Dont Mess With Notorious RBG: How to Fight For The Supreme Court

"To this week's on one with Angela. Arrived podcast. NATORI is a CB does not have the same notoriety as notorious RPG and what is really notorious is the Senate Republicans for trying to bulldoze the traditional Supreme Court nominations process. So we have assembled an all star legal panel today that also reflects how Supreme Court should look it probably also think here to break it all the way down like a fraction are Kristen Clark President and Executive Director of the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Christopher. Kane. Chief counsel of demand Justice Ellie Misao justice correspondent at the nation and Tina Johnson President and CEO of times up. Hello everybody. Angela. Thank you so much for being here. So I want to start with giving honor where honor is due in. That is to start with Ruth Bader GINSBURG who we lost on September. Eighteenth. I feel like she held on just as long as she possibly could end for that I say thank you. To our BG to the to the real story is and I just wanted to give you all the opportunity to share some thoughts on route Baiter ins, birds passing on her impact in jurisprudence in which he wrote some phenomenal opinions including just two words, I dissent and you know anything else on your hearts to share about that because then we're going to get into the battle that is the Supreme Court nominations but I really WanNa give her some some time just do. Well, if you're a lover of justice than you definitely are feeling this, you're feeling the loss of Justice Ginsburg on the court right now having been inside the court was always great to see her in action. She was always an active questioner questioner always asking all of the tough questions and and really pushing. The. The Orleans before her. I also think though about Thurgood Marshall and what he meant for the court and Thurgood Marshall is somebody who dedicated his career to the practice of civil rights law when he was appointed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven, and justice Ginsburg frank lease the only a second civil rights lawyer to sit on the court. So right now we're at a moment where there's that void that vacancy in terms of somebody brings that lens to the issues that come before the court. So for me that really matters because we're not getting that with this nominee has been put forward. I'm. Christian I agree with you completely, I mean this this her career even before she got on the court is astonishing in all of us who are working women who are women who can sign around credit card applications and hold a mortgage in our own name and pursue our careers including. Alexis. Johnson wrote this morning you know including the current nominee to the court. We are -bility to do that to repair Berg I mean she dreamed up the idea that the equal protection clause should cover women equally as we weren't in there we were you know the kinds of. Laws kept women out of the economic life of our country. Were not challenged until she had the foresights quite frankly and the legal ability to think that up and percents that and so even before she got on the court Mike Thurgood, Marshall's she had transformed landscape forever for all of us and my dog is Getting this okay. Tina go ahead see. My my story about Ginsburg is is a personal one. So I was in high school I was on trial and a week with states or nationals whatever and one of the guest judges was at school year. And then after the thing he he gave a talk for for the kids and we got to ask questions I asked him a question and answering made fun of. I I asked him how he squared his opinions about originalist. I didn't know what was called originalism. Downing intangible whatever. But how he's wearing those opinions. Brownie. Be Bored event, which was obviously against the original intent of the founding slavers. Yet like super important right and he laughed at me and then everybody else laughed and you're like I. Don't know what they're teaching school and everybody else. A bunch of jokes and then some like really not really credible answer I would later. So he kind of any make of me dismissing it is sat down kind of embarrassed son how GINSBURG heard this story? I am magid now that since they were friends was probably bragging. Point about how? Of. This seventeen year old or sixteen year old. But anyway she's GonNa Message to remark. That was held back. Kids they keep descending. which you know is again, I didn't even realize how awesome and amazing was. Sixteen seventeen year old kid. But it really to me goes to show that at even kind of social setting in A. In a private setting as it must have been for her earth the story. The her her commitment to raising credible questions and raising the sense not backing down She lived at right and she gave me a nice little note when I was a kid. To keep trying.

