"All right. Well we lost another great one. Bail hooks has gone to the ancestors y'all. Y'all know when I heard this earlier last week, I was hurt by it. Y'all don't know, Bill hooks is up there with James Bond, but with me, listen, you know, I know Bill hoods be on her own stuff, but when I tell you she was the goat, she's a goat. For those of you who don't know, the tide pod generation, Bill hooks, who's incessant, wide ranging, writing on gender and race, help push feminism beyond its white middle class worldview to employ. Am I coming in too hot? You're like I want to do that. I feel like that's how bill would like it. Oh my God, I wasn't expecting that. I'm not coming into him. No, no, no, no. Hey, do you? I'm just gonna meet myself. That's not a white woman feel, would you come in a room? Basically, basically they help us expand the middle class worldview to include black voices in black people and working class women in the dialog of when we talk about feminism, right? So some of y'all greatest art thriving because Bill had miss hooks, I should say had to literally tear down ceilings and protests and cut niggas out and all the above to get there. She died this past Wednesday in her home in berea, Kentucky. She was 69 years old. Her sister reported that she had end stage renal failure failure. You know, that hurt me. I didn't even know the elders were sick. No one told me. Again, not that I'm entitled to that information, but usually some of our academic and literary elders let you know. Like, you know, you don't hear from me as much, because I'm resting easy. You know, I went on there and I got some splits like on PDFs like her essays and stuff, but honestly I didn't have any books, Chad had to hurry up and order some of them books, but as soon as I was about to hit go y'all beat me to the chase. So starting in 1981 with her book ain't a woman, black women and fibrosis, miss hooks, who insisted on using all lower case letters in her names, argue that feminism claimed to speak to all four all women had pushed the unique experiences of working class and black women to the margins. Where's the lie? Hooks, who was born Gloria Jean Watkins adopted her lower case pen name in honor of her great grandmother, Bill Blair hoots. Idea evaluation of black womanhood occurred as a result of the sexual exploitation of black women during slavery, and that has not altered in the course of a hundred years. Bell wrote, that is one of my favorite quotes for her. I remember being a baby in college, my first year class and reading that sentence over and over again to say, she did not come here to play. Especially her later work, miss hooks, emphasized the importance of community and healing as the ingo of movements like feminism and anti racism. Some critics got shit to say, but we don't give a damn about them right now. It's about doctor hooks. And I agree. I think was always so Bill hooks was so easily digestible to me because her work wasn't filled with a bunch of jargon. Like a lot of black epidemics, a lot of feminist scholars, black scholars, use a lot of jargon, heavy language, and it's hard to wreak their books. Their books are very dense, it's very hard to unpack. But a lot of books you could pick up and you can understand and you can read and you can apply and more so you can really see yourself in them. So I think sometimes I also have a problem with black epidemics because they speak about the black experience, but their work is not accessible to the people as worked. Yeah, because then I started to community that they're truly serving. So what you're doing really. You just talking about white people, like, who are you talking to? But I think Bill never fell into that trope. My favorite books by Bill is, and I want, of course, her first one I came out in the early 80s that we got the quote from, but then all about love. All about love is bomb. I remember rereading that book actually when we first moved out to California. I don't know if you remember that. Rented it, I think? That's when I was in my library book that is. And it was just so, so good. When I read it, one of my absolute faves. RIP, rest easy. Doctor hood, you got anything to say about that to listen until we decide what we bring into the future. She's the goat. She used to go. She is the, you know, the leader