"Listen I'm not sitting here telling you Leo that if you're a conservative and you commit a crime you should be given a pass it's not what I'm saying I'm simply suggesting to you and I think you'd agree being a civil rights attorney that the idea of blind justice is that everybody's treated equally you screw something up here are the penalties and the penalties are the same for both people if they did the same thing with the same conditions but that's not what happens Leo you know it I mean BLM and Antifa you know burning down attacking courthouses people nothing happened to them at all yeah you look at the you know the January 6 people find themselves in the gulag I mean this has to be deeply impactful to a guy like you whose whole life's been dedicated to civil rights it's hurtful because you want to treat everybody equally and then you know the Democratic Party has abandoned the whole concept of what Dr. King said you judge people by their character not by the skin and ever since the 2020 riots Dan that has been abandoned by the left and the Democrats and by Merrick Garland I've been practicing law for 30 years I think second place would know what I know the law and when I hear Merrick Garland during this hearing today say I don't recall know what he's saying I'm not going to tell you the truth I'm not going to tell you when you hear that phrase I don't recall I don't are you kidding me I know that phrase everyone every good lawyer knows that phrase There's pride to avoid answering the truth but I'm going to tell you something Dan CNN and MSNBC they're abandoning Joe Biden guess what they're covering the congressional hearing so the message is getting out now Dan remember it used to just be one or two stations they're now covering it they're now what's happening in that congressional hearings and I'll tell you right now everyone in this country knows that President Trump has been treated unfairly it's a double standard if you're a conservative it's a double standard talk about that Virginia parent who whose daughter was assaulted talk about the man who was charged facing those charges on the abortion clinics in
Magi Helena Unpacks the Astounding Astrology of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Right. You're listening to the all -new hair radio morning show, and we are on the line with the amazing Mae -Jai Halina. Good morning, Halina. Good morning. Good morning, Kerry. It's so great to be here today. Yes, awesome. Well, listen, I want to kind of jump right on in when we talk about astrology, and I love the introduction that you gave about understanding astrology. Would you be kind enough just to share one last time, just kind of bring everybody up to speed on what we think of when we say astrology or what we should think of? Okay. Well, the very basics or the basic premise is that the positions of planets in the sky make various mathematical relationships to planets on any particular day. If we sort of had a map of the sky on a day, let's call it your birthday, Kerry. If it was your birthday, there'd be sort of a map of the planets on that day. And then if we were going to look at what's going on in your astrology for today, we would look at the relationships between the planets in the sky today and the planets on the day of your birth. And the type of astrology I do, Kerry, it's the only type of astrology that's actually based on scientific and statistical research. It's not based on belief systems. So our way of interpretation and understanding has been validated or verified by research. Love it, love it. Well, listen, one of the big reasons that we wanted to have you on the Head Radio Morning Show at this time is because we are forever honoring the legacy of the one and only Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And I was hoping that you could take a look at, you know, and kind of, you know, give your ideas on any kind of chart or anything that you wanted to share. What would you like to say today, Alina? Well, I'd love to speak a little bit to Dr. King's incredible astrological birth chart. I mean, when you do look at birth charts from the perspective of scientific astrology, they're very, very clear. But everyone while has gifts in their birth chart, big gifts from God, we all also have some challenges. And not all of us are able to live up to all of our gifts for various reasons. You know, life isn't easy. And what's so amazing to me, one of the many things that's so amazing to me about Dr. King's chart is how beautifully he was able to live up to all of his gifts and face down his challenges. This was a man who did God's work in the world. And he was able to do that through the gifts in his chart and then the personal discipline and the personal honor and the personal integrity that he had as a human being. So when I look at his chart, one of the first things I see is how gifted he was as a speaker, obviously. He was immensely talented, and he had a hunger to communicate his ideas. The way I would express some of this stuff, I would talk about planets rather than talking about zodiac signs, because we don't use zodiac signs in scientific astrology. They just haven't proven to work well enough. But what I'm talking about here with Dr. King's chart, one of the things is I'm going to say a bunch of stuff because it's not going to make a whole lot of sense unless you're a student of astrology, but he's got an amazing iron butterfly of Sun, Saturn, Ixion. Ixion's a planet way out there past Pluto in what's called the Kuiper Belt. And then he's got a Jupiter midpoint and Midas at the fourth corner of this iron butterfly. And people that have complicated and symmetrical geometric shapes in their charts, these are the people that really have the most powerful gifts. And Dr. King's chart is just full of what we call planetary geometry. And you can cherry pick almost anything and see this. You see his dedication to humanity, to all kinds of folks in all kinds of situations. You see his hunger to bring in a better world. And you see that while he was angry, he channeled the anger into trying to actually do things that could work. He channeled the anger into talk of peace and nonviolent protest. I mean, I am so moved by what this man did and what he was able to take, the raw material that God gave him, and the way he was able to use that raw material to make such an incredible contribution to the world.
Has the Left Killed Dr. King's Dream? Bob Frantz Explains
"Decades later, have we achieved the dream? Have we accomplished? What doctor king wanted for this country for his children and his children's children and yours and mine have we accomplished it? No, we haven't. And do you want to know why? Because the American left refuses to allow it. Because the American left absolutely does not dream the same dream. That doctor king dreamed. The American left has no interest whatsoever in color blindness. As a matter of fact, the American left will tell you directly. Colorblindness is racism. They will tell you that doctor king was wrong. Let me tell you that doctor Martin Luther King was striving for the wrong thing because color blindness is racist. This is what we're told. Today, every single day by radicals and marxists, otherwise known as the American left, otherwise known in simpler terms as the Democrat party,
Guest Host Bob Frantz Unpacks the Heart of Dr. King's Dream
"Very few people know a great deal about the legacy, the life, the work, the history of the great civil rights icon, doctor Martin Luther King Jr., most people know him only from his great speech, the I have a dream speech. They may know him from marches, they may know him from some other. You should know him for his pledge of nonviolence, which he asked his marchers and his supporters in his protesters who are screaming for civil rights that he asked them to take was extraordinary. It was very important. I actually reread those today at the urging of one of my callers on my home station here in Cleveland, which is W H K radio, a.m. 14, 20 the answer. You can hear my daily show from 9 to noon. Here, Eastern Time, but he should be known as well as much for that. And of course, all of his life's work of trying to advance the cause of civil rights trying to advance the cause quality not equity, trying to advance the cause of, well, colorblindness. Am I right? Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream. Today? As he said, so forcefully, his dream was to one day see his children living in a nation in which they would be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character, the literal dream that people talk about. From doctor Martin Luther King Jr., and it's one of the primary reasons that in his tragic assassination that we have a national holiday dedicated to civil rights and to him as a civil rights icon and leader.

