"louie" Discussed on Bob and Sheri

"Out and over that moon to give us this incredible view of Saturn's rings like we've never had before. Then in 1997, NASA launched the Cassini mission and we got these incredible images there and one of those probes landed on the moon Titan. In 2005, it was the very first earth robot to reach the surface of a moon in our outer solar system. I know that that is not nearly as exciting as the fight between Scott Disick and Kendall Jenner on the latest episode of the Kardashians on Hulu. But for those of us that are kind of geeky, that's like gigantic y'all earth robotics on an alien moon. Rivers and mountains. Wow. Saturn was a kid right after your fascination with dinosaurs started wear out a little bit. You picked up on Saturn. That was, that was the handoff from dinosaurs to Saturn because of its amazing visual impact. Well, we're going to break here. I'm going to post. I'm going to post all of this on Facebook, but I want to tell the kids one more cool thing. Saturn has another moon, a tiny little moon with a great big crater. It looks like the death star from Star Wars. You guys are going to love seeing this. It's all going to be on the bob and sherry Facebook. So, you know, the weekend is almost upon us and look at all the cool stuff you have to talk about at the neighborhood cookout. It's bob and sherry. Bob and sherry live tonight. At 7 p.m. eastern tonight, live on the bob and cherry Facebook page. For giving away a necklace a day every weekday in May, a beautiful handmade necklace your choice of a black pearl or a white pearl on a gorgeous gold chain handmade in the Chicago studio of Landon lacy jewelry. All you have to do to win it is post a picture of you and your bestie at BOB. Dot com. Just go do that right now, and you could find yourself walking away with a gorgeous handmade necklace that I dot com. All right, thank you very much, sherry, and behalf of land and lacy jewelry. I'm going to do a little shop talk right here, pull the curtain back with the bob and sherry show, see behind the scenes here. There is a magazine called radio Inc and radio Inc is obviously a magazine that's targeting the industry that we're in, radio. And it comes out once a month. It's very influential just about everybody who is a big manager or whatever program director gets radio ink. And once a year, they do an issue called the most influential women in radio. Sherry has been on that several times, two or three times. She is on it this month, and not only is she, I'm sorry. Ten times. Ten times, oh my goodness. So she's on it again as one of the most influential women in radio. She is the only person who is an air talent, someone who is a host, who is included. The rest of them are managers of some type. And not only is she in it, not only is she the only talent to be in it. She is on the cover. She is the cover girl this month this year for the most influential women in radio. And I am so proud of you, round of applause. I always was impressed as everybody who works with you and people who are kind enough to support our show. Have been. But the picture is, it's just like a picture is worth a thousand words. I saw that. I saw that picture. And you look wonderful in it. You really do. The new white hair style is very dramatic. She has on a really beautiful blouse. And I just thought to myself, wow. You know, this woman saved the bob and sherry show when it was about to be just bludgeoned by previous employers who no longer exist. And put together the way we do it now, and has been a great conduit for other women in broadcasting. And also has been a great manager of the show. We work with a lot of radio station, wonderful radio stations around the country, and they all know and love, sherry, and it's just so impressive that not only were you described in the article as one of the fastest talents for comedic delivery in the country, male or female, but then that is coupled with the fact that you are the CEO of now media, which is our company. So congratulations to someone who never thought that she'd be going down this road. And in any way, shape or form, but I hope where can people see the cover of the magazine? I know we posted it here and there, but where people see this cover because I think some of our long-term listeners and we thank you very much would like to see it. Let's get Heather to post it up on the bob and sharing Facebook. And we'll see if we can link the article, which is I have to figure out how to jailbreak that so that we can link the article. But I'll talk to Heather about doing that. And thank you very, very much. I was shocked when the editor reached out to me about this. I was like, you got to be kidding, right? And then I dreaded it because, you know, you know how I'm always saying really insane and inflammatory things and pissing people and radio off and pointing out that the emperors and his ratty, tighty whities. So I did dread it for that reason, but what are you gonna do? That's how fast things turned out fine. The people who know the snow is. So congratulations for you, cover of radio Inc and for my fans. Next month, I am on the cover. I share it with several sailors of lighthouses of America and I am very, very excited about that. I hope you're wearing your swaggy lighthouse sweater for that one.

Brave Republicans Confront DOJ About Whitmer 'Entrapment'

"A handful of Intrepid Republicans, and it's, it shouldn't be a handful. It should be the Republicans in a unified political phalanx. But no, it takes the brave ones to go out front. And here I'm talking about, I'm gonna name them. It's led by Marjorie Taylor Greene, but you've got Scott Perry, Dan bishop, Andrew Clyde, Andy Biggs, bob good, Mary Miller, Paul gosar, Andy Harris, Louie gohmert, Thomas massie Matt Gaetz, well, what are they doing? In the aftermath of the exoneration of two key defendants in the Whitmer kidnapping trial, the pressing attorney general Garland for some specific answers. Now, trying to get answers out of Garland is not an easy business. This is like going to the consigliere of Don Corleone and saying, hey, listen, we're we want to find out more about the mafia. You're actually talking to the mafia. But nevertheless, this needs to be done. And so this is a stinging letter and a demand. Of Merrick Garland copied a Christopher wray, and the questions themselves are telling, let me just read a couple of them. Who within the DoJ and the FBI knew about or was involved in the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer, tell us. Remember, this is a letter being sent by the legislators to the executive branch, which is accountable to the legislative branch. Number two, to what extent would the DoJ and the FBI motivated by the 2020 presidential election to paint political opponents as domestic terrorists specifically Vis-à-vis the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer and the events of the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021. In other words, this is not just at the FBI staging orchestrating infiltrating and moving along a plot. This is the FBI timing those events to coincide with an election. So the issue here being raised is the election interference, very important issue because these revelations came to light in early October of 2020.

Report: Conservatives Are Split About Florida's Actions Over Disney

"There's a story out talking about how conservatives are split are divided on the state of Florida, stripping Disney of the special tax and regulatory exemptions that Disney enjoys through the reedy creek improvement district. Some folks over at the national review don't forget national review famously with their never Trump edition right before the 2016 election, desperately trying to stop Trump from being elected. National review, these are institutional Republicans. This is the way we used to conduct political dialog in America, the national review way, the genteel, country club, smack each other on the back, and hope that the Democrats play nice with us. Those days are gone. Those days as evidenced by Marjorie Taylor Greene and Jim Jordan and Louie gohmert and others who are boisterous, they're loud, they're in the Democrats face, they're in the media's face, it's a new day, and Ron DeSantis is a new breed of Republican. The elites don't like him. Republican establishment types don't like Ron DeSantis. They certainly didn't like Trump. And they don't like this new way of trying to win. PS, not just trying, but winning. Desantis has had victory after victory after victory based on that town hall that Laura Ingraham had with him last night on Fox News. I think Laura called an Elvis

Why Won't Republicans Advocate for Stranded Jan. 6 Protestors?

"Now, here's what I want to know. Where are all the Republican congressmen? And senators? Heck, for that matter, governors. Where are the Republican representatives in demanding that the people who are still in jail who are still behind bars, this is April 7th, 2022. This event happened January 6th, 2021. And there are still people incarcerated. Pre trial detention. Where is Lindsey Graham? Where is Ted Cruz? Where is Jim Jordan? As far as I can tell, there have been two Republican representatives who have tried to speak out on behalf of these people. And I don't even think that Louie gohmert and Marjorie Taylor Greene, the only two members of Congress that I'm aware of who have tried to keep this issue in front of the public. I don't know that they're saying they're innocent or that they should be freed. They're just saying, do something with them. Try them or let them go. How long are you supposed to be incarcerated for a misdemeanor?

