Black Gun Ownership Rises Amid Pandemic, Protests For Racial Justice
"A record number of Americans have purchased guns this year including Black Americans from K. N. UNC in northern Colorado Lee. Patterson reports that incidents of violence against people of color have pushed some to purchase guns for the very first time and warning to our listeners. There are sounds of gunfire in this story. What type of gun is? So this is a Smith and Wesson nine millimeter shield cat trailer bought her handgun this past spring these as she practices at an indoor range with her husband like it's no big deal. But talking through her mask trailer describes how she felt the first time she pulled the trigger is beyond terrified shaking. Hands were sweaty. Trailer is a democratic political consultant who lives in Colorado. At first, she was nervous cleaning and shooting her new gun. And she had a bad experience, the first range she went to she says people were staring she felt unwelcome. Still regardless of the anxiety I had around. All those things. I got into this because I feel like it was necessarily trailer I started thinking about buying a gun when she saw empty grocery store shelves at the beginning of the pandemic. Then she watched racial justice protests unfold across the country. She started thinking about pushback from people who disagree with those efforts if it looks like communities, of Color and people that support communities of color are rising up against white supremacy that could be a problem for us is. It's probably time probably time for them to buy guns a thought that many other Americans have also had in. August. Alone people bought one point eight million firearms according to industry estimates a trade group called the National Shooting Sports Foundation reports the gun sales to customers have grown more percentage wise than for any other racial or ethnic group. With. Her New gun trailer wants to feel like she has a chance during a home invasion or an encounter with police. What we as the family had to determine is, how do we WANNA die? Instead of look at it that way. DO WE WANNA die not being prepared or at least trying to protect ourselves. That's how you weigh that as part of becoming a new gun owner trailer joined the National African American Gun Association Philip Smith is the founder nationally across the board from all over every state. We have people joining all times a day night. You know I I thought something was wrong with computer. Smith was watching membership numbers rise after the death of George Floyd may but black people have been using guns for hunting and protection for a long time historian say that Harriet Tubman carried firearms so did the Black Panthers in the nineteen sixties these days according to a Gallup poll released last year nineteen percent of black people own guns. Smith says his members are not monolithic. Some women join because they've been sexually assaulted some women join because they wanNA teach you some men join because they want to just get really good at self defense people are joining now for different. Reasons some want to support the National African American Gun Association Financially Smith says for others it's more spiritual I. Think people were looking for a home a place where you can kind of event you can belong where you felt your mind having a relief of some sort Bruce Tomlin a truck driver who lives in New Mexico describes his decision to buy a gun response to stress. I'll just say amounting society He felt that way after watching cellphone video showing the death of Ahmad arbitrary a black man who was shot while jogging through neighborhood in Georgia earlier this year don't. Go around arm the rest of my life. That's because he's been feeling under attack for years after the two thousand, twelve killings of Trayvon Martin, for example, and after the mass shooting at a black church in Charleston in two thousand, fifteen by a white supremacist goes like I can just be mine them all business. And if somebody who's a racist, just decide to roll up on me gun meet down. As is decided that like if I go out I'M GONNA go out shooting back. But now that he's an actual gun owner, it's not so straightforward day to day of feel like I can defend myself better defend my loved ones. But I usually get comfortable having it sometime he does not want to kill or injure anyone open carry makes them nervous I would never take my gone to the grocery store and carry around inside or anything like that. But on the other hand I could be in a situation where needed still out in the car or whatever I just like knowing that I have it gun ownership is complicated for Tomlin especially because he's black if he was stopped by police says, he probably wouldn't tell them that he had a gun. And catch trailer says the same thing giving the example of philander casteel he was shot during a traffic stop for years ago in Minnesota after telling an officer that he had a firearm, his car casteel did have a permit to carry it. Cat Trailer believes that gun cost him his life we're not given a fair shake when these conversations are happening automatically worsen tensions are assumed just because we're black, we're gun owners for both of these new black gun owners. It's an identity that comes with risks, but does make them feel safer for

Voting Mechanisms And AI
"Steven Hi I'm professor RTP OF MATHEMATICS AT USC University of Southern California Excellent, and tell me a little bit about your general interest within mathematics. Before we get into the particular paper, I wanted to talk to you about a few different topics generally speaking probability probability generally construed its relation to computer science in particular theoretical computer science. Would we wind up somewhere near what is it Polynot mealtime? Generators. I don't know about a number. Generous. Followed meal time things more specifically clavo problem that can't be solved in polynomial time, and then you WANNA approximated solution in USA. How well can approximate? How can I prove that? This is the best. You can do things like that under the general category of hardness of approximation suppose why knowing lot of those cases you have one benefit may be many but benefiting a lot of problems. Like that is you can tell if a solution is valid or you have some function you're trying to optimize for I. Don't know if the same is true in voting. Is there a global way that we'd all agree that the outcomes are good or the processes? Good. Maybe that's a good way to get into your topic designing stable elections. Exactly. I mean there's a lot of