  • ♪ ♪ ♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'RE BACK WITH THE AUTHOR OF "LONG TIME COMING: RECKONING

  • WITH RACE IN AMERICA," MICHAEL ERIC DYSON.

  • WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THOSE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO SAY BASICALLY

  • AMERICA IS ON A DEMOGRAPHIC TRAJECTORY TO CHANGE OUR

  • ATTITUDES ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS, RACE BEING ONE OF THEM, THAT

  • BASICALLY, THE NEXT GENERATION WILL REPLACE THE PRESENT

  • GENERATION THAT WILL NOT ACCEPT THE CHANGES THAT NEED TO BE

  • MADE?

  • >> YEAH, THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE WITH THAT IS THAT WHEN YOU LOOK

  • AT THE TIKI TORCH BEARERS, THEY WERE YOUNG, WELL COIFFED, HAD

  • NICE HAIR DOS, BUT THEY WERE PROMOTING NEOFASCISM AND

  • NEO-NAZIISM.

  • IN OTHER WORDS, JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE YOUNGER DOESN'T MEAN

  • YOU'RE MORE ENLIGHTENED.

  • YOU HAVE TO HAVE A REAL INTENTION TO CHANGE THE WORLD AS

  • WE SEE IT.

  • A PEW REPORT STUDY SAID THAT EXCEPT FOR INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE,

  • MILLENNIALS THINK THE SAME THING ABOUT RACE AS THE BOOMERS DID.

  • SO STOP WITH THE "OKAY BOOMER," STUFF, BECAUSE YOU THINK THE

  • SAME THINGS THAT THEY DID.

  • AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, BESIDES INTERRACIAL

  • RELATIONSHIPS, THEY'RE PRETTY MUCH ON THE SAME PAGE.

  • THAT MEANS WE'VE GOT REAL WORK TO DO, AND JUST BEING YOUNG

  • AIN'T ENOUGH.

  • >> Stephen: THE BOOK ENDS WITH A PLEA FOR HOPE.

  • HOW DO YOU STAY HOPEFUL?

  • WHAT GIVES YOU HOPE RIGHT NOW?

  • WELL, YOU KNOW, LOOK, BESIDES WATCHING YOUR SHOW AND SEEING

  • YOU DIRECTLY THE MOST EDIFYING VENOM AGAINST THE MOST VICIOUS

  • PRESIDENCY WE'VINE SEEN, I DIG INTO MY FAITH.

  • AND I SAY, LOOK, HOWARD THURMAN, ONE OF THE GREAT MISTACS IN MY

  • TRADITION, SAID YOU CAN'T REDUCE YOUR DREAMS TO THE EVENT YOU'RE

  • CONFRONTING RIGHT NOW.

  • THE THING YOU'RE CONFRONTING RIGHT NOW MAY LOOK LIKE A HUGE

  • OBSTACLE.

  • BUT OUR SLAVE FORPARENTS ENVUGZED THE WORLD.

  • YOU CAN BE A PRISONER OF EVENT OR A PRISONER OF HOPE.

  • I CHOOSE TO BE A PRISONER OF HOPE.

  • NO MATTER HOW DARK IT GETS, IT CAN BE BRIGHTER.

  • NO MATTER HOW HORRIBLE THINGS LOOK, THEY CAN BE MADE BETTER.

  • AND NO MATTER HOW WE HAVE GIVEN IN TO THE WORST ANGELS OF OUR

  • SOULS, WE CAN APPEAL TO THE BETTER ANGELS OF OUR NATURE.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, CAN THE TIME IS AVAILABLE NOW.

  • MICHAEL ERIC DYSON, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

  • MICHAEL, THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.
