"That's kind of like Daniel's world right now. He felt pushed to choose a team like it or not, these air his new people, he doesn't think like them exactly. But he feels more aligned with these Chinese nationalists on this boat waving at the police, then with the angry protesters gang up on them. Even if those protesters ultimately want the same thing he does to preserve their freedoms in Hong Kong, sitting on the upper deck of the Star Ferry, Thiss was actually the first time Daniel had ever sung the national anthem in public, he told me later. He was surprised to find that he felt something. Diane You talked to Daniel last week with the passing of the national security while he blames the protesters for killing the Hong Kong that he cherished but says he accepts it as the only viable future. One of the first things by the way that he did when he found out about the law passing was changed his Facebook profile back to his real name. Now he feels protected from the mob for nine months later. So, as we said China's new National.

The Racial Justice Reckoning Over Sports Team Names Is Spreading

"Trump Trump weighed weighed in in this this week week on on the the Washington Washington NFL NFL team team and and the the Cleveland Cleveland Indians Indians baseball baseball team. team. Considering Considering changing changing their their names, names, names that native Americans have long said are racist. Both franchises announced they're reviewing their names and changes maybe coming before. 2020 NFL and Major League Baseball season's begin perspectives producer ABC is Eric Mollo has more with America In the midst of a reckoning over racial inequality. More athletes are continuing to speak out across the sports world. By noon, Stanford was right. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Cuyler Murray announcing he'll be taking any during the playing of the national anthem this year, one of several players pledging to stand in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who knelt during the playing of the national anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice. Erica. Over the past week, There's been another reckoning in sports, whether to change team names or logos that contain Native American emblems. In stereotypes. There is time to Move for Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians announced they're considering changing the team's name manager Terry Francona feels now is an appropriate time for change Older. We're never trying to be disrespectful. I still feel that way, but I don't think that's a good enough answer. Today. The announcement comes a little over a year after Cleveland removed its chief Wahoo logo, a cartoonish caricature of a native American man long considered racist. It also came shortly after the announcement at Washington's NFL franchises weighing whether to change its team name, which is widely regarded as a racial slur. Julian Brave Noise Cat contributes to ESPN is the undefeated He writes that the team name references Native American skin color. In the bloody scouts of indigenous People taken his bounty by white colonists. If a group of people are speaking out about the racism of a team logo, it's It's quite the thing to go and claim that actually know you are honoring them, and it's hard for me to imagine the same thing happening for another racial group in the United States. Team owner Dan Snyder has bound for years. He never changed the name. Saying the term actually embodies honor, respect and pride. Protesters and advocacy groups have called for change for decades. But on ly in the face of mounting economic pressure did Snyder finally announced they're reconsidering investors with major sponsors from Pepsi. FedEx in Nike sent letters asking the companies to terminate their relationship with Washington unless it agreed to a name change, which you know kind of exciting on the one hand, but the reality it reveals about the power of capital. In our culture and society is a little bit of a downer for me. But those two franchises don't stand alone. A world without native mascots is the ideal world. Nick Marin is a member of this a pony tribe in a staff writer for the New Republic any kind of imagery like that and specifically as it relates to native people, because we have been made invisible, forcibly the idea that we would You get rid of the walking Jim NFL team and keep the Kansas City Chiefs It speaks a certain hollowness that I think this kind of corporate social justice campaigns often involve the Kansas City Chiefs. Atlanta Braves in Chicago Blackhawks are among professional franchises that continue to employ Native American imagery on their jerseys in their team names and in cheers by fans has become a very normalized thing, which I think is common place with a lot of systems and forms of institution. Oppression. These things we don't think of them in the moment as being particularly egregious because they've become so normalized in society. Those franchises aren't following the lead of Washington in Cleveland. None of them announce name changes, though Atlanta is reportedly considering no longer allowing the Tomahawk chop chance at games, and the Blackhawks went on to say that their team name and logo symbolizes an important native American figure. And they aren't moving toward formal change. It reduces you to a caricature there, 570 plus tribal nations. That's 570 plus tribal cultures. Any kind of idea that, like there is one kind of Indian is very reductionist kind of view of US. President Trump even weighed in this week via Twitter, saying the names of Washington's in Cleveland's teams Signify strength and not weakness, and they're merely considering the change to be politically correct. The president's statement in the very decisions of these franchises do raise questions isn't important to distinguish between the offensiveness of each individual team name, and is any of this iconography, actually honor or respect the Native Americans? Or in same team names and logos on our native people. Is that merely perpetuating cultural appropriation and the use of stereotypical Native American imagery, Martin says. It's not that slippery of a slope. If you're saying our mascot, our team name is not as racist as Washington NFL team still an admission that it is races, Washington's head coach, Ron Rivera, who is one of four minority head coaches in the NFL, told The Washington Post. It would be awesome if the team changed its name. In the National Congress of American Indians have long opposed the use of Native American stereotypical imagery in professional sports. As professional sports franchises are choosing to reexamine these issues in the midst of America's reckoning over race relations, they're faced with a new choice. Well, economic pressures determine if they choose to rename their teams or will they listen to decades long calls from Native American advocacy groups to eliminate the use of these emblems of the only reasons happening so swiftly is because their this is something that native people years of ground Work into and so what this moment kind of larger cultural reckoning has become. It's just kind of an impetus to say Okay, Now is the time to finally get rid of these things.

