Biden Falsely Claims All Segregations Were Republicans
"And listened to Joe Biden's speech in Georgia, the devil went down to Georgia and it was Biden railing about segregation. He's railing about the specter of segregationist George Wallace, the originator of the notorious phrase segregation now segregation tomorrow, segregation forever. And Biden left the clear impression that these segregationists could all be found in the Republican Party and his idea was let's not continue this horrible Republican tradition of segregation. A Biden didn't say all that, but he implied it. And he did name specifically the segregationist and he named Wallace, in particular, but what he didn't tell you is that the segregationists were his buddies. Biden earlier boasted that earlier in his career boasted that he knows these guys, they were great guys. He worked with them. He found common cause with them. They actually regarded him as as a kind of protege. So interestingly, all of this has now become a race, not just with Biden himself doing it, but with the media sort of colluding in it. And what Biden also didn't tell you is that the segregationists were Democrats, and this goes all the way back to the aftermath of the Civil War, the very people. The Brennan center has put out a long list of civil rights bills that were blocked by segregationists, but again, the Brennan center that's left wing organization doesn't tell you that those segregationists were Democrats. They were Democrats to the core. There's virtually one or two examples of a segregationist Democrat who became a Republican Strom Thurmond is an example of one who did, but when Thurman became a Republican he wasn't promoting segregation at all. Now what about George Wallace? Well, George Wallace was a Democrat. He was a segregationist. He briefed the left the Democratic Party to run as an independent, he thought it might be a better way for him to try to get to the presidency. But when that failed, interestingly he didn't become a Republican. He became he went right back to the Democratic Party. He stayed a Democrat until his death. So this is the point that you get the false teaching here and the false implication from the left that these segregationists became Republicans, and the fact of the matter is the vast vast majority of them stayed loyal Democrats right into the graves.
Caller Champ Describes the Moment the FBI Knocked on His Door
"Back to champ, who was wrapping up his story about what happened to him on January 1 he comes home, FBI agent at his door champ. I hate to keep interrupting you, but now you can finish the story. Oh, absolutely. So they sent a female agent up from Charleston, South Carolina, like I mentioned, I live in a remote area of the pisco national forest and lo and behold, and FBI is here. She reviews photographs, videos, mentions and I have a video of Ashley batt actually. That was the one that she wanted me to forward to her. And overall, the questions were geared at, are you a member of a militia? Do you want to kill anybody? Because I do have guns in the house and I did not want her to come into my house. She didn't have a warrant to come into my house. And the overall tone was just really sort of pressing the finger down. And after having been there, I've heard your other callers say, we were singing gospel songs. There were people there. Iranians for Trump. They were Chinese. There were groups of people. It was asshole, Colin Powell addressed the Senate because they used to work for senator strom Thurman. I saw him address the Senate after the Gulf War and outside of that. This was the second most patriotic event I've ever attended. Then, to see the ramifications and to hear the reporting on it was so asinine compared to what actually was occurring while we were there. And this being blown into what it is, in my opinion, this thing was set up. It was a play. It was meant to make Trump people seem like bad people. When I've never seen a unification of people from all over the world, colors, races, you name it, all loving, respectful, very, very good people. And what this country is being told is an absolute lie that the stuff that comes out yes, they comparing this to 9 11 pro harbor. My grandmother's first husband was the first American killed in Pearl Harbor. I take extreme offense to saying that what we were doing was anything other than being patriots of this wonderful nation, we are blessed to live in, which is the best nation anywhere in the entire

You know they have their version of tundra and and so buddha said he didn't want them spread in india for four or five hundred years because he wanted to establish this idea of dropping out so he knew non dualist him would be misunderstood as monus which was the basic the basic trip of a totalitarian caste system. Hierarchical system is your tails underlings that they are one with you and your one with god but they happen.

