France which is like i mean that was never a thing like abbas super cheap friend and she was my therapist. Today was so great. And i just thought you know if there is a bright side is the fact that people are understanding that you need help and that going to therapy is not a replacement for god and prayer and that they can work in tangent in tandem together. Thank you Know and i'm loving people like sarah roberts robert. She says that all the time which i love because so many people look up to her teed. Td jake's daughter and so yeah so. I guess i was just thinking about that because quite honestly i've been dragging my feet. I've been using a therapist. I want a black woman for the longest just to there are what i do have several companies that i want. It can be really stressful. And sometimes. I don't even know that i'm stressed until i'm like. Yeah so once less than you slept fully you know so just having a place to. Because i'm like the go-to for everyone. This little thompson and i feel like i'm everyone's pulling finger a tow. Yes i'm just like well. What people are like text you. I'm like i had fifty unread text. Texas new email emmy so yeah so i mean i just think that if anything else it just tiffany to find a therapist.

"Well let's talk about healthy ways of coping. I mean you mentioned sort of like you want to control something so like what are the things we can do to bring back some sense of normalcy in control in our lives when everything feels like. It's bat shit crazy right. So i think the first thing to to do is and this is kind of a hard. The hardest thing to do is to admit that your stress admit that you're anxious and make your depressed. Admit that you can't sleep at mitzi yourself that you know even though we've been in this for a long time we're now at the point where we're quote unquote used to it. We're not on like a fundamental level. But it's like okay. today's monday i'm gonna do this. I look at my schedule. I'm going to do that but it's not an ideal situation so admitting that you have an issue admitting that you are not comfortable like things are not right to the point where it might be interfering with your day to day and and interfering with your mental wellbeing is key after that i would think that the best thing to do is for for someone to talk to someone they trust. Because you'd be surprised. And i'm i'm speaking as somebody who has a history of depression anxiety. You'd be surprised. I was really surprised. At how helpful. It was to get my feelings out of my body and when you're dealing with depression and anxiety a lot of it is guilt driven is like well. I don't want to burden this person. You know with my personal issues because they are going through all this stuff too and you know what if that person is a real real friends you and they really care about you and love you. They'll listen to you and they'll you know kinda help you through it and that person might also be going through things and you could also serve as berezin for that for your friend a loved one to be like you know like i. Let's talk about this I think the third thing to do is to really set a routine and and mandy you. And i spoke yesterday and i definitely agreed with you at the time like i like routine versus schedule like a schedule. Sounds like oh this. Is my class schedule for the day. Like these are things that like. I have to do. But i don't really want to do versus a routine which is like. Oh i'm gonna wake up at this time. Because that's when i wanna wake up or that's when i might need to wake up it's a routine to me. Sounds i mean it's semantics but it sounds like it's more. It's something that i can control. It's more manageable. So you know depending upon the person's lifestyle or what they need to do. I mean i remember. In the beginning of the panic. I actually was trying to schedule like cocktail hour during during the early evening. Like i can really not. Yeah like maybe not even drinks like canapes. Like something i was like. I need something to just make my day feel like oh look at this. We're having a good time right. And then i think the other thing that people really need to consider end as terrible as pandemic has been for a lot of people. The one thing that has really been great about it is that there are actually. It's actually easier to get hooked up with mental health services because most mental health clinics aren't open but they do see patients or cl or referrals or clients via apps via video chat via telephone even so it really has at least in psychiatry and psychology whereas telemedicine or telehealth was something that some of us were into like. Now we all to be into it because if if that's if we don't get used to it we don't get acclimated to a. We're not gonna have patience. We're not going to be able to treat people and happy to help. People feel better the way that we need to right now. And i think the i think the last thing and this is gonna sound. You know kind of obvious like half an obvious but you know. I tell people tell. My patients like you know if you if you don't have a preexisting medical condition that's preventing you from going outside like go outside. Let go outside. Because i as an introvert oust. I love