Michael Eric Dyson Explains Why 'Economic Recovery Should Be Targeted Toward Have Nots'
"Talk about wealth and income inequality disproportionately affecting people of color and should the economic recovery measures be targeted therefore to these people and if so, how can that be the tough one? Yeah. Well, yeah, they definitely need to be targeted toward the less, you know fortunate and the Have Nots versus to have God's they're all kind of see but dead. You know, you got to get beyond the obsession with those socialism doctor King said we got socialism for the rich and free enterprise for the poor, right the ones who are really getting socialism and communism that goes up at the top who are Distributing their cash among themselves. There are many redistributive mechanisms to those who are beneath. Look at our housing policies. If if housing is the entree in the middle class, that's a huge mechanism of economic wealth that can be measured and we can do stuff about opening up housing markets making them more Ecuador standing with the Supreme Court saying that certain practices is not just a the consequence of it used to be I mean the intent like if you had intent to harm somebody with housing or be prejudiced thoughts, okay, you were wrong, but if the consequence was that they were still harmed. So what the Supreme Court said? No, you gotta look at consequences. Well, so outcomes are as just important just as important job. As intent that's one way another way of these educational disparities. If there is a correlation roughly hewn between what kind of education you have and what kind of money you make then it would behoove us to enforce certain educational practices that pay attention to the least of these and if the tax base is the determinant for education and so many Iraq owes then the government which has been a beneficiary of and it you know of a kind of you know, Jim Crow approach an apartheid racially speaking in the law passed to you know, fill its coffers for white education vs. Black one then we owe some money toward those people who are at the bottom of the totem pole and then figuring out what kind of jobs and job-training could help black and Indigenous and Latin X people to get higher up on the totem pole. Those are a few things that can be done and stop the voter suppression. That would be Huge thing that now those things get fought in courts, but they can also the Attorney General can have engagement with these issues on local municipalities and finally in terms of leasing, you know, under Obama Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch, but especially Eric Holder was talking about these consent decrees and looking at these police departments and it's another thing to be done again. So look at them cuz police departments are extracting all kinds of monies. Look at Ferguson, Missouri all kind of money from the local people making their coffers fill while depleting resources for people on the ground. Those are a few ways and few things we can do to make sure that we can Target those monies toward the most vulnerable.

I mean it is very timely and current and though it's been out for a few months now it is still incredibly timeline current especially if you're if you're sitting at and listening to this or you're driving and listening to this and you're looking for a book to kind of encapsulate the what we talked about a little bit here in two thousand twenty. What has happened to us. Aside from the corona virus but to our country and the reckoning that the united states has had or attempted to have with some of our racists systems in our past. It's definitely something That i recommend Folks picking up long time coming Michael eric johnson's reckoning with race in america. That's not the title. It's mike that's your name then. A long time coming reckoning of race in america but you know you still are sort of optimistic in it. I mean you you see hope. Yeah so i have to ask you the same thing ask everybody. How the heck are we going to get along. Well we have to acknowledge our humanity know that we don't know everything and if we have enough of humility recognize we all know everything we need each other. I don't care who you are. i don't care. Even if you and i are opposed ideologically and you know till the amped degree. There's something you may possess some now at some wisdom some practical tip that could get over a particular problem so at the end of the day no matter how deep disagreement I believe as the reinhold niebuhr the theologian said not an optimism which is shallow virtue but hope which is a profound virtue. Hope means even when there is no evidence that what you think will occur will occur. You keep on anyway not delusional but with an anticipation that the conditions under which That particular thing you want to see come into existence will emerge that they will come into being and that you will help bring them into being. Hope is an active process because it demands that you be recruited to achieve the goal that you have in mind. That's why i remain hopeful.

