My Dad gave me my name Attica I'm named after the prison in upstate New York born a few months after the uprisings there in. So I didn't have a choice Ashanti really didn't in. So early on I got involved in a right out of college classmates run for city also in Knoxville Tennessee because I went away to ABC you is well, it's our on his campaign and then my full time job was at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and director was a county commissioner who became the first woman mayor of Maciel Tennessee and I came back home and I was involved with organized Labor at jobs with justice in ended up having. To me that I needed to run for office in. So because my friends mostly black and Brown women encouraged me to run for office. That's how I. Got Involved I love it in Y'all Attica is my emerge sister she went through emerged Kentucky and I remember the first time. I. Got to email her for something and I was so excited because I finally get to work with Atacan. Something is your pie vaccine my email she said, hey, queen and I almost died unlike y'all Attica call me queen because that's the way I, feel about her so you are just so fabulous and I wanNA start with having. US. Talk about retailers case because I think there's so much here particularly with you wrap Scott you just had an op Ed in the Washington Post after the verdict you are out protesting with your daughter named Ashanti another reason why Atacan I are meant to be best friends and you were arrested in. You've been dealing with the aftermath of that. You've sponsored Brianna Law for Kentucky. You're the only black woman currently in the Kentucky State House. So let's let's dissect this case in state's attorney boy I. Know You have a lot to add is the fact that there were no knock warrants how they handle just paperwork body cameras the grand jury I know that something that has really piece Pete People's interests about this grand jury in Oh what does this attorney general deal? So Rep Scott First let's talk about your op-ed why you felt you had to write it in a cave really personal place you said, this is personal to me. Sean in and I'm on this podcast with Queens. Come on State Attorney Ray boy This is power in so. Yes I happy that Opportunity Washington Post invited me to write a piece just from the perspective whatever that was on things going on here in Louisville Kentucky, and so that's exactly what I did I poured my heart into it as a mother of two black children. Masan is the same age as Taylor Madonna's nineteen. She wanted to be an emt in them. Brianna Taylor was murdered and she said to me Ma that didn't protect her from police violence I'm not sure this. So this is really pulling on us in shanty the people relieving leading the Front Lines here in Louisville for justice for Taylor are mostly women is so we're feeling this heavily. So yes, we've back to now to grandeur WANNA speak out. So that says to me that the Attorney General for Kentucky was so inept that in such a failure that you have rand jurors who want the right to speak out to say, he did not give us all of the options in front of us. There was no one there to speak for Briana Taylor in that this whole process was a sham that's where we all right now that says something about the continued. Kushner justice for Taylor in that's why we won't give up and that's why this movement is sustained

Poverty Levels In Minority Communities On The Rise
"This week applications for unemployment benefits jumped unexpectedly to their highest since August this new economic report by Columbia. University. Finds that millions more Americans are falling into poverty with the expiration of benefits from the cares act. It also says black people and Latinos are more than twice as likely as white people to be poor in this country people like, Jasmine, a twenty, two year old black woman here in Washington. DC, we aren't using Jasmine's full name because of the social stigma associated with poverty. She tried to get pandemic unemployment assistance back in the spring when everything shut down and she couldn't start a new job at national stadium I was receiving. Five hundred dollars a week. It was rarely enough, but it helped me out and. That stop. believe in June. And ever since then I've been going through a lot of financial burden jasmine is a single mom she's home with her four young kids including a three month old making it impossible to look other work she's already burned through the four thousand dollars she managed to save up while receiving assistance like I've spent all. From my pool and being accused me like orange and where I think ED's. and. It hasn't gotten that far with Congress unable to agree on a new round of Corona virus assistance people like Jasmine are slowly dropping further into poverty every day we're going to dig into the causes of this with William. Spriggs. He's the chief economist for the AFL CIO and also a professor of economics at Howard University in Washington. Thanks for being here this morning. Thanks for having me. What's GonNa Happen to people like Jasmine if Congress can't agree on more federal aid. For the moment, some people depending on where they live or benefiting from the halting of evictions that means they're building up arrears and their rent many of them because they don't have a flow of income are also building up whereas when utilities or they're borrowing from Peter to pay Paul and they're building up careers there as well. The problem for others is they are in places where he fictions are taking place. there. quaint to need extra deposit in order to get the next rent, their credit score will have suffered. In some cases, people are sophisticated enough to use the forbearance that's out there for credit cards. Many people don't know about this, and some of them are getting penalties for missing credit card payments. Cycle that keeps feeding and pushing people further into this place. Exactly. It spirals out of control in the problem is, as you mentioned on unemployment insurance claims while we did see the rebound that everyone expected. That we found has slowed and the last three months we've seen progressively lower job creation a build up of people who are now permanently unemployed as opposed to people reporting that they're temporarily unemployed and for African Americans the labor market is now turn back to its discriminating itself and I was Gonna ask about that I mean. This is hitting a blacks in America and Latinos harder than whites. This is a big question and a lot of it is structural but can you give a concise answers to why? Well there's clear discrimination labor market. So the unemployment rate last month for high school dropouts. was lower than the block an appointment. That's the depth of the discrimination that black workers space that their unemployment rate is higher than the unemployment rate of high school dropouts of this nation. LemMe ask when it comes to children child poverty. Is that a recent study by the University of Chicago, Notre Dame found that black people and kids have been hit so hard if we can't turn things around what is life like for those chiltern. The real tragedy we know that spells of poverty permanently scarred show because they fall behind on so many dimensions and that's why it's necessary that we stop this economic pain. As soon as possible it's a long term S- growing for our economy, not just the scoring we're having immediately, which is very deep to our labour-market. William Springs is the chief economist for the AFL CIO. He's also a professor of economics at Howard. University. We so appreciate you taking the time this morning. Thank you. Thank you.
