That february black tation workers had walked off the job because two of them have been crushed to death.

All we say to america speed to what you're saying been china even russia any totalitarian country. Maybe i could understand some of these illegal injunctions.

Women Share Why They Fight For Reproductive Justice
"Welcome back to ordinary equality. I'm jimmy wilson a writer editor and feminist activist. And i'm kate. Kelly human rights attorney and feminist activist. Today we're talking about an issue that has been undercurrent of a lot of what we've covered so far reproductive justice it's a framework created by black women to center our needs in the midst of a movement that has ignored us for far too long. This episode we're going to discuss some of the reproductive injustice. That continued post emancipation. And how it spurred the founding of a movement bill to address the inequity and the mistrust caused by centuries of reproductive oppression at the end of the episode will learn white folks myself included can do to better center marginalized and underrepresented voices in this conversation. And what organizations are doing on the ground to ensure reproductive justice the slave breeding industry we discussed in episode three left a painful and persistent legacy in this country. Professor jennifer morgan talked about how the historic commodification of black bodies set the stage for ongoing mistreatment of folks embedding generational trauma that persists today that shamas sits beneath much more recent oppression of reproductive rights throughout most of the twentieth century. Eugenics campaigns flourished in the united states quickly becoming the dominant scientific view. The goal was to exterminate all so-called undesirable qualities in society through often-forced selective breeding and sterilization mental illnesses criminal records unwanted racial traits low intelligence levels and even poverty were considered undesirable indicators leading scientists. Believed that all these traits could and should be selectively bred out of the human population by any means necessary as we now know all of these ideas have since been proven to be as false as they are immoral. Time and time again. In the heyday of eugenics thirty-three states allowed involuntary sterilization on groups lawmakers claimed were unfit have children in california mental institutions. Alone about twenty thousand for sterilizations between nineteen o nine and nineteen seventy-nine unsurprisingly. People of color in immigrants were far more likely to be selected as an undesirable group worthy for sterilization mainstream. Scientists pushed these views. As fact margaret sanger the founder of planned. Parenthood got involved in the eugenics movement as she tried to promote reproductive rights. On october sixteenth. Nine hundred sixteen sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the united states. In order to push the idea of birth control rights forward. She consorted with leaders in the ever growing eugenics movement. She even personally advocated for selective breeding herself in one thousand nine hundred ninety one article. She wrote quote. The most urgent problem. Today is how to limit and discourage the over fertility of the mentally and physically defective as damning as that is. There's more to the story. Here's loretta ross. A professor at smith college and former national coordinator of sister song women of color reproductive justice collective on sanger's legacy her involvement in movement. But i also contextualized wbz devos was vaulted with the jenex movement. And so because it was a popular pseudoscience at that time a lot of people were involved in it. And so to single out margaret sanger as the demon is trying to eliminate the black race is just bad historical research because in fact. She was far ahead of her time. Even i called in a sectional list one day because in nineteen teams retired nineteen sixteen. She about poverty. She wrote about racism she wrote about all the inner sexual issues. We're talking about now. One hundred years later she was so ahead of her time and so she was an accident. Early intersection analyst. Who made some mistakes. But then everybody i know. Who's a human being makes. Mistakes if i wanted to do an analysis of everything dr martin luther king junior it wrong. It's an attention. But maybe they demonize him as they do margaret sanger. Many anti-choice advocates claim. That singer sought to eliminate black people from america altogether. That couldn't be less true. She focused the spread of birth control on poor communities many of which were largely populated with people of color. But it's because they were more likely to be susceptible to unwanted pregnancies and she wrote in one thousand nine fourteen enforced. Motherhood is the most complete denial of women's right to life and liberty. It's definitely disturbing to read about many of sanger's eugenic spaced beliefs. Today though she later repudiated everything. About the idea of selective breeding we still have to contend with the damage her involvement in the movement when a well known figure participates in such a harmful ideology it may provide others the justification to do the same. Her language may also have sowed increased wariness and communities of color after atrocities committed by nazi germany on earth. The terror born from the disgusting ideology of eugenics the vocal public support for the movement fizzled and most sleep died in the united states. But for sterilization continued behind the scenes for decades and still takes place today as we'll discuss later in the
Heather McGhee - “The Sum Of Us” And The True Cost Of Racism
