Fresh update on "la brea" discussed on Latino Rebels Radio

"New show as you know we're dropping bonus episodes of la brea which is Series on puerto. Rico that fudo studios of which. I'm a part of wnyc's studios developed. I was just featured on npr codeswitch. This week my story. So i'm super excited but i think we're gonna drop another episode later in the feed after this show but in the meantime i'm super excited to have special guests from los angeles who was part of a us in the black messiah. Which is a movie that i truly enjoyed. Hello guests from los angeles. Say hey guys this is nicolas says are you guys doing good. Thank you for being so nicholas. How would you best describe yourself. And what is your connection to judas in the black messiah so recently i did appear in judo in the black messiah. I played the role of chacha. Jimenez is the leader of a puerto rican activist group that originated in the late sixties called the young lords. It was an honor for me to be a part of the film and represent the latino community. I'm excited to talk to you guys about it. Just super excited and you are enactor right. You studied film at penn state. Yes i am an actor. I studied film and tv at penn state and then Yeah i wasn't sure. If i was you know gonna be enactor at that point. I was just really kind of obsessed with film at that point and yeah i studied economics and you know i kinda wanted to have a fallback but it was after college that you know i was kind of at a crossroads and i decided to give acting a try. And that's when. I started my two year meisner program at the acting studio good for you. Yeah that's a big frigging deals. I just needed to recognize that because you know for people that follow the acting world. That's a prestigious program. So congratulations so you play touch on human as injured us in the black messiah. I love the movie. I thought it was great. And i'm really glad that they mentioned the history of the rainbow coalition and just to see that scene like to see the young lord on screen. I'm still shaking a little bit even if it was like a brief moment but tell me about it. Tell me about the movie. Tell me about the role. I mean you played cha cha jimenez. Who was the founder of the young lords. Who i've i've talked to in the past. I love ceaucescu so tell me about the experience. Well first off. It was a huge honor for me to step in his shoes. I did get to meet cha-cha onset before booking the lay honestly. I didn't really know anything about the young lords in their history and it was a great history lesson for me to be part of the film and you know i just had the best experience meeting him in being on set with everybody. The energy was just off the charts. I was inspired by daniels. Performance and shock king. Is you know the director of the film is one of the coolest guys i ever met. And we were like a family on set and again. It was an honor to play cha-cha and represent the latino community and tell a story that isn't widely known. One thing that cha-cha let me know is that you know there's so much revisionist history about the young lords and the black panthers and yeah. He signed off on on the young lords. Yeah used in the film so you know i. He was excited about you. Know the story come into light. So i can't even explain what this intimates fulfilled me so much as as an artist and you know again meeting cha-cha and it's something they'll cherish for the rest of my life and as puerto rican because you're like me your body kwa pizon yup puerto rican italian. Welcome to the club. I was born in puerto rico. But my mom is bronx italian. So my dad's puerto rican. So it's nice to talk to a fellow buddy pies on you mentioned like he didn't know much about the young lords. What struck you about the organization or just about the history that you discovered so i read the most comprehensive book i think is out there. It's called the young lords of radical history by joanna fernandez. Yeah and that was co bible pretty much to me for anything young lord so i read that book and you know there was no footage of cha-cha back in that time all i had to go off with pictures so in preparing you know i kinda had to study him in just really through pictures and kind of there were some interviews of him when he was older but i wanted to capture him at that moment in time. Obviously so i didn't know much you know the young lords were modeled after the black panther party originated as a street gang to protect each other in chicago. Cha-cha was incarcerated a few times and it was during one of his incarcerations that he read up on malcolm x martin luther king and you know he decided to make the choice to take the group in political direction so after he made that decision he had to get everybody on board to Follow him and he did that. And you know caught. The attention of fred hampton. And you know that's part of the story of how the rainbow coalition yeah was founded and talk to me about that because as a puerto rican. I don't see a lot of you. Know puerto rican symbols on the big screen like real cymbals right because i knowing the history of the young lords. I've followed it. I actually know cha-cha i know a couple of the other. Og young lords at you know. I've talked to them. I've interacted with them. But i've never seen them in a hollywood film. I've never seen a puerto rican flag. i got seen. It was a pretty powerful seen. At least for me as a puerto rican. What about you. Who identifies as puerto rican as well. So what does it mean to you to personally represent someone who in sort of the symbolism of the puerto rican diaspora has spread. You know what i mean. It was an honor and it was surreal. I had a good deal of time to prepare because the initial audition was in september. I sent in a tape to the casting director. And then i didn't end up receiving a call back until november so i just connected to it you know. Kind of from the gecko. And i felt that it was something that i do. Well and i did feel the weight and the responsibility of it Especially meeting cha-cha on being on set with red So the scene that takes place outside the police station that took place actually two days. After fred gives the speech in the church and seeing him make that speech. It was honestly the best acting. You know i've ever seen. And i think i think that gave me a jolt of inspiration because i knew i had to bring it and i know i had to. You know represent for everybody so it was a big responsibility but you know i wanted to meet the challenge where it was and so many people have been reaching out. And they're just you know proud and you know again not a lot of people novi young lords story so you know to carry that torch and do that again. It's something that will remember for the rest of my life. I'm very proud of it. You speak with such reverence about the moment as an actor and i respect that so much because we're you ever.

