A Look into Broadway Hit 'David Byrne's American Utopia'
"David Burns American Utopia is a grand and glorious plea for Human Connection. By Stephanie's a carrick. Sometimes to make art, you've got to build art to layer ideas, colors, values, and textures. Until you've shape, the thing that says what you want to say, David Burns American Utopia Spike, Lee's grand and glorious filmed record of the hit Broadway show of the same name coming to HBO October. Seventeenth is art that has been built a work of great joy inexpressive Nece Tower of song with room for everybody the music some numbers drawn from burns twenty eighteen album American utopia others from. 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. Than receding his fellow performers become dazzling planets in their own right sometimes, they'll face one another playing to each other even as they played a was other times they marched toward us, resolutely in groups or pairs as if to say, look at any of US individually or all of us at once you can't go wrong.

Theater, and is said to return to Broadway. Next September and we see it for what it is. This is a group of largely white middle aged people who came of age listening to talking heads as a bunch. 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. Very Much Lee even shows him riding away from the show on one and beautiful sunsets and even a bag of potato chips can be visually beguiling but somehow we always comeback to human faces looking at people burn says that's the best American Utopia is about facing the person in front of you or next to you or standing behind you and doing the work of seeing to truly see a person is a kind of song and a world filled with those songs is the ideal to get started burning his troop have hummed a few bars.

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?
"trayvon martin" Discussed on AM Joy
"It's not a stretch of the imagination to believe that trump won't go. He has always been very clear about what he would do. So we can't feign eight or shock or surprise when he does the very thing that he said, he would in an interview last year, he hinted that his followers could potentially turn violent if promotes trump told breitbart and I quote I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of bikers for trump have tough people but they don't play a tough until they go to a certain point and then it would be very bad. Very bad. Hello. You don't even need to read between the lines for that one although it seems unfathomable violence around the election actually would not be something new for America? One of my guests Jilani Cobb writes in The New Yorker the United States is considered one of the most stable democracies in the world, but it has a long mostly forgotten history of election related violence. So I'm so happy to have this panel to talk me through all this because I've been having nightmares about it joining me now thought Jason Johnson and Aaron Hanes. Gilani COBB, MSNBC, political analysts and staff writer for the New Yorker and Joshua. Guilt Sir Executive Director of Georgetown. Laws. Institute for Constance Constitutional Advocacy and Protection Josh I am so excited to have you here. I've got to go to you first on this because you have spoken out about this very issue and you said that we actually should be as concerned about trump refusing to acknowledge a peaceful transition of power but more concerned about his ability to undermine the confidence in the public about the election itself explain that to me. Look I think there's reason to worry here but then we need to get particular about what to worry about go back to twenty-six team. Donald Trump suffered the only real political setback of his short career when he lost the Iowa Caucus to Ted Cruz and he claimed within twenty four hours on twitter that crews had stolen the caucus somehow But nobody listen. It didn't matter why it's forgotten because people didn't listen. So the real question at this point in two thousand twenty isn't what Donald Trump is saying because he's saying outrageous appalling things that no major party candidate in this country has said in recent memory the real question is will people listen and that's where all of us in raise our voices to say those who play a part in the process of counting and certifying votes, and that's a group that doesn't include Donald Trump nee need to play their role regardless of what Donald Trump say. So I'm going to stick with you on this Josh because I am still very concerned. If Donald Trump says I'm just not leaving I won't go what specifically are the steps what protocols the we have in place as a country to say, Oh, no, you gotta go. So. Here's the process election day is November three though this year, we are wise not to expect results that night because they're going to be a lot of mail in ballots in May, take time to count them. The next major date is December that's the safe harbor set by federal law and any disputes within states about who won the electoral state if they're resolved by that date Congress has. pledged to respect him. That's a lot of time to work things out including through litigation if necessary, but litigation is still peaceful and Donald Trump wants you to doubt legitimacy of that but he plays no role in judges decided we'd go from that date to eventually a meeting of a joint session of Congress where Congress certifies the election results and again donald trump doesn't get to say what they certify. Okay I. got the rest of the panel Josh but I gotTa ask you. You're saying that we depend on the court system but