being in house. I'll stay in house all day long. But when i finally like okay we gotta go outside. I'm like oh my god it's on out here like look look at this. I look at these trees. I can feel the air now right now in l. a. and in california like the whole state on fire so sometimes there's like yeah maybe don't dis my out there. Yeah like yeah. I've been in the house for the past like four or five days. So i'm starting to feel a little bit antsy but you know i think exercise is important like you like we really need to find what we can do to increase our levels of serotonin in our brains so that we don't end up dipping into depression anxiety but unfortunately a lot of us have it almost brings up another another important point. You've mentioned guilt. And shame and i feel like there was something that happened with the pandemic where people who were at home. It wasn't just like let's go outside. It's like oh i'm gonna. This is what. I'm going to train for a marathon or i'm gonna learn how to a minister traffic on. I always wanted to do myself personally. I gotta peleton and now it's something that unlike. Oh why am i not on the peleton. Why would one hundred rides yet. And it's almost like you can take these little things make you feel better but then that becomes the stick that you beat yourself with a little bit when it comes to like guilt. Shame so how do we like talker that. How can we just give ourselves a break for not going so over the top of this extra time that we perceive that we have. And you know like there's this idea that you can win quarantine by learning a new hobby or language Why why are mean not to ourselves. We're doing ourselves because we were so go. Go go before the shutdown. So i remember distinctly. I'd wake up. I go work out at six. Am i come home. Help my son with his lunch and make him breakfast. Take him school. Come back home..

"But now i love it ten years two thousand and five fifteen years. No two thousand nine so two hundred nine finished my fellowship in forensic psychiatry so since then pretty much. I've been treating psychiatric patients so you are well so business. Must be booming. I'm yes business is booming. I would say. I mean like straight up when this all this happens like i freaked out like everybody else. 'cause it was basically it was like friday and i'm out here in la so it was like i think it was march thirteenth or something like that friday. It was like Okay so we're probably going to be on quarantine and i was like okay. Well i don't really know what that means. Like as it pertains to me and then monday. We were all locked down and i was like. Oh my god. Do i have a job. What do i going to do. So i pretty much been exclusively seeing patients via telehealth so either by video conferencing or by via telephone In is business booming. Yes i i work at a hospital. I am the medical director. Also the chief medical officer at a mental health hospital out here in los angeles called gateways hospital and the patients. That i see because i have a forensic psychiatry background. These are patients who came from jail or came from the state mental hospital. They might have committed some really like really agreed crimes but it was due to their symptoms from mental illness. So i basically get them stable and keep them stable so it hasn't it hasn't necessarily increase for me. It's it just. I had to change the mode with agitated the motive how i was seeing my patients which honestly really i really liked being honestly i mean i think we both talk the helper introverts The section between mental health. and the. what's happening right now. I mean everything happening in the world is just a lot right now and i feel like it is the exact right moment to have you on because for like five or six months into this thing and i was telling tiff like we really haven't taken a step back to pause and examines. How has this affected us all. So i mean what would you say. I know that your you know your patients have like you were saying you know severe mental illness. But what can you break down like mentally sort of what it is. What's happening to us. What's going on. Why anxieties up. It feels like people who had maybe low grade depression before probably more prone to having it pop up now. I mean like tiff. How's it been for you. Like i feel like we just need someone to explain to us what's happening and how we can cope. Yes it's been There were especially in the beginning. At first i was like i'm good. I'm good i'm good. I'm good you know and then there's just been this week of good not good not good in. I remember. Last night. I was scrolling through social and i literally had to say no. My husband wanted somebody one of those videos. We all know what i mean. What we mean by like you know. Black den lack beaten bodies and i said honestly babe i've refuse i refute. I'm not looking at anymore those videos. I'm not it's too much. it's too much in Yeah that's how. I'm feeling that. I'm feeling that i'm feeling in a place where i feel like. I'm striving hard to protect my piece because it's just all too much. Yeah i am. I have always known that. I'm not good with seeing people in the act of being hurt or being tortured. I i don't want to invite