"By Philistine this is democracy now the quarantine report I'm amy. Goodman spend the hour with the legendary activists scholar. Angela Davis Professor at University of California Santa Cruz President Trump has announced he's holding his first campaign rally since the quarantine since lockdowns across the country since the pandemic, he's holding in Tulsa Oklahoma on June nineteenth a highly symbolic day. It was June. Nineteenth, eighteen, sixty, five that enslaved Africans Texas I learned they were free two years after Abraham Lincoln signing the patient proclamation. The day is now celebrated as June eighteenth. California's Senator Harris Tweeden response. This isn't just a wink to white supremacists. He's throwing them a welcome home party unquote will Tulsa. Tulsa recently mark the ninety ninth anniversary of one of the deadliest mass killings of African Americans in US history in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one, a white mob, killed as many as three hundred people most of them black, after a black man was accused of assaulting a white woman. The white mobs destroyed a thriving African American business district known at the time. Is the Black Wall Street of America will this all comes as a Tulsa. Police major is coming under fire after denying systemic racism in the police force there and saying African Americans probably should be shot more. Listen carefully. This is major. Travis Gates in an interview with K. Faq. If a certain group is really more crimes, more violent crimes than that number's going to be Har- who in the world the rotten I would you are shooting should be right along the US census lines. All of their research says. African african-americans about twenty four percent less than we probably ought to be based on the crimes being committed. We're shooting. We're shooting them less than they probably be. Says, mayor and police chief have both blasted Yates for the comment, but he remains on the force. And on Friday president, trump will be there. Angela Davis your thoughts on the the significance of the moment the place. Well You know I can't even respond to anything he does anymore. It's just so so so so ridiculous. and. It is however. Important to recognize that. that. He represents of a sector of the population in this country that wants to return to the past the. Make America great again? with all of its white supremacy with all of us misogyny. and. I think that At this moment we are recognizing that we cannot be held back by such forces as those represented by the current. Occupant of of the White, house I doubt very seriously whether the the people who come out to hear him in Tulsa A. on this Dr Day of course. All over the country. People of African descent will be observing June teens as a as a matter as an emancipatory Moma in our our history. But I think that that our role is to start to begin to translate some of the Energy and passion into transforming institutions The process already begun? And it's not it can be turned back at least not by the current occupant of the White House. I'm not suggesting that it's easy to create lasting change, but at least now we can see that it is possible when when someone like Roger Goodell says backlogs, even though he did not mention. Colin Kaepernick and even though he may have probably didn't really mean. What that means is that The NFL recognizes that it has to begin a new process There is a further expansion of of popular consciousness. In New York. Of course you need to ask whether you really want to create new jails in the boroughs in the aftermath of closing rikers whether you need new services. I've been thinking about the case of of Justice me and I'm wondering why in Chicago given the conditions surrounding the murder of Lochlann. McDonnell the police. Department should be thoroughly investigated and we need to ask. How is it that the public could so easily rallied to the police narrative of what happened in in in the case of Jesse, a small let so there is some to be done I think that the the rallies. That's the current occupant of the White House is holding will fade in into. Don't even merit footnotes and history, and you'll the Davis I wanted to ask you about another event. That's taken place on June eighteen, th and June. One thousand, nine hundred and the Birmingham civil rights. Institute is finally going to issue the Fred. L. Shuttles worth the were award during a virtual event on June eighteenth and I wanted to ask you about this. Because you return to your hometown of Birmingham Alabama last February after the institute had I rescinded the award due to your support for Bedia boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, and you're supportive Palestinians. After outcry. The institute reversed its decision. More than three thousand people gathered to see you talk at an alternative event to honor you, which was hosted by the Birmingham Committee for Truth and reconciliation. This is a clip of your comments that day. It became clear to me that this might actually be a teachable moment. That, we might see this moment. To reflect on what it means to live on this planet in the twenty first century, and our responsibilities, not only to people in our immediate community, but to people all over the planet. We were there covering this amazing moment where the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute head rescinded. The award to you, the Fred L. Shuttles worth award went through enormous turmoil. The mayor of Birmingham so many people across the spectrum criticize them for it, but then this process happened, and you are going to be awarded this. Can you talk about the significance of this moment and what you plan to say on June taints the day that president trump will be tolls. Thank you for reminding me that these two events happening on the same day? And, of course that was. I think the last time I actually saw you in person a media in Birmingham. A lot has happened over the last period including. Within the context of the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Of. A have completely reorganized. They have reorganized their board. They have been involved in conversations with the Community of course. As you know. The the man.