"I always say the Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Thurgood Marshall's the great Advocates of the 20 century even before they ever put on a robe. That's something that I think all the lawyers can really strive to try to be in some small way, And I think that We should always be thinking about how we can use or legal skills or advocacy skills to try to move the needle in the right direction, and that's something that she did in a huge way. Nicole is a woman and as a minority woman. What? What do you think that Just two skins, Berg has meant Two women, especially young women. Whoa! It's first of all, Let me start with. It's challenging for me to speak on the subject. As I'm so emotionally moved by what has happened as you stated earlier. She's absolutely an inspiration to me has been throughout my professional career, but as a woman Fear support. And unwavering attention, too. Seeking out the right things, not just in the world of justice and advocacy, but as a human being The right things for women. Um Is Unparallel. She is the embodiment of Equality. Of justice of everybody being the same of humanity. And that is what I think she brought to the table again and again and again and again from getting into law school. Persevering through the challenges that she faced right to the right to the end. I think that she came forward and she stood for humanity so not just for women and minorities. But For humanity. Which is something that we need right now. You know, it's interesting. You mentioned that we need that right now. We're going to talk more when we come back from the break, but The loss of somebody with such a passion with such energy toe advocate is something that we can allow to be lost. We need to take what she has And take that and again continue her legacy and continue to advocate to continue to teach. Our young people were going to go to break When we come back. We're going to take a little bit deeper, but I do want to mention She is a human being. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a New York food e. She was a fitness enthusiast. She did a lot of things that Extend beyond just the law..

How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?

"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the

Why Mitch McConnell is unstoppable

"The reality is in the Senate right now, it takes just simple majority to advance any presidential nominee Paul Kane is the senior congressional correspondent for the post whether it is to some random commission overseeing the Great Lakes or the Supreme Court of the United States of America, and that has left the minority party with very few options. The reality is that there's not a whole they can do. and. What are some of these theories that we have heard of that Democrats could do or that people think the Democrats could do right now oh, there's this thought of if you impeached someone anyone bill bar or in the trump again and sent to that resolution across the capital that it would instantly stop all other action and forced them to hold an impeachment trial. You know I got an email from a reader asking about they could just deny unanimous consent blocking unanimous consent is something that blocks the action from taking place and basically would make the voting process go much more slowly. Yeah. But there are provisions. Already in line for how to deal with those things, you file something called a cloture motion. That's the that's the way you blocked a filibuster defeat filibuster and yes, it'll take three days to overcome that process but think of it this way if there really were away for this minority party to block this Supreme Court nominee then Mitch McConnell would have thought of it in the eight years that he served as minority leader and was considered the obstructionist in chief. He was considered the greatest structure in the history of the Senate blocking Brock Obama at every possible way if there were ways for digital block Supreme Court. Nominations of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan from the minority position McConnell would have done it but he couldn't do it, and then I've heard these ideas that potentially if Democrats were to win control of the Senate in November, and if there were to be a Democratic president that there's this idea, you could pack the court afterward, you could just change the number of justices that there are on the Supreme Court and increase them. So you could have two more. Democrat appointed justices or you could have four more. Well, that is a the that is something that can legitimately be done in the legislative process. There was no. Foundation in the constitution that set the number of surpreme. Court justices at nine. It started with six justices the chief and five associate justices an grew over the years and you know to be sure you know the considered the greatest Democratic president of all Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried in the nineteen thirties to pack the court and very infamous way and eventually was shot down and the reality is if Democrats were to go through the couple year process of adding justices to spring court that would immediately be met in return with Republicans. Next time they have the power and you know we just would go back and forth by. In twenty years, we might have twenty one justices and also probably need support from actual democratic leadership, and this seems like something that Congressional leadership isn't that interested in something that Joe Biden has said that he straight up doesn't think should happen Yeah Biden had got a little bit cagey the other night when he was asked about it in a local interview I think it was in Wisconsin and he basically said that he didn't want to answer the question because of the answers the question. Then that's GonNa change the. Discussion and what Democrats are trying to do right now is to avoid these. These are processed fights. I know that there is a bigger bigger goal at hand here in terms of overall policy and how that policy is reviewed at the supreme. Court. But most of the public tunes this stuff out because they, they hear things about over Republicans are being hypocrites and well like eighty nine percent or more of the public says, yeah, they're all hypocrites no big deal and they really want to try and focus this fight politically. On, what the impact of trading in Ruth? Bader GINSBURG. The most iconic liberal justice of the last twenty five years for a very staunch conservative jurist like amy, Coney Barrett like that is the biggest ideological jump that the court would have seen since thurgood Marshall was replaced by Clarence Thomas They WanNa make this fight politically not about these seemingly random efforts to put more justices on the Supreme Court and they want this fight to be about the impact on the affordable care act on voting rights on clean air clean.

Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg's life and legacy as she lies in repose

"And tomorrow at the U. S. Supreme Court building. On Friday she will lie in state at the U. S. Capitol. She's the first woman ever to be given this honor all this week. We've been looking back at the life and legacy of Justice Ginsburg and we'll continue that today in 1993. When President Bill Clinton nominated Justice Ginsburg to the Supreme Court, he referred to her as quote the Thurgood Marshall of Gender Equality Law. Begins work herself sometimes pushed back on the comparison to Marshall and his trail blazing civil rights work. I'll take this opportunity to say I don't like the comparison of me. Deserving Marshall because my life was never in danger. His wass he went to his southern town in the morning. I couldn't be sure he'd be alive at the end of the day. I never had that. Kind of threat. That was Justice Ginsburg, speaking in 2018. While much of Ginsberg's legal work indicated clear understandings of racial discrimination, some critics have called out some of her more personal shortcomings when it came to race, for example, Like most of her male colleagues on the bench, she hired few law clerks who were black or people of color. Joining me now is Fatima Goss Graves, president of the National Women's Law, Center. Fatima, Thanks for being with me. Glad to be with you. So how did racial equality factor into some of justice Ginsburg's early legal work? One of the things that I think few people know is when she was at the two women's rights project. She out actually filed a really important Grief in the court in a case involving whether or not there should be the death penalty for rape. And she really used that case and that breathe Toa High light. Both the race tropes around sexual violence for black men. And also the way in which notions of purity that have been attached to white women that they actually are harmful to white women into everyone. And so you know, one of the things that I think may seem more quiet and subtle about her work is that she got really clearly the idea that we were all harmed by discrimination. We were all harm by Whatever form it took, whether is racism, sexism, disability discrimination that that is a through line throughout her work. In yesterday on this show. We've been

Um, it's and Bremner and Alan curvy and Yeah, Anything that can go wrong can also be made. Right? And we're speaking with Martha Men, our former dean of the Harvard Law School from 94,017. Clerked for Justice Thurgood Marshall of the Frame Court of the United States and David Basil on of the US Court of Appeals will talk about that shortly. Also and Bremner and the two of them when I think of Martin and I think of two attorneys with hearts, and it's so important for people to understand about caring and that there are lawyers out there, Professors deans, who really Are thinking about doing the right thing and actually doing the right thing, making things that are wrong, right? Professor Paul Butler, who Waas a student of professor Mino Dean. You know he's had the Georgetown University Law Center described Martha the following way compassionate. Brilliant, wise and gently provocative. I love that gently provocative, and when Martha was introduced, the Harvard Law student, Beka said she has unparalleled grace and curiosity and unfailing caring. These air really important attributes that lawyers don't usually hear about themselves. How does it make you feel when people are recognizing Martha the good in you and how you have been able to be so effective? But, yeah, still having affect Well, it's very kind. I'm embarrassed by these very kind words. But ah, yes, I referred to my parents. Earlier in our conversation. I was brought up to believe that kindness and decency Are more important than brilliance or winning. Um and I think that's one of the lessons of this pandemic. For many of us is how important to stay today, Kindness is being gentle with one another. Life is hard enough. So I am so lucky. I get to work with very talented and creative and motivated people. My students like my colleagues, my staff But I also see such sadness and difficulties in the world. You know, I served for many years A CZ, the vice chair of the Legal Services Corporation, which is the largest funder of legal services for poor people in America. And in that role visited a lot of courtrooms and a lot of offices where poor people are trying to get help when they're dealing with domestic violence or eviction, or Failures to get their veterans benefits or other situations and you see the suffering and the challenges that people face. That means the police we can do is be kind to one another. Yeah, I know and feels the same way. She has devoted so much of her life to helping people and we can hear about that in a moment for man. But you brought up the legal Services Corporation. That is something that President Barack Obama appointed you to how did that appointment go? And, of course, was there any personal connection with respect to the fact that as and pointed out earlier That Barack Obama actually said in 2008. I had a teacher who changed my life. And that was Martha Mino. Well, I think Barack Obama was on his path, No matter who came toward him, but I was very lucky to have him as a student. I've had incredible students in my 40 years. You know Loretta Lynch, his attorney General, Karen Been Wilson, who became the mayor of Gary, Indiana. Paul Butler, you mentioned Paul Cappuccio became the vice president of Time Warner. I mean, just extraordinary and talented people, many whose names you haven't heard. President Obama was in a class of mine on law and