"You know really a buddha. But he goes around in different universes To get near beings who bring out their wisdom and ask and find any that he finds. He makes him talk about wisdom and not about more simplistic day. And so it's a special kind of archangel. Almost you could say of the buddha buddhist. And they say that he was. He was scolding shocker mooney and avello cadavre and saying you guys make such a fuss about the indians and the tibetans and you're just only going here and then goes to bed and similarly turned on and cetera at what about the chinese who guys are leaving them in the dust and you didn't go there and so and so i'm gonna incarnate in china and i'm going to them and then you know they like time and they keep good records his history and they are very me no common sense to have really good cook at carnegie there bring the wisdom to them so sort of the buddhist send. The dow is had this view the enlightened ones on both sides that they were incarnated in each other which is a great thing that an ancient time. Actually india also did so. The indians would see the that shiva. And and and especially vishnu. They would see as being the buddha for people who needed a buddha. And then the buddhist would see buddha as being vishnu and shiva and so on for being them when for people who needed them so that way. They avoided religious conflict in their own ancient time. If you follow me. And they didn't get into that lethal taking about how you you believe my way or kill you. Which is a nasty thing that we see coming from the west more although occasionally they even people can find interpretations where they can kate into everywhere. So nobody's perfect but they were less likely to do that. For some reason in asia i think because they were more they were wealthier actually those countries which is hard for european derived people to acknowledge because lately they're supposed to be underdeveloped but they were actually much wealthier Engine time and therefore they're kings and social authorities even high priests were more tolerant of the mystics in china and in in china and confucius time you know china's said he wouldn't tolerate one person who would just be meditate all their life and wouldn't perform something for society you know and and loud too when he wanted to offer data. He left the country when he wasn't doing his day job. If you understand so economy was bloated more like european economy less tolerant. Let's allowing people to drop out on.

I'm reading a buddhist sutra. Now american recordings of it which which has brought his hat does and buddha is coming from other universes too to attend to the buddha of this universe two thousand five hundred years ago to listen to him and talk to him. So it's like a normal thing in the buddhist indian goods imaginaire who could say imaginary on the debate and one therefore has inherited and preserve so anywhere like i.

"Blacks in america people around the world have to work together because they have no to because this is a country that His proud of being american he would not be separated trumpet. He searched for a common ground and empathizing what people have in common or average there were people were different. He insisted that black black history and black threat as your russell as right history. This was when his major inside the the scene about radical non-violence ultimately if you try to convince people that they're wrong and the problem is coercion often said is you never convince anybody by trying to force him to do things wrong. And i think the question we faces. You know that the soon rice -ment civil rights movement did there for a ferocious and if it ended you know legal immigration didn't convince people that that this had been right and you know i rec- we see it in the former president republican party today So i i am i. I'm not sure what the answer is. Thurman could be mistaken. He didn't hold all the answers. But i think looking for what he called the common ground and he did not see the conrad brand is a place where a matter of dull compromises in. Everybody settles the half where people can realize that potential is what he was looking for towns a little abstract than on real i think it's still functioning to strive for. I don't see how america is going to get any better if bitterly divided as it is. I don't keep this clear way. A comment I think same problem the civil rights movement face with nonviolence Rejecting on on. I think we're in a in a similar position. Today i think thurman within astute and cute reader of american history of religious history. I i hope. I said this before that i think the question is can the tremendous social for supervision harness. Good that religion. It's too important to noor is too important to say you know. Try to stamp it. Out and Alive with kevin religion be karma positive force. Be bringing people together. I think the record on that is very much open. But i think it's.

