The Democrats are part of black lives matter. They own the media. They have a majority in the Senate majority in the House. I don't know what they have in the Oval Office. I wouldn't call that a majority and that could be a detriment. But anyway, they have the Oval Office. And they still can't get What? Woz. It was the jeweler in the crown of what they were running on. You know, police are bad. We have to deflect defund the police. The police are so horrible, systematic racism, Systemic racism, whatever they call it. And it's unfortunate. Now. I don't know if you were watching the live coverage yesterday, but I It was Awkward and truly nothing funny about it. If anything, it was irony and thank God. No one was hurt, but as they were there at a place Where George Floyd there at that corner where the tragedy occurred there, covering the George Floyd situation, the one year anniversary of his death. And gunfire erupts. I counted 28 shots. No, really. It was really gunfire, and some of the journalists ran and took cover. And I just thought that this is you can't make this up. You can make it up. You cannot make it up. That's the irony of de funding the police demonizing the police. Making the bad guys look good and the good guys. Look bad. I don't know if you saw last night, Portland police declared a riot. Fires were set windows were smashed. Arrests were made. And this Woz, according to the people rioting to recognize Jorge Floyd's death. Here's what's being overlooked with this. Do you realize how quickly That whole incident. Was adjudicated how quickly justice was done within two weeks. Law enforcement officer. Who was convicted of murdering him second degree murder. He was arrested within two weeks. And in addition to that, the city The city gave George Floyd's family They want a lawsuit for $27 million And then from what I understand, they got another eight million off a go fund me page. So how can you say with a straight face? There's no justice in America. You had a Black convicted felon. That was unjustifiably killed. Within two weeks, the law enforcement person that did it was fired. Charged. And now he's going to prison, probably for the rest of his life. What's the beef? That's what we're trying to figure that out. What's the beef? I would call that a success story. If I was black lives matter, and that's why a lot of us don't believe Black lives matter Is that legit? My question has always been which black lives matter. Matter to black lives matter. That's always the question. Are you trying to shove a political agenda down her throat or you trying to get justice for people? Here's Randy Sutton. He's a former Las Vegas police lieutenant. All we're hearing is let's take away qualified immunity. Let's make it easier to prosecute. Let's do everything negative against the police, including when I'm calling the left three the or Triple D leftist agenda towards destroying the law enforcement and that is de funding. Dehumanizing and demoralizing. American law enforcement officers extremely well said All you have to do is look across America now start with the blue cities. See how things were going. Here's rush with the war on cops. I would not call this book Essential Heaven MacDonald, the war on cops, which will help you find it. That's really all you need. But the full title is how the new attack on law and order makes everybody less safe, and there was a study by the New York Police Department by the former acting director of the National Institute of Justice found That black officers in the New York Police Department were 3.3 times more likely to use their guns and shooting scenes. And white officers. So a officers are more hesitant about shooting armed black suspects than armed white suspects to the point where now there's a risk that offices or hesitating so long that they may put their own lives at risk. The black lives matter mean that this is all about white officers attacking unarmed blacks. Simply not true, and that's The bottom line here. Everything everybody believes isn't true. They think Ferguson. Missouri happens every day, and it does not. But we do know that in Ferguson, they created a totally false narrative. Hands up. Don't shoot never happened. And yet how many People in this country. Minorities believe that it did to this day now..

