"Never beat us say morning. Everybody's dj envy ngelo. Shall i mean the guy. We oughta breakfast club. We got a special guest in the building. Malcolm glad ladies and gentlemen welcome back thank you. How are you sir. i'm doing very. How'd you made depending man. I was fine. I was upstate. Do i myself pretty mild up. There wasn't a lot of cases so a lot of work done dila running. You know they jumped into podcasts. World ben doing that and doing that in like in. We had a big season as this You have you guys been following our remake of little mermaid. No i didn't listen to that. One got i was caught up in the The historically black colleges plan to the little mermaid anathemas in three parks. I'm like dan. You went deep on a low mermaid when you more then the actual like length of the movie. Don't movies ninety minutes. We like two hours but that was oh so did you. Oh you do you. Listen to my my my i did. The hypocrisy of the college ranking systems. That was that was a fascinating. Listen and it was just another example of the caste system in america me. I always wonder how they did. Those rankings to because i went to wesleyan university that's a small liberal arts cotton and i actually taught a class at dillard university one time too. So it's interesting. You talk about like amount of money that when these universities have in the bank is a large part of the reason why they might get lie they do get a high ranking. It's i mean it's absolutely the case it's like this is a system the us news college rankings system devised to let the rich get richer. It is the biggest most important part of their ranking. System is what's called a reputation score And the reputation score is simply a score. That's a great. It's given by other college presidents until like first of all. You know how many i i was. I was interested in the story of dillard sydell. Hp see you in new orleans. i was. I didn't know it was considered an ivy league. school now learned. That was see. You have a really good school. Every college president in the country gets to grade dillard on a scale of one to five according to its academic. excellence how many college presidents have been dillard. No the slightest thing about dillard had met. Somebody wants to dillard. I mean it's this crazy system where we let people just so basically what they do in they give these. Is they just award. The schools that have the biggest name recognition the most money in the bank. And you know the the fancy dorms and biggest endowments and the the the most famous alumni. That's not enrich students to right. Yeah another big thing is to graduation rate and they failed to take into account that. If you're a school like dillard and you have average family income someone dealers. Thirty thousand dollars a year. They're they're drawing from disadvantaged communities. It's really hard. You can't have ninety five percent graduation rate when you're coming from a family where if your mom loses her job you gotta go home and help out or when your dad get sick you can't. They can no longer afford tuition. You know the we're punishing schools for trying to serve communities That aren't wealthy. Which is crazy right. Why are they doing that. This just drives me absolutely crazy. The amount of weight we give to these random ranking systems that are completely inconsistent with our values with what we care about is people like even mean though like what you know like if you're like okay. My school is ranked this on the lists. Like what does that really mean in the real world. It makes it easier for the school to raise money. It's all about money. It's only about money these all these things. If i can go on the president of a school it's ranked fourth on the us news rankings. I can go to the big donor and say wow look at me. You know you can give money to one of the top schools in the country which brings up this interesting point which is drives me crazy. If you're really rich dude why would you give your money to a school. That only has money. It's the craziest thing you should. You should look at the school. Like i once did a big pus. episode on this billionaire financier in new york who gave five hundred million dollars to harvard which has four billion dollars in the bank. Why would you give half a billion dollars to school audience. forty billion. who does it's like. It's like walking into the gucci boutique. And just saying guys. Here's i got a couple thousand dollars. I think he might need it to tidy through difficult times. Nobody does that. I think there's a lot of rich people in this country. I think are are crazy now. How did how did you. As news and world report ended up owning the college ranking space. By chance. I mean they started doing as a promotional gimmick in the eighties and it caught on things about rankings whenever you do a ranking of anything people fall in love with it right everyone salute list we all if someone list of the top morning radio shows and you guys were ranked number one. You would absolutely say hey. We can't help ourselves. Even though even if i told you that the the the logic behind putting breakfast club number one was like full holes. You would say but still you wait a minute. There's no holes here has been ranking us number one for about five years which one is money because you