Professor Paul Kengor and Mark Levin Share the Same Analysis of 'Marxism'
"Professor. Congress is precisely only a fool a Marxist forward, try to refashion the centerpiece of all man's humanity, the alpha and the omega around something like class for Karl Marx or race for the modern CRT advocates. What could be more demeaning. What could be so contrary to Judeo Christian values? That's what Marxism does, from its classical form to its modern American forms were less Children of God than products of class, race and gender. Here live in quotes the very worst of them. Richard Delgado jeans Stefan Sick and D a N D. Angelo for whom races everywhere and everything as his racism. As the antidote to this dehumanizing world. You live in quotes Dr Wyatt T. Walker, who was very close to representative Excuse me to Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. And in his essay in 2015 when he wrote was Steve Kalinsky. Steve Kalinsky. Walker stated. Today. Too many remedies such as critical race theory, the increasingly fashionable post Marxist postmodernists approach. It analyzes society has institutional group power structures. Rather than on spiritual or 1 to 1 human level are taking us in the wrong direction. Separating even schoolchildren into explicit racial groups. And emphasizing differences instead of similarities. Unlike Dr King's vision of judging people by the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin. Walkers. Views of civil rights were rightly based on religious values, humanism, not Marxism and critical race theory. The roots of critical race theory are planted in entirely different intellectual soil. Walker out Begins with blocks with each person assigned to an identity or economic bloc, as in Marxism. Yes, says percent Professor as in Marxism. That is an Americanism. That's what Mark Levin understands so well, especially given previous works of his such as rediscovering Americanism. American marks and is quintessentially UN American. People in America professing this noxious junk, maybe Americans in terms of citizenship. With all the rights and liberties and protections afforded thereof. But they are not Americans the way the founders of this country envisioned. America is less a place that an idea, said Ronald Reagan. It is indeed The ideas of America as it was formed by the direct antithesis of the ideas. A car marks. And his perverse heirs who today pushed their insidious new forms of American Marxism.

"I was free to treat people. As brothers and sisters. He did that for me, Marcos? Yes, yes, And and so he He did a great thing for Christians of all colors that would create anybody like their brothers and sisters. And that's exactly what he was an ordained Christian minister, and I think he would be appalled and I know his name. Has talked about that. Just seen people wanting to judge people by the color of their skin. But anyway we have we we can't let the Democrats completely destroy our history. Uh, that's the way you go if you're looking toward a Marxist revolution and that that as I know, you know this in the Stalin era. I always find this amusing because the technology was not as good as it is now, when we have Photoshop and all this But they would have these pictures of Stalin with these various Soviet Communist figures around him. And then one of them would would fall out of favor and the photo would be re released. And the person who fell out of favor up suddenly, isn't there. No How does that happen? Of course. Well, that's what happens in a Marxist society, but I was there in the seventies as an exchange student for the summer. And you know, I would ask people, Russians and Ukrainians. Uh, what do you think about Trotsky who know their right. I was shocked. I mean, without Trotsky, Lenin doesn't succeed. I mean, it was just a little fledgling effort that Lenin had going and the military was about to come across the river there at ST Petersburg and destroy their little revolution of one even getting off the ground Well and drive gets on top of a car, reportedly. And I wish we had video from that He persuades the military not only not to go across the river and put down the revolution, but to join in. And so without Trotsky. I mean, it was over before it really got started. And yet Stalin completely wrote Trotsky out. The history books, But I was surprised, uh, meeting some Ukrainian college students and getting to know them. They would say, Tell us who Trotsky was. What did he really do? Because we know there's something there about him, but we can't find out anything about him. So, yeah, it's interesting, but that's where it goes. You don't get to know your history. Well, and that's that's the problem is that kids today are not bad. I mean this whole business with, uh the, uh, What do they call CRT? Uh, Teaching teaching kids that we're all growing up in a racist society, and everybody's, uh, the oppressed of the oppressors critical race theory. I mean, this is this is right out of Mark's. There's just no Yes, no question about it. And the idea that they would run around doing this is bad stuff. Yeah, well, there was a writer that was in jail in Italy in the forties or fifties. But, uh, he realized Oh, That the call the The Revolution is not going to happen because America has this middle class and it was growing in Europe, so we're not going to have the workers will rise against the bourgeois. Uh, the way we'll have to have a revolution is to promote class. Yes, And that's what they're doing with critical race theory. There are these different classes. I know And you know you are born the way you are, and there's nothing you can do about it. You're either in a pressure or press doesn't matter what you yourself have done. It is. It is the antithesis of what Dr King was preaching so powerfully. I wish he were around. Yes, I do, too. You know, the first time I heard this. I was on a CNN show. And someone was there. Who was who was African American and railing against everything you just said, And I thought, Good Lord, they're saying all this stuff if if Dr King were here He He would just be astonished to be hearing this kind of thing. I mean, this is this is really, really bad stuff. I will say I do think that you know with with what you've been doing. With what you've been doing and what others particularly people like Dr Carson and Dr Ben Carson and Justice Thomas. I always like Justice Thomas he's got. He's made a film out, and he said They wanted a liberal justice to replace Thurgood Marshall. I was nominated and they said No, You're the wrong black guy. You can't make this stuff up. That's something, congressman we got. Uh, we got to scoot out of here for a break. But thank you very much. It is great to talk to you and Stick by that border. We're going back just after I hang up.

