"Is just simply one of the best baseball writers in the world, and it's a pleasure to have him. Also, Of course, we watch him on TV all the time. And it's just a pleasure to have Tim on to talk baseball, especially when it's the World Series in this crazy year that Covert 19 shutdown spring training labor unrest through the whole thing in doubt in the summer, and then we played 60 games with seven innings and runners on second, and it all winds up in Arlington, Texas, with the Tampa Bay Rays and the Dodgers. So, Tim out of all that weirdness. We have a pretty darn good matchup. Good morning. Welcome back to the morphine, Max. How you doing, Tim? I'm well, fellas. And yes, we have a great match up. We have the two best teams going up against each other, which is how it's supposed to be. And the games have been awfully good so far to Elsie Esses or really good and I have no reason to think the world. Siri's won't be great because it will And just kind of top quick one. There will be fans at this right. Yeah, but yes, And it's going to be similar to the last time. There's not going to be 50,000 people in there. But yes, span will be in there, so we'll give some semblance of a crowd. Which is good, but I think we've all kind of gotten used to, even though it's not a good thing to get used to not having fans in the stands, but Having anyone there is better than having no one there. Yeah, And obviously there were a lot of Dodger fans in Texas during the NLCS, which, as Giants flagship disturbed us a little bit, but Tim a little bit on the ballpark before we get into the match up here. You know, the word was that that place in this rare in this home run era and quote unquote juiced balls if you believe it or not launch angle and swing for the fences. That Globe life Park. The Rangers home part was not a bandbox. And does that play a role at all in this? I mean, the Dodgers did scrape the Siri's out in seven, but they weren't really able to homer their way around. Kind of like the Eights and the Astro state. A Dodger Stadium is that is that a factor at all? I think it is. I think we expected more home runs, but we got plenty. Even the Dodgers hit 16 in that series. No one's ever hit more home runs in any single postseason series. And the Dodgers just did they tied a record and their power is ridiculous. I mean, they had 118 homers in 60 game. The one other team has ever done that through the 1st 60 games and keep in mind. The 88 Dodgers won the World Series. They had 99 homers the hole here. And this team had 118 in 60 games, so I think the ball will jump pretty pretty well, but not not great, and it should be fun to watch. It's just odd, though, that you know, the Rays have never played a game in that ballpark. And they've only been 30 Major League games played in that ballpark, and now it's hosting the world serious, so there are a lot of things element in play here, and I would be uncomfortable if I were a member of the Rays, and I never played a game in a ballpark. You know exactly what the angles they're going to be like what the lighting is going to be like, And that's why they're there yesterday, trying to figure all this out, but it's a tricky proposition. When you never played in a certain ballpark, you were talking

Some people repeat a mantra to calm themselves down while others talked with therapist or take anger management classes. Whatever the method managing your anger is more important than you realize because when something makes us angry and. We don't deal with it. It can manifest and lead us to taking out our anger on other people that have nothing to do with what made us angry in the first place. In psychology this is known as displacement.

Though they technically had a mandate to begin investigation immediately, the Japanese government delayed their archaeological survey by over five years in order to allow a housing development to finish. When they finally did begin to dig, they found skulls with drill holes and damaged bones. The results of the survey are controversial and the investigators themselves ruled at the remains were not connected to unit seven, three one or any other criminal activity.

Some of our most popular episodes are when we bring on people who own restaurants or who are chefs and my guest today. Is kind of a combination. She's not a chef. She's married to a chef. This is Susan g young park, and she and her husband are the owners of a very unusual Taco place near the campus is called. I think I'm saying this right Revolucionario? Is that correct? Yes, it's a revolutionary on North African Tacos on. At one, four, three, six, West Jefferson, boulevard currently were only open on weekends, Saturdays, and Sundays for pick up orders only from noon till three, and actually I am a chef to learn more. Oh okay. Okay. Yeah. Well, you know, I definitely want to do a deep dive. Into, your establishment. But you know since we're recording this in early May and is still during the whole shutdown, and this is a restaurant I gotta ask you because we'll put this out relatively soon. This episode I have to ask you like, how has it been for you guys with the shutdown with the limited time that you're open. How's that going? It's been very, very asymmetric call. Because I also have. Started a nonprofit at the end of February and a lot of people keep asking me how I knew to start early with the Asian. American. Specific food. Bank. It's because I am an Asian American person. Who? WHO also owns also Asian American <hes>. owner. And I. My restaurant is near USC SO I. Get to talk to a lot of. Asian, American, and Asian international students. So my restaurant very community driven. So. As an Asian American person business owner and somebody who speaks to Asian American students in Asian international students on a regular basis. You know I could feel the of sacks of you know, the the Wuhan Virus China virus. Right one international news broke in <hes> in December, and I can feel it affecting my business to I can feel it affecting my business, my in store business just tanked. I made it by with a lot of lot of catering more because they kept asking my