TikTok To Sue Trump Administration Over Ban, As Soon As Tuesday
"The initial headlines was that trump was going to ban TIKTOK well. Then there was another headline saying trump was going to back down banning TIKTOK. Because there's a chance that Microsoft was going to purchase the talk property in the United States have their own US division and Microsoft buying that. But now trump has issued an executive order regarding Tick Tock and apparently rather than banning the APP itself, they took a different tack and are banning the service from the United States meaning that you cannot interact with Tick Tock Company. That's the supposedly how. Little bit more here from from NPR tug confused they talking about the video sharing APP being hugely popular and this the APP is actually planning on filing a lawsuit against the trump administration. As soon as Tuesday, according to a person directly involved with the forthcoming suits be filed in the District Court in. South? Cal California where Tiktok American operations are based NPR's learned. The suit will argue that trump's far-reaching action is unconstitutional because it failed to give the company a chance to respond. It also alleges the administration's national security justification for the order is baseless. Saying it's on pure speculation and conjecture. The has no findings. Of fact, just reiterates rhetoric about China that has been kicking around the White House declined to comment on the expected litigation but defended the executive order from President saying quote, the administration is committed to protecting the American people from all cyber related threats to critical infrastructure, public health and safety and our economic and national security they claim. So what they're doing is under the executive order quote any transaction unquote between a US citizen and Tick Tock. Beijing. Based parent company. Bite dance will be outlawed in forty five days for national security reasons seems like it could be interpreted very broadly. Yes. I suspect the interpretation would be that a transaction would mean you opening the APP you sending any sort of data to it you doing anything with asking support for some help. While you're installing it down, that seems like what is a transaction under the definition of this particular order right? I think it's any interaction with sometimes the transaction means a monetary thing right but you don't pay for Tiktok at least I. Don't think you right. I mean, maybe they have some sort of a paid to your. But I guarantee you the one, hundred million people or whatever that are using it aren't aren't paying for. One hundred million I, don't I honestly don't know it may be more than one hundred, million I. Don't know if that's in the United States it's probably worldwide or whatever but it's a very, very popular APP. The APP has also they say, they talk a little bit about you know the short videos are usually like fifteen seconds very, very short. The APP has also been used to antagonize the president including thousands and. Thousands of teens reserved tickets to the president's rally in Tulsa Oklahoma with no intention of going inflating the trump campaign's expectations for the event and causing embarrassment over the disappointing turns man bed. No Orangemen said. If the presidential ban goes into effect the APP may no longer be able to send software updates rendering tiktok unmanageable on smartphones and eventually nonfunctional. So they're considering a transaction I think to me in any data moving from one to another.

When Covid Subsided, Israel Reopened Its Schools. It Didn’t Go Well.
"Since its debut and twenty seventeen, the Chinese APP tick tock has become one of the fastest growing social media tools with more than eight hundred, million active users. The APP lets users make short videos that are often shared across the Internet, but Tiktok isn't all fun games for months. Now, a lot of the attention about the APP has been focused on the national security concerns and the collection of user data, and as a result, the platform has been banned in India, by multiple branches of the US military and by Wells Fargo employees most recently however, president trump took aim at tiktok himself by threatening to ban the APP. We're looking at Tiktok we may be banning TIKTOK. We may be doing some other things, a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So we'll see what happens but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respected dictum. Those remarks were before reports surfaced that Microsoft was pursuing a deal to buy TIKTOK in a press conference at the White House yesterday president trump claimed Microsoft or any other company would have to wait until September fifteen to acquire the APP and would be expected to give a percentage of the profit from the sale to the US Treasury. Joining me now is Graham Webster editor of digit China Project at Stanford University's Cyber Policy Center and a fellow at New America Graham thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me. And Cowan Rosenblatt is a youth and Internet cultural reporter for NBC, News. Dot Com callen thanks for being with us as well. Glad to, be here. Cowen who is the average tiktok user? The average tick tock user really is is a dynamic question because there is a huge range of different people who are using the APP but I'd say the most common person you're gonNA find is someone who is either at the tail end of high school or College who is definitely a solidly in generation the Gen Z. and he was using me APP mostly for fun to do dance challenges trends an engaged with communities that serve to their world. Graham. All of that sounds pretty basic I mean it doesn't sound like there's anything to be concerned about so far what type of data does tiktok collect from its users Graham? We'll TIKTOK is like a lot of social media companies these days It's using an AI driven or machine learning driven algorithm to figure out which content to to individual users. So to get this accomplished, they pay attention to obviously whatever you post that also you know what posts on your feed you look at how long you look at them where your device location is They also tried to track individual users like many apps do by looking at things like screen size and operating system and of course, they have a fair amount of information about your social graph, your your connections to friends and other people that you follow. And so what were some of the concerns around the data collection that way Graham given that it feels like there's a lot of, as you mentioned, other social media platforms and advertisers and the like that are tracking everything that we do already. Why? Why is Tiktok being highlighted here and banned in some of the institutions that we mentioned at the top Well, the basic reason is that tick tock is owned by a Chinese company named Bite Dance and they're a fairly new social media company. They had a breakout a few years ago in China with an APP called junior Tokyo that that is a you know an algorithm, IQ news feed and this is China's first big breakout internationally in terms of social media APPS and really getting take-up in in many different countries around the world not just the United States. So there's A concern that data collected by Tick Tock could end up in the hands of the Chinese company or the Chinese government and wild tick. Tock says that it stores all US user data in the US or in Singapore we don't really have a good way as a society right now to check that type of thing and to make sure that companies commit you when they commit to you know storing data and the Safeway making sure that they're actually doing that. Doesn't sound like we have a lot of that in the United States either though Graham. I mean, we have constant security breaches left and right Right. Well, the United States doesn't have a central data governance or data security or privacy Regulatory System the most prominent example of one globally as Europe, which has the general data protection regulation called the GDP are, and that governs things like when an apper services going to collect your personal information they have to gain certain types of consent and follow certain types of rules and there's also kind of limits the. Idea that if you collect data for a certain reason that you got consent for you shouldn't be able to use it for other reasons and that type of governance is just not that prominent in the US partially because the big US social media companies are not especially keen to have their practices heavily regulated they. They find GDP are in Europe to be burdensome and You know get in the way of making money. Kalland back in June president trump organized a rally in Tulsa Oklahoma and rumor has it that tiktok users promoted buying tickets for the event and didn't show up so that the event would be empty. What do we know about how that rubbed of the administration? So, what we know is it seemed to sort of frustrate the administration. Now, there's no evidence that the Tiktok users and K pop stands who are fans of Korean pop music that they had any impact on turnout. We are going through a global pandemic. There are a lot of factors going on right now. So it is really hard to know sort of what that impact was. But what we do know is it likely inflated expectations for turnout. The administration was planning to have a second rally after the main rally in Tulsa. which they then had to cancel, and so we think that it really messed with them. It was a it was a real genuine troll on the part of these tic TAC users against the president, and it really seemed to rub him the wrong way and there are lots of Tiktok users young first time voters who are telling me that when trump said, he wanted to ban this APP that was a retaliation for what they did the stunt they pulled the prank they pulled in Tulsa most what they think is happening. That's what they think is happening why there is no evidence that that's the president's line of thinking but that's what these eighteen to twenty two year olds are telling me that that's their beliefs. Cowan, we talked about The you know whether or not talk users actually had any effect on the trump rally in Tulsa back in June but more more directly here wondering if you're seeing any more political movement on the APP, whether it's a pro trump or pro biden or anti-trump anti, Biden has it started to move away from dance and song and move towards more political leaning so far. It can do both things at once actually. So there are still the dance trends. There are massive accounts that are just enjoying music on the APP but we see a lot of politics on Tiktok now maybe more than ever some young people are telling me they feel that because their home in quarantine and because politics ramping up nationally as we get closer to this election that they're seeing more and more politics in their feet, and what we're seeing is a not so much pro by content, but a lot of anti-trump content and I WANNA be clear. There is Republican Todd Democrat tiktok liberal Tick Tock conservative Tiktok. But what it appears to be is a lot of generation. Z.. Has a anti-trump sentiment and that does not mean they heavy pro biden sentiment. But things that we see our young people say, Hey, on this day, everyone go to president, trump's campaign store and put these products in your cart. But don't check out because allegedly that messes with their inventory or everyone on this day go to president trump's twitter account and report account, and let's see we can get a taken down. So we're still seeing these sort of organized movements sort of Troll, the president and a lot of discussion of politics but whether or not that is in in favor of vice, President Biden or in favor of president trump is sort of yet to be seen. Graham LE. Let's talk a little bit. But I mean, it sounds like tiktok users are for the most part having fun on the site sort of trying to do the things that Collina's talking about here but. On a more serious