Unforgivable: Jailed former gang members come out as gay
"A new documentary takes us inside a salvadoran prison and into the world of former gang members who are now a gay a few years ago. Something unusual and kind of incredible happened in prison in western el salvador. The prison was called some francisco. Go out there. And it was entirely dedicated to holding members of el salvador's notorious gangs. Ms thirteen and the eighteenth street gang over the past three decades. These gangs have been in an informal war that is turned el salvador into one of the most violent countries in the world and has forced thousands of salvadorans to leave their country in two thousand seventeen. Nearly all of the inmates inside the prison san francisco go data withdrew from their gangs and converted to christianity evangelical. Churches came to control every part of the prison every part except for one a small isolation block where inmates are locked in around the clock for a variety of reasons and in that isolation block nine men have chosen to live in a single tiny cell about a yard by two yard because they've made a decision. That's unforgivable both to the gangs they were once a part of and to the evangelical church. These men are gay and they've decided not to hide it

The schedules are crazy right now. It almost seems like it's busier now than it ever was before all running in different directions. So it's nice to get a few minutes to sit down and chat. I was wondering if we could jump in. And maybe start with you chris because There's a a very long history between our companies that may even go back and predate you some extent so back thirty plus years ago. My mom worked with richie on the It was his first location for believe it was everything. Yogurt won't think they landed on the staten island mall back. Then you know going back. Three decades plus and watching what you've grown into a several hundred acre amazing campus millions of square feet of hotel hospitality restaurants offices. What has it been like. You know being part of a team. That's grown so exponentially over the last thirty years. Well i've been so blessed to know. The nicole davis since nineteen ninety eight when i worked elsewhere awesome just i knew them as magnificent. Staten islanders and abso- impressed with them as business. People came to work with them in two thousand and eight. And since then i will say that they. They are wonderful business. People there magnanimous people. They're also great teachers. So james one of the things that's been such the the benefit that i can't list in the employee handbook is how much i've learned from them every single day since i started here If i'm being honest and candid nothing in my career or education would have would have said a perfect fit to work in real estate and hospitality. My degrees were in it But what they do is they have such vision. And i think going back to those everything yogurt days you could see it then in nineteen seventy six to say you know what the fast food market is missing healthy food back in the seventies when would to S food chain in.

Voting Firms Turn To Defamation Lawsuits To Counter False Claims
"And another election Cos. Smartmatic have also filed defamation lawsuits against Trump allies and pro trump media companies with more likely to come. Bill Adair runs the journalism program of Duke University and founded the fact checking website politic Fact, I think this is a completely new Way of tackling misinformation as a journalist. I am I'm a little bit nervous. The idea of using defamation lawsuits makes us a little bit concerned. In particular, he's worried defamation suits could become a weapon against journalists just doing their jobs. But in the current moment, he's come to believe they have a role to play. We need to incentivize truth and we need to de incentivize. Lying money is what matters to AH Media company. Defamation lawsuit is a big way to do that. The suits appear to be having an effect. An anchor for Newsmax walked out on a live interview with the My Pillow CEO when he started making false claims about Dominion voting machines. Can we get out of here, please? But defamation lawsuits are difficult to win. You need to show the person knew or should have known a statement was false when they made it. George Freeman spent three decades defending people against defamation lawsuits as the in house counsel for the New York Times, He says media organizations have a First Amendment right to report on what important people say, even if it may be untrue. But he says the pro trump outlets like Newsmax and away in May have crossed a legal line by amplifying and appearing to endorse obvious falsehoods. They haven't stepped back, although I don't now. Your signs that they're starting to because they're worried about liability, and I think that's a good thing. Still, Freeman thinks the strongest defamation case is against Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. He made certain accusations on TV. But then he didn't make those in court because I think he knew you would be subject to discipline and perjury if you made them an official documents, so that would seem to be pretty good evidence that he knew they were false. Yet there are reasons why defamation cases aren't filed more often. Many conspiracy theories don't target a specific person or company and the cases can take years to go through the courts, so it's likely when the next presidential election begins. These lawsuits about the 2020 election will still be grinding along.
