(Don't) Shut Up And Dribble

Whenever there is a hot social issue that takes place, our athletes are at the forefront fighting that battle. Unfortunately, they almost always told, "shut up and dribble". Here's the thing, if our athletes aren't allowed to give voice to the voiceless, then who will? Because, let's be honest, the average black man, will almost always be silenced before he has a chance to say anything. The tragedy of Jacob Blake being shot 7x's in the back in Kenosha Wisconsin, shows very clearly, that there is a huge bias in how police officers handle black men vs. white men when they commit crimes (allegedly). I for one, am glad that Lebron James and various other athletes are using their platforms to give voice to those that truly and desperately needs it. I wish race problems weren't a thing, but the string of unfortunate shootings, leads me to believe otherwise. Athletes, please continue to use your platform to continue the fight for equality. This brotha, is very grateful!

About the Podcast

Guys of the Round Table
The podcast that talks about life as it happens.
Guys of the Round Table is a podcast that tries to speak on current events with a fair and objective point of view. Here we try to abstain from the "hot take" narrative that everyone goes after. We don't try to demean anyone or their beliefs. Here we try to understand the underlying issues of ideals and try to figure out a solution to them (if there is one). We will talk about anything from sports, politics, relationships, family, religion and a host of other topics. Bottom line, we try to keep an open line of communication to what is going on in the world around us. We are dedicated to learning and growing. Above all else, try to impart a little sanity in a crazy world.
