Ron DeSantis Says He Will Send Migrants to Delaware if They Are Flown Into Florida on Secret Flights
"Ron DeSantis is despised by the left. Every time I see Ron DeSantis say something, I start thinking about him more and more as a presidential candidate. And I don't know what president Trump is going to decide to do. I know that Chris Christie, who we interviewed last week on the show, sat down with axios and he seems willing to take on Donald Trump. In 2024, I don't know how that will work out for governor Christie. President Trump reacted pointing out that Chris Christie left office with like a 19% approval rating as New Jersey governor. But Chris Christie's a fighter, you know? And there's a lot of things that we don't know what's going to happen how this is going to unfold, but I like Ron DeSantis on the national stage. Listen to what he said about the news that Biden was flying illegals into Florida. This is governor desantis. This is why so many people like this guy's message. You know, my view would be, why don't we if they're going to come here? We'll provide buses and provide them. I will send them to Delaware and do that. I mean, if he's not going to support the border being secured, then he should be able to have everyone there. So we will do whatever we can in that regard. And we are absolutely going to do everything we can. That's a good idea, governor desantis, if Biden is flying illegals into Florida in the middle of the night, on these planes full of ship them back to Delaware. Let them go to Wilmington. Let them camp out at Joe Biden's
Joe Biden Doesn't Care About the Border
"Now Joe Biden has asked what about the border Joe And I wonder this too not just because it's a throwaway line Doesn't he want to take a look at what his good work has done down on the border No he doesn't want to look at it at all He doesn't want to look at it He doesn't want to know from anything And neither do most of the media cut 19 go Do you have plans to visit the southern border I've been there before and I haven't I mean I know it well I guess I should go down but by the way he's a liar again He hasn't been there He drove through there in 2008 He didn't visit there He drove by the border in 2008 Now I've been at the border mister producer I think I've flown over the border several times But this is what he says and he's very busy you know he's dealing with hurricanes and the damage done by hurricanes and you know he's having to he's having to spend our money HHS and he's has international play of flights You know he's very very busy He doesn't have time to go to the border It's time to go to his home In Wilmington about 20 times he has time to go to his home in the beach In Delaware Bethany beach I think it is He has time to do whatever he wants Except go to the

"They vowed to overthrow it You you also point to the fact that that not only was the narrative controlled then it's been controlled throughout history because because of the historical record There was plenty of Written record of the perpetrators trying to justify their actions but not not many records from from black vote because they were being killed they had to flee town. The black run newspaper was burned down. And so that. Has i think according to your writing contributed to this What was an inability for the community to to sort of come together and reconcile over this but before we get to that. I wanted to ask you. How did you approach research for for this project. Yeah this is different. I've written to other nonfiction books but I participated in the events in whitten's events and interview people. I can't interview anybody for this book. So every single line in that book came from document somewhere so this was really a library job. I mean research in libraries and universities and institutions And as you mentioned There was a real challenge to get black viewpoints whereas the the whites were very proud of what they had done in in wrote a luminous lee about this great victory Black as you pointed out. We're running for their lives. The black newspaper was burned down. So i really had to dig to get black accounts but fortunately they were black ministers and lawyers who survived and wrote memoirs wrote accounts of of what had happened The other interesting thing that happened is when these hundreds and thousands of black families were driven at gunpoint and forced to leave wilmington wherever they showed up they would be interviewed by reporters from black leadership newspapers so you had contemporary accounts of people describing something that happened just a few days earlier so that was really helpful And plus alex manley whose the editor of the black newspaper that was burnt. He and his wife Left a written after his wife wrote a series of letters to her sons fifties at laid out everything so between all that i was able to get the black point of view and avoid writing a book that was told completely even the white perspective. Yeah and at very balanced and You know. I just appreciate the depth of detail that you were able to bring to those pages you also talk about one hundred years later An attempt at Planning some sort of centennial around around this and that that didn't go well how how have white folks in wilmington north carolina. Sort of handled this legacy. How how have they dealt with this baggage. Yeah very interesting. Yeah they was as as you mentioned the university of north carolina wilmington on the hundredth anniversary. Really tried to bring black and white. The senate's together. They had church choirs and they had meetings and seminars and things are going reasonably well and then Someone brought up the idea of reparations and the whites just shut down and revolted and everything kind of unraveled from there Which was too bad but you have a town. That in eighteen ninety eight was fifty six percent black today. It's eighteen percent black and the black middle class was wiped out so african americans. There have very little political or economic power. And you're completely dominated by whites who i it's. It's hard to generalize but many whites just say basically. This happened one hundred years ago. We weren't there. Don't blame us. This is over and forgotten race. Relations are fine here. Why are you