The Return of Evictions in the U.S.

"The first time since march twenty twenty most american renters can be evicted with the federal eviction ban. now over in the last few state protections set to end this month. It's really hard to know how many people this could affect. But the census bureau estimates four point seven million adults live in households where eviction is at least somewhat likely in the next two months meanwhile goldman sachs estimates seven hundred and fifty thousand households could face eviction by the end of the year actresses chief financial correspondent felix. Salmon is with me for more hi felix. i hope so. We talked on the show a few months ago about how maybe fewer americans than many had thought would actually lose their this year. Has that assessment changed. Yes the supreme court case. I think came as a bit of a surprise. They basically said the. Cdc is not allowed to continue this eviction moratorium that they had and so now. That is no eviction. Mars horror this still illegal process. Any landlord has to go through in order to evict you and states have slow processes. The courts overwhelmed. It'll still take a while before people start getting evicted but it is now legally possible in the way that it wasn't just a week ago what government protections do still exist for people in more precarious housing situations right now. So it's changing rapidly. You know the new york state legislature is coming back to try and pas new rules extending protections now the federal protections on there anymore. I think other states are going to do similar things. I think it is just going to be much more case by case than it used to be. It used to be like this big federal blanket ban. And now it's just gonna be. You're going to have to talk to your lawyers. Who can have to also really work hard to try and work out whether you can access some of the federal funds which have been impact for helping out rentis declare. Easy thing is.

This year their performances in their stories are worth knowing and were celebrating like sydney mclaughlin after winning the gold in the four hundred meter hurdles last week. She said this what i have in christ is far greater than what i have or don't have in life. And she went on to say. I pray that my journey may be a clear depiction of submission and obedience to god.

Us woman to win the event since nineteen sixty eight and in an interview said this as a follower of christ our main goal is to live in the image of jesus in order to connect to god and then there's wrestler tamra a stock the first african american woman to win gold for the us in wrestling. Her interview after the olympics will bring a smile to the face of any american and her testimony of god's faithfulness just put it all in perspective back before the olympic. She told faith wire this. It's by the grace of god. I'm even able to move my feet. So i just leave it in his hands and i pray that all the practice my coaches put me through pays off and every single time it does mensa stock also noted that her dad well he would have been the loudest one in the room but tragically. He died in a car crash. After one of tamara's wrestling meets back in high school and he also likely would have approved of the way. His daughter responded after she won. Gold she said in an interview. That's now gone viral quote. I love representing the us. I love living here. i love it. And i'm so happy. I get to represent the usa another olympian who set a record despite incredible challenges. Four hundred meter sprinter allyson felix in tokyo.

I put in like eight years of work in the last two years. All right fine you'll remember. We've made memories. you watch that. Show that once. The dogs patrolled house. Great off of it all right. Well i'll wrap it up just by quoting. U2 yourself one more time. because i i really like this. I was just growing your twitter a second before he started dying. And you said that someone said to you that they gave you a compliment that you're always grinding and always working on something new and that that made you a little emotional weight wedges.

