  • DISTRICT, AND THEY MADESOME OTHER CLAIMS.
  • 00:05:53.208 --> 00:05:55.644

  • OVER HALF A CENTURY.
  • 00:06:32.280 --> 00:06:33.648
  • I THINK A REASONABLEPERSON WOULD SAY WELL,
  • 00:06:33.748 --> 00:06:35.584
  • SURE THERE ARE.
  • 00:06:35.684 --> 00:06:36.985

  • 00:06:38.954 --> 00:06:40.856
  • AND THAT'S WHAT MADE MESAY WE SHOULDN'T

  • - KIM, SPEAKFOR YOURSELF.
  • 00:06:44.726 --> 00:06:48.697
  • YOU BASICALLY ARECOMMUNICATING A MESSAGE
  • 00:06:48.797 --> 00:06:52.000
  • THAT IS RAREIF EVER HEARD.
  • 00:06:52.100 --> 00:06:55.804
  • WHERE DOES THISMESSAGE COME FROM?
  • 00:06:55.904 --> 00:06:58.240
  • - KIM KLACIK: YEAH, SO FOR THEPAST 8 YEARS I'VE BEEN RUNNING
  • 00:06:58.340 --> 00:07:01.243
  • A NONPROFIT, BASICALLYWORK FORCE DEVELOPMENT.
  • 00:07:01.343 --> 00:07:05.113
  • AND MOST OF THE PEOPLETHAT WE HELPED WERE
  • 00:07:05.213 --> 00:07:06.882
  • LIVING IN WEST BALTIMORE.
  • 00:07:06.982 --> 00:07:08.683
  • SO WE'D DRESS FOR WORK,BUT I'D COME PICK THEM UP
  • 00:07:08.783 --> 00:07:11.653
  • FROM THEIR HOMES, TAKETHEM SHOPPING, DO A WHOLE
  • 00:07:11.753 --> 00:07:14.289
  • MAKEOVER, GET TOUNDERSTAND WHO THEY ARE.
  • 00:07:14.389 --> 00:07:16.458
  • WE'D GO TO LUNCH.
  • 00:07:16.558 --> 00:07:17.692
  • WE'D TALK ABOUT SOME OFTHE TRAUMA THEY'VE
  • 00:07:17.792 --> 00:07:19.294
  • HAD IN LIFE OREXPERIENCES.
  • 00:07:19.394 --> 00:07:21.429
  • BUT A LOT OF STORIES KINDOF RANG TRUE WHEN IT WAS
  • 00:07:21.530 --> 00:07:25.200
  • TALKING THE LIVINGCONDITIONS IN THE AREA.
  • 00:07:25.300 --> 00:07:28.069
  • YOU KNOW, I DON'T THINKIT'S A SECRET THAT CRIME
  • 00:07:28.169 --> 00:07:30.372
  • AND VIOLENCE PLAGUESBALTIMORE CITY.
  • 00:07:30.472 --> 00:07:32.440
  • IT HAS FOR A LONG TIME.
  • 00:07:32.541 --> 00:07:34.009
  • I THINK EVEN MORE SOSINCE THE RIOTS IN 2015.
  • 00:07:34.109 --> 00:07:37.345
  • SINCE THEN, WE'VE HADOVER 300 MURDERS EACH YEAR.
  • 00:07:37.445 --> 00:07:40.582
  • MOST OF THOSE MURDERSHAPPENED IN WEST BALTIMORE.
  • 00:07:40.682 --> 00:07:43.752
  • YOU CAN'T SAY IT'S NOTCONNECTED, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:07:43.852 --> 00:07:47.255
  • THERE'S A LOT OF BLIGHT.
  • 00:07:47.355 --> 00:07:48.223
  • THERE'S A LOT OF TRASH.
  • 00:07:48.323 --> 00:07:49.691
  • THE BALTIMORE SUNACTUALLY DID A REPORT AND
  • 00:07:49.791 --> 00:07:51.826
  • SAID IF YOU CALL DPW ITPICKS UP THE TRASH IN
  • 00:07:51.927 --> 00:07:55.397
  • ROLAND PARK OR OTHERNEIGHBORHOODS, THEY
  • 00:07:55.497 --> 00:07:57.265
  • ANSWER YOUR CALL100% OF THE TIME.
  • 00:07:57.365 --> 00:07:58.767
  • IF YOU CALL AND YOU LIVEIN CARROLLTON RIDGE OR
  • 00:07:58.867 --> 00:08:00.902
  • EASTER WOODS, SANDTOWNWHERE I DID THIS VIDEO,
  • 00:08:01.002 --> 00:08:03.939
  • THEY ANSWER YOURCALL 5% OF THE TIME.
  • 00:08:04.039 --> 00:08:05.807
  • SO THE DISPARITYIS THERE.
  • 00:08:05.907 --> 00:08:07.676
  • THE FACTS ARE THERE.
  • 00:08:07.776 --> 00:08:09.210
  • AND THEN I JUST GOT TOTHE POINT SOMEBODY HAS
  • 00:08:09.311 --> 00:08:11.646
  • GOT TO SPEAK UP FORTHE PEOPLE IN
  • 00:08:11.746 --> 00:08:13.448
  • THESE NEIGHBORHOODS.
  • 00:08:13.548 --> 00:08:14.616
  • WHEN YOU SEE CAMERASGOING THROUGH BALTIMORE,
  • 00:08:14.716 --> 00:08:16.151
  • A LOT OF TIMES YOU ONLYSEE THOSE NEIGHBORHOODS
  • 00:08:16.251 --> 00:08:19.120
  • WHEN A HOMICIDEHAPPENS OR A SHOOTING.
  • 00:08:19.220 --> 00:08:20.755
  • YOU NEVER GET TO HEARFROM THEM ABOUT ANYTHING
  • 00:08:20.855 --> 00:08:22.557
