Hollywood Won’t Quit the Golden Globes, Despite No Black Members and a Corruption Scandal
"Maybe this'd year's awards ceremony is wrapped in controversy because of the composition of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is the group that gives out the Golden Globe Award. Unlike the Academy Awards, which are given out by the academy that's about 6000 people. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is about 90 people, and they're all reporters. There, guys like me, men and men and women like me reporters that cover entertainment and they're the ones that give, you know, decide and give up The Golden Globe awards, but The controversy is here that it was learned that not a single member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association astonishingly is a person of color. And you know that may account for why movies like the Five Bloods the, uh, movie about my rainy my Rainey's black bottom. The movie about cash is playing Sam Cooke and This meeting of this four legendary black leaders of the sixties. Why why all these movies that are black oriented movies were not even nominated. When? In fact, they're some of the best movies of the year, you know, So there is a lot of controversy about this Golden Globes being exclusively white. S so you know, we'll see how that's gonna play out if if it does at all tonight. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are

"Great Sam Cooke. Change is going to come indeed. You know, he recorded that song just before his death, and Bobby Womack and Lou Rawls heard it. Before it was released. They were with Sam Cooke shortly before he was murdered. And they said they had an eerie feeling about that song that an eerie feeling it was released just after his passing, and it is As pertinent today as it is nearly 60 years later, Welcome back to keep up alive with Reverend Jesse Jackson. I am Santy to Jackson.

So please go to rainbow push out of work and call us at 773 Freedom throughout the week and um and we are also collecting pampers and food and we have been giving away Tens of thousands of meals and things that people have needed to just get through this crisis and the Biden Biden Harris administration. Their response has been to respond to these issues directly. On. Do you know we've got to talk about that There was a stimulus package that was gotten through just before President Trump left, and it was going to boost the fortunes of HBC used by more than $1 billion for with infrastructure breaks. That's a good thing, but we've got a lot more work to do. Reverend Jackson and you and David Daley collaborated on a piece that's going to be out in USA Today. This week. David Daley, Why did you speak to that? Good morning, everybody. Um just you know what we wanted to do was make the case for why the reforms in before the People act are so important and How meaningful they would be in solving real world problems and the problems that we're about to be seeing over the next couple of years because As all of the things we're talking about are unfolding in Washington, where Democrats hold a big try Specter what we're already seeing out of state legislatures around the country in Georgia, Texas and Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and In Michigan and in Arizona. Our efforts once again to make it harder for people to vote to add additional barriers to put Hands on drop boxes to require voter idea if you're voting by mail to roll back a lot of the new vote by mail provisions that were instituted in 2020, because Of the pandemic, even in Georgia, where the secretary of state who's whose record on voting rights is Nick's but who was hailed for standing up to the president of the United States when he tried to Force and to find 11,000 more votes someplace, right? Uh, the Republicans and Georgia's Legislature. Someone happy about this that they're talking about. Trying to eliminate the secretary of state as an elected position and make it appointed by the Republican Jerry Mander of majority. In the state Legislature. So we have got to move on federal national standards on the right to vote so that your right to vote in Florida and Texas and Georgia and Mississippi Isn't less than it is elsewhere around the country. Some of the terrific things you see in HR one. A required two weeks of early voting. In every state. A requirement that They're being equal equitable number. Was polling places and voting machines available in every neighborhood. You would have automatic voter registration, Same day voter registration, online voter registration and immediate end to felony disenfranchisement of blood on this country, which again dates back to the Jim Crow days. And end to the voter purge is that we have seen in so many states that disproportionately affect voters of color and also a requirement that independent commissions are used. To redraw congressional district around the country, which right now Republicans have a big advantage on this, and they have Jerry Mander those lines. To their advantage in such a way that if the Democrats don't act right now, It is entirely entirely possible that redistricting alone hands Republicans back the U. S House. In 2022. Uh, we're from Jackson. There's a lot that people it seems like we have to do a whole lot of things all at once. Reference, Uh, do you think we should be talking about that All of that, Even I mean, uh, we should be having that conversation as well. I mean, Raphael Warnock seat is up in 2022. He's running for reelection about Frank's number, 11,000, both George and the other boats. Do it again. Mom attack, right, Reverend, I think And you want him to do that? Because you know as we look We continue to let you in, You know A and it turns out that Joe Biden's when was narrower than Hillary Clinton's right. Please explain. Well, we have an electoral college vote if you win the most votes in the state, then uh, the combined total of your state You're U. S representatives and your two senators equals the electoral college votes. And so those votes are then. Certified by the state legislature by the signed by the governor passed on to the Congress, which is what was happening on January 6th. The Congress was certifying. What the state had certified in terms of the electoral college votes. So if you take the difference in the votes for Biden and Trump in three states, Georgia, Wisconsin and Arizona, which was roughly and leave 12,000 and Georgia. I think 20,000 and Wisconsin and 11,000 and Arizona If you somehow switched. Those are ad 40 You know, 1000 votes in each of those for trump more than what Biden has. We wind up with a 2 69 vote tie in terms of the Electoral college. Because Maine and Nebraska award their electoral college votes on the basis of whoever wins the district congressional district. On and Trump won in Maine, but he lost in the second district in Nebraska. So Hey, one by 22,000 votes so that like Combination of those Three states, plus a second district in Nebraska. Total 65,000 votes, and that's actually how many votes put Biden over not the seven million votes plus that we talked about, just like it was 77,000 votes that put Biden over in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin in 2016, not the 2.86 million popular votes that Hillary lost by In 2016. Let me through to other numbers out there really quick if I could, um Because Frank's analysis is his absolutely right on. Um it's not on Lee that a seven million margin Victory in the national Popular vote can be erased that easily by the structure of the electoral college. But Democrats have a 50 50 tie in the U. S. Senate with Republicans, except those Democrats represent 41 million more people than the 50. Republicans. 41 million more people, um and you know, say that one more time. Say that 15 Democratic U. S. Senators represent 41 million more people. On the 50 Republican U. S senators. So there is a huge structural imbalance in the U. S senate..