"But again text the word money to 202 100. So the world's just gone crazy all rounds wherever we look, It's just it's just seems to be out of control. One of the lessons I think Republicans have not learned. From the past several years is that regardless of the nature of their policies related, the voting rights and rules were always going to be compared by Democrats. To Jim Crow policies. So the most will just make the rules is clear and hardness possible. To stop fraud. I find it fascinating friend of mine down Arizona tweeted this out today I spent the afternoon program talking about vaccine passports. Which are truly a fundamental threat to our individual liberty. New York state is doing this mail. And I'm sure the jury and police will jump on it here in Colorado, and he'll start pushing the idea of a vaccine passport. But there's nothing to fear because the government keep your dada say from private. There won't be any sort of caste system where some of us are more equal than others because some people got vaccinated and some didn't or some have antibodies. And some don't imagine that. Just imagine. That your ability to do things Is going to hinge on whether or not you have been vaccinated, not vaccinated. Whether or not you have antibodies from covert er don't have antibodies in your system or whether you've tested positive or negative and a PCR test when we know that most PCR tests, at least initially were way. Way over tested. And people had people got so many false positives because they were just when they were just running the samples through too many cycles. When it comes to these voting rights laws. The idea of that. Somehow that we have to have And I d. You know a driver's license if you happen to have a driver's license But if you don't drive, let's just say that you're you know, you're a you're a millennial that lives in downtown Denver. Use light rail or Busses or stupid rented bikes or scooters. Whatever it is that you get around. Maybe you actually walk somewhere. So you don't have drugs license? You know, when I was growing up? It was like the morning of your 16th birthday, man. Parents just get out the way because you gotta take your kid to the D. M V to do the driving test to get your license. But today people turned 16 whatever. Or they turn 18 or 20 or 21 whenever 25 still no driver's license. I'm fascinated by that. Another West. You have to have some sort of ID to vote driver's license, maybe a passport. Like a state department. Passport, not a New Yorker. Colorado State vaccine passport But you know, every state that I'm aware of. I don't think there's an exception to this. Every state that I'm aware of. I think all 50 50 of them or 57 them. Allow you to get a state issued idea. No charge. No, the D M V. No, I'm not here. Your driver's license. I just need to state I d. And you, You have to show residency like showing electric Bill utility bill or property tax bill or a lease agreement or something that shows you're residing in the county where you're trying to get a state I d. I'll give you one. I'll get you one I always found that racist when Democrats would claim That somehow it was racist to require an ID because they would claim that we were trying to suppress the black vote. Always scratch my head of that one. So are you telling me that as Democrats, you think black people are incapable of getting a free state ID? Or the Blacks Don't drive or the Black still has State Department issued passports. In this mess is what they're saying. That it's racist to require nightie. Okay, Well, I think you're crazy. But I don't think that I don't think blacks were any more incapable of getting a a state idea. A driver's license or a passport or anything else, then any other race or ethnicity. Me despite the legislation, leaving a lot of issues and unaddressed and taking a really soft touch toward a number difficult questions. Georgia is still getting slammed, and leftist activists are now weaponizing corporations against The state of Georgia. Before I even examples of that I would encourage you to do your own little research. Because Joe Biden walked out on south one of the White House. I think it was. You know, Thursday evening or Friday, he's going. He was going to Wilmington. He was going home home for the weekend. As he walked out. He walked over to probably of pre selected group of reporters that we're told Don't yell at him. And just ask one question because I think you only answered one question, and that was what he thought about Georgia's Voter registration. I d laws. And he called them UN American. There was just un American outrageous. It was an attempt to suppress the black booked. By requiring somebody have an idea to go vote. I would like if you're interested. I would encourage you to go look at the state of Delaware's voter registration and I d laws. Because they're much more stringent than the state of Georgia. They have much may have many more requirements than the state of Georgia does. But George is the one getting picked on because they just passed the law that tried to tighten up some of these requirements. Little bit. And by a little bit, I mean a little bit. You know, you go back shortly after Ryan camp signed the new voter Integrity loss last week. Squeeze play began. Representative of the Major League Baseball Players Association, suggested that players would support moving the All Star Game out of Atlanta. Why? Why? Because you think that Georgia's somehow is a racist state that you think that these laws then I would just suggest that the Major League Baseball Players Association might want to do their homework before they go out. Make dumb ass statements. But then that whole demands by the National Black Justice Coalition that the PGA Tour and the Masters tournament pull all the events from Augusta National Golf Course. And then, of course, they started calling for boycotts against Coca Cola, which is based in Atlanta, Home Depot and Delta Airlines. Wow. You mean for just asking that when you go to vote in Georgia Thanks to actually prove that you're a resident of Georgia. And asking somebody to prove that is racist. I would say the National Black Justice Coalition in the Major League Baseball Players Association, I'd suggest that they're either racist or ignorant. Or both.