how many in the court system are trump judges? He's already plied the court with over two hundred judges. He's already tilting the Supreme Court in his favor. The judiciary is a CO equal branch of government that has now been tainted. You've got six hundred judges total over two hundred by trump. Consider, all the other conservative justices appointed by other presidents can we rely on the courts to save us from a WANNA be dictator? Here's the thing about what Donald Trump is saying is legal arguments to the extent they even looked like legal arguments are terrible. He should lose eight, zero, nine, zero at the Supreme Court on them the things he's saying the idea that ballots shouldn't be counted after election day or mail in ballots should be counted all. That should be a loser in front of any judge appointed by any president of any political party and I'm not saying not to worry I've been one of the people who said this president is unlike others in his refusal to accept fundamental democratic norms and it's appalling. But at the same time, but we have to do is realize he's trying to play mind games and he's Okay. At that but he's a really lousy lawyer. Okay that's I have to tell you. I Google talk to you. I'm going to twitter stock you if drunk text you at two a m please understand that these are serious times that I am super concerned about so on I. got it turned to you I read it in historian here I was very interested in reading your piece that you wrote in The New Yorker where you detail that they're actually has been violence sparked around elections. Please if you can quickly tell our viewers, what happened and how that might play out again, come this November. Sure. So one of the things that we don't talk about. In the general sense is the the tradition of political violence in this country. Now, I say that in general sense because with African Americans, our entire relationship to the to the ballot to franchise has been mediated by violence. So that's a very clear precedent, but we don't know how much of this is extended beyond that. And so in the piece I, talk about you know conflicts between. WHIGS and Democrats in in Philadelphia. Culminated in a ballot placing places being burned down. Or the American party better known as the know nothings. Who instituted such great degrees of violence in the eighteen fifties that entire communities were not able to vote, and these specifically attempts to disenfranchise immigrant communities of people bringing guns to the ballot place. To the all in places we don't really have a conversation about that and the other thing just quickly add onto the the previous conversations. I don't think the threat is so much trump. Saying that won't go if it kind of solitary exercise. In. Truculent. Bratty behavior like three year old stomping his foot in refusing to eat his vegetables I. Think the bigger issue is throwing solange a disarray and so much chaos that people don't know how the public doesn't know who actually won the election and then the the.

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.

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.

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

Raising Anti-Racist Children - A Holistic Approach (with Kristen Coggins)
"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.

"If they try to find ways to say if ou- children were absolutely perfect they ended in justify for these murderers to walk free from killing them and in that can't be the case we copy now if the shoe was on the other foot and you had a model break his father? Marcus OB- receipient get a pickup trucks and chase young white man jiving in the community that White Mecca ahead of the most checkup pants in the world. Where we know what eight to Sir that they would have been arrested and they would have went to jail that nights. So why do we have to justice systems in America up of Black America and White America? It isn't fair in. It isn't right in a fortunate. This is why Amar Awkward Family had to turn to the public to get the wisdom justice turning they cost the local southeast Georgia law enforcement agencies and officials. Were never going to arrest these burks in the eyes of the law does Mr Past what we've been talking about in terms of his involvement with with law enforcement. Does that even matter given the facts of the case that we've seen so far absolutely not it. These are their minor offenses. D- that should never even be Atman is so irrelevant. What they're trying to say we have to make sure that we don't allow they're just care. Taught to me about William Brian. The person who who's cell phone video we were all able to see who is he. And how? How is it possible. That law enforcement had this video but didn't release it themselves. They've had it for seventy four days so so. Let me be clear about this Jonathan. The reason they arrested this murderous due His father sound who execute Aubrey about. Outbreak is not because they saw the video is because we the people saw the video and when we saw that video not and see and we became raised and there was a public outcry and that is the only reason they arrested these murderers William Brad the person who allegedly video This execution was driving in the other. Being that we see in the video and he was the individual who has happened to ambush Ahmad Aubrey. As he tried to escape he was running away from them as they chased him in. The pickup truck was a shotgun and a three fifty seven. Mac last question. Because I know you you have to go and I really appreciate you. Squeezing me in to a