"Biden Lee inside. Um and I and maybe it's a wrecking. I'm gonna look at more, but I I think it is. I don't know that it's a repudiation of Trump per se a cz much as I think there is an embrace by White America and it's nostalgia. That, you know, I know you just kind of pooh poohed some of the exit polls. But if I'm really surprised at the high numbers of Ah white college graduates that it embraced Um, And then they're just some inexplicable voting patterns like the number of Americans that are voting for Trump, um, and the number of other minority groups that are voting for Trump. He is able to transcend. You know, like people are literally voting against, but The Democrats would think are their soul or their number. They wantto put them into boxes. I guess lesson stop putting people in the boxes, man, and I know that that sounds like easy, but You know, we've got to take the Latinos box and, like birds sat up because Florida Cuban Americans are like nothing like you know, Arizona Hispanics. There's nothing like that, and we put all of that into a box of this 20% of the electorate. And it is so not monolithic, like I think it's still safe, although maybe not appropriate to put Thean trist of Black American in a kind of monolithic block, although We didn't see the Trump will probably end up with the highest percentage support of black men in a generation. But man, it's just such a mistake to keep putting. What we consider Latinos in the Spanish into a box. And and with that a lot of other groups like There's a thing and like Asian Americans, we think that they're going to be liberal because they skew higher education, but they actually have a greater sense of from this is Exit polling, not me. They don't like the idea of other interest groups coming in and breaking up the meritocracy that they have so been a part of the True. They traditionally are working really hard to get really good at small business and an education and they don't like seeing encroaching on that which is part of the Like a socialist, You know it quality argument that's bean sprout from the left. So it's just it's craft to put them in this botany box. Like, Oh, all Asian Americans going Vote Democrat. They're not No, and there are two things that I think, really shake things up and make it difficulty and making a mistake to put all of these groups into boxes. One is economics. I know there are people who will put a lot of nonsense aside. If it means that, you know, they might have a chance at thriving with whether it's their business, their job, Whatever Okay again, self interest coming first, and Ah, lot of these groups are bit more culturally conservative. They're the progressive movement wants to give them credit for and I think the culture wars have played a big role in turning some of these groups off. It's just too much, and that's why I think when all the dust settles and you have a presidency. Being led by Joe Biden. And you probably have a Republican small majority in the Senate and Democrats with small majority in the House. I think the country is going to look at that and say OK, there are checks everything a little calmer. Now, let's get something done, and that's going to be The interesting thing to watch, I think in 2021. Is it going to be just do or die Power politics or will Washington have gotten the message and Do they understand that Americans? They don't want the extremes of either side, but they do need some problems solved that are affecting their lives. I mean, you're so right. And you have to kind of look at the long arc of this entire presidential race and say yes, I can remember. Joe Biden is probably the most pragmatic. All of the candidates that you know, maybe you're Amy quote Bitch are I don't know, but you know, when you started off with a big field, he was one who was like there's no way that Democratic left is going to elect You know Joe Biden here? It's like, you know, I tweeted out the other day, Democratic President, Republican Senate Democratic House were, you know, conservative Court, you know, Republican Florida government. This is Divided government at its best and worst. I think it's that it's best. I think that that kind of government could get infrastructure bill done. I think it could solve the covert crisis keep us out of them in 10 Goldman You know, I think people are we're going to go through a little bit of Ah, the death throes of the from President Trump's presidency. It's going to be a little bumpy Another week or so. On then we're going to get to Thanksgiving and people going to like. That is, if you were going to be able to breathe easier by Thanksgiving, we're gonna breathe easy here. I'm joined by Peter shorts, publisher of Florida Politics, You can follow him on Twitter at Peter Schorsch F. Ell the Florida Democrats. We've We've talked a lot about Florida Republicans and I don't know how much There is left to say, I want to talk to Anthony Fettucini Republican strategist about about some of the strategy that went into their big 2020 election wins. But the fact is Florida Republicans. They've got it together. They've done a fantastic job. They took advantage of a situation where Democrats basically gave them the state during the pandemic and let them go knock on doors uncontested in all of that, But for Florida Democrats, I talked to representative S Kamani last week and we're Did they go from here to the younger generation s Kamani freed? All of them. Do they have the power and the backing to kind of take this thing over or is there going to be a struggle for power among Democrats in the state? I don't know A struggle for power. Um, you know, the idea, unfortunately, will be that they're gonna have to elect a new party chair believe unlike December something like that. I think they need to hash it out a little bit longer than that. I think they need to, you know. When when there's AH blood behalf like there is Um, last Tuesday, it's not hard to figure out what had happened. I mean, I think that that kind of clear, so I'm hoping that they don't get locked into a new party chair. One way or the other. A reaction to Tuesday and they think more about what they need for 2022. I don't know that they necessarily know that is yet you know, Representativescommittee does come from the You know, the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. I think she definitely has a seat at the table, but I don't know if she means her. Her policy positions are the positions that were rejected outright last Tuesday, whereas more power Probably Nicky freed Jason Pizzo, you know, but you know that struggle crashes, They say it was a choice between Republican Republican light. We're going to lose. Um I think this is something you have been gone 100 times to talk. I think that economic populism message is so right. I think that that's why John Morgan You know, Piss off Nicky freed last week. I think why there's some disappointment about not more democratic support for the successful amendment to campaign. You know, I don't I don't know why the Democrats just don't put together an entire economic populism message and put the defunding police and climate change.

Suddenly realizing that there's something they been missing here is a chance for this government.

But to all institutions in our society, I feel ah riel. Need for us to act before this window closes. To that end, Constantine announcing a series of changes and new programs, investments to make significant racial justice reforms. I'm proposing to reallocate $4.6 million in marijuana tax revenues. I'm the King County Sheriff's Office and transfer those monies to community based programs. Since the legalization of marijuana, King County has received a portion of the retail excise tax. And directed that money law enforcement. It's time to shift. Those resource is to other uses that directly benefit communities. And I'm proposing spending $2.8 million to help people vacate previous marijuana convictions, convictions that make it harder to get employment and housing. It is a fact that black communities have historically and still currently been disproportionately harmed by our nation's bore on drugs, and this begins to undo some of that harp and a novel program.