stirring up All this trouble in racial hatred that just forget about it and move on right Obviously the black ovulation does not want right right. i mean what. They're what they're doing. They're ignoring for the descendants Ignoring the generational wealth that was created From demolishing a black middle class. This is a fascinating read. I can't wait to finish it on about halfway through. I really appreciate you coming on to talk to us about it. Were there any. Are there any parallels to be drawn between these kinds of incidents Back then and contemporary race relations today. Well very quickly. The january six insurrection parallel with with this information and the big lie in ninety eight The white said that there was a stolen election. The election that brought black people the power was stolen of course donald trump Said there was a stolen election. And i guess the other parallel was that If you want to preserve your way of life from the threat by these other both in eighteen ninety eight and january six that you have to fight and if Violence is necessary. Okay or it's regrettable but it's okay because you're fighting For patriotism and for your way alive in both in both instances that was the message that was given to the writers. I was shocked at how easy it was to incite people to violence just with a speech. Yeah david thanks for talking to us about wilmington's lie the murderous coup of eighteen ninety eight in the rise of white supremacy and again. Congratulations on the pulitzer. Thank you joe. It was wonderful talking to you and thanks for having me on..

Thank you for stopping by the telephone to talk to us about Wilmington wilmington's lie the murderous coup of eighteen ninety eight and the rise of white supremacy. It is a fascinating read. I let me say congratulations on the pulitzer thank. You must be exciting. Oh it was shocking and surprising. I'm still not sure it's really true. Well tell us a mistake. I don't think so this is. This is great work. Tell us about So i'm familiar through through popular culture. I should say not through anything learned in school. Familiar with the nineteen twenty one tulsa oklahoma massacre familiar with the nineteen three rosewood. Florida massacre. Tell us about the people. The black people black community in wilmington north carolina in eighteen nineties. it was a remarkable period In north carolina of wilmington was the largest city in north carolina and it was the only large southern city with a majority. Black population is fifty six percent black. it was probably the most Integrated city in the south of they were black men in positions of power the three of the ten city councilman where we're black men and ten of the twenty six policemen and they were black magistrates who actually ruled in court over white defendants and there were the postmaster. The treasurer the jailer. The corner raleigh. All black men there was a thriving black middle class And then a really solid Class of black professionals doctors and lawyers and professors and ultimate the this was more than the white supremacists could bear in. The white supremacists had been dominating black people in dominating wilmington since before the civil war in three reconstruction and Because of an election that Where black voters joined with white republicans of white supremacists we're faced with Black men in position the power that they had to answer to and they weren't going to let it stand so essentially aside from Racial hatred this was a power grab in in political in political circles absolutely was the was a white supremacist. Ku yes so. Did this happening in eighteen. Ninety eight in your opinion or research somehow influence those activities in tulsa in rosewood. Or or all these all sort of separate isolated horrible periods in our history. I think in some ways. I it served as a model and a bit of inspiration. What was unique about wilmington from all the other so-called quote race riots in our nation's history. All of those almost all of them were spontaneous outbursts of white rage. That had been building for a while and usually precipitated by some sort of contact between a black man. in a white woman. Such as the black elevator operator in tulsa and the white woman Wilmington was unique in that it was premeditated and planned over a period of months announced beforehand. So it was in no way spontaneous. it was planned Even selected the date It was completely different. But i think it did serve as As inspiration for white supremacists across the south as it showed that white people could murder black men. Keep them from voting removed from office. Overthrow government and face no consequences. No one was ever tried or or much less convicted. No one was ever held accountable. So i really do. Think that wasn't inspiration to white writes princess across the south and really served as as a template for how to oppress the black vote and keep Black men out of office and keep voting and they they attempted to not attempt today were successful at controlling narratives are about black people creating issues where none existed and that they were contributing to crime overlooking crime stoked fears of of raping white women. And we see that throughout history but it it really took hold their In wilmington yeah. There was a very impressive ineffective sake news campaign and at the time as you know. Newspapers were king. It was really the only source of knows and the biggest newspaper in the state was in raleigh. It was run by white supremacists name josephus daniels and he portrayed a black men as quote black beast rate that was the term used and he reported falsely that there was an epidemic of rapes of white women by black men. He just made up stories of of rapes. That didn't occur and at the same time he also told his white readers. That black men were not intelligent enough Or capable enough to vote intelligently much less whole public office and then he ran a campaign to convince whites that the government in wilmington which was blacks and whites was a corrupt and ineffective and that as you mentioned earlier black authorities were not Cracking down on crime by black men by black man but we're oppressing whites and they called it negro rule and negro domination and.

