"But i i do think hey. Everyone was locked down. Everyone was shut inside if we if somehow hate crimes are still going. Oh that'd be really bad reflection on the united states so You know in that scenario you would expect them to go down a little bit. Given that people aren't out and doing things might show. I think it's with a grain of salt. But i will take good news. That do you have anything. That are you interested in this week. In terms of good things so recently You know we hit over. Three million people vaccinated today here in the us. I think that's just amazing. If you go back to like march of last year february of last year people were telling us vaccine right. Now we would have we were a vaccine was a year and a half or two years out Very thought that trump would make good on his promise through operation. Warp speed even have a vaccine before he left office and now we're we're looking at situation where there are majority of our senior. It'll be accented where The united states it will be consistently in the top three countries in the world vaccination rates along with with israel and the united kingdom so. I think we're actually you know we've had a really rough year with kobe. Nineteen people are down for. Understandable reasons. i think we're actually gonna start coming out of it a bit here and partly that's due to the genuity of great scientists who work their butts off on this and the systems are actually working russia. Getting these out to people who are actually starting to to recover from this pandemic and i think we should all. We should all be really optimistic. About what the future may. We'll see another roaring twenties so verified true. Couldn't ended on a better note that all right thanks for joining us and remember to subscribe on youtube and your pod catcher and leave us a comment if you'd like i will respond to it personally and you can also like us rightly. Aj on twitter and facebook. We'll see again next week for.

"Right i think we mostly agree. That subsidies inflate the cost. They take away the burden of healthcare provider to actually be competitive and lower their prices. And the same thing's going to happen with daycares like the biden. Relief package is going to pour money. I think four hundred billion you might have been the number into daycares. And it's going to inflate their Their ability to raise their costs. I would like to make sure that people are watching. What the next five to ten years and make sure that daycare prices do not rise because they are going to blame it on the daycares and not the subsidy that they just received this month. It seems like all these big government programs have these kind interventions. I read one study about the fifteen dollars. Wage said it would increase the cost of childcare by thousands of dollars. So i guess. I'm just skeptical. You can really use the government at all to advance these causes. It seems like there's always second third order consequence. Putting money in people's pockets does not fix the problem of the high cost of living right. So that kind of goes to the. Uba question because a lot of this seems like a precursor to a universal basic income. Debate the direct checks to americans start before trump left office to me is who's been following you. Bi for a couple of years now and getting progressively more interested in it. As i go. I was like oh this can work the government actually sort of good at this. They passed the law and then like less than a week later. The irs sent me money. That's nuts i didn't. I didn't honestly think they were capable of doing something that quickly. Now you send a billion or tuna dead people and mentor like you've pointed out the fraud and you can. You can continue to do that. But i was impressed and i was like if we can do this and we could possibly get it right and americans like it is there a case for restructuring our entire idea of welfare and work fare towards. You know it's really interesting in that. There have been a few studies of other places that have used. Upi so iran. The country of iran used the in alaska. They have sort of a basic income paid from a combination of like oil and also like the state investment fund. And what's really interesting. Is that i think conservatives made a critique of welfare is very prominent in the eighties and nineties culminating welfare form that welfare basically created a discipline to work. We're talking about Afdc which got turned into tanith. What's really interesting about the research on. Ub is generally does not disincentivize work because it doesn't have income cut off as just a small amount of my. It's given this exact same to every single person Generally like when they studied it in iran when they found is that people kept working but they would use it to invest in their business or they say something like that. Yeah it was like andrew young campaigned on this right at thousand dollars a month every american and nobody would listen to him when he said no one can live on twelve thousand dollars a year. They'd be like all them. People aren't going to work and he was like now. It's allows them the ability to make better choices about who they work for and where they were so. I guess i like this idea as a replacement for a lot of the programs we have now do disincentivize work. I mean right now. With these supercharged unemployment benefits you can get a year out after the pandemic was supposed to be temporary right. Nothing so temporary you can get paid..
