"Country's oldest public military college, is in upheaval today. The superintendent of the Virginia Military Institute has resigned after allegations of systemic racism throughout the campus. This shakeup comes after Virginia's governor ordered on investigation last week into the treatment of black cadets at Vieille Me. Whitney Evans of member station V. P. M enrichment has been following the story and joins us now. Hi, Whitney. Hi, Ari. Tell us about how these allegations surfaced and what's happened since then. Yeah, A recent Washington Post article actually shed light on some of the experiences of current and former black via my students and what they described his threats of lynching by other cadets. Ah, professor who sort of wistfully recalled her father's involvement with the Google ex clan. And the school's general reverence of the Confederacy. After the story came out, I spoke to a state representative delegate Jennifer Carroll, Foy about her time at the M I, and she echoed a lot of these concerns. And called for change Governor Ralph nor them. Another state leader, sent a letter to the via my board last week, calling the reports appalling and said that it was clear that the school isn't doing enough to address the issue. So nor them ordered an investigation. And I should point out that the governor himself graduated from B M I in 1981. And that led us to this morning when the board announced the school's superintendent, General Binford P. Would step down. And so what did the board say about the superintendent's departure? It's interesting. There's no mention of thie accusations or the governor's investigation in the press release. In fact, the board president expresses deep regret over peace resignation, and he calls him A great American patriot and hero he'd been he had been in charge for the past 17 years. The Via My president also calls on alumni to keep focusing on the school's mission and Supporting the institution. Sounds like this is a deep seated cultural problem that goes far beyond a single leader Has V. M. I responded to the allegations. The M I has, but they haven't granted an interview. So far, the college did send out a letter responding to the governor's call for an investigation, the president says, sort of boldly that quote systemic racism doesn't exist here. And he said the governor's probe will find that to be true. Ultimately. He did, however, pledge VM I's full cooperation in the review and assured state leaders that the school did nothing wrong. The letter says many of the incidents that black students describe old complaints that were dealt with internally. And those incidents are in no way indicative of the broader culture at the institute. So what's been the response today to the superintendent's departure? Some Republicans in Virginia are are saying that you know, governor nor them. Should afford V M I and General P. Moore in their words, respect and grace, and they, of course brought up nor them zone plea for forgiveness when his old medical school yearbook surfaced last year with some racist photos, But in the meantime, how the Virginia Military Institute plans to move forward and address its treatment of black cadets is is still unclear. But we do know the governor's report from that investigation is expected in a few months. That's Whitney Evans of member station V. P. M in Richmond, Virginia. On the departure of the superintendent of V. M I thank.

I say all Americans, and now, he says, it's his job to fill that seat on the court. I think it's very important that we have nine justices. And I think the system is going to go very quickly. The president plans to announce his nominee tomorrow. Joe Biden, and a lot of other Democrats say he should fill that seat if he wins the election in light of Republicans blocking President Obama from filling a seat in an election year, the seat President Obama would have filled incident. Scalia's went to Neil Gorsuch instead of Merrick Garland. For all the fighting. There's been over Justices Scalia and Ginsburg in life. They were very good friends. People always find it surprising that they were such good friends, Christopher Scully's the Eighth of Incident. Scalia's nine Children. There's a new collection published of his father's writing called The Essential Scalia. Their friendship went back. Really to the early eighties, when they were judges together on the D C circuit Court of Appeals, which is kind of like the second most important court in the country, and they they had a good working relationship that which really started back then they would help each other revised their drafts and their opinions. Apparently, the other judges on that court really didn't like getting advice about their writing and how to improve the clarity of what they're writing in the force of their arguments. But Justice Ginsburg liked getting and receiving that kind of advice, and so did my dad, and they formed what he called a mutual improvement society during their time on the court there. And And they had other things in common. They were they had similar backgrounds and that they were both New Yorkers grew up in New York around the same time, different boroughs but around the same time and shared a love of opera. Good wine eating good food. Both of their thousands were excellent cooks. Marty Ginsburg, in particular, is kind of a legendary cook, who would put together wonderful meals every New Year's Eve and they would celebrate New Year's Every every year is well. So you know, despite all their differences, and all the many things they disagreed about, including a number of opinions in this collection. They had a wonderful friendship were able to kind of focus on the things they had in common. Your dad in Justice Ginsburg, I don't know the statistics on how often they concurred or dissented on cases. But I imagine that they disagreed. Maybe as much as any two Recent justices have my right. Yeah, I think that that sounds right. I don't know the statistics, either. I think people would be surprised by how often they agreed with each other. But on the real hot button cultural cases, they often disagreed one of her most important, most famous opinions. Was Virginia Military Institute case from the mid nineties. And my My father wrote a dissent to that case, which is in this collection, the essentials, Scalia and it was hey actually gave her the draft of that descent a little bit earlier than one usually does just so that she would have more time to kind of Deal with it and grapple grapple with his arguments. And and, yeah, some of his most staying