Ep2: Chatting It Up With Drought's Hannah Black & Megan Petersen
"So we come back from multiple callbacks, 'cause we were like, there's no way. Things don't work out like this for us. But it just did. And so casting was really, really fun. And everyone ended up just being local to Wellington. Because like you guys are saying there's so much talent outside of Atlanta. And LA and New York. There's so much talent in those places for sure. But the best roles at least for our film were right here. So. Yeah, exactly. And sometimes that works even better because again, like you're saying you got to have sort of a family on set because if you don't have that relationship that you're having fun, you know, because I think it should be about having fun being professional, but if you're not having fun, I mean, then it's not, you know, the production value is not there either. Long amounts of hours with each other. And very hot conditions. So we'll talk about weather, right? So when we were following it, I thought you would talk about hot conditions. There's always something that happens on the set. There's always a setback there's always something, so maybe you can, you know, most people talk about, you know, oh yeah, we had this, we had that, but you girls had something bigger, maybe you can tell us about that. Yes, because what's so funny, I'll tell you is that we had all the typical things like our grip truck got stuck in the sand, our ice cream truck broke down. And we rarely ever talk about those challenges because they are all, you know, I guess overshadowed by the fact that this film is about no rain and on day 12 of production we had to stop everything because a hurricane for hurricane that category four hurricane. It was headed towards Wilmington. And not moving. And he was coming right towards our city. So we had to stop on day 12 with an 18 day shoot and everyone evacuated to places like Charlotte or Atlanta. And we were stuck outside of our town for two weeks. I didn't know what we were going to come to when we came back. Because when Lincoln essentially became an island, it flooded everywhere. We weren't sure if our locations were going to be okay. And not even just for our films, but because those people who came our family do, and we didn't want their businesses to damage. There was a lot and I was also going out of the country during that time. So amazing Hannah, somehow put the Tetris of our crew to schedule back together and everyone was able to come back two months later to film. But then it was 44°. Okay. So one question about that, I mean, so when you have something like that, I said back. It's very hard on your motivation. It's very hard because now you're like, what am I going to do? And it takes a toll, especially if you're an artist, you're trying to create something that's meaningful, and now you have a big setback. How do you bounce back from that emotionally? You know, just say, you know, I just keep doing it. Keep doing it. Besides that you have the responsibility of finishing, but just more in the sense of like a personal, you know, no. The question. Hold on, but you think that's okay. Like, how did we do that? I think part of it is just we have invested so much already. And I think we could say just ourselves invested, but then when we look at our crew and our cast and all the people that contributed to this crowdfunding campaign and shared our film like when we are doing our campaign, it's like it didn't feel like it was our movie and felt like it was our communities movie. And so it had to, we had to finish it. We had to keep on going, even though we were tired, because not only us but so many people aboard their heart and soul into making this happen. And it just, it just wasn't really an option to be like, well, you know, we tried our best. And we had a lot, I mean, a hurricane was big, but we also hit some equally challenging things during that production after production before production. Just a lot of lifestyle, hard stuff in between. And so it's kind of like, I don't know. We just kind of had, I think also 'cause we're a partnership. So when one person is tired, the other person can lift them up and vice versa. Megan, what do you think? Yeah, the thing I was thinking of is a lot of times those setbacks I think we used as motivation to be like, this will not stop us. And it almost made us get more fire. Every once in a while it gets to you. And I think that that's when it's okay to call up your friend or like I got to just call it Hannah. And sometimes we're like, I can't do it today. Like today I take a break from the movie. Because maybe these are a can be at least a nonstop thing you're working on. You can really get burnt out on it. And the thing we didn't want to do is get so tired that we made a wrong decision. Out of just because we felt fired. So the process of making the movie took longer than I think some do, but a lot of that is in part because we allowed ourselves to take a breath if we needed it. Yeah, that's extremely important. I mean, you pretty much said it like you have to step back and do something fun, relax and then come back to it, right? I mean, that was guilty. I feel guilty. Exactly. Well, I mean, I was going to ask you about what your advice for filmmakers was, but I can not set out, but let me make sure that's where it doesn't have another question. And then I'll ask my final question that you girls go with just show the trader one more time do a little plug for Amazon Prime because I know that it's on Amazon Prime and then go from there. I'll check well also if we have any questions on our site. It was exploring your social media. And I was interested because you put it on your Facebook our hopes, raise autism awareness, brand jobs to our community, provide opportunities for women to live if you want it to elaborate on those. Yeah. I think it was really cool. We were able to pay our crew and we were really proud of that. It wasn't a huge amount. But we were also able to give them an interest in the film. So