"Who is the founder of pre visible. Jordan asked, what marketing channels do you see as areas for growth that won't be disrupted by COVID in 2021? Okay, here's John's answer. I think a great untapped area for growth is good old networking. Now, a lot of people get networking wrong because they think that they're going to network with folks to find customers. Find clients. But networking is really all about meeting with folks who can introduce you to customers prospects and clients. Now, you don't have to just think Chamber of Commerce networking. Networking is all about finding people who have your ideal customer in mind who maybe have them as their customers and figuring out a way to offer great value to that person. Maybe you provide a service for them or maybe you provide content for them or maybe you actually agree to do say a webinar for their audience. You can do this over and over and over again and in many cases get introduced to literally thousands of prospects by good old networking with content by adding value. Thanks, John.

Admiral, ecommerce marketing that actually monetizes. All right, here's my conversation with afua aben associate professor and department of marketing chair at Howard University. I thought welcome to the martech podcast. Then I'm so excited to be here. Thank you so much for inviting me to chat with you about why marketers need to listen to black voices. I'm excited to have you as my guest. I'm also excited to be chatting in front of the inbound 2021 conference crowd. We're trying to do something that's a little unique and incorporating some audio into the conference experience and not only is this to me an interesting topic, but an interesting format for us to live some marketing message and materials. So are you ready to do something new and exciting for the inbound crowd? Yes, I am and how low to all of the 2021 inbounding. What's up in batteries we're excited to chat with you. So look, we've got a lot to cover in terms of marketers, diversity, why black voices need more attention, but I want to start off talking a little bit about you, who and what you teach at Howard University talk to me a little bit about the marketing program and what you're up to at work these days. So like you said, I am the department chair. I've been in this role for two years before that. I was an assistant professor before that I was a PhD student at University of Pittsburgh. And I came to Howard because I realized that I had an opportunity to shape and mold the brightest minds in the world and have a positive influence from their lives in that way. So I'm so excited to be here. We're doing a lot of innovative things specifically around hands on experiential learning. So for instance, we participate in a university wide program between Amazon Studios and Howard University where our students get to go out to LA for semester. They get to gain hands on experience and knowledge related to the entertainment industry and they also get to intern within the department. We're also partnering with companies like Steve Madden to enhance our retail curriculum. Our students are actually going to be able to host a pop up shop, sponsored by Steve Madden. We're also launching a sales fellowship in conjunction with Vanguard. And we're doing all these other really exciting things to make sure that our students are as competitive as possible in the marketplace. I love the idea of experiential learning because one of the things that helped me become a better marketer was actually working on marketing. And I already had a career in marketing, but I had to basically leave my job and start learning how to do things myself to become a more effective marketer. Sometimes you can't learn everything in a book, you have to get out there in the real world and learn how you want to become a marketer. One thing that I noticed you didn't mention as you were describing what you were doing and who you were working with, you said the brightest minds in the world, but Howard is a historically black college. So there is a subset or a segment of the population who you are specifically focused on black students, primarily. Talk to me about how that makes teaching marketing different focusing on a specific segment of the population as opposed to a more sort of universal and diverse population. So a fear things, yes, I set the brightest minds in the world and I want to stick to that. I didn't disagree with you for the record. But I just want to clarify for the audience. I'm not saying the brightest black minds in the world, but I'm saying the brightest minds in the world. I truly believe that our students can compete with any of the students across the world and I feel like some of the world's greatest innovations are housed in our students minds. But going back to your question, I still am amazed when I sit down and I watch TV and I see how whitewashed advertising is. And I sometimes will sit there and count the number of advertisements that I see that just have white people or white passing people. And I'm like, how do these companies expect to build relationships with people outside of these communities when they don't show them in their advertisements? And that's just one example of I think the challenges that we as marketers are facing. And even if you look at something like advertisements for eye drops, you'll see that most often, people with green and blue and hazel eyes are featured, but they are actually a disproportionately small percentage of our population. So I sailed that to say, I think that we as marketers have to do a better job as it relates to inclusivity and actually making this inclusivity authentic and from my standpoint as a professor, I have to communicate to students why their voices need to be heard. How through the skills that we are giving them and their lived experiences they can enhance delivery of marketing assets, the stories that marketers tell and ultimately positively.

