"I will be telling you about a fellow bad ass. Marilyn native who has an absolutely extraordinary story to put it lightly. Actual generations of families would not exist if not for the actions of the single individual. This person was a literal beacon leading those who were willing from the depths of darkness to the liberty of light through their work. This individual earned the title. Of the moses of her people forever immortalized in history as strength power in fortitude personified. Today's story is about the indomitable the incredible the amazing harriet tubman. So let's get right into it. Harriet tubman was born era. Minta ross around eighteen. Twenty in dorchester county maryland. Harriet had nine other siblings. All of whom were born into slavery along with her parents. The suffering of the enslaved african american people during this time period cannot be overstated as early as five years old.

After a certain age heriot's father was the first to be freed at the age of forty five but the families current owners chose not to honor the contract and free the rest of harriet family due to the lack of legal status for freed african americans.

"On religious grounds most likely harriet tubman introduction to the organized anti slavery movement in general and the underground railroad in particular came by a william still who was a free black man who would later self published a book on the underground railroad or it might have come from lucretia or james mod. Tubman started making trips back into maryland to try to free enslaved people beginning in december of eighteen fifty when she went to baltimore to bring back her niece in two children. Her niece's husband who is free helped plan this escape. Another trip to baltimore may have followed but the historical record on that one is a little bit spotty here. In the fall of eighteen fifty one tubman went back dorchester county where she'd grown up to try to get her husband who was free as we said before but he had stayed behind in maryland wins escaped however when she got there she learned that he had buried someone else after she left. Marriages involving enslaved people really had no legal standing so from a legal standpoint. His marriage to harry. It was not really a barrier to him. Marrying someone else after she left for about a decade tubman continued to make trips into maryland to help people liberate themselves many of them members of her family. Because it wasn't enough to make it to a free state. She also established a base of operations in british north america. Which is now canada. She secured some land in saint catharines which was across a suspension bridge from buffalo new york near niagara falls and to get there. She had to guide people from maryland to philadelphia. And then into new york through albany syracuse and rochester. Before crossing the bridge getting started in saint catharines wasn't easy after having liberated themselves most of the people tubman guided there had virtually nothing to live on or to us to make a living. It's a while before tubman real foothold there. And even after she did money continued to be a real problem. According to the letters of thomas garrett by eighteen fifty-five harriet tubman had successfully returned to her old neighborhood. Four times had liberated seventeen family members and friends by eighteen. Sixty that number had grown to eight or nine forays into slave territory. The grand total is probably somewhere in the vicinity of ten to thirteen missions. Leading seventy to eighty people to freedom herself and instructing fifty or so others how to escape on their own. One of these trips was to bring back her parents who were elderly by that point after her father was caught sheltering escaping slaves after she returned with her parents tubman resettled in albany new york but maintained her ties to saint catharines because their parents just were not happy. Living in canada harriet tubman slash trip into maryland was an attempt to bring out a woman described as a sister who sadly died before the trip could actually be made. The journey was documented in the letters of martha coffin wright and some elements of that letter are now firmly rooted in what people quote no again in in those air quotes about the underground railroad for example toubon and the seven people. She was guiding used songs not to convey coded information which has become a popular part of underground railroad war but to help tubman fine the rest of the group after she had left them to forage for food and for them to signal back to her that it was safe to approach these missions that harriet tubman took Between maryland and canada really illustrate how the underground railroad really rated a lot of people envision the underground railroad as being a firmly established network of mostly white conductors. Were secretly enslaved quote. Cargo from deep in the south through a series of fixed hiding places in homes and barns and other buildings known as stations. So you would go from one station to the next one day at a time. In our collective imaginations every stop is planned in advance and as part of a regularly used route from one place to another and while there were white people involved in the underground railroad particularly among quakers as we mentioned earlier and there were definitely people who repeatedly sheltered escaping slaves in their homes or other buildings in reality. The whole thing worked a lot more like what. Harriet tubman was doing here. They were planned but they were also improvisational These trips were mainly into border. States frequently carried out by free escaped. African americans travelling by night hiding by day who made use of connections they had and routes that they knew to do it contrary to popular mythology. Harriet tubman did not invent the underground railroad and the number of people that she got it to freedom before the civil war was much lower than the three hundred that is often cited however none of this should take away from what she was doing. Harriet tubman is liberty and even her life at enormous every time she returned to slip to slave territory and when she was in free states in the company of escaping slaves who were also putting themselves at risk by trying to escape really. She was jeopardizing her own. Life and safety anytime. She was in the united states at all because he had escaped rather than being freed there is also at times a bounty for her capture. Although the number forty thousand dollars that's routinely specified is inflated was probably either twelve hundred or twelve thousand dollars. There's some debate about the existence of that last zero by the late eighteen fifties and into the eighteen sixties. Harriet tubman had become well known and well respected in new england's anti-slavery circles her work guiding escaped. Slaves was at first a secret but became more widely known in the years just before the civil war she earned the nickname moses and at anti-slavery meetings people spoke often of the escaped slave who had returned to slave territory again and again to liberate others. The civil war began in sixty one. Which really changed the nature of periods work. So that is where we are going to pause to pick up.