Cardi B SLAMS Candace Owens After She Calls Her an 'Illiterate Rapper'
"It's blowing up right now. So this is candace owens versus Cardi B. and not just doing this to be silly I. Did they actually got into something kinda substantive here it started when. Canvas was on Ben Shapiro's Sunday special. Let's take look the clip. I completely agree with your assessment about Cardi B. It is one of the biggest insult if Black Americans are not insulted by the fact that Joe Biden who has been hiding in his basement you know for the entire year maiden appear to come up because he was going to do an interview with Cardi B.. We we have nothing better to offer. I. Mean this be tend to. Donald Trump saying I'm going to give no. Interviews, but he came up and he decided to give an interview to Justin Bieber right I mean I wish I actually just be I'm sorry. I know you are a Christian Man I. Don't want to put you in the same boat as Cardi B. but it it would be absurd white America would go what what is this why? Why are you being interviewed by Justin Bieber and it's because you're pandering right? You're pandering you look at Cardi's instagram easy. She has millions of followers and you think. Okay. This is an illiterate person, and if I if I appeal to this a person and she does a group like she literally did in the middle of this interview, they think she's cool. She's hip just by sitting here and and taking this interview walking will vote for me. It's basically saying black people you are stupid. You are dumb and you're so foolish I mean do you think what if she just said in the middle of the interview Joe Biden? Can you name one Cardi B. Album? Not Jimmy favor just one Cardi B. Lyric. He couldn't do it. Of course he's not because he's being handled and they're saying black people like this person this is what they're into, and so here you go talk to her. Okay. So Cardi, b. e. then heard what candy said and she hit back she did a couple of videos I think four videos on instagram shows on camera, but you could hear her talking in the exact quote that she said she's talking about. Canvas she says, she has an identity crisis just because she is black doesn't mean she gives a F- about blacks and you can hear also saying the candidates owns husband George. as part of a group that she like into an upper-class kkk of the UK now first off. I was at Atkinson in Georgia's wedding George a great guy they are a fantastic couple. The wedding was one of the most spectacular weddings I've ever been to and it was just filled. With love and there were black people and white people and there were straight people and gay people and there were Republicans and Democrats, it was it was a truly just a just an absolutely wonderful wedding with with a meeting of Families George comes from an upper class family in the UK. Candice comes from Philly from mostly lower middle class family and that everybody was just dancing and having a great time. So this nonsense from Cardi, B. But anyway, that's what her. Take on what candy said was, and then you know candidates. So she's not just going to sit there and take it. So campus followed up with a couple tweets and I'm going to read to you she said Malcolm X. warned us years ago about the puppetry of interviews like Cardi B. and Joe Biden, he always spoke out against the White Liberal game of using entertainers pawns. This isn't really about you Cardi B. This is about black America Waking Up to Democrat racism. She went on and another tweet to say never listened to a person that has private security but once the public police defended never listened to a millionaire that made it here in America but trashes our country. These Hollywood idols are frauds leading sheep down paths they never took when they discovered success. So so candidates makes what I think are pretty cogent salient points and Cardi B. Then jumps back in. Cardi visas well, paying taxes is something that as much as I hate, it's a reality I will always have to pay but I rather might tax money go to free education than police funding use my money on something useful your president us our tax money to fund is empty camp in ruts. So trump uses his campaign a. Uses the tax money to fund his campaign is that is that right? Well, can't jump back in and said one your tax dollars or ready to go already go to free education. Jesus. That is true to know campaign uses tax dollars for funding. That is illegal that is also true and three defunding police initiatives has led to two hundred percent increases in black men getting shot in inner cities stop supporting black people dying.
Armed and Dangerous: America's New Law and Order
"Number has the phrase law and order is invoked by a president come to mean. So clearly, it's opposite illegality and disorder starting with the first illegality like. Twice on Wednesday Donald Trump encouraged his north Carolina followers to cast two ballots one by mail and one in person it in early and then go and vote. At of it's not tabulated you vote and the vote is GonNa Count You can't let them take you vote away. These people are playing dirty politics. In some states you can ask for your mail in ballot to be invalidated but intentionally voting twice is fraud nfl any in most states, the president defended seventeen year old kyle written house who traveled with an assault rifle from his Illinois home to Kenosha. Wisconsin to enforce law and order, and now stands charged with six criminal counts including first degree, intentional homicide, first degree, reckless homicide, recklessly endangering safety and possession of a dangerous weapon is a minor. He shot to protesters to death and wounded a third but to trump, he is the victim he was trying to get away from them. I guess looks like any fell and then they very violently attacked him. And it was something that we're looking at right now and it's under investigation but I guess he was in very big trouble he would have been. He probably would have been killed this but one week after his Republican convention showcased accused felons mark and Patty mccloskey who brandished guns at peaceful protesters in front of their saint, Louis home and who are now official. GOP. Spoke gunman for the false narrative of White America under siege, they're not satisfied with. Spreading chaos and violence into our communities they want to abolish the suburbs altogether by ending single family homes zoning this forced rezoning would bring crime lawlessness and low quality apartments and now thriving suburban neighborhoods lie after lie after lie from the husband and wife rich lawyer militia from the trump campaign and from the Hague factory of Fox News when the writers come for your town. And they're coming. We'll biden and his team enough to stop them. And the answer is clearly no these are people are now crossing state lines clearly, and this is being organized using the Internet they will burn down your cities and tell you you did it. And if you don't accept that judgment, maybe they'll send them to your house the same race baiting law and order rhetoric whistled by Richard Nixon and Ronald. Reagan now literally weaponized. Let's just put aside lethal pandemic denial in paranoid Cunanan fantasies at least for a second and considered trump's warnings of the quote dark shadows and deep state moles controlling Joe. Biden. Those thugs clad in black on airplanes bound to destroy us. There are people that are on the streets. There are people that are controlling the streets. We had somebody getting plane from a certain city this weekend, an end, the plane it was almost completely loaded with with thugs wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms with gear and this and that their. Plan whereas the. I'll tell you sometimes, but it's under investigation. They have scary year even have menacing lunch people coming over with bags of so big bags of and they laid on the ground the anarchist's take that they start throwing it at our cops that our police. and. If it hits you, that's worse than a breakfast. It's got force soup assaults on police. He says every one of whom deserve unwavering support even after the use of deadly force against so many black men and women in this greatest of nations excluding, of course, the anarchic tarts defend their actions against fake news. He says so quick to smear cops for letting their nerves get the best of luck they choke just like in a golf tournament they miss a three foot comparing it to golf because he of course, that's what I'm saying people. Chip I. DO think that there appears to be a phenomenon in the country where African Americans feel that they're treated when they're stopped by police week widely. As suspects before they're treated as citizens. I don't think that that necessarily reflect some. Deep, seated Racism in in police departments or in most police officers meanwhile, Bill Bar, the nation's keep law enforcer shrugs at the notion that all too frequent lethal force against black people signifies systemic racism. He also mischaracterizes details of Jacob Blake's arrest on sexual assault charges caught on video that left him with seven bullets in the back courtesy of Canossa policemen from the Jacob case, he was in the midst of committing a felony and he was armed. No though police later reported finding a knife in the car, Blake was surrounded by police walking slowly and unarmed when he was shot. which is where black lives matters comes from, which is why there are protests nationwide, which is why trump is trying to portray.

Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says
"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented. This should be a very big day in Dallas. We will talk about it and why and then Lebron and other NBA players have until Wednesday to decide whether or not they're going to play. What should we expect? Woge will answer that question as we continue this out. GET THEM ON ESPN. GEICO. GETS YOU ACCESS TO LICENSED AGENTS? Twenty four

"Right, right and maybe that Lee in on that is are the Soom is probably a good thing for Joe Biden right. I mean based on his strategy which has always been presenting himself as a figure to heal the nation now that racist so center I mean it's not a coincidence that he started his campaign his first day, campaign message was centered around Charlottesville. And and the president's response to that, and this actually dovetails. Base I mean in the campaign has been trying to make up till with this moment to. His message. Very much fits with that same moment you number. The president's AIDS have sort of quietly compared. This moment for trump to Charlottesville And to your point, also about white liberals and getting more upset. The Black People I.

