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.

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.

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

"Your kids are really little now. But when do you think you'll share that letter with your son and your daughter and talk about the protests and the police brutality that you've seen the conversation racist unique in the sense that people feel as if they cannot begin having those conversations with their children whether they're white or black glad next or whatever the case may be until they're much but but i think that if we think about it in the way we think about the environment right environmentalism louis scaffold the conversation and you make it age appropriate. So you don't you don't just show up to a six year old and say oh. We'll global warming is an existential threat to the existence of various countries on this planet and bangladesh is going to be under water and the polar bears going to disappear in the polar. Ice caps are gonna melt. What are we going to do. That would be an appropriate for a seven year. old is it's important to recycle. It's important to turn the light off when you leave. Your room is important to turn the water off when you while you're brushing your teeth and you make it in and you build their capacity to understand what protecting the environment means. And i think it's the same thing with conversation around race right. You don't show up to a six year old and say White supremacy has been an ever-present fixture in the united states for the past four hundred years in systemic racism floods every part of american public policy. Like that's that's inappropriate for six year old which you say is you say you know. It's important to to celebrate different people and they're different cultures and where they come from. And you don't have to pretend to be colorblind. You can say i i recognize that we're all different and celebrate that and i embrace that and i want that to be a part of my life and You use language that is appropriate for the child at at their age. So you know. I will i say to my son you know. Today is three year old. What i've written as i have written in in this letter. I wrote five years ago. Probably not but. I think that there will come a point in which we have to have explicit conversations about what he means that he if a teacher says oh well you know your child is aggressive or your child doesn't pay attention or your child is Just you know thinking about language that people begin to us about black boys and girls black children from an early age that is coded with with something that is implicit sometimes something much more sinister To to make my son clear there's nothing wrong with him to make my daughter clear that there's nothing wrong with her Even when there are people who are telling them that and don't even realize that they're they're doing so it's interesting. You say that i i was trying to explain to my daughter with the protests. Were about why people were so upset and her reaction was that makes me so sad. I feel scared and Said that's okay to feel those things And then my almost thirteen year old came to me and was like so what are you doing about the protests. Mostly oh okay like tables turned you know And i i also you know i. I don't know with my kids. How realistic or optimistic to be thinking about the other thing that you say in that letter to your future son. Which is this world is a social construction. It can be reconstructed. This world was built. It can be rebuilt. Are you still hopeful. Absolutely i definitely think that The world as it exists today is not static it is not an inevitability it is the result of decisions that have been made by people in power and we can build a world in which different decisions are made in which different kinds of people are in power in which different Set of opportunities are distributed in a much more equitable way board. I'm clear on that. That is long in difficult work. Like i think. Some people the nature of living in in our social media age in our our moment is that people often want something to change in wanted to change very quickly. And there's it's not to say that some things can't or shouldn't change very quickly like are they are things that should absolutely change following following this protest. You know i think. About the protests a lot of people have talked about the comparisons in contrast between this moment and the protests that erupted after dr king was killed in nineteen sixty eight. and you know out of the protests in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight came the fair housing act which was the last great piece ooh legislation in the civil rights movement in. So it's not to say that. These protests themselves cannot or should not lead to some immediate tangible substantive policy changes differences. But it is to say that the of larger work. The paradigm of change is long and hard and difficult so for example like i work in prisons. I think about prison thing about incarceration all the time i want to live in a world in which mass incarceration does not exist. I also accept that. I might not live to see that world but that doesn't mean i don't continue to fight for it right. I think we all are sort of chipping away at this wall For as long as we can the best we can and we don't really know how thick the wall is the other side of it but what is true. Is that when we move on. Somebody else is gonna come behind us. And they'll be closer to the end of that. Wall are the other side of that wall. Because of the chipping away that we have done. So this an intergenerational job it's an intergenerational work always has been and always will be can feel so incremental sometimes but the way that you've just phrased it is that we end chapter and then there's always another chapter that starts again and it builds upon the story. You wrote a poem. I think which you brought to read for us as well. Do you mind telling us about it and then reading it for us so this is a poem that i wrote a year ago but it is kind of been recirculating as as the protests to vapin corona viruses happened Unfortunately there is always something happening inside fear that it will always be relevant in some way But i'm i'm interested in the phrase. We have made it through worse before or will make it to the other side or will will be okay in the end or will make it through this. And i'm interested in it. Because i'm i'm interested in interrogating who that we is. And who is the we that makes it to the other side. Who is the we that has seen worse before. Who is the we that will be okay in the end because he feels incredibly imprecise like it is meant to be the sort of collective Mobilizing thing that that encourages us inspires us to push through that. I worry that in using language like that we can fail to account for or completely erase the lives and experiences of the people who who will make it to the other side who didn't make it to the other side And so i'm i. I am interrogating own use of the language of of that language for a long time as well as is the case with so many of my poems This one is a means of thinking through ways to myself accountable to be more precise and to be more thoughtful about what type of language we use in this moment and in so many others so this poem is called when people say we have made it through worse before when people say we have made it through worse before.