Rep. Louie Gohmert on the Biggest Crisis of the Biden Era

"Let's turn to the Biden administration because there's so many disasters on so many different fronts, Louis. But if you had to say, what is the single biggest crisis we face today with these Biden guys? Is it China? Is it the border? Is it inflation? When you look across the landscape, what worries you the most and why? Well, he is taking us into an area of totalitarian orwellian top leadership and that is just top down taking away our rights, that concerns me more than anything. We've made mistakes in foreign policy. Of course, it's hard to find one that's worse than how he ended Afghanistan. We needed to be out, but not like that. And not to empower the people that took down our towers and want to hit us again. Not to empower Russia the way he has. I mean, all of this was so predictable with the problems with Russia and China when he empowered him so much. And then, of course, the southern border, you can not keep a republic. As you know, dinesh, when you've got 2 million people plus pouring in every year and they don't know what it takes to keep a republic. So it's the overall of this administration, but especially when you're taking away Americans rights and that just makes it nearly impossible to come back from what he is doing to

"And then I created a character on stage that had a lot to do with being fat, and so I really boxed myself in a lot. And I'm really aware of it. You think that you boxed yourself in? Will you referring to your persona as a heavy person? Yeah. I mean, yeah, I would never play those parts in movies. So I was kind of limited. And I wasn't a very good actor early on. I was terrible actor because I didn't know who I was or how to do it. You know, but I feel like this part gave me an opportunity to play the most real person a really real person. That's what I was really going for here, Terry. I was really going for a really real person. I was very sorry to hear about your brother, Tommy, who died last week in his sleep. And this was like your youngest sibling. You had been the youngest of ten. Then he was born, he was the one. Yeah, yeah. I was younger. Said ten and then he was. It sounds like his death was totally unexpected. You've described him as your inspiration. In what sense was he? Well, you know, like he was my he was such a good friend. And you know, he was, he was really smart. He was the kind of guy I could call up and go. What do you think? He got, that's all crap. That's all ball. Don't do that. That's no good. You know, like he was just that kind of guy. He had a thing we called the truth ranger, where he goes. Everybody should tell the truth. As long as it doesn't hurt anyone's feelings, and I just laughed. I go, Tommy, so sweet. Of course it's going to hurt people's feelings if you always tell them the truth. Well, you know, you just don't know how to tell them the truth, then, Louie. And I go, maybe not. But it broke my heart. My heart's completely broken right now. When you, when you did comedy about him, did you run it past him first? And if so, what? No, I never did, but people didn't. My family didn't get mad. I didn't even know I had to run up. Do you know what I mean? I regret some of the books I wrote because I think I heard people's feelings. And I forgot one thing. One thing to remember when you're successful famous, whatever you want to call it, well known, not that well known, whatever you want to go. One thing to remember is your family's not famous. And they're not well known. And even though you can handle it, it doesn't mean they can. And that's the biggest regret I have. I should have never run it all by him. And yes, they all read it before I ever published anything. But still, I didn't realize, you know what I mean? I'm in show business. I've always been in show business. I kind of know how it works. They're my sibling, but they're not in show business. One of the things that you've joked about about your younger brother is that you used to tell me. So you're adopted. And I used to say they were, they were frog faced people, pretty soon you're ising going to pop out. Your eyes are going to pop out. How old were you when you stopped tormenting him?.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Visited Accused Jan. 6 Rioters in Jail

"Welcome back to one on one with Marjorie Taylor Greene. Marjorie, it's such an indictment of the business as usual, political establishment, not just the rhinos, but actually the GOP establishment that we've had hundreds of arrests. We've had the FBI chase down people who weren't even inside Congress on January 6th in Alaska. I've got friends telling me my friend was not even near Congress and they tracked her with the phone data. The phone company gave the geolocating data were you outside Congress, just insanity, the FBI hunting down these people instead of BLM or antifa. You are one of a handful of politicians, citizen politicians whose actually trying to get to the bottom of it and to fight for these Americans who are guaranteed by our constitution, a speedy, a speedy judicial process, you went to the prison, they refused you access you were so kind to call us after your visit for those who didn't hear your story. Tell us what you found when you went to this hellhole in D.C. where these people are being kept prisoner. I found something I never thought I'd see in our country. I found something that we've seen in movies and we hear stories about in other countries. I found out that what I thought was Internet rumors and not fully true, I found out it's all true. Everything we've been hearing is true about what's happening is January 6th defendants. Not only that I've talked to people who've had their homes raided by the FBI in the dark of night. I talked to one man and his wife, where they had handcuffed their child with handcuffed and she was dragged out in the front yard and nothing but a nightie and then the small town newspaper where they lived took a picture of her and put her on the front page of the newspaper, and that woman wasn't even in Washington, D.C. on January 6th. She was in California at home. And this is what's happening, but then I met people and Sebastian, I want to tell you I tried for months to get in that jail and several of my colleagues went with me, Louie gohmert, Matt Gaetz, Paul gosar, Andy Biggs, bob good. Those are the ones that have come along. They've been there every time, but they've definitely tried to. And I've tried every single time to get in. But finally, we went in, we were allowed for a tour of the whole jail. Well, I want to tell you we saw the whole jail. Except. Except the January 6th event in area, except the patriot wing. And then what did you do? Oh, I pitched a

Marjorie Taylor Greene Visits Jailed Jan. 6 Rioters: 'I'll Never Forget Hearing Their Screams'

"I saw a story about Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia Republican, who apparently is the along with Louie gohmert from Texas, are the only two members of Congress to visit the inmates arrested in connection to the January 6th insurrection. Now let's see, this is November the 9th 2021. I thought I would pull an article about this from like a hostile media organization. The left leaning organization like newsweek. So here's newsweek dot com. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene said that the inmates arrested in connection to the January 6th insurrection clapped cheered and cried. When she recently visited them in a Washington D.C. jail. Now to me, this story is so bizarre, how long are they supposed to be incarcerated? How long do you get for putting your feet up on Nancy Pelosi's desk? Or fighting with cops? Let me be clear here. The people who rioted on January 6th were reprehensible and stupid and reckless and wrong. You've never heard me defend the people who broke the law on January 6th. It was a reckless idiotic thing to do. I've never defended them. I've never called them patriots. I've never, I'm sorry. I do not condone the kind of violence that we saw by the hundreds of people who engaged in violence on January 6th. Now, having said that, how long are they supposed to rot in jail? Is due process not afforded these people? Is it that, is that a fair question to ask? Marjorie Taylor Greene and Louis gohmert visited the jail after the jail initially refused her previous requests to visit them. Green claimed that some of the inmates are suffering from a lack of medical care. Indeed, in a series of tweets, congresswoman green said I've never seen human suffering like I witnessed last night. I'll never forget hearing their screams.

Accept everything that you want and say yes to every whim an idea that you have you need people that love you enough to tell you the truth. That's what i love. My good shepherd says speak the truth in love and so you want people that love you but you also want people that are header view better than you. Some people that are smarter than you police. Some people who have succeeded where you have failed some people who have strengths where you have weaknesses. We are a part of a community My shepherd calls it a body Churches and a building you go to its friendships and relationships that make you better. Make you like your creator. And so a lot of people want everybody lesser than them at the table so they get the big dogs seats truth and you're never gonna get ahead if you're not hanging around with people that are smarter faster stronger and have more experience than you and are strong areas where you are weak and so humble yourself get good people at your table get people who know how to laugh and have a good time at your table and get people who will tell you the truth are got gotta run is louie giglio.

How's the status symbol of choice doing this show now almost thirty years and getting to Meet some of my heroes along. The way has been one of my great joys and then occasionally actually getting to become friends with them and even more than that getting to do some work with them from time to time. Today's no exception for that pastor. Louie giglio of passion church in atlanta good friend has stopped by with his new book. And we're so honored to have you with us here my friend. I couldn't be happier to be here with you. Congrats on the space. It's absolutely stunning. Well thank you thank you. You know you know about spaces with passion and the passion movement and fabulous books over the years. If you've never heard pastor louie giglio speak. i don't know where you've been. He's one of the top communicators in the world and You if you're in atlanta area always are anywhere you can catch him. Passion city church. I've had the privilege of speaking there and just wonderful people. Wonderful family of god. Good good folks. And i always like getting the hang out with him especially when we get to talk about a new book that he's doing called. Don't give the enemy a seat at your table. That's pretty straight on. It's really to the point. It's one of those books that you don't have to read the whole book. Do recommend the book. But i like the ones that you get the message on the cover. Total money makeover money makeover. That's what i need to do. Now you're gonna tell me how to do that. This is the message. Don't give the enemy seat at your table. If this enemy could come into paradise. Dave think about it paradise in lies way in to the hearts of mankind and say good. God isn't good and you can't trust him. if he can do that. In paradise he can definitely do it in my life. he could do it in anybody's doing on atlanta. He can do it in nashville. He can do it in dallas and houston. He can do it. When things are unraveling and it's not paradise if he could do it in paradise so we gotta watch what we think. We gotta be careful what thought we allow to take a seat at our table. You know this. Apparently my week for spiritual warfare Books and information are pastor. Our devotional yesterday was from kansas city. Spoke on the subject of of that. And it's just written a book on it as well. Read half of it this morning before it came to work and but but You know he was just making the point that that and you know this more than i do. But i also already knew it but i was good to be reminded very seldom does the enemy Come straight at you instead. He brings you something. That's ninety. Eight percent truth. Yeah i mean there's there's very few occasions where the enemy shows up and says. Hey i'm the enemy. I would like to rip your eyeballs out. Yeah i wanna destroy your marriage. I would like to destroy your confidence. I wanna take your business down now. He comes in that side door. Where where. I was. Actually when i got this message i've been to a about a four month battle and some things have been said some things have been done about four months and i get a phone call in the phone. Call is a bet. You've got one like this. You're not going to believe what happened. Today it was that moment of vindication and i reached out to a friend. And i said you're not going to believe what i just heard if you give things enough time I what did i want dave. I wanted commiseration. I want somebody just to come alongside and say hey man you're good and you were right but my friend knew i didn't need commiseration my friend that i sent a text to knew that i needed a wakeup call because i was acting like an orphan when on the son of a king and he sent me nine words in reply. Don't give the enemy a seat at your table in other words. His whole four months of consternation frustration. All this internal processing. You've been doing all that is because you let the enemy sit at your table and you need to take your thinking back. Starting today in that tax became the cover of this book the title of this book and that text as literally changed my life now over the last six eight years when you get pounded and I have been this year. You been this year. A lot of people have been this year by different things But i i mean i watched and and since you positive texture in that time as well and You know i we forget to do the basics like take every thought captive and instead we sit and it's almost like in the seventh grade at the lunch table. You know when you walk away and you got a now. I know what i should have said now. And you just play these tapes over and over and over and over and over again about how you're gonna hit back or how you're not gonna hit back or how you're going to do this all that all that is just you're playing right into this. Yeah that's what i'm saying you know. It's we want to control everyone if they really are. Honest wants to control and we don't control a lot like this global craziness that we're living in with no one's in control of that. So what are we in control of. Were in control of the truth. That god has given us for our lives and i think that you know when when we get in a moment like that what we normally do is just say okay. Great fear you're at the table. Worry you're at the table anger. You're at the table instead of going. Wait a minute where did you come from. And that's what this book talks about asking the thought. Where did you come from And if that thought doesn't line up with the character the purposes the heart and the word of god then. It didn't come from god brian. And if it didn't come from god it doesn't get a seat at the table and so you got to know the truth because you don't win this battle by fighting against the law you win this battle by embracing the truth. Now that's convicting and disgusting at the same time. Because i d i. I completely violated that. And i'm not like an immature person not mocking immature person spiritually or emotionally or anything else and i completely violated that. I can look back in the last months ago. I did that. They're that they're no better. This is a good reminder. Yeah we all know better. And i think the thing that what i would encourage people in in for me is you. Don't win the battle of your mind. One time you win the battle of your mind every day. That's god's word says renew your mind every single day keep renewing your mind to the truth and it's not something that you do and in walkaway from because Our minds are an open field to whatever seeds. Wanna get.