"The entertainment industry for so long. Tell me why you chose to go with this route. I am obsessed with looking back in history to help understand why we are where we are now, and there's so much that hasn't been done around looking at trans history on so many different levels, and because my work is an immediate and I'm obsessed with media and want to get do better on what the media do better. It made a lot of sense. We don't even think about it from the time we kids will. Will receiving images we receiving images, images and video, and we just talked to you know, assemble the world in our minds. There's no denying that trans has for a very long time been a punchline trans being you know always displayed as the other the scary. The punchline it's it's. It's been this thing over the past few years we've. We've started seeing the change, but but when you look at it as somebody who is trans. What have you seen a big change change been enough. Enough it's is relative. Right like What the film one of the things that grapples with is if there is indeed unprecedented representational, Trans folks in the media that really probably began about six years ago and Sam his. Director Sam. Feder noted that whenever there is increased visibility, but marginalized community. There's often backlash, and it's often increased violence, and that is exactly what we're seeing with increased murderers of Black Trans Women, and with the legislative assaults. Well, so yes, things have gotten better in terms of visibility, and then there has been a backlash that we're seeing, and I think one of the most critical things that we should all remember is how the take Meka divide and conquer works, and to marginalized people right so that I was still beautifully. Beautifully moved when I thought that protest for Black Trans lives right a little over a week ago and many people. Yeah, and here L. as well I, we're folks were declaring that black lives matter that we understand that all black folks are affected by the racism and that we have to come together and we all marginalized people have to come together. Here's a question i. have that's a difficult one and I would only ask you because I'm comfortable with you. But how do you think we get to the place where? People can acknowledge their discomfit and their misunderstanding of a thing, whilst not offending or discriminate discriminating against the other person. How would you encourage that you know in the same way? We're having conversations race. How would you say to people? Hey, let's try and encourage just a movement in and around Trans Awareness. I think we have to really learn how to fit with discomfort period. Right I think whenever we it is. We are called upon to interrogate are internalized racism entering Transphobia, and we all internalize these things as Americans probably citizens of the world. And so we each have to be able to sit with that discomfort. I think so often when we are when we come up against something that is uncomfortable for us. Often we go into this defense mode. We go into five free magazine called me transphobic. Then have to immediately defend Matt instead of taking a breath and taking a moment and sitting with the discomfort of maybe being called out. Maybe you weren't wrong. Maybe you were. We. All have to struggle, so I think a lot of it's about learning how to sit with this comfort, not going into firefighter free, so we can actually hear what the criticism and critique is and understanding that. Being uncomfortable does not mean that you are unsafe. Right so there's a difference between. The bathroom conversation just makes me think so much about because relief effort every for. Several years, it was all about bathrooms banning dryers. Right in the segregated south why folks were not comfortable with black people in the bathroom with him? Did that mean that they were unsafe? And so, what does it mean for us to sit with comfort? What does it mean for us to really ask ourselves? Are we not safe or we just uncomfortable? I know you've been working on programs. To. Try and help transpeople. Break into the industry. You don't just behind behind the cameras and you really pushing for how Trans People portrayed onscreen. What are the big changes you think we need to make? I think is how do we have an diverse people in positions of power? Right one of the things. I'm most proud of with disclosure. Is that everyone onscreen? It's Trans and most of the people working behind the scenes and the crew also trans and in the case, and we couldn't find someone trans to fill a role We had a fellowship program. We had assistant a person train. The Trans Person, and but it's not just about what Colonel West Coast putting black faces in high places right? It's not just about you know sort of putting. Diverse people in the same sort of corrupt systems we have to change the way that power works, and so much of that is about I believe change the material conditions of poor and working people people who are the most marginalized. Get them you know opportunities to work in the industry behind the scenes, and then be truly elevated to positions of power to not just occupy the same sort of you know corrupt system, but to change the system.

