Cowboys Kicker Misses Two Field Goals in Dramatic Loss to Buccaneers

"I i don't think there's any way of getting around at the tonight. A loser for the dallas cowboys. Is greg zero line. Let's let's your thoughts your thoughts on greg's Let's see here one second. This is a hectic night. Obviously greg line just amber says. I'm so mad right now on facebook. i'm with you. I get this. You know an anthony says not the same defense Tony says push off definitely a push off there at the end cowboys losing. Because the buccaneers drive. If somehow missed the game drive at the very kick a game winning field goal which just about no time remaining cowboys. defense can't stop them in the cowboys. Defense i will say kind of was a little bit of the same old defense. We didn't get you know a defense that was just allowing the bucks going on and on and on and on but this defense did get four turnovers tonight. But if we examine those turnovers. I think the only real authentic one was the demarcus lawrence forced fumble demarcus. Lawrence is definitely a winner tonight. I think demarcus lawrence was awesome. But the first interception the cowboys had the trayvon digs on was a tipped ball. Off of leonard fournette. Yes that counts. Yes that's true. Yes that count statistically but you know that's not necessarily your defense making a play on the ball cowboys also got an interception on. Tom brady at the end of the first half throwing a hail. Mary trying something before the half. That isn't really count. Although jordan lewis certainly had valiant effort trying to run that back and get some points You know the last turnover. The one that kind of turned the game around a little bit. That gave the cowboys. an opportunity. There at the very end Was just kinda. Chris godwin you know running into devante. Casey's helmet those things aren't necessarily You know something. You can replicate on a week by week basis and so for that reason. It's hard to give the cowboys credit. For all of those turnovers it was a different type of performance at the exact same defense we. I think we definitely saw some improvements. I think that mike parsons played moderately. Well i think that demarcus lawrence has mentioned played while randy gregory was on things But this was. I mean man. What a rough game for anthony

Critical Race Theory: What Is It?

"Is critical Race theory? Yes. So critical Race theory began around the 19 seventies with the law professor Derrick Bell and a couple of other legal scholars trying to understand the ways. That race and American law intersected how history of slavery and segregation was sort of codified and continue to influence American law Today. Adam Harris is a staff writer at the Atlantic. His most recent article was titled The GOP S Critical Race Theory Obsession, Harris says. One of the first instances we started to see critical race theory being used as a political bludgeon was in the early 19 nineties, President Bill Clinton nominated Atlantic near to the Justice Department. She was a legal scholar who done a lot of work and voting rights and conservatives effectively used her previous work in voting rights to sort of tag her as someone who was arguing for racial quotas in voting for the amount of seats that people should hold on city councils. They also tagged her as championing a radical school of thought. Called Critical Race Theory. Amid mounting pressure from conservatives, President Clinton has withdrawn his nomination of Lani Guinier to head up the Justice Department's civil rights division, claiming veneers writings lent themselves to views that he could not embrace the president cut her loose rather than fight a divisive battle on Capitol Hill. From there you have A kind of dormant period. It's not really until after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Trayvon Martin, the Jesse Jackson like race profiteer race grievance industry says everything's about race. America's a racist nation. You see a mention of critical race theory after a video surfaces of President Barack Obama hugging Derek Bell in 1990, you know When he was a law student at Harvard Law. The president is actually kind of aligning himself here with a well known campus radical. There is a conservative back last thing that he believes in this radical critical race theory. And then they're a kind of a couple of mentions up until 2020 shortly after George Floyd is murdered, You start to see a

Why Nursing Homes' COVID-19 Legal Shields May Interfere With Other Cases

"You listen to podcasts. In twenty seven states nursing homes have gotten special legal protections during the covid nineteen pandemic that means in most cases families can't sue if someone they love got sick or died at one the nursing home say they're doing the best they can and they need those legal shields but that also may stop people whose injuries have nothing to do with covid from seeking justice in the courts. Noel talked with. Npr's jaffe been looking into this. Why were these laws passed in the first place. You remember that. The corona virus outbreak started as far as most people were aware in a nursing home and currently long term care facilities account for more than a third of all deaths from covid nineteen nursing homes were caught scrambling for personal protective equipment. They were shifting recommendations of how contagious disease was and the industry made a case that they shouldn't be held responsible for dealing with this moving target. Are there any lawsuits pending against nursing homes relating to covid or did these immunity laws. Basically finish them off. While there is one in durham north carolina. It's questioned whether it's related to covid. Possibly it's the first of its kind involves the death of a woman named palestine house. Her daughter lisa set her. Mother's death had nothing to do with corona virus. Her mother had a pressure ulcer or bedsores there commonly known she'd had it since december of twenty eighteen and it just got worse. It became infected. Lisa how said she begged traber and rehabilitation center. Send her mother to the emergency room but they assured us that they could handle it. Lisa house and her three sisters had their doubts and their experience traber and rehabilitation center. Didn't seem to be able to handle much on a scale of one to five stars. The federal government gives traber and just one it also gets below average ratings on the ratio of nurses to residence. The government has find traber. Almost one hundred ninety thousand dollars in the past three years. We were there a lot and we found ourselves having to bathe her just general things they were supposed to do. We'd come in several times when she hadn't been fed her just sitting there. The house sisters hadn't had a lot of luck with nursing homes. In general trae burn was the third one they tried. It was close to where they live so the sisters could visit often but it hardly mattered. One families were locked out of nursing homes in march. Everything got harder and took longer. Palestine house needed specialists in wound care and iv antibiotics. Lisa house had her mother's power of attorney again. She begged trae burn rehabilitation to send her mother to the emergency room where they could find the specialists. She needed again. She was turned down their excuses. Were well the hospitals not taking new patients because of covert and she would be safer she stayed here and the facility is equipped to take care of your mother and none of those things turned out to be true. Palestine house died a train rehabilitation center on april fourteenth. Twenty twenty one month later. North carolina passed a sweeping liability shield for long term care facilities. The nursing homes with rare exceptions were immune from lawsuits. The measure was made retroactive to march tenth. Lisa house and her sisters decided to suit rayburn. Anyway elizabeth todd is their attorney. Palestine house did not have to die in that way or at that time and for the legislature to say that the nursing homes need protection in the middle of a pandemic not the nursing. Home patients is outrageous and it's unjust north carolina's immunity law lasts until the pandemic is over. Todd is especially worried that the law gives the free past nursing homes with low staffing trayvon and so literally the nursing homes can take their own understaffing their chronic understaffing and use it as a shield to prevent any liability at all during the covid pandemic through their attorneys train. Rehabilitation center declined comment but for many in the long term care industry. These immunity measures are welcome. Relief says dave voelpel. Ceo of the zona healthcare association. Arizona governor doug ducey was among the first to sign an executive order granting nursing homes and assisted living facilities legal immunity and for that we apart him. Because that just takes a little bit of pressure off. Though paul says it allows facilities to focus on what's most important we need to worry about. Keeping covert out of the building that sometimes that cuts into the bottom line says bubble take for instance one hundred bed building and they really have fifty rooms two beds per room that to keep infection from spreading those double rooms may have to be converted to private rooms. So revenue is cut in half. It really takes its toll on the business side of the ledger. Long term care facilities face a crisis if existential proportions says mark reagan the attorney for the california association of health facilities that's because liability insurance are excluding things covert when they renew policies which would mean that any claims made regarding covert infection would be subject to exclusion and no insurance coverage congressional. Republicans wanted a national immunity law but dropped as part of the deal for the latest coronavirus. Relief package reagan. Still has hopes what we're merely asking for is stats caregivers. And their employers. Don't get punished for doing the best that they could. Under the circumstances. I imagine that the family of palestine house doesn't in fact the nursing home was doing the best it could for their mother. Well right there attorney. Elizabeth todd points out that one of north carolina's immunity criteria is that facility must be acting in good faith and she doesn't see how can argue that they did that. So where does

