"That fallen soldiers. Galloway poses a slave, man, could you imagine that? Can you imagine that? You're a freed man. But you want to fight in this war, you want to help free people that look like you. So Galloway pose as a slave to gather in tolerant intelligence from confederate troops. He set up a spy network in parts of the south. Again, an encourage thousands of enslaved men who had sought protection to take up arms. That is so fascinating. So fascinating. He never learned to read, but used his powerful oratory and organized skills to fight for black people's rights and citizens, Galloway was part of a delegation of 5 southern black leaders to The White House to demand that Lincoln support black civil rights. He organized state and local chapters of the national equal rights league and in September of 1865, he helped to lead a freed people's convention. In 1868, he became one of the first black men elected to the North Carolina legislature and fighting violent voter suppression by the KKK, the Democrat KKK. That was, you guys might not know that, but Democrats formed the KKK in order to fight against black and white Republicans alike. Terrorize them. Galloway, who faced numerous assassination threats, always had pistols at his waist. And led an armed black militia in Wilmington to counter the continent intimidation. He and two other black men won election as state senators while 18 black men became representatives and the North Carolina General Assembly of 1868 to 1869. During his tenure, Galloway voted for the 14th and Fifteenth Amendment. Man, granting granting citizenship and suffrage rights to black man. So that so that we could vote. Absolutely amazing. Now there's Frederick Douglass. Frederick Douglass, he was the pushing for black recruitment and obviously we've heard of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, but we had not heard of these other gentlemen. And this is just important good stuff here. By the time the Civil War began in 1861, Frederick Douglass was one of the most famous black men in the U.S., a prominent voice for freedom, human rights and social reform and exceptional order and writer of whose autobiography autobiographies that detailed his slavery and escape became best sellers at the time unbelievable. Douglass was a national abolitionist who leader who for some 20 years had the ear of the country's leaders. Early in the Civil War, Douglas clashed with Abraham Lincoln president Abraham Lincoln. For not allowing formerly enslaved people to enlist, Lincoln had been reluctant to arm black men and allow them to serve in the union military forces in part due to racism and also for fear that outrage border states would join the secession. Ensuring the unions lost. And listen, guys, we have to look at this stuff in the context of history, right? They had to win this war. The union had to win this war. But as union defeats mounted and manpower dwindle, black men formed units of their own in the south in 1862 an official call to arms to black man came in early 1863. Douglas with other prominent abolitionists helped recruit black soldiers for the union. He traveled thousands of miles to recruitment meetings, lauding the benefits of service and ending many of his speeches by leading the audience in quote, John Brown's body, close quote. That was a popular Union Army song. He published frequently on the topic and his newspaper Douglas monthly. Wow, with articles and broadsides like, quote, men of color, two arms, close quote, and quote, why should a color man enlist close quote? Two of his sons, Charles and Lewis, were among the first to enlist in the famed 54th Massachusetts infantry regiment. Never heard of it. This is so frustrating. The second African American battalion that saw extensive service in the war commanded by white officers, a third son, Frederick junior, was recruited for the regiment like his father for Douglas wearing a uniform of a soldier carried great symbolism of a man's worthiness for freedom and a full slate of civil rights quote an eagle on his button and a musket on his shoulder and his bullets in his pocket. Douglas said, also, he said, quote, there is no power on earth, which can deny that he has earned the right of citizenship and the United States close.

"Not what the framers want They better historical evidence is that this independence that legislature theory is something that is not in line with original understanding of the constitution And I'm sure that there are going to be a lot of arguments aimed at justice Amy Coney Barrett who is an originalist who has not weighed in on this question And who might care about that historical record For textualists originalists on the court which is the better interpretation according to your thinking Well I think that the richer understanding of the constitution would reject this very strong independent state legislature doctrine and understand the state legislatures act within the context of their own state laws including state Supreme Court supplying state constitutions And the claim in North Carolina to me is exceptionally weak because the provision of the state constitution that guarantees these voting rights was actually one that the state legislature had approved in 1970 when it had amended its constitution So there's all kinds of reasons why the North Carolina General Assembly That's the legislative body there should lose in this case should have come back to the Supreme Court But I'm not at all confident that they will lose I just think that they should Finally so the Democrats win here in the short term but now this is something that they should be concerned about in the long term Oh I think absolutely yes This is something that really could have impact beyond redistricting as well It could apply any time a state legislature is rule is challenged as violating a state constitutional provision and it's going to be applied in a federal election Thanks so much for lending us your expertise Rick That's Rick Hassan a professor at UC Irvine law school Coming up next on the Bloomberg law show the justices side with the defendant in a dispute over a law targeting career criminals who carry guns I'm Jean Grasso and you're listening to Bloomberg The.