customers <unk>, helped me out catering orders than. And then <hes> a lot of a Chinese American students in particular in Chinese. International. Students <hes> who come to my restaurant. Started telling me. They just felt really anxious and they had a feeling of like just more isolated, and also I also do a lot of tenants <hes> advocacy work I've been in touch with CCD in. Chinatown. MOM since last year I helped him out occasionally with things at the request as I could see for myself, I mean. Koreatown didn't get hit that bad. Early, a chinatown business in Chinatown just tanked. You know at in December and January some restaurants. It was like ninety nine percent down the streets were empty. There's nobody. And then my friends from the San Gabriel Valley started reporting. The business was down in the San Gabriel Valley. And then it rolled into Korea town. So Koreatown was hit a little bit later. By declining sales and then <hes> in my restaurant to. So January usually means like a huge surge in business. And a lot of my customers are <hes> international students, not as Asian international students, but international students because my husband is also he's a French born Algerian Berber and Berbers indigent people to North Africa. So we also have a lot of European customers in African customers, and because we're North African Taco restaurant, we also have a lot of Mexican Latin next customers so very international. We hear a lot of news from everybody to because we're, I'm a owner operators on that restaurant every day that it's open. So I'm in touch with just. So many different communities. And just business was just was not picking up and beginning in January I started. Reducing, my restaurant hours drastically because it just wasn't worth it. It just wasn't worth it to old. You know just to get all that going and it was like this is not what any you know <hes>. So then I started my food bank initiative I started I started my bag initiative before a stylish on nonprofit. Net Song early I. Think I met her Nebi. Rarity. A month after I had started my <hes> brown bags for all skid row initiative. Because <hes> wins, virus news broke of a mysterious virus mysterious <hes>. You know that's a scare <unk> scare tactic. In China and it's highly infectious in know we live in a global village? and. Experts have been warning about pandemics for a long time and America wouldn't be prepared for one. So my first thought in January was to start my Brown Dad's for everyone initiative for skid row because in an era of pandemic, who do you want to help the most? I, I mean, who should you be healthy? It's the most vulnerable people were most exposed. Then it's going to be homeless in the House to people. And who are the poorest of the poor, the an housed I mean, it's the black residents. Elderly residents are skip Vo. So I, the Brown. Doctrines, <unk> round that for everyone initiative really took off fast because the idea was catchy. People could wrap their mind around like Paquito, Brown bag lunch. You know. So I, had neighborhood associations like four hundred members hanging. Why? Why can't all of us do like ten Brown bags? That's four thousand bomb. Gad's already

"Of the sky and I still kinda generally pointed. Why could see the comet through my vernacular? And I just started taking pictures now the problem is. The. Lens that was wider it requires my camera body to have this little plate that Clemson to the TRIPOD, and my longer lands, which I was primarily playing. It has its own clamp. Plate that clamps onto the Tripod. So stupid me. I didn't have that plate, and so I had to hand, hold bracing, Cameron, my hand on the on the top part of the Tripod on. Three or four second exposures now. Lo and behold, some of them actually turned out and pretty sharp and. I just kind of lucked into actually having some pictures of the comment. is so weird I mean I'm looking through the viewfinder in I just don't I just see black. This I don't even see stars, and then I kind of start to capture some so. As. We're driving home. You know my wife and I were talking and. I said. You know some of our friends. That we texts quite often rec- on facebook. What have you? Like, they're not even. Going to try to see this comet. Although go out on A. Driveway and look up in the schedule just two inch light pollution and it's like. You have you realize notice that some people are really into kind of? Putting effort to seen eclipse or You know to to go see a red tide, or whatever, and then there's a whole bunch of people that they just have no interest at all. And my wife said Yeah Yeah I. Think my parents like that and I said you know. My parents were like that, too. And then thinking about my surviving siblings, I think one of my brothers if it wasn't too much. Too much of an effort, he would probably. Go and try to see your experience something. But my other brother, I mean it could be literally. Just look cut your window like just turn your head. And there's a good chance he won't even do that. So so I, don't know if my wife and I are kind of in the minority. Or the average You know there seemed to be a lot of people on this road. checking it out. I I know that my wife was super stoked. that this is kind of one way to mark or thirty nine years of being married is to see this very rare comet. But as we got home and I was working on the pictures and making. At least the few that turned out. You know better with my software. You. Know there's voice that I was trying to suppress in the back of my head. It's like you know it's GonNa be Kinda great all week. You can go back on Monday. Right you can go back and maybe bring your cannon gear. which is your pro gear? That's better in low light, you shooting concerts and that kind of stuff. In it's. And it's like no, you're not going to be happy. You're not gonna be happy unless you actually go back and shoot this again. Then you have other ideas now you can bring different lenses. And, so I made up my mind like I know i. went the the the night before but I'm going again tonight. and. My wife if she was so excited. Before. And You know she didn't WanNa. Kind