"We have a nonprofit organization me and canon's own started blexit. Why did we get out of there by the IRS? Lexie didn't raise and it's all public record.

Because they got none of the money. George Floyd family didn't get a dime from Black Lives Matter. But they don't get out of it.
Caller: Mitch McConnell Is Not a Campaigner but an Administrator
"Hi, Mike. Thank you. Going after McConnell, I believe, only plays into a Democrat party hand. So I'm not saying you personally, but I think that that's what's going on in the background here. Remember, if not from McConnell, Eric Garner would currently be on the Supreme Court of the United States, the payback. You mean Merrick Garland. But Joe, I appreciate that. I guess we could ignore it and hope it goes away. What do you think is motivating leader McConnell in failing to lead the Republican Party in this manner? He's more concerned with preserving the republic than winning elections. What does that mean? What preserving the republic, you think we're not going to preserve the republic if the Republicans take control of the Senate? What I'm saying is he's not much of a campaigner. He's clearly an administrator. And I would, I would suggest instead people contact people like the whip soon and McCarthy and personally, one of your other columnists. What an interesting take. He's

Why Does Gen Z Believe Leftist Garbage?
"Welcome back to one on one with me, Sebastian, and amala E. So, you are at the forefront. You are probably the newest national personality for this amazing institution that is pragya university. Will you tell us a little bit about first because you're in the trenches? Will you tell us why? Generates, what are you Generation Z, what are you? Yeah, I am. Okay. So why does Gen Z? Believe all this garbage. Break it down for us. Is it just the schools or tell us how they believed what you believed? I think it's a multitude of things. I think schooling is really important. I think that's a big part of it now, although it wasn't such a big part of it when I was younger, but the rise of CRT, critical race theory and DEI, diversity equity and inclusion is particularly putting young people at risk to believe this sort of ideology. But I think more so than that. It's social media and mainstream media. What they do is they pull these emotional stories. I'll talk about it in my case, things like tamir rice, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, the police brutality narrative. I was inundated with that narrative by mainstream media and by social media. And of course, you hear these harrowing stories of abuse. And so you'll like a post talking about how Michael Brown was shot and killed for being black and suddenly that's all you see on your social media feeds. And the big tech overlords are cognizant of that. They're pushing this sort of ideology to young people and everybody on their platforms. So I was getting it from social media. I was getting it from mainstream media. And then I had the brilliant combination of also getting it from my mother at home. And it didn't matter how successful I was as a young black female. I went through school. I was valedictorian of my high school. I worked a job after school. I started my own club at school. I got all these scholarships. I was inquired by Yale to go to Yale. And yet you would have asked me and I would have told you, I'm a press because I'm a black woman in America. And it's because these emotional stories that do not speak to a larger truth or a larger systemic pattern are so pervasive and they're able to cut through actual logic and reason when it comes to young

"With an exciting get lit with all of it. Book Club Preview. Our selection this month is the novel The nickel Boys By Colson Whitehead. Yesterday it was announced that Colson is the winner of the Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction. The novel already won a Pulitzer for his second First was for his novel, The Underground Railroad. Coulson started writing his 1st 1st novel, when he was at the Village voice and early on in his career. This is a true story. He worked with my best friend David, who was a little bit senior to Coulson. Anyway. One day David told me. You know, there's this kid Coulson. He can really write. It turned out to be very, very true. In his newest novel, the Nickel Boys, Coulson tackles a bone chilling and little known episode in American history. Nickle Boys opens in 19 sixties Tallahassee Our protagonist is a black teenage boy named Elwood. Elwood has college aspirations and hero worships Dr Martin Luther King Jr He's convinced that if he can just quote, act right and protest peacefully, the world could open up for him and the black community. Elwood's optimism is punctured after he's wrongfully convicted of stealing a car and sent to the Nickel Academy, a segregated juvenile reform school where manicured lawns and red brick buildings Mass. The horrific physical and sexual abuse happening inside. Nickle Academy is based on a real place the Dozer School for Boys, which operated in Florida for 111 years, and was a A cesspool of violence, abuse and even murder. Nickle boys is chilling and heartbreaking. It's an exploration of friendship abuse, the lingering effects of trauma and the way we can be resilient. Residents can download a free copy of the book. Now, thanks to our friends in the New