"Because blacks don't get placed in ap classes at the same level that whites do and so all of these are complexities and these areas and things that have to be dealt with even in public education as we look at these various curricula and these various activities my hope areas and with your help with the help of others my hope. Is you know that that my book in mine counter with racism in the forbidden word an american classic would be taught alongside adventures of huckleberry finn. Yeah you know there's we're gonna yeah. So i'm i'm kind of going you mark to help advance. Theft have advanced that these were just mentioned the young man who's mothers in the ad i guess in the campaign ad yung-chen the republican nominee in virginia for virginia governor. Released apparently is An attorney and he was in he was even attorney now but he was a kid in the class and he was having night terrors from reading beloved in toni. Morrison's in a toni. Morrison's book in school and it has now come out to your point that he was an an ap student as a matter of fact So yes but they were reading tony morrison in ap class yeah the ap the ap classes are designed for white people. And that's who they put in most of them they. That's that's who they put in. These classes will be interested in the who the teacher was year. And i don't have the school added looked at it but yet but so folks. Tony morrison who defended us reading mark twain Not a- non-critically though is the gut. Republican governor Canyon virginia wants to ban it but yet huckleberry fans okay and as our guest has said that also should not be cheaters. Toni morrison and not be rea- non critically if anything. We need to be re huckleberry fan with a toni. Morrison's essay beside it and this new book in might encounter with racism in the forbidden word in american classic. The bottom line is classics in the white cannon. They never go away the always there they stand alone it you know i mean at some point life goes on while they still classics When you you in law school when you an attorney you have to go to. Doctors have to get continuing medical education. But there's no review of these classics. And how they presented. There's no renewal. We keep presenting them the same way and that has gotten us as a society. That's the question before it's and my guest is raising that question. Dr james henry harris folks check out the book in my encounter with racism and the forbidden word in an american classic. My guest has been much love to you and the faculty and the students and the entire virginia union community specter in especially doctor.

"So would you argue that this book foot because was what made it so popular. You would argue. That's the only reason it was popular. And therefore it maybe it should not be as valued or as classical as as people would argue for it to be. Well have to be a little careful. Only because playing is a pretty good. You know twain is a pretty good writer aside from that he is a pretty good writer and he does he. He can turn a phrase and so forth but at the same time malcolm it is that essentially because of the inherent negatively that is associated with the word nigger the book in it of its the book also not only embolden but almost justified white america's use of the terminology even though the american usage was a reflection of what was going on every single day. And i think twain picked up on that and tapped into into the culture. Even though of huckleberry finn is in fact about more than that as well i mean it is about. Is you know. It's a critique of religion it's a secretary of classism and it's a critique of of white people as well but i might monument is that twain because he could he could be in both worlds. I think he took advantage of that and capitalize on it. You mentioned tony morrison and again folks. The governor the gubernatorial candidate would ban toni. Morrison's books and you know there. Is this conversation going on on fox news about the discomfort white folks white students would feel having to leigh tony morrison and talk about critical race theory and talk about race. That would make them feel harming uncomfortable. Which tony morrison said about huckleberry finn. And i'm going to paraphrase is that she sought to quote release huckleberry finn from the clutch of submittal nostrums about lighting out for the territory and instead revive its contest. Dettori combative critique of ante. Bellum america the hell it puts the reader through is exactly toni. Morrison's point the novel produces and reproduces palpable alarm. And and that that would be a good thing she even wrote it..

