Hollywood's Black List
"Every year, fifty thousand movie scripts Tele plays other pieces of writer Lee stuff get registered with the Writers Guild of America fifty thousand most of which sucks, but a handful of which will become the movies that change our lives today on the show how a math! Loving movie nerd used a spreadsheet and an anonymous hotmail address to solve one of Hollywood's most fundamental problems, picking winners from a sea of garbage, and he may just have reinvented the power structure of Hollywood along the way.

A. dot com slash NPR. We're only months away from election day and every week or even every few hours. There's a new twist that could affect who will win the White House to keep up with the latest tune into the NPR. Politics podcast every to find out what happened and what it means for the election. It's two thousand and five Franklin Leonard a junior executive at Leonardo. DiCaprio's production company which sounds glamorous, but arguably he is a glorified script reader. WHO's boss's boss? Is Leonardo DiCaprio. Franklin's job is to help that boss. Find The next great movie for Leo, which means he is constantly reading movie scripts. Every junior executive lives in constant fear of the trade story that breaks about some exciting new script that they didn't know about that. Their bosses like. Like why didn't you know about this? Franklin is supposed to know about everything which is tough because there's this famous old saying in Hollywood. Nobody knows anything as in. It's really hard to know what movies are going to work. So if you do find something any piece of information that can help you gauge. What might work that information? Franklin is learning. That is Hollywood gold one of the things that drilled into your head. Is that information? Information is the most valuable thing. Yeah, and that information is to be protected and kept in house and exploitation of that information is how we in power and leverage like what little information you can manage, and then if it's kind of good, put up a wall as quickly as possible. That's exactly right. Movie scripts are a kind of information like the fundamental piece of information for a movie, and so Franklin's job is go out into the world. World and find undiscovered scripts before anybody else finding those scripts, though amongst the thousands and thousands being written every year it's a bit like walking into like the largest bookstore in the world, and every book has the exact same color. There's no cover art. There's no like publishers weekly. There's no reviews available to you, but your job is to walk into that sort of hyper anonymous bookstore and come out with the best books available That seems impossible. And Franklin says you can see how a problem emerges quickly in Hollywood people deal with this overwhelming amount of information by assuming they should reach for the same shelves of that anonymous bookstores they always do. They assume they should make the same kinds of movies written by the same kinds of people starring the same kinds of people. Yes, we are generally talking about white men people you soon because this has been the case for you thus far that are white writer who went to Dartmouth is better than a black writer who went to? To Clark Atlanta or Spelman, the conventional wisdom that you assume as wisdom is more often than not convention, and that is especially true in Hollywood where the convention has been created by people who are in no way, shape or form representative of the audience and consumer that they are trying to sell to Franklin. decided it was going to be part of his job. Try and find scripts outside of the conventions, well of course, also keeping an eye open for the next conventional blockbuster, which yeah was gonNA mean lots more reading the normal. Look. I've always been bit of a grind. My Competitive Advantage was my capacity to work, and so every weekend I would take home a banker's box full of scripts, but literally twenty five thirty screenplays, and try to read them all every Saturday afternoon. There is Franklin sitting on his couch. It is black sweatpants flipping through page after page after page hoping he's about to read a life changing story imagine if Christmas was every Saturday, but every Saturday. You ran downstairs and opened the box that you're most excited about, and it was socks. Because there is the possibility of getting everything that you ever wanted yeah. But there is the probability that it's. Socks most Saturdays and Sundays go like this Franklin tears into his Christmas scripts seven hours later. Frankland sitting in a pile of socks and the worst thing is when he goes into the office on Monday. His boss says you read anything good. And Franklin has to say no. It was as if he didn't do any work that weekend. Because most scripts are so bad, the Franklin would be in trouble for recommending them, and even if he is lucky enough to find a scripted, he loves he's really got to think about whether. Whether it is the right kind of thing for Leo's company like there was a script going around that year about a guy dealing with his interpersonal trauma by buying and dating a sex doll. It's easy to imagine reading that in saying Oh this is a really well observed human story, but imagine going into your boss's office and saying