Interviewing Bucks' legend Marques Johnson
"And it's our Pleasure to welcome in a two time Emmy Award winning bucks. TV analysts a five time eh, NBA All Star. Did also play at Bella and won a national championship. That's Marcus Johnson here with us on the Zach Yelp show. Marcus appreciate the time How you doing? I'm doing bills. Everything is no good. All can play good benefits in basketball family from your lips to God's ears. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen in the N B. A bubble. I saw video back in February, You were wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey and you actually threw it down in your road. I'm still dunking at 64 years old. Have you been dunking at all during the pandemic? Or was that a one time thing at 64 district Cream donuts, Bad eye. You must have been nervous, right? Well, every year on my birthday, I do a dung just to see if I could still do it. I didn't plan on doing it this year. Just chill out at my son's a SIA. All over social media. They have got to do it contingent to the one in Sydney one in with that inside, And so, of course, I did a couple of warm up to feel pretty good and And we decided absent phone brought up two tackles. Omar, you know, taco fallen. Whoever jumped over him, Aaron Gordon. Whoever dumped over way last year Next year I'll be 65. That's the official retirement age. I've been retired. I'm Travis. You have to do one more 65 years old. I gotta pay the bed after that. I don't blame you. I don't. I can't even dunk right now. I can't imagine being able to dunk when you're in your sixties. Marcus Johnson here with us on the show. When we look at this MBA restart. We know that the Bucks are the best team in the league. From a record standpoint right now they're going to be the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. The's eight games inside of the bubble. What do you look for out of them where they could really ease themselves back into playing shape? The annex a great question. I was just kind of pondering that looking at the books. Play that scrimmage against neworleans the other night and You know, I just don't think that teams should put too much into the eight. Feeding games. It's a gradual buildup. You want to be planned your best basketball. Obviously when, when the playoffs start. This is such a weird. Praise the different type of experiment. Probably guys. And so, um, you know, see positives from the brother. I've seen not good things about in terms of Kind of fighting since, um, some difficulties against the product in here tonight, but, you know the season games Because boom Jose lost compete. He's gonna want these guys to come out and and just so effort show competitive competitiveness from Paris. But I'm not sure about the ones. The won and lost record is important. At this stage of the game. It's all about kind of a slow, gradual buildup. I've been exploding wants to play all secure here. When you look at the team from last year to this year. What do you see is the biggest difference as they even got better from what they were last year, which was impressive. Well, I mean, ways that it rest values that they're so what he has done that He's given Chris Middleton a breather at defense. Can't Chris I was just looking up Christian defensive record 107th overall, 22nd ranked small forward LeBron and collide As I said at the top. But Chris doesn't have to get all that energy trying to beat this Great three and the win. Clare and I could focus on his office and I was a result becomes one of seven or eight guys who was Trying to suit you both 20% from the three point line, stick to the set plus from the field and monitor it from the people that I think a 20 point today. Yes, I think that's direct benefit to Chris Middleton. Eric Bledsoe also, let's not forget him, Master. He struggle big time last couple of years in the playoffs and honestly, stuff a big farm of the playoffs. Uh, this year, he seemed to be a lot more comfortable in his basketball scared now. It is kind of getting a late start based on tested positive and them in quarantine and all that stuff. How quickly he could kind of get back into a rhythm and flow going to be a big difference. But today I think this team has gotten even better, but local tradition of Robin Has really been a great great move. But John forced our president breaking Robin Lopez, and now we've got two bent beak gets standings and leave so I think the defense has been even better than the great detective team from last season. Marcus Johnson here with us it Zaki help show on CBS Sports radio doing a little bubble breakdown on the Milwaukee butts nationally. The big question about Chris Middleton is. Can the Bucks win it all with him? Be in the Bucks. Second best player. He's a two time All Star. Give me the local feel on that. Our people still concerned locally about Middleton be in that number to peace and winning the championship this year. Right here is where you go. I could go to a barber shop in the hold of the brothers give Ah, little about depended on Chris have the huge games but In terms of inside basketball people, people that have watched Chris closely like myself. I really believe that Chris, it's all about his confident being an all Star to the second consecutive D up really? Helps his belief in himself as being one of the elite players in the league and kept in one of the shooters in the league. And you couple that with the fact that he comes back, he's getting guns for arms and get this definition I've never seen before. His body status. Probably way dog looks really good, really in great shape of the Kalpoe talked about his explosion and bounciness coming back after the four months off was really, really surprised. So he's really putting the work that during this time off to come back and make himself I've been so on. But with president mentally I think that way you get tomato last year, the average with just 14 points in the field, and he left. How Laurie, pending for a big cheque of those minutes in that six game lost to the crap. You have to be enough to love. So you've got a lot to prove, but I think Based on what I'm looking at changes of his body where he is physically brave is right. But I think he's ready to make that statement. When I look at the Eastern Conference, I really do fully expect Milwaukee. To get to the finals. They were in that one seed spot last year did not get there When you look at the Eastern Conference this year, who's the biggest challenger for the Bucks when the season resumes tomorrow night? It's really interesting. You get him some. I think three really legitimate. Even the Miami that mix also, you can't count out exposure and then the butler as your lead gap, but I think there's still a little bit godly hero of none. And guys like that. And then he began by making just a little bit young and that, Betty, but I really believe that Celtics man. I mean, people talk about the Raptors, who I respect about. Nick Norris is a great coach. Brad Stevens was great, but one through four in terms of scoring and issues and problems. You know Jason Taylor planted Kemba Walker is the number one option. That's two through four group these guys to produce and I think about taking on like the game, and that's the most since that Golden State a couple of years ago, but most just like second most 1995 in terms of looking for and then when Gordon Hayward is your fourth option, going going home. What is your fourth option? And then we talk about a container my greatest been, but then this Dylan Brown watching his footwork. Watching the lip bruised stands the finishes in traffic. He's a guy that could be a real problem for team like the book had been. The wild card would be market smart. Distant Jabba, even though Marcus Smart Sixthree export out of 16 11 Marcus Smart office of players and we know how much she just underneath their skin. And so he's a guy that has given me honest as much trouble as anybody scoring effectively and officially against it, So I said that and then the two big catch I mean the pick and roll for five hours straight that Boston life's run. Those two guys found business cancer, pounded it inside a greatjob getting into the paint and score of them that I'm not gonna puke my shot and roll that movies have private medical himself. I really believe that Celtics to me that they're not deed. I think both those four score that they have been a lot of pressure on the Milwaukee ways that do the Middleton. To defend at a high level every night in order to be a minute in a series.