A. Link to Wikipedia Pedia page somewhere it's a table and it has a list of desirable properties voting methods and there's at least maybe ten or twenty cents properties and it's impossible to have all the desirable properties no matter which voting method you have there's always gonna be some that has some that a dozen but the one property that myself and many other people who focus is how can the voting method be protected from corruption and that could be mostly what people in this community of worked on is looking at random vote corruption. So everybody cast their vote and then Tyson with some small probability they will randomly. Change some votes, and then the question is which method best preserves the election's outcome. So that's the quantity that you want to say maximize. You want to maximize the probability that the voting method preserves the outcome. When you compare the original outcome to the outcome after the votes have been corrupted one quantity, you can try to maximize very interesting. I definitely want to come back and talk more about corruption but you've got me intrigued with those properties and I know there's many of them may be I don't WanNA put your memory test, but could you talk about one or two and maybe discuss you know a Controversy around them or why they're important that sort of thing. Yes. There's a bunch one desirable property of voting method is that it doesn't succumb to the spoiler effect as we know, the Electoral College does. So how can we think about this spoiler effect the main let's change the names to some ancient name. So we don't have to deal with political of discussion in the moment, but let's say we ran election whatever two hundred whatever years ago, and there's George Washington running, and there's also a clone of George Washington running as candidates and I some third candidate on the. Fact factor means the fact that two of these clone George Washington running while people who originally if there just one George Washington, they'll just vote for that first one but two of them you'd imagine you know the original George Washington Supporters A. Vote First Josh Attendance on my vote for Evil George Washington or whatever you call the second one. So the fact that the original supporters of the person gets split between the two separate candidates we know an electoral college that means that it decreases the chance of either one of them winning, and for example, I think a last election cycle Bloomberg said, I'm not gonNA run as an independent because of this effect, you can steal votes away from someone in a sense and it can. Ruin the chance of say some candidate that may be you kind of support or something. So that's a desirable property of voting method that some of them have and some of them don't doesn't have the spoiler effect. That's that's what you are. There mechanisms than the can eliminate things like that. How do we build something like that into voting framework one voting method that avoids this it's become popular to certain people you know on the perfect voting with, but it's called instant runoff voting so. Different than what we're used to thinking about your vote is no longer just your favorite candidate. It's like a ranked list of candidates like for example on. Once going back two hundred years or something maybe your first choice most preferred candidates George Washington may be your second most preferred candidate is out in. Alexandria. Hamilton third most preferred candidate Harriet Tubman or something I don't know every single person makes list of preferred candidates and they all get submitted into whatever the election methods, which is song way of taking all those votes and just saying, okay, here's the winner and so one I think mentioned already one. Popular ranked choice voting method is called instant runoff voting on I believe it's used in Australia might even be used this coming election cycle in I'm not entirely sure but anyway so the important thing is this voting method does not have these spoiler effect

"harriet tubman" Discussed on Is The Mic Still On
"The woman of the people here are once again. It was out of touch and distasteful distasteful. I really appreciate Hueys. Poignant perspective I always respected the umbrella. You officially made me a fan of yours for to catch it. A bone low mid. Yeah that's oh sesto and COA shot at the Coke. But you know yeah. Yeah so my little comment about Producer by Africans elicited a lot of responses. They was these hot. Coa Kid said that as for the N. Word I can't speak for the entire continent but I don't think people use it like black Americans use it. It might have become popular among young people with influence from American hip hop. And I think you said that. Something about he'll pop May Have caused the people to use it a little bit more. So that makes sense He says he know. For fact that South African rappers used the word and assaults and he heard through an interview that they use the word from time to time as Buddy Palo me etc But I really doubt the word is used like that. I not the entire continent speak English going to stand it. In many places they speak other languages languages like French Portuguese out of the languages and dialects finally Africa's don't like black America's honestly. I don't know if it's really true. I read a lot of things on the Internet and I guess my comment Whatever copy dimple the copy but But yeah so he was one another guy where is his saw? He replied them. Mike Yeah I mean he was he was nice about it but the basically what his bro- broke down to if you can't find it basically what his broke down to was not every single African Xyz. And I his comment was fine. I respect his comment again. He was he was perfectly respectful. But my issue with that is. I would think that most people would have the sense to say if when Ken said well. You know. Africans don't really like African Americans. It seemed like it would be really like playing fairly obvious that can does not know every single fucking African on the of Africa. Ken was clearly not saying. Every single African from Africa dislikes African Americans he was stating Allah but words his mouth but it seemed like he was saying that in his experience slash. What he has heard is this And that was my stance. Well I I know other Africans besides I know we messed with nick but I mean I know people that are actually like from there. That didn't grow up in the United States and they've told me this I was told me that I had a conversation with Kim about it because I was seeing on reddit thread as well and what he was