Exploding Fuel Tanker Ignites Enormous Fire on Afghanistan-Iran Border
"At least sixty people were injured as hundreds of fuel vehicles exploded in a massive blaze that tore through customs post in afghanistan close to the iranian border disrupting power supplies and causing millions of dollars of damage the two explosions at the border crossing powerful enough to be spotted from space by nasa satellites.

"Someone probably did say that to probably an immigrant woman. Probably not saying the people that are not arrogance. The kind of doesn't make sense was insult But someone probably did say it at think that often like with this coming to Catholic type stuff people who in the meetings brothers. They don't kill guilt because they they feel so strongly the he'll what's hot moral licensing right like you'll never righteousness kind of validates them to be able to make some mistakes or stretch the boundaries of truth a little bit. Because it's still the right 'cause I think that's very dangerous thing you know when I started my career working around. Dc elite institutions. That was at Santa for Meghan progress. You call like Obama's think tank working around people work for Obama and Clinton I bear cynical behaviour on basically payoffs incorporations lead. Affairs is the thing that was the worst thing. That role was cynical amoral. Dc type people. I think my personal Understanding that when you're so principle you have signs of righteousness that you can't possibly make a mistake or that whenever you do is serving some Higher moral 'cause almost like a religious science and you can also do really immoral things. I think it was really immoral to smear guy in maple then I think it was. Immoral happened when Covington Catholic. And I think it's immoral. What's being done with the than asking issue if one prison on twitter who wasn't even mistreated for wearing a mask says he's. Kinda scared in a joke almost joking way and it becomes a whole thing that drives national media and air in the millions of people. Perhaps commending people for wearing masks has himself in danger. I don't care how good the intentions were only get responsible after journalism. Yeah but again I. I really in the context of you know Kobe excetera at. I don't think that it's even a less. It's less speculative question is to whether or not it's doing some sort of real harm like there are profoundly important national conversations that are happening now is this protests in in. Raleigh today and I imagine other places might have had similar protests with folks who want to end the The stay at home orders reopen the country is like a a real conversation to be had about whether or not we have the right policies in place. They're real conversations to be had about the risk factors that matter and there is a substantial amount of effort and attention. That's being devoted to to stuff like this. To speculation about the role of race into a particular emphasis on these disparities that I do think is pretty consequential in ways that people don't appreciate Whether or not it's appropriate to do now but we've been talking about this for a little while I love to give you guys sort of an opportunity to close with final. Thoughts are perhaps to talk about something else. That is of importance to you all out as you. But I've been doing nothing but reading rereading Abram Candy column so I had to. Don't do that here so I'm trying to master the art of good pros. That's not how that works out. That words what about US eight anything else you know. I don't know how much people listen to the podcast feel. I imagine most of them are probably sympathetic to the things. Y'All say we're maybe some skeptical. People are dying good number of sceptical people. Listen actually I. I guess one of the things. I love most aid. I wish I wish they were braver. Souls who disagreed with me or at least two were perhaps a little less busy so that they can show up in. Were Yell at me and tell me how wrong I am. I don't I don't Wanna I don't WanNa insist that everyone who disagrees with me as afraid to talk to me. That's not necessarily. They may just not want to talk to me if I'm not interesting enough. It's well you know. I I think I just WANNA emphasize skeptics that. I feel like what the three of us were doing year is. We are not trying to dismiss raise. We're not trying to this inequality I see myself as just trying to understand these issues with greater and greater sincerity in greater compassion right like everybody is being impacted by this Whether it's somebody is sick and is very ill or someone who lost somebody who died or maybe someone. From Chinese American background you suffered from sort of hate crime graffiti on their business or something or all. The people who are losing employment right now are losing hours. I think we should have great deals for all these people. I just want to make sure that we're organizing responses most effective to everybody's needs and that we haven't even deeper sense of sympathy and compassion towards people. I fear that a lot of these sectarian ways of looking at the world where we draw a circle around a certain group decided. This is the group that's going to get most of our exempting rose to record passer we're going to focus in on them. I worry that that in some way is going to reduce our compassion sympathy and and the effectiveness in the death of our response I wanted to be even more. I want an even deeper more comprehensive response to all these problems. That's why I do what I do. It's not because I find myself as like along miniature lives and I'm just going to say that you know. Racism is fake or something like that. There are people who get a rise off toiling in that in that way. That certainly hasn't been my in my experience in my life or or what I've seen in research at those things are rare real. I think the way that we described them contextualized responsiveness very important. Good intentions alone cannot carry the day. I think ninety nine point nine percent of people in the world left and right good attentions I think we really need to make sure we're actually improving things. You know the day with what we're doing it and that's mainly why do I do? That's a great point. We'll gentlemen stay safe. Thank you very much. I think we can We'll leave it there until we talk again.

