And I am. Able as I like to say, hold the heard in generate the hope. So may would feel things. So few things have happened the last time. I saw you a I think it was after Kobe Bryant had died so I had that was like I say the last Sunday in January. And then the next week, one of my highest grew friends passed away during the week after that, my sister passed away. So I've been dealing with a lot of that even before the covert thing hit. But what are the things did I noticed in very? Hesitant to share with people was that even though those things happen, there was A. I was experiencing piece really didn't get touched by those things. And I and you know and I had done I mean just a little self disclosure. I knew my mother passed away. It would be very challenging because of when I was living at Cambridge insight meditation center. In eighty nine, different six years it was November, twenty, second nineteen, eighty, nine, I started dealing with the what they call a deaf awareness meditation practice. What you start the reflect darn. If I did that we're all going to die We don't give beyond death in that sort of thing because I knew when my mother passed, it was going to be really challenging. and. She didn't pass into two thousand and one. So I had a little time. To work on like twelve years. And I think that I continue to work on that and I think it. Manifested in two thousand twenty. where I could see the fruits of the practice. So a lot of times you do these practices are you develop these ways of being? and. You're not really sure. I'm not really sure how it's going to hold up when when the crab is fan. So. You said a lot there. I just want to point one thing out and then didn't follow up on a couple things you said. A lot of people were upset when Kobe Bryant. Passed away in the helicopter crash. The vast majority of people were simply fans. You actually knew him and taught him how to meditate. So it was a different. I. Just want to highlight that that was personal for you. Not just something that happened as a fan. Yes. Yes. It was very personal for me because we're really close. I get the work with him I work with the Lakers, but also I've had in just be when I was writing my book. he had called me and the asked me to come up. To Newport. Beach way lived and hang out for a couple of days because he wanted to start working. He was still it was in the next to last season in the league, but he was about ready to retire.

And be interacting with him in his own base where he didn't have bodyguards and wasn't a crowd was just he and I and the people I work with but Annette on Tribu stored with the Lakers. So he asked me so I asked he got the helicopter with him and to bail up to L. A. because he had a game. So really close in when he when I heard about his death I was actually at the University of Richmond watching the women's basketball games when I got the text. Analytics felt like this is a bad joke in this state right and. So that's how I found out about it and it was it was pretty devastating in that same time. I feel like I could continue to do what I needed to do. Create space for that, hurt. And generate dope and first thing I said was I hope his family's not with them.

Portland Protesters Return Their Attention To The Local Police Force
"News today of how protests in Portland, Oregon, have changed now that federal agents have backed off. Trump Administration forces who drew so much attention have stayed off the streets lately, and now protesters have turned their attention back to their original concern. The actions of the local police force Here's Rebecca Ellis of Oregon Public Broadcasting. Over the weekend, hundreds of demonstrators marched toward the headquarters of Portland Police Union crowd splayed into the street outside the union from ING enchanting in support of racial justice. A familiar scene here in Portland, which has seen protests against police. Violence continue uninterrupted for more than 70 days. Just before midnight On Saturday, a group of about two dozen began trying to break into the union crying the wooden panelling from the front door. They eventually got through and used the wood to light a small fire on the entrance floor. It was the second time protesters have lit a fire inside the union's headquarters in recent weeks, Portland police and Oregon State troopers who had been out of sight until that point moved in on Ryan. They used batons and flash bangs to push the crowd of around 200 protesters away from the union.

Addressing Health Disparities in Puerto Rico
"Of the continental US, the covert 19 pandemic is happening as the push for social justice continues. Natasha Alford is a journalist for the Gri Oh, and Pulitzer Center grantee. And she traveled to Puerto Rico shortly after the island's political protests in 2019 to understand another uprising taking place on the land What she calls the Afro Latino revolution. She joins us now. Welcome to hearing now. Thank you so much for having me, Tanya. Yes. And Natasha. What? Through lines? Are you saying between the Afro Puerto Rican community and what's happening in other parts of the country in the protests for racial justice? How does PR's history and culture Play out in the construction of race and racial experiences. Yes. Oh, there's so much to unpack there. But you know, the first thing I'll say is after the death of George Floyd, we immediately saw protest. We saw vigils and we saw memorials in honor of his life right in Puerto Rico, So obviously there was something that really resonated with people there. And specifically in Afro Puerto Rican communities. Now often times when people think of Afro Puerto Rican Sze, they may associate them with just one community. One town one neighborhood. I'll give you an example. Louisa has a really high proportion of residents who identify as Afro Puerto Rican. But the reality is that there are black people everywhere in Puerto Rico. It's just his divers as the United States. And so we saw that what was happening in the continental US was really resonating. It's resonating because there are similarities. What have you found in terms of health disparities without for Latinos and other types of disparities? Do they mirror what we see in the continental United States? Yes, I think that there are parallels, and it makes sense, right? Because well, you think about the history of Puerto Rico. There was slavery there as well. Right? Even though our societies may be different, you know, we think of the continental US we think of segregation and Jim Crow. Ah, lot of people just don't know the history of Puerto Rico and and slavery and the aftermath of how it played out. They often assume that Puerto Rico is a Nyland of racial harmony that it is a racial utopia. The phrase La Grande Familia, Kenya. Is about being one Puerto Rican family. But a lot of people will tell you that that's actually not the case. And so with health disparities, one thing that researchers have found is that darker skinned Puerto Rican Sze report poorer health outcomes. And some of the reasons for that are social treatment. The communities in which they live in are sometimes poorer exposure to social stressors. There's ah great research paper that was written that came out of the University of Puerto Rico by Jose Caravaggio, Quito and S. R Boudreau and they talked about Changing the way that we measure those disparities by changing the language we use. So we often think of black and white in the United States, but they did a study where they asked people to list the shade of their skin tone. When they did that they actually got more information that showed what those health disparities were, and the key was using local language and understanding of race rather than trying to impose the continental US is language when it comes to race. Of course,