"Joe biden and vice president khama harris head to atlanta today where they plan to address tuesday's mass shootings at three spa. That killed eight people including seven women. Six of whom were of asian descent. The trip to atlanta was originally scheduled as part of biden's campaign promoting nearly two trillion dollar american rescue plan democrats hailed. The deal has the largest anti poverty law in a generation. One study projects. It will lift. Almost fourteen million americans out of poverty including five point seven million children while the relief plan has broad public support. Not a single republican supported the legislation. We spend the rest of the hour with heather. Mickey author of the new book. The some of us what. Racism costs everyone. And how we can prosper together. Have there is the board chair of color of change and former president of the think tank. Demos thanks so much for joining us. Heather congratulations on your new book. Thank you congratulations on twenty five years. Thank you so much. The whole team at democracy now is celebrating. Hopefully soon we can celebrate together. Well you just sat there and watched once again. The reverend warnock you tweeted while he was speaking and said everyone should do themselves a favor and watched the speech. Can you talk about the significance of what happened in georgia for this whole country. Reverend warnock the first black democrat to be elected from the former confederacy. It was so moving. I mean i really think of the crucible of the twenty four hours between january fifth and january sixth as american promise in american paralyzed nutshell. I we saw a multi-racial coalition a multi-racial anti-racist coalition that was standing up to four years of division pain and suffering and putting the man who is the successor to reverend dr martin luther king marching through the pews of that story to church and putting him in office. Along with reverend with jon ossoff. That was an historic moment. So many of the political class had counted georgia out and yet a coalition that went from black folks who had been organizing for years with stacey abrams and the touch brown Two white women in the suburbs who turned away from the republican party for the first time and generations young people really overcoming a number of barriers to the ballot in the middle of a pandemic. Did the impossible with the promise of relief from this pandemic. it's self disease that has retaliated disproportionately on people of color. But that has shown that our fates are inextricably linked and then not twenty four hours later the dark spirit of american white supremacy. Fueled by a big lie that has as its core logic racism. The idea the common sense that of course a man who was rejected by the majority of people of color could not possibly have lost the presidency. That of course when people of color vote it is somehow suspect and criminal. This is the tension and explore this tension in my book because fundamentally racism has been the most powerful tool wielded against the best of america against american democracy against cross racial solidarity against the american dream itself. I talk about how it's brought us. The inequality era and figures like reverend warnock who put into perspective who in their own lives have so much of the course of american history on display are whom we need to look to right now to remind us that that tool always robs this country. It's best

Your parents met in a way that kind of foreshadowed your future in a little bit like they didn't mean a bar that didn't mean party is actually true that they met at a library. Of course it's a. I've had my own moments with that story. But it's the absolute truth. My mother was going to interview at. What was the large libraries in sta cultural center and my father was working at a desk. Saugus he Slip some gaming but yet that's that's where they met and then my mother was working actually on the the floor where the music was where all the film were.

It was just a whole magical experience that it's sort of like everything was leading up to that moment. Have you talked to your dad about that. His show yeah. It was so funny. My dad is very mysterious guy so when he came i didn't see him. He called me till we. It was a great show. And all that but i think just the way my mind works in the art. That was moving through in the art. That i was making and where i was in that space. I can't lie that i was like. I don't even know if he came. I don't even know if he was even actually here and van but me and my dad had this really interesting connection. I mean you have that connection with your parents. You have the connection with people that brought you into the world doesn't have to be so literal or on the phone or shortly proof or whatever life. I have that tie with my parents. My parents no when. I'm going through something whether i talked to them or not. Like they'll feel it from across town or prostate or cross country in so Randomly two or three weeks later. He sends me a video of me like on my last song. You know rocking the stage of okay. Right he was legit there. that's awesome. yeah. I mean as bad i think You know amazon. There's that connection. There's that sort of thing which. I'm fairly practical person. But there's also certain things like that that i just believe in you just feel something doesn't matter where you are I know you're also really close with grandma coming up as well right. Oh yeah my best details. Tell me more better ellen thompson. She was born in nineteen forty three in mississippi. And i love to speak her name.

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.