"In an arena. Every day we are still seeing changes in response to the black lives matter protests that exploded all over the US a month ago. Police departments are being scrutinized and even changed. Companies are looking at the lack of diversity and racist statues are falling harder than Mike Pence boarding a plane. And in Rhode Island they're taking steps to make their official state name. A lot less problematic Rhode Island's official name could soon exclude a portion with ties to slavery. The official name of Rhode Island is Rhode Island and providence plantations. The state's governor signed an executive order to remove providence plantations from citation, state, websites and state employees pay stubs. We can't ignore the image conjured by the word plantations. We can't ignore how painful that is for Black Rhode Islanders to see that and had to see that as part of their states name right. America's just. because. I didn't even know that. Rhode Island's official full name was Rhode. Island and providence plantations to all the states have problematic full names. We've just never heard about like actually. The Republic of California and Japanese internment camps, or Alaska to new for slavery, but kind of wish. We had a shot at its is Maine's fool name Gucci Mane as you may know. June is pride month and right now. We want to highlight charities that are making a difference. Difference for lgbtq people of Color like the National Black Justice Coalition, which advocates for federal policies that fights against racism and homophobia.

"What I do think is music has the power to lift people up to give them hope to make them feel that connection so that low, and I feel like people could use some more of that right now and I think is album. Has that kind of feeling? It it it really is. It's a smooth album. You know like it's it's. It's smooth it. It's really I'm serious. It's like it's comforting. It's beautiful. It's like it's like John Legend in the way that we know in love you and you've got some. You've got some wonderful cameos that come on and join got some to feature on the album everybody from Gary. Clark Junior, to deny. And it's beautiful to hear these different sounds and melodies coming together. Why the title big love it feels like that's been a theme I've heard from you recently. You know I heard it in the versus with. It felt like it was like a battle of love which I've never encountered I've never experienced knife, but it feels like that's something that you've really been pushing. You know when I was writing these songs that was what was it my head? I I wrote the title track bigger love back in the fall of last year with Ryan, tetter and cautious clay and we were in the studio, just you. You know trying to write. A Beautiful Song that felt connected is still honest. And and fell powerful and necessary. In that moment we didn't know how necessary would be you know a few months later of and how much connection people would be craving this moment But it felt right at the time, and it feels even more relevant now and I think the idea behind the title is that? This album is colorful will love. Will the pope and optimism, and that title felt like a captured that at sentiments. John Legend. Thank you so much for the music. Thank you for taking the time. Thank you so much for that John as you may know June is pride month, and right now we want to highlight charities that are making a difference for lgbtq people of Color like the National Black Justice Coalition, which advocates for federal policies that fights against racism and homophobia.

