7:04 pm
educational materials is known as book censorship and it's not a part of american culture since the mayflower so the governor of plymouth william bradford charge that thomas morton had to compose sundry rhymes and verses some tending to the city as miss morton was eventually banished by the puritan colony of for his actions in sixteen twenty eight really four hundred years later we're still holding on to those puritan beliefs that words can poison the soul that must be contained hidden or even destroyed and twenty six email is office for intellectual freedom found that over half of all books banned in us schools libraries and universities are by authors of color and contained ideas that are outside of the perceived mainstream and those brain twisting propaganda pieces threatening the minds of the nation's news their books like the color purple by alice walker beloved by toni morrison the autobiography of malcolm x. and i no way that caged bird sings by maya angelou classics by some of the greatest american authors ever yet begun and in many modern public schools for fear it will
7:05 pm
offend or confuse parents and students as someone rushed the one said what is freedom of expression without the freedom to offend it ceases to exist to help us understand this a little deeper is all for a professor do you walk in to the welcome place you guys don't get a good good you almost certainly ask you what what is deep what can you know what what are your favorite bad books what's your list so watching say what you know what your top three top five but books that they should go out every so it would definitely be the autobiography of malcolm x. i think it's such an important book as educator you can give your kids this book showing this amazing journey show them to many different transformations he went through. and you compare it with a movie so as a reward for so that would definitely be number one on the lesson the next would be color purple you know the same thing like these are brilliant brilliant stories written by a brilliant people and. we only hurt people when we keep the truth away from them
7:06 pm
yes we do yes we do it's true as you guys know because the truth teller that's what we tried every day to get in trouble every day i said i mean. when i look at these books i'm looking at this list and i'm thinking i read that some great i read that high school i read this in college these were books that were you know i guess we weren't maybe not as sensitive in the eighty's and ninety's and kids weren't able to handle it and i think that's the weird part what what you know how do these books banned books affect kids who either aren't reading books because hard to get kids to read a lot of times or getting them but also when they have parents who don't or can't read how does the ending these books make it even harder how does that affect kids especially children of color who aren't seen books that reflect that so you know a long time ago before the twitter instagram and even television right there were books now that kind of. people the most wealthy people always had the best
7:07 pm
libraries they had the books they had the knowledge they could take that knowledge . develop strong critical thinking skills in the world and to use those skills to give everyone else their realities it's the same thing the only difference now books way more sensible now we are taught that we hate reading when i was a kid i thought i hate reading. it wasn't wasn't common to see books like huckleberry finn and tom sawyer next you know next to the old banana pill running in a dumpster writing this is not a thing as mark twain but that was so many contemporary books when i was going to school in the ninety's. come up you know going to school and then it was so many there was so many books that spoke to my experience and even like the early two thousand where if i was in high school and you gave me a book like nathan mccall make me want to holler i would have read it if you would again be called as one of us just a soldier i would have read it but instead you've given us books that you know we can't connect with and we never develop those critical thinking skills so we're
7:08 pm
just like the people from back in the hundreds and we're walking around with heads full of someone else's ideas and it's dangerous and it's very dangerous it's very very dangerous you know and it's interesting people's reactions to things that they don't want other people to read or don't understand themselves and people see something they don't understand keep away from it scares me yeah right i don't like it and that kind of leads into the i think a pub big part of the banning of books i don't understand it i don't like it and it might influence some of the wrong way it's that idea of like you know is reading the n. word in huckleberry finn going to make someone a racist you know is the fear of you know that fear of profanity and challenging people's beliefs more of just kind of trickled down of that period to country that the united states was founded upon because we forget that we forget we're very puritan religious you know dogma you know of any of criticism of of of the standard or that. the standard of. punished and you still see it today
7:09 pm
it's like oh this group of people shouldn't. or you know that shouldn't be that way or see these things in this group people shouldn't see this exhibit you don't know what was his you're out of huckleberry finn and that's when it gets brought up because they might get confused if they read this and you might not understand but i learned a lot about race from reading the perry phantom events that great teacher is my reasserted it's too late now ok so you bend it back when you know people could have taken a lot from it and then when it becomes old and outdated you try to feed it to these young people who've already moved on schools right now giving kids the scarlet letter these kids already are having sex and paying for abortions and making a bit like this is a whole different to think about it think about it like this. when we were kids right if you were going to like do something like you know like you know you could buy community magazine or something like that right now so you can sense it that you can control that had to work really really hard to see that you had to really