"Almost hatton last evening. I might soon call with local women's ministry book club reading a book however compromise and one of the women says all of a sudden. This summer i have. He was a murder. virtually. And i don't know much time learning and here's what i'm doing. I'm joining this vocals. Who were and. I'm gonna have this is to ask. She is a learner. We're all learners not arrived. Brazil learner. She stepped into her woke states for her. And she's going to have to ask questions. But i'm also that if you're a white woman and you have children if you live in a neighborhood where most of the people around you a white church when most of the people around you away you send your kids to schools where most of the people are white where you're circles of influence and engagement and exposure. You're just exposed to more of the same bowl suggestion is that you get out of that bowl. You go to other places other churches that are not what you begin to join groups that have people of color in those groups. You actually go to places in town that you've never gone to before and you start to begin to expose yourself to the basis outside of the bubble and instead of talking about dr king while we listen to the words of darpa king by reading the books dr king wrote in those books not just ourselves but actually read those votes works heads and the again to have this special groups around the things that dr king road is not the wrote about the negro american revolution government wrote about the negro american and yet the vast majority of people don't know anything about the american revolution. I think right to the thing often as humans. We bring defensiveness is. Let's explore places as you do. Why if we can just be intentional about letting go about the business so that we can listen and be curious. Learn using things at cachet. Her has okay. Because that's good and so we've listened while we form these relationships and we comfort. Yes and i love this emphasis on expanding outside of what's familiar. What's comfortable and learning and reading and embracing other people's stories and asking questions. That's where this all begins. And i think we need more women in government. I think we need more women who are educating themselves in all of these issues and where would you recommend that women start as we wrap it this interview. I'd love for you to give them a resource. You would love for them to start with given the fact that we are coming up from week day and then going right into walk history month recommendation. Is this that every person. Hearing the of michael's get dr king's book why we can't wait and read that book. Starting point. read that book and then discussing not just read it and walk away from it but actually read it and discussing storrow a reading roofer or reading circle. Have this sessions about what those issues are in that book because what dr king describes in that book is exactly what we're living through today I read this book in preparation for the interview. And i loved it and i found it inspirational and also convicting. Made me think deeply about how i'm participating in not participating in things that matter. And i completely agree that this is a book i read it and underlined it. But now you're right. I need to take that and discuss it with somebody. Make it really part of me by discussing it with other women who i care about and other people that i care about generally and i can't thank you both enough for your time and energy that you've put into educating us in the three and thirty community and thank you so much for the work that you're doing for the world rachel thanks so very much. Thank you rachel. you're doing great work as well. We appreciate while friends. I hope you learned as much from this conversation as i did. It is fascinating to dig into the history of our country and learn more about our systems. Today are still deeply impacted by twentieth centuries segregation azam. When we honor. Dr martin luther king junior. It's important to remember that. He fought to in segregation and discrimination in three major areas education housing and banking. These three are very connected to each other and unfortunately research shows a huge disparity between white america and black america continues to exist in all three of these areas. Today as mike said in the interview we inherited a society that we did not have a hand in creating but we do have a role to play in the society that we pass on to future generations. Dr king's work is far from over and we as mothers can take the first step towards helping his work continue by listening and learning reading and researching and also getting outside our bubble to get to know people of color and to get involved in our local communities as emily said towards the end of the interview even though this learning can feel overwhelming. The truth is that as we learn a next step really does open up for us. Start with the learning and your action steps will become clearer. I want to remind you mike. And emily's organization common ground conversations on race in america which will link in shona. I'll keep you updated when they offered the next session of their ten week facilitated online course this spring and in the meantime please take. Mike's challenge to read dr king's book why we can't wait with a group of people you trust and discuss it together. As i mentioned. I read this book in preparation for the interview and going into it. I thought it would be really heavy dense and long. But i found that i couldn't put it down. It was so inspirational. Dr king tells the story of the movement in birmingham alabama and the summer of nineteen sixty three that began with meticulously organized and bravely executed lunch. Counter sit ins. I love getting to know him and his work more intimately through his first person account a link. The book in the show notes from a small black owned bookstore my friend.

