Jack Posobiec Shares His Take on the Arizona Midterm Disaster

"Us as Jack posobiec Jack. Welcome to the program. I want to talk China with you, Jack. But first, your thoughts on Maricopa County looks like they're about to certify Jack, you or our co-pilot throughout the entire saga with us. That will go down in the history books, your thoughts, Jack. Well, Charlie, I'll just say this, if what happened in Maricopa County had happened in Fulton county, Georgia, you would have had Stacey Abrams and the NAACP and everyone else from MSNBC to CNN, the entire litany coming out, demanding an investigation of what went wrong and they'd be calling it voter suppression and to be calling it duly so, Charlie, you noted it. The day before talking about long lines, potential traffic jams that we saw, people waiting for hours, people turned away. It's clearly voter suppression. It is the textbook definition of voter suppression. And for them to simply refuse to acknowledge it, flies in the face of everything that we saw that day, everything that I saw even as someone who's coming from outside of Arizona, that's not the way that elections ought to be held in the United States. And by the way, if we're going to say that we stand with the people of China in their calls for freedom, then we ought to also make sure that we don't be hypocrites because we have to look at our own system and pull out what the splinter in our own eye.

Are Men Generally Happier Than Women?

"I don't know the issue, maybe there were so many unhappy men, but you don't meet them. See, you meet the guys who've succeeded, at least on society's terms winning a leap college, good job. A lot of men know elite college no good job. And they're not particularly happy. So I don't know today. I think there were a lot of unhappy young people, but you're right, there are more young women, but I think that there's another reason work satisfies men more than it satisfies women. And that what I just said to you is like saying the N word at an NAACP convention. Right. Yes. To acknowledge the reality of. How much more satisfaction men get from work alone, and that's the way we're built. We're not the same, the two sexes. And this is just another denial of reality.

"The gospel of thrift. But the Boston riot, as it soon known, has done irreparable damage to Booker. The reality, or perhaps the myth of black Americans being united under his banner is gone. It's becoming clear to all that WEB Dubois isn't part of a small fringe opposed to the wizard of tuskegee's economic focused patient approach, but rather a part of a legitimate sizable break that wants to go faster. Harder. A pack described as radical or militant. And that break is only growing. In 1905, Dubois reaches out to select black leaders. The talented tenth, if you will. Who are disenchanted with Booker. Not Booker rights. He proposes a conference for organized determination and aggressive action on the part of men who believe in Negro freedom and growth. To oppose firmly, present methods of strangling honest criticism to organize intelligent and honest negroes and to support organs of news and public opinion. Including himself and other organizers, 29 men from 14 states answer this call. They meet the next month, from July 11th, through the 13th, 1905, at a lovely hotel on the Canadian side of Lake Erie. It's a busy few days, but most notably, they organize as a group. The Niagara movement, and craft a declaration of principles. This declaration does not dither. It makes several unequivocal demands, including full manhood suffrage, civil liberty for, and I quote, all American citizens, honest economic opportunity, the end of Jim Crow, education for all American children, enforcement of the constitution's reconstruction era amendments, and other basics of full American citizenship. In conclusion, the declaration expresses gratitude to our fellow men and from the abolitionists down. And finally, the document contains a list of duties they willingly take upon themselves. Let's take this in fully. Giving us a chance to absorb it. And while we are demanding, and ought to demand and will continue to demand the rights enumerated above, God forbid that we should ever forget to urge corresponding duties upon our people. The duty to vote, the duty to respect the rights of others, the duty to work, the duty to obey the laws, the duty to be clean and orderly. The duty to send our children to school, the duty to respect ourselves even as we respect others, this statement complaint and prayer, we submit to the American people and all mighty God. Rights and duties. Clearly, these are thoughtful men who understand the full meaning of citizenship in a republic. These Niagara movement leaders never name Booker. Still, this declaration of principles is something of a declaration of war on him. He knows it, and with a sincere conviction that the far more aggressive Niagara movement isn't helpful, but damaging. He opposes it. Ardently. But his opposition doesn't stop its initial growth, particularly mid the injustices of next year. It's late in the evening, August 13th, 1906. Well, it's quiet here in Brownsville, Texas, and what a welcome change that is. See, it's only been a few weeks since the U.S. Army garrisoned the 25th infantry regiment in this southern Texas, heavily Hispanic, U.S. Mexican border town of 6000. But that's upset many of the town's white citizens because the 25th is an African American regiment. And now, at least three men in the regiment, two of whom are known to be model soldiers. Have reported false accusations, assault, or harassment from locals and customs officers. In fact, last night brought new, unsubstantiated accusations that a soldier attacked a white woman. Yet, all is quiet now, thanks to mayor Frederick comb and major Charles Penrose imposing a curfew. Good call. Too bad that won't hold. Suddenly, pistol shots ring out in the dark of night. Mounted police rushed toward the sound. They returned fire. Guns flash is an officer and his horse are both hit. The attackers continue, then advance on a local bar that strictly enforces the Jim Crow segregation color line. The terrified bar to keep tries to lock up, but it's too late. He's hit and eyes. Hearing the gunshots, fort Brown sergeant of the guard calls them into arms. As the 25th musters, they're sure as the townspeople attacking the fort. Yet, no salt cons as gunfire beyond fort walls dies out. The next morning, please return to the scene of the attack. They find Springfield 1903 rifle cartridges. The very same model used by the men of the 25th. Then 14 townspeople come forward as witnesses, swearing that The Killers were black troops. But the men of the 25th all claimed not to have participated in or know anything about the attack. U.S. Army concludes, it's a conspiracy that soldiers in the know are covering for the guilty. The matter rises through the ranks, past Secretary of War, William Howard Taft, all the way to president Theodore Roosevelt. The commander in chief discharges all men of the 25th regiment stationed at fort Brown that night. 167 men in total. Without honor. This without honor discharging rages many Americans. Particularly black Americans, they feel betrayed. How could teddy, the rough rider who fought beside black troops in the Spanish-American War, whose appointed African Americans to office and broke bread with Booker T. Washington. Issue such a hasty, sweeping draconian punishment. Meanwhile, further investigations cast doubt on the regiments assumed guilt. Major Charles Penrose not only stands by his men's integrity, but as a seasoned officer who knows his firearms is sure some shots fired didn't even come from Springfield rifles. He testifies to this during Senate hearings. The first two shots I heard were undoubtedly pistols, sir. And I think they were fired with black powder. Further, when called the arms all the men were accounted for. It's hard to imagine they sprinted through town and snuck into the fort on detected. Finally, when the guns were inspected in the morning, none showed evidence of use. Frankly, it sounds like a setup. In 1972, future president Richard Nixon will pardon the 25th regiments convicted soldiers. To say nothing of lost careers, only two will be alive to hear the news. But that's over half a century from now. Here, in 1906, black Americans have just lost their nascent Abe Lincoln like love of teddy. This shakes their faith in his adviser Booker T. Washington too. Though Booker voices his frustrations within the administration, he doesn't do so publicly and his ideological opponents in the black community hold that against him. We're still for Booker, the Brownsville affair, as this incident comes to be known, isn't the only large scale tragic event for black Americans in 1906.

