Places to Fly Fish
"Desportivo fly-fishing has become a favorite way for many urbanites to decompress. And that's how Chris Santillo started his fifty places recreation guides. He now also writes about places to paddle bicycle golf end snowboard, but his number one passion is fly fishing Chris thanks for joining US great to be here, Rick. Thanks what is it about fly fishing that those who know it and love it or so passionate about I've thought about this a lot oftentimes when I'm out on the river and I think that people come at it from a lot of different directions I. I think there's the chance to be out in nature in a quiet and beautiful place. There's an old saying that's trout don't live in ugly places and neither do bone Fisher Tarp in Atlantic Salmon. So you're usually in pretty pristine places that can support these fish species. About especially, if you're river fishing about being in the water, I don't mean to sound cliche but there is something about the oneness of being with the river in that sense of flow I drive a lot over mountains and past beautiful rivers in Europe and the United States and I see a lot of people with hip Bhutan standing deepen in the river and there is something. Special about that I would imagine you have there is a feeling of being. In the moment and in the flow of life of the rivers as a metaphor for flow of life and time passing, and it's never the same water that you're standing in and I think there is something profound rap subliminal about that that has an appeal There is an analytic. A fly fishing I think it has appealed to people the whole idea of trying to determine what the Fisher eating at a given time, and then trying to either look in your fly box and find the the right fly that seems to match the kind of bugs at the trout might eating or I know some friends will bring a fly tying vice in some feathers and hair and hooks to the side of a stream, and if they don't have what the right bug is at the time or the right fly, they will go and tie it. Up on the spot and hope that they're going to make that match matching the hatches, the term that writer named Ernie Schreiber came up with years ago the hatch being the kind of insect that is occurring on the river at that time but just having the arsenal and matching the flame with the others that are being eaten that's probably integral to being successful fly, Fisher and very important, and you'll find some anglers that are you know better equipped than others I've been out with some friends who will have literally five hundred or a thousand flies. I usually have one or two boxes and and hope that what I have. Oh, cover things ninety percent of the time, but there's always ten percent that doesn't work and one blanket work. Great. This morning in another flight would work great in the same hole this afternoon exactly because what happens on many river systems as you will have different sorts of insects emerging coming out of river or settling down upon the river at different times of the day you might have may flies that are. Popping up from the bottom of the river as Nymphs, and then turning into adult bugs and being on the surface in the morning, and that might be a white insect, the size of your Pinky Nail, and then in the afternoon as it gets warmer, the grasshoppers might become active and the wind may be him into the river and they are green and yellow, and they're the size of your thumb. It's sort of a a battle going on what are the it is it's man versus nature. Chris and Taylor has written a dozen best selling books about outdoor adventures in his fifty places series. One of his titles collects the thoughts of Passionate Anglers Y. I, fly fish and their favorite fishing places are covered in fifty more places to fly fish before you die you'll also see Chris's byline and major sport fishing publications.
Fresh update on "white" discussed on Pat McCrory Show w/ Bo Thompson
"Last year, making it number one in the state again before A pandemic hit House Democrats preparing another Corona virus relief measures. Talks remain stalled with Republican leaders and the White House House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could move forward on a vote next week on a smaller Corona virus relief bill. Talks between the speaker and Treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin have gone nowhere for weeks. The latest proposal would lower the price tag from a previously passed house, built by about a trillion dollars likely totaling between 2.2 and $2.4. Trillion that is still far more than Republicans have indicated they'd approve in another round of stimulus..
The relationship between Justice Scalia and RBG
"Lies in state in the Capitol today, the first woman ever given that honor in the first Supreme Court justice since William Howard Taft and he'd also been the president. Justice. Ginsburg's casket was at the court for two days for people to pay their respects, including President Trump, and the first lady booed when they got there. The president has had nice things to say about Justice Ginsburg since her death, you may agree. You may not disagree with her, but he was an inspiration to a tremendous number of people. 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.

Undercutting Scientists, Trump Says Tightening Covid-19 Vaccine Guidelines ‘Sounds Like a Political Move’
"Tonight President Trump is now threatening to overrule the FDA if he doesn't approve of the FDA's tougher guidelines potential vaccine Dr Anthony Fauci saying tonight I would back scientists and now the state's this evening where they say they'll have their own review of the vaccine. Here's Mary Bruce. After Touting Corona virus vaccine by election day president trump is now threatening to reject stricter safety standards that could slow down. It's release once again, undermining his own help officials. We're looking at that that has to be approved by the white has we may or may not approve it That sounds like a political move tonight, four vaccines are in their final trials, but new rules from the FDA would reportedly require drug makers to monitor trial volunteers for an additional two months. Dr Anthony Fauci coming to the FDA's defense they look at it and say, we really feel strongly we should go this way I would back the scientists. We'd have to do that as a scientist Xiaojie said they may not need the additional monitoring if the vaccine is overwhelmingly effective but stressed if they go ahead with, it is only to ensure the safety of the vaccine to get rid of. Completely, any further waiting for safety I think most scientists would say, no, you really gotta be careful the FDA declined to comment on the president's threat, but just hours earlier testifying on Capitol Hill. The FDA. Commissioner was adamant they are being guided by science not politics are thorough review processes and science will guide our decisions. FDA will not permit any pressure from anyone to change that vaccine could be authorized as soon as next month, but it is not expected to be widely distributed until next spring with concerns that the White House is increasingly injecting politics into the pandemic response New York today announced it's going to conduct its own review of any vaccine. Frankly, I'm not going to trust the federal government's opinion. And I wouldn't recommend New Yorkers based on the federal government's opinion tonight at least five other states in Washington. DC have also said they would conduct their own evaluations before distributing a vaccine with two hundred and two thousand. Americans. Now, dead officials are predicting up to twenty three thousand more dead by mid October, and now we're learning about a large study out of Houston, that is. Not.