of rain on my parade, but basically he said you know I I've seen that comment before like last night. Don Good. Gay Have Good Tech. So off I went on my own after dinner and Rather than a drive up as as high as I did, the previous night. I had in mind this time to to try to take some pictures of the comet with some something interesting in the foreground, no, and so as I was driving up and I use this APP and I know exactly where that comets can appear what goes down. Like, there was big parking lot, and then the highway that we run across. There was his deep in a valley, and then there's his ridge line of mountains, and it's just like Oh man. That's that's the place I'm looking for, so I was I was there early. Set up across. From the parking lot, so that I wouldn't have any light pollution from the car, highlight headlights, driving back and forth, and this I'm actually brought one of those collapsible tear Rei on sitting there, just enjoying myself waiting for the sun to go down seeing all people come up after me and just gloating like yeah good spot. And then my inner thigh started burning like crazy and I'm like what the heck rate. And? There's still enough sunlight I looked down and I put my hair on top of a nest of residents and these are about. At least quarter, inch or more bigger. And apparently some had called up my legs unbeknownst to me and had started to attack me because I was sitting on their house, so I made executive decision. Not Consult anyone else. And packed up all my stuff that I had set up. Wait for the to quit screaming by and set up on the parking lot side. and. Proceeded to wait for the Senate Kodama this time. I knew exactly where to look and. I'm GonNa Tell You I. Am so glad I went that second time because the pictures that I got a mess with them on light room in light room, but I'll share some of the first night, and then tonight's on our facebook page, but Yeah, it is just like..

"Phrase that people use. It's the war on the car what we're talking about taking away. Parking spaces were saying. Stop forcing people to provide them. The stop force-feeding the city with parking. Say If if you had a requirement that everybody had to eat ten hamburgers a month and Everybody did it and somebody said well. We're going to remove moves his hamburger requirement Because it's unhealthy. They say it's a war on hamburgers but removing apart a requirement is not a war on cars the parking requirements war four cars even if people have a car and they need somewhere to put it and they worry that there won't be the space there to put it in if we charge the the right price for parking spaces everywhere they go. The can't say there's no spaces to put them in if they see empty spaces everywhere and just they won't be free now not to say that. Well yes we take free park. That's out the same way the same thing as taking away park. I'm not even talking about taking away party although the Montreal has I think one of the best policies that doesn't seem to have been copied that they're downtown they had a lot of surface parking. Lots and This this doesn't add to downtown. Nobody wants to walk by parking. Lot and It's spreads things. I'll there's nothing to see. See your by or do in a parking lot so montreal put on a tax on surface. Parking lots now. It's about eight hundred dollars per space per year and it may be the difference between saying parking was the most profitable use for this landed. Reduced the value of using it for parking and almost all of the the Parking lots disappeared and CONDOS and office. Buildings were built now. A parking lot doesn't employ many people at it doesn't pay much taxes taxes But if you have office. Buildings and housing employs a lot of people and pays a lot of taxes. So I think the idea of switching from parking requirements to in some cases parking taxes add Of the Montreal sort is a good idea and it sounds like a war on cars. And maybe maybe it is but Israeli Warren Park because anybody can have a car but they just have to pay for parking to your point. The money helps also to pay for other things. He's but could deal with issues of if you have more spate more density that can be implemented. You could deal with issues of affordability you could deal with issues. A perhaps a housing crisis it would have because you have more places for people not to park but to live exactly I think it would be. I mean. Can you imagine what Paris uh-huh London would look like if they had been built off street parking requirements in cities like ours yours There have been changes when when it comes to how people get around and it might not be in their own car but they may be using services like Uber and lift Roger Services. How does that change the story when it comes to what cities need when it comes to parking? What makes a big difference The Uber Lift How more data about travel than any transportation engineer would they know that the highest demand for their services are places is where the park is expensive or hard defied? So I've been over and left or not in favor of minimum parking requirements because it sort of takes away from what they they have to sell the ad now dow older electric scooters electric bicycles a lot of our transit systems at least in the US are under under occupied That I think of the United States the average occupancy of a forty seat bosses only ten people. The main point that I've been making about about changing the world A- by removing off three parking requirements. Is it nothing would change tomorrow or even next year it would take quite a while for anything to happen happen it. You're not taking away. Argh you're taking away the requirement for parking so it would allow infill development to happen on small. Lots where you really now. Al Can't get a building and all the required parking on the site and therefore sort of condemned being a parking lot so I think he slowly very slowly the world would more towards a less car oriented society. Are you surprised at how much people will pay for a parking spot. There was a story here in Toronto were an underground spot downtown. We'll sold for something like