Meteorite recovered in the UK after spectacular fireball in the sky
"On the final day of february people in some parts of the uk were treated to a celestial light show as a meteor streaked in from space hundreds of videos viable have since been posted online by amateur photographers. We'll see even more special by analyzing the footage multiple networks of cameras for the first time in three decades in the uk the coporate and as it turns out very rare space rock the caused all this was successfully tracked down and recovered from someone's driveway. Phil sansom spoke to the uk meteo observation networks. Mary mcintyre to hear how it happened. There was a really bright fireball picked up across multiple networks. A week ago on sunday and later in the week we found out the in meteorite fight being recovered and this is an incredibly thing to happen in the uk actually even in the world to recover meteorite that's been seen as a fireball quite ready then we found out that it's one of an extremely rag kind of meteorite just so many special things and we just haven't been able to sleep because we're just so excited such a huge win for citizen science. It really was. Wow and you didn't even know what was coming. Did you just sort of appeared as a flash right. Yeah these things. You can't predict them. They're entirely random pieces of space debris and this one was really unusual because it was captured by so many cameras across the because we had a clear sky across the country. What does it look like. Is it just a bright. The whole sky lynx up or is there like an angle you can see and that's how you figure out where he's going. It depends way you see it from our camera so it was heading straight for us so actually on our camera was just an enormous flash and it was really difficult. Get any data from it. Because she couldn't see a flight path but there's a guy called rigid fleet down in wiltshire. Who caught it side on is the most phenomenal bright thing. Streaking across the sky just resulted in this enormous kind of explosion and it fragmented. We could see that there were multiple fragments there and won't she kind of do the calculations behind the scenes. They can figure out the speed. It was moving the angle through the atmosphere. It's exact path before it been up and once you do all that they can also figure out the mass. And once she know the mashed you can then calculate whether something may have survived and landed the normally something like that would be kind of kept quiet for fear of contamination but because of covid and the fact that the area that they think it landed was basically lots of farmland in the cox worlds. None of us are thought for a second that this would get recovered and if it was recovered not for many days when it been rained on all that stuff so it was. It was just incredible. It could have gone in a stream. I'm guessing it could have gone a sheep's trough and cheap eight it. Many fables in the k. Are thought to survive but the end up in the sea because the small island so who actually found dead and how one of the homeowners at actually heard third on their drives the previous your house and they just didn't think anything of it but once the natural history museum per hour video to local saint. If you see anything please have a look and they went out and there was a fragment some dust and kind of black raise on driveway. And i think a fragment bounced over the the walter. Next door's garden wants. People arrived on the scene from wednesday onwards. There was like a fingertip search of the area remote fragments being found in. We've now found about hundred grams of this. Which is just extraordinary. You said that not only was it. Amazing space rock. It's also a very special kind of space rock. It is it's it's a type of meteorite called a carbonaceous conned right and they're really important because most of them originate from the asteroid belt asteroids themselves the old because that leftover material from when the solar system formed four point five billion years ago. But what's amazing about carbonaceous conroy's they have these tiny little of material that actually predates our solar system some of them have organic materials amino acids in them and to get a sample that is really pristine like this is incredibly rare and so important for scientists to kind of analyze the material and find out the origins of our solar system and before also system. It's just being one of the most amazing stories of the decade and the hasn't been a full that's been found for thirty s in the uk. So it's amazing and what's funny as well as aren't their missions. Going on right now. Sending probes up to asteroids way out in space desperate to try and get any sort of sample from them. And we've just had one line right at our doorstep. It is well. There was actually a mission to the asteroid a writer and the quality of the some police comparible without sample return mission from right and they brought by lake tiny amounts of asteroids. And we've got four hundred grams of this. I mean you can't rely on them landing as a way of analyzing them because it just doesn't happen very often. I take me found all the time. But they've been led on the ground. Who knows how long. And still quite believe israel i just honestly when i found out i just cried because such an amazing
One Year Later: Indicators On The Pandemic Economy
