8:07 am
many people can't get health care we have the highst number of people dying of preventable causes, huge rates of unemployment students leaving college with a tremendous student debt and coming into a market where they can't find a job 64% of americans, who can't with stand a $1,000 emergency, so that is pretty disruptive i think that we are not -- our needs are not being met congress is not listening we need to be out on the streets and say this is unacceptable. they have a four day permit the protest rally movement starts today whether or not they extend that, as we have seen in new york really remains to be seen and depends how much momentum they get going and how many choose to stay and have their voices heard. an update in the next hour stacy cohen back to you. 7 minutes past the hour. let's focus back on the par tin luther -- martin luther king memorial set to be opened in 10 days. the storm of controversy
8:08 am
surrounding the memorial continues, poet and author maya anglou was the first to raise concern about the pair phrased quote i am quoting i was a drum major for justice here is the actual quote from dr. king if you want to say that i was a drum major, say that i was a drum major for justice. say that i was a drum major for peace i was a drum major for rightouseness and all the other shallow things will not matter. still getting a lot of talk including if washington post. ette -- the washington post. joining us now ed, owe key. as it gets closer to the new date for the dedication this controversy is still here. >> that's right interior secretary who overseas national park service was can be the about this yesterday as a -- was asked about this yesterday at a breakfast and he said he is concerned perhaps the
8:09 am
designers didn't properly paraphrase what dr. king wanted to say. the national park service is very committed to accurate portrayals of american history i think his concern is that this is a completely paraphrased quote i was a drum major for justice, peace and rightouseness when really it was four sentences as opposed to one. a lot of people said dr. king was not that arrogant he wouldn't have said that and the entire sermon was about the evils of self-promotion people walking up to that memorial are looking thinking that seems a little odd, not keeping what he was about. >> what can be done at this point can they recarve something into the memorial. >> sure designers said over and over again we have no plans to redo it, it was meant to be a paraphrase and that they wanted to keep it short and succinct part of the reason it is so short and succinct they had to go back and redesign the statue there was concerns about the
8:10 am
way he was posing in the original design they said look some times these are not meant to be 100% accurate they are trying to consolidate the history of some body in these quotes and that is what they did here. >> it is fascinating when we thing about it now you thing this will continue to get more and more attention obviously during the dedication we will hear more about it is this something that could go away at this point or will there be an effort. >> the secretary said they will take this up after the dedication sunday the 16th not only are they concerned about the quote but there are concerns about the restoration around the memorial they had to rip up the lawn, they had to realign parking there are concerns about sidewalks they need $3 million to finish all the work and the memorial foundation has the obligation to raise that money, and then the government will spend it and fix up the place. that and other concerns we wouldn't get into. do you thing we will see this turn out to -- do you
8:11 am
think we will see this turn out to what we expect >> they said expect a much smaller percentage of people to show up because they made arrangements in late august and didn't happen. >> people had to change travel plans because of mother nature. read ed's column, federal eye on washington. 8:11 a.m. thursday morning coming up next we will check out other stories making headlines including a warning for commuters, plus author storey is out with a new book asking what it means to be black in 2011 we will talk to him when fox 5 morning news returns íf ú b@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

8:19 am
thought about but few tried to answer, the author of the new book called who is afraid of post blackness what it means to be black now we are honored you are joining us in studio good morning. >> what is happening. >> you had a book signing yesterday and in dc how did it go. it was a great, a hundred people came out sadly we had to turn a couple people away people really want to talk about this stuff what does it mean to be black now how has it changed i think in some ways things have changed a lot from our parents and grandparents generations in a couple ways we have more identity options this idea there is a way to be black, authentic, legitimate way to be black is ridiculous, educational options, regional options, class options, all these things but the nature of racism has changed. >> that was my question. >> it is not over. >> you are not saying this is post racial it is post black.
