Sevan Matossian (00:00):
70 miles south of you. Bam. We’re live.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (00:05):
Sevan Matossian (00:07):
Xaviaer DuRousseau (00:09):
Sevan Matossian (00:10):
Duso. I knew I was gonna screw it up.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (00:12):
It’s French. A lot of unnecessary letters in there.
Sevan Matossian (00:15):
Xavier du Oh, did I say right?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (00:22):
Sevan Matossian (00:23):
Duso. Xavier Duso. I’m, I’m horrible. With name is Duo Xavier. Duo Xavier. And, uh, I found you on Instagram and you’re, you’re friends with Matt Suza. Yes. What a small world.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (00:36):
I know, right? CFL’s been great. Love CrossFit Livermore.
Sevan Matossian (00:40):
Yeah. How did you find CrossFit?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (00:42):
Uh, two of my friends were already going there. Actually. A lot of my friends were going there. And during the pandemic, uh, 24 hour finish shut down. And I did not wanna try CrossFit at all. Uhhuh <affirmative>. Um, but it was the only option that was open at the time. Uh, so I ended up trying it and I loved it. So I stuck around
Sevan Matossian (00:59):
Sos Was, was su open illegally? Did he, was, was he like, given the finger to the man?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (01:05):
Uh, I’m not sure if it was legal or illegal. I was minding my business. I just knew that the gym was open, so I was there.
Sevan Matossian (01:09):
Yeah. And, uh, and you loved it right away?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (01:13):
Uh, it was brutal, but I loved it. I knew I was gonna stick around. I loved the, uh, just all the different aspects of it, like the competitiveness of it, that it was combining cardio and strength and all these different things that I wasn’t hitting for a while. Uh, cuz I was getting really stagnant at 24 Hour Fitness, but, uh, I got really motivated being at cfl.
Sevan Matossian (01:32):
And How old are you?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (01:33):
Sevan Matossian (01:36):
Two things, um, I wanna say to you, right Pat, thank you for what you’re doing. Uh, I said something kind of crazy yesterday. I thought it was crazy when it came outta my mouth. I was thinking that there’s the two most important times in the history of man and my history is not fantastic, that it was relevant, that, um, you have, uh, melanated skin is during slavery. And right now, I don’t think that I, I I, the, the only reason why, uh, race is important today is I almost feel like the world has to be saved. Not the world. This country has to be saved by people with melanated skin. Like what you do. I, I think one of the biggest, greatest things we can do to other human beings is to set them free, is to liberate them, is just so that around us, they don’t feel our judgment, that they’re free to be who they wanna be. And you’re doing that
Xaviaer DuRousseau (02:28):
Sevan Matossian (02:28):
You. Yeah. It, it, it, it is truly, um, it would almost be funny to see who’s more scared to, to speak, who’s more scared to speak within their communities of what they truly feel. And, uh, yeah. It’s, it’s, it’s, it’s a, uh, it’s a, it’s a really, uh, bizarre time. I wonder if your perspective is the same as mine. That
Xaviaer DuRousseau (02:55):
In a lot of ways, yeah. I definitely feel like we are fighting for freedom all over again. Because back then it was slavery physically, but now it’s like mentally so many people are still enslaved. You have this, this culture where you’re not allowed to think a certain way. You’re not allowed to move and operate in a certain way, otherwise you are condemned. You are essentially virtually lynched is the way they do it. As soon as you speak out with conservative values or anything that goes against the popular narrative, everyone slaughters you. They jump on you. And you are punished in this way where you think, okay, well I’m never gonna do that again because I now know what the people above me are going to do. And oftentimes those people above me are just my own community. It’s horrible.
Sevan Matossian (03:38):
Isn’t it weird that we’re both in the Bay Area?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (03:41):
It is. It’s a struggle out here. But I love that everyone’s always asking me when I’m gonna leave, and I’m too spoiled living here. The weather’s too good. Wineries and everything. I just can’t see myself leaving here anytime soon.
