Gamestop, Reddit, and Robin Hood: How r/WallStreetBets gamed the stock of GameStop
"Is what is game. Stop so the game stop. I'm most familiar with is in this terrible strip mall in iowa city but as a place of physical place usually located in a mall of some kind strip mall or otherwise that you physically go to buy physical copies of video games and now as i think everyone is aware it is totally possible to buy video games online now right and what that means is that the physical businesses at malls have been in trouble for a minute and then the pandemic happened and that made things worse because people are staying home now. Game stop has been shorted pretty consistently for quite some time. Because a lot of people think it's going to fail for the reasons i just outlined every time someone says a stock has been shorted. I nod my head of Yes i have heard the explanation shorting stock means it is. It is a complicated thing. Where you you buy the stock and then you lend it to somebody and then they they hang onto it and then you buy it back and if the stock goes down the new win and yes i i do understand this no i don't i don't get i don't understand. Hope works so the t. l. d. r. explanation is that shorting stock is betting that it will go down and the mechanical way that you do. This is you. You locate somebody who owns a stock and this is usually an institutional investor because they tend to be pretty by hold. They don't do a ton of traits. And when you do this you are paying that holder fee in order to borrow okay and so what you do is you pay them the fee and you borrow their stock and then you sell it and then you wait for it to come down and you buy it back and you give it back to the original people and the difference between the top and the bottom is basically what you get minus your fee right. So yes i understand. I understand that yes i mean this is. Let me put this in a physical way because it might be easier okay. Let's say that. I borrow your iphone. Okay it's a brand new iphone. And i from you and i say i'll give this back to you in two weeks and during that time apple has just a fire sale on that specific kind of iphone. And so what i do is i. I sell your iphone at the original price. And then i go buy the cheaper iphone and give it back to you. Okay okay. I understand the difference between those things is my money. Got it right. So that's what they're doing but with stocks so everyone has been doing this two game. Stop because you know it's it's it must be failing business so there's a bunch of investors shorting the stock and i just want to. I wanna stop right there. Yeah i want to ask two questions threshold questions wine. Do we actually think. Game stop is a good business right like we're now completely untethered from that question on this thursday afternoon like we share. It has nothing to do with game. Stop as a business anymore. But i don't like all of us are bound by the virgins ethics policy. We cannot trade in stocks in companies. We cover we don't index funds. Which is its own. If you read matt levine's newsletter bloomberg comes with its own weird problems like that's basically what we were allowed to own broad mass market index funds. If you listen to show you know are always disclosing things. That's your disclosure for the day. But if i was to be sort of person who could buy stock. And i was like betting on the market. I'd clinton gain stop. I haven't heard that name in a while. I bet that sox going to go down. I shouldn't buy it just like i buy all my games. Digitally i'm getting a. Ps five like the only one who bought a digital edition. That's just who i am us. Only by two games a year. so it's not videos. Is it a good business. Lists like is there. Is there case games to get better. Yeah i mean there is a case. I don't know enough about the space to be able to tell you whether it's a good case but there is one and the cases that game stop also has an online way of selling games and it's been growing a lot and a couple of weeks ago. This guy who used to be the ceo of chewy. They're bored with two other people and so the the bull case the case that this is going to be a good stock is that these people are going to turn it around and they're going to create this wonderful online business for game stop and then you know they'll close. Maybe some of the mall stores in the turnaround will let game stop. Be good again.