"We're just chatting this morning peak calendar in his in his usual spot hanging out with us. And I would be remiss if I didn't touch on one of the big national stories dividing, you know, literally everyone on the planet. Uh and that, of course. We even have a little intro for it. That, of course, is what exactly is up with Nicki Minaj is cousins, friends. Testicles, got balls, big balls, Such big calls balls and he's got big files. She's got fake ball. Hey, How did we get to a place where the real estate over what making even Ah Zhi thinks and is suddenly what people care about. I mean, the the fact that everyone will fight over every scrap in every square inch of anything. It has to be politicized having to do with covid when in reality Who knows? Maybe the guy did have an adverse reaction. Or maybe he has an STD and lied to his fiancee ahead of the wedding. But it's become to the point where the White House wants to have a conference call with her, and health officials in Trinidad are denouncing her, and then she retweeted, Tucker Carlson, and then the Internet exploded. Mhm. Um, just Health. How glad are you that it's Friday? You know, Uh, well, uh, well, I don't. I don't know, because I think you're assuming that this doesn't get coverage on the Sunday morning Talk show circuit. And no, No, no. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, right. Yeah. So, Yeah. No, it's I will say like, I'm uh I'm of two minds of this on the one hand like I really don't care. You know, it's pop culture figure, you know, arguing About stupid things, and so like, I don't care. But on the other hand, this is where so much of the American populace is. This is where they live like they may not even have been aware of a vaccine until Nicki Minaj just talked about it like that. There are people walking around that may not even be aware there's a pandemic, right? They're just so completely out of touch and divorced from all news. And so this is where they live in. So maybe I don't know, Maybe it It brings some awareness and the fight brings some awareness or something. I think that's why the White House is kind of treating this like it's a serious Attack. And maybe it is for folks on the left because they own the culture. And so when they get somebody from their camp, questioning what they're telling them is the science and the data, then yeah, they see it as something that has to be addressed. I find it to be ludicrous but also You know, battle no kind of informative illustrative of the way The left operates in the culture. Yeah, but why would they even care from a culture perspective when there are literally getting away with The spend the very same disparity of impact that we hear over and over and over again as it pertains to most of these vaccination regulations, you see the video of the that manager up in New York, throwing that black family out of the restaurant. Who was he was? Yeah, he was exerting religious exemption. I don't know whether I don't even know how you determine that you know, frankly, under New York law, they require a letter or some something, but ultimately either, is there Is that vibe right? That vibe that we're supposed to always interpret in these stories like if somebody in a gorilla mask throws an egg at a black political candidate It used to be. That was obviously a hate crime. And now it's not NFL if, if a white manager through black patron out that was a hate crime Well, now it's not So, yes, it's defacto, obvious prime official proof of racism and systemic racism at that, and we are all guilty then of something Because of this one example right, except, of course. If it's a Republican lawmaker or candidate that gets an egg thrown at them by a white woman in a gorilla mask or if it's a It's a black person, asserting, um, that they've got the religious exemption for the vaccine. But people need to understand. There are in fact, two rulebooks here. Right. There are two sets of rules. That's why the charge of hypocrisy doesn't work. Like how long have you been doing Radio? Right. 20 years Now we're selling you like this is this is always been sort of the fight like, Hey, look, they've got a double standard. Hey, look, they're employing a different standard for Republicans, then. The Democrats, but that's always been the way and they literally don't care. And so I'm saying this doesn't move the needle. It doesn't make them say Oh, yeah, You know, you're right. We really should have a consistent standard. They're not going to do that. So like, what's the point? Except to tell folks on the right like Yes. You're not crazy. You're being gassed. Let there is in fact two sets of rules. But beyond that, there's no referee that's going to come in and say Okay, Okay, Democrats, you need to play by the same set of rules because, as I said, they control the culture. They're not going to play by the same set of rules. The Charlotte City Council. A prime example of that is this whole thing, By the way, this whole thing with we have to wait for redistricting to hold local elections. So we're putting stuff off a year has has I Why? There's not more pushback on this. I mean, that's that's in the in most situations when somebody who's supposed to be elected says You know what? I don't feel like leaving right now. It turns into kind of what happened in Haiti, right? Which is what that was for. People don't know. That's essentially the The president was assassinated down there had come in and said You know what? I kind of like it here? I think I'm gonna stick around extra years and and it. It turned into a whole thing. Charlotte City Council now Is sitting here talking about utilizing partisan affiliation and racial data to draw district lines or what some would point out is the exact same thing. The North Carolina General Assembly just faced a 10 year lawsuit over Right. So there's the double standard right from Democrats, right? The same people the same political party that has been arguing for a decade that you should not be able to use racial data to draw lines and that you should not be more recently. You should not be using partisan data like electoral outcomes or party affiliation. They've been saying this for years Now they've been filing lawsuits about it and The Charlotte City Council, just for folks who don't know it's 11 members. They got seven districts to are represented by Republicans, the other five or Democrats and every other seat. There's four other at large seats. Those are all Democrat, too. So it's a 9 to 2 Democrat majority there now drawing the lines and they set the criteria to say We're going to look at population size number one and number two is going to be party affiliation and use racial data as well. And they're trying to Cut out one of the two Republican seats. Or as Democrats like to call it fair maps. That's a fair map to the Democrats. They can get a thing at a 10 to 1 majority in Charlotte. Versus at 92, because you just.

