"But sometimes this huge global olympic stage with all its pomp and nationalism. Become something much more like when the. Us women's soccer team took a knee before their match earlier this week. The united states will take a knee before kick-off australians matilda's gathered around the circle in solidarity for decades olympic athletes and black american athletes in particular have used the bright lights of the games to draw attention to social and racial issues. Even though the rules in the olympic charter prohibited any kind of political expression. John carlos and tommie smith negro runners who won medals in the two hundred meter race today were ordered by the united states olympic committee to leave mexico earlier. They were suspended for raising black gloved fists. While star spangled banner was being played at an awards ceremony. The iconic image of sprinters giancarlos thomas myth shoeless with their black gloved fists raised high on the winner's podium. During the nineteen sixty eight olympic games in mexico city has become an enduring symbol of the emergence of the black athlete. I don't like being discriminated against discriminated against me all black people same as me. I still stamp blackness. i still stands for me People think i'm anti american. I'm not anti american amanda racism. The image is remembered as a catalyst for power pride and protest. Their names are etched in history as much for their stance at their prowess on the track but they weren't the only ones kicking button challenging racism and white supremacy back in one thousand nine hundred eight. There's a whole generation of activists athletes who in big and small ways challenged the status quo on the world's biggest age but whose remembered who's put onto posters and history.

"Thank you for having me on the honor to be on this morning and we share similar sentiments role model and a mentor for me. I'm honored to be serving in a chair named after him. I'm so glad. Thank you very much for joining us. So let's talk about the olympics and many of us still remember that back in sixty eight. There were two star. After american track stars. Tommie smith and john carlos raise a gloved hands in protest during the medal ceremonies olympics and they paid a huge price huge price sent home and ostracized for many many years. Now we're facing this this question about protesting in the two thousand twenty one olympic. So what do you think should happen at the olympics in terms of any kind of protest by by african american american athletes. That's a great question In epo think back to nineteen sixty eight olympics. Many people forget lew alcindor now known as kareem abdul-jabbar he actually chose not to attend the olympics. As an act of protests. Wild mia titus. She wore black shorts. Over solid era civil rights movement so there were a number of protests Beyond tommie smith. And john carlos that olympics of but t to the point that you raise the consequences for certain types of activism are not equal and there is a risk that you run when you're challenging the status quo but what i will say is this. I personally think that all sports is every aspect of our society is political in. So if we're going to Play a national anthem People should also be able to peacefully protest and express discontent with whatever may be going on within that nation state. You know internationally. There are a number of human rights violations a number of injustices that are taking place on within various countries. And i think athletes as well as any citizen of a particular country should have the right to peacefully challenge those injustices and draw attention to those invested. So if it was up to me. I think the ioc should allow Peaceful protests to take place..

"As part of the opening for that day of competition was being played yeah. It was not being played for the medal ceremony for the women's hammer throw although he felt it was being played deliberately in an way to to almost beat her into doing something. But that that that's debatable. It's debatable for sure and i think you know. The timing was a little suspicious because the apparently the days before they had been doing it at a certain time in for some reason it was delayed until this moment so it seems a little suspicious. So really i think activism comes in so many different forms and protesting on a podium or like mark said beforehand which i think is very noble is a part of it as long as we can continue that snowball effect hopefully to get real sustained change happening within government systems within our communities and we have to realize that this is just a symbol of movements. That are happening all around us. There's a lot of work that is being put in behind the scenes with many different amazing organizations and yes athletes have a voice and this is one way we can bring attention but we also yeah we could do something greater where we we decided to come together and completely protests going to games i know tommie smith and john carlos they talked about that but then decided they wanted to use their performance as a way to speak to. It's just like like when he said she would play her heart outs when so you can show. Because here's here's the end of it. We equate winning with goodness. So however you want to see that we automatically do and if we can use winning and they equating it with goodness for actual good. There's nothing that like. I feel like great things can come from that you know. of course. there's a lot of people out there who may Subscribe to the school of thought that says shut up and dribble as was told to lebron james famously. When do you feel that. Perhaps athletes feel the pressure to do something when they don't really feel that they should be speaking out or they don't feel that it is their job to speak out. It does that put added pressure on the shoulders of some athletes. Well i think that that you know. I in particular when you have team sports you have to navigate like the team environment and like as being a an indigenous athlete on with a whole bunch of non native teammates. Even remember the attention. I got and in talking about ochre. And how the attention it ca- it can cause division issues on teams But you know and that would. That was a big concern from you know. It was always something. I was worried about right But you know what. I think that you know if you have a good team environment and you know you you do foster that i think it. It is something that a lot of teams will support But i wouldn't ever. I wouldn't expect my teammates to do it if they didn't feel comfortable. This is something that you have to believe in and like like angela mark said there are consequences and this is a real thing like when i hear of saying..