eighty five thousand dollars. You hear these wild stories out of New York City. People pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for parking spot. Does that surprise. You know but what it does tell because they're very expensive to provide at if you don't force buildings to provide hi them an older areas that these spaces are rare. The some very rich people live there but so I think it does show that this land the city owns is very valuable in the city is squandering that land to offer free parking even while it's saying that we're doing our utmost to reduce carbon emissions. y'All were so committed to producing carbon. Mrs Except for what we do with parking even talking about this for a long time Over the course of of decades. What was it that hooked you you know? How did you get religion and talking about parking back in the seventies well? It was an issue of of equity. I th well things. We haven't talked about his employer paid parker the United States and I suspect in Canada many the US most people who drive to work part free at WOR I. I looked at that what I was working on equity and transportation. I thought it's not fair to offer free pargeter drivers and nothing the thing to everybody else especially since the higher income employers are the ones who will cars and lower income employee's California car. I just outrageous. But you can't get anywhere politically by saying charge for parking so I came up with this idea call. Parking cash-out is now along California. That if you rent parking spaces to offer for free to your employees you have to offer the employees the option to take the cash value instead. You can't say I'll offer you free parking or nothing. That's very fair because it treats everybody equally became the law I studied about some of the effects were and especially law firms. Were the ones who understood that they had to obey the law. Aw One law firm. I interviewed they had given the reserves basis to the top lawyers and then Free Park in the lot. Others of the of the secretaries and the custodial got nothing but now they learned that they have to that law. We have to you have to offer the employees the value of the parking space. Hugh offer them and so they'd have to offer the top lawyers four hundred a month and the secretaries. Nothing 'cause they weren't offered free parking and they saw it got revealed that how unfair at Bosley switched to a monthly allowance of one hundred fifty dollars a month for everybody. So I think that getting parking right off would be making the world much fairer An employer paid parking but it does the rest of Parker because we have if we ought to be parking requirements. The cost departing. It doesn't go away at a grocery store or an apartment house even if you park area. The cost doesn't go away. Somebody has to pay it. That's somebody's everybody. I'm GonNa reap the people who were to own. A car is a city lot Los Angeles May maybe Toronto where everybody happily pays for Ed Eh. Everybody else's free. Parker is a fool's paradise and it's unjust paradise because people don't over car get nothing and everybody pays. Is People love free parking though. Do you have the sense that you've made much of a difference in getting people to think differently about again. The high cost of of Free Parking L.. I don't know I mean for. The book was published in two thousand five half the planning profession. I've is crazy and the other half saw his daydreaming and by I two thousand Nineteen San Francisco was charging market prices for parking added removed. All Its barker requirements. So I think as other cities See that this can happen. BASCO city has just moved from a minimum parking requirements to Maximum parking limits London they did the same thing and Mexico City. It came through very careful data collection. They found that about forty percent of all the new building in Mexico. City in the past ten years was for parking. You drive around a lot in Los Angeles. Now I I lived there campus so I always walked to good from campus and the traffic is so bad. Nobody wants to go anywhere CDO Eat. Find yourself cursing somebody at if they steal your parking spot. Well no no never somebody else. Being the spot isn't stealing it from me I suppose But other people. I'm sure that other other people would feel that way. That's why they get into fights over parking but I think those are unnecessary. I think if we spend the money in the right way so that people. Let's see it's like the parking meters like a cash register for them that they will say I see what you mean. It isn't because they want to reduce carbon emissions or vehicle traffic or anything anything like that. They have an individual benefit. That may some sable this is aligned with with my knees or my preferences So you know there are a lot of bad side box or Toronto. They could shovel the snow off more quickly for neighborhoods that have parking meters or even some places have electrical intrical heating underneath the side. One all that could be paid for by meter money and if the spaces are worth a hundred thousand dollars each they should be able to to finance some really great things for neighborhoods that could be the fix for parking Donald Shoup.

They decided that if Rosa lost the case the boycott would extend beyond her trial date indefinitely to organize organiz a longer bus boycott the group elected one of their most trusted team members to spearhead the movement a twenty six year old Baptist Reverend by the name of Dr Martin Luther King Junior together with the help of the N. double. ACP He formed the Montgomery Improvement Association. Their goal was to keep the boycott going until the status. Quo Changed that day forty two year old Rosa parks stepped into the stuffy halls of the Montgomery County courthouse. She was greeted by a bustling crowd of around around five hundred local supporters cheering her on her attorney was a man named Fred Gray and accomplished lawyer preacher and and activist who graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of law he was a go getter with a strong passion for civil rights in fact upon moving to Alabama.