"Things i was aimed time Maybe more than anyone else. I can think of in american history. She has a near reputation that makes her kind of tricky person to talk about. Everybody has some tidbits of information and some of that is accurate and some of it is not. Yeah there's a lot about her life and about slavery and the underground railroad in general that people know with no in serious air quotes but is really like. It's really taken for granted but a lot of it is on somewhere on a spectrum between that can't be substantiated and that definitely did not happen and a lot of this is because for a long time children's books really dominated the work written about harriet. Tubman we've talked about that phenomenon before a lot of important figures especially in black history are the subjects of children's books and not serious academic scholarship as much which is frustrating. Even the books for adults for a long time critic uncritically repeated details from these nineteenth century accounts of her life. That were definitely embellished. And really serious. Scholarly examination to tried to get a more accurate picture of harriet. Tubman is live and work has been a lot harder to come by and overall a lot more recent than the things that sort of set the standards of how we think about. harriet tubman. So because there's so much to talk about it because so much of it requires some level setting to be honest we are going to talk about. Harriet tubman and work in two parts. And today's podcast is about her work. Liberating saved people many of them her family members by the underground railroad and then in our next episode. We'll talk about her civil war work in her life as a spy. And what came after that because there are so many misperceptions about the underground railroad in the institution of slavery in the united states. We're going to get into some of that context before we talk about the details of harriet. Tubman is life. The use of unpaid unfree labour began long before the united states became an independent nation. It was a big part of the economy and the labor force. Almost from the moment europeans started trying to establish permanent colonies in north america and we know. Enslavement existed in north america before european arrival. And there's an increasing body of historical research on enslavement of native americans by colonists as well but all of that is outside the scope of today's episode. That is one of the things. People will right to try to dispel talking about slavery. Slavery existed everywhere. Not what we're talking about. So if i this. System of unfree labour in the colonies was based on indenture basically would pay their way from europe to north america through in ventured servitude which was essentially an agreement to work without pay for a particular amount of time in exchange for shelter and food and pass across the atlantic ocean. Sometimes this was a choice. People made it was sometimes under duress and sometimes not it was people just wanted to move and that was the only way they could afford it but other times it was a punishment that they were sentenced to. Although the conditions indentured servants worked under could be appalling and there were definitely cases of people dying before their indenture was over. This denture had some very specific differences. When compared with chattel slavery the first and biggest was that there was an end date involved. Indenture was not supposed to be a lifetime condition. Once the indenture was over that person was free to go and was often granted. Some kind of compensation in the form of supplies or land and injured servitude also wasn't hereditary order tied to a person's race as more colonists started moving to north america and ventured servants included people from places like england ireland scotland germany and africa. The first enslaved africans to arrived in north america landed in virginia colony in sixteen nineteen and the dutch traded them to the colonists as indentured servants however a number of social economic and industrial factors led to the dominant system of unfree labour in the colonies gradually shifting from indentured servitude to chattel slavery these factors included uprisings and rebellions on the part of indentured workers the expense involved in contracting new indentured servants as the old dentures expired and the ease with which white indentured servants end with the rest of white society after escaping from an indenture there were religious elements as well in some cases. It was socially acceptable to hold a non-protestants person in bondage. But if that person converted that was no longer the case. Beginning in the mid sixteen hundred colonies started to pass slave codes which defined exactly what it