Intensive scare: covid-19 ravages America
"We're likely to lose another two hundred and fifty thousand people dead between now and january this week grim headlines and milestones in america the daily covid nineteen death. Toll hit a new record on wednesday. The infected patient count in hospitals asked one hundred thousand for the first time the contagion has now reached every corner of the country with ninety percent of all. Us hospitals in areas designated as corona virus hot zones cases have topped a million in florida texas and in california governor gavin. Newsom warned of worse to come just in the last fourteen days close to one thousand californians have lost their lives due to covid nineteen. The bottom line is if we don't act now. Our hospital system will be overwhelmed. We don't act now will continue to see a death. Rate climb. healthcare systems are becoming overwhelmed in ways not even seen during the pandemic's panicked early stages in the midwest things have been particularly dire with intensive care units filling up doctors and nurses exhausted and in many places. The public just isn't acting in a way that will stem the tide right now across the midwest. We've seen a surge of cova cases of people being rushed into hospital. Adam roberts is our midwest correspondent in states like north dakota. South dakota is when talking to health workers in those hospitals. They've been telling me that. Icu beds are at eighty percents. Ninety percent occupation ensured. The hospitals seem to be getting quite full and sometimes quite stressed and how have the hospitals in the region been preparing for this surge. I spoke to several health. Workers including dan rooney. Who's with the emergency medicine department at the university of iowa hospitals and clinics. That's in iowa city and his hospital because it's an academic center is just about the best equipped in the state. It's been doing everything it can to clear. Space to let covert patients have as much from his possible. So inpatients have been sent home when they can be. They've added extra. Icu beds that being postponing elective surgeries and dr renee told me that it's being taught and go from the outside. It sounds like okay. Everything was handled any sort of at the moment. But it's just hard to convey how close you are to going from just being able to barely need it to be overwhelmed and the fact that has been handled so far has been partly down to the actions of frontline workers. We've been lucky of the health care system to mostly not quite break. But i think people be shocked about how close we get and just what it takes in terms of individual level responses to make the thing keep going so from what dr wendy says. It sounds as if the public doesn't really know how bad things are at the moment. Yes don't worry says. He worries members of the public and governing. Politicians just haven't grasped what happens when hospitals get to full take for example the impact of canceling elective surgeries as a common misconception that those are surgeries onto poulsen until the no pressing when you hear hospital canceling elective surgeries. That means people potentially with cancer. Getting their tumor excise. It means people that have gallbladders either heart disease or vascular disease that need intervention that are putting them at risk of really bad side effects and sickness or death. That's real that's happening. So when the hospitals become overwhelmed is not just covid. Nineteen patients who suffer. It's the rates of excess non virus. Deaths that also could search and what about the situation outside urban areas like iowa city. I mean the situation. Equal kind of across the region. No is is not equal. So what you see. Is this interrelationship between the big hospitals in places like iowa city and then rural places small hospitals. That might just have one doctor one us now these rural hospitals. They're under great strain. Not least because many of them have closed in the last decade or so around one hundred thirty rural hospitals across america have closed and that puts a lot of pressure on the ones that remain. They can be overwhelmed with just one two three patients coming in and you can imagine that when covid sweep through a small town maybe a local meat packing plant is affected or prison. Those hospitals are overwhelmed. Very quickly. I spoke to ben christians. Who's an emergency care doctor. In sioux falls in south dakota who said that for the past two months they've been functioning at over one hundred percent capacity of their icu. Beds and they've been adding more beds as well and he takes patients from eighty sparsely populated but Reflected counties spread all across south dakota and beyond and these are patients who are coming in from as far as a hundred and fifty miles to get to his relatively small hospital. And it's not surprising that those places get overwhelmed more quickly than in the biggest cities. And why do you think the situation is so bad particularly in the midwest. What is moving out from the midwest now but the first surge hit the midwest this autumn i think partly because these are more northern states and it's colder weather up here and so people are in those and maybe spreading the virus more easily but it's also a fact that in rural areas in parts of northern wisconsin and the two dakota's people have just not taken serious measures. It's not unusual for me when i've been reporting and wearing my mosque going into small towns to be stead at and for people to look at me as if i'm an alien. They don't want to wear masks. They don't want to do social distancing as winning liz people in the cities and that may be why they're also being affected badly now and the third reason is that politicians in those states including the governors have been refusing to order rules on mosques and closing restaurants and businesses. And so it's not unusual in all of these places to have mass gatherings people going to church people going to bars and restaurants even when the infection rate is extraordinarily high and that must be that much more frustrating for over the frontline workers who are seeing the effects of all that don't originally told me it's very difficult the thing that's been harder as as this has gone on the sense that we're not really in this together as a community as a state a