"Can you talk a little bit about that? Dr Martin Luther King played a significant role within the at this, you know, during during his time frame during the civil rights movement, many of the organizations or the organizing that took place on the civil rights movement. Took place with the shape and Dr Martin Luther King being right at the right of the helmet a lot of these efforts, and I think that speaks glowingly because, while um Dr Martin Luther King was not leading the end of the paper say. There was an alignment as far as idea ideas. There was different that there was a line and as far as what the ultimate goals were, and I think that speaks to the fact that you could have You're different groups were different organizations that you're supporting, advocating. But you could find the linemen around things that are significant, and in this case, it was alarming around equitable treatment for communities of color, and he played a significant role in helping to organize with protest. Organizing with the John Lewis is an individual's of that sort. Throughout his time frame here, sacrificing so much in these moments many do while Dr Bob Dr Martin King is the one that's often time, um, champion and that any ship be in many respects. There's so many others that place to significant role in this movement during that time frame, those within the city those who were not, ah, part of the city itself, and so Wait can be in and we celebrate. Dr. Martin was the team because of the sacrifice that he made because he was a symbol of so much something much greater symbol of that sacrifice. The killer that the commitment that was needed in order to see the changes that were looking, um, that they're really ongoing. You know, we haven't seen the full manifestation of that dream that he spoke of But it's an ongoing commitment. It's not something that we're going to check a box on, but it's something that we have to continue to be routed in going forward. And so I think those alignment with Dr King and the association throughout the years is what has allowed us to continue to push forward in many respects to this day. I'm joined by Trevan Williams, the vice president of marketing and communications for the deep. All Americans have learned about the work that Dr Martin Luther King Jr did for this country. But As a person of color. I'm sure you have a very unique perspective on all of that. What does his work mean to you? Uh, Dr Martin Luther King, Dr Martin Luther King Jr means so much to Me because it really goes back to what I just made makes it to it's the level of commitment. You know, I looked up a few years ago at the trajectory of our country, and I made a decision. But I wanted to get involved with the piano larger level, and I was blessed with the opportunity to join the organization almost two years ago to help an advocate on behalf. I have my own Children, and I'm trying to That set the course so that when they get to my age, they're not having the same battles that I'm having at 30. Plus, you know, 30, plus years of age at this point, and I look at Dr Martin Luther King as that example of the commitment to beyond just Today, but commitment to the future and how much we have to sacrifice in order to do so. In some cases, it's sad that we have to continue to sacrifice at the level that we are, but the reality is is that if it's going to push things forward My three Children down the line that it's completely worth it. And I think many people there are off the country, whether you're black, right or what have you You have the same sense of what you want to do whatever is necessary. You want to commit yourself to ensuring that your family your future? Your Children have a better life than you have. That was the commitment that I get from document document everything I think about him as the father and what it meant to sacrifice or to put his Children. In a better position, and I think that commitment if that's something that at its base level that we can all kind of, um, take that in and realize the commitment that's necessary in order to do that. That's that's it. That's a powerful thing is what wouldn't you do for your Children? Right? That's how I think about it. When I think about Dr Barlow, the king is what the sacrifice that he made for his Children. I want to do that same level of commitment for my Children so that they have a better life. And I am we certainly saw a lot of young people involved in the racial justice protests during the summer of 2020 from those that you talked to the younger generation. How much of an impact has Dr Martin Luther King Jr is legacy had on them and the work they're doing now? I think what was unique about this opportunity is that it provides us with the with the amount of protest in public displays that we've seen over the last few years. I think it allows us To galvanize the young. Basically, that you made mention two and allow them the opportunity to say you're doing many of the same things that are John Lewis or Dr Martin Luther King did in these moments. Um, there's there's interesting video that we did. Leading up to the virtual march in Washington last laugh August as well in which we had one of the long time Snake organizes Courtland Cox, who spoke to effectively the mantle being passed..