"Do we think that a lot of people say. And i did a thing for the view of years a few years ago and with some middle schoolers and high schoolers actually and some of the students said listen the fact that you some of the the the clinton hillary clinton supporting students said to the trump supporting students. The fact that you can support donald trump means that you don't care that he's a racist you don't care that the things that he says are racist that he has racist policies etcetera if you support him. You are condoning racism Is that is that a fair statement. Do you think eat. Yeah i i understand their point because they're not calling the person who supports donald trump a racist right. That's that's a critical distinction because well the in this situation they were supported. Well well they were conflating. The two it does get. That's where it gets fuzzy right. Are you saying that that trump supporter is a racist. Or are you saying that they are okay with racism because they support donald trump. And therefore i mean like. Where's the line if you think. Someone's if you're mad at somebody because they are quote okay with racism then it net the same to say that they racist well. It's the same as saying that the racism of person who would want to white me out doesn't cause you to side with me in opposition to them right in other words not not individually. I'm not talking about something you know. We're we're talking about as a principal and practice if somebody believes in say let's take it in another direction. If somebody believed that they could support must be real extreme they could support a fascist or a nazi who believed extermination of jewish brothers and sisters. And you say look. I'm not anti semitic but this guy support and then you go hang if you support that guy. You may say to me. You're not anti-semitic but he believes in the erotic station of all jews. It would be difficult for me to make that distinction and and in this case if donald trump's main platform right and that's something ancillary but such a major part and portion of his belief identity ideas rested on and you know the belief in white supremacy of white nationalism. You know he could make a distinction between antifa and the neo nazis. If somebody were to say you know you know all of this but you say oh but he helps the bottom line. He helps my economy. He gives me a better. You know percentage in terms of my investment. Okay so for you the bottom line for you. Is that a return on your investment economy being strong to you far outweighs any consideration that. He's practicing politics that undercut my ability to exist much less exist well in that same economy and the quote from james baldwin was. He was saying something. Like you know you and i can disagree. We can still love each other unless your disagreement i think he said is rooted in my oppression and the denial of rights exist. So at that level yet I i think it is a critical distinction to say that. You don't have to necessarily believe that the person who is citing was donald trump is a racist. They could be a narcissist. They could be so involved. There could be an ordinary person just seeking to exist. Who doesn't wanna be bothered with a choice between my bottom line. In the economic situation of this society my state might city being an advantage to me and that's a result of the president versus saying all right but at the same time. All that comes at a price. Is that the price of my body is not the price of my situation My my society is that the price of my people is not the price of people who look like me so it is difficult. I think it is fuzzy. It is It is nebulous. At a certain point. It gets kind of one thing bleeds into the other. But i don't think it's the same as saying okay. You're a racist because you follow this do but it's also not saying that One is completely clear of any culpability. What is the what the. Rabbi abraham joshua hessel said not all are guilty but all the responsible so we gotta figure out ways in which we say you know what by upholding this particular viewpoint in the world whether i intend to are not it may be having a negative effect on somebody else and at some point i have to get uncomfortable enough to recognize that and ask myself. What am i gonna do about it. Do you think. I mean listen. It's no no mystery anyone who's listen to half of one of these podcasts. That i am not a fan of donald trump anyway. So i'm i'm playing devil's advocate here. But but a serious question though is do you think that he is actively oppressive or do you think that he is indifferent to the needs and struggles of people who are not named donald trump. Yeah that's a great question. Answered a couple ways first of all when he and his father own property and they kept black people from joining the neighborhood association or renting from them active When he was in you know Atlantic city and he didn't want black people showing up front as people came into the casino s active when he takes out a full page ad against the. You know exonerated five. They were then called the central park five and even after they are found to be. You know innocent. They are not guilty of the crime with which they are charged. He still wanted to hurt and harm them. That's active well. Is that just. Because he doesn't know how to lose anything and he refuses to admit that he's wrong on anything i mean. Look at what we're going through right now. This is a man who's not able to say i was wrong. I lost sorry. No you're absolutely right. Is bo van and you got one and the other. You've got a guy who can't lose a sore loser and you got a guy Who also happens to. i think. Have a definite set of ideas about black people in other minority is people and it makes a huge difference. But looking at it this way to if you say look if your cell phone is on silence or just vibrate versus it ring and somebody else's phone is ringing. Well you say well. The person who's phone rings knows you know. They know they have a call. But the person on silent you don't know but here's the point. The cost still through. They can still leave a message for you just because it's not ringing just because it is on silent or vibrate and it doesn't make a bunch of noise and enjoins it doesn't draw attention to itself doesn't mean that the message doesn't get through so in that sense whether it's on vibrate whether it's on you know or silent or whether it's loud The the message is still getting through. The racists manage is still communicated. I don't think you know i think. Look donald trump enjoyed tremendous support by the hip hop community before he became a political figure. Right a lot of donald trump where you know a lot of rappers us. Donald trump in their songs. Because they were you know. Avaricious capitalists they believed in the bottom line being raised end strength and they believed in getting money they believed in you know being a leader having swagger that kind of thing so there are a lot of black you know stars rap artists who were supportive of donald trump and his sense of swag aniston's sense of charm and sense of bravado and bravado that's switches up a bit when it comes time to talking about him as a political figure because as a political figure he's made some different choices and had different outcomes right to his belief. But you would hear you also still here that there. I mean people within his administration and anyone who just looks at the first hard facts. Why did he get a higher. Percentage of the black and brown vote than mitt romney. Or george w bush or any riparian in my life. I like that that confuses me too. I mean joe. Joe biden got in trouble for saying something to charlemagne the god when he said if you can't decide who to vote for you ain't black but i think a lot of people thought well.