"How can somebody? Who's black mistreatment? Well because they're different people mistreat each other. They're not they're not mind control by their skin color by their blood type or or so on and so forth and I think there's a there's something else that I don't think I quite this and any article but For some reason I have these days I I was reading the old radio. Reports from Rwanda genocide They've collected a lot of the radio broadcasts because these were to have helped spare people to take hateful actions. Violent ACTIONS. Spur the summer winter. Enjoy genocide Jews in two zero and one of the gentlemen who was actually. I think he later. He was prosecuted international courts He was asked. I wanted these radio programs. Like why? Why do you really think being Hutu to Deutz these like an inborn quality and then he's taking the guy got furious started quoting other people. Who is at all? There's no difference between Hutus and showed us. How can you say that? It's not a real thing. He started saying. They're saying list of the time when you know Hutus did couldn't even own property. Hutus couldn't do this. You can't bring up all these historical grievances from the past to refi reinforced. A group identity collectively at the present right He. Was this lead to genocide right. I don't think anything somewhere that has happened in the United States but at the same kind of fail thought process that people are being treated as collectives history is being used to produce that bears statistical gains have been used to produce that but the reality is there individuals and yes. There are many individuals who are underprivileged. I think many of the grievances that that people who represented who interests were having probably legitimate. But they weren't really zero-sum took these right because if you looked at an individual by individual there's some individuals underprivileged didn't have access a lot of things have a good life they should have had that Everyone should have that. But it wasn't actually a zero sum game between those two groups and I make how candy rights ending how that Nation of Islam Guy was expecting the friendship Towers situation. Play out all. These people are treating life as a bit. Zero sum game between groups were formed in a very haphazard incidental. Almost irrational way. Right like this. There shouldn't be anything to the core of this but you see it out in different weight. Everything from really annoying Atlantic magazine articles around candy which unfortunately have assessed data even government officials to make the same kind of claims All the way up through actual ethnic cleansing and genocide which is what occurred in Rwanda occurred in other places like Bosnia. And I think that's what happens when you start to confuse Treating every individual decently making sure that they do have decent opportunities versus treating Alexandra some games of our life ward in combat between groups. That really they shouldn't exist. In the first place they existed because extremely raises a rational theories created by people trying to justify slavery in the United States or other places in the world try and justify colonialism and yes they did at least somewhat contribute to Integra inequality but it's Kinda hard To put out a fire like that raises on during March justly not an and reinforcing the strength and power groups that really don't shouldn't exist Elliott and at least not in their current form. I think we should be. We should be proud of having different cultures like I'm on a mishmash of culture. I'm considering a third culture kid right because I grew up in the US. My parents Pakistan or South Asian and Bantu Culture is being able to choose what culture and part of what groups. I'm part of a whether it feels natural. Mix them up together. I don't see myself as I have to be defending you know. South Asians Trauma South Asian Muslim being mistreated. I will help them the right thing to do. I think they should be treated equally. But I don't see myself as having to defend that group interest because I know I don't really see what's what's right about attaching myself to defending tribal versus another I it doesn't seem any more right than doing it in reverse to me. I feel like the the one thing we haven't really delved into a and I think we kinda mentioned it and perhaps of sort of brushed it aside because we share some perspectives around these things or at least feel like other aspects of the conversation are are a little more interesting to us. But to the extent people care about these groups in many cases I suspect their defense would be well. The persistence of certain kinds of disadvantage like forces us to care. We are a collective because of what continues to happen to us in the healthcare system. I think it was magazine. that Senator Harris wrote a piece for. Maybe it was today Perhaps yesterday but recently about Infant mortality difference rates of infant mortality and sort of pregnancy related Healthcare disparities between African American women and particularly white women. That's usually the contrast that gets drawn whether or not Other ethnic groups are racial groups. Tend to have better outcomes than them isn't nearly as important as the fact that white people have better outcomes than them. I make a bit of a joke but this is serious matter too many people and it's not the only place