Interview With Dr Matteo Luzzeri
"In this last part of our discussion. We review the lessons learned from the empirical work as avella's mateos thoughts on future directions. In this gnassinde line of research from the show notes. You will find a link to mattel's research which will help in exploring his work for dr martin. Luther terry completed his doctoral dissertation in the field of sports psychology at florida state university. He's also professional water skier. A coach and has a very popular water skiing. Podcast i hope you enjoy the last part of our discussion. A new already. Obviously done a massive amount of work of in- inputting this research together. But i was wondering if you have looked at The actual content of those findings or kind of that would be interesting to take the actual writing and do more qualitative research and analysis on those writings to more. Understand what what's going on there. Yeah so that's that's step two This was definitely something that i want to to follow up on Hopefully when i when my current job winds down in a couple of months. I'll be able to to dive into that. I have obviously read all the old writings And i have done some quantitative analyses on them so Defending the fact that was stopping the tricon of me of meaning. What i ended up doing was analyzing The the words of the type of words that were used. And i use the a what is called dinning quiz. Sticking quired word count so this is A software essentially dead categorizes richton words a bits of text of any length in categorizes the amount of wards in percentage across the totality of words on some categories. It's It's called the liw. See any something that has been used He's being used quite a beating psychological research. And so what i did. Was i analyzed for the intervention group. Six writing Sessions the six writings and suffering since if the expressive the expressive writing exercise about a negative. Like the most traumatic event in sports would elicit more negative emotion than the one about the positive and uplifting event or for instance if the reflective writings would elicit more innovative processing words than dependent. Back your exercises. So i did this type of analyses of tried to see more of like a manipulation of of sorts. So were might writing exercises actually eliciting what they were supposed to release it and fortunately that seemed to be seemed to be the case But in terms of qualitative work. Even i haven't done anything formerly on the data yet. Okay so that would be something that. At least i am very much looking forward to hearing when you when you had the time to look into that and in terms of your intervention. So you mentioned that it was fairly short if you had all the time and resources in the world would you look to do something. That is a longer timespan or what. What would you do differently. If you had all the time resources you needed Seats you might. You might be surprised by my answer. But i would actually make it shorter That's interesting provided a war to do this. Study again because one of the point that in my defense the mike committee made is that you're already working with athletes who are burnt out. And you made the case that they're burned out that you screen for them You we can. We can argue about the criteria. Used to of course. But i went through the effort of screening and taking those who were hiring burnout so the less the least demanding of intervention the better and despite my intervention. I don't think. I don't think was super demanding. Because the average time that is spent on these activities was twenty minutes so twenty times. Three was two hours total across two weeks. Some murky enslaving took more So i i don't think he was very demanding but if i had to do it again with burn out athletes i would probably do. It even shorter if i were to just try to increase. Presence of meaning in sports in athletes not necessarily burnt out athletes Probably i would either do the same or more but the the gold standard would be to to being person as opposed to online There are that are studies he now during interventions a lot of mindfulness intervention studies showing a lot of benefits from an online intervention compared to a nonintervention certainly in not a lot of differences between an online intervention in in-person intervention. Buddy seems to me therefore topics that are these There so the the manding and somewhat strange to talk about how to write about possibly im- person might. We might see something a little different. Yeah i mean as a qualitative researcher. I

The. South was still segregated and he said we need to take more of a risk. We need to go for broke I need to go for broke. I think he felt that.

How Does Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes/Brown Exercise Work?
"The past fifty, two years teacher and diversity trainer Jane Elliott has been stirring up trouble on the subject of racism. It can still be uncomfortable squirm in your seat stare at your shoes uncomfortable when she subject someone to the very same exercise she I unleashed on third graders more than half a century ago designed to expose racist thinking. Something, her method can get downright mean but again, the subject is racism, it should be troubling. Elliott came to prominence when the day after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior in nineteen, sixty, eight, sheep herself a white woman took her classroom of all white third graders in. Riceville Iowa and decided to teach them what it was like to face discrimination. She separated the kids into two groups those with Brown eyes and those with blue and proceeded to proclaim the. Brown. Is these superior group she allowed the group extra privileges more time recess seats at the front of the room they were told they were cleaner smarter more talented. How children reacted to this newfound pecking order was startling. The Brown eyed group immediately began to wield their dominance. The blue is almost immediately slipped into the role of subordinates. Anger flared disputes popped up. After switching roles a few days later, which gave both sides of the classroom taste of being in the lesser group the exercise ended. Many parents complained after reading about what had happened in Elliott's classroom through student essays printed in the local paper. A month or so later, Johnny Carson invited Elliott to appear on his late night talk show she became a national story. Many praised efforts at her students is but not everybody a two, thousand five storied Sonian magazine reported hundreds, viewers, wrote letters, saying Elliott's work appalled them how dare you try this cruel experiment out on white children? One said black children grow up accustomed to such behavior but white children, there's