saying. It is on that line as far as like some Africans view African Americans as far as you are complacent. Yeah you you. Can't you don't understand the the opportunities you have here and when we come over here we'd car well we just we. They've they take advantage of everything. This country has to give right right. So yeah yeah and it was a a brother with a thought so and I replied to them and I appreciate it but you know overall sound like he basically wanted to leave a pulse and not all Africans. He was basically doing that. Not all men all women not all white people are racist type thing and you know what Mike said is spot on Obviously I would think that I'm definitely speaking from people that I have had this conversation with And just to make sure when I saw the comments from people. I said all right. Let me just make sure that I'm not too off based on what I said That I so I went and had a conversation We'll have my wife reach out Someone she knows That's that's from South Africa and her husband. I think is is Kenya or from Uganda. One or the other and Yeah basically confirmed. Say everything just just as I wouldn't have said and even more so And you know it's just like you know we. We don't take advantage of opportunities here. We've become complacent mazing lazy Every single thing. And we've we've been traditions. And and what was the site of culture like all this one of the reasons why I think that happens is like not my generation of like second-generation Africans are first generation Africans in America but like our parents who emigrated. They watch a lot of news so they and they round the clock pretty much so what they see they get instinct and also the most of them are also in some black black communities as well too so they look at their surroundings from like a people. Watching standpoint is like this is really how act and they make judgments off now again. Obviously no not all of them. But I've been around enough to know like all right. There's certain like the crazy part. He's like I would've never thought that until you know. I have a sister-in-law that's from Ghana. And you know. I've sat down and talked to her and I'm like really that's how Africans really think about black people in America and I would have never known so. We have one two three four people in this room that have stated that they've sat down and that's not again. That's not to say that every African now but it's like from all of our experiences that's what Africans have said the people that are from these places yes right or like North Africa. You know they don't think this way central. I don't know I'm badge. Breath Donna is I just know. Africa can be another thing about the N. Word thing as far as Africans you using it. There's a good Hulu show Rami Really he's Egypt Shen and there's episode where he talks about the use of the N. Word and like 'cause like from 'cause I've had conversations about with other black people as far as like Africans using N. Word and do they. Should they even be able to because that is really from black culture it what it is from black culture and it's a unique experience and and for unless you really. It's I don't know for me I'm half and half because I feel like I grew up in in this country and stuff and I've been called nickels before too so it's just like I don't know if it's more based off of experience or location because you know some people were just like we're not from here. So how are you gonNA use that term and I guess the the allergy if you say never but I guess When I said that I was speaking from the from from the perspective of if the people that do look down on or have elitist attitude towards black Americans Have that feeling then. They definitely wouldn't want to start incorporating that word into the language because they don't associate they don't look that way so that wasn't to include young Africans that listen to hip hop and stuff like that. That was just those that kind of separate themselves from black Africans. I mean black Americans. So that's where that comment was coming from. When I said that you got anything to say. Don't get yeah If not it's going to happen. How do we control? Who Uses this term? You know like 'cause I've seen a lot of different people use it I think sound like such an adult but With rap music it tends to go hand in hand with rap music. That's your primary of music that you're listening to. I noticed that that term comes hand in hand you know even with you know some of my Asian friends. Who are you know they dress like urban? I guess you can call it hip hop around like that you know and that amongst themselves they use that term and you know I. I never really paid attention to it until one day. I kind of heard I heard them without being kind of around and how they speak to each other and they use it and they used it and it's just you know eye opening like yeah. They're they're cool and everything like that but who's allowed to use it and who's not because we're you guys are talking about even black people that's just from not being. I feel like I'm definitely not saying that. We're not just to put that out for me. It's like I feel like that's a fight. Where like all right if we get if we get everybody else to stop using it and then we get to. Then that's a conversation but then you're gonNA come at Black People at this point. I know right. There's a priority list at least from getting about that once again. Don't understand racial dynamics where power structure just like. We talked about last week. I don't see how Africans would have any sort of power advance over an african-american especially if you're in the United States were at that point were based on the same level So why would get offended by an African saying what up Nigga anymore than I would get offended by using what up Nigga or being negative? It doesn't make any sense. I just feel like you're then just trying to create an argument. Nick was spot on his fuck. Once we get past white folk saying it and that Kinda Shit then we can discuss Africa's but until then y'all cut dish it out y'all can say Nigga all you fucking I don't care I don't say it myself and in daily conversation so I'm not really one to have like a moral stance or whatever but I'm not finished trip over. No African saying what up Nigga Fuck Outta here. I got bigger shifting. You mad about yeah either and you know. You're a rapper and black and in Africa it makes sense to me. You can save more than I. Can they really feel like you? More checking off boxes. I mean they've gone through their own you know they've gone through through a.