"Healthy wasn't the most impressive thing in the world. Didn't the best horse in the world but there's there sternly reasonably if he can improve from that effort nike can Potentially up with the best of this this handicap division in twenty twenty one. And now we're gonna move onto the final race and we're gonna look at from last weekend This was the los altos fraternity. No longer grade. One race in depending on who you ask. That's a good thing Considering the winner this this is not a horse. That either of us and really. I don't think a lot of people really think of this very highly in terms of kentucky derby trail. of course. I'm talking about the winter spielberg. Who wanna knows bob over. Doug o'neill's the great one The thing that i will definitely say about spielberg is that you know. He has shown time and time again that he is inferior to better horses in his division being well beaten in the american pharaoh. I think the two horses did finish in front of him in that race. I would rank them if we were to rank the horses in the southern california three year old. Circuits of course are not three-year-olds yet but just saying three year olds because they will be pretty soon spielberg would be behind those horses and obviously behind his much better. On towns stablemate life is good. I don't really think spielberg is going to factor. In terms of any of the points. Races bob baffert has already said he's going to run in the baht. Louis which can get him some kentucky derby points but. I really think that we'll see him his art this year. Kind of take the route that the first half of twenty twenty did for thousand words him winning this race. And then when the bob lewis and then you remember. Thousand words was beaten very badly in the san felipe. i think that's what we could see from spielberg. So maybe he wins another points race. But i really don't think that spielberg is a horse to take seriously going forward on the kentucky retrial. I certainly will not be considering him. A very highly in terms of my rankings for the kentucky derby in honestly.

"We did an episode about an investigation. That led LAPD. Sergeant Dave Mascarenas to dive into the La Brea Tar pits in Los Angeles. It became one of her most popular episodes because the investigation was still happening. There is a lot the LAPD couldn't tell us about the crime. They were investigating since then. We've learned what happened and we wanted to let you know. First here's the original episode deep dive What are you most often diving for looking for weapons or bodies or are basic. Church is for bombs bodies narcotics in evidence. Dave Mascarenas is a sergeant with the LAPD. He's also the supervisor for their underwater dive unit. Where he's been diving for the last. Eighteen years are diving aspect Is Not like what most people think that you go down recreationally and you can see one hundred feet in the waters warm and all that good stuff Our average dive. The waters are cold off our coasts. Who were wearing. You know seven millimeter. Quarter inch wet suits. And most of the time. Our visibility is less than a foot he started scuba diving in highschool performed waterborne operations in the military and then join the LAPD where he's worked in a lot of different units the crash Unit anti-gang unit bike patrol in Hollywood. But no matter what department he was working with he could be called away at any time to go on a dive. I have been in underground watersheds that are about one hundred feet wide by two hundred feet long by almost one hundred feet deep that are completely enclosed in cement and had to be lowered in by a rope to get in there and do investigations. That's Kinda troubling when you know that there's no escape if you have an issue I have been In Dams on top of Mountains. I have been in the La River searching for bodies. I've had to be deployed by helicopter. You know into the ocean and do giant strides off appears we pretty much do everything in our department because we try not to say no to an investigation if at all possible because then we're sending a message that hey this is a good idea to dump evidence here but in the summer of two thousand thirteen the LAPD dive unit. Got A call. That sounded so unreasonable. It had to be a joke. Detectives had gotten a tip on a high profile murder case a case they still aren't releasing many details about the murder happened in two thousand eleven and the investigation had gone cold until they got word. That evidence may have been thrown in the La brea tar pits. It was like being asked to scuba dive in a pit of toxic cold molasses. How could you even see in it? Let alone breath and at first You know we were joking about us like that's you know that's not really going to happen. There's no way we could pull that off. But once we receive a request from detective to do an investigation. My job is to see if that's something that we can do. I would feel like that'd be something to just say. I'm sorry. That is absolutely nothing we can do. Well keep in mind that yes. We're the underwater dive unit. But there's a lot of things that we can