This Is Why the Church Needs To Get Political
"The one thousand nine hundred nineteen sixties early seventies. We saw different form of christianity. Come in america. Talk about that so So chuck smith came on the scene especially for catholic chapel sixty eight and the idea of evangelism and they. They brought in syncopated rhythms. Which probably disappointed you in lives but Autho music and what they didn't california. Interestingly enough is chuck taught the bible verse by verse chapter chapter book by book but he stayed away from politics because in sixty eight when he started it Martin luther king reverend dr martin luther king junior have been shot. Bobby kennedy had been shot. Sixty three jake kidman shot. Then you had the meantime askar the offensive. And all these young people who had been seeking hope and change had checked out of the church and explored eastern religions and drug use and they they came back disillusioned because all their political heroes were dead and chuck avoided politics but he taught he taught the the way to salvation and grew ten thousand percent in fifty. Two years trae There's more coverage apples southbound doughnuts. There's a lot of dunkin's yeah there's a lot of dunkin donuts and and so so. The lion share those churches are in california. Ten thousand percent growth harvest crusades greg. Laurie but but in sixty eight we had the fifth largest gdp and it was a state of the future a trait but he avoids politics because the kids are burned out on it. I am grateful to chuck for my verse by verse. You know systematic study of the scriptures. I do not resent that. I i am who i am because he did what he did. But we miss something. Because we didn't engage in the public square the matthew sixteen we avoided that and now california no longer has a fifth largest gdp. We have the six maybe seven. We have a highest gas sales tax income tax highest debt highest unemployment highest poverty highest homelessness. And we've aborted more children than any other state in the union authors. No fault divorce. The transgender bathroom bills. And that's because the church didn't engage in the public

MLK's Right-Hand Man Wyatt Tee Walker Rejects Critical Race Theory
"Again. I pull out my book, American Marxism. There were in our prominent critics of critical race theory who were active in the early civil rights movement, including the late Reverend Martin Luther King, Junior's chief of staff, confidant and friend. Dr Wyatt T. Walker. Walker was a legend in the civil rights movement in his own right, his friend and frequent collaborator in the school choice movement, Steve Kalinsky. Rights that Walker was King's field general in the organized resistance. Against notorious Birmingham Safety Commissioner Bulk counter. Now keep something in mind. Martin Luther King, and that entire movement. Was not anti American was not trying to overthrow a white dominant society. It was a movement demanding then under the Constitution of the United States. That black people be treated like human beings. It was not a war on society. It was not a Marxist movement. Now, Walker Compiled and named Kings the letter from Birmingham Jail He was with King for the march on Washington. That produced the I have a dream speech and in Oslo for the Nobel Peace Prize.

What Happens After Death
"Number one out the gate. What happens when a person dies. This question is definitely without an answer. Actually nobody really could save for sure. I think that our body turns to dust. But i'm not sold on anything else not buying a okay like that. Dr martin luther king junior won said every man must do two things alone. He must do his own believing his own dying. So essentially how. I interpret that phrase and all of our links and resources will be linked in the episode at woken dot com. And make sure you check that out. I would say. I agree with you in that there is a lot of uncertainty and unknowns when it comes through the process of death but we do know is. It is an actual change in circumstance. Where the people that you knew the people that loved you the people that use. Oc with no longer can interact with you in this human form because your body is no longer functioning. So it's a change in circumstance. It's loss offer those that you leave behind and comes to you. Yes i agree. It's a question. Mark question to the death equal peace not necessarily so according to the university of iowa st family children's hospital again they break it down really very. Interestingly which is why. I wanted to share it. They say you know death happens when the body stops working the heart sub speeding the brain doesn't get or send any messages to the body sight hearing taste touch smell. Don't work anymore and then you know when someone is dead. Their thoughts doesn't have their body doesn't have any thoughts feelings anymore. So when a person dies their bodies can't move or play anymore and after death the body will never be able to do these things again. So does that to that kind of breakdown in the processing sound like peace not to me. Sounds like a finality of this form of existence. But i think the to argue that death equals ultimate piece. Is i think our mandic notion. I think it's something that we see in media but it is not scientifically proven and theoretically is possible sore but it that's gonna be person's specific beliefs specific

Women Share Why They Fight For Reproductive Justice
"Welcome back to ordinary equality. I'm jimmy wilson a writer editor and feminist activist. And i'm kate. Kelly human rights attorney and feminist activist. Today we're talking about an issue that has been undercurrent of a lot of what we've covered so far reproductive justice it's a framework created by black women to center our needs in the midst of a movement that has ignored us for far too long. This episode we're going to discuss some of the reproductive injustice. That continued post emancipation. And how it spurred the founding of a movement bill to address the inequity and the mistrust caused by centuries of reproductive oppression at the end of the episode will learn white folks myself included can do to better center marginalized and underrepresented voices in this conversation. And what organizations are doing on the ground to ensure reproductive justice the slave breeding industry we discussed in episode three left a painful and persistent legacy in this country. Professor jennifer morgan talked about how the historic commodification of black bodies set the stage for ongoing mistreatment of folks embedding generational trauma that persists today that shamas sits beneath much more recent oppression of reproductive rights throughout most of the twentieth century. Eugenics campaigns flourished in the united states quickly becoming the dominant scientific view. The goal was to exterminate all so-called undesirable qualities in society through often-forced selective breeding and sterilization mental illnesses criminal records unwanted racial traits low intelligence levels and even poverty were considered undesirable indicators leading scientists. Believed that all these traits could and should be selectively bred out of the human population by any means necessary as we now know all of these ideas have since been proven to be as false as they are immoral. Time and time again. In the heyday of eugenics thirty-three states allowed involuntary sterilization on groups lawmakers claimed were unfit have children in california mental institutions. Alone about twenty thousand for sterilizations between nineteen o nine and nineteen seventy-nine unsurprisingly. People of color in immigrants were far more likely to be selected as an undesirable group