nation you know. We're watching people get sick. We're watching people die. We're watching our colleagues really extended themselves to prevent the system from completely breaking and then to see scenes of full airports full bars to see people talking about their individual liberty with regards to amass. That has been that's been and a lot of the healthcare workers in other places. I spoke to said exactly the same that frustrated. They're exhausted some falling ill themselves but is there a bright side here. I mean haven't health professionals come a long way since the spring and in terms of coping with these outbreaks. Yes so the saving grace of all this is frontline. Staff know much better ways to treat patients for example they're much slower than people on ventilators. They discovered that if you'll put on a ventilator you own you have a five to ten percent chance of actually surviving it and so far. Fewer people are being intimidated than before. It's only the most desperate cases and generally there a better treatments better drugs use of steroids and someone so there are reasons to be more hopeful. That if you are infected you can survive. But on the downside. We've had a big surge in infections. Recently is not just the colder weather. It's the fact that people are getting together as the holiday season and run the said he stands by and he watches in fear. Because the thanksgiving weekend. The past probably is a sign that they'll be more affections and we'll see a big surge in the weeks to come. You know for all the fatalist and say well. It's paying them into a disease. what can you do. You can just look around the world that responses and places have crushed to this and there is no reason that a place with the material wealth and the scientific expertise of the united states shouldn't have been among those countries and the fact that we haven't it's an enduring tragedy. Adam thank you very much for joining us. Thank you jason.
How to go from farmers market to grocery store?
"Hey there Chris. My name is Joe I'm from Iowa City and I've been listening to the show for a couple of years now. I'm still enjoying the ponds. I started baking more during the pandemic and then I decided to try hosting a booth at my local farmer's market. I've been my Vegan bars there for two months and the response is fantastic. I mean everyone loves them and they're sold out every week. Part of me likes the idea of ramping up been seeing how I can achieve more distribution. But I also have no. Idea how to do that. I'm just a one person operation and don't have a budget to move to a commercial kitchen. Hire anyone how can I grow without over investing? Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks. Joe What's up. Thanks so much man. Really, glad to hear your message and yes, we do try to keep it punted mental around here just taking care of business. Now, I have not started baking much myself during this pandemic, but I have eaten a lot of delicious baked goods I will say that I am trying to take one for the team. Fortunately I've also been running more. So it kind of offsets it at least that's how I rationalize it. Now as for Scaling Up, let's talk about these bars. I'm actually working on a dedicated classroom episode specifically about growing a food and beverage. Side Hustle. Because this industry really does present some unique challenges at least compared to growing your APP or your e book or a lot of other things even some other physical products because you food and beverage there's a lot more regulation. There's a safety issue and there's just like a freshness issue and how do you ship it? How do you transport it? It's a lot more complexity. Doesn't mean it I can't work. Of course over the years we have featured a number of people who have really done. Well, it's just one of those things kind of goes from being really simple at a base level like you know making those bars taking them to the farmers market to sell to a much increase level of complexity. than. Move to commercial kitchen or outsource to a CO packer who will follow your recipe to make the product in bulk, and the thing is like most people in this space. If you are going to grow this kind of business at a certain point, you do have to make a couple of key decisions about that because you can't just keep working harder all the time. In fact, a lot of people end up getting burned out and I don't even mean that in a pun mental way they actually just get really exhausted because they start to see initial success and then like there's more demand for their product, you know just like, Joe, saying is. Sold out, and so they just try to keep doing more and more. And you can instantly scale your labor. So. If you don't want to go that route, which of course is totally acceptable. Either way you know couple of ideas. If you don't to go that route, you might consider setting up a second booth at a different farmer's market like in the same area perhaps a bit further away assuming there's more than one in your area and they may be alternating between the two. So in one town, the farmers market is on Wednesday and then the next town over you know it's going to be on Thursday and they do that because a lot of the vendors overlap. You. Could also offer home delivery or perhaps pick up at your home if you're comfortable doing that maybe one day a week or something maybe it's on Saturday afternoon or whatever space is being taken with your day job and the farmers market and anything else. You could offer catering for offices and events as they slowly begin to come back. So there are some ways to expand without going down that route of exploring commercial kitchens and Co packers, etc.. But at a certain point, you kind of have to make that decision like am I going to go down that path growth or just decide? This is cool. You know where it is right now. Or perhaps, there could be a third path. You know I'm all about the third path. Maybe the third path is this project inspires something else maybe Joe goes from saying you know what I? Didn't think I could ever do this thing at the farmer's market, but it's going really well, maybe it's given me a totally different idea entirely. So. The choice is yours just be careful in trying to grow food business and doing everything yourself because it will get pretty difficult pretty quickly.