McAuliffe Hopes Joe Biden Can Spark Struggling Campaign

"So America, Joe Biden, you go out there and vote for Terry mccaul and Joe Biden after last night's rally. There was a, quote, rally. Let me show you a couple of pictures, put up by our friend Mac. Here is the CBS picture of the rally that the president did with Terry mcauliffe in Virginia last night. If you're watching on YouTube, you can see that picture. I don't see it yet, so maybe it's stuck in the ether. But it looks like a good crowd. You don't even think, wow, wow, the president may have more hustle than we think. Maybe he's really good at it. Then you pan out. There's the first picture. That's the CBS News picture. Then you pan out, and they've taken over one corner of one tiny park in Virginia across the river from The White House. And they basically rounded up the locals and shuffled them into maybe 300 people there. That 300 people Dwayne, do you think that's 300 people? I'm not sure that that's 300 people. But the president, though, is simply out to lunch on this stuff. Here he is, last night, talking about blend young and who has clearly got the Democrat scared to death of winning an upset that would be an earthquake in America. Cut number 17. Jesse look how he's closing his campaign. He's gone from banning a woman's right to choose to banning books written by a Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize winning author. Toni Morrison. So if you talk about love, by the way, which I just finished recently and he's talking about not banning books, but about allowing parents to know which books are being read in what their messages are beloved as a fine book for teenagers to read and I'm sure glad you can would agree with that. But if you have to start what you're attacking opponent is saying, then you're responding to attacks two days before an election with a weak and unpopular president in a tiny park with nobody in it. And that means Terry mcauliffe is sucking air because people don't like Joe Biden

I don't i and i'm curious if babies born during a water birth if the water itself washes away some of the microbiome or is there some if the mother passes stool while she's pushing the amniotic fluid is leaking into the water.

"Okay so for people who have finished reading this book and they're looking for more. What would you recommend they check out next. If you're a fan of using of like black creators using alternative genres to like tell. The stories of african americans the show atlanta by donald. Glover on hulu is a really good and really weird. Kind of surrealist is the best way to describe it about a black man in atlanta. Trying to make it as a rapper and one of his friends played by keith. Stanfield who i'm a. I'm a big fan of all of work. He's just kind of always in this other dimension in just he's never quite there and he'll say these things on you're just like what and the plot is very surrealist. It's it's very bizarre show but really really well written. And then if you're gonna read another tony morrison book i would say try tar baby Similarly more toni morrison she has so much out there. That beloved is actually the first part in what is referred to as a trilogy. the characters don't continue at similar themes so i'm intrigued. How it got dubbed the trilogy. If that was morrison's doing or publishers but the two books that came after beloved where jazz and paradise. So if you're looking to continue in this very similar vein stick with those and then otherwise We've talked on the podcast before about friday black. It's a short story collection by nana kwami agyei brenna which uses horror to talk about the black experience in america. And oh off time ahead. I just remembered her body in other parties. Some of the stories in that as well our horror to talk about the expense of women and that is by carmen. Maria machado's the author of that collection. Okay changing all the gears shifting to a completely different dimension what are things that are bringing joy lately what are you. Currently obsessed with recently discovered the album american boyfriend by kevin abstract. It's an older one. He's from the boy group. Brock hampton which. I'm not a huge fan of. But i really love kevin. Abstract sola work. And then atypical season. Three is out on netflix. I have not watched yet. But i am about to and then today as of this moment what. I'm currently obsessed with is a new story from the olympics about the two top. High jumpers wants from qatar and once from italy. And they both like keep one upping each other and keep matching each other until there's one height that neither of them can jump and so they like just give each other a big hug and like decide to share the gold medal. This it's so adorable. I'm i'm obsessed with it. And they both look so happy end Hugging it's great. I'm like if this was all of what the olympics was. I would be down. So i recently moved out of our old apartment. A now. i severely downsized in a positive way. so was getting rid of a bunch of things had a whole stack of these graphic. Tees that i love the look of the front of in the design on it like they're all like longer or kind of boxy or like just like i don't wear them as much and have been really into crop up slightly so i took a note from literally everyone who's been doing this since like twenty ten in like cutting t shirts but i just got up a bunch of my old graphic tees into crops and it's great i feel like i have a whole new wardrobe and yeah it's awesome. I've been wearing all these shirts that i've been linked buried away including my Super metal looking current punishment t shirt on my god. it's so fun and lawrence.