Chris Doering talks Florida and Georgia

"We welcome in chris during Who gives us her. Quite a look ahead to tomorrow's game. Chris in most years florida hosting lsu of the sec this week. It's been pretty quiet. I am curious as you know those two teams so well especially from florida side What what are they thinking as they get one of their bitter rivals in a bitter rival that they are a prohibitive favorite. It is weird. Isn't it paula. Me and thinking back to win. This game was originally scheduled. I thought most lsu people felt like we're gonna get a chance to play later in the year we'll get healthier. We'll get miles brennan back. We'll be in better position. And i would argue that. They're actually in a worse position now than when they were originally scheduled in october. So i it's kind of a weird dynamic with a lotta florida. Fans looking forward to sec. Championship game next weekend for me. This is all about. Florida has nothing to do with their opponent. Lsu it's about getting right offensively full full-fledged dress rehearsal right costumes everything. Let's go for what we're gonna do next week. I i honestly been kind of disappointed with florida's offensive performance. The last three weeks dating back to the vanderbilt came. Because they just look inconsistent. They look like they walk through a haze periods of time. They look like they're not executing and part of it's their own fault for looking so good against arkansas in the second half and missouri against georgia. We set the bar pretty high for them but focused level has not been there for a full sixty minutes. I want to see all fence. Get back to executing at the level. They were early in the year defensively. Let's get some things shored up. Let's figure out how to keep from giving up these long passing plays. Let's get generate some more pressure on the quarterback. Let's be able to to penetrate and stop the run something. I thought they did. Well against tennessee last week but The thing i'm gonna keep my paul. What are the numbers for. Kyle trask because obviously this is a game as you said against a A bitter rival one. That beat florida by fourteen. Last year florida's got a chance to return the favor but they also have a chance to outduel in back to back weeks what mack jones get did against the very same defense. And don't think that winning the heisman trophy is not something that dan mullen really wants. For contrast and something that will help his program significantly going forward in on that subject. How do you compare. Kyle trash to meg jones. And that's really his main competition now and that we know we know what had next two weeks especially next week but what what what what separates college trask. If anything well first of all. I love both of these guys you know as a former receiver. I love the the accuracy. I love the the the way they re defenses and get the ball to the right guy. On what the defense is dictating But i would go back and say kyle. Traffic is probably had a tougher. Time than what mack jones at and. That's not taking anything away. From mac ios but look at how. Good this offense of line is for alabama. Look at how well they've run the football over the last six games or so look at what. Najji harris has done. Devante smith the reason why iraq jones's numbers look so good on the deep passes over twenty yards and no disrespect. Mac has been really accurate. But when you're throwing a guy that's five yards behind the nearest defender. It makes it a little bit easier. So again i think without the run game florida certainly not able to run the football very well. I don't think they're offensive. Line is the most consistent So i think the load that kyle. Trask bears a little bit harder to to carry them. What jones does now with that being said. Look at the weapons of florida has i. I don't think i've ever been able to say at least in recent years. That florida has more receiving weapons around their quarterback than what alabama does. They've been absolutely loaded but Looking at the way that that not only kind of is utilized trayvon. Grimes justin shorter. All those receivers. Jacob copeland has come on as well Forgetting about tony. Who might be one of the biggest Factor mismatch guys in the sec. Right now but the way. They use the running backs as well. That was something that we saw against georgia so a lot of different guys. That are helping. Kyle trask out. But i think with the advantage that alabama has on the offensive line and that run game to complement the throws down the field. I think kyle may have a little bit more of a impressive Season just because of how much he's had to do himself chris. Couple of games. I want to ask you about one. Particular auburn at mississippi state mississippi state has been up and down we. We've been through that conversation. But i'm really curious about auburn. Because they've had some really good moments this year and then some clunkers especially lately. I know what you're doing here paul. You love it. When i go off on auburn and it's been up and down year with them right early in the season. I was really down on him. I was starting to get A little bit more positive with the way they were able to run the run the football figuring out who they were with take bixby and that offensive line and then they got hit with a bunch of injuries up front Bixby was was banged up.

Las Vegas Raiders face 'daunting task' with COVID-19 issues ahead of game vs. Kansas City Chiefs

"Kid city chiefs at eight point favorite leg. I said we'll get to that in a second on the road against the vegas raiders on this game. Fifty six and a half. We will have. John cheering on later. I'm sure he'll be able to explain whether slightly above the market pain. i have to believe. That's all covid related to be quite honest. The raiders defense in the contact tracing protocol. We're not quite sure. If i'm going to have to get called up to play safety and let me tell you my foot speed not enough to slow down tyreek hill and open spaces really wouldn't say i mean i might try and slew coming off the line. That'd be my only shot. so listen. I the raiders offensive game plan back in week five was good. Obviously but the halftime adjustments that. Paul guenther in the raiders. Defensively really is what i think won them the game. It's really what gave the chiefs offense trouble. You really hadn't seen that from the chiefs offense before during this. Patty mahomes like run especially against the defense of that caliber. You go back to week. Five in the second half. Kansas city was successful. Only twenty one percent of their snaps. One point to carry twenty eight percent success rate through their moms is pressured. A ton the raiders. Were able to do something in that game. They hadn't been able to do most of the season which is get pressure vegas. Twenty six on the season pass rush win rate and then obviously after a few good games. Recently where the raiders have been able to apply some pressure to quarterbacks. They've surged to an average defense in pressuring the week. Five game if you look at some of these numbers. Mahomes was pressured on forty. Seven percent of total dropbacks specifically from eleven personnel. Were kansas city. Essentially lives seventy three percent of the time moms pressured on fifty seven percent of those three wide sets. I would envision off the bye with the little extra motivation of not. Just losing to the raiders but but kansas city not being really happy about gruden and the gang taken victory laps around the the stadium there drivers using using the loudspeaker thereafter the week. Five win that Andy reid is probably gonna come with a pretty good game plan here and you know past the success that andy. Reid is hat off the bye. You mentioned this. The raiders are are probably going to be without a few key defenders but You know another handful of defensive players are going to miss practice all week due to this contact tracing. It's probably isn't the offense that you wanna face short handed in in pissed off and not having practiced to four. I would think. I also believe we'll probably see a little more play action for mandatory. You know patty mahomes in the chiefs past game will probably fair little bit. Better here with play action. Especially if if the pressure starts to barrel down. I would also think that it's worth mentioning that three chiefs offensive lineman or on the cova the list it's believed to be contact tracing but we'll have to see this certainly make this game a little bit different. If if all three of those offensive lineman are out. You also expect sammy. Watkins to return in this game us a full practice participant on wednesday so he should be a full ghost that they're gonna have their their complement of weapons out there. The number in this thing is is really interesting. But i think that this tougher makes a lot of sense. I i just don't see. Kansas city's offense not bouncing back here in a major way talk. i mean. They're playing with a chip on their shoulder. Which is always dangerous to begin with. We've seen their passing offense. That was more a work in progress. Probably the nicest way to put it early on in the season and no doubt that was by design. Get on track with mahomes during for more than eight hundred yards the last two games when you look at the way. Mahomes performed against the raiders. Fifteen total touchdowns just two interceptions one of them of course coming earlier this year the chiefs loss as a double digit home favor and i think it's pretty staggering to know what costs kansas city. That game is the fact that hey look. They finished a net negative minus sixty four in terms of rushing yards. The raiders held the ball for nearly eleven minutes longer and kansas city knows that they can hit the home runs. That are widely available. If they keep mahomes operate i think. The raiders passing defenses. You mention it may trending in the right direction. There's no doubt a lot of optimism out here around the raiders especially on the defensive side of the ball. This is a different beast that they're going to try and counter and with sammy watkins back amongst others. I just don't know where the raiders consistently find a way to get off the field. I agree with that. And i get it. You have to young corners in trayvon mullin in our net and people are thinking to themselves like. Hey we're trending in the right direction. We're starting to get some pressure. Would you look you play at the browns. The total is suppressed because of weather and wind. You're at the chargers. It's likely a a lost game. If two guys can hold onto football on the back corner fate and then the broncos last week and drew lock was clearly injured after taking a hit in the second quarter but you could have been trailing at halftime in that game so listen. I think the raiders are better than we all expected. You look at who they've lost to. It's it's the bills box and patriots. All pretty good teams obviously bucks in bills being very good patriots. You know with bill tough spot. There is well off the monday night game traveling across the country. So i get the by of the raiders. I just need to see more defensively to believe it's real and so that that's kind of where i'm out on that unit. I fully expect kansas city to do some good things here. Offensively

His body of work with talking heads and one a cover of Janelle. Monet's two thousand, fifteen protests anthem hell you tom bowed feels fresh and familiar at once inclusive but also mildly explosive there's an urgency to it as if burn and his troupe of eleven, musicians and dancers were staking ground in a battle we shouldn't even have to fight the idea is that to survive to live in any meaningful way, we must stay connected. It's a principal so glaringly simple at its radical. Burn is an admittedly weird ambassador for the idea of connection. He isn't what you'd call a naturally warm presence at least not in Earth terms even at age sixty eight, he's still like an. Learning. The rules of the planet his awkwardness is his brand but his desire to connect is robust and had vitalize is everything that happens onstage during American Utopia. no-one initial has one job. The musicians are also dancers and singers. Their instruments are strapped to their bodies untethered to any bulky sound equipment, which leaves them free to move and dance around the stage in a series of elegantly orchestrated numbers with burn off at the center though sometimes lurking at the edges like living fringe of the proceedings, the choreography is by dance veteran antibeach Parson all the performers including burn where identical lunar grey suits and all are barefoot. The stage is bordered on three sides by a Shimmery chainlink curtain the grand scheme is. Simple yet never chilly. This is a setting a world where certain essential problems have been worked out creating the space and freedom to play, and so even the songs every longtime burn or talking heads Fan knows well, like this must be the place naive melody a moonlit cottage in ballad form or the Wrigley waggling noodle dance. Slippery people take on new shapes and new life between numbers burn addresses the audience directly spinning amusing tales about where these songs came from. He wrote is Zimba with its lyrics by German Dada poet. Hugo. Ball to respond to a challenge thrown down by his friend and collaborator Brian Eno or us to fulfil our civic responsibilities. He uses lighting trick to show how badly the citizenry is represented when only twenty percent of the population votes and as a prelude to the shows Shiver Inducing version of hell you tom about he explains that he asked Monet's permission before venturing to cover the Song Burns band here. Is racially mixed, but he himself is very, very white. No wonder he approached with caution but he and his band present the song and invocation written in two thousand fifteen for all of us to remember the names of murdered black citizens among them Eric Garner Trayvon. Martin and Amatil. With the synthesis of respect and bristling anger it demands. This number also represents one of the few times league cuts away from this show to flash larger than life portraits at the. Victims, often held by a family member on the screen. It's an act of boldness that works as for burn. He is as ever a wildly and captivating showman though his hair is now snowcap wide his dance moves in changed over the years he's still favors angular Turkey jerky movements like the folding and unfolding of corporate tres ruler, which are often mimicked to grand effect by the dancers around him. But as dazzling as he is, you can take your eyes off him.

They're far less diverse than the performers we've been watching onstage a you could argue that with American utopia burn is preaching to the choir that this is all just an exercise in self congratulatory white liberalism but that would be missing the point in one of his Inbetween Song riffs burn muses that there are lots of interesting things to look at in the world there are bicycles which he famously likes.