Her Dad's covid nineteen, a lot of stuff can happen in a couple of months, but when I sat down with the Ohio, and we talked about a very specific moment, and this moment was when she realized that the America that she dreamed of and the one that she got were very different. So when you're going through the process immigrating to the United States, it's a very long process. There's a lot involved. There's tests lots of days to remember. Lots of facts memorize.

BBC or NPR here and we would listen to it as a family around lunchtime, and at the end right after they did like their programming, they would play songs, and our family was lover of music, and so they would make the males and females often do a lot of the duet songs.

You understand about the move and why you had to leave. So. We were living in a refugee camp, and so what I knew was going to be an opportunity for us to have normalized life. For me in particular was an opportunity to go to school to get an education and It was going to be an opportunity for us to to be safe. And to reorient our future and have path to prosperity. What was the Camp Lang, just like most of the of the refugee camps? I was in a camp in in Mombasa Kenya. So the the one thing that was unique was that in in most camps that US see pictures of now. They're in the desert like setting and ours wasn't really that way was a coastal Mombasa's a coastal city and so there was there was some lush trees at times and and there was like a like a dirty river or something like that that was a pond that was nearby answers, a lot of mosquitoes.

Championships way back in the nineties, so certainly your era of the NBA, and as closely as we looked at looked up to a Hakeem, being a local on sort of hero of you're sort of the the other Muslim in the League and so is equally exciting, so but like I said we have a lot to sort of unpack as we like to see on the show but where we like to often like to begin is kind of your origin story so. Maybe tell us about you know Chris Jackson and his life, and you know in and you growing up in the south, and in those experiences were like yeah, and I'm really really interested in hearing first time you touch the basketball, and when you really felt at home with the ball in your hand, and all those things I'm going gonNA. I'm going to be jumping in and asking questions because as you can see, I'm pretty exciting go. Numb note will your Ford. Remind me of missing anything Actually I. Can you want to? Start with that verse. First Time. Just the basketball really was. I was nineteen years old Nights to play Vassallo. My brothers Some reason always ended up playing with. Older older guys in now. When I look back I, said you know that's that was a huge plus for me, because those are the guys issue are fast strong when you finally get to your age group. It becomes easy play. John Age because you've been playing with older gasps. But I remember one day I was outside. Central Elementary. In I was playing game twenty one and this lady. Her real name is miss. Cookie or miss asa letter. What we call him is cooking and she was strong African American women like she. She didn't man screaming at you getting on your back in those days, even spanky. At all be playing and she said listen, she said come in Chris come in. Of course you go over there and I went over there, she said listen try out. I didn't even know that right next to me in the gym. It would try elementary. Right. Of Fourth Great in. I said Miss you'RE GONNA have to ask my mother, she said. Don't worry about it just going out. And because she saw something in me when I was playing I win in. Playing Street Ball I didn't know anything about organized while I. Mean I'm taking it driven through people and I'm making my shots. Coach added me listed son. You, gotTa pass the ball. And make a long story short. My first game in elementary school I remember. This guy named Aaron Ross. I'm nervous. Right man would i. do you follow me? By the end of the game. Of the game coach was giving me ISOS telling him get out my way. I ended up with twenty one points, my first game, and just to see the crowd, and the excitement man I was like man I love this atmosphere. is feels especially a little. You a black kid coming out of the ghetto. You know, mother you. Know File Right A. Grown up in poverty surrounded by drug addiction, mother had an eighth grade education. So you're looking at something, and you get this attention from a skill that you have. And now it's dawning on you the May. This could be something. Right. This could be a way out and so that was like really for me the beginning. That moment when they were screaming and yelling. And it wasn't it wasn't. It wasn't like pure. Not like. Your College College Teammate Shaquille. It wasn't like you were this massive. You know massive Guy Hulking Guy. You're probably based. There probably saw your quickness in your your agility new shooting right that that they that they liked yeah. I was I was born with. Vast which muscles being quick and explosive, but until you meant after that moment. I began to wake up. My regimen was four o'clock in the morning. Then I would wake up at five and for years. My Mother did know this was happening. Because I'm not about down a mother her to cut it off. Work to I mean at. And so I would wait until she left I. Heard the call. Crank the not get up. Get myself written. It's still dark outset at the attack. And I decided at that age of of Nanan Jianye said man. This is what I want to become. Be The best. and. I knew that I'd have to come up with a strategy because I'm small to give myself the best opportunity to do that something. What can you do that? Nobody else or not, too. Many people don't dawn at this aid. And I, just decided man. You GotTa Get Earth.
"omar" Discussed on Shock Wave News
"Omar calls for dismantling of the US economy and political system. So, I don't know how much you guys know. Ill. Hand over our Democrat from Minnesota She's A. Radical Democrat. She's Muslim radical Democrat. This crazy Marxist lawmaker called for capitalism to be destroyed in the name of social justice well. Isn't that special? Okay, and she goes on to say here in the Article via the Gateway Pundit. As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetrate this inequality, so we cannot stop at the criminal justice system Il il Han Omar said we must begin to work in dismantling the whole entire system of oppression. Wherever, we find it. then she goes on to say. According to documents and sources previously reported by Investigative Journalists David Steinberg Congressman Omar married her own brother in order to defraud the US immigration, service and factors evidence mounting that Ilhan. Omar isn't even her real name, so she has problems. Folks, it's it's obvious democrat. Elected to the House of Representatives of course, Democrat Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has all kinds of problems and issues. She has a lot of baggage and she likes to point the finger at everyone else in Congress likes to go on a tirade like Ao see alexandrio Casio Cortes Ilhan. Omar is just on the opposite side there in Minnesota and she likes to go to the house when she's in the House chambers and always start on the war path anytime. She's asked a question. Or, she asked a question or somebody asked her a question anytime. She can get to do grandstanding. She does, and that's what she's good at. She has a big mouth, but a very useless useless congresswoman. That has a big mouth. She's doing nothing for the good people of Minnesota. And in my humble personal opinion, she's embarrassing the Muslim establishment by run her mouth, not knowing what she's talking about incompetent and incapable, and hopefully they'll get her out of office. Vote her out of office this November along with Ao. See and the rest of the members of the squad, but let's continue the article here in finish up real quick. L. Han Omar refuses to answer questions about her fraudulent marriage to a brother, and accuses anyone asking her bigotry and Islam Phobia. That's a typical democratic move by the way. your your big at your homosexual. Your your Islamic of Islamaphobia. On and on and on the name calling starts. We can't have a debate about anything worthwhile without. Somebody on the other side of the aisle. The left side of the aisle always complain complaining. You're a big at your homophobe. You're this. You're that you're Islam Phobia. On and on and on. This is how this is part of the problem. They don't want to communicate. They want to be heard, but never be questioned as to their intentions, and so that's where the problem lies. They think that it's like do what I say. Not What I do type of rules in life, and that's not what works in the real world so..
