"She continued working on behalf of all those americans who weren't being given a seat at the table now shirley chisholm may not have won her bid for president of the united states but in the good fight the book she later wrote about her campaign. She acknowledged that honestly winning. Wasn't the reason. She ran iran. Because someone had to do it. I in this country every body is supposed to be able to run for president. But that's never been really true. Iran because most people think the country is not ready for a black candidate not ready for a woman candidate the next time a woman runs or a black a jew or anyone from a group that the country is not ready to elect to attack highest office. I believe he or she will be taken seriously from the start. The door is not open yet but it is a jar shirley chisholm died in two thousand and five three years before she could see barack obama get elected the first black president of the united states and fifteen years before she could witness kamala harris got elected as the first black and first female vice president before shirley passed away. She was asked how she'd like to be remember after she was gone her response. I'd like them to say a shirley. Chisholm had guts. That's how i like to be remembered. And thanks her fighting spirit. Her fearless determination to forge her own path. She absolutely will be everyone. Thank you so much for welling with us this week..

"Dickinson read An excerpt from Shirley Chisholm is memoir on Box and on Bost. American idea of going on the campaign trail has evolved over time. Today, we might conjure images of candidates eating fried foods at the Iowa State Fair or making gaffes in Michigan. But believe it or not. In the early 19th century, we didn't have airplanes or Twitter. Not to mention Iowa or Michigan. Back then the whistle stop tour was just taking shape and the breathless sort of journalistic coverage we enjoy now just wasn't possible. Give you a sense of how far things have come in terms of coverage and the tone of that coverage. Let's revisit the contentious campaign of 18 28, John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson engaged in a bruising contest full of accusations of bigamy, cannibalism. And worse, broadsides were more likely than objective reporting, and the press often felt like partisan propaganda. The following are excerpts from the pro Adam's newspaper National Journal on the pro Jackson Telegraph. Deal with one of the tamer accusations of the day. And Andrew Jackson was nearly illiterate. The National journal. Mr Adams is a scholar. Is he to be superseded by a man of no education? Mr. Adams is a state Smith. Is he to give way to a mere soldier? Mr Adams has been bred in the Cabinet or in the school were national laws and interests are objects of study. Is he Make room for a man bread in the camp experienced only in civil Broyles and who has resigned every civil appointment on account of his admitted incompetency to fill it. I imagine that was written by an angry, judgmental mustache. And this is the telegraph. History abound, with splendid examples of men remarkable for great qualities who could not even read their own language, much less write it with accuracy but to argue against the presumption of General Jackson's fitness for the presidency because he cannot spell his absurd. We care. Not if you spell Congress with the K. He may not withstanding, understand the rights and duties of that body or of the people or himself as well as if he spelled it correctly. And that presumably was written by a sentient hickory stick. So maybe journalists do a bit more of Journalism on the trail these days. Still, as you can hear, some arguments about a candidate's fitness for office have remained pretty much the same. It's too bad because if we could agree on a basic presidential spelling test Primary season could be a lot shorter. When we return hundreds, Thompson.

People had to know that it was possible for someone with decency and the fighting spirit to overcome the system by beating it with his own weapons. Years in Brooklyn and New York City and Albany. I watched the rotten political system that stands in the wind change because its operators are beneficiaries of the status pump. They're committed against change because they have things wired for their benefit now. Changing the system to benefit the people more would mean that they would not be the king maker in the wheelers and dealers any longer.

I think that is a very good thing for American democracy. And for me personally, it gives me a sense ofthe national belonging. Harris grew up in Oakland and Berkeley, California, where she says she was immersed in the civil rights movement. She often talks about the strollers. I've you she had as her parents took to the streets to protest and in her memoir she wrote about hearing Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to be elected to Congress Speak. Congresswoman Barbara Lee worked on Chism's presidential campaign. When Camilla was selected as the vice presidential nominee.

Where I am woman came from, I guess Heaven, you know came to me and it wouldn't leave me was simply a phrase that over and over I am strong. I am invincible. I am woman.

