Heather McGhee - “The Sum Of Us” And The True Cost Of Racism

"Joe biden and vice president khama harris head to atlanta today where they plan to address tuesday's mass shootings at three spa. That killed eight people including seven women. Six of whom were of asian descent. The trip to atlanta was originally scheduled as part of biden's campaign promoting nearly two trillion dollar american rescue plan democrats hailed. The deal has the largest anti poverty law in a generation. One study projects. It will lift. Almost fourteen million americans out of poverty including five point seven million children while the relief plan has broad public support. Not a single republican supported the legislation. We spend the rest of the hour with heather. Mickey author of the new book. The some of us what. Racism costs everyone. And how we can prosper together. Have there is the board chair of color of change and former president of the think tank. Demos thanks so much for joining us. Heather congratulations on your new book. Thank you congratulations on twenty five years. Thank you so much. The whole team at democracy now is celebrating. Hopefully soon we can celebrate together. Well you just sat there and watched once again. The reverend warnock you tweeted while he was speaking and said everyone should do themselves a favor and watched the speech. Can you talk about the significance of what happened in georgia for this whole country. Reverend warnock the first black democrat to be elected from the former confederacy. It was so moving. I mean i really think of the crucible of the twenty four hours between january fifth and january sixth as american promise in american paralyzed nutshell. I we saw a multi-racial coalition a multi-racial anti-racist coalition that was standing up to four years of division pain and suffering and putting the man who is the successor to reverend dr martin luther king marching through the pews of that story to church and putting him in office. Along with reverend with jon ossoff. That was an historic moment. So many of the political class had counted georgia out and yet a coalition that went from black folks who had been organizing for years with stacey abrams and the touch brown Two white women in the suburbs who turned away from the republican party for the first time and generations young people really overcoming a number of barriers to the ballot in the middle of a pandemic. Did the impossible with the promise of relief from this pandemic. it's self disease that has retaliated disproportionately on people of color. But that has shown that our fates are inextricably linked and then not twenty four hours later the dark spirit of american white supremacy. Fueled by a big lie that has as its core logic racism. The idea the common sense that of course a man who was rejected by the majority of people of color could not possibly have lost the presidency. That of course when people of color vote it is somehow suspect and criminal. This is the tension and explore this tension in my book because fundamentally racism has been the most powerful tool wielded against the best of america against american democracy against cross racial solidarity against the american dream itself. I talk about how it's brought us. The inequality era and figures like reverend warnock who put into perspective who in their own lives have so much of the course of american history on display are whom we need to look to right now to remind us that that tool always robs this country. It's best

Democrats control Senate after three new senators are sworn in

"Hours hours after after President President Joe Joe Biden Biden and and Vice Vice President President Kamila Kamila Harris Harris were were sworn sworn in in the the Senate Senate got got back back to work. Today, Control shifted from Republicans, two Democrats by the slimmest possible margin. First Vice President Harris swore in the new Democratic senators from Georgia who will give her party the numerical edge. And that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter. So help you God. Yeah. Congratulations to tell us more. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle aside there. Hi, Ari. Tell us more about what happened today. So the Senate finalized their transfer of power from a Republican led chambers has been the case since 2015 to 1 that is divided 50 50 and led by one Democrat as the tiebreaker. And that's Vice President Kamala Harris. Democrats 12 weeks ago. But finally today, these two new senators from Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff's who shifted control of the chamber were sworn in and this is ahead of some very heavy lifts ahead. The chambers. New Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in his floor in his former marks, said quote I need to catch my breath so much is happening. But he's already highlighted three big tasks ahead a Senate impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump confirming Biden's Cabinet nominees and taking up a $1.9 trillion biting proposal for new coronavirus coronavirus relief aid. Yeah, Those are three very big tasks. What are Republicans saying about the next steps? We saw Republican leaders extending all of branch today trying to bridge some of this dramatic divide the trump years brought with Democrats. For example, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged this transfer of power in his hopes to work with Biden. And this is the theme I heard from other Republicans today, they thought bite, instruct the right tone. In his inauguration speech, lifting these bipartisan hopes I talked to Alaska senators Lisa Murkowski, Let's take a listen. You can still disagree from a policy perspective and you can do so in ways that are still respectful and allow you to continue to work towards other goals. I also caught up with GOP Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who sounded a similar note. She said Biden struck those right themes of unity and a call for parties to stop viewing one another as adversaries, and she stands ready to advance their common goals. And West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin told Capitol Hill reporters today that a bipartisan group that includes workhouse game Collins would be meeting with Biden administration in the coming days. So again, this bipartisan theme was much of what I heard today from both sides. So how are they plan to tackle impeachment, massive legislation and confirming Biden's cabinet all at once? That will be a real test for whether members can talk into gum at the same time, as they like to say. Democrats are betting they can. One proposal that's being entertained is whether they can split their days between an impeachment trial and confirming these nominees. But first they need to reach a power sharing agreement with Republicans. Then they hope to tackle these big ticket items at warp speed in the coming days.

