"Given the nature of how our society is structured. America is still segregated, and so is pollution, says Robert Bullard professor of urban planning and Environmental Policy at Texas Southern University in a phone interview. But. When professor bullard known as the father of Environmental Justice I drew attention to the intersection of race in the environment. He had trouble gaining traction with established organizations. Most environmental groups saw the issues that we were dealing with as social issues. He says, but breathing is not a social issue. Clean water is not a social issue. In recent years environmental organizations have taken steps include people of Color on staff and on leadership committees, says Professor Bullard, but so far that diversification hasn't extended to funding. The economic justice part is where we need to make inroads in twenty twenty, and beyond he says. After forty years of clamoring for investment in Environmental Justice Professor Bullard must be forgiven for losing hope. Yet in the current moment. He sees potential for real change. I see this as a great opportunity to make a great leap forward. He says not just a baby step, but a great leap. Out to today's stories. Our first, story. How do you played the middle in a time of intense polarization? Gop Senators in north. Carolina and beyond are struggling to find common ground between staunch trump supporters and those who have become disillusioned by his presidency. Split ticket voting has become increasingly rare as the country has become more partisan and more polarized. In Two Thousand Sixteen all thirty four Senate races were won by the same party that won the presidential race in those states, and while presidential candidates often have coattails helping to elect down ballot politicians on the strength of their own popularity. The reverse can also be true. With President Donald trump the May cut both ways. He inspires passionate levels of support among his party space, while also repelling many swing voters, a dynamic that has thrust. Senators and close races like North Carolina's Thom Tillis and to an exceedingly delicate balancing act. As the president's approval ratings continued to slide overall former vice president. Joe Biden now holds a commanding lead among independence and a widening majority of Americans disapprove of Mr Trump's handling of the endemic. These endangered Republicans aren't disavowing the president, but they aren't exactly hugging him close either. Tillis is in the same boat as some other senators who are in trouble says they've been McLennan a political science professor at Meredith College and Raleigh North Carolina. They are all trying to walk this tightrope and it's a challenging type to walk. This story reported by story. Hinckley and Nashville.

I wanted an organizing principle and not just which are the close ones that was going to tell you about the close ones, you know, everything's a referendum on suburban moms or industrial mid westerners or immigration freak out others. How about a referendum on centrists because here's what I find happens as we watch politics during the year, the last few months, there'd be all these primaries, and sometimes an extreme or immoderate or non centrist candidate would sneak through. And sometimes like, Alexandra Oku Cortez. It be well, she's definitely going to win. They just went with the democratic socialist instead of the old guy. But sometimes you'll hear the analysis. Ooh. That choice really imperilled the party's chances come November. And now that November has come. We've forget which ones were the.

So what were the supposed extremist who have damned those electable centrists? Let's review over in North Carolina. You have the ninth district with which which really should be a very winnable district for the Republicans.

He lost to a preacher man a challenger. Now. The candidate Mark Harris and of Mark Harris, a local professor interviewed on W R A L says is maybe three percent too much fire. Eight percent too much brimstone. Meredith college professor David MacLennan says Harris, maybe to socially conservative Harris's message is a little bit more difficult to sell to the number of women in that district. And how. We've got young voters you've got progressive. All right. So how's it going? Well, I'll tell you five thirty eight ranks Mark Harris's chances as being fifty three point three percent.