Fresh update on "national anthem" discussed on The Sunday Show

"Of funny when you think about it all these people up so early on their day off getting on a boat to sing the national anthem together. It's also a little dark because there's a real threat of violence against people who don't support the protest one of these flag parties two weeks ago at a mall. Devolved into a brawl in protesters showed up, people on both sides got beat up. So going out on a ferry to shout pro China slogans is strategic Once you're on the boat out at sea, you ought to be safe from a counter protest. As one guy put it. Well, we've been living in terror for the last three months because the people on the other side of the riders they're really good at terrorizing tactics they make you feel that you should be afraid of speaking up and speaking out against them because they're so organized. And the terminal. Everyone gathers in a semi circle, holding special holiday issues of the China daily and singing the Chinese national anthem together. It's a little shaky. The guy leading it told me. He just learned the words a couple weeks ago. Most of the people here best as I can tell, are.

Most content providers out there just trying to sort of make the most of these sort of. Challenging Times of trying to secure people in trying to find the time in the space to record, so we are really excited and and especially grateful that ma'am. Louis was able to take the time out of his demanding busy schedule to be with us on, so thank you again as an I. Echo, everything, immerse, said not growing up in a small town so much, but you were also sort of NBA hero of mine. I came of age in the nineties when I came of age I.

Maybe tell us about you know Chris Jackson and his life, and you know in and you growing up in the south, and in those experiences were like yeah, and I'm really really interested in hearing first time you touch the basketball, and when you really felt at home with the ball in your hand, and all those things I'm going gonNA. I'm going to be jumping in and asking questions because as you can see, I'm pretty exciting go. Numb note will your Ford. Remind me of missing anything Actually I. Can you want to? Start with that verse. First Time. Just the basketball really was. I was nineteen years old Nights to play Vassallo. My brothers Some reason always ended up playing with. Older older guys in now. When I look back I, said you know that's that was a huge plus for me, because those are the guys issue are fast strong when you finally get to your age group. It becomes easy play. John Age because you've been playing with older gasps. But I remember one day I was outside. Central Elementary. In I was playing game twenty one and this lady. Her real name is miss. Cookie or miss asa letter. What we call him is cooking and she was strong African American women like she. She didn't man screaming at you getting on your back in those days, even spanky. At all be playing and she said listen, she said come in Chris come in. Of course you go over there and I went over there, she said listen try out. I didn't even know that right next to me in the gym. It would try elementary. Right. Of Fourth Great in. I said Miss you'RE GONNA have to ask my mother, she said. Don't worry about it just going out. And because she saw something in me when I was playing I win in. Playing Street Ball I didn't know anything about organized while I. Mean I'm taking it driven through people and I'm making my shots. Coach added me listed son. You, gotTa pass the ball. And make a long story short. My first game in elementary school I remember. This guy named Aaron Ross. I'm nervous. Right man would i. do you follow me? By the end of the game. Of the game coach was giving me ISOS telling him get out my way. I ended up with twenty one points, my first game, and just to see the crowd, and the excitement man I was like man I love this atmosphere. is feels especially a little. You a black kid coming out of the ghetto. You know, mother you. Know File Right A. Grown up in poverty surrounded by drug addiction, mother had an eighth grade education. So you're looking at something, and you get this attention from a skill that you have. And now it's dawning on you the May. This could be something. Right. This could be a way out and so that was like really for me the beginning. That moment when they were screaming and yelling. And it wasn't it wasn't. It wasn't like pure. Not like. Your College College Teammate Shaquille. It wasn't like you were this massive. You know massive Guy Hulking Guy. You're probably based.

We will end the show today with an interview that I did this month about that law with Jennifer who you heard in the first half of the show. Now we have arrived at Act three of our program factory, a slow boat to China. What about all the people living in Hong Kong who have no problem with China who like China? Is a lot of them and they hold their own demonstrations. Which are pretty small. Black parties were flash mob show up malls and wave Chinese flags and seeing the Chinese national anthem and the big day to celebrate. China normally would be October 1st National Day. The anniversary of the Communist Party founding the modern Chinese state. And this year is gonna be a big one. It was the 70th anniversary. And the people who support mainland China were kind of resentful because this day was supposed to be this huge holiday for them. But anticipating massive protests, the city shut down Fireworks are cancelled. Trains weren't running. Almost all the malls were going to be closed. The protesters had ruined the day again. So in defiance, the pro China people organized an anthem singing party for the morning of the first. Our co worker, Diane will went Party took place at 8 30 in the morning on a boat.

"Or almost zero, he said light point zero zero one percent of people that are under the age of forty five.

I can't believe that I forgot about it while we're talking about cabinet because it's football so. July second July second the NFL. Announce Oh. Yeah that they are going to play. Before the national anthem, the Black National Anthem what the crap is a black national anthem and then I love people who write and they're like. You uneducated racist bigot. The black national anthem has been around since the nineteen hundreds, and it's lift every voice and sing. and my response to that is I. Don't give a crap if it's a real song or not, it's not a black. A black national anthem is not a real thing. Right thing is it's devices by nature. It is lagging Lee Racist National Anthem is national. It is not only making like white enemies. You're making Mexican enemies. You're making Asian and everybody else. Their own their own nationally. Wants her own well probably? The only one. Like that's not, that's where I got so upset. That's not the national. The national anthem like I said is for I. Get respect I get so much pride and get more angry than Graham over this because he's so modest about his service, but like no, that is. I wash them. Link arms and arms. Going in fighting for this amazing country, and then for you to just disgrace all that and just say no. That's not good into. This our freedom. This is all of us, and so to do that is just divisive by nature in and of itself, and it's not about that. We don't respect your culture or that. That's not a wonderful song. It is about that is not our national anthem and people are like will. Why shouldn't we have a black national anthem? Why should not racist? Why would you have a problem?

