Growing Up In Style: "Patterns of the Past" by Susan Choi
"I'm here to introduce a series of original essays titled growing up in style writers on discovering fashion in america in this one the novelist susan choi author of the national book award winning novel trust. Exercises writes about her love of fabric patterns as a child in south bend indiana here susan reading her essay patterns of the past. I hope you enjoy. Historians of fashion seem to agree that by the time i was born in nineteen sixty nine. The son was already setting on the golden age of sewing. But there were few signs of this decline where i was growing up in south. Bend indiana my mother like so many mothers owned a sewing machine and knew how to use it how this come to be. I asked her recently. She gave a verbal shots over the phone from houston where she lives. Now if you read the directions and follow the pattern it would come out all right. She recalled she didn't even remember perhaps because they were as ordinary to her as grocery shopping. Our trips to the fabric store. Oh the fabric store. Even now decades later when google those words and look at the photos my heart thumps with desire to be clear. These are not photos. A fabric for sale online but photos of the interiors of actual physical places where one goes to touch bolts of fabric cards of rick rack buttons buttoned to a stiff cardboard backing or tumbling loose in a jar dispenser displays of threat arranged by color the spools curved surfaces gleaming like candy and every kind of beautiful ribbon in every color and texture and pattern the fabric store. Unlike the grocery store made me hungry the for. What exactly wasn't clear at the time. It was something much larger and much less defined than the outfits. My mother would make me from the items. We chose the fabrics and notions and trim but the outfits i loved with my whole heart and remember as clearly as if they still hung in my closet. The ruffled pinafore made from a white on white print of tiny flowers trimmed with red rick rack and finished with the application juicy. Strawberries on the bib. The shirtdress of multicolored cotton printed with patterns resemble embroidery the truly glamorous halter dress with a triple tiered skirt of pastel. Blue pastel pink. Pastel yellow says my mother now in her eighties on the other end of the phone. I lovingly describe her creations. She is impressed. I remember so while she has zero memory of sowing the any of these things though she does remember making herself address with extremely big sleeves. They were in style that year. She says she wore it a few times and decided the sleeves looked so stupid that she tore them off and wore. The dress sleeveless the fact that unlike me my mother is white exceedingly pale small boned blue eyed and with the cheekbones of film star both oppressed me throughout my childhood. And lay somehow outside of thought even to articulate it now feels uncomfortable but the facts were and remain that my pale blue eyed mother never matched my black haired brown eyed dark skinned self always far darker as a child than i ever get now because i was outside all summer. In an era before sunscreen in elementary school in indiana. I was cast as the lone indian in the thanksgiving play more. Generally i was constantly looked at especially or at least so it seemed to me when standing next to my mother. We didn't match. I harbored a fantasy fearful half escapist that i would turn out who've been adopted from some faraway land. Even my father who really was from a faraway land only explained my appearance without removing. My anomalous miss. He was to novelists himself ends that hunger. I felt at the fabric store. Larger than any one outfit could satisfy for the choosing of the fabric and the notions and the trim was always secondary to the choice of the pattern and the choice of the pattern was never i understand. Now about the pattern it south. It was about the girls the winsome the willowy and the overwhelmingly with token exceptions white girls who modeled the pinafores and shirt dresses and halters the tiered skirts and even the full body. Pajama like halloween costumes. On the outside of the rectangle envelopes housing the patterns. Remember those remember how they were often filed in boxes so that your fingers walked through them as they would later walk through. Lp's at the record store. When i think of patterns my mind says butterick. And i bet that the majority of the close my mother made me were from patterns put out not by simplicity or mccall's but by the butterick company which also produced vogue patterns having licensed the name from conde nast bruising those patterns of my past online where especially at sea they abound as if the golden age of sewing never ended. I have to wonder if i always chose butterick patterns on the strength of the package illustrations alone. The simplicity girls are oddly wooden and slightly mis proportioned the mccalls girls look like cartoons but the butterick girls still quicken my heart. I recognize my secret childhood. Self that lanky limb d- flush cheeked auburn-haired spirited white girl. I was deluded enough to imagine. I might be twin sister to anne of green gables. No less than two miniature area clock recognizing that hopeless longing to be entirely unlike myself delicately white as affirmed by one hundred percent of my world is a part of moving past it and perhaps even a part of reclaiming those buttons and bows those bullets at every possible fabric delicious all on their own after concluding online photos that it might well be the store of my childhood. I called stitch in time in south bend but it had only opened in nineteen ninety. Three there was a fabric store back then an ireland road by the old scottsdale mall. The woman who answered stitch in times phone told me. When i explained where i lived fashion fabrics that turned out had opened in nineteen seventy one just in time for my first toddler outfits and closed just under two decades later having withstood. Even the machine made onslaught of gloria vanderbilt. I know about that story. Because i worked there. The stitch in time woman went on. But before i could exclaim that maybe she'd helped me choose buttons or ribbons. She politely ended the call. An actual customer having arrived looking. I imagine for the modest but real transformation that a pattern and some fabric can provide.