  • ELSE, SO I THOUGHTYOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:08:22.657 --> 00:08:24.292
  • NOW IS THE TIME TO SPEAKUP ON THEIR BEHALF.
  • 00:08:24.392 --> 00:08:26.461
  • - WHERE AREYOU COMING FROM?
  • 00:08:26.561 --> 00:08:27.862
  • HOW ARE YOU WANTING OURAUDIENCE ON TRINITY
  • 00:08:27.963 --> 00:08:31.099
  • BROADCASTING TOEVALUATE WHERE YOU'RE
  • 00:08:31.199 --> 00:08:35.337
  • COMING FROM?
  • 00:08:35.437 --> 00:08:36.571
  • - A GOODPLACE, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:08:36.671 --> 00:08:37.906
  • MY NONPROFIT INEVER TOOK A SALARY.
  • 00:08:38.006 --> 00:08:39.874
  • I DID IT ALL FOR FREE.
  • 00:08:39.975 --> 00:08:41.376
  • I JUST WANT TO SEE PEOPLEHAVING OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:08:41.476 --> 00:08:44.179
  • IN LIFE.
  • 00:08:44.279 --> 00:08:45.480
  • ECONOMICALLY THERE'S NOTA TON OF OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:08:45.580 --> 00:08:47.882
  • IN BALTIMORE.
  • 00:08:47.983 --> 00:08:48.783
  • I DON'T THINK THAT'SA SECRET EITHER.
  • 00:08:48.883 --> 00:08:50.018
  • I THINK EVERYTHING IPOINTED OUT IN THE VIDEO
  • 00:08:50.118 --> 00:08:52.487
  • THEY WERE ALL FACTS.
  • 00:08:52.587 --> 00:08:53.588
  • PEOPLE DID FACT CHECKINGAND THEY'RE LIKE OH, WAIT.
  • 00:08:53.688 --> 00:08:55.423
  • SHE'S CORRECT.
  • 00:08:55.523 --> 00:08:56.658
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:56.758 --> 00:08:57.993
  • - NO ONE WANTS TOHEAR THAT THOUGH.
  • 00:08:58.093 --> 00:08:59.227
  • - AWKWARD.
  • 00:08:59.327 --> 00:09:01.229
  • YEAH, IT'S VERYINCONVENIENT.
  • 00:09:01.329 --> 00:09:02.530
  • - YEAH, SO TO ME I THINKCAREER OPPORTUNITIES, WE
  • 00:09:02.631 --> 00:09:06.534
  • LACK THAT HERE INBALTIMORE CITY.
  • 00:09:06.635 --> 00:09:08.269
  • OUR EDUCATION AGAIN,THAT'S NO SECRET.
  • 00:09:08.370 --> 00:09:10.538
  • WE'VE GOT 13 HIGH SCHOOLSOUT OF 39 WHERE KIDS
  • 00:09:10.639 --> 00:09:13.208
  • GRADUATE NOT PROFICIENTIN MATH SO IT'S HERE.
  • 00:09:13.308 --> 00:09:17.712
  • THE FACTS ARE HERE.
  • 00:09:17.812 --> 00:09:18.880
  • SOMEBODY JUST KIND OFHAS TO POINT THEM OUT.
  • 00:09:18.980 --> 00:09:21.016
  • AND I TALK ABOUT THE FACTTHAT DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN
  • 00:09:21.116 --> 00:09:24.753
  • IN CHARGE FOR 53 YEARS,BECAUSE THAT ONE PARTY
  • 00:09:24.853 --> 00:09:27.155
  • MOB RULE A LOT OF TIMESDOES LEAD TO CORRUPTION.
  • 00:09:27.255 --> 00:09:29.858
  • AND WE SAW JUST THIS LASTOUR FORMER MAYOR WAS
  • 00:09:29.958 --> 00:09:32.827
  • INDICTED FOR PAY TO PLAY.
  • 00:09:32.927 --> 00:09:34.262
  • THAT WASN'T OUR FIRSTMAYOR THAT WAS INDICTED
  • 00:09:34.362 --> 00:09:35.797
  • ON CHARGES.
  • 00:09:35.897 --> 00:09:37.265
  • SO I THINK THERE'S A LOTOF FRIENDS IN OFFICE THAT
  • 00:09:37.365 --> 00:09:42.137
  • KIND OF KEEP THEIRSECRETS BETWEEN THEM,
  • 00:09:42.237 --> 00:09:44.039
  • ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY'REIN THE SAME PARTY.
  • 00:09:44.139 --> 00:09:46.041
  • I THINK THEY TAKE VOTESFOR GRANTED BECAUSE
  • 00:09:46.141 --> 00:09:47.575
  • THEY'RE THINKING, YOUKNOW, WHO'S GOING TO COME
  • 00:09:47.676 --> 00:09:49.511
  • UP AND MOVE US?
  • 00:09:49.611 --> 00:09:50.311
  • NO ONE.
  • 00:09:50.412 --> 00:09:51.479
  • SO I THOUGHT, YOU KNOW,EVEN IF I DON'T WIN, I
  • 00:09:51.579 --> 00:09:53.581
  • THINK PUSHING A POWERFULCAMPAIGN MIGHT ACTUALLY
  • 00:09:53.682 --> 00:09:56.351
  • GET THE PEOPLE IN CHARGETO ACTUALLY DO THEIR JOB.
  • 00:09:56.451 --> 00:09:58.186
  • - SO IT FEELS LIKEYOU'RE TRYING TO

