Ray Brescia, Albany Law School: Social Distance and Social Change

"One Sunday night fifty five years ago tens of millions of Americans gathered to watch television broadcast of judgment at Nuremberg dramatic depiction of the post World War Two trials of German judges for their behavior during the Holocaust. With star studded cast it promised ratings gold. Once underway news alerts interrupted the broadcast that showed civil rights activists including the late John Lewis being beaten on the Edmund Pettus. Bridge. Since judgment at Nuremberg addressed the culpability of ordinary Germans for Nazi atrocities. The juxtaposition of the images was striking and helped galvanize public support for what would become the voting. Rights Act. But the leaders of the civil rights movement were not the first to utilize the most modern means of communication available to them to bring about social. Change. Since the dawning of the American experiment, social movements have long captivated our attention to advances in communications technology. The sons of liberty utilize the printing press, the women's movement of the Mid Nineteenth Century the telegraph. But the technology itself has not brought about change no in addition to utilizing advances and communications technologies these and other successful social movements have also operated through grassroots networks built on face to face encounters and embraced positive unifying messages that stress shared interests over difference. Today we facing unprecedented public health crisis that keeps us out of physical distance must also confront dramatic racial and economic inequalities. As, advocates have done in the past though we can leverage technology to create community across distance to see that we are deeply connected and must work together to bring about lasting change that was very brush of Albany, law?

Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis

"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in. Nashville in nineteen sixty and becoming one of the original freedom writers Mr Lewis joined the Movement for civil rights and never looked back. As the chairman of snake he served as the youngest speaker at the march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three. In nineteen, sixty, five alongside reverend hosea, Williams Congressman Lewis led a march for voting rights across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where he endured violent attacks by state troopers and vigilantes. Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John. Lewis has been about his activism, but he stood on so many legislative accomplishments including sponsoring or co sponsoring more than eleven hundred bills. One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.

Can you talk about it? Look essentially what President Obama was saying is, if we wanna honor John Lewis's legacy, truly honor it. We need to finish the work of John Lewis's lifetime. Which is to ensure voting rights, for all with no obstacles in anyone's way and in effect. What he did with his rhetoric is he entered the political fray not directly not through partisan attacks, but with clear and pointed assaults on those Particularly Republicans, who were doing exactly what John Lewis fought against all of his life, which is to undermine the voting rights of the American people, So he did it through lofty and impassioned rhetoric. But his message was clear. He was definitely part former president and part preacher today, talking about the protests as well, something that Louis energized in his day is a civil rights leader, nearly losing his life in the fight. Can you characterize what Mr Obama said, and its relevance at this moment in history? So, in essence, what President Obama did was draw a straight line from Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge from Bull Connor in Birmingham. ER, George Wallace. The black lives matter. And the civil rights struggles of today are voting rights struggles of today. So you know, he basically said Bull Connor may be gone, But today we witness with our own eyes, police officers. Kneeling on the next of black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But then, he said he worries about the federal government's sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. Clearly referencing what happened in Lafayette Square when President Trump wanted to go to the church and hold up his Bible. So he drew a straight line from John Lewis in the 19 sixties tow what's happening today, and clearly, that was a strong message that this next generation now has to take the torch. And continue on with the fight that John Lewis began when he was just Ah, young, a young man in 1960 CBS News political analyst Leonard Steinhorn Thanks so much for being here. Thanks Always. By the

