Midnight Moment 3 - burst 1
"Good. Evening Fellow Patriots by cryptic here, and this is your midnight moment for Aug today's topic GonNa be about racist. I, know it's a topic that makes people squirm in their butts pucker tightly and be quite uncomfortable. But we need to have an open discussion help change the mindset, raise awareness and. To learn how to be united. Tell me I know I know it's a topic. No one knows how to openly discuss without coming off as racist. Or. Insensitive. But hear me. I believe some of the contributing factors to why there appears to be a larger racial divide than when I was growing up is because of you guessed it black lives matter organization. The way people were raised generation to generation. And the biggest of them, all the media look the beyond him is a Marxist organization now wants to destroy our great us from with it. They don't care about, America they don't care about US Constitution the bill writes we the people or that all lives do matter if you don't believe me just check out their website. They only care about their own agenda fundraising and the lives they saved matter because those lives and deaths narrative. Quick Search on Marxism Socialism or for that matter Venezuela and determine for yourself if it sounds good. That it's the way you want to live because if B. M. continues to successfully extort companies, corporations and individuals like through cancer culture and threats of violence and is not stopped than that is what the USA is going to become on a week clear here I do support the message but I am saying stop supporting the organization. BLM is bad for everyone except themselves and their financial benefactors, AK George Soros. I support. Peaceful protests to convey a message for positive change in anchorage anyone and everyone to exercise their first. Amendment, right to help make that change. But when you went to take over city box, burn down businesses and destroy communities in the name of a cause or because you just want to start shit regardless of your race you my friend are a piece of shit and deserve to be treated as. Such you might be saying cryptic you mad, Bro what's the matter with you? Listen I believe there are some genuine people caught up in these rights protests that do believe in the message, but they're supporting the wrong groups in the wrong causes because they do not understand the difference between the message black lives matter and are equal to everyone else and the black live movement wants to cause chaos. I believe there are a few Batman racist cops out there. But. They do not outweigh all the upstanding cops that do protect and serve the communities and upload their host to the law and the US. Constitution they swear to protect just like there's some bad racist people in every race. But if we should not define race by some bad apples, why should we defy law enforcement that way I feel gutted? To my core that families have to raise their children to handle situations and interactions differently based on their color, everyone is entitled to be treated equally under the law and protected by the US Constitution regardless of race religion sexual. Orientation etc.. Now, if you're going to act stupid tough or disrespectful when you're putting the situation that otherwise would be a civil interaction then that's on you. Not those that you put into that situation by behaving badly disrespectful or breaking the law. But on you is a message back lives matter important. Absolutely I believe black lives matter as much as every other life and yes, I've heard it many times. Owners matters a racist term and not the same as black lives matter. You know what I have to say that fuck off all lives matter American lives matter if you need a racer colored in front of that, then you are promoting racial superiority and is you that are the racists? We are all humans. We all bleed the same color. In this audience, we are all Americans we all deserve to live our lives to the fullest of our abilities. I personally would not support any organization such as the him for one minute because their agenda is rooted in eliminating history. garnishing or eliminating everyone else's rights to virtue signal to the rest of us while making themselves out to be morally a racially superior everyone else fuck that. Had take a short break here. We'll pick up back on this topic after the break. Potential patriots is his pulse bargain with a shameless plug for our new gear store. That's right.

That Shop Dot Patriots Dot Com fifteen percent off right now for a limited time now back to the show. Welcome back everybody just to recap who are talking about racism today and the reason things are fucked up as they are. So we call him Morgan Freeman. said it best on you gave a few years back to the best way to defeat racism is to not talk about it. I think he. To stop using it as justification for failure. Now, why we should have discussions to help figure out how to break the cycle racism and raise our children to not see your judge. People based on color but instead of on a person's actions and the way they represent themselves look if you're an asshole I'm a call you an asshole regardless your skin color because that's how you come off. That's how you act. Has Nothing to do with how you look what I take for Mr Freemen's quote is that don't use skin color identify a person. Let me ask you listeners this when you're talking to your friends to telling the story you say, Hey, I was out with some friends last night in this guy tried to pick a fight with me or you say, Hey, I was out with some friends last night in this white guy. Black Guy. Guy Etc. tried to pick a fight with me. And that's the part about not talking about race. I am focused biggest supporters of racism the fucking media, what the media is the biggest supporter of racism. Even as much as they try to say, they stand united the media's no longer news is entertainment and opinions and other ways garbage that leads to racially divide us all. I posted this on our facebook page a little while back. There were two articles written by the same new source when high headline read. Missouri. Women. Fatally. Shot by sheriff's deputy during a traffic stop. She was on art, the other article headlined red. Black man shot dead by Atlanta cops in Wendy's dreitzer. Both written two days apart by the same source. This right. Here is the problem. The media purposely motivates racial divide and rights. Sorry peaceful protests to sell papers and to drive the agenda of the left NBL. Going back to Morgan Freeman quote. This is what I take away from not talking about race media could to published the second headline without talking about race and it would have still had the same effect. But no in order to sell the story and helped push agendas, they've got to go ahead and add in the race aspect racism is going to disappear. Is By being able to have intellectual and civil conversations about what is causing. Thank you tuning into this week's midnight moment.

