"Making Juneteenth a federal holiday Commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. Just in time for Saturdays. June 19th ANNIVERSARY As the day African Americans have celebrated yearly since the civil War era and the combination of decades long effort by advocates. They get national recognition for the moment as development in American history. A jubilant vice president Kamala Harris, the nation's first black vice president, who co sponsored the legislation when she served in the Senate, spoke about the significance of the occasion, noting slaves helped build the White House. But history, Juneteenth has been known by many names. Jubilee Day Freedom Day.

"Here's the deal. I'm looking through it. I'm not finding it. I mean, there's 50 years of it for the love of group. I'm looking for any legislation that Joe Biden is pushed forward. Any legislation that Kamala Harris had authored sponsored brought to the floor of the Senate. Uh, maybe even try to get California to recognize it while she was in California as a as a holiday. No, nothing. No, no. Nope. Can't still can't find anything But, man, Aren't they doing a victory lap? It is all because of the leadership of Joe Biden. It is all because of them when? When Historically, they've done just the opposite matter of fact. Commonly, Harrison's family did just the opposite as slave owners. So that gets brushed under the rug often and I'll keep reminding you of it when when they tell you that you're racist because you have some sort of white lineage or you are white. And I'll remind you as common letters is telling you that her family and this documented s cadet. That she was. She is the descendant of slave owners. And it's so disingenuous to someone like Kamala Harris, who built her career standing on the shoulders of incarcerated black men and women, and Joe Biden, who was Pretty darn good at setting the laws to to put them in that position for them to lecture us on how great it is that they have signed into law Juneteenth as a holiday, and I don't This is the thing that just drives me so nuts about how obvious this is how obvious the Democrats use symbolism to try to keep black people in particular voting for them. Don't even go back, and I've said this before on the show, said Pardon me repeating again because it's not said enough in the public light that Lyndon Johnson as president when signing the Civil Rights Act, said, I will have those n word. That's what he said. He said the word voting Democrat for 60 years That's what he thought of black people then, but he signed the law knowing it was a political strategy. That is what we're seeing today. Great June. 19th is a holiday Juneteenth as it's known. And they're calling it Juneteenth National Independent State because when we have Independence Day on July 4th 17 76 when America declared its break from the United Kingdom, Britain back then. The most of the people who are of African descent in this country. We're not free so they didn't have an independence day. So don't have a problem with it being called that either correct. What I do have a problem with it is what Mike just said. Them the Democrats trying to rub our face in it. Well, they've had 60 70 years to do something about this, but they have it because they noticed something. In the last election. They noticed that Support for Democrats amongst African Americans in this country slipped for the first time in a while to the guy they labeled a racist for four years, so they know that they have to overdo the symbolism. That's why they're constantly talking to you about slavery. That's why Vice President Comma, President elect Kamala Harris said this today we must learn From our history. And we must teach our Children. Our history because it is part of our history. As a nation. It is part of American history, but they're acting like Mike. We were not taught. American history that had to do with slavery. I remember specifically 7th and 8th grade learning about slavery. I remember in eighth grade watching Alex Haley's roots in being completely disgusted that this country that I love has that as its history, So it's not as if we haven't taught the idea of slavery and what it was like to be a slave in America. This is just nonsense that they're uttering. We know the history because we're taught this I think the biggest image that comes into my mind it was with being taught civil rights movement. And I remember the image. It was the time I was time magazine image of it was the drinking fountain image, and I was just blown away that I remember. I remember distinctly staring at that picture for a very long time. Just trying to wrap my head around at that young age what I was looking at and how this made any sense. And since then, and you know, maybe it's the maybe Maybe it's the first black president or or the like, or you look around and you're like, Wow, look at all these icons and businesses. These these Americans of African descent. These these just icons, he's powerhouses everywhere you look and people of success, and I think back to that picture all the time. And I just think, yes. This country gets it. This country grew. This country evolved. This country made what that made it What it should be. I'm sorry what? It should have been back then. And then it's becoming, I think far greater than we ever expected it to be when it comes to race relations, and I gotta tell you I I see this pandering. I see my nose getting rubbed in it. And it is exactly what we thought it was going to be for the first five months of the Biden presidency, and that is a complete on slut. Of of racial issues. They're not letting us forget about making sure we keep making sure we have our moment to apologize for some reason. Apologize. For what? They're not specific about any single thing. All they say is slavery. America 16 19. They don't say anything about how it applies. They say it still impacts us to this day. All that is is a statement. They never back it up with anything. They never even get into policing an American how it really works because they don't know the actual facts. They just know that the talking points work well on Twitter. Because Twitter has become so generic and social media has become so generic. You don't have to back up your arguments with facts anymore. In fact, I was reading a book recently in the book they talked about. They had this conference. I think at Boston University or something like that. It was about race relations, and one of the speakers who was advocating for you know things like Juneteenth to be a holiday, which again I fully support. This being a holiday have no problem with that whatsoever..