Harris a conservative Baptist minister is slipping in the polls behind McCreadie, a democrat and former marine David MacLennan a professor of political science at Meredith. College says the Trump rally is a sign that Republicans have to fight harder than there used to refer good President Trump is coming in is a sign that they still see that racist winnable inconceivable to decades ago for a Republican president to need to come into that district Nick Lennon says it's become. Because of shifting demographics people from other states and other countries are flocking to jobs in places like Raleigh Durham, and Charlotte. Young generations of farmers are doing it too. He says like the rest of America, Democrats in North Carolina dominate the cities and suburbs. But things changed the further out you go look at the political signs. I mean, you can almost see at a county line the shift between the democratic signs are on one side of the county line. Then you move into another county more rural county, and all of a sudden, it's Trump country the line isn't so clear in other areas. Polk County where the view of the political trendline depends on who you ask county Commissioner Ray Gaspar sin says the area's about sixty percent Republican, but he's the only elected democrat. And while he sees his party dominating in statewide offices in the future that doesn't mean the entire state is turning blue. We have one hundred counties in at least eighty percent or very rule which trend to go much more Republican county. The Republican chairman dick Shaughnessy says rural Republican voters like Trump. I'm seeing a trend where there's a movement away from the Democratic Party to the Republican party. Just because there is a lot of dissatisfaction with what has been going on at the national of Trump's rally could be the closing pitch for Republicans who want to keep at least the ninth congressional district from turning.
"meredith college" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"I think you know, at the time I didn't realize David, but I, I'm sure that must have been going on at some point. I realized if you don't make friends right away, then you're not gonna have friends. You've gotta make a friend hold onto them as long as you can, and then they may go or you may have to go, but it was it was hard. I was joking about the shots, but but I mean, the real impact for me was was friendships and having to make them and give them up quickly. I tried to stay in touch with people, but it was hard. You went to first Meredith college in Raleigh, and you can study math? I was. I was I couldn't decide what I was going to study and a couple of my math and couple of other teachers in high schools said, well, you did well, a math SAT. Why don't you major in math. And I said, well, what am I gonna do with that? And one of them's that we could be an insurance actuary. Thankfully, for the insurance industry, I didn't go in that direction. I kept thinking, well, what am I? Where am I going to see people? I'm going to be stuck in an office. You know, with a calculator, we didn't have computers back then. Yes, but I, you know, the interesting thing was my freshman year in college. I was taking advanced math and the the teacher was an instructor. He was a grad student at North Carolina State who basically thought women shouldn't be taking calculus. And so I think every probably every woman and it was an all women merit an all women's school. Every woman in that class probably changed her major. Think of the loss of talent there. When I'm thinking about is how much hated calculus. I wish somebody had said I was qualified to. I wasn't qualified to take it, which I think I proved over time. Then you went onto Duke, and at what point did what let me ask you a different question before we get to sort of how you you made your career decision you were, you grew, you lived and were a student in the south during a pretty tumultuous time of the civil rights movement, how how did you, how do you remember those years? And I remember first of all, being shocked when we moved to first of all, go back to Taiwan. I was twelve, I think. And when my father got word that he was being sent, we were being moved to Georgia. And I remember thinking that's where they have plantations and people go around and cotton with bare feet. I mean, I just didn't. I, even though my father, I visited my. Grandparents in North Carolina, I felt Georgia just felt like a different place. And so I, I was almost bracing myself. I ended up living with my grandparents in North Carolina for about six months before I joined my parents in Georgia, but I remember being wary of it, not knowing what we were going to. We moved there. We found out Augusta's a lovely southern city, but it was the time of segregation. There were still white and colored only water fountains in the department stores. The schools were segregated. I went to a white only. This is after having been to military schools which were very much integrative. Thanks to Eisenhower Drouin and Eisenhower us. The military schools were integrated. So I had gone to school with kids from all over. So you think as a kid, this is this is weird. This is not right. It's not right, but it was the way it was and we lived in the, we lived in Augusta. And so I went to a white elementary school junior high, and then high school and we, it was just accepted. You knew I knew there was something wrong with it. I felt I felt. You know, I felt not just helpless to do anything about it, but I kept thinking where where are the people who are going to change this? And you know, I've talked, it's funny. I've talked to shoreline hundred all about this because she was she grew up in Atlanta, and as you know, she was one of the first or integrate historic figure. She and Hamilton homes integrated the university of Georgia in nineteen sixty two. So I was in Augusta then in high school and there were people throwing tomatoes and rocks and eggs at them..