know if you look at where you live at right. Yeah it's based off of what schools are ranked that so if you're in a district we a school. His rank top five. Let's see in the state you know that your taxes and it'll be high you know that the houses in that area going to cost more money so it's based it's a number game that plays with money. it's not. i mean these things. This the the whole question of higher education education in general in this country has somehow been perverted into something. that is all about How much money you can. you could assemble. We think what a good school is a school. That has the most money in the bank and spends the most money on on educating students. And that's not. It's not about how much money you spent. It's about the culture you create. That's what makes a great school. You think they would take the rankings away since it hurts. Abc news. i should. I mean the end of one of my of The my podcast on this. I said you know. I think it's time for students. At some of the schools that are being privileged by these rankings. The ones at the top. That are i think unfairly at the top. Been say no more kissing to stand up and say we are being unfairly privileged by a ranking system. It's just set up to make schools like us succeed and schools at. Don't educate wealthy kids fail and it is wrong for us to be participants in such a system. That'll never have like. Why would you give up their america. Because this is not something that i knew. How these rankings were. I just would read the list when it comes out and be like okay. I never thought about what goes into making this little chummy with this is interesting. Why wouldn't why is it so hard for people to give up privilege. I don't know because i say it on the radio all the time i would. I want why people to use their privileged to combat prejudice. You know if you're you know you have privilege does not like something you can just put it on the table and say here. I don't want it anymore. But at least you use it to combat the prejudice that existed outside and agree that. It's never gonna happen that these kids at these elite schools are going to say no no more. Let's dropping out. But i i'm puzzled by why it's so difficult for people.

Oh, you coming from university that's great or whatever, but never was invited to a thing. Now it was very distracted I go to worship and then leave.

"And find people would talk about green book locations, restaurants, beauty parlors, nightclubs. All those types of things, But when we met local people, and we started to talk to them about the green book, it opened up a world of memories. So most of them would tell us a personal story from the time that the Green Book was published, or the time that they used the Green Book. For example, when we got to Birmingham, Alabama has the Kyle Walker Hezekiah Jackson told us the story ofthe Hiss family going to Detroit and his aunt Beatty was ill and they had to go and pick up her paycheck. Actually, she had died. And as it as they drove into the white suburb of Detroit, the police suddenly appeared and they talked to his father in such a demeaning way, calling his father boy that it was traumatic for his brother. And he tells the story about he asked his mother. What is there something that we don't know? We're not allowed to go into this into this pretty neighbourhood. Other people. Doctor, Eva Bay, Um at Dillard University, tells the story that her sister would not drive through Mississippi under any circumstances. A sister who lived farther up north But just go all out of her way because of the number of lynchings in those states. The number of road attacked in those states and she did not want to be subject to it. Well, let's hear from one of the people that you spoke to. Alvin here is Mervyn from Louisville, Kentucky. He's talking about the fear of traveling while black in the gym grow south. Sometimes. The idea that it could happen and the knowledge that it has happened to others made you feel awful. You're so tired when you got to the end of your trip if you're driving From watching to see if the car that had pulled behind you was a share scar. You're driving on the highway, not bother the soul and somebody passes by and ways that fist relate. You know, that's that's not good at all. So when you got a way you were going, you were tired and you needed risk. Well, what emotional toll Alvin did these voyages take on African Americans. A lot of people were left feeling always anxious. Some people really profoundly distrusted white people. And they distrust that even maps. We interviewed one family on and she said that her grandfather didn't even trust the map that he trusts the word of mouth network that would get him from Nashville to Louisville or from Nashville to Mississippi. Because at least he knew he was talking to other black people who knew the truth. He just didn't trust it. Because he knew that along the way there was sundown towns and one of the biggest revelations that came For me out of the Sasha is that there were Mohr sundown towns in the north than there were and explain what a son downtown is for those who might not be familiar. A son downtown is of suburb or a specific town in which black people were Told they should not be in that town after sundown. And if you were, you could