"Live all their home. They damage all their homes in the hamadeh. All cars even have to come off in something daily routine even the fence of my brother. His daughter and his son is on the way into debut on you. Swipe that so far he tells me he still heard nothing about his own family today. Yoga's government owned telecoms company announced communications. Were opening backup in parts of cry. The world i'm halima condie in addis ababa diplomats. Get into it. Sometimes in other words on occasion they can be pretty undiplomatic. That's exactly what appears to have happened in a recent nato meeting secretary of state. Mike pompeo reportedly accused turkey of causing up to russia. While turkey's foreign minister pointed the finger at pompeo for ganging up on the turks to talk through what this diplomatic was all about. We turn to steven cook. Cook is a senior fellow for middle east and africa the council on foreign relations. He's also an expert on turkish politics. Steven this was a meeting with pompeii on foreign ministers from us allies in nato. What were they meeting to talk about. Well this was a routine nato ministerial to discuss issues before the alliance is also comes at a time. When major report that was commissioned by the french to chart the way forward for nato over the course of the next decade or more but it was notable that pompeo really went. After the turks this was pompeo's last nato ministerial so he clearly took the opportunity to take some parting shots at entre right so this is probably pompeii last. Big meeting as secretary of state. What do you think he was trying to accomplish by confronting turkey. Well i throw. Turkey has been pursuing a foreign policy that runs contrary to nato. It is not an exaggeration to suggest that have cozied up to the russians. They bought a major air defense system from the russians. They've worked with the russians in places like syria and nagorno-karabakh they've also pursued a rather aggressive posture in the eastern mediterranean that has threatened. Nato allies like greece. So he's not entirely wrong on that issue but we also have to keep in mind. That secretary pump does have political ambitions. So you mentioned that new nato report what will the next ten years of nato look like. And what is turkey's role. Turkey will remain within the alliance so long as the turks want to remain every now and again bubbles up to turkey should be thrown out of nato. But there's no mechanism to remove a an alliance number. They have to decide to leave. They alive but the serious questions about the unity of nato and what its purpose is going. There are all kinds of questions and then of course there are these tensions within the alliance. The united states is obviously been the leader of this alliance it over the course of the last four years. President trump really has not undertaken the care and feeding of the to give much direction so nato is at best at a turning point at worst unstable. What does the future of nato look like with the new biden administration. Well it's clear from president-elect biden's statements that he sees america being back and that he wants to reestablish america's traditional role as the leader of the alliance and inject some life into it. You have to give president. Trump's some credit the pressure that he's put on nato allies has led to an increase in their defense spending but at the same time his attacks on the alliance have weakened it just as we see a resurgent russia so it seems that president biden will want to rejuvenate the alliance and directed towards the efforts on the part of the russians to weaken europe weaken the align so questions within the alliance about western unity and undertake aggressive actions. On the alliance's periphery whether it be syria or in north africa and stephen given that Mike pompeo has seemed to further muddy. The waters with turkey at this nato meeting. What does it confrontation like this. One at the meeting due to the incoming biden administration like how will turkey and repti- berto on view the new white house with this as a trump parting shot. There is debate in washington rather robust debate about what to do about turkey. I think everybody recognizes that turkey's foreign policy particularly over. The course of the last few years has been problematic for the united states. It has complicated the fight against the islamic state. It has increased tensions in eastern mediterranean. There's tensions between turkey and other strategic partners of the united states including israel the united arab emirates and saudi arabia. So turkey is a real problem in. There is debate over whether to punish turkey for this aggressive action or whether to do things to try to salvage and save the relationship and set it on a new path that is going to occupy sometime. Time of biden's national security team president-elect biden is not known to have the kind of warm personal relationship with president aired one that president trump did or that. President obama did in his first few years in office. So certainly turkey is going to be one of those foreign policy challenges for the new administration.