Medical School Yearbook with a man in black face that he denied was him. But it, it was back and forth. Bobbitt, what was so interesting, is basically the entire political establishment called on him to resign. And the polling in the state should that black voters still overwhelmingly supported him and it was because it wasn't real. They're like. So, you're telling me a southern guy and loss in like nineteen. eighty-one black-faced Homing Party shocker like right, and also it also there was another guy that those a guy in black face on the in the bigger the had to take occasional at all. That's right TRAE. So. You have to a two strikes in that picture, and that was shocking for white people. I think. To your point in like black people were like. Yeah, he's Virginia. But you know what I mean like. You see this that you guys still have like statue Robert. E Lee everywhere. Right exactly and so I think that all of this is going to play out in a way that I think none of us know I think. Something that political reports have a hard time saying. Is that I. Don't know and I feel like we don't. I feel like all of this. Could this end could cut all this this heat an excitement over this be over in a couple of weeks. Maybe is it going to keep going? And is it going to heighten maybe and you know how would affect you know white suburban women voters who gave Democrats the House and twenty eighteen right? Like how? How do they view this and so? I think the conversation about race as a referendum or be or or twenty twenty, being a referendum on race relations in this country is going to be something. WE'RE GONNA Cabinet Keep Watch. And to your point, it just is so unprecedented because white politicians report Republicans and Democrats alike. If you're a white politician, you don't like talking about race. It's just like an unwritten rule because you don't WanNa you don't want to alienate. Really the reason and so they. Both sides take great pains. In order to avoid talking about it, but what the trump era has done is made it impossible right right I can talk to you about this all day long Alex but. I'm going to let you go and do some work. Get on your Peleton that you have back there. Palatine it's not. Okay three hundred dollar Amazon. This big. Danny, my bosses. But I don't have enough money for Peleton. Same also say that yeah so. Give me a raise and by. All right Alex. thanks for being here then Eugene. Here are a few other things I've been watching this week after weeks of back and forth the Republican National Committee says it has chosen Jacksonville Florida to host a series of the RNC keynote events in August that includes president trump's primetime speech to accept the GOP nomination. Also. Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff has won the nomination to take on Republican Senator David Perdue in Georgia this November. The race was called late, Wednesday after Tuesday's primary, which was marred by lines as long as seven hours in major issues with in person voting, especially in the Atlanta area, and especially in black and Brown areas, and lastly Nascar on Wednesday said it is banning the display of the confederate flag at all Vincent Properties of auto racing giant.

"white america" Discussed on POLITICO's Nerdcast
"There, there was a lot of integration. There was a lot it was really hard, but then you know we won the State Championship and everything. and. I think Because of sort of this denial I think a lot of white liberals minds they're. They're almost gone the other way where they're dealing some embarrassment and some some shame and to your point like your question. Where how is this going to affect the election well? Biden is basically banking on the fact that trump's appeals to white voters that any politics of law and order about you don't kneel and protest the flag that you know George Floyd, which is something that trump retweeted someone saying wasn't a good person, and then this is not really a part of a a larger systemic issue. In this country that it was a tragic isolated instance that that sort of incendiary rhetoric will end up sort of shaming enough or turning off enough white voters who will then be appealed to this this Biden message of healing, the country of. It's Ok that you didn't think you racist before by that. You recognize it in yourself now. Even Biden himself allows two weeks compellingly as talked about how he he didn't. He underestimated racism, so we sort of giving a lot of white voters permission to Knin, their own ignorance is and whether or not it won't work. You know who knows twenty sixteen. You could argue. A Hillary Clinton did that she was making these same arguments, and it didn't work, but the polling would suggest that we might be in a different moment. Like it feels different like I think of. The last three weeks the messages that I've seen. And received from people surprisingly people that I never thought would. Say the things they're saying about race and race relations in this country like we haven't had and I'm sure somebody's going to bring up some moment where they like they did, but I don't think we've ever had such a coordinated nationwide effort to bring these things to people's attention, and it starts with black lives. Matter Movement right like it started with these young. Largely at the very beginning, especially black kids who were saying? Enough is enough right and. I remember my sister who is a community organizer with black lives. Matter Movement, in La, said recently she remembers being called a terrorist when this movement for started, and just like the change in that in such little time like what what what we're starting to see him by this moment I think feels differently is that the change comes with the people who are at the top, and when you talk about race and race relations that comes down to white people, realizing that something's wrong and then wanting to change something, right? Yeah I mean. I think study of the nineteen sixties. mlk was doing down. The south part of his entire strategy was to raise white consciousness to raise awareness of what was going on with the white power structure, and making it sort of undeniable any any longer, or at least unplayable, and so you. If you were a black person in this country, you are minority, but. The power structure of this country, the government that makes the laws that controls some as sends. You're even more minority if you're there because it is still largely white based so if you and I think that we have twenty black senators right now, we exactly black senators. Yeah, we've only had one. Black person in all of history serve both the House and the Senate. and. That's Tim. Scott WHO's currently Republican senator from South Carolina Right now first person ever, so you know if you want change activists. Do you need to convince the people at the top? And that's why as you were saying this moment you look at the crowds. These are not just black men protesting. You are seeing a lot of a lot of white people protesting to some these you're seeing multiple protests in Utah and West Virginia and small towns of all white people protesting that black lives matter so to your point. I think that's why some of this some different I'd be curious. Just, What some of the reaction that you've gone with your friends and what you've been telling some of your white friends who've been reaching out. Yeah I saw. This tweet recently have started to share with them. Because I think this is a time in which I have never seen like the majority, the vast majority of my white friends dealing with this they they have dealt with this in a way that I've never seen a talked about it more and they're educating themselves in this different way. Know the books that have been sold out the most books like how to be an anti-racist and so you want to talk about race, right? Into what I've been sharing with them. As this tweet thread, a black woman that basically gave them. Like hey people. I know this is kind of shocking for you guys. You've never done this. Black people have been deliberation with race in this whole time, so. Check on shore, but like check on yourself to. Try to figure out and so that's what I've been sharing with them as like this, these conversations are so damn hard right and they should be like people should feel uncomfortable, and you should have to think about the things that you've said in done. That have have been a part of this right. So I think that is what I keep trying to show them like I do with this all the time I have dealt with this for thirty one years of my life, right and so. Now that white people are dealing with it. There has to be you know. Keep doing it and it's going to be uncomfortable. I think if you give permit people permission to be uncomfortable. which I think is kind of what Biden's doing right like a gives them. He's giving white people like an okay to be like. Oh, definitely messed that up at some point and I think that that seems like he thinks that's going to be helping. I think activists would say that's probably helpful to to change people's minds. Your Biden himself has actually very publicly made some pause in this area when the first day that he ran for president in two thousand seven, he was asked about Obama running and he was like. Oh, it's so great for the first time ever you had the like a clean articulate black man running for president, and he ended having to call Obama and apologized, so he's he's very much in there I mean to your point mean. And I think like you're a lot of white people. The reason why they're. They're sort of nervous about talking about this is that they're scared of being labeled racists I mean I'm I mean you know just speaking from my own personal experience, you know I grew up in a Mormon family. The Mormon church serve infamously didn't allow blacks to become full members in the church until nineteen seventy eight, and so my congregation was very very white, and I loved them like a largely white suburbia. My public high school was in La County technically, but it was. I think eighty percent white eighty five percent it was. And I went to college, and like a good portion of my friends were white know it was like on the water polo team, which is like the whitest for you could shoes. And it's pretty up there. It's. Up there, maybe Paulo or something. Like Horse Polo might be a little while..