Six i'm the was in daytona schools determine so they knew each other well at one thousand nine hundred fifty five thurman gave the main eulogy at. We're to see and that she was extroverted than then he was and i think he tended to be more reserved and she wrote a number of books. She's very interested in black history. She published a book on black pioneers in california with nathan huggins who was a prominent black historian The did work on has black history in massachusetts. You know one frustration. That i must say is that when the term papers were given to bless till they did not include very many personal papers from the couple and and you know i mean i. I mean husband's wife cannot write to each other as much as you do other people because your living together but and i think this was most howard decision and choose decision that they didn't want their personal life being pride and poked that on biographers as a result it dolittle difficult to say how how the marriage words how has influenced each other but it clearly what was important in also I should say the thurman was quite a feminist four. He met that he wrote White south african famous olive schreiner and his be nineteen. Twenty six at rochester theological seminary the basis of sex morality. The blazingly feminists statement of Inequalities in the need you know how women being treated society Quite remarkable person and more at least to be done on her. Yeah we're very interesting. I so we don't have too much time left in it. And i think that we there's so much you know thurmond's life is so complex and there's so much to talk about that everyone's going to have to read the book but you know to focus on a couple of things. I think that we need to make sure we we get to let me ask you a couple of questions about his influence on the civil rights movement. I mean you know you pointed out earlier that you know everybody becomes an influence on king and the world of twentieth century black history. Because you know that this kind of of a selling point in a sense but thurman is hugely important on king. How does this happen right. I mean how how does somebody who is not explicitly. An activist become so such a central influence not only on king but on farmer on the larger nonviolent movement on this entire generation of black activists that really you know change americans such a profound way. Ausra i should say was several student at howard university so that can pull it also student at howard says that connection with really express and farmers started.

Retired hundreds of his sermon available. And you could. You got a lot more for you. Get more from listening to him. Speak words on the page. So maybe it's time to get into the nitty gritty a little bit and talk about therms thought and how it becomes influential on king and others. And so i guess how does thurman start developing you know this really kind of pioneering mysticism which is not something that you know. Americans i think. Think about a whole lot generally but he becomes this deeply. Invested in mysticism. Ends up being a proponent of nonviolence meeting gandhi. Can you lead us on that journey. Little bit.

"Well there's two parts to that one is that's as far as we know and it could be that she's not reported. The other part of that is that by the time. Buck was in that relationship. he's aged. how exactly he's aging out of crime. Although domestic abusers don't necessarily age at our crime. Although i mean it possible making that this is the situation where an individual served time. And they've rehabilitated themselves. Sure that i'll know 'cause second marriage. He had another. He had domestic issues afterwards. He got out of prison though at thirty years old. Still a young guy. And i don't think eight years was nearly enough for all the where i was going next. Eight years is not enough. Was it an attempted murder charge or an assault charge. It's like amy literally reads my mind. Let me just say what What i was going to say next buck thurman was tried for first degree assault which involves intent to cause life threatening injuries or life threatening. Injuries are the result. Yeah i don't understand why. This charge was an attempted murder which could have resulted in possibly a life sentence in prison. He brought a knife and attacked her. Until i was he also went back a second time to stop on her neck this end. He was screaming at his son. I killed your mother so he thought he killed her and that was why wants to try. Or allie really went to trial and i agree assault which is drastically different. Why is this not attempted murder. I have no idea total failure on this one and is there not premeditation here. He brought a knife with him. I this is seems like there's no there's icy classic murder here. I not see degree assault here absolutely. I totally agree You know megan. I'm not the one who believes that everyone should die in prison or get these ridiculously long sentences but eight years for what. I consider very clearly and attempted murder. He this guy got out at thirty years old and had whole life to live one she is still dealing with the trump physically and emotionally of what happened or exactly and she was very scared but he got out yes. She was doing a lot of speaking events and she stopped doing them when he got out because she said i'm never contacted her or anything as far as from what i could ascertain. He has not contacted her but yet fourteen years was not an appropriate sentence. Release an eight totally not appropriate. This is a guy where. I can't tell you what the appropriate sentences but again i want him imprisoned till he's aged out of crime. I agree good. I'm glad we're on the same page. This is always my concern. And also i think someone like him needs to give back. He should be the one. Who's you know talking to people about what he did. And how regretful. And how anger made him a star.