"Elation that locker room man you have no idea to put it to back to back is good now. We got to get some rest and find a way to get three. Let me take over the city. The dirty birds back the dirty birds are back. And so the falcons may not be enough to salvage this particular season. Maybe a quarterback change coming. Maybe a new head coach. Or maybe you saw that breakdown. Welcome to atlanta players play. I was disoriented. Who in end zone. I haven't seen that for a really long time. One of the best guys in the league just can't get it for six. We're presented by progressive insurance. Obviously you know the falcons. And the texans acts their coach pretty much one after the other but since then low and behold the falcons with remorse who has a little experience in the division former head. Coach of the tampa bay bucks gave come to life. They knocked off the vikings when the vikings were playing terrible football. But that was a road win when they put up forty certainly wanted to play for them. Then they lost kind of squeaker to the lions who are also playing a little bit better but then a division win on the road and carolina and then yesterday taking care of the broncos at home so raheem morris atta just salvage. The season is now three and one. He's got one head coaching opportunity underneath them. There's plenty of guys that have gotten second chances. Learn from the first opportunity. i mean. Even bill needed that second third job in some ways after the browns and that one day so with the jets. So let's talk about this. Should they hire raheem morris full-time. That's the first question especially with the dearth of minority coaches in the league. Three black coaches one hispanic four minority total. I think he certainly deserves a second opportunity. To challenge. you gotta go back to rahima been no rahim since ryan was with me at the new york jets when he was just a guy who worked for the team with hostile university here in long island new york and he worked with with the tampa bay buccaneers. He was an assistant defensive back coach. Mike tomlin mike tomlin lead. He kicks up to the head defensive back coach shortly after they hire them in tampa as defensive coordinator. He never call to play as a defensive coordinator. He was like hired in a fire. Jon gruden abruptly as a head coach with zero hair coaching experience. At all right so he goes into tampa. I think he made the playoffs. One year they won ten games. They drafted josh freeman at quarterback in enact being of turned into a disaster in so they want to get him out of tampa after four years or three. Maybe it was three three to four years but rahim was young young head coach inexperience. He went from hanging out with the players as an assistant defensive back coach to becoming the head coach which wasn't right. Now he gets a second bite at the apple. Adam gates got a second bite at the apple in straight from miami. He didn't get any time out. Time at least rahim has gotten time out time where he's now been an assistant coach in atlanta yonder stands in a little bit more certainly giving the job if he continues on this pace. You're minority coaches. anthony lynn. Brian florez. Mike tomlin raheem morris ron rivera. That's it in the nfl steelers cowboys. Why was it so close. that's next. Thanks for listening to sean.

They paired the field down to have like eight reiver's than they raced and they go to certain places they pair it down to four and then on the final weekend. They actually afford drivers with all of them eligible to win the championship. So it's cool. It's different you'll see four cars on the track which is crazy normally. You're seeing twenty thirty thirty five cars all going but in the pair it down they just want the drivers that are eligible to win out there. I like that. Why not have all these other guys that have no chance to. We always acting the race. It is kind of weird to watch the track. Be that empty but it is really cool to see.

"If you've never seen the painter Jacob Lawrence Migration series. I urge you to look it up. It's sixty panels depicting the great migration in these rich brooding colors. Hard angular shapes. It was Lawrence's real time effort to document the contradictions of this remarkable event. My Dad was into Lawrence and I guess his paintings were among the mini little ways. My Dad passed on a reverence for this generation of black people to me. So it's hard for me to hear. Mike Jackson look at his parents home. Look at what they worked so hard to build and conclude. This isn't worth keeping but also I get it. I mean I own part of my grandmother's old house in Indianapolis and I too. I'm not sure why we keep it. I know there's a lot of people like US okay. Can I get your full name? What you do how you might introduce yourself at a party. Like Ginny went to talk to South Benz Director of economic empowerment. Name is Al Kina Aldridge. She stumbled into another personal story like mine. I would describe myself at a party. Uddhav another one of us who's questioning the value of a family home. It's so interesting because I grew up in this town in it's so segregated. This is just a minute or two into the interview and already the conversation turns to where she grew up. And why how long has your family been in South Bend My family came from Brownsville. Tennessee my great grandmother. She worked at studebaker. Rosie riveter of studebaker. At least how I think of Harry. Akina grew up on the West Side and Lasalle Park. The neighborhood. People call the lake. That's the red line area of South. Bend that the better homes families didn't want to move to because of the industrial dumping their. You'll remember. That area is now a superfund site but back then her family built a house there and like the better homes families they also had to fight for basic infrastructure in the neighborhood when they moved in and we had a two bedroom home with like family of ten in it until we build a larger line and my uncles and their father built a larger one and my great grandmother had a great retirement. In like you know that that was their moment in the sun but that was their moment and she's not sure she'll have hers. Her family worked hard to create some generational wealth. And yet I think my great grandmother like had