Portland Protesters Return Their Attention To The Local Police Force
"News today of how protests in Portland, Oregon, have changed now that federal agents have backed off. Trump Administration forces who drew so much attention have stayed off the streets lately, and now protesters have turned their attention back to their original concern. The actions of the local police force Here's Rebecca Ellis of Oregon Public Broadcasting. Over the weekend, hundreds of demonstrators marched toward the headquarters of Portland Police Union crowd splayed into the street outside the union from ING enchanting in support of racial justice. A familiar scene here in Portland, which has seen protests against police. Violence continue uninterrupted for more than 70 days. Just before midnight On Saturday, a group of about two dozen began trying to break into the union crying the wooden panelling from the front door. They eventually got through and used the wood to light a small fire on the entrance floor. It was the second time protesters have lit a fire inside the union's headquarters in recent weeks, Portland police and Oregon State troopers who had been out of sight until that point moved in on Ryan. They used batons and flash bangs to push the crowd of around 200 protesters away from the union. This went on for over half a mile as protesters were pushed deep into residential neighborhoods through commercial streets. Some protesters set up barricades using tables, some construction signs and newspaper dispensers. Parents. Moses, black business owner in the area, drove over to help clean up. This does not have anything to do with the call. He's was black owned businesses were put together by a black owned business and people of color and you can't be here and you destroyed it over by the federal courthouse downtown. It was much calmer scene. Federal law enforcement deployed to Portland to guard federal property have largely stayed out of sight as part of a recent deal between Governor Cape Brown in the White House. Oregon State police now guard the building. Nearly two months ago. Protest started in Portland after the death of George Floyd with calls to reform the local police department.