the sense we're in response to opinions. She didn't necessarily right but but joined, And I think that's probably true. Vice versa. Tell us very about the big bouquet of roses she got from him. My dad would get her roses for her birthday and I guess the Ah, I think the last time he did that. So the year before he died, one of the editors of the Essential Scalia Judge Jeffrey Sutton was visiting my father in chambers on on Justice Ginsburg's birthday. And he saw that my dad had two dozen roses for Justice Ginsburg and Judge Sutton started teasing Dad saying, You know, I haven't even gotten my wife two dozen roses over the course of our entire marriage. Why would you do this? And besides, When was the last time she cited with you on a really important 54 decision? You know, he's poking fun, You know, not not really being serious, but My dad gave a serious answer, which was some things are more important than votes. As I think I just kind of a great encapsulation of their of their relationship of their friendship they had they had Very different opinions of politics and of their jobs as a zoo judges and of what laws, men and with the Constitution, man. But, uh, how they voted wasn't the biggest factor in their relationship. It wasn't that those opinions didn't matter. And it wasn't that they compromised their beliefs for each other. But they didn't let those very strongly held beliefs undermine their very deep friendship collection of Supreme Court. Justice Antonin Scalia is writing sort of like a greatest hits album. It's opinions and other writing about the law and the Constitution again called the Essential Scalia. This is really just a collection of his greatest Legal writings, opinions, speeches, essays and they collected together give a really good sense of white. Exactly. He was such a significant Supreme Court justice on it. They're having in one collection really makes it tangible for anybody understand that we'll just as a legal reference work. You've got to think it's going to end up being bought by or four A lot of lawyers and judges know absolutely in law students. I hope you know that he he wrote. Clearly, he wrote, Hey, had so many memorable phrases and his opinions. His logic was so strong and convincing that people just kind of they often went to his opinions first. And so it's good for people to kind of have that as a resource to keep going to those opinions. Even you know, even after His passing is also besides the legal community. It's also like you said. It's very readable, even for non lawyers for just a general interest audience who might, but he was just simply a very, very good writer. Yeah, it's exactly right. He hey, wrote. For? I guess we would now call it out of transparency. You know, Even when he was writing Supreme court opinions, he understood that they should be understood themselves by everyday citizens, not just legal eagles and people with legal degrees. He kind of a recurring theme of his opinions. Is that people should know what the court courts are doing and people that the court should not usurp power that properly belongs to the people. And I think that kind of reverence for the Democratic order is is kind of manifest in his in the clarity of his writing a lot of times if he had a vote, a personal vote on how a case would turn out it may or may not a lot of times did a line with how he ruled, But sometimes it probably wouldn't have right. Yeah, I think that's true. And that's especially true in one example is when he sided with the majority in a flag burning case. The majority ruled that, um, it was constitutional sorry from burning the flag was constitutionally protected speech under the First Amendment so prohibiting that in the state law was unconstitutional. My father often explained that he did not like Three idea of flag burning. If he were a king, he would ban it. But clearly to him falls under the protection of the protection of the First Amendment, and a lot of conservatives to this day do not like that opinion. My father thought the Constitution was clear about that. There are many examples in this collection, the essential Scalia of instances in which he stands up for the rights of the accused defendant's rights. There's a famous case in here where search and seizure cases as well there a couple of those in here where he just thought, you know the police do not have authority, for example, to use Scans of houses, Tio identify Marilou who was growing marijuana without that was an illegal search examples like that s so if he could just pass a law That was one thing, but actually sorry, there couldn't be even be lost for that because they so clearly violated the Constitution, even though obviously he wouldn't have approved of those particular actions. Sure. Hey, was also notice the talker during oral arguments. He has asked a lot of questions and clearly sometimes, though, they weren't really questions. They were just arguments he was making to his fellow justices. Do you think he went into most cases with his mind made up based on the briefs, and the president is a bad thing, but not usually the case. I think that the justices, you know, I can't say for certain, but my hunch is that they often have to go in with a pretty good idea, but I think for the most part, they do ask questions, not just Not just to be heard or not just to make arguments, but because they want to really engage with the arguments that the lawyers are making in the forward to this collection, Justice Kegan first of all, very happy that she agreed to write this beautiful forward, But she she says that she says just that, you know, Dad would ask these questions because he loved argument and kind of loved mixing it up. It wasn't just kind of wasn't just for show though he did. I think you're right. He was very kind of an engaging speaker and There was some study years ago that that found he was. He was the funniest justice by the standards of he drew the most laughter from the courtroom during oral arguments, which obviously isn't the most important thing to do, but just shows how much he he enjoyed that process that love for debate. Did it? Was it a two way street was? Was he persuadable? Absolutely. That's something justice Kagan mentions in her forward. She doesn't say when she ever changed his mind, but says They change each other's minds at times. Well, Christopher Scalia, It was great to talk, Teo, The book is called The Essential Scalia on the Constitution, the courts and the rule of law. Chris Scalia. Really good to talk to you. Thanks so much, Thanks so much appreciate your time.