"Since we talked to a man in a month ago six weeks ago the story has just exploded and then the three thirty today from the Santa Fe office of affordable housing Alexandra laughs. David Johns joins us now David is the exact the director of the national black justice coalition David good afternoon. thank you for having me absolutely Sir all right before we get started on this report which I I read I don't few weeks ago and then contacted you guys. tell us what the. what your coalition ends. yeah I appreciate our question and you taking the time to read the report I don't you don't know the national blocks of coalition and as the nation's only civil rights organization that works to intentionally and unapologetically at the intersections of race so jot that down LGBT Q. I a quality we acknowledge that as long as there have been black people and other people of color there at that black and other people of color who also LGBT Q. rights what and I use the term a delivery and we do a lot of work around social justice to ensure that everyone has access to October protection out portable housing healthcare and the like the coalition's website is. W. W. W. dot in BJ's the national black on the coalition dot O. R. G. R. people can also follow up using and BJ the honorable across digital platforms. David on a few where about of this but us and if he has a very large LGBTQ plus community and we also have a large population of people of color so this is this is this is very much charm. this is very important people who live in communities like Santa Fe we're not necessarily world but you know not far away you know it is very very real so what are some of the of the important. takeaways from your report. yeah I appreciate that page that want to acknowledge as well about what not gonna pay my godmother American public back pain. I need some time to the beautiful state and appreciate the diversity that exists and is often not acknowledged whenever we think about the experiences are both black and LGBTQ people so to your point knowledge of you need to know about Santa Fe I'm also from California also I appreciate that on the way that typically would be black conversation about black people in black with people they can't Austin shepherd major metropolitan areas that or forget that awkward longer half bad will southern and western states that are black and black LGBTQ people have also awful call those take it home with their two days that are really important for me for people to take away from the report whether or not they have the time actually died digested and full Bob is that again one black people and LGBTQ people of color have always called will America home we are I'm like a lot of white people he well come out and then moved to a cable hook like Hollywood California Chelsea New York aboard counts Chicago black LGBTQ people tend to live with other black people I would just of course the concentrated in the south and in particular we live in states where there often legal protections for employers and housing providers and other people who are willfully or otherwise and seek to deny a black liquid people access to housing employment another basic protection and a little communities where you will be likely to have access to the marketing center or or corporations that might be operating social justice program individuals who are discriminated against through our fired from their employment because their actual or perceived sexual identity our generation our question what what will face additional challenges and not being able to find other sources of support our goal is not only our our experience in the game balls of LGBTQ people of color will America often overlook Arbor people mess that up the check. Allen's of that out to people of color face firewall community the particular off the compound that because you don't have these additional resources are sources of support. I guess is is David Johns exactly director national black justice coalition you know David people might say well why don't you just live where it's safe once just live with people you know that are not going to discriminate against you be mean to you or threatened you physically. yeah I would say tell me where that place is well the homeowners or stand on exactly bat yeah. however comma again west Hollywood it's all bad blood donor who was recently corrected and and they'd be gone formal proceeding after there had been out to black gay man at about at home and I started like a man who are barely escaped death life I think I could make the point that there are very few places in the country acknowledging our troubled and continued history where I tried and I guess late night anti black and white the permit fee where LGBTQ people of color particular black people of color octyl face what we know is that kid twenty sixteen the rates of reported federal hate crimes against black LGBTQ people have continued to increase in the current administration only spoke so afraid of my **** real hate and violence and so while nice to say to someone that they should move I would say to anyone who would be attempting to fix our best offer that statement are required to ask them first to acknowledge their privilege someone who will say that will likely have the financial and social privilege October two spaces and and at that they'll face as they do so which take me to my second point it is often the case the festival we think about big here the people are it will communities and actually the communities that they simply don't have the luxury of moving and go beyond the reflected the desire to tell people who are experiencing problems but they did not create that they need to fall down we need to get at the root of the issue one otherwise insure that everyone felt they welcomed and supported no matter the spaces that are forced to move or their privilege. all right so excellent points all of those the I'm your coalition if people are LGBTQ plus if they're living in rural areas if they are facing discrimination facing fear all those kind of things. are they able to report those stories anything can you assist people. yeah we most definitely can we do a lot of work around and sure and basic and legal protection of how the two key people of color are so the short answer is yes people short you know lack of it in our website again in the J. C. dot O. R. G. I'm a let us know about that this is ministration prepared all market it's our state our challenges that maybe opportunities we think about the topic but I would still encourage people to leverage the department of justice I had to file civil rights complaint as they are violated unnecessary OB and then the other thing that I would underscore our exam but the question we started by talking about the problem we also serve as a resource for non LGBTQ people too often is the case that people experience violence and hate because of a lack of understanding a lack of language the lack of practice and having conversations with people who have very diverse experiences that we offer third by the force of support for people who want to be allies who don't know what it means to be an ally after people willing