"I live in north carolina. Judges have issued a ruling that will reinstate voting rights for around fifty six thousand people with felony convictions. Under a new ruling. Felons who are still on probation or parole can now cast a ballot and if this holds more than fifty five thousand people who have not been able to register to vote beforehand. We'll be able to now just to be clear. This is not a radical fringe policy. This is a position consistent with the voting rules in twenty three other states and the district of columbia but this expansion of voting rates does make north carolina nearly unique among former confederate states. The rest have a variety of more restrictive laws. That ban formerly incarcerated citizens from accessing. The ballot at the heart of these restrictions is race in north carolina. Twenty one percent of the voting age population is black but black people make up forty. Two percent of those disenfranchised by the felony based voting restrictions for voting rights advocates. That means this is a moment of celebration. It's also just the latest moment in a long struggle. For voting rights in the tar heels need in eighteen seventy five. John became the first black metal elected to the us. Congress north carolina but he was defeated after a single term as many gains of the reconstruction era were rolled back in the eighteen. Seventy seven compromise and the struggle continued starting in eighteen. Ninety four and interracial governing coalition known as the fusion movement gained power across the state and it showed how poor people can work across racial lines to gain power through the vote but then in eighteen ninety eight but white racist overthrew the elected interracial fusion government of wilmington north carolina in a violent insurrection.

"We can't as much as i'd love to walk into the north carolina general assembly and get rid of our Republican led speaker and senate majority leader. I can't and they're gonna pass what they wanna pass. I can't control what they do. But i can control what i do in the senate or the house in the us. Congress one point five trillion or zero. What's your choice. So i guess the obvious answer is one point five then but i think that this whole conversation. That democrats are having in terms of thinking bold really pushing for these big packages. I think at the end of the day if we do get something like mansions. Bill passed or this one point five trillion dollar. Bill has instead of the original price tag. Three trillion will settle for the conversation. That democrats are having that young people are having now. Is i think change how we think about how no one we are in power. I think we need to confront systemic issues on or else. I don't think that we have time to do it if if democrats lose the house in twenty twenty two. We won't have any transfer i think. Are we in power but are we in power because we have a majority of people who agree with us or are we in power only because they really only two options and either have to put an hour behind your name or a d. Behind your name and folks like jon tester and kirstin cinema and joe manchin chose the over. The are but they don't really agree with the cory. Booker bernie sanders of the world. I mean if we had if we had more than just those two letters would they be these or would they be you know whatever the other options were it. Should we have more than two parties. Honestly i think that we should have more than two parties and part of the reason is because of that issue of we think of in terms of democrats republicans independents but sally. I don't think democrats and republicans. But you know. I just don't think in our world right now. We become so polarized and so partisan that's i think the reality that we're living in that we separate ourselves in these chew camps in republican and democratic terms and therefore that's what power means to us now and so i think we have to kind of use it we have. I don't think no third parties really going to be successful but until that happens. I think we have to deal with the cancer in and kind of try to us where we fall in the best way possible and i think for democrats that right now is unfortunately because of the slim majorities we have but is it fair to look at someone likely joe mansion or care cinema and say just because they chose to have the d. behind their name their bad disease because they don't agree with elizabeth warren or they're bad dis because they don't agree with cory booker in that same situation i can't trump himself came out just today. Criticizing a whole bunch people in his own party for daring to sign onto this infrastructure. Bill calling them rhinos. You know we've heard that. I guess dino's too but hear rhinos more often and i think to myself. Would you really rather them not be republicans. Would you really rather than take that are and get rid of it and put a d. d there instead Ah do we not need to stop expecting everyone to groupthink. Isn't it okay. That joe manchin is shouldn't we be thankful that he's a democrat on some issues even if we don't agree with him on all of them were. I don't think we're expecting him to be a democrat issues. It's just the issues that i think are challenging our country. The most voting rights climate. Change like you. Do you think the voting rights and climate change are the most important things to your parents know. But they're the issues that i think. Take the most to reform in the sense that these are big issues that takes his stomach. Change are the most important to most people. I mean i can understand why you're y. The younger generation would see. Climate change is a very systemic a very important and pressing issue I can understand why someone who had lost their family to gun. Violence would see gun control as a pressing and primary issue. But aren't we asking people to have our priorities. Put our priorities. I like if i went when before. Gay marriage was legal. If i expected someone to vote for the candidate who supported same sex marriage. Wouldn't that be me saying you need to put my needs before your own. Is it okay to do that. I mean i it. Voting is important to me. And to you and i love that you love it and i'm with you on most of the issues but i wonder if we have gotten too selfish and maybe younger generations have gotten to a point where they're so used to having what they want right in front of them on twitter or instagram. Or they're you know any entertainment option. They want on youtube that we forget that my priorities might not be somebody else's priorities. How much do we need to be reminded of that. I think you definitely have a point. That the reason why i think voting rights is such a big issue and why. I think we're in such a big debate about this. Is i think because it just matters so much just for the foundation of our democracy our constitution