Martinez spot Eve off, often written in regard to other poets, and what happens to them, especially during hard times, which is quite common for Starving poets. Periods, of course, during periods of reaction. There's there's references throughout this collection of great poets that have been murdered by fascists. Lorik A, for instance. Um United earlier conversation. You You talked about poets as disposable people tell us about Jack Jack Guidos. In the poem Flood. Yes. Um, Jack I were off was, uh My second father. You've heard lots of poems about frankness. Bother my actual father. But check out what else was right behind Jack OG widows was born in 1934 in 2014. He was a Puerto Rican poet. Fiction writer, essayist, playwright, translator, community organizer and also the director of animal Say, Look bottom you in East Harlem, Uh he died of complications from Alzheimer's. Uh, hey.

Because that's where poets going to die if they go anywhere at all. What's even worse is when poets work dies before the poet Was even worse in my estimation is when the poet As a result of a disease like Alzheimer's, like dementia. No longer remembers. In this case that he was ever a poet it all He doesn't even understand. With that rectangle called a book happens to bay. And so this is a poem about A dear friend and poet.

Nineteen testing until two days after the rockets held her first team practices. Pj tucker talkin about look. I'll ask. I'll answer any questions. Y'all wanted to about tj tug right on anything else about anybody else. Eric gordon i in answering these questions. Stephen silas their head coach coach. Like i got no updates man. I have no idea. He hadn't texts me. He hadn't called yet anything. Y'all are asked him. Or would you heard from james about james this that the other about james. I have no fucking idea. I've got i don't know about lebanon other guys fourteen other guys. How many how many players were in camp. I got them the worry about. I can't figuring out what's happening with. James harden right now so james harden is putting everybody in the organization was like. Hey we're not. We're not afraid to get uncomfortable. Well congratulations you're comfortable shave and took that as a challenge. Only oh you're gonna come at me like their after trae to brooklyn. Give me out of here. You're gonna come back with well. We we a scare abune uncomfortable. Okay all right. Challenge accepted Let me say. He didn't report for testing until tuesday so now he must have six consecutive negative tests before the nba could even allow them to practice with the team. We're talking about wednesday. Thursday friday saturday sunday monday. So we're going to be moving into next week before james harden and even eligible to go ahead and practice even if he had a change of heart he found jesus in this manner said i acquiesced to now go ahead and i'll be committed. Now do whatever this that and the other. He's still can't reunite to feel so good with teammates until later on next week. He missed the first practice. Because of covid nineteen protocols before stephen sales no idea haven't heard from him no communication. No nothin' so what was all of this. What was going on with james harden instead of him showing up for practice was he doing some individual work himself on his game. No what's he take them back and you know doing something to help them become better basketball player in the better team. Mate and following the guidelines set by the nba in terms of following covert regulations in terms of keeping that pandemic keeping that virus away from them new harden just to make sure that this wasn't a rumor posted pictures on instagram on his instagram over the weekend. The showed him attending rapper. Little babies birthday party in land without wearing a face mask though this man was in a club surrounded by multitudes of people nullity stupid motherfuckers are wearing a mask. He's sleep posted on instagram again. The nba requires player to quarantine at home the past week