"Percent of the researches compared with seventeen percent for blacks and sixteen percent for Latinos the totals include both searches of vehicles in pat down searches of the occupants occupants. So again this would call into question why they're searching so many more black people so there's a lot that goes into the type of data. I reached out to Sousse some people at Central Connecticut State University because they also are taking statistical information like the LAPD in looking looking at how many times police officers are not only stopping different races. Cc s you also did a report about this on. I have reached out to them and I'm going to reach out to them again because I'd like for them to explain what goes into this type of methodology. How is it that They're getting these. He's numbers in this information. In what are the decisions of officers. What is behind the decision of officers to make these types of searches? Now let let me just give it a little bit of background in this. There was a report released back in July of Twenty nineteen that I have that I've been thumbing through about six or seven hundred pages or so something like that and this is almost a second. This is the second report now. I was a police officer and command staff and I was allowed allowed to go to win. Cc Su I presented their information to the municipal chiefs in the higher authorities higher administration. Australian officials within departments was there actually when the first time that they presented their information. And so There was a lot of questions and a lot of pushback because the decisions since to search vehicles are often based on a number of different practice and I want the scholars to present that information. If not then maybe I'll do another episode about that but I want them to present their information as to how and why these certain situations or what's behind the actual decisions of officers to decide to search in cars so one of the decisions that boosted the city of water bury's numbers as far as searching of vehicles boop because let me just back back the per second year so when Central Connecticut State University did their analysis. What they did was they looked at different cities and towns and they they looked at how many searches as compared to motor vehicle? Stops that these towns and cities have it's a waterbury. Our our own department was on the hiring. Were one of the reasons for the higher and this is why this type of statistical information is very important. You have to look into the reasons. Why one of the reasons that waterbirds incidences of searches? His of vehicles was so much. Higher is because our policy said that in order to tow a motor vehicle we had to do an inventory search and accounts accounts assert. So here's what happens. We pull a driver over. He has no license. No insurance no registration something we've always called the TRIFECTA practically had to try back to normal license. No registeration in those charts so we cannot allow that driver to leave the scene even if someone else how they had a drive. A valid driver's license was in the car make anti carpet against not registered and again. Because it's not insured so we have to tell the car had the can't leave the car where it is more than likely. Pardon you know. We pulled over on a traffic stop so we have to do something about the car. So we're GONNA tow the car so now we have to do an inventory. Search that was part of our policy right because we don't want people due to come back and say well listen. I had the diamond ring in the glovebox or I had a thousand dollar mixer studio mixer in the backseat. So the these are the reasons that we did the searches just do it a protection of our own selves as to what was actually in the car course we give the owners and occupants the opportunity to take any valuable items they might want so that's that was one of the reasons that was our policy and that was one of the reasons why our searches was so high so it looked as though what was searching more individuals what it was an were her. The fact of the matter was is that came down to a searching individuals. What I'm saying is more vehicle searches and so we were again because and and the reason that we were searching so much more than other people other departments is because of our policy? So you have to look at what was going on with this type. The Phoenix police officer her. Who was responsible for doing the bulk of the swearing concerning the little girl? Who took a doll from the ninety accents store has been fired so just remind you of that case was a little girl in Phoenix? Family goes into a dollar store little girl three or four years old says a little doll takes. The doll brings to the car in the family drives off supposedly the family. The mother and the father were unaware that his childhood on how to solve a passer by not even the store calls. So it's a passer-by to witness who says they see this child. Take a doll. Police are called and the police respond in the show of force that has been now been a viral video that has gone on and we see officers shown own. They're almost as if they're looking to apprehend homicide suspects right. There swearing get epoch ground KC car. You're going to get shot all this kind of crazy stuff so the main main culprit in that particular