our system of government and so while it may not matter to someone who is maybe a living out in wyoming alaska. I think just if we want to build up from there we need to establish some sort of consensus on where our democracy stands and have at least some sort of agreement on something as fundamental as infrastructure climate change voting rights and get that set before we can address other issues and find consensus where were fundamental rights matter director. You just said we need to get consensus on infrastructure. But thirty minutes ago you weren't satisfied with the consensus that they found on infrastructure. More more we have to get these issues addressed trying to but they're not bold enough for up old enough. They're not bright enough for some folks right. so do they need. Do we need to stop expecting everything to be our way. Listen if i had my way we'd spend an acetone tunnel infrastructure. We change the constitution to ban to make a gerrymandering constitutionally not possible and campaign finance. we'd toll. I mean i'm with you on us so many so many of these things but at some point don't we have to realize shat as much as i want one hundred percent of things my way like if i won't even accept ninety five percent of what i want then i'm not gonna get any anything right at some point. Do we have to dream and hope and push and keep striving for the bold stuff while also accepting damn. We got a little bit of. We got a win here. And we got one point five trillion dollars. Flynn had we not been in the majority. We would have gotten jack ship right. I mean because the that is the alternative not being in power. And you know if we've gotten rid of the filibuster when that day comes and god forbid it's gonna if we've gotten rid of the filibuster than we can..

"To that law lawyer. It's Josh Whitaker and Joe Hammer of Whittaker and Hammer here with you, Um We're going to talk about the innocence Commission. Joe tell me a little bit about it. Yes. So the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission, which will just affectionately referred to as the North Carolina Innocence Commission. It's the first of its kind in the nation. It's a commission that was created by the North Carolina General Assembly in 2000 and six and actually began operating in 2000 and seven since then, the commission's reviewed over 2500 innocence claims and conducted multiple hearings. The commission's basically charged with providing an independent and balanced true seeking forum for credible post conviction. Claims of innocence in North Carolina. It's a separate body from the traditional appeals process, so the commission doesn't come into play if you're falsely convicted. A defendant would still file appeals. And if accepted, go to the Supreme Court if needed. It's just kind of an additional vehicle to pursuing, You know, justice in the case of an erroneous decision. Joe when I was doing are when I was doing our research, you know, I'm generally as as attorneys were generally generally aware of the existence of this body, but I didn't know too much about the creation of it. Um, And so it was a statute it was created by the General Assembly. It's created by statute. I know a lot of times on the outlaw lawyer. We like to go back and look at the statute because you know, like we did with the dangerous dog statute. I don't know that I've ever read the dangerous dog statute before our before our show on it. But anyway, I'm a shortness to the commission. The commission that's better than what But the car, the car, uh and the C. The Big C. The commission does a lot of good work and it is it is different and separate. Like Joe said It is not. You know, if you get convicted of a crime, you're still responsible for trying to get heard Court of Appeals. Taking it to the Supreme Court. You have to exhaust all your administrative options, so that's one. There's a couple of different criteria. You have to meet to get considered by the commission. Um, but they have been doing a lot since they were operating. So I think the statute passed in. Oh, six. They began. They began operating in those seven and since Oh, seven, I went to their website looks like they have received 2939 claims of innocence. Um, they've got 29 claims so far in 2021. They've had 17 hearings and 15 exoneration. So we've got 15 folks convicted of fairly Serious crimes who have had their convictions exonerated. Um and so that's always a good story. You know, we would. We would argue as attorneys. We have one of the best judicial systems in the in the world, and it's but it is not perfect and it can be biased and it's just as imperfect as the people that operate it and serving the Juries and Serving the judiciary, so to have a body that can review this is I think very important and when it opened when they started, it was the first of its kind in the nation, and I really don't think I I went back to do some research, and I got back as far as 2018. I didn't see any other state doing anything similar to this, Um, still Yeah, and and like you said, we don't have an infallible system because of the fact that it's just at the end of the day as good of a framework as we may have for our legal system, it's just people who are imperfect. Mistakes are made biases, prejudices. There's all kinds of issues with the system, and we do the best we can. But at the same time, the fact that we have this vehicle to look back at things to make sure that anyone who has has been wrong by some injustice can get some relief. I think it's a great thing. And like you, said 15 exonerations. I mean, I think one exoneration is would be enough to justify the existence of the program and the fact that you've got 15 people wrongfully convicted that have been able to Find some relief. How great is that for those folks? Yeah, we'll talk a little bit about what it takes to apply to the commission. Like you said. These are fairly serious offenses. You're not applying to the Innocence Commission to get you out of a traffic ticket. I mean, these are these are major things and so too, in order to apply directly You must be claiming complete factual innocence for the crime for which you were convicted and any related and or lesser offense, So it can't be something you know years, claiming that It's a lesser degree. It's got to be complete factual innocence for both the crime which which you were convicted and or any lesser offense, and you also have to be convicted. Like you said of serious serious crimes, which include homicide, robbery, sex offenses, or class A through e felonies in North Carolina State court. Right. So you can't be convicted of first degree murder and make a claim to the commission and say it should have been manslaughter because that would be a lesser included offense of first degree murder. So you have to be completely innocent. Um, Charlie, the innocence