worthy for sterilization mainstream. Scientists pushed these views. As fact margaret sanger the founder of planned. Parenthood got involved in the eugenics movement as she tried to promote reproductive rights. On october sixteenth. Nine hundred sixteen sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the united states. In order to push the idea of birth control rights forward. She consorted with leaders in the ever growing eugenics movement. She even personally advocated for selective breeding herself in one thousand nine hundred ninety one article. She wrote quote. The most urgent problem. Today is how to limit and discourage the over fertility of the mentally and physically defective as damning as that is. There's more to the story. Here's loretta ross. A professor at smith college and former national coordinator of sister song women of color reproductive justice collective on sanger's legacy her involvement in movement. But i also contextualized wbz devos was vaulted with the jenex movement. And so because it was a popular pseudoscience at that time a lot of people were involved in it. And so to single out margaret sanger as the demon is trying to eliminate the black race is just bad historical research because in fact. She was far ahead of her time. Even i called in a sectional list one day because in nineteen teams retired nineteen sixteen. She about poverty. She wrote about racism she wrote about all the inner sexual issues. We're talking about now. One hundred years later she was so ahead of her time and so she was an accident. Early intersection analyst. Who made some mistakes. But then everybody i know. Who's a human being makes. Mistakes if i wanted to do an analysis of everything dr martin luther king junior it wrong. It's an attention. But maybe they demonize him as they do margaret sanger. Many anti-choice advocates claim. That singer sought to eliminate black people from america altogether. That couldn't be less true. She focused the spread of birth control on poor communities many of which were largely populated with people of color. But it's because they were more likely to be susceptible to unwanted pregnancies and she wrote in one thousand nine fourteen enforced. Motherhood is the most complete denial of women's right to life and liberty. It's definitely disturbing to read about many of sanger's eugenic spaced beliefs. Today though she later repudiated everything. About the idea of selective breeding we still have to contend with the damage her involvement in the movement when a well known figure participates in such a harmful ideology it may provide others the justification to do the same. Her language may also have sowed increased wariness and communities of color after atrocities committed by nazi germany on earth. The terror born from the disgusting ideology of eugenics the vocal public support for the movement fizzled and most sleep died in the united states. But for sterilization continued behind the scenes for decades and still takes place today as we'll discuss later in the

When hundreds of people marched for voting rights in selma alabama. Some of them were brutally beaten by state troopers. As they crossed the edmund pettus bridge becoming a symbol of racism across the deep south that later led martin luther king junior to march from selma to the state capital in montgomery and eventually led congress to pass the voting rights act of nineteen sixty
Interview With Roy Kinsey, The Rapbrarian
"Tell me if this is true. Your parents met in a way that kind of foreshadowed your future in a little bit like they didn't mean a bar that didn't mean party is actually true that they met at a library. Of course it's a. I've had my own moments with that story. But it's the absolute truth. My mother was going to interview at. What was the large libraries in sta cultural center and my father was working at a desk. Saugus he Slip some gaming but yet that's that's where they met and then my mother was working actually on the the floor where the music was where all the film were. The vinyls that was this is not harold washington library This is before perr washes number and They met their first date was purple. Rain of the movie yet differs date was to go see preparation. The movie that is not suspicious. I eight yeah yeah. My dad loved france and it was really interesting. Because when i was putting out kinsey a memoir that is very reminiscent to me in a lot of ways of the story of purple rain Imprint the first place that i was asked to come pretty much to drop. The album actually was to first avenue for sold out show. And that's where my father lives now. My father has lived in minnesota for longer than twenty years. Twenty five thirty years probably which is why. This album is a purple winds wire at the vinyl herbal. But it was the first show that i was asked to come in do at prince's club where my father would walk at c be reforming in his hometown. Right before the shutdown so was the first and last show that i got to perform before we before the pandemic times matt. What what was it like for you. It was magical. It was so so amazing. I felt like it's called me. They're a felt like prince called me. You know called me to be there not knowing that things would shut down in a couple of weeks after that. But i think that it's sustained me in a way. I really miss performing and to be sold out show. I was called by desa so Of doom tree who lives in minnesota's a artist and author our own. Right of course asked me to come an open for her. So i do the sold out show and it was just one of the most magical experiences that i've had as far The reception was so so incredible and You know the people of minnesota really made me feel like a star that day in so it was just a lot of moments that were more magical more synchronised than even you know just the forty minutes i was on stage. It was just a whole magical experience that it's sort of like everything was leading up to that moment. Have you talked to your dad about that. His show yeah. It was so funny. My dad is very mysterious guy so when he came i didn't see him. He called me till we. It was a great show. And all that but i think just the way my mind works in the art. That was moving through in the art. That i was making and where i was in that space. I can't lie that i was like. I don't even know if he came. I don't even know if he was even actually here and van but me and my dad had this really interesting connection. I mean you have that connection with your parents. You have the connection with people that brought you into the world doesn't have to be so literal or on the phone or shortly proof or whatever life. I have that tie with my parents. My parents no when. I'm going through something whether i talked to them or not. Like they'll feel it from across town or prostate or cross country in so Randomly two or three weeks later. He sends me a video of me like on my last song. You know rocking the stage of okay. Right he was legit there. that's awesome. yeah. I mean as bad i think You know amazon. There's that connection. There's that sort of thing which. I'm fairly practical person. But there's also certain things like that that i just believe in you just feel something doesn't matter where you are I know you're also really close with grandma coming up as well right. Oh yeah my best details. Tell me more better ellen thompson. She was born in nineteen forty three in mississippi. And i love to speak her name. She was one of the first people that clap from me in made a really big deal out of me knowing how to read on my seventh birthday. She made me de. Protagonist of this book was a story of dr martin luther king junior. It should be