In this week’s episode, Kieran, Kwame, Steven & Yaf finally record together in the same room for the first time in months. The guys pick up where they left off from the last discussion and speak on racism with a focus on sport this time around. Steven begins by sharing his account of being profiled on his bike by the police en route to record (9.20) and the group discusses the concept of classism (16:43). With the current situation in the NBA (23:26) seeing players campaigning whether to play or not to make a real statement against systemic racism the crew discuss basketball before turning their attention to racism in football (36:00) and explore how we confront the ugly truth in the beautiful game. Lastly, the collective recall experiences from their younger years and their parents expressing their fears because of the danger that exists to young black men. Stay tuned for the next episode.