Trump wants to ban Tik Tok
"Actually let's talk a little bit about Tick Tock today I performed this morning. An Act of rebellion. I downloaded installation talk on my iphone because who knows how much longer I'll be able to do it it's very confusing I don't know what's going on. Tick Tock, which is owned by the Chinese company Bite Dance Safest that committee. Or foreign investment in the United. States apparently is investigating I. Think they actually issued a ruling saying that like, wow away tick tock was a threat to the United States One of the ways tiktok became really big as by acquiring a couple years ago musically, which is really I think from what I see on. tiktok kind of the backbone of what Tick Tock is these days, which is lip synching or acting or dancing to an original track It's it's very entertaining. It's a it's probably the most engaging social network out there. But apparently, it's a threat to our way of life. On Friday the president on Air Force One. said that he was about to ban it as soon as yesterday. From the United States I'm not sure under what law safest can do it I think. But I don't know if the president can by executive order banning application. then for the last week Microsoft Been. Negotiating to buy the American rights to talk to kind of create a tick tick Tock America that would be separate from the Chinese bite. Dance. TIKTOK. But then the president says I'M GONNA ban it but I don't want anybody to buy it. So, micro-. Microsoft said. Threw their hands off and said figure it out and there. They didn't end the conversation with bite dance. Apparently, they were fairly close but they're not forwarding it until they find out what happens I'm GonNa make a prediction. Nothing is going to happen except now people are going to download and use TIKTOK. Brianna is tick tock a threat to national security. It's not a unique threat to national security. We need to have a conversation about the kinds of information social media APPS are able to download from our phones. We all remember the scandals of facebook on android downloading your tire phone list gang everyone you've ever called. We need to have a conversation about that, but there's there's really no evidence that what Tiktok is pulling is any greater than what you know facebook instagram these other social media sites are. Pulling so far. So we need a wider discussion about that. How's it just want to say I wish I could tell you this was just trump in the Republicans that would make me very happy. My heart broke today to see Chuck Schumer on the Sunday morning shows advocating the same thing tech talk. So you know it's it is we need to have a conversation about national security and the amount of information were giving up but it's I think. To just focus on TIKTOK. Sign of. Phobia. Or Zena Phobia Paris, you seem like a Tiktok user. I that's only because you're younger than. I. Did recently re downloaded when this whole. Wanted to make sure that I had it. I'm sure is a common response. I agree with everything the Brown said in the sense that I don't know I've been particularly disturbed by. The reactions to take talks, data collection both from the left and right and just. Experts in the tech field generally over the past couple of months because it is definitely coming from a place of seeing phobia. I mean, we have so many different. American. Made APPS that. Do many of the same things I mean one thing that I've seen noted quite often as to talk has the ability to see what you've. You know copied near Clipboard when guests so do most of the apps you have on your phone. Is Operatives. It's not a tiktok specific problem. This came up because of Iowa's fourteen, which is in public Beta now so people are suddenly using it and dozens of applications. I. Think must be a library that they all subscribe to infect somebody a couple of weeks ago. Somebody told me that it was. Ad Library I use of what a clearly noninvasive program from panic software Call Code editor, which lets me log into my Server. with SSh and and edit files and things like that and it was. I got the same thing that you get on Iowa's fourteen O, coders looking clipboard every time I typed to character. Now I don't think coded only panic software famous for an FTP program and this H. Program is at spying on me obviously, they're not. they're using the same code library. So it's a, it's a, it's a bug. That's what Lincoln Microsoft's linked in said as well. So. I think it's also just one of those things where if you're building an APP especially in. The Tom I. Don't know there was a time when absence of for being built were there wasn't this conversation about security and privacy. Why would map designers not take the position of? Yeah. All the things maybe we'll need that information talk said quite credibly. We're just looking to see if you put a url on your clipboard so we can pasted in. That seems credible I. Don't know if you need to do it every single time I type of character that seems like more that book I can tell you firsthand from developing an Iowa it's often easiest just to get it submitted to the APP store to take a bunch of permissions and It's just it's like you're trying to debugging in. Store, to accept it is just quirky. I can't tell you how many times I in other APP developers have. Just it's a very, very quirky system. So I, think this is just in Beta. I think it's really important to point out as far as the impetus for this I personally do not think it's a coincidence that tiktok was widely credited for disrupting trump's Tulsa rally a couple of weeks ago and Sarah Cooper is so famous for she's making five star she's she's amazing and those videos are brutal to trump and I I don't. That's a coincidence. She does trump limps licks lip sync. And I was talking to a friend said you know is the trump on TV I can't understand what he's saying but then I watched Cooper and that makes sense Sarah ads expressions and Gestures and all kinds of makes sense all of us and so I don't think the president should be so quick to to not like Sarah purchase he's adding context Might have something to do with it certainly in his mind because we know. You know. I don't know what he's going to do to Cape Pop stands because they were the other the other group that apparently figured out that you could register took on trump's team has got to be wise enough to know you can't take on the capons stands. Being. The capon stands the United States would crumble. Yes. That would be it would be over right. You just can't win against the K pop stands So. They were both advocating people sign up for the Tulsa Rally and not not show and Honestly the fault lies with Brad Par Scout trump's former campaign manager and his campaign team for believing all those registrations and building a giant outdoor stage. Giant parking lot so that the millions of people who are going to be coming because they all registered would have somewhere to be, and then I loved. Well, I shouldn't say that that sounds partisan was interesting to see the one person with the baby stroller in that giant area and the rest of the arena half full or third full So I could see why he might be a little angry about that. Is there. No, Matt. And I'm not putting you in the position of speaking for the government I want to say that in fact, we should have said that. That Nazi for the. Federal government but you also having worked Akiko Google you understand how you know a little bit about how this stuff works the the there's not any proof that while way for instance, has ever done anything. Particularly Evil they've done some commercial espionage apparently, but nothing could particularly evil but there's the potential if they run the entire five G. Network that at some point, they could inject malicious software to the network or shut it down. Is What could Even even sounds stupid asking it. What could take time do? It's the forbidden APP. If you think about it if you don't have it on your phone, it could disappear at any time. No I think it's it's less about that although you do see companies like Amazon saying, Hey, on your work phone or work device please don't install. And they did it. Because they realize Oh we do business with these guys. Let's not this them off but wells Fargo did that I think the Department of Defense I don't know about you sds, but it's reasonable if you've got a company phone. Probably shouldn't have facebook or instagram on it either you right? Yeah. I keep my twitter and all that stuff very far away from work phone. It's my it's my personal account, but you know it's I can understand why people want to have just a a sense of okay. Let's be careful. Let's see what's going on and then You know just making sure that you can depend on the. Tools all the way down reflections on trusting trust. You can put things into a compiler, which then you can remove it from the source code and turns out that thing can stay in the compiler for years and years and years. So you know you don't WanNa be load bearing on any particular technology that you can't quite vouch for his guesses what people are thinking, what would be the legal? How could a president ban an APP in the United States I was thinking about this in the one thing the United States government is very effective at is We we we went after Isis in I sell at a very effective way instead of this Ip address to a recruitment site you can't access it. So my my guess would be the executive order would basically grafter the ISP's and say you can't go to this particular ISP but think about that I know of VPN products is sponsor show sponsored mind and to know how few seconds would take the average teenager together VPN account to just keep their tiktok going. Yesterday I downloaded the tiktok cap the first video that came up credit account 'cause I forgot my previous password was a if Tiktok it's banned. Here's how to get around it. You don't Vpn you can go into the settings, your phone, change your country of origin to Canada and then You're great. Exactly I mean it's not enforceable basically So I mean one thing Leo I think. Matt and I would probably agree that we do need to. I don't know if it's more oversight from the point of sale like on the APP store or Google play I I don't know if it's kind of an External Code audit policy for these kinds of APPs on their own by countries I. Think we agree we we need more oversight and we need to make sure all of these are not stealing data from people and just to get people very brief history lesson you know Edward Snowden had some very serious allegations about our own spying agencies using. Facebook to gather intelligence on people all around the world there's evidence for that. There's no hard evidence at this point the Tiktok is doing any of this. So if we're serious about doing this, the answer isn't to further balkanize the United States from the rest of the world the answers to form coalitions with other countries say look if you're going to operate here in, you know if you're gonNA have the software operating in our country here, the rule you have to follow you can't just arbitrarily download people's Phone books, there's going to be You know civil fights. That's clearly the way to go is got to be bigger than just tiktok. I'm just looking at Tick Tock on my iphone. It has access to my photos because I gave it access to my photo so I could put a profile picture on there. it gives me notifications I could turn that off. That's that's a push though that's not a poll. Background APP refresh means it can run in the background and cellular data doesn't ask for. location data doesn't ask for I mean facebook asks for ten times more. That's why I don't have it on my phone. I. mean the worst thing Tiktok does is waste millions of hours a productivity, and maybe that's a recent ban I don't know. But I, just I don't understand how it could be used. If it's not getting location permissions, how could it be used maliciously and I think it is getting location position. I know that I've know anecdotally at least from a couple of friends whenever they let's say go to Connecticut to visit family or something they will suddenly get Connecticut. Themed Tiktok content or something similar. Okay. that could just be from. Connection you can get that from the IP address so they could get a Geo location through IP address without asking APP without telling apple that they're doing that that would make sense. Okay. So they're getting them. Every cannon probably, I hate to say it probably does do that.