Trump tax returns: How rich Americans avoid taxes
"A New York Times investigation into president trump's tax returns found that in some years he paid little or even no taxes. Now, he is not the only rich person to not do. So the tax code favors people who live off of investments including a lot of people in finance who run hedge funds or manage money. Here's NPR's Jim Zarroli. Morris. Pearl is part of the one percent. He's a former managing director at the giant investment firm blackrock. He has an apartment on New York's Park Avenue, and he lives off his stock investments. These days Pearl says, the taxes he pays are lower than ever I. For instance, have not worked since twenty fourteen. All of my money comes from investments I'm doing fairly well, but my tax rate is in the teens. That's right. He pays a lower tax rate than the average teacher or letter carrier Pearl is a millionaire even chairs an organization called. Patriotic Millionaires, and he thinks the way the tax system works is disgraceful. Our system allows rich people particularly real estate developers and investors to pay far lower taxes and people at work for a living US tax law was designed to be progressive meaning the more you earn the more you pay, but it doesn't always work out that way when president trump was running for office, he promised to overhaul the tax code. It is riddled with loopholes that let some special interests including myself in all fairness is gonNA. Cost me a fortune this thing believing. Belief. This is not good for me. The tax bill trump ultimately signed into law in two thousand seventeen got rid of some deductions and loopholes, but it retained one provision that mostly benefits rich people as Earth tax loopholes go one of the more known textiles because it is. So ridiculous Charles con is with the strong economy for all coalition, a group of community and labor groups. He says people who live off investments such as stocks and real estate are taxed differently than people who earn salaries, but instead of paying the income tax rate, which could be as high at the thirty seven percent. They pay capital gains and the capital gains tax rate tops off at twenty percent. Trump's tax bill also retained another very controversial provision. It allows money managers and hedge. Fund titans to take their salaries as investment income meaning they pay that lower rate. Trump insists that his tax cuts helped fuel an economic boom at least until the corona virus hit here he is at his State of the Union address. Soon, after signing the bill, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history. But Economists William Spriggs of Howard University says the bill kept some rules in place that benefit the rich especially people such as president trump who made their money in real estate and sprigs says that by cutting corporate taxes, the bill helped fuel a long rally in stock prices and that's benefited the rich even more people owning stocks where the big beneficiaries because their income was going up whereas wages stagnated even through the recession, the stock market has continued to do well, people who own stocks have seen their portfolios grow and they continue to pay much lower taxes on the prophets they bring in.
Interview with Glory Edim
"Her second in policy, which we look forward to hearing more about welcome glory are you having me? Oh thank you so much for joining us in your kicking off our season two of the podcast series. So what a way to start the fall? Oh, this is incredible. I'm glad to be a guest I am a fan of your work. In addition to just enjoying the book itself, I'm a fan of what you've been able to accomplish with well red black girl particularly in the way of used the platform of of a literary network to intentionally highlight narratives that are often ignored or ones that disappear from her collective consciousness as to African descended womanhood, the beauty and diversity of our voices experiences I enjoy speaking to people like yourself and I often wonder how is this person get here? What was their journey like? Why do they do what they do? So you ready to get into it? Yes, I am. Act One call to adventure. As a writer entrepreneur, of course, there are paths that we take and processes that we engage in to get us to where we are today, and sometimes we do that. Emotionally, we have spiritual processes, intellectual ones, and so on. How did you become interested in doing the work you do today? Well, it was a long and Berry unexpected journey and I think it really started for me at Howard University by alumni really supported me feel seen in loves and space where black women aren't always valued our university boosted lifted me up. So it was there that I countered Zora Neil hurston and Tony Morrison and my Angelo, all incredible authors that allowed me to see myself more clear in allowed needs to really start to think about who I wasn't the world in the work that I wanted to do, and originally I majored in journalism and I minored in geology and I was always surrounded by just incredible people that motivated me whether it's my professors my best friends I just always had a beautiful reflection to someone saving mealy you can do this and whether it was reading pursuing journalism, I, always find courage is supported and I think that's the main takeaway from my spirit's is becoming not. Yet or do serve the festival and so many other names. It's having a support system being passionate and being able to identify what your vision is. Jahns I've been able to say without a doubt that my purpose to really be of service to other black women and help uplift them in a leary space yawns I gained so much joy from that. I didn't know that was what I was going to be doing when I was a freshman in college, but it just organically happened as I started pursuing my career. Network in meeting other people it just services evolved this beautiful way. So years later, we well red black girl but I know that seed was planted on campus our university I, like fat because and maybe this is just my own personal perspective of going to a Pwi a predominantly white institution that it's not to say that you don't have professors that encourage and cultivate you your skills, your interest but I wonder if if it's something about going to an HP, see you that it's like Hashtag black excellence all around and then you. Just really entrenched in that moment of Oh, you dig Tony Morrison to, and it's not like we have one week where we covered Tony Morrison then that's it. No, it's extends like it's like the whole life cycle like I think back when I was a freshman I taught at a school that was called the Maya Angelou Public Charter school and I don't think I could have done that anywhere else but in DC as a student at Howard University and those moments gave me again the sense of purpose of helping. Other children and working in space with other black students and working with black professors just around we twenty four, seven that I didn't have I didn't have a chance to second-guessed took away. Any doubt I had when I was at a randomly whites all as a high school student and then when I graduated I, just have the sense of I mean in. Regards like entitled to myself were that I felt like I do anything united feels token is any way because I knew