  • 00:25:04.658 --> 00:25:06.794
  • NINE OUT OF TEN BLACKBOYS IN BALTIMORE ARE NOT

  • THIS IS A TRAGEDY.
  • 00:25:16.870 --> 00:25:18.839
  • WE CAN END THESCHOOL-TO-PRISON PIPELINE
  • 00:25:18.939 --> 00:25:20.841
  • WITH SCHOOL CHOICE,PROVIDING PARENTS WITH
  • 00:25:20.941 --> 00:25:22.910
  • OPTIONS TO ESCAPESCHOOLS THAT DO NOT
  • 00:25:23.010 --> 00:25:25.412
  • SERVE OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:25:25.512 --> 00:25:27.114
  • LET'S LEAVE BALTIMOREBETTER FOR OUR KIDS.
  • 00:25:27.214 --> 00:25:29.416
  • ISN'T THAT THE POINT?
  • 00:25:29.516 --> 00:25:31.285
  • THAT'S MY VISIONFOR BALTIMORE.
  • 00:25:31.385 --> 00:25:33.153
  • THE CORRUPTLEADERS HATE IT.
  • 00:25:33.253 --> 00:25:34.822
  • THEY ATTACK ME FORTAKING A STAND,
  • 00:25:34.922 --> 00:25:36.724
  • FOR WANTING BETTERFOR OUR PEOPLE,
  • 00:25:36.824 --> 00:25:38.726
  • OUR CHILDREN, OUR COMMUNITIES,
  • 00:25:38.826 --> 00:25:41.629
  • BUT I'M NOT THE ONLYONE WHO WANTS BETTER.
  • 00:25:41.729 --> 00:25:46.400
  • TENS OF MILLIONS OF YOUHAVE SHARED THE STRUGGLE
  • 00:25:48.235 --> 00:25:50.004
  • OF BLACK PEOPLEIN BALTIMORE.
  • 00:25:50.104 --> 00:25:52.072
  • YOU LIFTED OUR VOICES.
  • 00:25:52.172 --> 00:25:54.608
  • YOU'VE CARED ABOUT OURBLACK LIVES MORE THAN OUR
  • 00:25:54.708 --> 00:25:57.578
  • OWN DEMOCRAT LEADERS.
  • 00:25:57.678 --> 00:26:01.749
  • THEY HAVE DONENOTHING FOR US.
  • 00:26:01.849 --> 00:26:04.818
  • NOW THEY CAN'T HIDE.
  • 00:26:04.918 --> 00:26:06.820
  • IT'S TIME FOR CHANGE.
  • 00:26:06.920 --> 00:26:08.455
  • WE ARE THAT CHANGE.
  • 00:26:08.555 --> 00:26:17.531
  • I'M KIM KLACIK AND I'MRUNNING FOR CONGRESS
  • 00:26:17.631 --> 00:26:19.500
  • BECAUSE I ACTUALLY CAREABOUT BLACK LIVES.
  • 00:26:19.600 --> 00:26:21.969
  • ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER.
  • 00:26:22.069 --> 00:26:23.370
  • OUR COMMUNITIES MATTER.
  • 00:26:23.470 --> 00:26:24.672
  • WE MATTER.
  • 00:26:24.772 --> 00:26:25.773
  • AND BALTIMORE DOESN'THAVE TO VOTE DEMOCRAT.
  • 00:26:25.873 --> 00:26:29.777
  • - WHAT YOU AREMESSAGING, KIM,
  • 00:26:34.548 --> 00:26:37.985
  • IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE SAID.
  • 00:26:38.085 --> 00:26:42.122
  • YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO NOTVOCALIZE THE VERY THINGS
  • 00:26:42.222 --> 00:26:46.627
  • THAT YOU'RE VOCALIZING.YOUR THOUGHTS ON THAT?
  • 00:26:46.727 --> 00:26:51.532
  • - YEAH, SO I'M TOLD ALLTHE TIME THAT I'M SELLING
  • 00:26:51.632 --> 00:26:54.501
  • OUT, I'M NOT DOING WHAT'SRIGHT FOR MY PEOPLE, BUT
  • 00:26:54.601 --> 00:26:58.439
  • IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT I'MTALKING ABOUT, OR EVEN
  • 00:26:58.539 --> 00:27:01.308
