"So yesterday when much of the country was taking the day off in commemoration of one of America's civil rights heroes. If not the most well-known civil rights hero, Dr Martin Luther King junior there two states that use the day is not paternity to simultaneously. Celebrate confederate general Robert Ely and those two states are Alabama and Mississippi, and if you need to reminder, despite what your textbooks may have said robbery was not an honorable man or a reluctant hero who simply fighting for the rights of his home state of Virginia as he's often described in our popular American memory imagination. He is. In fact, a man who conducted slave hunts a free black Americans his man who massacred black union soldiers who tried to surrender during the war innocence. He is a man who led a treasonous army to fight a war with the intention of maintaining expanding the practice of human bondage against black people. There's no way to honor him without honoring a history that was committed to the project of chattel slavery in white supremacy. Just like full stop. So I think that's important to know. Just because I always struck by healthy people are aware that that is something that happens in also just quickly. I think it's really important for us to remember the whole Listrik legacy of Dr king is important to remember him beyond a single line in a single payer graph of one speech on one day. It is important to remember that he believed in guaranteed employment and universal basic income guaranteed. Income should not just be used to provide for the most basic needs of survival. But should actually reduce economic inequality. The believed in the fundamental redistribution of wealth. He is someone who understood that racism and capitalism were deeply intertwined he said, quote, negroes must not only have the right to go into any establishment open to the public, but they must also be absorbed into our economic system in such a manner that they can afford to exercise that right? So he has this profound in Alice's of the relationship between racism capitalism, and he also understood the larger global context of inequality. He was deeply concerned with how imperialism in colonial. Eliza shaped the political economic landscape of global south insisting that people who lived in wealthy countries like ours have the resources and scientific knowledge available to eliminate poverty wherever it existed in that we simply have made a choice not to and that there was a moral obligation to institute, you know, what is essentially the equivalent Marshall plan in countries throughout Africa and Asia and South America, all of these other places that have suffered at the hands of western imperialism. The summary is Robbie leaves trash, and Dr king is more than a single line in a dream speech Clinton. It's not just Robert Lee's birthday is being celebrated but in five states, they actually celebrate confederate history month in April. So Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas and in Georgia they had celebrated up until Dylann roof killed a black church goers in twenty fifteen they decided to stop celebrating confederate history month. But in five states they? Celebrate it. So this is something that is not just a day, but many states have dedicated an entire month to celebrating the confederacy in all of the hate and racism that stands for and just as a reminder. This is what we mean when we say there are not two sides to oppression. You can't both sides issue like racism, it's not that you either like Dr king and went to celebrate him or you like genocide enslavement family separation raping, black, women, etc. Etc. And you choose celebrate robbery. Lee win MLK holiday was handed down as a federal mandate. There were southern states. That said, okay, we'll some people aren't going going to want to celebrate Martin Luther King. So let's give them another option. So that I can keep those folks happy, and they can keep voting for me that kind of strategy is what provides a foundation for the idea that you can just have a different opinion about oppression. Instead of understanding what the facts are. This is a reminder that there are a host of stay. It's have laws prohibit the removal of the statue. So in Alabama in twenty seventeen George in the early twentieth century, Mississippi, two thousand four Carolina twenty teen South Carolina, two thousand Tennessee, twenty thirteen Virginia nineteen to there are hosted places that have these laws that make it almost impossible to move a center statues.