Poll: About a third of Americans approve of how Trump handled El Paso and Dayton shootings
"Kerry dan whether it's from history or from fiction. If if you're a student of the presidency you probably have a very good sense of how much the american psyche yearns for leadership in times of stress or national tragedy the day we celebrate that is fictional president thomas a with moore played by bill pullman in the movie independence day but in real life presidents have also all too often been called upon to make stirring speech. Is this not to fight. Aliens butts to bring together a country. That's grieving and confused often at some of the worst moments in the country's history. Remember george w bush with the bullhorn after nine eleven franklin delano roosevelt and the day that will live infamy ronald reagan after the challenger disaster faster and barack obama singing amazing grace after the charleston church shooting those are some of the few times in recent decades that partisanship has really really and truly been set almost entirely aside in our latest n._b._c. news wall street journal poll just thirty six percent of americans said they approve of president donald trump's handling of the shootings in el paso in dayton and that's not much better than he did in the wake of the pittsburgh synagogue shooting and and it's only a tiny bit better than his approval rating after hurricane maria hit puerto rico it is better than his approval rating for his handling of charlottesville arlit still only one in five americans said at the time that they approved of how trump handled the unite the right rally and the ensuing violence in charlottesville worlds fill almost exactly two years ago and here's a reminder. This is not really normal. It's not normal in american history for a president to only have a third third of americans are so approving of their reactions in the wake of a huge national events or tragedy sure i mean bush enjoyed sky-high. Hi hi approval ratings after nine eleven and almost eighty four percent of americans supported bill clinton's response to the oklahoma city bombing but also even after after hurricane katrina which is one of the most devastating parts of george w bush's presidency and one that made him particularly polarizing even after that advent still half of americans said they approved of his reaction to the hurricane at the time so trump is unusual in how americans have reacted to his response to national tragedies and when you take those numbers and you combined them with everything else that we know about public views of the president you get a very muddy muddy picture like wild majority disapproves of his handling of things like charlottesville trump is still enjoying some of the highest approval of his presidency when it comes the economy which is great news for the president but you might ask what is the most powerful thing when it comes to the two thousand twenty election what trump means jeans for americans wallets or something more holistic. That is the million dollar question but here's one clue from the data that our pollsters crunch that we noticed this weekend there are a total of nine percent of registered voters in this poll who say they like trump on the economy but they disapprove of overall for all and when those people were asked if they support trump for reelection or would rather vote for a democrat in twenty twenty three quarters said they would prefer for a democrat which is probably not great. If you're the current resident of the white house now for the record we did not aw test the favorability or any other kind of measures of president thomas a whitmore played by bill pullman independence day but i would love of deceased some head to head data with him versus the fictional presidents played by harrison ford and air force one and morgan freeman in deep impact those those would be some interesting cross tabs.