you should read this and when they ask you what it's about saying. This is what it's about Leonardo DiCaprio. I think you should play this role where you date of a doll like that's. That's a tough sell for the most confident among us. Franklin's breaking point came late one night. Do you remember his? He was in the office. It was dark outside, and he was supposed to go on vacation, and he just kept thinking about how he was inevitably going to end up drowning in bad scripts on vacation, and all of that work would generate nothing of actual value for his job and I remember, looking up and thinking. I. Don't know that this is sustainable and I need to come up with a solution. How is there not a better system for finding good screenplays? If you do the Friends of friends method, you end up with the Friends of friends scripts, and if you try this brute force thing, you're going to ruin your weekends, Andrew Vacation, plus you would need fifty more Franklin's to see all of the script anyway. And that's when it dawns on Franklin. There are more than fifty Franklin's in Hollywood got on. My desktop fired up my calendar and went through and looked at every single person who had a job similar to mine. Who I had had breakfast lunch, dinner or drinks with. If you had eavesdropped on those breakfasts and drinks, Franklin says you would have heard the junior executives ask each other this same question. Have you read anything good lately? Yes, these junior. Our competitors and yes, information is power and companies would probably not be jazzed about them sharing that information, but you know these are low level producers. They're doing each other favors, and it's all off the record anyway. Who is going to know about this and so Franklin figures? Let's see if anyone's read anything good lately. He opens up an email and he BBC's about seventy. Five of his fellow junior exacts, and so know hey. Similar of your ten favorite scripts in exchange I will send you the combined. Responses back. Did you say who you were like? I am a I am a mysterious junior executive. Say anything else, I do not believe that I did. I created an anonymous hotmail address. I believe it was blacklist. Two thousand five at Hotmail DOT com, he called it the blacklist partly to honor the blacklisted writers during the McCarthy era, and partly because he always hated the idea that the word black gets used to mean bad, so this blacklist was going to mean great screenplays. People would respond, but surprisingly responses started coming back. Maybe these other junior executives felt as stuck as Franklin. Maybe it was just this information bargain was was a good deal. I sure transcripts I get a whole list back there around ninety responses and every time somebody mentioned the same script Franklin treated that like a vote for that script, and he starts logging all of this into spreadsheet. Twenty five people voted for things. We lost in the fire by Allan Loeb Twenty. Four people mentioned Juno by cody. Fifteen votes Larson the real girl by Nancy Oliver Fourteen votes, Lars and the real girl that is the script about the guy and the sex. If, you were a junior executive. Thinking this is good, but is this good? I'm not important enough to risk bringing this to my boss. The blacklist was a way of saying you were right. It was good and here is a number. Instead of just your instincts fourteen votes, only living boy in New, York, by Allan, Loeb Charlie Wilson's war by earned Sorkin, Fan Burke and by the way a big deal in two thousand five. This wasn't just about finding undiscovered writers. It was any script that was great and not made. In a script called peacock by riders named Michael Lender and Ryan Roy the top ten of the very first blacklist thubten of the very first blacklist. Point the blacklist was just a spreadsheet that only Franklin could see, and he's about to send it back to all those other junior executives who contributed and he looks at it for a moment all of this normally off the record insider Hollywood Intel now written in a single place. He takes a deep breath. And he hit send. And then he packs up and heads off for vacation in Mexico and about a weekend vacation I went to the hotel of business center to check my email on like the public computer. And this lists have been forwarded back to me several dozen times. and everyone's like Oh my word of this team. Come from a lot of descriptions of sister. Good. Where where did this come from? What's your? What's your thought? It was terrifying. My thought is is that my career in Hollywood has a clock on it and the doomsday clock has just sped up. This anonymous list of the best unmade screenplays was blowing up. It had gone way beyond the small circle. It was initially sent to it even ended up covered the industry press, and so Franklin kept his down. He stayed anonymous and one day. He gets this call from an agent. Saying that his client has written this amazing script. It's perfect for Leo. It's like the usual call, except then the agent says hey. Don't tell anybody, but I have it on good authority that this ripped is going to be the number one script on next year's blacklist. I immediately thought to myself. That's interesting because I made the blacklist and I'm not making another one because I. DON'T WANNA get run out of town on rails. But I'm fascinated that you think that the speculative notion of your client scripting on the list is a sales tool for you. That must mean that this list that I created has

