America’s mistreatment of its Black citizens

September 4, 2020

When a seventeen-year-old White boy walks down the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, with a loaded automatic weapon, he is cheered and thanked by the police and offered a water bottle.

Sports Have the Potential to Help Unite Us; Racial Slurs Must Go
