HRC's Alphonso David on the Fight for LGBTQ Equality
"Alphonso david. Welcome to the podcast. Thank you thank you so much for having me. Jonathan okay so You are the president of the human rights campaign the largest lgbtq so rights organization in the country. And as such. Mr president ask you. What is the state of lgbtq plus america right now. The state of lgbtq america right now is strong. We have more than seventy percent of voters in this country that supported quality. We have more than two thirds of americans in this country that oppose lgbtq rights. Unfortunately that message is not being delivered to the elected officials in state offices across the country. We have more than two hundred and fifty bills have been introduced in state legislatures around the country. More than two hundred and fifty anti lgbtq bills. These are bills. There are seeking to deny our very existence. These are bills that are seeking to deny transgender people from using restrooms consistent with their gender identity from playing in sports consistent with their gender identity denying public school teachers the ability to teach about lgbtq issues using religion as a way to discriminate against lgbtq people. So unfortunately we are in a position today where we have elected officials in states across the country more than forty states that have introduced anti lgbtq bills that do not honor the principles of our democracy and certainly ignore the will of the people more than seventy percent. That do support equality.

Mock Draft 1.1: Houston Rockets
"Let's start with the houston rockets. They are one of three teams with the best shot of having the number one pick in the draft over fourteen percent chance of the number one. Pick a fifty two point one percent chance of winning a top four. Pick one of things that's relevant for the rockets is that if they don't get a top four pick in the draft. They must send their picked the oklahoma city thunder and so right now fifty two point one percent chance they pick it. It's it's really fifty fifty that the rockets even have their pick this year and thunder could potentially have to top five picks. And we'll talk about that a second when we get to the thunder but assuming for a minute that they get the number one pick in the draft. I have the number one on. Big board are sorry. I'm mock draft one point one km cunningham and i'll just say this about kate cottingham it is looking more and more likely that he is going to be the number one pick in any scenario that we can really think about it. Discuss right now he he. It seems like every team and scout. That i'm talking to the league has caved cunningham number one. I mean we'll see more on on lottery night on who actually gets the number one pick in which way it may go. But it's looking highly likely that cape cunningham is going to be the number one pick in the draft regardless of who draft where and certainly for the rockets. he fits indeed It's really a no brainer to have a versatile wing with his feel for the game and the way he can see the floor the way he can defend multiple positions. I think he's a no brainer for the rockets. But i could also say that about a lot of the other teams there so right now and mock draft one point one. The rockets get cade cunningham.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal on What Progressives Think of Joe Biden Now
"Congresswoman giant. Paul thank you very much. For coming to the podcast. It's great to be with you. Jonathan okay so. President biden just gave a joint session speech to the american people where he outlined a huge agenda. Very forward-looking agenda of for the american people in for his presidency. You're the chair of the progressive the congressional progressive caucus all during the campaign. All the talk was about. How progressives didn't want joe biden and wants to biden and got elected How progressives were going to be giving joe biden the blues and they're going to be fighting with him since you are the chair of the progressive caucus. What grade would you give him. Well you know what i have said. Is that progressives have helped define this moment. The campaign last year was an example of that the push over the last ten years for a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage by progressive says actually made mainstream today so jonathan i always say progressives are the first to the best and most just idea and then we have to push like hell to get everybody else there. But joe biden has risen to the moment And i think you know. He came into office recognizing the crises of racial inequality of the pandemic of unemployment. So many things that americans never thought we would see food lines around the block as he talked about in his speech and he has come out with a very bold agenda of very progressive agenda. He has taken the virus under control. in a way that you know we only had dreamed about last year but now two hundred million shots in arms in just ninety nine days we feel like there's a light at the end of the tunnel so so far joe biden has been doing a very good job on on the present in the presidency and now we just have to make sure that that continues that he leans into it just as much with the american jobs and families plan which by the way we want to be one package that he leans into even things that are going to be difficult which he has done with tax reform. But even bigger than that. Jonathan i think what progressives are most excited about is that finally there is a frame for the conversation that has been the progressive blends for a very long time and that is that government has the ability to really give opportunity and correct many of the wrongs that have been there before. And it is. The problem is not going to big. It is going to small. And i've heard those words come out of joe biden's rouse
Karol Mason on the Killing of George Floyd and 'the Fear of Black People'
"Do you think that The conversation that the the country is having now as a result of the killing of george floyd and the trial and conviction of derek. Chauvin are we headed in the right direction. Not only in terms of the conversation but the solutions that are being discussed. I'm glad you grounded me in the conversation. We had three years ago. Because my thinking has definitely evolved since then and and I don't know that. I would have equated it until now with with the rethinking based on what happened after george floyd killing last year but i think that that is the right pivotal point for me and some of my thinking and so for me. I think that You know when you said earlier. I was thinking about drug courts. Mental health courts. I don't want any of that right now. I want to take the thinking back to where we need to make investments about what take the whole conversation back to thinking about what is public safety. Look like and and as the deputy city manager in san. Jose said when i was having conversations he said no. Let's call a community safety because then everyone understands. Who owns at the community owns it. It's not anyone's domain. It's all of our responsibility. So so i will say that the george floyd situation caused me really to rethink in reorient for myself. The conversation and i hope for everyone else. Because i think that we've gotten so polarized now about an even that word policing and turning it into a verb The question is how do we have safe communities. How do we have communities where everybody has an opportunity to thrive and succeed. And then you start talking about. And what's the role of policing in that kind of world as opposed to starting with thinking about police and then how do you create around

