9:13 am
is e african american community in the national urban league's latest annual report, the state of black america. this year's publication is titled under siege, the plot to destroy democracy. let's talk more about what's in the report and get reaction to it. by welcoming back to the ninth, the host of the black report on fox soul good morning to you, demi lobo. hello garcia is so great to speak with you again. this is an annual report that report that comes out every year. and so we're really happy that this comes out. the national urban league is a place that the black community looks to four black news, black black updates about what's going on in our community. and so with this report, it showed that 73% of
9:14 am
the american pie is still not given to us as a black community and also we have so it does say , added a few things here. it says that black people have made economic and health gains, so that's really good to know that we did make some gains, but we're still very far behind white people when it comes to education when it comes to social justice, and when it comes to civic engagement, which are two things that are very important to the black community. we saw the black lives matter movement how that made black people feel seeing what happened with george floyd and so many black americans, brianna taylor. they're on after and so it just really is disheartening to know that even though we have made some gains in some places when it comes to the important areas like i said social justice, education and civic engagement were still very , very far behind and add to all that the fact that the pandemic for the past two plus years has dramatically affected black and brown communities. more so than the general population. i imagine your viewers are sharing stories with you on fox hill, perhaps through social media about how these big issues are being felt in a very real way in their lives. absolutely you
9:15 am
know, we are the demographic are the black people right now on our viewers, and i'm so happy that you you touched on that they're definitely weighing in on instagram on social media and letting us know how they feel about this, because although this seems like a national issue, that is something that that's not on a local level. education is something that we've talked about. the last time is very, very important. have are the same access to education as our white counterparts knowing that when you get pulled over by a police officer, that fear that is something that a black person it's very hard to describe the fear of getting pulled over and it's such a difference to our white counterparts getting pulled over by a police officer and you know there's still a lot of work that needs to be done in the community in the world, but i'm really happy that the national black urban league released this so they said that the future is grim. because that lets us know that we still have so much so much work to do to feel like we are really equal as people in america. yes, 73.9% of the economic status, health, education, social justice, etcetera compared to white americans. alright let's move on
9:16 am
now to what's happening partly there in southern california, a recent guilty plea by a southern california woman to hate crime charges for an attack on the black team of 14 year old in a new york hotel lobby. the plea deal requires the woman maya ponsetto to avoid any jail time if she gets counseling and avoided the criminal incidents. what do your viewers think of the outcome of this highly followed case? is definitely was very highly followed case and the problem with this situation here is that a lot of people are wondering if the roles were reversed here. if this was a black woman who attacked a white woman or a black, a black man who attacked a white man would the count would the situation looks the exact same and that's what a lot of black americans are having a hard time. trying to grapple with that the way that she had no charges here, and she's not possibly like you said not going to face any jail time is really just feels unfair and unfair. just the tone that a lot of black americans have right now that you literally attacked a young 14 year old man . young young boy, you said that
9:17 am
he stole your phone and then even the interview that she did after there was no remorse for what she did. she didn't apologize for it didn't seem like she really cared about what was going on and again. if this were a black person, a lot of people feel if this was a black person attacking a white person, this would be a totally different situation that black person would be in jail. and so it just it's really just sad and disheartening again to know that this is happening. in 2022 in america, and she is possibly not going to go to jail. it's interesting to hear the district attorney in this case, a black man said the plea ensures appropriate accountability by addressing the underlying causes for the woman's behavior and helps to ensure that the conduct does not happen again. i know a lot of people want punishment strict consequences. but according to the d, a this sort of dialogue and counseling that she has to get may have a more positive outcome. where your viewers what do they say about that? counseling to me, and i don't want to downplay counseling because i'm sure there are definitely positive that comes from counseling and a
9:18 am