  • WHO I'M TALKING ABOUT, ITIS BLACK PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:27:01.408 --> 00:27:04.478
  • LIVING IN THESE LIVINGCONDITIONS, SO IT DOESN'T
  • 00:27:04.578 --> 00:27:07.247
  • MAKE SENSE TO ME THATI HAVE TO CHOOSE.
  • 00:27:07.347 --> 00:27:10.384
  • I HEAR A LOT OF PEOPLESAY, WELL, YOU KNOW, YOUR
  • 00:27:10.484 --> 00:27:12.753
  • VIDEOS, YOU WENT TO THEBAD PARTS OF BALTIMORE.
  • 00:27:12.853 --> 00:27:15.289
  • WELL, FOR ME, IF I WANTTO REPRESENT DISTRICT
  • 00:27:15.389 --> 00:27:17.091
  • SEVEN, I WANT TO REPRESENTEVERYONE EQUALLY.
  • 00:27:17.191 --> 00:27:19.460
  • I THOUGHT THAT'S WHAT WEWERE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:27:19.560 --> 00:27:21.195
  • THESE DAYS IS EQUALITY.
  • 00:27:21.295 --> 00:27:23.130
  • SO IF THERE ARE PEOPLE INNEGLECTED COMMUNITIES, OF
  • 00:27:23.230 --> 00:27:25.833
  • COURSE I'M GONNA REACHOUT AND FIGURE OUT HOW WE
  • 00:27:25.933 --> 00:27:28.035
  • CAN GET THEM TO A PLACETHAT EVERYONE'S EQUAL AND
  • 00:27:28.135 --> 00:27:31.138
  • THEN WE GO UP FROM THERE.
  • 00:27:31.238 --> 00:27:32.973
  • THESE NEIGHBORHOODS ISWHERE ALL THE BAD SCHOOLS
  • 00:27:33.073 --> 00:27:35.776
  • ARE. THIS IS WHERE ALLTHE SHOOTINGS HAPPEN.
  • 00:27:35.876 --> 00:27:38.078
  • PEOPLE ARELIVING IN FEAR.
  • 00:27:38.178 --> 00:27:40.247
  • WE HAVE SOME KIDS THATDON'T EVEN LIKE TO WALK
  • 00:27:40.347 --> 00:27:41.782
  • TO SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY'REIN FEAR, AND SO I EVEN
  • 00:27:41.882 --> 00:27:46.153
  • ASKED, I SAID IF OTHERNETWORKS THAT ACCUSE ME
  • 00:27:46.253 --> 00:27:49.823
  • OF LYING OR CHERRYPICKING, I SAY
  • 00:27:49.923 --> 00:27:52.693
  • WELL JUST COME TO TOWN.BRING YOUR CAMERAS.
  • 00:27:52.793 --> 00:27:55.929
  • I DON'T HAVE TOBE THERE WITH YOU.
  • 00:27:56.029 --> 00:27:57.431
  • JUST WALK THESTREETS YOURSELF.
  • 00:27:57.531 --> 00:27:59.133
  • BUT NO ONE EVER DOES THATBECAUSE I THINK THAT
  • 00:27:59.233 --> 00:28:01.201
  • WOULD GO AGAINST ANARRATIVE AND PROVE THAT
  • 00:28:01.301 --> 00:28:03.137
  • WHAT I'M SAYINGIS ACTUALLY TRUE.
  • 00:28:03.237 --> 00:28:05.139
  • - SO ISN'T THISHAPPENING ALL OVER
  • 00:28:05.239 --> 00:28:06.840
  • AMERICA IN THESEBEAUTIFUL CITIES?
  • 00:28:06.940 --> 00:28:09.309
  • I MEAN TAKE CHICAGO, ONEOF THE, JUST A BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:28:09.409 --> 00:28:12.813
  • CITY. WE WERE THEREEARLIER THIS YEAR,
  • 00:28:12.913 --> 00:28:16.917
  • I THINK, STAYED DOWNTOWN.
  • 00:28:17.017 --> 00:28:18.886
  • IT WAS JUST BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:28:18.986 --> 00:28:20.087
  • KIND OF THE FIRST TIMETHAT I HAD REALLY
  • 00:28:20.187 --> 00:28:21.455
  • EXPERIENCED A WONDERFULTIME DOWN IN CHICAGO.
  • 00:28:21.555 --> 00:28:26.059