society, And as I recall, he wrote a paper with a fellow students about the duties we owe to our fellow citizens. And we became friendly and stayed in touch. And when he ran for of his first offices in the state government of Illinois, I was supportive and Then, when he ran for the U. S Senate, I was as well and when he became president, United States I said The only thing that I wanted from him was a chance to have dinner with him, which is instead he asked me to serve as you noted on This largest funder of legal services for poor people was created actually, ah, under the administration of President Richard Nixon. It's a bipartisan effort. It's always been bipartisan. It's supported by the American Bar Association. Because so many people you know. In Texas, for example, 80 to 90% of people in family law cases don't have lawyers. So many people don't have access to lawyers and and navigating. The legal system when you are at risk of losing a child or losing your home or not getting benefits for in your disabled, they could be devastating. So I, of course, said Yes, I'd be happy to serve. And I learned a great great deal. A TTE this moment in the country because of the pandemic. We're about to have a tsunami of evictions. And it's the the low income people, of course, who were hit the hardest by any natural disaster, and this is no exception. I did have the chance to coach your attack force about tackling natural disasters for legal services. And I learned something very important, which is Every other field and profession has emergency planning preparedness..

It's happening because of rising antisemitism and racism in this country my listeners here plenty about antisemitism. So I just wanted to start by asking you this. It's been a Helluva summer. How are you? I would describe myself as weathered a little bit. We've been going through this quite some time this summer at least the notoriety of these police incidents are is much higher than it has been in the past. So we're we're hanging in there. We don't have a choice. Because this work is so important. And it really does reinvigorate me to see that we've got allies in this fight and we've always had allies in this fight but to see them step up in the way that they have his really reinvigorated me and I'm very excited to keep the fight going. I'm sure that our listeners are familiar with the name, the Urban League because it is etched into the annals of history of this country and anyone who knows anything about the civil rights movement will know the names of the Urban League of the ACP Snick we can go deeper also start really getting to the deep cuts. Tell us a little bit about. What the Urban League has been up to lately and what you've been up to especially over the summer in the wake of the George Floyd killing and other events in recent months while we're one, hundred, ten year old civil rights and Economic Empowerment Organization and we have been working on I'd like to say ending systemic racism for the past one. Hundred Years. we've been doing that through our programs such as making. Housing more Ford audible teaching people how to purchase homes how to stay in homes. We've been helping people to get work meaningful work they can sustain them and their families. We've been working the traditional voting rights area and civil rights area for the entirety of our existence but social justice is taken on a real importance in our work right now as as well as doing all this work in the midst of a pandemic So that's so interesting what you say about systemic racism and then specifically citing home-buying and things like that. You didn't mention education, but I think there's a pretty robust education. Portfolio at the National Urban League as well. Absolutely I think if you look at AJC's goals and National Urban League goals, you'll see mirror images of each other. That's been the real cool thing about this that this partnership and all of these things that people are talking about and I'll show my millennial miss. All of the things that people are are posting on instagram talking about explaining what systemic racism is and why you know wealth divides between black and white communities are so important and underpin. So many elements of of racial injustice today all of those things are things that the National Urban League is. Working on absolutely and I can't say that when I started about a year and a half ago I spent the previous ten years working in the United States Senate including four vice presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris. I believe crazy how these things happen working for her and the agenda that she pursued is so consistent with the work that I'm doing today. One of the first things we did when we walked into the place is lead a resolution condemning hate antisemitism anti racism xenophobia homophobia. It's as important to her as it was to me and so coming here was just a natural extension of that but. As I was saying just the Times in which we live are so unique and perilous parallels between the early nineteen sixties which I'm sure we'll talk more about and today are really really compelling. It's almost like we're back in the sixties again, I want to go there right now because this week is going to be all about black Jewish. Relations and the story of black Jewish relations is not a new odd. We might be writing a new chapter, but there's a whole book that comes before us here. So what's one element clint of the Black Jewish relationship that has meant a lot to you personally. I would probably say the religious and spiritual aspect of the relationship. Growing up as a as a young kid in the deep South. There were a lot of Jewish people