Sevan Matossian (03:53):
I know. I don’t think I can’t either. The, um, more than more than the, the politics. The harder part, I guess is the cost of living besides being around so many close-minded people.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (04:05):
Yeah. Especially, I’m from the Midwest originally, so I remember back home, I have so many friends with these beautiful homes, or their mortgages only $500, huge backyards. And all their neighbors are friendly. And here it’s like you pay $2,200 and you have a tiny little box and a one bedroom, and you still probably have to rent out something just to make it work. It’s, it’s crazy. So many people like working professionals, there’s like six people in one house just each running a bedroom. Like, it’s insane. Like how do you raise a family in that kind of culture?
Sevan Matossian (04:40):
Well, unfortunately, you send ’em to school and they get fucked up.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (04:44):
Sevan Matossian (04:45):
If, if you have kids and you, and for some reason you can’t homeschool ’em, were you weren’t homeschooled.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (04:49):
I was not public school.
Sevan Matossian (04:52):
And, um, brought up in a home, uh, home that voted, uh, Hillary Obama, Biden, the, the whole
Xaviaer DuRousseau (04:59):
Very, very Democrat Me too. Very
Sevan Matossian (05:02):
Liberal. Me too. And, and, uh, do-gooders. Right? You always viewed your family as do-gooders. Good people saved the trees, look out for the poor people. That was the, was that the
Xaviaer DuRousseau (05:13):
No, it was a bit of a poverty mindset. Sometimes it was, uh, uh, every man for themself type of mentality a lot of the times.
Sevan Matossian (05:20):
What do you mean? When I think of the Democrat, I, I was raised that the Democrats were the good people who cared about the poor people. And the Republicans were the bad people who didn’t care about the environment and only cared about the rich.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (05:31):
Well, a lot of times the poor people only care about the poor people. And even when they start to be a little less poor, they still only care about themselves. And when I say the poor people and the poor people, I mean that particular person. Um, a lot of times people don’t look out for themselves the way that they want to. They just blame everything on the big bad rich, white, old Republicans. Yes. Instead of ever looking at the damage that’s being done within their own community, like the amount of times you’ll see soup kitchens getting robbed. It’s like it’s their own, they’re their own downfall more often than not. So a lot of times I just, I would just see selfishness more than anything, especially when I would spend time in Chicago, people just being very selfish, poor people robbing other poor people.
Sevan Matossian (06:12):
I, in, in the, in the last 20 years of my life, I had the opportunity to be around a lot of wealthy people. And what I noticed is when times get rough or when taxes go high, they don’t suffer. Who suffers as everyone in their circle. Meaning you tax someone who’s rich and Nancy Pelosi and Gavin Newsom get the money and it filters through them and then maybe turns into some sort of welfare check. But when rich people get taxed, basically they, they fire the gardener. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, they, they, they take their car less often to get it washed. They, it basically, it har it hurts all the entire fucking working class. And I know Reagan used to call that trickle down economics, and I know so many people don’t believe in it, but I, I witnessed it firsthand.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (07:02):
Yeah. I definitely believe in trickle down economics. And, you know, there was an analogy someone gave me once, and you’ll have poor people sitting on the side of the street and someone dries past driving, let’s say a Lamborghini or some expensive car, and you’ll see them pointing at that person saying how terrible of a person they are. All the mouse they could have fed instead of buying that car, Uhhuh. But what they’re not thinking about is that was a commission check for the person that sold the car. That was a check for the people who built the car. That was a check for the people who cleaned and detailed the car. And for the people who are gonna maintain the car later, all of those people are now being fed because he bought that vehicle. So if you didn’t buy that vehicle, then what do you say to those people who were possibly affected by him buying it?
Sevan Matossian (07:43):
You nailed something right on the button. There is, it’s a misnomer. There is no such thing as that was a waste of money that the only, there’s only, there’s only one way you can waste money and that’s to burn it. Money never. It, it, it never goes away. It keeps into circulation. So when you drop a hundred dollars into a video game machine that my, I see my kids, you know, drop $20 into the ninja turtle machine, I might think it’s a waste for me, but it’s not a waste. There’s 20, there’s 20 people who that arcade employees who just got that money. Yeah. It, it’s, it is absolutely insane. I had this moment, um, I, I was, uh, I was making a documentary about a guy and he went and he went to this seminar in New York City. This is in probably 2000. And it was a seminar where a guy talks to you about three hours on how to get rich, and then if you like it, you buy his 10, 10 DVDs.