"I don't like seek it out. But like you know intellectually. I appreciate why it exists. Said what it does and so i kind of the lens that we wanted to take to like understand this novel so being the prolific researchers that we are we googled elements of horror to kind of walk through what defines the horror genre specifically the cow more than us so of course. We found things like suspense and monsters and unsettling qualities something. That's a mystery all these different things to kind of like add up to what makes it scary as well as some kind of straightforward plotlines like as horror dot. Fm refers to as the complex discovery plot. So you start out with the onset or existence of a horrific event says evidence of it Discovering it's 'cause confirmation of its cause in then confrontation that leads to either victory or defeat depending on how you look at it. So those kind of elements we see and it's not like a one. Plus one equals horror. Miss all these elements together and you have a you know a pulitzer prize. Winning novel obviously morrison is doing a lot here via. Let's say let's start out with this style and how tony morrison is approaching horror. Yeah like for me. The first thing that tipped me off that this wasn't just regular historical fiction was her style of writing she's got this very like it's very melodic artsy but in like a really creepy way. It's like really other worldly. Like i was saying reading it kind of felt like a dream like something that happened to a different version of me like the way her prose is just really. I guess bizarre. In like the literary sense you know of being kind of outside of the norm her her sentences kind of move around a lot and she uses punctuation. Sometimes she does end. She moves between quotation and thought similar to wolf actually in a way where she moves in between people's minds in a way that never you never quite sure where you're at physically like a creepy version of mrs dalloway with murder plus murder. I think the jumping around in time part that you mentioned like who's point of view. Are we seeing this from. That's are really likes. threw me off. I think.

I have had this book on our collective shelf for quite some time. Yeah i feel like this book has such a story to it beyond beyond the story between pages or between the covers. It's our book child. It's our book child. Julia was visiting me in cambridge. What we were both studying abroad in england and there was a big street festival on mill. Road that we went to and there was a bookshop that on the street they had a whole stand with these wrapped books like presence and for like two pounds or something cheap. You could just pick up any of them and it was a surprise. You rapid juliana. I being broke college. Students who also had limited luggage space said. Let's get one book together so we both chipped in and we picked up a book. I mean you can go to eyeball what kind of book you're gonna get. I like my friend. Got the recipe cookbook. in hers. Because she's like this was like small and hard buck that's cool But we you know went for the generic fiction. Size paperback now. Yeah and it turned out to be beloved by toni. Morrison so the the addition that we've read is actually the uk printing. I wait really. Yeah i mean the covers. Got a quote from the guardian.

"Are things that i will never forget About those those trips. I worshipped my grandmother. And i don't think i've ever read a story that reminds me of that time in my life or the people i mean the voices of the folks in this story i i know these people i i. I knew where they come from. I know what their hopes are their dreams. I know these people and and the other thing about this story is that it is rare for me. And i'd have to look very closely into my memory. Banks to find us another story that has as its protagonist. A young boy. Who looks like me. When i was a boy and i am so grateful to toni. Cade bombarda for giving me this gift. Because when i think about the story that she is written here it feels me with a sense of home. Not the home. I grew up in sacramento. But i'll mommy's house now if you've never been to sacramento and especially if you've never been to the sacramento train station The train station is quite amazing. It's one of those like old buildings. I don't know when it was built but it's brick and it's solid And beautiful and so we'd get on the train. My mom i two sisters to myself and my mom would've cooked and we the people on the train with shoe boxes and fried chicken and it and it was great boiled eggs and you know we would go to the dining car maybe wants you know for lunch. But for the most part we would eat the food we brought and the the great thing for me was that i had the run of the train. I had permission from my mother to go anywhere on that train. 'cause she knew i couldn't go anywhere right and so am sure you know this about trains. All of the porters were black men and and that was another reason why my mother had no worries because they all had checked on her right single mom black mother three kids and they looked after us. They were strangers. But they weren't. They didn't act like stranger. They acted like uncles right. I mean i remember spending time in their presence in just sitting and listening to these men talk and it was it was wonderful Because they were a different experience for me. My contact with black men was rare right. I mean i went to catholic schools. we lived in an all white neighborhood. I just didn't have a lot of black men in my life. My mom and dad had been divorced for years so being in the presence of these men was like it was like nothing i had experienced before. Now i've told you of that to tell you this when we finally get to kansas city on these trips My grandparents were there and my grandmother died many years ago In fact she died The year that roots came out. And of course we. We went back to kansas city for the funeral. My mom and my two sisters. And and and i and i was Blindsided by when we got to the church the streets were lined with people not dec- my grandmother off but they were there. Because i was there and that just took me out because you know this was all very new to me and and it was just it. I remembered as as a very change day. I was in my grandmother's church for the first time she and my grandfather were. Founding members of that church was a church that she had gone to Most of her adult life and then there was this other thing that was going on and it i didn't know how to handle it And so when we got back to amami and papi's house My uncle's just sort of took me And they took me downstairs to poppies rec room where he had a bar and all. My uncles drank scotch. At the time i was drinking. I think i dunno rum and coke but they they wouldn't by any room from me they said if i was gonna drink them that i had to drink what they drank. And i i said okay. But what i felt was the was the arms of my family wrapping themselves around me on a day when when their mother and their mother in law was being laid to rest they wrap their arms around me. And.

