"Some of my favorites have been trading spaces early seasons of the real world. And of course the real housewives. It's been really interesting to see how programming in this space has developed over time. Ansa follow the commentary and what has been most interesting is the way the space has been accommodating or not so much to black women cast members and black audiences to help us explore this world today. I'm joined by dr racquel gates. Dr gates is an associate professor of film at columbia university and the author of double negative the black image and popular culture. She received her phd from northwestern university's department of screen cultures and holes in ma in humanities from the university of chicago as well as a bs in foreign service from georgetown university. Currently she's working on her second book titled hollywood-style in the invention of blackness for which she was awarded an academy film scholar grant by the academy of motion picture arts and sciences in twenty twenty. Her reading appears in both academic and popular publications such as the new york. Times the los angeles review of books and film quarterly. She lives in brooklyn with her partner in two sons. Dr gates and i chatted about the complicated nature of black women's representation on reality tv. How audiences often response a majority black casts the stereotypes that are both upheld and to spill through reality tv and the changes. That often happened between seasons one. And two of a show if there's something that resonates with you all enjoying our conversation please share with us on social media using the hashtag. tb g in session. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much joining us today. Gates thank you so much for having me. Yeah i am so happy to have you here reality. Tv is like one of my favorite things to enjoy the. I love to talk to people who are researching in this area. So can you start by telling us a little bit about what fascinates you about media studies. In how you got into studying reality. Tv sure so what fascinates me about studying media but also film is that i think that element television are these sources of connection between people and i think that sometimes in spite of our backgrounds sort of our shared experiences with different movies or different television shows allow us to tap into something and sort of form a site of human connection. I also think that sometimes we can work out our own feelings and experiences vicariously through watching film and television. And i think that's where reality television is particularly unique because it's so much about sort of daily lived experience and of course that's like played for drama and for comedy and all kinds of things but i think that at its core reality television particular. The draw is the sort of very real connection with the cast members. And i think that's a huge source of pleasure for the audience from me. How do i get into studying reality television. So i'm by training. I am a film and media studies. Scholar i'm also a fan of reality television and you know there's a point where at least from me when i was reading you know like newspaper articles or just sort of listening to the ways that people are talking about reality television. It always seemed to sell the genre kind of short. it seemed to presume. The lack of sophistication on the part of audiences which are primarily women and from meade. A light bulb went off. Because that's typically what happens when you are talking about john. Roses that are primarily enjoyed by audiences who are not like straight white milk. And so for me. I really wanted to sort of turn a second of my research to reality television to really sort of get at the nuances of what. Make it so pleasurable. But also i would argue so powerful and so endure it So it feels like the. John really has kind of expanded right. Like i think right. I'm guessing you probably know this better than i do. Like is the real world kinda like our first real foray into reality. Tv so can you talk just about like how genre has expanded beyond stuff like real world. Sure i mean people always cite the real world right like that nine hundred ninety one nine ninety two moment i think that is like the dawn of the contemporary era of reality television. But if we're thinking about the nuts and bolts of what makes something reality television like the idea that it's unscripted the idea that we're getting a behind the scenes. Look at either a person or a community that we don't normally get then. I'd argue it. You have to actually go back to the nineteen fifties right and something like edward murals person. A person which was a television show where the journalists would he go visit the home of celebrities and get this sort of candidate interview where they would talk about various things in terms of their personal life in their in their professional lives. You have to think about something like candid camera that television show right which is about playing you know. It was on unsuspecting people. You could also think about. All of the game shows that became really popular in the nineteen fifties. There's a television show that i like to teach in my reality. Tv class called queen for a day. Which was the show where women would come on and they would sort of talk about you. Know all of the things that were going wrong in their lives and it's like the audience dot. They're sob stories. Were pathetic enough. They would win. They'd win a prize in clearly. A predecessor to something like extreme home makeover which is a show that we're more familiar with now at also throw out the film sociological experiments. That happens like in the sixties in the seventies stanford prison experiment things like that and one of my favorite examples that i liked to teach. Jfk's filmed televised birthday party at madison square garden. Where marilyn monroe comes out and sings this very sort of sexy version of hafner him as his wife confront rogue watches it like.

