"L.. A of course free. Queston his on. I'm I'm dating this girl for the pass. four months going on for five months. we have a very strong communication with each other where we are opening with each other and. It would be any tap away about each other anything. We express it, so she's saying that This is someone that I see myself. Getting. I've been I've been tired with everything she she has met the requirement that I require as you know when it comes to like marriage or to your mother for my China and stuff like that. She's. I wouldn't say I love her, but getting there see meets the requirements, but you don't have yet. I'm not saying that I not for but. Very, strong. I know it will get there, but I'm making a and I love that movie. Okay now just when you said you could see yourself marrying someone and you can see them being the mother to your child, I would figure. That means that you love her. I could say I know I see my marriage. What if things change? If, you understand what I mean. So anyway, she she said before before we. Move into like if we have a plan on which we all kind of moving to. She said we have to get married before we could move in together, so I was thinking that. That's like a recipe for disaster. Not Moving in together until you get married, she wants to get married before we move into. Okay, what do you think about that? I mean if that's what her requirements are. And what she saying because you guys can still date in each other's houses. That doesn't mean that you have to move in, so you still have separate residences. I'm sure you spend a lot of time together now, but if he's not comfortable living with somebody unless you guys are married and that's her prerogative. That's yes I said the on that's real. And all that, but it's like if you would go some truly him to dislike when you live with someone, right? That's like the best way of. Getting to know them, 'cause, I could see. You could be good friends with you I could be a good family member, which you could have a good relationship that you, but when we lived together, it could be so many different things that I know about you. which probably would say that? I wouldn't tolerate if you understand what I mean so living to get into the person better. I mean there's plenty of people who don't live together before they get married. Though for some people they WANNA. Wait until marriage for that. Because just like you find it hard to be in love or love someone. She might find it hard to commit to somebody on that level until they're committed on the level that she wants, and if that's her a standard of what she wants to do then either you're with a you're not, but i. just you know you can't make somebody do something that is against their own morals or what she wants to do. I mean. Do you spend the night at each other's houses off? Yeah, we yeah, we spend an hour in the you know. We go through each other Johnson. Two days and stuff like that, but the thing is I I'm kinda compromising. Request I said okay. Let's engage gun, or you think about it I said. Okay. So you're saying that you so basically you just went out of live together and you will get engaged in order to make that happen. Okay, well, that's that's a compromise. You can ask her that you can say okay. Well once we get engaged, I would want us to live together and see if she's open to that I, mean I don't think there's anything wrong with being excited about actually getting married, and then after you get married your move in together as part of that because some people feel like I don't want to act like we're married and live together until we really are, and you know some people don't feel that way, so it just seems like you guys have a difference in opinion i. don't think either one is right or wrong. But I mean he is like. I'm trying to protect her anytime time, but it's not like I'm planning on doing her dirty or anything of that sort, but if I'm trying to hope in her mind to like certain stuff especially when you're dealing with persons who are not be the hoping to light society their so closing to like their comedy dynamics. Are, they, their contract background, so he's like most of the decision they made based on like. Oh, I was raised, but at the same time you have to look outside you have to. See Society for what it is. Even though that's what your family dynamic says are probably that's what your background says. If you go there, you're to meet. Someone will probably do not have the same. I'm not saying that you should go everything. You're dying your family. Concert or your moral background says, but I'm just saying like the more coping tool reality and what it is. Let's say as soon as you decide that you love her, then you can have that real conversation because you don't WanNa. Be Living with somebody until you can tell them that you love them meaning. I Love her? You said that you're getting there. You're not there yet. Why don't you wait till you get there? Okay, then but STUGZ. Okay that's fine. I mean I just? I'm just saying if feels like you know you said you guys have only been dating for four or five months. You can see this happening. It doesn't even seem like you're at the point where you can be comfortable. Saying I love her I want to. Spend the rest of my life her. You're not even there yet, so maybe she. Maybe, but you're not. You just told me I said. Do you love her? I said. If, it's getting there. I I'm okay. Her. If I say I love love love. I for me, can I entirely love someone I? Know you entirely I? Don't know her saying. Let me tell you send. Our didn't move in with somebody if they didn't love me. So take your time. I went and put the pressure on this right now. There's nothing wrong with that and I'm not saying that you're wrong for a not feeling like you love Love, love her, and that it's difficult for you. But why don't you work on getting to that point before you jump to the next point, but I mean when I when you're moving about Dementia when you move from one, it's it's. It's kind of like intimately getting to know them, I'd rather get to know your first before we before we move in together and I. Don't think there's anything wrong with her position on that I. Want To know that I love you. I moving in together is big deal for some people leg. I could see getting engaged and then moving in together I kind of feel the same way I don't WanNa live with somebody if we're not getting married so. So if that's how she feels, that's how you feel differently, so you should have that conversation and when you're ready to propose then. Maybe that's been moving together now. If things go terribly wrong, you could decide not to get married, but you know I just think that she probably wants that. Love Love, love I, but I do wish you the best of luck and have that conversation with her. I would say getting gauged first and then start thinking about moving in together. Okay, thank you so much. I'm sorry it's not what you wanted to hear. Ask He eight hundred, five, eight, five, one, zero, five one. We got away Ye.

For many different reasons, so you know that is something that should be a learning experience for everyone i. I remember we had this whole debate up here about well. He's just being a good father, but I think being a good parent is also you know as far as for me being someone's daughter, knowing that your daughter deserves privacy, respect, and also you should believe her if she's telling you something. If you know, she's a good girl in days, has always seemed like a girl, and if you trust her, you could be.

You know so. It was something to. Yeah, but she did look I. Mean if you watch episode is really sad. She's like crying. Breaking down, you know talking to other family members, and she can't even really speak to her own father, and he's still being a little bit stubborn about it because he is TV. They'll get to that in the next episode. Not Real life, they gotta stretch it out for the story line. That's the other bad thing about a situation like this. Your real life becomes people's entertainment so now it's a story line that play though. But. Really felt that I. Mean I'm sure she really felt that way.

Thank you miss e that Chaumet. Who you give that donkey to there are two pastors in Arizona. The other path is of a mega church called Dream City Church.