Derek Black was groomed to be the new face of white nationalism. Now he's working against it.
"Derek Black was supposed to be the new face of white nationalism. His Godfather is David Duke his father created the White Nationalist Website Storm Front, black himself used to host a radio show and run workshops, pushing a white nationalist message, and then in college he changed. Listen to Derrick talk about his journey out of hatred. How belief in white nationalist ideals are more widely held than you'd think and the danger of the trump presidency poses to our nation as he rides white nationalist coat-tails here at all right now. Derek Black, welcome to the podcast Hey Jonathan thanks for having me on so I didn't know anything about you. Until my colleague at the Post allies SAS low sent me an email saying I've just written this book. called rising out of hatred. It is about this guy named Derek, black who was basically. That, the era parent to to the throne, if you will of white nationalism who came through on the other side and I read, the book was fantastic. Did the PODCAST WITH WITH ELI? put it out into the world. And unbeknownst to me. You were. A, subscriber to this podcast, and just was on a walk, and you were listening and discovered. You were the subject of conversation. That's exactly my experience. I was still living in Chicago, that point and I was doing my morning commute and your show came on, and it's it's that weird surreal experience where you you slowly realize that this is not just weirdly appropriately interesting, but actually it's just about you so. Specific, while what? What was fascinating about your story? Is How well one you know your story is. You know. In some ways, quintessentially American in you know white supremacy and white nationalism is woven into the DNA of America and hearing your story in the time of trump. Made it even more salient? Why did you participate with with Eli to do the book that he did? And then we'll get into present day stuff, right? Part of it was personal relationship. ilize that amazing writer and his real skill is in telling complicated stories and I. I feel like my story doesn't make sense without all the context of that I not proud of IT I. don't look back and try to. ask for any kind of praise from it in fact, I'm still quite embarrassed than like filled with a lot of shame. That I spent twenty years of my life, really committed to white nationalism, and so if if there was anything good, that was gonNA. Come out of it was gonna be in telling the stories of everybody around at that time all the people who who who were affected by my family's activism, all the people who still be engaged me whether that was in protesting the fact that I was on campus or whether it was. Was In my quiet conversations where they would dismantle all the evidence that I thought my ideology was supported by in all of that together felt like the the important part of it, so if I was going to wrestle with it it just it needed to be in the hands of someone and in a format that could really encompass all that Andy. Lie is such a fantastic storyteller of that. He was the perfect person to tell your story so now that we are a couple of minutes into this conversation and people are probably still wondering. Who is this Derek Black Guy who are you or who were you? I was born into one of the leading families of the White Nationalist Movement that my father founded the first white supremacist website online before the worldwide web even came online by his his closest friend, growing up was David Duke they come together doing white nationalist activism in the nineteen sixties and seventies They had run the clan together. They had quit the clan and gone into. Into politics together they had done all of that for decades by the time I was born, and I spent the first decades of my life, growing up with all these leaders of this movement that they had built coming over to the house or traveling around the country to meet people who had fought against the civil rights movement in the nineteen fifties who are now elderly men. Men sitting around the table, talking about how they were so worried about the direction of the country and I wasn't just a bystander. I got deeply involved at ran for Republican local county office in two thousand eight and been won that election, and became a national story in my own right, and all of that was up until I went to a small liberal Arts College and And had a year experience there being the most controversial thing on campus, because it was a a social justice oriented community that was now trying to wrestle with the fact that explicit premesis was living on their campus, and after many years there, my my experience was wrestling with how my ideology was was harming. People out was factually wrong how it was How is just in? It was not able to be something that I could continue committing to that I that I could be feel good about myself, and so publicly condemned in two thousand thirteen, and have spent the years then since then just trying to figure out what is my. What is my role in? What is my responsibility now?
"You know. What of all do you know anything about the war? Julia. I know that Britain was involved Yup. Ask you know what that would have been a good guess at the very least. South Africa is. Is Part of it. Yes, you are correct on both counts, so that is pretty. Well. You know what that was more than I knew when I started researching this topic so congratulations. I didn't know about Britain but I did not know about. South Africa and I will not be referred to it as that from for the rest of the I promise so to begin with the conflict is commonly referred to as the second bower war. Since the first war, which was December eight, hundred, eighty, two, Martini one only lasted. A couple of months was smaller. It was just it was really a war. It was kind of a battle. The Word Bower B. O. E. R. means farmer. And it's the common term for Afrikaans speaking white South Africans descended from Dutch east India Company's original settlers at the Cape of Good Hope, so these are white. South Africans who speak Afrikaans which is. Like a sort of a weird hybrid between like Dutch and then. African it's kind of a cool language. In South Africa it is officially called the South African War. And, they also sometimes called the second Anglo Bower War and in fact, according to two thousand eleven BBC report. Most scholars prefer to call the war of eighteen thousand nine tonight to the South African. War, thereby acknowledging that all South Africans White and black were affected by the war, and many were participants all right Yup so. Why, why why did they go to war? So here's the war far away. Though so far away so it as as with many wars, there's a long history to it. So the origins were complex, and they stemmed from more than a century of conflict between the bowers and Britain, so let's with a little background, the first European Settlements Africa was founded at the Cape of Good Hope in sixteen fifty two. And thereafter administered as part of the Dutch Cape Colony. The Cape was governed by the Dutch east India Company until its bankruptcy, the late seventeen hundreds, and thereafter it was directly by the Netherlands. The Netherlands took over when the Dutch east India Company collapsed. The British occupied the Cape three times during the Napoleonic wars as a result of political turmoil in the Netherlands and the occupation became permanent after British forces defeated the Dutch at the battle of Blouberg in eighteen o six. So at the time, the colony was home to about twenty six thousand colonists settled under Dutch rule and a relative majority still represented old. Dutch families brought to the Cape during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. However close to one fourth of this demographic was of German origin and one sixth of French huguenot descent, so you got a little bit of a mix. It's mostly dislike dissenters like descendants of Dutch people from way back when but also a little bit of German a little bit of French. So divisions amongst these people were likelier to occur along socioeconomic rather than ethnic lines, however, and broadly speaking colonists included a number of distinct subgroups, including the bowers, so the bowers were like the the farmers for all intents