"As you can see from that opening, the early 20th century United States has a sharp line. A color line, as it's known, separating black and white citizens. The racial segregation of Jim Crow made constitutional as we learned in episode one O one by the Supreme Court's 1896 decision in plessy V Ferguson is well entrenched. And today, our sojourn through the progressive era brings us to a new generation of black Americans facing these realities. We begin with the origins of our dinner guest, Booker T. Washington. We'll bear witness as he grows from slave to student to educator to becoming the voice of black Americans after his 1895 Atlanta speech. Or is it an Atlanta compromise accepting Jim Crow? That's how a younger black scholar named WEB Dubois will see it. While both men want the best for black Americans, the whole drastically different views. We'll watch their ideas clash as black troops and Brownsville, Texas, are gravely mistreated, and black Americans die in lynchings and race riots. Hence this episode's advisory. Again, heads up. This will get rough. We'll also hear about the Niagara movement, the founding of the NAACP, and then lay Booker to rest. Alas, the wizard of tuskegee, is not long for this world. Well, our path is set, so let's get to it by bidding a brief farewell to the progressive era and heading 36 years back in time to war torn Virginia. Rewind. It's an unspecified morning, April, 1865, and the sun is just rising over the borough family's small plantation inhales for the Virginia. Everyone enslaved here is up, alert, and excited as they walk toward the borough family's residence. AKA the big House. Their excitement has been building for a while, as it's become increasingly obvious that the Civil War will soon end with a union victory, but last night. When word came around that the morning would bring a big announcement, oh, that was it. Hardly anyone slept a wink. Has it come? The war's end? Freedom. The adrenaline of hope has energized these sleepless enslaver unions. They walk with vigor as the morning's early rays like the fields. Arriving at the big House, they find members of the borough family standing or seated on the veranda. There's also an unknown man. He more than anything will later stand out in the memory of one 9 year old enslaved child this morning. Standing with his mother, brother and sister, the young, all of skinned boy, watches as this unknown gentleman starts reading a paper. It's the Emancipation proclamation. Finishing the document, he then states plainly that all enslaved here are now free. The child's mother is overcome with joy. He'll later recall. My mother, who is standing by my side, leaned over and kissed her children, while tears of joy ran down her cheeks. She explained to us what it all meant, that this was the day for which she had been so long praying, but fearing that she would never live to see. Yes, the morning's announcement was just what they were hoping for. Freedom. It's a day that the young child named Booker will long remember. Booker has lived his entire life on the borough plantation until that likely union soldier arrived in 1865. Not the Booker knows how long that is. As the witty educator will put it in his future autobiography. I'm not quite sure of the exact place or exact date of my birth. But at any rate, I suspect I must have been born somewhere, and at some time. The borough family Bible will lead future scholars to conclude that he was born April 5th, 1856, and is thus 9 years old at this point. But Booker doesn't know that. Just like he doesn't know anything about his biological father, beyond rumors that he's a local white man. What the child does know is that his mother loves him. And her name is Jane. But with the Emancipation, Booker will leave this nebulous place of origin behind. Literally. His mother is taking him and his siblings to join her husband, Washington Ferguson, out in West Virginia. In a small town that will later be known as Malden. Hiking over mountainous terrain, Jane and her children travel for weeks to get to their new home. Her husband, Washington, or just wash, for short, gladly welcomes them, and soon little 9 year old Booker is working right beside him, packing barrels in a salt furnace. Booker will have little good to say of these days. He'll recall filthy air, rough neighbors, and a cabin that he'll describe as no better than his old slave quarters. One positive thing jumps out at him, though. The number 18. That number is assigned to his father, and the illiterate child watches with wonder as the straight line and two circles are stamped on barrel after barrel. It was illegal for slaves to learn to read in antebellum, Virginia. But that didn't stop Booker from craving education. Day after day, he had carried the borough children's books and watched longingly as they entered the schoolhouse. To quote Booker, I had the feeling that to get into a schoolhouse and study in this way would be about the same as getting into Paradise. Well, a salt furnace is no schoolhouse, but the eager child is ready for that Paradise. And if he can pick out numbers, he can pick out words. Booker's mother, Jane, procures an old copy of Webster's spelling book. With no help, Booker teaches himself the alphabet over the next few weeks. Then, the town's black community decides to pool money to hire an educated black man to teach their children. Booker's family can't afford to have him leave work for school though, so the determined youth studies with the instructor at night until, despite scheduling difficulties, he manages to go to work and to school. Finally in the classroom, hooker perceives something odd at roll call. I noticed that all the children had at least two names, and some of them indulged in what seemed to me the extravagance of having three. And so, when called on, Booker answers that he is Booker Washington. His choice appears to be a clear nod to his stepfather, but Booker will also attribute the selection to the names association with history, freedom, and greatness. Learning later that his mother originally named him Booker toliver. He decides that he too will indulge in the great extravagance of three names. Thus, he becomes Booker, toliver, Washington, or as we know him. Booker T. Washington. Years pass Booker keeps studying as his work shifts from salt packing to a coal mine. Then in 1871, the mine's owner, general Lewis ruffner and his wife, viola raffin, hire him as their house boy. The couple become crucial mentors to the studious teen, deepening his values of education, hard work, and self reliance. In his autobiography, Booker will describe viola as a lifelong friend. But his thirst for knowledge leads him away from the roughness the following year. Hooker's heard about a school back in Virginia that educates black Americans and trains them as teachers called the Hampton normal and agricultural institute. He's determined to attend. Located near the mouth of Virginia's Chesapeake Bay, the Hampton institute is 400 miles from Malden. Booker walks the distance, arriving penniless. For his entrance exam, he has to clean a room. No problem. Booker knows how to work. He prizes work. And with the white benefactor paying his tuition, he's able to commence his studies. As in Malden, Booker finds hard work and education go hand in hand. He absorbs the school's agricultural and industrial focus, particularly as the school's founder, former union general Samuel C Armstrong, becomes his mentor. Three years later, in 1875, Booker graduates with honors and speaks at commencement. So, Booker's done it. He's a teacher. Over the next few years, he returns home to teach in Malden, West Virginia, then heads back to Chesapeake Bay to attend Washington D.C.'s wayland seminary and teach at his Alma mater. The Howard institute. Not bad Booker. His education and accomplishments today are impressive, especially

"A few minutes before 7 30 p.m.. A 46 year old man with close cropped hair, all of skin, and dressed in a smart black suit, is riding in a carriage through the streets of Washington D.C. to The White House. Is it a tad anxious? Not that this is his first visit. No, no. In the month since William McKinley was assassinated and Theodore Roosevelt took office, the new president has already made it clear to this educator, southerner, and most influential black Americans that his council is very much desired. TR's already had him over. But this is different. Tonight, this gentleman a mister Booker T. Washington is going to The White House as the U.S. president's invited dinner guest. Turning up 1600 Pennsylvania circular drive, the carriage comes to a stop. Under The White House's iconic hillard port cochere. What thoughts must be going through Booker's mind? A natural diplomat, he frequently declined social invitations from why associates to avoid a possible misstep in this fraught. Segregated era of Jim Crow. But one does not say no to the president of the United States. So, the tuskegee institute principle acts like the honored presidential guest that he is. Thinking his colleague whitfield McKinley for the ride, Booker then ascends The White House steps and walks past the black door keepers as he enters the executive mansion through its glass paneled entrance. The roosevelts might be a blue blooded American family, but there's nothing stuffy about this dinner table. Take first lady, Edith Roosevelt. Per usual, Edith easily carries the conversation, even as she sits between and keeps an eye on her two young troublemakers. 7 year old Archie and almost four year old Quentin. I wonder which small creatures they've brought to the table tonight. A mouse, a snake. Yeah, there are animal loving Theodore Roosevelt's children all right. Kermit and Ethel are also present, chatting it up, but no one talks through dinner quite like our bespectacled mustachioed rough rider president TR. His speech may only slow down at the sight of servers with more of annual rourke's cooking. I can just picture his toothy grand growing as he gets a whiff of her famous biscuits, known as fat rascals. Oh, that smells good. And to either side of TR sits his two guests. His friend from Colorado, Philip Stewart, and of course, Booker T. Washington. Details on tonight are sparse, but I imagine Booker's great sense of humor and conversational skills are coming to bear. His nerves have faded. It seems the food and company alike are exquisite. With dinner over, the children head off to bed and the gentlemen make their way to the red room. The subject of discussion soon turns to the very issue on which Booker serves as an adviser to the president. Southern politics. There's no doubt that they mention teddy's recent victory. His recess appointment of former Alabama governor Thomas G Jones as a federal judge. Tom might be a former confederate officer and a Democrat, but he's an honorable man, opposed lynching and in favor of educating black Americans. Ah, that's why Booker recommended him. And now, the south loves TR. Aided by Booker's council and his southern blood from his Georgia born mother, teddy, the half southerner, as he likes to call himself, just might be the man to move the needle on race and break the Democratic Party's solid south. Or at least break Republican Party boss, Mark Hannah's hold on the GOP's southern delegates before the 1904 election. The men discuss their lofty dreams for the south until 10 p.m., then say good night, so Booker can catch the last train in New York. The next day, Booker is going about his business in the Big Apple when he notices a one liner in the New York tribune mentioning he dined with the president. Huh. Well, both he and teddy knew last night was somewhat significant. It was, after all, the first time a black man, a former slave no less, dying with a president in The White House. Teddy had even questioned briefly if he should invite Booker. But the mere fact that he wondered filled him with shame and solidified his resolve to do so. Yet, as Booker carries on in New York City and teddy does so in Washington D.C., it seems neither man fully grasps their dinners significance. There are a few exceptions, but newspapers south of the mason Dixon line come after both men. Hard. In Virginia, the Richmond dispatched proclaims, quote, Roosevelt dines a darkie. In Georgia, the Atlanta constitution complains that, quote, both politically and socially Roosevelt proposed to coddle the sons of ham, close quote. In North Carolina, the custodia gazette and the north carolinian. Both carry an editorial that shouts in all caps, quote away with Roosevelt and Negro equality, away with republicanism and all its abhorrent concomitants. But it isn't the death of his hoped for revival of republicanism in the south that worries teddy the most. It's the death threats, a South Carolina senator Benjamin Tillman announces. Quote, the actions of president Roosevelt in entertaining that will necessitate our killing a thousand in the south before they will learn their place again. Close quote. TR is baffled. Heartbroken.