"Huge CNN thought enough of him to hire him as basically a political consultant. To be available when social issues came to the floor specifically in the world of sports. How did Malcolm Jenkins not making onto CNN this week? That boggles my mind because he was very adamant and out, spoken about critiquing and criticizing Drew Brees when Bree said what he did About. He will not disrespect a flag and basically what he called kneeling during the national anthem is disrespectful of the flag, which we've learned and we were contacting tried to explain it at the time. He didn't do a good job of it. But he certainly got his message across that he was making a A statement when he decided to kneel during the national anthem. So when Drew Brees said, I'm going to keep my hand on my heart and I'm going to continue to handle my the national anthem the way that I want to people crushed him. He took a ton of grief because of that, well would take you on, Jackson said, was or restated on his Instagram was Justus offensive. Now it wasn't as offensive to African Americans. But offensiveness offensive And I was pretty let down by the National Football League players in general. No, I'm talking about everybody, some in specific like Malcolm Jenkins, who has established himself as an outspoken individual. That they didn't come out with a statement and aura stance this week. I thought I was weak. I agree wholeheartedly with you. That's the thing that bothers me Most now did, Shawn. Came out with two explanations. Slant apologies. The 1st 1 wasn't quite good enough. So he came out with the 2nd 1 He has said that he is going to AA showed that he made a mistake by not Educating himself enough with what he was repatriating with the Louis Farrakhan speech. We'll see if he does on Julian Edelman to his credit, reached out and said. I invited. If you want Jackson to go me to a college Course museum, and then we'll go to an African American History Museum and we'll spend the day will have some very difficult conversations. Good for Julian elements on dish you in, Jackson said. It would be his pleasure to go with Julia Nadelman and have a day like that. So I think the Sean has has tried to pick up the pieces as best he can. I think the Eagles went a little soft on him by saying he's going to be penalized. They didn't really give any details of what the penalty is. They didn't even state that it would be a fine. Most people are assuming that it's a fine but they didn't even go so far as to give the details ofthe what the fine is. We're assuming that it's not going to include a suspension. It's surely not going to include his release from the organization. Legal's that painted into 1/4 a little bit because they had an incident like this seven years ago, when Riley Cooper and ex player with court using the N word at a concert on videotape. Couple of his high profile African American teammates came to his defense and said, We don't believe Riley's races. They were around him all the time. It's not him. He might have been drunk at the time. So the Eagles didn't act in that case, So it would have been tuft Act very harshly into DeJuan Jackson case, But they haven't even given out the details just yet. Ah, little bit of a message we can, you know. Speaking of the NFL, huh? Embarkation going to do just that talk football with this Next here on CBS.

Okay Tie, so yes lists talking Abou a tweet that has resurfaced from two thousand eleven during the Obama Administration where. He was like Happy Fourth July God. Bless everybody and it's amazing how how a flip flop like that can happen. So, let's talk about Colin Kaepernick for a minute. I have deemed him the worst American of our generation Colin Kaepernick, okay. Let's remind everyone because I do think it's important to remind people full on remind people who these people are. Colin Kaepernick was born in like Wisconsin. Okay, D- onto flack or Monto flack or something. It's one of those weird things in Wisconsin. Okay. He wasn't growing up and frigging Brooklyn. Stuff this constant, he was adopted by an all white family. Okay, supremacists all right He. He went to a good school. He did really well in school got into college all this other stuff which is great, that's that's awesome. That's the way it should be a millionaire. Okay Colin Kaepernick signed one hundred twenty five million dollar deal with the forty niners, and he got thirty one percent of that okay, because he ended up getting, let go, not because he knelt for the anthem because he sucked at quarterback ain't got benched. Okay, it happens all the time to making more money than white quarterbacks. His net worth still to this day is twenty million dollars. Okay, he's a multi millionaire. America sucks okay. He is a multi millionaire right. He trademarked his face. For a shampoo bottle. Okay, let's talk about this for a minute. He trade more his face for a shampoo bottle. Okay, the the problems. The problems I have is Colin. Kaepernick gave up everything. Even a 'cause he didn't give up. Give up anything back without the 'cause he would've been nobody because I didn't even know who he was. This happened and now he's a somebody, so we can't lose that fame, so it's just really frustrating. Count Them Up. What did he and that's that whole post was so fresh on my instagram just? Treat all y'all know that Graham served alongside every race fighting for this country. So how dare you, disgrace I was very roast. That African American slavery in America was the only slavery in the world. It's like Irish white slaves. Slavery has been going on since the beginning of time. Dude military. The military is the best remedy for this entire situation. I was having a conversation with somebody the other day, and I was like man Israeli. Forces are appealing more and more to me. Justice is you turn eighteen Bam three years dude blah, see later. Come back in three years when you're twenty one. Experience Okay, and here's why all right in Iraq okay. Yes, just like Elissa said there were people from all rounds of everything Hispanic Asian, black white, whatever and there are some people that I legitimately could not in stand man, and the military was very very very well known for Hey, man, if you got a problem with somebody, and they're not a higher rank than you or something like that you go, take the top off and you go around back and you handle what you got a handle, and then everything's fine, because at the end of the day you were there for a higher purpose in. America. Could use a little bit of that right. Hey, sometimes, we aren't GonNa like people sometimes you may have to go around back and handle some business, but by God at the end of the day. We're Americans shut. That's the problem. Though is all these all of these people I feel like either need to go overseas to any country that does not have it. We have like Africa or go serve or anything like that because it will. I feel like it would create that appreciation of realizing. Wow, we actually are very blessed, and we should actually be thankful. That doesn't mean that's not to negate. Things shouldn't be right like. Of course we don't agree with police brutality, but you see what I'm saying and that's frustrates me so bad. Is that these a lot of these celebrities and people haven't ever really been there? And, so they're just speaking for fame, and that's what's frustrating. Flags stands for it's like yeah, you can look at the history. I'm sorry, but then I had somebody would be like anybody that. Pays that much tribute to a flag should be checked for their mental health status anyway.

