"You over on Twitter, Joshua Benton is pointing out to approved Louisiana history textbooks for the 8th graders in that state. There are only two apparently. And at least according to this fellow who's tweeting to pointing this out. And Christopher Rees over on daily codes took that and did a little research and built it into a whole piece, welcome to 8th grade textbooks in Louisiana and the story of poor Kate stone for its Christopher. And then this is from the book So you're an 8th grade student in Louisiana. Imagine if you were a black 8th grade student in Louisiana. And this is your history book, right? And it tells the story of young Kate stone, right? A young woman who lives on a plan to a young white woman who lives on a plantation. Well, I'll just read you from the textbook. With more than a thousand acres and 150 slaves, the family's future seemed secure. However, in 1861, after Louisiana's secession from the United States in January and the beginning of the Civil War in April, the lives of everyone on the stone plantation chain. Now how did they change? Well, we ended slavery. Poor Kate. Right. What's this poor white girl who? Her family owns a 150 other human beings? Holds them in enslavement? What's she gonna do? Well, the textbook fills that in. They were able to reclaim their plantation. It was after the Civil War. But due to Emancipation parenthesis, the freeing of the slaves closed parentheses. They lost all of their property in slaves. It was actually the majority of the wealth that the south held was humans. Just let that sink in for a minute. It wasn't their buildings. It wasn't their land. It was the humans that they held in bondage in slavery. Back to the textbook. Kate stone's family, they were able to reclaim their plantation, but due to Emancipation, the freedom of the slaves lost all of their property in slaves. The family had to face the new reality of planting and harvesting their fields with freed people who Kate regretted young Kate. The girl who was the white girl who lives on the plantation. Who, Kate regretted, now demanded high wages. Oh my God. We're running a cotton plantation and we've got to pay our workers. This is a disaster. This is an 8th grade Louisiana history textbook, lamenting. The loss of slave labor, well, not to worry, Louisiana citizens. You still have slave labor. The Thirteenth Amendment did not end slave labor in the United States. It merely compartmentalized it. No, seriously, I'm not making this up. It's an absolute actual fact. In fact, let me find my little handy U.S. Constitution, and I will read to you the language of the Thirteenth Amendment, and here it is. This was ratified on December 6th, 1865, neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime. There of the party has been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction. So slavery may not exist in the United States any longer after 1865. Except and thus, the largest, I believe, parchment is in Louisiana, the used to be a massive cotton plantation. It's now a massive prison. And there's still work in the cotton. Anyhow, back to the textbook. And poor Kate, it is, again, from Joshua Benton's tweet, Jay Benton, at J Benson. It is impossible to understand the years between 1820 and this is from the textbook between 1820 and 1860, without appreciating how the state's people shaped one another. Free and slave native born and immigrant, though louisianans did not always interact peacefully. They shaped one another's lives fortunes and cultures. Gee, you think? I mean, as a Christopher Reed's Reeves over at daily cove's ads a little punctuation here. Look at how great it was before they elected Lincoln and went after slavery. Damn it, things were going great. We just stole her heritage, made music of it and forced them to work for free and it was great. But that Civil War had impacted everyone's fortunes. Well, yeah, I mean, that was kind of the idea, wasn't it? Okay, so we've got that. And then we've got the legacy of that. This is from newsroom dot com. The story by Evan gastaldo, the headline he was lying on the couch when police burst in shot him dead. Johnny Lorenzo Bolton was lying with his eyes closed on an a couch on a couch in his apartment near Atlanta when police serving in narcotics search warrant, why do we even well, that's a whole nother thing. When police serving a narcotics search warrant burst through the front door with guns drawn and no warning, Bolton's stood up and at least one of the officers fired sending two bullets into Bolton's chest. The 49 year old black man died from his injuries. This is like the Breonna Taylor killing in Kentucky. It's just Bolton's relatives and their lawyers wanted to try to get information about the shooting from law enforcement before drawing attention to this killing. But frustrated in those efforts, the attorney sent a draft of a lawsuit to Cobb county officials in mid April, along with a letter threatening litigation. If county officials didn't provide more information and address accountability and compensation for Bolton's death. Bolton's sister Daphne in a recent interview with The Associated Press said for almost 6 months we gave them quiet. That lets me know that that's not what's going to get a response. So it's quiet doesn't get a response. She says, I want my brother's name to ring beside Breonna Taylor's. When they say Breonna Taylor, I want them to say, Breonna Taylor, and Johnny Lorenzo Bolton. I want them to be simultaneous. She also, by the way, once an end to no knock warrants. Yeah. Let's do that. Let's put a national end to no knock warrants. Finally, just in kind of bringing you up to date and catching you up on the state of affairs in America. Congress is looking into January 6th. As you know, this is the House oversight committee has been holding these hearings. And today, today they held a hearing with FBI director Chris ray and with two generals who were in The Pentagon.