"Or you can just begin here. Because i'm always honored to read one of the greats on the podcast getting to read. Tony morrison the few seasons ago was just magical for me. And i'm so pleased today to be able to read something from one of her friends and colleagues the writer filmmaker professor and civil rights activist. Toni cade bambara whom the world lost to cancer back in one thousand nine hundred five. Ms bambara brooklyn harlem in bed stuy in queens and in jersey city and her greatest influence and inspiration was her mother who was in civil service and whom she credits with allowing her to daydream and explore her mind. It also can't hurt that. She grew up in harlem in the nineteen forties reading in the library. Next to langston hughes her work explores collective change it centers. The voices of other black women and it up lifts the voices of all members of a community including children. Miss membre wrote a novel called the salt eaters and a number of short stories including the collection gorilla. My love peace. i'm reading to you. Today comes from a collection of essays and stories that was published posthumously and was edited by toni morrison the collection is entitled deep sightings and rescue missions published by vintage books an imprint of doubleday publishing group. The story is called the war of the wall. It's written from the perspective of a child. A smart opinionated feisty child who sees an outsider enter his community. Miss bombonera described herself as a child who loved talking to strangers and spend a lot of time listening to the folks in the barbershop or the beauty parlor talk. And it really shows in this story in the specificity of the characters that she draws. So if you're ready that's take a deep breath..

Baylor Or Houston, Who Looked Better?

"Toss up. Who looked more impressive last night or baylor baylor to me houston had a big lead and they let it slip away and they won the game so good for them but baylor looks better and better to me every game that they play date. They were sat down for about three weeks. I think they missed on corona virus protocols and they lost a game maybe their second game back against kansas but now that they play with regularity they just looked better all the time to me. There veterans they're juniors and seniors. They're composed they can take you off the dribble. They can win games. And i think we're going to get to the point.

Paul Tudor Jones on Bitcoin and the Future of Digital Currency

"Can we talked about inflation for sec at. I know you're you wrote this letter back in. May and i will promise it. I know you're not a flagbearer for bitcoin. By any means but you did have a fascinating thesis would love to kind of get an update on that especially at current levels and higher thinking about the crypto currency in the context of your portfolio. I'm on an expert. On bitcoin by any stretch is just what the market cap of five hundred billion. It's it's the wrong market cap in a world where you've got ninety dollars worth of equity market cap and got us how many trillions of fiat currency et cetera. So it's the wrong market cap for instance relative to goal which is eight or nine trillion. The bitcoin reminds me so much of the internet stocks. Nine hundred ninety nine because the internet was in its infants infancy. No one knew how to value it because of the world possibility that lay ahead. Would you can be certain of. Is that probably twenty years from now. our kids and grandkids would our all of us will be using some type of digital currency digital currency will be Will be used by every sovereign. They may have their own digital currency. Whatever they'll be very very very commonplace at that point in time cash may be gone and so in that world. Where does bitcoin finian As well as some of the other cryptocurrencies. Where does it theory him. Or tattered i kind of i. I don't know i'm not smart enough to figure that out. I think The bitcoin if i if i really had to kind of guess what the future's going to be it's going to be a lot like the metals complex where you have precious cryptovest might be bitcoin. It's the first crypto first-mover world that so compressed it has that historical integrity within digital currencies. That it will always have so that might again because of its fight supply. That might be the precious crypto. Then you're gonna have transactional cryptocurrencies along with the britain's and they may be more like the industrial industrial metal. So where you have goals of precious metal you got copper platinum palladium and sarah that are industrial led aluminum industrial metals. You may have precious crip. Toni may have industrial crypto. So what i do know is that it's no way passable today to know what the next ten or twenty years you're going to be like and i know that if i was if i had again taken position on i'm gonna i'm gonna take the brand name. Which is bitcoin. I'm going to assume that it's the wrong prize for the possibilities that it has And i'm going to assume that the path forward from here is north and again we had no idea in nine hundred and had a had a how the internet was gonna sort out and there were some companies that obviously do phone nine nine. Despite the crash came that did just incredibly well and ended up becoming dominant players in the world. That's what's going to my guess is that's what we're going to sort through that kind of crazy competition winners. Losers at cetera in the digital