that into my space. I'm now i'm fine with picking up the pieces in helping someone after the fact but if for me i need to know is is okay. So tell me what happened. Okay great those defects all right. Now how do we get better. I haven't watched one video. Probably since i'm not even lying. Probably since rodney king. I'm like. I'm not wash initiative like i'm not i don't need to invite that in some space so i'll look at the news like Not look at it. But i'll read the news from my news app on my phone for like fifteen minutes and a day. And then that's it because everything else is like speculative conjecture and things that i don't know if you guys have been noticing this but like the news that that bubbles up through the cova cracks if you will is some wild shit because i take away the headlines from kobe's wild. I saw us like apparently. There's li- i mean it's summertime but you know kids in cars overheating and dying. Some there was some woman who kills grandparents. Like it's just it's so much weird nest. That's going on so i purposefully dull like if there's a video i'm like i'm watching that i'm not dry. Mc it's all it's reckoning ravening where we're having. Yeah i i can talk. We're having with the reality of what. It's like to be black in america black and brown america and that is happening at the same time. We're like everyone's lives are at risk in the world's on fire in the pandemics. I mean so. You mentioned hiller locusts. I'm just kidding. There's no there's killer wasps or something right like i. There's aliens on venus today. I was aliens on venus. Can we join them do they. You know are you. Can i apply for admission. I don't know that. But i was like in the earn me. I'm like. Is that possible. Because i think venus is like a gashes planet but whatever whatever again let's not even focus on that 'cause i'm nerd honor it out so let's my knowledge of venus is like sailor moon from that goes but fifteen minutes a limiting news. I think that's something that i i need to do that..

"Hate that. Oh my goodness you can find out. Civil website arianna brown dot com. You can find all of my stuff on there. You can just type my name into youtube Because i come from a slam poetry background so a lot of my stuff. You can find just anywhere. Arianna the poet if you have a hard time looking for me poet and then arianna brown on youtube and are brown dot com. But your book. We are owed on which people can preorder now to questions like you know what is the back. You know the the the sleeve introduction to the book right what would like what's the hook for it and then what was the process of conceptualizing. The you know the art. How did you come about. Like i'm gonna write about all these things. Put them together right Was it intuitive. With just like in a work across the ages on years like this all i can make it work together Yeah it was definitely not a work across the ages. Everything that i wrote for. This project was specifically written for this manuscript. There's a ton of stuff that didn't make it into it as well but this book is Six years in the making so it's been a very intentional research driven processes putting this together. The basic introduction to the book is that called we are owed period And it's about for me relationships between black people in the spaces through which i've lived most of my life right so mostly in central texas but also in places like houston and galveston where my family is from And also in mexico city where. I took a six week study abroad a few years ago. And so it's a lot of through my own. Loneliness talked about growing up on the south side of san antonio But i was also the only black person in my house in my neighborhood In most of the schools that i attended. I was the only person limit study abroad trip to mexico city in so i think for a long time i have been looking for other black people who are in those same spaces as me And i'm very interested in the origin. Stories of how we came to be in those places So history from me is a way to explore how we got here and what the conditions of our lives are here right how we are perceived how we are treated by others Because there is a legacy of that right like you can't talk about blackness in texas or in mexico without also talking about the transatlantic slave trade All of the and all of the history that happened between then and now and how. It's really Unending right like those links are there. You just have to look for them and so a lot of the poems. I mentioned that their research driven. I have a foundation. Degree in african african diaspora studies as well as mexican american studies and when i entered mexican. American studies classrooms. I had a lot of questions Because i feel like i feel like in academia but also just like any the world at large tend to talk about let the next history and black history as though they are two separate things but when you come from a place like texas where black people and spanish descended. People have been in constant proximity for very long time. It's kind of ridiculous to think about them as two separate histories right and so this book was me kind of looking through documents reading histories of enslavement in texas and in