Today for Wednesday June, twenty third goes to the pastors of an Arizona. Mega Church called Dream City Church okay dream. City Church senior pastor Luke Barnett and chief. Officer Brendan's Astro are their names and dream. City is the perfect name for that congregation, because life is all about the buying and selling dreams, you either a hustler are customer in Dream Business and churches OV best dream business. Okay in this church was holding an event featuring one of the biggest dream sellers in America today Donald J trump now I won't be the first time. A dream is sold in a church. Okay, the whole concept of religion is dream selling, and that's why these passes. Passes were able to get this dream off on this lie off, okay now, circulating online this week was a promo video that claims the Churches Air filtration system can kill ninety nine point nine percent of code nineteen within ten minutes now I watch bishop td Jakes, every Sunday and Potter House in Dallas be fairly empty I also watch my man most corner South Carolina. Zone Stephen Fertig in Evola Elevation Church in Charlotte North. Carolina be fairly empty. Clearly in Arizona they are father along in phases. So they are trying to get people back in those piece. Okay, I guess prayer and faith in White Jesus isn't enough because in order to get folks comfortable with coming Dream City. They have to sell a dream to city that they have installed air filtration systems that killed ninety nine point nine percent of covert within ten minutes. Let's go to Dream City Churches facebook page here Promo police here. City church were I certain nation to we. We've installed clean air. Esp We have a local Arizona company was technology developed by members of our church, and we've installed these units, and it kills ninety nine point nine percent of Kobe within ten minutes independent testing is the I as it. is in. It's like Shin of of the air, and it takes particular out and Cova cannot live in that environment so when you coming. Our twenty I'm ninety nine percent Kobe is gone. If it was there in the first place, so you can. When you come here, you'll be safe and protected now. Look I'm not here to tell you you. What the belief! If religion helps you get through your day if it gives you a better life great, even though I am more of a spiritual person than a religious person I don't knock religion, but you have to acknowledge the fact that if you can get people to believe that a white man turn water. Water into wine with no grapes. Then you can make them believe anything all right that whole story away. Jesus turning water into wine. There was no mention of grapes You need lots and lots of grapes. There was no mention a sugar, no wine yeast, and was the water filtered because you need filtered water to make homemade wine, but nevertheless I am not here to be a dream kill if that's your bag, let me mind my business, but I'm just saying. Tell You my F- ill to kills corona, and you would believe me because well I, told you why Jesus Fed five thousand people would five loaves of bread and two fish, and you believe that I know no miracles. Okay, but five thousand people got spend with five loaves of bread and two fishes. Come on now. Caterers Chefs, food and beverage workers top to me, five thousand people, eight, good or five loaves of bread and fishes I. Am not knocking you for what you for what you believe I just noted, if you call it a catering service and told them you had a party of five, thousand and Jesus told you know Jesus Hay Soos told you that he could feed them with five loaves of bread and two fishes. You would hang up on. Hey, seuss, that's all I'm saying, but if you believe that, then you would believe airfield to kill corona virus I mean it's literally so many miracles performed in the Bible. Eighty and Old Testament eighty three in the new testament, probably more than the Lebron James version. So why would I believe my pastor when he says the Church has an air filter that kills corona virus, and if the Church has that, why not having them installed in every member of the congregations house? Okay, that's why Jesus would have done. He.

Calhoun statue was coming down about the post video of you coming down this morning just to piss off the white supremacist. Follow me. Real quick! Did you see the out in Ohio? neighbors called the police on these a five. Black boys were playing in the street in police pulled up and it was like I. Don't know why they call the police. We played in the street. Kids fact, let's play a game and they play football with the kids. Jesse W that was dope and the reason I thought that was over I remember being a kid and playing basketball in the park, and sometimes you know the the local police officers will pull up an issue with us, and they play basketball with us, and that's what you need. You could tell those cops from community understand what's going on and instead of. Telling tilling the boys that you'll get out the street or just any of it, they was like no. Let's play. Let's begin football and they played with the kids, and that's what we need more of. poza making no street thought that was at that was doctor. Yeah I keep saying when they talk about community policing initiatives I think that they should have people from the community encouraged people from the community to go into law, enforcement and pay them a extra financial incentive for coming back to police in their own neighborhoods. Yeah, I think that's that'd be a a dope idea, but what? What you hugger. Really into that today. I know I, I really let me ask. I don't WanNa, I don't WanNa tell. You and you grabbed new. Grab the would right and pulling would or whatever you do. What do you think about? When I moved back to New Jersey right I was I moved into this apartment complex in in teaneck.

Sounds coming from the room. Okay! And I was like really, and she said Yeah, now to do with my man Sean people don't show him times. Mistake mistake me Sean so basically.

Cause, we know you work to hold. Would you got? This guy's crazy. Right, now we've been talking for the past three minutes. Until, we'll be talking about apologies Jimmy. Kimmel anti went through. Those two guys have in common their apologizing all right. We'll get into that next. Keep locked. Is The breakfast club Good Morning PJ envy, Angela yee shallow in Guy, we all the breakfast club. Let's get to the rumors. Let's Talk Jimmy Kimmel. Reports with Angela. I close. Jimmy Kimmel. Has You know he's taken a vacation? And he did come back from his vacation to apologize for wearing black face in man show sketches that resurfaced now. If you guys remember, this is the Carl Malone impersonation that he did. And night all look sky and say what the hell on up there. On other planet. Like et. Kololo read al-tv about why people get deduct by Alien, sticking all hail. and. That's a damn thing well. He did do that in black face, and now he has put out a statement. He said I have long been reluctant to address this as I knew doing so would be celebrated as a victory by those who acquaint apologies with weakness and cheer for leaders who use prejudice to divide us. That delay was a mistake. There is nothing more important to me than your respect and I apologize to those who were genuinely hurt or offended by the makeup I wore the words that I spoke. Spoke he then went on to explain about his impression of Karl Malone how it started when he was a personality on the radio in the late nineties, and then he moved into television with with the man show, he said we hired makeup artists to make me look as much like Karl Malone as possible. I never considered that. This might be seen as anything. Other than an imitation of a fellow human being when that had no more to do with Carl, skin color than it did his bulging muscles and bald head. So he did also acknowledge, he didn't personate Snoop Dogg and Oprah and he said they were similarly performed without malice, he said looking back. Many of those sketches are embarrassing, and it is frustrating that these thoughtless moments have become a weapon used by some to diminish my criticisms of social and other injustices, so he did put out a statement. If you WANNA. Read that. He personally discussed by saying the N. Word, too, but I mean. You can do is apologize. I mean I. Still I still think we need to have a larger conversation about cultural context, and how things used to be in regards to the rich people used to take entertain because that line about what was acceptable, and not acceptable was nonexistent. Everybody went too far back. Which is true, which is true? Everybody went too far, but you know as long as he. He understands that he apologized and you know he's evolved as a person hopefully. Talking about something that we're talking about. Something that has literally changed in the last few years, and to to not acknowledge that Schiff responsible of all of us, and I'm so he's grown. Since then what? What else can you do, but apologizing learn from murder right and there's nothing wrong with saying look that was wrong, and it is what it is all right. Lena weight has called out the Hollywood reporter and variety. Variety for ignoring black shows, she was on the late late show with James, corden and She was specifically calling them out. She said people that are hopefuls. The black shows are like on the long shot list or a major threat as far as TV emmy nominee. She said it's like.