meant to be a slave. Many of these laws were written in terms of race where whether they described slaves in general or enslaved people of african descent specifically these codes meant that in a lotta places. It became illegal. For an enslaved person tone property and weapons to congregate to get married to travel and to learn to read or write chattel slavery became codified as something that was lifelong. it was hereditary. Based on whether a person's mother was an slaved and it was tied to african descent when the declaration of independence was issued in seventeen seventy six slavery was legal in all thirteen colonies constitution was signed. It didn't include the word slavery but it did include references to the institution Including article four section two clause three which specified that a person held in service or labor in one state would not be discharged from that service or labor if they escaped to another state in seventeen ninety three to jump ahead just a little bit. Eli whitney invented. The cotton gin cotton was already being grown. In the south especially in farming cotton was hugely labor intensive with the invention of the cotton gin it was still labor intensive but it was a lot more lucrative because the process of removing the seeds from the harvested cotton became dramatically faster and easier consequence consequently the prevalence of slavery in the american south increased immediately and dramatically in response to how much easier it became to make a lot of money growing cotton at the same time in the north slavery was on the wane mostly because although plenty of northern people and businesses were profiting from slavery. There wasn't a huge industry that was dependent on slave labor like cotton farming or large scale agriculture. That was actually being worked there. Also present in the north was an increasingly active movement for abolition and while there were certainly abolitionists in the south as well the institution of slavery was so entrenched in the south that the movement was all but invisible. They're all of this history together. Means that by the time. Harriet tubman was born a couple of decades into the nineteenth century. Many northern states had either abolished slavery or had passed laws that were meant to gradually in the practice within their own borders. The idea that slavery should be abolished nationwide was at that point still largely viewed as radical even among people who were advocating for its within individual states and southern states on the other hand slavery was flourishing and other industries that were late related to selling and managing capturing escaped slaves were thriving in the south as well in many border states including maryland where harriet tubman was born and grew up. Slee was still practiced but often not quite as entrenched widespread and regulated as it was farther south for the sake of comparison In the middle of the nineteenth century enslaved people made up about thirteen percent of maryland's population compared to fifty seven percent of south carolina fifty five percent of mississippi forty-seven percent of louisiana and forty four percent of georgia so in addition to having less of a distance to travel to reach a free state slaves escaping from border states like maryland were often traveling through territory that had fewer resources devoted to maintaining and protecting the institution of slavery and this is where we get to the underground railroad which is a name that was applied to a loosely collected network of people who were all working toward the same end which was to liberate slaves. The underground railroad didn't have a formal organization or an established leadership structure and it liberated people mainly from the border states. Not from the deep south is a lot of people may imagine. And while our focus is really on maryland's day a lot of the underground railroad work was really through territory that was closer to the mississippi river. It wasn't enough for the underground railroad to guide people to a free state. Though in seventeen ninety three congress had passed a fugitive slave act which is basically an enforcement clause for article four section of the constitution setting out. How escaped slaves could be captured and returned to the south. A second even stricter fugitive slave law would be passed in eighteen fifty about thirty years after. Harriet tubman birth. So we don't know precisely when people started to use the term railroad to describe existing efforts to liberate enslaved people from bondage but it was appearing in writing by the middle of the nineteenth century. So we're gonna talk about. Harriet tubman early life. How she became part of the underground railroad after a brief break for a word.