"Because they will go to another NATO. He's seriously like right outside of Breitbart right down the street from projects to dudes walk him and they just literally just I saw them come out the KFC or whatever the case is just walking and they pulled over the plane playing cop car not a unmarked car jumped out and told these boys to pull everything out the pockets and stuff like that and it was just because they were walking with girls too so I'm sure they probably just how you know hanging out with girls and you get a random car just pulled up on jumps out and you know you gotta empty your pockets and things like that and that's just going to increase with this but then there was a thing about the whole stop and I. I watched the documentary awhile ago. So I can't even really properly quote it and you say but They were saying that a lot of the fence that they got were. Because things that you were able to keep concealed on you became public once your pockets once. They came out of your pockets. And that's how they were able to pin a lot of stuff on you exactly with that. Stop and Frisk. So they were using that hand in hand they having that crowded was the do Dana committed. Suicide Oh the garage. He was kind of like a product. Could end on the product of that could also add. Oh you like this is crazy. If they're using it to solve crime I'm cool with it. I know but now is stop and Frisk was them trying to prevent future crimes. No and if they try to do that then can. That's not. That's not what they said they were saying. Stop and Frisk a lot of them. Were using that to say oh we had some break ins over here. So we're going to say. Stop and Frisk because we think you might fit the description of the person that in this house and we have no description we just we have no restrictions. GonNa stop and Frisk is a black. So we're going to be going to auto black kids around weed gonNA stop and Frisk right so I mean it's only going to increase if people are cool with this facial recognition shit. I don't trust no white. Do Black people face because they think all of us look like anyway? This is N. P. has been we've seen and you'd think they gonNa do they gonNA treat this Shit Great? I don't trust them all out. Trust they ask just have you heard about this. Seen the trailer home call though I wanna see it. Yeah Okay so if this movie. And it's basically about. They go around and they kidnap deplorables. Okay so basically people that. Vote for trump okay. They remember when Hillary Clinton call them deplorables and gotten whatever so they kidnapped these people and then quote unquote elite liberals hunt them down and kill them so as surviving the game. But it's kind of shoe reversed so this is a movie that was gonNA come out. Sorry who am I Paul dozen to and it got. It got cancelled all right. Even trump tweeted about it He was like you know liberals think they're elite but they're not really. The elite liberal. Hollywood is racist all right so the movie got cancelled but recently day decided that they're going to go ahead and release it. They did Redo the trailer a little bit. They took out certain words. I remember when I came to. Yeah like originally it did. I'm pretty sure it did say deplorables in the they were on it because he had a lot of controversy and backlash when it first came out. And that's why they had. They took it I was wondering I just scrapped it all. It reminded me of like that movie. The interview with us Seth Rogan and basically. They were like pretend to kill the Who's this Guy Corrine? Corrine the leader And they yeah. They took that movie out of the theaters. I think and they just had to put on Netflix. Because it was like they were like you if you put this out there. We're going to do something about it so it reminded me of that situation. As far as like more focus is like fighting. Back against it so yeah. I was surprised that it came out. It was coming out again. They notice that a lot of changes in the trailer. I'm not surprised. Only because look that controversy was the best thing that could happen to that movie? I saw trailer I was like I'm not watching this stupid. But now that everyone has flipped or shit about it including the fucking president of the United States. There's nothing better that could have happened for this movie because it's probably not good. Yes Hilary Swank in it win an action character and the trailer looks fucking Wack anyways like jumping over the fucking counter. Shooting people look stupid. Am I going to go see it now? Absolutely because now I'm curious and the funny thing about all of this is not only with trump tweeting about how. It's wrong that this movie is being made someone who tweeted out that video of like remember the video where his face was put over a killer and people know nobody remember. Kim Does so that's fine For someone like him to be like. Oh this is too far. This is too far but it also shows how stupid stupid stupid stupid allow these. Republicans are because when you watch the trailer. They're the they're the good guy I was gonNA say. Yeah they're the liberals are bad guys because I'm sure at the end of movie. The deplorables are GonNa be the ones that have to fight back and win so I'm so confused by this whole situation but I can't wait this movie now. Yeah I think just people that just like trump you know cozy always talking about some bad. He's more shit comments on pop culture more than actually is jobs. But Yeah I'll I'll watch it man. I'll be interested even even now more than before. I haven't even. I didn't even know about it but hearing you talk about it makes it interesting to go see this and I wonder what would the response be? Once they find out that they were actually the good guys the will the trailer shows it. You've got to think about it if the trailer lock and step with him though right so if he says it's bad you won't even go look at the trailer. They relied yet as bad. Y'All heard about this horrible. They were complained before trump. Even got a hold of it from what I remember okay. There was already backlash from Republicans about the movie and when I saw the trailer I was like I get. You're thinking Oh this is going to cause more violence because Democrats. Now I get your that dumb to think that's GonNa Happen. But they were saying that it was portraying deplorables in a certain manner. But I'm like why looks like they're portraying y'all as the good guys and they're saying Liberal Democrats are so evil that they're going to kidnap you. Put you in a field and kill you. So it seems like the Democrats will be the ones being mad about this not the fucking Republicans and I guess the funny thing about that is that the Republicans would have won awards counter. Sorta doing anything anyway was putting lock in camps and Shit. Well you know weren't hunting them with you. Know they weren't honey. We don't know but they could again speak you know but But yeah and then you know we all we know about the congressman got shot. So maybe I don't even know if they were thinking about that kind of his name now. the one planning a baseball game. Yeah so maybe they were thinking about that. I doubt it. That's just a good thing to say to get people on your side or You know against it but either way. Very interesting When does it come out March? I think years either March April frames per second fairly the quality of the Film Academy of Crawl. That's why I knew like you know. Man Tight tight. I'm not going to high expectations but with the with the So much hype it. Yeah I WANNA see you. Yeah and it's called what it's called the hunt hunt. It looks like trash it really does. It does not look like it's going to be a quarter to thirteen. Yeah Friday the thirteenth. I remember that they said that in the trailer for the thirteenth. It'd be something I mean with all the hype about it now. Then yeah they reason. Why like yeah? They told their poster now says like is nothing but quotes from Republicans are saying. This movie shouldn't be made. The entire poster is just that that smart. So it's so I mean I kind of wonder if the whole thing was bullshit by by yourself probably just made the whole thing up and then when trump tweet about they're like Oh this is perfect all right? Well that's going to do for topics this week. We're going to jump into our common commentary and pass might segment after this quick break. Hey everyone this Boy Nikki do say AKA MR.