York Public Library to find out how to do that head to wnyc dot org's slash, get lit and then follows on instagram at all of it. W Nice to keep up with the discussions happening about the book there and then one more thing. Market calendars for I get late with all of it. The club event on July 29th at 7 p.m. We'll be joined in conversation with Coulson and a special musical guest to be announced. But now for a little preview, I'm joined now by Colson Whitehead. Hi, Coulson. Hey, How do you do? How you doing? I remember David Kim talking value. So today I was hoping you might read the first paragraph of your novel to set the scene for our listeners. Certainly. Even in death. The boys were trouble. Secret graveyard lay on the north side of the nickel campus in Apache Acre of wild grass between the old work barn on the school dump. The fields have been a grazing pasture when the school operated a dairy selling milk the local customers one of the state of Florida schemes to really believe the taxpayer burden of the boy's upkeep. The developers of the office park at earmarked the field for a lunch plaza with four water future is in a concrete bandstand for the occasional event. Discovery of the bodies was an expensive complication for the real estate company awaiting the all clear from the environmental study and for the state's attorney who had recently closed investigation into the abuse stories. Now they had to start a new inquiry established the identities of the deceased and the manner of death. And there's no telling when the whole damn place could be raised, cleared and neatly erased from history. Which everyone agreed was long overdue. Those Colson Whitehead reading from the nickel boys. So as I mentioned the novels based on this true story of the Dozer School for Boys in Florida, and we asked an instagram book club members if they never heard of the story or the school before picking up your novel, and 78% said they had not. When did you first hear of the story? And what about it sparked your imagination as an author. Yeah. You know, I have uncovered a lot in Northern Florida Papers. The town where the does your school is a little bit north of Tallahassee, but only, you know, Periodically erupts into a national media sphere. So in 2014 the school closed down and they were excavating the property and found the unmarked graves. Try identify them, and it was a one day story. But it stayed with me. It was the summer of 2014 and, uh, they're the protests in Ferguson. Eric Garner was killed and it seemed that way. You know, a lot of, uh, white law enforcement always gets off the hook when they when they kill a black, unarmed black person. And the village school. There were no kids were, um, had their lives mangled by the staff, and the staff was never held accountable. They worked at the place for 50 60 years retire got their pensions. What awards for citizenship. And so I think that sort of power powerlessness. I felt that summer between Ferguson and then the story of those you're maybe think about what kind of novel could get out of the school. You're a born and bred New Yorker. So as you start to do research, not only about the school but about this part of Florida and the history of black people in this part of Florida. What did you learn that you that you never knew? Well, I think you know. A lot about history and a bit about Jim Crow. But I forgot how insane from the laws were. Of course you know segregation. We know about lynching and people getting off the hook for mentioning, But there are things like bumptious contact, which was a long Florida that you had to get out of the way of a white person on the street. And if you didn't you could be fined or put in jail. And so there are these very large and really ways that Black lives were circumscribed in the south, and then also a host of tiny, tiny laws, which, um, to compound the daily humiliations and keep you in check. Protagonist is sent to nickel academies names, Elwood. What characteristic? Did you know you wanted the protagonist of the nickel boys, tohave. I knew that. I used to be a good kid. Andi. No, It's fucked with the wrong person and get sent there, so he's sort of a stand in for all the young people of color who You get stopped by the police and have the counter spent out into something lethal. You know if you left the house five minutes earlier or five minutes later, your life would have been So I knew that he was a good step on. You know you try toe. Add more details. I knew that he was 16 and 63 Energized by the civil rights movement led me to Martin Luther King, in which Feed his character and feed the themes of the book. So you know you make a one choice on DH. Everything sort of comes out of that. A goody goody kid like Elwood calls out for his opposite number. Turner Pessimistic of survivalist And doesn't believe in social order that could be changed. Why is he named Elwood? I know I was casting about for old school names, old school blackness. So Lila Mae and the intuition ist and court sounded right when I was looking for The name of the main character in underground on Elwood stuck with me. Turner. Took a while, but somebody had heard me talking radio, did my genealogy charts and face my family back, Tio. Georgia in Barbados, and I have an answer. So I lashed onto that. That's funny. It's a family name on my side, too..