"virginia military institute" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg Quick take powered by more than 2700, journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. I'm Susanna Palmer, this is Bloomberg. This is a Bloomberg law special, the life death and legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I'm David Weston. She was only the second woman in history to serve in the highest court in the land. For 27 years of the Supreme Court continued a tireless fight to advance the rights of women, something she pursued is one of the most effective advocates in the Supreme Court and on the court of Appeals. She built a record is one of the most liberal justices supporting gay rights, abortion rights and restrictions on the death penalty. Now, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died at the age of 87. Ginsberg passed away from complications from pancreatic cancer surrounded by her family at her home in Washington. Over the next hour, we examine the life and legacy. Of the justice affectionately known as notorious RBG and bring you the view of her career, in her own words, with excerpts from an interview conducted less than a year ago, But first we welcome Bloomberg News Supreme Court reporter Greg Store and Bloomberg Law Supreme Court reporter Kimberly Strawbridge Robinson for their reactions to the loss. Of a legal giant. So let me start with you. If I may. Greg, what was her effect on the bench? How did she change the Supreme Court over her 27 years. Well, it's it's hard to overstate the impact that she had, in part because she became such an icon to the world. She was incredibly well known. On and deeply admired by but by people on all sides of the political spectrum, but especially among liberal people and young women, she represented a woman who It was incredibly bright, incredibly hard worker somehow manage to be very good friends with one of the most conservative justices Antonin Scalia, and really left a legacy, uh, particularly with regard to women's rights on women's place place in the law. Get Kimberly. We think of her, obviously, as ah, really important Supreme Court justice. But the fact is, if she had never been in the Supreme Court, she would have had a profound effect on the law, particularly with respect a woman's rights as an advocate for the CP, and also at Columbia, and then, as on the Court of Appeals. She had a very distinguished career, very effective career long before she came to the Supreme Court. That's right, And she's one of those huge justices to actually was very noteworthy before she came to the bench. She co founded the values one of his rights project, and in that role, she brought several cases that really led the way on how we now think of women's rights and gender equality, not only on behalf of women, but she also brought several cases on behalf of men that really changed the landscape. For the way that we think about gender and gender in the law, Greg as we say she was the second woman coming to the Supreme Court, but but she really had an influence on the way women were regarded basically in the law, and particularly on the Supreme Court. She did a Justice Sandra Day O'Connor was the first one for a short while. Justice Ginsburg was the only woman before when you said my urine, Elena Kagan joined her. She, uh, you know, did it both through her opinions. And and probably the most memorable of her opinions in the majority was the one that said that the Virginia Military Institute Had to admit women. But you know, even more. So it was what she stood for The fact that she, you know, made very clear that she wanted more women on the court that she was such a tireless worker. And that she became really a heroine to so many people in in this country can't really it's interesting. President Clinton once said about her that she was akin to Thurgood Marshall. Oh, and the extent to which she changed the law. By the way, she said she did not like that analogy because Thurgood Marshall risked his life on the course in the cause of civil rights, and she did not do that. At the same time, she does Tower as a figure. That goes beyond even the Supreme Court. United States. Well, that's true, but it's it's interesting that we do think of her as such a towering figure given that she is such a small person and stature she really does. Really outshine her own stature in history and write that many have compared her to go to Marshall based on the work that she had done of the value on behalf of women's rights. Andi. So whether or not she enjoyed that particular comparison. I think it's one will definitely continue to hear as her legacy continues to grow. She also just to be a little more personal about this, Greg she was part of a partnership with Marty Ginsburg. Very, very distinguished, very respected tax ular. And and as diminutive as she was, and frankly, as quiet and shy, spent a fair amount of time with her. She was not really out. Spoken. Marty was the opposite of that. Yeah, he sure Wass. You know, he was a very engaging person. He was the chef of the family. She admitted she was a terrible cook, and he did most of the cooking. But as you said they were a true partnership in one of the stories That was most told about her is is when she was in law school. He contracted cancer and while he was also in law school, and she helped take care of him. She went T stayed on as a law student at her own studies. She went to his classes took notes for him, and she took care of their young daughter, all at the same time on when it came time for her to be in the spotlight on the federal appeals court and then the Supreme Court. He was her biggest supporter and couldn't have been more proud of her. And that was part of one of of what people loved about respect her. Ginsburg was that she showed both that a woman could have an incredibly successful career and have a very loving marriage. Okay, many thanks to Bloomberg News, Supreme Court reporter, Greg Store and Bloomberg Law Supreme Court reporter Kimberly Strawbridge Robinson. We'll hear more from them later in the program, but first we'll hear from the justice herself. The challenges and the accomplishments. Ruth Bader.