Am honestly even thinking about being at a bar at two am makes me tired on the security camera footage. Brian can be seen walking toward the entrance of the bar. But the actual entrance of the bar itself is out of frame as the drunken horrid of college. Students poured out of the bar at closing time. Clint and meredith waited outside for bryant. They called him on his cellphone but he didn't pick up in clinton back inside and check the bathroom but he wasn't there. Clinton meredith then made the assumption that brian had already left and hadn't told them folks. Can we please normalize not leaving your friends at bars. Just because you can't get a hold of them like unless they explicitly said you go ahead. I'll stay here and or they're not like incoherently drunk. Don't leave without your friend. Who gave you know warning that they were going somewhere. Well that's not. How clinton and meredith handle the situation. They assumed nothing was wrong and left But the next morning no one had heard from. Brian girlfriend tried calling him. His father tried calling him. He didn't pickup and then on monday morning. Brian was a no show at the airport for his flight. To miami with alexis by this point nobody had heard from him for almost forty eight hours.

Clint Smith reading US his letter for my future Black Sun which he wrote in two thousand fifteen. My hopes dreams fears for my future Black Sun. Published in two thousand fifteen. Son. 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.

"Conversation that my father had with me in the conversation his father had with him in the conversation that I'll have to one day have with my son and my daughter. About what it means to navigate a world that. Is taught to fear you. And how do you tread the line of convincing a young person, or making clear to a black child, the realities of the world, while also not making it seem as if they have somehow done something to deserve it without making seem as if it's their phone. And I think that that is the balanced that that parents black children are constantly trying to figure out because. We live in the world where they are constantly. Black children are constantly inundated with these messages both subtle and explicit about who they are about how dangerous they are about how they're perceived By the wider world and in how do you guard them against that while also making them? Clear about what that represents and what it means for their lives. So it's a it's a delicate balancing act, and and I I'm not.

"Dr Martin Luther King Junior. In one thousand, nine, hundred sixty eight speech where he reflects upon the civil rights movement states. In the end. We will remember not the words of our enemies. But the silence of our friends. It's worked that he's been doing for years as a poet and an educator. Here's Clint on the Ted Stage Teacher I've internalized this message. Every day all around us. We see the consequences of silence manifest themselves in the form of discrimination. Violence? Genocide and war. In the classroom. Challenged my students to explore the silences in their own lives poetry. We work together to fill those face. To recognize. To Neymar. To understand that they don't have to be sources of shame. In an effort to create a culture within my classroom, where students feel safe, sharing the intimacies of their own silences. I have four core principles posted on the board that sits in the front of my class. which every student signs the beginning of the year? We critically. Right consciously. Speak clearly. Tell you. I find myself thinking a lot about that last point. Tell you. And I realize that if I was going to ask, my students speak up. I was going to have to tell my true. And be honest with them about the times failed to do so. So I tell them that growing up. As a kid a Catholic family in New Orleans. During lent. I was always taught that the most meaningful thing one could do was to give something. Sacrifice something you typically indulgent prove to God you understand his sanctity. I've given up Soda McDonald's French fries, French kisses and everything in between. But one year. I gave up speaking. Figure the most valuable thing I could sacrifice was my own voice, but it was like a hen realize. That I had given that up a long time ago. I spent so much a my life. Telling people the things they wanted to hear instead of the things they needed to told myself. I wasn't meant to be anyone's conscience. Because I still had to figure out being my own so sometimes. I just wouldn't say anything. Appeasing ignorance with my silence unaware that validation doesn't need to endorse its existence when Christian was beat up for being gay I, put my hands in my pocket and walk with my head down. 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 didn't bring the gym because it's only a couple of days but then if I'm in a location whether in Europe or Hawaii or wherever it is bring the gym for because you don't think that they have the same equipment there and you do. Do you have something different. No seriously do you have something different than they don't have whoa. Oh gyms have basically the same equipment especially at the kind of gyms that I trained. The only issue is extremely hard for me to get a workout in public. Jim Yeah because it's a lot of people and you know the the etiquette gets thrown out the window and I just I can't get.
