"Now I. Don't think there's any question about that. Thanks for having me tonight I. You know look, we we're talking. We're focusing on the police and law enforcement, because those are what we see on our cameras and videos and on the nightly news, but the fact of the matter is a much broader cultural. Discussion that we have to have that goes way beyond just law enforcement it talks about we need to be taught about healthcare disparities. We need to be talking about the hundred forty million poverty. Those in poverty and Mohan come in this country. We need to have a much broader, not just discussion, but a call to action to help people and I do think we're at that moment. Just like a spoken Kelly Ingram Park. Park a couple of weeks ago at the site of far hoses and dogs in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, three, the shadow of Sixteenth Street. Baptist Church those events a conscious of America. I mean an congress and I think that's what's happened. Now we are at that moment in history where voices are being heard, and people are recognizing the voices and seeing things that they have refused to see for so so long. And Senator, this needs to be partisan, and there are efforts in the house, and the Senate, in fact to my is surprisingly bipartisan, because people are realizing that something needs to be done, there's a there's an effort that house. Democrats put forward the justice and Policing Act your Senate colleague. Senator Tim Scott is leading a different effort. They're not entirely overlapping. But what is your sense of how the Senate move forward on this? Well hoping that we can get some bipartisan agreement on that, and I think you know the House bill that was introduced also been introduced in the Senate. Senator Harrison Senator Booker leading that I'm a CO sponsor of that bill. It's a very strong belts. A good bill I think there will be some overlap with what Senator Scott says. The fact that you've got Republicans in the United, States Senate that are introducing bill at all I. Think is an important step. We need to talk about these. We need to see where we can find common ground and hopefully get something done I like people and the United States Senate and the Congress are seeing this as an opportunity that we haven't had in a couple of generations to really move the needle forward and get something done in. That could help change so many other aspects in America. Senator I WANNA. Talk to you about something that you experience in the south more than we do here in the north and it is this conversation about? Confederate statues and military bases this weekend. Former Senator Jeff sessions is trying to get his old seat back. tweeted Doug Jones vote to remove for all military facilities installations, the names of every soldier who fought for the confederacy, betrays the character indecency of every soldier who fought for the south in a in that bloody and monumental war, whose courage and duty reached the highest levels on both sides, naming US basis for those who fought for the south, was seen as an act of respect and conciliation toward those who were called. To duty by the states, talk to me about that. You. Know look first of all. Let me let me just think my response to Jeff sessions on. That was basically he's not on the right side of history. When it comes to the confederacy never has been never will be, and I want to thank everybody they supported me a that little twitter spat. I really appreciated that, but the fact of the matter is. This is an important step and the vote that came out of the Senate. Armed Services Committee controlled by Republicans bipartisan vote was an important step there Republicans in the Congress in the Senate right now, saying it's time we tom detect those actions and by the way and I don't think people actually remember the fact that they're only. There were only eleven states, or so in the confederacy, but there are confederate monuments across this country in thirty one stay. Yes, so I think it's important to remember that these monuments were erected as part of Jim Crow and in support of the fight against civil rights and the integration and equality for African Americans in this country for all black folks in this country. I point people to confederate Vice President Alexander, Steven Speech in Galveston, Texas, on March twenty, first eighteen, sixty, one, in which he lays out the underpinnings of the confederacy as being based in slavery. I want to talk to you quickly about the pandemic Alabama is being hard hit in fact yesterday, the state added more than a thousand cases. This is the fourth time the fourth consecutive day where the state has added a record number of cases. What do we do about this? Well I think everybody has to pay attention to what's going on. Our governor thought did a good job is compared to some of the other southern governors, especially with trying to open up Alabama, we'll slowly, and she kept giving the messages and our health experts. Public officials have been saying to folks. Please wear masks, please. Social Distance. People are not heeding those requests. They're opening up and they're pretending like nothing's ever happened and we're seeing. It is not a coincidence. This all this is happening two weeks after a memorial weekend when everything was just seemed. Seemed to be wide open in Alabama. I the only way to fight this pandemic right now is to social distance where mask try to sanitize hands. Wash your hands as much as you can. It's the only way we're going to keep this under control, and if people will do that I don't think that that's inconsistent. Trying to open folks up. It will save lives, but we can save livelihood by trying to do smart efficient and follow the data and I'm hoping that People Alabama are going to pay attention to that going into the song. Senator good to see you. Thank you for joining me again tonight. Always good to talk to you Senator Doug Jones of Alabama. Coming up next the FDA, stunning reversal.

