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. Especially at our awful universities. And what Mark Levin shows above all is how un American American Marxism really
How Billy Graham Stood Against Segregation
"Greg laurie. You said to me before we came on the air. that billy. Graham was very very ahead of his with race relations. Talk about that because a lot of people don't know the history i mean. I've tried to write in a couple of my books. william wilberforce An amazing grace and others that when you really believe what the bible says you you cannot be racist but a lot of people didn't live that out but billy graham did at a time when it was very very divisive in difficult in the country. Talk about that. Yeah well he was. The son of the south he was from north carolina raised in charlotte. And of course we know that there was there was a lot of racial division and all of the nation but especially there but as billy begin as crusades people wanted to hold segregated meets not letting black people into the meeting until the white people were. Billy said i will not speak to in a segregated meeting. I want an immigration and our meetings and they refused any literally came down and took down the little ropes and things that were dividing the crowds and he got some people upset with him but he also when he was really at the peak of his popularity had martin. Luther king do an opening prayer at the medicine square garden that was highly controversial. A because king was was not you know. He was not popular with a lot of people in the south of for ability to allow king. That role was ignificant people have. I watched a documentary on. Pbs the other. Day about billy graham. It was just recently done. They got so many things. Wrong historically factually and one of the things they pointed out was sort of like billy missed his opportunity during the civil rights movement and that is so untrue because even he and dr king agreed that the best way that he could help is by using his influence in his crusades is. Dr king was out on the streets and they were doing their peaceful protests and marches and rosa parks. And some of the other others. Billy misery supportive of this but they built. They were more effective in their spheres of influence. And in fact. Billy was a real innovator at that time and i thought that documentary was not accurate as they reported and spent a lot of time reporting that part of his
"dr king" Discussed on Rush Limbaugh Morning Update
"Dr king One of his most famous passages was that he hoped that his kids someday would grow up in a country. Where the i'm paraphrasing. Content of their character was the single greatest determining factor by the kind of people they were rather than the color of their skin Dr king and i. I have no problem saying this. Dr king would not recognize the modern iteration of the democrat party. He he did believe in nonviolent he he he might have had political motivation now and then played down towards the race card but that was not who he was it was not the defining thing about dr king and i so much is being done in his name that he never supported. I think he would be shocked. Probably is but it's kind of like saying this. Jfk j. f. k. would not be welcomed into the democrat party day gift k. Believe in tax cuts for example and a whole lot of other conservative economic principles. And yet all of these things that the democrat party supposedly believes that are being done in the name of people jfk. But more importantly dr king. And i'm telling you. Dr king would not recognize the democrat party today. And i have no compunction saying he wouldn't want any part of it or a large part of it..

This year films will be screened virtually through especially built online platform, says the festival's new director, Tabatha Jackson.

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.

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.

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.

