How Police Violence Could Impact The Health Of Black Infants
"Floyd's killing in Minneapolis placed police violence again in the national limelight, with protests erupting. But black and Brown communities say the effective police violence is felt long after demonstrations died down. In fact, research shows trauma from racism and violence can leave imprints on a community's health, including on pregnant women. Here's NPR's Yuki Noguchi. Outside the corner store where George Floyd died. Murals, stuffed animals and origami cranes filled the street. So I'm Rachel Heart of men. I am on the faculty. Rachel Hardman grew up nearby and it's a public health professor at the University of Minnesota. We walk in a field where there's a memorial for victims of police violence. It looks like a replica of a cemetery with about 200 grave markers like Ralph Bell, right? Hard del Cheryl over here. Many of these people were local and died at the hands of police. Travis Jordan in Minneapolis. He's actually it was a friend of one of my dear friends, Hardman surveys to makeshift cemetery. My first thought, is it This isn't even all of the names. And that breaks my heart. This scene, she says, doesn't capture the whole of the problem that police violence leaves marks across a community of survivors, their families and neighbors. Hardiman studies racial disparities in health, focusing on a longstanding problem. Black mothers die in childbirth of 3 to 4 Times The rate of whites That holds true regardless of wealth or education. Black babies are more than twice as likely to die in their first year. Research suggests racial discrimination is a likely cause of both preterm birth and infant mortality. Weighing factors like obesity, smoking or poor prenatal care. Hartmann's latest research looks at how police violence in particular might affect that. She studied women in and around Minneapolis after police shot Philando Castille in 2016, and two years later, Thurman Blevins Thurman Blevins had just been killed in North Minneapolis. And we asked folks do you feel like this is impacting your current pregnancy and Over half of the women in our study said Yes, nearly 60% of those women gave birth to pre term babies who were underweight or died at route, she says. It's about stress. Ah, lifetime of struggles of her housing, education and safety. Large body research shows that that stress across pregnancy can have an impact on low birth weight and preterm birth in particular. Then in the start of life is so important, because if we can't get that, right, you know we're setting someone up for a lifetime of pain and a struggle and disadvantage. Examining these struggles, Hardman says, might help doctors better understand challenges for women like Raven Cane. I meet cane and her three week old daughter, Remmy. Okay. Prior to Remmy Kane had five miscarriages with no medical explanation about what caused them. I had gotten an ultrasound and had seen a baby in a strong heartbeat. Literally had come back the next day, and there was nothing there. So I just had this really high anxiety anxiety about losing her pregnancy with Remmy, too. She was about four months pregnant when the pandemic hit. Then George Floyd died blocks from her parent's home. You know, During that time, it was constant sirens when they were saying that the KKK was supposedly in town, and it's just stressful. It's like and then you're trying to Carry life and then you're thinking about them being a black person in this world and the things that they might encounter, Kane tried to distract herself by hosting a family party to reveal she was having a girl. My dad was jumping open down like he was so heavy, he said. He was in the garage and cried a little bit, cried partly out of relief. He told her the world wasn't safe for black boys. Midwife Rebecca Polston. Here's that often. Holsten started roots community birth center five years ago to offer women more support than a traditional hospital. Clinic defied the odds in five years on Lee. One client has had a preterm birth, she says. That's because the clinic addresses trauma. Some of the things that we explore is not finding out the sex. Of their baby because the stress that it brings when you find out that you're having a black sun. That kind of stress, she says, is palpable all around her. After George Floyd's death, Colston says she confronted a group of white men flying Confederate flags three blocks away. She closed the birthing center for a week. But the threat, she says, isn't just from outsiders. Once an elderly neighbor fainted nearby, Polston and her staff rushed to help and the police came up with their hands on their guns saying, What are you doing to us while we're taking blood pressure clearly healthcare providers those Interactions where those who you call for help. May not come to help you but come to harm you shadows every aspect of one's life and it becomes especially acute when you're in your birthing phase of your life. That rings true for coming Love Valenzuela. I don't know how to explain it, but I feel like that trauma is just in my body balance way Low is a doula. Originally from Chile Four years ago, she went into early labor. On her way to the hospital. Police pulled her over for driving with high beams on she told him. him. I I have have an an emergency. emergency. I'm I'm pregnant pregnant and and he he stops stops me. me. I I need need to to see see your your driver's driver's license license and and registration. registration. So So I'm I'm scrambling, scrambling, shaking. shaking. Just remembering makes like my heart beagle so fast. She was scared and her contractions intensified. She says he'd be raided her ticketed her and insisted she keep the windows rolled down its frigid cold. I'm crying my tears or freezing as they're coming down because it's so cold. Her baby survived. But this spring, Valenzuela nearly died giving birth to her second child. She blames her earlier encounter with police because my uterus had worked so hard, potentially from this previous Drama. I actually had an acute hemorrhage. Two months later, George Floyd died about a mile away. She's still haunted that he called out for his mother as he died. So, too, is researcher Rachel Hardiman. You know, when George plaids yelled for his mama and summon all mothers, Hardman stands just a few feet from where he was killed. It's just so painful. You know, this'd why do the work that I do is so that every mom gets to have a healthy baby and Have a good life. She's expanding her research nationally to keep digging into the connections between police violence and its impact on mothers and their babies.