Virtual 2021 Sundance Film Festival opens on a screen very near you
"City, Utah. And because of the pandemic, thousands of film lovers will go to premieres, panels and parties, mostly online. NPR's Mandali Del Barco has this preview. This year's Sundance opens with the premier of the documentary, Summer of Soul or when the Revolution could not be televised. Director Amir Thompson, known as the Musician. Quest, Love presents footage of the 1969 Harlem cultural Festival that has never been seen since. Pressure's lower. Take My hand was Dr King's favorite zone and Sistema Hey, you're Jackson was my idol. She was my hero. I love this. So much listening to singer Mavis Staples praising my Hayley and Jackson is just one highlight of the film. In a normal year. There'd be long lines of festivalgoers standing in the snow to get into theaters to watch. This year films will be screened virtually through especially built online platform, says the festival's new director, Tabatha Jackson. The global pandemic hit And we realized that we had to re imagine everything. Jackson says her team wanted to create a wafer, filmgoers and filmmakers to gather will be able to chat with each other in virtual waiting rooms. Then watch film premieres together before asking questions of the casts and crews, and that's to preserve the energy and the excitement on the buzz and the conversation. In that moment, as we are confined in our Safe spaces. This is an opportunity to go out into the world and be taken around the world by some of these films as an international festival dedicated to independent filmmaking, the Sundance Community prides itself on being a bit scrappy. We're excited. I think this feels like a grand experiment, so people who are they couldn't afford it or couldn't make the journey. Couldn't navigate the icy streets of Park City can now come to Sundance. We're bringing Sundance to them. This year, Half the films at Sundance were directed by people of color as well as by women. Many were shot or finished during the pandemic lockdown. There's even one titled In the same breath about how covert 19 began in Wuhan, China. Many of the doctors said these hospitals must have known this new virus was spreading between people, but they were afraid to say so for fear of punishment from the government. Among the feature films to watch for is Koda, about a hearing girl whose family is deaf, also sons of monarchs, about a Mexican biologist and flee and animated film about an Afghan refugee. Other highlights included documentary about choreographer Alvin Ailey and another about the life and career of actress Rita Moreno. Life can be pressing America what was different about Anita and with side stories that she was a girl who respected herself. Who had a certain amount of dignity. Actually, she became my role model. The festival will also include online panels, meetups concerts and parties, many of them free. There will be virtual spaces for black and Latin. Next creators, and Jackson says festival goers can participate in the new frontier program using Webcams or virtual reality headsets from home, you Congar! Oh, in as an avatar, you can wonder around this incredible space garden. Go to parties, which are where people are going to gather to talk about films. We felt a cinema house in this virtual environment, and there's an extraordinary gallery off new work. The reason I'm so excited about it is because it really is an unusual space in which we can still come together and socialize, and it doesn't feel anything like Zoom. Sundance is also partner with art House cinemas around the country to present some in person events, including at drive in theaters. Manda Little Barco. NPR news.

Said Well, the Latinos in poverty should we include them? Dr. King says yes. What about the Native Americans? Are they in positive? Dr King said Yes, We have to include the Native Americans. And then someone said at a meeting With Dr King. Well, you know, there's poor white folks, too. And he goes, We have to include them as well. If that's not the message. How did that message gets so discombobulated up here in the 21st century? Dr King had it in his heart and you're leading the life. How do you get it across to two young black Americans toe really follow what you're doing down to follow what Dr King was doing, Darrin. How do you get that message across? Because apparently it's not reaching Ah, young Black Americans today. Well, I take a page out of which you saw in a documentary. It's not just African Americans. Its core occasions. Um, it's Latinos. It's everything across the Social Street social sphere that will we have individuals that are socially economically impoverished, and that's when we need to understand that we're in. This is one I'm a former U. S. Army officer when I was a member of the United States Army. I never looked at the masses of troops that reported to me and said, Okay, well, I got the white guys and so therefore you guys have dispatched this location. The African Americans, you go somewhere else to say mostly with the Latinos were unified is one There was one missing one mission and that's where I think the massive should abide by.

"You know, he wasn't making a lot of money taking pictures. And so this was to make some extra money from his point of view, And you know the thing That's also you should be aware of it. And the young and Dr King. They do that. Whether it was was on the payroll of the FBI. Obviously, they'd feel it was so dangerous so And he was giving them information. But You know, he did it, You know, he did it. I mean, the thing that people should be with that there's a documentary that's almost complete. Being directed by The African American filmmaker filmmaker. They feel Bertelsen who's Who's going to do a full feature like Doc going on there this way, so I'll probably dig into this story even more than we did in our film. One of the interesting points that you make in the film about the assassination is that You know? You have the FBI constantly around King. They're listening to him in most hotels, like other next to him, or near down the hall on day never warned him of threats to his life or even attempted to protect him for those threats. And it's one point I think you ask, you know, with all the surveillance around King, why weren't they able to prevent this assassination? That's exactly right. What's your answer to that? That's exactly what I mean. How is it possible as Chuck Knox was saying in the film that with any time King and his associates went to a new city? The FBI was manned up to go and follow him and surveillance. So how is it possible was what you were just saying Agents constantly surveilling king in nearby hotel rooms. Not to be aware of someone like James Away with a rifle. Who's gonna shoot Dr King. It just doesn't make any sense. And then the Youngs. Re answer to me was that he doesn't believe was James James away at all? You know, obviously, you know, somewhere in there, there was some conspiracy. You know where I personally think the FBI was involved in two Take King out. I mean, It just doesn't make sense. It just doesn't make sense.