It's obvious you love the simpsons. But you've leaned into it. Almost as i'm hesitant to use the word branding but you know you kind of incorporated it into your aesthetic in all these ways that against you very authentic and genuine in ways. I don't know not everyone. Does it that cleanly you know what i mean. Yeah it definitely wasn't this contrived like game plan. It was kind of like. I think kinda low key obviously started with my twitch And i think it low key kind of started with just like having to come up with emotes customer boats and i was like just screwing around some simpson's ones i did and then from there. Maybe i'll make the layout look kind of simpson's e too and then that like go with the modes and then people started coming on. Nice goo strong simpson's vitamin here. I like so then. I was kinda like yes. The and then and now like the twitch like we have called the twitch like crew like the board gang. I just saw someone in the chech- shouting out the king. It's been really fun. And i think it's just like that's the thing it's like. I think like trying to come up with these things. Tend to to you. That's how he's like people. Come up with your brand. And it's like i i don't know i feel kind of stumble hunt though. Try because again. This goes back to the things we've already said if you try. If that's your intention is like now. I will invent my brand. That's never going to work. You know it's like you know when people like have a really contrived like what do i call my. Yeah oh my god. Generally put their name summer now with it. Exactly what's up. Cartel gig young bulich scenes or solution. That's actually pretty good. Wanna use that. You can use that snake. It makes no sense okay. Yeah i'll use. That'd be great last. Like that was my thing i was like men people like. I think some people come on this team. They're like oh it's way feels feels cartel sick like i don't even know what's happening here for the simpsons. Yeah i like that. I don't know kind of humor too. I'm just kind of like. I don't know yeah. Haven't i've been doing this like i've been making. Music is two thousand seven. I'm like i don't want him no. I'm just having fun stuff. And i was like we'll just do simpson's till we get sued. Maybe that'll be good. Promo for the st hundred percent. And you're you're part of a long line of beautiful lineage of like bootlegs simpson's share. Yeah i love the lexus. In so much blake simpson's Art show in vancouver one time and it was like one of my favorite night. That sounds all the rate dealer you ever talked to nick. Catch dubs about that. He's big into bootleg simpson's like memorabilia. No i haven't. But i feel like i've seen it seep through. 'cause he was doing all the fools stuff my yes still is. Yeah i i feel like i saw it seep through some of their art sometimes yes one hundred percents them up. A photo of the phone be likes to love that. But okay so a couple more things and by the way for anybody in the chat if you wanna if you wanna ask a question we'll try to answer a couple of questions here before felix gets outta here but you can submit them. There's a link to do that but for for felix my friend what i wanna ask you. This is sort of back to more more advice. Because we gave some advice last time to up and coming producers and i wanted to do a little bit more of it because i think you're really good at dispensing these little nuggets and one thing i wanted to talk to you about and to bring it back to the new album. Expensive sounds for nice people out right now. Hey man gotta do so you worry with tons of vocalists and we talked about that process and you talked about how you kind of have these notes on your phone of maybe themes you wanna talk about. I know you're involved with the lyric writing process. And i think working with vocalists from a producer angle is kind of a black hole to a lot of people and i think a lot of people don't know what's how. How do you find a vocalist to work with. What is the proper way to approach somebody. What's productive way to work with vocalist. And have it. Have it feel like a really fruitful collaboration. And i think you are. Well positioned to dispense wisdom on this. Because you've been doing it for for a while. yeah i'll do my best. I definitely like Sound like there's clear away. I don't think i i think there's a multitude of ways to go about it so just to get out of the way mealy like obviously i have a publisher now so they're constantly connected with writers and stuff if i want to do that. But that's a great thing and that's i only have that had that recently. Yeah that's some of it and but that being said like a lot of my sessions don't go through it's just sorta like met More organically and that would come to. I mean sometimes. It's really as simple as i will. Just send them a message. That will be like if i like a song that they put out and you know. Sometimes i think if you're an artist and you're just starting which i'm probably speaking to more here is finding people that are like more on your level and kind of like working your way up a little bit or but also like finding this the people that you like legitimate like psalm by and then just messaging them and be like. Hey i heard your song today. And i thought was really good and if they like.

