"Now we get the kids in school at an early age, We can exaggerate. The kids had to think we should break up the family kids that look at the state as the family as the school is the officials as their family that is the parents teaching them. And so those are the two primary reasons for going to that point was a noble thing. You know when I saw their intentions behind it, where they were coming from when they created it, the thought of it I saw I saw the evil behind. That was a noble venture.

I've had you on before. Okay you're right you're right. I'm just so tired. What puts the pause button on the bus? who leads to an Latino rebels campaign? You know. We're good we're good. We are so good. I'm so happy to have you back. Listen for those people. That don't know what they need. That lead that idea is can. Can you just begin to break it down for people that may be have not been following. What's gone on in the literary world mostly New York World of the last last couple of weeks so tell us about? What is it about that idea that is that you guys are doing well? I'm a I'm a student of social movements. Yes and I try to be a practitioner every so often and so I think I can. We can legitimately say that we have a social movement because we have a victory in the victory came about after McMillan flat iron. Her books decided to publish along with people. In Hollywood and Oprah Winfrey to push the book called American dirt as what Sanders he's narrows caused not just the great great American novel. But the great novel of lasts America's right to that effect so would all that promotion that you gave the book that resembled a marvel comics launch. You know the way they do. These multi-platform launches with multimillion dollar budgets. On made it a big deal and so when Miriam Gerbo my colleague and Dini that Talia terrarium defacto kind of leader of US spiritual leader in this. This is an and other leader of us in his She wrote a scathing essay that was rejected by MS magazine and so she decided in her own unique way with their own unique unique voice to call out the novel for what it was which was a cartoon of of of a Latino experience trying to be so to us as a great work of Literature on power with gotta see a Marcus and Gabriela Mistral. Row after Lanyo I mean I just. I still have a hard time trying to put put the name. Janine comments next to that. Yeah so that really moves that when I saw Mary. I'm just say I I was moved in a lot of us. Were moved to action and it moved. W Bose as well who is on top of this and together. We came to form the united idea which talk about is about Nothing less than the insertion of the Latino voice in the national conversation of the United States right now. We're focused on you know in the inclusion of our voices in US literature as expressed in the number of books the number of writers the number of editors the number the people in the media ecology the number of right. You know critics all of which if you look at the numbers are are pathetically low abysmally hello and so So yeah we're about as our name says about our dignity and we have measures of dignity for corporations like Macmillan or flatiron books as well as for critics as well as our own people. What constitutes dignity and so for example? I've been using the the frame very consciously of the decline in Florida the Folkloric Industrial Complex of Latino Literature. ooh What does that mean it means is basically that the as constructed in US literature you get a book contract two degrees you dance. Mambo Salsa a Ranchera 's dress recipe over and and you start you know dancing wight gays right on event. Here in New York is called Tom is about Latinos in the white gays. And the way the whitegate shapes us through the publishing industry so some that have chosen to kind kinda throw on their colorful clothing and act in ways that are safely an expectedly Latino done. That's what I mean by the decline and fall of the Folkloric Co Industrial Complex of Latino Literature. So the question for us. You're in New York this week. You guys had a press conference anyone that wants to follow the American dirt issue We talked to medium good about two weeks ago. My colleague Maria Hinojosa Doodo media did a did a one hour. MPR Latino USA that everyone needs to listen to I actually wrote about the white gays for NBC News So you mentioned the white Gazeau what what happened. You said this is a victory. So what exactly happened this week for you to say that this was a victory. Well let me describe describe the campaign because one of my roles was very much involved in the design and implementation of the strategy that got us to you meet with one of the titans of US Global Publishing McMillan and it's an imprint flatiron. The publisher let me show American dirt so to get there. You have the explosion of energy around American people criticize the content and the writer and all. Aw Ridiculous and actually really racist marketing of it. When you have for example the now infamous? Barb wire centerpieces at a lobster ops to dinner to celebrate American Dirt Bran Janine comments from an organizing perspective. Did her part to be the gift that they kept on giving from an organizing perspective but that that that energy kind was focused on the book and on her and some of US realize well in we need to kind of pivot this and so our first pivot was to start questioning one of the Thai another Titan in US Latino US publishing and Literature