Cardi B SLAMS Candace Owens After She Calls Her an 'Illiterate Rapper'
"It's blowing up right now. So this is candace owens versus Cardi B. and not just doing this to be silly I. Did they actually got into something kinda substantive here it started when. Canvas was on Ben Shapiro's Sunday special. Let's take look the clip. I completely agree with your assessment about Cardi B. It is one of the biggest insult if Black Americans are not insulted by the fact that Joe Biden who has been hiding in his basement you know for the entire year maiden appear to come up because he was going to do an interview with Cardi B.. We we have nothing better to offer. I. Mean this be tend to. Donald Trump saying I'm going to give no. Interviews, but he came up and he decided to give an interview to Justin Bieber right I mean I wish I actually just be I'm sorry. I know you are a Christian Man I. Don't want to put you in the same boat as Cardi B. but it it would be absurd white America would go what what is this why? Why are you being interviewed by Justin Bieber and it's because you're pandering right? You're pandering you look at Cardi's instagram easy. She has millions of followers and you think. Okay. This is an illiterate person, and if I if I appeal to this a person and she does a group like she literally did in the middle of this interview, they think she's cool. She's hip just by sitting here and and taking this interview walking will vote for me. It's basically saying black people you are stupid. You are dumb and you're so foolish I mean do you think what if she just said in the middle of the interview Joe Biden? Can you name one Cardi B. Album? Not Jimmy favor just one Cardi B. Lyric. He couldn't do it. Of course he's not because he's being handled and they're saying black people like this person this is what they're into, and so here you go talk to her. Okay. So Cardi, b. e. then heard what candy said and she hit back she did a couple of videos I think four videos on instagram shows on camera, but you could hear her talking in the exact quote that she said she's talking about. Canvas she says, she has an identity crisis just because she is black doesn't mean she gives a F- about blacks and you can hear also saying the candidates owns husband George. as part of a group that she like into an upper-class kkk of the UK now first off. I was at Atkinson in Georgia's wedding George a great guy they are a fantastic couple. The wedding was one of the most spectacular weddings I've ever been to and it was just filled. With love and there were black people and white people and there were straight people and gay people and there were Republicans and Democrats, it was it was a truly just a just an absolutely wonderful wedding with with a meeting of Families George comes from an upper class family in the UK. Candice comes from Philly from mostly lower middle class family and that everybody was just dancing and having a great time. So this nonsense from Cardi, B. But anyway, that's what her. Take on what candy said was, and then you know candidates. So she's not just going to sit there and take it. So campus followed up with a couple tweets and I'm going to read to you she said Malcolm X. warned us years ago about the puppetry of interviews like Cardi B. and Joe Biden, he always spoke out against the White Liberal game of using entertainers pawns. This isn't really about you Cardi B. This is about black America Waking Up to Democrat racism. She went on and another tweet to say never listened to a person that has private security but once the public police defended never listened to a millionaire that made it here in America but trashes our country. These Hollywood idols are frauds leading sheep down paths they never took when they discovered success. So so candidates makes what I think are pretty cogent salient points and Cardi B. Then jumps back in. Cardi visas well, paying taxes is something that as much as I hate, it's a reality I will always have to pay but I rather might tax money go to free education than police funding use my money on something useful your president us our tax money to fund is empty camp in ruts. So trump uses his campaign a. Uses the tax money to fund his campaign is that is that right? Well, can't jump back in and said one your tax dollars or ready to go already go to free education. Jesus. That is true to know campaign uses tax dollars for funding. That is illegal that is also true and three defunding police initiatives has led to two hundred percent increases in black men getting shot in inner cities stop supporting black people dying.

What Was the Tulsa Race Massacre?
"In Tulsa Oklahoma, a group of scientists and historians is on the verge of unearthing chunk of the city's past that has long been buried and one. Some people may prefer to keep that way. It's a potential mass grave from worst single incident of interracial violence in American history. Beginning may thirty first in nineteen twenty one thousands of armed white. Tulsen's invaded black section of the booming oil town, terrorizing its residence looting, their homes and businesses and burning to the ground, some thirty five square blocks of the city. Before the rampage was over more than ten thousand black people were left homeless, and more than six thousand were turned in camps where they'd stay in some cases for months. We spoke with Scott, Ellsworth, a native Tulsa and a professor of African American history at the University of Michigan. Ellsworth is the author of the Nineteen Eighty two book death in a Promised Land, one of the first books to take a comprehensive historical look at the Tulsa race massacre previously mystically called the Tulsa race riot of nineteen twenty one. He said to this day. We don't know how many died. Reasonable estimates range from I would say forty to his high as three hundred. When the unmarked suspected mass grave and a Tulsa cemetery is excavated in July of two thousand twenty. It may provide a few answers to exactly what happened over those two days and nineteen twenty one. It will be for many a literal. Reopening of a wound festered within the city for nearly a century. The Tulsa massacre of nineteen twenty one did not a word often used to describe such events erupt. The city simply reached. What now seems an inevitable breaking point? In early nineteen, twenty one tulsa was awash cash from the oil boom. The good fortune reached into the north section of the city, mostly populated by black Americans. That later to be known as the Black Wall Street contained one hundred ninety one businesses, including hotels feed store, a roller rink cleaners, mom and pop stores and restaurants plus offices for doctors, dentists and lawyers. The area had at least five churches to a library movie theater and a hospital. Like the rest of the city at that time, the black area also known as Greenwood had its problems alcohol, even under prohibition was readily available. Illegal drugs were easy to find to. As we're gambling and prostitution the whole city, not just greenwood struggled with crime end with lawless punishment less than a year before a white