"One of the clearest lessons that we've learned about the pandemic economy is that there are huge gaps between the experiences of different groups of people and he is specific gap that we have been focusing on people who had low wage jobs before the pandemic have been much much more likely to lose their jobs. Then people with high wage jobs the data on this come from a new study by the new york fan and it is quite stark. Yeah by the end of last year there were actually more jobs for people who make high wages than there were before the pandemic this is people who make typically more than about eighty five thousand dollars a year so these include jobs like software developers engineers lawyers corporate executives and these jobs have completely returned not too many of them were ever even lost in the first place even in those terrible months right after the pandemic started now compare that to people who work jobs that typically pay less than thirty thousand dollars a year. Those jobs include things like food servers cashiers home health aides childcare workers and there were still fourteen percent fewer of those jobs at the end of last year that is a staggering gap. We haven't seen anything like this gap between highway jobs and low wage jobs in any of the recessions going back at least three decades and the gap exists now for a kind of obvious reason the unique nature of the pandemic recession. Yes a lot of these. low wage. Jobs are in restaurants bars hotels jobs acquiring a lot of direct human interaction and so a lot of these places had to close or their customers just stopped spending money on them and there is a reason that we're focusing so much on this disparity between low wage and high wage workers it feeds into the other disparities in the economy. A lot of those lower wage jobs are disproportionately done by young workers by workers without college degrees and by black and hispanic workers. And that's a big part of the reason. Why each of these groups also suffered a disproportionate share of the jobs. Lost our second group of indicators is about the economic policy lessons we've learned in the pandemic and here's the i almost impossible to believe indicator as terrible as the economy has been for the past year. There is almost no difference between the sheriff people who are in poverty now versus before the pandemic not only that but this year. The number of people in poverty is expected to fall by more than a third. So that by the end of twenty twenty one there will be more than thirteen million fewer people in poverty than there are right now. The main reason why the. Us government has now passed. Three huge aid and stimulus bill since the start of the pandemic to support the economy and the third bill. Which is president. Joe biden's american rescue plan was just passed by congress yesterday so of course the effects have not yet kicked in but we do know what was in that bill and most importantly we know what it has in common with the to bill signed by president. Donald trump last year which passed with bipartisan support in congress specifically when you look at the money that's being spent by the bills combined by far the biggest chunk of it is the cash that's being sent directly to individuals and families mainly in the form of stimulus checks and unemployment benefits for people who have lost their jobs and the combined scale of the bills is enormous about five trillion dollars in aid for the economy. That is at least three times as much the stimulus money. The government spent to fight the great recession of two thousand eight two thousand nine and just an offer a sense of how much extra money is reaching families because of these bills. Here's what a washington post analysis found. Take a family of four people two parents and two young kids and they live say in massachusetts now soon that one of the two parents lost their job at the beginning of the pandemic and still has not found work. That family in total will end up receiving more than fifty thousand dollars in support from the government that it would not have received without these three bills and the government is paying for all three of these bills by simply borrowing more money and for the most part politicians from both parties. Haven't really made a deal about this. And these are some big changes from how the government has responded to previous recessions like take the great recession of two thousand and eight. When there were extremely loud worries from politicians on both sides about the government barring lots of money to fight the downturn and also a much smaller share of the money back then was used for directly sending cash to people more of the money then we spent on other things like aid to state and local governments infrastructure projects and other investments. Yeah back then. The government was also still more reliant on the federal reserve to respond to recessions but the fed can't directly. Send money to people that they do not have to pay back. It can boost the economy by lending money to financial institutions and certain businesses it can also lower interest rates to convince people and businesses to borrow more money and by the way the fed was still a big part of responding to the covid recession but the us government by using its unique power to send cash directly to people cash. That they don't have to pay back was willing to accept a much bigger role this time. Does this mean that as the economy reopened this year it will bounce back way faster than it did after the two thousand eight recession when the recovery was sluggish until years. We'll find out. Most economists expect it will. They are forecasting that this year the us economy will grow at its fastest pace since nineteen eighty three. And if they're right than the. Us government operating under two different presidents from opposing parties. May well have established a new way to respond to the terrible recessions of the future.
Idaho ends Powerball in state, fearing foreign participation
"In the Powerball lottery killed legislation Wednesday that would have allowed the game with huge jackpots to continue in the state after a run of more than three decades. It came after Idaho Lottery officials sought a change in state law because Powerball is expanding to include Australia and 2021, Britain in 2022, But current Idaho law only allows lotteries in the state played by people in the U.

Should The Simpsons Cast Be Replaced With AI Voice "Actors"?