Thousands Of Airline Workers Facing Unemployment As Aid Package Stalls In Congress
"Is the airline industry. Air travel demand is down a wop a whopping 70% from last year and tens of thousands of airline pilots, flight attendants, a reservation agents and other industry workers are poised to lose their paychecks next week if Congress doesn't extend federal aid for airlines. NPR's David Shaper reports. A nation's airlines are at a crossroads. Or maybe I should say cross runways at the start of the year. On average about 2.5 million people were flying every day. Now that's plummeted to around 700,000, and until there are widely available vaccines or treatments for covert 19. Most passengers won't be coming back any time soon. You can't run an airline that a third the size it was and expect to keep all the same people. Elaine Backer is an airline industry analyst for investment Bank Cowan. I feel like in this country we've shifted from flattening the curve to waiting for a cure or a vaccine, and and that just means the pain is going to be longer in the cares act, Congress provided $25 billion a direct payroll support to the airlines so they could keep paying their employees through the end of September. Already, tens of thousands of workers have taken early retirement or other incentives to leave their jobs. But now the airlines air notifying another 75,000 that they may be out of a job. October 1st getting that for letter in the mail. Completely shocking. Isaiah Gonzalez is an aircraft maintenance worker for united at New York's LaGuardia Airport. The first thing that came to mind with how I was going to support my family people who depend on me. How was I going to keep the income? I was going to keep the family afloat, and Gonzalez is not alone. Me. Getting fellow is like this devastating. Tony Valentine is a reservations agent for United Airlines in Detroit. I have six that depend on me Arrange it age from 2 to 22, Valentine says. That's a houseful with a whole lot of bills. In addition, she says her husband suffered a serious stroke last year. And knowing that I may not have insurance to finishes is like I feel like I failed often at loggerheads. The unions representing these and other airline employees are now in rare harmony with airline CEOs in pressing Congress for a six month extension of the payroll support program. The industries in dire straits Nick Calio heads the industry group Airlines for America at one point Passenger traffic was down 96%. It's now down 70%. Still, one third of our planes are parked not flying, and we're losing $5 billion a month. The airlines unions and bipartisan majorities in Congress agree that the six months of payroll support worked in keeping airline employees off of unemployment rolls. In the tens of thousands of layoffs now might send shockwaves through the economy. Missouri Congressman Sam Graves is the ranking Republican on the House Transportation Committee. We absolutely cannot let an entire sector of the economy collapse, and that's exactly what will happen if we do not get this extension done yet. The airline funding is tied to broader Corona virus relief that the White House and Congress cannot agree upon. Here's American airline CEO Doug Parker. I just can't believe that we may not be able to do the right thing. Simply because our elected officials can't come to any sort of compromise agreement were better in that. Still, someone of providing billions Warren taxpayer money doesn't just put off the inevitable as airlines will need to restructure to match the reduced demand. Legislation that would extend payroll support for the airlines was introduced in the Senate this week. But if it isn't passed soon, thousands of airline employees may be out of work One week from today. David Shaper NPR news

US election: McConnell promises an 'orderly' transition of power
"It was not something. You would ever expect to hear the president of the United. States say from the White House briefing room. Will you commit to making sure that there is a peaceful transfer? Of Power after the election going have to see what happens. You know that I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are disaster get rid of the ballots and you'll have a very Very peaceful there won't be a transfer frankly there'll be a continuation. It is. To see the president talking. So openly about invalidating the election, if he doesn't win and it's something that we shouldn't overlook even if sometimes we feel numb after five plus years of shocking comments since this President I started running for office. Now they were reassurances from the Republican side of the aisle affirmations that the winner of the presidential election would be inaugurated on January twentieth. And it wasn't just the usual suspects like Mitt, Romney? It was also from the likes of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Congresswoman Liz Cheney. But those reassurances aren't really calling the president's remark what is voter suppression in plain sight and that plus an aggressive legal strategy and a conservative Supreme Court that seems to be the president's plan to take the election no matter why

All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the
Is Stainless Steel Really Stainless?
"Bathroom, sinks and kitchen appliances to New York's Chrysler building, and the Saint Louis. Gateway. Arch. The world sometimes seems like it's covered in stainless steel. And why not the material is not only sturdy and versatile, but also stainless as the name implies, but is it really impossible to stain stainless steel? Stainless steel is a family of materials that gets its handle from corrosion and oxidation resistant properties that protect it from rust and unsightly botches. Generally, these steals our mixture of iron end at least ten point, five percent chromium sometimes rounded to eleven percent by engineers. When exposed to oxygen and moisture a for instance, when a stainless steel pan is nick door dinged chromium is an element that produces thin oxide film, the coats the product. This self repairing feature of stainless steel ensures the object will always look smooth and shiny. Various European American metallurgists claim to have invented. This wonders material. A We do know that Croup ironworks in Germany created an acid resistant steel as early as nineteen eight, it was used for the hell of a yacht. To other German researchers discovered the relationship between chromium content and corrosion resistance that metal containing at least ten point five percent chromium had a greater resistance to corrosion. Meanwhile American. elwood Haynes patented one type of stainless steel precursor in nine eleven and English researcher. Harry brearley developed a similar material around the same time. After a four year dustup in which hanes successfully opposed brearley's attempt to patent his version of the steel, the to pooled resources to market their wares as the American stainless steel. Company. These and other stainless bells found their way into cutlery airplane parts, Gulf clubs, and Adams almost immediately. But not all stainless steel is created equal. There are four main types of stainless steel classified by structure and composition. The most common variety is static sixty, five percent of the stainless steel produced. All's in this category. A static steals can be found in products ranging from cutlery and cookware to automotive trim and industrial applications. Immaterial pains at least sixteen percent chromium no more than zero point one, five percent carbon and usually includes nickel or manganese for added their ability. Meanwhile. For riddick stainless steels contain up to twenty seven percent chromium often as well as aluminum or titanium, but if little or no nickel. means that while these materials are highly resistant to Croatian, they're less durable than their austin cousins. For riddick steals are more affordable than Austin attic varieties and are commonly used in Mufflers, exhaust, systems kitchen counters, and sinks. Then we have Martin's stainless steels which are less corrosion resistant than the first two types, but are noted for their extreme strength and durability. Of the material contains twelve fourteen percent chromium along with small amounts of Molybdenum and carbon. These steals also contain little to no nickel less than two percent. Martin's stainless steels are magnetic and are often used in products where this feature's useful like a kitchen back splash to which spice rack or other metal object can be attached without using fasteners. A finally duplex stainless steels combined the benefits of Austin night and fair right to provide enhanced decay resistance and beefed up strength and durability. metallurgists typically look to create a mix that's half Austin and half foretich. The result is material that features more chromium and less nickel than his found in Pure Austin at steals about twenty to twenty, five percent chromium