Fresh update on "jim crow" discussed on Transition Virginia
"Coalition of blacks and whites in the pre civil rights era So I think the legacy of it in that way although it's perhaps not as remembered as it might be it is one of those counterpoint to this notion that somehow. African Americans and whites couldn't work together politically and so I think it does belive that it does be live that myth it obviously has some real lasting legacy in I think the strength of the public. School. movement in Virginia certainly never goes back direction of some of the readjusted enemies would've would have had it had the readjusting not come on the scene so I think that becomes kind of enshrined in Virginia public life and in electoral politics obviously things like State University funding whether it's Virginia State or the expansion of Virginia. Tech. There's some real lasting thing was there. Even. If some of the other things, the poll tax that they remove gets reinstated I mean there are things that don't go away and I think you know in some ways when we look back on it now it's heartening in a way it kind of gives you some psychic income to realize that. There was a point in history where black and white Virginians came together especially those of of certain economic status and said, enough we're GONNA start our power and there's some real. There's some real value in remembering that and it's something that we really ought to. Remember and talk more about and no more about. Yeah and I think it's it represents the promise and the tragedy of reconstruction and how for as far as reconstruction in those amendments win. and I think it speaks is speaks to a gun. I'm going to go back to John Lewis kind of what he wrote in his op Ed in the New York Times that was published on the day of his of his funeral, his last words if you will, and he talks about democracy being an action. In democracy being continuous movement, you can't give. And I think they they kind of speak to the sense in which the vote is never enshrines it could he he says can always be taken away in what we see as we see a brief moment where they're able to come together able to get things accomplished some of which I agree the education piece is long lasting some of which isn't, but it speaks to the fact that if you don't continue to cultivate a healthy democracy, you will not get a healthy democracy thirty years after the readjusts their forgotten their buried A convention explicitly meant to a race them and the possibility of them from Virginia. and. And then you know you have the legacy after that of Jim Crow in the bird machine and so I think it speaks to the promise, but it also speaks to the tenuousness of of people being able to participate in continue to participate successfully in democracy. Delegate van Valkenburgh. What lessons learned are there for you as a member of the General Assembly that other members could take from this era of history. Not sure that there's a lot of lessons policy wise from what they do I. I, I think. I think the lesson is ultimately, you can't take anything for granted. You have to continue to shape a coalition. You have to continue to shake things relevance to people's lives. You have to continue to argue for why a multi-racial coalition is necessary. You have to continue to Kinda stand against racial division. Some of their tax policy in some of their school policies are things that I think in Virginia. We can take a lesson from to this day properly funding schools. You know reason I originally ran. I would argue we don't do that and I think that the lessons of how they got to that make a whole lot of sense but I do think the bigger lesson is the equality and democracy peace and I think it's important to recognize that There's never an endpoint it's never over you've never achieved your goal because democracy there's always tomorrow. Now. Recently, in the Capitol building in Richmond, The statue of Robert e Lee was removed from the old house. This is instantly the same house chamber that the readjustment once ruled and delegate Valkenberg tweeted about this about this particular statue and he said many of these statues like that statue of rubber used to be in the old house chamber gifts from other Southern States has recently the nineteen fifties then tweeted let's celebrate the readjust instead. What did you mean by that and how do you think the justice should be celebrated? Yeah, look I mean there's a difference between history and memory right? We want to study history warts and all because we need to know where we were to know where we're going. Never GonNa Change. But what we memorialize and what we hold up to be true I think should be shaped by what we think is important now and you have tour groups that go into that old house building for decades. All they see is a shrine to the loss caused you go in and you look to your left in there's a bust of Alexander Stevens, a Georgian who was the president of confederacy that was gifted to us in nineteen fifty two you look to your right you saw busted Jefferson Davis, and this is sippy man who was the president of the confederacy that was gifted to us from Mississippi state legislature in nineteen fifty three. and. I don't think that that rep you know we need to know that history we need to know that that. That the capital was used for the confederacy and we need to know the that we had a convention at asked us to see from the Union and we did. that. We had former presidents in that convention weeping when we seated tears of joy, we need to know that history, but we need to celebrate the moments where we reached our finest moments right where we lived up to our values lived up to our democracy in Virginia I cannot think of a better moment there's others but I can't think of a better one. Than the readjust there's a kind of what they stood for because they weren't perfect. They don't live up to twenty twenty values Mahone a great example of that. I do think they transcended their moment to live up to a constitutional values in a way that has been very rare in Virginia history and I think that's worth teaching fourth graders. Doctor Levin Good. Any final thoughts about the legacy of this group that's now almost completely forgotten. Yeah I really like what scholars just had to say I'm trying to think how you how you might physically memorial is that I don't know that you want to put up a statue of Mahone Other wouldn't take up much space. He was a very small guys get along lifestyle catch. Yes. Just doesn't aside I love the comment his his wife had when she heard during the civil war that he had received a flesh wounded battle and she said something like well now I know it must be very serious because William doesn't have much flesh to begin with which I thought was a great. Great great comet. He's. He's really a small cadaverous dude. Yeah you know I I i. mean. It's it's hard to say how you How you might spread this legacy a little more.