once the film makes money, our hope is that it does because we don't have investors. It is our crew and our cast and we can give that money back to them. In 2018 when we filmed our town was in a really big world for any filmmaking happening in the area. And it kept everyone energized. I think it kept. It gave people opportunities for roles they hadn't begun before. And now they've moved on to studio productions in our doing those roles. So I think got that goal and yes, number one is to raise autism awareness and acceptance in this film to get people talking about it. And to just promote the message that there is no such thing as normal. And we are here to accept each other but also ourselves. And then finally, from when it in film, you know, one of the reasons we set out to even write female characters is because we are actors first. And we auditioned for a lot of roles that were very grateful to audition for their typically very small and they could be like dumb blond or quirky white dress and we're like, ah, women are so much more than that. And so our hope is that people can see two female characters interacting that just have a family relationship and the complexities that come behind that. So those are our hopes. Thanks for reading those. I clearly asked about them. That's awesome with those goals that you have for this film. I was just amazing. Yeah, and I think that's important. That's very important to have goals. I mean, other than that, I think you have given great advice throughout the whole talk right now, which is really what we want to do. And I think you couldn't have said it better that, you know, you're doing this for yourself. Obviously, but also people get opportunities because they do a project. You know, like not a lot of times, you know, people are just doing something in the last 6 because something there's always someone watching, right? I always say that. There's always someone looking at your staff and then seeing what's out there and it's great that you're actors or maybe someone got a production somewhere out of that. And I think that's the most rewarding experience that you can get as a filmmaker to really see somebody in your film, making it as well. So we're going to do a little plug. How do we find your film? So I'll put it on the comments after the link, but yeah, so you can find drought on Amazon Prime. This week actually we're running a special where you can rent for 4.99 and purchase for 9.99. But then at the end of this week, you'll go back up to its normal price. You should just buy it then, right? You know? Yeah. And if you like it, it would mean so much if you guys rated it and murdered you. I'm an honest review. You know, that's really important to us. So yeah, it was on prem. Okay. All right. So this is I promise this is the last question, okay? So this is just if you were to tell yourself before you even started this project. One thing that you would have done differently, maybe just or you would have told yourself before you got this project going like that, maybe yeah, we could have gotten different at different ways. You know, like, oh, sorry, Meg's. You know, you go first. I was thinking you have sex. Okay. I feel like everything was supposed to happen the way it was. So I wouldn't change anything because had learned so much. The learning curve on this project was huge because every single role that Megan and I stepped into was new. But I will say if I could go back and tell myself something that I'll continue to tell myself for the next projects that we do, I really struggled on set and only Megan really knows this. As a director, because I felt like I was completely under qualified, which I was and still am. But I felt like I needed to know everything. Especially technical stuff, which I was not familiar with at all. And so I really got in my head when I was in director mode that I just was so inadequate and it made it was just really unhealthy. Unhealthy thoughts, you know, of like, I'm not good enough or like, no one's gonna listen to me, all that stuff. It's such a waste of time. And so what, maybe I don't know all the answers, but that's why you have a team. So I think I would go back and tell myself just chill. Just trust your gut. You know that other people are working just as hard, you don't have to know the answers, and that's why you have all these great people with you. So yeah, I think that's maybe something that I go back and tell myself. Intel others, you don't have to know everything, just take it one step at a time. That's perfect. Yeah. You know, it's going to sound cheesy. It's mine. It's about the same. I would think in my modes though if I don't know something, I try to learn everything I can about it. And sometimes you just don't have the capacity. I don't need to know everything that the gaffer is doing. As I do more or sound or the first AC or DIT, you know, I wanted to know everyone was doing. I think that comes from a good place. And I think what Hannah's talking about comes from a place of wanting to be a good team, team member. But being a good team member is sometimes releasing responsibility and letting people do what they're there to do. And as we do more projects or as you can do more projects out there, you'll learn more and more each time. And you'll feel, I think more like you have more knowledge of everything going on. It's okay if you don't. That's perfect. I think that's perfect by this way. I mean, pretty much what we've been saying and we're gonna keep saying it and we're gonna try to do this little segment as much as we can find filmmakers that are doing great things in this area and outside this area because I think we're all connected anyway. So maybe one, maybe one day we'll get to work in a project together, and definitely. Ladies, we wish are the best and the best of luck on your future and it looks like it's gonna be a pretty good one. I mean, you have a great movie that I think is going to inspire not only filmmakers, but just anyone looking to just be creative.