commissioning it is, um in order. So the commission that's what you have to have and so forth in order for the commission to actually review your claim. In addition to being completely innocent and to having a serious offense, you have to, um it has to be a credible and verifiable evidence of innocent so they can review the transcripts from your cases. You know, they can review everything that's already there. But they need new evidence of innocence that the jury In your conviction did not hear that was not available or was not available prior to a plea or a jury trial. So your your criminal charge when it was finalized, there's there's evidence that was either withheld wasn't available. A lot of these have new DNA evidence because there's new, You know, a lot of these are from the eighties and the early nineties, There's new test and and so there has to be some new evidence. And I think you see when you look at the number of claims received verses, the number of hearings you know, you've got almost 2900 Plus claims received and you've got 17 hearings coming from that so The every case isn't going to get reviewed. There's gotta be some kind of like you said new evidence of innocence. Something new. Um, again, we put a lot of we still put a lot of faith in our system. And this is just kind of an additional check where new things have arisen that give that credible potential for innocence that that are going to be reviewed. So My statute. The commission can't review procedural errors, sentencing issues or any other claims that are not associated with actual innocence. So you can't just go back and look at Procedural errors again. It's got to be that new evidence that's being looked at or like you said some issue with the degree of sentencing. That's not what they're here to look at. The Innocence Commission also can't represent claimants that are appealing to them. They also require that claimants wave all privileges, including but not limited to the self incrimination. Attorney client privilege, spouse, so privileged doctor patient privilege. So you're basically waiting all of those privileges to be considered here, and you also have to turn over. Any additional evidence of the crime of anyone else's involvement or any new crimes that are associated to law enforcement as well. So there are a lot of strings attached here and a lot of additional things that must be complied with. Yeah, so the commission is basically telling you, you know the procedural errors, the sentencing issues all that would be handled through the Court of Appeals or the Supreme Court. That all has a Mechanism to be to be reviewed. Here It is the innocence..

"The confederacy and many of the students wanted it taken down for generations. Yeah and and had been working for decades to remove it in a way that was legal and followed all the rules and they went through every process. They could go through the north carolina. General assembly passed a law specifically to protect statues of this type from being removed even by the communities in which they stand and schools where they are in court houses and to make it virtually impossible to remove them and so stymied and unable to do this in a legal way protesters toppled the statue on the campus. And so what happened. After that was members of the board of governors board of trustees in conservatives north carolina said put it back up we would like to redirect confederate statue now in the modern era and this was twenty eighteen and so this was for a lot of reasons. Very bad idea. People who are white supremacists or showing up sometimes armed on campus to quote unquote defend. The statue You know and it's just a terrible terrible idea to deal with any further. So what did the university do about this well in their telling to try to get around this law the state law. That's still in place that protects these statues. They made a secret deal with a neo. Confederate group called the sons of confederate veterans whereby the sense of confederate veterans. Who don't have anything to do with the statue assert that it is their property and they've gotten rights to it from the daughters of the confederacy which did in fact was the group that so many years before had had erected a statue and that they'd be willing to take it off the universities hands in a legal way if they would give them the statue and several million dollars. Technically for upkeep of the statue but still over two million dollars to maintain a confederate statues. That's exactly right and the leader of that group in a celebratory email. Said we're gonna use some of that money to build a headquarters for ourselves. We've won our allies in the unc system in the board of governors Simply helped us do this. It was a huge controversy and and the public only found out about it when it was done deal and it had been announced. So what happened with nicole. Hannah jones when i listened to all of this history is part of a pattern and it becomes clear like in the weeks after the ten year. Back and forth was reported on there was some reporting that for instance i think seventy percent of black faculty had considered leaving the institution. And when you place. What happened with nicole. Hannah jones into the wider context. You can understand why that it's just one more incident that might make that faculty feel unwelcome. Yeah in fact. A prominent tenured professor williams turkey in history. Farmer told me he thinks it's probably closer to ninety percents and their other professors who are leaving their Are publicly saying this is why we've got professors who they were trying to recruit who our top people in their fields. Who've said i'm not coming there and this is why so guy there's there's it's not a theoretical cost so for people who live in. North carolina is the solution to this problem in their educational system. The same solution. We keep hearing about for every other political fight. Were in the middle of vote. Like that's the only way out given the way the boards are appointed as you disagree with what they're doing. Yeah if you agree with what you're what they're doing and this is a. These are the glory days while their husband likes to talk about objectivity and reporting if i totally objective about this and i overlooked any number of things that are ethically objectionable or outright illegal and i just sort of look in it with the totally objective lens than what i see is a political struggle between two sides conservative general assembly in their political appointees and faculty staff alumni and students of the university of chapel hill in many universities in unc system who are are more liberal progressive and they have competing interests and competing philosophies about the university of how should operate what should stand for and one of them is in power and one of them is not a joke kellyanne.