Driving Diversity in Economics With Fanta Traore

That brought up a lot of questions for me related to opportunity and resource distribution. And in hindsight. I know that these are all questions. That are central to economics. And just to give you an example of the kind of questions. I was thinking about growing up. I was wondering about. When i cross crossover from manhattan into harlem why the neighborhoods was so different. Why the harlem side wasn't as clean as say the manhattan side for instance in the way. I rationalized this as a young person. Was that this had to do it. Politics and to some degree it does so. That's what led me to go into howard university setting political science and also having a focus on african politics because of my mauleon heritage as well but what was really a turning point for me in my economics. Career was when i did a summer program at princeton where a policymaker introduced the concept of economic research to work that she did to us and basically what she shared with that she use economic research to end a food desert in harlem. And when i learned about that i was completely mind blown and so excited to learn more. So i went back to howard and declared a second major and that was economics and emit a mad dash of taking nearly ten classes so that i could now have this economics major but it was one of the best decisions that i've made

New York City Public School Seniors Say The Pandemic Is Shaking Up And Slowing Down The College Application Process
"Carlson. New York City public school seniors are now in their second semester, and that's historically a time to take a breath after completing college applications, But some students are still scrambling to submit essays and complete financial aid documents. W. My CI's Jessica Gould reports. That's only one of the ways the pandemic has shaken up the college process this year. Just a few days ago, Joshua Sr was sitting in front of his computer sending in his last college application to Howard University. I can't believe it a school y'all and This my final application. Wow. Yes, Josh goes to Brooklyn Tech, and he's a superstar. He's an a student with high test scores. He loves biology and Mandarin. He always planned to apply to college and the Corona virus didn't change that. But it did make it much harder. There were no campus visits or college fairs. He couldn't pop by his counselor's office to brainstorm. It's very much me in front of my computer like 12 A.m.. The night are in the early morning hours. This like China, think of things and there was no one to look over his shoulder while he filled out financial aid forms. I was so scared. I was gonna mess up Maybe one figure and You like label of fraud or something. But he says the biggest challenge has been juggling all his new responsibilities at home. Josh lives with his father and sisters in bed Stuy. His dad is a property manager who has been working around the clock since March. So Josh takes care of his 98 year old grandmother a week. My grandma every morning, I'll put her on the heart of party that's next to her bed also helps one of his sisters who has autism with remote learnings. I've had to kind of fill in as a teacher kind of helping her out with some of her homework, he says. For awhile, college applications just had to take a back seat to his other obligations. And experts say that's been a common theme this year. Angelique Figueroa is a counselor with a college bound initiative, a process that would have ended completely in December is now being pushed into January and February, she says. Part of the challenge has to do with applying remotely. She thinks the main reason is because students are under so much pressure, and some of their parents have lost their jobs. So now they have to work and they have to be able to provide And, um, I'm sorry I'm getting emotional, but I think that that is why it's taking them so long because they have to now. Not only be a senior Graduate from high school and be the first in their family. But now they have toe provide financially for their families. Like everything else with the pandemic. The impact on college applications depends on where you sit on the economic spectrum. With no s A T or a CT this year, applications over all appear to be up. But applications by students from low income families, students like Josh, who qualify for few waivers are down. Eric Waldo is with the common APP, which allows students to apply to hundreds of colleges at once, certainly a decrease in applications from first generation and low income students. And that's been probably the most troubling takeaway. He says. It's not surprising given how much families are struggling with finances and with loss. He says. Covert. 19 has also underscored how important it is to go to college. Having a college degree is actually was protected people and giving them the ability to stay home it all from the pandemic. It's been a life or death issue, so to be is that much more important that we you let this be a really a clarion call to all of us to do more to make sure students are applying to school and that they're actually showing up and going to college. That message isn't lost on Josh Sr. It's really just a question of where he'll be going next year. He's still waiting for responses, but he's already gotten a few, including this one from SUNY Binghamton accepted Yeah. First college acceptance ever he hopes many more of these are on the way. Thank you. Lord Jessica Gould w N.