ACP and the black community at large deemed at this verdict unacceptable Rosette should not be charged with breaking the law if that law was unethical in the first place and so the Montgomery bus boycott began it rained on the evening of December Fifth Nineteen fifty five but but even so the city buses were mostly empty forty thousand people walk through the rain to get home from work some as far as twenty twenty miles as Montgomery's black population made up about seventy percent of all bus customers. The boycott struck in early in devastating blow. The buses soon became something of a laughing stock public buses sat at the side of the road completely empty except for the drivers ars but the boycott also had an adverse effect on Rosa and her husband a week into the protest. Rosa was fired from her seamstress job he'd held for years. No reason was given about Rosa suspected. It was because of her involvement in the boycott the next week Raymond also lost his job after talking about the boycott at work but the setbacks only made the parks family all the more more resolute as weeks passed the city of Montgomery began to feel the financial impact of the boycott bus fares bears were a reliable source of income for any city and now with the boycott in full swing that revenue stream was drying up on January anuary thirtieth nineteen fifty six the fifty seventh day of the boycott. The home of Dr Martin Luther King was bombed to buy white radicals two days later Edgar.

She was arrested once again again for her role in the movement. Her supporters once again bailed her out but she knew that the fight wasn't over yet six months after the boycott began roses attorney. Fred Gray finally managed to gain an audience with the US District Court for the Middle District Straight Valla Bama in June nineteen fifty six fred argued that state bus segregation laws were unconstitutional and violated the rights of his community on June fifth nineteen fifty-six the three judges announced their ruling two to one in favor of Fred Gray. The fight still wasn't over the city of Montgomery filed an appeal that took the case to the United States Supreme Court on November Thirteenth Nineteen nineteen fifty-six over the next month. Fred continued to fight for his community and on December seventeenth nineteen fifty six he emerged victorious the Supreme Court rejected the appeal and ruled that bus segregation was illegal at the time roses case and the accompanying boycott was the largest successful black civil rights action in US history on December nineteenth nineteen fifty six the supreme court's written order arrived at the Montgomery Court House. Segregation of buses was officially officially illegal in the city. The boycott ended the next day and Montgomery's black citizens resumed using the buses after three hundred and eighty one days of walking and taking cabs for her bravery and her vision Rosa came to be known as the mother of the civil rights movement unfortunately even after the boycott ended she continued to face further harassment and threats Rosa and her husband Raymond grew to feel so oh unsafe they eventually relocated to Detroit Michigan in nineteen fifty seven and settled near Rosa's brother Sylvester MacAulay while in Detroit Rosa became an administrative aide in the Detroit Office of Congressman John Conyers Junior. She stayed there from nineteen sixty four to to her retirement in nineteen eighty eight regarding her work at this time she said I would have to take long of a minute to and give my whole synopsis of my life but I want to let you know that are all of us.

"In September nineteen forty four thirty one year old N. w. c. p. activist Rosa Parks met met with rape survivor rec- Taylor in Abbeville Alabama local police tried to stem roses advocacy attempting to intimidate and even threaten in her into letting receives case disappear the moment she was back in Montgomery Rosa returned to the end of Lacey Pe- office and explained the encounter counter to their President Edgar Nixon in response to the police's tactics. Rosa and Nixon founded the committee for equal justice for the rights of Mrs Mrs Resea- Taylor as subgroup of the N. double. ACP This committee was comprised of a dozen leading black activists that were dedicated to making taking Taylor story public knowledge. They sent dozens of letters to the office of Alabama Governor Chauncey sparks urging him take the case to trial in one letter Rosa wrote. I know that you will not fail to let the people of Alabama know that there is aqel justice for all citizens roses efforts paid off and the incident was picked up by local newspapers then by press around the nation by February of nineteen forty five Alabama. Governor sparks was forced to take action. He reluctantly agreed to launch a second can special grand jury investigation into the crime but the special jury ultimately brought no charges against the accused rapists. Rosa was furious all her efforts had stirred up public support an outrage but Taylor still couldn't secure justice one by one. The frustrations of dealing with inequality on a daily basis started to build up a year earlier. Rosa Rosa had had a memorable encounter of her own. The Montgomery bus system was becoming a lightning rod for political controversy in part because of the extreme lengths they went to in the name of segregation for example bus tickets could only be purchased at the front of the vehicle meaning meaning all riders had to use the front doors to buy their ticket but Montgomery buses also had segregated entrances one for white people at the front and and another for black passengers at the back when a black person wanted to take the bus she'd have to board at the front purchaser ticket then and leave and re board through the back doors. The ridiculous policy served no practical purpose. It was only there to embarrass an inconvenience black black riders on a rainy day in nineteen forty-three. Rosa boarded a public bus in downtown. Montgomery reluctant to go back out into the rain mm-hmm. She instead walked