note, the trump administration has been trying to ban the APP. They're citing national security concerns, concerns over censorship by the Chinese government. Valid are any of those concerns really given what you know about China US politics Well I think it's you have to separate them out So the the concern about censorship I think is legitimate there was there was an example a little while ago where it looked like some of the censorship that they would do in China restricting conversations about things the Communist Party doesn't like discussed had bled over into the international product Now, Tiktok said that they were addressing that wasn't intended again, we don't really. Have a good way in the United States to check up on that and to kind of make sure that speech isn't being censored one way or the other the national security issue I think requires a lot more imagination Now, you know as was mentioned, the the military has has told service members to not use the APP and I think that makes a good amount a sense you know if if you're concerned about an APP Having links to a potential adversary There's all sorts of possibilities of ways that it could be exploited even just using location data of of service members or people who work in sensitive facilities. But if you don't work in sensitive facilities, if you're just sort of going around and and and doing the fun things and engaging in some of the political discourse that Cowan was mentioning you know there's not. A real big national security issue there a I will say that some people think that collecting the full aggregate totality of US Tiktok users could be used later in a analysis to try to do something, but it's really imaginative at this point whereas I think the censorship concerns a real and could be checked on and data privacy concerns are real but should be able to be checked on as well. What about the fact that we we just heard from Ian Bremmer, the president of the Eurasia Group in the previous segment talking about how the United States is viewed internationally in terms of our response to the corona virus. But I did ask in also about his thoughts on what this Tiktok dust up between president trump and China what seemed to Be Rooted in and he said, you know this is also part of trump's sort of relationship with how he views China and Chinese technology he's gone after while way he's gone you know talked a lot about five G. technologies. So do you see that I mean? Do you see that as a pattern in how the president views technologies specifically that's coming out of China. Yeah I think the you know the trump administration's been. Pursuing a campaign of you know escalating what could be a new type of Cold War approach to China and a lot of it is wrapped up in technology and and I think the focus on Tiktok really makes the most sense. If you consider it a distraction from two things I is a distraction from actual problems with China you know the the trump administration got this phase one trade deal which didn't really get to the deep issues of subsidy and market access and intellectual property protection. And, on the other hand, it's distracting from the fact that a lot of these security concerns should apply across many apps. Why just tick Tock you know you're talking about including American made apps like facebook and twitter. Yeah I mean the concerns are different when the parent company is in China but there are really unaccountable data collection methods going on across ad networks and data brokers are building profiles of Americans and people in other countries that can be purchased just with money and you know it's not only add companies that by this data governments can get it to. Callan, as we sort of touched on this earlier. But of course, we I, say this all the time we're heading into one of the most consequential presedential elections in my lifetime at least social media is constantly changing is tiktok going to be a thing and twenty twenty and November, or is it going to be eclipse with something else or it'll change the? Will it change the election? Calvin what are your thoughts on that? I don't see Tiktok going away anytime soon, as long as the president allows it to operate in the United States I think we're gonNA see more is eight organizing on the APP among young people and I think we're GONNA see. TIKTOK. As long as Microsoft buys it or another company comes in to allow it to operate in the US I think it's going to stick around for a long time. I mean the president did Callan has also asked that Microsoft give money to the Treasury. If it makes this sale, we is anybody else interested in buying tiktok or is it just Microsoft right now? I don't think anyone else has come out as far as I'm aware and said that they are interested in purchasing Tik. Tok I think Microsoft even just recently confirmed that they were interested in this conversation, but it appears a deal needs to be made by September fifteenth. So if someone's going to buy it, it has to happen soon. Well you heard it here I guess I callan Rosenblatt is a youth internet culture reporter for NBC News Dot Com and Graham Webster is the editor of the digit China Project at the Stanford? University Cyber Policy Center and he's also a fellow
Trump wants to ban Tik Tok
"Actually let's talk a little bit about Tick Tock today I performed this morning. An Act of rebellion. I downloaded installation talk on my iphone because who knows how much longer I'll be able to do it it's very confusing I don't know what's going on. Tick Tock, which is owned by the Chinese company Bite Dance Safest that committee. Or foreign investment in the United. States apparently is investigating I. Think they actually issued a ruling saying that like, wow away tick tock was a threat to the United States One of the ways tiktok became really big as by acquiring a couple years ago musically, which is really I think from what I see on. tiktok kind of the backbone of what Tick Tock is these days, which is lip synching or acting or dancing to an original track It's it's very entertaining. It's a it's probably the most engaging social network out there. But apparently, it's a threat to our way of life. On Friday the president on Air Force One. said that he was about to ban it as soon as yesterday. From the United States I'm not sure under what law safest can do it I think. But I don't know if the president can by executive order banning application. then for the last week Microsoft Been. Negotiating to buy the American rights to talk to kind of create a tick tick Tock America that would be separate from the Chinese bite. Dance. TIKTOK. But then the president says I'M GONNA ban it but I don't want anybody to buy it. So, micro-. Microsoft said. Threw their hands off and said figure it out and there. They didn't end the conversation with bite dance. Apparently, they were fairly close but they're not forwarding it until they find out what happens I'm GonNa make a prediction. Nothing is going to happen except now people are going to download and use TIKTOK. Brianna is tick tock a threat to national security. It's not a unique threat to national security. We need to have a conversation about the kinds of information social media APPS are able to download from our phones. We all remember the scandals of facebook on android downloading your tire phone list gang everyone you've ever called. We need to have a conversation about that, but there's there's really no evidence that what Tiktok is pulling is any greater than what you know facebook instagram these other social media sites are. Pulling so far. So we need a wider discussion about that. How's it just want to say I wish I could tell you this was just trump in the Republicans that would make me very happy. My heart broke today to see Chuck Schumer on the Sunday morning shows advocating the same thing tech talk. So you know it's it is we need to have a conversation about national security and the amount of information were giving up but it's I think. To just focus on TIKTOK. Sign of. Phobia. Or Zena Phobia Paris, you seem like a Tiktok user. I that's only because you're younger than. I. Did recently re downloaded when this whole. Wanted to make sure that I had it. I'm sure is a common response. I agree with everything the Brown said in the sense that I don't know I've been particularly disturbed by. The reactions to take talks, data collection both from the left and right and just. Experts in the tech field generally over the past couple of months because it is definitely coming from a place of seeing phobia. I mean, we have so many different. American. Made APPS that. Do many of the same things I mean one thing that I've seen noted quite often as to talk has the ability to see what you've. You know copied near Clipboard when guests so do most of the apps you have on your phone. Is Operatives. It's not a tiktok specific problem. This came up because of Iowa's fourteen, which is in public Beta now so people are suddenly using it and dozens of applications. I. Think must be a library that they all subscribe to infect somebody a couple of weeks ago. Somebody told me that it was. Ad Library I use of what a clearly noninvasive program from panic software Call Code editor, which lets me log into my Server. with SSh and and edit files and things like that and it was. I got the same thing that you get on Iowa's fourteen O, coders looking clipboard every time I typed to character. Now I don't think coded only panic software famous for an FTP program and this H. Program is at spying on me obviously, they're not. they're using the same code library. So it's a, it's a, it's a bug. That's what Lincoln Microsoft's linked in said as well. So. I think it's also just one of those things where if you're building an APP especially in. The Tom I. Don't know there was a time when absence of for being built were there wasn't this conversation about security and privacy. Why would map designers not take the position of? Yeah. All the things maybe we'll need that information talk said quite credibly. We're just looking to see if you put a url on your clipboard so we can pasted in. That seems credible I. Don't know if you need to do it every single time I type of character that seems like more that book I can tell you firsthand from developing an Iowa it's often easiest just to get it submitted to the APP store to take a bunch of permissions and It's just it's like you're trying to debugging in. Store, to accept it is just quirky. I can't tell you how many times I in other APP developers have. Just it's a very, very quirky system. So I, think this is just in Beta. I think it's really important to point out as far as the impetus for this I personally do not think it's a coincidence that tiktok was widely credited for disrupting trump's Tulsa rally a couple of weeks ago and Sarah Cooper is so famous for she's making five star she's she's amazing and those videos are brutal to trump and I I don't. That's a coincidence. She does trump limps licks lip sync. And I was talking to a friend said you know is the trump on TV I can't understand what he's saying but then I watched Cooper and that makes sense Sarah ads expressions and Gestures and all kinds of makes sense all of us and so I don't think the president should be so quick to to not like Sarah purchase he's adding context Might have something to do with it certainly in his mind because we know. You know. I don't know what he's going to do to Cape Pop stands because they were the other the other group that apparently figured out that you could register took on trump's team has got to be wise enough to know you can't take on the capons stands. Being. The capon stands the United States would crumble. Yes. That would be it would be over right. You just can't win against the K pop stands So. They were both advocating people sign up for the Tulsa Rally and not not show and Honestly the fault lies with Brad Par Scout trump's former campaign manager and his campaign team for believing all those registrations and