'Coming 2 America' Goes Heavy On Nostalgia

"Too heavily on nostalgia. Unless you're a huge fan of Eddie Murphy's classic 1988 film coming to America, and lots of people are there's not going to be a lot for you, and it's less than inspired sequel Coming to America. We celebrated her 30 years absolute and prosperity. 30 Years of service. Well, great nation on 30 Years off Delicious fast food. The new film begins with Murphy's Prince Akeem Joe Fair, opening a fast food restaurant called McDowell's in the African Country of Amanda Devote ease of the first movie. No. This chain is owned by Akin's American father in law, played by John Amos, who denies his business is in any way a rip off of another well known burger joint. They've got egg mcmuffins way that a mixed up in this way are also celebrating my new beyond big mix burger, So there's no meat. There's no meat. Maybe we're getting much better with Pepsi Call Max here are subtle as a sledgehammer. This scene mostly gives us an excuse to see Amos and Louie Anderson, who also appeared in the first film, The Story of the original movie was a black centered fairytale. Murphy's a keen came to America, Queens, New York, of course, tow avoid an arranged marriage and find true love in the new movie. After the death of his father, King Akeem discovered he fathered a son unknowingly in America. Teams return to Queens brings one of the Sequels funniest moments when he revisits a local barber shop where movie magic allows Murphy and costar Arsenio Hall to play multiple parts. Just like in the first film can't be both famine and blood. Damn, Nelson Mandela and Winnie just discovered that I may have a bastard son here in this land conceived during my last visit. How much data supports you getting from the King pays no child support. No time for 30 years and you came back. You're the damn it. Comic Jermaine Fowler plays the sun. Lovell Johnson, who brings King a came home to meet his mother marry played by Saturday night Live alum Leslie Jones. My African I told you he was gonna come back. So you know this man. I definitely know this man. I know this man all the way live much as I love Leslie Jones, she and levels. Other American relatives, including Tracy Morgan, as his uncle Come off is uncomfortable stereotypes as King Akeem introduces his son to the moonda and pressures him into an arranged marriage. Comedy gets clunkier and more predictable, like a Mel Brooks style parody of the Black Panther of The Lion King and the first coming to America. Ultimately, this coming to America is mostly an excuse to bask in the glow of characters who's shown so much brighter and distinctively. 33 years ago. I'm Eric Deggans.

"Matter who use but I just thought Even to this moment that we're in this pandemic and he's displaying all of these Disturbing mental unhealth sort of characteristics I find your breath of fresh air so whether or not you aware of the Goldwater rule is like you're willing to talk about it to write about it to to go on record about it and I think we need to hear from more and more mental health professionals like yourself. You know it's interesting that you say that. Because when I write for psychology today you get to choose a category addictions relationships and a new one that came within the past year so president trump. So I didn't realize it for myself until writing this like oh I can actually put my blog under the president. Trump category because psychology today has recognized a lot of mental health Clinicians like myself are writing about these variations related to president trump. And they've kind of given us the green light to do so. So there's I don't feel this. Gold goldwater standard me to be able to at least express this but sometimes I do get an opportunity to help. Educate clients About issues of race I remember. I had one white client and He was dating a Gal who they have a child. Spy logical. Father is African American. And then I think the client was griping. The white client was griping. Yeah you know when My girlfriend's son goes over to his DAD's house. Dad's always talking about. You gotta be you have to. You have to love your as you have to be proud to be African American and then my wife clients like why can't he just see himself are see this promote the Sunday you know? He should be proud to be an American first and foremost and so because there was enough. Trust with me. It's like well. You have to understand as a minority part of the identity of minorities is to actually think less of themselves because they may be teased or they may be stereotype so then they don't really learned as children to embrace their culture or ethnic heritage and it actually takes somebody a relationship or a program or a group of people to say. Hey you should be proud of your racial heritage. And so when he heard that he thought about it and kind of understood a little bit better than his initial. And why is data's trying to indoctrinate the sun into being a like you know pro black? You know because you've got to understand the messages of society. Yeah right right and it goes back to the white privilege of the boyfriend is just like you live every one of my colleagues when I was teaching seminary whose whose white male He's he he was pretty woke and He was on a panel at fuller and he said you know. I have so much white privilege that I never have to think about it. Yes right yes and that was one of the lines from my poem where it's like. Hey we're not going to focus on black or other ethnicities. We need to focus on white. Because so many folks don't understand The ratio privilege. And I'm reading a line from Dr Deangelis book where it says A lot of white people don't understand how their identity can grant them a lot of resources and these resources can include self worth visibility positive expectations and this is a big one psychological freedom from the tether of race freedom of movement the sense of belonging in a sense of entitlement to all of the above. So if you don't understand that you have psychological freedom and it takes so much new onto take space to be but a talk with people about these very issues too and unfortunately we live in Hr compliant environment like other guys. You can't say anything because anything is going to be construed as racism and you know the fear of being quote unquote seen as a racist. Now creates an environment. Of extreme hyper vigilant. So you can't even have honest dialogue about racial issues. Yeah why I think we have today. This is the most space I've been given outside of therapy. Good well you know. I think somebody takeaways one in particular that I've gotten from hearing from you today. Sam So appreciate is that even short of Asian Americans and Asians being harassed and and you know Heaven Forbid being victims of violence because of this racial izing of of the virus. But one of the things I heard US talk about was there is an impact a negative impact on Asian American. Self worth right. Yeah that so. That's like an invisible. A consequence of the ratio of the virus is we go back to being hypersensitive or maybe more more sensitive than we've ever known ourselves to be afraid to speak if we're able to speak native tongues afraid to dress in more ethnic sort of garb Kind of pressured to kind of blend in more into the passing white like to me. That's not getting enough airplay. People aren't talking about that but I think that's probably happening on a much broader scale to many Asian Asian Americans because of racial housing of the virus than even overt harassment and violence. And and I'm GonNa give you the last word to to just address that I think the psychological freedom to not have to worry about these issues is the big issue that a lot of white Americans don't understand. This is something that a lot of minorities have to face day. In and day out race is a lens through which we embrace our environment it hat. It's a factor. It's not the solo factor but it always sits there in the back of our brains and it does take a psychological toll. I think the toll is much higher in a very predominantly non-asian neighborhood. I grew up in an African neighborhood so that took a toll to that. I was the other And people don't realize that people keep thinking that this is about an ethnic issues like no we have to recognize. This is a white issue that continues to support a system of racism. Well I think that's that's the word that we can end on today. Sam Thank you for taking some time out of your self sequestering and I think this conversation that we've been able to today has been very very important. I think it's very enlightening. Thank you so much for all that you've been doing and continued to do to shed some some light in perspective on this issue. I hope a lot more than just. Our typical Asian audience will listen to this episode. Yes I'm hoping this would lead to a broader discussion where people can be more honest and authentic about issues of race. Maybe starting with this as the topic and then expanding from there. Yeah and that's my son backdrop. This is what working from home means. I think all our listeners.