He grabbed the officer's Taser as they struggled, and then he ran away as police pursued him. He fired the Taser in their direction while continuing to run away. Then police shot him in the back to times. The officer shot Rashard Book Brooks has been fired. Another officer at the scene was put on administrative leave and the city's police chief has resigned remember. It was only three weeks ago today that a police officer in Minneapolis. On the neck of George Floyd for almost nine minutes choking him to death. That incident sparked protests, not just across the country, but across the globe, which is why what transpired in Atlanta is upsetting and confusing, because unless those police officers were under a rock. They should have known about what's been going on for weeks now day after day, people protesting police brutality and yet it happened again. Ray Brooks was not a threat to anyone until they went to arrest him. I grew up in a place in Toronto. Where sometimes if you failed a sobriety test, sometimes, the police would give you a taxi token to get home. Being Asleep behind the wheel is not a violent offense. We've all heard of the dangers of driving while black now we could add sleeping while black to that. But now we are starting to see police departments across the country respond to these calls for change for example in San Francisco. The mayor announced the police will no longer be sent for noncriminal calls in New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a police reform bill huge one, which includes requiring police to report a weapons discharge within six hours, but these metric measures are all too late for ratio Brooks and his family. As they put it today. They might get justice, but they'll never get back. He was a loving husband. Care and brother, and most importantly to me. Ankle could depend on. Books silly and the brightest smile. And the biggest heart and love today since we were kids tomorrow, we go out to deal with it again. We go have to bear and we'll take. You and say we'd love you know. We gotTA sell policy does. That will love him that much I. Can ever get.

"Things so when you put all that together, this is extremely disconcerting that a policeman who seems to be an honest and forthright human being just doesn't get because it doesn't happen to. You doesn't mean it's not happened. Do you think that the phrasing? defunding police ends up playing into the hands of sort of the the the right which? Already are making this a political issue in election issue. I mean it's. It's SORTA Lazy dichotomies. You're either with Austria with the terrorists right? You're either with the cops here with the looters. There's a huge amount of people in between and I. think that there's a lot of consideration that if you are marching peacefully now, you're automatically against police, and obviously that's not what most people are marching are right rang. Yeah. No I think that's a good point. Couple of things I have in response at first of all. You know I'm a person of color I'm off would reduce grabbing stuff. I'm all I'm all for saying whatever is necessary to be said. In terms of terminology, not to offend the other person, so yeah, we can talk about a creative non of agreement with something, or we can talk about civil disobedience, or we've talked about aggressive violence. Is King did so. So yeah language makes difference. I get that and so I think we should be able to come up with some terms that achieve the same thing that aren't necessarily inflammatory on the other NIA. Give me a break. That's what you worried about the language, the linguistic facility with which you articulate your ideological premise as opposed to black bodies, being killed in the street with the knees of police people, pinching the breadth from a body, and you're concerned about the linguistic. Facility whether or not in alienates me. What leisure what distance from horror you live? And listen to black people who have been trying to warn white brothers and sisters from the get-go of how horrible policing is I don't know, listen to your favorite rapper. kras said WHO's GonNa.

John Thanks Michael for joining us and I WANNA. Ask perhaps our initial shock. has subsided from seeing the video and seeing the response to it, and as we go through different stages of grief. I kind of wonder whether this time it sticks. I want to start by sharing this image that I saw on twitter the other day, and it's this young woman who's holding a sign that says George Floyd isn't a wakeup call. The same alarm has been ringing since sixteen nineteen y'all just kit. Keep hitting snooze. There's no question that they are two different universes of perception rotating around different axes of facts, truths and insight. On the one hand is African. American people other people of Color, as well indigenous folks who have had an experience where they have been as Malcolm X. used to say the victims of democracy according to Berov play right we in. Plymouth Rock Plymouth. Rock landed on us, so there have been people of color there have been black people have been brown red yellow people there have been people in this country, but especially now black people who have been the victims of Slavery Jim, Crow White Supremacy, social injustice, economic inequality, the refusal to acknowledge our humanity, the dehumanisation routinely of the police for centuries. And the police at least for a century or more, and so now bent. The George Floyd incident has occurred. It has indeed awakened so many other elements of the of the of another world that is the other world. The white people who have been privileged than they're oblivious. Who have had the leisure of not no. And so the problem is that many white brothers and sisters who have never been?.

