What Has Changed Since George Floyd
"Protests against racial injustice are motivating some political candidates to take on challenging races. In the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona Democrats are targeting a predominantly white district that has been held by Republicans for nearly a decade. Steve Goldstein from member station Cage's reports. That ethics violations committed by the incumbent could make the race more competitive. Arizona six Congressional district is centered in Scottsdale. Its residents are highly educated, affluent and early 75% white Congressman David Schweikert was reelected by double digits here in 2018. But Schweickart had been under investigation by the House Ethics Committee, and on Thursday he admitted to 11 violations and agreed to pay $50,000 fine Schweickart perspective. Opponents immediately pounced on the news. Here's Democrat Anita Malik. There's a part of me that's glad that we finally have closure to this investigation, but it is so infuriating to see him simply get off with a slap on the wrist. Even before acknowledging the ethics violations, Schweiker was already expected to face an intense general election campaign, in part because of an electorate that wants more action on combating racial injustice. One of the Democrats. Looking to challenge him is African American businessman Carl Gentles. While he believes many here are worried about education and jobs, he says, the killing of George Floyd has led to more direct conversations about racial injustice in the district has seen before. While George, Florida's African American I am an African American, and certainly I can see myself my son, my father, my brother in the face of George Floyd beneath that. Officers NI. I think people can see their own family members, no matter what race they are in the face of tourist Floyd Tianna Chander is one of those people Gentles is describing. She moved into the district eight years ago. Rallies and protests illustrated for her the dramatic need to find solutions. Chandler is middle aged and white. It's not okay to just be silent anymore, and we've got to figure out what the heck got us to this point and how we can try and sort of turned the tide and get rid of some of that racism. Hate Willingness to look the other way when things that we know what an OK continue to happen. Schweickart has been silent on race related topics. But the changing political environment since the killing of George Floyd may force him to talk about them. Erica County, which accounts for 60% of arrows on his population, has seen a clear shift toward more progressive voting in 2018 that included pushing Kirsten cinema to US Senate victory, becoming the first Democrat to win in arrows in a Senate race in nearly 25 years. But it's not just that Phoenix is growing rapidly, more diverse as Quentin James He's the founder and president of collective Pack, which is focused on electing African Americans across the country. There are a ton of suburban white women who are seeing these videos and wondering If those votes for Donald Trump in 2016. If don't do that, again, Republican consultant stand Barnes understands why Democrats are generally optimistic about 2020 here but says it's misplaced in the Phoenix suburbs. I do not think the racially charged politics that we're living in that the moment plays favorably for the Democratic nominee. In that congressional district, in part that it's so overdone, and I think voters are numb to that kind of play. But Quentin James believes that voters now more than any other time in recent history, are looking to choose the best candidate. Whatever color they are part of what folks One also know is Do you hear me? And are you going to fight for me? And it doesn't take white voters to get white candidates just to do that, or Blackwater's only looking for black answer. I think that's the core question, James says. As candidates of color are becoming more common, voters are increasingly more comfortable with choosing them to bring about changes many in the public are calling for for NPR news. I'm Steve Goldstein in Phoenix.

The World is Watching Us
"Why it matters spends a lot of time discussing how things that happen around the world of us at home. It's kind of our thing. But today we're GONNA flip that around because the killing of George Floyd, the protests against police, brutality and systemic racism, and the administration's response are not only unfolding here in the united. States the world is listening to and depending on where you are, the echoes can sound different. To better understand how this is playing out, we turn to two American journalists who've spent their careers. Reporting abroad will ask them to give us their own thoughts and experiences, and to describe what America looks like right now through the eyes of those who are watching from afar. They told us to places Africa and Hong Kong. I'm Gabrielle Sierra and this is why it matters today. Diplomacy starts at home. This kind of reminds me how throughout history and on I've studied history and political science, and throughout history, America's goal and mission of trying to go around and promote democracy and human rights around the world has constantly been undercut by how they treat minorities and particularly African Americans at home. I'm Keith Rich Berg I'm currently the director of the journalism and Media Studies Center at the University of Hong Kong, but I spent most of my career about thirty four years as a reporter and correspondent for the Washington Post. During the Cold War The old Soviet Union. Propagandists used to take great pleasure in pointing out. How Black Americans were treated in the American south during the Jim. Crow, era. Know the propagandists during the Vietnam War would like to point out how American blacks were being treated that we were not able to really as strongly as we wanted to stand up against the apartheid regime in South Africa in its early days, because the apartheid regime in South Africa was in many ways modeled on the Jim Crow segregation laws of the American south, so I think throughout history, America's stated mission and goal of promoting democracy and Human Rights and Roosevelt's four freedoms around the world have constantly been undercut by enemies who are willing to point out the hypocrisy of America's positions in America's promotion of human rights by saying before You Cup lecture US wanted you deal with their own problems at home. It's quite painful for me because I do have both experiences you know living in, America when Nigeria I do have both us. I've experienced racism in America. My name is Chico Odwalla. I am an independent multimedia journalist I am based in West Africa and I cover the entire continent for various international media outlets. Killing of George Floyd was very jarring. It was a wakeup. It was a brutal awakening for people who actually don't quite believe. Racism is as real as African Americans say that it is. You still got people who don't believe. It's that strong. Who believe that it's from the past that there have been many moves towards overcoming you know some people still believe that. America is a post racial society so for this incident. This killing of George Florida's like Oh. Actually it's still there and we saw it on TV we saw this guy breathing for his life for nearly nine minutes. So that aspect it is a rude awakening. It's really provoking some nations to look inward. Look at their own injustice for example in France. A people they're calling for an end to the chokehold that some police officers us, and so they're having debates on how to handle people