Oprah Winfrey Honor Book Club which has spread definitive role in pumping this book up to be something of Steinbeck Ian of an epic. I mean. It's almost like they've been trying to make it to be homer's Iliad of our time for for Latinos when it was written by this woman who has friends who paint their fingernails with with barbed wire and stuff. So you know we always sort of realize we don't need to focus on her any more her book and she herself has done the damage and they're going to go do their thing but what came out of this explosion was the realization of the crisis in. US is publishing especially as it Threat as it relates to Latinos in the United States who have fewer than one hundred and fifty books about what is published by US per year when you have thousands of books published every year so so then we started many of his questioning Oprah Winfrey in her in her promotion of this. She didn't seem to listen to the beginning. And then little by little. We started catching her attention. was that of other. People like Salma Hayek who admitted publicly that a picture that she took and south that she put online with her promoting. The book was actually Fake News. Because she didn't even read the book right. That's right so you have this explosion of energy now. Starting to focus going on oprah going to oprah only to bring more attention and momentum to it because we had by this time we had already sent a letter to McMillan and flatiron books saying that. We wanted to meet with him to discuss how we were going to try to remedy this matter and take the conversation in a more productive a place for all of us right so they responded immediately they wanted to be with us and we agreed into an are meeting was last Monday. And after some back and forth An- Anna realization. That we weren't going anywhere and that we have a mass ask very incredible amount of power in our community. That's there for us to to to work with. They agreed along along with us to a plan that includes a very measurable into you know indicators of the numbers of employees is not just a flat iron but throughout the the Macmillan ecosystem marketers editors and other people involved in the decision fusion making process. That brings you literature in the United States. So this is this is a major victory in that

Ms right in restaurants to use miss anymore is not Mr. MRs, MS right. Is it appropriate ever to use mis- mis-? Right. When did care that works. Yeah. I would general in general. The it started in the seventies with MS magazine and glorious army that I'm forty years buying the times. Jennifer say here fifty years behind the times. Really? So Jennifer is here we've all put on our oxygen masks and now you can help everybody. Jennifer. You know, they say shower. Me. And now, he's thank you, really. All right. Let's talk about the boy scouts. This is a crazy story more than twelve thousand boy scouts have been sexually abused by seventy eight hundred leaders volunteers. This is according to an expert working with the boy scouts, and this is what is reflected in court documents, according to several news organizations boy scouts of America said in a statement quote. We sincerely apologize to anyone who is harmed during their time in scouting. And quote lawyers ads on the internet are seeking clients now to file sexual abuse lawsuits against the boy scouts the states have been moving to adjust Justice statute of limitation lists of the victims of long ago, sexual abuse consumer damages these sexual abuse settlements have already strained the boy scouts finances to the point where the organization is now looking into chapter eleven bankruptcy. A boy scout bankruptcy would be bigger and scale than any other sects of us bankruptcy. According to an attorney who's representing more than three hundred victims in New York state. These claims are they're trying to get them to obviously, go beyond the statute of limitations. So that they can be dealt with. But the fact that this is part of the such a prevalent part of what seems to be such a good organization the boy scouts people that make it through to eagle scouts. I think all of us know, what that takes has respect for it. But the fact that this is another place where older men in power can pray on younger men. It's it just pretty. On disgusting. Yeah. Voodoo you trust anymore. That's the question. We were talking about this a little bit earlier going into a hotel room or something with your boss. Have somebody, you know. But you don't know him that. Well, why would you do that? But why is it that it brings up pressed issues? Why shouldn't you be able to trust somebody and his or her intentions, but yet with is it the news media that really blows these things up or is it really that bad when you can't be a student with a teacher, or you can't be a nurse with the doctor where you can't be a secretary with the boss. So you can't be whatever it is. You can't be a boy scout with a leader. You can't be. It's just it's absurd. But yet it is a part of life is it that bad. We think it's really that bad or do you think the news media exaggerates some of these claims look at these numbers of the boy scout says it'll? Pretty significant number there. More people that get out of the boy scouts probably have nice things to say about it. Then the people that don't but at the same time. I think it's a good reminder because we didn't really talk about sex or gender when we talked about the