She came to the US after winning a singing competition in 1966. Her career was just beginning to take off when she decided she had to record I am woman, even though her label Capitol Records thought it was too strident to feminists ready, and her manager husband, more convinced the song would speak to a new generation of independent woman. Without any support from the label. They worked the phones trying to get radio stations to play it. It was so hard it was so hard, Helen Reddy and that 2014 interview. You know, so many radio stations would say, Well, we're we're already playing a female record. It took nearly a year for I'm women to work its way up the charts and become a number one hit. When ready, then won a Grammy for best female performance. She thanked her manager husband, I would like to thank Jeff wrong because he makes my success possible. And I would like to thank God because she makes everything possible, calling God she a national television was audacious. But remember, this was 1972. The same year, the Equal Rights Amendment passed the Senate and Shirley Chisholm ran for president. The Supreme Court made its decision in Roe vs Wade just a month after I am Woman reached number one on and I am women has legs over the years has been covered over and over with the cultural impact Illustrated in part by the gleeful karaoke version, sung by the main characters in the 2010 movie sex in the city, too.

Over the past few weeks we have been experiencing another freedom summer.

We'll be hearing from some of the Black Women at the forefront at today's movement who are fighting for change in making history to ensure that we have justice for all. Her name was even floated as a potential. VP. Pick for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's. It is no surprise that would ever congress is debating issues of equity and justice. Congress will lease voice is one of the strongest and most prominent today we talk about her work as a college student, a member of the Black Panther Party and what Congress is, do we to fight systems of oppression to reshape reimagined our political world? Congresswoman Barbara Lee thank you so much for joining us and happy belated birthday. Breaking very good happy with you. I'm really excited to talk to you today and for our listeners, the congresswoman is such a legend and all of her work that she has done in. Congress over the years especially for Black Brown and indigenous communities by I have to ask you this question because it's something that I just wanted to talk to you about for so long is. You were a part of the Black Panthers. What was it like being? Black Panther I actually was not a member of the Black Panther Party I was what they call the community worker community workers had a lot of responsibilities as the Black Panther. Party. Members and remember the Black Panther Party began as a result of police Gupta brutality and the African American community. I mean. They stood down the police because things, police, murders, police Retali- as we know now were occurring then and they were the first organization that really took the police on, and so it was out of that that the Black Panther party formed, there's the Bible programs because it was not only an organization that address police brutality, but it was an organization that addresses chemic-. Racism and poverty. and. So what I did, and which was really phenomenal work and I was a single mother on public assistance with two little boys. I helped sell newspapers like math a newspaper on street corners I actually participated in the breakfast program for children who didn't have whose parents didn't have enough money to buy food and that's actually the breakfast programs from the federal government. Actually. Started as a result of the of the models that the Black Panther party you. I also really worked with you. He knew then did the research on his book Revolutionary Suicide. It was really phenomenal project I got to know Huey Newton Bobby Seale, Elaine Brown, Erica Huggins Joan Kelly, who just passed away and many of the leadership of the black. Panther party because community worker and student I was very involved in a lot of the work with party members. I actually brought Shirley Chisholm got involved in politics through the first presidential the first. Time. A black woman ran for president and that was sure children who was the first African American woman elected to Congress and so the Black Student Union president I invited her to come to milk college where I was attending and I got involved in her campaign by herb insisting that I register the vote and I had a class go because I didn't WanNa work in any of those campaigns. Well, bottom line is working her campaign and got the Black Panther party really involved in voter registration efforts. I. Was the one that went and asked Huey Noonan Bobby Seale to consider becoming politically active around early Chisholm campaign and they did. So I worked on all phases of the black. Panther. Party and all the different divisions I actually bag groceries. You know the panthers had a whole ten point program which again, the Free Breakfast program for the kids They started the Community Health Center Movement by instituting the George Jackson free medical clinic they did sickle cell tests. In fact, there was the Black Panther party that raises awareness about sickle cell disease as a as a disproportionate impact African Americans Fast Board Twenty Twenty people in the African American community and Black and Brown news still struggling disproportionately as it related to food security food desert healthcare disparities, unequal education. I. Helped. Start. Actually I wrote the first proposals for the Black Panther