very pat very pack day as we said at the outset of this interview you and I got to know each other as a result of the killing of Trayvon Martin and the similarities between the killing of Trayvon Martin in the killing of Ahmed a arbitrary are just. They're chilling talk about those certainly Is Ear in every way. The killing of Trade Bob Mar ABA is children in every way to killing trip mar and Ahmad Aubrey. When you think about the bet that both one were killed in the met the February Trae bottled February twenty six two thousand twelve and abide on February twenty. Third Two thousand twenty the fact that both of them would have been twenty six years old this year. Had they still been living the fact that Both of them were accused of array. Even though there was no evidence to support anything of the sort The fact that both of their killers had goons Yet they were at all. Both of their kills are advancing. Some tape of sympathized stand your ground argument of the fact that both of Bitchy of us. Trayvon Martin killer guy to go home and sleep in his bed at bite at the shouted him in that gated community and savage Florida. Imagine some type of Burglary allegation Aubrey. His killer chatting came here and they got on the scene have been at my out. The at bat send so the allegation about Burger each innocent Tina shoeless community. Brenswick George the fact that both the prosecutors in the cases in Sanford Florida the local prosecutor refuse himself become some alleged conflict of interest in Bradford Jordan. Local prosecutor recused herself the Gaza some manage conflict adventures. And then when you think about the fact that both of these individuals were key about people at while law enforcement relationships Trae House. Kilda's that self appointed neighborhood watch volunteer. Whose FATHER WAS A magistrate judge. And then you had a great. Mike was almost opposite district attorney's office and so he was retired. But you have those relationships and then it took weeks for them to arrested Kayla Trayvon Martin till. We had great public outcry in two weeks in about Aubrey before they arrest his killers and we had to have great public outcry Trayvon Martin. You had to get state released Bob with Thaad applied for Smith before you got an arrest in Amman Albery. You had to get the state police involved with the Georgia Bureau investigations before. We had an arrest. And then you look at. This is the final thing you have evidence of a pursuit object to evidence of pursue in both cases with Trayvon. You have audio evidence we hit a chase and you hear the show that kills trae bond. Where the big difference in abide Aubrey? We get to see the pursuit with is that horrific video where they chased him and then they kill him with that shot. Good being pumped up. That is the big difference. In these cases we now have oculus throws of what took place in the killing of about break in. It is reminiscent of what we would have imagine happened in the nineteen twenties. But this is two thousand twenty. And we're seeing. That happened in America. It reminds you of those Lynch mobs that when they cheeto. Let people backing yesteryears. They will be accountability and they will go home and sleep in their beds at night and for seventy days. That is exactly what we had in America and thousand twenty attorney Benjamin crump.

On February twenty third chased him let community until they caught up with and then they executed him like a modern day. Mitch if crump's name sounds familiar. It's because he was the lawyer for the family of Trayvon Martin. The seventeen year old shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida on February. Twenty Sixth Twenty twelve listen to crump talk about the eerie similarities between the February. Twenty twenty killing of the MoD arbitrary and the February twenty twelve killings of Trayvon Martin. Right Down Attorney Benjamin crump thank you very much for coming on the PODCAST. Thank you fabric down at their decades covering. They're for the story. So you and I got to know each other eight years ago because of the the killing of trayvon Martin and the similarities between the killing of Trayvon Martin and the killing of a Marbury are really. It's kind of Irie. Could you bring us up to up to speed on on the facts of the case as as we talk right? Now I'll tell you have ever similar those fat X. Between tricky behind and Ahmad Aubrey navigate tragically Ahmad. Aubrey was changed by a murderous duo of FOB. Said to a Gregory and Travis met Michaels and another man then William Brian who has yet to be arrested ads on this day. He is alleged to beat the individuals driving other a ambushed Ahmad and was taken the video recording of this execution ago. By saying a I have a teacher Johnson and Jive was on and he was a person who with are routinely. He liked to stay in shape as many people. A heat with said show as for whatever reasons we believe. We know why they did it but they suspected him of a burglary and a jumped into their pickup truck shotgun. Jonathan and a three fifty seven magnum and they chased him that community into they caught up with him and then they execute it him like a modern day mentioned. And we see on that. Video is so tragic Washing see that video. You can't see and that's what happens. We watched the execution of his young on all black man killed. We believe because he was racially profile. And the police show up and they take the words of the killer's apparently because the killers are allowed to go home and sleep in their bed. Bites while on. Albury is taken to the more you know There are