"naacp" Discussed on History That Doesn't Suck

"A few minutes before 7 30 p.m.. A 46 year old man with close cropped hair, all of skin, and dressed in a smart black suit, is riding in a carriage through the streets of Washington D.C. to The White House. He's a tad anxious. Not that this is his first visit. No, no. In the month since William McKinley was assassinated and Theodore Roosevelt took office, the new president has already made it clear to this educator, southerner, and most influential black Americans that his council is very much desired. TR has already had him over. But this is different. Tonight, this gentleman a mister Booker T. Washington is going to The White House as the U.S. president's invited thinner guest. Turning up 1600 Pennsylvania circular drive, the carriage comes to a stop under The White House's iconic, hillard, port cocher. What thoughts must be going through Booker's mind? A natural diplomat, he frequently declined social invitations from why associates to avoid a possible misstep in this fraught, segregated era of Jim Crow. But one does not say no to the president of the United States. So, the tuskegee institute principle acts like the honored presidential guest that he is. Thinking his colleague whitfield McKinley for the ride, Booker then ascends The White House steps and walks past the black door keepers as he enters the executive mansion through its glass paneled entrance. The roosevelts might be a blue blooded American family, but there's nothing stuffy about this dinner table. Take First Lady, Edith Roosevelt. Per usual, Edith easily carries the conversation, even as she sits between and keeps an eye on her two young troublemakers. 7 year old Archie and almost four year old Quentin. I wonder which small creatures they've brought to the table tonight. A mouse, a snake. Yeah, there are animal loving Theodore Roosevelt's children all right. Kermit and Ethel are also present, chatting it up, but no one talks through dinner quite like our bespectacled mustachioed rough rider president TR. His speech may only slow down at the sight of servers with more of annual rourke's cooking. I can just picture his toothy grain growing as he gets a whiff of her famous biscuits, known as fat rascals. Oh, that smells good. And to either side of TR sits his two guests. His friend from Colorado, Philip Stewart, and of course, Booker T. Washington. Details on tonight are sparse, but I imagine Booker's great sense of humor and conversational skills are coming to bear. His nerves have faded. It seems the food and company alike are exquisite. With dinner over, the children head off to bed and the gentlemen make their way to the red room. The subject of discussion soon turns to the very issue on which Booker serves as an adviser to the president. Southern politics. There's no doubt that they mention teddy's recent victory. His recess appointment of former Alabama governor Thomas G Jones has a federal judge. Tom might be a former confederate officer and a Democrat, but he's an honorable man, opposed to lynching and in favor of educating black Americans. Ah, that's why Booker recommended him. And now the south loves TR. Aided by Booker's council and his southern blood from his Georgia born mother, teddy, the half southerner, as he likes to call himself, just might be the man to move the needle on race and break the Democratic Party's solid south. Or at least break Republican Party boss, Mark Hannah's hold on the GOP's southern delegates before the 1904 election. The men discussed their lofty dreams for the south until 10 p.m., then say good night, so Booker can catch the last train in New York. The next day, Booker is going about his business in the Big Apple when he notices a one liner in the New York tribune, mentioning he dined with the president. Huh. Well, both he and teddy knew last night was somewhat significant. It was, after all, the first time a black man, a former slave no less, dined with a president in The White House. Teddy had even questioned briefly if he should invite Booker. But the mere fact that he wondered filled him with shame and solidified his resolve to do so. Yet, as Booker carries on in New York City and teddy does so in Washington D.C., it seems neither man fully grasps their dinners significance. There are a few exceptions, but newspapers south of the mason Dixon line come after both men. Hard. In Virginia, the Richmond dispatch proclaims, quote, Roosevelt dines a darkie. In Georgia, the Atlanta constitution complains that, quote, both politically and socially, Roosevelt proposed to coddle the sons of ham, close quote. In North Carolina, the custodian gazette and the north carolinian. Both carry an editorial that shouts in all caps, quote away with Roosevelt and Negro equality, away with republicanism and all its abhorrent concomitants. But it isn't the death of his hoped for revival of republicanism in the south that worries teddy the most. It's the death threats, a South Carolina senator Benjamin Tillman announces, quote, the actions of president Roosevelt in entertaining that will necessitate our killing a thousand in the south before they will learn their place again. Close quote. TR is baffled. Heartbroken. He tells a reporter, I had no thought whatever of anything, save of having a chance of showing some little respect to a man whom I cordially esteem as a good citizen and good American. Instead, teddy has pandemonium, as vulgar cartoons of his wife Edith circulate, opposing newspaper slam each other and, though a failure, a higher assassin goes after Booker. The president has learned a hard lesson. Though he'll continue to counsel with Booker, teddy will never again break bread with the esteemed tuskegee educator, or any black person for that matter. In The White House.

How Chad Jackson Got Involved With 'Uncle Tom 2'

"Back with Chad Jackson follow him right now on Twitter at Chad O Jackson. He is co producer, co writer for the amazing sequel to Larry elders, Uncle Tom, it's called Uncle Tom two. Chad, you were a kind of star, I think, very early on in the original movie. It focused on your story as a successful self made man in the entrepreneur who didn't see himself as a vector because of his skin color. How did you transition to being a co producer and co writer for the sequel? I'm curious. That's a great question. And just to kind of close out the last thought that I was making. So, Stokely Carmichael, he said, oh, sorry, no, yes, yes. So let's go back to Stokely Carmichael, NAACP. Give us that historic nugget that most people have forgotten. Yeah, so Stokely Carmichael admitted in the 90s and we have video footage of this. In fact, it's an Uncle Tom two, where he said that he was part of that agenda to impress the term African hyphen American on the black folks and what he'd had in mind is if you think you are an American, you'll fight to preserve and to conserve capitalist America. However, if you know you're not an American, you'll fight to destroy America. And he was absolutely right. I mean, look at the riots, look at the fact that a lot of these egalitarian socialist programs that are being pushed in this country, they're using black people to do it. And it's unfortunate what's happening, but it was important to showcase that in the film, to your question about how I got involved in Uncle Tom two. As you mentioned, I was running my business here in Dallas, Texas, my business is still active. We're still going. We're still taking care of our customers. But I am a natural researcher. If something interests me, I'm going to obsess over. I'm going to dig deep into it and find out everything I can about it.