Party community learning center. They establish a Black Panther party school and so I was very instrumental in working on that project. So I did a lot of work with the Black Panther Party and I can just speak to how phenomenal they were and how necessary they were and how we should as we move forward. You know there's this Symbol in a gun and Andy. In government in Ghana called and Copeland. If the bird beautiful bird looking back holding an egg in her mouth and like in order to move forward in order to blackboard and you have to look back, we have to know our history we know where we've been and we have to build upon that so that we can move forward it. Now a wonderful young people in the Movement for Black, flags, or dreamers all the movements that are taking place are a continuation of what I see as the civil rights movement of of today, as well as what Black Panther Party actually started as it relates to stand down and and thing that that policing in our community. chain stop disproportionate killing black, and Brown people

"Bill and Senator Harris coming from a law enforcement background. We're in the moment where we're still facing, you know the ramifications of the uprisings who saw this summer? And people want to see more. Can't let let's talk a moment about Shirley Chisholm famously on bought in Boston, She was the first black woman elected to the house and then ran for president in 1972. What affected just seeing a black woman run for president at that time have on future generations, including someone like Senator Harris. I'm so glad you brought Shirley Chisholm because I just had a story where I actually spoke with Hazel Deuce. Who's this long time activist 88 years old and Steve walked me through that moment of when she thought sure, Lynch's um get on that stage in 1972 in Miami and for her for so many black women. It was more than just the historical moment. It was a moment of hope. A moment that they knew would open more doors a moment that they knew that eventually would potentially lead to opportunity for someone to come through, like humble hairs, And that's really the legacy of chisel. That's the legacy of Fannie Lou Hamer. That's the legacy of all of these black women who have come before Camilla hairs and I just I thought it was so pointed last night when she said that as Americans, we all stand on their shoulders. And that's true because once again black women have been at the forefront of these fights for so long. It is just now that people have fully began to realize their power in the strength that they bring with them to this table. Cat. The pandemic overshadows everything about this election in this convention, and Senator Harris spoke to that last night, connecting it to the work we need to do to fight racism. This virus. It has no eyes. And yet it knows exactly how we see each other. And how we treat each other. And let's be clear There is no vaccine for racism. We've got to do the work. Yes. And look, we know through my reporting to the reporting of some of the others that this pandemic has disproportionately impacted black Americans and other people of color. They have been hit hard Really by what I've been noting as three crises going on at the same time, which is the health implications of people dying, which is the economic fallout from the pandemic, people losing their jobs, unable to put food on the table for their families. But then you couple that with this moment that we're in with this reckoning around racism in this country. And so you can't talk about any of this without noting that race is at the center of this election. Racism is at the center of this country, and I think was senator Hairs did last night was really make sure that we brought that to the forefront and recognize that in order for this nation to move forward, it's gonna have to grapple with this long history of racism in this country. There's no other way for If the Harris Biden ticket is successful in November, as you mentioned, there will be no more black women in the Senate. For both of you. Why do we need more black women leaders and how would this country be different if that were a reality? I think that the reality is that representation does not utter and regardless of how you feel about the representation, black women deserve to be at every level represented for the work that they do, and that is very obvious in the Democratic Party. And I think that if Senator Harris makes it to the White House that her absence will be felt, I think she brings her prosecutorial background whenever we see her at a hearing, and we will lose that, and it is a shame that in this historic moment where we're celebrating such a game that we have to always be thinking about what we're losing, there's always a sacrifice and I think that that will be underscored, No matter what happens. And for me, I think this is an important point. You know? I spoke with Dr Jonetta Cole, who, of course, was first black woman president of the Historical Hbcu Bowman. And something that she said really stuck with me, she said. If you see one, you can be one. And I'm saying that because for every little black girl in his country for really every little girl in this country when they see someone like senator hairs when they see someone like Stacey Abrams It just lets them know that they too, can do that. But everything that could just agree with her because while this is a moment of celebration, we can't fully declared that it's a victory because America has yet to see its first black woman governor. In his 2020 think about that and let that sink in. We still have so much more work to do. Co. Bragg is a reporter for the 19th and Cat. Stafford is an Associated Press reporter on race and ethnicity.