around here somewhere. But it's right there so in this in this book that my grandmother gave me my tribute to martin luther king. Junior i am the protagonists of this book. And i'm writing a paper on martin luther king junior at tell the story of his life. But i'm you know in the beginning saying oh telling my cousins rookie creek turtle i have to write this paper on martin luther king junior Go into the story by the end of the story. I've told this whole thing. I turned it in. I get a on the paper. That is the book right. So not only. Did my grandmother clap for me. When she sees me reading. And saying that. I you know had a love. For words you should go to market a garden classes with me and sit in a walk me home and then when i began talking she would call me radio or lawnmower. She said because. I've talked so much if you call me that. And that was a foreshadowing in itself. Right i mean of me getting a on the paper. Maybe the paper was the black album. Right me. Being able to use my words for the upliftment of myself in marginalized communities in it was really just kind of like thinking about this is a power device and words in education literature a are powered by
Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground
"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the
Ibram X. Kendi And Keisha N. Blain On The 400-year story Of Black people In America
"Professor planes. You've got the top box. I'm going to start with you. This is a different kind of history book right. It's a history book where some of the ninety writers aren't even historians collectively who are the writers. And why are their voices so important so we asked an array of writers to contribute to the volume. And as you point out so many of them are not professional Journalists to contribute we asked philosophers to contribute We asked creative writers to contribute as well as poets end. What we wanted to do was really grapple with four hundred years of history. And not you know. We really didn't want it to feel like a typical a history book. I and of course asking ninety historians Would have i think a taken away from the the sort of you know tone that we were trying to set which was bringing together a diverse community which met people coming to the history writing about the history from their own experiences but also from their unique trainings whether in the field of journalism are in the field of law and so it was important for us to create something new something special something original and that meant bringing in writers from a wide array of backgrounds. Professor professor blaine just talked about the fact that you have poets in the book and you write quote sometimes. History is best captured by poets out. Some more there's anything. I've learned in my time writing history. That is that it's deeply complex. Variegated story that in many ways. We have to imagine things that we don't have a speculate on on on decisions that we don't have a specific for that we have to stretch archive especially when writing on on people's particularly working class. Americans certainly working cost black folks who haven't left an archive who haven't left on speeches and and necessarily written records and so you know. Poets have the capacity to really show the depth and complexity and the imagination and creativity of humanity. And and so when we when that comes to bear on history. And i think they were really able at the end of each section to really flush out and contextualized. You know forty years. When i was in school. Professor blaine We're going way back like the nineteen seventies nineteen eighties black history The way we're talking about today just wasn't taught. Slavery was a chapter and not exactly told honestly the accomplishments of black americans were diminished if they were even acknowledged so has anything changed since the seventies in the eighty s. What needs to change. So i think some things have changed You know when you look at how history textbooks written. We're certainly at a place where the textbooks that are produced today or even in the last ten years i think are better than the ones that were a public. Maybe twenty years ago does not mean that we still don't have work to do. In fact we have a lot of work to do. Especially i think in the last two or three years. We've been talking about textbooks in places states like texas for example where they're still a debate about how you talk about the civil war and how you talk about slavery and like you. I certainly encounter textbooks. That didn't really flesh out are the nuances. You know an even the trauma of of the the experience of slavery in often times a glossed over eight or or perhaps had a little box to focus on martin luther king junior but other than that not really center a historical figures i and so a lot has changed in part of that. Change is directly tied. I think to the work of a professional historians. We've been working very hard odd to excavate the history in in in order to help people better write about the history. I in a way that reflects the richness than the complexity and diversity of the black experience but particularly in a way that centers black agency which is key that black voices appear. That black ideas appear in. These textbooks are still some work to do. But i think we're making progress. I think four hundred souls is certainly the kind of texts that would help us move forward in that direction.
How the San Francisco Comunity Music Center is thriving in the pandemic
"Of our counters died from complications due to hiv and aids. I'm the remaining survivor. There are many who supported a stirring that time but having navigated losing dancers choreographers audience members weekly similar to what we're seeing now and yet the differences so many people were unaware and didn't care you can tell. The pain still sits with me the trauma and i think that we are in that now. We will be in that period of time. I would say decades of time where we will be sitting with. What wasn't done. What was left unsaid. What was not attempted for the safety of people over profit. This is the co founder and executive director of dancers group wayne hazard. The dancer group was born in the middle of the aids crisis and has over the decades into a service organization providing wrap around fiscal sponsorship programs and services to incubate and support artists and the dance community as well as their historical roots at presenting unique grassroots base. Dance to the san francisco bay area. I'm joined remotely via zoom by wayne hazard the executive director of dancers group. Thanks for being here win. Thanks george it's my pleasure on martin luther king junior day twenty twenty one yes quite a solemn day and quite a powerful day so segue to our first question. Which is i think. The audience probably doesn't know dance group which is an interesting can of service group model. So if you could give us a little background on the dancers group and some of the really unique the of eighteen programs while it's my favorite topic obviously vance's group has been around since nineteen eighty two and we were founded in san francisco's mission district. We really started out. As a collective of choreographers of dance makers looking to have support space and camaraderie and ways to be in relationship to one. Another and really. That hasn't changed thirty nine years later. I like to call us now. Hybrid organization. Because i think it kind of clicks with people one and two. It's kind of what we do in terms of providing direct services to dance makers dancers those interested in dance and we also present dance at timmy's and i say that in that way because we do