building a giant outdoor stage. Giant parking lot so that the millions of people who are going to be coming because they all registered would have somewhere to be, and then I loved. Well, I shouldn't say that that sounds partisan was interesting to see the one person with the baby stroller in that giant area and the rest of the arena half full or third full So I could see why he might be a little angry about that. Is there. No, Matt. And I'm not putting you in the position of speaking for the government I want to say that in fact, we should have said that. That Nazi for the. Federal government but you also having worked Akiko Google you understand how you know a little bit about how this stuff works the the there's not any proof that while way for instance, has ever done anything. Particularly Evil they've done some commercial espionage apparently, but nothing could particularly evil but there's the potential if they run the entire five G. Network that at some point, they could inject malicious software to the network or shut it down. Is What could Even even sounds stupid asking it. What could take time do? It's the forbidden APP. If you think about it if you don't have it on your phone, it could disappear at any time. No I think it's it's less about that although you do see companies like Amazon saying, Hey, on your work phone or work device please don't install. And they did it. Because they realize Oh we do business with these guys. Let's not this them off but wells Fargo did that I think the Department of Defense I don't know about you sds, but it's reasonable if you've got a company phone. Probably shouldn't have facebook or instagram on it either you right? Yeah. I keep my twitter and all that stuff very far away from work phone. It's my it's my personal account, but you know it's I can understand why people want to have just a a sense of okay. Let's be careful. Let's see what's going on and then You know just making sure that you can depend on the. Tools all the way down reflections on trusting trust. You can put things into a compiler, which then you can remove it from the source code and turns out that thing can stay in the compiler for years and years and years. So you know you don't WanNa be load bearing on any particular technology that you can't quite vouch for his guesses what people are thinking, what would be the legal? How could a president ban an APP in the United States I was thinking about this in the one thing the United States government is very effective at is We we we went after Isis in I sell at a very effective way instead of this Ip address to a recruitment site you can't access it. So my my guess would be the executive order would basically grafter the ISP's and say you can't go to this particular ISP but think about that I know of VPN products is sponsor show sponsored mind and to know how few seconds would take the average teenager together VPN account to just keep their tiktok going. Yesterday I downloaded the tiktok cap the first video that came up credit account 'cause I forgot my previous password was a if Tiktok it's banned. Here's how to get around it. You don't Vpn you can go into the settings, your phone, change your country of origin to Canada and then You're great. Exactly I mean it's not enforceable basically So I mean one thing Leo I think. Matt and I would probably agree that we do need to. I don't know if it's more oversight from the point of sale like on the APP store or Google play I I don't know if it's kind of an External Code audit policy for these kinds of APPs on their own by countries I. Think we agree we we need more oversight and we need to make sure all of these are not stealing data from people and just to get people very brief history lesson you know Edward Snowden had some very serious allegations about our own spying agencies using. Facebook to gather intelligence on people all around the world there's evidence for that. There's no hard evidence at this point the Tiktok is doing any of this. So if we're serious about doing this, the answer isn't to further balkanize the United States from the rest of the world the answers to form coalitions with other countries say look if you're going to operate here in, you know if you're gonNA have the software operating in our country here, the rule you have to follow you can't just arbitrarily download people's Phone books, there's going to be You know civil fights. That's clearly the way to go is got to be bigger than just tiktok. I'm just looking at Tick Tock on my iphone. It has access to my photos because I gave it access to my photo so I could put a profile picture on there. it gives me notifications I could turn that off. That's that's a push though that's not a poll. Background APP refresh means it can run in the background and cellular data doesn't ask for. location data doesn't ask for I mean facebook asks for ten times more. That's why I don't have it on my phone. I. mean the worst thing Tiktok does is waste millions of hours a productivity, and maybe that's a recent ban I don't know. But I, just I don't understand how it could be used. If it's not getting location permissions, how could it be used maliciously and I think it is getting location position. I know that I've know anecdotally at least from a couple of friends whenever they let's say go to Connecticut to visit family or something they will suddenly get Connecticut. Themed Tiktok content or something similar. Okay. that could just be from. Connection you can get that from the IP address so they could get a Geo location through IP address without asking APP without telling apple that they're doing that that would make sense. Okay. So they're getting them. Every cannon probably, I hate to say it probably does do that.

And I was talking to a friend said you know is the trump on TV I can't understand what he's saying but then I watched Cooper and that makes sense Sarah ads expressions and Gestures and all kinds of makes sense all of us and so I don't think the president should be so quick to to not like Sarah purchase he's adding context Might have something to do with it certainly in his mind because we know. You know. I don't know what he's going to do to Cape Pop stands because they were the other the other group that apparently figured out that you could register took on trump's team has got to be wise enough to know you can't take on the capons stands.

Obituary: Herman Cain
"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats
Supreme Court Victory, Progress for Native Americans
"One of the big rulings from this year Supreme Court term was mcgirt versus Oklahoma. The five to four decision declared a swath of the state near Tulsa to be part of the Muskogee creek nations reservation enforcing nineteenth century treaties the US made with the creek that landmark recognition of native American rights could lead to nearly half of the state being classified as Indian country but it also. Wrestled with questions of sovereignty on native American reservations. This is an issue that native American legal advocates Sarah dear who is a citizen of the Muskogee? Creek, nation has been working on for many years. We had a chance to speak with her following the decision Sarah. I'd love to hear your reflections on this decision as well as the broader impact. This could have for all native Americans. Well. Winning a treaty case in the Supreme Court. In twenty twenty is not what anybody was expecting. This case came about in a very interesting and unexpected way as a result of some folks who were prosecuted by home, and so they they were the champions for tribal sovereignty I. It's a very odd circumstance where you have perpetrators of crime on the one hand and celebrating their victory because it means so much for Indian country. So Sarah, you've worked on tribal law and issues of sovereignty for much of your career. Why is this such a pivotal issue for you and for Native Americans? The Supreme Court does not have a great track record with tribal issues and so when cases move their way through the federal system, you know from the district to the circuit to the Supreme Court. Feel like we're always playing defense like we're really struggling to get the issues of tribal tribal governments you know to be treated seriously, and so I think this victory is not just important for native people from my tribe are even if people from Oklahoma but to see a treaty be held up as the law of the land, the constitution requires is a tremendous lift for people all over the United States who care about tribal issues tell us more about the work ahead regarding this issue. Sure. Well, one of the restrictions that still remains on our jurisdiction over crimes is that we can't prosecute. Unless it's a domestic violence case. So that means that if a non native person commits a homicide or a sexual abuse case against a child, if they do those things and it's on the reservation, we have no power over them in terms of the criminal justice system. So one of my long term agenda items is to change that to just re restore tribes like any government can prosecute anybody who comes into our community and commits an act of violence. I'm currently sitting in Kansas right now if I went to Missouri and committed a crime, you know they could prosecute me. So why shouldn't it be the same tribes Sarah gear slightly another big topic in the news, of course, is the impact of the coronavirus across the world and we know that it has also hit native Americans particularly hard. Why is that and what kind of attention would you like to see around this issue? I'm. So glad you asked that I think the primary issue that we're seeing of course, the health disparities that already exist. Right. So we've been talking about how folks have a higher rate of of sort of vulnerabilities like diabetes or lung disease, those kinds of things, and so tribal nations suffer from those disparities as well I think it's also hearkens back right to smallpox in a way because tribal nations almost disappeared as a result of widespread adoption. Starting in the seventeen hundreds and even continuing into the Spanish flu era. In the early part of the twentieth century, you know very high death rates and so there's a sense that here's a sense of urgency about viruses that may not exist in other communities because we know we're barely here. In the aftermath of smallpox, and so we do take these things very seriously. I also think that tribal communities tend to be very small and and sort of. Close, and so that also puts our nation at risk in are like in some of our trouble cultures, you just don't. You don't knock go see grandma. Culturally like you go see grandma right and so that's been a cultural barrier and some of our communities towards the necessary necessity of isolation that's been a hard cultural thing to to deal with for a lot of native people. We're also at a time where we're seeing a movement across the nation focusing on several rights reforming the justice system. It seems like we're also seeing a lot more intersection -ality on issues that overlap for multiple groups here. Do you feel that native Americans are being heard in these broader conversations in this broader push for equality? I do I think that you know the black lives matter has really open doors for for many different issues although the the centering of of black bodies and police brutality certainly at the core, the discussions and the protests that we're having a really opening up a lot of conversations and those are conversations that native people have wanted to have on a national level and wanted to be able to. Take to a larger audience and I think we owe a debt of gratitude to black lives matter which is open. So many doors to talk about difficult historical issues and of course, that's our story right typical historical issues that that have really damaged tribal communities and so that opportunity has we've really benefited I think from other forms of activism and I feel very grateful for the work that they've done.

