I mean, I understand that you have all these shooting and what happened. I'm not trying to downplay it or anything like that. And in fact, I should go to prison or death penalty for the rest of his life. But how are we downplaying the 60 plus shootings in Chicago and the 18 people murdered in Chicago? How are we downplaying the more than 15 people murdered over the holiday weekend in Oakland? And all the black on black crime in the shooting that's happening. But hang on, but let me ask you something. Omar, let me ask you a question though. You're right there in the belly of the beast there. You're dealing with it. Let me ask you something. Don't you feel like the recall you got a huge recall effort in these big cities of these Soros funded prosecutors, they're being fired, gascon, all these prosecutors are facing a huge pushback.

"Oakland, California I'm Molly would infer Kyra's doll. It's Monday, the sixth of September. Good as always to have you along. Regular listeners to this program will recall that the unemployment report released on Friday showed weaker than expected job growth in August, as the Delta variants urged the overall trend seemed positive. Unemployment fell from 5.4 to 5.2%. But not for black workers. They were the only racial or ethnic group to see unemployment rise a lot from 8.2 to nearly 9%. And that trend is going in the wrong direction. Just as federal unemployment benefits which have extended and expanded relief for millions of Americans expire today. Marketplaces Meghan McCarty Carino has more The unemployment report did contain one piece of sort of good news for black workers, says Chandra Chilled, Ear's a director at the Institute for Women's Policy Research. The number of black workers in the labor Force went up in August after falling the month before, so they're going back into the labor market. But it's a labour market where the areas where they tend to work. Alright, shrinking industries like leisure and hospitality. State and local government and childcare have been slower to bounce back and our big employers of black women Not only do black women work in child here, but they also are more likely than other groups of women to be the sole provider in their households, which means childcare becomes ever more important. But differences between industries don't fully explain the gap in black and white unemployment, says William Spriggs, an economist at Howard University and the AFL CIA, He says it's clear there's discrimination in the labour market. It screens at two and the unemployment rate for blocks with associate degrees was higher than the unemployment rate for plates who were dropouts, he says. Black workers remain unemployed, the longest supporting the adage. They are often the first fired last hired in our economy, which makes the cut off of federal unemployment programs today, all the more concerning, says Andrew Stettner at the Century Foundation. The thing we're trying to prevent, because our people pushed into economic situations that can have a long term family and social effect. Do they lose their home? They lose their car. He says black workers have been more likely to rely on federal programs, which offered relief to the long term unemployed, those without traditional full time jobs or those who had to leave work due to care, taking her illness. And they're more likely to live in southern states, where it can be harder to qualify for unemployment and benefits are lower. I'm Meghan McCarty, carino for Marketplace. US markets are closed for the Labor Day holiday. It's also Russia. Chana Happy New Year you're celebrating. We'll take a look at global markets and some other economic indicators when we do the numbers..

