Maryland Panel Tasked With Investigating State's Lynching History
"Government backed commission of its kind is about to start investigating a harrowing part of the state's history. The Maryland Lynching Truth and Reconciliation Commission has set out to document the state's 42 known racial lynchings. The panel delivered an interim report to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan earlier this month. Charles Davis Jr is the commission's vice chairman. He joins us now to share the commission's plans and goals for this project. Welcome. Thank you so much for having me so tell us. Where did the idea to create this commission originally come from? Sure, most historical scholarship concerning racial terror lynching is centered in the deep South. And so you have states such as Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi and the like who get noticed for their history of racial tear. However, it's important for people to understand that lynching took place throughout the United States. I'm in. One of those states that is often overlooked is a state of Maryland. And so we call Maryland the middle ground in many ways, because it represented like most border states, a style that was southern but also had a progressive leaning on. So this oftentimes caused the state to be overlooked in terms of looking at the legacy of racial terror and tell us what are the primary goals of this commission. The commission is tasked with investigating lynchings that took place in the 19th and 20th century in Maryland, and we are centered and focused on salvaging the humanity, first of the victim's arm and then really laying out each case individually and hopefully bring about some semblance of Justice to the family members in the descendants of the deceased victims. Can you talk about a specific case that the commission is investigating? Right now? Sure. Yes, we're looking into the lynching of Matthew Williams, which took place in Salisbury, Maryland, in 1931, and so Matthew Williams was a young labourer who got into a dispute with his employer over discrepancies in his pay Following that his employer was founded. And Williams was actually hospitalized after the employer's son shot him and the lynch mob descended upon the hospital and drug him out of the first floor window. And the lynching commenced. And he was eventually taken to the drug to the courthouse lawn in front of thousands, along with local law enforcement politicians, religious leaders who did nothing. Eventually, as if that wasn't enough. He was eventually burned, and no one was ever held accountable. And no one was ever held accountable. So what does the commission do with a case like this? Today. Your ultimate goal I imagine is trying to figure out exactly what happened to Matthew Williams. Yes, And that is the ultimate goal. And it's important to note that we see the racial terror lynchings of old that took place in Maryland. Directly in relationship to the ongoing racial tear that we're witnessing in the United States. And so that's important to consider when we're looking at this and investigating this today in this fractured America that we're seeing, as relates to race relations on DSO. Yes, The truth is what we're seeking getting to the bottom of it, seeing who indeed was complicity and involved whether it was locals on state government officials because we believed that the descendents are owed this truth. Is the state. I'm in what we hope the citizens of Maryland and decisions of nine states learn from this work that we're undertaking is that truth comes first. And if we have the truth in there could one day possibly be Reconciliation. Charles Davis Jr is the vice chairman of the Maryland Lynching Truth and Reconciliation Commission. And he is an assistant professor of conflict resolution and history at George Mason University. Thank you very much for

Why Section 230 is under attack
"The Internet as we know, it depends on a couple of sentences. It's section two thirty subsection. C of the communications decency. act, of Nineteen ninety-six. And Tech companies and Internet freedom activists say without the rights prescribed in those sentences, the platforms will use every day facebook twitter youtube read it. They wouldn't have existed. That may sound extreme but defenders of the law have had to make a strong argument for keeping it the way it is. That's because over the last few years section two thirty has come under attack from both sides of the aisle section to thirty should be revoked the me should be revolt number one for Zuckerberg and other plants that's pretty foundational. Love the the modern. Race Internet exactly right and it should be revoked. was made new village just remove or totally changed to thirty. What I think we can say is we're going to regulate let's say provision within a regulated. Most recently, Attorney General William. Bar sent his own proposal to Congress about how to change the law and ceremony report here Rico is here talking about it Hey Sarah hate entity. To quickly go over what exactly section to thirty is, what was it meant to do? So section two thirty is the law that gives you know, Internet, platforms like facebook twitter reddit immunity from lawsuits about what their users post on them. So I mean if you post something on facebook that's libellous defamatory about somebody oh, that person can sue you for libel like they could sue anybody else right but then they can't sue facebook just because it hosted that content. So, basically, this dates back to the early days. The Internet you know the mid ninety s when Congress is trying to figure out. How to legislate speech on it, there was a core case where a judge ruled that an Internet service that had moderated its forums was there for liable for something liable lists that a user posted on it and that if they had it moderated