"Watching them? Do all of these symbolic things like cancel cops and cancel live? PD take police officers out of video games and I'm like look I'm all for defunding the police I'm not for abolishing the pony. I'm not for abolishing the police either but I do know what I'm what I wore. Balloting is I'm four Baligian police brutality. I'm for abolishing profile I'm for abolishing the hyper militarization of police, and why we have police that are basically just stormtroopers and are using the same equipment that I use not Ghanistan and why we have why we have police for using the same gear that I was using at a time of war. And that's not the job of the CO writes. The job of the military was actually to go out and actively use offensive measures to fight in our nation's wars. The Java Police to protect and to serve. It's a different mission. So why were using the same mechanics and the machinery for different mission does not make sense to you. Know and I. Think you know to your point I think you're absolutely right chaumet where it. Every budget is a moral document. If any of you right now, you show me how how you spend your money every month. I could probably make. They're making a pretty educated. Guess as to what you find the imports. In in New York City. You know four for every dollar that we spend on NYPD in New York City Youth. Development kits eleven cents for every dollar that the NYPD gets. Health and mental hygiene. It's thirty one cents in Baltimore City Right now for our health department. They get about forty one about a forty one billion dollar budget in Baltimore. City Police Department of Baltimore City. It's five hundred and nine hundred, so you can't talk to me about where parts station lie and the fact that actually was happening is we're having the police department? Take on a collection of other things that they should not be responsible for, and then we end up putting a lot more money into the back end, because we're not putting money into the front end on things in this country right now. Child poverty costed his country over a trillion dollars a year, but But instead we can about budgetary allocations, and we just continue giving more assets and capital to Connecticut military and police funches. It doesn't make sense. It is short-sighted and it's something we're talking about policing reform. We have to deal with things that struck. She was like the elimination of knock warns the Elimination of choke holds. All those things are real all the things that are important, but it is to your question I want and it's also about how we talk about budget. And how budgeting reflecting prioritization sedation on what we're hoping for community I mean question. But how do we see that because you know my whole thing with the police department? were all this money is going. We never see the money's. That's right. NBA and and and you know crazy about it is your money. This bright, but my key data. Shadow operates in. Tax. Money absolutely so so the idea of being able to add transparency and when I transfer to your point, it's not just saying okay. We're going to give five hundred nine million dollars to the Baltimore City Police Department it out of line. Item. Yes exactly where that money I to see the toilet paper. That's you're buying for the presets. I WanNa see all that I want to see where the money is going. You can't just say you spend any. Yes and public dollars, and there is no reason. Moment, accountability for public dollars and when. Dad I feel like the third part of that is also accountability right when these police officers commit crimes against civilians, they should be held accountable for them, and they haven't been to your point in Baltimore. What the numerous cases that you can bring up! There is no firing. There's no there's no accountability. There's no jail time. There's no charges. So do you feel like that's changing now? As things are being brought to light, do you feel at least if finally there'll be some legislation? I I'm I'm I'm very hopeful because we are watching things that are being proposed not just on a local level, but also the federal level. We're looking at things like the pushback qualified immunity and qualified. Immunity is the idea that there's a certain level of immunity that that law enforcement had that most other individuals don't write their level of the introduction of two billion review. Board and things that are going to be really important. Fact is right now. The Way to practice work is it who investigate police don it, cleese interaction and potential police. The police. And so, how can you have? People were policing people who are also part of unit. And so how do we do things like introducing you're? Not Going to say. About you? Also have this new book. Let's discuss their eight different people that you actually have in this book in the eight different points of view that you're bringing into play. Thank you and yet I mean I'm. You know one of the things. I noticed when I was going through. This is really a process. That I was going to myself. Where right after everything happened with Freddie Gray I? Remember attending school and it was the first a funeral. I've ever attended in my life where I didn't know the personal. And it was going to be things because his funeral was almost like it was, it was it was fame in Baltimore. Everybody was out and I remember looking around the chapel, and just thinking about so are any of us me included are any less prepared to do what it actually takes to truly bring justice to these young men. And when we say justice, it's not even just the accountability for for what happened in his debt the back there's a twenty five zero young name. It's I contact with police and looted like a week later had to being in a coma call week, but it's also the fact here was a young man who was born underweight, premature addicted to heroin. His mother battled addiction for much of her life. She never made it to high school. She lived in poverty her entire life. When he finally was able to gain enough weight, his twin Sister Bridge Rica. they left the hospital and they moved into a housing project over in West Baltimore in your carry street. That housing that House that they lived in that in four hundred other homes were named in a in a civil lawsuit in two thousand nine because of the endemic levels of lead. Inside of that house, so the CDC indicate that if you have five microbes of lead in every deciliter of blood, you'll be cognitively impaired. The rest your life. Freddie Gray had thirty six. Young man who was born underweight. Addicted to heroin. Lead point and by that time in his life. He's two years old. What Shocked Brady? What's shot? Did Freddie happen? This argument about? People just need to work harder. How hard! report, and but but honestly I found myself sitting there with a sense of my own personal complicity, because I left Freddie Gray's funeral, and then I had to fly to Boston. Go give a speech on poverty, and and I knew that part of it would be the work I was doing, but then portable with because they were going to use my story as like. It's a celebration. It's the look at what he did. And when you look at life like Freddie, it's just not true, and it's a lie that we. To Tell, ourselves And, so what? I wanted to do with this story was first. Ground us in the reality of what we're talking about. We're talking about. The history of racism were talking about the history of tolerable poverty. The fact that we we accept levels of poverty in our society where we are. We making devil deal, but we're asking ourselves just. How much pain are we willing to accept and other people? As long as it doesn't impact US everybody got grab his new book five days to fiery reckoning of an American city by my man West more west. Don't be a stranger.

People said that it was smooth, though some people said it only took them ten to fifteen minutes are the people ended up waiting over an hour, so a lot of people were paying attention to what happened there. In the meantime Donald Trump was in Arizona, and he actually talked about how he feels like the Democrats could be rigging the election for Democrats are also trying to rig the election by sending out tens of millions of mail-in ballots, using the China virus as the excuse for allowing people not to go to the polls. I! Don't care what you think Donald Trump. I don't care what you poll. Say polls that same thing in two thousand sixteen and trump still one and his things like that. That's the reason why voter suppression and what do you think is GonNa happen in November, voter suppression possible in affairs from other countries voted depression because people about the candidates and low voter turnout always favors Republicans. I'm just trying to figure out why it wasn't a big deal. Yesterday. They cut the poll insights and Kentucky. They lot patients lousy trying to. He's distracting you by telling you. Democrats are going to rig the election and they are blatantly doing it. Right under your nose, why wasn't this all over the news yesterday? I saw him on social media in any way. Now another thing that Donald Trump talked about during his speech in Phoenix was. Has these monuments coming down? You know he has a problem with targeting statues and monuments that have bonded past presidents and the confederacy across the country. Here's what he had to say the radical left. Our history. They hate our values, and they hate everything. We Prize as America's and we're right. Yes, we knew our country didn't grow great with them. It grew. Great is and your thought process and you're? The left-wing mom. To. Demolish Garrett's so they can replace it with a new repressive regime that they alone control. I don't consider my left left any direction but I do hate racism, and yes I hate slavery, and yes, I hate segregation and I hate you history of racism and bigotry, and your your history of hate, and let's be clear. Black people built this country. Okay, two hundred and sixty years of free labor all right, let's be let's be clear about that. As a matter of fact, white people, you should hate the history also because right now. Yeah, right now you should be the ones that should be ashamed of what happened in the past and hate that history as well. It shouldn't even be just US saying. We hate that history. Yeah, we do hate it. I'm surprised. He says I'm surprised. He just says what he wants to say, and he he. I. Wonder, we. Believed him. believes him when you call them racist. People in my comments. They definitely believe everything a lot of people his side. And a lot of black people on his like yeah, yeah, believe anything I raised gracious. Now police officer involved in the in the fatal shooting up. Brianna Taylor and Louisville Kentucky has been fired. This is more than three months after Brianna. Taylor was killed detective Brett Hankinson was informed in a letter that was signed by the police chief that his employment with the department is terminated, and that is effective immediately. That letter was dated on June twenty third, and they did post the letter on twitter. That's not. The, that's hardly hardly enough. Man needs to be arrested in. Baltimore merged murder charges, and which individuals is this? One of the offices that kicked in the door. Is this to one that signed off for the war which which one was this? Do we know? He's one of the ones that that actually shot. Yes, he of the rounds that he fired. was the ones that hit retailer. Shot eight times. Some of the rounds went into an apartment next door, endangering the three lives in that apartment as well so according to the Mayor they did terminate proceedings last week, and they said that he violated standard operating procedure when his actions displayed an extreme indifference to the value of human life when he fired ten rounds into Brianna till department. Yeah! We need that story. I was GONNA. Say we need the person at. The word that gave the wrong address the person that they had the guy in custody that they were looking for already. That still gave the okay to go into that that that apartment we need all of them. All those people were really reckless. An attorney for Brianna tell his family said that this is just one step, though with still waiting for the other officers to be held accountable for additional charges to be filed, but it is a step in the right direction. Yeah I think once after they fired police officers, and they don't have that protection of the blue, the Blue Wall anymore you know they, they should be charged. They should be charged like anybody else would be charged with murder. That's it. It's crazy. They do the no knock warrant. which was an issue right now, right? They had there Brianna law where they outlawing the no knock Martin's, but it's crazy that this is something. That's still the police officer. One of them finally just got fired in mind you. This is over three months ago. That this happened, so you know but. And shuts it to make mallory because she's definitely a person who's been working really closely with Brianna tail is family and with brand till attorneys to make sure that there is justice, and that's what happens when you lift your voices, and you lift up the people who have these instances that they want to share, and people may not have known all the details, and you can see some movement, and now we just need more movement, and we need to make sure we keep on following up at these stories.