Oysters, Clambakes and Grilling Run Amok
"Omar welcome to milk street. Thank you, thank you for having me It's great to have you Let's talk about your popup dinners. A called honeysuckle. Could you just describe what you serve and what the pop ups are like? The honeysuckle. It's a concept that uses food as the nucleus to explore various ideas of nuances of blackness in America specifically. And I say America specifically because. Black people in this country have. Quite quite quite the hurdle in our search identity in that many of us can't trace back our heritage. More than two grandparents ago and what a what tends to happen at least in my experience as a bike person, this country is that. People will ask me. Hey, where are you from? What is your nationality? But if I tell them that I'm just a black person, from Philadelphia, and that I'm American. That's kind of where the conversation stops. You know Africans and West Indians have a heritage. They have a flag Michael. tweet talks a lot about having a flag and his book, the cooking teen and having a flag like if you point towards the flag of Jamaica. What do you think of food? Wise? You think of oxtail. You think of rice and peas when you tell someone that you're an African American, most people only ever associate that with pain and then stereotypes. Under the American flag. So honeysuckle to me is. ME. Generating a flag for myself. It's not it's not just pain. Pain is pain as always there, but there were plenty of joys as well. You write poetry and you were to poem. Call folger's which. I of read fifteen times since I. So, could you just read that? Because I I'm not gonNA. Read your poem. You're GonNa have to read your. Sure folders soldiers is is one of my favorite ones I don't write love. poems often, but. Can we have coffee. I mean like really. Can we put down our words and swallow our breasts and hints of Cocoa Cinnamon and clove. Can I stare into your Brown eyes while the do of God washes over your face by our window next to the lips. Disturbs spoons course in our hearts, just black. Don't sugar neither. Only you and silk from Madrid to toews. FRIZZ, baby hairs and a t shirt. That now belongs to us. Can we have it until it's done. Can we fill our empty coffee bean with Greece Double Fryer chicken forever? Fabulous, Really I'm really glad that you like that bomb. Could you just? Explain a little bit about it. Yeah, But I'm not sure if you remember the commercial, the best part of waking up as folger's in your cup. And people who are in a relationship, the person that you love is the best part of Waking Up. When you when you wake up and you, you see that person next to you. and so in this in this poem, the car the coffee the STIMULI IS IS PARTNER You've had a very successful career. You ended up doing these pop ups. Something really believed in now. You're essentially back home. In Philadelphia you say there isn't much in my room, but a mattress leaning Bookshelf Eucalyptus plant that I found in a public flowerpot. It's Blue Gray and brings joy when the days are down so. What happens next you know? I, wrote the and I know soundly somber I think. The the communist comes from everything coming to a screeching halt, it was huge full. Stop at around March fifteenth when when I moved to Philadelphia, but all the. Things that I was doing prior to this pandemic. Was All leading me back to Philadelphia, and so I'm I'm in the place where I'm supposed to be. What's next is what I WANNA do is open. honeysuckle here the art that I do create. Speaks to the African American community and I would like to spread that over several different. Avenues such as a grocer, a coffee space, and still do dinners, but have it be a community center. The idea in the past was to open honeysuckle downtown, but What I want to do now is bring down to hood like that's. I would love to see the economy spread outward into into the pockets of those who need it. If you look forward five or ten years. In take a best case scenario. What would you like to see happen as a result of what we're going through now? What would be the best case for you? In terms of community or the way people think about food and culture. Restaurants were never about food. And I think that people. Don't understand that restaurants were always about people people I that needed food. So if we can. Start looking at that again. Everything else will fall into
Dealing With Financial Stress in Your Business
"The first thing I want to talk about in today's topic is. Where does this financial stress come from? And it's actually quite simple. It comes from a lack of visibility. It comes from a lack of understanding the dollars and cents of Your Business. How much money is going? And how much money's coming now? I get it as an entrepreneur. Many of us were not really numbers people. People were creative people. We'd like to build things we look to see things. Come to life. We want to be bogged down by all that kind of Mumbo jumbo right, but like I mentioned. Money is the maker and breaker of businesses. It's the lifeline and no matter how big or small your businesses whether you have a theme park, or you have an online business selling services. Money to run. It takes some money to pay yourself. It takes some money to keep it going into. So my first tip four today's lesson is to make sure you get some visibility, and you can easily do this by having some sort of financial adviser a cfo of some. Sort to take a look at your finances now you might be thinking Omar I'm going to spend money now to learn how to lower my stress. Well, this is actually money well spent, and you don't have to spend a lot and you don't need a fulltime CFO. You can hire somebody part time as low as three hundred to four hundred five hundred dollars a month. You can even just hire them for one project or one month. Just relieve this stress. Immediately and what they're going to do. They're GonNa Look at Your Ledger. They're gonNA look at your pianist. which is your profit and loss? They're going to create a profit and loss sheet, so they can say okay. This is all the money you're making for all these different sources. Here's how much you're making Wrigley. Every month is the total you made last year. Year this year, and then they're going to do the same for your expenses. You may have some spreadsheets around, but they're really going to look deep into it, and they're gonNA be able to be able to give projections and say hey, at this rate you'll be able to grow x amount, or you're able to kind of live off your earnings this much. Or. You need to act fast. You need funding right now, or you're not gonNA. Make they're going to give you a clear understanding of how big your problems are, and give you some options of how to relieve your stress, but if you don't know where you stand, you don't know how much of an issue your finances are causing you. You'RE NOT GONNA. Really know how to solve the problem so a simple profit law. She's going to be able to show you that and also show you. You know where you're heading now the other. Other thing that this person can do for you is give you an overview of your expenses and where you're making your money. Why is this important? You're in the weeds. You're building. You're working. You're delivering your service or product. You don't really see the overview They can take a look and say hey. By the way you're spending most of your money. Most of your expenses are these three things. Is there way you can negotiate? These prices of Nyu can lower these expenses. Somehow journey, we can subsidize finance somehow. Get these down. And, they're going to make a huge effect and allow you to release some of that stress by having an overview of those expenses. They're going to be able to say. Hey, here is where you're getting hurt the most. Let's solve these problems. This is where most of our efforts will make most impact same thing with the profits I. Think it's look at how you're making your money and say you know by the way you're making most of your money with this product or this service. You may not know this. You may not be exposed this. You might think you know, but. But, they kind of highlight say you're not forty percent of the income you make is from this product, and this product actually doesn't cost you as much as the other products, so you're actually making more profit, so maybe push this product more because it makes the whole business
Keeping in Check: Maintaining Spirituality in the Influencer Space (ft. Omar Shahid)
"Salaam welcomed another team via podcast brought to you by the Vibe as always I'm your host. Salim Qasim and this week I'm joined by from the Muslim influence and network. The Muslim infants networker, celebrating their third birthday. And I've known Omar for for quite a few years now. And we discuss or about to discuss I guess the general landscape of of influences and the whole space Muslim influences and representation and also I guess how. Influences can. Maintain that sincerity. We spoke a lot about sincerity. which I think is a really important point. When thinking about the the the the digital space and people growing their own platforms. And why they're doing it and whatever else? We also talk a lot about evenly. Miller who was on a previous podcast with us? I can't remember the episode number. It was called a slum in the hood. It was just a few weeks actually before the whole lockdown and Shenanigans took place. We had a fantastic conversation. Please do inside podcast. By.