teenager, accused of murder, was taken from jail cell and lynched by a white mob. The police did little to protect him. And Racial Violence against black people was commonplace, even though thousands of black Americans had just returned from fighting in World War. One Jim Crow Laws and pervasive racist attitudes meant that equality remained nothing more than a dream for black Americans and many white Americans. Wanted to keep it that way. Ellsworth route and in two thousand one report commissioned by the State of Oklahoma on then called riot that quote during the weeks and months leading up to the riot, there were more than a few white Tulsen's who only feared. The color line was in danger of being slowly erased a believed that this was already happening. So into that explosive milieu, a black teenaged boy, working as a shoeshiner, had a brief run in with a white teenage girl operating elevator. and. The fuse was lit. The boy was taken into custody. A group of more than two thousand angry white people, some intent on lynching him, possibly prompted by an inflammatory editorial in a white run newspaper gathered on the courthouse steps some armed black war, veterans and others squared off with them there and soon shots were fired. White people from all over the city began their march on the green. What area to tamp down? What many white people saw as an uprising? Their stories of black citizens being murdered in their homes interrupted in their evening prayers. The terror went on for eighteen hours into June first. Despite their sworn duty to serve and protect neither Tulsa police, nor any other government agency assisted the black population. Instead Tulsa police officers helped set some buyers, an all white unit of the National Guard joined the invaders. Other. Public officials provided guns and AMMO two white men. The KKK got involved a semi functioning machine gun was on black. Tulsen's and some reports indicate the airplanes dropped homemade fire starters. Despite being largely outnumbered black Tulsen's fought to protect their homes and businesses and most of all. Greenwood. But in the end, scores of black people and some white people were killed in. Greenwood was left in ruins. The exact numbers of injured and dead. Even after what's to be uncovered in three suspected mass graves may never be known. It's still unclear exactly what happened between the Black Shoeshine Boy Dick Rowland and the white. Elevator Goal Sarah page to spark the massacre. Though one thing is known. She refused to bring charges. Roland was vindicated. For years. Tulsa refused to acknowledge in any meaningful way. What had happened in nineteen twenty one. Nobody has ever been charged or prosecuted for the crimes that occurred during those eighteen or so hours, even those who grew up there ellsworth included were not taught that part of the city's history. The Tulsa race massacre became a terrible and closely held secret. That began to change with Ellsworth's defeated promised land, and some earlier work, then in nineteen ninety-five, when members of the national media descended on Oklahoma City after the bombing of the federal building, they were informed of this other more terrible episode of domestic terrorism in the state's history. More news accounts and more books of the massacre followed and twenty nineteen, the HBO Comic Book Superhero Series Watchmen inspired in part by Tulsa, enlightened many to the story. But pulses failed efforts to come to grips with its deadly past has left scars. Ellsworth said city was robbed of its honesty. You have entire generations growing up in Tulsa who've never heard of this your people growing up with a false reality, a false vision of the land they were on I mean imagine if today right now that you had young people growing up in Manhattan, who had never heard of nine eleven, but there were no books to talk about nine eleven that it's as if it didn't exist. The race massacre was a gigantic myth in the history of Tulsa it was deliberately buried for a long time. With the honor thing of one of at least three suspected mass graves and Tulsa next month will mark another step in the long road to understanding and perhaps one day recovery.

Dayton's Road to Pandemic Recovery
"We've been taking a look around the country at how different cities or dealing with the fallout from the pandemic. Today we head to Dayton Ohio unlike other places Dayton hasn't been a hot spot for the coronavirus and the death toll has been low but the pandemic is just the latest in a series of struggles. The city has faced in the past year our reporter Doug Belkin visited the city recently and joins me now Doug Dayton Ohio has been through a lot in recent years even before the pandemic from natural disasters to rising numbers of deaths the OPIOID crisis. Can you tell us a little? Bit more about the position Dayton was in before the pandemic it. It's a fascinating town. It really punched above. Its weight for a long time. Many years ago it was a home of a lot of innovation. The Wright brothers came from there there are a lot of major manufacturing companies and engineering companies that really employed thousands of people and built a Beautiful City in the early twentieth century. The housing stock is really lovely. But it fell on hard times. A lot of those companies moved south to chase cheaper labor and the revenue into the city declined significantly and then they had really hard shock. The financial crisis in two thousand and seven and eight pulled a lot of jobs out that didn't return and then the opiate crisis that was really ground zero. It's a lot of highways going in and out of Dayton and it made it a kind of a pitstop for these drugs and they were just hundreds and over the years. Thousands of people who overdosed from opioids. So they were very hard and then last summer they had a string of horrible tragedies. They had a tornado that wiped out part of the town and killed people they had A mass shooting in downtown shopping district that killed nine people and injured another twenty people and they had a Klu Klux Klan rally Which really hard for the people there so last year was very difficult moment for them and all of that brings us up now to the pandemic and Ohio responded to the coronavirus pandemic with one of the nation's strictest lockdowns how has the corona virus now impacted Dayton and our elected officials grappling with it so the virus itself has not taken deep root there the shutdown or have been very effective or at least the pandemic did not make huge inroads. There's been about fifteen people who've died in Dayton of a city of one hundred forty thousand six hundred confirmed cases so the sickness has been. You know it's the specter has there but the fear was a major problem in the shutdown and the economic implications of the shutdown have been dramatic. And what we wrote about in the story was a lot of of what that's done to the economy to the people in the town to the churches in the town and even to the revenue of the city. And how they're gonNA deal with it and how they're sort of handcuffed because they will have less