Incoming freshmen discuss what it's like to start college during a pandemic
"Now, one more thing about what it's like to start your freshman year of college during a pandemic I think's away that the virus is affecting incoming freshmen. This group of people on a really unique way that time between high school and college during a normal year when there's not a pandemic is already stressful. It's such a big moment. Name is Lauren MacKinnon. I am an education reporter after coats. I was thinking a lot about the summer between my senior year of high school in my Freshman Year of college when I was just being anxious and also being excited and worried about the transition though a pandemic into it, all this as schools and colleges across the country struggle with their reopening plants here though an economic crisis in. In, family struggling during the pandemic it makes it even more difficult and I really wanted to capture the stories and understand kind of decisions young people were making and how those decisions the rest of their lives. My. Name is Adrian Williams I'm eighteen years old I'm from Jersey City New Jersey and I go V illustrious. Howard University. School is fully online. So I'm I'm home. So Asiana she has wanted to go to Howard University for years. And you know she applied when she senior she's ready to go and all of a sudden. It didn't really make a ton of sense to. Apply for loans and do all the stuff when the economy's in great money is just not looking right and I can't and I and it was it was to the point where I literally couldn't go I could not school. The balance is not paid and no one in my family had good enough credit to cosign on my loan and so all of a sudden kind of her goal for most of high school to grow to this university didn't make sense because of the pandemic when it's done to higher education and so I think her big kind of. Decision making process really revolved around money. She was considering the community college closer to home. She would save a lot of money doing that it was really about the financial implications of this and I'm. Doing the best for her emily the you know the decision to take out loans right now that's going to affect you know for the rest of your life. started out I really didn't think it would affect my college at all. Zeros did I think that it would be like this I think the big theme is just the decisions that these students are hatching make because the pandemic. I think that you know we hear a lot about young people, college students, breaking rules, and wanting to party not wearing masks I think we is happening but these were students who really wanted to play by the rules really just wanted as normal college experience as possible try to as they can happen and it just didn't happen or they have to change it and make alterations to the original plans, which is something that everyone is having to you in different ways but if you're an incoming freshman this. Desert ways since decisions could play out. So once they announced a statement saying. No one is community campus. The tuition was perfectly reduced to the fact where we opinionated cash like us how small the ballots was. Running for Miss Freshman so you might. Think that I can do a good job in even if I don't end up winning Miss Freshman, I think I will have a lot of fun running. For Miss Fresh. I'm going to try.

"howard university" Discussed on Post Reports
"Had insider information advanced knowledge of what wikileaks whole held. Now Day said that they couldn't prove that Roger Stone's actually did have that knowledge, but the trump campaign believed it to be so and that they were pressing Roger Stone to tell them what stolen documents wikileaks going to be released so that they could use them to their benefit on the campaign trail. Specifically, they actually appear to call out Donald Trump for lying to the MOWER team. In written answers that the president's team gave to federal prosecutors, he said that he did not have any recollection of talking to Roger Stone about wikileaks the Senate team found did they talked about it? He says, they didn't but they did. And will this Senate? Intelligence Committee report CHANGE ANYTHING GOING FORWARD? Is there any potential for additional criminal charges against any of the people that they say were? Is this just additional information about something that we have already basically hashed out? I. Think this is an important document for history. I mean, it's really really detailed. It's a thousand pages long it goes into all kinds of subjects, some of which have not really been studied before that I think when people want to understand better will happen in this era. This report will be examined and looked at I. Don't think it's GONNA lead to more criminal charges. The Justice Department has made clear attorney general. Bill. Bar has said that he believes that the original counterintelligence investigation was opened on a very thin thin read that he did not believe in it. So I don't think we're GONNA ever. See it criminal charges over what happened with Russia in twenty sixteen. I will say I think that most people have decided what they think on this topic and you know thousand pages or twenty thousand pages this document is unlikely to sway a lot of people's minds. and. What do you think that says about where we are going into this next election because I think it's really striking. The fact that here we are four years after the events that are outlined in this document and not only is there still debate over some of these newer details of of what actually happened in two thousand sixteen but you still have the president and a big part of the country that fundamentally does not believe that Russians actually tried to influence the election for years ago. So what does that say about how prepared we are going into this November? Yeah we had the intelligence community come out just within recent weeks to say that foreign intelligence services are continuing to try to affect our political system including Russia that Russia has not given up. They are still trying to support Donald Trump and that is a conclusion that the Republican party a writ large, and certainly the person of Donald Trump appears to not accept. and. That's pretty that's pretty difficult to know how this is going to play out in the final months of what's likely to be really dirty dirty campaign You know we have seen for instance, the president just re tweeted with in recent days some audio clips that were put out by Ukrainian lawmaker. Our intelligence community has said that those audio clips came out as. Part of a Russian disinformation campaign and the president is embracing it and re tweeting at this very moment. So in some sense, you know we're seeing history repeat itself and you know it's sort of the classic cliche those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it while this is the report that is that history and I'm not sure people.