"This was a landmark case because it was the first time a woman sued an entire city. Because they're police. Department failed to protect her. Wow yeah so. It became very landmark in every way what was the outcome of the suit. Well tracy one and she was awarded basically just shy of two million dollars and this was in the nineteen eighties. Connecticut also passed thurmond's law which mandates arrest in domestic violence complaints and as we know many other states followed suit. And i'd like to take a moment. Here amy for you and i to discuss mandatory arrest for domestic situations because mandatory arrest has also had some other unintended consequences for women. And what do i mean here. Well first of all Thurmond's law came about in the nineteen eighties which marked a real time for the victim rights movement. We know that which made sense because it followed some of the other. Big movements by disenfranchised populations. This was when people started to speak out against inequitable treatment. We had the civil rights movement. We had the women's lib movement and movement by prisoners to be afforded equal protections. The time is absolutely right for this issue and we know that the most comprehensive act to help victims of domestic violence was passed in one thousand nine hundred ninety four which was vishwa the violence against women act and this was really the big push this provided more aid legal protections and a lot more right for victims.

Having something like thirty years the ever relationship with buck to know did not. I think this is one of those situations honestly where he had never encountered this type of violent incident. And i think he just panicked to be honest for backup when he first got him. Yeah so backup did show up and and that's what happened. Actually you know shortly after medics and other officers arrived and when the other officers the backup arrived they did arrest buckthorn. Cj was unharmed. Cj was luckily unharmed. They arrested buck thurman for the brutal assault on his wife. Tracy was taken to the hospital. As i said she'd been stabbed a total of thirteen times across her face.

"That is graphic and disturbing in nature. Listener discretion is advised on june tenth. Nineteen eighty-three in torrington connecticut. A young mother was violently attacked by her ex husband. The vicious attack would spill over into the streets of torrington around horrified spectators and a police officer who seemed unable to stop this brutal crime.