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
The lie that invented racism
"What is up with US white people? I've been thinking about that a lot the last few years and I know I have company. Look I get it. People of Color have been asking that question for centuries. But I think a growing number of white folks are to. Given what's been going on out there In our country. And notice I said what's up with US white people. Does right now, I'm not talking about those white people. The ones with the swastikas in the hoods and the tiki torches. They are a problem, a threat, the perpetrate most of the terrorism in our country as you all in Charlottesville better than most. But I'm talking about something bigger more pervasive. Talking about all of us. White folks writ. Large. And maybe especially people sorta like me. self-described progressive. Don't WANNA be. Racist. Goodway people. Any good white people in the room? I was raised to be that sort of person. I was a little kid in the sixties and seventies, and to give you some sense of my parents actual public opinion polls at the time showed that only a small minority about twenty percent of white Americans approved supported. Martin Luther King and his work with the civil rights. Movement. Wild. Dr King was still alive. I'm proud to say my parents were in that group. Race got talked about in our house. And when the show's about the dealt was raised with come on the television, they would sit us kids down made sure we watched the Sidney Poitier movies roots. The message was loud and clear and I got it. Racism is wrong. Racists are bad people. At the same time we lived in a very white place in Minnesota. And I'll just speak for myself I. think that me to believe. that. Those white racists on the TV screen were being beamed in from some other place. Wasn't about US really. Did Not feel implicated. Now I would say I'm still in recovery from that early impression. I. Got into journalism in part because I cared about things like equality. Justice. For a long time racism was just such a puzzle to me. Why is it still with us when it's so clearly wrong. Why such a persistent force. Maybe. I was puzzled because I wasn't yet in the right place or asking the right questions. Have, you noticed that when? People in our mostly white. Media Report on what they consider to be racial issues what we consider to be racial issues what that usually means that we're pointing our cameras and our microphones are gaze at people of Color. Asking questions like. How are black folks or native Americans Latino or Asian Americans how are they doing? In a given community or with respect to some issue, the economy education. I've done. My share of that kind of journalism over many years. But then George Zimmerman killed. Trayvon Martin. Followed by this unending string of high-profile police shootings of armed black people and the rise of the black lives matter movement. dylann roof in the Charleston. Massacre. Oscarssowhite. All the. Incidents from the day to day of American Life. These overtly racist incidents that we now get to see because they're captured on smartphones sent across the Internet. And beneath those visible events the stubborn data studies showing. Systemic racism. Every institution we have. Housing Segregation. Job Discrimination. The deeply racialist inequities in our schools and criminal justice system. And what really did it for me? I know I'm not alone in this either. The RISE OF DONALD TRUMP. And the discovery that a solid majority of white. Americans. would embrace or at least accept. Such a raw bitter kind of white identity politics. This is all disturbing to me as a human being. As a journalist I found myself. Turning the Lens around. thinking. White folks so the story. Whiteness is a story. And also thinking. Can I do that? What would a podcast series about whiteness sound like?
"dr king" Discussed on KCRW
"That Dr King has been assassinated. I have some very sad news for all of you. And that is that Martin Luther King was shot and was killed tonight in Memphis. Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings. He died in the cause of that effort. Some people urged him not to speak, didn't Particularly the police in Indianapolis were hoping that Senator Kennedy could be prevailed upon to not come from the airport. He had just flown in. It was John Lewis. Ah, future congressman icon of the movement. You said No. These people are here. They need their leader. They've lost one leader. And of course, the pointing it overhang of that evening is that Two months, and two days later, Robert Kennedy would be gunned down in Los Angeles. It's a very eloquent address that he obviously give spontaneously. Then, at one point, he says, My brother was also shot. By a white man. In these times is a trickier to say that to suggest that John F. Kennedy was somehow brought down by the same kind of bigotry that Martin Luther King was. Is complicated now, and it was complicated then. Ah, one of the many things we lost the Ambassador Hotel in June of 1968. It was a political figure, a white man who had experienced something of the pain that black Americans had experienced by losing his brother to an assassin. And you know that speech in Indianapolis really ends on this note from the Greeks from S Colas. That pain is inevitable, and the question we have to face is what do we do with that pain and R F. Kay's plea to that audience? Was to rise above their hate and try to love Which is what Dr King had lived that in fact, the country is stronger and better, The more just and the more fair it is for all I'm asking about another speech, Barbara Jordan, keynote of the 1976 Democratic National Convention. She said The difference between other previous Democratic conventions was right in front of them Black woman delivering the keynote speech. I feel that not withstanding the past that My presence here is one additional bit of evidence. That the American dream need not forever be deferred. A very powerful speech. And, interestingly when you hear it now days it was not as political as the standards of a political convention might be. Is a powerful document. I urge folks to go to go read it. It was six days after the bicentennial of the United States after the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Who's Monday, July 12th 1976. Barbara Jordan was from a family of Baptist ministers for grandfather was hugely important to her. She was the first black woman in the Texas State Senate. She was the American story and what she speaks to in that speech is I am the embodiment. Of the promise of the declaration when in fact we live up to the full implications of that promise. Let me ask you about a Ronald Reagan speech this one his farewell address from the Oval Office. 