"But there's a strong majority that leave and they will say. Hey you know as much as I you know. Love all these people. Why did you move like well? You know they're just making the schools to competitive or this or that K. They don't understand okay. Now you have some racialist presuppositions going on your actual deliberate move says something about your lack of ability to handle you can handle a sprinkle of minorities but there's a certain percentage where it's too uncomfortable. Yeah critical mass perfect. You don't like being the other or feels too much like the other. Well think about that. We are always the other you always deal with being the the minority but for some reason you know when it's flipped you find ways or other creative ways to justify you having to leave and that's just kind of a small component to help people understand Race does happen regardless of how you try to be blind to it and I think in a national sense The the the election of Donald Trump twenty sixteen and the whole make America great again The the immovability of his base is another reaction to the otherness of America. like the white majority historically have been the refs in the game and the major players and the coaches right and so as as there are other people of color growing faster in their populations. I think that's that's expose xenophobia. That's been simmering under the surface and for a lot of people of color who Americans have color we say. Yeah we hear Mega Make America. Great again make America white again and so I think it's not just white flight per se. I mean they're not they're not all GONNA moved to Montana. Right right. They don't WanNa live in Montana But there's a sense of okay. Then we're going to build walls and we're going to come up with more restrictive policies against people coming from non white countries not white countries. And we're going to race allies wherever we can to to make it clear to white people that they aren't or White. Americans that they aren't wrong to feel threat From coming from non white people especially as they grow in number and threaten our majority. You hear what I'm saying. Oh yeah there's something very threatening And we're starting to see it now. Because of the whole make America great slogan that's being emboldened by president trump right. I mean it's no coincidence. That people are being able to target Asian Americans even before all the caress because President trump has made it Permissible by whatever. He said Against Minorities Latinos Ethnic legislators right the whole nine judges so if the president can say it. Why can't kids say I mean that's what you know that K- kids are GonNa pick up on this way? The president said there's there's nobody nobody stopping him right right. Well now I really want you put your therapists on a hat on real strong here because I've also heard that maybe trump himself doesn't really believe in this race ising of the virus. What he's doing is what trump always does deflecting attention from the a horrible job the disaster he and his administration have done in the dismantling of dependent response to he right and all of that and all of the optics and hyperbole straight outlying about the response so what he's had a pattern of doing in the past is he'll say something outrageous not necessarily really believe he get himself because I don't know what he really believes and for us to react to that and for the meat it's part of the media to react to that is just falling into his trap. What do you what do you think sure I? I think that's a really good analysis because what race. What trump does is divert attention? It's no symbol. It's it's just the same as sometimes when I used to run therapy groups. Somebody would say something to take the responsibility off of him or herself in divert it somewhere else and so it's the same thing here like okay. Let's not focus. I'M GONNA divert it to this piece. I'm going to call it the Chinese virus so that I can take away the responsibility or the heat you know. He was getting a lot of heat. A regarding his lack of responsiveness or is inconsistent Paradoxical responses right like it's not a problem okay now at this problem and so a lot of people especially the press right. The press is closing in on him on his lack of accountability and responsiveness. So instead of saying hey you know what I screwed up. I could have done better. I could have responded quicker faster so on and so forth in calling it the Chinese virus everybody jumps on that right. Then now the focus gets obvious obfuscated and how much are we focusing on the lack of response time there was another interesting piece By the author of a new book He's a psychology professor at Northwestern University as called the strange case of Donald Trump. And I kind of warned you ahead of time. I wanted to get your opinion on this because he specializes in something. I hadn't heard of before called narrative therapy and he. He says you know I've been doing this. Particular work over twenty years and that healthy mentally healthy people have an inner narrative. that There's an art to it. They they identify their points of struggle and failure. But there's some redemption like they've learn certain lessons he says. My assessment of our current president is that he is episode like. He doesn't have a narrative everything to him is good and evil and he has to be the hero and so so he's he doesn't think of the past. He has no capacity to to to dwell there. He doesn't actually fast forward into the future. Like what might the consequences of saying Chinese virus war? He's like always in these episodic moment where he's feeling attacked and so he's going to say whatever to himself and to to the world that makes him come out the hero and someone else has to be the thug this whole narrative episodic versus episode until. I read the article but I did find a phrase in there that I thought was very apt. The author used the term fake authentic. Yeah the ice while that kind of made me pause for second. Trump is a no authentic fake? Maybe that was to us. He's an authentic fake Which is a Moron Ush? That's right? He doesn't stand for anything yet. At the same time he still wants to be viewed as as the king as as the hero Without having his own you know heroes have to go through a challenge right. Here's a personal challenge. Not just blow back from the public And he's I don't ever see him talking about his own vulnerabilities taking into account the he's made mistakes. Oh speaking which I think in a press briefing a one hour press briefing. There was a twenty second pause. Came out of nowhere from from Where he said. Hey Asian Americans are great people. They're awesome. Let's protect him. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah but like this. Doesn't this doesn't mean anything just because you got pressure from your own administration and from the media saying you shouldn't do this like hey we're is the responsibility to collectively take a breath and Or you know individually take breath and pause and say hey listen. I have grieved a lot of people with my statements. These are hurtful statements. This has led to An increase in racial hatred or lease on suspicion. Right out of the mildest. And there's a lot of suspicion and wariness around Asians in general at least say that as opposed to just this twenty-second. They're they're great people. They don't hurt them. I mean that doesn't really mean anything to me. So there's a lack of accountability and taking responsibility for any. I don't even want to call it. Failure J just but for any missteps. Yeah Yeah but going back to yours pulling out this authentic fakery. Yeah Even if he said exactly what you said if he went beyond his twenty-second Asian Americans greet people too. I think from a psychological perspective. I can't believe that he means anything he says. Beat because he doesn't have rooting like and that now in this narrative right i. It's like he says whatever he thinks in the moment that will make him look better. I'm trying to think of a tree with no roots. Just GonNa fall over and I and I think that's that's what know in when listens to this podcast a regular basis. I'm no big Fan of you. Know President Trump and just from politics aside policies aside I joined that chorus of people who say this person is just mentally. Psychologically character wise unfit to be in the Oval Office. And I think this pen. Global pandemic is exposing all of that like he can't he can't attack the virus the way he can attack a group of people right he right and so it's it's exposing his his utter lack of willingness to learn. Something really mean that. He's made a mistake but he's he's he's now a better leader for that. You don't talk about you know. There was an exchange with a White House correspondent were the guy just gave President Trump. Just kind of a basic question like hey what do you want to say to the American public who might be afraid neater Alexandria? He mentioned a trump mmediately went on the attack and says hey you work for NBC or somebody so is inability to lead so something about that. Question made it very difficult for him to respond in a very honest authentic and truthful manner. Because you're right to reassure a public through a public health crisis means you have to have gone through something yourself so you can reassure the public. There's no reassurance. Because he couldn't do it you know. I think he was deliberately attacking him because he saw that question as to threatening to expose his real self. You wouldn't have anything to say is what I really think. Now as we get near the end of our time I gotta ask you like. You've you've said some things as a licensed therapist that I think in the beginning of trump's presidency Mental Health Professionals Kinda felt like they had to abide by this goldwater ruled. The you know what I'm talking about the Goldwater rule Remind me what that means. Okay the gold so the Goldwater rule was when Barry Goldwater was running for president and he was a real hawk and so he was saying that he was willing to go to full out nuclear war against the Soviet Union. If if need be and so I think the American Psychiatric Association they got psychology today to come out with an article that said Barry Goldwater is unfit mentally to be the president of the United States and and so Barry Goldwater group successfully sued. Whoever put that article out saying he's not been your patient you've not examined him This is misuse of your professional capacity and their hand was slapped so hard that ever since going forward mental health professionals that I've talked to said Oh I have all kinds of opinions of a halt like president trump. But I'm kind of held in check by this thing called the Goldwater rule and I had Dr Bandy X. Lee from the Yale Forensic Psychology Psychiatry School. She came out with a book called the dangerous case of Donald Trump and twenty seventeen where she said we are not breaking the Goldwater rule. Be and here's why she said because in this case president trump has given us all of us. Enough video footage. He said enough things in public that as a mental health professional. If he wasn't the president and I heard someone going off like this or showing utter lack of capacity for empathy. Right or trying to stop violence. I would invoke a seventy two hour. Involuntary Hope Right now. It's just never going to happen. And she was saying. But that's why I think we need to have a resident psychiatrist. You know in in the White House no.