She went on vogue say bad things about a culture that she eats from. And then it's a lot of other stuff Tom Bro- but yeah S where he said then Still Free Audio to said that. I don't WanNa make this facts. Only but it's one of the more lighthearted ones bossing lows may actually cause more damage in the long run than bare knuckle Bautzen. He gave us an article on the dangers and he said my main takeaways. How gloves allow more forced to be blown to the head. So brain damage is often seen from boxing. Gloves rather than the bare knuckle boxing at you and Ron said that right yeah. Yeah but the thing is like you're entering like a fight is typically one thing right so boxes that do this professionally like you're constantly getting ahead You know so he worse that's why you have the stats that you have okay so I was wrong.

"Talk about. Did you know that. Harriet Tubman actually served in the military was the first woman to lead an armed expedition. Shen no most people's don't it's left out of the story and in some ways we have to ask the question. Why don't we talk about that? Why is that not in most history textbooks and in some ways it speaks? It's against everything else. We know about Tubman right. If we don't have someone killing people with guns and she's just kind of peacefully leading people through the forests to Pennsylvania then that creates a certain kinds of euro that works in an American errative. But then when you have a black woman who still enslaved literally when and she goes down to South Carolina still a fugitive. Technically she is asked by the governor of Massachusetts sets. How about you help the Union troops if anybody's going to be a scout if anybody's GonNa have the wherewithal and the knowledge to be able to learn the terrain and move about without detection? It's you and she agrees she agrees to do it. She goes down to South Carolina with the intention of being a scout and spy and of course at first when she gets there. That's not the job given to her. She's given this sort of traditional the jobs that were given to women helping with distribution of food and of she becomes a nurse and her time as an enslaved person knowing about medicinal roots. And what have you. That became really important because medicine was always in short supply. It wasn't until sort of a little bit later. Her Time in in South Carolina where she was given permission to go do what Harry did and she had won over the sort of local folks and she gathered information of course from enslaved and free black people in South Carolina enough so that in June innovate sixty three. She leads the combined he river read. This is my favorite part of the story. I mean to think about a woman who's slightly lightly over five feet tall right in charge of a military expedition. That have they figured figured out where the torpedoes have been placed strategically along the river. How do they know this well? They get information from enslaved people who are around because because they're the ones who planted the tuxedos right and they make their way under the cloak of darkness and they pull up there. There's a confederate stronghold there and by the time dawn breaks union troops are there and this is a sort of important victory for the Union but it's also important because it's a moment when tubman literally emancipates between seven and eight hundred P.. A poll there. Seven eight hundred people enslaved who are still living behind confederate lines who are planting rice. The one of the most dangerous and difficult forms of agricultural labor and she comes and they emancipate them they bring them to the Union troops and so when people ask well. Oh how many people did come in really set free. You add those. I mean we're looking at close to a thousand when you're talking about seven eight eight hundred there and this this part of the story. It's traumatic because they arrive. They start stat these bombs attacking the confederacy and enslaved people. See what's going on and come running toward her right right and she says. This is one of the most amazing sights that I have ever seen in my life. Dyke can you they. You know it's literally believe it's dawn so it's still it's June in South Carolina and men and women who were enslaved or preparing to start their day harvesting rice that of course means wading through marshy waters Dealing with the mosquitoes that carry malaria just with extremely hot temperatures. And they're prepared for another day. Day of backbreaking labor and they look up and they see men and Harriet tubman dressed dressed in blue. They knew what blue uniforms meant. At that point they couldn't breathe couldn't right but they knew what the men in blue who they were and it was that moment they realized this is our this is our chance. This is our opportunity to take freedom. You know so clearly league Harry and opens the door for them but they had to take it. I think we have to remember that to their some who could have been too frightened to you know what will happen. If if this doesn't work out my owner would be mad. What have you? But they had to have the wherewithal to taken and they did and Tubman later later on says in her in her recollections. She says that one of the saddest things about that moment was that she couldn't fit everyone. On the boats the boats were full. They were brimming over and they started to to move away from the shores and they had to leave people there and these people are crying gene and they're basically saying let me come. There's no room and she has to assure these folks there will be other boats. We promise we will come back Jack. You won't be left here but she. She talks about that moment and of course she must have thought about the sisters that she lost to the slave trade right that she lost Three sisters who were sold when she was a young child into the cotton belt of the nation who she never saw again and it was that moment that reminder of you know what does freedom the main if slavery sits right by it. What does her freedom mean? And so while this was kind of joyous occasion there it was also it was also tempered by knowing. She couldn't take everyone. She goes on to purchase property. How did she searches property? Do we know how much it cost. And how does she treated uh-huh in her older years she revered people. Say Oh my God. This woman did all the stuff or was the history of forgotten until she does. Yeah I think we know so much about life or we at least talk about ten minutes live up to the civil war and then it's almost like she disappears like that's the end of life when no no. She lives another half a century. So it's you know those years are also really important when we think about who tubman was then. Tubman Davis became right during her time on the underground she did to start a kind of small speaking circuit. You know it's kind of like I think about this as a as a writer as a professor. You know my my side. Hustle was going around and given talks. You know what you do when you get a little money when you do these talks. And that's what I needed to do to raise funds especially as is the fugitive slave law made things much tighter more difficult to move around. She couldn't move around An anonymity people knew new. She was so new England in New York. She's out on on the lecture circuit and people in Abolitionists New England. They knew she was. And so William seward who was a senator. He was abolitionist West. He basically offered her a parcel of land and a home for a very very cheap price was twenty five dollars something like