do. That might not necessarily mean. We have to dive investigation. We have remote operated vehicles. We have Assessors equipment that we can deploy sometimes and the nobody knew if anything would function or not. Everybody's best guest was no nothing work when he says everybody's best guess was no. He means everybody. This was an all hands on deck analysis the La Fire Department. Port Police beach police geologists archaeologists diving experts and even the people who design the underwater search equipment. Their concern was that those remote operated vehicles emit small electric sparks. Even when they're supposed to be airtight to go underwater. No one could be certain. They wouldn't let off sparks that might cause an explosion and set the whole tar pit on fire. They tried other options hooks and grabbers magnets. Nothing worked but they were able to use the sonar system to confirm that the pieces of evidence were in fact down there in the tar so now we were in a situation where we have identified items that need to be looked at and we can't retrieve them the equipment so we decided that maybe we try to put Diver into the into the tar. Did you center and pick straws or did you think this is my call? How how did you get chosen to do this? Well at that time I was the oh. I see the officer in charge of the investigation. If this is a scenario where I could be asking somebody to go in harm's way and most likely they're not gonNA come back from it. How would I feel being the person that makes a phone call and says I told my officer to do that? He did it in knowing he's most likely going to get hurt and he does not have to deal with the family so I decided if anybody was gonna do it was going to be me and that way nothing could possibly come back if if I get injured or I don't come back while it was my decision. Did you stop and Are you married? I am married twenty nine years. Twenty nine and you have kids. I have two sons thirty one in twenty five. So did you call your wife and say listen. I have to do this kind of crazy thing. What do you think you'd better not to tell her? No that was one of those scenarios where you You know. Beg For forgiveness later And not say anything. I looked at like this. I've had a good life. I've had a great career. I've done a lot of things. My kids are older. If something bad happened my watch going to be taken care of. And when I talked to my lieutenant at the time WHO's now retired. He basically said Dave. Do we want to send the message that we can't do this? There's somewhere a bad guy can go and get away.

"Horses to that race and I think this is just another thing. That's really unhelpful. For Southern California raising to take away three grade ones from them at a time when they really don't need that they need More attention and more money and more prestige for their races so they can get their get their reputation bill back up so obviously no hope for them. it's very stupid that the Santa Anita Sprint Championship and Bosberg were both downgraded goes I think this year alone kind of proves how quality the the race can be on then. Obviously that's going to deteriorate from it. I don't know how much though because as of this point. Those are two major prepped for the Breeders Cup that great ones In the third one would have to be the Phoenix taints at keeneland which is great you so at this point all all those races are great. Choose now all the major breeders cup. Preparation is our grade twos on so I don't know how much of a factor that'll happen deteriorating field quality but it's definitely a a negative for the sport that they take away these these labels of great one great ones for these races. Yeah I think that's a good point to bring up because the Breeders Cup The Breeders Cup Challenge Series labeled on those racist specifically the Santa Anita Sprint Championship. And the Vosper. That definitely does eight. Those two races. I do WANNA mention He was talking about the quality of horses that come through this field up. These are the the last five winners which some people were saying on on twitter. You got horses. You Got Bello Fina. Obviously this year midnight last year paradise was in two thousand seventeen song or two thousand sixteen. Two Thousand Fifteen stellar wind beholder in two thousand fourteen. You mentioned also two thousand. Eleven turbulent descent. A Horse that went on to win a bunch of great ones in the year. Two thousand eleven so that seven horses out of the ten winners from the SANTITA OAKS THIS DECADE. That all went on to have some forms of success in their two year. Old Camp or excuse me in their three-year-old year. So and I definitely at the point that Erick makes the field size is one thing. But you and I know. The graded stakes committee has submitted some factors as to why they downgraded it and you know the overall quality of the race but you know the winners of the race should be something that is taken into account and also the other thing is. I don't WanNa to throw other races onto the boss either but you know there's certain races like the Santa Handicap. Someone brought up