"cape" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Caroline Rose Giuliani, , thank you so much for coming on the podcast whereas thank you for having me. . So the headline on your appease is attention grabbing Rudy Giuliani is my father please everyone vote for Joe Biden and Kamala. . Harris. . What on earth, , feel compelled to go public with your support of the ticket that's trying to beat your father's clients life just like our country is in such a state of crisis and has been for so long. . It really reached a boiling point for me and it is attention grabbing I guess jeans have a way of being able to do that but I was hoping I could use that attention for something. . Than hopefully, inspiring , people to vote and believe that Joe Biden and calmly can start turning this country around in the piece you write about a briefly about how as growing up you would get into arguments with your father political arguments, , and if memory serves those arguments didn't go well yeah. . They were just like so many people across America have these difficult conversations with their family and you know it's taxing. It's . hard always but I was always grateful to be having conversations even when they were challenging and difficult because I think it trained me to be able to stand up for what I believe in in a way. . You know you also right and this is aside from the headline. . This was to me one of the more arresting paragraphs read if being the daughter of polarizing mayor who became the president's personal bulldog has taught me anything it is that corruption starts with yes. . Men and women the cronies who create an Echo Chamber of lies and subservience to maintain their proximity to power. . We've seen this ad Nauseam with trump and his cadre. . Of High. level. . . Sycophants parenthesis the ones who weren't convicted anyway and parenthesis. . That's pretty hard stuff to say especially when one of those people is Your Dad Yeah I've spent a lot of my life observing just because I've had access to sort of such an interesting and unusual world observing the effects of Ayman, , power on people in general, , not just auditions but even people in Hollywood and it's something that's very interesting to me as. . Like a psychological subject. . So I spent a lot of time thinking about that and just watching the last four years how trump has just evolved into this ego mania I mean he was already there but devolve further it just sort of highlighted for me the reasons behind that, , and that's because he has his echo chamber of lies around him. . The piece starts with this great inning line. . I have a difficult confession something I usually save for at least the second date my father is Rudy Giuliani. . What is the reaction of people whether they are people you're on dates with even out in the world you're a filmmaker in Los Angeles how do people react when they find out? ? Oh my God. . You're his daughter. . It's been an interesting ride through life's sort of like navigating how to reveal that information to people because through many phases, , some phases where I just didn't tell anybody I didn't want anybody to know I wanted man identity and then I grew to consulate place where I would only help you. . But when I trust down, , then there was a phase in my life where I told people at the time that was funniest to me. . Has Jets. . Get Very, , you know people are very surprised especially given how different my values are and how different I am as arson and the things I focus on, , and now I basically just helped meatball if there's ever something in my life that's related to that fact I sort of don't hold back and trust that people can see me for me and see that that's something that. . Helps shake my experiences but then much much more than that. . How hard was it for you to come to terms with who you are who your family is then to be able to stand in your own space in your own truth as your own person yeah. I . mean I've always had a really strong drive and to have that solo identity and to tell stories that are. . Up to stigmatize things in the world and create more empathy. . So I think I've always had fairly strong idea of what I want to do. . It was more the difficulty around people keep me in that box even though I'm expressing myself. . So that's why I went through the phases of hiding at. . It's it's been a journey but I'm grateful for the experience of sort of like having to navigate that <unk> given so many opportunities as well not because of my name but just simply because I am very, , very privileged upbringing and I'm extremely lucky and I'm so grateful for that