"tulsa" Discussed on BrainStuff
"Brain stuff a production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff, Lauren Bugaboo I'm here. In Tulsa Oklahoma, a group of scientists and historians is on the verge of unearthing chunk of the city's past that has long been buried and one. Some people may prefer to keep that way. It's a potential mass grave from worst single incident of interracial violence in American history. Beginning may thirty first in nineteen twenty one thousands of armed white. Tulsen's invaded black section of the booming oil town, terrorizing its residence looting, their homes and businesses and burning to the ground, some thirty five square blocks of the city. Before the rampage was over more than ten thousand black people were left homeless, and more than six thousand were turned in camps where they'd stay in some cases for months. We spoke with Scott, Ellsworth, a native Tulsa and a professor of African American history at the University of Michigan. Ellsworth is the author of the Nineteen Eighty two book death in a Promised Land, one of the first books to take a comprehensive historical look at the Tulsa race massacre previously mystically called the Tulsa race riot of nineteen twenty one. He said to this day. We don't know how many died. Reasonable estimates range from I would say forty to his high as three hundred. When the unmarked suspected mass grave and a Tulsa cemetery is excavated in July of two thousand twenty. It may provide a few answers to exactly what happened over those two days and nineteen twenty one. It will be for many a literal. Reopening of a wound festered within the city for nearly a century. The Tulsa massacre of nineteen twenty one did not a word often used to describe such events erupt. The city simply reached. What now seems an inevitable breaking point? In early nineteen, twenty one tulsa was awash cash from the oil boom. The good fortune reached into the north section of the city, mostly populated by black Americans. That later to be known as the Black Wall Street contained one hundred ninety one businesses, including hotels feed store, a roller rink cleaners, mom and pop stores and restaurants plus offices for doctors, dentists and lawyers. The area had at least five churches to a library movie theater and a hospital. Like the rest of the city at that time, the black area also known as Greenwood had its problems alcohol, even under prohibition was readily available. Illegal drugs were easy to find to. As we're gambling and prostitution the whole city, not just greenwood struggled with crime end with lawless punishment less than a year before a white teenager, accused of murder, was taken from jail cell and lynched by a white mob. The police did little to protect him. And Racial Violence against black people was commonplace, even though thousands of black Americans had just returned from fighting in World War. One Jim Crow Laws and pervasive racist attitudes meant that equality remained nothing more than a dream for black Americans and many white Americans. Wanted to keep it that way. Ellsworth route and in two thousand one report commissioned by the State of Oklahoma on then called riot that quote during the weeks and months leading up to the riot, there were more than a few white Tulsen's who only feared. The color line was in danger of being slowly erased a believed that this was already happening. So into that explosive milieu, a black teenaged boy, working as a shoeshiner, had a brief run in with a white teenage girl operating elevator. and. The fuse was lit. The boy was taken into custody. A group of more than two thousand angry white people, some intent on lynching him, possibly prompted by an inflammatory editorial in a white run newspaper gathered on the courthouse steps some armed black war, veterans and others squared off with them there and soon shots were fired. White people from all over the city began their march on the green. What area to tamp down? What many white people saw as an uprising? Their stories of black citizens being murdered in their homes interrupted in their evening prayers. The terror went on for eighteen hours into June first. Despite their sworn duty to serve and protect neither Tulsa police, nor any other government agency assisted the black population. Instead Tulsa police officers helped set some buyers, an all white unit of the National Guard joined the invaders. Other. Public officials provided guns and AMMO two white men. The KKK got involved a semi functioning machine gun was on black. Tulsen's and some reports indicate the airplanes dropped homemade fire starters. Despite being largely outnumbered black Tulsen's fought to protect their homes and businesses and most of all. Greenwood. But in the end, scores of black people and some white people were killed in. Greenwood was left in ruins. The exact numbers of injured and dead. Even after what's to be uncovered in three suspected mass graves may never be known. It's still unclear exactly what happened between the Black Shoeshine Boy Dick Rowland and the white. Elevator Goal Sarah page to spark the massacre. Though one thing is known. She refused to bring charges. Roland was vindicated. For years. Tulsa refused to acknowledge in any meaningful way. What had happened in nineteen twenty one. Nobody has ever been charged or prosecuted for the crimes that occurred during those eighteen or so hours, even those who grew up there ellsworth included were not taught that part of the city's history. The Tulsa race massacre became a terrible and closely held secret. That began to change with Ellsworth's defeated promised land, and some earlier work, then in nineteen ninety-five, when members of the national media descended on Oklahoma City after the bombing of the federal building, they were informed of this other more terrible episode of domestic terrorism in the state's history. More news accounts and more books of the massacre followed and twenty nineteen, the HBO Comic Book Superhero Series Watchmen inspired in part by Tulsa, enlightened many to the story. But pulses failed efforts to come to grips with its deadly past has left scars. Ellsworth said city was robbed of its honesty. You have entire generations growing up in Tulsa who've never heard of this your people growing up with a false reality, a false vision of the land they were on I mean imagine if today right now that you had young people growing up in Manhattan, who had never heard of nine eleven, but there were no books to talk about nine eleven that it's as if it didn't exist. The race massacre was a gigantic myth in the history of Tulsa it was deliberately buried for a long time. With the honor thing of one of at least three suspected mass graves and Tulsa next month will mark another step in the long road to understanding and perhaps one day recovery. Ellsworth said I know that this has been a process that has been going on for a while now it's caused people to kind of reevaluate how they look at the past. How they look at their town and what's going on? I think that's been liberating process for some people. It's been a very difficult one for others.

"tulsa" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy
"Last call so I've got one for you guys. It could be read as a partially shameless self promotion, but it it is mostly the promotion of my buddy John Stewart. Who has a new movie called irresistible on Friday Murphy? Satire and the Butt of the satire are smart ass, old political consultants like you and me and welcome commentators like all three of us, but it's It's really I've seen the film it's. It's with Steve Carell and Chris Cooper. It's very very good. It's very funny. I highly recommended, and I, highly recommend the X. files will. that will be posted on Thursday my conversation with John Stewart not just about that film, but about where we are today, and he's typically brilliant and incisive, and it's really a fun conversation. Well Watch both of them. You get a free set of steak knives to this offers incredible. Go to axelrod promos slash axe to get that twenty five percent. Look. I am equally shameless this week on plugs, my buddies, merry band of patriotic, Republican elves, it Republican voters against trump. That's our vet dot org. If you're curious, we. We were watching all this last week. Is the ramp up to Tulsa and we wondered what the Hell Do. They think in Jacksonville Florida, where trump is planning to bring their bugging convention whether they like it or not now Jacksonville Duval County a critical swing county in Florida Leans Republican. Republican Dem's have not carried it since Jimmy, Carter but in the last couple of elections it's been tight Romney won divall by about three and a half points and lost the state trump won the state, but only divall which is which is very suburban in many ways by about a point and a half, so we called up six hundred where we had a good pollster call up. Six hundred registered voters devolved into last week before Tulsa and say what do you think and they had a message for the president from this lean Republican county, which was stay the hell away by a ten point margin including. Including a big chunk of Republicans, they don't want the convention there. And we even tried the old question where we said well Governor D- Sanish your own, Mayor Merkury, you know it'll bring in hotels, sales and money versus Vid, risk, and and cost in hassle and the numbers got worse. It was sixty one percent thirty nine. Don't come here. Trump even republicans, forty percent of them said they were very worried. That convention would trigger Cova outbreak, and among everybody was sixty percent almost two-thirds. The last number which is would really worry me and trump land is trump who win all. It doesn't have to win. Win It by much, but he needs to win it to carry. Florida was running eight points behind Joe Biden in that county. The Democrats haven't won since Jimmy Carter so this. The Venezuelan foolishness overall trumpism, alienating voters are key in Florida state. I've worked many times in many places. It's like the trump campaign is trying to lose the most important state and if he loses Florida I. don't care what happens to Wisconsin with all due respect Florida so many electoral votes. It would break over so bottom line is the donald is not doing well, and your other messages be wary of polls except this one. Yes No, no, of course this poll because. Trump and Jacksonville's completely accurate. Even have law of being one of the posters is a former axelrod employees in the in the red and blue associates. Combo your friend I'm going to murder his name John Del Sakado del Cicada Man Brilliant Guy Yeah, so he's never wrong, and this poll can't be bottom line is where tolls the two point. Oh there. They don't want that. That convention and it's going to be a political disaster for trump gibbs. The only plug I would make I'm reading a fascinating book. I'm slogging my way through nine hundred some pages of Ron Chernow's book on grant Oh fantastic! Yeah, it's a wonderful book. I would just say apropos your conversation with Mayor Landrieu on on this idea of of confederate statues and heritage You don't have to slog through nine hundred pages. Redo three of any of those pages and you understand that the. The hagiography around confederate generals is for history past. Take all of this stuff down these people were were trying to subvert the united. States of America, they were trying to end the union, they were fighting against the Union army, which in popular parlance today is the United States army So if you need any less in history, and heritage, review pages that book and take all that stuff down. The other thing you learn that book is that President Grant. Sent troops in to put down. The rebellion to reconstruction and it baffles me as to why now other people WanNa take grant. Stafford his down I just say I've always had a reform plan that any locality wants to keep a confederate general statue. If you keep it, you have to build an equal statue next to it of Rommel. There we go problem. Solve what else you got all right, guys. We gotta run. It's good to be with you. Thank you gives it was great. Thanks for having me. That was fun.