"With most of the actors who voiced characters on the simpsons well into retirement age and the show seemingly having no intention of ever stopping a meeting. Cut wallover at wired. Uk wondered. could the actors all be replaced with a i rep locations. It makes a bit of sense off the bat. Near the proliferation of deepfakes circulating online aside major movie franchises have increasingly been patching together old footage of actors who have passed away like carrie fisher and the rise of skywalker and paul walker and furious. Seven or even just to fabricate a younger version of an actor who coincidentally had an entire body of work from their teenage years to use as reference points like robert. Downey junior in captain. America's civil war and will smith in jimmy man and with the simpsons. You only have to create the voice shortly. that's far easier especially with over three decades of content to pull from wired turn to tim. Mixed smithers canada-based. Ai researcher and media producer. Who builds a speech model that can be trained to mimic anyone's voice and notably has already recreated homer simpson for a few youtube videos including one where homer stands in for julia roberts in notting hill. Here's how he does it. Quoting wired mic smithers built generic. Ai model that can turn any text into audio speech in english when he wants to make a new voice he tunes the model further with two or three hours of new data of that particular person. Speaking along with a text transcript it focuses in on what makes a homer voice a homer voice and the different frequencies. He says after that it's a matter of asking the model to generate multiple takes. Each one will vary slightly and choosing the best one for your purposes and quotes bonnets. The performance is pretty flat as wired. Says it's quote as if he's reading out something that he doesn't really understand the meaning of and quotes which is pretty apt for homer still in the hut the performance. The show would probably be looking for there are other startups around. The world. Likes an antic in the uk and replica studios in australia. That are working to add. Some of that emotional resonance to a voice is using actual actors to help train them performing different lines over and over again with different emotional tones. Technically if you had someone recite all the existing phonemes in the english language or redescendu since that contained them all you should be able to then piece together any possible words. He wants but in reality. People's accents emotions can change things just slightly enough to make the process exceptionally challenging. Although absolutely doable and the time it takes to train the ai decreases over time with more data. Both semantic and replica studios who work primarily with video games where. There's a lot of intriguing possibilities with things like getting a character to say the player's name or whatever. The player wants them to or having a i basically work as a stand in until a real actor comes on board both of those companies say the actors they work with get paid anytime their voices are used in a game and this is a key element for me. Not just what rights doesn't actor have if they're only ever used to train in ai and not perform roll themselves so to speak but taking this back to the simpsons what rights do actors have whose voices are recreated to be their characters the screen actors guild affords actors certain bargaining rights over the use of their likeness. Which does explicitly extend to a performer's voice and while his protection is being rapidly expanded and reexamined as technology evolves you can impart think crispin glover for its origins after crispin glover declined to revive his role as george mic. Fly in back to the future. Part two they technically recast him. But they saddled the new actor. Geoffrey wiseman with prosthetics and employed classic stage tricks like having him upside down or wearing sunglasses to obscure his features as well as the use of some footage of glover himself from the first movie. Unless you were well aware that glover hadn't returned for the sequel. You probably wouldn't have had any idea that the george mcphee racine was any different from the first movie so glover sued the producers for using his likeness without his permission and for not paying him for the use of the footage. He shot for the first movie. But the legality of all of this now banned far beyond simply using a performance likeness and in many cases. Who is allowed to do what isn't so clear. There's copyright law which could give authority to the studio or whoever owns the rights but that counteracts with the right to publicity basically crispin glover thing and that's especially tenuous with cast as well known as the ones from the simpsons. You know a lot of people know these actors and if in a i replicated homer were out there. Advertising for some product people might assume dan castellaneta who voices homer is endorsing the product even if he had nothing to do with it so it's a tricky path to tread and personally. I'm a bit wary about the idea of ai. Replacing actors were any type of artists. Mean that's not to say that i don't want. Ai involved in arts. I think various tech can produce really rad art. I just don't think it can replace human-made arts and especially with something like the simpsons you know on the one hand. It's been on so long that it's the perfect fodder for ai. Replicated voices because then it could live on beyond the actors. And i guess honor them in some way but on the other hand. It's been so long that there are countless voice actors out there who can nail the characters voices perfectly and probably with more emotion.