directly back to a seat without exiting and re entering through the back door. The driver James F Blake was is infuriated. He ordered Rosa to exit and re enter through her designated entrance twice. Rosa refused so oh blake grab. Rosa dragged her outside and threw out into the rain before she had a chance to process what had happened. The bus pulled away a stranding her. The whole ordeal was incredibly traumatizing for Rosa in her autobiography she wrote. I never wanted wanted to be on that man's bus again after that. I made a point of looking at who was driving the bus before I got on. I didn't want any more run. INS is with that mean. One Rosa wasn't the only person who is sick and tired of discrimination on the buses in nineteen fifty five fifteen year old girl named Claudette Colvin was riding the bus home from Booker T. Washington high school in Montgomery. The bus was was crowded that day and cove and was asked to stand so a white woman could take her seat. Kovin refused the bus driver ordered cove and and to get up but Kovin held her ground this escalated to the point that the police were called and Coleman was arrested at at that time Montgomery had several contradictory laws regarding segregation a symptom of the push and pull between civil rights activists and the racist cyst establishment so one law not only permitted but required the bus driver to have cloven arrested while another protected cove ines right it to any seat. She wanted the N. double. ACP had long been looking for an opportunity to challenge the pro segregation laws and have them formally formerly overturned in Co.. WTN's arrests seemed like a perfect opportunity to bring Jim Crow all the way before the Supreme Court however the Organization soon learned that the teenage Kovin was pregnant out of wedlock. This should have had nothing to do with her case but at the end of the Lacey Pe- feared that juries would be less sympathetic to an unmarried mother with stakes so high they didn't WanNa take any chances chances the organization raised funds for coal WTN's defense but chose not to try to make her the new face of racial inequality. They'd have to wait for the next arrest nine months later on December first nineteen fifty five forty two year old Rosa parks boarded Ed bus number two eight five seven. It was about six. PM and she was on her way home from work at the Montgomery Fair Department Store. She paid her affair and sat down in an empty seat in the back section. She wasn't paying much attention as she boarded and didn't notice that the driver was was James F Blake the same driver who'd kicked her off the bus the previous year for not using the back door for the next three stops the bus traveled along its normal route more passengers got on and the bus slowly filled up by the time the the bus reached its third stop outside the Empire Theater. The whites only section at the front of the bus was over capacity. There was no seat for one. The white passengers in the front so blake stopped the bus and told the first row of black passengers to stand up so he could make a new row for the white writers. He said Y'all better make it light on yourself and let me have those seats. Rosa hadn't planned to make a stand that day but for whatever reason something snapped she later explained. I was not tired physically no more tired than I usually was. At the end of a working day how old I was forty two. No the only tired I was tired of giving in the rear of the black passengers stood up up Rosa didn't she later wrote when that white driver stepped back toward us when he waved his hand and ordered us up and out of our seats. I I felt a determination cover. My Body like a quilt on a winter night. Rosa remained in her seat staring at the driver. Offer Blake squinted back at her. He asked her again. Why don't you stand up. She replied. I don't think I should have to stand up then. She moved to the window seat. Further away from the Isle Lake asked her again if she was going to stand up Rosa again refused blake threatened to call the police. Rosa responded you do that so blake aac place the call while they waited. Roseau remained firmly planted in her seat. She tried to ignore the judgmental glares from the other. The riders assured that she was in the right eventually. Two policemen arrived at the scene. Blake explained the situation and Rosa was was charged with violating chapter six section eleven the Montgomery City code which enforce the segregation of public buses. They took her off the bus and drove her downtown to police headquarters along the way. She asked one of the policemen. Why do you push us around around. The officers. Response was simply. I don't know but the law's the law and your under arrest. Rosa was allowed one call at the station which he made to her husband Raymond. She told him that she had been given even a court date on December. Fifth Raymond was worried but he was also proud of his wife from making stand he promised her he would find the bail money to get her out of jail soon N. double. ACP Chapter President Edgar Nixon arrived the same night Rosa was sent to jail AOL Edgar paid her bail and had her released by then word of Rosa Parks arrest had spread to most of Alabama's black population. Rosa was an upstanding member of the community in many were astounded that she of all people would be arrested for such a minor offence offense. Edgar saw this anger in his community as an opportunity to get people mobilized later that night he visited the parks home and explained a plan to Rosa she could be the face of a new activist movement and as Rosa listened to Edgar's pitch. She felt hope spring in her chest. She was about to spark the historic. Montgomery bus boycott up next. We'll hear how roses work transformed the civil rights movement now back to the story. The black community in Montgomery Alabama was outraged following Rosa parks arrest on December first nineteen fifty five the N. double A. C. P. wanted to capitalize on roses case raising awareness as they tried to overturn Montgomery's segregation.

