This week we talk to Ian Kennedy, author of the new book On Account of Darkness: Shining a Light on Race and Sport. We also speak to Michael Lee of The Washington Post about the NBA’s reaction to the police murder of Tyre Nichols.

We have a Just Stand Up award to everyone lifting up their voice to protest the police murder of Tyre Nichols and a Just Sit Down award to Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass for her continuation of politics-as-usual in the City of Angels.