Now we will get to here at ted mins life specifically and unfortunately we have a lot of detail about the earlier parts of it. While she was enslaved it was illegal for her to learn to read or write and if she did learn after. She liberated herself. The historical record doesn't reflect that a lot of people think she probably did not learn instead she dictated her life to people who were literate and one of these people was sarah hopkins. Bradford whose biographies of tubman were definitely filtered through her own lens. And in some cases in some cases were specifically written for the purpose of helping tubman to raise money to support herself and other people so they were books written to sell also. Harriet tubman was herself an incredible storyteller. Who spun out compelling evocative and dramatic stories so in many cases once. She narrated her autobiography. She was telling stories that she had told again. And again for years. It's probable in really even inevitable that these stories had been refined and embellished along the way through. Here years of retailing's if you tell the same joke at a party in its your go-to if you tell it today. Five years from now. You're still telling it you probably change some things and you probably don't remember. It's it's not necessarily a conscious move right and your mind. That's how it happened now. We do know that. She was born in maryland. Which as we said earlier was at the time. A slave state. Her birthdate is unknown. Although it was probably within a couple of years of eighteen twenty tablets parents were area green. And benjamin ross and tablets name at birth seems to have been and she was often called mincy. Stick the name. Harriet later on in her life. We don't know much about her relationship with her family Other than that. She did have several siblings and was charged with carrying for the ones who were younger than her when she was still a child. We also know that two older sisters were sold south. The family had some religious instruction probably methodist in religious observance was part of their family and social life based on heriot's later knowledge of folk healing and herbal medicines. It's also likely that they observed folk traditions passed down from her grandmother. Who was part of the ashanti tribe have been in many of her family were owned by a man named edward broadus. Tubman was often hired out including a brief apprenticeship as a weaver and work as a house mater nursemaid but a lot of work involved manual labor including working with timber. While still in her adolescence tubman experienced a head injury that led to her being disabled for the rest of her life and overseer or slave owner through a weight while trying to stop an escaping slave and it hit tubman. instead the resulting injury led to what seems to have been a form of narcolepsy or epilepsy which her biographers described as somnolence she was basically prone to periods of what sound like seizures or unexpected periods of sleep. There are also some people who theorized that the reason she never learned to read this head. Injury damaged the part of her brain. That works with literacy so totally unclear whether that was the case or not but that is a thing that people theorize this disability the with the fact that a lot of her work involved heavy manual labour might be one of the reasons that she didn't marry john until she was about twenty four which was relatively late for an enslaved woman. Living at the time the ten minutes had no children and their relationship was kind of unusual not necessarily unusual in maryland but unusual as in a general sense because john tubman was free and harriet tubman. His wife was actually another. Man's property. Harry its efforts to free other people started while she was still enslaved herself in eighteen. Forty five about a year. After her marriage she paid a lawyer. Five dollars to look into her suspicion that her mother's enslavement was not legal and it turned out she was writing according to the will of her prior owner tubman. Mother should have been freed when she reached the age of forty five. She had already been slave for another eleven years. When tubman confirmed those suspicions. Nothing seems to have come of this investigation. Though tubman father who had been freed in eighteen forty legally purchased her mother in eighteen fifty five a full decade after tablets investigation revealed that she was in fact being enslaved illegally. I i went to a thing called history camp. That was here in boston a few weeks ago. And i watched a Several presentations that were about tracking down formerly enslaved people in new england and trying to figure out what their family histories were and one of the rules Like it was sort of like the rules for doing this. Kind of research. And dispelling misconceptions about About enslavement and one of them was people did not necessarily follow the law. Like you can't be like well. It was illegal to do that to a slave. People didn't necessarily follow the law. Who clearly does mother was supposed to have been freed way before the legally bought her as a way to secretary anyway ever brought us died on march ninth of eighteen forty nine and in his will he specified that his widow would have quote use and higher tubman and any children. She had for the rest of her life so that tubman could help raise his children. However it's up in the rest of her family. Were really worried that instead some of them might be sold to pay off debts or settle a state fees which was a common occurrence when a slave owner died possibly because of the potential threat of being sold south. It was not long after this. That tubman escaped later that same year. She in two or three brothers left the plantation although her brother soon turned back and took her with them because they were afraid of the dangers they would face in escaping so when tubman struck out again it was on her own and the earliest accounts of tablets escape. She had the help of a sympathetic white woman. She's described in the earliest biography of tubman as a white lady who knew her story and helped her on her way. And who tubman repaid for these efforts with giving her a quilt however later biographers. One of the first fantastic embellishments that has become tied. Says sort of everyone's collective memory of Huffman that she had a vision that she needed to follow the northstar that probably embellishment. She did however talk later about feeling as though she had been called by god to help people to freedom and she made her way to philadelphia where she immediately began working with the anti-slavery community in the underground railroad.