A Turning Point: Race Relations In Sports

"It has now been more than four weeks in George. Floyd was murdered nearly a month since we all watched him. Take his last breaths. It feels like so much is different, but real actionable change that takes time. Many who took to the streets in protests have now resumed their daily lives, so now seems appropriate to discuss how sport will handle affairs moving forward. As North American teams and Leagues Continue Their Return to play processes. It is vital that the conversations and promises made when the racial issue was hottest that they do not go away. In a few moments, we will welcome in our panel to discuss how that should happen, but first a look at how we got here in the first place. He will have color have been argued about beliefs, and that's not right. That's not right by any was standards. The point he was making gut twisted from the start. The beginning when Colin Kaepernick I made is public protests peacefully heap I sat on the bench during the national anthem to bring awareness. There's a lot of things that need to change once one specifically police brutality. There's people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. It was the summer of two thousand sixteen, when he bursts truly used his platform as an NFL quarterback to speak out against systemic racism by police in the weeks leading into that preseason payment. San Francisco capper Nick had watched. We all had. To white officers pinning down Alton Sterling. And pumping. into his chest and back. He saw the traffic stop in Minnesota when Philander Casteel was killed in front of his girlfriend in charge. And captured it could not understand how mental health therapist Charles Kinsey could be shot by police when he was lying on the ground with his arms up in the air, people of color have been targeted by police. Cops are getting paid leave. For killing people. That's not right. That's not right by anyone's standards. And yet from the beginning law in. pre-game gesture was misrepresented and downright manipulated. The Christ came that he was disrespecting the flag that it was a slap in the face to military personnel. But when active soldiers pointed out, they serve to provide their citizens with the freedom of speech that capture nick was exercising. That narrative quickly was quashed when army veterans who had been in battle, echoed that very sentiment out of national football league buildings team needs I would be disappointed if any of our players didn't stand up for the national anthem personally. I, look at that as a salute to the people who have paved the way for us. Our Organization believes that. You should. Respect the flag and so you'll save those individual decisions to expression show. On individual form. And that became the prevalent message. Don't do it here. Stick to sports. The underlying tone. How dare you protest without our approval we're. Do you get off? Colin Kaepernick criticizing anyone in another uniform. Right the men and women lead for this, I- scenic. First hand. For. Somebody do that to get paid millions of dollars. It's ridiculous. Cabinet remained undeterred. United States Army Bet. Nate! Boyer who did tours of duty in Iraq, and Afghanistan encouraged him to kneel and not sit. By, taking a knee voyeur told him you show your respect for fallen brothers that way. So capture nick did. And then more NFL players followed. And yet the public and political conversation in the US would not steer toward police brutality. No matter how much star athletes peacefully attempted to. And the leader in America's biggest chair. Amy Shirley Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners? When somebody disrespects our flag to say, get that son of a job appealed right now out each fire. I! Capture Nick became a source of division for standing up against injustice. He hasn't taken a snap since that twenty sixteen season. And at this year Super Bowl USA. Today's jared bell minced no words on why that is I. Think it's pretty obvious. He's been blackballed for Colin Kaepernick not to have a job is just. It's the worst look for the NFL. No conversation was more dominant inside NFL. Locker rooms that season than the Kapernick one teams are made up of players of all ages of all backgrounds of so many ethnicities. If you actually want to listen to different perspectives. If you're an athlete who would want to hear what your peers had to say, there would be no shortage of takes to soak in. But fundamentally the want would be to understand capper knicks fundamental point. After George Floyd one of the League's biggest stars reminded us that many still didn't I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Maybe that was the crossroads moment because the reaction to. It felt like something had changed almost as. That won't cut. It anymore drew. brees in the rest of the NFL were told right away, the new. Orleans quarterback came under fire. The players in the league had just about enough of the establishment silence. They had captured message. They were not gonNA. Let owners and Roger Goodell get away with it this time. Would have other Jewish Knowledge George if I was. I was George Void. Jewish. And say hi in. Regard. To me right. Breezes all pro receiver found Dallas's bruising runner and Houston's electrifying quarterback, and Kansas City Super Bowl Mvp. And Obi. And they all let you know. We. Condemn Racism and assistant. Matic oppression of black people. National League, admit wrong and silence our players from protesting. Also. Black lives matter black lives matter. Like loves. To Have Patrick Mahomes the next superstar the NFL. Front and center. That was massive. And the very next night the commissioner uttered the words you never imagined would happen. We the National Football League Immune. We were wrong for not listening NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League believe black lives matter. Progress. Probably a step forward. You want to believe so. The day after the commissioner changed his tune, breeze went to social media again. He'd already made his hollow apologies without actually saying sorry, and he finally seemed to be listening to what some teammates had to say, and after all of that even drew brees somewhat stood up to the president. It won't Change Donald Trump of course, but maybe it will make others think. Perhaps it will create more uncomfortable conversations to allow for a greater understanding among all of us. And at the very least it has given others throughout sport. To have the freedom to finally say their piece open believing they may at last be heard. Or country is in, trouble. Basic reason is race. You're seeing an example of future. That's fighting for you for you. Right now a fine for you got a grandfather that march legs. Dr King in the sixties. And he was amazing. You'll be proud to see us all. Got Pushing? Forward Doing Casey marched with his family. Members of Detroit's organization. An NBA coach using his voice. Over in Jacksonville Jaguars personnel were among the demonstrators. North Philly's finest. He walked. Kyle Lowery's we can. Priorities were set. This though. This is just the start. To silence of countless elites spoken loud. Until you see action from an, don't forget by the leaks themselves. We wonder what the real commitment to progress actually is. What capper protests was about from. The beginning can no longer be debated. And it is now crystal clear to all of us that no athlete should just shut up and dribble. Nelson Mandela famously said. Sport has the power to change the world. Since George, Floyd perhaps we have learned that change can come more from our sporting icons using their voice platform in pursuit for justice than any jumper were swing. Or goal or touched them. Stick to sports. Sure let's stick to sports bettering the world in a new way. Let's start hearing the real message now. And most of all, let's not get the words and actions like Hafer. Knicks twisted. When he tried to begin the real conversation. Before US AGO!