Just put that out there. Because i do see a lot of people saying that and i'm like is not the only thing you know and duly noted also at the same time it's like like i said i understand because look she clearly knew the rules right like right it clearly. We're gonna they were gonna test. You and marijuana is one of the things on the list that you're going to get tested for so obviously you made the choice to like no one. I know we're not arguing that point you were wrong. We're not wrong point. But the fact that she admitted it and the fact that she did ineffective is just frigging marijuana. Okay clearly needs to speed up with the times and we my and my thing is and again the dismay i feel like if it's not a performance enhancer. It's not a muslim producer. I feel like the role should be like you. Are you thirty days. You're going to get another test and if you get another test you're out like you know like something like more formal obey and all them people that keep saying out. Why allowed arosh they say how.

Suspension that ends july twenty seven which would be an time to run in the women's relay guy so i did. Everybody read the whole article. So i mean i don't. I don't bet. I've i've read that. I've seen that posted. So i believe that her taking that thirty day suspension. She still will be able to participate in the relays and we might be able to get her black joy. Her black girl magic on and the olympics. But let me just since we on this topic the olympics in tokyo. I'm bob diz closed from not even watching. Okay i'm bout this close. Okay for the ball.

Okay this also stems back in nineteen sixty eight to black athletes. Tommie smith and john carlos were expelled from the olympic village after they raised their gloved fists and a symbol of protests while standing in The podium after taking third and first place in the two hundred meter okay.

And I could just hold the seats. Hey, hold on a sec. I'll be right back. He put so it counsel when I have council meeting tomorrow, why are later say should say, um You know it's his seat, because I don't know Does he works as P G Sittenfeld of the day is there that they take his chair and just tilted forward?

Rygel have that for you coming up here in five on 700 wlw. In the meantime, we're talking about Saving the Bangles. You save the Bangles, not by drafting some really great offensive lineman, bringing some free agents and as they did the off season, but rather rather by bringing him Colin capper Nick for a workout. That's what the Bangles need to do What I'm telling you. I'm telling you, that's the Bangles need to do because that's the kind of thing the Bengals do. 513749 7800 the big one in pounds 780, Auntie Terry and reading on the big one. Hey, Terry, they've got our year. I'm good. What's up, buddy? Hey, I just want to give you a little quick note on how the Bangles embrace controversy and so on and so forth. 1968, Mexico on Olympic Do you remember John Carlos and Tommie Smith, raising their fifth and opposition of four black power and they were after side after that. Do you remember two years later, alter conservative Paul Brown. Signed Tommy Smith, Miss Matty. Yeah, and that was in the sixties now within the 62 with much like 2020 minus the pandemic, and Paul Brownstein Kami Smith at the wide receiver to a contract and he played for the Bangles. I don't know he actually played. I think we played Tommie Smith did but right now, he another Bengals had interest. I know they signed him up. Yeah, he actually played he played for about a year for the Bangles obviously didn't do too well. People have been playing still. Yeah, obviously, obviously so, to your point. Why not bring it in? I think you know. I just heard the commercial port for the Bangles. And they can't sell out limited seating right now. Exactly. So don't you think that by bringing in Colin Kaepernick there would be people there going? Hey, I've got my I've got a ticket stub from the first game calling Kaepernick plate or the ticket stub for when Colin Cabinet first Shut up, There'd be no question about it in the attention around the NFL wouldn't be about how pathetic the Bengals are it be about this up lifting, redemptive story about Colin Kaepernick. Getting the long deserves second chance he so deserves. That's what the narrative would be 100% that makes perfect sense. Sad about wins and losses. But tell me ask you something. When is the last time it has ever been about wins and losses with your Cincinnati Bengals? The answer would be. I can't remember. Maybe since Paul Brown LeBron had a lot of their tools at his disposal to But clearly ever since the Mike Brown air, this team is set up to do just that if they're listening at Paul Brown Stadium. I would say this do the right thing. Give Colin capper Nika try up and buy the right thing. I mean, bottom line. I don't care if it's not about I agree with you. I'm thinking like you now. I'm not. I'm not being a bangle semi saying what we if we just draft a couple more got No, I'm not talking about that. E. I don't care about that. Mike Brown doesn't care about. They don't care about that. I don't care about, you know, having a a front office staff there that is running on fumes. They don't care about having the league minimum amount of personnel. They don't care about practice bubbles. Don't care about any of that stuff. They care about. They care about the bottom line. The win column is not wins and losses. The win column is looking at that bank account and seeing how many fat stacks lineup that's what that's what it's about and dangling, got understand. We run things differently here in Cincinnati. In the NFL, little NFL cities that Jerry Jones is the Bob Crafts of the world. They care about winning that. Come about putting a product on the field of me having that chip on here way. Don't care about that. About the bottom line. You on your fantasy Banking league. He's a personal number one right owner. That's your guy. If you had a fantasy of fantasy financially, I'll ask Amy Wagner about this the fantasy Finance League that Jerry Jones that Bob Kravitz, Mike Brown. So what you do is you bring Captain for a workout. Even just the workout. You gave her many buzzing. Any bit of it. It looks terrible. You sign them anyway. You what do you got to lose? Don't have any Louis everything the game Financial gain. Jersey sales ATTENTION, media attention you become the city that gives Colin Kaepernick a second chance right next, and we'll think of the iconic story they could do on the NFL today where they decided. But why did you bring Colin Kaepernick for the step beleaguered franchise and hopes he can. He can help Joe Bro, turn this thing around in the future and be that stopgap and maybe he'll be burrows back up.