"Member of the board of trustees itself. And i wanted to ask you this whole issue of a tenure for faculty we've seen several battles now in recent years about a prestigious universities not approving tenure for prominent black and latino scholars. What do you say to people who say. These are basically tempest in a teapot that these are middle class intellectuals seeking to get approval of a permanent job lifetime job tenure is in these universities when millions of americans are what was just a decent paying job not and can dream of having lifetime tenure. How important are these battles in terms of the the battles over institutional racism in society. Right now i think it's a microcosm of a lot of things we're seeing in the nation right at public universities certainly the university of north carolina system in unc chapel hill. Its flagship institution. These organizations are Their boards that governing boards are political appointees so the unc board of governors for instance which governs the entire unc system. All of its schools has one democrat right now because republicans in the north general assembly appointing that democrat is a democrat who lost who is a lawmaker in lost his primary primarily because of siding very often with conservatives and republicans so that's what they put on the on the board there the The board at chapel hill is stacked with white men and stack with people who are conservative. It doesn't look anything like the. The university itself is the question of tenure money. You get a tenure appointment to champagne problem. I think it might seem that way for many people but nicole. Hannah jones doesn't come from an niger. Your ivory tower background. She doesn't come from the middle class. She's from waterloo iowa. She grew up in a working community where she didn't know black people who went to college. She went to notre dame she went to. Unc progress school. She worked her way up from the chapel hill news in north carolina up to the new york times one peabody hope national magazine awards the pulitzer along the way. So when you see somebody doing what conservatives say that they should do themselves up by their straps achieved in america and then they hit us sort of a glass ceiling. Friday logical reasons. I think that's the problem. I want to turn to to clips one the megadonor. And then the protestor who at this point might have more power. This is unc. Megadonor walter hussmann speaking in a two thousand nineteen video about his twenty five million dollar namesake donation to the unc hussmann school of journalism and media. We're investing in carolina journalism because it's a very important time in america. Americans are beginning to realize they need to a trusted source of professional journalists. And now i want to turn to a student when black students tried to attend the unc. Board of trustees meeting on wednesday. June thirtieth were members voted on whether to grant tenure to nicole hannah. Jones campus police forcibly removed. The students from the room as we all of their own call. Now this is. Unc student. Talia job van one of the protesters in that clip speaking on black shoes. Black news tonight with marc lamont hill about whether. Unc is a place where she wants to be now. They feel they can do anything to treat as any kind of way. I want you to ask yourselves. Honestly this is what we saw them do today on camera and they knew the world was watching. How do you honestly think they treat us. When you're not paying attention. I will never ever ever forget the less than unc chapel hill talking today and we'll continue to bring this up when i'm talking to potential. Black students were interested in coming here in the future now. Unc police chief Chapel hill has resigned after what happened at that. Trustee meeting joe killian take us from there. The power of hussmann. The power of the protesters. Well i mean you know. I think what you're seeing in that. Protest clip is a lot of pent up frustration over a number of issues dealing with politics and race at the university for years where students and faculty and staff members collared do not feel. They've been hurt and have had conflict with the people who are governing the university governing the university system who are very very removed from his attending the university and teaches at the university. Who the our if you just look at the makeup social makeup the racial ethic makeup of of these awards they just don't reflect the students in ideologically they certainly don't represent the students so there's a terrific amount of frustration built up as to how much influence they have. I mean i think that this. This incident proves that when the campus sort of speak says one faculty staff students alumni a major major funders of the university. They can get the attention of the people who are in charge. But you know can they make real change at you know. That's a harder question. Only the members of the north carolina general assembly can change leadership awards and people coming in are not any less conservative. In fact i would say that either more conservative than the people who are leaving. And the and i wanted to ask you terms of the impact of this night of this knightfoundation money which supposedly is also attracting a other foundations. The ford foundation and others for a multimillion dollar grant a howard university. What the impact is going to be a of that decision of these major foundations to essence provided alternative to what. Unc was so late and granting to into in terms of tenure here. Yeah this is not the first one we've seen this either. You wouldn't see lost a major grant after it's a debacle over the silence and confederate monument on its campus and how a candle bat and continues to come in conflict with major donors and to lose downers ends money from individual individuals who donated school to which honestly but some of the folks who were running school and running university. Say okay. that's fine. Burt redoing it. What it is we want to do and we believe that. Will you know. Continue to find the money to do that. We're you know we're not interested in changing direction. Because these people who our work don't like our students toppled the statue the confederate statue in two thousand eighteen. Now the unc. Press in the crosshairs of the board of governors which is refusing to reappoint professor. Eric muller who criticized the handling of the silent stem statue. We have five seconds. Yeah eric muller is a renown. Unc law professor. Who has been on the unc press or for two terms. He was three seconds to be reappointed reappointed and has heads with the order. We'll leave it there.