"Who oppose you completely in it politically. How has that happened. How has there is the no gray area in between anymore. Yeah that's a great point. And you know i lived for three years and durham because i taught at chapel hill and that was from two thousand i mean from ninety four to ninety seven so i completely get your point of chapel hill and raleigh. Durham being kind of enclaves of progressivism amidst of vast range of conservative identities and ideologies. And as you said in nashville. Probably the same thing. I think one of the reasons for those packets is that geographically When certain regions certain urban areas certain towns certain villages certain spaces and places are populated by universities. So you know all those universities per square inch in chapel hill. And durham is just pretty remarkable. Right one of the smartest areas in the country. Except for my house. I was be elevated. You elevate but you're also talking about atlanta austin texas. I mean there are plenty of these pockets throughout the south. Not tennessee and no in north carolina. Exactly right but you have the concentration of by definition if you're going to deal with the university it doesn't mean you have to be progressive or liberal versus conservative but people who think for a living who do university stuff for a living who tend to grapple with ideas or create products or generates science. You know have to. At least ostensibly allegedly be open minded. Be willing to experiment with ideas trade information conversation about you know identities and practices and the light so you would think that those towns that are filled with universities would tend to be zones and regions of appreciation for open minded engagement whereas right outside of them. You know where people are not necessarily penetrated by those kinds of places spaces and consideration where the colleges in that the university's not there You know there's a different feel. And i'm not trying to be an elitist by saying oh. The universities are enlightened and those outside or not. that's not what i'm saying. I'm just saying the kind of people are tends to draw the kind of perspectives. It tends to generate and the kind of areas that it tends to liberalize as a result of proximity to some of these Some of these schools. And so it's but there's an interesting. Yeah but there's a sharp line. I mean you just you go away from these areas you go away from atlanta. Just a bit and you. There's it's there bubbles. I mean is it the responsibility of those folks who live in a place like chapel hill or austin texas to do more outreach to understand who's around them i mean who's at fault here for not trying to see the other side if those folks in the university towns like austin and charlottesville virginia or wherever are truly open minded and enlightened. Don't they need to kind of understand what's happening and understand the points of view of people within an hour of where they live. There's no question about that. I think absolutely right. I mean i. I guess people were kind of surprised. Matthew mcconaughey made your point a couple of weeks ago. Oh did he. Yeah same train. We have the same trainer to act most pretty. So you know you're going through so you know you Any was saying basically that That in hollywood you know looking down the elise looking down on those who are not you know hicks and so on and i think that's a legitimate point so i would never deny that. I think it is incumbent upon those to whom much is given much is required so those who may not understand those who may not be inclined to agree those who are inclined not to embrace Those of us who think a certain way. Act a certain way. Behave a certain way Yeah i think that it is incumbent upon us to try to reach out to the other side figure it out. Think about what's going on the flip side of though and what i've thought about especially with mcconaughey is you know for all these trump folk in those folks who were attracted to that. And i'm not suggesting that anybody who's therefore outside of the liberals zones and spheres of university life are automatically attracted to trump. i'm saying historically in the last four years that has often been the case and you know. James baldwin had align allah flooded here but it was something to the effect. Look we can always be open minded and deal with ideas that are beyond the pale where that ends wear. My very existence is seen by you as a trouble as a problem that you wanna shut me down white me out. There's no kind of exchange value of insight at that level where you know you think my very existence whether because the color sexuality or gender is itself the problem that it carries with it an a on on alterable kind of you know persona personality identity that we can't do away with and at that level it gets because you are as a human being certainly open to and empathetic with people who are quite different. Who believes differently but if the very existence you have is called into question by those who would want to you know debate or challenger identities or ideas. Those who think that just 'cause you exist the way you do that's a fundamental problem. That's a more difficult thing to get at. And it's that the people say you're right to swing your fist ins where my nose begins right there. It's it's sort of the same sort of the same issue..