8:20 am
>> yeah, post racial doesn't mean anything post black is talking ability the complexity of what it -- about the complexity of what it means to be black the racism our parents and grandparents dealt with was like a bull running down the middle of the street, it was binary they knew what was happening and tried the deal with it. what we do now is more fog we see it, know it is there but you can't grab it or show some body there is very few smoking guns now days, we deal with this it makes you crazy like i know it is there but i kept convincing myself but i can't go tell my boyfriend. >> am i being followed and targeted type of racism. yes, in terms of glass ceilings, micro aggressions and all these little waves that even people who are non-racist may say things that trigger things and it is very complicated the world of racism now it is much more subtle and
8:21 am
nuance racism as opposed to what our parentgrandparents dealt with >> i want the get the definition of post black. >> it is a term that comes from the art world originally artists that wanted to be rooted in but not constrained by backness wanted to work -- blackness wanted to work with black traditions but wanted to talk about black subjects or not when they wanted to. i started to see that in the real world, black people a bit more willing to do whatever they wanted to do with the world barack obama was an initial inspiration on this book in terms of he is just doing blackness the way he wants to, without thinking about you know traditional black normative behaviour i am thinking we are in a post black era you can take as much freedom to be black as you want to be. the question becomes how do you not lose your identity in a
8:22 am
post black world. >> but you are free to shape your identity the way you want to shape it, if there is 40 million black people there are 40 million ways to be black no one can tell you well, you like sushi that is not what black people do. you have visited moscow that is not what black people do. it is portable it goes with you to the sushi place, moscow, come back to dc and then you go to jamaica. you interviewed 105 prominent black folks to talk about what it means to be black today how different were the stories and it was interesting you asked what was the most racist thing that happened to you. >> racism still effects us deeply, one of the interesting things, some of the older people told stories, racism is very obvious, jesse jackson struggling the get a book from the public library which then leads to his career as becoming an activist beginning of his
8:23 am
act simple. some body later on is -- activism. some body later on is talking about nuance. and meaning of racism is the same, you as a black person are less worthy, less intelligent but the locus of it, jesse jackson public library, in the 60s. you get into a fortune 500 now i am dealing with power some body says something you come into a glass ceiling or micro aggression, red lining these sorts of things,. >> watermelon and chicken legs. >> and do we eat that today. that is a whole issue. >> really interesting, before i let you go, this question, was put to you, i would suspect in your lifetime because your up bringing was not what we would
8:24 am
consider the traditional black experience so you have decided to explore it have you found any answers for yourself or were you confident going in? >> that is an interesting question i deal with a lot of myself in this book it becomes a personal journey one thing some people mistake is that when you grow up around a bunch of white people, going to private school or what have you, you are hyper aware of race there is no assimilation there is no forgetting you are black you are constantly thinking about what it means to be black and how that changes the situation you are in. so you know it is never -- you know some people seem to think that blackness is like milk and then the longer it goes out of the refrigerator, the hood it seems to spoil. not so at all. >> so interesting talking to you if you want to meet toray he is at howard university this evening signing at the bookstore. >> the book is a conversation we will talk to the people >> nice to meet you.
8:25 am
>> nice to meet you. >> sounds like they better get there early if it is anything like yesterday. a lot of people will show up. coming up, next half hour, the death of apple's steve jobs. we will talk about his battle with pancreatic cancer >> later we will be live at the national arboretum, real pretty we will check with tony coming up as well. fox 5 morning news continues after this

8:32 am
steve jobs we were told had a rare form of pancreatic cancer and we know in the past it was seen as a death sentence but a rare form what was this illness? >> you know you have to thing about the pancreas as two organs, endocrine function, hormonal like a gland and the other part is involved in digest that is where we see pat ray swayze, michael landon, those deaths that occurred rapidly that was that type of pancreatic cancer what steve jobs had was endocrine type his tumour was active in the sense it would secrete things, a hormone a very different variety of cancer slower growing, if picked up earlier the prognosis is a bit better, so i think that is why we saw such an unusual series of treatments and when he had that liver transplant you mow we
8:33 am
weren't totally -- you know, we weren't totally sure we assumed it had spread to his liver, but it could have been other factors that could have contributed to that trance plantation as well. >> seems like, granted it is different for everybody but when you hear of pancreatic cancer as soon as you hear about it, you often lose that person a few months later seems he out live that had diagnosis a bit. >> when you look at the projections the five year survival rate for his type of cancer at the stage he was diagnosed at was 20% you got to thing he did beat the odds and did some other treatments he did something not actually fda approved in the united states he went to switzerland, we are hearing he had radiation that was tagged to the hormone which the tumour would preferentially absorb targeted radiation therapy that would go to the tumour wherever it was in his
8:34 am
body. that is in clinical trials in the u.s. here in texas. so he did those things, he has a liver transplant a lot of what we would thing to be relatively unorthodox treatment for cancer. dr. jill thank you so much for shedding a little light on what this illness was and as you said it is a very sad day thank you. >> yes. well, yesterday, the world also lost a respected civil rights leader, fred shuttlesworth was a pastor add bethels baptist church in birmingham alabama during the civil rights movement he and dr. king it was quoted he said dr. king picked up the fight and did what he started basically was able the bring it to, fruition and the push for civil rights and equality in the mid-1950s. his home near his church was bombed this is how he dedescribed what a police officer -- described what a police officer told him after the bombing. >> i tell you what i do, you
