She would appear as a twenty year old. So there were times when i was making surviving r kelly that i had to deal with our carries owned biography. Which of course included incredibly we. Painful sexual trauma. He himself of course is the victim of sexual abuse but i had to also look at how deeply manipulative worse after two thousand eight after that trial. He took to forcing coercing women to write boss. Confessions and all of these things added up escott. Frankly i'm just became more regis More bold you know with the kinds of crimes that he was committing against that girls women and it was time for decades. And i'm so proud that you know black girls night. Dorando pays now black women. Find the courage to sit for us under these underneath these hotlines for hours on end to share her story to reopen live that trauma which is so hard and i hope that this does begin a healing journey to the mall and not just the ones who set for camera. I talked to dozens of women to cooperate. The women whose stories were on camera. Who didn't want them and dream. I'm wondering if you could talk a little bit about the resistance. Saw that you you encountered in terms of developing the series that you made and also if you could talk about the reaction in the in the african american community over the years there's been a difference in how of folks in the african american community viewed the allegations and charges against r kelly verses to the general population. Take the second question. I mean black. Women are in the black community and black. Women have led this fight for justice for decades. I think about someone like jim. Derek artists who has rothley stayed on this be and he depended on black women coming forward on him on opening up in sharon is incredibly painful abuse with him. I think about the founders of dr kelly who worked back to sanction him to boycott divest. I think battle you know. And so. That's what i have to hold in my heart. I been black my whole life. I'm from detroit. I know what rape culture is in our community. And i know what it is in the larger country Include in a global context. And it's exactly what the support of our kelly mudslide it. It is about Disbelieving testimony after testimony over decades. Frankly of black women if it means protecting a black man from right frankly unjust criminal system is complicated from start communities incredibly complicated some here and now. I can't remember the question of on the issue of the resistance that you encountered in the making your series. Well you know i. We were working for lifetime and they have a particular audience. And i think that these women testimony in some ways might have been out for the network. But they're trying to do something different This documentary in idaho to bring in some of this get resistance from the network necessarily but i could not get the president of jive records.

The police were comedy in the past the parents to do a wellness check and he was able to shuttle the girls. I'm out of the studio. So the or the police show up for wellness.

She's a journalist covering gender and immigration. Many that it only in the thick orla. Maria all jamila and thank you so much for having me. Here representing chihuahua than their orderly. Before we get to the conversation. Folks remember that you know if you hear any dogs cads lawnmowers. Garbage trucks sirens. You know. we're respecting the quarantine recording from home. So it's all women today on the show because we're gonna have a conversation about reproductive justice and really what's up with the united states local and it begins to feel federal government to. That's just kind of coming after our rights. And that's because of the recent texas law that went into effect on september. First which prohibits abortion once quote unquote fetal. Cardiac activity is detected. That's as early as six weeks for most people actually less than a week later after texas had made that decision the supreme court of mexico unanimously ruled that criminalizing abortion is unconstitutional. Which is a pretty historic decision. I certainly i've got a lot of a lot of emotions like about all of us so we just want to start with. Doing temperature checks an element here the thick when we can just be real about how we're processing it as as cities manos nina mama's. I'm beside gandhi. Go like how are you doing. What is your temperature check. You know i was absolutely distraught about the situation in texas and knowing the work of so many activists and how they have for the last decade since rick perry was an office of poured so much of their precious time into combating these horrific draconian laws knowing that they were fighting a ridiculously uphill battle. I mean that was crushing. You know some of the activists in a bassole folks with the west fun and folks with the latest ration- of parenthood and other organizations have been doing tons of work right in their little corners to provide care for people and that made me really sad. You know it's like you're just adding another ton for people to carry just so much more that they have to do in order to continue to provide care because they're going to continue to provide care and then when making go came through always like you know it was like yeah as making. We can say all kinds of stuff about the mexican government right. There's there's a lot of problems therefore shore when it comes to human rights when it comes to the rights journalists and the rights of women. But this was one of those things where it was like. Then you guys see you guys in the us right like we need to have a regional hemispheric approach to thinking about social justice movements I did think of it as a human being. But also my scholarly research energy jumped in. And i was like i wanna know about what prompted this. You know for those of us here who aren't constantly keeping up with the news and makiko. It did seem like not so out of the blue because there have been right. Oh for yeah dude. Less either lead this. Yes that's all. We need to say women who took up arms and we're fighting the mexican revolution. So this notion because american mainstream media does not cover Latin american feminism period and certainly. Not mexican feminism. But it has been there. And i frankly am proud to say that i'm i'm kind of like a product of that so hell yes. Latin american feminism has been leading the way. And thank you for that lena. And let's check in with you but only got like what's your temperature check. Almost dust commoditised tests indian though for my temperature shack. I will say rather than say that. I'm right now. Lake on the red red with anger. I feel more green right. I feel i. It was the decision in the supreme court of mexico. That kind of broad this kind of hope that we are going to see some change in our country. Also all of these reporting that i did with a series of abortion in a border came in a time where all of the cards were shuffling. Right so right now. It's a matter of of time and to see what kind of hands we're gonna get. And so in general as a reporter. I kind of like m feeling the adrenaline. Knowing that a lot of mobilization a lot of marches are going to happen throughout out this month and we already know that also a marriage is going to happen in el paso on october second which yes and so in general a reporter. I'm ready for because maybe we all remember. That thing called the women's march which was like the largest mass mobilization of human beings. I think never maybe thank you for that. But oh nica forgiving us. The sense of will people who menstruate allies are responding. Jimmy that i do want to do a quick temperature. Check with you how are you doing. I am feeling inspired. Actually going back to what was saying. Like i am really inspired to learn outside of the. Us context the us. Context is very boring to me right now..