She was working with the underground railroad by the time. Harriet tubman became involved in the underground railroad. The idea that the entire nation should abolish slavery. Which as we mentioned at the top of the show had been considered radical. Just thirty thirty years before was starting to gain some traction an organized. Abolition movement had been growing in the north for a couple of decades and by the time. Harriet tubman reached philadelphia. There were multiple anti-slavery societies including women. Anti-slavery society is operating there. There were also anti-slavery. Newspapers like william lloyd. Garrison's liberator which was established in eighteen. Thirty one and newspapers run by frederick douglass. The movement for abolition had largely originated with escaped slaves and free african americans and as it grew throughout the early mid eighteen hundreds it also attracted more white participants particularly quakers savory.
"harriet tubman" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"You say it area some so many requests we had all i mean we'd already been getting alive. Baby started well before the announcement that she is going to be on the new. Us twenty dollar bill. We also had another spike after the drunk. history owed about her If you don't mind lots of bleeped swearwords bathrooms quite funny. Indeed i i watched it three or four times within so most people are familiar with harriet tubman involvement in the underground railroad. But she also as people who have watched that drug that drunk history episode now as she was also a spy for the union during the civil war among many other things i was aimed time Maybe more than anyone else. I can think of in american history. She has a near reputation that makes her kind of tricky person to talk about. Everybody has some tidbits of information and some of that is accurate and some of it is not. Yeah there's a lot about her life and about slavery and the underground railroad in general that people know with no in serious air quotes but is really like. It's really taken for granted but a lot of it is on somewhere on a spectrum between that can't be substantiated and that definitely did not happen and a lot of this is because for a long time children's books really dominated the work written about harriet. Tubman we've talked about that phenomenon before a lot of important figures especially in black history are the subjects of children's books and not serious academic scholarship as much which is frustrating. Even the books for adults for a long time critic uncritically repeated details from these nineteenth century accounts of her life. That were definitely embellished. And really serious. Scholarly examination to tried to get a more accurate picture of harriet. Tubman is live and work has been a lot harder to come by and overall a lot more recent than the things that sort of set the standards of how we think about. harriet tubman. So because there's so much to talk about it because so much of it requires some level setting to be honest we are going to talk about. Harriet tubman and work in two parts. And today's podcast is about her work. Liberating saved people many of them her family members by the underground railroad and then in our next episode. We'll talk about her civil war work in her life as a spy. And what came after that because there are so many misperceptions about the underground railroad in the institution of slavery in the united states. We're going to get into some of that context before we talk about the details of harriet. Tubman is life. The use of unpaid unfree labour began long before the united states became an independent nation. It was a big part of the economy and the labor force. Almost from the moment europeans started trying to establish permanent colonies in north america and we know. Enslavement existed in north america before european arrival. And there's an increasing body of historical research on enslavement of native americans by colonists as well but all of that is outside the scope of today's episode. That is one of the things. People will right to try to dispel talking about slavery. Slavery existed everywhere. Not what we're talking about. So if i this. System of unfree labour in the colonies was based on indenture basically would pay their way from europe to north america through in ventured servitude which was essentially an agreement to work without pay for a particular amount of time in exchange for shelter and food and pass across the atlantic ocean. Sometimes this was a choice. People made it was sometimes under duress and sometimes not it was people just wanted to move and that was the only way they could afford it but other times it was a punishment that they were sentenced to. Although the conditions indentured servants worked under could be appalling and there were definitely cases of people dying before their indenture was over. This denture had some very specific differences. When compared with chattel slavery the first and biggest was that there was an end date involved. Indenture was not supposed to be a lifetime condition. Once the indenture was over that person was free to go and was often granted. Some kind of compensation in the form of supplies or land and injured servitude also wasn't hereditary order tied to a person's race as more colonists started moving to north america and ventured servants included people from places like england ireland scotland germany and africa. The first enslaved africans to arrived in north america landed in virginia colony in sixteen nineteen and the dutch traded them to the colonists as indentured servants however a number of social economic and industrial factors led to the dominant system of unfree labour in the colonies gradually shifting from indentured servitude to chattel slavery these factors included uprisings and rebellions on the part of indentured workers the expense involved in contracting new indentured servants as the old dentures expired and the ease with which white indentured servants end with the rest of white society after escaping from an indenture there were religious elements as well in some cases. It was socially acceptable to hold a non-protestants person in bondage. But if that person converted that was no longer the case. Beginning in the mid sixteen hundred colonies started to pass slave codes which defined exactly what it meant to be a slave. Many of these laws were written in terms of race where whether they described slaves in general or enslaved people of african descent specifically these codes meant that in a lotta places. It became illegal. For an enslaved person tone property and weapons to congregate to get married to travel and to learn to read or write chattel slavery became codified as something that was lifelong. it was hereditary. Based on whether a person's mother was an slaved and it was tied to african descent when the declaration of independence was issued in seventeen seventy six slavery was legal in all thirteen colonies constitution was signed. It didn't include the word slavery but it did include references to the institution Including article four section two clause three which specified that a person held in service or labor in one state would not be discharged from that service or labor if they escaped to another state in seventeen ninety three to jump ahead just a little bit. Eli whitney invented. The cotton gin cotton was already being grown. In the south especially in farming cotton was hugely labor intensive with the invention of the cotton gin it was still labor intensive but it was a lot more lucrative because the process of removing the seeds from the harvested cotton became dramatically faster and easier consequence consequently the prevalence of slavery in the american south increased immediately and dramatically in response to how.