around although they were president. We didn't know it I grew up Protestant Christian and a great story is on Sundays. We were always able to use the parking lot of the temple across the street and it used to just puzzled me is to how generous the temple folks could be. Given that they must have services on Sunday to. Eat of the temple was empty or they were just being generous over time and as I moved out of south, then went to law school and live here on the East Coast I. got a much greater appreciation, not only for the religion. My Wife, for instance, used to teach at a Jewish day camp in new Rochelle New York but just meeting. So many friends of the Jewish faith drawing those connections between my own faith and their own and. Also learning the rich history of black Jewish communities especially in the era of civil rights as a lawyer was a big fan is that really don't have you could come up with a Thurgood Marshall and no understanding of the work at the end of Lacey P., Legal Defense Fund was complete without understanding the role that Jack Greenberg played and lots of other Jewish folks in philanthropy in spirituality and pursue the nonviolence movement just a wonderful partnership over the years. As a religious person myself that resonates with me a lot as it happens our listeners probably talk about this before for college I went to a joint program between Columbia University and the Jewish illogical seminary and actually not migration at the graduation of the class ahead of me which attended representative John Lewis spoke, and of course, John Lewis all of our listeners will remember passed away this summer I think he actually was an ordain ministered and he told a story that I'm sure you've heard before because I've heard until it multiple times of preaching to his chickens in Troy. Alabama and that had a certain resonance in this audience of basically all Jews including some we're going on into the rabbit. Those ties between our communities where were not everyone is a person of faith but certainly, there is deep faith and religious history kind of threaded throughout our communities I think those are really really powerful things to focus on. And I hope over time you take a look at surveys of religion in the country in other pugh has done some study in this area religion is trending down a little bit. Don't always necessarily consider themselves religious if you look at community surveys and so it's really important to reinvigorate this relationship and put it on a firm spiritual pudding in Judeo Christian tradition is so rich in the African American community and there's just so much there to really build on. I'm really looking forward to getting that history more prominently understood and remembered in our communities. So when we're talking about black Jewish unity right and we're talking about building black Jewish unity they're really two levels to it, and this is something that we talk about with a lot of our advocacy work. At AJC, there's the grassroots and there's the grass tops right. I want to ask you about both. Let's start with the grass tops right at the high profile level at the celebrity role model level, the politician level what do you think? Needs to happen there to demonstrate the Jewish people and black people should work together and are stronger together. The grass tops may be one of the more important roles in unity and understanding. We are a celebrity driven culture for better or for worse and ideas have a lot more resonance and a lot more acceptance when someone that you know and admire to saying the same thing. So grass tops to that extent are the key in moving opinion. Notions like reparations notions like black lives matter notions like social justice have mood and pretty quickly I think because athletes because celebrity on television and other artists have been saying the same thing and in a short period of time we've seen. Opinions shift in this country not just age not just religion not just race, but everything seems to be moving in the right direction from a popular standpoint. The grass roots which we're going to talk about next is where you really determine how sustainable this movement is. Right. Yeah. So tell us about that I mean in our neighborhoods and our schools in our churches, our synagogues mosques, how can we strengthen those relations? Sure. I've seen a lot of encouraging evidence that we can do this at grassroots level. This is a very human. Very, empathetic movement when we're talking about grassroots, we've seen some of these grassroots efforts come up in. Pittsburgh for instance and New Jersey. And in Brooklyn where when horrible acts of hate murder violence take place the communities come together and they usually come together I with religion. It's the pastors it's the churchgoers. It's the temple goers that really give me some hope that we aren't just a moment, but that we're in a movement. So I think in many ways, the church and the faith community are are in central piece of grassroots. That's kind of what I'm seeing sort of on the ground right now I think black Jewish unity week can drive those grassroots even deeper because understanding the tragedy of the moment is not nearly as important as understanding these deep historical ties right in our faith and our families and what we want from each other in shared history sometimes things that aren't so great sometimes shared history of oppression. Lutely, and for our listeners WHO WANNA learn more about black Jewish unity week, they should go to AJC, dot org, slash black, Jewish unity, or text black Jewish unity all one word to five to eight, eight nine not to keep hitting the faith note here you know we're we're