They get in good, trouble necessary trouble. They call things out otherwise ignored, elevating our nation and changing the course of our lives for the better With every vote we cast for forward thinking, honest leaders we chip away at in green Systems of inequity, and we've been the arc of justice. True leaders make sure that policy is informed by all of us. West, Bridging our burden passed to a safe, equitable and even joyful future.

"Shirley Chisholm took office of the U. S. representative from New York number one she referred to herself as a black woman congressman which delights me she also recognized the role that women have played in getting her elected ANC recognize the fact that women were largely being excluded from Washington politics so to try to start closing that gap in her first term she hired only women for her staff at the same time she knew that as a junior legislator she really needed experienced people to help her in order to be effective so a lot of the women she hired had served on the staff of Joseph Prest NYCH who had elected not to run for reelection almost immediately after being sworn in Chisholm started breaking protocol in Washington it was expected for junior legislators to basically listen and not make waves but when she got her committee assignment it was to the rural development and forestry committee of the agriculture committee this was completely outside her experience and also not particularly relevant to her constituents back in Brooklyn New York she thought this was ridiculous and she tried to be recognized to speak to protest it but every time she stood up a more senior representative would stand up and be called on finally she walks down to the well at the floor of the house and when asked what she was doing down there she said quote I've been trying to get recognized for half an hour Mr chairman but evidently you were unable to see me so I came down to the well I would just like to tell the caucus why IBM at Lee reject my committee assignments this is really unheard of it was not done among junior legislators especially to do something like this but she was ultimately reassigned to the Veterans Affairs committee this is definitely not her first choice but it was at least a place where she felt like she could serve her constituents because there were plenty of veterans living in Brooklyn friendlier Chisholm continued to take bold uncompromising steps her first speech in the house was anti war and she announced that she would vote no on every budget bill until the country started using its resources quote for people in peace not profits in war a lot of sexism like questions about what her husband thought about what she was doing and I'm very like what does your husband think of all this garment in July of nineteen seventy during hearings on a house anti discrimination measure Chisholm said quote during my entire political life my sex has been a far greater handicap than my skin pigmentation from my earliest experience in ward political activity my chief obstacle was that I had to break through the roll man assigned women a young woman in a newspaper story I read somewhere it defines that role beautifully she was talking about her experiences and the civil rights movement quote we found that the men made the policy and the women made the peanut butter sandwiches I like to comment on this quote really quickly before we move on because a lot of people take this out of context and try to make it be a statement that in general in the world gender is a bigger issue than race and that's really not what she was saying secrets confining this to her political life very clearly not like a blanket statement about which thing being a woman or being black is harder Chisholm's agenda in Congress was ambitious but it wasn't nineteen she wanted more programs for the poor and unemployed more support for education more funding for healthcare and protections for civil rights she helped form the congressional black caucus and later the congresswoman's caucus which is now the congressional caucus for women's issues on August tenth nineteen seventy she re introduced the equal rights amendment which was passed by Congress on March twenty second nineteen seventy two but was not ratified by the states that could be a whole other podcast and maybe will be at some point in the future when I ran for reelection in nineteen seventy C. one eighty two percent of the vote but in nineteen seventy one she published her autobiography which is titled on bart and unbiased by the time unbought and on boss came out Chisholm had already been thinking about running for president in November of nineteen seventy two she told her staff that she planned to run that same year she was appointed to the education and labor committee which had been one of our top choices when she was first elected to the announced her intention to run for president on January twenty fifth nineteen seventy two at Concord Baptist church in Brooklyn and her speech she said quote I am not the candidate of black America although I am black and proud I am not the candidate of the women's movement of this country although I am a woman and I'm equally proud of that I am the candidate of the people and my presence before you now symbolizes a new era in American political history with this announcement Chisholm became the first black woman to seek the nomination of the Democratic Party sometimes you'll see her listed as the first woman of any race to seek the nomination for any major political party but that is not accurate Margaret chase Smith ran for president as a Republican in nineteen sixty four and had twenty seven delegates at the Republican National Convention Patsy mink who we mentioned earlier also ran as a Democrat in nineteen seventy two she had been invited by Oregon Democrats to run on their ballot to draw attention to the movement against the Vietnam War and she withdrew after the Oregon primary this has been described as more of a symbolic campaign but it