"When time magazine released the finalists for their twenty twenty person of the year very few of the finals were surprising. Joe biden and donald trump. Were not surprising at all. The presidential campaign dominated most of the year. Anthony fauci and frontline health workers as finalist should have shocked one either. Twenty twenty will likely be remembered in history books as the pandemic shut down the entire world. The fourth finalist. However i must admit was a bit more unexpected for time had included racial justice warriors as potential persons of the year as well now surely nobody could begin to question the much-needed impact groups fighting for and protesting for an advocating. For rachel's justice had in the twenty twenty and perhaps the ground swell of support for that fight for racial equality reached a pinnacle this year. Especially this past summer but in a year so dominated by so much news and so many tragedies and controversies. It's actually almost hard to remember that. Those protests and demonstrations for much-needed change all happened in this calendar year. Yes that all happened in twenty twenty as well so it sort of begs.

"Next new york times bestselling author dr michael. Eric dyson is lie to talk about how the tragic deaths of brianna taylor and floyd helped inspire the racial reckoning in america. That's been a long time coming. Welcome back the way. You know. Who handled tragedies like george floyd and brianna taylor only deepen the country's racial divide but brilliant new book longtime coming reckoning with race in america takes an unflinching look at how it was long before he showed up and how to finally get it on the road to redemption. Please welcome one of our favorite people new york times bestselling author professor at vanderbilt university. Dr michael eric dyson. Welcome back good to see you man. Good the c o two man. I feel like old home week in here in way. His last time we saw you was in february in the studio. But since then we've yeah we've since then we've had you know who had a long many months left on his presidency. Global pandemic protests for civil rights broke out. Joe biden and kamala harris were elected. A lot has happened and having watched all of this. How you feel about where we are right now. Yeah that's a great way to set it up. You know back in the nineties they start talking about cindy makes a synergy of pandemics so on the one hand we had the global virus that has besieged the bodies of people all over the world. The doctor just told us about the latest protocol and etiquette to try to get us the safety but we also had the recognition of a ratio pandemic. So we had you know covid nineteen and then we had colbert sixteen thousand nine hundred. We've been grappling with this for so we so we're gonna get him back but it's amazing that it's too we have been dealing with this idea of race and went to do about it. You know as you said since sixteen nineteen that is a hell of iran. And i wonder. Is there a way to get through this. Divide all. I'll ask you guys as we try to get. Get him back. I mean is there a way you think to get through this racial divide. I'll start with you sunny. Well i think michael. Professor dyson book is incredible and it does somewhat give us not only the history. But the blueprint going forward and things that can be done to change. And i think what's very interesting. Is you know you heard. Joe biden during his acceptance speech. He said he knowledge the impact black-americans had and he said on his election and he said you've always had my back. And i'll have yours. And so i think when you have a president that is saying i see you. I recognize your contributions. And i'm going to do whatever i can to have your back. I think that is an incredible start. Because we're seeing from the tippy tippy top of the government and i'm hopeful that we'll be able to bridge the gap especially when you look at President-elect biden's lift every voice plan for for black america and. I think it needs to start probably from top there right. You know my my joining the world is that every every country seems to have its problem of of racism every country. The other about the and. I'm sure the professor will explain this of course but that to me. Is somebody like trump in office. Who gives who gives airtime sunlight on racists they come out of the woodwork. And that's all i had to say let's say was yesterday of course all right. Yeah kenny you back with us here can you hear me. Can you see me. you know who it was. Yeah we could. We can see we could hear. You are very good very good. Yeah you know who was undermining me. You look stop hating on me bro. I got a call you out. You ambitious the pandemic talking about the global pandemic of the virus and the pandemic of