NFL’s Pathetic #TakeAKnee Protest & Why Charlottesville Failed

Justin Garcia, also known as Master Chim, hosts The Pressure Project podcast and runs The Jungle Gym, a martial arts academy in New York.

Justin returns to Red Ice to catch up and discuss recent events. We first discuss the recent NFL protests, which leads to a consideration of the role of professional football in American society. Justin argues that football is simply another form of escapism for people who don’t know how to live virtuously. Switching gears, we discuss the Trump administration, with Justin reminding us that we can’t expect things to change overnight. Later, we mull over what went wrong at Charlottesville, and how right-wing events in the future can be improved.