And the fact that it resonated so much with people almost. . Sad. . I want it to be successful, , but it was also kind of disheartening to hear so many people reach out to the campaign and say, , yes, , that was me I had doors closed in my face to I've been trying to advocate for. . Disability rights because my child has down syndrome or whatever it was that they were trying to be heard by other elected officials and they completely You know empathize with that that experience of going to DC and having your elected officials closed door in your face and treat you like if you're not a big donor or you don't have any political capital to barter with and you don't matter. . And so it was kind of a bittersweet thing. . It was great that it got the campaign so much attention but it broke my heart a little that people were. . So gut punched over family separation and and so used to their government just not working for them that the message really resonated with people. . And so you you lost that. . That that ad was made for and now you're running for for US Senate most polls I've seen have you around by points within five points of Senator Cornyn the Cook Political Report classifies your race as likely are which I expected to be solid are given whose Senator Cornyn is from your perspective how is the race looking? ? Well you know I mean if you I love you know just talking about like the INS and outs of the data although I do think the data shows. . That, we , have a much better shot than Beto did against Ted Cruz a lot of people think that beddoe crews race that if anybody you know. . If we couldn't beat Ted Cruz and we can't beat anybody in Texas. . It's actually not true independent voters really like Ted Cruz Ted Cruz had a fifty two percent approval rating when he wants went up against Beto. . and. . Better almost beaten and John Cornyn has an approval rating of anywhere from twenty eight to thirty two and the vote exactly the same way, , and so you have to try to figure out what the differences between the white has one why once a while popular in Texas and one's not And, , the reason that <hes> that John Cornyn is not so popular is because he there's not an independent bone in his body. . He just does he's told he does as he's told by his corporate special interests he does he's told by his party leaders and. . You know that's very Texan. . It's very Texan to have backbone and grit and integrity and stand up for your principles and so <hes>. . You know I don't really look at polling that much. . Even fivethirtyeight recently said that <hes> Democrats in Texas are always going out will recently at least maybe not always are outperforming the polling in part because you poll people with a reliable voting history and we've been forty nine hundred fiftieth in voter turnout for decades. . So who's reliable voter anymore when when you have double or triple the turnout at the polls, , a lot of the people showing up to vote which by the way the people who are getting. . Engaged to go and vote who haven't been reliable voters tend to be not good news for whatever political party is in power right? ? So we expect to outperform the Coles the polling we're we're a lot closer than Beto was in the polling against Ted Cruz and yet he's still almost beat him. . So I, , have every confidence that. . After the debate we only have one scheduled that Cornyn. . has agreed to he has kind of chickened out on the other to even though he told the Texas Tribune that he would be. . Willing to do more. . I think that he knows that he can't run on his record I. . think he knows that the more Texans learn about him the worse it is for him we pick up a lot more of those independent undecided voters because my vision for this state is a lot more in line with Texas values in. . Want. .