Fresh update on "kamala harris" discussed on Jimmy Barrett
"9 50. Alright, the governor announcing this week we'll build our own. Border wall, he says. He's got $250 million with the seed money for that. That's that's pretty good little seed money. Guess as for engineering and all the other things that go along with doing all that. I guess the question is And you're going to get a lot of cheers when you make an announcement like that, because the federal government has let us down in a big way. Now that we we have a liberal administration. That's not going to change. Heck. You can't even get Kamala Harris to come to the border to take a look. See, Not that I not that I personally care that you doesn't want to come to the border. What would she do anyway? She wouldn't do anything other than make us angry. So what is what is the practical practical application here about trying to as a state? Build your own border wall? Chuck DeVore joins US Texas Public Policy Foundation. Something tells me it's not quite as easy as it sounds. You're right. It's not as easy as it sounds. First of all, I think it's important to understand that any sort of a barrier Needs to work with personnel. And ideally, those would be federal Border Patrol agents allowed to do their job, right. And right now, the Biden Harris administration is not letting the Border Patrol do its job. Secondarily. Of course, you could have state assets. The Department of Public Safety Texas Rangers, Texas National Guard, local law enforcement sheriff's deputies, etcetera. So in places where you have a wall that is going to serve to protect Texans, lives and property in the vicinity of the wall. Kind of like a gated community, right. It's going to it's going to steer traffic around the wall. And the question is, once you get around the wall where you're going to go, what's going to greet you? Is it going to be nobody? Is it going to be a Border Patrol agent essentially saying, Welcome to America. Let's help you get to the interior as quickly as possible. We haven't solved that part yet. Okay, So So where do you build the wall? Now? It sounds like what the governor is saying is that he wants to pick up where the Trump administration left off. But I'm assuming that that is sitting on federal land correct. Well, no it it's not necessarily federal land. It would be mostly private land where the federal government has obtained in easement, or perhaps has purchased the land. And, of course, in either case, an easement in which case the land still is owned by the private property owner or where the federal government has acquired the land. In both cases, of course you're right. The federal government Controls that property, at least for now. But there are plenty of other sections of the border where border wall was not yet constructed and where there may. In fact, the federal uses easements, but there may be areas where The private property owner would be willing to allow barriers to be constructed in any construction of the barrier. Additional barrier along the border improves the ability of law enforcement and Border Patrol to do their job. Again. The key problem is This administration is not letting the Border patrol do its job. And so you know, the additional wall will be useful. I think even more useful will be the lawsuit against it. You've already seen LULAC a Hispanic civil rights group here in Texas threatened to sue. I'm guessing the you and other groups will sue as well. Maybe even the Biden administration will sue and I think that would be very useful. Because the case of Arizona versus US from nine years ago, which was a 5 to 3 decision that said that Arizona can't enforce its own law that says employers that employ illegal labor have to pay a fine well that was struck on a 5 to 3 decisions. Here's the interesting thing. Two of those five jurors are gone, and they've been replaced by justice Kavanaugh and Justice Spirit. Uh, so you know, arguably, you'd have a 54 decision the other way. Maybe even 6 to 3, depending on what the chief justice does. In terms of Texas's own actions. Okay, lets The Supreme Court. Let's see. How long would it take for a case to get to the Supreme Court? I mean, that's a long process, Is it not? It usually is, But not always. It depends on the urgency of the case and how expedited things become. So, you know, I suppose it's even more important in the interim is once the construction starts. Is Texas going to be enjoined from further building the wall or are they going to be allowed to proceed as it as it moves up the court system? So that's one big thing. And the other huge thing is, What is tax is going to do with any border crossers that it decides to apprehend. The governor has talked about finding number, arresting them for criminal trespass. The challenge. There, of course, is as soon as you arrest someone. They get to have a legal defense. And that is costly. Where do you put them? Do you just cite them and let them go? In which case? At least we get fingerprints. At least we get maybe a photograph, perhaps a DNA test. Which is, by the way, more than the Border Patrol is able to do in many instances now because the border so overwhelmed, they're not even able to do that regularly as they used to. Okay, Um, And then, Of course, if you do decide to arrest them and incarcerate them, where are you going to create enough space in order to be able to do that? Not that I expect that that would be the case. Um It. Does this estate I can't imagine they do. But with the state have any ability to escort these people back to the border and Force them to the other side. We'll see. That is the $64,000 question right there. Many legal analysts believe that the state does have that inherent authority..

"All at the same time. It's you know it's difficult. Because i don't wanna down play the joy of this moment. Enslaved people were rejoicing and rightly so and this is a moment. I think that we can celebrate but the reality. The historical reality is that also that within months certain years of the end of the civil war. Racial violence is exploding. All over the country. We have racial massacres. that are taking place. Union troops have to be kept in place. In order to keep out the clan and white supremacists that are trying to target black communities. That are trying to educate themselves and build their churches and build their schools and build their communities. And so in a lotta ways. The freedom of black people especially the success of people has made them a target. And i think we see this so clearly like tulsa. We just celebrated the hundredth anniversary of Tulsa and one of the things that was so remarkable about this place was that its its success made it a target of the clan and so one of the things aren't just black wall street in tulsa wall street wall street in tulsa oklahoma And i think that you know one of the things that i'm constantly to recommend. Is that as black people. Strive for us as we strive to improve ourselves to assert our humanity that that is constantly going to be met with a racial backlash and we are still experiencing that racial backlash today. We've seen it with the election of barack obama. You see with the election of Even joe biden and kamala harris We see this every single time. Black people excel.

While visiting with the president of Guatemala Vice President Kamala Harris had a message for Central Americans considering making the trek to the U. S. Do not come. Do not come. Harris adamantly discouraged illegal immigration and insisted the U. S will enforce laws and secure the border amid a continued search, and I believe If you come to our border, you will be turned back. So let's discouraged.

Speaking from Guatemala City today, Harris said she and Guatemalan President Alejandro Geometry talked about a key issue Corruption on the issue of corruption. Uh, the conversation that I had with President Janet Today was very Frank. And very candid, and I think this is a quality that he and I appreciate in each other. Following all of this is Adrianna Beltran with the watchdog group, The Washington office on Latin America. She said Harris is right to focus on corruption. And unfortunately, over the last several years, what you've seen across the region, including Guatemala has been a backlash against anti corruption, anti impunity efforts and increasingly actions by corrupt elites to undermine democracy and the rule of law. So as long as we're on the subject, explain in simple terms how corruption actually reduces the impact of USA to Central America. When we talk about corruption in Guatemala in Central America, we're not talking about a few bad apples, a few corrupt government officials that accept bribes But what we're talking about is systems that have been put in place where corrupt elites and in the case of Guatemala, increasingly tied to criminal groups have taken hold the government institutions And have used their positions of power to enrich themselves by embezzling millions of public funds at the expense of the majority of the population.