revenue to keep their social safety net strong so we spoke to the mayor of the City Nan. Whaley WHO's trying to lead the community through this and this is what she had to say. And when since we all become mayors because you can see directly the impact you make you get to make decisions and you have this control but the more you do it the more you realize the less control you really have. So what she's talking about here is the fact that these these tragedies that happened last summer in the pandemic it's going on now are all national and international issues. The handgun issue is a national problem. The racism issue that the KKK was part of is obviously a national issue tornadoes. That came through As part of the change in climate and this pandemic as part of a global problem and one thing that they all have in common that the mayor belief is that the federal response has not been robust enough to help cities and towns and they are ending up dealing with these problems by themselves with much smaller resources than the federal government. Has IT Doug? You also spoke to members of the Dayton community. What did you hear from them about how they're coping right now? So a lot of folks were really knocked back on their heels by the shutdown A lot of business owners you know. Obviously they shut down their businesses and they were concerned that they wouldn't be able to restart them and a lot of folks were laid off from their jobs. I spoke to one woman named bridget. Hadn't who has had to dig into her children's college savings account to get by these last few months. And here's bridget. I think this is going to Their their futures. They're gonNA come out of this with a lot of debt Things that they shouldn't have to endure at their ages. I planned for this. I planned in plan for this so that they wouldn't have to do this and now I'm giving into their college funds just to be able to survive day to day and we know that the people around the country are digging into their children's college savings account to get through these periods of unemployment. This is a national issue. And it's it's playing out in Dayton along with everyone else and a big question that all of us are grappling with now is what happens next when the pandemic is over and and what does our new normal look like. Here's mayor naturally again in what she had to say about that. I do think during the tragedies of Dayton last year I did feel the region really come together to support the city. The city center which was very special. I worry that that could go away. Because of the WACO vid puts people in their corner really fast both politically and like literally in the corner. You know in their home. Dave chapelle lives in that area. The wonderful comedian and he gave a show after the the mass shooting to help bring the community together and to heal the community and one thing that the mayor said was that that's not possible now. People can't gather here show so she asked. How do you heal a community? That's gone

"Had to happen we have to bring race into it because how else are Democrats going to win in November unless I can do two things related to blacks number one you gotta convince blacks that Republicans are all racist slave owning plantation owning all full KKK members and number two you gotta give them out to vote so what do you do you tell on that the Republicans are trying to take away their vote and Callum so now you're ready for this Ohio representative Marcia fudge says officials are re opening businesses that black people use in order to put black people at risk you can't make this stuff up let me just say really quickly about that opening things you know they open the beauty salons and barber shops in the bowling alleys movie theaters when they start opening up the country clubs in the tennis balls and I'm at first because they just opened up things a black people too because I know we've got to check and they want to spend they don't care about our safety that's why when they start to open up things they go to then I'll understand if half of them to start to open up some things for us imagine that individual is part of the United States government she I don't know that she truly believes this in fact I don't think she does believe this I think she says these things because she thinks her constituents are stupid that that allowing barbershops and hair salons and nail salons to re open is because black people go too long and not white people and because somehow they wanna they wanna get them checks back from them black people that just got their stimulus checks and that's how we'll do it will open the malls in the hair salons and the the nail salons as to trick them black people into spending their money so what does this say about her view of blacks in America the blacks don't go to country clubs the blacks are not financially successful part of the Democrat narrative is and always will be black people your poor you get your money from the government and if you dare say you're not and you don't then you're an uncle Tom you're trying to get too big you forgotten the black people behind the black people need to say pull me to stay poor and broke we'll give you your bomb a phone in your welfare check in your stimulus check but if you start daring to say I'm glad they opened a barbershop I need to get a hair cut I'm glad they opened a nail salon I need to get my hair my nails done I'm glad they opened the shop in my neighborhood so I can get back to work and so that I can get things taken care of that I want to get taken care if you dare say that if you dare say that you'll be like the woman in in Michigan who came out and thanked Donald Trump she's a Democrat elected official she came out and thanked Donald Trump for the suggestion on the treatment to save her life her life were not talking politics anymore her life and so what the Democrats still listen Sir censured her they said you're not one of us you're you're in trouble you said nice things about Donald Trump and when asked about it the head of the Republican Party for her district said that's what political parties are for we get to decide not her you'll be like Vernon Jones the representative in Georgia who dared to suggest last week that he was endorsing president trump because president trump's policies have been good for his district they call him an uncle Tom and harassed him the harassment was so severe that additionally he was going to resign and then he finally decided no I'm going to fight back people said change parties become Republicans I'm not a Republican or Democrat but I can be a Democrat who endorses Donald Trump of I think his policies are better I think it's quite interesting that he didn't change policy details parties this is my views are Democrats but the president's doing a good job listen we don't want you you can't think for yourself especially not if you're black there's got to come a point when black people say I'm not gonna let them tell me what my opinions will be look I'm not gonna deny there's racism in America I'm not going to deny that some people don't like black people