"Upcoming episode on Finding Your Roots on PBS. Dr Gates, Good to have you again. Thank you, Scott for having me on your show. We have lunched Season seven of finding your roots. I can't believe it's amazing. It's amazing and this business second episode in Episode two. It's called Against all odds. And it features Andy Cohen and Nina Totenberg, as you know, Andy Cohen's media personality, and Nina is the famous NPR radio journalists and they meet ancestors who struggled mightily as we're going to hear to survive. Let's start with Andy Cohen and he grew up in ST Louis, where his family owned a food distribution company known as Last Co. And both of his parents worked there and as a youth, of course, So did Andy. The company's origins lay with the Andes. Great Grandfather Mandate. Lewis Allen Lewis came to America from Russia in the 18 nineties, when he was about 23 years old. He had nothing. Of course. He started out as a peddler, hauling his wares from farmhouse to farmhouse on foot before he was even able to afford awards in the cart. And he went on. He saved his pennies. And he found that a dry goods store that would eventually grow into Louis Allen sons and company and its acronym is last Go Now. A rival records show that Lewis came to America from a small town outside of the city of B, A. With stock in modern day Poland. It was at that time, part of the Russian empire located what was known that's pale of settlement. The records from the paler scarce we were able to show Andy Incredibly, the synagogue where his family most likely worshiped and to trace his Alan line. Their name was yelling Back in Russia. We traced the Alan line back to his fourth great grandfathers who were likely born in 17 50. A quarter of a century before the American revolution. Wow! Endings 100% Ashkenazi Jewish, but he had a beautiful, brilliant didna cousin who? Scarlett Johansson. Wow! On those. She's Scandinavian. Her mother is Jewish. And that's the connection. And now I'll tell you about Nina Totenberg need his father, Roman Totenberg was a world famous violinist suit. Let a truly epic life Roman was born in 1911 to middle class Jewish family. What is now pull it In part of the Russian Empire. He was a child prodigy and talents helped him survive and feed his family during the Russian revolution and the massive famines that followed that by the early 19 thirties, he had a fabulous career touring Europe in the Americas. And the statue is an artist's enabled him to immigrate to the United States as World War two loomed, But that didn't mean his family back in Europe was safe. After Roman came to America, his mother status, Wahba found yourself trapped in Paris, unable to leave due to American immigration quotas, and Roman Oh, Scott. It's so sad, desperately tried to get his mother out, found all these letters he wrote to all these government officials. And unlike the vast majority of European Jews, Nina's grandmother got out quickly because of that, the day after France surrendered to the Nazis standing Suada cross into port school the day after France surrendered. Wow! It was able to board one of the last ships carrying Jewish refugees to America, but that his mother has been saved. The family's ordeal wasn't over. His older sister need is on you, Nina. Stranded in Warsaw with her husband and child. When the Nazis invaded, Then fall of 1940. The Germans established a ghetto for Warsaw's Jewish population. You Nina's husband died in that ghetto, though you need to manage to obtain false papers and escaped with her young daughter, Miraculously. At least 10 of Romans. Many aunts, uncles and cousins perished in the Warsaw ghetto, and she had a famous didna cousin. And that was Carly. Simon. Really? Yeah. And of course I can't wait to see the show. It's on Wednesday nights on PBS. Check your local listings for the time and Dr Gates will talk to you again next week. Okay, Take.

