"Now to Michael Jordan. So this is so that's the backdrop of his playing career. It's an era where athletes taking stances. They don't have the same platforms available to them, and the Times didn't feel like you know when do people break home run records or or? Have thirty point triple doubles for the season. It's when the conditions are conducive to that sort of thing. You know in a normal NBA era, it's going to average thirty point triple double Michael Jordan averaged thirty, two, eight, eight, one year because he's the greatest ever and even in an era that did not favor that sort of stat line he put it up. But generally when you see one, thousand, nine, sixty, one, sixty, two, whatever you know Wiltz averaging fifty and twenty five and Elgin's averaging thirty seven and Oscar Robertson thirty point triple double on the season that's because they're. So, much better than magic and bird and and all these Hakim and all these guys. It's because the era in which they played was conducive to those sorts of stat lines just like today you think westbrook and harden everybody is better than Kobe and Shaq and not know that error they're playing it is conducive to it. So Michael Jordan existed in an era where it was much more unusual for an athlete to take the kind of stance that Colin Kaepernick has taken. Were for a team like the bucks to refused play. Mahmoud, Abdel Raouf member. Chris Jackson. was had a short career kind of because he didn't want to stand for the national anthem. There was very few and far between like athlete willing to do that. So, Jordan played in that kind of an era and was criticized because he also was forging a path as a business man as as a as a as a magnet as a billionaire owner. and. So he was working the system from the inside and it seemed more concerned about his business than social, justice issues. And Lebron seemed to be really showing the way in this era like look at whether or not. Lebron's the greatest player ever. To me, it's clearly Michael Jordan but when you add the off the field stuff. I, don't know Mike you got to put up all the business success against not only a lot of business success, it Lebron's head, but also the social. Justice issues. Michael Jordan's competitive not suggesting that's why he's it but. Jordan. In advance of the franchise owners meeting about player walkouts Jordan reached out to National Basketball Players Association President Cripple, as well as Russell Westbrook to learn more about what the players hope to achieve and assistance Jordan. The NBA's only black team owner and chairman of its Labor. Relations Committee reportedly served as a quote voice of reason, during the franchise owner meetings urging the other team owners to allow players to get their voice out. Before offering their own solutions right now listening is better than talking Jordan told the group according to sources. Look not only is he everyone's wearing twenty three because of Michael Jordan he is the man other than maybe. Muhammad. Ali. The most famous athlete ever. In the history of planet earth. And I would argue the greatest athlete in the history of planet earth I know people would say like Jim Thorpe Bo Jackson or multiple. Sports Jim, Brown, multiple sport athletes, you know what I mean His what he did in the NBA and the what that took in the NBA to be that much better than everybody else. In a sport that that that's that athletic that's the guy. There's a reason. He's a billionaire owner right now. So. When he talks or when he listens or tells players to listen that carries more weight than just about anyone else. So. That's good on that side. But how about this? Jordan, brand who months and months ago at this point stepped up and said, we're donating one hundred million over the next ten years. Now I know it's only ten million a year only a lot of money but not compared to the profits they make. But ten, million a year over ten years. One, hundred, million I thought what if every basketball team did that? That's three billion over the next ten years what a football followed that six billion what if baseball followed your up to nine billion? Ten billion dollars over the next ten years and then I thought wait a minute. Michael Jordan is the only black owner. African American owner. If, you just look at. NBA Nfl. Predominantly African American sports. He's the only African American owner at a sixty two owners. So, sixty two owners. There are roughly six hundred billionaires in the United States. So. The NBA and the NFL combined their ownership represents ten percent of all billionaires in the united. States, you know when you hear about. Guys like Bernie Sanders talking about income inequality and. How the minimum wage is this look at all these billionaires the reason they point that out is because they're close to the levers of power and they have a lot of influence, and if Jordan gets the owners on board and the NFL follow suit, there may be nothing that would have a bigger impact on the issues at the players care about. It's like a second career for him. To make right maybe what he didn't get just right when he was a player the Max Kellerman show presented by progressive insurance drivers to save with Progressive Save over seven hundred, fifty dollars on average be right back..

