these are multinational corporations that are interested in profit. the listening pays to deconstruct the media on how this error ah ah, ah, what is a democracy? i don't know. i've never lived in north america. yes, i'm guy. i grew up in his overall during the crack epidemic. people were shot in front of my door. mm. my neighborhood was rougher than anyone can ever believe. 5 kids. 1214 shot in the hey the what i was is always, i was always different. you know,
you realize how hard you make it for people in the community to realize how far you make some people in the community. i had serious anger issues. i was drinking a lot. i would love. i gave my life back to god and it put me on a different path, right. so i came up with black lives matter, create a new york. if i see the police doing something wrong, always because the problem is the average people in our community are too afraid to say anything. activism chose me. you know, my parents met at a civil rights rally. my father was leaving the protests. my mother looked out the window, he was like, you know, what are you doing up there were protesting girl come on down. right. so she went
down, rest is history like history. we are doing really well with the african american community with hispanic community. we're doing well with women, we're doing very well. see my children as much because i can't stay in one place for too long. i'm bouncing around. i kind of live in my life on the right, but i'm not running. i'm just not making myself an easy target. i live out in the back of this car daily. i'm going to kill you. i'm going to kill your family. we make ourselves hard to kill. that's our goal. we are hard to care bourbon women. they love. they want security and they don't want roger mean right next to america has never been a real democracy in the black people will never experience that ah,
today do not want to see or election big greece nolan, valuable than radical emigrants, which is what they're doing. and stolen by the fake news media, that's what they've done and what they're doing. we will never give up. we will never get to see it doesn't happen with the january. 6. assault on the capital building in the united states was the most shocking day in america. since september 11th, 2001. 0. and in many respects more horrified. it wasn't done by foreign terrorists. it was done by merican.
ah, it was an attempted coup against democracy in the united states. i am often asked why have you spent your whole life studying democracy? we have extended family who narrowly escaped the holocaust there remember one friend would come over is a survivor of the concentration camp and the numbers were tattooed on his forearm. so when you see in extremities, the ultimate cost of authoritarian rule, when there are no checks on the power of a ruler and a ruling party and
a ruling ideology gone mad, it ought to drive you had certainly drove me toward a very passionate commitment to freedom democracy is in retreat, freedom is in retreat and more and more countries are slipping backwards. ready many of the liberal democracies of the world, the high quality democracies, have been losing ground and in particular, the united states, our democracy is under unprecedented sought. i never imagined that democracy itself could be in danger. and i didn't like anything. we've seen the modern tribes with last a lot of route in terms of voting rights like polarization, the independence of the courts trust and in the electoral processes. so i. busy
americans tend to be a bit insular and proud. and so it's natural to think american democracy began in $1770.00 search with the declaration of independence or the freeing of the slaves and the granting of the franchise to african americans in the south. ah, the united states to become full electoral democracy until 1965. when we pass the voting rights, the slaves and the slave would they be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood? i have a dream. washington d. c. 1963, i'm microsoft speaks on my voice. when president johnson introduce of voting rights at to the american public,
he used the language of the civil rights movement. ah, it took almost a 100 years to realize that those civil war amendments granted because there was a push back to the rights that were granted on the amendments. we had the what we call the jim crow error where lots of states pass laws that made it impossible for minority voters, black voters to be able to vote. they had literacy tests, they had poll taxes. so while on the books, it said you had the right to vote. in reality, you didn't who you know, you hear that america is one of the oldest democracies in the world. but in reality,
most people have not had a chance to participate in our democracy. and even now we're facing a lot of laws that try to limit or create barriers to that participation. i co direct the voting rights project that work with the open my eyes to the challenges within our democracy wasn't just about elections, but it was the rule that racial discrimination played in voting right. so is america? democracy is the country that's learning how to be a democracy, but it's not there yet. and wanted to make sure that my daughter would become a citizen of a democracy who is really engaged and not taking that democracy for granted. ah.