Rep. John Lewis Makes Final Stop in Atlanta

"Rights activist and icon who became a moral force in the United States. Congress will be laid to rest. Today. He's been celebrated in a series of memorials this week and this past Sunday, he received a hero's sendoff in his native state of Alabama. And on Monday, Congressman Lewis was honored in Washington, DC It was an emotional Ceremony with lawmakers. His colleagues Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, played a portion of a speech that Lewis gave to graduates at Emory University in 2014. As young people. You must understand that there are forces that would take us back to another period. But you must know that would mark warned by way made too much progress and we're going to make you some step back. Some delays some disappointment, but you must never give up. I give in. You must keep the faith and keep so eyes on the prize. That is so calling. That is your mission That is tomorrow. Obligation that is oh, man. They get out there and do it getting away. Lewis lay in state in the Capitol Rotunda following the ceremony, making him the first black lawmaker to receive that honor. And today, Congressman Lewis comes home to Atlanta, Georgia. The funeral service is being held at the historic Ebeneezer Baptist Church, where the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr was once co pastor and joining us Now is Emma Hurt. She's a reporter with our member station W. A. B in Atlanta, and she joins us live from outside of Ebeneezer Baptist and Emma describe what it's like there where you are right now. Hi, Emma. Can you hear me? Emma will be joining us shortly. She is outside of Ebenezer Baptist Church. Now let's go to Debbie Elliot. We'll check back in with Emma. And just a few moments. Hi, Debbie. How are you? I am good. I know that you spent a lot of time in Alabama over the weekend. There were several memorials and services. It was quite a scene. Right. You know, I think the thing that stands out the most was was when he was in Selma and his casket was on this horse drawn carriage. And it crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge, of course, that iconic place where he was met with state troopers and sheriff's deputies who beat him up in a peaceful march for voting rights. Back in 1965 and people had come to sort of witness him make that Symbolic final crossing. Yeah, you've been You've known the congressman for for many years. You spoke with him back in 2015 at that. Edmund Pettus Bridge. Tell us about that. Yes. So this was in advance of 50th anniversary celebrations marking You know, 50 years since the Voting Rights Act passed because of that horrible incident on that bridge. The nation in the world really became aware of the brutality against African Americans who were pushing for equality in the American South. And so I met him there. We stood at the foot of the bridge, and we had a conversation about what it was like back then. And let's listen to a little bit, and he describes what happened on that came before. Beating us. Shrimping with horses. Releasing the tick and I was getting here. A state trooper with the night stick. My legs went from under me. I thought I was going to die. I thought I saw death. He thought he saw death, You know, and this was a moment where he had been that the the sheriff's deputy in the state troopers told them you have to turn back. We're not going to let you march to Montgomery. And they asked to kneel in prayer and as they went to kneel in prayer before they were going to turn back and go back to their churches. They were told. The meeting started. Tell me what's so powerful about that moment in history is that it was it was. It was a time where people were able to see for the first time the brutality. Those images were so powerful. It was labeled bloody Sunday and it sped up the passages you said of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Debbie will will come back to you a little later to talk more about that. That's NPR's Debbie Elliot. We now have with us in the hurt. She is a reporter with our member station W. Abe in Atlanta, and she's outside of Ebeneezer Baptist Church where services will be held today. And Emma describe for us what it's like for you out there right now what you're seeing. Okay. Hi, Emma. This is Tanya. Can you hear me? Hi. Yeah. Can you hear me? I can I know that. It's It's quite a crowd. Okay? Can you tell us a bit about what you're seeing out there? I'm seeing I'd say about 200 people out here and we've kind of got to groups. We've got the people that are starting to gather at the Jumbotron, which has been set up right outside the church. I'm waiting to watch the service live there. And then we've got a crowd of people who are who are welcoming people as they arrive, welcoming the VIPs on presidential watch. Right now, I would say, waiting waiting for the three former presidents who are going to attend today and speak and the mood here is is really. I mean, it's it's serious, but it's also so joyful. It's about singing, and the stories that people have been telling me are just really powerful stories of how much Congressman Lewis meant to them. How much his message means to them in this time. And how much they want their Children and their grandchildren to make sure to remember him and what he stood for. What's really powerful, a swell about his home state of of his home state of Georgia and the city of Atlanta. Is that so many people felt like they knew him because they met him. You're hearing all of those stories from folks, I'm sure their interactions with him. Ebeneezer Baptist has so much history is I mentioned earlier, Martin looking Junior was a co pastor their share with us the significance of that church. Well, this was this was more Luther King Juniors from church. He grew up in it and was pastor as you said. It was also John Lewis's Home Church, where his wife's funeral was held in 2013. And it's really special. I think for these two figures overlap in this In this part of Atlanta to on Auburn Avenue, which is really the centre of Black Atlanta life, and some would argue the center of the Civil Rights movement and the two figures. I mean yesterday what was so powerful about Congressman Lewis lying in state in the Capitol in Georgia was that this was an honor denied to Dr King when he died. So I spoke to people who said I'm here because of all the people like Dr King who were denied that honor. And here we are giving Congressman Lewis most them may be the most honor. That we can right now. Sure, Let's listen to some of those folks that you spoke with you. It was amazing. It was amazing. All people on the young people. A lot of my friends has passed away. But I remember him from there. So that's why you mentioned This church being in the Hart. I just want to tell you that was Patricia Spicer, who's here, and she was talking about seeing Congressman Lewis speak at the 1963 march on Washington and that that's why his words were so powerful then and grabbed her