"Cultural heritage and vast geography. And she does that in an impressively small amount of space. Emily said there are a lot of giant books on this year's list at a 141 small pages. This is not one of them. But it ranges so far and accomplishes so much. It ends with a scene of a family Juneteenth celebration where her grandmother is making tamales, which brings together all of the books strands as an American story. She opens the book saying that she originally felt a little put out or possessive when she first heard of people outside Texas celebrating Juneteenth. But one effect of this book for me was to make me think how shameful it is that everyone in America doesn't celebrate Juneteenth as the next step in realizing the country's founding principles. So I just loved this book. I read it before the Clint Smith. And then as I was reading the Clint Smith, I thought, well, do I love this book any less? And the answer is no. They really achieve different things. Pamela, I know that you like this one too. I want to talk about the book as it stands on its own merits, but it is hard not to talk about it slightly in conversation with the Clint Smith because and we had this conversation many times in our discussion. If the Clinton Smith is more about how we receive history, how we recreate history about oral history. I think that for me, the inadequate read on Juneteenth while very personal also is about the work of the historian and about how we write history about the fact that history comes not from what the story we wish we could tell about ourselves or about others, but the stories that the facts present. And so beginning with the facts, no matter how uncomfortable or difficult they might be, and then going from there. And she tells a story in the book, a personal one, again, that illustrated this conundrum, which is her father, often believed deep in his heart that black people in Texas had a natural coalition with the indigenous people of Texas and that it was surprising to her to realize as a historian that, in fact, the indigenous people in Texas often enslaved black Texans. And so this was not the story that one would want to tell or want to believe, but it was one that the facts presented. And so I thought that the book worked both as a series of assays. And I think Gordon Reed said she modeled it on as his by James Baldwin and the mix of the personal and of her professional role, but really succeeded in using that kind of micro level to tell a much larger story about the history of slavery in this country. All right, I'm going to go to very different book. Our fourth nonfiction book, it is invisible child poverty survival and hope in an American city by Andrea Elliott, Liz, tell us about this one. Well, this is another one of those really big books that we have been talking about invisible child clocks in at 624 pages. I read it in less than 24 hours. It's that kind of book. If you're a regular reader of The New York Times, you might remember Andrea Elliott's 5 part series from 2013 about dasani, an 11 year old black girl living with her parents and 7 siblings in a homeless shelter in Brooklyn. And invisible child goes back to dasani and to her family and tells us what happened in the next 8 years in the time following the period in which dasani was dubbed by her classmates, not always kindly as homeless kid of the year. The book follows dasani and her family from shelters, to courts to welfare offices to therapy sessions to parties. It takes us across all the boroughs of New York City with both triumphant and heartbreaking detour to rural Pennsylvania. This is a book with many spoilers. So I don't want to tell you why dasani is in rural Pennsylvania. The families ups and downs, their joys and disappointments. Leave you with whiplash, worry and the kind of empathy that really only comes from the most meticulous reporting. As Eliot brings dasani life into focus, she also zooms out and we get a look at the cycle of poverty and homelessness and the homeless crisis. And she also takes a very close look at dasani family history, including her great grandfather's role as a decorated World War II vet. He was a buffalo soldier. So we sort of come to understand how dasani story fits into this larger picture. Just on a personal note, I will say I think all of us here at the book review agree that there's it's a lot of fun to be the person who reads a book a couple months before it comes out. It gives you a kind of sense of knowing something that other people don't know. But there are these occasional books that make you feel very lonely when you read them because you have nobody else to discuss them with. And for me, invisible child was one of those books. As I read it in that one long and kind of feverish day, I kept texting my colleagues and saying you have to drop everything and read invisible child. And so now I recommend that you do the same. And Lauren Christensen, I know that you followed my advice and read the book and loved it. So maybe you can tell us your thoughts. You know, I think whiplash is a really great way to put it. There are moments of such overwhelming sadness and loss. You know, when an unjust system rips apart children from their parents time and time again. But I think what makes this book so powerful are really those moments of I don't want to say lightness, but the closeness between dasani and her siblings and of course their father, but also their mother in the face of unthinkable odds this family will really stun you with just insistent love and humor and a really superhuman tenacity. Liz is something to up so well. One thing I'll just add is how moved I was by Elliott's ability to balance journalistic rigor with so much heart. I think there are some instances when the journalists ideal of objectivity of removing yourself from a subject have to give way to the journalist humanity. And I think that shows through really brilliantly in this book, I think it was a decade she spent really ethnographically observing the day to today lives of a single homeless family in New York City. Elliot doesn't just record their fates. She really inevitably impacts it. She doesn't hide that fact. Sometimes when these family members have no one else to turn to, Elliot is simply the only person who is reliably always there. And she explains in this really powerful afterward that for families like dasani is and really for any of us to a degree, you know, whether or not someone simply shows up, it can really mean the difference between life and death. So it's just a remarkable achievement. Lauren Liz, thank you. We are up to our final book on the list and our second book in translation. The book is the Copenhagen trilogy.

