 >> THE WORLD'S LARGEST ACTIVE VOLCANO, MAUNA LOA IS ERUPTING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NEARLY FOUR DECADES. WHILE THERE'S NO RAGE OR THREAT TO RESIDENTS ON HAWAII'S BIG ISLAND RIGHT NOW, OFFICIALS ARE URGING EVERYBODY TO -- THE DIRECTION OF THE LAVA FLOW CAN QUICKLY CHANGE, POTENTIALLY LEAVING ENTIRE COMMUNITIES AT RISK. EMOTIONS RAN HIGH INSIDE OF A BUFFALO COURT TODAY, THE GUNMAN ACCUSED OF KILLING TEN PEOPLE IN A SUPERMARKET SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE BLACK PLEADED GUILTY TO MURDER ATTEMPTED MURDER, AND DOMESTIC TERRORISM MOTIVATED BY HATE. THE JUDGE READ THE NAMES OF EACH VICTIM ONE BY ONE, AND MANY VANLEY'S OF THE VICTIMS WERE IN TEARS HEARING HOW EACH ONE DIED. OVERSEAS TONIGHT, THE UNPRECEDENTED NATIONWIDE PROTEST IN CHINA, RESIDENTS THERE ARE FURIOUS OVER THE EXTENT OF COVID LOCKDOWNS. THE GOVERNMENT'S ZERO COVID POLICY, HOW A BLANK PIECE OF PAPER IS BECOMING THE SYMBOL OF AN ENTIRE MOVEMENT, AND A LOOK AT IT NEXT. TONIGHT, WE'RE TRACKING A NEW COAST TO COAST STORM AT LEAST 18 STATES ARE NOW ON ALERT FOR HEAVY SNOW AND HIGH WINDS. THEN THERE'S THE PROSPECT OF TORNADOES IN PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. ROB MARCIANO WILL TIME IT ALL OUT. TONIGHT, THE NATION'S LARGEST NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBE IS DEMANDING THAT THE U.S. GOVERNMENT KEEP A PROMISE THAT IT MADE NEARLY 200 YEARS AGO TO GIVE THEM A PLACE IN CONGRESS. >> IT'S A STORY ABOUT A PROMISE ME, AND IT'S 187 YARDS, STILL NOT FULFILLED. >> ABSOLUTELY. NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT. >> INSIDE THE COMPLEX WORLD OF MARRIAGE, IN FAILED MARRIAGE. WHAT HAPPENS ONCE IT ENDS AND HOW YOU MOVE FORWARD THIS ACTOR HAS MORE ON THE EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER RIDE THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF THE TV SERIES. >> IT SEEMS LIKE HE IS A GUY WHO EVERYTHING IS FALLING ON, AND HE'S STRUGGLING TO MAINTAIN HIS SANITY. THE WRITER SO CLEVERLY SHIFTS YOUR PERSPECTIVES THAT YOUR ALLEGIANCE STARTS SHIFTING BETWEEN MY WIFE, EX-WIFE, AND ME. >> GOOD EVENING EVERYONE, I'M LINDSAY DAVIS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STREAMING WITH US. SOME UNUSUAL ACTIVITY IN HAWAII TONIGHT, THE WORLD'S LARGEST ACTIVE VOLCANO IS ERUPTING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NEARLY FOUR DECADES. THE ROUGHLY 200,000 RESIDENTS OF HAWAII'S BIG ISLAND ARE BEING WARNED TO STAY ALERT. MAUNA LOA BEGAN ERUPTING OVERNIGHT IN DRAMATIC VIDEO CAPTURING THE GLOWING LAVA. YOU CAN SEE IT THERE, ASH SPLITTING OUT OF THE VOLCANO RIGHT NOW. IT'S SO BIG THAT IT TAKES UP MORE THAN HALF OF THE ISLAND. THE POPULATION ON THE BIG ISLAND HAS ROUGHLY DOUBLED SINCE THE LAST ERUPTION, AND MANY OF THOSE LIVING THERE RIGHT NOW WE'RE NOT AROUND 38 YEARS AGO. TONIGHT, RESIDENTS ARE BEING WARNED TO BE READY IN CASE THE LAVA OR DEBRIS STARTS TO THREATEN COMMUNITIES. PORTIONS OF THE BIG ISLAND WERE UNDER AN ASH ADVISORY TODAY. ONE BIG QUESTION IS THAT WE START THE WEEK WITH A BIG IMPACT ON TOURISM. SOUTHWEST AIRLINES IS ALREADY MOVING TO CANCEL SEVERAL FLIGHTS TODAY AS VOLCANIC ASH CAN POSE MAJOR PROBLEMS FOR AIRPLANES. WE HAVE THE GOVERNOR OF HAWAII STANDING BY TO TALK WITH US. FIRST, CHIEF NATURAL CORRESPONDENT MATT GUTMAN LEADS US OFF. >> TONIGHT, NEW HELICOPTER VIDEO CAPTURING THE FIERY AWAKENING. ERUPTING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 38 YEARS. THE WORLD'S LARGEST ACTIVE VOLCANO, ROARING BACK TO LIFE AFTER ITS LONGEST DORMANT PERIOD ON RECORD. >> YOU CAN SEE CLEARLY SEE THAT THAT'S LAVA COMING DOWN. THERMAL CAMERAS SHOWING THE MOMENT THAT -- AND SENDING LAVA GUSHING OUT FROM THE SUMMIT CRATER. TIMELESS VIDEO CAPTURING THE BLAST OF ASH DEBRIS AND MOLTEN ROCK. LAVA STREAMS ARE FLOWING DOWN PART OF THE VOLCANO, BUT AUTHORITIES SAY THAT THEY ARE NOT THREATENING COMMUNITIES DIRECTLY. THERE IS CONCERN ABOUT FALLING ASH, PEOPLE WITH RESPIRATORY ILLNESSES WARNED TO STAY INDOORS. ANYBODY GOING OUTSIDE IS TOLD TO WEAR A MASK. SHELTERS ARE BEING OPENED AS A PRECAUTION. >> WE ARE WAY OVERDUE. WE WERE WAY OVERDUE FOR A MAUNA LOA ERUPTION. WE HAD PREPARED. >> SOUTHWEST AIRLINES, KILLING SEVERAL FIGHTS TO AND FROM THE BIG ISLAND. MONICA LOWELL MAKES UP MOST OF THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII, AND 50 