Catholic church abuse scandal. Although most of the people who were victimized were boys not in every case. But in some case, it seems though that when we talk about sexual harassment or sexual abuse. We typically focus on women, and I think it's really important that we don't forget that. There are a little boys and men that get caught up in all of this. And it's a good reminder when we hear a horrible story like this to make sure that we're checking in with our male children as well as our female children because I think it's our inclination probably as parents to go we need to protect our daughters. But also think about our sons and all this because a lot of sick people who wanna use their power to get what they want or what they desire, and I say this. I don't know the rights been depend on this. As I'm thinking about it. I'm kinda editing my thoughts, but I I think it's worth a minute or two of our time. When we think about the what sort of thinking about what I just said in a manner of speaking the the business about who can you be with an who can you trust a new family trust? And we go into this whole business. The news media so focused on the most obsessed with this business with Trump in his tweeting. And what does that really mean about him and kind of crazy yadda yadda? So there's this from the top on down. This question about people in the mental health. Tom a Britney Spears, and what was going on with her? And it brings me back around to something. I think we've talked about this week last week last month last year. The whole mental health stability of our society. Or maybe even the world has the world gone. Crazy are there so many people that are so maladjusted missing jested, whatever that that normal doesn't even seem normal any. Well, how do you find normalcy? Where do you find normally think about the people in your life that you think are normal who do you think are most of the people in your life, Victoria, CARA generated, the most people normal, and what your definition of normal? Well, right. Yeah. Any such thing. I think everybody's got something and it. Yeah. I used to think is a kid. And this is what was really sad is as a kid. I'd look at my family, and my family looked a lot different than everybody else's family that I grew up with because of a divorce and separation and lots of stuff going on. And I always thought cash it'll be so nice to be normal. But whatever. I think you realize normal normals a moving target most of the. Yep. Normal is something that's really it's like who's your next door. Neighbor. Do you even know is it normal funen? Oh when I was a kid growing up. I we didn't it wasn't weren't a lot of people around because I was out in the country. But I knew who my neighbors were my folks knew who the people in the neighborhood were we have weekly potluck suppers at the old meeting house. You know that kind of stuff that's really gone or most people don't even know who the hell their neighbors are right? Do you know most of the people in your building, Victoria? Who'd you say anybody going on right happy about that? I don't want to. I don't want to know. And I know that's New Yorker in me. I don't wanna know the my neighbor is know New Yorkers just kind of want to live and let live and we don't really want to get involved. So I think Jennifer in your neighborhood, how many of the people there you've been in that neighborhood, your grandparents owned the house for you did. So how many of those people around here? Do you know? Well, most of the people that were here, my grandparents are here now gone. But there are two people that I know in my neighborhood. Yeah. Carrot, you know, people in your building. How many people you know in your building? Considering their hundreds of them not a ton. I've run my neighbors. And so I know them when they come home. But I I don't know. I think for me apartment living is much different. I think it's much harder to recognize because I don't see them when they come home. I might hear a door closed, but I don't have a window to look outside and see who's there next to my parents house. I know both of the neighbors that live there do I know all the personal details about them. No. But I know their name, and I know their jobs and stuff like that. But I don't know. I think it's much harder in an apartment complex about. It's a really different world. We live in master, Jack. That's for sure forty million people move in America every year that average American moves eleven times in their life. That's really pretty amazing. You can't get to know anybody really very well under that circumstance. It's more here in our country. They plays house except the no bat there's still some areas in the Middle East and Africa where they're actually not. Matic. There have any homes think about we all think about in terms of normalcy. We think about having a home as being normal. Well, in many, maybe even most parts of the world. Yeah. That's the case. Most people have a home, but in some parts of Middle East parts of sub Saharan Africa. Don't have homes. They just keep moving around. It's really it's it's hard to conceptualize because it's so different living a life that way most those people you if you're able to talk to him. They tell you. They're happy. So what does it take to be happy something else? Maybe go around. This is the talk tree and its finest here. Yeah. Right. Yeah. What is what makes you happy about that at sixteen after the.

