fresh day tomorrow and ░░░░░░░░ re not going to ░░░░░░░░ the fight Pastor Jamal ░░░░░░░░ thank you I appreciate ░░░░░░░░ Thank you The pastor ░░░░░░░░ something I would like ░░░░░░░░ add a footnote to ░░░░░░░░ you think about the ░░░░░░░░ where this is happening ░░░░░░░░ turns out that Freddie ░░░░░░░░ s family filed a ░░░░░░░░ against the man who ░░░░░░░░ the apartment they rented ░░░░░░░░ negligence because they had ░░░░░░░░ exposed to lead poisoning ░░░░░░░░ had levels of lead ░░░░░░░░ their blood nearly double ░░░░░░░░ minimum That settled Joining ░░░░░░░░ now Michael Eric Dyson ░░░░░░░░ at Georgetown Michael you ░░░░░░░░ in the pews today ░░░░░░░░ the funeral What was ░░░░░░░░ service like It was ░░░░░░░░ You just spoke to ░░░░░░░░ of the most articulate ░░░░░░░░ people who delivered a ░░░░░░░░ eulogy that not only ░░░░░░░░ about the pain and ░░░░░░░░ face off that has ░░░░░░░░ that community That urban ░░░░░░░░ has been besieged by ░░░░░░░░ tragedy and such negligence ░░░░░░░░ he spoke brilliantly to ░░░░░░░░ He encouraged his listeners ░░░░░░░░ to be boxed in ░░░░░░░░ stereotypes and be boxed ░░░░░░░░ by the kind of ░░░░░░░░ that have been arbitrarily ░░░░░░░░ upon them but to ░░░░░░░░ free of them and ░░░░░░░░ to people there to ░░░░░░░░ to the next level ░░░░░░░░ so it was an ░░░░░░░░ testimony to the resilient ░░░░░░░░ of African American people ░░░░░░░░ in the midst of ░░░░░░░░ and trauma in the ░░░░░░░░ of the horrible depression ░░░░░░░░ can be visited upon ░░░░░░░░ population when there seems ░░░░░░░░ be no way out ░░░░░░░░ see them rise up ░░░░░░░░ and be determined to ░░░░░░░░ forward is extraordinary What ░░░░░░░░ also important the reverend ░░░░░░░░ Jackson delivered insight into ░░░░░░░░ forces of oppression that ░░░░░░░░ besieged that urban terrain ░░░░░░░░ brilliantly as Dr Bryant ░░░░░░░░ He talked about not ░░░░░░░░ the fact the ways ░░░░░░░░ the Baltimore ravens and ░░░░░░░░ with their tax exempt ░░░░░░░░ and being tremendous goodies ░░░░░░░░ stay in the city ░░░░░░░░ you have the urban ░░░░░░░░ contrasted to the extraordinary ░░░░░░░░ for some people This ░░░░░░░░ what Dr Bryant was ░░░░░░░░ about when they talk ░░░░░░░░ the extraordinary rise of ░░░░░░░░ just not the equitable ░░░░░░░░ of it The great ░░░░░░░░ Luther king Jr whose ░░░░░░░░ crusade of nonviolence said ░░░░░░░░ are the language of ░░░░░░░░ unheard He said I ░░░░░░░░ to condemn of what ░░░░░░░░ going on in the ░░░░░░░░ city of Watts and ░░░░░░░░ and many urban cities ░░░░░░░░ America without also talking ░░░░░░░░ the contrasting and broader ░░░░░░░░ against which that violence ░░░░░░░░ pitched He talked about ░░░░░░░░ American government In our ░░░░░░░░ I think we have ░░░░░░░░ talk about state brutality ░░░░░░░░ police people are the ░░░░░░░░ immediate emblems of the ░░░░░░░░ of the state to ░░░░░░░░ them or subvert them ░░░░░░░░ white Americans who feel ░░░░░░░░ when they see the ░░░░░░░░ or hear the sirens ░░░░░░░░ they don t feel ░░░░░░░░ sense of horror or ░░░░░░░░ They don t feel ░░░░░░░░ oh my my life ░░░░░░░░ be ended They don ░░░░░░░░ feel like when a ░░░░░░░░ stops them they will ░░░░░░░░ It seems irrational to ░░░░░░░░ except for those of ░░░░░░░░ that have been subjected ░░░░░░░░ this arbitrary form of ░░░░░░░░ So that forces us ░░░░░░░░ come to grips with ░░░░░░░░ that doesn t happen ░░░░░░░░ there s violence Your ░░░░░░░░ our commentary would not ░░░░░░░░ in Baltimore talking about ░░░░░░░░ slow terror of expulsions ░░░░░░░░ schools Rising rates of ░░░░░░░░ poisoning The export of ░░░░░░░░ to places across the ░░░░░░░░ that have no ability ░░░░░░░░ refuel and recycle that ░░░░░░░░ back here So when ░░░░░░░░ put all that together ░░░░░░░░ s easy to point ░░░░░░░░ of analysis and shoot ░░░░░░░░ with the bullets of ░░░░░░░░ condemnation instead of saying ░░░░░░░░ have to together find ░░░░░░░░ way out of this ░░░░░░░░ me show you the ░░░░░░░░ that was evidence debt ░░░░░░░░ the treats One of ░░░░░░░░ people that was interviewed ░░░░░░░░ Take a listen What ░░░░░░░░ it like seeing all ░░░░░░░░ Crazy crazy I can ░░░░░░░░ believe we re out ░░░░░░░░ like this You see ░░░░░░░░ brothers down here at ░░░░░░░░ man March What do ░░░░░░░░ see across the street ░░░░░░░░ think our young brothers ░░░░░░░░ hooligans You see somebody ░░░░░░░░ just came out ofliquer ░░░░░░░░ with a case of ░░░░░░░░ That s because he ░░░░░░░░ it It s crazy ░░░░░░░░ me Are these people ░░░░░░░░ Baltimore or out of ░░░░░░░░ To be honest everybody ░░░░░░░░ here is from the ░░░░░░░░ right here They are ░░░░░░░░ because these people don ░░░░░░░░ have anything Everybody will ░░░░░░░░ something by their own ░░░░░░░░ Your response Michael Look ░░░░░░░░ s enough of that ░░░░░░░░ that people say look ░░░░░░░░ re not thugs or ░░░░░░░░ we re not given ░░░░░░░░ to this kind of ░░░░░░░░ chaos that urban terror ░░░░░░░░ But what s interesting ░░░░░░░░ ve been watching the ░░░░░░░░ playoffs Sometimes somebody will ░░░░░░░░ somebody in the ribs ░░░░░░░░ referee won t see ░░░░░░░░ but the person that ░░░░░░░░ the referee sees and ░░░░░░░░ the flag What we ░░░░░░░░ t have commentary about ░░░░░░░░ the theft of capital ░░░░░░░░ these urban post industrial ░░░░░░░░ What we don t ░░░░░░░░ is capital flight What ░░░░░░░░ don t see is ░░░░░░░░ fact that many police ░░░░░░░░ live in York Pennsylvania ░░░░░░░░ come to Baltimore and ░░░░░░░░ revenue from that city ░░░░░░░░ they don t give ░░░░░░░░ to the communities and ░░░░░░░░ of there that s ░░░░░░░░ sense that these people ░░░░░░░░ disposable So yes you ░░░░░░░░ the utter chaos that ░░░░░░░░ are besieged in But ░░░░░░░░ the same time what ░░░░░░░░ don t see is ░░░░░░░░ camera or a commentary ░░░░░░░░ the broader backdrop So ░░░░░░░░ see people in that ░░░░░░░░ say this is crazy ░░░░░░░░ is horrible And guess ░░░░░░░░ we say How can ░░░░░░░░ live in a community ░░░░░░░░ you re destroying your ░░░░░░░░ future and prospects Many ░░░░░░░░ them say we don ░░░░░░░░ have a future There ░░░░░░░░ a moment in the ░░░░░░░░ conference earlier today if ░░░░░░░░ re watching right now ░░░░░░░░ are images from earlier ░░░░░░░░ Night is falling obviously ░░░░░░░░ Baltimore There are some ░░░░░░░░ out on the street ░░░░░░░░ are a lot of ░░░░░░░░ that have been dispatched ░░░░░░░░ the