still counts as it happened in her run for Congress to them based on kinds of sexism are running for president Walter Cronkite started a news broadcast about her candidacy by saying a new happens rather about it has been thrown into the ring she was also excluded from televised debates and took her case to court at which point the FCC ordered that she be invited to debate as well it wasn't just gendered language and exclusion from debate at least three confirmed assassination threats were made against Chisholm during the campaign someone stole stationery from one of her opponents and type debates terribly spelled badly written press release claiming that she had been in a mental institution this release went on with a whole series of completely fabricated claims and led to an FBI investigation as there was obviously racism and sexism all tied together and the response to her campaign but in this campaign says really hope to build a coalition among anyone who was disenfranchised or marginalized not just black people and not just women she was also vocal in her support of equal rights for Hispanics and Latinos as well as gay people and indigenous people she had called to have a native person leading the department of the interior which oversees the bureau of Indian affairs and she did get a lot of grassroots support many of the people who worked on her campaign were first time participants in this process whenever people ask her what they needed to do to get involved she would tell them the first thing was to register to vote and this is just a few years after the voting rights act of nineteen sixty five outlawed voting discrimination based on race but our efforts on the campaign we're really hampered by a lack of money and by disorganization from within the campaign she had some high profile celebrity backers like Harry Belafonte and Ossie Davis but other people weren't as enthusiastic even when they said they were on her side Gloria Steinem ran as one of the delegates in the New York primary but kept doing this kind of half hearted endorsement thing was he was personally to them but thought George McGovern was the best of the male candidates to them finally told her to either endorsed McGovern or her not do this weird in between thing and he said quote don't do me any favors by giving me this semi endorsement I do not need this kind of help she also faced criticism after candidate George Wallace was shot on may fifteenth nineteen seventy two we've done a podcast on Wallace before in case you needed any of that story he was notorious for his views on segregation and race although during this campaign he announced that he would no longer support segregation Chisholm visited him in the hospital and people were appalled but she felt like visiting was just the humane thing to do and she told him quote you and I don't agree but you have been shot and I might be shot and we are both children of American democracy so I wanted to come and see you the Democratic National Convention that year started on July tenth and by that time it was absolutely clear that there was no way to someone's going to get the party's nomination instead she hopes to have enough delegates to influence the party platform that would be created at the convention she wound up with a hundred and fifty two delegates which is about ten percent of the total after being on the ballot in twelve states that was more than some of the other candidates but not enough to have an impact on the party platform or her much bigger goal of naming a black candidate as the vice presidential running mate she was also really disillusioned by how the process so more like it was about candidates making deals with one another for their delegates then it was about candidates trying to do right by the voters but a more personal disappointment was that her friend and colleague Ron Dellums of the congressional black caucus was supposed to be the person to nominate her at the convention but he backed out at the last minute her friend Percy Sutton did it instead on the last night of the convention surely Chisholm gave a speech in which she said she would support the Democratic Party nominee George McGovern but before she could give that speech she got a little lengthy standing ovation even though there were so many disappointments at the Democratic National Convention Chisholm insisted that she did not regret her decision to run she said I ran because somebody had to do it first I read and because most people thought the country was not ready for a black candidate not ready for a woman candidate some day it was time in nineteen seventy two to make that someday come later on she described her candidacy as not exactly opening the door for other women and people of color but at least leaving the door ajar in the nineteen seventy two election George McGovern was defeated colossally by incumbent Richard Nixon and just a huge landslide what kind of matched landslide we all know how that worked out there she returns to her seat in the house of representatives and she spent seven total terms in the house in nineteen seventy five she co sponsored a bill to expand the federal school lunch program and then she led the representatives to overturn president Gerald Ford's veto of it in nineteen seventy seven she also became part of the house rules committee she was the first black woman to be on that committee in her personal life she and Conrad Chisholm divorced in nineteen seventy seven and she re married are still hard week junior who lived in buffalo and her later terms in the house of representatives chosen didn't defy protocol in the way she had her first and over the years this shift started to draw more and more scrutiny what she saw as an attempt for consensus building was seen as being too conciliatory and not ambitious enough she was also criticized for increasing time away from Washington some of this was to go on speaking tours and some of it was to be with her second husband after he was permanently.