"Talking that much about the the the bar hearing from yesterday. I just seems like such a tiny percent percentage of the population. That's into that whole thing based on all the polls. Yeah. I mean, people just aren't that into it right is a tiny group of people that are really into it. And I guess they're playing to that crowd. But. We we haven't covered it that much. No, no. And I watched it, and I listened to it. And it was it was my lean twisting if you're into that sort of thing but in terms of its significance. I mean, everybody is exaggerating the significance of everything they say all the time in ho settings now. And I just I don't know I'm tired of it. This is from the New York Times about San Francisco and how they're handling school. So this is a by coastal version of the story. The New York Times reporting on San Francisco for decades, the education mantra from presidential campaign trails to local school board. Elections has been the same your zip code should not determine the quality of your school. Well, few cities have gone further and trying to make that idea a reality in San Francisco, and this is one of your many stories we like we're big fans of this genre of story. The the price of good intentions unintended consequences almost always because the the action that's intended to right? The wrongs or whatever is involves taking money from people by the government and throwing it at the problem, and it's generally poorly done. San Francisco allows parents to apply to any school in the district having done away with the traditional schools zoning eighteen years ago in an effort to desegregate its classrooms. That's not the way. Will you know, this doesn't work this way? Most places the the section of whatever city or town, or wherever you live in determines what school you go to they did away with our current system is broken said, Steven cook, president of the district board of education things are actually worse. We inadvertently made schools more segregated so in their attempts to make schools less segregated. They ended up with schools more segregated while. I think that's a pretty good definition of successful where we want to a bit of a whoop CDs. Yes. Well, or in the parlor to the Armstrong and Getty show. Affluent parents are able to take advantage of the system in the way in ways that low income parents cannot or they opt out of public schools all together. What happened in San Francisco suggests without remedies like wide-scale busing were school zones drawn deliberately to integrate school desegregation will remain out of reach after families submit their kindergarten applications ranking as many school choices they like across the city a computer algorithm makes assignments. But overall, many parents and city leaders considered a disappointment the district schools were more racially segregated in two thousand fifteen than they were in nineteen ninety even though the city's neighborhoods have become more integrated that pattern holds true in many of the nation's largest cities. The district is one of the most diverse in the nation. Thirty five percent of the students are. We suppose it's going to say here after turn the page Asian to while. That's something thirty five percent. Asian twenty seven percent Spanich fifteen percent white seven percent African American but over the past several decades, white Asian Hispanic students on average have been clustered in schools of more children of their own races. Okay. Yeah. All right. I don't know. This is this is why the whole in. No, grievance culture intersection -ality thing, it's so tiresome. So you got now minority white students and plurality Asians. And for some reason, we threw Hispanic students in there with them in that group, Tila, straight, the the segregation. So, but is this is this what happened like I've been saying this for years, and I think it's true this this doesn't get addressed enough. When people say, they want more diversity. They will almost always mean they want more people who look like them. It's just not that common that people actually want to be around other people of other LEGO out of their way to be around people of other races. That's just not the way we're built, and there's lots of examples of that happening in in places. They're affluent black neighborhoods in some areas of the country were black people live there, and they're not forced to live there. They choose that neighbor because they wanna live around other black people and they all catch on. Oh, hey, that's a nice black had some more black people booth there because it's just it's just you know, it's like it's like colleges. So you got all these college students you have there's some tendency for certain races to group together at the lunch table. Just wait is nobody likes to talk about the science the indisputable sciences shows infants prefer faces of their own race because these racist babies are racist racist. Little clan. Lazy and racist job racist, baby. We'll birds of a feather flock together, it's an ancient saying in various forms, and in no way does that to justify any sort of discrimination or hate or cruelty. You're not giving people their constitutional rights or anything. Idiotic like that. It just is. You got to be careful. You know, how far you go in a cheering? What you see as a better world in the face of what people seem to like curious to know, what their definition of a successful integration of the school district would look like. And even percentage of light, right? Like to match each school should be exactly with the population. Is those percentages as I just gave you is that the only possible outcome of in their mind a healthy school system. I don't know the kids be happier. And what they learn more. But how about my premise of when people say they want diversity. They generally mean, they more more people of their own race. I how often in a black neighborhood. Do you think do do people say there are too many black people here? We've really want more white pow how often do Asian people say, you know, what I just think there are too many Asian people miss this neighborhood, we need more black people and more Hispanics. Does that happen? Very often. I don't think it actually happens very often. No here in a neighborhood where you wish there were more people of your race. And then you call that diversity. Yeah. Yeah. I'm not anti the concept of diversity in various things. Either religious fanatic about it though. Realistic that when people say that they usually want more people of their own race now. So so you have integrated neighborhoods you open it up to where you can go to any school you want to and then people segregated themselves more. That's what happened here now in effect, and you know, cheek-by-jowl with that story is another one that happens to be from Cal unicorn Lia, and this actually I hate to take a dark, but it relates really closely to the parkland high school shooting of was it a year ago two years ago. I don't know time flies when you get old hand to any shootings. Right. Exactly absolutely horrific, but that's this trend in discipline in education. That's called the positive behavior interventions in support system. Where you don't punish people in the traditional way. There aren't specific disincentives for acting up or disrupting the classroom or open defiance or whatever you're placed in intervention programs counseling alternative programs etcetera etcetera, and they had a school district in visalia, California, where they just had a raucous school district meeting in which every single teacher, except one said, this is a miserable failure this doesn't work. I can't control my classroom. The word chaos came up over and over again. And this feel-good philosophy is sweeping the nation. The Obama administration was big on it and the whole parkland thing was all about they were trying to make their numbers. Look good to have federal funding in making your numbers. Look good means not punishing people. So another unintended consequence. It's wishful thinking discipline because. Ause the discipline fell more heavily on students of color, and so they thought well, you know, in in the, you know, the theoretical framework of our time that's proof that the problem is not the people or the culture or traditions, or.