racism. And there's you all have brilliantly talked about it We have been grappling with this issue from the beginning of this nation's history and here we are now george. Floyd opened the minds of many people but as miss goldberg suggested app. Absolutely we know that for the very beginning. People have been not missing the pandemic and slavery in jim crow in a what whitewater black water fountains and horrible schools that we were relegated to. So we've been building up to this for a while but maybe because we were all at home. The pandemic hatice watching our screens. When george floyd death occurred when the when the knee of derek chauvin imposed upon the neck of george floyd he has already mortally bruised column his neck. He was xfinity as fixated and people say. This is enough even white brothers and sisters. Said we gotta hit the streets along with black brothers and sisters and others because this is enough and the president of the united states of america with his megalomania has been a megaphone for the worst instincts in america and for the most vicious denunciation of our humanity. Thank god we have shifted from this president to a new president president biden and president vice president harris who understand the nature of existence for people of color and for all of us to come together. We gotta make it e. his own them out of many one and michael i was i was saying that When when we lost you when you look of president-elect biden's victory speech he acknowledged the significant impact. Black american voters had on his vice president. Elect coppola harasses historic win. He recognized that and he said you've always had my back and have yours in your view. How do you think he can best do that. We've heard about his lift. Every voice plan for black america but does he bridge this divide. How does he make it better for black americans. You have a great point first of all. When have you heard a president. Say that. What president in american history has explicitly articulated his debt. What he owes two african american people because he recognizes we had is back. Now he has ours. That's beautiful first of all not being. Donald trump is a huge start number to try to forge connections between disparate groups. We know that he has a reputation for reaching across the aisle. That's good but he's got to reach over as he has already done to progressive forces within the democratic party. And then also he's got to talk about. What are the issues that particularly plague african american communities. We know that criminal justice reform is a necessity. We know that dealing with the disproportionate impact of this kobe. Virus upon black and brown bodies is serious. We know that education disparities in this country are huge. And we know the gulf between the have gots in the have nuts home ownership because the bleed off the greatest bleed off of black wealth ever happened during the housing bubble that burst on black americans. So when you address those issues along with police brutality we are living in a nation. Where if you hold your hands up you get shot if you put them down you get shot if you agree with the police. You get shot. If you don't agree with the police you get shot. The fact is it's not what we do. It's who we are that seems to exacerbate tensions between law enforcement and african american communities and we have to address that. I know some people have been outraged by the use of abolish the police. Guess what in the eighteen fifties many white americans were against abolishing slavery. So that the very word. Abolition has called some people problems. It has been a standing tradition in america but as a left is myself as progressive. I'm not where to any language. I don't want the commercial. I want the product. Give us the relief of suffering when somebody calls the authorities for a person who is mentally unstable. Don't send the cops with batons tasers sin a a productive therapist or somebody who's trained to relieve the hurt and pain that they might experience so that they won't be killed so defunding. The police is another way of saying. Let's reassigned monies to those elements and those departments in our public safety realm that attend to the hurts and pains of people who are most at risk and when we do that then we can respect the fact that we want law and order. We just want the cops show up. They don't see us automatically as the criminals and began to hurt us in harmless and ways that many white brothers and sisters can scarcely imagine. Okay well said sir. I can just imagine that. Your classes are riveting over at vanderbilt. So you've said that before you you've said before that you're not a fan of cancel culture and you're down in the book that while it may feel satisfying in the moment it's simply.

