Dr. King's Legacy of Sports & Politics

Apr 10, 08:00 AM

This week we speak to Professor Louis Moore about his research on Dr. Martin Luther King's connection to world of sports and politics. Also, we have choice words about politicians who slam NFL players protesting NFL players while mouthing bromides about Dr. King. 

On top of all that, we got a ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ award for former NBA player Matt Barnes and notorious Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, Kaepernick Watch, and more!