I'm coming from a black magazine representing the magazine industry so I was so pleased with that. Your current position as editor in chief of the National Newspaper Published Association. Give us a brief history of that organization and your responsibilities with black presses. About one hundred seventy six years old gotten around fighting against niches slavery and everything else. I have been here. Two years. Essentially is a federation of more than two hundred African American newspapers Most of them weekly and essentially what I do is provide news out of Washington and and National News as well For a member newspapers. And so we've pretty much such service. Washington bureau founders for audience. That aren't really familiar. That are not African Americans. Why has the black press particularly organization the two hundred or so Weeklies still viable in this country today. Well I wish having spent thirty three years journalism most of not into black press. I wish that the media was doing this job. And there'd be no need for the Black Press a Hispanic Women magazine but it but it is not doing. It does a terrible job and still a worse job. I think when I came to business thirty three years ago. So if you're going to get in order to be well informed you have to read from a variety of sources in the first place you know you just can't read just to Austin space when you just read just you know Dallas Weekly. Just can't you gotta read from different sources and so So would ask an American perspective gives you a different look at some of the same national issues and then he's going to be really inform. You need to reap the black newspapers and go out website. black press. Usa DOT COM
Biggest Winners and Losers from 2020 NBA Trade Deadline
"We we knew about the I drink a dollar to the heat move last night during the show a couple other notable NBA trades at the deadline which was three PM on Thursday the Angelo Russell ends up being moved when you go to the T. wolves enter wegen so we talked about last night goes to the warriors a bunch of other players involved in that trade as well among them Amari Spelman the little product who is actually a pretty good year in Golden State lost some weight but he ends up with the T. wolves Marcus Morris goes to the clippers went with a bunch of other guys involved in that one that's a good move for the clippers Andre Drummond what are the cavs doing exactly someone explain to me what the cavs are doing but that was a mystery our and and yes we do we do Robert Covington was was headed to the rockets that's another one what what are the cavs doing like he's exactly that is a great question and they keep Kevin love who yeah just yeah just absolute killing the the cat the the cap any semblance of chemistry they could have their weird some weird stuff I I mean B. line was a we're hiring to begin with yeah whatever and then the true complete just given away drumming for free because they were so terrified he would accept the player option that they gave him right right yeah and they don't move canard or anybody else yeah like what what what anyway was for an employer from Derrick rose of like the got developing at a T. rex tanking you're not nothing if you just get rid of them for cap purposes get rid of yeah I don't know very strange odds and ends but they get a dollar helps the heat they weren't able to pull off the Gallinari trade which would help them offensively but you know markets Mars will be a a good addition to the clippers if you just stay somewhat sane they should be okay with him but he could do a lot of different things we know we can stretch it out a little but you could do a lot of different things to help you for sure so there was there were some of the some of the bigger moves the Sixers moves were of the minor variety which you kind of figured surprising though re some of the accounts that you know they really weren't even having conversations regarding or for Harris that that just tells you a some of that is you know pride stubbornness we made these moves we invested a lot of money in these guys resources in these guys we're gonna roll with them you know it cetera and they also don't want to have yet another season with a major blockbuster deal like that had the last couple of seasons cell you're kind of a two fold thing there but the bottom line is if you're gonna continue with the slide out you need to change it up Brett brown slash Elton brand slash whoever's making the call on that you can't continue this definition of insanity hoping it's going to change because it's not gonna change and less you change it unless you do something be proactive to
Warriors deal Russell to Wolves, get back Wiggins