"Jonathan, Kaye part, and this is Cape Up. My guest has been her states. Secretary of Health sees represented her State in Congress today. She is said to be on Joe. Biden's vice presidential shortlist in chose it. She would be the first lat next American on a presidential ticket. She is New Mexico Governor Michelle Luhan Grisham. Hear what she has to say about that and her states response to Corona virus in this special case up live episode right now. Governor Welcome! You know I'm delighted to be on your show. Nice to meet you spend a little time with you Jonathan. Likewise. Thank you very much for being here now. I mentioned that you were the health secretary. You are a member of Congress because they gave you incredible insight, I think and how to deal with the corona virus early on you declared a statewide health emergency on March eleventh when there were only four cases in your state. What did you see that pushed? The pushed you to move so quickly. Well two things that you know that this virus is moving, and so it comes with travelers we've got commuters were movie Hijab I was still dealing with folks who were trapped on a cruise and California and I've dealt with the pandemic before and the. You Start and the more aggressively you start, the better control and management efforts you have in. This is the problem because you can't see the pandemic everyone I think falsely assumes it won't come here. The it'll be easy, and we'll wait until we see what's happening because I think for too many leaders. It's easier to explain you have to move immediately. Otherwise it rages out of control and we're seeing that all across the country now. What we follow up, you said you've been through a pandemic before. which are you talking Ebola or something else? Blue so we had two issues. We had a flu epidemic I said pandemic epidemic in two, thousand, seven, two, thousand eight, and then in two, thousand and five. We had a flu vaccine shortage so when you are in a state where you've got higher. Per Capita. Issues related to chronic issues for children and adults, and that you have a higher death rate then from influenza we'd have a third of the capacity of healthcare providers and hospitalizations I literally had to join with illiinois to. Import flu vaccine from Canada Rich. You really couldn't do then and we found A. Soft, can I say loophole and brought it in and I protected Mexica residents then <hes> we took. Out of flu vaccine, so I took all the mercury out of it to further protect new Mexicans. I wouldn't buy anything that had. Mirasol in it, and then when the epidemic was coming in the same thing, he didn't have sufficient investments in public health, so getting to people getting them vaccinated partnering with limited. A. Private Provider Group was really challenging so <hes> probably answering this too long Jonathan but in December I knew this was coming. I asked my teams to start planning in early January, so we began to have round tables and start looking about where we was secure. And testing supplies. That's really interesting. You started focusing this on in December. And then moving with your staff in January, so you anticipated what could happen, but didn't you anticipate the inaction from the federal government in terms of having a national strategy? No in my wildest dreams I would not be spending my known specific time finding supplies testing supplies, and the right manufacturers, trying to figure out which instruments right the FDA was going to authorize in an emergency use environment, then test for the for the virus, so not every instrument was available. Not every then re agent is available every testing because they're not all. They weren't at the time universal, getting swabs and then chasing. And, then, in my wildest dreams I wouldn't be dealing with the federal government who would literally then take the things that you secured and redistributes them for the country while you want it to be a country focus. Because it wasn't it meant that you were fighting? Frankly with other governors and FEMA to get the adequate supplies into your state, and now we're seeing it occur again because there was without any federal strategies, still now that you have these outbreaks, governors are in the same situation chasing down supplies and P P and trying to adequately cover their first responders is the most outrageous environment I've ever worked on worked in in my entire career.

"It's been all about trying to get rid of a public policy initiative that brought healthcare over twenty million people, and to your point right now donald trump. Has Bill Bar in the Supreme Court trying to get rid of the affordable care? Act, if they win twenty three million people in our country will no longer have the health care that they need. And it will also then allow the bans on preexisting conditions that we had before. So this is a serious issue. In the midst of a pandemic, that has killed now over one hundred twenty eight thousand people in our country, and it speaks to the heartlessness speaks to the motivation that is about political gain as opposed to what's in the best interest of the health and wellbeing of the citizens and the people of our country.