Harriet Tubman, the Ultimate Outdoorswoman
"Everyone knows harriet. Tubman as an activist and freedom fighter. We all learned about her in school. Growing up how she led slaves to freedom on the underground railroad but there was a lot more to her than what you probably remember from history class. She was a daughter a wife an entrepreneur and she was something else too. When you think about it she had to be the ultimate outdoors woman. Do what she did. That's right an outdoors woman. We don't often talk about. Harriet tubman in that light. Or if we do. It's kind of cautionary tale. Her experiences in the outdoors must have been so awful. So why would any sane black person wanna go into the wilderness voluntarily it feeds into the narrative. We often hear that african americans are not outdoorsy. But what if there's more to the story. What was harry. Its relationship with nature. How does that shape. The way african americans with the outdoors today and how might a closer look at harriet. Offer a new perspective on who belongs outdoors victoria. Marin has the story so this story was inspired by a podcast called following. Harriet which is about harriet. Tubman the show pulls back the curtain on harry. It's life giving listeners. A deeper context to her story. A story that i think is more layered and probably more relatable than many people realize most of us enter. Harriet tubman is life when she was in her thirties forties fifties and often times. We don't sort of think about how she came to be. Harriet people of my generation people who grew up in the nineteen seventies. We first met harriet in a photo in the corner of a textbook. She looked old. Her skin was stretched tight on her face. Her mouth was pinched. Her head was wrapped in a dark. Kerchief
Juneteenth: A Celebration of Freedom
"Many people think slavery ended on the day. Abraham lincoln issued the emancipation proclamation in january eighteen. Sixty three but it actually took more than two and a half years for it to become official throughout all of the confederate states. Our correspondent pamela. Kirkland calls up. He's a museum specialists in oral history at the national museum of african american history and culture in washington. Dc to explain a bit more about the history of the holiday. We'll just start with what is juneteenth. June taint juneteenth this great day that is celebrated because on june nineteen eighteen. Sixty five general. Gordon granger arrived in galveston texas with order numbers sri announcing that the enslaved were now free this is important because although the emancipation proclamation had been signed in eighteen sixty three it had a little to no impact almost of the enslaved throughout the south. Because if there weren't union soldiers there to enforce it it literally. Nothing in did not change of your life if you were enslaved human being in texas. Which was the westernmost state. There was very little union presence throughout the war so it was as if nothing had happened in fact there were slave owners. He moved west to continue. The practice of slavery moved to texas for that purpose so this day this was a big day. He arrived with almost two thousand troops. Some of whom were united states colored troops and they enforced this order. What what kind of the history. Of june teeth in the legacy. It's only recently really bad. It's become more widely known. Yes i well. It started in texas so immediately a year. After this announcement they have the first juneteenth In texas in houston. The african americans their a saved up. Money and bought land is specifically for this purpose that became emancipation park and it was practiced throughout texas In also places like oklahoma is started to slowly spread with the great migration in which you see different ways so it was celebrated through the turn of the century than it waned a little. Then you see it's coming back after the after world war two then. There was another big boost after the civil rights era after the sixties. What are some of the exhibits that highlight juneteenth And demands pation.