that at several hundred dollars. She made a twenty five dollar deposit. Do we know how much like how many acres she had. Yes she was. It was multiple multiple acres. It was actually more than one. Structure was a home. Barnes enough acreage. That would allow her to later on. Grow Food for sale later on so it was significant is in New York this is a New York in upstate. New York and so so. She basically set up shop in Auburn New York. DOC which was sort of smart place geographically for Tubman to be. There were lots of abolitionists assists in that area so there were some relative safety because she's still a fugitive right. It's an eighteen fifty nine eighteen sixty. The war hasn't even begun. When and this offers is made to hurt I and at this time she's going back and forth between Canada where she's shuttled many of her family members? Yes and friends too so that they are really the only place where fugitives were safe. The long arm of American law could not reach. They're so she's going back and forth between Auburn New York Canada New England and she's making these Giving his talks making these presentations making a little money and this is how she ends up meeting. Really well known. People like Frederick Douglass. Klis right like sojourner truth like people that has mind blowing to think about Harriet. Tubman Frederick Douglass and the sojourner truth like having a conversation you imagine what that sounded like what would that conversation have been lady he sucked I know. Tell me about a girl job. Those fugitives off in my house and help them get together and actually actually did happen. So because Douglas was living in Rochester. New York. At the time. There's this moment where Harriet Tubman brings uh-huh a large number of fugitives and around the same time Douglas's talking about how like eleven fugitives end up on his doorstep in Rochester and he helps ferried see them to Canada. So they're like working together. They're they're on this underground together. They are activists. And what's really interesting when we think about about Douglas talks about Harriet Tubman later on in life when her recollections were Written down in in the form of her narrative Douglas actually gave comments about her and he talked about how they were both fugitives chiefs right but that his life was one that had been out in the public with all of these accolades and with attention and vein that came within and the only thing that Tubman got was perhaps a hug and the love and the respect from the people. She ferried to freedom that she was behind the scenes but she was doing the work of freedom they both were just in very different ways so he spoke highly of of Tubman but it also reminds us of how the work of what we would call can a nineteen. Th Centuries Social Justice Justice activism was being done differently by different people. Someone like Douglas. WHO's the most photographed man of the nineteenth century? And then someone like Mike Tubman. Who is who had to be unknown for a while? You He makes me wonder. How many trips to the south did? She make that. We don't know about you know. Surely she didn't Brag about all all of them right. I mean she couldn't were the people the people who she rescued are they lost to history. Are they making their Own Proclamations of leg. This woman changed my life. Our family's life right. Very few people called. Harriet tubman out by her. The name in part because the you know sort of a once a fugitive. You're always uncertain about your surroundings. Even when the war is over right so her family members for for instance. They changed their last name. They're not you know they change. They become the Stewart. Family and many enslaved people do that because they're fugitives. They don't want to be found or traced and then to call someone out like Harriet tubman would basically once again put her life in danger but we do know that she rescues so many people sends them to to Canada. And even to this day. There's a good number of tubman descendants who live in the New York area who live in the Maryland area As as well as those who are connected to her in Canada and Saint Catharines Canada. Just to expand The Lens a a bit. We had a nickel head Jones here recently. She talks about America as a slave off crecy and end the continued links and connections and legacy of slavery that infects almost everything everything in America. Is that how you see it..

"People think they know Tubman. Did you know that Harriet Tubman actually served in the military was the first woman to lead an armed expedition if left out of the story when she goes down to South Carolina still L. A.. Fugitive technically she is asked by the Governor of Massachusetts. Go Down and help the union troops. She agrees he's to do it. She goes down to South Carolina with the intention of being a scout an aspiring and she gathered information of course from enslaved enslaved and free black people in South Carolina enough so that in June of eighty six thousand three. She leads the combined he river read. This is a sort of important victory for the Union but it's also important because it's a moment when many literally emancipates twenty seven and eight hundred heap hall. Harriet Tubman is one of the most extraordinary people in American history in the eighteen. Hundreds at a time in many people were debating whether or not Americans should be able to own and sell people. Tubman was run up on plantations crabbing enslaved people and whisking him up north to freedom. I watched the recent bio-pic about her called Harriet. So powerful and I was so moved. I almost cried during the montage entourage. When she was walking in with group after group of freed slaves people? She had rescued with her guts. Guile ingenuity strength courage her knowledge of how to get from the south to the north undiscovered enter deep faith in God. Harriet who almost made it onto the twenty dollar bill until trump said nope is a well known figure. But there's a lot of people don't know about her during the civil war. She was a spy for the Union army. Who led a raid that freed over for seven hundred people in one night? She's an amazing woman. Who seems like a superhero plus Olympic decathlete level athlete plus US mental level genius? Who could lead all these missions freeing all these people and never losing one? She was a woman of deep faith. Who relied on on God and gave all the glory to him? I learned that and much more from rutgers Professor Erica Armstrong Dunbar. Who wrote the new book? She came aim to slay on her teaching Tubman for years. If you want to know everything about one of the most inspiring and important Americans ever this is a good would place to start is professor. Eric Armstrong Dunbar. Talking about the amazing. Harriet Tubman on Taurus show. Why did you WanNa read a book about Harriet Tubman? Now it well. It actually wasn't i. I wasn't sort of sitting with this I want to write a book about Tubman. It I teach tubman. I've taught Tubman for years. All my work focuses on black women enslaved women in particular but enslaved and free and so my editor Don Davis who's fantastic and she you know was connected with Del Martin Cheese and others who we knew the film was going to be coming out and she said Erica. What do you think about doing something something that is accessible is by graphical is Also aesthetically interesting and to have it come out around the time of the film and I was like well. I just wrote a book about a fugitive woman And that fits in my wheelhouse and I know a lot about Tubman