Right? And then you get rich. And I was listening to it and the whole time, like, this is a scam. This is a scam. And I’m not a religious guy at all, but there’s one thing that this guy said that just stuck with me as I’m sitting there with my friend who’s, who’s taking the class. He said, if you resent everything you resent, God gives you everything you want. And so if you resent rich people, he’ll make sure, or she’ll make sure that you’re never rich because he doesn’t wanna give you something you don’t want. And that fucking hit me like a lightning bolt. And I told myself at that point, every, I, I, I built a mantra into my life that I use to this day, every time I see a penny or nickel or any money on the ground, even if it’s like there’s like 10 people sitting around and someone might be embarrassed, I’ll go over and pick up the the penny and I’ll say to myself, and actually I’ll say it out loud, I am a money magnet. And I swear to you, Xavier, from that moment on my life has been on an upward trajectory financially.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (09:29):
Sevan Matossian (09:29):
Just changed my mindset. Mm-hmm.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (09:31):
Sevan Matossian (09:32):
And I don’t resent any, when I see a Ferrari go by, I don’t. And I see a guy in it, I’m like, man, congratula, I think in my head I congratulate him. I sent him, I sent him some vibes. That’s awesome. And I faked it till I made it. And to this day, now I believe it. I’m, I wanna be happy for other people’s successes, not resentful.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (09:50):
I agree a hundred percent. I’ve never thought about just picking up every single penny and saying I’m a money magnet. I have to think about that a little more, but I don’t, I totally get the settlement and uh, or the sediment. And, um, I see that, I’ve always felt like the way that you manifest things is very powerful. The mentality that you have and what you’re going for very much has an impact on what you’re going to achieve. Like my entire life, like I never wanted the lifestyle that I was surrounded by. So I always had this mentality of, until it’s my time, I will clap for you. I have no problem cheering for you, celebrating you, your accomplishments, what you’re doing and what you’re achieving. Because I know when it’s my time that I’m going to have earned it and it’s going to be something that I didn’t just get out of the fluke. It’s gonna be something I worked for and that I’ve been saying is coming my way this entire time,
Sevan Matossian (10:42):
This whole cohort of people who I I I I see as damaging society under the guise of helping society. Right. They think that they’re, they’re, they’re protesting with blm. They’re saying everyone should get the vaccine to help society. They’re saying that, um, you, you, there’s things you can and can’t say. You can’t say that a a black man is articulate because that insinuates something you can’t, um, uh, there’s all sorts of rules. You can’t say that that’s an oriental rug. I remember when that happened, right? I was a little kid and I said, oh, we have an oriental rug. And someone’s like, you can’t say that anymore. That’s offensive. And this the, the whole PC thing that was happening, why do, is there, is there hope since, since you and I flipped the script, since you and I finally realized and understood the mechanism of how the brain works, that being offended about anything is our personal responsibility and only leads to misery. Do you think that there’s hope for everybody?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (11:43):
Everybody is a stretch, but I’d say the <laugh>, the majority of people, I I’d say it’s happening, it’s starting to get there because activism more often than not hurts the people that you are advocating for. We’re seeing so many people being erased out of their own narrative or, or out of their own spaces just from activists. You see it in women’s sports where people are trying so hard to fight for the justice of women. But now they’re saying that these men who are wearing a party city wig can identify as women kicking women out of their own spaces. And we’re supposed to applaud that.