"She is the power behind genetic genealogy with finding your roots with Dr Henry Louis Gates on PBS. She's the person behind the Edna detectives. C. C. Welcome back. It's great to have you. How are things? It's wonderful to be back. I always loved speaking with you. So thanks for having me. Well, thank you. Philistine on what's new? I know. I know You're coming up on a milestone with your DNA's a detective group. And this is pretty exciting. Yes. This week we will hit 150,000 members. I created the group February 27th 2015. So we're about 5.5 almost six years in and I believe that's the biggest Edna group in the world. I can't think of Can't imagine many people know I wouldn't imagine that. What's going on on finding your roots. You're still doing that as well. I am And you know, a lot of people think I was just been a consultant all these years, but I've actually been a full time. Production team member all of these years since 2013 and it's been really hard to balance that with everything else I'm doing and I'm so fortunate that we finally have somebody else on the show. Kimberly Morgan has come on is one of the associate genealogist working with Nick's Ch'ti. She is really good with DNAs. So this is the first time I've had somebody to help me. With the genetic genealogy research on the show, and it's been just wonderful. How fun is that? And we got a whole new season of that coming up in January. We've got Dr Gates coming on at that time to talk about some of the celebrities coming up, so that's gonna be a lot of fun. And and, of course, the genetic detective's been out there for a while, and I would imagine with covert. That's kind of shut down a lot of things because you did a lot of travel for the show. I did, and I haven't been able to do anything like that. I've definitely been working from home. It's also affected finding your roots. But we have been in production you might notice when you start seeing the newer episodes that the table is longer. They've got Dr Gates 6 FT table Now sort of the guest is further away. They're following all of These very strict guidelines for being able to film the show. No one else is in the room that the cameraman typically and they're watching for a monitors and other rooms. Everyone's mast up, except for Dr Gates and the guests. They're doing testing, so we are able to continue to create content for that series, but it has been challenging. And you know, it's harder for people to travel. Of course, Dr. Gates has been driving long distances to get to those interviews in some cases, so the show is gonna look a little different, but we hope everyone will still be happy to have it. You know, it's certainly better to have it, even if it's not exactly the way it's always been. A lot of cases will only have two guests instead of three. As some people have seen in the recent episodes. They've done some remixes, where they've taken some of his former guest stories and mixed them with newer guests. And so sometimes people think it's a rerun that it's actually not a rerun. It's a remix, and there's going to be some new material in that as well. So this is, of course, just your side work because your main job is putting people behind bars for things from a long time ago. Cold cases cold case murders. And you've actually had a couple of court cases recently is understood that were one and this is kind of unique and important for a couple of reasons. First of all, you get a lot of people who confess up front, so it's never really tested in court. The question of genetic genealogy, helping to identify a potential suspect. But when it gets into court, we haven't seen anybody challenging the technique because it's just treated like a tip. But now you've actually had some people who pled not guilty, went to court and got convicted. Right? So we're about 2.5 years into this now, and when we started, there was a lot that was unknown. Of course, we didn't know how the courts would treat this and how Juries would view it. And it took a lot of time before the case has started going to jury trials, Of course, and so in summer 2019. We have the very first case that went to a jury trial where the suspect has been identified through investigative genetic genealogy. But it's been pretty slow going. And just recently, we've seen a number of cases go to jury trial and get convictions. And so it's starting to set a real precedents, the use and acceptance. Of genetic genealogy and these cases, so that's exciting. Well, it is a little surprising that there haven't been more challenges. You know, There's been a lot of talk about Fourth Amendment issues, but the defense attorneys are not bringing those issues up. By and large. This isn't becoming an issue in these trials. And so every time I'm on hold to be an expert witness. I've been canceled without exception because they've all decided that genetic genealogy isn't really an issue that they can challenge. Now That's not to say, you know that will never change may be a defense attorney. One day will challenge it to a greater degree, but it is setting a precedent across the United States now. Genetic genealogy really is a tool. This isn't evidence to be admitted in court in front of the jury. This is a tip that pointed them toward someone. And then it's the investigation they did from there. That is what is used in court. And it is just a tip. And it's nice to know too that as more and more people get involved in genetic genealogy, we might be able to solve more and more of these things. Yeah, you know, we're up to 133 successful identification and those are just once where they've been fully confirmed in..

And was that we were able to trace shows family back to his fifth grade grandfather, who was born in Germany on his father's line, and when his mother's ally into his fourth great grandfather, Joseph Kelly, who was likely board in the 17 sixties in England, So it is an amazing episode about the miraculously uses of DNA. Yes, Aries off. Issues of paternity and family heritage. Well, let's face it. America has just done a huge massive paternity test, and it's available for pretty much anybody who wants to really find out where they come from. And when you consider there's 18 million DNA test results now on ancestry alone, right And you know there are a lot of support groups and anyone listening to this. Should look at our website and write to us if they're struggling with this information, because you actually as soon as you click on your website sent to you by one of the prominent DNA cos you couldn't tell if your mother father, really your mother, father. And then a lot of adoptees turned to us for help when we refer them to CC more who is the world's leading as far as we're concerned, yes, genetic genealogist, but there are a lot of support groups. Well, Dr Gates, this is Ah, great season Now this runs into January and then you pick up with season seven. And we're gonna touch base with you each week about the upcoming episodes, and they really look forward seeing it. And, of course for anybody wanting to watch. It's finding.