Since a Tulsa judge just shut down illegal request that the venue make preparations for social distancing and mask-wearing in consultation with scientists who know how diseases spread before they have a risky rally like this. Yeah, that would have been way too much inhibition of civil liberties. Can you imagine? Also in the offing is violence that many black community leaders in Tulsa have said to expect as holding the trump rally during the day June tenth celebration of the emancipation of slaves, black people in a state with one hundred year history of the worst racial violence in the country from the Tulsa massacre to white supremacists Timothy McVeigh's act of domestic terrorism in the ninety s to police brutality against black kids accused of walking away. was that in history that was two weeks ago.

That's a great question there are there are a lot of different ways that people can get involved. First and foremost if you meet somebody from Tulsa Remote. Be Nice to them. And ask them how you can help them get connected at Tulsa remote got people's attention and the ten thousand dollars helped the move here, but it's not gonNA help them. Stay here, right? It's the city of Tulsa and the people of Tulsa that are going to convince these individuals to stay, and if they don't stay there, they will hopefully be advocates and ambassadors to the community wherever they end up a because of their experience in Tulsa beans, a positive, and there's definitely an ancillary benefit to all of that. Yeah, because I imagine you living on East. Coast on the West Coast had to on occasion defend the middle of the country. All the time I should have gotten a salary. A was. I was regularly. The first person somebody had met from Oklahoma. Let Alone Tulsa. and. I had an opportunity to change perceptions and A lot of my friends were not surprised that I moved back to Tulsa. Because they knew how much care about this community and in how excited I was about the trajectory that it's going. Tulsa is going to grow, and as you were saying. You know you're passionate. There are a lot of people who are passionate about Tulsa, NYC. Tulsa is going to grow. It's it's whether or not it's going to grow in the right direction, and we need individuals who are active in the conversations who care about accessibility and affordability in in an urban core care about education care about public transportation who care about food deserts, being part of the conversation to ensure that as we grow. We've learned from the other communities that came before us to ensure that we as we grow that nobody nobody is being left behind in that growth so easy thing is just to be nice to the remote bryce.

"And I feel like remote workers have. Sometimes low more freedom to be more community engaged than people who have a nine to five office job and have to be at one place all the time you know remote people can do their work from a local coffee shop can do go. The library can have lunch meetings, so it's. It's an interesting angle. My question when I first heard about this program was. Both of us moved away came back. Would that ten thousand dollars have been? Better used, but differently us to track people who moved away to come back, so we don't. Differentiate between individuals that were from Tulsa and left and came back and people who've never been to also if individuals that have left also want to participate in the program. We're really excited about that. The ten thousand dollars is meant to remove a barrier it removes risk. The risk of there's a financial risk in moving to a new city so if you can remove that risk and provide additional incentives, the community development aspects that the co working space. My opinion is is that you're you're you're developing a program that that really attracts the right type of people. The people who were actively looking at moving into a new community hadn't considered Tulsa before said why not try it come and visit see what makes his town special and spend a year getting connected? I know that you're still you're you've just past the sort of year? One Mark, so you don't necessarily have the data to answer this question, but. What would be? Success tells her mode going forward of those people. How many of them would need to stay for two years five years ten years for you to look back on and be like okay. This worked this brought. New. Energy new ideas new people to Tulsa. That you can measure success. In one way, we've already been extremely successful. The exposure of Tulsa to the rest of the world is has been pretty huge over three billion and reach at this point people who had never heard of the city before are now thinking of a town that is moving in the right direction. That's willing to take chances that are attracting really talented people in other ways. We've already been successful. The people who've come through in the first year have already gotten incredibly connected to the community and are are helping the the existing leaders push issues forward that they're really passionate about I would say the greatest example of success would be that the individuals that come in like living in Tulsa and choose to stay longer than a year. And while I, don't expect every single person to stay. I think the vast majority are going to stay and the feedback that I've gotten from them anecdotally is that they are happy. They're excited I mean. It didn't have help this year that we had a tornado in an earthquake in the same week, but but for the most part people are extraordinarily excited about Tulsa and and have been really happy about the decision to move here. And you don't have to get into specifics, but I'm curious. What are some of the? More interesting. People who've moved here either the type of work they do where they came from or people that have interesting stories. That's always a really difficult question for me to answer because each individual that came through the program is really incredible. Yeah, I. Am Really Lucky..

"Okay so We actually took a commercial break in the midst of a massacre so the the thing is like people are being driven out of their houses and shot in some cases but more often than not there being like just flushed out but no house no building no business. No nothing was spared there the intent of these these white terrorists. There's really no other named forum was to Burn Down Greenwood yes fighters were kept at bay. Yeah they said do not come in here like the the the riders will kill you. Yeah do you is just stay away. They burned greenwood to the ground. Thirty five blocks thirty-five blocks do you know how many blocks that is. There's a lot of blocks talks. About how many blocks is thirty five blocks and then add like ten because I guarantee your conception is less than actually thirty five blocks. There's a lot of blocks of buildings burned into the ground. People killed in their front yards including Dr Andrew Jackson. The famous surgeon shot like a dog in his own front yard in the chest. There's there's a picture of him. Twelve hundred homes Churches Schools Hospital Library I think I mentioned the six hundred businesses total right. They're all torched just torch. There were six people who owned airplanes. They were that wealthy in Greenwood. There are planes were stolen by the writers and used to drop bombs steinem might nitroglycerine fire and then there was also accusations. The National Guard was helping. Coordinate this too yeah. The National Guard was called in In when they got there by all accounts they did not try to help quell the riot. They more acted as Helping to arrest black men Let's just historical fact. Oh yeah they were they were bringing in. I mean they were killing people for sure but there are also arresting black men. The women and children fled The six thousand people were arrested and the women and children fled toward the woods. Basically right like leaving behind everything they owned. Who are homeless there is there is ten two thousand people who lived in Greenwood at the time and after this one night this orgy of violence there the There were the nine thousand left homeless and hundreds dead. Yeah and apparently back to the National Guard they said that they brought in planes just just to spot fires and coordinate ground security but there are reports from people they're That said that they were actually shooting at people right on the ground. Say That that's a rumor rumor. Yeah even setting that aside. The National Guard didn't come in and quell anything. They just started arresting and detaining the victims of this massacre that was the role they played in this in this situation. That's right so The whole thing culminates with I mean in the end. It's really hard to get the the amount of people killed. I think the official report says thirty five black people. It's certainly way more than that. I've seen all the way up to three hundred. That's that's sued. I saw is almost across the board. Three hundred yeah it again might be one of the things