The lie that invented racism

"What is up with US white people? I've been thinking about that a lot the last few years and I know I have company. Look I get it. People of Color have been asking that question for centuries. But I think a growing number of white folks are to. Given what's been going on out there In our country. And notice I said what's up with US white people. Does right now, I'm not talking about those white people. The ones with the swastikas in the hoods and the tiki torches. They are a problem, a threat, the perpetrate most of the terrorism in our country as you all in Charlottesville better than most. But I'm talking about something bigger more pervasive. Talking about all of us. White folks writ. Large. And maybe especially people sorta like me. self-described progressive. Don't WANNA be. Racist. Goodway people. Any good white people in the room? I was raised to be that sort of person. I was a little kid in the sixties and seventies, and to give you some sense of my parents actual public opinion polls at the time showed that only a small minority about twenty percent of white Americans approved supported. Martin Luther King and his work with the civil rights. Movement. Wild. Dr King was still alive. I'm proud to say my parents were in that group. Race got talked about in our house. And when the show's about the dealt was raised with come on the television, they would sit us kids down made sure we watched the Sidney Poitier movies roots. The message was loud and clear and I got it. Racism is wrong. Racists are bad people. At the same time we lived in a very white place in Minnesota. And I'll just speak for myself I. think that me to believe. that. Those white racists on the TV screen were being beamed in from some other place. Wasn't about US really. Did Not feel implicated. Now I would say I'm still in recovery from that early impression. I. Got into journalism in part because I cared about things like equality. Justice. For a long time racism was just such a puzzle to me. Why is it still with us when it's so clearly wrong. Why such a persistent force. Maybe. I was puzzled because I wasn't yet in the right place or asking the right questions. Have, you noticed that when? People in our mostly white. Media Report on what they consider to be racial issues what we consider to be racial issues what that usually means that we're pointing our cameras and our microphones are gaze at people of Color. Asking questions like. How are black folks or native Americans Latino or Asian Americans how are they doing? In a given community or with respect to some issue, the economy education. I've done. My share of that kind of journalism over many years. But then George Zimmerman killed. Trayvon Martin. Followed by this unending string of high-profile police shootings of armed black people and the rise of the black lives matter movement. dylann roof in the Charleston. Massacre. Oscarssowhite. All the. Incidents from the day to day of American Life. These overtly racist incidents that we now get to see because they're captured on smartphones sent across the Internet. And beneath those visible events the stubborn data studies showing. Systemic racism. Every institution we have. Housing Segregation. Job Discrimination. The deeply racialist inequities in our schools and criminal justice system. And what really did it for me? I know I'm not alone in this either. The RISE OF DONALD TRUMP. And the discovery that a solid majority of white. Americans. would embrace or at least accept. Such a raw bitter kind of white identity politics. This is all disturbing to me as a human being. As a journalist I found myself. Turning the Lens around. thinking. White folks so the story. Whiteness is a story. And also thinking. Can I do that? What would a podcast series about whiteness sound like?

Black Gun Ownership Rises Amid Pandemic, Protests For Racial Justice

"A record number of Americans have purchased guns this year including Black Americans from K. N. UNC in northern Colorado Lee. Patterson reports that incidents of violence against people of color have pushed some to purchase guns for the very first time and warning to our listeners. There are sounds of gunfire in this story. What type of gun is? So this is a Smith and Wesson nine millimeter shield cat trailer bought her handgun this past spring these as she practices at an indoor range with her husband like it's no big deal. But talking through her mask trailer describes how she felt the first time she pulled the trigger is beyond terrified shaking. Hands were sweaty. Trailer is a democratic political consultant who lives in Colorado. At first, she was nervous cleaning and shooting her new gun. And she had a bad experience, the first range she went to she says people were staring she felt unwelcome. Still regardless of the anxiety I had around. All those things. I got into this because I feel like it was necessarily trailer I started thinking about buying a gun when she saw empty grocery store shelves at the beginning of the pandemic. Then she watched racial justice protests unfold across the country. She started thinking about pushback from people who disagree with those efforts if it looks like communities, of Color and people that support communities of color are rising up against white supremacy that could be a problem for us is. It's probably time probably time for them to buy guns a thought that many other Americans have also had in. August. Alone people bought one point eight million firearms according to industry estimates a trade group called the National Shooting Sports Foundation reports the gun sales to customers have grown more percentage wise than for any other racial or ethnic group. With. Her New gun trailer wants to feel like she has a chance during a home invasion or an encounter with police. What we as the family had to determine is, how do we WANNA die? Instead of look at it that way. DO WE WANNA die not being prepared or at least trying to protect ourselves. That's how you weigh that as part of becoming a new gun owner trailer joined the National African American Gun Association Philip Smith is the founder nationally across the board from all over every state. We have people joining all times a day night. You know I I thought something was wrong with computer. Smith was watching membership numbers rise after the death of George Floyd may but black people have been using guns for hunting and protection for a long time historian say that Harriet Tubman carried firearms so did the Black Panthers in the nineteen sixties these days according to a Gallup poll released last year nineteen percent of black people own guns. Smith says his members are not monolithic. Some women join because they've been sexually assaulted some women join because they wanNA teach you some men join because they want to just get really good at self defense people are joining now for different. Reasons some want to support the National African American Gun Association Financially Smith says for others it's more spiritual I. Think people were looking for a home a place where you can kind of event you can belong where you felt your mind having a relief of some sort Bruce Tomlin a truck driver who lives in New Mexico describes his decision to buy a gun response to stress. I'll just say amounting society He felt that way after watching cellphone video showing the death of Ahmad arbitrary a black man who was shot while jogging through neighborhood in Georgia earlier this year don't. Go around arm the rest of my life. That's because he's been feeling under attack for years after the two thousand, twelve killings of Trayvon Martin, for example, and after the mass shooting at a black church in Charleston in two thousand, fifteen by a white supremacist goes like I can just be mine them all business. And if somebody who's a racist, just decide to roll up on me gun meet down. As is decided that like if I go out I'M GONNA go out shooting back. But now that he's an actual gun owner, it's not so straightforward day to day of feel like I can defend myself better defend my loved ones. But I usually get comfortable having it sometime he does not want to kill or injure anyone open carry makes them nervous I would never take my gone to the grocery store and carry around inside or anything like that. But on the other hand I could be in a situation where needed still out in the car or whatever I just like knowing that I have it gun ownership is complicated for Tomlin especially because he's black if he was stopped by police says, he probably wouldn't tell them that he had a gun. And catch trailer says the same thing giving the example of philander casteel he was shot during a traffic stop for years ago in Minnesota after telling an officer that he had a firearm, his car casteel did have a permit to carry it. Cat Trailer believes that gun cost him his life we're not given a fair shake when these conversations are happening automatically worsen tensions are assumed just because we're black, we're gun owners for both of these new black gun owners. It's an identity that comes with risks, but does make them feel safer for

Freedom Summer: Datra Dee Dee Jackson

"Many. Of the faces that we have seen over the past few weeks leading the black lives matter movement have been those of young black women theatric DVD. Jackson is one of those dynamic women speaking truth to power as a leader, a black youth project one hundred while attending Florida International University. She became active at the height of the murder of Trayvon. Martin was led to founding the local chapter, a dream defenders at her university. Today, we chat with Yatra, how young people are seizing and owning their political power at this moment. I'm really excited to talk to you today I've been such a big fan of B. y. p.. One hundred in really excited that you were able to join us. So thank you. So I I want to talk about the fact that at such a young age you have done so much for the black community and the Black Youth Community you've done organizing as a CO founder or of the Durham Chapter of the Black Youth Project hundred supporting black mamas bail out, which is one of the favourite causes that I donate to and just so much more especially during the racial pandemic that we've been in these past few weeks. What brought you to this work? What made you wake up one day and say, okay as a young person, I have to get involved as a black young person I have to get involved. So I am from Philly or and throughout my years I was in public schools I grew single mom. Single mom household of three girls and. So grew up in inundated southwest philly end of there's many things of my experience that really informs where end today but that's not quite where I was politicized. I was in Grad School. Down in Miami Around Twenty, twelve, twenty thirteen and so I, was living in Florida. At the same time as the murder of Trayvon Martin and all of the marches in the energy that was being built up in that time and I was pretty apolitical leading up to that point and was going to a black sitting union meeting because our school where I know black people. So the black student union because that's where we were and this organization out to folks from dream, defenders averages a state based organization down in Florida Cain ended presentation on the work that they were doing and police brutality and immigration. Reform. School to prison pipeline. We're talking about these different issues in was really activated started to pay attention. To. That as an opportunity to be partners to the apartment organizations actually doing the work that was really where I started really a moment that similar to where now I love your path that you just talked about and I feel it's so important because A lot of young people you know when I talk to them, they just feel that can I just show up? Can I do it in? That's really what you did, and that's what a lot of the people involved with the. One hundred have done and I would love for you to talk a little bit more about the work that you're doing. In particular I'm a fan of the safe. We save campaign, which is something that I also think is a very timely conversation that we need to have in this country. Yes. So she said we save is one hundred national campaign It's our transformative moving campaign to end gender-based violence against like women. Like girls in black gender, non conforming people especially comes. In there is more origin even how we got to deciding orange she sees as national as I national campaign we had this huge visibility of black boys and black men that were being murdered brutalized by the police It was carrying this very long history erasure, black women, black girls, an our stories in the way that we have been brutalized by the police, and so we wiping one hundred among many other organizations really uplifted. Hashtag say her name. As a demand to also remember the stories of black women and black girls be harmed on a regular basis by the police and really pushing a bit of an intervention into the visibility of who stories are being told. And so we help these different events honoring black women and black girls who stories were not being pushed to the front and also talked about the a specific nature of black women in the way that the system harms us that doesn't that doesn't necessarily apply to black men in black police in. So we've been pushing. On, lifting up story of Ricky Boyd Renisha McBride. Happens Melissa Alexander. In just a number of Ions Stanley Jones might hall that list goes on online.