"Somebody who's been traumatized in in. Let's say in therapy. They're going through trying to go through some healing but it takes time it takes discourse the other party needs to engage. You can't just keep telling me as a spouse to get over it because that's now not allowing me space to process the feelings of hurt Martyr Margalla marginalization betrayal and. So that's what happens nowadays for all a lot of racial issues. Hey get over it. You know. We're in a post racial period. I hate that term like. Hey we've checked off the box. I took a cultural competency class. I've multiracial children. You know married a black man. I mean th th the whole nine yards right. I Have Asian friends This is non Asian. Asian friends aren't offended. When I say Chinese fiber correct correct same category of justifying that their feelings I it's once again to prop up the system at the end of the day. The marginalized group does not get To have well they get to have their say. But who's the one that gets to make the decision who gets to to draw the rules? The laws implemented change right or doesn't implement change. Yeah and I think you're one of your initial points was with kind of white normalcy. A white superiority. It's like well whites are used to being the ones to kind of say what's fair. And what's foul like? They're the ones ref they're the ones roughing the games and so the matter how much you're protesting. Hey I just got fouled. This is like now that was ticky tack right now when we get. We get back to Asian Americans. Because we're not a monolithic group. A who are saying well look I. Don't take offense to it. No one's either. No one's harassed me or yes. They have harassed me and I smiled back and turn the other cheek to me. And I'd love to hear your input on this to me. That's still saying so because this is an issue for me for whatever reason I have not experienced it or I'm choosing to deal with it in this way. Then I'm dismissing everybody else's complaints that is dismissing and I don't know what goes into the psyche of somebody who is Asian or Asian American or. I could take my parents. I don't think they care because they're immigrants they don't they don't really understand the historical issues regarding Racism here in this country especially against Asian. So they're like they might not really care that it's quote unquote Called the Chinese virus or the Wuhan Virus. I really don't think my my parents are some of my uncles. Who immigrated much later in their lives care but at the same time. They're not the ones pushing and say. Hey I'm a grown man and I've moved past this and whenever I hear that I think it has something to do with their own. Their own processing of what their their own identity is and how they Recognize Asian American. And maybe they don't like the discomfort of of challenge right. They don't like that. You know we come from a history of harmony I mean. That's kind of how culturally Asian Americans or Asians come from collective society where we're based on harmony in not really embracing Dischord so to say this is wrong. Directly to somebody it's a very individualistic or European mindset and maybe that causes a lot of Individual Discomfort for some folks. Yeah I I also wonder if in those cases there there's a certain passing as white and I'm sure you're familiar with that girl will year right so so it's like hey by you making a point of this you're messing with my passing as white right like I'm blending in. I maybe have married a non Asian person. Maybe married a Caucasian person. You know and I have multiracial kids. And I have a certain job and a career where I'm in a predominantly white sending or a or. I need white people to come frequent my business to an end. So like and I don't know how much they're purposely consciously an in touch with this. Maybe as a motivating factor. But I wonder if part of this is saying like I don't dare go join you in that concern even if I've never personally experienced this because it could mess with my livelihood and or it could. It could mess with my passing his white. Yes so I think you hit the nail on the head because if it impacts your economic livelihood you're going to be least likely to Voice I just to be a challenging voice because even when I did this Spoken Word Paul and put it out there. I'm like Oh you know I could be losing some gigs at colleges. Because I need some work at colleges about multicultural this or that and who knows somebody could take this out of context and say hey you know. This guy is a racist right. They could call me. He's he's against white people te right so I was like well. You know I understand that that. That's the risk of standing up to a but there are some things that need to be said. So yeah you're right. I think it could impact them either economically politically or if they are maybe they do pass right. The people understand that if you pass enough I if you're accepted enough as the mainstream you know some are here more with African Americans. Oh you know. We don't treat you as blog. You don't sound Black Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. We accept you as one of our own and then to say hey I'm actually going to stand for this issue. It could create a rift either in their relationships personal relationships. They're work relationships and You know that all has potential consequences. Yeah night I think you mentioned before you're wondering if you're writing this column and you're putting up this spoken word piece that's GonNa have negative consequences on your future client load. So so I think in some ways That that opens this dialogue. We're having here Sam to to the idea of knowingly choosing to put certain things certain privileges on the line for a greater good right So so part of part of the online dialogue. That's been going on in. The people are saying get over it and why I'm choosing this mound. Turn the other cheek. Who Are Christians are saying? Well that's because that's what Christians should do okay and I push back. I think a little bit gently and I said well. That's interesting because because my understanding of being Christian is not just turning the other cheek. But it's the sense of justice that if you have privilege but other people don't whether they look like you were not that then you can leave your throne. You leave your place of privilege and you speak up and you speak out to get justice for everybody right especially the powerless and marginalized and so kind of what I am reading into your own choices. Sam Is that you have taken this risk. Both because I think you're a Christian but because of your greater sense of what is right and so you go okay. I may get fewer clients that our nation you know but I can't keep silent. I'm losing sleep over this. You know what I'm saying and I think it kind of boils down to four some folks being Christian and there are a lot of different camps It's just an individual kind of personal morality. Piety thing and you lose this sense of Kingdom of God and justice for all and and I feel like you can kind of predict how people could come down on the race. Aligning of the virus kind of on their theology and their political affiliations. Right and you know. I think if there are Christian my way of imploring them is when you use the phrase get over it or this is a past issue. You're taking the issue off the table. Now you're dictating the conversation. What about you or your background makes so uncomfortable to continue the dialogue? What makes it difficult to hear the other person? This just happens to be Issue ABOUT ASIAN AMERICANS. But I'm sure this same ideology ideological thought process of get over. It is if they're going to say this about the corona virus and Asian Americans. They're going to say the same thing about African American issues. Latino issues and so the I want them to think. Okay if you're a Christian person man or woman what makes it so difficult to engage? What is the why the immediate reaction to shut down in? It could lead to this whole misunderstanding of racist not racist that it's just either or dichotomy or it could tack tap into their own toxic. Shame right we don't want shame to we don't want people to feel shamed. We want people to understand what is healthy guilt. What does reconciliation look like And then I guess the larger piece. All of this is understanding. That racism isn't isn't just an an event or a individualize behavior. Yes it is but it's also a larger system that impacts so many areas of our lives and we could be blind to it. You know whether it's the political system the criminal justice system educational system housing. You name it it. It's it impacts everything and we're all complicit in it if we don't really take a look at it and I might want to add. I got some. I did have one good exchange with somebody and she says she's. I don't know multinational or part native American or so on so forth but from her picture she could quote unquote pass as white and kind of her theory was. Why why do we have to even You know bring this up. It's you know these issues. Why can't we just? I think she's a Christian. She was like you know if somebody says something negative to. Why can't you just turn the other cheek and see something Nice back right? Well you don't understand some people arguing beat. You can't really do that. And you know what her response was her response was. I actually. Don't watch the news so I don't really like to listen to these things and you know what this is. The part that bugs me like if you don't follow current events and you choose to ignore issues related to race that actually continues to prop up a system of racism that perpetuates right at all. But you know. I don't think they can see that at first blush right and he came to me. It goes back to while. I don't believe I'm racist and honor experienced racism and I don't throw racism so these are just individual isolated incident. It's not systemic. It's not cultural. Hey We've already had a black president for two terms you know. It's at post racial thing again. And that drives me nuts in some of my trainings. I have them think about other things like okay. Hey have you heard of the term white flight? Okay yes I have so. Some studies have shown that when a neighborhood hits seven per cent African American white flight starts to happen. But then there was another study that Showcased a more multicultural Were South Asian or Asian Americans. They they go into a neighborhood. That's predominantly are there. Middle-class are fluent White America. But then you see the same thing at a certain percentage they all leave..