"Now that the NFL has accepted? Accepted at least at the surface, how NFL players choose to protest police, brutality and racial inequality bird. You see this going essentially I. Guess the question is what's the next step to keep the momentum of this movement going while they have it well in terms of how players are GonNa? Protest protest has to be defiant in some way to be some level of disobedience associated with it and now the Dell. Dell has kinda like okay'd the action of kneeling or just protesting in general like we're getting into a tricky space it's it's then kneeling might become with like throwing your sister me. Anthem has become. It was a very. That was a very different gesture in nineteen, sixty eight. It's not so much a controversial gesture, twenty twenty, or maybe even twenty eighteen, whatever, if kneeling was controversial, Tony Sixteen but is. Generally accepted across the League twenty twenty. Then you're not really protesting. You know anymore and that's. That's important here because we still have people. Who Need to be allies and when I say people, I really do mean the owners. The owners are some of the powerful people perspective states you know like how many people can you name in Texas more powerful? Jerry Jones for a if he's on board. That gets a lot of people on board or it enough people. That are that are Jerry's fans like okay. Cool them battle-gear, but if you know how many people over there, Massachusetts, or more power more powerful than than Bob, kraft right like this. Won't we get those guys on board? Right as allies. That's when we really will get some like after like a true like seismic shift here because that's the people they know prosecutors in their local, you know. States, cities know DA's in they. They know politicians like they. They got power over their. Their voice matters what Robert Kraft says. When a Mike is far more important than some like vague statement on the Patriots Twitter Account, you know I think that's that's the next step here. Owners are owners are good at this. They don't make themselves available might just head coach swing. Put the pressure on head coaches. No, it's not just the coaches. We need to put the pressure on the owners. You guys of the white billionaires. Who Some of you even supported the president. was empowering a lot of the people that still countering backlash. Matter like it's the next step is them. It's getting them to be all in in on this. Because essentially they become recruiters at that point. Can Jerry onboard and you didn't in your in your far right and even riding with Jerry Johnson.

Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's, Rooted in Racist Imagery, to Change

Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's, Rooted in Racist Imagery, to Change