Wendy Osefo on the Black Lives Matter protests, and the 2020 election

"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate. On this episode. A have a conversation with Wendy Osafo when he is a political commentator and a professor of education at Johns. Hopkins. University, she also served on the Obama Administration's anti-poverty initiative when he joins me to talk about everything from the current political climate to the recent black lives matter protests. We also discussed recent polling of the twenty twenty presidential election, and of course, many many failings of the trump administration. So without further ADO, here's my conversation with Wendy Assefa. Welcome to the broadcast. Thank you for having me. I really wanted to talk to you about this moment in history because I saw a tweet, the other day that really got my attention I think it was from Congresswoman Anna Presley and she said that the civil rights movement didn't in it didn't end and that we're living right now it's ongoing and I think that that's pretty you know accurate what's happening in the streets with black lives matter protests you know what do you think this moment actually means I think this moment right now is a defining moment in our country. And our nation I think that what we have to realize is that without cameras, this has been the backdrop of the lives of black people for years is just so happens that the death of George Floyd was videotaped but this has happened so many times in enough is enough I was told people you know I'm so happy that black lives matter has become a battle cry that people more aware about now in twenty twenty but I remember marching when black lives matters started before was even Hashtag with the death of Trayvon Martin it was the death and killing trayvon Martin that. Ignited the hash black lives matter and so I say all that to say, you know the civil rights movement was a time that we look to as a historic time society and we came through that as a nation but it hasn't ended because just evolved in different ways, and that's what people have to understand and I'm just so excited to see different faces, different races, different backgrounds really fighting now because it's going to take our nation to come together as one in order for us to end systemic racism. Now you're absolutely right it has evolved right? That's the perfect word. For it and when I think about you know what you just said marching when Trayvon Martin was murdered a movement was kind of in its infancy. But what I think is really interesting now is the reaction from conservatives now that people are marching around the world for black lives matter they their reactions were really extreme Ryan, I mean it's like splashed holy water on them like what do you think that they think black lives matter actually means what does it mean to them? You hear people saying like not in my town you're not gonNA bring black lives matter into Maya. Town. Yeah I think is really interesting in the way I. Answer. This question may actually be controversial I think that they are very clear what black lives matter means I think they are very clear but black lives matter stands for, but they don't want to accept what black lives matters means because if they do that means that they are accepting that this country's inherently racist and that's the truth and as uncomfortable truth we are saying black lives matter because black lives are the ones that are under attack were saying black lives matter because the statistics show that black and Brown children in schools are treated differently. That's why we're seeing black. Lives matter but you see it's not just black lives. Matter is black lives matter because black lives have been treated as less than for so many years in this country. So I think that conservatives are fully aware of what this means I think that is willful ignorance for them to say, no black lives with not only to accept that is not the Hashtag that the issue is the premise of the Hashtag doesn't issue and I think that when we're having these conversations with people, these are people who are elected Congress people they're pretty smart. You know they're pretty erudite nature, and so you know these are the same. Individuals who say because they're conservatives that a baby's life matters at the beginning of Jess station. You don't have to come out of the womb for your life to matter but soon as your created your life matters and therefore they're against abortion. So if they're able to understand that a baby's life matters at the beginning of creation than I'm pretty sure that they're competent enough to understand that black lives matter because black lives are the ones under

She's also the president of the Mellon Foundation the country's biggest funder of Arts and culture this year they're working with grant making budget of five hundred million dollars every dollar of which she's decided. We'll go towards social justice. A president for two years, and even as they were deciding whether or not to invite me to be president, I told them this was the way I would want to run this foundation and the only way I would run. This foundation is that every penny is going towards a fairer and more just society that all of that will be if you will pass through a social. Social, justice. Lens, which is I think rich and complex. You know sometimes people think Oh. Is there a litmus test, or does it mean like just these people are not that people, but it's the hard work of asking a lot of questions with all the grants that we make which is. How do we think about the voices that we're trying to being forward because they? They have not been supported. And how do we also with all of the institutions that we fund? How do we ask them the same questions that we're asking ourselves? Do we adhere to principles of equity and inclusion that to me are simply about recognizing the excellence and the faceted -ness of what it takes to be really smart and tell complex stories one grant I was. was really proud of was relatively on the small side, but in Central Park to help support the building of a memorial to the abolitionist lions family on the space that was Seneca. Village Central Park raised a free and prosperous black community to give us central park. Let's let the ground speak one of the projects that it sounds exciting to me. IS THE MILLION Book Project? Talked about the project is sounds amazing. The million book project just absolutely fills my heart. I have the privilege of knowing really extraordinary person. Dwayne, Betts Reginald. dwayne Betts a poet. He's a legal scholar. Amazing, amazing poet, and spent from the age of sixteen in the Washington DC area, was convicted of a carjacking, spent a very long stretch in prison, including a substantial portion of it in solitary confinement, so he has come up with this idea that we are supporting in a big way and that we've helped to build together at Mellon the million book project, which is what would it mean for there to be a real walk into the space and And Browse the books library in prisons, because it's become more and more difficult to get books into prisons, and to get books of deep and profound nourishment, not just self, help books, or a certain kind of religious book or an outdated law book, so what Dwayne has put together is a plan to put five hundred book libraries in every single state men's and women's Christians juvenile facilities including Washington DC in Puerto Rico, and these would be libraries with the great works of liberation in them, so we're also talking about them as I said Dwayne these freedom libraries. Think about it. Going back to the idea of literacy is freedom that is documented in our slave narratives. Frederick Douglass talking about you know when I could read. That's when I could imagine freedom. That's when I could imagine another world. That's when I could hold my mind to be able to be a critical thinker. Dwayne himself told me that he first met my poems when he was in solitary confinement. The full circle situation here you are full circle situation. For many of us with family and friends behind bars with family and friends who've cycled in and out this sounds amazing, but to a lot of folks, this probably provocative, this idea of putting money and resources to getting books in Saudi prisons, so the way that I talk about the million book project. Is there a problem with books themselves? Right. Start there. If you've got a problem with books themselves, then okay, we got something to talk about, but if you believe that higher education is laboratory, if you believe that books, open our minds, and if you then and this is sort of a nice test of what does it mean to go through the social justice? Lens if we're GONNA fund higher education outside of prison because we believe it is liber Tori. Who are we not to fund it? For people who are our learners inside prison, and also to the pragmatics, it's very important to say that our vision of in prison and outside prison is there is porosity right for people have family friends in people come out. How do we expect a larger society to function if people are deliberately? Kept in literary ignorance, that word should have you light surrounded deliberately deliberately kept in literary ignorance. So I WANNA ask you. What is the role and the place of the arts in moments like this where we have covert nineteen, we have the uprisings in the reckoning race. Would you think a please? I think that the arts play a role and have the power the unique power that they have always had across time space and.

"trayvon" Discussed on The Cave of Time

"Like I ruined. Z.. A.. This document. I actually had heard of this documentary. It's called the Trayvon Martin Hoax and you can still watch it for free online. It's not the greatest documentary. The documentary filmmaker puts in all his own interpretation of the trial and how sees the world which a lot of people are disagree with Myself I'm certainly not in total agreement within. The also looks like a cracked out. Christopher hitchens kind of does but if you actually just look at the investigative work that he does and the facts that he puts on the table, just about like I actually basically I think I summed up all the really important things just now. But if you look at that, it's pretty good work. So you can go to I think it's the Trayvon hoax dot com and you can watch it for their. But this came out a year ago and I did not watch it because I already thought that this trial importing some kind of hoax on top of things like if this hoax ever receives a lot of tension and then disproved then like it's GonNa, it's GonNa. Just solidify the case being a legitimate case where Zimmerman was a murderer and like there's all these conspiracy theorists. Whites, racist people trying to make excuse. So I didn't want to even look hoax hoax stuff that I heard about but in researching this podcast i. was like well I guess I may as well pull that up and take a look and it's pretty compelling stuff like I would almost go so far as its iron clad I mean, I wouldn't my life on it but I'd certainly bet money on it that there is some serious foul play here. Now. So. There's a couple of questionable things that bring up that I. See you're looking at your computer screen right now. So you might notice is girl. Okay Well let me just mention I then that George Zimmerman is now suing the the Trayvon Martin Trayvon Martin's family the attorneys and the law enforcement law enforcement law enforcement easy for me to say agency. And that that. That case was filed December twenty nineteen. I don't know when any kind of trials or. When the results of that suit will come through but it'd be very exciting to see you when all this evidence is brought before courts. To see what happens because it's pretty clear to me. That something very questionable is happening and the other question is who knew about this so Sabrina Fulton Trayvon, Martin's mother almost certainly knew there was something a mass here like she knew both Brittany Diamond Eugene and Rachel Sean tell she has a letter from diamond. Eugene, like she must have known something was going on here. It's hard for me to believe the attorneys didn't know the defense or half sisters on their mother's side or father side they are half sisters on their mother's side. That woman must have known as well..