lot of americans in the world. no matter what race you are could definitely benefit from counseling, but the way that she reacted in this case attacking a 14 year old boy, there absolutely should be more repercussions. to the counseling , and she can also get a plea deal. she also rebuttal this. it definitely just doesn't feel like a fair situation. and so you know, with this here the our viewers are really just feeling like are we getting accountability as a black community right now we see so many cases. honestly with derek chauvin, and i hate to wrap that in there, but with derek chauvin, i feel like i was one of the one case of the very few that we feel like there was a person who really got accountability. he really is in jail. he's going to be there for a while. but there are so many cases day in and day out where there is no accountability. we still haven't gotten the killer for brianna taylor, and so it just really just feels like does america. black america care? does america excuse me care about black americans right now? okay it's good that you're able to provide this window into those conversations were so glad to have you on again and we'll
9:19 am
see you next week. demi lobo. we will thank you so much guys and always loved checking in with you guys to give a black perspective on what's going on and how we feel from our viewers perspective. absolutely. we could watch yourselves demi when we switch over to fox all online anytime. fox hole dot tv. you can also watch on the fox soul app. for apple and android devices happening today in oakland man who entered a guilty plea to killing the hayward police sergeant is back in court right now for his sentencing. sergeant scott longer was shot and killed during a traffic stop in july of 2015. mark astrada was charged with first degree murder. his plea agreement will send him to prison for at least 50 years. open police chief laurent armstrong says one big reason for the rise in violent crime is that criminals are being released from jail early oakland, according to chief armstrong has the highest number of people in alameda county, who are released on bail and then commit crimes again. chief armstrong says the emergency bail system established during the pandemic to reduce jail population. let many criminals get back out on the streets soon after they were arrested. including people arrested for felony assault. we've been so
9:20 am
focused on trying to provide support and resources for those that have committed crimes that we've lost sight of those that have been victimized. now the police chief is working with the alameda county district attorney as well as county judges to try to keep criminals from committing crimes again. but he says the changes aren't happening fast enough. communities across the country are cleaning up the devastation created by tornadoes, blizzards and wildfires this week. actually strohmeyer has more on the work that's being done as forecasters are warning of more severe weather in the coming months. cleanup is underway across parts of texas, minnesota and iowa after tornadoes touched down in several communities on tuesday, roughly two dozen people are recovering in the lone star state after an ef three tornado slammed neighborhoods north of austin. bringing with it winds speeds of up to 165 mph and damaging more than 60 structures. at least 10

9:37 am
very optimistic out there, but also expensive as you know. yeah um, for people watching and they want to roll up and pack up and hit his head out on the summer vacation. hotel prices i know are but let's specifically talk about airfare. where's airfare right now compared to pre pandemic. listen we started the year knowing that we were going to see sort of a monthly bump in airfare, pricing and numbers for march just came out this morning fares were up 20% over march of 2019 so pre pandemic and although bookings were up 12% the amount that those fares costs was up, 28% so you know we were looking a little bit more. that's good news, but we're paying quite a bit more, and that's certainly hitting folks in the in the pocketbook. i think we're going to see prices continue to rise over the next 4 to 6 weeks. right now, the demand is what's driving. those prices were going to see now the added effect of airlines starting now to purchase jet fuel at the same prices that were being dig with at the at the gas pump. ah and that's gonna result i think in in a bump up in every yet again, i
9:38 am
think maybe they level off end of may early june, but the time to book him certainly is asap. you talk about the gas pump. a lot of people around here are paying $100 just to fill a tank. but if they don't want to fly for vacation, and they want to do you know, in california trip down to san diego to l a. whatever it may be. is the gas prices affecting how airlines kind of treat their ticket prices when it comes to the short haul flights. yeah and i think that's those are the ones that are getting infected quite a bit more. those sort of shorter regional flights. there are fewer of them. therefore when people are sick and guessing that road trip and saying, hey, you know, maybe we find said, because it's going to cost us a lot to fill the gas tank up and down the coast and they're just gonna put extra pressure on the shorter regional flights, and we're seeing those go up almost on a daily basis. so again for folks who are waiting around for that. booking that summer fair fall. i'm even talking about the holiday season at the end of the year here, mike now i'll be the time to do it because they're just going to continue to go up over the next think that it's you know, 468 weeks, and even when they level