"For people that missed it. The warriors and Timber Wolves agreed on trade us in the Ngelo Russell Jacob Evans in Amari spelman to Minnesota for Andrew Wiggins a a top three protected twenty twenty one first round pick and a twenty twenty two second round pick. I like to steal from Minnesota. I think Karl Anthony towns and de Ngelo. They're obviously good friends. And that's big because towns it's been very frustrated recently but again let's get back to what the warriors got back in return. I'm not a big Fan. I'm not a fan of that that contract but I guess when you're the warriors they're already a situation where a lot of their guys are locked up so I understand that for them. It doesn't matter as much for another team they just Trying to add a guy that can help them on both ends of the floor and the contract isn't as big of a deal for them. But I just think with twenty-three-year-old all-star which is what Russell was he. He was an all star last year. I just don't think that's enough to get back in return. I do like that. They got the draft pick again. Talk Re protected. Twenty twenty. One should be a much better draft twenty twenty based on what the experts are all saying so in top. You're protected. I mean this Minnesota team made it could finish between four and ten could end up being lottery picked so I do think that is very valuable. That's my favorite part of the acquisition here for the warriors I just feel like with wiggins. He's been so disappointing. Maybe maybe they feel like they can help him reach us well potential. We know they've done a very good job of developing guys. They have great leader as a strong culture which may really help someone like wiggins. This could be totally wrong around here. I will admit that maybe wiggins goes there and this is exactly what he needed to reach us and become a better player in guys like Steph and clay and dream on push push him. I just feel like how did they wait until the offseason because they couldn't afford to be patient here. There really wasn't a sense of urgency. I would like to see if there were different offers or different teams that kind of came to the table. I just don't think this is the kind of package that you pounce on when you have a great trade ship and again twenty-three-year-old all-star and no roe pressure to make a move now so but I it is newsday what you're saying. Though had Russell and curry not work together you think that Russell's trade value could have diminished. So I see what you're saying. I'm just not a big Fan. I think that's my problem here. Yeah and I think for Minnesota standpoint It's a very interesting gamble. Because of course they want him as a free agent right and it's always nice to be able to sign a young player like that. If you get the right opportunity comes along but they miss out. It's so let's remember that to make this deal happen. They basically had to ship out Jeff Teague for basically nothing it trade Covington to get some assets assets kinda like sweet things up and they have to wind up trading wiggins out. It's actually make this deal happen with golden state so I don't WANNA say Minnesota gutted their assets but they actually you. You know invest in quite a bit to get Russell. Now the upside to doing that is you're gonNA have a very exciting offensive oriented team where you've got your best players are both all three point shooters with Karl Anthony towns and Diangelo Russel and they should fit together. Great in pick and roll it could pop situations right so for a fan base. That's been through a lot here. Typical era the Jimmy Butler you know You know being upset a few years ago in the long losing streak this year. I think there are some genuine hope and optimism with that pairing between those two guys. But I think my concern is that they really have stripped out a lot of their other proven talent around them and I think that both those guys are just minus defenders and that part it makes me nervous right. Because you know if you're trying to picture these guys is like this inside outside duo right well you want at least one of them to be a plus defender. And I don't think that's it's ever GonNa Happen for either one of those guys and so now it creates some roster challenges where you have to go out and target some other perimeter defenders guys who can help cover up for Russell in towns so that you can at at least be you know average on the defensive end. If you WANNA be a winning team so I guess long story short I think they invested an awful lot of assets. Just make this Russell thing happened and I'm not totally extolled.

How Women of Color Are Shaping Our Democracy
"So I always like to start with everyone introduce do some cells but of course I also had to ask everyone a question along with that. So can you tell everyone your name where you work which you do and what has has been one of your favorite moments from this election cycle so far. I know there's so many to choose from because even though it's only January sorry this thing has been long. But what's one of the things that has been in the forefront of your mind. Hi everyone thanks so much for having me on the show My name is unleashes saying I am the Director of Judiciary Democracy Affairs at planned. Parenthood Action Fund. My main role is to make sure that we are linking and connecting the dots on why reproductive healthcare is so important and why the courts and democracy reform or so crucial for protecting our rights when it comes to reproductive health. Care one of the things I mean. There's so many things that have been I feel like monumental in this cycle but one of them is the fact that there are and have been so many women who were running for presidency and what that really means for communities of color what that means