"Forgiven if you don't remember it now. But the week began with the revelation that trump had called georgia's secretary state and pressured him over an hour to just recalculate the presidential vote in his favor to find the votes. Just one more than the margin to flip the state and on tuesday we had the georgia senate runoff which resulted in the improbable. Victories by democrat. Jon ossoff n raphael warnock today. Republican produce actually conceded the closer those two races and congratulated also on his. The two wins in georgia. Mean that senator mitch. Mcconnell will lose his job as majority leader because the senate will be split fifty fifty an incoming president kamala harris will hold the tiebreaker. So that's a bummer. For mitch. now there's a pretty urging question given the possibility of a second impeachment trial and generally about the agenda for the biden administration confirming cabinet members as well of when warnock ossoff. We'll be seated. After all the point of impeaching. The president isn't just impeachment. Second time to get him out of office requires two thirds of the senate to vote to convict which is tall order. Dangle thinks they wouldn't even take it up but two democratic senators were certainly helped the cause georgia counties until january fifteenth.

Brad robbins burger has another week until the twenty second to certify statewide and then finally the two incoming democratic centers can be sworn it now robbins. Berger says he's aiming to have the certified by joe biden's inauguration on january twentieth. That's no short thing. No matter what happens. Democrats will not have the senate majority in the senate until after the inauguration because again the vice president holds a tiebreaker. For what it's worth. If mike pence somehow becomes president in the next days he gets to choose new. Vp that spot does not automatically go to nancy. Pelosi or anyone else now. House democrats are looking to vote on articles of impeachment next week. If they passed by majority they would then good senate remember. Trump's last senate impeachment. Trial lasted four weeks so it seems unlikely we would see a senate vote anyway before january twentieth. There is a twist here. Which is that trump could potentially still be. Impeached leaves office. There's some legal debate on that question. Impeachment conviction doesn't just remove a president could also bar him from holding office in the future. What duke reports. Democrats believe that possibility could senate republicans some of whom are eyeing a twenty twenty four bid themselves matter what happens.

Pro-Trump mob storms the US Capitol, touting 'Stop the Steal'

"In washington censoring social media. Content and corporate. America speaks out leading today's news. Congress has formerly confirmed the election of joe biden as the sixth president of the united states after rebuffing efforts by a small group of republicans to object to the acceptance of electoral college winds for biden in arizona and pennsylvania. The house and senate began the process of counting electoral college votes wednesday afternoon but the preceding was interrupted for about six hours by a mob that stormed the capitol building. The count resumed at about eight pm. But that was after a woman was shot and killed by capitol police while three other people died for medical emergencies. Day or historic day for american democracy. Maybe a bit of both while the mob delayed presidential certification and lead doorbell violence. It didn't stop the process or institutions and lawmakers. Were able to reconvene later that night. Some other happenings. The second of two runoff elections in georgia was called in the democrats favor handing 'binding control of the senate and solidifying his economic policy platform. Both jon ossoff and rough high warnock lead their opponents by more than the point five percentage point threshold for a recount triggering. A blue wave to descend on washington. How did the market respond. Trading was largely unaffected by the chaos at the us capitol and ended the such mostly higher on expectations of more robust stimulus. Package tech fell back. The possibility of antitrust legislation though futures linked to the major averages all powered higher overnight. I think the reason the markets are flunks. Is it's not going to change. The transition of power said tom lee of fun strut global advisors the ten year treasury yield also broke above one percent for the first time since the pandemic began in late march sparking a rally in the banking sector in other news. The disarray seen in washington. Also shift online. As both twitter and facebook suspended president trump from posting on their sites it marked the social media industry strongest actions to date to rein in controversial content citing risks of violence and repeated and severe violations of their policies. Twitter which luck. Trump's account for twelve hours also warned that further violations of its rules could lead to a permanent suspension. What happened the platforms have been labeling election related tweets by trump since november which made declarations of victory and claim. There was a plot to steal votes. The final straw appeared to be a video circulated by trump in which he described those who showed up for the rally as very special called the election. Fraud hewlett and said. He understands how the protesters feel. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it. Especially the other side he added. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order thought bubble. Censorship concerns over violence were raised during a recent. Us senate commerce committee. Hearing when twitter's dorsey was asked how supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei of iran was allowed to glorify bloodshed in many of his tweets without eighty tc downs his response we did not find those violate our terms of service because we considered them which is part of speech of world leaders in concert with other countries speech against our own people or countries on citizens we believe is different and can cause more immediate harm outlook.