XM urban view you know one other conversation i had actually here on martha's vineyard was with my wonder name twin joy in read yes that joy in re from MSNBC. We were both here for a higher heights event last week where we chatted about her new book the man who sold america trump and the unraveling of the american story. If you haven't already you should pick it up something she said during the course of our conversation as the inspiration for the title of this episode she said if you aren't scared you aren't paying attention. Take a listen to a portion of our fireside. Chat it and see what she means. So i am happy to bring up to have a fireside sister. The other joy we are both in brooklyn and even though we do not look similar even though we have different phrases of our name quite often we are approached <hes> <hes> with people who think we are one another joy in read is the one of the brilliant host on MSNBC NBC <hes> we spin saturday and sunday mornings as both my husband and my grandmother will say hey let's see what joy saying which means turn to MSNBC and i am so happy happy to have this conversation with her not only about the book that but about where we are so welcome to the chair joy in read believe me she get emails for her and emails else for youtube and people walk up to her because i'm also president of brooklyn aa CPA and so people walk up to her in brooklyn asking her about in WC no and even worse when i have i have moved. I actually moved out of brooklyn. Really moved to harlem is closer to work is the first time i ever live in brooklyn. I was born in brooklyn so i'm a little out of place at the moment but when i used to live in brooklyn i used to live down the street from the end of the offices so i'll be walking down the street and joy and both of us will go away and the repeat constantly back and forth to us as now there we have proof armor not one person so as i mentioned like a just my my grandma ninety three year old grandmother and my husband home watching this weekend and the conversation was grandma what you wanna watch see what see what joy saying and so we are used to now the commentary in the conversation that you bring every weekend but before we get to the politics of the day and even the book i wanna start in the beginning and learn a little bit more about you something that i ask on the show when we have guess on asked what was your first civic action in and particularly for the guests that was on previously talked about black women have been civically engage as part of who we are so we have an origin story ori. What's your origin story before. I said i want to say thank you to joy my wonder twin joy but also glendale and cam for having me here today <hes> <hes> i've i've watched from outside this organization grow. It's so important to do it. Because since we're going to do all the work we may as well have an organization and make your foremost black woman and doing everything anyway dealt immigrants win just trying to save the country. It's all we're doing and so basically my story. Is you know i'm i'm basically just a nerd a nerdy kid. I was saying to glenn to earlier that. I can't wear glasses anymore. With the i was looking. I was admiring your glasses. This is i can't wear them and when i was a little coke bottle glasses kid. I loved watching the news. I got to stay up late because i got fascinated with the iran. Hostage did crisis when i was in fifth grade and i was like mom can stay up and watch this and she was like okay and so i used to get to stay up later than my older sister and my little brother 'cause. I just watch this every night. I was just like just just obsessed with it would watch all the sunday shows. I was like a pure you know little political nerd <hes>. My mother was also very active. I'm other immigration to this country. In nineteen nineteen sixty from guyana my father emigrated same year from the congo they somehow both ended up in iowa which is crazy and it basically basically because when the program that also brought brock obama's father here when african countries got liberation both the russians and the US trying to recruit sort of technocrats people who had some position their dad had a spot in the village you know they were trying to bring them over and get them to either. Come to the russians out or come to the american side so my father came here and the way the africans did it. They were just like we can. We go affordable. It's betty. This seems very very inexpensive. Send them to