Re: Making political statements in sports

Since you missed it the first time, in my post here , this is my suggestion, as an answer to your question. Athletes are public figures. News stations want people to watch. Sounds like a win-win: They could, but I doubt it would have the same effect. It would get covered for a few days before being...

Re: Making political statements in sports

Philip, The issue is institutional racism (IR) in America, currently. We'd all agree that there was institutional racism in America. Segregation/Jim Crow laws are an example of institutional racism. When people cry "Institutional Racism", I've yet to see anyone give any examples that exis...