"So before the internet when it was just Zien ze and MS magazine in these things in the the brave people who came forward and started telling stories about sexual abuse sexual abuse was not something that was talked about. And they came out, and they told their stories and not that sexual says been a radical and not even close, but we talk about it. Now, we sort of a culture understand that. It's bad news flash. But that was because people told their stories, and they started talking so nine and a half or ten years ago, there weren't people telling stories about grief about how hard it is to be her sometimes and people telling stories telling stories telling stories finding each other making community that has started to make change happen. We see that in sort of some some more progressive education or some of the books that are coming out these days opening these conversations with kids about how do we talk about foundries? How do we talk about boundaries and consent for your physical body? And then how do we talk about communication skills? How do we talk about how you handle bully on the playground? Or if you're the bully like all of that stuff is starting to happen. So I don't I don't think we're far off from having education in the classroom. But how to have difficult conversations? I don't think we're there yet. Because I don't think the grownups are willing to have difficult conversations. But the the. The ease with which we tell in here stories these days the media through which we we have to share until stories to tell the truth about the things that are painful and hard in this culture and around the world. I honestly gosh. I can't even believe that cynical me is gonna say this. I feel hopeful that something like that. Will happen. I do too. I do too. I just don't know how long it will be until it's widespread enough that we don't have the climate that we have in our culture right now, that's gonna take some serious undoing and that's gonna take people being willing to be uncomfortable. And that's hard, right? So. Here's here's a good example of this. So most of my followers on social media have experienced out of order de so child death, and and baby loss and suicide natural disasters and all of these things and every once in a while post something about pet loss. And without fail. One or two people will chime in and say, how dare you write about pet lost my baby died. I early you kidding might. They will go off. Now. First of all, they haven't been in my community, very long to know that that's not how we treat each other. However, you know, I I have a practice. I'm not always very good at it. But to listen for the message beneath somebody else's words, and what I hear in. That is somebody who feels like there's not enough listening. There's not enough compassion in the world to go around. So how dare you talk about pets when nobody wants to talk about my baby. So I'll come into the comment section, and I'll say something along the lines of it's really hard isn't it to to give airtime to someone else's loss? When you feel like yours is invisible. And nobody wants to talk about it. We also find this when a celebrity has a loss in their lives and suddenly everybody, or you know, David Bowie dies, and everybody's like outpourings of grief and support in all of this and the. You know, the grieving people in your community are like you're never met the guy, and you met my sister, and you've never so much as offered your condolences. Like, there's a there's a distant compassion dissonance there. Right. And so the thing here is that we functionally compassion in. This culture is a finite resource. We don't share it very freely, right? We have this sort of competition about who gets to have airtime in their pain who's paying worse, and we do that because compassion is a scarce resources when resources are scarce. What do we do? We fight over them. How dare you talk about pet loss when you won't talk about my sister. Well, if we want a culture where compassion is a abundant vast resource than we have to sharp start being extravagant with sharing..