Jim's Recovery Story
"I was born in a little town in virginia in an average religious home. My father a negro was a country physician. I remember in my early youth. My mother dress me just as she did. My two sisters. And i wore curls. Until i was six years of age at that time i started school. And that's how i got rid of the curls. I found that. Even then i had fears and inhibitions we live just a few doors from the first baptist church and when they had funerals i remember very often asking my mother whether the person was good or bad and whether they were going to heaven or hell i was about six then. My mother had been recently converted and actually had become a religious fanatic. That was her main neurotic manifestation. She was very possessive with us. Children another thing. That mother drilled me was a very puritanical point of view as to sex relations and as to motherhood and womanhood. I'm sure my ideas as to what life should be like. We're quite different from that. Of the average person with whom i associated later on in life that took its toll. I realized that now about this time an incident took place in grade school that i have never forgotten because it made me realize that i was actually a physical coward during recess. We were playing basketball. And i had accidentally trip to fellow just little larger than i was. He took the basketball and smashed me in the face with it. That was enough provocation to fight. But i didn't fight and i realized after recess. Why didn't it was fear that hurt and disturbed me a great deal. Mother was of the old school and figure that anyone. I associated with should be of the proper type of course in my day. Times had changed. She just hadn't changed with them. I don't know whether it was right or wrong but at least i know that people weren't thinking the same. We weren't even permitted to play cards in our home. But father would give us just a little tidy with whiskey and sugar and warm water now and then. We had no whiskey in the house. Other than my father's private stock. I've never seen him drunk in my life although he'd take a shot in the morning and usually one in the evening and so did i but for the most part. He kept his whiskey in his office. The only time. I have ever seen my mother take anything. Alcoholic was around christmas time when she would drink some eggnog or light wine. I remember my first year in high school. That mother suggested that. I do not join the cadet unit. She got a medical certificate. So that i should not have to join it. I don't know whether she was a pacifist. Or whether she just thought that in the event of another war it would have some bearing on my joining up about then too. I realized that my point of view on the opposite sex wasn't entirely like that of most to the boys. I knew for that reason. I believe i married at a much younger age than i would have had not been for my home training. My wife and i have been married for some thirty years. Now was the first girl that i ever took out. I had quite a heartache about her then because she wasn't the type of girl that my mother wanted me to marry in the first place she had been married before. I was her second husband. My mother resented it so that the first christmas after our marriage which was in may of nineteen twenty-three. She didn't even invite us to dinner. After our first child came my parents both became allies. But in later days after i became an alcoholic they both turned against me. My father had come out of the south and had suffered a great deal down there. He wanted to give me the very best and he thought that nothing but being a doctor would suffice on the other hand. I believe that. I've always been medically inclined though i have never been able to see medicine quite as the average person sees it. I do surgery because that's something that you can see. It's more tangible. But i can remember and postgraduate days and during internship that very often i'd go to the patient's bed and start a process of elimination and then very often i'd wind up guessing. That wasn't the way it was with my father. I think with him. It possibly was a gift. Intuitive diagnosis father through the years had built up a very good mail order business. Because at that time there wasn't too much money in medicine. I don't think. I suffered too much as far as the racial situation was concerned because i was born into it and knew nothing other than that. A man wasn't actually mistreated. Though if he was he could only resent it. He could do nothing about it on the other hand. I got quite a different picture. Farther south economic conditions had a great deal to do with it. Because i've often heard my father say that his mother would take one of the old time flour sacks and cut a hole through the bottom and two corners of it and they're you'd have a