'P' is for Passion
"I are bringing tia today. The letter p from our hope series which is passion. So how do we find our passion. How do we do that. I kind of want to go back to one of our guests that we've had on our show and pre kumar who was from india and she brought up something really really cool and she said if you wanna have passion. Take money out of the equation and seriously. Is that not the truth there. What zinc about keith. About what you guys would do or what you could accomplish if money just was not it right like you took money out shane. What would you do. What what kind of things would you take. Part in i would travel. Yeah exactly and so. Would i write because that. I'm totally passionate about traveling. And so i just want you guys to to think about that. What kind of things would you do if if money was not a factor in it wasn't in the equation so Gary voinea check. The often is called gary v. 'cause a lot of people can't pronounce last night but he's an american belarussian entrepreneur and he said skills are cheap. Passion is priceless and that was really cool because yeah we can learn a skill and it's pretty easy to to get right but how hard is it to get passion and keep that passion and and let it continue to drive you and i think that's that's really it. What i wanted to talk about was the word passion. And i looked into it a little bit and from its if you look at it from greek and latin meaning. It's to suffer and i thought that's interesting to suffer means passion. But think about it when you had when you're developing your passion. Whatever it is you have in order to build that passion. It's gonna come with a cost. It's going to come with some suffering. You know you might. It might take you forever to find your passion. But i just thought that was so fascinating that the were the word in greek and latin means to suffer and i think we have to go through some suffering to get to our passion Let me give you an example. So we love to travel. We talk about that a lot. But i didn't growing up i didn't we didn't travel a whole lot I had to learn that. That was my passion. Sometimes i can't live out. My passion can't travel every weekend. Because i don't have enough money but so i have to suffer through some of that in order to see my passion through. I just thought that was so fascinating fascinating to to see it from that side or that perspective the other side is the passion that we typically think about which is an intense enthusiasm towards something or a compelling desire to do something that that's my passion of traveling is just that i love to do it I don't think i was born with it. I don't think anybody is born with any passion. You have to find it within you know. When i was growing up a little child i loved to play soccer. I had baseball cards at collected. Had garbage pail kids. And i when i was thinking about this. I remember sitting at the table with grammy and talking about dodger baseball. She would be reading the newspaper and she'd be. Hey you know about this player this player and she taught me to be passionate about dodger baseball and still lives within me today. i can't see as many dodger games as i want to live Especially right now. But i love taking my family to dodger stadium and it brings me back to my childhood when we sat in the stadium watching ron say and steve garvey dusty baker and all of those phenomenal players that she allowed me to see the passion in dodger baseball. That i have today Now you know it could be. A people could have a passion for animals or art or hobbies like dancing or singing or writing or yoga. anything. But i don't believe that we are born with that. I think we have to develop it. And we have to go through that suffering like they're talked about to develop that passion. Howard thurman was an american author philosopher and educator in civil rights leader and. He said this. Don't worry about what the world needs ask. What makes you come alive and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. And i think that cannot be more true than it is right now. They we see so many people that are not coming alive. They're just going through life. Just almost robotically and i think if we have something that we're passionate about anything hopefully you can hear it in our voice when we talk about travel and that passion that really is a passion of ours and if we if we don't focus too much on what the world needs and what we think the world needs and that we come alive. We're going to be much more passionate simply about living life. I love that you brought up grammy. 'cause she she is an awesome individual and Sad that i can't spend as much time with her anymore. Obviously because she's passed on but She i think you brought up that in my life. One of the things that grammy was super passive passionate about was swimming and she. I'll never forget. She was the one that taught me how to swim. Grammy was a fish and so she was super passionate about the water. I mean grammy was passionate about a lot of things right. And i think that's where some of our passion comes from is from the some of the things that she taught us and i think that's why shane and i really love to swim so much. 