"I don't know if you've heard of that book shirt white fragility. It's written by a University of Washington sociologist. She's actually a white a sociologist. And you know it's white fragility why it's so hard for white people talk about racism and that term or that phrase of all all's. I don't see it as racism. It's not racist. I'll be the judge of that. All of that falls under her umbrella under the title white fragility in the sense that a lot of white Americans have not developed any racial stamina to talk about issues of race so the initial gut reaction is one of defensive. They could do. A number of things They could turn outward and just withdrawal and just not talk they can turn turn inward and feel a lot of internal shame and guilt or They can turn against one another and get very combative and defensive so she has a really good point because the term racist is so. It's such a strong charge. That people don't WanNa hear it in what she's trying to say that it's not just the Good bad binary. But we're on a continuum Because if it's just all good or all bad. Nobody wants to say that. Their comment was racist. Nobody can acknowledge that where she saying. Hey we have been socialized in a world not just in the US with throughout this world. We have race assumptions. We have reached so prejudices. We have ratio views. Either from family families through media through Through institutions we have these deeply embedded in. We need to be able to recognize that. It's it's on a continuum and stop seeing it as all good or all bad yet. Now I've also seen some video clips of Non White People Non Asian people also Spewing this and reacting negatively against Asian looking people That's not why fragility. So how do you talk about that? Well I mean that feeds into the institution of or the history of xenophobia. That whenever there's a crisis of this and Asians unfortunately You know there's always that perpetual foreigner stereotype that we're never going to be American enough so we always are on the brunt of in a crisis like this. There's a lot of animosity. There's a lot of Stereotypes targeting us as the problem and so it leads to there's no. It's it's not a coincidence that there's been a rise of bullying teasing and just outright physical and verbal assaults of Asians and Asian Americans here in the US as a result of this. Yeah and I'M GONNA get bringing it onto a much more personal over for both of us social because because I know that your work Broadly also deals with Asian Asian. Birkin shame and and I'll be honest with you SAM As as I now infrequently go out in public like yesterday I had to go to. Cvs TO PICK UP A prescription. And I can't remember feeling so. Hyper aware of my otherness Of My Asian nece then right now right and I and I'm thinking okay if I if I don't wear masks because I've read it doesn't help and actually can actually kind of hurt you but then do some people see an Asian without a mask as. Oh you're you're going to spread the virus right or if I'm wearing a mass than the assume I'm I I'm finding there's an unrelated to shaming thing. But there's a sense of ill unease in my person hood just being out in public that. I haven't experienced since I was like a little kid in elementary school. You know what I'm talking about you kind of run into that yourself. Well personally. I feel a certain sense of hyper vigilance. I've always felt it growing up and obviously less so when I was living in L. A. because it was so diverse but now back here in Washington state is kind of divided by the mountains. The Cascade Mountain Range Between East and West and even before this hit a couple of months ago. I went out there to do some. I also do some basketball refereeing for. Jv and Varsity But there was a special Olympics thing that I I did brought my wife in a son out there and my wife's. Gosh when we go into these restaurants wherever I just feel like everybody's looking at us like well they probably are because they're not used to seeing very many Asians out here in eastern Washington. That's just the way it is In you know you just have to. You're just aware of that. You're just more hyper vigilant. Whenever you're in a predominantly Caucasian area now regardless of what area. You're you're in Whenever I sneeze. I'm a lot more like aware of the racial implications. This could have because of my Asian American identity. Even my profile on psychology today made me realize H- as much as I say White America. You should recognize. You're white privilege agency. How much you? You don't have to deal with racial issues because I am an Asian American therapists. I don't think I had to deal with this before. And what I mean specifically is when people scroll through my profile and they want to see a therapist whether I'm white or Asian I. It didn't matter right. They would choose me and might at the very least just be very neutral or they might see me as a pleasant experience because they've never had a lot of Asian American interactions in general. But now. I'm very wary because when people see my face. Oh what are they gonNA say? How many knows am I gonNA get because if there because they don't want me because they don't want anything to do with anybody? Who's Asian American? But it also gave me a deeper sensitivity of what African American therapists have to endure or African American male therapist. If I was an African male male therapist here what are people going to see? How many not clients do I get? Because there's like you know what I can identify with a black man who is a therapist. Nope NOPE I might be able to identify with an Asian guy or White Guy Black. And that's not being Racist per se or making your stereotype. It's me being more sensitive to my owned ratio advantage as much as I talk about other. You Know White America White Privilege. I also come with some advantages to. Have you noticed that you refrain from speaking Chinese in public like? That's not an option for me. Be Speaking Speak Cantonese and I would say mom dad. I'm not talking to you guys in public. I'm not nope just cannot just cannot and I tell other people. I warned other people are actually not to do that. Some people would say. Hey Sam you know there They wouldn't have you know. Some Asians might be a little bit more on the What's the right word? They just don't care they don't care about the racial is term like you know. I don't think it bothers me because they're more newer immigrants. I said well then go ahead and walk down the street in a white neighborhood speaking your native tongue and see what happens. Yeah Yeah so you're saying there. So I I would venture to to label that as this kind of welling up of a personal shame that you didn't have before all this racial icing the virus or maybe not to this degree not to this degree there was always there because I worked in various places around the country and race was always a concern like my first broadcasting job in Montana was in Montana and I wonder to myself what am I going get myself into. Will they so? The question was at twenty or twenty one. Will they accept Asian people in Montana? That was my question back in the late. Eighties early nineties me so prevalent but maybe not to this extent where I would tell myself nope. I'm crossing off even if it was safe to travel We're not going to be traveling for vacation to Yellowstone National Parker Glacier National Park or national parks. Were there in states. That are predominantly more white. 'cause I just don't want to subject my wife and child to possibly the realities of any overt Racism Yeah. Our daughter is among many of the college. Students were sent home right so she was telling us that On one leg of her trip from Seattle back here to southern California she was on the South Southwest Airlines flight. And you know this just by Letter and so she was in the bees or something like that and and so there was already when she boarded the plane There was an Asian young man up against the window. Then there was to empty seats middle and I'll and then there's all these other seats and she just all these non Asian people not choose to sit in that guy's row sure right they just kept doing and so my daughter just parked herself in his row and new that no one was going to sit in the middle seat so she was always saying. I'M GONNA use it to why advantage so I'll see other people to skip our road because O- Heaven Forbid data want to spend this next hour seating between two people might have this virus. You know that reminds me of a friend of mine. She came back about two weeks ago from Niagara Falls and I asked her well. How was the flight back? Or how did you experience any racism? She was like well not Niagara Falls. Nobody was there but on the plane. Ride back I was in the aisle seat. There is a white woman in the window seat and she just kept leaning and leaning and leaning away and so do we call that unconscious bias. Do we call that? Are they aware of that bias? And then I had another friend in Pasadena. She said she was at some Bagel shop. In you know everybody was social distancing you step on us you stand at the acts but so she was with her husband and her toddler son and then the clerk says hey you all three of you need to stand six feet apart. And she was like why we're all together. We're all family in in. You know the clerks no social distancing corona virus so on and so forth. But then my friends said. Hey but what about that? Family that Latino family is together like you're you're only singling like is there something going on here now so I mean this comes up time and time again in so many different incidents even prior to corona virus where Asian people are singled out because I worked with a lot of Asian clients who grew up in very predominantly white neighborhoods and. They're just he's mercilessly but nobody ever knows about it. But then you know they come into therapy because part of the Work is how do you work through some of that? Well I want to bring up in. This is a good segue because when I've posted various articles on how race racist this is I. There's this one picture where someone some reporters and photographers did. A close up of president trump's notes and it said Corona virus and he crossed out with his little sharpy and he wrote Chinese right. So so it's it's really clear about this attention so I post stuff like this and I am really taken aback by some of the responses of Asian American People were part of my social media circles who are sounding Well one of two voices one I hear is oh come on their bigger fish to fry like we should be trying to find a cure for this. But it's like get over it you know and and it and then some ticket even more than they take while all this pushback against what trump is it is still the liberal mainstream media. You're just promoting left leaning in this coming from a Chinese person and and so it's like okay. I don't even want engage that person and then I hear from other people who are Asian American who say hey. I was that kid growing up in an all white school all White Environment. I was you know. Ching Chong mercilessly and all that stuff but I'm a grown ass man now And I'm a Christian and so I just smile when they look at me askance or they say these things and I just turn the other cheek like again. That's another form to me of get over it right and What do you say that I you know? They're not white well. Can I bring in a therapeutic analogy the whole game so I also work with men and women who are dealing with sexual infidelity and addiction work and so sometimes I'll get couples where the spouse might say? Hey I know I've betrayed your nerve hurt shoe but that was the pass. Why can't you get over it? Why can't you get over it even though you know like regardless of usually this is they're saying this within the past six months or year or they have a the everybody has a at least therapy wise? They have a threshold of how long it should take before. An issue should be resolved so kind of in that same manner when we talk about racial issues. I think people have a mental threshold. Were like okay. We allows for so much blowback but at some point. When is this group going to get over it? So whether it's about African American Issues. A now the Asian American issue of the the corona virus and calling it the Chinese virus. Okay we've given you your time in space now winner. You're going to get over it. But we're we're talking about betrayal here Betrayal and this takes time this trauma..