more wealth than I do at this point and I'm like graduated from the University of Notre Dame and she was rosy riveter in studebaker factory. And like what does that say about opportunity for African Americans in this community or anyone. Okay this is that now that she works at City Hall. She meets a lot of people from around town including people from her graduating class at Notre Dame that she's never met before because like you said their lives are so segregated we should have been friends are alive. Why am I just meeting you? You live like five miles away. Her job at City Hall is trying to bring public money to neighborhoods like the one she grew up in and it is so I like would describe myself as a bridge builder between communities and just trying to break down those barriers but interpersonal life. She's confronting the same reality. As Michael Jackson Aquinas family story is different from his in fundamental ways. But they arrive at the same place. What I think is a real tragedy and speaks to kind of people doing everything they can to you know. Reach that American dream in like you're given this land that's worthless and that's even more worthless now Finnair. It was forty years ago and keep the House I in a mental value. But I'm not sure that it's GonNa be worth what my great uncle thought. He was building for his sons and grandchildren. There's no dollar amount that I think you can put on the hope that perhaps my great uncle fell building at home with his son that will potentially become a burden to put a dollar amount. Who knows lost hopes? There is actually some recent research that has tried to do. Just that put a dollar amount on lost hopes and dreams everyone living in south bend has had to face the challenges of a city still defined by the loss of industry but the neighborhoods were. Akina and Michael's family home stand majority black. The lake always was the better homes area where Michael grew up. It became a black neighborhood last year. The Brookings Institute published a study that says just flat out this fact address in a black neighborhood makes those homes less valuable Hayes this Andre. I called the study's lead author Andrei Perry. Hey how are you and I asked him to walk me through the findings. How did you isolate race and racism and I? They had to control for all the stuff that might be at play other than race statistically accounted for crime and education and walkability and all those fancy zillow metrics and even with these controls they found a square foot of residential housing and a majority. Black neighborhood is worth twenty three percent less than the same square foot and a neighborhood. With few or no black people and cumulatively that amounts to about one hundred and six billion dollars of loss equity hundred and fifty six billion dollars. And there's this narrative out there that the condition of black cities are result of individual choices of its residents. No we have strong assets in black American black neighborhoods. They are just valued. I WANNA clarify the. We're not talking about. Necessarily you know an individual black homeowner in a largely white neighborhood and look. That person is suffering racist result. It's really about the concentration of racing so it's really about segregation that we're talking about well. There's an interesting chart in evaluation report and you see how home prices go down or up based on the concentration of blackness so as the concentration of black people increase. The housing prices declined. So you know. There's a sweet spot in there where you have just enough black this not to be a problem yet. You know what's interesting when I present the data all across the country People lose sight of that even white people in Black neighborhoods. Their homes are devout. And so yes. This is an American tragedy. And we know that that money would have gone to send someone to college to Support a small business it would have funded education. And you know we're talking about people who who doing everything that they've been told is required to achieve the American dream and they're not reaping the equity based on those efforts. So you have been in these conversations. With policymakers Last summer you testified before the Subcommittee on Housing and Community Development. Can you recall that testimony about that? I'll ask myself and members of the appraisal community the appraisal lobby whether or not we believe discrimination exists and he asked us to raise our hand. I was the only one that raised there and again. If there's one thing we have clear evidence on discrimination is housing policy but after this hearing the number of appraisers came up to me. I'm not discriminating. I'm not raise their rules against that. I don't do anything wrong and I said well remember that. For most of American history it was legal to segregate and those practices that were created during that period. They're still with us today. You can draw a line from what Andres talking about back. A hundred and twenty some odd years to the Supreme Court ruling Plessey v Ferguson. The one that said segregation is legal that ruling not only put an end to any last vestige of reconstruction it also set up decades of perfectly legal racial discrimination in both state and federal economic policy. I'd like to say plainly. We cut a check to white Americans and we didn't cut one to black Americans and I bring up the pass for this reason. We've been down this road before where white communities were struggling and the federal government found a way to solve the problem essentially by making sure folks kid purchase a home. They invested in transportation policy since helped facilitate the creation of the suburb. This is all the new deal between the thirties and the end of world war. Two that we're talking about. That's exactly right. So we had a number of programs initiatives that supported the economic mobility of struggling whites and It was successful. So whites were able to accrue wealth. Blacks were not. We need to figure out ways to get more capital to folks who've been denied it historically and and that's that's the point. Gosh it just feels like such a recurring cycle. I mean this was the conversation like way back in the eighties even right that. Oh there's no capital.