Not only to help rainbow sign come into existence but also to have a place where iran dellums or shirley chisolm could come and talk to their constituents so it wasn't all one one sided if that makes sense rainbow needed them. They need it rain beside miss daisy woods. Jones who you heard from earlier use rainbow sign for political organizing to. It was here that she in a small group of other women founded that organization. We talked about proper black women organized for political action stabbing out of twelve women who were mondello for his initial wrongful. Congress decided that we wanted to create an ongoing a place where we could have african. American women engaged in the political process to be a voice at the table. And when we call the meeting at the rainbow sintus saying african american women who are interested in being engaged in the political process. Join us on. We expected thirty. Thirty five forty people and the result of that was I bet you assume hundred fifty three hundred women who showed up. We didn't know quite what to do that. Many women but it showed again what that place meant. It was the place to be. So what happened to this hub of artistic and intellectual and political energy. And how did it shape a young comma harris. That's after the break. Stay with us. What i to serlin woods and nigel poor. We make a podcast call ear hustling. You're hustle brings you the stories of inside prison and life after prison always told from the perspective of those who live it or six season just kicked off. You can listen for free and ear. Hustle s q dot com. Or wherever you get your podcast. You're taking him responsible for taking my way for migrants would if the people who are supposed to be committed to your children's safety are actually doing more harm than good do no harm from nbc news and wondering pulls back the curtain on a system so committed to protecting children that it can tear families apart in this week's episode. Melissa and dylan bright believe child. Protective services has moved on from their case and they try to do the same but when a cps worker comes to their door it's the beginning of the hardest of their lives. Much as i love that child who wasn't a hug in the world. That was going to make what was about to happen not happen. I want her to hug me. Not like go for the rest of eternity because i don't know when on hooker again search for do no harm wherever you're listening right now and subscribe we're back i'm sure mainly and this is into america and today we're going back in time through the doors place called rainbow sign a black cultural centre in berkeley california. A place that made an indelible impression on a little girl who go on to become vice. President elect calmly harris but like so many good things. Its existence short-lived rainbow sign opened. Its doors in one thousand nine hundred seventy one but just six years later it was gone. It's founders weren't able to raise the funds to buy that building on grove and the rent was just too high. But for people like desi woods jones the rainbow sign transcended that brief window of time. I asked her about that. And i wonder if the rainbow sign in its biggest idea would have meant was always more than just what was happening in the east bay. Oh i think so nothing. So many things thoroughly giving the rainbow. Cy shannon was really the genesis for a lot of other movements that sort of spurred up throughout the nation because again it was a comfortable place. It was a place where african americans knew that they had some control. Lashio leaders of state need is regionally. Came out of that place and of course are now beautiful. Young vice president-elect being kamla harris hey olive that exposure so there it is the rainbow sign then come harris. Now it's kind of amazing to realize the connections in fact the vice president elect is actually a member of disease organization. Dizzy has known her for years. I guess what i. I remember meeting calmly. She was probably at her twenties and she was activists in full but she. Her parents were part of that activism community in that energy. So been exposed to that. It'll it has to have a impact on who you become and how you live our vp. Kumble harris speak so fondly about the rainbow sign and is written in her memoir Just how it shaped terror as the young person with her mother and her sister and the warmth that she felt there. And i wonder when you see kamla harris now whether it's making her victory speech the first black woman. Vp right if you see a reflection of the rainbow sign.
"kamala harris" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"Are small businesses. We have to have a plan in the tales matter I would love to start at the beginning of the journey go. It's interesting being Kamala Harris because according to trump you all crazier than Bernie, the Mosul socialist person in the world, and then according to some people you are not progressive enough who are you to you? Like if you introducing Kamala Harris to people. Who is commonly Harris and what are you going to represent when you get into that office? Let me tell you I am the child of parents who fought for civil rights. I. Am the daughter of a mother who arrived in the United States at the age of nineteen. And believed that she and her children could do anything and that we should never hear. No. And and so these are some of the things that have fueled my ambition to fight for equality to fight for justice to fight for fairness, and when I think about the prospect of being the vice president of the United States, those will be my values and my goals informed by the values that are about understanding the need to to fight for the dignity. Of all people fighting for working families fighting for the vulnerable and the voiceless among us these. These are the things that propel me the things that propel me are to fix these problems in a way that we understand the people behind the issues and not just engaging grand gestures but engage in what is actually necessary to address the needs of the people. You know and yeah, the the these people I mean I don't pay attention to the name calling trevor there some of us who have lived a lifetime of being called names and it is predictable and it is childish and it will not distract me. Go Away because when we come back, we'll have more of my conversation with Kamala Harris including why her name is so easy it's so difficult to pronounce..
"kamala harris" Discussed on The Cave of Time
"That's one of the reasons that I was saying that Kamala could be a boon to that vote so like you said. Joe Biden is already connected to Obama. So there's already that kind of like mild influence to get out and vote for you know Obama's Bro but then having an actual whether or not you think she's black having an actual black candidate on the ticket to is just that much more. Yes I see where you're coming from but I don't think I don't think the turnout is going to be there I don't think the youth vote is going to be there. And here's. Where I was going to before it's a trap for Donald Trump because. As you said there's a weakness for Kamala. Where in the primaries we saw this progressives didn't like really believe or they SARS duplicitous as we've been saying, they saw her as this kind of law and order candidate. She's put like a lot of people away. She's she's not appealing to as far as record is concerned, not very appealing to what we would think the blackout would be appealing to now donald trump could attack her in that weak point. But that whole realm is a weak point for Donald Trump Joe Biden. On, Joe Biden opened up his campaign literally the first thing he released from his campaign was attaching himself to the Charlottesville protest where white supremacy. This is how it was framed white supremacists rallied and they targeted this anti-racist protester and ran her over with a car. Buying kicked off his campaign centric himself as the Anti Racist Anti White Supremacist candidate and This is electing a black female specifically Kamala Harris is just centering it on race that much more, and this is losing ground for Donald Trump period. No matter how you slice it is losing ground for Donald. Trump if donald trump does go after the weak spot that you pointed out, it's just Going to take himself into a battlefield where he loses. And so. Recently very recently it seems he's going in eight then yeah. Yes. He just did a tweet.