"Have the woods hole oceanographic institute so it was founded in nineteen thirty? It's the largest independent oceanographic research institute in the US and scientists and engineers from their travel the globe from the coast to the deepest depths to tackle questions ranging from climate change to oil spills and ocean acidification in September nineteen eighty five a joint french-american expedition led by Jacques. Louis Michel of Premier and Rubber Ballard of the Woods Hole Institute identified the location of the wreck of the titanic cool. There are really cool. Is there a really cool Organization that's there lots at low toll vessels and they said they have underwater ones. They've some submarines they have some above water ships? You know regular shailer ships. Yeah so yeah a lot of coming out of woods hole there that's cool and also just extra tidbit the CAPE COD or the Cape. Cod type of cocktail consisting. Vodka and cranberry juice cranberries are very big up in Massachusetts especially around the Plymouth area and the Cape Cod region. So that's why the cranberry juice drink comes from there. Another North American Cape Cape Fear. Oh yeah the movie. Yes exactly like the movie. So fear is a headland that just into the Atlantic Ocean from bald head island on the coast of North Carolina. It's for the intersection of two sweeping arcs of shifting low Lang beach that are the result of longshore currents that also formed the frying pan shoals which are part of the Graveyard of the Atlantic man. This place sounds scary. There are more than six hundred ships that wrecked in this section one end in this section of the ocean as victims of shallow shoals storms in war. That's the graveyard of the Atlantic so The NAME FOR CAPE. Fear comes from the fifteen eighty five expedition of Sir Richard Grenville. He was sailing to Roanoke Island and his ship became stuck behind the Cape. Some of the crew were afraid they would wreck giving rise to the name Cape Fear but Interestingly Cape Fear is the fifth oldest surviving English place name in the United States. Oh Wow that's cool isn't it? It's funny that we can track that kind of you know. The you mentioned the movie Cape Fear. Originally the original film came out in nineteen sixty two so that was adapted by James. Our web from the nineteen fifty seven novel the executioners by John D. McDonald in the film concerns an attorney whose family is being stopped by a criminal. He helped to send to jail. So that was a Neo Noir. Psychological thriller starring Robert. Mitchum Gregory Pack Martin Balsam and polly. Bergen it was remade. Nineteen ninety-one Martin Scorsese starring like Robert Deniro as the the very scary criminal guy But three of the main actors from the nineteen sixty two version did appear in the remake. So that was kind of neat. Oh that's cool. Yeah that's I mean. That's probably if you don't vacation in the outer banks that's probably how you've heard of Cape Fear is is through the movie. Yeah Yeah no. I have never a vacation in the outer bass. Well you're missing out because apparently because there you also have Cape Hatteras saw Abedin in a thin broken strain of islands. In North Carolina that arch out into the Atlantic Ocean Ocean from the US mainland and back toward the mainland creating a series of islands between the Outer Banks and the mainland so for thousands of years these barrier islands have survived onslaughts of wind and Sea Cape Hatteras is also the nearest landmass on the North American mainland to Bermuda which is only about six hundred forty eight miles or five hundred sixty three nautical miles to the east or southeast. I wouldn't think that Bermuda was that far north. Yes but same all right another one that we've heard of Cape May Right so that's a peninsula an island. That's divided by a narrow channel. It's the southern tip of the island is the southernmost point of the State of New Jersey. So the peninsula resides in Cape May County. Runs southward from the New Jersey mainland separates Delaware Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. Kate is named for Cornelius. Jacobsen may spelled M. E. Y. Dutch explorer working for the Dutch east. India company. Cape May is apparently famous as one of the top birding sites in North America and Cape May New Jersey. The town is one of the country's oldest vacation resort destinations entire city of Cape May is designated the Cape May historic district which is a national landmark due to its concentration of Victorian buildings. Oh how nice yes. We're going ahead a little bit south and go to Cape Sable. So that's the southern most point of the United States mainland and mainland Florida. It's located in south western Florida in his part of the everglades National Park. They have three prominent points there on Cape Sable the east. Cape which is the actual southernmost point of Florida and the United States mainland It also is the location of Lake. Ingram which the southernmost lake in the United States the Middle Cape also known as palm point and then the North West Cape and has a lot of lakes and beaches and again it's part of the everglades national park. So there's a Lotta. There's a lot of things down there. But yeah like you've you've obviously been which is like the real southern EST like part of the United States and the continental us but but this is the part of the mainland. This is the southernmost point and the mainland but also in Florida Cape Canaveral. Ooh That's in. I'm Brevard County Florida. It's near the center of the state's Atlantic coast. I'm this is actually known as Cape Kennedy from nineteen sixty three to nineteen seventy-three in his part of a region known as the space coast. Yeah of the Cape Canaveral Air Force station so since many. Us spacecraft have been launched from both the station and the Kennedy Space Center on adjacent Merritt Island. The two are sometimes conflated with one another. Oh so they're not the same thing. Kennedy Space Center is on Merritt Island as opposed to Cape Canaveral. I say okay It Omar shoots spacefaring heritage the Florida Public Service Commission allocated area code three to one as in a launch countdown to the Cape Canaveral area Okay that's cute. Yeah Nice job. Queue and other features of that Cape include the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse in Port Canaveral. Which is one of the busiest cruise ports in the world. Where oh I believe. It used to be one of the busiest crew. We'll see where we'll see. We'll see where the future takes us. Also I guess we'll see In Mexico you have Kabo San Lucas or something. Sometimes people just call it Kabo So that's a resort city. At the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula in the Mexican state of California Sir Cabo San Lucas is known for its beaches scuba diving. Locations in the sea arch are good. The Kabo San Lucas is very good life. So that's Kabo in Spanish means Cape in English. You see that it out heading down to South America. I know it's okay. I'm not GONNA do it. I'm not GONNA do it. I was GONNA say everybody else out there. You can you picture a CAPE IN SOUTH AMERICA? And if you said Cape Horn than you're right. So porn porn is the southernmost Hedlund of the Sierra del Fuego archipelago southern Chile. And it's located on the small or knows island. So it's not the most southerly point of South America. That's actually the Diego's GonNa Islands. Cape Horn marks the northern boundary of the drake passage and marks where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet. Oh okay cool so k. Porn was discovered and first rounded in sixteen sixteen by the Dutchman Willem Schouten who named it after the city of Hoon in the Netherlands to WHO and for Decades Cape Horn was a major milestone on. The Clipper Route Because sailing ships carried trade around the world and the waters around. Cape Horn particularly hazardous owns a strong winds large waves strong currents and also sometimes icebergs so yeah. The need for boats and ships around Cape Horn was actually ended up being greatly reduced when the Panama Canal opened in Nineteen Fourteen Austria failing around Cape Horn is still widely regarded as one of the major challenges in yachting and it is believed that more than ten thousand sailors have perished Rounding Cape Horn. Oh my God see this is why again. Do not go out into the sea. It is not gonNA. It's not gonNA treat you right. Not For us. Not For us see is a dangerous place. How many times? I have to tell you the whole reason why I started. This podcast was to warn you about space and the sea and to teach people to really obscure fashion design. Exactly have written on my whiteboard. Just remember that Cape Horn is one of the great capes. We'll tell you a little bit more about that a minute okay. Moving along to another continent going to Africa. You have the Cape of Good Hope. Yes. Isn't that sound nice? Good Hope it's a rocky Headland Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula in South Africa. So when following the western side of the African coastline from the equator the Cape of Good Hope marks the point where ship begins to travel more eastward than southward the first modern rounding of the Cape was in fourteen eighty eight Portuguese and it was a milestone in the attempts by the Portuguese to establish trade relations with the Far East. A common misconception. Is that the Cape of good. Hope is the southern tip of Africa instead that is Actually Cape. I'll go haas which translates into the Cape of needles. That's the geographic southern tip of the African continent in the beginning of the dividing line between the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The Cape of Good Hope also called Cape Colony has also been of special two sailors. Many of whom referred to it simply as the Cape. So it's a way point on the Cape Route. And the clipper route followed by ships to the Far East and Australia and still followed by several offshore yacht races and again keep of good hope is also one of the Great Capes Cape Good Hope is also the official home of the South African Astronomical Observatory up top and the unofficial home of more than thirty five hundred shipwrecks down below. Like Gosh so until the work of the South African Astronomical Observatory began in eighteen twenty the treacherous seas around the Cape of Good Hope saw more than five hundred years of ships battering and crashing through the South Atlantic with little to no usable stellar navigation. Established Gosh so without the positions of the southern stars accurately mapped ships were often on their own in. Unfamiliar waters are under unfamiliar skies. So the observatory. There has done a lot of a lot of work. Oh yeah you know what I never even thought about that like if you are from northern hemisphere country and you know how like Guide Yourself? Sars soon as you cross Ed equator literally. You can't look anywhere on exactly like what are we who Again you should not sale where it related to that. Also the CAPE OF GOOD. Hope is the legendary home of the ship. The Flying Dutchman Oud by tormented and damned ghostly sailors it's doomed forever to beat its way through the adjacent waters without ever succeeding in rounding the headland the Flying Dutchman. All right So two of the three great capes are Cape Horn in South America and Africa and finally in Australia. You Get Cape Lee win. That's spelled L. E. E. U. W. I N. Cape. It is the most South Westerly mainland point of the Australian continent in the state of Western Australia and Australia. It is considered the point where the Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean. Okay the war Dandy Aboriginals. Were the first peoples in the area. And they called it. Do Gallup I like that better but okay. Yeah me too. The English navigator Matthew flinders named Cape Lou and after the first known ship to visit the area the Lewin a Dutch vessel that translates to lioness and so that vessel had charted some in the nearby coastline in sixteen twenty two so again. That's the third Grade Cape so I guess yachters like to around the mall. I mean it's like a big deal if you get around all if you're able to navigate around all three. I don't know if you have to do it in the same trip word. But it's a you know. It's a sign of accomplishment did. We haven't talked about Europe yet so Cape nor the kin and or decay. I N N is the northernmost point on the northern peninsula in Norway it's on northern peninsula in trump's Ogg finnmark county in case you're checking so that's notable for being the northernmost point of mainland Norway and by extension the northernmost point of mainland Europe. Okay ignored catching up. And then Kabo Roka or Cape Roca is a Cape which forms the westernmost point of the central mountain range of mainland Portugal and so that is the westernmost point of continental Europe and the Eurasian landmass is Kaberuka in Portugal cool. Yep those are all the ones I wanted to talk about it all the Kate. All the Cape's I wanted to talk about and just some Bonus Cape Info for you. I know leaves a little bit at the top but the Cape of Matador is called a Maleta in it has traditionally always been read but not really for any bull related reason so bulls can't see red they're actually calling line to it but they react to the erratic movement of the Cape itself and that's why they charge. Actually Maleta is actually only used in the final third act of a bullfight like they just like get in the ring with the with the came.