mexico in trying to find some kind of precedent for for black life in these places and put that in relation to my own stories my own personal stories of growing up in in moving through these places as a way of finding community nelson understanding myself. I think that historical part is the thread in a lot of ways that binds together I like the you quote not only like radical thinkers but also your own critical thoughts in what i assume what i perceive to be the introduction to each section right like you have a manteca quote you have your own analysis in the first part you have a wikipedia entry in another So it is both like this artistic expression and also this like presentation of research findings I see working together. And i think that communicates immediately to me. Is that like history like this. You know social cultural study of things like these are not objective. Things like you have. They are the way received them. The way there are communicated are completely informed by who is telling the story right return. I think one of the pieces that spoke to me One of the examples of like the introduction to To research are to the different sections is when you began talking about Esteban one of the slave enslaved people introduced by not of. Is a who participated in the first expedition to set foot in texas right. And then you you continuously Bring them up when talking about like year more and and so forth. How was it like. How did it feel to discover this part of black history and also how did it feel to incorporate it or like. How did you decide to incorporate him into your work. Yeah yeah no. That's a good question. i mean. I think something that that feels not try to say. But it's something that's really common. I think when you're studying archive of slavery Is that when you find out about Person who you want to learn more about their is i'm either. There's very little documentation about them or the documents that you can find a very fragmented right. And they're never written from that person's perspective always the person who owned them About them or Or some kind of colonial official writing about that person so you never get these like Diary entries or or things that the person themselves wrote. And so when i found the story of esteban was actually in a class with much at ut austin it was of course that was the kind of chronicle the history of the conquest right and so on is part of that story Because he was in saved by below they've never not us. Who is a spanish colonizer. Cookies was trying to map. Texas florida and the us south west and so on was brought along this trip with..

"I want it to get back to the basics today and pray the Lord's prayer that Jesus taught in Matthew six verses 10 through 13. I like the NLT and the Modern English versions. So I've combined them because they both have of course the same intent. Our Father in Heaven, may your name be kept holy your kingdom come your will be done on Earth as it already is in heaven give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us and don't let us yield to temptation but rescue us from the evil one for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Speaking of prayer. I am loving the prayer edition of black history boot camp with girltrek. Their mission is to encourage black women to walk for thirty minutes a day for five days a week as a form of self care and for their mental physical and spiritual health It is a walking podcast and in the prayer addition, they share information about spiritual Warriors from black history for 21 days. It's been really powerful and you can sign up for free month at black history bootcamp.com. When is the episodes they celebrated Maya Angelou and Oprah actually shared on that episode a poem that Maya Angelou reads as a gift to her and speaking of my Angelou's poems. I actually did a bonus episode back in April of one of her beautiful piece is called on the pulse of morning. So if you haven't had a chance to listen to it, it's only fifteen minutes long. Check it out and let me know what you think. Something that has brought some levity to this current season for me is watching Maya Rudolph who is one of my favorite sketch comedians off behind Kim Wayans playing Senator Kamala Harris the Vice Presidential nominee on SNL you can pull up any of the clips on YouTube app, if you need a good laugh also during the vice presidential debate. Senator Kamala Harris gave the rallying cry for every black woman when her opponent continued to interrupt her home with two simple words I'm speaking. Lastly as a basketball enthusiasts. I was inspired by seeing the LA Lakers led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis take home. The championship wage. This Lakers team was really special to me because there were so many NBA veterans like Dwight Howard, Danny Green and Rajon Rondo. I respect LeBron and all that. He's achieved in his Seventeen years in the NBA. He shattered so many records and for him to still be playing at the level that he does considering his age is just incredible. I am actually more inspired by how he uses his platform off the court for justice and equality like establishing the organization more than a bulb my cousins and I had