How the politics of racial resentment is killing. America's heartland Nestle the director of Vanderbilt University Center for medicine. Health and society put a human face on the opposition to many policies that would save lives and livelihood a warning of the lengths to which the white working class voters could either have underlying racism or be manipulated to vote in support of wealthy donors corporations but against their own life stance. And it's just been on steroids since this pandemic started. Listen to mental. Explain why those anti stay at home protests in state capitals Egged on by the president that historical pattern and why the politics racial resentment is a deflection. That works right now. Jonathan Metzel. Thank you very much for coming back to the PODCAST. It's great to be back. I you were just on the podcast a couple of months ago and I try not to go back to Previous guests sooner than say six months but the situation that we're in right now with the with covert nineteen sort of demanded that you come back. We had on Reverend William Barber talking about the racial disparities that we've now been forced to reckon with with the corona virus. And you sent me a message. Reminding me that everything that you wrote about in Europe antastic book dying of Whiteness is playing out in this corona virus and the covert nineteen pandemic. Talk about that well. The book I wrote Diana Whiteness was was really. I mean I who knew at the time but what I was talking about in. That book was about the ways in which there were kind of undercurrents of white racial resentment that shaped Attitudes among politicians and certain white voters particularly in mid in America. That am caused them to what you would think. Vote against their own biological self interests and so the story. I told him that book was a story. About how for example and working class and lower income white voters rejected the affordable. Care Act. Which would have helped them a lot because they thought that immigrants and minorities were gaming the system and I looked at The rise of guns as symbols of kind of white self protection. And you know that was. That was a a book that I thought was kind of how to beginning a middle and an end it was kind of a warning of the lengths to which when white working class voters could either have underlying racism or be manipulated to vote in support of wealthy donors in corporations but against their own life stance. And it's just been on steroids since this pandemic started. I mean everything from in you know. It seems like the best possible for many red states would be to expand Medicaid if people health and transferred this moment of dire need and you would think people would be rallying to get Medicaid. It would help them. Not just medically would help them. Financially not incur bankruptcies pay less for medications but instead trump has been actively actively not expanding Medicaid and and people have been supporting him and the same thing with guns are the the gun story as is eight hundred percent rise in gun sales in some states in in in conjunction with this idea And and so kind of across the board this idea and and of course brought to bear most recently by these protests are across across many red states where people are literally out there saying and we we want to support trump even if it costs us in our family members and our communities days and months and years of our lives and and the racial currents are just. I mean just absolutely unavoidable. Okay so let's let's start with the with those protests because as I watched the video coming from Lansing Michigan and other places and people is openly. Define what we all knew when they were protesting to be true that the corona virus is spread. If you are not socially distancing if you're not wearing a mask if you're shaking hands if you have any kind of physical contact and these votes were acting in total defiance of everything of everything we know up the is it. Are they being irrational in what they're doing or are they being rational in that support for Donald Trump and resentment of and racial resentment are enough for them to ignore science? Well I think there are a couple of things that are important to keep in mind about this process. I just always make clear when I talk about them. That those protests are not all all white Americans. They're not all trump supporters. That's a kind of vote very vocal very threatening fringe group. That has gotten a lot of validation from from trump and a lot of funding from the Devos family and other places and so in a way. Because we're all stuck at home. It's hard to see that there are a lot of people in red states who are terrified of what those protests represent Democrats and Republicans and so first of all. I think it's unfortunate just given the way we're all many of us at at home right now and it looks like that's every Republican out there and that's not the case that being said I try to avoid saying that anything is irrational You know I think would my research. I came to realize that there are there are deep and ideology said that makes sense to people and I think this idea of government. Overreach this idea that Social PROGRAMS ARE GONNA benefit immigrants and minorities and and at the expense of of white people. do these ideas are very very ingrained and I think that also when you when you combine that with a moment of real despair this I this moment of you know not just a more the risk of mortality but also this fear of you know real real economic trauma that people back on their deepest their deepest fears. We've seen that you know the rise of Nazi Germany on down that people when they're who've been there the most desperate it's not like they become the most centrist They they become the most terrified. And so it. At a moment like this people fall back on extreme ideologies. It's not like everybody's GonNa come to the middle and I think trump has been very artful at manipulating those anxieties and shifting blame race. That I think are very dangerous but it's not I. It's not irrational. If it's based in a particular reading of reality and and also Lib reality for a lot of people you know one of the big stories to come out of out of the corona virus coverage is the the health disparities disparities in impact that overwhelmingly the victims of Corona virus have been Americans and other people of color particularly African Americans. What role do you think that plays in the mindset of people who might be looking in saying you know that's affecting them and so therefore I don't need to be concerned about this? Well I think certainly that's been framing an edge of course true right in other words. Many of the people who died in this early phase are emigrants of members of minority groups. People who have to either have to go to work In in conditions are live in areas. Where there's a lot of density I certainly think that that led to a feeling of kind of white and bits ability especially in the people. I've been interviewing people in this idea that oh no. This won't be because this is kind of black and Brown problem. I certainly think fueled part of the feeling of invincibility surrounding mess But it'll be interesting to see. I mean I think there are two caveats that narrative of I is that I guarantee you. A lot of these deaths in rural white America are being under reported. Just because there's not great data gathering and so I do think there's a lot of despair in in rural areas that we're not hearing about and and I think the other point is because of these protests and particularly when these red states start opening up if if they do which seems insane. We're GONNA see a lot of of working class white very sick and dying and so it'll be interesting to see what happens to that narrative when it really starts to hit home for people but will that narrative hit home for people. I guess the question is does it take people being personally impacted by this before they see the utility in all the things that we've been doing now well again. I think that the the one main narrative is that people become more more ideological and when they become more desperate that has been trooper centuries and an especially in moments of extreme crisis like this that people the more the more desperate they become the the more.

That up that that is such a thing I remember listening to you on. Wfan Y in the eighties and the g spot was a big conversation. And even though I was a preteen at that point trying to figure out. What on Earth is this g spot? And what is the clitoris at all of this other stuff now some forty something years later? I'm glad to hear that this was. This was not a thing but before I asked I Dr Ruth. I asked folks on twitter and facebook to send me questions that they might want to ask you and I WANNA get into those in a moment but for someone like you who is constantly busy you are in. You were before before saying at home. We all had to stay at home. We're in constant motion. How are you dealing with only being able to be in your apartment so very difficult however I am very disciplined? It is very interesting.

Thank giving me an automatic doctor for I've done but I really come in and doubts class ship in psychology. So that's easy money from people like you Jonathan. We should point out that this is also significant. Because you were a sniper in what is it the Haganah back in was that nineteen forty nine hundred forty eight so you ever I. If you remember badly wounded yes. There was a bombing and in Jerusalem. And that's why I sort of giggled. When you talked about waltzing in to Ben Gurion University because you almost lost your.

I've voice in doubts shape of a hundred thousand dollars that is. I don't ask people like you. I got it off. Will you will. Then that means you are fantastic fundraiser. So Dr Ruth. Let me get you in answering some of these questions I actually. I got quite a few and to go back to two one of the things that we can't do anymore at least in the short term and that is to touch each other and someone on twitter who goes by the handle not a tweeter sixteen asks. Do you have any ideas for how people can resolve touch deprivation and related issues while still abiding by social distancing guidelines? What I'm saying is all has to listen to the guidelines out no no two ways about it however I want the second is for for Triumph Africa or the Board. I told the Edison peepers con Edison. Because they had given US money I said from now on. I'm going to tell everybody to do it. You know what that it is to have sex with nights on so what. I'm going to ten all of you and this this It scores an adjustment but eventually the authorities we tell us it's okay to touch again and one one of the things that people need to keep in their mind is they have to keep a good it by saying we are all in this together and the all they have to survive. So it's very sad that so many people I know making it because of some health issues.

