"And Shannon Taylor of the stone foxes on KNBR police force leader thank you for joining us today Schering and please don't stop what really just the moments right break down is that I look at my my little kids six and five years old and some of the things that my kids both love to draw our rainbows right I love to draw and the reason is because of all of the different spectrums of color in the rainbow and it just baffles me that we did in your story that five year old girl it's almost like I don't blame her I blame her parents I blame her lame it starts with who she I'm only getting great starts and it and that is that is my duty as a as a father Holly your duty as a father standing your duty as an uncle and maybe a father some day to meet the same would you like it is our duty at home like I'm still boggles my mind that the the color of somebody's skin is is is is how people are are judged it's it's just so farfetched for me and I you know I read something on me it was a story I forget what publication but and I I it was something where I read I'm like wow you know I feel like I'm pretty tuned in but it was a gentleman talking about how when he goes running with his wife African American guy when he was running with his wife she he always runs in front of her because he's running behind her he doesn't want people to think that that he's chasing the woman I I I I just it just floored me I was like I can't believe that that that that poor guy and obviously that time's up by many many people that have that have to think that way yeah you know and I you know I well well well tone is unfortunate you know what I was fortunate enough to be raised by my mother and father mmhm and I can remember them telling me time and time again to love everyone even when people don't love dear mmhm be confident in who you are because people won't be competent in yeah don't be ashamed of the color of your skin because there will be people that will be ashamed of you so that's the conversation I used to have with my parents at five six seven eight growing up that yeah because they were prepared me for a world they didn't know what ever change yeah I wanted as so make sure that number one we are confident in who we are we make no excuses and we work hard for everything yeah we have anything you want my parents always dream big what whatever you want to be yeah but I don't see people who look like me in this field I don't see you know a person of color as the president United States not knowing in my adulthood we will have one yeah I chose to get in the field of the field of sports which is predominantly male I knew it was not going to be a lot of people who look like me I work behind the scenes so I never walked into a building a workplace lacking competence but I walked into the building that I have a whole community I'm carrying all my back well and I have a gender because I'm a woman so it's almost like a double whammy I'm a black woman yeah yeah I did that because I did not want the person to follow me that looked like me to come after me their position be jeopardized are they not given a chance because I made the mistake think about that and not because that they're given a chance because of the color of their skin but employers don't see the color of their skin but they remember you know what the young lady to Nika work hard issues good the hiring you let me give her a chance I love that that's great cool cool anecdotes and you can buy the weights in because mothers are Gaston the polymeric podcast with creative Tony and she had a kill shot what's on your mind I want I want to well first of all I wanted to say that you know I I feel like we've been hearing people say things like wow I can't believe what's going on in like like it's only happening now and obviously from the story of your childhood and since sixteen nineteen and far before that this is this is something that's just being filmed on iPhones now not that it wasn't happening you know and to make a you were speaking to the fact that you're a black woman and I was just thinking you know before you came on today then you're in a small amount of time you've seen the me too movement happened and you seen this movement happened and like a span of what what is it three years something like very short and I want to know have you have you personally felt results of the me too movement and do you see and and you know of course it depends on how much pressure everybody puts on and how long that pressure lasts but do you see this generation as as a generation that will actually make systemic change and are you feeling some of that or small bits of that from the me too movement and maybe from this I wouldn't say results I would say exposure not a lot of things more are getting exposed today where it's going I don't know because again like I said the messages are getting all mixed up yeah all are seeing what they want to see even if the person that is pro testing it's telling you what they're protesting about are you calling Capranica if he's telling you he's taking me kind of risk when you the you'll get all your needs when you pray higher do you think see what I'm gonna say their need when there's an injured player on both yeah that's a great point you know it's not out of that the fifty yard line up to the game they'll take a knee and say a prayer together sleep so to me going to build on that so that's down to maybe a great example of this kind of systematic racism because demand is deep into their like yourself I would also just immersed in this you know this is always been very important to me race relations but this week and last week especially like yourself I'm reading everything I can well I want to know what those people think it is these people that are filled with eight why they filled with