"l. floyd" Discussed on The Sean Hannity Show
"This is a great conversation. Okay, so so in. One area it's predominantly, African American in another area perhaps is predominantly white. Why don't we start churches and say okay well? If that's the case and there's neighborhood of that neighborhood, WanNa we. You know. Why don't we well come visit your church one week. You come visit. Mind would not be helpful man. Dr Michael Emerson Rice on this. You should have him on a talks about The churches being divided by race. It's a great idea if you if you in our city the beginning of the Church and our city in Houston It was one of the methodist would've I get here. At first Methodist Church in First Methodist Church they had the white worshipers were in the in the in the front, the black worshipers or the slaves were in the back. Eventually, they split off. two churches, the slave church, and then they had the first Methodist Church that search now is is has has AVOC- I believe, and so when you when you think about that we have typically been divided in white and black ever since slavery, even before slavery and so W- you see this faultlines of. Of tension. In breaker. But, couldn't we? COULDN'T WE START THERE? If you believe in the religious side because you, you agree with by observation, you know we need to start there. I think we start. There would probably be a pretty good. Start Right now. We'd we definitely need to start and then, and then you build out from there. And then we had three more churches here here there and everywhere, and then we all get to know each other, and we have this common denominator of faith. Hopefully that could unite the country. I'd like to see that. What do you think it would take for? Maybe white churches in particular to give up power and say hey, let's let's unify these churches. Listen I. Personally now I'm going to admit something. I shouldn't admit pastor. I don't get to go to church that much, because I'm so busy. But. I would love that idea harper. I think it's a great idea. We. We have a commonality here and it's not just a commonalities the commonality. It's our humanity coming together. We raise the conscious of a nation. If if the church who is the cost of the nation is divided. The one thing that this case is not, it's not Republican Democrat. It's not liberal conservative this this is universal agreement, except for maybe a few lunatics in their underwear keyboard warrior psychos. Everybody agrees this should never have happened. Everybody saw. Everybody is shocked by this and the human issue. This is an all right, but I gotta look one night. Hold over a few minutes then we'll get to people's calls because I I like this conversation Pastor and we do me one favor to please send my thoughts and prayers to George Floyd's family, and then the prayers for my audience to them..

I mean you had abrasions over his face. He can't do that for eight minutes and expect anybody to live. It's not going to happen. So I know that my my sense as my instructor. That he works with police a lot because the training is inadequate inadequate. And we have lifelong education, right? We all want to always continue to challenge ourselves. Read more and I spent a lot of time researching the history of this country, and and the founding principles and our framers, and our founders, and you know explaining what is at stake when I say live, free or Die American the world on the brink, because that history rich with knowledge that we need to fundamentally understand. If, we are going to succeed as a country. If we're going or we're going to go down this pit, have another chapter that I built about socialism, and it's utter failure everywhere and anywhere it is. It is tried I thought you know when you do start doing deeper deeper dives, which is always hard to do when you know cranking out four hours airtime day, you know, I'm just like I'm reminded of things that I had forgotten and then I'm learning new things that. That wow, I didn't know that it happened specifically. I didn't know that it happens nuggets. That's what research is about and a great team of researchers, helping me with the book, and it's all there, and then we deal with what is at stake. What are the differences? What's play here? Okay? The new green deal versus free market capitalism. It's that profound you know getting rid of the life blood of the world's economy economies. That's oil and gas. That's a bad idea. All of these ideas, they have our job killing. You know we're GonNa have what guaranteed government everything I put lay out the numbers. How much that would cost and not only. Is it going to be like every other socialist experiment? It's all GonNa fail now, but back to the police now let me just explain some as what we were talking about today with my martial arts instructor and I did my training today did an hour and a half today. Outside. Training, so we're not doing as much contact as we usually do. Social distancing training. A lot of you know I do a lot more setups lot more pushups a lot more core, but then we're working specifically on some some situational defense tactics. And in the case of George Floyd. When he's handcuffed. Let's say he did resist which he did not that I can see. But it wouldn't matter. WHO's you had him under full control once you have the handcuffs on.

We don't have a problem denouncing. Violence Mr Governor. We don't have a problem Mr Mann denouncing Luton, but it seems like some in the criminal justice system have a problem looking at a tate and knowing there's probable cause, and it takes a long time for you to go and do what you see that you need to do. Reality. Chief Ed really back. Ole Out. Or hundred value and He went back to day and he mentioned the mayor the mayor with air. Governor there. Amy Klobuchar their. Senator Amy Yeah. Lot of a lot of people. Are Getting. Jackson each man. Lou How to have no. And bring it home. Look giving getting. The four officers took some time. But I I want. I think what was happening here. which doesn't happen in our case. Please know that Oh I. Think was happening here. I think an even if they bought the charges when they bought the charges against the other three. Then up the charges. Against Him Derek because I was interviewing crump earlier today on showed I was taping, he said that third degree manslaughter. Third degree murder came. Get you. Third degree murder came. Get you. Up to twenty years in prison all. Five years probation. that's why they were fighting so hard to get to second degree murder, because no matter what happens in the second degree murder you when you get convicted. You gotTa go do time. And so that happened, and then the other officers were body and for about a abating. Aiding, and abetting abating, manning, aiding and abetting, aiding and abetting, because they ate it, and so he explained on the show I was doing how the pressure on the man's longs from the weight of the other officers. was crushing his Windpipe, and then he bought all material with autopsy and everything I. think that's a very very strong case here. And I would be stunned and in dry. Oh, it's. Dry. But we've. We've seen drive her. Yeah, we've been, but I don't think they can come back with a a an innocent verdict because the white. Peer Pressure. In, the white community is a little bit. Now. Because these. Little white kids coming home from a protest. Look, Mommy. They shot me in my stomach with a rubber bullet. That's never been had before. They're having these conversations, 'cause they push in white girls down protested. Day knocking white dues over garbage. Now. They got not for the first time. They're seeing this. No wait. A minute I had my hands up. My hands were up. This kept on the plea. Why did you push me my hands up because they don't give a damn? We we had I hands up and got our brains splattered across the side. So. That is different now and I don't think that they'll be able to bring back in nothing, but a guilty plea, because they know if they bring back simply all these cities going back up and five again. Reverend Al Tell the story about this little girl who tugged on his jacket coca soup. A little. He turned around. It was a little white girl. He says she couldn't have been more than about eleven years old and he turned around, and he looked, and she held a perfect and said black lives matter. Little guest eleven years old. He says she couldn't have been more than that. So you know I mean, and that's where this stuff has to be taught. It has to be taught in the home. You know yeah, anti-racism. It has to start there. the next to memorial service will be tomorrow in North Carolina where George Floyd was born, and then finally on Monday there will be a service and a public viewing in Houston..