case. That officer has been fired. I think another officer needs discipline as well. And that's one's kicking up the guy e father's legs time when you do something I tell you to do it. Watch the video if you can sit through it again. It's absolutely horrific once again to understand this. I'm I'm gonNA say again someone. Tell me if I'm wrong about this. I don't see them responding like that to any other family any other particularly white family right. You'RE NOT GONNA go to Beverly Everley Hills. You'RE NOT GONNA go to the country club and do this kind of behavior right so I think there's this certain animosity. There's a certain stigma whatever's going on in the minds of people that there's a certain treatment that black people in their minds. I would assume desert all this for a child who you took a ninety nine cent doll or Dolphin Manatt from a dollar store even the dollars of which five dollars you're responding in this way in the show of force guns drawn if you draw your guns that means that you have determined to use lethal force. Think about that you have determined to use lethal force. That is the poor. Situ born to us and you're GONNA kill them over a over a doll. You have to make better decisions about the things that we were doing Chicago. Releases investigations negations showing. Sixteen officers helped cover up. The killing of lochlann McDonnell is comes from a splinter news. Terrible terrible situation. WanNa Marie to you a little bit about this. The city of Chicago released a watch dog report showing an alleged cover up following the two thousand fourteen police killing a black black teenager. McLaughlin McDonnell at least sixteen officers were involved in numerous violations to obscure the facts around the Jason Van Dyke shooting McDonnell who who was seventeen according to the documents Van Dyke. That's the oxmoor actually pulled the trigger McDonnell continuing to shoot him if anyone has seen the video he's continuing waiting to shoot mcdonagh while he's on the ground vandeweghe false statements to exaggerate the danger. McDonald's posed mayor Laurie Life. What now this is a new mayor? have been following this case the mayor before was Rahm Emanuel yes the OBAMAS boy rahm Emanuel. He refused to release the video for over a year and took a judge to order that the video that we all saw that became a viral it so a judge to mandate that video will be released. And that's why became viral and that's why we know so much more about this case and that's why would the community in so many other. People have in an uproar about the situation because the mayor of the city was helping to in a sense cover up or at least not let the story get out Chicago elected. The new mayor in this new mayor is geared towards more transparency. So it just as a side note. This is why it's important for you all to get out there and vote if you don't like the way that your city towns and and councils and police departments in what departments and Finances and whatever it is in school departments and you don't like the way things are being run get out and vote and vote all these people out of office. This.

"Job. But you certainly know what you what you have in store for you. You've been around long enough that forum kind of gave us an opportunity to see all of you guys on TV and there are people again wide range of I don't know why some of them are running and what's going on. And and there's a call for Toni preckwinkle, very serious call for her to step down and to stop running because of what splashed on her with Ed Burke and him being arrested. Then she uses a commercial. And if anybody that's not familiar with Chicago Lochlann McDonnell, obviously Google that name and the young kid was sixteen or seventeen years old shot sixteen times. And it was a big big thing everybody, I think around the country knows about it. But she used his name. And in an ad saying that she was part of the effort to help this become a story to get to expose what was going on. And maybe she did. And some people just feel that was distasteful. But in addition to that, we have to remember is kind of shocking that she would run for mayor because we call it a Queen sugar sugar tax and penny Tex tax WinCo, EMMY all these names, and how what her job that she's done so far as board president county board president, and she didn't show up for the forum of all the candidates was amazing that you didn't show up. What was interesting that day that I got a call from one of the activists they were very much involved that was a plaintiff in the freedom of information lawsuit. Get the release of the tape and he was quite upset. We did put out a statement that thing I don't think we've put anything out on Twitter Facebook, where we we were quoted in some of the papers. I thought she should resign because of their I thought she should resign because of the dirty money that was used against me. There was raised by Edberg Gerry Chico for her reelection. And you know, this whole money controls. You know, a lot my campaign is base. And again, people should follow me on Facebook. They should follow me on Twitter. But reaching out talking to people, you know. Make a song 'cause you know raising your money and lots of phone calls, and, you know, the people I talk with our, you know, they they don't they can't afford