for communities across the board what that means for young people who are looking and seeing people represented on the screen when watching these debates when watching the campaign trail and seeing that reflection and then what that has meant for the conversation as well right. We've seen all the Democratic candidates. Come out in favour and support of reproductive rights in repealing the Hyde amendment all of which I truly truly believe we can pay tribute to the fact that there are so many diverse voices that are pushing each other to be bolder and vocally boulder in their policies. Hey you too often. I'm Richard from Los Angeles. California live here in the area. I'm the national director for the college. Division at the National Association for the events and of color people for now referred to as P and I have to so one of the last night when Elizabeth Warren said or she made the awareness known that all the women have not lost an election but all over to elections. I thought that was pretty. Shed asked I was like I think she's had a lot of iconic moments. Yeah I love the very visible presence and leadership of black woman the campaigns I love the chief of staff from Leon Castro's Camp I love watching Black Women for Warren and love watching black woman for Bernie. I mean this this notion that like there needs to be a special emphasis that is very public and other public for black women. So it doesn't matter you've ever moments in this campaign so far yes I do not like how many debates we're having and how late they are and how they they they are late imile. I'm emily career and I am the one of the national national campaigns directors at the League of Conservation Voters Lcd. We elect environmental champions At all levels of government and hold them accountable in two thousand. Eighteen were One of the top outside spenders in electoral politics spinning over eighty million dollars to help get environmental champions elected on the ballot I actually actually have to favorite moments I would say. The first is the fact that there is an Asian American presidential candidate. That's on the stage. Yes he's a man. It's it's the Asian American that's huge for is for the community. I would say the second. One is similar in terms of a diversity of of staff on these campaigns and the height. How hyped highlighted They are. It's very tough to be a minority as a political and to have that standard and to have that bar and feel like Minorities have an opportunity to work in this business. is huge It's really changing. The face of how campaigns are being put together and who's clean the lovers our next question talking talking about women of Color voters. We know that will be crucial to this election cycle. You can't win without us. That's just how it is and we are one at every four voters in Florida Texas Arizona and Georgia. How have you already seen women of color shape? This election cycle particularly the work that you do. I think this is like like such a crucial moment. And we've really seen this wave of engagement and energy and progress being made when you look at the Reproductive Justice Movement and special shout Out to groups like all above all and others that have really paved the way for reproductive health care and reproductive freedom reproductive justice issues and legislative policies. I mean they are responsible for the fact that we're seeing all these Democratic candidates saying that. They're they want to repeal the Hyde amendment though the push of the conversation and the narrative of in that direction has been particularly helpful with because of the leadership coming from reproductive justice organizations. And I would say I'm just to piggyback on that much planned. Parenthood you know we have seen affiliates as well and we were huge in the Virginia Sweep in November and Virginia affiliate Elliot endorsed sixty two candidates. That were pro-climate. Three of them were women. More than a dozen were women of color so you have folks like delegate Hashmi who who and also folks like Jinro Tucson who won their races Who ran on climate? Who ran on on on environmental issues? Who wants and to really advanced certain issues like climate change in everyday you know I guess highlight it at a level that necessarily may not be through the Lens of of a minority female now and especially in communities where they are Less not less equal. But we're the disadvantaged and have someone that can speak up in the fight everyday. I been away what I'm thinking about what you want said. There's been a wave of. I work with young people. Anybody twenty-five twenty-five younger that's my audience with young black people across the nation. We have over three hundred and thirty nine chapters across the country. I gained thirty two chapters last year alone. We work at twenty three thousand young people across the country and when we see Abrahams running last year and we went to polling places at Spelman and Morehouse in Atlanta in in Georgia Really got there are students got there and stood in line and realize that there were no outlets are there were no plugs of there. Were No Wires for the voting machines and it was young black women at those schools at Spelman who said to the end of the Lacey. Pe- we need to file a lawsuit because this is not how democracy should be working.