where there are these healthcare disparities in those healthcare disparities in many cases persist in ways. That are weird so year after year. We'll see the same kinds of disparities sometimes the gaps narrow but it's gradual and they'll persist across different income groups and those things can be daunting to explain and if not daunting just from other people's perspective. Maybe it's daunting for me because I think things are complicated but from other people's perspective it's just. This is an obvious example of racism. And even if it's not appropriate necessarily to focus on race in the conversation around Kobe. I wonder what you both think about. Our having looked at this I presume at least a little bit. The various categories of of healthcare disparities that do exist with respect to African Americans than any other group and how best to think about those things from your perspectives Tocqueville made the point in the eighteen. Hundreds when he was writing that as two groups of people become more equal rather than becoming less focused. On the remaining inequalities people become more focused on the remaining inequalities as things become more level whatever smaller qualities remain absorb much more of their attention. And I think that's basically true Definitely in in this case If we talk about maternal mortality this is one of the most tragic things that that can happen to. A human being period is a mother to die in childbirth and it has unfortunately been the norm. You Know I. It's been a routine experience for all of human history until yesterday for all intents and purposes Beyond that sure there. There were enormous disparities that. Wbz deploys pointed out. You know at the turn of the century with regard to blacks versus whites and huge ones at that in the context of the racially oppressive laws. You could you. You were wrong to not be mad about in the year. Twenty twenty there is now something like three fold disparity in the in the rate at which a mother dies during pregnancy between black women and white women the way I just said that is one way of framing it. That is accurate but statistics don't interpret themselves. You have to be an informed. Consumer of statistics there in there are like ten different ways to frame any statistical fact so what I just said could equally accurately be said this way over ninety nine point nine percent of black women and over ninety nine point nine percent of white women survive. Pregnancy that three full disparity all occurs after the first decimal point right so in any kind of broad historical perspective. We're talking about a miracle of health that has happened and that the benefits of which have spread to everyone including black people. Like I said if you're beyond beyond that one percent of that point zero one percent obviously it's an incalculable tragedy. For you and your family I. It's not it's not at all something to minimize. How could one minimized but to say this is a system wide problem it? How could it be a system wide problem when over ninety nine point? Nine percent of people aren't experiencing. That doesn't seem right to me. I would like to see a study that looked at individual cases What are what are the factors that lead to these tragedies happen happening rather than using them as a way to just indict the American healthcare system to to the extent? I've had an opportunity to look at these studies in there. There really are lots of them so it's hard to to paint all of them with a broad brush. I will say that they tend to be. The results. Tend to be a lot more complicated than a lot of the headlines tend to tend to suggest the sample sizes and certain other cases might be a little smaller than one might like and a lot of odd complexity conversations that I might like to have about the data and how to interpret it and what it might suggest and the differences between groups that are presumed to be the same but for their race on the differences that might exist that that the researchers are overlooking the all those things municipal but for the most part people arrive at. There's a disparity and it must be because of subconscious bias on the part of the doctor. I didn't WanNa rob you of the opportunity to comment on that. If you bad I think collins points are well taken while made I think I think Komo's said this before one area where I think there is some legitimate inquiry about this is if we're finding these these outcomes. Puteh result of discrimination of some form because we do need to be Mitchell about that. And that's how we have. The civil rights people died too. Great Civil Rights Act was So that we had mechanisms define when people are being committed against be able to bring lawsuits so on so forth. The issue of implicit unconscious biases. It's a little bit more dicey because we don't know a lot about how they actually operationalize in real life like For the most part only study implicit bias. Harvard has an implicit bias. Like whole lab dedicated as we really don't know how it operationalize is into actual behavior like we can measure because it's kind of like a flash or a split. Second Reaction Your House. People call overwhelm net pretty quickly in most real world scenarios There's a psychologist named Susan. Fiske that for instance says that he tried to imagine people's faces vegetables. You can pretty much eliminate the racial bias.

