A Kenosha Church’s “Black Lives Matter” Sign Burned Down, But That’s Not Stopping them

The “Black Lives Matter” sign owned by the church where Rev. Eric Carlson preaches completely burned down — and the church building itself only narrowly escaped damage. But Carlson is quick to tell people that he’s not worried about property, but about people — and how Kenosha is processing the police shooting of Jacob Blake, as well as the death of two protesters.

“The faith community winds up being kind of the trauma ministry,” he said to VICE News, “the social response when the government is failing.” But when President Trump decided to visit, part of the city braced itself for conflict. Others decided to focus elsewhere.

Gretchen Carlson Gives Advice To Younger Self

Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson spoke to Business Insider about what advice she’d giver her twenty-year-old self. In 2016, Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News founder Roger Ailes. Carlson’s allegations led to his resignation and a $20 million settlement. The following is a transcript of the video.

Gretchen Carlson: I like to think of myself as a reformed perfectionist, and the way that you become that is by taking more risks. And taking those risks, I wish I would have done more earlier on in my career because what you learn from taking the risk is that you become a more unique person in the end and even in television you know trying to do something a little bit more out of the box instead of trying to be so much like that anchor mode, it took me a while to actually have the courage to take those risks just professionally, so that’s the biggest advice that I could give to my younger self or to really anyone not even in the TV business but just in any aspect of their life.

I have a 12-year-old son and a 14-year-old daughter and I’ve seen my daughter especially exhibit that bravery and telling me that she did what she did and standing up for herself because she saw her mom do it. And in the end, that’s what we all want for our children. We want to be able to pass along that gift of courage and I want that for other parents out there. It’s why I wrote the book. I mean I hope they’ll pass it along to their children as well, especially high school and college-age kids. This is where it starts. We have to raise our kids in equal fashion and give our kids the same opportunities and especially our boys, to be raised to respect women, not only in the home but when they get into the workplace then they exhibit that same amount of respect for their female colleagues. It’s essential to stop this harassment cycle.

Gretchen Carlson On Why More Sexual Harassment Cases Aren’t Public

In 2016, former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment suit against Roger Ailes, the founder of Fox News. Carlson won a $20 million settlement and Ailes was eventually fired. However, Carlson says that most women’s sexual harassment stories are kept secret because of a legal loophole. Following is a transcript of the video.

Gretchen Carlson: Now the woman’s not working at the company any more and the harasser can stay and nobody ever knows about it.

In 2016, Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News founder Roger Ailes. Carlson’s allegations led to his resignation and a $20 million settlement.

Carlson: So the Supreme Court ruled on arbitration clauses more than 20 years ago. Making them an accessible vehicle for corporations to put them in the contracts. So I guess the excuse was so that we wouldn’t clog the courts with workplace disputes. The problem is that forced arbitration is secret. And so when a woman comes forward with a sexual harassment claim and she has a forced arbitration clause in her contract, nobody ever knows about it. She’s basically given up her 7th Amendment right to an open jury process. And so she’s sexually harassed, she files a claim, her claim goes to arbitration, the company in most cases picks the arbitrator. Only 20 percent of the time does the woman or the employee win. There’s not the same amount of witness, witnesses that you can call or depositions. And there are no appeals. So the biggest factor is the secrecy element. Now the woman’s not working at the company anymore and the harasser can stay and nobody ever knows about it. So that’s inherently wrong to me. It’s outrageous that women are being silenced in this way on this specific issue. So what I’ve been trying to do on Capitol Hill is take the secrecy out of it. So I’ve been meeting with senators for the last year to try to make this a bipartisan effort. Nothing gets done on Capitol Hill right now. So I know and understand that we need to have bipartisan support on this for it to ever become a reality. And so on this issue Democrats tend to be on my side. I’m really working hard to get Republicans to at least do baby steps and get rid of the secrecy element. And wouldn’t it be wonderful that we would come forward with a bill that would support women and might even wind up on Donald Trump’s desk.