"Sexiest sounds like fucking such a bad habit on this podcast starting sentences like as artists. I'm trying to grow but it's also like yeah you like facility but yeah like you know with restrictions you know it's like it's kinda cool to see who Who adapts. I guess so and i you know the live streaming thing was fucking weird kind of but like then it became this thing where some people do some really cool shit already. That never would happened. And maybe you know because of it. You know i i was thinking like maybe now. We have all this sort of infrastructure set up for festivals and stuff that exists because of the pandemic so that people can enjoy these things more if they weren't aspel. Yeah and. I think that we definitely is a net positive. You're gonna keep streaming. I'm gonna keep doing it for now i i. I think it would come down to whether or not Like see how the tour scheduled unfolds. Yeah but i don't you know it's all i have my first show on friday and i'm like yes now i could finally stop streaming. I don't feel that way about it. I kind of more so feel. Yeah i'm just gonna do it till it stops being fun. Yeah well that's not even or just kinda like sometimes things run their course. Of course i that's like the theme of this whole conversation right like do do what you think is fun at the time. Do what you think is a cool idea at the time and there doesn't really have to be more thought to it than that total. Yeah and also like weirdly like a colonel keeping like the sharpest. I've ever been at dj. Because of that. yeah. I believe i. I never like never really practiced that much. And you didn't come into this as a dj. I right totally. Yeah and it's like you know. Like i feel like dj's say they like practice or whatever but like real like really. How you like hockey hockey practice. So i didn't really think of it that way when i was doing like i was practicing but then like you know i'm jane. I'm talking on the mike trying to keep the chat vibe in or like. Yeah it's a whole songs. I'm playing. I'm thinking about the next song. Getting drunk. sometimes. Yes absolutely mad. Am i right to this is this is kind of the vibe. I got. But i want to ask you if i'm actually right that maybe another silver lining of quarantine locally was that i started to see just through people posting. It seemed like there was a little scene of deejays and producers in nbc. Like in the vancouver area that banded together a little bit while you guys were all stuck there. Yeah there was definitely a little bit of some like community there. I definitely i'm still carrying like lone wolf in a weird way But definitely like the stall jack. She came on my stream lot. Love her she's actually opening my show inside shout out to hershey. I had around this podcast to men. She's great he's the basque. She's one of those people were. I'm like you're gonna be fine because you fucking grind like like that's it. I'm like you already have things figured out that that takes everyone forever to figure out. Yeah absolutely Yeah there's like the no saying skies who i did a with with my other project gloss pedals and then the guy battles johnny good friends. So we were doing our stream for a while I did some writing sessions and with whipped cream. Who hadn't really worked with. Yeah i i wanted to ask you about that. Because i mean she's been on this show and and also she. I consider a friend. Hopefully she considers the of. But i i really like her but you guys in the studio together was interesting to me. Yeah and i don't know the thing we did will will come out. We'll see it's like it's music who knows cut in three years on but yeah it was just kind of like i think she was. Just you know wanted to work on new stuff and was just trying to get some other people who are like a range of styles in the studio so they just reached out and had me come through one day and we'd met at a festival so he'd hung out a few times knowing that would never work together. But she's a grinder man like. Yeah her work ethic is crazy crazy. Yeah like all i care about. It's like people that are in it for the reason so stodgy whipped cream kind of percent. Both of you for good reason. You're gonna i know you're going to be good and kill it. One thousand percent. They already are killing it. Absolutely but Yeah they're going to be fine like you said When you mentioned glass pedals which is your your side project as well We talked about the formation of that project. A bit on the last podcast. Which by the way if you haven't listened to the last gaz with felix cartel whoever's listening to this now you gotta go you gotta go run that because that's the that's the origin story. That's the back story. We get into a latte there but to talk about glass pedals. Now what's going on with glass battles where you guys at is. How are you feeling about the project. I mean you've been dropping a bunch of singles here and there. Yeah still good with it. It's kind of like my Like my my my my. When i don't feel like working on something more melodic i'm just gonna make a banger today. That's kind of like glass. Puddles was for me. Yeah So in a weird way i feel like i'm making like early. Feels cartel records again. So i kind of miss that a little bit But produce way more in like a house here way i kind of house techno with some maybe some early electro influences but that's such a way to reconnect with what we were talking about that nostalgic energy that excitement of when you first did it right like i think. That's that's like a cheat code almost to that. That's what so many of us are always chasing that energy of when you first got into a.