gown of course when father finally came to virginia to work his way through school. He resented the southern cracker as he often called them so much that he didn't even go back to his mother's funeral. He said he never wanted to set foot in the deep south again and he didn't i went to elementary and high school in washington. Dc and then to howard university. My internship was in washington. I never had too much trouble in school. i was able to get my workout. All my troubles arose. When i was thrown socially among groups of people as far as school was concerned i made fair grades throughout. This was around. Nineteen thirty five and it was about this time that i actually started drinking during the years. Nineteen thirty to nineteen thirty five due to the depression and its aftermath. Business went from bad to worse. I had my own medical practice in washington at that time but the practice slackened and the mail order business started to fall off

I'm joined by the head basketball coach at Howard University. He's entering his second season as head coach. There. He was a McDonald's All American. He was a Gatorade player of the year in high school. He was a two time national champion. It Duke, and they open up their season against Belmont on November. 26th. Kenny Blakeney is the head coach at Howard. He joins me now, Kenny, Good. Beyond. How are you? What's up, Jim? How you doing, man? It's an honor and a pleasure to be on your show. Kenny. It is an honor and a pleasure to have you on this show. I really appreciate it. Appreciate you. Listen, there's so much I wanna talk to you about. We're less than two weeks away from the start of the season, but bring me up to date. How are you doing? And what's the vibe like around the program right now? Him. To be honest with you, man. It's a little bit like a crapshoot. Um, you know, right now, from what I understand, there's probably 26 teams across the country that are Paul's because the Koven And here, it, Howard. We're getting tested three times a week. We get a PCR test done and we get a rapid test done on Monday and Wednesday Friday, so we get six results a week. And so far so good. We haven't had any positive tests from our program, but it just seems like you know universities that are currently on campus. Um, we're remote right now. So we only have three sports teams on campus. There is no other teams students on campus. Are getting hit the most, and we definitely think there's gonna be some positive throughout the season on the Miss game. So it xylitol bit of a crap shoot. It's up and down, but right now Everything's cool. I appreciate that response. In fact, that would look at it just that way. Kenny Blakeney is joining us. So if we talk about the basketball aspect, I mean, what an unusual offseason and then over the summer, McCormick er of five star recruit announced that he was committing to Howard over programs like U. C. L, A and Kentucky He could have also gone to the MBA. So what kind of emotions did you have when he made it? Official? It was shocking. Um, I thought we were in there with the corps for a good time. I think, Jim the thing that we didn't know, And that we had questions about was if he would go to the MBA or not, Or maybe even To go to Australia, likely mellow ball and the young man from Texas Hampton. Those were all things that were on the table, but I knew if those options were not the options for him That we had just good a chance as U C l A or Kentucky, Hey, came to campus. He enjoyed himself and you know, we have a relationship with his guardian and mentor that goes back a number of years, So we were really diligent and confident that he would be Howard Bison. Kenny Blakeney is joining us all right. For those who do not know, like, what is he like is a person and as a player. As a person. He's really quiet, but I think he's a guy that really observes everything and takes it all in before. He kind of, you know, gets outside of his shell. Um, but he's really He's really smart. He's really bright. His cousin, con maker plays for that Detroit Pistons. He has another customer tour maker that plays for the D League team of the Houston Rockets. So he's been around a certain degree of professionalism for a while. As a player. Um, he is so, uh, physical and a hard worker. I was really shocked of how physical he is. At 6 11 7 ft in £230. Hey, loves contact, which is awesome, And it's It's great for our team. Um, he's a guy that wakes up at six o'clock in the morning or 5 30 in the morning. He's getting 500 shots up in the gym. You know, after that he does is yoga and he's onto lifting weights after that, and then he practices with our team s. Oh, there's a there's a certain degree of professionalism about him, and he's really driven and understands what he's trying to achieve. Can you blame me is joining us? You