to do a little bit more work so that they can move from being an ally they got a couple. so what can we do what can we do people in Santa Fe concerned about these kind of issues what can we do to help and be an ally of you and the people who are being discriminated against maybe not here in Santa Fe but sometimes even here in Santa Fe you know we think we're cool and all that we find out actually we're not all that cool but people may be out in the more rural areas maybe not as world Clovis but rulers of New Mexico. David we still have you. sound like we might have lost name. all right if you can call back he will anyway it a D. L. once again the organization is known as the national black justice coalition and their website is fantastic you can find this report which is really good has a lot of what of links to it and a lot of really good footnotes to it and information in this report that is very very helpful especially to the LGBTQ plus committee and David has rejoined as David you back yeah sorry about that technical challenge at the double is busy so yeah the three things that I would offer a warrant it wouldn't have the time in the luxury the privilege readable for there's lots of information okay a source of support their offer example that people can read about local efforts of people to respond to the challenges of the second is the Dow but we have to tool kit work matter we acknowledge our processing again too often don't have become the basis because we don't have the language so I curse people to download those tool kit the most recent one around gender justice well I filter some of the most significant part of the look for when you think about violence in our conversation about hate crimes and that and and and privilege and then the last thing is that we should all do a better job of checking our option and the language that we use that often might assume people's gender identity sexual orientation or expression otherwise Mr your people are contribute to the problematic wave that LGBTQ people LGBTQ people of color experience violence both with words and what language I mean with working with action right. on a lot of those lessons can be found on your website because we all need to learn more. they can as well as the croc it'll platforms using in B. J. C. on the go hi David please take your time preacher to work you're doing and I want to get people can find you by going to but let me make sure I get this right in J. B. C. dot O. RG which was that indeed national anyway I'm sorry LBJ C. dot O. R. G. correct. that's correct and it is where we call home L. G. B. T. people of color in rural America is report and it's and it's very well done with a lot of information thank you Sir. thank you I appreciate that okay have a great day you as well as eighteen minutes after two o'clock all right anything on your mind today anything you feel like talking about we got a few minutes bottom of the hour we'll talk to Paul Gibson from retake our democracy..

"And now my conversation with David John's executive director of the national black Justice coalition. David thanks so much for joining us the impacts of the people. Thank you for having me. Good, sir. Have so many questions about what you're doing now. But I wanna know what was it like to transition out of the Obama White House and decide what you were going to focus on next. It's like how do you reflect on things that you learn in the abaya ministration, and how did that help set you up to think about what you're gonna do next for me leading an initiative that President Obama established the White House initiative on educational excellence for African Americans wasn't incredibly humbling experience when I think about the transition out of that role it is incredibly disappointing. I think about the feeling of being in my office the day of inauguration almost being arrested because I forgot I lost track of time trying to download files and save as much as I could. No that the incoming administration. I plans to delete as much as possible, including websites. You know, I thought early on in the period of time between election day and inauguration about how to best use my time talent on my treasures. And I knew that I wanted to be selfish and retreating to comfort space, which is echoed a'mia pursuer PHD to think through some of the challenges that vex me during my ten years and DC both crafting federal policy and then implementing it as a part of the administration. But then also, you know, while I was in the White House that thing that I'm most proud of is having produced the summit series where students were centered we produce one particular black LGBTQ youth, which was significant because I spent almost a decade on Capitol Hill and all that time whenever people lobby for black students. They talked as if they were all heterosexual. And then conversely whenever people talked about our lobbied for LGBTQ their protest them as if they were all white. And so knowing that as long as there have been black people. Have been blocked out to be Q people and that often unless people were intentional and unapologetic and centering and celebrating those intersection identities we were Nord and our needs neglect it. So there was an opportunity to work with the national by Justice coalition are really to continue to working with them because we produce a summit together. And my board chair share limit Hicks was in the role that I have now. And so there was already a working relationship. But there was an opportunity to deepen the work for me to marry a personal commitment to claiming space without apologizing. Shrinking are denying parts of myself, but also to make space for other people in what is the national by Justice coalition. Like, how'd you describe it as if evil like what does it do? Why do you think this is going to be the avenue to make the impact you wanna make? Yeah. A question. I get off the national black Justice coalition is a nation's only civil rights and public policy organization that is intentional and unapologetic and advocating for and celebrating the assets of. Of black LGBTQ and same gender loving people. We do the work of acknowledging those of us who are most neglected ignored reminding people as I said previously that as long as people have existed LGBTQ people have existed, and that is true for black people as much as it is true for non black people and our work as primarily focused on three core things the first is China show or an advocate for health and wellness, particularly by dressing disproportionate impact that HIV aids continues to have an our community the second area of I work as cultural competent, so quipping people with the language context resources with which they can do a better job of understanding than holding space for black LGBTQ people, and then the third areas focusing on public policy really advocating for legal protections and other policies and practices that address the core issues that affect black LGBTQ people are families in our community, more, generally. What are some of the policy issues that we should be focused on that? You think having gotten the public attention that they need?.