How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?
"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the

The Bonus Army
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit crumb today the mystery of the Bonus Army July twenty eighth nineteen thirty two will mark the eighth anniversary of one of the most controversial protests in US history and yet it remains virtually unknown to most Americans. On, that day nineteen, thirty, two, five, hundred, US army infantrymen loaded rifles, fixed bayonets, gas grenades containing of vomited ingredient two, hundred cavalry, a machine gun squadron eight, hundred police and six M One, nine, thousand, nine, hundred seventeen army tanks prepared to attack seventeen hundred unarmed men plus thousands of their wives and children moments before the Assault General Douglas Smith Garth in charge of the operation turned.

Occupants of the area in Kampman was then burned to the ground. This wasn't Cuba the Philippines or the Mexican border. But in Washington DC The camp nicknamed Hoover Ville occupied by World War One veterans who were living in tents and shanties across the country and they're also in their encampment in DC with crumbling buildings all around them along Pennsylvania Avenue near the capital if your education was anything like mine, there wasn't any mention of this event. In history class four, million vets had returned from the war. This is World War One was the war to end all wars and found that others had taken their jobs that are considerably higher wage than though one dollar per day soldiers pay an expected more help from the government in nineteen twenty four Congress promised World War One veterans a bonus payment. I'll dollar twenty five for each day of overseas service and a dollar for every day of.

Together, during world, War One, the military was still segregated as was Anacostia Park when the marchers arrived the vets who had fought a war together deliberately decided to live side by side and set up in the black section of the park.

Obama makes the case for Biden — and democracy – in passionate DNC address
"Of American democracy. In John Lewis. In some years ago, I sat down with John in a few remaining leaders of the early civil rights movement. One of them told me he never imagined he'd walk into the White House. And see if President Who looked like his grandson. And then he told me that he had looked it up. And it turned out that on the very day that I was born He was marching into a jail cell. Trying to end Jim Crow segregation in the sack. What we do. Echoes through generations. Whatever our backgrounds, we are all the Children of Americans who fought the good fight. Great grand parents working and fire traps and sweatshops without rights or representation. Farmers losing their dreams to dust. Irish and Italians and Asians and Latinos told Go back where you come from? Jews and Catholics, Muslims and Sikhs made to feel suspect for the way they worshipped. Black Americans chained and whipped. And hanged. Spit on For trying to sit at lunch counters. Beaten. For trying to vote. If anyone Got a right to believe that this democracy did not work. And could not work. It was those Americans our ancestors. They were on the receiving end of a democracy that had fallen short all their lives. They knew. How far the daily reality of America strayed from the mid And yet, instead of giving up They joined together. They said somehow, some way we are going to make this work. We are going to bring those words. In our founding documents to life. I have seen that same spirit rising these past few years. Folks of every age and background who packed city centres and airports and rural roads so that families wouldn't be separated. So that another classroom wouldn't get shot up. So that our kids won't grow up on an uninhabitable planet. Americans of all races, joining together to declare In the face of injustice. And brutality. The hands of the state. That black lives matter. No more, but no less. So that no child in this country feels the continuing sting of racism. To the young people who lead us this summer telling us we need to be better. In so many ways you are this country's dreams fulfilled. Earlier generations had to be persuaded that everyone Has equal worth for you. It's a given. A conviction. And what I want you to know. Is that for all its messiness? And frustrations. Your system of self government. Can be harnessed to help you realize those convictions. For all of us. You can give our democracy new meaning? If you can take it to a better place. You're the missing ingredient. The ones who will decide whether or not America becomes the country that fully lives up to its creep. That work will continue long after this election. But any chance of success depends entirely. On the outcome of this election. This administration has shown it will tear our democracy down if that's what it takes for them to wait. So we have to get busy building it up. By pouring all our efforts into these 76 days. And by voting like never before. For Joe and Kama. And candidates up and down the ticket. So that we leave no doubt. About what this country That we love stands for Today. And for all our days to come Stay safe. God bless

Addressing Health Disparities in Puerto Rico
"Of the continental US, the covert 19 pandemic is happening as the push for social justice continues. Natasha Alford is a journalist for the Gri Oh, and Pulitzer Center grantee. And she traveled to Puerto Rico shortly after the island's political protests in 2019 to understand another uprising taking place on the land What she calls the Afro Latino revolution. She joins us now. Welcome to hearing now. Thank you so much for having me, Tanya. Yes. And Natasha. What? Through lines? Are you saying between the Afro Puerto Rican community and what's happening in other parts of the country in the protests for racial justice? How does PR's history and culture Play out in the construction of race and racial experiences. Yes. Oh, there's so much to unpack there. But you know, the first thing I'll say is after the death of George Floyd, we immediately saw protest. We saw vigils and we saw memorials in honor of his life right in Puerto Rico, So obviously there was something that