"Loudon county. Virginia is growing affluent. Virginia suburb in recent months schools. They're found themselves in the middle of a national conversation about critical race theory and rights for transgender students. I spoke with d. Ceus matt blitz about the latest developments. So what is going on at the school system. And why is it so contentious well. In recent months loudon county public schools have been thrusted into the national spotlight for the ongoing conversations there around equity transgender rights racism in critical race. Theory school board meetings. There are normally reserved recognizing high achieving students and budget discussions but they become political flashpoints filled attention anger and chaos now. Several parents are suing the school system to stop an action plan. School officials believe would help fix long-simmering systemic ron's lawsuit claims. Those plans are violating the constitution guarantee of free speech and equality before the law. So how did the situation get here. What has the leader been to the current state of tension. A number of things have happened dating back. Actually a couple of years jonathan In february two thousand nineteen and incidents made national headlines where gym teacher had students act as runaway. Enslaved people all running through an obstacle course representing the underground railroad prompted in part by this. The county hired in auditing company. Who determined that loudon. Schools had a quote hostile learning environment for students of color while they frequently experienced quote. The sting of racial insults slurs or racially motivated violent actions. What's more reports that teachers and staff do know how to handle these incidents and discipline usually negatively impacted students of color. Then the nwa filed a complaint against the schools for discriminatory emission practices related to a stem school early this year. Virginia's attorney general side of nwpp called allowed into make big changes in response to all of this. The schools introduced the action. Plan to combat. Systemic racism. It calls implicit bias. Trainings protocols for dressing racial slurs and establishing a student equity ambassador program and assistant for anonymously reporting racist incidents okay so what are the criticisms of these new policies. And why is it. Why is it controversial for some people in lab county and i guess elsewhere some field. This action plan other things. The schools are doing is akin to teaching critical race theory. Which of course has become a hot button issue. Nationwide critical race theory is a field of academia studying how racism is woven in american policy and laws. Loudon county superintendent. Scott ziegler told us that. They're absolutely not teaching. It and believes connecting. The schools equity work to critical race. Theory is politically motivated. Still at least some parents are not buying that. I want to tell me that. The superintendent can use words like equity diversity inclusion but quote. It's all similar political ideology. And i wish they couldn't teach that to our children so matt of course all of this comes down to students and the impact that this will have on students. You talked with some students in loudon county. What they say to you. Yeah we spoke with a number of both black and white students and they also they've seen in heard racist incidents at school one teenager told me she's called a racial slur but there are few consequences when she reported it a white student. That said that somebody threatened to pull off job arising eleventh grader. Said he's one of the few black students in a stem school and it can make them feel pretty alone or all. This is awful and heartbreaking. Some of the students. I spoke to said that these experiences have pushed them to be advocates. And speak up when they see something wrong.

"Editorial writers. I'm still believing in the perfectibility of man. So. What stories could should I be looking for in my community that frankly would put a little bit heat on the right people to improve their communication skills between now and then you know how can I what stories should I be doing to assess how good a job they are doing in communicating what needs to be communicating them? I think that's really the question I'm having my assignment editor for a minute. I been extremely I've been extremely heartened and impressed with the advocate groups on the ground soon, some of the classic. Sort of well known groups like the W. c. p. and the Urban League. I've also been heartening impressed with a large group of new voting advocate groups. That are coming out ranging from fashion to sports, figures, etc I, think if I were. An assignment editor I would I. would be out there talking to the advocates on the ground to see what you're doing. They have different sets of Different sizes of Staff I. There's One the president of the NWPP in Georgia James would all incredibly impressive he was doing a voter education seminars himself at one point simply to make sure that that information got out. They've they've recently also been doing things party at the polls. Are these I, want I'm interested in knowing that if all of the Attention from. Sports figures and. Hollywood types is that actually equally eating you know people action is our people are, is it actually activating people to get out and get registered, etc.. I also want to know you know you hear from. Of Different corporate organizations. Now, that are actually getting are trying to get information out. Through organizations like civic alliance and others. Well, what's happening? How's that trickling? Dow, where is that going in the communities is something I'm very interested in in following and finding out. I'd also if it were, you know I again or an assignment editor. I would really also be looking at you know there's some really cool. You know ground swell clangs of regress. I guess we call it grassroots across tops, heads of organizations like a black votes. I am voter who are doing all kinds of really interesting. Pop Up kinds of events around the country I. think that's really interesting but I don't know I I'm curious to see if it actually. Motivates and in gets people into into those voting booths and polls. And the other thing that I'm in and I would love to see kind of looked at is. The amount of collaboration in some cases and the lack thereof all these groups. I. Think it's wonderful again that all these groups are are doing so many different things but often they're not talking to each other and often they're not coordinating across and that was something certainly we also in part of this report putting creating all these groups just one place just to if nothing. Else. Let them all know hey, you all know about each other because it's a it's a funny space right? Because you you comment you know every every four years a lot of