"howard university" Discussed on Post Reports
"So, why are they studying Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election when we already had the Mola report which addressed that exact same thing. So, they started this process before Bob Muller was even appointed way back in the early part of twenty seventeen when it became apparent that the Russians had done something in the election. So there are two ways in which this report is really different from the mall report which came out in twenty nineteen. The first is that it is bipartisan it's I was conducted both by Democrats and Republicans working. On the Senate Intelligence Committee, and theoretically any of the takeaways that are included in there those are signed off by Democrats and Republicans. That's right. We did see yesterday. Oh sides kind of put out statements that offered their interpretations of what you should draw from the report and those differed quite strongly what they wanted people to think were the most important takeaways but the actual one thousand paid for poor which is very fact base river accounts. You know details that they found in the course of their investigation theoretically those. have been signed off by both sides. So that's one thing that makes this really different from the more report. The other is that the more team had a very narrow mandate they were looking for crimes did people break the law so they could be indicted and potentially sent to prison. This report takes a much broader Wook what they described as a counterintelligence look what did Russia de when what were the vulnerabilities that recreated on the American side to make our political system potentially more open or vulnerable to Russian attack. So. If what came out on Tuesday is the fifth installment in this investigation that the Senate Intelligence Committee has been doing what we're the big takeaways or things that are different from what we already knew about how Russians tried to influence the election. So the big takeaway here was that first of all the Russian effort, it just reconfirmed what has been said by multiple groups over and over again, which was that it was aggressive it was real. It was ordered up by Vladimir Putin. The Russians really did try to affect our political system including hacking documents and releasing them publicly by having social media puts and. By. Trying to infiltrate the trump campaign, the other thing that this report really hit was that the trump campaign made itself vulnerable. They did not find that they sort of actively conspired with the Russian government and not something that the Republicans want you to think is the biggest takeaway here there was not an active conspiracy between the Russian government and the trump campaign but over and over again, this report emphasizes the vulnerabilities that were created by various members of the trump team being opened a Russian help being eager to maximize it to their benefit and who were those individuals who are talked about in this report. So there's a couple of people that they focus on the big one as Paul, Metaphor who is the chairman of the trump campaign? He is this guy who had had active business and political history working with Russians and pro Russian Ukrainians for years before he began to work for free for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen and they describe how he had a ongoing communications including communications he was trying to hide would this Russian employees of his who worked in Keith worked in Ukraine his name was Constantine column, Nick, and the Senate Intelligence Committee says Contin. Colonic Nick is a Russian intelligence officer that's a bit new. The more report than the more folks had claimed that clinic had ties to Russian intelligence. The Senate has gone further. They say he was a Russian intelligence officer and that for gave him access to inside trump campaign information, internal polling campaign strategy what they considered battlegrounds that Paul Manafort was leaking these insider details to a Russian intelligence officer. They also say that they've uncovered some information that this guy. Constantine. Kalinic may have had personal role in the Russian hacking operations. This is a pretty big deal They called this a grave counterintelligence threat to the United States. The chairman of the trump campaign posed a grave counterintelligence threat to the United States, and this was the cigar bar thing right like that Paul Manafort had met with Constantine, Clem? Nick. At the Cigar Bar in New York, and this was the focus of a lot of the investigations around whether that was a point of coordination between the trump campaign and Russia yeah exactly. one of the things that we had learned to the MOWER is that Paul Metaphor and constant clinic actually had this sort. Of. Secret meeting in your clinic had flown from Russia to New York, for this meeting it took place at a cigar bar. In Manhattan, an at that meeting Paul Manafort gave him nick internal polling data from the trump campaign, and one of the things that the Senate report emphasizes is that wasn't the only time they say that he provided clinic in information insider information about the campaign on quote numerous occasions, and who are some of the other people that this report focuses on in terms of people within the trump campaign who were points of vulnerability. So. Basically, they look at all the names that if you've been following this story over the last few years, you would be familiar with they will get George Popadopoulos this foreign policy adviser who was told by a Maltese academic in the spring of Twenty sixteen that the Russians had Hillary Clinton's emails, and they conclude that he was this over eager guy wanted to impress the campaign they say that they do not believe that he was a willing conspirator with the Russians but that the Way He was acting in sort of his openness to working with folks and trying to set up a meeting between the trump campaign and Russia ends presented a point of vulnerability. He was a potential vector for foreign intelligence services. In the same way, they will get Carter page another foreign policy adviser who visits Moscow during the campaign gives a speech over there. Again, they don't necessarily conclude that Mr page conspired with the Russian government, but they say there's a lot they couldn't figure out about. What page was up to during this time and part of what's interesting about both of those characters is you know dare is a world of people who are trump supporters who have adopted a counter narrative about some of these guys to support the idea. This was all witch hunt and all a hoax that maybe they were set up by Western intelligence agents with the goal of getting the trump campaign and this report really rejects those conspiracy theories out of hand guess they May. Not have conspired directly with the Russian government but the report presents their activities as plenty concerning, and the kind of thing at the FBI might WanNa take a look at. I'm also curious about if this report talked about Roger Stone, especially considering the fact that his sentence which just commuted and so he'd never even went to prison for what he was convicted of. Yeah. Exactly. I mean president trump basically said that roger stone was unfairly treated. That's why he commuted his sentence but this report. Again accepted by both Democrats and Republicans basically endorsed everything that the molar team found about Roger Stone and essentially endorsed the facts which brought about his conviction. They say that the trump campaign was very interested in figuring out what wikileaks had, what's stolen documents. wikileaks had access to that they were interested in that and seeking information about that even after people started saying would some. Credibility that those documents have been stolen by Russian intelligence that they maximize that information for their benefit. And that the trump campaign came to believe that Roger Stellan.

