I don't ask Rick Tidwell to bring it because it already done got Bra until back with you in San Francisco because to coast and around the world on the American Forces Radio Network and It's our pleasure to be joined by. Kwame May Mason. He is here as part of. Nhl Black Hockey history tour. It's going to be at the Shark tank tomorrow night at a mobile museum be open to the public outside the sap center and then on Sunday over at Oakland. Ice and the museum is free and accessible to everyone. Thanks for being on the show. What was the genesis behind pudding? Dissemble museum tour to To to work well you know first of all. Thank you for having me. Allow me to join you guys and thank you very much crew playing a little too short. We appreciate it. That right there. as far as the genesis of the most museum go. This is our second year of the Mobile Museum last year. the FBI gave idea came from one of our executives. Kim Davis Brilliant Woman Who Just joined onto the national hockey league and You know she had this idea of utilizing a company called 'em Ra that Specializes on doing these types of things and she thought it'd be great to do kind of like a mobile museum dedicated to the history blackout hockey. Now I mean a documentary called so nice past presidents future which is basically About the history black athletes and hockey and so she asked myself and a young lady by Lisa chant who also works for the NHL to Put Our put our heads together and and and come up with an idea where we can celebrate and educate the history of black outfits inside his Mobile Museum. So I just kind of took what I did for my film and just kind of combined that with what you know people would be able to see. Feel touch lead and put together with in this very cool down this shark tank some years ago. My career was a big hit African American or I should say Canadian African Canadian player. But I think now I mean right there at the tank he got e. Canine EVANGER KANE AND PK. Suba on one of the best offensive. Blue Liners you got Wayne Simmons who is just traded. Have you had feedback from some of the present day players of African heritage? Yeah you know Grizzly got to check it out. I haven't spoken to him but you know. Wayne Simmons and PK. Sue Ban. They were on the truck and they really Really appreciate the efforts that were making to celebrate their accomplishments along with their peers accomplishments In the game of hockey I mean this is just one of those steps that are needed to Help US grow the game. Help us be able to Show that we have a long standing history and the game so I think for guys like that you know when they come on the bus and they look around they'd see themselves. They see guys that they played against guys and gals they really looked up to You know they just kind of get this sense of pride and that kind of sentiment that I got from The players who have come on the truck so far I think advocate gonNA come and check it out tomorrow as well so I'm really looking forward to showing him the Trump as well. You know it's interesting. I remember when the sharks went to the Stanley Cup. Another fan favorite and he had some clutch goals in the playoffs was Joel Ward. And he came from Little Prince Edward Island in Canada and Ann Arbor. He'd be interviewed by some of the more traditional American outlets especially out here in the Bay Area. And they're like was it tough for you coming through and he's like not really. My older brothers all played and this is just what is just what we all did Where I lived he. He's just one of the most chill professional athletes that I that I've ever seen. Did you ever get a chance to hook up with Joel Ward? Yeah Joel Who's actually from Scarborough Ontario in Toronto He's in my documentary as well. And you're right. He is one of the most chill guys and You know I it. It's just like inherent to most hockey players to be Very chill very humble and It's no different for the black hockey player as well You know Joel is a great guy. And and like he was so clutch and the play offs. You know he was the guy that I remember the one thing. He's always say to me is like you know a lot of these guys man. They don't look down. Don't look down. I'm always looking down for that puck and you know it's there that that's where I'm going. I'm putting that puck in the back of that so You know I think he had a really great career. Great Story of perseverance To get to where he was where he was able to Have a good career in hockey with the traditional route you know. He was never drafted by like traditionally most play as well so he had to really fight hard and historians very inspirational for young kids to learn and know about You know that there's different routes to to the child. If you work hard you can get yourself a great education and at the same time you can also make your dreams come true. Yeah I stand corrected he. He played in Juniors P. I that's what I was thinking on. -Tario Guy We're speaking with Kwame Mason about the NHL black history hockey tour coming to the shark tank. Tomorrow and Oakland is on Sunday. I'm always reminded of the the Chris. Rock joke where he said. Why don't black guys play hockey because we don't feel the need to dominate yet? Another sport and there's always been back. That's actually that's actually that quotas actually at the very beginning of myself okay. Yeah it's a great way to start it off. Because he he he he talks about you know once. We learn to have a heated rink. And you know we're going to dominate again hockey as well. You know. It's funny as that when I worked in. Tv All through the nineties and when the sharks came in and ninety one and I was working the TV Games. I worked with my buddy Dave who's also from Oakland African American and he said I I can't get into you know black guys. Don't lie hockey and I might just just take a look at it. And he's like Nah people will be disappointed in me if I like hockey and I'm like what's that all about. Is that something to overcome? It's like you're not supposed to lag hockey. Yeah you know it's You know it's one of those things as a person of color. We have a responsibility to