of black feminism. Summing our favorites could never. Could never. Pussy hat took who? Not that ain't my favorite. They wish they could. They wish they could. They just out there running around with pussy hats on their head. Speaking of pussy hats, you see what Elon Musk said. What Elon Musk so mean to her? Elizabeth Warren. Elon Musk mean to everybody. He told Barney Sanders, I mean, I just remember he was still alive. Would you bring it to the funeral? Oh my God. I'm gonna bring some peach faygo. This is hard one. I think I'm gonna have to make a homemade peach cobbler. By me, in a big loan ten, and just set it on the corner because it Bill has and I know how I think I'd be knowing from the readings you've done, I'm assuming she gonna have many ceremonies. One that's just quiet and intimate with family. But then I also met you had something for her students and all the folks who appreciated our work. That's who she is. So I'll bring it to the one that be at the student union. I play a peach cobbler for the kids at the student union. Okay. Did I order a pizza? 'cause they gonna stay late they don't know when they leave. They don't. You know how they and students don't know when they don't pick up the cues. So I say I order about ten pieces for the kids. She knows. 'cause she gonna want to hear. She's a girl. Bell hooks. Y'all let us know some of y'all feel bit favorite Bill hits quotes in our books. But our legends. She's going on. So who gonna lead the crusade? Is it gonna take our spot? Oh, can't believe cranshaw? I don't know. Who's the one who wrote when she can come home to roost? That's good question. Let me stop. These holes got roaches. No, that is a real book, which is kind of roaches. Which is also a real book, but not the same type of real book. Don't do that. That is a real movie. What do you say? What'd you call it? The D cells got roaches. When she has come home to roots, a hip hop feminist breakdown has named the book. It is by Joan Morgan. New York thought I was guessing? Yes, I talked to us. So I see you out your black feminist bag. Do I need to buy you some black feminist books for Christmas? Maybe. Because you should know that's a classic one. The near I'm looking up. Now, I don't found him, but his black penis book is these hosts got roaches. This whole government in his creative episode. What is that urban satire? And I got an episode too. Who was this person? Juan mills? Yeah, we all Amazon. Then he got his listen to the name all these Negro bliss and they all have 5 stars. So I said, these hosts got roaches in her crib, episode two, these hosts got roaches in her creative urban satire. I passed a guy a stripper pregnant. 210 reviews, 5 star. What these holes got roaches in their crib episode three, the finale. Oh my God. 5 stars. My baby..

"I mean, somebody's just message in actually Graham says, please stop repeating the myth, about young people being more aware of climate change and environmental issues who takes flights to a beta and Prague, who buys all the ready made food in plastic packaging, and who creates massive churn in the electronic goods market. What do you say to him, Jesse? I think that's a really interesting thought because I think there are a lot of young people who are, you know, really do play into capitalism and play into this these kinds of ideologies of bye bye bye, lots of expensive travel and lying everywhere. But I think there's a huge proportion of young people who are have created this movement, which is bringing climate to the forefront of society. And that's not to say that over the decades has been so many other movements around the environment which have brought so many important things to light and made so much change, but I think the youth movement is now sort of bringing back to the forefront once again. I think it's like a way that kind of ebbs and flows and I think we need a new voice in you unique way of looking at the world to really bring this to light again. Brilliant, Mia, Macy, and Jesse, thank you so much for joining me this morning to talk to me about 8 four 8 four four is the number to text with your thoughts. We will be passing it on to you anyway. So we hope it sounds like the three of you know what's going on anyway. So I feel quite confident in passing on the button to the three of you for sure.