"Murals that show ugly parts of history have a place in public schools. And what does it say about our relationship to art? If we remove the mural, and we're gonna go to more of our calls. I want to remind you spoke earlier with Steven cook, president of the San Francisco board of education and now with us here in studio will minus who is steward of the DA. Go Rivera mural project with City College of San Francisco and Paloma Flora's who was program coordinator of the Indian education program at the San Francisco unified school district office of access and equity some comments coming in actually suggestions from listeners Karen rice, perhaps a plaque pudding the art. And it's historical context and explaining its significance would help or perhaps there are other walls in the school that could use a new mural, and Joseph writes, this reminds me of the removal of old war statues, which I'm all for almost the same argument. What about painting a new mural in response to the old mural and keeping both? Well, I think Paloma floors. He just would like to see it gone, right? I would like to see it for moved for what it's doing to children young and old. Imagery matters. It has devastating consequences. The native community across this nation has the largest youth suicide rate as a result of this type of negative imagery. The lived experience that they hold on their shoulders day in day old is a direct result of these glorifying images, presented from colonizers view when you walk those halls. And their life size bigger than life. This life of Washington. You see what the most alarming is to see a dead Indian face down with someone pointing west in the spirit of manifest destiny. A dead Indian that reinforces US policy to kill the Indian and save the man how what about the suggestion that you can put a plaque that explains. The context. A complete. Change in our curriculum is needed. What's taught in our books. What's taught in our classrooms? How we uplift in support our teachers through professional development art has a place. It should be an art museum with a plaque to remove it entirely and put more positive reaffirming imagery of native peoples in African American peoples not in this romanticized version that supports a racer, but something that any child. Any background could feel good about seeing? That is true change the removal is necessary. We've watched the change across the United States in removing negative statues. As you alluded to most recent in our city of San Francisco, we removed the statue of the pioneers that sits right in front of the city hall. We'll get a response from will on all this. Can you talk about the working group process was at a tough debate or was wide agreement on because you were part of that? Right. Correct. It was necessary to hear respectfully multiple perspectives. It was very heated at times. There were lots of emotion because this is not just a painting. This is lives being lived in affected four meetings and the consensus and the recommendations that move forward was to remove it. Yes. But to also look at archiving, it it has its place. I personally not speaking from my role, but personally as a California Indian woman one hundred and seventy years removed from the change not five hundred not four hundred not three hundred not two hundred but one hundred and seventy three grandmothers since contact could tell you that these spaces spaces of learning spaces that hold children should reflect positive for all there's a place in time to teach in the books. Well, let me go to wilderness will the argument seems. To be that imagery matters. I think Paloma said that a couple of times and has consequences, and you say what what the I I I'm I might take exception with art only belongs museums artists something that I live in the mission. There's mission murals everywhere. It's a living part of the mission, though, they're being orphaned because of gentrification the precedent that set by arbitrarily deciding what you can see what you can't see is the thing I worry about especially for the kids down the road. If they grow up in a climate where okay, I can't see anything if not nice. Well, it kind of gives them an awkward idea. What reality is. And in this case Arnott off was taking a leap because it wasn't a national dialogue at the time. So he took a leap out there to represent what? The country had done to the indigenous people and to the the slaves they brought in. And I think it's an integral part of the education next week. I've got third graders coming to see the gig Rivera mural. It has some disturbing images of dead children and their mothers. And so it has to be contextualised. But to say, well, we're gonna protect the kids by not showing them something. That's you think there's a slippery slope here centuries saying, very slippery. And you think kids don't necessarily need to be protected from Woodward characteristics dehumanizing images. Why you bring in the context you explain to them. It becomes a teaching moment. This is what we are like back in linking thirty six. This guy. Made a leap an artist was in the vanguard of outing the country for the inequities that had perpetrated on its people and long before dialogue, which is going on. Now, the contemporary dialogue is pretty short lived the Paloma floors. You're saying that was then this is now in the concern has to be with now. Yeah. Needs to be now in twenty nineteen. How are we still looking at this type of imagery in a progressive city such as San Francisco when just north of us in Lake County and Kelsey Ville in two thousand six students advocated at a board meeting to have the removal of their mascot, then the Indians change to the nights in a small rural town in California such as Kelsey Ville named after an Indian killer. They are progressive in that movement. It was heard by many alumni who were there to share in the same way of Washington high this need to hold on. To hold