everyone just sort of settled on a on a number But it was not thirty five people to be sure no definitely not so like as the sun comes up the day after I think June first Greenwood burned to the ground. There's people hiding in the woods. Thousands and thousands of former affluent residents of this black community homeless now homeless. No they're not homeless because the national guard is very kindly put them in detention centers at the fairgrounds other. That doesn't qualify as a home right. That's my point is that it's not a home. Yes yeah right. They're kept detained at the fairgrounds. For months I saw in some cases most of them had to endure the winner. This happened in May may yeah. These people were still a lot of them kept in detention camps at the fairgrounds through the Winter Yeah Tulsa winters and summers are both tough. They were kept in detention camps APPs because white rioters burned their town to the ground. Yeah and this was in June so right right so Yeah it was June. I guess it was the end of May so who The way that you got out of these detention centers was your white employer. Came vouched for you and said this person works from Anita back. Yeah please let him go. That's how you got Out Yeah so in the aftermath. No one was arrested. There were no prosecutions no no. I'm sorry chuck there was a grand jury that was sat. You convened they. They indicated twenty people. All of them were black. Well no more white. Yeah that's meant on the whiteside okay. there were in today's dollars between fifty and one hundred million dollars worth the damage everywhere look said the only organization that really helped and they really helped with the American Red Cross Super Brave and did did a whole lot and I also saw where You know it wasn't the entire city of Tulsa. Apparently there were some white communities that reached out in the aftermath of course to to help with the recovery efforts to take people in Yeah So we don't want to paint the entire town As doing the wrong thing. Apparently some people did step up shirt. Sure I mean just literally black and white. Yeah you know there's always shades of gray in that situation any situation yeah but Greenwood Came Back Act. They it's probably not a surprise but The insurance companies had a classified very quickly as a riot instead of just a violent violent massacre Because I mean they wouldn't have to compensate. People for their homes. Being in business is being burned to the ground right because if they were riding than they were culpable for that damage accidents parents company. Yep So also despicable the county commission said. No we're not accepting any outside donations. We'll take care of our or own and then didn't didn't follow through on that at all so there were no funds paid to the Greenwood people able. We're trying to it right. As reparations order order even help them rebuild and the county commission against proposed at one point that they would handle this by buying the land for like a a fraction of its market value and then auctioning off bitter. That was one proposed. That'll an old scam. And they also say. Will you know what just to make sure that this doesn't happen again. We're GONNA and establish a new building code for Greenwood. No building can be rebuilt. Unless it's built with fireproof bricks. And then they went to the fireproof brick producers and and said do not sell any materials to the black people of Greenwood so despite this they managed to rebuild in about five years down the the people whose houses in town was burned to the ground came back and rebuilt and from just about everything I read. Greenwood was actually better more prosperous Burson more affluent from the the second time around. Yeah then it was even the first and it was pretty affluent. The first time and chuck we said like hundreds of people were were killed right. Yes so get this funerals. Were forbidden like you weren't allowed to have a funeral. That's how how how covered up. This thing became. Yeah and one of the reasons. We'll never know how many people were killed is because the the people who were killed were taken off and dumped in the river or stashed in coal mines or buried in mass unmarked grave slow. They think they found two of those Like a month ago. Yeah There archaeologists in Tulsa and. This was from Time magazine from Jasmine. Agwu Lara they have identified two sites that they thought were that they think our mass graves raves. And they've been looking since I think two thousand one because they knew people their reports of mass graves in so archaeologists have been looking looking and in two thousand eighteen They started like legit investigation And they think that they have found one on at least one maybe two of these sites but even like which is in a cemetery ironically. Yeah I saw that but even this whole thing is like fairly new wasn't like until the late nineties. That people people even started talking about this right yeah. Nineteen ninety-seven was when the state of Oklahoma introduced a bill and this was after. Just not talking about it. No in the black community they would talk about it and stories and whispers The white community just buried it and the state of Oklahoma just didn't acknowledge it. Yeah the last. Last thing I saw was the Tulsa Tribune ran another editorial on June fourth. A few days after basically saying like lynching failing thank you know they said thank you to to the police in all the white citizens who cleaned up toll so by getting rid of Greenland it was. It's actually way worse than what I just depicted but I couldn't possibly hospital bring myself to to read it verbatim. Yeah it's just vile. Yeah what it says. It's really bad But in ninety seven this when they introduced a bill for reparations and creation of the Tulsa Race Riot Commission and that report was released in two thousand one and it did hold police in public public officials to blame But it didn't do anything basically. There were no reparations As for Dick Rowland the case was the actual case. Remember remember the case known the assault that was dismissed in September. Apparently Sarah Page didn't WANNA press forward with charges and she's lost time. He supposedly Rosalie immediately moved to Kansas City. Maybe and no one else really knows anything else about him That's just so surprising. Yeah you know. And if not for the watchman coming out this might still be fairly buried story outside of Oklahoma. Yeah right it's really brought a lot of attention to it for them for doing that. Yeah so one one of the things that I saw about Greenwood itself that prospering and flourishing for decades after this until about the sixties and One of the reasons I saw that explain why not just greenwood. But a lot of black areas thirty to decline in the sixties was a byproduct of integration was is that you could as a black person in America spend your black dollar at a white owned business and like they don't. They didn't teach us that in public school like this is a byproduct of it. But as a result these these Black owned businesses started to decline more and more and more And so wasn't as prosperous as it was before the death below the deathblow is that remembering our interstates episode where a lot of the poorer areas a lot of the The areas of color. That's where they built. I saw that they bill. I two forty four right through Greenwood. Yeah Tesla's an interesting place. It's been a few weeks there a few years ago and it's It's interesting because it's got this old oil money yeah neighborhoods. Yeah some of the most amazing estates and houses I've ever seen Got some very poor communities Lot Of meth problems. Yeah it's an interesting place. Sounds like it. Yeah well that's Tulsa for you and you know what I spend a few weeks there in this neighborhood and I didn't know anything about it I didn't maybe there is a memorial or something but I didn't notice it. I'm not saying there isn't one but I didn't see it so you know Desmond Tutu sure. Who helped will bring about the change over from apartheid to reconciliation? I love work. He can't have big fan. He came to To Tulsa Basically said you guys are sitting on Power Kate here like when was this A very long ago nineties maybe even in the two thousands just just basically saying like you can't how could you possibly he'll when you still have bodies in unmarked grain and like no one's talking about this still. I believe there is a park that that they've found a reconciliation park or something like that but it sounds like there's still a ways to go. Yeah I wouldn't it be ironic. That it was watchmen that basically forcing this issue to be discussed the pretty ironic. Yeah the power of comic books right well not even TV August of graphic novels. Yes so if you want to know more about the Tulsa massacre also known as the Tulsa race riot of nineteen twenty one. There's a lot for you to go read thankfully and you should Type that into your favorite search bar since I said that it's time for a listener mail.