and five percent nickel as well as a high level of Molybdenum. These deals are primarily used in chemical plants and piping applications. You may have noticed our use of the term resistant when referring to these stainless steels capacity for avoiding blemishes. So is the material just stain resistant or completely stain proof? And despite the hardy protection that it affords users, stainless steel is more stain less and stainless in other words while the material is highly resistant to discoloration blemishes and other imperfections, it's not completely impenetrable. Just look at the Gateway Arch, which is starting to show its age with breast and K after five decades of welcoming tourists to saint. Louis. The protective layer of film covering a stainless steel object can break down over time leading to corrosion and pitting. In addition compounds like chloride, hydrogen and hydrogen sulfide often caused the film to stress and crack. The level of rest resistance provided by a particular steel depends largely on the materials used to create it the more chromium, the more corrosion protection. The sturdier stainless steels also feature at least eight percent nickel, which provides further defense against tarnish. Some products are tagged with numbers indicating their proportions of chromium and nickel. For instance, eighteen over ten flatware is sold at a premium because it has eighteen percent chromium and ten percent nickel content providing greater protection against corrosion than ordinary flatware. For household users it's important to understand that many metals advertised a stainless steel are actually stainless steel played it. The plate is corrosion resistant, but is susceptible to damage if cut or scratched deep enough to reach the. Material because the plates can also wear off over time, buyers should clarify whether a particular product is made completely of stainless steel or simply plated. Whether played it or not. You're stainless steel appliances and other products need to be cleaned. Most of the time good old fashioned soap and water will do the trick for tougher stains. Professionals recommend variety of household remedies. A couple of dabs of olive oil or window cleaner can remove most of those pesky fingerprints and smudges while white or cider vinegar will restore shine. A don't use steel wool pads or harsh cleaning powders as they'll scratched surface. If you need to remove burnt on food from stainless steel pan, let it soak in warm water and then clean it with baking soda and Gentle Nylon or plant based scouring pad.
Interview with Glory Edim
"Her second in policy, which we look forward to hearing more about welcome glory are you having me? Oh thank you so much for joining us in your kicking off our season two of the podcast series. So what a way to start the fall? Oh, this is incredible. I'm glad to be a guest I am a fan of your work. In addition to just enjoying the book itself, I'm a fan of what you've been able to accomplish with well red black girl particularly in the way of used the platform of of a literary network to intentionally highlight narratives that are often ignored or ones that disappear from her collective consciousness as to African descended womanhood, the beauty and diversity of our voices experiences I enjoy speaking to people like yourself and I often wonder how is this person get here? What was their journey like? Why do they do what they do? So you ready to get into it? Yes, I am. Act One call to adventure. As a writer entrepreneur, of course, there are paths that we take and processes that we engage in to get us to where we are today, and sometimes we do that. Emotionally, we have spiritual processes, intellectual ones, and so on. How did you become interested in doing the work you do today? Well, it was a long and Berry unexpected journey and I think it really started for me at Howard University by alumni really supported me feel seen in loves and space where black women aren't always valued our university boosted lifted me up. So it was there that I countered Zora Neil hurston and Tony Morrison and my Angelo, all incredible authors that allowed me to see myself more clear in allowed needs to really start to think about who I wasn't the world in the work that I wanted to do, and originally I majored in journalism and I minored in geology and I was always surrounded by just incredible people that motivated me whether it's my professors my best friends I just always had a beautiful reflection to someone saving mealy you can do this and whether it was reading pursuing journalism, I, always find courage is supported and I think that's the main takeaway from my spirit's is becoming not. Yet or do serve the festival and so many other names. It's having a support system being passionate and being able to identify what your vision is. Jahns I've been able to say without a doubt that my purpose to really be of service to other black women and help uplift them in a leary space yawns I gained so much joy from that. I didn't know that was what I was going to be doing when I was a freshman in college, but it just organically happened as I started pursuing my career. Network in meeting other people it just services evolved this beautiful way. So years later, we well red black girl but I know that seed was planted on campus our university I, like fat because and maybe this is just my own personal perspective of going to a Pwi a predominantly white institution that it's not to say that you don't have professors that encourage and cultivate you your skills, your interest but I wonder if if it's something about going to an HP, see you that it's like Hashtag black excellence all around and then you. Just really entrenched in that moment of Oh, you dig Tony Morrison to, and it's not like we have one week where we covered Tony Morrison then that's it. No, it's extends like it's like the whole life cycle like I think back when I was a freshman I taught at a school that was called the Maya Angelou Public Charter school and I don't think I could have done that anywhere else but in DC as a student at Howard University and those moments gave me again the sense of purpose of helping. Other children and working in space with other black students and working with black professors just around we twenty four, seven that I didn't have I didn't have a chance to second-guessed took away. Any doubt I had when I was at a randomly whites all as a high school student and then when I graduated I, just have the sense of I mean in.

"white" Discussed on Nice White Parents
"Nice. White parents made by serial productions and brought to you by the New York Times. And when I take you back to a time when a group of idealistic people feeling hopeful about the future about America threw themselves into the fight for racial integration. It was nineteen, sixty three and near city was planning to build a new school right next to a housing project where the students would be almost entirely black and Puerto. Rican. But these way parents came in and said, no, no, no, no don't build it. They're put it closer to the weight neighborhood that way all our kids can go to school together. They were dogged these way parents lobbying the city at meetings writing letters saying don't build it. There will inevitably be a segregated school and we want our kids to mix with black and Puerto Rican kids from the projects. It's a decade after Brown v Board of Education they said schools should be integrated. There's an archive filled with letters where the parents row things like we don't want our white children to be part of some quote small white, middle income. Click. The board of Education agreed changed the entire plan and located the building the white parents wanted it. A few years later, the school finally opened. And then. None of them sent their kids there. And went through this box of letters called as many parents as I could not a single person actually sent their kid to the school not one. What happened I remember thinking very clearly that okay. I. Believe in this. But I don't. Want to sacrifice my children to it. No. As I said, I'm a quaker and so my kids went to quaker school. You're a quaker when you wrote this letter asking for an integrated. Believe in Ed but That we say a lot of things that are politically correct without even realizing that we are not telling exactly how we feel. For years I've been looking for an answer to the question why don't public schools work better? What is getting in the way of giving each child and equal opportunity and equal education. But now I. Think I've been looking in the wrong places for what's broken in our schools I. Think you can't understand what's broken if you don't look here. One of the most powerful forces shaping public education. White parents. From cereal productions, it's nice. Wait parents a new show about the sixty year relationship between white parents and the public school down the block. I'm Klina Joffe Walt.