Floyd we're GONNA talk about. The charges were upgraded. I'm very curious to hear This this is I. Don't know if it was an andrew was wrong or something, but we'll see what that was. We've got the insurrection act. We've. I wish you know if we broadcast this. Back to our twenty sixteen selves. We're just be like yeah, no, that sounds right. That's exactly what we all thought would happen. Insurrection Act. Curfews roaming militias. let's see and then we going to do something a little special today, which is with there is so much, and we love our patrons so much that we're. We're GONNA. Do Extra for patrons. It's it's There's just too much to contain, so we're. We're GONNA. We'll do a little lightning round bonus segment for everybody. Because you know, we're not trying to hide any information from anybody, but then we'll do a extra patron deep dive. into these issues, so it's Rod. Rosenstein and we've got a judge Sullivan Update and also you may have seen a lot of people are posting something about dovy trump. Slash Epstein like Some sort I don't even know what the conspiracy theory is, but we're going to do little debunking of that, so that's the episode I know Andrew We've got announcement or two before we get to it. Yeah, two two quick things I am very very excited. On Tuesdays. Episode we're going to have an interview with Gabe Roth from fixed the court, and he has uncovered a through diligent journalistic exercise, interesting information about our favorite judicial nominee Justin Walker. Who I will point out shamefully as of today has been advanced out of the Senate. Judiciary Committee on a party line. Vote He is trump's nominee for the US court of Appeals for the DC circuit and his criteria include. Having had his ass kicked in a debate by me and that's it. It's it's bad. Clearness, no matter how good a judicial nominee they still could have had their asses kicked. Tourists in a debate say. I'll be fair art. At and and and you, you pointed this out to me and and I think it is really really important. Much of this show is going to be focused on the the aftermath of of George Floyd and It would be irresponsible for us not to talk about it, and not to talk about trump invoking the insurrection act of eighteen. Oh seven and all that other stuff. But. It is worth reminding that this is part of trump's plan to distract from the fact that he is an incompetent game show host who has mismanaged an epidemic. That is still raging in this country, and so a We're not GonNa let him fully district and be like if you are participating in protests and I and I. You know much of the peaceful protests that I have seen Involve people practicing appropriate social distancing techniques? Please be safe. Okay of we still have a pandemic region and and. The fact that it hasn't been appropriately dealt with that. We've had insufficient testing and tracking and tracing it all. Yes, Right Donald Trump is incompetent at that. We will not forget that but. Take care of yourself man. So, yeah, yeah, it is I. Mean it's off I I wish obviously I wish we weren't in the pandemic. To say because it would be way better to be able to demonstrate and protest and all this stuff and not worry about that, but I do love the attempted Gotcha where it's like. Oh, why see when we wanted a haircut then it wasn't okay to protest, but now that police are executing unarmed black men off all the sudden throw test is okay. It's like yeah, no. Nothing nothing like what the argument. Protesting that you couldn't force someone to get corona virus to give you a haircut. Yes, that was stupid. Yes. We agree case closed. Okay, let's get to our show. Good reminder there. Let's get to our first segments.

It was unplanned unwritten. He's clearly shell-shocked. And for me personally. I didn't see it until Sunday and since I had avoided ever seeing the video of George Floyd's murder. Hearing Killer Mike. Was the first time that I was like had been moved to tears, and I only knew what you had told me in the certainly, I hadn't even it described as in detail as you did today for the podcast hearing that he called out for his mom was feeling for me and I absolutely. Have heard a a more awful. Thing in my entire life and his mom I mean I. can't I can't I can't talk about it so basically by the end of the speech I was crying is I didn't even listen to this time again. You guys. I walked away, and I will ever listen to it again. I have to actively. Every hour. Stop myself from from thinking about. Thinking about George Floyd just thinking about the whole thing it's. So horrific so. But the thing is, is that for every George Floyd? There are thousands more have died wrongfully, and horrifically at the hands of police and hundreds of thousands have been attacked and abused, and didn't die like Rodney King and we all know the famous ones, and of course seeing the floyd video reminds us all of the different cell phone footage. We've seen over the last thirty years since Rodney King in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two of cops attacking wrongfully shooting unarmed Black Man George Floyd made me think of one I saw. Of A black woman in a police car, saying she couldn't breathe and I'm sure many of you like brandy immediately thought of Trayvon Martin, the Gut wrenching heartbreaking poster child for the systematic racism and dangerous class injustice in this country, but less people think these incidents are few, and far between and that the majority of cops in the majority of cities are good. Trump said right well. Everybody says a not a few bad apples. We've heard it over and over again from trump administration people that ninety nine point nine point, nine percent of the police forces good well, we compile the smallest of recent high profile cases to show the scope and the seriousness of this epidemic in two thousand nine, a twenty two year. Old Guy was shot on New Year's Day in San Francisco Transit. Cops were called after a fight broke out on the train. It's called Bart if you're familiar. Bay Area Transit Bay area. googlers. One police officer need Oscar grant who was unarmed in the head, and then forced him to lie face down on the platform while he was being held in the prone position, another officer shot him in the back. The incident was well-documented on a ton of different cell phone tape since it was New Year's Eve and if you haven't seen it, you should watch the movie fruitvale station it's. Beyond and gave us Michael Jordan, so the officer who killed him, was sentenced to two years in prison, of which he served eleven months in l., A. County protective custody because he was released, there was hundreds of cell phone video showing that he was unarmed, not resisting arrest and was shot. Point blank in the back executed, and the officer served eleven months, and that in and of itself is rare for him to even serve time at all. In Two Thousand Fifteen six Baltimore police officers beat a black man to death in a police van Freddie Gray was unarmed and already in custody. All six police officers were acquitted in Maryland and the US Justice Department. Never charge them federally at all. So, there's two things that happen in these situations. These officers are there could be as with any murderer you particularly. If you work for the justice system, you can be charged by your state, and then the federal government has the opportunity to charge you and many of these cases. Any that you hear from.