'cause grammy would. We would always swim whether that was in the ocean or in her pool that she had in her backyard. But we would all i. I swear every time. I saw drama we were. She was always swimsuit and we were swimming. Yep that's what. I remembered so i i. I think that's true is it's like find something that you really love and i think a lot of times. It's like going back to your childhood. What is that thing that you did as a child that you don't do now that you're passionate about and then what's stopping you from continuing those things. Shane and i love dodger baseball. We got that from grammy. We also love swimming. We got that from grammy when we were kids and so i think a lot of times. It's about you know what what was it when you were a child. And why aren't you doing that thing. Now what what is stopping you from having that passion. I think passion is like a fire. That's with inside you rate the just. Nobody can extinguish and that. You don't want to extinguish it. Can night that fire and let it burn within you. i also want to bring up something That i was thinking about too as i was thinking about passion I think it kind of goes back to Another episode that we recorded with benita condie. And she said this in an. I think it has to do with passionate as well as that when we put our blinders on is that thing. We're passionate about just right here. And we can't see it. We can't we just have to take these blinders off to to be able to see that thing where we're passionate about typically. It's right in front of you. So if you don't have a passion or can't find warner of wondering how do i get more passion. It might just be right in front of you. You just have to open that fear up a little bit maybe to find that passion that theme that you're super super passionate about yup. I think often too often. We get comfortable in our comfort zone and we think well. We don't need passion in order to live and i would strongly disagree. I think we that's why we're talking about passion that's why it's part of our hope series because we strongly believe that in order to live life and come alive. You have to have something you're passionate about. It doesn't have to be many things it can but if you're passionate about one thing then it's going to help you So have you ever thought about your passion being something a tool to motivate and inspire others. Think about that.
'Sisters With Transistors': Pioneers Of Electronic Music
"Musical instruments that produce sound by using electronic circuitry bore the names of male inventors, and they were popularized by male artists. It is Allyson McCabe reports. Women were and still are at the forefront with a new documentary. They're finally getting their due in the 19 twenties, the Russian physicist Leon Thurman, debuted and electronic instrument that could be played without any physical contact. Musician stood in front of a box and wave their hands over antennas summoning otherworldly sounds seemingly from thin air. Experiment might have been a passing novelty, if not for the late Clara Rock quarry Ah, virtuoso who, well concert hall audiences and helped refine the instruments design music. It was not suspected, as she recalled in the 1992 interview with public radio station W Q. X are there was no way of breaking the sound. You couldn't make the cut that you couldn't make separation. All I had to do is inspire him that I needed. Frogmore is just one in a long line of women who change the shape and sound of modern music, says filmmaker Lisa Robin er. When most people think of electronic music in most cases, they'll picture men pushing the buttons knobs in the boundaries. So one of the things that really drew me to the story was that this was a story of women being enabled by new technology robbers. New documentary sisters with transistors celebrates their achievements spotlighting pioneers such as Daphne or, UM, who was hired as a studio engineer by the BBC in the 19 forties, while men were off fighting in the war after hours or, um, began recording and manipulating sounds on magnetic tape. Man. Her experiments led to the co founding of the BBC's Radio Franek Workshop, which also provided a platform for Delia Derbyshire. She crafted sounds for hundreds of BBC programs, including the iconic theme music for the TV side by Syria's doctor who which debuted in 1963. Five years later, Wendy Carlos took the first commercially available keyboard base of the Sizer to the general public. She introduced the instrument she helped Robert Mode design on her album switched on Bach, which sold more than a million copies. At the same time, female composers continued working on their own music. Juilliard trained Laurie Spiegel says Elektronik Instruments helped them bypass creative and professional obstacles and give voice to their compositions themselves. It was like looking the way a painter or a writer works. You were working on the actual work itself. You were being a piece of music out of sound that you could then play for somebody else. Instead of just having a piece of paper that you then needed someone else to go and perform. As a researcher at Bell Labs in the 19 seventies, Spiegel made music using experimental computer systems and complex algorithms to generate entirely new sounds. 1977 Spiegel's work was included on the Voyager golden record launched into space to represent all of humankind. That, she says the achievements of women have often gone on recognized early computer programmers very often where women because it was considered clerical. Then when they began to be called computer science, then it was suddenly totally men, and it was for gotten their women involved in your early days of computers. History of women has been a story of silence. Of breaking through the silence. We shall not be rubbed any longer. It's beautiful noise. Sisters with transistors is narrated by Laurie Anderson in 1977. Anderson debuted the tape Bow Violin, which allowed her to create her own performance art. In the 19 eighties, Anderson modified her Elektronik Trump set turning her body into an instrument. We gotta Lynn Drum machine and it was broken. And so I took it apart. And I thought, Well, what if you sold it into a suit? You know on your views to the various drum pads, specially For today's pioneers. Electronic music isn't just music. It's also a tool to break down barriers, says composer Yvette Janine Jackson. My creative journey with electronic music.