other than testing at team facilities individual workouts in essential activities. Such as grocery shopping. James harden is in atlanta party. And then he goes over the vegas and he continued the party. And james harden a pre existing condition. He has asthma was basically mean even more vulnerable to the to the virus and this fucking clouds out here up their partying and room full of people. This guy go to a baby shower and the idiot this rapid this idiot. Who's having this child. He's up there in a place in the condensed area with people's around. The by people would no masks. How fucking stupid responsible argue. Goodness gracious sakes alive. And james is right there so i i don't i don't know exactly. Basically he's a breach of contract. Basically he's telling the legal fuck themselves in terms of the required requirements that they have for this guy so unbelievable. After wednesday's practice the rockets remain uncertain about. Where'd clear to practice awaiting word from the nba about the appropriate nineteen protocols following the following hardest. Hold out from training camp so they don't know exactly what they're gonna do. They don't know if the nba's must've final they don't know the nba's say look you know we'll throw in terms of any punishment that you're gonna give for. What hardened did you know. I'm we're going to throw that to you guys. Because if the two of the rockets they ain't gonna do nothing you think they're going to do anything. Punish james harden for doing this think so the rockets owner tillman for t- that he's insisting on. Cnbc was talking about this. Is the team. Team has done nothing in terms of trying to trade him and he said that he's done nothing but gotten better in the off. Season in terms of his team is concerned adding his hope for harden to win a title in houston so as of right now from the owner. I don't know what the gm and coaches i don't know what type of And on what type of meetings around the type of conversations that are happening but tillman for titas talking about yeah and the offseason with the acquisition of john wall christian would and a couple of others. We've gotten ourselves better so yeah we're in a better position to win the title. This season last season. Tillman are you fucking serious. You're not even close. You think. John adams john wall christian would nice player. A good player john wall. We don't know what type of player he's gonna be. We know that he's not going to be the john wall that you're hoping that he's gonna be. You really think that that team in houston is better than the lakers is. Better than the nuggets is better than the jazz better than the clippers. You really think that really. You really think that they're better than up and coming memphis grizzlies team. You think that they're significantly better than phoenix. Now that the chris. Paul you really think that this is the squad. That's going to be able to bring james harden entitled james harden. That's gonna take a look at this team with john wall. Pj tucker kristen. Would eric gordon and be like all yell. Now we're ready to go. Watch lakers lebron. Ad fear you better fear us. Fear the beard in our in my and my background singers. Were roy ray to go. The houston hardens gonna be are gonna be shot the world of course mainly dumb. The man was born at night last night. What does this guy till for to talking about. So here's the thing that. I'm thinking about a windows role. The sports the podcast with your host window wallace. That's me but harden doing with this nonsense within going out the full acting responsible and why they act of acting a fool. i mean. look if you want to hold out if you want to express your disappointment and missed practice and missed the opening and misdemeanor and all that kind of stuff. I get that. I understand that but for you to go ahead and so irresponsibly in terms of going to clubs and going out without the you know violating the rules set forth by the nba concerning protocols for covid..