"But isn't that mouse anymore? I ever can. Don't look at it as my house anymore. It's not that the house did anything it did. Great things was number house. It's been almost seventy years since the better homes were first built and only a handful are still owned by the original families. It took so much to make these homes a reality and the challenges never stopped wants to hear your area on Elmer students primarily NATO black families over only when you say that just the seventeen and eighteen hundred. Lock everything else white. That was just those two bucks right. Two blocks in middle welby white neighborhood right right right from the year that Mike's Family moved into North Elmer. He and his peers were the first black students to go to the local schools Margaret and Leroy. Cobb son told me that on the first day of school he thought the local families through a parade for him and the other kids and he found out years later that it was a protest gathered talked about living. It wasn't just in school. Mike and some of his childhood friends told me about the neighborhood. Little League they built a brand new literally part UNIFORMS HATS. Uniforms pants teams. They had managers. They had all this new equipment. And so we're going to join the literally. Then here comes real baseball. We come to find out that the boundaries stopped it. Like O'Brien Street. We would alas blocks of population but they still stop the boundaries. Right before where we live so we couldn't play at the League in late. Nineteen sixty three a decade after the better homes were built the studebaker plant and southbound closed. Everyone lost their jobs nuno. They laid off the grid. Work related him off. He went to work lead him. All you know. And eventually he had to. They closed lift south end and the family's still had mortgages to pay and think of what must have been like that day in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. When the Great Studebaker Auto Company collapsed in the shock brought our city to its knees. There may be no moment in south. Bend history that looms larger than the closure of the studebaker factory mayor. Pete launched his presidential campaign in an old studebaker building. Buildings like this one fell quiet and acres of land around slowly became a scape of industrial decline on winter. Are we going to be okay? Are we still going to sell mistreat house with all these good food and all this stuff if you tick through? What happened to each one of the better homes of southbound families? They were by a lot of standards. Okay a lot of them found other jobs. Some lived out their lives in their better homes. Some moved out of South Bend. Some stayed but moved to bigger houses but with the loss of jobs and industry almost every neighborhood in the city changed. Including there's so in. Mike says it's not my house anymore. He doesn't mean literally he's still owns the house he just doesn't want it anymore. It was never a plan to save it for upcoming Jackson's so there's nobody my family that would ever come back here and live there and you want them to know that'd be like a step down in a way. I can pour money right now. Make it great. I'm not GonNa do that is in a high crime area. That's going down in value is like taking your money and putting instead of putting into savings account you just throw it on the banks steps walkway away. It doesn't make sense coming up. We face a cold economic calculation the monetary value today of the homes the great migration belt.

"Craftsmanship judge is why the country knows about southbound. Today it was studebaker that put it on the map in the forties and fifties student crews were iconic cars way ahead of the style curve with tough names like the president and the Commander Heroes in movies and TV shows drove them. Celebrities like Schaja Gabor advertised for them. People were flooding into South. Bend to work in the factories. They were making cars and also tank engines for World War. Two Mike's father started working in the foundry. My mom was stay at home mom and she would bring him his lunch pail and all that stuff and I. It's where they made all the metal car parts. This was one of the most dangerous jobs in the factory because it required handling liquid metal all day a lot of times the minorities the black guys that worked a studebaker had to work in a foundry. Because it was the dirtiest hottest here was job in the factory and Mike's Family lived right across the street from the foundry with other black factory workers. It one of the only places in the city were blocked. Residents could live their houses resembled army barracks and they were built fast to house the studebaker employees. Where things about southbound that you just loved narrow question no. I called up Nola Allen. Because she like. Mike Jackson grew up in this neighborhood. It was affected close knit society. Everybody knew everybody else's put it like that. She doesn't live in south bend anymore. She's retired lawyer and professor in south Florida but she remembers. The families worship together a church every Sunday. They shop the black business district nearby and they grew food together in a community garden. It was the old idea of village. Where did I get out of line? 'cause everybody knew who you were living in that neighborhood was loud and smoky and definitely a health hazard. Nobody wanted to make their lives. There and these families were starting to have kids and thinking about the future they wanted and they knew they deserve something. Better well my parents. My parents needed a place to live the question. Whereas how could they achieve that at the time? A black family looking to buy property had very few choices for example. Black residents were welcomed by land in a neighborhood called the lake. Factories were dumping hazardous. Waste there and today. It's a superfund site. So absent moving next to a noxious dump. The families would have to come up with a plan. They needed a radical idea. Somehow or another the idea was given to my parents and they picked up the ball and proceeded to run with it. The story goes that Knowle's parents were playing bridge with a black attorney named Jay Chester Allen. He and his wife were a South. Bend power couple Jay. Chester was the first black member of the southbound city council and his wife. Elizabeth was the first black woman. Attorney in Indiana. The Allen did own their home in a white neighborhood near Notre Dame they were both lawyers people with the means and the know how to buy a house but even they had to jump through hoops to get their home and somewhere in that house hunting process. Something clicked for J Chester Allen. Realtors and banks would turn down individual block families because they knew they were block but it would be a lot harder to turn down a sale if the buyer was a company