"Loved this biography and has some thoughts. Sometimes you come across books that just based on their subject matter, you know that you're bound to love. And this one, when you see a book where in the page two or 300, she's still like 14 or 15 years old. I was like, how is this gonna work? But the power of the book is actually, I think you said it, I'm it's granularity. It's this kind of pointless portrait of the artist. We see her developing those day by day. And what she's struggling towards is self expression and I just love this kind of extreme close up that we get of how she develops her confidence. She learns to trust her own creative powers. It just feels so it feels so special the way Clark is put it all together. We see all the setbacks and the successes. She's not idealizing plas in any way. We see her vanity and her insecurity and more than anything else we've seen this insatiable need to write to create. The other thing I really appreciated about the book was the larger campus that Clark gave us, which is pretty amazing. We see a very fully fleshed out mid century Cold War world in which classes operating in a time of just very repressive conformity. We learn about just how mental illness was treated at the time and the way class own possibilities were just so confined. The walls against which she was pushing. And all this makes you sort of root for her as a reader. I think he said, it's family. You feel like you get to know her so well. So that when this inevitable moment arrives because if you know anything about plants that she died by suicide, you know, when that moment arrives and I knew it was coming of course, it still just filled me with such sadness to sort of losing her and her unique mind. Well, thank you. Our second book on the nonfiction side is how the word is passed, a reckoning with a history of slavery across America by Clint Smith. MJ over to you. I'm so excited that this book is on our list because I don't think there's any more pressing issue than how we talk about our history and our past. And Clint Smith in this book does it brilliantly. How the world is passed is not just about our history, is not just a dive into our history, but it's a dive into how we tell the stories our history and Clinton does that by visiting a handful of places in the U.S. from Monticello to Angola to New York City. And then one place abroad, and he looks at historical landmarks there. And he looks at how tour guides discuss the history, how visitors discuss that history. And what that conversation really looks like, what does it look like when we're trying to understand what came before us? In addition to just being very revelatory about some facts about these places, again, I mentioned New York City as it's discussing the past and specifically black history, how these places were implicated in the American slave trade and how that reverberates to today. You learn more details and the atmosphere about what made these places how they operated and how we can still see them today. I think Clint smith's superpower is not just his writing, but how he listens, and that comes through on every single page. Because Klan is not just telling you how people tell the story of this history. He's a character and he's a central character in this book. He's telling you how people tell a specifically him a black man in this history, which is to say, you are looking at people processing their own understanding history, telling it to someone and then realizing their own comfort level of telling something, maybe the exact rate something or the downplay something and you're watching them grapple with the idea of history as it lives within them as they try to share it with someone else. I think Clint as a writer and as a listener is empathetic, he is rigorous. He is poetic. And as a result, this book, you come away with a very immersive understanding of what got us