Act as the always onto smallville austin podcast where they do retro been on there every season since the start up. It's a great little like dive into how that show is carried over. You're talking about like. I feel like for me and i've said this before like smaller was important to me because that show started when i was in high school and then it carried me through high school college after then it ended the year. I got married. I got married two same month that the show ended may have a wedding wedding attempt of clark and lois on the show. They didn't actually get buried but they had a ceremony. But it did. It was then they tried to get married again. I'm jumping you know and then now here you know superman. Lois is going on and here. I am now married for ten years have children. I'm a dad so now once in superman is more relevant. Oh yeah just like who. I who i am connecting with that so all right so back to you favorite version of superman period so it can be a comic live. Action animated favorite version. I mean my favorite superman is I grew up with the crispy version. But i never really liked him totally like he seems friendly but i was always bothered by the mind whites growing up. I always thought margot kidder's superman was little. You know everybody talks about the and as it did. Bother me when i was figuring out because i did have glass than i always thought. Why would people not recognized by took my glasses off. And so that kind of bothered me and i didn't like a wake speed. Cooperman would take memories away from lowest. He doesn't wise people. I i think people forget about it. Oh i don't know where tyler went. Did pilot going. Have you seen tyler outside yet. Stephen go get tyler seconds finish. Oh there's pilot okay. Good good tyler. Okay good But yeah so. I think people forget that christopher reeve superman actually mind whites lowest fight does it you. And then he doesn't Is the worst. He does it just to make himself feel better. And so that was what i kind of grew up with superman. I i and i think for a long time i didn't like to to. I did like lied. And then he cookware memories and all that kind of stuff of hindering travels. Superman came around. I had i had previously. When i've gotten into comics. That was reading feick. Lebron's aid don earned man of steel death of two fan. Like i was reading that superman. And so when i got an apple. I saw that superman that bronze age death of to fan guy at dhanbad mansfield. I saw that in superman and feet Eat kind of corrected. His version of superman directed. Everything didn't like about. Christopher reeve he never bide below Was even like i guess. I'm gonna have to hope you don't do anything crazy with must secret. And so he really trusted blows and and she was much smarter. was much smarter so i like that world that apple's superman lives in because i think there's something that Relatable for me about being related you. I think that i kind of related because not everything is easy. You have to figure things out. And i liked the world in it because it is reflective of our world and that superman blood after deal with other thing so i don't know i think he'd reach apple superman right. I'm for me. I had thought breast cancer and that happened. Fight right after steel ilk came out. I think the u. two thousand thirteen. I was diagnosed breast cancer. Very or i really hold onto zach soundtrack. When i would go workout at the y. Myself wrong i would watch it at night. So good news so that it just holds Place our heart in just that version of remand made me love to like. I liked superman but henry cavill up though i i will I'll share this. I don't love shared this before. I don't know. I talk a lot so when my wife and i had our second miscarriage the birthday they projected was going to be on the release of man of steel. And i i made a deal with my wife. I was like okay. If the kid comes the day the movie comes out. You have to let me name it clark and stuff and so that kind of carry when we saw the movie in the opening scene and i think you know this is just a quick critique. I've said before. I like the fact that clark is or non crypt on and he's an infant and like they shortly have to send him away. Because i think it resonates apparent lot stronger than like you know. The john burns sending the matrix four on earth because that idea lake so when my son saw was born Shortly to like the next day after he was born they had him in the nick. You for a while. But the first night i had him laying on my chest and he was sleeping there. My wife was asleep. I was awake. I watched deal on my ipad with him on my chest and like that opening scene like you just. It hit me a lot harder. Like if i had to. Just take my son right now off my chest and put him in something like It just it just is much stronger but I totally agree with certain things like you're a brave soul because it feels like if anyone sitting thing about the christopher you know raw i i don't have any precious thing here in a superfan of i will i will critique christopher reeves who've been all day i mean there's some good things about him but but i'm not afraid agree with like i don't like margot kidder has lowest lane in her and clark's relationship because she never likes clark. Yeah always mean now. If you're building these series where you have like pointing you could go but like just in it like he loves lowest but lowest. Loves superman right. That's it like she hates on part in you know christopher rees clark people talk about but that was the clark of the comics like.

