"Am I ask you, Dr Bernice King? What is your goal? As the CEO of the King Center? You have your 3 65 training. You have your awards. You have the commemorative service. What is it? That doctor Bernice King would like to say is her legacy when it comes to the legacy of her father and mother. You know, my parents didn't get an opportunity. Really in bed in the fabric of our society nonviolent of a way of life. And that's what I see My number one mission to be that there will be a critical mass of people really are living it on a daily basis, not just something. They pick up when they're some kind of activism, but they're doing it in their homes. They're doing it in their workplaces. They're doing it in their community needs they're doing on Capitol Hill. Um, you know, they're doing it in Hollywood. They're doing it as it relates to the media and entertainment they're doing in health care to do it in every arena in classrooms s O. That is really not my goal. They raise up Generations of people who are practitioners of Nonviolence. Quite a few people from Capitol Hill, of course last week, you know who could guess. Use a little bit of your training there, Dr. King a lot of it. A lot of what did you think it went? And we discussed this on our Facebook live the other day with you. What were your first thoughts when you saw the images? What was going on on Capitol Hill. The rioting, the insurrection. What were your thoughts? You know, A lot of things went through my mind. It's not where I landed ultimately, but the first thing that went through my mind is any black person. Uh, you know who has either. Been directly a victim of, um or witnessed or understands their blackness. If this were us, this would not have happened. There would have been You know, they would have been really militarized and facing any mob of black people, um, seeking to engage an accent, terra and an insurrection. S so that's the first thing that went through my mind. Yeah, and the second thing was connected to that is why is this taking so long? So I immediately said OK. There's gotta be an inside job going on here. There's some people who cooperated with this. Um and this is why it's happening. And at this level, you know, the third thing I thought about is I thought about how violently then as a nation, you know, Daddy talked about United States being the greatest purveyor of violence. We were founded in violence, people talking about the American Revolutionary War, and the problem is when, when you sow seeds of violence, eventually they erupt. Harvest comes And we're seeing a harvest of that now and our society of not just what they did. But the number of guns that are in our society under the 93 million guns, which is more than Population and 60 enough of every single man, woman and child and at least 60 something left over that That is so tragic. On dweeb got to do something about that. We've got to find a way to restore civility as it relates to our gun rights that really the public square. Them should not be the place where people are allowed to bring guns, and we allow that to happen throughout silence and complicity in the last several years. With many of these laws he's open carry laws. And all of that, So we've we've gotta undo that. I think Um, um. S O You know, I thought about all of this, But then I finally said Look at the end of the day. What just happened? Is all the more reason there's an urgency to really commit to creating the beloved community because we can't stand for any more of this. We can't stand for more insurrection, Domestic terrorism, violence. We can't stand for any more extreme poverty and they were with you know we are Dealing now, with a pandemic that is exacerbated poverty on. So how do we build this beloved community Because even into the left community, you know you discover ways to share resource is, you know and share wealth and share opportunities. On s O. We are just on this quest. Now they helped build that community and also in the beloved community and I heard it so eloquently today by one of our summit participants. And she said in the beloved community, you stand your ground, but but at the same time you find a common ground. It means you don't have to deny yourself of your beliefs. And your positions, But you spend time at the same time looking for ways that you can find a common place but to move forward in a win win. Scenario for the greater good s o, You know, these are the things that I was going through my head and I said, I thank God that we are lying. You know, when we went into 2020, and we started thinking about where we go in terms of thematic approach for the King holiday observance we had already laid out in 20. Uh, 20. The fierce urgency of now the beloved community that was acting so we just thought decided, tweak it a little bit and still keep us focused on that and talk about the urgency of creating the beloved community who would have ever known at the pinnacle. You know, of everything we witnessed last year and coming into this year would be this insurrection. I mean, you know, I knew that there was going to be some kind of violent eruption. If Trump want didn't know how that would express itself and where would express itself. But I can't the six and that was going to happen s O. This urgency is honest now and I don't know. If we just a glutton for punishment, you know if we just a soul in love of violence, um, that we can't seem to understand. Hey, guys. We have to change course in our value system. You know, we've got to do some self interest suspects in and we've got to adopt. And embrace a new ways of thinking and engaging and acting and passing policy. So that's where I am and I'm excited to be in the zone. And in the epicenter of all of this activity around creating the beloved community, the beloved community indeed, Dr Bernice King as we're talking, the U. S house has impeached. President Donald Trump for a second time, and you spoke earlier this week when we were talking live on our Facebook. You talked about there being accountability and the president being one of those who had to be held accountable. Your reaction now that he has been impeached Congratulations to the house.