here as Americans. I know Emily that you like this book as well. I did MJ and I agree with everything you've said. I will echo MJ by saying his timings, his timing is pretty impeccable, given that we're in the midst of a national, often painful and politically fraught. Reckoning with the very history that he's writing about, Clint Smith is a poet and a journalist. And he's also got a PhD in education. And I think this is important to mention because although his book is about history, the history of slavery and its legacy today, his agenda is not so much didactic as it is documentary. What he's really interested in is what we Americans choose to know. Choose to retain or ignore about our past. And this is what he means by how the word is passed. He's talking about our selective understanding, our selective memory. What do we as a country choose to know? So it's a very subtle and sophisticated project that he's undertaking. And he goes about it in such an unassuming manner as MJ remarked. He's a visitor at these sites, engaging people he meets along the way. And he does an incredible amount of listening and observing very little confronting or judging, even though much of what he encounters and records amounts to this dismaying catalog of willful ignorance. I so admired his restraint. One of the most, I think discomfiting visits he makes is to a chapel at a confederate cemetery in Virginia where 30,000 confederate soldiers are buried, and he tries to engage the tour guides at the cemetery in a conversation about how they present and discuss the confederate army and the Civil War with their visitors. And he's repeatedly politely rebuffed. I think you could take the Civil War aspect totally out of it and enjoy the beauty of the chapel's Tiffany stained glass windows as one guide. And this is sort of a classic moment in the book where we get this kind of flickers of embarrassment and shame, but a kind of unwillingness to look at the source of that shame or that embarrassment. And I think this is the question that Smith keeps circling in this book. What is it that keeps us from looking at the actual facts of our history and what will it take to get us to do that? Emily, thank you. Our third book in nonfiction is on Juneteenth by Annette Gordon Reed. Greg over to you. In some ways, this book pairs naturally with how the word has passed. There are overlaps, especially where Clint Smith visits Galveston and relates the history of Juneteenth when word of Emancipation finally reached Texas. So the books amplify and inform each other in places. But what a net Gordon read is ultimately setting out to do is fit the story of Texas itself into the American story. And she does that in a series of essay like chapters that offer a sweeping multicultural history about the state's indigenous routes and Latino population and slavery and the cowboy mythology. All of that on the one hand. And on the other hand, it's a personal history. It's a memoir of her own childhood in east Texas. She was the first black student to integrate her town's white elementary school. So sort of a Texas version of ruby bridges, but without all the national media attention. And she gets into the teenage appeal of 6 flags, great adventure and illuminates what each of the 6 flags is. She tells us that Texas students have two different units devoted to Texas history and primary school. I think it's maybe fourth and 7th grades. For me, growing up in the New York suburbs, I learned nothing of Texas history except whatever mythology I picked up through pop culture, the Alamo and all of that. And one thing that Gordon Reed is doing here is undertaking to counter those myths with a fuller understanding of the state's rich.

I'm giving malkovich way too much credit in my mind but i like when i last watched this movie i was rather blown away by the gentleness of eastwood's performance. This is a broken down.