"It's a seismic shift for a more than century old brand with a controversial history today, the Pepsico unit that sells aunt Jemima products, says it's dropping the name and image that's long been used on its pancake mixes and syrups because of its origins in racist imagery of black people also today the Mars Company said it would change its uncle Ben's brand and Conagra said it's putting its Mrs Butterworth's brand under review. They're just some of the companies that are reexamining their histories, products and messaging amid nationwide calls for racial justice and Equality. Joining me now to discuss how big brands are responding or Wall Street Journal, business columnist John Stole and reporter Jennifer Maloney. So, let's start with the big decision today from Pepsico to retire. Aunt Jemima products. This is a huge change. The brand dates back to the late eighteen hundreds Jennifer. What's changed the company's opinion on using the imagery and the name here? What did you hear from Pepsi? They say that in the wake of the killing of George Floyd they recognize that and Jemima's origins are based on racial stereotype, and that while they have made changes over the years to update the brand in a manner that they said was intended to be appropriate and respectful that they now realizes that those changes aren't enough just to look back at the history of this brand. It dates back to eighteen eighty nine. It was inspired by popular song called Old Aunt. My that was typically performed in minstrel shows by a white man. Man in black face, and the creators of the pancake brand hired a former enslaved woman named Nancy Green to be the spokeswoman. She made her debut at a world's fair in Chicago in eighteen ninety three singing in telling stories and making pancakes outside booth, designed to look like giant flour barrel, and the packaging has featured an image of a black woman. Originally, she wore a head scarf the over the years. That image has evolved in thousand, nineteen, hundred nine. The company updated the imagery and replaced the headscarf with Pearl earrings analyst caller. And this isn't the only brand that's acted in recent years or even recent weeks at this point to remove offensive stereotypes, but this moment really feels like something of a sea change in the way, companies are thinking about an also responding more immediately to calls for Racial Justice John. Do you see an increase in responsiveness on the part of major companies in this particular moment? I think the era that we're in right now is kind of. Let's turn over the most obvious things that we can do it. My mind went to completely different. People grew, but you think about the Washington Redskins for instance I? I mean for years. There's been complaints about anti-obama for years. There's been complaints about the Washington redskins and it takes a moment like this for a company to say okay. We need to do the obvious thing that is right by our consumers and our employees. You know you have to remember like it's not just the the consumers and the shelves at stores that the PepsiCo executives or executives at other companies are worried about. They're worried about. Their employees are workforces their stockholders. There's a lot of constituents here that they have to think about before making a move in any other direction and I think. We learned a couple years ago when Nike took a proactive move and canceled a shoe that Colin Kaepernick said would potentially be offensive to the black community. It really was a line in the sand. Where I think the company said. Let's err on the side of caution. It is interesting to see. Not just PepsiCo, but other brands thinking about everything from the way that they advertise market to the way that they speak internally to employees to whether they're not. They're going to sell or buy facial recognition that could potentially be disadvantageous to certain racists. The Big Litmus test for me is whether or not or companies stopped doing stupid stuff. I mean it's amazing. How many companies just put their foot in it over and over again on issues that most most Americans would say that just was not a good. Add to even think about. Our ad got leaked. oops, you're like. Wait a minute. Greenlighted the idea in the first place, so you know I you've seen. Companies create chief diversity officers, the board of directors getting involved there will be an extra layer scrutiny for quite some time on every brand in existence, and then on top of that all of the initiatives going forward. Yeah and to that point, Jennifer. It seems that we are seeing an uptick in companies that are responding more immediately. We also heard from the company behind the Uncle Ben's brand today. Right Mars which makes uncle. Ben's Rice told The Wall Street Journal that it will change its ankle brand. It doesn't know exactly how or when, but they say that they're evaluating all possibilities, and they have committed to making a change. We also saw. Saw earlier this year that land lakes dropped the indigenous woman Mia. It had long featured on its packaging. The company said that that was meant to better reflect its culture. She had first appeared in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, eight, and kneeling in sort of stereotypical clothing and clutching Orlando Container, so we're seeing some of these iconic brands that sort of have drawn on racial stereotypes, really doing some soul-searching right now, I mean. When the NFL. Reverses Course on activities that for a long time it tried to stand at standard arm's length from like kneeling during the national anthem, and now has reversed course as aggressively as they have. It shows the force of the moment that we are in, and it also shows I think finally a level of recognition that a big part of the employee base in the NFL or a big part of the consumer base at Pepsi are not just black. They're also empathetic and agreeing with. The social progress that has kind of being signalled with the demonstrations with the constant drumbeat of black lives, matter or whatever other people group. Legitimately marginalized or offended by age old practices. And how big of a role is the public pressure playing here I mean not just demonstrators and. who are out in the streets, but also pressure for these companies from within from their own employees we've seen employees feel more empowered, and and far more bold to say what they feel. And to get the discussion from a discussion to actual action, I mean I think I've done interviews for twenty years about discussions. We've got to have a discussion. We've got a dialogue. We've got to get this out into the public. Square and I think people are saying. Hey, enough is enough. It's like we gotta do something. It's like when people complain. After a mass shooting about thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers are great, but they're not going to bring back my son or they're not gonna change this happening again. We need action and I think employees are starting to say. You can put the statement out. You can put the tweet out. You can change the your your your twitter profile whatever you WanNa do for a day or two, but what are going to be the steps to lasting and meaningful change. The employees are definitely starting to feel that way. Yeah, it also seems like there's a much bigger call to action. Now I mean I've spoken to co workers and friends about all the messages were getting via email from companies. You wouldn't think would normally weigh in on issues of racial justice, but. It seems like this is a time where people are saying. Need more than just words, so is what we're seeing from big brands enough. Well, this is what big companies across the United States and beyond are grappling with right now. Their own workforce's are demanding significant structural change. And so you see companies sort of racing, not just to put out statements to supporting black lives matter movement, but. To introduce new initiatives policies in terms of hiring in terms of charitable, giving in terms of you know trying to promote people of color up through the ranks of the organization diversify their boards, and I think we're going to see more as the days and weeks progress, but we already have seen a number of announcements from companies to pledging. Actions and and trying to put money where their mouth is.

What are your thoughts on that? Well you know I. IT hurts me. You know I know Tori as a person. I've always had the utmost respect for him. Probably one of my favorite hits, they hit a high fastball. does a lot of damage that high. Around and say Torii hundred played in the game today he's hit. Fifty home runs a year.

You Know Boston was tough. you know it. Being a fan favorite there. Being a white guy. Know Jewish in Brooklyn right down. The street is a very Jewish neighborhood. I was lucky. You know they love me, but I did see some tension with even my own teammates, and there was one incident where. A fan of came running down and was being extra towards one of our our black players, and I just got fed up and I stood up, and I told him to shut up and if he doesn't like you, get the hell out of here and. I'll never forget that moment because I was boiling. Because you could just see, there was this tension, and it wasn't the same tension that was towards a white player, but You know. For the most part I'd like to say to the Red Sox fans. You know it's not the majority. I, it's a minority of people that act like that, but you know the minorities too big, and you have to eliminate that, and there's no place for that and hatred towards you know the black players that are on the field that in and I.