MILES DOWN FROM ITS SUMMIT, IT CONNECTS WITH THE OTHER MAINEVILLE KENO. CALLOWAY'S ERUPTION IN 2015 DESTROYED 700 HOMES, AS WE SAW FIRSTHAND BACK THEN. >> YOU CAN SEE THAT LAVA HERE, THIS IS FISHER 17 AND SOME OF THE FOUNDING HIS GUN HUNDREDS OF FEET IN THE AIR. WHAT YOU'RE SEEING OVER THERE, THE ROARS OF STEAM AND GAS FLYING OUT OF THESE VENTS THAT STUFF IS 2000 DEGREES. >> AUTHORITIES SAY THAT LAVA FROM TODAY'S ERUPTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SUMMIT AREA, BUT ALERTED COMMUNITIES THAT POTENTIAL RISK TO REVIEW THEIR EVACUATION PROCEDURES. >> LINDSEY, VOLCANOLOGISTS THIS SAY THAT THERE IS A BIT OF GOOD NEWS. FIRST, THEY KNOW THE PERSONALITY OF THIS VOLCANO AFTER DOZENS OF ERUPTIONS OVER THE LAST HUNDRED AND 40 YEARS OR SO. THEY SAY THAT TYPICALLY, THE HEAVIEST ERUPTIONS ARE IN THE FIRST FEW HOURS AFTER THAT IT TAPERS OFF. ALSO, THE FACT THAT THESE ERUPTIONS ARE HAPPENING IN THE NORTHEAST, THAT MEANS THAT IT WOULD TAKE WEEKS OF CONTINUOUS GUSHING OF LAVA FOR IT TO ACTUALLY REACH POPULATED AREAS OR INFRASTRUCTURE. THEY SAY THAT THE ONE THING THAT CAN PREDICT IS HOW LONG THIS WILL LAST. LINDSEY? >> SO UNPREDICTABLE. MATT, OUR THANKS TO YOU. JOINING US NOW FROM OUR, IS THE GOVERNOR OF HAWAII. GOVERNOR, WE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME TONIGHT. MAUNA LOA IS SO LARGE, AND WE TALKED ABOUT THIS AT THE TOP OF THE SHOW, IT TAKES UP WOULD HALF OF THE BIG ISLAND. ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10, HOW CONCERNED WOULD YOU SAY YOU ARE ABOUT THE ERUPTION HAPPENING RIGHT NOW? >> I THINK THAT RIGHT NOW, WE'RE NOT THAT CONCERNED. IT'S ABOUT A THREE. AS YOU HAD NOTED, THE ERUPTIONS AND FISSURES ARE VERY HIGH UP ON MAUNA LOA, IN A VERY SPARSELY POPULATED AREA. IN FACT, THE REALLY IS NO COMMUNITY OR STRUCTURES ANYWHERE CLOSE TO THE FISSURES THAT ARE ERUPTING RIGHT NOW. >> ARE YOU CONCERNED, AS WE JUST HEARD FROM MATTHEW, WE DON'T KNOW HOW LONG IT COULD LAST. AND WONDERING ABOUT THE IDEA THAT THE LAVA COULD EVENTUALLY THREATEN POPULATION AREAS AROUND -- OR ARE THEY SO FAR AWAY THAT THAT IS NOT EVEN REALLY TOP OF MIND? >> I DO THINK -- AND WE HAVE ASKED ALL OF OUR RESIDENTS TO REVIEW THE VOLCANO PREPAREDNESS PLANS. IT WILL DEFINITELY BE WEEKS BEFORE IT WOULD BE MOVING INTO ANY POPULATED AREAS. AND SO CERTAINLY, WE ARE ENCOURAGING RESIDENTS TO STAY POSTED, AND KEEP POSTED ON THE CURRENT STATUS OF THE ERUPTIONS. CERTAINLY, I WOULD JUST WANT TO LET OUR VISITORS KNOW IF YOU HAVE PLANNED A VACATION OR TRIP TO HAWAII ISLAND, THIS ERUPTION IS NO REASON TO CHANGE YOUR PLANS. THE ERUPTION IS OCCURRING IN A VERY ISOLATED PART OF HAWAII ISLAND. IT'S VERY FAR AWAY FROM ANY RESORT OR ANY AREAS THAT A VISITOR MIGHT BE GOING TO. >> THAT IS CERTAINLY GOOD NEWS AND INFORMATION FOR POTENTIAL TOURISTS TO HAVE. WE HAVE SEEN SOME FLIGHT DISRUPTIONS, AT LEAST TODAY. IS THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK WILL CONTINUE TO HAPPEN? >> WE ARE CERTAINLY KEEPING OUR -- THE AIRLINES POSTED ON THE ACTIVITY. THE AIR QUALITY IS STILL VERY HIGH. THERE IS NOT A WHOLE LOT OF ASH THAT IS SPEWING FROM THE VOLCANO AT THIS POINT. WE ARE CERTAINLY INFORMING THOSE RESPIRATORY ILLNESS TO THE -- TAKE PRECAUTION, WHERE A MASK IF YOU ARE IN OR ON HAWAII ISLAND. CERTAINLY, THEY SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM THE ERUPTION SITES AND FISHERS THAT ARE SPEWING LAVA. >> THE LAST TIME THAT MAUNA LOA ERUPTED WAS 40 YEARS AGO. I'M SURE YOU ARE A YOUNG MAN AT THAT TIME, BUT I'M CURIOUS IF YOU HAVE MEMORIES OF THAT, AND WHAT YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO LEARN FROM THE LAST TIME THAT THIS ERUPTED. >> I ACTUALLY DID THE VISIT AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE TIME -- WHEN WE HAD MAUNA LOA AND MOUNT KILAUEA ERUPTING AT THE SAME TIME. YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE MAUNA LOA ERUPTION MAKING ITS WAY DOWN THE SLOPES. AS HAS BEEN MENTIONED, IT WILL TAKE WEEKS IF NOT LONGER OF ERUPTIONS OCCURRING IN ORDER FOR THE NORTHEAST RIFT ZONE IRRUPTION TO REACH ANY KIND OF COMMUNITY, OR GET CLOSE TO ANY INFRASTRUCTURE. >> THAT IS CERTAINLY GOOD TO KNOW, AND WE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US TONIGHT. GOVERNOR DAVID EGAN OF HAWAII. >> ALOHA, THANK YOU. >> ALOHA. WE TURN NOW TO BUFFALO, NEW YORK, WHERE THE GUNMAN ACCUSED OF