"morgan freeman" Discussed on Conan Oâ€™Brien Needs A Friend
"I don't know if you have a talent for this. And and a lot of people have wasn't Morgan Freeman Dow, that's the thing. This was during imitating. Well, but this happened. Remember that period when they were all the I think Chris rock called it the magic negro movies where there was a a black character that would help awake. Character legs guide him spiritually like the height of movies legend Bagger Vance and all and Morgan Freeman in everything and it was just like was remember after and by the way as he single this. No one in the crowds going as they're like. Yeah. Maybe listen to this guy. And then there's a halo behind that. I remember going up my room. Like was that my Bagger Vance? Doing like because he was so articulate and he made such a cute Makoto. God I remember that in the in the world of late night. And so many people come and go. But there you see sometimes people get into late night. And you'll even read interviews we'll say, well, I'm going to do this for a little bit because I'm gonna take a break from the the movie career, and then I'm gonna or more or if this works. This is gonna launch me into the action movie career, it's gonna launch me into this or launch me into that. And remembered we were doing some really weird sketches and in on television and getting a paycheck and thinking, why would I can't leave this? Yeah. This is the only thing is ever going to get better than this. You know, I might I fall and wanna make it clear. No one was ever interested in put him in a movie, nor should they be. So it's not like I was down any offers. But I remember it occasionally. So we'll do you ever think you'd want to? Maybe you could do a buddy movie. Like, why would I know? I is a and I will not work with as good writers have around me right now, and what comes directly out of her head. We get to execute. We can execute whatever we can see and even more fun because we have such a limited budget. We have to think of really creative ways to pull it off, which makes it even more fun. Yeah. I mean, all that's why would you that's the that's the dream of a comedian? When we did a thing. This air couple of probably a couple of days after this sketch. Aired we do a sketch where this very talented writer. We have named Andre dubus God. And he's love him. And he's in the audience and he's dressed up as one of the game of thrones characters. And he I think that he's there because he loves game of thrones. And and he talks game thrown. But then it turns out he really loves the show wall burners. And I'm like what he's like. Yes. Making hamburgers viewing and. Diskettes gets even stupider. That's the beginning of the sketch. That's what I love. But then he has interns and his interns are falcons falcons that come in to deliver information to me about the what's coming up. The thing that I love the most is that just have stagehands with falcons on sticks. And at the end, he says, let us flee and he runs up the stairwell the audience, and he's followed always tell the director, stay wide. So that we can see the stagehands running after him with long fishing poles with birds hanging off of them. And I want you to stay on it until the last union stagehand made his way running I'll with the fishbowl, and I thought. If I had was smart, and it was looking for my finances. I would have gotten myself into a world of comedy where we animate the falcons all this like, no, it's never going to get better at this. The thing I think up the stairs with fish bulls..
'Green Book' suffers from Hollywood's Common 'Magical Negro' Problem
"I know we talked about green book Schorr did. But the Oscars are this Sunday. And this will be might win best picture Lord. No Roma please let Roma win. I think we have to talk about it. Because there's one scene that I cannot get out of my mind. Okay. Which one so it's the scene were Tony Villalonga. Who is the Italian American guy from the Bronx who's been hired to drive. Don, Shirley, this black musician, two gigs. Okay. So it's a scene where Tony saves dawn from a bunch of unruly racist at a bar. I mean, I can imagine. What bothered you about that? But why bother you? This scene is meant to teach the audience that the guys that are beating up Don are the real racists. And Tony is kind of like a milk toast racist. He's not that bad of a racist. He's only ever called Don a couple of names behind his back and kind to face and the whole movie up into this point has given you the impression that Tony doesn't like black people. But the moment the movie takes you into the scene in the bar. You understand actually these are the real racist because they're capable of physical violence against someone just because they're black and Tony he's not really a bad guy after all a little bit of needing. He needs a little bit of coaxing. But you know, what he's actually on the right side of things, and you can bring him back over to the right side to the good side of history. And it's inferior eating it's infuriating Wesley. The idea that racism is only bad if it escalates into physical violence, and that's the tiny little microaggressions things that dehumanize. Is and demoralize and stereotype aren't actually really bad types of racism after all, so maybe they get a pass. Right. It feels like a very sanitize seen about racial mix that's designed specifically to make audiences fill better about themselves, and is amazing that you're bringing this up on the weekend