You know it. Wow. I mean, you know, I can't even imagine. Um We would have been at 92. I just I can't talk about that at all. Because I'm so used to The Martin Luther King that we cannot frozen in time in terms of, you know, the period in which he made great impact so but You know, my mom would have been 94 this April and so The good thing is I have a measurement because my father's sister, Christine, King Farris, is still living. She's 93 will be 94 this year. And so, you know, Um, we're glad to still have her with us as a part of the King family. But 92 That means if you subtract 39 from 92 we're looking at and staring at 53 years since my father left us. And the good thing is he did not leave us without some guidance without some direction, and we've got to find a way to really Embrace those teachings and embody them and live them out, because that's why we're contending with many of the social And economic and equities, racial inequities in our day he's been 53 years We should have made so much more progress by now.

And of course, we talk about the beloved community. It is something that your father wanted so much. Tol have created in this country. Can you explain everyone what the beloved community is? Yeah, You know, First of all, I want to dispel this notion that it's some kind of Kumbaya type of thinking and living. You know, And can we all just get along or In other regards for some people. I wanted to spell the notion that it's an utopian something that you know we will not be able to create in our lifetime. We say that the beloved community is an inclusive, achievable society. In which problems and conflicts do exist. That's very important for people to understand, because some people again think that it's just kind of Kumbaya, and we've kind of moved away from any tension. Ondas Daddy said. True justice is not merely the absence attention, but the presence of justice so you can't have a beloved community. If there's no tension, because if you just quelled attention, and there's not a presence of justice, you have what you call a negative piece. So it is this, uh, society in which problems and conflicts exist, but you worked together on a means to resolve them peacefully. And poverty, discrimination violence, uh, that, he said the triple evils of poverty, racism and militarism are unacceptable and those things that we fight against because their threats to ask sense of community and connectedness. Um and you infuse the policies and practices and language with AH, ga pay love.

It feels like family and it transcends race, religion class on divan identity and so we have to learn. Have lived together Dad, he said, his brothers or sisters or together, well parishes, foods and so learning how to co exist is a key factor in the beloved community. Um, And it's the salient, spiritually motion that we all live in and share the World House that we're in a related were interconnected. And that warrants us to be other center.

How The Food Industry Manipulates Public Opinion, Science, And Government
"Today. I want to talk about how the food industry many plays public opinion manipulate science. Manipulates the government. So here we go. Let's take on Science I. I mean who isn't confused about what to eat. And that's why I wrote my book action. But what's really going on is a concerted effort by the food industry that manipulates science. The government our government spends about one billion a year on nutrition research. The food industry spends twelve billion. And they find all kinds of concocted studies. That actually manipulate the truth. For example. I think Coca Cola. Spent one hundred twenty million dollars to universities and other groups to actually provide money money for research and guess what they funded three hundred eighty nine articles and one hundred sixty nine journals. Things like exercise. Is the key to weight. Loss at soda doesn't have any role in our way. The Snack Food Manufacturers Association groups that confections group funded studies that show the kids. We Candy Actually Lose More Weight and have less inflammation the kids who don't eat candy. I mean how does that even make sense? And when you look at the data I'm you know studies funded by the food. Industry Are Eight to fifty times more likely to show benefit? I studied for example on artificial sweeteners. Show that by the food industry that ninety nine percent they're safe and effective but about ninety plus percent of the studies but their independence show that they cause weight gain obesity. Damage the microbiome and definitely are not a healthy food and not good for dieting. So we have so much going on all the time in research I there was a there was a big review. For example by a group of scientists have looked at sugar recommendations it was published in the animal internal medicine which is one of the most important journals in medicine and yet it it shed very computing. Seems like there's no evidence for assure guidelines to reduce sugar that actually sugar is an harmful that our concerns are overstated in the data to support any limits on sugar in our diet. Well the study was funded by a group called the International Science Institute which sounds awesome but turns out is funded by none other than Coca Cola and Monsanto and Pepsi and all the big characters in the food industry so we're completely bamboozled by misinformation major journals and it confuses doctors nurses nutritionists computers the public and even in confuses policymakers. How do you make sense of all this? So you really have to follow the money so nutrition. Science corruption is huge. And it doesn't just stop there. He go onto fun all sorts of professional associations for example the American Diabetes Association the American Heart Association the Academy of Nutrition Dietetic which which receives