so okay and then it was up to me to sort of think about how how I wanted to modernize tubman how I wanted to bring someone who think about as someone who lived a long time ago and bring her make her more current modern connect to her and I you know I sort of remind my students yes. I remind people that tab lived a really long life and she died in nineteen thirteen like. She died in the twentieth century. So although she was enslaved like you know my grandmother was alive in nineteen thirteen right so That was really. That was the beginning of of thinking about writing about Tubman and then it was up to me to figure out how to make her someone that nineteen year olds would want to know about well. Let's try to at least I make her a little more real from the research that you've done What sort of person was she like if we were to meet her would she be like what would be? What would you be like? I think Tubman was like most people in that she changed over time. Sure right and I think think we're used to seeing an image of Tubman. An older woman head covered can never smiling hands clasped And that's the image that we've often used teaching tab men in highschool or sending school. is she not smiling. Because the and the photography of the time it took a long time so you didn't smile or because she was bitter and tough and or maybe all of the above I think photography in the nineteenth century people did not what's Mile that's a very twentieth century cheese. That's the twentieth century. Nineteenth Century people were not smiling for especially for these formal formal photographs. Photography doesn't become kind of super popular until the middle of the of the nineteenth century. The other other piece though is that Tubman. She had some dental issues as well as most people did in the nineteenth century and it actually just wasn't sort of seen as respectable to do anything else but kind of have this Sincere solemn luck so we should did not take that as evidence of her personality. I think we can take it as evidence of her seriousness. Because the one one thing that I think runs true for her throughout her lifetime was that she was sort of about the business day. One I'm like. Is She not a bitter person or is she an optimistic person. She's deeply optimistic. And the optimism museum was centered in her religion. She was a very religious woman and she really attributed her time on the underground railroad as an her success on the underground railroad. She attributed all of that to God. She never took credit like yeah yeah. I went thirteen times to barrel end and rescued people from the jaws of slavery. It was never her. She was an instrument of God so she was optimistic. There's a moment in her life prior to the civil war and she's having conversations with other abolitionist activists activists who are saying you know slavery is never going to end their. That's never gonNA happen here. We're going to have to leave this nation and Tubman responds. It's not true I've seen it. She had these visions. I've seen it. Our people will be free and she carried that optimism and even after the war after slavery was abolished and life was really difficult for black people. She still held onto onto that optimism. I mean there's a tremendous selflessness in I have gotten my body to freedom I'm GonNa go back and again and again and risking life and limb and who knows what and I mean right. I mean that's I mean this extraordinary gesture. Yeah it's it's almost unbelievable. She Harriet Tubman never learned to read a right and and but she did tell her story her memoir To a novelist later on in her life and she talks about the first moment that she escapes in eighteen forty nine when she makes it to the Pennsylvania border and you would think that this moment you know. Here's this woman who has lived through some of the most tragic traumatic doc difficulties of slavery. And you'd think okay here. She is walking into Pennsylvania a free and I'll use air quotes on that Free State state right and she almost immediately thought to him asked for more meaning. This isn't enough for me me to be free. It isn't enough for my body to be free. What does freedom mean? If my entire family is still enslaved what does freedom the mean. If I enter into a city like Philadelphia and I know no one and it's not enough for me to be. My freedom doesn't matter if everyone everyone I love is still enslaved and really from that moment. She makes us decision a very conscious decision to go back and get all of them and what is so incredible. Almost unbelievable his that she does it. yeah. She seems superhuman human. And the I'm not GonNa ask you to compare the movie to reality but the movie does again put up this notion. Ocean of this is a superhuman person. WHO's traversing many many many miles over and over at night in the winter? I mean issue superhuman and more specifically can you be specific about. How did she make make it? You know from the south to the north and back like wh physically is she doing to be able to make it and not get caught and to have have enough food for the body to be able to go on in these super long journeys and all of that I think you know when you when you think about about the totality of it. You can't help but think okay. is she a little superhuman. How how different is or was Harriet? Tubman and yes. Yeah she she you know I. I'm also I'm hesitant to categorize her as such because I do think black women in particular are Thought of as almost super human rights at the that we don't feel paying the same mm kinds of ways that we can carry burdens and work and And we'll be okay And so there's a little bit of that that kind of seeps over into the Harriet tubman narrative but in reality. I mean this was a woman who in my book I talk about. How the violence of slavery and the difficulties of slavery in many ways kind of primed her to do do this difficult work of the work of freedom right so she was someone as a child ripped away from her parents at the age of five? She's forced to go and work for someone else in the so. We're talking about child. Who doesn't isn't yet have her adult teeth right taken from her mother? Her father was living Ten miles away they were owned by different people on different farms and she at the age of five is tasked with emptying the Muskrat Muskrat traps of of her new temporary owner. So I always think about a five year olds hand trying to pry open a trap. In February February on the eastern shore of Maryland when it's cold and snowy and rainy and removing the dead carcass of a rodent and bring it to the owner for for their pelts right. This is the kind of work. She's doing exactly as a five year old and and the work would she was expected to learn how to do domestic work and she wasn't so great at that beginning she no one told her no one taught her she was as little she was She was required to take care of babies. She was so small when she was required to hold children in and take care of them. Keep them quiet that she had to sit on the floor because she just wasn't big enough to hold a child. She was a child taking care of a baby and as she grew older she was forced to work in the fields and on the eastern shore of Maryland she was doing. She was harvesting harvesting flax. And she was helping with loading wagons and just the most kind of physical difficult labor. And it's during this time. Her body is developing and becoming strong in a way of course she didn't know it at the time but it's sort of preparing her physically to deal with what the the underground.