a pretty secular organization in JC but I love what you said about the houses of worship I live on the upper west side of Manhattan which is this incredible. Kind of Jewish bastion historic whatever and if you go twenty blocks down for me in twenty blocks up for me, you probably are GonNa pass by twenty synagogues total and we're also steps away, I mean. We're a mile two miles away from Harlem and the two neighborhoods are very different and that's something that's worth exploring as well. Why that is how that happened etcetera, the strengths and the challenges of both communities, but I was in synagogue on. Chabad after the shooting in Muncie and Lo and behold there in the front row, was a a delegation from church in Harlem that wanted to come in and to be there and to show solidarity, and they got up and spoke after services, and then fast forward to this summer were all obviously in lockdown. But the rabbi of the synagogue made kind of Zoom appearance at that churches services after the killing of George Floyd talk about solidarity with. The black community in the wake of the killings of and Taylor George Floyd and so many of the challenges of injustice that are being faced right now and I think you're right that the grassroots level it. So often does start in those kinds of houses of worship, our religious leaders reaching out one to the other in something that you said, really struck me about the proximity of Latte community and Jewish community in relatively small plot of land. As a policy Wonk I'm sure you appreciate this but either just for the benefit of your listening audience, blacks and Jews were both subject to the same kinds of redlining restrictions in many ways throughout much of the United States where banks would identify areas and they would say this is a desirable area in this is a less desirable area, and so you know Jewish and black families were often circumscribed by these lending lines that still have an ongoing lingering vestige today. If you look at housing segregation patterns certainly in the African. American community they are just as bad as they were in the nineteen sixties things like bike homeownership, which is at a low point especially because pandemic in or closures any fictions Is Worse than it was in the late nineteen sixties. So some of these things we were still wrestling with they seem twins dental, but they're not incidental at all. But again, it's this proximity you know that gives me hope and hope that even outside of crisis, we can expand and strengthen these relationships crises great reasons to get together but it's the more sustainable relationships happened over time outside of the crisis built on shared values and shared interests. So once again, this Jewish unity week has the potential to to be a real game changer. Well, so talk A. Little bit more about that. What do you hope is going to come out of this week if you believe that the basis of a better relationships and greater understanding comes from exposure than my hope is that we can use this week to focus on our rich history on our shared cultural values and to help understand things that we may not understand about each other but to be able to come together in a safe place and talk about those things, this has been tried in lots of different ways you know with lots of different impetus over the years. But in this country, as you know until you can make a sort of a holiday of it until hallmark starts to sell. It really difficult to have something that is stained and that you can go back to know every year. and. So that's the thing that excites me the most I know how excited I was to leave the south. And to meet people of different faiths including the Jewish faith and and get to know them get to count them among in my close friends. I would like that for everyone and so that when issues come up in our communities as we saw in Brooklyn I think earlier this year there was a really terrible assault in Brooklyn by a woman African American woman and if we had a built in long standing. Unbreakable trust between our communities. We can weather the storms we can come together and mutual condemnation, mutual understanding and mutual healing. It's not enough just to condemn something, but it's more important. I think to learn from it and make sure that it doesn't happen doesn't happen again and then five years hence, we can be sending each other black Jewish unity. We cards produced by hallmark absolutely creating whole new language in a around. It, it could be it could be urban slang and Yiddish expressions that. Unless you're in the know you don't you don't know. I'm hopeful hallmark if you're listening. Might be onto something big year. We'll see we'll see what's things we can pull their. I want to close by asking you for a few tips for our listeners actually the few months ago we had an amazing friend of AJC on the podcast named Eric. Ward. The Executive Director of the Western states center. We were talking about racism and I asked him what he thought as a professional opponent of racism and as a black man, what he thought American Jews should be doing to fight racism. His answer was pretty surprising to me actually because he said the best way for us to fight racism was to fight antisemitism since in his work he's bound that white supremacist racism is always based on a foundation of Antisemitism. So I I'm just interested in your reaction to that I, I think I'm citing him basically correctly I'm interested in your assessment of. That and second I want to give you a chance to answer the question from square one. Also, you know what would you like to see Clinton? What would you like to see American Jews doing proactively now