really resonated with people there. And specifically in Afro Puerto Rican communities. Now often times when people think of Afro Puerto Rican Sze, they may associate them with just one community. One town one neighborhood. I'll give you an example. Louisa has a really high proportion of residents who identify as Afro Puerto Rican. But the reality is that there are black people everywhere in Puerto Rico. It's just his divers as the United States. And so we saw that what was happening in the continental US was really resonating. It's resonating because there are similarities. What have you found in terms of health disparities without for Latinos and other types of disparities? Do they mirror what we see in the continental United States? Yes, I think that there are parallels, and it makes sense, right? Because well, you think about the history of Puerto Rico. There was slavery there as well. Right? Even though our societies may be different, you know, we think of the continental US we think of segregation and Jim Crow. Ah, lot of people just don't know the history of Puerto Rico and and slavery and the aftermath of how it played out. They often assume that Puerto Rico is a Nyland of racial harmony that it is a racial utopia. The phrase La Grande Familia, Kenya. Is about being one Puerto Rican family. But a lot of people will tell you that that's actually not the case. And so with health disparities, one thing that researchers have found is that darker skinned Puerto Rican Sze report poorer health outcomes. And some of the reasons for that are social treatment. The communities in which they live in are sometimes poorer exposure to social stressors. There's ah great research paper that was written that came out of the University of Puerto Rico by Jose Caravaggio, Quito and S. R Boudreau and they talked about Changing the way that we measure those disparities by changing the language we use. So we often think of black and white in the United States, but they did a study where they asked people to list the shade of their skin tone. When they did that they actually got more information that showed what those health disparities were, and the key was using local language and understanding of race rather than trying to impose the continental US is language when it comes to race. Of course,
Isabel Wilkerson Talks About 'Caste'
"Isabel Wilkerson joins us. Now she is a Pulitzer Prize winner and the author of the warmth of other suns which she came on the podcast to talk about a little bit when she reviewed Michelle Obama's becoming. She is back now to talk about her new book cast the origins of our discontent Isabel. Thanks so much for being here. Thanks for having me. So as I alluded in my intro, the last time you came on this podcast, you did come extensively to talk about one book in particular, which was Michelle Obama's becoming which I used as an excuse to talk about book of Your Own the other sons, and I don't have to have that excuse to talk about a book of your this time because you have a new book, let's talk about how you got from the warmth of other suns to this new book cast because you wrote in your book something sort. Sort of intriguing, which is that you didn't seek to write this book, but you felt like you had to write it and I'm curious what you meant by that. Well, with the warmth of other suns, had spent fifteen years looking into trying to understand the great migration and and why that happened, and so that meant that I spent a lot of time looking at and having to investigate and understand wife as it was during that era from the end of reconstruction until the nineteen seventies essentially and what I discovered was that the word. Racism, which is the word that often is applied to descriptions of the warmth. Sons did not actually apply. It was not sufficient. It was not the precise or comprehensive word to describe the structure of repression that was in place from the end of reconstruction. Until till essentially the civil rights legislation of the nineteen sixties, and so I found that I was using the word cast. Cast was the word that anthropologists until geologists and others of the era who had gone into the South during the time of the depth of Jim Crow. They had emerged from that era and that region and that time using the term cast in. It intrigued me when I came across it in the research for the one of the sons and decided that that was really the only way to describe it, and so the word racism does. Does, not, appear in the warmth of other suns and in the intervening years especially with events such as Charlottesville, I have been in a forced to have to think about the language and think about how we remember our history, and so it's as a result of that that I felt I sort of felt, I had no choice, but to dig deeper into what I had begun with the warmth of other signs and it led to this. So in those intervening years. Did you start to think about another book, but you kept coming back to this idea of cast and sort of switched gears or was this the project you went into immediately as a natural outgrowth of the warmth of other suns was the former. You're exactly right I actually had other things that I was working on and was very excited about and very deeply wanting to get into and this this phenomenon helped rearing itself in the news kept prodding me and poking me to look further at what I had already begun. Would not let me go essentially. And an I, at every turn, I was seeing things that were manifestations of what I had written about. But no one was using the language. We we actually need new language to better understand the era in which we live. The old language may not be as efficient as it might have been. Say You know during the Early Twentieth Century? Such words, it's racism, which is a very fraught word means many different things to many different people and is often conflated with personal animus hostility, hate What we're dealing with now goes beyond that because actually it's the underlying infrastructure that we've all inherited that, and that has been here all along since the since the founding of the country actually since before the founding of the country and so this, the the recent events kept drawing me back to what I was not wanting to do, I was not wanting to write this. I really hasn't. And yet, it kept pulling at me