"Right Western RPG's Yuck. Well. I bought defendant divinity original sin one on the steam sale I have previously played divinity original sin to which is a better game divinity originals in which usually sequels should be better than the originals. Often the case. Larry Studios, of course in my brain particularly. I mean one divinity to original sin is one of the best. Western RPG's of the last decade It's certainly. And also Syrian is making bogey three? Which is my most? Anticipated Game of Twenty, twenty, twenty, twenty one I'm going to tell myself next month that I will not get the early access for Baldur's gate three on steam. And I will hold off until it actually fully releases then as soon as it is available, I will purchase it I already know that this is going to happen. I received a message for my future self. But I've always wanted to play divinity sentimental of divinity original one It's definitely. One Hand. The story is very well told. You can definitely see a lot of how. The studio tells its stories and While not quite as good as as a Richardson to still there. The problem of course is a mechanically divinity. Original sin is much worse than to. There's a lot of quality of life improvements that they make in the second game, just not present in the first their system for leveling up their system for character management their system for basically every thing is much much better in the second game That it's a little hard to play the first one, but the story is very enjoyable. It's very fun. It's the right mix between. lighthearted, but also serious so I'll continue to play it at like kind of medium pace, but it's I can definitely recommend it to people who are looking for a good. If you've already played through a bunch of the more recent, American roleplaying Games, definitely I can recommend and is of course extremely cheap on the steam summer sale. Which I think, we'll be over by the time. This episode goes up, but. It is a good is a good deal to get on definitely worth buying on sale and very enjoyable to play. I want to. Semi birthday it's. The good guys. Straightforward faiths farmland faces three games released semi SORTA. Kinda, as one Where you play, and this is the prologue. South not a good spoiler that you play as a princess raised in one family finds. She was kidnapped from another royal family aimed at which is the kingdom at war. The other row family are very clear, the good guys and the Roca were raised him ends up being run by like a mad fascist king when you. And you choose what side you're on. I played a good guy side. And The guys site his birthright. It is fine It's like after the first six chapters that was convinced I was versus chapters are like where it sets all this up and it like seems like it's really compelling, and then it's literally like the entire game is like you start to work for the capital. And then have sites on the way. And then eventually you marched on the capital. Ill the gang. That was. Really straightforward. You? Leave to go to the capital and the new so. And it was Oh, I don't know a lot of between then you get married. Insert your child in a trans historical are all that happens as like beside. Christy subtexts stuff, it makes also sense, it makes no sense their dislike. Oh, in the previous game we had kids never really liked it. Let's do it again. And come up with no compelling story reason at least awakening had a compelling story. Reasons had a solid stories. You totally should have limited it so like the first two or three, instead of letting it be like well, but. Either rich way. It R-. It's really not effective. The game plays Nice I like that instead of the normal fire and characters feudal Japanese inspired characters. So. Amber! That's the only one I played over this what I'm talking about. I like that conquest is supposedly much harder doesn't let you level grind, and has really interesting mats and maps and an exciting to plant, except that you're on the side of the fascist thing. Really, WANNA fantasy role on the side of the fascist king for using it from like semi, rebelling against him, and like not really following orders I. Don't WanNa like. hocus goals. That's not like it's so much less compelling, so be doing that for most of. Mean spoiler alert like it's a viral game like you. You're not gonNA stay on the side of the I. Know Foot while for like. I agree like I. Mean Like I. Didn't super like Conquest, so it's not pushing me to play and I'd like to play the third one, which is where you choose your own fight at some point, but I feel like. I should try at least give conquest novice transfers. At like I really wish you just let the good guys have really compelling maps. Like if you'd like, that wouldn't have been too much to ask. So needed to provide incentive. I. Fought more felt i. mean the impression you get on a design level is that they thought birthright would be like more accessible game that like both that more. If you never picked up a firearm on gay before to give your Japan, you buy the gain that has the like retailing's of Japanese. You know tropes and characters and stuff like that, and so that's GonNa be more accessible, so you make that like the less difficult version, and then the like more Western inspired one. Can Be the harder one that you would buy after you buy. The more accessible birthright, one that I think is part of the design philosophy is that birthrights meant to be more accessible than conquest? Because of the trump space, it's playing. Again it I understand what they're trying to do. I don't think and apparently popular opinion is. It wasn't very effective I love going popular opinion I. Know that sharpens those back on the White House. But like I think popular opinions just right like they could of made one really really compelling game, and instead I think they made at least two games. Where neither of which totally? Yeah and this formula that Kinda come up with Dave refine and make better. Four three houses Your houses excellent and makes perfect. Is One of my top five games ever. I mean but the houses like is clearly in conversation with some of the choices they make in birthright conquest revelations. It's. I mean later done directly at points. It's just yet. They actually went out of their way made all re compelling. And they were like. A fire houses would be my favorite game. Ever I think if the first chapter were more different. Yeah. I, mean that's a fair criticism, but look I'll be honest with you. Three houses made one extremely compelling story, and then to pretty compelling stories or five and a half related. By the two stories I played and I think I would be compelled by the third as the like so. Golden deer is. A really really interesting to tell the churches story. And the Black Eagles is a really really compelling Eggert story and I think The Blue Lions is supposed to be the character driven.

