to lack melanin as others may have we need to hate them all, we need to castigate them, demonize them, reject them. this is a learned activity and it is child abuse for us to do this. we don't want you to grow up with your innocence, we don't want you to grow up basically accepting one another based on content of character. instead we want you to learn how to hate and when we teach children how to practice evil than that in itself is evil. jeanine: look at the flyers included in the portland public school training. white this, white privilege means you actively benefit from the oppression of black indigenous people of color, and educator in a system of oppression is either a revolutionary or oppressive. that stood out to me.
are teachers in china focused on revolution or math and science to become number one in the world and defeat the us? >> exactly. our friends and foes abroad are laughing at us because literally we are teaching the next generation how to hate, how to not unify, not be better based on cultural differences, how to connect and maximize those differences and make a better united states. we are saying we want to completely eliminate whiteness and therefore we want you kids to learn how to hate what would otherwise be friends or family members even. this is a very dangerous trajectory we are on. i believe it is child abuse. one of the things, when we had 911 we encourage children we don't want you to judge an
entire group of people that happen to be from the middle east based on the actions of a few. the chinese virus last year, we encouraged our children again please don't overlay hate on the entire asian community. we want you to embrace them because you can't overlay before they do that but when it comes to race, late all of the guilt, every thing that happens onto whiteness and therefore reject. >> a fascinating point you just made. what is the end goal? maybe you can answer that question in a few minutes or have a whole segment or show about it. appreciate your time and insights. >> 18 after the hour. the vice president of minneapolis the council claims she was held hostage by

busy july 4th holiday weekend and lack of truck drivers is one major reason why. more than 43 million drivers prepared to hit the road this independence day and some gas stations are already running low on gas. you to discuss is co-owner of jk trucking, nice to see you, thanks for being here. why is there a shortage of drivers? >> the driver shortage has been intensified by the pandemic, 25% of drivers are short. it has happened, the gas tanker drivers, these drivers were working all the time and here comes covid, we shut down, there is no more need to deliver so much fuel so these drivers, not only did not have a job but were also furloughed so supporting a family you go find a job somewhere else and this is what happened at this point and it is
causing a big gap to get all this fuel where it needs, we are starting to have these shortages. >> are you surprised when you see these numbers, 42% spike in gas prices compared to this time last year and then look at the 20% of tank trucks in the us being parked due to this driver shortage. i wonder what happened to this profession going forward. i know oil tank drivers specifically have a special set of qualifications, how far do you think recruitment will be in this field then? >> for tenure drivers it is hard because you are hauling gasoline, diesel, extremely flammable, hazardous, has to be above average, to get someone to do this will takes training and skill because it takes a little bit longer to haul gasoline and diesel flammables other than
home goods. there is going to be a problem in the future. not only that but a lot of these truck drivers, much older people, it is going to take -- is going to take over the jobs when all these drivers retire. >> a big question. when you look at those numbers we just pulled up and already seeing a gas shortage in some states if things don't change and more people don't come back onto the job almost immediately due see this getting worse in the upcoming months? >> definitely getting worse, not the first time we've run out of fuel, the pipeline was shut down, we ran out of fuel, texas ran out of fuel and it wreaked havoc, not only do these diesel fuel to move these trucks but for example us, we use it to cool and refrigerate the perishable products that we
haven't. not only the trucks. but these products will go back. jillian: let's hope that doesn't happen, thank you for joining us, appreciate your time. todd: a stunning ruling from the pennsylvania supreme court letting bill cosby leave prison a free man. britney spears's exclusive testimony wasn't enough to convince the judge in her conservatorship case, breaking down both cases next. a decision from the ncaa changed college sports forever, what it means for student-athletes. - i'm sure you've heard how grammarly improves your writing, but let me tell you how grammarly business helped my sales team. look at simon. since simon's team started using grammarly business, we've closed more deals. with suggestions to sharpen his writing clarity and overall confidence, simon's pitches always stick the landing,

>> he was given almost 3 year unwanted vacation but as we have always said this isn't about bill cosby but reforming the, judicial system. >> mister cosby has always used his celebrity, his name, his likeness -- >> you to break it down is, defense attorney robert bianchi, thanks for being here. you say in their first 3 conviction to satisfy the me too movement the prosecutors lost sight of what would happen on appeal. explain. >> from the beginning of this case those of us who really do try work as lawyers were shocked that the amount of evidence the judge allowed in the second trial, the first trial they allowed a little about as we thought was wobbly. and the second trial the judge reversed themselves and allowed a lot more evidence, character assassination evidence to be introduced. the thing the court found here,
cosby got duped. back in the day when the first district attorney was reviewing this case the district attorney indicated they were not going to file criminal charges against bill cosby. therefore he did not have a fifth amendment right to remain silent which compelled him to speak in the civil case filed against him where he made certain admissions that later on a new prosecutor came in, we don't agree with that first prosecutor, we will prosecute cosby and to add insult to injury we will use the same deposition testimony as evidence against him in the trial that ultimately the supreme court reversed. they said that was a violation of fundamental due process that cosby was duped into giving the civil deposition and they reversed course and used it against him and that was unfair. it was unbelievable to me, this was a judicial spanking, not
only reversed the conviction but won't allow prosecutors to re-prosecute them and hours later is he is back home at his dining room table. amazing. >> have you ever seen prosecutors act like this? the first prosecutor acting like a broker to facilitate a civil settlement and in the second case the prosecutor going back on the deal the first agreed to. >> when i took over the prosecutor's office when i was appointed prosecutor the rule is you abide by the decisions of the previous office, it's not about the prosecutor but the office. when i came in i may not have liked certain things my predecessor in done but the fact was as a matter fundamental due process i accepted them because it was the office that offer that i didn't reverse course on that. >> the phrase but for, or you legal books when you go to that, bill cosby would not have given that testimony.
judge denied britney spears's request for her father to be removed as conservator. if you gave this decision to the people jamie spears would be out, britney spears would be in charge, the judge in this case saw something, in a typical conservatorship what rationale could the judge have had to say we've got to keep jamie on? >> greg us the question that way. it is not about what the public thinks. i understand is a lot of passion on both sides of either of these issues but this is about what the law says that the fact is with this conservatorship it is being monitored by the court and the court is basically saying factually she still needs the conservatorship because britney
wants to be relieved of any conservatorship. this judge is finding factually she still needs a conservatorship and with regard to her father, he's doing everything that is appropriate and it is being reviewed by the court so there's no need for the change. >> i wonder if society takes a look at conservatorships in general because i don't think 99% of american new what one was before britney came to before but we will see. we appreciate your time. >> 37 after the hour, trouble appears to be brewing in vice president kamala harris's office, staff members reportedly dealing with low morale into internal tensions. unnamed age tell politico it is an abusive environment where people are thrown under the bus. harris at stop spokesperson pushing back telling politico, quote, we are not making rainbows and bunnies all day. what i hear is that people have hard jobs. welcome to the club. the search is over the woman sought for causing a crash during the tour de france. local authorities arresting her on the west coast, she caused this major collision by holding up a sign on the side of the road. the woman could reportedly face