on. And yet a five to zero vote to change that mascot was made. If Kelsey Ville could identify it make right something such as a mascot of the Indians in town that was named from an Indian killer. It. Why can't we here in this beautiful city by the bay in San Francisco that is progressive make the same change? Respectfully, anybody's thought about taking a canvas of the students and having them vote on this be interesting to see how that would come out. Anyway, just thought here's a tweet listener tweets ultimately school is something that should inspire pride in his community and not guilt. Shame humiliation and anger. The history is important, but the venue is wrong. David rights can nothing uncomfortable. Be showing our exist in the students world our future voters need to see the real world know the real past. They need to be able to work through their gut reaction to things and have a follow on dialogue to form their fiber below me one respond to that. Again, it has its place. But if we teach the truth coming into kindergarten through twelfth grade here in California. During our fourth grade mission time when you learn about the missions here in California. You make an active move to reform the curriculum and tell the truth. The children deserve it. I don't disagree that. They should be taught the history not at all. It's vital all children. Not just those most impacted every single child who will be a future leader in this country needs to know the truth. Otherwise, keep it in the classroom. Keep it in the curriculum. You're saying it doesn't have to be out there in the halls where they can see what about that argument will minus. Well, there's the WPA created murals all over the country. It's a it's a national treasure. The they created the park space. There's there's it's a legacy that's been passed down to us. And and like, I said, there's contemporary examples right now were didactic panels. There's all kinds of way of explaining what the images are. And as a way of educating because if you take the the murals down while now now, you don't know a lot of the students will know that indigenous people died like I talked about the Choctaw in the trailer, tears or the trail tears. The argument goes is in a museum, and we're talking about a school. Well, but the the students get taken to the museum, and and so it's not like the defacto seeing the images is bad. It's it's the fact that it's in the school. We get back to your point about a slippery slope with a comment from a listening. Silly hereto, George Washington owned slaves. He'll all things named after him including the school. Get new names. I think supervisor Haney has pretty much said that indeed should be the case another listener rights as former staff at Washington, I can say that there are lessons every year on the mural. There are also response Muros in an adjacent hallway depicting the leaders and struggles of Washington's communities of color. Let me go to more of our, callers, and we go next to you. Nikki you're on the air. Thank you for taking my call. I was a student at George Washington high school in the sixties when this conversation first arose and the answer to one of the answers to this issue was to paint. Murals, you just reference that disturbs me the most is that one the WPA murals are part of my own personal historical family generational history. I went to school with the art in the toss granddaughter, the WPA mural were seen as incredibly progressive their history of some of the big pink it over and other places because community slash society. Did not like what it was being seeing. And I think part of the conversation that disturbs me is that we engage in an either or approach one or the other. It's not both amd in both of the conversations that are important. And Lastly, I think the thing that really disturbs me is there's a certain amount of censorship. That's going on here. What art should we see? What should we not see since you've raised your ship? Nikki I'm going to go to Paloma Flora's on that. This is censorship of public art in many people's minds, and that's not necessarily a good thing Paloma floors. You wanna come in? Censorship is not telling the truth again. We shouldn't be having this conversation. We should respect. What happens? When these images are everywhere. They're everywhere. And for our children to see this internalize it create self hatred within themselves. And ask themselves. Why am I participated in a space that was never designed for us? Remember, the educational system was an experiment used to take from within. And leave the man I remember when Marlon Brando said in front of the whole kademi of motion pictures, this is wrong. The way native Americans are portrayed. Something has to be done about it. And something was done about a different Kevin Costner made a whole different film and others made different films. I mean, we have said we have progressed we've moved forward in so many ways, and we can be thankful that which you're saying is this takes us backward. I think isn't it. Does it continues to? Support that narrative of a racer of you're no longer here. Even if you paint something that shows contributions of the people, you still have the end.

So I mean, LeBron James pick and choose spots where he was going to give max effort, but I think it was a solid outing overall form in his first game back after five weeks of triple double outstanding shot was not on. I think he made one shot outside of eight feet. And it was a critical one in overtime a really tough turn around fadeaway, but he made a three pointers. Well, he made the one three in the one shot outside eight feet his shot was not on. And you could tell his wind wasn't totally with. And this was a good example of the only way to be ready to play an NBA basketball game. There's a shot. I was talking about the only way to be ready to play an NBA game is to play an NBA game. No matter what great shape you.