"jim crow" Discussed on Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness
"To getting curious. This is Jonathan Ben S. We are back with Deborah Archer. So basically you're just saying that In implementation of the desegregation schools that was ruled in nineteen fifty four. But we're still against fighting to implement all of the tenants of that. So what were the tenants of that? And that's actually a lot of what you've written about it like in your work. So how are we still seeing like the ramifications of this now so Eve Brown with the separate but equal. I think has a thread in it that reaches back to to Jim Crow to connect to what you were talking earlier and that thread is that Jim Crow in many ways was about defining and protecting white space in white privilege and in Brown. It was a challenge to an attempt to define white schools white space white privilege and bronze said. You can't do that in public. Education separate is never equal and Brown soon spread to other areas where we saw challenges to separate bussing and separate pools and started to Brown's the first step in dismantling our segregation regime. But what continues today? Is this notion There are white spaces and that law should protect white space is and the the what people view as their privilege to control those spaces so we see that still in in in public education here in New York City one of those segregated school systems in the country and at the same time one of the most integrated cities in the country. We have intense segregation in our public schools. You see that protecting white space. I think in The Language and conversation around immigration the fear that In a few years America will be majority people of Color and I think a lot of what we see as a reaction to To that in an attempt to protect America's a white space I see that in the challenges to -firmative action programs at places like Harvard and the University of North Carolina that that is an attempt to protect white spaces that are growing increasingly diverse. So I think that's a thread that follows from Jim Crow through Today and another thread that I see through all of that is the myth of excessive black criminality that after emancipation we started to spin this narrative. That black people were so dangerous. They couldn't control themselves so we had to protect white women. We had to protect White Children. And that was the justification for segregation. Keep them in their own spaces and out of our spaces. Don't you think that was also like or isn't that also like inciting fear isn't that also just means to control like how governments like do that? I mean I'm not justifying. It's like super fucked up but did you. This may be an incorrect assumption. But did you see the thirteenth? I did those fucking films of them of of how they will portray black people in those films. It was also it's like I was. Did you see I just watched? Harriet like literally last night in the plane on the way home and I was really so I started reading more about the fugitive slave. Act just reading more about it. And it was really like Wisconsin New Hampshire Vermont and I believe Pennsylvania where like four states where like that act was bad was basically unenforceable because like the state legislatures and the governor is like weren't having it and they went to make state laws basically nullified it but I was thinking about like New York Maine Illinois in like other states that were states at the time that were in the north. That like didn't make the list of like you know being more complicit in the things that were going on in the south and I have another question like another thing that I'm just trying to get in my head straight because if it took till nine hundred sixty four to get to places of like you know. Education was nineteen fifty four but then like you know public spaces and transportation But what about voting his? There's also such a like really fucked up marginalized way that like you know I wasn't it like black men were allowed to vote. Didn't like no women voted until like nineteen to it's the one hundred ten adversity were celebrating the nineteenth amendment. So it's like one hundred years. It's only black. Women specifically in America have been like even more further marginalize in every way in voting in employment and education Black women have been more marginalized than than other groups. And you said so much I think is so incredibly important. I WANNA pause to just acknowledge the power that films like the thirteenth and Harriet and Selma have had because they are providing this education to a much broader audience. So that people can question what they see. People can Get engaged and involved And I think that's incredibly important. And then you mentioned The narrative of black criminality as a as a means to control and and incite fear. And it absolutely was your one hundred percent right and it was a way that white folks were able to justify this this system of segregation white supremacy to make people afraid to be with black people And then to invoke the criminal justice system as a means of control. And we see that today Look at the school to prison pipeline. We're we're thinking of children as young as as prekindergarten and kindergarten as violent and treating them as criminals and calling in the police to address childhood or adolescent behavior which is going on very much. I mean we sat with somebody who is at least once a quarter. But I'm sure it happens more often. Yes all the time and we see the videos and it certainly is a fragment and it's helping people acknowledge that it's happened but for every video you see. There are one hundred incidents that we that we don't see And so we really need to understand what A tragedy this is talked about voting rights and voting rights was as I said something that Black folks exercised following the adoption of the thirteenth fourteenth and fifteenth amendments and then that was eroded during Jim Crow Nineteen Sixty five. We had the voting rights act and it was brilliant in the way that it was crafted because it was understood that that discrimination of all's and that white supremacy