"Go to the days of Robert E leeann division and corps, commanders were under fire, and so's Robert Ely nowadays, you have to make a conscious effort, but I think it's just as important as ever now if you were to include. Your own biography and leaders myth and reality. What do you think that theme of your chapter might be? Yeah, that's a great one. I I think it is that the most interesting part of my personal experience was the transformation J sock as we changed an organization the nature of it. I think that it would have been about somebody who pushed a change really hard. But didn't do the change themselves. I get credit for being this transformational leader what I was was a person who was part of a team that created a transformation in my contribution was to create an environment in which that transformation could and would occur and creating an ecosystem nurturing it and whatnot. I never had the right answer. I never was smart enough. But I was lucky enough to recognize people around me could figure out the right answer. And I was had enough humility to know that somebody else had the right answer. Let's go with it. Yeah. Of enjoyed talking. To you before we go. I don't want to ask you if you have any interest in politics. But is there any scenario down the line where you could see yourself running for office never been an ambition of mine. I'm at a point now where I think American politics or a crisis leaderships at a crisis. I think American politics or crisis. And so I don't want any American to say that they won't be a part of it. I don't want any American to say they won't vote because they don't care that they wouldn't serve that they won't run for office because we're really at an all hands on deck moment. Well, I enjoyed the book it's called leaders myth and reality, I highly recommended folks general Stanley mcchrystal it's been an honor. Thanks for talking with me kind head me. Thank you..

"For general Stanley mcchrystal. This is success. I want the company the organization to be confident in themselves. If I got hit by a car, they'd say, we're going to miss stand. But guess what? In his honor. We're gonna move forward mcchrystal lead America and satellites in the war in Afghanistan before retiring as a four star general in two thousand ten he revolutionized the joint special operations command j sock and he's best known for taking out the leader of Qaeda in Iraq. Crystal just published a book called leaders myth and reality he explains how revisiting the legacy of confederate general Robert E Lee helped him realize it was time to redefine leadership. I grew up figuratively. Speaking with Robert Lee grew up in Virginia. I grew up in northern Virginia not far from his boyhood home, and I went to Washington high school, and then when I got seventeen I went to West Point as Robert Lee hit, and when you go to West Point, you don't. Escape properly. I lived in the barracks there were paintings property. And while every other leader at West Point is famous and taught he special and then when I got older, and I was retired. And I had this picture that my wife had given me forty years before my wife had paid twenty five dollars for when I was a second Lieutenant and hung it proudly number set of quarters we ever had because for me it represented. This is what I believe when someone came into my quarters, they'd seal robbery lead. Those are the values that he believes it, and I was proud of that. Then after Charlottesville in my wife, any we'd been married forty years at the time. She goes, I think you ought to get rid of that picture. And my first response was you gave it to me. Honey, I can never get rid of that. And she says now, and I said, well why? And she says, I think it's communicating something you don't think it is. And I said, what do you mean, he was general officer? He just did his thing. He was a military guy out of politician or something she said, you may think that but people in our home may not think that they may think you're trying to communicate something deeper white supremacy and all those things so one morning, I took it down literally threw it away. And it was it was a pretty emotional moment for me. And then as we started writing this book and we'd already begun the initial work. I realized I couldn't write a book about leadership. I wrote about Robert Ely. And I knew that was dangerous because robbery Lee become a controversial character. There's a part of American society that is just passionate in his defense part of it that is passionate against him. And everybody's going gonna weigh in. But you know, I'd grown up with Robert Ely. Both as a person in my mind, but also is an ideal and just recently I walked down just to walk the distance between his childhood home and the slave trading house in Alexandria, Virginia. Which was the second busiest slave trading house in the United States. And this is where northern African Americans were bought some Friedman were were captured, but others were bought from farms that were profitable and shipped to the deep south where cotton was so profitable. And so it was right in front of him. It was ten blocks from his home..