hate I want to know what's going on with them and why this is happening also trying to balance it all out I'm watching all kinds of coverage but the thing you said about happenings in this what's interesting to me and sad and depressing and frustrating and yeah it's okay to be mad people are a lot of I've been I got extremely angry a lot of us are angry that one right thing Nick said when this started he goes I'm taking a knee to protest police brutality in the use of excessive force that's it that's what happened from there with the worst all year long strong black guy got his message hi Jack they hijacked his lessons Japanese supply cabinet case America all terrorists captured it like he message to me that's just that's just like slapping more racism on the original reasons it's like I'm not real racism so to your point I think it is it's very confusing it's very overwhelming it's incredibly deep the tentacles of this thing man all you need is a little different from doing that because it was the only one at the very highest level possible we saw some really troubling stuff this week we saw some really troubling stuff yeah that speaks to how deep it goes man that speaks to how deep it goes here's the thing here's where I have eight years rival but I do there is also like I have a positive message today we can all do what we can do and it does start the house today my parents raised me right away I'm lucky to like you say you're forty forty seven down when I was a kid and he taught me right from wrong and I took that out into the world I'm giving that to my kids too who's got time for this crap in twenty twenty to reduce this whole thing is so stupid why is this happening why are we still having this conversation what he said to make about here's my positive message my positive message is I really believe this I swear to god I believe it needs to make sure your nephew's showing up on the windows of my guys yeah turning your kids my kids Shannon maybe something you have to I think you're going to do it right I am really really believe that these guys are going to come up and they're gonna know okay almost always not okay great schisms not okay like this stuff growing up in well I think the most politically aware error that you can imagine and I think they're going to take the right message into the world I really do believe that and that's what I'm really really hoping my sister and brother in law have to have a sit down conversation with my older two nephews who are thirteen and eleven about all what's going on and not to fear and you know you guys know my nephews are my heart I don't have my own children yet but my nephews are my heart in my sister and my brother in law recently moved into a new neighborhood and you know they walk my nephews around the neighborhood you know not just for them to get familiar with it never before the neighborhood to be familiar with yeah right I mean that's the importance if you have you have had people as young as twelve years old to me are right the two thousand fourteen playing outside with a toy gun and that officer shoots and kills him an officer by the way who in his previous job at a different police department was found to be assigned to perform his duties but he did not put that on his application when he applied for the Cleveland police department this is why my nephew know why they don't play water they have no toy guns they have been given presents that's what no sorry we can't accept that yeah Sirius will be maybe like all was not that serious come on kids can be kids no first start here this is a serious matter angel yeah.

"Henrik Ibsen's a doll's house the original play deals with the fate of a married woman called Nora during the nineteenth century she seems to be the perfect wife and mother she's beautiful she's beautiful everything's always in its price but the secret from her past comes back to haunt her and then her life unravels and over the course of three days she has to fight to protect herself and her family all she risks losing everything they use transpose the plane to India in eighteen seventy nine and we have needed she's a young Bengali woman she's married to Tom an Englishman he's working for the British colonial administration in Calcutta and I'm just going to play you a little clip from some of the action on stage that people get a sense of these two characters as I'm a little skylark are here cheer of being away yes it is. hello this my little squealed in home just now. you know they're about to open a new horse drawn tram line here the busy laying down the tracks. his most successful from the Lustron by they tried to put in no one used it they've dug up all of the road in both as a street. don't. come see what I've bought. all. have you been out buying jewels again. choose don't be cruel talk. anyway got to be a bit more generous this year generous yes reckless. Eliot callin as Toma an engine of us and as in the every they cease to Nika works beautifully in the setting you've placed thank you what made you want to do in the first place well I've always loved the original it's an adult's house I think I saw it when I was a child entangled in Cork off the so I remember thinking it was quite well it was in Bangor it's cool little party such as a little dog yes it'll house I'm still have a toll house and even though no way is cold and you know it's now outside assisted in the heat of Kolkata it does seem to work quite well and it's actually about looking at the relationship between India and England treat this marriage we just heard in that clip ten weeks home is exhausted sizing Neeru is this fabulous play thing to be admired he uses language the infanta Lois's or exhaust sizes to my Indian princess she's manipulative five years is a feminine one but what you highlight