Today we're discussing. Rosa parks dubbed the mother of the Civil Civil Rights movement. She's most famous today for refusing to give up a seat on a bus in Montgomery Alabama. Her Act of Resistance Against Racist Segregation Segregation launched a boycott that proved pivotal to the fight for racial equality but Rosas activism extended beyond bus protests. It's an active member of the N. double. ACP Rosa championed black victims of sexual assault organized acts of civil disobedience and founded educational initiatives for disadvantaged students of Color Rosa Parks was born Rosa Louise as MacAulay on February fourth nineteen thirteen INTAS Gigi Alabama her early life was unstable as her parents separated when Rosa it was only two roses birthplace in Gigi insured. She grew up in the center of the nascent civil rights movement prominent Black Intellectual Booker. T. Washington was active there as soon as Rosa was old enough to understand issues of race. She was hyper aware of the inequality as well every Sunday she worshiped at the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Historically Black denomination initially founded to promote an abolitionist geology and then later devoted to racial equality. When Rosa was eleven years old she moved with her mother and brother to Montgomery Alabama Alabama where her grandparents lived there. She continued her harsh education about racial politics by the early nineteen twenties the white supremacist hate group that Ku Klux Klan was increasingly active for a decade after the civil war the K. K. K. had terrorized people of color color in the southern United States the hate group had declined to the point of nearly disbanding in the late eighteen hundreds but white supremacy experienced a resurgence surgeons in response to the growing number of immigrants in the US by the time Rosa was a young child the KKK boasted more than four million Leeann active members fearful of racially motivated attacks each evening roses grandfather laid a loaded shotgun across his lap APP and slept in a rocking chair near the front door eager to help defend her home and family. Rosa took to sleeping on the floor beside him. You're so when Rosa Parks was eleven. Her mother enrolled her in the private segregated Montgomery Industrial School for girls. It was the best education available to a black girl in the city despite her young age Rosa had to work to pay for her tuition. She took a janitorial job at the school pool cleaning up rooms after classes and every day she saw little reminders of the inequality she faced the white students had a bus Rosa and other black students didn't she walked to school every day. Even in the winter in her autobiography biography Rosa Parks My story Rosa wrote. I'd see the bus pass every day but to me. That was a way of life we we had no choice but to accept. What was the custom. The bus was among the first ways I realized there was a black world and a white world hold on during her walks. Rosa often passed by white children and adults who would shout racial slurs at her unprovoked. Some children even tossed pasta rocks at her as she walked by to cope with the stress. Rosa found comfort in her religious beliefs. She reminded herself that her bullies were simply lost sinners and prayed for them while they harassed her. She knew she couldn't do anything more concrete to defend herself because the police wouldn't look kindly on a black girl fighting white people even if they'd started it. Rosa attended high school at the laboratory school at the historically Black Alabama state teachers college but unfortunately she had to drop out a year later to help care for her ailing grandmother shortly after Rose's Rose's grandmother died her mother to grew. Ill now the family's primary caretaker. Rosa needed to work to support them and provide medical medical care education was out of the question at least until someone new entered Rosa's life and encouraged her to go back to school in Nineteen thirty one when Rosa was eighteen a mutual friend introduced her to a twenty eight year old barber named Raymond Parks. It was clear during their very first meeting that Raymond was romantically interested in her but Rosa didn't return his affection one of her biggest reservations nations lay in the fact that Raymond was a light skinned black man Rosa didn't find him physically attractive and she also doubted that a man and who could pass for white could really understand her day to day struggles as a dark skinned black woman however as their friendship blossomed Rosa learned that Raymond was passionate civil rights advocate and a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People War N. double. ACP She was surprised to find that although Raymond dressed well and was an intelligent and thoughtful speaker he barely attended school at all aw thanks to segregation in time a romance blossomed between Raymond and Rosa and they were married on December eighteenth nineteen thirty thirty two when she was nineteen and he was twenty nine Raymond Encourage Rosa to pursue the education he'd never ever had and with his support. She returned to high school and finally completed her degree. Soon after Rosa got a job as a seamstress at a department store you're while Raymond continued on his work with the N. double. ACP although Rosa and Raymond shared beliefs about equal rights initially she kept her her distance from the organization N. Double ACP members feared reprisal from white supremacists and they regularly came to meetings heavily armed should did they need to defend themselves on one occasion. Raymond volunteered to host a meeting at his in Rosa's house shaken by the number of men who arrived lived armed Rosa walked out of the House and sat on the porch hunched over with her head between her knees while the men inside discussed politics Sushi's sat alone in the dark waiting and fear for the first bullets to fly in the moment Rosa was paralyzed by fear violence silence but long-term she grew increasingly frustrated with these sexist assumption that her husband could take risks and join the N. double. ACP while she she needed to be shielded from it so in nineteen forty three thirty year old Rosa finally joined for herself once again sexism reared its head at the N. double ACP as the only woman to attend on her first night. Rosa was tasked with taking taking meeting notes. She was elected secretary at that same meeting but she soon had the opportunity to advocate for women and Black people alike has the chapter began to examine the racial inequality in how police investigated sexual assaults. It was all too common at the time for black men to be falsely accused of raping white women if those men were lucky they'd go to court but still have to plead their case before racist judges judges and juries if they were unlucky. The accused were often lynched by white mobs before their trials began black. Women men also suffered from unjust investigations when they filed reports. The police rarely took their cases seriously rape survivors of have color had few opportunities to pursue justice especially if their attacker was white a particularly egregious case involved a woman named re resc- Taylor on the evening of September third nineteen forty four was walking home from church with two friends when a group of white men abducted abducted her and gang raped her after the assault REC- reported to the police what had happened her friend corroborated the account a few hours later a police officer found the rapists and asked if they had an alibi imen- confess that they'd raped reecey and the police halted the investigation there without pressing charges news of this crime and the polices inaction made it back to the N.