"And obstacles that buffet them daily. So you're absolutely right in. It's a good reminder for us not to be binary, but I will say this. The black white divide has been the major artery through which the blood of bigotry has flown throughout the body politic flowed throughout the veins of this nation from its inception. So even though you're absolutely right as an Asian American. You don't have white privilege but you. Can enjoy sometimes honorary white status into acknowledged that I think is part and parcel of the privileges that have attached to Asian American identity as well as the the nefarious harmful stereotypes that have been attached to agent brothers and sisters in this country. One of my former students Kimberly Yam I would recommend that you engage her on twitter and read some of her articles. writes brilliantly about that internee. Scenes may so to speak, speak and the. The ways in which Asian Americans who have been buffeted by racism in this country right now with the president talking about kung-fu right right now we have nefarious anti Asian sentiments, and also the expression within Asian American culture of some racist beliefs that have to be acknowledged as well so I think it's a much far more complicated thing, but it's necessary professional. I heard Dan is saying that. He acknowledges that he's in sort of middle space. In America and I thought he was asking of what. Did. You have any advice or thoughts on what what non black people of color could do to you sort of? More rigorously advance! The cause of racial equality right well I hope I was trying to say that. The that the clarification of status vis-a-vis dominant white culture is not simply about a white privilege, but an honorary white set aside converted that many Asian brothers and sisters don't seek to have, but then yes, to leverage whatever advantages or spaces that people of color have as Cape quote in Allah I think that black people have to speak out against anti Asian sentiment in this country have to talk about the way in which the ideal Asian. Stereotype has has disadvantaged Asian brothers and sisters within a hierarchy of privilege within Asian culture in a way we have to talk about the way in which the seduction of white identities have punished agent, brothers and sisters, and to believing or we forcing them to to to to admit that they straightened. Their is and configure their bodies. According to a white ideal, we have to be an empathy and solidarity with. With Asian brothers and sisters, and in turn I think Asian brothers and sisters can be in solidarity with other people of Color who struggle by joining that struggle by saying that the anti blackness that we see going on in this country and culture is a harbinger for the kinds of anti sentiments that exists there. We are perpetually the the kind of canary in the coal mining. What happens to Black People I. Too many other. People of Color across the board as well so thank you for asking me to be more specific there. We've just got about a minute and a half left here and we've got a caller I'm just gonNA actually take Melissa's questioned. Sorry Melissa I. Don't have time to put you on. The album's going to steal your question, and and forward it to press professor dyson here. MELISSA IS A. Dentist as a young white person, and she says it's really hard sometimes to have those conversations. With other white people, so she's wondering if you had specific advice on how to have those conversations or to start them well a thank you for saying that be you know, do it nicely? Go home for Thanksgiving and then when you have a conversation, you see granny or nephew or your grandson or your cousin sank something out of order. Just challenge him each Turkey I and your Pumpkin Pie. Don't be stupid, but after that. Get to business and do it where you are. It is uncomfortable, but imagine how uncomfortable it is to look out and see black people die every day. Imagine how comfortable with is as a black person to see George Floyd die so when you compare that you say to yourself, you know what let me be a bit braver. Let me be a bit more courageous. How can I compare my discomfort as a white person in telling another white person the truth when I see black people having to deal daily with the death of loved? Loved ones for no other reason than their skin color, and then join with other white people who have done this before. Read Robin Di Angelo's book. white fragility read essays by Tim. Wise read nolaac native. How Irish became white, read, picky, Macintosh and Jane Elliott there are many other white people who have talked about this who talk about the difficulty of being white and challenging other white people to do the right thing, and then if you've got a chance after all that re tears, we cannot stop a sermon to White America.

This remarkable moment in America's history, in America's present and where we might go next. Professor Days and I wanted to actually spend a couple minutes talking with you specifically about. Policing and law enforcement in America. Because I think this is one of the places where. We have seen it. I think it's fair to say we've seen the the most remarkable, almost immediate actual Actions or policy proposals emerged over a short period of time in a way. We hadn't seen before Even the people have been asking for it. But we're seeing practical steps being taken now in or trying to be taken in changing, policing de does is does that is remarkable to you as it is to me. It is remarkable. It's overdue. It's necessary, and it's crucial if we're going to preserve even a shred of our reputation a hint. Of The allegation that we are a democracy. and. Policing has gotten way out of control. It's been out of control for so long and the win which black bodies have been literally and metaphorically policed in this society, has now come to a head when we see police, people wantonly destroying a black life, wantonly engaging in acts of homicide and murder against vulnerable black bodies. Lying prostrate on the street as the case was with George Floyd. We just saw case. Was it yesterday in new? York City whether Choko was applied. Even though it's been outlawed so one figures that it's not simply about the reformation of police departments. It's about a culture. It's not a policy. It's not community policing which is critical that suggests that there should be a a relationship for between law, enforcement and communities. It's not simply about how we can rethink Unconscious bias police, we have to remove them as marauding occupying.