a zoom call recently and I was wearing my LeBron shirt which led to the ultimate conversation about whether or not he is the goat and I don't have time to get into that today, but I will share a couple quick thoughts one. I don't think it's fair to compare him because each generation of basketball players are playing at a different level and a different climate. And so I think that Michael Jordan is the goat of his generation and LeBron James is the goat of his generation and I actually did a bonus episode this summer with a panel of women dissecting the Last Dance documentary. About Michael Jordan and the 1998 championship Bulls team. And the name of that episode is called the Kings and Queens of quarantine part 2 and so I definitely celebrate Michael Jordan's impact on the game which still reverberates off this day during LeBron. James is acceptance speech. He was very diplomatic and he said I want my respect to I thought about it from this perspective if you've been in your career for Seventeen years and you are still at the height of your career, but no matter what you accomplished people continued above your level of greatness and what you still need to achieve. I think most people would also get to the point that he did in that moment, which was to demand the respect that he deserves because his resume speaks for itself, and he's not finished yet. Speaking of greatness. I am so excited to dive into my interview with another brilliant brown girl abroad. Tiffany green wage has been working in multiple countries for the last few years as a counselor and an educator for think Global School. When I knew that that was going to be celebrating brown girls abroad this season. This person is one of the first women that I thought of that I knew I wanted to join in this conversation because she is an actual Globetrotter and I'm not talking about the basketball players. I'm talking about a brilliant young black woman who has been literally everywhere who found a way to marry her passion for education and traveling abroad can get someone to pay her to do both. She's been featured in travel and War and we actually met over ten years ago in May and we've stayed connected and so I am elated to welcome to Brown girl Radiance podcast counselor. educator and author Tiffany green Hello, how are you? Awesome be very very excited to chat with you today. And thank you so much for taking time out of your your globe-trotting to check with me for a few minutes. So you can blame covid-19 taking care of you mean. I'm happy here. I was thinking about when you said we met over ten years ago we met when President Obama was inaugurated and who knew that literally twelve years later or eleven years later. I moved on this call super cool, right? Yeah. I know. We we definitely met in the Golden Age of of our nation. I would say suck so much has changed since then, but if you don't mind just sharing a little bit about yourself and your background and what time LED you to your current role and all of your travels abroad cool. So let's see. My my intro pitch is kind of all over the place. So I am Tiffany long as you mentioned and I'm from Connecticut. So good on New England cold weather.

"But first. Let me start by Spain. What kinda forever. Chadwick Bozeman. Changed my life forever when he took on the role of the Black Panther. He went home to heaven when he passed away on August twenty eighth, he was diagnosed with Stage three colon cancer in two thousand sixteen. I started thinking about his body of work because he's played so many iconic characters and I went to look at his I M D. To see what movies he's been in. Since his cancer diagnosis in two thousand sixteen. And I found that he was in nine films. I still remember seeing him in twenty thirteen. In the movie forty two where he portrayed the legendary barrier breaking baseball player Jackie Robinson. He Played The godfather of Soul James Brown he's also played Thurgood Marshall the first Black Supreme Court justice. Chadwick both men was intentional about sharing black stories. Recently movie theaters have been encouraging people to return. So they started showing classic movies at a reduced price with enhanced. Here's. I saw the Black Panther was a part of the offering and I want to see the movie again. So the day before his death. Seemingly on a whim I went to the movie theater with the friend and we saw Black Panther on the big screen, which is my favorite way. To view this film. We had theater all to ourselves. So we were having a blast and being very interactive. Many of you know that in two thousand, eighteen, I was so moved by this movie that I saw it multiple times I was inspired by the beauty intellect and the strength. Of, the women of what Kinda which led me. With a nudging from the Lord to start this podcast. I dedicate my entire first season. To discussing the themes from this movie in how each woman was a pillar for the Black Panther. While I will always celebrate the women of what Kanda in doing. So inherently, I will also celebrate Chadwick Bozeman portrayal of the Black Panther because he was a real life superhero on and off the screen. And he celebrated those fierce black women in their strength and he knew that just like