"Ready rest in peace mr reading. Thank you very much windows. World is sports on your host wonder wallace so glad that you could be with us speaking about what's going down today in the world of sports as i pay special dedication to the greatness of sam coca notice reading the fifty seventh and fifty third year anniversary of the passing of their untimely deaths. I'll be talking about them near the end. Last segment of the podcast. But there's still some things that are going to talk about pertaining to what's going on right now right here. Currently present in the world of sports you read the one thing that was pretty interesting us with excellent article written by mazel. Who i guess for the time being still worked at espn. He was laid off but he wrote something very interesting on. Espn dot com. You speaking about the black coaches or the lack. A black coaches being in college football. We talk about all the time. The lack of minorities and black head coaches in the nfl and luma. We do sometimes somewhat talk about the inequities Black coaches and they're not giving the opportunities to become coaches especially when we're speaking about those in the power five conferences vanderbilt reason why i came across the article. Read it me very interested in talking about dealer my thoughts and opinions the ballot the excellent piece written by may zell but also a kinda came to me the other day because it was Situation at vanderbilt where they fired Derek mason last week black head coach for the commodores. He was eight. No in the seventy seventh season am vanderbilt. Has just one win in the sec. Play the last two seasons so finished mason finished with a record of twenty seven and fifty five and look. I'm not sitting here and say you know this is unjust this racist and this horrible and it's just this end the other four vanderbilt the fire derek mason. They gave him seven years. He was twenty seven fifty five. I know vanderbilt but even at vanderbilt he has them pretty ugly losses throughout his tenure especially in the last couple year. So i mean that firing what justifiable now will. Derek mason wants to become a head coach again. Will he get that opportunity if he wants. Must be a college. Football coach will get that opportunity. He seems young enough to where if you can get a coordinator job and work and put his nose to the grindstone and shows that he deserved another chance. Then that should be the situation but when you're black and you're dealing with becoming a coach a head. Coaching college football especially for speaking about trying to become a coach in one of the power five conferences. It's extremely difficult very difficult if you're black if you weren't successful regardless of the situation the first time that you were head coach to get an opportunity the second time plenty of white coaches who have gotten second and third chances to fail As head coaches. That's not the opportunity. That's not the situation for black head coaches. So that really doubt me to thinking because i don't know what the situation would lovey smith is at illinois. I know mel tucker and michigan state. He just got higher so even in the situation like this after one year. They're not going to fire him. I think about cardinal curled rail. Who's the head coach at the colorado. He's done a good job. Thinking about a couple of others might loxley maryland. I think maryland university of maryland that that program in that community to progressive for maryland to go ahead and do something ridiculous like fire. Luckily after after one season two to season at maryland we can take a look. A couple of other coaches finale. Seeing they seem rather say but when you take a look as of this recording and you see that there's only thirteen black head coaches among the one hundred and thirty fps program. That's the problem. That's the problem that's the problem. That's a real problem and according to the ncaa race and gender demographics database temperature. The programs have black head coaches in the sport in which nearly half of the players are black. In fact in the sixty one percent of the players are black and now two of the fire now now the two of five two of the power five conferences the sec and the big twelve. The do not have a black head coach in fact the big twelve conference. They haven't employed a black head coach since texas fire. Trolley strong justifiably in twenty sixteen in fact none of the conference conferences with leading directors even hired a black head coach and eddie school that they've been to so we're speaking texas in texas. Am and texas tech in in oklahoma. And all these other places in their haven't hired any black head coaches during their tenure as directors. I don't know which ones as far at their years at that position are concerned but dale zero from all of them survey conducted by the ncaa and twenty nineteen sixty five power five schools employed ten black athletic directors to black presidents. We talked about you. Know is not what you know is who you know. Well i mean when you only have a situation where you only have ten black athletic directors in your also speaking about where those black athletic directors. Where are they located in terms. Are your the even in a community or the evening part of the region of the country. Where hiring a black coach wooden raise too. Many years wouldn't raise too. Many eyebrows would be suitable acceptable for the big big donors who contribute financially to those schools to black prizes. We don't know what type of hoops. And what type of things they you have to go through because if you take a look at the geographic and we spoke before about you know now that the sec at fire. Derek mason and you're speaking about nashville tennessee. Which is somewhat progressive that you speaking about. A city within the state of tennessee. The same state of tennessee that No south carolina reelected lindsey graham. So i apologize to tennessee but You know they're not a bastion outside of knoxville. Outside of nashville and probably outside of memphis. Shall we say. I wouldn't call them to progressive but if you take a look at schools and the sec the acc the big twelve really not in progressive enough communities to even hire a minority head coach. If you take a look at alabama louisiana oklahoma. Kansas mississippi tennessee south carolina kentucky southern virginia northern and central florida texas. Not the most. Shall we say diverse. What you're speaking about some of the areas. Some of the community aware of the schools are located. Don't think there's going to be too many folks out there in oxford mississippi jets and bill mississippi starkville mississippi stillwater oklahoma norman oklahoma oklahoma city oklahoma tuscaloosa alabama battle rouge louisiana. Boris kansas knoxville tennessee. Maybe next i don't know but still not not too many places were you would expect in a coach or a deputy director to make a higher of a man who's of color who might be looked upon very well in terms of the entire community is considered in terms of running the football program. Now if you're talking about basketball program they'll problem. Alabama has higher anthony. Grant is harry johnny jones. Oklahoma have kevin's kelvin. Sampson tennessee.