"That can actually This in so. I don't have any dog in the race either. But the mandela effect is as you'll see in today's show isn't real this. There's no truth to it and we'll discuss that in the show today. Well okay so My audience knows. I absolutely adore the mandela fact for the mystery that it could be you know and and i love again. I love the conversations with brian because he's always got something cool to say and something that you know that does affect me. I remember. I like i know what he's talking about. I understand all that so again interested to know the other side. I mean now now that there is another side you know that it's been out there interested to know the other side so if i jump them it really simple. Most of them are really simple. Like you know there's so many mandela we could we could do today show on this but you know like like like for example we can go over. Someone's that you want whatever you want. But for example like a lot of people will say that christopher reeves is a mandela. 'cause they remembered as christopher rees so the easy explanation is. Do you know who the first superman was. It wasn't christopher reeves it. Christopher reeve is actually his real name was george rees he was the original superman. Easy confusion there or some people say Fdr the president the thirty second president. What's his name. Franklin delano roosevelt right. John it's franklin delano. Roosevelt wife's name is eleanor. An easy mistake to make someone and so forth but those are just meet giving some simple ones. I can be bumped dollars braces. Ed mcmahon you name it. And i've done so thoroughly the volkswagen logo and much much more. Well we got reason why are adamant about doing. It is because of the implications. So i think it's very interesting. But what they're claiming is one of the things you discern his bombarding articles there's an trading parallel universes an portals or this time travellers or it's some type of magical power doing this and so for somebody to be confused with ed mcmahon worker publishers clearinghouse or not and then job to start his bombarding particles. I think that that's muddying the waters in a tree community. So that's why i do it Okay now i remember. Ed mcmahon working for publishers clearinghouse. I remember the giant checks. So so what's that. What's that one hundred. That is that one correlate. Okay sure so. We'll do that when. I saw the mandela factors. They use this stuff Residue which is actually just parody or people making a fun up something or make a mistake in they call it..

"When i watched that the first time i was like this is weird but it's fine but it's good. You know what i mean like. It was weird. Like they're it's. I wondered how that was going to be viewed twenty five years from now. Would you look back because you know if you ever watch like an superman movie or an old bad like like the ones from the eighties with. Yeah yeah yeah. And i think really literally see from christopher rees at he glides into a lowest is lanes balcony right and i didn't know if the comedy in the movies because they're they're a little silly right there a little silly at times. I wondered if that was gonna kinda stand the test of time but overall this. This'll be cool. I like this. i'm sure so. And then the one and then the say the news. I believe it was on twitter. Where i saw at first. And then you in is the game changer. You know seeing that e a sports college football is coming back. Yeah is coming back. Y'all heisman trophy. Winner and audit fund. Was the nicole award. You could be up for that so you know it's back. They put a little tweet out. They'd be teased. It a little bit as as a as they say in hollywood they tease it just enough and they and it just took buyer. I remember watching sports last night and watch the scott van pelt brit talk about the same thing and how he has. He has a dynasty on. He went he's been playing a game since it was you know came twenty. Fourteen was the last game lifestyle and they brought it out and now he's got like he's in twenty forty four and the character he has spent in college this whole time. He's a he's a all american tight end. I think or something. Like that. And i never got into the dynasty stuff in madden or a college football for me. It's like i lived it. I just wanna play the games. 'cause i've done drafts i've done fantasy league drafts in madden and i'm like i when i did the first one i was like. I'm never going to do this again because i live this life. I'll live being drafted. I live going through free agency. And you gotta do all that when you do franchise mode madden Nhl any of the sports game you have to do negotiating contracts. You gotta talk with agents. And so i was like nope so but i'm with for dynasty for him to take it at far that's called. That's grinding right there. So i appreciate you Svp there f- for me. I'm just going to be happy. That we could get nebraska. Hopefully they have the ninety five team or on their team. I was on and the ninety six ninety seventeen. I would love that. I'll be happy. And i'll play some more accountable. Here's something i think. We have to point out so this game might be out in two or three years. And according to a they're going to have more than one hundred institutions featuring the logos stadiums uniforms game day traditions. And more that fans have come to know and love. but i'm reading that it will not feature the real names images likenesses of current college football players. So that's kind of. I don't think a lot of yeah. A lot of people may not know they might be like all cool. Can't to get whatever whatever then they're going to get the game between now and the released figure it out but that they won't have the real name and image and likeness of a place on it and i don't know about pass pass teams though amman so i don't know if how that works right. They've done it every now and then..