"I was hoping you do. So then i would know. Sign up from a master course and i'll tell you nine dollars a day. No i guess you know over time. Like i've sort of learned now that i write with people that if you come in with like a fully fleshed out instrumental. I usually find that to be counterintuitive to making something. Because i don't think people want to be like to informed off the bat so it's like it's like so much suggestion if you have like everything already done and it feels like now. You're like writing in a box so for me. It's more like. I'll just come in with a couple of progressions. But i like all the ones that like. I'll make five or six. Maybe four or five. That i like and then i'll be like play them through and if someone's like oh that one's cool i'm like cool. I already know that. I like because i only brought ones that i like. And then we'll just kind of you know maybe rift some like melody ideas like that and then the biggest change in my production i would say was rather than just like. I don't know like i felt like. There was some disconnect sometimes when i listen to a lot of electronic music where it was like this vocal that tells us beautiful story and like drop comes out of nowhere i was like. Oh yeah i feel like a remix sometimes to me which totally fine like. Maybe that'd be good edit for show. But but i was kind of like i really honestly like. I felt really fortunate to work with vocalist. That i thought were like way out of my league. Sometimes so in my head. I was like really. I really wanted to do their vocal justice and like amplify the theme of what they're saying how they're saying it and then also showcase what i can do but like in a way that's not just like overstepping so i really like when i think of a club. I'm like literally like. How do i make this split down the middle felix club so it feels like both people were part of this. Not just like someone hopped on my freaking. Edm beat that says four. Three two one for the job emila unless it's a symbol putting your hands up then then made it work then. Maybe that's all right. I mean it's really interesting to hear that man d you when you're starting a songwriting chord progressions that kind of thing. Are you the start of a song. Are you hoping for all your songs to be ca- labs like are you always writing thinking about you know like presenting it to someone else getting somebody else's input not everything like i definitely have my like. That's like one day of like that's one style of day rating and then i haven't the other day where i'm just like kind of call it like more like exploratory mode where you know i might like weird I might hear like an old house sung lilac. I might hear like a rufus to soul like instrumental track. That i like am. I hear like odessa halftime. Beat that. I like just things that inspire like tourist or something. Some weird like electronica. Don't here like in my seen that often. And sometimes days where i'm like i try maybe like do something in this state and then i'll just go around with it and you know on the album. I don't not every song has a feature. They most most of them do. But there's a few on there and those were like my exploratory vibes and yeah yeah it's it's it's both like i still want to be able to myself as a producer not like purely rely on my colleagues to so for me. It's a marriage of those two. Yeah no that makes sense. I i really like going up on the album. Which is one of those solo tracks and yeah it's interesting now to hear you say that's like okay. That's that's you like. Try something than having fun and go. Yeah that's it makes makes a lotta sense man. I mean there's so. I'm trying to think as i was listening to the album. There's like some common. I mean there's lyrically common themes of course but Musically as well. I feel like and correct me if you disagree with the statement but i feel like it's closer to a signature sound quote unquote than i've ever heard from you before. Like i feel like you've you've dialed it in somehow or like just gotten closer to some kind of like cohesive stamp. Yeah thank you very. Yeah i think. I definitely have maybe not my like. I guess like my tropes a little bit to fall back on i feel like i have sort of my toolkit a little bit more figure it out. Maybe and i definitely you know. I definitely noticed this when i listened to a lot of the thing is as for me. I cannot describe production in two stages of a career like the first part. The first half of your life is like how the fuck do i even make it. Sound like close to what i hear my head. And that's like the first ten years or whatever the hell is it could be longer could be shorter And that's frustrating by you. Get a of like random things that happened in. that's exciting. Because you like stumble upon something and then the second half is now okay pretty much can figure out what like if i have divided my head. I can pretty much get it on. Paper now. feels more like okay. Now what do i choose to express that idea uniquely and also to feel like me so like it comes. It becomes more like sound selection. So you know just like there's a lot of etiam that sounds like very like digital. Yeah like really crisp and like those people are arguably probably like probably were talented than because they're like getting in there you know. With scientific ezekiel and all that bullshit and kudos. Those guys but i like that doesn't interest me at all and like figuring that out that i like. It's not for me is like really helpful to me because then it helps me like inform. I sound like. I'm always trying to make things i was joking. I'm trying to fix things. Sound worse. Because i like. I like when things down a little more like organic so if piano. Mike how do i make this sound de tuned. A little bit and like it's underneath a blanket that is like being played out of the speaker that has also underneath the blanket. Does.