"Okay let's do our lists because we're getting on in years ourselves number five favorite. Clint eastwood film. Now we are accounting for both films. That clinton has directed films that he is starting adam. You've got a barn burner at number five. I'm gonna let you make your this is. We're going to go old school. Clear out for adam. Whole shot clock. I don't truly believe those. But i believe it enough to make you guys talk about this movie again because i can never not think about it which is fifteen seventeen to peres. Which has become a bit of a film twitter rallying point and a bit of a mean because of the scene where the guys just ordered you lotto and which is in some ways the least effective of the star quadrille because american sniper. Whatever else you say about it. And i don't like it as a great performance by bradley cooper definitely sully has tom hanks as the conscience of america. Which typecasting paul. Walter hauser's incredible and richard jewel. Which is the only eastwood movie. So far. I've actually reviewed for ringer. And i tried to give the due to his performance because amazing fifteen hasn't have actress ended has not actor so it's a real test of the one taken lunch style. Plus they're playing themselves in a way that's not fully successful. But then who am i to judge because they are playing themselves recreating things that happen to them. So if i say. None of the skills plausible. I think the jokes on me. It's like a red at mit asshole threat. It's like am. I the asshole for thinking that these guys playing themselves doing things they did in the places that they did the mark convincing. That can't be it. It's got to be me. That movie is so interesting. It's like something that they didn't afford audie murphy movie. you know. it's like a war hero. Plays himself i mean. It's not bradley. Cooper is chris kyle. It's these guys as those guys. Then there's that scene at the end where they're getting their medals and they're in it but they you know like the leader of france is an actor because they couldn't get him back but everything else is the real busy busy guy young but they but they got everyone except the one the medals on their chest. And the way that the docu fictional style completely disappears in the train and it becomes a really proficient action movie. You know that is the weirdest damn movie. And i saw with a friend who does not like clint eastwood and she was mad at me for taking her to which also someone is. Everyone was this podcast but afterwards we were having coffee. She's just like ever see a weirder movies in that. Have you ever seen a weirder movies in that. And i'm like. I can't remember the last time and so in some ways i wanna give due to this late. Politically contentious and also by a younger generation of mostly male critics like obsessively deeply beloved cleanse. The clint stands the god. Clint side of this social media sphere we inhabit. And i find the fact that fifteen seventeen to para seems to to to bring those guys out there something in it the strangeness and the weirdness of it is is is is powerful and i have re watched and i have not done that for any of the other three or four eastwood movies around it so you know like is it actually like better than i don't know the good the bad and the ugly no of course not but it's on it's on my list this this is quite a flex..

"Not however much wants to withhold or say at doesn't matter i mean it's a function of it. I'm not using this word negatively. I'm just using objective function of his narcissism ego. This ego he exists to be out there and ego narcissism can sometimes be indivisible from humility. Like i'm watching him in this film and he has the romance with a woman who by movie standards and even by the standards of the characters life is older. I mean she's a grandmother. She nine ninety one years old now and she is one of two very attractive calmly. You know late middle age mexican women in this movie. Who's throw themselves at clint the same way. That has those threesomes in the mule over the girls at the drug dealer mansion. Like party with this guy you know. He plays a ladies man in that film. Hey and clint eastwood is a ladies man. You want the handsome people in the history of american movies and his charisma. His sexual charisma has power is very very real. In other words you try being. Clint eastwood not have an ego. You try being would not interject yourself into the texture and fabric of american life. But that's why people can't leave that stuff alone. He's not a private political prisoners. Public political person and those politics drives some people including me sometimes nuts even though it probably shouldn't they probably shouldn't i think i think it's very difficult to navigate specifically the political aspect because it feels like He is getting in the fight and getting in the conversation in a similar kind of mild provocation. That a lot of his films are and it's a little bit. I'm ultimately disinterested in what his specific political party affiliation is or how he governed carmel in california. I don't really want to you. Know analyze that specifically but because he's a filmmaker that has driven a significant amount of political introspection. I think in american movies. I think it's worth at least acknowledging that he can't stay of the fray just like he can't not make films he he's consistently participating in the culture of our lives in a way that very few people have been able to do across six decades and his his relationship to two women and female stars is also very fraud. I certainly notice the same thing. You did adam. Chris and i were laughing a bit about that yesterday. That these you know very beautiful women who are decades younger than him for i would say borderline inexplicable reasons or like i need you to have sex right now. Right you stood i need. I need this ranch. Hand's here is a specific scene in cry. Baccio where you're just like. Am i. Am i tripping on lsd. Right like what is happening. And it's also a noted to chris yesterday that is almost the organizing narrative action of consecutive films in the early seventies. You know if if you look at play misty for me. Your high plains drifter i mean. These movies are basically set into motion by the idea that a woman is so desires. Clint so deeply that they will go to grave action that will trigger a series of events. That will give us a movie and so he does. This is important to him to be seen this way but also because he ultimately is seen this way in real life so you have this similar. Mirroring effect that we're talking about here..