"white" Discussed on The White Book
"Strength or or comparative badness or whatever right but like breeding tigers and selling them is kind of like one level of scale right and and it it hits onto some of that though most it really is on the interpersonal drama. But it raises these questions of much more intense malfeasance on each of these people's parts And really kind of only raises that question and just says hey by the way you think. They're bad will they might be really terrible and onto the next person. Let's talk about them. Yeah which is both kind of mind blowing to watch and sort of dissatisfying in the end. Now I'm just really filled with a lot of questions right now. It sounds like you've had more grounding in some of the Dif- different perspective on this Roy As some other coverage it covered some things or even just in tiger king as there have been some stuff. That's convinced you weather say Joe. Really did hire a hit on Carol whether Carol Really Murdered her millionaire husband in the nineties. Whether a doctor what Black what what blackmailing people and euthanizing tigers and burning them and Or Jazz maybe framing people. Well how about this? I mean I think that the basic facts of the story I think are that are presented in Joe in in the documentary. Probably true based on what I've read and like one of them like the one of the one of the big things that's actually very controversial Is You know this whole theory about whether or not Carol killed her husband or not. My wife that she did it. I think I agree with you on our side But she's still on her side but like if if that had been missed. If I've been proven she would be in jail traits. There's no like she hasn't been charged right. And so that's everything except for. Joe Is all alleged at this point. I think a alleged right so my working theory. What what makes the most sense based on the facts is that the peop- the other people involved in this story enabled the obsession that Joe had with Carol to the point in which he did do it but they they have this. They set him up but he still did it yet. He still did it like it was. They enabled him. They saw that. This was not bringing the car games. A leak in his life that his obsession with Carol was something that they could use to to set him up to get him to be like. You know what? Hey you could you. You've been talking for fifteen years about to kill this woman. Here's somebody who will kill her. And he went through with it and they then leveraged his willingness to act on this thing that he has been obsessed with and repeatedly threatened her on the Internet to the point in which he was blowing dolls that he had her face plastered on with with guns. Like it's one of the things that was really shocking to me About about it is just. It's just a reminder of just how much free speech for White people is pretty limitless White men because the things that that Joe did to care about instead about Carol Without any consequences was just extremely insane to me Anyway and so my thing would be. They're all guilty. Which is that Joe? Joe went through with it. But and you know maybe if he had not encountered Jeff and his friends he may have just stayed at the level of making youtube videos about threatening to murder her but He was willing to go through with it now. That let jeff in his associates. You know flipped him over to the feds and do a whole bunch of other stuff. That's involved in that. Basically take jobs livelihood away from him but that doesn't mean that he's innocent and it doesn't mean that at the end of the day he doesn't deserve consequences for his actions and one of the things that's kind of like left out in the documentary series. That's developed more in other reports about Joe did murder like Mur- like kill tigers unnecessarily And that was one of the many of the other charges that he was charged with And one of the reasons why he got so much jail time and it was weird that that was kind of like tack in at the end that he's accused of unnecessarily. I mean you could save murdering six of his tigers And it's and his own former employees in friends or basically like yeah. He did it he did that. So you know. Even within the context of Joe as an animal person he comes off at the end says it's really reprehensible as much sympathy for him because he's clearly been troubled person and you know growing up as a gay person in sixties and Seventies Oklahoma and North Texas is not going to be a very easy thing But he's at the end of the day just really reprehensible person who did a lot of really reprehensible things as entertains he was and then I mean it kind of gets washed over until Peretti Layton series and even then. It's almost blink and you miss it but his actual romantic Probably Romantic in quotes Relationships were Dark Cedar. He's a predator. I mean you clearly preyed on. Young Boys You know it's it's a messed up situation and upsetting really gets downplayed. You know I think to just double back and we should probably move on a little sugar hiker King. The thing that I found really frustrating. About the documentary ticket the end is how it tried to create false equivalents between all the actors in the documentary series at the end A minor theme that kind of flows through but kind of crescendo. And I'm like I. I read some reviews while watching it about that. And it's like I don't know if that's the case but at the end they kind of doubled down on it and basically said that all these people from Carroll to Joe to the the other breeders that are that are mentioned just all roughly the same kind of the same crop cloth and that just is not correct like whether or not you like some of the other people on this like even if you for example Carol being the Big One even if you think Carol might be opportunist or a little too obsessed with her own self image. She's nothing. What she does is nothing compared to a joe and his friends did both the Tigers other human beings and you know just just a jet just in general and I found that very frustrating at the end It just like that. False equivalency was sort of a note that they chose to end that they chose Don. I won't too far into that like you said we should probably drop tiger king here in a moment so my parting thought will just be man. I I want to know how the conversation with the producer or whoever went Between them and I'M NOT GONNA remember the names of any of Joe's husbands but The first one The one who barely has any teeth domes- you eat. He's not actually the first one. Joe's actual husband died of AIDS. Oh that's alternate actual not actually talked about okay. They don't touch on that at all. The first of the ones that we meet there we go But who like the conversation between the show runner? Whoever and him that was like here by the way we're GONNA need you to be shirtless Sitting in a recliner in the just like worst setting possible like every time that we show you for this interview. That'd be great. Sure okay. It's just kind of kind of throws me for a loop because it's obviously not his natural setting like this so much of it is footage of people doing their stuff around the various parks and sanctuaries and stuff but this is sitting there for an interview so it had to have been staged that way heared. Yeah it is weird okay. That's my last thought. Wow I'm never watching that. You can't like it doesn't sound like it's for me Oh so my weight. Was that a prosperous love. People like us the name of the show. I would say that I lean at the end of it more towards the slop than a prop but it was It was it was a worthwhile experience. It was it was fascinating. I think I will still give it a pro for being fairly compelling watching Reviewing I should say even if alive the content is kind of questionable berna moving on from whatever that was I got. I decided to place the Metro On the switch during break So I'm playing to at the first. One is a definite Which is considered one of the best in the Genre. Really good reason. It's amazingly gloom. Really difficult with like ramping difficulty. But like I don't really like the Games but it's so slow in the mood fit so well it's location that I find myself like Braun to actually completing circle parts. That are getting bored doing something else. Super High Prosper Holiday. If you have switch lease get this guy okay because I need to get a switch on the PC. And I think you can play it. I think it's on every system to spend. Google is grown to go for definitely on.

They've had the endpoint in mind and they could plan out when they wanted their season. Breaks and stuff.