in what Kanda Strong black kings and Queens can rule together. I have watched. Many of Chadwick's speeches and. He was always sharing mini sermons. During an interview for the N. Double ACP awards, he shared the following thoughts about purpose. The funny thing about purpose is it unfolds to you more and more every day. So you can be living in what was revealed to you in a particular time, and then you might get stagnated because there is more that you are supposed to do. It doesn't just stop as you do one thing. So I. Think it's just being open to what you are supposed to do at this moment without getting stuck in the past because purpose is not related to career. Purpose is not related to a job. It's related to what God put inside you that you are supposed to give to the world. You can do that in various different positions and forms. So it's staying open to what that estimates is at all times. Thank you, Chadwick. For, fulfilling your purpose despite being in pain. I know that you are in heaven, which is the ultimate form of. Forever While I'm celebrating black men who have served our culture. Through their pain. I want to also honor the civil rights icon John Lewis who passed away in July from pancreatic cancer. I saw the documentary about his life called good trouble and it was so inspirational. He is an American treasure who spent sixty five years fighting for civil rights in voting rights he never retired. He started when he was fifteen and he's done so much for our nation's progress including literally. Getting a concussion from officers while doing. Peaceful protests in being on the forefront of lunch counter sit INS. John Lewis was also an architect for the march on Washington. He authored the legislation for the National Museum of African American history and culture, which is one of my favorite places to visit. When I'm in DC, he was arrested forty five times. During his lifetime while peacefully protesting. and John Lewis was wise enough to understand one way that he could address. The problems of our nation was to become a legislator in he served in Congress for thirty three years. Even after his cancer diagnosis. He continued to serve our country until the end. I I think about his life and how I WanNa make sure that all his work is not in vain. The infamous quote that he consistently shared is never be afraid to make some noise and get into good trouble. Necessary trouble. Speaking. Of good trouble. I also have to give a shout out to the NBA for boycotting their playoff games in response. To the shooting. Of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin. The Milwaukee Bucks Lead this movement in response to the events that happened in the state that they represent. Also the WNBA the MLB. And Black Girl. Magic tennis player Naomi. Asaki. Also boycotted their games and matches. In response to this injustice. Before they resumed playing, the NBA was able to get some progressive commitments from their leadership. For, example. All of their home court locations where possible will become holing locations. Or? Host voter registration drives, or become a ballot collection point. So the Staples Center will be voting location and Lebron James through his organization called more than a vote. He was able to secure the dodgers stadium as voting location as well. I. Applaud. These athletes using their platforms. To, fight for justice. And This is Brian grow radiance. I know that I've highlighted a lot of men, but sometimes you know we have to celebrate them to. Before. We dive in to. This episode. I do have a couple of black queens who inspired me this past. First. Brandy. Who? Her seventh album called be seven, and it's an instant classic amongst brandy fans. In my friends who know me know that I love Brandy and she is one of my favorite artist of all time. I went to see her on Broadway a few years ago when she started in Chicago and I had the opportunity to meet her after the show. The version of. Cinderella. With Brandy and Whitney. Is One of my favorite movies of all time. Also. The day after brain, these new album was released. Started streaming on Netflix. So I would say it's been a great month for Brandy, additionally, the instagram versus battle between Brandy and Monica will be on August thirty first. So I am very excited about that. I could go on about brandy but. I will wait until I'm. To interview her one day on Brown Grenadians podcast. So if you know someone who can make that happen let me know. additionally I want to. Make sure to acknowledge. The beautifully stunning black artistry. Of. The visual. Black is king by beyond say. The music is from Lion. King the gift, which is the album that she released last year after starring in the live action version. Of the movie. Right now I wish that I could play the song. Brown. skinned. Girl for for you rate here on Brown girl radiance it would be perfect but I don't have beyond same money. Yet. So for now, the lyrics will will have to suffice so. I'll just say brown skinned girl. Your skin just like pearls. The best thing in the world never trade you for anybody else. To all my listeners. I absolutely would not trade you for anybody else. And with that. Let's travel. So the next place on Brown.