forty percent of its funding from the food industry. They create a partnership with kraft singles. Calling it the smart slice of cheese you know which is crazy because it's not even cheese. Something has to be fifty one percent cheese to call it cheese so I'd say cheese like product or I don't even know what to call it. The government doesn't like to call cheese and that's called a heart healthy. Smart Snack is because they were funded by the food industry They are also corrupting their meetings. Their meetings and they provide all sorts of CO education so they have panels with makers of high fructose Corn Syrup and transfats an all kinds of crazy stuff and it just computers nutritionist. Because it seems like it's good science. They're very very good and they spend millions millions and billions on this so they corrupt all these organizations and and so Dr John Nine Ninety s as a professor at Stanford said. We shouldn't believe any recommendations coming out of professional societies that have conflicts of interest. I mean how does the American Heart Association can have fruit loops and twix cereals? Be Hard healthy when they're so full of sugar because they're low fat they get three hundred thousand dollars for putting that seal of approval so we have to be very cautious consumers. See Not just stop. With professional associations they also create front groups. Front groups are group's that actually seem like they're legitimate groups but actually are funded by the food industry or the Agan History of the oil industry. So you've got things like climate smart. Agriculture sounds wonderful. And I who's against that right but it's funded by the fertilizer companies who want to use more fertilizer and as we've talked about before fertilizer drives huge amounts of damage to the ecosystem uses tons of energy to produce damage our waterways at his huge contributor to climate change so Not so smart. In my opinion I see you've got then you've got the ways in which these companies also create corporate social responsibility and it's another mechanism. They used they. They fund groups that are social groups. It's called corporate social responsibility. And what did they find? They find the N. W. C. P. And they find the Hispanic preparation make money. And what does that do that makes them sort of loyal to them and a little bit and the it co ops them for example and there's a soda tax on the ballot. They actually will oppose a soda tax. Because they're funded by coca-cola or or the food industry or so makers is pretty pretty frightening. they also fun things like the hunger groups which which why they're so against limiting soda for snap or food stamps are we spent seven billion soda for the poor every year about thirty billion servings through our food stamp program how that make any sense. When we're trying to create a healthy population says all these insidious ways they caught these groups. I remember when I was showing fed up in Atlanta. I met with Bernice King. Martin Luther King's daughter and she wanted to the movie and the King Center instead of being nonviolent is also nonviolent yourself through how you take care of your health and she was all excited about it and I got a call later. We couldn't show the film there and I was like why and that was moving about obesity in the food industry said well because Coca Cola Funds King Center. It's pretty frightening And how they co op these groups And we also do all kinds of other nefarious things They besides the front groups besides sole told responsibility besides getting into our public health academies besides corrupting science. They're involved in terrible political efforts that are behind the scenes that manipulate public opinion for example. Now there's a couple of things that happened. One was an effort by the Grocery Manufacturers America which essentially was a representative now-disbanded thankfully that was representing the big food companies and they illegally got them to contribute to a slush fund to fight. Gmo labeling. Which would have cost those companies billions of dollars and fight it in Washington state and they pretended to sort of hide behind this this group. That wasn't actually disclosing the funding Attorney General Washington state figure this out and sued the grocery manufacturers of America for campaign finance violations and led to the biggest settlement. I think it was like fourteen or eighteen million dollars against them Yet the ballot passed to fight. Gmo labeling and they won they spent so much money but they got slapped a few million bucks. I mean they make millions of dollars. They don't really care. But after that a number of these companies actually you're standing up and doing good things and I think I see I see progress. I see change and that makes me happy for example Nestle's known Unilever and Mars Got Out of Jimmy at that point the grocery manufacturer America and they formed a sustainable food policy alliance which was a great idea. And I think it's exciting and we'll see what happens with that. Nomination hopefully work with him on my food fix campaign so so that was terrible and then of course even worse things eighty for example they create a ballot initiative in California which was to prohibit local governments from raisings local taxes unless there was a two thirds majority which would have crippled the governments in the local towns so they couldn't schools are departments police stations etc and They didn't care about that but they cared about was manipulating. The Governor Governor Jerry Brown is probably liberal governor. We had in America to put a preemptive policy that prevented any future taxes on soda. Junk food. Now think about that. I mean they literally strong armed the government by threatening them with a measure that would they spent seven million dollars promoting that would have crippled local governments and basically bribed to force the governor to create this preemptive law which is terrible so all of a sudden affairs ways that the food industries acting and we need to fight

