In Black America: Spencer Haywood
"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses. And thank you me because you know in that situation just in terms of dollars from Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet. Dr Wayne die of your your own zone by Diet. Right Do all of my academics bring me up to snuff there. Oh my God it was just A. It's just a lot of love was having an and I see in Detroit and it's always been that way you know. They've always reached out and help each

"Think that drip is probably not going to do well. I think that it is hit. It's sort of hit his expiration date Yellow Bill Vance brand new Jacob. What's the West? Has Kansas. Say What you want and anger in the hand I would still. I'm still very pleased with the final. I think that one what I'm most concerned about like if that were to win like if like lightning struck something in Lithuania everybody eight from the seafood. Buffet except for me Ian Die. I worried that to be at Eurovision. The number of tweaks that would have made because there are a lot of recorded vocal effects and Like some of the language in the song it's going to end up getting tweaked in ways that are going to remove a lot of its charm and and I don't want that to happen but yeah for me I think it's alligator Malik's make me human That was gorgeous performance in semi green I wouldn't mind. We came from the Sun. Either they felt like Like I hadn't really paid attention to that until the semi final last week and lift his blown away by how much relief and her team had thought through the staging of that and it's Such a modern track to which I think. That's the thing that's like just so amazing about this like so. Many of these tracks are so today. Which is why? Why like unbreakable just feels like such disappointing choice? If it means a and I think it's going to get weird with the jury because you've got Monaco Maria and they're going up against ice day Who want her heat and semi final and also Monica and I could see that causing a jury split but how does the group fit in with that math? It's GONNA get weird. I'm wondering if in the heat that had both the Rupe and each we stay They were they they should have been tied and like. I would've leaned towards what the vote with Tele had said over the judges so I don't know if if what how Lithuania is is settling those ties at the happens again. I hope that they go with people and I hope they go through. Yep Yep that's my hope is well also so if somebody can can get like a VHS copy of drip into Andy's Sandberg's hands so that you're from now when he hosts SNL there's a digital short. That's just for me. Yes it gets the reference and I get to scream like that's just just keep tweeting. The video of it to the cast of Brooklyn nine nine. Andy he likes to watch the video yet. Start with Andre Brower and work your way up from there. Then why are you blocked by everybody from Brooklyn Nine Nine on funds story. Yeah let's also talk about Mel. Because Mel has happened last week. I ended up liking this heat much more than I expected to. Because we had I had came. Come into this one. Having talked with you and being kind of similar we burnt out on August. Because it's the same people. It's they're doing dogs but there were. There was a lot to like in this one daughter who sang bulletproof and berg-en-dal who's thinking come are through to the final which is super cool. I believe that is the first first time that two female acts have gone directly to the final in some time apparently with us in two thousand nine since two thousand nine. Oh Dang as long as Sweden has gotten my letter where I have said please do not just send a man man. They appear to be listening because the boys being sent a second chance. It's this week The boys the second chance Paul Ray who I liked talking my sleep so I'm happy that he gets to do that again. And then Mendez Navarro. Australia's Vamos goes which was fine. It was my second choice but is going to second choice. I want to take a quick moment. Talk About Linda Bank thing because I thought that Linda Bank seeing was going to do something similar to what John Johansen did which is a a song in Swedish. That is mostly just there so that the male fest lineup has has has quote unquote diversity. Right usually the the older side of that diversity Get stuck with like kind of mid tempo ballad he things things that are in Swedish and don't go anywhere because Mel Fest prioritizes young singers swing singing English. Her Song is a lot of fun and it was like the the moment why expected to to a ballot pivoted to like an UPTEMPO thing was super fun and she just had fun mom energy. She was living her life. I I am so jealous of her ABS. Yes her costume I. It just felt like very Zubaydah but it's like oh she's making this work like I. I was is totally on board with that performance in preparation for this I ask you. He's like okay. What do I which I was the one thing I need to watch because I was kind of surprised I was a little out on your tired and watching what I need to focus on for Sweden like? You need to watch Linda. Linda performance was awesome. I thought the lighting effect for D- Daughters there's bulletproof was interesting. Yes I'm curious to see how that technology's going to progress in the next couple of years. I think it was good for a I go