Sevan Matossian (12:17):
Yeah, explain that to me again. That was fascinating the way you said that their, their activism is getting them out of their own spaces. I knew right away that wilt culture basically will, there’s no loyalty that they’ll, that they’ll cannibalize their own. There’s no, I, uh, one minute. Uh, uh, one minute. The nurses are heroes. The next minute they’re being canalized. One minute Kyrie is the oppressed black man. The next minute he’s the fucking bad guy. Like there’s no, there’s no fucking boundaries. Anyone who steps off that line. One minute you’re lg, one minute you’re, you’re marching the gay pride parade and now you’re having to defend transgender people, um, to who are grooming kids. Uh, and I apologize for conflating those two things. I know they’re two separate things. I I apologize to transgender people, which I don’t do very often, but there’s, uh, they’ll they’ll cannibalize their own. Yeah. There is no end to that, to that, to their mission there. It’s just a to walk a narrower and narrower and narrower line until we turn into fucking North Korea.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (13:16):
Yeah. To the point where they’re just, they’re being so woke that they’re putting themselves into corners. Like if you just saw the shooting that happened in Colorado Springs, that entire story seems to, has have vanished from mainstream news ever since the shooter came out as non-binary. That’s crazy to me because now you have a clearly mentally ill individual who identifies as non-binary. So you have to respect their they them pronouns. Yes. And on top of that, you can’t even say anymore that this is a deranged killer. Like we would normally say that they were, because you can’t call a, a non-binary person mentally ill. Cuz then that’s a stigma in itself. So now they have literally put themselves in a corner where they have to respect the pronouns and the just psychological disorder that a serial killer has or a mass murderer has. That’s insane,
Sevan Matossian (14:10):
Isn’t it? That was really funny how that, um, all of a sudden he wasn’t a real non-binary. That was fucking crazy.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (14:21):
Again, just complete hypocrisy. I thought we weren’t supposed to question it at all. I thought if someone said that on a whim they identify as a woman or as a frog even, we’re supposed to just suddenly respect it. They are, it’s this, this like a horseshoe effect. It’s the further we get from one point, we just get closer to the other and it ends up being the same just idiotic mentality, just from two different perspectives. And we keep seeing it over and over.
Sevan Matossian (14:49):
Um, can you, you tell me, are, are both, are you were born in the Midwest? Where were you born?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (14:54):
Uh, I was born in Chicago, but I grew up in central Illinois.
Sevan Matossian (14:58):
And uh, and and your parents, are they still together?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (15:02):
Sevan Matossian (15:03):
Yeah. Congratulations. And, um, and, and what did your parents do for a living?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (15:09):
Uh, my dad ended up having a bunch of different jobs. Now he, he’s been a truck driver for the last decade, I believe. But, um, the economy hit him hard, so he ended up having to bounce around from jobs a lot of the time. My mom worked, um, at a material handling factory pretty much my entire childhood.
Sevan Matossian (15:27):
And do you have siblings?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (15:28):
Yes, I’m the youngest of five, but I grew up with two, grew up with my mom’s, two kids, my dad’s two kids from his previous relationship. Grew up in California.
Sevan Matossian (15:38):
And and how old were you when you moved to California?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (15:41):
Uh, I was 19.
Sevan Matossian (15:43):
Oh shit. Wow. Yeah, it was
Xaviaer DuRousseau (15:48):
Sevan Matossian (15:48):
Yeah. And, and, and, and that, and did you and your family moved out with you?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (15:53):
No, I moved out here on my own.
Sevan Matossian (15:55):
Oh wow. Did you play sports as a kid?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (15:58):
Yeah, I did track and football for one year.
Sevan Matossian (16:02):
And during this time, um, being raised, did you view yourself as a democrat? As a kid? Like if you would do mock elections in the high school, you would check the box, you know, Hillary or Obama?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (16:12):
I identified as a socialist. I had no idea what socialism really was, but I thought I was a democratic socialist. I thought Bernie Sanders was gonna be the savior of all people, especially when I was in college. Cuz then the second he said that college was going to be free for everyone. I was jumping all over that. Um, but I had no idea what I was actually talking about, but I was very loudly a democrat with no substance.