Initial Reactions Vary To Biden's Choice Of Kamala Harris As VP
"Election in 2020. Unlike anything we've ever experienced Joe Biden, who will be nominated next week in a mostly virtual Democratic national convention, announcing that California Senator Kamala Harris will be his running mate. They had their first appearance together Wednesday, and Wilmington, Delaware. Everything we care about our economy, our health, our Children kind of country we live in. It's all on the line, and with that history was made the daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, Harris will be the first black woman and the first Asian American woman on a presidential ticket. Women across the country weighing in on the choice Commission. Grant is a professor of Harris's alma mater, Howard University in Washington, D C. Surely the attacks will come and I hope that It'll be the case that women around the nation not just black women, but all women will have this woman's bag. Keisha, Middle Mass is another Howard professor. If they get elected, which I hope they do, will actually be able to help him govern like a true partnership. And I think that's really important for America to see that black women are good partners that we will do the work that we will be aggressive and more currently, being a black woman with ambitions is not a bad thing. Georgetown University Vice Dean So Eka Colbert tried to figure out why it was such a monumental moment. It's difficult to decide for her. Because we're not used to seeing black women in these roles. She is a 10 black woman elected to the U. S senate. We have never seen a black woman on the Supreme Court. She is the first black woman to ever be on a major party ticket as a vice president. What I'm suggesting is that perhaps our inability to see her has to do with our vision for our country. And our third reconstruction. We need to reform that vision of the nation. President Trump also weighed in with his opinion. She is a disaster. She's going to be a disaster. I think for their party, and so did the man. Harris will eventually debate Vice President Mike Pence when he spoke with farmers in Iowa on Thursday, Senator Kemal Harris said she would change the dietary guidelines of this country to reduce the amount of red meat Americans can eat. Well, I've got some red meat for you. We're not gonna let Joe Biden and Kamala Harris cut America's meet next week, Harrison Biden will be nominated by their party to take on Pence and Trump will be nominated by their party a week later, both at party conventions that will be online on zoom on radio on TV on our phones, but not in person.

LLC and brokerage services provided by FIDELITY BROKERAGE SERVICES LLC and now one more thing the candidates and it's that Diehard Hillary Clinton supporters say they're backing in twenty twenty when I first started the story mattered was like well isn't that kind of obvious isn't going to be Elizabeth Warren and I was like I kind of thought that too but I I think I might be a little more complicated than that so my name is Carolyn Kitchener and I'm a staff writer for the Lilly so in the aftermath of twenty sixteen. There were all these pieces that people were Ryan about why people voted for Bernie or for Tom and no one ever talked accused people who voted for Hillary so -til. Da Is I think what anyone would think think of. When you say die hard Hillary Clinton supporter she was one of those people who was out there at the polls in her white pantsuits she went to the Javits Center where the Hillary Clinton Election Night Party was and you know to sixteen really inspired her to become become an activist to get involved in politics in a way that she had never really been before so now coming up on twenty twenty. She is the throwing everything she has into the campaign for Senator Kamala Harris. I'm supporting Kamala Harris for a number of reasons. I find her key. Be An incredibly dynamic compelling exciting kid one of the things I find so so impressive that Senator Harris is the fact that she has has the second most endorsements out of any candidate. You Know Biden got the first. He's a former vice president. That's kind of like okay. I get it but the fact that she's getting all these endorsements shows that people the thing that they can work with her and they wanna be able to work with her. She thinks it comal Harrison Hillary Clinton have a lot of similarities. She talks about idealistic pragmatism they both are she feels very inspiring candidates but at the same time they're they're practical. I think there are some stylistic similarities between Senator Harris and Hillary Clinton. Certainly you saw a lot of former. Hillary Clinton staffers gravitate quickly Tacoma Harris. Jon Allen is a political reporter who has written a couple of books on Hillary Clinton. He's really the definitive Hillary Clinton expert Harris has struggled in terms of raising the kind of money to Hillary Clinton did the base of hardcore. Women supporters that Hillary Clinton had have have split among different candidates and so- Harris really hasn't capitalized on that the way that I think some outside observers had expected that she he might so one of the women that I spoke to was very interested in Joe Biden. She said you know this is not about being inspirational. This is not about being historic. This is not about kind of a unique moment. This is about winning this is about beating Donald Trump and she felt very strongly that we needed a centrist to do that. We needed somebody who could bring voters back from the other side and she felt that that was absolutely no question. Listen Joe Biden. They might be focused more on who they perceive to be. The most electable and those voters might be more inclined to support somebody like Joe Biden. Jennifer Lawless is eh politics professor at the University of Virginia who focuses on gender and elections and she said that this woman I spoke to is pretty typical. Among some Hillary diehards. There's this perception that people are unwilling to vote for a woman and it's unclear that that perception is in any