I guess if people do listen back to that in check out the Compensation, we had the shed so much and shows guests like for me. These people uninfluenced should be especially in the kind of in space. But we also discussed on their the fact that we should probably have a separate compensation yourself. Because I think there's a lot to discuss generally around this space. But I staw- off with. Can you share with us with myself? Whatever a little bit of background is the to how you saw at out in Western influences I'm wet weather. The idea came from just a is the genesis of that was the funds the network? Yes so. I'm. Twenty years old colleagues on the. I've been working with influences for. Seven years now. and. It started when I was. Using my. Sheet Autism who approached me and said you know what we don't want to us. Seem that used to be a journalist and use? Oh, Amid if we have some insights into what we're trying to do. So I, said you know what I don't know anything about influence. A management I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what to advise you, but you know what s give it a shot. Silently? We started with them some. In music, the sheet industry. Led to another working with a comedian photographer. You and then someone in school it's. And the previous manage people like cottage city can. Become Allah talked about. cross poss with managing advisers are not. The. Is and what?

She wants a campaign together and off to the campaign will be realizes up is actually no one to represent. These guys know into the the cough to them. That will being. No one to think about the future and it's kind of like wild wild west. It's no one nobody really knows what they're doing. Just kind of screwing industry that nobody knows what's what's going on,

From BlackPlanet to Black Twitter, the evolution of Black voices on social media
"Users have created trends and memes and viral movements and agitated for change for years on social media. Think April rain and Oscar so white. Even the black lives matter movement itself, which was born in a facebook post by an Oakland activist and took life on twitter now as protests over police, brutality and systemic. Continue social media is a tool for organizing amplifying arguing yes, it can also often be a racist dumpster fire, but experts say that a big messy public square might actually be the best place to create lasting political change. Omar Oiseaux was one of the founders of the social media, Black Planet and early place for black expression online as it happens, he is now a professor at Princeton, studying race and protest what we've seen since the rise of sites like facebook and twitter is the emergence of other sites of black expression, and in particular like twitter I think has become a real engine of articulating black concerns and a kind of forum where there's a a a a live debate going on around the clock, something like black lives matter as an example of an idea emerging on twitter championed by activists and organizers to become a national and. And International, movement and I think twitter is I think where most of that highly political conversation and action is happening. Where isn't it happening? We've heard for years that facebook often takes down posts by black users talking about racism, because the Algorithm flags it as hate speech, I'm not aware of facebook having any particular anti-black Iridium's, but I do find the algorithms that emphasize discussion among your friend of a friend network are going to have significant racial implications. White people are mostly going to be talking to white people. Black people are mostly going to be talking to their friends, and it makes it harder to have a a A. A A community wide conversation where white people can hear what black people are saying where black people can converge behind Hashtag, who might not know each other, but have common interests? FACEBOOK is really much more set of private conversations. Private conversations don't lend themselves to the kind of collective action that can turn into protests and have real political a consequences. You've said that you WANNA see a more fragmented multipolar internet. Tell me about that idea, and whether the protests and like you said this sort of engine of collective action has changed that thinking at all part of what was really exciting in the early days of social media was this. This kind of thousand flowers, blooming sort of experience there was planted out for the LGBTQ community and variety. FACEBOOK has homogenized the Internet. You don't have to know anything about html for formatting a webpage one of the challenges that you want to be able to have tools that allow you to moderate and have a kind of broad conversation, but sometimes you, you want to have a conversation within group conversation right and you know on something like planet out. You might have had a different kind of conversation than it is on facebook, and you know we may move towards something that's that's less consolidated, but the trend seems to be. Increasingly there are one or two dominant players in every aspect of the web and I think something's lost in that Omar. Oiseaux was a founder of the Social Media Site Black Planet. He now studies race and protest at Princeton.
