Colin Kaepernick Vs. Systemic Oppression

May 16, 2017, 11:00 AM

This week on the Edge of Sports Podcast, we give an inside look at the Know Your Rights Camps being hosted by free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, as he and a remarkable team of people try to educate youth on their legal rights, health, history and financial literacy. We also tear apart the disinformation campaign being put forward by nameless NFL executives about why Colin Kaepernick is without a job. This episode also includes a six minute interview that I did with Kaepernick at the camp. Then, assessing Kaepernick's  impact and putting it in a historical continuum with Professor Lou Moore. We also have a dramatic reading of Nigel Hayes' "commencement" speech to the University of Wisconsin, Lastly we take a ton of listener phone calls. An unforgettable show.Know Your Rights CampaignTwitter: @yourrightscamp Louis Moore @Loumoore12, Colin Kaepernick's Message to Chicago Youth: Know Your Rights Hayes Essay— | | | | email us: | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Music: Eye Examination - Del the Funky Homosapien | Brooklyn's Finest - Jay-Z | The Questions - Common | Goodlife - Kanye West | Be - Common | Day 'N Nite - Kid Cudi | Mass Appeal - Gang Starr | Where My Dogs At - DMX | The Game - Jurassic 5 | OK - Madeon | So Much for Love - Gramatik | I Didn't Know, Didn't I - DJ Nu-Mark | The Wire Outro
