"The stories. And it's sort of written without reference to the book and really just as these are these new stories. I'm discovering it. In real time. And that's what makes it so fun, I think, to listen to. But, you know, let's be clear, right? This past couple of years has really seen an amplification of the zero sum politics, right? The idea that progress for people of color is threatening to white people, right? What is now called the great replacement theory that cost us so many precious lives in Buffalo that was the animating unifying force behind the attacks on January 6th as researchers revealed what were they really thinking? It was that, you know, basically this country was being stolen from people of color from a multiracial coalition that elected Joe Biden and they had to take it back. And so in some ways, the terrible events of the past two years almost since the book came out have really reinforced the critique of the zero sum, but at the same time, I think we have got to tell stories. That show people what we're supposed to be, right? Everything we believe comes from a story we've been told. And that's why I wanted to spend my time as a follow-up to the book, really focusing on the hopeful part. On the positive examples of people overcoming their differences overcoming their prejudices and assumptions to do the right thing. And it's rare, right? That's not what leads on the nightly news. As you know, Jonathan. But it's happening all over this country. People are living in the America that's becoming, and they're figuring out how to do it. And that's what I wanted to shine a light on. Let me get your reaction to something. And I know I'm going to miss the last name up. But yasha monk had a recent book. The title is the great experiment. Why diverse democracies fall apart and how they can endure, which warns that diverse democracies can fall apart basically because of the zero sum paradigm you detail in your book. And he writes, let me just read in part. He writes, part of the reason for that is human psychology. We have a deeply ingrained instinct to form groups and then discriminate discriminate against anybody who does not belong. Later, he goes on and says democracy actually makes managing diversity harder. Democracy is always a search for majorities. And so, if I am used to being in the majority, but now have more, but now you have more kids than I do, or if there are more immigrants coming in that look like you rather than me, there's this natural fear that I might suddenly lose some of my power. Yeah, I think that that is a description of a tendency and I think the only piece that that's missing. And I was actually with yasha at a writer's conference over the past week. We got into this debate. The only thing that's missing there is the importance of leadership, right? As I said, everything we believe comes from a story we've been told, right? And so that has been that our diversifying America has been the reality under president Obama. And the reality under president Trump, right? And so we have to recognize that all of these tendencies are within us, right? We are a country of great contradictions, a country formed on a belief in the value, a belief in a hierarchy of human value, excuse me. The idea that some groups of people are better than others. And that some groups of people aren't even people that our ancestors were property. And yet at the exact same time and in the exact same breath, our founders gave us this idea of equality and liberty and freedom. And so that's what I say about any kind of human tendency is that there is an equal and opposite human tendency and the difference comes from not just nature, but nurture, right? What we are compelled and incentivized to do, what kind of behavior is applauded. And amplified. And what kind of rhetoric is given full volume? In our media and in our politics. I'm going to get you on two things. One of them is another audience question, which is a really good question from Peter western home in Tennessee. He asks, with some states going out of their way to censor our nation's history with regard to systemic racism, will it become even harder to have a shared understanding of our history? It's such a great question. Pete, thank you so much for asking it. You know, that's also something that is something that happened between when I finished writing the sum of us and today when I was out in the field again recording the podcast. Let me be clear about why these attacks on our children's freedom to learn are even happening. They're happening because for a long time throughout our history, it's been written by the victors, right? Throughout our history, we have been woefully miss and undereducated about the extent of racism, xenophobia, sexism, indigenous genocide. Less than 10% of high school seniors polled in 2018 could accurately say that slavery was the primary cause of the Civil War, right? The victors had been miseducated us for a very long time. And it's really only been in the last number of years that we've began to see a broadening of fuller, more accurate understanding of our history being taught by some school districts and then of course being part of our discourse and popular books that are read. And so this has been an organized campaign funded and coordinated by right-wing partisans that has the goal of creating a zero sum narrative, right, of saying, white parents, you should be afraid of teaching black history, right? It's our history or their history. When of course, it's actually all of our history. And we are all stronger, smarter, more strategic, more vigilant if we know the full facts of what got us here. And it's also, frankly, I think a drained pool strategy, right? Because if you're scaring white parents away from public schools, saying, right? Your kids fragile psyches can't be trusted in this integrated school or with this integrated curriculum. What you're doing and the right wing sort of architects of this strategy, no full well. They've always always wanted to attack public education. And wanted to drain the pool of public education because it's in diverse integrated public education settings that our children learn empathy, that they learn to be great citizens, that they are educated in a way that helps them, frankly, be vigilant against the divide and conquer strategies of right-wing politicians today and in the future because they see how it has divided us in the past. And so I want to be clear about what's at stake and why it's happening right. This isn't just some natural grassroots groundswell. It really is a political and partisan strategy, but this question of what history we get to tell who benefits from writing historical wrongs who benefits from everyone understanding history is a theme throughout the sum of us. One of the most astonishing things that I uncovered in the journey here is the existence in rural Nevada, small town called minden outside of Lake Tahoe. That still has a loud air raid siren. That sounds twice a day. And the second sounding, the one in the evening, has for a hundred years