do. They didn't know where it was. It was just like i like the price the price of the seems good syndey and that's where they ended up and so he ends up in in iowa. My mother ended up their owner. Has he ended up there but anyway that's what they meant so but the difference between the two of them they're mayors didn't laugh because he was a reaganite conservative and she was a very very liberal and so she used to take my mom used to take my sister and my brother and i devote saw my first real civic engagement was being voted with my mom when she finally got her citizenship or first the person she was able to vote for jimmy carter so we were we were on the carter side of it and then on my own. I would say two of them one. Is you have shirley chisholm up there. So we were obsessed with shirley chisholm. She was half guyanese and since my mother was guyanese shirley chisholm wisconsin everything and i loved her because she also had the same hair as my mom my mom also had the same afro so they looked similar and they sounded similar with that sort of formal sounding accent and so my i don't remember this but my sister remembers who says that when i was a little kid shirley chisholm came to denver and apparently as a little kid i went up to her charm term was like saying my whole little nerdy according to her and and she was into it so that was my first time experiencing politics and then the second one i'll say is that my sister when she was in junior high school actually started doing knocking knocking on doors for democratic candidates and we just went around. All we were doing was giving out flyers. We are part of it. The first actual civic thing i did was to vote my first vote ever was for jesse jackson in an eighty eight. That's how old i am in the primary then i had to vote for dukakis. The fine brings up by what we're used to have this conversation when people all the time <hes> particularly with <hes> bernie voters are like i didn't have the same passionate advocate. I was like look. We've been voting for people. We didn't really believe in for a long time the host until obama. We were just how to do this. We know that people think that we just voted for just because he's black whatever it's like. No we're used to evaluating candidates and who is the best at the time. I mean with obama i honestly do you think obama i worked on that campaign because i quit news in two thousand three because i was very anti war so i laughed and i took the wellstone action train and went and worked on press for this organization george soros who is a great man by the way funded us and we tried to beat george w bush and so i you know having worked on the political side i'll tell you that blackboard is a very dispassionate. They didn't like john kerry we didn't there was no passion for him but black women at least it fine and they went on voted for him in the big numbers black men didn't really as much but when it came to obama i then worked on that campaign because some of my friends from the four campaign were on the obama campaign so they brought me in because they were having some issues with the black media because of course democrats never engaged black media they owned by black media.

Some New York City council. Members are introducing a Bill to make the government bidding process with corporations more transparent. The new law would prohibit officials from signing nondisclosure agreements with companies as happened in the Amazon deal councilmember Brad Lander says he feels that level of secrecy should not happen again. If the law had been in place, the city would have had to say we can't sign a non disco. Agreement. So there's two choices. We can make a bid, but it has to be public and people would be able to see it. The Bill is cosponsored by council members Monty Williams and Jimmy van Bremer atop regional Federal Housing administrator is calling for the arrest of three Niger officials after a report found they regularly lied about elevator.

She tweeted that the Niger employees should be jailed after they were charged with dozens of felony counts. For falsifying inspection reports. Daily news reporter, Greg Smith says Patten has little authority to pursue the case herself. She has almost nothing to do with this. I guess it's well intention that she does ask a question that is important. And that is did anybody higher up the ladder condone this behavior that isn't really important question. That's the most important question. Smith says the case will be handled by.