of the Academy Awards. Yes. These same Academy Awards in which green book is nominated for five Oscars and is likely to win two or three including picture. Yeah. And you know, it's in company with movies like star is born in the favorite and vice about Dick Cheney, and of course, black klansman and Black Panther, right? Boy, if green book does win it'll be a really good company with the best picture winners of the last thirty years specifically when it comes to films about race, right? I just think America is obsessed with this sort of racial healing fantasy where there is a work that like being near. A black person can do to rehabilitate prejudice people and all that rubbing up against yelling at friction tension touching. Hugging. Driving will bring him to the light. Right. It's its own trope. Yeah. Right. What other films in the past have done this? What are you thinking about? I don't know. I mean, if we're just staying in the in the thirty year window, something like Forrest Gump. Ninety four win best picture ninety five the story of the very simple man name. Forrest Gump mom, always said life was lack of box chocolates sits on a bench and start just talking to anybody who sits down next to him about his his life. Never know what you're going to get. He winds up befriending. This other guy named Bubba Goodall. Bubba good day. You can catch pounds. Shrimp. Shrimp is the fruit of deceit. You can vote ball broad bike it so both have the same IQ. But the point is that force is the person on the journey and a person like Bubba is another step along the way. So one of which puts them on campus when George Wallace's denouncing the integration of university of Alabama. Right. And part of that sequence when Vivian Malone was one of the new black students drops her notebook on the way inside the school, the visual effects, people make it. So that forced picks up the notebook enhance it to Vivian. And it's just weird to me. Like, you realize like that like the movies about forest, not Vivian who? I would say has a much more interesting American story to tell. I country is all about and it isn't the forest gets made a better person because of black people. But it is the forest gets to look scans or not even see a lot of the problems in this country, all of which are shoulder by Jenny who played by Robin rate who is near some Black Panthers who do nothing when she's beaten up by her white piece boyfriend, the racial politics. This movie are crazy anyway, all the politics in this movie to be fair are crazy, but they all sort of benefit for his Gump the fantasy here, of course, if you're good enough and simple enough, America's racial problems can be hailed give this movie a best picture Oscar. Okay. I mean, what else crash best picture winner a two thousand six Lord. A movie. So frightening. The Geno worth refuses to watch it facts facts, only, basically, it's one of these race and racism are driving. Everybody in Los Angeles out of their minds, the Persians the Mexicans the white people the black people, but the thing that really takes me out. His you have all of these different people of different races all being nasty to each other because of race, but guess who the redeemed characters are in this movie. Oh my God. I don't even want to know, Sandra. Bullock, of course, like the second biggest racist in the movie, she gets carjacked, by ludicrous and Lorenzo Tate. Maybe I'm Alexis really tough. My think it'd be best. If you just went upstairs random, wait for them to break in. I just had a gun pointed in my favorite lower. Your voice was my fault. Because I knew it was going to happen. But the white person's he's two black men walking towards her. And she turns and walks in the other direction. She's a racist. Right. Well, I. Got scared, and I didn't say anything attend seconds later. I had a gun in my face. Now. I am telling you you're a Migo in. There is going to sell are key to one of his homes and miss time. It'd be really fucking great. If you acted like you actually gave us shit. And then what happens? She falls down the steps on a lot of pain killers or something. And decides at her Mexican-made Maria is her new best friend. I assume area wants to go home. But you know, we don't know 'cause movies out about Maria. It's about Sandra Bullock, but the real star that movie is Matt Dillon racists cop. Matt Dillon feels up Tandy Newton at a traffic doesn't like black people, but certainly put his hands all over a black woman. So she gets into a horrible car crash cars on fire cast who comes in to save the day. Hear me permissible be your. To get an extinguisher. Good that fire. Best supporting actor nomination for that gentleman. Okay. I'll get you out not Dylan approves he's not a racist because he's capable of saving some black person's life. Even after he's violated it and then driving miss daisy. Of this sort of problem. And it wins. Best picture nineteen ninety came out in eighty nine huge hit. Yeah. Better movie than you think. Actually, because I think it understands the thing that you and I are talking about right? There is something inherently impossible about black people and white people being friends at least, according to the way, the country is set up to like have both those friends be equal in the friendship. So it is a story of this old Jewish woman. Daisy were them. Sorry. This old named daisy were than related I hope. hope Not. not. Our son bully hires Hoke Morgan Freeman to drive her. And home nowhere else.