know that's really good background for the young man and I think gives a list of an idea of what kind of person he is. You know, he talked also about how much the culture of your program And of Howard meant to him. What kind of conversations then did you have with him during the process about the program and about the university? Well, I think with their university you know, we have a vice president elect vice President elect camel hairs. Who's uh, you know, an alum of class of 86 Thurgood Marshall, the first black Supreme Court justice. David Dinkins, the first black mayor of New York City. Uh, you know, you can go down the list of alums Elijah Cummings, Um Chadwick Bose, and there's so many, like, you know, incredible alums that have walked on our campus. That, you know, we call ourselves the mecca and we have a kind of Ah little bit of a logo for ourselves in the basketball program. We call ourselves the Dream factory. Because we really feel like this is a place where your dreams can come true. So it was war him getting the campus. I think seeing what this place was about Unterman of our basketball program. I think he really weighed a lot on my pedigree and our staff pedigree. Being able and lucky and fortunate to play a Duke University for coach Mike Schatsky having a chance to play the math, a Catholic high school for Morgan Wooten. Um, the places I've been my mentors, Kami am occur. Mike Brey at Notre Dame. Um, you know, I think it was war. So he understood my my background and felt really comfortable with who I was as a person And who I who I am as a coach. You have amazing pedigree. And I want to talk about that Kenny in one minute. I wanna ask you one more thought about this, though, Or one more question A big picture question. What does this commitment to you on your program? Mean, too, not just you in the program, but HBC use overall. Yeah, That's a great question, Jim. I think that you know for HBC using and specifically for Howard University. You know, when I When I was at Duke, I had a chance to see a little bit how that worked with the success of the basketball program. And there it meant more applicants applying for your university, which meant more money for applications. But also you got a greater selection of candidates. You choose from that had, you know higher GPS the higher as eighties. And that's really good for like the Princeton Review's or the New York uh, you know, times were academic. Ranking. Um, Secondly, I think you get a chance for bookstore sales. Um, you know, bookstore cells will increase with with McCord being here. More people want toe. I think, uh, be attached to our brands on understanding that the culture and what he brings to our university and our basketball program. No, we'll have a chance to have a lot of our games. Nationally televised this year, which is incredible on then the last thing I think it brings in a lot of corporate sponsorships and those kind of partnerships. There's a there's a real kind of like avalanche. I think situation that that comes from this, which is all totally positive. You know for Howard and I hope Moment, Um, continues with HBC use. I just saw the North Carolina anti got a top 100 kids a couple of days ago. So the momentum and the changes starting to happen with this movement..

I read an article once on a blog called stuff white people like, and it said white people love dolls because it's like training for children, it prepared them for the responsibility of having kids because they have to feed the dog supervisor's bathroom activity, and then when the same white person actually has children the dog still becomes the most important member of the household because white kid usually grow up to hate their parents, but dog will love the same white parent forever because dogs love whoever feed them don't shoot the black messenger.

You went to Jackson state both part of the historically black colleges and universities systems. When you talk about your experiences in at those schools like what what are you talking about? How how kind of bond is there because of that experience? So for me, and and I think that the Senator would say the same for me. It was just the richness of what the university had to offer was yes, predominantly black students steeped in a really really deep culture of civil rights. So I had the opportunity to have professors who were snick organizers who had spent freedom summer in jail in McComb sippy. I had the opportunity to be a part of the Fannie Lou Hamer law society in so it really did frame. How I thought about social Justice in was the beginning of my socialization for what I would do and could do with the rest of my life. And I think that the Senator experienced a similar. Set of a similar environment at Howard in. It's an incredibly life changing and very influential experience.