Well we got lots to get into but we always begin the episode. Every time we have a first time guest the same way and that's the essence of the show. The the question. We always ask just like every rock song has a hook. That sucks you in rock fan has a moment whether it's a band performance a song or album that hook them on rock and roll. What was it for you. Wow that's a big question The thing that hooked me on rock and roll was. I saw kiss on the midnight special on my television. When i was in the seventh grade and i it was the equivalent. I'm sure jay of our older friends. When they saw the beatles on ed sullivan that was the equivalent of that moment for me. No one's ever asked me that question to tell you the truth You know. I grew up my my folks to this day man. Both my parents love music and so it was a very musical household. The radio was always playing in. Dad would buy vinyl records of perjury artists pop artists and but yeah that was when i felt like it was something that was specifically mind. You know my parents not care for kids. They played black diamond complete with this. You know the rising drum riser in the pyro and everything manages your that. Messed me up preordained. I think it put me on the path for sure. Your kiss was an inspiration for a lot of musicians. And i think it was just the the imagery you know the the faces and the explosions and all the stuff. That kind of just pulled you in you know. The music was great too. But it just had like this power over young kids. I mean i got exposed to kiss back in like the early eighties. And i always remember knowing of them in knowing what they look like before i heard their music and then i heard their music and then i was just hooked. Yeah you know. I you know. I'm i'm probably a little older than you. So you know that midnight. Special show man that would have been nineteen seventy seven grow. This was this was early. This was. I believe this was between kiss alive. One destroyer and You know it was cool. Because i had a group of friends at school that you know we were all kind of discovering rock and roll at the same time and i remember that year in school that no kid and leonard skinner. I'm from the south. And so you know sweet home. Alabama was already the national anthem for us. And so you know the musicality of a ban like skinner We love led zeppelin and You know not long after that. We really got into bands like rush pink. Floyd bad company was big call. Rogers greatest singer of all time. You know things like that. So that set the table for me. I guess jay and then the two big bands not long after that you know when i finally started going to concerts where we saw thin lizzy. Ironically i saw them in seventy nine and that was a game changer for me and The the next summer. I saw van halen for the first time and i was cooked like that's it. I'm i gonna play guitar. You know. I have friends who go to college and get a degree and and and pursued that actually and it wasn't until i had already graduated junior college that i really ever thought of even considering it to be possible to play music as living especially for women coming from such rural backgrounds. There was nobody from where i came from. That was a professional musician. You know so. It just didn't seem possible.

More specific but federal repatriations began to take place under the american indian religious freedom act in nineteen seventy eight and seventy nine during the first year of implementation of that act so We pay creation was taking place privately through various methods but sporadic -ly and beginning to take shape under the religious freedom act and then we worked on very specific strategies to gang repatriation law and hard as the strategy involved a large collection that was on the market really and That was the museum of the american indian york and my friend vine lauria junior was part of the reform board of ford. This museum that had been placed in receivership in fact Four doing very bad things and so vine of even though there were a couple of native people on the reform board he said he had no backup and he really needed me to be on their backup for him so he got me on the board and I was voted on to the trustees in nineteen eighty and we and shortly after that i became the executive director of the national congress of american indians so that gave us two very important platforms To work from and we had to marry them so that we could work on both things at the same time.

"Having a more. In depth conversation about him and about how others may regard him. So I, I think all of those things are inside most black people that I know. You know, there is a space within us that as you have, we have experienced police violence in some type of way, whether it was personally or through a third party, you know, someone else is experience. And so I think a lot of that was always in there. So that was unleashed to there's also another black cultural thread in the series which has to do with Latrice in the butlers and their relationship with God. Let's play one more clip in the time we have left this Latrice in a confrontation with pastor Adler who's played by Ron Canada from seven seconds. God didn't run my son down in the street and leave him to die. A man did the trees. I've seen a lot of people through this sort of thing. It's rough, but the ones who come out of it who keep their heads above water, they lean into you. I was in that church singing his praises while my son was dying in a dish lean. You want me to lean. I never prayed for anything harder in my life, inform us on the live all the while. Somebody else was praying for him to die. So I'm done praying to God who answers a murderer over a mother. Those are pretty strong seen Regina to include in very different from what we typically see for how black families deal with tragedy in dramas that revolve around them in their faith. Yes, very different. But also very real, you know, and I applaud Veena Sood of the creator of the show in the writers for digging in deep, but that that's one of the things I think that was fascinating about the role of Latrice is that while just when you just give a description of the character, a woman who's lost her child be to to a police cover up, but that. She so much more than that, and I appreciate it. That in that Vena was able to find this woman and this this couple that did not have the perfect relationship that while they were this, this God fearing couple, they had troubles within their relationship and those things don't go away just because this tragic tragedies occurred and you know, how do you, how do you explain that to your heart and to see this woman struggle with that is something that a lot of people who are religious, especially, you know, in the black community of that are religious in in the black community feel but don't speak about because it's blasphemous in some way. And then we go to let you go in a moment. I know you've got some new projects coming up. You've got the upcoming. Drama if Beale street to talk, which is based on the novel by James Baldwin berry Jenkins who directed moonlight is directing this also and Bill had the question about another project that's coming up, which I'll ask you before we let you go. Bill asks, is there anything Regina can tell us about her upcoming role on the new watchmen series on HBO. I wish I could feel I can't wait to be able to, but I will say this. We are in this alternate. Universes such a strong word but alternate space. And I think it is going to be a again, another opportunity for Damon to have provocative storytelling, but have moments that make you go. Hm. Hm, because fans the graphic novel, watch the movie and walked away feeling a little flat. So we're looking forward to the series. I would hope that that's not how you feel.