"Focuses on Asian Americans. Obviously we want to talk about issues that directly impact asian-americans are right now with this novel. Grown virus cove in nineteen There has been a racial of the virus by starting with the president of the United States. And and some of the people that are part of his administration and one of the people that I immediately noticed and new to reach out to is my old friend prisoner Sam Louis. Who's a therapist up in the Seattle area but he also before was a journalist and so on one more thing. He's spoken word poet and so I know right now you have to subscribers on Youtube and I wanNA help blow that up so sam before you say anything about what we want to talk about. I I would love for you to actually do your recent spoken word piece on this sure so you want me to just dive right in dive right in okay. The title is a history of complicity. You think I'm diseased uncouth the enemy but if you looked in the mirror or deeper into your psyche below the surface unconscious bias hatred prejudices. Why all because of outlandish stereotypes caricatures in lies my reality denied to ease your guilt. Your shame your history of complicity in fostering racial hostility native Americans turned into Indians. Seen as mascots for your entertainment blacks enslaved and once considered just three fifths human families raped separated generations later community segregated wiped clean from your conscience out of sight out of mind. Great Scott you declare. It's their problem separate but equal no. That's not fair. And it's dread Scott to be clear whom you date freedom to to one into all fast forward to now like Tom. Sawyer and huckleberry Finn Whitewashing History to avoid your original Sin White Flight. Urban Decay joblessness. It's a facade to think your race has nothing to do with all this white privilege in invisible shield to deflect any notion white skin plays a role amidst all this commotion White Fragility also weapon. Eu's tears dejection shame. As well as misdirection to obscure and to blame you failed to take ownership of how this perpetuates inequality the game of life disguised as a field of dreams but go ahead spin the wheel. Take two steps forward. If you're white everyone else go to the back. Oh the horror to bring light to darkness to focus not on black but on white so you can hopefully see you're not innocent. You ARE NOT SCOT-FREE HISTORY. Repeating itself not with explicit slavery but with subtlety suspicion and once again white fragility sandwiched between slavery and civil rights. Asians come to America seen as a race. That won't fight instead. We're the easy scapegoat. The laughing stock the punching bag. Today's ills the perpetual foreigner. The Stranger the ones viewed with the virus the carriers infecting and killing. But not once. Have you considered? What's your part in? All of this. Like virus use spread the fear the vitriol. The hate. It's you who control the messages. The media the movies that disseminate racial divide statistics that lie names narratives and stories at high the social educational political institutions that. Keep our country confused conflicted in a system of invisible racism that should be considered illegal and illicit. But only if you own up to see how you're still to this day ultimately complicit. Wow that is such a comprehensive peace. Thank you for starting off this episode by sharing that Sam. It sounds like you've been pretty inspired recently to to really make some statements about what's happening this racial ising of this novel. Corona viruses at true inspired can't sleep bothered Just really conflicted and disturbed by everything because I focus a lot of my work on a multicultural counseling And you know that includes not only Asian Americans but also African Americans Latinos as well. So you know there's a strong contingent of clients who are just Had always been concerned about racial issues in the past. Now this this most recent incident just brings the Spotlight back on Asian Americans. Yeah and before you actually publish this spoken word piece. You wrote a column. In the MINORITY REPORT FOR PSYCHOLOGY. Today magazine called rationalizing. The Corona virus white trump's description of it is the China or Chinese virus validates racial hatred talk. About what what you put into that for those who haven't had a chance to really because it kind of went viral and then I would like to kind of hear the responses. You've been getting with the publication of this piece which I thought it brought together so well your previous career as a journalist. I read with such a to me credibility in that way but also with the insights of therapist. Sure so when I first heard the term The Chinese virus I was thinking. Oh here we go again right. Another attempt at Xenophobic targeting of Asian Americans. So I had to write something down. That wasn't just on this per se but this is kind of a microcosm of the larger issues. Not only Asian Americans have had but also How difficult it is for Americans in general mainstream America to talk about issues related to race and I use the term. Racial Izing it. Because that's what's happening is when trump made that comment and it's Continued to be supported by a lot of other folks who read the ball Augert. You know giving me negative feedback on it. You know they believe there's nothing wrong with calling it the Chinese virus because they said it originated from China but they don't understand the racial implications of that right and I think it's indirect disregard of the twenty fifteen world. Health organizations basically mandate about how they're going to name diseases going forward that they're no longer going to be tagged with geographic regions or a racial things. Because of the very thing you said that it tends to stigmatize maybe forever like Zeka and he bola and and I think some of the arguments some of the pushback. I've I've been reading and hearing as well. What are what about the Spanish flu right. And it's like well that didn't even originate in Spain. They were not involved in the war but forever. It's it's now associated with Spain right. Who gets to make the narrative and then just because it happened. Then does that mean. It's acceptable now in one thousand. Nine hundred thousand women didn't have the right to vote Civil Rights were ninety four. Thought so what does that mean what? We don't understand the logic behind some of this just because it happened in that means we should still allow allow for it to occur today. You know back back totally acceptable to call African Americans the N. Word Does that mean we should go back to the nineteen eighteen term and In one thousand nine hundred and the Chinese exclusion act of eighteen. Forty two was still in place so there are a lot of things that historically we have apparently advanced from and so it is disturbing to me and to you and too many people out there that starting with the president of the United States. They're like consciously disregarding the W. H. O. Directive. Which is why they name this the novel. Corona virus right and like well so so when the president himself says well. It's not racist right. And that's what a lot of people who are are are saying it's not racist. They're saying well the president says it's not racist UNPACK You know unpacked that Kibera. Can let's let's entertain for just two seconds that he himself doesn't think it's racist even though he has such a track record of racism and xenophobia. Yeah so I. I try not to take a lot of these things personally. Because I do some trainings with therapists and other Businesses that want to understand it so part of it it goes back to. What exactly is the intention? So when I think about and I try to play devil's advocate okay. Trump is trying to send a strong message to China in unequivocal terms that this started in China. That's his intent if if I believe that to be true. It wasn't racist or malicious in that regard. He wants to just send this message that he's going to stop Chinese propaganda that it originated in The US somehow or the US military started. Okay so maybe the intent could be well intentioned so this Ricard's not just trump but anybody who says something an off color joke or does this or that Based on racial stereotype and somebody gives them feedback. Like Hey I just want to let you know I find that offensive disturbing and maybe quote unquote racist so. Initially there's a trigger reaction That a lot of folks get to get. It's not racist because I was well intentioned. It never had the intent. I never intended for this to hurt X. minority group right. So that's the intention piece but what I try to help. Educate folks okay. We have intention but then we also have the impact. What IS THE IMPACT. So we have. They're not they're they're separate and if you conflict the to and say hey you know what my intention Was well meaning. It wasn't racist than even if there is an impact. That's racial is. You're not going to be able to see how that has impacted it so for trump. If he says my intention was to send to stop the Chinese government from this propaganda okay great. I'll take that at face value. But President Trump. Do you realize the impact of that statement has led to a racism xenophobia? And so that's where my argument is on this particular piece. Yeah to me You've just classically defined what minibus knows microaggressions. Yes right right. So because and that's more insidious kind of formed regression compared to macro aggression where someone is straight up going. No I intend to be. Racist is a lot of times. The person who's issuing a micro aggression not really regarding the impact the negative impact of their statement. They're just put my intentions. Were not racist right so therefore you are off base saying you know this. I taught a class on a micro aggressions on sexual gender identity. And I and I was trying to get people who weren't necessarily on board with you know what I was going with this. I said I'm GonNa give you an example of micro aggression that has nothing to do with gender or sexual identity or even race and I think it's a low hanging fruit that you'll understand as soon as I tell you the example right and so they go. Okay I said so my wife and I. After seven years of struggling to get pregnant with infertility we finally adopted a child gay. And so we've been very open about it. We don't hide that. We became a family three adoption but every once in a while people who know that they will come up and they'll say hey soon as the last time your wife saw her mom. Your daughter saw her mother now. I know what they mean right but I'll just kind of pretend like I don't get it so this morning at this morning at breakfast and then they give me this kind of puzzled. Look and they go. No you know what I mean her. Real mom okay now and. I shared this with my my class. Everyone's groaning right here. Because they they know our story right right and then. I'll I'll play a little bit like I said. Oh well her real mom. She'll see her again tonight after school when we get back together for dinner and then if the person says no her actual mom okay. Now I said if my wife was standing next to me if when this person was going back and forth like this she would already be in tears impact now right and I would say. Look I only was sensitized to the adoption issue because we became a family through adoption. I'm sure I've stepped in that dumb pile myself. Okay but going forward. I go that part of our story and then tell the person look. I know what you're trying to ask so. Let me give you some vocabulary. That doesn't hurt. Our feelings doesn't open okay. So we se her birth mom so so if the person says whatever her mom. Oh right then I say well. We're done because clearly. I've explained to you the negative impact of your choice of terminology right and yet you keep pushing that and at some point you don't care and that's that's the feeling I'm getting in this. Racial Housing of the virus is ultimately. You don't care about the People. This is hurting. Because you're seeing your intentions are good right. Is that a good example of what we're talking about. I think that's a great example but it also shows the humility that you have that we all step in that. Deng ourselves right. There are teaching moments where we're not trying to be We're not trying to be militias and we're not trying to file a complaint against HR. We're just saying. Hey when you use that fraser that term. I don't know if you really understand the impact that has so. Let me give you another one like you know there's the old one back in the When I was growing up in the Eighties Oriental Your Oriental. Like actually no. I've taken some Asian Americans that he's classes and now I realize that Oriental Refers not only to rugs and so on and so forth but There's a deeper piece. The Oriental is East from which perspective right? It's easy from a North American Eurocentric point of view the oriented east of of Europe. But we don't see ourselves as that so please call us Asian or Asian American. Yeah and and there's a history of fetish izing with the term oriented right. So what if somebody says While I'm going to be the judge of whether it's racist or not because only I know my intention so that also falls under the term of white fragility..