"You know new album. Drops from aband- i loved. I would absolutely go by the first day. Dropped listened to it front to back probably listened to nothing but that album over and over for like two weeks yes seattle. Yeah and i. And i absolutely loved that part of it but yeah these days man i dunno i. I'll still listen to an album. But it's i feel like i've been trained badly now. I don't seek it out as much as i used to now and especially in dance music. I don't know. I mean even like people. Don't send me albums people. Send me singles totally. Yeah and it yeah. It's not like I don't think every is like needs to make albums i've just like. That's what i like to do. And i'm a i'm not like i'm not like against curtis who just wanna do like the single like dj culture thing too. 'cause like i love that right at totally different way But yeah i actually feel like there is kind of shift with like some of the electronic artists. Like i know you think of like san jose low and stuff where i kind of feel like. It's these people that are taking the these kind of like band ideologies and then applying them to dance music and i like. I think that's really exciting. So i i completely completely the i mean it's so you and i were talking before we went live here that earlier today i was talking to busy p and we actually he and i talked about this idea a little bit because i was kind of just having a little fun but i i read this quote he said about how deejays aren't rockstars and then i kind of put it to him but he was partially responsible for deejays becoming rockstars through all of his work. And it's interesting. Because i think ben if deejays rockstars then i think what you're talking about is a logical next step right because it's there's like a weird disconnect where if you're a pure dj playing other people's music but you're being perceived like a rock star. There's like a logical inconsistency. With that where i think if you wanna keep growing as an artist if you wanna step further into like the role of rockstar. The role that kind of thing. I think you have to look to what did do what had bands do. You know what what did work for them. And i think that kinda like ties it back in logically. It makes it makes sense to people you know. Totally and yeah. It's funny that he agree with that. When you said that he was responsible for making deejays rockstars. Yeah a he agreed hundred percent and he kind of said that the beauty of it was that both ideas can exist simultaneously. That deejays aren't rockstars. And you shouldn't take yourself too seriously and you know you should basically be humble and have no ego about it but that if you do that and if you know you have good intentions and just good ideas. Then of course. Why shouldn't you have fun and take it to its. Its most extreme the furthest extent that you can you know. Yeah and i definitely i mean. Obviously he was involved with justice. Really heavily and you know. I would say what made them. Massive at that. Time was the fact that they just dropped this album. That was very cohesive very exciting from french tobacco and it kind of rocked electronic music in like a really new way that was it was super inspiring for me as an as someone who came from punk rock background to see that energy from my world being like applied to a dance floor and like bloom at bloom at nine and it was the catalyst for what made me like fall in love with electric music for sure. Yeah i completely agree man. I mean if you this is an open ended question and you don't even have to have an answer for it but if you think back to those early felix cartel is blog house days electro days where they really did sort of embodied that punk spirit in a lot of ways. Do you have any memories from those times that just you think about a lot. Maybe run in your head in the background. A lot for for any reason like it doesn't even have to be like a significant thing. Well i actually. I have a very good story that it goes in line with what you have been saying today already and it was third show ever. I had moved to glasgow for school. And i opened for justice and busy p. I just told busy. Peer this story like an hour ago. I remember because. I was like so nothing at that point but lake. They pay me. It's like a troll tack heinekens. My response was i get to go to the justice show for free. Y- thousand socal like blew my mind and Yeah it was just like it's felt like shows. It didn't feel like i feel like i. That was the other thing makes like maybe we touch on this last name but they slipped but clubbed ecosystem on its head a little bit where you know like there's dress code and all this weird shit at clubs when when i was going so Just kind of felt like you could just go. If you like the music and at that in that sense it felt more like a show got that they were like not letting people in the clubs but there is like all these kinda like hoity-toity rules. I think before that era you know going to a club. It was a very specific subsection of people. You know it was like it was not maybe that diverse in any number of ways. And i think that to me was something that the electro era in the blog house aaron in mid to late twenty tens to thousands era did was all of a sudden people. Were getting together again from all different walks of life. Everybody dancing together you know. Different colors creeds sexualities. All that in a way that we had seen since you know for at least ten years before that totally data was definitely it was a rejuvenated rejuvenation to the scene. That was Felt very necessary and timely. Yeah i agree man. I mean how are you thinking about going back to live shows. Now you know as we're starting to open up a little bit. I know the. Us is a little ahead of Candidate at the moment. But you know we're all trying to trying to get there like has anything changed in your mind about the way you want to present your music going forward. Obviously i'm sure you know you're thinking about album tour all that kind of stuff. Yeah i think Actually have a show on friday which is crazy immune raising. Yeah calgary is like wide opens july first. So that sounds like calgary or it of canada. I guess yes calgary. Wrong that calgary is kind of like the south like the the us south of the canadian texas. Because it's like oil country and stuff. So i always got those vibes and they. It's the thing. I'm playing his calgary stampede. Which is like they're weird cowboys stampede. Every year. so it's like. Oh man like wait. There's cowboys in canada and unlike in in alberta there are there's cowboys i always wanted to go to stampede man. I looked so fun such a fun time. I'm not shitting on it or anything. It's just like is just kind of weird. Because i'm like wait. There's like this whole cowboy thing and everyone's like wearing cowboy hats and stuff. It's weird to play a dj show for cowboys right. I also played blues desks one year. And i thought that was weird. Everything's weird disappointed because they're just. There's there's a dj stage every festival there really is. I mean okay. This is an aside and then we'll come right back to this have what's the most out of place you felt at a show like. Are there any super weird bookings that come to mind like why. Why did you ask me here. Yeah i've done things like i've done some radio stuff. Where like it's a bit of a radio tour but all the other artists singers. And then like i just go on at the end of dj. The dj closes out but no one in the crowd. Because it's more like a little bit of a corporate thing No one has ever been to dj show so they're just like what is this. Is he going to sing. Tao why is he just standing there. Yeah and they're always like you want to do twenty minutes and i'm like I guess i can do twenty minutes but like a twenty minute. Dj doesn't add. Just get in pocket. And i get your and it's like a comedian. You know exactly. Go up five yes so back to your question. About live shows.