  • - BUT THERE ARE THESECTIONS THAT ARE
  • 00:28:26.160 --> 00:28:28.095
  • JUST BEING LEFT BEHIND.
  • 00:28:28.195 --> 00:28:29.696
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:28:29.797 --> 00:28:30.898
  • - I THINK YOU'RE VOICING THAT.
  • 00:28:30.998 --> 00:28:32.399
  • - AND THE POLICIES DONEED TO CHANGE IN ALL
  • 00:28:32.499 --> 00:28:33.767
  • THESE CITIES. IS THAT--
  • 00:28:33.867 --> 00:28:35.602
  • - ABSOLUTELY. IF YOU LOOK ATWHICH CITIES WE REALLY
  • 00:28:35.702 --> 00:28:38.071
  • SEE ON THE NEWS FOR CRIME,VIOLENCE AND THINGS,
  • 00:28:38.172 --> 00:28:40.641
  • THESE ARE CITIES THATWERE ONCE BOOMING
  • 00:28:40.741 --> 00:28:42.309
  • BECAUSE OF MANUFACTURING.
  • 00:28:42.409 --> 00:28:44.545
  • SO I TALK ABOUT WE SAWDURING THE CORONAVIRUS
  • 00:28:44.645 --> 00:28:47.080
  • LOCK DOWN THAT WE HADTO RELY ON OTHER
  • 00:28:47.181 --> 00:28:49.249
  • COUNTRIES FOR OUR PPE.
  • 00:28:49.349 --> 00:28:51.285
  • IF WE BRING BACK THATMEDICAL EQUIPMENT
  • 00:28:51.385 --> 00:28:53.253
  • INDUSTRY TO PORTS LIKEBALTIMORE AND TO OTHER
  • 00:28:53.353 --> 00:28:55.989
  • CITIES, THE BIOTECHINDUSTRY, BRINGING IT
  • 00:28:56.089 --> 00:28:58.325
  • BACK TO AMERICA, WE CANGET MANUFACTURING GOING
  • 00:28:58.425 --> 00:29:00.894
  • AGAIN. I KNOW A LOTOF MANUFACTURING JOBS
  • 00:29:00.994 --> 00:29:04.631
  • WENT OVERSEAS, BUTUNFORTUNATELY WE HAD
  • 00:29:04.731 --> 00:29:06.667
  • PEOPLE IN PLACE IN THESEOFFICIAL SEATS THAT DID
  • 00:29:06.767 --> 00:29:10.337
  • NOT DO ANYTHING TOREPLENISH THOSE JOBS
  • 00:29:10.437 --> 00:29:12.973
  • ONCE THEY LEFT, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:29:13.073 --> 00:29:14.875
  • SO I THINK THAT'SWHAT WE SEE.
  • 00:29:14.975 --> 00:29:17.077
  • AND I JUST FEEL LIKEIF WE HAVE THE CAREER
  • 00:29:17.177 --> 00:29:20.113
  • OPPORTUNITIES, IF WEREALLY TAKE OUR EDUCATION
  • 00:29:20.214 --> 00:29:23.717
  • SYSTEM SERIOUSLY ANDFIGURE OUT WHY IS IT
  • 00:29:23.817 --> 00:29:27.254
  • MISSING IN SOME SCHOOLSAND NOT OTHERS, I THINK
  • 00:29:27.354 --> 00:29:29.623
  • WE CAN CURE THIS PROBLEMA LOT FASTER, BUT IT
  • 00:29:29.723 --> 00:29:32.359
  • TAKES SOMEONE ROLLING UPTHEIR SLEEVES AND DOING
  • 00:29:32.459 --> 00:29:34.661
  • IT, AND THEN IT ALSOTAKES SOMEONE THAT MAYBE
  • 00:29:34.761 --> 00:29:37.130
  • DOESN'T HAVE ANY FRIENDSIN THE BUSINESS ALREADY,
  • 00:29:37.231 --> 00:29:40.968
  • BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OFMONEY TO BE MADE IN CRIME
  • 00:29:41.068 --> 00:29:43.237
  • AND VIOLENCE, AND ITHINK THAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:29:43.337 --> 00:29:45.739
  • HERE IN BALTIMORE.
  • 00:29:45.839 --> 00:29:47.808
  • - OKAY, IF YOU JUST TUNED IN,WE ARE IN BALTIMORE.