Something Charlemagne that you said during that. was that. Dumping? The Democrats have a problem. Doing is our messaging and getting that you're getting that across the people in defunding police, right? It's a triggering. It's intriguing triggering work. What do y'all think about things like refund the people? Instead of defunding police because we're asking for reinvestment in our communities Karan. Maybe that helped get people in the door, a little bit safer. But what do you think about that? I think find people. There's going to be a trigger for people. The police department so I think. That is really the focal point of it. The financing for the police departments I was thinking that slogan gets the people inside the door. And then when you, when you explain to them how you refunding people now you talk about guy, best thing funds from police department putting that in the mental health services so on and so forth. Yeah, I read a good article that Michael. Harriet wrote about Tim, Scott and you know. He was saying that he likes to. Republican police reform bill a little bit better than Democratic Bill, but it's actually the same bill. with Tim Scott just has Tim Scott has a different. Messing. Still Yeah? Yeah, so he's still talking about the funding the police. He's just messaging in a different way. Yeah, so maybe I should have like a prison abolitionist like calm, and like an police abolitionist coming, explain what it is like fame dialogue that you guys have him and really like let people know like. Hey, it's not gonNA be lawlessness. Have they system? It's just a reimagining of public safety and restorative justice in our prison. Instead of you know punishment. Thank, you for checking in Bravo.

"Held no down to be responsible for this, because that was oftentimes the history of what up happening, where even if you look at a look at just the twenty four months before, Freddie Gray there was tyrone west and there was Chris. Brown and there was Anthony Anderson. So you had names of people where you saw this long line of people who had similar situations as Freddie on arms, or or people who you know where where the what happened to them was nowhere near equal the threat. That was posed. That gone themselves dying in police custody. and. Nobody was convicted for those prime. Dole's indicted for those crimes. There were some financial payout, but that was it and so I. Think for many people in Baltimore. They just assumed that was going to be the case with Freddie Gray. And so when the attorney actually announced charges against the officers. It didn't just it didn't just no I think take a lot of air out of the protests and back made approaches that were plan for the next day. We're exit canceled after those charges were filed. I think for many Baltimoreans. There was this sense of hope that that you're could be as level of accountability. Board improper. Police action. Now we know fast forward is as you mentioned earlier. There were no convictions for for any of the officers on that, but I do think that that moment that time when she announced those charges, something changed in Baltimore, and and hope for measure of accountability for improper police action. I think really feel the air and a sense that people hear us being heard. That's exactly right. Is that what we're screaming out? Is Not just simply going to be dismissed as hyperbole or exaggeration, where where oftentimes the is when people hear about levels of misconduct or or or improper engine rations with with law enforcement, the first immediate reaction is is to the person is say well. What did you do? Or what are how did you provoke it? or where there's there's a there's a a a a blaming of the individual that oftentimes take place, or in in in other cases that we've seen as well, there is the well let's now. We want to learn about their back story, or no, did they have? Do they have something in their system or whatever the case is, and we see this repeatedly especially when it comes to cases of of a of a of a policing and policing challenges in our society, and so when those charges were announced. It was, it was very much a case where I think for many of the protesters, maybe the People Baltimore. It was very much a feeling of. We're seeing and we're heard and we're not being dismissed, and these aren't just being played all exaggerations. Let, me reintroduce you here if you're just joining us.

"Another man made contact with police and then a few minutes later, he was caught and arrested at the seventeen hundred block of Prestbury street over in West Baltimore. And a few minutes later he abandons requested. He was put into leg irons in place into the back of the van an hour after he was placed in the back of that Van after hearing calls for patient care He was then sent to shot trauma at the University of Maryland, medical, center and was actually. They found that that he was in a coma. A day later he went he under underwent a double surgery at shock trauma, and determined that he had three broken vertebrae and an injured voice box. All from that arrest days later he remained in a coma and on April nineteenth, two, thousand, fifteen at seven o'clock in the morning, he was declared dead. Why was he taken into custody? He was taken into custody because after making eye contact with police, he ran and and when the police chased him, and and usually some people might say will what's. Making eye contact the crime well, actually at that time, making contact with the police was enough of a justification for the police to chase you the police chase him on now on an on him. They found what they were they were. They found be a according to the legal legal pocket knife of because it was larger than even the this sort of allowable size when they actually caught him patent and searched him, but that's why he was arrested because he made eye contact with the police in read. After his death. What were the protests like in Baltimore? You know the protests were actually were peaceful in Baltimore. Initially I think once word began to spread. That that Freddie Gray I was in a coma but then specifically once word spread that he had died. There were protests where you saw thousands of people marching the streets, in Baltimore, but again really all peaceful protests. And never really took a different type of time. The only the first time that you saw a different type of turned, the protests was actually. On a Saturday evening, and that was a few days before his actual. And on bad one you saw where some of the protests turned into there were violent directions between some of the protesters, and then also some of the people who were who were outside of Oriole. Stadium, or Parker Baseball. Game was being played at that time was the Baltimore, Orioles replacing the the Boston the Boston. Red Sox and actually during that game, the game was finishing up the protests for taking place outside the stadium, and and the people inside the stadium were asked to stay in the stadium just because they wanted to be able to clear the streets before everyone flooded out the stadium to go back to their cars back to their. the only other the second time that we really saw violence erupts in very serious violence that was really documented all over all over the world was the Monday, and that was the evening of Freddie Gray's funeral. where, even on that day you know the family asked for peace in astronaut protesting that day, because that was a day that they were gonNA late Freddie. Not late Freddie to rest But that was really the night that everything's sparked off and what happened then. What happened then was was a few hours after the funeral ended their start up to be a confrontation between it really start off between police and students, where where one of the larger high schools in West Baltimore School called off Frederick Douglass in Douglas High School right across.