was going to adapt to black resistance and so the voting rights act of nineteen sixty five had measures. That caught the new. The new twist on on discrimination and so it. I knew it might be poll taxes And then it might be literally literacy tests and then it was changing poll sites and now it's voter. Id Law the problem is. Is that the Supreme Court gutted? The Voting Rights Act a few years ago in a case call shelby county versus holder. Were the eliminated section five which was the pre-clearance requirement. So if Georgia wanted to make changes to voting they had to go to the Department of Justice and say we WANNA make this change and then prove that. It wasn't going to discriminate against people of Color. That's gone now and so right docket overturned. I cannot remember the the year it Maybe we can google it on our phone. But it was relatively recently John Roberts Was On the court and a roof that opinion gutting the the voting rights act immediately after Louis the day after the decision Texas adopted and implemented. It's voter ID law which had been struck down previously By that provision in the Voting Rights Act and then we saw proliferation of Voter purges voter. Id Laws. We saw North Carolina limitation of early voting And the core court. In North Carolina said that North Carolina Law targeted black people with surgical precision for example it eliminated diddly eliminate all early voting days but it eliminated the Sunday before Election Day and black people in the south often. Call that souls to the polls were after church everyone has a congregation will go and vote and they eliminated that day but not other days and so we see without the protection of the voting right. The full protection of the Voting Rights Act That black folks people of Color. Poor people and Surprisingly women or not surprisingly women are losing their their right to vote so I was just thinking a few things so one thing that you said earlier that I thought was new. York City has the most take some of the most schools in the country. That's something you don't think about why I think a lot of people are asking how or why because some people would say that it's because of residential segregation and that we are residential segregated here New York City but that is not the full story because in high school for example in New York City. You can go to any high school in the city. If you live in Brooklyn you can go to Bronx Science The problem is that we have implemented a series of tests and screens for high schools. That are not about ability. They're not about intelligence. They're not about the capacity for children to excel in high school. It is about access to money access to resources and access information which unfortunately in New York City is divided along racial lines So we have a test for some high schools. That don't rely don't actually test what you've learned in middle school and instead people are having to go to test prep programs for a year before they apply to high school and the test. Prep programs cost thousands of dollars. Npr automatically right. So you're not going to be able to pass that test and not be able to get to those schools And also I just an incredible series of screens that New York City has implemented that keep children of color out of some of the the the most elite public schools and how is is is not is it. Because Betsy Devos is like the head of education's like no one's accessing these things out. I mean who is supposed to oversee these things well? The city has a lot of control over those things there are some of it is a state controlled. In New York they have mandated a test for the specialized high schools But some of it is new. York City and New York City has has allowed Us to develop their own admissions criteria that exclude people of Color and poor people so for example there are middle schools in New York City. That are are are public schools but you have to take a special entry entrance exam or you have to have a portfolio or you have to show up for a test at four o'clock on Friday and there are certain kids whose parents can't get them to the test at four o'clock on Friday Or you have to go for various tours and During the week on a school day and people who have jobs that don't allow that flexibility? Can't get out of work to take their child to this tour. None of that should be required under that. Speaks to whether or not A child can perform as the ability has the intelligence and we also do gifted and talented tests for For kindergarten kids at four and five were testing Children in deciding whether or not they're gifted and based on that they're funneled into different educational programs So certainly the federal government could a stronger oversight role but New York City. There are things that could be done today to increase integration in public schools That aren't being done. Yeah I mean 'cause it be it. There are so many financial implications that just make that racist and classes in. It's so preventative. Like for just like for people. Okay I have another question okay. Affirmative action yes. I was born in Nineteen eighty-seven I think that that affirmative action is that I think I know what it is and I you know obviously like heard people talking about it. A lot is like a child. I've heard about it in my life but like I know that there's a concerted effort for people to say like this is no longer needed But I think that's kind of been the case for the whole time of affirmative action. There's always think of course people that are like no. We don't need this. That's not whatever I also think that in light of the whole admission scandal of like you know seeing all these elitist people using their influence and power to gain access to schools. That almost speaks to like why affirmative action is even more needed. Because you can use rich. People can manipulate the system. It was a blessing in disguise to show that there is no such thing as merit because we like to say that our systems are based on merit. And the the best people get in. And if you don't get in it's because you weren't always to trump wants to do this merit system which is actually the money system yes And so it's not married if you can buy your way into a school..