I should go into debt with the government and hope that the government somehow finds money out of thin air and forgive me of my debt that I would, you know, it just makes no sense. There's so many people. What about the people who paid off the debt? When they were struggling, they had to skip out on meals, they couldn't get a brand new car like they wanted to, they had to live with their parents longer than they wanted to because they were paying their debts off. And they went 15 years paying these student loan debts. And they finally got it paid off because they were diligent. And now you just giving away for free. I just don't understand.

The Politics of Activism

"So just talk to us about the wave of conservatism over the liberals and the school board and other aspects of these Florida elections that have gone on. Yeah, thank you so much for having today. I don't know, I don't think a lot of people know this, but you were a huge inspiration to me when I wanted to get involved in politics. You and Anna paulina, so to just kind of see how you guys have grown in the past year has been amazing. And I think my number one pointer to people why we've been doing so much work is local activism. So we're very focused on the president, presidential elections, the state governor, and that all matter. But when it comes down to your commissioners, your school board members, not a lot of people care about that. There's not a huge voter turnout for primaries, even here in Miami dade. The total number, the turnout was only 18%. So what happened was last year during the lockdowns when everything was going on with the masks. Our school and all of these COVID restrictions of some businesses, we, as a community here in Miami dade, we decided to get activated and we said, okay, if you guys want to masticate, we're going to be protesting outside of the schoolwork. We're going to be showing up, you're going to hear our voices and you're going to feel our present. And that's what really started the whole Google work parent revolution.

The Truth About Black America

"Don't get offended. Don't get upset with me. Don't kill the messenger. Just listen to what I'm saying. I am incredibly disappointed at what happened to black America. I am shocked and see the problem is is that people don't understand what happened to black America because you don't know the history. People have not given a clear, fair evaluation or articulation of the history of black America. When you go back to the 20s and the 30s, you see so much prosperity in the black communities. Where, when black people would be in their community, it would not be Indian people, Chinese people owning hair places. Black people owned everything in their community. The schools were taught by black teachers, the bus companies were black owned. The person that shining your shoes was a black owned entrepreneur that came from nothing. The black communities were thriving when men were having children. They were married to the women they were having children with. It was an honor. It was an honor to go to church and worship God. And have a Christian family. And I believe we did not have as many people out here, reaching for the government, hoping that the government become their God or the government can somehow become their fathers. Their husbands, we did not have that.

Is Failure the Future of Black Education?

"This ain't the white man that's got your kids scores like this. You know what I mean? Black people live in D.C.. You know what I mean? Black leaders are in charge in D.C.. Do you know some of these all black schools are primarily black schools, they have minority teachers? It's because they keep creating more fallacies to get you emotionally driven and is killing you. Instead of holding kids accountable and saying you need to be in class on time, you need to push yourself to make better grades. These people believe that reading math, arithmetic, you pursuing excellence in class, pulling your pants up, having good behavior, is white supremacy. I can't. I don't know how we got to this point. And it's sad, it's saddening to me that black people are failing all of these numbers. Black youth. This is the future of America. For black people,

NAACP Demands Biden Cancel $50,000 of Student Debt for Black People

"The NAACP is outraged at Joe Biden, but not for the reason you might think. So they believe that Biden should have canceled a minimum of $50,000. In student debt. The NAACP. They're only concerned with the advancement of one specific demographic. They basically tell all the other demographics to go screw themselves. But the NAACP. Quote the student debt crisis has a disproportionate impact on black borrowers and their families. All across all racial groups, black borrowers hold that most student loan debt despite also being consistently underserved by post secondary institutions. I know what the heck they're talking about. Not only can a black student go to any school in America, they also have historically black schools. So I'm not quite sure why the NAACP is upset other than the fact that they want more money.

Larry Elder Talks About the 'Uncle Tom' Documentaries

"Uncle Tom is all about the struggle of black conservatives throughout America from the time of slavery until right now that people like look at T Washington have always believed in hard work, accountability and becoming excellent. And his argument was that even in the face of racism, if you learn a skill, a job, a trade, as well as or better than somebody else, you will be rewarded because people want the best. They want cheap. They want good quality. They want things that work. When I was a kid, I used to spend summers, my moms ranch. And my mom, mom, farm, rather. My mom told me there was a black man who couldn't read or write, who was the best chimney maker in the south. And the way of determining a good chimney maker is somebody that does not order too many bricks because if you order too many, the guy that's ordering them has to pay for them and to make sure that Jimmy does not smoke. It's not leak. And she said he was always employed by all these white people that wouldn't invite him in for tea, but they'd invite him to their chimney because he was the best. And so there have been many examples of that. We explore that in Uncle Tom one about people that worked hard to learn the skills and learn trade even in the face of tremendous racism and Jim Crow still managed to succeed and to overcome. And then we talk about how this attitude has now been changed by these people like Jesse Jackson and Al sharpton and Patrice colors, the cofounder of Black Lives Matter, essentially telling black people that you're victims. Always victims. Eternal victims, if victims of systemic racism, enduring racism, foundational racism, to the point where it's changed the attitude of a lot of black people and the worst work ethic of a lot of black people and more importantly the family structure. With the welfare state, as I said, a million times, we've encouraged women to marry the government and we've encouraged men to abandon their financial and more responsibility. And now we have not a scandal, but a scandal and a crisis, Brandon, 85% of black 8th graders are neither mass nor reading proficient. 85%, that means 85% of black 8th graders are functionally illiterate. And the NAACP just had their annual convention and what are they talking about? Reproductive rights, voting rights, student debt, and police brutality. That's their agenda. And so if long as our so called black leaders are focusing on the wrong thing, the solution will forever be elusive.

Let's Not Overlook Another Important Decision Affecting Voter ID in NC

Let's Not Overlook Another Important Decision Affecting Voter ID in NC

"I want to talk about another important case recently decided by the Supreme Court that has been a little sidelined because of the big decisions on gun rights, the big decisions on preying on the football field and of course the biggest decision of all the decision that God decision regarding that overturned roe versus wade, the case I want to talk about is called burger versus North Carolina state conference of the NAACP. And here is what's going on in that case. It's a voter ID case. So North Carolina passed a law basically saying that you need to have voter ID. You can't vote without proper ID. And this has now been contested in court. The voter ID law. But as it so happens, the Secretary of State, I'm sorry, the attorney general of North Carolina is a Democrat. He's opposed to voter ID. And so in a kind of irony, you got the NAACP suing to get rid of voter ID. And by the way, think of how ridiculous it says. This is the NAA suite basically saying that blacks don't know how to get ID. These are the same blacks, by the way, that travel on a plane. And get ID. Make doctors appointments and show their ID, open bank accounts, ensure their ID, but somehow when it comes to vote, they don't know how to get an ID and so an ID requirement becomes somehow racist, it becomes discriminatory. It becomes, quote, voter suppression, I mean, is requiring you to show ID at the TSA, travel suppression, when the bank says show me your ID before you cash a check is that banking suppression, nonsense. But in any event, you have this case, the NAACP wants to get rid of voter ID and the NAACP is counting on the attorney general of North Carolina a Democrat to be on their side. Now he's supposed to be defending the law, but he doesn't agree with the law. And so the point is he's going to make it's almost like a prosecutor who wants the guy who's accused to get off. And so what is he going to do? He's going to put on a really bad case. He's going to put on a bad case of the jewelry goes, wow, maybe the guy didn't do it. So he healed withhold evidence that is incriminating why because he doesn't agree with the prosecution. He doesn't want to go forward. And that's what's going on here. And so the Republicans basically step in and go listen, we want to be able to file briefs that support voter ID because we don't believe that the democratic attorney general is going to do a good job defending a law that was in fact passed by a Republican legislature. So that was the issue. And so earlier, lower court judges had said to the Republicans, you don't know, you can't intervene here. It's the job of the democratic attorney general to defend voter ID. If he does a bad job, he does a bad job, but it is his job. And so the question here went before the Supreme Court is simply this, do the Republicans who have an interest in the law. They passed the law. Have the right to be able to weigh in on the case. They can't displace the democratic attorney general, but they can file briefs that say to the court here are our reasons for why voter ID is a good idea. And the Supreme Court goes, yes, they can do that. You can't prevent them from doing that. In other words, the whole idea here is that our legal process is

