    How Facebook Is Undermining Black Lives Matter
    In the summer of 2014 Michael Brown and unarmed black teenager was shot and killed by Darren Wilson, a white police officer.

    in Ferguson, Missouri. And for weeks.

    there were protests in Ferguson and across the country, and social media really became the primary organizing tool for the black lives matter movement.

    On.

    back in 2014 if you remember like you would go on Twitter or Facebook and almost every post in your feed or most of the posts in your feed would be some sort of call to action.

    people posting the black lives matter hashtag people sort of organizing support and supplies and and financial donations for this emerging civil rights movement.

    Right? And it feels like we're in a very similar moment right now. So what things look like on a Facebook, for instance, At this moment.

    well, they.

    look a little different.

    All lives matter.

    It's overwhelmingly posts that oppose black last matter.

    You gotta explain this to people.

    All lives matter.

    Calling it racist movement.

    The Black Lives Matter Foundation is apparently preparing for a quote. War on police.

    black lives. Matter is the con of the century and a sham.

    we go find out how many liberals have contributed Some could have possibly orchestrated. Yeah, and manufactured Ah, lot of star Ah, lot of that we see today about.

    how black lives matter is not a social justice movement. It is something far darker and more dangerous.

    E Kevin, How do you explain that? Because how did hashtag black lives matter? Go from being a very powerful organizing tool that helped give first to a movement to something that.

    The Sunday Read: 'The Condition of Black Life Is One of Mourning’

    in our bodies, no matter our race. ... The black Lives matter movement can be read as an attempt to keep Morning an open dynamic in our culture, because black lives exists in a state of precariousness. ... Unlike earlier black power movements that tried to fight or segregate for self preservation, black lives matter, Aligns with the dead.

    The Sunday Read: 'The Condition of Black Life Is One of Mourning’
    Weaken distance ourselves from this fact until the next horrific killing.

    but we won't be able to outrun it.

    Histories authority over us is not broken by maintaining a silence about its continued effects.

    A sustained state of national mourning for black lives is called for in order to point to the UN deniability of their devaluation.

    The hope is that recognition will break a momentum that laws haven't altered.

    Susie Jackson.

    Sharonda Coleman Singleton, Depayne Middleton, Doctor.

    Ethel Lee, Lance.

    the Reverend Daniel Lee Simmons Sr.

    The Reverend Clementa C. Pinckney.

    Cynthia Hurd.

    Tywanza Sanders and Myra Thompson.

    were murdered because they were black.

    It's extraordinary how ordinary our grief sits inside this fact.

    one friend said.

    I am so afraid every day.

    Her son's childhood feels impossible because he will have to be has to be so much more careful.

    Our morning this morning is in time with our lives.

    There is no life outside of our reality here.

    Is this something that could be seen and known by parents of white Children.

    This is the question that nags me.

    National mourning, as advocated by black lives. Matter is a motive, intervention and interruption that might itself be assimilated into the category of public annoyance.

    This is altogether possible.

    but also possible is the recognition that it's a lack of feeling for another, that is our problem.

    Grief then for these deceased others might align some of us for the first time with the living.

    This was recorded by autumn.

    Why Military Assistance for Ukraine Matters
    He started to turn more violent as the winter came on.

    By February, I was living in a hotel right on the square, and it became very tense.

    When I drove into the city in the early morning, I could see black smoke rising from the center of Kiev from burning cars. And there were a number of very violent confrontations over about two days in my February, in which the police eventually encroached on the square, overran much of the territory that the protesters had controlled and pushed it back to a few 100 square yards. And at the last moment, the protesters, out of desperation that started to burn tires and actually anything that was flammable to make a ring around this small, charred bit of pavement. That was the only remaining area that they control. That they sort of felt this was that was left of their dream of the independent Ukraine.

    And then in the final day.

    there was really a cacophony of gunfire.

    and there were snipers firing into the crowd.

    Theo. Over this hour and 1/2 70 people were killed and several 100 people were wounded.

    It was such a brutal moment that the Ukrainian elite and the international community realized that something that happened that could not be unaddressed. And there was a revolt in the Yanukovych government against the president and the police defected Wow! And betrayed their president and actually left the city center.

    And within hours the president fled the capital.

    So what happens next? Well, what happened next.

    A Rift Over Power and Privilege in the Women’s March
    All right, you guys. The women's march movement was supposed to bring down the president the Trump Administration instead, it may not survive to the second anniversary of his inauguration.

    and what happened.

    So Vanessa Ruble had invited these women of color to join the leadership team.

    and she imagined that they would be equal partners with her and they would put on the march together. But over time she came to believe that they were taking over the march, and then she was being signed light because she was Jewish. She says that she was told that we couldn't center the ones march on a Jewish woman because it would upset black lives matter. Some black lives matter Activists have made common cause with Palestinians were living under Israeli occupation. In fact, Linda sorcerer Carmen Perez and to make a Mallory, the three women of color who joined this team all have been to Palestine and have supported the cause of House didn't rights.

    And these women have some ties to a man named Louis Farrakhan, the head of the Nation of Islam.

    Talking about the wicked ones on in the Jewish community that run America, run the government, run the world owned the banks, the means of communication they are my enemies to.

    marry, is close to Farrakhan and one of Farrakhan's big messages is that Jewish people have profited off of black and brown bodies. So this is what Vanessa says. That first conversation was like.

    Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez have a very different story of what happened that night and that they said, Hey, were women of color were willing to join the leadership team, but only if you let us be leaders because we're not here as the help. We're not interested in being in the background. And if you want us to join with you, you gotta put us in charge. And they claim that Vanessa Rubel said, Well, I'm a Jewish woman. I don't have white privilege and that their response was yes.