"Passenger though, she might be most famous for leading those nighttime escapes through the underground railroad. Harriet Tubman went on to take an increasingly active role in dismantling American slavery over the coming decades. We'll talk about Harry, it's later years and the groundbreaking role. She played in the civil war right after this. Now back to the story in the late eighteen fifties as the United States headed toward an inevitable civil war Harriet, Tubman came to be known as the most successful agent of the underground railroad. It was around eighteen fifty eight when thirty eight year old Harriet met, the famous abolitionist or at our and writer Frederick Douglas. Douglas, it escaped slavery himself some years before and became a leader in the anti slavery movement. He introduced Harriet Tubman to John Brown, a radical white abolitionist who believed the only way to end slavery was through. Violent insurrection Brown and Tubman immediately developed a mutual respect for one another John Brown called Harriet general Tubman and look to her for advice on recruiting escape slaves to his 'cause they'll Harriet did not necessarily share John Brown's beliefs. She supported his goals and through eighteen fifty nine helped him plan an attack on the weapons depot at Harper's ferry Virginia. Brown hope to steal the weapons and use them to arm slaves who could then rise up against their owners and fight for their freedom Harriet used her knowledge of the south and her network of contacts to find support for Brown's plans. Unfortunately, the attack on harpers ferry was a failure. And John Brown was captured and Hong for his actions days after his capture. Brown's home was raided and several incriminating documents were confiscated which implicated his co-conspirators Harriet Tubman. Was one of those named in the documents making her continued abolitionist activities even more dangerous despite this Harriet risk traveling to Boston on December second eighteen fifty nine to be with John Brown's friends on the day of his execution. Brown was a man whom Harriet truly respected and his death hitter, particularly hard..

"And I feel like that portrait couldn't have come at a more important time. Obviously, we should all know Harriet, Tubman is she risked life and limb to rescue over three hundred enslaved Africans from their bondage. She was a spy for the union. She was a hero in every single sense of the word, but it should be very clear to you. And I that she couldn't vote she lived during a time when that was simply out of the question and yet Harriet Tubman chose to vote with her feet with her love with our courage with her very life. And so as you are waking up today, and you are headed on about your day. Make sure that. As you are voting, you're bringing five ten other people with you. You are texting folks that you are calling folks to remind them of this sacred important duty voting is certainly not the only key. We have to our freedom, but it's up to us to unlock every single door that stands between us and liberation. So we have to use every kid our disposal and today voting is the one so make sure that on November sixth year voting at tomorrow on November seven that you're holding those people accountable that have reached elected office to do what is actually best for the people if Harriet could keep going, so can we something I've been thinking a lot about over the past week or so are these images in videos, but have been circulating online in that tend to circulate online around election time of people standing in these long lines waiting to vote and the captions wealth and be something like so many people so incredible. Or look at these amazing lines. And I find myself sometimes getting frustrated because while I'm certainly incredibly moved by the people who wait long lines to vote ended absolutely infuriating that these long lines exist in the first place, but this shouldn't really come as a surprise across the country early voting. Periods have been reduced polled stations have been closed hours of operations for those polling stations have been shortened nearly a thousand polling places have been closed nationwide. In just the last half decade, at least ninety nine bills have been introduced in thirty one different states to restrict voting access in all of this religious makes a mockery of democracy. And when I see these lines, I think the parents who stand in these lines but had to leave to pick up their kids or go to work. I think of the student who was standing in line but had to leave to go to class. I think of the elderly person who couldn't be outside for that long because of the heat or the cold or the rain and all of these people very clearly want to vote, but we have a system that makes it so unnecessarily in grievously difficult to do. So. So that's all say that. When you see the long lines promoting it's not something to celebrate the people in those lines are certainly were celebrating. But not the line at self we deserve better. So obviously after twentieth sixteen it became an important conversation to discuss just how our social media outlets were keeping us safe from the spreading fake news today on election day. It's important to note that it's not just the spreading fake news about candidates or parties. But also the spreading fake news about voter suppression that social media outlets need to be very careful of Twitter and Facebook in particular had been trying for the last few months to make sure that they are squashing. Incorrect in misleading information out there about the elections. One of the most insidious ones with the idea that ice officials would actually be showing up at polling stations to check people citizenship. Obviously this is intimidating and discouraging to undocumented people to people. Who are coming from mixed status families. And frankly to anyone who looks like they could be an immigrant. This is actually not true and ice has tweeted out themselves that is quote does not patrol or conduct enforcement operations. At polling locations..

The few black British actors that land leading role Hollywood to play an American. In this case, a non fictional role is disgusting..