I kind of wonder whether this time it sticks. I want to start by sharing this image that I saw on twitter the other day, and it's this young woman who's holding a sign that says George Floyd isn't a wakeup call. The same alarm has been ringing since sixteen nineteen y'all just kit. Keep hitting snooze. There's no question that they are two different universes of perception rotating around different axes of facts, truths and insight. On the one hand is African.

"Analysts professor and bestselling author Michael. Eric Dyson just wrote his twenty. First Book Wow about a man he says says is shaping our current history as much as president trump. Please welcome the author of Jay Z made in America. Michael Eric Dyson in today's right. I want to ask you a little bit about you. Know the fact that he dropped out of the race and now you have all these white people at the top. What do you think yeah? That's really an exception Well well there was You know hope that she would be in the top tier. There's no question I mean. Look she's an enormously talented woman. You all have had a tremendous conversation about the various issues. you have to have Moxie you have to have but you gotta be able to get out there and do your thing. She was able to to do that but I think that the fact that she was judged in a different way we can say you talked about Aiming closure out here the prosecutor as well they came at Kamla a pretty hard and I think well I think the depressed did I think the media did I think critics within the party. Did I think people do and some black people demanding ending of common-law would they'd wouldn't demand of other people must hand. It was right or wrong. I'm just saying that's the facts and I'm GonNa tell you something announced interesting Kamla and cory booker have had a hard time with black people people. Because of delayed response of grief among some African American people love Obama as a human being but his policies. They're questioning now in terms of their efficacy Z.. And his approach because if anything they can't work well demeaning people they did not help black people and the fact is whatever you say about Donald Trump. This is what he shows you race will be spoken about either. You'll take the bully pulpit in you do it or you. Like Obama have loathing disregard for it. Can you lay back. The vacuum is filled. Donald Trump has showed you. You've got to seize. It sees the bull by the horns so I think there's a delayed response that that could happen and again thank with commonly and Corey who are extraordinary people They look a little bit like would he looked and therefore we want somebody a bit more vocal and bit more vigorous. Although it's impossible impossible as a black woman you got the double burden on the one hand the judge that prison and on the other hand you're being demanded to act in a way that gender so then explain explain Biden's popularity.

Scott and now her ninety three a year old grandma is weighing in saying young people. Today think they can live together and have kids without marriage. It doesn't work does it. Work Works for some people. It does work it does. I grew up actually B- traditional and religious in large part. I agree with what she's saying but my sister of of all people she had a baby. got pregnant two months after or dating some somebody and no one knew that that was going to happen. She debuted. It wasn't easy but they've got married. They've been happily married for years. Now they have a second beautiful baby and they are far happier than many married couples. That did it the perfect way so I look yeah. That's great advice if you can do it the right way shore. But that doesn't work for everybody and my my sister found her soul mate and she did it in an unconventional way and I do not have a problem with that in the slightest lightest. I'm just glad she's happy. But See. I think. The operative fact in fact pattern. Your sister's life is that they ultimately we got married and then built their family. I just think that the grandmother's advice is such such terrible advice. You have a child and then you try to live together and kind of play house and then you know there's no real commitment there and he's a millionaire economic break up. It's an economic problem. Let's say you're with the guy and you have the baby and you have a relationship and your home with the kids and you give up your career. Maybe you don't go to work.

I didn't need. I didn't need to do it at that point. Yeah but I am a pragmatic person and that is the reason you get married. Not Because of some moral the question I just I don't know I think it's sort of foundational.