to be effective allies in the fight against racism and I WANNA go back to Eric's point. Let me see if I can make this one I. I've only recently come to understand the difference between anti-racism. An anti-discrimination has a lawyer I've grown up understanding that if you want to fix racism, you have to attack it as a matter of non-discrimination don't discriminate against people in hiring don't discriminate against kids in school, and sometimes that anti-discrimination is in the form of color blindness. So whatever the remedy is, it can't be race specific right because the constitution doesn't allow such a thing but let's let's just come up with big broad sweeping solutions that african-americans might incidentally benefit from. You know by virtue of maybe being lower middle income people, we're going to come up with solutions that will work for everybody including African Americans. I've now come to understand that that's just not cutting. It goes great disparities that you talk about the at the beginning their persistent for a reason it's like trying to perform surgery with your eyes close, but you may be able to route around and feel where the patient is but your ability to be precise with a scalpel. And and fix the problem identified at problems impossible. If you don't open your eyes that has been the character of how we approach race in this country for decades. I've now come to understand and have really been encouraging others to join me in. This is becoming an anti-racist. It saying I may not have owned slaves I may have never committed an act of racism or discrimination. Even if that's true. You have to personally get involved to fix these problems. It's not enough to say, well, you know we have laws to address those issues. Laws had been very inexact and very unhelpful. In many ways you've got to get in there, roll up your sleeves and say, okay, is lack of capital in the black community a problem I need to figure out how to get more capital into black communities are educational disparities problem. Okay. I need to figure out how do we improve schools whether it's funding whether it's through pedagogy whatever we need to do, but we need to come up with solutions that actually help. Like people. And not just. Continue to perpetuate these gaps in Hustle meeting well in educational opportunities and health and civic engagement. That's my biggest message to the community, the An anti races. Just. As you know, we should all be fighting against anti-semitism. It's not enough to turn your back and say, well, you know they're not talking about, knee they are talking about you. And it's when we get to the point where those protests and in the halls of Congress where we're trying to make change we see people who look like you see people who would like me and seek people or Asian and and people who are all different walks of life saying we are here because we care and black lives matter and we've got to change the way this country works. I want to dive in and ask a million more questions and and talk so much more about where you just this conversation we are unfortunately out of time. So I hope that this will be an effective way to wet our listeners appetites for the week ahead, I should just add that in addition to his impressive titles at the National Urban. League clint wears another half. It's one of my favorite. Hats it's the hat organizational podcast host and Clinton is one of the hosts of for the movement the National Urban League podcast which people should check out and especially check out for this next episode where my colleague Dan Elbaum will be a guest on the show. We will link to the podcast in our show notes, Clinton let me just say once more. Thank you so much for joining us this week. She said thank you for letting me be here.

"Not complicated. He believes that it is. I quote the right of all of our children. Whatever their race to an equal spot in life, and to an equal opportunity to reach their full potential as citizens end of quote, I agree with, what Thurgood Marshall said, and in my view, the only way to accomplish that goal is to guarantee every person in our country, a quality education, as a fundamental human. Right. Regardless of their income charter schools could be feeling the burn my friends Bernie Sanders going even further than some of his democrat colleagues by saying that he wants to. To halt all new funding for charter schools have a whole review of courage charter schools. This will have a disproportionate impact on a lot of minority students, by the way. So what is going on here? What is the truth of charter schools as it stands right now in this country, we have inas filter Stephan with us now, she is a contributor at the fretless federalist, or the federalist also sometimes known by those who can't speak English. She knows school suffer very, well, she's an education expert also an old friend of mine in as great to have you. Great to be your buck. And by the way, the federalist is also known as the federalist society online by a bunch of leftists who can't tell the difference between those two organisms Asian, so. Oh, good to know. I think I caught some of that on the Twitter this week. But I stayed out of that one, I figured the leftist baby will start using the Google to learn the difference. But tell me what is Sanders. Let's start with this. What is Bernie who wants free college? So in that sense, he's at least willing to change it up at the university level have other people pay for the students education in the future. What's his deal with charter schools in this? He put out the plan last week where he called for as you mentioned in the beginning a moratorium on charter