Develop, twenty first century skills. Strange strangely, you get to be eighty two and you start thinking about this, but once again. When I asked that question, how can I stay relevant? If I'm going to be relevant I've got to be able to develop twenty four centuries, skills and. Unanticipated you saying well coach? What our twenty first century skills are I think you have to develop the skills. That are transferable. and sustainable in the twenty first century there's there's so obviously leadership and communication, and just all communication, but written communication relationships. As long as we live, there's going to have to be leaner shifts. We're going to have to communicate. We're going to have to have relationships problem solving decision making information literacy critical big tests. Are we go on? The teamwork analytical thinking. What I try to do is take one of those. And for six months read as much as I. Can about what? Soda can better understand. How I can quit myself because I've.

All of this is free of my ability of of movement, and so now I got an I've got a a quick myself with these twenty first century skills particularly. At eighty two years old. because. The last thing. I want to be as a relic. And and protect myself from becoming a relic. I got I got to be able to compete. And ended twenty-first-century. I gotTA. Be Able to compete with young people.

They're the ones that again inherited dismiss. And they're the ones that are going to have to. Fix It. And I. I feel so bad for our our our grandchildren and children, and and general these young people. Were leaving a mess on. And they. They're gonNA have to excel these skills. Because they're the ones who are GONNA have to figure out. What to do this mess that we must on doors to. What one of the one of the things I enjoy about. Our interactions Georgia's that you're. You're a man of ideas and concepts, but you're also of action. You do a lot and it's. It's informed action. There are millions of people right now. I'm sure probably tens hundreds of millions who are unsure of what to do, and perhaps also afraid of doing the wrong thing and. I'd be curious to know. If you have any advice for people who are. Feeling a need to do something, but don't know what to do. Of course we see. We've seen a lot of statements that have been issued. If you have any thoughts on statements what form they should take if any just love to hear your thoughts for those who feel like they should or need to do something, but are unsure of what to do. Look two days one. What can one do just be simple? Just let it start with yourself. Start with you and and do your part. I, want I'm going to. Come back to this public statement thing, but what what? I would like the as. And you did. This is is a partial energy. To what can we do? I would. Like the as each of those who are listening to. This Interview. Take a pledge. I would like you to write this down and take display if you WanNa know what you can do. Is this. And the pledges I encourage. I'm going to encourage each of our listeners to do this and the pledges I will fully commit. To being a positive change at. A positive difference maker. And in many lives as possible. Doesn't take money and it doesn't matter what race you are. Is. Just a simple pledge is got gotta start. Correcting wrongs, wrongs have to start with our behavior. And as say that again I got if you ever wanted to something. For me, just take this pledge and live I will fully commit. To being a positive change agent. A positive difference maker, and then and as many lives as possible. He don't have to be rich you. It doesn't make any difference if your core doesn't make any difference if you're black or white. You can control. Nobody can take this away from this Nobody can take this commitment away from you to be a positive change agent to be a positive difference maker to be kind of people. It might not change the world. But if you say one might. That one life will have a rippling effect, and it'll save another license another life another life, and before you know, it will wake up one morning. And we will have made significant change into into world in this place we call America. That's what I would not do as you say what can, Persian Jew. That's my answer to that that the public statement thing honestly I'd kind of grown, were of corporate and organizational speed got enough. In, my attended most of its insincere, anyway and blacks and substance coming. These statements are really solution based. In a so called statements to me in many ways are very evidence of our. Inability, to tell the truth What what do you? What do you mean by, is it? There's a there's a difference tim between his statement and the message see that's the thing everybody runs around. I can't believe how many corporate as Organizational people feel like they have to make a statement I've had friends called and say hey, I got make a statement..