"omar" Discussed on The Good Fight
"Depressed housing markets twenty years later similarly look at the jobs markets, and they find employment markets are depressed twenty years later and you know. How would that be on some cases in a place like DC or some of the other cities that had very big violent protest events following king's assassination, a bunch of buildings go up in flames, and that that affects not only. Only the residents making the actual infrastructure, black community, less comfortable, less amenable, but are whites who already feel a high degree of threat from blocks you throw in a large violent protests, and there's this exodus of whites, and so there's just kind of this cascade of things that followed the violent protests in that period that show up twenty years later in housing employment market, so in a material way these protests activities are having. Having really long term consequences for black communities I was interested being punked scientists, and are there political consequences not twenty years later, but in the same year nine, hundred sixty eight happens to be an election year and so I. Look at the rainfall in April predict voting in November. It's what I find. Is that rainfall in? April does predict voting in November and what I do find is more conservative shift if you're county was. was proximate to more violent protests activity. It votes more conservatively if they make it. Really Clear County wasn't exposed to more violent protest activity. We don't see that shift says about a six to eight point shift for counties that were proximate to this protest activity, and we might worry that like that's being driven by something like I don't know. Geography rainfalls correlated with geography and rainfall is correlated. geographies correlated with voting behavior. Behavior so I also, it's just a an additional test. I said well. We shouldn't expect rainfall before king is assassinated to influence voting in November, and so I look in the pre period, and in fact, rainfall before king is assassinated, has no predictive power on voting November rainfall in the latter half of April has no predictive power on voting in November. Ninety five percent of the protests occur in the week following King's assassination and And, all of the predictive power is really in that week. In other words, we shouldn't expect an effect. There is no effect trade. It's not just geography. It's not just some spurious correlation. What these results suggest it's only where we really have a strong protest effect that week following king's assassination that rainfall almost certainly through the channel of violent protest activity is causing a rightward shift and more conservative shift in the voting electorate. And I promise to my listeners that if you have a smart objection Tubas paper. Would you haven't read this people more likely Bernard? Omar has specifically addressed. You're smarter. By finding out of Dad and finding a way of taking action seriously and addressing that I find so fascinating about that paper based economists. Is To give sort of empirical grounding to a lot of the things that we've heard in the past weeks. When the latter he shallan spartans talks about the HUD to Atlanta. That may result is turn bond when you hear that I ve inwards of towns Floyd but Bravo of George Floyd about him, not wanting destruction in his own community, and all of the consequences that would entail in the name of his brother. They are drawing on Glib experience of the impacts of violent protests that basic communists sort of documented in social sciences. Sciences and satistics way now a lot of people have been using go paper in the last days in one way or another to draw inferences about his moment and look I think obviously in which your people that you've worked for over ten years happened to be published at a moment when it has things to say about today, but also well the fact that probably some consequences of implications that people try to grow out. More simple minded than you had in mind. How do you think you've you of a tragic events of last week's is informed by the research. You've been doing for the last decade. It's very perceptive point. Let me just step back and say you know I feel like I've been struck by lightning like the paper that have been working on for. You know it's become a joke among friends and family that this thing is just you know it's right around the corner cutting published it finally got published, and then out of nowhere it becomes exceedingly relevant to current events. Then you sort of as a academic hope. Your work is read by anybody, right. I read something like a third of social. Social Science papers never get cited at all, and so this is sort of the opposite extreme of just suddenly finding that something I had been sitting with for so long is of interest and relevance to so many people, and I'm both gratified by that, and also it's a source of some sadness that something that is half-century-old is still so pressing and urgent, and that these kinds of injustices still kind of echo today, so that's just kind of the lived experience for me, which has been a little bit head-spinning. And then more generally I've been very struck by something that I still don't fully have my arms around, but their protests they symbolize A. And I'm still struggling to pin down. What are we talking about? Sometimes when we're actually talking about protests and I think they're. They're kind of a couple of ways. This is played out in the larger public discourse, so one of the ways that King even talks about in letter from Birmingham jail is this kind of one class of response one way the paper has been taken up which is to say Oh, you're not protesting the right way and King chastises the people who he's writing obviously from Birmingham. He takes issue with people saying you keep telling US you're concerned about how we're not protesting the right way. You do not exhibit a similar level of concern for the underlying injustice. We are protesting. Right and so my sort of empirical paper that says Oh nonviolence more effective violence might be less effective is I think in some cases mobilized by voices WanNa say something. Critical of the protests understand that George. Floyd was killed while we heard him cry for his mother. The taking of his life is so great that you. You can't criticize people's anger about that, so there's a kind of rhetorical maneuver which is to shift the conversation. Conversation to Oh. It's the wrong tactics, and that's certainly not my project to say I want to tell people what are appropriate ways to express their morning or their grieve for their anger, but I see some of the ways in which the paper has been taken up that it feels like going back to king's insight. There's a desire not to engage with the kind of the core injustice at play, and so I've tried as more. More attention has come to the paper to kind of keep coming back. To why are we protesting? Like? What is this about? There is at its core, a man who was murdered by a police officer, and that's part of a long history and that I have to come to take off. My social science had a little and just kind of sit with. What does that feel like? How might feel like for others? Why is that? That the thing that is so powerful and so mobilizing, and then there are other things, but let me pause there, and just saying I I kind of interested in how protests as a symbol are operating in some ways independent of what we actually see on the ground, and that's what I'm still trying to make sense of and I didn't anticipate as I was working in the in those computer labs trying to put the paper together. Yeah..