Historian Henry Louis Gates Jr. On DNA Testing And Finding His Own Roots
"Research at Harvard and has produced numerous books and documentaries about African American history. Terry spoke to Henry Louis gates in front of an audience last may when he was in Philadelphia to receive WHYY's annual lifelong learning. Because you talked to everybody about their genealogy. I wanted to talk with you about yours, and what you learned about yourself and the larger meaning of what you've learned about yourself. I don't want to start with the person who got you started engineer allergy. It was really it's like the photograph of her of your great. Great aunt, Jane gates, and you regret grandma. Great grandma. Yeah. Thank you. So I wanna read something that you wrote about her and you got this from the eighteen seventy cents. The Jane gates, h fifty one female mulatto laundry and nurse owns real estate valued at fourteen hundred dollars born in Maryland cannot read or write now she was born in eighteen nineteen died in eighteen eighty eight or nine years old when you found her picture and got this information from the eighteen seventy census so reading this Milwaukee. Oh, she'd been a slave the first question that comes to my mind. And I don't know if it was the first question that Cam to yours was wishy raped by the man who owned her. I can't believe you asked this question. Because is that you personal. It's a horrible way to start the average African American the average African American is twenty four percent European. Now think about that. And most DNA companies in the United States will tell you that they have never tested an African American who was one hundred percent from sub Saharan Africa. This is called an admixture test it measures your ancestry back five hundred years approximately. So what that means is that it's the percentage of if you had a perfect family, treat what percent would be from sub Saharan Africa. What percent would be from Europe or percent would be native American African American love to joke about this African Americans all think that they are descended from a native American and every American has less than one percent native American ancestry, but they have twenty four percent European ancestry. So where's that come from? It comes from slavery. Was this an equal sexual relationship? Of course, not. So obviously rape or at best cajoled sexuality was the cause. But there are exceptions. When I did Morgan Freeman. Wins family tree. It was obvious through his DNA that he was descended from a white man who was an overseer on a plantation in Mississippi, and we knew the name of his great great grandmother in the name of this white man, so overseer slave plantation rape. Right. Except in the next scene. I showed him their headstones there were very nice to each other. As soon as the civil war ended. They became common-law husband and wife, which was illegal Mississippi. They live together they had kids in their very next to each other. So let's get back to you, Greg, Greg. Greg. So you assume it was not a consensual relationship, but she managed to own her own home five years after being freed from slave for which he paid cash. So you don't do that. Because of this white man, you don't get fourteen hundred dollars by saving your nickels and dimes a slave, right? Yeah. So obviously somebody gave that money she paid cash for that house in what was largely a white neighborhood and our family my cousin. Johnny gates. So said house to this thing, it was just put on historic register in Maryland, and that cool thing, but I saw that photograph and read her obituary on the day that we buried my father's father Edward Saint Lawrence gates, and the obituary said died this thing Cumberland, Maryland, January six eighteen eighty eight aunt Jane gates, and estimable colored woman and that night, and then daddy showed my brother and me. Dr Paul gates now chief of dentistry Bronx. Eleven in hospital. Very impressive. Well, it's the spirit of my mother. I could have won the Nobel prize and somebody said, congratulations. My mother was tell them about your brother who's.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, I'm Lauren bomb. And today's episode is another classic from our erstwhile host Christian Sager. He's here to explain why we're all weirded out by the sound of our own voice. Hi, I'm Christian Sager and welcome to brain stuff. Have you ever heard a recording of yourself played back and thought, oh, why do I sound like that? I happened to me every time. I listen to this podcast. It is weird right? Usually our voices sound deeper. But when played back the way everyone else hears them, they're higher tenure. Why does it sound so different in? Why do we hate it so much well, the sound of your voice reaches your inner ear in two different ways, the vocal folds in your throat vibrate creating sound waves that travel through the air, but those sound vibrations. Also conduct through your body, particularly through your skull and bones are skulls lower the frequency of these later vibrations as they've bounce around inside our throat mouth neck before reaching the ear's cochlea through fleshy tissue in our heads. The surrounding bone spread out the vibrations lower their pitch in. Enhance the lower frequency vibrations. So your voice sounds fuller and deeper when we hear our voice played back on a recording. We don't get it filtered through flesh and bone what we're hearing. Then is only the air conducted sound of our voice as waves of pressure. These vibrations are caught by our outer ears and then transmitted through our ear drums where they vibrate. Three. Bony Ossika lls before reaching the cochlea in both cases. The cochlea converts these vibrations into impulses that are sent to the brain. But with the elimination of the bone conducted sound we end up hearing, our voice the way, everyone else hears it most of us have had this experience. And we hate it. We're used to the combination of the air conducted and bone conducted sounds of our voice, it's what we've lived with all of our lives. So of course, it's unsettling to hear something so different than what we're used to. But remember this. This is how your friends have been hearing. A new your whole life to them it is normal. So just relax and rest easy, knowing that everyone cringes at the sound of their own voice. Even Morgan Freeman. Well, everyone except Morgan.