Okay. I thought there was going to be like a big. There's no twain, really. So you're the youngest of three kids. I mean, what was your childhood like, and it sounds like you had somewhat of a political awakening in college. But I'm curious if that was something that was kind of your family life growing up to at all. No, it wasn't my my my family was pretty basic my mom worked really hard. My dad died when I was sixteen years old he had heart disease by the time. He passed away he'd had six heart attacks. He had a stroke. So he had had a heart transplant from got a new heart from an eighteen year old who died in a motorcycle accident. So my life was really lived through the eyes of a caregiver. My mother was my father's caregiver in the last two years of his life and having to understand what families everyday go through. When it really when it comes to issues like healthcare won't seeing your mom as a caregiver, you went on later in life to work for the union, you which has in home care providers and nursing home workers, and he was an inspiration for you. My my mother's story really was the precursor to my professional career. Not only was she did she work as a in-home caregiver for my father. She worked the eleven to seven shift at a nursing home as a CNA. She also worked as a as an armed security guard when we lived in New Orleans at some of the most dangerous projects in the city, and she. Is an incredible woman who just showed me the strength of what it took to put your family on your back and do everything you can to make more opportunities for your kids. And so did it have inspire me to work for you sort of sort of? I would say it inspired me to think about how my life was bigger than my own. Did you I mean growing up? It sounds like obviously your family's working class. Did you feel poor? Like was that something you are aware of us a kid? I wasn't you know, I felt so richly loved and poured into I had teachers who cared about me. I had neighbors who looked after me. I had you know, every friends, you know, that we just sorta shared stories. So I didn't. Yes, we were you know, in hindsight now, I realize we're right. And so, but but no I always felt like I knew where my next meal was going to come from. Did it mean that my mom? Was on food stamps. Sometimes. Absolutely. So I know what those choices like for working moms. And I think some of that stuff is what really inspired me to continue to work so hard for the women that I worked for it. You just a reminder. You're listening to political breakdown from kqed public radio. I'm Scott Shafer here with MAURICE law goes our guest today is political consultant Lafont Butler, and before we are before the show started. We were chatting, and because you you kind of glossed over you were a labor leader, you're the president of you. And now, you're a political consultant and while we're chatting, you said you went from I asked you what the difference was. And he said, well, you went from a position of authority to a position of influence. What do you what did you buy that? Look the there. Three hundred sixty thousand work in women and men in the state of California who were caregivers who trusted me with their dues money with their resources a with their the political capital that they had earned in in their fight for social and economic Justice. And they gave me the opportunity to be a voice of thirty on their behalf on issues that they felt like needed to be addressed in their lives and the lives of their families and communities, and and going from a place where you are the decision maker in partnership with the member leaders and the staff team to actually be in a position where you have to use the influence of the principal for whom you work right to get things done, and you have to think differently about how you build consensus across the organization or the campaign to make sure that the values of the. Candidate are being lived out up and down the organization. It really is more about the sort of soft skills of influence. But I mean, I've always thought like somebody is a journalist who my life's work is like asking hard questions people in power you were on the outside for a long time pushing people in power to do things like is it hard. Sometimes you ever worry about running your mouth or pushing back too hard. Or is it it is. I it's it's a challenge. I have to think more about it. Honestly, I, you know, my relationship with Senator Harris started about ten years ago when she was running for attorney general, and there are not a lot of labor unions in LA who were willing to endorse her because she was running. Larry. And so. It was and so we we sort of came into each other's lives as peers in having to adjust is is has been an interesting adjustment. But I I can't think of anyone anyone else that I would make that kind of change for. So you've been in this new position for since January. And I would imagine you went from a place of being president of which has a fair amount of structure to a place where I mean campaigns just crazy, right? And it's only just beginning, you're laughing. So like, what's the how do you navigate that difference? Draw a lot of boxes onto paper to make yourself. This is like to make myself believe that there is that they're structured. No, look. Senator Harris, she's the attorney general she was the DA. She is a woman of structure and an or an organization in a lot of ways. And so being able to sort of work with our incredible team that really has been put together Juan Rodriguez. Our campaign manager done a really really good job recruiting top talent across the country. And but it's a struggle. It's it's it's it's a change. It's a shift. It is. It is it is it is so worth it really really worth it. Well, I wanna talk a little bit more about your time at SEI because you really influence and most of our listeners would not have any idea of this. But some of the biggest sort of wins for not just labor, but I think you guys would say working people over the past decade. I know that you were really involved when Jerry Brown, I got elected in the whole prop thirty fight, which was basically labor had come forward with a millionaires. Tax a far more sort of expansive tax on wealthy people. And you were I think at the table cutting the deal to go