"Say we are. We're not united. And it's not about the people and. These lies Kim that they're just going to hold US hostage. But the truth. Will free us and to me. The system is built. To separate us. Not just by raise. The system is built. To marginalize us. We talk about red states and blue states and foreign belton. Bell Democrats and And Republicans and Conservatives and tea parties rich people and. We're all. These boxes that someone wants to put us in an all these labels. America needs to world labels. GotTa gotTa have a label on it. And, so my fundamental question is this. Why. Does there have to be vox. Boxes have four wall. And at some point they solo with four walls limits my movement. So why? Do I have to operate from a box. The first thing intelligence tells me if I'm in a box, it impedes my ability to reach for my out or sissy human being. So if we allow people to keep us in boxes, how will one ever reached their outer limits? How will? Ever, be able to answer the question. Who Am I? I don't get a chance to explore my out of limits. How do I know who I am? And why I'm honored! And what is it that I'm capable of being so in many ways? In this country. Where living a lie. We've gotta get back to a point where we are who we say we are where either united or not, united. It's either about we. The people are not about weed the people. In Common Language of America. became. Not an English but money. Art Language. Should, not be the line with a money. And I just get. I say to myself that I. Do really believe this at eighty two years old. I'm finally got my. To do I want to give them when I wanted to do it and how I wanted to do it. I'm freed it. To try to. Discover my outer limits. I'm to be. Cool. God meant for me. I honestly and truly believe. that. The last couple years in my life. I, can honestly. Kind of CEO. What Martin Luther King. Said when he spoke at the steps of the. Lincoln Memorial. Free at last. Re as Thank God money I'm create lights. There's the first time. That in my existence on this planet that I could authentically believe. That I'm afraid human being that I can pursue. My outer limits. What changed why? What was the catalyst or the realization realization was? That the system is bill to. Create average people. You go to school. You get an average education. You get an average You live in an average neighborhood. You live an average amount of time. and. And the world. Is populated. Way Average, peak. and. I'm so glad that I live long enough. That I could feel. The necessity to be on calm. In some ways, maybe board. As one God the least of his children. But. I've been truly blessed beyond this planet. For eighteen years. and. I'll be able to die. Knowing. That I didn't die. In the societal box. That was a free enough. Try to reach for my my outer limits, and to explore that phrase a bit exploring your outer limits. I. It seems to imply to me both in awareness of the box that you've been put in or put yourself in, and then a willingness to try to transcend that. What does that Look Lake? Does it look like broad reading? Does it look like uncommon action for you? Personally what has? Your outer limits looked like it's all. Built around. A fundamental question that I have to ask myself time and time again. What is it? That I don't know. But I need to know. What is it that I don't know? But need to know. When I was a student at zone over and and was on basketball scholarship are are closer towards one time in. And they'd be left an indelible mark on my brain with this quote. First sign of intelligence is to admit that we don't know something. So I'm trying to find out. What it is that I, don't know. But I need to know. Sorted I can have relevance on remaining time I'm here. On the Globe and That's simple process. You've gotta take the fences down around you because as long as people can fences around you thinking. Keep you where they want and they want you to be average. And I don't WanNa be I WANNA be uncommon. Is Part of. A leading question, but I'm curious. Is Part of. Keeping those fences down, not applying to many labels to yourself. I just think I'm thinking back to the list that you gave earlier. Liberal progressive this that a versus B.. C. Versus de because I've never I don't think I've ever heard you use. Any of those labels applied to yourself. At least in our in our conversation that we've had. I don't know if that's just because of the nature of the conversations that we've had But are there other ways that you? Keep the fences down. Yeah because the first thing is to recognize, that is offense. people don't examine when when someone is quick to put a label on you and encourage you to live in this box. The first thing he's got a real start to do is start asking. You have a conversation with yourself and start asking. Questions. And so. To me, I'm aware of these fences and and I I.

Intentionally or unintentionally I'm about to come to a standstill because the more people that are in that box them the the less my mobility is..