then and she had to come today. The body of John Lewis was brought to Atlanta yesterday, and as you mentioned, it passed a number of important landmarks in the city. Walk us through. Some of those final landmarks that this journey to finally to Ebeneezer Baptist Church. There were there were quite a few stops because, as you said, Congressman Lewis has been such a presence in his district for, you know, 30 plus years. There was a pause at the Rainbow Crosswalk in Midtown, which you know, celebrates LGBT Q. The LGBTQ community here they passed by his downtown congressional office and a major street here that was renamed after him in the John Lewis Freedom Parkway on DH. It was there was also a big stop at a mural that you, Khun see driving down the interstate that runs through Atlanta. It has a picture of John Lewis and the words hero and, you know, it was really powerful. Tio. Watch him land for the last time in Atlanta and to watch him, you know, make his his final journey around the city. That's Emma hurt. She's a reporter with our member station. W. A. B in Atlanta. Thank you so much. Thank you. We're going to bring in another voice to our conversation. Remembering today the life and legacy of Congressman John Lewis Bishop Leah Daughtry is with us. Now. She's a political organizer and strategist. She ran. The Democratic National Convention is in 2008 in 2016 and she is the presiding prelate of the House of the Lord Churches. And there is perhaps no one better to talk about the intersection of faith in politics in this moment, which is what's so much of John Lewis's life really represents Bishop. Doctor. Thank you for being here. Good morning to you. And thank you very much from including this conversation. I guess I would just start by asking where your thoughts are this morning. Oh, you know, in the it's Ah, it's a powerful day. In the African American tradition. We call this the services home going And so they are mix of sorrow and sadness, but also great joy, particularly when it's someone like Mr Lewis, who has lived his life in such an exemplary way and in keeping with the principles of his faith that we know that he And our tradition. He's going home to be with the creator. And so we rejoice in bed and in the deeply held idea that we will see him again. So the mix of emotions on and I'm looking forward to the servants and being able to worship with those who have gathered To celebrate his life. The the word and his faith came before politics, did it. Not that was with what guided him first? Yes, yes, And I think that's so instructive for all of us who are people of faith. He was deeply guided by the principles of the face that he held so deeply and so closely and though that is what informed him and informed his action. Informed his decision to get involved in the civil rights movement on then to pursue a career in electoral politics. It's because of the ideals of of of our faith of our share faith that God intends for all of us. To live a full and abundant life. It holds us equally ah, in God's eyes and ah, divinely created and therefore in endowed with these Possibilities of being hole and equal. And then we have an obligation to pursue of society that sees us as God. And so for John Lewis that meant getting involved in the civil rights movement. That meant going on the bus boycotts being part of the leadership because it was he was pursuing the principal's off his face. And then in his later life, Of course, he came to Congress again, seeking ways to create a just society, a beloved community that treats all of its citizens equally. That has got had intended them to be he. It was almost a joke near the end of his life. How often he was asked to talk about preaching to chickens as a child on how readily he wanted to share that story, right? It was, he just he reveled in it of the idea of Off the joy he had as a very young man. I mean, eight years old, even sharing what he believed to be the most important important message there, Wass and and it helped him. Negotiate through through Washington. It helped him find ways to communicate with people with whom he disagreed. This's a very important part of his legacy is enough. It is it is, you know it and it tells you how deeply held his faith was. You know in these days, particularly when people are chasing followers, and ah likes and so forth on social Media network to think of this young man who who so loved his face. It was so impassioned by that any audience any Opportunity. He had to share his fate. Even with the chickens, Wass and was a chance to home his craft was a chance to get his ideas out was a chance. The tests, cadences and rhythms of words was a chance to share was the chickens and with those around the pick of the air, the grass the field how passionate he was about things that he believed and then bringing those ideals to Congress and understanding again. The people I help The idea of our faith that God has created a so equal And so if this idea that you don't have to be just like me to be just like me, there's something we have in common with each other. And if we can just talk if we can just be in conversation, we can see each other perhaps here because we may not still agree, but at least The tendency to demonize the unknown goes away lesson diminishes in the conversation. And who could refuse the conversation with Mr Lewis, who could refuse to just sit and talk and listen, and he was as good a listener. As he Waas a conversationalist. So you know, I think the Congress was richer for having him there on the Congress was Richard that his colleagues were Richard for just being able to be in conversation with someone who has deeply held ideal of deeply held conviction and experience. We should point out. Three former presidents are expected to get the memorial today. Bill Clinton. Barack Obama and and George W. Bush. I mean, just exemplifying the way that he he was very firm about what he believed and believed in his party, but he would work with Republicans if it meant Getting getting through the legislation he thought was most important. That's right. I mean, red and blue. These sorts of lines. These artificial divisions that we create among ourselves to categorize each other didn't really existed. Mr Lewis's lexicon. It was all about the humanity of people, and so has admit moving communities forward if admits Getting everybody the rights they deserve. Then he was willing to have the conversation. He was willing to be engaged and involved. And we see that in the folks that are going to speak today that are going to be present today at the tone and the tenor of the service, which he himself Designed. He spoke to his his closest staff. A. Stephen knew his time was shortening and said, who he wanted to be there. And what's the one of the elements of the club is to be what we see. Today is of Mr Lewis's own crafted bishop. Doctor, Can I ask one quick question if you were involved in the ceremony today, Realism putting you on the spot. But is there scripture