KILLING TEN PEOPLE IN A TOPS SUPERMARKET BECAUSE THEY WERE BLACK. HE HAS PLEADED GUILTY TO MURDE, ATTEMPTED MURDER, AND DOMESTIC TERRORISM MOTIVATED BY HATE. I WILL SPEAK TO A MEMBER OF ONE OF THE VICTIMS FAMILIES IN A MOMENT, BUT FIRST HERE IS ABC'S STEPHANIE RAMOS IN BUFFALO TONIGHT. >> TONIGHT, SIX MONTHS AFTER TEN BLACK PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN A RACIALLY MOTIVATED ATTACK ON A BUFFALO, NEW YORK SUPERMARKET. THE GUNMAN, PLEADING GUILTY. >> IT'S WHAT WE GOT TODAY, WHICH WAS SWIFT JUSTICE. >> THE STATES INDICTMENT AGAINST PEYTON DENDRON INCLUDES FIRST DEGREE MURDER, ATTEMPTED MURDER, AND DOMESTIC TERRORISM MOTIVATED BY HATE, WHICH CARRIES A MANDATORY LIFE SENTENCE. IN THE COURTROOM, HE REPLIED THAT YES, HE IS GUILTY AS THE JUDGE NAMED -- THE 18-YEAR-OLD WAS ARMED WITH A AUTOMATIC RIFLE IN MAY WHEN HE DROVE MORE THAN THREE HOURS FROM HIS HOME TO -- OPENING FIRE IN THE -- LIVESTREAM IN THE CARNAGE FROM A CAMERA MELTED ON HIS HELMET. >> THIS DEFENDANTS OWN HELMETED MOUNTED VIDEO CAMERA ESTABLISHES BEYOND ALL DOUBT THE GRUESOME FACTS OF THE DEFENDANTS CONDUCT. >> PROSECUTORS SAY THAT HE DELIBERATELY PLANNED HIS ATTACK OVER SEVERAL MONTHS. EVEN VISITING THE SUPERMARKET TWICE. HE POSTED A DOCUMENT ONLINE SHORTLY BEFORE THE MASSACRE OUTLINING HOW HE HAD PLANNED TO KILL AS MANY BLACK PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE. >> OUR THOUGHTS, CERTAINLY GOING OUT TO ALL OF THOSE FAMILIES. STEPHANIE JOINS US NOW FROM BUFFALO. STEPHANIE, THE SHOOTER STILL FACES FEDERAL CHARGES, ADDITIONALLY CORRECT? >> THAT'S RIGHT, LINDSEY. HE FACES TWO DOZEN CHARGES, SOME OF WHICH CARRYING THE POSSIBILITY OF THE DEATH PENALTY TONIGHT, LINSEY WE'RE LEARNING FROM HIS PARENTS STAYING THAT THEY ARE HEARTBROKEN OVER THE DEVASTATION THAT THEIR SON HAS CAUSED. LINSEY? >> STEPHANIE RAMOS, OUR THANKS TO YOU. JOINING US NOW IS DARNELL WHITFIELD JUNIOR, AS WE JUST HEARD IN STEPHANIE'S REPORT HIS MOTHER RUTH WHITFIELD WAS AMONG THOSE MURDERED AT THE TOPS SUPERMARKET. DARNELL, WE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TALKING WITH US. IT'S BEEN JUST OVER SIX MONTHS SINCE THE ATTACK, I WOULD LIKE TO START BY ASKING HOW YOU ARE DOING? >> I'VE BEEN BETTER. IT'S A VERY DIFFICULT DAY. >> OF COURSE. YOU ARE IN COURT TODAY. DESCRIBE THAT EXPERIENCE FOR US. >> IT WAS SURREAL BEING IN THE COURTROOM WITH THE PERSON MURDERED MY MOM. AS WELL AS THE OTHER NINE VICTIMS. IT WAS NOT SOMETHING THAT I LOOK FORWARD TO, AND I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO FEEL. IT WAS MUCH TOUGHER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. >> PEYTON GENDRON WAS DESCRIBED AS HAVING A SLIGHT SMIRK ON HIS FACE AS HE WALKED INTO THE COURT. HE'LL BE SENTENCED IN FEBRUARY AND FACES LIFE IN PRISON. WHAT DOES JUSTICE LOOK LIKE FOR YOU? IS THERE SUCH A THING IN THIS CASE? >> THANK YOU FOR ASKING THAT QUESTION. FOR ME, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS JUSTICE. WHATEVER HAPPENS TO THIS PERSON IS NOT GOING TO BRING MY MOTHER BACK. IT'S NOT GOING TO PREPARE THE DAMAGE THAT HE HAS DONE TO OUR FAMILY. IT'S NOT GOING TO PREPARE OUR COMMUNITY. WHATEVER HAPPENS TO HIM IS INCONSEQUENTIAL AT THIS POINT FOR ME. MY CONCERN IS TO LOOK AT HOW WE MITIGATE THE GAINS THAT LED TO THIS SHOOTING. HOW DO WE DEAL WITH THE TRAUMA THAT WAS INFLICTED ON OUR COMMUNITY? WE HAVE LEFT WITH IT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THIS COUNTRY. THOSE ARE THE THINGS I'M CONCERNED ABOUT, AND IF I WAS GOING TO, I WOULD DESCRIBE WHAT JUSTICE LOOKS LIKE TO ME AS DEALING WITH ALL OF THE THINGS THAT WERE SEGREGATED AND UNDER RESOURCES -- AGAINST OUR COMMUNITIES AND OUR PEOPLE. SINCE THIS COUNTRY WAS BIRTHED. >> I IMAGINE THAT THIS WAS YOUR FIRST TIME EVER SEEING THE SHOOTER SINCE MAY? >> I THINK WE'VE SEEN IT ONCE. I HAVEN'T MADE HIM MY FOCUS, I FEEL NO REAL NEED TO SEE HIM. AGAIN, HE'S JUST UPON IN THIS. I'M MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THE SYSTEMS AND ALL OF THE OTHER THINGS THAT ALLOWED HIM TO EXIST IT RADICALIZED HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE, AND SUPPORTED HIM IN THOSE EFFORTS. THOSE ARE THE THINGS THAT I'M TRYING TO FOCUS ON. >> THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY DETAILED HOW GENDER SPECIFICALLY TARGETED THE TOPS STORE WITH THE AIM OF KILLING BLACK