teach our children differently when I grew up. I'm sure it's saying when you grew up We were told what we can but we can't do. There was a stereotype as box that we put ourselves into a box. That's assigned put into so for example. You know for when I grew up. Even when I grew up in Toronto Canada you know the narrative was hockey was the white boy spartan and it's not the way for sport. It's just a sport. It's a sport that anybody can play this game. You know where people say stuff like that about it. All Black people don't play sport. I have always correct and business like do you realize the very first organized Sports League for Black Is Hockey. Not Baseball Basketball football hockey. You know when our with our lays from America did the track through the underground railroad and migrated to Canada. They're defending with the first one to start playing the game of hockey and develop the League called the Colored Hockey League of the Maritimes and this was in May eighteen ninety five around to about nineteen thirty and they were the first first athletes devout slapshot. They were the first athletes to develop You know what's known as the butterfly style goal tended so when people of my people talk talk about how we don't we don't have to look at them and say you know that's very counterproductive as a society to tell our children what we can and can't do. We can do anything we want to do. And when we do we do it with style. He's possessed we do it with a class. We do a two point where interest become fresh everything that we touch becomes fresh and if we encourage our children to do anything they want who knows what this world would be. I mean. That's the whole reason why we have to be able to see us doing certain things you know that there's a great movie that we all have or should see which is call hidden figures. Imagine if our young sisters were told that story from generation to generation how many young sisters would be inspired to be mathematicians mathematician. I'm sure at some point. Somebody told our young brothers and sisters. Oh don't do this in education because we can only be craftsmen or we can only work with our hands and that's just a bad narrative and a very ignorant narrative especially coming from our people so to your audience out there anybody in our community that tells you we don't play that for you. Correct them you let them know that we've been playing this sport since the eighteen hundreds very well said one more question for you. I know I mean black history month. We get an extra day this year with the leap year. Hockey is for everyone. That's something that both the Union and the League has been in collaboration with for a while. Right yeah you know. The hockey February program is the the Great you know. It's been ramped up in the last couple of years to really get out there and you know get into different communities different sections of our society. To let people know that it doesn't matter where you come from. You know you album place in this sport and at the same time. The sports is doing due diligence to make sure that became of hockey. Has a safe place for us for our children for. Ltd. L. TB cube throws the sisters you know for our black and browse senses for our disabled brothers and sisters for anybody who wants to play this game. We let them know that hockey is for everyone. And that's that's the that's the model and that's what we want we want to do. You know we're not size defeat. Ignorance designates will always be there. But what we want to say that. If you WanNa try this sport and you want to give it a go you you you the doors open for you and the space is there. And that's the National Hockey League is doing. And and that's what I very much prow of being a part of which is being able to help spread the word of this great game great stuff from kwami Mason. Of course his movie salon is check it out. But he's coca rating the Black Hockey History tour Check it out at the Shark tank tomorrow. Three thirty to seven on Sunday from eleven. Am to four. Oakland.

I. H. require that you disclose collaboration with foreign researchers aren't we mentioned there are two other cases to other cases that the justice department announced both also related to China what details do we know about those so these are from the Boston area as well and they're both against Chinese nationals and one of them if the cases against a Chinese woman who is conducting research at Boston University the allegations against her include that you lied on her visa form a to hide the fact that she is a Chinese military officer the feds reviewed her electronic devices and found that she had done research on US military projects and was compiling information on to US scientists who specialized in robotics and computer science the other case is against a Chinese man who had been doing cancer cell research at a Boston Medical Center he was stopped at Logan airport back in December federal agents found twenty one vials of biological material squirreled away in a sock in his luggage he originally told agents he didn't have anything as bags later admitted that he was trying to take the vials to try not to do his own research wow alright so these three cases is it a coincidence that they were all announced at the same time as their bigger picture here well the bigger picture these cases involve nanotechnology robotics chemistry biomedical research the US attorney for Massachusetts and leveling said that this is not an accident or coincidence this is a small sample of Chinas ongoing campaign to siphon off American technology and know how for Chinese games so American officials are really trying to push back against what they say is the Chinese government's a relentless efforts to steal US intellectual property US research in trade secrets they say China is deliberately targeting high tech fields like the ones we talked about today they say China is using traditional intelligence officers but also businessman researchers and yes academics to try to get their hands on this stuff thank you Brian thank you and Pierce Ryan Lucas the National Hockey League was the last major U.