commissioning of work but we also have large programs of the your leg bay area dance week where pretty The pandemic we had twenty two thousand people in the spring. Take free dance. Classes all over the bay area from hip hop to who led to back to tap to beginning movement classes. Were children to adults. Dance for people with parkinson's you name it. We probably haven't morale-booster over the years so the services we do really are about you know supporting people where they are classes. Discounts performance information discounts on those and. Then we provide direct services to dance makers through our fiscal sponsorship program. We have over one hundred and twenty five dance companies dance projects that fundraise under us so each year close to one point. Five million raised less than we redistribute through expenses back to those entities where over generally pandemic times of three hundred thousand people attend those company and artists activities classes and performances though this last going on ten months with covid nineteen and so much of obviously performing arts and dance especially is a personal experience. How has the dance group dealt with the covid nineteen and economic meltdown. And then how do you feel like. It's impacted all of the dozens of dance. Performance groups that you incubate and work with big question. I'll start by saying that. Dancers groups founders along with myself win through the aids pandemic in the early eighties. All the way into the nineties and still continuing today as a worldwide pandemic beget really not seeing that way. Because of i think broadly and it's changed a bit but seeing as a gay male disease. Two of our founders died from complications hiv and aids. I'm the remaining survivor. There are many who supported a stirring that time but having navigated losing dancers choreographers audience members weekly similar to what we're seeing now and yet the differences so many people were unaware and didn't care you can tell. The pain still sits with me the trauma and i think that we are in that now. We will be in that period of time. I would say decades of time where we will be sitting with what was done what was left unsaid. What was not attempted for the safety of people over prophet so specifically to your question. I think one of the first things we did as an organization is aboard said. Are you okay and we. We talked a lot. We said to staff your job is there. We like many organizations applied for support both private foundations and others to help us navigate this time. We are very fortunate in the bay area to have major foundations. Like the hewlett some rain ins and haase's and fly checkers Really step forward and then we just looked at getting information out early on also. Many organizations were creating cove relief funds and the area had going. i and i was approached by a donor. Saying here's a large took money. Let's get this out to dancers. And i said well what if we join forces with theatre bay area would if we not created just one more fun but just was able to get more money to one fund and so the funder liked that the donor like that theatre bay area. Love that inter music. Sf joined as well and so there's a performing arts workers relief fund on theatre bay area dot org site it's also on dancers
A Safety Net for America
"There's a popular martin. Luther king junior quote that lays bare the false promise of the american dream. He said it's all right to tell a man to lift himself up by his bootstraps. But it is cruel just to say to a bootlace man the oughta lift himself up by his own bootstraps now because it was martin luther king junior's birthday recently because we the people seem to have finally elected policymakers who care that are growing inequality is quite literally killing. Many of us thought it prudent to talk about safety nets for boot lewis americans. A safety net traditionally provides a margin of protection against the fluctuations of everyday life the highs and lows it allows for room for error. It helps you endure and designed purposely. It lets you succeed. Safety nets come in a variety of literal and figurative flavors artist. We're talking about actual rope. You can fly higher knowing you won't die if you slip. If you're an investor. A percentage of capital that remains fluid in cash or bonds. So you can make other bets on crazy biotech companies. Or i guess game stop is what we're doing this week if you're doomsday prepar. Who's pretty convinced. It's the end times but safety net might be an underground bunker in your backyard packed with ken. Paris and dynamite. They'll safety nets are complicated. Systemic concept but the first principles are easy to understand if millions of americans are hungry without water without health insurance and healthcare without childcare without wages. Whatever we're doing is working and because we live in a interconnected society not a spaceship made for one. The unequal distribution of safety nets actually affects everyone as america continues along in a quote unquote k shaped recovery or enormous wealth gap continues to grow. Thus many americans haven't had to think about a proper. Can i buy food this week. Safety net for some time now while others are further away from one than ever before white people are for the most part born with a safety net. The color of their skin. This simple unearned. Genetic inheritance provides a set of boots enabling most white people to simultaneously feel protected from sudden life changes and to take risks and embrace opportunities all relative but why people like me and stuff away a bunch of cash and then take advantage of opportunities like nonexistent interest rates and skyrocketing market values to remortgage houses and by tesla or bitcoin because the goal is growth through compounding interest. Not figuring out how to pick up free school lunches during your twelve hour onsite during a pandemic in a world that is more volatile than ever with list of externalities that includes invisible novel viruses in your living room and workplace and actual oceans. Making their way into your kitchen. It's more important than ever that we think through what it means for everyone to have a safety net as morgan hausa. We'll tell you a functionable. Reliable margin of safety means not having to sell your stocks and interrupt compounding interest when shit hits the fan and compound interest is incredible. It's everywhere for example. The ice age didn't happen because it suddenly got super cold outside. It happened because the summers were gradually and consistently more tepid. And the ice just eventually didn't melt but compound interest goes both ways. I mean look at the climate crisis or the continued state of black housing landownership food. College debt and education positive compound interest means not having to choose between food and rent. You don't even have to think about that when you don't have to worry about and food you can do so much more. It means building an infrastructure and culture of wellness and prevention. Not just going to the emergency room with no idea why your chest hurts because and this is vital to understand. It's not usually the suddenly sick person paying that bill. Ambulance rides and emergency room. Visits that are unable to be paid for by. The patient are often paid for by the hospital with something called charity. Care and that's subsidized by state grants basically your tax dollars of course sixty percent of the time. That sick person isn't white and this is the system. We've designed person doesn't have a safety net. A safety net means paying wages that allow for less congested three generation living conditions that viruses can't thrive