I would I would open up voting rights everywhere. Republican democrat I'd make it as easy as could be in Wyoming as well as in, you know, the district of Columbia now why why should these are such polarized time?

I mean, this is not an issue of democrat Republican. But this is how the hard right Republicans think and they push everybody with them.

Where south bend was getting more where I was getting more attention and south bend to. And I was thinking about what that meant for south bend. And and how I could use that benefit the city more. Look part of being in politics is people come along all the time and put big ideas in your head the question, you gotta ask yourself about every step. You take from the first time you run for any office to the moment when you decide it's time to move on and have your life back or the voters decide that for you, the the questions you've got to ask our where do I belong is there some match between what a given community or district were state or country needs and what I have to offer. And and how can I make myself useful? And those are questions that you'll read all sorts of things about yourself that that may affect the the way that the the you're perceived with the end of they you've got to answer that question for yourself.

I believe that there is probably going to be a choice in my life between being out or being a public servant, at least in Indiana. And the fact that that is not an either or choice something I could not have guessed as recently, as you know, ten years ago, I think it shows how much change can happen in our politics and our country. It shows how powerful the element of surprises in in our politics, and in our country, and as anybody who's paid attention to the conditions in our country in the last few years knows there are very good surprises in very bad surprises. But for me being somebody's who's ultimately optimistic about our country in about life in general. It's a reminder of. The idea that things may be possible that seem absurd today.

"To have talk a little bit about how do we deal with the trauma? How do we deal with this? Because I know I'm not the only one we're not the only ones who are dealing with this. You know in in my line of work. Now, we are dealing with that very thing the trauma, these tragedies in particular, even in particular with the gun violence reviver 's. There's no way you can understand the internal trauma. That it wreaks on the individuals that are suffering suffering from the gun violence, and then even the people that love them and the people that are in their communities and their families. There are not enough organizations in the country that are dealing with the mental crisis of gun violence. You know, we have organizations for alcoholics anonymous, we have organizations for breast cancer awareness. We have organizations for people that are suffering PTSD, you know, because are victims of war having gone to war. But we don't have any viable means for people that need self care with the internal mental physical traumas that they suffer from with gun violence. I would call upon the mental health community to really take apart in creating safer spaces for people to get healing because that's just not being offered right now. And the tendency for most people say as wall, okay that tragedy that was that tragedy and people go on with their lives, and they move on you know, and. The next story in the media just goes right onto the next story, but the tragedy the continuing tragedy is the, you know, the broken lives that the people that are suffering this every single day, and there is no community help.