through on this performance I it was just a little I know it. It still feels like it's a prototype phase but I was just like did they have to make the people sitting in the front row like signed a waiver before. Hi can you sign this waiver. Because there's GonNa be lasers yeah do not look at the stage daughter with essentially wearing a disco ball but in but in a way that's like an attractive top. Yeah it was very and they doing thing that you can do with the disco ball which is when you point two laser refracted like crazy emitted a bunch of that. Yeah but then there was also like the cool like single laser beam Coming down from the ceiling. Yeah that was really cool but Anna Bergen dolls performance. Oh my goodness that one was a with a real good surprise. Oh man it feels like a sort of not cluttered version of her song from last year but also bringing in the vibe. That Lake Victoria was trying to sell the last couple of years that she did mel fast. I mom and also kind of borrowing from the Netherlands playbook with like the country vibe to the saw like this was a very well L. deployed and tree. Yeah like here for it. That one is up there with the bookies. What's really pleasing is so last week I talked about being very delighted? Did that Felix Salmon had dropped at had dropped number two at the bookies. He's now dropped to number nine in the top. Four right now are ladies so Sweden send a woman and challenge the Anna Burgo. WHO's currently number one with the bookies? I would not mind at all. That for Horowitz was absolutely fantastic. But then like this week Marietta's there and my it's amazing. Show Dame Edna who collaborated with somebody last year and I really enjoyed that. That was my playlist all year. The home he's also there in his. His song was fine last year so his song. This year will probably also be fine. I I think maybe figured some stuff I don't know I might get back on board which is again not something that I would have expected expected from this eurovision season? Again like that was that was exciting Iceland started processes. Because well. How'd that go? I enjoyed it but I also like like my thermometer of what they were going to send his the more I think about it the more what they picked make sense to me. I just think about what they sent last year So what went through This week were Dima and Helga and I'd sat and watching her program. I really liked Katie's Ach kid. Isaac's performance uh-huh Elisabet also had a release wrong performance had like some Gospel things going on in the chorus Brean Murray had like a really strong pop song. All three of those didn't get picked Dima is doing kind of a hard rock thing but it's like it's like a particular strain of hard rock don't think does well at Eurovision Gerald reminded me of Slovakia's last entry. They were very kind of lake eighties. Hard rock sort of a deal and then he's old and Helga had a really really nice duet. That had a little bit more like a folk thing going on. Okay and the more I think about it. The more like it makes sense that the less pop things went through because I feel discovered last year. That you don't just send like a bland you're visiting pop song right. Nothing felt bland here All the stuff that was very distinctly pop kinda got set aside right interesting and like I could see any of the three. That didn't go through this week. Getting picked up as a wildcard. I think they all had very strong entries like I. I was convinced that it was going to be the kid. Isaac and then any of Elisabet bring you. Mary and Easily Helga. Cause DNA was the only one was like this is fine but like all the first four entries of the night felt like they could build on what they had what they had died and kind of figure out a stronger staging deem felt like. This is what you're going to get. It's fine okay Dima would not be my pick. I kind of hope that they'll go through. I get why they because they're hard rock in Tari had kind of a hard rock thing but it's not the same hard rock thing it also was watching the ads which is always fun and was like is this. Is this in a cheerios commercial. It is Brianna cheerios commercial. Well She was one of the acts. I saw Iceland airwaves so it was fun seeing her in a thing. Oh that's fun. Yeah Oh also. She has a new song as of last Friday that it is like the one song that I really liked from her set and could not find online. So that's there now. Excellent yeah We should add that to this week's playlist so we do and then starting offs Saturday while technically Australia started off Saturday but I was getting. I was not a week at eight thirty in the morning. No so yeah but Ukraine Started at eleven. Am Chicago time and they had eight x compete in their first semi-final for Vibur. They were competing for three slots for whatever reason in these eight acts took three and a half hours to get through why I chose wrong for all of my your vision watching on Saturday it but the three songs that got through were Vegan ninety nine and Sallet and I'm totally on board with VN. I think that song is delightful. Very delightful music video. Ninety nine was a really amazing performance with the harp on stage which owned Auto Hartley was when the league held in her lap so that that was really cool to watch and a very pretty song as well sallet they not my favorite entry..