White House mulls executive action on gun control as legislation stalls in Senate
"And Wilmington, Delaware as he weighs whether to take executive action on Gun control. NPR's Windsor Johnston reports, Biden and several congressional Democrats are renewing their push for stricter measures following the mass shootings in Colorado and Georgia. President Biden is ramping up the pressure on the Senate to take up two measures passed by the House that would strengthen and expand background checks for gun sales. The legislation faces an uphill climb in the deeply divided chamber. It would need the support of at least 10 Republicans to overcome a filibuster. It's also received some pushback from some moderate Senate Democrats. The White House on Friday said Biden is prepared to take executive action to tighten gun control measures. Press secretary Jen Psaki did not offer an exact time frame on when those orders would move off of the president's desk. Windsor Johnston. NPR

Thank you for that kind introduction. I'm excited to be with you. It up this conversation. This is so fun. So i our colleagues a few years ago and what i always was just so struck by. Aaron is how humble you are and how even though in many -cations. I've been in the room with you when you were the smartest person in the room you never played. That never made that something that was even known to other people other than by the way you express yourself so getting to say all the things that you are was really exciting. Because if i were you. I would lead. Yeah when you lay it out you know it's like you look back and you got a lot more done than you than you thought right. I think you and i are probably people that are always oriented to the future right looking forward like okay. There's this mountain but it is worth taking some time and taking stock and looking back at the mountains behind his. I mean in a huge way. They kind of got you. You are right and defined you in some ways Is interesting doesn't cool things. And i'm glad our cross our paths cross In our last adventure right the high growth entrepreneurial got to work with tech work with people so ever so fun now. You stop me. If i'm not allowed to tell the story but what i love when we worked together is just the different and unique viewpoint that you always brought to things because you are very analytical you see things from a profitability standpoint where i am completely go with your gut and i remember us sitting and talking about the likelihood of startups like encino where we were them being successful and you knew the probability of any company doing adventure like that being successful. Do you remember that conversation. do bigly. and i'm sure it was born out of being overly analytical. Right everything's yes about. This occurs the gift that occurs. Then be i just come from business. School where i just kind of made it. My mission like tried to distill. What worked why did things work. And some of these businesses and so the numbers for failure is so starring in front of mine. Be i remember that it was amazing to me. Because you had the the actual probability you just off the top of your head. Well you know april on average. This is the kind of success rate companies. Like this can see. And i was shocked because i don't analyze in that same way and i thought yeah i feel like it's going to go gangbusters. That's great. what is that based on. And that's where i was like. Oh my gut. Like i kind of feel like it's gonna be great gravid but you're right you know i. It turned out you're right in. The statistics are just numbers. Right to help you make decisions but at the end of the day. Like gotta turn around and say well you know. Seventy percent chance of rain are brought this coldness umbrella and it didn't rain. I based right. I can't be mad at like the weather may under the umbrella for it not having rain I mean you're right in like even pull the curtain back a little further. When i was leaving business school ios app military went to business school. The kind of kick the can down the road and it was like okay. Now i gotta get a up job. And dr teeny encino presented itself and it was based in wilmington is coastal carolina. There are other opportunities right in bigger cities maybe more mainstream companies and as tomar my wife and friends and i was like you know i think they have enough money to like make go at it for two years which kind of that met my criteria for like. Let's do it. Sounds like a probably won't work. When when i say probably the bases the base word of that is probabilistically. Great but you know good people. I've met enough. You know amazing. People he worked with they had enough for two years. I figure i wouldn't have the move for de year is in the military that's forever right commanded that that's a full tour of duty right and then so you're like okay. Then i'll play the game to see the next car. You know that's dell that's kind of how i looked at it so people always all the time. Were like remember when you said that things probably never going to work. And but that's not what you said that so it's interesting when you clarify it right. You're like the probability is against it. But i'm here. We shows i believe in it. And i just loved that conversation because i feel like every opinion that you express is very well thought out. It is very backed by