Yeah, I mean, people I always try to say never say never, but I think there's so much legal stuff involved with that. And you know who owns what? And. Yeah, it's just it's just unfortunate, but Aaron was I think, very honest about his role in it. You know, times when I was speak to him and he just he needed to exit that situation. So his soul could be right. And after that, you know, Aaron went on to have twins, and then another child and it just it just kind of it's interesting how the universe works that way, you know he and his wife were trying before that. And then after that situation removed itself from itself from the from from his his world, other things opened up. Why would say for those who've never seen the boondocks just go watch the Martin Luther King episode. Dow just watch watch that one. That was that was my first episode of boondocks, that was my, yes. I saw that the night it came out. I was. Here in DC would room full of thirty brothers and the whole room got quite as Connecticut. And we watched the episode and I was shook. I was not ready to see, but it was if you've never seen boondocks, just go watch the Martin Luther King episode and all of your black friends will pull thank you for trust me. Yeah, let's let's talk about your current work. You'll latest role in the Netflix drama, seven seconds. It's a limited series that tells the story of Brenton Butler who is a black teenage boy who was killed in a hit and run by a police officer who is white. Now, Regina king plays Latrice Butler, Brenton's mother. It's the role for which she earned her. Fourth EMMY nomination. Here is a piece of Regina kings performance. This is Latrice confronting the officer who ran over her son and left him to die Layton for this moon for a long time. I thought I'd want to see you in handcuffs. Seem drag you to the streets to pay for what you did to my son. Right now. Just wanna know of. He was scared. It was paying. If we call for me. To know those last minutes were for him, Regina king as Latrice Butler in seven seconds. What is it like to kind of deal with a role that heavy as an actor? This character is dealing with a lot of anger and a lot of grief how you channel that as an actor and not have it kind of drown you cou way. I mean, there was a heavy six months shooting that show. I will say. I. Oh. Honestly, because of. I've been asked that question and I don't the answer still hasn't changed. You know, sometimes you're asked something and then when you're asked again, you've been able to think about it a little bit more. And so your answer may shift a bit. I feel like a lot of that was in me because of the relationship between the black community in the police growing up that that that that we had growing up and that was very. Extra sensitive for me having a son and just the fears and concerns that I've always had regarding police violence once. Bye. Son became a teenager because honestly, I don't think I really you thinking about so many other things as you're as you're raising a child.

How did you come to be involved in boondocks so much fun boys? I'll bet. Yeah. I actually I dish ind for Riley and I. After I got the part of Riley, they Aaron was trying to find Huey, Aaron, mcgruder, Korean air mcgruder. Yes, the great Aaron mcgruder. He was trying to find an actor actress or actor for Huey, and I don't know if a lot of people know, but a lot of times with voices that are boys, a lot of the voices are women because they, there are voices, don't change. Whereas if you actually hired a boy, there's a good possibility that the voices going to change. So I did not know that includes shows like the Simpsons, Nancy Cartwright has played Bart Simpson since the show began. Yes, yes. And I didn't know that in Aaron shared that with me when after I got in the part of Riley, so I was additioning I would read Riley with several different performers during that audition process. And I would say a few months went by and they hadn't found Huey and towed Aaron will do, you know, let me audition for Hugh, you know, I've been listening to. To your notes and listening to the things that you want and the cadence that you're looking for just, you know, give me a shot. So I went in and auditioned for Hughie. And as you hear Hueys voices more like mine is just kind of me changing the cadence. You know, like taking breaths in places that a kid would take breath. You know when when kids speak there. They they, they breathe in pause in different places than you do is in adult. And so yeah, that's how that's how it worked out. And in the addition, they asked me, what did I think I could go back and forth between Huey and Riley. So I said, I'll give it a shot and I did