"Welcome to the horse. I haven't done this for a while and and this is. it sound off. Hi welcome back. It's nice to be back. Well coming back with a bang. We actually made sure. i mean. we're like marie coming back this week. After jamila king crushed it and then it's like something big happen. Which is you know as you know. It's a little personal for me. This one it's a little personal so our topic is the resignation of new york governor. Andrew cuomo who said he wasn't gonna do it all right so last week. Who got into the new york attorney general's report and that's the report that found that in fact he had sexually harassed eleven women as a result of the report his top aide melissa derosa who was at his side. I mean like cheek. that would be gum. That would be kind. Cheekily stuck to him. She resigned last sunday two days later. It took governor cuomo a long time to. He buried the lead. He should've started by saying. Hey everybody i'm going to resign. And then said everything instead. He kind of buried the lead and took him a while to say the word resignation. And then it's like here's my two weeks notice new york tough means new york loving and i love new york and i love you and everything i have ever done has been motivated by that love and i would never want to be unhelpful in any way and i think that given the circumstances the best way i can help now is if i step aside and let government get back to governing and therefore that's what i'll do because i work for you for now. Lieutenant governor. kathy hotel is going to take his place. She's going to become the first woman governor for new york some state. Lawmakers are still hoping to proceed with their impeachment inquiry into governor cuomo even after he resigns because that would basically bar him from ever running for statewide office again. Because you know these these white men they do fall up they to fail up right follow they late to fail up fall up okay while komo's resignation probably is going to mean that there's not going to be any kind of moved impeach him now he's still does face possible criminal investigations for his conduct including his administration's handling of cove in nineteen. Yeah yeah. I think it was on this show that i said longtime ago when this was first happy i said well there might be a way for this guy to it in the bud and that would be completely own up to it right now and to do the. I'm gonna be the governor cuomo who was with you every week except that governor cuomo is going to be giving you updates on therapy that i'm doing to understand why and how i became a sexual aggressor and i'm gonna take you into my therapy and i'm gonna tell you about what it's like to deal with this with my family and my daughters who are in their twenties and i'm going to bring you on this journey of owning my responsibility for white men of privilege who feels like he can touch women inappropriately corner them if he might have done that from the very beginning. Maybe new yorkers who had developed some kind of a relationship with him complicated might have given him pass but instead he went well the cuomo route which is wait. I did something wrong who me. Yeah but let me ask you this question as a media person covering things. What about kris chrome well my goodness. What are your thoughts. Zwane well so look to be honest with you as you know. I've been kind of in the thick of reporting and when you're in the thick of reporting on the ground my you just mentioned are show titled shit. I just said it on my also. Yes on brand tam. I should go away more often. But anyway chris cuomo so i didn't know like the whole cuomo chris cuomo thing. I didn't know sip caper for whatever reason and then i was like. Oh no he did and Oh no he wasn't. He was what 'cause you can't play like that you can't like i just think that that's at a point where you're talking about a governor where you're talking about an investigation where you're talking about giving him legal advice media advice and then you're not coming clean about it and you're not saying on your show by the way i will never talk about this because i am actually giving counsel to my brother again. There is this thing called transparency. I think that we at full doodo media. We are about transparency. It's important to say you know. This is a time. When i will be a little transparent. If you don't mind me. Because i come from a political family in new york city biaggi. Yes and we've we follow the komo world. And here's the thing knowing what i know and trying to understand you know being in new york and being in sort of that political world back in the day when i was like a teenager. I'm not surprised that this is what happened. But what's fascinating about. All this money is how even a year ago. I i was like. Oh maybe he should run for president pittock clad fuck and said that i think about that sweetie. It's because we need to recognize that we were in a state of trauma and good politicians. Actually because he is if you label a politician somebody who knows how to move the people per se. He found his spot right there. Yeah you're telling me that you could be so smart in terms of being a good politician that is able to quote unquote move the masses by manipulating okay. Yeah propaganda using your voice using your talent using that few a few. Let me talk about my family thing. And then you're stupid enough to be touching women inappropriately you cannot have it both ways and you know what women okay. White women are complicated. We know that sisters we need to step up payroll labrada is a. We're not taking it anymore. We are not all right. Let's move on to our second topic. We're actually going to turn to the latest in congress. What's been going on in congress but let's just step back for a second. Something actually happened in congress this past tuesday actual action. Wow yeah the senate voted to pass a one trillion dollar. That's with a t and it's a bipartisan infrastructure. Bill that includes funding to rebuild roads and bridges expand high speed internet across the country and it also invest in infrastructure to prepare for environmental disasters caused by climate change so okay infrastructure. Week actually happened. Finally the bill tasked with support from both democrat and republican senators including senate minority leader. Mitch mcconnell so. I'll also yells to this. That was good. Thank you but while this bipartisan agreement showed unity in the senate on tuesday then on wednesday in fifty forty nine vote with no republican support senate. Democrats adopted a three point five trillion dollar budget proposal that focuses on a more. And i'm quoting from legislators human infrastructure and it includes more funding to directly address the climate crisis as well as funding for healthcare immigration education and paid family and medical. Leave so the vote. By the democrats who do have this narrow majority in the senate because of the to independence bernie sanders and angus king. Who vote.