1989 none of this. Your favorite president, or I hear they like me. This is what he said. I wasn't a great communicator, but I communicated great things. And they didn't spring full bloom from my brow. They came from the heart of a great nation. From our experience our wisdom And our belief in the principles that have guided us for two centuries. There. You struck by the fact that the landscape of the world had changed in so many ways with the collapse of the USSR. Which President Reagan noted He didn't take credit for a didn't gloat over it. On the contrary. To me the most remarkable line in that speech, and it tells you everything you need to know about the Republican Party in the 21st century. Is President Reagan said that he had always thought of the Shining City on a hill, the line from Jesus and John Winthrop that only Ronald Reagan could improve upon. They said city upon a hill, he added, shining, but he said that he wanted it to be AH place where all the lost pilgrims from all the lost places. Who are hurtling through the darkness toward home would find arrest in a refuge. And in 1989. A Republican president could still talk about A big hearted, big tent conservatism. Some people think that's an oxymoron. But this is a big, complicated country. And can you imagine a world where A single presidential candidate would carry 49 states what she did in 94. You know, at Christmas, they asked him what he wanted for Christmas in 1984, he said Minnesota The first person pronoun the point you make. Scott is exactly right. It wasn't about. I want praise. And equality in great public speeches. That you find runs through all of them. The capacity to Bring the many. Into conversation with the few. It really is about we, the people more than I, the person the speaker and to be lifted as one As opposed to one person being elevated above everyone else, I think tends to be a a characteristic Of oratory that endures because that's at its best. That's the American message that endures John Matron, his new podcast, it was said..
Civil Rights Activist, Patricia Stephens Due
"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is encyclopedia will Manica. All month we're talking about activists. Women who stood up against injustice and four a better world. Today we're talking about an American civil rights activist whose work began as a student and extended throughout her life and beyond. She was one of the leaders of the sit in and Jalen movements continuing to fight for a more just society even when faced with serious harm. According to The New York Times her FBI file was over four hundred pages long. Let's talk about Patricia Stevens do. Patricia Gloria Stevens was born on December ninth nineteen, thirty, nine fifteen months after her sister Priscilla who would go on to be partner in many organizing efforts. Patricia was the second of three kids born to Lottie Mae Powell Stevens, and Horace Walter Stevens. The Stevens family lived in Belgrade Florida for most Patricia Youth. By the time she was thirteen years old Patricia was very aware of the discrimination she faced for being black and was ready to protest. She and her sister refused to go to the designated colored window at their local dairy queen. Instead, they stood in line for the window marked whites only. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, seven Patricia started school at Florida Am University. Two years later in Nineteen fifty-nine Patricia and Priscila attended a workshop put on by the Congress of racial equality or core on nonviolent civil disobedience. Patricia then started a local chapter of the organization in order to continue the work, she tried to tackle it just thirteen years old integration. The following year on February. Twentieth Nineteen Sixty Patricia, her sister, and some other students sat down at a whites only lunch counter at a Woolworth Tallahassee and refused to get up until they were served. Nineteen days earlier, four guys sat down at a similar lunch counter in Greensboro North Carolina officially kicking off. Since movement across the South Patricia and ten of her peers were arrested rather than paying three hundred dollar Fine Patricia and. Out Forty nine days in jail. Their determination to serve their time as a statement became a norm when others were arrested and charged on fairly. Patricia leadership and courage caught the attention of people around the country support of the cause including Jackie Robinson Eleanor Roosevelt Harry Belafonte, and James. Baldwin. Dr Martin. Luther King. Junior. Sent the sisters telegram that said. Going to jail for a righteous cause as a badge of honor and a symbol of dignity. After she was finally released, Patricia continued the fight to change her city and country. One of her fellow activists was a man named John D do junior. He was law school at Florida Am University. The two got married in nineteen, sixty three and would go on to have three children together for their honeymoon Patricia and John went to the march on Washington and