it at all then they wouldn't have been responsible so that decision you can imagine. The effect at this, if it remains today would have had on your those services that either not allow any third party content at all in which case like facebook and twitter doesn't really exist. Or they would just not moderate anything. Section thirty was sort of this happy medium. Now, Senator Ron, Wyden co-authored it, and it basically said that Internet service could moderate the content its users posted on. and Be Immune from any. Civil lawsuits resulting from what those users posted and so what? Senator Ron Wyden said often is that it's like a sword and a shield, the shield being from lawsuits, and then the sword being being allowed to sort of moderate content. Guess what happened here you know both Democrats and Republicans seem to have objections with section two thirty. Why did this falso firmly out of favor? I mean a lot of people still do like I think especially the platforms that are protected by it but a lot of the arguments against it pretty much boils down to things. The first big reason is that there are websites that sort of abuse their immunity protections to host. Content that is objectively bad and harmful, and one example of this would be websites that had child sex trafficking ads on them which because of section two thirty, their victims had like no legal recourse. So a law called. The foster which was passed in two thousand eighteen removed immunity protections from websites or platforms that hosted. Child Sex trafficking ads basically. and. Then the second argument that we see a lot which is more conservatives make is that because of the huge part that these websites sort of play and how information spreads this companies gets a basically determined the speech that has allowed on those platforms and a lot of conservatives feel that they make decisions that sensor them and their ideas and their speech wall leading lot of progressive. Speech pass and they don't think that's fair. So they want to change the law in a way that means that those platforms have to moderate in a way that they believe is sort of politically neutral gotcha. So now there's this announcement from the department, of Justice Right Trump's department of justice for changing to thirty. What does that say is that sort of the conservative argument you'd expect Yeah I mean Attorney General Bar has really doesn't like section to thirty and kind of made it emission of his sort of all along to to make it do what he thinks it should, and so the latest thing here is a proposal for what legislation that Congress will pass should look like to to make section to thirty. More applicable to what the Internet. Is today he thinks. There's two parts of this and the first one this pretty like along the lines of system foster, which just adds a couple more types of content that are excluded from. The immunity protections that's like child-sex-abuse terrorism and cyber stalking. So it would remove section to thirty protections from an additional types of content, and then the second thing would force platforms sort of spell out their rules for Speier, allowed to say or not say apply them equally. Not Make Arbitrary Decisions de Conservatives believed that they make that's unfairly sensors them.
League of Legends Salary Caps
"Talk about League of legends. This story totally flew under the radar guaranteed no one watching right now saw this at all and to me this is a major like really major and Anyone talked about it. This was on Dadi. Sports. L. L. TO IMPLEMENT SALARY CAPS will assign players in tears based on performance. So basically, what they're saying is a Chinese. League of legends okay. is going to have salary caps like the NBA. So you can only pay players so much money. And and that they'll have a minimum wage, the lower limit, a luxury tax if you go over the salary cap right. but basically. That players based on how well they perform will be assigned to tears, which determines how much salary they can actually make. I this to me is unheard of both I think in traditional sports. And Any Sports William do you think this is great like as a team owner? Do you like seeing this is a I mean I. It's tough for me to say anything other than I really like it. You know I mean like look I mean it. It's in the L. p. l., which is hardly forefront of what we're looking at right now in terms of sports ecosystem but it's a very important league in the global context right and I suspect it's me to address a couple things right? Like one is. Like let's I think it's probably not good for the players because anytime there's a salary cap that's usually like that. That means you're salaries caps really I don't know if this is a win certainly for the top pros, it's on a win for the less strong pros. Maybe there's a benefit here because now they're more draft viable salary basis although to be honest, they were probably already draft five on a salary basis right? Because the answer is like if there's ten slots, the eleventh players basically like. They're either playing like a highly specialized scherzer deploying a highly especially skill or not. Right. So you know there's a lot of momentum to get to get edge players into the scene. I suspect it was driven by the fact that there there is a little bit of arms race sports, salaries that takes place right and I think the publishers looking at it and they're saying, do I want my teams because let's be honest this is not altruistic I. Don't think is right being like a really help you. If we capped the salaries, you spend less on your players right and also it's not even altruism because I don't think it's good for the players as I've said so I suspect this was motivated more by. Riot would like that money going elsewhere into content into videos into train like basically anything other than paying