NFL, if you kneel for anything, you stand for nothing: Ron Hart

The NFL has somehow opened its season and at the same time tied itself to the muddled message of professional malcontent Colin Kaepernick and the BLM movement. We are not sure what they are mad about or asking for, and we are tired of being preached to by hypocrites who do not understand their own sermon. Thus, many of us tuned out. TV ratings for the NFL opener were down 16 percent. The few fans in Kansas City booed the maudlin message that players are good while white fans are racist and in ne...

End racism? Messaging from NFL, booing from fans shows the challenge

The NFL — heck, pro sports as a whole … heck, our country as a whole — is in a much different spot in the conversation on social justice and racial inequality than even six months ago. National polling suggested support for Black Lives Matter doubled this summer from where it was in 2016 — around the time that Colin Kaepernick knelt before the national anthem during an NFL preseason game. As the idea that racism is a major problem has become the majority opinion in the United States, athletes ha...

Nation watching LA’s DA race: Battle pits progressive Democrats against more establishment wing

For a few weeks in March, it looked like Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey might barely hold onto her job without the need for a runoff. The early vote count March 3 revealed Lacey had received more than 50% of the ballots cast, enough to put away her two challengers, who had split their opposition. But thousands of ballots remained to be counted and, in the final tabulation, Lacey dropped to just under 49%, not enough for an outright victory and setting up what has become a bitt...

Athletes’ Racial Justice Protest Last Week Made History. But It Wasn’t the First Wildcat Strike in Pro Sports

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  On Wednesday last week, the Orlando Magic came out on the court and went through their usual warmups before their scheduled fifth playoff game with the Milwaukee Bucks at Disney World in Florida. But as the buzzer sounded to begin the game, the Bucks were still in the locker room. They were discussing how to respond to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin — an hour from Milwaukee — on August 23. Seve...

Fed up Chargers demand changes in emotional first trip to SoFi Stadium

INGLEWOOD — Chargers coach Anthony Lynn drove to SoFi Stadium on Thursday undecided if his players were going practice for the first time at their new home. His mind was heavy with thoughts surrounding the protests that ensued in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after a police officer shot and paralyzed Jacob Blake, a Black man, on Sunday. “Sometimes it just seems like it’s not getting better,” Lynn said about racial injustice and police brutality in the United States, “like it might be getting worse.” L...

Players Lead Sports Strike to Put Focus on Racial Injustice

Four years to the day after Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem of an NFL preseason game to protest the oppression of Black people in the United States, the Milwaukee Bucks refused to play their NBA playoff game and set off an NBA-wide strike, as well as strikes by teams in the WNBA, MLB, and MLS. They were reacting to the attempted murder of Jacob Blake by a Kenosha police officer on Sunday and the subsequent inaction by officials to take any disiplinary action against the offic...

Alexander: Maybe walking, instead of kneeling, will finally make the point

We should not be surprised. Four years ago Wednesday, to the day, Colin Kaepernick first protested during the national anthem to bring attention to police brutality against minorities. Anyone taking an honest look will acknowledge that little has changed in those four years, except for the demonization of Kaepernick by segments of society that misinterpreted his action, in some cases willfully so. So after Jacob Blake was shot in the back seven times by a Kenosha, Wis., policeman Sunday while hi...

(CNN) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he wished the league had “listened earlier” to Colin Kaepernick when he began protesting during the National Anthem back in 2016.

How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years

The Associated Press report described a Vietnam war veteran stepping onto the basketball court during a Division III women’s college game and thrusting an American flag toward the 21-year-old forward who’d turned away from it during the national anthem that night, as she had before every game that season. “She disgraced herself and she disgraced the flag,” Jerry Kiley, 56, was quoted as saying then. Seventeen years later, the Lakers, Clippers and a vast majority of their NBA colleagues are kneel...

Dumba Speaks for NHL and Hockey Diversity Alliance Before Oilers/Blackhawks Game

The puck dropped Saturday in Edmonton’s Rogers Place and Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena for the pandemic-delayed 2020 Stanley Cup playoffs. There is an unusual air to the games without live audiences and with social distancing protocols in place. And amidst all of that, there is also the peaceful but very present uprising against social and racial injustice in North America and around the world. Both were front and centre prior to the opening faceoffs on Saturday. Related: Oilers’ Dougie Weigh...