that you think represents this moment, something you can point to that that carries the weight of history with it, but also Is about hope is about the future. You know, The thing that comes to mind for me is the passage and Hebrews. There's a chapter the faith chapter. We call it. Chapter 11 that talks about all the icons of our faith. Abraham and Sarah and getting and so forth on a long litany and in the middle of verse 13 says these all died in the faith, not having received the promises. But having seen them afar off, and for me that speaks of the hope. That was Mr Lewis's life. He stood on the shoulders of those who went before who didn't see freedom who didn't think the achievement of our civil rights. He followed them and he lived his life in such a way that he advanced the faith. He advance the causes, but he didn't see all of the achievement. And now we come behind him on continue his legacy. So he believed he held these convictions didn't scenes didn't see everything he fought for comes repair, But he still believed he still continue fighting. And henceforth Scripture goes on to say there was laid up for me A crown of righteousness was the Lord. That right? Justo shall give me on that day. And not to me only bought to all those who love disappearing. And so we look forward to seeing the two of us again in the future. Bishop Leah Daughtry. Thank you so much for sharing your reflections with us on this day. Thank you. Yes, very powerful. Let's go now to NPR. Congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell and NPR's senior editor and correspondent on the Washington desk. Ron Elving. Hey, guys. Kelsey. Good morning. We've heard so many powerful tributes from people throughout the country and the world. But But Louis is home state of Georgia. His presence and work had an especially profound. Meaning for his home state of Georgia for his district. Tell us a little bit more about his time there. You know, I am reminded of a couple of really, really standout moments of. I think one of the things that I think about a lot right now is the tribute that that they delivered for Johnny Isakson, who was a Republican senator. Of from Georgia, who retired last year, and in 2019 it was in November. So just just so a bit ago, Johnny Isakson was being was being honored and John Lewis Delivered this speech explaining how they could work together and and how there was an opportunity for anybody to find spaces where they agreed. And then, at the end of his speech, he walked across the Isaacson, who was in bad health and who had had trouble with his spine and said I will come to you brother and walked over and gave him a hug. That was really very much representative of the way. That John Lewis approached, you know, working on problems was what he wanted there to be bipartisanship. He wanted to be the person who came across, walked across and shake somebody's hand gave them a hug and said We can get something done here. He was also the kind of person who, whenever you saw him in the capital. There would be some person some tourist or a constituent who wanted to come and talk to him, and there was always had the time he had the time to tell his story had the time to talk to people about their story. He was extremely generous with his time and his constituents were known to come up to the capital and spent time directly with him. There was never a moment when it team like he was bigger than anybody else. Yeah, it's been Ah, so enriching and so fun over the last week to hear how so many people that I personally no have have met John Lewis, whether it's in Washington whether it's in Atlanta. New York Across the country. People have had a chance to meet him, but also have these intimate one on one conversations with him A CZ. We've learned he never turned anyone away. He was always willing to stop and have those conversations. One of the things that jumps out to me was a story about Congressman Lewis. When Hey, was in his district and he would spend a day doing a job in the district so even way back in the seventies, he would do things like drive a ups truck for a day to get a sense of what his constituents were up against. That is something that so many people feel is that he was of the people. Absolutely, and a lot of members of Congress that I speak to say they learned from that approach. They learned from John Lewis not just from the work that he did in civil rights, but the way he had a relationship with his constituents the way that he continued to speak about issues that meant something to him and then became active in them. I am reminded of the sit in on the House floor. On gun violence. He led House Democrats in a sit in and following. I believe the pulse shooting and they said that this was not a time when they could leave, and then he wanted to be the person who, you know who did the good trouble that he always talks about. He did not want to just be a person talking about it. He wanted to be a person involved in it. And you know so many members of Congress on Democrats and Republicans who felt inspired by that personal connection to his beliefs. The service eyes expected to begin shortly, and about 10 5 or 10 minutes. Ron, I'd love to go through with you what we can expect for today's service. But I want to talk first about Lewis's time as a civil rights activist, part of the movement back in the sixties. We expect to hear a lot about that today during the service, right? Yes, indeed, his life traced if you will, the trajectory of the African American experience over the last 70 80 years in American history. He was one of the group sometimes referred to as the Big Six, of course, beginning with Martin Luther King, whose name will be invoked. Many times today, but also Whitney Young of the National Urban League. Roy Wilkins of the CP. James Farmer of the Congress of regular Racial Equality and a Philip Randolph from the Pullman Porters Union. They were in many respects the Giants. Of the civil rights movement, as it took shape after World War two and rose in the fifties and sixties. Of course, John Lewis was there for most, all of it. He was part of the citizens at lunch counters in Nashville. He was one of the original 13 Freedom riders in 1961 integrating bus travel in the south. He was the youngest speaker on that day in 1963 when the march on Washington for jobs and justice featured Martin Luther King's I have a Dream speech. John Lewis spoke that day was the youngest speaker. He's the last person surviving from the speakers Dyas that day. And then, of course, the 1965 moment we have referenced Many times his beating on the Pettus Bridge. And, of course, his career in Congress, As Kelsey has described and then his links to the Black lives matter movement, which he paid tribute to In death as his cortege was coming to the capital earlier this week and paused on black lives matter Plaza in front of the White House to pay tribute to the movement and the people who are carrying forward his ideals today. Yes, And as we