A New Path to the NBA: Woj on the G League's Program
"Woge? It has now been three weeks since number. One ranked high school recruit Jalen Green announced on instagram. That he'd be passing on numerous college offers to instead. Become part of the new improved G. League professional pathway program. That's what it's called Q. Explain what it is and how it began Meena. It's it's really a bridge between the end of the wounded done era in college basketball in the NBA and what had existed which was really limited options for an elite high school player to do anything but go to college basketball. They put this program place. Two years ago and they started off with players they fell would be first. Round picks were highly regarded coming out of high school. One hundred twenty five thousand dollars a year would be assigned to League team and then you would enter the following years draft. They could not get anybody in that. I really year year and a half to commit to that program. A couple reasons. I think even more than the money agents and those who would advise high school players advised against the idea of going to the G. League where it seven. Let's say eighteen years old. You're going to be playing against grown men in there who played college who played overseas who've been in the NBA back and forth maybe mid twenties late twenties and they would hurt your intentionally hurt your draft stock where you be physically overmatched. It is a difficult lifestyle especially for young person. It's not charter. Flights it's not four seasons and Ritz. Carlton's it's the southwest flight connecting it midway Chicago to get the Iowa City. Adam silver was very moved by the fact that Lamelo Ball in R J Hampton to the top players in this two thousand twenty draft when to Australia next year take my talents to the NBA. Laura Hawks next year I will be going overseas to play an Australian basketball even with the New Zealand. Breaking choke deals in that five hundred thousand dollar a year range and there was not really an option for them. Here there are things we should be doing differently. So that for an American player who decides college isn't for me and I want to spend fulltime devoted to the game of basketball. That's my best chance to be in the NBA. There should be an alternative opportunity in the US spurred silver to push ref- Abderrahim. Who is the president of the G. League she and Rod Strickland Former all-star Mba guard who also works for the G. League in the NBA as part of this program? They've been out in the field. They've been out talking the families players and coaches and they certainly explained to Adam silver. We've got to change this program. So they updated this program specifically for players like Jalen Green. What exactly does it look like now. This is essentially a select team that will be comprised of the players coming out of high school and then veteran players who might otherwise be in the G. League who would get paid comparable salary to come play here. Play a mentor. Ship role to these players. Perhaps players on the back end of their career might like to who might have an I- already on coaching or working in a fraud office will working for the League and also realize that. There's going to be a great deal of scouting attention paid to this group of players. Nba and that. This might not be a bad place for them to still be seen as viable players right now. So that's the makeup of a roster. The coaches will be coaches that people have heard of with NBA coaching experience. Some of them former head coaches and they'll play a schedule that will include G. League teams but not a fulltime jelly schedule. So they'll play perhaps exhibitions against G. League teams. They might play national teams. Who might be touring from different countries? Different parts of the year. I was told they might go to Australia. Where there's an NBA Academy maybe play some Exhibition Games? There and stay there for awhile and train and move around and now the program became more appealing for the top level player. And you've seen now if you players make that leap when you say. It's more appealing in the financial. Incentives are better. How much better we talking? Well Jalen Greens deal with the G. League is around. Five hundred thousand dollars that includes incentives. I'm told that there's a base salary and then there's incentives for essentially just completing. Maybe it's a community service program or a life skills program things that are part of it that they disincentivize financially now. Every player is not going to get five hundred thousand dollars. Jalen green was a number one player in his class. And if you listen to John Devonian Mike. Schmitz are dropping analysts. And I listen to those guys. They tell me that he would have competed to be the number one. Pick in this coming draft and right now he's you know projected to be that in the two thousand twenty one draft so there was. I think a great credibility for the NBA The G. League to get a player that caliber come into this program that he might be a little bit of a Pied Piper for others but they're not going to pay all these guys five hundred thousand some of them the pay more than the one twenty five but