rents on athletes and the salary cap I thing is interesting. It's it's like. I'd like it to catch on I think it's good. We have models and traditional sports with salary caps that I don't think really work because a lot of this has to do with teeth if you're luxury taxes, two percent nobody cares. But I. Think it's an interesting thing to look at and I think I. Think it's a good like it shows that riot is continuing to look. Like they're not resting on the laurels at the L. and what's happening. It looks like they're looking at other structures on an even though this is not the lcs like this is an important league, and I suspect could be viewed as an incubation ground for new ideas you know. Says, massive for the future reports at I agree Cam Roman says this only in China so for yesterday. and Joseph I'm not familiar with the of legends but I'm guessing some teams make more making unfair advantage, I? Yeah. That's that's that's every league for the most part I just I love this for a couple of reasons one, there's a clear effort here to make. Team ownership more sustainable. Which? Just about every other sports league has largely ignored. Right, like here, there's a clear effort to say, and this is the second thing. I love about it and you mentioned it in in some ways it dismantles the ability to have an arms race right? That's fundamentally what it does. Players can still be played paid well within this construct and I would argue it's much more of a mirror talk crisi within this construct. But what you don't get with this is like. Team XYZ decides they really WanNa sign faker right and they're willing to pay faker fifty million dollars right now all of a sudden every player who thinks he's as good as faker or maybe sort of as good as faker is now going well, he's got he's getting fifty million, I want forty million right and you sort of get this runaway train of player salaries. That are being driven usually by one or two irrational signings. and this sort of. Cuts the knees off of that like it it, it eliminates the ability to have that is driven signing. And it ties it also performance. And therefore. You have real long term stability I think as a team owner in this league

"Is attorney general William bar. They wanna talk a lot about that press conference that he had that you mentioned Dominica, and they wanna talk about whether or not he's putting political spin on the Muller report. And I'm wondering if either of you can talk a little bit about why that might be something that they care about now. And where it's coming from. The question is is William bar acting as the attorney general of the United States or as the personal attorney of President Donald Trump. The the question that Democrats are trying to pose is whether or not bar has the country's best interest in mind or if he's just batting for for Donald Trump. I mean, they're going to point for example to the discrepancies between or their perceived discrepancies between bars letter in March and the Muller report today did he try to pre spin the mole report for the Trump administration? There are certainly a lot of discrepancies between how he described the report and how Muller's report actually read when we got the pages. What's the point of going after bar at this? The Muller report is out. They have the redacted version of what does it get them to be having this conversation? I think it made it much more likely that we're going to hear from Robert Muller himself now because if you could politicize the attorney general, and he's opened himself up to that in Democrats minds that they can put him aside and say, let's just talk to the man who was in charge of this investigation who was picked to be the special counsel who ran this entire investigation. And we have bar saying yesterday that he doesn't mind if Muller testifies, and that certainly sets up a testimony from a man who has been completely silent for the last two years while the president has called the investigation he's headed up a witch hunt. What about this idea that that Democrats, or at least leadership and some campaign people say that this this whole Russia investigation Muller himself? None of that had any bearing on why they won the house in two thousand eighteen I mean, I've talked to several Democrats who say, you know, maybe we should move on. Maybe we. Should go back to healthcare. Go back to Gratien. I mean does this make it harder for them to do that? What's key for twenty twenty for Democrats is maintaining and retaining those independent voters who voted with them in two thousand eighteen and the reason they voted with Democrats in two thousand eighteen one was a return to some normalcy. And to have a check and balance on the White House and congressional Republicans. But also because Democrats were pushing healthcare as a singular issue over and over again talking about bread and butter pocket book things that matter to actual people when they some sometimes people see this Muller investigation as something that's a Washington story. It's a beltway story, and how does it affect my life as a regular person outside of Washington DC who's just trying to get by everyday? So Tim, if you are a Republican, and you're picking up a copy of this Muller report beltway story as titled by Dominica, and you're like all right. I my adventure is going to start with volume one. What is it? What does that get you where what is the pa-? Political advantage of only talking about volume. One of this report so volume one deals with ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government and the question of conspiracy or collusion. So the ultimate conclusion by the Muller team is that there was not enough evidence to establish collusion and Republicans just want to zoom in on that fact, and move on Tim you, and I had a long conversation yesterday about.