"kamala harris" Discussed on The Cave of Time
"All right. Well, her his history is a prosecutor that was kind of a big a big story when she was running in the primaries for the Democratic nominee for president few ran it. We didn't mention that she ran against Joe Biden in the. Primary elections. So or history is a prosecutor. Is Unlike. Many Democrats and certainly not what the progressive left would like to see in a candidate. She pursued parents of children who were truant from school would put them in jail. So kids kids who were late or absent from school, she would legally pursue with the parents and potentially put them in prison. She resisted. Resisted an order to ease California's prison overcrowding by releasing prisoners, which is something that would be popular among a lot of the Democrat constituents opposed marijuana legalization in two, thousand, Ten and two, thousand twelve, but she since changed. Position on that since she famously told I believe it was hot ninety, seven and Charlemagne. The God that she was smoking weed in college while listening to to park and Torres Bi and snoop doggy Dogg Yup before they hit even became musical artists. Went to school. So I do look us up. She went to school law school in Nineteen eighty-nine and snoop dogg's for seldom nine, hundred, eighty three. So this is not her undergrad that you do for three or four years. This is her post Grad for one or two years, but she would have graduated by the time snoop Dogg came out A blatant lie it's blatant fucking lie. Well, it's possible. She misremembered. You know. Maybe it was when she was working those late nights she had actually. This was one year before the album came out one year before she got that job. So she was actually probably sleeping with Willie Brown smoking joins But this is this is one of many straws on the camel's back for Kamala Harris is the genuineness but going further on her history as a prosecutor, she aggressively prosecuted a lot of misdemeanors she didn't support the banning of the death penalty she she basically supported the death penalty. Her reason for all this that she says now is that she was working to change the system from inside and that she couldn't always go with her instincts. Her client was the state of California and that's what she was trying to serve. So it wasn't her acting as herself. It was more just her acting as a lawyer on behalf of the State of There's also like she was again statewide body camera Weyermann's. She refused to respond for victims that we're abused. By Catholic clergy. She supported bills that support seizing assets for forfeiture. She fought against releasing nonviolent offenders so that they could be used to find wildfires in California. Did, you have other stuff wanted to go through or am I just step on Tokyo history as a prosecutor not I'd gone through my. Big Balloons. So she she got in trouble for like fighting, allow false testimony in which which put somebody in jail for a double homicide when they were actually innocent and then DNA, evidence came out the. Thinks she was like a big proponent of like three strike law that. Would somebody in jail for the rest of their life even when they were had like to police witnesses say they were free And then most recently I think she got in trouble for..

"kamala harris" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"The first conversation between Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the Democratic nominee offered the California senator the running mate slot on his ticket. We'll discuss that today plus. How are the Republicans and the trump campaign dealing with the Harris pick how they framing the argument against her And finally, their first public event. What does the Biden Harris Ticket look like? Hello everyone. David Chalian the CNN, political director this is the daily DC. So the history is clear Kamala. Harris is a barrier breaker in terms of being the first black woman the first Indian American woman on the ticket for a major party's presidential nomination team. It isn't just historic because of her race or gender though it is that, but it is an American story as Harris will tell you I went back to listen to her very first day on the presidential campaign trail in twenty nineteen when she launched her presidential campaign and she was asked at her first press conference do identify as African American do identify Indian American and her answer was identify as an American. And it is that quintessential American story being the daughter of immigrants that is going to be woven into all of her high profile moments. In this campaign, a vice presidential running mate has three major moments in the public eye. If all goes well, sometimes they can have more if it doesn't go well. The rollout which we are now a day into and so far seems to be a pretty successful one. We'll see as the days ahead emerge with more and more scrutiny for her. You have the convention speech that's coming next Wednesday night so In preparation mode for that, and then you have the debate that you'll have with Mike Pence in October those are the moments and in those moments, Kamala Harris will no doubt tell her deeply American story and one other thing? Kamala Harris is going to have to figure out as how to best be deployed in the covert era of a campaign normally a high profile surrogate. That's what the number two person is and you would go all over the country but with travel basically removed from the equation, no rallies how does the Biden team use Kamala Harris Day in and day out in a virtual campaign world to accomplish the electoral goals they want to accomplish. A couple of other things to watch with cholera Harris now on the ticket one, how is Donald. Trump and his campaign and the Republicans are they framing the argument around her again this is going to be a race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden we're talking a lot about Karma Harris in these hours after her announcement as the VP pick but four, the most part American voters are not going to really consider Mike Pence or Kamala Harris for Kamala. Harris to be probably the most expected pick Biden was going to make for five months of his process of deliberation the Republicans the president his campaign seems a little slow out of the gate settling on a frame it seemed A. Bit Scattershot, get the president using that derogatory term he loves to use for women specifically women of Color Nasty at his press conference yesterday that certainly doesn't seem like that's going to hold all that. Well, you had this notion of trying to call her phony Kamla that somehow because she ran against Joe Biden and now she's on the ticket. She's a phony, just a finger in the wind politician of course, George H W Bush was running against Ronald Reagan but he joined his ticket Joe Biden Against Barack. Obama. But he joined his ticket we've seen that time and again in American history. So I'm not sure that will hold. It seems today the Republicans are settling on Kamala Harris is. That is now the bucket they're using the throw all the Comma Harris oppo into this notion that's she's extreme and that she is GonNa Push. Joe. Biden too far left. I'm not sure that's going to work for them because she spent the bulk of her presidential campaign fending off criticism from the left. And finally, today the first time you see the presidential nominee with their vice presidential running mate. It's always a moment to note, take stock of take a look at the body language. The chemistry are they gelling together? Well, this first event between Biden and Harrison Wilmington. Delaware. Today, we'll be first clues into what this newly formed bond and relationship will look like however it's unlike any other before. It because of the covert era so even their first joint appearance is going to have to navigate social distance guidelines and other matters that may make assessing their chemistry, their body language together all that more difficult though it is certainly a sign of the Times of how this partnership is being formed in this totally unprecedented era of presidential politics give listen to the Biden Harris ticket in Wilmington today. By fellow Americans. Let me introduce to you. For the first time. Your next. Vice. President. United States. Kamala. Harris. Kamla. Floors Yours. As? I said Joe when you called me, I am incredibly honoured by this responsibility. And I'm ready to get to work. I am ready to get to work. That does it for today's edition of the daily DC. Thank you all so much for listening. See Tomorrow. We're all going through something different these days but we're all wondering the same thing. What's my next step? Northwestern mutual financial advisers can show you not only will they guide you through times like these they'll help you come out stronger. They'll listen to what's important to you and create the right financial plan to help you reach your goals for today, and the days ahead is no longer about the way things used to.