Thanks daniel think we might start off with you know so in about two thousand and one is when you you got sick. I believe in and seems. Then you've found inspiration in buddhist teachings and practices for learning how to be sick and we're gonna get into that in detail. But i wondering if you could tell us a little bit about how you initially came across these teachings and actresses okay. Well it was an about ten years before. I got sick so approaching thirty years. This may is nineteen year of my suffering from chronic ghana's so when i was in my early twenties i developed some interest in spiritual matters a lot of alan watts. I got my mantra from the maharishi. And then my husband. And i raised kids. All of that was put aside and when they Either late high school or had left home. When i had my wartime to myself. I started Looking back into spiritual practices and maybe only academic would do this. I bought like six copies of the dow teaching. Maybe five and i read the same verse in each one and then wrote my on verse based on my understanding of those translations and i have no idea were any of that is but it's relevant because one of the translations was by stephen mitchell and i found myself it was a great translation but i've found myself really interested in the footnotes because he can't there may have been some other people but he noted several times quoted this Somebody called master sung son. Who i subsequently learned was a korean zen master who when he first arrived in the states. I was fixing washing machines but then developed a Songa in providence rhode island and now is worldwide. His quantum school is in. And i just love the the quote senate came across one that that said no south. No problem i thought whoa. Whoa sounds no problem. I didn't know what it meant. But i also note was jam. He fascinated me so much. These footnotes that i went to the library at uc davis campus shields library and it went to the card catalogue and looked up sung sun and discovered that in the dr day basement of shields library were rows and rows of buddhist books and i found his dropping ashes on the buddha but i found a treasure trove and i started leading mostly tree traditions zen tibetan and tear baden. I couldn't get enough. Just taking him out piles and That's how i. I learned a lot about the buddhist teachings but i thought what am i supposed to do and so i wrote just stephen mitchell and i don't remember what i said but i remember what he wrote back to me. He said looking at an painting of an orange is not the same as eating orange. And then he recommended to possible dharma centers that i could go to from. I live in davis which is near sacramento so that central valley and they were both in marin county bay. Area was john. Toronto sonoma's zen center. I think and the other one was called spirit rock meditation center and he recommended jack cornfield and i don't remember why i chose that have no. I've just been thinking. How did i get there.