people pure kinda parachute into all things voter communications and education, and then they forget about the show the other down ballot years you know, and then there's a core group that keeps going. you know. I would love to see someone kind of report on whose talking who's doing a good job of that collaboration in the state and who's Frankly missing opportunities. Thanks arena, we throw it open to the group. Great seventy can raise your hand by clicking on the participants icon, the bomb, your screen, and if you're on E. tablets, click on the button on the upper right hand corner, you can raise your hand bear and our first question comes from Kanye West. Please tell us what news outlet you're with. And be sure to mute. Yourself. Good evening afternoon everybody I'm with W. R.. D. Here in Philadelphia. Tiffany to your point there's a lot of of ground organizations in here in Philly. We've been doing a lot of movement they have been working together. party at the polls is really big here just just a whole lot of things are black clergy however last night there was a killing a police shooting in West Philadelphia where young man a black young man was shot and killed by Philly police and I am really wearing that all of the rallying cries that we've been doing for voting will now be subsided to the police brutality. So my question is, how can we cover both because they're both important but still emphasize the fact that we are illegal away from voting. Great Question. That is that that is an amazing question I i. I'm so sorry to hear about this shooting and I am but I'm also pardoned to hear that the the Philadelphia organizations are working together. Erie perceived them to be because it was certainly a city that we we were watching carefully to see an obviously for Pennsylvania for all of the reasons is. Is a state that's high on my bellwether watch. I know that I know that a lot of national organizations that are actually asking themselves. The same question you know Washington Post for instance, you know went to twenty, six, thirty, six people on the ground in states for exactly this reason because they don't they're going to be covering election or civil unrest. Or other issues I would say that you know here's where I wonder if there's even media opportunities amongst your colleagues within a city to figure out how. I once ran the Association of Alternative newsweeklies and one of the things after sort of the initial checkup that the news weeklies realized that they had to go from criticizing the daily media to collaborating with the daily media, and often we were finding that they were able to cover city hall or issues of of. Governance a little bit better while the dailies we're covering the breaking I. Just wonder if there are more collaborations like that that we could all take advantage of I feel like in the media world, you know when what is it one in one in fifteen news organizations are no longer working. If if we don't collaborate enough, I was just thinking you know, could we for you for instance, cop tall car friends at Lynn vest and see if we could collaborate the coverage Again, I would also frankly not to put too personal pitch on it. There are individuals in organizations like myself who are really I'm sitting here waiting for to help, coordinate and collaborate with you all on these on these issues. So I didn't give a great answer, but those are a few ideas and I would say that, please get in touch with me. Afterwards, I will gladly help connect or collaborate with with you or that goes for any of the journalist on the call. If I can if I can help..

"Image for the event. Well, you know, I can't speak to that piece of it. But what I can't say to you is that the anti is is happening just you know, period across our country. We're we're in a time period where women who were normally light or downright leadership position. I mean, even put the require you contacted NWPP. Our president is the first Muslim woman to be the president of NWPP. And I believe that women are rising that were normally March life that it's just uncomfortable. In in through that it comes across where you know organizations are just not being able to meet on a think pay because of the way ink ran for. So I can comment to that question for you. What does that have to do with anti-semitism the point about women of color or Muslim women, for example, rising into positions of power? What does anti-semitism have to do with it? Well, when you think about even the suffrage movement women all the way back hundred hundred fifty years ago, and you think about what's happening now there still are a lot of areas even corporate in politic where women are not being necessarily accepted into the leadership position. But I don't wanna get whale rolled into a conversation about doing that. We can't seek the EP and I tell you to join. And we joined because of the fact that we are the guardians of civil rights and civil rights come to for women or men for all people, really, especially individuals who are marginal. And when you look at Muslim and women of color particular can't deny it women of color were Mark country for instill it the day. And so that we can speak on at the end of lease EP. If there's an opportunity for us to be able to join forces and being able to magnify someone else's voice to be able to exactly what we're gonna do, and you can expect that I suppose, I guess then I disagree with the premise of your point in relationship to Ilhan, Omar. I don't think people are going after Ilhan, Omar because she's a Muslim woman of color, but they're going after her and charging her with anti-semitism because she uses antisemitic tropes in her language surrounding the state of Israel and Jews. So for example, do you think? Straying Jews as rich people who buy influence. Do you think that that is an antisemitic trope? What's your question? Again. Do you think it's an antisemitic trope to portray Jews as rich people buying influence? I don't I'm not gonna get into right now. You're talking about classes, and I I'm talking with respect because I'm talking specifically about the topic of the panel that you guys are endorsing. And I think that it's important because if we're going to say that will haunt Omoro anyone is being targeted as an anti Semite simply because they happen to be a Muslim woman of color. I want to be. This event is about right. I mean, you you would certainly concede. I mean, I took that specifically from the event description. It says Howard charges of anti-semitism being weaponized specifically target black power, powerful black and Muslim leaders and Ilhan, Omar. Let me let me flip. Inaccurate question. Do you see anything happening? What's lack women or moved on women in particular that comes to a point where their voice our voices are being you are are being hurt. Are you telling me that you have anything like that in