Over here on this format. So with that being said, just like to welcome everybody to the show, we appreciate it. We're just now getting this show up and running over here on podcast mode. Because we've been so busy. We've been trying to get the channel up on. facebook because there's so much to talk about and with this election being so important we've really been working hard to make sure that we get. Everything going away supposed to. And So I mean I I it's just been like nonstop recording and trying to make things happen. But the reason I wanted to jump on here, real quick and make a quick segment. Is Because of the new vice president. Pick. From Joe Biden who is none other than Kamala? Harris. And She is. About as far left I think is you'd WanNa go and SBN pretty much far right or at least Republicans over here. On a political analytical. This. Could this is a very bad thing and we really don't want to see her in Jalan Biden for that matter. But if y'all remember back in the day. In twenty, nineteen believe. When Biden was accused of rape by. Some women. She was very quick to say that she believes those women. And that she feels that Joe Biden did everything that those women said. That he did to to them. Now all of a sudden that she was picked for vice president. It seems like all that's gone away in. It's all. Okay. Now. Why is all that? Okay now, but it wasn't back then. this lady has no morals. She has no work ethics. She stands by none of her convictions. She is. A terrible woman. Who is being pup? It'd. By the big state. She's being puppet it by. The far left she's being puppet it by. ANTIFA. She's being puppet it by BLM. And she is nothing but a puppet on a string along with Biden. If these to get in, we're looking at the United States never ever. Being the same again. This is a terrible terrible woman. and has no business being vice president. Not to mention the fact that she's not qualified. She is not qualified to be the vice president of the United States sure. She's got law degrees and as a lawyer or Anything dealing with law enforcement. Yeah. She's pretty well equipped but to be vice president of the United States, she is not equipped. and. She has no training no schooling. She's got very limited time within. The Democratic Party she has very little time in any type of politics doesn't know how to handle anything that's happening and she's going to be a puppet. And I don't think any of us want to see the United States crumble. Because we have somebody that has no experience within the United States I mean, it's just. It's really mind boggling. And I hope and pray that everybody gets out and votes that supposed to. Because there's so much happening in so much bad going on that I'm honestly afraid. That it's going to get worse and it's going to get to the point where. Our taxes are going to be so high. We won't even be able to afford our own homes. We won't be able to afford to live not to mention how much taxes are going to be put on. All our checks. And she's also a Antigun. I guarantee you. If Biden, in her get in, they're going to do everything they can to abolish the second amendment. And our constitution little by little it's going to be shaved away and who knows what we're going to end up with. She's four. defunding the police. She referred to all the police officers as KKK. I mean, these are things that we really need to think about it's true Americans. Because if she takes over, it's going to be a very, very bad deal. Over here It says on Fox senator. Kamala Harris. who was officially announced as Joe Biden's running-mate Tuesday. Has Switched her stance on multiple issues throughout her time in public life beginning as a local prosecutor in the early two thousands. Those physicians are now back in the spotlight as the trump campaign tries to tag her as phony, which she is. This is one phony lady. And the newly named Democratic ticket prepares to present a united and consistent message. Going into next week's national. Convention. Now Chris Wallace says Kamala Harris doesn't do any harm to Biden's chances of. Winning the election. however, Harris change of heart covers issues like whether the government should abolish private health insurance. Whether recreational marijuana should be legalized in more such switches have invited criticism in the past from both the left and the right with Republicans labeling her as a radical. And members of more progressive wing of the Democratic Party accusing her of not being liberal enough. So they're gonNa Start Molding her pretty much to the way they want her. I mean it's you can tell that this is not a woman that Dick's by anything let it's going to benefit hurt. If sled say for instance. Let's say that she didn't want to abolish health insurance. She's GonNa say that she does now. Because that's what they wanted to say data going to be something that's going to help her. The heck. With all of us I mean we don't matter. We, have American citizens do not matter. what matters to her is her. And even.
"kamala harris" Discussed on Louder With Crowder
"They need to be guilted that need to be silent sit down shut up and listen they're browbeaten and then someone like, Kamala. Harris comes in and talks about how hard she has it when there is verifiable proof that she benefited from slavery and kind of like the low Jones Kamala Harris could use it both ways dye her hair blonde, your none, the wiser doing I don't. Bring that Lolo, Jones Olympics she was at the Biracial athlete and I just watched the recent documentary. She's like hair Brown. By racial now, shing there you go. There's Lolo Jones Olympics now let's look at Lolo Jones today. I don't know if we can find a picture of a little today she looks like she's picking up a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and my point is that's that's Oh Yeah. Totally. Different person. Her playboy. Side to that Coin Kamala Harris could do the same to use it. All right. Here's another issue. As a prosecutor, we're talking about black lives matter in the riots, the violent riots. She kept inmates jailed for longer to use them as cheap labour. She supported the death penalty, which may surprise people and she incarcerated over fifteen hundred people for marijuana offenses. So if we're talking about moving the needle forward for the heads who just WanNa get blitzed she too is not your candidate can you explain to this this to people who may not be up on the the nerdiness of the the prison sentences yeah. I mean, I think that the basic scenario there was that nonviolent offenders were supposed to be eligible for parole after serving half their sentence because if got crowded prisons CETERA and she wanted to keep him in to use for cheap labor. So essentially another. A. Another form of slavery. Right you. Might say yeah she's she's continuing the tradition goes to groups of people. I mean. What's interesting about that is that traditionally you're going to see at least even with trump you've seen a lot of attacks about him being the law and order president and right kind of you know doing not not that actually it was twenty as he even he doesn't do that. Right? Right you know he's not well, he did the was it the What was your name? Alice. Marie Johnson. and His his first step act was actually one of the first steps towards changing the laws on harsh sentences for nonviolent offenders. Right. But at that time, the laws were the laws the judges need to do. They need to do the only one who really had a lot of discretion. Certainly, judges had some with regards to evidence or you know sentencing, but it came down to the prosecutors. It came down to the district attorney for the city San Francisco and what they were doing and how they decided to not only bring cases but what sentences they were asking for..