fact if you will and since it was so opposite of the way that i tend to operate i was drawn to it and just that made you seem even more genius to me regardless of the fact that you also i think are genius. I don't know if you have a mensa card and you probably wouldn't admit it if you do so one of the things that you also talked to me about. And it actually gets us to this journey that you're on now was what you learned when you were in business school about acquiring a business and i'd love free to shared that with the listeners. Because if you remember you. And i stayed after some training and you had me completely captivated you wrote this out on a whiteboard and i still have that photo in my phone today. We we were white boarding it. I remember it in your being so generous listening to Iran about it but basically went to business school and really had no had no expectations other than just really interested in technology. And of course being the twenty first century. That'd be plenty of those opportunities. But i didn't know what it would look like in so as you can imagine like isn't school tends to skew a little younger. It's a bit more trendy kind of follows these trends and a trend does your tack and startups in you know software companies the facebooks cetera. The uber's everyone is kind of there in the lab thinking the next uber to invent right And we those two older grumpier professors that were like you know you guys are all supposed to be smarter. 'cause you're here in grad school but you guys are chasing the dumbest opportunity possible like what are the. What are the odds. Anyone of you you know will will will embiid. Any one of these unicorn had companies in a stop unicorn hunt you know he kind of like y'all did us for twenty minutes and then we're like what. What are we supposed to be doing. He's like do you realize that there's over one hundred thousand profitable businesses that throw off actual cash flows all around and you walk by him every day. You probably use their services or your parents user services or you. Frequent business that uses their services and You know they're owned by baby. Boomers are retiring at record pace. They've gotta find some way to transfer all this well in you know you guys. Aren't that smart. But your pride smart enough to run these things and you know instead of going and doing this in you know having a lower risk you know for economic success ask and getting to work on fun business problems and help people change their lives. You guys are like trying to invent magical things that don't exist yet and so it made me take a look and stop and say you know i. I guess i had this. You know a little bit of a career in the military before says a little older had family had kids can watch my parents age and wanting to be there. You know a economically for my family and thought i could be it wasn't is not a burden. Obscene is consideration and then You know kind of going back to the the probabilities that you talked about. And so anyway. I ended up spending over year studied under these guys. This kind of little known concept of looking at a very small business. That is functional. But you know for one reason. Add a or the other. The owner needs to sow and putting deal together to take over that business running it. We're probably twenty thirty forty years younger than the owner so he could probably modernize bit but for the most part. Just don't break it. Run a really good business blocking and tackling and you know living your life that way so it was it was really a shift. It was like a paradigm shift for me that. I'm still kind of unpacking.

People here are more politically engaged, Unusual, especially after what happened. With so many cities around the country. Wilmington saw nightly protests demanding justice over the killings of George Floyd and Briana Taylor. I think you also saw people in the community that weren't just black, but there were brown and indigenous and never, why, saying my another's enough? That was a big change for the city has been racially divided for a long time for some reasons you might expect. And some you can't imagine. You know, it wasn't something that was Talk to me when I was in school. But then when I look at how Wilmington Systems are, like, strategically place, so that communities within will Munson don't ever see each other. Don't ever interact with each other. They're people who grow up in the North side who will never live in Wrightsville Beach. And there are people in Rice Beach who's never been to the north side.

A black community still feels it even though it may not live consciously in your mind that your body remembers and that your family's bodies remember in there the shama of knowing that there were people having in swamps because there were white mobs that we're looking to kill them for no other reason, but the color of their skin like that lives in somewhere deep inside of you.

This is not a race right? I have to be deemed a massacre, And it also created a blueprint for embedding structural racism and inequity in American life. Even after slavery was outlawed, the white supremacists who carried out the COO created a false narrative that lasted almost 100 years. When I learned about what happened here, I realized that Wilmington has so much to say about why things are the way they are. Before we get started.