Ah, Naomi Osaka, the tennis player didn't wanna place. I mean, you know, there was Jason Heyward from the cub. There were some MLB games that were played, so it's definitely a flashpoint, and it's about Bringing attention to something taking a stand and causing that discussion to further you know, this is such a politicized topic. It's beyond you know, individual being shot, and then you know the subsequent more unrest and violence and vandalism destruction of Kenosha. It's been a summer of this unrest. In the midst of covert, and I mean, I don't know about you. I mean, it's a report on it every day it is addressed. It's exhausting, but I have to do with professionally but also on a personal level. It does hit and I got a separate those two things, and it's often difficult to do one's social media. I can only imagine and it is, But I mean and you know, I don't know if you get emotional, but you get personal, and I think that that's important to share to share your experiences. And you're seeing that I think that the athletes can raise that use their powerful voices to raise awareness. I wonder Ryan. It's a platform back, but is there more they can do? To to be part of the solution. I think that that is the one part of it. But when I hear people ask, Look, you are powerful people with, you know, re sources and access to power That's even bigger than yourselves. And so is there something 1st 1st. I think they do a lot in the MBA is very active in the community and has been so for some time. I mean, I mean, let's not forget LeBron James founded his own school and accurate When he founded his own school for you know, underprivileged, marginalized kid to put its own money on the line alone school, So I mean, and and he he's most popular player on the planet, So let's just start there. In terms of setting the tone, and that's just one thing. Chris Paul has been very active on social causes and a lot of players and you know, yes, you can. You can Talk about it. But you have to be about it. I think focusing purely on yesterday. That was significant because they said, we're not going to play, but I think, um, you know, Yes, I think they're willing to engage in that discussion. I think even using their platform, which is how they get paid is the other thing. It's not like they're profession. They could do this when there's 60. 50 40, and some guys can't even do it in their thirties. They have a finite small window to earn as much money as they possibly can. And in a profession that very few people on the planet. Are able to do no question and to risk that because you don't know what the father is going to be. I mean, look, I have a picture in my Man Cave. Made well, the little corn I'm allowed to have of of Tommie Smith and John Carlos in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, and you know, I was really intrigued to hear Tommy Smith's comments today. He won the gold medal, but he and Don Carlos on the medal stand. Four black clubs and raised their fists and they were ostracised and, you know, stripped of their Olympic glory for four decades. Because of that pain a you know a significant price and sacrifice for what they believed in and you know Mohammed Ali. I mean, there's been sports stars throughout the year who played a significant price to stand up for what they believe in using their platform in their conviction. You know, but we're not suited to this this degree in the MBA, and it's always always goes back to the money. But it makes so much money. They're not going to do it, but they did it.