"Developed by gastroenterologists with 20 years of research more at a line probiotics dot com It's morning edition from NPR news a Martinez and Culver City California and I'm Stephen skip in Washington D.C. good morning The drastic increase in coronavirus cases in the United States has largely not been driven by the automotive until now Now it's all around us detected in 36 states just as winter arrives NPR's Allison Aubrey joins us once again Allison Good morning Good morning Steve How quickly is oma cron spreading Very quickly cases can double every two days I think what's happening in Houston Texas right now really sheds light on just how quickly it could take over for the last few months the city has had pretty low levels of COVID the CEO of Houston methodist hospital Merck boom told me they were in good shape after a big Delta surge earlier that last summer But what he has seen over the last several days changes the picture completely We've seen our positivity rates go from about 6% to 20% So there's little doubt that once this is there and spreads it spreads rapidly I mean this is replacing delta in our community at a rate we've never seen And I would expect matter of weeks only before it is all that we're dealing with his own product As of late last night 32% of positive sequenced at the hospital are now uma cron and doctor boom says even if most cases are mild and only a small fraction lead to hospitalization it could still be hard for hospitals to keep up Yeah that's the problem if you have millions of cases over time you could end up with many many thousands who are hospitalized I want to ask about a news item from New York now ethic in New York Cornell University had a quick rise in cases which is going to be of concern to anybody who has somebody that they love on a university campus somewhere What's being done to control the spread Well the university's provost Michael cough told me that they first detected Democrat cases on Sunday They did a bunch of sequencing after noting a steady rise in cases starting a few weeks back Now the campus is 98% vaccinated and almost all of the cases have occurred in fully vaccinated students We've been seeing a 50% rise in cases day over day So Cornell moved final exams online They canceled all social gatherings among undergraduates and they've told students they can go home cut lokhov says they're now seeing the beginning of a plateau because students are now either isolated or they're leaving the campus Our very many students getting sick You know there have been no hospitalizations but remember this is a young pretty healthy population and Michael cutler cough says they are keeping tabs on students who've been infected Almost all either asymptomatic or mild symptoms the majority of students have been asymptomatic that have been detected but we're isolating those students for ten days Clearly they don't want students to go home and spread it to more vulnerable family members or friends Does the experience of the UK in recent days point to where we in the United States might be before long You know we're typically about three weeks behind the UK and what happened yesterday in Britain They reported more than 78,000 new cases of the highest number of infections in a single day since the start of the pandemic The majority of cases in London are now from Omaha and during an afternoon press conference prime minister Boris Johnson announced what he called a jab athon aimed at getting people boosted We're jabbing in hospitals where jabbing in surgeries were jabbing in pharmacies and in pop up centers where jabbing in shopping centers and on high streets in football stadiums we are throwing everything at it And wherever you are will be there with a jab for you You know he's basically saying you're not going to be able to escape the shot Okay so first I'm very much in favor of the word jab athon We should find more ways to use that in the language but is there evidence that the booster shots really do help against this variant You know it's become clear that the vaccines don't offer as much protection against Omaha and that vaccinated people are vulnerable to infection but yesterday during a White House briefing doctor Anthony Fauci outlined some reassuring data from the UK It showed that when people get a third dose a booster shot protection does go way back up Our booster vaccine regimens work when you get the booster It increases to 75% effectiveness against symptomatic disease with a booster dose So their advice is get boosted and when you are out in crowded spaces mask up And Pierre's Allison Aubrey thanks so much Thank you Steve The writer and path setting activist bell hooks died yesterday or home in Kentucky She was 69 years old Bell hooks thought deeply about love what it is and why we need it NPR's Andrew limbong has this appreciation of the scholar We'll get into bell hooks work as a critic and academic in a bit but first I just wanted to read to you some of her poetry This is an excerpt from her book Appalachian elegy then it goes like this Such then is beauty surrendered against all hope You are here again turning slowly Nature as chameleon all life change and changing again Awakening hearts steady moving from unnamed loss into fierce deep grief that can bear all burdens even the long passage into a shadowy dark where no light enters I always think that part of the genius of bell hooks such as It is That's Bill hooks talking about her own writing on a talk show called speaking freely from 2002 Is that I bring together standpoints that are often not brought together in our nation The breadth of her writing was wide and it covered history sex grief religion memory and more So I'm always bringing together diverse ways of knowing Bell hooks was born Gloria Jean Watkins in Kentucky in 1952 Her 1981 book a naia woman became a foundational feminist tech as it clearly laid out the intertwined forces oppressing black women racism sexism classism But her work included her poetry was always imbued with a sense of hope In 2003 she talked to NPR about the importance of being aware of these forces but not dwelling on them Because obviously if we only fixate on any form of oppression or any pain then we really lose sight of the totality of who we are were always more than our pain One of her most popular works was her book all about love And in 2000 she went on used Diane show and explained her definitional problem with love This book is actually dedicated to an ex-boyfriend of mine who was much younger and we found ourselves quarreling again and again about love because we didn't have a shared sense of what we even meant when we talked about the term Like all of her work the book is clear eyed about the systemic hurdles to a loving each other and ourselves But it opens with bell hooks talking about a phrase.