He drank a little bit too much. You know what I'm talking about? Now regarding calling Robert Ely. Incredible. Because I'm sure many in the media also took on Bridget that. There's a piece we're gonna put up on Larry elder dot com. Call attack on Robert E Lee is attack is an assault on American history itself. And it's written by a man named Allan brownfield brownfield is a. Lawyer author served on staff of US Senate house of representatives also staff of the office of the vice president. Here's what he writes about Lee. Quote, everyone knows at least surrender to grant at apple Matic's, effectively ended the civil war. What few remember today is the real heroism of Robert E Lee. By surrendering. He was violating the orders, given by Jefferson Davis, the elected leader of the confederacy. Talks about how Lee wanted to continue the war as a guerilla war. And. Lee refused. This direct order. Quote, Davis had called on the confederacy to ship from a conventional war to a dynamic guerrilla war of attrition designed to wear down the north and force it to conclude that keeping the south in the union would not be worth the pain and the ongoing sacrifice. But Robert E Lee knew the war was over. If it were not for Robert E Lee decision, not to blindly follow irrational instructions to keep fighting a guerrilla war indefinitely, the surrender at EPA Matic's never would have taken place in our nation's history would have been far different end of quote. How many times have you heard? From grade school. It was a great tactician and that early on in the war. He was winning battle after battle after battle. And as President Trump just now said the commander in chief ABRAHAM LINCOLN was frustrated kept trying to find somebody that that could beat Lee. And grant had finished the bottom of his class was preceded the drunk in the famous story is when Abe Lincoln was told about about Lee's drinking. He said find out what he's drinking in order a case for the rest of my generals.

"Is incredible. He drank a little bit too much. You know what I'm talking about? Right. So Robert E Lee was a great general. And ABRAHAM LINCOLN developed a phobia, he couldn't beat Robert E Lee, he was going crazy. I don't know if you know this, but Robert Ely was winning battle after battle after battle and ABRAHAM LINCOLN said, I can't speak Robert E Lee. And he had all of these generals. They look great. They were the top of their class at West Point. They were the greatest people. There's only one problem. They didn't know how to hell the win. They didn't know how to fight. They didn't know how. That's what NBC ran and put out the story that here's President Trump praising. Robert E Lee. Well, that's that's not really how it went. What NBC did? He's just absolutely positively horrible. Let me pick it up with him talking about Robert E Lee, and then I'll let it continue the full clip, and he had all of these generals. They look great. They were the top of their class at West Point. They were the greatest people. There's only one problem. They didn't know how to how to win. They didn't know how to find. They didn't know how and one day. It was looking really bad. And like, you just said you hardly knew his name. And they said don't take him. He's got a drinking problem. And I said, I don't care what problem as you. Guys are winning. And his.

"Citizens who really care about what's going on, what racial inequality in this country that is what they're talking about, but what does he do? He says, be quiet and play. You're getting paid a lot of money to do that. So why don't you just do that? And so that is the problem with this president and and it's not just entertainers and black players. It is also black figures just in general, and he, he uses it by saying things like attacking IQ's right, attacking, what is it? What is it that you're upset about? You have everything that you can possibly need. And the last thing I'll say on this point job than is that this week we, we remember the birthdays of Michael Brown who would have been twenty two years old this week, and also Stefan Clark would have been twenty four years old this week, both killed by police officers and never have gotten their families haven't gotten any type of, you know, any type of satisfaction or or. Or anything for their deaths and and this is what NFL players, black players, black people who are speaking up against this racial inequality are talking about their lives, and let's keep in mind. It was in the death of Philander Casteel in Minnesota that moved Colin Kaepernick to do his very public protests mainly let me bring you in here to get your response. But before we do that, we have to show this clip from your documentary stone goes in the south. Let's watch that and then talk about it on the other side. Charlotte, having to Charlottesville someone was killed some machete at someone else's beaten up. This is a prize you when you see that people are at bad, Vera Lynn about their support and defense of Robert Lee and the rest? Well, they're not the ones that started defending, yes, I can understand that, but they're not the ones that started had the people wanted to tear down a beautiful monument. It wouldn't have. So it's the counter protesters while I think one thing that has been lost in all this, we know Heather hires death and we mourn her collectively, right, and we see the divisions, but this all started over Robert Ely people came out in defense of this statue. I wanted to go back down to the south to better understand what this deep connection was all about because we knew that it was always about more than just a monument. So went to Virginia and Kentucky in Alabama and Mississippi, and spent time with the descendants of competitive veterans and what these idols. These mine was mean