"Program. I'm Gloria Duffy, president and CEO of the Commonwealth Club. I was honored to serve as a deputy assistant secretary of defense in the 19 nineties. Now it's my pleasure to introduce today's distinguished guests. There are many issues today surrounding national defense in our military. Should the military be used to quell domestic unrest, such as the recent protests should the U. S be terminating many of our arms control treaties and even contemplating resuming nuclear testing? Should the names of Confederate military leaders be removed from U. S military bases and their statues be removed from our public places to address these questions and many more.

"You look within Churchill's point about democracy and the difficulty Frankly, some would say the well nigh impossible mission of forcing that on a country that's not ready for it. You have two quotes that kind of highlight this This challenge about America's role in the world one Should America's mission be to make the world safe for democracy? This is a force brought from President Woodrow Wilson's approach. Or, in the words of John Quincy Adams. Should America be the well wisher to the freedom and independence of all of the Vindicator Tze and champion on ly of her own democracy? How do you parse this When you're confronting events in the world that may not be vital interests. But what is America's role as we watch young people in the streets of Hong Kong? Or we watch other places where people somewhere trying to bring about democracy and, of course, autocrats around the world who say not on my watch, not going out. So where does America go forward, And when do we go forward Using the symphony of powers mean? What does it look like in your vision? John Quincy Adams had another quote that came out of the same document, he said. We ought not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy other words. We ought not go looking for trouble. I think a CZ I write in the book. I think Wilson and John Quincy Adams have to co exist. I think that it is from the beginning of our republic. We have seen ourselves as the city on the hill as an example for the rest of the world to follow. And as part of our foreign policy to do all we could to advance the interests of democracy and reform abroad, and human and political rights where I draw the line is in using the military to make that happen. I think that as we've been discussing, you can't force a country into democracy. These institutions have to be developed. One of the lines that we all use was having won. Election is not synonymous with bringing democracy to a country. A democracy is based on the rule of law is based on institutions and the role we can play is helping countries develop those institutions. This is where the civilian part these instruments of power that I talk about is so important because it are people helping them develop their own institutions and encouraging the development of those institutions, you know. Use a idea in and a number of private foundations in the United States funded a huge number non governmental organizations in Russia, for example, in the 19 nineties to try and encourage the development of democratic institutions and the rule of law, and so on. And it is evidence that those were working that in there in the two thousand's Vladimir Putin essentially eliminated the ability of all of those NGO's toe work in Russia. Some points. There were thousands and thousands of these, and now they're They're just a handful. Same thing in China, so I think we can use a variety of tools that including I would say. Our intelligence capabilities and and covert action. CIA's covert action played a big role in the success of solidarity in Poland and taking on the communist regime there that were kind of three institutions that that supported solidarity, all working independently. The Catholic Church and Pope John Paul, the second CIA and the American labor unions and through the A F L C I o So we have these instruments that we can use to encourage those trying to bring democracy to their own country and two straight helped them strengthen those institutions. But it's us helping them, not us trying to force it on them. Dr Gates when you look at China's advantage, and you noted some with their state run economy and what they could do with money going into certain places, perhaps just loading up dead on countries that will never be able to repay it and developing some degree of control over some sovereign otherwise sovereign decisions. Do you think the U. S endurance to stricter moral standards? Actually weaken just in this competition that is going on between the China model. Barely an authoritarian model. It's hard to believe they would practise kinder, gentler model externally from their country. Then they practiced on their own people are we actually weakened by taking a more moral stance? As we look at our role in the world against Chinese model, which is basically by your allies shoulder your way in Dismiss other nation's sovereignty, whether being diplomatic or economic or even moral sovereignty. Where do we stand in this competition? Well, I think we all