so over the Bridge Game Jay. Chester Allen told Knowle's parents there is power in numbers. If you WANNA buy an indifferent neighborhood start a company a cooperative so they started with a name. My Mother Wanted Deputy magazine better homes and garden show. I'm certain if that's where she got the idea of calling it better homes now. They needed people and that wasn't a problem. Because everyone knew everyone knowle's mom was talking to people at Church. Her Dad was finding people at work and before long. They had a critical mass twenty. Six families came to their first meeting a secret meeting. This is Juno that famous beginning of it. Gabriel Robinson is a German transplant to South Bend and the author of a book about better homes and she has copies of all the meeting. Minutes May Twenty First Nineteen Fifty a nonprofit organization was formed and given the name that our homes of South Bend Inc and it says a contract was read by lawyer. Chester Alan and likely prospect was mentioned by him as a beautiful sight for building. This was the secret site that they would never even mentioned in the minutes. It seems so simple and so Plane but I can see how much hope and fear and courage. Let's lay behind this simple statement. We can only really practice courage when we're afraid and the better homes families had plenty to be afraid of. I found this transcript. That will give you an idea of what it was like. It was from a hearing on housing discrimination held by two Notre Dame professors. It's around the time better. Homes was trying to pull off this land. Purchase and at the hearing black. South Bender testified one by one about the racism they faced while trying to find a home white realtors and homeowners told them flat out they would not sell to black families and they said in every offensive way that you can imagine when one black family did manage to buy a house in a white neighborhood across was burned on their lawn and white homeowners who wanted to sell to black families. They were also threatened by their neighbors. It's wild the violence white people were willing to inflict on each other to keep their neighborhoods white physical threats delivered by letters and late night. Phone calls leaving obscene objects on porteous throwing rocks through windows and at the families children throwing paint filing false criminal charges trying to get people fired from their jobs and even petitioning to have a homeowner committed to a psychiatric ward by force. You can see why the two thousand six families of better homes met in secret. The lands they wanted to buy was on the undeveloped edge of a white neighborhood. That's why it was dangerous. They did not want them to succeed so no. There was not a whole lot of talk about what they did. Outside of the group even within the group better homes was saving their money so they could afford to get. These houses built J. Allen Sealed. The deal with the state to the group was officially incorporated and a few weeks later with the help of a white lawyer. Their Corporation managed to buy the land and together. The twenty six families became the proud owners of seventeen hundred and eighteen hundred blocks of North Elmer Street. But that was just the first step interviewing was right. There's an oral history collection at the Civil Rights Heritage Center out of Indiana University and they have an interview with the youngest members of better homes Margaret and Leroy. Cobb gives you a sense of the kind of troubles families faced even after they had the land time we in commerce so much problem about having a home bill. There were no sewer lines and there were no sidewalks. We the heck of a time travel trade to build forms three separate contractors gave the better homes families the run around the I wouldn't stick to a price wanted to use sub-standard building materials and another wouldn't follow the blueprints an all twenty-six families were still living near the studebaker factory. They were attending meetings after long hours of pouring metal. And they're just throwing money two and three hundred dollars at a time into these systems that they don't know and that aren't yielding immediate results. These were people who are not college educated and and not really had any involvement with city and county and state government. Most of it was legal. Gobbledegook already knew. They wanted a house and this was a way for them to get a house. They were risking head and hard for something that wasn't guaranteed to work out and then the group gets a reminder that what they're doing could have violent consequences read medicine just a warning the tape. I'm about to play. You has a racial slur. You're somewhat said let's meetings and talked to people this matter. How in this a letter? The community I don't wasn't signed it.

"I grew up in Indiana but raised by southerners but adds people came up from Alabama through Ohio and the hills of Kentucky before they landed in the Midwest they were chasing manufacturing jobs these new opportunities open to black workers because of World War Two. So I'm a proud child of what's known as the great migration estimated six million black people who left the south when it became painfully obvious that the promises of the civil war and equal rights for all that none of that was going to become true. And because that's what I come from. I kinda relate to Michael Jackson. My Dad always said Mississippi was a great state to be from away from what he meant. This Michael is from South Bend Indiana and when we sent reporter Genie Koss to the heartland for this election. She came back with this story about his family's migration as you can tell doesn't really feel that attached to see the south well by the way. Mississippi is where I was back in episode one with the Lester family. Who made the choice to stay in the south rather than Migrate North? Yeah I mean I think in so many ways they're like his his parents are the opposite story rightly they leave. They come up north. Start this life together. And that's why Michael Jackson is like southend forever. He has a lot of good memories. Mike Jackson would tell you that his heart is in toughened. Its always been in southend and I really got to see that when we drove around. You see that triangle on across D- here listen to we used to come eat hamburgers right here at toasties every time we were here. The train's going by. He's wonderful hamburgers. Yeah Mom and dad and the three of us five of us the Jackson five all right so he's a south bend resident so he doesn't live in the city he in the suburbs and the House that he has on a golf course called. Grainger people in town or whatever so you live out in granger you know. This was kind of like the ultimate place to end up economically connell. You made it kind of deal and so when people say oh you live in green. What