The picture on his phone associated with the contact of diamond and the pictures sent to them from the number are not pictures of Rachel John. Tell. All right. So this investigator flew to the area. Where were these people reside and he got high school yearbooks from all the high schools of people associated with Trayvon. He was looking for people with similar names to diamond Eugene. The pictures on the phone appear to be someone named Brittany Diamond Eugene. who was found in his yearbooks now redact unredacted police reports police reports that have since been unredacted that this investigative reporter might have been the first person to get his hands on them. Show. That Sabrina Fulton the mother of Trayvon Martin drove invested investigators to Britney Diamond Eugene's home address when taking them to see diamond Eugene they were then redirected to a different address by the people who are at that house and sent to Rachel John Tells. House. Where Rachel John Towel began saying that her nickname was diamond eugene. Now, this this investigative reporter dug through the trash at both Rachel John, tell us place Britney, diamond Eugene's place and Rachel John. Tells, mother I believe it was he found out that racial John Bell and Brittany Diamond Eugene. Are Half Sisters share the same mother. All the. So we Rachel John L.. First of all, we heard her so she lied about being a minor. To investigators where we're Brittany Diamond Eugene actually is a minor she lied about missing Trayvon's wake because she was in the hospital where diamond Eugene had tweeted about having food poisoning she lied about signing the letter. This investigative reporter took the letter to a handwriting expert and he examined the writing and said, this is definitely not Richard on Rachel maddow basically illiterate first of all Rachel on Shawntel lied about signing that letter and it looks like it was either Britney Diamond Eugene that signed it or close friend of Brittany. Diamond. Eugene they analyzed and when I'm looking at the writing of of reports, there's I believe like police. There's there was some signature pulled up from Brittany Diamond Eugene and the writing look almost exactly the same to the signature on the document that was given to Sabrina Fulton and Trayvon Martin's mother. So, it doesn't even look like Rachel like Rachel Chantal, look at Avon Martin She's one hundred pounds heavier and your two older than Trayvon Martin, these do not look to people that would be that would be dating I mean aside from the fact that the person that he's in a romantic relationship on the phone is. Kind of hot and they're not pictures of Rachel John Towel. And when asked by investigators, how many intact the text were exchanged by the two Rachel John said that day we only I only send him one text when in fact, there were thirty two texts from that day on on this phone. So those are the facts right there and these are public records and you can look them up yourself..

"So he's not exactly like a good guy character in all. No. No. I wouldn't say that mentioned there was accusations of domestic abuse sees made. Anti Muslim comments before I. I believe he dropped the bomb once or twice since the since the trial. There's no like there's no reason for anybody to stick their neck out for well, I? Think there is reason but it's not good optics. Uh I mean it's kind of a bigger question of like do you want fair trials for everybody? Do you want exactly just fair trials for the people that you like? Or just fair trials for good people. Let's say. I mean. It's kind of funny because everybody when they say stuff about George, floyd? Oh, well on math. Oh well, he committed a crime. He did this people say well, that has nothing to do with this. What are you talking about? With George Zimmerman, it was all relevant right You. saw. Okay. We're GONNA move on anyways. Yeah. Let's so Rachel John Tell. She was the star witness.

Would riot I've been thinking. Lately Yeah, especially with what's going on now I've been I've been thinking that myself I like maybe maybe you can say okay well, fuck George Zimmerman like fuck him.

So like people getting beat up in his name, this is for Trayvon Martin. People. You know right now all the riots everything going on like This isn't Saturday man just fucking insane. Yes of celebrities you said is nuts i. know it's crazy. So did I do a decent job at painting like media malpractice in this pointed out a bunch of key things do you feel like? He was treated unfairly by the media. Yeah, I. Do I, definitely do. Not Realize it was about I thought you know he's GonNa have some threats and things are going to be bad and he'd have to lay low for a couple of years. Where is he now is alive still? Alive that injury was fairly recently that we that we just watched. Yeah. So. So And this this false narrative this mistreatment Zimmerman received this was changing the world. So, these lines were being elevated, propagated and celebrated by celebrities many in the general public, not only that. But international conversation being steered by the story not only that but laws and public policy standing to be changed and we're seeing we're seeing more that happened right now. Not.

Actually what got from that also same interview we've got him talking about his interactions with the public after that so that there was a time where I believe he was on a podcast or a radio show and the host asked him to sign a pack of skittles.

"So we had we had Obama before the trial or before the trial he said if he had a son, it would look ray-ban. now after the trial on. July nineteenth thousand thirteen. Obama says Trayvon, could have been me. After Zimmerman was found not guilty. Obama says to the world that Trayvon. Could have been him. I mean, let you interpret that however you want. I mean could like who who else could've been crude. Obama Been A. Black serial rapist as well. Could he have been? Albert Einstein is it just that is just that this was a a black guy. Why Actually let me ask you why did Obama Trayvon could have been him. Well I'm going to be as charitable as possible and saying that. Doodoo negative race relations between blacks whites in America. For Obama growing up could have just as easily a target. For something yes. Deserve. Okay. Great. But that. Implied in that is that there was an injustice and that Trayvon was a target. So, Obama's communicating to the world that on injustice was. enacted. Upon trayvon Martin. Yeah. I mean that's the only favorable way I could. And it's. Not even that favorable, it's it's still something I think that he clearly shouldn't have said. It seems it seems like messed up. Well what do you want him to say here's a politician he's being asked to comment on this see. You might be saying that. He was trying to. Maybe console the. Black population in America. He left office. America was more racially divided than it's ever been in recent history. Now. It's I. Think it's even more racially divided now but. I don't think I. Don't think he'd find a lot of people who claimed that Barack Obama was trying to stoke racial tensions in American. Oh, some people claim that. Yeah. I don't think. All right I don't think that would be a very popular point of view I certainly wouldn't think that. On the surface without going into it further. Actually going to pull up on the screen just for the audience I think it's most likely. It's very political thing to say it's very nice kind of. not very deep thought on it. It's it's an it's got a nice sound bite. It plays well to the media placates placates the anger that people have about the case I mean it definitely airport though it definitely played wealth the media give you that. It affirms people already think it's a very safe thing to say. So onscreen right now we've got the ratings of black white relations in America. very somewhat good. So for most of the two thousands we were rolling around like seventy percent. Both black well, blacks was a bit lower dipped into the fifties at some point in time but twenty fifteen as low as ever. This was after Trayvon Martin. I think it was after Mike Brown after Mike Brown as well, and this was when Obama was leaving office. We've got. White S- plaques national adults all A- basically fifty percents on race relations in race relations in the country being very somewhat good. So that's what happened when Obama left. Office. I mean getting back into it I guess. To. Do. So like. George Zimmerman. how the world's. How the world turn on George Zimmerman if he if he like, let's say If. Like just humoring the position that George Zimmerman was not a racist Prick asshole before the trial. It's it's totally it's not even within the realm of possibility to me..

"The racist were this would have happened. Soak it. Well, here's the thing. Is it so why why do we assume like why was the mainstream narrative assumed that this racist bully hunted down and killed a innocent black youth? When And why not didn't we take story that Zimmerman explained Martin tackled him to the ground punched him repeatedly in the head and upon spotting Zimmerman's gun on his waistband struggled to seize it before Zimmerman killed Martin in self defense. So why did we believe the innocent black young youth getting haunted in the streets by a racist bully as opposed to that story? I feel like if races were first, we might be more likely to do that. I mean I think the age might have something to do with to. He's very young kid, right? True. Space Well, not so much. I mean, let me. Let me pull up image here -cation. He's how old was Trayvon Martin happened like sixteen or something. Yeah, I, think he was seventy I actually I actually said that earlier but it's In my mind right now it's must be a fifteen sixteen or seventeen is a young adult seventeen seventeen. Yes. But I'm going to send pick right now I'm GONNA pull that up with the audience. So these are pictures of the dominant photos in the media and the actual. The actual way they looked at the time of the shooting. So Yeah. So as you can see. Ads. Mugshot of Zimmerman from years earlier when he was, you know looking somewhat menacing much more Husky. Where he's he had slimmed down a lot looked a lot more presentable around the time of the shooting whereas with Martin you've got him. Often years earlier. So, people magazine had an image of him where he was prepubertal isn't on the cover of people magazine. This image he might be like fifteen or sixteen he might have hit it. Grossberg in that year. Yeah. So he was might not be purposely to make them look innocent. He was at least six feet tall at the time of the shooting. Yeah. Oh I didn't know that it was a small guy no, no no, he was. He was much bigger. And how big is George? Zimmerman well, his weight has fluctuated by the time of the shooting. He was quite slim like the picture you see at the bottom there where he's looking a lot slimmer that is more representative of size and I think he's like as far as concerned I think he's like smaller than the average guy I don't remember exactly but I think he's like five, five, five, six or something..