"Attorney general William bar is set to testify this morning on Capitol Hill in his first appearance before lawmakers since his summary of Robert Muller's Russia investigation, it's supposed to be about routine budget matters. But the special counsel report is expected to feature prominently. Meanwhile, the escalating political battle over the report centers on reductions, Mr. bars redacting, at least four categories of information before issuing it to congress and the public Devlin Barrett who covers the Justice department and the F B I at the Washington Post says the fight over blackout boxes is likely to lead to months of battles between congress and the Justice department Devlin, what can we expect bar has publicly pledged to be as transparent as possible. Now, transparency is often the holder. The other issue is grand jury material can be interpreted different ways. I think prosecutors genuinely interpret the category, very broadly. But I think when there's this much attention on such a high profile case. Especially a case in which congress also has a vested interest in knowing what happened in the course of the investigation. I think there's some pretty good arguments to define Grainger material material narrowly, but you know, we really don't know what's inside bars head as far as those specifics go, and obviously we don't know what's in the report. So we don't know what he has to work with. We've heard grumblings that some of the investigators on Mr. Muller's team or not happy with the way, Mr. bar has portrayed things through that summary will that have an impact here it could. I think there's a lot of angst and uncertainty is to as to what bars doing, and I think that sort of adds to the pressure on bar and self. I think he knows that his time in office may be defined by by this document, and how he handled his document. So I think there's a lot of pressure on him to be forthcoming as possible. But you know, he also has some pretty strong views about executive power and about what congress shouldn't be able to grab. So it'll be. Interesting to see how those things play out in the final version of the document from speaking with Devlin Barrett national security reporter at the Washington Post. He covers the justify Justice department in the F B I. He's got a piece of dental scrutiny and suspicion as mother report undergoes reductions what about the recent court decision. I think it was on Friday with regards to grand jury stuff is that a help or hurt to Mr. bars approach here. You know, it's interesting. They the Justice department immediately put out a statement saying that they were glad that the court recognizes the importance of grand jury secrecy. And you know, the the cases unrelated and doesn't really speak directly to the issues in the report. So I wouldn't assume that that decision impacts anything to directly, but it definitely helps within within the Justice department. There are people who are arguing that essentially pe- we the people in charge should be more tightly controlled with the information that we should they. Should not just pump everything out and let the public sort through all the evidence at that would be a dangerous precedent to set. And for those folks inside the department, I think they they will take some more ammunition from that decision because it agrees with general principle. There's been a lack of leaks for lack of better terminology here. I mean, something like this Shirley with so much at stake. Politically, somebody has seen something in would have called somebody like yourself with a little nugget of information. So I think this do things one part of the investigation you can see by the folks they have interacted with and to you know, when when the special counsel's office was created they obey shit. They basically stood up their own little mini US attorney's office and by separating themselves from the regular work of the Justice department that is conducive to preventing leaks. Generally the other factor here, though is just Bob Muller's personality himself. He's not a person who who has any patience or tolerance for that kind of stuff. And I think he has made that abundantly clear to the relatively small number of people who worked with him on this. So all those people who are impaneled on grand juries right nothing from those folks either. Right. I mean, they haven't grand jurors tend not to speak. I mean, it's it's very rare. When you see a grandeur as opposed to a regular speak about anything because you know, the the rules are explained very very clearly to them and most people follow those rules established Devlin Barrett.