does that mean that means? Oh you must live in a big house with a swimming pool at that comfort at least material comfort. It's kind of his inheritance mine too. I mean I don't have the pool and all that stuff but for me in for Michael and for millions of black people who grew up in the industrial midwest our parents and grandparents made a space for us and what had been a very white world in this season of our show. We're trying to understand the history behind some of the most intense debates in this election. And we're thinking about why this country is still struggling to become a multi-racial democracy that means going all the way back to the era just after the civil war period call reconstruction when the US. I decided to be an interracial society. And maybe it's because my mind's in that space thinking about the time when this country literally expanded the definition of American that's why I've become particularly sensitive about a rhetorical device that national politicians use this implication that mid western places places like where I grew up are somehow the most authentically American communities. They talk about the heartland and a lot of the time. What they really mean swiped. Here's how we're GONNA win. Force this president to stand on that debate stage next to somebody who actually lives in a middle class neighborhood in the industrial midwest but people judge is not the only one talking about the so-called heartland Americans great river running straight through the middle of our country through the heartland of course so much of our political debate in the trump era has centered on the idea that someone needs to stand up for the forgotten rust belt for years. You Watch as your politicians apologized for America. Now you have a president who is standing up for American and we are standing up for you and it irks me because it feels like you to racists a whole other midwestern experience families like mine in Michael Jackson's and the people of the great migration who also helped create the prosperity of the twentieth century manufacturing boom. And they did it. In spite of a whole set of rules and laws intended to leave them out of that prosperity history gotTa Understand. The great migration was at least in part or results of the fact that the country gave up on reconstruction even though black people and abolitionists had one these incredible political victories. Congress didn't have the last say the Supreme Court yet and it stepped in and said Nope you see of graphic illustration of what can happen to your rights in the hands of a conservative Supreme Court. Historian Eric Phony. Whose MOST RECENT BOOK. The second founding details this history says the Supreme Court turned the fourteenth amendment into a dead letter. We've talked about the fourteenth amendment in a previous episode it's the constitutional amendment that established the idea of equal rights but Congress still had to pass laws enforcing those rights. And that's where the court stepped in I. There was a big ruling said. The amendment applied only to state governments private actors. They can do whatever they want. So that was a serious blow to federal efforts to protect the Rights Day to day of African Americans and so white businesses created whites only train. Cars refused to sell black people everything from a home to a cup of coffee. You name it all the stuff that we understand now a segregation but that still wasn't the all encompassing regime that Jim Crow became in the twentieth century. The step to Jim Crow is a further. Step most famously Plessey Ferguson. Because that's about state laws. Plessey the Ferguson. Now plus he's the case you probably know about its infamous decision that state laws can mandate segregation because separate can in fact be equal. That's the legal system. We came to know as Jim Crow and it spread all over the country including to the Midwest heartland where white people police it just as violently as they did in the south. Which is what Martin. Luther King learned when he came North to Chicago in nineteen sixty six and brought thousands of people into the streets to protest segregated housing. But I can say that I have never seen even in Mississippi and Alabama mobs pasta and of hate field as I've seen Chicago. They threw bricks and bottles. Someone hit king in the head with Iraq because they wanted to keep neighborhoods close. Oh yes it's definitely a close side and we're GonNa make it in open and we feel that we have to do it. This way and audit to bring the evil out into the open while King in the marchers were out in the streets. A lot of black families like Michael's like mine. We're fighting another way so in this episode reporter. Jimmy causes is going to tell. The story of how twenty-six Black families tried to open a closed. Society tried to get a white neighborhood to share their heartland. They wanted the best for their family so they weren't rebels but they were bound and determined to not you know to get what they want. What happened back. Then and what's left of it? The story begins like many things in the industrial midwest in a car. Do you mind if I sit in the back. When I first started reporting and southbound I went on a lot of driving tours and so what are we doing? This is where is your. Every tour is different but all of them inevitably have three things. I something related to Buddha. Judge like where he grew up or a place where my guide saw him in person. We went to the Chico's after after the parade and peak came all. Then there were groupies coming in right second. There's a vacant lot whether we're in a neighborhood that has seen better days and other vacant lot another vacant lot or driving down a street lined with historic mansions the homes we just joe passed on the contrast the economic and racial segregation. It makes everyone bring up. Two city blocks of sort of matching single family homes. People know them as the better homes better homes of South Bend. That's where they were the people who put those houses on those two city blocks. They were fighters but in a quiet and patient way not protesting in the streets. But in crowded living rooms and law offices and bank boardrooms and at one point with the help of an Olympic gold medalist in a suit and that story starts at the third place that every driving tour in south bend has a visit to this giant empty field this over here with studebaker as baths feel now but just imagine as far as you can see. There used to be a huge. You factory the factory that Mike Jackson's father moved to southbound to work in Studebaker as far as you can see up to that building and beyond studebaker and you know it's belching smoke. It's piles of cold..

"Strategic nightmare with top Republicans condemning his decision on Syria President trump touted his negotiating skills on the world stage.