many of those people are black people themselves I'm not going to deny that some black people don't get a job because they're black it happens I'm not going to deny that somebody doesn't lock their door when they see a what a black person walking in the street are a little more scared of a black person is crossing the street but you don't know who that person is it might be a white liberal you don't know how long is it going to be until black people finally say you cannot right the story of my life for me you cannot tell me who I will like and dislike what I will do and not do based on my skin color you don't own me there are a lot of blacks in America who are not free there are a lot of blacks in America who are not living the American dream who are not independent who are not in charge of their own lives and then you get the flip side New York City Taylor defies the order and let an openly say it and opens his tailor shop and says why is a liquor store essential and I'm Peter Elliott says quote we've applied for every loan every break to no avail we got bogus so he made the decision I'm opening my doors come hell or high water he admits that many of the customers who can afford his fifteen thousand dollar suits have fled the city for vacation homes but he is here to provide emotional essential support for the one still in town the retailer is also offering them what he jokingly calls internal vaccinations Chivas regal Kentucky Bourbon have a nip and you'll feel better he says during the shut down he had to cut twelve members of his twenty one person staff some of whom have been with him for thirty five years he only has two employees one of the register one on the floor in the store at a time and he's expecting a shipment of masks from Italy to hand out to customers he says I'm fighting for the soul of my company and my people I'm doing what I think is right to protect my business and my employees from this disaster noting that the longtime shoe repair shop across the street from his store packed up for good last month he adds I hope everyone comes back but I know they won't I'm doing the common sense thing to protect my business I saw a poll that came out today folks it said eighty nine percent of Americans fear economic collapse thank you Dan it wasn't the virus you all let us get back to business gosh it's so terrible what the virus did the virus devastated Manhattan and some nursing homes and some random individuals the virus didn't close businesses in towns that haven't had a single infraction the pharmacist didn't kill the supply chain some people got sick the same way people get sick with the flu I'm not here to minimize it I feel horrible for people who died but why is it we don't hear about anybody who's dad except if they died from corona virus with eight

Univision's Ilia Caldern is Grounded by the People She Covers
"This week final. Two Democratic presidential hopefuls faced off in the eleventh primary debate and face questions from one of America's preeminent Latina Journalists Jones. Ilia Darren we spoke with Ilia about the leap of faith. She took to begin her career in the states. What she left behind what it means to make history. Your career has been one of many firsts and you make it all look as you make everything you do look easy but being the first is never easy. It's never easy but the way I see it. I Lisa is as hard to go through so many things that you have to go through to be here is a woman as an Hispanic in the United States as a black woman but at the same time it gives me the drive to think about others to think about the new generations so for me this is big but is going to be bigger if I leave this doors open for someone else for a minority. That has to be here when I leave or before I leave this position knowing that one day that he's going to be the norm knowing that one day that is not going to make be lines when happens talk to me about two thousand one and making that leap from Columbia to the US market. Because I have to imagine that was the biggest leap you've made in your career. I was in Colombia working for Sammy. One of the main news gust and Primetime I came to the United States on location and I wanted to Miami and they go to live in south beach swung by Telemundo. I wanted to see how journalists that I used to see Works I went there through a friend that a friend that works there. They give me a tour and when I sat down with Maggie Man the word I want to mention her name because she was the one that changed everything she told me. What are you doing? This like news anchoring Columbia but why did he knew casting Columbia Gusting Warp? Eight months ago. We went to Olympia. We had cussing. We brought the main anchors in the country. And you're not there so like no one told me about a casting Just like you do a guest email. Say like four is and then she called the vice president of news and Telemundo and he told me lsu casting what I've learned right place right time but I don't know that I've ever heard a story like that said he came. We did the cussing the very same day. I was sitting with the president of Telemundo and he was offering me a dose. Is there any part of me? That's like we gotta pump the brakes. This is all happening but you know what like been at the right place at the right time but at the same time making the seasons and not being afraid of making big decisions I had a relationship in Columbia for two years like my boyfriend. And we're in a serious relationship not engaged INNOC- relationship and when these opportunities open for me as I mean by I ever buy everything I had my mom and my sisters by my side he understood. Of course he was not gonna ask me to stay. I was not going to ask him to come with me because he had. He's career there so in those terms everybody was good. You know sometimes when you see those big opportunities come to you you have to say yes. You have to to leave all the fears behind. Nc This is mine is just hopping recent. And I have to take it. What is the most difficult story? You have ever covered so many but I think for what it meant to me us. A woman as a Hispanic Black Hispanic and as a mother when I interview Chris Marker that game When we're talking about what was going on with the KKK. There were no covering the phrases anymore. No no wearing the the garments and and the hoods they were free to insult and free to attack. That's the way that we're feeling empowered by the highest position of the government. How sad I wanted to cover this only reason. I you sure so yes I WANNA look at hate face to face and ask him. Why does he hate us? What how done to deserve this