"Charlie Dobson now. His name is misspelled spell. And I can't quite make out the words scrawled next to his name. The part that says who held the deed before Charlie. But it's got the citation where to find signed the deed itself so I go over to the wall of deed books. Turn to page five. Seventy five ooh Charlie Dobson the Y.. And Mvp our company the Zoo and Mississippi Valley Ali Railroad Company. He bought it from the railroad company. Three hundred twenty dollars in nineteen zero four. which situation? I guess that's not what I expected. Cass a small black farmer just one generation removed from slavery and he's buying land from an interstate corporation but there it is nineteen so for Charlie Dobson signs a contract to pay an Illinois based railroad company. Three hundred and twenty dollars over five years for forty acres of land. I I couldn't wait to share this with Vernita. Oh Wow all the time. I've thought that the land was given to them. The fact that is very significant. Okay because in nineteen four. My great grandparents purchase land. That's very significant because honestly it's just not not how we're taught the history of that era if we learn about everyday black people at all. They're portrayed as poor sharecroppers scratching out a life not as people buying winging land from large corporations which begs a couple of questions who were Charlie and Abby Dobson and how unique was this land deal. They found doc. I set the record straight on the whole question of the post civil war. Land giveaway I talk to historian Eric owner. I'm the author of the second founding. How Oh the civil war and reconstruction remade the constitution? And he's one of the world's leading historians on the era known as reconstruction which followed the civil war forty forty acres and a mule. That phrase reflects the fact that African Americans thought that with the end of slavery should come. They didn't use the word reparations but it would more like compensation for the Labor. They had done that was their idea of economic freedom to go along with this sort of legal freedom of the abolition of slavery the phrase itself Echoes An order issued by Union army general near the end of the war. So it comes from Sherman's order in January field fifteen in January eighteen sixty five. The civil war is still on although it's pretty clear it's coming toward an end. And his Gino's Sherman famously marches through Georgia taking confederate land thousands of enslaved slave people flee to safety behind his lines that becomes untenable. Sherman is not equipped to support thousands of starving people so he meets with a bunch of black community leaders. Who Tell him listen? We just need land and we will take care of ourselves. General Sherman figures. Great Problem Solved. He issues an order saying give each each person forty acres of all that land. I just seized in South Carolina and an estimated forty thousand newly freed people get what becomes known as Sherman Land But then Andrew Johnson comes in after Lincoln's assassinated a deep deep racist who had no interest in what the rights of blacks were going to be and Johnson takes it all away gives it back to the former slaveholders more than that he stops any real effort at federal land. Redistribution but in the end it didn't happen you might say the political liberal revolution went forward but the economic revolution stalled one slavery's abolished so no forty acres and a mule. But now. So here's Charlie and Eddie. Probably Children of formerly enslaved people making real estate deals with interstate corporations. How was he able to purchase point? I'm curious as to you know back. Then how's it. He even get that money to purchase land in nineteen four good question to begin figuring out Charleen addy's lives. I called up another historian. Guy Named John Willis who several years ago had the same kind of head scratching watching moment that I had when I saw Charles deed he wrote a book called forgotten time the Zoo Mississippi Delta after the civil war I came across awesome strange statistic in the census records and this book really was an effort to figure that out. I had two questions. Why was it in one thousand nine hundred the the two thirds of the farm owners and the Delta were black? And why did it change so dramatically that nobody's ever heard of all these black farmers not just farmers perform owners well so I have encountered one of those families. They it's a family that has the land that they bought ought still in their family. Today I give him the quick recap for Nita's grandmother inherited the land in the nineteen forties for Nita assumed. It came from forty acres and a mule until I found Charlie Dobson's nineteen o four land. Deal tell me a little bit more about what you know about the Dobson family. So I have traced it back to a guy named Charlie everything I oh come. From the census records which aren't totally clear but from what I can tell some time before the turn of the century Charlie and Eddie migrated to the Delta from North Carolina the appear to have been born in the eighteen seventies so again first generation born after emancipation. That means Charlie was about twenty years old old when they moved Andy was younger. I imagine them flush with the certainty of their youth packing up to trek some seven eight hundred miles trying to make a life somewhere and I wonder how that felt. I mean did it. Seem like an incredible risk to be a young black couple traversing. The South presumably without much money are Are Was it actually kind of exciting. Because hey what's there. To lose John Willis says whatever the vote they were actually quite typical of the time. I'm at the tail. End of the first mass migration of black Americans. A lot of people were moving around after slavery. More than three million people formerly enslaved looking for opportunity movement was the rule not the exception. We know that they're really three main sorts of places that ex slaves went after their freed. A lot of them went to the city just totally new life. Others went to establish plantation belts. Were they could work on farms the third-place slaves win and were places like the Delta places with undeveloped available land not long after he was born the Delta was still ninety percent wilderness and when I say wilderness I mean it's subject to overflow from the Mississippi. It's covered in tall forests. Have Hardwood trees. It's still got black bears and panthers roaming around and What's been going on throughout his life by the time he buys? The land is that black farmers have been moving in and working their way up from renting often to being able to own their land. And it's a weird situation. It's not like any other part of the south we know of These are farmers owning at one point. On average one hundred eighty acres at another point The average one hundred sixty acres these are sizeable plots of land. And this was the most fertile land known anywhere on the Earth. And if you were able to gain control of some of this land you had a good chance to be able to support yourself and maybe maybe buy more but still how in the hell did two thirds of this fertile land ended up in the hands of black owners like Charlie and Addie answer and I did not see this coming is East hacks policy. That's next.