  • IT'S TENS OF MILLIONS OFPEOPLE NOW ARE SHARING
  • 00:30:14.835 --> 00:30:19.239
  • AND RE-SHARING THIS.
  • 00:30:19.339 --> 00:30:21.642
  • WE WANT TO GET TO KNOWYOU A LITTLE BIT, BUT
  • 00:30:21.742 --> 00:30:24.211
  • WERE YOU EVEN PARTIALLYPREPARED FOR THIS?

  • - THAT'S EXACTLYHOW IT FEELS. YES.
  • 00:30:38.191 --> 00:30:40.193
  • - GOT IT.
  • 00:30:40.294 --> 00:30:43.330
  • SO WE AT LEAST KNOW THATTHIS IS SOMEWHAT
  • 00:30:43.430 --> 00:30:47.668
  • OF A SURPRISE EVEN TO YOU.
  • 00:30:47.768 --> 00:30:49.469
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:30:49.569 --> 00:30:50.938
  • WE NEVER THOUGHT THISWAS GONNA GO VIRAL.
  • 00:30:51.038 --> 00:30:53.006
  • I REMEMBER WHEN WE PUT ITOUT, IT WAS IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:30:53.106 --> 00:30:56.076
  • OF THE DAY, AND I WASLIKE NO ONE LOOKS AT MY
  • 00:30:56.176 --> 00:30:58.245
  • TWITTER AT FOUR O'CLOCKIN THE AFTERNOON.
  • 00:30:58.345 --> 00:30:59.980
  • I SAID WE'VE GOT TO DOIT IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:31:00.080 --> 00:31:01.782
  • AND THEY WERE LIKE NO,JUST PUT IT OUT,
  • 00:31:01.882 --> 00:31:03.283
  • IT WILL BE GREAT.
  • 00:31:03.383 --> 00:31:04.518
  • SO I THOUGHTOKAY, HERE WE GO.
  • 00:31:04.618 --> 00:31:06.553
  • IT WILL BE THE FIRST OF AFEW ADS SO WE'LL SEE WHAT
  • 00:31:06.653 --> 00:31:09.389
  • HAPPENS. BUT THEN IT JUSTLITERALLY TOOK OFF.
  • 00:31:09.489 --> 00:31:12.592
  • AND I THINK ONCE THETRUMP FAMILY SAW IT AND
  • 00:31:12.693 --> 00:31:15.028
  • THEY STARTED RE-TWEETINGIT, I THINK THAT'S WHEN
  • 00:31:15.128 --> 00:31:17.631
  • IT WAS REALLY LIKE OH,NO, THIS IS CRAZY
  • 00:31:17.731 --> 00:31:19.900
  • AND NOW WE BETTER GETREALLY IN GEAR.
  • 00:31:20.000 --> 00:31:22.569
  • THE FIRST THING THATWE SAW OF COURSE
  • 00:31:22.669 --> 00:31:24.204
  • WAS WHERE IS THE PLAN?
  • 00:31:24.304 --> 00:31:25.706
  • THAT FIRST VIDEO WAS TOBASICALLY GET PEOPLE'S
  • 00:31:25.806 --> 00:31:28.575
  • ATTENTION AND TO RAISEAWARENESS OF THE FACT
  • 00:31:28.675 --> 00:31:30.310
  • THAT I WAS RUNNING.
  • 00:31:30.410 --> 00:31:31.812
  • SO I THOUGHT WEACCOMPLISHED THAT, RIGHT?
  • 00:31:31.912 --> 00:31:33.547
  • - YEAH. I'M PRETTYSURE YOU GOT THAT,
  • 00:31:33.647 --> 00:31:36.616

  • MORE OF THE PLAN.
  • 00:31:40.821 --> 00:31:42.422
  • IT TALKS ABOUT, AGAIN,THE SAME THINGS.
  • 00:31:42.522 --> 00:31:44.691
  • CAREER OPPORTUNITIES,EDUCATION, THE IMPORTANCE
  • 00:31:44.791 --> 00:31:46.793