PEOPLE, AND HOW HE HIT IT AT THE BUSIEST TIME. WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND AS YOU LISTEN TO THOSE PARTICULAR DETAILS? >> AGAIN, IT'S BECAUSE OF THAT COMMUNITY BEING SEPARATED, IT BEING A FOOD DESERT. ALL OF THOSE THINGS THIS GUY KNEW. HE UNDERSTOOD THAT, HE DID HIS HOMEWORK. HE UNDERSTOOD THAT IT WAS A SEGREGATED COMMUNITY, IT WAS A POOR COMMUNITY. WE'VE SEEN THE IMPACT THAT HAS HAD. A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF PEOPLE, A CERTAIN NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN THERE AT ALL TIMES BECAUSE THEY HAD NO OPTIONS. IF HE KNEW THAT, HOW COULD WE NOT KNOW THAT? NOTHING HAS CHANGED IN TERMS OF THAT. WE ARE STILL VULNERABLE, THAT POPULATION IS STILL SEGREGATED. THOSE CONDITIONS STILL EXIST TODAY. AND SO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS TO COMMUNICATE THOSE ISSUES. >> IN ADDITION TO THE SEGREGATION, AND NOW THE SUMMER YOU TESTIFIED BEFORE CONGRESS CALLING FOR ACTION ON GUN VIOLENCE IN THIS COUNTRY. WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE LAWMAKERS DO? >> DO THEIR JOBS. THEIR JOBS ARE TO SUPPORT US, TO PROTECT US, AND TO SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER. YOU NOT TAKE MONEY FROM GUN LOBBIES AND ALL THE OTHER ENTITIES THAT THEY GET MONEY FROM AND HOLD THEIR INTERESTS ABOVE THE PEOPLES INTERESTS. I WANT THEM TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT, TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE SAFE, WE HAVE EQUITABLE AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES IN THIS COUNTRY. THAT WE ARE TREATED AS HUMAN BEINGS, AND THAT WE HAVE VALUE. I WANT THEM TO CALL IN WHITE SUPREMACY, I WANT THEM TO TREAT IT LIKE THE CANCER THAT IT IS. THAT'S WHAT I WANT THEM TO DO. >> WE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SPEAKING WITH US. WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. >> WE TURN OVERSEAS NOW TO CHINA WHERE MASS PROTESTS CONTINUE AGAINST THE COUNTRY'S SEVERE COVID POLICIES THAT HAVE REMAINED IN PLACE NEARLY THREE YEARS NOW INTO THE PANDEMIC. NEIGHBORHOODS AND BUSINESSES CONTINUALLY PLACED ON LOCKDOWN, THE DISRUPTIONS HAVE AFFECTED MARKETS AROUND THE WORLD, INCLUDING RIGHT HERE IN THE U.S.. HERE'S CHIEF GLOBAL AFFAIRS ANCHOR, MARTHA RADDATZ'S. >> TONIGHT, ACTS OF DEFIANCE NOT SEEN IN THE GENERATION. MASSIVE PROTESTS SPREADING ACROSS CHINA, THE LARGEST SINKS TIANANMEN SQUARE. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE RISKING THEIR OWN SAFETY, MARCHING IN THE STREETS OF SHANGHAI. AND AT THE CAPITAL BEIJING. A RAISED OVER PRESIDENT XI'S ZERO COVID LOCKDOWN. SOME CALLING FOR HIS RESCUE RESIGNATION. DEMONSTRATORS HOLDING UP THOSE BLANK PIECES OF WHITE PAPER, NOW A SYMBOL OF THE MOVEMENT. THEY SAY IT REPRESENTS EVERYTHING THAT THEY WANT TO SAY, BUT CANNOT. THE PROTESTS ERUPTED AFTER THIS FIRE IN THE WESTERN CITY OF URUMQI, KILLING TEN PEOPLE, MANY BLAMING THE GOVERNMENT'S STRICT COVID MEMBER FOR THE DELAYED RESPONSE. DESPITE THE LOCKDOWN'S COVID CASES STILL SURGING IN CHINA, MORE THAN 25,000 NEW INFECTIONS EVERY DAY. TONIGHT, THE WHITE HOUSE NOT CONDEMNING CHINA'S CRACKDOWN, BUT CAN SAYING IN A STATEMENT THAT IT SUPPORTS THE RIGHT TO PREACH FULLY PROTEST, AND ACKNOWLEDGES THE ONGOING LOCKDOWNS COULD IMPACT THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC RECOVERY. >> CLEARLY, CHINA AS A MAJOR ECONOMIC PLAYER, AND CHINA IS STILL STRUGGLING WITH COVID. OBVIOUSLY THERE IS AN IMPACT ON THE ECONOMY. >> MARTHA JOINS US NOW. MARTHA, WE HEARD THE WHITE HOUSE, WEIGHING IN ON THE IMPACT OF THE GLOBAL ECONOMY WHICH WE SAW REFLECTED CERTAINLY IN THE U.S. DARK MARKET TODAY. WHAT ARE CHINESE OFFICIALS DOING AS FAR AS WHETHER THEY SHOULD CONTINUE THESE LOCKDOWN? >> LINSEY, YOU SAW THE DOW PLUNGE 500 POINTS TODAY ABOUT FEARS ON THE CHINESE ECONOMIC RECOVERY, AND THE BROADER SPENCER IT'S ABOUT THE SUPPLY CHAIN. SOME CITIES LIKE BEIJING ANNOUNCED IN EASING OF SOME VERY MINOR COVID RULES. ACROSS THE BOARD, THIS ZERO COVID LOCKDOWNS ARE NOT GOING AWAY ANYTIME SOON. >> MARTHA, OUR THANKS TO YOU AS ALWAYS. FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP REMAINED UNDER FIRE TONIGHT FOR HAVING DINNER AT MAR-A-LAGO WITH THE RAPPER FORMERLY KNOWN AS KANYE WEST, AND A HOLOCAUST DENYING WHITE NATIONALIST. HOWEVER REPUBLICAN LEADERS REACTING? HERE'S ABC NEWS CHIEF WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENT JONATHAN CARL. >> NEARLY A WEEK AFTER DINING AT MAR-A-LAGO WITH KANYE WEST AND NOTORIOUS WHITE SUPREMACIST NICK FUENTES. DONALD TRUMP HAS YET TO CONDEMN THE HATEFUL VIEWS OF EITHER MAN. THE VIEWS ARE WIDELY KNOWN. WEST SAID, QUOTE, I'M GOING TO DEATH CON THREE ON JEWISH PEOPLE. FUENTES, WHO TOOK PART IN A RACIST PROTEST IN CHARLOTTESVILLE IN 2017 DENIED AND EVEN THE HOLOCAUST, SHARING HIS HEART RHETORIC ON HIS ONLINE PROGRAM. >> WE NEED TO HAVE SOMETHING LIKE A WHITE RED UPRISING. >> A SERIES OF STATEMENTS IS THE DINNER THAT WEST SAID ASKED TO MEET WITH HIM, AND BROUGHT ALONG FUENTES. AS FOR THE DINNER, HE SUGGESTED THAT HE ENJOYED IT, AND EXPLAINED WHY HE INVADED WEST IN THE FIRST PLACE. WE GOT ALONG GREAT, HE EXPRESSED NO ANTISEMITISM. I APPRECIATED ALL OF THE NICE THINGS THAT HE SAID ABOUT ME ON TUCKER CARLSON. WHY WOULDN'T I AGREED TO MEET? ALSO, I DIDN'T KNOW NICK FUENTES. THREE OF THE PEOPLE AT THE DINNER SAID THE TRUMP TOOK A LIKING TO FUENTES, ONE OF THEM TELLING ABC THAT TRUMP SAID OF THE WHITE SUPREMACIST, QUOTE, HE GETS ME. IN A VIDEO THAT HE POSTED ON TWITTER AND SINCE DELETED, HE SAID THAT HE LIKES FUENTES BEFORE HE BECAME MORE LOYAL TO HIM. >> TRUMP IS REALLY IMPRESSED WITH NICK. >> IF HE DIDN'T KNOW FUENTES BEFORE THE DINNER, HE DOES NOW. EITHER THE FORMER PRESIDENT NOR EITHER OF FACEBOOK PEOPLE HAVE CONDEMNED THE MAN'S RACIST VIEWS, OR WEST ANTISEMITISM. FORMER VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE CALLED ON TRUMP TO APOLOGIZE. >> TRUMP WAS WRONG TO GIVE A WHITE NATIONALIST, AN ANTISEMITE, AND A HOLOCAUST IN IRON, A SEAT AT THE TABLE. I THINK HE SHOULD APOLOGIZE FOR IT. >> JONATHAN CARL JOINS US NOW. JOHN, HOW ARE REPUBLICAN LEADERS IN WASHINGTON REACTING TO TRUMP'S DINNER GUESTS? >> LINSEY, WE HAVE REACHED OUT TO -- NEITHER OF THEM RESPOND TO AS. RONALD MCDANIEL, THE HEAD OF THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE PUT OUT A STATEMENT SAYING, QUOTE, WHITE SUPREMACY, NEO-NAZISM, HATE SPEECH AND BIGOTRY ARE DISGUSTING AND DO NOT HAVE A HOME IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. MCDANIEL IN HER STATEMENT MADE NO MENTION OF DONALD TRUMP OR THE PEOPLE WITH THOSE VIEWS DID FIND A HOME AT MAR-A-LAGO OVER DINNER WITH THE FORMER PRESIDENT. >> AND AT HIS ACTUAL HOME, WHICH IS INTERESTING. >> HIS ACTUAL HOME. >> OUR THANKS TO YOU AS ALWAYS. NEXT TO THE CROSS-COUNTRY STORM HEADED EAST TONIGHT, AT LEAST 18 STATES ARE UNDER ALERT FOR HEAVY SNOW AND RAIN. THE SNOW, PILING UP IN THE NORTHWEST. A CONVOY OF PLOWS, GIVING A KEY MOUNTAIN PASS OPEN IN WASHINGTON. MILLIONS IN THE SOUTH ARE BRACING FOR SEVERE WEATHER AND A POSSIBLE TORNADO OUTBREAK. LET'S GET RIGHT TO SENIOR METEOROLOGIST ROB MARCIANO WHO IS IN MEMPHIS FOR US TONIGHT. I, ROB. >> HI, LINSEY THIS AREA HAS TWO DISTINCT AREAS OF ENERGY. IT'S GOING TO MAKE FOR A DANGEROUS DAY. LET'S TELL YOU WHAT'S GOING ON. YOU SAW SOME PICTURES WITH SOME SNOW IN THE MOUNTAINS, THE CASCADES, WIND ADVISORIES IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IN THE SOUTHWEST. THAT'S THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE SYSTEM. THE NORTHERN PART, WE'VE GOT WINTER STORM WARNINGS THAT ARE POSTED FROM UTAH TO THE MICHIGAN TOMORROW. A WIDE REACH WITH DISESTEEM AS IT EVOLVES OUT OF THE ROCKIES TOMORROW, DRAGGING A FOOT PLUS'S SNOW. DENVER, THROUGH OMAHA, SIOUX CITY, YOU CAN SEE 48 INCHES, MAYBE ENOUGH TO BE 12 INCHES OF SNOW TOMORROW. IN THE LOWER SECTOR HERE, WE ARE LOOKING FOR STORMS TO POP IN THE MORNING, IN LOUISIANA, AND EVOLVE AS THEY CROSS THE MISSISSIPPI. IT'S A SOUTH OF THUNDERSTORMS THAT CAN PRODUCE LONG TRACK, DAMAGING TORNADOES. MISSISSIPPI, ALABAMA, INTO TENNESSEE, AND THEN IT PUSHES TOWARDS GEORGIA DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. THAT'S WHEN IT GETS A LITTLE BIT WEAKER. IT'S NOT GOING TO BE A PICNIC, BUT IT'S GOING TO BE A LITTLE BIT WEAKER. IT GETS INTO THE NORTHEAST, WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON WHEN WIND AND RAIN, YOU COULD SEE SOME DAMAGING WINDS IN THE NORTHEAST. THE MOST LIFE-THREATENING WEATHER IS GOING TO BE IN THIS AREA TOMORROW FROM MEMPHIS TO JUST NORTH OF JACKSON. LARGE TORNADOES AND POTENTIALLY LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS AS WELL. FOLKS HERE, LINSEY ARE TOLD TO HAVE A PLAN