I was going to be able to do both in so i kind of knew that like the four hundred was gonna be by my best area and just really embrace that in in sailing. Okay what i want to give it my all. She's also going to run the four by four hundred and one more gold makes her the most decorated woman in track and field olympic history and finally weird us alison fields. Go from here.

I think a lot of times you know like we feel like our work or you know somebody asked the first question you ask somebody like. What do you do like you know yes. That's what i two. And what i am passionate about and i do love it but i also feel like it's really more about the impact that i wanna have. She wants to remain in track and field in some way future. She said she doesn't quite know what that looks like yet. but i could see her coaching. I could see her being some kind of a brand consultant Especially with her current role running a company and she wants to spend more time with her husband and daughter and see cami actually grow up. And i did ask her if she wanted. Cammy to run a to follow in mama's footsteps and she said not really we'll see where that goes. I love like she played tennis golf. Or you know whatever she wants. Good five but i. I have been so enough traffic at this point on how it will be fun to see. What else in felix dozen this next chapter. But whatever it is she's gonna continue to break boundaries.

Yeah definitely let's get right to it so we're here to talk about. Us track and field star allyson felix and her incredible journey to her fifth olympics which will also be her first olympics. Azam mom so i can. You just remind us of her background and her accomplishments as a spinner. Yes so i mean. Allyson felix is the most decorated athlete in track and field history. She's won ten national titles eighteen world championship medals including thirteen golds. That's more golds at world's than any track and field athlete ever including you sane bolt nine olympic medals six golds three silvers two world records. She's currently tied for the most olympic medals and track and field and one more in tokyo would make her the most decorated woman in olympic track and field history. That's so exciting. She's quite the athlete that i don't think people realize how would you say that. She was known to fans of the us olympic team or the american public in the earlier part of her career. Yeah i mean her. Reputation was really for coming on scene. Super yacht maybe as the successor sprint star for the united states allyson felix. He's only eighteen years old. She already has been on the cover. Sports illustrated how about that at eighteen years old. You know she. She burst onto the scene as a senior in high school In two thousand three. She broke marion. Jones is national school record In the two hundred meter she was in high school athlete of the year that year she was known for being this kind of revolutionary athlete by forgoing a track and field scholarship at usc in order to sign pro with adidas and allyson felix has been running with more confidence each round here and she's really rounding in the shape of a first female or male athlete to go straight from high school right into the pros up until recently. She's been an eyes on the prize. Kind of athlete. Where i think a lot of people will tell you you know she. She really had a one pun. Intended one track mind to get those olympic gold. There is a rising star. alison feelings. Soon wins the two hundred meter competition. The eighteen year old leads the us contingent to athens well in two thousand nineteen. She sort of exploded on the national radar in a way that i think transcended sports. So can you walk us through. How things unfolded with her and nike. So after the twenty six th olympics in rio she announced that for twenty eight teams should be taking some time off and at the time she said. I've never really taken a break. I just wanna take some time for myself. I'm still going to raise but don't be alarmed if you don't see me out there. We now know that she was pregnant at the time and she had already begun. Contract renegotiations with nike. Apparently nike had already offered her a seventy percent pay-cut without knowing that she was pregnant but knowing that she was going to scale back her running. At the time. I was thirty two years old. That's where they felt. My value was and so i already didn't have a great feeling moving forward. You know thinking about starting a family with she and her brother who was also agent decided at the time that they were going to hide her pregnancy from nike out of fear that they would end those negotiations. Now there was precedent for that nike had done that before. Two other runners. So it wasn't an unfounded fear. Generally your contract is held. So it's place on a hold in when you return to competition then your contract with resume. She started to show when she was in the later stages of her pregnancy she trained before dawn so that nobody would see her baby bump she were backing clothes. She you know. She didn't invite a ton of people to her baby shower and she said it was really isolating time and during that time she developed severe pre eclampsia which is A condition marked by high blood pressure that causes childbirth complications and is far more prevalent among african american women. When i went in for a routine appointment at thirty two weeks i never went home. I gave birth to my daughter two days later and spent the next month in the hospital between myself and my daughter. And you know. She looks back on that time. And she says it was one of the scariest the scariest time of her life and while i am spending countless hours.

