Terez Paylor & Charles Robinson lay down their thoughts on another difficult week in America after Jacob Blake, a Black man in Kenosha, Wisconsin was shot multiple times by police, followed by the ensuing murder of two protesters by an out-of-state member who appeared to have been aided by local police. On Wednesday, the Milwaukee Bucks did not take the court for their first-round playoff game against the Orlando Magic in protest of these events, and soon the rest of the NBA's remaining teams followed suit with the full slate of games on Wednesday and Thursday being postponed. A number of MLB games were also rescheduled and many NFL teams have cancelled their practices in the last 24 hours.
While discussing how this may affect the NFL in two weeks when the season kicks off in Kansas City, Terez shares a personal story about why these issues are so important and how a mundane occurrence that might seem trivial to most is potentially dangerous for Black men and women in America.