no way they could possibly understand it. It's cruel to white children and will cause them great psychological damage. Elliott spoke with us for the article that this episode is based on from her home in Iowa. She said, you think that's traumatizing try living that way for a lifetime. Elliott taught for years before she decided to take her anti-racism lesson out of the classroom and Corporate America. She's also led the exercise for the US Department of Education and other governmental groups. She's appeared before numerous church and school assemblies she was on. Oprah Winfrey's TV show several times in June of twenty twenty. She appeared on the tonight show starring Jimmy Fallon. She often faces uncomfortable and sometimes angry reactions but her goal as it has been for the past fifty two years is education. She says, it's the best weapon against racism. But good education about racism and race is hard to find. Elliott said, that's because the educators believe the same thing that they were taught and they were taught the same thing I was, which is that there are three or four different races and you can tell what a man's intelligence is by the color of his skin or the shape of his head. You can't lead people out of ignorance if you're still teaching the Columbus discovered America and we came here to civilize these savages. Will need to teach the three RS of rights respect responsibility if teachers would respect the rights of those students to learn the truth and be held responsible for seeing that they present them with the truth we could kill racism in two generations is not a doubt in my mind that could be done. Elliott at eighty seven years. Old has seen. America, grapple with racism all her life. She's marked major mile posts in the struggle over the past fifty years or so the civil rights movement and the assassination of doctor king in the sixties, the race riots in Miami's Liberty City in nineteen eighty and in Los. Angeles after the Rodney King beating in nineteen ninety, two, the protests in Ferguson. Missouri and twenty fourteen after the killing of Michael Brown and in Baltimore Maryland in two thousand fifteen after that of Freddie Gray and in Charleston south. Carolina. That same year after a church massacre. There are many others. But the problem she has been relentlessly attacking Elliott says, goes far beyond the occasional race-based. Clara. For people of Color in the United States facing racism is an everyday fight every minute of every day. Elliot said. It's only been going on with me for fifty two years. I know black women who have been doing this for eighty nine years and their mothers did and their grandmothers dead and their great is dead and their daughters and their granddaughters and their great granddaughters are going to have to do. It must be get off our polyunsaturated fatty acids and do something about this. I get paid to talk about it. They aren't even allowed to talk about it. One of the biggest hurdles in educating people about racism in the United States Elliott says is that most everyone knows it exists and knows that it's harmful but few are motivated to change it. She stood in front of. and asked who among the white people in the room would want to switch places with a black person no one ever volunteers. She cautions that recognizing the problem is only the first step but Elliott is nothing if not persistent, she says, she'll continue to educate for the next fifty years. She'll push her mantra of one race the science behind the simple words it's clear. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute your genome, the bodies blueprint that contains all of your DNA is ninety, nine point nine percent the same as every human around you. And she says, she will urge people to get out and vote November no hope of electing leaders who will attack racism as she has had on.

"Of talk about of course we could talk about Dr Martin Luther king your thoughts on on him and boy I'd like to have a penny for his thoughts on some of the things that are going on today that I would I I mean I I'm dead serious because I was raised on him when I say raised on him and I'll never get he was in the sixth grade I had a teacher at PS two oh six in Brooklyn by the name of mis keys who for lack of a better term was a drunk old battleaxe no no I'm all right I'm dead serious it was known for that and she used to sleep basically through the morning and but what she did she well we all had to have the read the Herald Tribune at the time and it was a newspaper much like that I felt was like the times it it look like that and we had to take three articles we had to read it every morning take three articles every student in the class and we had to describe him you know put the articles in our own words and explain it so like to get to get up on the current events yeah yeah and that became my interest in current events but you have to remember well obviously you don't remember but at that time that was all about civil rights it was about doctor king was about the movie and it was about governor George Wallace and trying to keep Alabama university of Alabama segregated so it was about the dogs and the fire hoses so when you reading that every day a year eleven twelve year old kid it has a lasting impression on you sure it does it really really does and then obviously I've got a little older and I never get it at you know when he was assassinated in April nineteen sixty eight I believe it was April fourth nineteen sixty eight I'll never forget that day either because I was a student of Brooklyn tech and I'll never forget my black friends committed to school the next day and like the pain that was on their faces you know the anguish that was on their faces and it really hit home so any of your thoughts folks on doctor Martin Luther king feel free to give a call but like I say there is so much to talk about today this is the impeachment stuff going on there is the the bail reform what should I say the lack of bell look no the failing Belle river yeah let's call it that I'm not calling it the bail reform anymore I'm going to call it to fail reform because it is absolutely imbecility okay just absolutely moronic and of course we have these Major League Baseball scandal which that totally blows my mind for a lot of reasons listen cheating is cheating okay but some of the things that I'm hearing from from people with in baseball like laci sees a bath you god bless them I love CC but CC shot up with you know we feel cheated you feel cheated by the Astros and the red Sox well how do you think the teams that you will be eating and the games you were winning what you had did did the big juicer in your line of Alex Rodriguez and it will listen I love any pet it any better use and and and the other guys use one