Even though i totally disagree with the outcome of the election and the facts bear me out. Nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on january twentieth.

"Why did you think that now is the time to run an office and run for. Us senate well. My whole life has been about service. I'm pastor served beneath baptist church. But i've been engaged in these fights from that copay for years i've been fighting for healthcare access and affordability for years standing up in acts of civil disobedience demanding that we expand medicaid in the state. I've been fighting for voting rights at work alongside. My friend stacy abrams. We registered through the new georgia project. Which i chaired. Four hundred thousand new voters in the state. I've been standing up for the dignity of workers and they're ready to share in some of the prosperity that they've created and i think my passion for these issues emerges from my life story someone who grew up in public housing down in savannah. Georgia wanted twelve number eleven and the first college graduate my family so my success as a result of hard work but also grants low interest student loans. Good public policy. I know the difference that good public policy meetings and as running for the us senate and so in your campaign running around the state. That hasn't voted for a democrat for president since ninety. Two and president-elect. Joe biden is on the cusp of perhaps winning the state of georgia talk about one. Why president-elect biden's message seemed to resonate in georgia and what impact that has had on your race and also talk about what you've heard on the campaign trail because i can imagine you went all around the state. You didn't just stay in atlanta campaigning. No that's a good point. I've been moving all across the state. And you know that. That's important jonathan because there is this narrative in georgia politics. There's atlanta and then the rest of the state and so i'm from savannah southeast part of the state. But i've been on a bus moving across the state dropped by small towns like america's george <hes>. Cuthbert georgia down randolph county. And the people are surprised. When i show up and i'm surprised that they're surprised but they say to me that they have not seen a candidate show up in their town. Which is interesting to me. Because i'm running to represent the whole state rule and the north and the south. And i'm getting to see first. Hand the concerns that people are having and what do people concerned about. They're concerned about healthcare. They're concerned about the fact that they want to make sure they don't lose the coverage that they have that coverage is affordable had eight hospitals close in this state largely because we refuse to expand medicaid is the unnecessary war that the republican party has waged against president obama who no longer in office and the people are the casualties in that war. Their hospitals are closing in these rural areas devastating rule healthcare and also taking away jobs. And so i think the people voted the other night when they voted for joan by. And when david purdue failed to get a majority of his voters even though he's the incumbent and i finished ahead of kelly leffler even though she's the incumbent that people are voting for unity over division and chaos there voting for healthcare they're voting for a livable wage and the ability to retire with dignity. They're voting for the best in the human condition and the american spirit when you're out on the campaign trail though in those parts of georgia that perhaps aren't hospitable to a democratic candidate. What kind of response are you getting. What are you hearing from those voters. I think people appreciate the fact that you're willing to talk to them. And that's my orientation is not a strategic political decision. Quite frankly part of what running gives me an opportunity to do. Is to do what i would normally want to do. Anyway and spend time with talking to people who don't see the world exactly the way. I do one of the things that disappointed me. About the fact that we're living through this deadly and tragic pandemic is that i had hoped earlier in the campaign to get across the state and drop into some of these wednesday night bible studies. I'm a passenger after all and they're people who don't share my politics but we read from the same book and there must be some values there must be some common ground. There must be a place where we can talk about the things that we actually agree on.