is a race. That definitely doesn't get the quality of forces that it used to and you know kind of in some years can feel like a grade two race and you know the history behind that race has made the greatest states committee less enthusiastic about downgrading that race but You know so. The exception goes there I under I see it from both ways. I understand that they have the criteria that they have to meet. And you know obviously the sanity to oaks was the weakest of the of some of the top three road races. Now obviously. That's looking at racist past the Kentucky Oaks all those races that it lags behind with the exception of actually never mind. It doesn't like it is the most successful the Walker handcock. Put some stuff out on twitter. All if you WANNA go check out his twitter of why it was downgraded. It is the most successful of the triple crown prep races and I I don't like that it was downgraded but I understand that there are standards to live up but at the same time I can understand something and still not like it and I think the point Erick brings up his great that. This doesn't help California at all you know. We've all known the field size. It's been well documented that the fact that the field sizes are down. And you know in time in California needs something This isn't a time to kind of take something away from California when they need as much going for them as they can possibly have That's really about it. You know the Vosper that's top sprint race on the east coast. I don't understand why that's being downgraded you know the the Alan Alfred Vanderbilt. Excuse me up mixing up that with the Allen Jerkins that's a great one at Saratoga. That's not up Breeders Cup race up now. I know the forego. That's not Breeders Cup race either. The vase that's Breeders Cup challenge race so And it's it's another one of the historic races but it's not as historic is some of the other ones so that one getting downgraded And also getting downgraded the Santa Anita are Santa Sprint Championship off of the two insane performances by a pair of really nice horses chance lot Omaha Beach and imperial hinton forensic fire respectively between those two races. You know that enough could weigh. Should in my opinion way the decision but regardless I understand that there are standards that they have to they have to meet but I can understand the standards and not like something so. That's the way that I feel about that. I don't know I'll pose the question you nothing really jumps out at me. Do you think there's anything that should have been upgraded. That wasn't no. I think you know we've obviously dealt with the downs major. Downgrades where the wood memorial in the the BLUEGRASS in the last couple of years in Does kind of at times has.

"On the improvable after a bit of a layoff. So that's the American oaks for you allotted different angles. Whichever you prefer to go with. You can take the my team's going to be late. Prance walk purely because I think she has the most outside of anyone in this group and this kind of has the feeling of race that just kind of feels like you know the a couple not a couple of minutes before pope but like the morning of the race you just kind of it seems like the race or you just kind of put the put the race card up and throw darts at a dartboard and see what sticks. At least that's trust me. I'm all all valuate. The race wants the entries. Come out to put my pick on twitter. The last thing I want to get to the show today is. That's at for the race previews but the last thing they want to get to on the show today. Is We have a couple of extra minutes. So let's talk about one of the many controversies that has come out the past couple of days and that is the annual American graded stakes committee submitting their upgrades and downgrades of a particular races. Now specifically we're GONNA hit on the grade. One racist here. Four races were downgraded from their grade. One status three of them all being at Santa Anita those being the Shan't the chandelier race for two year old phillies Breeders Cup race. Also the grade one Santa Anita Sprint Championship and the Santa Anita Oaks and in addition the great one vosper in New York so All for those races were downgraded. There were no races that were upgraded. you can banter about what races should have been upgraded. I personally don't really think there's anything that is worth arguing over. That wasn't upgraded. I don't know if Eric you have anything. That should have been upgraded. But I'll let you start off first with your feeling on those Graded stakes downgrades. Yeah nothing nothing in particular about Being health create I think what the degrade ones they had? Were really good in but I do very much disagree with the raises. They downgraded my biggest. My biggest frustration is with the downgrade of the Santa Anita. Oaks to a great too. I know the big factor was the small fields. But I mean if you look back. The last five years we've had winters like Songbird and behold hurt Dela Vina on multiple divorces horses. Those are just the ones off the top of my head Though that includes.