"Home the son of an Atlanta city police officer. My cousin. Is Atlanta police officer. And MY NIECE POINT OPS and I got a lot of love and respect for police officers down to the regional eight police officers in Atlanta that even after becoming police had to dress in a YMCA. Because, white officers didn't want to get dressed wigmakers. And here we are eighty years later. I watched a white officer assassinate of black man. And I. Know That Tore Your heart out. And I. Know It's crippling. And I have nothing positive to say. In this moment. 'cause I don't WanNa be here. But I'm responsible to be here because. Wasn't just Dr King and people dressed nicely. Who marched and protested to progress this city and so many other cities. It was people like my grandmother. People like my aunts and uncles were members the. P.. And in particular Reverend James Orange. Mrs Alice Johnson. And Reverend love. Who we just lost last year. So I'm duty bound to be here to simply say. That it is your duty not to burn your own house down for anger with an enemy. It is your duty. To fortify your own house so that you may be a house of refuge. In Times of organization, and now is the time to plot. Plan strategize organize and mobilize. It is time to beat up prosecutors. You don't like it the voting booth. It is time to hold me oriole offices, accountable chiefs and deputy chiefs. Atlanta's not perfect, but we a lot better than we ever were and we a lot better than cities are. Mad As hail. I woke up wanting to see the world burned down yesterday plus tired of. Black men. He casually put his knee on a human beings nick for nine minutes as he died like a zebra in the clutch of a lion's jaw, and we watch it like murder porn over and over again, so that's children are burning to the ground. They don't know what else to do. It is responsibility of us. To make this better right now. We don't WanNA. See One office to charge. We want to see four offices prosecuted. And sentenced. We don't WanNA. See targets, Barney. We want to see the system that sets up for systemic racism burnt to the ground. And as I sit here. In Georgia. Home Stevens Georgia. Former vice president of the confederacy. White may get that lull. Fundamental laws stated that white were naturally superior race, and the confederacy was built on a cornerstone. It's called a cornerstone speech. The cornerstone speech that blacks would always be subordinate. That officer believed that speech because he killed. That may unlike an emmy. In this city officers have done horrendous things and they have been prosecuted. The cut different. In this city you can fight over fifty restaurants owned by black women. I didn't say minority and I didn't say women of Color. So after you burn down your own home, what do you have left, but you're in Ash? CNN! Tiered, get a great thing. I love CNN I. Love Cartoon Network, but I'd like to say to CNN right now. Karma's mother stop feeding fear and anger every day. Stop Making people feel so fearful. Give them hope. I'm glad they only took down the sign and deface the building, and they not killing human beings. Policemen did. I'm glad that they only destroy some brick and mortar, and they didn't rip a father from son. They didn't rip AFA. Son From a mother. Like the police did. When a man gaels for his mother, interesting pain and she's dead. Here's essentially yelling. Please God. Don't let it happen to me and we watched it. So, my question for us on the other side of this camera is after it mearns. Will we be left with chart, or would we rise like a phoenix out of the ashes that Atlanta has always done? Well we use this as a moment to say that we will not do what other cities have done. In fact, we will get better than we've been. We got good enough to destroy cash bonds. Don't have to worry about going to jail I'm got smart enough to decriminalize. Marijuana How smart going to be in the next fifteen or twenty years to keep us ahead of this curve so much like when South Africa's suffered apartheid. You had andy and other politicians that could make sure that. Atlanta's coca. Cola, we love you. But if you don't pull out of south, Africa, we're GONNA leave. We're not going to drink coca cola anymore. Coca Cola jumped on their side. Apartheid ended, so we have an opportunity now. Because a man I don't have any good advice, but what I can tell you that if you sit in your homes tonight instead of burning your home to the ground. You have time to properly Platt plan. strategize and organize mobilizing effective weight. In two of the most effective way I taking your, but to the compute and making sure you fill out the census so that people know who you are where you are. The next thing is making sure you excellent exercise your political bully power in going to local elections and beating up the politicians that you don't like. You gotTA prosecutors Sancho partner to jail. You know what was bullshit. Put a new prosecutor now zero election. Do you want a different Senate as more progressive, their pulse marijuana through? Now's the time to do that, but it is not time guard down your own. I love and I respect you. I hate. I don't have more to say I hate. I can't fix it in a snap I hate Atlanta's not perfect for as good as we all. But we have to be better dennis moment. We have to be better than burning down our own homes because if we lose Atlanta.