"If the consortium that has put together a dream team one of the group's members is robert bob. The former sticking manager of the city of oakland. so he knows how to get things done. He knows the government approval process Ray bob it a local businessman with deep ties in the community who grew up in oakland and they also have a financial partner loop capital l. p. loop capital out of chicago Which if i'm not mistaken. The largest black own investment firm in america and a potential large successful capital partner so they have the financial aspect they have the community aspect and they have the how of working with the governmental agency aspect as well as Shonda got herself a women's basketball player in her own right and a local woman and community leader who is in leadership in effort as well and so It really is an amazing group that had pulled together all these different rank To be able to have successful approach. That approach is something that is synonymous with the wnba today. But it was not always the case. And i am not this long enough to remember covering player protests that ultimately the league came to support. But it took some time you go back to twenty sixteen and players were actually initially find for protesting police violence before the league came. I think to understand and certainly Under the commissioner. Missioner's cathy engelbert. Very much embraced. Its role as show show justice league. I frame it that way. Because i'm wondering for you and you are somebody who has fought the good fight in so many different areas How much using the league. Being social justice lead has made it a more attractive to the city of oakland and be a place that was able in this case to draw lake. You said like you pointed out some real heavy hitters on the finance side necessary. In order to have a franchise come to be. It's absolutely Oakland has a strong and long standing commitment to social justice. Both in recent years in terms of being a center of the movement for black lives and being a center of the movement to bring meaningful civilian responders for our public safety need. These are all things that oakland has been leader on that has also been true for decades before in the fight to uplift support against apartheid in south africa. That movement also had a strong center in oakland and so it is not new oakland to be at the center of limits for social justice and the fact that the wnba is also censoring. These same goals is a perfect alignment and part of why it is certainly my hope and belief that the wnba will choose to agree to expand. You know clinton to those details. Do you feel confident about at this point. Does it still feel preliminary we heard from cathy. Engelbert obviously earlier this week talking about the fact that as we move into what certainly we. All hope is a post pandemic experienced that the lead is starting to have conversations about those statements conceptually. But for all the reasons that you and i have talked about just the idea of oakland as a city just the idea of oakland as a destination interesting idea of oakland as having that infrastructure in place. It's hard to imagine a better fit For the lead What's your read on. How far lawn You'd is are relative to the wnba sounds will. That is absolutely true. Oakland has a strong fan base Demographically certainly we would be expected to be one of the strongest places to have turn out and support for wnba team and we have a ready to go back. People arena did not only is easily accessible from throughout oakland but it's easily accessible from throughout the greater northern california region which would further add to the of the fan base and support the team and we have an investment group. That is to go that it's financially strong and it is deeply connected to the oakland community in a way that will help them maximise turn-out and support for a team here and we have the opportunity to bring back roy oracle as it's been known historically for its very strong fan and i love every part of that I'm curious from your perspective. Us specifically what was your moment of say eureka moment for this being the right fit. I know you've been added for some time. I'm curious what the origin of that was for. You well. I have been wanting wnba team for quite some time. I love women's basketball personally. you know for my own enjoyment And i also am someone who has a long history working. On issues of justice and equality and women's advancements racial justice and lgbt inclusion. And so i have wanted to. Wnba team for a. While this january. I was appointed to serve on the board oversees the arena and so i was able to then redouble my efforts to bring forward the approvals that would allow this process to move ahead in a more formal way to pursue a leap. I will say this everything you've pointed to is significant before even getting into the fact that when you go at collegiate level not just a question stanford. The pac twelve is the best women's basketball conference in america and has been for several years Competition top to bottom. So i'm gonna leave you with this question to ponder. Hypothetically you are the president of basketball operations for the new oakland wnba team. Who is your pick to start the franchise around of any player in the wnba to death. Well i'm not going to insult any of them by picking any of them over others. But what i will say is that we need to expand opportunity for women players and not only. Are there so many incredible players playing already. There are many incredible players. That didn't get a thought on any team because there aren't as many teams as there are in many of the men's professional sports league. And so i'm doing that not only for the fitting amazing players but pretty amazing players to come. Who haven't yet had a lot of playing in the wnba is long. Overdue and the talent based dramatically outstrips. The number of roster spots well. Rebecca kaplan vice mayor of oakland fighting the good fight with a very exciting announcement. Promised will stay in touch. And you'll keep us posted on everything that's going and look forward to seeing you in the arena. Which i planned to cover in person when the sentence absolutely we look forward to it we recognize that women hold up half the guy to wnba is growing. It's an exciting time with the growing excitement and public coverage and a new team. Many new team can make sense but oakland and our existing wonderful arena is an incredible opportunity to unite the fan base the opportunity with the wnba and its growth for so long..

"Check out our amazing diverse team covering everything women's basketball and to that end. This is been. I would say. Not a devoid of newsweek. When it comes to his past audit put it mildly but maybe the most important out of all of the bits of news that we've gotten this week we're gonna get to it in the weeks to come. Obviously as we prepare for the olympics to my mind is what we heard today about the city of oakland and a wnba key So when it ends of the details of that with somebody. Who's been instrumental in helping to make this happen. The vice mayor of oakland who joins us rebecca kaplan rebecca first of all. How gratifying was it to be able to put this out today. I am so thrilled and excited the today. We voted to move forward on the process of developing a leaf to have a wnba team at the arena in oakland. I am very gratified. We know that. Oakland has an incredible fan base. A strong history of showing up for basketball. And we haven't had women's teams in the past. This is something i've been pushing for. For several years we have an available basketball arena so this is a huge important step forward in the process to pursue bringing a wnba team to oakland. So there's a lot of processor. But i just wanted to kind of set the terms. I think you've largely done so from an oatlands perspective. But you should know every conversation i've had a macro conversation about the wnba in what's ahead and what should be notched whether it's within the league or without you know une background you name it. It's always how do we get a wnba team to the bay area now. You obviously have roots there to be able to understand why that is but can you kind of explain what led you to that moment of. Jeez this is really something i wanna fight for. Juve been added for a while. now yes absolutely. I've been pushing for us to work to bring a wnba for several years and then With the departure of the other basketball team who once upon a time as the arena also known as as as rural for the power of it. Fan enthusiasm That opened up that door as a way to be strongly pursue you think existing basketball arena where we could have a wnba team not even be in the position of being a junior partner to a men's team but actually the primary In the arena. And you know the other things. I would say about the bay area and the oakwood site in particular. The area has a very strong presence for women's basketball including the cal and stanford Community and team we also are a community in the bay area that values social justice that values equality and women's rights be up for the principle that black lives matter and they both women leadership and women's leadership are important and the proposal. We have in oakland. From the african american sports and entertainment group is a black lead and black women led organization and so all of these factors coming together with the fact that we have an arena did is on public transit on the freeway easy access to the airport centrally located to the region and frankly even on the amtrak train the coast to sacramento so the former monarch's fans join us as well So we really have a perfect storm of the fan base the community and now a group that being to bring a team The really shared the values with our community. You know if you'll forgive a point of personal privilege just to hear the extent which the homework has been done here. There's a lot of and ucla.
