3:06 pm
of racial inequality and police brutality protests across the state today marking yet another call for action on the removal of monuments like the christopher columbus statue in new york city and then i think this guy should be taken on with the other one on the same line as opinion that's all i can speak for other people boy that's how i feel about it and while mayor bill de blasio and governor andrew cuomo have both voiced their support to allow the statue to remain today governor cuomo is heeding calls for action signing an executive order this week recognizing juneteenth as a paid holiday for state employees i think this is a period where we have learned we could see we could see. monumental change and i want to be a force for change and i want to help synergize this moment. whether it's reform on the police department. whether it's an expanded. racial understanding and sensitivity and progress. and if june 8th is
3:07 pm
part of that and a recognition of what happened and understanding what half of what happened there knowledge none of that. great and as the fight for justice for blacks in america continues with protest spanning across the country one protester in philadelphia could spend the rest of their life in jail for allegedly setting a police car on fire the f.b.i. was able to obtain images of her setting the car ablaze after scouring the internet and online platforms like linked in and at sea now the moment of rest of the spacing a minimum of 7 years and a maximum of 80 years of convicted as well as a fine up to $500000.00 and a york on trinity charges back to you in washington. and one of the 3 little of all police officers involved in the shooting death of briana taylor will soon be fired america doubts that the lower bill. metro police is initiating the termination of
3:08 pm
officer brett hankerson he's accused of quote blindly firing 10 rounds into taylor's apartment which resulted in her death 26 year old taylor was an e.m.t. worker and was shot by officers inside her residence on march 13th as they entered to serve a no knock warrant this comes as the nation continues to protest for police reform and to push forward the black lives matter movement. and in atlanta several police officers have called in sick after officer who has now been fired was charged with felony murder for the fatal shooting of ratio of brooks meanwhile his partner officer devon brosnan who turn himself in was released soon after surrendering at fulton county jail last week both officers were involved in the killing of ray sharp brooks outside of a wendy's officer brosnan is accused of having stood on brooks's shoulder as he struggled for his life. and juneteenth is finally getting the
3:09 pm
recognition across the country like it has never seen before thanks to the recent recent national protests against police brutality but why are most americans just now learning about this day so far that we are going to turn to joe had a fernandez she is a history professor at baruch college over in new york and author of this book the young lords a history of the puerto rican counterpart of the black panther party are professor thank you so much for being with us let's start with president trump he is claiming responsibility for making juneteenth a thing now whether or not that is true is up for debate but the real question here is why are most americans just now learning what today is. well that's because the united states has not come to terms with its past with the history of slavery what was it and how did. contribute
3:10 pm
to the emergence of the nation but also to the emergence of capitalism slavery is and economic system was an economic system that was hugely responsible for the mass distribution around the world of rice to back oh sugar and other cash crops and upon that institution emerges the institution of the system of capitalism and so the united states hasn't really discussed this i don't haven't discussed this and it but dulls haven't come to terms with this and engaged in some kind of truth and reconciliation process. our students and young people certainly are not going to be educated about it yeah and now you as an educator i'm sure you
3:11 pm
can speak to this there are so many guidelines across this country on how to teach various subjects whether it's you know sex air or physics math and so forth why aren't there any uniform guidelines for the subject of slavery given it was such a big part of u.s. history i mean you can go from school to school within one district and the teachings on this subject you know classroom to classroom they vary so greatly. well this is how i talk about it in my class in my classes i teach a story of 20th century u.s. history which begins with reconstruction which is the moment when the south is being rebuilt immediately after the civil war but i actually start with the civil war during the american revolution the united states or the emerging nation fought the british empire after the end of the american revolution we did not
3:12 pm
invite the british to remake american society with us in a revolutionary situation you really have to amputate the losing side from society or that losing side will launch a counter revolution during the civil war the old planter class was invited to remake american society after the civil war and the south and so that class strum the moment of the end of the civil war to the president has attempted to. and distort the history of slavery the real history of slavery but what the nation understands about slavery today and in many ways is the election of trop is a consolidation in the 21st century that counterrevolution initiate it by the confederacy after the end of the civil war while that is