"Connect the dots between this white. Apology, moment And the reality in the very boardrooms and executive Swedes, and elsewhere where different a difference could be made. I appreciate that we have black lives matter banners that that a lot of in the industry, especially in our industry have come forward to to make statements, but for me. The real statement is black lives matter in an actionable way I keep using that word actionable, because it's important, so the hiring of black creatives whether it's black writers directors. DP's editors putting money where your mouth is, and and actually doing something to. To lift the creatives who work in the industry for instance for riders, only four point, seven percent of writers in the industry are black, and the has been a trend for quite a while, so there's an opportunity here to not just use the black lives matter banner to draw viewers, but to actually make a difference and make a difference in the lives of of black create in whether or not they're working and this is. This this is across many industries. It's not it's not just the TV and film. So I wanted to ask you also Charles Blow of the New York Times wrote a very powerful column that really struck me. He was talking about the the liberal Americans, the white seven hundred also back in the sixties who went down south in the freedom summer, as it was called to help against desegregation for civil rights and all the rest of it, but he said in his column. Don't fail us again. Because obviously, it didn't work quite as well when the when the issue was in the north and whites had to. Share their privileged, so he says now we must make sure make a statement that this now is a true change in the American ideology and not an activist chic. Some Street Festival for people who've been cooped up for months. This is not the social justice coachella. This is not systemic racism woodstock. Comment on that and where you think. Whites in America needs to be to make sure that this moves forward. I first Christian, and then then we'll go to Matadi. I think the most powerful statement was made by. Is that the IT founder who's married to Serena Williams? Who? Resigned from his position and insisted that whoever was was chosen for the board to replace him should be a person of color. That's a really powerful statement. And I think that's the kind of thing we have to start addressing. I was having this conversation with my own employer. Earlier were on like a know. It's great that we WANNA do things, but we gotta do practical things because you know what I've worked at this company for twenty years in all the time. You have hired one black man in our medical sciences. Division One in twenty years, and so you know this is something we have to tackle on A. Nuts and bolts ground level. It's not enough as Charles blow says there have diversity woodstock. And Melody finally you know. It's always the case right when there's equality, the privileged look at it as oppression because they're going to have to. They're going to have to share. Do you think this is a moment where the privilege? We'll. We'll share and whether that struggle for equality will actually remain strong when it appears, and it will have to be some will have to give some of their privilege way in order to level the playing field.

We thought we'd explore this moment a bit further, so I'm joined by Christine Cooper himself and by his system melody. Who posted that video online? Welcome to the program. I know that this is not a new video and I. Know that you've spoken about it a lot, but even all these days later to see it I just wonder Christian how you react to that performance. The that happened in front of the camera the you were recording with. I have to admit because I couldn't see it. I could only hear it when you were playing just now and it hearing, it caused a little bit of a pit in my stomach, which surprised me because I've felt like I was not traumatized by this incident, but it still echoes a little bit in my psyche. What went down there? Just the tension of the whole situation. and. Did you then think that I mean just play that out a little bit? I mean let's say you. Have to sell you. I'm shocked, just seeing it. It's to be honest. The first time I've looked at it and it's shocking to me because of the drama. Because of the I duNno, Sir, she called you and then and then this performance that went on. Did you think it could end badly? Well I was very nervous. Because no one wants to have to deal with the police under cloud of suspicion I. don't care what race you are. Let alone when you're a black man, so it made me nervous I. my mind did not fly to the ultimate possible bad outcome, which would have been you know me getting killed somehow in a confrontation with the police. My mine didn't go there. I was just sort of like. Oh, boy! I'm going to have some explaining to do if and when the cops got here. But no I was just took me back. When it happened is up until that point, it was just a confrontation between burder and dog Walker, which sorry to say is fairly standard in the ramble that part of central, park But then she just took it to that dark place, and went racial with it and inject injected that element into into the conflict between us, and that that took me about and at that point I was sort of I. Just had to take a mental breath and say whoa. Okay, we're going there. So, what does this mean? On presented with the choice now, what do I do? Do I- capitulate to this attempt to racial intimidation or do I keep doing what I'm doing because. I was pretty adamant. I was GONNA keep recording with the iphone until that dog was on the leash and I decided. You know I'm not. I can't give into this. I'm just going to keep doing what I'm GonNa do whether I was black. Brown White Yellow Green I'M GONNA. Keep recording and she's going to have to do what she thinks she has to do..
