Sports/History: Tommie Smith Raised A ‘Black Power’ Fist During The Medal Ceremony At The 1968 Olympics… With No Regrets (Video)

Talk about REPRESENTING! You know the black and white video at the Olympic games back, back in the day, with the raised fists in it? Yes, this guy, that part!

Tommie Smith sits down with Bill Rhoden to discuss the 50th anniversary of his iconic gesture at the Olympics and how it is relevant in these times.

Shout to John Carlos (the other athlete who raised his fist on the podium), too. Watch this though. Great insights on what modern day athletes can and should be doing with their platforms for humanity, applauding Colin Kaepernick for his taking a knee and taking a stand.

Jalen Rose & Jadakiss Talk About Artists’ Taking A Stand And Defending Their Music (Video)

Jada spoke on it: “All money isn’t good money.” It was good that Hip-Hop let EA Sports know that we stand with Kaep. Rappers can take a knee and take a stand, esp. when it comes to ‘mistaken’ censorship of their music.

(Hard to believe they called removing Kaep’s mentions in song lyrics a mistake.)

Jadakiss joins Jalen Rose to talk about the fact that Colin Kaepernick’s name was edited out of a verse in Madden 19 from a Big Sean song, and how the former San Francisco 49ers QB’s name was added back in after Big Sean’s complaints.

C’mon! Are you kidding me?? It’s not even close! We know who’d win, head-up, one-on-one, right? Yeah, you already know… Alright then. That’s all I gotta say.

You cannot tell me in a one-on-one game though that LeBron James wouldn’t dominate Mike.
Jay Williams

DL Hughley Salutes Co-Host Michael Smith And Others At ESPN For Having Jemele Hill’s Back At ESPN (Video)

Wow! If this is true… wow! Talk about sticking together. Michael Smith, risking his career, apparently told ESPN something like ‘I refuse to do the show if you let Jamele Hill go!’ He backed his co-host – willing to sacrifice his livelihood – and so did a small army of others. Yes, before ESPN could even consider kicking Smith out, too, Elle Duncan and Michael Eaves stepped on some ‘if they go, so do WE’ stuff. Even Michael Wilbon took some air time to vocalize strong support for Hill.

I really hope DL has the scoop on what is a true, and truly beautiful, story of solidarity. That’s how you get your people’s back!

Ray Allen Knows His Move From Boston To Miami Was Hard On The Fans. But Management & Teammates, They Should Understand… It Was Business (Video)

Plain talk from former Celtics standout Ray Allen. Here he is in Shanghai, telling his side of the story. In essence, he is letting viewers & fans know that it wasn’t him wanting to leave Boston, it was the Celtics… not doing what it took to keep him there. No beef with nobody on his side, even though some folks apparently reeeeally had HEAT for him for taking his talents to South Beach.

Ray Allen spoke in an exclusive interview with Tencent’s Lisa Hsu about the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Paul Pierce and being a champion. Tencent, ESPN’s partner in China, is hosting its annual Super Penguin Basketball Celebrity Game in Shanghai.
– ESPN

Makes some good points in this interview. Pro sports is BUSINESS, not personal. And there is NO loyalty. The Celts could have dropped Allen, and that would be that; not a tear shed.