they're really negotiating that and remember that. Those players inside endorsement deals. If there's somebody who wants to pay them to wear shoes jailing green again is is a player who see your companies have great interested Not all the players are going to get big endorsement deals and then there is a component that they will go back. There's a partnership with Arizona State and with the NBA. And you could go back and get your degree hate for by the League later on at some point and so those are the benefits of this for players who decide. They don't want to go to college or meetings. In some instances where players become eligible and can't go play college basketball. You mentioned that players. Who Do this can also get endorsement deals? Which at the same time this is happening the NC Double A. Just came out and said were exploring the idea of letting our college players also have endorsements with of course many caveats and limitations this being the NCW TC. All of this is being connected while the shaves but exploring for quite a long time. They always seem to sort of stay in exploration mode. And when you start to dig down into the fine print of what they talk about doing. It isn't what maybe the headline was of of trust. Release or a report about it. I will say this being a part of the. Nba's thinking was that they were reacting. I think a little bit to the Condoleeza Rice commission slash report which a couple years ago essentially said the NBA should do away with one and done. We must separate the college track from the professional track by ending one and done the NCAA stance was that the players who do not want to be in college. There should be an avenue for them to bypass college and that we should take them in here if they don't want be here and so the NCAA on one level has encouraged this of the NBA. Now part of the problem is the NBA and the Players Association. They have not been able to agree on the terms of ending one and done we call on the NBA and the N. Bpa power here to once again make eighteen year old eligible for the NBA draft so that high school players who were drafted may proceed directly to the NBA in theory. Both of them both sides the union. The League would like to end one and done. There was a sense that that this would have gotten done last year. But there are terms of an agreement that they can't come to to end it. And this may be shelved now all the way until the next collective bargaining agreement two thousand twenty four twenty five so for the NCAA right now like this is what they asked for and whether or not they loosen the ability for players to earn money in college or off lightness or however that happens then. I think that will impact this. But let's I still think there's going to be a lot of players who would rather go to college because by the way meaner if you WANNA get paid. There are plenty of places in college basketball that you can go and make money equivalent to what the Julius paying. And that's that's just a fact you're referring of course to the fact that it's an open secret that college kids get paid under the table. Me Knock. I've broken a few stories along the way. I don't think I'M BREAKING MATT. One of your with you right now.
Iowa city has clever solution for flooding problem
"Dubuque is the oldest city in Iowa but when John Dean took the city council on a trolley ride ten years ago it was not to admire historic sites. They looked at Ollie's. Deans does a civil engineer for Dubuque. He wanted to show the city council how to repay the alleys in a way that could help. Prevent flooding in nearby homes and businesses says the city faces increasingly heavy downpours midspan wreaking havoc in areas of downtown so the city council decided to start repaving. It's old alleys with interlocking concrete pavers. They look historic but have a modern twist tiny holes that allow water to seep through into a layer of crushed stone. And that's what holds and stores that water and then slowly releases it. Dean says that after the first six or seven allies were completed. City residents began calling and they said. Can you fix our alley and you make it like once. You guys are doing downtown. And so we some momentum and we started getting interest. Dubuque is now reconstructed about eighty alleys and plans to finish more than two hundred within the next twenty years. That's expected to reduce stormwater runoff from the alleys by eighty percent helping prepare the city for the future while maintaining its historic

Settled all of that in my mind and then I looked up and realized that I was the only kid left in the parking lot so I just started to walk home. Because that's what you did in the nineteen seventies. We didn't have cell phones. Let your the kids just kind of wander home so now. I'm walking home and I'm thinking about the consequences of this kiss because now I'm going to be forever changed changed so I'm checking myself to see if there's any kind of transformation is going to take place and I'm developing contingency plans in my head and case my behavior behavior changes and I can't control it so this is where my head is at and finally when I get to the door of my house before I can barely even knock on the door.