Brussel sprouts lover. Not Everybody is Kathy. But that you're so true to win over the hearts of the hater I am and based on the cafeteria at here now and all the various the people that came through there is no middle ground. You either love them or you hate them. Although I did get a convert today Had A bad rep for a long time. Why why well people that grew up eating them steamed? That's nasty for the most part. Okay I will I mean the smell they get mushy. The thing is that they have this incredible texture and if you used a variety of different cooking methods other than steaming you can really change people's minds about how delicious as they are or have these recipes. You have outdone yourself. I mean these are amazing start with is a scallop dish here okay. Well I thought I want to start art. Something mild and dare I say delicate. That's not a word that often comes to mind when you think about Brussels sprouts so I very very thinly sliced them. You could would shave them on a mandolin at one but the key is thin and I saw them in some olive oil and I added some chives and scallions. Then then I took some beautiful fall scallops. You know by the way I call them scallops but just what did I say. Thanks Jeremy I have permission. I sauteed the what scallops until Golden Brown had a tiny bit of heavy cream to the sauteed saw. Brussels sprouts plop those gorgeous sauteed scallops on top. And you have what I think would be a gorgeous. I Course for Thanksgiving or Tuesday night thinner. I mean it's amazing teen minutes sweet and really. It's a way to introduce Brussel sprouts where they don't feel heavy and dense. I have to say this scissor salad with Brussels sprouts is incredible. So that is my version of a Caesar Salad marrying a slaw shave. Give them again. Marriage a mixed marriage. Yes very thinly Brussels sprouts and they stay raw and then what you do. is you massage them. I'm with a bit of salt. Which breaks them down and softens them? And then you make this very beautiful quick dressing in a blender with anchovies and egg Yolk Lemon oil sort of a classic Caesar Dressing Mix. It was shavings of Parmesan. You take a wide vegetable peeler and peel off a block of Parmesan shaved. Parmesan is always. Elizabeth knocks it out of the Party and then I made little croutons and criss cross an anchovy on top and it's pretty terrific and it's rob but after a while with the addressing on the salt it's not you don't get that stinging where I just wanted to tell you really quickly because I was blown away. It turns out that Brussels sprouts are named after Brussels in Belgium because because it is said that that's where they were first widely cultivated in the sixteenth century. That's why it's Brussels exactly and it's always capital. Be Okay because the name of the place Brussels Russell always the fear of you can say can't spell Brussels sprouts are they good for you say and the answer is I have been cooking these for about a week. I feel absolutely terrific. I mean loaded. I'm serious. They're loaded with fiber a lot of vitamin C. A really low in calories They also have mega three fatty acids. So you can't go wrong okay. Let's talk talk about this last dish. Okay so you each have very sweet actually well gender yours art so these are whole roasted Brussels sprouts if you want to convert somebody roast a Brussels sprouts and then put would you put on.

"You are. I'm Jeremy Hobson. I'm Robin Young. It's here and now and House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam. Schiff now says the first public hearings in the impeachment inquiry. We'll be held next week. We are getting an increasing appreciation for just what took place during the course of the last year and the degree to which the president Enlisted whole departments of government in the illicit aim of trying to get Ukraine to dig up dirt on Political Michael Opponent. Meanwhile we are digging into last night's election results from Virginia and Kentucky our political strategist joins us now. Adrian elrod Democratic Strategist Hadrian. Dan Hi and John Bray Bender Republican strategists. Hi John Hello Okay. So let's start with impeachment inquiry and the public hearings as we said. We'll start next week. With with William Taylor career diplomat and the acting ambassador to Ukraine who notably texted ambassador. Gordon Sunland I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with the political cool campaign. Adrian will this be a turning point. I think it's going to be a turning point in part because we're going to start seeing the hearings and the depositions that have been taking place behind the scenes and private public. We already see at this point. A majority of Americans support impeaching the president and removing him from office office. I think that number is probably going to increase. Once you actually see more and more people come in and testify in public in a broadcast televised setting long. John do you agree and do you think that. Republicans who so far have said that they don't want to impeach and remove. The president from office will be persuaded by public hearings. Well well I think first of all how nice is that. We're finally having public hearings. After the Democrats decided that they were Gonna do everything in a closed room where nobody could see in fact. I'm sure sure that the reason we're doing public hearings because there was a poll out last week where half of American said that. They thought that the way the Democrats were running. This was this disgraceful and so the Democrats Kratz had to change Second of all I think most Americans actually are looking this as again politics as usual and I think the way you know. That is the the poll all this morning in the political morning. Consult Paul Paul. Were the majority of Americans. I think it was fifty. Six percent said that they expect president trump to be we re elected so that doesn't one into reelected just that they expect him to be really. They expect them to be reelected but I think if they thought that this matter was what the Democrats thought it was rising up to. I don't know how that survey would have come across that way. What we do know? Is that the president made it very clear that he was not going to give money Until corruption was cleaned up in Ukraine and the Democrats on their multiple attempts to find something to impeach president now is hanging on this and I think that the American people are just getting tired of all this type of politics and not seen anything happen out of this congress and so You Know I. It's GONNA interesting. Where the American people going this? I think it's certainly a liability for the Democrats in a big risk for them as well. where's everybody going this? I mean John as you well know. There are closed door hearings frequently frequently before there are open hearing so that witnesses don't get to hear each other's testimony that is going to happen but I'm wondering if it even matters because we're hearing that Republicans are huddling to changed their defense from nothing happened on this phone call to reacting to the overwhelming evidence that something did happen on this phone call and saying it's not impeachable yesterday. Yesterday we had Major News Gordon Sunland Ambassador to the U.. Changed his testimony. He now says he recalls telling the Ukrainian official that he presumed there was a quid pro broke quo that US military aid was being held up in exchange for Ukraine announcing investigations. He didn't know who was behind this this morning. Kellyanne Conway dismissed it. Let's listen as far as I could see. Ambassador.