A hoax were all used. The word him calling the whole impeachment process a witch hunt. You're in we're we're in a unique spot of being both on judiciary and intelligence. has this whole thing Ben. A witch hunt a hoax. It's a sham fake anything but that in actually. What's so remarkable? Is that with so few witnesses and so few documents we were able approve so much And I I told Dan. Goldman are lead investigator. Who'd worked for the Southern District of New York on so many high profile cases I sedan? You probably we never in your life have had a case of such great magnitude with so little to work with because the president one covers any witnesses when give us any documents but what what is revealing. Is that every time we get a new document. Not from the president usually like a public request or someone comes forward with every time we find a new witness they all reinforced. What we believe to know that the president was running this shakedown scheme? We've never seen a witness come forward or new document produced that goes in the other direction it continues to reinforce this shakedown scheme. Well I was about to ask you. You said you're able to get these documents through other means and testimony that you the the proof so much. What was proven yet so we proved that you know the president? From as early as the beginning of twenty nineteen hours was running this shakedown scheme with the Ukrainians where he was insisting that they had to even as far back as President Porsche Anka before presence Lindsay was elected that they they would have to conduct investigations to receive. US aid and investigations that would only benefit the president not benefit any American because it would relate to his political political campaign and so we saw that the president was at the center of the scheme. He wasn't you know an answer Larry Beneficiary of the scheme that he was directing the scheme. We saw that he ordered. Rudy Giuliani to really run this scheme. And you saw through Gordon Sean Lennon. Kurt Volker that the president said you know work with Rudy Eh. What it comes to Ukraine you saw in the New York Times Rudy Giuliani said. Back in May twenty nineteen were not meddling in an election were meddling in an an investigation and the we part there is so important. Because he's not talking about himself he's talking about he and president trump and then of course through the witnesses. This is who did have the courage to come forward. We saw through Dr Fiona Hill in the tenant. Curnow ihnen that there was a connection between investigations and the cranium getting getting a White House meeting. And then of course through Sunlen we later learned and Mulvaney at that was also tied to Ukrainians getting the aid. So with very little We saw the president put his own interests above ours above our national security and election integrity. So you mentioned Fiona Hill Lieutenant. Colonel Bandmann Ambassador Sunlen a person who didn't testify then but who were hearing a lot from now is Lev Parnis. Why didn't he testify during the hearings and both judiciary and intelligence you know? Mr Parnell was indicted for campaign finance crimes a during the early stages of our investigation. And as I understand it You know he had many of his electronic devices and documents. Documents and records seized by The southern district of New York prosecutors and did not have documents that he could produce to us and did not give us documents until just this past weekend and our investigators who've already got a lot of things to work with. Were able to go through a lot of devices documents. To produce some records that also reinforce that again there was a priority on getting the Ukrainians to do investigations. That Rudy Giuliani Elhiani. again was acting Donald Trump's agent and that marie-yvonne which was someone that they had to smear in clear to run this corruption campaign Do you believe left Parnasse. Because they're folks Within the Republican Party who are casting doubt on what he has to say AH casting doubt on his role the president is out there. Saying I may have been in a picture with the guy but I hardly know the guy I is. He credible I would not necessarily believe left Parnis but I believe his documents and I believe the witnesses around him that corroborate what he has so if he was the only person saying what he's saying. I would be highly skeptical. But he's not a have phone records of left parties. We see him in contact with Rudy Giuliani at the time that Uganda which is being smeared. We see him in contact with chairman. Newness who is also connected to the White House in many ways we see Left In the notes that he provided is surveilling ambassador. You'RE GONNA Vich. We see notes about running investigation. Let me stop you on that. Surveilling Ambassador Aso's Avant Ivanovich. Do you believe that you know the president Set on the July twenty five phone. Call that she's going to go through some things That's the mob talk rock. The president often uses in those are the tactics he uses and so I do believe that but again as a former prosecutor witness parnasse you would really want to be careful unless you had documents and other witness accounts. That can corroborate it. And I think here you do and you know when I when I listened him on the Rachel Maddow show talk about how humiliating it was to be frogmarched out of his house in the dark hours of the morning by the FBI and he has to walk by hi. This trump shrine that he's built with all the donations. He's made that. He was humiliated and that his wife was embarrassed And you just have to think that the country that he comes from being corrupt as it is Ukraine being part of the Soviet bloc when he was there if you were making contributions helping out a leader you would be protected. Fortunately and we have a rule of law here where the F. B. I.. Still independent of the president. So He's not GonNa get away with it and I think you can see. He's talking about that humiliation he's realizing Donald Trump is not going to protect him. He's being arrested for contributions he's made at the trump team and then of course and the public campaign campaign. Trump is throwing him overboard saying he doesn't even know the guy so it's his pride. I think more than anything that's probably driving him. Coming forth is something that's interesting is how long among the Justice Department has had all of this parnasse information that's been revealed is surprising to you that the Justice Department that is run by attorney attorney. General Bill Barr who is basically turned himself into the president's personal lawyer. Are You surprised that Bill Bars Justice Department is allowing this to happen. Well I I would just say I in defensive prosecutors. They don't move on political timetables and they certainly don't let you you know defendants drive. You know when records are released so I would typically give them the benefit of the doubt that if they are still working this investigation if they're looking at other characters actors they don't want evidence out in the public that could compromise investigations. They may be running however there are there are real reasons to ask. What is bill bars involvement Golfman in this case is he peeking into the files Or have his hands into the investigation of SDN why prosecutors St and why prosecutors are notoriously fiercely independent and. I would just hope that we would hear about that If Bill Barham was doing that but I I think you know we need to know and if bill the bar you know had the guts to come to Congress and he refuses to do so. That's a question we could ask. It will your former prosecutor. What is your gut tell you I you know I I asked a former? Sdn Y prosecutor this very question a couple of weeks ago and he told me knowing Sdn y that he thinks what's that if there was any meddling in their investigations that because of their reputation and how much treasure that reputation. You'd probably hear them speaking ICAN out so I want to help. That's still true. My Gut right now is that those prosecutors are probably holding on tight to those cases but at the end of the day bar a high profile indictments bars and have to sign off on those and so the question is you know is he. Green-lighting redlining any high profile indictments that that evidence could lead to in one of the things that the parnasse information reveals is that things are still happening in SDN. Why is still active? There are still zillow investigations going on and I'm wondering what recourse does the Judiciary Committee have in response to the par- information is. Could we see a a situation where the committee calls him in for testimony. Well we WANNA certainly here from bar anyone at justice to talk about whether that independence is still there that those prosecutors can do their work now with Parnasse. We believe that the forum that's most appropriate right now for any relevant witness as relates to impeachment is the Senate and that Parnassus really illuminates why the Senate should have relevant witnesses testify and of course the the four that we we see our Bolton Mulvaney Blair and Duffy. Those are the four most relevant. But I think Parnell's is making a pretty good case that he too has relevant information but we do not want to rule out that on how side with the subpoena power that we could bring in people like Bolton who said he would respond now to subpoena or people like partners so with the trial beginning in the Senate And the house managers making the case. What can we expect? Yeah I just a insistence upon having a fair trial you know in that starts Tuesday right. So Tuesday is when this trial is essentially going to begin in earnest. You know the rules will be voted on as far as you know the procedures for witnesses and so really insisting that witnesses like Bolton and others. I can testify. That'll be first and foremost you only need fifty one maybe fifty senators you know. There's this debate about if it's fifty in a tie. If if the chief justice can break the tie vice president pence cannot be a part of the proceedings. He's kind of conflicted out as a vice president impeachment proceeding. So do you need three or four Senator Senator on the Republican side to come forward For these witnesses I was encouraged to see Senator Romney early in the week. Make the call that he wants. Bolton testify testify Senator Collins seems to suggest that she would be there. So you're about you know one or two away from being able to get those types of witnesses and I I really believe that if witnesses like those come in this trend of witnesses beget witnesses. Documents beget documents will continue to prove true and it doesn't help the president. It helps the case that we may from the beginning that he put his interest above. America's Kenan argument be made that the president indeed got a fair trial. Even if witnesses don't testify justify America won't get a fair trial if witnesses don't testify and and I think that's what's most important is that both the president and Americans get a fair trial as we know what this president his all about the theater. He's all about the picture as it appears on television division. He is has been said many times. He is producing a television show every day. Would you be surprised if the president threw a wrench into everything and either decided to change up his legal team. And you can tell me if if he would be able to do that midstream. Or and this is not out of the realm of the possible given who were talking about just deciding to show up and testify on his own behalf. There were moments during the impeachment inquiry in the house. Where part of me you know every time the door open and you guys going to walk through and just bring the theatrics more into the room in addition.