And is Jimmy Garoppolo. Break in order for him. The complete to deal somebody s to choke in order for Tom Brady to have that chance. Why is he got thirteen game winning drives? Of in the Super Bowl Oh, and you know what whom he's actually one six super bowls so every single super bowl. He's worn. He has led the game winning dry. Out of Them, if Bella checks, defense would have held me okay here, here's the other. Talking about. is in the. Bath there were eighteen. And Tom, Brady somehow chuckled at the notion. It was scoring thirty five points a game that was supposed to be the greatest team ever assembled in NFL. History and Tom Brady was held to fourteen points that is exhibited a or how when it matters most Tom Brady doesn't show up for the big games. Really, that was a big randy, Moss. Yes is stopped. They were supposed. Giant just. Nine seven. What happened there Chris? Any points in that game, no baiting Lord. He's got three super bowls. In the first three Super Bowls Adam Viteri. Go winning draws who put video? Stope within the position to kick the field goals. Why can't Rogers do that? He got a field goal kicker. Why can't he do that? Didn't rob. I like Aaron Rogers. He is a great quarterback and all time great quarterback. But. He is not Tom Brady. He's a better physical specimen Tom Brady, but he doesn't have the intangibles I. Keep trying to teach you. About something. That's what you would still go ahead unique shirts..

Chris doesn't want to own up to it. He knows that Brady's been very lucky. Tom Brady could easily have one super bowl win if it wasn't for three teams melting down and make him bad plays. Tom Brady is overrated when it comes to the big game, he just is. He's been afforded the luxury of having things. Boo handed to him including an interception Seattle and an. An Alabama's kick against Carolina I could go on and on. Atlanta blowing a twenty eight to three lead in the second half. If you really honest with yourself, he hasn't been that guy and all those early super bowls. Will all about an invitation? He hasn't been dominant. As as as a quarterback are you done? This is sad.

"Your families are going well instead. Say Thank you, man, we are, and we hope the same for you, and it's been a while since we've seen you, so it's definitely good to good to wrap with you less. Obviously there's so much going on I. Know Rob Going to have a question about this right in the moment, but I want to ask you. Do you think that right at this moment? Most or maybe all players in the NFL are going to kneel. For the national anthem if it'd be if when the season resumes or when they started a lot of. Players are going to have some form of protest during the National Anthem I know Adrian Peterson went on to record this weekend and said he thinks a lot of guys around the NFL will protest and take a knee, not just the black players, but all the players, and so I think you'll see solidarity on that Front Kingsbury came out this afternoon and said that he would support his players out in Arizona protesting during the national anthem, including taking any, so I think there's a dramatic shift in the minds of. The people that are running the League office, but the people at the club level in the NFL when the big well family has shown the way that they have shown that they want to support their players and being able to process everything that's happened over the last couple of weeks in the fight for racial inequality. I think that's that's that's sort of a barometer in terms of where I think a lot of NFL teams will end up moving toward ultimately trying to empower their players and amplify the message that tried to silence for years ago with college after. My today. I vote a column for Deadspin. Dot. com basically saying that the NFL should just remove the national anthem altogether that nobody else has to. stand up. During the national anthem before they go to work other than players and sports writers. And fans who you know as far as the. For their job. What do you think about that where you just take it out of the mix to focus days on what it is that we're talking about? It's not about the flag, and then if people wanna just kneel together in a circle as a show of solidarity on the situation, but you remove the flag totally from the conversation where you on that. Well I don't think it's necessary. I think we're in a in a different place than we wear for you to go as a country. You're not think that you have overwhelming support for people that from people that That would believe in the players. Demonstrating in that fashion during the national anthem I. Don't think that we we have to remove the national anthem from sporting events in order to keep from being a national controversy I just don't think we're there. I think the needle is moved in terms of you know how people view this particular issue just because they recognize the urgency that we need to have. have in fixing racism in this country I. think that we saw the video of Derek. Shaaban kneeling on George. Floyd's neck for over eight minutes that was enough for America to look itself in the mirror and say you know what we've gotta do something to fix this because this isn't right and the reason why George Florida's dead in port it because he's black. And that has to change, and that's what the players we're talking about in two thousand sixteen, and so to try to. Manipulate the Messi, manipulate the message or misrepresent what the protests was actually about. People have moved beyond that now with everything that we've been faced with the last two or three months with the pandemic, and now I think folks recognize that what we were talking about back in twenty sixteen with never about disrespecting the men and women of the on forces, and it was never about disrespecting the flag, but it had everything to do with forcing America to live up to the ideals that the flag symbolize. Super Bowl champion. F S ONE NFL analyst Chris Canty, joining the couple of Chris. You saw the players video that they made demanding. A statement from the NFL Roger. Goodell basically said exactly what they asked him to say on his video. I feel like to make if you apologize for squelching the protests, which that's what Goodell did he apologized? I feel like you have to at least I. Don't know where Capper Knicks, head is at right now would even WanNa play in the league. Would he think it was just a PR stunting rejected or what? But I think he should be offered a job in the NFL, and do you feel that way, and do you think players may be should push for that? There were toward the the rest of the players in the national. Football League had to make it twenty sixteen. Because you guys were concerned about their career mortality if they decided to support Colin Kaepernick's in protests alongside them. I think their concerns were justified. Because we've seen what happened to Catholic, he's been out of football for the past. They can't get rid of the Holy Chris. Is Unity. They cannot get rid of the whole league. The players Union this week. They allow the end up. Over and over Rob Rob lifted I'm not gonNA. Argue any of the points that you're making because listen if we did have solidarity to that degree in the players, union we win every single collective bargaining agreement negotiation. But you know that that that's not what happened, so the reality is..