This need And this something which I believe will go a long, long way. You are dealing with the Negroes economic problem and the economic problem with many other poor people confronted our nation. Along the holiday honoring Dr King. We wanted to take on this part of his legacy. And so I am joined now by Michael Tubs. He instituted a Universal basic income program in Stockton, California When he was mayor of that city. He now heads a foundation advocating the idea. Michael Tubbs say there Hey, Thanks for having me. It's so striking that quote we just heard because I think a lot of people who are, of course, are very aware of Dr King's vision for racial justice, perhaps less aware that he had a sweeping vision for economic justice, too. Absolutely. I think anyone who studies Dr King realizes that he saw that racial justice and economic justice we're into trying, and that's why he spoke so often about the triple evils of our society, which is of any further capitalism. Excessive militarism and racism in the work that he was doing was really about eradicating our society of those three things that we live in the community that elevates the basic human dignity of all people. I mentioned you implemented one of the country's first guaranteed income programs two years ago. Why? What inspired you? I was inspired by studying Dr King and realizing that for all the speeches and days of service, no one had told me about a guaranteed income. This radical idea someone Stockton to be partnered with the economic security project. What we saw was that it did not take away people's work ethic and did not change us into a different country, but actually allowed folks I have a floor to persist during times, especially like these ones. If it's such a great idea, and obviously I can hear that you believe it is. Why has it been so slow to catch on? We heard Dr King. They're talking about this. That was back in 1967. Your program was one of the first and it began in 2019 2 years ago. Well, I think any change is scary. And I think far too many people in our country buy into this notion of meritocracy. I think part of his will. Also, Dr King talked about his racism. But every time in our country when we try to do something that helps everyone, including black people in people of color when we talk about how the most productive times in our country and the way the middle class was built. It was built by giving things to people by giving lands to people by giving education of people that didn't guarantee incomes in that same vein, last question, Which is do you think? The moment may finally be her that the timing may be finally right for this idea to take hold. I'm thinking the late sixties when Dr King was advocating for this was, of course, a moment of huge upheaval and division and conversation about race in this country, and here we are, in that way in a very similar moment. It has to be Now we are Lily. I ground zero with sort of the racial reckoning we're having, but also with the economic impacts of covert 19. When I think if we can't get a guaranteed income and income floor at this time, we also have to have a conversation about the moral awakening our country needs because again, as Dr King said, poverty, Rob's is of the richness. Society where everyone is given the opportunity to realize their full potential. Is Michael Tubbs, former mayor of Stockton, California and founder of Mayors for a guaranteed income.

"Hi, everybody. I'm tan Xena Vega and this is the takeaway. Dr King wrote in 1960. Four's Why we can't wait, quote among the many vital jobs to be done. The nation must not only radically re adjust its attitude toward the Negro in the compelling present, but must incorporate in its planning some compensatory consideration for the handicaps he has inherited from the past. Well part of compensatory consideration or reparations for our nation's racist past would need to take into account environmental, social and economic injustices that have forced people of color to endure worse health outcomes than their white peers in this country. Our next two guests are professionals examining health inequity as well as how we could take charge of our health amid the stress, anxiety and fear brought on by the pandemic. First WN Y sees Brian Lehrer asked Dr Luce Blackstock about the impact of federal policy on the health of African Americans. Today. Dr Blackstock is that Yahoo News medical contributor and founder and CEO of advancing Health Equity 1966, Dr King said, And I'm going to read this. We are concerned about the constant use of federal funds to support this most notorious expression of segregation of all the forms of inequality, injustice and health. Is the most shocking and the most inhuman because it often results in physical death. Unquote Now that was a 1966. So it was two years after the Civil Rights Act passed, meaning? It was after Jim Crow is officially outlawed. And I'm just curious if you have an idea of what he was referring to, then and if you want to bring that statement for two today. In terms of federal health care fund supporting, segregated and unequal health care at this time. You know, it is interesting because a lot of time in the toxin trainings I do with my organization. I talk about how federal policies like redlining other aspects of the new deal. The G I bill have led to significant residential segregation and a profound racial wealth gap. That actually influences the health status of communities. I think it's so hard for people to make that connection, but when we actually look at neighborhoods that were redlined in the 19 thirties They correspond with the same neighborhood today that have the worst infant mortality rates, the worst maternal mortality rates and the shortest life expectancy inside. What I think that speaks to is how the impact of federal policies On the health of communities and how institutionalized racism can be. And I will say that I am okay was clairvoyant. I mean, we're still seeing the repercussions of those same policies today, and actually, today we're sinking. No, the fact that we don't have a single payer universal health care system That is one of the factors contributing to the inequities that we that we see today, and so I think that in order to Address those inequities. We need federal policies to correct them..

I think anyone who studies Dr King realizes that he saw that racial justice and economic justice we're into trying, and that's why he spoke so often about the triple evils of our society, which is, um any further capitalism, excessive militarism and racism in the work that he was doing was really about eradicating our society of those three things that we live in the community that elevates the basic human dignity of all people.

When the FBI Spied on Martin Luther King Jr.
"A new documentary out today called. Mlk fbi which traces the ways in which the fbi was surveilling. Martin luther king junior towards the end of his life as well as other black activists in an attempt to tamp down the civil rights movements directed by legendary filmmaker sam pollard. This documentary is based on a nineteen eighty one book by historian david garrow as well as documents released by the national archives in two thousand seventeen and two thousand eighteen quoting the atlantic. Mlk fbi arrows attempts to stifle the civil rights movement through coordinated efforts to spy on king with the hope of discrediting his righteous public image with king as with many black activists since the beginning of the twentieth century. The fbi surveillance wasn't an isolated obsession. It was part of a long running effort to keep black americans from acquiring institutional power. Pohlad told me the film traces. Exactly how the surveillance of king started how it was conducted and the effects it had on his life end quote using tons of archival footage and interviews with firsthand witnesses. The film illustrates how. Fbi's surveillance of black americans began as part of fbi director. Jaeger hoover's obsession with rooting out. Communism believing black people to be more susceptible to political manipulation as their efforts became more focused specifically on martin luther king junior and his growing influence. The fbi sought to expose his extramarital affairs as a way of discrediting him to the public and his followers but director sample are noted to npr's fresh air quote would hoover didn't bank on was back in the sixties. The press did not take the bait. They didn't reveal the personal lives of these public figures. They didn't do with john kennedy. They didn't do with others and they didn't do it. With dr king and quotes and while this documentary serves as a needed reminder. That martin luther king junior was not universally revered in his time there could be wearing that paints too negative a picture of him by including personal details like the affairs he had producer. Benjamin heddon said a our approach however quote he wouldn't be d- mythology someone he would simply be portraying him with responsibility and sympathy the way he would subject in his documentaries who was not known to the wider public and quotes and hannah georgia's said in the atlantic quote. Mlk fbi offers an important corrective to prevailing myths about king and his principles of nonviolent resistance. Which were not in fact. Widely embraced as my colleague. Van newkirk wrote in two thousand eighteen hostility toward the civil rights. Movement turned into a cherry. Pick celebration of the revolutions victories over segregation in over easily caricatured gap toothed bigots in the south and quotes and continuing georgia's. The reality was that opposition to king into the racial progress. He symbolized was restricted by region or by political affiliation diplomats and republicans alike had turned against king by his later years especially after he voiced objection to the vietnam war. It's impossible to separate the fbi's decades long commitment to tracking black activists from its relative failure to address the credible threats posed by white nationalists including those that surfaced with last week's deadly attack on the capital the fbi surveilling king and using dubious reasoning to do so isn't altogether shocking for much of the country's history sabotaging black rebellion by any means necessary has been integral to preserving white political power. The new and still contested development is finally accepting black people as active participants in american democracy and quotes.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy
"Today is Martin Luther King Day a day when we look back on Dr King's commitment to nonviolent civil disobedience to advance civil rights and reflect on his famous 1963 speech delivered here in D, C. I have a dream. A little Children. One day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin. But by the content of their character, I agree. Following last year's death of a black man, George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer and this month's deadly attack on the U. S Capitol by supporters of President Trump include including far right extremists. Is Dr King's dream still alive? Well, joining us now to talk about that Maya King with politico who covers politics, race and campaigns. My It's always good to talk to you. Thank you so much for joining us today. Hi. Thanks for having me. What might Dr King think of the protests going on today? How far have we really come on racial issues as we mark his birthday. I think it's king were alive today he would be able to draw a number of parallels between his time in his experience and activism and what we've seen really over the past 12 months, with massive protests and civil disobedience, calling out Systemic racism and police violence on But of course, the current threat that we face of violence largely led by white supremacist groups, who have felt largely emboldened by a number of Government leaders of these are things that Martin Luther King also warned us against, and said that you know if America really did continue to try to advance on the platform or legacy of racism and racial terror. That that could cause issues for more than just racial minorities. But the broader community that we see across this country and I think that's especially evident, of course, looking at just how tight security is around Wednesday's inauguration.