little Roger Clemens a lot of hypocrisy so what like let's not to be the pot calling the kettle black here okay and you know what really blows my mind meeting I'm here with comments like from fans from people like all of a sudden they're indignant when somebody else cheated but when their team was cheating well what we picking on a guy a good guy you know what that sounds like it sounds like the world of politics yeah and it's very very early similar and since it would talk about the about the world of politics well it sounds like the world of politics it sounds like tons of hypocrisy because there is plenty of hypocrisy going on yeah all and then of course we've got the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco forty Niners going to the Superbowl yeah and I I will tell you the chiefs game it was a good game the forty Niners game stock I mean I it unless you were a forty Niners fan it stunk I mean they absolutely I don't remember the Packers looking that bad yeah well for the casual football fans out there that first game was a very fun to watch and like you saying that the later game in the afternoon was they they were so it was twenty seven nothing at halftime or something like that you know it though it was I mean it was just it was over yeah so I mean you get a hit the snooze button on that it was over but the chiefs have been installed as your early one point favorites over the forty Niners and to get back to baseball for one second tomorrow is a big day for Yankee fans anyway because they listen there's no suspense Derek Jeter is going to get voted into the hall of fame only spent as you get unanimous that's exactly right you took the what age right out of my mouth big man does he follow in the footsteps of his beloved teammate Mariano you know that that is the only question does he get in unanimously what do you think Reggie think is gonna get in unanimously you know what I think is the one guy the whole point a to point to defect to say he couldn't play died as average defense of the the the point of that I agree with you I agree with the backlog is gone I mean that you don't have all these players stacked up as they were here where you got okay right I have fourteen names like only like ten so yeah let's listen to what I go back to the day when sandy Koufax didn't get in unanimously and I said to my I think at that time he had gotten the most votes but it was unanimous or made was is that maybe Siva following when that was their own until both got any names there will be three guys who say that the most votes ever right that that's really what you're looking at so Koufax's when he finished like ninety six low nineties mid nineties I think about on the vote yet even he was unanimous he won a yogi Berra who is on his second ballot the heating in the front yogi and Whitey Ford wait in together not why he wanted it seventy four mail is that right that's right you're right you're right you're right and why you to get on the first ballot okay yeah you're right about that but anyway listen we were talking about hypocrisy Meanie yes and speaking of a pocket see this one guy to me and I used to like him okay I know where you're going to now yeah but it's I used to like him because I used to like a lot of the Democrats and the person I'm talking about is one senator Chuck Schumer the president's afraid of the truth most Americans my guess is even Republicans know what the true face and no he's hiding it we Democrats aim to get the truth well let me tell you something folks if you haven't read it and you still have yesterday's New York Post I suggest you turn to page thirty four postscript palette ticks because the polls with the post did they read a statement for the record of senator Charles E. Schumer the trial of the president February eleventh nineteen ninety nine and what they did many they highlighted comments from Schumer that I'd be it's hysterical when you think that a let me just read something here it has shaken me that we stand at the brink of removing a president not because of a popular ground swell to remove him and not because of the magnitude of the wrongs he's committed but because conditions in in late twentieth century America has made it possible for a small group of people who hate Bill Clinton and his policies to very cleverly and very doggedly exploit the institutions of freedom that we hold dear and almost succeeded in on doing cats right now I'd be the hello thank god for the internet because if it did you know that if politicians would never be I mean they're not held to account anyways but they will at least we could go back in site some evidence where it's like hello you said these words about you know of a president was being impeached and now you're saying that it's just it's really it's nice to have that we could go back and see you know what they did say and call them out as much as we can for it because it is not let me let me read another one for you if you had asked me now remember folks this is Chuck Schumer February eleventh nineteen ninety nine we're talking about the impeachment of of Bill Clinton if you had asked me one year ago of people like this with such obvious political motives could you is our courts played the media and realize the legislative branch to achieve their ends of bringing down the president I would have said not a chance that doesn't happen in America and the call phone he's on this guy it's unbelievable saying the complete opposite today he's arguing you know just against that now he said nineteen ninety nine twenty years twenty one years later raising it is absolutely amazing but again folks that structure where we're talking a peach meant but talking MLK we'll talk this respect for our police which continues to gets can have it it's reprimand I'm just here to we have an example that will will will get until and we'll also talk about I I which really me tick me off and you've heard me hurt me last week sitting here with with Bernie talking about well who would I vote for this and that and and one of the guys that I really felt as an option the only option from the Democratic Party was Michael Bloomberg but then I heard Michael Bloomberg comments on the view screw that screw that and then at seven forty you go to one on one to listen we've got the Brooklyn borough president a friend here Eric Adams coming gone he's got a plan to try and solve or clean up the mess of anti semitism in particular coming from the the black community here in New York City so well let's talk about this morning again Eric Adams coming up the Brooklyn borough president at seven forty and of course we've got you the people the listeners the call is out there so give us a call at eight hundred eight four eight nine two two two that's eight hundred eight four eight W.