The power of hussmann. The power of the protesters. Well i mean you know. I think what you're seeing in that. Protest clip is a lot of pent up frustration over a a number of issues dealing with politics and race at the university for years where students and faculty and staff members collared do not feel. They've been hurt and have had conflict with the people who are governing the university governing the university system. Who are very very removed from his attending the university and teaches at the university. Who the nihar. If you just look at the makeup social makeup the racial ethic makeup of of these awards they just don't reflect the students in ideologically they certainly don't represent the students so there's a terrific amount of frustration built up as to how much influence they have. I mean i think that this. This incident proves that when the campus sort of speak says one faculty staff students alumni a major major funders of the university. They can get the attention of the people who are in charge. But you know can they make real change at you know. That's a harder question. Only the members of the north carolina general assembly can change leadership awards and people coming in are not any less conservative. In fact i would say that either more conservative than the people who are leaving. And the and i wanted to ask you terms of the impact of this night of this knightfoundation money which supposedly is also attracting a other foundations. The ford foundation and others for a multimillion dollar grant a howard university. What the impact is going to be a of that decision of these major foundations to essence provided alternative to what. Unc was so late and granting to into in terms of tenure here. Yeah this is not the first one we've seen this either. You wouldn't see lost a major grant after it's a debacle over the silence and confederate monument on its campus and how a candle and it continues to come in conflict with major donors and to lose downers ends money from individual individuals who donated school to which honestly but some of the folks who were running school and running university. Say okay. that's fine. Burt redoing it. What it is we want to do and we believe that. Will you know. Continue to find the money to do that. We're you know we're not interested in changing direction.

Of my when i was a reporter on issue so within the police department and and wage the valiant fightback in those days against racism and police abuse within the department became increasingly conservative as it became a politician.

"The climb Make crises is a national security issue on before in New Mexico. We are fragile environment. If we do not address the climate crisis with strong action, New Mexico will not be what it is today because we are so at the edge right. Too long of a drought will destroy our ability to enjoy this beautiful place we call home. You know the same way. The coasts are very up with their places in the United States. There are more of us than others in New Mexico is on there. We need a marshal. All the resources. We have to address that part of it is stuff we already know we need to do We know we need to go toe renewable energy, right? We need to move our energy grid away from possibly use move are Or tax policy away from fossil fields, But we also need that innovation and those labs. They're going to help us get there and they're already working on it. And so we need to increase the funding for those labs. So they start working on those issues that will address that climate that climate crisis because that climate crisis It is going to have a disruption. That is so much greater than all the pain we're going through now on, so we must, you know, respond that we must address it with kind of really bold action now because we've lost too much time we're talking with the represented the desolation. Fernandez of New Mexico serves the third district. Thank you for talking with us and introducing you to our viewers. Thank you so much for the invite. Deborah Ross was born in Philadelphia. In 1963, a civil rights lawyer. She served more than 10 years in the North Carolina House of Representatives. She became interested in politics as a member of the League of Women Voters, a Democrat. She represents North Carolina's second congressional district, Miss Rusty, Remember when you first became interested in politics? Oh, yes. Um, Mom and thank you for for reaching out and and asking these questions to let your viewers know a little bit more about this Incoming class. Um, I remember my mom being so involved in the League of women voters and working to get women Elected to local government in the seventies, and my mom was more of a grassroots person. I grew up in a small town less than 20,000 people, and she would go door to door ready either raising money for a good cause, or letting people know that somebody wonderful was running in our local community. And she had me go with her. And sometimes I'd be on one side of the street and she'd be on the other side of the street and we would connect with our neighbors and tell them how much it meant. To get involved in their community. What's how old were you? What sort of reaction did you get knocking on the door of your neighbors? Oh, I've always been a pretty outgoing person and friendly. I was around 10 years old. That's my first memory of doing it. Who knows if she had me doing it earlier? But when I was around 10 years old was when I started to do it pretty regularly with her and for other local government. Folks in our town, and that's the first time I ran for position with student government in middle