She is an evangelist. She is the director of civil rights for the unborn with priests for life, and she's the founder of Al Qaida. Alveda King Ministries. Dr. Alveda King Back with us on MLK Day, Dr King. It's always a pleasure to have you with us. There's three very important days on the calendar this week. Today, the honoring of your uncle on Friday the sanctity of human life being observed, and on Wednesday the inauguration of a new administration In a week that has such big importance in three very important areas that you care about. What are your thoughts on this Monday? Can I add one more day? January 22nd is my birthday and my goodness the way protest? I never I rarely celebrate my birthday because I'm usually at the march for life, which is gonna be virtual this year. So all of that it's just where Peru few collide. Convergence is imminent. So all these things were swelling and happening at the same time, which is good, not bad. And I think it's just reminds us to pray to do with my uncle Reverend Doctor Martin King Jr said. We must land on this Come yet together, brothers. I let his sisters Or Paris together, fool So coming together, recognizing that we're one human rights one below it. And to communicate whether than fight and be violent towards each other. Yeah, no. I appreciate all of that. I know that the election probably affirmatively I can say did not go the way you would hope that would you were a big supporter of the president. Were you surprised? A little at the success that Reverend Warnock Cat in the runoff race, especially considering the connection to Dr King and Ebeneezer Baptist. Nothing surprises me in this life. I tell you, you don't know. God is still God. Jesus is still my Lord. And holy spirit is teaching us all quite a bit. So I'm on that 70th birthday this week. I have been in and out of the White House for 50 years. Almost 50 years, starting with President Reagan. I was state legislator, the Democrats. I've been a Democrat, Republican independent and all of that going in and out as an advisor. Or two very gathers in the White House. So I pray for those who are in authority regardless to who they are. I was never dependent on an election for our salvation. Yeah, five living. I'm always depended on God. And I'm still dependent on Dad. I'm still working for the babies in the womb, the poor, the 60 elderly. And I'm not going to stop. Let's talk about your uncle for just a second. What's one thing that gets overlooked in his legacy from your perspective? People don't remember enough that he was bestest Black Baptist preacher. And that he depended on and relax on the power of God. I think that's important. We do recognize it. But we could recognize that more. My daddy. His brother was about the speech of my granddaddy Woz. The men and women of our family have loved the Lord Serve God for generations. Let's talk about the changing face of the black demographic, particularly this election. President Trump got way more black support than any Republican of the modern era. And yet he was continually made out by the media to be somebody that black people shouldn't like. How do you explain what happened with President Trump? I'm not sure it was just got season for him to do those four years. We don't know without from the other things that he may or may not do. He did quite a bit to serve America doing this for years. I was there to witness stand with him and pray with him for many of them. And I am totally grateful. And regardless of what human beings do, they'll not be able to erase the good that President Trump Accomplished. Got power by the power of God. Well and that that brings me to this next point. He may have been the most prayed for president prayed over, prayed for, you know, in in in the history of the country. Possibly so and then maybe their numbers are just larger. We're more aware because social media but you can't generate every generation has a limb that who prayed And we should all take part in that and not take it lightly. Not take that duty. Likely your thoughts on this week. Sanctity of human life Day on Friday and what it means where we are in that battle right now in America. Mm hmm. Well, we're right here today. Every generation has this job We wake up in every generation. We should empower the next generation while we're able to run on the field with the younger ones. We should do that and then know how to pass the torch and not let things die and stop. So it's very important and I know I'm rushing out. But you can find me it I'll be the king dot com civil rights of the unborn dot org's and I've got a new show on Fox Nation. People are calling it a cooking show because I do cook on the show. But we'll talk about issues and we pray and that kind of thing. So we must always have hope. We have faith, hope and love. Martin King Jr was right. We must learn to live together Brothers and all that it sisters and not Paris together is full. I believe that if we keep communicating rather than fighting and yelling and cursing and You and all those kind of things that we fear will make us do If we have faith in God, we can continue on together in the days ahead.