way rooted in reality. Hey it's not only at the presidential level but in congressional races dating back decades now when women have thrown their hat into the ring they've been just as successful as men in both primaries and general elections on both sides of the aisle so the perception that women might not be electable is really just that it's a perception in politics of course though perceptions perceptions drive behavior so people don't think a woman can get elected. It can become a self fulfilling prophecy so I think in general the number one priority among Hillary diehards as most Democrats is beating Donald Trump and every single person that I spoke to said that no no matter who the nominee is they will come out and they will vote for that nominee by one of the experts. I spoke to Jonathan Allen. He wasn't so sure if you're someone who is is a diehard Hillary Clinton Fan. You will die hard before school vote for Bernie Sanders. There's no love lost between bring those two camps most of them would vote for Bernie Sanders over Donald Trump in the general election but I think some of them would probably sit on their hands. What I think is really interesting about this. Group is that in two thousand sixteen they were so energized and passionate about about electing a woman president the first woman president and now we see that motivation kind of on the back burner it is secondary to beating Donald Trump.

"Politics are in a stalemate again after voters went to the polls for the second can time in five months so at the moment around ninety one or ninety two percent of the vote has been counted but it looks like a dead heat between in the two largest parties which are Likud Netanyahu's party and the rival party which is blue and white headed by former army general bennigans and they are both gained thirty two seats in Israel's Knesset over one hundred twenty seats. I'm Ruth Egg Lash The Washington Post correspondent in Israel and the Palestinian territories. You're covering the Israeli election right now and and as I recall there was another election in Israel just a few months ago back in April. So why is this happening again. Basically Israel a a parliamentary democracy and there are many many parties in the Israeli parliament with around something like ten parties ten twelve parties who who actually make it into the parliament so when when the voting takes place no one party wins a single majority enough to form a government so last time Netanyahu we are who wasn't in a position even though he won the election only by a few votes he wasn't in a position to former majority that would allow him to create a coalition and instead in previous situations scenarios that has happened the person who is not able to form a government will then hand onto another one of the other candidates and in the situation that we had here in April Netanyahu decided that he would continue he wanted to try again and his loyalists in the in the Israeli parliament moved to dissolve the parliament and push the country to second election which has never happened before in Israel's house history and from my understanding one part of why that was so surprising was just because Netanyahu is such a political powerhouse in Israel that some people thought that he was unassailable and the fact that he couldn't manage to get a coalition government demonstrated a new political weakness that people haven't seen recently well. It was a combination of factors. He is really known as the Political Houdini in Israel or king BBB and but they're there you know it really comes down to the numbers and if there are not enough people that could support him and it's a very tricky situation. You have many different elements. Eighteen is really society. You have a large minority of his of Israeli Arab citizens. You Have Ultra Orthodox who are about ten percent of the population and you also have a large contingent of immigrants from the former Soviet Union who are a highly secular so that was where some of the like a sticking points came up. When that's the was trying to form his coalition lost time and that was really the point that secularist politician Abdul Lieberman who in the past supported Netanyahu said that he would not join a coalition with the Ultra Orthodox that he would make a stand for secular issues in Israel and that was what brought down the government or brought down the negotiations for the government last time so where were you when results were starting to come in on Tuesday night the polls in Israel open from seven. Am To ten PM concerns and I was in the Likud headquarters the campaign headquarters when those results came out and what I was there I spoke to some of the Likud Knesset members NBA's. I spoke to your quiche who is very close with Prime Minister Netanyahu. I know able to make government. It'd be nice even during full third election. I don't see I don't I don't see guns is making government. I also I also spoke with Sharon Hess Gal Gal. She's also a Knesset member for the Likud and she said in politics anything can happen and this no tool can occurred of asking asking Netanyahu step down if he doesn't bring the enough votes from it what is going to happen the next and what is the situation say about the state of Israel right now well. I think it's anybody's guess what's going to happen next. As a whole number of different scenarios from Netanyahu leaving the Likud party eh which seems unlikely from one of the other players agreeing to sit with him and a coalition that would boost his numbers to majority so there's many many any different scenarios at play but I think what it says what the results say about Israeli society in general is that it's more polarized than ever before that you have to who big blocks that are ideologically right wing and ideologically left-wing Ruth Egli covers Israel and the Palestinian territories for the post on Wednesday citing the political uncertainty in Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu canceled his trip to the United Nations where he had been expected to meet with President Trump.