Jennifer Carroll Foy: Lets run and win!
"Jennifer welcome to the PODCAST. How are you I? AM good good Thank you for having me. Here of course I'm so excited for everyone to hear from my plus one from the she. The people list and learn why I just had to choose you. First question is winded your love of politics begin. Believe my level of politics began when I saw that. Being in a position of power away to make real change, and so I was just you know, gripe all the time about being in traffic traveling, you know two hours to go twenty miles and Why are schools segregated employees funded? And you know trying to help my foster children, and there's so many a deficits in the system. And why weren't anyone speaking about? These issues got frustrated with those things that I wanted to be a part of the solution to solve a lot of these problems and I figured out with early that politics. Politics is a way to do it. That's the way that you are invited to the table and Your brother's decisions are being made, but we're definitely GONNA dive into all the amazing work that you have done, but you are a laser in so many ways. You became one of the first black woman to graduate from the historically. All Mel Virginia Military Institute, which just Kudos to you I did Air Force Junior ROTC in high school. That was enough for me, but what made you apply? And what were you thinking when you got accepted? So I applied to Virginia. Military Institute because I was watching the Virginia Military Institute. Supreme Court decision on TV. Them is one of the top military colleges in this country, and they spent millions of dollars to keep women out of doors. And when I was in that high school classroom I remember hearing men in the class. They think like women don't belong where fear your. We can't run as fast as hard and we're not as smart. And I remember hearing justice. GINSBURG say basically that women can do all things if given the opportunity and I agree. And Tokyo's men that I'm just smart and just as capable and powerful as any man in that class, and I mentioned. So is that that time that my best friend? He was going to go to west point, and he walked up to me, and he said I'm going to go with you when you go to them. I because I want to be there to watch you when you fail. Even dough right? We were friends. Don't forget them still female and therefore interior. So I looked at him, and said challenge accepted. And, so he went to BMI, so did I and other meal in our class. And when they got their head shaped ball, so did I and they gave me a management for 'cause. The might have changed any of his standards for women. And actor years of marching wedding and bleeding beside over a thousand male cadet. Out of the other two men who with me to be a month, I'm the only one who of us walk across that. Virginia military stage, and so that's what I would lie and that's why I'm happy that I graduated succeeded. Oh my goodness, so we know that was not the first time he had to deal with men. Telling you that you couldn't do something. It wasn't your turn. You also experienced this. When you ran for office when he ran for Virginia. Delegate, you were not the quote. Unquote preferred candidates by Iran. Anyway you did our emerge boot camp. You are my emerge sister and you also ran your campaign while pregnant with twins. So tell everyone just the whole story about when made you WANNA run running for office while pregnant and just the entire experience of knowing that you were the best candidate to represent your district. Yeah, absolutely, so I decided to run in two thousand seventeen, because you know I was just tired of the partisan politics and the divisive rhetoric that was happening, and I always thought. How could we lack someone so bigoted and racist and xenophobic and homophobic to the leader of the free world and I knew then that we needed a response to talk. We needed a response design of politics that were happening in Richmond where they were trying to pass. A transactional ultra sank town bill and they put politically. Politically motivated and medically unnecessary restrictions on women's reproductive health care, or they weren't fully funding education in a way that makes sense, and so I decided to do something about it, and being one of the first public defenders ever like Virginia. General, assembly when I was practicing as a public defender I just saw so many of the inequities in our system, and how we have a two tier criminal justice here, Virginia one for the wealthy, and by themselves out of prison in one for everyone else. And, so I knew I could continue to be you know a community organizer in foster mom, and do all these things to help the community and fight against that laws, or I could become a delegate impact. Good one. So those are the things that really put the fire and leave me in order to for office while pregnant was not just one with two baby. And you know run against what was pretty much. Thought is as the establishment candidate who had all the endorsements? He outraced me four to one, and it didn't matter because I knew that I was the better candidate, and even though I could. I would be outraged. I knew that I would never outworked.

