    Where Are They Now?Plattsburgh High School Hornets-

    Since I began working with you back in your junior year, of high school physical fitness has always been a big part of your life. How have you transitioned from being a athlete and training year around for your sport to staying active in regular daily life?

    I’ve tried to be a bit creative lately and have tried to stay active in ways other than weight lifting. I really enjoy mountain biking and hiking. I’ve also spent a lot of the time I used to spend training exploring other activties. I’ve found that in my last 6 months here I’ve seen and done more in the area than I did in my fours years in high school. I’ve also been wine tasting in Napa/Sonoma and skiing in Tahoe, which I never did before either. My main interests now are to start surf fishing and swimming more regularly.

    The murder of Malcolm X, the exile of Robert F. Williams, who was forced the flee to Cuba with the combined terrors of the FBI and the minions of Southern justice snapping at his heels, and the exile of the late W.E.G.  Du Bois, who, in the sunset of a valiant life, made three symbolic gestures as a final legacy to his people (renouncing his American citizenship, ‘returning’ to Africa to become a citizen of Ghana, and cursing capitalism while extolling communism as the hope of the future) —these three events on the one hand, and on the other hand the award of a Nobel Prize to Martin Luther King and the inflation of the image to that of an international hero, bear witness to  the historical fact that the only Negro American allowed to attain national or international fame have been the puppets and lakers of the white power structure—and entertainers and athletes….

    It is against the back ground of the traditional role of the Negro entertainer and athlete in racial crisis and the rebellion against that tradition — that the Muhammad  Ali— Floyd Patterson fight for the heavyweight championship must be viewed."  Soul On Ice by Eldridge Cleaver 

    "Malcolm X knew that he needed a prominent ally to help him launch a new organization once his permanent suspension became public.   It so happened that Cassius Clay, scheduled to fight Sonny Liston  for the heavyweight championship of the world, was a good friend of Malcolm X, one of the few people Malcolm X ever invited to this house….." JUdas Factor Karl Evanzz

    "The broad support for Muhammed Ali among negroes had nothing to do with the black Muslims’  racist ideology.  Even the followers of the late beloved Malcolm X, many of whom despise Muhammad Ali for the scurvy remarks he made about the fallen Malcolm….." Soul On Ice

    MLB's efforts to find out LGBT team executives. Plus, more Gus Kenworthy.

    in LGBT

    Major League Baseball is recruiting LGBT people for team front offices, and they want you. Billy Bean and MLB exec Wendy Lewis have not been quiet about their efforts to ensure opportunities for out LGBT people to find careers in baseball as they have been reaching out to the community about their upcoming Diversity Business Summit in March. Our article this week highlighted their efforts and introduced people to two current out gay MLB team execs - Orioles' Greg Bader and Nationals' Steve Reed - who have been widely accepted by their teams. How much of an impact do these efforts have? And will that translate into more opportunities?

    When Gus Kenworthy came out on the cover of ESPN The Magazine, he got tons of attention for breaking a barrier in a "bro" sport and doing it as an Olympic medalist. Yet one other pro skier didn't much like how Kenworthy came out and the seeming attention he was drawing to himself for being gay. Is there such thing as too much attention for a gay athlete? And do this other skier's comments show that some teammates might not like the attention a gay athlete receives?