Technology Helps Train Police Officers
"Around the country for the past few weeks, protests have erupted over the killing of George Floyd. The arrests kindle renewed outrage over the deaths of black Americans like Brianna Taylor Eric Garner Michael Brown among many others and the mistreatment of people of Color by police. The protests have also sparked and national reckoning for many police departments. They've been trying to reduce the use of lethal force and improve accountability among other things through training. From The Wall Street Journal this is the future of everything I'm Janet Baben. Today on the show we'll consider the future of police training with virtual reality technology. What's most powerful about the are? You're able to create worlds and circumstances and experiences that you wouldn't be able to create in the real world that can help you shift your perspective, which is really different than a training. We'll speak with researchers about how the brain perceives are and whether it can address bias. Notwithstanding or conscious beliefs or conscious convictions, and we'll talk about why a future developments in Vr police training may fall short. Tell me why you shot. Shot because he was within that zone, you know I felt there was leased departments have long used actors playing and instructional videos to train officers to deal with real life scenarios, but this can be. Pricey and not very realistic. People who make and sell virtual reality say the technology can improve training. If you play video games. You're probably familiar with VR. It's been around for a while, but we asked Wall Street Journal attack video game reporter Sara Needham, in to explain virtual reality is all encompassing. It's a matter of hardware so when you put on APR headset. Everything you see up down left right turnaround. Everything is in there virtual world one hundred percent. You cannot see anything else, so you feel very immersed the main difference between VR other video simulations you can actually interact with this computer generated three D world. It's so. That Sarah says you can get sucked in and lose yourself. I experienced this myself. playing a racing game where I was sitting down very low, and we felt like a cockpit of a vehicle, and as we went around the turns, I literally felt like we were going to crash into the wall, because I wasn't driving very well, and it scared me. For Police. It's not about the thrill or fear of race track. It's about learning how to lean into the fear and still be able to deal with it calmly. If you feel like you've done something before been in a situation before. You're better at knowing how to react. You can practice your actions in these potentially life, threatening situations and hopefully resolve altercations peacefully. We'll talk more about this in just a bit. It's one of the reasons that some of the biggest law enforcement groups in the country like the Los Angeles. Police Department are turning to Vr. The LAPD has a history connected to police, misconduct and misuse force. In Nineteen ninety-one. Were caught on tape brutally beating motorist Rodney. King a black, man.

A Decade Of Watching Black People Die
"Family of Kentucky Woman, shot and killed by police is demanding answers. The former, his son both white are accused of killing the unarmed black man again with the breaking news for Minneapolis violent protests raged for a second straight night, following the death of George Floyd after being arrested by a Minneapolis police officer last night, protesters turned their attention to the city's. The last few weeks have been filled with devastating news stories about police killing black people. And what is sick is that these stories have become the kind of news that we in the business call evergreen their stories that are always relevant and always in season, these calamities are so familiar. This point they're details have begun to echo each other July. Twenty fourteen, a cell phone video captured some of Eric Garner's final words as New York City Police officers sat on his head and pinned him to the ground on a city sidewalk. I can't breathe. Or May twenty fifth of this year those same words were spoken by George Floyd. Just before he died, he pleaded for release, as an officer kneeled on his neck in pins of the ground on a Minneapolis City Street, so we're at the point with verbiage, people used to plead for their lives can be re purposed as shorthand for completely different stories and part of our job here coast, which is to conceptualize and make sense of news like this. But genus is hard to come up with something new to say you know things we haven't already said or things we have already recorded protesters saying when we were both in Ferguson in August of twenty fourteen after Michael. Brown was killed by the police or when we were in Baltimore after Freddie Gray's death. I spent the day with junior. High school kids in West. Baltimore where Freddie Gray was from on the first day. Let kids return to school after all the protests and I will never forget the eighth grade boy who raised his hand to ask. Why have white people been killing us in slavery and they're still killing us. He said that on Wednesday April Twenty Ninth Twenty fifteen.