or so, been enforcing a sundown ordinance. Oh wow. Literally, meaning, get out to the indigenous people who might have been in town, you have to get out. You have 30 minutes from the sounding of this siren to get out of town, or you'll face beatings, arrest, et cetera, under this old law. Now the law, of course, is no longer on the books, but that siren is still sounding every day in this town. And there's a multiracial coalition that's come together to stop the siren. And so, you know, this history is not even passed, right? And I think it's so important for us to talk about that. And a little bit of time that we have left. I've got to take you back to a truly remarkable moment in 2016 on C-SPAN. When a white man named Gary from North Carolina called in to talk to you about his racial prejudice, you stayed in touch with him. You met, you met him, what did you take away from these exchanges? Yeah. The thing that really moved me in his first question was he said, I want to change. He described all of his fears of black people and prejudices, but then he said I want to change because I want to become a better American. And there was something about the way he identified this middle aged small town veteran living alone with his dog. He identified that to get over his prejudices would make him a better American. And as the dozens of conversations and meetings that I had with Gary over the years have really shown me that basically what matters most is who he's listening to, right? If he's watching cable news and hearing the distorted vision, this dystopian vision of our diversifying America. That has an effect, right? It tells him who his fellow Americans are, and that he should be afraid of them. But when we would have conversation. And what he would read the books that I recommended to him, and he would go out and force himself to talk to people of color in his community and strike up a conversation with his neighbors, he was activated to his better angels, right? And he began to really see the sort of poisonous rhetoric for what it was. So that's why I've committed myself to telling stories that try to activate our better angels. Whenever I talk with friends about when they tell incredible stories with people, the people that they've met, I always ask them this question because I can't see them. So I ask, who would play them in the movie? Who would play Gary in the movie? Oh, that's a good question. That's right, because people mostly haven't seen his face. So Gary would be played. He could be played by a lot of people. There are a lot of white male actors out there. Let's see. He could be played by. You know, actually, I think who would do a great job of playing Gary would be oh God, why am I blanking on his name? The guy, yeah, the guy who was in the west wing who played the president. Oh, him. Yeah. Think of his name. Or Martin Sheen. Martin Sheen, Martin Sheen sort of physically looks like him or the guy who played the big lebowski. With that sort of like every man flavor. He really Gary is a sweet and kind person who's sort of like an avatar for your kind of typical white middle aged man who's trying to figure out his place and are changing America. And you're talking about Jeff Bridges who was in the beach. Thank you. Yeah, I think Jeffrey is going to be great. Heather McGee, as always. It is such a pleasure to talk with you. Congratulations on the podcast. It's great to go from the book to now hearing even more stories, but now hearing your voice and the voices of the people you meet along the way in this part of the journey.

"None of them are asking for their money back either. Big donations came from guys like rob rob line. Rob Reiner, Jeffrey katzenberg, Jennifer Aniston, the pretty girl next door. Sam Elliott, Harrison Ford, Martin Sheen. Martin Sheen narrated Lincoln project videos. So did Mark Hamill, even the biggest pussy them all. John Legend promoted a Lincoln project attacked ahead against Trump less than two weeks before the presidential election. Clearly, he would have something to say, right? They always have something to say, him and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, not a word from those schmucks. Not even Chrissy Teigen, who has to hit Twitter to talk about the littlest shit like how the only woman on the island of saint barts over the holidays, the only woman who does nose piercings on the whole island where all the rich and famous go, Chrissy Teigen got mad because the girl fucked up her nose appointment, her appointment. She didn't get to she didn't get the piercing right. So I'm nonsense. So Chrissy goes on Twitter and basically destroys this lady's life. Like, don't go to her kind of shit. She's the only woman who does it on the fucking island. I'm sure she has other means of income, asshole, Chrissy Teigen. Steer clear of this woman who makes her whole living doing this. She can do that. And ruin her livelihood, but God forbid she sounds off on John weaver and all the slimy shit he threw a teenage boys, not men. While he sat there in his position of power, top guy in charge, shitting all over Donald Trump and getting him the hell out of The White House. Maybe there'd be a different story when it's Chrissy Teigen's kids who come up against the pedophile. Maybe that's what it'll take for any of them to condemn fucks like John weaver. He's frauds. By the way, one of my listeners and patrons asked me a question about what I thought about Jeff Bezos stepping down from Amazon. I don't really know. I don't know, but it does follow with all the resignations of major brands that we've seen in the last year and a half. I know that last summer there had been like 1300 CEOs from massive corporations throughout the world that stepped down from their position in the preceding 12 months. In January alone, there were 200 chief executives vacated their comfortable positions. And they cashed in, obviously, like they all do, but they left. And these local businesses either. This is Nokia, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, L Brands, LinkedIn, match, Hulu, Tinder, groupon, Disney, Harley-Davidson, Mastercard, Nike, eBay, you get the picture. The list goes on and on. Why are they doing this? It's not that uncommon to see top level dudes step down when there's a recession. That happens, but shit got crazy in 2019. A lot of these companies saw like insane stock market highs. The economy was booming. I mean, Corona was just a beer. It had nothing to do with the virus at that point. But this type of mass exodus that didn't happen even in 2008 when the whole fucking bottom fell out. What the financial crisis and then the subsequent recession didn't happen then. So it doesn't make a ton of sense for a guy like me to put two and two. I don't really understand why it's all happening. Because most of these high powered dudes left before coronavirus went all across America. Last march. Some of the theories that are making the rounds, you know, like Jeff Bezos, if he didn't leave when his dick pic was circulating, I don't know why he thinks this is a better time..