Dying of whiteness during the coronavirus pandemic
"I'm Jonathan Kaye part. Welcome to Cape Up. Jonathan Metzler back sooner than I expected because of the Corona virus pandemic in his book dying of Whiteness. How the politics of racial resentment is killing. America's heartland Nestle the director of Vanderbilt University Center for medicine. Health and society put a human face on the opposition to many policies that would save lives and livelihood a warning of the lengths to which the white working class voters could either have underlying racism or be manipulated to vote in support of wealthy donors corporations but against their own life stance. And it's just been on steroids since this pandemic started. Listen to mental. Explain why those anti stay at home protests in state capitals Egged on by the president that historical pattern and why the politics racial resentment is a deflection. That works right now. Jonathan Metzel. Thank you very much for coming back to the PODCAST. It's great to be back. I you were just on the podcast a couple of months ago and I try not to go back to Previous guests sooner than say six months but the situation that we're in right now with the with covert nineteen sort of demanded that you come back. We had on Reverend William Barber talking about the racial disparities that we've now been forced to reckon with with the corona virus. And you sent me a message. Reminding me that everything that you wrote about in Europe antastic book dying of Whiteness is playing out in this corona virus and the covert nineteen pandemic. Talk about that well. The book I wrote Diana Whiteness was was really. I mean I who knew at the time but what I was talking about in. That book was about the ways in which there were kind of undercurrents of white racial resentment that shaped Attitudes among politicians and certain white voters particularly in mid in America. That am caused them to what you would think. Vote against their own biological self interests and so the story. I told him that book was a story. About how for example and working class and lower income white voters rejected the affordable. Care Act. Which would have helped them a lot because they thought that immigrants and minorities were gaming the system and I looked at The rise of guns as symbols of kind of white self protection. And you know that was. That was a a book that I thought was kind of how to beginning a middle and an end it was kind of a warning of the lengths to which when white working class voters could either have underlying racism or be manipulated to vote in support of wealthy donors in corporations but against their own life stance. And it's just been on steroids since this pandemic started. I mean everything from in you know. It seems like the best possible for many red states would be to expand Medicaid if people health and transferred this moment of dire need and you would think people would be rallying to get Medicaid. It would help them. Not just medically would help them. Financially not incur bankruptcies pay less for medications but instead trump has been actively actively not expanding Medicaid and and people have been supporting him and the same thing with guns are the the gun story as is eight hundred percent rise in gun sales in some states in in in conjunction with this idea And and so kind of across the board this idea and and of course brought to bear most recently by these protests are across across many red states where people are literally out there saying and we we want to support trump even if it costs us in our family members and our communities days and months and years of our lives and and the racial currents are just. I mean just absolutely unavoidable. Okay so let's let's start with the with those protests because as I watched the video coming from Lansing Michigan and other places and people is openly. Define what we all knew when they were protesting to be true that the corona virus is spread. If you are not socially distancing if you're not wearing a mask if you're shaking hands if you have any kind of physical contact and these votes were acting in total defiance of everything of everything we know up the is it. Are they being irrational in what they're doing or are they being rational in that support for Donald Trump and resentment of and racial resentment are enough for them to ignore science? Well I think there are a couple of things that are important to keep in mind about this process. I just always make clear when I talk about them. That those protests are not all all white Americans. They're not all trump supporters. That's a kind of vote very vocal very threatening fringe group. That has gotten a lot of validation from from trump and a lot of funding from the Devos family and other places and so in a way. Because we're all stuck at home. It's hard to see that there are a lot of people in red states who are terrified of what those protests represent Democrats and Republicans and so first of all. I think it's unfortunate just given the way we're all many of us at at home right now and it looks like that's every Republican out there and that's not the case that being said I try to avoid saying that anything is irrational You know I think would my research. I came to realize that there are there are deep and ideology said that makes sense to people and I think this idea of government. Overreach this idea that Social PROGRAMS ARE GONNA benefit immigrants and minorities and and at the expense of of white people. do these ideas are very very ingrained and I think that also when you when you combine that with a moment of real despair this I this moment of you know not just a more the risk of mortality but also this fear of you know real real economic trauma that people back on their deepest their deepest fears. We've seen that you know the rise of Nazi Germany on down that people when they're who've been there the most desperate it's not like they become the most centrist They they become the most terrified. And so it. At a moment like this people fall back on extreme ideologies. It's not like everybody's GonNa come to the middle and I think trump has been very artful at manipulating those anxieties and shifting blame race. That I think are very dangerous but it's not I. It's not irrational. If it's based in a particular reading of reality and and also Lib reality for a lot of people you know one of the big stories to come out of out of the corona virus coverage is the the health disparities disparities in impact that overwhelmingly the victims of Corona virus have been Americans and other people of color particularly African Americans. What role do you think that plays in the mindset of people who might be looking in saying you know that's affecting them and so therefore I don't need to be concerned about this? Well I think certainly that's been framing an edge of course true right in other words. Many of the people who died in this early phase are emigrants of members of minority groups. People who have to either have to go to work In in conditions are live in areas. Where there's a lot of density I certainly think that that led to a feeling of kind of white and bits ability especially in the people. I've been interviewing people in this idea that oh no. This won't be because this is kind of black and Brown problem. I certainly think fueled part of the feeling of invincibility surrounding mess But it'll be interesting to see. I mean I think there are two caveats that narrative of I is that I guarantee you. A lot of these deaths in rural white America are being under reported. Just because there's not great data gathering and so I do think there's a lot of despair in in rural areas that we're not hearing about and and I think the other point is because of these protests and particularly when these red states start opening up if if they do which seems insane. We're GONNA see a lot of of working class white very sick and dying and so it'll be interesting to see what happens to that narrative when it really starts to hit home for people

"All the time all the time. Although the level of stress is and that is that is corporate that is blue collar that has educated uneducated that is living in the suburbs living in the city. Like it doesn't go away. It may change what it looks like. But you're still concerned about survival and what could happen. Some I look at half. You're absolutely right. What could have happened? What could have over that brother at the at a job making you know six or seven figures? Is this yet. It's going to be him if someone's GonNa get fire. It's going to be him that y'all know there's only one. There's only that one brother Rice the token you already watch as so. They're worried all alike. So what do we do good? So what what would be if you if you could give advice to a young mother out there raising a son today what would you? What would be your advice to? First of all love him where he is and like from like. Don't be afraid to love him because they need that just as much. If not more as they need the grooming they needed they needed more than anybody else. I think a black is more love than -solutely absent and I didn't give my son in so have you talked about it to him now. Have you apologized to him? Oh girl have I over and over. Many of us have haven't received those pilots because they had to because as Quantity as a mother now. And he's you know he's an adult man now. In hindsight I I realized you know the things that I should have done differently. So yeah I have gone to him and said Hey. When I did this. That was wrong. I should not have disciplined you that way. When I said that I shouldn't have said that. Please forgive and what is? He says he looks at me. He cries he hugs me. Oh this situation should have been have also does appear out there first and foremost love born your son Love. Because he needs to 'em you know what I've noticed. What my son. Even as an adult is that he leaves for my approval. Yes he just wants me to be proud of him. That's what he wants. And so we need as black mothers. We need to get into the habit of of telling our Sunday not children in general but especially at I love you. I'm proud of you even win. You know even a shortcoming. I love crowded you and don't get into the habit of always focusing on everything that he should be doing. Just honor what he is doing Kerr convert. Yeah so Um your softness show him Lau anyhow? Almost afraid to still Mucho Macho You know why because you know I didn't even it's like you said it's a survival game or honest with you. I'm just now discovering my softness I mean I'm becoming software there the and I and I think he rewired the sweet grant. Black Mamas because I think black people when your net survival mode and trying to make some things happen trying to make a dollar out of fifteen cents trying to keep people out of the out of the cemetery you hard and you're in that survival mode but when you get older you're allowed to dislike you know said some of that and so yeah I. I wasn't raised to be solved. I was raised to just keep on keeping on it. So it's not just a black male thing. I think it's a black thing and we're learning how to deal with our motions and be soft with one another as I'd just Like for me. I had to finally come to the realization for my son as relates to my son. Is that my role as his mother is to help him. Develop his skills and discoveries My role is not to be his dad. Because I quit for Dan. Monroe is not even have to teach him how to be a main is to teach him how to be unit And all of that all the other things come up under that if I can help him develop his skills and discover his strength being a man would come naturally for him. Utterly how yeah. We ended right there. 'cause that's that's that's that's it but we talk about this again. I gotTa go have me. I gotta go ahead and your drink honey. 'cause that that's it you have you have touch my heart and a lot of people's hearts and I think that I think hopefully that somebody will just really listen. Thank you so much my sister. Thank you for having me Donald. We'll talk again all right bye bye..

