The NFL Anthem Mess: Putting Out a Fire With Kerosene

This week we have Bijan Bayne, social commentator and author of the book Elgin Baylor: The Man Who Changed Basketball to talk the NFL, the new anthem polcy, and the unholy mess created by unaccountable billionaires. 

We have ‘Choice Words’ about the White House’s decision to pardon Jack Johnson. We also have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards, to Sterling Brown and a recurring figure, Kaepernick watch and more!