Benches clear in first Astros-Dodgers game since scandal

"Last night's Houston Astros Los Angeles dodgers game got a bit heated. The teams jawed at one another and the benches cleared after Dodgers Reliever Joe Kelley through a couple of pitches that the stroz perceived as intentional being balls. This was the first meeting between the two teams. Since the Astros signed stealing scandal came to light the dodgers were the team the Astro's beat in the two thousand seventeen world series. I cannot repeat some of what was captured by microphones during last. Night's broadcast but one of the voices expressing colorful language was that of Astros Manager Dusty Baker who learned yesterday he will be back as manager next season. The Astros Tuesday picked up the option on his contract for twenty twenty one. The STROZ also picked up contract options for pitching coach, Brent Strom and third base coach Gary Pettus.

"Rob Pettus adjusted Smith those three guys all have to personal files and sat out a good portion of the first half, Al Durham and Rubio Lankford. The other starters that are back out on Florida's start the second half and Indiana will have the basketball shack dourson, rod Harper junior. Eugene. Along with Gene-o Baker and machos map as the starters for Rutgers in the second half of the ball game. I always think it's critical to get off to a good start either. I agree. I think if you're Rutgers you're encouraged right now that this deficit is only ten points. I think Indiana played well, but certainly missed some of those guys with two thousand Justin Smith, rob Tennessee, and Jon Morgan sadness, a good portion of that. I think if you're in the Anna here to get back to your ways can extend this leads can be really important Robbie will in bad for you. He finds rob medicine fantasy probably saw the least minutes in the first half of any of the starters gets the basketball. He's got it. Now. Takes it to the top of the bats pastor, Romeo Romeo. Tries to penetrate. Download gets Harper works his way into the rim and draws a foul. Romeo was really good with his back to the basket. He takes his time. He's able to go to either shoulder that time Rutgers cut him off initially. But he took his time. Understood where the defense was got right in the middle of the lane and you're homeless half the foul once he's that close to the ram accurate finishing around. He had six points of the first half four those came from the free throw line. He was four or five. He got fouled on a three.