Masks have become a partisan issue

"Earlier today. The vice president united. States Mike Pence stopped by diner in Pennsylvania typical campaign, fair and video that event was shown on TV and their other than a secret service guide appears in the back and later a waitress. Almost nobody is wearing masks as far as I can tell no one, certainly not these supposed head of the corona virus taskforce. You remember that. That and that might seem like a small thing especially to anyone who managed to convince themselves, and you'll want to really have to worry about the virus. The reality is that the virus is still here. It's still killing people every day and the more we learn, the more we know, that close sustained indoor proximity without masks like what they're doing in. The diner brings with it a high risk of transmission. Seems the more we learn, the more we learn, that masks matter a lot in many of the countries that are managed to control the virus like Taiwan pretty much. Everyone wears masks. In fact just this week. A British study found that widespread mask-wearing could prevent covid nineteen second waves, not that we're even to the point where we're trying to prevent a second wave here in America. Sadly, we are still squarely in the first wave. We basically plateaued. Twenty thousand cases a day, just under a thousand deaths a day. That is our new devastating normal. We've already lost more than a hundred and fifteen thousand Americans right now. Hospitalizations are surging number of states including Arizona, Tennessee Arkansas South Carolina and Alabama. Two States Oregon Utah have paused their reopening efforts amid spikes. In cases in fact, I'm going to talk the governor of Oregon Kate Brown in just a moment about that to other states with large populations Florida and Texas just reported records for daily highs in new cases, which is particularly striking given that Republicans announced yesterday that Jacksonville Florida is the new alternatively location for the Republican National Convention after officials in Charlotte North, Carolina declared. The event would not be safe there. The safety does not seem to be much of a concern for the President United States amidst the pandemic that is seen one hundred and fifteen thousand people die. Next Week Donald. Trump is as you may have heard holding his first campaign rally since lockdown in where Tulsa Oklahoma, where covid nineteen cases just record daily high. That's right. Officials said the increase has been identified as an outbreak linked to indoor gatherings, okay. The president will be holding his rally at. An indoor arena at the Bank of Oklahoma Center, which just over nineteen thousand people packed in there. As far as we can tell, he's telling his supporters that if they get the corona virus at his rally, it's not his problem in order to attend. They have to agree not to sue Donald Trump if they come to the rally and they catch the coronavirus. At least those people have choice, the president has forced graduating cadets at west point who have been sent home to return to campus, so he can deliver a commencement address tomorrow, which we think will be outdoors, so that's good and can have a photo op with them. At least fifteen of those cadets have already tested positive for the virus. The science here as tentative and unformed as sort of dynamic as it is, suggests our best hope to fight the virus right now. If we want to not have locked down, right, be some version of normal our best hope right now. He's wearing masks, washing hands social, but wearing masks, wearing masks wearing masks. And yet the president and the vice president who extensively want to get the economy back on track and get back to normal, not only refuse to wear them. They have effectively turned wearing masks into a culture where issue and they have stoked this political backlash against those who dare tell us how to stay safe. Here's an example in Orange County California the chief health officer Dr Nicole quick resigned amid backlash and a death threat death threat over in order to wear masks, residents, comparing her to a Nazi and holding protests at her home. This was a scene at Tuesday's Orange County Board of supervisors meeting. I have been discriminated five times in the last two days I have been actually turned away. I cannot go in these businesses without a mask. You're telling me that I have to breathe in c. o two when God gave this body, the ability to extract that from my body, and now you want me to put it back in my body. I have natural rights as a sovereign citizen of the United States by continuing to keep people in masks separated out of work with no legitimate cause. You are kneeling on the next of the people, and you are continuing to act in a thuggish manner. Guys over like really like. You know I mean. Are we talking about this? Kneeling on the next, she compared wearing a mask to killing. George Floyd and it's over. Are we still talking about this? Yeah, we're still talking about it. People are still dying from it, but that's the view of the White House that women's view. It's not just happening in Orange County Ohio Ohio state. There's been a relative success story and containing the virus Republican. Governor Mike DeWine. Has Been a leader on the issue. He credited Dr Acton, who's health rector, the state as a hero for her role, and that included advising government wind lockdown early very early left the state in much better position to reopen. Dr Acton has now resigned amid lawsuits the push by Republicans. And protests at her home where some people conspicuously carried God's. The Guardian reports some demonstrations at the State House featured signs bearing antisemitic messages. That's comparing her Nazi again. Acting as Jewish and one lawmaker referenced her with an anti-semitic Slur. Dr? Amy Acton died her estate through a pandemic and for that she target for Reactionary Idiots. Look it's a complicated world we live in. Complicated time it's not like the experts are all in unison about everything they're not. It's not like this isn't complicated. There have been mixed messages about the virus and transmission about mask-wearing. When they told us not to wear mass February, they were wrong about that and we're still processing data, and they're still all sorts of countervailing balances between different kinds of risks. What we're doing. But we have seen what happens. If there's one thing we know, we've seen what happens across the world. And in this country when leaders just shove their fingers and say I can't hear you corona virus. There's a real danger of politics and political forces overwhelm public health entirely. And we sure as heck should not be punishing health, experts and leaders were crying to help us help ourselves to stay safe and healthy.

"As a black woman. You know you, we. We see so much of this closer up fries, you know. And so when it all started to kind of happen, if bell very much like here we go, it's the same cycle. It's been happening. You know for us. I think the first one I remember was Trayvon Martin. You kind of get used to seeing these traumatizing enriches morning with the family improvising so hard, and then seeing the person gets off Ford ever happened, and that's like a crush again, so it's like it happens over and over and over so you begin to lose hope. You know you're like here. It goes you know and so I kind of gotten to a point where I. Just it was too much I. had shut it out I can, I cannot deal with. This is just going to happen all over again. This time. It feels different. Especially Lists Young Equal Day are speaking up in a way that is so power phone so direct in so hopeful in. It's like get it. They are getting it in their speaking up to their their parents, you know. People that joint tic TAC over the quarantine so I'll scroll and grow in. Exposing these conversations actual conversations that they're having appearance in. It's like wow, it's on them. Getting kicked out their houses. It's kind of you know. The, writing black lives matter on the chunk of their driveway. Mean they are like they are living the revolution at home in that is so hard for at in and so many of them have actually said they're getting through to their parents gives me chills ungrateful I. Am Hopeful We may evolve me, too, so yeah, we have this wonderful generation Z. of heard them. Them called. I Gen. My children are in that generation, and now we have the next generation that you and a lot of the people that listen to this podcast or reading. How do we honor this work with them? How do we ensure that we're raising anti-racist children? What can we do? I really mostly just WANNA. Listen to what you have to say about this. You know civilization. It seems like it's being presented with. This divine opportunity to evolve in it's so painful yet hopeful you know for it systematically for centuries what have been oppressed in this country whether the from implicit bias over covert racism being traumatize, and it's like we've reached a point where it seems like people are ready to say enough is enough and are collectively pushing each other to be on the right side of this journey. And with that, it's like folks WanNa know what what can we do and so I have two answers that I have prepared for today. One is see yourself. The second is seared charter. There's a Colt by Rene. Brown, it says we cannot give our show dron what we do not have. We cannot give our children. What we do not have in an to know what you have. You have to see yourself and that requires being mindful. People instantly get defensive if they're raises because it doesn't feel good to be labeled, and especially not that all it's like no, that's not me. I don't accept that you know I'm nice to people. Treat them how I want to be treated. I give him a shirt off my back, but it's like would if you took the time to look at it from a mindfulness approach. There is this great Buddhist tool for minds s? It's an acronym called rain recognize. Allow investigate with kindness in in night into the Keisha. You know you might find yourself in situations where a decision you may or something you said as you being caught out or being respected for being racist, or maybe there is no call out. Maybe you're just something you did or experience, so which you do as first you're to recognize what is happening in my body right now. Does my stomach haven't Iki him? How about my face? My chest? Am I having desire to distract or remove myself from the situation? Just recognizing everything that you're feeling can be very our. Next year to allow those feelings to just be. It can be hard to sit with discomfort. We want to push it out of our bodies, but don't fight them. And maybe even picture is comfort looks like.

