"Michigan freshman class is limited. If it was an unlimited number of seats, they could always say, well, let's take more, and it's not going to affect any other group. But if you get more blacks and or Hispanics at Yale, that means less whites sudden less Asian Americans. That's an algebraic necessity. You can not raise the level of underrepresented groups without lowering the level of the over represented groups. And so here what's going on is it seems to me that this kind of ethnic hostility isn't so much racism in the classic sense. I mean, I think it's very revealing that Charles blow in this article never defines racism. He never says what racism is. Racism is a belief in the biological superiority of one group over another. Now where in this exchange, acrimonious though it is insulting though it is, people are calling each other's names, but where is racism? Where is it that nori Martinez was supposedly the worst offender? Where does she say or even imply that Hispanics are biologically superior to black? She never does that. She basically doesn't like blacks. And what happens is, by the way, the feeling is often reciprocal ethnic groups jostling for power often to develop a certain kind of animus or hostility to one another. So that I think is a more accurate reading of what's going on than Charles blows.

Ideas and information at Wallace foundation dot org. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Leila fault in Washington, D.C.. And I'm a Martinez in Culver City, California. The controversy engulfing the Los Angeles city council has opened up long simmering racial tensions in the city. After days of mounting pressure, the former leader of the Los Angeles city council resigned her seat yesterday. Nori Martinez was one of the most powerful politicians in the city until she was caught on a secret recording making racist remarks during a conversation with two of her council colleagues. The scandal is upending politics in LA as demands for more resignations continue. We're joined now by NPR's Adrian florido, who is in Los Angeles and has been covering the story. Has been facing calls to resign from the city council for days now, but until yesterday, she had resisted what finally did. Well, the pressure a had just become overwhelming and the calls for her resignation came from as high up as The White House. When nori Martinez was heard saying on this leaked tape, we're just about the worst things you could say as a politician in a city like Los Angeles, where cross racial coalitions are so important in politics. She used racist language to talk about black people indigenous Mexican immigrants and others. And this all happened during a conversation with two council colleagues all of them Latinos about how to increase their political power through the city's redistricting process while diluting the power of black voters. So people were really outraged. And that outrage was very loud in Los Angeles. Now that she has resigned, though, how are people responding? Well, they're happy, of course, but they're saying that it's not enough. Last night I was in south Los Angeles at a meeting that community organizers called to bring black and Latino residents together to diffuse tension given that this racism came out of the mouths of Latino politicians. People at this meeting were celebrating Martinez's resignation and the resignation of a union leader who was also part of that conversation, but they said that they were going to keep demanding that the other two council members on that tape, Kevin de Leon and Gil Seville also resigned. Okay. Y'all want Kevin de Leon out, right? Yeah. All right, so Adrian clearly this is not over yet, but in what other ways is this racism scandal being felt in LA? Well, in a lot of ways, LA is electing a new mayor in less than a month and a debate between the two candidates this week focused mostly on which of the two congresswoman Karen Bass or businessman Rick Caruso is best equipped to heal the city's racial divides, as I mentioned a lot of community groups are working to ensure that racial tensions don't flare up. The state attorney general also announced yesterday that he is launching an investigation into the city's redistricting process since that's what Martina's and her colleagues were discussing on this tape. So Adrian, I don't know if healing starts yet, but I mean, what's next here? Because just things are just so wrong. Well, something that a lot of people here are saying is going to be required before healing can start is that these other two council members must resign. And whether they will is a big question, they, along with Martinez have been the most high profile Latino leaders in this city, and so if they do step down, how does that reshape Latino political power here? I'm also sensing an urgency among Latino organizers to start addressing the anti blackness and colorism that's common among Latinos, but rarely discussed. And that's something that black people in LA are saying they want to. Keanu Selena, a black organizer, told me yesterday that she wants more honest talk about the fact that it's not only white people who harbor anti black racism. And were caught up in it, but what happens when it dies down? Are we going to go back to denying anti black racism? She said she hopes not, but also knows that that will require a lot of work.

"This week, the Los Angeles city council made national headlines for all the wrong reasons. In the wake of that explosive leaked audio that we've been talking about all morning long, there were several racist comments in that conversation where you did hear the council president talking to two other council members, a leaked recording of racist comments resulting in the Los Angeles city council president's resignation, also provides a look into city hall's racial rivalries. In a closed door meeting, city council president nori Martinez made racist and disparaging remarks about colleagues to fellow council members, Kevin de Leon Gil Seville and a well-known labor leader. They were trying to figure out a way to draw city council districts in order to keep an expand Latino political power, but the conversation quickly devolves into crass and vulgar comments about oaxacans and koreatown, anti blackness, Armenians, Jews, and even more revolting language, pointed at city councilmen Mike Bonn and son, who's black. White guy with the little black kid was risk behaved, as they mean who has. The kids bouncing off the air and walls on the throat. Practically tipping it over. The conversation happened back in October 2021, but this recording wasn't released until just a few weeks ago when it appeared on Reddit. The political fallout over the leaked audio has been swift. Nori Martinez has resigned now as president of the LA city council after making racist remarks. So she has resigned from this very powerful position, but it is important to point out that she is still a member of the city council, at least at this point.