And they said unverified well, do you think that would apply that same standard to someone else if it was, let's say Donald Trump's father wrote in two thousand eighteen and op Ed bragging that he was a slave owner I have a quote right here. My roots go back within my lifetime to my paternal grandmother Miss Christie Christina Brown to Senate of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brownstown that's almost as bad as white settlement yes. which is an actual city he was out there bragging about it the data about slavery. So can we verify not exactly but we know that Kamala Harris hasn't denied it. And even? Your guess is as good as mine will I. Guess as good as her dad's I'm willing to bet he did at twenty three and me ancestor dot. com. So. Proud. She's proud of his love it. Accuse people of being tone deaf because you're white. Man a black man. HR. Bragging about a town named after his slave owner in a plantation. I mean you just think you just think like someone might have did proofread this. You know what? Hey, you know what Mr You might want to re highlights portions and read. That's the best part promote these subservience. Yeah I worked so hard. That's what we want. Also that I did the tanker commercial that's just not do that because they no longer Wanna be associated with this. So here's something that is important to me. We look at everything through the Lens of identity politics. Kamala Harris obviously, she's a wealthy person. She was rate she jamaica right. Slave owner, that's the ancestry. So are we going to argue that Kamala Harris coming here to the United States has faced the same kind of discrimination or or systemic racism that African Americans are claiming experience, and here's also the problem with that. Let's take it a step further because they say you have white privilege you have well, really Asian privileged not to that's the thing because of Harvard and Brown. We're better. Yeah. That is. It's genetics. Everyone gets incoming genetics talk about Asians or better but they. Do. Better. Right I mean we're taking over. The years like nineteen, billion of them. I. Don't know why. But your people are fertile bill. You look at them wrong to get pregnant. So you want to say we're going to read a lady who came from Jamaica. The descendant of slave owners has it worse off than let's say someone from West Virginia, who is not the descendants of slave owner was raised in poverty. You know what? Let's use I'll use myself as a very specific example because we assume that all white Americans are the beneficiaries of slavery in to some degree or another and that black people today today in two thousand twenty are somehow still feeling those systemic effects and that may be true in some scenarios in my..

"This is like a tributary grandparents though, isn't it? Memories On my God I mean you know listen, it's. I mean it's in all cultures, but I. I was speak of what I know and I mean the importance of children. And nurturing children, you know and being you know I wrote a books. Just, after my mother passed away, I've written two books down the one I wrote back when she passed away and I dedicated it to her. I said I've never known anyone. Who is? Tougher smarter and more loving than my mother. And you know all of those things exist in one person in into a certain extent it. It was cultural to she was now. It's it's always a risk when we're. We're learning our culture primarily through our parents, and then they leave some stuff out, you know. Kind of made to look a little silly. Sometimes I used to think everything that was Chinese was Taiwanese because my mom's Taiwanese and she claimed that olive. Chinese culture was Taiwanese culture so I grew up with that Nice blindspot We can't let you go without asking the question on everyone's mind, which is if given offer you know? Do you want to be Joe Biden vice-president? If I was asked course I'd be honored to be asked and would say but I will tell you the really. The most important thing is that he wins I. I cannot stress that enough in listen. When we talking about the API community, it is the fastest growing I believe community in the country in terms of ethnic groups. And there is so much at stake in this election when you talk about everything from how we how serious there will be taking hate crimes, and do we have an attorney? General of the United States who takes these kinds of things seriously in bill bar trump's attorney general we have, and before that under jeff sessions. Who was the first Attorney General Under Donald? Trump they are no longer really enforcing consent decrees where courts have found the there needs to be reformed because of discrimination and. Force they're no longer engaging in significant pattern and practice investigations of discrimination by police departments You can look at it in terms of what's happening with immigration and my God. We're and by the way it is everyone it is. It is our Latino. Brothers and sisters are Asian brothers and sisters. It is people arriving from African continent from the Caribbean. Who are the child's separation policies? How even moral can that be A president of the United States was calling the Wuhan Virus. which is what is precipitated. The kind of hate crimes were seeing in particular guest. Chinese Americans. Are those perceived to be China's Americans. We can look at what's at risk. In terms of the weather. We're going to have a country with a leader who is spending fulltime, trying to so hate and division or a leader who's trying to unify build our country. So all of that is at stake, and this is it is, it is not even subtle. It is very real. It is very apparent. This stuff is banging on our door in terms of the issues that we can actually impact, when and if we evil and so I just want to stress to everyone. You must vote and do not be afraid and make sure that voices are counted. Make sure that your candidate in the Census and the twenty twenty cents is, but there's so much at stake for all communities, and in particular for for for communities who have often been overlooked, had been dismissed or ignored or marginalized.