Looks in some parts of America today but certainly in nineteen twenty one in Tulsa Oklahoma The idea of a black man fancying a white woman woman was even looking at a white woman yet. It was not only Untoward but like a threat worthy of lynching right. It was still that time in America. America where If you made any advances that was sort of the biggest fear for some white men was black men coming in and taking quote unquote they're women. Yes which is characterized popularized. Thanks to birth of a nation which depicts the clan? You know coming to the aid of white women who are about to be raped by maniacal black men who just couldn't couldn't help themselves. They were just so in love with white women that they just had to rape. That was just what black guys has did. That was the view of black guys time. That's just how it was so to white people you like you. You kept an eye out for that like when you saw a black man and there's a white woman over there you want to make sure that he wasn't going to you know raper. Yeah that was the mentality that people were walking around with back then. Yeah that movie movie was actually partially shot in my old neighborhood in La. You have a lot to do with this episode. Well it's just weird to think about birth of Nation You know being shot in in Los Angeles which is very like could have hip community in on the east side of Hollywood sure But Anyway on May Thirtieth nineteen twenty twenty one Dick role went into that elevator. To either flirt or use the restroom or both. Yeah and what I saw was that the it was well. So now that the third floor Landing did not land flush with the threshold and Supposedly this is why as the story goes. Dick Rowland tripped when he was getting onto the elevator. Yeah so maybe. If that bathroom was on the third floor that could make sense our top floor. I don't know how many floors the I don't remember. Actually is more than three. I don't know I don't remember. Actually I don't think they'd call a building the something building. If it only has three floors you know what I mean. You're probably rally right. It's like an eight plus floor like moniker. I think you're probably right. But at any rate He gets on the elevator as the story goes Stumbles getting on and Kinda falls forward and grabs her arm which was kind of the first thing that he could get a hold of from falling As the story goes she started beating him over the head with her purse. Because I guess it's an old Looney tunes cartoon and she didn't have a rolling pin and The elevator opened on the ground floor of people. See this sort of scuffle going on or what appears to be a scuffle She allegedly cries is out the she'd been assaulted and people on the first floor. Call the police as Dick Flees on foot right to take takes off. Yeah in you. Yeah no no one knows exactly how this all went down. No one even knows exactly who Diamond Dick Rowland was or Sarah page. Yeah for that matter always are yeah. All we found out what was that she was an orphan. She could have been a young sixteen of seeing reports of seventeen and was working to pay her way through business college. And and that's what the the Tulsa Tribune reported like the day after. Yeah and I saw that elsewhere but I also saw like literally nothing else about her. Yeah didn't find anything. Then Dick Rowland. They think that he might have possibly been named Jimmy Jones right. I saw that too and who was raised by his grandparents. Whose last my name is Roland? So he took their name and there is a guy who would have matched his birthdate Named Jimmy Jones they found buried in Tulsa but he died like like two months before these events took place so it could have possibly been him. Yeah there were a few years apart too. I think was it. Yeah Okay but it's unbelievable that so much of this is lost to history street these two people off this one of the most despicable events that has ever taken place in this country's history just vanish almost after this point. It's just you guys played your role now. Everyone else is going to step in. So Dick goes home His mom he I guess he tells his mom what happened and she obviously was pretty scared right away because she knew probably what this meant but for that night at least nothing really happened The next next day he goes out to meet up with some friends and the Tulsa police pull up and Take Him in basically on an assault charge right right. Which is I? Don't know why they didn't go pick them up at home or whatever but they. I also read somewhere that they had arrested him on the spot. But the what you're you're recounting matches what I've seen most right right. Yeah but that's that's history especially suppressed history right one person right and then somebody else reports and then yeah enough people report it and then that's fact exactly that's the story But so either way he came into police custody. We know that is the way it is. And then this. This is like a white. Sheriff named William Sullivan I think. Right William McCullough McCullough. I was very close. Yeah when you're starting to read the story you hear about this this White Moustache Sheriff and immediately think Oh boy this guy is in trouble. Will this guy had replaced the last guy that was trouble right. Yeah who would allow the The a white mob to take An arrested black man out of his custody and Lynch him. Oh it says heroes. A white person person is that not true. I think that's wrong. Okay either way he. Somebody's your lynched by an angry mob. Yeah which I thought for sure sheriff McCullough was GonNa do but apparently McCullough was intent on kind of going by the book he followed the Heck Tate School of Sheriff Ing. Note that from From a Tequila Mockingbird oh right right which was. Hey let's let the law play out. Let's give him his day in court. There will be no lynchings on my watch right. So he took He took Diamond Dick up to a room on the upper floor. The only way to get there was this one staircase so he basically strategically hit him out. All went down to this white crowd and said there's not going to be any lynching today like Chuck said the thing is we've left out a really important point here. Yeah like why was there. A white crowd to begin again with right. Yeah there is a newspaper that was called the Tulsa Tribune that Ran An article about Sarah. Page being assaulted halted This is a news article and the headline I said News Article was NAB Negro for attacking girl in elevator. VADER NOT PEOPLE MIGHT NAB Negro for attacking Gerland Elevator. Police worried white mob might net. It's nab like go do this. Yes yes that was the headline for the Oracle. The editorial took it even a step further and this is the day after this event took place. Yeah the editorial was to Lynch Negro tonight and I gotta say whoever's writing these headlines it's inflammatory of course but but they also don't make much sense. Yeah they're poor construction. They're very poor construction and I went to try and find the the microfilm of this and I think the first one is available but blurry the second one the only copy of that paper they have is a Front page with an article cutout that scanned in. And everyone's like it must. This must have been that editorial but I I literally couldn't find any you know because I was kind of curious to read just talk variety. This person was right and get you know probably would not have been accurate details. No so no they. I mean they basically Reported it in the first one and the actual article That her hit her her clothes had been torn at yeah they they really characterize it like he attacked her like a sexual assault right exactly And then the second one is just basically like an all out editorials calling for Dick rowlands lynching. Yeah this is in the paper. So the the local newspaper has inflamed the The white citizenry into basically calling them to action to go do something about this. And they all all show up at the courthouse to to demand that sheriff McCullough handover Dick Roll into them so they can go lynch him and he says yeah no back off no but so before. I think he tells them like no. I'm not I'm not doing that like you said but Before for the crowd disperses. A second group comes and it's actually a group of World War One veterans from Greenwood who had found out that that the white mob was going to lynch role in. They're like no no they're not. We're going to go see to it. That doesn't happen..

"Pay and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm Josh Clark. There's Charles Chuck took Brian over there. There's Jerry over here. We have all come together in the year. Two Thousand Twenty where silver jumpsuits has has always I know right and talk about a buried overlooked blemish in the history of the United States. Are we not going to recount. know anything about this past year. No talk about this being the first recording of the new year. Nope all right. We've had a break here. I I'm going to push forward We've been offer a couple of weeks which was Pretty Glorious do not have to just over tax my brain but it was also nice to get back in here into the stank of this room. This I don't think this room stinks. Well right now. It smells like your caramel. Vanilla Frappe just black coffee is this happens to be. Flavored bike is really. I mean it smells great. It's I think Green Mountain or something Caramel Vanilla. Coffee pod man. It is super super fragrant. Yeah it's nice and a great way it makes. It smells like an ice cream Sunday. It's pleasant that is very pleasant but it's not doing the job like I'm instill. I'm a little tired a little groggy. I had a four shot Latte. Hey earlier and so I'm Kinda Gotcha. Maybe this what I made them zippy and go downstairs to pay for coffee but yeah good on stairs spillers park okay. He watches place a four. Shot Law yes okay. That has me going. Well I give it about a half hour show crashes everybody yes seriously anyway. I'm glad to be back. I'm glad you're back to hear the whole time. This is where he spent Christmas and new years. Yes both in this room and Thanksgiving giving and I guess you mean Momo flipped over there in the corner and he comes to visit and sometimes they say please please come stop working. I say I can't they slide the food tray through the slot You know where I got this idea and I know you haven't watched it. But the watchman I came across mention of that I was he's like why is everybody talking about the watchman with the Tulsa race riot or more appropriately wise. Everyone all of a sudden talking about the Tulsa massacre yea Because the watchmen really put it on the map in a big way Utilize it quite well in the story line and have a recommendation. I've been Dacian for everyone even though it is a marketing piece There's a thing in the Atlantic called the massacre of Black Wall Street paid for by HBO. But it's it's a It tells the story in Comic Book Form In the Atlantic Cool very cool and I didn't notice it was a marketing piece until afterward but again well still good sure your song as the contents yet. It's cool and very well done so This is like a great that the watchman of brought intention to this because it wasn't until about two thousand one. Maybe the late nineties really. That people started talking about this. I know and this this event that we're GonNa talk about happened in nineteen twenty one and almost the the week after basically the week after everyone said. Don't talk about uh-huh yeah just forget it ever happened. Where is moving forward? And we're GONNA bury the past literally buried people. The evidence evidence all the stuff that was buried and people just acted like nothing happened in Tulsa Oklahoma for like eighty years. And when you hear what we're about to talk about it's astounding that community both black and white agreed to just basically pretend this never happened at least publicly civically. Yeah and It's hard to find some some information still on some of the key events indefinitely some of the key players because a lot of them died of old age Enjoyed ever having been interviewed. Yeah no follow ups like I mean. We'll get to a couple of key players. It's like the kind of all we know right. I looked them up a tune. Like wh- what do you mean. You have no idea even who this this guy was left alone. You know what became of what do you mean like you. Just no one gets traffic. Yeah that's how complete and total this cover up was it was a cover up so let's talk about it. I talk about Greenwood which I was not familiar with breath but greenwood was a influent. I guess almost suburb adjacent to Tulsa just north of Tulsa and what was odd about the fact that it was a fluent is that it was an all black community in you know the turn of the last century and yet it was one of the most affluent communities in the entire the United States. Yeah I mean now it's just part of Tulsa like a neighborhood