"Parts are game number two from at and t park cardinals and giants rodriguez versus gam dave when we've been talking about the all star game and and you know depending on where the fan vote goes on this whole thing do you think ross stripling or you know we talked about yesterday with you miklas are two guys that could make this team sure yeah i think they've got the credentials i do think it helps some of these guys in national league on pitching side that several of the candidates that you would sort of expect to be there at the start of the year you know bumgarner gets hurt kershaw has been hurt a lot of the the top name pitcher strasberg's bent down for a good long while a lot of the top named guys just have not been present because of injury or maybe a couple of different other syndergaard is another one you could throw in there jacob degrom i'm sure we'll be an all star but the win loss record is so different from usual so that does open up up a lot of spots i think for some of those type pitchers that you're talking about aaron knowle's going to be on the all star team for the phillies for the first time he certainly deserves it you got some interesting interesting pitchers in the national league who've stepped into void of the cueto's bumgarner kershaw's syndergaards who have been down for a lot of this year what do you expect to happen with buster if if controls keeps his lead do you think busters and all star i think so i mean i i don't know that for sure i think jt real mutoko will almost have to be on the team and deservedly so he's a really good player but you know not just because he's having a good year he is almost certainly going to be the marlins only representative so i don't know whether that means they would take three catchers or if it's only two it's a starter in real mutoko i don't follow the all star game and roster construction all that closely i have to admit so i don't know how that works i would think that buster by the players of standards would be an easy selection but we'll see and a guy like brandon bell would be perfect to i mean if he didn't have that appendectomy i think it would be hands down he'd be in there yeah i think so too i mean at first base spot is another position where some of the guys that you would expect joey votto had a good year but not a huge year anthony rizzo got off to such a slow starts with some of the big stars that have kept him out in the past have not had great years the one thing is when i looked at the ballot the other day just to sort of get an answer what it looked like and maybe i cast a vote for a national league team but belts they put the stats now right next every player which is great which is one reason why i think they're the fans are getting it so right so often the fan vote is absolutely spot on because when you vote the stats are right there belt at bats numbers look lo and even if part of it is because he takes a lot of walks it almost looks like he hasn't played eve even as much as he has so i don't know if that'll cost him in a in a bid to try to win another spot i don't know i dave real quick and i don't know if this buzz was going through the stadium yesterday because obviously.

"Uh the tough thing about belt is the defunct that extension in his his his contract going to go from like four and change this year a sixteen next year so he's not really a guy that you can really look to trade at this point because i think the contract is a good of an anchor on him but he is the guy who still has a lot of doll units very talented and if they do make some changes on the any instruction side that be obviously didn't tell us what they're going to do with a coaching staff yesterday um you know maybe another voice would would help him who would uh you know he is a guy who's been a little bit resistant to make changes or or it takes some time for him to come around to suggested changes um but you know he is somebody who hit i think eight or nine homers at at t park even as the lefty so we know he's got power the plays everywhere um and he definitely can be a big big part of this offense next year uh but you know again if if you have him you're relying on him to be a sixhitter instead of a cleanup hitter that means your entire lineup as a little bit longer than a little bit more fearing them in i think that's what they need to try to do he's ideally a five or six hitter i guess when it's all said and done so we'll listen this is like just a partial conversation i feel like there's so much more to get to let's just check back periodically throughout the offseason but as a good starter set and good piece today thanks for coming on oh yeah no problem and there's gonna be a torrent i mean this was going to be really interesting off season i think they've got a ton of different trade possibilities they can look into so look forward to break down with you areas of axel handy thanks to the time 80 baghli a cambier six he these ports they've back mug knbr sixty.