So that would mean we went only have seen four women on a major presidential ticket. . And in a year where we're celebrating the one hundred anniversary of the nineteenth amendment and women getting the right to vote. . It was exciting for that reason but also for the fact that. . We're finally realizing you can't win without women. .

What we want for women and she's the first black woman Indian woman to be on this ticket is going back to the nineteenth amendment. . It technically gave women the right to vote, , but we know that women of color. . Blind. . Brown indigenous women didn't get full voting rights until after nineteen, , sixty five. . So, for , Black Brennan Indigenous Women, , it hasn't been a whole one hundred years of suffrage a for one hundred years of the women's right movement in this country. . To see a black woman, , an Indian woman essentially that. . Is absolutely amazing and I'm so on cloud nine about the pick. . How do you feel like the coverage has been thus far of the pick. . So we're we're recording this. . It hasn't even been twenty four hours. . Since interrupt but. . I'M NOT GONNA lie I'm already exhausted by the racism and sexism. . Efi weeks that grow some other black women and myself created the Hashtag win with black women and it wasn't response to the negative coverage. . We not only saw about sooner Harris but all of the other women who were potential BP picks. . Just how they were being absolutely torn apart. . In the press, , it was the exact same thing that we had seen. . What? ? Secretary? ? Clinton. . And we came together because we immediately wanted to call it out. . We were going to say you are not about to do this. . Again, , you are not about to disqualify and be horrible to these women because of your issues with. . And sexism and we wanted to stand with those women in particular black women who are being considered, , and over the past few days we've seen more people put out statements about the media and how they need to make sure that they're not being racist and sexist in their coverage other organizations popcorn to get behind the woman vp whoever was going to be, , and that was just really important. . We knew that we needed to be ready and I'm seeing all of these women come together. . But just in the past few hours from. . Press interviews that I've done a panel that I've been on tweets and I'm seeing people already discrediting or Harris. . One tweet a man stand. . Oh, , she should be or all that stuff without Franken happened because that opened up the seat the judiciary people got to see her through the cabinet hearing and that put her on the national stage and I'm like. . Really. . That's it. . That's the reason. . Why Kamla Is the. . I in a press interview where someone said, , well, , black people don't like Homeland Harris. . Black voters aren't behind her. . NATO them tell me why black voters aren't behind her and said, , well, , I talked to a couple of young black women and they don't like her and they said so those couple of young black women represent every single black person in the united. .

With a black Republican woman and she made the comment about how they just find it ridiculous that all of these black women are now supporting Kamla for vp that didn't support her for president. . So how she qualified to be BP, , she wasn't qualified to be president. . And that one really got to me. . And I had to let her know that when there's all these men who are running for president drop out and gets elected to the VP. . We never say those things always say as great pit 'cause they have all this experience they're going to bring so much to their role are if Men is picked to be in the cabinet. . That is awesome. .

"I wanted to give my listeners. The background on how this came about I attended an incredible conference called the podcast movement. Back in August one of the things that I heard throughout the sessions is the best way to grow. Your podcast is to of course have quality content but also build community so after the conference. I was in reflection and I asked the Lord. How can I build community? And he told me to start incorporating some devotional episodes. I knew it would be a stretch for me but at the same time I recognize that since the name of my podcast was called. Brown girl radiance. I thought about what the source of the radiance is and it is God. I will continue to bring all of the content that you've enjoyed and as the Lord leads I will incorporate some bonus devotional episodes when God gave me this challenge. Initially I told him okay. I promise I'll get to work on it in twenty twenty then last month. He gave me a word and I started writing it down. And I'm very excited to share with you all now. I've found that when we are speedy with the first thing that God tells us to do he will lead us the rest of the way. The name of this episode is called the treasure in.