"Colleges with a transgender policy. Joining us now on the KCBS ring central Newsline to talk more about it as Leslie hall, director of the historically black colleges and universities program with the human rights campaign. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us. Let's begin with the culture at historically black colleges. Tell us a little bit generally speaking, and specifically as it pertains to sexual identity and orientational what the culture is like at Morehouse in slightly broader picture. Sure. Thank you for having me while away. So, you know, HCC us. Just traditionally has had a very conservative kind of campus community. Many of the species were founded in a Baptist black Baptist church tradition in many of those traditions and other religious traditions. And so many of those traditions are very very conservative around sex around sexuality around anything outside of the gender binary with male or female. So, you know, there was the sexual orientation revolution, you know, in the early parts in the two thousands when students were becoming more unapologetic about this sexual orientation identity being more vocal and more out front about who they decided to love. And so that kind of buck the system so to speak in many of the campuses. And so now we are beginning to face. We're beginning to have to say saying and confront the. The the issue of gender, and what that looks like specially on campuses that are same gender colleges like Spelman college Morehouse. So, you know, traditionally colleges HPC's, I just really conservative environments with which is just a small piece of a larger microcosm of the black community. So I think it's probably safe to say that we're seeing somewhat of a sea change regarding transgender identity. It's that changes happening faster in some parts of the country slower and others. But how does this how to historically black colleges fit in with that sea change? And specifically how does this change in policy at Morehouse fit in certainly so, yeah, you're right. You know, folks, I think I think what's happening is transgender people are being more public morale front about their identity and why and why we should, you know, pay attention. We have more transgender actors and actresses that are out on that out front about about who they are. And they're. Transition. We just definition discussing this change into military band, where we're military transgender on forces members are a wanting to serve their country and can't so we're we're beginning to grapple with a subset about population, which we have traditionally ignored. And so as relates to the Morehouse college expansion their admission policy, this is huge Morehouse Morehouse college, especially was born out of the Baptist church tradition. You know, many people know Morehouse because of the notables have attended like Dr Martin Luther King and his father and other notable black pastors and religious leaders and civil rights leaders. And so or more house to come out and make a declaration to reaffirm their commitment to educating men, regardless of their. Sex assigned. Does is incredible. And that will and and by Morehouse making this making this move. They will then push other colleges and organizations to then have to fully face the idea that we we must brought in the tent for all people, no matter, the gender identity or sexual orientation. All right. Well, we thank you so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us. That is Leslie hall director of the historically black colleges and universities program with the human rights campaign..

But I do want to go back to my hometown of Philadelphia essentially started school as well. So. But has. Hello, everybody. My name is NIA Malone. I am a junior political science in secondary education major at Spelman college. I currently serve as the student. Trustees sitting on the board of trustees for Spelman after graduation, which is two years from now I plan to teach for a little bit with the hopes of going to law school and working within educational policy. Hello, good evening. My name is precious. Douglas, AMA sophomore at Georgia State University. And my major is fine arts, and I work with the intersection of politics, activism and the arts. All right. All right. Okay. Okay. And of course, you know, we got we have one more guest, which I just cannot wait for her to be a part of this conversation. And she's going to introduce f once she wants you got. Well, let me just you all heard what what what's really kind of kind of pushing me this this week. You know, the Tuesday event is a huge event and your Spelman sister. Stacey Abrams is running for for for governor. And I. I think that she has definitely raised some eyebrows. And also Andrew gilmore's down in Florida. You know, has raised some eyebrows. And I'm excited about what they're doing. And you know, as as you as you all know in those who listen to me know that I'm a graduate of North Carolina agricultural and technical state university. And there there is you know, we have a very interesting legacy. There of political engagement starting with the Greensboro four, you know, we will very big with the city. And in fact, in fact, you know. You know, I I kind of get a little little teary eyed when I think about Woolworth's and think about what happened there in Greensburg. I mean, if you go up there now, you can actually visit you can see some of the some of the the way things are actually structured then. So I am very much. So a part of this this move in this consciousness of this this this mindset of of political engagement of voting, and and these things, but what's interesting is the root dot com. Published a piece and said that less than twenty percent. Twenty percent of of persons eighteen to twenty nine I actually have actually turn turn out to vote. And that was that figure was very very disturbing to me. And so I want to know what you all fake first of all about the whole question about voting itself. And and whether or not even even the piece that YouTube is talking about doing with the live streaming the kind of Vodafone if that's the word to use to get to get a demographic in because if you're going to use social media, clearly says something about who you're trying to you're trying to read what do y'all think about it? I mean, you think what do you think of some idea about the number of voters your age, and then even whether or not this strategy that YouTube is using whether or not you think it's going to work, which which think. I know that let's talk of the so-called millennial not stepping up in a potentially coming