"On this Martin Luther King Day. Um, interesting thoughts I've been watching, you know, reading on social media what people have to say. Way we agree and disagree about things is funny. Social media makes me laugh the anger and people that then get indignant about anger. One of the things that was pretty consistent about Doc. Dr King was His desire for peaceful protest, and there is a difference between being peaceful and being meek. I don't think anyone would say that Dr King was a meek man. He was humble, I think, but I think he was passionate about what he was doing. A couple of things about the civil rights movement that always struck me. I grew up in the South was born in Cleveland, but I grew up in the South. And so I witnessed what would be considered institutional racism or just maybe societal racism. There were unwritten rules where I was when I was a little kid. But I also played sports and on the athletic field. There was no racism. Honestly, I was I was, It was such a dichotomy that I watched, um How it didn't matter. How? What cover you were. If you were the best player on the team you played I've mentioned before being teammates Pop Warner team mates with Deon Sanders and Watching that young man watching that kid turn into the superstar that he became the Hall of Famer that he became, um and how well respected he was on the athletic field. And then I watched some disrespect off the field. It was pretty amazing. But what I learned from the civil rights movement and from the way Dr King did things was he saw things more as much is of a Christian duty is a pastor. As he did as an African American man. And what I mean by that is his disappointment that there weren't other white pastors in the South to join him. Um He was disappointed in them because of their faith, not because of their skin color. And I remember the battle. Why was too young for the civil rights reading about the civil rights movement? I was born in 1967. So I saw the aftermath and I didn't see the fight. But watching The fight within about whether there was going to be violent protests or whether it was going to be peaceful protests and there was the Malcolm X Group that that thought violence was going to be the only answer that if you are peaceful, nobody listens. But also if you look back At what the symbolism is. It was a horrible time when people were marching peacefully, and they were bit by police dogs. They were bitten and chaste. They were they were knocked down. And severely injured many times by water canyons from cannons from fire trucks and The other thing was the growing number of white people that were marching with them that it was very difficult in the South the way it was to break ranks like that, and to stand up for what was right, and there was more and more people that began to do that. And they saw the horrible treatment and remember this wasn't just about people's hearts. This was about the laws, you know different water fountains, different restaurants, different hotels. And to see the changes that we've made over the years because of the changes that were made by that movement were pretty remarkable to me. We have a long way to go in this country. There's no doubt anybody who thinks that we're all just fine. And there's no racism doesn't exist in the hearts of people are wrong. Um, but maybe on a day like this, we can pause to see how far we've come. You know, to have a guy. Like Ray Charles, who had to ride in a different bus, who had to stay in a different hotel who couldn't play in some of the same clubs. But then the state song Georgia is his version of that song all these years later, and what an honored person he was before his death. Um It happened because there were people that were willing to stand up and say Enough is enough. And You look around it at some of the things we ought to be proud of. On a day like this, where we're recognizing changes in the racial makeup and how we see people. Um, One of the shining examples here in our city is our police chief. She e think that she's the right chief for the right time for a lot of reasons, But this is a girl that grew up in Phoenix. She became a police officer in Phoenix. She worked her way up through the command staff of the Phoenix Police Department. She left and became a police chief in another city in Oxnard, California for five years. Then she came back. And then she's the police chief. When all of these protests begin to happen, and having a conversation with her one day I said, You have a unique perspective. You grew up in African American girl in Phoenix. You are an African American cop in Phoenix, and now you're an African American police chief in Phoenix, and she said, Let me out of fourth. I raised two African American sons in this town. The celebration isn't because of her skin color. The celebration is because she is the right person to be. The people accept her is the police chief. She wasn't hired because of her skin color. She was hired because of a resume. That today is, you know that's what Dr King always wanted was people to be judged for the content of their character? Not the color of their skin. We are seeing more and more of that,.

And it's not about just fulfilling a dream. Even the dream is But they have pulled away from me because Dr King speech of ahead a dream that was part of the capital. And even then he was talking about economics. And I think if we're going to talk about Dr King And expect our Children and that's what we've been trying to do As I have tried to get Children, people to look at other aspect of Dr King's speeches when he talked about being black when he talked about the whole economic piece it when you talk about the economics for black folks, that how we get narrow, uh, and minutes yesterday on my show, I played minister into the Valley. And a lot of folks was shocked at his speech because they're limited themselves to its be just to who he was rather, someone fulfilling his drink. I did X people yesterday that they should go to, uh, get his book. Where do we go from here? Chaos like community. Capulet speech down on YouTube. But I have a lot of this means is that you don't have that people don't have but that would have known on YouTube it and he really began to talk about how whole economic piece And if you really look at that book, you begin to see what he said, and are struggling as we was fighting for black people of that we was a little naive because of Some of the things we might not have understood. It was fighting for equality for the Negro people in this country, and he began to move and talk about the economic piece and he was talking about even as we move to deal with the political piece. Yeah, Who was going to that? We were talking about the political. He's about to put people in place s so that they could represent those who was not represented, which was black people.

But none of that matters because I've been to the mountaintop and he proceeds and saying if I don't get there with you I want you to know that we as a people will get to the promised land.

And when I get up to where he eats lane, I noticed this pool of blood around his here. His eyes were open. He still had a smile on this face. Knowing over his body. All I could hear was I may not get there with you. I may not get there with you from Mike before. When the word came that Dr King was dead. Hate camera took over.