"I wanted to turn to basically something more current, which is anti. Asian and anti-black sentiment you know recently there's been a lot of incidents of racism to talk about a lot of complicated conversations. According to the Stop, a API hate tracker there have been. Already seventeen hundred reported incidents of anti Asian hate crimes during the pandemic, and at the same time, the black community is hurting anew with the names of a Marbury beyond a Taylor George Floyd. How do you think government can address this stuff? First and foremost. Leaders have to speak truth about the fact that racism is real in America and has always been. And so it may be uncomfortable for people to speak much less here, but we can't ever get on the path of healing. If we don't speak that truth and these various incidents. Hate crime is not new against the community against black people in America against LGBTQ people, it's not new in fact as Attorney General California. One of my many responsibilities was to publish the hate. Crimes Report on a regular basis, the the anti-semitism. This stuff is not new in America. What is what is tragic is that it's not ending. It's not in we're and we're seeing a resurgence, and we see every so often, and so, what must the government do? Will leaders in the government wanted to speak the truth about it? And then there a number of things that we have to do it is certainly when we're talking about hate crime, and I say this perhaps is a former prosecutor who has prosecuted hate crime. There needs to be serious investigation of these cases meaning that when someone reports it, they must be taken seriously. They must be given dignity through the process, and then there must be serious investigation. These crimes and accountability and consequence and nat point is is more than a notion, because if someone who is an immigrant, if someone who speaks English with a heavy accent walks into a police department. It is a legitimate question to ask. Will they be taken seriously? Will they be treated with dignity? So these are real issues that have to be confronted in the overall process that means about training law enforcement that means about training prosecutors about the significance of hate crime. It means doing the outreach with communities that are reluctant to report it because they believe one, it is natural. It keeps happening and happened to their friends and happen to their cousins, and happened to their aunties and uncles, and it just happens. To. They may feel that if they reported. Nothing will happen in three for some many Asian cultures. It's not supposed to be about you, and so people feel that they have to subordinate some times what has been a personal affront for the sake of the community, and what might result in bringing law, enforcement and government into the community for the purposes of an investigation, so that has to be about training of. Of Law enforcement has to outreach to communities where communities have the ability to report these things in a way that they will be treated with dignity. There is the work that needs to be done about speaking about America's history on race. You know we know that the Chinese Americans built help build California into what it is built the railroads, but yet on the books on the long were forbidden own property. You can look at Japanese interment. We can go on and on down the list right and so there's the piece of it also has to be about education and reminding. Our Country of where we've been recently on a lot of these issues, and in so these are some of the things that I think about and then the last piece, which is equally important as anything else. We need equal representation among people who are in positions of power so that they will understand they will reflect the diversity of who we are as a country, and they will also speak. To the issue, but it should not be incumbent on just a an API elected official to do the work of speaking out against these injustices but I will tell you guys I mean on that point in terms of what's happening in the Senate what's happening around some of the stuff you know Congresswoman Mang and I have a resolution that is about denouncing Asian. Anti Asian sentiment caused by the coronavirus amazing Hirano, the senator from Hawaii, and and and Tammy Duckworth from Illinois. We have a full resolution that's condemning Asian crime and in terms of Asian. anti-asian hate crime, and and basically calling on public officials to denounce racism and xenophobia and anti Asian sentiment but we also need to push that all leaders speak out against us in that is just not on the shoulders of those of us who come from these communities to speak about it. Well that's exactly right and I think for us, too. You know along that thought comes the of interrogating one's own community about racism. You know the anti blackness within the Asian American community for example leading to hopefully a more uniform solidarity more unity across communities. But we could talk to you for hours about all of this stuff but we wanted to squeeze in before we go are bad Asian confession segment in which we share time or an experience and Franken I've shared so many of these where something had made feel like a bad Asian. We do this so that we can all impact it together. It's like a it's like a group Hug. It's like group therapy. We wanted to know what is one of yours senator. Oh! Okay, Well one is I didn't realize that it was more than something my mother did. Like for my entire life up until last year I didn't realize that it was apparently a thing to put Indian spices in tasters. Choice Coffee Jars. We had a whole spice cabinet full because she would drink. Taste destroys coffee which was. Basically spoon out with the Cup pour hot water? And she would have that every morning literally. Don't talk to mommy until she's had her coffee and it was tasteless. Choice coffee well if you looked in the spice cabinet. Like big things of tumor, big things of human big things with muster receive all in tasters. Choice containers. These glass containers with this twist top. And then I was with on a pretty a very well known actor and comedian, and we were cooking together. We were making those together, and she pulls out this vice. This and they were all in tasters. Choice containers. And she and I had the biggest laugh because she didn't know either that this apparently thing among I guess the in her parents are father and my mother were into the same generation. That's one I. Guess the other one. It's a very. I've never confessed this, but we would always challenge members of my so. Indians cannot pronounce doubly. We would sometimes challenge like my grandmother pronounced. That's awful and I'm sure we're the only bad. I am so sure you are not. Just said that I've never said that out loud..