"Your life is yours and your destiny is yours and should not be controlled. By circumstance or a structural limitation that was put in place oftentimes before you're even born, there's something so fundamentally, not just un-american, but there's something so fundamentally inhumane about that Oh. Man was when you describe stuff like this I feel like yes, this is a prosperity Gospel. I can believe s because like it's not the sort that says. That hurts the burden. On the suffer. It's the kind that places the obligation on the shoulders of everyone and like. Can you tell me? That one moment then were you figured out? That life giving community is the only way forward win. Did you figure that out? You know the first time? I think I actually had it. Really kind of explained to me. And I'm. I'm very honest I think at this moment. I did not really fully understand it. Took a little while for me to get it, but it happened when I was about thirteen years old and I really understand at that time. I was I was sent away to a military school when I was thirteen. And and that's because some issues that I was getting into back at home, and so I had a mandatory or military go within the first four days I'd run away five times. And they had these big black gates. That's around the school and they always told if you don't like it here. There's a train station going anytime you want, and so I'll just take them up on their offer and shoot. And they kept fighting me and the second last time I tried to run away. They found me in the middle of the woods because they had drawn a map on how to get to the train station, and they drew me a map because they said it was so pathetic that I kept getting lost for the mouth was faked the maps to the middle of the woods status enjoyed watching. We do service in the woods. Ultra and so they brought back to campus, and and we're in the middle something called police system, so there's no outside communication, no radiophone television nothing you're either going to succeed as a team, or you will fail as a team and the choice was completely yours. and. They said if we don't make an exception. We're going to lose them, so they said more. You've got five minutes to make a phone call. Call whoever you want and I decided to call the only number that I knew which was my mom. And and I'm. Calling, her I'm complaining and I'm like you know Mommy, you know. This is crazy, but I'm like. Listen. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity, but I'm really ready to go all kinds of stuff. And, then she stopped me and she said too. Many people have sacrificed for you to be there and too.

There are so many reasons in so many things that my mom could have easily just given up, yeah! just said it. You know she couldn't do it. and where every single moment where life as soon as she felt like, she was getting her head above water, where life just go ahead and pushes her head down again. you know she in addition to raising her kids. She was also dealing with the fact that she had to move back in. With her with her parents was helping to take care of her parents, while also taking care of children, and by the way, didn't get her first full time job with benefits until I was fourteen years old, so she's working three different jobs literally working up at the crack of dawn, going to her first job wasn't even take a school, because because she was already out the door. By the time she got in from her last job, we were already asleep. This was her reality and it was all that she knew how to do. She got her first full time job with benefits. When I was fourteen years old. The first job she ever got that gave her retirement that gave her healthcare that gave her no reliable hours, yeah. And she never stopped fighting, but she what she did was. She found the thing to fight for and for her. It was her kids. And I learned from my mom. The idea that if you never forget what you're fighting for, you'll never stop fighting. and. That's something I think we all have to embrace. Find that thing that you're fighting for, and you will never stop fighting. That's like it's a quote embarrassed to say. It's a keeping my bathroom, because then I can. Do my hair like read it, but it always says something like like you never know how strong you are until you know how strong love has made you and like I do find like that feeling of being broken open connect so deeply to a sense of agency when I look at my when I look at my son and wanting to be the person.

"With with the book was there were specific moments in both of our lives that help to determine the rest of our lives. and. Some of those moments were things that we had no control over. It wasn't like if yeah, yeah, we. Think about I. Think about you know kind of you know. One of the one of the first things we talk about was was. His mother was the first one in her family to go to college. She graduated from Baltimore City Community College with honors, and then got accepted at Johns Hopkins University. And then as she's a student at Johns, Hopkins University I. Warner Family Go to college. She then receives in a letter, indicating that her pell grants were cut in the pell. Grant is a program that really helps under resource. Low Income Students receive support in order to pay for the cost of higher education. And, so when his mother has her pell grants cut for the second time in three years. She now realized that she cannot afford to finish school. And she never went back. And so she's now walking around with debt, no degree. And I can't help think how different her life could have been had. She had the chance to finish college because it's not just about the piece of paper. It's about that issue moved up in education. Her networks have changed. Her friendships would have changed. Her connections would have changed, and now you fast forward twenty years later. When it's not just west, but it's his older brother, her oldest child. Who is now? Getting picked up on charges of murder. And you think about how these things have consequences, and how those type of decisions the decision to cut the Pell Grant Program. It did not just impact Mary more. It impacted wes. Yeah, because it now limited the opportunities that he a young man who was simply born into this situation, it limited the opportunities that he was going to have for his life, and so you know when we talk about individual decision, making and I feel like there's real mcchord indistinct marriage between the two that it's both personal responsibility, and it's aside responsibility, but often times we talk about personal responsibility, as if that becomes the end all be all thing that can increase mobility, and frankly it's not..

We are acutely aware of our fragility and of our broken this. Both individually and systemically. This week I wanted to highlight one of my favorite voices. who was doing the hard work of racial justice. He is the type of person who lets himself be cracked open to the pain of others. This is the type of love that pushes outward instead of falling inward. This is the love required of the work of justice. May the love and work of justice. We find in stories like West Moors. Open US up to the pain of this moment. May We be awake and aware to the places where racism and inequality exist in our hearts in our communities and in our institutions?

Find it really striking about the mythology of this country with its obsession about who's deserving, and who's not like the sense that life is always fair or with hard work and hustle or that people should pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, but your book starts on a totally different note. Would you mind reading that first paragraph of your book for US absolutely? This is the story of two boys living in Baltimore with similar histories and an identical name. West more. One of us is free and has experienced things that he never knew to dream.