Jon Ossoff and the movement energy hes tapping in Georgia
"John asa. Thanks so much. For coming on the podcast. Thank you so much. Jonathan grade the bigger right so you just started a bus tour a six day bus tour. If i remember right where are you going. And what kind of reception have you been. Been getting because it's been a one day already so far. Yesterday we were out in in madison and augusta and we will be hitting not just every major city but Several dozen small towns will be very visible in rural georgia. And this is the health jobs and justice bus tour across the state in the program that we are encouraging folks to get out and vote to support is one that ensures every georgian has great healthcare that we invest in economic recovery and job creation infrastructure clean energy and that we passed major criminal justice reform at a new civil rights act and that is galvanizing our coalition. There is movement like energy in georgia. Right now and as. You've heard me talk about jonathan. The situation in georgia is unusual. Because you've got a young jewish son of an immigrant running alongside a black preacher. This is not how democrats have been running in the south for the last couple of decades of talk more about that. Because i've heard you say that in television interviews Mostly in television interviews. And you know you both. You and reverend warnock who. You're talking about another person. Who's been on the podcast of your both sons of the south but for you in particular you were born and raised in georgia. As you just said you jewish-american and for a lot of people. The south has not been hospitable to african americans or jewish-americans. Talk talk about your your Your childhood your upbringing a did you endure wild antisemitism there in georgia not wild anti semitism up but it's something that pops up from time to time in the life of any jewish person. I think that. Because i don't wear a keep up right a yarmulke because i'm not outwardly. Observant I would not attract the same sort of over a of anti-semitism might who's judaism is more apparent externally or as a black person might in the south. But i think that when i inflict on my childhood so i was bar mitzvah at the temple which is a a reform synagogue in atlanta and one of the interesting things about the history of the temple is that it was nineteen fifty seven when dr king established the elsie in atlanta and it was nineteen fifty eight when the temple was bombed and from the late nineteen fifties through the civil rights movement of the early and mid nineteen sixties and all the way through the present day there has been an alliance between blacks and jews in georgia and when i first sat down to have a meal with congressman john lewis because my first ever exposure to anything like public service was working as a very very young man in his office where he wanted to talk to me. You were in high school. That's why it's had very very young man that exactly. I mean we ever had for about ninety minutes. He wanted to talk about that alliance. He wanted to talk about how he marched. Alongside rabbis and jewish activists. Here was a young jewish man in his office. He wanted to talk about the necessity of nurturing and strengthening that alliance and not taking for granted that that would happen on. Its own and so i- i reflect often as you've heard me reflect about how he is looking down on us right now in georgia smiling.
Georgia Senate debates make headlines ahead of runoff
"Voting in georgia for the january senate elections begins one week from today. On december fourteenth debates for both georgia's senate races were held last night in atlanta. Here's republican senator. Kelly leffler and democrat reverend raphael warnock. My question is a pretty simple. Yes or no. Senator leffler did donald trump lose a recent presidential election. President trump has every right to use every legal recourse available in our own state. We've seen time and again that we have investigations that need to be completed. The trump campaign has filed fifty three frivolous lawsuits claiming election fraud courts. Actually the lawsuits did not ever claim fraud. Not in a single one of those losses. Did they claim fraud. Once they got in a court courts found zero instances fraud that includes one case. George that was dismissed today by a federal judge appointed by president. George w bush drudges republican. Senator david perdue who is facing allegations of insider trading. Just refuse to show up to debate as challenger don crat jon ossoff who appeared next to an empty lecture. My message for the people of our state at this moment of crisis is your senator feels entitled to your vote. Your senator is refusing to answer questions and debate his opponent because he believes he shouldn't have to. He believes this senate seat belongs to him. The senate seat belongs to the people today. John also held a campaign event in lilburn georgia. Imagine being a. us. Senator afraid of answering questions in public for fear that he might incriminate himself at a moment. Like this when people are hurting joining us. Now is who and castro. The former secretary of housing and urban development in the obama administration. Former mayor of san antonio texas secretary castro. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. You're back on the campaign trail today. Jon ossoff tomorrow for raphael warnock What are you seeing out there. Especially in response to this weekend's debate last night's debate where a david did not even show up. It's good to be with you lawrence. But what i've seen is a lot of people georgia understand how important the stakes are here. They understand that what happens here in georgia is gonna affect not only all georgians but also all of us as americans. I think most of gay and what they saw in the debates last night. Reinforce this that in a senators leffler purdue they've had two people that endorsed most critical moment of need have chosen to serve themselves to enrich themselves benefit their friends instead of working on behalf of the people of georgia. And what they see an rafael warnock in jon. Ossoff our to folks who are committed to serving the people georgia who were talking about the issues that matter healthcare job getting small suspect up in going housing opportunity as many people facing eviction making sure that we tackle climate change in the biggest challenge of our generation so the the differences here couldn't be more clear. Let's listen to more of what john also had to say on the campaign trail today. And how are these campaigns. These two democratic campaigns a sound like a partnership. Let's listen to this. You got the young jewish journalist son of an immigrant running alongside a black preacher who holds the same pulpit as dr king at the knees baptist church building a movement for health jobs and justice for the people at a moment of crisis because health jobs and justice are what the people need right now and we are running against the bonnie and clyde of political corruption in america secretary castro that kind of teamwork is unusual. Most people would. They're running for office. They're just trying to get themselves over that hurdle. Well it is. And i think we're fortunate that we have these runoffs going on at the same time as you know. Lawrence doesn't not happen where you have to united states senate seats in a runoff at the same time and i think they've done a very good job as a team and painting making sure that their message is clear about what they're gonna do for the people of georgia that get his asses the work to make sure that folks have good opportunities in georgia. And that's how they're going to govern governed in a much stronger way for the people of georgia than a leffler and purdue. Have i want to listen to something. That reverend warnock said last night in his debate because interestingly both democratic campaigns are running against republican candidates credibly accused of insider trading using their senate positions for insider trading. Let's listen to what the way reverend warnock put it. Last night. She was only there three weeks. i'm not sure she was fully unpacked when she started dumping millions of dollars of stock trying to protect herself and She purchased. That seat is done well for her. The issue is that the people who sold it to our. Don't it and the people of georgia coming back to get their seat sir. Castro is that issue getting traction on the campaign trail is especially. Because you're is somebody in kelly lafleur who was not elected Who last night into debate. You could tell just said the same thing over and over and over again and instead of addressing the issues basically just tried to label roselle warna you know as do liberal for georgia when he was there actually talking about the things that we hear people talking about table being able to afford the rent. You know wh what is their gonna come back online. What is washington dc. Doing work to make sure that they have opportunity. And to make sure the infancy can get asked endemic It's night and day away. That worn can also addressing the issues. That people are talking about the care about right now. And i'll disconnected leffler and her do our sanitary helene. Castro live from the campaign trail in georgia. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. Really appreciate