out in the numbers. I was a firm believer in potentially not voting up until two thousand sixteen. Where I was a good about two months removed from being eligible to vote and seeing the turmoil that happened during November of that year. I know that me as well as a lot of my counterparts in the generation are have been waiting for the next November had been waiting for opportunity for our voices to truly be hurt. So I don't know if I necessarily agree that I agree that this year will be a major turning point in how this country views. The demographic of the millennials and of young voters because even people in high school this year, we're making movements against this administration as well as polka movements in this country to let their voice be heard. So it's hard for me to believe that. Tuesday. Oh, come in everybody'll. Just stay on the phone and not go outside. You know, forget about all the things that were said about us in. Just about the things that we really care about. I want to specifically talk about not just millennials across the nation. But right here in Georgia. Particularly in the Atlanta university center, I think that you have an energized group of people who now have a reason to vote so you spoke of someone as a as an alumna of the area at Spelman college. Stacey Abrams graduating from Spelman college energizes, not just the people in the AFC. But I think she gives little black boys and little black girls. Hope in a reason to want to go out to vote. I don't think that we saw this in two thousand sixteen. As much as we saw it when you talk about Obama, right? Obama energizing this. The people that was because black folks are reason to go out to the polls. And I think you'll see the same thing here in the state of Georgia black people. Finally, you're talking about the first black woman to secure the candidacy for major political party in the United States. So this is the first time this has happened. So you have a group of a group of people were injured is around the thought process of having an opportunity to actually cast their ballot for someone that looks like them. All. Wow. And I tell you what thank you so much. Hey, we got we got a lot to talk about you argue that music, right? That means it's about time to go to a heart rate. You know, what I have a wonderful group in the studio with me today. And I'm telling you to have has not been told when we come back on the other side of this break, we're going to talk about this voting piece. We're gonna talk about getting out to vote. We're going to talk about weather millennials think that there are that voting will work, you know, whether or not the volt whoa can can make some things happen. My term in my word is do you?

"So these trends change over time, but it's nevertheless true that we tend to form impressions and. Bias in situations not based completely out of FinnAir, although some stereotypes totally out of thin air others are just rooted in observations, right? So there have been instances where prominent black leaders have admitted to having a fear, right? If you're walking in a certain neighborhood at a certain time, Jesse Jackson as that famous Jesse Jackson quote, which was right among them. The more honest things Jesse Jackson has ever said. Yeah. And there's also virtually the same quote by a former president of Spelman university Spelman college, whose name I'm blanking on who said I really the same thing. Do you remember the quote? No, I don't remember off the top of my head, but the thrust of it was that essentially, I sometimes fear black men. I don't have it for beta, but just if it was this is Jesse Jackson quote. He said the all tell you what I'm sick of. I'm sick of walking down the street at. Night, hearing footsteps behind me, feeling the fear, feeling the hair stand up on the back of my neck and turn it around and seeing that it's a white guy and feeling relief. That's basically the quote, and I'm sure he got a fair amount of pain for having said that. But the reality of maybe just touch on the reality of crime in the black community so that we don't sound delusional here. But the statistics on black on black violence which is almost the totality of the crime problem there in large measure, it's the totality of the crime problem in many urban areas that have high crime problems. I can pull up those specifically, but you have some stance off the top of your head. Yeah, I have the FBI crime data here. Just a national data. I think the latest year for which it's available fifty, two percent of homicides were committed by blacks and that number is been. Relatively stable over the past two decades. It's hovered right around half basically every year and you could just state it in reverse to fifty percent of the homicide victims are also black. So it's a problem perpetrated primarily by black people in specifically black men and specifically young black men and also suffered disproportionately by young black men. For instance, there's a data from the CDC that shows that if you look at black men ages fifteen to thirty four, the number one cause of death is homicide, and even that slightly understates it because you might say, I'm sure the majority of that is in the younger half of that age distribution. But it's actually the case that if you disaggregated, if you just go from fifteen nineteen number one cause a death is homicide. You know twenty twenty four still the number one cause twenty five to thirty four. Still the number one cause and. That's a fact that can't be said about any other combination of age and ethnicity. And I think the important thing to keep in mind here is that among the things that governments do well, lowering crime rates actually happens to be one of them. So there's every reason to believe that this could come down given the right policies, so it's not just gratuitous to talk about it. Like I said, the rate of crime commission among the Irish used to be five times higher than the Germans in the early twentieth century. Likewise, with the Italians, maybe three times higher and so we not. We know certain ethnic groups have committed lots of crime in the past, and we know that those crime rates can be brought down with effective policing with more policing with better policing. And obviously the whole challenge is how do we get there, but it's gonna be very hard. To get there if we can't even mention the statistics that describe the problem. Yeah, and they're actually a little arithmetic, makes them look a little bit worse specifically for young black man because African Americans make up about fourteen percent of the population..