big dollars and sense. And so you get the small contribution that twenty five of the fifty dollar contribution. I mean, we should have. Clearly limits on how much can you get if you're? Some of these unions. I mean to give twenty million and a half dollars believe teacher's union. She's a former teacher, and it just all the issues that we have going on in Chicago's teachers was Cocco public schools for the teacher's union. Just the steel to double down there still backing her in they gave how much money I am not sure that a lot. Sticking with us. The seizures union SEI, you SEO, you gave another seven hundred fifty thousand dollars the other day. What do they want out of somebody? I mean, how much is it going to cost us the citizens because the union now controls? If she were to win she she's going to have to pay they're not giving it to other kinds of their heart. They're expecting something out of favor. They do look at Bill Daley. He's almost four million dollars. Now, what did the bankers want? What you the hedge funds want out of him. And what can he give them same thing with Gary, Chico? I was surprised today at the former UIC he talked about how he helped on some affordable housing, and he was doing it it sounded like he was doing the goodness of his heart. He's lobbyists. He makes millions of dollars a year lobbying for people who who really us taxpayers money for their own benefit. I mean, what are we electing at this point? Susan mendoza. She I I like her, but Randy service wins and issues already talking about another office. She came out of the corrupt his HD. Oh, the Hispanic democratic organization. Everybody knows how corrupt. That was a lot of amended up in jail. What what you know? And now, she her mentor, Ed Burke, she turns his back on. I mean, I fought head to head in our harmless on the city council often, but you don't want. Would you stabbed him in the back after all he did for a her? Well, maybe that's her way of dealing with the issues. You got to wonder where all this money's coming from? And what's the result? And what did they what are their benefactors ask for when their candidate gets in office again the racist? What February twenty six I'm sure, you know, the days, you probably have a little calendar countdown. The time between a windows early voting start. Well, that's the they moved it back a bit now because there are still challenges in some of the automatic ones and on the mayor Oman's. So and then they have to print the balance. So it's it's we're going to still have to see I think probably by the obviously the end of the month. They will be setting early voting. How do they do with so many people on the on the ballot? How do they do ballot placement? As far as it was the lottery first day that if you filed the for you were there in the opening they put you in a lottery, if you're at the last moment, they put you in a lottery, and I was at the last moment because again, I got into this race because nobody was talking about crime education or the bad budgeting bed pension problems that we have now education. I'm glad you mentioned that again one in four black children attend failing schools. We've got the grade schools that are doing it very well the magnet schools, and then we've got those schools just aren't doing what they should do to to educate. Children to get them to break that cycle of poverty. How are you going to address that as elected school boards is that one of the issues that can help? Address that elected school board. It doesn't end the problem. Okay. And I'm worried about the special interest trying to control the life is school board. So my view is. Yeah, let's have an elected school board. But anybody that's a vendor including Schwab teacher's union. Cannot give money to candidates in those races that will restrict them. Now. I say now why did I run for all of them? I was pretty much somewhat out of politics a disgruntled just like everybody else, and I would walk out of my house. I live on the block block away from when I walk in my street, and I looked down five blocks down the road is crane. Hi, scott. And I read an article in twenty six and one of the papers that said six out of every one hundred African American kids that go through CPS go to college. I thought that's unacceptable. And what I did was I had more schools in my ward than any other. What did I do? I found ways that we created mentoring programs that we created wraparound. I found one point two of over one million dollars for every school in my ward. Now, unfortunately, the the worst came the worst was in oh seven when a young man was killed side of crane and kids going to school. We had to go. I I went door to door SU only cutting you off because we're out of time. Our just goes by so fast. He wants to be the next mayor Chicago. They're just following social media go to the website. There's a lot of forms get an opportunity to see all of the mayor candidates together. So and you probably can't get to them. It's probably online. You're welcome anytime. Thank you very much. It was it was an amazing opportunity to really get a chance to talk about some of the major pre pressing issues that anybody who wins is going to have to address one way or another. Thank you. It was great to be here. Three one zero five nine one thousand nine hundred..