John Collins Agrees to Five-Year, $125M Deal, to Stay With Atlanta Hawks
"Another team. That is absolutely killing it. This offseason is the atlanta hawks. John collins is back on a five year. One hundred twenty five million dollar deal. I'm sure some people are willing to pan this. I think it's fine John collins a really good player you saw how valuable was is. The playoffs went on last year or not last year. But in this past postseason. Like i know the numbers dipped but i still think he provides a lot for them flexibility. Wise this floorspace and continues to be for real. He has some some room to groza. Passer i'm not sure how that's going to look. I hope that. I mean. That's obviously i think that's the the hope for john. Collins was next year is that he really takes a leap as a decision maker. Because that is the big struggle for him right now. I do think that he provides a lot defensively as a weakside rim-protector he can get out to the perimeter. A little bit like it's better than asking clint to close out on the corner. If you have john carlos going on the corner but point being like you just have so much versatility throughout that rosser. Losing john collins hurts a lot more than keeping him. And i also don't think that this is a negative contract. It's a lot of money. But john collins very good player. Who's going to get

The Impossible Disappearance of Brian Shaffer
"Brian disappeared on purpose. Theory hinges on the fact that his friend. Clint is seen on camera heading back toward the ugly tuna selena where he claims. He looked for brian in the bathroom. Before rejoining meredith a few minutes later out in front of the bar but unless clinton managed to help pull off an incredibly risky and elaborate disappearance in the span of five minutes. Scenario is unlikely and if. Clint wasn't helping. Brian run away from his life. Why was the only person involved in this whole thing who refused to cooperate with police. Some people close to. Brian have questions about clint brian's brother and his father in law to be have publicly stated that they believe clinton knows more than he's saying even the detective currently working on the case told a reporter and twenty twenty that he believes someone interviewed in the past has withheld information. The detective wouldn't give the name of the person he was talking about. But who could have been other than clint right. And that makes sense. If anybody knows something about brian schafer's disappearance it's clint. He was with brian all night. And he was the last one to see brian. Person according to police clinton's the only person to refuse a polygraph test and almost immediately following the disappearance. Clint lawyered up so what is cling to hide. Maybe nothing maybe. He's just making the legally sound decision on the other hand. Let's say clinton is hiding something. There's two roads that could lead us down. The i is it. Clint is such a loyal friend. That after helping. Brian run away. He put his own security at risk by refusing to tell the police when questioned. The other road is more sinister in this scenario. Clint killed brian or at the very least knows who did

I want to tell you how difficult it is to tell someone. They're both beautiful and endangered. So worthy of life, yes, so despised for living. I, do not intend to scare you. My father. Your grandfather. taught me. How follow a certain set of rules before I? Even knew their purpose. He told me that these rules would not apply to everyone. That they would not even apply to all my own friends. But they were ruled to abide by nonetheless. Too. Many black boys are killed for doing what others give a second thought. Playing music too loud. Wearing a sweatshirt with the hood. Playing with a toy in the park. My father knew these things? He knew that there was no room for error. He knew it was not fair. But he loved me too much not to teach me. Not to protect me. I've told you this story before. But it is worth revisiting. Many Saturday morning. Friends and I would ride bikes through the neighborhood together. The Wind chiseled our faces into work. The sent a breakfast being prepared seek out from the windows. The shotgun homes that mind our street. All that we deemed worthy of our attention with the endless possibilities that lay atop are handlebars. Which is to say? We were children. We were a motley crue. In interracial assemblage of young boys who would have made the Disney channel proud. Between building tree houses with secret passwords. Fighting dragons effortlessly sidestepping the perilous fiery breath. Of, hitting the game, winning shot at stadiums of thousands of people chanting our names. Are Ambitions were as far reaching as the galaxy we had been born into. We were small planets. Simply, attempting to find our orbit. On one afternoon. We went to the field where we often played football. Tackle of course. As, we were set on replicating the Braun Bravado that we watched each Sunday on our television. This time. However, the field was closed. Offense bolted by locked. That could not be snapped. One friend, WHO's long blond hair, dangle gently over his ears. Toss the football to me. And immediately began to climb the fence. I watched him. The ease with which he lifted one foot over the other. The indifference of his disposition to the fact that this was an area, we were quite clearly not supposed to enter. I remember hearing the soft distant echo of a police siren. Perhaps a few blocks away. Perhaps headed in a different direction. I couldn't be sure. But I knew better than to ignore it. He reached the other side and look back. Beckoning the rest of us to join him. I held the football in my hand. Looking at him through the chain link fence between us. It was at this moment I realized. How different he and I were. Before I had the words to explain them to either him or myself. How he could break a rule without a second thought. Whereas for me any mistake. Might have the most dire consequences. I hope to teach you so much of what my father taught