"NYC I'm lance lucky the death of George Florida black man killed by police in Minneapolis has spurred demonstrations across the country here in New York protesters took to the streets over the weekend many are while most actions were peaceful there were a handful of violent encounters between police and protesters widely shared on social media the events left many asking where was the mayor and all this and someone who promised to transform the NYPD what is he accomplished during his six plus years in office joining me now via Skype is W. NYC city hall and politics reporter Brigid Bergin hi Bridget highlands eighty one I'm good thanks last night seemed to be the most difficult nights so far for these protests one of the most shocking scene shared on social media shows two police cars in Brooklyn pulling into a crowd of people many are behind a metal barricade and they appear to be trying to stop one of the vehicles as the other polls around it both the drive through the protesters who can be seen scattering what did the mayor say about the protests and some of these more disturbing images you know when to find large the mayor defended the police and credited them for their restraint so far he also praised the protesters and characterize the events is largely peaceful as you said and so he was grateful there was no serious injuries or loss of life so far but there's really no escaping those really frightening images like the one you describe or two police cars drove into that group of protesters and here's what he said specifically about that I'd like what I saw one day I did not want to ever see something like that I don't want to see again and clearly where you need to do a full investigation and look at the actions of those officers and see what was gonna why it was done or what could be done differently at the same time the mayor put some of the blame on protesters for surrounding those cars you know the night before and it deeply smart to Dan was set on fire and while he said this latest incident needed to be fully investigated he also refers reference this so called X. factor of protesters anarchists some of whom he cleaned came to communities just to cause trouble he said the NYPD would be putting out more details about this but so far we haven't seen them right now how did the mayor try to address some of the concerns raised by leaders particularly in the black community about the need for more change within the NYPD he says he's been speaking with local elected leaders and police officials throughout the day including a meeting with Brooklyn public it's usually a meeting in Brooklyn the public advocate you money Williams yesterday the mayor said essentially he just he needs to do more he acknowledged his privilege and and the gas he has in his understanding as a white man in America and then you read an excerpt from the statement issued by the city council's black Latino and Asian caucus those twenty six members make up a majority of the council represent millions of city residents I spoke with councilmember injuring Adams a co chair of the caucus who represents a portion of southeast queens and she was frustrated that the mayor left out the first two sentences of their statements written statement which said quote last night we witnessed the NYPD act with aggression towards New Yorkers vigorously in those separately but nonetheless peacefully advocating for justice in the names of George Floyd Brianna Taylor and the generations of black and brown people who were subjected to brutality and murder by the law enforcement officials sworn to protect them when the system fails us no one can dare deny us our feelings of outrage or suggest that we suppress the urge to confront our oppressors and here's what Adam said about that omission those two sentences specifically referenced that history of the city of New York NYPD and race relations than like PT and not to mention that I think was it was just the wrong message to send specifically said it was the wrong message to send to communities of color I also spoke with councilmember I didn't know or her co chair he also said this is city budget season and the council will be scrutinizing the NYPD's budget looking to see if they can find bigger cuts in a better location of the city's resources and you also see the merit commissioner would do more to review leadership within the department particularly at the command level were you see individuals leading officers on the ground now the mayor often talks about transforming the NYPD and changing the relationship between police and the community they serve did you talk about doing more than changing policy he did I I asked him directly what about the culture of police it has to change it has to change if we're going to be a factor that has to change about protecting and protect officers it is not where it needs to be for the world of today it must J. Mr also said he was committed to making cultural changes remember who the department works for but they didn't say a lot more specifically about what they would do Brigid you've covered the mayor throughout this administration and this is not the first time he's faced street protests what's different about how he's handling it this time lance I think we have to remember this is a mayor who has been living in crisis mode since the beginning of March he's been forced to do things shutting down schools and businesses to using the NYPD another strike force social distancing he's relying commissioner for information which means he's getting a point of view and when it comes to these protests critics have asked why hasn't he been more visible and more on the ground people are looking for the John Lindsay moment where he walks the streets to call for common hearing I think the answer maybe he just feels old buddies during crises he never wants to have the NYPD turn their backs on him again like they did in twenty fifteen and yet he's walking a very fine line as council member Adam city and still there are folks who would like to see him doing more and be more visible if we deal with this time while on the streets that's W.