"That you learned from him. Yeah i i met congressman lewis When i was very very Growing up in the south growing up in atlanta in particular i just became fascinated by one of the learn as much as i could about civil rights history and so i read john lewis memoir walking with the wind about his time in the movement using the student nonviolent coordinating committee in his early twenties and was so inspired that. I wrote him a letter me. If i could meet with him or interview with them or volunteer for them and being the kind of man that he was he not only wrote me back up to the chance to come and spend a couple of months working with them and then took me under his wing and guided me through my career And he instilled in me a real belief in the capacity of people working together citizens working together to expand opportunity and justice and human rights for all people on this planet and that that is what i am passionate about building the beloved community that john lewis dot us about where we recognized folly of racism and violence and poverty but we don't accept already and homelessness as where we build bonds of trust between all people rooted in a recognition of our of our common humanity our commitment to human rights. Yeah i love that. Those are not those are aspirants but also things that we need to be working for every single day. So i'm grateful for the work that you continue Doing that in two thousand seventeen. Of course you ran for. Congress came very very close to flipping a very very red seat and your race was somewhat of a bellwether for the blue wave that Happened in the midterms. You're no stranger to a georgia runoff. Besides the obvious difference in campaigning during a pandemic. What's been different about this senate run from your congressional run while well you know six weeks before i got in that race for the us house. The republican incumbent had been reelected by twenty four percent right and twenty eighteen. Stacey abrams lost the governor's race here. Infamously running against the man who administered the election by just a point and a half. I mean georgia has become younger and more diverse every hour of every day for the last ten years and that has been met with an extraordinary investment in volunteer recruitment and voter registration mobilization organize. And that's why. Joe biden was able to edge out donald trump in the presidential and how we were able to force both of these senate runoff senate runoff So you know we are building a movement statewide here for health jobs and justice for all people you've got. The young jewish son of an immigrant mentor by john. Lewis running alongside black preacher. Who holds dr king's pulpit at ebenezer baptist church in atlanta and that just shows you how far we've come as a state and as a region that these are. The standard-bearers is the most competitive state in the country. And i want to urge everybody to to stay involved and get involved in helping because we can achieve extraordinary things where we when these races we can ask a fifteen dollars minimum wage. We can expand the pell grant program and ensure that no one has to take on debt to get a four year degree from a public college or nhpc you can pass student loan debt relief. We can make extraordinary investments in clean energy infrastructure. We can pass a new civil rights act to advance criminal justice reform. But if we don't win these races mcconnell will block all of that so the opportunity to do real good is here. And i'm urging folks to elect john j. o. n. dot com and sign up to make phone calls text. Bank getting you sort of have a running mate. You mentioned the the other campaign reverend warren campaign and you all are been joining forces. How's that coalition. Been working out. And how's that helping to make sure that both of you are engaging with a diverse group of voters. Well it makes me reflect on the first meal. I ever shared with john. Lewis what he wanted to talk about was the alliance between jews and blacks in the south during the civil rights movement as a young jewish man. Working in his office he wanted to impress upon media. Importance of that alliance. That would be nurtured richard sustained and i know that he is looking down on me and the reverend running and and smiling and urging us on because it represents that historic alliance for human rights and civil rights. I mean it was nineteen fifty seven when dr king established the dlc atlanta one thousand nine hundred eighty eight when the temple. My synagogue was bombed in atlanta and the alliance has just grown since then. So this is the new south and and you know that the republicans since the early nineteen seventies have have run what they call the southern strategy. It's all about dividing southerners along racial and cultural lines. But we're building a multi-racial coalition based upon shared economic and health interests of working people. Here and the the movement energy georgia right now is is something special. We're we're gonna help. We're gonna go to elect john dot com the site that you mentioned elect john elect j. o. And dot com. We're gonna go there and swing left of course is is working really hard to Plug people into your campaigns. One last question before i let you go that we always end with what gives you the most hope for the future. Give me the most hope for the future is all the young people who are coming out to us rallies and voting for the first time and the extraordinary intensity which young people are passionate about advancing civil rights criminal justice reform and saving our environment raising wages for working people establishing healthcare as a human right and the opportunity that we have when we win the senate races to do so much good for so many people. So i'm asking all the young folks out there to double down. Make time to make those phone calls activate everybody you know in georgia to get out to the polls And help us win a record. Seven point seven million georgians are registered to vote ahead of january fifth. So we have a lot of phone calls to make. And i know you have a lot of work to do so thank you much.