Jamile Smith Senior Writer for Rolling Stone magazine. In when I was at the new republic. wrote an article entitled. What does seeing black men die? Do for you. It was published on April Thirteenth Two Thousand Fifteen. We get to see black men tortured or killed by police a lot more often these days. So, it's worth recalling why a generation ago. It mattered so much to see what happened to Rodney King. Now the story that might never have surfaced if someone hadn't picked up his home video camera. We've all seen. We have certainly seen the black and white photographs and videos depicting police abuse of African Americans. And we'd seen the grainy images of lynchings passed. But the conventional ignorance was that this wasn't the America. We lived in now. Officers beating a man they had just pulled over. This was the early nineties after all. This was in America that viewed law enforcement in the context of the popular reality, show cops, and were Morton Downey Junior tabloid television style made uncensored aggression a form of entertainment. But when George Holidays video surface chuck him with batons of between fifty three and fifty six times signal to a lot of citizens, just how bad police violence visited upon marginalized communities, actually was six kicks and one officer one kick people either didn't know what was happening. or willfully ignorant of it. They needed to wake up. Say The Los. Angeles Police Department has a history of brutality and misconduct that goes back a quarter of a century day. We are not sure that the police is there to protect us. The fear of becoming the next Rodney King is still here. But what has changed is how often we are viewing that fear being realized. Jamal goes on to write that the ubiquity of cell phone cameras and dashboard cameras means this uncensored horror has become available on demand. He says he watched twenty two year old Oscar grant get shot and killed by a police officer on Youtube before it made it to broadcast news.

Top 5 Movies That Educated Us About Racism
"Locum to film spotting on May Twenty Fifth in Minneapolis George Floyd. A black man was killed when a white police officer kept his knee on Floyd's neck for over eight minutes. As we've all seen protests broke out in the twin cities the next day, and then in cities across the country in the days of the followed as we record this Adam, it's more than a week after they started and the protests do continue, and all of this during a pandemic, that has killed over one hundred thousand Americans a disproportionate number of whom are people of Color. Color. Josh, of course we're so privileged in so many ways, but also in having this platform that is film spotting and to be honest with everyone. We weren't sure the best way to use it this week. One thing we knew we could do was share with our listeners the ways they could support the protesters, and we will put a link to some of those resources in the notes for this show over at film spotting dot net. Ultimately we settled on this top five top five movies that educated us about racism and I think listeners at casting. A good perspective on why this may be a fruitful topic. He says films can teach us so much. The introspection I've gained in life through films is incalculable. I grew up in a small rural town films Roth in my only glimpse into a larger world outside of the news empathy, compassion and understanding can all be gained if you look at movies as an expression and take the time to consider the film's point of view and Zach did share some of the titles that have had the biggest impact on him I think you're gonNA. Hear all if not most of them come up over the course of this show Zach continues in all honesty I don't think I have grasped the scope of. Of Institutional. Racism in the systems that support until I watched the George. Floyd video the Eric Garner Video Floyd Video. These are wrenching documentaries of another type. They are unvarnished documents of the cause of fear, and so many of our communities like other powerful films. They can't be turned away from, nor should they be thank Zach I. I think that's that's well said and yeah. Just back to what you're saying at the top atom about trying to figure out what the show should look like this week I I think we've both been trying to do a lot of listening this week. More listening than speaking and in doing that I've heard people of color just encourage others to amplify black voices so. I think that's kind of one of the motivations behind this list, for us, obviously I'm going to be doing talking on this show as usual, but but what I hope to do is turn the focus on these great films, and the necessary voices behind them, so speaking to email you know to my shame I've only had two real ways into the African American experience in my life, I would say one of those is my church tradition. It's absolutely a white church tradition for sure, but it has included partnerships with black churches. That's helped me understand what Christianity looks like for folks with different experiences than minds, so that's one avenue. Another avenue has been. In an avenue into the black experience has been. Are you know it's been books? It's been music. It's been TV, and of course it's mostly been movies, so this list is a reflection of where things stand now. It's not a comprehensive list. I don't pretend that my education on this is even near complete. So that means this time. If we get emails from listeners saying, how could you forget this or you include this rat rather than kind of Bristle? I'm going to be grateful because they'll be providing ways for that education to continue so so that's kind of where I'm at with this list right now. The best thing I think we can do is listen and learn I've heard that. This past week as well we don't always as white people have to feel compelled to comment or to interject ourselves into someone else's struggle, and that raises the question then. Should we do a show at all right now? At the same time you understand that to be silent seems to be complicit, and then if you decide to do a show, you have to consider what the substance of it is, and certainly I think I speak for both of us when I say that our objective is not to try to tell anyone that these are the five movies that define your experience.