"Ten east before the LA brea avenue exit stall pick up there blocking middle lane and a collision in the express lanes on the one ten north before MLK. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Noel king. And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning. US officials are holding meetings today about how to respond to an attack by Iran on an American drone. It happened overnight, Iran's Revolutionary Guards shot down the US military aircraft and the Persian Gulf US navy. Forces in the region are now trying to recover, the wreckage President Trump tweeted this morning, quote, Iran has made a very big mistake. We have NPR's Pentagon correspondent Pentagon. Correspondent Tom Bowman with us now. Also, Peter Kenyon. Who's following the story from Istanbul and has covered on for many years. Welcome to you both. Hey, rachel. Oh, all right, Tom, so the outstanding question right now is where exactly this happened, right? Because if it happened to overrunning airspace, as the Iranians claim they could justify this as a defensive move. Right. That's right. They could. But I'm told by a source that this drone was operating several dozen clump. Off around and international airspace. Nowhere near Iran, and it was shut down by a surface to air missile from Iranian territory in they're able to determine all of this. They say by a variety of sensors, it could be satellites could be the ground station operating. This navy drone is a navy version of Global Hawk, and we expect to get more information about exactly precisely where this drone was. And again, you can determine that, of course, by GPS by satellites, and other technical means you can also determine where the shot came from the shot this drone down through satellite imagery. They could pick that up as well. So hopefully sometime today will get a lot more detail from the US military about what exactly what evidence do you have? I mean Peter would the Iranians notice that, that it is knowable fact that they according to the US officials did not launch this attack from? Some Iranian airspace. It's certainly conceivable, they would know that so far, what they have offered on their side is nothing that you could really call evidence, certainly not prove primarily officials are just asserting that the drone violated Iranian airspace. And that's why the shootdown happened what else is, is a Ron saying this morning. I mean, are you getting the sense that this is an intentional esscalation? Well, what we've heard from the revolutionary guard commander Hussein Saleh me. He's calling this downing of the drone a clear message that Iran will repel what he called foreign aggression against it again. No evidence to back up the claim. But apparently, Iran hasn't seen anything yet to make it one a change. It story Tom what else do we know about this, this drone this aircraft? We know we know it, it didn't have a pilot, correct. But right. It's why drone it's, it's pilotless aircraft and this navy version of the Global Hawk is very, very large. I think most people think. Of groping quite small. This is forty six feet long Rachel one hundred and thirty foot wingspan, because one hundred twenty million dollars a piece, and it's designed to first surveillance. So it was a long close to Iran in the waters monitoring ships surveilling ships, where they going tracking them. That's what it's planning on. That's what it was. It's, it's whole point is to do that in the US is actually sending over last week. They announced thousand more military personnel more assets to the region, including more drones of fighter squadron patriot missile, batteries, to shoot down, incoming missiles, so a lot more military hardware, heading that way. I suppose I underscore, the fact that there is no pilot because secretary of state Mike Pompeo said recently that, that, if any American were in some way, harmed by Iran attacked by Iran, that, that would be a red line. This is not that. So, well, Pompeo said to go after an American or an American interest, which you could make the argument that this is an American interest. I mean Peter is there precedent for this as a Ron shut down us drones before? Well, they've tried there have been attempts to shoot down. Drones, some pretty recent certainly there have been crashes of drones, several years back, Iran was showing everybody, a drone claimed it had captured which the US said at the time had malfunctioned been lost. I'm not sure that history is all at instructive. This is a pretty different time. And these tensions are spiking on top of an already very tense situation in, if I go just add Rachel just last week, the US has around fired at a US drone above one of tankers. It was attacked just this is just last week. And they said it was fired from what was described to me as sort of a drone missile that they, they said came from Iran, but it missed it was one. Kilometer off the target untold Peter just to get a more regional context here. We know the State Department's top advisor on Ron is in the Gulf now meeting with US allies, including Saudi Arabia. How do Saudi interest play into this? Well, the Saudis are clearly the biggest rival of the Iranians in the region, and have been for a very long time. And interestingly enough, we're seeing the interest of Saudi Arabia, and Israel lineup more often than Saudi Arabia. And then a run certainly. So I think there's a lot of shifting loyalties, and there's a lot of pressure being building. And that's the problem is a shrinking space now for anybody who's trying to defuse the situation and calm things down. And here's Peter Kenyon from Istanbul. Also NPR's Pentagon correspondent Tom Bowman for us this morning. Thanks to you both. You're welcome. Thanks, rachel. All right. For more on this