How Does Whiteness Operate in Sports?

How Does Whiteness Operate in Sports?

Former volleyball coach Jen Fry joins the show to talk about how race and sport interact.


In this episode, we talk to Jen Fry, to hear about how whiteness operates in sports. Jen Fry facilitates workshops in the sports world on issues of anti-racism and inclusion.

We also have Choice Words about why Minneapolis cancelled their games following the police killing of Daunte Wright. In addition, we also have “Just Stand Up” and “Just Sit Down” awards to Britni De La Cretaz and Layshia Clarendon for a terrific feature in SI, and Brett Favre, who continues to say stupid things. All this and more on this week’s show!