in that allow for healthy plant based foods and building a strong microbiome that allow for not living next to fucking fossil fuel facilities and uncapped wells. So kids can grow and learn and breathe and you'd be amazed at what kids can do when they can grow and learn and breathe. I means paid sick. Leave for the days. You just can't do it whether you're suffering physically or mentally so you can do your best work on the other days. A safety net is paid parental leave for welcoming child into your family. It's childcare once you go back to work in preschool. After that for your mental health for your performance at work for your child's future it means giving every american child a few thousand bucks every year starting at birth to be spent indoor invested however. The parents see fit for food now and for turning on that fiscal compound interest for the rest of their lives. We can do better. We can make sure people land on their feet and that the entire society benefits society that decides that safety net's of every kind should be universal. We'll find her citizens able to reach further and faster and will suffer for less when faced with a pandemic. your challenge is to consider the safety nets available to you today and to manifest ways. You can extend those to your business in your community to lift all boats a bunch of guys longtime ago said the life liberty and the pursuit of happiness are unalienable. But i'll tell you this. Hungry person has no liberty no freedom no safety net to millions of americans have no liberty to speak of martin. Luther king talked about that in washington to paraphrase here. He said ever since the founding fathers of our nation dreamed this dream. America has been something of a schizophrenic personality on the one hand we have proudly professed the noble principles of democracy life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But on the other hand. We have sadly practiced the very antithesis of those principles. Now more than ever before. America is challenged to realize it's noble dream for the sheep of the world. Today does not permit us the luxury of an anemic democracy. Our hours late and the clock of destiny is ticking out. We can't expect people to solve existential crises like climate change and they can keep their water turned on. So i asked today look to your own safety nets and find ways to extend them to your neighbors
Amanda Gorman's books jump to bestsellers after inaugural poem
"The dawn is hours before we knew it. Somehow we do it. Somehow we've weathered in witnessed a nation that isn't broken but simply unfinished we the successors of a country and the time were a skinny black girl. Descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one that was amanda gorman the inaugural youth poet lawyer it reading from her poem. At the hill we climb which she read at joe biden's inauguration alexandra alter profiled gorman and interviewed her joining us now to talk a little bit more about that hey alexandra hey pamela so this was a really exciting week in washington but i most loved about the news events. This week was that a poet was the breakout star of the inauguration ceremony on wednesday. Amanda gorman was the youngest inaugural poet and us history. She joins a very elite class of poets. Only been a handful of poets who have performed it including robert frost my ngelo elizabeth richard blanco. So she really brought a lot to this performance. And when i spoke to her what was really interesting to me was. She felt enormous pressure. Not just because of the size of the audience she was going to be addressing. Tens of millions of people potentially watching the events at home but because of the state of the country she felt real responsibility to present a poem that reflected joe biden's inaugural theme of america united and. She said they didn't give her any specific guidelines but they said that's the three million inauguration but she also really wanted to address. What has happened recently in the country. Particularly the partisan divisions that we've seen the political violence the effects of the pandemic. It's a really dark moment. And so she was kind of trying to counter johnston to forces the potential for unity. But also these deep divisions that we're seeing in the country now so interestingly. She was really struggling with the poem. The inaugural committee reached out to her late december. She had a few weeks to work on it and was kind of she said it's like it felt like climbing a mountain would do a few versus a day and then on january six. We all watched across the country as the unfolded at the capital. There was the insurrection. There and rioters stormed the capital. And amanda gorman at that point had written about half of her poem and she stayed up late into the night and finished it because she just felt this urgency. And so you're there are verses in the poem that reflect what we saw that day the other thing that she said that was interesting about how she prepared to write it was. She said she always starts with historical research so she studied speeches from leaders who really brought their countries together. In times of crisis she looked at speeches by winston. Churchill abraham lincoln martin luther king junior and she listened to music that inspired her including the musical hamilton. There are a couple of hamilton references within the poem. That some people caught including lin-manuel miranda who was very appreciative of her poetry. So it's been incredible to see their response to her work after she gave this really kind of inspiring performance her books. She has two books coming out this year. Actually three because they're releasing the poem she wrote as a standalone and she has now the number one and number two books on amazon and this is a poet who is twenty two years old and she's preparing to publish her debut collection. This fall so she's gone incredibly quickly from somebody who had following and was pretty well known in the poetry world to kind of national literary star and one other thing that i loved about her performance and her approach to it which she talked about how she felt like she was representing not just her own words but representing poetry itself representing american poetry and y you know it was important to have poetry part of the ceremony. She said when. I spoke to her now more than ever. The united states needs an inaugural poem. Poetry is typically the touchstone that we go back to when we have to remind ourselves of the history that we stand on the future that we stand for so i thought it was lovely that she felt that she was standing up in front of the capital. Two weeks after the insurrection took place kind of representing poetry as a form that can unite the country.
Inaugural poet Amanda Gorman: 'Even as we grieved, we grew.'
"Twenty two year old Amanda Gorman became the youngest poet to speak at a presidential inauguration the title of Gorman's poem the hill we climb she referenced the violence at the capitol we've seen a force that would shatter a nation rather than share it would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy Gorman had said she wanted to combine a message of hope for the Biden presidency without ignoring the evidence of discord and division even as we grieve we grew that even as we hurt we hopes that even as we tired we tried that will forever be tied together victorious Gorman echo the words of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther king junior and referenced everything from biblical scripture to Hamilton well we have our eyes on the future history has its eyes on us said Donahue Washington

When the FBI Spied on Martin Luther King Jr.
