"We are uh uh putting the entire system in a position where it's oriented towards justice as opposed to detectable boxes that can you check to demonstrate one's effectiveness the other thing that i was reminded that what you said is it's like everyone who wants to be woke right now has read the new jim crow and they're like a bunch of stuff is being commonly talked about but it's not it sounds like we have trouble focusing the public on the rate issues to really apply pressure on and it's not really thinking about this how do you how do you brand and market and describe things in a way that gets the public to focus on the on the actual important pressure points in the legal suspiciously why i'm hoping the john's book will s will make you know similar waves to the waves that the new jim crow made because he actually has the numbers to show you that even things that you think of as as a portent and unjust are not necessarily the things that are driving the major trend that we can fight all of these things right i have enough levin my heart to fight at least seven wars now against all these different things but but the seriousness of the prosecutorial discretion issue is is really something that we can't ignore and we can't be focusing all over energy on making the wrong things being the face of this movement i'm still looking for something to to quell the sort of disenchantment i have with the legal system to the system right now but i want to relate something that happened well we were making the story we were on the phone with mary lee williams and we considered the possibility of changing homers name to marciniak to referring to him by his last name only and all of a sudden he became a little far less sympathetic character in the roads in the process of making the story we were very conscious of the fact that by using his name is first name homer he became much more sort of.