in the dish in and I think that also helped solidify, I think Aaron thought that brothers kind kinda sound similar anyway. You know, if you talked to my sister Raina depending on who picks up the phone, you may not know who and we're four years apart. So I think that that worked out in my favor, it's interesting and for those who don't know, we should say Huey is ten years old. The show Riley's eighth or two brothers who move from Chicago to a suburb called woodcrafts to live with their Granddad and try to keep them out of trouble with which they meet mixed success. I hear boondocks compared to another show for. A number of reasons and Chris touched on that in his Email, Chris writes what a misgivings thoughts on the controversy surrounding Aaron mcgruder is removal from the production of the final season of the boondocks and the comparison to Dave Chapelle leaving his show feeling the work was propagating stereotypes instead of critiquing them through the show satire, Regina. He not like that was just an all of that was just a very unfortunate situation. And because of that situation, I don't know that it's ever a possibility for boondocks to come back for anyone that's like just sent that question. I'm answering that one now. It happens. So often in. Filmmaking and. The TV making that the powers that be and the creators have different opinions and. I know that it was very, very difficult for Aaron. I know that it was very difficult for others that were involved who also had to exit the the situation. And I know that it was difficult for Sony to for it to in that way. I mean that that was a show that potentially could have. Never ended because while could you just imagine boondocks now will that's one of another. One of our listeners alluded to Chris tweeted. I've always wanted to know what Regina king and the freemen boys hewing Riley Freeman thought about Trump after the election. We got Hueys view on Barack Obama in season three. What about today?

That's never been afraid of sharing exactly what they feel about you or the situation. And I think that's been a big part of it as well. We've talked a lot about the metoo movement in Hollywood and how the industry is slowly beginning to acknowledge the diff- disparate treatment that men and women receive in the business. Do you feel like Hollywood is making it easier as making significant steps in dealing with with the issues that that female talents and executives have brought up? Is it easier these days to be a woman in Hollywood? I don't know that it's. Easier. I think that now this, we're, we're at a space where an in place in time that the conversation is is out there and it's in the light. It's not talked about just amongst other women behind closed doors or when they're just feeling safe. I feel like we're in a space now that the safety goes, it's in front of the crammer and that's important.

My manager reached out to Joel and let the him them know that I wanted to do TV, and they were like, oh, wow, and so they created that character for me. Was that a difficult decision to to go for the ensemble thing as a way to devote more more attention to your family? What was that thought process like, or was it just kind of an easy like, okay, this is done. I'm doing this. Well, it was. It was. It was difficult to make the decision. Season of not traveling out of the city anymore because you know, you're getting offers for things at really are of interest to you. But. I just was very clear that I wanted to be in home. So once that decision was made and I had not done TV in so long. And when I'm being explained what the landscape of TV is and look like, looks like. I mean, to be honest, I wasn't even really watching TV time, so I just trusting. The team that I had been with for so long in that it supported my choices as an actor for so long that had been pudding. It. Reaching out to producers and studios when scripts would come that were written for a white woman, and you know, putting my name in the hat for that role sold. They had done such a wonderful job in my opinion, with. Honoring me as an actor and not just a black actor run. I just I trusted them with regards to that. Leyla asks, can she talk about the business decision she's made to stay working and relevant for so long as a black woman actress. The business decision. I wonder maybe if by way of if ju by example, you talked about the team that's around you and the way that they view right on roles. I, I'm guessing, yeah, there were probably people you had to surround yourself with to distance yourself from certain circles you had to either run in or create for yourself to create the pipelines that would get you where you needed to go..