school, and I like going door to door is a matter of fact not being able to do that was one of the downsides of this campaign season. I've been in eight elections and love meeting people in their communities. This'll time around. It was all the telephone and I was a big telephone person as a teenager. So those skills came back to spend a lot of hours on the phone, Huh? Okay, So did you all think? Did you always think I'm going to run for office someday? Well, like I said, in middle school, I started getting involved in student government. What I would say is, um and I realized now how unique it Woz. But there were a lot of strong female leaders, setting an example for me and showing me that anything was possible in education and and in my career and then in government. I was born in Philadelphia, but I grew up. Ah, good part, basically from second grade on in Connecticut. And Ella Grasso was the governor of Connecticut and Barbara Keneley was in Congress. And it just was normal to me that there would be women occupying very significant roles, political roles and government rolls. And I realize now how unusual it was for that time, but I think they they and my mom and my Junior high school civics teacher told me anything was possible, and they lead by example. They got me involved in the community, which is the best way to learn whether or not you want to serve any other political mentors in your life. Well, one of my biggest political mentors in the General Assembly, and I served in the North Carolina Legislature for more than 10 years. Woz, a two term speaker of the house. Joe Hackney. Hey was a mentor to me when I was an advocate, offer the Civil liberties Union. Hey, was the chair of the Judiciary Committee. I got to know him there and then I started to serve and he gave me Ah lot of positions of leadership very early on co chairing Constitutional committees. I ultimately chair the Judiciary Committee twice. And was a whip. And we have very different personalities of much more outgoing, ready to move and he's a farmer and a lawyer. Very patient keeps his own counsel, and he taught me that there are lots of different ways to get things done in politics, and he taught me the importance of patients and grace as well. Did he have anything that he would say to you? Or do you remember a piece of advice? Yeah, hey, would say sometimes it's better to wait. So if something was getting very hot in, there were a lot of people on different sides rather than trying to immediately pick a side or immediately come up with a solution. He would really let everybody speak. Let everything get out on the table. And give it a night and asked people to talk to each other and frequently things could be resolved. Not in the heat of the moment. But after a good night's sleep, and after having some good conversations, you have been in eight elections. You have served in office on the state level. You ran for the U. S Senate any moments along the way. Where you think, or you've experienced, um, any sexist, uh, pushback from men. And how did that shape you? Oh, all the time. I mean, I grew up in a different generation. I'm in my fifties and I just let it roll off my back. Sometimes I would handle it with humor. If Itwas, um you know, sexual in nature, I would push back hard. I was framed and shaped by watching Thea need a hill hearings and we I think a number of women in my generation said, You know, you've got to speak up early. Um, if I saw something or felt something that was inappropriate, I would always tell people in real time what was going on to protect myself. Um, but it was a different time when I first started in politics That was the youngest woman in the North Carolina General Assembly. And sometimes the pushback I got was from the women. Um, I remember I tried to go into the members cafeteria at the very beginning. And the woman who ran the members cafeteria didn't think I was a member because I was a woman in her thirties, and they're just worked very many of those in our General assembly. How are you frame and shaped by the Anita Hill hearings? Well, what I saw Awas people who didn't have an understanding of what really goes on in the workplace and in society for women. What, what we hear sometimes just walking down the street and I'm not the only person that was the year of the woman for getting women elected to Congress is well and Patty Murray tell us a wonderful Senator Patty Murray tells a wonderful story about how she was inspired by those hearings. But the way I was framed and shaped Woz to know that it is important to speak out, it's important to see change. It's important to be in the holes of power that we can't just expect somebody to protect us. We have to protect ourselves. And even more importantly, women have to protect others. You practice law for 25 years. What issues did you work on? And will you continue that work in Congress in Washington? Well, I have loved practicing law. And I also taught law at Duke University, primarily toe foreign lawyers, which was very interesting sharing our legal system with people who come from other legal systems. As everybody knows. I ran the Civil Liberties Union in North Carolina for more than seven years, So I have a history off. Working on constitutional law, civil rights, civil liberties, the First Amendment, and those are very, very strong values that I have, and I had a lot of success, both in court. Hand advocating at the Legislature on issues affecting civil rights and civil liberties. And this moment in our nation's history, we need champions for civil rights and civil liberties, and I plan to be that champion again..