me. But I pray that you live in a radically different world than the one he and I have inherited. Do not envious task. When? That might become my own. I. Tell You these things because I know how strong and resilient you'll be. How you will take the fear and make a fourth of the skin. And turn it into a bastion of love against unwarranted in humanity. I want you to realize that sometimes. It will not be the things the world tells you. But the things that does not tell you. It will be the emissions. Rather than the director fronts. That often do the most damage. Your textbooks will likely not tell you how Thomas. Jefferson thought blacks were quote inferior to the whites in endowments of both body and mind. Our Franklin Delano Roosevelt's new deal left to hold just wide enough for black families to fall through by lifting the rest of the country into the middle class. It will not tell you how the federal actively prevented black families from purchasing homes in cities across the country. It will not tell you how police departments across this nation are incentivized to see you as problem something to be taken care of. They will not tell you these things. And because of that, they will expect you to believe that. The contemporary reality of our community is of our own doing. That we simply did not work hard enough that things would be different if we simply changed our attitudes or the way we speak. The way we dress. With that said do not for a moment. Thank.

If I didn't even notice, couldn't use my locker for weeks because the boat on the lock reminded me of the One I. Put on my lips when the homeless man on the corner looked at me with. With is up really searching for an affirmation that he was worth seeing I was more concerned with touching the screen and my apple than actually feeding him one when the woman at the fundraising gala said I'm so proud of you. It must be so hard teaching. Those poor unintelligent kids are bit my lip. Because apparently, we needed her money with my students needed their dignity. We spend so much time. Listening to the things people are saying. That we rarely pay attention to the things they don't. Silence is the residue fear. Is Feeling your flaws, gut rich guillotine your tongue, it is the air retreating from your chest because it doesn't feel safe in your lungs, silence is Rwandan. Genocide silence is Katrina. It is what you hear when there aren't enough. bodybags left the southbound after the news is already tied charring, it has changed. It is privileged. It is pain. There was no time to pick your battles. When your battles have already picked you, I will not let silence wrap itself around my indecision so this year. Instead of giving something up. I will live every day as if the microphone tucked under my. Tongue. Stage on the underside of my inhibition. Because, who has that was so box? No. You've ever needed. Voice. You mention how much is being left unsaid and a lot of your research and writing is about how the US has failed to address. And talk about and reckon with its past whether it's Slayer, D-? Jim Crow systemic discrimination as you just described. There has been no national conversation here like in Germany about Nazism in World War Two. Are you still live there or how? South Africa addresses history of apartheid with its Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Why why has there been no conversations? Yeah it's it's something that is. That feels specifically unique to this country in this way, and so the book actually have coming out next year entitled how the Word is past is thinking about this question is thinking about. How different places across the country, different historical sites museums, monuments, memorials different cities how they reckon with Warfield to reckon with their relationship to the history of slavery, so for example you brought up Germany and if we were to go to Germany. And there was a prison. On top of a former concentration camp. In which the majority of the people in prison, there were disproportionately Jewish. It would very clearly be in a front to our moral sensibilities. It be unacceptable. People would be protesting outside of that place every day. And yet in the United States the largest maximum security prison in the country, Angola prison in southern Louisiana. is on top of former plantation. In which eighty some odd percent of the people, there are black, our black men, and and what is say about the way part of what I'm interested in exploring is the ways white supremacy both violence. Against Black people, but also numbs this country to two sorts of violence that should otherwise be outrageously. There should be no reason that a prison is on top of foreign plantation, especially a prison in which the vast majority of the people there. Are Black and so part of what I'm doing in the book is exploring like well. What is it that allows for this to happen? What is it that allows for the so many confederate statues to exist across this country? What is it that allows for? Plantations to be sites of weddings for them to for there to be sites of parties and celebrations when they are the site of so much historical trauma in pain, so many others in how can what does it mean for a site to be a place of celebration for someone and to be a site of violence for another, and how can those two people experienced the same place in such such different ways in part of why I'm asking when I go to all of these places whether it be Angola whether it be windy plantation. Plantation in Louisiana are Monticello Virginia or the Blandford cemetery where the one of the largest confederate cemeteries in the country is asking to what extent of our people who are responsible for these places to what extent are they reckoning with? What has happening on this land, and to what extent they not I think that the question of how places reckon with slavery is is reflective, is in many ways, a microcosm of how willing America is to reckon with myriad of of manifestations of systemic racism and and I think that.