We know that some coaches are going, and some coaches are staying we're also seeing some new coaches to we know that Jackson state was actually looking for a new head coach, and they have now officially named one one that was already on the staff. John Hendrick is the new head football coach they're going to remove the interim of from his name is he was there coaching. The latter stages of the season for Jackson state and had them in contention of a chance to play in the championship game. Jackson state Tigers really came on in the back half of the schedule. And for that, John. Hendrick has been rewarded with the head coaching position. Someone who has resigned is my London at Howard University. So he is no longer with the institute. After two seasons at the helm of the Howard University football team. He joined two thousand seventeen and led a team which had won three games the previous two years before him coming. So he has since resigned. And now the hunt is on for a new coach at Howard University steal what a marquee made in that very short period of time. We will remember last season kicking things off with how it travelling out to a Nevada Las Vegas and just shocking. Everyone football by coming back with a victory in that game in the Howard program was raised to a different level. Now, let's see if they can maintain that or take even higher, but they will have Mike London to thank for his tenure there by helping to really lifting elevate the program there at Howard another school that is now looking for a head coach is Texas Southern University. So their coach Michael Haywood has also resigned, and they are now looking for someone to feel that vacant head coaching position. We know that.

It kind of seal the fate for for coach Haywood will be interesting to see going forward who they will get to come in and lead the Texas southern program and make them be competitive once again, but there'll be a prime job in the southwest that little conference to see who gets it and one coach who is staying put is Tennessee State university Nasrat read some people would thinking that coach Reid might be departing after this season. The Tigers finished with a record of four and five and they had two games cancelled due to hurricanes and also an emotionally draining season with linebacker Christian abercrombie's severe head injury. That had to leave the team, and he's continuing to recover here in Atlanta, but still want him to stay on. And of course, he's his tenth season at Tennessee State. Overall record is fifty three and forty seven but not good in the Ohio valley conference. And I'm sure there's what tissue boosters want to see them improve their twenty seven and thirty nine during his time in conference play.

"So get started in March of this year. Hundreds of students at Howard University took over building a they released a list of nine demands and occupy occupy the building for nine days until seven of their demands were met I spoke to Alexis mckinney. One of the organizers of h resist the student movement responsible for the occupation of building a Alexis is my niece. I'm here with Alexis Alexis mckinney. Who has just finished up her senior year? At Howard University. The thing is though Alexis Texas probably caused more trouble at Howard University than the administration ever thought she would. They're probably happy to see you. Go what do you you think. They'll probably definitely happy to see me. Go administrators at Howard and they know your name. I don't know it's a good thing when the administration the knows your name it can be a good thing in a bad name. I'll probably have a couple of files. Two thousand everybody there right so yeah yeah so I understand that you were. One of the lead organizers for h you resist the whole group that took over the administration building holding this past year at Howard University so my I mean my first sort of question what you know it was sort of interesting to like. Oh she's on buzzfeed speed away she's on. NPR AWAIT CNN. Okay like how I mean. How do you get to the point where you decide? Hey I think it's a a good a good idea to take over the administration Building at Howard University. So tell me like how did how did that idea ever even start so h is we actually started back in February of last year when we A few students we noticed the university aligning itself with the trump administration And so that's when we said I listened to man's and this year we had a second list which was backed up by a survey that we did with eight percent of the undergraduate population over five hundred people. And I think we always knew as we were organizing that we've been ended up taking the building because Direct Action Shen and protest is really the only way that our administration listens or even pays attention to the students in a serious way. I'm and it was also continuing a tradition that had already existed incident Howard so the first Occupation of the building happened in nineteen sixty eight fifty years ago and then the second one was in one thousand nine hundred nine and so there was a legacy of students taking physically physically taking back our power our economy over our university and so we definitely wanted to continue in that tradition and it was the most plausible way to get demands. Met which we did get seven of the nine minutes okay so you talked about it from an ideological standpoint but from a process standpoint Dan boy I mean like really like what do you do. Okay so what are you saying. Hey let's all meet at the bottom of the hill at nine. AM So how did that part happen. Right right so The tactical part of it was actually one of the hardest parts of just getting in the building because the we had released our our our demands a week before we actually took the building so the university knew that we were going to do something And so what we did from a logistical standpoint. Was We had a rally out on the. The Yard is kind of like a distraction to kind of. Wait wait wait did you say wait. Did you say you had a rally on the yard as a distraction. Yes yes and also to help us get more students mobilized to get in once we got the building so we had the rally out on the yard and so throughout the day starting at like ten. Am We had students students trickling into the building to already be there and be able to let more students in and so by the time it was. I think three o'clock three or four o'clock we had about fifty students inside the building waiting for us to act. And so we've made the call. We just rest the building. Everyone that we have from the rally came from the yard the Abilene we rushed the building I think in that point. We don't know we had a good amount of people. The whole bottom floor was pretty full. We originally the building And then a few of US went out on the RN. Said Hey we're able to come. We got food coming over because we did have. We order pizza that night. We have pizzas donated and just guy people. That's how we got people in. So so how did the administration lead So I think there was a lot of campus police still in the building for the first few days. Actually actually we were finally able to get them out but we administrators leave