heard Dr King's I have a dream speech. The following year in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, Patricia took on a new role in corps. She served as field secretary for a voter education and Registration Project in North Florida under her leadership. program. More. Voters than any other regional program in the south. Patricia also worked to improve the lives of workers, the poor and other underserved populations in the US. But her activism took a physical toll on her. After being hit in the face by a can of tear gas, Patricia is were injured and she was forced to wear dark glasses for the rest of her life in nineteen sixty, seven, ten years after she enrolled. Patricia graduated from Florida Am. University it took her all of a decade to get her degree because she spent periods of time traveling around the US to rally energy behind the civil rights movement. She was also suspended multiple times by the
A Conversation With Rep. Ayanna Pressley
"Representative Presley. First of all, we love you. So you know it's going to be a hard hitting interview. With. We love you. Let's let's get into it. Okay. So president trump has clearly included playing up unrest in cities in part of his reelection strategy. He's even gone as far as to imply Democrats are to blame for escalating violence at protests, how Progressives and Democrats push for police reform in a world where an attempt at pursuing justice is spun as a rush to anarchy by right wing media and used as an excuse to become violent by law enforcement officials. Say It's thrilled to be here with all of you. Thank you. I'm big admirers in the ends of the two of you and glad to be with you today. You know what can I say about Donald? Trump. These already the dog whistles anymore there are just blaring horns you know wrapped up in incendiary soundbites and cruel policy in calcium administration. So it's very predictable. This is an old play in this sort of in movement building work you know we're used to it. How do we advance policy? The way always advanced policy as a nation nestor movements you. Know a lot of people when they reflect back on those grainy images, those black and white images of protests and demonstrations. In the nineteen sixties, they will define the progress came out of that solely as the voting rights act in the civil rights at but honestly that movement was the blueprint for every progressive piece of legislation thereafter. So this is how legislation is moved its through movement building and social transformation. That is why now things like inviting qualified immunity which bill that I introduced representative Justin Amash are now part of public discourse that is from organizing mobilizing. Conversations around reimagining our budgets to actually value black lives that has everything to do with the power of movement building, and so we have to continue to do that. We're in this moment of national reckoning on racial injustice is a culture shift occurring people. Now, a very unapologetically affirm that black lives matter but now that has to translate into power shift that is reflected in who we elect to office the laws that we right in the budgets that right those are the only. Receipts that matter. So if you believe that black lives, matter than black representation matters than black data matters, then black home ownership matters black entrepreneurialism matters in. So that's how I seek to legislate is in a very precise way and I'll in here by saying the disproportion hate heard her that has been foisted onto black Americans for generations was not naturally occurring. It was legislated was precise in codified lawmaking until the path forward must be one where we are also precise reverend. Barber. Poor. People's campaign someone that I look too often and just someone admire tremendously. Grateful for his moral clarity and conviction says for moment of reckoning the demands, a third reconstruction, and so that's what we need to be squarely focused. Dohrn is what does that third construction looked like and how do we enlist everyone from organizers to lawmakers as community builders in that reconstruction of a better word equitable world IANNA and I'm calling you Iona because I've known you since the ninety s and that's just how it's going to be. When you when you were telling me what's what? Let's not forget? This week. Joe Biden gave a speech and he released an ad where he made the point to clarify that contrary to what the trump camp is saying about him. He doesn't actually like property destruction that has occurred were some protests have occurred? By doing this Biden, allowing trump to control the conversation. Let me just say this there is an effort to infiltrate into undermine the impact of the black lives matter movement, and the fact that these motivation efforts have continued, which is constitutional. Right to assemble to peacefully protest descent is the ultimate patriotism. James Baldwin said I extensively paraphrase like I criticized this country America because I, love it just that much. She can and must be better. I think we have to be careful to make sure that our movements are not co-opted the people that I see in community who are the four of these movements bay, our community builders, not destroyers and the people that are doing that are infiltrators who won the black lives matter movement to be aligned to be mischaracterize. The people doing the work of justice seeking our peacekeepers you know and I, also think it's important that we not completely rewrite history and sanitize what these movements have looked like in the past. No. So people will bring up Dr King and they'll bring up John Lewis. Will John Lewis was who practice nonviolent peaceful protests almost died on that bridge in many times thereafter in fact, many advocates have said we don't know how John Lewis made it out alive because they always focused on.