7:10 pm
yes to your older brother just collection thank you to get a boy or somebody you know serious business now these kids click on a phone everything's instant so why are we trying to censor their experiences when they can really get their hands on everything that any any and everything and. again we're not doing anything but hurting them because it is not they're not going to be able to function and never get to decide if they don't get those go and sort of that idea of like having a bubble around and i think the lesson of that i mean one hundred schools and let me just say you know like my book has been the beside has been and a lot of schools because of profanity right i've been to these schools and these kids have said curse words that i've never even heard that al i'm learning stuff again five everything in this country evolves right i myself own isn't the same phone from like a week ago was education still stuck in the now you know and then we complain about these low test scores it's interesting because when you mentioned earlier you know
7:11 pm
people started you know those people had libraries and they held that information back so then they could filter that information out right there go. most education read the most i'm filled with i wonder if that's what we're seeing now with this kind of crackdown the freedom of information on the internet you know where you see kind of like everyone kind of suddenly jumping on to this all we need to rein in social media we need to rein in this because it's a very dangerous to the people experience of social mobility make them start to imagine that you cannot about these kinds of things that women are getting this idea that they shouldn't be harassed and run i wonder that so that kind of you know beat up things that aren't getting all it literally was a student who was certain he'd leave her the dangerous for you know the poor and minorities to learn too much because then they will become now if we get smart you know we don't how poor we want to think take. yeah you know once we get smart we'll realize hey you know we're not the same color we don't have the same experience but we can link together and we can build something to combat the top one percent yeah
7:12 pm
that's what's interesting capitalism you must make sure that groups of people are systemically generationally oppressed yeah and if you do that you always have people to sell products to again like i said my whole thing you know what this whole this journey of fighting for for a fair critical thinking skills for everyone is about you know the first book i fell in love with i did like i said i thought i had a reading someone gave me the coldest want to ever knew i loved reading that simple and i'm so happy for you guys you know and you know it's interesting my dad handed me the malcolm x. book when i was about thirteen years old so breed this you know and one of the reasons he did which i think we don't give young people and you work with kids a lot we don't give young people no credit they part of the idea is that we have to teach them the shades of grey of not only historical figures and people given for these not know not to say for now they say it's a great but you know i mean we have to be able to teach them that it's more than
7:13 pm
just right or wrong history is more than just this is what happened this was right this is wrong of us back yet we have to teach them a thousand different perspectives so that when they can build their own properly correct about how powerful is control the way you look at history in this country you know you guys were slaves did not making much in the rosa parks and because it was time and i barack obama ran for president that's african-american history right there whatever i'm out now you're free yeah you know you can say that same thing when you go when this history you know like one day we got one day there was suffrage there was candy stand and she passed the bought of susan b. anthony and before you knew it they got together one of the hillary clinton and now this one is history and oh yeah the man and he's a walk ahead like me to a product like this and this is what you this is what we've given our children and we have to cost them. we fight that we have to because if we don't the same problems that we see plaguing our country the year in a year i was going to get you to happen you know we got to do something about it that's what history's always repeating itself over and over again because you see
7:14 pm
you know and i can't i can't stress enough to folks books are still the most powerful one of the most powerful tools of learning we have because it does put you know i would never of known your life experience had i not read the book that you wrote you know and it's more powerful even than what i'm saying on t.v. because t.v. is just a box of magic it doesn't actually have the depth the books hold and it's the same thing because the color purple really was moved as one of the first books i read it in eighth grade when i was thirteen years old and it made me realize it was the struggle of women in understanding black women struggle and understanding a lot of things i didn't and that's a need that all of these so these books were transformative in amazing writing but there's all these brand new contemporary by young people who reflect the communities that we were to where kids have been educated that can be used this is right is in ohio who got to read about the dude from ohio what a woman from ohio had a rough hours away she has
7:15 pm

7:16 pm

7:19 pm
entire life if it was thirty years old you might have a two ton fish out there and yet they don't get that big today because we're way too good at catching. it's only a whim themself a much larger mission was once there and that was much more widely distributed we have politicians that are in office for a few years they have to get reelected everything is very very short term our system is not suited and is not geared for long term survival and that's why we have the catastrophes.
