We're back out of podcast retirement but unfortunately it's not to talk about anything fight related.
There's a ton going on in the country right now in regards to the George Floyd murder, nationwide protests and the Black Lives Matter movement. In this episode we discuss the issues of police brutality, systemic racism and we give historical context to bring understanding of where the anger of these protests stem from. In addition to that we discuss our disdain for major corporations who are suddenly joining the BLM movement, we discuss what the Black Lives Matters movement actually stands for and most importantly we discuss ways that people can help join and become allies in the movement.
It's a pretty loaded episode the conversation needs to be had until true change takes place for the better. We hope you'll take some time out to listen.