"You'll hear from saints in Ben Watson along with Seth Dunlap on the last lap on this Anthony Davis saga that took an ugly. Turn for the worse last night when he flat out walked out on his teammates. After what he saw what suffered after he suffered a shoulder injury towards the end of the first half in a win over the Oklahoma City thunder mind you last night in the first half third quarter rolls around Anthony Davis leaves the smoothie King Center leaves his teammates leaves the fan base for the better part of seven seasons. Loved them cherish them. Defended him protected him. Because he's being advised by Rich Paul who is the agent of LeBron James as well. And his business partner and originally. I was okay. I I stood up there on January twenty eighth when Anthony Davis said I want out of New Orleans. I was like, I don't blame you pal. Now, they've had a long they've had a while to build around. You haven't been able to do that they fired general manager del Dem's today, I'll get to that and a few moments but Davis is now indefensible his actions are poor one of the baby. One of an infant to degree a toddler. To behave like that to just walk out on the city on your team on your franchise is inexcusable. The pelicans cannot play him at all for the rest of the year. I don't care how bad the shoulder injury is it's a contusion for goodness sakes. And you know, I used to defend a AD for his reckless abandon. That's why he is often injured can't do that anymore because hey, look clear last night that that wasn't that violent of a foul or another. There was no foul. There was not even a violent of that violent of a play. I used to defend them on that all the time. Can't do that anymore. Either this saga this brow? Saga has turned into. I mean, you might as well be watching the mid day soap opera, that's what it turned into a lead Alvin gentry calling the issue a dumpster fire last night. I empathize with Alvin gentry to degree. He's smack dab in the middle of this. Until today. The organization had not said anything about the direction of this organization. We'll get to that in a few moments. But who's the bad guy here? Who's the good guy? It's clearly Anthony Davis for me is the bad guy. It's one thing to sit up there and say I just wanna play by play basketball. Then you try demand. Oh, I don't want to go out. I don't want to go to the Celtics. I want to go to the Lakers in hats off to the pelicans for not being bullied by Rich Paul and Anthony Davis who thought they can manipulate their way for Anthony Davis to end up in LA with LeBron which leads me to another point. Magic Johnson is not the general manager LA Lakers, the general manager of the LA Lakers, whereas high tops his name's LeBron James so hats off to the pelicans stand in fast on that standing their ground on that they're not needed and allow Rich Paul to dictate the terms as to win. This trade was going to happen. And what it looked like? But don't sit up there. Anthony Davis and say. I just wanna play ball, then quit on your teammates. You can't have your cake and eat it too. You can't say I just wanna play. I just wanna play ball. But then you go out there on the home court in the smoothie King Center. Against the Oklahoma City thunder and suffer contusion and walk out of the arena. I mean if he had any class whatsoever. He would say, okay. Even if it's not a legit injury. Even if it's an injury that he could've come back from played played it, but just didn't want to. I'm even kind of okay with that. But don't leave the arena, go back and sit on a bench with your teammates, at least show them some support who showed you support when you demanded and asked for trade you put them on on notice. You put them out there in the media having to answer questions about you. And you can't even suffer a minor injury. And go support your teammates that you currently are part of this team man, that's weak. That is weak weak. Weak. Are blue runner food's opinion poll online for yet wwLcom if you were the pelicans would you sit AD for the remainder of the season or play him when he's healthy to me, you cannot allow that guy to ever even come close to touching another New Orleans pelicans uniform, you just can't take away his sneakers take away the jersey. There's no way. I mean you heard after last night. Gale benson. The owner was furious about that. I think that's why you saw the shoe drop today and firing gentle manager del dense. Call me at five oh, four to six zero one eight seven what do you make of this whole Anthony Davis saga? Who's the good guy who's the bad guy? Good guy, actually, good gal. Finally, we we heard from the ownership. At the top the pelicans, they're done. They've had enough. They are moving on from Dell dense and trying to overhaul that basketball operations Diller. Good guy. They at least stood by what they said. They were going to do. They're not going to succumb to the pressure of Rich Paul Anthony Davis demanding kicking their feet kicking and screaming. They to be traded to the Lakers. The Lakers didn't come up with a good enough offer. And what is the NBA ever gonna at all at least acknowledged the possibility of tampering from Rich, Paul? There's a clear conflict. He's LeBron James agent. Of course, by the way, he was hired by Anthony Davis in September, the writing was on the wall, and this one nobody thought that would really pass up on what thirty million dollars for the supermax deal that the pelicans could offer them. Anthony Davis once revered he's now the. He he might as well, he might as well be a person he is persona non grata.