Into Your heavenly kingdom. Please restores breath. His heartbeat. He'll is wounds. Allow him to live the lives. He was denied on our. God. Showers some of your richest gifts on the Floyd family. Give them the strength doing these challenging times. Their God. Answered George is dying requests for his mother. Please! Fleas. Tonight. One more time. And finally dear Lord! We. Ask You. To Bring Comfort? And understanding. So the multitude of families. Who have suffered. The loss of their own loved ones. During these times of social, change. We! Make this request in your name. Amen. Amen. Thank you for that Georgia. I find myself. In a very different place than I normally would in these conversations I typically come in with a long list of questions have typically done a lot of homework on the personnel be speaking with, and we've already had one very very long conversation and covered lot, but this is really. A An afternoon where I would like, do more listening than anything else, and I just love to hear from you what you're. What you're observing or what you'd like to share about yourself as a way of entering into this conversation, one of the things that you might find intriguing Tim. Is that I have. Had what I call a stop strategy. And I've had this for years and years and years and I feel it so applicable to contemporary times and the things. We're dealing with now. I think each of us are given one life to live. And each was had fundamental responsibility. To protect that vice and protect ourselves from deaths, and when I have conversations with myself. I say to myself. I must never forget. This. Reality! I am black. Forever. And my number one goal. is to stay alive. You know I'm eighty eighty two year old black man. And I drive a a black Alexis as you week. And does I feel. I have to have a stop strategy. What do I do? If I'm pulled over by police. I've got to turn off the motor. I'M GONNA turn on the PLO and I add some overt evidence. What took place? I'M GONNA roll the window down. I'm. GonNa. Put my hands high up on the steering wheel, so did he that it'll be obvious that I don't have anything in my hands. I'll be polite. I'll be overly polite now, say yes, sir, no sir! Yes, ma'am, no ma'am! And there's a request made for my license I'll ask for permission to reach into my pocket and pull it out. I'll give them my dragush license and I'll also give them. An Old Faculty ID card that I had from when I was coaching at USA. And then I'll pray. And at that moment, I always have one objective. And that is to stay alive. And Ten. Raleigh. It comes a time when you're. When you! You been a black person. WHERE WE HAVE A. Refunded with this reality in that reality is that. We're black forever. But you know what the burden of being black. Wealth And hopefully. It'll bring out the best in me. The very best in me, and and when all is said and done. The only the only true. Validation I see. Is Myself Validation. I've grown to understand that I if it's just senseless for me to struggle for America's validation. If I do that Jim. I'm always going to be chasing Agus. And so that's why as an eighty two year old. Black male. I understand the importance and relevance of having what I call a stop strategy, and have you ever had to use that or have you used it outside is. Do you have other stop strategies for outside of the automobile? How else what other strategies have you carried with yourself throughout life as a black male? Do any come to mind. As your relationship to be in stopped by a policeman. I simple as as as I've been pulled over I on Thomson and and can be totally transparent if it was if I ran a light or I added speeding ticket. I clearly understand that, but I also recognize that there is a protocol that law. Westwood has engage in and so I'm not gonNA ever assume that that my life is not at at risk and so I I wanna be I wanna be prepared when when I, if something like that. Happens. Sadly. I feel like. I'd reached a point in life. Where I have to live my life on defense I've gotta worry more about someone else's. deportment our behavior, then my own. And I realized that as a said. Out Forever be black, so I have to expect that there's going to be certain preconceived ideas about me as a black male. People's people saying they know me Tim. But they don't. They don't really know me. and. I can honestly say you in my lifetime. that. Most people have never really tried to know me. They have a surface impression of May and may be one of our challenges is to try to better understand each other I. Don't put an indictment on people, but I feel guilty that I think I need to know people. I need I need to feel their paying ninety two to to understand that they're carrying somebody else's cross. And you've instant impressions misconceptions I want to mention for people who perhaps didn't listen to part one because I imagine a lot of people will jump to this very timely as at the time of recording conversation. We're having now, but you own probably more than a hundred thousand dollars worth of black collectibles, including figurines books postcards first addition of Uncle Tom's cabin, and some of these are very derogatory. Black person eating watermelon with a smile on his face on a postcard for instance and some of the notes themselves written on those postcards are very derogatory. and I remember from our first conversation. You started to build this historic collections that you could have a legacy for your children and their children. Why is that I? Say That one. This story. To I need a constant reminder. Of of times gone by and how we shall, we arrived at where we are today. I I I used to go to compose to postcard antique shows, and and now it go and search out the vendors who who sold postcards I I have over a thousand dollars. And back to the point. Tim when you have to put a stay on them. And the one common denominator album all. His derogatory riches of, black folks. Eating order melon, big lips, smiling like we're the subtle. References are influences. By the they. Happy they're not bewildered. Look. Look, look we. We treat him. Good look, they smile. And then they remind me also.

"That's portion of the IVA dream speech delivered in nineteen sixty three at the March on Washington at the Lincoln Memorial. Interesting story about that. So George Raveling kneeled USC basketball coach was a player in the Washington DC area and somebody came to his school. He's a college player, and it can't remember if he went to GW or American University camera which one, but so Raveling was at his school and somebody came by and said, hey, we need some for lack of a better term muscle. We need some big tall guys to stand behind Dr king. So if anyone gets a crazy idea of rushing, the podium, they know that there'd be big guys that they'd have to get through. So the coach of the basketball team said sure I got a couple of guys in one of them was Raveling. So if you watch that speech, you'll see a young George Raveling standing one of the people standing behind Dr king. So the speed. Ends. And Dr king says, you know, free at last free blasts got almighty free at last and walks away from the podium and Raveling notices that the text of the speech is still there. And he's he grabs it, and he says, Dr king, you forgot your speech. He goes go ahead and keep it George. I don't need it. And to this day. You're traveling has it. Well, now, the amazing thing is we have Ravin the show a lot. And he says that the text of the speech is not what you would think. It's not like today. Everybody would put that in a prompter. Right. It was guidelines nuts. I think George said that a lot of I have a dream on the note that he just, you know, took the notes that it was bullet points of what he wanted to mention, and he just winged it and George still hasn't. He's been the Smithsonian been after a lot of people have asked if he'd be willing to sell it. And he's always said, no, he's hanging onto it. And he says when he passes wail handed down to his family, which is kind of a cool that is backwards. Right. All right. So you're going to get into coming up. The ringer which I read every day. Has just written a story. Here's the headline Todd Gurley. The reigning offensive player of the year was out snapped. And outplayed by C J Anderson in Sunday's championship game. He says it wasn't his health. So what happened? We'll get into it next or some theories here that are interesting Mason and Ireland Rams on their win. Is.