"The Dave icon I have to say is the one and only Mr Omar EPPs. Hello I'm good. Thank you for joining me today. So this is basically going to be a lovefest in celebration of I'll be amazing contributions that you have made to black people in film television etc etc. But I I WANNA talk about Omar before Omar. He wanted to be an actor. So I hear a little Birdie told me that you grew up in New York in East flatbush and live in flatbush right now. It is in my favorite part of Brooklyn. I grew up in flatbush right. That's what I wanted to ask you because right now flab wishes it's it's just about starting to get a little gentrified I think Tell me what it was like when you were. There was great growing up in New York. Times and You know it was just a different time. It was it was it was dangerous. It was exciting. You know But that sense it you know. The New York community was really strong. In all the different cultures and the different food and Different ethnicities different belief systems. All that stuff I think poured into me. You know as a kid growing up in New York and I think it helped me autry moving forward and you IDA straight. How do you think your artistry would have been different if you were from anywhere else? I can't answer that question because the great artists from all over the world. There's no my experience you know it. It helped open my mind. You know to to see different ways of life and the wise in the history of different cultures at such a young age Helped me open my mind? And and I think in being an actor in being in these different characters and he's different journeys it's allow me to sort of stretch my muscle. If you will in a different way where were you introduced to the arts like? When did the when did you know that like okay? This is the thing that I might want to do for me. It was always in my family my my grandfather his soul he was a jazz musician My grandmother was she was just a renaissance woman. She she was saying noushin educator. She was a photographer. She's written books. You know so like when when I was a kid. She had a a darkroom at show. You how far back that was. She's to really develop pictures and she was just always had artistic mind and and so for me. I was into literature. Pretty early into like poetry. And things of that nature you know dabbling around with music and And then I did a school play and That's when I got bit by that that proverbial bug they talk about the play It was grease grease grease play. Duty Duty was like one of the dues over there. But you know I got some be on stage and experienced that that That that feeling in in that connection with audience and and and then for me also as well when I was growing up Sidney portier was was my acting hero and use his power. His elegance is grace That permeated offscreen really spoke to my spirit's once I did that. School play was like I think I want to try this. Yeah did you feel like you were good at it I felt that I was better than Arrow graves. Who In my junior? High School was written to be successful actor in our yearbook. Sorry I still remember this guy like that etched into my memory. I'm going to be a bit active Earl Greece. We need that for people to come from somewhere somewhere so I also know that you went to Laguardia High School which if I understand correctly is like the high school from fame and while you were there you went to school with Marlon Wayans of the Wayans clan of approximately eight thousand children counting counting counting indeed. So while you were in high school where you also like out auditioning and getting gigs and working and in addition to being a kid going to school mauling I used to audition for commercials and he would always beat me out cool because that's my boy but You know we were doing stuff like that like nothing major but you gotta remember. I'm in school with like D'andre Whitfield you know school with car pain like these guys on the cosby show. Pass them in the hallway. Like whoa this thing is real And so you Kinda you know what? I enjoyed my my school time. I'm glad I didn't work that early. Because I really feel specifically for actors you need a life to pull from To pour back into your characters and even though I got started early I mean I did use when I was seventeen but my seventeen back then was like the average twenty five year olds now so that scene been through so much well speaking of juice. Thank you for offering like the second as I did I did. I didn't know this natural chemistry. This is your first film ever ever ever. Is that correct? When I first heard that I was like no way. There's no way that this was his first film because it was just the acting in. That film was phenomenal. And I think it showed me a world that I was like. I don't I don't know if this happened in the world like are there black people like like this and like this. I basically mean like different from me. I grew up in Kentucky which has parts and everything would just like the depth that we saw the characters and of course pots performance I would imagine that you get asked a lot about this idea. That playing bishop. Which was pox. Role changed him like by the end of the movie. Is that something that you hear a lot? No no no. That wasn't that wasn't it was already on his way. I mean he was writing his first album While we were filming the movie he he had already been semi famous because you know his whole experience with digital underground and so he was sort of breaking into his own and it was both of our first films but pack was Was An actor a train actor and And that's why those performances were so great and I think that also the timing of win juice was happening. It was just magical because you have to look at like the call it the culture now but his hip hop it was all happening at the same time so it was all exploding at the same time and we were sort of that second wave after Spike. Lee of the young culture so for us we were these four kids. We could so relate to it because it was us. We didn't necessarily know each other personally but it was easy to put okay. He's at archetype. He's at archetype he's a you know. An impact Nye had a somewhat similar dynamics to bishop and q while sort of the you know responsible one and he was sort of renegade But he was a great career. Brother do you remember where you were when you heard the news that she got throw you? I was I was at home. Yeah it was at home and the phone rang is before we had cell phone the phone rang and it was earns Dickerson and then he said hey man you got to roll and I was like wow you know. I was incredible and call my mom. She was like all right cool but it was like chill about it well because it was We didn't know exactly what was happening. You know because even those my first film like I was taking. The train is set. You know I lived at the time in East New York and we were filming all the way in Harlem so I ended up going to stay with the first ad because he lived downtown Brooklyn so it was easier to you know it was still brass tacks. It wasn't like most. We're coming to pick me up and we were helicoptering. You know what I mean so it was still you know You know was still grounded. The experience of it was still grounded but it was It was incredible. It was incredible. It was it was also dangerous again. We film in like in the Mid alluded hood and Harlem and Harlem was a different place back then. Two very different place back then. That's when you know I mean. Pack was befriending certain cats on the set and the next thing we know why we at lunch they running up in his trail still jewelry and stuff so is though New York. This is a real quick. I was GONNA ask.

I don't know my destiny. That's what I'm supposed to be. So I know you know about Omar EPPs but watch I know that Omar EPPs on his Lee. Where do you even begin with my ups? I mean he's he's almost. He played a do named q twice in two different movies. It does not get any more economic or legendary or black then that this is the man that got a career defining role straight out of high school.