Donald Trump feuds with Twitter
"Protests in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd escalating happened last night. The focus. The police precinct were four officers. Were based of who were fired. After died in their custody that happened on Monday. Demonstrators pushed down temporary fencing and occupy property at the precinct and fires. Burn both sides of the building. Officers fired tear-gas from the ground end. A rooftop officials said the building was cleared of staff shortly after ten PM. Local time and protesters forcibly entered the building and knighted several fires. Now meantime this is turning into more than a local story. This is becoming a national story and a public policy story. President Trump tweeting about the violence. Just before one a m eastern time. In one of those tweets was flagged by twitter. This time twitter says the second part of a two part tweet violated the company's rules about glorifying violence but twitter determined that it may be in the interest for that tweet to remain accessible. Here's what the president said. He said I can't stand back and watch this happen to a great American city. Minneapolis a total lack of leadership. Either the very weak radical left Mayor Jacob Fray get his act together and bring the city under control or I will send in the National Guard and get the job done right. These thugs are dishonoring. The memory of George Florida and I won't let that happen. Just spoke to governor Tim Walz and told him that the military is with him all the way any difficulty and we will assume control but when the looting starts the shooting starts thank you exclamation point. Twitter explained that the last line violated its policy based on the historical context. It's connection to violence and the risk that it could inspire similar actions today yesterday. President trump signed an executive order seeking to limit of course the broad legal protection that federal law provides to social media and other online platforms. We talked about it. It seeks to make it easier for regulators to hold twitter and facebook liable if they are deemed to be unfairly curbing user speech and we had that conversation yesterday with Mark Zuckerberg about all of that. And where the social media companies come down on these things and when they're going to be stepping in or not here we are and I don't envy twitter. I don't envy any of them. And you heard Sucker Berg told you is like we don't want you don't want that responsibility he doesn't want to either. That's that's not. But but how do you spell separate yourself from it when you're when your facebook or twitter

"The George Florida in my yeah as far as I'm concerned it was a it was murder and Tom sign and as a policeman your thoughts on exactly what happened in Minneapolis all man I can't explain what happened I mean when you usually look at you fourteen percent they're usually a viral or some type of validation and the speed of an incentive to K. all all the things that go along with it but the rocket man there is nothing that is justifiable excusable are within reason everywhere you look from every level every angle it was wrong no matter what Mr Ford did all the appointees accused of the lads pass will be use drugs it won't matter what the coroner's report comes out with it won't matter if there's a previous heart condition drug use mental health I tried to biliary on whatever the case may be what will forever be theme with the fence then remember to shift the callousness Indian community of that officer found in you know what ninety what bothers me is ninety nine point nine nine nine percent of the cops go out every day to do their job to try to make a difference and be positive in his life they could give the I've watched cops take money out of pocket the whole people sacrifice their time secretary lost their lives in their the Columbus office or shop today and we're not able to focus on that if you deal with this and I'm gonna tell you any rocky one what walk trot okay most popular the ninety nine point nine nine percent of them is they'll look at this thing go this was so unavoidable this did not happen happen at any time could it just stood up even if you set my knees accidentally on the head or neck is stand up when the person because I can't breathe just stand up when the crowds the thinker with cell phone saying he can't breathe all he had to do with stand up that indifference man it it's not excusable in it in the cart the field of the profession what I always have faith in is that the ninety nine point nine nine percent of those cops will continue to go out to their jobs every day in a lot of people a lot of people for calling this out there was no way need to justify that there are no other variables with it this is just plain and simple wrong Thomas I know myself I I took a couple days you know the E. here anymore so you you know you're supposed to re all respond to some react to it right away but I teach I specifically took a couple days I want to get all the information we get all the video angles make sure there wasn't anything that I was missin because oftentimes there is there some sort of circumstance barely on isn't out there this one I looked at every piece of video that you can find out there and to me this was absolutely uncalled for for officers you know with three of the four kneeling on this guy I mean he's a tall guy six six but he's not like a body builder young guy who is just the rational man he was you know I'm saying we we look at kind of a make your your kind of god and did not hold compliant total totally compliant so so about but what your take is the mind of an officer Tom like it is there anything in your opinion you know that may be triggered that the officer to act that way and to your point there's people around the world video cameras folks are saying Hey he can't breathe and it's not like he's biting scratching clone what could have possibly gone to this officer's mind Tom to make someone I've never been a situation you have what what what could have possibly happened there when it comes to use of force law enforcement has a lot of leeway and it legally that way and a lot of times when you look at these incidents you got the right you're not generally going to see a lot of people stand up and speak out there's only