The viruses, Tom was visible on the side of the pitch. Now, if you look at the picture, it's literally like, remember, one of those old arcade games with the holds over it, it looks like a battered, one of those, that's being on plugged, and had not been told at, but the players, this is the worst thing about the players had not been told. It was not in use because of a mouth luncheon. Why don't you just say at the start of the game guys? Here's the situation vire is not working. We will not be using it tonight. Are you agreeing to play if you're not we have to figure another date if you are? Let's just play without us that feels a little amateurish to me, tirelessly terribly amateur, but I'm saying even your suggestion. But what else could they do? You can't not tell the players. That's exactly what they did that every right to walk off, if you expect to be used, and that's what you've played under in the first leg, and it's not there what a joke. I just have the vision of Cope's and medals being returned. How do you even do that? You do you kind of reverse moonwalk up the podium, take it off and give it back. Did you lifted in the air and then put it down? No. You're not enjoying any of this stick. No. I'm still kind of watching the coverage of the first you ignore Judy Smith. And no. You didn't ignore JD Smith. We're gonna have a pint. All right. Caught off sides man of the match. Let's see JJ with Lennart John Johansen. It's fitting to me that in this time, we're debates are being held about this Superleague replace on the champions. We take time to time to honor the man who essentially created the Champions League. I'm reading here from the guardian Lennart Johansson, who oversaw the introduction of the Champions League during a seventeen year reign as president of European football's governing body has died. He was eighty nine new Hansen said, creating the Champions League to replace the European Cup was his proudest achievement at UEFA it evolved, in the club football's most lucrative and prestigious competition with expansion that saw non domestic champions, given the entry in addition to that J, he also ran for fief. Evident against everybody's favourite president, Sepp Blatter in one thousand nine hundred eight but narrowly lost. And then became a loud voice against bladder, accusing him of corruption and vote buying two things that we can get on board with the father of the Champions League JJ, Leonard, you'll Hanson dead at the age of eighty nine one to pay respect to him for creating what is such? I mean after the World Cup. Is it like the most prestigious competition in the world I, I guess Copa America fans take with that they would is to we considered europhiles considered as the biggest competition in the world? But I mean he he revamped it into what it is. Now in one thousand nine hundred ninety three we had the group stages on it was it was what we know what today pretty much. Exactly. Yeah. And it used to be knockout. Magin strint nocco, while, but yeah, so I wanted to get that mentioned in there, by the way, speaking of the Super League, I saw now the boondocks league and the Premier League kind of uniting is in a force again. It. So it's almost a point on I know, Lita I think, is against it as well. It's really Italy. That is carrying the mantle mashes ter- city PS, g you're going to don't let them off the hook do not off. But if the Premier League and the boondocks league are both against it then just like say, okay, go ahead with your Super League and see how it does with our teams. Yeah. Who's going to take it? Seriously, the Champions League. I'm it's so good. It's par fish so good..

"After that, that was unbelievable. That was awesome. And that is really what it's all about why we're here today. We're coming down to the, the homestretch that conclusion, but I get chance to finish up this morning. And I know many of you came here, and you were going to hear about the patriots and the Rams and you were going to make some people, some of the greatest athletes players coaches in National Football League history, and we've had a chance to do that. But I think we saw something here that kind of tied in with the whole thing of the day, Frank. Right. Talked about. Being behind having your back against the wall being tough unbelievable situations. So you gene Robinson a leader, captain a man selected by his peers as the outstanding man of the year, and then he gets arrested that night a mistake back against the wall, but his coach came in and said, you know what as disappointed as am in you. I forgive you, because I've made mistakes, and I need to pray for myself, and I need that forgiveness and I'm willing to forgive you. And that's the example. That's what Jesus Christ has done for all of us. He came. And he said, you know what I know you've made mistakes but I love you anyway. And I'm willing to lay down my life for you, and all you have to do to take advantage of that and come from thirty five points behind or come from an embarrassing. Situation and come back and say you know what I'm going to be fine because I have people who believe in me. I have the Lord on my side, and even though I made a mistake. It's not the end of the world. Many of you in this room know what that feels like you've experienced that you've experienced the love of Christ, and forgiveness of all of our sends some of you haven't, and that is the reason why I puts on this breakfast. That's the reason why everybody you saw on this stage today was here because they want you to understand what that's all about, and it's very