so many things here In the The facts of the case that you just spelled out and I just want it there. Is the police report as it was filed in the moments after after the shooting after the killing where it says the witnesses said that arbitrary looked like a suspect who had been Breaking into that particular house and that They saw him quote unquote hauling ass down the street and when you look at the video I WanNa talk about how we got this video to begin with but when you look at the video. He's not hauling. Ass Johnson. He's doing what most people in America he is. Simply interest is and you know you put in contact. They come up with some a believable reasons. The killers down. It's you'd think about a walking while driving while black Both in general it is apartment literal while blatch Trae Bob more walking home while blatch may is submitted things Attia Jefferson sitting in her house living while black and now we come to Amman Albury and he's just Jonathan Wa black. They suspected him for that. All right let's talk about the McMichael's Chavis Michael Is the person who had the shotgun And fired the shots. That killed Ahmed Arbitrary and George. Mcmichael is the father who is standing in the back of the pickup truck with a three fifty seven magnum. A talk about why Gregory McMichael in particular is problematic in this case. Certainly we believe that the police did not arrest these murderous fob and said do also the cost Gregory met. Michael was a former police officer and had a thirty year. Employment will as a detected as a DA with the local district attorney. Glenn cowards so we believe they did not want to arrest their friends their colleagues and so that is what reason. We suspect Jonathan that they didn't arrest him. The other reason is even more heinous. We believe because Aubrey was a young for American that the police simply took the word of his white careless that he was up to no good that he was committing a burglary without doing any of appropriate investigation. Apparently because you know if he was A. Where's the burglar's mask? Where's the Burgers toes whereas the burger bags you know whereas the incident allegations of burglaries in this neighborhood? In the past says they suspended he had committed burglaries before. Or is it simply? They know that he wasn't a burger but it didn't matter because they had made a decision that they were not going to rest their France. Who happened to me? The killing this young black man and how many how many people had to recuse themselves from this case. So the District Attorney District Attorney's I think three were on the third one right. Now we are on the third district attorney right now. The First District Attorney Jackie Jackson I had to recuse herself at Ledge conflicts adventurous and May as also a big controversial Bruin thousand even with police saying well. Maybe we need to file. Charges have been list that she told them not to file charges now. She disputes this claim. But that issue should be a best wail furthermore Bud Heart in Waycross Georgia district attorney debt also had to recuse himself but Nash Conflicts. Elba Jonathan This district. Attorney born to write a memorandum of law a memorandum from his perspective that there was no criminal that took place and that the killing of Abbad al-boraey by John. Greg and Travis met Michaels with justified weekday. That is completely inappropriate. If he had a conflict of interest the he should abide by the rules canons of ethics and not try to put his thumb on the scales of justice to try to make. It is phrasing colleagues who he has a conflict of interest from sitting in judgment. Now you've been mentioning The the name of Barnhart his his name is Barnhill George Barnhill but here's the thing the New York Times in its story about this about this. Killing has this paragraph. I want you to respond to this. It says in an email Mr Barnhill wrote to the State Attorney General's office on April Seventh He asked to be taken off the case stating that his son an assistant district attorney in the Brunswick Prosecutors Office had handled a felony probation revocation case involving Mr Arbitrary. He also said Gregory McMichael had helped with a quote cravey's prosecution of our Berry Court records show that Mr Berry was convicted of shoplifting and violent and of violating probation in two thousand eighteen. According to local news reports he was indicted five years earlier for taking a handgun to a basketball game. So I have two questions I do. You contend that the relationships between Mr Barnhill and Mr McMichael play mightily in there being he and his son being able to stay out of jail for seventy four days absolutely. I think it was the good old boy network that was working against the interests of justice for the dead of black man and working for the bits. It of these white men who had upped pre-bus Admit with Law Enforcement and were colleagues as absolutely. This is what helped them to remain three sleeping in their own beds at night. Seven four days while it was dead in the ground Now the second question is and what's in that paragraph from the New York Times story that I read our job Mr Berries involvement in the criminal justice system. Can you talk to the the previous the previous prosecution? The the Being convicted of shoplifting. Violation of probation the Being indicted for taking a handgun to a basketball game. What do you say to people who read those those things from Mr Bury's arteries past and that gives them pause? Where is they're trying to assassinate his care to them and they have a SAS innate.