"They're on their feet working such long hours. Try to see the world from their perspective. Don't ring the call bell every five minutes with some minor random requests. There are a lot of people in the hospital. You have to understand that and respect that and then I guess the last thing I would just say was. It says the term that they use a lot in medical circles. Try To be compliant if they tell you to do something. Try to follow that. Because they don't have time to necessarily explain the reasons but their reasons for pretty much every protocol in a hospital. So David we're following your progress and you were tweeting and posting on social media that you were you were doing better than you come off the ventilator and I thought it'd be nice to have this conversation but I was not sure that I should reach out to you and then I did and you responded very quickly even though I think he was still in the hospital. It was march thirtieth so two days before you were released and then of course you've done a number of interviews on some writing. What is the reason why you're being so public and describing you know what's very personal and painful experience? What are you hoping to accomplish by doing that? Well so initially. When I took to social media was just to notify people interacted with that they got symptoms. They should get tested because it was very difficult to get tested unless you could point to an interaction with a known carrier and so I want to let everybody know that I got such a strong response to those initial twitter and facebook postings. I thought you know what? Why don't I try sharing my real-time story of dealing with this disease with a broader audience because again there's just such a hunger for information about this new and unknown disease? So that's what I've been doing over the past few weeks and it's been really gratifying. I mean I heard from a lot of other people struggling this disease. I've heard from the loved ones that people going through it. I try to offer whatever inside can again. I'm not a medical or public health expert but to the extent that something for my experience can help someone. I try to share that and I've tried to use the platform. I have to emphasize a couple of points That this is a very serious disease that can affect even people who were young and generally healthy like myself and I've also just tried to emphasize all the public health warnings in terms of staying home and washing hands and wearing masks Because I I don't know how I got this. It was so called community spread but I don't think I was taking precautions. I mean I know I wasn't taking those precautions back in early March or late February which is probably around the time that I got infected and so I think if we're going to beat this we really need to take concerted action and keep up with what we're doing. Franks again. Good luck to you and your family. Thanks for talking about these things. I know it can't be easy. There were a lot of people pulling for you. We still are and continue to be an important voice. Not just uncovered nineteen and the issues relating to the disease but also on all the legal things you care about Alex forward to talking with you and seeing. Thank you so much for your support during the past few weeks and for me on the show just now Thank you David. Conversation continues for members of the cafe insider community to hear the state bonus material with Wes Moore and David Latte and get the exclusive weekly.

"Bank loans. We've watched how race has shown itself in the history of poverty within our society ever since the inception of our society. So when you have illness light. Covert nineteen which targets vulnerabilities specifically target owner abilities. It should not be shocking to anyone to see why the African American community the Latino Community Communities that also historically have been in impoverished areas are also getting hit significantly harder by the impact of of Kobe nineteen. I think we're also then seeing him. When we're talking about one of the things we have to address and so gill what do we do? We do have to make sure we're doing a greater targeted efforts to making sure that people are getting tested if you have people who are not those who lack insurance those who lack a universal form insurance. There's often chance that they're not going out and getting screened and tested at the same levels of everyone else. We have to be able to target testing to making sure we know where not not. Just what's happening with them operations but whose health concerns need to get address the second component? We have to do a better job of focusing on education and knowledge entry into communities help people understand the importance of social distancing. And the things that need to happen when you often times that that knowledge share has not been been equal and the other pieces. We've got to address the under these underlying conditions that historically and along race lines. We have to be honest about this along race. Lines have impacted populations civically African American populations Latino populations at extraordinarily high levels. What do you think? The consequence long-term will be for policy and people's desires for certain policies based on this catastrophic experience of the corona virus. Do you think long term. And now it's hard to predict these things but you're kind of in this business that long-term people will realize while we were a lot more vulnerable than we thought we'd millions of people who have jobs and they lost their jobs even though they did everything right and worked hard and played by the rules as Bill Clinton used to say. Do you think people will start to realize more than ever before that? This connection that we have in this country between healthcare and employment doesn't make a lot of sense or or. Do you think that we're all going to go back to the same old ways of thinking a year from now? When we're out of this I am going to do everything in my power that we just do not return to some form of new normal as the old normal was okay. My job and my responsibility is to make sure that we come out of this better that we come out of this more compassionate that we come out of this more humane because the short term in the midterm impasse of this. They're going to be devastating. And we know it. It's not even just a health implications of what we're talking about. It is the longterm economic implications of what we're talking about as well where we really could be watching double digit unemployment rates. That is going to be you know months long but in addition that if we really wanted to segregate the data and look at what we're talking about is for people who are living in poverty it's for people and communities that have already been on the first place. This is going have a devastating impact. I was recently just reading something that was saying that we think the unemployment rate even just amongst the African American community once this is all said and done could eclipse anything that we saw during the Great Depression so we know with a short and medium-term impacts are going to be on the economic implications are large society. The thing that I wanna make sure though is that we're also focusing on the long term and the long term is idea that these things that we're wrestling with right now we shouldn't have to rest with. We should not have to have a conversation about whether or not there needs to be a form of Of of healthcare where everyone has a form of coverage and affordable coverage. We should not have to wrestle with conversation of should we have people that are able to verify full day's work that you don't also have to live under the under the burden of poverty and that it's not just government's responsibility but it's a private sectors. It's not proper providers responsibility. It's all our collective responsibility to be able to do that. We should not have to have a conversation about kids who are going into schools and are still finishing high school finishing high school and are still unable to read write and compete at a level. That gets them either college or career ready. We're looking at that in the state of Maryland right now. Where even on high school graduates. These are people who are graduating from high school that we still have the majority of students that are doing mathematics at less than a tenth grade level. This is something that we should need to be have collected conversation as a society about who are we and we also can hide behind this narrative of we can't afford it. We found money. Now you know we basically more than doubled. The Fed's balance sheet. Within a matter of months we find the capital to be able to provide the support of things that we need for to provide capital for things that we want. Now we have to be. We have to be focused. We have to rely on data and rely on efficacy measures to be able to get us to where we need to get to but also we have to make sure that when these crises happen in these crises will show themselves every once in a while that we also need a society that can be resilient and better prepared to be able to deal and adapt and not survive but also strive out. Can I ask you very concrete? Pragmatic question. it's it's right to ask you but I will anyway. You know there are people. Listen to the show and some many many many struggling. But they're also a number I expect Who are fortunate and privileged? Have the ability to to give to to good causes if someone is is out there and they and they wanna do something and they and they have the privilege of being able to say donate a thousand dollars toward some cause. Some people's lives will be made easier during cove in nineteen Jimmy advice to them how they might donate in a way that effective the advice I would give is. It's important for you to find your passion point. We have a collection things broken things that need healing and need repair. And it's important for everybody to find. What is that thing that makes your heart beat a little bit faster for some people? It's animals for some people. It's the environment for some people. It is seniors for some people. It's children babies for some people. It's poverty for those who want to focus on economic injustice in creating system where we can have economic opportunity for all. I would love to have you all as part of our robinhood team and part of our Robin family but I also know that these issues are hard and complex and the reason. We're still wrestling with them are because they are hard and complex and so I ask that for everybody. Find that things that makes your heart beat a little bit faster and get engaged. Get involved find the organizations that are doing really good work make sure these organizations that have no not just not just internally but externally are proven on a repeated basis to be smart and efficient with capital and are really trying to address the issue from structural races. And then making sure that you're making your voice present that you can be. You can be generous in the way you can be generous but generosity does not simply mean who writes a big check. Generosity also means WHO's willing to put in the work who's willing to put in some elbow grease who's willing to contact whether to me is a CEO or someone else my organization with a really interesting idea or really cool partnership that we might want to explore some of the things we worked on even during this relief process Have Been Not just a capital that we put out but some of the really creative and unique partnerships that we've been able to build because there's not one organization is GONNA solve his problem and so the thing that I would ask everybody to do is find that thing in our society that you know can functionally address an issue and really put work in time into it. Half of all money to in philanthropy every single year half goes into colleges and universities I e Alma maters. Nothing against all maters and nothing against the you know the the colleges and universities that people attend but if we really want to think about what are the big challenges that our society is facing increasing the endowment of your Alma Mater. Should that be at the top of your list? I don't know that's a personal choice for you to make the only thing I ask that. There's a lot of big issues that people are facing right now and would love your leaning. You had a book that was coming out this week and like so. Many things has been has been moved tells the name of the book and when it's coming out yes so the the the name of the book is called five days and it's really about five days in. Baltimore the eyes of a different people and the five days in Baltimore that I capture are related. Five days around the unrest took place around the death of Freddie Gray and this was a you know exactly five years ago that this happened and it was amazing because one thing that I've found even now and what we saw back then is that Freddie Gray died in the hands of he died in police custody and this this was also during a time when this was taking place all throughout the country. Where you know. The The Guardian reported that even during the summer of two thousand fifteen over one hundred African Americans died at the hands of police violence and what was really interesting about it was as I continue to dig into this. We solvent that. What happened to Freddie at that time was about the dangers horrid excessive police force necessitates violence? But the truth. Is that even if you look at the two years before Freddie Gray in Baltimore in the Baltimore region alone. There was also no. There was Anthony Anderson and there was Chris Brown tyrone West. There was other people who had similar circumstances and similar interactions that lead to a similar fate. But there was something else about this about this moment that really triggered something. Different and one of the things are really captured. Me About this story and about you know really wanted to dig into the live in those five days in Baltimore. Through the eyes of these eight people was the as heartbreaking. As Freddie Gray's death was was also heartbreaking. Was HIS LIFE. This was a young man who was born months premature addicted to heroin. Both him and his twin sisters his mother never made it to high school. She couldn't read nor write when they were finally allowed out of the hospital they went to. They moved into a housing project. In North Kerry Street which is in West Baltimore and later on in two thousand nine Actually that house along over four hundred others were involved in in a civil suit because that house was poising them with endemic levels of lead so Freddie Gray at this point he is born underweight addicted to heroin.