Suppose a red flag I saw one report in the Indianapolis papers that actually said that there's a problem because even if you have a red flag law you need to get the prosecutors to act on it after the police let them know Are there problems with enforcing those kinds of laws Yeah of course there needs to be enforcement of the laws that are on the books Absolutely That's first and foremost and should never be overlooked There is a role for all of us Obviously passing the laws and then the prosecutors that are seeing the cases the judges that are working with them and in some cases you know the courts are getting more involved if folks aren't if they look the other way or they don't prosecute And that's chief and number one is to make sure that there isn't a revolving door that these violent criminals aren't committing their second and third and fourth offense and in many circumstances like the horrific hard to imagine Latest masked school shooting And I'm grateful actually for our legislature who for years have stepped up to the plate and made sure that we've financially speaking had the wherewithal and commitment to make sure we're hardening or securing our schools themselves There is in year 2022 after so many painful as you say reminders of what can happen anywhere we have to make sure that we're addressing the violence aspect and then making sure when our kids go to school they know that's a safe place And in today's world that means you have to have security in place and will invest in those security measures We have plans submitted to our Indiana Homeland Security school safety plans schools safety and resource officers in these schools and then they've got that plan We're funding and we've done about a 110 million in funding to our schools

state of Indiana who are kind of scratching their head right now because the parents are saying when I go see my kid I have to have a badge I have to be signed in There's only one port of entry You can't breach that facility and get into a classroom let alone into the building And so I think we've got to make sure we're doing all we can to make sure those are safe places The final question to

"You've managed sheriff that you've managed to balance both sides of this because you know I've lived here now 7 years and I remember as you do vividly after the George Floyd incident there were obviously these protests some of the turn violent around the country And yet in the county where you maintain a Law & Order presence and a strict adherence to the law you know you never I shouldn't say you we I live in the county We never had that problem here There were some marches but everything stayed peaceful Everybody was obviously allowed to exercise our constitutional rights which is obviously appropriate We are a constitutional republic But we never had those problems There was almost zero violence here due to it I don't remember anything at all of substance How do you balance that Community policing Is it an emphasis on making community contacts God forbid something does heat up How do you manage to balance it here Well I think the operative board is balanced On the one hand we have zero tolerance for people committing crime but we're not bullies I don't want to be a sheriff that's known as the clickbait I don't say things to get myself on Instagram or any of these other apps We go into our challenge communities the underserved community I personally go I speak to the community leaders our NAACP chapter chair has my cell phone So I think we can do both I think we can do old fashion hardcore police work and yet be gentle and kind to our victims and be sensitive to the need to the community I don't think they're mutually

"Jussie Smollett sentenced yesterday. I don't know why I was drawn to that. I watched that for hours online. The whole process, he paraded out a bunch of witnesses that sung his praises. He's clearly a troubled young man. And perpetrated an awful hoax that one would think would be met with condemnation from civil rights leaders and prominent activists everywhere. I mean, after all, if you lie about, I hate crime like that, you're right there in the category of people who lie about serving in the serving in the military, which dishonors our hero veterans, if you're capable of that, you're really really flawed and deeply troubled and you're pretty bad person. So why would the president of the NAACP vouch for Jussie Smollett?

"To solve. And it is not something that will be solved overnight. If it were, it would have been solved a long time ago. But I do believe that it is the catalyst that will galvanize young people across generations across ethnic backgrounds and economic backgrounds to have us rethink the society we want to be in the United States. You know, as you know, the fight for equality and social justice is often described as one step forward two steps back. Where are we right now in that continuum, do you think? Well, you know, we've made a number of strides. I definitely would say that we are holding we're trying to hold the line not to swing, not to have the pendulum swing backwards. But there's no way that we can deny the fact that there is retrenchment, that there is a resurgence of bold, white supremacy, unlike that unlike anything we've seen in recent decades, we've always known that it was there that it was latent that it was an invisible force working and wreaking havoc in our society, but now it's been laid bare. We see protests in the street, we see attacks not only on individuals, but threats to HBCUs, where seeing school boards and teachers and administrators being threatened for simply telling the truth of our history. And there's no denying that that is regression, that that is not a step forward. That is certainly a step back. But I don't think we have to step all the way back. There is still an opportunity to use this moment to recognize and to show that the people who are advancing this very divisive movement are a minority in this country. And it's easy to forget that because their actions are often headlines. And their actions are often, there's often a spotlight on what they do and not enough attention on the ways in which we are unified against those efforts. But there's more that we can do to redouble our opposition to this effort to take us backwards to make sure that we have the backs of our teachers and the backs of our students who want a culturally responsive, inclusive, culturally, and critically rigorous education, which is what the confrontation of our history requires and demands and something that we should embrace. Our children are strong enough for this. They can handle the truth of our history. Because it will only fortify them in the fight to make the future even better. Janae, what does it mean to you to be taking over as president and director counsel of the NAACP legal defense and educational fund? It means the honor of a lifetime. This is a legacy institution, a black founded legacy institution that has been at the center of holding our democracy accountable to itself. And to be at the helm at this critical time when our democracy is at a crossroads, is not only a challenge. It is a privilege, and it is an honor. And that is mainly because of the work of past presidents and director councils who have developed and nurture this organization and have solidified its reputation. And the staff that fuels the work that we do, and the clients who are at the center of everything that we do at the legal defense fund. It's why we exist. They are the core of our mission and it is, as I said, the honor of a lifetime. To be in this position at this moment. What legacy does sherilyn Eiffel leave? And what's the biggest lesson you've learned from her? Well, I think it's hard to summarize Cheryl and legacy in a short sound bite. But I would say she's left a legacy of transformation and visionary leadership. She has shown not only through her brilliant legal strategy and thinking through the critical interventions that were needed on the front of litigation and research and policy and organizing, but also the ways in which institutions like the legal defense fund need to be fortified in order to ensure that there are checks on our society when they face their darkest moments as we did and as we still are facing now. So her legacy will be one of transformation and fortification. And that is the legacy that I plan to build on with the wonderful staff and team that we have here at the legal defense fund. And there's so many lessons that I've learned in the nearly 9 years that she and I have been partnering together here at the legal defense fund. But the takeaway really is to be is to be unrelenting. And unapologetic about our commitment and dedication to equality and justice. That those are just causes for which we hold no shame and in fact great pride. And great passion for advancing on behalf of black communities and on behalf of our democracy as a whole.