But also ventured into and mastered virtually every style of music, from jazz to classical and rhythm and blues she passed away at her home in Detroit from pancreatic cancer according to the late singer's publicist, the singer was in and out of ill health for. Years last summer In Detroit she asked an audience to keep me in your prayers she. Had to take several breaks, during the show and appeared frail earlier. In the year she announced that she. Would cut back on her schedule two thousand ten she underwent surgery to remove. A tumor and cancelled six months of tour dates. Yet last year before performance of the Chicago theatre she told the Tribune I'm not quitting. And she, said she. Was working on new music with Stevie Wonder. Her musical contributions, were diverse ranging in. Tone from spiritual to gaudy her, singing style came from single source she practically grew up in the church and the emotional intensity and personal. Connection she nurtured there and the music never left her it. Informs her virtually every one of, her top seventy seven one hundred songs including Twenty-one number one Rb hits The thing many people don't understand about this change in my. Career is that I, never, left, the, church, Franklin, once told author David Ritz about, her transition, to secular music, in her late teens the church stays with me wherever I go wherever I sing critic Anthony halibut who has. Written extensively about Franklin's life and career over the decades. Has called the singer a pivotal figure in the way women and African Americans were perceived. In popular culture Franklin's role was such that such that a history of. Black America could well be divided into pre and post Aretha she won eighteen Grammy awards and was the first female artist inducted, into the rock and. Roll Hall of fame and that was in nineteen eighty-seven not only was her multi. Active measures soprano an instrument, of stunning beauty range in power but. Her piano playing often encounter points to. Her singing was Justice accomplish she influenced countless singers Whitney Houston Adele Patti LaBelle. Natalie Cole shock on Mariah Carey Luther Vandross Jennifer. Hudson Fantasia but her legend was forged not just on her ability to hit all the. Notes and, embellish them With establishing technical flourishes but also to convey emotion Nuance and deep feeling Her fame seemed destined she grew up in the household, of, the famed, preacher c l Franklin and was mentored by his friends who included gospel greats Mahalia Jackson Clara ward and Albertina Walker as a girl Franklin mesmerized congregations of her father's house of worship in Detroit. New Bethel Baptist church but her career. Was not without hardship Aretha Louise Franklin was. Born on March twenty fifth nineteen, forty.

Because we're fathers travel she was primarily Ray reared by grandmother and has a teen Franklin was a soloist in her father's church and. Began recording gospel songs she dropped. Out of high school, she toured the gospel circuit singing in churches around the country was a hard life during which she learned firsthand about racism while traveling the back.

Columbia records there she was overseen by the legendary producer and talent scout John Hammond appears who saw her as an immense talent who shouldn't be wasted on pop triples trifles Hammond made a number of fine recordings with Franklin that bridge the world of gospel and jazz but Columbia grew impatient for hits in the. Orchestral embarrassments in choice of material that noise. Underlying strength her contract expired she moved. To Atlantic records and became under the Super Bowl supervision of Jerry Wexler who, admired, her, gospel recordings and. Wanted to update their field to a pop market Atlantic was an iron be juggernaut with a roster that included Wilson Pickett Otis Redding who was affiliated with Memphis based Stax label And.