one kind of variable there's always something goes along with it and what may seem a moral looks even play a little gifts for some of the moral or unethical it doesn't necessarily mean it would be legal the general you wait for all those those factors to come in but with this on its head for so long and not do anything myself and many elder offer to place people in the country even after fighting with them and some of the I can't breathe what you yeah he it probably can't because you're on your stomach so you just you get up you put him on your side you you put them all you set them up your concern for not only their safety but also you legally have a responsibility to make sure that person stayed alive man I can't explain what going to the altar is mine and you know what whatever impact society people who police officers I have the same issue or deal with the same issues whether economic disparities race issues religion different political beliefs whatever may be but when put on that uniform and the ninety nine point nine nine percent of us go out there and we don't think about the things we have a personal thing is we have our judgment we don't take it on the street it could be anything from race it could be someone who's been on the job for a long time and they're just all that work could be what we call cop intent the content the cop that poll thing I've got the power you're gonna listen to what I say or what I do but here's the thing okay no matter what you look man I like the cop is being a lot in as you go throughout your career meant there was no way that what you see and hear and feel the impact you but usually what happens when a motion run high when you're angry when you're upset when that personal parts of bleeding into that law enforcement thought move people around you stop you and say Hey man take a breath it is it ironic that cop that's how we train a lot of our guys it take a breath look around see what's going on get a fresh view of things but no one there all the people the office then and there did not take a second to think man take it up take a breath it's all good it's over and there's been many implants were seen emotion one high someone will step in government we got Pfister good behind the site when you walk away you take that breath that didn't happen here and I have known explanation other than men and I talk about this with with other issues with addiction and that's why I kind of doubt it was kind of like a can't stand up and speak out about all the reviews and treat people fairly and talk about humanity and and not speak out about this one and to me that's what it comes down to the lack of humanity no matter what goes on but we need to treat people as human beings that can be the priority in law enforcement and I do think a lot of times if we did that not only in law enforcement but just in general you look at people if people understood their different there are other issues they have other beliefs then generally we don't have these problems think about the biggest police issues subsections Kamal but often it's just because someone was not treating someone humanely and that's what it comes down to for me to manatee from the things we need to be teaching law enforcement not that long course but in general what we're talking about politics race religion is first and foremost humanity so let me ask you Tom we're talking to Tom sign in based on what you just said do you find these other officers complicit and this man's death you cannot sit there and look at and not buying them completely I mean they have a responsibility to one guy did it took one guidance see what you said it's a hate stand down but we got this yeah and there may be all kinds of different reasons maybe their PTSD I don't know what the issues are but man other office center under the ninety nine point nine nine percent the cops I know we'll get that bump and would benefit Hey we got this makes up off we got it it's all good under control so yeah you can not stand there and watch this happen to the police officer and be okay with that I don't think there's any officer that I know and trust me then you got it all over social media all retaining up and they would not tolerate this I know here the people I work with would not tolerate this happening so yeah they they there's no other way to look at it as being completed and then I think you saw all the actions of Minneapolis PD in the administration and now a lot of times their differences between administration and the people in the field but I think this is one of those times work other office looking at the single man not only would be wrong to put his knee on him as long as he did he did think nor the cry for the person to just breathe but those people stand around watching the officers watching the two were also wrong so Tom look I want you every once you want on most every cop right is you said the majority do the right thing everybody wants to get the bad apples out a bunch right that that's the ultimate goal here that's what everyone should be focused on how do you do that in your opinion how DO you know again when you're talking about hundreds of thousands of officers across the country in a small small percentage my new percentage are the ones that aren't doing the right thing how do we separate those how do we teach them how to we instruct them do the right thing or if they can't do that until we get the hell out how do we go about that you may want to think that the state of Ohio many police departments have been working on a few major departments with issue with restructuring they go in and and talk about all the officers being able to have channels to report incidents or to talk about these things and stuff and I I got it they will we had an issue with one of our officers in those broadly reported in the media a long time ago but we knew that he was doing stuff wrong and I had my own after stepped up and said we don't appreciate this this is not good this is not who we are we not let them go and then later on down the road he developed an addiction issues and then up lobbing several banks put numerous officers in danger include are not bank but the convenience stores and put them all through the phone armed officers and it was one of my offices that turn the men who recognize the color turn.