"Okay I watched the after the first night. The mayor of Atlanta got up and gave a speech and I I stood up and cried out so here she is, she's giving. She's basically talking to everyone in her city in Atlanta to particularly the looters and the people causing chaos. Let me just speak was happening here today. Above everything else. I am a mother. I, am a mother. To. Four black children in America. One of whom is eighteen years old. When I saw the murder of George Floyd. I heard like a mother would hurt. On yesterday when I heard. There were rumors about bowel protests in Atlanta deal with a mother would do I. Call My son and I said where are you? I said I cannot protect. You and black boys shouldn't be out today. So you on out. Concern me out care about where we are in America. I wear this each and every day and I pray over my children each and every day. So what I see happening on the streets of Atlanta is not Atlanta. This is not a protest. This is not in the spirit of Martin Luther King Junior. This is chaos. A protest has purpose. When Dr King was assassinated. We did do this to our city. So if you love this city. This city that has had a legacy of black mayors and black police chief. And people who care about this city where more than fifty percent of the business owners in Metro Atlanta are minority business owners. If. You care about this city. Then go home. and. Pray that somebody like Beasley. Will come and talk to you and give you some instructions on what the protests should look like and how you affect your weight change in America. This police chief. Made a video yesterday. PULL IT UP ON YOUTUBE Where she said she was appalled to watch the murder of George Floyd. This woman did that. You're not honoring the legacy of Martin. Luther King Junior and the civil rights movement. Do not protest in anything. Running out were brown liquor in your hands breaking windows in the city. See I kill killer Mike own half the west side so when you burn down the city, you're burning down our community. If you want change in America, go registered vote. Show up at the polls on June ninth. Do it in. November. That is the change we need in this country. You are disgrace in our city. You are disgracing the life of George Gordon. Every other person who has been killed in this country. We are better than this. We're better than this. As a city, we are better than this as a country vote. Vote vote vote. Vote vote when she said protests has have has purpose. I thought God. Yeah us. We are the chaos and there's anger. There's frustration and there's because we're just. We're just expressing. We're expressing and God knows in the last ten or twenty years. There's nothing better than this generation. Does this just express themselves and show our feelings? Matter and everybody's fucking. You know sensitivity, and whatever matters does everyone's feelings on the matter of boobs different? Never boobs vine. But. There is no purpose necessarily. Mean that in the sense of. You know the purpose is to cause to to be listened to the purposes to be heard the purposes to shine a light on I. Get that I. Get it, but we would. We want to start hearing the tangible literal purpose William. We need need direction. And, there's there just aren't the civil rights leaders that there was before. Lead I mean there's not even like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to to lead. A boycott to lead boycotts, they lead that kind of stuff that we just don't have those kinds of leaders now in that direction, but I do think for those people and it was organized crime and it was and I'm not saying that it wasn't wrong, but. Our government is organized crime that Police Department that. George Floyd that's organized crime and the Catholic Church that's organized crime crimes, being committed in those institutions, and then it's being systematically hidden and ignored and and transferred to another district over and over and over and over again. This is crime fighting crime so now you think. Protest with the purpose. That's true. Those people were protesting the systematic racism and racial injustice and social injustice that lives in our justice system. However, the people looting are fighting a fucking class divide and a lack of opportunity, and the fact that they are constantly being arrested for their petty crimes. While the crimes in the Catholic Church are ignored the crimes at. At the top of government, Arcnord the crimes in the LAPD and every. PD are ignored. That's what that to them. That was protesting with the purpose. It was like watch this. If we decide to turn the fuck around and turn on you, what will you do nothing so at the same press conference in Atlanta where we heard the clip from the mayor? Killer Mike. WHO's a rapper and like? The mayor said a business owner in Atlanta spoke the same press conference in the midst of the crazy writes in his speech went viral incidentally killer.

So his entire body camping. He now can't move and they've already put the handcuffs on him so. Why you ask! Are they continuing to keep him on the ground for what is just under nine minutes? Restraint. He's now restrained. They're not putting him back in the car. They're not doing anything but keeping him on the ground. Because at seven minutes, he had died. So for two minutes and forty five seconds the cop with his knee Nina's, his neck was basically holding down a dead person. A. You know we all saw it, it's. It's you know how many of us have seen murder? Record. I've never see I've never seen that before. This was A. A brutal murder, this is a brutal murder. I just I just need a minute. I don't blame you. It's horrifying and it's so disturbing and sad and infuriating and I don't. I shocking. It's shocking. So, the peaceful protests were organized and spread via social media. There'd be getting around three or four PM. While the police in whichever city were managing the crowds by the way, not socially distance behalf of people, not even in masks I don't think many people concerned about Karoon viruses put it that way, so different groups would go to different areas and start fires, so there's like the one part where they're protesting where they're just like black lives matter holding up signs I can't breathe like basically demonstrating, and then you know people with more of like a just a higher stakes demonstration agenda would go to a different area unlike light a car on fire or something such as. Or they spray paint like those same messages like I can't breathe and black lives matter things like that. There's a million likes repainting messages. They weren't just vandalizing. It was all messaging and demonstrating. In the midst of these things. An organized group of looters and I'm talking about in every city. It was an organized plan when whichever city it is whether it's Atlanta La. Minneapolis had Philadelphia had them Chicago. An organized group is now in a different area. Smashing windows and burglarize. Stores but The burglaries and looting and smashing of windows and was just. I watched at one point. I mean it was like flipping. You could've had fifty TVs on. Because of the different cities and direct looting and different and I'm sorry that I'm one of the people who had the the message I mean that was part of you could say that. The looters aren't part of the message, but it is kind of the message. Message is quite there. which is were taken your shit fuck you. However, you want to sit. However, it is for you. It's all a part of the message were burning this shit to the ground? Fuck you. It's all their. Attention, but it's also. Is Riveting shocking, and I've definitely vacillated back, and forth from loving it and I love seeing the burning of the police cars, and they exploded a police station, and it's just like that'll. That's that's a message, but yeah, when you see a liquor store like small mom and pop places get vandalized and broken into, and you think you you know. By and it's hard for anyone to watch. People's businesses where we're all were not monsters and we don't want to watch. Windows get smashed. We don't feel comfortable watching violence. Don't feel comfortable watching theft, but what you have to try and remember and I know it's hard first of all. Try Not for everyone. You know I'm terrible with empathy. Okay, what would I do is go for the underdog into knowing degree so. I try not to fucking stand on a moral high ground when I'm a cesspool of. Should he morals and I know that those people who truly know except for the ones who have mobbed and and beat up. We saw like like an older man. Get like mobbed, and we've seen violence anyone that's beating up another person that's different, but when you see people young guys young girls, we saw every race running into a store and stealing something and running out like those people aren't monsters. They're just have a look like we're having fun. They're trying to get the come up and see like sorry. Yeah, like this is what happens when a when there's a class divide to the point of just like it's being ignored, and it's getting worse and the opportunities for these people and US are getting smaller and smaller. We have less opportunity than we have right now. In Two thousand twenty than we had in two thousand ten and then. Then there was a fucking depression in two thousand ten was freaking. The economy was in the trash in two thousand ten, and in that we had less than two thousand ten. We didn't you know who thousand and it's getting worse and worse until it's going to be like there is no middle class, and that is what's happening, and it's just like this. What happens Walter when you fuss? Stranger in the ass this what happens and I watched it and I was like. Got Some posh should put some golden gramps some pop. Because I had at the time of my mother fucking, I was like sorry by sneaker store. Sorry about your secrets are sorry about your hot topic chain, but we did watch U haul vans.