"That we're denying basic human the ability to get educated in receive healthcare access if they so choose again our republicans claim to be. The party of prolife will if you are the parkfield pro-life beef for children doll denied information access to like stay health care opportunities there and say their lives. Julio that's so real for me just the fight over information and particularly for people of color to get the information. They need to keep themselves and their loved ones safe year. What do you think about this. This is all preventable. All preventable people just got the vaccine and the fact that you have conservative individuals who are cheering low vaccination rates who are allowing misinformation and. I still don't think that the white house the government has really done as effective job. It was almost like okay. If you're vaccinated. Take your masks off. We're good but now you're seeing los angeles county there reinstating indoor mask mandates right starting this weekend and that's for everyone and that's regardless of your vaccination status you know what i mean it's like i don't know if we're doing this full court. Press that we need to do. And when you think about places like detroit or even like a place like flint michigan. You know. There's issues if you take the case of flint. One dr cedric taylor. Who's associate professor of sociology. At central michigan university has actually been serving michigan residents and he believes there is a link between vaccine hesitancy and the flint water crisis unanimity saying that so many people lost trust in public health authorities. So how do you win the trust back. I'm not going to go into the trap. The communities of color. Don't want vaccines. Because i think that's really inaccurate but this is about access this is about looking at this differently. Are we doing as good of a job. we're not right. Did we have a good couple months. It was really nice to not wear mass. But are we going back to it. And and it's preventable. That's what. I'm saying it's preventable. Yeah to me. Trust comes from consistency right and when you talk about flint and folks seeing how wildly inconsistent our government is in responding to public health crises. I wanna see the same sort of level of urgency around you know folks living with hiv aids or you know any particular health crisis happening in a community of color that may not be as impactful to wealthy white people in new york city right. I think that consistency is really important. And i think that that's how you trust back right and it's gonna take a long time and the thing about this moment is that don't really have that time. And that's really scary. Yes it was a nice month. Or so julio you know out here with no mass hey it was nice. Run high five all right. I'm in.

So awesome that you guys just say I was thinking about this this podcast years ago and we called so much of what's happening in America right nine we actually have the records to prove it just like the audio records of trump. We have the records to prove that we called a lot of this four years ago two, thousand, sixteen I feel like it's five because I've aged horrible fifty. In our minds in two thousand fifteen but it came to fruition in two, thousand, sixteen but. But. Yeah we did we and one of the things that we talked about which we all have talked about is the role of the media and how you guys are getting it wrong in. So many ways we talk about that but let's start off with our first topic so. It was twenty twenty. I think. You know every single one of us is battling some level of low grade or high-grade. Depression? You know he's just kind seeping in for me. The end of the summer is really hard moving into yet another season and still being in lockdown You know also just the weight of these decades, centuries of racism and injustice in this country. and that is kind of the backdrop for our twenty twenty-nine election update. We are now less than sixty days away from the November election I know, right so both the trump and binding campaigns are really upping their games. We think, right. We'd Hoke we know the Republicans are the Democrats. This election season but hey, the pandering has started as well. I don't know if guys have seen this actually was one of the first people notified about this campaign video by by Joe Biden people that are associated with the Joe. Biden campaign it's a campaign salsa song called. Biden. Muscles. Things. Just just. Coming off. Applaud keeps going. By. By then? Okay. Okay. Okay. So Oh God that's going to be playing all over Kissimmee Florida. I'm telling you they're going all in I know the people that created it. Very committed they just basically put Biden on the hook for that stuff right there. Yeah ecological in. Los Angeles. Off The detention facility. So his own campaign song is saying he's about to do that. Yeah. So and then the other thing I just wanted to add. Yaas who Maria interviewed. And frontline, we talk about this I think all the time you know the Obama deportation policy she was named to the transition team of Biden's campaign and all the immigrants, rights, activists, immigrant lawyers that I know I know you guys have been following. This are just there's a story in the hill people need to read it. They are up in arms about destroy. So there's a lot of questions about the Democrats right. Right it's it's yours to lose and I have nothing personally against Cecilia when yours But I did interview her and it was a moment that was very challenging Was You know? Talk me down 'cause right now I'm feeling like the. Vote. We are combined this immense electorate and it's like. Are you kidding me twenty twenty? I've been talking about this since the first time I covered politics in what in the early nineteen nineties. POC voters taken for granted.