Have you been? Have you been having dark sauce lately? And he's suicidal. Know What's wrong no? I don't wear the mask. I don't wear the mask because as a black man in America. I know wearing a mask. Put ME AT MUCH GREATER RISK. I saw CNN had articles about that CNN and the New York Times. Yeah Yeah there are times. I don't want to okay. It's interesting because it's one of those things. Where is a a speculative feature you write a story like this about the dangers? That people imagine they face. I do not know that there are any reported incidents of someone wearing some sort of medical or even T. shirt Created face covering and being stopped by the police more otherwise harassed because they were wearing this face covering and I imagine we would hear about it if it were so but I mentioned the face mask thing because this is kind of what served as the on ramp for this particular conversation taking place. I guess it was last week. Tuesday or Wednesday we recorded the last of fifth column. It was sewed and on that same day. I guess it was just after Ebrahim Kandi had written a piece of the Atlantic And I think it's at this point. He's written maybe three pieces on the same theme of race and the Corona virus and the was initially speculation about whether or not African Americans were profoundly overrepresented in covet statistics in his piece initially was about the fact that we need this data if we're going to be able to confront racism in America and all of its various manifestations that we need to know whether or not people are profoundly overrepresented in Kovic stats and he wasn't alone. There were other people like Propublica. Who'd been speculating about this and investigating. It is well and looking at some early data coming out of the cities that we're actually reporting this but Nicole Hannah Jones was also concerned about this and eventually we actually did start to get the data and since that time and slightly before of The president of the United States essentially every single state governor. Lots and. Lots. Of policymakers are all very very interested in this story about the overrepresentation of minorities in Cova data. I talked about it here of but both of you wrote things about this issue and we. We had some conversations. I think around the time that the story was starting to percolate but I'm confident that we arrived at our conclusions about all of this on our own so I wonder you all are now. We're about a week removed from that. There was a substantial amount conversation about it and still is. I think it was either today or yesterday. That is not found. She make fresh comments about this and suggests that he just met with Congressional Black Caucus And they were having intense conversations about what they could do about this issue both now and in the future and I suspect we haven't heard the last of it so when even candy wrote the first piece just asking the question wondering out loud whether there would be racial disparities in corona virus. I thought the fact that he asks that question. It demonstrated perfectly the difference between how I tend to think about issues of disparity. And how someone like he does. I assume that there's going to be disparities. However we categorize people all across the board. And the reason I assume that is because I've spent a good amount of time looking at just. Cdc Data on the rate at which people of different races die of different. What I found is that each new disease surprises you. You know one kind of cancer. It's black people dying of more than whites. Who are dying more than Hispanics the next kind of cancer? It's the reverse at any common sense you used to predict. It gets frustrated extremely quickly and what that has taught me is that a disparity is the norm. Not The exception and the more important point. Be The disparities. Sometimes they run in the direction that the naive notion of systemic racism would predict which is to say black people. Die More than whites. Blacks and Hispanics underwrites but they often just go in completely different directions. There are a lot of diseases. That whites are more likely to die than blacks and Hispanics in its rent. So you have to look at these on a case by case basis and whatever you WanNa say about why disparity exists. There is a basic sense in which you're almost asking the wrong question absolutely in my article. I thought a lot. About some of the COURSEWORK identing Graduate School. I had a master's in public administration. Syracuse big part of my course was on statistics on quantitative analysis. And you know I think the first radio here in these classes that correlation does not necessarily imply causation. That's particularly true when you're just looking at one variable So for instance. I think that a lot of the politicians the media people were covering this. They basically looked one variable in a few places they said. Well certain people of certain interracial group happened to have a higher. Higher percentage of people from that group died or contracted this disease than is their percentage of the population Or maybe the death rate is highest for this group Therefore there's something about this disease in this group right near visiting looking at a unit area You know one variable Kind of regression or just one variable relationship and you do that You're often missing the bigger picture because you not looking any other variables right I think for a long time you will do with crime. They would say okay. Well you know. In every in every city the blacks are committing most of the crimes that the black this black eventually. A lot of that kind of raises theory was debunked. Because what they do. This are looking at other variables. As well you know whether it's quality policing of the drug trade inequality Sewn and so forth once you start putting in other controls. The relationship between race and crime basically.