"From Wilmington, Delaware. And our next guest, The Reverend Leah Daughtry is a former chief of staff of the Democratic Party. She was CEO of the Democratic National Convention in 2008 and 2016. And she joins us now to talk about Camilla Harrison what she will bring To the ticket. Reverend Daughtry. Welcome. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. What does she bring to the ticket? In your view? Why is Camilla Harris the rate pick? Well, you know, she brings obviously the ability to run strong campaign, she says. In the Senate. AST first time senator from the state of California She understands the criminal justice system, which is so badly in need of reform. Right now she brings the ability to connect with various communities that the Democratic Party means and she brings vision to to the Joe Biden ticket to really help and support and uplift. The things that Vice President Biden wants to do it. She's going to be an excellent fantastic running mate. And, of course, the thing that I'm most excited about as a black woman is that he brings all of us that her lived experience to this ticket in a way that is historic that we've never seen before. In this country. Not something to get lost in. This is that this is for the Democrats, the first woman to be to run for vice president and the first African American woman. So it's not the first woman we had General Ferraro II bigger partner, Absolutely right. S o to follow up on something you said, though, which is which is her ability and what you can do in the campaign in terms of turning out vote, she ran an unsteady presidential campaign. I think it's fair to say last year. She was also a rival to Biden Exchange sharp words, How did they manage to sort through that? Well, I think they're both not novice. Neither is a novice politician and we know how campaigns go after all of Joe Biden grand against Barack Obama. In 2008 and was and took some hard jabs. But in the end, you know they were able to come together and recognize what each brought to the campaign and the value that Joe Biden would bring the Barack Obama in the value that Senator Harris will blame to Joe Biden what's while her campaign in the cast of thousands Didn't necessarily break through. What we were able to see is empathy and the way that she connected with people on the road as she was campaigning and end the debate. She's a shock debater. I can't wait for the pence debate. She's also she knows the issues. She knows the policies and when I said she brings voters, I mean the millions of African American voters that just got really energized. And are ready to go out and work to make Joe Biden, the president in November. We have a minute or so left, and I do want to follow up on something else you mentioned, which is her track record in law enforcement, a track record that has already attracted a lot of many questions. How much scrutiny are you expecting on that front, particularly in this moment when there is so much focus on the question of law enforcement in policing? The ethnic should get appropriate amount of look, look see, as we also we know a lot of it already from her presidential campaign, but there's so much more that we don't know. And so I'm looking forward to people really learning more about her. Ah worked to get people's records spun so that men could have a life after law enforcement deal with truancy and a decent and fair way. Ah, no, I think it's a conversation that this country is ready to have. And I think she's the best person to have. It is Reverend Leah Daughtry. She's a former chief of staff of the Democratic Party.

"Wilmington hundred twenty one hundred one for Eline. Tesla's? Have you guys know that UNC Wilmington did beat Hofstra? Very recently. How has a player that's probably going to be in the NBA Winker about? This. I mean, this do can light up the scoreboard. You have just like thirty a game. This is a good conference. Charleston's obviously at home. They went to the tournament last year. They've been good for a while northeastern. You know, I'm gonna go Chok and go harsher to get it done here. But I will say there's not much. I would say the three leaders in the conference. There's not much that you know would change from team to team. They're very very close. Go just because that do can ball out of his fucking mind, and I'm assuming he's going to have Jordan leg moments. And then when he goes into the NCA tournament, we should keep an eye on this tube. I'm telling you. I'm going northeastern northeastern is the team to beat in the colonial conference Solomon major. They returned in a bunch of starters. This is kind of their time to shine. I could see them being the the mid major that sneaks in. And maybe maybe steals a win in the tournament or leased a nice cover. They play solid defense and the colonials not known for defense. It's usually nice scoring conference. So I'll take northeastern at plus one eighty. Yeah. I mean half should plays. No defense. I'm gonna go at the home team kind of home team. Gimme Charleston fifty on the bucket. They can play a little defense though, slow down a little bit little dog action. And most importantly, I think just I I like I like anyone against this off. I'm not playing Hofstra. Plus one twenty there's no Koby. There is no value in playing the chalk here. Yeah. I mean, I'm just saying I think they're gonna win it. I'm not saying. Hofsaess kind of a tough road. I think for this conference. I think is going to win this thing. But I look any of those three could. So if you want to do the value play, obviously Charleston because they're at home getting to fifty I think do the correct play take my northeastern huskies Charleston's better northeastern. Well, we'll let the courts decide that the court of conference play. Wow..