    0 Hours, 11 Minutes, 46 Seconds

    The Legacy of Rachel Held Evans
    that might have become so desperate, unbearable that I would have just left the church altogether.

    the next. Really a big issue for her was around race.

    She would talk about race or write about things around people on the margins, whether it be racially or identity wise. Orientation.

    Around this time, Trayvon Martin had been shot and killed, and George Zimmerman, the man who had shot him. He was acquitted.

    Herpes on her blogged about Trayvon Martin and the verdict around complicity and doubt and her role as a white woman really, really commit.

    So you have this this moment when the loudest voices in the more mainstream evangelical culture were white men speaking out, Quite frankly, I think it's more of a sin problem than a skin problem. And when I hear people scream Black lives matter. I'm thinking, Of course they do. But all lives matter. But Rachel did the opposite here. Racial starts to give up this platform that she had created.

    using her platform for ah, black woman who speaks about racial justice using her platform for a native woman indigenous woman who's calling out right for indigenous people. If she did that all the time.

    she starts promoting black writers and speakers.

    I don't know that I had any, like, stay under the readers outside of my friends and family. Before Rachel held, Evans came along. Rachel introduced me to her literary agent. She introduced me to her speaking agent. She started a conference called White Christian and allowed me to be one of the first speakers of that conference, not only used her social platform she then created to whole event.

    and then brought us to be speak about these events. We were different races. Your different sexualities we were. We were just different.

    She had this rare sense for when she needed to be the one to take a step back until listen instead of speaking first.

    not only appreciate.

    my life, but like all life in general.

    so we first get there, were feeling kind of nervous about telling him why we actually came.

    But in this weird thing happens.

    he brings it up himself.

    Hey, says status. Instagram message from a girl. She accused him of killing someone.

    This was nooks, girlfriend desire.

    You know, the girlfriend. She pretty much said, uh, I have it right here.

    ‘1619,’ Episode 5: The Land of Our Fathers, Part 2

    And my answer to that is, Well, you don't live in the South. ... And you don't understand how the system works where you live. ... So, for example, you all sent me a case involving a sugar matter.

    0 Hours, 23 Minutes, 39 Seconds

    ‘1619,’ Episode 5: The Land of Our Fathers, Part 2
    And my answer to that always was.

    They've been doing the farming.

    in the South for years.

    Who do you think picks caught and white people? What a coincidence that the black farmer is qualified to farm millions of acres in America and make white America rich. But when he wants to do it on his own.

    he's not competent.

    Black farmers were doing the farming it would doing the actual work.

    So even though the government did not publicly admit wrongdoing, it ended up paying out nearly a $1,000,000,000 to nearly 16,000 farmers.

    the largest amount of money the government has ever pay to settle a discrimination case, but it's still an unresolved issue. More black farmers came forward who met the conditions of the original complaint and formed pick for two.

    And ultimately the underlying problem of discrimination remains.

    Now, there are.

    people who are gonna listen to this. They're going to say I don't believe that story.

    And my answer to that is, Well, you don't live in the South.

    and you are not a farmer. And you don't understand how the system works where you live. You know, you're probably listening to this and you're probably in the suburbs of Philadelphia or you live in Brooklyn or something, and your life is totally different. But that's how it worked. That's how it worked for decades. And the black farmer was abused in a way that was unheard of. Ah, and the preliminary culprit was his own government, her own government. So, for example, you all sent me a case involving a sugar matter.

    down South and.

    the case of June and Angie Provo's.

    Yeah, I mean, I read it. I think it's the same story. It involves a bank, and most of ours, you know, didn't but the points the same What's the difference between that story and thousands of Pickford's stories? What's the difference.

    The fact pattern is very similar. You know, a very qualified ah farmer who understands everything there is to know about sugar. Can't get ah, can't get alone.

    What Happened to Kamala Harris?

    As a matter fact, I know I didn't I didn't watch. ... These are folks who have grown up in the shadow of Confederacy their whole lives. ... Do you think that black men.

    0 Hours, 4 Minutes, 26 Seconds

    What Happened to Kamala Harris?
    As a matter fact, I know I didn't I didn't watch.

    They know the field is large and they know kind of generally who's up and who's down.

    And in every conversation we have with these voters, this is still the South Race keeps coming up.

    You have to remember the context for these largely older African American brothers.

    and.

    good law willing and the creek don't rise.

    Come March of next year, I'll be 70 years old. So I've seen a lot.

    and basically, I still see the world has been one great big plantation.

    These are folks who have grown up in the shadow of Confederacy their whole lives. They have lived under the brunt of Jim Crow, some of them, and that informs how they're making pragmatic political decisions moving forward within sound. Kanada, within the African American community way, don't want to take a chance.

    on someone that doesn't have a chance of beating.

    Trump.

    So things like 2008 and Barack Obama defied their wildest dreams. It was an anomaly to them, and so they're still ah, fear of risk that a lot of them associate with a person of color, leading the ticket.

    I hope she's electable.

    but we have to change the minds.

    of the people.

    Fear. That may be in this time where black voters are very worried about the Trump presidency.

    that a black candidate or a woman of color was too risky. Do you think that black men.

    have will have problems supporting a black woman can? Yes. Why do you think so.

    Man have been the head.

    Many people we speak don't mention as.

    an alternative deal bike. You know, I think that he's a good candidate. Joe Biden. Joe.

    How was her body? I've looked at Joe Biden. Why.

    There's a lot of reasons. My job. I then looms over South Carolina.