"Ted, conferences to bring about the future. We want to see around the world to understand who we are from those talks. We bring you speakers and ideas that will surprise you. You just don't know what you're GONNA. Find Challenge you. Are Self like why's it no worthy and even change you. I literally feel like I'm indifferent I. Do. You feel that way ideas worth spreading. From Ted NPR. I'm new summary. In Minneapolis Louisville Atlanta Los Angeles in hundreds of cities across the country. People are taking to the streets and protesting, expressing their pain, anger and frustration. I want my son and daughter to live in peace. In America, they are Americans. We demand change in the system. It's not the real issue is institutional racism. Injustice that's been going on in America against black people, a minority people forever. Ever, stop fighting. We can't stop fighting. A fire! We need protection piece. You won't stand for this then. Don't Stanford the role of organizers like myself is to continue to beat the drums when we think no one's listening, because there's always planting seeds for hope for another world, and for people to become a part of it. Before the chanting and marching and demands for change before police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse even the most peaceful crowds Ahmad armory was killed by two white men while jogging in Brunswick Georgia Brianna Taylor was killed by police in her own home in Louisville Kentucky and in Minneapolis Minnesota on May Twenty Fifth George Floyd was killed by an officer who put a need to his neck for eight minutes and forty six seconds. I. Don't remember exactly where I was But I do remember it. It was the first video. In the years that I I decided I couldn't watch. This is Clint Smith. He writes about race and injustice in the US. My name is Clint Smith, and I'm a writer, poet and teacher Clinton on the show before, and we are so grateful that he has come back to spend this entire hour with us, so we can listen to how he's processing this moment I think I've I've watched like so many people? The past several years I've watched endless loops of videos of black people being assaulted, being beaten being killed at the hands of police at the hands of Delancey and I had not ever I I know many people had come to moments long before this, in which they felt like they didn't want to consume black death in that way, and and that is one hundred percent an acceptable decision, because as I talk often about there's attention where the very thing that creates a certain level of awareness of phenomena for people who are not proximate to the black community, already is the very thing that can sort of retraumatize black people as we're forced to inundate this content that. That seems to feel unique to to our community You know if we think about the how often we see videos of white people being killed or being at the hands of police it's it's far less than I think. We have to interrogate why the country accepts that we can watch videos of black people, being killed or beaten hands of police in ways that are not reflected when we think about other demographics so. So, so I do remember that. This was the first one that I felt like I couldn't watch. And I think that that's because the confluence of factors I. Think it's you know. I've been quarantined demain in my home with my family and I think the fatigue of this moment made it incredibly difficult to add anything else to the plate, and and I think I just I didn't need to see something Just didn't need to see another one of US dying..