"A new documentary out today called. Mlk fbi which traces the ways in which the fbi was surveilling. Martin luther king junior towards the end of his life as well as other black activists in an attempt to tamp down the civil rights movements directed by legendary filmmaker sam pollard. This documentary is based on a nineteen eighty one book by historian david garrow as well as documents released by the national archives in two thousand seventeen and two thousand eighteen quoting the atlantic. Mlk fbi arrows attempts to stifle the civil rights movement through coordinated efforts to spy on king with the hope of discrediting his righteous public image with king as with many black activists since the beginning of the twentieth century. The fbi surveillance wasn't an isolated obsession. It was part of a long running effort to keep black americans from acquiring institutional power. Pohlad told me the film traces. Exactly how the surveillance of king started how it was conducted and the effects it had on his life end quote using tons of archival footage and interviews with firsthand witnesses. The film illustrates how. Fbi's surveillance of black americans began as part of fbi director. Jaeger hoover's obsession with rooting out. Communism believing black people to be more susceptible to political manipulation as their efforts became more focused specifically on martin luther king junior and his growing influence. The fbi sought to expose his extramarital affairs as a way of discrediting him to the public and his followers but director sample are noted to npr's fresh air quote would hoover didn't bank on was back in the sixties. The press did not take the bait. They didn't reveal the personal lives of these public figures. They didn't do with john kennedy. They didn't do with others and they didn't do it. With dr king and quotes and while this documentary serves as a needed reminder. That martin luther king junior was not universally revered in his time there could be wearing that paints too negative a picture of him by including personal details like the affairs he had producer. Benjamin heddon said a our approach however quote he wouldn't be d- mythology someone he would simply be portraying him with responsibility and sympathy the way he would subject in his documentaries who was not known to the wider public and quotes and hannah georgia's said in the atlantic quote. Mlk fbi offers an important corrective to prevailing myths about king and his principles of nonviolent resistance. Which were not in fact. Widely embraced as my colleague. Van newkirk wrote in two thousand eighteen hostility toward the civil rights. Movement turned into a cherry. Pick celebration of the revolutions victories over segregation in over easily caricatured gap toothed bigots in the south and quotes and continuing georgia's. The reality was that opposition to king into the racial progress. He symbolized was restricted by region or by political affiliation diplomats and republicans alike had turned against king by his later years especially after he voiced objection to the vietnam war. It's impossible to separate the fbi's decades long commitment to tracking black activists from its relative failure to address the credible threats posed by white nationalists including those that surfaced with last week's deadly attack on the capital the fbi surveilling king and using dubious reasoning to do so isn't altogether shocking for much of the country's history sabotaging black rebellion by any means necessary has been integral to preserving white political power. The new and still contested development is finally accepting black people as active participants in american democracy and quotes.

But they'll meet him, the sooner you get tired or the end of your rope concerning the crimes of these people friends, the sooner they're going gonna understand that they're not gonna play games with we the people. I mean, I bet a lot of these foreign people speaking foreigners that are coming in and being used to implement a global government with the help of Donald Trump. It's interesting to note. I bet a lot of these people are coming into the United States of America trying to figure out where we're the those people are. And we're the spirit, and who is to exhibit these colors don't run. I bet they're trying to figure out what a second. Is this a thing of the past? Or is this still going on today are they're still brave people in the United States of America that don't run but stand? You know, I don't know about you America. But when. Like so many times over the past years. When you're born of the spirit of God. Because that's what we follow. Isn't it? Interesting. How we went into the synagogues. He went into the temples. He went into where the people were at. He went in to set the record straight. You went in and broke it down and delivered out devils. He went in and turned over tables and took chords in whips. Second set the record straight because he had the zeal of his father well, soda Christians today. We may see the enemy at work. They don't see something they need to run from. They see something that they need to run to to set the record straight. Where is that spirit America? Where is it because you see your foreign enemies within and without attacking at well with the help of your own people that are committing the act of treason against you. They are aiding and abetting the enemy in the United States of America. Every step of the way every step of the way. I was just watching a come back to this. But I just wanted to let you know. I was watching a documentary earlier from the attorney from Martin Luther King junior. And he went through all the details that weren't released to the American people during the sixties. That weren't released to the American people in the seventies that weren't released to the people in the eighties or the nineties or the two thousands. He said that every step of the way the media was there as they remained silent concerning what really happened around the killing the conspiracy. Concerning federal governments the mob the military industrial complex who were all threatened because Martin had the power to turn tides against them. As a matter of fact, friends, I wanna tell you something the best thing the hippie ever, the hippies ever did back in the sixties was protest government for the Vietnam war. Best thing they ever did Martin Luther King was right? But what's interesting about it is the? Attorney for the family. By the way, James Earl Ray was never never. Charged for the murder. Lawfully? He never confessed to the murder, nor was he responsible for the murder. We got a brand new video as a matter of fact, I don't know why I'm getting off on that. But I will highlight it even now when you go to the sons of Liberty Media dot com. Watch the video. It's absolutely. Telling it goes to everything what the narrative was that was set by the media. And the facts of the case how they're set right in the face of eyewitnesses. And of course, this is what they do. They did it with Robert Kennedy's assassination. They did it with John F Kennedy's assassination. It's interesting to friends one of the things that was brought up just to show you how the media works and how big governments involved in everything. But it's interesting to note that even during the releasing Donald Trump I came into office. They were talking much about the release of John F Kennedy's assassination files. Well, I don't know if you know this or not, but when Donald Trump got in there, he agreed to redecked the names of those that are still alive concerning that assassination while now that he's dead and burning in hell where he belongs. George Bush senior his name was brought up of course, he was a part of the assassination. Look he was looking at the power influence. He had. Folks, you just go on and the way you get it from the CIA controlled media frenzy can almost bet what they're telling us the opposite of the truth. And I've seen it a thousand times, but Donald Trump was right there to help cover it up, by the way friends was came as no surprise to me whatsoever. But