"My family's from south, India, so the language languages, Tamil, but they also for most of her life lived in Bombay and Delhi, so she's Hindi and all and earn. Do but I will tell you that probably many kids I learned with great acuity words of affection and words of frustration. Of course that just is about mother-tongue, right the words that you speak to your children that are words about deep love, and the words that are utter frustration. Just come out in your mother tongue so i. know those words you can always tell a lot about people by their grandmother's language. They learned the only words I know are like I'm full and I'm hungry so. And my grandmother's language so, but I wanted to turn to a back to sort of talking about you know Biracial -ality and especially as a presidential candidate. You know it felt like people encourage you, or there's pressure to choose a side you know black or Indian, American, and at one point you're asked directly in an interview at one point to say, indian-american are African American. which you know doesn't really jive with my understanding of my biracial friends identity, and what you said it was I'm a proud American in response to this question you know. How do you feel about the way? Our political environment handles biracial identity, and do you feel pressured to pick a side and does that reflect your life experience? Well I mean I have to tell you rancor honestly I. I don't even think we're that sophisticated yet I think that you just have to ask. How does America handle race? Much less what it means to be biracial. Like literally when you're talking about running for office, and you can ask any one of us who was one of the first of our kind to run based on gender or race, and you will know that it can be a challenge because. People. They're more comfortable on I guess. It's easier to place a candidate in a box that you already have defined. And based on your exposure and your your knowledge, right and your experiences. And so the challenge becomes then when you don't fit in someone's preconceived notion of who is president of the United States because they're only reference, point is who has been president of the United States, and not one of those people looks like you. It presents a challenge which is that. You are probably more required more than others that are familiar. You're required to explain things about yourself that otherwise you may not be required to explain. And that that can be challenging for a number of reasons including because. At that moment, you might prefer that. The interview was about your plan for the economy. But you're trying to help. People figure out who you are, even though you're really comfortable in your own skin. Well I think to that point conversations like these I think, do help people figure out you know as they relate to their own experiences in ways that are not widely talked about so I'm curious along along those lines. How have you dealt whether they're coping tools or learned skills or or sources of strength in your life? Have you dealt with this? External interrogation of your identity and how people use it to judge things like electability. Yeah so wonderful question you know I was raised with a deep sense of pride. In my cultural background. Like I've never really had. Mean this not as indictment of anyone, but just speaking about myself. As much as I don't like to do, but. I've never had an identity crisis. And it, just I haven't I haven't. I'm really comfortable in who I am I grew up in a family and extended family. Who was you? We like literally. I didn't go through some evolution. About who am I. What is my identity? I guess the frustration I have is if people think that I should have gone through such a crisis and need to explain it, but I didn't I you know. I grew up. In a community where and maybe it's because also being from the bay area and growing up in the bay area, and there was such a cultural mix of people on in the community in which I was raised, there was an understanding and appreciation. For that that it it just wasn't an issue for me, and but you're right, then being a candidate and going out in the world and being a candidate for public office does mean explaining who you are, then it requires a little bit more exploration to to help people figure it out, but it's not as though it was kind of an evolving consciousness for me. Thank you so much for sharing that and and I think like from what I understand about biracial added entity you know it involves a lot of tackling back and forth, and choosing between them is like choosing between your mom and dad, which you know, no sonner daughters really able to do. Do you have tache. The Knicks ad is for you.

Her father's from Jamaica so welcome to Asian enough senator. It's great to be with you so I'm going to take. Take the first question, and we're just GONNA. Jump right into it so in your memoir. You talked about how your mother made. Conscious choices about raising you and your sister is black woman, though with strong and unquestionable connections to Indian culture. How did she do that? Tell us more about that. Well, so I mean it's complicated, and and probably a lot deeper more complex than we have time for, but I'll try You know she arrived in the US. When she was nineteen years old. She was the eldest of my grandparents. Children and you know an Asian cultures that. She wanted to become a scientist. She wanted to cure cancer, so she went to her father as the eldest child, and it set up by WANNA. Go and I study in what is considered to be one of the best schools for science. I WANNA go to UC Berkeley, and Mike Grandfather it now. This is his eldest daughter, and this is in the late nineteen fifties. Said okay. Follow your dreams. He was very progressive. So my mother flew this. When transient ENA national flights were really very rare, and she arrived in Berkeley California alone. And began her studies, and because my grandfather was really an advocate for India's independence, he was really a extraordinary person, and really always fighting for democracy. And Justice and so immediately. Then of course, my mother was naturally attracted to the civil rights movement that was blossoming or occurring in the bay area and Met My father, and so instead of going back to India had been the plan to have you know what would have been an arranged marriage? She met my father and had a love marriage, and that through my sister and me and my mother understood you know she was just conscious of race. She understood what these things meant. And she knew that in America that her daughters would be treated as for better and for worse as black women and black. Black children and she raised us with a sense of pride about who we were who we are, but never with a false choice, right? It was never to the exclusion of of always also being very proud and very active in terms of our Indian culture as well, but she and she understood what America was at the time, and who America is, and and the struggles that people face in America, and so that's that's it in a nutshell. But there were never any false choices you know. We grew up in the black community and learned that you can cook Okra with mustard seeds, or with dry shrimp in and spicy sausages. Did you learn any of those recipes you. Did you keep any of those? You know my will, so I mean? My mother was an extraordinary cook, and as was my grandmother, my aunt, my. Is the. It's the name for your. Your mother's younger sister basically means younger mother, and she thankfully still with us. She and she's a great cook. Indian cooking is very complicated. It's like a lot of Asian cooking. There are a lot of different spices and she was such a good cook, and my aunt is such a good cook so I never really had to learn how to make Indian food, but I have been slowly teaching myself how to do that. But my mother was also. She loved good foods, so she would make. Incredible Italian meals. She would make you know I. Remember US making bows and. Tons I. Remember s making you know. She loved to make barbecue. It was just it was a ECLECTIC, but I think it was just was a very universal I in many ways she loved cultures, and and and she loves to cook. She sounds really fascinating and I want to also ask about your grandma India. I'm told that she was somewhat of a an advocate for access to birth control and an activist. Well Nigh Grandmother was so my grandmother had an arranged marriage. She was married at a very young age. To my grandfather, but then I started living with him when he was, she was older and. I don't think she graduated High School I. Don't know, but my grandmother was one of the smartest people you have ever met. And she knew everything about politics. She Nuba Policy and she was. That, she was a force a force in the context of our family in the context of her community, and she was the person who would take in everything from. She would feed the stray dogs to to take it to fight for women's rights to fight for you know whatever fight against whatever she thought was unfair and. and. This is just who she was. She was a protector. My Grandmother, really when it comes down to what was it just a protector, she? She always protected people that she felt needed to be protected. I'm so curious also in terms of language. You know you'd go to visit your family or extended family in India as a child and elsewhere like your grandfather was stationed in Zambia but In terms of the language. Did you take any of that with with you? Does your family speak Tom I think? Who Baby I mean sadly I didn't learn. I did not ever become fluent in the language..