"Get started with. I think this person or this story broke during the summer. it's kinda hard to tell now with the pandemic. what time is like but one other prominent ones that i remember seeing that wino- was flooding. Our timeline was the story of jessica. Craig aka or formerly known as jess la. Barletta cringe already awesome early known formerly known best. I'm about that. Let's get started. Let's talk about her. Yes so this woman has allegedly and apparently apparently been taking on different like black and afro sport identities throughout her life. She's an a professor or was a professor and academic where george washington university and university teaching. You know black studies are afrikaner studies and publishing books but at some point she were shifting from being in a north african to being african american and then being afro latin next sand after boaty gua was i think the final landing place for her her official forum her final warm so jessica. Krog just aka justifiable maleta hers combination of black fishing and being a fake tina at the same time and She got called out basically rightfully so rightfully so by a group of professors who are after latina's who had issues with her they were witness to or on the receiving end of like aggression from her and like prejudice and bad behavior while she was masquerading as after let nine different contexts. Apparently being super like belligerent towards black women in my on cool and really I think overcompensating and so trying to be an ex sorted extreme caricature of like this south bronx like her. Allegedly her mother was like a drug addicts prostitutes like this narrative that should created about herself so black women in the academy you know began talking about these different experiences and came forward and said This is not right. Yeah she was definitely performing like whoa kness being extreme radical like it was very performative. She was a published academic author and she also received a ton of accolades rice. She received she was a finalist. For the twenty twenty frederick douglass prize book prize presented by yale's gilder lehrman center the study of slavery resistance and abolition. She also was nominated or a finalist for the twenty thousand nine. Harriet tubman book prize and just received a ton of accolades has really been propelled or was propelled forward and questionably hired because of not solely for her identity. But because of the work she was doing and also the way. She positioned herself as offer latino or body gua and it's very cringe to think about all of the opportunities she stole from actual author. Latinas boras caribbean women. That are doing if not the same work or better work you know. And so it's that was probably one of the first ones that we saw. And then i think it kind of just opened up the floodgates for a lot of others than i don't know about you ma. But in my chicano studies department at uc santa barbara. There were a couple of fake denies that i will not name. They were not. They weren't anyone that i took like. I didn't take any classes with them but they were around. People talked about them. People knew like this person is very white claims this this cheek. Ghana mohican identity. You know is wide. Skin blue is performing she gun. You know some kind of ghana identity wearing that. I had because with the free that carlo ecstatic the whole thing right and it's like you like i they weren't. They were my peers. I was a student right. But i have friends that were graduate students. And they would tell me about these. Things happen. And in their cohort or in their in their seminars. And so you know. I think if if you've been in academia right. I haven't been to grad school. But i was an undergrad but i've i've definitely seen the fake tina's around so they definitely exists and i think this one opened the floodgates for a ton of

"harriet tubman" Discussed on New Jersey 101.5
"Wait are still searching for pictures. Oh, my good as I thought. You forgot that. Hey, Before you go, I got as we've done these last hour. Would you date outside your political party? I have what I like. Um, no way. Always be laughing. We go to the polls because you didn't vote. One way I'd vote the other. We cancelled each other out, basically, but the last two elections. It's been interesting. Yeah, It's not easy anymore. You know that Just well, we lost exactly exactly. Alright. Get on. See you later. All right. 12831 on 1.5 is the number. I'm Steve trouble, these jerseys, opening lines coming up, But then I give you the opening line of a song We play every weekend in New Jersey One A 1.5 on the music comes out to play. We got lottery tickets to give away tonight about that. Uh, now for those of you that may have forgotten Monday is Columbus Day. Now everybody's got a different opinion on Columbus Day in Newark. They're celebrating Columbus Day by the already removed the Christopher Columbus statue for its own good. They didn't wanted vandalized. They don't. We don't know where it is. I think it's next to the Jimmy Office that you I'm not really sure. But Norick may arouse. Baraka has announced that the city will rename Washington Park to honor Harriet Tubman and commissioned a statue of Harriet Tubman. Thea abolitionist to replace the Christopher Columbus statue. Ah, The statue, of course, was removed in the night in June. 1 Italian American group voice displeasure with the lack of public