Sevan Matossian (16:35):
A a another, another misconception. Um, right, there’s there’s nothing that’s free.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (16:41):
Sevan Matossian (16:42):
A absolutely nothing that’s free. And yet they use that word free. They use all so many times words are being used or things are being said. Like during c they kept saying stuff like, um, a minority minorities are dispo disproportionately affected. I wish they just would’ve every time they said that. Instead they said something that was useful. Like, Hey, by the way, uh, people with black skin, uh, because your, your skin is more biologically, um, prepared better to live at the equator, you don’t absorb as much vitamin D, so please take vitamin D supplementation. What if they would’ve said that every single time instead of play the victim? It’s so easy it it. Right. Isn’t that just like, just a no brainer?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (17:28):
Well that’s the exact opposite of what they want. They want black people and people of color to have this victim mentality so that we continue to be dependent on these systems that they’ve established for us. Because if you said something that was actually logical, then that would make sense. And there’s a solution attached to that. The reason that we have so many of these just senseless movements is because it’s so much easier to say that we’re fighting for a problem that doesn’t exist. Because then you don’t have to do any actual work. Like they continue to say that we need to fight this police brutality epidemic when that’s not an epidemic that’s barely happening. Do you know how rare it is for an unarmed black person to be shot by a police officer? And more often than not, it is very much warranted. I used to think that it was happening hundreds of times a year in that it was just we were being hunted down as black people by the police. And that’s not the case. It happens roughly a dozen times. And again, those people were more often than not still a violent threat, but that does not align with the narrative that they want. They want us to be in a constant state of fear because fear is the achilles heel of black America.
Sevan Matossian (18:36):
It it’s along that line too. When I, when I first started getting red pill, when I first started waking up, I used to think, well there’s no, there’s no such thing as systemic racism. And I started going down that rabbit hole. And then more and more, and especially after listening to you, I realized there is systemic racism. The systemic racism is coming from the people is being pushed by the people who say that they wanna get rid of it. Just by saying those things, by the systemic racism is trying to make people feel like the victim. You get what I’m saying? Yeah. So by, by saying that the systemic racism is the fact that you’re spreading the message that people are disproportionately affected by certain things instead of giving them the solution. Because what you’re doing is like what you said, you’re pushing them into a corner and it’s the victim corner and there’s no out
Xaviaer DuRousseau (19:27):
Exactly. And then you’re condemned If you try to get out of the victim corner, it’s like, why am I the bad guy when I look at black person, I say, you are capable of doing whatever it is that you want to do and there’s no one or nothing that can hold you back. I’m problematic when I say that I’m supposed to tell someone that you are less capable and that’s what gets celebrated. It’s like at some point you just get to where you no longer care when they boo you because you know what it is that they cheer for. They cheer for victim mentality. They cheer for us to be in this box. And when everyone wants to bring up white supremacy, white supremacy is not even close to being one of the biggest issues affecting the black community. We have so many issues within the community and culture that we need to fix, but we’re told to focus on white supremacy because again, that’s just a fear tactic that they use so easily. And if anything is white supremacy today, it’s the mentality that we are told that we were supposed to be viewing ourselves as a victim. New age white supremacy is convincing black people that they are less capable and swearing up and down, that they’re oppressed. I wish people understood how narcissistic that is to tell me as a black person that I’m oppressed when I say that I’m not. And it’s factual that I’m not.
Sevan Matossian (20:35):
It it, it’s fascinating. I’m sure you’ve seen those videos where the guy walks onto campus at uc, Berkeley and and and he basically paints these people into a corner where they think that for some reason because of the color of your skin, you have trouble getting a driver’s license
Xaviaer DuRousseau (20:50):
Sevan Matossian (20:51):
And, and they don’t realize how racist they’re being. It’s fascinating. Do you think it’s that they don’t understand the basic mechanism of the how the human brain works? Why can’t they see it? It’s like, for me and you, it’s like right in front of you. It’s like, dude, you can’t, you just, you just judge someone by the color of their skin.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (21:12):
You know, some people are just blind to logic. Sometimes it’s like cognitive sance, but a lot of the times it’s, people don’t look at it from a common sense perspective. Like I feel like you’re trying to add a lot of logic and common sense is something that doesn’t have any foundation. These people were told by social media that black people are oppressed and that we need to save all people of color. And that white people need to feel guilty for what their great, great great great grandparents did. And because of that, they’ve taken it and ran with it because they also are kind of trapped. I almost feel bad for certain liberals because they are trapped in the same system
Sevan Matossian (21:48):
Because I feel bad for them too. Be honest with you. I feel bad for them too. I’m like, holy shit, your life looks like it’s miserable
Xaviaer DuRousseau (21:55):
And it’s always another layer added. It’s like, it’s not even enough to be not racist anymore. You have to be anti-racist. They just continue to push this envelope of what it is that is expected from liberals and from all of us really from all races, how it is that we’re supposed to believe. And it all really ties into votes. I mean, the rabbit trail of it is the mentality is supposed to tie people down to a certain mentality or to a certain ideology to where we have to fight this victimhood and we have to save people of color. And the only people wanting to do that cuz they’re pushing the fraudulent narrative is the left.