"A A A little metaphor that Dr King gave in their to their success and what he said he say it and I and I I used to recite Disney in high school. He says if it falls your Latte to be a street sweep sweep sweep streets like Michelangelo painted. Peach pitchers sweep streets like Beethoven compose music. That was very powerful man. Can you imagine he would be in fourteen fifteen years about to tell you that a they let you know? Hey It don't matter it. Don't matter what you do just what would you do. Give it Showbiz and he and I think that he what he was saying. Is that the job title that you have don't define you ever. It is the work that you do that reveals. You'll care so you know it does ain't the title anytime we got full. Got All kinds of titled Man President Doing All type of things but but You know thing is is your character and you know if the work is honest upright and pleasing to God and give it to be a man so you know. I'm real big on the principal parts. The principal The nuggets inside of of what people say and how people do and that stree- sweeping right. If you're a street sweeper do it so much. So be the best. Re Sweep was so much that when you die somebody will say hey. They're right there. That was the street sweet. Go Yeah and that's key right there. When you do man give to and just like you say. Leave a legacy on that. So people see the stairs. Freedman's he said you know what you do a good job. Sweetness would you Michael Meal like a history sparkling and at the same thing holds in education for teaching administrators? Would ever. When you leave you will leave a legacy there you on TV. You all keys. Remember you a saw somewhere. The other day. They said a lot of times. Kids don't always remember their teacher but they remember the concept that the teacher taught me. So I'm I'm sorry. I say that backwards. It always remember the cut self that they remember the teacher because of what they did. And that's that's what is always badly just doing the best you can do regardless of what school you're at if you're at a poverty school Title One School of Fluent School. Whatever just give it all you got give it all you got so when Dr King gave speech in nineteen sixty seven To those young. Suzy was talking about What is your life blueprint and He's he gave three solid structure. Foundations The first one was deep belief indignity Worthiness and all your somebody Innis Roy And how do we as as educators get our students to buy into that principle to have a deep belief in dignity worth and the own? Somebody nece like to own your somebody like you are. Somebody had we cultivate than students will. Will you know? And that's that that that is a very difficult challenge. Antidote difficult charge in some cases particularly when kids aren't getting that reinforcement from home and we as teachers and administrators. All the only ones that don't mean however that we can't make a difference and when a kid gets to school letting them know. Hey you know Regardless of what your background is what your circumstances are and quality education can change their. And that's why it's so important that we build a relationship with kids as administrators and teachers and so they will trust that. What we're saying is something that we're saying that his sincere and something that we really mean Instead of just just talking words I know is coming up as a kid. I had teachers and I had administrators. Who did that You know and I was very lucky because I got a lot of positive reinforcement of from hall to about just who? I was what I can do. My grandfather always telling me you know regardless a who'll man is they all put their pants on the same way you put shows so you know you are just as smart as anybody else in your brain functions like everybody else in God built you just like built the next person so we get those type of reinforced from home. Our problem today is that we are challenged by a Lotta obstacles of via Social Media. through And this is a good thing in some cases and not a good thing saying entertainment and also the athletic field a lot of times. Kids think they're only worth is in being a great athlete are being I can rap really. I ain't got route. I ain't got to go to school. 'cause I'm the fans gown a block and you know the thing is that we just have to over the go com net by showing them that all those talents are good goddamn tells a goodwill but before you can do all that you'd need a quality education 'cause you need to be able to read that contract that she goes side make sure they'll be taken half or your twenty million dollars exactly exactly so also in his speech and we kind of foetal over that and what you were talking. It was the determination to achieve excellence. And I think also within our educational system. That's something that we don't get a chance to implore and to our students very often Just a push to be excellent at what you do. Although we give lead agree in as is is in some cases deterrment