"It but it was again so by. It's do or die so can we just admit that but no they? They won't and I think people would just admit things like in just say I'm sorry like how the Holocaust who handled. I'm sorry at acknowledgment. And apology is so powerful. So healing but because in America. There's such a hesitation to do that. That doesn't happen. So you know when you talk about You know raising our boys. Well our children generally one of the things I know I try to do with my son. They are aware of the history of their people. As I think that it could strengthen them I told my boys when I got back from Ghana. I said I'm you guys are superhuman. And they were laughing. I said no understand that. When Africans were enslaved they chose the prying the best the strongest right that deco them built the country and I said and then most of those people died right and the ones who even survived Dean in the dungeons they were just mighty because they were living in dungeons with barely any water. I'm eating one One meal a day of surrounded in their feces and other people that are dying and somehow they lived right then. They had to survive the middle passage and being on the boat. I said so. Genetic toll of the Africans out of two million that have been the ones that survived. They are there are like this like terminator. I mean really. You're genetically so incredible because I mean they actually bred these superheroes humans. I'm sure that's wasn't their design At that time Noor sent unless they were enslaving us in using. They created these incredible people so I want my children to know what they come from and also what they went through addicted survive anything and I think that is so important because a lot of times like for me like I said I'm almost opinion and so a lot of time I like. You don't know what you don't l. Right and so you so important to teach our young boys even because often question no question if a black female ma can effectively raise a black man like in White America. Can't she really teach him how to be a man do? Do we have the capacity to teach him that? What do you think about that as a deep question? I'm I do believe so. I believe that Particularly if we bring in a gift people are surrounded by others and you ensure that the You know he is. He is introduced to other black males even without that. I mean I have to believe that because so many of our young boys are being raised. Line by Sisters that I would like to think that guests I think the answer. Yes yes I mean. And I think there's a lot of men who chime in on this and say that they were raised by single moms and you know and they are doing very well. Do I believe that There are things that a man can provide to a boy that a woman can't set a warm can absolutely do. I think there are things that a woman provides for man that a man can't absolutely but I do believe in that whole thing. They say it takes a village like I do believe that reaching out to others even even You know I raised my kids with my husband but I had so many other people around us because we certainly couldn't supply everything that was needed for them to become the men that I want them to be right. Because you know we all have different experiences so. I just think you know ensuring that they have a very rich approach but do I think that we women look. I know I'm very I baby my boys. More than Aaron does right And not as and I think that they boys sometimes kind of need that you know boy. Get up and run you okay. You know you know they fall you know are are there. Were certain things as kids wants them to do. 'cause I'm on my gosh? They were and you know they'll be fine. I think they push them in that way. I was just the opposite where you I was like. I didn't I only have one side But I was just opposite like I didn't baby him in. I didn't because for a little while. He handed his dad and I were still together so his dad was more like do. No don't cry and so I can't about into that. Yeah so like like. It was a daunting task for me. Like trying to raise a black sun into a man so ultimate goal was to make a man feel like I did not want him to be demand that his dad was. I was trying to make him better so there was no loving on him in hugging on him. In you know all of that like I want him to be hard. Now in hindsight I realized you know I'll probably should have taken a different route but again like I said you don't know what you don't wish you know it's funny you know so our just like you know you know just trying to you know trying to save him from the world like you gotta be hard. You CAN'T BE CRYING. Don't be con- you know. All that stuff is so I messed up. You touch my heart right now. 'cause I was soft with my kids early on but I will say day to this day. I am hard on my kids from exactly what you say and I I will say my biggest sadness is. I don't think black women have the luxury to raise our kids as softly as why. That is it and I think that we don't get me wrong. I think we we go overboard. I think we're so what I try to tell. People is just raising raising. A black child is like when every parent you know you lose your kid like for one minute in the mall or something like that and I think a white woman can. When they find their child they may react with relief and we react with anger. Because we're like God you don't understand you could have you know because I always think I told my kids. I always feel as if I'm fighting for your life right so like the example. One time my boys to macy's and my son enough had on a Hoodie. When we you know we were in the store and it got warm you know. He just got hot and so he took off his jacket but he would go in sometimes and get his his jacket out of the back because we had a couple of bags and I him up and I remember saying you cannot as a black boy was probably ten twelve. Be taking stuff in and out of in and out of your back there are going to assume that you stole it right up it right and I and I said that to him. I mean it could stay. I mean my son came home from college right and I. Don t make sure you take your your hood off while you're driving so Make sure you follow the direction. I mean me telling them to not speed if not as much about them getting killed for speeding as it is about them getting stopped by the police. And that's the guy in getting killed by the police absolutely Scares so you're like is? It is literally a fighting for their lives. That horrible thing will not like seriously. I had no idea what my role was to my son as a Ma all I knew was it to save his life and that that like I ate slept all day long sake his length. That's that was my ultimate emmy. That's it is so sad because in doing that rainy everything that I was trying to save him from. You ran right smack into yeah rice too. He ended up spinning his eighteenth birthday behind bars. I was trying to save him from the world. I was trying to save him from the environment that I was raising him in arden as though I was just so hard for him. And it's like you said I think as as black MOMS. We don't have the luxury of being out because we see what the world can do to you in your environment can do to you. If so we're so busy trying to save lives and we're so busy trying to keep them from becoming this that we don't honor who they are and you you just so right. I mean you're just ruled girl you just make it a hit my heart because when you are trying to survive do really think about because that that Israel love like love becomes a Louis Bible instincts. That's a love not effect. Love is not reading them. A bedtime story necessarily love is not kissing them on the way out. The door. Love is not you know knowing what their favorite cereal is are sitting down and watching TV with them and as they watch their favorite show. Love is like doing everything in your power so they survive. So that means you might be working a crapload of our. So you're so tired when you get home you don't want it you know you want to read a book and and you're just trying to make sure that they're not with you that they're surviving and it does you know it. It changes everything. I don't think people see that right. Oh Y- you are. I'm telling is like girl. I was high so hard to say that blackout was and I was tries so hard to make a man out of him that in my zest to make a man out of him I look the fact that he was already a man. He was a man when he was conceived in my rule it is needed to be happily rolling right so that he could be the man that he was born to be with our so busy trying to save him that there was no room to properly. I think that that's so many people stories and you know I tell my kids. I said you know God doesn't come down and say oh here here. Let me make you a mother. I said the same person I was became a mother right my laws. I'm saying my flaws who I was before My weaknesses and my strengths were all there and I had you and I said and unfortunately you learn on the job like you learn on the job with this parenting thing. Absolutely it does all it like. Obviously that's but it is on the job training and it's all so you do the best you do the best you can though so you have that you have ambient panic though and living what. I what I don't think people I don't think The majority population gets is that being black. Means living at a state of heightened awareness. All the time. Yes.