just in case you ever think that he's one of your guys I'm telling you he is not he is not one of your guys, and how people are taking with this guy. The only way that they can do that France is the shut their eyes to the fruit that he bears because the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree the fruit is there for you to see and we spent much time on that just yesterday. What I did want to cover though. Friends is shock interview veteran FBI demonstrates FBI shouldn't exist. Unconstitutional. So's the how many bureaucracies have been created friends in the United States of America that have no constitutional standing a lawful. Standing in any sense of the word. And what are they being used for wall? Let me ask you the question. What have they been used for? Well, we've been taught that they're there to again, protect the little guys from the big guys. No, it's just the exact opposite friends just the exact opposite. They're protecting the big guys from the little guys. And for all of you guys. I want to remind you it does not matter. How big the dog is in the fight. It matters. How big the fight in the dog? And if you think you can't make a difference. I want to tell you something friends that is the furthest thing from the truth. Have you ever been in a tent? Like out in the forest somewhere. And there was one mosquito inside of that tense, and you were trying to go to sleep workout. Didn't work out. And so you got rid of that mosquito right sale affective, you are American. Just imagine. What happens when people come together and shut it down together. Because a one man with God is always in the majority said, the prophet, John Knox. But again, if you want to check it out sons of Liberty Media shock interview veteran FBI demonstrates, why FBI shouldn't exist. Also read Jeremiah eleven nine when you get a moment. I want to go back to this really quick Islamic groups media, call for Florida. Commissioners head for responding to tear tied rep to leads impeach the effort concerning the president of the United States of America. Again, if this was anybody else friends doing this too? Brocker Saint Obama. It would have been national news. No question about it. But it's interesting how the Muslims are being empowered by the media to go after anybody that dare speak out against those that intend to commit crimes. Against the innocent. Listen to this. We have over two hundred and fifty six thousand five hundred forty signatures to have Jihadist to leave Russia to leave removed. From office for that threat against the president of the United States of America. How much have you heard of it? Why is the media empowering your enemies, France again, without the facts that friends that we are in a time of judgment in this country. We are under the judgments of God. There's no denying it. No more. You can deny the light the sun gives off you just not going to be able to do it. But why why is it that? There's no there's no national outrage concerning what? Mrs Rashida, leave said well there is but who's pouring water on it through silence. The media. I'm gonna say this again the media's pumping it out like there's a big stir. Concerning the protest after the commissioners anti-muslim rent what a second anti-muslim rant. Let's let's put that into perspective Lima tobe, the Commissioner remarked on her Facebook page that congresswoman retreated to leave was HAMAs loving anti-semites, which is true..

Former Representative John Delaney, Richardo Hedo, West Virginia and businessman. Andrew yang. Many others. Have set up exploratory committees that include Senator Elizabeth Warren. Let's get into the growing list now with ABC news political analyst, Alex Cassiano on the live line who joins us now from DC. Good morning. Alex. Good morning. I Senator Harris completely bypassed that exploratory committee phase and jumped right in does the early bird. Do you think get the warm when it comes to a party's nomination? The early bird gets the worm. When the early bird has substance has strength has has if you're a week in shallow candidate than a long campaign, just expose your weaknesses, but come laris tough.

But Alex does she pick off maybe votes or people that are interested in her from the Elizabeth Warren camper the Kirsten gillibrand camp. Yes, I think she does especially Jila brand Warren. And is seen more as a radical fiery radical and as a populist who's got a very clear message. I'm for the working class Harris has a different appeal. She is also candidate with a sense of humor pleasant as well, not as fiery red hot. So I think Kamla Harrison's going to wear better over the long run than Elizabeth Warren does Joe Biden get in. And what about Bernie Sanders is he done or does he run again Bernie Sanders got forty percent because he was the only alternative to Hillary Clinton. Guess what? He's getting twenty percent in the polls now because there are lots of other alternatives. So his scooter does not look bright. And Joe Biden he missed his window forty one H W Bush became president.

"One. A cold day at the Martin Luther King junior memorial here in Washington DC, what some people filtering through one of the things open today on this holiday that honors the work of Dr king, particularly on his work on civil rights. We carry on a conversation on that work, particularly where it stands with race relations and other issues with two guests joining us here in our Washington DC studio, we are joined by Armstrong Williams radio TV talk show host and columnist also joined by Leonard Steinhorn, he's the co author of by the color of our skin illusion of integration. And the reality of race. Also teaches a pro American University. Both of you gentlemen, thanks for joining us this morning. So you told me that we were together a year ago to talk about this issue. Let me ask him. Let's do that. As a starting point. Where are we a year later on the issue of race? You know is. It's always a work in progress. I think what people are realizing is that none of us are group's. No matter what part of the world. We've come from the thing that unite us is getting to know each other learning each others values or virtues. I'm willing to bet you professor Steinhardt no matter how many issues he may have with the president United States if they were to sit in a roof or couple of hours, they will find much common ground, and that's what we need to do. I mean, we need to find the value in each other. It's the only way you're gonna find respect the country is so polarizing and it's not always about race. Sometimes it's about economics. Sometimes it's about the policies. People look at things different because we come into this world different. We have different experiences, but experiences makes this country who and what we are. And so as we get the new just like professors thrown Harley we were here a year ago. I really liked this guy we didn't necessarily agree on much, but I saw value in his perspective. And so I've had him on our show, and we created a dialogue, and this what we can't be afraid to get to know each other professors signed horn. Well, I sort of agreeing a lot of ways it's really important for people to humanize each other to get to know each other to understand and appreciate each other's human dignity and respect them that really was part of the core of Martin Luther King's message, which is to see people by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin. But at the same time, historically, people have been divided by groups slavery identified a group of people and enslave them. Segregation was about a group of people and segregated and dehumanize them. We've had laws in our country that have put people apart because of their groups. And so we have to look at the history of how people have been divided by groups particularly by race and understand the impact there, for example, today, there's such a wealth gap between white and black. If you have a bachelor's degree, and you are black. You have won six of the wealth of any white person. Okay. If you have a bachelor's degree in your black. You only have seventy percent of