In Washington where the state of our Union is experiencing whiplash president trump is making a rare retreat this weekend after an absolute pile up of scandals admissions and miscalculations that seemed to shock even his staunchest allies late Saturday night the president cancelled his plan to post the G. Seven summit at his own wral resort in Florida reversing himself after harsh criticism from both sides sides of the aisle that he was steering government money to his own pockets in fact for a president who needs the support of congressional Republicans to keep his job president trump's to be testing the limits this week at least one Republican lawmaker didn't rule out backing impeachment after the White House Acting Chief of staff admitted out loud Thursday that there was in fact a quid pro quo involving US aid to Ukraine a confession followed by yet another attempted walk back and amid violence in Syria the top Senate Republican declared the president's withdraw a quote strategic nightmare while the president touted a temporary ceasefire that many viewed as a complete and utter capitulation to Turkey for the fourth week in a row the White House and top House and Senate Republicans have refused to come on this newscast to answer our questions talk about all of these important developments invitation remains open we hope they will come to explain all of this to the American people because especially at a time when the White House as N. did the practice of regular press briefings they are shirking this important part of their duty to the American public to explain what they are doing with your money and in Our Name joining me now at twenty twenty presidential candidate and a veteran who served in Afghanistan South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buddha judge Karadzic thanks for joining us we appreciate it it'd be with President Trump referred to what's happening at the Turkey Syria border as the ultimate solution in a tweet and take a listen to something he said about the Turks and their border fairness they had a legitimate problem with that terrorists they had a lot of people in there that they couldn't have they've suffered a lot of loss of lives also and they had to have it cleaned out they had to have it cleaned out ultimate solution reaction my reaction is that those kinds of phrases have the darkest rhymes in world history we'll talk about cleaning out people especially when they're there's an ethnic minority that has faced atrocities and appears to be facing crimes against humanity and atrocities perhaps beginning right now look the charity concerns of Turkey can be taken seriously without green lighting the kind of thing that this president has allowed but the real consequence of this isn't just what's happening to curb towards or what's happening in Syria it's what's happening to the United States of America because when American presidents when an American president talks like that when an American president and pulls the rug out from under people who trusted us with their lives that's GonNa have implications for American interests all over the world any place in the world where we need someone to trust us to go out on a limb to fight alongside our troops it's going to be harder and that could last for decades and will make America less safe I want to turn to the Democratic race if I can you attack Your Twenty Twenty Opponent Elizabeth Warren Senator Massachusetts on stage over how she's GonNa pay for Medicare for all a Warren campaign aides subsequently told CNN quote she's reviewing the revenue options suggested by the two thousand Sixteen Bernie campaign along with other revenue options but she will only support pay fors that meet the principal she has laid out in multiple debates is that answer good enough you know we need to see how this is going to be paid for because right now whether you copy paste the Bernie Sanders math or do it some other way there is a whole amounting to trillion of dollars in how this is supposed to work and the really unfortunate thing is we can deliver health care to every American without that problem and without the problem that I think is the central problem in her plan of kicking everybody off of their private plans in four years or less that's why the approach that I'm offering medicare for all who wanted is a better approach is better because it gives you the choice to decide whether you want in on the public medicare option or you WANNA stand your private plan and it's better because it's actually paid for for the attack is kind of confusing because as you know in two thousand eighteen you were asked whether you supported Medicare for all and whether insurance does not belong in healthcare and you tweeted back in part wrote Pete Buddha judge politician Doohan's fourth and forthwith declare most affirmatively and indubitably unto the ages that I do favor Medicare for all as save any measure that would help get all Americans covered so what happened to that two thousand eighteen medicare for all plants the substance is the Ainsley my tone their reflected being cheeky but you are supporting Medicare for all and no longer are I think medicare for all means everybody can get into Medicare and along the line this year politicians started saying that it's only Medicare for all if you eliminate all private coverage which is why I now talk about my plan with the language of Medicare for all who wanted but I think the issue here really isn't terminology the issue is what is it that we're going to deliver and does it give everybody access to Medicare and mm choice my plan does both of those things it's what most Americans want it's what most Democrats want it's the best policy and I'm not having these problems describing how it's GonNa be paid for so you've also been accusing Senator Warren of not being straight with the people because she won't acknowledge that middle class taxes will go up while at the same time we should point out obviously really there would be no insurance premiums and no out of pocket expenses under this and so her argument is costs will go down but she doesn't use the word taxes going up take a listen to this exchange you and I had during the second democratic debate you are willing to raise taxes on middle class Americans in order to have universal coverage with the disappearance of insurance premiums yes or no I think you can buy into it that's the idea of Medicare for all who want look this is a distinction without a difference whether you the same money in the form of taxes premiums this is a distinction without a difference whether you're paying the same money in the form of taxes or prima isn't that the same argument that Elizabeth Warren is making first of all willing to say it out loud and secondly the problem isn't just how she talks about it the problem is the multi trillion dollar hole in other words even if you accept what she said taxes go up premiums go down you come out ahead fine they're still a multi trillion dollar hole in this plan that's the problem added to the fact that if you like a private