Closed doors. The talk about it to their little community groups or the PTA, but they're afraid to talk about it to the people that will be most. Affected by the change one of the things that's affecting the change in positive ways. But also a little bit ghoulish ways is social media. The reason that the killing of Trayvon Martin took off as a national story is because folks in the community black folks in the community went on Twitter went on social media in demanding that action be taken. And I think at the at the cap event believe it was you do on who said. Because of social media people have no choice but to face this. Absolutely. I mean, I know in the work that I do with gun funds prevention a lot of the mobilizing. I would say actually, you know, a huge proportion of the mobilize in that. We that we do is specifically done on social media because that is the way in which people now are communicating and so social media has been become a very important part of creating social movements for Justice.

And it's a daily thing that happens inside out community often in is a two fold story community values police brutality, and I shared that story. I had to put it in your face because I represent what black men and women who are victims of polish retali- of gun violence what they can be. So when you see you see my story, and you see that are survive I represent Jordan Davis. I represent here. And make sure that he's story contained to live on and telling his mom that I will be okay. Just as he did when he heard about Trayvon Martin. He did the same thing. I do to my mother her note that her baby is, okay. Because that's how she felt when she told that to me I feel that. And I have to represent him to present right now. There's like when I go out here. I have to make sure you know, that I will be okay. And I'm representing him, and I will continue to make sure his story lives or because this who we are. He was unopposed logistic himself. He said that will not happen to me.

"In the way, do one put it so eloquently and passionately. You're speaking not just for yourself and not just for other African American men. I mean, I I heard myself in in what you just said, and there's so much in there. To unpack their two things that I want us to try to talk about one is what we've been talking about explicitly here in that is. Implicit bias? In the other thing is this incredible sense of. Powerlessness that we all have to deal with. I know right now we're talking about African American men, but this is something that African Americans period have to have to contend with. How do we go forward? What what comes to mind? I believe we start having these conversations be on L south. We know what we're going through. And how it makes us feel. We have to stop being afraid of making people feel uncomfortable. When you uncomfortable you grow. If you're not growing, you stand stagnant in we're not seeing people uncomfortable Steph or they're not growing from this conversation. It's not that black people to say, hey, look, you need to do some better we've referred back two years of pitchers in videos when it was turnover. Cheek firehose Doug been sick us.

That maybe I'm not participated in such bias oh races headed twos. But I benefit from it, and what I can do to make amends make let's move is this mall gauge forward a little bit more. So we're seeing these things that happen consistently social media racism in this bias. It's not new it's been amplified now. So let let's go ahead and take me on being aware. And they're less implicate. You know, let's do something about it. We we have to move beyond that. Now, we we are where we are accountable because we're uncomfortable every day now skin while we will you say, hey, where you go to work, they make treat you like this. They may look at you like that these little micro aggressions that your face when you walk down the street someone Houghton they're big they locked doors. Go to story five years, we're costly been under attack cycle. Physically most cases up to have to be one of the key ingredients that I think needs to be there for these types of uncomfortable conversations to happen is trust. And I'm said for a long time that while these conversations happen on a peer to peer bases around the country all the time. There are lots of people having this conversation. But nationally, I think we as Americans we don't trust each other enough to have these conversations. How do we how do we gain that trust? Is that even possible? I think we as Americans is black Americans minorities. I think we have to stop letting America tell us who we are. I think we have to be empowered enough. You know, even as we're talking about what is black lives matter mean when we talk about black lives matter will we talk about black lives matter because we're reminding the rest of the nation and the rest of the world that we are here, and we matter, but I think it's more. So for us recalling to ourselves as a race as a generation a culture of people who we are and stop leading the rest of the world define who we are. And I think by feeling more empowered to define who we are as a race of people. And how important we are to the integrity and the very fabric and being of this country. Then in a sense were demanding that people recognize these conversations, we're in so many words saying you're going to listen, and you're going to hear what we need to say to you. And we're going to make you uncomfortable. Because as to one said don't only way to grow into change and stimulate change is by stepping out of the boat and being uncomfortable..