"The party of the people and this episode we're joined by David John's executive director of the national black Justice coalition nations only civil rights and public policy organization that is intentional and unapologetic and advocating for and celebrating the assets of black LGBTQ and same gender loving people. And it's the news as me Britney Clinton's as usual. Now. The thing that's been on my mind this week is that sometimes you just gotta step away from the internet that I'm not convinced we are designed to take in so much information so consistently in so steadily in that recently, I was on a trip, and I just wasn't online in the way that I'm normally the line, and it was just such a different way to go to the world not being from bartered with the thoughts of other people all the time in a part of me thinks that while the internet can definitely inspire us and social media can inspire us and make us aware of a host of. Ideas that we would never been in proximity to one of the ways that we're actually able to access our gift is through a focus and the like a deliberate ability to sit with our own ideas. That's what I've had to remind myself in these past couple of weeks. I need space it with my own ideas. Let's go. Hey, y'all it's the news. This is Britney pacman atmospheric ETI on all social media. And this is Samson Yang Assam's way on Twitter. This is Clinton at Clinton it third. I in this is Dray at Dray D R A Y onto. You know, inappropriate response after Clinton should himself. This could have been okay because I think everybody in their right mind should be team Cardi B bardy gang right now. Listen, I saw that. If she was like, I'm scared about the shutdown, and I know a lot of you all think it doesn't matter. But it does. And here's why I guess Obama shut down the government, but that was for health care, and for reasons that I will not repeat on this podcast. You should care about that healthcare plan and then Tommy Lorraine came for. And she was like, no, you really don't want any of this. And I just think that we should be getting a lot more straightforward to the point like clear-cut political commentary from everybody, including Cardi B. I'm glad Cardi B used her platform to raise awareness about. What's happening? Just as a technical point. Obama didn't shut down the government that was Ted Cruz. But point true story it happened during the Obama years. Yes. There was a lot of feedback about. There's been a lot of feedback about the way Cardi delivers her messages that you know, she also is really a big fan of the president in knows all the presidents. And and when that came out people like, oh, my God who knew that Cardi B was smart and say just because people don't use the language that you use to describe the world they live in doesn't make their perspective on their points. Any less valid in. If you're around people who say that people don't matter because they don't use the same language like that is dangerous. You gotta check that that part of our work as activists is to remember that people are like always learning the languages, but people often have the experiences up front step further and say that Cardi B herself as a wordsmith right in the ways in which she uses words are intentional and create a conversation around which is talking about their frankly wouldn't happen if she used sort of a more mundane set of words, so in many ways as a political strategy the way that she talks about these issues is far superior to what most politicians are doing or more technical like not just mundane ripen more. Technical if she was talking about like regressive taxes at did. I like she can say a different way. I think that's what tests also done. That's really brilliant. When she was like, you only make ten dollars, and you keep the ten dollars because you only made ten dollars and you're like, yes. Like, wait, explain tax policy in a way that like anybody can understand..