TOMORROW, AND BE READY FOR WHAT MOTHER NATURE BRINGS. MEANWHILE, I DO WANT TO POINT OUT THIS SPECTACULAR VIEW. WE ARE HIGH ATOP THE PYRAMID IN MENSIS, THE BASS PRO SHOPS, IT'S LIKE THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM. SPECTACULAR CITY RIGHT NOW. TOMORROW IS GOING TO BE A WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY. >> I WAS GOING TO SAY, CALM BEFORE THE STORM IS. WRITE A BEAUTIFUL SHOT THERE, WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS TOMORROW. ROB, OUR THANKS TO YOU. >> YOU GOT IT. >> WHEN WE COME, BACK THE REMARKABLE RESCUE FOLLOWING A SMALL PLANE CRASH THAT LEFT AN AIRCRAFT TANGLED IN LINE POWERLINES. NEWS TONIGHT ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THE FIVE OFFICERS INVOLVED IN AN INCIDENT THAT LEFT AMID PARALYZED AFTER THEIR POLICE FAN STOPPED A -- WILL FACE CHARGES. UP NEXT, AT THE BROKEN PROMISE MADE BY OUR GOVERNMENT OVER 200 YEARS AGO THAT FORCED OUR NATION'S LARGEST NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBE OFF OF THEIR LANDS AND ON TO THE INFAMOUS TRUE FIFTH TRAIL OF TEARS. WHAT LEADERS ARE NOW DOING TO FORCE. COM. HERE'S TO EVERYTHING AHEAD. >> TAKE A LOOK AT THE SCENE FROM A REMARKABLE RESCUE FOLLOWING A SMALL PLANE CRASH AND GATORS BIRD, MARYLAND. THE PLANE WAS TANGLED IN LIVE POWERLINES, AND THE PILOT AND PASSENGERS WERE TRAPPED INSIDE FOR HOURS, DANGLING 100 FEET ABOVE THE GROUND BEFORE EVENTUALLY BEING RESCUED. THE CRASH KNOCKED OUT POWER TO ABOUT 85,000 CUSTOMERS. AS CONGRESS RACES TO ROB A BUSINESS FOR THE YEAR, THE NATION'S LARGEST NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBE TONIGHT IS RAMPING UP CALLS ON THE U.S. GOVERNMENT TO KEEP A PROMISE THAT WAS MADE NEARLY 200 YEARS AGO. THE SAME TREATY WHICH FORCED THE CHEROKEE PEOPLE OFF OF THEIR LANDS AND ON TO THE INFAMOUS TRAIL OF TEARS WAS ALSO SUPPOSED TO GIVE THEM OFFICIAL REPRESENTATION IN WASHINGTON. THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED. THE TRUMP'S CHIEF AND IT WOULD BE DELICATE HAS SAID THAT THE TIME HAS COME FOR CONGRESS TO KEEP UP ITS END OF THE DEAL. DEVIN DWYER REPORTS AND JUST WHAT IS AT STAKE. >> IF YOU LIKE HIM IN A FULL CIRCLE MOMENT HERE. >> CHEROKEE NATION CHIEFS ARE DEFENDING A DEAL THAT THEIR ANCESTORS MADE WITH THE U.S. GOVERNMENT NEARLY TWO CENTURIES AGO. >> THIS IS MR. CHAIRMAN, A HISTORIC DAY FOR THE CHEROKEE NATION, AND FOUR. -- >> SIGNED A TREATY WITH THE JACKSON ADMINISTRATION. FORCED OFF OF THEIR INCEST RELIANCE AND ON TO THE INFAMOUS TRAIL OF TEARS WHEN. 16,000 MEMBERS OF THE TRIBE TRICKED TO OKLAHOMA, AND A QUARTER OF THEM, 4000 PEOPLE, DIED ALONG THE DAY. >> TO SEEK THE DELEGATE GET A SMALL MEASURE OF JUSTICE, TO THOSE THAT LOST THEIR LIVES. >> THE CHEROKEE DELEGATE TO CONGRESS WAS AN EXPLICIT PART OF THE TREATY, AN AGREEMENT STATING THAT THE CHEROKEE NATION SHALL BE ENTITLED TO A DELEGATE IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES. WHENEVER CONGRESS SHALL MAKE PROVISION FOR THE SAME. >> HOW CLEAR-CUT IS THE CHEROKEE RIGHT TO CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATE? >> I THINK COMPARED TO THE RIGHTS THAT OTHER TRIBES HAVE, THE CHEROKEE ONE IS PRETTY CLEAR. >> FOR GENERATIONS, THE PROMISED POSITION WAS OVERLOOKED AND UNFILLED, BUT IN 2019, THE TRIBE NAMED T -- AND HOUSE CAN BEGIN -- HE WOULD BE AMAZED AT THE TIME THAT WE ARE IN, OUT THAT HIS GRANDSON'S CHIEF, THEY CAN WALK INTO CONGRESS, AND CAN BE POISED TO GET THIS DONE. >> FOR THE CHEROKEE HAS RESOUNDING BIPARTISAN SUPPORT. A TOP REPUBLICAN IN THE HOUSE RULES COMMITTEE IS HIMSELF NATIVE AMERICAN. >> GLAD TO SEE TRIBES ADVOCATING FOR THEIR TREATIES WITH SUCH CONVICTION. >> AND PATIENT TRULY DOES MATTER. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE, THAT SHOULD BE A MASSIVE UNDERSTATEMENT. >> IF IT WERE UP TO ME, I WOULD SEEK DELICATE TEEHEE TOMORROW. >> WHAT IS STANDING IN THE WAY? >>, A SOCIETY, READY TO TAKE SERIOUS IN THE OBLIGATIONS THAT WE OWE TO TRIBES? >> ONE LEGAL STICKING POINT, THE PERCEPTION THAT CHEROKEE AMERICANS COULD EFFECTIVELY GET A SUPER VOTE IN CONGRESS. REPRESENTED BY THEIR DELEGATE AND THE CONGRESS PERSON FROM THEIR DISTRICT. >> IT IS UNCOMFORTABLE FOR NINE INDIANS TO THINK ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF CHEROKEE'S HAVING -- BUT IT'S ALSO UNCOMFORTABLE FOR THE CHEROKEE'S TO BE FORCED OUT OF GEORGIA. >> THERE'S