"Lust film is yours and sisterhood. It features all kinds of people from across America today, addressing the camera to read aloud and share personal responses to letters written in the nineteen seventies to the editor of MS magazine. The country's first mainstream feminist magazine Kenyans film is going south. It's a second in the series that's entirely reliant on the editing process as it's fully constructed out of YouTube clips at first seemingly completely random and eventually shaping the trajectory of several characters to explore the meaning of truth in the internet era, both filmmakers share their processes and how they make the zillions of decisions that go into an edit on their own. So if you're considering whether or not to edit your own work for, if you just want to know how the mine of editor works, definitely give up a soda. Listen. So for context, do you always at your own work? Do always edit my own work, and for me in very attached to the idea of editing own work and it, yeah, it feels to me like so much of the thinking and decisions happen for me in the editing room. That's really where the film is made for me. But also for me, there's a huge and I come from kind of an experimental film background. So for me so much of the process of figuring out what the materials emerged to be happens through really like playing and experimenting and touching things in that room and moving things around myself. To me, it feels really central to filmmaking to actually be the one who's in the not just in editing room but doing that ending. Okay. So going to see. Of always being interesting my films even into like twenty years ago while shooting my own film ended it myself. Most of the writing happened on the table. Now that us like found footage, it's better the all I do. It thing. Off another in. An idea to start with it starts with the cut and the other one's fall after. So for me, all the creative thinking, concepts exertion, the arising beside like to explore subjects, drew it research. Everything happens in on India, getting room, and I'm so glad. Now. Like when I started it was with Steinbeck with film and cut stoops now it's like I can do barely everything with my laptop, everything with the laptop. So it's part of my life. I had to redo. Nurture like I take care of my. And it's really process something takes a year or two to finalise some. So it's so way of being with the material occupying film somehow to despite our over it of editing. That's interesting point you make to that back in the day. We were editing with St. Maksim actual film and that not only that has changed, but where you're finding your material, especially you Dominic is totally changed. Its, we'll talk about how the industry. The thing is that while I was making more traditional. I mean, like she'll Ming ended it seeing and working with them when they moved to computer. It wasn't internet yet. So. Couple years later, my first PC then the this called internet did my suit. Mating room. So it became some sort of a distraction. You know, I would have to fight looking at my emails while eating chatting with my girlfriend like this. Watch born. All kinds of distraction. So decide to use it as source material instead of a distraction. So that's how I started to serve the women. It. Clips. Wow. So you leaned into the distraction of the drug. It is wanted to add a thing about researched because you mentioned also the stadium where the research and conceptualization happens in editing and thought. I think there's a big spectrum, I think even documentary of how much people imagine they know their project before they begin. And I think the world of grant making and funding and pitching really encourages you to pretend you know what you're making before. You know what you're making it, but I also, I don't know what I making and till I'm editing it. And for me, that's so important. And when I started film, it's not because there's a statement I wanna make or thing they want to do, but it's because I have a bunch of questions that feel like there may be interconnected or could be interconnected. And for me, it's really a curiosity that motivates me to explorer and spend time with stuff and sit with stuff and let the foam emerged from whatever that stuff is..

I'd love for some more stuff on that to come out from the CIA involvement in in projecting her in the public eye. Why do you think she got so fought popular and famous go back to all of her stupid quotes about women and men, and and think about the stuff that she said that was a product of manipulation by the CIA that was a product of putting her out there? So that we would start feeling manipulated people. Don't go back into the sixties and go gee was every woman oppressed in just vocalized it at the same time in America. How did that spontaneously occur? It didn't they were manipulated into it. They were manipulated into their oppression. They they wanted to seriously.

And one of the motorcycle wives she came over and she said, she just want to tell you, I really enjoy MS magazine. Yes, right. I couldn't believe it. And then she said, isn't that woman with you? Isn't that Alice Walker? I really like her poetry. I mean, you know, it just teaches you so much about stereotypes. Yes.

And so my conclusion is that we all have a purple motorcycle inside and what that story shows is that we all make prejudgments about people in our lives. I was telling you that when I read that story reminded me of the time of running on a road in Indiana and being approached by this pickup truck. And it the pickup truck. We had a confederate flag in the back. So naturally, I was laid no in I'm out here by myself. And why did I come by myself? And you know, what am I going to do? The guy pulls over and he slowing down to tell me that he loves watching the Oprah show with his wife. It's just one of those pickup truck moments. One of those purple motorcycle moments. The pursuit of change is taken Gloria to virtually every corner of the earth..