'Waste' Activist Digs Into The Sanitation Crisis Affecting The Rural Poor
"Catherine coleman flowers. Welcome to fresh air. Thank you thank you for inviting me. You've been active on this issue for a long time and have brought a lot of people. Philanthropists reporters elected officials to rural areas to see for themselves. Poor people living with this problem of simply not having sanitary disposal of human waste. I'd like you to describe the experience of just one of these tours and the reaction of those who saw what what you showed one of the persons who's reaction with i think sums it up was Dr phillip boston. Dr allston was to you in special rapporteur on extreme poverty and when he was invited to lowndes county. It's part of his official tour. He went to see areas where people were living amongst also which was the one of the homes that we went to It was a compound with a number of mobile homes that set off of a dirt road and one could see the the water lines. They carry water into the home. Going above of what looked like a ditch. Full of raw sewage and nearby was a Was a basketball goal. Which children apparently played basketball. And when he saw there was a were reporters with us On his his his tour and one of the reporters asked him. Have you seen this before. And he said this is common in the developed world. And i thought that that spoke loudly of what i had phil for all of these years did this and so what what people would see a new taken. So many people to this and observe their shock at what they saw was often in a peace pipe. V pipe running from home or a trailer to a hole in the backyard. And then when you get closer what you see. There are when you get closer. You probably see human feces and toilet paper. Aisle whatever was flushing in the toilet. that day. The one place that we win That was this out in my mind. Is that it was full of pitfalls raw sewage. As you say the person had pvc pipe there was a lot a lot of ingenuity. This involved. In this they the the pvc pipe was buried underground and it went to appear in that period again was full of you know raw sewage and you could see the eyes of a frog that was embiid in the sewage and was p p coming out from it and oftentimes depending on the time of the year and now that the days we have long warmer seasons. Their mosquito sometimes congregated on top of the sewage. Those animals will spread this stuff to wherever they go exactly. you grew up in lowndes county alabama. It's an interesting place in the history of the civil rights movement. Isn't it yes. It's very interesting place. In the history of the civil rights movement. Most people know about lowndes because of his fight for voting rights and the establishment of the lowndes county freedom organization which was the original black panther party And that the black panther was chosen because a lot of the sharecroppers had not been afforded the opportunity to go to school so they wanted to use a symbol that people could understand and also you know they wanted to slogans from their time was pulled the till for the panther When they organized their own political party and ran candidates On that part because at that time it was not But people running. This candidates was accepted on either republican or the democratic party In lowndes county. So that itself was more was a a great accomplishment on the side of sharecroppers former sharecroppers who had been kicked off property just because they sought the right to vote and that was the lowndes county freedom party that preceded the black panthers organization right yes and it's also is this area on the root of the famous march from selma to montgomery that dr king led yes. Most of the civil montgomery mind troop goes to lowndes county lowndes. County is actually between selma and montgomery
Interview with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
"The game, the structure, the style of the game that you played back to the basket center right trying to get high percentage shots closer to the basket that game has been completely forgotten, and there's very few. There's nobody who plays the center position the way you did with the back to the basket and it's like try to get the highest value shots the furthest away. But three pointers as much as you can does this style interest you disinterested you look down on it. You say you don't know how to play the game properly. Well, you know there, there are different theories about how to play the game but I think getting high percentage shots really makes a lot of sense, but it also has to dovetail with your defensive strategy also. So a great team like the Bill Russell. F- Celtics. Bill was able to to stymie any shots around the hoop and. His team. Would run and get high percentage shots down down court, and that was a winning strategy era. I mean, nobody's playing center. The way you did that is totally gone now. I think. So but that doesn't mean that someone cat had that type of skill and still come in effect the game. In a meaningful way, we talked earlier today. One of the things you said, the eighty five finals against the Celtics was one of your most important moments as a player. One of your crowning moments as a player you were the. MVP that year you guys won the Lakers one but you had to go through the Memorial Day massacre where you guys got crushed by like forty points a game over in the middle of third order and a down moment and I lived in Boston at that moment, it looked like are going to go on to destroy them. How did you come back to win and why do you think of that as one of your crowning moments as a player that series? Well I think that? What happened to me personally in that series was. Once, we made it into the finals I kind of relaxed. and. So I went into that first game thinking that. The worst is over and you know the the worst was yet to happen. So. It kind of woke me up and made me realize that I had to kick my game up a couple of levels in order to. Finish off what we started out to do because we lost. In eighty four to the Celtics and Gabe a game away. And that ended up being the the crucial game. How could you go into? A series against the Celtics who had Larry Bird who series plate you know clearly one of the great players of that time how you Gonna Like Oh, we got this. No. I didn't think that we got this but for me personally, I figured I've done my job where we're in the finals. Things. Think things will be alright and they work. One. Of the one of the chapters, one of the parts of the book that I really thought was really interesting. You talk about athletes and what they must do with how they have role models at the happy aware that they are role models and you say we can't pretend athletes are influencing our children's thinking and behavior. So we must demand higher standards from them like it or not college and Professional Sports. Machines are turning them into role models, and if they aren't willing to accept that responsibility as part of the contract, then they should seek another profession. Strong position. A little bit about why you feel that way when you went through that life right superstar High School Athlete College, Athlete, and you know the way that superstar athletes from a teen age are coddled. They are given you know love for their athletics points for their character. Society is not training them to be role models, but then they become big college players big prosed and we expect them to be role models. Are they even ready for that? I don't know you know for me. Being a black American and in the era that I grew up in all black. realized. That They would be judged by the actions of. Any problem. Black Person. And so. That burden. Was something that that you assumed. Soon, as you've got to do anything in a in a prominent fashion, you assume that burden because you knew that. All black people would be. Judged on whatever it was that you did and he's screwed up A. Set, the race. I mean that's absolutely right and you talk about that I came to realize that the lew alcindor that for the younger folk that was his name forty, fifty years ago the lew alcindor everyone was cheering. Was it really the person they wanted to be they wanted me to be the clean cut example of racial equality the poster boy for anybody from any background regardless of race religion or economic standing could become an American success story to them. I was living proof that racism was a mythological beast like Jack. Elope when when the audience is feeling like that right I assume the media is part of it. How do you? How do you rebel against that? Well. You just have to show them that they're wrong and. That that is not the case, there's a whole lot that has to be done. I into earlier. Right after Dr King was assassinated, I was involved in a demonstration on UCLA's campus and people. Would just standing there. and. It was a silent. stood. There for an hour in silence and some of US had signs and a number of times people came up to me and said, you're getting the opportunity to play in the NBA. What do you demonstrating for and they did not understand how these two things did not relate to each other at all the fact that I, I was getting opportunity to play in the NBA did not mean that what happened to Dr King was a tragedy and a crime and the. Thing to get across to people and the you know I, it's taken awhile you
