  • Exploring the Role of a District Attorney with William Wagstaff

    In this captivating clip of Market Mondays, hosts Ian Dunlap and Troy Millings sit down with William Wagstaff, a civil rights attorney striving to become the district attorney. By highlighting his deep personal experiences and robust understanding of the justice system, Wagstaff provides a vivid picture of what it means to hold this critical position, particularly within black and brown communities.


    *Time Stamps:*


    *[00:00]* - Introduction: Transformative Insights from Mount Vernon's Own

    Troy Millings introduces William Wagstaff, speaking to his impressive journey from being formerly justice-involved to an NBA civil rights attorney and now running for district attorney. Wagstaff's unique perspective offers valuable insights for viewers from all walks of life.


    *[00:19]* - What Does a District Attorney Do?

    Wagstaff demystifies the role of a district attorney, shedding light on the multitude of responsibilities such as deciding who gets charged with crimes, recommending sentences during plea deals, and advocating for or against bail. His description underscores the crucial influence a district attorney possesses in shaping fair and just legal outcomes.


    *[02:30]* - Addressing Systemic Issues in the Justice System

    Through a compelling argument, Wagstaff explains how historically, district attorneys have often overlooked the socio-economic drivers of crime. He posits that addressing these fundamental issues—such as lack of educational and financial opportunities, broken homes, and gang involvement—can lead to a more equitable justice system without compromising safety.


    *[04:13]* - The Need for Comprehensive Social Services

    William emphasizes the necessity of viewing social issues like drug addiction, mental health, and the opioid crisis as public safety concerns. He argues that re-investing in underserved communities could reduce crime rates and recidivism, offering a long-term solution to many systemic problems.


    *[05:16]* - Political and Financial Incentives for Incarceration: A Call for Advocacy

    Wagstaff discusses the financial incentives that fuel mass incarceration and urges district attorneys to advocate for best practices. He stresses the importance of the electorate demanding intentional investment in youth programs, mental health services, and drug rehabilitation to create a safe and just society.


    *[07:44]* - Holding Police Accountable

    Highlighting his role as a special prosecutor for police discipline in Mount Vernon, Wagstaff advocates for independent oversight to ensure accountability within police forces. He argues for the establishment of an independently elected Inspector General to monitor police misconduct, thereby removing internal biases and relational interference.


    *[10:16]* - Professional Licensing for Police Officers

    In a striking proposition, Wagstaff suggests that police officers should be required to hold a professional license, similar to real estate agents or medical professionals. This licensing would include individual malpractice insurance, adding a financial incentive for officers to maintain good conduct, thus ensuring accountability and ethical behavior in law enforcement.


    Join us for this enlightening episode of Market Mondays as William Wagstaff outlines a comprehensive vision for transforming the justice system. From prosecutorial discretion to police accountability, Wagstaff’s insights make a compelling case for systemic change and community-focused justice.

  • John W. Rogers Jr. Went From Getting Stocks As A Childhood Gift To Starting First Black Mutual Fund

    Welcome to another enlightening clip of Market Mondays! Today, our hosts Ian Dunlap, Troy Millings, Rashad Bilal, and our prestigious guest, John W. Rogers Jr., delve into the riveting backstory of how Ariel Investments was born and soared to a $15 billion enterprise under his leadership.


    John shares his unique upbringing, influenced heavily by his family's deep-rooted engagement in entrepreneurship and social justice. From receiving stocks as birthday presents instead of toys at the age of twelve to inheriting a profound mission of building black wealth, John's journey is nothing short of inspirational. His father, a courageous Tuskegee airman and his mother, the first African American woman to graduate from the University of Chicago Law School in 1946, instilled in him the virtues of resilience and foresight.

He recounts crucial lessons learned from mentors like the first African American stockbroker on LaSalle Street, Stacy Adams, shaping his strategies and perspective on investments. Hear about his educational journey at Princeton, where he adopted a contrarian investment philosophy influenced by the classic "A Random Walk Down Wall Street" by Burt Malkiel.


    John W. Rogers Jr. does not just talk about stocks and markets; he shares powerful narratives about overcoming adversities, citing historical market crashes and opportunities that arise in times of maximum pessimism. He highlights how Ariel Investments embraces a long-term, value-oriented investment approach, drawing parallels between historical resilience through tumultuous times and steady economic growth.


    Our hosts touch upon Ariel's favorite stock picks, including Madison Square Garden Entertainment and the significance of such investments in today's economic landscape. John W. Rogers Jr. also elaborates on what it means to be a contrarian investor, emphasizing independent thinking and the courage to invest during times of fear and uncertainty.


    Lastly, John reflects on the technological and entrepreneurial revolutions he's witnessed since founding Ariel in 1983, inspired by Chicago’s business legends like John Johnson of Ebony and Jet magazines and George Johnson of Afro Sheen.