It's time for the Shitty Shitty Week in Corona Guess What Okay all. I have to say as Karuna who does even go to this skill? Because this week we saw the real epidemic in this country, a deadly cancerous abuse of power. It can be racist. It can be sexist. It can be classes to can even be an often is religious, but whatever the motivation the abuse starts at the highest levels of government and American institutions and trickles down to effect every working class person. person in this country and to be clear real quick when we say working class we on this podcast. We mean everyone in America who has to work in order to survive. They don't come from money. They don't have rich families. I should say we. We don't come from money. We don't have rich families. We work a job that pays us and we need it in order to survive. That is what we count. As working class well this week, working class people who have arguably been the hardest hit by the economic effects of the pandemic. Rioted for six nights straight in over twenty major cities, including Atlanta Bakersfield Boston Chicago Columbus, Dallas des Moines. DENVER DETROIT WASHINGTON DC Houston L. A., LOUISVILLE MEMPHIS MINNEAPOLIS new. York City, Phoenix. Portland Sacramento San Francisco and Van Jose. That's like five or six cities in. Each of the riots in each of the cities began as peaceful protests against the obvious and ongoing abuse of power and systemic racism that has taken over our justice system from the racist, sexist religious Republican. Just that trump and Senate majority leader Mitch McDougal Dushi McConnell are stacking into every courtroom to the racist sexist religious Republican asshole cops being hired every day. Our justice system only helps you if you're white man or a rich man and this week, a racist abuse of power coincided with a class dividing pandemic, and all hell broke loose I mean. Watch it burn. Wow, you'll the bird watching bird? Bernie's should have been standing there with his head above it being. Burn. So hopefully you've you missed the news hopefully. I really hope you did. Last Monday, in Minneapolis, a black guy named George Floyd was day drunk and bought a pack of cigarettes at a liquor store with a fake twenty dollar bill I mean. Put on mccollum Brandy 'cause. I'm not I mean especially. Right now. Other than buying cigarettes. Literally Stolen Whether, it's accidentally or not accidentally out of self checkout at the supermarket have literally stolen. Shit Oh, that's not accident. Exactly so come kill me, apparently, sir, I mean. God I had a counterfeit bill that looked real I'm using that and talking about tonight. So, Floyd had lost his restaurant job. Because Corona up like many many people in America he was broken depressed and trying to get through his God day, he refused to return the cigarettes and the clerk called the cops and the cops found floyd sitting in his car around the corner from the store. They pulled him out of the car, handcuffed him and restrain him on the ground. An officer named Derek. Shelvin who, by the way was working with eighteen prior open complaints filed against him as a cop they were open, had been closed, or they weren't. Taking care of they were still being looked at. Eighteen prior complaints put his knee on Floyd's neck for seven straight minutes until he died I'm assuming most of you have seen the cell phone footage of the event, but for those of you who haven't I couldn't watch it either and don't even know if I can get through this now, but I'm going to have mammal describe it like a human being. Because she saw it and was traumatized to say the least called me at home. It's after solely traumatized. It's it's whole. okay, basically what you see, there's two different views. Pulled out of the car. There's also some weird shit going on in the car, which is really don't know what it is, but you know they're beating them up in there, and then they pull them out of the car. There's that one squat. Fuck who's watching the whole thing not doing anything keeping an eye out. He's the billy Bush of the group. He's the Cavanaugh the group. He doesn't get in the game. He had six. Six prior open complaints that guy. Four four police brutality like horses for your like. So then they put him on the ground. There's four cops now on top of George Floyd.