Don't support it because then the day what works Best for us with T V C is voluntary compliance now, he says. There have been more than 26,000 inspections conducted across the state since the start of this pandemic, but only 200 have been flagged for licenses to suspensions. Have not been in any bars is supports bars that are also operating his restaurants through this toe, so then keep the door. Some. I have not experienced that. However I is, is you you was well tied, have been to many, many, many, many restaurants since the very first day that Dinan was allowed again months ago. I was there at Matt's El Rancho the very first night and we have gone every single week to some restaurant. I have not been in one situation at any restaurant at any time where I felt like, Hey, it's a little too close in here. Hey, I'm at risk. I haven't. I haven't come close to that. I do not know what they're talking about was in Jack Allen's up in Ron Raka Saturday night. In It was packed. Yeah, this This was good man. People were you gonna have a good time love everybody keeping the space from each other, of course, And, you know, wearing mask in washing things down. They got all their protocol in place. I have not seen a waiter's face for nine months. I've seen a lot of waiters but haven't seen their faces.

While renters in Austin and Travis County remain protected from eviction landlords continue to carry the load is they are expected to pay their bills each month. It's their hearts. Gloria Jean tells Caixa that her family owns properties locally and She feels some tenants or just taking advantage of the eviction moratorium. I would ask right now is that Travis County Grant of property tax exemption. The landlords like us who have had no other relief through Italy, you know at least the next month, renters paying less than $2500 a month can't be forced to vacate landlords have dealt with the moratorium for almost a year. There you go. I don't know how the landlord you're doing. Yes, man. I got some assistance. But that doesn't you know that that only goes so far, and I have no doubt that unfortunately, you're probably some tenants out there that are taking advantage of this situation. And And that's not good. Well, the rent it doesn't mean it's not going away. It's just racking up yet, Isse. It is and and and there's a lot of folks out there in America that they don't realize that. You know, this could be a big balloon payment eventually, areas and that's you know, unfortunately, a lot of people that look at money that way as far as Yeah, Yeah. You know, I'll pay it. I'm not gonna worry about it. I'll pay it. But the thing is, yeah. It's racking up and and then we're gonna have this other even after we're all free and clear of everything. We're gonna have some folks that got to face the music. What do you think about assigning me pretty well, What do you think about a property tax exemption for some of these lies? And lords that have been floating the note. If you will work for those tenants that can't pay right now, something has to happen because we're gonna have a worse situation that these landlords have to, you know, file bankruptcy themselves or whatever it's gonna be. It's gonna be a domino effect that they are gonna have some. This is of no fault of their own no fault of their own, So would that we've got to help him out. I think eventually this will lead to higher rent prices. Because people were already there. Yeah, I mean, obviously, we're already there. But this will be another thing that jacks up rents. Yeah, there's no doubt about you gotta make the money. That's right. It's gonna be an absolute necessity for these landlords. Torto. Keep the door open. If you will.