excellence way. So how do we encourage students to put forth excellence and what they do in those God given talents that they got right? Well you know there's a there's a word that I use a lab as call Grit and It seems that one of the things that we have to bill in our kids is staying sticking winning which is a part of Grit perseverance. Which is a part of Grit and Believing in yourself which is a part of Grit and so you know the thing is teaching a T. I think teaching Grit Just just and and and I don't know if you really teach that I think one of the things that you have to do with with students today is to be an example of that time. Faye and so and I think if you built that relationship with kids and you talk to them about the importance of being term sticking waiting and don't quit perseverance. You know Believing in yourself if they see you as someone who they trust and believe Ed continue to model that on a daily basis a believe that they will eventually come around and and do that themselves also S. I agree with you wholeheartedly The last point that he Say during his talk was A commitment to eternal beauty and love and Justice League Our students right now are in a culture of Being immersed into the Racial bias that he was like an undertone in America. Right speak own How we can get kids to love justice and love everybody in America? How do we incorporate that into our school system? Well I think we'll one the things that kids do what we have some very smart kids today. I just look at some of these kids. May I say man just head some of the intelligence keesing and one of the things that kids are very very perceptive about is that? They're not so they don't watch so much to they. Don't listen too much to what you say they kinda ridder's watch what you do so if you're saying that you know what? Hey this is. America got to has to be a place of justice. But they're not seeing just as going on in America. Say Hey man you just give lip service so again. It's practicing what what what you preach if you're saying that in the classroom. Hey I'm going to be fair to all kids in the class but they see that certain kids get different consequences and different type of Tong. Your language with them is different than it is with some while the kids then. They're going to question whether or not they're just as an equality in your classroom. You know if they see some kids dead or you know you're always calling on and another does not being called on in the same way and you get my point same way as an administrator you know with discipline they looking for that also is it is it. Is it fair and equitable? The discipline? That you that you administered They'll sit down to all sorts of different. Consequent Star quarterback get some different. Then then the then the Tuba player in the bay head if he fights you know in the class. Oh that's there so once again. It's it's the exact we we have to. We have to walk the talk and as a as a as educators. We can't say one.

"Doc Mill state The quote we were talking about Doing this particular episode coming back for this year We talked about what I will always going to start with and had the great idea Starting with Dr King. So tell me. Why did you What made you come up with starting to step aside with the impact on its case for banking. Well you know I suppose some obvious reasons first of all we all know that January the fifteenth with Dr King's would have been his is ninety. First Birthday in dot king has done so much We had it done so much over the course of his very short life span into Impact this nation And an end fill of education also and so it just seem a natural to me that Because this is January. Around his birthday we started back in our podcast to start this back with with his Quotes about his philosophy on education and hide impact. Not just just black Americans but all Americans yes and you sent me a quote pictures. Matter of fact and said that the function administration is to teach one to think critically intelligence plus character is the goal of education breakdown for me. Well I just. I've just always kind of lived by that quote I just always filled that. He was very profound When I lived in Atlanta had opportunity to go over to morehouse college where there's a statue of Dr King and on that statue It's at and And so in if you you know if you look at it and Kano break it down doctor. Dr King was a master of using words To to express how you failed in to Anti communicate with us he was Eliza extraordinary communicator. So when he uses words may He makes sure that he picked the right ones in everything that he says I believe and what I found very Intriguing to me is that he called education. A function and most people don't usually use referred to education in that manner And so I just. I just found that that that that was very intrigued. Me Because you know you look at a function of Fox News and activity on purpose natural to are intended for purpose our thing so that means that