  • 00:32:48.288 --> 00:32:52.359
  • BE LIKE WHENSHE GETS MY AGE.
  • 00:32:52.459 --> 00:32:54.694
  • I THINK SHE'S GONNA BEA FORCE TO RECKON WITH.
  • 00:32:54.795 --> 00:32:57.798
  • - WELL, I THINK WEKNOW WHERE SHE GETS IT.
  • 00:32:57.898 --> 00:33:00.200
  • - YEAH, YEAH.
  • 00:33:00.300 --> 00:33:01.501
  • - THAT'S FUNNY.
  • 00:33:01.601 --> 00:33:02.602
  • OKAY, SO OBVIOUSLY YOUCAME FROM A POLITICALLY
  • 00:33:02.702 --> 00:33:04.638
  • CONNECTED FAMILY.
  • 00:33:04.738 --> 00:33:06.640
  • YOUR DAD AND YOUR MOMWERE CONGRESSMEN,
  • 00:33:06.740 --> 00:33:09.109
  • SENATORS ORSOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:33:09.209 --> 00:33:10.544
  • - NOT AT ALL.
  • 00:33:10.644 --> 00:33:12.245
  • - SO YOU JUST CAME OUT OF--
  • 00:33:12.345 --> 00:33:13.847
  • - OUT OF THE BLUE.
  • 00:33:13.947 --> 00:33:15.582
  • - THE BLUE, AND YOUJUMPED INTO THIS.
  • 00:33:15.682 --> 00:33:19.386
  • YOUR FAMILY WEREN'TIN POLITICS?
  • 00:33:19.486 --> 00:33:21.721
  • - NO, NO. MY MOM SELLSHEALTH INSURANCE.
  • 00:33:21.822 --> 00:33:23.824
  • HAS HER WHOLE LIFE.
  • 00:33:23.924 --> 00:33:25.559
  • MY DAD WAS AN EXECUTIVEAT IBM IN THE VERY EARLY
  • 00:33:25.659 --> 00:33:29.563
  • 80s WHEN IT WAS UNHEARDOF TO SEE A BLACK MAN AS
  • 00:33:29.663 --> 00:33:32.199
  • AN EXECUTIVE AT IBM.
  • 00:33:32.299 --> 00:33:34.034
  • SO WE LIVED IN BUFFALONEW YORK FOR A LITTLE
  • 00:33:34.134 --> 00:33:35.936
  • WHILE, THEN MOVED TOSOUTHERN MARYLAND, AND
  • 00:33:36.036 --> 00:33:37.704
  • THEN HE WAS WORKINGIN DC A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:33:37.804 --> 00:33:40.974
  • HE ENDED UP RETIRING.
  • 00:33:41.074 --> 00:33:42.542
  • HE HAD ISSUES WITH HISHEART AND UNFORTUNATELY
  • 00:33:42.642 --> 00:33:44.177
  • PASSED AWAY LAST YEAR,BUT WE ALWAYS TALKED
  • 00:33:44.277 --> 00:33:46.947
  • ABOUT ME GETTING MOREINVOLVED BECAUSE I WOULD
  • 00:33:47.047 --> 00:33:49.850
  • TELL HIM RUNNING MYNON-PROFIT, I WAS LIKE
  • 00:33:49.950 --> 00:33:52.185
  • DAD, THERE'S CLEARLYPOLICIES IN PLACE ON WHY
  • 00:33:52.285 --> 00:33:55.555
  • SOME OF THESE PEOPLECAN'T GET AHEAD.
  • 00:33:55.655 --> 00:33:57.357
  • NO MATTER WHAT I DO,THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:33:57.457 --> 00:33:59.192
  • THAT I FEEL LIKE JUSTWON'T GET OUT OF THIS RUT.
  • 00:33:59.292 --> 00:34:01.895
  • I TALK A LOT ABOUT THEFACT THAT THERE ARE
  • 00:34:01.995 --> 00:34:04.131
  • PEOPLE THAT USE SECTION8 HOUSING VOUCHERS, AND
  • 00:34:04.231 --> 00:34:06.700
  • THAT'S LOTS OF PEOPLE,RIGHT, IN ALL PARTS OF
  • 00:34:06.800 --> 00:34:08.969
  • THE COUNTRY, BUT WITHTHOSE VOUCHERS, PEOPLE
  • 00:34:09.069 --> 00:34:12.172
  • HAD TO DECIDE WHETHEROR NOT TO KEEP THEIR
  • 00:34:12.272 --> 00:34:14.508
  • FAMILIES TOGETHER.
  • 00:34:14.608 --> 00:34:16.376
  • NOW IF PEOPLE GO BACK ANDLOOK AT SECTION 3, THAT
  • 00:34:16.476 --> 00:34:19.146
  • SECTION 8, SECTION 3 ISJUST LIKE SECTION 8
  • 00:34:19.246 --> 00:34:22.516
  • BUT THE DAD CAN STAYIN THE HOME.
  • 00:34:22.616 --> 00:34:24.518
  • SO THEN I STARTED TOWONDER, WHY DID
  • 00:34:24.618 --> 00:34:26.453
  • THEY PICK SECTION 8.
  • 00:34:26.553 --> 00:34:28.221
  • SO THIS IS ACTUALLYCONVERSATIONS I'VE HAD,
  • 00:34:28.321 --> 00:34:30.157
  • EVEN WITH TRUMP'SADMINISTRATION, HIS
  • 00:34:30.257 --> 00:34:31.992
  • ADVISOR JARON SMITH.
  • 00:34:32.092 --> 00:34:33.460
  • HE WORKED ON THE FIRSTSTEP ACT AND PRISON
  • 00:34:33.560 --> 00:34:35.095
  • REFORM, SO WE'VE BEENDISCUSSING WHAT WE CAN DO
  • 00:34:35.195 --> 00:34:39.065
  • BECAUSE JUST LIKE BILLCLINTON SAID, THE
  • 00:34:39.166 --> 00:34:41.101
  • GOVERNMENT SUBSIDYPROGRAMS ARE SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:34:41.201 --> 00:34:43.403
  • BE TEMPORARY, ANDNOW WE HAVE OVER FOUR
  • 00:34:43.503 --> 00:34:46.306
  • GENERATIONS THATARE LIVING ON THEM.
  • 00:34:46.406 --> 00:34:48.275
  • BUT I DON'T THINK AGAINIT'S GONNA BE AN EASY FIX.
  • 00:34:48.375 --> 00:34:51.378
  • WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TOSHOW PEOPLE YOU CAN GET
  • 00:34:51.478 --> 00:34:54.214
  • SO MUCH FURTHER INLIFE WHEN YOU'RE
  • 00:34:54.314 --> 00:34:56.149
  • WORKING YOUR OWN CAREER.
  • 00:34:56.249 --> 00:34:57.751
  • THAT'S THE ONLY WAYYOU'RE GONNA LIFT ANYONE
  • 00:34:57.851 --> 00:34:59.085
  • OUT OF POVERTY AND THAT'SHOW YOU GET FURTHER.
  • 00:34:59.186 --> 00:35:01.154
  • IF YOU'RE STILL ONASSISTANCE, YOU'RE ONLY
  • 00:35:01.254 --> 00:35:03.423
  • GONNA GET AS FAR AS THATASSISTANCE ALLOWS YOU TO GO.
  • 00:35:03.523 --> 00:35:05.692
  • - TAKE US INTO YOURHOME, DINNER TABLE.
  • 00:35:05.792 --> 00:35:09.696
  • YOU HAVE ALL YOURIMMEDIATE FAMILY AROUND,