easy to get. It's very easy to get all you have to do is say, you know what Lord, I'm a center, I've made some mistakes, but I want to be right. I want the forgiveness that you Jane Robinson talked about. I want to be able to look back twenty years from now and say, I'm forgiving and then you can do it very simply we're going to close with the very simple prayer for anyone who wants to do it. Just asking God to come in their heart, forgive their sins and lead them to eternal life, and the bible promises that any man anywhere any woman anywhere. Who does that will be accepted into God's kingdom and God's family, Tony Dungy Super Bowl champion coach? He was speaking with Dan Reese, former head coach within Lanta falcons, and two towns. Super Bowl champion with the Dallas Cowboys and his first season as a starter patching home, led the Kansas City Chiefs to an AFC west Chidol and the number one seed in the AFC playoffs. He was named the lease most valuable player and the AFC offensive player of the year Mahomes made headlines out the season for ability to make job dropping plays home became only the second quarterback in league history to have fifty touchdown passes and five thousand ninety seven passing yards during the regular season. Clark hunt chairman and CEO the chief. Talk about the amazing quarterback Clark. I had the privilege like Akbar, set a plan for you guys for a couple of years. And I know that when I was there we were pretty decent team. But not like he said, you guys were so, so close this year. And I know if I missed a kick, and he made kick is a good kick. But if I missed a kick, those were the most painful and so like being so close. What did that feel like you would have hoisted the trophy that's named after your dad? Yeah. Getting to host AFC championship game era. Head was definitely a special moment for our family in our organization, and unfortunately, we did come up just a little bit short which a lot of ways makes it a whole lot tougher to be here this weekend. Because I had a chance to do a lot of interviews and talks, a lot of people. And everybody wants to talk about just how close we were. But truthfully, I feel just blessed by the season that we had, we've got an incredible coaching staff bunch of great players including our quarterback. You mentioned and I've got to think that in the future, we're going to have a chance to get back here and that'll be the goal starting after the super bowl's over and we get into the two thousand nineteen season on Monday. Speaking of that quarterback Patrick Mahomes gunslinger play maker. Unbelievable talent. So much goes into valuating talent you get a guy like that, and you're like we hit the jackpot. Tell us about what it was like watching him. Yeah. Well, we knew last year when he was the backup Tallec Smith that he was going to be special. He was generally running scout team. And so he wasn't getting execute a whole lot of the offense. But periodically our head coach or general manager, which Simi a clip of something he did in practice. And one of the first things was the no look pass. And I was like, white, man. I've never heard of a quarterback doing. No look. Pass man. I know. In basketball you do that. And, and he just while everybody. And so, when we made the decision to go with them as the star this year, we thought he would do a lot of exciting things what we didn't know was what a great leader he would become. So in addition to his incredible play on the field. He is an outstanding young man and today each Twenty-three his teammates really rallied around him. That's a tough thing for young player in the National Football League to become the leader in the locker room. But he just really has the character for that, and we feel very fortunate to have a MS are quarterback. And as I said, hopefully, he can get us to Super Bowl in the near future. Yeah. Like the third guy to have fifty touchdown passes on a few of them were pretty creative. Yeah, it was almost every week, he would do something new that I least had never seen a quarterback do before you think. Okay. We've seen it all at this point. But you know he would throw a ball. To the side or under the pass rushers arms. It was just, you know, it was incredible to watch him. Play Satistics for him to have fifty touchdowns over five thousand yards passing was tremendous. He obviously has a very bright future ahead of you talk a little bit about the culture you have created over the years as ownership. Now, when Susan I played their and our children, there, we felt like grafted into your family. It's like you've created this family values culture that just perpetuates across the entire organization. Well, I had a very good example, to fall in my father when he brought the chiefs to Kansas City in nineteen sixty three he instilled a set of values, which we try to honored today, and we are mission statement, which is in large letters on the wall. When you walk into our trained facility says honored tradition in Spar, our fans unite our community and win with character, and that's a mess. Message that we communicate to everyone in the organization, I speak to the rookies when they come in, and I make sure they understand that's who the Kansas City Chiefs are. And then at the beginning of every season at training camp, I have a chance to reinforce that and we want our guys out giving back in the community. We're so blessed in the National Football League to have this amazing platform, and have a chance to really make a difference in our community. Clark hunt chairman and CEO of the Kansas City Chiefs.

