    even harbaugh chimes in

    Harbaugh, appearing Thursday on “The Rich Eisen Show,” was asked what he’s been reading in relation to the coronavirus pandemic that shut down all campus activity at Michigan in mid-March. He said he has been more focused on Floyd.

    “Today I’ll tell you what, I’m really very upset about the George Floyd death,” Harbaugh said. “That’s got me preoccupied today. Horrendous. I’m just watching right now and looking forward to there being an investigation and waiting for charges. That’s completely outrageous.”

    Harbaugh told Eisen he and Kaepernick speak or text every few weeks.

    “There was a graphic I saw that too -- this is why he knelt,” Harbaugh said. “If you didn’t know then, you know now. That spoke volumes I thought.”

    Can’t wait to see all the right wing Facebook post about how these are privileged athletes and they get paid to play a game and should shut up.

    People of privilege will post stuff like the above not realizing that most of these well paid athletes grew up with this and come from these neighborhoods. If someone has a following or sounding board to make change due their celebrity then good for them. The irony is their god Ronald Regan was a celebrity first and rose to power using that.

    Bomani Jones has a theory that there’s a pretty direct correlation of the white football players who played high school basketball to those who actually have empathy for black people.

    Joe Burrow and Travis Kelce being prime examples.

    It’s almost as if the people who actually spent time around other races, saw that the preconceived notions that some have, are utterly ridiculous. I’d venture to say that the majority of people who actually are racist, have never spent any meaningful time around people from the race, that they pre-suppose themselves to hate.

    its basically a perfect correlation between homogeneous areas/segregated communities and bigotry. immigration is same way, the people who hate it the most have the least % immigrants in their communities.

    Travis went to Heights High which is 80% black, so he grew up with first-hand experiences I’m sure. Chances are very likely that he witnessed his share growing up.

    Athens is nearly all-white, so the basketball theory seems to apply pretty well for Joe. That, and his parents are probably just good people.

    I forget his name, but there was an older Dallas newscaster who would comment on issues of race.

    He brought up the fact that his father was massively racist, except against one black family that they knew personally, who were “different” and “good people.”

    Essentially, the ONE black family that they knew were upstanding citizens, and every other black family that they didn’t know were basically savages. Seems appropriate in the current climate.
