SORT BY Relevancy
Odell Beckham of the New York Giants was suspended a game after repeated altercations with members of the Carolina Panthers. After, reports said that Beckham was subjected to gay slurs before the game and ex-players said the receiver has been subjected to such slurs all season.
The matter was dropped at Beckham's appeal but many questions remain. Were slurs used? How frequently" Why were they not brought up at the hearing? What is it about such slurs that allow them to still carry a lot of weight in sports?
We also look back at the year in LGBT sports.
Just when we thought the rederick had reached it's boiling point, Donald Trump suggests that we ban all Muslims from entering the country. As ridiculous as this seems, he has supporters. How have we reached a point where we label all Muslims as terrorists? How far have we really come as a society? Racial profiling still exists yet we're encouraged to just tolerate it. How can we move beyond the hashtags and make real change in our society? We will talk about this on Justified Madness this week.

For the most part, I'm not talking about blatant, in-your-face "N word" confrontations. I'm talking cowardly, ingrained, without-a-thought and possibly subconscious behaviors which tacitly and overtly tell a person they're valued less by society than those with White skin.
Have you ever been accused of getting into a school because you were Black and NOT because you were damned smart, studied your behind off, applied for early decision and were in the top 10 percent of your class?? A school at which you'd eventually make the Dean's List? I have.
-Have you ever been detained, not just pulled to the side, but detained in a separate holding area at an airport with other people of color and no one else who was detained was White? I have.
-Have you ever had your voicemail called in the middle of the night and had the caller yell "NIGGER" on the same day you wrote a story that prominently featured and was about a health issue that primarily affects Blacks? I have.
-Have you ever been told to use the porta-potty (as an adult) in a rich White subdivision instead of the one in the WELCOME center you just walked into? I have.
-Have you ever been interviewing someone who very clearly assumed you were White and went on and on about "those people" moving in and ruining "my" neighborhood? Then had to meet the person face-to-face and watch their chin drop? I have.
Robert's guests are Byron Durham , Erin Heaney (national ), Christine Irvine, Chicago from Standing Up for Racial Justice
The civil rights movement of the 60s was a rainbow in terms of both race and age; young and old, black and white worked together to achieve voting rights and roll back segregation in the south. As new voter suppression laws are introduced nationwide, unarmed African Americans are gunned down in the street by police, it will take another multi-racial, multi-age movement to achieve racial justice.
Robert's guests will discuss how the struggle for racial justice is everyone's fight.
“The colonial history, the legacy of enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism, and racial inequality in the US remains a serious challenge as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent. Contemporary police killings and the trauma it creates are reminiscent of the racial terror lynchings in the past. Impunity for state violence has resulted in the current human rights crisis and must be addressed as a matter of urgency.” The United Nations