if he called it a function that means that education is a natural thing for all human beings. Yes and so. And that's when I listed it accountable. Wonder why then. Why is it sometimes so difficult to educate our children yet? That's a natural thing. This is a natural thing if the if the chew his natural kids one learn. It's just like I wrote him article while when I said that I've never met apparent that didn't want their kids to learn how many had had admitted to that. They didn't know how to help them to learn. And so I just I just like I say it's a natural thing and so I think we make more difficult than it really has to be particularly with standardized testing. But that's something that's a topic for another day. Yeah he also talks about. He talks about The intensiveness Detected think intensively. And you know labs you know when we're we're we're talking a when we are teaching we don't teach our we don't speak with that intensity a lot of times we just. We don't think critically like you said we. We need to think more intensively about things not just saying things on the surface but dig deep. And that's what he was. I think that's what he was trying to get you. And he all his last part he says that Intelligence Plus Education Egos will lead to a better character so you didn't just want to be educated. He wants you to use education for the right purpose. Did Right building character as you go. So you know During research on this thing I I'm not gonNA lots of man. I don't know a lot about Dr King on. Dr King was very important to my mother and my grandmother and I kind of like roll the wave in. So it's not like you know we celebrated Dr King's for Nineteen eighty-four. Like you know. We knew who I knew he was. He wasn't like Jesus in my household. You know what I'm saying So when I pulled up knobs doing research and are pulled up him speaking at the junior high thought. That was profound almost into you. Lie Okay. a bizarre. Here's profound right but you. You have more information about the idea. That's amazing well. You're referring to the speech that he made their shorts. Beasley made At Barron Junior high school in South Philadelphia back in nineteen sixty cell exactly. And I just met you that wear and I just a little background information on it. Actually that the king was coming into Philadelphia at the time to do a civil rights rally at at the Spectral yes In in in Philadelphia's Becker was relatively new on time and so he would be brought in all the heavy. Here's reap the Franklin Nipsy Russell Arabella final big boys were there and so the guy that was actually sponsoring. It was a guy by the name of Georgia Woods and he was a local digi there and so he had contacted Dr King and say Hey. Look if you have some time during the day. There's this Junior high school in Southfield. They're having some problems with gang activity in the. You know the kids are you know. Aren't doing ways building the principal? There is doing a great job but you know you need to get some time day. Can you go down there and just talk to a bearish? Smart Short period tabs withstood a body which consisted of that time was seventy. Ninth graders and So Dr King. Being the humble guy he was always show on humility agreed to do it. And so as the story goes The kids really weren't told about this until act like the day of school and Dr. They saw Dr King Limo Pool Up to the school and most of the kids thought it was wilt Chamberlain in admit thought he was going to be the one. We'll refer up Hewlett delvalle Perria from epic Larry so they thought he was wilt Chamberlain but outstep Dr King and so they all were to the auditorium and He gave this this this twenty minute. Speech Iraq Lavar tournaments or so to out and it really impacted a lot of kids and like I told you we're one of the things that I did is I actually Kinda went back to see After the F. heaving heads had given it at speech back in twenty seventeen which would have been fifty years later Just how some of the kids had fared who had listened to this. Be In quite a few of them had had had had done quite well. Minia several had become teachers. What had become an optician.

Those workers had served their sitting without complaint. Picking up other people's trash the little pay. Even less respect.

King was a struggle for economic Justice for the opportunity that should be available to people of all races. And from all walks of life. Dr king understood that the struggle for economic Justice and the struggle for racial Justice. We're really one that was a part of a larger struggle for freedom. Dignity. Humanity so long as Americans were trapped in poverty, so long as they were being denied wages and benefits and fair treatment. So long as I'm being open to some.

We've got to send that message to Washington DC that those are the values that. The values that Dr king represented, and that's what at this particular time in our nation's history and is incredibly important for us to come out.