"Going with me, you know, because she felt the same. Idea about things. So anyway, I worked real hard with those democratic fellows fight fellows, you know, trying to raise the percentage of blacks and and all that. And when it came time for, I could possibly think about really take about law school. I was discussing it, you know what these fouls. And I didn't really know where I wanted to go, but it wasn't to the university of Texas because I had heard how discriminatory the school was, but I even wrote to Texas southern and they never even Roger back. And so finally they will talk. We will talk in one day, and I said, I think I wanna go to law school and they said, well, the only law school you should go to is the university of Texas. They said that is school ago to, especially if you wanna come. Back up here long Bill to do anything. Achieve anything. You need a degree from the university of Texas. So that's the way I applied and I don't even know what my test score was. I just know I was. And I went, I came down here to talk to the dean academic dean to tell him that I couldn't come that spring semester. Could I come at some and he said, yes, you know, you could do that. And sometimes when I'm talking to Bill, I just don't know why was accepted university of Texas since I don't remember what my score was. I do know that I made all as it Atlanta university in political science, but I messed up as a college student, but then I thought about the fact that I took two cars spun and courses in education from the university of Texas that was under Kilgore college in that area. And I made as in both of those courses. So I said, well, maybe they just think that if I could make as goes. That I'll do all right in in law school, but to my surprise when I got it at some that will none of us, you know, well, a bird a Christian was air, but that was the only one of us who was in that just really shocked me and then you know getting going onto that car. I was a nervous wreck even while I was going out, I had a heavy load teaching, which is. How you go, you're going to law school and you teaching us at Houston. Tillerson. Yeah, I, I was. I was doing just that. And I know they stressed the fact that you should not work over twenty hours outside of most schools because long is very jealous mistress, say say, but I needed the money to pay for that -partment rent and I enjoyed teaching. And in fact, I enjoyed that more. All I wanted to do to just pass the colossus. I don't think I flunked in any, but it was just passed in the courses at UT in law school. So yes, that was about it. There you know fast for to being appointed a judge here in Texas first female judge in Texas. What was that day like? Well, I don't know. I thought it was just kind of an honor nary gay. You know, I didn't. No, that I stood out like that, but I got some calls from Dallas. It didn't come out on on the radio, you know? And these people were calling me congratulating me, and then I realized the, you know, the importance of it because I had no idea, you know about who's judge who was not judged. But like I said, in that book, I was I was kind of a nervous wreck going to UT because blacks here lost and kept telling me I was not going to graduate. And then when I graduated, I was not gonna pass the ball, you know. So I made it through going back to Houston Tillerson you found it a program that exposed some of my classmates, and then others down the down the road of what the law profession was really all about toes about the program. Well, I really enjoy. At the pre law society. And I guess the main focus was to get these students who said that they were interested in law to do as much as I could to head them toward law school, and I can't take us a pretty well known program that pre law students can go to. And also I'm not sure whether they had to take a test to go there to be accepted because I remember telling them that that so many of the Jews were able to go because they would go to the library and they would read all those books about, you know, about law school, what expect and that they had to do the same thing if that's what they wanted. So anyway, one of the events, and I don't think I even mentioned in the book, the dean of the law school at Baylor invited us up one Saturday. To spend the day. They are on their campus with some of their loss students present, and they provided a boat ride force in Waco. And also we had Casseus only about eight or nine of us students, and we had dinner at the dean's house, and I was surprised that they would try to have what they thought we would like they had a great Castro because. Because. Yeah. Blacks, like grit. See, I really said about Sam. Thank you for being aware, you know, trying to please us with what they thought that we didn't show it was it was grits and cheese, some kind of grit casserole, but I not ever. We were not ever invited to UT to anything, you know like that. So it's just a matter of trying to get students to register for UT and to try to get them into UT if it was anyway possible enter register for some other schools. I think that those Fleming boys, I think one went to Texas southern and one went to Emory, I'm not sure, but they were very smart young man. And then that was stand Kerr. Now, the professor at UT law school who was supposed to be trying to encourage minority students, but he. I really didn't think of us. Would you know at the Bill. Mccown from Houston, Tillotson for college, you know. But here comes stand Kerr and he seemed to have top score when they looked at his record and he registered the man call me fest. I should never forget the day. He called me. He said, is this stand Kerr who applied to UT law, school abuse to Tillerson is a black is white. What?