developing story, we have on the line with us Representative Adam kissing her. He's a Republican from the state of Illinois, and he serves on the house foreign affairs committee, congressman, thanks for being here. Good morning. What do you think about Iran taking down this US drone dangerous escalation, I think one of the things when we figure out where this is in the dispute between international and is it not Iran claims? For instance, islands in the Gulf Farsi island, for instance, as their airspace, the international community doesn't recognize that. And in fact, when I flew over in that area back in the war, they would often may call out to us that we were actually in their airspace. When in fact they weren't. So I you know, it'd be interesting to see if this is where that happened. But this is obviously a dangerous escalation in Iran's plan. A very dangerous game. Right run saying it's a defensive move, and the US saying, no, it's an offensive move. Have you talked to anyone from the administration this morning? Not not as of today, but I have in the past, and I'll be the one thing I wanna say this. Nobody is for a fight with Iran. I mean this idea that there's some conspiracy in the White House to go to war is correct. But I think where the difference lies is there's a lot of people that believe that, you know, for thirty years, you clued me in this list, Iran has been attacking American interests American assets. And a quarter of American troops in Iraq were killed as a result of Iran, and as a result, the United States has never struck in Iran. And, and so at some point, you have to stand strong, and in many cases, having a credible, military option, doesn't necessarily mean you use it, but it means that it can diffuse further situations instead of inviting weakness. We talk this morning earlier to a former State Department negotiator on the Middle East. Aaron David Miller, he said that the US seem to underestimate Iran's response to a number of things the US, pulling out of the nuclear deal the US campaign of maximum pressure on Iran. Keeping the sanctions on has the United States fundamentally underestimated Iran here, I don't think so. But I mean, I don't think we necessarily saw that they were going to react in this way. But here's what. I think the biggest thing to keep in mind is, is Ron is reacting out of desperation a, a confident country competent, and it's better, you know, secure in its feature doesn't attach mines to, to ships. Doesn't attach minds to tankers. They, they don't do things like that. This is a country. That's very desperate because they're funding for places like Syria. Yemen has belie in Lebanon is running out there finding they're basically ability to go for as into other countries shrink, and what they're trying to do now is take this response right up to the point where they think they can provoke, it US response, and fall, just short so they can look up and they can create panic in the United States to try to pressure this administration back into the nuclear deal, which was so good for them. So I think the key with us is don't buy into the panicked with the United States military strong. We can do it. We need to defend ourselves. We're not talking about an invasion of Iraq. But that's what Iran Iran, I'm sorry. But that's what Ron seeking to do is to create panic here to pressure a reentry into the deal. All right. So let's say everyone in the United States stays calm. How do you think the? Should respond right now. I think we're approaching the point where there is a limited military response. I think the president's correct for not doing it yet, but Iran certainly stepped up to that line and keep in mind as the United States military people often put out false choices, either do nothing or invade with two hundred thousand troops. There's many, many things proportionately in there that can be done such as taking out surface to air sites that for instance, shootdown drones for taking out the ability to shut down the streets for moves. There's limited things that we can do that. If necessary we can put Iran back on their heels. We have far superior military capability, we don't wanna go there, but I think it's important for people to realize that we're not talking about an invasion in Iraq style, invasion, but there are escalating places to that which I think will cause around the back down. If we need to ask you, what obligation US allies in the region have specifically Saudi Arabia. What should the Saudis in your view be doing now today? washing obviously saudi arabia and iran or mortal enemies and so i don't know if there's a lot they can do to ease tensions obviously they need to be prepared defensively if these shia militia reenergized or terrorist groups from yemen for instance so i think that kind of thing i think all the other allies can obviously step in to try to reduce tensions i think we can reenter negotiations with iran for a deal that would be somewhat similar to what was had but would take and things like ballistic missiles and their behavior their destabilizing behavior in the region and i think we can all get out of this with a win include in iran but you know right now they're trying to basically acquiesce the u._s. to the good deal that they had and the interesting thing is they're responding to economic pressure with military means which is extremely disproportional and something needs to be remembered and the last thing i'll say is this we talked about rhetoric from this administration a lot all you have to do is look at the rhetoric from the iranian regime and know that you know ours is nothing in comparison adam kim Republican from Illinois and a member of the house foreign affairs committee, congressman, thanks so much for being with us.