In a coma and finally dies. And that's when my world began to implode because from that day I never went back to that job. I never saw buster again and I never had time to process any of this. Yes because I was too busy trying to share household responsibilities with my mother wall trying to keep up with the expectations of my father and it doesn't even really really hit me until one day. I'm twenty nine years old and I'm on my lunch break and I'm standing in an open air parking garage and the smell of corn comes wafting in over the whole Ohio river and it comes back to me and I start to cry because I remember the last real real interaction that I had with my father was when I slammed the car door. And it didn't make me feel very good. I started to feel very guilty. Eighty but then the corn also bought back the smell. The corn brought back the memory of that delicious kiss nine point seven for technical merit and eight point eight for artistic impression and even kisses today have a very complex emotional feeling that it brings up inside of me of Nostalgia and guilt built and pleasure and it took me a very very long time but later what I realized this is that no oh kiss in the world could ever taint or destroy. My father's love for me or his legacy that lives in me of his indomitable spirit his can-do attitude and his kick ass signature..

"Instructor for the moth community and education programme in a frequent moth host. The Sky was clear in the sun is shining and it's hot and there are lots of people and voices and music and noise. It's a beautiful day at the New York Renaissance Fair. I just finished Selling a four hundred dollar gold dragon ring to wizard dessert from hoboken. And I my boss that I could take a break so I went into the back room. Started to make myself a sandwich. And there's almost nothing more celebratory than a perfect sandwich so putting the Turkey just right and the ladder a little slice of onion tomato just perfectly little bit addressing. Put it the little little pressure just so everything comes together and I was going to let it sit for a minute because you know you gotta let everything Mary. Just my wife comes into the back of the booth and she looks beautiful. She's got this long purple and black skirt and it's got dust all around the bottom and she's got big feathers in her hair and a bodice August So everything is this like Israel nice and she's got A strange look on her face and say baby. What's wrong and she's nothing nothing wrong? There's nothing and she starts to cry. I said baby was wrong long and so she tells me she was over at a cart that we also have where we sell jewelry Over by the jousting arena and and While she was over there she's very friendly. She talks to everyone. She loves the speak in an accent. She does all that stuff. This guy comes up and says hey do you wanna see some pictures. And she says sure her and he shows her on the back of his digital camera starts flipping through the pictures and they're like grainy odd pictures of a a woman in a bath. Tub It didn't happen other Renaissance Fair. And she she wasn't it just immediately. She froze rose. And this guy goes. Hey can I have a hug. And she just runs away and she comes over and baby it's okay a hugger and it's not your fault this. This isn't your fault. Aw Don't worry you're okay you're safe everything's fine. It's not your fault so I go to find my buddy Sean who works for security at the fair and I'm looking all over the place form. I find him over by the Human Chessboard. And he's a big dude has got a kilt on on the big orange. Like puffy shirt says yield security. The and I tell them what happened. And and radios his other guys on his team and they wanna be on the lookout for this guy's like all right. Don't Take Care Sarah. It'll be alright so go back to the booth. I told my boss. I'M GONNA go work at the cart you know and saw I had given Sarah my sandwich because I'm a good husband and so I made another sandwich to take on the road and so we get down there and it's just it's just just bankers. There's all the just all these people all over the place and I'm scanning the crowd and I feel my heart beating and I'm starting to get angry angry And there's a little bit of like a flutter my stomach because I know that it's coming I I'm not an angry angry guy. It took me a long time. I grew up with a bad time. Burn a bad house and it took me a lot of years and a lot of meditation and not other things to calm myself down. And I've gotten a hold on it when I was younger. I played football but I stopped playing football because it was too violent. I didn't musicals instead. Just it was that sort of. I'm just I I don't like the feeling of fighting I've been in. It doesn't matter maybe six fights in my life doesn't matter how many one all of them but like after every single fight I would cry every time because it just an ugly feeling because you're out of control so my my buddy comes up to me and he says hey. Listen we're still looking for this guy. We got reports that he'd been doing it to other people including some like young girls so now we're really looking for him. If you see him Pete don't do anything are all right man. Okay no problem so the. The five o'clock joust is over Spoiler alert robinhood. One he always wins every every day and the queen fell off or worse and then