"louie" Discussed on Asian America: The Ken Fong Podcast

"Ken Foam Welcome to episode number. Two hundred thirty seven where we revisit this issue of racial ising the novel Krona Virus with my guest today and old friend and prisoner Sam Louis Sam used to be broadcast journalist and he is currently marriage and family therapist up in the Seattle area and I hadn't thought about him for a while. And then I came across in my news feed a column. He wrote for the magazine. Psychology today called racial ising. The Corona Virus. Why President Trump's description of the novel? Krona viruses that China virus validates ratio hatred. I will say that At the time he wrote in That in headed published The president had yet to back away from Is Use of that term He has since done that as the recording. This particular episode. But that doesn't mean that the problem of racialism of the novel coronavirus isn't still a problem for many Asian Asian American people and I just really appreciated What Sam brought to this particular column a he had written a couple of other previous columns that had to do with very similar Aspects one was called the krona virus and Asians Phobia and one other one was whitewashing. Dimona fisheries of racism. And so I immediately reached out to Sam and Invite him to come on and I think you'll really really appreciate the frank and sensitive way that an informed way that he he addresses a wide. This is hugely problematic. We will continue to bring other guests on to this program as There are still problems out. There that relate to Asian Americans and this particular pandemic I was unabashed early. Fan and supporter of Andrew Gang when he was running for the Democratic nomination to be president of the United States way back in June of twenty eighteen just a few months after he had declared his candidacy. He came on this podcast and As soon as I finish up that episode I started supporting him to the tune of ten dollars a month all up until the month that he actually dropped out so if do the math and math was his little acronym. I don't need to two hundred dollars to his campaign now. That's not a giant amount of money. But it's the most that I've ever contributed anybody running for president and it wasn't because simply he wasn't Asian American and I was just excited to support in Asia. Merkin. I was excited that he was Asian Bergen and running for president and even one as far as he did but it was really because I liked his ideas. I especially appreciated and valued his focus on how automation and official intelligence and robots were continuing to steal jobs jobs disappear with no replacement jobs and that was the basis where his ub I universal basic. Income I was more keen on him adding that concern to the democratic debates which I think he succeeded to a small degree but I also was impressed with his character. A one of the things that still resonates with me is when I asked him the bar interview. You know just where he stood as far as any kind of religious faith and I really was blown away that he was just honest with me and he said well. I wasn't raised with any religion but I've married someone who's buried about Christian and custom very devout Christian family and so we as a family go to church every Sunday. Our kids are in Sunday school but I could. You know personally tell you that. I'm I'm not a place yet where I can say that. I am a Christian and you know I thought man you know he could have easily just with all that evidence he could be said that but he says No. I'm I'm highly impacted by the person of Christ and his teaching and I think you can see that in much of the platform that I've built for my candidacy but yeah I'm not quite there yet. So you know anyway I. I was very excited about him as a candidate. Not just because he was Asian American. And so you know he was going on with this campaign and then you know there's a couple times were a lot of Asian Americans. Were really upset with him because of some of the things he would say like. Oh I'm Asian so I know a lot of doctors and I tried to defend him as best. I could one because I felt like he and I had a chance to have an hour long conversation. I felt like I knew where he was coming from. Inside and number two I felt like well come on. You know he's running for the highest office in the land. He can't sound like an Asian homer. E Can't you know? Just take the side of Asian Americans to to the apparent disregard of anybody else and I felt like president. Obama ran into similar. Things After you know he he won his two terms. Because there are some SPECI- African American friends who would say well? He doesn't seem very black anymore and I would say well you know He. It's it's a tough position to be in where you can't look like you're just trying to represent people that look like you. Okay so I. I kept supporting him through through all of that. Well somewhat recently. He came out with an OP. Ed Piece in The Washington Post and in this op ED piece Yang urged Asian Americans to combat a recent surge in anti-asian hate by quote embracing and showing our Americanise in ways. We never have before. And then he went on to praise japanese-americans who volunteered for military service from were to concentration camps to quote demonstrate that they were Americans unquote all the time conveniently ignoring that. They felt the pressure to do this because of injustice in anti Japanese racism that was occurring at the time. When I read this I thought Oh Andrew I I can't defend you now. This is just such a misunderstanding of misread. What was really happening in? History I served as a pastor at historically japanese-american Church for forty years where most of the Japanese Americans there had gone into those been put into those prison camps and yes some had even gone onto volunteer from those camps to serve in the four forty second. And what have you? But it was not lost on me. After putting in that time with that community to understand the whole pressure to prove their patriot. Patriotism grew out of this injustice that they had to prove their Americanise and so for Yang to hold this a up as an example to be emulated. I think hugely problematic. There are other people from that era japanese-americans who sounded like Yang like Mike Matsuoka with the Japanese American Citizens League and he was basically before the executive order. Ninety six six. You know saying very loud and clear publicly that Japanese Americans need to step up and stand up and and show that you know. They're not loyal to Japan. And what have you and there are many Japanese American leaders who joined muscle okay in that chorus and yet executive order. No six six still happened all the West Coast Japanese one hundred twenty thousand gut thrown into those prison camps. I mean it was hugely problematic. Then and was divisive amongst Japanese American community. And I just think gang what. He said what he wrote there. I just can't defend that so I think it's significant because as I said I was an early supporter of his. I donated to his campaign. One of my nieces I happen to go to his rallies in the northeast before he dropped out maybe a couple of months before and She went up to shake his hand afterwards. And said You are? My uncle's pint. Cast and he said Oh Kent Kim's a great guy so hey he thinks I'm a great guy. I have another reason to continue to defend them but knowing what I know I just can't. This is completely off. We as Americans do not need to prove that we're good Americans. There was a wonderful article written by Nina Wallace. Who I'm hoping is going to be my guess pretty soon on the PODCASTS. The show dot organization. Who really spelled it out then show is all about capturing oral histories of Japanese Americans who were in the camps before they pass away and let me just read how she ends her piece. She says Yang is severely mistaken. If he thinks the lesson we lesson we should take away from our history. Is that Asian? Americans can or should escape racism by appealing to racists. Japanese-americans tried to prove their loyalty to this country during World War Two through military service through quite endurance and in some cases through the vilification of those who chose to exert Americanise in acts of civil disobedience. These demonstrations did not prevent the uprooting of our community the years of incarceration without trial or the onslaught of rhetorical and physical hate directed at Asian bodies. Should we as Yang says in his? Op Ed step up and help our neighbors and do everything in our power to accelerate the end of this crisis unquote. Absolutely many Asian. Americans are already creating community support networks to supply our elders with groceries and ensure that Chinatown and knee. Honmachi businesses stay afloat but flag-waving allegiance should not be a prerequisite for ending anti Asian violence putting on a model minority show of hyper patriotism. An unrequited loyalty will not protect us. What will protect us is solidarity with black folks creating pathways to liberation through both white supremacy and anti blackness from other people of color with indigenous peoples fighting to protect and nurture the land in which we stand with survivors who are already intimately familiar with the consequences of victim blaming an actively engaged in building a world will we need not quote prove unquote are worth and with asian-americans striving for truth justice not proximity to whiteness. Now's not the time to call the dissenters and resistors from our communities. Now is not the time to retreat to the center and erase those who live on the margins. Rather than appealing to notions of loyalty and quote Americanise Unquote that demand. We sacrifice our cultural and political identities price of admission. Let us instead build our own power and mutual support. We are enough and we have nothing to prove again. That was by Nina Wallace. Who is part of the staff at didn't show DOT ORG and I'm waiting to hear back from them early this week whether she's going to be able to come on and Unpacked at some more. But I just want to give her shadow. Thank you for expressing cataloging. The the history of what happened to Japanese Americans after the attack on Pearl Harbor and how that was just wrong been and is wrong to encourage any of us. Any Americans especially Americans have colored to go out of our way to wear red white and blue as input to prove that we are in fact. Not The enemy right. I just. I can't defend that. And I'm thinking if the email address that we were communicating with a back in two thousand eighteen is still good. I don't know if it is or not I'm thinking have writing him a note and Attaching Nina's column to it because he's he's an intelligent person. I I do believe he cares. And you know on the one. And he's not a candidate anymore So you know. He doesn't have to sound like a candidate. Maybe this is how he actually really thinks and that was on display. When he was a candidate. You can also argue that. He's hoping to be a candidate for other offices going forward or maybe part of a democratic presidents administration..