be harassed. You could be jailed, or even worse. You could get badly beaten up. But if you When we started this journey people would account would tell us about stories, especially around Detroit, the number of sub suburbs around Detroit that were actual sundown suburbs that you could not be in And from these conversations that you had, you know, you've already alluded to some of this already. But you know what did the green book really mean to these folks? It Wass a lifesaver. It meant that when they were on the road or when they got to a certain location, they knew that they would find welcoming services. They knew that they would find a safe place to rest. They knew that they could take Just exhale and feel relax as Mervyn talked about because you need it that after those long drives, I was reading a book recently and somebody talked about the number of people who had to drive long distances and then would have accidents due to exhaustion. This helped stop that from happening or mitigated of it. Yeah. The experience of of traveling for African Americans wasn't all bad. Here's Mervyn again. On the other hand, though, you meant people who are willing To give you everything they had to keep you safe. To feed you. Put you in the guest bedroom. And you weren't a relative. No, it was Just the way things were done because they knew That if we didn't Make the changes. We would never Never It's alive. You talked about the trust or distrust for maps back, then talk a little bit more about the sense of community that was created around the green book. The green but connected all sorts of people who travelled on the road who wanted to see relatives. So with the green Book if you were a member of for example of the Home Economics Teachers Association or the elementary School Teachers Association are dentists and you have to go to conferences and meetings. You would meet other people who had used the green book or the word of mouth network and they would help you out. Some of the most strong networks we found were among fraternities, Alphas. Among the Masons among church people who went to various conventions in various areas and that word of mouth network combined with the information, the Green Book. Made people feel as if they could go on the road. Now, remember that this place the green Book talked about the specific place So you were still In danger as you were making the trip. But the green Book also sometimes gave you suggestions about how you can mitigate the danger while on the road, and a lot of it was being aware keeping your eyes open for subtle changes. And from the sounds of it, it was helpful for black owned businesses and the black economy. Absolutely we one of my favorite sequences is visiting Jackson, Mississippi, and everyone talks about Ferris Street. There's this guy who was a shoe size shot in person who owns a shoe repair shop there, and he talked about what Ferry Street was like in the hate on Fridays and Saturdays. You could not walk down the street. There was so many people the businesses were full, and people just had a good time. Has a Kaya Jackson talks about when they drove from Burma from Birmingham to New York. How there's his family thought it was a guy to patronize black businesses along the way. They did not know until much later that it was because of fear and segregation. And in all of these towns where this Louisville, Kentucky Walnut Street Whether it's Paradise Valley in Detroit or Jefferson Street in national. This was the center of Black Life. This was the center of strong black economy. In the show we do about Detroit, German Jordan tells about how the African American dollars turned over 10 times within the black communities. We heard from Jade on Twitter. She writes this traveling while black conversation has me kind of thinking that we could use an app like that for the modern day. What do you think about that? Alvin? We talked about that, with a lady named Jan Miles who wrote the Negro Motorist Green Book. I think it's called the Negro Motorist Screen book, and it is a detail of all of the atrocities that have happened to black people on the road. And she talked about the fact that their websites now that people can exchange this information and at the end of this road trip. You gradually began to see how even today That this type of information is highly useful. I still remember a trip that I took about in 16 4015. And I was staying at a hotel in Jackson, Mississippi, and I was traveling with a white producer and we went down and asked for record restaurant recommendation, and the person at the desk was white recommended this restaurant in a part of town. We then set the white producer down record for recommendation. He got a totally different recommendations. Wow. And this. I have never forgotten that because I kept thinking, why does she make this assumption that we would not want to go to the restaurant that she recommended to him? And I should note so the Full name of the book that we're talking about. From the back in the thirties on dawn was called the Negro Motorist, Green Book and the Modern Day one that she referenced oven is the post Racial Negro Motorist Green Book. Yes, that's what's called him to talk with Jan. Miles was so Revealing. I asked her specifically. What is it like emotionally? For you, too..