"Mind just listening to your answer Lucy where she with her kids around her. She said to Lester Holt, how do you tell your kids how to behave when they aren't doing anything wrong. The only thing that I can think to tell people and specifically mothers when they say, what do I tell my children? What do I tell my my boys my young male children? How do I tell them what I need to tell them? So that they exist and they come home every day. And I say there comes responsibility on your part to begin telling them, very very very early on how to protect themselves, and it's very tedious because it's hard to tell them how to support their ideas and support their opinions and to be who they are. But at the same time protecting themselves from people that don't support their ideas and don't support who's it who they are human beings. And so what I end up saying to them is that don't let them live in fear. Do not teach them to fear, even though they have just caused fear. You cannot impose your fears on them, and that they still have to walk and references to who they are as a human being. As a young black male as a young black woman, and and and to thrive in that and not live as if they do not matter not to live as if they are afraid because that's exactly what. This country would want you to do to live as if you are not completely free. But, you know, do on when it comes to the talk because that's what Lucy is is talking about here. I remember when I had the talk with my mother, and it was she was speaking as calmly as Lucy did just now, but I was raving mad. I was so angry that she was saying this to me. No, we lived in a predominantly white neighborhood. And what precipitated this conversation was the N word slipping out of the mouths of. What of my one of my close friends, and my mom telling me right now, you and your friends are the same. She had her hands at an equal level. She said as you get older, this is what's going to happen. And the my the hand that was supposed to represent me stayed the same. Whereas the hand representing my white friends rose, you are no longer going to be equal the older the older you get and want just wondering for you. Did you have was that talk? Given to you give away I live. I didn't have that talk. A wasn't taught to police myself as such a manner because as I grew older learned that it was learned behavior that the police will treat us like this about time. I was thirteen I had my first summer job. I knew that the police will come around, and it called shakedown take your money and for me I needed. I always have to have a pay stub in back pocket. So when he came around and got everybody else, I say, this is my money, and I have my pay stub. So always begin to rationalize myself to prepare myself for that. But all we talk about the talk. I now have to talk more than I would have when I was younger. So now, I'm having a talk with other people who wanna try to police me and my being when I speak on the incident was like, well, you was shot and police conceive this. Maybe you should've did XYZ eight try to tell me all the the ways that I should behave in rages me because I'm saying I have a bullet in my head bloodstained clothes guslan. But you're telling me that I am still a threat to you your store trying to police me immi- being. So why should I have to always make you feel more comfortable with just me existing? So no, I cannot submit the, hey, let me go hit and make sure everybody else's comfortable. And I'm uncomfortable in my own skin every single day. Komo also, right. And I actually wrote a piece about this. How been a young black man black man period, we're costly under attack from every angle from the workplace to school bag at home to even some of our personal relationships with we wanna lane. So one, and then he always telling us to man up and suppress these emotions always constantly been police for motions. And I can't I refused to do that. Because that little that that being inside me can't live..

"I was vicar seen as victim. But I actually am Victor. Because now I were daily in commit myself to provide solution for the person in front of the gun as well as the person behind the gun, and that's why I went off to college. The study ufologist aggression developing youth programs then went off my master's to understand policy institutional reforms or how it could prevent community violence and economical develop in things of that nature that would contribute to community disinvestment Lizzy. The reason why you're here, you're the you're the other side of this this gun violence, equation, your, son. Was the fatal victim of of gun violence your son being being Jordan Davis who was killed by Michael Dunn in Florida at a gas station in Florida because his music was too loud. Well, you know, that is the way that the comp- country response to our case nationally, but any minority knows that you know, it wasn't really about the music. The music was just basically a vehicle by which Michael Dunn used assistive fence to carry out his. Implicit biases and racism towards young black males. And using that they didn't turn the music down that attitude. They didn't do what I wanted them to do. I felt threatened. Because they were for young black males and based upon the law and Florida I had the thorny in the right to use my gun to silence people that I believe are, you know, creating a threat towards me and my existence, and that's basically what Michael Dunn used as his defense is the standard ground law because as expansive and open as it is it gives people carte blanche based upon you know, sometimes they're not even credible threats. And this was not a credible threat to gun down Jordan and to shoot at the the boys in car the shooting happened in November two thousand twelve government twenty-third sediments after Trayvon talk about the conversation. You had with your son after Trayvon was killed was the very disturbing conversation because I can remember. I remember it as if it were yesterday, we're standing in my bedroom. My husband, and our bedroom, and we had just been watching. You know, the, of course, the media played over and over and over again, you could hear the tape of Trayvon sane help me. Help me Jordan's mom. Why did that man gunned down Trayvon he wasn't doing anything? Why did he gun them down? And it was very, you know, disheartening to have to say to my son, baby. You know, there are people in this country that do not value. You is young black male that don't value black men in this country. And you've got to be very careful where you go. What you do you cannot walk freely in this country like wine America. And Jordan just don't understand. I don't understand why this happened. And you know, I kept saying Jordan in the event that you are in argument or verbal confrontation with anyone standout. Standdown? Because nowadays this exactly what I said people will not use reasonable conflict resolution. They will take their guns out, and they will shoot you. And Jordan distinctly said mom, that's not gonna happen to me. That's not gonna happen to me. I can take care of myself. And there's not a day that goes behind that conversation does not haunt at my heart, and my soul because in the end, no matter how much we did to protect him to care for him. To raise him the way that we were supposed to raise him in the in in America as young black male. He was not free or safe. But lesser hold NBC nightly news anchor Lester Holt went down to Baltimore after the death of Freddie, gray when there were demonstrations in he interviewed a young mother..