That would tell him that there's there's been spread as a result. Well, if that is true that they did spot check 26,000 inspections. That means you are near impossible to get covert inside of our it should be. They say they gave out 200, you know, have been flagged for license suspensions. It's part of Ah, warning if you will, But yes. Oh, there you go. That's that's the message this morning from the T A. B C. I don't think they're honest about the 26,000. It is 8 48. There's also a growing concern in the business community when it comes to not only renters, but the landlord's landlords can carried continue to carry the load you no one expected to pay their bills, you know, at the end of each month, and Gloria Jean tells Kay Xing and that their family owns properties locally, she feels that some tenants are just taking advantage of this eviction moratorium right now is the Travis County. Grant to property tax exemption. The landlords like us who have had no other relief and threw it at least next month. Renters paying less than $2500 a month can't be forced to vacate landlords have, you know dealt with this moratorium for almost a year? I bless their hearts. I don't know how they're doing it that that is a what a burden and and of course, they've gotten some relief. But how far does that go? It's not gonna It's not gonna be enough. There's no no way and I'm sure that there are some tenants. It unfortunately, are taking advantage of that fact that they can't be evicted and maybe abusing that situation. But, man, if we if we start to have landlords that are going to be, you know, filing bankruptcy, and whatever else then we're gonna have a domino effect that it's going to take us a long time to recover from It's not a good scenario at all. And I really, really feel for them. I certainly do so they have not gotten enough help. Yeah, it is. Listen, it is 8 50 here on the tide of Don shows. You know, the city of Boston got a couple of reports when it comes to, you know, racial inequality. Then in the city's got, you know, just a mountain of documents and memos and things like that, In both of these memos describe the Austin Police Academy is being paramilitary or militarized mindset. The sunny concerns from former cadets, one of those reports calls for the city to rebuild the training academy and also implement sweeping structural reforms to the training division. We get the story here from K X A. N n a memo to Austin's mayor and council spanning 152 pages. The city's equity office outlines to reports they're the results of City Council action more than five years ago. Both reports said the department had a quote, militarized training culture and recommended changes. One report advised a PD changes Academy mindset from a warrior mentality to a guardian mentality. We have really improved over the last five years, and I don't think that's Given any credence or acknowledgement in this report, 10 CASS today went through a PD's training academy more than 23 years ago, while cadets interviewed in the report cited times when dehydration symptoms in the academy were ignored. Cassidy believes that's a problem of the past. Yes. The Guardian mentality is very important. But there are those times where you have to be prepared, and you have to have a warrior mentality to protect yourself. In these reports, cadets expressed concerns over secret of testing practices, unsafe physical tests and physical abuse by instructors. The reports also cited shortcomings in the leaderships understandings of equity and includes what point do Our does the department actually want to change. It is that simple. Chazz Moore, who has been advocating for reform in the department, wants to see a PD act on these recommendations. He thinks the reports draw more question to the Austin police connect classes, which have been put on pause. While a separate audit is underway. People are considering having convict classes in The spring of this year. What changes in many his academy is the police department going to bring forth Austin police tells us it is now reviewing these reports, releasing a statement saying, in part, we're actively taking steps toward addressing internal and external inequities in a PT policing. Elissa Gord, Chaotic San knew just just frustrating when you hear stories like this thing, and they never go into detail on And I'm not talking about K X Again story in particular, but the constant critics of the A P D. Never go into detail about specifically what they want and and let's be clear The and all of this data is old data years ago. A lot of changes have happened at a p D. When it comes to training academies, and and I understand the guardian mindsets. I get that That's the way I look at police, but there are times When police have to roll in the streets with real bad s obeys, man. Oh, yeah. And you gotta fight. That's right. And the complaints from what I've noticed and listen, I'm on the outside looking in to the police Academy shirts, the people that have been part of it or police officers on the streets out there no more than me. But from my civilian standpoint, when they started watering down, you know the You know what you need to become. A police office started watering down a lot of the you know that the academy itself. That's when you got a handful of wimps that could not make it couldn't cut it and became complainers. Mm, thinking that it's just unfair. Maybe I'm wrong, But that's just my civilian observation from the outside looking in. Well, I want to know exactly what are they talking about? As far as a military mindset overall Because I perceived when I hear that I'm thinking about that, You know? Are they being accused of wanting to take over the city or they wanting to go to battle? Are they wanting a war? Of course not. But I certainly do You understand that there are times where they probably have to date times. As you pointed out, if they're dealing with really bad people. Yeah, they might have to be in more of that kind of mindset for to keep us.