Muslims Are Having A Hollywood Moment

"Is changing on American television and online streaming services. There are more Muslim characters and more nuanced portrayals of Muslim communities NPR's Leila Fadel starts to story on set in Los Angeles. It's one of the last days of taping for a new web series called east of LA brea, all ROY. It's a show about being your twenties and figuring out life, and it's told through two main characters roommates who are Muslim, but that's not the entirety of their storylines says Samir Gardezi, the creator of the show it's about paying rent. You know, having a dead end job. I'm having issues with you know, your your family life going to families the first project from powder cake, the company founded by director writer and actor Paul fig known for films like bridesmaids and the recent Ghostbusters east of LA brea follows the friendship of two women a black Muslim and Bangladeshi American will slump in gentrifying, Los Angeles Gardezi says, it's one American Muslim story. There's so many different versions, and my hope would be that everyone gets a shot that tell their version of a Muslim Americans story. So it doesn't feel like, oh, this is the one show that needs to make it all the way. We had to the next location for taping an LA mosque the scene deals with racism black Muslims, sometimes face within Muslim communities. The character. I show Hudson played by Geoffrey Maya is praying when her phone starts ringing with a song like this guy. You gain the director tells the other actors how to react and ladies look at her little shady in the next scene. A woman skull Tessin, assuming she's a recent convert and tells her her prayer doesn't count. We have lessons every Thursday one in conflict with it's something that happens an immigrant Muslim, assuming she knows better. And it's one way the show explores identity, and he's still brea creator Samir Gardezi says he's glad there are more projects involving Muslims. But he says there isn't going to be one breakout moment, but hopefully, there will be many moments and the more stuff that's out there, even the bad stuff. The better. That's that is the flexibility and the privilege that I think white communities is that they're allowed to fail and Hollywood and no one really bad tonight. It's like, okay. It's okay. You can you can jump back up and here let's throw millions of dollars again for you to do your next project. So that's the point that we have to get to. It's a struggle a lot of communities of color and minorities face in Hollywood, the two thousand eighteen Hollywood diversity report from UCLA found that despite progress minorities are still under a presented in key jobs from lead actors to director. Two writers right now, there's an appetite for shows about Muslims in parts because Muslim writers like our daisy who's written on modern family and outsourced are creating their own content and their support for it. He got a grant from pop culture collaborative to create the series and some of the interest is Hollywood reacting to anti-muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment from Donald Trump after he announced his candidacy in two thousand fifteen the Hollywood bureau of the Muslim public Affairs Council got a lot more popular the phones were ringing off the hook that sue Abadie. She leaves the bureau and consults with studios and production companies on creating more authentic Muslim characters were up against decades of storytelling. That is inaccurate many times that is racist often and very stereotypical among the tropes women are chattel and don't have identities or Muslims only portrayed as the gas station owner or the taxi driver Obeidi says, it's an uphill battle. But today the list of characters on mainstream television. In is longer than she's ever seen a Muslim third on Grey's anatomy, a superhero on DC legends of tomorrow, a LGBTQ hijab e Muslim on on the bowl type a pork loving alcohol. Drinking Muslim on master of none. When writers come to her for advice. Obeidi reminds them that these Muslim characters might be the only Muslim some people ever meet. She tries to help them. Get the language, right? Like scripts that used the term alot Akhbar, which means God is great. So you've seen many TV and film projects that have LA walkabout being used in very violent scenes how baiting a Goshi it's studios to try to get them to change it translated or offset it with happy scenes like saying God is great at a wedding or a dinner party because for Muslims. It's a beautiful phrase portrayed as ugly. You know? So someone Sears hook bud when they're dining out. And all of a sudden, you know, they're calling nine one one because they think of family is doing. Something bad. When all they're saying is God that was a damn good meal hawk bud. And I've eighties excited by many of the projects now being written by and about Muslims for large audiences. There's soons eight a Palestinian American comic with cerebral palsy writing an autobiographical sitcom for ABC Moammar a comic with the recent Netflix special and Rami Yousef who I met on a night. He's headlining at the Hollywood, improv. He jokes about how in L A's. Suddenly people think Islam is cool juice shot of getting some juices ten song. It's woman I'm telling her about Ramadan. And you know, she works in my God that sounds so I wanted to