Racism and the College Athlete Edge of Sports

    • Sports

This week we talked to Derek Silva, co-author of an article in the Guardian about racial epithets, college athletics, and what occurred at BYU when Duke volleyball player Rachel Richardson faced racist taunts and was subsequently told by BYU officials that she did not in fact hear them.
We also have ‘Choice Words’ about the way that the media is covering Aaron Judge’s home run chase and the erasure of Barry Lamar Bonds. We also have a ‘Just Stand Up’ and 'Just Sit Down’ award to Cherelle Griner for courageously coming forward and talking about the plight of Brittney Griner in Russia and Draymond Green for an act of inexcusable violence. All this and more on this week’s show!