"How are you brother I'm doing great. How are you Mr Chris Broussard? I am well man I am well. How was your weekend? Not Bad, not that did too many things, but got outside a little bit some fresh air, but nothing major feeling. Good things really feel like they're opening up out there. Yeah a little bit more stores are opening. I see some people I'm not ready to go into restaurants yet, but some people restaurants o'reilly I didn't know that Okay Yep and I think at the end this week Chris. The gyms and I did go get a haircut. The Barber shops are open so Gao thank God. Yes, thank you. Feel like a million bucks and. I think this week. That gym's open up again a think. Oh, year or or the Fifteenth Crystal! Either distended a week or the fifteenth. So that's when you'll get all your big muscles back I need old. I, do less not. We gotTA. Go close patches of yourself. Underwear I know he's got. A woman. was taking a picture of the hat on. Those skivvies might have the soccer. Move from that I'm going to move on from that. March this weekend route I saw the pictures. Family and I've March and. People out there. Yeah, a lot of out there. Chris, the pictures or tremendous all the pictures and videos that you posted on your social media, accounts and yeah I mean. What was the Bob like? It was. We're not I. Marched in Jersey, there were some pictures that you saw probably from a march in New York to. For the King Movement, but my Marching Jersey it was a nice. Obviously, it was very positive you had. It was mostly white Americans mostly. But there was plenty of people of Color Black Hispanic various races. There are people giving out water you know as you walk out of houses, tons of signs, not just among the marchers, but like people put banners on their bushes. Houses walking by one brother was playing fight to power by public enemy. His And so it was, it was good, and then they had you know they rally had a rally in and all that, so it was good man. It was good to be a part of and you know people are believing and hoping that this leads to real change, and we're obviously getting into some of this. Because some of these people hoping for this lot of them actually are professional athletes and we're GONNA. Get into that, but let me welcome in the. Crew, of course, we got DJ Alex Atari Shirt on the ones and the twos Aka Alex Vegan on a magic city. Monday we got Super Producer Rob g running thanks. Hey on the updates. It is my man part of the big three part of the Big Three Brian Finley. So you know it's a good day for updates all right rob. Let's get right into this thing. And we spoke Friday Friday was a big day big day for the NFL obviously several of their star players including. Patrick Mahomes saquon Barkley Odell. Beckham junior and many others Ezekiel Elliott. They put together a video. Demanding that the NFL I, E Commissioner Roger Goodell will make a statement. Supporting black lives matter. Saying they apologize for the going against squelching the peaceful protests of the players and saying that they condemn systemic racism racism systemic racism, so the League getting Roger, Goodell did it. and. Not Surprising, the you knew it was coming rob, he got the president's attention. And this is important because we know according to a deposition that the owners admittedly were intimidated by President Donald Trump when he turned it and change the narrative. And made it not about capper, nick, protesting injustice and protest the the killing of unarmed American citizens. Trump changed the whole narrative to it was about the flag. Football players were disrespecting the flag when. The reality is that. Don't let the facts. Get in the way right the reality is that capture. Nick went out of his way. To be respectful of the flag meddling with Nate Boyer, the army, Green Beret, who we toyoto right, and boy, suggested kneeling because nearly in America at least has never been viewed as anything disrespectful. You go to church you kneel down, you pray you kneel down. You know so. He said that would actually be a sign of art. Honoring the flag and the veterans. And so still getting your point across, so Cabernet did that and yet. President trump change the narrative and many fell for it. And now Donald Trump is continuing that and here's what He. Posted, on twitter rob just several hours ago around noon this morning. Could it be even remotely possible. This is direct quote from President Trump that in Roger Goodell's rather interesting statement of peace and reconciliation. He was intimating that it would now be okay for the players to kneel, or to not or not to stand for the national anthem, thereby disrespecting our country and our flag. Rob This is gonNA. Be Interesting to see how the NFL has this and you seem to have. I saw your column very column deadspin today. Is that your answer to it, but go go ahead and share. My answer. The headline on the column was NFL should drop national anthem. Embrace Change and Chris in that column. They ask Adrian Peterson who of course plays for Washington? If, he would be kneeling this season and he said without a doubt. I think it won't be the ideal or of WHO's not. whose whose kneeling Chris the Question Ob, who's not kneeling? Do you know what I mean as we go forward right close where we are and because of this movement. So my point was if the NFL one of the gray ladies in the country and I'm talking about. ICONIC BID. Right one of those institutions that go back a long way if they could. Make a change. It might lead others into. Understanding that yes Chris..

"You're listening to a special episode of the briefing looking back at the best of the foreign desk in two thousand eighteen on monocle twenty four there is no more potent soft power weapon than a country's national anthem flags. Mealy flutter anthems can rows lull or seduce until a powerful story about a nation's history and mythology. They can be roared exultantly at moments of triumph crooned mournfully in response to tragedy. They are the jingle sound tracking. What country wishes to advertise it self? So what makes a great national anthem? What is lacking from a sub optimal one and who has the best one in this special episode? We'll look at the musical historical and diplomatic angles before our star guest performs the anthem acclaimed. The winner of what's basically going to be a World Cup without the football. This is the foreign desk. One of the test. I applied to notch lungfuls approach is if you stick with the news just look of the woods does does the anthem achy hold together as something approaching poetry and comes from a really genuine place is anthem. It is a really revolutionary piece that kind of rose up from the French people. So in some ways, it's the kind of opposite of a state commissioned anthem, which can sometimes be very sterile and anodyne China's being laws around national anthem see them from trying to quell anthem protests in Hong Kong, boy instituting a fifteen day jail term for anyone who disrespects him and have just optics is three years. So by next year, I'm expecting it to be a fool lifetimes jail sentence. And I think one of the best things about is how they play a role in everyday life fiscal events. There's something about the Russian language. One is languages where you can say anything like new doors possible to salt on it. Still sounds if you're conveying a major truth about life. Calmness..