the way. Wealth of a white person without a bachelor's degree. That's because the history of how black people have been treated in this country. Why is that you look at housing, for example, which is one of the primary ways which people have been able to accumulate wealth between one thousand nine hundred thirty eight thousand nine hundred sixty to ninety eight percent of the mortgages in this country went to white people. What does that mean middle class neighborhoods? Get created businesses get attracted good jobs, come their housing prices. Go up people are able to accumulate wealth. When you don't have that. And you've been discriminated against by government policies, and redlining and other factors like that. You can't so come to the same starting line is everybody else you have to think both as individuals relating to each other in a human basis, but understand the history about how race as a group has divided responded. He's. It would be foolish. Fodder any of us to believe that you can immorally tomorrow, bankrupt way, enslaved people, treat them as chatter, and like animals and use the physical, mental and spiritual resources. Obviously it's going to give you an advantage throughout history. All of us must have whore. The stain and humiliation of America. Slavery and dangerous. Segregation, and racism and bigotry. While I wholeheartedly embrace professor Steinhorn, and how this play a role policies lead to involve government needs to involve because why is it that in two thousand nineteen we're talking about of the same issues. You know, sometimes helping people you may have the best intentions, but it can be very detrimental. What we're willing to do is look at our policies like the great society programs and look at what exactly work and what hasn't worked and what has benefited people we've learned that. When you get people to dignity respect when they earn their way in life. You put these kinds of systems in place where people can settle now. Most people don't want a government, and they wanna be able to take care of their families and government policies are not always in the best interest of those who are poor and on the bottom rung, Atlanta. And it's not and you cannot emphasize blame everything on race. While is it an issue individual striving sacrifice work ethic disciplined. Yes. There are various that will challenge you, and it's always in society. But you gotta get a good education. You've got to become literate. You've got to learn how to read you've got gotta make. Sacrifices. You've got to change the education system. There's something in our system. It's not working. There's no reason why in two thousand nineteen a kid can come through high school and graduate literate, and yes, there's an economic gap and that economic get wine, but you got to talk about financial literacy, you don't even talk about financial literacy and teaching kids how to balance a checkbook, and how not to be exploited by banks, and he's financial institutions, and I saw a piece in the New York Times recently where why is it that government and private industry exploit the poor will the anyone else because they believe they're ignorant. They can take advantage of them. And that's what they do. So why your points are absolutely on point? You cannot take away individual responsibility accountability. And the fact that government policies these programs must have Bob. So they really empower people that you speak about the phone lines are open Twitter as open as well. If you want to give common or thoughts to this conversation that will take place for the next fifty minutes or so with our guest Armstrong Williams, the columnist radio talk. Show host and Leonard Steinhorn professor at American University. Professor Steiner and go ahead. Well, absolutely people have agency, but all of those people who had agency to get their bachelor's degree and find that they have less wealth than people who never earned their bachelor's degree. What society telling them, what are the structures in society that are preventing people of color from gaining those forms of equality from from with white people. So I agree that people have agency and people have to be able to do things for themselves. But let's also not look at what government does is what you phrases a handout. Okay. Because if it's a handout, then it's a handout to every single business that gets a tax expenditure. It's able to depreciate whatever it has its machinery, it's a hand out to people who have 4._0._1._K plans and are able to get tax advantages because of that, but we have our government priorities. And the question is it's easy to criticise priorities when they are targeted for people in poverty, but we have so many lobbyists here in Washington DC who actually used. Government to their advantages, and nobody calls that a handout they actually have high paid people in their nice leather shoes. Going to Capitol Hill every single day to be able to gain advantages for them. Poor people don't have that. They need a voice, they need a voice, and so much of what our problem is is really derived from history, and I'd like to quote James Baldwin on this because what he said about history, I think is very compelling, and he said history does not refer merely or even principally to the past. On the contrary. He said the great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us are unconsciously controlled by many ways and history is literally present and all that we do history is present in all that we do we cannot erase the legacy of discrimination of segregation of enslavement of policies built into our society that favor certain groups of people over others and continue to do. So that continue to have an impact on people's lives every day. And when you're somebody who gets dressed. Off every day. You get your law degree, you go to work and somebody sees you as a file clerk rather than on top lawyer. That's the death by a thousand cuts discrimination built upon hundreds of years of history that do dehumanize people. It's not individuals all the time on then completely. It's on the rest of society. How we treat each other. And how we deal with the issues related to historic quick response. And then we'll take calls. My only point which he refused as wres- is that policies must involve where you really empowering and helping people and not harming them and keeping them in poverty and these evaporated David situations. I think President Obama and the Congressional Black caucus is a wonderful example to challenge what he's saying President Obama, someone extra minutes respectful and the Congressional Black caucus. We spent all this time and resource electing people to power because we said these people were in the seat of power if they were in the Senate, if they want a congress that they were in the legislative, my gut don't let them make up to the White House that lives of black people will change they would change these racist institutions, and it did not happen because it's much deeper when you try to say it's all about race. And segregation there's a structure there's a systemic structure that is in place and even with the president of the United States with a record number of members in the Congressional Black caucus not. Not much is changing. You ask yourself why it is much? There's a spiritual illness that we don't want to address. There's a there's an issue where people just cannot get out of poverty why? Because poverty is a political football for some people in this country. They use for elections. There's used the drive this wedge that you reason why you have these issues it's racism, so you need to vote for us, and we've got to stop using people for political gain and empower them in a way in L wise where it passes on for generations to come. Hold on your thought. I apologize only because I want to get a call in real quick. It's trite Michigan starting us off Democrats line, you're on with our guest, Jerry, go ahead. Good morning. Pedro ingests in greetings yet again from a very flows and snowy Motown. Before have two questions and a comment. If I could if you have time well.