"And I'm Leila faldon. Russia is not the only country making threats of nuclear strikes. North Korea is telling a story about its recent missile tests. It is conducted 7 rounds of tests in the past couple of weeks, and the government now says those launches all simulated attacks on South Korea using tactical nuclear weapons. North Korea also restated its position that it's not interested in dialog with the United States or South Korea. NPR's Anthony Kuhn is in Seoul and joins us now high Anthony. Hi, Leila. So tell us more about what North Korea had to say about its recent tests. North Korea state media reported Monday that all 7 of these recent tests involve nuclear capable, short range intermediate range and submarine launch ballistic missiles, and the test simulated wartime attacks on South Korean ports, airports, and command facilities, and leader Kim Jong-un personally oversaw some of the launches. What state media reported about the intentions were that the drills were supposed to show the effectiveness and readiness of the north's tactical nuclear forces, and also send a warning to the U.S. and South Korea at a time when the U.S. has been ramping up its own military exercises with South Korea and Japan. And when did North Korea get tactical nuclear weapons and what does it change? Experts believe that North Korea probably decided to get tactical nukes in 2019 after a failed summit in Hanoi between then president Trump and Kim Jong-un, and that Kim publicly announced his intention to get these weapons in January of 2021. Now E Hong, who's a researcher at the Korea institute for defense analyses, argues that these weapons are not new, what North Korea is trying to do is deploy them in new ways so that they can avoid being detected or intercepted by the U.S. and South Korea. Here's what she said. She says, I think the variety of launches betray North Korean military units fear of Kim Jong-un, who is demanding that the military come up with solutions and tactics. She adds that these tests are a result of that fear and in a way betray their vulnerabilities. So basically, she's skeptical that the north's tactical nuclear forces are as effective as Pyongyang claims. But do North Korea's tactical nukes make nuclear war more likely? Arguably, yes, North Korea recently updated its nuclear doctrine and wrote that doctrine into law and Lee argues that these tests were meant to show that the military can enforce that law, the law says that North Korea can use its nukes preemptively. That is, it can launch them not because it's been attacked, but simply because it's losing in a conventional war. And previously, Kim Jong-un has been the only one with the authority to launch nukes, but now Kim apparently intends to delegate authority to use tactical nukes to frontline military commanders so that they can win on the battlefield and even if Kim is killed in a decapitation strike, North Korea can still retaliate. At this point is North Korea's nuclear arsenal complete. I know, experts have been saying for some time that North Korea's plan was first to develop tactical nukes, then progressed to upgrading intercontinental ballistic missiles, ICBMs and nuclear tests. In other words, they want to show first that they can hit U.S. Military bases in South Korea, Japan and Guam, and then show that they can hit the U.S. mainland soul in Washington have been watching for signs of these tests and a logical time to do them would probably be after China's Communist Party Congress in late October. NPR's Anthony kune joining us from Seoul. Thank you. Thank you, Leila. Los Angeles is roiling in scandal as the city council president nori Martinez stepped down after being caught making racist remarks in a leaked recording. Yeah, someone recorded her conversation in which she was discussing redistricting with two other council members Kevin de Leon and Gil sedillo. They were talking about how to keep a strong Latino presence on the LA city council. Now some people are calling for all three members to resign. For more, we're joined by KQED's Saul Gonzalez in Los Angeles in just a warning. We're going to be discussing the racist things that Martinez said. Hi Saul. Hi. Okay, so just so just tell us exactly what was said. And what happened in these recordings? Okay, let me make this really simple. There's a lot was said. In audio obtained by the LA times, then council president Nouri Martinez compared the adopted black son of a white city council colleague to a changi to that Spanish for little monkey and she uses this phrase little short dark people. That's an apparent reference to oaxacan immigrants. She also calls the LA county DA as being, quote, with the blacks. Now, council members, Kevin de Leon, and Gil Seville, were also part of this conversation in which the group discussed redistricting and Latino representation on the council, and there was a very prominent LA county labor leader also present. And so a lot of this racism directed at black people, how has the black community reacting? Well, many of the black community are reacting with just anger and despondency and sadness to these comments. Here's how Irma hall would a black labor activist in LA told me how she felt we spoke at a church in south Los Angeles where black religious and civil rights leaders had gathered. Her. Angry. Disappointed. I won't say the rest because I'm in the house of God, but I'm very disappointed. Betrayed, some are also expressing concerns about how genuine some Latino leaders had been when they've talked about forming black brown alliances around common issues like economic justice and police reform. In the past, there have been tensions between these communities over such issues as immigration and jobs. And there have been instances of Latino gangs targeting black residents in some neighborhoods. And the black community has this long-term anxiety about really their place in Los Angeles. They've seen their size, the size of their population shrink relative to other communities. They're now under 10% of LA's population, while of course the Latino population has boomed over the last generation or two and Latinos now account for roughly half of LA's population. Yeah, in the comments, we're also made during a conversation about redistricting and Latino political power, so can you give us some context about the political dynamics here? Well, you know it all orbits around political clout, right? Where district lines are drawn, is that's incredibly important to different racial and ethnic groups who want to make sure that they can elect a person who represents their interest and their communities and experiences at city hall. Now people in favor of coalition building, they don't want that redistricting to become a zero sum game between black people and Latinos in LA, although the council members who were captured on tape seemed to be talking in just those terms, mainly protecting the position in cloud of Latinos that city hall.