Certainly we believe that the police did not arrest these murderous fob and said do also the cost Gregory met. Michael was a former police officer and had a thirty year. Employment will as a detected as a DA with the local district attorney. Glenn cowards so we believe they did not want to arrest their friends their colleagues and so that is what reason. We suspect Jonathan that they didn't arrest him. The other reason is even more heinous. We believe because Aubrey was a young for American that the police simply took the word of his white careless that he was up to no good that he was committing a burglary without doing any of appropriate investigation. Apparently because you know if he was A. Where's the burglar's mask? Where's the Burgers toes whereas the burger bags you know whereas the incident allegations of burglaries in this neighborhood? In the past says they suspended he had committed burglaries before. Or is it simply? They know that he wasn't a burger but it didn't matter because they had made a decision that they were not going to rest their France. Who happened to me? The killing this young black man
Rebecca Solnit: Recollections of My Nonexistence
"Of my nonexistence. It's a profound book. It moved me deeply and let me say furthermore that this is the first time we're doing a show under these corona virus situations. I'm in my home. Rebecca's in her home and we're going to talk to one another without being able to see one another a real I for bookworm. Hi Rebecca Hello Michael. What do you mean by my nonexistence? I had the title before I wrote the Book and the book in some ways a reflection on it. It's most of all about all the forms of violence against women. The literal violence that leaves some women. Did some woman silent. Some woman pushed out of full participation in different social arenas but I also wrote about other social groups game in native people etc who face other kinds of erasure and I also wrote about reading as a positive form of non existence where you withdraw from your own life and your own physical being to enter another world and kind of float disembodied in somebody else's imaginings in somebody else's language. Wow let me say that as I was reading the book although I regard myself as I hope sensitive gay man I was made aware of how frightening it is used say at a certain point partially ironically that in your childhood your hobby was not getting raped. To what extent is that true. I-in it's completely true and I was really writing about my adolescence and early adulthood. We've had a really valuable and significant conversation. Last several years thanks to black lives matter and the response to the killing of Trayvon Martin about black parents giving talk to their sons about the dangers. They faced because of their race and gender. Most girls get different forms of the talk. Telling them often in roundabout evasive ways that they can't wear this. They can't do that. They can't aspire to this. They can't move freely. They can't go out at this hour. They shouldn't go to the party. They shouldn't have a drink and that it's entirely on them to prevent men from harming them and that society has no interest in taking responsibility for that but Democrat violence against women. So as young woman I had to constantly think about safety and strategy as I move through the world and every situation walking out in the world public transit meetings classes social situations parties Cetera and it was constant and it took a toll. I remember when I was first in college. This is around. Nineteen seventy the first feminist movements. Were starting in it in phone stickers. That said this exploits women but it wasn't yet clear that we were in a culture that exploits women altogether and that when I started to join gay men's liberation groups. We discovered how much we had grown up being teased being heard being disregarded in the language of the Normative Patriarchal Heterosexual Culture held one. Live in such a culture. You know I think if you add up those who are not male those who are not white. Those are not straight those who are not conventionally able bodied et CETERA. You end up with the majority of facing these forms of non existence. I think that you know it is a burden that people shouldn't have to carry That a lot of kinds of people carry these burdens and I wrote this book partly to try and home in on some of the nuances and complexities around gender. That I didn't feel we're talking about enough but I also wrote this book very much as a first person account of my formative years in San Francisco and gay men were a joy and support and inspiration in those years You know I lived about a neighborhood away. You know a fifteen minute walk from the Castro to see these men who had said we're going to refuse our assignment. We're going to refuse our role because we've decided it's worth paying the price rather than the price of avoiding who. We are and conforming. But I also WanNa talk about another form of non existence that really had an impact. And I think has an impact on young queer people even now on people of color the non-existence of being given reading material stories histories in which people like you don't matter don't exist aren't the protagonists. I grew up reading. Very male centered white centred literary Canon and I should say Christian centered and I feel like there was a non existence that to imagine myself as the protagonist of the great stories. I had to D- imagine myself as a woman and it always felt like I was wavering. Between who I was in my bodily identity and who I was if I wanted to be like Odysseus Sir Lord Jim more so many of the adventurous people in the books that I love when I was growing up the used to as a regular thing on once book reports ask. Who Do you identify with in this book? And since there were no queer characters and no Jewish characters except extremely negative. One says in the case of the sun also rises. I