It's like Ron f- in hospital role fucking spittle, and they took me from one hospital in a complete different direction. Ended up at university of Maryland shock trauma. Can I woke up three days later? Three days later, and as a result of being. Shot in the head. No medical assistance for at least thirty minutes being taken initially to one hospital, but a paramedic demanding that you be taken to the proper hospital. What nickname were you given? By the neighborhood. The neighborhood called me the walking angel. How did that inspire you because you're now an anti gun violence activists now? Yes, I refer to myself as a gun violence champion because I champion this issued. Or I was not a victim of it initially..

"North Carolina, a former governor named Pat mccrory staked his entire election, a not just attacking LGBTQ people, but attacking trans people, especially and in a state that Donald Trump won by four points that same state voted to aalst for the first time in its history, the incumbent governor because he attacked our community, those attacks inspired, turn out across the state of North Carolina. Like we had not seen before LGBTQ people, allies, Democrats independents and some Republicans standing up and saying, we won't stand for this hate and voted to oust Pat Mkhori. We can repeat that in states all across this country, and I believe we're going to this November Chad Griffin, president of the human rights campaign. Thanks very much for being here.

"I think it's important that we do that, and it's my hope that people will continue to have trust the on this process regardless of how this. Works out for maybe my colleagues and and those who have been found to be involved in something inappropriate. You have three kids, you man that before they're young aren't? Yeah. I got a set of four year old twins, my son, Jackson and my daughter, Caroline, and I have a newborn who's one year old. Yeah, birthday. So they're really young? Yeah, they're young when they are in school? Yes, that they still teach civics, but by then and they learn about this period about your run. Yeah. And let's say you're not successful in your primary quest. What do you hope your children learn about you? Yeah. From this period? Yeah, I hope that they know that their mother and father made tremendous sacrifice, not only for their futures, but for the futures of other kids just like them. Because honestly, Jonathan, nobody makes this decision to run with so much going on in their three kids. My wife myself a lot at stake here. You don't just wake up and deci. Oh, well, this would be a fun thing to do. If you make this decision, it better be a calling. It better be. So you ought to feel so convicted in your spirit that you can't shake it. You can't sleep at night until you reach this conclusion. And when my wife and I had this conversation in spite of the trials that this would present absolutely the hardest thing that we've done either she or myself on our years on this earth, but we believe we're doing and not only for our kids, but for the kids that we can't name. I hope that they know that their father put everything into it that not only was I not a quitter that because of are persistence that at the end of the day, we were victorious ones, right? And that we were able to transform our state in such a way to make it a state that was deserving of them that the other way around, but but a state that is deserving of every night that they have to offer. I would take tremendous pride if that's the legacy of this whole thing. And if the conclusion is that it wasn't my time to be governor at this point. I hope that our run will provide motivation and inspiration for the next low black boy from Richmond heights who grew up in a working class house whole to make the decision that they don't have to be a millionaire, but they too can run and serve and give back to a state or community that they love. I hope that people will be able to make that determination either way. Quite frankly, Andrew gillum mayor of. Talahassee and candidate for governor of the great state of Florida.

Ever since he delivered a speech on the removal of confederate statues and monuments from his city in two thousand seventeen former New Orleans mayor MICH Landrieu has been seen as a no nonsense leader who should run for president. So I asked him about that. His new memoir Trump in race and the future of the Democratic Party. This conversation was originally recorded for Cape up live event at the third way opportunity twenty twenty conference in Columbus, Ohio on July twentieth and has been edited for content and clarity. Lanzhou. Thank you very much for being here. Welcome to the podcast. Again, this is your second time and welcome to Columbus. Thanks, great to be here. So Columbus here. Here's the text message. I sent you on June thirteenth. As I was reading your book. Here it is in the shadows of statues. A white southerner confronts history. I wrote to you MICH it's k- part just in case you didn't know me. It's k- part when I read books, I write notes in the margins and underlying key or beautiful passages. I'm only on page eleven of your book and I've already underlined the hell out of it. You're a spots. I didn't time how long it took a while and you wrote back, thanks. You like it. So your book. Thank you so much. This is so lively of you. Well, I mean, look in all seriously your book. I know people keep those tweets and repeat them in public later. So you have to be kind of circumspect about what you say. Well, that is true. Thanks. Glad you liked. In all seriousness. Your book is an expansion of the speech you gave in New Orleans on may nineteenth two thousand seventeen, correct me if I'm wrong, just hours after the last of the four, three months, three statues. One monument where removed, why do you think that speech struck such a chord? You're not the first person to talk about race. You're not the first white person or the first white southerner to talk about race. So what was it about you or that speech that struck such a chord out? I don't. I'm really still to this day flabbergasted by the fact that any speech that I gave went went viral. I've been in office for thirty years. I've given a lot of speeches about a lot of things. Some of which I thought were really important, criminal Justice and lots of other things. But and this speech incidentally was given purposefully to a local audience..