"Of the other writers that Toni Morrison supported Alan from sunset beach Toni Morrison was the person who really brought the work of Henry to moss to lie after his death he was a black writer who was killed by transit New York City police officer decades ago but he rode off into the computation of of blacks and whites in America and so his work it's been discussed recently he's also been called I think the blackest trader by some X. African American writing but she was really largely responsible for bringing his work to my after he died then I can you talk a bit more about Toni Morrison as a mentor for black writers and other people they even academics yeah I think it's important to think about her in that regard because there are correspondences between her and Toni Cade Bambara for instance and bombards justice through the incredible writer she's deceased now but she was also very close friends with miss Morrison and the correspondence between the two of them it's I mean it's just laugh out loud funny in some instances a Morrison would say for instance that she didn't have to do a line and it's FOR Bambara because she would think faster than she could write she sender away to do something and she come back really quickly and then more as Bambara conversely would say you know I really appreciate all the work that you do I'm sorry but I probably should get an agent you know because Morrison was literally doing the agent work and the editor work and the friend work and in some instances making sure that she had a typist may letting her stay at her place if you needed to be in New York to get something done very quickly another writer that she worked with very closely probably on forest similarly had a tremendous amount of respect for her and was very clear that he would not have been published had it not been for Toni Morrison who interestingly enough simply pick up the phone to say hello when he called saying Hey someone suggested that you know they couldn't understand my book but that you would and that is the kind of person that she was on to receive those more challenging text Tom as we have heard her say about you know jokingly about beloved that's call reading when you have to read something over and over again it's really reading I think it's critical to understand the significance of that kind of relationship to have someone who could read your work closely and to understand it and to make sure that it was championed in those rooms where editors were making decisions about whether to give a book a contract or not I'm very often she spoke for Gail Jones who was something of a recluse who refused to promote her own books but Morrison was so enamored by Gail Jones is full body of work that in that particular instance she said you know I need you to go out and do the promotions but if you want I can still sell this book anyway so she was incredibly generous to as an editor Cecelia emailed us Toni Morrison wasn't enlightened figure and I believe one of if not the most profound writers we have had the privilege to have benefited from I am a white woman with blue eyes the bluest eye was the first book of hers I read it was the first time I ever felt such resonance from an author and I felt that she was telling my inner story even though it was a different manifested physicality the feeling of being unlovable due to some perceived ugliness shame X.

would you describe what what a night out together with twenty more some would have been like well it would have been it would have been drink and then he said and then drink five who smoked she was sought after by the men and the women she was a single mom to like she had to she had two small children at the time of our children and a friend of mine used to babysit for her she's come and the Manhattan she'd go to Random House and so that was real rabid where was soon so many people know of of Tony Morrison as an author but she was an an editor for a really long time at penguin Random House who's your editor at one point I and she was an incredibly important editor she published black women writers like Gail Jones in the late Toni Cade varices credited with that with Angeli Davis to write her autobiography rate she's behind important collection of of writing on African literature and she had she was she had said that that she wanted to to give something back that she wasn't marching she didn't go to anything should this is a quote her discussing her Random House a she said I want to give back something I wasn't marching I didn't go to anything I didn't join anything but I could make sure there's a published record of those who did March and did put themselves on the line did you have the feeling when you're working with her as an editor that that that that was an incredibly important part of what she wanted to accomplish in her work there was a very important part of part of her her life and I learned motor was like every time we got together it was like a day long post graduate seminar and it came and writing and literature talking about letters here moss and handled Pandyan and Mars and was could be severe sometimes you know she made swerve I'm doing of Charlotte did you ever make swift and doing of of you is it was it hard to have arisen her anytime at times it was difficult issue with all that she said that offense she told me she said I'm I'm I'm hard to that the women in my family they're hard it is hard for men to to stick with me to be with me yeah we're all we're hard women and she remains the hard Scrabble in though she did she she grew up poor she meant she didn't take any and a lot of man who went there thinking they were gonna conquer one way or the other left packing you know was sent packing that was Tony taunted Tony with no nonsense and that's the way she wrote I mean the issue is not an easy read as it wasn't easy as an addict you know shoes very severe I was a young teacher you know and I had a couple of degrees and an English but I still haven't edited books right and sometimes we we clash there one of the things that I recognize was that she her consciousness outpace most of the people around her which you know he hurt her consciousness outpaced most people around her what do you mean by that well she just was she was very poor no she had rare gesture faucetdirect she had ray and you know the the the the the black women writers that people who would take it would take for granted today that my my daughter's read them all those who have a PhD in the fall but every ticket because thanks Sir Marcin and and others you know those those writers were brought into our living rooms so a lot of her influences on non literary African architecture anthropology archaeology that's what so so major about her is that she literally had created a fall on while she was writing it that's so beautifully put she created a form of already and never be another March Marcin invented and perfect something at the same time Eugene thank you so.