How Police Violence Could Impact The Health Of Black Infants
"Floyd's killing in Minneapolis placed police violence again in the national limelight, with protests erupting. But black and Brown communities say the effective police violence is felt long after demonstrations died down. In fact, research shows trauma from racism and violence can leave imprints on a community's health, including on pregnant women. Here's NPR's Yuki Noguchi. Outside the corner store where George Floyd died. Murals, stuffed animals and origami cranes filled the street. So I'm Rachel Heart of men. I am on the faculty. Rachel Hardman grew up nearby and it's a public health professor at the University of Minnesota. We walk in a field where there's a memorial for victims of police violence. It looks like a replica of a cemetery with about 200 grave markers like Ralph Bell, right? Hard del Cheryl over here. Many of these people were local and died at the hands of police. Travis Jordan in Minneapolis. He's actually it was a friend of one of my dear friends, Hardman surveys to makeshift cemetery. My first thought, is it This isn't even all of the names. And that breaks my heart. This scene, she says, doesn't capture the whole of the problem that police violence leaves marks across a community of survivors, their families and neighbors. Hardiman studies racial disparities in health, focusing on a longstanding problem. Black mothers die in childbirth of 3 to 4 Times The rate of whites That holds true regardless of wealth or education. Black babies are more than twice as likely to die in their first year. Research suggests racial discrimination is a likely cause of both preterm birth and infant mortality. Weighing factors like obesity, smoking or poor prenatal care. Hartmann's latest research looks at how police violence in particular might affect that. She studied women in and around Minneapolis after police shot Philando Castille in 2016, and two years later, Thurman Blevins Thurman Blevins had just been killed in North Minneapolis. And we asked folks do you feel like this is impacting your current pregnancy and Over half of the women in our study said Yes, nearly 60% of those women gave birth to pre term babies who were underweight or died at route, she says. It's about stress. Ah, lifetime of struggles of her housing, education and safety. Large body research shows that that stress across pregnancy can have an impact on low birth weight and preterm birth in particular. Then in the start of life is so important, because if we can't get that, right, you know we're setting someone up for a lifetime of pain and a struggle and disadvantage. Examining these struggles, Hardman says, might help doctors better understand challenges for women like Raven Cane. I meet cane and her three week old daughter, Remmy. Okay. Prior to Remmy Kane had five miscarriages with no medical explanation about what caused them. I had gotten an ultrasound and had seen a baby in a strong heartbeat. Literally had come back the next day, and there was nothing there. So I just had this really high anxiety anxiety about losing her pregnancy with Remmy, too. She was about four months pregnant when the pandemic hit. Then George Floyd died blocks from her parent's home. You know, During that time, it was constant sirens when they were saying that the KKK was supposedly in town, and it's just stressful. It's like and then you're trying to Carry life and then you're thinking about them being a black person in this world and the things that they might encounter, Kane tried to distract herself by hosting a family party to reveal she was having a girl. My dad was jumping open down like he was so heavy, he said. He was in the garage and cried a little bit, cried partly out of relief. He told her the world wasn't safe for black boys. Midwife Rebecca Polston. Here's that often. Holsten started roots community birth center five years ago to offer women more support than a traditional hospital. Clinic defied the odds in five years on Lee. One client has had a preterm birth, she says. That's because the clinic addresses trauma. Some of the things that we explore is not finding out the sex. Of their baby because the stress that it brings when you find out that you're having a black sun. That kind of stress, she says, is palpable all around her. After George Floyd's death, Colston says she confronted a group of white men flying Confederate flags three blocks away. She closed the birthing center for a week. But the threat, she says, isn't just from outsiders. Once an elderly neighbor fainted nearby, Polston and her staff rushed to help and the police came up with their hands on their guns saying, What are you doing to us while we're taking blood pressure clearly healthcare providers those Interactions where those who you call for help. May not come to help you but come to harm you shadows every aspect of one's life and it becomes especially acute when you're in your birthing phase of your life. That rings true for coming Love Valenzuela. I don't know how to explain it, but I feel like that trauma is just in my body balance way Low is a doula. Originally from Chile Four years ago, she went into early labor. On her way to the hospital. Police pulled her over for driving with high beams on she told him. him. I I have have an an emergency. emergency. I'm I'm pregnant pregnant and and he he stops stops me. me. I I need need to to see see your your driver's driver's license license and and registration. registration. So So I'm I'm scrambling, scrambling, shaking. shaking. Just remembering makes like my heart beagle so fast. She was scared and her contractions intensified. She says he'd be raided her ticketed her and insisted she keep the windows rolled down its frigid cold. I'm crying my tears or freezing as they're coming down because it's so cold. Her baby survived. But this spring, Valenzuela nearly died giving birth to her second child. She blames her earlier encounter with police because my uterus had worked so hard, potentially from this previous Drama. I actually had an acute hemorrhage. Two months later, George Floyd died about a mile away. She's still haunted that he called out for his mother as he died. So, too, is researcher Rachel Hardiman. You know, when George plaids yelled for his mama and summon all mothers, Hardman stands just a few feet from where he was killed. It's just so painful. You know, this'd why do the work that I do is so that every mom gets to have a healthy baby and Have a good life. She's expanding her research nationally to keep digging into the connections between police violence and its impact on mothers and their babies.