off, the odds of them coming down are slim to none. got it. good tip there. what about overseas? s specifically europe because the war going on in ukraine right now, um how, however, vacation's been affected? or maybe maybe there's even deals? i don't know. people try countries out there trying to get americans to travel there. yeah well, that's that's a great question. and the fact of the matter is the good news is we've seen no mass cancelations since the ukraine situation started about 45 50 days ago, but we've seen a pullback in his new booking so about 13 to 15% drop off in new transatlantic bookings about 25% drop off in bookings of flights within europe, so i think as those transit planning, booking bookings drop a little bit again that will put pressure on domestic flights will see domestic airfare. go up, but the pull back on airfare within europe, my generation values for folks looking to go to europe instead of traveling domestically and then getting around within the continent. we're still i think that the area's gonna be most affected. mike in europe are going to be those closest to the situation. so croatia, hungary, poland. the quintessential southern western

european destinations like france, italy, ireland, the uk, greece are looking pretty good for the summer season about the beach season. right here in the bay area. we've got rain right now. we've got rain really throughout the easter weekend in the next week, so i mean mexico, hawaii, um, expensive right now or deals. listen it's going to be a pricey proposition because beach vacations are the number one type of vacation that u. s travelers are looking for the summer of 2022 into the fall season. so if you're looking at southern california looking at florida you're looking at hawaii . hawaii is on fire right now. you know, there's a dance between the impact of travel to a state like hawaii. but the fact that demand of hawaii is at record levels and certainly starts at the border. the caribbean are going to be doing really, really well. the good news is a lot of inventory south of the border. a lot of inventory in the care in the caribbean. so although the demand is going to be how you might you possibly sees especially have a california some some deal opportunity to places like puerto vallarta accomplishment. lucas and cancun. gabe you've been all

9:42 am
alternative. there's no competition in the online market. sellers paid amazon more than $103 billion in sales fulfillment fees. last year. that's 22% of the company's total revenue. amazon says it's imposing the surcharge instead of permanently increasing its fees on small businesses. time now. 9 41 san francisco district attorney chase a. boudin is speaking out against the attempt to recall him. he tells ktvu his reason for fighting. let me be clear. my top priority is public safety. there is nothing more important to me, and that's what my office does all day. every day as we fight for public safety, you all just heard a lot of lies, a lot of dishonesty and a lot of spent. and that shouldn't be a surprise because this is a recall recalls aren't about debates between candidates. with different visions for a particular office there about who can spend enough money to qualify something for the ballot. we also gave one of his critics an opportunity to respond. his former colleague, brooke jenkins, is leading the effort to unseat boutin and says
9:43 am
he is doing a disservice to the city. he is failing to prioritize public safety. he has made political policy positions. more important than what's necessary to protect the citizens of san francisco and we are seeing lives actually be lost as the result of his failed policies. long time bay area pollster ruth bernstein and hit her company. emc research recently released a poll on the race and it paints a grim outlook for boudin 68% of people polled said they will vote yes to recall the district attorney. 32% voted. no members of congress are reportedly expressing concerns about senator dianne feinstein is memory. the san francisco chronicle reports that it spoke to four u. s. senators, three of whom were democrats. and several former feinstein staffers, all of them, saying her memory appears to be getting worse. according to the report, one of them started talking to other people in congress to see if
9:44 am
they could convince the senator to resign. feinstein's office has repeatedly declined claims that she could not do her job and that her health was failing . her term does last through 2024 this morning. there is still no final approval about changing the borders of the district for san francisco supervisors. the task force rejected what was supposed to be the final draft map after meeting for almost seven hours, the updated map split the tenderloin in south of market into different districts. potrero hill and the baby district were also separated. there were complaints that new bap would divide neighborhoods that have similar interests and needs. the city charter requires new districts to be approved by midnight tonight or the task force could be sued. coming up here on mornings onto the nine. there's a new study out that suggests californians could reduce their water use by more than 30% after a quick break, we go over the untapped potential for saving such a precious resource, then, right when we come back, we're excited to talk live with an actress and comedian who was a south bay
