In today's episode, we discussed some of the issues pertaining to Black athletes. We take the time to discuss the optics (and provide some nuance) of the Sha'Carri Richardson situation and how fair or unfair it was that she was disqualified from participating in the Olympics. We also took the time to discuss the possibility of anti-Black sentiment coming from Black allies by citing the situation with Rachel Nichols and ESPN. Trysta Krick hosts Barstool Sports and gave us some insight into the goings on of these and other Black athletes. Our Way Black History Fact is about Fred Hampton of the Black Panther Party and the creator of the Rainbow Coalition.