"That Dr king's fifty years ago. Was among the voices who said Washingtonians and in in our city should not be treated than any other Representative democracy in the world. Now selfishly when we go to the tidal basin and look up, but the beautiful statue of Dr king, we know then in addition to challenging all of us for racial equity, economic Justice. He's also standing guard to wait for Washingtonians to become the fifty first state in our union. We are calling. We're especially concerned as Americans around our nation are eight hundred thousand people not working because people call it a partial government shutdown. I call it a lock out people who wants to work should be working who have jobs that are essential to the functioning of our nation. Can't go to work and our city has been in the spotlight on because a lot of a Washingtonians worked for the federal government. We have twenty million visitors that come to our city every year. I we've stepped up where the government is shift. Federal government is shut down pick up trash to make sure that National Mall is clean. But why can't people coming to Washington? Go to the national museum of African American history and culture because it shutdown. I stand with all Americans are calling on the federal government to get back to work in separated. From our issues of. Comprehensive immigration reform open the government. Now what we see in this year. In twenty eighteen is how many Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. In the idea, the callousness the heartlessness of pudding. They're good credit. They're good mental health and their families future's at stake. Because of this partisan victory is certainly not the way that Dr king taught us, and that is what we have to continue to focus on and not take for granted. At the sturdiness of our American institutions is real, but we can see even in cities as resilient as ours. How are people are being tested? I share with sherline before four. We started all of us probably have the experience of automatic debit of your mortgage. Now that happens every month. And you just put your your cells in the footsteps of these workers. People Washington allow me a great living. But when that mortgage payment hits on the tenth of January, I wouldn't even me be able to make up that few thousand dollars. So this is what people are dealing with right now when that automatic debit hit they couldn't make their mortgage payments, Washington DC mayor Mariel bowser from earlier today. And they wouldn't be able to make their child care payments. So they're car payments. All of the things that regular people with regular jobs are used to doing every single month. And this is what is at stake with this lock out of our federal government. So as we observe Dr king's celebration day day of service in our city. Let us all remember that the things that we get elected to do. And if you're in a position where you're leading a big organization at the end of the day, real people real people. Are affected by our decisions. So let us start this day. Wherever we go today. And remember that we're called on to deliver for the people who put us here. God bless you. All..

"Honestly, you know, you know, the hearts and minds of the American people today are thinking a lot about it being the weekend where we remember the life and work of the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King junior. One of my favorite quotes from Dr king was now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. That's exactly what President Trump is calling on the congress to do come to the table in a spirit of good faith. There's a moment right before the vice president started that thoroughly preposterous rift comparing Donald Trump's wall shutdown strategy McKay k where he glances down notes and looks like a diver taking a peek off the platform to the water far below am I really going to do it? Well, he did it, and I guess the nicest thing you could say about it is points for huts by guess because No MR vice president the point of making real the promises that democracy was not bringing different sides together to cut legislative deals for a wall. It was bearing moral witness through. Agitate and direct action that forced people to be uncomfortable to polarize population, either defend or abandoned, the evil of the status quo. There were people who took the come to the table in good faith approach, but they were quite literally the people king was arguing against his famous letter from Birmingham jail in which he so persuasively makes the case for his approach of nonviolent direct action was a direct response to an open letter from local white clergy in Birmingham chastising his approach to achieving desegregation in that city, the pastors who signed a letter, we're not ardent outright, segregationists and white supremacists. They were at least they said sympathetic to kings goals. It was just the way he was doing it. That was wrong. We recognize the natural and patients people who feel their hopes are slow and being realized they wrote, but we're convinced that these demonstrations are unwise and untimely instead, the clergy called for honest and open to Goshi of Ray. Sial issues in our area between citizens of our own metropolitan area, white and negro meeting with their knowledge and experience the local situation. Or in other words, come to the table in a spirit of good faith as Pence put it, you know, every MLK day. I go back to that letter from the clergy because it's a reminder of how seductive language of social peace and comedy and compromise are even in the face and the most obviously, violent evil. I mean, you hear an awful lot of that format of critique today about whichever group it is from black lives matter. Protesters to transact vists to young people fighting to end fossil fuel use and save the planet from warming that sure what they're doing is admirable, but they're just going about it all wrong. It's worth asking ourselves on this day will history view you and me in this moment as standing on the side of the Birmingham, clergy, saying go slow and don't rock the boat or on the side of king and his vision. The future of our country depends on you and millions of others lifting our voices to fight for.