"Been linked to political parties all the major parties at one point or another have had political militias that were involved in lawlessness over the boss. Dior ideas and so the story kind of flips restarted in the prisoner and kind of look sitted looks at what the city looks like. And what the history of. The story of the city is through the eyes of men who are who kind of got sucked up into political activism. And where that political activism crossed over into political militancy sedating stuff. It's a story that I think I felt needed to be told. Because as a resident of Karachi Karachi has had this kind of issue political from the mid nineteen eighties. You know. Now we're looking at almost sort of almost forty years of history off of violence in the city. And and no one's really written about you know. I felt that a lot of writers fiction writers as well as nonfiction writers would kind of Britain before me and wooden about the city. Perhaps focused on a lot more idyllic elements of of life in the city. But in my view you couldn't live in the city and you couldn't be right about Karachi without writing about this thing that's been there for the last thirty forty years. Which is the the violent city? You go onto violence of a different sort. And that's a sport in. You're an expert which is called the fix and that focuses on cricket. Tell us a little about that. Yeah I think after the first three books you know. The first three books were very clear through genre thrillers and I wanted to move we. Match fixing in cricket is something that I'm a cricket fan and when you kind of look at the story of match-fixing especially in Southeast Asia. It's it's a fascinating morality and you know it's it's Shakespeare could originate the deal of young men who are bestowed with all the physical troops and gifts that a young man can be given a who have Indian nations and Dia country's falling at their feet because of the amazing talent that they have and yet this on the darker side. There's this attraction to throw that all away for for money. I started researching that and the more and more I started researching match fixing in cricket. It kind of coalesced in my mind that this was the story right. You talk about young men but of course you focus in this book on a women's cricket team while I was researching the book before I started writing. I remember sort of coming. Cross a whole bunch of articles about members of the women's team and again what struck me was and despite being an ardent cricket fan up to that point I had been on north engine women scripted and I think if you were to ask most Pakistan cricket fans perhaps cricket in a lot of countries they would say the same thing it was just something that was totally ignored by by the mainstream but when I started looking into these reading articles in these stories it was amazing because it was his added element of women cricketers being complete. Underdogs never been given a chance by that. Cricket boards by their families in many cases by their peers looked down upon by their male colleagues. Remember we've famous story which someone related to me about the captain. The box on women's team being door by a former Baucus tanny desks cricketer. Who's WHO's employed as a coach at that time by the Cricket Board and subsequently by the England critic board you know and these women were doing some sort of practice or exercise at the National Cricket Academy and this Cricketer said. Don't waste your time. Why don't you go home and play with bautzen bands or do the cooking something? So is that sort of misogynistic. Attitudes are there so as a storyteller. I thought it would be amazing if I could combine the story of women cricketers rising despite all the odds that are in front of them and then when they kind of actions succeed in doing that when they get to. The Dolphin Start winning matches when they become popular. When the big you know sort of contracts and advertisement money starts coming in. They become an an attractive dog for match-fixing who previously have kind of gotten the hand onto the men's scheme but because the rise successful women's cricket makes them a dog for those same fixes. And we've just had such a fascinating discussion here in front of a very energized and engage live audience all about cricket about postcolonial national identity. And how all of this works and it really is desperately important to who we are as nations but cricketing nations. I mean like Pakistan or like my own Zimbabwe I think cricket please in countries that and we discussed this earlier at the talk that in countries that are still struggling to find their identity in countries that are still at the adolescent stage of maturity as a country symbols of national unity or symbols of outward pride become very important and sport becomes very important because obviously of trying to project yourself and which is why countries like Pakistan like India. You don't like South Africa Zimbabwe's where sport becomes very important and very dear in the cultural context of the growth of those countries in the cultural wrote. What about your own cultural growth? What's next for you one of the things that I WANNA keep changing? I write about Abe partially because I get bored of writing seem stuff. This is more fun to look at different things so I started work on another book. This one is a spy thriller. It's sort of looking at imagining kind of classic sixties seventies lend eaten John Lagarde. I word but taking it again in putting it in what I feel is the modern Cold War between India and Pakistan. So that is. We are at the Berlin Wall of the twentieth century. So I'm working on that. Now the spinners tail is the most recent book by Omar Shaheed Honeyed.

That's natural for a kid to feel and I would convert it into into fuel to push me forward and and I was able to have this artistic expression to release lease it you know. So what did you. What did you think when you started acting? She was you know she was cool with it was I was a psych. You know 'cause my mom was that she was a teacher and abortive for thirty years. So she's you know you're going to school. You're going to be a lawyer going to be on me and I was like you know. Go Audition for this Performing I'm not school. She wanted me to go to a different high school. She she comes with me to the audition My audition for vocal enacting. And then when we left she was like likes you. Didn't I said there's no way I didn't get into their school. And she's she's looking at me. Like very cocky right you know and so go to school and I'm doing my thing and then when I got out when I graduated I was like I think I'm GonNa take some time to figure out because you know I'm a New Yorker mccade from Brooklyn New York it's like you're GonNa go do stage and and that summer ride you know went on this audition and book my Gig and so. I'm Tom Doing a movie. She's kind of like Okay let's go Komo. It didn't resonate with my mom until we were at the premiere of juice. And Diana. Ross is sitting since away from my goodness and my Mama's the Diana Ross really doing a movie we we always laugh when we reminisce about that. But that's when she he was like Oh you like you're really doing this like attention to kind of you know. My my personality is more laid back. Jack I'm more of an observer and and and my process My creative process is a bit introverted. So it wasn't like you know I was coming home at the time telling her about this scene or this I was just you know making it seem like just another day at work you know but when she saw the finished product she was proud. I was that must've been so special though. I mean anytime I am a sap. I'm a huge APSO. Whenever I see parents with their kids at the Oscars and I say kids as an you are still a the kid to your mother right well? It doesn't matter if you're fifty years old when you see that though and the joy and the pride. I don't think there's anything but it's something. Actually premiers premieres can be crazy. But I look forward to those moments when you see the family together and you see that they're getting to celebrate It's really special. I went to the trick premiere of the other day. Your gorgeous wife and son in it you know it makes me smile. It does because you're sharing it and I can tell you growing up my dad doing what he's always done figuring out at that certain point Okay he's on TV and that's why people know him okay and he writes books okay. But he's my dad and then one day having people start coming up and saying you know Your Dad's the reason I love movies. Your Dad's the reason that I write about movies or you're you're talking about the cinematographer earlier. WHO said that he Ernest Ernest? WHO said that? He admitted me bragging. He said to my dad that it was his book book on cinematography that got him interested and this is precious and so it brings me joy to see your son there because I know that he's sitting there going. That's my dad. I mean you know whatever you do in life you know if if you able to find some level of success and success this is relative you know it's is as a parent you do it for your kids you know and and for me you know the flipside for like for me being this seventeen year old kid from Brooklyn you know from single parent household you know and to share that moment with my mom's age you know all those seeds you planted coming harvest now and I'm not a lawyer but look who's sitting next to you but that was those great memories because there's nothing like the first a lot of times last share. Oh what's your favorite this and for me. I don't have a favorite honestly because every project and every character that to me me. They're all like pieces of a giant mosaic. That's incomplete but but there's nothing like the first. It was juice as well like. That's it's a big deal and and you know and you worked with two pucks occur. Yeah we're we're to mind blowing. I mean that's another. He was He was an amazing guy and One of those people that changed the energy changes when they walk in a room. And I don't I know what that thing is. We call it x factor. We call it whatever we call it but he had. He had that thing where it's like. Who Do you want to know? What's what's he about you know? And he you know he was so smart and And so talented. You know he had we. We had so much fun. Just I'd like to call it. Doing the dance is is is. What acting is what we just had so much fun because we would just sparring kids during our first film and He was he was he was nineteen. Yeah then he was recording his first album. He was writing his