7:20 pm
ok. cool. russia says it regards the poisoning of a former spy in the u.k. as an act of terrorism and while demanding answers to war answered questions. scores of civilians are killed as rebel selling target rebel shelling i should say targets the suburbs of damascus and it's a crowded market. and facebook is under fire after the date of millions of its users was harvested and exploited in u.s. presidential campaigns. joining us this evening you're watching r.t. . the russian foreign ministry says it considers the poisoning of former spy
7:21 pm
surrogate script and this doctor to be an act of terror it's held a briefing on the case with a number of ambassadors attending the event with more details is not is not here issued the foreign ministry spokesperson said a number of things firstly he reiterated that russia could have in no way benefited from the attack moscow says they consider this to be a terror attack secondly they stated that the u.k. refused to cooperate with russia which is against the convention on preparation of chemical weapons and he mentioned the attack could have been orchestrated by another party but then clarified that russia is not pinning the blame on anyone and asked that his words not be distorted let's take a quick look. we see that the british authorities are becoming ever more nervous and it's clear why the clock is ticking they have backed themselves into a corner they will eventually have to provide an answer the increasing number of unanswered questions we expect from london and from the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons an official detailed account of developments
7:22 pm
regarding the scruple case when. comprehensive conclusions and detailed confirmation a spokesperson for the defense ministry also spoke out and he said that it seems that britain is afraid to conduct an unbiased investigation into the scribbled case and that the u.k. presented no proof that gas illegibly used to poison scruple was made in russia he went on to say that the formula of the subs and not the child was published by scientists. who is working with the us government the russian foreign ministry went on to talk specifically about britain and said it was and is one of the states that have been implementing a program on the development of new chemical weapons since one thousand nine hundred seventy s. he added that the porton down lap in britain is used to conduct an immense involving use of chemical weapons now we did have a reaction from a london embassy spokesperson who stated that moscow doesn't have to present anything in terms of script or case but is ready for
7:23 pm
a joint investigation london has proposed russia a dialogue over this case however it doesn't see a constructive approach from moscow now the ambassadors that did not attend were britain u.s. and france britain and the u.s. sent embassy workers instead a crimp spokesperson reacted to the u.k. decision by saying that it showed unwillingness to hear russia's to its questions that moscow to date has denied any involvement in the attempted murder is a new list cripple the russian former intelligence officer and his daughter you were allegedly poisoned insults three both of them remain in a critical condition and so this diplomatic spat that has gone on for a while now looks to continue to go on for some time. meanwhile the u.k. foreign secretary boris johnson has said that he believes the script poisoning leads back to the kremlin citing a number of allegations however claiming he doesn't want a new cold war. well i want to be very clear that we do not wish to engage in
7:24 pm
a new cold war i deprecate that term i don't want i remember them of the old cold war they bought the rods floatable. couldn't broaching putin's can use it the way he was the one hundred thirty six olympics here so i think that comparison with nine hundred thirty six is is certainly right the russians as ever responded with denial distortion and delay and that is their tactic the cyberwarfare dissin from asian middling in european election campaigns to say nothing of election campaigns elsewhere a general feeling that russia has got to be moved. well that meeting boris johnson also said that led him of putin wasn't validly elected on sunday some of those who congratulated the russian president like donald trump caused outrage by doing so
7:25 pm