Our Nation is Burning
"My name is Jamie and I'm host. And I'm here with my co-host Ryan. Say Hello to our audience Ryan Lou everybody. I can't say the way ANJELICA, says it, but hey I'm trying to master too, and it just didn't work. You know just. A So this episode is a little different. It's not going to be as peppy as are other episodes where we talk about. Geeky pop culture staff. 'cause we hear black girl nerds always liked to talk about things that are relevant in the news, and really that's relevant in popular culture and right now it's very relevant is what's happening in America, and that's these recent protests that. are happening really all over the nation. It started in Minnesota surrounding the events that happen to Oh my goodness George Floyd. Yeah a lot of names. Yes, a just like pollen on twitter. It's gotta get straight yeah. Thank you, thank you for for helping me with that. One surrounding the events of the death of George Floyd and then these protests have expanded to several cities donation in New York. people have gone to our nation's capital in DC. really going straight to the White House quite frankly Los Angeles. Atlanta, which we'll talk about that. CNN was vandalized on national television storming the front doors of of that building, so it's been a very Very interesting weekend. To put it mildly We were here to really to talk about that to unpack it to also unpacked the history of why this all occurred. Because even though a lot of people are talking about words like riots and looting and wives, all of these things happening, or you know kind of talking about the actions behind. These events were not really talking about why people feel the need to do what they're doing. And again it has to do with the deaths of people like George Floyd also a Aubrey Brown. Wailer and and so many people even before them which unfortunately? Oh my God. You can't even name them all I. Mean it goes back to names like Eric Garner, Freddie Gray. Allow. It's just like people you don't even. You. Would that happen because you know, there's just certain ones. Unfortunately that are going to get the media attention, but there's just so many like the scare me. I was like I have to back away from Google for minute 'cause there's this is such a long Liz. It's such a long list. Exactly I mean and again think about the names of people even before social media yet where? The benefit of twitter. They didn't have the benefit of facebook to get the amplification or even to get there. I mean God to be able to have their execution filmed on a camera phone to to get their story out there No, no, you know, they will never get to hear about their stories. But there there's certainly a longlist of black men and women and children children yet. Who who have. been killed You know by hit by gunfire through state-sanctioned. Murders. By police officers, so yeah, we're. We're going to talk about that in this episode. It's a you know. Trigger warning for anybody WHO's been a victim of. Gun Violence Um who've been a victim of police brutality This is going to be a pretty heavy episode. We will try to Kinda. Talk about some moments of levity with. The F. of of twitter, and some of the crazy things that celebrities who had said you know to kind of balance things out, but also we really do want to respect the seriousness of this conversation, so I just want to give that trigger warning before we start. So let's dive into this Joey Yeah. Let's do it. So. Where do we even begin with this conversation? I just go with like how are feeling like so what like you know waking up this warning like the past week? Just like because I know a lot of people are I. Guess they're doing it by posting. You know whatever randomly comes with him on twitter and Instagram 'cause you know with some of US still at Kinda streak. Stay at home orders. Sometimes. You can't really go where you WANNA go or get out a little bit. So that's kind of how there vending so just like I. Guess just a simple. How you filling in just your your thoughts off the top about how you've been dealing with it. So the way I'm dealing with it as I'm avoiding emerging myself too deeply into social media, which for a while now I would say probably for the last couple of years to be quite honest with you I've not gotten to connected with social media and. you know especially now with what's going on because when I look at my time line whether it's twitter or facebook. Yeah, everything talking about this not look yeah. I've not looked at the full video. I felt like I had to look at it for four and a half hours, and it was the most miserable day. Ever I might not look your. Do not yeah, that's right because you work in television, so I didn't like just look away from it. And I was just like and I, and I repeatedly was dislike. Why are we continue to do this? You know you WANNA. Get the message out there, but I guess for me the thing where it's. Is it necessary to keep showing you know certain parts over and over again