first album at that time. And one of my really great memories is 'cause you know like at Ed lunchtime. He's called me in the trailer and he'd start wrapping. Say something about. Yeah that's cool that's cool and then one one morning He was reading the newspaper deeper and a woman had thrown a baby into the incinerator. which is horrible right but sad to say but in New York in those times like that was normal to hear stories like that so I was aside like you know that happens? Every day managed messed up and he was just so affected by the whole day talking about it so much time rolls around and he's like he may come into the trailer and okay and he's doing this rap and I'm like okay that's cool not putting two and two together and then months later. His first album comes out in this song. Brenda Brindell got a baby. Brenda's got a baby comes on. I'm like Whoa like that's the that's what he was writing about from that news paper article and and that right there to me encapsulate his cancer. Lisa's jeans you know what What I mean? That's pretty that's crazy. Wow Yeah yeah but we add You know we had a lot of fun working with Ernest and You Know Sam Jackson Queen Latifah and it was just a great time For or I will say it was for black cinema at that point because you know we'd had out spike Lee reset the bar. Sure right sure game. Changing he was game changing in and so now is that the next wave of was coming inside think of Jews. I think our boys in the hood I think of Minister Society and like you know and all these films were being made and coming out around the same time so it was a magical time. Well I I was a kid and I remember. That's why when people bring up now that they don't They don't know about this they don't about that and I go. Oh my God is a kid. It was the biggest thing you know. I'm born in the eighties like that's when it was hitting and hard and you know for me like at the trick from Mir Marlon Williams was there and I turned around and he was standing behind me and I had a heart attack. Because I am a Wayne's brothers child I love them like I will sit at the altar of Wayne's brothers all day long all fifteen thousand oh right you know and that's the fact that you came up with some of them I am and that it's it's all really it special. That's the thing you can't we can't make things happen with timing. We can't force situations but it is really special. Yeah and I think I think when I think back to it now I think the fact that there was no social media of course made things more special. That's one thing I worry about now with not just kids. Just people in general is that we're so inundated with information and content that everything's just disposable. You know like you I think about you think back to certain albums you would live with that album for three years. You would cherish that out now. It's like it's gone in a week. You know and and and the the same thing with the film and Television you would live with this thing and you couldn't wait to see it again in an wonder if people still have those those types of connections to art you know I don't I don't know but I just feel like social media makes everything so so accessible that it's just like us not special any. Yeah yeah no I mean when you went to tower records as a kid growing appear like that was I saved up my allowance and going via CD and it was a huge deal. Because that's what I get. That meant nothing else. I was getting that CD. Would go down there even browse bouncing your pocket. I do though in our house we We definitely like things so we have many book a LASERDISC. DVD BLU ray. I'm surprised there's not analog somewhere we have film we got thirty five minute we got. We got film downstairs. It's but I think it is that is i. I like them to be real And with a CD even lighter notes and things like that that was really important to and and I'm not even mentioning Vinyl. We have plenty vinyl much draining myself. That was a piece of two and then even with DVD's they would start to come out with before it was everything on the DVD. But like there'd be interview view things like that and it was like like you say like it was precious. You want to read the lyrics who produced. That song wrote Rice thing and you know you wanted to see the. Ah The dedications. Yeah you don't like all that stuff to me was is was part of the package that was being presented. You know from those artists. I just I. I don't know if if that has If that still exists in a different capacity with a certain generation a younger generation sure I don't know But these days I just you know because art for me is the thing that makes the world go round choirs all forms of art right like this art in food. equalizers of humanity's keeps us together. Because it's where those things strip away You whatever your political thoughts are whatever years. Socio economic things are with the whole tribalism of it all gets shipped away now. We're just sitting around eating eating food. Everybody gets angry. You know and then and this is how we. Oh I've never had this this from your culture. We'll try this from mine and it's like Oh wow I love that now and this is how we exchange in in progress so that means something to me that people still have that connection. Are you know because it's what even when you look look at the the art that's being made now like you know you couldn't no studio would have invested in something like moonlight twenty years ago. Yeah think about you. Yeah you know what I mean. Now you're getting to tell like stories to to to give a voice to the voiceless yeah essence and it's all through art and people are able to learn People of course entertained but it's like for someone who might have been closed minded in a certain way they could watch that film in it we give them a different review of people from that that walk of life that it fires empathy right. You know and which which is the key to so much the key to so many so many issues and problems is a lack of exactly? What's exciting about to me? Someone like you someone like Barry Jenkins because you really love all of this and it's a part of you you are excited to share it and you want to share it. You know. That's when you meet a Devante. That woman is is one of the most impressive humans ever like she she she is power and she is lovely and warm. And you know it's like thank you for being the person doing that. Very Jenkins same thing. We know him from telluride Film Festival. I would scoop popcorn with him like he you know he loves movies. Another so call overnight success. We love those thirty years overnight. Great but that. I think I hope that they will keep a lot of this alive as well And even if it's just that we still go to the movies and so you're in a theater with other people I'll take it. You know as I say I because we were having having you on and your publicist saying here the movies that you know they're coming out next and what I found out that I could see trick instead of having to watch as link at home which happens. It's fine but it was premiered. Scream fest. We'll let me go see this in a theater because first of all to scary movie. It's much like it should be seen in a theater with people you know. It shouldn't wouldn't be something where I'm by myself so you know that. That's what makes it fun that audience. They were laughing they they were a raucous and to your point though. It's one of those things that was another thing I was. I mean the film. The movie theater is is not going to die and about five years ago or maybe seven years ago when streaming was really starting to take off. I was Kinda concerned about that because I was thinking. Do people even still care air about that communal experience and they do you know whether whether it's a film like trick or you know whether it's out on the old Black Panther or you know what I mean like you know these films they feel better when it's a it's a community Ryan Cooler someone else who loves movies and loves art and amazing. He's a he's he's such a gem he's another one like I get. I get excited. Because I talked to him and his wife Hifu is amazing to like and they are so they just they want to make things and they want to support people who are making things and it isn't even that they're just promoting their stuff they wanna make sure that everything gets out there.

"Omar. Has actually set herself up to be sued for libel. Why? The boys were protesting. She tweeted a boy the boys were protesting a woman's right to choose and yelled. It's not rape. If you enjoy it. No there is zero evidence of that. She tweeted the boys were taunting five black men before they surrounded Phillips and lead racist chants. No, there's no evidence of that whatsoever. And then she tweeted the San man's. That's the kids family hired a right wing PR for to write his non apology. What was he to apologize for?

Do you think anybody's learned anything from this? I doubt it. By the way, Phillips, the Indian did not serve in Vietnam. Nor is there any reason to believe that the young victims of his bantering are bigots. Which leads me to the weekly standard founder Bill Kristol. Former weekly standard founder. If I were the Bishop of the diocese of Covington. I would humbly ask Mr. Phillips to be the commencement speaker at a certain high school. They just won't let it go.