mean hemingway was particular corporate for giving us no one that we could know who would be like us. We would want to grow up into and my parents intern. They were the children of immigrants or immigrants themselves and they were given Ivanhoe to read when they got to school and suddenly they were saying words like pretty young maiden where did that come from. They weren't learning American English in their English classes. That will earning Sir Walter Scott so when I was reading your book. Rebecca this idea of non existence and the ways in which it's pressed upon us move me so deeply that I'll tell you the truth I was breaking into tears every ten or fifteen pages. Wow thank you I will say if I'm not mistaken. Ivanhoe has a beautiful Jewish named Rebecca in it but it is a very anachronistic archaic book. Rebecca Soni is an explorer of the American West and when she became involved with her younger brother in anti-nuclear demonstrations. She was there at the test sites in Nevada. Exploring what it was lied to beyond Shoshoni lands. Yes yes and actually that was such a formative place for me. I like to say the Nevada test site taught me to write because the place was so extraordinarily it demanded. I learned to integrate the different modes. In which is writing journalism criticism and kind of lyrical personal essays but also was a place in which the protagonists were Western. Schone elders Mormon down winters atomic survivors from Japan Lesbian Pagans and anarchists and just really remarkable coming together of a lot of people who already weren't part of the central narrative to exert real power make real alliances about the future of the world against the dominant narrative being told by Cold War America and then nuclear physicists and politicians who were mostly white men and it was an extraordinary movement with many

"His trial for murdering Trayvon Martin. He was not that evidence was not admitted. So. It's just an example of how these things are connected that actually violence in the household violence against females usually, but sometimes against man, certainly violence against kids is the biggest predictor of all other violence, but we don't connect it. Our police forces for for instance, has in general police families have four times the rate of domestic violence that families in general have if we address that not to get rid of these guys. Treat it to understand it to stop it. There would not be so much racist. Police violence either in general, I think about like the movement has to grow as people grow and vice versa. That has to be a part of the work. There was a point in my life where I literally like I drove to Ferguson anybody the street. The first thing I ever did was make these amazing sandwiches in somebody's living room. Like, I quit my job slept in the car on the side of the road. Like all these things, and that was a point in my life where I was like that was I do it. I was ready to do that. And that way and now I'm in the world differently. And like the move like the movement dishes. She'll be placed for all of us as we gross. I think that that is a part of it. You know, Cleo Wade who's a mutual friend of ours. She always talks about activism, just organized, storytelling and part of it. We have to do is tell the story in a way that mobilizes people increase on ramps and off ramps. It's why when I talk about the police, I believe we can live in a world without the police. I know that some people that's just not the way to enter into the conversation with them. Then like if I start their people like they're like, but what I say to them. I'll say things like, you know, in California. There's a lot of literally. Says a investigation I'm an officer that lasts more than a year can never is on discipline, regardless of the outcome. You can love the police that doesn't make sense, right and Cleveland, the rule says that all also disciplinary records are destroyed every two years, you can let the police and that don't make sense right now one hundred years ago, we were sleeping people's risk and letting them bleed out and calling the healthcare and that was not a good solution. And I think that we're in a similar place with how we think about safety and policing today. But I get that like part of the choir is like finding that him that people can come first. So they can learn how to sing later should we? Well, I'm sure I know your answer. But should we be hopeful? And what gives us cause to be hopeful right now, I know because of your podcasts, even though we're just meeting for the first time that you to like me. Okay. Because hope is a former planning, you know, if you if your hopes weren't real inside, you couldn't even hope them, right? So what? To not to be hopeful is is to be defeated immediately. It's it's that hope and vision of what could be even if it's five minutes from now, or you know, if it's five years for whatever it is that Kim says the strength to proceed toward it. So don't do. I know what's going to happen. No. I I don't know what's going to happen. But some I mean hope hope is absolutely crucial, and we so need younger people because they are mad as hell because. No, it should be better. Right. So. You know, it's just hope is a vision of what you're going to do the next day in the next, and what this person might respond, and I'm all for hope hall ISM. And I'm so grateful that. That you're the both. You're angry. You're hopeful. Thank you. And I'd say simply I'm proud to be in the community of so many people who are ready to do something about the things in the world. And I think about being on the stage today, it's like what does it mean to not living somebody shadowed but to live in their glow. And I think that that is like the best of what we can do it each other Gloria Steinem is a prominent feminist author, and activist and derail McKesson is an author and civil rights activists whose new book is called on the other side of freedom. The case.