"trayvon" Discussed on The Peter Schiff Show Podcast

"I have no doubt they're going to bring her out to the two thousand twenty convention to try to inflame with her narrative. She's still saying today. People hate us so much because of your color of your skin they want to shoot. You shoot says that even though this case had nothing to do with that are so you know. We mentioned that the media you've talked to some people in the press release afraid to touch this so such a hot divisive issue. They're afraid you know for their careers. But I'm sure you're getting emails or some people are contacting you regular people who have seen this and I know I'm sure so you've got some hate mail but are people saying. Hey you know what. Thank you for opening my eyes because I actually believe the false narrative and I watched this film and now my mind and has been changed. Are you getting you well. First of all if you go to the livestream link from the website the Trayvon hoax dot com. Lots of comments. There you can also see on Amazon. I'm you know over one hundred comments on and reviews Just regular folks that see it and those mirror the type of emails. I get where people say. I kind of knew something was wrong. With this case I didn't know what it was but I did end up believing the main part of it and now I realize it was all a lie and thanking me. I've gotten very little hater angry. Mail the only couple of angry things are from white liberals. I don't like it. They don't like it very much that the story story. They've been pushing to black America that they better vote for Democrats because of all these hate. They don't like it when that story is the bit. And it's very few complaints if there's any bad reviews they're not even from people who saw the film because you can't give that film battery view if you've actually seen it so I'm sure there are people who are I'm just going there and are just saying oh it's terrible it's a bunch of nonsense because they're biased and they weren't even then it's very little and I can tell you just like you said you saw the film twice i. I have never heard from anybody that didn't watch it at least twice because it was so much information. It's actually very entertaining. Even though it's such a serious up yeah you don't WanNa Miss Anything but you know that brings up the point. I want to ask you about the you. Were going to screen this around in Florida somewhere and you had the theater basically had so much political local pressure they. They wouldn't even let you show it. They canceled your contract right. We had a contract with coral gables. Art Cinema signed rental agreement. Totally normal normal I had. I've done this one hundred times and I was at the National Press Club of all places just two months prior very similar. You simply rent the room. They have no responsibility. They don't sell tickets. It was is a private event for press. Only they have nothing to do with it and it's very very common. That's what they do all the time. Most theaters do that and I went to Florida. GOT THE PRESS US release out. I had responses from CNN Fox News Channel NBC. They'RE ALL COMING MIAMI HERALD ORLANDO SENTINEL EVERYBODY'S COMING RSVP. And I'm just it driving over to the theater. I've been in Florida for a couple of days with my blu ray disc. They said we'll blend your boulay. We'll just WANNA test it on the system. Is it okay. So this is less than twenty four hours and before the event they call me they say we cancelled. I said why he said while the city of Coral Gables mayors calling the city council and the city lawyer is here in the lobby lobby of the theater and they want us to cancel. I said why why well they don't like the name of the movie or something I said. Well you can't do that. I have a contract contract. I'll call you right back. She called me back and wouldn't even talk to me anymore. She said well. You can send me an email so subsequently I had to cancel. That event cost a lot of money. And I'm probably going to sue them for breach of contract. Censorship violation of First Amendment Rights. This is a typical thing where they didn't see the movie they didn't ask for. They even admitted. There's no requirement to screen or approved content. Y- you know they. That's what happened there. Look I'm sure they'll settle for some amount Alpaca. I can see from their perspective. They were probably afraid that they were GonNa get protests and people were going to boycott and people were going to vandalize. The I don't know you can't you. You can't be fear of fear of the mob means we don't have free speech. I showed at the National Press Club. But this is this is a private company. That didn't WANNA take that risk risk but that shows you how powerful this film is because if your film was a bunch of BS sure put it out there so people could show how it's nonsense nonsense but the fact that you can't refute anything in this film that's why it's so scary. That's why people don't want it aired. But they shouldn't you can't censor censor movies that you haven't even seen and you haven't you don't have any requirement in your contract for breach of contract. It's not really because it's not government government. This is a private company that doesn't want to take the risk to their reputation. But if they should've asked you that you did what you are required to do. And they protect themselves yourselves. They breached the contract. They should be required to cover your damages. I weigh in that. But it's thank. Fortunately we could see this. This thing is on on the Internet you can get you actually can get the DVD or BLU ray or is it all just download. Yeah well you can livestream from the link on the TRAYVON HOAX DOT COM You can also get the DVD or on Amazon you can get the book the book or the DVD as well. You have a book. And he book Doc Book and E-p-o-c-h. I mean I think if you watch the movie or vice versa. You're going to get the book by Versa because the movie so visual and interesting and fun and then the book okay. There's a lot more background in depth and additional things that you couldn't fit in the film so I think you should. You should read and and watch the movie as well. Yeah and you know the stories not over yet because we have to see what happens with this lawsuit. We have to see if the media will gradually open their eyes or somebody will have courage with a major network or somebody will actually report on. What's really relevant here? Not The fact that there's a lawsuit but that there was a fraud perpetrated that there was was a fake witness that it was that it was an attempt to frame an innocent man that the media ran with a phony narrative despite all the evidence overwhelming all Ming witness and factual evidence at the narrowly was wrong. And now even after the fact when it's confirmed that the witness wasn't even real and they're still clinging to this is false narratives so it's GonNa be interesting to see the Pandora's Box that you've opened up with this well. I was on the today. Show when I was in Florida believe leave it or not Kerry Sanders interviewed me for a full hour a full hour and I was saying well. How much of this is going to make it onto the today show? He said Oh a couple of minutes I said okay okay so for an hour. He kept asking me provocative questions like eight times he said. Is this just a conspiracy like that. And then I I would explain why it's not while it actually is a conspiracy but it's not a conspiracy theory. There was more than one person that was involved in this conspiracy. I said but it's proven so eight times. He tried to kind of find something to make fun of me in some way and in the end only twelve seconds of the full hour interview got onto the today's Today's show and I actually answered his question is why didn't you. Why didn't you ask Diamond Eugene when you saw her in the movie About this and I said I was in the middle of the investigation. You don't tell the person you're investigating. Hey you and so. It was a perfect undercover recover operation. Because she wasn't defensive for guard was down because the real diamond Eugene. She's a bright girl. I mean she's smart. She's not like Rachel Shantelle Intel. She's got a lot on the ball she's got and so she would have. She wouldn't have got anywhere near you and it was funny. She was a little suspicious. You know when she sees writing those names down. I was laughing laughing about the names that you came up with. And she's but she's she didn't piece that together because you did such a good job of pretending to be her customer. Well I was the customer. I bought a lot of her fashion reasons. Loathing it was a good deal I would recommend her close to girls aware that kind of clothing But yeah it was was very nerve wracking. I mean I had a camera set up right there in plain sight and she kind of looked at it and she must have just thought well that I don't know what she thought But it was nerve wracking. I was trying to get her to to sign names on these Christmas cards that coincided with the same words in the letter that she gave to Trayvon's mother so you had like the man. Dan was getting closer. So I made up a name Teresa closer men so I thought these are really funky. She doesn't realize what's up. Yeah and so. By the way they took an hour of footage for the today show and they this is like I don't know how long we've been talking. If feels like an hour all of it is going to be online. We're not going to any any of this down. So you're going to get a full airing so there's anything that any questions that I kind of forgot to ask you and there's anything that's on your mind that you want to get Out there why don't you just finish up by just saying that we look. I think it's the most important film of the year of not the decade of the most raced based trial since OJ. That really changed. The country turns out it was a hoax. It was a total fraud Black lives matter. Should probably think about hanging it up. Colin Kaepernick can go back and play for the forty niners now all this race based nonsense that divided us for no reason. You look at this film and you realize it was just a lot of BS S. and we need to get back to who we are which is a brotherhood. Americans are brothers black and white we live under a nation of liberty and justice for all. And there's no need to have this race based narrative in our faces from the left or the media and this movie just exposes it and by the way Trayvon Martin I get to know him the the last eight months of his life and I probably got to know more than his friends and family and I show that he wasn't a thug. He was not a rocket scientist either that they made him out to be He was an average case that went into a downhill spiral. And you can learn about them the film so if you go to the Trayvon hoax dot com start with a trailer livestream and share it as much as possible because I think the story can help heal what went wrong. And this is the real story about a young kid who probably had a promising future. He had some problems and he did spiraled down and where his parents where was his father in all this. And how did those those that institution that our school and fail him because he put himself in circumstances that led to his death. It's unfortunate that he died even if veep attack George and he's getting into fights. Look a lot of young kids do stupid things when they're sixteen seventeen years old sleep but the fact that he's dead. It's not Zimmerman's fault that I like. Yeah let me come look at. It was a tragedy. It's a big country. That's three hundred twenty million people. There are tragic circumstances. That kinda come together and things happen Some people do stupid things and making terrible mistakes. Some people are on drugs and do do things they shouldn't have done and unfortunately sometimes at least someone's death but for those individual incidences to then be exploited by the media. The left to make a political narrative in a political agenda is wrong and This case different from some other ones where individuals acted it's stupidly or mistakenly and someone was was killed and that's tragedy not just death of seventeen year old but the death of freedom and justice and and the way people are exploiting a tragedy like that to create an even bigger tragedy. Ajeti were even more. People probably died as a result of the race baiting. And all everything that's happened in the aftermath of this and you know I'm sure sure that the the academy you're not gonNA nominate you for an Academy Award for best documentary. Although they should nominate it'd be point out. I am up for a Pulitzer Prize as I paid seventy five dollars and I entered the book the book to the Polish Surprise Committee for two thousand Nineteen at Columbia University. So if they're watching please take a serious look. Look at the book because I believe I am an official entrant not a nominee. But I'm an entrance for the Pulitzer Prize for the book. I would say given that. This is a seminal event and Nikon. ICK thing that happened in in our history for you to be able to definitively prove that the entire thing was a fraud and not just a lot of people thought it didn't make makes sense right. Oh this how can that be..