3:13 pm
a very good point you usually don't invite the losers to come in and reshape the future of whatever it is that you could be talking about and professor lastly among american high school seniors a $2800.00 survey found that only 8 percent of them could identify slavery as the cause of the civil war now that is abysmal what do you say to those who say the realities of slavery the brutality the depth of the true. una's of all of it might be too much for young kids is there a way to address that so it's age appropriate and not such a shock to students when they get to you when they get to college and learn all of this ugliness for the 1st time. while slavery stayed in the cast i think question how used the daughter of ray shard brooks who was killed on the day of her birthday going to live with the reality that her
3:14 pm
whopper was killed by police officers at this country so. that's that's the alternative i mean our children are living through a period in america in history and are always to live through. through violence they steamed in the streets on television and there's no way to sugar coat the institution of slavery i think part of what we could do if there were a truth and reconciliation. project is to say disc happened it was terrific we do know. that it was right at the beginning and now our nation is actually moving to make amends who are our past deeds and in fact that would be a phenomenal model for young people for children to live by all right we'll leave
3:15 pm

3:18 pm
russia has just moved to lift a ban on the popular messaging app telegram which drew praise from some users and criticism from governments for its use of and encryption but even with the ban in place the app was still widely used raising questions about both the reasoning and the timing behind this latest. artie's rachel blevins has been following the story she's joining us now to rachel what has the russian government said about this move well russia's federal communications watchdog made the announcement in a statement in which they confirmed that this band will be lifted after more than 2 years and this all comes after an appeal was submitted by the apps founder now in a statement the telecom watchdog said it decided to withdraw the demand to restrict access to the telegram messenger app then went on to thank the apps founder for showing a readiness to counter terrorism and extremism now it's important to note here that
3:19 pm
even though the government banned the app even though the government moved to ban millions of ip addresses in order to stop people from using it there were still more than 30000000 active users are across russia while this ban was in place and this kind of confounding but i mean why now what's with the timing why the lifting it today while some are speculating that by lifting this ban the government is admitting that it didn't really work in the 1st place and others are pointing out that the government itself was actually using this app in order to share updates about coded 19 now in fact as reports have noted health department and foreign ministry officials had official channels on the app as part of the country's coronavirus task force so there were a lot of questions raised when government officials were using them up but at the same time citizens were supposed to be banned from it so there are some official use of the telegram so what does that mean for their future well when telegram was 1st banned it was because the apps founder refused to give the russian government a backdoor into its encrypted system which they were requesting in order to go
3:20 pm
after terrorism suspects now in that appeal that he submitted to the government earlier this month the abs founder said telegram is working to stop dozens of thousands of attempts to post extremist content and it has developed mechanisms to prevent terror acts across the globe without breaching user privacy now is this promise of end them corruption that is incredibly important for users when. comes to messaging apps like what's up in like telegram and as we saw in what's up was a choir by facebook there were a lot of concerns about whether standards were going to change so now when it comes telegram users still find that very important and they're likely going to hold that up accountable when it comes to protecting user privacy while also going after some of the more extremist content obviously this is the same tech problem that it seems all governments are having so it's not just america will leave right there rachel evans thank you for filing that report thank you. and u.s. secretary of state my pompei oh is taking part in the copenhagen democracy summit
3:21 pm

3:22 pm
masks or some sort of face covering in all public spaces this order was made to help prevent the rise in numbers of infections and even gyms in california which you're looking at there are taking precautions with new workout pods for each person. and elsewhere around the world demonstrators are rallying in water. against the government's handling of this pandemic protesters took their cars and drove in convoys through the streets urging the government to ease the lockdown this comes after the government's announcement to impose more restrictions if the number of cases continue to rise. higher from south africa was a big hit in hollywood after appearing on america's got talent back in 2019 but their dreams are put on hold they are back home after their tour was cancelled due