"white america" Discussed on The Ezra Klein Show
"By not just saying this whole development this globalist development that has led to the destruction of Fayette County Union town fade city. This whole thing is bad. Trump was most willing to curse the changes that have led to real suffering. These people and this is something I wanna I wanNA. I've really drive home. I've got lots of points here that are mostly for conservative audience for a liberal audience. I would say the suffering of the working class and middle America's real. It's not just old white. Straight Christian guys are upset that they lost their privilege. It's not just people looking on a worried that a black guy became president the suffering struggling of the working class in middle. America Israel just like the suffering the struggling of the non white working class in lots of and urban places Israel White Working Class Guys. The sons of the people who have the factory jobs thirty years ago. Those guys really are struggling so I have a lot of thoughts based on that but I think the I would be. I know that you've looked at a host of different communities but Chris Arnold who wrote the Book Dignity Release spoke here is the point and he said on twitter that for white working class voters their response to a political downturn for them has been to vote for a trump or a Pat Buchanan. Or Hey Ron Paul or something like that black working class voters don't vote. They drop out of voting. I think about this all the time. There was a really great near Thames piece from Milwaukee. Right after the twenty sixteen election of a host of black voters who are just like. I didn't vote for anyone. I don't like any of these people. I am out of this based on the work that you've done. Why do you that different working? Class communities deal with political and cultural and societal downturns differently. Who's going to be a million reasons but one thing to keep in mind? Is that that white. Working Class voter mostly did drop out if you remember the best post two thousand twelve analysis was by Sean. Trende who wrote about the missing white voters and it wasn't quite enough to make Romney lose most of the reason Romney losses analysis. That is because he said there's working class white not really attached to religious institution voters from Pennsylvania. Ohio Wis- Wisconsin Michigan and Iowa. Who Stayed Home? Had they voted? It's possible Romney would have one summer all the seats and so I would argue that A lot of the the white working class vote had started tuning out so a lot of what I do. And you read my books bar reporting right and so starting in a two through like. Oh six cycle. I slowly learned what kind of bars to go to. What kind of ours not to go to if you go to a college bar a college kids. Don't vote be there from out of state see. They're getting drunk hotel bar. They're all from out of state. Yuppie Irish pubs were the sweet spot. You had black and white and Hispanic and male and female and old and young and a lot of like. She's voting for Romney and he's voting for Obama couples. It was great one place that I was skipping for years where the roadside country bars. 'cause I pull over you go in you start talking about the economy. Try to gently bring it over towards politics universally they would say politics is a bunch of BS. I don't vote and I'm not GonNa talk about twenty. Sixteen politics is about to be as that's why I'm voting for DONALD TRUMP RIGHT. So there was this disaffected white population that was pushed totally from politics and these people mental. Vania weren't voting for Pat Toomey for Senate but they were voting for Donald Trump. Pat Toomey was just another politician. Conservative Republican maybe my favorite US senator. They weren't voting for him but they were voting for Donald Trump. So what I would say. Is that Hillary? Clinton certainly was not the candidate. Who's going to bring the disaffected working class? Black voter out of that. Same State of political inaction whether Bernier Biden is is an excellent question and Biden's excellent performance in polls of black voters. Early on is promising in that Obama obviously brought out the black vote that hadn't been turned out before. And I do see Bernie turning out lots of people who wouldn't vote if he weren't on the ballot so I'm interested in that idea of trump being seen as outside of politics which is very much how he kind of positioned himself. Oh Yeah I've been talking a lot about wrestling on twitter because once you start thinking about politics is pro wrestling. You just can't stop it's just all K- Fabian. Workshop and work shoots and stuff but he was the one who was like. I know how to do this. This is what I do and I think that that's been something I've tried to point out and think about is in office. There's the trump administration and there's Donald Trump and a lot of times. Those two things have been very different. But obviously there's going to be a big shift in how he positioned himself for twenty twenty but in twenty twenty he will be positioned himself as. I'm this politician who these things done. There is an idea that trump ran on the economy against Hillary. Hillary was saying America is already great. The economy's doing better people are doing better and trump was like the stock market's ally all of this is a lie none of these indicators are real everybody's suffering people like sounds sounds fair now. Trump is the one who's going to be like look at the stock market. Look at your 401K's a lot of Americans don't 401k's everything's great. Let's just keep on going and Bernie's going to be the ones saying hang on a second. The working class still suffering. You're not listening. You're just helping Wall Street fat cats. How do you think that kind of changing relationship? It will impact twenty twenty. I mean certainly given that trump is not like a guy who focuses on governance running for reelection will introduce challenges that running against the system oppose but again I think probably rings false for a lot of people to say the economy's only working for the rich because if you look at wages the bottom quarter of income earners have seen a much higher increase in their wages than the average and certainly than the top quarter of and there's the unemployment's down to three point five percent so trump doesn't have to just point to the stock market he will but you can say stock. Market's doing well and there's fewer people out of work and as a result the working class guys are getting jobs that you you know the previous presidents shift off to China and we can debate about the cause and effect but in a political race if you can point out the fact that more people are working and that wages are going up for the people who need their wages. Go up the most think. That's going to be pretty successful. And ironically the people I found an Iowa who sort of bought into the talk that Oh the economy's not doing great for everybody. Most were sort of retired. Baby boomers people who aren't partaking in the great economy but instead of just getting their their pensions their 401K's their spending down their 401k's instead of building them up and that they're people who Are kind of doing okay. Like upper middle class. People who are retired are the ones who aren't seeing the gain and they kind of get these nice blue collar point by. Yeah Pete's right Buddha dishes right the economy's not doing well for the regular guy. Just look at me. You're not the regular guy if you're retired banker in in two cities so I think that that trump will have trouble running against the system. I mean and you see. He's attacking swamp creatures the very people. He hired writers. Bolton the Goldman Sachs Guy Guy. That's the thing is that how much of that was a position to take like the idea of. I'm going to drain the swamp when you're hiring people who install soundproof booths in their offices or something like that like I think it's interesting. How much of trump and how much politics in general? It relies somewhat on signaling. And I I hate the term virtuous signaling a wrote a piece of New York magazine about it because virtuous signaling basically relies on the idea that everyone is actually secretly terrible. And if you indicate your virtue by doing something in public that just shows that you're just a big liar and I remember to do research for this. I had to show them. All of these tweets people tweeting at the pope like stop virtuous signaling and. I'm like I think the pontiff is allowed to signal virtue as that is kind of the point of the pontiff in some ways. But it's interesting to me. How much of that is signaling? And that actually gets me to something I wanted to talk about. Which is the role that religion plays. Because I would argue that you talked to a lot of people again. These early trump supporters. Not The people who vote in the general who were define themselves as