"So what what you would come in down there. Yes right yes well. You came in a cone of Soda Military Road Right there by that tree. We're looking at a long empty collapsing. Frame remove them. How do you can see the remnants of a wide Verandah? That was likely the buildings most proud gesture. It's the house. The family got after the fire when Renita finally got her indoor bathroom it's surrounded by a thicket of trees and beyond that acres and acres of fields and did they farm on this land. My mother name they home. Just take everybody who grew up here on. This land have already left the state. So Albert's now the lands caretaker and he rented out to a white guy I to help keep the taxes paid. Elbert is a lifelong farmer himself. And just like Renita there's a mysticism to how he talks about. Land Ownership Kamanga Andrea. told me he lane. I'll Nail Neil did forget it gets it. I wondered about that and Phillips here you. We know what feud mood in New York if you kill them folks that you've got some land. Ruchiatna Edna you. I don't know why McKay Wheel Albert took the advice. He's got ninety acres of his own way raised thirteen children. So this all family. I've got a lot of community right here. Okay that's wonderful. That's a wonderful moving over. Its wife. Pearleen is ninety years old herself. The two of them have been married for more than seventy years. And you know I got a sense of why landownership the ship has meant so much in this family as I listen to them talk about their life together after he came out of service when I met in she met Albert while rushing at a military funeral this just after World War Two. She was bored so when she noticed this guy and his friends hanging around outside the church she hit him up but that we didn't know but we try to get to Albert. Had just gotten out of the military he'd been part of the first cohort sort of black men to serve in the Marines and says he acted the part to this day. He is a man who walks with ample confident down. These two are sitting in the front room of their farmhouse literally surrounded by photos of kids and grandkids and great grandkids kids posed and graduation gowns and military uniforms. There's a black Jesus portrait and the Obama family photo. I've seen on the walls of dozens of black Mike homes around the south. The room is like a shrine to black family pride. It is familiar but I gotta say listening to to ninety something year old black like people giggled about being in love. That's new for me. Probably for a lot of people. My grandfather's they died early grandmothers live to their nineties but their internal lives there indiscretions and guilty pleasures. They didn't share that kind of stuff with me. Stuff like the weight per lean was clearly excited by Albert Aubert's macho youthful temper a move career. Hey for but I mean you know. He didn't he didn't bother. Nobody could nine yards is he was just a product of the Marine Corps Marine Cole. Either fans in taught him that winning. Is Everything lesson that I came to realize has served him well as a black landowner in the Delta Zone and now Cohen I'd come out and fight and this is another thing that very few of us get to hear from our black elders. What it felt like to live? Jim Crows World the emotional scars. They accumulated while staying alive. The period Elbert n Pearleen reminiscing about these. These are the years after World War Two over was actually one of hundreds of thousands of black service members returning to their communities full of pride a little too much pride for White folks precarious era for black people full of countless little conflicts. That could turn deadly like the time Gobert his young son and and his father went into town and pass the white sheriff on the sidewalk and when he and Pearleen tell me this story they repeat the dehumanizing language white people used to throw at them so heads up it goes like this the sheriff pushed Albert son out of the way sand by me. Here more off off just so and so on street the Marine and Elbert was ready to fight back but his father grabbed him just in time to prevent an irrevocable a couple mistake. I didn't read none that night role in night. If it hadn't been mood dead I probably wouldn't really got my hand on. No you couldn't put your hand on White People They always laugh. They could tell allow you and send you to prison Q.. You do anything they wouldn't be done about it over you go find some kind of ways the all. No no no never did did didn't he couldn't. They would do nothing. But yes nossa you do. North to couldn't do nethon stay. Stay out of trouble right. They were right you always roll. Millions of black families decided not to deal with that. They packed packed up and left. But this family decided that rather than leave rather than go north or wherever else they would stay on their own land and use it as a shield field against the wild random power white people help. But where did they get the land like I said Albert Vedeno that lily inherited it but they they don't know what came before that so after visiting the land itself I went into town to start looking for an answer at the county courthouse and it was like the building itself what it means to understand. Understand the world in which this family lived built in one thousand nine hundred and it's a landmark site now a handsome if intimidating structure stately with tall white columns along the a front and a large inscription across the top obedience to the law is Liberty K.. Access or maps property records but these days black people behind the desk inside. I'm well how are you. Yeah so I am trying trying to look up some property records so the current deed is in the name of Lily. Lester L. L. E. S. T. E. R. Tax assessor finds Lilly's deed and it confirms the family stories. That lily got the land from her parents. Their names were Charlie and Addi Dobson and they did in fact own forty acres when they died in the nineteen forties. They gave their land to Lilly and her sister. But anything before for that. That's not in the electronic records so I go down the hall to the courthouse like bring all those books on this so right there. All those are deepal. You just pulled a bull there. These huge musty old books. Like something out of Harry Potter. The general index of Land Deeds Equipment County. Each one is like Tim. Feet high six inches thick worn leather binding. And basically I gotta look for either Charlier Addy Dobson's name and each book until I find the citation tation for their deed and then I can go look up the deed itself to finally see where they got the land. And if you WanNa copy of the D we can make you a copy okay. Okay well I got my work cut out so I cracked the first look number ten. Can I turn to the. It's nine alphabetical order. That sucks their group by letter just not in any particular order so I gotta look through all the days till I hit adoption Darby Arab Denim and Dr Now Dickie Davis now journal then eventually I started thinking. Maybe they're not any I mean. Maybe the family doesn't know nowhere. Charlie got this land because nobody knows because it's actually lost to history books here.