"Now after a moment of silence that lasted forty two seconds. Day before we celebrate Jackie Robinson Day. The mets are exiting the field after both teams exchanged a wave of caps to one another. So it would appear as though. After appointed moment. At the mets and Marlins will not be playing baseball tonight. Data black lives matter shirts. Left on top of home plate. Forty two of course, Jackie, Robinson's number. That video and audio courtesy of S N Y. What's interesting to me and the mets have a connection to the Brooklyn dodgers they were you know the non Yankees team in town in fact, the mets took the pin straight from the Yankees and the the color of the blue from the dodgers and the orange from the New York giants and so in a way I wanna say Mike Vaccaro wrote this today they're kind of the inheritors of in a way of Jackie Robinson's legacy in New York City among the baseball teams. The interesting thing to me about the NHL players saying wait a minute maybe we shouldn't be playing. 'cause like the NBA that's been handled correctly novick cases. They're going to crown a champion most likely unless they decide not to see the NBA the and the NHL have their destinies, their fates in their own hands if they decide not to play, it's because they're making a statement not because pandemic virus has shut them down. But And by the way, a lot of NHL players. Sorry, fans. And players who were mad at me because I said, look in the United States, of America, the NHL is not one of the major four sports I met, professor? Of the professional sports you could argue it is what I meant was what I mean is there's a huge drop off we don't really even cover baseball that much in national media but S- clearly, there's a huge drop off in terms of the size of the economy between football basketball and baseball on the one hand and the NHL and the other nevertheless and college football's bigger than the NHL at least culturally here, and also if you look at the economy sports but nevertheless of the of the Professional Sports Leagues, the NHL is one of the four. But Major. League baseball and I think the African American the percentage of African American players in major. League. Baseball's below ten percents still. That way when I was a kid, it was above, but it's below fell lot below ten percent and the NHL is lower than that obviously and when those leagues starts saying. Wait a minute. When the players in those leagues start saying, we'll wait a minute. That represents to me a sea change. The tide. or rather the current is changing the the wind is changing. You put your finger in the air it's blowing in a different direction now. When going back to the to the Brooklyn dodgers when Jackie Robinson broke in he was he was people were throwing stuff at them, making death threats to him and his family. Saying Vile? Things. From the, from the stance and pee wee reese who was beloved beloved a beloved player in Major League Baseball and in Brooklyn. The shortstop all star now hall of fame shortstop for the dodgers went over to Jackie Robinson and put his arm around Jackie. Robinson which signaled to the Brooklyn dodgers fans. He's with me if you're with me, then you're with him. And he's with you. He's part of the team does my brother right here? That was a significant moment. In fact I mentioned that about. About Colin Kaepernick. I. Encouraged when when his protests was first underway hey, it would be nice if some white teammate. Came and put his arm at least figuratively around Colin Kaepernick cause systemic racism is not a black problem. We've made it african-american people's problems, but it's a white problem. The racism there's a White Problem Chris Rock. Said this years ago, and by the way it's it's true at a like a sociological. When he says people keep saying black people make progress breath no white people have made progress. At, least until recently I think a lot of the progress. Some white people feel too much progress. Let's roll some things back. At any rate when you see hockey and baseball predominantly white league saying. We. Stand in. Solidarity. With the NBA. On. The case of cabinets protests that would be the NFL, but here the NBA. With, with African Americans. Who are? Americans and people. which you shouldn't have to say that but. The idea of black lives matter it's parenthetically to a lot of white people's every all lives matter. Yes. Black lives matter to that's what they're saying. I saw a comic strip about this A. Cartoon know where it was. They were in the middle. Of a surgery. And someone and one doctor said he's having a heart attack. And another, and another doctor says all organs matter. Just, it's it's true. All words matter but if the heart is under duress, why don't you pay attention to that? Yes all lives matter but. That's been a given for white people. Anyway. That's a big moment i. think it's a big step when predominantly white leagues are saying. We're showing solidarity with a predominantly. African. American League for an issue of racial justice. That's big to me. Rogers is Dr Harry Edwards Ready. Because I'll give you my reaction to the NBA resuming play. In a little bit. I'd like to welcome in Dr Harry Edwards. Dr. Edwards. How should I introduce you civil rights activists sociologist professor emeritus. What would you like?.

"Because when you think about it. If we could tap into Bluetooth phone I phoned in and out of our cars. And we sit. Video back to studios from the streets. Lies Seeds all how come body cams can't do that. Lie Sees back to a control center, so we watch and everything that you. Make things stricker harder. For them to get away with certain things and you say well. It's GonNa, cost millions and hundreds of million dollars. We spend you kill it up. Black folks out here left and right you spending hundreds of millions of dollars in lawsuits. You spend enough money. You spend it up. The taxpayers money on that. So why wouldn't you invest in technology? That would advance beyond this I've got to turn it on its broke. Oh, it didn't work all of US sales. Somebody died at Bodycam. Don't works. We lost the ability to Oh. Oh, I'm only is pointing up to the sky when point to the person who was on. It fell off and I run traces golf right. Listen you a one hundred percent correct about that with the technology. You could monitor somebody on the ankle bracelet. Every mood make when they get out of prison. You mean to tell you can't do automatic deal on the body CAM. And it's all about you know what you say what you're willing to put your resources towards what you're willing to do. I want to see a full of resources toward a couple of things that can change the way that the police. The minority community interact number one the needs to be a national database. That if you are a police officer registered to. And if you've been dismissed or forced into resignation, because of bad activity and one tracing, you don't get to scoot over three or four thousand over and get rehired again. You don't get to do that. If we had a national database that you messed up in one. You. Don't get another chance because that's. and. That's crazy that you say that because my kids asked me that either yesterday or Saturday. If do can get hired by another police force and I said you know I i. don't think he going to be able to, but who knows well, guys keep in mind. This is not unprecedented. This happens in other places as well whether we're talking about clergy where they moved them from one place to another, or and this isn't a perfect comparison, but. The key when you're talking about the body cams. It reminded me of something because. Even if we don't have the body, CAM situation like you're talking about you know what else we do have we have other people that are there? We have other people wearing that uniform bitter. They're watching it happen, and it's like the stupid code that we talk about a major league baseball where no one's allowed to say anything about anything. Because now you're considered a snitch or rat, or you can't do. Anything and baseball had their steroids thing. Go crazy, and it damage the sport. There are other people they need to turn in the bad ones. They need to stop the bad ones. Ones. They need to make sure that to your point, Elsie. The Bedouin doesn't go down the road and get the different job with the different force, and it's like well. You know I'm not gonNA. Say anything bad about him. Because he's one of mine, he's He. He and I share a uniform. Did there needs to be some accountability from the inside the event that the body Cam is pointed at the sky or the event? He tries to go down the road and get a job with different jurisdiction. They need to hold each other accountable for the bad ones that way those police. The. Good ones, then you can say okay. This guy is what of the good ones. This is one of the guys that we can say does have it in the right perspective because he wants that guy the guy that's doing all this stuff that we're talking about gone, but they all get their lip and don't say anything. In terms of the the vetting process of hiring background Elsevier background checks in mental checks, psychology checks all of those sorts of things on a constant basis. You know when they win AARP. Pilots get higher. They have psychological test frequently. Okay, Meka, check in all the time you need that with the police force as well On, and then you say well I would say also I know. It's not a lot of police. Forces are all different depending on the area, so you're not gonNA get minorities and all of them. But the ones that do have a minority I like to see them partnered up with each other. Okay, I I WANNA see the white.