to them, but also on the other side, black folks who have to walk in the shadow of these statues ancestors of the enslaved to talk about this complicated disturbing history, but also how it resumes today. Because when you talk to folks Bill, every other reason besides slavery for the civil war, they'll talk about all the pinpoints of the loss 'cause that it wasn't about slavery as we're actually kind of happy. And it was about defending virtue of this antebellum south right. And so there's a lot of mythology in romance, but at every turn people are engulfed in this sense of history, fifteen hundred confederate monuments across the country. Their schools named after him. It's hard to travel the south at all without crossing Jefferson Davis highway, at least once in their knee deep in. Yeah, I mean, I had to go to my old car dealership on Jefferson Davis highway to go get it repaired, which called me every time since you mentioned the number of confederate Mon monuments that are there. We have this graphic where today there are more than seventeen hundred confederate monuments that remain in public spaces at since Charleville one hundred thirteen of those confederate symbols have been renamed or removed across the United States. I want to absence. You brought up Tremaine Heather, hire her mother, Susan, bro. Understandably has been more public this week because it's the anniversary of Charlottesville and she gave an interview to MSNBC on Friday. Let's take a look at that. Can you talk at all about it, whether you think the president has helped or hurt progress in Charlottesville. I, I personally couldn't say one way or the other. I can tell you what David Duke and. Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler. And I believe Matthew high Bach have even said, and that is that the current administration has given them the go-ahead, giving them a thumbs up, giving them a wink in a nod. That's their words. Not mine, Tim, I mean, isn't that the issue here?.

"And in many ways, a lot of people because they didn't feel welcome. And when he said that to me, he asked me to think about it. I started thinking about it, and the short thing is we came to the conclusion after a long public process. They she came down, but he is actually the one that kind of put in my mind. You really have to think about this. You have to understand that you have to know about it and if you deserve it appropriately, then I you friend asking you to do what you need to do to make sure that you cost correct. What was clearly been a historical error and make the city of New Orleans if you believe she's open and welcoming a place that actually reflects that in her public square. And let's be clear. So you talked about who Robert Ely is, and most people know who he is. Most people know who Jefferson Davis Jefferson Davis was president of the confederacy Pierre goose. Stav to Tom Beauregard row quickly. Who is he? He GT Beauregard youngest. Another confederate he was from New Orleans actually, and he was a confederate general that that fought in in the war of the states and he fought on behalf of the confederacy. He was one of the three. Now, the reason these three monuments which owes because those are the three that will put them in by the way for people that don't remember much of this history. They weren't put up right after the civil war, many, many, many years later, sometimes in into the nineteen hundreds. They will put up by the daughters of the confederacy purposefully as a result of something called the cult of the loss. 'cause that's not my term. It's the term that they use the loss cause was the confederacies cause to have a better place for people to live in the purpose of maintaining slavery. And so you know, I just thought that as a matter of course, for the country as we as we move further ahead, I happen to believe that we're better together. I don't think that. We've ever had a really good comfortable discussion about race. The way that most white people have a discussion about races while we had the revolution, then we had the civil war and then we had the civil rights movement. Okay. That's good with done with that because we elected a black president. That's generally the depth of the discussion that we have about it. And it's if you have just spent some time talking to your African American fellow Americans about whether or not that is sufficient way to discuss that they will say no. And I just think that on race, what I've learned over time since the time that I was born until today is that you can't go around it. You can't go over to can't go to. You actually have to go through it and talk through it so that can be some reconciliation. And we really haven't had that. We're getting better at it as John Lewis. My hero says he is evidence as President Obama that we've made tremendous progress, but it's not. It's not. It is clear to me that we're not where we need to be, and we have to continue to talk about and get better at it before. The monument that was removed was the monument honoring the white league, which the southern poverty Law Center. I believe James, James Lewin called that monument quote the most overtly racist icon to white supremacy in the United States. This particular monument was called the liberty monument, and it was tucked away memorial had tried to take down a federal judge prohibited from doing it because some because at the time, the court opined that it was going to protect history and I wanted to take that one down particularly because that was a monument that was put up to honour the clan. It was put up to honour the people that killed police officers who apart of a multiracial police force that we're trying to put a riot in the late eighteen hundreds. And I just didn't want that anywhere in my city..