she sword fight it was it was pretty intense and so the crowd is is filing out and they're like the T. One thousand. I'm just looking around at the crowd just scanning and scanning and then I see him I say baby is at him and she just says Peter don't do anything and she goes and hides and now I'm pissed off. Because she was having a great day. She was doing this thing that she loves to do. We've been working on that fair for years. Her mother married name Pepi. Who makes amulets? That's a long story story but like she. She loved doing this again. It was a fantasy world and she enjoyed it and this guy stole it from her and he stole it from her. No one has the right to do that to anyone else on a beautiful day so I walked toward him and the rest of the crowd disappears. It's just me and him and he's got like a little too long back he's gotTa Budweiser t shirt with no sleeves. Jean shorts and I'm just going toward them and I get right in his face and I and I just he looks up at me a a stance and I say show me the pictures and he is i. I don't know what you're talking about and I lean in I say. Show me the pictures you showed my wife and now the flutter is thought to be a starting to tremble because I feel myself get out of control and I'm scared and he says I don't know what you're talking about. I said show me the pictures you show my wife. And he said get Outta my way and I leaned down getting his face. And I'm so close our noses testing I can feel and smell the fear coming out of his mouth. It smells like old copper and I get real close and and I say I'm going to kill you in front of all these people I'm GonNa dig my fingers into your throat and I'm GonNa rip it out in front of all these people he's terrified now mind you I'm wearing these breaches and a big blue shirt and.
Monique Morris: Why Are Black Girls More Likely To Be Punished In School?
"John Henson Junior and welcome to another edition of in Black America on this week's program single rhythm dance the Blues Education for the Liberation of black and Brown girls with author. Dr Monique. W W Moore's in black America. Our research is showing and the research of others and and and other folks who have been engaged in this work both at the advocacy level and at the academic levels. They're finding that black girls are experiencing you know a form of adult education When they're in and out of schools Delta fixation is a term that has been deeply explored by the George Town Center on poverty and inequality that has that shows how adults are are reading the behaviors of black girls to be more adult like than their white peers. Which means that? They're seeing our girls as needing less protection less nurturing less comforting that they are believed to be more independent and to know more about adult subjects such as sex than their white counterparts. And all of this really Begins when black girls are five years old and it peaks when they're between the ages of ten and fourteen which is also when we see peaks in their contact with disciplinary actions in school in the follow up to accrue claim book push out Social Justice Scholar and author. Dr Monique W Moore's has pushed the envelope. Further and in writing or latest book singer Rhythm Dance of Blues. He traveled from Oakland to Ohio and from New York to Iowa City and beyond she described Kanner and love what it looks like to meet the complex needs of girls on the margin in doing so she also a collection of ideas from educators who are tuned to the patterns of Pain Rain and struggle. And who show how. Those working in schools can harness their wisdom to partner with students and help the girls they teach find value and joy in learning far too often these young ladies on given the benefit of the doubt many I misunderstood thereby putting him on the path to incarceration singer singer rhythm dance the blues a guide to move away from punishment trauma and discrimination towards safety justice and genuine community in our schools. US recently in Black America spoke with. Dr Moore's this is actually my fifth book. I did Street novel beautiful for words and then I also worked with Kemba Smith. It's on her. Biographer does right I do. I did read that highest Campbell. Not doing well from all I can see she is. She's threatening. It's it's wonderful to see we're particularly drew you to education. I started my life in education. I was teaching very young. And you know I have. I have sort of veered away from I'm teaching and moved into research and policy for a while Though never fully releasing education as an important focal point in my work and I started to talk more intensely about the the discipline disparities After seeing data that when showing that African American girls were experiencing exclusionary disciplined suspensions expulsions etc at higher rates than their white counterparts. And so oh I understand and have always understood education to be a critical protective factor against contact with the juvenile court or criminal legal system. It's one of the reasons I call it. Freedom Work and when I see these interruptions taking place and this criminalization occurring of our girls it was really important for me to be a part of a community to elevate the issue but also to examine some of the solutions to this crisis thus far what are some of the analysis. We've come up with