Today so the democratic playing field just lost another candidate Senator Kamala Kamala Harris announced. She's suspending her campaign. Here's what she said about it. It is with deep regret but also with deep gratitude that I am suspending our campaign today but I want to be clear with you. I am still very much in this fight and I will keep fighting every day for what this campaign has been in about justice for the people all the people so some people say she could never land on a consistent message that stuck with voters. He's what do you think went wrong here with her. She Lost Chimanimani. That was one of the things. She said that she wasn't to have enough money to stay in. You Bet as the engine campaign so if you don't have money you can't keep going but I think the the money part sort of a symptom of bigger problems. I knew it was dead in the water. When met resignation letter came out the New York? Times it apiece on her failing campaign and an aide Center resignation letter saying this is my third presidential campaign. I've never seen organization treated treated staff so poorly I think he treated her staff. Currently according to this a top aide that worked on her campaign that there were leadership problems. My biggest issue was sir. I didn't think that she connected to voters while she could have that moment. I brought this up that moment in the debate for she went after Joe Biden. She thought that was her big moment. And a lot of the media talked about about that as being a big moment for I thought that just totally fell flat and if anything it did the opposite of what. She was hoping it would eventually help her. I'm not surprised at all by this. Frankly if you're not in your home state you probably shouldn't be winning president. It didn't fall flat for me. I think she spoke to a lot of the issues. That matter to me I was disappointed. Actually that she dropped out and had to suspend her campaign. And I I think that The you know. There's no question that there were obviously sleep problems with her campaign obviously financial problems. But I don't think you can look at that without also looking at the fact that as a woman of color. She also faced unprecedented sexism compounded by racism as well as a female candidate of color. And I think it's just surprising that there are people that are still in the race facing issues that are still in the race because if you look at polling For example Amy Klobuchar. We had her on our show just this week. She's polling lower than Combo Harrah's and she's a former prosecutor. So how do you explain that. Why is he still there? And Communism it was nice I numbers though are trending upwards in Communism was trying to say actually if you look if you look at the polling I was everyday was done yesterday. Kamla had five percent of the vote and national poll. It put her in sixth place. Amy Klobuchar and Tulsi Gabbard two percent the poll whole head Andrew Young at four percent. Even today there was a poll that has her head Harris at six percent. She's been steady actually not trending downward the naming. And what does that does he finished speaking. But that's fine. Does she have less money than than accomplish. Forget it wouldn't. It does point out one point that against what you were making. This country voted in a block president for two terms. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote to say. This country has not proven the opposite of what you're saying I think is factually wrong. So when you when you look in the mirror a candidate you know what maybe it's me. Maybe I'm struggling to connect to the voters. Maybe I am not giving them what they want to hear. Well actually Lee Abbey. I think that there's there's just no question that we did have a black president twice and I think that's wonderful but I think the election of President President trump is may prove my point. It may prove my point because we're in a very divisive place and I think when you when you have a lot of trump is the the fact that trump is there could be a reaction to a black president. Yes I think. That's that's the point. I think that's farfetched. Really Really No. I think it comes back if you're on the democratic side. If you're running the president. I think you have one thing that you're supposed to do. That is convinced the voters to vote for you. That is what continues to I. I'm not sure has to do with point point sunny. All of the front runners have one thing in common. They are all white. Yeah so You you everybody says that you cannot get the Democratic nomination without Out The black vote. Yeah so what's going to happen to the Democrats now that we have a white faces up there. Well I think when you when you look behind the numbers for black voters one one of the things that that it is going on is that black voters. Think that there was a A. I don't want to speak for all black voters but looking at the statistics and looking at some of reporting black voters. Don't think that someone like Kamla. Harris had a good chance of electability had a good chance of winning. And I there are some some people New Orleans that are nodding and so the fact that there could be Joe Biden. There could be an Elizabeth Warren that there could be a Buddha judge. They think that that person is more electable optimal I saw. What do you think what I'm going to say is probably unpopular WHOA? I grew up on campaigns literally. Mother was pregnant with me at eighty four convention with Reagan and a lot of this has to do with ground game and she ran a really bad campaign. She started ended outcome. When I was talking about trending she opened up huge twenty thousand people at in her home state in her hometown? She did incredible in the first debate she had a lot aww trending upwards and then she really stumbled when it came to her messaging came to her record prosecutorial and when it came to her attack on Joe Biden and then she seemed to flounder in the moment in the debate where Tulsi Gabbard asked her about her record on people being put into jail for smoking marijuana and I thought she was a very formidable candidate by most political analysts. She was a front runner for a long. Yes it was really all's fair primary politics and I think what this showed to me. Is that we in. The media can talk about the identity politics all day long. But when it comes down to primary voters it's who resonates and I don't concede the fact that all black people are one monolithic unit. That vote one way Eh. Just isn't the fact black people. Carolina are GonNa vote differently than back black people in California and by the way white people women etc and. I think that's the problem in to me. She ran a campaign for the media and for twitter so much more than she ran a campaign of the base. And I do think going forward for whomever is chosen. I actually thought her getting out so early. The and doing it in a way that I thought was very classy with her video that she made. I actually think she's running for VP. Right now I.
