happening tonight nbc's conversation about race continues. i want to start that conversation this morning, what it's like for reporters dealing with issues as black journalists. one near and dear from the bay shared, "while reporting on the death of george floyd, an anchor unexpectedly said: can i ask you a personal question? he wanted to know my reaction of the first time i saw the now infamous video of an officer's knee pressing floyd's neck as he begged to breathe."
tracie potts, for all your loyal viewers out there, nbc washington reporter for us and nations all over the country. thank you for joining i want you to talk to us about your reaction when you heard that question? >> well, at first i didn't want to answer it because i didn't think it was the place of a reporter to give my personal opinion. this is such a different type of story to cover. and what i mean by that, you know, typically we don't give our opinions in stories. i still obviously want to always be fair and objective but perspective is important. when you are an african-american in this country, your perspective is often different than some of your colleagues. i did answer the question. i said i was shocked seeing him there, made me think of my own son. what if that was my son in that position. i often wonder -- our viewers
know we're people, in addition to the people they see in the box and on the screen and things affect us just like they do everyone else. when you were reading a story a minute ago talking about george saying 28 times "i can't breathe" my heart started beating when i heard that again. it's emotional. >> it really is. i know part of your article i was reading, it did say when you see those faces you're not always a journalist, sometimes you're a mother. you mentioned your 16-year-old son. i want to put up a quote you put in the article as well "one day my 16-year-old son was headed to the grocery store. i found myself hugging him repeatedly. i cried a bit when he left wondering, what if he has a bad encounter with police and the next time i see his face it is under a sheet at the morgue?" when i read that, tracie, i'm going to be honest with you, tears started to fill my eyes -- wh whoa. i think about my mother --
>> it's hard. >> i'm an only child. it's hard. talk to me about that, tracie. >> it's hard, marcus. i'm an only child, so i feel that. and he is my only son. and when you see things like this, you just wonder, you know, one of the things i was saying is had you do you -- how do you see your child as this bright, fun, precocious person and somebody else sees them differently because of the color of their skin. it's so hard. it's so hard. >> it really , us have to deal with. myself, you deal with a lot of that and you understand what parentsthrough. you
in the article you also talked about we're taught in school to report the facts, respect the truth, and that's what we do. that's what we really strive to do every day. but when life interjects with your reporting, it's hard not to give your personal experience. it really is to give perspective, not so much to create bias but create perspective in telling a story. >> right. right. and there's a perspective that you have, that i have that some had. what i have come to believe, marcus, is we have to be fair and objective. we know that. that's the bottom line. but it's important to bring that perspective. that is why we are here. that is why we are blessed to be in the position that we are, because it's important to bring -- i can't hold something back from the story that will help you understand the story better. if that something is who i h or
an experience that my family has had, i think that only adds to people understanding what's going on. i get it. i feel what you're feeling, because we have not always been in this position where we're covering stories but we kind of really know -- and not always in a very positive way -- what those stories are like on the back end. >> it is. >> thank you. i'm so glad you're having these conversations. >> i thank you for sharing and writing that piece because it was very inciteful and honest. i thank you for that and talking to us this morning, tracie. >> yeah. have a good one. thank you. >> you, too. >> thank you. again, i want you to join and be part of that conversation tonight. "race in america" continues. we'll lead that conversation for you. touching moments this morning. you know what, san francisco police will display signs of
support for black lives matter in every station and substation. the police commission approved that resolution last night. it requires the department to put up large black lives matter signs in every station in the next 30 days. it's a move the black officers hope will help keep the community safe. >> if it opens up an opportunity for someone who looks like me to feel like perhaps they are going to be understood, not prejudged. >> san francisco police officers association opposes the idea. the law firm representing the organization says, in part, that while the commission supports the notion that all black and brown lives matter, it is concerned about what they call the endorsement of a specific political organization inside the stations. all right. it's time to get a look at what's happening outside the door this morning. vianey with a look at the forecast for us. shaping up to be a nice day into
the weekend as well. >> definitely. the temperatures are great, very seasonal. even though we have the marine layer hanging around the coast, at least we've got microclimates so you can drive further up and get sunshine. walnut creek right now, beautiful view there. you can see just off in the distance a little haze. look at san francisco. this is sort of what it looked like this morning so a marine layer is slow to clear, likely going to linger for the majority of the day. notice the flag up top the building there. you can see it wavingmes. current temperatures right now in the 60s and 70s, 71 in san jose, 66 in san francisco. i want to show you a shot of the foothills using pg&e cameras. the reason i'm showing it to you, if you look in the distance there, you can see the layer of that orange hue color. those are hazy skies. yesterday folks started noticing that air quality advisory is in place all through tomorrow because of that smoke that's
blowing in through mineral fire in fresno county. good news, air quality sensors showing majority green. a lot of that green will help mix it out at times. it could become a little unhealthier in the afternoon because of that smoke. likely it's going to stay aloft and that's what we'll see. microclimate in the 80s through the south bay into the interior valleys. walnut creek, 85, redwood city 89, san mateo 84. san francisco will be in the 60s for this afternoon, up through north bay, santa rosa 80. a reminder, folks haven't gotten a chance to see it online, look northwest in the sky, comet neo-wise. the furthest away from the inner core of the season and inland. head inland definitely tonight. you have until next thursday on
the 23rd and then it won't come back for another 7,000 years. that's not something you want to miss. inland areas, it will be breezy again friday 93. look at saturday and sunday. we're talking mid-90s. it actually starts to warm up a little bit heading into the weekend but the weather is going to be fantastic. now, expect the return of the marine layer if it ever even leaves through the coastline tonight and tomorrow morning we're going to see similar conditions as well with a high in the 60s for san francisco. marcus. >> vianey, talking about weather. i can hear your dog saying take me outside then. >> he knows the word outside, it means w-a-l-k, walk. he misses uncle marcus. >> i miss him, too. thanks, vianey. cominman hits a major milestone. no, it's not about how many packages delivered or its stock price, i want to explain what happened 25 years ago that
changed our world forever. happening now for you, a new video of the sun, nasa releasing the closest picture ever taken of our closest star. they were captured by a solar orbiter, officials say the new pictures will actually help scientists piece together atmospheric layers, which is important to understand how it drives space, whether it's near the earth or throughout the solar system. we'll be back with more after the break. - i'm norm.