"The yondo specific protests is what i thought was a brilliant idea please explain that well this was prior to the league turning it into a football issue right this was when it was an issue that targeted developments and issues beyond the arena and so the fact that at that point that trump had hijacked what was already fading protest movement was irrelevant because he wouldn't trump wouldn't have anything to point to accept athletes out in the community working with community leaders getting police departments along with community activists and organizers and mayors and council people and passed around the table to discuss it issue if he wanted to point to that then good i'm glad because i wanna see that publicized but they they would have taken away what it was that he was trying to dangle as a shining object in front of his base to show that he was still fighting the racist site so the that was the article that i wrote was in reference to a point before the owners turn this into a football issue an issue having to do with contradictions and conflicts with envy arena between coaches and players between owners and players between different sectors of political disposition in the locker room among players this is where this thing has broken south and to the right and now we have to deal with that are the athletes settled enough smart enough intuitive enough at this point to say okay let's take it all off the table we're not gonna protest in the arena we know that they have gotten the message when.

"More intelligent approach and response to the situation in the interest of the game and so i think the thing that i have the greatest difficulty with is the fact that th that would not be and arca straighted effort from the commissioner's office to get with the players association especially since the movement was fading anyway and say hey let's put something together that allows us to intelligently manage this because there are pressures to reinforce a sad with back validate some political interests that have nothing to do with the task at hand for us that is the minimum that i would have expected coming out of new york but that but that that didn't happen the other thing that i would say is this is that the the fans the people have to be smarter i'm shotgun surprise for example at the disposition of people toward the quote pardoning of jack johnson another cynical self serving degenerate act jack you don't pardon the victim you pardon the criminal you apologize profusely to the victim and provide reparations where it is a practical so i could see a president pro apologizing profusely jonathan you know basically put basically for an interracial relation conformable relationship the justice department and the police agencies that collaborate with the justice department to hound this man for nine years all the way to europe and then put him in jail for ten months and two thousand twenty those are the criminals but when you pardon the victim you create a situation one which is an appropriate but to you quiet all discussion of the real criminal and the crime perpetrated in many instances which is still going on the day black people being hounded and incarcerated in prison and so forth who are innocent so at the end of the day we have to be we have to be smarter if we accept this thing for example about pardoning jack johnson who don't part next till who they gonna pardon next the follow girls who died in that church bombing they've apart mega eva's we have to be smarter as a people in as a population.

"Creditable witnesses to our own experiences motives and intense as far as american society is concerned the second thing is that they've taken an issue that was targeted outside of the arena and made it a football issue this was about injustice in society they have now made it an issue between owners and players between coaches and players and even between players themselves when some players wanna take the field and stand for the anthem and others want to stay in the locker room they've also put a spotlight bigger than ever on the protesters because what is going to happen is everybody's going to be waiting for those athletes who choose not to come to the field to run out onto the field it's going to be like hail to the chief being played before the president enters the congressional chamber during the state of the union address yes that's what happened with chris jackson mahmoud abdul rahul when he didn't stand for the national anthem as a nba player they put him in the locker room and after about four games there was only one thing that the anthem had any meaning in terms of and that was just before my mood i'll do a role ran onto the court they put a bigger spotlight on the protests then ever before so this whole thing is a disaster it's coming apart people are coming out now and saying that was no official vote it was but it was informal they were hands that were raised at least two owners abstained jed york for san francisco and our mark davis from the oakland raiders they abstained and everything was in a form of order was no official votes there no official vote down there was no official those there's no official definition of what constitutes a protests so if a player raises the fist is that player is that players team going to be fine if a player simply walks out during the national anthem is.