know that America a cz much as we love it, and and as much as we admire it, and as much as we believe it is unique in the history of the world. And and a unique force for good is still flawed, and we're seeing the results of that in the streets of most of our cities in the last few weeks, But we do stand for some things. You know, It's not by accident that on Tiananmen Square in the spring of 1989. That the Chinese students erected a statue that they called the goddess of liberty that looked an awful lot like the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. It's not an accident that the Hong Kong protesters are waving American flags. It's not an accident that during the pushback on the Iranian regime just a few months ago After they shot down the airliner that they had painted on American flag. The students have painted an American flag on the steps of one of their schools and people were walking around that flag, so is not to step on it. So I think the rest of the world knows that were flawed. But they also know we're about the only country in the world that consistently tries to get better. We consistantly. We know what we believe in and we work every day and trying to make our actions coincide with our beliefs than with what we profess to. I admire the most in Democratic countries, so I think we have to address our problems here at home. We do need to be a model and frankly, we're not a very good model right out of our politics or paralyzed. We can't tackle any of the big problems that our country faces, whether it's immigration or education or infrastructure or other things. We still have to battle racial injustice. But we're trying to fix these things. And I think other countries recognized that and as long as we continue to profess started ideals. As long as we try to help them create democracies. I think our ideology if you will is still to be admired around the world. Now, the truth is, I think that it is Tarnished now. As a result of several things over the last dozen years or so. The 8 4009 economic crisis in this country undermine sentiment around the world that the American economic model was one they wanted to emulate. I think that economic inequality in this country is a problem that other countries see makes them wonder whether the American economic model is one they want to follow. Our paralysis are polar polarization has been with us since the very beginning of the republic. The names that Jefferson and Adams called each other would fit right into today's political campaigns. But what's new since the end of the Cold War? Really? Is a paralysis and our inability to get really big things done in the country because the two political parties are just frozen at the federal level in their war on each other for all practical purposes. Everybody seeming to forget that the only thing that makes the American system work is compromised. I think right now she jen paying in China is pointing to all these problems that we have here at home, economic and political in particular. And and he is arguing to the rest of the world. Look at the Chinese model. We brought hundreds of millions of people out of poverty were ableto have this incredible 21st century infrastructure. We're willing to help you build a modern infrastructure in your country. Karma, and we get things done. So our model is the one that you should look to. And frankly, there are a lot of countries that look at the Chinese and they say, Well, maybe they maybe they're they're approached. The Chinese approaches is better than the American approach. So if we want to have our our ideology, our belief in liberal democracy and capitalism Be a model for the rest of the world. We got a lot of repair work to do here at home. But I still believe that most of the people in the world believe that America stands for freedom and and for human and political rights, and that's our ace in the hole. If you will. We just have to work at making it even more credible. The problem is right now we have a competition in the world that's going to go on for quite a while. This is old is as a CZ democracy itself, and that is the conflict. Competition between democracy and authoritarianism. My view is communism's dead as a door nail. The only malice left in the world would probably handful somewhere in China, maybe a few in American universities of France or someplace, but but I think communism is dead. Authoritarianism, though, has incredibly deep. Historical roots, and that's the real danger. We defeated authoritarianism twice in the in the 20th century. If we don't address our problems and figure out how to move forward to the country, our ability to defeat authoritarianism in the 21st century, I think will be at risk. But I I That's a very long answer to your question. But I believe that our ideology of freedom and are pro pounding that ideology. Is an asset for us in the world, not a liability, walked and learned most about our country and what freedom means to others. And what we represent. The others threw for a nice I've had Villagers and dirt or villages, and I've had prime ministers and kings question me on. How does America.