"John asa. Thanks so much. For coming on the podcast. Thank you so much. Jonathan grade the bigger right so you just started a bus tour a six day bus tour. If i remember right where are you going. And what kind of reception have you been. Been getting because it's been a one day already so far. Yesterday we were out in in madison and augusta and we will be hitting not just every major city but <hes>. Several dozen small towns will be very visible in rural georgia. And this is the health jobs and justice bus tour across the state in the program that we are encouraging folks to get out and vote to support is one that ensures every georgian has great healthcare that we invest in economic recovery and job creation infrastructure clean energy and that we passed major criminal justice reform at a new civil rights act and that is galvanizing our coalition. There is movement like energy in georgia. Right now and as. You've heard me talk about jonathan. The situation in georgia is unusual. Because you've got a young jewish son of an immigrant running alongside a black preacher. This is not how democrats have been running in the south for the last couple of decades of talk more about that. Because i've heard you say that in television interviews <unk>. Mostly in television interviews. And you know you both. You and reverend warnock who. You're talking about another person. Who's been on the podcast of your both sons of the south but for you in particular you were born and raised in georgia. As you just said you jewish-american and for a lot of people. The south has not been hospitable to african americans or jewish-americans. Talk talk about your your <hes>. Your childhood your upbringing a did you endure wild antisemitism there in georgia not wild anti semitism up but it's something that pops up from time to time in the life of any jewish person. I think that. Because i don't wear a keep up right a yarmulke because i'm not outwardly. Observant <hes>. I would not attract the same sort of over a of anti-semitism might who's judaism is more apparent externally or as a black person might in the south. But i think that when i inflict on my childhood so i was bar mitzvah at the temple which is a a reform synagogue in atlanta and one of the interesting things about the history of the temple is that it was nineteen fifty seven when dr king established the elsie in atlanta and it was nineteen fifty eight when the temple was bombed and from the late nineteen fifties through the civil rights movement of the early and mid nineteen sixties and all the way through the present day there has been an alliance between blacks and jews in georgia and when i first sat down to have a meal with congressman john lewis because my first ever exposure to anything like public service was working as a very very young man in his office where he wanted to talk to me. You were in high school. That's why it's had very very young man that exactly. I mean we ever had for about ninety minutes. He wanted to talk about that alliance. He wanted to talk about how he marched. Alongside rabbis and jewish activists. Here was a young jewish man in his office. He wanted to talk about the necessity of nurturing and strengthening that alliance and not taking for granted that that would happen on. Its own and so i- i reflect often as you've heard me reflect about how he is looking down on us right now in georgia smiling.

"And being the kind of man that he was he invited me to come and spend a few months working for him in his office and the very first meal that we share he wanted to talk to me for about an hour and a half about the historic bonds between the jewish in black communities here in georgia and during the civil rights loop and then being the man that he was when i left his office he he stayed involved in my life. He meant for me for seventeen years. He helped guide me through my career through my personal life and i miss him early but feel his presence. Strongly here with us. Do you think we'll ever get the name of that bridge. The edmund pettus bridge changed to john. Lewis bridge you. Don't we very well might. I mean i was actually in in selma just a few weeks ago And it was my first time visiting the bridge and looking down the slope of that bridge as it enters the city and imagining how they must have felt singing staring at row after row of troopers with billy clubs in dogs knowing that they were walking into brutal violence possibly death just for daring to demand the right to vote for black americans in the south in the mid sixties. It was it was a moving experience to go in and visit a place of pilgrimage. You mentioned the youth of civil rights activists and participants back in the sixties. You are not a very old man yourself you. I believe you were thirty three years old. What do you say to people who might react with. Well that's a bit young. What have you done near thirty three years. That makes you a good candidate. For senate and senator well first of all. I think that my used one of my greatest strengths as canada.