"Bucks coming up tomorrow at six oh, six NewsRadio WFL. And according to media accounts, governor Northam had a staff meeting tonight at eight o'clock, there's been no reporting the past three or four hours as to what happened staff meeting. He says, quote, I'm not the person in the photo that caused a stir quote, that's not me. And that photo that didn't stop Democrats say make any difference. You've been charged with racism that is tantamount to conviction. You have to leave even though you weren't racist. You still have to leave, you know, nineteen Eighty-four. The head of the Democrats in the United States Senate was a member previous member of the Ku Klux Klan, Robert KKK bird. The Democrats picked him to be there. Senate leader at the same time north him appeared not in a Ku Klux Klan outfit, which the last three days. No one's come up with any facts indicate one of those two guys is him. Because north is about six foot three. And those guys are about six foot five foot ten clearly it's not him in the photo. So then why should he step down because he imitated Michael Jackson moonwalking nineteen Eighty-four? Are you kidding me? And if that is so bad. What at one of the Democrats go after the Democrats who selected a member of the Ku Klux Klan, an actual member of the clan and actual member of the clan derby there late in the United States Senate, Robert K, K K K bird. See the stupidity of this despite his protestations. That's not me practically every big time democrat has called for his resignation. Even though he says, he's not guilty. First of all, I would have picked a less speed to be the governor and not north in the first place. But is it worse to be a member of the clan as bird was or is it bad? Not to be in a photo wearing a Klan outfit because that's north and says, that's not me. If one is bad how much worse than being actual member of the Ku Klux Klan, which Democrats or the founders of the clan. The Democrats were the clan. The Democrats March in Washington in the nineteen thirties in Klan outfits, the democratic member of the clan. Robert Byrd was picked by the Democrats to run the Senate at the same time that Ralph Northam was only a medical student twenty five years old Robert KKK bird was in his sixties. How's it possible? The media doesn't make that connection to the democrat party. And has anyone made a study to save for a black folk the worst place for you to live is in a black congressional district by every objective measurement? If you had the money, would you send your kids just Chicago public schools? My producer dangling says yes, I would do that. I don't think anybody else would. I know how lousy the Cincinnati public schools are. I assume the New York public schools are terrible. But they're all Democrats. No one does that work the highest crime areas in our country controlled by Democrats, the highest taxes are controlled by Democrats. So does the media make any of these connections to the failure of so many poor Americans or the Democratic Party? Absolutely not because the media is a megaphone of the democrat party. We're not going to criticize one of our own. So when governor Rick Scott, well, I thought did a great job this morning with meet the press. He went on and talked about the fact that the Senate is completely dysfunctional. He says the senators would rather make political points than solve the nation's problems. He said there's too much hatred on Capitol Hill toward the president quote. There's so much hatred up there right now people are not working together. We got. Stop. And let's act in the interest of the American public. What an awful suggestion. Said he wants a big deal. That includes the deamer the dreamers and TPS and all the rest make sense, right? Scott went there with the best of intentions. He's a good, man. I've had him on a few times. Did a good job is the governor of my second. Adopt. A state of Florida wonderful. So he's caught into the swamp. It's impossible for me to conclude that at any point in the next week or two that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. We'll put on the president's desk a Bill that he can sign and be ready to stand behind him in the rose garden and tell the American people Democrats and Republicans have worked together to solve the immigration problem that will never ever happen impossible. And the media will put that out to you. It will not happen. What they want is for the president to use an executive order declaring a national emergency. They've already got the federal judge picked out in San Francisco doing join it, and it will take one to two years get up to the Supremes. But then the election will be ongoing. They're gonna think they're gonna elect a democratic president. He will then resend the executive order legal immigrants keep flooding over the border with rebel and aids and polio and hepatitis and tuberculosis and malaria, syphilis and gonorrhea pirate diarrhea and a bunch of others. That that's what's happening in the sanctuary cities. Headline in the Los Angeles Times today LA is dealing with the deadly flea-born.