"I because the Rams did last last year. So there's there's a lot of guys I head of cokes. I I would be shocked by anybody set brand cooks this week in a very plus matchup against against Philadelphia. Philadelphia shocks people to in these situations. How good they shockingly terrible this year. I have Josh Reynolds as my stardom. He's a guy. Anywhere between twenty five and thirty five in the rankings. Yes, he's the third receiver on the Rams. You just talked about Brandin cooks. He's an obvious started to me. But Josh vernal saw seven targets us weak and he is their third receiver. Now he takes over for Cup. He's on the field for ninety percent of the plays. He has twenty targets over the last three games. Look they're playing the eagles. There's going to be some passing touchdowns. Josh Reynolds could get one. I also think he's a guy that if you're looking for a last minute flex maybe you're insure about some players throw in Josh Reynolds. I think he'll get again seven eight maybe nine targets possible. Touchdown sixty seventy yards receiving. I think that's where his sweet spot is. But it could be higher this week. I have one more wide receiver. Go ahead, and it's Dante Pettus because a couple of weeks ago he had an amazing career game. And then the next week. It was curry game for kindle, and I think one of these two Kittle. The big game against the Seattle Seahawks. Yeah. That's why I'm putting him. He had a great game Seattle. And I think he can. And obviously they're going to gain plan for him again because they don't want the same thing happening film. And all that good stuff. I think I think pets is still going to be a threat he's turning out to be a good wide receiver to I know that early in the year, usually Rick receiver struggle to crack the lineup and he did. But he starting makes them plays with Nick Mullins of all quarterback. So his future could be brightness. I think it really shows how good of an offense a mind. Call Shanahan really is. Yeah. Absolutely. All right. Tight ends. I have a David joke. You as a tight end start this week. He's a player that is right in the middle of the rankings. But he hit Cup three balls last week and titans a position where you see a lot of fantasy owners sit tight end stardom week to week it David joke. You is going to be a player. I think that will have a big game this weekend for the Browns. Baker Mayfield loves them. I think you could see touch down for jokey. And let's be honest. We're talking about guys at tied in outside of the top four and the top four. I mean, Kelsey Erz kiddle and gronk those are basically the top for my opinion. You're looking for touchdown upside. I think the joke you has touchdown of site against Denver tomorrow. I have a guy plan on Monday night, if that's cool. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Two receivers. This is true. You take Carolina. Ben Watson Watson he's been kind of under the radar recently. But he's had some gains where he kind explodes multiple touchdowns in like red zone situations in Carolina's not the best in the red zone. It really struggling defensive in the red zone. I think watts it'll be perfect stardom. Carolina is bad against receivers and tight. Let's yes. Yeah. So you just worry that that breeze through to somebody else because I'm sure what's in will be open at times. But he was worried that somebody else. That's why I think so many people have on his bench. Don't know. But I think this this game against Carolina will be one of those games. He's gonna play. He's got game. My second tied in is a guy who's also right there on the bubble of should I shouldn't. I start him CJ Zuma from Cincinnati. He's. Raiders are bad against titans. The raiders are bad against titans against everybody. Kelsey dominate them. Just couple of weeks ago Zuma. Yeah. He's going to be a decent play this week. I think there's touchdown upside there, I think you'll see six or seven targets..