plan her vision will kick you off of it in four years or less and we don't have to do this look what I'm proposing amounts to the boldest healthcare reform more than fifty years this is the biggest thing we will have done to American healthcare since Medicare itself was invented and it has the advantage of preserving Americans freedom to choose what had happened it would be bold but it wouldn't be bolder than Medicare for all because Medicare for all obviously would re-jigger the entire healthcare system that's just the point here we are offering things that are the boldest action on a given issue area like healthcare in my lifetime only to have some folks say that's not good enough unless you go even further and these purity tests I think on the risk of derailing us from a historic opportunity to gather an American majority around historic reforms. We can do this we should do this and by the way it's the best policy because if Medicare for all single payer environment is the right destination which I think it very well may be then the best way to get there is to give everybody the choice if the public plan is the best one everybody will eventually choose it and if it's not going to be really glad we didn't force people onto it we're running out of time so I do want to flip to a different topic which is is the last Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton appeared to suggest that one of your fellow campaign nominees campaign foles congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian asset take a listen to Hillary Clinton on David Bluffs podcast I'm not making any predictions but I think they've got their got somebody who's currently in the Democratic primary and our grooming her to beat the third party candidate she's the favorite of the Russians they have a bunch of sites and bots and other our ways of supporting our so far and that's assuming Jill Stein will give it up which she might not because she's also a Russian so the Clinton's spokesman confirms that she was talking about Tulsi Gabbard there Gabbard fired back calling Secretary Clinton the Queen of warmongers embodiment of corruption went on from there I don't want to get into the middle of these two politicians fighting but is it helpful to have the two thousand sixteen nominee suggesting that a congresswoman is a Russian asset I'd prefer to have the conversation be about policy about what we're GONNA do and about how American lives are going to be different when it comes to any democratic competitor's that's my focus making sure that we make very clear the differences and they are very real differences among us and making a clear to voters what around what I consider her to be a competitor somebody who I respect her service also have very different views than than she does especially on foreign policy and I would prefer to have that argument in terms of policy which is what we do at debates and what we're doing as we go forward so when Donald trump smears people democrats all stand up and say you're smearing someone stop it why don't grants do that to say that about Tulsi Gabbard it seems like an obvious smear I don't see any evidence is Russian assets seems like a wild accusation think statements like that ought to be backed by evidence I also think that our focus right now needs to be on the things that are actually undermining America I mean right now we are being told to quote get over it when it comes to the mixing of domestic politics and foreign affairs and the big issue today is not even whether this has happened it's clear that it's happening even Republicans are being forced to admit that it's happening the question is will we or will we not actually get over it it's a problem with corruption is it happen it can happen anywhere the places where takes root are the places where people accept it and the biggest question before the American people right now is will we or will we not get over it that problem is all those Senate Democrats who are running for president they're all calendar might be starting to look quite full we're GONNA ask one candidate how the impeachment inquiry could affect the final stretch of her primary campaign that's an accident with us remember to create an ad like this one visit pure winning dot com splash CNN state of the Union Jake Tapper the race for the twenty twenty Democratic nomination is entering a new phase with the candidates airing sharper Asians over the future of the party as we move closer to the first votes being cast that was never more apparent than it last week CNN presidential debate where the more moderate contenders joining us we appreciate it I I have kind of technical question for you senator Senate Majority Leader McConnell says the Senate December that's right when the winds will be doing the important job of trying to choose the Democratic presidential nominee is more important for you to be listening to the evidence on the.

They could be it's did in stone that these states have to be conservative factors very deep progressive tradition in the industrial midwest. Okay. But you know, they used to ask this question after nine eleven why do they hate us? But I I want to ask it about Republicans in their attitudes. Democrats. Yeah. Why do they hate us? Well, why is the D so toxic that we oughta medically right off twenty five states. Well, first of all, we gotta look at media diet, right? I mean, not only the Twitter verse. But if you're on a diet of Fox News and some of this conservative radio, you may literally never even hear our perspective. And I think there's an echo chamber twenty gotta go on FOX. Yeah. Which? I was really surprised to discover the first out of the candidates to go on on Fox News Sunday. But if I didn't a lot of us would have never heard what I say. So I think we gotta penetrate there. I also think sometimes there's a sense of condescension coming from our party fairly or unfairly. I think a lot of people perceive we're looking down on them. And if we allow that content to continue it's going to be a real problem if wealthy coastal liberal professional goes up to two guy pumping gas in south bend. Maybe maybe wearing a one of those red hats and said, you know, you're voting against your economic interests. Like, I was going to say it's going to say, so we're you or the or visas you white privilege. Well, that's that rubs people the wrong. I look white privilege is real and we about these. But we can't paint people into a corner where they have nowhere to go. But the far right that that's how radicalization works when you invite them onto the right side of history. Not by. I mean, don't get me wrong. We're going to give no. Order to things like white nationalism that helped animate this presidency in this campaign. But I also think we have an obligation to be speaking to things like the loss in a sense of belonging. I mean, exactly the kind of thing that opens people up to radicalization, whether it's here at home or in places like the Middle East Brexit. Yeah. Exactly. And you know, this the same desire for belonging that might motivate.