"I remember watching that show in the eighties and feeling like people were paying a little bit too much attention. To Jackie Harry's role, Sandra Clark to kind of, you know, the the, the one who kept talking about me like I feel like she kinda overshadowed the show and two, two seven was about more than that. You feel like people kind of got what you were trying to say. Then he, you know, I don't know. I think I was too young to even be thinking about it that deep, you know, I think I was. I was thirteen I think when we did the pilot so fourteen once it actually went to series. So I was just at that point just trying to represent teenagers in what I know what I felt like I was seeing, you know, I didn't. I didn't really see me on TV that often, you know there were a few shows but not many. So just like that the girl that I that I know the girl that I am the the, the, the, though young girl that actually has. Mother and father in the home? I, I do remember like thinking that when I was a teen doing the show that this is this is not something you see often seeing this family that is a middle class family that is not poor, not rich, but there are just some Americans, you know. Love in each other in trying to follow their dreams. And I did feel that I felt like that was very great to be a part of it seems like a number of the shows that people know you the most for at least that folks have been commenting to us the most for have been more on samba programs than what you might consider like a star vehicle kind of show even seven seconds which this latest EMMY nomination is a very ensemble focused show. You know, the episode spend at least as much time with characters like Kay, Jay, the assistant district attorney or Pete the police officer as they do with your character. Latrice wonder how being in those on psalm will shows has kind of worked for work for you. Well, I will say that that has choice. I very early on when my son was about nine years old. You know, I made the decision to. To not take projects that were outside of LA because I didn't want to miss out on any of those. Those life moments that happen when you when your child is is growing and at that time it kind of meant that if I was going to do that, that meant that my movie career was going to have to go on the back burner. So I had not done TV since two to seven, almost other than like, like, I think I did like a little quick thing on on the show called the northern exposure. And I think I did so something like on living single..

"That's not the narrative I was creating for myself, unquote. What kind of narrative did you feel you were? Do you feel is being created for you and what kind of narrative did you wanna create? Well, I've felt like a what was being creative for me was a girl in the hood. And it's interesting because after that, I've felt like mother and wife was what was falling into and being. Ask to play consistently. And I think, you know, I, I look at it two ways. Part of it. I look at it as a compliment that perhaps I've done my performance was believable enough for strong enough that people believe you to be that person in perfect to play that mother or or play this girl in the hood. I just again back to what we were, I speaking about the narrative. I want it for myself was just a passionate artist that honors the art that I was chosen to. Share so that that's that's the narrative. And I think that's the narrative that I'm I'm creating now I know that you did not want to be stereotyped as a girl in the hood, but my first recollection of your work was as Brenda onto who was a girl who kind of lived in the hood. So it's a different, but it today, but it's a different kind of character. I understand what you mean in that kind of like boys in the hood way as opposed to lie, oh, here's a girl and she lives in a neighborhood. So I and I think a number of people recognize you from that sitcom on NBC here is a clip from nineteen five of Regina king as Brenda in two, two, seven. Wait on kit. Sure. On. We both feel fine. Right. Admit. I understand. Can you can come out now. Gbi king has Brenda onto two seven talk about how that how that role came about and what you were expecting from it, if anything? Oh, gosh. First of all, just hear my voice. Are you? Okay. Was that a little too real. Well, I mean, you know, I heard a little of you Ian Riley in there. You know, I was trying to, we'll get to Houston rally in a minute. We have plenty of people who have written in like all I can hear see lien Riley who you from boondock, but we'll get to them in a second. Yeah, it's it's fun. Yeah, we'll get to that in the second. That came to be. Tucci seven was actually a stage play before it was a television show written by Christine, Houston, and. I actually played a character named sweetie in the stage play who lived around the corner from the building of two to seven. And when Marlin Christine sold it to NBC to become a show, everyone that was in the stage play, had the opportunity to audition for a role that you know was close to the the if if you fit the character description. So there was the role of Brenda Mary's daughter. So I ought dish in for that, and I think it was something insane like eight, nine auditions later I was shooting the pilot of two to seven. Did you get the sense that the country kinda got what two two seven was really about..

Thanks for having me. Thank you for making time for us. Is there a common thread between all the different parts that you take, you know, when you select a role, are there certain kinds that you have. Always gravitated towards or always passed on? No, I wouldn't say that there's certain kinds that I've always gravitated to, but I would say that I always gravitate to things that are interesting to me and and I think that that is that would be the common thread that even if the final product wasn't exactly what. I expected or was something that I was in -ticipant ING. The initially it was something that I thought was interesting story. You've been in the business for for some time. Now, are there any particular changes that you've seen in the last few years that kind of stand out the most to you? Yes. I mean, I think we are starting to see more roles where you have female characters that are more layered that aren't just someone's wife or just someone's mother, but just more complicated as human beings actually are. So I feel like I'm, we're starting to see more of that. And I also feel like we're starting to see. More roles that that are played by women of color, and the character doesn't have anything to do with their color, and it's it's slow, but I am seeing you said in an interview with vulture back in twenty fifteen and after boys in the hood, you saw quote that I was being stereotyped a lot of us were, I didn't want to be part of that..