Thurman is the first feature length documentary film on the life and wisdom of one of the world's greatest spiritual treasures Howard Thurman was born in Eighteen Ninety nine and died in nineteen eighty-one. He was born in Daytona Florida and he was raised by his grandmother because his father died when he was seven years old and his mother went to work his grandmother was a young woman during the civil war and she was born in slaved on a plantation station in northern Florida Thurman went to High School in Jacksonville then he went to morehouse college in Atlanta from there he went to study at the seminary in Rochester Rochester Mr Theological seminary he went back to Morehouse to be a professor he was in charge of the chapel on the Dean there of the chapel.

The people who listen to this show who want to live contemporary give whole limes also be involved in the important issues of our day in activism awesome and be route have a rooted center and connection that is rich with other people. I'm going to be in contact with scholars of Howard Thurman including Dr Loretta Coleman Brown in an upcoming episode and make sure that a wider variety of people a new generation and people outside of scholarship are where of his work and of are aware of the kind of life and spirituality the in spiritual practice that was part of his life and part of his legacy as you listen to to excerpts in this episode. I hope you will appreciate his deliberateness business in his speech in his manner. I hope you will soak these in listen to them more than one time. I hope you'll appreciate the music which is part of the traditional Negro spiritual there was also utilized in the civil rights movement in nineteen sixty s because our world is still unjust because they're still systematic racism in an equality and the plight of people of Color is still great in the United States in around the world old. We need these teachings of Howard Thurman and the mystics now more than ever to keep the water of the wells of our spirit full enriching alive so we. We have the resilience and the power sourced in the divine for what it takes for the long haul to make sure the justices served for the least of these for the poor and the with disenfranchised and I hope that as I include more of Howard Thurman and include more of his life in his work and his ideas that you will come into a greater appreciation of them and be able to to absorb these concepts in these notions and these ways into your own life blessed.

"He's very active, and there's no way that he's not a better fighter foam when you fought Keith the first time to now. So at this point. Yes, you have to go Keith Thurman, which struggle would every even Manny patio. Yeah. Because nothing arguing say Manny pack, you could be the super even it doesn't have the boat in keep there could be the regular champion. Well, here here's really gotta speak with filling. True superchief, Jack is the truth. Who says yo Mario kief was the one with the braids? That's funny. Listen, listen. I'm not going to need a Anita. Do I need to clarify my statement here because I hear what necessary now he's making sense. The I think the problem is that everything I said needed to be preloaded with the fact that I never thought Thurman was the best welterweight. I always thought he was somewhat of a flawed fighter in in not that he doesn't have talent. But he does make mistakes. So I saw the version of Thurman that was as good as could be expected with that off. But it told him don't think that there's a version of Thurman that is better than Crawford. I don't think that there's a version of Thurman that is better than real spins. I not sure that there's a version of Thurman that is better than pack Yale right now. But I certainly don't think that there's ever. Been version of Thurman or ever will be aversion determined that will be better than Paki out, it pack outs prods Thurman fits into the welterweight vision of very weird kind of spot where he had a I wouldn't say a stranglehold over the division. But at some point he was the clear number one, or at least close to the clear number one win many win Floyd Mayweather let. Okay. But I always thought he was biding his time always off their Earl Spencer would get there. I always thought these guys would get there. I even think Amir Khan gives them trouble. Okay. So all of these things to be said about him. They need to be put into perspective. That's the biggest thing is Thurman isn't as disappointing to someone who was already never the most impressed with him. But I felt like he did a lot of great things last night. I feel like he gave back a showed a grit and determination strength that we maybe had seen from before. But under the circumstances. Whereas a little bit better though at the same even me because the thing is when you say all. That the flip side is who has allegedly the best resume at one forty seven who took Danny Garcia's. Oh, who defended his target Shawn porter in neck in that fight which some people still figure. Shawn porter one is still very understandable that teach thermal one, and there's no debate that he won Zo at that point. He showed levels. But at that time, you know. I want him away may whether we wanted certain fighters, and at this point, we are now curious where he goes, which makes the most financial sense and get some back into better fighting contention. We know where he's going Ron you heard. Look, I it ma- excuse me. A Florida's not ready to give Manny a shot while it's it's probably gonna be Thurman in men. I hope he isn't ready 'cause I would love to see Thurman Paco and others. Don't want to people in to overlook all the the different variables in component. There were coming into government also years this got caught with a buddy shot back. A lot of people get called chain Moseley come off a Mayweather, Madonna. Come may, whether doesn't mean that the the guy's gonna not be who he would. I mean, people get in fights is a fight north in the bucks that you go thirty six minutes to around you're going to get caught sooner or later, but he so the heart of a champion man, he came out, and I don't expect to see him be this bad in next. I respect to see more of the rain rain Russ come off in him. Look like the keep terminent abo- one of Ron's videos be active burrow because now with an injured injury..