but back then just sort of like my neighborhood would have been a suburb of Atlanta the the nineteen twenty s Even though I'm you know five miles from downtown right exactly but In nineteen twenty one. It was like you said super fluent They had A lot of I think there were ten thousand black residents. They're called the Black Wall Street like I mentioned and six hundred businesses there were fifteen African African American millionaires living in this district. Yeah fifteen black millionaires in nineteen twenty one until so Oklahoma. Yeah it wasn't wasn't the whole area was very well to do. There was like indoor plumbing the public schools there were like top. Not and in many cases Greenwood in would had a lot to boast about that like the white areas in Tulsa just over the railroad tracks literally on the other side of the tracks. Yeah Didn't have like the the this is far better off than some parts of wight Tulsa yeah including One of the top African American surgeons urgence if not the top in the country endorsed by the the doctor. Mayo himself the Mayo brothers. Yeah this guy is Dr Ac Jackson and he he was one of the people murdered in this massacre yet. Yeah I was GONNA say. There's a spoiler but I guess we've already kind of mentioned. There's a massacre coming right. Yeah so just to take a step back even further so it's pretty impressive to think of like this. Is the Jim Crow Era United States. Yes this is. We're talking about. The massacre took place in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. That's fifty years. After the end of the civil war in many ways the Jim Crow era was just as bad as the antebellum slavery era. But so the idea to us today looking back at this it's time of others the black community In Oklahoma that was one of the most affluent areas in the country. It's kind of mind boggling. But if you dig even deeper into how it was formed. Almost you develop a sense of pride in this that these these these people came together under these conditions and not only like nick survived but thrived. Yeah in create a carved out a place for themselves where like being black with celebrated and where you could be proud and you took pride in your home in in your children and your children's education in the healthcare that they were getting in the bus service in the theater that you went to The confectionary the the Soda Fountain. That's where you went to go like propose marriage like there was an incredibly developed community and the the one of the ways that it was that it was able to flourish it was able to kind of grow like this is because the first thing that that Oklahoma did when it became a state it was originally a territory for forced relocation of native Americans and their African slaves to this area When it became mistake when the white settlers came in and said no we want this? Instead we're GonNa take this territory we gave you away in turn into the first piece of legislation they passed. I was that Black people have to stay in their own area. They can't marry outside the race. He can't frequent white owned businesses. They they have to stay over here. And so the people agreements fine with us. We're GonNa Pass Covenant that says you have to be a black person to own land here or even rent a place here don't a business here. There's a covenant restricting community and we're GONNA take a tremendous amount of pride and in circulating deleting our currency. Our hard earned money that we're making by working for these white businesses. That were not allowed to patronize right. You know go make our own businesses over here and and we're going to support them with our with our community not only because we can't spend our money elsewhere but because we have a lot of pride in the businesses that we've built over here and so in in this way greenwood flourished because of an in spite of these Jim Crow era laws that bite people had to deal with in in Oklahoma at the time. Yeah yeah and this was Dave Bruce helped put together. Put this together and Some of the research he got was from the book. The Burning Colon massacre destruction the Tulsa race riot of nineteen twenty one by Tim Madigan And various points out that this was This happened in Oklahoma of course but this this kind of thing was happening. All over the country Not just in the south or the whatever you call Oklahoma. I guess it's the West Midwest. Yeah but not mid West. I no no I think he just call it. Oklahoma's interesting some people there identify with the south. But if you're from Georgia Oklahoma it's not the south. Might as well be you know Montana. China I think of Oklahoma is like native America. Yeah isn't that what it says on the license plate. Maybe it says middle other country though the little little the positive and there's a picture of the mountain dew logo but This was happening everywhere. They were in nineteen nineteen. There were two dozen race riots. It's in places like Chicago. Washington DC Saint Louis In between the end of the civil war and World War Two there were more than four thousand lynchings in the United States. Right which is You know it's important to point that out because what and we'll get into the story here but lynching is what was The aim of the white people of Oklahoma on this night right. But I have seen also one of the reasons why I went to serve much Lengths to explain greenwood impart was too because to show what was lost here but also to show There's there are a lot of people who consider this massacre to been carried out fueled in part by envy bright Because the people of grief over there's so much better off in some instances than than the white people who were carrying out this massacre. All right. Maybe you should take a break. No and then we'll come back on man we gotTa Start Twenty twenty with an argument over break Stewart. All right. Let's take a break. We'll come back and talk a little bit about The Beginnings of what would end up being Tulsa massacre You.
"tulsa" Discussed on What A Day
"This pretty extensive collection on the Tulsa race massacre and the Curators there said when he came to the library in nineteen eighty. He found that someone had gone through all the magazines and used to raise her to cut out. All the stories on the Tulsa race at the time is called the Tesla race fry it. Yeah so people were going to great it links to cover this APP which I think is just proof that they know it's a shameful event. Yeah maybe they're trying to hide it but come on. Yeah I mean absolutely and now the the truth is being brought to light on all of this. Where do we think that the story goes next? Yeah well the next logical question is. Will there be reparations for descendants and a community that might be more affluent or more power had those murders not occurred I also talked to Deneen Brown about this. She's been talking to activists in the community and they believe reparations. It can take a lot of different forms. They say reparations means atonement it means Justice it means paying back the wealth of lost. I it means also even though the perpetrators back in nineteen twenty one most of them are likely dead. It means maybe filing charges charges against them because no one was ever arrested for the killings excuse yeah and acknowledgement on its own is a big deal And I think think that would mean a lot even as gesture to say you know this happened and we recognize that. It happened Well until now the Tulsa Race Riot Commission which is comprised of descendants descendants and historians has only identified thirty five African American bodies with the revelation of these mass graves and the commitment to transparently investigate. There's finally really a real chance for justice and family. Burials and what happens in Tulsa might end up being a blueprint for other cities across America to address in atone for past just racist violence in in those places three and more about this checkout. Deneen Brown's writing at the Washington Post. She's been on this beat for a minute. And I would encourage you to watch watchmen. It does a very beautiful job of you. Know sort of exploring generational trauma associated with specifically the massacre in Tulsa.
"tulsa" Discussed on American History Tellers
"Been something else, some small incident that would have escalated into an all out. Massacre of hundreds of people. Let's talk about the residents of Greenwood, we, we've mentioned quite a few of the more prominent ones, the doctors, lawyers, and hotelier as other entrepreneurs, but that was a, it was a community of almost you know what eleven thousand people at the time. So obviously, they weren't all white collar workers. In fact, many of them were returning veterans who had seen service in World War One. Yes, I think this had probably a profound impact on, on the incident. Can you tell me why? Yes, absolutely. NFL act. You're absolutely correct. Nearly ninety percent or so of the African American community continued to work in service positions as maids in housekeepers, porters and so forth. But after. War worldwide when African American veterans returned to their homeland after fighting for their country after experiencing this respect and they coming back to their own community realizing that they weren't being treated with respect here. Even 'Soldiers, even having went and volunteered fought for their country, they weren't being treated as equals, they weren't being respected. And yet, they still felt this sense of couret, and they were determined that they were not going to stand for the same thing that they had stood for before they went to fight for their country. They had a nuisance of strength and courage and determination and they were determined to protect the community where their families lived. They were willing to risk their lives to protect the young man that they believed was innocent and willing to do, so because they were soldiers and because. They felt that as men. They had a right to defend their homes and businesses. And then we come to the day of the, the master itself in just two days, three hundred Greenwood residents were killed many many, many more fled. The city forty blocks were burned to the ground, and that left ten thousand homeless. Now, the Tulsa chamber of commerce on the, on the south side of town met shortly after the massacre, apparently, we only now know what was discussed how what was discussed an and how did we find out so recently, the Tulsa chamber held a press conference, and they presented the room with cultural center would a copy of those minutes from nineteen twenty one and they were prompted to do so, by a former employee Bill white who's in African American who up until recently was also employed at the Greenwood cultural. Center as our director of development, and when he discovered those minutes during his time at the chamber, he asked that they be released to the public and the chamber took some time to discuss on how they wanted to do that. Because they knew that this was a sensitive topic, and this is a sensitive time for us as we approached the one hundred year commemoration and the minutes. Ev- sensually say that immediately following the massacre that a committee was formed to, and they decided that there should be some reparations that they should assist with the reconstruction of the Greenwood district that initial committee was fired, and they brought in a new committee of individuals who were not at all in favor of reparations or reconstruction or assisting the black community at all. So everything that the chamber initially. Said that they were going to do for the black community through this committee, that had been founded informed. They did not. Do they did not do any of the things that they initially stated that they were going to do, so the African American community without any assistance from the chamber or the city of Tulsa was forced to many ways fend for himself? What did the chamber do if they didn't meet their their own objectives? What did they do then was to make to take the land that belonged to African-Americans where their homes and businesses were house, which is what we think, contributed to the climate between African Americans, the dissension between the two whites symbolize, we believe that as downtown Tulsa exploded, and there was this needs to expand that wise, decide. That they needed blacks to leave the Greenwood district and move farther north, and they approached them prior to the massacre, an- asked them to do just that downtown Tulsa was exploding, and they realized that they did, in fact need the area, where blacks had built their homes and businesses even though initially they didn't mind them building in that area. But as they expanded they decided in realized that they did in fact need that area. And when they approached them, they were told that blacks were not at all interested in moving.