And he's he grabs it, and he says, Dr king, you forgot your speech. He goes go ahead and keep it George. I don't need it. And to this day. You're traveling has it. Well, now, the amazing thing is we have Ravin the show a lot. And he says that the text of the speech is not what you would think. It's not like today. Everybody would put that in a prompter. Right. It was guidelines nuts. I think George said that a lot of I have a dream on the note that he just, you know, took the notes that it was bullet points of what he wanted to mention, and he just winged it and George still hasn't. He's been the Smithsonian been after a lot of people have asked if he'd be willing to sell it. And he's always said, no, he's hanging onto it. And he says when he passes wail handed down to his family, which is kind of a cool that is backwards. Right. All right. So you're going to get into coming up. The ringer which I read every day. Has just written a story. Here's the headline Todd Gurley. The reigning offensive player of the year was out snapped. And outplayed by C J Anderson in Sunday's championship game. He says it wasn't his health. So what happened? We'll get into it next or some theories here that are interesting Mason and Ireland Rams on their win. Is. I hope so Super Bowl we're thirteen days away. I can tell you that. Although the station is not really. Divvying up any cash for me to go to the game..

As the human Google for reasons that become abundantly clear. In this interview, he is held head coaching jobs at Washington state, university of Iowa and USC following a prolific basketball coaching career, join Nike at the request of Phil Knight where he played an integral role in signing a reluctant, not many people know that story, Michael Jordan. He's also been inducted in the nice memorial Basketball Hall of fame as well as the college Basketball Hall of fame. We cover a lot in this wide-ranging conversation in Austin, take sass. We cover how he was given the original copy of Dr Martin Luther King junior's. I have a dream speech, which was not the name by the way originally how his practice team ended up beating the nineteen Eighty-four US Olympic Dream Team in basketball. What the story of getting Michael Jordan to sign Nike, y coach RAV has been nicknamed the human Google, his voracious reading habit and how he picks books and takes notes. We had. A huge nerd out over how to take notes in books, the wisdom of his grandmother and other mentors and much much much more. I really walked out of this conversation floating on air and reflecting on and thinking about so much of what he shared. He's an incredibly impressive human being. I hope you enjoy this even half as much as I did, which would mean it's probably going to be one of your favorite episodes that I've done with further ado, please enjoy the ever. Impressive. George Raveling. Coach welcome to the show. Thank you very much. It's.

"In that i tried to fulfill the mission that each parent or relative bestowed on me and and that was to take a young person and help them integrate themselves into society as adults and become responsible adults do you see people getting less of that now or or do you think that it's just happening in a different way i don't a different way in this manner i think that the the the unique opportunity to help a young person take him by the hands and walk them along the path of life and as my grandma's said i know we're all potholes in life or and if you listen to me i can help you avoid some of them the thing that worries me so much today is is that from a basketball standpoint particularly is i think we we've lost our sensory sponsor ability to the whole person i think we spend too much time allowing kids to feel that the greatest values are our money and material and collecting things to me i think the greatest value that you can contribute to young person's life as it is to help them understand the relevance of education i have a huge problem with one and done because i think it'd devalued education there's no question that they're good enough athletically but there's an athletic component there's a spiritual component and and as an educational component and so much talk today vase round getting to a higher level and making large sums of money i always told a players making money is the easiest part keeping it in multiplying as difficult part and and so i worry today if historians aren't gonna treat us adults harshly because we did not embrace.

"Rebounding win basketball games you could have gone anywhere in the country in chief that if you come and we partner up for four years i wanted to be a unique experience i wanted to be more than about basketball i wanted to be more about winning and losing and so i try to create an environment that would allow me to see that i had a broader responsibility to each of these young people than than winning and losing basketball games i remember as you cruden a kid this is when i was coaching at usc and his name was mark boyd he's the only player i've ever coached it started every game for four years and i remember walking out of his house after signing the letter intent hit getting a lot of intent signed by him as mom walked me to the doors a single parent and she looked at me she said coach raveling i don't want no fullish in the saudi you now and i knew what she was saying hey i'm giving you my most prized possession in the whole world and i i'm going to send you a boy and i expect you to send me back a man and i expect you to respect of the values that i've i've instilled in him and so those type of moments helped me understand in a more vivid manner what my ultimate responsibilities were to those young people and like for example everywhere i coached before practice i would always have a five minute talk with the team about something that had nothing to do with basketball at always pass out little articles for them to read and so i wanted this to be a memorable opportunity for them i have one player who told me a couple years ago he said coach he says somewhere my garage i have every hand out you you gave out in the four years of practice and so i can look back and feel good about the relationship i had with my players.