Another Virginian politician caught up in black face scandal. What the Republican majority leader of Virginia state Senate was the managing editor of college yearbook, featuring photos of people in black face alongside other racists. Snapshots and slurs according to a new report. The revelation comes as the state's democrat leadership is in crisis with governor Ralph north of men and attorney general Mark herring. Both facing calls to resign today amid it to wearing black face while they were college students in the eighth nineteen eighty s now state Senator Tommy Norman, he oversaw the Virginia Military institute, the VM. I there there you book was called the bomb, and this was in one thousand nine hundred eight the same year, the college I allow black students to enroll. Your book include several photos of people in black face, including one at a costume party. And another of two men in the racist makeup while holding football as well as the N word. And a student from Thailand who was referred as a derogatory term. A photo of one man is captured he has known. He was known as the oil a derogatory term for Jewish folks. Norman refused to talk about the yearbook when queried by reporters today saying he would only discuss the state budget. According to the pilot whale. Taking a page from Nancy Pelosi what? I'm only here to talk about the budget. Now on Saturday. A he did demand the demand that north of resigned after it was revealed that the governor is page, and you know, the whole mess there. Yeah. He did. These people have resigned. I wrote back to my lefty friend. So he was the editor of a yearbook in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight that had people who were in black face. But did he appear in the yearbook in black face or clan entire? No, oh, did he say I like the way you split hairs? Oh, thank team sixty eight. And nineteen eighties. Well, that's two decades apart. I'm not making excuses. What you know what the nineteen sixties is win the civil rights era was at its apex. It started in the late. Fifties. And in nineteen sixty eight. My goodness wasn't that the year that Martin Luther King junior was assassinated. I mean that is the height of racism and still new can accuses guy of being an editor. And at the Virginia Military institute in a very turbulent and racist nineteen sixties that's a far cry from the eighties. But we are talking about the culture. You kind of stretching the kind of thin right there. We're not complaining about people who were aware in the Klan robes in the nineteen forties and nineteen fifties. You can't do that. Because you have already given some prominent Democrats who were clan members up pass. I think it will be best. If. Those folks are going to. Going to understand what I'm about to say here if I were a democrat. I was shut up. If I were a democrat. I would not resign. I were democrat. I will let black folks screaming Yale like, Al Sharpton, all they want to I wouldn't budge because if you do. Got to be a bloodletting a democrat party. Now as a Republican I got. Yeah. I am not going to go on Fisher record. They should resign. They should resign. Because I don't believe that. But I will say double standards, you're racist. Because I will eat but right back on them. That's another reason why I want them to stay. So the every time they accuse President Trump of being a racist. I'm gonna go. What about north them? Oh, really seriously. We just have to we have to we have to be willing to play like that. But James is not fair James. You know, what we should have one standard? Yeah. We should. But we don't. The left has a double standard that is their standard. And they want to force us. This is like the solace key trick they will force you to live by your values. But then they don't have to. Very very frustrating. It has been frustrating for years. But you know, what you know what? We don't have to be frustrated anymore because we have a president has shown us how this is done. And we have Republicans are starting to learn. They don't have to answer questions. They don't have to give their opinion. They can shut up. Biggest you know, what I'm not here to talk about that. I'm here to talk about the budget Dickson. You know, what I'm not too familiar with that right now. Look look out quickly. Cory Booker changed here. Cory booker. Cory Booker was one of the architects that went after Brent Cavanaugh how we deal with survivors who come forward right now is unacceptable and the way we deal with this. Unfortunately allows for the continued darkness this culture, fist and your brilliance shining light under this speaking your truth is nothing short of heroic. Yeah. This is the Cory Booker Senator Cory Booker talking to Dr blassie Ford wonderful. You're you're coming forward assigning elected this if oh. Now. Dr Vanessa see Tyson will she's a sister. She's black. She's a doctor to just like Dr Ford. But when Cory Booker was asked about her charges when he was asked about her plight when you when he was asked about her sexual assault. Here's what he had to say. I think we should be focusing on what's.