our country? Intelligence charges in our fate charges of anti-semitism. No, I have not seen that from charges of anti-semitism. Okay. Well, we're not here to argue with a call. No, no. I totally appreciate by the way you coming on. But but. Or the charges guys. Who is the victim? Who's the victim of charges of anti-semitism being weaponized specifically to target them? Who was the victim? I'm not going to answer that question. You're lear. We're we're going to endorse the fan. It's about their guardians of civil right? And in particular, she acts end the key to come on. And join our presidents. They are right now at the we are a sponsor of Ethan, and we're going to arm whole arms with her the support her throughout her journey in her career of being politics. And that's really what it is. Has has she been the victim of Antar has she been the victim of charges of anti semitism. Yes. Apple dot com. That we're going to camp behind her on the bottom line is at inva- day guardian of civil rights, and she happens to be a woman prowler that happens a fall at the civil rights that she had had issued. I can't interviewing her it. Would it sounds like athletes? I would love to interview her. But the fact of the matter she's taking I would come on come on the show and happily talk to her do you think the idea of dual loyalty or the idea blaming Israel exclusively for problems in the region. Do you believe any of those are anti semitic because that is basically why Ilhan Omar is being called anti semitic. Right. Well, I can't comment on that. That's not what you wanted to your show. I'm talking about the I'm talking about the do do you believe in particular to support her? I'm believe I'm here as a public is represented end up and one of the things that once again, she cute in a situation. She's a woman that he was a man even if a white man that needed support, let's say that she was she has certain policies at the majority did not believed in its in leak felt like it was appropriate any civil rights end up with fine on the support that no matter the white man is a matter a Muslim woman Asian woman that that's really our fans ended, and I just think that for the type of questions that you're asking her what her camp where they are sponsoring supporting her because once again, cheat up all underneath civil rights supporter. Kua hall is a spokesperson for the Seattle NWC p King County chapter. We're talking about an event tonight. Night, intersectional dialogue and weaponising charges of anti-semitism. Do you think it's possible for an African American woman to be an anti Semite? I think it's possible for anybody for the anything, you know. I mean, it all depends on culture away for raid of African American women to plenty of white men. Rachel people who aren't their parents. I didn't come from the type of culture, they came from a black woman was raised by white parents who were extremely rape as you could be anything. Right. White man with rate by black parents that were racist. I it could be the same thing. So I I'm just going to back off of that question right there. Or are you just are you suggesting that if you believe someone to be anti semitic or anti whatever a bit of whatever kind, but they also happen to be a Muslim woman of color. You would still back that person you would still support that person. The pill rights as four, and you know, I know that. And that's why I'm asking that question because you're your innocence. You're supporting someone who has been condemned as an anti Semite who repeatedly uses antisemitic tropes as a means to talk about Israel. It's the Cleveland of someone who says the black face isn't racist. And you're like well why because I found one individual black person said black phases racists. No, it's still historically racist. We would all pointed out, and we would say at least, let's have an educator will moment about this. But I don't hear that coming from you guys as it relates to Ilhan, Omar. Instead, you're deciding to support her. Well, you know, what you can you right now. What fact that you have about things that he has spoken to that right now or one hundred percent? She says that Israel has hypnotized the world. She has suggested that Jews in Israel have bought US politicians. It's all about the Benjamins baby. She implied that American Jews have divided loyalties dual loyalties all of those are antisemitic. Trolls, and she's she said it many times she's been condemned by the congress, including Democrats her own party condemned her so yes, I can talk about that now. Yeah. Hey, you know, what I think that we need to really have her online with you. And to interview her the ACP, they reached out once again, and he is here to support her at the woman, and as like, you said the woman of color, deport her in her rate of making sure that think that you know, that she's able to really what she needs to lead. And that's why we're here. So anything else? Fortunately, I'm going to get you in contact with her. I guess definitely. Feel can arrange that for you. I can't guarantee me I'm an open. I don't I don't necessarily know she'll come on given my positions on this. But I suppose do you think that the Seattle? I'm sorry. I think. Yeah. Of course, I think she may. She may come on. Why not you why why does he want to be able to her day? I can't sit here and defend her name to you. I'm here. You baby healthy book that interview. Do you think that the Seattle NWC peaking county chapter has that interview? No, I'm saying, do you think that there is a responsibility on your part to fully vet the people that you decide to back because here's a concern of mine. I believe as many Jews not the fringe, the two fringe token Jews that you have on the panel that happened to suggest that the state of Israel should not exist and that they support. Yes. But the vast majority of Jews believe this event to be antisemitic. Now, I understand that you personally, don't or maybe you just don't see it that way. And I think that's a that's subjective. But when you've got a whole bunch of Jews saying something anti-semitic, should you not listen to those Jews the same way that I'm hoping that people listen to the African American community when they say something's race. Right. Right. Right. What I would say to you it I'm coming to reach our there. Once again, her office are office. We're supporting her. Yes. Her. So. Ilhan? Omar is the reason why this event is happening. I thought this was being done by local organizations. I'm telling you the local organization so are in in conversations with her not the reader why on the fifth, but I can't eat to you directly about her. I think that you need to seek to her camp. And if you get you in contact believe New York, Tom Ridge out, your producer. Yeah. The email. I can get you a contact with the individuals who reach out to they have helped them sponsor events figure.