Titans in yesterday's AFC conference championship game. The San Francisco Forty niners one at home against the Green in Bay packers in the NFC Conference Championship. oddsmakers are favoring the chief slightly in Super Bowl fifty four since this is not a sports column and our nation is celebrating the birthday of Dr Martin Luther King Junior today you may be wondering why I am leading with these results. Here's what the teams who competed yesterday and Dr King have in common. They illustrate the cultural leverage of excellence. The chiefs are led by CEO. Clark Hunt I was privileged to be his pastor for many years in Dallas and Kinda tasked personally to his family's strong commitment to Jesus when his team won the AFC championship yesterday. Clark told the World World I want to thank the Lord for blessing us with this opportunity. The glory belongs to him and this trophy belongs to the best fans in the National Football League Tennessee. Hennessy quarterback Ryan Tannehill made clear his faith in Jesus over the years as well recently telling reporters I pray before every game. I spend time with God before I get to the stadium and then when I lace up my cleats I thank God for the opportunity to go out there and attempt to glorify him. By contrast packers quarterback. Aaron Rodgers has made news in recent years for the fact that he no longer identifies as Christian after meeting and being influenced by Rob Rob Bell Rogers told. ESPN I think. Organized religion can have a mind debilitating effect because there's an exclusivity that can shut you out from being open to the world to people and Energy and love and acceptance. Rogers is one of the most talented athletes of his generation like car. CONT and Ryan Tannehill. His commitment to professional excellence provides enormous leverage for cultural influence whether the person uses that influence. For Jesus Jesus or not it may surprise you to learn the Dr Martin Luther King Junior never completed high school. That's because he was such an advanced student that he skipped his first and last years of high school and went directly into college at the age of fifteen he entered seminary at the age of nineteen and graduated three years later as Valedictorian and student body. President he completed a PhD at Boston. University at the age of twenty twenty five. Dr King was brilliant in his diagnosis of the problem. Facing our nation he said injustice anywhere is a threat to justice is everywhere. We are caught an inescapable network of mutuality tied to a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects? It's all indirectly. He was brilliant and declaring the ultimate answer to our melody as well while accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen Sixty four Dr King stated. I believe that unarmed truth. And unconditional love will have the final word in reality that is by right. Temporarily defeated needed is stronger than evil triumphant. He was brilliant and inspiring others. Dr King told a group of students in October nineteen sixty seven. Be Nia Bush if you can't be a tree if you can't be a highway just be a trail if you can't be a son be a star for it isn't by size. Is that you win or fail. Be The best of whatever you are today. We remember with gratitude not just his legacy but the commitment to excellence. What's that made it possible? Daniel achieved in exalted place in Babylon because an excellent spirit was in him in proverbs. Twenty two twenty nine Solomon noted. Do you see a man skillful in his work he will stand before kings. Paul was known for his is great. Learning the person who lived with excellence more than any other was of course the Lord Jesus. He's the only person in history who was tempted in every way just as we are yet he did not sin the crowds said of his ministry. He has done all things well. Now our Lord's Passion Passion for excellence must be hours. We are to seek excellence in our thoughts as Philippians. Four eight says if there is any excellence if there is anything worthy of praise think about these things and in our actions as well as Colossians. Three twenty three says whatever you do work work heartily as for the Lord and not for men we most express such excellence through service. I Peter for ten says as each has received a gift use it to serve one another and in mark nine thirty five. Jesus was adamant if anyone would be I. He must be last of all and servant of all exactly two months before he was assassinated. Dr King delivered a sermon German at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta titled The Drum Major Instinct. He described this instinct as a desire to be out front a a desire to lead the parade a desire to be I. By contrast he proclaimed Jesus define greatness as service Dr King noted by giving that definition of greatness. It means that everybody can be great because everybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You've you don't have to make your subject and verb agreed to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and heiress title to serve. You don't have to know Einstein's theory of relativity to serve. You don't have to know the second law of thermodynamics to serve.