being evangelical Christians Christian your Christian and sometimes I feel as if we talk about Christianity for people who aren't listening. I'm like just there's no like verifying body to determine whether or not you're an evangelical Christian like both of us I was raised Catholic. So we both you know. We were confirmed. Dinner First Communion. We're in like technically. There's actual paperwork on file and legally well. Yeah Yeah Yeah Church legally. I'm like I'm in until let's say I'm out. But for evangelical there's there isn't that system and so I always find it funny when people talk about like. Oh Evangelical. Christians have like which ones because technically like methodists are evangelical but anyway the people who won who trump won over were evangelical Christians who did not go to church yes. The best description of the early trump supporters white evangelical white self defined self described. Evangelical does not go to Church so I think that for a lot of people whose experience faith is very much tied up in going to a place of worship going to synagogue going into a mosque and you point this out if you're driving up towards Ann Arbor and going through to the Toledo Utah to the of the Mosque in Toledo which you can see on that highway which is always how I knew I was like forty five minutes away from home or you talk to people who are Orthodox for whom going to the place is their religious practice. Also because I think that going to the place reinforces what it is that you are there to do for people within a Christian or Catholic tradition. It's an experience you receive the body and blood of Christ. You are within this experience. That is your face when you talk to people for whom that wasn't there experience when you talked about face. What did they base their faith on? Well so again. Christianity again Catholic Church. It's actually an obligation on on these other days to go and it's a grave sin skip mass because eight mortal a mortal sin that too. It's it's the highest level of sin to to Skip Mass just out of laziness or you wanted to do something else and we have a miracle called the Eucharist at mass that you're partaking in If if you're in a state of grace attendance is really important right. That's not true in other Other religions but still a huge number of Protestants evangelicals will go every Sunday especially if they have family. It's a huge part of their essential identity. But if you think about it the phrase that almost no Catholic every uses which is personal relationship with Christ I s is still at the heart of Christianity in the end. This is a one on one thing died for me for Tim. Carney Jesus died for you for Janko Sin. It was an individual thing. He knows us all by name. We are getting our souls into heaven. We can help other people but we can't get somebody else into heaven. It's not like throwing somebody in life both in the end. It's a one on one thing right but humans are being fallen in a particular way. Our nature is that we need other. People are subtle says man's a political animal. The Bible says you know people are not made to be alone. There's a reason that God came down as another person for us that we need other people right and so my understanding of Christianity is very interpersonal. And that was true. Even before as a Christian I became a Catholic as an adult after college but just reading the Bible Reading Philosophy. I went from understanding Christianity as sort of this one on one with God to building an infrastructure you just think about it from a religious perspective. What I'm doing in this book is trying to say for people to have a good life. You need to have an infrastructure of institutions that connect you with other people and so- sociologically church. Attendance is what's correlated with all the good outcomes of more likely to give to charity being Christian or Jewish or Muslim doesn't make you more likely to give to charity. Going to a weekly service makes me more likely to give to charity both secular and religious? But it's very easy to see how somebody would say. These institutions are corrupt in. My church is full of corruption and evil other churches. Some of these church. They'll go to an Iowa like they replaced Christianity with conservative politics others replaced. Christianity would like bad pop music. These institutions are corrupt. God is not corrupt so I am going to stay home and have a personal relationship. And so that's sort of distrust of institutions which is not totally unearned. That's a huge part of the evangelical who does not go to church so now you see why that person is going to be incredibly attracted to Donald Trump who is bashing all the institutions particularly government. But kind of saying all of these institutions are rigged against you kind of on your own rent so I- alone can solve it. I thought an interesting point you make in the book. Is that Obama in two thousand twelve has the you didn't build. That moment wins a lot of conservatives. Were just like I absolutely did build. That I went full John Goltz and I did this thing all by myself. And obviously there were kind of the context of that particular moment talking about specific government programs or infrastructure but the idealization of individuality when you go into a little bit is not a liberal frog like the project necessarily the idea that like. I alone stand here. And I think that when we're talking about evangelical out of evangelical so we don't go to church with being conservative. How tied to that idea of into. Is that idea of their own faith individualism..
Larry Itliong and the Great Delano Grape Strike
"When I moved to America I was a sophomore and one of the first classes I took in high school was US history. My teacher was weird. We had what he called open book tests so we didn't really have to study and he played movies during those tests. One time I think it was pirates of the Caribbean. This teaching style was so different than what I was used to back home. But that wasn't what struck me the most. It's that when we got to the part of American history set in the Philippines there was just one paragraph in our history book less than half a page dedicated to this period of American imperialism. I think that paragraph mentioned Emilio Aguinaldo who became the first president of the Philippines and the acquisition of the Philippines by the US from Spain in eighteen ninety eight. Let's it nothing in those pages talked about the bloody Philippine American war. There was no mention of the American occupation that took place for almost half a century in definitely didn't talk about Filipinos who came to America during this time not as immigrants but as nationals subjects of American empire the generation of monotones who are promised with the riches of the American dream. But who face the harsh realities of American life instead? I mean when we think about the history of the United States we say oh Boston. The Boston Tea Party. We all learn. It is White America. That's Gail Roma Santa. A writer and publisher who is the CO author of journey for Justice? A new book the chairs the story of a Filipino American labor organizer and Community Leader Left. Outta most American history textbooks the tough-talking man with a moustache glasses and sometimes cigar. Larry Leon. He was an is a Filipino. American leader who united Filipino Americans and other ethnicities Gayle Co wrote for justice with her friend. The late professor and historian Don Shula. Noma Balan- you might remember her from episodes one and two of this podcast. They both grew up in Stockton California and they didn't learn about their cities rich Filipino history until they went away to college. It's why they wrote the book. This book needs to be in schools and in libraries in the hands of our families and our caregivers so that they can say oh. I was part of American history. Obviously I didn't learn about Larry Leong in high school. I don't think I even heard about him in college. And I took Asian American studies yet. Too many Larry. It long is a Filipino. American civil rights hero a leader in that first generation of Filipinos in America and even in the diaspora he led the Delano grape strike. And people don't really know what that means and that really is a point where we had so many Filipinos and their jobs were jeopardy and they had so much to lose. Nobody had health insurance major resources. They didn't have any political clout. They were migrant farm workers on this episode chapter in American history. We should learn about in school. The story of Larry Leon and the great Delano grape strike pivotal moment in the American farm worker movement. Most people have heard that Mexican American labor leaders Cesar Chavez and Dolores. Horta were a big part of this not a lot of folks know that it was Larry it Leong and the Filipino farmworkers. Who Kick started the whole thing in the first place?