I can put put the I kind of moral rules in this. Be like okay. I find all very amusing even though it's all wrong 'cause they are vampires and vampire do really bad things it's Witty. It's very witty. And and the characters are very You know they're very well acted and well expressed and think you know like I said you can kind of turn your compuserve and turn the world off and.
Is media attention good or bad for Trump?
"These are the front pages of today's three major newspapers. You can look at them notice anything. None of these papers have donald trump on them it. He's in none of the headline that is exceedingly rare in the era of the ubiquitous president and guess what he wasn't on the front of yesterday's papers either look the same entry papers so here's a question i think for both democratic candidates democratic strategist. We're thinking about how to beat donald trump in two thousand twenty and the media who was always thinking about how to cover him particularly during the campaign and when iraq wraps up is all the attention good for donald trump. We're bad for donald trump. Is it good for him not to be on the front page or bad for him to not be on the front page. I think it's incredibly intense debate in terms of how it all sorts out the actors in the media and political system and how they relate to the president here talking about josh marshall editor and publisher talking points memo. Oh daniel moody meals ho sirius x._m.'s weekly political show woke up and jilani cobb staff writer the let me just stipulate that it's bad for him psychologically when he's not the source of attention that we know now politically less attention paid on donald trump. Is that good or bad for don trump daniel. It's i mean it's good for the country but it's bad for donald trump.
Jay Inslee gives up on climate-focused presidential bid
"You're six six days away from the qualifying deadline for the next democratic debate in september so far. Only ten candidates have made the cut. Although there are whole bunch approaching the threshold probably not coincidentally in just the last luik to candidates for probably not going to make the debate stage have dropped out of the race entirely last night washington governor jay inslee. You might have seen told my colleague motto that he's officially out of the race today. He announced he would be seeking a third term. As governor of washington also today former former colorado governor john hickenlooper who dropped out of the presidential race last week announced a senate run. I've always said washington was a lousy place for a guy. I liked the who wants to get things done but this is no time to walk away from the table. I know changing washington is hard but i want to give it a shot. I'm john hickenlooper candidate for united states senate <hes>. That's a very good shot. Although i wonder how many takes took hickenlooper entrance is bad news for the incumbent republican cory gardner who is pulling ten points behind generic democrat right now with hickenlooper enderle gone from the democratic presidential field it leaves just twenty two candidates vying for the democratic nomination. The question now is how long is the field going to stay that big answer the question. I'm joined paula romo's host of vices nex series former staffer for hillary clinton's two thousand sixteen presidential campaign and jilani cobb staff writer the new yorker professor of journalism at columbia university. I think the hickenlooper news is significant because many people have been jumping up and down and pointing at senate races races with to some of the candidates being like maybe you should do this and that's what he did. Yes it is significant. It is narrowing down but i also think that there's something else that is happening. Which is that people people are widening and defining what electability means right so it used to be the case that we elect ability meant that it was just about being donald trump but now it's turning into something else which is why the race will continue to be this massive fight because it's about who can win in who can beat donald trump the right way which is is what i think we're gonna see in in the debates the right way meaning who is centering marginalized communities at the center of the conversation but you're saying that you think that to me implies right. There's a thinking among democrats that more than one candidate can beat exact donald trump. You think that's the case. I do think the democrats think. I think that's what people think which i think that's the important important thing i don't. I don't know if democrats are thinking about what people are thinking in the streets. I know how young people are thinking and the thinking is that we want someone that not only uses latinos and black people blend women as pawns to beat donald trump. We want someone that uses us and that inserts us in the future of this country and that's the difference and that's why i think as you just talked to senator dr sanders like he is talking about. People of color rose out climate change. It's different. It's striking to me that in the number of candidates we still have twenty two. There's going to be this sharp. Drop off as we go into this third debate and i think that like there's a little bit of this electability.