Sevan Matossian (22:32):
Yeah. It’s it’s fascinating. When, when, when you, so you come here when you’re 19 and and what were, was this your first time in California?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (22:40):
Um, technically yes.
Sevan Matossian (22:42):
And what were your, and you, did you land where you’re at now? Is that where you landed?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (22:47):
Uh, I was in Brentwood briefly and for like a couple months and then I moved to the Tri-Valley area. So I’ve been here the whole time.
Sevan Matossian (22:54):
And how did you choose Brentwood?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (22:57):
Um, I was actually there just like visiting some family friends essentially and doing some networking. Then I ended up securing opportunities out here. Uh, so I ended up just moving here abruptly.
Sevan Matossian (23:07):
Uh, for those of you who don’t know, I, I don’t know how it is now, but when I was a kid, Brentwood was the, was the country. It was like, there was like farming out there and livestock. It’s basically, I’d say 70 miles inland from San Francisco to east.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (23:21):
Yeah. That’s why I had to get outta there as soon as possible. I was like, I didn’t leave the Illinois cornfield to be in a California cornfield.
Sevan Matossian (23:27):
Right, right. And, and then you moved out here and is that, is that scary at 19 to do that?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (23:34):
Oh, terrifying. It was definitely terrifying. Um, it was premature looking back on it, but I mean, it worked out for me. Luckily. I just was really bold and I guess believed in my vision enough to just go for it. So I did. Plus at the time I was very liberal, wanted to be around the liberal area, wanted to be around just the culture of the Bay Area, just to end up accidentally red pilling myself and becoming a conservative.
Sevan Matossian (23:59):
You say that and, and we’ll get to that part of the story, but I found this video and this video is I think you in high school and the and <laugh> <laugh> isn’t the internet. Great. And this video shows some really, uh, the, the audio’s really bad on this guys, but I want you to hear this <laugh>. He already, he already knew in high school he, he already, he already knew in high school. Listen to, listen, what is this by the way? This is just at your, at your high school.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (24:30):
I forgot this video except or existed, but yeah, this is, I think my junior or I think this is my senior year.
Sevan Matossian (24:39):
Uh, you’re already saying some really smart shit here. Listen, if you guys can here,
Speaker 3 (24:45):
Uh, do you feel that all people are treated equally in the town? Ofac,
Sevan Matossian (24:49):
Do you, the the question says, do you think all people are treated equally in the town? And this is some, this is, uh, the town you lived in outside of Chicago?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (24:56):
Sevan Matossian (24:57):
Okay, here we go.
Speaker 3 (25:00):
No whys that? I feel like people are just looked out upon and there’s too much judgment. And once again, it’s not just Pak, it’s just a nationwide thing that needs to be solved and with people trying to solve it, it’s being overcorrected the way people
Sevan Matossian (25:16):
There it is. He, you say, oh wow. He, he asks, do you think all people are being treated equally? And you said, no, it’s not just here. It’s all over the country. And then he goes on to say, but the problem is, is people are over correcting now. This is, this isn’t even 2020 yet, and you already know people are over fucking correcting. Here we go, here we go.
Speaker 3 (25:37):
Are trying to make bigger issues outta things that shouldn’t be in
Sevan Matossian (25:40):
The next. People are trying to make bigger issues out of things that shouldn’t be
Speaker 3 (25:44):
Making more people have tension towards the issue and
Sevan Matossian (25:49):
It’s just ma making people have tension towards the issue,
Speaker 3 (25:52):
Becoming very uncomfortable.
