S2. E22. Author Uncut Podcast - Sensitivity Reader Question: Is Calling Someone a "Karen," Racist? (Last Ep of Season)
S2. E22. Author Uncut Podcast - Sensitivity Reader Question: Is Calling Someone a "Karen," Racist? (AuthorUncut.com) THIS IS THE LAST EPISODE OF THE SEASON. SEASON 3 BEGINS IN OCTOBER. But first, if you enjoy my podcast, I'd be grateful if you spread the word by leaving a rating and a review.  Author Uncut can be found wherever you enjoy listening to your podcasts. Recently while doing a Sensitivity Read, an author asked me if calling someone a "Karen" is a slur or racist. I'll answer that question in this last episode of season 2. So what exactly is a "Karen?"  It's a term used to describe a woman, usually a white woman wielding her privilege by approaching a stranger,  usually a black man or woman, accusing them of one thing or another.  They may have an issue with their kids in a swimming pool, them sitting on a bench, walking through a neighborhood, sleeping in a student lounge, a child selling water on a stoop, a child mowing lawns for money, a family cookout bbq... the list goes on. A KAREN, is calling out someone's outrageous racist behavior.  It's another way of calling someone racist. So why are some calling it a slur or racist? Well, number 1, no one likes to be called a racist; especially if they are racists. Number 2, one woman on Twitter called it "class prejudice." That's a new one. Number 3, they feel that they are "victims" of the term and are cast in a bad light. I believe that is exactly what it is intended to do; cast that person and their outrageous behavior in a bad light and to publicly shame.

S2. E17. Author Uncut Podcast: Special Episode on George Floyd, Kaepernick, The Holocaust, Slavery & History of Police Brutality
S2. E17. Author Uncut Podcast: Special Episode on George Floyd, Kaepernick, The Holocaust, Slavery & History of Police Brutality (AuthorUncut.com) This episode was supposed to be another chapter from Counter Punch.  But, with what we have seen on television this week, I felt compelled to give an episode to George Floyd and his family. George Floyd was the man who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer (Derek Chauvin) by placing a knee on his neck (with his hands in his pockets) for over eight minutes while George pled for his life. Three other officers were also involved. This episode is more of a stream of consciousness on the subject of police violence and those lost. I have not edited this podcast and am allowing it to run as is.  Please note that I have included a clip from ABC's Nightline with Juju Chang reporting that includes graphic audio of the murder of George Floyd. However, that clip lasts less than one minute. In this episode I discuss: - Social injustice and police violence - The George Floyd murder - Philando Castile's murder - Sandra Bland's murder - Eric Garner's murder - Tamir Rice's murder (12 year old murdered by Cleveland police) - Colin Kaepernick and taking a knee - MLK peaceful protests - The Holocaust and Jewish experience - Slavery - NextDoor community - Archie Williams and the Innocence Project (man who was in prison for 36 years before he was exonerated by DNA evidence) and AGT (America's Got Talent) - Deflecting by using black-on-black crime to excuse police violence NOTE: I am so sorry I did not mention Breonna Taylor, an EMT First Responder killed/gunned down in her bed by the police looking for someone they already had in custody.  MENTIONS IN PODCAST: Anchor.fm Home Page: https://anchor.fm/patrice-williams-marks My Life During the OJ Simpson Trial book - https://www.patricewilliamsmarks.com/product/my-life-during-the-o-j-simpson-trial-a-new-book-releasing-april-20-2016/ ABC's Nighline with JuJu Chang Full Story - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmCyu_DaMYw The Innocence Project - https://www.innocenceproject.org Contact Me or Join My Newsletter list: https://authoruncut.com Want to suggest a future episode or send a comment?

But first, if you enjoy my podcast, I'd be grateful if you spread the word by leaving a rating and a review. Author Uncut can be found wherever you enjoy listening to your podcasts. One day I woke up with this story idea in my head that I just had to write. It was about a mother who would go to any lengths to protect her child and seek revenge for what had been done to her daughter Mo. I'm a fan of those types of books and films. Are you? If so, you've probably seen Law Abiding Citizen, Taken, Flight Plan and The Brave One. Here is what Counter Punch Is About: "Everyone is capable of murder. Everest was not the perfect mom, but what she was, was fierce. After her husband Anthony died at the hands of a drunk driver, it was up to her to raise their daughter Mo alone. Her love for Mo was both unmistakable and unshakable. But when Mo failed to return home from swim practice with not so much as a text, Everest knew something was wrong.