"Memorial Day. Bill is off today. He'll be back tomorrow. Hey, let's talk about William Rick singer, the man at the center of this college admissions scandal. There's some new information coming out that doesn't that doesn't have anything to do with the current set of prosecutions of him and parents and coaches, but does show the possibility. Maybe he was full of it before he was full of it. Here's what happened. In two thousand sixteen there was a lawsuit going on. It was a graduate of the Sidwell friends school, which you may remember from when Barack Obama was president and his kids went there, and it's a very very, you know, exclusive high falutin big time private school in the DC area, and there was a student who graduated who happened to be African American and couldn't get into a bunch of schools. And determined in, in their opinion of the student and the family that teachers and administrators had discriminated against him and retaliated against him. And that's why he couldn't get in to Harvard or Yale or Columbia. And and you know what I think about it, it was a girl. It was not a guy in any event. So they file a lawsuit against the school and Sidwell hires Rick singer for three hundred dollars an hour to come and basically testify on behalf of the school to look at her grades her extracurricular activities her. She was a track and field athlete to look at it. And to say, oh, she didn't get into these schools because she just wasn't good enough according to their standards. That's all. So obviously that means they thought he was an expert, so he gets to the deposition, and the attorney for the families questioning him, and it goes on for like six hours. And here's what's interesting. They ask Rick singer, you know. Hey, have you ever been part of a college admissions committee designated by school to, to, to help make admission decisions? And he said, yeah. And he started rattling off names of all these schools, like, and they're all pretty impressive, Chapman university UC Davis UCLA university of Miami. Dillard university down in Louisiana. And he said, well, for example, when I was at UCLA. My job was to give the applicant a score, I would look at their application and their transcripts in their personal essays kind of what I did at UC Davis. And that I went there because they asked to be to. Who asked you? I, I don't remember. Oh, well who recruited you to come help out at UC Davis? You know, I don't really remember. So here's the deal. According to UCLA and you see Davis. And Chapman and the university of Miami, according to them, Rick singer never did nothing was never there. It's never on admissions. Committee didn't do any of it. Now it looks like the Dillard university thing is legit. They did confirm that they brought him in and this was after what happened is. After Hurricane Katrina as you might imagine. You had a lot of people leaving the area, including a lot of good students and Dillard, that's in New Orleans was like we need some help in attracting the good student, try to get them to come back to the area. And apparently they did. Bring him in. Now. What's interesting is that. He said that he did the stuff for UCLA and UC Davis and Chapman. And you of Miami, the things that the school says he never did anything Russ. He said he did that voluntarily. In other words, he didn't get paid. He just did it as volunteer now. Dillard, he was paid. So it's interesting that he has the best memory. About a thing that was prop that was real. And he was getting paid. And then it looks like or one could certainly infer here. He made up. A bunch more experience with higher name recognition schools. He must have known there'd be no payroll records of him. He wouldn't have any pay stubs or anything. And so he says, well, I did all of that voluntarily now. It does look like he did not lie about his educational history. They did confirm with the university of Laverne that he got a master's degree in school counseling. He told the lawyer in the deposition that he enrolled in a doctoral program at Capella university, but he didn't get his degree, and that was confirmed, or at least somebody with the name Rick singer was employed in a PHD program and left before, completing the degree. Also, he had to admit that he'd never worked as a college admissions counselor at a high school, and that he was not a member of the national association for college admission counseling, which is the main membership organization for such things. But what he did do and I have a feeling now that this is the pitch that he gave to all of these rich parents, as well, is I have so much experience doing this. But now, I don't think we can be sure how much experience he ever really had, or what if he did have experience, although schools, but we find out that there was an inside person there to giving him access to those different records. And maybe then he could see. Oh, well Sally Smith comes from a super wealthy family, but she's not a really great candidate. However, if I tell Sally Smith's family, this is the way to get your kid in. I get a little cash, it just raises even more suspicions that possibly none of what he ever did was legitimate. Yeah. As opposed to he was a legitimate guy. He really knew his stuff and then whatever he turned to the dark side, maybe his entire career has been based on falsehoods. I don't know but it doesn't look good. In terms of what he was yacking about at this deposition. And this is way before this whole thing was on anybody's radar. All right. When we come back. Oh, yes. Speaking of getting into college the SAT's they're going to start using a new score an additional score. It's called an adversity score. Some people say it's nothing more than racial quotas dressed up nicely. Let's get into what it's about, and see if we agree or not. It's KFI AM six forty. Jennifer Jones, Lee. You have some news. LA county's investigating whether.