"But you mentioned that Pettus was the best pure route runner on the team. And I believe my exact reply was Marcus good would like to have a word with you, sir. So why why is it that you think that Pettus is the best pure route runner, and I guess in that I love the know what you mean by pure route runner. So I think that I would identify Pettus is the best pure route runner on this team because he doesn't have the speed advantage. That market Goodwood has I think Markey's Goodwin is gonna get, you know, it's not a lot in terms of of the separation that they're going to get or what DB's we're going gonna give them from spacing perspective. But Markey's Goodwin is gonna get an extra step or two offering the defensive back. That is particularly if it's a deep shell a defensive back. That knows that he's got a Rome with Marcus Goodwin. Deep is gonna is gonna play deeper off to start than they would with Pettus. What I really like about pets in what? About him. When he was coming out. What I liked about him in limited snaps thus far this year is that I think he has a tremendous ability to understand bend and more than anything sort of lean in leverage at the top of routes right before he makes his break. I will say that if we just lineup the blaze out concept from both of them than I'll give that one to Goodwin because very few people can break out of that concept, quite like it. And so you've already, you know, exactly ago because that's exactly the right? I was going to bring up I was going to bring the blaze out specifically because that that route for those that are that are not familiar is a route that is specific to the Shanahan tree of offenses. So you'll see McVeigh run this. You'll of course, he Shanahan run this you'll see little floor run this as well. Basically, it is an out route from within the numbers, but it looks a lot like the post, and it is a wide receiver going straight up that vertical stamina and compressing the space between him and the cornerback. And then the mmediately it's gonna look like he's gonna go to the post. But then he basically stop. And comes back outside, and it's basically a really difficult route for a wide receiver to run because it requires really really good change of direction. It requires you to be really accurate with your feet, and it's just it's overall very difficult. Julio Jones is the best example at running this route. And and I think that Marcus Goodwin has gotten very very good at running that route wasn't so much of the beginning of your one. But the touchdown that he scored a couple of weeks ago was what he was just wide open near the end zone was exactly this concept. And I do think that he is able to speed is very, very helpful. But speed is only good in terms of running when you can throttle that speed back and stay in control, Dante Pettis has a he's still a very very fast wide receiver. He ran I like a four three seven or something at one of the husky pro days, he didn't I don't think it has at the combined, but he's still very fast receiver and Dante Pettis has a very different type of separation style from Archies Goodwin. Marcus Goodwin has very quick choppy. Feet, and you can get in and out of his brakes in a different way than Pettus candor, both good. But I think right now that their respective points in their career Marcus Goodwin is a better route runner in that route rang has developed over the last two years because he wasn't that way in buffalo. If you would say markets could win two years ago. I'd be like. Yeah. Pettus maybe better runner than than monkeys Goodwin. But I think right now, Dante Pettis has the the most promise, and I think if he can get better he may be better than marketing. But right now, I absolutely think Mark is gonna win is. But not only the best wide receiver, but a better route runner than Ben Dante Pettus. I think that's fair to say that perhaps Pettus has more promise absolutely than than good. When like you mentioned Goodwin's development, particularly in the last two years, and he mentioned this in training camp last year that he really began to sort of take pride in not just being that that speed guy.

"When you think about it, the Voting Rights Act itself emerged out of decades violence, but particularly that violent scene, I on the Edmund Pettus bridge where nonviolent protesters led by Jose a Williams and John Lewis are crossing the Edmund Pettus bridge as part of a symbolic carrying of Jimmy Lee Jackson's casket, because he was gunned down by Alabama cops for defending his mother against a beating during a voting rights protests.

"For millennials to vote who is that all the people that mostly vote for progressives and that's not by accident so since 2013 there have been a number of states that have put in restrictions voter suppressive measures that would cut down early voting days make it harder to vote absentee and if quote of course put something forward known as voter id in all of these things make it difficult for us to exercise our right to vote when you think about john lewis marching across the edmund pettus bridge in a nearly dying for that opportunity for them to turn around and make it harder for us the vote after we elected our first black president twice right that's a slap in the face is a slap in the face and why many of those efforts were called a modernday poll tax so one of the examples from that is like an alabama for example which i just talked about briefly with edmund pettus bridge they closed down thirty one dmv used in most of those dm vis were located in four black communities and that was in 2015 and we've seen these things get progressively worse i certainly did not anticipate having a foreign government getting involved in elections and of course that making it even harder with russia and we still don't know the impact of that but we do know that they were able to interfere with more than twenty free thinks in different states in 2016 so that means that are activism now has to be global for many of us we may have had parents are some of you in this room may have been directly involved with antiapartheid movement but we never had the fight to protect the vote from a foreign government in our national elections that's a new form of activism that's required.