"Was nineteen ninety five I was in my final year of Grad school all at the time I was working at Channel Four it was the fox affiliate become Fox from being. CBS yeah dating myself as I was wrapping up my time at Texas Christian University One of the deliverables if you've been to Grad school before in any of the liberal arts you'll know that you have to deliver a thesis not only do you have to deliver it to Your Committee but you have to defend it my thesis chair person was Dr Name the badly he's the same professor that ensure that all three or four of US black students at Tcu made it to the National Association of Black Journalists. Chapter Meeting there in Fort Worth each time they met well Dr Babbly was all about multiculturalism he still is he's all about globalism he still is and he's all about diversity and inclusion as my thesis chairperson he wanted to ensure that my thesis and my studies had some cultural lens to it so I was was deciding on the topic that I would explore a year before decided to look into what Afric- the American images were like on local television news and how newsrooms could impact it in fact I have it right here and it's called African American images in local television news and it was a qualitative and quantitative look and what those images were and who impacted them lots of interviews lots of sources cited but among the Oh cited was a book called Colored People by Dr Henry Louis Gates Junior doctor gates professor of African American Studies at Harvard University his wasn't the only book that I quoted from or cited Dr Cornel West Who's also at Harvard Laurente Bennett Junior you may remember his groundbreaking black history book one of the first of its kind at least it was the most prolific before the mayflower he went on to do work at Ebony magazine the list of citations in this book reads like the WHO's who in African American Studies and African American culture was interesting about Mike thesis is the timing if you recall nineteen ninety-five maybe nine hundred ninety four that famous White Bronco was captured on network news in that low speed chase talking about Oj Simpson. Yeah I've thought is going to throw off my entire study because we were going to see his face on television all the way through the trial well I could you write this book without quoting Dr Gates I had read several of his books before and I really admired Dr Gates Lo and behold fast forward to two thousand sixteen and working at at and T. and it's time for black history month during that time we had a program called twenty eight days and we needed a spokesperson well but it's we're low we add rabbit out of the hat spoke to my friends over in sponsorship who shared with me that they had a contract and sponsorship with PBS which would allow US access to Dr Gates my team and I had an idea why didn't we start leveraging Dr gates voice during black history even though his show finding your roots wouldn't come on into later that fall all we could do ask and we did and he agreed and never will forget the first conversation I had with Dr Gates in fact I told my team give me a few minutes to speak with Dr Gates just put your phones on mute because I have to go here and there was just jovial on the line and friendly as I imagine and I told him that I cited him in my thesis and I had a fan girl moment the call it it you know what he was so down for it he wanted to know which book I quoted and we talked a bit about it for the next three years we would work together on and off around the sponsorship for finding your roots we culminated in two thousand eighteen in December of that year here with an event that I'll never forget and we talk about it in this broadcast ladies and gentlemen I am so fortunate to have the doctor Henry Louis Gates junior on the culture suit podcast today when this.

"House, Republican leadership holding their weekly news conference with reporters. You're listening to C-SPAN radio. Well at the same time in another area of the capital, a news conference is being held by the democratic caucus. We hear first from caucus chairman Hakeem Jeffries morning, everyone. Early at the day of the caucus meeting. At a very active discussion on the wide variety of issues, but we were particularly pleased that Dr Henry Louis gates. The prominent Harvard historian was with us to share clips from his new film on reconstruction and remind us of our long journey that we've been on in this country to make sure that we can bring the values of liberty and Justice for all and equal protection under the law to life. Introducing dock gates. I reminded everyone in the room that four hundred years ago this month. June of sixteen nineteen the first slave ship left, the west coast of Africa and arrived two months later. In Virginia, thus began a long journey of the African American presence here in the United States of America. Dr gates has catalogued it almost, unlike no one else from slavery to emancipation to reconstruction, reconstruction, Jim crow, Jim crow through the civil rights movements of rights movement through the years of President, Barack Obama, and now the moment that we're in, and it was an opportunity for us to reflect on why we do what we do as Democrats fighting for the people, particularly as it relates to HR one, and our democracy reform legislation, and the effort to make sure that every single American regardless of race regardless of gender, regardless of zip code, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity. Regardless of religion has an opportunity to participate. In our democracy, and we, of course, will continue to dedicate ourselves to that causes. We move forward in an era of voter suppression and in an era. Of some even those in power trying to turn back the clock as we continue to try to move America forward. Also at the meeting Jan Schakowsky Doris, Matsui and Connaught lamb. Announced the relaunch of our task force on aging that will focus on the well being of older Americans consistent with our for the people, the gender where we've promised to make sure that we reach out to every single community to get things done on their behalf. In the case of older Americans are promise to make sure that we will protect social security, and protect Medicare and protect their well being as someone the other side of the aisle endeavor to slash and burn the social safety net in a manner. That is highly irresponsible. We also announced and speaker Pelosi has emphasized are weekend of action on health care in the United States of America. We expect that there will be over a hundred different member lead events that will take place on Friday, Saturday or Sunday of this weekend to emphasize what Democrats have been doing on the question of lowering healthcare costs. Protecting people with preexisting conditions and driving down the high cost of lifesaving prescription drugs. And what we intend to continue to do. We will not be swayed by the fact that the grim reaper continues to obstruct progress in the United States of America, and at the Senate has turned into a legislative graveyard, we're going to continue to make it clear to the American people that we're committed to the cause of lowering healthcare costs and protecting people with pre. Existing conditions and lowering the high cost of lifesaving prescription drugs, we want to find common ground. We wanna work with the other side of the aisle. We want to get things done, but we need the Senate, and we need the president to be willing to do their job. I mean now yield to dynamic vice.