And you need fear not else meaning nothing else. Ben franklin. So that's the that's what Stewart was talking about. And I got a little bit off the track. Because what we're what we're really talking about. Here is a Senator from California who in an and it's worked. I mean you've seen here in Massachusetts. A a Presley defeated a longtime liberal progressive member congress Mike cap wanna when I think that the Democratic Party is going to move even more dramatically towards the left. Now, maybe that's the road to success for them. I don't know. What do you think? Six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty going to go to Mike in Fitchburg. Mike, you're next on the ringcentral nightside. Call. So when word for you. Everybody's look up for the search for the history of the KKK or Democratic Party play in L A and B A K E what that is is that the democrat directly on. By the nineteen twenty four. Or something like that. They were like marching in the streets and. Control that particular laws that. Covet about comparing to the KKK is truly in the maybe I'm just saying that the other callers have already said before. That these people are doing their jobs to enforce the laws of the US and. Its bias somehow. In the wrong way change. You're you're absolutely. You're absolutely right, Mike. But again, you have folks in the Democratic Party, including Kamala Harrison, there are others. I mean, certainly our senior Senator from Massachusetts they feel that the way to win their nomination. Twenty twenty is to just go to the most extreme edge of the party and work backwards. And when you have people in that in that party talking about getting rid of ice immigration customs enforcement. What does that mean other than we just want to open up the borders and? And we will we will no longer make a distinction between legal immigration and illegal immigration in that India playing to people who don't know any better who think oh, it's a great idea to open up the borders. And I'm telling you it's dangerous. We we we appalling apart is a country. I talked about it last night with pulling apart as a country, and there's no longer a big middle here. And and that's going to be a huge problem. Partisanship is basically how we wound up Donald Trump as president. Because just just got worse. Because like you say, the Democrats cannot accept that. Somehow. Poll somehow, they lost the election. And if they keep this up, we're just going to see more of this. Well, the next be a democratic president again in our lifetime. Look a hundred years ago. President United States was Woodrow Wilson, and he was an avowed racist. If democratic president and avowed racist. And and and this party better recognize that, hey, there's a heritage within this party. That's what this guy was referring to referred to as Neil. No. I don't think that's fair. I think the Democratic Party has moved in the right direction. But at the same time to turn around and try to make the point that a large force been agency in this country is the equivalent or anything closely the equivalent of the KKK that's dangerous dangerous rhetoric. Yes. Yes. Senator needs to look up the history of alone. Again, you'll be the KKK actually controlled the convention. New York City making twenty four. No, I believe you. I believe you're absolutely right in in nineteen twenty four Mike Lynch. We'll talk soon. Okay. Thank you very much. Appreciate your call six one seven two thousand four hundred thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty. So far, no one has wanted to defend the analogy that Kamala Harris was engaging in we're going to talk a little bit later on tonight about an effort by the American Civil Liberties union in Boston to force the Boston police department to provide information on their strategy and their surveillance of potential gang members in Boston. Now here we have mayor walls, who's a leader of the Democratic Party and a pretty liberal mayor good friend of mine. Good guy. We disagree on issues believes, I think in at least a limited form of sanctuary cities. And now, you have the ACLU basically wanting to know information about the Boston police department strategy and surveillance. There are these initiatives that I think are extraordinarily dangerous. I'd love to hear what you think of that as well. In the meantime. Let me get Patty in the phone. Patty. Welcome. You're next on the ringcentral nightside caller line. How are you tonight? Patty. We know that I don't spend a lot of money on cable TV. Listening to radio I read, but I did see on ESPN. Okay. Harris. I see. Portion that you talk about but I did see disrespect the homeland security. And. Disrespect to other senators. Yeah. Well, again, I think that's where we're headed as a country, and there was a period in time in this country. We could agree to get disagreed this. We try to do on this show. I think that we're we're sliding down in the wrong direction. And I think that this sort of rhetoric, and obviously she's using Kamala Harris was using a Senate hearing to basically burnish her credentials if you will to polish her credentials with the with the most extreme elements of her party. And I don't know how you come back from that. But if the Democrats the Democrats have an interesting dilemma at this point, how did they defeat Donald Trump? And how do they hold onto the leads that they had the the the advantages that they have now picked up in congress. They had they had a very good election in terms of the house of representatives, not so much. So on the Senate side, but the people who came in with very left wing radical. There's a combination you have some left wing radical Democrats like we have in ocasio Cortez out of New York. And then there are some other Democrats who who beat moderate Republicans by being monitored Democrats, and it's gonna be fascinating to see how this plays out after thanksgiving with the Nancy Pelosi speakership election as well. Am I incorrect that she has likened people who disagree with her to Nazis? I have not heard her say that if you wanna cited for me, I I. I think someone once said to me, and I think they're wise whenever you try to engage in an argument with someone politically and you accuse them of being a Nazi or a member of the KKK, you probably in the process of losing the argument. It. It's I look in the south and new someone who claimed to know someone from the KKK. My fear is if we don't learn from history, it will repeat it. Absolutely, absolutely. And I'm sure there is still some folks down there every once in a while you hear about stories about racist. Graffiti, you'll hear about. Events incidents at schools tough. It's those those things shouldn't happen. Do they happen? Yes. Does this sort of language and this rhetoric from Kamala Harris increase the chances that some nut job is going to say something? That's that's absolutely inappropriate. Yeah. I think it does. And I think it debases what should be the level of discourse. In the United States Senate. And take down all the monuments different things. Remind us about history, we're headed down a band. I don't know. I appreciate your your last night asking people to talk to people on both sides of the aisle. Yup. I think we should do that this thanksgiving. We have to Patty appreciate the by by six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty again, Kamala, Harris, I'll play this for those of you when I get back who haven't heard it, basically seem to suggest draw a parallel, whatever you wanna call it. She was a little cute with the way she described it between ice immigration customs, enforcements enforcement, and the KKK she's a leading democratic United States Senator only in her first term, but she's very smart. Former attorney general in the state of California, and she will I believe be one of those who are competing for the democratic presidential nomination. And I think what she did yesterday is dangerous. It's rhetoric that we should stay away from at the same time. It does expose to me what she's all about. I want to hear from you.