"The positions for which they've been elected. I have said that the names of the women who have been mentioned as potential nominees to the Supreme Court are, there are more qualified than a lot of the people who were nominated before them and certainly who could be nominated after them. But one of the names that's been mentioned as a potential nominee is Cheryl and Eiffel, who currently runs the NAACP legal defense and educational fund for about another month. Until you succeed her, but talk about the significance of a black woman, no matter who is chosen, sitting on the high court. Well, it will be something that I think will be a game changer in terms of how we understand the law and its impact on a segment of society that doesn't often get its day in court. It doesn't often have its voice heard. And that is the segment of black women who fuel this country and so many ways who are on the front lines defending our democracy, putting their bodies on the line and compromising themselves in many ways to ensure that we uphold our constitutional ideals. We're talking about black women who suffer a significant wage gap in the economy. Black women who are becoming incarcerated at an increasingly rapid rate. And black women who are at the margins of society and so many ways. We will now have someone on the court who has some sense of what any one of those experiences might be. And whether they've personally experienced it, observed it, have a relatives who may have those experiences or just having been and being a member of that broader community makes them more attuned to those conditions. And I look forward to seeing that perspective born out in the decisions that are made in the colloquy among the justices on the court and to influence how we interpret laws that will affect black women all women and other marginalized groups in our society. Well, the LDF play a role in helping to shepherd the eventual nominee through the process. Well, the legal defense fund has been actively involved in judicial dominations for decades. We take this very seriously as you might imagine as an organization whose trade is to litigate in addition to our many other advocacy tools, we care deeply about the composition of the Supreme Court and deeply about the composition of all of our federal courts and state courts. We have advocated vigorously for more diversity on the court, diversity, not only of race and ethnicity, but of professional background, and I have to say we're quite pleased to see the judiciary diversifying rapidly under President Biden's leadership. However, I will say that in this process, we will be playing close attention to how this nominee is vetted and shepherded through the process. We will not stand by and allow a nominee to be disrespected or disregarded and appropriately any nominees should be subject to the scrutiny that any other justice would be subject to. We always often write a report and dig deep into the records of any nominee for the Supreme Court and we will do just the same for this nominee. However, this nominee must be treated with the same respect and the same fairness that any nominee for the Supreme Court would be. And that is something that we will be paying close attention to. What do you say to those people who might, as with the senator Kennedy comment where it doesn't like flash bright red doesn't have all the key words that get people to think, ah, sexism, racism. What do you say to folks who will hear? Because you and I both know we are going to hear some very coded thinly veiled racist things, sexist things, misogynistic things about the nominee. What do you say to folks to prepare them for things that might not to them be obvious in the moment? Well, what I want to say first and foremost is that the media has a very significant responsibility in this. The media has an obligation to point out those subtleties to disrobe what our cloaked offenses and assumptions and presumptions about this nominee that might be unfair and that might tilt the process in a way that compromises what should be an out of the appropriate outcome. So the media to me is first and foremost responsible and translating some of this for the public. And of course, organizations like the legal defense fund who are out there talking about the way in which the court is critically important as a third arm of our government that any process that leads to the confirmation of a justice must be free and fair of bias and prejudice and we will, as I said, be paying close attention to how this process unfolds. And this administration also has an obligation to protect its nominee and to make sure that that nominee is treated fairly. So there are a lot of ways in which we can call it out in ways in which we can make it more difficult for those types of assaults or missives to land or have any effect. But the first, the first way to do that is to name it and unveil it for what it is and not let it be misinterpreted by anyone by any member of the public who may not fully appreciate some of the subtleties of the process. Switch gears here because this month marks ten years since the death of Trayvon Martin. Talk about the impact of his death and the Black Lives Matter movement sparked by it. His death and so many others have fueled a movement that I think has been one of the most transformative movements of our generation. It's been a catalyst for uprisings and an outpouring of action and emotion, not just in this country, but across the globe. And it is still what I think is going to fuel what I know will be a re envisioning of public safety in this country and a rededication to core principles of what it means to be an American and to uphold the ideals of this country that have never been completely fulfilled. I think seeing that type of injustice up close, seeing the killing of young black children indiscriminately by law enforcement by would be law enforcement vigilantes. Those who want to take the law into their own hands, those are instances where racism just can't be denied. Where the denigration of black humanity and black dignity is something that you simply can not turn away from. That is why we saw so many people pouring into the streets in 2020 when we saw the heinous murder and callous murder of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis. And that I believe is something that is talking to the hearts and the core of our American public and saying, we will take no more of this. Of course, there have been divisions since it's a complicated issue.

"Miss Nelson, welcome to capehart on Washington Post live. Thank you, Jonathan. It's a wonderful to see you. So, as we know, February is black history month, black women are the foundation of that history, American history. Who are the women who inspired you? There are so many women that have inspired me throughout my life and throughout my career. First and foremost, my mother, she is The Rock upon which I stand and I love her dearly and she has been an inspiration throughout my life. But there are so many professional women so many women lawyers that I admire and look up to, I'd say that among the many are, of course, Constance baker Motley, who is in the iconography of what it means to be an incredibly zealous and brilliant advocate, fearless, relentless, and committed to the cause of equal justice and civil rights. She also is one of the first female lawyers at the NAACP legal defense and educational fund. She was one of the architects of Brown versus education, which as you know, dismantled American apartheid. And she was a mother. She was a community member. She was a second first generation second generation immigrant. She checked so many different boxes in terms of what it means to be an American and what it means to be a leader in this country. And she is one of the women that I admire greatly. But I could probably go on and on about millions of others that I do as well. Well, let's keep talking about her because tamiko Brown nagin, author of the new book, civil rights queen, Constance baker Motley and the struggle for equality. Recently told Washington Post live quote, historical significance and leadership are essentially coded mail. Talk about the impact that's had on recognition of the contributions of black women in our history. I think one of the easiest ways to point to the limitations that have been placed on black women is the fact that we still have not yet had a black woman as a Supreme Court Justice. And you have extraordinarily qualified people like Constance baker Motley, who was a federal district court judge. In fact, the very first black woman to become a federal district court judge. But was not elevated as she should have been based on her record based on her experience based on her enormous potential to be one of the most excellent jurists that this country has ever known. And that glass ceiling that is doubly thick for black women is something that I'm acutely aware of in the profession still. And it's a loss for this country not to have the best and the brightest persons available for any and all positions in this country. Black women have been shut out of those positions for too long. Causes baker Motley was a trailblazer, but we're talking about decades ago. And the numbers of firsts that are still happening today are far too many. Well, let's talk about why that glass ceiling is doubly thick. Maybe you've Tripoli thick for black women. You've said black women quote simultaneously endure entrenched racism and sexism, the compounding effects of which often mean that their experiences of violence and racism are suppressed or overlooked. Now that we're about to see a black woman named nominated to the Supreme Court, talk about how that entrenched racism and sexism will bear itself out in that instance. Well, I think we can all be optimistic and hopeful that it won't be the unfortunate display that we've seen in the Senate with respect to other nominees, but we are bracing ourselves for this to be a significant interrogation of the many qualified nominees that might become the final nominee of this White House. I am certain that we will see sexism. We will see racism. We will see the intersection of those two in the questioning and the doubts about qualifications. But what has been wonderful is looking at the numerous lists of people that would be overqualified as some have said, to be on the Supreme Court. And so we're ready for that conversation. We're ready for that battle, and we're ready to point out and call out those instances where black women are being subject to a different standard or being interrogated in ways that are inappropriate or where assumptions are made about their capacity that are unfounded and unfair. And I'm just. You know, speaking of that, I was just trying to find the full quote from senator John Kennedy. He was a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, somebody who will have a vote in whether the nominee gets voted out of committee and he said he had two concerns, the first one he mentioned was I want a nominee who knows a law book from a j.crew catalog. Now, in that statement, there's race isn't mentioned sex isn't mentioned. But I know in my gut what he's talking about. Talk about how assuming you also find that offensive, why is that offensive? It is deeply offensive, and it calls into question his ability to be an objective member of the Senate to properly advise and consent on whether a future nominee is in fact qualified and appropriate. That is laden with assumptions about gender and sex and capacity and frivolity that is just embedded in that statement. It is deeply concerning that he would feel that he has licensed to make that statement an advance of vetting a nominee. And I think we need to pay close attention and begin to hold elected officials accountable when they make statements that reveal that they are perhaps incapable themselves of.