They were on a habit to me that year you had i mean you had two of my teammates. Jared henderson chris johnson toby bailey who was like he was like arrival when by rivals all grown up to talk about a team thing and same teams that ever beran earl watson jilani mccoy same team same team like that's a crazy crazy talented team. He has lost to kentucky had smashed by kentucky. Why does a game after guarantors a._c._l. <hes> they came out impressed arrest us and we turn it over a ton early in that game i mean it was over within ten minutes that was at tropicana field and the baseball team had actually not completed yet and it was torrential downpour. We put like those little wraps around our shoes. Got off the bus because you were stepping in the mud and that should have been an indication nation of how the night was going to go because we step in that mud we played like we were stuck in mud <hes> and they just absolutely destroyed us the other thing about that season people forget about two is gilani ended up only playing a short amount of time that year <hes> and then a suspension went into play and he didn't play the remainder of the season and and so i i i i always go back and i always think to myself like if if gilani mccoy had not been suspended for majority of that season <hes> and then certainly for for almost all of conference play and then into the n._c._a._a. Tournament he was not available for us. If baron doesn't tears a._c._l. What that team could have accomplished <hes> because as you know with him being your teammate chris ca- flat out score with anybody and he loved to shoot the basketball jared henderson still playing professional basketball in japan is twenty third season or whatnot over over in japan <hes> but extremely talented as well and that group to me. That's that's the one thing that i i look back on it u._c._l._a. And you look at not only that team but then you go the following year after that and you've got baron davis scarlatti thin and then you've got <hes> matt barnes jerome elisa's bowie so who the lottery pick for the celtics i mean it was it was a tremendously talented group of players that i was fortunate and then when we lost barron we got jason component for my senior year i so it was it was always silly. As far as talent goes at u._c._l._a. During that stretch of time and look i think personally looking back on it. I think we did underachieve and i think that there there were times when i look at it go man. There's no way we should have lost that game..

"Field to, and with the addition of Jesse James also in free agency. It's clear that the lines did not like they're, they're tight end class from last year. And they're doing everything they can to fix it, which makes sense under this kind of new run focused heavy offense at they're trying to implement. But then they go in the next round and Jilani linebacker out of Hawaii guy that most draft experts of, you know, at least in the media had as, as a day, three pick round five to seven guy, and so that had a lot of people turning their heads, especially since linebacker wasn't that big of. Perceive need the bunch of cornerback still on the on available at their pick that a lot of lines fans thought they should've gone with. So this was really a tough sell for for Bob Quinn, and the lines on their fan base, because it didn't quite address all their needs and not exactly the ones that they wanted another position that kind of went undrafted here was was guard and with lines, losing TJ Lang, this offseason almost everyone expected them to draft a guard in the first two days of the drafts and they ended up not drafting one at all. So, I think people were pretty lukewarm on this draft. I do think it's starting to turn around a little bit based on what we're seeing again. The lines went defense heavy picking defensive player with for the first five picks. So I really am expecting a turnaround on the defense eventually, if not right away this year, but it's, it's still kind of a draft class that we just we have to wait and see what exactly their plan was because it wasn't exactly a. Undrafted. This is this is unbelievable. For giants fans, Jeremy, a fan base that actually questions the decisions made by its general manager unbelievable unheard of well you become conditioned as the lions fan to question everything at this point, I think.