funding. Yup. Called for total ban on four prophets school. That would be trauma full contact with a for profit provider. So it's not really clear how that would even happen because there's a relatively small amount of federal money that goes to charter schools, theoretically one could cut that off. Although I don't know why you'd wanna cut off the one part of federal investment -education that actually has shown some result, but he could cut that off in terms of a moratorium. I mean, he doesn't seem to understand, or perhaps, you know, as the socialist that he is. He doesn't actually care, that most American education decisions are actually made on the state level. So it's not really clear how he would implement that kind of moratorium. Nevertheless, back what he's calling for. So he wants to work toward him. Why? I mean, what, what's the what's the reason that, that he and leftist like him give for this? And then I'm sure there's a, a more and more cynical. But more true reason as to why they wanna cut off this funding so workers through both of those. Sure, I think I think with burning the general or unit would be that charter schools drain funds from public schools, because they provide than alternative and some parents take advantage of that, alternative in fact, not only are there, three million kids over three million kids attending charter school today in the United States. There's another million kids who are waiting on weightless trying to get into charter schools. So Bernie Sanders is bad saying he thinks that everybody to go to their assigned public school, even if it's not working for them, which is the case, especially in some low income areas that have high percentages at risk students or minority students, and that's why there are more minority students than the general population who aren't golden toiler school Charlottesville have moved into a areas with schools that are struggling, and how attempted to meet that need, and providing alternative to parents. So for Bernie Sanders. Because the disproportionately served poor kid and minority students that this is quote unquote, segregation, right? Insured..

"And then co Patrick goes on to praise his quote skill and industry, and of quote, but says that we should oppose having Thurgood Marshall on the supreme court because it would quote upset the rough balance of liberalism and conservatism that recently has prevailed upon the high tribunal and place the judicial activists in full control. So and you will recognise right. Like, that's the same argument that has been leveled at every democratic appointee cents. Right. You know, the more things Jeff I think I'm gonna link in the show notes a a one Williams article from the Washington Post nineteen ninety summarizing Thurgood Marshall's career he was still on the court. He. Would remain on the court until nineteen Ninety-one. But he was eighty one in nineteen ninety and and it I think summarizes the. Wide broad based regard with which Thurgood Marshall was was held. And I just do not believe that anybody can muster the evidence to show that it was the prevailing view that Thurgood Marshall was intellectually lazy or not qualified for the supreme court. Now that begs the question was it if you of anybody and here, Robin gives us four examples. And I wanna tackle all four of these. I'll I'll link his his tweet out to us. The first is, and I'm I'm doing these in analytics are just wanna make sure I have this. Right. He doubled down on the third Marshall. Because I thought you did a good job of pointing out that like, no, the only time that people criticized him, as you know, possibly intellectually deficient was when his you know, he was at thousand years old, and he was maybe and cory's Horry way Robin says that's not true Corey Robin says there are wide ranging criticisms racist, criticisms of his intellectual capacity and laziness so here are those four claims, and I'm going to tackle these in an analytical order, they're not the ordered that that Corey presents them to us. But he the first law clerks on the court called him Justice Brennan slash Marshall behind his back. Now that I gotta unpack this a little bit because it's not really the same claim it is related to another claim that people have made about Clarence Thomas, which is that Clarence Thomas was internet Scalise second vote, and by the way, that would be a fair thing for Corey to criticize when people say said, I guess is dead. But if you if you say that Clarence Thomas was, you know, just Antonin Scalia second vote that that would not be true, right? As of twenty fourteen Scalia was the Justice with whom Clarence Thomas. Most voted ninety one percent of the time. But he also noted ninety one percent of the time with Sam Alito ninety percent of the time with Roberts. And you know, what that shows is the Clarence Thomas is a conservative, and he voted with the other conservative justices. That's not surprising and Kagan and Ginsburg for exam. Voted together. Ninety three percent of the time. And nobody says that Elena Kagan is Ruth Bader Ginsburg, second phone, right Robertson, Alito voted together. Ninety three percent of the time. And nobody said Alito is Roberts second vote or or or vice versa. So I I agree that there's that that claim which we didn't talk about would be a little bit unfair to let to level Clarence Thomas. But what about as leveled against good Marshall? Right. So this is what he's trying to say. Is that the law clerks accused him of being a puppet for Justice Brennan? William Brennan is the most influential liberal supreme court Justice least of the past fifty years. Probably of all time. I've talked about him on the show at great length..