"The bills and getting many of our admits pass with version. That ultimately was not adopted but would have been much better if it had been adopted so it goes on and on the number of activities we had with the different communities different faith groups whether it was christian churches are our synagogues are moss. We had Religious people from all over that would be there with us and we continue to do that even since the regular session. We had rally two weeks ago. In austin with the league of women voters texas impact and league of united latin american citizens trying to continue to bring attention. And we're working with ministers now to try to work together different sermons or what have you citing scripture on one of the rabbis. It's such a tremendous job. I wanted to reach out to a some of the christian ministers to get them to do the same thing and so they're trying to put that together in terms of how we get into the church houses and start influencing people that can make a difference. Because you know we're in a different world now. It's not like it was when thurgood marshall and charles hamilton. Houston felt those battles. We're talking right now to people who really don't care i with martin luther king new and thurgood marcin. Those guys is that he might be conservative but those a certain way to reach many of the folks who were in power that time. We're in a different date now. People are indeed movement politicians movement judges. So right or wrong has no moment in quotient. The only thing that matters is whether or not you continue in office and so we have to look for those levers to try to move people so we try to make sure that we're sophisticated. And so that. The limited time and resources that we have and actions that we can take because we're all limited because of our numbers and we try to do that strategically so that we can try them a move the ball and try to get people who can notes the decision makers Texas you said something really prophetic earlier. Because we really are the ground zero right now and not because i'm trying to be protected. I wish we weren't rounds of bieber honest with you because of our population numbers Texas was forty nine point. Four percent of his adult population in two thousand ten were african american and latino and that number has grown eighty percent of texas growth is black brown and asian has since two thousand ten so we're looking at fears of a majority minority population and so that more than the trump lie is at is. What's at the root of what's occurring in texas people trying to make sure that black and brown people and not able to share power and so they're coming up with all kinds of different ideas and initiatives the the laws that were this pastime where extremely well thought out there were thought out Think tanks with a lot of money behind them and they sought ways and found ways to undermine voter efforts for people who look like us who think like us to start from the very beginning from vote registration. Go all the way through high. You actually count ballots You know it was so incredible that they had things that were actually included in the bill. That came out of the the committee that was conference committee of the senate and the house. After the past different versions. They came up with twenty pages of new laws and think about that twenty new laws and then once it's revealed the violence. The trump law allow a judge in space of his own whim to make a decision to change the outcome of an election. Everyone says well. We didn't put it in there when we when they destroyed soles to the polls They said well. We don't know how that have so as pretty amazing to me that you've got twenty pages of new legislation and that they were trying to force the democrat democrats to vote on and they didn't even know i got in there while the so important the way you try to make the democrats vote on it. Yeah yeah so on wednesday state. Legislators from around the country came to dc in support of the texas state. Legislators who left the state to prevent corum. And i believe friday is the thirty day in special session. So this thing won't get through. But i believe the governor is still threatening avenue still threatening to call one special session after another correct until this is until he's to push this voter suppression legislation through correct will pushed it through. But that's his plan. And so i need to be succesion and so i'm hoping one thing that we've the house members have been candidate leaders on this because they're the ones who broke warm but the same law applies in the senate. And so what. I'm hoping is that the senators We need to more democratic senators to break ranks nine. Did their thirteen. It takes eleven to break warm in the senate so we're hoping that somehow the democratic senators can break rank this time so you don't have so much own the house members because i think what the leadership in texas feels is that all they need to do is keep having special session after special session and they'll break the backs of the democrat legislated. Because how long can you stay out. How expensive is and how much is a personal cost. You your family your business. So i think that. That's what's actually being done now. But i i think that we we have some potential. We just need to put together efforts to try to to get two of those other four senators to decide. They're going to break ranks. So what's the hesitation in terms of breaking rates. Well i don't know. I think like there's one on name that i really have. Utmost confidence in ages thinks she work within the system doesn't see the wisdom but he's been one of the ones it's passed the much progressive legislation has always been there when you need him so We're just gonna have to try to come at him in a different way. And i think others don't have the breach of a relationship with the lieutenant. Governor lieutenant governors most powerful person in texas. Lieutenant governor knows how wheel power iran trump's campaign here in texas in thank. You even does things that really forces they that forces the governor's hand. I think the governor understands that the real power with the lieutenant governor and he understands that and so that's that's why the the senate has been large and in charge yet more.

But you don't go and give an interview to the media for the national media if you know that you didn't have a right to vote so the man just made a mistake with egas indicted and fed on a hundred thousand dollars cash bail now then making examples out of the lives of people so that that does not vote will wear. They're all kinds of impediments to disabled voters. Where you Limit how individuals can provide assistance to disabled voters clearly violating federal law. Where you have you require the disabled voter to disclose various information about them and their disability their problem with areas you and even hit the person that assists the voter against voter because you try to have them independently answer. What the reason that the need is for them to have someone to support them so they actually which Turn france against each other's and it's just a it's very nasty you go to the early voting issue and the data shows that the early voting in in the late hours of the night and late in the evening of black and brown people may because of the jobs we have daytime it's going to have disproportionate impact on black and brown people. You look at the issue of the drive thru voting. That was legal this last time. And it's women who took the greatest advantage of that so it's gonna have a disparate impact against women you look at the issues relating to all the lists that are gonna be created for people because of assisting folks at voting are an impediment and you provide that information people start investigating and maybe bringing up the phrase investigations in one of the biggest things. That haven't mentioned that. Probably should've mentioned even i in we've had a real problem with poll-watchers and texas texas poll-watcher groups have been so hostile towards african american that they're becoming poplar around the country and they're rian imported in brought to train people in other countries. And you know what are the interesting things if you look at that. Common cause video. That was leaked were Someone for common cause actually take a training session for republican poll-watchers in harris county and it was truly biased in bigoted degree to me. They didn't use the word they didn't use the a it in refer to race. But when you start talking about the balance down here in problem that people down at willow avenue church you know. You need to be tough people. We were trying to get a brigade. We don't have a problem and then the white is a good neighborhood. These are good people. We don't need you here. We need you down here. You look at codes like that you understand the dynamic and we had let me tell you some of the things we had we had. We had poll-watchers that was so bold. Enduring the pandemic. They refused to wear mass and they would. They would come up to every black and brown vote they would let white voters just go. They'd walk up to the black and brown vote and get close to your personal space and you don't have on. The mass in people in the word gets out and all that that helps to suppress vote and this new law makes it clear that that they can always do that. Because it says The laws that they at they ran away from this time said the poll-watcher had right to be close enough to see and hear in. So that's up to them and their own determination and they. They took the authority waiting election judges in texas. The law has always been that election. Judges have the same power of district judge in the precincts and enormous power. Changed that where they don't have power all they do. Now have power to warn and then call the police Own poll-watchers oppo. You can do whatever they want and caused whatever damage but when you add all these things together with poll-watchers being able to do what they won't do what they wish and go up and breathe on people They When you add the time because if they start questioning people in their ballots at at takes more time you gonna cause for elections to have long lines and take a whole lot more time for people to get through an election line. That's another voter suppression tactic. that's being employed so it goes on and on the bill that came to the conference committee during the regular session that allow for judges to the tone election. That's not in the law that was propounded. The laws ever been discussed in special session but they did have a provision that would allow people just to think if you did something wrong in the campaign. Even if you want to come out and sue you or sue somebody who's working on your campaign and file individuals suits that you have to pay for individually so you have to pay your legal representation and it creates a cause of action against you and so you can have losing candidates going to sue winning candidates all the time so it'll do creates nonsense. It'll make people discourage people from being involved. Yeah yeah yeah more. Mvp after this message. So what is next in terms of the n. w. c. p. strategy The special session obviously ends. This weekend is end up p directly involved in trying to get the to other senators. You need to take some pressure off the house members. What what's next for you all reached out to Some of the house members gonna reach out to some of the senators and try to see what we can do with that. We're working on a program with national. Now where a nationalist counterpart partnered with legislative blackhawks has we've partnered with before. We kinda wanted to see that happen and what we're trying to do is with greater urgency put together a campaign that can lead to joe mansion actually agreeing to some circumstance that will allow us to get a bill passed. That will make a difference in. Stop some of these things from happening and you know. We need to make sure that too many people talking about we need to perfect meal we need. Hr one but you know hr one. Who's great does not a provision that there was that i have a problem with but we need to we need to the dams gonna burst so it isn't that we need to get the whole brigade and we need to do. We can't stop that down from bursting right. And so whatever will measure we can get whether it's a pre clearance measure preventing Our state law preventing legislatures from being able to overturn. The election of voters are being able to take over Election apparatus is like they've done doing in georgia. You know. i think those kind of things can go a long ways so That seems to be the effort that we need to work on. And so we need to make this a problem where we get white america to come out or because You know i think rabbi neil gamaa said at one of our conferences together that my brother's problem is my problems. Say look that's the we need to get the white suburban voters. We need to get moderate conservative voters. Who maybe don't agree on some policy issues but who do believe in the fundamental right of individuals of all colors should be able to vote in this country because they want further democracy. And so what. We're trying to do with the national. Nwc and the blackhawks try to reach out to individuals who haven't been part of this discussion because in one thing that When you get older you can learn people. Generally speaking don't make decisions because of what's right and wrong. They make decision because what's in their personal interests. And i think what's at stake years ready to democracy in this country. I think people like in cherishes democracy. I think there are some really incorrigible. Folks That are on the other side. Probably only about thirty four percent of that group. Who would like to see us even move away from a democracy because they fear black and brown Voters so much With most other folks even at support them don't really understand the import what they're doing and so we need to really try to educate people that look guys you go and beat us at the ballot box but don't try to change the rules of the game. Two words unfair where you went every time but you know the laws in texas will propose over. The summer are so effective and so comprehensive that the nineteen twenty-three legislature that that passed a law at black people could vote in the democratic primary. Which on the primary mattered at the time that legislature would be proud of these laws because far and they really and i heard this cheney earlier today say that she didn't think that there was a racial motivation behind these bills and so people like that we might be able to talk with. We need to somehow be able to reach. Say no we need to sit down with you. President cheney because Maybe because of the people you talked to what information you have that's what she believes. Let me show you the information because this is really more about democracy than anything else and you know if it goes to that. We're not gonna have the best kind of society live in and it's not going to be The kind of society that that is good for all of us. And so i think is a negative in for white eagle the same. It is for black and brown people and we continue to Is continuing ally. And ultimately i mean the be practical about it. The things we vote for things. We of fight for as african americans and other people's color in a long run ten help them to winning when admitted that So you know. I mean as you i mean people like vomiting but but he likes to this country that came from us right. Yeah yep yep and the contributions we may so Folks this is great. Work at the texas state conferences. Knowing gary bledsoe was always doing gary when get you any more often to keep us updated So so then special sessions last thirty days that in this weekend probably call another one. Some law may yet. Yeah so they'll they'll keep doing this so there are a lot of different things up in air and this is a serious folk. I mean the people weren't the governor wants to lock up dude elected state. Legislator was house numbers for trying to prevent a bill. That will keep us from voting. I mean that's i mean how much traffic we've gotten. We've got a clean environment. Gary with it consequences for the economy. They they seem to think that they could do that in consequences with their base or anyone else but it's it's you know we have to be able to vote. We have to show people that we will not tolerate that. And people even show an inkling or a smidgen of having that type of mentality can be done away with voted out of office now causes take some of the other side like you see this changing world however now her own father referred himself as darth vader so these folks are worse than than that now. What can be worse than darth vader. So this is a this is a fight. We're in the end. Acp's always in with us in forests and we're thankful to the president of texas sleep brother gear but so gary fodder reggio nothing better to take.