"trayvon" Discussed on The Peter Schiff Show Podcast

"And you'll see all the coverage There's actually a couple of brilliant professors. These African American professors one out of Colombian being one out of Brown University. Glenn Lurie and John mcwhorter. They read the book and saw the movie. And they did a very insightful. I happen to watch their part one and partout in their entirety. And Yeah. I very much enjoyed watching it because you can tell because these are these are Liberal Democrats if these guys you know admit that they were fully on board with the false narrative because they just wanted to believe it like everybody else but their minds. I mean their rational thought fought is just now contradicting with that. Because it won't let them accept it anymore and you can see it pains them to have to admit this because they understand the implications and because you have these people now that have been paraded around the parents and there. They basically committed a crime and the lawyer. I mean. This is a a huge crime when you basically knowingly put forward a fake witness who is not only committing perjury because you coach them but they're canoed posture. They're not even personally claim to be and if Trayvon's parents and his lawyers if they're willing to lie about something like this if they're are willing to commit a crime that they should actually be jailed for they should be charged and convicted. They shouldn't be going to jail for what they tried to do. And framing innocent may on. I mean you know what if what if they actually convicted George Zimmerman although he's been convicted in the court of public opinion and his wife have been ruined by and so they understand the implications of this and so it's tearing them up inside and they're being honest but I think the media understands it. Which is why they WANNA clamp down? They don't even want to admit. Oh you know what we made a mistake. We rushed to judgment. We believe a bunch of liars. who had their own agenda? They made a bunch of money off this. The lawyer made career and a fortune to parents at a lawsuit and they're all politically motivated and they don't want to go back and say hey wait a minute we. This was a rush to judgment. They don't even want to reflect reflect on that so they're burying this story well but for them it's far beyond that because don't forget Less than a year later their next this the slogan Iran with was skittles and iced tea. So Ben crump then went with Al Sharpton to Burgas in Missouri to push the next Trayvon hoax. Call it hands up. Don't shoot. That's another one. The media pushed pushed so they've been pushing this stuff on us for the last six years. It really changed the country. Jussie smollet thing that never happened. They just they just repeated it without question Russian when I was in. DC At the National Press Club promoting Releasing the movie there. They were putting out a story. That a black girl in Virginia Virginia said some white kids cut off her dreadlocks. They were reporting that. No questions asked the next day. They said Mike Pence's wife works at the school school. They were so excited the third day they said oops. The mother said it was a hoax. She lied she cut off her own dreadlock so the media malfeasance the medium instead of just run with this stuff And I think I think a lot of people are realizing that if you just accept the media narrative you're gonNA get fooled and if al Sharpton is in on it or Ben crump is in on it. You really need to ask some questions but at least cutting off a young girls dreadlocks. I I can see that happening. That's possible but I mean the Jussie smollet. That was crazy. I mean the minute I heard that I. There's no way this actually happened and immediate is already not willing to accept it because Jussie is black and he's gays automatically if you're a victim and he's a double victim. Well you must be believed no matter. How preposterous Chris? It is that you're asking people to believe and this should should open up people's eyes I mean. Did you get on the phone with some of these reporters and and actually discuss your findings to get their reaction or did not even get that far. Well he did. I mean I talked to a lot of them. Many of them were quite honest. They said straight up they said look. This is incredible. What you uncovered? But I'm afraid to be the first one to push out there. If I'm the first one looking into this I'm going to get attacked on social media. They're gonNA call for me to be fired. Only once it's out in the media then I'll cover it and most of them actually have all of them. Were afraid they don't WanNA SCOOP US go. They want to be a follow on. They'll follow the mob but they don't WanNa be a target of any information that contradicts the main narrative that they push. Yeah that is the initial pressure. Because I remember you know I felt that a little bit but I'm not a very politically correct guy. But what happens is if you don't immediately support whatever's being alleged by these victims will then you're a racist yourself right you're not believing them and that just shows how racist you are and then because we all want to show that we're not racist which most most of us are not but in order to show that then we just have to believe them and it's our willingness to believe what's obviously alive that's supposedly proves that we're not racist. I think it's the other way around now. I think if you're willing to give people if they're black or whatever their their minority status is if you're willing to lower the bar and just give them a pass and say look that's okay. Say If what they're saying is ally just going to believe it anyway. That's what's racist. You got to treat everybody the same. You have to have a healthy degree of skepticism. When somebody says something that doesn't make any sense? I have found from my interactions with people that have seen the film. It supports what I believe is that no one has suffered more from this trayvon hoax as they call it than the Black Youth of America and the Trayvon Oaks is two things. It's both the substitution of a legitimate phone witness which was Brittany Diamond Eugene. She went with Dr Save on by her Middle Name. Diamond Eugene for a false fake witness Rachel Jen Tell to get Zimmerman arrested and and try to get convicted. The trayvon hoax is also the name. I give to that narrative that the media plays on Black Americans every day that America is racist and you better seek shelter on the left to protect yourself from all this hatred and this is the story they push and I can tell you that beginning at the The National Press Club we had students from Howard University starkly Black College College and my security guard with these big tough guys and they all came up to me afterwards and said things like thank you. They wanted my autograph that wanted copies. They said thank you. Thank thank you. We knew something was wrong with this. I had a girl black girl emailed me and said I have a black sun and I was afraid for him to grow up in America and now I realize we got played eight. We got played. She said thank you thank you. So it's the black kids. They knew all along. Rachel wasn't the girlfriend. You don't have to tell them and you had any kind of they suffered for from this story. Because I want to point out that that whole Ferguson effect thing. We're police no longer do proactive policing they just drive by when they see crimes We've had the thirty three percent rise in homicides in urban America so it's been a crime disaster for black neighborhoods all because of this this ridiculous story. They put forth based on this case that America somehow became racist. I grew up in Tennessee in the seventies and eighties. I never heard the N.. Word in my life a black and white kids. We're all friends altogether If there were black kids were friends of mine because I like their character if there are white kids that weren't friends. It's because we didn't get along whoever I heard of this nonsense. And they want to tell us forty years later. America became racist and that's the narrative that they use to drive their political agenda. I think to the fact acted. Obviously you have a bias just like all the people that were pushing the false narrative have a biased. People can't see behind because he's a conservative or libertarian. Then obviously obviously this is all a bunch of nonsense. He's trying to push his narrative. But I think you hit the nail on the head with the election of Barack Obama. I think that scared the left in the race baiters because this was a sign that America was less racist than hey white people voted for a black man for president that shows that we're not as racist assist as everybody wants to claim so I think they needed something to divide us again. They needed something to convince people that even though we voted for a black man for present. We're actually racist. So I think this Trayvon Martin incident. I mean this was perfect and the only thing. That wasn't perfect that the guy that killed them was Hispanic so they had redefine him as a white Hispanic initially. Nobody saw photographs of him. So it was Zimmerman George Zimmerman German name. He's obviously a white guy and so I just assumed he was was white Arina jumping around four five seventy six. I mean first of all. I don't think I'm biased in any way This is a very straightforward investigation. No no literally you have. I'm not politically Abihu. This has nothing to do with politics. Economics for laws film. This film this film at my work and I don't think I'm biased in any way this film is investigation. Investigation of the facts of the case of the conclusions are actually of that. We need unity that we need healing that Americans are all brothers. This case is divided us for no reason black and white. We're all brothers under a constitution under a nation of liberty and that people divided us for no reason so my message is not controversial. It's a brotherhood. I grew up in Tennessee. All brothers black and white had Asian friends anything that wants to divide US along our most superficial qualities which skin tone is ridiculous and but this is the playbook of socialism because They they socialist policies. Don't work everything was getting worse in Black America. Unemployment fifty sixty seventy percent and they used the the tools of state of I talk about this more in the book that the Department of Justice actually sent down representatives claiming they were going to investigate when the police said there was no probable cause for arrest and they actually organized protests. The Department of Justice came down and organize protests against Zimmerman for his arrest. US With no evidence and no probable cause at that same time. I'll remind you the Obama Administration was using the irs to break up the conservative tea party movement that had SHELLAC lack them in the two thousand ten elections so socialists use the tools of state and division as we saw last week the report they were using the f. b. i. d. the OJ to maintain a hold on power because their policies don't work and when you look back at this case you can see how Obama was using thing the tools of state to maintain power and in my prior film called There's no place like Utopia. I actually interviewed a former KGB agent defector named Constantine PREPA Jansky and he said the communist always viewed black Americans as the raw material for revolution. Meaning they could just use them for their goal and I think with the revelations in this case black Americans are really realizing they've got played by these white liberals with their agendas to bring them into a socialist agenda that doesn't have anything to do with their interests. Definitely something if you look at the black lives matter. Website go to their goals transgenderism globalism things that have have nothing to do with helping black Americans. It's all the white liberal socialist agenda that they use trayvon Martin and they use them to try to bring black voters isn't there and they do the same thing with environmentalism. It's really a cover for socialism they're trying to get these socialists policies in through various doors. But you know when I said biased asked. I didn't mean that you were biased. In your filmmaking was very objective you clearly were just looking to find the truth and reporters can report the news even if they have a political perspective active. They could still be unbiased in what they're doing. My point is that since you are a conservative or libertarian and you have a philosophy then then what the critics are saying is there see he must be biased because they can attack. What you've done because it's bulletproof so they have to attack you right it's Ad Hominem attacks on you because they can deal with your research or your conclusions so all they can do is say well the Messenger is bad. Forget about the message endure scientist. I understand it's what I've experienced with coming out with this film. Certainly Tells US The story once. Again of how illegitimate the media is is in how they will refuse to do journalism and only want to promote an agenda. Yeah now have have you heard from any of the other principals that were in the film particularly okay. Have you spoken to diamond at all. Things come out and she knows that you're not just a customer buying dresses lamb her best customer or Well no because I tried to give away the close to goodwill and they wouldn't take they said they're like too provocative But no I haven't tried to contact any of the principles of because for example. Even when I met diamond I wanted to get her on. Film wanted to talk to or get handwriting. Samples was the main goal and and I hadn't really gotten through all her social media and her friends social media yet. So it wasn't the kind of Gotcha journalism where I say. Look at this. You know what are you doing in Trayvon. Everyone cellphone records. I DIDN'T WANNA. I didn't think she would admit to it either. So No there's been no attempt to go and she hasn't hasn't reached out to you at all. No no not at all and look. Obviously she was involved in something she was only sixteen. She's involved in something that has some criminal element to it so the fact that there was a fake witness who pretended to be her so I doubt she's going to be calling me or following up on any clothing sale and I don't blame her. I mean yes. She was sixteen. She was a minor. She was under incredible pressure from everybody to lie and to her credit..

"trayvon" Discussed on The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

"I mean, where did kids books? Because where did it come that you want to write? I want to write about for children? Yes. Where did that come from? Well, I really trae some of this back to Trayvon Martin and the resurgence not that shootings were not happening, right. But I think Trayvon was really a catalyst. I mean, Emmett till we go back centre a half a century ago. But today, you know, we've got this resurgence where things are being videotape or audiotape. Right? And we're seeing images and people are having to reconcile or justify or excuse people are having to see something that they might not have had to have seen. That's right because it's just social media stuff. Right. That's exactly right. And so in my house, having a son who's twenty four, I remember when Trayvon was killed calling him and saying, do, can you just, I know you wear hoodies like, and I just, can you sort of pause on that from? And he's like, mom, if I don't put my little rains, there's gold like, why do it? I know. But Trayvon, you know, the fear that any woman who's raising a black Seinfeld thinking about the reality that we never forget, but it just hadn't heightened heightened sense of conversation in my family. So sure pairing that those conversations that we always have, but we were having an a different way pairing that with looking at my Christian culture and saying, you know, my my Christian fam- saying things like, I don't see color. I raise my kids to be colorblind. And I'm like, that doesn't help because there's no color blindness. When police are pulling somewhat over, you know..

"About trayvon martin and about i witness identification reform it one point there's a geraldo rivera quote in it saying i think the hoodie is as much responsible for trayvon martin's death as george zimmerman was and i i wanted to ask you about that what was the gist of that article did he says really about memory and how we create our memory is so for an eyewitness what are factors that affect even just initial visibility like in this case the glasses of but also considering implicit racial bias and remember the trayvon martin's ramin case is whereas remiss took the skills at ice tea for a weapon and air trayvon martin's wearing a hoodie and her rivera blames trayvon on for wearing the hoodie that the hoodie is an indicator of criminal behavior and that he should have avoided it he shouldn't be wearing the hoodie but the reality is far more damning we have these studies that show that african american faces in bodies can trigger thoughts of crime and that thinking of crime can trigger thoughts of african american people so just through being an african american male trayvon martin lived with heightened likelihood of being associated with crime so these studies go beyond negative sentiments they go beyond overt discrimination they show the unconscious impact of racial stereotypes in reports that that exonerations have proven themselves to be a gateway to recognize racial bias in criminal investigations to be able to recognize problems i witness identification and in this case the problem of cross racial identification which is huge in it's played a factor in a number of dna on rations so that's that's what that pieces about i do have to say thank you to call in for reviewing that piece when it first came out here on his evidence prop blog so thank you very much for that and i'm glad to have have to talk about it again he sends me notes.