And I think the building may have already been kind of closed because it was like a Thursday so people leave early a lot so around thirty so by the time. We'd actually taking a lot of initiatives. Were already out so once. They walked out the door. You what closed and locked the door behind him. How did that work? We didn't lock the door for the first few days We had we had students at the door And only campus police really maintenance people were allowed and we had students like guarding the door but then after we got him as police out. We didn't let anyone who didn't have to ninety inside the building. We had students stationed at every entrance of the building every hour. Oy for security so you took over the first floor. How many floors are in the building? Four force so how did you move up to the next floors lors After the first night I think your the first or second night we just know people spread out and just you know kind of go up in. We control the building so we had full access to the building and so we actually had the first floor with kind of general. We had a lot of activities in the basement floor. We had some activities so it I five floors. Actually 'cause there's a basement And we had a lot of activities and there was also a sleeping area there too and that became actually like the queer. LGBT NON gender conforming folks space to sleep so they can feel safe and then the second floor was the fim only florus only theme identifying people could sleep and be on that floor and the third was kind of anybody and that was the quiet floor and the fourth floor. We really didn't let anyone go up there because that was the president's office and a lot of files there's for legal reasons like we don't want a lot of people going up there just in case anything came missing or whatever so okay sounds like a really good plan. I understand that the attorney who had worked on the previous takeover go over served as an adviser for you this time. How did that work? Yes so Donald Temple who is an amazing lawyer who has a law firm in DC. He we met him actually actually last year when we first started organizing And he had given us some legal advice. I run into him on campus because he's also a Howard alone And we knew he had the history of representing ending the students in one thousand nine hundred nine as well as you do see students when they took over the president's office in Nineteen Ninety And so we called him and he came and he was there every single day. Hey helping US supporting us. Spending a lot of hours just to be in I give us legal support. He lives in every day of negotiations. I remember one night. We Finish Negotiations Association's about twelve. Am with the board of trustees. And then I was working on some legal language like one. AM and I. I remember recalling him and saying hey can you look at this real quick for me. Sorry I remember telling him you know you look at this language for me real quick it was like one. AM and he's a yeah. I'll do this and get back to you for him so I took a net. I woke up. We got we linked up at like four thirty more emailing back and forth and then I started my day like seven and so that was just part of his commitments are caused which is really beautiful and I still talk to him. He's become a mentor for us. So it's been really good. Were there other people like that. Who helped out provided counseling and advice? Yes we are only lawyer but we had an outpouring of support from the community so we had black lives matter and B. y. p. one hundred The both these chapters they came they brought legal observers. who were there? The whole nine days twenty four seven we had a medic room setup that was free charged with medical trained. Medical People Were there twenty four seven seven. Who actually stayed in the building with us We had so many donations. I'm a food we we have a weekly food pantry on the Sunday that we were in there we were actually able to do our food. Who pantry and feed over five hundred homeless people just from leftovers perishable leftovers and people were making sandwiches in the kitchen and people uber's out into the Northeast and southeast DC not and gave out our food that we had because we had so much so that was really beautiful? Just the support that we got from the community. So how did you guys wrap everything up there in the end and so we had our press conference well before the press conference We went out to the students who are out there and kind of presented the agreement that we come to when voted on it to make sure you know we were all good with what was happening. Wanted to maintain the democratic space that we created And then we had. We signed the agreement with the president resident on the fourth floor and then we had a press conference and then we had to basically clean up because we had nine days with the community. You know we didn't leave so there the sleeping bags food all this. We spent that time cleaning up as a community and then We had our little chance of stuff when we we've finished at like ten o'clock at night and we had so much stuff leftover but we did a little champ. We took a picture in front of student flower flag. That was At the front of the building We live right it cool. So do you feel like it was success. Definitely definitely I think even besides the fact that we got seven of our nine demands met It was the only one that you didn't get met. Where like the trustees and the president resigning yeah exactly? I think beside had that it was a it was a demonstration of power and a very physical tangible way and I think there are people whose lives were changed by being a part of that people who never thought about protesting or organizing or being involved in any kind of thing like that now. Their life direction may change and the community that we built while we were in the building building. I mean we had open MIC nights. We had a study sessions tutoring Healing circles we have art gallery on the basement floor. That just popped up because students WanNa really do that and so just that creativity in that community that we fostered. I think one of the biggest successes of our movement. Wow so I've even read that. Some people people think that what you did conserve as a model for what students might be able to do at other universities. Yeah right during during and right after our occupation to other schools started their own takeovers and sit in their own university so we did Spark some political action which is really exciting winning and really encouraging for me as a student organizer And I definitely want to help. Spread that knowledge and that experience that we've gained through our year of experience Onto other students who can do similar things and get things accomplished at the school it's really necessary especially Hvac us because we need it all right cool anything else. You WANNA AB I think Just that you know while we were successful. It's really important for us to always know that the work is not is not Over much work to be done at Howard and beyond And that there is power and being a student and and collective work and organizing. I think our movement demonstrated that and then it's possible anywhere uh-huh..