Of course I am referring to OJ Simpson and the trial of the century.  I've just released another book on the subject, that being the questionnaire given to potential jurors. But first, if you enjoy my podcast, I'd be grateful if you spread the word by leaving a rating and a review. Author Uncut can be found wherever you enjoy listening to your podcasts.

S2. E3. Why The French Are Interested in American Sensitivity Reading; Also Blackface Explained
S2. E3. Why The French Are Interested in American Sensitivity Reading; Also Blackface Explained (AuthorUncut.com) Today's podcast delves back into Sensitivity Reading and why it intrigues the French. I'll also explain why Blackface is offensive. Mid 2019 I was contacted by a really cool husband and wife team working in Los Angeles for France 24; an international television channel based in France. They were the LA Correspondence for the network and found me after reading a few of my articles online. They asked to interview me in person; which I did. It was an interesting experience as I had never been the focus of a news story before, despite working within the news business. They informed me that there is no such thing as Sensitivity Readers in France, and wanted to get to know more about me, the profession and how why/how I chose to become one ...

S2. E2. Author Uncut Podcast: Writing One of the Funniest Movies of All Time, "MY COUSIN VINNY"
S2. E2.  Author Uncut Podcast: Writing One of the Funniest Funniest Movies of All Time, "MY COUSIN VINNY" (AuthorUncut.com) Today's podcast highlights some of the funniest and most well-written moments from the classic comedy, My Cousin Vinny!   When I saw My Cousin Vinny for the first time, I wasn't a screenwriter, I wasn't even an author. I was just a movie goer who wanted a good laugh. I got that and more after watching My Cousin Vinny. That film, along with Star Wars and Clueless, are films I watch at least once a year, every year. After doing some screenwriting of my own, I came to appreciate the script and the film even more. The way Joe Peshie's character's stakes are gradually raised. Marissa Tomeii's character, which is integral to the plot, and not just window dressing; the huge laughs, the "true moments," all make for a near perfect script and film, in my opinion.

Is there a sort of romance to the writing process?  It depends on whether your definition of romance means walking on the beach at sunset, or sitting hunched over in front of a monitor for hours on end. Writing, completing and publishing a novel gives every writer a sense of accomplishment.  I know for myself, once I write that last chapter, I feel a sense of relief. I feel that again after the editing, and again once it's released into the world. But, no matter what type of novelist or writer you are, you will discover or experience these 5 truths about writing your novel.

S1. E22. Author Uncut Podcast Final Episode of Season: My Life During the OJ Simpson Trial and Why He's Still a Headline Maker (AuthorUncut.com) THIS IS MY FINAL EPISODE OF THE SEASON.  Season 2 Episode 1 will air Monday, February 10, 2020. (Note: There are graphic descriptions). The words "Not Guilty" set one man free, but somehow made all African-Americans, no matter their varied opinions, the enemy. "... the defendant, Orenthal James Simpson, not guilty of the crime of murder..." The  Trial of the Century had come to an end. The verdict hit the airwaves  and the eyes of the nation descended on the city that made superstars  out of attorneys. As an African-American recent college graduate  living and working in the city, that verdict had a profound effect on me  and the life I made for myself. The trial and the shocking verdict  served as the impetus for what would be months of turmoil and unrest. From the horrific Rodney King  assault, to the unsettling residuum following the O.J. Simpson verdict,  my life changed in profound ways.  ** Do you still feel the same way that you did when the verdict was announced?

S1. E7. A Classic Hollywood Film Still Shown on Screens and at Festivals Today is Considered Racist - Can You Guess Which One It Is? - AuthorUncut.com I  am a fan of Turner Classic Movies and old black and white films. I  prefer films from the 1940s. Especially films with classic gangsters  played by Cagney, gum shoes, mysteries, complex plots. One of my all  time favorite series-from this era is The Thin Man with Myrna Loy and  William Powell. If  you're not familiar with these two, they are comic gold together.  William plays a semi-drunk famous detective and Myrna plays his wife and  the one with the fortune.  They also have a dog called Asta.  Love  Asta. If  you love films where all the usual suspects are brought into a room  before the guilty one is fingered, then you'll love these films. But the classic film I'm talking about today is NOT The Thin Man. (Hint: Not liked by the Japanese). In my next episode I'll be discussing "must haves" for every screenwriter from the master, Stephen King.