do with this weekend. She said Coachella. The New Jersey native is following in the path of many comics who've gone from stand up to sitcom like Seinfeld. Rami Yousef is writing ten episodes of show cult Rami for Hulu it will reflect who use of is in gypsy in American a practicing Muslim who like most people wrestles with trying to be good after a stand up performance. He jokes about how he and his friends approach religion a little like a menu. We call it a LA carte where we're all kind of just picking and choosing like wool. This is my deal with God helps Rami reflects how all kinds of people have their deal with God. I like to get dark. I like to get weird. I like to get uncomfortable. And I feel like when an immigrant family, or when a family that is maybe, you know, group that's not well represented when people try and put them on television. They go out of their way to make them. Look amazing and look perfect his show do that. I just was really excited about the idea of making Muslims. Look imperfect and not create something that was like some PR thing, but create something that was you know, really just a realistic portrayal of what we go through. How we are. He says that people connect with others when they see their flaws not when their hero of villain or exactly like everyone else

"If you want more of the, show during the week that is the only way to get it to that quantity it's. Just under seven hours or so of content delivered on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays and then in. Addition to that you get this show every hour on the hour on during the show he, gets posted so you get that also follow us on Twitter at Jesus show Jesus show Vince welcome to the Jesus Christ show Jesus I Vince what's on your mind I've been. Very lucky in my life I've had two. Beautiful children I was raised Catholic I have a Muslim wife and I. Have two children that are. In a Jewish preschool Wow you're like the colors of Benetton but with religion Right And you know where I stand on religion is that I don't really believe in any of it, personally, I I'm an atheist But I gotta tell you that a lot of good things have happened in my life I've been a, lot, about some downs And, I help people I'm a dentist I, help the underprivileged I a big brother I do a lot of good things and I. I try to do that every day And some some of that gets returned. To me some. Not but I really. Don't care whether it. Does or doesn't and as a result a lot, of good things have happened to me But I am an atheist and You. Know I'm just curious to to I just wonder what we're. Jesus or, God stands on that I mean if you know what has to happen, to me after I pass away somebody who basically is a good person who tries to do good things in general and tries to be. Make other people better around them What's. Your position, on that well Vince the the questions interesting and slightly odd because you, don't believe so why would you be concerned about an afterlife you don't believe in a God I'm assuming you don't believe in an afterlife No I don't believe in an afterlife either okay I believe that we. We we assume beings have, limitations of our five senses and we can't possibly know what's go beyond the atmosphere and beyond this. The. The stars that shouldn't recognize there probably are things? Larger or infinitely larger or? Smaller, than us but we as human beings don't have enough courage to to. Say that what we don't know to admit? What we don't know so so. Are you fearful that you might be wrong Not in not in the least okay Then, the answer any answer give his. Moot It means nothing. My answer means nothing your question means nothing if you don't believe, there's a cliff and you're, driving towards it The honest reaction and response is that you'll die regard regardless of your belief but it made me. Nothing to me but it may mean a lot to someone who doesn't matter doesn't. For the question. Is to see what we're. Jesus stands on. A person like me. And there has to. Be an answer there I don't know and you don't know me It's that simple it's like asking we'll, how does a stranger feel about you now there's a creation connection and that's it you choose not to know you choose to to be an artist without God and if you believe that then. You live that. Way and living that way If the creator created me then he must have a connection with. Me even though I don't, have a connection with him indeed there is a Created, a son but he never met his son before but there is there's a base connection absolutely. Scripture, talks about that So that's why God loves everyone. Must no answer for what Jesus there's no relationship born a person like me there has to be some type. Doesn't matter it doesn't matter because you. Don't believe it does not, interact with you or intersect with you in any way if you don't believe it means nothing. If it's like someone saying, I wanna know what you want me, to do here even though I'm not, gonna do it if you ask a, question if you put it in that. Light. There is no answer Now if you called and you asked me and he. Said listen I'm wavering and I'm not. Sure and I wanna know, what there is on the other side of it then, I tell you but there's no reason. For me to tell you, about the consequence of something that you, don't believe is consequential Jesus Christ will return in a moment Part, of the.