with Jerry Brown's a little more regressive idea which included sales, tax and income tax hikes. And then also later on when you guys wanted to go to the ballot to raise the minimum wage you of deal with with the governor to make sure that that came through the legislature. Can you just talk a little bit about like those sorts of negotiations? And like, how do you walk into an office with someone like Jerry Brown, and there's no one and open those conversations because you guys had a pretty big leverage over them. Right. You're like we're going to the ballot. We have all these members we have this money. In addition to the greatness of of of our of our governor. He was he also had a really good team. And so I it was the intimidation for me was less going into a room and talking with Jerry Brown was more. Conversation rolling until the room and and doing negotiations with Nancy McVeigh. And Nancy McFadden taught me so much about. I mean, and we were often on opposite sides in a lot of position. And a lot of our position she likes you. She he taught me the grace of leadership Nancy never lead from a place of haughtiness, but she always live from a place of humility. She always wanted to find ways find places of common ground. She always put the people of California. I, and so it just sort of kept me grounded in the fact that we were not in AMIS that we were not frankly, even on opposite sides we had different opinions, but we had the same destination. Do you think that like part of that with someone in that position to is that like for Nancy, I think, and you know, I covered for a long time. She wanted to do the best op she could do for her principal. Right. And so like carrying that out. Different than coming in with your sort of personal mission that you have going on in. They're like, I would assume that's helpful. And maybe you had a little of that too. Because you were speaking for all of your members, not just yourself that. That's what I mean by by the common destination, we were both working for the people of California. She represented way more than I did. But we all came into rooms of tension, and disagreement and negotiation with Californians in mind, and the best of califor- Californians..

"So diversity and the media. We're actually on. Yeah. Bursary in the media is a hot topic shockingly after White House Washington Post reporter, Chelsea Jane's covered Senate, Kamala, Harris speech at harasses, alma mater and Howard University. Now, the speech was attended by the aka sorority that Harris pledged in college who gave her their trademark ski we call. And then prompted the reporter to tweet members of her Howard sorority are in the room and screeched when she mentioned her time there did not expect to hear screeches there. She was immediately kind of called out on social media of not knowing about the ski wing. So question this was she the right person to cover the event. Do you do your homework if you know, and apparently both folksy about all women talking at all our screeching to some people in the media. We just open up our mouths were screeching and hysterical. So that I would like to just change coming out the gate. We were talking about in the meeting that I have always wanted journalists for every network in publication to have a gun beat to have someone who actually understands guns when God forbid a shooting happens or anything with gun legislation happens people will actually understand the difference between I don't know at assault rifle this dummy assault rifle. So I don't have a problem with diversity with journalists in general, I think everybody got everything wrong in two thousand sixteen and having a whole new swath of journalists coming in as good idea. I mean to put into context, I'm a member of alpha Kappa alpha today is our founders day. That's why I'm wearing a sweater at this nineteen okay? Percent. Yeah. No one thousand nine hundred eighty one. We were founded today is our founders day we were founded one hundred eleven years ago where the first black. Already me just. That was not a great one because my voices. And what was shocking to me was if you are the report or following Kamla Harris, then at Howard University, where sorority was founded, you should know that she's a member, you should know that that that is our sorority calls back, right pink and green did know that she must not have. It sounds as though right? She just didn't know the screech. I don't know. She said members of her sorority. I mean, you ski you ease or call. I could save what you might not know that little detail. I mean, not every report a every single I'll higher room is doing it. I remember just to try to. I mean, this is something that I think you should know Michelle Obama's in a I mean, this is not rocket science. And the interesting thing is and the reason there is an AK as because black women weren't allowed to join white sororities in one thousand nine hundred eight so it was a matter of ten sixty was allowed to join a a Jewish sorority. I wasn't allowed to join other sororities that kept me out of many sorority. They wind up this point of this is that the the the question is do you have the right person would have to be a black reporter? I report this story given that this young lady apparently didn't know that ski was to be reported and his heard flop and informed reporter. I don't. Yeah. And informed or someone that does the reach, sir. He was demolished on Twitter for that. So in a way, I think it was a good thing to happen. Because as the in beds are all getting ready to go out and cover the twenty twenty campaign. It's a lesson that it shouldn't. I don't think you need a black person to to represent a black candidate. If anything that keeps you in your own world. I think we need to keep learning from each other. But to your point you've gotta know who you're following. But you got a bunch of men cheering on a male candidate. Are they screeching? No. Well, this loaded words screeching hysterical. They're things that are said about women in general was this was a woman writing about other women. So the question, I think women are immune to attacking women. But the question still remains do we have to doesn't have to be a person of color or could would an informed journalist had a better feel for what the hell?.