  • YOUR MOM AND ALL THAT,SO YOU'RE ALL JUST

  • - YES, YES.
  • 00:35:26.046 --> 00:35:27.013
  • SOMETIMES SHE'LL CALL MEAFTER WATCHING A NEWS
  • 00:35:27.113 --> 00:35:29.216
  • CLIP AND SHE'LL BE LIKE,SO YOU REALLY THINK
  • 00:35:29.316 --> 00:35:31.618
  • TRUMP IS RIGHT ONTHIS ONE, HUH?
  • 00:35:31.718 --> 00:35:33.653
  • AND THEN SHE JUST GOESINTO IT, BUT SHE'S SO
  • 00:35:33.753 --> 00:35:36.022
  • PROUD OF ME AND SO HAPPY.
  • 00:35:36.122 --> 00:35:37.824
  • I HAVE TWO BROTHERS,ONE'S A CHEMICAL ENGINEER,
  • 00:35:37.924 --> 00:35:40.293
  • THE OTHER HE BASICALLYPROTECTS MILITARY BASES.

  • HE WAS IN JAPANFOR A LITTLE WHILE.
  • 00:35:44.664 --> 00:35:46.533
  • THEN THERE'S ME, THE MIDDLECHILD, ONLY DAUGHTER.
  • 00:35:46.633 --> 00:35:49.803
  • BUT I DON'T THINK WETALKED MUCH ABOUT POLITICS.
  • 00:35:49.903 --> 00:35:54.641
  • THAT WASN'T REALLYOUR FAMILY, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:35:54.741 --> 00:35:57.110
  • SO SITTING AT DINNER TABLE,WE WOULD DISCUSS WHAT

  • HAPPENED AT SCHOOL, WHAT'SGOING ON WITH WORK?
  • 00:35:59.379 --> 00:36:02.048

  • THEY WOULD ALWAYSBEAT THAT DRUM.
  • 00:36:05.785 --> 00:36:07.454
  • BUT YEAH, WE WERE JUST AREGULAR MIDDLE CLASS FAMILY.
  • 00:36:07.554 --> 00:36:10.357

  • CAN YOU GET HER PREPARED?
  • 00:36:34.381 --> 00:36:35.749
  • SO THAT PART OF THEPROCESS IS A BIG PART, BUT

  • UNFORTUNATELY, IT'S NOTLOOKED AT AS WORK FORCE
  • 00:36:38.418 --> 00:36:40.754

  • 00:36:59.973 --> 00:37:02.642
  • THAT WAS TRAUMATIC FOR ME.
  • 00:37:02.742 --> 00:37:05.478
  • AND I MOVED TO BALTIMORE TENYEARS AGO WHEN I STARTED

  • AND HE SAID, THIS ISTHE WAGES AROUND HERE.
  • 00:37:33.406 --> 00:37:35.709
  • SO I ACTUALLY SAID, OKAY,I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:37:35.809 --> 00:37:38.044
  • SPEND MY TIME DOING THAT.
  • 00:37:38.144 --> 00:37:40.513
  • MAYBE I CAN SPEND MY TIMEDOING SOMETHING POSITIVE FOR

  • HALF THE WAGES, RIGHT?
  • 00:37:45.652 --> 00:37:47.587

  • MAYBE THIS IS WHAT I SHOULDBE DOING BECAUSE I KNOW
  • 00:38:33.900 --> 00:38:36.002
  • GOING THROUGH WHAT I WENTTHROUGH, I FELT
  • 00:38:36.102 --> 00:38:38.238
  • DEFEATED ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:38:38.338 --> 00:38:40.073
  • I DROPPED OUT OF COLLEGEBECAUSE I WAS JUST