There Trump's visit comes on the heels of a big development and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a guilty plea by his former attorney Michael Cohen, and what it revealed about Trump's efforts to land a business deal with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign NPR White House correspondent tamra Keith is traveling with the president and joins us now from when his IRAs their town. Hey, ATI sometimes when a president goes overseas. The White House is trying to leave all the domestic troubles behind is that the case this time, the answer would seem to be no. And and the reason I say that is that President Trump was supposed to have a meeting here with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he abruptly cancelled that on the way to Argentina via tweet saying it was because of Russian aggression against Ukraine, but then this afternoon there were. Reports of a possibly an informal meeting happening between Trump and Putin. Those reports were being pushed from Russia and the White House put out a sort of an odd statement referring to the Mueller investigation. Sarah Sanders sent this along she said the Russian witch-hunt hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia, which was not entirely the answer to the question that we were asking another way that we know that the president's thinking about it is that he's been tweeting about it from here in Argentina a little while ago. Reporter's got to ask the president questions, and and one of the questions was about why he cancelled his meeting with Putin. He insisted it was because of Ukraine, hopefully, they'll be able to settle it out. Flowers amazing with president. The basis of what took place. With respect to the ships, sailors that was the. In the meantime, what else has been going on at the g twenty one big thing that happened today was before the g twenty started a signing ceremony at the president's hotel with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signing the US MCA that is the trade deal that will replace NAFTA. One interesting note is that during remarks, President Trump and president Pineyro of Mexico. It was his last day on the job both referred to it as the US MCA, which is the preferred title that President Trump likes, but prime minister Trudeau kept calling it new NAFTA, even though President Trump does not like the term NAFTA at all. But you know, this is a notable moment because this is a step in the process of President Trump, keeping a campaign promise that said congress and legislatures in Mexico and Canada still need to sign off on this on another subject. The Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is there. He's of course, been under scrutiny since the killing of journalist Jamal kashogi has he actually interacted with President Trump yet. So a White House official says that they just exchanged pleasantries that there was no discussion. This comes in pretty big contrast with a video that's been circulating of Russian President Putin, and m Bs exchanging sort of an intricate high five that looked very celebratory the president is under some scrutiny about this because he has questioned the CIA assessment that NBS ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi. That's NPR's tamra Keith tamra. Thank you. You're welcome. And we're going to start right there with the g twenty talks in Argentina for our regular week in politics chat. We also need to take stock of another wild week in the Russia investigation. David Brooks of the New York Times is here in the studio as he often has on Friday, David with you and Susan Glasser. The New Yorker, welcome to you. Thanks so much. So President Trump signed this new NAFTA deal today, except as we just heard we're not supposed to call it NAFTA anymore. That's controversial. We are referring to the United States Mexico Canada agreement the US MCA, Scott, I'm tempted to call it also maybe prospects for a trade deal or some sort of agreement with China that may be coming together down at the g twenty Susan. Let me start with you does this count as progress in a year where we have spent a lot more time talking about trade wars than trade deals. Well, look, I think President Trump made a decision to sort of pull back from the brink and to declare victory with the reincarnated NAFTA. Whatever you wanna call it, most experts, and I'm not one on this subject. Do believe that it essentially is a reincarnated NAFTA that it builds on the foundation substantially of the original went and by the way, it's not attend deal. I should point out that there's going to be a real political fight. I think. Up here in Washington on Capitol Hill over approving this. So it's not over. Although President Trump was was taking it as a victory lap. Today was also strengthened by government coming in Mexico, which will inherit the steel by a president on his last day there. That's right. And and I thought you saw the lasting hard feelings as a result of these very tough negotiations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who did appear at the last minute was uncertain at the signing ceremony today in Buenos Aires. But had some strong words for President Trump, and you've had this amazing spectacle. What have we taken to get here of the United States going after candidate one of its closest allies, David your takeaway, so far from the g twenty well, so far the image of Muhammad bin Salman and Putin doing an end zone dance together is the big takeaway video circulating of them doing a hi fi. Looking very cheer an image. It's a symbol. It's a symbol of an era in which the wolves of the global international order are on the March and undeterred because there's no one. Deter them. And so that's one thing. The second thing I think is the China US relationship and this thank heaven is not a Trump related story to me the big change in US China relations is that we used to have people who were friends of China somewhere, foes of China and the foreign policy establishment sort of split. That's no longer the case. Now, everyone sees China as a challenge, but as a foe Hank pulse in the former treasury fare gave a speech in Singapore recently in which he laid that very clearly and he was very much in the camp. So when Trump talks tough on China trade, he now has a lot of people who are not normally his friends actually thinking he's doing the right thing me loop.