"Of slavery, Jim crow. Segregation today. Affirmative action programs have been converted into preference programs for immigrants though, most categories of immigrants are white and have never been negatively impacted by the racism and racial conditions that caused these programs to be necessary. This era can be traced to the immigration reform control act of nineteen eighty six which effectively required employees employers to treat immigrants exactly like native born citizens. Says nearly ninety percent of all immigrants are classified as white on their immigration records and driver's licenses. Why aren't immigrants treated like white and excluded from affirmative action programs? Why are they categorize would blacks only in the instance of affirmative action? Putting apples and oranges. In the same categories sets up a situation where immigrants of any race displaced blacks from the very programs designed to help them it is not possible to justify including Hispanics, Arabs, Asians, and other immigrants and women who are a majority in affirmative action programs yet.

"Hi men, and he did this tweet storm and then appeared on the on the media podcast talking about how back during the Jim crow era in the south black people were really shut out of. Being consumers they had. They were in these very rural towns. And the only thing around was like the local town store and you would go that town store doesn't sound right. But anyway, you go to the shop the general store, right? And you know, some white guys behind the counter and the black person has to wait till all the white people are served before they get to buy anything, and you can't just pick stuff up and bring it to the counter. You have to interact with this white person behind the counter who may or may not decide you're worthy of being sold certain products like you're literally shut out of being a consumer in the Jim crow, south, and then the Sears catalog comes along and it goes to everyone goes to these people who are shut out of being consumers being like full members of society, and they get to buy whatever they want from the catalogs. And it was actually this like very political thing in this very democratizing thing. And it made me kind of think, like, I know I kind of Poupon capitalism a lot in here, but like it can be really wonderful that sometimes you know, if you're black is easier to get. Good news. Exactly and like an Amazon too. You know, there's a lot of downsides in lots of things to be cynical about about Amazon, but it has a similar kind of affect in a lot of a lot of rural areas where you lack access to goods like it opens up worlds for people. Sometimes I thought that was really cool. I would just say that going back a little bit to the example though talking about, I mean, I agree that a long time ago, Sears served a really relevant purpose and they were very, very important company, and I don't mean to diminish the what it's going to do to the people who are going to lose their jobs. But this is what happens as economies change as new industries come in. And yes, we can have a larger argument outside about why we should have a stronger safety nets. I try to protect people when these things happen, but my point is that what was happening with Sears was a really great innovation at the time. Now times have changed. Same thing. What happened with Uber is been a great innovation at the time, and so things change. So I don't think that when people are talking about like. Oh, as though somehow like Sears should be saved because it has this long history. That's why push back. Yeah. Well, I wasn't saying saying you were saying that anyway, just I was thinking a lot about that because a lot of people wrote about Sears as if it was another like retail is dying story.

The dramatic showdown in Little Rock and the consequences that daisy Elsie Bates faced as a result of their participation were examples of a much broader movement throughout the south, a determined and ferociously organized effort to prevent school desegregation was underway not only did it intend to stop integration from happening, but it sought to exact a heavy price from those activists, black and white who supported segregation is fought with renewed energy to defend Jim crow, under the banner of what came to be known as massive resistance. The south already had a long history of successfully repressing civil rights, advocacy, massive resistance in the nineteen fifties built upon these traditions and tactics through variety of forms in combination, they would prove tremendously successful at slowing or stopping the process of integration through the rest of the decade.

It's fundamental goal was to coordinate widespread resistance to desegregation from its Mississippi sea-bed the citizens council spread rapidly throughout the south. It fed on bitter reactions of white communities to local civil rights activism appealing to their sense that the Jim crow way of life was under attack by the start of nineteen fifty six with among Gumri busboy con garnering headlines from Alabama.