"They have a role in the fact that when many of these fortune five hundred companies these companies that at all when they speak people. Listen when they speak policy. Makers listen and so the things that you're speaking about making sure that those things you're speaking about are not just the things that are going to impact your quarterly. Earning reports but impact the community impact your shareholders and the people who aren't yet shareholders. Impact the people that better than that hold equity in your company and those who can't afford health equity in your company making sure that the ways you're using your voice as you making sure the ways you using your influence are going to have a larger societal impact that actually create a level of fairness imperative equity in large society. That's how they can be. That's how they can use their voice so I promise you wanted to ask about your background you have you have a fascinating bio and first of all you have some tough times growing up right now. It's You know I think about the thing that I moved me to New York We're down in Maryland and When I was Almost four years old father died in front of me and And so my mom at that point became a widow with three kids that she was going to raise on her own And this was not the life that she had prepared for or expected. Miss the same mom what we were saying earlier. You know always fourteen when she got the first job her first full time job And so she was having a really difficult time with the transition and finally she called up my grandparents who lived up in the Bronx. My grandfather was a minister in the South Bronx. My grandmother was a schoolteacher in the south. Bronx and And we went to go live with them and had a really difficult time. We transitions up to New York where I very quickly found myself in a in a place in a society in Franklin a community that was chronically ignored An elected tough neighborhood tough neighborhoods and and the thing is we knew it. It was an ignored neighborhood and we knew it and so think about the psychological impact on a child. Orange Children Orange families existing in that The first time that I felt handcuffs my wrist was when I was eleven years old and in many ways what brings even this evolution. Is Robin Hood very much? Full Circle was the neighborhood that I grew up in was one of the first neighborhoods robinhood invested in. And and so. It's one of the reasons that I take this role in this job so seriously. It's the fact that we have a responsibility to do something and I think I saw very much in my own life in my own evolution where people can say well. It's great that you had a a mom that fought for you or you were willing to take advantage of opportunities or whatever and the truth is all that is right. My family was remarkably lucky My my family was resilient. My family. You know we went through a lot but we had each other But be a prerequisite luck should be something that if a family doesn't have that their opportunities or not there We have to create better frameworks for people that we don't necessarily have to have exceptions. I I know I stand here today. as a core exception to a lot of statistics to a court as a core exception to a lot of things that could have happened to me right And that's the thing that motivates me because I can't stand exceptions. Our society shouldn't have them. Our society shouldn't tolerate them. That shouldn't be not to help people get to bed at night that we have to do a better job of actually creating frameworks where where we're promise can be promised to people right and then you went to. School College back in Baltimore. Yes so I actually I. I went to a junior college. Okay I started off. I joined the army right out of high school. Okay I went to junior college. Got My associates degree and college and then from there. I transferred to Johns Hopkins University right and Which both brought me back to Baltimore. I loved Because we'd moved back to Baltimore when I was about fourteen years old But then also I think gave me a different type perspective as to how I could think about right. We're old and my place in it and so why I transferring from junior college right to go to To to Hopkins I ended up completing options and getting a Rhode scholarship out of there And so and I think that from their kind of very much set me on a different thought process and a pattern about the type of things that I wanted to do my life type of change and I wanted to go back into the army after that I did and I did game an army captain so I I In fact I I left for Oxford on September. Twenty third of two thousand and one so just a couple of weeks after nine eleven in fact I was one of the We had one of the first transatlantic flights that was permitted to go and And it's pretty jarring experience because for many of the soldiers white trained with many soldiers. Why did all my All my basic training with as I was getting ready to head off to England You know they were getting ready to help overseas to war right And I remember even having conversations myself and and some of the Army of folks who who got the roads that year a saying so should we leave. Should we go back with our units? Should we do this thing? And the army was very clear said You're where you need to be right now. We're we'll remember you find you but you ended up serving in. I didn't in two thousand. Six hundred five doesn't five in two thousand six I was I was in Afghanistan On in the border region of a place called coast which is on the border region of off Ghanistan Pakistan House here with the eighty second airborne division which was one of the more Extraordinary experiences in my life. Because you got a chance to see people you know men and women who were just had amazing acts of heroism Amazing acts of courage people who believe deeply in in in the hope of this country in protecting the hope of this country and And so I was I was I was. I was thankful for the chance to serve with such remarkable people and then you ended up going to Wall Street for a bit. I did right. We're an investment banker. I was investment banker I Also elbow plays right but also also sharp level of lace And you know it was interesting because I I had a chance of city knowing I went to city And and really had a had a had a good experience and learned a lot and really figured it is something that I was good at.