PODCASTS comes yes from Cairo right and the team behind the United States of anxiety they just launched their fourth season yesterday and one episode in. We already know it's going to be a great listen leading up the election as KYW's says how tell the story of the past shapes what we think about the future. We've done that work here. White lies and if you like what you've heard here we you think you're gonna like this season of the United States of anxiety. The series is about the unfinished business of American history. And Its grip on our future and they're starting point is reconstruction and it's legacy today. I'll say right ticket from here. I met a new friend Landfall heaver NITA. Hey are you. I'm woman named Vernita blocker. And the thing about Vernita is she grew up hundred. So I don't know if you've ever heard of this but you can make snow crane snow now ice cream and she told me all these rustic stories about stuff. She did as a kid in Mississippi know how they did it. Don't ask me I was a little girl by it. Tasted good Eh. You pay me to eat. Some ice cream. Made from snow fell from the sky anyplace I have eaten US know. Is it work. Yeah I mean my mom's pretty country herself and I spent a lot of time in the south so I can relate a little bananas Childhood in the Mississippi Delta this this is another level for me. She was raised by her grandparents. who were farmers mostly Kaden? Most of the time they planet Kaden. And that's what they grew on on land. That was the cash crowd which did make much cash so the rest kept them fed. My grandma always had a large garden and she also ahead hogs and she had chickens as well. They were beer resourceful in using everything that was on the land they will take right like the Ham of the hall and they would salt it down and that ham wasn't put in the refrigerator that ham was put in a wooden box and it was preserved preserve through this real coarse salt process and so that would be fresh meat for us to eat. You know for several must must and listen. This is the nineteen sixties in rural Mississippi. And I gotTA assume life was not easy for black folks there but Vernita. It gives me nothing but Rosie Memories. She even lasts about the time their house caught on fire. We're not sure hi- caught but it burke all the way to the ground so they bought an old house from a neighbor like a whole house move the whole thing to their farm and then renovated it themselves and that two guys was when we got up bathroom until the house burned. We used an outhouse talk too much. My family go have a too much information. So here's the deal Rita's family and the land. They raised her on tell a piece of the Mississippi Delta All two story that I've never really heard before I mean we know the Mississippi Delta Right. It's the birthplace of the blues. The place where black Americans did our usual thing turning pain into poetry. It's where the legendary Robert Johnson is said to have sold his soul to the devil at a highway junction. About twenty minutes of Rina's childhood farm. Back where muddy water sat on his porch and helped create the sound that would become rocking. And by the time Bernita was a little girl. It's where Fannie Lou Hamer was organizing freedom summer risking her life to try failing to bring multiracial democracy into the state of Mississippi first of all the nineteen sixty two eighteen of US travel back in my there is a rich but hard and grim history of black life in the Delta Vernita though she felt quite safe and secure sure because she was sheltered on that farm in her grandparents. Care for me. It was just a way of life I never thought I was poured until much later later in life I look back on and I was like we were really poor. We will it in how much because I felt like we didn't want for anything. We had clothing. We had shelter talk. We had transportation. I don't feel like I was deprived. Agile the land itself belonged to her grandmother. Lily Lester and Bernita describes lily as I guess exactly the kind of bad ass. She'd have to be as a black woman owning her own land in Jim. Jim Crows Mississippi. She was the type of person that was a go getter. She was like a business person. She believes taking care of business. She was very serious about that. So lily inherited the land from her own parents. For Nita's great grandparents it was forty acres and Lily taught her family to be fiercely. Proud of it for those of us who didn't grow up in a rural environment where land really meant something thing. What is the emotional attachment? You think both for your grandmother in yourself why that was such a big deal that you guys had had this land ownership you own your own land. That's something to be proud of. We were surrounded by people who did not own land. They lived on someone else land. They lived in someone else's house and it was just always drilled into me as long long as you have grafting your body to just hold onto the land. Don't ever sell it. But you know when I asked for Nita how her family got ownership of the land in the first first place she said this really unexpected thing. The land came about when the government gave lack families forty acres and a meal bill but as far as when it took place I would like to know more about that forty acres and a mule. You have surely heard this phrase if nothing else is the name of Spike Lee's production company. It's an idea that began circulating right after the civil war ended that freed slaves as were promised forty acres annual but it is really incredibly unlikely that this is the source of lilies land. Very few people received that promise and even fewer actually got the land when Vernita told me that this was her understanding. I got really curious. I went to Mississippi Zippy to learn where it came from and I found a story about an old fundamental fight in American politics one that remains at the center of the current political debate. We do not agree on who owns this country's staggering wealth. Those giant corporations like Chevron Amazon who paid nothing in taxes we can have them pay to its rightful owners. How does it happen that when the top one percent owns more wealth than the bottom ninety two percent half a million? The people are sleeping out on the streets tonight. Donald Trump has fostered under style. Jeff for whites only prosperity. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer but everybody on the political stage left right and center ordinary middle class. Americans Bill Maher is asking in some form how we can most fairly distribute the incredible resources of the United States. That is a question that dates all the way back to the aftermath of the civil war and for at least one promising moment in those postwar years. It's a question. The country actually answered for itself for Nita's family stepped into that moment and somehow they held their ground where very few others could the landscape of the Mississippi. That'd be Delta is vast miles and miles of crop fields roll out to the horizon experiences. Broken up only by thickets of trees that here and there Markov property lines long stretches of unpaved roads criss cross those fields on what seems like hard unforgiving ground but actually water lurks everywhere standing in swampy pools under those treeline seeping into ravines dug around the cotton atten fields. The delta is fertile. been coming down the tracks start my trip here by going to see renewed his family land Albert. Lester is my guide.

You know since second launched. Anyway I agree. I mean it's hard to predict but I I have to say that I think it would would. In general be a much more favourable across the board think it would have had a very large and a trickle down effect.

No one even knows what does but like I mean you gotTa have like those cards that are like you mentioned relevant with great art to have like an organized play kits and stuff like that to make people want to attend these events and try to chase after these. Promos and win But no one was wanting that someone in court no one mean. I think I've got it somewhere here just to try and be a complete list. But that's never never actually going to happen actually complete. That's never going to happen. Not with not with all the house specific stuff from then on. I'm Toria like that idea. But if you're playing a house that you don't normally play and hang these cards on there so rare like the aftermarket is crazy expensive. Yeah I'm torn. I mean it definitely makes some excitement to kind of spread the prizes out that way And give more people a reason to Kinda keep fighting like all the way through Even if they're not going to win the top prize kind of thing. It foster some house loyalty and things like that. It just kind of sucks for the complete EST collector that were not getting those without Without paying Prateep Penny. And that's why I liked. I think they started a Gen con last year. Was I wasn't up getting like top eight at Gen con or Pop. Sixteen one of the two but like I got to a point where they were giving me like full play sets of like some of the cards so even though it wasn't like by factional choice. I got to a point in the placement. And we're like oh here's like all the reducers like here you go you get like a complete place at of all those. And here's like all their lands that we had here's complete place although so So that was nice where it was like rewarding. You As cards as you long do that. When I went in on the prior year I didn't even get a full place of Catlin starts as Vega have two more. 'cause I only got one and they just told me now con coming up. Like two of these promos. Sorry sorry we have a fifteen hundred of these. Refer exclusively foreleg handouts. Sorry that you tournament just do you still tyler. I will have to get some at some point..