is not chanced male female in a quality but race yes faith she's given up her Hinduism and become Christian yes yes and then this clause cost I mean this is richer in my opinion then if Sinn Thames of stuff to money when it's it's a version isn't it and is it isn't this is more let I mean I think what I was really interested in was the whole thing about looking at the relationship between them because there were a lot of it indeed women that marriage Englishmen at that time there were many many more than we realize and it and in many cases that was successful but I was to be quite interesting to look at look at race through a marriage rather than look at you know the history of colonialism and you know the nationalists and of Mahatma Gandhi so it was really just about focusing on that relationship which is a huge fund and the beauty of it is that is a classic play which is beautifully structured so it's about me putting my stamp on it I'm. how much did you'll bring goalie background inform the play then attack today I mean my I was brought up in a very very Bingley family my great uncle within a script was a freedom fighter whose actually executed by the British in nineteen thirty one so there's a long history of socialism and nationalism in our family and every time I went back to into was Winston Cup crosses so I knew it from not just myself but from through my parents and my grandparents so it's felt very easy to transpose it to court Carter the character of Krishna is a which as a Christian is the friend of news they've known each other for years so will she be dressed all in white as is described in the Hindu tradition yes what did you want to tell us by putting a we do on this day well I'm interested with as because I remember my mother lost my father lost a husband she immediately went upstairs and came down wearing a white sorry all have bangles often aura adornment soften the thinking well of you doing here I think my brother I sent it back up stairs again but this was in you know any twenty years ago but Sir in those days a which I was not allowed to eat any meat was not allowed to be seen out in public so I thought it was a quite interesting again the thing about women's rights there was an interesting thing to look at because that she at the time things were changing for Indian women and with those particularly will beginning to be brought back into the house but before that it was seen as a curse or even being friend on to the funeral piracy has been seen that the yes so the place seems to me to be Pasanen today the Indian society sadly no soul yeah levels how will this play work globally well this is shocking ending which even today is still shocking it is an interesting thing that never never never gets old and ultimately the play is about women's emancipation is about women's. ending up for herself and saying no enough is enough or saying what about me what about my identity and so that is that is just as current as ever walls so how far have we really come then well I think we have come quite a distance what we need is a co pay any quality it's a so that there is still that thing going on that actually we we have a ways to go. and I just want to go back for a moment to the whole idea of it not saying the is this transposed to India but because we have an Indian woman of marrying a British man the way he when he loses his temper at some point that he reverts to type I mean that's an awful thing to say but certainly the love he's a little Indian princess is not so little Indian princess she comes just on his show you the way that he envisions Indians to be facts yes still shocked me yes he because there was some of which I will I will terra he's an yeah and and I think that thought that is the moment when my character of Nero into tolls house turns because how could the man that existed sizes are enough to so much how pretty cool that these names I'm not so sure okay but I see that happens in marriages. several rows of houses stuff that comes out of people's mouths shocking so it's it's not necessarily the end of the world but it it obviously dramatically it works very well yeah it really does to make it thank you and if you're coming to London at dole's has opens on September the sixth and runs until October the fifth at the lyric theatre in Hammersmith nice roof terrace the drinks by the way the engine revs festivals all over I was there and is always it was hectic crazy and there's so much to see you can't possibly fifty two lane I'm quality is a huge part of the month long festivities it's the place to go to spoke to Morris Stella's Malawian comedians Elise such upon the friend of the art sound and host of our annual new year comedy specials has just finished performing his own show in Edinburgh and he joins me now on the line Dilley so you'll show was blah blah black list how did it go it went very well I was delighted and what does the blah blah black list of the title refers to sold you may have noticed in the last two or three years so many people we idolized have been blacklisted or disgraced either by being a racist on Twitter or being revealed to have been sexual harassers so I started talking about all these people and then it expands into looking at the idea of why do we even idolize people that comedians come from all over the world to perform an exam right in the hope all sometimes being discovered a doping catapulted to the next level who did you see in the way of international performance one of the ones I loved was I I know about power who is from India very brilliant at performer and he did I really absurd but wonderful show called democracy and disco dancing also the central problem in the movie is that the difficult on something by mid tone. his model gets electrocuted by it gets all. after which.