"Plane from gary bledsoe. I saw gear bless zone. He was telling me about show mark so we always appreciate him. Gary welcome back to make a plane brother. How are you oh pretty good. Mark always glad to be here. And you know. I've always been a continued be. What are your biggest fads. So i then named thanking better thank you so tell us about the state conference. Of course a gary is an activist attorneys. Will everyone a scholar in. Tj jellab festive. Tell us would what the state conferences is doing how it's taking on the issues with texas state legislature while we worked very closely with the texas legislature blackhawks during the session. We went to the new leadership. There nicole collier an rentals. They have a really good insight and they have a beautiful attitude towards partnering with other african american organization so we work very closely with them. We work very close. With the league of women voters league of united latin american citizens and we did many events from taking out full page ads and and newspapers to coordinating individuals to show up and testify against the bills to rewriting the bills and getting many of our admits pass with version. That ultimately was not adopted but would have been much better if it had been adopted so it goes on and on the number of activities we had with the different communities different faith groups whether it was christian churches are our synagogues are moss. We had Religious people from all over that would be there with us and we continue to do that even since the regular session. We had rally two weeks ago. In austin with the league of women voters texas impact and league of united latin american citizens trying to continue to bring attention. And we're working with ministers now to try to work together different sermons or what have you citing scripture on one of the rabbis. It's such a tremendous job. I wanted to reach out to a some of the christian ministers to get them to do the same thing and so they're trying to put that together in terms of how we get into the church houses and start influencing people that can make a difference. Because you know we're in a different world now. It's not like it was when thurgood marshall and charles hamilton. Houston felt those battles. We're talking right now to people who really don't care i with martin luther king new and thurgood marcin. Those guys is that he might be conservative but those a certain way to reach many of the folks who were in power that time. We're in a different date now. People are indeed movement politicians movement judges. So right or wrong has no moment in quotient. The only thing that matters is whether or not you continue in office and so we have to look for those levers to try to move people so we try to make sure that we're sophisticated. And so that. The limited time and resources that we have and actions that we can take because we're all limited because of our numbers and we try to do that strategically so that we can try them a move the ball and try to get people who can notes the decision makers Texas you said something really prophetic earlier. Because we really are the ground zero right now and not because i'm trying to be protected. I wish we weren't rounds of bieber honest with you because of our population numbers Texas was forty nine point. Four percent of his adult population in two thousand ten were african american and latino and that number has grown eighty percent of texas growth is black brown and asian has since two thousand ten so we're looking at fears of a majority minority population and so that more than the trump lie is at is. What's at the root of what's occurring in texas people trying to make sure that black and brown people and not able to share power and so they're coming up with all kinds of different ideas and initiatives the the laws that were this pastime where extremely well thought out there were thought out Think tanks with a lot of money behind them and they sought ways and found ways to undermine voter efforts for people who look like us who think like us to start from the very beginning from vote registration. Go all the way through high. You actually count ballots You know it was so incredible that they had things that were actually included in the bill. That came out of the the committee that was conference committee of the senate and the house. After the past different versions. They came up with twenty pages of new laws and think about that twenty new laws and then once it's revealed the violence. The trump law allow a judge in space of his own whim to make a decision to change the outcome of an election. Everyone says well. We didn't put it in there when we when they destroyed soles to the polls They said well. We don't know how that have so as pretty amazing to me that you've got twenty pages of new legislation and that they were trying to force the democrat democrats to vote on and they didn't even know i got in there while the so important the way you try to make the democrats vote on it. Yeah yeah so on wednesday state. Legislators from around the country came to dc in support of the texas state. Legislators who left the state to prevent corum. And i believe friday is the thirty day in special session. So this thing won't get through. But i believe the governor is still threatening avenue still threatening to call one special session after another correct until this is until he's to push this voter suppression legislation through correct will pushed it through. But that's his plan. And so i need to be succesion and so i'm hoping one thing that we've the house members have been candidate leaders on this because they're the ones who broke warm but the same law applies in the senate. And so what. I'm hoping is that the senators We need to more democratic senators to break ranks nine. Did their thirteen. It takes eleven to break warm in the senate so we're hoping that somehow the democratic senators can break rank this time so you don't have so much own the house members because i think what the leadership in texas feels is that all they need to do is keep having special session after special session and they'll break the backs of the democrat legislated. Because how long can you stay out. How expensive is and how much is a personal cost. You your family your business. So i think that. That's what's actually being done now. But i i think that we we have some potential. We just need to put together efforts to try to to get two of those other four senators to decide. They're going to break ranks. So what's the hesitation in terms of breaking rates. Well i don't know. I think like there's one on name that i really have. Utmost confidence in ages thinks she work within the system doesn't see the wisdom but he's been one of the ones it's passed the much progressive legislation has always been there when you need him so We're just gonna have to try to come at him in a different way. And i think others don't have the breach of a relationship with the lieutenant. Governor lieutenant governors most powerful person in texas. Lieutenant governor knows how wheel power iran trump's campaign here in texas in thank. You even does things that really forces they that forces the governor's hand. I think the governor understands that the real power with the lieutenant governor and he understands that and so that's that's why the the senate has been large and in charge yet more.