"The second with Wynton Marsalis playing trumpet both from the soundtrack of the film motherless Brooklyn which was written directed by my guest Edward Norton who also stars in the film a lot of attention to movie music you know sometimes like the soundtrack this kind of ruined the film for me because I think the music is so let the land or corny or predictable that it just it just gives me give me a bad feeling it makes me think like how good can this movie be if the director chose that music hello and then the opposite happens to where the music's really great I just feel like I'm in I couldn't agree more it can make or break a film it at a level that I don't think it's hard for people even grasp how different the outcome of the film can be if the music is exceptional versus you know by now and I think there's an unfortunate reality the way you make films which is you have to edit the film in for a long time you have to work with temporary music is very very very rare that people get to work with their composer all through the course of the making of the film and it usually comes at the tail and it's usually a little rushed and as a result a lot of film music is what I get I would call it it's a cheap mirror of what's already taking place in the film it illustrates or just emphasizes the exact same thing that the scene is telling you in all its other dimensions it's not its own voice it's not it's own thread of emotion and what it's great the opposite is true it it is it's own thing that gives you a different information than you're getting in any other way let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more if you're just joining us my guest is Edward Norton and he wrote directed and stars in the film motherless Brooklyn we'll be right back this is fresh AIR at seven fifty one support for KQED comes from San Jose museum of art Olympic gold medalists Tommie Smith's historic.

The Sunday shows continue in fourteen minutes time until then we take you to book TV on C span. Two today is the first Sunday of the month when we host guest for three our discussion today, it's author and sportswriter Dave's 'Iran talking about his books and taking viewer questions. He's on C span. Two until three PM eastern. Mr. siren is the author of what's my name fool game over and the recently published Jim Brown last man standing we listen in for ten minutes about this with the Raisa Bolsonaro. I'm both. In my opinion. A very scary figure in many respects for how he speaks about women. How he speaks about gay people always speaks about what he wants to do the Amazon rainforest speaks about indigenous people. There was just an indigenous protest at the Brazilian embassy here in Washington DC about Bolsonaro, and in the political analyses that I'm looking at there really is nothing about the ways in which the World Cup in the Olympics helped pave this road for him to take power because it bread so much anger and dissatisfaction. I mean in two thousand thirteen before the World Cup. There were these mass marches taking place on the stadiums as they were being built so you had Brazilians by the thousands protesting soccer. I mean this thing about it'd be like New Yorkers protesting pizza you'd never see that. And yet you saw it in Brazil. Nine hundred sixty eight Mexico City. John Carlos did not just come out of a vacuum. Did he know Tommie Smith, and John Carlos a lot of people know that moment where John Carlos and Tommie Smith raise their fists to the heavens one thousand nine hundred sixty eight but they don't realize that it was also a movement called the Olympic project for human rights. Not just a moment. But a movement in this movement was built for the liberation of black athletes who was built as a way to organize. Not just a protest, but a boycott of the Olympic Games, and it was doing so around a series of demands like this inviting South African Rhodesia from the Olympics like getting Avery Brundage. The head of the International Olympic Committee, whose nickname was slavery Avery getting him to step down for what we're perceived as his is racism is head of the International Olympic Committee. So it was built around a series of demands. And then when the boycott didn't happen Tommie Smith and John Carlos felt like they still needed to do something to commemorate the struggle. And so in October of nineteen sixty eight the summer Olympics were in October that year a lot of people they're taken aback by that. But that was the the storm season in the summer of Mexico. They didn't want to have the Olympics then but knock Tober of nineteen sixty eight they raise their fists, but they didn't just raise their fists with with gloves on each hand. They also weren't wearing shoes to protest poverty. They're aware. Wearing beads around their neck as a symbol of the history of violence and lynching in the United States, and they're all wearing buttons that said Olympic project for human rights, and it has to be mentioned that in the silver medal. Stand was an Australian runner named Peter Norman who is also wearing a button that said Olympic project for human rights, a tremendous show of solidarity and an image. That has stood the test of time that and Muhammad Ali standing over Sonny liston, I would argue are the two most famous sports photos of the twentieth century.