"Felix has brought to us by Lake Washington. Windows and doors. Good morning feelings, weren't it? Yeah, In an old thesis published back in the 19 twenties, I stumbled across Doing some other research, a scholar mention a law that created the Chinese police tax. So one of the reasons that Spokane County ceased to exist for several years back in the 18 sixties. A little complicated, but it might have been a gambit to collect more of this tax by trying administratively FOLD Spokane into Stevens County. There are hundreds of Chinese working in the mining industry there anyway. It was that county research That led to this me sort of learning about this thing for the first time now stepping back of it. The history of Chinese people in the western United States is not something we hear a lot about. You know, the Chinese Exclusion Act in 18 82 federal law ended Chinese immigration to this country for about 60 years. And those violent explosions in the 18 eighties tended to reduce the presence of that population. For some perspective. I spoke with the Seattle man named Doug Chin along with his twin brother Art. He's authored a number of books about Chinese history in Washington. Oh, morning, Seattle Long time ago, 1942 went to school here. Uh, yeah. And, uh, never read anything about Chinese. I only learned about anti Chinese stuff when my brother started doing this in China when he was their student. Interested, washed. I've read one of his term papers. That's uh, found out about the Chinese experience. In Washington. Yes, it was a little remote, and what Doug Chin found out is that the first Chinese people were in Washington territory by the 18 fifties. And while those anti Chinese riots took place decades later There was resentment and prejudice right away. And he and his brother even mentioned the Chinese police tax on the first page of the first book. Yeah. Chinese Unfair label competition. Is that the capitalists as well as other cultural factors you made, they couldn't assimilate, you know, and their entire religion That there were filthy, their intelligence would be load of waste and so forth there, so there was cultural ethnic as well as economic factors, uh, that people had against the Chinese. Yeah. And Chinese people had come to California before they came to Washington territory. This in the 18 forties, and so was California that passed a law in April 18 62 with this title and act to protect free white labor against competition with Chinese coolie labor. And to discourage the immigration of the Chinese into the state of California. Very clear. What you see is what you get not know, hiding the intent there in the title Now, the California law required all Chinese men and women. To pay $7.50 a quarter as what they call the Chinese police tax. That's $30 annually or the equivalent of about $500 today. I mean, that's real money. That same year, 18 62, Oregon imposed a $5 annual tax on blacks, Chinese mulattos and Hawaiians. So then in 18 64, Washington's territorial legislature, passed along with almost exactly the same title is California's. The whole law is almost over. Bottom copy, though there are some differences. For instance, in Washington territory, the tax was $6 a quarter It's a little less in California. I did find evidence of being enforced in King County in 18 66 with those who didn't pay being forced to help build a road now in each county. The tax was collected by the sheriff and the individual officer got to keep 25% of whatever he collected. Would you know it's an inducement or incentive, right? But right now it seems ripe for corruption. But there was paperwork involved. I don't know of any of those actual receipts surviving. I would love to track those down now. The remainder of the 75% was split halfway between each county and the territory. They were tough Economic times during the Civil war here, because government spending really dropped off, and this was her a gambit to raise money. Now, here's the real oddity. The law specifically gave Watkin County a much higher rate of $10 recorder. That's roughly $160 in 2021. Now, why would watch him get to charge more almost doubled in other counties. In 18 64. Bellingham, As we know it didn't get exist in what could county Jeff Julissa what? The museum says there were two main communities there. They had walked him and see home is kind of these rival. To dusty towns that there are rainy towns, depending on what time of the year you wanted to look at him. You know each with you know, maybe 750 to 1000 inhabitants. And serving almost strictly Osama Cisco market, so everything was shipped out coal and lumber. So there's a pretty strong economic connection between walking county in San Francisco, maybe a cultural pull political connection to know I got a lot of help with this story from the law library at Seattle University and a retired law library and Kelly coach. They shared with the evidence. They found a British Columbia essentially mimicking what California was doing. No, they would see what California did to discriminate against the Chinese and mimic it in British Columbia. So it's not a great lead to speculate that Washington territory was doing the same and passing its own Chinese police tax even down to copying the language. But that higher rated Watkin County is still something of a mystery about what Western Washington diversity in Bellingham. Josh already is an associate professor of history. The higher tax was news to him, and he theorized that it's related to what comes proximity to the border. There were a number of people who would come to the states from China at that time were transiting through southern BC. And so they would come, you know. Bye. Often from Hong Kong to Vancouver and then from the Inn Coover. They might cross down by land because they were often lots of opportunities do like periodic labor shortages down here in the extraction industry. Yes. So there wasn't a federal immigration policy, So maybe this was walking county taking it. I don't know how they were able to get that it put into the bill to be able to collect so much more tax. No, I'll be enough. California's Chinese police tax didn't last very long. It was struck down as discriminatory by the California Supreme Court is the same year it became a law. And in Washington territory. It was repealed in 18 69, and it warms my heart to read the name of the law that repeal it. It was an act to repeal all police tax laws discriminating against Chinese, Mongolians and Tanaka are Hawaiians. So in 18 69 lawmakers here We're calling it what it was discriminating. That's there's something encouraging about that. That's still you know, it's part of the history and Doug Chin says that knowing this kind of history is we're belonging comes from I think it's important to know the legacy of the Chinese American experience in Washington state, because, uh, if you're Chinese You want to feel that you should get or you'd be long here in Washington. That your race that Cheney's pit an important role in developing Washington state, Otherwise you don't feel part of it. You know your mother that best Marginalize. You know what I mean? So it's a story. Yeah, There's so much more that I love to figure out the actual people involved in making that law happen and making it go away, And meanwhile, the Chinese memorial project will be dedicating a monument next year. Down on Alaska way between Washington and South Main to those 18 85 18 86 explosions, So it's You got to keep this history transparent to keep learning from it. That's that's what I believe.

Ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, Allyson Felix Is Running for Black Mothers Everywhere

"In two thousand eighteen decorated american sprinter allyson felix began the arduous process of conditioning. Her body for the twenty twenty olympics in tokyo. We all know what happened next. The pandemic broke out and the games were postponed for a full year which means that felix has essentially had to live through her trimester twice the newly popular term which was coined by author lawrence road in her twenty seventeen book of the same name in capsules often challenging months when many postpartum mothers rejoined the workforce moments of which felix has had many. Because it isn't just her track and field. Training that has required endurance. The nine time olympic medalist and the only woman to win six olympic track and field. Gold medals has become a vocal advocate for fetal and maternal healthcare and equal pay causes that she has taken up in front of congress and in a widely circulated new york times op. Ed in which he criticised nike for failing to add protections to her contract in the months surrounding the birth of her daughter in response the company announced a new maternity policy that guaranteed an athletes pay and bonuses for eighteen months surrounding pregnancy. This week proctor and gamble released a series of video celebrating felix's accomplishments both on and off the track as she prepares to return to the olympic qualifiers in june as a sprinter a season competitor and as a mom who still needs to negotiate childcare with her partner. I imagine the last year has been particularly interesting for. I mean everybody has their own version of hal. The pandemic has impacted them personally. But i can't imagine having trained for a full year expecting the games to happen. And then basically getting a year pause and it occurred to me that you are essentially in what is now called your fifth trimester which kind of evolves for many months. When you're sort of a new and working mom and you have a very unique job. So i'm very curious you know how did your life kind of change. You have a small child at home. You'd been training for a year trying to get back to where you need to be. Then you get a whole other year at any point. Did you sort of think. I'm not gonna do this. I was very doubtful. There was a time period. I think it was right when the olympics were announced that they were going to be postponed and our family had made so many sacrifices. Like you said we had worked so hard already to that point you know with dealing with the you know the exhaustion. The lack of sleep in it just felt like a whole 'nother year. You're asking us to do this it. It felt very very hard. And i felt like I was still kind of taking space degree. The loss at the olympics wasn't going to happen the way that i had imagine And then think after. I went through that then. I was like well. We've come too far this point we're all in like i've got to see this thing through But there were moments that that were just difficult. I think any new mom new in freshly new working mom whatever that looks like for you. It's hard to figure out what your new life looks