on this journey. Well unfortunately currently what we've been finding is that black girls continue to be. The only group of girls who are over represented across the spectrum of discipline in schools and at every educational level will in their educational journey and so You know that has Continue to you know sort of lead our inquiry around how we interrupt these cycles else How we elevated in consciousness how we elevated in consciousness of those who are working in schools who have children in schools who are concerned about what goes on in schools but also you know in the course of having these conversations about the problem I have discovered a number of programs and strategies that have done tremendous work with are girls that have you know really discovered pathways in the schools outside of the schools and in partnership with schools to transform the conditions that are really at the root cause of much of the behavior that girls ended up in trouble for in schools? And so it's a tale of concern in terms of wanting to address a critical issue. That really should be at the forefront of folks minds but also I would say you know an inspiring tale of how when we understand. There's a problem and set our intentions to shift the outcomes. We actually actually do it. How did you come up with the title? So singer them dance the Blues Education for the Liberation of black and brown girls. I think the framework of it being You sort of rooted in the musical traditions and artistic traditions at the black community. You know sort of came. Organically to me I ride in the introduction about a grainy black and white video that I was watching a Billie holiday singing strange fruit and as I was discovering what was happening on the road and sort of interacting with with many black women and girls specifically in communities and and you know dozens of communities It occurred to me that obviously what we're experiencing is a form of the blues but that we shouldn't only see the blues as a limited. We shouldn't only limit the blues to entertainment or see it as a vessel for for the expression of pain. I felt that it was important in in observing some of the traditions rooted in the Blues and some of the practices in our own communities throughout up the country to recognize that the blues is a platform for truth telling that would then enable us to really seek and obtain the healing thing that is necessary for us to move forward in this work. You write about in the book that African Americans and and the teenage girl dizziness girls are struggling to realize it. True you a deputy as scholars making net point. What do you see? Some of the detriments is going on in between those four walls. Well our the research is showing and the research of other folks who've been engaged in this work you know both at the advocacy level and at the academic levels. They're finding that black girls are experiencing you know a form of adult education When they're in and out of schools Adult education is a term that has been deeply explored Lord by the Georgetown Center on poverty and inequality that has that shows how adults are reading the behaviors of black girls to be more adult like than their white peers. Which means that they're seeing our girls as needing less protection less nurturing less comforting that they are believed to be more independent to know more about adult built subjects such as sex than their white counterparts? And all of this really begins when black girls are five years old and it peaks when they're between the ages of ten and fourteen. which is it's also when we see peaks in their contact with disciplinary actions in schools? And so it's really important to understand that when we render. Our girls is more adult like than they actually are. Then we believe that. They're in greater control of their behaviors than they actually are developmentally and it just feeds into a cycle where are girls are perceived as defiant and Saffi and loud problematic or bad real words that we assigned to our young people in schools. Are Our girls especially disproportionately renders them vulnerable to being taken out of school. which then of course places them at risk of participating in underground economies he's and being in contact with the juvenile quarter criminal legal system so these are the cycles were trying to disrupt are the readings of black girl behaviors? The increasing ways in which Latina girls and indigenous girls are also being criminalised in schools and also the elements that we can put in place to structure true accountability ability and to really respond to much of what underlies the negative behavior which in most cases with our girls is a traumatic event. Or you know as a sort of set of conditions that present harm in their lives.

Then that would be the best case, right? You'd be treading water. Right. If you're getting further behind I'll accept that versus not buying medication. Right, right. I mean, we're going to buy the medication period. Then hopefully, you're not getting further behind hopefully, you can pick up some side work or some overtime or something else too. Because without? Thousand dollars a month. Coming in extra right now is a lot of money for you. Yeah. That'd be a lifesaver. Yeah. And so I mean, you're probably going to look at doing that sometime in this journey.