"Means to provide reparations and to recognize that it should be reparations for African Americans and reparations for native Americans because those are the only two communities that have ever been by by law removed from access to property freedom liberty and ownership that those are there separate conversations. But I do believe that. We need to have a national conversation about reparations and that we should come up with an answer that question but I my winningest gutter line sync you for being here on the fact that every time the recommend into this place is a lot of seniors. I come in very frequently to see all the forms and I would like to ask you question you are of whoever is going to beat appreciation day. Decide that you are going to be device precisely what you're GONNA do us by shooting in order to change the situation put Cordola country. Think you think so. That's a lot of things I have to get done. REWIND rewind the tape. So here's what I would do you. I believe that we have to have national not not we now. We know what. The laws are so reparations. One of the challenges has been that we haven't even bothered to engage the the conversation and we have to understand not only what should be done. But how how we disperse it what it looks like what the contours are. We know what voter suppression looks like. We've had it for two two hundred forty years. We know what the solutions are. We've seen it come about states. Like Massachusetts in states like California and Wargin Oregon and Washington state. I would simply make federal law those rules but I would put into the Constitution of American the right to vote because there is no constitutional constitutional protection for the right to vote. There's the constitutional protection for your access to it but there's nothing to say it has to be made real by the states and that's what I would do is vice president. I would make that admission to ensure that so. It wasn't until I learned about my history at Spelman College. I truly understood the importance of voting. My parents had all the time but I always ignore them after learning about the African Diaspora Women's suffrage movement in the truth about black history. US did I understand the importance. Burdensome voting either let these histories taught in public schools especially in high school and neighborhood sous demographics experienced the most voter suppression for them to understand why why voting is important in. What are your thoughts? You're right you're correct. In that means that we have to be intentional about changing the structure of our educational system. So we not only teach civics but we treat me teach civics and actual history and the full good and bad battery of who we are. Okay millions Margaritas. Prerogative because we literally have three minutes and I'm going to ask the last the the last two questions one. How many of you know that that? She has a pseudonym. I I write romantic suspense novels. Esa Lena Montgomery See. But you thought you knew everything about about Stacey. Abrams and you have a little bit of good news. I do so apparently now that people know who I am. CBS decided to give me a development deal to turn earn my fourth novel into television series. So it's a development deal which does not guarantee that anybody will ever see it but I'm a step closer to TV and I do I do it. I do apologize to the to the two gentlemen who were standing branding. I didn't see you when I said the last three were there but I do want to end on a on a serious note and ask you this. Given given what we've seen since the campaign president trump and certainly the administration of President Trump. What will let's say about America if president trump is reelected to a second term? That's a legitimate question. This is a man who did not win an election. He won a system and we have to remember that we have the ability to make that system work worked for us if we participate in it what it will say to the world if we do not leverage our power if we do not do everything in are. We don't use every tool in our arsenal to engage and deliver voters. Who stayed home? Because they didn't think there was anything in it for them or try to to vote and were rejected because of the horrific voter suppression laws that exist in our nation. Would it will say is that we have decided it to accept a lesser leadership that we have given not only space to given authority to Xenophobia and racism and bigotry and hatred to misogyny and to someone who's dismissal of humanity is made manifest manifest every day. And if we do that if we do not do everything in our power to not only change the minds of those we we know but to go into places where we try not to stop at the Stop light or we don't go to that town because that's not our place if we don't do everything in our power to defeat him then we will get him again and we will have earned it. Our an action is just as dangerous as his action. And this is a solvable problem. It's called an election but I can tell you not. Every election is won by the person who let me. Let me say this once you know the system is rigged to do two things. You've gotta work to UNRIG it but you've got to overwhelm and at the same time God. We almost overwhelm the system. Even though it was rigged we just fell short. But that doesn't mean we didn't win and I learned a long time ago. Winning doesn't mean getting the thing you want at the moment it's about being willing to keep fighting for it until you get the thing you need the most and that's what we're going to do and that's what we're not.