"I know this is A. Doesn't exactly have anything to do pretty centers, but we just kind of jumped to this, but. If all the people. Just were a little bit less rich everybody. Everybody could be a lot better. Now? I mean if you about wealth distribution. That doesn't work either. I know that I've heard somewhere that wealth distribution is like what caused the Great Depression reception likely that did it was all foregin FDR's wealthier programs shit of trying to get people free money. There's gotta be a better way I think like. 'cause this way is not that good haven't rich people is not bad because having rich people creates jobs. But there's people who are so rich. There's there's some greedy people in the world. Okay, they they just kind of want money enough announced. Blake. Businessman is going to spend his money. Because having money in sin is nothing. He's GonNa move it. You're going to build stuff you're gonNA have jobs because of a product or service that. They came up with. Every rich person is pretty damn smart. You gotta be smart to be rich. It's not necessarily. Some people get lucky like Kylie Jenner while. She didn't necessarily get lucky me lucky in the way that. She was born into a family that was extremely wealthy. But. I mean she also. She has some degree of talent. Takes talent to run your own business shit. She has her own makeup business whatever? But. I think it's a whole lot easier when you're you're.

"Title. You said the other day. I don't know if it was the other day, but you wanna be a comedian. You said one day try stand up comedy. So watch tells a joke there Clint. Look, look what we're not look my. I'm not as funny right on the spot. I'm more funny because I'll say something that everyone else thinks, but they just don't say it. So I I mean, look I talked today. We're in a fantasy football league. You know, maybe last place has to do stand up comedy at a show in New York. And I'm thinking about taking the league next year just the forgive myself that chance, but you know, it's weeded that so people actually did reach out and say that they would give me a chance. So I I need to figure out if the the comedians that talk if most of their stores true or not other. Okay. So if that's the case that I can I can do it. I can be by the end of the year if I'm playing good I'll go up there. And do it one day we work with comedian? None of his shit is true. Look the better on planes better chance people are maybe laughing jokes. So we'll we'll base off home for forming. Yeah. There you go. That's more. And you said like last place Fassi, go does comedy. I have my best friends. Do that punishment and the kid kind of inducting it and every time with them. We kind of like why don't we just go down to accompany? So right now, you can just do stand up, and he just towers and fear the guys you may never do it. He might just have to go into next year and double or nothing or something on it. It's it's a bad situation for them. I have a friend that had that had a league that last person had to spend twelve hours in a waffle house in every waffle. You eight was thirty minutes off the clock. So like, I mean, look if you need ideas, I've got great ideas for last. I mean, we were going to Colorado, we're gonna make one of our friends have to ski dad jeans. You know, like just in case you fell in in the look of of him. So I mean, I got some good ideas. If you want to change that up. I heard one where if you lose you donate sperm show, if you lose you become a father, you just become a father. Beijing. That's what one of our coworkers. Frankie Bradley was telling us the other day. He's telling me the other day that in his league the punishment. This year was you had to do your own version of ESPN the body issue, and like send a copy all your friends, and like he'd been document for like a month. And then all of a sudden he just texted the group chat or they were like are you going to do it through? I was like I quit the fucking league. And just left the chat. It's like is doing it. That's the best. That's the best one. I've heard. That's what we're doing next year. That's all we're doing the body as you, and I'm gonna leave. I respect it. You also said it was I didn't really like I didn't blog. I definitely could have logged it. But I don't know. Why didn't? But you had the whole thing with the you wanted the guy at clint's username on Twitter. And it was so interesting to follow and you were like me type square, and you're offering all this money and just tell us about the whole situation is that was fascinating. Look, I think that if the Twitter handle Clint was minding just I thought it would be funny. Just clint. Yeah. You know, like, so I asked the guy if I can have it, and he he didn't give it to me. And whenever I tried to make it funny. You know, and all of a sudden my followers turned into like Colt like members light saying nasty stuff to this guy. Like like being mean about this handle? So then it turned into. There was no way. I was going to get this handle. Because how everyone else went about it so offered money he blocked me. He blocked two hundred people. He then went on to say that that it was. Like a picture that he posted of him holding a glass of wine in the caption was like that feeling when you've got some loser Yankee walking around time square trying to pay fifty bucks..