"So let me, let me go. Here we are. We're talking about these crazy laws that are currently on the books that you get nailed for with Mike chase and Mike. Let's look at things, like, for instance, the tea party or the master cake. Shop. We know that the we know that the city with the master cake shop. They have they were. They were part of this. They wanted this guy to have to be forced to make wedding cakes. He felt it was unconstitutional. The brings it to the supreme court. The supreme court basically says, well we're going to do it. Here's how you do it. He's just been sued again, and I thought to myself, this is the third time how is this guy affording it? But if the if the police or the state wanted to make sure that they taught this guy, a lesson they could go in on some bakery related thing that is really old that nobody knows and says you're in violation of this and bleed the guy dry. He doesn't have a chance of survival. Right. You're, you're exactly right about that. And, and I have a whole chapter in in how to become a federal criminal about food so how to become a federal criminal with food. And the truth. Is that the FDA and the USDA regulate all kinds of food food crimes, and they can be so minor? I mean, in fact, a very similar situation is not that many years ago, there was a bakery, up in New England that listed in sort of cute fashion. They listed love as an ingredient in their granola. Well, the FDA sent them a letter and said, hey, your products. Are miss branded because love is not anything. We know anything about it is not an ingredient we've ever heard of. And so your food is miss branded, and the truth is that becomes a federal crime. So yeah for for the master cake, shop or for anybody else in that industry if they're a political opponent of somebody you could go in and you conduct an investigation, you're gonna find some violation of something because because the federal government has so far exceeded its its limited powers set forth in the constitution that there are hundreds of thousands of crimes, and potentially thousands of regulations that a person could have violated. They'd be able to find something the harder, they look for tea party members tea party members know this, because the IRS investigated so many leaders of the tea party, and they came up with nothing but they had to go through all this all this, you know, federal regulation to be able to clear their name. It costs them about load of time and money. They know because just trying to get a five oh, one C three or C four whatever it is for many tea parties. They couldn't get it done because of the red tape, and it was because they were going against somebody in the government. So we've never faced this as Americans before we've never seen this black Americans saw this in the Jim crow era. But we haven't faced this white America, and it's coming to all Americans if we're not if we don't wake up no, no. For sure. And last year, I wrote an op Ed in the Wall Street Journal. Cole lock her up lock him up. They could lock you up about that exact point, which is this, this picking the unpopular person the politically unpopular whoever and using this coercive, weight of literally countless federal crimes federal laws and regulations to, to, to carry out essentially vindictive purposes. That is the problem that creates, it's, it's not that we're arguing that regulation is inherently good or inherently bad. If you go through the book you will see that every aspect of modern American life is regulated in such a way that gives the government immense power for for politically unpopular people to be prosecuted. I'll give you one example that I go through in the book, which is if you leave the country with more than twenty five dollars worth of nickels in your pocket. That's a federal crime. Okay. And I'll show you I show you how to do that. I mean, you're going to need some pants with some good pockets in a nice dirty belt, but the truth is that if you leave the country with more than twenty five dollars worth a nickel. Nls you've committed a federal crime and face up to five years in prison. It's just one example of the government requiring all kinds of reporting and all kinds of information from you, not that you harmed anybody or actually created any kind of injury to anybody. But because the government so wants information that if you don't give that information to them, you can find yourself on the other end of an indictment and potentially boundless investigation. And this is made much much worse. Because we have we've disengaged in separated ourselves from the constitution and.

But if the raiders had the chats, how fast would they trade Derek Carr straight up for Jimmy Garoppolo all anybody really wanted from car last week was a my bad a simple admission that he made a huge mistake by grounding a pass on that fourth and fifth play late against the chargers. He had to at least lofta floaty in the general direction of anyone in raiders gear. Everybody knows that was a mistake. Almost everybody genius. Bruce Jenkins idea of holding the NBA all star game team choosing just before the game at the arena. Such brilliant thinking by Jenkins is not surprising. I'm pretty sure he invented the twenty four second clock. Small suggestion to augment Jenkins idea paint the court to look like cracked blacktop. Hey raiders. You know? Okay. Is going to sue you. So why wait make plans now to play all your home games next season in London? You won't have to deal with the Hayden apathy. You would be sure to experience in Oakland. And every week you'll play an opponent throw enough kilter by the time change and travel. Once again, the NBA is light years ahead of other pro leagues in moving toward gender equality in hiring officials just as they were and are in hiring minority coaches the league signed two more female refs.

Michael Cohen claims Trump made repeated racist references
"To vote for me. Michael Cohen also recounted don't Trump saying racist things about black contestants on his TV show. Donald trump. The politician is the champion of American racists, America's most famous public racists. And putting David Duke have always been full-fledged. Trump supporters David Duke knows a racist when he sees one. And so the democratic campaigns around the country this year against Trump is also campaigns against racism. Here's what President Obama had to say in Georgia tonight campaigning for Stacey Abrams to become not just the first African American woman governor in the Georgia, but the first African moon woman, governor of any state in the United States. Mccalls in weeks of this election. We have seen repeated. Constant incessant. Now. On stuck attempts to divide us. That is designed to make us angry. And make us fearful. With images and rhetoric that are designed to exploit. History of racial and ethnic and religious division. To try to pit us against one. Another. To make us believe that things will be better. If it just weren't for those who don't look like us, the good news. In four days. Georgia can reject. We can come together. Our country's cool. That's what Stacee stands for. You're just back from Georgia and joy on the day that we discover to no one surprise that. Donald Trump says racist things in private Michael Cohen. There's Barack Obama out there on the campaign trail trying to address this trying to heal in whatever way he can the racial division. That's out there. Again, it is it is this to there. They are presidents of two different countries. And you saw it really today when John Lewis spoken in Macon, Georgia four Stacey Abrams and talking about what he went through just to have the right to vote. Look Stacey Abrams. Lawrence tells a story about when she was valedictorian of her high school class going to the governor's mansion and being turned away by the guard who was white who said you don't belong here. And that was her sort of only memory really going to the governor's mansion was having her parents were both Methodist ministers have to dress down this white guard who was refusing to let a young Stacey Abrams into the governor's mansion. So I mean sort of the. Poetic irony that, she's now running to be the governor of the state is sort of sort of perfect, and she's actually really from Mississippi which has its own fraught history. I think we tend to try to confine that history of racism to the berry distant past. It isn't distant at all. And I think what we're seeing is an election, which Donald Trump is literally closing making the closing argument to white America. And it is a test for white America. He's saying Brent, racial panic. Those people are coming to take over your country. Those people are invading Brown. People are invading Brown. People don't belong here. This is our country, and you d to vote for Republicans to keep them out and Brock Obama, saying, no, no, no this is shared country. This is a country where we all can have a piece of it where we all share in its benefits, but we all have to take responsibility for its history. Together. These are such stark differ starkly different visions.