Sevan Matossian (25:54):
So, and making things uncomfortable. It it was like, it was like you already knew you. You already knew. You already knew in 2019. Wow. You’re like, Hey, we have problems. But there’s been a, there’s been, and that is what’s happened. There’s been a, the, the course correction has been so fucking massive that, um, that there’s a demand to see racism everywhere. I mean, I’m, I’m sure you’ve seen it, the most ridiculous one now is that climate change is anything that they can attribute towards racism and climate change is like the new frontier for racism. It, and I, I, to be honest with you, the other ones I can kind of like make up how they’re seeing it. This one I can’t even understand what they’re saying.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (26:31):
Yeah, well first thing I have to say, that video was from like 2015 actually. That
Sevan Matossian (26:37):
Was okay. Okay.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (26:38):
I’m impressed. I didn’t know I was a little more unwoke back then that I give myself credit for. I’d say probably the year after that, once I got to college is when I really, really started getting woke. But, um, I’m proud of myself, proud of senior year me, uh, that I wasn’t too indoctrinated yet. But yes, when it comes to climate change, I really just think it’s a money laundering thing. Cuz again, it’s one of those things where they’re putting so much money and attention towards something that doesn’t require it because there’s no actual solution in mind. So they’re giving these billions and billions of dollars to plant trees. It’s like, yes, planting trees is a great thing, but we don’t need this much money towards climate change. And the way that their narrative shifts every few years on that is wild. Cuz it was global warming then it was global cooling. Whatever happened with the ozone layer, the ozone layer literally just magically fixed itself.
Sevan Matossian (27:28):
What happened to overpopulation? Now we’re in a population decline.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (27:31):
Yeah. I’m hearing all these things about a population collapse. Like they can’t pick a struggle because there is no actual end goal there. It’s just money going towards this system that continues to just circulate within itself.
Sevan Matossian (27:45):
By the way, I saw, I saw yesterday I saw a, uh, study 30 scientists have done that. There is, uh, like in the last 10 years, there’s been a 14% increase in, um, Fage on the planet, which is equivalent to the size of the United States. And they’re saying it’s because of all the CO2 in the air that plants are just flourishing, that they’re growing at some like accelerated speed. Go. Wow. Go figure.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (28:10):
I didn’t know that.
Sevan Matossian (28:11):
Go figure. I’ll send you the, I’ll send you the, uh, I’ll send you the article. It’s fascinating. It’s really cool. Um, so, okay, so you come here and when I used to see the Black Lives, I lived in Berkeley, California, and when I first started seeing in Black Lives Matter signs, I um, a hundred percent just assumed that it was the black community speaking to itself. I had no, I thought, you know what I mean? I thought, okay, black Lives Matter. This is, whenever I would see those signs in a home, I would think, oh, that’s probably a black family lives there. And they’re telling other black families there. Because in my mind, I’d, I had the narrative already. I knew about the crazy, um, statistics. You know, 51% of all murders in the United States were committed by 6% of the population if you organized them by sex and color of their skin.
And like I was acutely aware of that. And I lived in, and I, and I lived in the Bay Area, so I saw, and I walked a lot, so I saw all sorts of crazy shit in Oakland and in Berkeley and in Richmond. Um, but that’s not what Black Lives Matter ended up being. Black Lives Matter ended up being just this huge massive movement. I, I, I don’t know, I don’t know what it was. But you, you said something in several videos where not from your firsthand experience, but from the message that black people were oppressed. So you lived it, you embraced the message rather than what you were experiencing. And we saw the whole world do that with Covid, right?
Xaviaer DuRousseau (29:39):
That is true. Um,
Sevan Matossian (29:41):
And clearly white people have not experienced, the vast majority of white people have not experienced, um, being oppressed as a black man. But yet they all jumped on the bandwagon. They believe the narrative without any personal data points themselves.
Xaviaer DuRousseau (29:56):
I would say what took me a long time to differentiate is there is a.