discussion before it was taken down from NJ dot com. The announcement to rename the park to Tubman Square came Wednesday night during Barack is six State of the city address, and AH gave an update on the majority of the city's progress, says Barack as not just window dressing. Newark played an important into her role in the underground railroad and Harriet Tubman's journeys to freedom led her to our city many times in that very area. I have no argument with that. And nor do the Italian people. The executive director of Unico National, the large Italian American service organization in the United States, said other groups are still working to get the statue from the city. And ah They say. I thought the mayor took the stat down the statue of Columbus to protect it from vandalism. Ah, Unico National Executive director Salvatore Benvenuti told then J advanced media. It appears that's a lie, and he obviously has an ulterior motive. The Italian community certainly agrees with honoring Harriet Tubman, but the mayor does not have to do it at the disrespect of the Italian community. By doing so he's creating more divisiveness and promoting racism. All right now, here's my take on it. Very berry in the lead here, regardless of how you feel about the Columbus, Christopher Columbus to Columbus statue Ah, I believe that you know, the Columbus statue should stay simply because I'm Italian. I was born in New York. We moved to Union City in the mall, bro. But I know what Christopher Columbus means to the Italian people. The Italian community was given in 1927 to the city by the Italian community, but again, the lead that's being buried here. Is that they are renaming Washington Park. You're basically changing the name of apart named after the father of our country, the first president of the United States to honor Harriet Tubman. Now New York is the largest city in New Jersey. Couldn't they find another place? 1 800 to 83101.5. You know one thing about how you feel about the idea of the Columbus statue being you know, coming down. It was down in June is obviously not going back up. It will be replaced by Harriet Tubman statue. But how do you feel about the idea of renaming Washington Park? After Harriet's Hellman. Should we be renaming Parks named after presidents or could we find another location? And is this the start of something? Are we now going to be taking down the names of presidents as we can continue this cancel culture that has been going on wanted on a two a 3101.5. It's going to be changed to Tubman Square. I mean, I get the idea that you know different people moved through the city and as they do is different, you know people coming to the city move out of the city. Other people come into the city. And you know, you have to take care of the people living in your city. But A park named after the president of the United States. George Washington. Should that be renamed? New York once had a large Italian population, especially the North Ward. But the numbers within the city's borders started to decline in the fifties. Newark no longer has a Columbus Day parade. And in 2017 Baraka changed the holidays name to indigenous peoples. They By executive orders or Columbus in Newark is pretty much out of the picture. But where were you on the idea of renaming? A park named after George Washington. 1 800 to 83101.5 and again. This is not a knock on Harriet Tubman quickly find that could there be another place? The largest city in New Jersey. And I'm sure there's a spot. That you know Harriet Tubman could be honored it But should be at the expense of the father of our country. Wanted under 283101.5. I read the story and I'm saying to myself to burying the lead here, you know the whole thing. Well, the common statues down. It's going to be replaced by Harriet Tubman statue. Wait, wait a minute. Uh, by the way. They're going to rename Washington Park. Where were.
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

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
Baa-a-a-a-a! Pesky goats block Trump motorcade en route to New Jersey golf resort
"Talk about the worst news of the Week I. A small herd of goats is responsible for blocking the presidential motorcade last weekend and Don go.

He gets a tax break a property tax break known as farmland tax break worth nearly eighty thousand dollars a year on his golf resort because it's supposedly doubles as a goat ranch. According to the Wall Street? Journal. Yeah. So I, guess there's like a a loophole for landowners. Who if you say that you're like property is technically like an agricultural project then you get fucking tax break. So you know what this makes me WANNA do. Primal, SCREAM That's fucking primal. Scream I mean within I haven't like truly truly gone off on this pod. It makes me so mad when people call Batman a businessman, he played a businessman on TV he. Hey businessman that's. It's insane.

Apparently, the trump national golf club in bedminster maintains one hundred thirteen acres of hay farming and eight goats, eight goats, and you get eighty thousand dollars a year. It's ridiculous. It's not enough. Goat's remember when that person last time by bought like five goats and it was not one hundred dollars was not that much. So apparently that's all we need. We can go in together on five coats and get. Nearly. One hundred thousand dollar tax break. Let's do it I'm

"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.