"This episode Jilani. What else would you like to share with the listeners new just parting thoughts about what's been energizing your heart lately? Yeah. I'm I'm particularly inspired by the leaders of color who have stepped up and stepped out into so many public spaces around bringing mindfulness to the communities and they've been doing it in such a way that is so inclusive even within our own community. Right. So people across whatever religious faith, you have whatever practices among the different. Gender and sexuality and ability all of the things that we like to diversify people of color have been coming into the space, and hopefully more and more been receiving a loving and supportive container to be there. And that is what I'm really really excited about for myself, obviously for my immediate community, and extending it out. So knowing that I can reach out and get help or get support in assistance in ways that I haven't been able to do before. And that I can also be of service to those who are wanting to be more included and to experience a mindfulness in the space of communities. I'm really excited about that. And I'm grateful for you for hosting this and bringing all this up to the forefront because it is so important that each of us are doing our work in ways that feel whole and good and safe for us.

So I didn't have a lot of male energy in my home and also. American family. No Jeep doing youthful though, but there's a time. You know something about. Love love everyone, right? But the campaign I would just didn't make me feel good guy that didn't get to see my dad all the time, like a guy that played catch with his son. It was something about when I put his hat off and make you feel like superman you made a superman that was, that's my favorite superhero. And you make a superman Cape for me also as the guy that looks up to you lose up to wrap around lives up to Baruch, industry guys, critical, no bullsh- with the beep on it. Have you wanna do it five, six delay and just goes eight hits done. Try make some sense of what are we saw today, dry Britney. Cooper, author of elephant rage, a black feminist discovers her superpower, Jilani Cobb, staff writer for the New Yorker, and I'll certainly pretty, I actually thought that one minute summation of feeling emasculated and feeling under threat about one's masculinity and finding an projecting Hillary Clinton because of a choosing. Donald Trump was like assessing to articulate. For the motives of millions of voters as you will find. Absolutely. So you know, there's so many things going on here, but you know, he's playing from the patriarchal playbook of Trump and basically he sat in the Oval Office today and said, who's my daddy trumps my daddy and look. He's actually not the first politician in recent years to make this argument that black men since father loss our fatherland drives policy rock. Obama also did this a lot. But what what I think is doing or thinks he's doing is actually setting himself up for presidential run. Using Trump's playbook, he's making a media spectacle of himself. He's trying to play on black moon's emotions and thirteen percent of black men supported Trump. So he's trying to say that we're putting black families back intact by putting fathers back in the center of the story. It's all trash. We should reject all of it, but I felt really triggered in this cavenaugh Cosby moment about our. Inability to think about the function of patriarchy, right? It's it's a clunky word and so we keep on leaving it out of the discussion. But this is about male domination. This is about the ways that they were explicitly bought over. Literally black men have there are many black men who who cannot get onboard with a full black liberation plan or liberation for all people because they want the kind of power that white men have. And so- communist model that first today he said, look, this is what I, what I aspire to is to be Donald Trump and any black person who is being honest, will tell you that it's not just white communities are Republicans haven't Trump problem. We have a Trump problem in black communities too. One of the things that's instructive is that less Atta conversation with historian Timothy Snyder and philosopher Jason Stanley. We're talking about fascism and one of the things that most salient things do found authoritarian regimes across the board was this leader as paternity figure and the fun father father figure of the state? Exactly. And so listening to Conde articulate that was really kind of shocking and frightening in this particular way. And of course, it's not unusual. We know that this is the dynamic that's happening, but it is still nonetheless striking when you hear it so succinctly articulated and Brittany's point of saying that Kanye west wants to run for president. I remember a time when we would laugh at something like that and say was awful, but now we're in such a bizarre twilight zone kind of reality. The cool knows what actually could happen in this country. And also to your point about the sort of fascism or authoritarianism like those are just strikes me to county likes the aesthetics of it, like he's very explicit that like I liked