"Color participating in clinical studies. We. We definitely want to make sure that the results of clinical studies reflect our country if we want to make sure that we are addressing health equities, we think it is important for communities of color to participate in those studies so that we can make sure that the treatment interventions are work across the diverse patient population of our country. And so we know, and again, we know the past history of issues, but it's important now for patients talk to their physicians about those opportunities. Again, it won't be for everyone, but it's important as as treatment medications interventions are developed. We wanna make sure that they are developed with some knowledge of how effective they are in diverse patient population. Dr hers addressing your specially why. Does middle health matter. I am so glad you asked that in particularly for for this audience, you know, mental health for so long has been looked at as an aside in some areas outside of the medical mainstream in some areas or as a result of character flaw or a more weakness or you just didn't pray hard enough, but we now know that mental disorders, mental illnesses, including a substance use disorders are brain disorders. They are absolutely brain disorders. We have the science and evidence to show that, and so we have to make sure that that information is out there and it's not about a moral weakness or character flaw, or you just didn't pray hard enough brain disorders or chronic medical conditions, just like hypertension, high blood pressure, just like diabetes or no cure. But there. Our our treatment, and we have to make sure that that information is out there. I think we've come a long way. We had so many people as you know, and oftentimes of celebrities come forth with their struggles with bipolar, but their struggles with the Prussian with their struggles with substance used as orders. And that's important because sometimes it is helpful to see that, hey, I'm not the only one. I do not want anyone to suffer insolence for some patients I've treated in the African American community. They said, you know, I thought that it was normal to go through life with a depressed mood or a decrease appetite, or lack of interest or energy. I thought, well, you know, I'm working harder. This is happening, and that's just an almost eight of being when they have been successfully treated. They realize that that is not a nor. Normal say to being. And so I definitely again don't want anyone to suffer in silence. But I know there's a particular challenge in our community regarding the stigma. And so again, that will be something else that I have the opportunity to amplify as a while. I'm in a leader in the important of integrating mental health into overall health. There is no separation always like to say the brain is connected to the rest of the body. So there is no separation. And again, we're getting more and more data that if you're the press your outcomes for diabetes and heart disease are worse. And so we have got to make sure that that everyone, but again, producing those in our community, talk to their physicians about this and appreciate that this is a chronic medical disorder just like any other disorder. We come into grips with some of the conditions in which African American. Live upon particularly homelessness and exposure divide once well, we know it. We know that and then most people call those the social social determinants of health. We heard, I think Robert Wood Johnson say, you know where you live, you work and you play, has an effect on your health as much as your ability to see your physician, and as you're ability to take your medications and your -bility to exercise and eat right. And so we are, we've identified these as particular issues, but we have a long way to go in addressing those. And that's why when we look at health, it is more than about healthcare in the AMA has longstanding policy in looking at these issues regarding the social determinants of health, making sure that it is highlighted that you we need to make your that housing is important. Employment is important and education is important and food secure. Purity is critical in having access to healthy nutritious, fresh food. All of those are issues that have been amplified, but we all have to work together to make sure their solution place and certainly a believe you will. I'm certain you will see the AMA continue to highlight some of those issues of red in certain publication that someone may expand bias and inequality of of caring after American patients are treated different from from the majority population patients is that something to AMA is looking at? Well, certainly we know that there's been studies that show that that provider bias, hand impact health and healthcare, and certainly the AMA is committed to addressing that issue. We, we have been working on this issue. It's been a dentist before again, the work of the commission in disparities identified that issue. But as you know, that like many other issues requires constant work. There is no, it's a journey and not a destination. We will have to be constantly vigilant constantly educating everyone about that teaching that in our medical schools and in our residency training programs. Again, constantly looking at that issue because we know that we do not want bias to impact health care. So we have looked at that and we'll continue to look at that. And again, that problem nor actually any problem is not ours alone to solve. That's why as we saw these issues and look at this issues, it requires an all in approach, but certainly. Visions and the AMA take the lead on on on our issues and addressing these issues. The physician stay in pulling Doug Harris. Does primary care providers look at your specialty as part of this total health wellness scenario? Absolutely. Absolutely. The entire physician community does, I would say just over the less years that I've been involved in the AMA Haussa delegate. We many policies looking at this issue and there is and has been and a trajectory of increasing awareness of the importance of mental health. Again, as regards overall health doctor Patrice a Harris MD president elect of the American Medical Association. If you have questions, comments, suggestions as future in black America.