with democracy in the ideal should definitely be one person when both in a simple way democracy is self governing. right? people choosing their own leaders, people being able to govern themselves. but we're finding out that democracy requires the quality ah, with the development of technology in the development of a global system, it's becoming clear how unequal we are and how far we are from the values that we claim to have with. it's important to think about when we set that intention, right when we called our son democracy. and i think we spend the rest of our
existence of the country a trying to get there with yes that, that, that i have spent a lot of time thinking and writing about the into war period in europe. i never imagined that setting the into war period would have a lot to teach me about what was going on in my own country. i hadn't thought very carefully about how fragile democracy was, how much it took to make it work and how easily people could forget how valuable democracy was. ah, democracy. originally the term comes from the greek rule by the people. so on some basic level,
on this idea of rule by the people is quite ancient. so on the most basic level, democracy means that people have the right to choose their leaders and governments in free and fair elections. now that sounds very simple, but in order to have truly free and fair elections, 1st of all, you have to have freedom to organize politically, to campaign around the country to run for office, you have to have freedom to vote. that means all different groups in the country have to have, at a minimum, the franchise, the right, the right to vote on the right to and test for authors. ah, i think democracy stems from the desire of human beings for dignity, for respect, one person, one vote that citizens have political equality. and of course in the united states,
as in many other parts of the world that remains an ideal, but not a reality. i do not think that the election system in those countries bear. i think that there are so many problems with the way that we do elections and is extremely inaccessible. we do not have universal voter registration like many democracies do . so there are so many steps between an eligible voter and actually voting. the rate of voting in his country is low and that's a direct consequence of an over overly convoluted registration process. you register online, you register by mail. for example, in texas, you have to be deputized, these are all things that stand in the way of people boating. so our elections can't possibly be fair. they aren't actually representative of the american people . first and foremost, not everyone has the right to vote. and of course, that disproportionately affects people of color. that's why trump one,
because we haven't done anything about racism in this country. ah, no, it's a question. we often ask ourselves, how did the us get to that point? i've just received a call from secretary clinton. ah, when a donald trump emerged on the scene as a presidential candidate in 2015, i thought it was political theater. and really theater of the absurd. i will totally accept. mm. the results of this great and historic presidential election. ah, if i, when he gain more momentum and was able to win the republican nomination and a divided feel, i'm asking for the vote of every african american citizen struggling
in our country today. who wants a different and much better future. and i told my friends around the world, don't worry about it. it was an unlikely event, like a once in a century story leaks. i love with killing. ah, so november 8th, 2016 was one of the most shocking and alarming of nights of my life. ah, i was worried for american democracy and i was worried for democracy around the world. ah, the combination of the 2008 recession. it had hurt working class incomes in the united states, a lot dag needed for the last 2 to 3 decades. while the very rich were
becoming ever richer, much of the middle class, the traditional white working class felt threatened as well by social change by immigration, the movement of racial equality. and it's just so much social change happening that a lot of people felt their world was being turned upside down. and the way that has been manipulated by populous like donald trump playing on racial anxieties and divisions. it was a very, very volatile mix. we are returning power to you. the american people. i've gotten more indian blood in me than you do it. i have not. mm. mm. ah,
i deal with a number of organizations are referred to as patriots with. i'm the president of new york goals keepers. we expect people to live up to that definition of honoring their role to defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. ah, my background is that i been in war, i was in vietnam. the reality is that you learn things a more that you can't learn any world. ah, people wonder what a patriot is. it someone who loves their country and wants the best for it. and there are many people who believe that there are factions within the united states who don't want ah,
it seems like our country has moved away from being a christian dale based country to wanting to be a socialist country. my biggest fear for america is the decline of america moving too far to the left. i joe biden. i don't believe he's a moderate less. i believe he's going far left so that the people can be more and more dependent on the government for everything. if you don't have a job, we're going to give you money. but the ideology of the right side is that capitalist society, it gives everybody an opportunity to be rich. my parents came from puerto rico, both of them came from puerto rico. i've worked hard for what i have. i went to school i study, but look at me where i am,
we need immigration. we need to bring people into this country. we have to, but we can't have uncontrolled immigration. uncontrolled immigration will lead to a disaster will lose our country. we have oh, oh, the oh. you gotta be thankful for. he exposed america for what it really is. he showed you that 70000000 people in this country are races. evil, hateful people. oh, they rented houses of mexican brothers and sisters. we protested for that. i was arrested for the police beat me up. they damage my spine
there was a lot of painful moments in a trump presidency. he did a lot of evil things to people with, well, actually set it out. was guilty of treason, insurrection, in sedition. and after he did that, the following week i received over a 1000 deft, right. i get text messages every day, saying we're coming to kill, you don't come to my town. lynch. we're going to hang you. we're going to lend you . so people put threats on my life, serious threat when it happened. i was like, ok, i graduate. i graduated, president of the united states of america. heard my words
we wait a bullets, we'll learn how to fight. we learn how to shoot, we will have weapons to defend ourselves with this is just what it is you should about there and put your life on the life of black people. you will looking america in, i'm saying, i'm ready to die. race continues to be the single most powerful and enduring dividing force in american politics. we all know this is the original sin of american democracy is slavery. oh, it was incredible that the america at its beginning,
was able to say all men are created equal while having a significant enslaved population. when america started only white men with property could vote. and america has been struggling since that time, with the ideals that are written down in our documents. all men are created equal ah, my dream is that people like a my daughter, the young people does have a full voice and don't feel targeted because of their race or ethnicity. ah, i think about how how much has changed and then with the kind of thing that martin
luther king was faced and john lubo at that time. but at the same time you had to think about how much still hasn't changed. and we still like we were celebrating the 50 something memorial, but we still were talking about the same thing and just different versions of it. i guess that those fundamental issues haven't really changed. you have to be vigilant because it just, if you don't pay attention, you go right back. exactly ill those times. and i think that's really my fear as we move forward because now we have a new president. but i don't want that to mean that we stop try that we start working because that's exactly how it'll come right back around whenever you go backwards the arc when you fight for progress, the arg was a little more of a head. so you are going forward, but you also have to fight about going back, you know,
and i think that's an important thing to think about because especially when you think about how much really hasn't changed, it's easy to feel defeated, feel like good point low. but i think i think every actor is us to try to address that for themselves, knowing that you will work your entire life and in that being will really change. but just think about what would happen if nobody did anything ah. awards crisis in america, his west is intensifying,
deep historic dividend obliterated. ecosystems to create agriculture at the expense of our tribes. that's the way it's been since time. get the strong pagan away from the weak fault lines. investigate how climate change his pursing an oregon town to breaking point, we will fight because it's in a blood we are literally to the point the people are going to start seeing each other. when the war to stop on al jazeera, november on al jazeera by years after the his story, he feel between falk rebels and the colombian government algebra examines white tensions and violence of rising. once again, emmy award winning poor flies investigates the untold stories across the us. millions in co, gustavo boat in parliamentary elections under a new constitution. and more than a year after the last hold triggered a political crisis in mercy at personal, short documentary africa, direct showcase his african stories from african filmmakers shina marks $100.00