"Pam Jonathan Kaye part and welcome to Cape up for the past few months. I've been working on something new. Between sit downs and a civil rights retreat in California in January and the faith and politics institutes, civil rights pilgrimage to Alabama in March. I've had the privilege of talking to a variety of civil rights leaders a few of them, you know, many of them you may not, but they're all significant voices. We need to hear their stories. More importantly, we need to heed the lessons of their experience. Because we won't have many opportunities to hear from them much longer. If we're going to understand the civil rights movement of the nineteen fifties and sixties, and how it affects our lives still these are the voices to listen to people like Andrew Young who was with Dr king when he was assassinated. And then I remember he used to say, but. You know, some of us are not going to make it to forty. He said, but if we make it afford it we make a hundred. Well, he didn't make it to forty. So it becomes me. Almost an obligation for me to keep doing whatever I do as long as I can do it, and I'll be eighty seven of the month. And I don't know I make a hundred or not, but you can't waste the experience. We've had. Andrew Young is right. We can't waste their experience. And so for two months each week here on Cape up. We're going to hear their voices. Listen to their stories and try to understand how we can move forward from here. We're calling the series voices of the movement and it will start on April fourth. So make sure you subscribe to Cape up or find it on Washington Post dot com slash podcasts.

"Or people that are standing up and wanting to help provide rational means for people to have self care to come through these tragedies. What about black people? I mean, it's a it's a myth old wives tale slightly true. That we'd that's not what we do. See see one of the things about the trauma trauma leaves no visible scars. So and there's black people we so resilient as of a people as people that we believe that. We're okay. So the first step is to realize that. Would not. Okay. And that's okay that we'll emotion you have to move with it.

It takes community leaders family leaders, the say that okay? I'm a spearhead a self care safe-space. Well, we address how do you feel are you? Okay. That's what we have to do collectively. So if something as small as a house party of ten family members community members say how are you doing with XYZ which adore we actually had to do that? In Baltimore shared your sentiments when all the shootings going on July, and they were back to back and this guy he was in the right show his permit the right to carry and I was number. So I don't I don't wanna know about anymore. I won't share anything the more. But then I realized I had a responsibility to my community because everybody you seem social media was growing number like, they didn't know how to feel. So what I did was reached out to is called the black mental health alliances. And I say I need you guys facilitate and be on guard. I'm gonna have a safe space where people can unpack they motions I had the the trust of the community. And then I had the respect of the mental health professionals. I'm a lead you support me.

What would you say to him about that argument? I would say Mr. Trump there is nothing more that can be taken from his group. Mothers are supporting secretary Clinton. Most definitely the most dear important human being. And a lot of the reason why we were existing in living and breathing has been taken from us. Do you honestly believe that this group of strong determine black women could ever be used against our wishes for anything that would be in any way, shape or form? Not at our best interest for our families in our communities and our race of people at large. You are sadly mistaken, you're sadly misguided.

"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. No community forum. No medical help for them there there. There's no mental Health Organization.

"And and, you know, delving into the waters of the things that, you know, nobody wants to talk about, you know, accept the quietly talk about it at the water cooler at work or the talk about it behi-. 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 you you really can't have a movement without being involved in it. And and knowing that. The power of social media that is the vehicle chose to use to release my short documentary elite daily, and there was shared about huffed impose what I did was I put it in your face where you cannot refuse to acknowledge that this exactly happening. 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. He was certain and it wasn't. Hey, let me go ahead. And just let me find a way to make them feel comfortable. No, I have to live, and I will contain to live and he will contain to live this day. And that's why you doing the work that you do. And I commend you. I appreciate you feel the love. And I thank you. You know? As an African American and as an African American, man. The litany of cases of police involved shootings and just shootings of of African Americans has just worn down my soul to the point where I had already stopped watching the latest video of the week of someone black being being killed. I just had. No, no, I had nothing left after having written about all the other ones before. And I didn't understand just how much trauma I was suffering until a neighborhood. Local official things called it buys Reneberg council person in my neighborhood came up to me, and she said, so are you not going to write about the shooting that happened here? I mean, you write about this stuff all the time. And yet this happened a block away from where we are right now where you live. And that's when it hit me like I was so not dead. I remember leaving home that hours after it happened with my fiance. We walked out. I looked down the street and saw the motorcycle. Of the person who was killed by the police sought looked at it. Kept onto kept onto brunch. And I bring all of this up..

"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. It was always trying to make them feel comfortable make other people feel comfortable without being just L pre existent enrages people. So when we start having those conversations those having those challenging conversations or you're feeling uncomfortable. Say I recognize. 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?

"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.

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.