"How do you do fellow kids? Hey, their kids here as comma Harris doing her best rendition of how do you do fellow kids? Hey, it's kinda Harris. And this is my mood. A song. That has always made me dance. Check the rhyme a tribe called quest. I'm talking about fives. A song that has to be played loud. Because you have to hear the bass the sun is shining by Bob Marley and the Wailers. You're right. 'cause is shining and. A song. That reminds me of Howard University, my alma mater, the mecca the real h you. Push it by salt and pepper. Because it was a real hit song when I was. Favorite song from my childhood young gifted and black by read the Franklin a song that makes me think of my birthplace Oakland anything by too short. Tim show. A presidential song for anyone one nation under a groove by Funke deli one nation under a groove. The only thing I agree with her on there is I actually do really like fun Delic and I do like one nation under a groove. Everything else though. How pathetic let's just go through it because she's really giving us a glimpse into what this twenty twenty campaign is going to be like first of all she's laughing too much in in to identify away. It just seems contrived. I don't know if it's contrived I suspected is. It's that Hillary thing that. I'm likable, look likeable. And casual I am. It doesn't play. It. Also shows this entire campaign is going to be going for identity politics. Look at what she highlights. She spends a huge portion of one of the song segments talking about Milena mater Howard, University, historically, black the mecca the place the real h you I think she's referring to Harvard University. Although Harvard doesn't call itself H you, but she's drawing that dichotomy. She's saying, I'm a, you know, she says one of her favorite songs ramp, young gifted and Black Sea. That's me. That's what I was. I was born in Oakland, Oakland, very very black very tough city, very tough town. She's smart to do this in a way because that's our only shot to do anything to become president. She has to play lean into the intersection -ality vibe, she has to play race politics. I mean, she actually doesn't doesn't have to do it in a in a normal political structure. She's fairly intelligent. She's had a good career. She should be able to run on her own merits. But in this day and age in this democrat party, she. Can't do it. The one trouble. She's going to run into an identity politics. She's not actually black American in in the way, we would refer to that. She's half Indian and half. Jamaican? Her father is a Stanford economics professor from Jamaica. Her mother is a breast cancer scientist. So it really cuts she she's playing it up as though she grew up in Oakland, and you know, rough and tumble and young gifted and black. But really she grew up in total privilege and she didn't grow up in Oakland at the age of seven she moved to Canada, she moved to Montreal. She lived in Canada until she went to college. And so she totally grew up in Canada. You've got another ocasio Cortez thing. Here. She grew up privileged intelligent half Jamaican half Indian. She's a lawyer who was in Canada. And she's going to pretend now to have grown up in the mean streets of Oakland, a career politician who is trying to reinvent her identity to play into. What is unfortunately going to be an identity politics based democrat twenty twenty presidential primary. It's too bad for her. She actually does have a lot of Prudential's. She's had a good career. She she could run on the merits if this were any other time, and if she were a member of any other party, but she's not and I fear for her. She's not likeable. She's not casual she is she's the poor man's Alexandria Kazuo Cortez like the really poor man's Alexandria, ocasio Cortez. So I think she's going to flop on that point. You know, entity really matters these days, especially in presidential politics, especially after the age of Donald Trump or in the age of Donald Trump, and she's going to get hit for in in in authentic representation of upbringing. It's it's going to happen. It's not going to come from Republicans. It's gonna come from other Democrats who are going to say, she's not not the real deal. She's not offensive enough..
