10:07 pm
celebrate. but a day to reflect where we've been and exactly where we must go. and so being in in the white house with the president. vice president kamala harris was very humbling for me. and i share that because i worked on this for many years. i've always held to keep the we celebrated this as a child. i was born and raised in el paso, texas. but my grandfather was born in galveston, texas in 1875, 10 years after general granger told us finally in texas that we were free and my great grandmother was born in in a town right outside of galveston. so this is been really personal for me since of child in many respects. and finally, i'm so. so excited and pleased president biden signed this as a federal holiday because now i think
10:08 pm
more people are beginning to understand the plight of african americans. and yes, how far we've come. but let me take those chains of slavery, 401 years ago. have not all been cracked and we witnessed that. and we know that because we know that systemic racism and structural racism is so embedded in the dna. and that's our job is to buy continue to fight for racial equity. and just we know that those pages of history have been stuck together for so long. you mentioned they're starting to come apart what happened with the juneteenth. >> celebration. the story juneteenth. obviously what happened with the tulsa. massacre, the race massacre there in oklahoma. some of those stories are starting to start are really starting to come to life people starting to understand them. but what more needs to be done moving forward. what do we take from this moment right now. and how do we kind of push ford some of those actions that still need to be had. we know that the george floyd policing act
10:09 pm
still remains in stuck in congress right now. even though that there are several folks on both sides of the aisle who are supporting it. how does something like that or what do we take away from this moment to push forward the conversation. >> well, first, this is a truth telling you know, they tried to wipe out the stories of african americans such as tell us when i was commemorating the one 100th anniversary of the massacre that took place. now states are trying to ban critical race theory that teaches about race and races, laws and policies. so what we have to do is we have to insist the african american community in our history be seen finally in the black lives do matter. but we also have to fight to make sure police the mass incarceration as a result of of biased and unjust laws are we are we do this, but we also have to make sure voting rights. hr one for the people
10:10 pm
act hr the john lewis voting rights act that we get those past. they have to go together and we hope that the senate will loop because what they're trying to do now is take us back to the days passed just grow. they're taking us back to the days where african americans were considered only 3 visible human being. and so we need to take this moment of and recognize how far we've come, what it means ballot and i've talked to so many african-americans feel bill honored and feel like they're being recognized in their struggles. under be in big are becoming understood. but now the next step is to pass laws and policies and and close the gap. so that means hr 40. reparations. we have to have that federal commission to study and develop reparation is because we can not repair the damage without taking into account the damage that has been for 400 years and also my bill hr 19 called bridge truth racial healing and
10:11 pm
transformation commission. we've got to pass the george floyd justice in policing act and so many injustices. so still exist. and so in every single policy at every level of government. our young people thank god are insisting that we look every policy and ensure that racial equity and justice is part of we're working for the future. >> there's still a lot more work that needs to be done in advancing racial equality for sure. and representative barbara lee, we appreciate you also addressing the violence in oakland that happened today during a juneteenth celebration. it was also great to get your perspective on. that is certainly not the way we want to have this first time that this holiday is being recognized federally a day. people are getting off that this violence would overshadow something like that. >> yes, community is resilient community. it's a beautiful community. people understand that we have a lot of work to
10:12 pm
do. but in many ways unified on so many fronts. but in so many other ways, the violence is still with us and it's it's and they're lot of reasons we can talk about why. but let me tell you one thing. we have got to have peace in our community and we have to get these guns off the street and i want to thank all of those young people and ministers and everyone who has worked for so long to try to get this gun stop so many people. you know, i know i have been killed and did our children. and these family members. these are children. these are mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters of people in. >> and we have to take this moment joe 19 as we're commemorating our history in this country and what it meant to be free to have this type carnage take place in in my district is just is overwhelmingly heartbreaking and i hope people understand
10:13 pm
we've got to demand that gun safety and gun control laws be passed and we have got to make sure that these gun owners out of state. stop selling these gun so that they can stay out of our community because they're not allowed to sell them. >> in the 13th congressional district, but they bring a man anyway because there are no federal loss to keep them from bringing a man so it's a serious here we go again. but i hope this is another wake-up call that both send a signal that we're not going to tolerate this kind of gun violence anymore in in california in my district throughout the country. you know, the family of that 21 year-old man now having the unenviable task of trying to plan his funeral. >> after just out on the lake. congresswoman barbara lee, thank you so much for your time. as joining us here on kron, 4 news. thank you. nice being with thank you, con