trump defied his national security advisers who'd warned him not to congratulate the russian leader picking up the story his arteries were i guess the. trump's gone and done it again something completely normal but it struck so what the hell lay into him he called putin and congratulated him despite very clear instructions not to literally his brief said do not congratulate in capital letters according to an anonymous source not that that bothers anyone these days do not say congratulations on capital letters and the president gets on the phone with them and says congratulations you shouldn't be congratulating president putin for the sham election but he just did it anyway dangerous strong man who is threatening western democracy that requires a strong stance so dark some call of up to say. putin's critics in the haters
7:26 pm
bristled with indignation john mccain's twitter account always hyper sensitive to all things putin blew up it was mccain teed off president trump insulted every russian citizen he was denied the right to vote in a free and fair election to determine the country's future probably best not to show mccain the margin by which putin won he's old and frail but twitter o'boy twitter do not congratulate actually trended and they came up with some pretty funny stuff do not stare into the sun followed by a picture of donald trump apparently staring into the sun that silly and not good for you then a picture of mike pence touching something that clearly has a do not touch sign on it funny because he shouldn't be doing that and this guy has do not congratulate on his organ donor card so if he dies don't congratulate
7:27 pm
him get it come to think of it i've seen funniest stuff but it's trump they'll take it and. any opportunity to bash him even if he does something normal that's called protocol and there are many countries from around the world that when someone. wins if you well i don't like action that you pick up the phone and you place that phone call angle or merkel and emanuel also congratulated putin many others did too some god like for it some didn't it's nothing personal but thing to do with like or dislike just protocol you're going to have to work together anyway but these days not even that flies john claud younger president of the european commission he got flack nor seating and shameful they call it now a few years ago they called it diplomacy but down with the old let's all behave
7:28 pm
like angsty teenagers and post funny pictures on twitter. in other news a series of misawa taxer struck government controlled suburbs of the syrian capital killing at least forty four people but. it's all about every three of my relatives are injured my wife and daughter are in surgery right now. my son told me he wanted to celebrate mother's day with me so i told him let's go to the market she bought a cake i was buying sweets when the explosion happened i saw only a lot of dust and my children under the table. local state media say the rebels in eastern guta carried out those shelling attacks
7:29 pm
many of the victims died when one of the rockets hit a crowded market local journalist alive bring him visited the site. this is one of the largest single rocket strikes that ever hit the syrian capital damascus since the beginning of the conflict back in two thousand and eleven the rockets hit a popular market a marketplace for three problems of the heart of people shopping those people into a sort of break novelty and many people buying their gifts your survey and when the shells heard leaving the small number of the civilians into a particular struggle. when we got outside we couldn't see anything because the dust a real massacre ice we are wouldn't wish anyone to witness a scene like this it's really sad. in the past forty eight hours the syrian army was able to make substantial gains in the syrian military now controls over thirty percent of what was once one of the most important and closest to the syrian capital damascus trouble holding claves it is believed that it is in this location many of the headquarters of the rebels were established perhaps this is the reason
7:30 pm
why the rebels have stepped up their rocket attacks in this recap of damascus damascus have seen an increase in the number of rockets that hit it in the past twenty four hours but also the quality of the caliber of the ruckus the rebels are using to show the couple damascus. new arms deals became the main topic for talks between the saudi crown prince and the u.s. president on tuesday donald trump found creative way to present his potential customer with more military hardware. reviewing you know five hundred thirty three million dollars five hundred twenty five million dollars the spirit. so here it is a very wealthy nation and we're going to give the united states some of that wealth hopefully. the meeting was met with protesters activists called on washington to stop backing the saudi led bombing of yemen.