"So I'm not sad. We thought we do and we're bussing through these doors right now also highlighted in this article is talking about popular movies at the time were things that like these movies concerts. Just showed like shitty stereotypes of light black folks like the movie watermelon. Contest bacon only. Guess what? That one's about. Who's like I need to make a movie about my idea of black people eating watermelon not to be confused with apple bar. Yeah. Right. Very much. So sorry. I couldn't miss them. You know, I, you know, I came to the realization like I will like everybody loves watermelon. So back the fuck off like everybody loves watermelons. Not just black watermelon. Everybody does usually hipsters in Brooklyn love, watermelon, juice. Everybody loves dolls about and fried chicken. It's just the thing that people like there's some black people who don't like watermelon and fried chicken. So get your movie out of my face. I the movie I read it like description of it and go to there's like one review review of it. It's funny. It's they aren't like Impreza of it, which is you never know some of these commentators there like there's not much to it just to African American men competing with each other. Other like the title describes. So that's the movie. And so in honor. I just wanted to bring this up as you know, we've been in know, it's such a revolutionary act like even back then super evolutionary too. So just to block you ball loving each other because black love is. So revolutionary. Black love at peace black love. That's not internal black flow of that. Isn't you know, it's funny because I was talking to earlier about about I did my thesis in college on black comedies. Yeah. Because really the only time you've got on TV in the beginning. Yeah. And when you look at Beulah, which was the first time a black woman was in the title of his show, right where she had to overeat to stay at that weight. And all the thing she had a boyfriend, but she was kind of a sexual, and he basically was not the brightest crown the box and worked in the garage is just like this whole weird non romantic coupling of black people or the hyper sexualization of women into the Jesuit Bill character. And I think it's just interesting because it also reflects back on this concept of turning black men into something dangerous allowing them. To be full human being within a relationship, or they're docile and lazy never this medium where they could just exist. Now serve some other purpose that is usually some sort of like white narrative of some sort, and that's just so great and beautiful to see the guy needs chew by people. Just loving each other. And Dr gates says Bradley pulled this quote at the end, the people like who the fuck is Dr gates I'll link the article, and you can figure out how the fuck Dr gates for yourself. So I haven't eaten in a while. So getting angry. Abc's? Angry. But Dr gates says I think absolutely black love is re revolutionary. I think that is you're talking outside of the realm of film and television, the idea of people being loved and loving each other and being treated as whole invaluable human beings who are deserving of love and care and affection is sadly still a fairly novel idea too, many people. And so it's like, you, you know, how long was this, you know, negro kiss and how we're still fighting to have beautiful representations of us. You know? That's why if Bill street could talk it's such a really really beautiful movie. Jess, it's such a beautiful movie. A just a black family dealing with a situation. And it's so it's such it's filled with so much love. And even like the way that shot, you can just feel there's such a love and appreciation for James Baldwin's words. I think it just the acids of the movie is just so much. It's so much love and you just walk out feeling. Like love for black people. And also like the prison system is still fucked up and these things still happen. So go check that one out love yourself that because I was sitting here just like entranced watching you talk here so excited about this..