"And so when we're talking about poverty you're really not talking about a small distinct group. You're not talking about people in a specific borough or people who make up You know a specific demographic. It's half of everybody that we see walking around and that's the that's that's the thing about poverty that we know is just completely intolerable but has the number grown. I mean we hear a lot about wealth and income inequality so it. It seems like it hasn't gotten better. I mean anecdotally. You see more homeless people on the streets obviously California. That problem gotten extreme huge and hasn't gotten any better here right. How's the number changed? Say Over the past five or ten years. Well it's the same thing even if you you know you're right. California's significant issues As New York I mean the number of people who are homeless housing insecure. New York has has just about doubled in the past five years So this is something. That's a long term challenge that the city is still continuing to face One of the other dynamics that we've seen when it comes to poverty is the face of poverty also continues to change where where if you look at the fact that we have a A lowering unemployment rate but that the poverty rate really hasn't nudge at all that. Well what it means is that you're having more people who are working for people who are working jobs in some cases multiple jobs and they're still living in poverty and that's why there's this there's this idea in this narrative about people who are living in poverty. Well if they would just work harder or if they would just get a job. The problem is for the majority of people who were living in poverty. They do have jobs. Does that mean we should raise the minimum wage in in means? We need to come with a multitude of answers to include raising wages. Yes it means. It means that if you have people who are working a full day's work and still living in poverty. There's something fundamentally wrong with that dynamic. I mean you could suggest even that that business is explaining those people in the sense that they're getting paid it's illegal transaction yet. These people are still not able to take care of themselves right I it. It means that we have to really value work right inside of our society and when you have a situation where you have people who are working in some cases multiple jobs and still not able to do the basics of supporting their family. We're not valuing work. We're not evaluating effort. Where not being honest about what it means to be able to to really support people in this environment. I mean I think about my my my own mom I mean I was fourteen. I was fourteen years old when my mom got her first job. That actually gave her benefits fourteen. You know I was fourteen. My mom got her first job. That gave a reliable hours or would she only had to work one job so not having to work. Multiple jobs You Know No. We need to tell my mom that she needed to work harder. My mom would anybody who tried to have an argument with her but the reality is is that the structures and systems of work that we had in place where not giving her the breathing room in order for her to be able to balance everything that she had to manage. And so we have that same dynamic. That's taking place right now. Where we have this this this this falsity that that you know that if people just work hard enough that they're going to be okay. The statistics both and the anecdotes around it shows. That's just not true. Our job is to help the fix that we talked about your mom. I WanNa ask you more about your background but I want to ask you about the political environment a little bit west because things have become so politicized and do you find yourself. Having to avoid politics I mean. Is it kind of a tight rope? A little bit with say you're wealthy donors on the other hand. You're trying to address the issue of poverty or is it something that you find easy to cut across political lines. I find it to be imperative that were involved in the policy conversation there. We have policies that are putting people and keeping people in poverty and so we can't lie to ourselves and just simply say we're going to grant make our way out of this. The reason we have so much poverty in our society is not because philanthropy hasn't done its job or philanthropy hasn't done enough. It's the fact that we have structures and systems that continue to allow this level of inequality to take place. And so when I think about the fact that Robin Hood Actually now is built out an entire An entire public policy element to our organization. It wasn't to make to do something new. It wasn't to do to create a Shiny. New Object is about the fact that we have a responsibility to be involved in the policy conversation. We're going to use data to be able to figure out where we land know. We don't make a motive splurges but at the same time. We have to make sure that we're using our voice in a true and in a realistic way about. How are we making our jobs easier? And so when we're talking about this work I I don't see how you know. I don't see how we can avoid being involved in policy. What are some of the policies? You guys are espousing then so I mean you need to be changed so I mean so I I think it's everything from how we think about the allocation of dollars and supports of organization versus. How are we thinking about supports for for for individual families You know we we got involved For example over the past year thinking about how we're supporting organizations that are doing work you know. The vast majority of social service work that takes place within the city of New York around. The country is actually taking place by nonprofit organizations And then often time if they are being contracted out by the governments It's in you know. Not only is the payments come late payments also were not on the equivalent dollar amount. It's about eighty percents in eighty eight cents to the dollar that they're being paid out for it so being able to address those disparities does matter to us because not only are they are community partners. These are people. Were fundamentally doing the work. It's Dan are being backed up in Battfield by oftentimes philanthropic dollars and even bank loans. And so it's not fair to the organizations that are doing the work Howard thinking about things like making adjustments to other basic supports like child tax credits and And snap these. Are things that if we if if you were to make any forms of adjustments on these type of frameworks in pullback you could significantly increase the number of people who are living in poverty overnight and so we feel like it's our responsibility to both push back on policies and adjustments. That are gonNA hurt those who are most vulnerable but also be able to introduce it encourage policies that are going to create a true lasting level of sustainable mobility for our families. Do you think someone like Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren is right. That you know billionaires are are stealing from the system and it's a problem that needs to be addressed. I think for for anybody who is willing to make poverty their issue for anybody. Who's willing to be philanthropic supportive to an organization because if you look at it this way There's about seven hundred billion dollars. Every year that goes towards philanthropy right real number About half of that number goes to universities half a philanthropic giving goes to university. So you're talking about now. If you take that away we now have about three hundred and fifty million a billion dollars. That's leftover If you take that number half of that number goes to homes of worship and also to Goes homes of worship also hospitals right. So now you have about a hundred and seventy five billion dollars philanthropy. That's leftover debt goes towards everything else animals. The environment veterans children seniors wealth inequality and poverty. And so when you think about it that when you think about the level and the size of the problem that we're trying to face the fact that there are people who are willing to be philanthropic and give their and put a portion of their giving their philanthropy towards issue that's meaningful to us. Because not only do we feel that. It's a problem that deserves attention and deserves a level of focus. It's a problem that frankly you know running this organization I I don't have the luxury to say who should and should not be involved in this conversation. I need to make sure that everybody's involved this conversation because all of us have a level complicity for the fact that we have this problem and so if that's the case everybody needs to be all in trying to find a solution to it. Would you like to put yourself out of business? I'd love to I. I I think the reason that we have so many community based organizations is because there's a breakdown somewhere if I why is that well if we support? If we support Organization for example that focuses on giving a quality education to a child right the reason they exist is because that child is not receiving a quality education elsewhere. If there's an organization that provides housing support if there's an organization that provides job training to people who were coming back from incarceration if there's an organization that supports transportation assets for seniors. The reason is because something is not working that that basic resource that basic support is not in place so this organization now feels a need to be able to fill that hole. I feel like when we think about our organization the organizations we support everybody in the social service space. Our responsibility should be not just to address a very human problem that takes place right now but also. How do we make sure that we don't have to keep on fixing the same problem? How do we make sure we're not continuing to have to fill the same holes that exists particularly we know what the whole czar and so. That's one of the reasons even talk about the the policy conversation part of the reason that we're involved in that is there's a policy breakdown somewhere that makes these things happen and macy's things real there's a There's a quote that I keep my on my desk From Dr King and the Quote Says Philanthropy is commendable but the philanthropists can never forget the economic injustice that makes philanthropy necessary. That in many ways is our northstar where the philanthropy matters. It is commendable. It is life saving in many ways. But let's not forget why we need philanthropy in the first place the reasons because there's a larger system of economic injustice. That still needs to be served. Is there a role for the private sector? What can I mean? There is a role obviously. But but what role is there for big companies? You know the fortune five hundred here. I think the role of fortune five hundred companies is Is is big and broad and vast right because it's not just about making sure that we were both hiring people and paying people fairly and and doing all that stuff which is which is which is base line But there's also a role about. How can they think creatively about their voice? How to think creatively about utilizing the all the other assets that they have in place you have fortune five hundred companies that have assets in communities all over where they have a role communities that they are in the communities that they're serving to be able to better support their communities..