ALSO THE QUESTION ABOUT WHETHER A NEW POSITION NEEDS A NEW VOTE, AND THE SIGNATURE BY THE PRESIDENT. >> WHO DECIDES? WHO'S THE LEGAL EMPIRE? >> THE COURTS. WITHOUT QUESTION, IT WOULD BE ASKED TO WEIGH IN ON THIS. >> KEEP IN MIND, 200 YEARS AGO, IT WAS RATIFIED BY THE SENATE, AND SIGNED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. IT'S ALREADY THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND. >> NO MORE IS IT JUST OKAY TO GIVE US A HEARING. >> TEEHEE SAYS AS CHARITY, DELEGATE -- MUCH LIKE THE ROLE OF THE DELEGATE FROM WASHINGTON D.C.. >> IN MANY, WAYS MY OFFICE PARALLELS THE OFFICES OF EVERY OTHER MEMBER OF CONGRESS. THAT'S THE FINAL VOTE ON THE HOUSE FLOOR THAT I DON'T HAVE. >> ELEANOR JONES IS ONE OF 69 VOTING DELEGATES IN CONGRESS REPRESENTING THE VIRGIN ISLAND, PROUD TO RICO, AMERICAN SAMOA, GUAM, AND THE NORTHERN ARIANA ISLANDS. THEY ARE ABLE TO SIT ON COMMITTEES INTRODUCING LEGISLATION, AND GIVING SPEECHES ON THE HOUSE FLOOR. GIVING THE VOICE TO THE PEOPLE IN THE PROCESS. >> THAT'S WHY WE'VE HAD NEARLY UNANIMOUS SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, FROM OTHER INDIAN TRIBES EXPRESSING THEIR SUPPORT FOR US. OTHER THAN THAT, IT'S OUR OPPORTUNITY TO EDUCATE OUR FELLOW COLLEAGUES ABOUT THE ISSUES THAT PERTAIN TO US. >> WHEN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE DOUG KIM TEEHEE -- >> CHIEF HOSKINS IS -- >> SEE ONE PARTY STANDING IN THE WAY. >> HE SEES PROGRESS IN CONGRESS AS UNPREDICTABLE AND PAINFULLY SLOW. >> LIKE A LOT OF LIP SERVICE. EVERYONE'S AFFORD, AND THEN NOTHING EVER HAPPENS. >> IF YOU'RE A TRIBAL LEADER AND YOU KNOW YOUR HISTORY, YOU UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF PATIENTS. I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES, AN INSTITUTION IN WHICH'S HAVE OFTEN NOT ONLY STRUCK OUT, BUT BEEN ON THE RECEIVING END OF A GREAT DEAL OF INJURY. >> IN A STATEMENT ABOUT HOW NANCY PELOSI SAID THAT THEY ARE ENTITLED TO REPRESENTATION, AND THAT THE DEMOCRATS WILL CONTINUE TO EXPLORE A PATH FORWARD. REPUBLICAN LEADER KEVIN MCCARTHY DID NOT RESPOND TO A REQUEST FOR COMMENT ABOUT SEETHING A DELEGATE IN THE NEW CONGRESS. NEITHER SIDE IS READY TO PLEDGE THAT IT WILL GET DONE. >> STORY BETTER PROMISE. IT'S BEEN 187 YEARS, AND IT'S STILL NOT FULFILLED. >> ABSOLUTELY. NOW IS THE TIME TO DO. AND I THINK THAT MOST AMERICANS IF THEY THINK ABOUT WHAT MAKES THE COUNTRY GREAT, BEING A COUNTRY THAT KEEPS ITS WORD IS ONE OF THOSE THOUGHTS. THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE COUNTRY TO KEEP ITS WORD. >> OUR THANKS TO DEVIN DWYER FOR THAT. STILL AHEAD HERE ON PRIME, JURY SELECTION BEGINS IN A HIGH PROFILE CASE OF TATIANA JEFFERSON, THE WOMAN THAT WAS KILLED INSIDE OF HER HOME BY A FORT WORTH POLICE OFFICER.

WHY WASN'T THE FIRST BOOK OF RACIST STORIES SUFFICIENT? >> WE HAD GREAT STORIES THAT WE WANTED TO PUT IN THE FIRST ONE AND WE DIDN'T, AND NOW WE'RE LIKE, LET'S DO IT. I STILL LIVE IN OMAHA, NEBRASK. TOO MANY WILD, HILARIOUS THINGS WERE HAPPENING TO ME, AND I WAS LIKE, WE NEED ANOTHER BOOK. WE WANTED TO ADD OUR FAMILY, AND PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY. >> LIKE YOUR FRIENDS. YOUR FRIEND, NBC. I WAS STRUCK BY THIS, BECAUSE YOU HAVE THIS PART IN THE BOOK WHERE YOU TALK ABOUT HOW YOUR GOOD FRIEND WHO IS WHITE, YOU SAY THAT YOU GUYS LOVE TO TRADE OPPOSITE STORIES. STORIES WHERE I AM SUFFERING SOME RACIST NONSENSE, AND SHE'S GETTING AWAY WITH EVERYTHING BUT MURDER. IS THERE A POINT WHERE YOU THINK THAT THIS IS NOT FUNNY, OR ARE YOU ABLE TO LAUGH AT THE DIFFERENCE? >> IT'S ALMOST ALWAYS FUNNY BECAUSE I AM NOT LEARNING ANYTHING NEW. THE WORLD THAT I HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN. NOW THEY'RE AWARDS TO IT. >> IT'S ALSO JUST A SPECIFICITY AND A LARGE THING THAT I ALREADY KNOW TO BE TRUE. THAT TO ME MAKES IT HILARIOUS. >> SOMETIMES WE'RE NOT TRYING TO SAY THAT THIS STORY IS FUNN, WE'RE TRYING TO SAY THAT WE SHOULD LOOK AT WHITE PRIVILEGE AND JUST LOOK AT RACISM IN ITS OWN. JUST LOOK AT IT. IT'S STILL HAPPENING. PARTS OF IT MIGHT BE FUNNY, BUT THIS DRAFT IS TRUE, AND IT'S HAPPENING EVERY DAY. >> ANOTHER PART THAT STRUCK ME, YOU TALK ABOUT A SCENARIO WHERE YOU ARE IN A STORE, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, THE SECURITY GUARDS START FOLLOWING YOU, AND NOTHING UNUSUAL THERE. YOU'RE