"You have sort of firm level. Bargaining rights to the postal workers has some reasonably strong unions. They have good contract for themselves and so talking about shifting it into a private sector or being competed with ups and Federal Express is in effect a lot away of debating the Labor Relations paradigm sort of to the back door and comparing it to the situation in Sweden or Germany or these other kind of a strong central bargaining countries. I think winds at missing a lot of what drives the argument. Rich the context in which we're having this conversation about the post office and where the president has you know after more than three years in office finally really got in control of the post office with the majority of the appointments on the board that oversees it deployment of a new postmaster general. Who is an ally of his? Is it that the president has this fixation on the rates that Amazon? Pays For Package Shipping. And there's been a debate I think You know I don't WanNa get into the technical details but I think there's been misinterpretation of some research about how much it actually costs the post office to deliver a package. But it's clear that the president's interest here is he doesn't like Jeff bezos. He's mad about things that are published in the Washington Post which is owned by Amazon founder. Jeff Bezos and it's part of this pattern that we've seen of the president trying to use the regulatory power of the of the Federal Government to punish people he perceives his enemies. You know he doesn't like CNN coverage so he wants to try to block the at and T. Time Warner merger We've seen just this week. This purported executive order on Social Media Moderation because he's upset about these labels that twitter has put on certain tweets of his saying that their content is misleading. And it really seems to me like something that that should bother conservatives more than it does conservatives are supposed to be the rule of law on a level playing field for markets and here we have the president using these powers like a toy to you know to to to punish companies that he's mad at. Yeah I think as his threats against Amazon and his inveighing against Amazon or some of the worst things he's said obviously there. There's a lot of competition on that list. And if we want to transition over the twitter thing I mean there's this episode last week is just one of the worst examples of trump's misgovernance. You know he he tweets out these Horrible and malicious and false things about Joe Scarborough allegedly being involved in the death of a young woman in one of his district's offices when he was a congressman. There's understandably a firestorm about this. Twitter feels compelled to do something and then fact checks kind of weirdly Another trump series of tweets about Nail imbalance in the risk of fraud. I think this was mistake on the part of twitter. I think it's kind of a morass. They shouldn't get into the the fact checking a business. But then trump you know all rush galloping off in all directions wants to issue an executive order pushing back against this That in my view is Absolutely the wrong policy direction towards giving regulators more say over these social media companies and it is less likely meaningless and forcible so it. It's just this this whole national psychodrama That the president's dragged just through For no good reason except for he was very upset about what he was seeing on on morning joe every morning and wanted to say the most vile thing he could about the host of the Program. Christine the the thing. That's one thing that's sort of weird to me about these moves. The president has made with regard to various companies is that there are ideological arguments that some people in the Republican Party. Josh Holly the senator from Missouri being the most identifiable one have been making about you know. Conservatives should want more regulations on certain kinds of big companies that there should be more scrutiny of the actions of big tech companies that maybe we should have more antitrust scrutiny around mergers and so. I think that you know maybe there are people on the left. Who would like to be able to find a way to do? Some sort of bipartisan thing. About more regulation but the problem is that the way the president's deploying these tools you know he doesn't want to block he didn't lock Eighteen Time Warner merger because he's concerned about market power in the you know in the in the broadcast television industry. It's because he's mad about CNN. It doesn't form a basis for any sort of policy agenda right. That's true I mean this is kind of the problem I mean. This is the problem with trump best president trump's governance style such as it is He's not interested in policy agendas he's not interested in creating legislation for the good of the country. He's not necessarily interested in trying to regulate businesses so that they run more effectively or serve the American people better He's interested in pursuing his own grudges. His own bizarre fascinations His own interests in ills. That's the only reason why he's talking about this. Sort of social media regulation so that he can talk more. I wish the president would bring the same energy to save morning. The one hundred thousand Corona virus deaths that he does to morning the fact that somebody said that allied he said was in fact perhaps maybe ally and people should research it Matt Before you can you discern any policy agenda around the sort of you know the the president complains about what's called section two thirty. This is the part of the Communications Decency Act basically protects platforms from. If you know if twitter doesn't right what's on twitter of somebody else posts on twitter. You can't hold twitter liable for defamation or variety of other things that people might. You'd miss use twitter to do and it's what allows social media to have sort of the the free for all that you have there. Is there a reform agenda around that if people are upset about the basically twitter gets to make money even as other people go out there and do things like you know tell lies about Joe Scarborough Because it seems that a lot of what I hear about this from conservatives is incoherent it's basically they're mad about section two thirty but then they they want Th they're mad about too much moderation and yet if you take away those legal protections I think there's even more pressure on companies like twitter To to monitor what people are saying on their platform and delete things that they're concerned about because then twitter has to worry about you. Know what if we get sued because the President Defame Somebody on our platform. Yeah I mean it would really depend what you've replaced it with and I think you know conservative senators who have enjoyed tweeting about. This have not been really clear. What is one? I think coherent idea that I know Congress considered when they were working on the communications decency. Act would be to say that these services have to operate as common carriers right like you can't sue the phone company if somebody uses telephones to slander you and you can't sue your ISP comcast whatever something like that. The ideas they're just transmitting bits. And so you could say will. Twitter wants to have these liability protections. It would need to go back to the sort of pure reverse chronological opt in feed no suggestions no algorithm editing. Things like that. I don't think that's a crazy idea exactly But what you would be talking about is sort of crippling the social media industry quat industry right by forcing them to be much more sort of flat and less engaging than they currently are or. You could try to come up with something where a- As you were speculating. They have to moderate much more aggressively. Which I really don't think is what conservatives would like because it's like Donald Trump is frequently slandering people on twitter He doesn't want to be shut down for that reason but he could be if you made them more strictly liable and then last you have what I think is the real answer. Which is that. They don't want any particular policy change..

"Perhaps it's perhaps you could call it aesthetic because it doesn't necessarily deal with a specific piece of legislation in mind But it is a worldview in worldviews are something that a president brings to the country We're looking for a worldview in understanding that actually things fundamentally are not. Okay that actually fundamentally big changes need to be made That fundamentally there is something wrong with the way that the United States is working That the government is fundamentally not doing the job that it is meant to do to protect and serve the people of the state a progressive aesthetic or even a progressive idea would be acknowledging that something needs to change. Something needs to change for the better. Something needs to change soon. Something needs to change perhaps now And Yeah maybe that's not what Joe Biden is bringing to. The Table Biden is saying to be on the level of affect and message and aesthetics that he can replace Donald Trump and bring back the best in America right and that appeals to a certain set of people who feel like the country gone off the rails under trump and what I think more left wing people want to hear is something like the underlying foundations of American society were written long before trump came along. And we're going to build a whole new house right and in that sense. Biden is clearly a moderate right. He's going to try to bring back some of the excesses trumpism and sort of re Polish America and make it shiny new again but not fundamentally alter so Christine in that context. What do you make of the coalition that Biden put together to win this primary? He won the Democratic primary electorate. He did especially well with African American. Voters You laid out earlier in this show. Some reasons that African Americans have to feel that the system of policing United States has been unjust and and unaccountable for decades Some of the Progressive Policy Agenda Items. I think you can make a strong case that African Americans stand to to disproportionately benefit from structural changes in certain aspects of the system. So what do you make of African? American voters apparently having looked at that on average and said you know our preference is the candidate who's promising the more continuity message the more return to normal message rather than the big structural. Change Message. Yeah I think that that's actually a sort of different question I think that African Americans in the United States For reasons that I probably don't need to explain on the show at this point Don't necessarily have reason to believe or expect That a huge wave of progress is going to overrun the country and suddenly make everything better for them. And so I think that African Americans are used to a pragmatic voting style at this point. It's obvious that Joe Biden would be a better candidate for African Americans than Donald Trump. Who CALLS THEM THUGS And seems to delight in violence in the streets and I think that's why African Americans voted for Joe Biden because he's not donald trump. Let's take a break.