It'd be great. I dug Amar Georgia Justice project. You all wanted to partner in agencies. Yes, arm- tell us a little bit about Georgia Justice project. What you all do? Well, we're a small non profit been around for thirty two years. It's all criminal Justice. We're located right behind the King Center and fourth ward, we do three things that GDP is we call Georgia Justice project, g JP we do holistic indigent defense for like a private public defender as one thing don't allow our folks in the prison and afterwards them get back on the feet and plants families. We the second thing we do which is relevant for why. We're here today is we hope we're the only group in the state that really helps people with criminal records, helping people change the record fix a change it or get a job or housing in spite of it. And then the third thing we do is to change the laws in Georgia push for change around most level, some municipalities to make it easier for reentry it make it easier for people who've been engage touched by the system. So they can get back on the feet have a second chance. So Georgia's bribe, but very important because one of the things we always have to remember that we sometimes lose we see people go to jail hit the gavel, but ninety five percent of those gone all about four or five have either sentences of death or life without the possibility of parole is it probably in less than that. But they're coming back out. And you just made a point for those of us who can knock on wood all the my arrest. I got about a dozen of them have been for protests ain't been resin. No criminal at fifty three ain't had no criminal charges level other than. Disturbing the peace in some of the other stuff, but people are coming out. And let's talk about some of the things that as a even convicted on misdemeanor level, you're not eligible for some housing development will not let you rent from that. That's a whole big area. That's really difficult. First of all ninety eight percent of all housing in the country is private. So even though the public housing has her own barriers by statute the biggest barrier is the private housing, which actually can there is some well, they don't have to tell you. Well, we will look at your application and all of a sudden apartment somebody else came in. That's right. And they can they get away. Unfortunately with a lot of all you got a record. We're not gonna let you run here. And it hurts a lot of people. So that's how big deal, I know the other one that often come up is you're not eligible for financial aid if your student that that's right and actually just getting into college. Box to college students. I ask him. How many of you remember your application? How many of you were asked if you've ever been convicted of a crime or a felony and raise their hands. I did it once interestingly about my good friend. Mary Shaw is president of oglethorpe. And he's been the volunteer with us. I was talking to a class there. And I asked that question, and he was surprised he said, I didn't realize we asked the question. I think got rid of the question now, more and more universities. I are getting rid of that banning the band in a boxes counter picking up. That's right. But at the federal Abe level, a drug conviction of felony drug conviction can stop you from getting financial aid to go to college. So that you're you're absolutely right. And then you don't have to be Pablo Escobar to have a fellow Attleboro. You have you had more than a couple of hours of the weed? That's right. Proud to now. That's right. That was considered a you could have a felony conviction. That's right over announced. It's right. Then there's a Bill moving through right now through cinder Cooper. Senate from Augusta is pushing a Bill that would move up the limit from misdemeanor marijuana. So that two ounces of below would be a misdemeanor in Georgia. Now believe it's a. Yeah. Yeah. As a felony. So that's right. So keep going. No, no, no. I was just thinking of the ones I knew that others because I want people to understand how important this effort is if you fall in any of these class categories, you can be excluded in that for you need to make sure you come out on Friday. That's right. Well. One area. We've run into everything I mean, anywhere for obviously jobs, and then we're going to talk about housing education other benefits. One thing that we've run into is family who wants to adopt somebody in their family. I've had class where grandparent. Wow. And then try to say, listen, my kids out my kids in jail, my kids, whatever I wanna stop. I don't want my kids. My grandkids being raised in the foster care system. And they go to the state system and say I want to apply the systems, whether you got this film client, nineteen Seventy-six felony conviction. And this is a few years ago. Wouldn't let him as a business owner very successful. But it wouldn't let him adopt and take his own grandkids in because of his forty year old felony conviction. So it can impact your ability to adopt even your own family. Obviously immigration. We won't even go there. It can affect so many things lots of other benefits. But again jobs is such a key part of this. Because one data point I'm going to give your listeners is that job. The best way we are concerned about people not going back to prisoner keeping working. That's right. The data's clear out is it that is the best. Right. I let them know. Very clearly, I got to my mind be fighting. I ain't got time to fight. You got time to rob. Rob your house.