"Want Felix to just ultimately realized that he is worthy of love, and he's worthy of respect, even if the rest of the world doesn't show him that in the way that they should. So, Felix his name is Felix. Love did that come when we're developing that part of the story, or did you already know? Felix's last name would be loving went from there. It's so funny that you ask that. Because I spent so long trying to figure out Felix's last name I would even ask a bunch of friends. Like what do you think of this what you think of that and And I would add I think I was like Felix page Felix I can't remember the other last names at this point, but it was like when I was in the middle of that draft, and realizing that this was all about his journey to self love that. I landed on just having his last name. Belove as I'm kind of a symbol for what the book really is about. I love that. But. in the story my heart broke when Felix was called misogynistic for being transgender because he didn't want to be growing anymore, but my immediate thought was. That makes no sense because although Felix may have been born in a funeral body. He always knew that he wasn't really a female. He didn't appreciate that label. And he knew he wasn't a girl. And also there's no correlation between living our truth and appreciating or respecting women, so that argument was very flawed and reading Felix felt the emotion I saw the writing. It really reminded me that people go through this every single day in sometimes ignorant. Ignorance in the world really stopped me when people are bold enough to say things like that, not comprehend the fact that their words can hurt another person the way that they hurt feel like so. What are your thoughts on the discrimination of individuals in the LGBTQ plus community in what do you think is a good way to combat the ignorance and hatred?.

"felix" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

"So Allyson Felix is going to join us here in about fifteen minutes. And if you're not familiar with her story, one of the many things that people are learning in two thousand nineteen as men, see some of the things that women go through. And we've talked here and some very small ways about the idea. That most men don't walk to their car fearing that someone might be over their shoulder. Or what mean at times has told us which is, you know, when you're man, getting on an elevator with the woman press your floor. I it's just things that escaped the attention of men things that represent privilege. And so Alison Felix here to tell you that she deals with something that most athletes don't have to deal with most superstar, athletes, most athletes were good at what they do, as she is at what she does does don't have to deal with the idea that they're Nike contracts are impacted by things like pregnancy. So we're going to have her on. But what did you make of that story is, when you read it, it's interesting with me, because, you know, as over the last several years, you know, I'm sort of coming to terms with who I am and being comfortable with that you start to recognize how things in the world are sort of set up against your have been. Right. And so, you know, dive into the homophobia thing and you just realize that homophobia is essentially sexism it saying, hey, you act or thing. Or do you know react like a girl, like girl? So that makes you weaker and like so you go on and you realize that man like the inequalities between men and women are ridiculous. And just the idea that as an elite athlete, you have to plan the pregnancy. You have to be aware of when and why and it affects your dollars. It's just ridiculous. I just wanna read this one thing real quick 'cause it's performance based. Right. So those contracts are performance based can't run pregnant. And so it's costing her money to get pregnant, right? And so the idea though, that you should be protected in those scenarios where here's an Olympia, her name is CARA gal the most difficult part of motherhood wasn't resuming training, just a week after childbirth a week after childbirth in two thousand ten it wasn't even her doctor. Told her she must choose run a hundred and twenty miles each week or breastfeed her son, her body, couldn't do both the toughest moment was when she learned that Nike would stop paying her until she started racing again, but she was already pregnant. So she scheduled a half marathon, three months after her son was born. And then her son got dangerously ill. She had to choose again, be with her son or prepare for the racist. She hoped she would restart her pay. I mean, it's just ridiculous decisions that they have to make. And then in the middle of it, you get your money stripped from you. And then at the end of it, you have to worry about how well you perform, how soon you're perform after pregnancy. It's just it's crazy. I wonder how many women outside of honestly, one, I wonder how many women outside of Serena Williams could actually get Nike to pay her while pregnant and I don't know that any other woman is there another woman in America. What another woman athlete in America? That would have the star power that, yes, we will treat you. You like you are legitimately great and famous, like, we would any other athlete. We will pay you for a leave. We will pay you when we will respect maternity, is there anyone outside of Serena, the next place. I go is women's soccer team. The national soccer team because they're pretty popular here in the state and I can't think they're always complaining about pay pay quality and they've, and they've made some headway there being so vocal about it making repeal Carli Lloyd, because Carli Lloyd was the player of the tournament last World Cup possibly. But I think Serena by country mile so we will talk to her about that. But not before letting Stu gods. Get off some Chris Paul and James harden takes before he gets out of here. He's got to prepare for around the horn he's gonna blow towards the whole place. What, what are you putting away there?.