"This is Josh Barrow. You're about to hear my conversation with Christine Emba and rich lowry about the death of George Floyd. We recorded this conversation Friday morning before former. Minneapolis police officer Derek. Shelvin the officers shown in the video killing floyd was arrested and charged with murder and manslaughter. This conversation has been lightly edited. Reflect that news but some references may be outdated. Here's the show this Josh Barrow and welcome to left right and center. You're civilized yet. Provocative antidote to the self contained opinion bubbles dominate political debate. It is the fourth week of May and this week George. Floyd died at the hands of Minneapolis. Police officer in the world saw the incident on video officer. Derek shelvin knelt on Floyd's neck for at least seven minutes during the process of arresting him disregarding his please that he could not breathe floyd's killing drew swift local and global outrage in the city quickly. Fired the four responding officers involved in. Floyd's arrest and death but the city has erupted in protests protests. That of sometimes give way to riots and looting in part due to dissatisfaction with local prosecutors statements that they were still evaluating whether to charge the officers with any crimes Minneapolis. Police even abandoned one of their precinct. Buildings rioters littered on fire. They also briefly arrested a CNN crew. That was reporting on the disorder early Friday morning on Friday afternoon the Hennepin County Attorney who oversees Minneapolis announced. That former officer shaven had been arrested and charged with manslaughter and third degree murder and that they might bring further charges later this week there have also been protests around the country responding. Not just to Floyd's death. But other recent deaths of African Americans under circumstances that reflect the racial inequity of our system of law enforcement notably. Brianna Taylor was shot. Dead in a no knock raid on her home. In Louisville in March and Ahmad Armory was pursued and killed in February by three White Vigilantes. Who said they believed him to be responsible for a burglary in southern Georgia. Armories killers weren't charged until the case drew statewide and national attention to talk about all of that. Let's bring our left right center panel as always. I'm your center. I'm joined by rich lowry. Editor of National Review on the right on the left Christine Emba columnist at the Washington. Post Hello Josh Hi Josh. Christine one thing that sets these events in Minneapolis. Apart from me is I've seen no apparent attempt by the police unions or read public officials to defend the officers actions here but it seems to me that people are for good reason. Skeptical that there will be justice in this case that there will be changes going forward in. Minneapolis and around the country. Yeah I think that's exactly right josh. Actually one of the things that has been interesting to watch in this particular case And a very faint glimmer of hope. Perhaps is the quickness with which Not just government officials but even police chief said beliefs leaders from across the country. leapt to swiftly condemn. What happened in this case that there is video what they saw. I think that a lot of this actually can be attributed to the focus drawn to these events by black lives matter over the past several years In the past you would have in the past even two years ago. I would say you would have seen a police chiefs Closing line government officials standing back and saying that they're you know was not space time to judge what happened. They didn't have enough information now. Perhaps due to pressure from activists due to increase notice being called to the events due to the number videos that are circulating now You are seeing how obvious these events are and people do feel pushed at Brest to actually make statements Alluding to truth that. Said statements are just statements. You know police chiefs government officials can tweet their thoughts and prayers as much as they like But the videos keep coming. We keep seeing this happen And I'm not sure what it's going to take to go from. Wow I'm sorry to actually making the change rich. I think you know the to where the disagreement is in public discourse here and I think you've seen conservatives increasingly seeing you know these incidents says you know as as as a broad problem. The question is how structural the problem is whether these are you know individual incidents where police do things that should be condemned. I could presumably should be prosecuted Or whether they whether people on the right are starting to buy into some of these critiques. You're seeing from the left about this. Being a structural problem about race and policing in America. And if so what what? There is for policymakers to do about that well first of all it. It looks as though there's no excuse for the way. The police conducted this arrest Usually there is. You know it's just a snippet of video you're missing or not I shouldn't say usually but sometimes But this looks pretty clear but Opponent aspect on that we should just let the process played self out the FBI is investigating. let's see what they find an when every fact is is uncovered but it. It looks terrible I am I do not buy into the idea that they're systematic Police racism if you look at police shootings Comprehensively they breakdown pretty clearly by race according to violent crime rates and the the interactions that police have with various suspects of various races so When there's an injustice like seems to occur in Minneapolis by all means throw the book at at the cops but I think the notion that we live in some sort of racist police state is is a lie Christy. Now I WANNA take the two parts of riches answer there. I WanNa talk first about the sort of letting the process play out Which you know I I certainly understand why it would be difficult In a lot of cases for a district attorney to you know come out with charges immediately even in a case where things look obvious. There's you know there are processes that have to be gone through But it seems to me. That's an easier argument to make in a place where people have a high level of trust in government Where they believe that the government will get around to justice. And so you can say to people wait for the process to play itself out. I think that there are good reasons. Why a lot of people in Minneapolis and around the country a lot of African Americans especially do not have that level of trust. And that's that's a problem for you know the the system needs to be adjusted in such a way that people can have that level of trust so those things can work themselves out right exactly and I think actually you probably right in saying a usually because at this point as I think. Iran did just Perhaps two or three weeks ago. This is unusual event Basically there's one of these cases often with video once a week if not more And yes I think you're exactly right. Josh in saying that waiting for the process to play out is not particularly appealing to those who are waiting to see justice because first of all waiting for the process to play out By nature notes that well this is just gonNa take some time..

It's a forty eight page book, whatever. And so I was coerced into painting this book and change this down to accommodate me not having time. And also because my boss said, the book should look like Floyd drawings and I'm an illustrator. So paint paint, like whatever which obliterates the pencil. We wanted the Floyd deflate nece as my boss said to show. And of course it does. And I'm happy now that I did it because getting to hear Richard and Floyd talk about Walt after the meeting was over was like the best part, and we have a piano in our office. And so Richard, what always playing it didn't matter if if he was tied to come in, he plays song, we'd all come under bar cubicles and this Richard do his whole medley of songs. What have you. So now I'm really proud. Good. And. Loyd paid me Floyd paid. You understand. I'm a Disney employee and I didn't get paid. I had my paycheck and he and Richard got paid. I didn't get paid anything. So I told flow, you give me some money. I mean, this is not right. So I made him give me like a thousand dollars you know to and he did, where's the love. Where's? Where's the love. I don't suppose we'll do me any good to say you got paid in goodwill. No, she wanted to cash. Artists don't get what they should get. Are those usually kind of filler short. You know. So I think pay me so I could say the same for writers go into that. You ever want to see the best watch. Harlan Ellison, pay the writer. It teaches you everything you need to know, right? Yep. Yep. In only the way that only the very, very different to Walt Disney Harlan, but magical nonetheless. So you guys recently took a Disney cruise? Yes, that was so much fun. That was so much fun, which which ship you on the dream, the Disney dream. I don't know where. In a big circle. What was cool was bumped us to first class which was a total surprise to us.
