On this episode of the podcast, we take a look at a culture jam that occurred earlier this week, targeting the Washington football team and its racist team mascot. Jacqueline Keeler joins the show again to talk about how this culture jam came into being as well as the larger issue of using indigenous people as mascots, and the impact of living near uranium mines on the health of native communities.
We also have a Choice Words segment that examines the politics of Charles Barkley in the wake of the recent Alabama senatorial election. We also have a Just Stand Up award for the heads of the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB player associations and a Just Sit Down award to Rob Manfred, commissioner of Major League Baseball. All that and more!
Here’s Dave Zirin’s piece on Charles Barkley’s politics: Charles Barkley’s Politics Demand Criticism.