EXPECTATION, BUT THEN THERE ARE SIX PEOPLE IN THE STORE, THIS IS SO RIDICULOUS IS FUNNY. IS THERE AN UNDERLYING SADNESS? >> YES. >> YES. SURE. I DON'T FEEL THAT WAY, BECAUSE THAT'S JUST WHAT IT IS. I'M HAVING TROUBLE THINKING OF A COMPARISON, BUT IT'S LIKE, THIS IS A HORRIBLE ONE. BUT WE ALL GET A PERIOD. IT IS HORRIBLE. >> IT'S JUST PART OF LIFE. IT'S JUST A RIGHT OF PASSAGE. >> THAT IN ITSELF IS SAID. [LAUGHTER] SEE HOW WE'RE LAUGHING, WE LEFT EVERYTHING. WE DO LEFT. >> AND LAUGH TO KEEP FROM CRYING IN A WAY. I'M CURIOUS, YOU LIVE IN A MAHATMA, BASKET, YOU LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY. HOW IS RACISM THIS BRAND, AND THE DIFFERENT MICROAGGRESSIONS OF RACISM FOR THE WEST COAST TO THE EAST COAST? >> HERE, IT'S GOOD. IT IS MORE IN YOUR FACE IN OMAHA. TO THE POINT WHERE WHEN IT DOES HAPPEN, I THINK THAT AMBER SAID THIGHS DOESN'T EVEN -- SHE'S LIKE, DID THAT JUST HAPPEN? SHE'S LIKE, YES. WHEN SHE COMES TO VISIT. AND WHEN I'M IN NEW YORK, I FEEL FREE, AND I JOKE WITH HER, I'M FREE. AND FREE. I'M PICKING THIS UP, NOBODY STARING. OF COURSE, WE'RE NOT SAYING THAT THERE IS NO RACISM IN NEW YORK, BUT IT'S A SHIFT. IT'S TOTALLY DIFFERENT WHEN I'M WALKING DOWN THE STREET, WHEN I'M WALKING INTO THE BUILDING, I DON'T FEEL THAT EVERYBODY IS LOOKING AT YOU. >> WHEN YOU'RE WRITING THESE BOOKS, WHO IS YOUR AUDIENCE? >> THE AUDIENCE IS ALWAYS A, OR THE PEOPLE MOST LIKE US. WHEN YOU ARE -- SOME OF THE BOOK IS, LOOK AT THIS STUFF, THE STUFF HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. CAN YOU BELIEVE? IT HERE'S A FUN WAY TO HANDLE IT. I THINK THAT AUDIENCE IS ALWAYS BLACK PEOPLE, BECAUSE BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR THAT THIS IS HAPPENED TO ME, AND WHEN IT HAPPENS TO YOU, HERE'S AN OPTION, YOU'RE NOT ALONE. >> AND I ALSO SAY THAT I HAVE HAD SO MANY WHITE PEOPLE COME UP TO ME AND SAY, I READ YOUR, BOOK I LOVE IT. OH MY GOD, I DO THIS. THAT'S THE ONE LITTLE PART THAT I LIKE. >> YOU DEDICATE YOUR BUT TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS, AND JOKINGLY TO ALL WHITE PEOPLE. BUT REALLY, IT SEEMS THAT WHITE PEOPLE ARE PICKING UP THE BUCK, RIGHT? >> THEY ARE. >> AND ARE BLACK PEOPLE PICKING IT UP BECAUSE THEY SAY THAT I WANT TO COMMISERATE ON THIS, BECAUSE I'M WONDERING IF PEOPLE ARE LIKE, I DON'T HAVE TO READ ABOUT, IT I BELIEVE IT EVERY DAY. I SEE, THIS THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE. >> THIS IS HAPPENING NOW, AND MAYBE I'M GOING TO SAY SOMETHING NOW. >> SOMETIMES WHY PEOPLE ARE LIKE, I READ THIS BOOK, AND FRANKLY, I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. >> IS IT CATHARTIC TO ACTUALLY WRITE ABOUT THE STORIES, TO WRITE OUT THE EXPERIENCES? >> YES. SOME OF THE STORIES ARE FUN TO TELL, BUT IT'S GREAT TO TELL. IT'S LIKE, I'M GETTING THESE OUT OF HERE, I'M GETTING THEM OFF OF MY CHEST. I'M PUTTING SOME PEOPLE, THEY NEED TO KNOW THAT THIS HAPPENE, AND THEY DID THAT. IT DOES FEEL GOOD TO TALK. >> YOU GET TO WRITE ABOUT RELY, AND MAKE IT FUNNY EVERY DAY. DO YOU FEEL THAT RACE IS SOMETHING THAT WE GET TO TALK ABOUT ENOUGH? AND POKE ENOUGH FUN WITH IT? >> I DON'T KNOW. I FEEL LIKE THE ONLY WAY THAT WE USED TO TALK ABOUT RACE, IN LET'S SAY THE 90S WAS THROUGH JOKES. THAT WAS IT. NOBODY WAS DISSECTING ANYTHING, BUT THEN NOW, I THINK THAT EVERYBODY IS DOING WHAT FEELS GOOD. US WRITING DOWN THESE STORIES IS CATHARTIC A LOT OF TIMES. WHEN PEOPLE ARE USING COMEDY, IT'S LIKE, WHAT LAUGHS CAN I GET FROM WHAT, BUT I THINK THAT PEOPLE ARE IN A PHASE WHEN WE ARE WORKING THROUGH OUR STUFF. >> FOR THE PERSON THAT HAS NOT HAD THE CHANCE TO GO THROUGH THE BOOK YET, GIVE US SOME LITTLE SNIPPETS OF SOME OF THESE STORIES. >> BACK WHEN I WAS LOOKING FOR A WEDDING DRESS FOR MY WEDDING, WE WENT TO THIS BOUTIQUE SHOP THAT WAS SUPER FANCY. THE FANCIEST PLACE THAT YOU COULD SHOP IN OMAHA. I WAS, LIKE LET ME SEE IF I CAN FIND A BEAUTIFUL DRESS FOR MY WEDDING. WE GO IN THERE, AND THE LADY IS LIKE, CAN I HELP YOU? DO YOU NEED -- WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR? >> I, GO WELL MY SISTER IS GETTING MARRIED. >> SHE SAID, WE DON'T HAVE A WEDDING DRESSES. >> NOW WE KNOW THAT SHE DOESN'T WANT US IN THE STORE. WE BOTH TAKE OUT OUR LITTLE BROWN HANDS, AND WE GET TO TOUCHING. WE TOUCH EVERY DRESS. >> AND SHE ALSO TELLS, AMORTIZE TO CONVINCE OR NOT TO GET MARRIED.
